Rachel Maddow, Libertarian on One Issue

Written by Tim Graham

Rachel Maddow is one of America’s most popular proponents of socialism. Government is never big enough for Maddow. Bernie Sanders has a friend in Maddow. But when the subject is abortion, you will not find a more enthusiastic libertarian.

After the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments on Nov. 30 on Mississippi’s law banning the termination of unborn children after 15 weeks, Maddow championed lawyer Julie Rikelman for the Center for Reproductive Rights for arguing this is “about American women being forced by the government to give birth against their will.”… Continue Reading

Laughing At All Of The Democrats’ Lies

Written by Robert Knight

When the Soviet Union existed — 1917 to 1991 — its hapless citizens resorted to dark humor in the face of constant lies.

Open defiance could land them in the Siberian gulag or a KGB torture chamber in a dank basement near the Kremlin. So they learned to joke among themselves about absurd government claims, such as Pravda insisting that the economy was surging and the collective farms overflowing with food.

Here are a couple of typical Soviet jests:

Q: How does every Russian joke start?… Continue Reading

Climate Democracy Dies in Darkness

Written by Tim Graham

A British leftist group calling itself the Center for Countering Digital Hate has issued a report on what it calls the “Toxic Ten,” which are so-called fringe websites spreading “climate change denial.” The ten include our group, the Media Research Center, as well as Breitbart, The Daily Wire, Townhall Media, Newsmax, The Washington Times and The Western Journal.

So, any challenge to Greenpeace climate-crackdown orthodoxy is now classified as “toxic” and “digital hate.”… Continue Reading

‘Free Speech’ Media Allies with Transgender Tyranny

Written by Tim Graham

The left claims that their most urgent battle is to save democracy, but when it comes to any questioning of the LGBT lobby, they are the ones who sound like authoritarians. The overtones are unmistakable in the “news” coverage promoting “dozens” of employees walking out of Netflix in Los Angeles on Oct. 20 in protest. The target? A popular Dave Chappelle comedy special, “The Closer.”

Tens of thousands of anti-abortion advocates can assemble and be ignored, but assemble two dozen transgender lobbyists and NBC and PBS will treat it as momentous.… Continue Reading

The Teenage Girl Who Shall Not Be Mentioned

Written by Tim Graham

If we sat in a boardroom and tried to decide the kind of story that the liberal media is the most hostile to covering — hostile to the point of wishing it had never existed — it may be this: Teenage boy describing himself as “gender-fluid” accused of raping a girl in a high school bathroom.

This is a story that any liberal media outlet would want to spike, censor, ignore, squelch and bury six feet underground.… Continue Reading

‘They’ Are Controlling You. ‘They’ Are Silencing You.

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

This past week, on Labor Day, to be exact, I submitted my routine column to The Washington Times. The topic I chose was frankly quite simple and straightforward; many might rightly suggest it was even boring and mundane. My subject matter was disease immunity, something many of us kind of slept through in our freshman Biology 101 classes.

In my article, I spoke of how medical science has known for centuries that natural immunity derived from pathogenic exposure is critical to disease mitigation and control.… Continue Reading

Joe Walsh Wants More Bipartisanship, Which Means Less Joe Walsh

Written by Peter Heck

I admit I know very little about former one-term congressman Joe Walsh of Illinois. Some quick online research reveals that he was a tea party activist elected in the anti-Obamacare Republican wave of 2010. During his short tenure in office, Walsh appears to have carved out a reputation as a staunch and sometimes harsh critic of former President Obama, and a reliable vote for conservative policy.

When he lost his re-election bid to Tammy Duckworth in 2012, Walsh went on to host a conservative talk radio show before announcing a presidential primary run against Donald Trump‘s re-election bid in the 2020 cycle.… Continue Reading

Living In The Liberal Media’s ‘Twilight Zone’

Written by Robert Knight

We’re so far beyond media bias that we’ve entered the Twilight Zone, where nothing is as it seems.

Imagine, if you will, a secure border.  You can because the media are blacking out the reality. Hundreds of thousands of illegals are streaming into the United States and are being bused around the country. Despite the extreme severity of the crisis and its implications for America’s future, TV network coverage of the border has plummeted 96 percent since March, according to the Media Research Center.… Continue Reading

Cowardly Biden Hides from the Press on Afghanistan

Written by Tim Graham

The very supportive media environment around President Joe Biden has turned suddenly sour over this administration’s shoddy handling of Afghanistan. This debacle shouldn’t be buried and ignored by the press, like they’ve tried to do with the border crisis. But Biden’s gone back to hiding as a strategy, as he did in his 2020 presidential campaign.

For four days, the president disappeared from public view. Then he gave a speech on Aug.… Continue Reading

The Real Reason YouTube Silenced Rand Paul

Written by Charles Hurt

There is always the risk of taking fools and liars more seriously than they deserve. But then again Google-owned YouTube deserves every shred of scorn and ridicule we can still muster in these crazy, exhausting times.

Most recently, the cat video website YouTube silenced U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) — a medical doctor — for posting a video in which he stated his studied medical opinion about a vitally important medical issue.… Continue Reading
