It has become nearly impossible to take the New York Times seriously. Even those who appreciate the Times regularly quote it not because of its accuracy or insight, but because it’s taking a caustic (and usually careless) swipe at a president that they hate. That’s not a great look for the country’s “newspaper of record.”

The most recent demonstration of their embarrassing current state of affairs has to be education policy reporter Erica L.Continue Reading

“You don’t ever want a crisis to go to waste. It’s an opportunity to do things that you would otherwise avoid.”

So said former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who was President Obama’s chief of staff and an astute practitioner of smashmouth politics.

It’s worth remembering this as the Democrats and their media do everything they can to hype the dangers of the Wuhan coronavirus.  … Continue Reading

Under the guise of a venture called the “1619 Project,” revisionist history about race in America is being introduced into classrooms across America without undergoing the normal peer review expected of educational materials. August 2019 marked the birth of the project, a publication of The New York Times Magazine and the Pulitzer organization, containing a collection of essays and artistic works to commemorate the 400-year anniversary of slavery in America.… Continue Reading

Chicago Tribune writer Eric Zorn has offered a new paradigm for U.S. elections. Zorn says, “Let’s give Green Card holders (non-citizens who have legal status to reside permanently and work in the U.S.) voting rights. After all, they pay taxes!” His January 23rd column is titled, “Jesse White’s blunder makes me want to ask, what’s so terrible about allowing non-citizens to vote?Continue Reading

Another study has found that the mainstream media is overwhelmingly slanted in its coverage of the President. One could argue that Donald Trump is a very different kind of politician whose off the cuff, rough and tumble, shoot from the hip, clunky speaking style makes him an easy target, compared to previous presidents. Yet, when nearly all of the news coverage is found to be negative, objectivity and fairness are missing.… Continue Reading

Ricky Gervais, the perpetually snarky British comedian, set social media on fire after he mocked arrogant Hollywood in his opening monologue when hosting the Golden Globes.

“So if you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech, right?” he said. “You’re in no position to lecture the public — about anything. You know nothing about the real world.… Continue Reading

Written by Laurie Higgins

Mark Galli, editor-in-chief of the former evangelical flagship magazine Christianity Today (CT) wrote a stunning editorial calling for President Trump’s removal from office via either impeachment or the next election. While acknowledging that “Democrats have had it out for him from day one, and therefore nearly everything they do is under a cloud of partisan suspicion,” Galli remarkably asserts that the case for Trump’s removal by hook or crook is indisputable:

But the facts in this instance are unambiguous: The president of the United States attempted to use his political power to coerce a foreign leader to harass and discredit one of the president’s political opponents.

A few weeks ago, U.S. Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA) appeared on Mark Levin’s Fox News show, “Life, Liberty & Levin.” Near the end, he talked about how he and his staff put out a memo in early 2018 “to expose the counterintelligence malfeasance that was occurring in the FBI” in the search for Russian “collusion” with Donald Trump. The media did all kinds of stories about how the Republicans were concocting “conspiracy theories” and destroying the nation’s law enforcement agencies.… Continue Reading

What sets our current age apart from previous ones is not only technological wonders but the shocking abandonment of truth.

For Marxists, a lie is as good as truth if it works to advance their cause.  A case in point was a recent article on the front page of The Washington Posts Sunday Outlook section.  Next to a large, serious portrait, the headline proclaimed: “Barack Obama: Conservative.”  … Continue Reading
