Not News: Tax-Cut 'Crumbs' Were a Big Deal to Pelosi and Dems in 2011-2012

Sat, 01/13/2018 - 17:20
<p>On Thursday, House Democratic Party Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi characterized as "crumbs" the bonuses of $1,000 or more, pay raises of up to $3 per hour, and other benefits well over 100 companies have showered on over 2 million employees as a result of December's tax law passage. Given their track record, there's no reason to believe that the establishment press will report Pelosi's condescending remarks — or that they will remind their audience that in 2011 and 2012, the Obama administration and Democrats in Congress treated the prospect of workers losing $40 every other week in their paychecks as catastrophic.</p>

Bozell & Graham Column: Oprah's Distracting Golden Globes Lecture

Sat, 01/13/2018 - 12:43
<p>The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which hosts the Golden Globe Awards, may have provided the rocket fuel for Oprah Winfrey for President in 2020. Her acceptance speech for their Cecil B. DeMille Award struck the perfect pose for the Hollywood establishment. They have seen themselves as the uninterrupted social conscience of America for as long as they’ve made motion pictures. That’s ridiculous.</p>

Sat, 01/13/2018 - 12:20
<p>Don’t ask Jay Leno if he misses his gig as the former late-night host of NBC’s <em>The Tonight Show,</em> he’s quite content playing with his cars on his CNBC show <em>Jay Leno’s Garage,</em> as he told <em>The Hollywood Reporter.</em> He praised all the current hosts, but finds the tone under Trump depressing."You don't really watch late-night TV to get away from reality anymore; now it's more in your face."</p>

Laura Ingraham: Illegals Arrested in Denver Drug Bust Could Have Been DACA Amnesty-Eligible

Sat, 01/13/2018 - 03:56
<p>Thursday evening's <em>Ingraham Angle</em> show on Fox News spent much of its time on immigration and DACA, the Deferred Amnesty for Child Arrivals program which was unilaterally created without congressional approval by the Obama administration in 2012. In one particularly telling exchange, host Laura Ingraham highlighted a major drug bust in Denver after she learned that all six men arrested or wanted are in the U.S. illegally — something the <em>Denver Post</em> and two other Denver-area media outlets which have covered the story have all failed to report.</p>

Supposedly Trumpian Leader Declares 'Kill All Others' on Amazon Prime's 'Electric Dreams'

Sat, 01/13/2018 - 02:17
<p>Episode ten of Amazon Prime’s <em>Electric Dreams</em>, based off of science fiction author Philip K. Dick’s works, attempts to draw parallels between an evil dictator and President Trump. The last episode of the season, which was released January 12, is based off Dick’s short story, “The Hanging Man.” In the original story, a man discovers a dead body hanging from a lamppost, is the only one to react, and then discovers aliens have taken over some of the town members. But in <em>Electric Dreams</em>’ liberal version, retitled “Kill All Others,” a tyrannical political leader (Vera Farmiga) asserts, “kill all others,” to the disbelief of only one man, Philbert Noyce (Mel Rodriguez).</p>

NYT Bizarro World: Hits Walmart for Raising Worker Pay, Switches on Earmarks to Hit Trump

Sat, 01/13/2018 - 00:38
<p>When is increasing pay for hourly workers politically suspect? When are earmarks considered pork? When they are encouraged by Donald Trump, at least at the <em>New York Times</em>. Walmart can do no right in the eyes of the liberal paper. Michael Corkery managed to turn even the liberal-pleasing move against the despised company<strong>: </strong>"Walmart, the nation’s largest private employer, waded into the bumpy waters of partisan politics on Thursday, announcing that it will use some of its savings under the new tax bill to provide wage increases, bonuses and expanded benefits to its hourly workers."</p>

MSNBC's Johnson: 'Terrorist Sympathizer' Trump Is 'Enemy,' 'Danger' to Minorities

Sat, 01/13/2018 - 00:28
<p>On the Thursday edition of MSNBC's <em>All In</em>, The Root's politics editor and MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson demonstrated how difficult it is for liberal commentators to settle for giving sober criticism and avoid going into over the top hysterics when when reacting to President Donald Trump making incendiary comments that are actually worthy of rebuke. During a discussion of Trump reportedly deriding Haiti and other Third World nations as "shithole" countries, Johnson declared that the President is both an "enemy" to and a "clear and present danger to non-white people in America."  He also warned that Trump is a "terrorist sympathizer" that Democrats should not "negotiate" with whose policies would make the U.S. "in danger as a sovereign nation."</p>

Throughout the episode, Letterman makes various jokes acting as if Obama is still the president. At one point he mentions that Obama’s answer to a question “just makes me so happy you’re still president.” Later he fantasizes about Obama returning to the Oval Office after the interview. Obama cutely dashes Letterman’s hopes by explaining that if the Constitution didn’t prevent him from running again, his wife would.</p>

Tapper Finds 'Poetic Justice' in Wolff Book, Claims Seth Meyers Wouldn't Like Him Lobbing Insults

Fri, 01/12/2018 - 18:42
<p>CNN anchor Jake Tapper appeared on the show <em>Late Night</em> with liberal NBC talk-show Seth Meyers in the early hours of Friday morning. Unsurprisingly, Meyers gave Tapper a kind of victory lap for the contentious Sunday talking-over-each-other interview with Trump aide Stephen Miller. Tapper oddly suggested that if he called Trump something insulting like a “flunky,” that Seth Meyers would be disappointed and wished he hadn’t done that. Excuse me? Seth Meyers, who called Anthony Scaramucci a “human pinky ring”? And compared Trump to a serial killer?</p>
