Bozell & Graham Column: Showtime Fakes News for the Left

Sat, 07/21/2018 - 12:24
<p>CBS’s pay-cable Showtime channel is the latest backer of con artist/”comedian” Sacha Baron Cohen’s performance art, as in the movies <em>Borat</em> and <em>Bruno.</em> It’s a new TV show called <em>Who Is America? </em>and is designed, as usual, to mock Americans – mostly conservatives -- as gullible and stupid.</p>

Snopes Throws 'False' Flag at Daily Wire for True Story on Registering Illegal Aliens to Vote

Sat, 07/21/2018 - 01:19
<p>Those "independent fact checkers" at Snopes threw a red flag at conservative websites like the Daily Wire for a "mixture" of truth and falsehood on the question "Is San Francisco Registering ‘Illegal Aliens’ to Vote?" You have to get a kick out of the objection to the I-word and the A-word. They prefer "non-citizens." We wouldn't call their site "non-partisan."  This is their breakdown, and as you can see, they object to what it<em> sounds like, </em>not how accurate it is: </p>

NY Times' Gross Hypocrisy on Russia Threat: Romney's 2012 Warnings 'Reckless and Unworthy'

Fri, 07/20/2018 - 23:01
<p>The media is ready to convict President Trump of “treason” for his shaky summit in Helsinki with Russian dictator Vladimir Putin and has been obsessed with Trump’s supposed “collusion” with Russia during the 2016 election campaign. But this new-found fear of all things Russia is more than a little politically expedient. The <em>New York Times</em> is just one outlet that dismissed the very idea of Russia as a threat back in the spring of 2012, mocking then-Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney:"<strong> </strong>Two decades after the end of the cold war, Mitt Romney still considers Russia to be America’s ‘No. 1 geopolitical foe.’ His comments display either a shocking lack of knowledge about international affairs or just craven politics. Either way, they are reckless and unworthy of a major presidential contender."</p>

Politico Editor: Trump Body Language Reveals Possible Russia Collusion

Fri, 07/20/2018 - 22:13
<p>Politico's editor in chief Blake Hounshell has proclaimed on July 20 that he is no longer a skeptic of Trump-Russia collusion. See, back in February, on the heels of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's  indictment of a number of Russian companies but with no finding of collusion with any American,  Hounshell declared himself a skeptic. However, now that a second set of indictments of Russians have been issued also with no evidence presented of collusion with any Americans, Hounshell suddenly has declared himself as no longer being a skeptic. </p> <p>So what caused Hounshell to stop being a skeptic despite no evidence of collusion by Mueller and his merry band of intrepid Democrats intensely investigating this matter for over a year? In large part it was because of Trump's body language at Helsinki. I kid you not. </p>

Alt-Left Insanity: Raising My Child Amid my Climate Apocalypse Fantasies

Fri, 07/20/2018 - 22:03
<p>To suffer through Roy Scranton’s New York Times oped, “Raising My Child in a Doomed World,” is to come away wondering how a guy so hang-dog depressing and lacking in discernable masculine qualities managed to attract a woman -- sorry, a “partner” in Scranton-speak -- at all, let alone got her to procreate with him.</p>

NYT’s Stephens Demands Bolton, Pompeo Resign for the Good of the Constitution, Stick It to Trump

Fri, 07/20/2018 - 13:59

Fri, 07/20/2018 - 13:04

Thu, 07/19/2018 - 23:30
