Do Leftists Believe What They Say?

Truth is not a left-wing value. X I first discovered this as a graduate student studying the Soviet Union and left-wing ideologies at the Russian Institute of Columbia University School of International Affairs. Everything I have learned since has confirmed this view. Individuals on both the left and right lie. Individuals on both the left […]

Jussie Smollett And The ‘Fake First’ Media

The left would expect mere mortals to understand that as opposed to them, the left rises above the rumormongering and misinformation of social media. As with so much else regarding the left, that’s nonsense. It cuts, pastes and amplifies the unsubstantiated ardor of liberal Twitter, Facebook and Instagram at will — if it advances the […]

Why Did So Many Eagerly Buy Jussie Smollet’s Story?

Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., not only believed black and openly gay actor Jussie Smollett and his tale of being attacked by two N-word-spouting homophobic Trump-supporters, she — and many other big-name Democrats — knew exactly whom to blame. X Waters said: “I know Jussie. I love him. His family’s a friend of mine. I know […]

Changing Reality With Words

The reinvention of vocabulary can often be more effective than any social protest movement. Malarial swamps can become healthy “wetlands.” Fetid “dumps” are often rebranded as green “landfills.” X Global warming was once a worry about too much heat. It implied that man-made carbon emissions had so warmed the planet that life as we knew […]

Andrew McCabe, The Justice Department’s Jussie Smollett

Just like his boss and hero former FBI Director James Comey, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe has written a Trump-trashing book. And like Comey, he’s getting hours and hours of airtime to sell laughable notions, like the idea that the FBI has been utterly nonpartisan. X This man will say anything. Truth means nothing. […]

NFL’s Kaepernick Still Calls Criminal Justice System ‘Racist’ — Despite Reforms And Lack Of Evidence

Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s attorney accused the musical group Maroon 5 of crossing the “picket line” to perform at the Super Bowl and called the explanation by Adam Levine, the lead singer of the musical group, a “cop-out.” X Kaepernick, when he played in 2016, kneeled during the national anthem to protest what he […]

Trump’s State of the Union Address Meets Late-Night Resistance

The liberal desire to rebut President Trump is so overwhelming that they’re now “fact-checking” him live or the moment he utters his last sentence. There is an Official Democratic Politician Rebuttal of the State of the Union, but why bother? They need only give links to national “news” sites, since the “news” anchors will offer […]

Apple Isn’t So Interested In Diversity After All

In a recent federal filing before the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, lawyers for Apple (AAPL) maintained that the tech giant should not have to consider increasing its leadership’s ideological diversity and that arguments made in support of greater viewpoint variance were “without merit.” X The SEC disagreed, sending Apple’s legal team a stunning rebuke.

The Republicas’ ‘Pouncing’ Problem

In the past few weeks, prominent Democrats have endorsed infanticide; admitted to dressing in blackface; called for an end to fossil fuels, airplanes and farting cows; and trafficked in open anti-Semitism. None of this is a serious problem for many in the media. For members of the media, the real story is that Republicans keep […]

Whistling Past The ‘Green New Deal’

A bold new crew of radicals swept into Congress to remake environmental policies, and the news media immediately called out their poisonous and extreme proposals. X If you’re thinking about this freshman class of knuckleheads who has given us the 2019 “Green New Deal,” the answer is no. We’re not talking about them. We’re talking […]
