The Making of the Fox News White House

In January, during the longest government shutdown in America’s history, President Donald Trump rode in a motorcade through Hidalgo County, Texas, eventually stopping on a grassy bluff overlooking the Rio Grande. The White House wanted to dramatize what Trump was portraying as a national emergency: the need to build a wall along the Mexican border. The presence of armored vehicles, bales of confiscated marijuana, and federal agents in flak jackets underscored the message.

Fox Rebukes Sean Hannity’s and Jeanine Pirro’s Participation in a Trump Rally

The line between the Trump White House and Fox has always been a little blurry, but in that moment on Monday night at the Show Me Center at Southeast Missouri State University at least, the fusion of president and network seemed complete. Mr. Trump has long relied on the network as his outlet of choice. His vice president, cabinet secretaries and staff members appear with great regularity. Indeed, Mr. Trump gave an interview to Mr. Hannity moments before taking the stage

Conservatives mount a whisper campaign smearing Khashoggi in defense of Trump

Hard-line Republicans and conservative commentators are mounting a dark whisper campaign against Jamal Khashoggi that is designed to protect President Trump from criticism of his handling of the dissident journalist’s alleged murder by Saudi Arabian operatives — and support Trump’s continued aversion to a forceful response to the oil-rich desert kingdom.

Local News Anchors Are Being Forced to Deliver Pro-Trump Propaganda

A family of conservative multimillionaires owns Sinclair Broadcast Group. And Sinclair Broadcast Group is on the cusp of owning enough local television stations to reach 70 percent of American households. Every news station under Sinclair’s umbrella is required to syndicate commentary that comports with its owners’ ideological views.

This is how Right Wing Media sees government shot down: Dems Are Obstructionist Losers

“Senate Democrats own the Schumer Shutdown. Tonight, they put politics above our national security, military families, vulnerable children, and our country’s ability to serve all Americans,” Sanders said in a statement. “We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands. This is the behavior of obstructionist losers, not legislators.”

Right Wing Messaging: Dems. Begin to Crack – Rep. Gutierrez Shows Reluctant Support for Funding the Wall

Democratic Congressman Luis Gutierrez of Illinois appeared on CNN today, where he expressed his reluctant willingness to fund a southern border wall in exchange for amnesty for 800,000-or-so “dreamers.” Dreamers are the illegal aliens brought into the country as children who currently receive government protection form deportation.

No, Trump’s approval among black Americans hasn’t doubled

Steve Bannon Steps Down From Breitbart Post

Stephen K. Bannon is stepping down from his post as executive chairman of Breitbart News, the company announced Tuesday. Mr.  Bannon’s departure, which was forced by a onetime financial patron, Rebekah Mercer, comes as Mr. Bannon remained unable to quell the furor  over remarks attributed to him in a new book in which he questions President Trump’s mental fitness and disparages his elder son, Donald Trump Jr.

No longer a ‘lonely battle’: How the campaign against the Mueller probe has taken hold

For months, efforts to discredit special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign flickered at the fringes of political debate. Now, the allegation that FBI and Justice Department officials are part of a broad conspiracy against President Trump is suddenly center stage, amplified by conservative  activists, GOP lawmakers, right-leaning media and the president himself.

Why U.S. Threats to U.N. Over Jerusalem Are Empty

The right wing in the United States has long spread around the false story that the US government gives away enormous amounts of money to other countries. Opinion polls show that many Americans think it is as much as 25% of the $4.094 trillion budget, which would be a trillion dollars in aid. That is hilariously absurd. The actual US foreign aid budget is $41.9 billion, about one percent of the Federal budget.

The moment when the best interests of defense contractors start determining what is in the national security interest of our country, the tail has begun to wag the dog. This is the concern of Rand Paul, regarding the recent arms deal with Saudi Arabia.

Stein’s Recount Crusade In Pennsylvania Riddled With Hurdles…Like The Fact That She Missed The Deadline

Dear Greens, liberals, progressives, and any other Clinton supporter. Clinton lost the election. There was no tampering, the Obama administration has even confirmed that much, and it’s time to make way  for President Donald J. Trump. This is just becoming an exercise in cruelty, where the Left is keeping some hope alive when in reality—all is lost. Old, sick Hillary is now becoming sore loser Hillary—and losing with grace has gone right out the window.

Obama Plans to Rule America Outside the White House

Barack Obama has two faces. After Trump’s victory and Hillary’s defeat, the public Obama has been gracious and diplomatic. His lectures  to Trump, directly and indirectly, are couched in praise. He echoed the feeling of millions on both sides when he said, "We are now all rooting for his success”. That’s a lie. Or rather a disguise.

Protesting, privileged college kids know nothing about social injustice

As you can tell, I am not particularly impressed with the social justice engagement of the precious little pop tarts who decided to skip class to march - 40 people strong! - down a Main Line thoroughfare to let the suburban police department that keeps them safe know it is nothing but a ritzy extension of the KKK.

The Importance of Jared Kushner

Aghast, there are cries of nepotism with reference to a 1967 law that was belatedly targeted at President John F. Kennedy’s appointment of brother Bobby as Attorney General. The legislation might be called LBJ’s revenge as Lyndon Johnson hated Bobby Kennedy and this was, in the way of the famously vengeful LBJ, a way of getting even with the Kennedys, although by 1967 RFK was comfortably ensconced in the U.S. Senate representing New York.

They Have Learned Nothing

Democrats blame the voters for being duped, self-destructive, even stupid.  This year, with the rejection of Hillary Clinton, we’ve gone from being a racist nation that twice elected a black man to being a racist and sexist nation for twice not electing a woman – and for electing Trump. Oddly, the black man who beat her the first time avoided the sexist label because the left manufactures the labels. In the ultimate fit of irony, leftists even have taken to blaming media bias for their losses.

Steve Bannon Made Breitbart a Space for Pro-Israel Writers and Anti-Semitic Readers

Since Steven Bannon is going to be one of the president’s most senior aides, he and the website he runs, Breitbart News, deserve an unusual amount of scrutiny. But Breitbart, the site Bannon calls “the platform for the alt-right,” read ardently by white supremacists and anti-Semites, has launched a campaign to shut down critics who say that its longtime director is himself an anti-Jewish racist.

List of Debunked Groper Allegations by Corrupt Media Against Donald Trump

Trump Makes the Case for Jailing Hillary

At the lowest point in the second presidential debate Hillary Clinton tried to blame her compulsive lying on Abraham Lincoln. Not the real Lincoln, but the fictional version depicted in the Spielberg movie. Hillary’s lies come apart within 5 minutes of being told. And yet nothing is ever her fault. Previously she had blamed her rogue email operation on Colin Powell. Now she decided to blame her lies on Lincoln.
