Journalists, even opinion journalists and commentators, have a responsibility to at a very minimum not misrepresent reality to their audience, particularly regarding the health and competence of the President of the United States.

The last domino: How the Left engineered a fake moral high ground

Improper sexual behavior has recently caused a cascade of prominent figures to fall. In Hollywood, Weinstein, Spacey, and CK Louis were fired. In the media, Halperin and Thrush were fired for improper sexual behavior. Even titans of television, Charlie Rose and Matt Lauer, have been terminated because of improper sexual acts. On the political front, Congressman John Conyers and Senator Al Franken were accused of improper sexual behavior.

Conyers retired, and the word on the street is that Al Franken will resign tomorrow. Read all »

Amid media silence, social media pressure forces Walmart to drop ANTIFA clothing line, Amazon/Ebay continue to sell ANTIFA Gear

After a church shooting in 2015, the Left’s position was that the Confederate flag was a symbol of slavery and oppression. In response, giant corporations with Left leaning leadership quickly exercised power to unilaterally censor free speech. In June 2015, Amazon, Walmart, eBay and Sears all announced bans on the sale of the Confederate flag and related merchandise.

At the time, Walmart’s spokesperson said, “We never want to offend anyone with the products that we offer. We have taken steps to remove all items promoting the confederate flag from our assortment — whether in our stores or on our web site…We have a process in place to help lead us to the right decisions when it comes to the merchandise we sell. Still, at times, items make their way into our assortment improperly — this is one of those instances.”

An eBay spokesperson, said that the Confederate flag has “become a contemporary symbol of divisiveness and racism.” And was banning the sale of Confederate flags and “many items containing this image.”

Fast forward to December of 2017 when shoppers started reporting ANTIFA related clothing for sale on Walmart’s website and Amazon.com. ANTIFA has been labeled a domestic terrorism organization by the department of homeland security.

On December 2, 2017, searches for the confederate flag on Walmart and Amazon did not return any results but a search for ANTIFA returned flags and shirts for sale on both Amazon and Walmart. Until December 2nd, Walmart featured an ANTIFA clothing line.

Walmart’s shirt descriptions read as follows:

Enjoy this Anti Fa Rock Style White Font Men’s Black Sweatshirt. Made in Mexico of 100% COTTON for all-day comfort and features a Anti Fa Rock Style White Font graphic on the front. A ribbed crew neck and a straight hem complete the Long Sleeve Sweatshirt, which is available in color Black. This ‘We Are Anti Fa’ white AC/DC style font sweatshirt will express yourself inside the opposition to the ideology, organizations, governments and people from the far right (fascism). Just remember to keep creating a better world.

Searches for Confederate and ANTIFA returned dozens of products for sale on Ebay.

Reaction on Twitter was swift and merciless calling for a boycott of Amazon and Walmart during the all-important holiday season.

Selective censorship by giant globalist Left-leaning and unaccountable corporations is the worst kind of censorship possible, especially when these corporations choose to suppress historical symbols while choosing  to give voice to active terrorist organizations.

Disturbingly, the mainstream media is silent on the sale of terrorism related merchandise by America’s top merchants.

I’m a FrankenHugger: A bad excuse for very serious offenses by a US senator

Even a minor comedian quickly learns to read his room and adjust on the fly: The joke that fell flat on the gentleman on the back drew loud laughter from the group seated at a near table on the left.

Or, when gags that worked last week are not drawing a laugh this week.

With Al Franken, we are not dealing with just a savvy comedian, we’re dealing with a man who was able to turn his skills into being elected a United States senator.

Caveat emptor: glaring double standards & propaganda in media and comedy

“If we like you, we’ll forgive whatever you do,” that was the message that the 36 cast members of Saturday Night Live recently sent to the world with their open letter supporting their comedy colleague, Al Franken.

The open letter acknowledges Senator Franken’s actions and dismisses them, which runs contrary to the posture that these same people took against Judge Moore on their skits.

In the case of Roy Moore, unsubstantiated allegations that were denied by Judge Moore led to widespread calls for Judge Moore to drop out of the race on SNL, but, in the case of Al Franken, those same SNL cast members chose to side with the alleged aggressor, irrespective of the alleged acts and the damage those alleged acts caused the victims. What happened to justice, to the victims, to the calls for Senator Franken to step down?

It’s a classic example of politics trumping morality, an example that Saturday Night Live’s Michael Che readily admits:

Objective journalism and comedy is dead, replaced by opinion journalism and political propaganda controlled by factions who are eagerly willing to condemn one man’s actions while vehemently defending another who is accused of committing similar acts, simply because one person is better liked over another. That is the very definition of democracy and mob rule – the very things that the Founding Fathers sought to protect America from.

With respect to the consumption of any news or comedy media, the responsibility to distill truth from propaganda now squarely rests on the shoulders of the consumer: caveat emptor.

Following the money: media, sponsors, and foreign influence

Ingraham, Maloney on the media’s case of aggressive amnesia

In tonight’s show, Laura Ingraham could not have made a more exquisite example of the media’s aggressive amnesia.

When Juanita Broadderick told her story of Bill Clinton’s aggressive sexual advances in a hotel room, scarcely any mainstream journalist would dare touch the story. True, a few reports surfaced the story, but it was quickly forgotten – a rape allegation, forgotten. Read all »

With the Ingraham Angle, Fox looks to shut out the competition

Last night, Hannity gave a personal introduction of Ingraham’s new show and provided Laura Ingraham with a warm handoff – a clever strategy to carry over Hannity’s viewers into the 10pm slot. The launch of the Ingraham Angle seemed to follow a similar strategy to the launch of Hannity’s new timeslot – bringing in a long exclusive with White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, featuring candid coverage of everything from China & North Korea, to immigration, and the Mueller investigation.
