Liberal D.C. writer explains how Mark Halperin's assault on our politics was even worse than the perv stuff
What made the revelation of Mark Halperin’s perviness somewhat surprising is that he always came across as a fairly dull, straightlaced guy. We now know he was anything but that, his on-air persona suggested he was something of a “voice of reason” when it came to discussing politics.

Former New Republic writer Eve Fairbanks has a very different perspective on that, and I want to share it with you because she’s speaking to an issue that has bothered me for a very long time. It’s about how so much of what passes as reporting in the political world is in fact little more than trivia and gossip - things presented as monumentally important when in fact they are nothing of the sort.

THE SOROS DISTRICT ATTORNEY-BUYING BINGE

THE SOROS DISTRICT ATTORNEY-BUYING BINGE
Left-wing currency manipulator George Soros’s push to radically reshape the judiciary and elect extremist district attorneys across the country to weaken law enforcement and protect lawless sanctuary cities is bearing fruit.

Soros has been pouring money into local elections because he supports local efforts to resist U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and wants to cripple police in order to advance the neo-Marxist abstraction known as social justice that simplistically breaks the world down into race, class, and sex or gender. Radicals claim that American laws and institutions are inherently corrupt and that these systems protect, for example, wealthy, white, native-born, non-disabled males at the expense of everyone else.


CA’s Capitol ‘Unwanted Sexual Advances’ Problem and Official Cover Ups

CA's Capitol 'Unwanted Sexual Advances' Problem and Official Cover Ups
With the casting couch being front page headlines in Hollywood, New York, Washington D.C. and in California’s State Capitol,“unwanted sexual advances” has become the latest unfortunate phrase in today’s news pages. Common to most stories is how perpetrators have protected themselves, with the help of high placed accomplices.

My previous article, “Capitol Cesspool: Dem. Sen. Nancy Skinner Involved in Cover-Up of Sexual Harassment?” identified just how deep the California Capitol swamp is, with then-Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner, head of the Assembly Rules Committee, covering up sexual harassment in the Assembly in 2009.

Watch: The Good News they are not telling you about

“Things are getting demonstrably better in big ways and in small, and it is shameful and it is biased that these presidential accomplishments get so little coverage.”

On “The Ingraham Angle,” Laura Ingraham discussed President Donald J. Trump’s accomplishments during his first year as president.

Why the Left hates Thanksgiving

Why the Left hates Thanksgiving
Senator Schumer wants to argue about tax reform at Thanksgiving dinner. And he has a handy chart for lefties to take along and wave at their more conservative relatives while screeching about the 1 percent. In an article titled, “The Case for Ruining Thanksgiving,” GQ Magazine urges its readers to punish their parents who voted for Trump by staying away, insulting them, or ranting about police brutality.

The Scientific American wants readers to push Global Warming over mashed potatoes. The organizers of the Women’s March want you to accuse your uncle of having “white privilege.” Desperate lefties can text Standing Up for Racial Justice at the dinner table and get anti-Trump talking points. “You Should Absolutely Fight About Politics With Your Relatives This Thanksgiving,” Quartz insists.


The Luxury Hotel from Leftist Hell

The Luxury Hotel from Leftist Hell
The world’s first leftist anti-Trump hotel is here. You won’t be surprised to learn that it’s opening in Washington D.C. (with additional locations in Seattle, Hong Kong and San Francisco.)

And you’ll be even less surprised to hear that it’s a luxury hotel with organic mattresses and crystal healing. Instead of a Bible, there’ll be a United Nations pamphlet. The minibar will have an activist toolkit. Staffers will be hired for their commitment to leftist social justice. (That’s technically discrimination, but it’s not as if leftists live by the laws that they impose on the rest of us.)

A Time For Thanksgiving, A Time For Preparation

A Time For Thanksgiving
Today, I am thankful, grateful and blessed as an individual with a wonderful, loving and heathy family (and smart too..;).  And on this day, I would also like to take the opportunity as I do each year to thank my NYPD partner Mike for his contribution to our collective efforts in that old police adage of making sure we each went home safely at the end of each tour.

But, the truth be told, there is little to be thankful for outside of my personal world of family and friends, where this year everywhere feels different: as an individual, as a father, as an American, as a former US Marine, as an NRA firearms instructor, and believe that although we should always be thankful for the blessings that the Good Lord has bestowed upon the people of this exceptional nation, it is equally as important a time for a reality check and for preparation.

‘What are you thankful for?’ is the wrong question

Thanksgiving, Gratitude
You hear this question every year, especially if you watch dopey morning television shows. (Alas, is there any other kind?) Grinning, blow-dried anchors and anchorettes act like they’re mouthing a profundity as they gaze into the camera and put it to you, Greg!

“What are you thankful for?”

Stanford dean caught on film engineering disruption of Robert Spencer speech on Islam

Stanford dean caught on film engineering disruption of Robert Spencer speech on Islam
I spoke at Stanford University last week, and Stanford administrators and Leftist students made sure that as few people as possible heard me. In The Coming of the Third Reich, historian Richard J. Evans explains how, in the early days of National Socialist Germany, Stormtroopers (Brownshirts) “organized campaigns against unwanted professors in the local newspapers [and] staged mass disruptions of their lectures.”

And here we are again.

On cue, that brought a tweet from you-know-who:

Capitol Cesspool: Dem Sen. Nancy Skinner Involved in Cover-Up of Sexual Harassment?

Capitol Cesspool: Dem Sen. Nancy Skinner Involved in Cover-Up of Sexual Harassment?
The California Legislature has declared and legislated sex “a contractual event,” and redefined consensual sexual relations as “rape” if it occurs on a college campus—but not in their own offices. Perhaps lawmakers should have turned their attention inward to their own Capitol offices where lawmakers have been accused of a great deal of non-contractual sexual events.

Headlines Monday by KTLA screamed, “San Fernando Valley Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra to Resign Next Year Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations.” But the devil is in the details. The article then states, “Bocanegra announced he will not seek reelection Monday, citing ‘persistent rumors and speculation’ regarding sexual harassment claims.”

Do the anthem-kneelers care that rookie Officer Brian Shaw was murdered?

Do the anthem-kneelers care that rookie Officer Brian Shaw was murdered?
NFL anthem-kneelers and their ignorant defenders like Stan Van Gundy claim that all they want is “social justice,” a term with no real meaning whatsoever. What they actually want is a series of changes to the criminal justice system that would make it harder to keep criminals locked up, and harder for police officers to make a decision during a dangerous situation to defend themselves.

We talked some months back about how the anthem-kneelers were creating an atmosphere that’s making the streets more dangerous for police officers. Every time cops’ lives are threatened, they have to consider whether the use of force to protect themselves will result in media recriminations, riots or denunciations from opportunistic politicians.

Wow: Insanely left-wing Detroit Free Press editor, who loves John Conyers, calls on him to resign

Insanely left-wing Detroit Free Press editor, who loves John Conyers, calls on him to resign
I guess the power of what Hot Air’s Allahpundit has labeled “pervnado” is even more powerful than racial identity politics, at least at the moment. It probably doesn’t hurt that John Conyers is 88 years old and is hardly the future of the Democratic Party, but it’s hard to overstate the significance of Detroit Free Press editorial page editor Stephen Henderson calling for Conyers to resign.

Why? Because Henderson is about the biggest race-monger in America, and makes everything that ever happens about race. He doesn’t just stop with the stuff he writes for the Free Press, which is insane enough. How loony is Henderson? He actually wrote a column calling for Republican legislators to be murdered because they passed a school reform he didn’t like.

Sexual Harassment––Puhleeze!

Sexual Harassment––Puhleeze
I have a vivid memory of putting on my mother’s high heels and covering my head with the veiled hat she wore on special occasions. All decked out, I made my way up The Boulevard in New Haven to our neighbor’s home about four houses away.

And on that sojourn, I have an equally vivid memory of a man sitting on his porch and stopping me in my tracks with his comments. “Well well well, Missy, don’t we look pretty! And where would you be going today looking so beautiful?”

The lie that reelected Obama

The lie that reelected Obama
The previous administration deliberately understated al-Qaeda’s strength in 2012 so President Obama’s worse-than-useless counter-terrorism policy would seem like it was actually working, clearing the way for his easy reelection victory over Republican Mitt Romney, according to new evidence.

Intelligence was just one of the many areas of government activity relentlessly politicized by the Obama administration. In the Obama era, the Departments of Defense, Justice, and Education, to name only a few of the affected federal agencies, were also infested with determined radical ideologues bent on fundamentally transforming American society. Many of the left-wing extremists are still in positions of authority in the government as they undermine President Trump’s policies and directives every day.
