Actress Allison Williams: ‘My Dad Would Have Voted for Obama a Third Time’

Sat, 11/25/2017 - 17:45
<p>Where does acting end and reality begin? In a movie now in rotation on HBO, actress Allison Williams, the daughter of MSNBC anchor Brian Williams, declares: “My dad would have voted for Obama a third time if he could have. Like, the love is so real.” Sounds perfectly plausible that such sentiment would apply to her real life father, the disgraced ousted anchor of the <em>NBC Nightly News.</em> I stumbled upon the line in <em>Get Out</em>, a horror movie from Universal released in February. </p>

Morning Joe Showcases MSNBC’s Double Standard on Sex Abuse Allegations Against Democrats

Tue, 11/21/2017 - 23:30
<p>In spite of repeated proclamations from MSNBC pundits that anyone expressing a scintilla of skepticism about any claims of sexual misconduct must therefore support that gross misbehavior, MSNBC’s best and brightest repeatedly broke this self-imposed standard over the past week vis-a-vis the Al Franken sexual assault allegations. <em>Morning Joe</em> added to this shamelessly hypocritical coverage on Tuesday, questioning if the latest Franken accuser can “prove” her accusation that Franken shoved his tongue in her mouth. The hosts also waffled on whether or not Franken should suffer any serious consequences for his alleged sexual crimes, with co-host Willie Geist wondering whether Franken should be treated as a “pariah” and “have his life ruined and thrown out.”</p>

LAT Columnist Opposes NFL Protests and Kaepernick's GQ Citizenship Honor

Tue, 11/21/2017 - 22:28
<p>Brace yourself for two big surprises: 1) A majority of Californians oppose national anthem kneeling protests and 2) a prominent columnist for the <em>Los Angeles Times</em> rejects <em>GQ</em> magazine's selection of Colin Kaepernick as its "citizen of the year." LAT columnist George Skelton says good citizens vote in elections and since Kaepernick admitted he doesn't vote, he's hardly qualified for citizenship awards.</p>

Ramos Fails to Ask Tough Questions of Residente in Softball Interview

Tue, 11/21/2017 - 22:01
<p>Univision senior news anchor Jorge Ramos continues to push predictably one-sided coverage of the aftermath of Hurricane María’s devastation in Puerto Rico. As evidenced in his weekly <em>Al Punto </em>program, even a known terrorist sympathizer is an acceptable guest so long as he contributes to Ramos' favored narrative, which is decidely both anti-Trump and against the current Governor of Puerto Rico, Ricardo Rosselló.</p>

Tue, 11/21/2017 - 20:29
<p>In light of all the accusations of sexual misconduct, harassment and assault coming out now against liberals and Democrats, some on the left are hunkering down and sticking to their partisan politics moreso than ever. Longtime host of <em>The View</em> Joy Behar has been increasingly uncomfortable in the past few weeks, as the ABC panel has brought up the allegations against Harvey Weinstein, Al Franken, Louis C.K. and now Charlie Rose.</p>

Being Shoved Into Meaninglessness

Tue, 11/21/2017 - 19:10
<p>I'm an advocate of higher education and all, but so much for assuming that the development of common sense and sound judgment are part of the package. A Pew Research Center poll found that 77 percent of Democrats with a bachelor's degree or more believe a person's gender can be different from the sex they were "assigned at birth." You'll remember that Democrats are the party of science, and Republicans the Neanderthal science-deniers.</p>

NYT Op-Ed: I Feel ‘Guilty’ Calling For ‘Sacrifice’ of Al Franken , ‘I Adore Him’

Tue, 11/21/2017 - 18:47
<p>Last week, <em>New York Times</em> columnist Michelle Goldberg wrote an op-ed calling for Al Franken to resign in light of radio broadcaster Leeann Tweeden’s claims that the Democratic senator sexually assaulted her multiple times while on a USO tour to the Middle East to entertain American troops back in 2006. However, on Monday, Goldberg published another piece retracting her original call for Franken to be replaced. She primarily based her new argument on the grounds that Franken’s support for “women’s rights” should preclude him from being subjected to feminists’ purported standards for alleged sexual abusers. Goldberg also fretted that getting rid of the senator at this point would set a dangerous precedent that would “risk unilateral disarmament” for Democrats in the political arena.</p>

One clone even paws her on the shoulder: "Hi, I'm Charlie Rose." The original Rose then says "He likes you!"</p>

Tue, 11/21/2017 - 15:55
<p>The Left is incessantly freaking about all sorts of things - about which very little freaking is actually necessary. The Media is - by-and-large - the Left’s megaphone. About whatever the Left is freaking - you’ll find the Media freaking. Only louder, with many, MANY more outlets with which to amplify the freaking. The advent of the Internet - has exponentially increased the number of outlets through which the Media can freak. </p>
