In an interview with The Huffington Post published on Monday night, Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert McDonald admitted to falsely claiming in a segment on January 30's CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley on January 30 that he had served in U.S. Army Special Forces during his service from mid-1970s to 1980.

McDonald retracted what he had told a homeless veteran in Los Angeles by saying, in part, that “I have no excuse,” “I was not in special forces,” and had “no intent in any way to describe my record any different than it is.”

If you are persecuted in America for living your Christian faith, it's all your fault. At least that's what an expert at the Huffington Post Religion section claims in an odd piece that simultaneously acknowledges and denies the existence of concentrated anti-Christian sentiment in the United States.

The headline was “Christians to Blame for the 'War on Christianity'”. The author was Dale Hansen, a political blogger for the Detroit News.

Don’t worry liberals! Jon Stewart may be going, but a new “fake news” program is stepping in to tell you what to think, courtesy of the far-left Huffington Post. 

Starting March 27, a weekly, hour-long Friday night series will feature a Daily Show-esque mix of satirical news and entertainment. The show will be featured on the live streaming video website, HuffPostLive and on the main homepage, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Didn’t you know? Hashtags and publicity stunts are “changing the world” for the better? Thank God the Huffington Post is here to remind liberals of all the good they do – or would do, if empty gestures and moral preening actually accomplished something. Hash tags, silly street theater, bumper-sticker profundity, spewing cooked statistics and hypersensitivity to “micro-aggressions" – they’re all in the modern liberal toolbox. And now, HuffPo writer Nina Bahadur wants to add cartoons to that mix in her piece, “How Women are Changing the World, Shown in Gorgeous Illustrations.” Cartoonish pictures about cartoonish gestures. How post-modern.

Very few things drive leftists to distraction more than a strong Republican or conservative woman achieving political power.

Joni Ernst is a perfect example. The strong-willed freshman Senator from Iowa describes herself in three words: "Mother. Soldier. Leader." Imagine the howls of outrage if a conservative went after a liberal female combat veteran as Andrew Reinbach at Huffington Post did on Friday. Reinbach tried to claim that Ernst is not really a combat veteran, and questioned "The Honor of Senator Joni Ernst."

You’ve heard of ‘white privilege’ maybe even ‘male privilege’ or ‘straight privilege.’ It’s a term liberals foist upon people who supposedly have better lives to the disadvantage of others, simply because they fit into a mainstream demographic. Mostly, it’s a grad-level way of saying, “Shut up.” 

And of course, liberals being liberals, they’re always looking to expand the whining franchise (or should that be disenfranchise?)

Did you know that the future of Obamacare relies on the credibilty of former Senator Ben "Cornhusker Kickback" Nelson? Yes, the Huffington Post and other liberal media outlets seem to think that what Nelson tells us was going on in his mind at the time that Obamacare passed is crucial to the outcome of the King vs Burwell case at the Supreme Court.

Appearing on MSNBC's Morning Joe on Tuesday, Huffington Post reporter Sam Stein worried that the Clinton political machine would be unable to compete with funding from Charles and David Koch during the 2016 presidential campaign: "I mean, Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton will be scratching lotto tickets, I think, for the next week just trying to catch up with the $889 million that the Koch brothers are going to put in here."

The Huffington Post thinks it has some big scoop about Senator Ted Cruz's response to Barack Obama's State Of The Union address last night. However, after all the hype, the scoop falls laughably flat when you actually see his response.

Friday is National Religious Freedom Day, and what better time to consider where threats to American religious freedom originate. (Hint – it’s not with Bible-thumping Baptist preachers or dogmatic Catholic cardinals.)

Progressives, who love to congratulate themselves on their tolerance and pluralism, are increasing intolerant when it comes to religion – or Christianity, anyway. Muslims seem to get a pass. On college campuses, Christian groups that refuse to allow non-believers to become officers have been forced to disband. In South Carolina, the atheist group Freedom from Religion Foundation pressured a privately-owned restaurant to cease offering discounts to customers who pray before their meals. The groups suggested Mary’s Gourmet Diner was in violation of the Civil Rights Act.

The Huffington Post keeps chipping away at its less than favorable credibility. Just a few days ago, they claimed to have been in contact with a source that said he was the “best friend” of an 18 year old black man who was shot by police in a St. Louis suburb – drawing some to compare the recent police shooting to that of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. It turns out their "friend" turned out to be a fraud, who duped the website through Twitter messages.

Here’s a question: how can you tell when you are reading “news” from the Huffington Post?  Answer:  When both views on a highly controversial topic are NOT given…meaning, only the liberal view.

Case in point: An article the Huffington Post wrote on Monday about the Federal appeals court declaring a North Carolina law requiring abortion providers to show a woman the ultrasound and describing the images in detail before going through an abortion as unconstitutional.
