MSNBC Claims GOP Wants To End Democracy, Empowering China And Russia
MSNBC’s Joy Reid and Deep State Radio podcast host David Rothkopf spent Tuesday’s edition of The ReidOut trying to tie Donald Trump, the Republican Party, and the Supreme Court to not just the end of democracy in the United States, but in Africa where Russia and China are increasing their influence.
MSNBC Fawns Over ‘Powerful,’ ‘Positive’ Biden Speech at the U.N.
President Biden made his 2023 address Tuesday morning to the United Nations General Assembly and, as predicted, the liberal media were there to swoon over it like North Korean propagandists. MSNBC played that role, touting it as a “comprehensive” set of remarks with “powerful” and “positive” messaging that showed concern for climate change and Ukraine.
The Pope’s Penchant for Polite Gibberish About Communist China
WASHINGTON -- There is still more gibberish emitting from the pope as he travels to and from the Far East. Now he is safely home in the Vatican, so only his close advisers will hear the claptrap that comes from him as he tries to placate the Red Chinese and the Russians and, who knows, maybe he is even aiming his rhetoric toward North Korea and the Palestinians. He has kind words for anyone…
The New York Times Vladimir Putin Op-Ed, 10 Years Later
Over the last several years it has become commonplace for media to accuse various Republicans and conservatives of promoting Russian interests, but exactly ten years ago this coming Monday the New York Times literally opened up its op-ed pages to Vladimir Putin to allow him to spread his propaganda.
The Russian Syndrome of Political Murder
WASHINGTON -- While verifying the authenticity of quotes in my new book, “How Do We Get Out of Here? Half a Century of Laughter and Mayhem at The American Spectator -- from Bobby Kennedy to Donald J. Trump,” I was brought to a standstill by one quote in particular. It is the work of a very fine historian done some 20 years ago, Helene Carrere d’Encausse. The quote reads as though it was a…
What’s Going on in Russia? Is Putin Asleep at the Wheel?
WASHINGTON -- There was a curious report in The Washington Post late last month. I saw it in no other newspaper. It began thus: “When Yevgeniy Prigozhin, the head of the Wagner mercenary group, launched his attempted mutiny on the morning of June 24, Vladimir Putin was paralyzed and unable to act decisively, according to Ukrainian and other security officials in Europe.” Did you get…
How Goes It for President Putin?
WASHINGTON -- Well, how are things going for Vladimir Putin? He has been showing a KGB sleuth’s cunning at warfare for over a year now, and he has been doing it against an enemy who is outgunned and outnumbered. Oh yes, and by the way, that enemy is also winning the war. All Putin’s forces have been able to win is the battle for Bakhmut, and Putin had to empty out a prison or two to do it. Of…
Ukraine, Inner Cities, and Character Attacks
This weekend, Tucker Carlson interviewed a bevy of Republican presidential candidates in Iowa. Despite the fact that polls show that nearly zero Americans consider the war in Ukraine to be a top voting priority, Carlson spent a disproportionate share of his time grilling the candidates over their position on Ukraine.
NYT Propagandist Smears Tucker Carlson, 'Jesus Is Out, Putin Is In'
The New York Times wrote yet another hit piece against former Fox News host and conservative media superstar Tucker Carlson for his performance moderating a Q&A session for the 2024 Republican presidential candidates at the Family Leadership conference in Des Moines, Iowa on Friday. The article smearing Carlson was written by Jonathan Weisman in which he falsely accused him of…
Scarborough: 'A Bit Rich' of Zelensky To Criticize Biden on NATO Entry
Joe Scarborough criticizes Ukrainian President Zelensky, saying it was "a bit rich" of him to complain about delays in making Ukraine a member of NATO in light of all the aid the US and Europe have given Ukraine in its war effort against Russia.
NBC’s Guthrie Actually Grills Blinken on Biden at NATO, War in Ukraine
Secretary of State Antony Blinken made the round Tuesday on the flagship morning news shows of ABC, CBS, and NBC and, as we saw in May with Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and in 2022 with National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan and Vice President Harris, NBC’s Today co-host Savannah Guthrie stood apart in repeatedly holding Blinken’s feet to the fire on President Biden…
What’s Playing at the Kennedy
WASHINGTON -- Last week in this space I wrote about culture and how essential it is to the politics of a nation. If the culture of a country is upbeat, the country will be fine. If the culture of a country is in decline, its politics will follow. Simply put, culture prefigures politics. Russia -- once referred to as the Soviet Union -- is an example of what I have in mind. Imagine mighty…
NY Post’s Nelson Grills WH on Biden Corruption, Farcical Press Access
Wednesday’s White House press briefing featured, among other happenings, a rare feat with not one but two bouts featuring Biden flunkies and the New York Post’s Steven Nelson as well as a sudden curiosity surrounding Tara Reade now that she’s emerged as a flunky herself for Russian dictator Vladimir Putin.
