Israel’s Lesson for 2024: A Liberal Crackup
Conventional wisdom says voters don’t care about foreign policy. Nearly two years into Europe’s largest conflict since World War II, the conventional wisdom seemed to be right. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has had little effect on the race for the GOP presidential nomination and opened no room for a challenger to Joe Biden among the Democrats.

Nets FREAK Over ‘Hardline,’ ‘Hard-Right,’ ‘Staunch’ Speaker Johnson
House Republicans were finally able to elect a new House speaker on Wednesday afternoon, selecting Congressman Mike Johnson (R-LA) to fill a 22-day vacancy.

CNN And MSNBC Absurdly Compare Israel to Russia
According to CNN, Rula Jebreal is a “journalist and foreign policy analyst,” but as a Friday appearance on CNN This Morning proved, such analysis should not be taken too seriously as she compared Israel to Russia.
CNN's Tapper Compares Israel's Defense to Russian War Crimes
It’s obvious that Jake Tapper doesn’t understand how war works. Nor does he understand the difference between a nation defending itself and a nation committing war crimes. This all became evident Sunday during CNN’s State of the Union when Tapper interviewed Biden national security advisor Jake Sullivan and complained that Israel was forced to shut off the water and power supply in…
This Again? Doocy Calls Out KJP for Blaming Rising Crime on GOP
On Tuesday afternoon, the Fox News Channel’s Peter Doocy wasn’t having it as the ever-inept White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre reverted back to a years-long, cartoonish, pants-on-fire fable that Republicans are the true anti-cops, defund-the-police party in light of Monday night’s carjacking of Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX) in the Navy Yard section of Washington D.C.
ABC, CBS, NBC Scold House GOP for Holding Up More Ukraine Aid
On Thursday, Ukraine's president Volodymyr Zelenskyy made a visit to Washington D.C. to meet with President Joe Biden and congressional leadership to ask for more money to fight off Russia.

WATCH: NBC Hammers Blinken on Giving Iran Billions, Ukraine Funding
NBC’s Today co-host Savannah Guthrie has developed a surprisingly strong track for grilling Biden administration officials when they make the rounds of the broadcast network morning news shows, particularly on foreign policy.

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 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…
Mitchell Mourns High Gas Prices Won't Allow Biden To Cut Fossil Fuels
As President Biden prepares to travel to Arizona to declare a new national monument around The Grand Canyon, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell used her Tuesday show to lament how people’s basic needs to heat their homes and not break their wallets over gas prices have hurt his ability to cut back on fossil fuels. Mitchell and Politico White House editor Sam Stein also insisted that those gas prices have…

The liberal President of the United States recently invited the conservative Prime Minister of Italy to the White House to discuss matters of mutual concern including the war in Ukraine.
