Scarborough Lectures Vietnamese Refugee on Saigon, NBCer Fires Back

August 23rd, 2021 8:45 PM

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough made a fool out of himself on Sunday (he wasn’t even on his show) after tweeting an image of The New York Times Sunday Review front page comparing the fall of Kabul to the fall of Saigon. The self-righteous blowhard lectured the paper about how the obviously similar situations were nothing alike. The kicker? The author of the article was a Vietnamese-…

Lessons From Afghanistan

August 17th, 2021 10:54 PM

You have to give President Biden credit for consistency. Unfortunately, he has been consistently wrong. As Robert Gates, former defense secretary in the Obama administration once put it, Biden has "been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades." Biden’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan (and former President…

NBC's Engel Blasts Biden: 100 Times Worse than Saigon

August 17th, 2021 12:20 PM

In all my many years of blogging MSM outbursts against Republican presidents, I've never seen anyone angrier Richard Engel about Biden's Afghanistan fiasco. Well, there was Keith Olbermann. But for present purposes, let's leave aside the clinically disturbed. In a piece with which Morning Joe opened today's show, Engel absolutely unleashed on the Biden administration. Rolling heartbreaking…

Penalty for Early Withdrawal

July 13th, 2021 7:43 PM

Retirement plans warn of a “penalty for early withdrawal.” Might that also apply to the withdrawal of American and NATO forces from Afghanistan? If you set aside the victory by coalition forces that expelled Saddam Hussein's overmatched troops from Kuwait in 1991, the U.S. has not won a war since World War II. Not in Korea. Not in Vietnam and now, says President Biden, Afghanistan is a war we…

Five Myths About Socialism, Part Two

February 11th, 2021 12:24 AM

Last week, I reported on two myths about socialism. My new video covers three more. Myth No. 3: Socialism works if it's "democratic." As the Democratic Socialists of America put it, "Society should be run democratically -- to meet public needs, not to make profits for a few." Sounds nice. If socialists are elected, then we'll have a more just society. But Venezuela's socialists were…

Five Myths About Socialism, Part One

February 4th, 2021 7:52 PM

People hate America's big disparities in wealth. It's a reason why, among young people, socialism is as popular as capitalism. The Democratic Socialists of America want a country based on "freedom, equality and solidarity." That sure sounds good. But does socialism bring that? My new video debunks several myths about socialism. One reason for socialism's continued appeal is linguist Noam…

On Morning Joe, Adrian Wooldridge, a columnist at The Economist, says that unlike the US, China passes the "good government" test. He makes his comment in the context of discussing the way various countries have dealt with the coronavirus pandemic, but offers no qualifier as to his "good government" praise of China.

April 27th, 2020 10:21 PM
After some uncertainty about the future of White House Coronavirus Task Force briefings, Monday’s episode went off without a hitch in the Rose Garden and the questions were relatively fair and uncontroversial. That was until New York magazine’s Olivia Nuzzi was granted the final question and, despite the adorations from fellow liberal journalists afterward, she stood on the graves of…

When on Morning Joe, Donny Deutsch praised President Trump's restraint on Iran, Joe Scarborough interjected to clarify that Deutsch was only referring to Trump's restraint in regard to attacking Iran.

Acosta Loses It After Hanoi Presser, Makes False Claim About WH Press

February 28th, 2019 4:19 AM
An hour after he trumpeted Thursday’s abrupt end of the second U.S.-North Korea summit, CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta appeared in need of a safe space following President Trump’s Hanoi press conference. Acosta wasn’t called on, so he aired his grievances on CNN while falsely suggesting the President had “steered clear largely” of the White House…
