Writing Sunday for our friends at National Review, senior writer Charles C.W.

January 28th, 2019 3:02 PM
For the latest print issue of National Review dated February 11, editor Charles C.W. Cooke offered one of the best eviscerations ever of the liberal media for their odious behavior, declaring them to be “[v]ain, languid, excitable, morbid, duplicitous, cheap, insular, mawkish, and possessed of a chronic self-obsession that would have made Dorian Gray blush” led by people like CNN’s Jim Acosta…

The legion of the perpetually aggrieved "white supremacy"-obsessed jumped on a Monday remark by Trump administration Attorney General Jeff Sessions to concoct a bogus "racial dogwhistle" when he used the term "Anglo-American heritage of law enforcement" in a speech to the National Sheriffs' Association.

Pundit: Trump Fits Right In With Crazy, Dumb Conservative Activists
December 20th, 2016 5:57 PM
Donald Trump is a visceral and emotional conservative, not a philosophical conservative, but that’s good enough for government work, suggests New York blogger Chait. The main aim of Chait’s Thursday post was to slap down the argument from some righty pundits that candidate Trump was, as Chait paraphrased it, “a non-ideological figure, or even a progressive…who chose the Republican Party for no…

Cooke called out the hypocrisy of the New York Times, as he posted a contrast, a Times flip-flop: a 2014 Editorial Board write-up on how the “Terror Watch Lists Run Amok” and a 2015 Editorial Board write-up on why Republicans are showing “Tough Talk and a Cowardly Vote on Terrorism” by refusing to let the terror watch lists run amok.
Salon Writer Calls Michelle Malkin a 'Right-Wing Rage Monkey'
October 5th, 2015 4:17 PM
Poor Gary Legum at Salon.com. How dare supporters of the right to keep and bear arms as clearly defined in the Constitution's Second Amendment push back against the gun control movement's cynical exploitation of Thursday's Roseburg, Oregon massacre?
Legum is outraged that "The right tells us (again) to ignore the elephant in the room." He must mean the fact that the area in question at Umpqua…

August 28th, 2015 2:11 AM
On Thursday, the CBS Evening News seized on the deadly shooting of two local news reporters in Roanoke, Virginia to promote the idea that gun control should be treated like “a public health issue” akin to seat belts, airbags, and anti-smoking campaigns.

September 13th, 2013 11:44 AM
It's comforting to know that some things don't change. Even though the news is dominated by the explosive situation in Syria and the tumult over the provisions of ObamaCare, Cable News Network's Piers Morgan still found time on Thursday to devote to his favorite subject: gun control.

Liberal Blogger Learns the Hard Way What It's Like to Be Conservative
August 20th, 2013 4:10 AM
As conservatives, we know what happens every time we criticize the policies of the liberal occupant of the White House: We're instantly branded as “racist” and “intolerant” while our views are quickly and summarily dismissed.
