March 18th, 2018 9:47 PM
Remember all those hilarious 2016 election night videos? Well, the good news is that a couple of the best scenes of liberal desolation that night have remained unseen...until now.

Hypocritical NYT: Trump-Emboldened ‘Autocrats Steamroll Opposition'
February 3rd, 2018 10:53 AM
President Trump isn’t just empowering dictators by criticizing the mainstream press, he’s also doing so by abandoning the promotion of human rights overseas. That’s the thrust of Friday’s front-page New York Times story by Cairo bureau chief Declan Walsh, “In Unquestioning U.S. Embrace, Autocrats Steamroll Opposition.” The text box: “A president’s…
Samantha Power Discusses Her Hillary 'Victory' Party HBO Documentary
January 16th, 2018 1:08 PM
Schadenfreude, schadenfreude, oh beautiful, beautiful schadenfreude! You will soon be able to enjoy some great Election Night 2016 schadenfreude again in the form of HBO's documentary, The Final Year, which will soon be broadcast on that network. As you can see from the trailer below it appears to be mostly a big borefest of Obama administration hype about how wonderful and wise they were.…
Press Avoids Naming Obama, Hillary in Covering Libya Slavery 'Debacle'
December 2nd, 2017 8:59 PM
Beginning in mid-November, the international press noticed that a grisly practice had returned to Libya: slave auctions taking place monthly in at least nine locations, in territory controlled by the United Nations-backed Libyan Government of National Accord. No news coverage I have seen has reminded readers that the chain of events leading to this outrageous situation started with the toppling…

On Thursday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke at the United Nations. As described by George Jahn at the Associated Press, it was "an impassioned speech interspersed with bouts of dramatic silence."
Jahn failed to report the absence of U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power and Secretary of State John Kerry. So did Rick Gladstone and Judi Rudoren at the New York Times. An…
Ex-Obama Aide Praises 'George W. Bush's Graceful Silence'
December 26th, 2014 9:09 AM
At Bloomberg View, former Obama aide Cass Sunstein – still connected by marriage to Obama through his wife, U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power – praised “George W. Bush’s Graceful Silence.” Democrats often appreciate the gentility of ex-presidents named Bush....even if they never quite criticize the Clintons and Carters who never stay silent during Republican…
Classic! New Network Gets Protested At D.C. Summit for Protesters
November 20th, 2014 7:42 AM
The new “Fusion” network, created by ABC and Univision, tried to brand itself as pro-protester by hosting an all-day protester summit in Washington on Wednesday.

September 25th, 2014 2:46 PM
In an interview with United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power on Thursday's NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer pointed out President Obama contradicting himself on fighting terrorism: "Many times during his presidency, the President has said that the tide of war is receding....But yesterday, he talked about this fight against ISIS and he said, 'The only language understood by killers like…
CBS Lobs Softballs to Obama U.N. Ambassador, Avoids Criticism
September 18th, 2014 11:53 AM
Starting off a gentle interview with United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power on Thursday's CBS This Morning, co-host Norah O'Donnell began to pitch what could have been a hardball question on the Obama administration's slow response to violence in Syria giving rise to the ISIS terrorist threat, but instead tossed out this: "When you first became ambassador, you pushed for air…

Samantha Power Puff: WashPost Calls Obama's UN Pick a 'Dazzling Diagno
April 6th, 2014 2:51 PM
The Sunday Washington Post Magazine has a new, larger design, which allows for a bigger picture of Obama favorite Samantha Power, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. The first sign that Post writer Manuel Roig-Franzia’s going to play it soft: he never mentions that Power called Hillary Clinton a “monster” in 2008.
Or the first sign might be the goopy copy about how…
NYTimes: Bush Bashing Book Reviewer Not Identified as Obama Campaign A
August 15th, 2007 6:19 AM
Back on July 29th, the New York Times published an article that was ostensibly supposed to be a book review even as the first half of the long piece was an anti-Bush political rant. The byline was credited to Samantha Power, who is, as the Times somewhat benignly defined her, a "professor of the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard." But, Power is far from a mere lefty Harvard professor…
