Does the Left Really Not Know What a Mob is?

Heather Wilhelm at National Review explains:

How to Tell If You Are Part of a Mob

This shouldn’t be that hard to explain.

Not a Mob, according to CNN

During the final, torturous week in which our nation collectively lost its marbles over the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, I happened to be out of the country. This was a fantastic decision on my part — one could not feel the surge of unhinged panic in France, where people just kind of sauntered around as usual, smoking cigarettes, and looking vaguely aloof — but I also apparently missed some very exciting news.

One of the most thrilling things I missed, or so I am told, involved an exhaustive national debate over the meaning of mysterious terms in Brett Kavanaugh’s high-school yearbook. “Devil’s Triangle.” “Boof.” It was wild! It was like decoding the prophecies of Nostradamus, or at least the Rosetta Stone! read more

CNN’s Berman Can’t Contain his Naked Partisanship

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

No Audio Version

Today, there is no longer even a hint of impartiality in the main stream media. And this will tick-off some conservatives, but that includes almost everyone at Fox News.

Now it’s pick-a-side. You’re expected to be all in for Trump, or all out.

However, CNN has taken naked partisanship to new heights. Check that. They’ve descended to new lows. As I never watch MSNBC, I must therefore conclude that CNN is the worst among the leftist networks. For those with a stronger constitution than I, who might tune in to MSNBC, feel free to correct me on the MSNBC/CNN race to the bottom.

I’ve thought for some time, the worst and most partisanly condescending of them at CNN was former morning show co-anchor, turned prime time hack, Chris Cuomo.

Yet after witnessing the exchange had between Cuomo’s morning replacement, John Berman, and Rick Santorum, I think Cuomo has been dethroned. The performance turned in by Berman during that 8 minute (or so) segment, shows that fairness and impartiality is not only dead, but has been shot, stabbed, burned, drawn and quarter and thrown in a shallow grave. read more

MS-13 is Back in the News and It’s All Trump’s Fault

The savage immigrant gang, MS-13, is back in the news. I guess they are always in the news, as these animals (h/t: president Trump) never take a break. Let’s just say they’re back in the national news. CNN’s Sunday website homepage featured no less than five stories about the gang.

The gang made the national headlines once again, due to a high profile murder that occurred less than two weeks ago.

We may remember a 16 old girl and her friend were viciously attacked and murdered on Long Island on September 13, 2016. You may also recall that the 16 old victim’s mother Evelyn Rodriguez, was recognized by President Trump during his State of the Union address.

On Friday, September 14, Ms. Rodriguez was struck and killed by an SUV. The driver of the vehicle had been arguing with Evelyn, when he just sped forward, struck and killed her. Congressman Peter King (R-NY) was on his way to meet Evelyn at her daughter’s grave site when he got word of the murder.

And that should be the end of it – a tragic occurrence. Police have the driver in custody and have yet to disclose his ties to MS-13, if any. read more

I Must Disagree with Mollie’s Dad

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Mollie Tibbetts’s dad, Rob Tibbetts, wrote an Op-Ed for the Des Moines Register this past Saturday. It was heart-felt and obviously written by a Dad who adored his daughter and wishes to shield his family from further pain.

That being said, this may be the most ill-advised article I’ve ever written and will probably land me in some hot water, but I none-the-less feel compelled to write it. So here we go.

Rob Tibbetts writes that, “At the outset, politicians and pundits used Mollie’s death to promote various political agendas. We appealed to them and they graciously stopped. For that, we are grateful. Sadly, others have ignored our request. They have instead chosen to callously distort and corrupt Mollie’s tragic death to advance a cause she vehemently opposed.”

I get that, which is why it’s difficult for me to publically disagree and take issue.

First, there are dirtbags on the right who really are died-in-the-wool white supremacists and racists, and wish everyone who isn’t white to get gone. That’s too bad, but this being a free country, they have every right to their own opinions, no matter how vile. read more

A Leftist Questions a Leftist? What is the World Coming To?

Have we just woke up in bizarro world? I mean – what the heck just happened? A liberal host on CNN actually questions a leftist democrat Senator whether her outrage is genuine? Is this not a fireable offense?

CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin could not get a straight answer out of Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-Wisc.) Wednesday when she accosted her about the hypocrisy of demanding President Donald Trump change the family separation policy that existed before he took office.

“Did you speak up against them then?” read more

CNN’s Chris Cillizza is not a Smart Man

from HotAir:

CNN’s Chris Cillizza On Deputy Scot Peterson: He Proved The NRA Wrong

CNN’s Chris Cillizza had a really awful hot take on the news that Sheriff’s Deputy Scot Peterson stood outside doing nothing while Nikolas Cruz was inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school shooting people. Cillizza’s take is that this proves, once and for all, that a ‘good guy with a gun’ doesn’t always stop a bad guy with a gun.

Cillizza:

“To stop a bad guy with a gun, it takes a good guy with a gun,” LaPierre said to applause from the CPAC crowd on Thursday morning. read more

Should We Defend Roy Moore or Not

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

I’m no great supporter of Judge Roy Moore. Heck – I was a Mo Brooks guy. He’s looking pretty good right about now – isn’t he?

It seems few are coming to Moore’s defense. Everyone is so afraid to even go near the guy for fear that if the allegations of sexual misconduct are true, anyone who once defended him would also go down in flames.

Well, I’m going to defend him and assume he’s innocent until I discover otherwise. That’s called – you got it – the American way. Some of us still believe in the arcane principle of innocent until proven guilty. You don’t have to support or even like the guy to uphold this ideal.

I will because A: These are so far just uncorroborated and baseless accusations B: At least one accuser worked for both Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden and is campaigning for Moore’s democrat opponent. C: Indications are that Corfman, the main accuser, has claimed several pastors at various churches made sexual advances at her. D: “Former Secret Service agent Doug Lewis has made an [as yet] unsubstantiated claim that a WaPo reporter named “Beth” offered a family friend $1000 to accuse Roy Moore, and that a tape of the offer is in the hands of the DA.” Lewis claims the WaPo reporter lives right outside D.C. and donated to Hillary and the DNC in 2016. read more

CNN’s Guide to Free Speech

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

On the home page of CNN.com is an article, entitled, “The First Amendment doesn’t guarantee you the rights you think it does.”

I thought – okay – its CNN posting something on the Constitution. This has got to be good. And by good, I mean really bad. Virtually the only time the left positively comments on the Constitution, they refer only to the First Amendment, for which they can bend and twist to suit their needs. It’s as if the rest of the Constitution and Bill of Rights does not exist.

The article begins by recounting the entire First Amendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances

It’s short, to the point and easy to understand. Apparently it is not, for the author feels obliged to drag out First Amendment expert, Lata Nott, of the Newseum Institute’s First Amendment Center, to explain.

At first blush I thought this a ridiculous notion, but then remembered just who, for the most part, is partaking of the wisdom of CNN – other leftists, who wouldn’t know a Constitution if you handed them one. read more

Was a CNN Rescue Staged?

from American Thinker:

In Houston, is CNN that desperate?

After getting egg all over its face from an angry Houston-area flood victim who didn’t like a microphone stuck in her face, CNN

seems to be resorting to increasingly desperate tactics, venturing possibly into fake news.

Wiith suspicious timing, a CNN camera crew team, led by Drew Griffin, rescued a Beaumont-area flood victim from a floating truck, positioned right behind the camera. The reporter and his team dropped their camera stand-up work and apparently ran to rescue the man from the submerged vehicle, making themselves heroes, all the more so because the victim this time explicitly stated that they saved his lives. Business Insider reports: read more

WND Exclusive – Give us your tired … tired of feudalism, socialism

By now virtually everyone with any political interest – aka us – have seen the heated exchange between Senior White House Adviser Stephen Miller and CNN’s Jim Acosta regarding immigration and the Statue of Liberty.

As has been the case recently, CNN “reporters” are sent to the White House briefings to be antagonists – not to report. Acosta clearly had no interest in acquiring any information disseminated by Miller. He was there to preach and filibuster, while always on alert for a “gotcha” moment. This is the present-day job of the liberal Washington press corps. read more
