The Media’s Latest Anti-Trump Hero

from the American Spectator:

Andrew McCabe: Faux Hero of Our Times

What a tangled web he weaves, when first he practices to deceive — and all this with the mainstream media’s eager connivance.

The progressive mainstream media have declared former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to be a Hero of the Republic for having launched a counterintelligence investigation of President Trump after he fired FBI Director James Comey in May 2017. In interviews on CBS and NBC, McCabe has claimed that FBI officials under his supervision opened the probe because they believed that it was “possible” that Trump had acted on behalf of the Kremlin when he fired Comey.

On NBC’s Today Show, McCabe told Savannah Guthrie that the FBI “had information that led us to believe that there might be a threat to national security — in this case that the president himself might, in fact, be a threat to the United States’ national security.” read more

Transgenderism Intolerant of Feminism

from the American Spectator:

Julia Beck’s voice quavered with emotion and she seemed on the brink of tears as she neared the end of her presentation Monday. “We are losing an entire generation of sisters to this madness,” she said. “That’s why it’s personal. It’s infuriating. It’s devastating. And I have had enough.”

A radical lesbian feminist, Ms. Beck spoke these words at a place she once never imagined she’d be — a seventh-floor auditorium at the conservative Heritage Foundation — as part of a panel discussing “this madness” of transgender ideology.

Jack up the Minimum Wage in NYC

This is the progressive left. Did we ever think they would be satisfied with $15 per hour?

from the American Spectator:

Fifteen-dollar-an-hour minimum wage is so yesterday.

In an op-ed in the New York Times, Ginia Bellafante points to a study showing that a $33-per-hour minimum wage might be needed in New York City, saying that’s the amount necessary — about $69,000 extrapolated out over a year’s income — for a single parent with two school-aged children to live a decent quality of life in the Big Apple.

“In many, many cases, a $15 hourly wage will not bring a family, or even a single person, to an adequate living standard,” she wrote. “That hardly means the fight was worthless; it just means the war is ongoing.” read more

Witless Jim Acosta Makes Trump’s Border Barrier Argument for Him

Jim Acosta makes Trump point a border walls/fences, etc! Question is – does he know how foolish he looks, or is it a case of bad press is better than none at all.

2019 – The Year of Never-Ending War

Now the Left Loves Military Leaders?

Boys Scouts Fate was Entirely Predictable

from The American Spectator:

The other day President Trump called Rex Tillerson “dumb as a rock.” That was payback for an interview in which his former Secretary of State called Trump undisciplined and a poor study. Trump had selected Tillerson for the job based in part on the recommendation of Robert Gates, Obama’s Secretary of Defense, according to press reports. Gates and Tillerson knew each other largely from the Boy Scouts, where they both held leadership positions during its transition from a traditional organization to a politically correct one.

As president of the Boy Scouts, Gates had endorsed the adoption of the LGBT agenda, urging the organization to succumb to the demands of its critics. He cast adherence to Christian principles, not their betrayal, as the real threat to the organization’s future. read more

Cronyism is Alive And Well in D.C.

from the American Spectator:

Nationalism is Good or Bad Depending on Who is In Charge

from the American Spectator:

The true nationalists and patriots were progressives — and environmentalists.” So declared an August 2015 article at the website of Think Progress, founded by the Center for American Progress, citadel of the progressive-liberal left.

Back then, nationalism was good to progressives. Now, with Donald Trump having bothered to weigh in, nationalism is bad to progressives. In fact, it’s downright detestable. It’s Hitlerian. It’s Trumpian-Hitlerian. By golly, it’s yet another Trump “dog whistle,” a not-so-veiled clarion call to fellow xenophobes in his neo-Gestapo movement to start constructing concentration camps for the caravan along the southern border.

The latest example of the left losing it are the histrionics and hysterics denouncing Trump’s newest malevolent ism. The list is ongoing: nationalism, patriotism, populism, sexism, chauvinism, lookism, ageism, white-maleism, vegetarianism. The Donald steadily stirs up a toxic witch’s brew — a dab of fascism, a sprinkle of Nazism, a smattering of racism. Whatever the left can sniff out for its agitprop du jour. read more

Democrats Will Do Anything to Win

from the American Spectator:

Politicians pander. Political parties pander. I’d never assert that the GOP is pure and holy. And yet, what we’re seeing from the Democratic Party in 2018, on the eve of next week’s midterms, is shameless political pandering, period. Yes, liberals, I know that flies in the face of your narrative, and headlines like the one blared across CNN.com yesterday, “Trump shocks with racist new ads days before midterms,” but the reality is the Democratic Party has been engaged in a politically grotesque Jekyll-and-Hyde scheme this entire campaign season.

What we’re seeing from the Democrats in their election strategy for 2018 is transparently dishonest. read more
