The Clapper News Network

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Clapper probably penned the letter while on the phone with CNN and now enjoys his reward: a cushy seat from which to pronounce on the Trump administration’s lack of “integrity.” The other day he was on CNN vouching for the integrity of Andrew McCabe, another nabbed leaker. Maybe McCabe can become a CNN contributor too now that his FBI pension is in peril. They could co-host a show called Reliable Leakers.

In the Wolff Trap

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Even as the sonorous phonies on CNN and MSNBC pretend to want “depth” from the Trump administration, they recoil from figures like Miller who provide some. The last thing they want is for Trump to receive a robust and intelligent defense. And so they kick Miller off the set and bring Wolff on to it, and then sit at his feet as he tells them that “100 percent of the people” around Trump won’t defend him.

Time to Get CNN Out of the Airports, etc.

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Allowing one network the privilege of dominating our public spaces is dangerous to our republic in the extreme, even if, as seems to be the case, the public has growing distrust of that network. It's still there and, as some man or woman did say, the lie is going around the world with nothing to contradict it. By the time the truth puts its boots on, the liars will already be on to the next lie. We're all being propagandized, consciously and unconsciously, all the time.

Ted Cruz Makes Epic Put Down Of Bernie Sanders And The Democrat Tax Collectors

Our advice to Mitch McConnell and the GOP leadership – not that they are likely to accept it – is that they should concentrate on rounding up votes for the Trump tax plan and leave the talking to Ted Cruz.

One Down 40 – 50 To Go

Rep. Charles Dent a leader of the RINO Tuesday Group is retiring. Our take on the Tuesday Group is 1 down, 40 – 50 to go, they are each guilty until proven innocent by their votes, so primary them all.

CNN’s Big Secret -- journalists really don't like Trump

James Freeman, Wall Street Journal

CNN host Brian Stelter said, "President Trump’s actions and inactions in the wake of Charlottesville are provoking some uncomfortable conversations, mostly off the air if we’re being honest." There is certainly a question of just how uncomfortable CNN has been about raising issues related to President Trump’s health and character. “My impression is that since President Trump’s inauguration, there’s been a lot of tiptoeing going on,” added Brian Stelter.

President Trump’s Arizona Speech Drives Left Nuts

Trump’s Phoenix speech was good mostly because Trump showed he could still be Trump, and that he wasn’t going to be cowed into abandoning his base – and because along the way he delivered an epic put down to the national media’s Charlottesville narrative.

CNN 'shuts up' conservative

Mark J. Fitzgibbons, American Thinker

This is a sad yet comical metaphor for the left’s view about civility. Polite yet pugnacious former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli was featured on CNN’s Chris Cuomo show Monday to discuss Charlottesville. With him as counterpoint was former Bernie Sanders press secretary Symone Sanders, who in 2016 said, "[W]e don't need white people leading the Democratic party right now." Both guests told the other to "shut up," yet only Cuccinelli was asked to apologize.

CNN Fires Me

Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

To criticize, condemn, or mock these Nazi-style tactics by calling out the group in question and its leadership by name is — which as CNN has just demonstrated in my case — hazardous. Media Matters went to work on CNN using their old and now very well used playbook. As they turned their tactics on Rush Limbaugh and now Hannity, they have just done the same to me. And CNN folded.

Jim Acosta Can't Handle the Facts

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

When (Trump aide Stephen) Miller was done, (CNN reporter Jim) Acosta complained, "You called me ignorant on national television." The Washington Post "fact-checker" squad must have agonized as it underlined Acosta as the ignorant half of this exchange. If it did, kudos to the Washington Post for breaking the mold.

CNN's White-Whale Russia Obsession

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Obviously, the left thinks Russia is its silver bullet for Trump's impeachment, and CNN is its channel for obsessive round-the-clock prosecution. That's why it's laughable that The New York Times recently reported CNN is lagging in the ratings behind "the more ideologically driven coverage of Fox News and MSNBC."

Was The Russian Lawyer's Meeting With Donald Trump Jr Part Of A Deep State Plot?

Connect the dots and it looks like the same group of dictator-friendly Democrats who got the the spurious dossier on then-candidate Donald Trump into the news have chosen this moment to leak information on Donald Jr. to keep the phony Russian collusion story alive.

Dear Russian Agents, Send Help

Please, send us what you have so we can better expose the deceit and hypocrisy of those who would fundamentally change America by undermining the rule of law and liberty. And maybe – just maybe – the GOP in Washington will see that what’s happening from within to undermine our constitutional republic and way of life is nearly as horrible as what you Russians are trying.

Trump Grinds the G20, the Bureaucratic Underground, and CNN into Hamburger

Clarice Feldman, American Thinker

Trump's speech prefaced the G20 meeting in Hamburg, where leftists rioted, burned, and looted while the G20 leaders ponced about and wined and dined in style, apparently oblivious to the havoc which their open border policies and multiculturalist mindset had birthed. As Trump worked successfully on trade and defense issues in Europe, his administration was quietly plugging security leaks and maladministration in our own bureaucratic underground.

Trump’s Tweets Awaken The Living Dead

When Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Lindsey Graham are the voices and faces of the Republican Party it reminds us of scenes from our favorite zombie movies.

We Should Cheer CNN’s Ritual Suicide

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

As much as it is a joy to see CNN shred its pretenses and act openly as we always knew it wanted to, this sort of thing is not good. There is a cultural war underway already, and this only makes it more likely to get worse. When the media takes a side, it makes the other side its enemy. That’s a conscious choice. And CNN seems happy to help feed the fire by embracing its liberal fascist id.

Trump Provokes CNN’s Self-Immolation, America Relieved

Roger Kimball, American Greatness

Like every politician, Donald Trump will require a modicum of good luck to succeed. Many things, including many things utterly beyond his control, could derail his presidency. But when it comes to handling his many domestic enemies and opponents, it looks to me like Trump is playing three-dimensional chess while they struggle to master checkers.
