The Double Standards of Postmodern Justice

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

In these polarized times, Americans are not so much angry that newspapers and magazines fire reporters, or that Robert Mueller indicts those under suspicion. What bothers them is that our guardians of morality do not offer any principles to explain why some people’s lives are harmed or destroyed, and others’ lives are not. When there is no blind code of justice, people suspect that our institutions define wrong behavior and bad words as those in service to the wrong political agenda.

Media Wail for Brennan and Clapper

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

The networks have always politicized intelligence, back to the Vietnam War days. The FBI and the CIA were under fervent leftist attack in the 1970s. They seemed to be filled with villains every time the Republicans were in office — with former President Nixon and Watergate, former President Reagan and the Iran-contra affair, and former President George W. Bush and the Iraq War. But when they're scheming alongside Obama to help Hillary Clinton win, well, that's somehow patriotic activity.

Conservatives Use Their Secret Weapon to Create a Revolution (16 of 45)

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
When I first went to work for the new conservative movement, it didn’t take me long to discover that I really didn’t like asking people face to face for money.  I found that I had a knack for writing letters, though, so that’s what I began to concentrate on.  (Excerpt 16 of 45 from America’s Right Turn.)

Conservatives Test a New Secret Weapon (15 of 45)

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
The establishment elites who ran the Republican and Democratic parties thought they had killed the conservative beast with Barry Goldwater’s crushing defeat in 1964. They didn’t count on our perseverance and our ingenuity—or our secret weapon.  Excerpt 15 of 45 from America’s Right Turn.

Trump Has A Point About The Media

While the political establishment continues to attack President Trump for his “enemy of the people” comment about the media, Americans out in flyover country tend to wonder what else you would call an institution that employs people who regularly wish for them to fail and for their lives to be harder.

Peter Strzok’s arrogance is the product of a corrupt FBI

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Strzok appears to be a chip off the Comey/McCabe block. Like them, he insists he is committed to the FBI’s high standards, but his reprehensible conduct makes a mockery of his claims. His stated contempt for Trump and his promise to stop him from becoming president render Strzok unfit to be a dogcatcher. But, aping his mentors, he nonetheless demands his denials of wrongdoing be accepted as if his integrity is self-evident. All three believe they are entitled to trust and respect, without having to earn or return either.

The Media vs. Brett Kavanaugh

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

The one guarantee with Trump appointing Judge Brett Kavanaugh is that the Democrats, fueled by their mindless street mobs, will try to destroy him. It's how Democrats behave. It is not how the "news" media should behave. Is there anyone who disputes that? But it is how they will comport themselves, because they are one with their Democratic brothers and sisters. They are about to show the world what first-class hypocrites they really are.

Why the NYT Is Obsessed with Alan Dershowitz

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

What is being exposed here for the umpteenth time is that Great American Newspapers like the NYT are not in any way impartial but are but tony propaganda sheets for the current version of political correctness, whatever that may be. Unfortunately, that is no longer Dershowitz, who represents liberalism from another era when it was still somewhat, well, liberal and wholeheartedly supported such seemingly shopworn chestnuts as the First Amendment. Now it is the slave of progressivism, hence Alan must be ostracized. So the NYT went postal and behaved like raving idiots.

Thanks to Shamelessly Dishonest Liberals, Conservatives Have No Chance in 1964 (13 of 45)

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
The assassination of President Kennedy presented a new and unparalleled opportunity to smear conservatives, and the liberal media and LBJ took full advantage of it.  That worked in 1964, but conservatives would not be defeated that easily, as we see in this excerpt (No. 13 of 45) from America’s Right Turn.

CNN Host Proclaims 'National Emergency'

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Most Americans would suggest that the Dow Jones Industrial Average being up 5,000 points since President Trump's inauguration and the unemployment rate being 3.8 percent is not a national emergency. But then again, most Americans aren't journalists. Our media have shunned any notion of objectivity under Trump. Activists like Brian Stelter keep urging top editors to oppose, rebel and resist, and they wonder why their own approval ratings continue to sink lower, and lower, and lower.

This is What Happens When the Other Side Controls the Mass Media (12 of 45)

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
By the numbers, 1964 was an unmitigated disaster for conservatives.  But it was worse than it had to be, since the liberals controlled all of the mass media, and used that pulpit to smear all conservatives as fascists and Nazis.  It worked—for the time being, in Excerpt 12 of 45 from America’s Right Turn.
