Brutalized by Trump’s Winning, Liberals Nip at Conservatives’ Ankles

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

So many ankles, so many bites. But fortunately we don’t have a President Jeb! who actually cares what the lying media and the weaselstablishment think. Trump supports his performers and ruthlessly culls the non-hackers. Have you noticed that whenever he fires people for being useless the media and establishment wet themselves? Give them nothing, Mr. President. Not a head, not a scalp, not even an ankle to sink their tiny teeth into.

Schneiderman Scandal Should Be a Spiritual Crisis for Democrats

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Liberalism has a serious moral and spiritual crisis to confront because this man was protected for all the wrong reasons. The people who cosseted him for so long -- women and men, they all know who they are and some are undoubtedly in very high places -- did so because they thought he was on the "right side" of things. Not only is that a weasel-like version of the ends-justify-the-means (he opposed Trump, didn't he? That means he can do anything he wants), it's a form of blindness about what the "right side" really is. It is the "right side" as habit. It is the "right side" as in "never examine any premise ever."

Thou Shalt Not Question Mueller

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

On Jan. 3, when Manafort's lawyers challenged Mueller's investigation as being too broad, ABC gave it 51 seconds; NBC gave it 30 seconds; and CBS gave it 13 seconds. Add that up and so far this year, by our count, the networks have devoted roughly four minutes to serious allegations of Mueller's overreach with a team of investigators that clearly believes it has the power to delve into anyone's private life if it will harm the president.

Washington Offers Up Bread and Circuses, but the U.S. Is Remarkably Resilient

John Fund, National Review

We cannot follow our present course indefinitely before the lack of seriousness catches up with us. Adam Smith, the 18th-century father of modern economics, once reassured a friend that there was a “great deal of ruin in a nation,” by which he meant that it takes an awful lot to bring down a powerful and prosperous state. So while we should be pleased our country appears to be handling its current stress tests, we shouldn’t ignore the earthquakes that could come if we don’t pursue permanent reforms.

Harassment at the Center for American Progress

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

There's been a lot of tough reporting on sexual harassment since Donald Trump became president. So why can't the media find this story with two hands? Remember this when the members of the Washington press corps pat themselves on the back over how they expose all the uncomfortable news about powerful sexual harassers. All curiosity somehow dies on H Street in Washington, D.C., at the front door of the so-called Center for American Progress.

The 'Uncle Tom' Card Is Dead

Michelle Malkin, Townhall

Ultimately, the problem with the whinnying Michelle Wolf's schtick isn't that it's mean and divisive. It's that it's boring, unfunny and ineffectual. When everyone qualifies as an "Uncle Tom" in the eyes of the left's raging resistance, there will be no one left to pretend to laugh at their anemic jokes.

I Cannot Handle All This Winning

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Democrats cannot afford to lose their lock on the minority vote – but minorities are now openly asking the question that terrifies liberals: “What have you done for us lately besides run your Chardonnay-guzzling mouths?” Don’t be down. Don’t be discouraged. We’re winning. And somewhere, in a dark room, Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit sits sucking down tumblers of Canadian Club and dreaming of the American Venezuela that might have been.

Who Was Worse—Michelle Wolf or Her Audience?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Michelle Wolf and, more unfortunately, many of the people in her audience do not and didn't want to bring everyone together with humor. Our media was out to get Donald Trump and virtually all his friends and family from the very second he came down that elevator. So he struck back at them.  Wouldn't you? They better hope he doesn't make peace with North Korea.  Forget the  WHCD monkfish. They're going to have many tons of crow to eat.

White House Correspondents’ Dinner Again Ignores Attacks on Conservative First Amendment Rights

Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

The elitist snobbery of the dinner’s comedy act was merely illustrative of a much, much larger problem on vivid display in the ballroom of the Washington Hilton. Juxtaposed with the images of the President in Michigan? One wonders if the billionaire President is paying everybody in the Washington press corps to act the way they do. Because without doubt, events like the WHCA dinner do nothing but help Donald Trump.

If You Want To Stop Liberal Bullying, Start By Telling Them To Buzz Off

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

It's about time that our default response change from “I'm sorry I gave offense” to “You're an idiot for being offended and get out of my face before I slug you.” We need more Kanyes and fewer Shanias, more people willing to stand up to the slobbering pack of Twitter social justice geebos who have achieved nothing in life except to humiliate a few weak-hearted pushovers. These are bad people, and you empower them when you treat them like anything other than the garbage people they are.

Who Do You Trust To Keep Their Campaign Promises?

When voters were asked "who do you trust to fulfill their campaign promises?" President Trump topped all comers with 31 percent saying they trusted him to keep his campaign promises, but the Capitol Hill GOP came in dead last at only 6 percent.

Beware Networks Skipping Their Own Polls

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

No one expects these networks to report all of their polling results. But consumers should beware that these "facts first" networks have a tendency to pass over the results they don't like and heavily emphasize the ones they do. Whether they are reporting on polls or policies or scandals or gaffes, everything the networks report sounds like dark clouds and stormy seas for Trump and the GOP. Disaster is always around the corner. The wishful thinking is palpable and incessant.

No Surprise Poll: Majority of Americans Associate DC Swamp With GOP Leadership

55% of voters and 66% of Republicans are concerned about the Swamp, but nearly half (46%) of Americans think the GOP leadership is supporting it. More worrying for the GOP's midterm prospects, 45% of voters who reside in states Trump won in the 2016 presidential election believe the GOP leadership supports the Swamp.

Revolution and Worse to Come

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The danger to the country this time around is that the Left has so destroyed the old protocols of the opposition party that it will be hard to resurrect them when progressives return to power. We are entering revolutionary times. The law is no longer equally applied. The media are the ministry of truth. The Democratic party is a revolutionary force. And it is all getting scary.

It’s Fun to Watch The Liberals’ and Never Trumpers’ Coup Dreams Die

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

This whole campaign to undo the 2016 election is a scam and a fraud and we all know it, but unlike the principled Decorumcons who refuse to see the truth of the putrid corruption within their beloved Beltway, Donald Trump (and those of us who support him) feel absolutely no obligation to go along with the charade that this isn’t a corrupt, slow-walking coup pushed by a disgruntled establishment. Our “system” is not endangered by us calling out the lies, or by the President using his power to prevent and/or correct manifest injustices. The danger is the corruption.

New Phelim McAleer Play: The $18-Billion Prize

Phelim McAleer tells stories that the establishment media want to ignore. McAleer’s new play, The $18-Billion Prize, exposes how environmentalists carried out the world’s biggest fraud, how the media and Hollywood helped promote the fraud, and how they almost got away with it.

Comey's Pocket Stuffers in the Press

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

The "news" media are stuffing Comey's pockets with book profits, just as they're drooling over the possibility of a similar boom in their ad revenues. "Telling all" about Trump is a proven get-rich-quick scheme. The networks act as conveyor belts for "news" that makes Democrats happy or lets Democrats vent about what (and who) they hate. In this age of Trump-bashing opportunism, they have demonstrated they have exactly as much nonpartisan integrity as James Comey.

Trump's shoot-first style, panned by the press, may not be so crazy

Howard Kurtz, Fox News

Trump is extremely frustrated with the slow pace of government. Having rid himself of some of his more cautious aides, he's more determined than ever to trust his instincts and shake things up. And he does this by announcing, or tweeting, "decisions" that land with explosive impact in the media and political world. That forces everyone else to react. He moves the debate onto his turf.

Liberals Announce Plan to Crush Normal Americans in a New “Civil War” (Spoiler: It’s Not a Great Plan)

Kurt Schlicter, Townhall

Normal Americans are not going to simply give up their rights and their self-determination because a bunch of liberals want them to. Sure, the weaponization of culture with corporations and tech companies trying to silence and marginalize decent citizens is troubling, but in short order there will be a backlash as Normals react to these new, overtly fascist tactics.

A Brutal Revisitation of Chappaquiddick

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

For the rest of Sen. Kennedy's life, the media treated Chappaquiddick as an extremely distasteful subject only conspiracy-obsessed right-wingers thought was important. Whenever the scandal surfaced, journalists turned it into a story of "redemption." As long as a politician can pass "landmark" liberal bills, his personal scandals are washed away by liberal journalists. And they call themselves idealists.
