NBC Lowers the Bar for Omarosa

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

As with the "Access Hollywood" tape, NBC seems to be trying to do penance for the "sin" of building Trump's national profile over the years with "The Apprentice" and then "Celebrity Apprentice." These "news" outlets complain that when President Trump attacks them for pushing "fake news," he is undermining "democratic norms." That's not correct. He is decrying the media's Democratic norms.

They Are Not Never Trump – They Are Never You

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

How did our supposed betters get the idea they were better anyway? Have they done anything but go to college and write stuff they didn’t really believe? We are in the midst of a cultural upheaval where our shoddy elite is desperately trying to cling to power and prestige it did not earn, has not wielded competently, and does not deserve. The recent shameful collaboration with the SJW left by those who once fancied themselves our leaders in conservatism just proves, again, how right we were to discard these losers.

There’s Nothing “Right” Or Conservative About Neo-Nazis

Just as they did in Nazi Germany, Neo-Nazis are fighting for the allegiance of working-class voters by blaming the loss of their upward mobility and quality of life on racial grievance, this only serves the interests of Leftwing politicians bent on dividing America along racial and ethnic lines.

Reporters Suddenly Hate the Soviets?

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Media figures denounce Trump for calling the media the "enemy of the people." The term certainly has a Soviet echo. That said, conservatives certainly could consider them the enemy. We prefer calling the "objective" media the "opposition party." Considering their shoddy record of offering "resistance" to totalitarian communism, these journalists should really be much quieter and humbler about who's been friendlier to dictators.

Creative writing about Mr. Trump's troubles

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

After two years of grunting, huffing, puffing and blowing through the top of his head, like a great white whale, Robert Mueller only has evidence that the president’s onetime campaign manager is guilty of being a lawyer. This has enabled many distinguished newspaper pundits, columnists, correspondents and other artists to keep dispatching learned assurances that the proof is finally at hand, almost. Maybe. We’ve come to so many turning points in the Mueller inquiry that the customers are spinning like yokels lured into playing Three Card Monte at the county fair.

Get It Through Your Head That Progressives Hate You

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

We need to accept the harsh reality that a substantial number of our fellow citizens hate our guts. All the simpering blabber about civility, all the clichés about unity, are all just comforting lies. A bunch of them hate us. They hate us. Hate. And we need to stop pretending the truth right in front of us is not right in front of us. What do we do? We fight. This is not going to be a single skirmish. This is a campaign, a long and difficult one with the objective of destroying the ideological cancer metastasizing through America’s body politic.

As The Press Turns: Democracy dies in dimwittedness

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

No longer pretending to be fair or unbiased, the (com) Post has lustily joined the zany campaign to destroy the president and portray his administration as some kind of criminal enterprise. The (com) Post should change its name to “The Gaslight Gazette.” Instead, the paper came up with a new slogan for their rabidly anti-Trump coverage. “Democracy Dies in Darkness.” It is not clear where the “darkness” comes since the Trump administration is nothing short of a constant supernova of news. Perhaps, “darkness” is a funny reference to their own deluded stupidity. “Democracy Dies in Dimwittedness” would be a better slogan.

Double Standards Are The Only Standards Liberals Have

Derek Hunter, Townhall

For decades the political left has held conservatives to the highest of standards while exempting themselves, but rarely has it been laid so clear. The party of tolerance hates you if you are conservative, they hate you if you are indifferent, they hate you if you aren’t sufficiently liberal. Quite simply, they just hate you. They hate you because you oppose them and they hate you because you aren’t them. For that, they must be held in contempt, or at least to account.

Are Liberals and Progressives Sabotaging the Economy?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The cries of economic disaster will only grow more intense as we approach the mid-terms. Every little statistical waver will blown way out of a proportion. Schumer and Pelosi will say that bread lines are imminent. Bernie Sanders and his new leftwing friend Ocasio-Cortez will proclaim conditions for the working class are worse than the 1930s when they have never been better. The good news is -- if they fail at this, they will end up with nothing and be flailing for a long time.

It Is the Sacred Duty of All Conservatives to Own the Libs

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

We’ve got to win this fight ourselves, and if you want to carry our banner down the hill in front of our bayonets, you need to be ready to rumble. Donald Trump may have some faults, but he fights for us – and his track record of conservative success dwarfs that of the Team Gimp gang that is still telling us not to be so feisty. Well, we’re feisty all right. We’re cocked and locked and ready to rock. That’s why we’re going to do our duty and keep owning the libs – on Twitter, in the bookstores, and at the ballot box in November.

The derangement virus stalks the land

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) rarely kills, but it wounds, and it might be fatal to the Democratic crusade to take back the House. Once upon a time, and not so long ago, a sob and a whine for mercy in any press room would have been hissed, booed and shouted down by the embarrassed gentlemen of the press, including a few ladies as tough as muleskinners. Jim Acosta’s performance would have embarrassed Helen Thomas. They weren’t all giants in that ancient day, but they were grown-ups.

The Emmy Awards Tilt to the Left

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

The Fox News channel, which leads in cable-news viewership year after year after year, got no News and Documentary Emmy Award nominations for 2017. Raise your hand if you're surprised.There are plenty of reasons to be disgusted by what's being nominated for excellence in 2017. It has nothing to do with talent. It's about the best promotion of the leftist agenda. It's OK to denounce the mainstream media as "fake news" if you're a radical lefty, however. You can even get nominated for an Emmy.

When Roosevelt flew to Tehran

Daniel Oliver, Washington Times

Trashing Donald Trump is the favorite indoor and outdoor sport of the liberal media, the deep state, the so-called intelligentsia and all the people who still can’t believe Hillary Clinton lost — including the Never Trumpers. Now they’re all busy writing stories about what a disaster Mr. Trump’s meeting with Vladimir Putin was. But why is the left so unkind to Mr. Trump when they tend to be so nice about President Franklin Roosevelt’s meeting with Joseph Stalin toward the end of World War II?

Making sport calling out 'them lyin' newspapers

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

The press can’t figure out what to do, and the mightiest (and loudest) organs only repeat themselves, scolding with the same rants that didn’t work the first time, or the second or third time. Focus groups tell researchers they don’t particularly like the way the president does it, but they like what he’s doing — restoring the Supreme Court to its constitutional moorings, staying out of the way of an economy that keeps on booming (“it’s the economy, stupid”), his telling free-loaders in Europe where to get off. It’s not pretty, but neither is the work of a tank.
