The price of fighting with Trump

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Trump is Trump. He does what he does, which is what he did during the campaign and before. And now, in the White House, he has enlisted his media adversaries, wittingly or not, in a campaign against "fake news" that resonates with his core supporters.

Trump and Morning Joke

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Trump once called Mika a “neurotic dope,” and now, according to a fresh tweet, he has revealed that she and Scarborough desperately courted him down in Florida for an interview while Mika was recovering from a “face-lift.” The American people know perfectly well that Trump isn’t a saint. They don’t need the media to hold endless powwows on this subject. What’s more, they know that even with his flaws he is a hell of a lot more serious than the smug “sophisticates” always sniping at him.

Mad genius of Trump drives schoolmarms of political press crazy

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

The Trump presidency is a little like having a dog. Every day that passes, you love the dog more and more until it seems impossible to love her any more. But — sadly — every day also brings that nagging dread that one day she will be gone, seven times sooner than she should. What will we do when it is all over? There will never be another dog like her (sad face).

Teen Magazines Launch the Pronoun Wars

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Some of the most aggressive cultural propaganda today is coming from magazines for teenagers. The biggest crusade is about sex (yes, as soon as possible) and gender, where biology is completely negotiable, and incorrect or bizarre pronouns are nonnegotiable.

Fighting Fire With Fire

The problem with all of this establishment Republican virtue-signaling and the establishment media calls for civility is that they only go one way. Neither before nor after President Trump hit Brzezinski and Scarborough like a ton of bricks did anyone in the establishment call for civility to the President.

'Scandal-Free' Obama to Scandal-Plagued Trump

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

The same reporters who effortlessly spread the fake news that Obama was "scandal-free" are dedicated to cementing the proposition that Trump is hopelessly scandal-plagued. The same journalists who shamelessly whacked away at Kenneth Starr as a modern knock-off of the inquisitor Torquemada are now presenting Robert Mueller as their latest echo of Eliot Ness. The only thing consistent about the press is their partisanship.

The media will do anything to bash Trump — and now they’re hurting

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

It is remarkable that, if it weren’t for the unproven allegations of Trump collusion, the media would have no interest in the Russia story at all. This despite the fact that leading officials, including both Democrats and Republicans, have called the interference an “act of war.” But it’s a strange war — one that is important only to the extent Trump can be linked to it. Otherwise, who cares?

Trashing Trump and the 'I'm a Genius' Press

Charlie Martin, PJ Media

When someone else says something, especially if you intend to report on it, carefully listen to what the other person is saying. Assume that other person is smarter than you, and try to make sense of what they're saying. Reporters should be looking for information -- that is, they should be looking for things that surprise them. If instead they just hear what fits their preconceptions, well, they're not reporting.

Rhetorical Abuses Are Diminishing the Nation’s Ability to Function

Jeffrey M. McCall, CNS News

It is ultimately up to the citizenry to denounce messages and messengers who serve the self-interests and egos of the bombastic. Citizens need to look for and listen to communicators who prioritize concern for the greater societal welfare. The time is now for such messengers to emerge.

Trumping the Narrative

Roger Kimball, American Greatness

I thought that James Comey’s performance on June 8 was mostly pathetic: a whiney, grandstanding effort at self-exoneration. For most people listening, I suspect, the effort failed. Comey stood exposed as a coward for not standing up to Loretta Lynch and a selfish careerist by leaning on a friend to leak possibly classified information to the press in order to burnish his own image.

Corruption and Collusion: Obama, Comey, and the Press

Andrew Klavan, PJ Media

My point is simply this: when you are listening to Comey, and when you are listening to the news media sanctifying Comey or indeed demonizing Trump, just remember who it is you are listening to: unindicted co-conspirators in an administration that was rotten to the core.

Media Buries Trump’s Good Economic News

Obsessed as the establishment media is with fake news, you’d never know that – thanks in large measure to President Trump’s deregulation and economic policies – we are rapidly closing-in on the 4 percent economic growth target the President set during the campaign.

Tea Party Activists: Media Attacks on President Trump ‘An All Out Assault on Our Republic’

Michael Patrick Leahy, Breitbart

Tea Party activists across the country tell Breitbart News the mainstream media, with help from “Deep State” bureaucrats, is doing the work of the Democratic Party in an effort to undermine the political agenda of Donald Trump, the duly elected President of the United States.

The High-Tech Lynching of an Uppity President

Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

What we are seeing in this endless series of stories about Trump — all of them from gutless anonymous sources and all of them disputed — is the desperate denizens of the swamp fighting for their survival against the duly elected president of a very angry American people who have had enough of special interest politics and the cronyism and nest feathering that comes with it.

The FBI Must Investigate The Sophisticated Intelligence Operation To Destroy President Trump

When one begins to analyze how these stories begin and propagate it is clear that, as The Washington Post put it, “current and former U.S. officials” in the intelligence agencies are engaged in what amounts to a seditious conspiracy to cripple and eventually bring down President Trump.

Obama Holdovers Successfully Sabotaging Trump's War Against ISIS

Until President Trump rids himself of those officials and advisers who do not share his foreign policy goals the internal coup against him will continue to the detriment of our war with the Islamic State and the broader success of his administration.

The Party of Nyet

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

What we’re witnessing is nothing more than a smug and amoral ruling class ganging up on a Republican president. Even as they viciously encircle him, they have the gall to cast him as the “bully.” They sow divisions, then call him “divisive.” They declare him a threat to world peace, then poison relations between the U.S. and other countries.

The Sabotaging of the President

Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

The President of the United States — is the President of the United States. And for entirely political reasons, this President is being deliberately sabotaged. It has to stop. For the sake of the country and the presidency, not to mention the intelligence agencies whose credibility is at stake — the sabotaging of the President has to stop.

The Media Finally Admit Obamacare Is Collapsing

David Catron, The American Spectator

The price hikes that are about to descend on Obamacare’s victims are nothing new and they have nothing to do with Trump. They are the result of irreparable flaws in Obamacare, and the reporters and editors of the legacy media know it. This is why they are frantically trying to shift the blame for this mess from the Democratic authors of the law to the most convenient Republican target.

Message to Republicans: Don’t Fall for Media Tricks on Comey

Rush Limbaugh, The Rush Limbaugh Show

I have a message for the Republicans: The last thing you should do is find anything in common with the Democrats on this. The last thing you should do is feel sorry, simpatico. Do not fall for the temptation to join the Democrats in their rants against Trump on this. Here’s the deal, folks. There is no collusion. The Russians did not hack, did not tamper, did not impact the outcome of our election. It’s been established for over nine months, if not longer.
