In Defense of ABC and the NFL

Ben Shapiro, National Review

Free speech can be threatened in practice by a culture of mob rule — attempts to destroy someone’s life thanks to their viewpoint rather than their behavior. But sometimes speech is inherently related to the job or product at issue. Corporations have every right to protect their bottom line under such circumstances, and the public has every right to shy away from such products and services.

Media Monopolies Declare War on Conservatives

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
We succeeded before despite the old liberal monopolists.  We can repeat that success against the new “progressive” monopolists.  My co-author David Franke and I expalin how in the upcoming serialization of our book America's Right Turn.

Real Conservatives Refuse To Kneel Before Their Liberal Overlords

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Here’s how we roll. When the enemy deploys its power against us, whether it’s some football jerk dissing us via Old Glory or some tech titan deciding to not allow us access to social media, we will fight back using whatever power we have. We’ll bankrupt the NFL before we just sit there watching them flip us off. And we’ll leverage our political power to regulate the Twittfacegrams into submission if they keep trying to exclude us from participation in our own culture. Laugh at them and their fussy complaints about how you fail to conform your life to their labels. Fight back.

Can We Hope To Keep Our Republic When One Of The Parties Supports Tyranny?

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

We cannot have a functioning republic where about half of the population actively supports the trappings of tyranny. We can’t. No nation, especially one full of citizens who zealously guard their freedom, can tolerate a double standard for political behavior. It won’t be double for long. The New Rules, should they become ingrained in our systems, will inevitably go both ways. They are going to hate the New Rules.

So They Were Spying On Trump's Campaign

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Doesn't pushing the idea that Trump colluded with the Russians require "a conspiratorial mind"? Is it fair to speculate endlessly on CNN and MSNBC about how special counsel Robert Mueller might prove collusion, when he hasn't done so after a year of trying? The media don't have to prove their Trump conspiracy theory to damage Trump's political standing. It can keep that black cloud of speculation hanging over his head on every front page and every newscast.

Defending spies in the Trump campaign is the height of liberal hypocrisy

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

The time is up for professional gatekeepers like Comey and Rosenstein to control what the public knows. They have done nothing but add to distrust of the FBI and that will not change if their ilk makes the final decisions. By insisting that the documents go online, Trump would be letting taxpayers see for themselves what the government was up to, and what it was hiding. And to connect the dots between the various agencies involved.

The mainstream media — the lap dogs of the deep state and propaganda arm of the left

Ned Ryun, The Hill

Here’s hoping the left and the mainstream media, and excuse the redundancy, continue to defend violent gangs and terrorists, attempt image makeovers of brutal regimes like Iran and North Korea, and pretend that the overwhelming majority of Americans don’t understand that an informant is a spy. Many of us will enjoy watching that soul-sucking moment the night of Nov. 3rd, 2020 when they realize that instead of taking their Moby Dick down, they actually helped him win. Again.

Liberal Lies And Slanders Are A Slippery Slope To Trouble

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Being unable to convince the normals that they have nothing to lose but their chains, our liberal pals have simply given up on the idea of convincing anyone of anything at all. Instead, they are opting for the hitting-over-the-head solution, except their clubs are not wooden. Their clubs are institutional and cultural. They seek to eliminate our ability to speak – that’s the de-platforming part of their scheme. They want to eliminate any venues for dissenting argument.

The Media See Only One Collusion Story

John Fund, National Review

You’d think that Beltway reporters — many of whom are convinced that President Trump is such a menace to the country that he must be removed from office — would look into why most Americans view Mueller’s probe skeptically. You would be wrong. CBS did not even report its own poll on television. Nor did it give it anything other than the most cursory of coverage. All of this proves that media bias isn’t so much about how stories are covered with a clear slant but about how some important stories tend to be ignored because they involve “inconvenient facts.”

The Blessed Virgin Stormy Daniels?

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

It's one thing for liberal journalists to revel in the contradictions of a president dealing with the scandal of paying a porn star hush money at the same time he promotes religious freedom and the National Day of Prayer at the White House. It's another thing for the media to pretend they are somehow treading on the moral high ground next to the porn star/Resistance heroine as they peer down at the Trump team, endlessly proclaiming it might be "imploding in real time" and wishing it would.

Why Do Liberals Think We Are Morally Obligated To Die To Make Them Happy?

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Today, we side with our friends. And we celebrate the defeat of our enemies. We’re done with bleeding for liberal feelz. One of the beautiful aspects of the Trump revolution is that America is no longer afraid to take our own side, and the side of our allies, in a fight. Pity the poor liberals. The Normals are no longer cooperating, and it has to be frustrating for their putative superiors. How dare normal people refuse to die to make liberals feel better?

The Nature of Progressive Insensitivity

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Those who are by nature or habit intolerant mask their resulting guilt or fear by progressive virtue-signaling and occasional inadvertent revelations of their own moral selves. In other words, perhaps liberal Harvey Weinstein and social-justice kingpin Eric Schneiderman really did have more contempt for their non-white targets, just as Harry Reid may feel more comfortable with his own kind. And one way that such progressives square the circle of that reality is with an unimpeachable progressive façade — and just maybe that reality is now becoming widely known.

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.
