Martina Navratilova’s loyalty to Trump-hating overlords

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

The requirement to prove one’s fealty to Trump-hating leftist overlords impacts more people than you realize. As a testament to what the left does to the very people they claim to represent, Ms. Navratilova has been reduced to sniping at another gay person who is actually doing work to improve the lives of everyone and working to, literally, save the lives of gay people in countries that remain determined to imprison and even kill them. The strategy of the bullies on the left to destroy an icon like Ms. Navratilova is meant to send a message to every other liberal: Don’t you dare step out of line or you will pay a horrible price.

Bad Gaslighting Epidemic Sweeps The Elite

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Because they're hiding their own incompetence, our elite tries to convince us that we are crazy for noticing just how lame they are. That’s called “gaslighting,” the straight-faced denial of what’s happening right in front of you that tries to leverage your politeness and deference to convince you that it’s not the elite that’s rotten. You’re just crazy for noticing, you crazed crazy person of craziness. It’s bad enough that they lie to us all the time. But what makes it worse is how their lies are such glaringly obvious fabrications and/or dissimulations that the deepest insult is that they think we might believe them.

The Incredible Vanishing Whistleblower

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Imagine the Republicans had tried to impeach then-President Bill Clinton in 1998 for some phone call he made to a foreign leader, and that they'd said they had an anonymous whistleblower who never heard Clinton's phone call. The press would have mocked all of it as an enormous waste of time and money and a huge distraction from the legislative "business of the people." Their completely different and partisan reaction to this only underlines how much collusion goes on between the journalists and the Democrats. They're hard to distinguish from one another. They use all the same talking points and catchphrases.

Anonymous Accusations and Their Dangerous Purveyors

David Catron, The American Spectator

Anonymous accusations have been regarded with suspicion by honorable leaders for at least two millennia. Media hype and third-rate pollsters notwithstanding, the majority of voters know exactly what is going on here. The danger is that they will eventually conclude that any system that employs such people is irredeemably corrupt. Trump’s supporters voted for him because they still believe in the system, that it can be fixed with a new kind of leader who doesn’t worship the state gods to whom the Washington establishment swears obeisance. This may be the last chance to convince the voters that they really matter.

Ken Cuccinelli For Secretary Of Homeland Security

Our preferred replacement for acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan is acting Director of the Citizenship and Immigration Services Ken Cuccinelli. Cuccinelli has three things that McAleenan lacked – a commitment to the Trump border security agenda, a willingness to fight Democrats and the Republican establishment to make the President’s agenda a reality, and the effective TV presence necessary to sell it to the American people.

The Self-Congratulation in Banned Books Week

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

"We work to never allow content with hate speech in our stores, and in cases when something slips through, we take quick and resolute action to remove it." The American Library Association has a new list of Top 10 Most Challenged Books in libraries. Troublemakers with time on their hands could have fun compiling a list of books that libraries choose not to stock due to controversial content. We could host a splashy celebration of Books Librarians Hate Week. They should acknowledge that some noxious books and ideas are worth protesting or ignoring. But you cannot celebrate free speech except for that which you want to ban.

126 Conservative Leaders Denounce Attempts to Impeach President Trump

126 participants in the Conservative Action Project have released a letter to Congress saying it is becoming increasingly clear that this march toward impeachment is nothing more than a partisan coup d’état to overturn the 2016 election and prevent voters from making their own decision as to whether to reelect the president in 2020.

Trump Approval Rating UP Since Fake "Whistleblower" Surfaced

If you look only at high-quality polls of Trump’s approval rating before and after news of the Ukraine scandal broke there’s actually been little change in Trump’s popularity – if anything, it has ticked slightly up with a new Hill-HarrisX survey released on October 2, showing President Trump’s approval ticked up to 49 percent — its highest mark this year.

Beware the 'Right-Wing Media Machine'?

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

CNN media reporter Oliver Darcy is warning the public about a "right-wing media machine" that has demonstrated "zero willingness to abide by any traditional rules of engagement." That shameless "machine" opposing President Trump's impeachment and removal is, of course, composed of Fox News, talk radio, conservative websites and an "army of trolls" on the internet. It's easy to say your opponent is "weaponizing" information or specializes in "disinformation." What's hard is to believe the leftist media that portrays itself as "independent" and "nonpartisan" and only working to make "democracy" work. Nobody's buying that nonsense, and nobody should put up with the leftist media's duplicity.

Ukrainegate Shows We Need Fred Fleitz As Director Of National Intelligence

The United States needs an effective and uncorrupted intelligence apparatus to play its part in defending the nation, and Fred Fleitz has shown himself to be an adept and able administrator capable of doing the housecleaning necessary to air out the stench of Leftwing partisan politics in the intelligence community.

Conservatives Unravel Deep State Coup Against Trump

In this long article we summarize the tangled backstory conservatives have been able to unravel about the latest Deep State coup against President Trump. The details they have developed reveal a breathtaking assault on the Constitution by a conspiracy of Democrats and Far Left operatives in the intelligence agencies, in Congress and in Soros-funded organizations.

In Ukraine matter, Democrats apply Russiagate lesson: Strike fast, don't wait to find out what happened

Byron York, Washington Examiner

A fundamental fact of political investigations: They often uncover an inconclusive set of facts. Partisans can argue those facts one way or the other. Most recently, Democrats who had accused Trump of conspiring or coordinating with Russia were deeply disappointed by the release of the Mueller report. After all the media talk and all the accusations and after two years of investigating with full law enforcement powers, special counsel Robert Mueller could not establish that a conspiracy or coordination even took place. The lesson of Trump-Russia is: Move fast, don't withhold judgment. And don't want for the results a long, ponderous investigation.

Abortion Horrors Buried By the Press

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

2,200 dead unborn babies were discovered in the Illinois home of a recently deceased abortion doctor named Ulrich Klopfer. Only Fox News cared about this revolting story. CNN has given it about a minute on air one weekend day, and The New York Times' initial story was put deep inside the paper. But ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, NPR and PBS? These networks had hardly any interest in something a thousandfold more horrific. The "news" networks couldn't care less. They're currently stoking a national panic about teenagers caught up in a "vaping epidemic" or championing children who profess they are doomed to die in the next 12 years due to global warming.

What Conservatives Are Saying About Impeachment

We're with our friend Mark Levin: What a stupid, baseless, phony scandal the Democrats, Nevertrumpers & media are trying to promote. Endless conga line of Democrats and the like crying crocodile tears while covering up for the crooked Biden family. It won’t work.

Media have only themselves to blame for disbelief in Ukraine scandal

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

I believe the so-called “whistleblower” — the hearsay gossip witness who neither saw nor heard anything directly — went tattling to the inspector general knowing full well that the IG would take his evidence, thank him kindly and send him back to his cubicle in whatever “intelligence” agency was dumb enough to hire him in the first place. The inspector general would handle appropriately and realize there was absolutely nothing to report to Congress. Then, of course, it would leak. Only Trump took to Twitter and went on live TV and laid it all out himself. It is just what you have to do when you cannot trust the media to do its job anymore.

Comey and Baquet — united against Trump — have caused a nonstop feeding frenzy

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

You don’t have to be a cynic to see a pattern. It’s a game, with news organizations competing to see which one can get the story that brings down the president, and other media and 2020 candidates piling on in knee-jerk fashion. It’s a rinse-and-repeat exercise. Indeed, the so-called whistleblower complaint recalls the early days of Trump’s presidency when Comey and other Barack Obama holdovers were poisoning the well. Even the word “whistleblower” suggests something untoward happened. But what? The media was in the dark but still the coverage took on tones of hysteria. They didn’t know the source of the complaint, the agency, the substance or any evidence.

Establishment Political News Influence Nosediving

The establishment media's efforts to destroy Trump are having the opposite effect – the media’s credibility is being destroyed, Sleepy Joe Biden is falling fast to Elizabeth Warren and, according to Rasmussen’s daily tracking poll 52 percent of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance.

Earth Worship and Climate Confessions

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

New York's Union Theological Seminary, a progressive Christian adjunct to Columbia University, put out a tweet that many people must have assumed was a satire from the religion pranksters at The Babylon Bee. "Today in chapel, we confessed to plants," it began. "Together, we held our grief, joy, regret, hope, guilt and sorrow in prayer; offering them to the beings who sustain us but whose gift we too often fail to honor." Then they asked for an Amen: "What do you confess to the plants in your life?" Liberal guilt has never been more pronounced. We recommend as proper corporal punishment using the switch, provided liberals then apologize to the bamboo.

New York Times Front Page Promotes Fake News And Lies About Guns

Smart policy decisions are rarely made by a population steeped in misinformation and fear, but through fake news and outright lies that is exactly the atmosphere The New York Times and other Far Left media outlets seek to create in order to disarm law abiding Americans.

The Kavanaugh reboot

Cal Thomas, Washington Times

Attacking the legitimacy of Brett Kavanaugh and the Supreme Court is all the left has in their dwindling arsenal. They’re still after President Trump’s tax records. They hate his Supreme Court appointments. They are livid that his economic policies are working when they have always believed the economy was their issue — never mind their failure to achieve any level of success close to what Mr. Trump’s administration has accomplished. If the current Democratic Party were a defendant in court, it could credibly plead insanity. Let’s see how far this insane behavior gets them with voters in the next election.
