    Anti-Trump media celebrate Democratic victories, make up fishy story and other news disasters

    One of the few things journalists like more than pushing liberal agenda items like gun control and abortion is celebrating when Democrats win elections. One year after President Trump’s shocking upset victory, the media are still trying to overturn the result. That meant they had much to cheer when Democrats did well election night this week.

    MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell described the evening by saying “it feels like tonight’s history is being written by movie writers. It is so dramatic.” That was pretty much the attitude across news and entertainment media. READ MORE...

  • Biden 'Sunday Night Football' Interview Shows Campaign Finance 'Reform' Would Benefit Media, Not All People

    Biden ‘Sunday Night Football’ Interview Shows Campaign Finance ‘Reform’ Would Benefit Media, Not All People

    Many liberals point to the rising price tag of American political campaigns to support calls for campaign-finance reform.

    According to Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and many others, the billions of dollars donated to political campaigns by individuals and corporations amount to “legalized bribery” on the part of big corporations and the super-wealthy.

    But constraining private citizens’ ability to fund political speech would not empower the average citizen. Instead, one of the major beneficiaries would be nationwide media conglomerates and their wealthy owners. READ MORE...

  • We Don't Have To Wait For Due Process For An Opinion On Roy Moore

    We Don’t Have To Wait For Due Process For An Opinion On Roy Moore

    Don’t let healthy skepticism transform into tribal denialism.

    Due process is a vital legal concept that establishes rules and procedures to guard against unfair, arbitrary, untrue, or unreasonable treatment that deprives Americans of “life, liberty or property.” That’s because anyone can lie — including self-professed victims of sexual assault. You needn’t look further than the numerous young lives that have been ruined on college campuses by fabricated allegations to understand why due process is important. And anyone can be railroaded. Witchhunts are real. Mobs tend to form rather easily these days. The politically motivated smear the innocent for partisan reasons. Biased organizations peddle innuendo and gossip to exploit the public’s existing biases. READ MORE...

  • Why Some Conservatives Struggle with #MeToo, and the Way Forward

    Why Some Conservatives Struggle with #MeToo, and the Way Forward

    Several weeks ago, I authored an essay detailing my experience of being drugged by a stranger and expressing my thoughts about the #MeToo trend.

    While I suspected that the essay would resonate with a good percentage of those who read it, I never imagined just how many people would end up reading it. I greatly appreciate all those who shared and retweeted the essay, helping spread a message I am stunned to see had such a profound effect on so many.

    More than anything, I am deeply touched and humbled by the messages I received from those who felt my words had given a voice to emotions and experiences they had struggled for so long to express. I continue to be inspired by the bravery of those who shared their own stories as a result of the essay. READ MORE...

  • Supreme Court to Hear Case on Whether California Pro-Lifers Have to Promote Abortion

    Supreme Court to Hear Case on Whether California Pro-Lifers Have to Promote Abortion

    The Supreme Court agreed Monday to hear a critical First Amendment challenge to a California law that forces life-affirming pregnancy centers to promote abortion.

    The National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) is a group that promotes life-affirming options to women experiencing an unplanned pregnancy by supporting more than 1,400 pregnancy resource centers across the country, including more than 100 in California alone.

    NIFLA v. Becerra will be an incredibly important case for both free speech and the cause of life. Xavier Becerra is California’s state attorney general. READ MORE...

  • Hey You Self-Righteous Democrats & Republicans, Why Aren't You Demanding Senator Bob Menendez Step Aside?

    Hey You Self-Righteous Democrats & Republicans, Why Aren’t You Demanding Senator Bob Menendez Step Aside?

    The ongoing saga surrounding Judge Roy Moore’s candidacy as Senator from Alabama continues to cause pain and strife in the GOP.

    Tensions are high because the establishment GOP (who were already against Moore’s candidacy) have been the loudest calling for him to resign.

    Meanwhile, the average voter in Alabama is stuck with continuing to support a man who may be a sexual predator or voting for a radical pro-abortion leftist.

    I’m not going to rehash the debate over whether or not Moore is innocent  – only to say that there has been no proof presented and Moore vehemently denies the charges. READ MORE...
