Peace Through Violence: CNN’s Radical Chic Moment

CNN screwed up. And it reminds me of an incident from 1970. A headline writer admitted that the Antifa terror group seeks “peace through violence.” Later, presumably after receiving threats from Antifa terrorists, CNN removed the “peace through violence” sub-head. But the damage was done. CNN stumbled onto real news. Real news that exposes Antifa’s terrorist aims. Before we get to the dangers of normalizing political violence, aka “terrorism,” let’s remember a famous party. Read more →

Gullible Evil Losers at CNN Criticize London Cops for Using Too Many Bullets. UPDATE

Maybe we should consider CNN employees enemy combatants. CNN’s latest hate-crime: CNN is criticizing London police for using too many bullets.  That’s right. CNN will soon demand a UN war crimes tribunal to try, convict, and hang the London cops who put down the London Bridge terrorists. This photo caption appeared below this critical headline. CNN has not responded to my request for comments. Specifically, I asked CNN to provide the exact number of rounds police are allowed to use to stop a terrorist. Read more →

Finally Media Focus On America’s Real Problem

After years wasted as the press and politicians covered secondary matters, the major media have finally stepped up to address America’s deepest, most damaging problem. I’m talking about alleged plagiarism. And it’s about damn time. While serious problems fester, the media and politicians waste precious time and energy covering the massacres of police officers by black militants and the slaughter of Bastille Day revelers by Islamic terrorists. Is it any wonder that 70 percent of Americans consider the country on the wrong track? Read more →

Master of Manipulation

I’m going to share a secret about manipulation with you. Please do not use this powerful method for sinister deeds.

This Is Why Turning People Off Is A Terrible Idea

Sometimes a cause’s worst enemies are its best friends. In 1995, 56 percent of American described themselves as “pro-choice.” At the time, Michael Kinsley on CNN’s Crossfire declared the debate over. Then something strange happened. Americans started changing their minds. The pro-life movement whittled away at public opinion. By May of this year, Gallup found “pro-choice” to be at an all-time low: The 41% of Americans who now identify themselves as “pro-choice” is down from 47% last July and is one percentage point below the previous record low in Gallup trends, recorded in May 2009.

Is the Romney Campaign Serious About Winning?

Related articles The Romney Campaign today reminded me of the McCain Campaign of 2008. I’m pretty good at ignoring bogus, fraudulent polls like the one CNN released tonight. In that poll, CNN announced a massive 52-46 national lead for Obama. If true, the race would be all but over. CNN, of course, cooked the books on this one. Read more →

Who will feed the hungry, clothe the naked, tend the sick, visit the imprisoned … ?

The candidates blew the emotional turning point in Monday’s CNN/Tea Party debate. Blew it. Big. Before we go into that, hear me out on the pressure on those candidates. Lights, Camera, Panic Imagine being on a stage. Searing white brightness reduces your range of vision to a few degrees of arc. You hear hundreds of people making the sounds that audiences make, but you can’t really see them. Before you are journalists bent on catching in a gaffe, or unprepared, or vulnerable. Read more →
