Eric Ciaramella’s Name Is Not a Secret, and #TeamTrump Only Hires Winners

NATIONAL AFFAIRS DESK, Martinsburg, W.Va. Working from a McDonald’s here this morning because my brother Kirby has an all-day doctor’s appointment at the VA Medical Center, and contributions to the tip jar would be sincerely appreciated.

Republicans ‘Punch Back Twice as Hard’ With Ad Targeting CNN Elitists

  In 2009, when the Obama administration was trying to ram its agenda through Congress, White House chief of staff Jim Messina told nervous Democrats not to worry about criticism: “If you get hit, we will punch back twice as hard.” That line has since become a regular meme at Instapundit — Democrats can’t stand […]

‘Credulous Boomer Rube Demo’

  The word “demo” is, of course, short for demographic: CNN’S DON LEMON: Oh as I said, NPR is standing by their reporter after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused her of lying.

Elizabeth Warren’s Media Helpers Try to Revive Her Campaign at Bernie’s Expense

Beto Beaten by Buttigieg in Debate

  The very first time I heard Pete Buttigieg speak — during my trip to South Carolina in March — I was impressed by him. Of course, his policy ideas are all entirely wrong, but Buttigieg’s demeanor and delivery are excellent. He combines a policy wonk’s mastery of details with a folksy Midwestern manner in […]

The Worst Week in Media History: O’Keefe Exposes Bias of CNN’s Zucker

  First, there was Ronan Farrow’s exposé of widespread sexual harassment (and official tolerance thereof) at NBC News. Now, James O’Keefe has got undercover video confirming blatant bias at CNN: CNN President Jeff Zucker has insisted the cable news network has to maximally focus on pushing the story of Democrats trying to impeach President Donald […]

Biden Accuses Americans of Ignorance, Warns of Anti-Gay ‘Terrorist Groups’

  Democrat presidential candidates shamelessly pandered to the advocates of sodomy in a televised town hall Thursday on CNN, and Joe Biden did not ingratiate himself with the Left when he joked about “coming out” and then made a gaffe that’s weird even by Biden’s standards: Think about it. The idea it’s normal. It’s normalized. […]
