Why Robert Mueller Should Not Be Special Counsel


In a surprise move the Department of Justice via acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein named Robert Mueller, a former FBI head, as a special counsel to ostensibly oversee the bureau’s probe into Russia’s attempts to influence the 2016 election.

The White House was given only about 30 minutes warning before the announcement was made.

Mueller’s appointment was “not a finding that crimes have been committed,” Rosenstein said in a statement.

But, according to former FBI Assistant Director, James Kallstrom, there are serious crimes that the special counsel must focus on.

Media in Meltdown over Comey Firing


In this age of magnified reality, a two-way relationship has developed between the dominant media and the Democratic Party, one that eerily parallels a biological phenomenon.

Symbiosis is the scientific term used to describe a specific biological interaction between two different species wherein both living creatures depend upon one another for their very survival. This is the state of the relationship that presently exists between the left-leaning media and Democrats.

The messaging that is occurring as a result of this symbiotic relationship has become so uniform in content and vantage point it is often difficult, if not impossible, to determine its point of origin.

Colbert Doubles Down as FCC Investigates


Stephen Colbert is still dealing with the fallout that has occurred from an airing of “The Late Show” during which the CBS late night host let loose with a number of crude and obnoxious insults aimed directly at the president.

The lowest moment in Colbert’s opening monologue came when he crossed a cultural threshold by over-sexualizing his humor with an intolerably offensive line involving Vladimir Putin and the president.

Although the term Colbert used in his disgusting lack of witticism was censored for the purposes of the broadcast, it was unfortunately quite understandable to viewers the world over.

100 Days of Protest Theater


Another day, another protest. Over the past weekend various left-wing groups coalesced to make their way down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. for what organizers dubbed “The People’s Climate March.”

Counted among the activist crowds were two of the more well known leftist faces, Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio and former Vice President Al Gore.

As is emblematic of these types of events, a few hundred related marches and/or rallies were staged around the country. Lurking behind the protest events was left-wing billionaire and ubiquitous donor to subversive organizations George Soros.

Far-left Hollywood Partly Responsible for Crisis in Venezuela


The people of Venezuela are currently suffering through what can only be described as a full blown humanitarian crisis, and some big name celebrities are partly to blame for the nightmarish conditions that are plaguing the South American country.

Venezuela’s problems began when far-left wing dictator Hugo Chavez grabbed hold of the reins of power in 1999, after having failed in a coup attempt to take control six years earlier.

Chavez told the same malevolent tale that socialists always use to manipulate the populace: Each and every person will have an equal share in the prosperity that is sure to come.

Mainstream Media Slam Jimmy Fallon for Being `Too Soft on Trump`


When Jimmy Fallon returned to host “Saturday Night Live” this past weekend, America learned what the mainstream media use as criteria to evaluate today’s entertainment.

Apparently, the quality of writing, depth of material, delivery of lines, etc., are not as important to mainstream media outlets as whether the entertainment content in question sufficiently attacks President Donald Trump.

The same media pundits that praise Stephen Colbert and “SNL” for non-stop anti-Trump programming have found Fallon wanting for his apparent failure to hit Trump hard enough.

Hollywood Liberals React to Missile Strike on Syria


In response to the recent chemical weapons attack in Syria, which injured numerous men, women, and children and took the lives of scores of civilians, the Trump administration authorized a military strike in the region.

U.S. ships in the Mediterranean launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles, which struck the Al Shayrat airfield in Syria, the same airfield from which the chemical weapons were unleashed.

In the aftermath of the administration’s military action, Hollywood elites have taken to social and conventional media to let their opinions be known.

New Scarlett Johansson Film Ensnared in `Whitewashing` Controversy


“Whitewashing” is the term currently used to describe the Hollywood practice of casting white actors in non-white character roles. It is being used in a severe critique of actress Scarlett Johansson and the film in which she appears, “Ghost in the Shell,” which opened this past weekend.

The Media Action Network for Asian Americans (MANAA), a group that monitors the depiction and coverage of Asian Americans in the media, issued a statement condemning the casting of Johansson in the new movie.

Attacks on Nunes Unwarranted


A sizable portion of the Democratic Party has been busily investing significant media capital to promote the false narrative that Russian interference in the presidential election is to blame for Hillary Clinton’s stunning loss.

Evidently, members of this same intractable liberal faction have now turned their attention toward their next target in what appears to be an endless roster of individuals that the Democrats can go about systematically disparaging, discrediting, and sometimes seeking to destroy, in a political sense.

GOP Congressman Devin Nunes looks to be the next one up. The House Intelligence Committee Chairman recently endured an assault carried out by means of partisan political hyperbole.

Real Congressional Probe of Obama Surveillance Tactics Sorely Needed


Lost in the mainstream media push to have the public accept the tall tale that “the Russians hacked the election,” which appears to have been crafted by disaffected Democrats and their far-left allies, is a series of unresolved issues that are in serious need of investigation.

After a classified report delivered to Congress by the Justice Department purportedly lacked the necessary evidence to support President Donald Trump’s assertion that his predecessor had engaged in wiretapping, politicians and news outlets began to massage the public psyche with the notion that the story involving the Obama administration’s investigation of then-candidate Trump, and of individuals involved in his campaign, is somehow a closed book.
