Recent actions and rhetoric of Democratic Party operatives and mainstream media figures are evoking the same undesirable label.
From newspaper opinion pieces to social media posts, the ghost of Senator Joseph McCarthy roams the D.C. corridors and McCarthyism permeates the Democrat playbook, punctuated with the leadership’s incessant murmurings of “the Russians hacked the election.”
As fallout of his investigation in the 1950s into Russian connections in the United States, McCarthy was accused of conducting a “witch hunt” and was also indelibly linked to the Hollywood blacklist era. Read more...
In an apparent effort to emulate President-elect Donald Trump’s social media mastery, President Obama began the New Year by giving his Twitter followers a revisionist history lesson.
The “Me Too” outgoing president posted a series of tweets that were supposed to tout his two-term accomplishments.
“As we look ahead to the future, I wanted to take a moment to look back on the remarkable progress that you made possible these past 8 years,” Obama tweeted.

One of the key issues that Donald Trump has brought to light during his presidential campaign run is the need for a wall at the southern border in order to bolster national security and ensure the safety and welfare of our country’s people.

But not Oprah Winfrey. The former queen of daytime talk appears to be ready to reprise her unprecedented chief political endorser role, this time for Obama’s 2012 campaign.

She may have ended her daytime show and may temporarily be struggling with her new cable channel, but her endorsement power is still intact, particularly when it comes to Democrats and Independent female voters. Read more...
Democrats wanted to use Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s rally this past weekend to motivate young voters to participate in the midterm elections.
The crowd was mostly Dems. But it also contained some generally apathetic Comedy Central fans.
The three-hour rally consisted mainly of satire and comedy with humorous sketches and surprise musical guests including Kid Rock, Ozzy Osbourne, the O’Jays, Sheryl Crow, Tony Bennett and the former Cat Stevens, Yusuf Islam.
In one rare quasi-political stunt, Stewart gave a “Medal of Reasonableness” to Velma Hart, the now famous lady who told Obama that she was “exhausted” from having to defend him. Read more...
