A Witch Hunt Is Exactly What It Is


After Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the FBI’s investigation into the so-called Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, the responsibility for supervising the Russia probe went to Rod Rosenstein, who, during the time period since Sessions’ recusal took place, had been serving as acting attorney general.

Rosenstein is the official who appointed Robert Mueller as a special counsel to take over the FBI investigation.

As previously represented by President Donald Trump, former FBI director James Comey, in his sworn testimony before a congressional committee, indicated that the president was not the subject of any FBI probe.

Hollywood Hysteria over Paris Climate Accord


Immediately after President Donald Trump announced his decision to exit the Paris climate accord, Hollywood’s “geopolitical experts” flooded the media landscape with their madcap predictions and negative prattle.

The action taken by the president should not really have come as a surprise to anyone who is even mildly aware of politics and culture, whether he or she resides on the left, right, or center of the climate change spectrum.

After all, during the election cycle the president, who in his short time in office has already made good on a number of campaign promises, also explicitly said that once elected he would pull out of the accord, due its fundamental unfairness to the United States.

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.

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.

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.

Beyond McCarthyism


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.

Oscars Reveal Hollywood`s Vices


Hollywood used to be a place where larger-than-life celebrities possessed the intangible quality of “star power.”

However, things have changed over the course of time and have done so in a manner that appears to be as dramatic as the cinematic art itself so frequently manifests.

The entertainment industry has been thoroughly transformed by a tidal wave of new technologies. And the ever-present insecurity, of which executives who run the largest studios often speak, has caused a torrent of franchise films, sequels, and reboots to be overrepresented on the marquees of movie theaters across the country.

Zuckerberg`s Latest Venture into Politics


Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg recently took a trip to the Political Land of Oz.

In a highly partisan Facebook post, he sharply criticized the executive orders that President Donald Trump recently signed, which relate to our nation’s immigration policy.

The social media magnate appeared to ditch logic and accuracy in his post and instead favored the use of tired Democratic talking points to make the liberal case.

Going after the president directly, Zuckerberg posted, “Like many of you, I’m concerned about the impact of the recent executive orders signed by President Trump.”
