The Media Equalizer’s Free Speech Fight by Jeffrey Lord | June 6, 2017, 4:02 PM

Question: What does Kathy Griffin’s grotesque ISIS-style photo holding a mock head of a decapitated President Trump have in common with the recent effort of a left-wing attempt to intimidate Sean Hannity’s sponsors, thus forcing Hannity off the television airwaves?

Answer: Everything.

Hysteria Over Paris Pullout by Cal Thomas | June 5, 2017, 5:20 PM

For sheer hilarity and hyperbole it's hard to beat a recent headline on a Washington Post editorial opposing President Trump's decision to remove the U.S. from the nonbinding and unenforceable Paris climate agreement.

"Trump turns his back on the world," it screamed.

A close second goes to the headline on a New York Times piece by columnist David Brooks: "Donald Trump Poisons the World."

Hillary Clinton — Endless Sore Loser by David Limbaugh | June 5, 2017, 5:16 PM

Attacks on President Donald Trump are commonplace -- many depict him as this wildly bizarre, classless person occupying the Oval Office -- but have critics fairly considered what a horror show a Hillary Clinton presidency would have been?

Why is this relevant, you ask? Well, because the liberal media are permanently afflicted with Trump derangement syndrome and won't quit feeding Clinton's narcissistic obsession with her defeat. Did the media fixate on Mitt Romney's defeat to Barack Obama and forever question him about it?

Did Someone Say, ‘Have a Happy Memorial Day?’ by R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr. | June 2, 2017, 3:36 PM

Last weekend, while visiting the New Jersey shore, I heard an astonishing number of vacationing Americans -- all well-intentioned, to be sure -- greet their fellow vacationers with a cheerful "have a happy Memorial Day." That cannot be right. The more I think about it, that greeting sounds as misguided as saying "have a happy Good Friday" on that solemn day. Memorial Day is a time to remember the fallen soldiers and sailors. It is a time for reflection. So do we say "have a reflective Memorial Day"? That is not right either. What is right?

A Conservative Mom Breaks the Pot Taboo by Michelle Malkin | June 1, 2017, 12:29 PM

Let's talk about marijuana.

Specifically, let's talk about how and why I came to be one of the countless parents across America (and around the world) who have let their chronically ill children try it.

Overpopulation Hoax by Walter E. Williams | June 1, 2017, 12:27 PM

In 1798, Thomas Malthus wrote "An Essay on the Principle of Population." He predicted that mankind's birthrate would outstrip our ability to grow food and would lead to mass starvation. Malthus' wrong predictions did not deter Stanford University professor Paul Ehrlich from making a similar prediction. In his 1968 best-seller, "The Population Bomb," which has sold more than 2 million copies, Ehrlich warned: "The battle to feed all of humanity is over.

Terrorism's 'Groundhog Day' Scenario by Cal Thomas | June 1, 2017, 12:24 PM

The terrorism scenario is always the same. Events repeat themselves, like in the film Groundhog Day.

First the video of screaming innocents, as in Manchester, England, where an Islamist detonated a suicide bomb at an Ariana Grande concert, killing at least 22 people, many of them children, and wounding dozens of others.

The Liberal Media and the Art of High-Tech Lynchings by Jeffrey Lord | May 27, 2017, 4:00 PM

The headline at Mediaite was this: 

Hillary Clinton Says Donald Trump Presidency Will ‘End in Disgrace With His Impeachment’

How Unhinged Media Bias Cost Me My Job by Stacy Washington | May 27, 2017, 2:30 PM

Everyone has bias.  When we see print and media journalists claim to be neutral holding allegiance only to the truth, we certainly long to believe that is true.  Yet none of that neutrality exists in major mainstream news media at present.  A new Harvard study highlights just how partisan and jaded things have become.
