McConnell to the Media: Your Race Card Is Maxed Out

Unless you’ve been in a coma for the past three days you know the story.

On Sunday, President Trump took to Twitter to tell The Squad that if they didn’t like it here in America (and it is blatantly obvious that at least three of them loathe America and its way of life), then perhaps they should decamp to the Third World sh** hole of their choice.

Let’s pause for a musical interlude (h/t to Archer01 for the reminder) and recall that telling people to get the hell out of here if they don’t like it is not something that is particularly new to American politics.

Immediately, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the NeverTrumpers and assorted weak and fearful Republicans were finding the tweets racist (I’m not really sure which race they are referring to, you only have five). There are things you can criticize the tweets for, but, in my view, it isn’t racist to tell someone that if you don’t like it here, find an place more amenable to your aesthetic. Perhaps someplace with no water and flyblown corpses festooning the landscape.

Just a short while ago, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was button-holed by some media types and they asked him about the brouhaha:

https://twitter.com/politico/status/1151200604003246080

This reminds me of the old Jon Stewart skit

We have gotten to a point where you can’t disagree or mock anyone on the left without being accused of some form of -ism or -phobia against which all right thinking people should unite. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the little Maduro fan girl, actually hinted that Nancy freakin Pelosi was racist for saying she wasn’t all that. The good thing about that is that most America seems to have wised up to the game and recognize that calling someone racist (or sexist or homophobic or whatever) is simply a cheap attempt to shut down a conversation that the listener doesn’t want to take place.

There are very real questions about the degree to which Tlaib and Omar and Ocasio-Cortez are actually loyal to this country and whether they will operate in this country’s best interests/ Pressley, it seems to me, is more of a garden variety racebaiter who doesn’t fit in all that well with the other three but who is tagging along for the press clippings. You may not like what Trump said but not liking it does not make it racist.

That Jeffrey Epstein Story Sure Died a Quick Death and the Reason Is Obvious

Westlake Legal Group jeffrey-epstein-mugshot-620x317 That Jeffrey Epstein Story Sure Died a Quick Death and the Reason Is Obvious sex trafficking Politics Pedophiles Newspapers Media Blackout media bias malpractice Little St. James journalism Jeffrey Epstein Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story donald trump democrats CNN Bill Clinton

FILE – This July 27, 2006 arrest file photo made available by the Palm Beach, Fla., Sheriff’s Office shows Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein, a wealthy financier and convicted sex offender, has been arrested in New York on sex trafficking charges. Two law enforcement officials said Epstein was taken into federal custody Saturday, July 6, 2019, on charges involving sex-trafficking allegations that date to the 2000s. (AP Photo/Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office, File)

Last week, news was exploding about the arrest and subsequent charging of Jeffrey Epstein, a serial pedophile and sexual abuser who had previously been let off via a sweetheart plea deal back in 2007.

Epstein’s news making ability wasn’t just about his crimes though. It was about who he was connected too, namely much of the rich and powerful in New York. The most serious contact appears to have been with Bill Clinton, who not only traveled many times with Epstein, but was also fingered on his “pedophile island” in the Caribbean by a victim.

As I wrote last week, Clinton is absolutely the most implicated major figure here and every investigative reporter that has any integrity left should be digging deep on this topic.

Every investigative journalist worth their salt should be diving deep into the Clinton and Epstein connection because it’s a flashing red light right now. Instead, we get side-stepping pieces like this one from Vanity Fair riffing about fairly irrelevant connections to Trump while ignoring the most disturbing revelations. Whether they are meaning to or not, the media are helping to cover for some really bad actors by refusing to shift their partisan rancor and follow the evidence.

That was wishful thinking though. On Friday, I tweeted this out with all the cynicism I could muster, opining that now that Sec. Acosta (the only figure with any connection to Trump) had resigned, the story would die a quick death.

Was I right? Absolutely.

The story has vanished. It’s like it never happened. We went from wall to wall coverage to radio silence, with only a few buried pieces on his finances seeing daylight. As long as Sec. Acosta was still around, the media had their hook to tie this all to Donald Trump, despite him having no serious relationship with Epstein and any possible malfeasance by prosecutors occurring over a decade before his presidency.

But when Acosta resigned at the end of the last week, that was it. The hook was gone. They couldn’t readily tie it to Trump anymore so they dropped it. This despite the fact that we know Bill Clinton lied about his interactions with Epstein in his press release on the matter.

Has any mainstream media outlet followed up on this? Anyone questioned Bill Clinton in person? Staked his house out? Stalked him in public to make him answer? Would any Republican ever be left alone over something as sensational and disturbing as the revelations about Clinton’s connections to Epstein? Of course not.

We’ve got a former President implicated in a sexual abuse scheme, on the flight logs with the underage girls, and visiting an island known for its sex trafficking…and no one outside of right wing media cares. CNN isn’t talking about, nor the major networks or newspapers. It doesn’t even appear any of those outlets are looking into it. It’s a total blackout.

What this shows is that the media never really cared about the women who were abused. It was always just another way to slap at Donald Trump. When that was no longer possible, they moved onto the next Trump outrage. It puts the moral vapidness of their profession on full display.

It’s Come To This: Biden Says He Might Challenge Trump To A Push-up Contest Because That’s The World We Live In Now

Westlake Legal Group joe-biden-caricature-620x443 It’s Come To This: Biden Says He Might Challenge Trump To A Push-up Contest Because That’s The World We Live In Now Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

Joe Biden-Caricature by DonkeyHotey, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

Technically, apparently, he was kidding. But with Old Crazy Uncle Joe, who can really be sure?

Biden appeared on “Morning Joe” for a Tuesday interview with co-host Mika Brzezinski and said he would immediately retaliate if Trump started poking fun at his behavior [during the 2020 debate].

“I would say, come on Donald, come on, man. How many push-ups do you want to do here, pal? I mean jokingly,” Biden said.

“I’m used to bullies and so my strategy is, just to go out and remember that famous expression my grandpop used to use … they said to Harry Truman, give them hell Harry. He said no, I’m just going to tell them the truth. They’re going to think it’s hell,” Biden [told Brzeznski].

Who’s ready to see two old dudes engaged in feats of strength and endurance on the 2020 debate stage? With Biden a scrapper from Scranton and Trump a pugilist from Queens, this election could shape up to be something along the lines of “Gangs of New York.”

Bring it.

Latina ICE Officer Becomes Internet Sensation “#ICEBae,” Slaps Down Leftists Telling Her to Feel Ashamed

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-1-3-620x427 Latina ICE Officer Becomes Internet Sensation “#ICEBae,” Slaps Down Leftists Telling Her to Feel Ashamed twitter Texas Politics Mike Pence Kiara Cervantes Internet immigration Ice Front Page Stories Featured Story Allow Media Exception #ICEBae

Allow me to introduce you to “#ICEBae,” a Latina officer with the department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. She recently became something of an overnight internet sensation after appearing in a photo alongside Mike Pence while he toured .

According to the New York Post, the officer’s real name is Kiara Cervantes and she hails from Texas. Within moments of appearing next to the VP as part of his security detail, the 26-year-old woman went viral, earning her the nickname “ICEBae” due to her beauty.

Due to her sudden rise in fame, Cervantes created a Twitter account in order to reach out to her new fandom. She told them in a tweet that she is grateful for her job and that she loves protecting her country.

“WOW I am in awe,” tweeted Cervantes. “Thank you all for the support! My job is so hectic at this moment but I am grateful. I love protecting my country!

She also made mention that it was an “honor” to provide security for Pence.

She later made a video confirming that the account was hers, which has been shared around the internet.

Of course, the hard-left parts of Twitter couldn’t stand the fact that an ICE officer would get positive press, much less a Latina one. They struck back with all the force and fury of children throwing a temper tantrum according to the NYP:

“This country is a mess, we are praising and trending #IceBae when she is literally a guard at a CONCENTRATION CAMP, guarding CHILDREN IN CAGES, RIPPING FAMILIES APART AT THE BORDER,” seethed one Twitter user. “You’re all sick, honestly.”

Another person said, “#IceBae is actively aiding in the internment of men, women, and children without trial or even so much as humane living conditions. She, along with every other officer going along with this is a traitor to the very ideas of justice and freedom.”

At one point, an internet leftist said that she should feel shame for being a Hispanic ICE officer and that her parents should disown her, adding that she’s “literal scum.” Cervantes defended herself in a now deleted tweet.

“I think that’s really rude and naive of you to say,” responded Cervantes. “You have no idea who my parents are and no idea what goes into my job on a daily basis… before speaking on something you know nothing about…. DONT. Regardless I’m blessed and thankful for the career I have.”

Sadly, the internet can’t take someone like Cervantes existing laying down.

Responding to Daily Caller alum Scott Greer who joked that she worked at a “concentration camp,” Cervantes did give us some insight as to what people were seeing in the photo.

“I can’t agree with concentration camps. But… this station in particular isn’t meant to be a holding facility hence the overpopulation of aliens. We are doing our best but some people won’t ever understand. They don’t know the daily of what my job consists of,” she tweeted.

All things considered, Cervantes seems to be a pretty level headed individual despite the aesthetic cause of her fame. She’s actually a registered Democrat according to the NYP, though she hasn’t voted since 2014.

Let’s hope Cervantes’s 15 minutes of fame don’t result in the left terrorizing her over being an ICE agent. There’s a lot of that going around lately.

AOC Tries to Maker Her Dismal Poll Numbers Out to Be An Illusion of Trump’s

Westlake Legal Group AlexandraOcasioCortez-620x317 AOC Tries to Maker Her Dismal Poll Numbers Out to Be An Illusion of Trump’s polls poll Politics Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats AOC Allow Media Exception Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., listens during a House Financial Services Committee hearing with leaders of major banks, Wednesday, April 10, 2019, on Capitol Hill in Washington. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)

Despite the media’s fawning over Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, she falls more into the “infamy” column than the “fame” column. Between killing jobs for New Yorkers and failing to denounce a terrorist who used language she uses as justification for his attack, AOC isn’t exactly a voter’s favorite choice.

This fact was revealed by an Axios poll that showed the New York democratic socialist was recognized by 74 percent of voters in the poll, but those voters only had a 22 percent favorable view of her.

It’s even worse for Rep. Ilhan Omar, who was recognized by 53 percent of the voters; but came in at a dismal 9% approval. As it turns out, taking a soft view of the people who murdered thousands of innocents in a terrorist attack isn’t good for favorability.

As the media continues to rage on about Trump’s “racist tweets,” Trump took to Twitter to defend himself and pointed out that the Democrat’s condemnation of his remarks via a resolution is “con game.” He said that he truly believes the “congresswomen” hate the United States and then pointed out that they aren’t very popular, using the Axios numbers as a guide.

“Those Tweets were NOT Racist. I don’t have a Racist bone in my body! The so-called vote to be taken is a Democrat con game. Republicans should not show “weakness” and fall into their trap,” tweeted Trump. “This should be a vote on the filthy language, statements and lies told by the Democrat Congresswomen, who I truly believe, based on their actions, hate our Country. Get a list of the HORRIBLE things they have said. Omar is polling at 8%, Cortez at 21%. Nancy Pelosi tried to push them away, but now they are forever wedded to the Democrat Party. See you in 2020!”

As I covered on Monday, while Trump’s tweets about the Congresswomen had their issues, they weren’t at all racist. Regardless, the media narrative is that it is and that’s what the Democrats are running with.

But I digress.

AOC decided to put up a defense of herself by calling Trump, and by extension the poll, a complete fabrication by pointing at Trump and comparing him to an authoritarian who uses “mass distortion” to push a narrative.

“Authoritarians rely on mass distortion of reality to further concentrate their power, and they will take advantage of anyone and anything to meet that end,” tweeted AOC.

That’s rich coming from an authoritarian who relies on mass distortions of reality to further concentrate her power.

This is the same AOC that told us that the world would fall into chaos in 12 years if we didn’t pass her dictator-esque legislation that would have lead the United States down into a socialist hell from which it would take decades to recover, if it ever did. This is also the same woman who posed in front of an empty parking lot in order to take pictures of herself looking sad in order to convince us that she was looking at migrant children being mistreated.

Distorting reality is what AOC does best. She even cooks up realities about herself through cringe-worthy videos where she’s a hero to future generations, and releases weird propaganda looking illustrations that make her look deep.

The truth is, AOC and her “#squad” are about as liked by voters as Yoko Ono is to Beatles fans. She’s a habitual liar, apologetically ridiculous, and comes off more as a spoiled child than a professional lawmaker.

This isn’t Trump’s illusion, this is a very real Ocasio-Cortez creation.

Proof of the Dems Approving Terrorism? Ayanna Pressley Blatantly Refuses to Condemn Antifa Firebomb Attack

Westlake Legal Group tlaib-omar-aoc-pressley-620x317 Proof of the Dems Approving Terrorism? Ayanna Pressley Blatantly Refuses to Condemn Antifa Firebomb Attack Liberal Elitism Front Page Stories Front Page freshman squad Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Congress Ayanna Pressley AOC antifa Abuse of Power

The party that loves to cast blame and lecture about promoting violence has a real problem on its hands now.

Antifa has made itself a rather despicable group in just the past month alone, to say nothing of the years spent being an unhinged group of aggressive dolts. Any proper thinking person has seen this group for what it is — a gang of radicals who try to justify their violence and vandalism in the name of correcting supposed social ills.

However this outfit has been able to flourish in the country because as it employs fascistic behavior it couches itself as battling fascism, and the media has been providing cover. The lack of objective reporting, and just as often the supportive commentary from the press, has seen this organization of thugs prosper, when they should have been exposed and hectored away.

Now it appears the Democrat party has embraced Antifa as well. Last week we all saw the story of the Antifa member who was armed and throwing firebombs at an ICE facility in Tacoma. The muted response to this in the press is revealing; their inability to report on the story tells the story. Think of another instance when guns and terrorist acts would NOT have the media frothing about everything from our violent political culture, to gun control. But in the Tacoma case, the press is largely quiet, and some have even called the attacker a “martyr”.

This is the case with the Democrats as well. We have been shown video of Ayanna Pressley, fresh off of her appearance at the hilariously inept anti-Trump Press conference yesterday. (This would be where Pressley called for the Democrats to not take the bait from the President, and the AOC, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib each stepped up and promptly took his bait in their outlandish comments.) Pressly was approached by a member of The Rebel News team, and asked to comment on the Antifa firebombing.

So much is in play here. First off, the complaint about being in her personal space is a rather ironic bit off complaining. Think the fiasco we witnessed during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings when Senate members were routinely hounded, and even chased into elevators by activists, who were roundly praised for their actions. Do something of a similar confrontational manner with a Democrat member, however, and there is a personal space violation.

But the point here in this video display is the abject refusal by Pressly to respond. She steadfastly refuses to condemn the violent actions. Consider the implication here. There is an individual from an established violent group, who intended to storm a government facility with weapons and violent intent, and here is a Democrat member of Congress refusing to condemn these actions. A sitting member of Congress refusing to condemn an attempted act of terrorism on a government facility is astounding to consider, let alone to witness.

Think of how often in the past two years we have seen Democrats coming forward to declare words which are supposedly promoting violence. Everything from innocuous comments to quoting Democrats verbatim are said to be violent rhetoric. What then do we say when a congresswoman refuses to step away from a violent attack? What is it called when they refuse to disavow a violent organization, and cannot see themselves to condemn an armed firebomb attack?

There is no chance either to attempt deflecting this, by saying she was not condoning it, and therefore you cannot say she supports it. The stock in trade with the Democrats and the media has long been that whenever a distaff member of the GOP says something controversial then party leaders are called on to condemn the words, or then it is declared that it is the platform of the entire party.

That means, according to their own established rules, that a Democrat in Congress refusing to condemn an act of violence they have effectively supported it. We are not even discussing controversial words here; this is an established act of terrorism on a government building.

And the Democrats are in support. This means that by extension Antifa is theirs to claim as well, and it is all thanks to the freshman class, The Squad that the party has been placing in front as the emblem of their party. This is all going so very wrong for the people who claim to have been swept into power during the past election.

Fraudster Shaun King Calls Antifa Firebomber a “Martyr” While Encouraging More Violence

This seems fine.

Shaun King, noted white guy, media personality, and self-styled #blacklivesmatter leader, praised the man who tried to firebomb an ICE facility as a “martyr.”

He deleted the tweets, but no worries, I’ve got the contents.

Willem Van Spronsen just became the first martyr attempting to liberate imprisoned refugees from a for-profit detention center in Tacoma, Washington.

His hero was John Brown -the white abolitionist who led the raid on Harpers Ferry in 1859.

This is what our country has come to. pic.twitter.com/y3STkjsp6o

— Shaun King (@shaunking) July 15, 2019

I’m not sure what the facility being “for profit” matters. But hey, it’s a good buzz-phrase.

The people in the facility have been detained by ICE because they have lawful deportation orders against them. Comparing any aspect of this nut job, who was incited by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her cohorts, to John Brown is just ludicrous.

No one is being enslaved here and just like Holocaust comparisons, it’s incredibly insensitive and gross to make such comparisons. These are people who purposely chose to break the law and even then, most of them had the opportunity to choose self-deportation instead of remaining in custody.

King goes on to laud the domestic terrorist as a hero who’s now “arm in arm with John Brown,” because this kind of praising of nonsensical violence totally isn’t dangerous.

We are told that this is the final letter of Willem Van Spronsen – who was shot and killed by law enforcement as he attempted an attack on a for-profit refugee detention center in Tacoma, Washington.

It’s a beautiful, painful, devastating letter.

He wasn’t crazy -inaction is. pic.twitter.com/YMO1vhXCHn

— Shaun King (@shaunking) July 15, 2019

So not acting is crazy? Then why is King not acting, instead choosing to hide behind Twitter? Is he a coward? Does he not really oppose Nazis? Inquiring minds and all that.

This is where Willem was murdered this weekend.

His actions will be called terrorism and people will call him crazy, but neither are true. His mind was very clear.

He is now “arm in arm with John Brown.”

These camps must be shut down. pic.twitter.com/wzQPEYC2j9

— Shaun King (@shaunking) July 15, 2019

His actions are being called terrorism because they were. Firebombing a government facility to push a political narrative is the definition of terrorism.

But leave it to a man who’s such a fraudster that he’s been dubbed “Talcolm X” to make ridiculous tweets like this, appropriating slavery in the process and basically begging for more people to get killed.

Will any of the outlets he works for condemn him? Nah, of course not. Will the media call him out? Of course not. He’s not a Republican after all.

Trump’s Main Competitor Launched a Major Platform Yesterday and Not a Soul Noticed

Westlake Legal Group Biden-620x378 Trump’s Main Competitor Launched a Major Platform Yesterday and Not a Soul Noticed Trump platform pelosi Obamacare Joe Biden healthcare Front Page Stories Featured Story elections 2020 Democrats

While we’re all parsing out Trump’s tweet storm, analyzing every word to death and raging into the wind on one side or other the rest of the world has just kept turning.

The path to 2020 is unfolding and with dozens of Democrat presidential candidates it is more important than ever for each one of them to be able to grab as much of the media spotlight as possible. However, at this point only one candidate is polling with numbers high enough to be considered any type of threat to Trump – Joe Biden.

There are a few vital subjects that every Democrat candidate must officially approach in order to reach their base -the border and illegal immigration, race, and healthcare.

When Obama first jammed Obamacare down America’s throat some of us who have lived under socialized medicine understood that the only thing it would guarantee is that politicians would forever be running on “fixing” the “fix” for healthcare. As a born Canadian, I can attest to that. I’ve never experienced on Canadian election in my 40-plus years in which a politician hasn’t run on fixing the broken medical system, because government doesn’t fix things.

So naturally Joe Biden’s stance on healthcare was set to be a major wind in his sails media-wise. After all, this is the man who served under the very president who brought us the “Affordable” Healthcare Act. It would be a delicate launch considering the failure of the policy. Biden needs to be able to carefully straddle the line between being proudly connected to it and admitting it didn’t really do what it promised.

On Monday Biden finally released his long-awaited healthcare platform…to deafening silence.

While Biden released the details of Obamacare 2.0, the rest of the world was raging at – or defending – Trump. Nary a soul noticed Biden’s soulless rehash of a nearly dead piece of legislation.

You can read about Biden’s plan here but it’s hardly worth the time. The bullet point wrap up is:

  • lower healthcare costs
  • expand insurance to the uninsured or underinsured
  • take on Big Pharma
  • improve healthcare quality
  • offer a public health exchange

Basically everything Obamacare was supposed to have done and didn’t.

It could have been worth at least a tiny boost in sycophant media circles…but then along came Trump. Suddenly, instead of talking about Joe Biden – the man who served as vice president to American’s first Black president – all they could talk about was Trump; and following that, the “Broad Squad” as they hogged the evening news cycle by stepping way out of their lane and into oncoming traffic.

Oh, to hear the conversations between Biden and Pelosi right now! Two of America’s most experienced politicians upstaged by a tweet-happy president and four freshman congresswomen.

It’s almost as if it were planned.

Trevor Noah: In Trump’s Head You Can’t Be a Person of Color and An American

Westlake Legal Group noah-620x340 Trevor Noah: In Trump’s Head You Can’t Be a Person of Color and An American tweets Trump trevor noah talk show Front Page Stories Featured Story Entertainment Culture comedy

The fallout from Trump’s tweet storm on Monday is still rolling. Naturally the talk show circuit picked up the President’s comments and also naturally there was no nuance or even actual thoughtfulness involved.

The Daily Show host Trevor Noah took his turn at taking swipes (some earned).

“I don’t know what’s worse, the fact that the president thought it was acceptable to say go back to where you came from, or the fact he said it to people who are already where they came from. You know, it’s almost like, in Trump’s head you can’t be a person of color and an American, which is strange because he of all people should know that you can be two things at the same yeah, I mean, he’s bald and has a full head of hair. It doesn’t make sense! But we accept it. Not surprisingly, not surprisingly, Mr. Mexicans are rapists doesn’t think he says anything bad.”

POTUS deserves to be ridiculed, but as usual the criticism is mostly based on fantasy rather than reality. Trump never said Mexicans are rapists (he said criminals are streaming over our open borders alongside good people) but the progressive media-types are stuck on stupid with that one.

“I mean, he’s bald and has a full head of hair.” – I guffawed at that one.

There’s no comedy in the middle of the road, so obviously entertainers like Noah have to come down hard on one side or the other. Would we expect anything less?

Fox 10’s Kari Lake out in Phoenix, Arizona, is an Emmy award winning journalist and isn’t scared to about what people might think of her connections to the right despite what her bosses may fear. Not only is she not afraid of having to answer for her account on Parler, she has some bombs to throw at her managers who are pushing her to hide her account.

As Lake was about to do a Facebook live with her co-host John Hook, when Hook informed Lake that the higher ups would like her to hide her Parler account because of its associations with the “far-right.”

“I think they just think it’s been branded as a far-right kind of place,” Hook said.

“Jesus,” said Lake, clearly annoyed.

“So they don’t want you tied in with anything like that, where you’re going to get blowback from the New Times or whoever it is,” continued Hook.

“F**k them. They’re 20-year-old dopes,” Lake asserted. “That’s a rag for selling marijuana ads”.

“I know,” Hook responded. “But then you’re in a position where they’ve gotta explain it or you’ve gotta explain it”.

“I’m reaching people,” Lake said.

To be clear, Parler is not a “far-right” social media network. Thousands on thousands have joined up with Parler over the last year due to Twitter’s clear preference for left-leaning accounts and its punishment of right-leaning accounts for so much as sneezing in the wrong direction.

It’s ridiculous that Lake should have to hide her Parler account out of fear that someone like the New York Times would see it and make she or the station answer for it, and while it’s fun to watch Lake drop “f-bombs” all over her timid managers, the real lede here shouldn’t be buried.

The entire reason that Lake was told to hide her Parler account in the first place is because of fears that the mainstream media would swoop in and label she or the station as alt-right sympathizers, showing the fear the mainstream media puts into people when it comes to expressing themselves, or even associated with certain people. The underlying words used by Hook show us some interesting things. Firstly that they fear the New York Times would actually feel the need to spotlight Lake’s association with the Parler platform, and that they would promote the idea that it is something that only far-right people associate with.

In truth, Lake had the right idea. It’s unclear if she is right or left leaning and, to be honest, it doesn’t matter. As she said, she’s reaching people. She’s willing to venture into places where people who think differently are and having conversations with them on level ground.

That, in my opinion, puts her above in a class of journalism above the New York Times.
