CNN’s Chris Cuomo: Laura Ingraham Pushing Fear About ‘Scary People from the South’

CNN’s Chris Cuomo tonight took a swipe at Fox News’ Laura Ingraham for comments she made about immigrants last night. Cuomo said the strategy on the right is to “push fear and loathing,” with step one being: “If you don’t vote, the scary people from the south are coming for you.” And then he teed up Ingraham’s commentary from last night to viewers:
“Your views on immigration will have zero impact and zero influence on a House dominated by Democrats who want to replace you, the American voters, with newly amnestied citizens and an ever-increasing number of chain migrants.”
“You see that picture?” Cuomo said. “That’s what they want you to think all immigrants look like, people laying on the floor, splayed out, not as civilized as you, different from you. Amnesty and chain migration, which is also called family reunification when it’s used by good people Continue reading "CNN’s Chris Cuomo: Laura Ingraham Pushing Fear About ‘Scary People from the South’"

Washington Post Releases Khashoggi’s Last Column: Arab Gov’ts ‘Have Been Given Free Rein to Continue Silencing the Media’

The Washington Post has released Jamal Khashoggi‘s final column before his disappearance––a powerful piece on the importance of free expression and a free press for the Arab world. Khashoggi begins by writing about how in the most recent “Freedom in the World” report, only one Arab nation is considered free and only a few of them are “partly free.” “As a result,” he writes, “Arabs living in these countries are either uninformed or misinformed. They are unable to adequately address, much less publicly discuss, matters that affect the region and their day-to-day lives. A state-run narrative dominates the public psyche, and while many do not believe it, a large majority of the population falls victim to this false narrative. Sadly, this situation is unlikely to change.” And Khashoggi very directly addresses the “free rein” Arab governments have been given to “continue silencing the media at an increasing Continue reading "Washington Post Releases Khashoggi’s Last Column: Arab Gov’ts ‘Have Been Given Free Rein to Continue Silencing the Media’"

Rosenstein Defends Mueller Probe: People ‘Entitled to Be Frustrated,’ But It’s ‘Appropriate and Independent’

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who may very well be on the outs after the midterms, gave a rare interview to The Wall Street Journal today vociferously defending special counsel Robert Mueller‘s Russia probe. Rosenstein told the Journal, “People are entitled to be frustrated, I can accept that. But at the end of the day, the public will have confidence that the cases we brought were warranted by the evidence and that it was an appropriate use of resources.” He said the investigation has been “appropriate and independent.” There are, of course, lingering questions about that recent report saying Rosenstein had at one point talked about secretly recording Trump, though subsequent reporting said people had interpreted it as a joke. Rosenstein told the Journal that “the president knows that I am prepared to do this job as long as he wants me to do Continue reading "Rosenstein Defends Mueller Probe: People ‘Entitled to Be Frustrated,’ But It’s ‘Appropriate and Independent’"

Washington Post to Run New Column Filed by Jamal Khashoggi Before His Disappearance

The Washington Post has announced it will be running a brand-new column from Jamal Khashoggi that he filed prior to his disappearance. And the subject of his new column, per the Post, is about “the need for a free press in the Mideast.” Khashoggi is believed dead after being killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, and there is growing international pressure on Saudi Arabia over his murder. The op-ed page will include a new piece from the editorial board, and Khashoggi’s column will be posted online at 8 pm EST tonight. President Donald Trump has publicly noted multiple times that Saudi Arabia has so far denied involvement, and today he was asked whether the FBI is investigating. “Well, he wasn’t a citizen of this country, for one thing,” Trump said. “And we’re going to determine that––and you don’t know whether or not we have, do you?” Continue reading "Washington Post to Run New Column Filed by Jamal Khashoggi Before His Disappearance"

Tapper: Trump ‘Stunningly Dismissive’ About Saudi Arabia, Has Been Harsher on Stormy, Elizabeth Warren, Taylor Swift

CNN’s Jake Tapper opened his show this afternoon with Jamal Khashoggi and President Donald Trump‘s “stunningly dismissive tone about any possible Saudi leadership role” in his disappearance and likely killing. “The President is denying that he’s giving cover in any way to the Saudis, insisting he simply wants to find out what happened,” Tapper said. “But that’s about as tough as the President was willing to get.” In an interview with the AP yesterday, not only did Trump not want to blame Saudi Arabia yet, but he said it’s a case of “guilty until proven innocent” just like Brett Kavanaugh. And as Tapper said, “He has had harsher words in the last week or so for Stormy Daniels, Senator Elizabeth Warren, and Taylor Swift than he has had for the Saudis responsible for the likely butchering and slaughter of a Washington Post columnist.” Watch above, Continue reading "Tapper: Trump ‘Stunningly Dismissive’ About Saudi Arabia, Has Been Harsher on Stormy, Elizabeth Warren, Taylor Swift"

Rudy Giuliani: Democrats Are Engaging in ‘Racial Stereotyping’ Against White Women

Rudy Giuliani took to Twitter this afternoon to praise Tucker Carlson‘s new book and blast Democrats for, as he argued, embracing “racial stereotyping” against white women. President Donald Trump‘s lawyer has not been as vocal about the Mueller probe in the past few weeks as he has been earlier this year, but he still takes to Twitter and recently blasted Hillary Clinton over her recent comments about civility: Today he swiped at Clinton again, bringing up her comments from a few months ago about how white women voted to say Democrats are taking her Continue reading "Rudy Giuliani: Democrats Are Engaging in ‘Racial Stereotyping’ Against White Women"

Hannity Renews Attack on Ben Sasse: Bill Maher Used a Racial Slur In Front of You, and You ‘Said NOTHING’

Sean Hannity has been on a long tear against Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) after a report came out yesterday that the Nebraska Republican criticized him in his new book. To recap: Hannity responded to the book excerpts by calling Sasse a disappointment and accusing him of “conning” him. Sasse later made an offer for them to debate, after which Hannity trashed him as a “con artist” and mocked him as a phony. And Hannity isn’t letting up, this time going after the Republican senator for not being more condemnatory towards Bill Maher: As a refresher, since this was a couple million news cycles ago, Maher spoke with Sasse last year and, as they engaged in some light Continue reading "Hannity Renews Attack on Ben Sasse: Bill Maher Used a Racial Slur In Front of You, and You ‘Said NOTHING’"
