Image of the Day: Record One-Year Income Rise in 2019

From the U.S. Census Bureau, median household income rose by 6.8% in 2019 - a record one-year increase - to a record high of $68,700.  Notably, under the supposed racist President Donald Trump, those 2019 income gains were largest for minority groups.  And since 2016, median income has risen 9.7%, which is fantastic news for Americans, even if it might be bad news for leftists in their disinformation campaign:

61 NPR Admits: More Guns, Less Crime

When even people like John Kerry and Barack Obama pay no attention to National Public Radio (NPR), must taxpayers be forced to continue subsidizing it?  To its credit, this week NPR ran the following bombshell headline:  “The U.S. Has More Guns, but Russia Has More Murders.”  In other words, paraphrasing Dr. John Lott,…

62 Silence of the Media Lambs

Provided the opportunity on Wednesday to assert supposed powers as the “Fourth Estate,” the White House press corps instead acted like a football team on Fourth-and-Eight: It punted. Faced with the first chance, after more than two months, to grill Barack Obama about the tragedy in Benghazi, Libya, and related setbacks throughout North…

63 Media's One-Sided Coverage Is Clear Evidence Of Bias

The date was June 15, 1992. In an elementary school in Trenton, New Jersey, reading off a flash card that had been prepared by the teacher, the special guest counseled the child writing potato on the blackboard, "You're close, but you left a little something off. The 'e' on the end." The media reacted swiftly and relentlessly. The story…

64 The Sleaziest Campaign of All?

When the political Right runs accurate (or mostly accurate) ads about opposing political candidates – about Willie Horton, or from the “Swift Boat veterans”— the dominant media narrative becomes how sleazy and unfair conservatives are. But as we are seeing this year, while vicious and utterly inaccurate ads from the political…

65 What Aaron Sorkin Gets Wrong About America

Aaron Sorkin is something like the poet laureate of American television (though, in the debased world of American popular culture, that’s less of an honorific than it sounds). Sorkin, who has also scripted such films as A Few Good Men, The American President, The Social Network and Moneyball, is responsible for two of the most celebrated TV series…

66 Obama, the “Intellectual” Law Professor Who Doesn’t Understand the Supreme Court

Earlier this week, anticipating the potential for the Supreme Court to gut his signature health care law, President Obama preemptively lashed out at the nation’s highest legal institution, saying, “I’m confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented extraordinary [sic] step of overturning a law that was…

67 Robert Bales, Trayvon Martin and the Cult of Involuntary Martyrdom

Over the past few weeks, two stories of untimely deaths – one foreign and one domestic – have dominated the media landscape. The first is the shocking tale of Army Staff Sergeant Robert Bales, who, seemingly at random, snuck away in the dead of night from his base in Afghanistan to wreak havoc among the local population, ultimately murdering…

68 Keller, NYT: Blinkered Obama Love

Bill Keller should get real. The New York Times executive editor-turned-blathering columnist is singing the praises of Barack Obama’s “accomplishments” and “successes,” which is a lot like praising General Custer for his military prowess. Maybe it takes a failure to praise a failure, as the Keller defense of Obama…

69 The Lamestream Media’s Perpetual Bias Against Sarah Palin

You can tell a lot about someone based on the character of her enemies.  For conservatives, the clownish leftists obsessively deconstructing Sarah Palin’s every move and tweet serve as continual reminders that the Woman from Wasilla represents an incarnated assault on the liberal vision of “progress.”  That alone makes Palin…

70 In Praise of James O’Keefe

Some four decades ago, this writer and several of his journalist colleagues working for a now-forgotten magazine prepared to go to jail for refusing to reveal confidential sources regarding a criminal act about which we had published more than the authorities knew.  With a former Assistant U.S. Attorney as one of the magazine’s co-editors…

71 Today’s State-run Media Report, Courtesy of ABC/Obama News

Good Afternoon.  This is Charles Gibson reporting of, by and from the White House.  It’s been a really cool day here so far, and it’s going to get really cooler when we talk to President Obama about health care, later in the broadcast. We were going to open the broadcast with that, but today has been so really, really cool that…

Quote of the Day   
 
"President Trump, like President Obama in 2016, has the constitutional power to nominate a Supreme Court justice. He should exercise that power to put forward someone with a track record of respect for the law and for its limits on the judiciary. The Senate, as it did in 2016, will then have the power to decide whether to proceed. If the nominee meets threshold conditions of quality and judicial philosophy…[more]
