New York Times Editorial Board Flunks Geography
The degree to which the liberal establishment is terrified of the coming political Armageddon is on full display in today’s New York Times.

For instance: Start with immigration, and the idea that any president could or | Read More »

The New York Times’ Racist Attack on Clarence Thomas
It is interesting that a major newspaper would so blatantly call out the only black man on the Supreme Court for borrowing language in briefings. He is by far not the only one, and his average rate of language borrowed from briefings is not that much different from his peers. Over the years, the average rate of nearly identical language between a party’s brief and the | Read More »

Bum Fight!! New York Times and POLITICO duke it out over a bottle of Night Train
The honeymoon is over. The bloom is off the rose. The cold light of dawn has arrived. The heady romance is now headed for divorce court.

Marco Rubio, Commoner
Fresh off their shocking revelation that Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 92% drives himself around like some peasant, getting speeding tickets in the process, the NYT is back at it again.

No, Christianity is Not Actually in Decline
The New York Times has a breathless report on the decline of Christianity in America. Much of the lefty twitterverse is celebrating the decline. The Christian share of adults in the United States has declined sharply since 2007, affecting nearly all major Christian traditions and denominations, and crossing age, race and region, according to an extensive survey by the Pew Research Center.
