Meghan McCain Involved in Ugly Media Mess with Seth Meyers

Meghan McCain has eloquently and elegantly escaped this train wreck of an interview with her wit and grit.

In these tense political times, there are both honorable antagonists and opportunistic ones, the latter of which seems to have permeated the entirety of the mainstream media.

This was by design, in many ways, as these entertainers must entertain in order to maintain their value to their handlers.  This is all driven by the plague-like consumerism and greed of the corporate world, and piped directly to screens in front of our faces 24/7, 365.

At times, the worlds of politics and mass media merge, and not always in a grand, graceful symbiosis, either.

Meghan McCain and “Late Night” host Seth Meyers butted heads on Wednesday morning’s show over McCain’s criticisms of Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, who has repeatedly been accused of anti-Semitism.

It escalated to the point where McCain asked the NBC host if he was Omar’s “publicist.”

Meyers brought up McCain’s commentary on ABC’s “This Week” following the deadly synagogue shooting at the Poway, Calif., last month where she invoked Omar’s tweets, and asserted that both Democrats and Republicans have to tackle anti-Semitism within their own parties.

Here’s where it gets wild:

“Were you bothered by her language on 9/11?” McCain asked.

“I thought it was taken out of context,” Meyers answered, “and I think if you watched that whole speech — ”

“Would you give President Trump the same leverage if he had said the same thing?” McCain challenged the NBC host. “I just think you have to give people the same credence.”

Meyers responded by saying President Trump was “in no position” to criticize Omar’s language on 9/11 based on his own language about 9/11. He also argued that Omar has apologized and promised to be more educated “by people who know about this” while the president hasn’t.

Meghan McCain has continually exuded a gritty determination to defend herself and her beliefs in the media minefield of today, exquisitely so on occasions such as this.

Billionaire David Koch Dies; How Leftists Respond Is Absolutely Appalling

This is horrible.

Published

on

Billionaire libertarian David Koch has passed away at the age of 79, and as you might expect, the liberal media had a lot to say about the man, none of it really any good. While we’re used to seeing the left trash folks on the right, especially when they die, the venom spit at Koch by liberals is appalling in every imaginable way. These people truly have no shame. via The Daily Wire: “David Koch was a villain who devoted his wealth to further enriching himself and his fellow plutocrats, while spinning us all toward environmental doom,” wrote Slate’s Jordan Weissmann. “I don’t believe in an afterlife, but if there is one, I hope his soul suffers for eternity.” “David Koch is dead. Forget the fawning obituaries: the man spent his life funding campaigns to dismantle unions, drive down wages, slash benefits and destroy the planet. He was a monument to the grotesque greed of the billionaire class — and why we need to defeat them,” wrote Tribune Magazine’s Ronan Burtenshaw. “I’m sure David Koch loved his grandkids or whatever, but the reality is that he and his greedy generation in Big Business and politics set the world on fire from Alaska to the Amazon, and now they won’t be around to watch the flames consume the rest of us,” tweeted Philadelphia Inquirer columnist Will Bunch. “David Koch wanted to abolish public schools, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and rent control,” said CNN commentator Keith Boykin. “He financed groups that denied the research on climate change. He funded the Tea Party. And he used dark money to support right-wing causes and Republican candidates for office. “Seeing lots of headlines about David Koch’s death referring to ‘billionaire’, ‘industrialist’ or ‘libertarian’ Koch,” wrote Mehdi Hasan, a columnist for The Intercept and Al Jazeera…

It Ain’t Over Yet: Special Prosecutor Appointed In Investigation Of Jussie Smollett

Let’s hope we get the truth soon.

Published

Just when you thought the Jussie Smollett investigation/case had completely fizzled out and nobody cared anymore, a judge from Chicago appointed a special prosecutor Friday morning to lead the investigation into how the case was handled. That’s right, y’all. It ain’t over until it’s over. Here’s The Daily Wire with details: Cook County Judge Michael Toomin appointed former U.S. Attorney Dan Webb to the position to investigate the way the case was handled — specifically, why the 16 criminal charges against Smollett were dropped and to potentially reinstate the charges or even add additional charges against Smollett. “Webb gained prominence for his lead role during the Operation Greylord investigations into judicial corruption in Cook County,” Fox 32 reported. “He served as special counsel in the Iran-Contra affair and was previously appointed by Judge Toomin in the death of David Koschman.” Webb told reporters on Friday: “I don’t know where this case is going. The facts will take me where they take me.” Toomin ruled that a special prosecutor was needed in the case because “Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx had no authority to hand [the case] off to her top deputy after announcing she recused herself,” CBS News Chicago reported. Foxx had been in contact with relatives of Smollett’s and was apparently approached by former first lady Michelle Obama’s chief of staff on behalf of the Smollett family. Obviously, that is a big no-no. Perhaps with this investigation we’ll all gain a little more insight into what actually happened and learn once and for all whether or not this whole attack was concocted as some sort of career boosting scheme Smollett or if it was for real. The evidence is certainly stacked against Smollett at this point in the case, but who knows what direction it could all take?
