NY Times Makes Insane Claim About Soviets During The Space Race

The folks at the NY Times must be just plain miserable.

Published

So it’s beginning to seem like the folks over at the NY Times have some sort of strange infatuation with the oppressive Communist overlords from the Soviet Union, as they’re now, on the cusp of the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 moon landing, claiming that the Soviet Union actually won the space race.

How, exactly, did they do that? Through “equality.”

This, ladies and gentlemen, is just how much the left hates America.

Here’s Sophie Pinkham’s main argument:

The Cold War was fought as much on an ideological front as a military one, and the Soviet Union often emphasized the sexism and racism of its capitalist opponents — particularly the segregated United States. And the space race was a prime opportunity to signal the U.S.S.R.’s commitment to equality. After putting the first man in space in 1961, the Soviets went on to send the first woman, the first Asian man, and the first black man into orbit — all years before the Americans would follow suit.

Pinkham joins a long list of NYT writers who have glorified the excesses of the Soviet Union. In his – ironically – New York Times best-selling book, “Unfreedom of the Press,” LevinTV host Mark Levin exposed this long history, dating back to Walter Duranty and his propaganda about Stalin’s regime.

For nearly a century, the Times has lauded the murderous thugs who ran the Soviet Union and the system they employed. This week, as America celebrates one of her crowning achievements of the 20th century, the Times piles on again, this time by glorifying a few of the people the Soviet’s brutal regime didn’t kill for disagreeing with it.

How crazy is this? Apparently these folks are forgetting about how homosexuality is viewed in Russia to this day. It’s not tolerated at all. Yet they are supposedly a beacon for equality? Are you serious right now?

The mainstream media hates this country so much, they’ll do anything to cheapen its victories. How awful must it be to be this petty and hateful?

Pretty sad.

Save conservative media!

Sondland Says There Was a ‘Quid Pro Quo’ From Giuliani For White House Meeting

Published

on

During Wednesday’s impeachment hearing, Ambassador Gordon Sondland, a critically important witness due to his close contact with the president on Ukraine, testified in a front of a congressional committee and stated in his opening statement saying there was a indeed a quid pro quo presented by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine involving a White House meeting and call. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: He also repeated that he “came to believe” the release of U.S. military aide to Ukraine was connected to the investigations, suggesting that he was not told so by the president. “I know that members of this committee have frequently framed these complicated issues in the form of a simple question: Was there a ‘quid pro quo?’” Sondland said Wednesday. “With regard to the requested White House call and White House meeting, the answer is yes.” In his opening statement Wednesday, Sondland underscored six key points, beginning with the role of Giuliani, with whom he said was directed by the president to work. “First, Secretary [Rick] Perry, Ambassador [Kurt] Volker and I worked with Mr. Rudy Giuliani on Ukraine matters at the express direction of the President of the United States,” said Sondland. “We did not want to work with Mr. Giuliani. Simply put, we played the hand we were dealt. We all understood that if we refused to work with Mr. Giuliani, we would lose an important opportunity to cement relations between the United States and Ukraine. So we followed the President’s orders.” Sondland went on to make it clear other officials were not quite comfortable to work with Giuliani, but “did not believe his role was improper at the time.” “Second, although we disagreed with the need to involve Mr. Giuliani, we did not believe that his role was improper at the time.…

The GOP Looking To Subpoena Hunter Biden, Ukraine Whistleblower, And DNC Files

Published

on

The top member of the GOP sitting on the House Intelligence Committee crafted a letter and sent it to Chairman Adam Schiff asking that Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President and current presidential candidate Joe Biden, be subpoenaed, along with the whistleblower that kicked off this whole impeachment inquiry in the first place. Here’s more from Fox News: Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., along with Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, penned a scathing letter to Schiff in which they slammed the “sham ‘impeachment inquiry’” and notified the chairman of their intent to subpoena Biden and the whistleblower. Jordan, the ranking member of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, has been appointed as a temporary member of the House Intelligence Committee. “The American people understand how you have affirmatively prevented Republicans from examining serious issues directly relevant to the issues,” the two GOP lawmakers told Schiff in their letter. “Therefore, to provide some basic level of fairness and objectivity to your ‘impeachment inquiry,’ we intend to subpoena the anonymous whistleblower and Hunter Biden for sworn testimony in closed-door depositions.” Nunes and Jordan added that they plan to subpoena the whistleblower’s documents and communications regarding the complaint, the records surrounding Hunter Biden’s role on the board of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings and the Democratic National Committee’s communications with Ukrainian officials and records relating to Alexandra Chalupa. This letter is the second one to be sent from Nunes to Schiff, informing him of his intentions to call up the whistleblower and Hunter Biden. Earlier this month, Nunes sent out his first letter to Schiff about wanting to speak with those witnesses, however, it still remains to be seen how many of the individuals on the Republican Party’s list will actually be approved by Schiff. A resolution was recently passed that grants the…
