This Altercation in Texas Exposes the Heart of Fake News

“Fake news” has become a widespread accusation, but what does it actually mean? Is it something that’s been invented out of whole cloth, like H.G. Wells’ planetary invaders? Different definitions abound, but I submit that fake news, at its core, is reporting in which the journalist selectively chooses and ignores facts, and interprets or paraphrases those facts to reach an unwarranted conclusion that conveniently validates his own views. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); It goes to the heart of how many reporters see their job these days. Readers may have seen the recent “news” about a physical fracas on the floor of the Texas House of Representatives, which reported that Republican Rep. Matt Rinaldi confronted a Democrat and engaged in aggressive verbal back-and-forth. The report said the altercation came to a climax when Rinaldi said, “I’ll … Read entire article »

House Conservatives Ready to ‘Go Big’ on Tax Reform That Includes Welfare Reform

The House Freedom Caucus wants to “go big” on a tax reform package to include welfare reforms, but likely wouldn’t include a tax on imports, or a border adjustment tax. “There is not consensus for the border adjustment tax,” Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., said Friday during a panel of four House Freedom Caucus members at The Heritage Foundation. “The sooner we acknowledge that and get on with a plan that actually works and actually can build consensus, the better off we will be.” House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Texas, has proposed the border adjustment tax as part of a broader tax proposal. The border adjustment tax would slap a levy on imported goods into the United States, but make exported goods tax-free, a move viewed in part by supporters … Read entire article »

Kellyanne Conway Reveals the ‘Biggest Misconception’ About the Trump White House

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway was ready to bust some myths about the Trump White House in remarks Friday at the Road to Majority Conference. “What is [President Donald Trump] like in private?” asked Ralph Reed, founder and chairman of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, addressing Conway. “Does he listen to advice?” he added. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); “The biggest misconception … is that Donald Trump doesn’t have anyone around him that will tell him ‘no,’” responded Conway. Rather, she added, Trump listens so intently that “he remembers everything,“ even to the point that “it always comes back” to get you. She commented on how, just as many within Trump Tower have reported, Trump is a “fully aware, gracious, [and] understanding boss.” Conway mentioned that Trump would, during both the campaign and now in the … Read entire article »

Bernie Sanders Shows the Left’s Refusal to Coexist With Traditional Believers

Religious tests for holding public office are banned in the Constitution and go against the very core of the American tradition. But you wouldn’t have learned that listening Wednesday to Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., as he questioned Russ Vought, the nominee for deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget. His questioning of Vought was nothing less than theological interrogation, and in the end, excoriation. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Here’s what unfolded when Sanders took the mic. In a disjointed line of questioning that had nothing to do with budgetary issues, Sanders veered into the theology of salvation, singling out an article Vought had written for a conservative publication in 2015 that outlined basic Christian doctrine about God in contrast to the Islamic view. Here’s the heart of the exchange (transcript courtesy David French … Read entire article »

After Election Upset, Britain Will Keep Calm and Carry On

In a huge political upset, Britain’s Conservative Party has failed to secure an overall majority, falling just short of the 326 seats needed in the 650-seat House of Commons. Prime Minister Theresa May will now lead a minority government. The Conservatives will rely on the support of Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party to remain in power, who won 10 seats. It is conceivable that another general election could be held in the coming months if the Conservatives are unable to drive legislation forward. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); While the Conservatives lost seats, British voters did however reject the idea of a far-left Labour government, with the socialist emphasis on big spending, increased taxes, and heavy state intervention. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, an admirer of Karl Marx whose shadow Cabinet includes former communists, was viewed … Read entire article »
