These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
Contrary to the narrative of Donald Trump’s friends and foes alike, the phenomenon of “fake news” long precedes the 2016 presidential election, even if the moniker is of a fairly recent vintage. To deem an item reported by journalists a piece of “fake news” is not necessarily to say that it is patently
President Donald Trump’s signature speech in Warsaw last week celebrated Western accomplishments and Western values. As much as the Poles who heard it loved it, and as much as this second generation descendent of Polish immigrants did too, there was no doubt in my mind that the Left would despise what Trump had
You can’t have my country. You cannot take away anything that makes her her. She has stood proudly head and shoulders above others ever since her brilliant, bombastic founding.

In the ultimate display of irony-averse stupidity, Fraud News Network CNN threatened an American citizen on this fourth of July. The occasion was the now-infamous GIF tweeted out by President Trump, which shows Trump tackling and beating a wrestler on Wrestlemania. Except instead of showing the wrestler’s face, CNN’s corporate logo is substituted.
CNN Justifies the Meme (with apologies to Kipling’s “Arithmetic on the Frontier”) A great and glamorous thing it was, The media high ground to own— To set each debate’s terms, because Yours was the mightiest microphone— And your pronouncements carried weight. You squandered that, though. It’s too late. Much credibility you spent, Through
A couple of weeks ago in this space, I speculated that CNN, the Crackpot News Network, had reached the terminal stage of malevolent implausibility. “[I]t would be a good thing,” I wrote, “were CNN humiliated and sued out of existence. It performs no journalistic function, merely a destructively partisan one.” As usual, I
