Liberals: read why you should oppose the Senate immigration bill (New Republic) - 06/27/13

... American workers" by T. A. Frank at The New Republic. Check it out here. After reading it, come back here and leave a comment with your thoughts or concerns. TNR only lets subscribers leave comments, but anyone can leave comments here. While Frank supports some form of legalization and this site supports attrition, and he gives too much credence to studies rather than what people do [1], he does...

Michael Savage calls for "nationalist party" with a "charismatic leader"; globalists respond - 01/06/13

... Smith, and Alec MacGillis of The New Republic. And, the reason they're doing that is because the establishment supports globalism, and Savage's comments stand in opposition to the monetary interests of the elites. If those three or others in the same position came out against globalization, they'd soon find themselves out of a job. Over the past few decades, U.S. elites have sold out their...

The low level of Timothy Noah's reporting (TNR, GOP Convention) - 08/29/12

... Noah (formerly of Slate, now of The New Republic) writes ( "Pas Devant Les Enfants, Tampa: Puerto Rico Out Of U.S.?", peekURL.com/zSg8UAU ): Buzzfeed's Zeke Miller suggests it wasn't Latino-baiting, but rather a protest against some procedural disrespect toward primary candidate Rep. Ron Paul, R.-TX, who hasn't (and probably won't) endorse Mitt Romney. (Indeed, he's not even sure he'll vote for...

Nate Cohn of TNR misleads about Mitt Romney and Arizona - 06/16/12

Nate Cohn of The New Republic offers "Will Obama’s New Immigration Policy Help in November?" [1], a response to Obama in effect passing the DREAM Act by executive order: ...The next few weeks represent one of Obama’s best opportunities to consolidate the Latino vote. Even if Romney emerges unscathed from today’s news, the Supreme Court’s upcoming decision on Arizona’s controversial immigration...

DHS uses Giffords shooting to push loose borders political agenda (Jared Lee Loughner, American Renaissance) - 01/09/11

... thinking. David Greenberg of The New Republic links (link) to the article with the following, reaching a conclusion that even Jonsson was unwilling to make: Jared Lee Loughner, is reported to have admired Mein Kampf and claimed ties to the anti-Semitic hate group called American Renaissance. If he had claimed such ties, we certainly would have heard about it; Greenberg apparently can't read. 1/...

Jonathan Zasloff of UCLA wanted government to take Fox News off the air (+John Judis of TNR) - 07/20/10

... attend?” John Judis, a senior editor at the New Republic, came down on Zasloff’s side, the side of censorship. “Pre-Fox,” he wrote, “I’d say Scherer’s questions made sense as a question of principle. Now it is only tactical.” Jonathan Zasloff - a University of California at Los Angeles law professor - said in a posting to the "Journolist" mailing list that the federal government should take Fox...

Why Matt Corley of ThinkProgress is a lightweight (Marty Peretz Mexico comments) - 03/28/09

... which he calls Marty Peretz of the New Republic a "f***ing racist" for this post [1]: Well, I am extremely pessimistic about Mexican-American relations, not because the U.S. had done anything specifically wrong to our southern neighbor but because a (now not quite so) wealthy country has as its abutter a Latin society with all of its characteristic deficiencies: congenital corruption,...

Obama "Energy Czar" Carol Browner's membership in Socialist panel scrubbed from website, Wikipedia - 01/10/09

... using an IP address belonging to The New Republic; see this. Here's her biography as listed by the SI: Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency under President Bill Clinton. Leading the EPA from 1993 to 2001, she was the longest-serving Administrator in the agency’s history. Browner currently serves on the board of several non-profit organisations, including as chair...

Marin Cogan/TNR's massive Fairness Doctrine strawman - 11/20/08

Marin Cogan of the New Republic offers "Bum Rush/Obama's secret plan to muzzle talk radio. Very, very secret." (tnr.com/politics/story.html?id=68d07041-7dbc-451d-a18a-752567145610). The supposed "reporter-researcher" looks for evidence that the Democrats want to bring back the Fairness Doctrine and can't find it. She therefore concludes that the Democrats don't want to try to muzzle rightwing...

Michael Crowley/TNR falls for obvious hoax (source of Sarah Palin smears) - 11/10/08

The New Republic - home to a long series of reprehensible folks like James Kirchick and Jason Zengerle - has fallen for another hoax. This time around, Michael Crowley offers the post "Even More Palin Cluelessness" (blogs.tnr.com/tnr/blogs/the_stump/archive/2008/11/10/even-more-palin-cluelessness.aspx, via HotAir) about a supposed former McCain campaign advisor admitting that he was the source...

Barack Obama funded radical Afro-centric schools (Annenberg Challenge, Rev. Wright) - 10/14/08

Just a couple days ago, both Politfact and FactCheck told us that the Chicago Annenberg Challenge ("CAC") - as run by Barack Obama - was only involved in "mainstream" educational projects. Now, it turns out that CAC gave $200,000 to Chicago's Coalition for Improved Education in South Shore ("CIESS"). That ran the South Shore African Village Collaborative ("SSAVC"), which was a network of...

Washington Post: America's finest source for bad reporting (Palin "slashed" funds story) - 09/02/08

The Washington Post recently published a blog post about Sarah Palin (in their words) "slash[ing]" funds to a non-profit group. Except, what they got from the state of Alaska alone was over three times what they got from all government sources combined in 2006. Let's take a look at the WaPo's "downstream", the three-eyed fish who gobble up what the WaPo sludges out. First, there are several digg...

Eve Fairbanks misleads about Wikipedia (+Kevin Drum) - 04/15/08

... post from Eve Fairbanks [2] of the New Republic (also home to Jim Kirchik and Jason Zengerle). She discusses a subscriber-only National Review article (link) called "Liberal Web" which discusses liberal bias at WP, and says: while I hadn't perceived anti-conservative bias on Wikipedia's political pages, I wanted to see if [John J. Miller] had picked up on something I didn't. She then uses the...

Intellectually dishonest James Kirchick - 01/08/08

James Kirchick of the New Republic - home of the odious Jason Zengerle - offers "Angry White Man/The bigoted past of Ron Paul", an attempt by the Beltway establishment to sink his candidacy by revealing excerpts from his old newsletters. Apparently much or all of it was ghostwritten, and the campaign tries to portray him as a (per Kirchick) "naive, absentee overseer, with minimal knowledge of...

Does Jason Zengerle support American workers? - 11/04/05

The titular person contributes to a New Republic page called "The Plank", and he offers "If Ray Nagin bashes immigrants, does he make a sound?" (tnr.com/blog/theplank?pid=3290) That post links to the NYT article "In Louisiana, Worker Influx Causes Ill Will" (link). And, the post and the NYT article discuss the Nagin remark which was featured in NCLR, NUL, NAACP, AAJC, and LCCR confused over words...
