Camille Paglia: Democrats are colluding
with the media to create chaos

Washington Examiner, by Emily Jashinsky

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 5/19/2017 8:49:47 AM

Camille Paglia is much more worried about the media than about the steady string of Trump-related scandals they claim to be uncovering. In a Tuesday interview with the Washington Examiner, Paglia excoriated the press for its coverage of Trump´s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey and his alleged sharing of classified information with Russian officials. Fresh off a spirited panel with Christina Hoff Sommers hosted by the Independent Women´s Forum, the iconic feminist dissident, who serves as a professor of media studies at the University of the Arts, accused journalists of colluding with the Democratic Party in an effort to damage

I can´t believe it!
A liberal with common sense.
She is the Only intellectually honest liberal I know of.
She is a lesbian that does not believe in special rights for gays. She also understands how bad Hillary is.
She is not PC.
She is the only liberal I could stand to be in the same room with.

"...steady string of Trump scandals..." Really? Scandals? Disgusting liars. Always trying to shape the narrative against Trump.

Paglia is an honest liberal. Evidently she is the exception that proves the rule.

#@, her and Dershowitz, that is pretty much it for liberals with any honesty or honor.

The rest of them are a gang of filty, lying, honorless, hate-filled hysterical thugs.

I think it is the opposite. The Democrats are merely useful idiots for the media that is trying to create chaos. Just who in the Democrat party is capable of leading this ...Waters, Warren, Schumer, Johnson, Pelosi??? Give me a break! No, it will be fascinating to eventually discover who, indeed, is orchestrating this coup...it is obviously a very elite, small group...perhaps not even Anericans. The pattern, the timing, the game plan is too obvious for it to be a grassroots movement by some idealistic journalists who are too lazy, too gullible and too weak to do this on their own.

FTA: "But the point is I feel that the media has so utterly lost its credibility that I think people are going to vote against the media again." You nailed it Ms. Paglia. Watching the un-elected smug ignorant mis-guided media go after President Trump everyday makes me furious. Especially given the disgraceful fawning, the infinite number of free passes given by the same media to Obama.

Exactly why my family and I are turned off and no longer watching the news. Not interested. We elected President Trump to do the job we hired him for. To the best of our knowledge, he is giving his all to do just that and the democrats and the media are doing everything they can to impede him and to bring down this nation even though we hold the majorities in the congress & senate and we have the White House. We will never save the nation at this rate.

Camille will soon (I Hope) be having drinks and dinner with Ann Coulter. I love them both and respect their world views.

Camille must suffer greatly trying to defend the positions of her compadres who care nothing for logic and truth.

She´s like a ´Reformed´ Jew who:

1-Loves Israel

2-Hates Israel

3-Worries about the long-suffering Palis.

Camille is a thorn in the side of the Left who brook no honest debate about ANYTHING.

I earned a BFA at what is now the University of the Arts in 1975. Back then it was Philadelphia College of Art. Of course, Paglia was not teaching there at the time. If she had been I would have attended every one of her classes.

Believe it or not, there are artists who are very conservative - we´re not all left wing wackos.

Trump Takes Page From
Bill Clinton Crisis Playbook

President Trump fancies himself an innovator, but his political playbook to try to dig out of scandal quicksand owes a lot to the 42nd president. On Thursday, Trump aped defense techniques used during Bill Clinton’s impeachment saga (with the added twists of a Republican complaining in 2017 about a vast left-wing conspiracy via social media that didn’t exist in the late 1990s). In three formats -- Twitter, a roundtable session with TV anchors, and an afternoon joint news conference -- the president repeated his belief that the special counsel appointed by the deputy attorney general on Wednesday, plus ongoing FBI and congressional

There’s something about the very existence of a large government-run crematorium just outside the once-civilized Syrian capital of Damascus that is enough to send shivers through the conscience of the civilized world. Yesterday the U.S. State Department confirmed that such a thing exists, and that it has been used to dispose of the bodies of an estimated 50 prisoners a day, hanged at the nearby Saydnaya military prison. “We believe that the building of a crematorium is an effort to cover up the extent of mass murders taking place,” said Stuart Jones, acting assistant secretary for Near Eastern Affairs.

Schumer´s effort to cripple Trump

Sen. Chuck Schumer is trying to sabotage the Trump administration, at the expense of the country. The obvious retort, that President Trump is doing a lot to sabotage himself, isn´t wrong. But that doesn´t justify the extraordinary depths of the minority leader´s partisan irresponsibility. Schumer says he will try to block a new director of the FBI until Trump appoints a special counsel to investigate Russia´s meddling in the 2016 election. It´s obvious what Schumer sees to gain from this effort. It pleases the liberal base and serves Schumer´s broader purpose of crippling an administration, making it ineffective, and then reaping the electoral

Democratic Road Rage

Where do you draw the line between the right of voters to vent their anger at public officials whose policies they oppose and actual violence? The answer is pretty obvious: at the point where verbal abuse turns to action that puts the safety of the officials in danger. That line was crossed earlier this month when a Tennessee woman began chasing Representative David Kustoff as he drove away from an appearance. Fearing for his safety as the woman tried to force his car off the road, the GOP congressman pulled off and was then confronted by 35-year-old Wendi Wright, who

Why Are Democrats Afraid of

Last Thursday, President Trump announced the formation of a bipartisan commission to investigate voter irregularities and fraud as well as charges of voter suppression in America. The hysterical criticism of his move lays bare the ideological conflict of visions raging over efforts to improve our election systems. Britain’s Guardian newspaper declared the notion of a commission “a white power grab” designed to reduce minority voter turnout. It said that appointing Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach to be vice chairman of a group examining election integrity was “like Hitler asking Goebbels to help put out the Reichstag fire.”

Why First-Born Children Are Better Leaders

The concept of a “born leader” seems so fanciful and clichéd that it belongs on the cover of a bad business book, or in a quote from a glib cable news commentator. But it turns out that born leaders are real, and researchers have discovered a key variable that isn’t genes, parents, or peers. It’s birth order. First-born children are 30 percent more likely to be CEOs or politicians, according to a new paper by several economists, Sandra E. Black at the University of Texas-Austin, and Bjo¨rn O¨ckert and Erik Gro¨nqvist at Sweden´s Institute for Evaluation of Labour Market and Education

One of the most dramatic moments in then-FBI Director James Comey´s May 3 appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee came when Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal tried to press Comey into revealing that President Trump is a target of the FBI´s Russia investigation. "You have confirmed, I believe, that the FBI is investigating potential ties between Trump associates and the Russian interference in the 2016 campaign, correct?" Blumenthal asked the director. "Yes," said Comey. "And have not, to my knowledge, ruled out anyone in the Trump campaign as potentially a target of that criminal investigation, correct?"

As Senate Republicans prepare for their turn in the health-care meat grinder, it increasingly appears that the question of preexisting conditions will be toughest to address. This is an issue so fraught with emotion as to cry out for some straight talk. First, let’s be clear about whom we’re talking about when the conversation turns to preexisting conditions: people who are already sick or at high risk of becoming sick. Insurance is — or should be — about managing risk. We buy coverage to protect us against events that are unlikely to happen but would carry a catastrophic cost if

Now, Hillary Clinton, having failed to win the White House in 2016, is currently on an “I’m owed an apology” tour.

Hillary Clinton says that she "beat" Donald Trump—and Bernie Sanders—in a lengthy feature article by New York Magazine. "I beat both of them," she said, evidently referencing her popular vote win over Trump. While Clinton did defeat Sanders, who is not a Democrat, in the Democratic primary, she did not defeat Trump, who was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States in January. In the story, Clinton discussed her post-election status as a member of the "Resistance" to Trump, but she also reflected on the 2016 campaign, which included a harder-than-expected fight against Sanders for the nomination.

WASHINGTON — Shortly after President Trump took office, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, met privately with his colleagues to discuss the Republican agenda. Repealing the Affordable Care Act was at the top, he said. But replacing it would be really hard. Mr. McConnell was right. The many meetings Republicans held to discuss a Senate health care bill have exposed deep fissures within the party that are almost as large as the differences between Republicans and Democrats. Elements of a bill that passed the House this month have divided Republicans. Mr. McConnell faces an increasingly onerous math problem.

New revelations have surfaced that the Obama administration abused intelligence during the election by launching a massive domestic-spy campaign that included snooping on Trump officials. The irony is mind-boggling: Targeting political opposition is long a technique of police states like Russia, which Team Obama has loudly condemned for allegedly using its own intelligence agencies to hack into our election. The revelations, as well as testimony this week from former Obama intel officials, show the extent to which the Obama administration politicized and weaponized intelligence against Americans. Thanks to Circa News, we now know the National Security Agency under President Barack Obama routinely violated

It’s pile-on time for America’s commercial airlines. The contempt people hold for them has long been severe, but following a raft of highly publicized incidents, resentment has hit a fever pitch. It started about a month ago, with the forced removal of a passenger onboard a United Express flight. This was followed by several more airlines-behaving-badly controversies, up to and including the death of Simon, a giant rabbit who perished after a London-to-Chicago United flight. Over and over we are reminded about the hellishness that is commercial flying. Enabled by cellphone cameras and the catalyst of social media, even the most
