CNN Makes Most Perfect CNN

Tuesday was now former editor-at-large for CNBC John Harwood’s first day at CNN as a network White House correspondent. Less than a week after CNN complained that one of its reporters was called a “liberal hack,” CNN hired a liberal hack. (Snip)Harwood is a textbook example of a biased reporter masquerading around the nation’s capital as an “objective journalist,” on a noble quest to uncover the truth in clear and honest reporting in a media environment saturated with fake news. There is certainly no shortage of examples to illustrate Harwood’s left-wing bias, but then again, the list to showcase CNN’s runs even longer, making the pair a perfect fit.

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff appears to have mischaracterized a text message exchange between two players in the Ukraine saga, according to documents obtained by POLITICO — a possible error the GOP will likely criticize as another example of the Democrats’ rushed effort to impeach President Donald Trump. The issue arose when Schiff (D-Calif.) sent a letter to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.)(Snip) summarizing a trove of evidence from Lev Parnas, (Snip). In one section of the letter, Schiff claims that Parnas “continued to try to arrange a meeting with President Zelensky,” citing a specific text message exchange where Parnas tells Giuliani: “trying to get us mr Z.”

Joe Biden became visibly irate with a CBS reporter Ed O'Keefe after the newsman asked why the former vice president attacked Sen. Bernie Sanders this week. "Yesterday, you said you accepted Bernie's apology, now you're attacking him," said O'Keefe. "Why are you doing that? Why wasn't his apology enough Mr. Vice President? Why attack Sanders?" "Why, why, why, why, why, why, why?" asked Biden. "You're getting nervous, man. Calm down, it's okay! He apologized for saying I was corrupt, he didn't say anything about whether I was telling the truth about Social Security." Biden's frustration comes as a CNN poll found Bernie Sanders leading the 2020 Democratic presidential field.

Prince Charles demanded global green taxes as part of a radical push to tackle climate change in a seminal speech at Davos today. The Prince of Wales met Greta Thunberg at the Word Economic Forum after flying in to Switzerland on a private jet—but did not hold talks with Donald Trump. Charles even sounded like the 17-year-old Swedish activist as he asked VIPs: 'Do we want to go down in history as the people who didn't do anything to bring the world back from the brink? The only limit is our willingness to act and the time to act is now'.

To hear the media tell it, President Donald Trump “slammed” child climate activist Greta Thunberg during a press conference Wednesday at the World Economic Forum, which is taking place in Davos, Switzerland. To that end, the president commented on Thunberg making the cover of Time before him — in a political maneuver, the child activist was named Time Magazine’s ‘Person of the Year’ in 2019.In his opening address at the annual meeting, the president warned the assembly about the hysteria over climate change, saying alarmists are “radical socialists,” the Washington Examiner reported.

Sen. Mitt Romney brushed off Democrats for complaining about the Senate’s decision to follow trial rules similar to those used during President Bill Clinton’s impeachment. Romney, 72, the junior senator for Utah and 2012 Republican presidential nominee, has been one of the few Senate Republicans to question President Trump’s behavior in the events that led to impeachment, but he claimed that Democrats have taken their protests too far. While speaking to CNN on Monday, the Utah senator criticized his Democratic colleagues for opposing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's version of the impeachment trial rules that were used during Clinton’s impeachment.

She did so publicly, unambiguously, and with obvious malicious intent.”

On January 22, 1973, Americans woke up to a different republic. At the will of seven unelected justices, Roe v. Wade made dramatically expanded abortion access both the policy and the law for our entire country. The opinion was an alarm bell, a warning that the moral dimension of our country had been irrevocably altered and would continue to change unless something stopped it. Speaking conservatively, 61 million babies have since been killed under this regime.

SEATTLE - Seattle could see more tiny home villages pop up across the city. On Wednesday, City Council members will discuss a proposal to add dozens more sanctioned homeless encampments. The proposal would allow 40 sanctioned encampments, each having up to 100 residents. The city's legislation would exempt churches and religious groups from acquiring a land use permit, making it easier to set up the tiny home villages and run them.

Janis Joplin’s home state of Texas was like a cruel lover—at times it would build her up and fill her soul with music. Other times, it tore her down and took another little piece of her heart. A fascinating, deeply researched, and powerfully written new biography, Janis: Her Life and Music by Holly George-Warren shares the story of one of rock-and-roll’s most unforgettable voices. Beginning with an exploration of how the Lone Star State shaped Joplin’s music and life, the book follows her eventual move to California, her shooting-star rise, and her death at age 27 in 1970.
