Stephen Moore’s Columns Deriding Women Raise New Questions for Trump Fed Pick

Republican senators have shown less tolerance for such sentiments from some of Mr. Trump’s nominees than they have from the president himself. If they were so oppressed and offended by drunken, lustful frat boys, why is it that on Friday nights they showed up in droves in tight skirts to the keg parties?” In the piece, Mr. Moore counseled parents against sending their daughters to schools that devote resources to women’s studies and black history programs. “The crisis in America today isn’t about women’s wages; it’s about men’s wages,” he wrote. Mr. Kavanaugh disputed the claims and denied he ever assaulted her, rallying Republican senators to his defense. “I was so honored when I got the call from Donald Trump,” Mr. Moore said on the radio program. “He has no business making monetary and regulatory policy that will impact the lives of people across the country.” Some Capitol Hill Republican aides said this week that Mr. Moore’s writings about women could hurt his chances with female Republican senators and vulnerable incumbents running for re-election next year. Several emails to press offices for Republican senators asking about support for Mr. Moore went unanswered on Tuesday. The White House has also stayed largely quiet about Mr. Moore, other than to say he is undergoing a background check. “He said to me about two or three years ago something that I thought was very good advice for people who run companies,” Mr. Moore said, “and this is very good advice, is that I would never have a meeting with a woman without someone else in the room. “She sticks her finger in her mouth and zooms off and Steve is left screaming at the kids: ‘How many times do I have to tell you tyrants to stay out of sight when I’m hitting on girls?’ And then Will, with a puzzled look on his face says, ‘but daddy, we already have a mommy.’ And then Steve says, ‘Yes, but imagine, just for a moment, how nice it would be if you had a much younger mommy.’” On Tuesday, a reporter asked a White House spokesman if Mr. Trump had spoken with Mr. Moore and still had confidence in his possible nomination.

Counter-extremism expert says media, politicians should identify attacks in Sri Lanka for what they...

The founder of a London-based think tank that focuses on counter-extremism criticized media outlets and prominent political figures for not being forthright about this past Sunday's suicide bombings in Sri Lanka aimed at Christians. Six suicide bombings were orchestrated by Jihadi extremists against Sri Lanka's Christian community killing over 300 people. The media and prominent political figures went out of their way to downplay the religious aspects of the attacks prompting criticism, host Tucker Carlson said. "They have been unable to name Islamist extremism by name and jihadist terrorism being a violent manifestation because they genuinely believe that a bigger threat due to their political perspective is white supremacist and far-right extremism and then, of course, there's the pragmatic political side of things. They are pandering to a certain vote base and they fear by naming these things even if they wanted to, it would cause them trouble with their base and that's not how I operate and that's not how I think any decent human being should operate," Maajid Nawaz, founder of Quilliam said on "Tucker Carlson Tonight." "What happened in New Zealand was a white supremacist terrorist attack and what's happened in Sri Lanka is a jihadist terrorist attack and it moves us all to speak plainly about this so we can address these problems." Former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tweeted their condolences Sunday to Sri Lanka but made it a point to avoid calling the victims Christians, instead calling them "Easter worshippers." The Washington Post published an analytical piece Monday entitled "Christianity under attack? Nawaz lamented the political angles being played during tragedy. "I think sadly too many people play politics with tragedy and they allow for their own framework of their own bias to influence how they view human tragedy and then they use that to peddle their own political narrative," Nawaz said.

The New Republic’s May Issue Delivers No-Holds-Barred Commentary on Political Landscape

New York, NY—(April 18, 2019)—The New Republic today published its May 2019 issue, which features a cover story by Liza Mundy, “Women of Substance.” Mundy profiles the current six female Democratic presidential candidates — a historic number — in the 2020 race, four of whom have “a plausible shot at the U.S. presidency.” She outlines the challenges and advantages the women will face, particularly as they relate to stereotypes about women’s nature, their ability to lead, and their ambition to do so. In the post-Hillary Clinton period, Mundy makes the argument that “because they are not Hillary, this group will present a purer test of how voters and members of the chattering classes react to women ... between women whose backgrounds, careers, and accomplishments have nothing to do with their husbands.” She continues: “The upshot will be to encourage the healthy idea that women can be as bold, eloquent, original, irritated, aggressive, vacuous, and vague as men. This is progress.” The New Republic’s May issue also features timely pieces regarding the potential limits of feminist politics, “moderate” health reform, Jerry Nadler’s quest for presidential accountability, and further commentary on today’s political media landscape, with pieces that focus on MSNBC and Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. Highlights from the issue include: Looking at the female presence in the 2020 presidential race through another analytical lens, Abi Wilkinson’s “Empowerment for What” complicates the feminist idea that “because it’s bad that there are additional struggles for women in politics, it’s by definition good for women in politics to succeed. When a woman obtains high office, that candidate’s ascension marks a victory for women as a whole.” Wilkinson warns against acting on this principle in a vacuum — using female British leaders as examples — instead pointing out the many factors that should also be considered when electing leadership. It would be a wonderful, historic thing to elect a female president, “but what really matters is that president’s platform.” 2020 Democrats are lending their support to “moderate” health reforms, including Medicare for America, a popular public option policy that blends public and private sectors. In “Code Green,” Amber A’Lee Frost analyzes how a comparable system already exists in the Republic of Ireland, where it’s created a crisis of care. Frost argues a similar program would create a similar problem in the U.S.: “[The crisis is] the direct result of a health care system that tries to supplement a public service with a private market. For Res Publica, Jason Frederick Lambacher argues that to succeed the Green New Deal needs people arguing about it in “The Good Fight.” The entire May 2019 issue of The New Republic is available on newsstands and via digital subscription now. * * * Press: newrepublic@high10media.com ###

Tucker Carlson: What Happens When You Can No Longer Denounce Political Opponents As Russian...

But first tonight, attorney general William Barr has finally confirmed what has been obvious for months: The Obama administration spied on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. Yes, I think spying did occur. There’s no disputing Barr’s first point: Spying on a presidential campaign is a big deal, especially when it was authorized by a rival administration. Imagine if, a year from now, the Trump administration allowed the FBI to surveil officials in the Kamala Harris for president campaign. She called Barr “Trump’s toad.” CNN, meanwhile, assured it’s viewers that there is “little evidence” that spying occurred. This is all spying. When Trump complained about it, Democrats and their employees in the media called him a liar: ADAM SCHIFF: there is no evidence to support any allegation that the FBI or any intelligence agency placed a spy in the trump campaign DON LEMON: His baseless claims of spies. Jim Clapper was: JOY BEHAR: Was the FBI spying on Trump's campaign? The Obama administration wasn’t spying. There’s got to be a limit to how much lying a country can take from its leaders.
