He needed more makeup to look less like Emperor Palpatine, and launching by video always feels like a cop out. But Joe Biden nailed the message he needed to cement his front-runner status in the 2020 primary: This isn't a question of politics, but...
Tiana LoweHe needed more makeup to look less like Palpatine, & video always feels like a cop out. But Biden nailed the message he needed to cement his front-runner status in the 2020 primary: This isn't a question of politics, but the battle for America's soul.
Tiana LoweBiden came out of the gate with the distinction Hillary made until it was too late: The alt-right is a cancer on, not a feature of, conservatism & the country. Biden understands that America, even when we've failed to live up to them, is a nation of ideas.
The U.S. cannot fix its debt problem by taxing the rich, or cutting defense spending, nor through the magical trickery of Modern Monetary Theory. And both political parties refuse to admit this cold, hard truth: only slashing entitlements can save...
Tiana LoweHere's 1,000 words on why cutting entitlement spending is the *only* way to save us from our impending national debt crisis.
More than two decades after the first national nightmare of a school shooting at Columbine, the media has raised a generation of children whose trauma has been strutted out and weaponized for political expedience.
Tiana LoweCable news dragging kids into public instead of letting them process their trauma + an inept school district + social media & the Werther effect = a perfect storm for a mental-health crisis at Parkland.
I regret to inform you that 2020 hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., is out with a "Game of Thrones" take at the Cut. It is every bit as bad as you'd expect.
Tiana LoweWarren would replace the female ruler, who overcame a literal patriarchy to become queen by right of conquest, with an inbred, deposed princess who considers herself the rightful ruler of a country she's never lived in by right of agnatic primogeniture.
Special counsel Robert Mueller may not have found any evidence that President Trump or any of his associates conspired to collude or cooperated with the Russian government's attempts to interfere with our 2016 election. But for all intents and...
Tiana LowePaul Manafort coordinated with Konstantin Kilimnik, who's tied to Russian intelligence, to craft a pro-Russian plan for Ukraine, which he planned, without Trump's knowledge or consent, to enact during his presidency.
He was a Manchurian campaign chairman.
Talia Lavin's clown nose-on, clown nose-off routine is becoming tiresome. And nowhere was her hypocrisy been on full display more than in her hackneyed hit-job against Ben Shapiro in the pages of the Washington Post.
Tiana LoweTalia Lavin oscillates between demanding the authority of the Washington Post to smear @benshapiro & then claiming that she's just a widdle 29-year-old who shouldn't be publicly scrutinized by the press & cable news. The clown nose on-&-off routine is old.
Tiana LoweThe Talia Lavin playbook:
1. Issue baseless smear.
2. Pretend to be a victim instead of a public figure when called out for her lies.
3. Double down in a tantrum while her allies try to grant her cover.
She did it with that vet and now with @benshapiro.
It's too early to say what the fate of the cathedral will be, but if history serves as any indication, France's kilometer zero will survive.
Tiana Lowe"I'm not Catholic, but it was impossible to walk around the cathedral and search for hope without feeling the presence of God."
800 words on Notre Dame, fortitude, faith, history, and a few moments of my late adolescence. I'm heartbroken but hopeful.
The media and the Democrats worked overtime to convince roughly four out of five Americans that the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act would actually raise their taxes. That campaign is now bearing fruit on Tax Day 2019, just one in three Americans approve...
Tiana LoweDue to the time value of money & inflation, whatever amount of taxes the gov't eventually refunds to people is effectively an interest-free loan previously seized from taxpayers. The bigger your refund each year, the more the gov't stole from you.
Relations between WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange and the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, which housed him, deteriorated over the past few months. Meanwhile, Vladimir Putin acolytes began to warn that any American indictment of Assange would provide...
Tiana LoweNot one line of the indictment insinuates that Assange's legal troubles stem simply from posting classified material. Rather, the whole case is based on his actively participating in computer fraud.
There's a quotation you're going to want to commit to memory for the next two years. It may be the single greatest piece of ammunition against the socialist wing of the Democratic Party, and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., himself gave it to us.
Tiana LoweBernie has spent his entire career vilifying job creators and the capitalist system solely responsible for the single great economic expansion and elimination of poverty in human history. And he became a millionaire as a result of it.
The brutality about to unfold in Brunei ought to serve as a wake-up call to the West.
Tiana LoweAs of today, the Sultan of Brunei, a multibillionaire who throws sex parties with harems of underage girls, has made gay sex punishable by death by stoning. Trump must listen to Ric Grenell & push for the worldwide decriminalization of homosexuality.
I would be remiss if I let the day pass without challenging my colleague Eddie Scarry. Earlier today, he defended right-wing writer Denise McAllister — formerly of the Federalist and the Daily Wire, from both of which she's since been fired — for a...
Tiana Lowe.@McAllisterDen's public meltdown was indefensible & homophobic. You know what's a great clue that she's a raging, bigoted, and vicious homophobe? Her own words, effectively an attempt to shame gay people into thinking that they are less than human.
Tiana LoweI didn't want to add more attention to whatever breakdown McAllister is clearly having, but no mental health crisis is an excuse for the dehumanizing homophobia she levied at @yashar this weekend. My colleague @eScarry is incorrect.
Jussie Smollett is nominated for an NAACP Image Award this weekend. Host Anthony Anderson says he hopes the disgraced "Empire" actor wins.
Tiana LoweThis is toxic. I never boycott shows for artists' political leanings, but endorsing a man who orchestrated a hate crime hoax, diverted hundreds of thousands of dollars from law enforcement, & is now willing to let 2 innocent black men take the fall is evil usatoday.com/story/life/peo…pic.twitter.com/zZdh7S1Dox
One of them is a Rhodes scholar and former Navy lieutenant who served in Afghanistan, graduated magna cum laude from Harvard, speaks eight languages, and references Faulkner offhand with as much ease as he does Eminem.
Tiana LoweOne is a Rhodes scholar & former Navy lieutenant who served in Afghanistan, graduated magna cum laude from Harvard, speaks eight languages, & references Faulkner offhand with as much ease as he does Eminem.
The other is an unemployed trust fund baby.
Apparently the only people on the planet to buy Jussie Smollett's continued assertion that he was in fact the victim of a hate crime are the guardians of truth in the media.
Tiana Lowe@brianstelter@Heminator The time is ripe for a media reckoning. A free society requires a robust Fourth Estate to check the privileged and the powerful. Instead, journalists equivocate and cower to a hate crime hoaxer and his cronies in the Cook County State's Attorney office.
Amid Hollywood's aggressive campaign to cover up for alleged hate crime hoaxer Jussie Smollett is a simple fact. Even if the actor and noted liar checks off a laundry list of intersectional check boxes, he's still a powerful celebrity. If we want to...
Tiana Lowe"This is a whitewash of justice." -Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel on prosecutors dropping the case against Jussie Smollett after the police department spent months dedicating resources to building a case. Bravo.
Tiana Lowe@brianstelter@Heminator No, Brian, I was not there that night. But like you, I'm making a determination as a journalist, and the facts, from the video recordings & checks to Smollett's shifting story, overwhelmingly indicate that he lied & had Kim Foxx run interference for him.
When the Democratic Party faced a revolt from its ranks for daring to propose condemning anti-Semitism, the scene gave those of us in Britain deja vu. The American Left is following the same script that led to the rapid radicalization of the Labour...
American romance has evidently degraded to the point that the new king of suburban hearts is none other than an unemployed trust fund baby who is resolving a midlife crisis by running for president.
Tiana LoweWhat's the media's spin on a guy who got a DWI while on a booty call? To do a fawning profile on his marriage, including the fact that he STUCK POOP IN A BOWL and told his wife it was an avocado as a supposedly charming detail in their relationship.
