Based in North Carolina, Stacey Matthews is a former liberal and a 16+ year veteran of blogging with an emphasis on media bias, social issues, and the culture wars.

CNN's Jim Acosta is nothing if not predictable. In the middle of the Democratic party infighting caused by the anti-Semitic rhetoric we've heard from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) in recent weeks, Acosta saw fit not to question the comments themselves, but instead President Trump's grim assessment of the Democratic party's relationship with the Jewish community.

Former VP Joe Biden hasn't announced yet whether or not he'll jump in as a 2020 presidential candidate, but a growing number of voices are giving him some unsolicited advice: Don't. About a month ago, we learned via the McClatchy news outlet about over two dozen Democratic strategists whose opinions on a possible Biden run weren't exactly glowing. "Not his time" was a common theme among those interviewed.

Remember when the mainstream media sneered at President Trump's claims on how people allegedly being tied up, bound, and duct-taped women at the border? These outlets included CNN and The Washington Post. As it turns out, Trump was right. The media outlet going on the record to correct the "fact checkers" on this issue is the New York Times, the queen bee of liberal media outlets, and certainly no friend of the president's.

Remember the outcry over Rolling Stone magazine's appalling July 2013 cover feature on Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev? Apparently it didn't faze them, because they're out with another cover and feature story series that glamorizes two freshmen Congresswomen whose actions and/or associations with powerful anti-Semitic figures should be concerning to everyone.

A Wake County Superior Court judge in North Carolina has written a ruling so outlandish that state Democrats and Republicans, who are normally at each other's throats, have found themselves in rare agreement. The Raleigh News and Observer reports:
A judge has just thrown out two amendments to the North Carolina Constitution that voters approved in November.

We all remember how when George W. Bush was president he was ruthlessly treated by his political opposition. Senator Harry Reid (D-NV), in particular, stood second to no one in expressing his utter disdain and contempt for "43" every chance he got. But in an interview with CNN's Dana Bash that aired this week, the former leader of the US Senate is now singing a different tune:

The 2020 election campaign season is kicking into high gear, and a number of Democratic party hopefuls are jumping onto the reparations train. But it's one they may find could derail their aspirations for higher office.

What a difference going on groveling apology tours can make for Democrats. Results from two recent Virginia polls show that Gov. Ralph Northam and AG Mark Herring have managed to survive the blackface scandals that rocked the state earlier this month. The sexual assault allegations against Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, however, have divided the state on his fate.

While on a book tour last December, former VP Joe Biden told a group of people in Montana that he had given himself a two month window to decide on another possible presidential run while pointing out his bonafides. The Hill reported at the time:
While Biden hasn’t made a decision about the 2020 race, he is sounding increasingly like a presidential candidate. In Montana, Biden said he was “the most qualified person in the country to be president.”
