Fox News, the satellite television news channel, has relinquished every pretense of “fair and balanced” reporting to purposely destroy Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. The cable “news” giant now bashes Trump or features Trump haters 24/7.

Last night on Fox Faux News’ Kelly File, Rich Lowry, editor of the conservative neoconservative National Review Peeyew magazine, told host Megyn “Me-Womyn” Kelly “that last debate … Carly [Fiorina] cut his [Donald Trump] balls off with the precision of a surgeon and he knows it.”

Lowry has never, nor would he ever, make such a crude comment or use such vulgar language on a talking-head news show to describe what happened to Hussein I (peace be upon him), Hillary Clinton, or any Democrat during a nationally-televised primary debate.

Lowry’s contemptible remarks regarding Trump are far more damaging to the Republican Party and its conservative wing than are the combined attacks from the left-leaning pundits at CNN, MSNBC, and the alphabet networks.

Unlike low-life Lowry, the networks’ left-leaning pundits will never brutally attack a Democrat presidential candidate with significant base support. And on those rare occasions when they do criticize a Democrat presidential candidate, they are careful not to offend and alienate the base constituents who support that candidate.

Lowry’s impudence and girly-man male qualities make testosterone-challenged dweebs the likes of Byron York and George Will look masculine by comparison.

If NR Publisher‎, ‎Jack Fowler, had Trump’s balls, which are allegedly missing due to Fiorina’s surgical skills, he would fire the rumpswab Lowry so fast that his pointy little head would spin.

Incidentally, Chris Salcedo, political pundit from the Blaze Blasé Radio Network, joined Lowry as Kelly’s other “Trump-bashing” guest. His school-girl giggling at Lowry’s remarks brought to mind Anderson Vanderbilt-Cooper’s hysterics on CNN.

Perky Katie Couric separately interviewed both Carly Fiorina and Ted Cruz about global cooling-warming/climate change, and the contrast is striking.

Ted Cruz and Carly Fiorina

Ted Cruz and Carly Fiorina

Couric began questioning Ted Cruz with the statement, “97% of scientists agree that global warming is manmade.”

Cruz responded saying that the “97% of scientists” claim is based on a discredited study and that there hasn’t been any global warming in 17 years. “It’s not happening,” Cruz said.

Then Cruz talked about how the media pushed “Global Cooling” on us in the 1970’s, and whether it’s global cooling or global warming, the basic motive behind it is always the same: about increased government control of the economy. And then Cruz said that liberals changed the name to “climate change”, so they could always claim there was a problem regardless of whether it got hotter or colder. Cruz further said that the Democrats are abandoning union workers in favor of environmentalists, creating an opening for Republicans.

So Cruz started with a question meant to put him on the defensive, and turned it around to (a) disprove global warming (b) explain how it is scam used by the government to control us and (c) turn it into an opening to attract union voters. And he did it with a manner that was gentle and friendly and smart. …

When Couric asked Carly Fiorina if she thought man-made global warming was a problem, her response was quite telling:

[Fiorina] hemmed and hawed … that it wasn’t a problem compared to fighting ISIS and other issues, but didn’t want to answer the basic question. She also said that “a single nation acting [alone can make no difference at all]….” She says we have to focus on innovation, like clean coal. But she doesn’t answer the basic question until finally at the end, when asked for the fourth or fifth time, Carly admits that “climate change” is real [issue], just not as important as other issues.

Carly’s interview was bad for several reasons. First, she looked evasive on answering the basic, simple question of whether man-made climate change is real, and she looked evasive because she was evasive. Not good. Secondly, she got the answer wrong. As we all know, there has been no global warming for 17 or 18 years. Thirdly, while she correctly stated that the US could not solve the “problem” alone, she bought into the Left’s argument that there is a problem. She accepted the premise of their argument, and once she does that, she operates on the defensive. (Emphasis mine) After watching that interview a low-information voter might think “Well, even Republicans agree it’s real, now I have to figure out who is better on this issue.”

The neo-conservative National Review praised Fioria‘s global-warming answers in her interview with Couric.

Quin Hillyer’s “Legislative auditor misses Common Core’s problems” is a damning piece about Common Core. According to Hillyer, support among teachers for the new standards tanked 30 percent in one year, from 76 percent to 46 percent.

In the piece, Hillyer points out several problems with the new academic standards:

Stories are legion, and incontrovertible, of students in Core-centric classes being given low grades for right answers — all because the students couldn’t show the required dots, lines, squares, cubes or folded-paper cutouts to explain how they figured that 6 is half of 12.

Here’s how the Core’s own document describes it … “Mathematically proficient students who can apply what they know are comfortable making assumptions and approximations to simplify a complicated situation, realizing that these may need revision later.”

That’s exactly what Core math is all about: justifying reasoning (or a first-grader’s guesswork), rather than necessarily arriving at the correct answer.

With its stress on endless process rather than results, Common Core actually slows down the current schedule of student advancement through basic mathematical disciplines.
