We’ll probably see another wave of this tomorrow, but in case you missed it, The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald went on a rampage against the mainstream media for peddling the Russian collusion myth.

This is getting very serious. It won’t stop with David Horowitz or me. The Left is moving quickly to silence all dissenting voices in the run-up to the 2018 elections. The freedom of speech is the foundation of a free society, and it is rapidly being destroyed in the United States. Not only are Horowitz, ...Read More...
