Internet schools prominent NY Times writer for his ‘warning’ Dems must build ‘real bridges to the other

‘It Was the Biggest One-Election House Loss for Republicans Since 1974’ a Washington Post Reporter Reminds Bret Stephens

Progressives on social media are furious after a prominent New York Times conservative opinion writer’s “Warning to the Democrats” that the midterm results show they must start “building real bridges to the other America.”

Controversial right wing author Bret Stephens is a “never-Trumper” and climate change denier who Vox described as someone “who thinks anti-racists are the real racists.” Stephens is also an MSNBC contributor.

On Thursday he wrote that the results of Tuesday’s historic midterms were just “meh.”
“This week’s elections were, at most, a very modest rebuke of a president reviled by many of his opponents,” Stephens claims. “It also underscores that while ‘the Resistance’ is good at generating lots of votes, it hasn’t figured out how to turn the votes into seats.”

“The Resistance didn’t convert,” Stephens continues, chastising the DNC “when it poured its money into” Beto O’Rourke’s campaign, and into other campaigns in the South.

It didn’t convert when Chuck Schumer chose to make Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court the decisive political test of the year. It didn’t convert when it turned his initial confirmation hearing into a circus. It didn’t convert when media liberals repeatedly violated ordinary journalistic standards by reporting the uncorroborated accusations against Kavanaugh that followed Christine Blasey Ford’s.

Above all, it didn’t convert the unconverted.

Many on social media expressed that Stephens is just not well informed, and wonder why he has a job at The Times.

“It was the biggest one-election House loss for Republicans since 1974, playing out on largely favorable maps, with the party presiding over full employment,” The Washington Post’s Dave Weigel noted on Twitter, debunking Stephens’ claims.

Osita Nwanevu, a staff writer for The New Yorker, used Stephens’ words as an indictment, in a tweet that has received a lot of attention:

First test of Virgin Orbit rocket fails to accomplish goal

Published

on

The first test launch of a rocket that is released from a jumbo jet at 35,000 feet and then propels itself into orbit to deploy a satellite failed on Monday, the Virgin Orbit company said.

"The mission terminated shortly into the flight. Cosmic Girl and our flight crew are safe and returning to base," Virgin Orbit's Twitter account reported as the test was underway off the coast of California.

The plane released the rocket cleanly, but the latter developed trouble of unknown origin after igniting its first-stage engine, the company said.

Founded by British billionaire Richard Branson in 2012, Virgin Orbit wants to offer a quick and flexible launch service for operators of small satellites, weighing between 300 and 500 kilos (600 to 1,00 pounds), a market which is currently booming.

Trump uses Memorial Day to attack Biden and recycle old lies about his coronavirus response

NYT: "At Least 430,000 People Have Arrived in the United States on Direct Flights From China"

President Donald Trump used the occasion of the Memorial Day holiday to recycle old, debunked lies about his likely Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden.

In a tweet Trump made several accusations, none of them are true.

Sleepy Joe Biden (mostly his reps.) went crazy when I banned, in late January, people coming in from China. He called me “xenophobic” & then went equally “nuts” when we let in 44,000 people - until he was told they were American citizens coming home. He later apologized!
