Megyn Kelly Again: Can She Escape Her Past?, Caitlin Flanigan, The Atlantic

Common Sense Commentary: The Atlantic was actually a pretty good magazine twenty+ years ago but since has devolved into another liberal propaganda platform. Still, for those who can edit out rampant liberal bias, like presenting extremist liberal radio host D. L. Hughley as some objective, moral voice of sanity when he appears on Kelly’s show [ha!], there are still some interesting, if biased, insights about Kelly and Fox News in this article, which, tinged with jealousy and envy, seems like a pathetic attempt to upend Kelly’s coming debut at NBC.

Tell America The Truth: We Should Be At War With Saudi Arabia, Raymond Ibrihim, Raymond Ibrahim.com

Quote: “…the Saudi regime is a monster. As in ISIS held territories, women in SA are little better than chattel; blasphemers, apostates, and homosexuals are persecuted and sometimes executed; all non-Sunnis—from Hindus to Shia—are subhuman infidels to be treated accordingly; house churches are closed, Bibles and crucifixes confiscated and destroyed, and Christians caught worshipping in private thrown in jail and tortured. SA is arguably even more backward than ISIS…”
