EXCLUSIVE: Turmoil Inside National Review Over Covington Catholic Story, Rich Lowry Losing Control

A source inside NRO speaks EXCLUSIVELY to Big League Politics



According to a source inside of #NeverTrump stalwart National Review, who spoke to Big League Politics on the condition of anonymity, the magazine is in turmoil after publishing a now-deleted piece bashing the Covington Catholic High School students.

Deputy managing editor Nicholas Frankovich penned a piece called “The Covington Students Might as Well Have Just Spit on the Cross,” which was published at 3 a.m. on Sunday.

“The guy who posted that did it at 3am without running it by anyone,” an employee familiar with the situation told Big League Politics.

The source said that editor Rich Lowry is “deeply chagrined” by incident.

“Rich feels bad about this,” the source added.

“It appears that most of the teenagers in this video are from a Catholic high school near Covington, Kentucky, across the Ohio River from Cincinnati. They mock a serious, frail-looking older man and gloat in their momentary role as Roman soldiers to his Christ. ‘Bullying’ is a worn-out word and doesn’t convey the full extent of the evil on display here,” the piece, archived here, said.

Many high-profile members of the #NeverTrump crowd immediately took to Twitter to bash the teenaged boys from Covington Catholic after the leftist mainstream press accused them of racist hatred towards Nathan Phillips, a Native American man. Apologizing and begging for forgiveness is one of the few strengths of Conservative Inc.

But after several hours of running with that narrative, Big League Politics, among other independent news outlets, published stories showing the full context of the incident. As it turned out, the Native man approached the boys, beating his drum in the face of the boy at the center of the incident. It is clear that the Native man was the cause of the confrontation.

Since the real story came to light, the magazine has reversed course. It published a Sunday piece telling the actual story, but did not apologize for, or mention its deleted hit piece on the  boys.

The heavy hitters at National Review took to Twitter to clarify that, after actually researching the incident, that they were wrong and the Covington Catholic boys were wrongly accused. None of them, though, mentioned the hastily deleted story at issue.

“Deleted my initial tweet on Lincoln Memorial incident. Even the video I watched last night that suggested some ambiguity didn’t fully capture what really happened. This was not what it was portrayed as *at all*” said Lowry.

“Agreed. The mobbing and threatening of these kids has been disgraceful. And now we’re on the phase of the controversy where it’s apparently important to tell the world that their school is some sort of hellhole,” said Trump-hater and Senior Writer David French, who spends most of his time apologizing to liberals for Trump’s actions.

“One other thing I’d note in all the hate against the Covington kid: We have an adult banging his drum inches from a kid’s face. Putting aside political biases and just focusing on decency — who is more responsible for defusing a tense situation, the adult or the kid?” French said in a later Tweet.

National Review is now keen to latch onto the popular narrative and hope that the public simply forgets its mistake. But internally, the magazine appears to be riding out turbulence in the wake of its embarrassing flub.

SHAMEFUL: Fox News Censors Newt Gingrich for Correctly Stating George Soros’ Role in Fomenting BLM Terror

Et tu, Fox News?



A Fox News panel lost their minds earlier today when former House Speaker Newt Gingrich mentioned George Soros’ role in supporting Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA terror displays.

Gingrich told Fox News host Harris Faulkner that it is district attorneys funded by George Soros who are responsible for the violence because they routinely allow violent rioters to be back on the streets. This is when the situation became extremely awkward and tense.

“I’m not sure we need to bring George Soros into this,” left-wing panelist Marie Harf interjected.

“He paid for it,” Gingrich responded.

“George Soros doesn’t need to be part of this conversation,” Harf commented.

“Okay,” Gingrich said confusedly. “So it’s verboten.”

“Alright, we’re good,” Faulkner said to cut Gingrich off. The clip ended with a bizarre period of silence before Faulkner tersely changed the subject.

While it may be expected that a liberal commentator might not want to discuss Soros, the fact that Faulkner – a supposedly non-biased straight news anchor – would carry water for the progressive oligarch is highly disconcerting.

Of course, Gingrich brought up a great point about Soros bankrolling far-left DAs who protect rioting terrorists at war with the Bill of Rights and Constitution.

Big League Politics reported on how a Soros front ponied up a large donation to St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner after she vowed to prosecute the McCloskey family for standing up for their rights against a left-wing mob coming to their doorstep:

A front funded by far-left billionaire George Soros has issued a $78,000 donation to the re-election campaign of St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, who is currently investigating the McCloskey family for defending their property against a marauding mob outside of their home.

The Missouri Justice & Public Safety PAC made the donation. This is a Washington, D.C.-based entity that also papered over Gardner’s campaign in 2016. They have apparently re-branded from “Safety and Justice PAC” to “Missouri Justice & Public Safety PAC” in order to dupe voters that they are a state-wide organization. Soros’ minions admit the oligarch’s collaboration with the fronts.

“Yes, it’s no secret we contribute to Safety and Justice PACs,” Soros spokesman Michael Vachon, said to Just the News. “We are for criminal justice reform.”

Gardner is railroading the McCloskeys after they were forced to confront left-wing terrorists who had barged through a gate and were threatening their home. The McCloskeys have had their home raided, their firearms confiscated, and their lawyer expects Gardner to officially file charges against them in the days to come.

“I believe the charges are imminent based upon Gardner’s past administrative actions and I believe any charges filed are wholeheartedly unwarranted,” said St. Louis attorney Joel Schwartz, who is serving as legal counsel for the McCloskeys.

Mary Pat Carl, a lawyer who quit her job as a homicide prosecutor after Gardner won election, is attempting to unseat Gardner. She claims that nearly 40 percent of prosecutors have resigned under Gardner’s stewardship, showing how disastrous her tenure has been for the rule of law and public safety.

President Donald Trump has more frequently accused Fox News of being a tool for the globalists in recent months.

Based on their covering for Soros’ role in supporting ANTIFA/BLM terrorists, Trump seems to be correct in his assessment. Fox News has been subverted by globalists, and alternative “America First” cable outlets such as OAN and Newsmax need to be supported by Trump supporters.
