The last year could be described as The Year of Transgender Propaganda. The Hollywood and news media push on the latest frontier of "gender fluidity" demonstrates the libertine left's absolute arrogance that the LGBT revolution is an unstoppable juggernaut.

Our pro-Obama media celebrated his recent F-bomb-tweaking shtick ("bucket") as one of the "funniest" jokes he made. They think it's funny because they zealously support his agenda, and care not at all about executive overreach — as long as the executive orders are liberal.

It's quite rare that the major media pay this much attention to the shady self-dealing of the left inside "public" broadcasting. Ben Affleck unintentionally demonstrates what passes for "editorial integrity" at our taxpayer-subsidized liberal sandbox.

While Hillary Clinton hates doing Sunday shows, she did allow her close friend Gov. Terry McAuliffe to appear on "Meet the Press" on April 19. Jaws dropped when NBC host Chuck Todd threw him a real Russert-like hardball. The question remains whether tough questions like Todd's are persistent, or merely an occasional exception to the Clinton-indulging rule.

Father John Zuhlsdorf, a priest and blogger in Madison, Wisconsin, has arrived at a solution for all the lawsuits filed by homosexual activists against Christian florists, bakers, and other businesses. If gay couples want to force their lifestyle on others, it naturally follows that religious believers should push their beliefs more elaborately as well.

It is fair to say that Hillary Clinton is as liberal as Ted Cruz is conservative. This will explain why our so-called "objective" media are already treating Hillary as the Third Coming (Obama was No. 2) while Cruz merits hide-your-children alarms.

It's beyond amazing that a character on prime-time TV's "The Good Wife" is preaching a pro-life message, complete with statistics, and he isn't made to look like Satan incarnate.

The Old Media loathes the New Media as unreliable, but have no right to pass judgment. Increasingly, they are prone to leap into news stories based on their own liberal social media networks. Look no further than the new Indiana religious freedom law.

The "transitioning" Bruce Jenner apparently demands nothing but respect in Hollywood. But the pope invites ridicule. Abortion is funny. God help us. Our world is upside down.

On the occasion of the opening of an "Edward M. Kennedy Institute" in Boston, the whitewash was so complete that not a single word of legitimate criticism could be heard about "the greatest senator of all time." Except -- he wasn't.

Lewinsky wishes to reinvent herself as an evangelist and a guru, but how to do it? Call it shame-shaming.

Ted Cruz is unacceptable to the liberal media because he won't compromise. An unsigned staff editorial in The Washington Post is steeped in denial, if not intellectual obfuscation, ignoring the governing reality of Obama, the uncompromising wacko bird.

The New York Times is nowhere closer to viewpoint diversity. The ideological range is still radical-left to country club liberal Republican.

This scandal pattern is as obnoxious as it is predictable. A liberal newspaper breaks a serious news story about a liberal, everyone might take it seriously for a week or 10 days, but then it dies without resolution.

When Catholic priests are part of the plot these days, there is an unmistakable odor of aggression — mocking, vilifying, and disparaging not just Catholic priests, but the priesthood itself.

The entirety of the Obama era is marked by secrecy, obfuscation and, if all else fails, sheer dishonesty. What is it about these elites that they believe rules just don't pertain to them?

We can't expect the Hollywood left to knock off the Oscar sermonizing. But they certainly can't expect America to like it.

Some might insist Barack Obama is a lame duck, but our national media elite still think of him as a very graceful swan. When this man comes under criticism, journalists are incapable of any sense of objectivity, balance or fairness. The accuser must be forced to withdraw the criticism, or be punished.

Here's one obvious sign that we live in a profane world. "Fifty Shades of Grey," the "mommy-porn" book turned into a movie, complete with its whips and chains and erotic punishment, debuted to far less controversy than "The Passion of the Christ" in 2004.

The safest bet you can possibly make at the beginning of a presidential election cycle is that the "objective" national media will savage the Republican contenders with "investigative" journalism. Not just one Republican contender, but all the Republican contenders.
