BLM Co-Founder Admits Their Goal Is Just To ‘Get Trump Out,’ Alienates Black Trump Supporters


Reported By C. Douglas Golden | Published June 21, 2020 at 1:50pm

It’s probably a good question, before we go forward on a wider cultural discussion that involves unanimous consent for the three-word construct “black lives matter,” what those words really mean. The phrase itself, unless your views on race and culture are rebarbative, is axiomatic and has been since it was coined over a half-decade ago. You could plug almost any  group into the blank space in “_______ lives matter” and you’d be right. This isn’t what it means.

The general conclusion we’ve reached over the gut-wrenching past few weeks, ever since the events leading up to the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody was available to watch by anyone with a cell phone, is that it means something nebulous-ish involving the force of the state being brought to bear on people of color in an inappropriate manner. The problem is that “nebulous-ish” part. The group Black Lives Matter was never quite just an official organization, it also wasn’t just a hashtag. This means that while it currently has one foot in mainstream acceptance, another foot remains in its roots as an organization on the far-ish reaches of the left.

If you wanted evidence of this residual hard-leftist slant, you need have looked no further than Patrisse Cullors’ appearance on CNN on Friday. Cullors was one of the founders of the movement back in 2013 and has remained one of its most prominent voices, which means she’s in demand again. On Friday, she appeared on CNN to discuss the movement and what its goals were. You may not be surprised at one of them:

During the interview on “The Lead,” Jake Tapper and his perma-scrunched face asked Cullors just what is it she wanted to do — at least when it came to the election.

“I’ve heard a lot of criticism of former Vice President Joe Biden from civil rights activists,” Tapper said.

“The election, obviously, will be a choice. How do you think Biden matches up compared to President Trump when it comes to these issues that are important to you?”


The Lead CNN

@TheLeadCNN

President “Trump not only needs to not be in office in November but he should resign now,” says co-founder of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Patrisse Cullors. “Trump needs to be out of office. He is not fit for office.”

1,286 people are talking about this


“Trump not only needs to not be in office in November, but he should resign now,” Cullors said.

“Trump needs to be out of office. He is not fit for office. And so what we are going to push for is a move to get Trump out. While we’re also going to continue to push and pressure Vice President Joe Biden around his policies and relationship to policing and criminalization. That’s going to be important. But our goal is to get Trump out.”

In other words, at a basic level, this isn’t really about black lives — at least not for Cullors. After all, if Cullors’ belief is that all black people are in danger from a bigoted law enforcement structure, the obvious choice would be to work not only with white allies but also black individuals who make common cause with Trump on enough issues to vote for him.

And even though the possibility that Trump has support among black voters, polling from as recently as June 5 shows the incumbent president with black support that should give Democrats nightmares.


Rasmussen Reports

@Rasmussen_Poll

Reader Tip: Coming Later

Our Daily Presidential Tracking poll today shows Black Likely Voter approval of the job @realDonaldTrump is now over 40%.

20K people are talking about this


Of course, Democrats won’t buy that number. And the mainstream media won’t be trying to sell it. But the point is, Rasmussen is a respectable polling organization. If Trump is running at 40 percent black voter support — or even half that number — he’s getting more support in that segment of the electorate than leftists believe.

And if that Rasmussen number is anywhere near correct, the woman who is accepted as speaking for Black Lives Matter is ignoring a substantial number of actual black lives in the United States. But building unity in the black community, or even reaching out to black Trump supporters, is not what this wing of Black Lives Matter is about. It’s about beating Donald Trump.

Now, the thing with Black Lives Matter is that Cullors does not — in fact, cannot — speak for the entire movement. That’s a weakness, both when it comes to organization and leadership, but it’s a strength when it comes to nailing down the protean nature of the organization. Black Lives Matter is more than just a slogan, but the great thing for its principals is that it’s like a slogan: It means exactly what you want it to mean.

It’s also good to know that at the same time Black Lives Matter is demanding redress for centuries-old issues, it’s ostensibly throwing its weight behind the Democratic Party, which was — in some of our lifetimes — the party of segregation and Jim Crow. (And as a relatively young senator in the 1970s, Biden had no problems buddying up to some of its most segregationist members.)

Cullors ignores this racist history.

And notice how Cullors makes it clear that her group needs to need to “pressure Vice President Joe Biden around his policies and relationship to policing and criminalization.” In other words, they know the former veep’s record around policing in this country

But this is just one voice, you may say. True — and therein lies the advantage.

Black Lives Matter is whatever you think it is, at least when it’s ingratiating itself to the public. Give its members a modicum of power, however, and you’ll see that change posthaste, especially in the run-up to the 2020 election.

‘You’re Not a Journalist Brian, You’re an Activist!” – WOW! – Trump Senior Legal Advisor Destroys CNN’s Brian Stelter after Nasty Insult (VIDEO)


Reported By Jim Hoft | Published June 14, 2020 at 3:51pm

Brilliant and talented Senior Legal Advisor to the Trump Campaign, Jenna Ellis, joined CNN’s Brian Stelter on Sunday Morning on Reliable Sources.

Poor Brian was completely outmatched with the brilliant and talented Trump associate.

During their discussion Stelter complained about the term “fake news” and then got personal when he told Ellis that she would regret using “slurs” when her kids and grandkids see this one day.
What a jerk!

That’s when Jenna fired back: “Oh, now you’re going for the personal attacks. That’s when you know you’ve lost the debate… C’mon, that’s really low, Brian. You’re not trying to do your job. You’re not a journalist, Brian, you’re an activist!”

CNN Finds Bright Side to Tens of Thousands of COVID Deaths: The Air Is Cleaner


Reported By Johnathan Jones | Published April 15, 2020 at 8:37am

As governments race to contain the spread of COVID-19, and citizens across the world deal with the health, financial and emotional tolls of the disease, CNN has found the silver lining: Cleaner air! The network’s early Saturday morning B-team went up to bat this past weekend as people slept and airports, which always seem to air CNN’s coverage, were ghost townsStill, for anyone who might have been watching, the network paraded widespread, draconian lockdowns as an efficacious solution to climate change.

While you’d be hard-pressed to find a sane individual who is content with the current state of life on the planet, CNN gleefully used the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic to suggest social and economic reforms in order to deal with climate change.

CNN early morning anchor Natalie Allen welcomed meteorologist Derek Van Dam during a segment in the 5 a.m. block of the network’s Saturday coverage, according to the Media Research Center. Both Allen and Van Dam were a bit too cheerful in reporting that some folks in India can see the Himalayan mountain range from 100 miles away, due to the absence of smog with the country shut down.

“[India] has been under lockdown for more than two weeks, and that has dramatically improved the air quality and visibility,” Allen said.

Allen and Van Dam, who was reporting from his basement, didn’t stop at marveling at this phenomenon.

Speaking to Van Dam, Allen added, “This is often a topic we talk about here at CNN, and, finally, you know, this is a bright spot in this era of pandemic, like, bring on the electric cars and, you know, climate — solving climate change isn’t that hard.”

“Preaching to the choir right there, Natalie,” Van Dam replied. “You know, I like to consider myself an optimist, and I think you could probably relate to this — just on my daily run today across midtown Atlanta, where we live, the skies have never been this blue, in my opinion.”

“There’s virtually no car traffic, no airline traffic taking place out of Atlanta’s Hartsfield International Airport — of course a few planes, but virtually nothing compared to what it would normally be on any given day. And, yeah, there’s just less air pollution,” the meteorologist concluded.

Van Dam then essentially asked Allen to picture a world where people are forced to live under permanent government control in order to save the planet from climate change.

“Can you imagine if our response to the climate crisis equaled that of the robust nature of the COVID-19 response? Where would we be, Natalie?” he asked.

“I know. That’s a very good question that we all should ponder. And I’m with you,” Allen responded. “I’ve been marveling at the blue sky in Atlanta. It’s just been magnificent.”

It’s probably safe to assume most people would take a hard pass at living life in its current state on a permanent basis. But when you look at the economic toll of the coronavirus, it is essentially what Democrats have pushed for when discussing Green New Deal legislation. Various models of the outrageously expensive environmental plan would essentially force people to use public transportation and do away with most commercial air travel. A Green New Deal would equate to food shortages, large-scale rationing, limited travel and a government takeover of the majority of the economy, as regulations would slowly strong-arm working people into becoming wards of the state.

If anything, CNN has made a strong case against sweeping climate change measures, because we’re essentially living under them already — and they’re no fun. It’s great that a few people in India got a chance to see the Himalayas for a while.

Hopefully, sooner rather than later, those people are going to have to move a bit closer if they want that same view.

Unlike CNN’s climate activists, Americans are ready to fire up the economic engine that has made this country so unique, because we want our lives back.

Nolte: All the Establishment Media’s Dangerous Coronavirus Lies

America’s deeply unserious but very corrupt and unreliable establishment media have no intention of changing their dangerous ways in the age of the Wuhan coronavirus. Watching the media spread lies and unnecessary panic over the last few weeks reminds me of the CNN Race Riots of 2014.

After the George Zimmerman Hoax failed, after it was discovered that a white man had not hunted down and murdered a black teen (Zimmerman is Hispanic and a jury ruled he killed in self-defense), the fake news media moved on to the Hands-Up-Don’t-Shoot Hoax, which was led primarily by far-left CNN and the far-left Washington Post.

The lies and hate spread by the corporate media resulted in multiple nights of rioting in the working class, predominantly black city of Ferguson, Missouri. Then, like a plague of locusts, and apparently under the impression the city doesn’t already have enough problems, CNN moved on to Baltimore.

Monsters

The reason the media’s coronavirus lies remind me of the CNN Race Riots of 2014 is because This Matters.

What I mean by that is that George Zimmerman, Ferguson, and Baltimore mattered. This was our malevolent media behaving exactly like a Bond villain: pushing a political agenda and looking to juice ratings at the expense of real people. Zimmerman, an innocent man, had his life and reputation ruined. The homes and businesses destroyed by those race riots are homes and businesses owned by everyday Americans, not the wealthy and certainly not CNN chief Jeff Zucker or anti-Trump activist Jake Tapper, whose fancy homes are miles away from the devastation they caused.

You see, as awful as the media have been over the last three years, the Russia Hoax and the Impeachment Hoax were D.C. food fights. That doesn’t mean there wasn’t collateral damage or that innocent people weren’t hurt — like President Trump and his family — but politics is politics. You know the risks going in…

Coronavirus is not a D.C. food fight. Like the CNN Race Riots of 2014, it affects everyday people: we have shut down our economy. The stock market is going insane. People are scared, worried, stressed, and have reason to be. Even if you remove the fear of the virus, no one can escape the fear of the panic, and the media’s blatant lies are only adding to this uncertainty and fear — and are doing so by design.

And for what? To what end..? Well, for the exact same reasons the media ginned up those race riots: a depraved indifference to human life driven by nothing more than a political agenda and the naked greed that comes with ratings and clicks.

Don’t believe me?

Here’s the evidence…

All the media’s coronavirus lies….

Keep in mind, these are not mistakes. Mistakes are random. Mistakes fall both ways. Our fake news media’s “mistakes” fall only one way — in the direction of ginning up panic in our streets and hatred of Trump and his supporters, who have already paid a very heavy price.

As you read this list, no matter what you do, do not call the media the enemy of the people … because that would be wrong.

  1. Trump Told Governors to Get Their Own Goddamned Ventilators!

Now that the media can no longer attack Trump over the coronavirus testing (as you’ll see below), we’ve moved to ventilators. “Ventilators” is the new Katrina, the new metric with which to beat Trump senseless… So naturally, the media are going to lie shamelessly, which is exactly what they are doing, even as I write these words:

At least eight New York Times authors shared a deceptively edited quote Monday from President Donald Trump’s recent call with state governors, creating the false impression that the president is denying federal support for ventilators that are needed in hospitals treating coronavirus patients.

In his message, the president recommended that states procure respirators and ventilators because it would be faster — but added that the federal government “will be backing you.”

The Times journalists omitted the bulk of the president’s statement as they shared the story on social media. The misleading, partial quote was also boosted by a CNN correspondent and became the lead headline at the left-wing Huffington Post.

Despite growing online backlash to this misinformation, the journalists have yet to delete or retract their comments.

Here’s the president’s full quote:

Respirators, ventilators, all of the equipment — try getting it yourselves. We will be backing you, but try getting it yourselves. Point of sales, much better, much more direct if you can get it yourself.

He’s telling the governors, Do what you can while we do what we can do. This is excellent advice the liars at the far-left New York Times are deliberately twisting to cause panic, to tell the public the president doesn’t care.

  1. Trump Seeks Monopoly on Coronavirus Vaccine

What better way to increase the world’s hatred of America, everyone’s hatred of Trump, and cause even more illegal aliens to crash into our country (seeking a vaccine) than to spread the fake news the American president is looking to monopolize any potential coronavirus vaccine?

But that is exactly what Reuters, The Guardian, Business Insider, and staffers at the New York Times and MSNBC did.

This lie doesn’t even make sense.

What good would it do America to corner the market on a vaccine? It costs us nothing to share the information so other countries can create their own vaccine. What good does it do the U.S. to sit around and watch everyone else die?

  1. Nationwide Curfew!

Good ol’ Jim Sciutto, one of the most infamous liars in the country, a former Obama official hired by the serial liars at CNN to serial lie.

“New: There are active discussions within the Trump administration to encourage a possible ‘curfew’ across the nation in which non-essential businesses would have to close by a certain time each night,” Sciutto wrote on social media, citing “CNN reporting.”

It’s not true. And unless you’re looking to sow panic, it also makes no sense. What good would a curfew do, most especially a nationwide curfew? Does the virus only strike at night? There are reports Patient Zero ate a bat.

Maybe it was a vampire bat!

  1. Trump Lied About the Google Website

“Google says it’s not publishing a national-scale coronavirus site,” CNN anti-Trump activist Jake Tapper tweeted to his 2.3 million Twitter followers last week.

He linked to a CNN story with the headline, “Google says it’s not publishing a national-scale coronavirus site anytime soon.” This was a story that smeared Trump as a liar for announcing Google will be building a national-scale coronavirus website.

The original and very fake CNN story can be found here.

Here’s the opener:

Google will not be publishing a national-scale website for coronavirus testing anytime soon, contrary to claims made by President Donald Trump during a Friday news conference.

Instead, a health-focused subsidiary owned by Google’s parent company, Alphabet, intends to launch a small-scale website next week to begin to triage California-based patients. The website will aim to serve a broader population only “over time” — not “very quickly,” as Trump said.

“What we’re building is a triage tool that will live on ProjectBaseline.com, and we plan to pilot it in California next week,” said Carolyn Wang, a spokesperson for the Alphabet subsidiary, Verily.

Here’s the Google Search screencap which captured CNN’s lie:

But now, if you click on that Google link, the CNN story says the exact opposite of what the original story said. Here’s the new headline and opener:

Google will partner with US government to develop a nationwide coronavirus website, company says

Google now says it is working with the government on the creation of a national website containing information about coronavirus symptoms and testing information.

“Google is partnering with the US Government in developing a national website that includes information about COVID-19 symptoms, risk and testing information,” the company said in a series of tweets Saturday evening.

The company did not give a time frame of when such a website would be up and running.

On Friday after the President said Google was helping to develop a website and it would be available soon, the company declined to say it would be publishing a national-scale website for coronavirus testing anytime soon.

PROPAGANDIST

Naturally, there is no editor’s note informing readers the original story was a lie or has been retracted or updated, which is highly unethical.

CNN spread a bald-faced lie to undermine the president, got caught, and did everything in its malevolent power to cover that lie up.

  1. Trump Shut Down the CDC’s Pandemic Department!

Do I even need to point out how virulent and widespread this talking point has been?

Sigh:

No, the White House didn’t ‘dissolve’ its pandemic response office. I was there.

It has been alleged by multiple officials of the Obama administration, including in The Post, that the president and his then-national security adviser, John Bolton, “dissolved the office” at the White House in charge of pandemic preparedness. Because I led the very directorate assigned that mission, the counterproliferation and biodefense office, for a year and then handed it off to another official who still holds the post, I know the charge is specious.

It is true that the Trump administration has seen fit to shrink the NSC staff. But the bloat that occurred under the previous administration clearly needed a correction. Defense Secretary Robert Gates, congressional oversight committees and members of the Obama administration itself all agreed the NSC was too large and too operationally focused (a departure from its traditional role coordinating executive branch activity). As The Post reported in 2015, from the Clinton administration to the Obama administration’s second term, the NSC’s staff “had quadrupled in size, to nearly 400 people.” That is why Trump began streamlining the NSC staff in 2017.

The reduction of force in the NSC has continued since I departed the White House. But it has left the biodefense staff unaffected[.]

It is this reorganization that critics have misconstrued or intentionally misrepresented. If anything, the combined directorate was stronger because related expertise could be commingled.

In other words, it wasn’t dissolved, it was streamlined.

  1. Trump Declared the Coronavirus a Hoax!

This desperate lie, launched by the far-left Politico, was quickly debunked by fact-checkers, including  the far-left Washington Post. That’s how big of a lie it is — the Washington Post conceded it was a lie.

Nevertheless, CNN continues to spread this lie.

  1. Calling the Wuhan Virus the ‘Wuhan Virus’ Is Racist

As has already been exhaustively pointed out, the naming of a virus or disease after a location — including a lily-white location like Lyme, Connecticut — is just how it’s done and has been done forever.

But now it’s racist, even though the very same media declaring it racist is the very same media that first called it the “Chinese Virus” or the “Wuhan Virus,” or some variation thereof.

Here’s a pretty comprehensive list that’s been floating around. There are probably more examples, but this more than makes the point:

  • “Japan and Thailand Confirm New Cases of Chinese Coronavirus,” The New York Times, 1/15/20
  • “The CDC and Homeland Security begin screening for Chinese Coronavirus at three major US airports as outbreak spreads in Asia,” CNBC, 1/17/20
  • “Vaccine for new Chinese coronavirus in the works,” CNN, 1/20/20
  • “First U.S. case of potentially deadly Chinese coronavirus confirmed in Washington state,” Washington Post, 1/21/20
  • “Chinese coronavirus outbreak has reached U.S. shores, CDC says,” Los Angeles Times, 1/21/20
  • “The First Case Of The Chinese Coronavirus Has Hit The US, CDC Reports,” Buzzfeed, 1/21/20
  • “First case of Chinese coronavirus confirmed in Washington state,” NBC’s Today Show, 1/24/20
  • “Chinese coronavirus infections, death toll soar as fifth case is confirmed in U.S.,” Washington Post, 1/26/20
  • “Japan confirms case of new Chinese virus, spread is ‘concerning,’” Reuters, 1/15/20
  • “How the Chinese virus outbreak impacts Lunar New Year travel,” National Geographic, 1/24/20
  • “China coronavirus ‘spreads before symptoms show,’” BBC, 1/26/20
  • “Over a thousand ‘likely’ infected by Wuhan virus in China: Study,” Al Jazeera, 1/18/20
  • “Stop the Wuhan virus,” Nature Magazine editorial, 1/21/20)
  • “China confirms Wuhan virus can be spread by humans,” CNN, 1/22/20
  • “First U.S. Case Reported of Deadly Wuhan Virus,” Wall Street Journal, 1/22/20
  • “Here are the symptoms of the deadly Wuhan coronavirus and when you should be worried,” Business Insider, 1/22/20
  • “Something Far Deadlier Than The Wuhan Virus Lurks Near You,” Kaiser Health News, 1/24/20
  • “With Wuhan virus genetic code in hand, scientists begin work on a vaccine,” Reuters, 1/24/20
  • “The Wuhan Virus: How to Stay Safe,” Foreign Policy, 1/25/20
  • “Something Far Deadlier Than The Wuhan Virus Lurks Near You,” USA Today, 1/29/20
  • “10-Year-Old Boy Raises Fears Wuhan Virus Could Spread Undetected,” Bloomberg, 1/29/20
  • “Your Questions About Wuhan Coronavirus, Answered, National Public Radio, 1/30/20
  • “Will the Wuhan virus become a pandemic?” The Economist, 1/30/20
    • NOTE: The photo in this article was on their COVER for this issue.

Additionally, the video below is nothing less than a devastating compilation of just how dishonest and unserious the media are:

To sum this up, the fake news media floods these words and terms into the American lexicon, and then sanctimoniously turns around and attacks those who repeat them as racist.

  1. Trump Rejected WHO Coronavirus Test Kits

Everyone from Grandpa Joe Biden to CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta to Esquire to NBC News to, to, to… This is such a lie, the far-left PolitiFact debunked it.

  1. Trump Blocked Testing Because Lower Numbers are Good for His Reelection

This lie arrives courtesy of the welfare queens at NPR and a Newsweek staffer’s hysterical amplification that has been retweeted almost a quarter-million times.

And once again, I ask, how does this makes any sense?

In the face of the facts, Trump is doing back-flips to start testing. What’s more, how does not testing benefit his re-election chances? It’s not as if people who test positive won’t eventually become symptomatic.

This is not just a lie (no other media outlet has confirmed it, which means even CNN couldn’t find a lying source that has lied to them so many times before to lie about this one), it’s by far the stupidest lie on this list.

  1. It’s Trump Fault Coronavirus Testing Was Delayed

Nope:

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said Tuesday that the blame for the slow pace of testing for coronavirus in the U.S. does not lie with either President Trump or the CDC.

Fauci told Hugh Hewitt on “The Hugh Hewitt” show that a “technical glitch” resulted in the delay in production of usable tests in the U.S., something Fauci prescribed to random error.

“This has nothing to do with anybody’s fault, certainly not the president’s fault.”

 

11. Trump Silenced Dr. Fauci

This lie spread like wildfire before Fauci himself was given a chance to tell the truth.

We are plagued with a dishonest, unreliable, unserious, dangerous media, driven only by political calculation and naked greed.

The media are so evil and indecent, even a pandemic can’t cure them.

CNN host credits Trump for ‘remarkable’ response to coronavirus pandemic: ‘He is being the kind of leader that people need’


President Donald Trump has been taking the coronavirus threat more seriously in the past week, and even one CNN host has taken notice and given the president credit for his response.

CNN’s Dana Bash on Tuesday pushed back on criticism of Trump by pointing out that, at least with his recent words and tone, he’s doing a good job managing the crisis.

“If you look at the big picture, this was remarkable by the president of the United States,” Bash said. “This is a nonpartisan, this is an important thing to note and to applaud, from an American standpoint, from a human standpoint. He is being the kind of leader that people need, at least in tone, today and yesterday, in tone, that people need and want and yearn for in times of crisis and uncertainty.”

An NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll showed that 49% of Americans disapprove of Trump’s handling of the pandemic, compared to 44% who approve. Only 37% say they have either a “good amount” or a “great deal” of trust in information from the president about the coronavirus, while 60% say they trust the president “not very much” or “not at all” on the issue.

After initially taking a more casual stance toward the significance of the coronavirus, President Trump in recent days has shown a willingness to enact drastic measures, both socially and economically, to help the United States reduce the spread of the coronavirus and minimize the economic impact on businesses and Americans.

With the stock market significantly down over the past week and several industries being crippled by a lack of consumer activity directly resulting from the threat of the coronavirus, the Trump administration is working with Congress on an economic stimulus package that could exceed $1 trillion and may include bailouts for travel and hospitality companies, direct payments to Americans, and various forms of support or relief for small businesses.

On Monday, the president urged all Americans to stay home as much as possible from work and school, and to limit gatherings to 10 people or fewer to slow the spread of the coronavirus so that a high number of cases doesn’t overwhelm the health care system.

Nolte: Media-Approved Hate Crimes Against Trump Supporters Explode Post-Acquittal

Nothing proves “silence is consent” more than the media establishment’s revealing indifference in the face of a recent wave of violent attacks and threats against Trump supporters.

First, a little background…

As of March of 2019, Breitbart News documented 332 separate, media-approved political hate crimes committed against Trump supporters. This list includes physical assaults, vandalism, and the open encouragement of violence against individuals and groups based only on their personal beliefs. Sadly, through its deafening silence and indifference, the corporate media not only give consent to commit acts of political violence against those of us on the right, as we have seen on countless occasions — especially at the far-left CNN — the media regularly encourage and openly call for violence against Trump and his supporters. And now the violence is once again exploding…

With the Russia Collusion Hoax exposed, President Trump forever acquitted of a frame-job impeachment, a Democrat presidential field filled with hapless, white, decrepit millionaires and billionaires; the president piling up a list of solid accomplishments and his re-election looking more likely by the day, the impotent rage of the media is increasing, and this is obviously spilling over into the public at large, which is why we have seen at least seven hate crimes against Trump supporters in just over a week.

  • February 9, 2020: Man Arrested for Driving Car Through GOP Voter Registration Booth

Witnesses told JSO that a man in his 20s driving an older brown Chevy van pulled up to the tent before driving through, running over their tables and chairs. Volunteers for the Republican Party were registering people to vote.

No volunteers were hurt, according to JSO. Witnesses said the driver of the van, stopped the vehicle, got out of the van and took a video while making obscene gestures before he left.

The vandalism occurred around 2:37 a.m. Saturday. Surveillance video picked up a vehicle parking in the lot outside the building. A man walked out of the vehicle with a can of spray paint in his hands, went over to the front of the building and spray-painted the words “Still Traitors” in yellow and gold paint on the stucco front of the headquarters.

  • February 10, 2020: California GOP Headquarters Vandalized for Sixth Time in Two Years

The latest act of vandalism at the Humboldt County Republican headquarters in Eureka is the sixth of its kind in just two years, though the damage this time may be far more costly than prior incidents, the party’s local chair said Monday.

“This was above and beyond anything that’s happened before,” said John Schutt. “Windows were broken and the suspect had thrown rocks, too. He poured liquid on merchandise .. a lot of stuff was destroyed that way.”

  • February 12, 2020: UC Santa Cruz College Republican Display Destroyed and Vandalized

A 14-year-old high school student wearing a “Make America Hat Again” hat was struck and called a “fascist” while leaving a New Hampshire polling place Tuesday night with the father of his friend, authorities said.

Windham Police Capt. Bryan Smith confirmed the details of the incident to Pluralist and said an investigation was underway but would not comment further.

  • February 13, 2020: Man Threatens to Cut Throats of Arizona State Students for Trump Event

 According to reports, the former cop, Daniel Sprague, was celebrating his 50th birthday at The Stage bar on Broadway in Nashville, Tennessee, and donned a red “Make Fifty Great Again” hat given to him by his wife.

Sprague told WSMV that people came up to him and were “just loving the little word play on the hat and taking pictures and wishing me happy birthday.” However, Sprague claims one woman approached him and ultimately punched him in the face, grabbing his hat and shouting, “How dare you.”

When a rodeo clown in Nowheresville, Nowhere, puts on an Obama mask, the media destroy his reputation and career.

When some guy makes a video mocking CNN, the Hate Network destroys his life by threatening to doxx him.

When the media want certain behavior to stop, they launch jihads.

But when Trump supporters, including children, are physically assaulted, the media shrug, and that shrug is a wink, a nod of approval, a way of saying, Carry on, we’re on your side. You heroes have nothing to fear from us.

The corporate media are a danger to every law-abiding American citizen, and their embrace of violence against us, their encouragement of that violence, will only get worse as the 2020 race heats up.

And never forget that as the media encourage this violence against us, they also seek to disarm us.

CNN Concedes Republicans Make Valid Point


Written By Tiffany Layne |

CNN, John King, Impeachment, TeamKJ, KevinJackson

There’s a certain irony in the fact that CNN has graced our news twice today.

Earlier, we dissected an article in which CNN didn’t adhere to the high journalistic standards expected of the mainstream media.

Or shall I say “once expected,” because it seems people are content with #FakeNews all too often. Nevertheless, CNN published an article in which the very title was an erroneous claim.

The headline read: GOP concedes Trump may have withheld aid for probes but says it’s not impeachable.

take our poll – story continues below
  • Should the US Senate Give President Trump a Full Acquittal?*
    • Yes!
    • No!
    • Undecided
  • Email*

Trending: Did You See Comey’s Tweet on Impeachment Acquittal?

As we pointed out, CNN’s senior congressional correspondent, Manu Raju, clearly tried to pass off his opinions as statements of fact. Of course, we’ve grown accustomed to CNN’s inability to stick to the facts. Thus, it’s always surprising when a member of the CNN staff has a moment of clarity.

But that’s exactly what happened shortly after the Justice Roberts refused to read Rand Paul’s question during the impeachment hearing.

Justice Roberts said he didn’t want to reveal the identity of the whistleblower. (Even though his identity has been established by several media sites.) Thus, a debate ensued.

And Rand Paul took his question to Twitter.

As we previously reported:

“My exact question was: Are you aware that House intelligence committee staffer Shawn Misko had a close relationship with Eric Ciaramella while at the National Security Council together,” Paul stated, “and are you aware and how do you respond to reports that Ciaramella and Misko may have worked together to plot impeaching the President before there were formal house impeachment proceedings.”
Paul said his question was not in regard to the whistleblower’s ID, but about whether leftover partisan Obama officials conspired with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, now the head impeachment manager in the Senate, to devise an impeachment scheme prior to the beginning of the proceedings.
“My question today is about whether or not individuals who were holdovers from the Obama National Security Council and Democrat partisans conspired with Schiff staffers to plot impeaching the President before there were formal House impeachment proceedings,” Paul tweeted. “My question is not about a ‘whistleblower’ as I have no independent information on his identity.”

Here’s where the shock and awe comes in.

CNN’s John King agreed with the Republicans.

In fact, King even proposed some questions of his own.

As Fox News explains:

CNN anchor John King defended Republicans on Thursday, arguing they made a “legitimate point” in asking why the intelligence community whistleblower — who brought the complaint that prompted Trump’s impeachment — hadn’t been questioned.
“You’re asking the Congress, the Senate now, to remove the President of the United States,” King said. “It’s a legitimate point for the president’s team and the Republicans to say: ‘Shouldn’t we go to the very origin of this?’”
His comments came after Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., tried asking a question that mentioned the name of a person reported to be the whistleblower. Chief Justice John Roberts shut down the question, which Paul described as “atypical.”
King said he wouldn’t help Paul “air his grievances” over the issue, but proposed certain questions for Democrats.
“Republicans make a good point — the whistleblower started all of this. Why hasn’t the whistleblower been questioned?” he said. “Shouldn’t the House Democrats have found a secure way to do that? It’s a legitimate point of debate as we go through this.”
“Is outing the whistleblower in a public setting the way to make your point? I think we could have a conversation about that … the Democrats’ argument is that just about everything the whistleblower alleged has been proven through other sources, so we don’t need to do this.”

It’s sad when using common sense becomes headline-worthy. But the mainstream media is so far removed from reality that this rare show of intelligence clearly blew our minds today! As for tomorrow, expect democrats to prepare for defeat.

Ann Coulter: CNN and Fox News Report on the Rise of Hitler


Commentary by Ann Coulter Ann Coulter | Posted: Jan 08, 2020 5:12 PM

While listening to news reports of what a monstrous threat Iran is, I’ve been wracking my brain to think of a single terrorist attack in this country committed by an Iranian. If there is one, now would be a good time to mention it! But I can’t find any.

Nor any child rapes, Medicare frauds, heroin dealing or general anti-social behavior making life in America such a pleasure these days.

Even the 9/11 report could tie Iran to the attacks only on the thin reed of several hijackers passing through Iran on their way to the U.S. — where our customs officials welcomed all 19 of them with open arms.

Thirteen of the 19 terrorists had been given Florida drivers’ licenses. If we’re going back to 9/11, maybe Trump should consider dropping a drone on Jeb Bush.

To get killed by an Iranian — or even to be harassed by an Iranian — you have to go the Middle East.

Breaking News: Unrest in the Middle East!

Why is the solution to this problem always to gather up our best young men … and send them to the Middle East?

President George W. Bush tried to pacify that region of the world with the Iraq War. We see how well that worked.

By 2016, Americans were so sick of pointless Middle Eastern wars that even Trump’s ham-handed attacks on President Bush, saying he had “lied” about weapons of mass destruction, led to Trump’s landslide victory in the most hawkish state of the union: South Carolina.

But today, Americans are sitting at home being scared out of their wits by news reports of the “threat” Iran poses to their children, their homes, their commute to work, their very lives.

They can rest easy. It’s more likely that Mars will attack, and we didn’t just kill a Martian general.

Just in terms of American Lives Snuffed Out, the greatest threat to our country, hands down, comes from Mexico. Doesn’t “national security” have something to do with keeping Americans alive?

Mexican heroin killed at least 14,000 Americans last year. Mexican fentanyl and methamphetamine killed about 10,000 to 14,000. Hispanic drunk drivers — Mexicans or other Hispanics given safe passage to the U.S. through Mexico — kill about 3,000 Americans every year.

That’s not to mention the random murders, the Kate Steinles, the cartel and gang killings, and even the occasional mass murder committed by Mexicans in the U.S. (Look up Eduardo Sencion and Salvador Tapia.)

Number of Americans killed in their own country every year by Iranians: 0 that I know of.

Number of Americans killed in their own country every year by Mexicans: 30,000, by conservative estimate.

Can we get a little news coverage of that? Perhaps a short segment, now and then, on the undeclared war right here in our own hemisphere?

No, instead of ever mentioning the unprecedented transformation of our country from the most successful, prosperous nation on Earth to another failed Latin American state, we get nightly updates on Libya, ISIS, Syria and now Iran.

Summary: Wretched, violent primitives are sitting on mounds of oil, which, fortunately, we don’t need anymore, so this is of no interest to you, America.

Cable news networks lure liberals and conservatives into taking opposing sides of conflicts that have less bearing on our lives than one day of illegal immigration.

If Fox News and CNN had been broadcasting from Europe in the 1920s and 1930s, this is how I imagine they’d alert the public to the rising danger of Adolf Hitler:

— January 1933: Hitler appointed chancellor; the Reichstag begins process of transforming Weimar Republic into Nazi Germany.

FOX NEWS HEADLINE: PERU DEFENDS AMAZON RAINFOREST FROM COLOMBIA; MEDIA MELTDOWN OVER PERU’S FIRST LADY

CNN HEADLINE: COLOMBIA DEFENDS AMAZON RAINFOREST FROM PERU; POLL: MOST FOX VIEWERS CAN’T FIND COLOMBIA ON A MAP

— 1933-1939: Hitler reoccupies the Rhineland in violation of the Versailles Treaty, unifies with Austria and annexes parts of Czechoslovakia.

FOX NEWS HEADLINE: BOLIVIA ATTACKS PARAGUAY IN GRAN CHACO REGION

CNN HEADLINE: PARAGUAY ATTACKS BOLIVIA IN GRAN CHACO REGION

— 1939: Hitler invades Poland.

FOX NEWS HEADLINE: CNN REFUSES TO APOLOGIZE FOR FALSE REPORTING ABOUT CHACO WAR

CNN HEADLINE: FOX NEWS HOST LOST IN GRAN CHACO REGION

After 9/11, we went to war with two countries on the other side of the globe, spending trillions of dollars and sacrificing thousands of our greatest Americans because (mostly Saudi) immigrants killed 3,000 Americans. U.S. servicemen and women are still dying to avenge this single mass murder from two decades ago.

Mexico kills at least 10 times that many Americans every year.

Why on Earth are our media –- and our president –- consumed with “Whither Iran?” when hundreds of Americans are dying every day at the hands of the country sitting right next door?

Media Buries Key Fact About ‘White House Whistleblower’ To Help Democrats


Written by Staff Writer September 22, 2019

URL of the original posting site: https://redrightdaily.com/media-buries-key-fact-about-white-house-whistleblower-to-help-democrats/

This whole business about the White House “Whistleblower” has all the makings of fake news Kavanaugh 2.0 that happened last weekend.

According to a report the now famous anonymous whistleblower who supposedly caught President Trump pressuring the head of Ukraine to have Joe Biden’s son investigated didn’t actually hear the conversation.

CNN’s Stephen Collins reported on Friday that the whistleblower “didn’t have direct knowledge of the communications,” citing an official who spoke with him about the case. (SEE BELOW THE ENTIRE CNN ARTICLE. I’VE HIGHLIGHTED THE SECTION)

Instead, the whistleblower’s concerns came in part from learning information that was not obtained during the course of their work, and those details have played a role in the administration’s determination that the complaint didn’t fit the reporting requirements under the intelligence whistleblower law, the official said.

Of course, CNN buried this information 22 paragraphs into the report titled (ironically), “New Revelations deepen Scandal Over Trump Whistleblower Complaint.”

This new fact really complicates accusations that are being made about the President because, this means the “whistleblower” heard the accusations second hand and that their complaint may not even be relevant to what was actually said. To put it simply this “whistleblower” complaint could just be gossip that a person heard from another person. 

This weekend the President defended himself saying, “The Radical Left Democrats and their Fake News Media partners, headed up again by Little Adam Schiff, and batting Zero for 21 against me, are at it again! They think I may have had a “dicey” conversation with a certain foreign leader based on a “highly partisan” whistleblowers. Now that the Democrats and the Fake News Media have gone ‘bust’ on every other of their Witch Hunt schemes, they are trying to start one just as ridiculous as the others, call it the Ukraine Witch Hunt, while at the same time trying to protect Sleepy Joe Biden. Will fail again!”

No doubt CNN buried this fact to try and give more ammunition to Democrats to impeach President Trump unfortunately for them it’s fake news. 

New revelations deepen scandal over Trump whistleblower complaint

(CNN)Washington’s newest scandal, over a whistleblower’s complaint about President Donald Trump, intensified Thursday amid revelations that the White House and Justice Department tried to keep it quiet.

The affair, centering on Trump’s contacts with a leader of a mystery foreign nation — identified in two reports as Ukraine — has also injected a toxic element into relations among the President, the intelligence community and Congress.
It is hard to see how any of this ends well.
Six months after special counsel Robert Mueller shut up shop, the White House again faces suspicion over Trump’s dealings with a foreign power and seems to be taking steps to stop the full story from coming out.
Democrats are rummaging for new skeletons in Trump’s closet and yet another showdown is developing between the executive and Congress that appears almost certain to play out in the courts.
The details of the controversy unleashed when a whistleblower sounded the alarm about the President are complex, disputed according to political allegiance and largely not public.
The Washington Post and The New York Times reported Thursday that the contacts at issue between Trump and the foreign leader involve Ukraine. In the past, some of Trump’s supporters, including his lawyer Rudy Giuliani, have urged the Kiev government to open investigations that the President could use to raise suspicions about his political rivals, including Joe Biden. In a heated exchange with CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Thursday night, Giuliani denied asking Ukraine to investigate the former vice president, before admitting he had done just that.
The US and Ukraine were in discussions about $250 million in military aid to Kiev this summer that had been delayed by the White House. Giuliani said he didn’t know anything about the package, but that if Trump had used it as leverage to benefit himself politically in any way he would not have done anything wrong.
“The reality is that the President of the United States, whoever he is, has every right to tell the president of another country you better straighten out the corruption in your country if you want me to give you a lot of money. If you’re so damn corrupt that you can’t investigate allegations — our money is going to get squandered,” Giuliani said.

Trump attempted to discredit the whistleblower as “highly partisan” in a series of tweets Friday morning, echoing remarks made by Giuliani on Thursday night. The President said his comments to “a certain foreign leader” were “pitch perfect.”

Trump tweeted: “Strange that with so many other people hearing or knowing of the perfectly fine and respectful conversation, that they would not have also come forward. Do you know the reason why they did not? Because there was nothing said wrong, it was pitch perfect!”
Trump spoke to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on July 25. There is so far no public evidence that the whistleblower’s complaint pertains to this conversation or that there was any abuse of power by Trump. The White House later lifted the hold on aid.
But the potential ramifications of this new storm are already becoming clear and the risks facing the President, the intelligence community and Democrats in Congress are climbing by the day.

Disturbing possibilities

There must at least be a possibility that Trump abused his power or committed a grievous ethical lapse in dealing with the foreign leader.
His defense was not exactly reassuring, considering some of the wild comments the President has made in the company of rogue counterparts such as Russia’s Vladimir Putin and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.
“Is anybody dumb enough to believe that I would say something inappropriate with a foreign leader while on such a potentially ‘heavily populated’ call?” Trump tweeted on Thursday.
CNN reported Thursday that the intelligence community inspector general suggested to the House Intelligence Committee that the complaint raised concerns about multiple actions.
He would not say whether those instances involved Trump, sources familiar with the closed-door briefing told CNN.
The inspector general, Michael Atkinson, was legally unable to discuss the complaint itself, since Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire has declined to hand it over.
Democrats say he is compelled to provide the complaint under whistleblower legislation, and House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff said his committee may take legal action if it isn’t turned over.
The Washington Post on Wednesday said the complaint referenced a “promise” Trump allegedly made to the unidentified leader. CNN has not confirmed that aspect of the controversy.
The whistleblower didn’t have direct knowledge of the communications, an official briefed on the matter told CNN. Instead, the whistleblower’s concerns came in part from learning information that was not obtained during the course of their work, and those details have played a role in the administration’s determination that the complaint didn’t fit the reporting requirements under the intelligence whistleblower law, the official said.
It is hard to know the potential exposure faced by the President.
But given the sensitivity of the issue, the complaint is likely to have come from an official familiar with the scope of presidential power. And it was signed off as “urgent and credible” by the inspector general — a Trump appointee — who thought Congress should know in line with whistleblowing laws.
The implication of such a fact pattern is staggering and opens up the potential of serious misconduct inside the White House — despite Trump’s denials of any wrongdoing.

A President maligned?

If, on the other hand, the alleged behavior by the President does not reach such a bar, the political fallout will be considerable. Trump, acting within his wide Article Two constitutional powers, may have been maligned and there will be accusations that the whistleblower — though moving within the scope of the law — will have overreached.
The President’s suspicion of the intelligence community, which he sees as a “Deep State” bent on overthrowing him, will grow.
If a president cannot trust his own spies, and thinks they are working against him and not the country’s enemies, then America’s national security will be harmed.
The President’s allies are already arguing that the controversy is simply another ruse by House Democrats to damage Trump.
“He has very wide authority, really unchecked authority, to talk to world leaders about anything he deems appropriate as he is representing the United States of America,” said Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union.”If this were able to go forward, any staffer in an agency could constantly hobble a Democratic President, duly elected.”
“This is an unconstitutional argument,” Schlapp said on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360.”
Of course, the White House could clear all this up by explaining the contents of the alleged contacts between the President and the foreign leader. But it is taking the opposite tack.
According to three CNN sources, the White House and the Justice Department advised the director of national intelligence that the complaint isn’t governed by laws covering intelligence whistleblowers.
The revelation is the first known evidence of the White House’s involvement in the standoff. There may be an argument that the content of the President’s communications or an official’s impressions of them sent to Congress are subject to executive privilege.
But the administration’s resistance to scrutiny is already fueling suspicions of a cover-up.
And it throws new light on the role of Attorney General William Barr — who has been accused by critics of shaping special counsel Robert Mueller’s damning revelations to the President’s advantage.
Barr, who served in the same role for President George H.W. Bush, advocates a theory of expansive presidential power, one reason why he has become perhaps Trump’s favorite Cabinet member.

Whistleblowers exposed

House Democrats argue that the White House is yet again adopting a model of presidential power that threatens to tear the checks and balances of the US system to shreds.
Schiff effectively argued that the approach taken by the administration could lead to the quashing of whistleblower claims in the government.
That could lead down a road of power without accountability and in theory impunity for any presidential wrongdoing.
“The impact of this opinion is that if the Department of Justice decides that any employee of the intelligence committee comes forward, follows the law, follows the process, is nonetheless outside the process, they’re not protected,” the California Democrat said.
“Which not only means this whistleblower is not protected, it means no whistleblower is protected. That is the danger of the DOJ’s misinterpretation of the law.”
The fresh confrontation between the White House and the Congress is certain to fuel the frustration of Democrats at the White House’s efforts to evade scrutiny.
And it will add momentum to claims of many grass roots liberals and a growing corps of House Democrats who do not share House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s reluctance to proceed with impeachment.

The CIA Scolds CNN Over “Misguided Speculation”

CNN was trying to come down on their favorite target President Trump by claiming he mishandled classified information. The Fake News Network then went on to say that Trump’s actions led to the extraction of a spy within the Russian Government. The CIA saw CNN’s lies and publically berated them as they were wrong on multiple levels.

CNN’s narrative that the Central Intelligence Agency makes life-or-death decisions based on anything other than objective analysis and sound collection is simply false,”CIA Director for Public Affairs Brittany Bramell said in the agency’s statement.
Bramwell continued: “Misguided speculation that the President’s handling of our nation’s most sensitive intelligence — which he has access to each and every day — drove an alleged exfiltration operation is inaccurate.”

Watch The Clip Below. 

The New York Times also contradicted CNN explaining that if anyone was responsible it was the media not the Trump Administration.

“Former intelligence officials said there was no public evidence that Mr. Trump directly endangered the source, and other current American officials insisted that media scrutiny of the agency’s sources alone was the impetus for the extraction.”
“The government had indicated that the source existed long before Mr. Trump took office, first in formally accusing Russia of interference in October 2016 and then when intelligence officials declassified parts of their assessment about the interference campaign for public release in January 2017. News agencies, including NBC, began reporting around that time about Mr. Putin’s involvement in the election sabotage and on the C.I.A.’s possible sources for the assessment.”

CNN’s latest slight was not only inaccurate it was also reckless.

In their fervor to blame President Trump for mishandling classified information, CNN potentially risked lives,” a source familiar with the matter told The Daily Wire. “They had multiple on-the-record quotes from Administration officials telling them. Their story was not only wrong, but irresponsible and dangerous, and CNN decided to run with it anyway.”

So CNN in an effort to bash Trump endangered American intelligence agents. Maybe it’s time for CNN to rethink what they report as their fake news is starting to become life-threatening.

 

CNN Desperate: Hires Conservative to Save Political Face


Reported By Tiffany Layne |

#TeamKJ; #KevinJackson

CNN is desperate to save face, or cover their ass. Either way, they’ve done the unthinkable.

Honestly, I’d love to be a fly on the wall when CNN told staffers a conservative was coming on board. Ironically, CNN felt the need to make this drastic change before heading into the 2020 election, after spending two years basically bragging about their left-bias. It’s an interesting strategy to say the least.

Jewish World Review writes:

Sarah Isgur, a longtime Republican spokesperson, will join the network to help direct its political coverage, including the Democratic primaries and Trump’s reelection campaign, the network confirmed on Tuesday.
The hiring, first reported by Politico, is unusual for a number of reasons. Isgur hasn’t worked in journalism, and has no experience managing a TV news operation. She has spent the bulk of her career as a Republican advocate, working in behalf of such candidates as Mitt Romney, Ted Cruz and Carly Fiorina and the Republican National Committee.
Most recently she was the spokeswoman for the Justice Department, under Attorney General Jeff Sessions, whom Trump forced out in November.

Is the Trump Hate Wearing Thin?

The Leftist media has been a problem for Republicans for a long time. However, since Trump’s campaign, CNN has become the foremost offender, spreading a false narrative at every turn. Even when Trump successes are undeniable, CNN looks for a way to ignore the triumph or give someone else the credit.

The most laughable attempt happens when CNN pretends Obama’s actions created Trump’s economy. Of course, anyone with a brain the size of a marble knows Obama destroyed our economy. And Trump more than restored it.

Yet, CNN repeatedly feeds viewers a negative narrative about Donald Trump. But unlike other presidents, Trump tackles the criticism head-on.

Tense White House Coverage

CNN’s White House coverage is inexplicably dramatic. No one can forget the moment Jim Acosta’s gross misconduct led to suspended press credentials. Acosta thought his behavior would be overlooked, but my grandfather used to have a saying. “Don’t take a knife to a gun-fight,” which is exactly what Acosta did when he challenged Donald Trump.

Even though Acosta’s credentials were restored, Trump quickly put measures in place to permanently rid the White House of Acosta’s biased coverage.

But even when CNN is called out for spreading vicious lies, they don’t care. In fact, CNN’s Jeff Zucker once bragged that insults from Donald Trump boost ratings.

Last year, CNN ignored a wake-up call.

As Kevin Jackson pointed out:

CNN didn’t make the Top Ten networks in primetime viewers for the week of March 6, according to the latest report from Nielsen Media Research.

It was the first time CNN felt the consequences of their shoddy reporting. Kevin went on to write:

Sure all presidents create news, but nobody does it better than Trump.
Even when the president blasts CNN as “fake news” in their ongoing feud, that’s news. And as President Trump proves, putting the network on blast has bad consequences…for the offending network.
In the latest Neilsen rankings, CNN ranked No. 11 in total prime time viewers, losing to No. 3 ranked MSNBC for the 7th week in a row. The top five networks in prime time were Fox News, ESPN, MSNBC, HGTV, and Discovery, respectively.
Speaking to the Wall Street Journal recently, Zucker admitted that critics accusing the network of mainstream media liberal bias were accurate. He commented that this year CNN has been striving to make changes to be more fair and balanced.
“I think it was a legitimate criticism of CNN that it was a little too liberal…We have added many more middle-of-the-road conservative voices to an already strong stable of liberal voices.”
Apparently, CNN no longer boasts about their disdain for President Trump. I suspect you will see Zucker fall on the sword a few more times this year before his fate finally sinks in.

We expected the tide at CNN to start turning once ratings plummeted.

But apparently they needed an entire year for it to fully sink in. The mainstream media is no longer held in high regard. Instead, the network is the butt of many jokes.

As for Acosta, he can barely say White House without crying. Just last week, he was on air, whining about the supporters of Donald Trump. Apparently, he claimed his life was in jeopardy. Of course, that too was #FakeNews.

Obviously Acosta isn’t the only CNN offender.

We could write ten chapters on Don Lemon and his scandalous stupidity. But in the interest of time, let’s just say Lemon doesn’t ever give the President the benefit of the doubt. He takes every possible opportunity to jab the president, sometimes storming off stage in a fit a drama queen rage.

I’m guessing these antics are no longer enough to fuel ratings at CNN. The public is growing tired of the mainstream media bias. Thus, CNN was forced to take drastic measures. Now, with Isgur on board, CNN’s narrative will be forced to include a more balanced perspective.

It’s a sad day when offering the truth is considered drastic, but CNN didn’t earn the #FakeNews moniker for their honesty. It will be refreshing, or at least entertaining, to see what happens when a conservative shakes things up.

Watch Gladys Knight Smile as She Takes Apart Each of Don Lemon’s SJW Questions


Reported By C. Douglas Golden February 5, 2019 at 6:29am

If you’d forgotten how great Gladys Knight was, Super Bowl Sunday was a reminder of why she’s known as the “Empress of Soul” — and you don’t get royal monikers without earning them. It wasn’t just that the Atlanta-based R&B legend was singing the national anthem. It was she nailed it, absolutely nailed it. I may be suffering from a bit of recency bias, but I’d easily put it in the top five of Super Bowl album renditions. It wasn’t Whitney Houston in 1991 or Jennifer Hudson in 2009 — but for me, anyhow, it was close.

Sadly, even singing the national anthem is a political statement in a Super Bowl where every major performer was asked by protesters to stay away due to the fact Colin Kaepernick isn’t in the league. We could debate the merits of Kaepernick’s absence from the NFL endlessly, but the idea that every musician of note should boycott the game is a rather farcical request.

Knight had already been less apologetic and dithering than halftime headliner Maroon 5, which made her even more of a target for social justice warriors to take out their Kaepernick-related frustrations on musicians. On Friday night, she appeared on “CNN Tonight” with host Don Lemon to explain her reasoning, and it was almost as good as her version of the anthem on Sunday.

The show can be risky territory for anyone, particularly since Lemon is fond of taking the SJW line on almost anything. And yet Knight handled it perfectly.

Lemon, who’s made no secret of the fact he doesn’t really buy that Kaepernick isn’t in the NFL because of his talents and other problems he presents, hit Knight with a quote from Kaepernick attorney Mark Geragos, who’s been vociferously attacking any musical act that dared appear at the big game.

In an interview after Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine discussed his decision to perform, Geragos accused him of being an ideological scab: “If you’re going to cross this ideological or intellectual picket line, then own it, and Adam Levine certainly isn’t owning it,” Geragos said.

Lemon played another clip of Geragos discussing that ideological picket line and what she thought about it.

“People are going to have their opinions. You know, about whatever,” Knight said, smiling.

“And all I can deal with, all I can deal with right now is what my heart says,” she continued. “I believe in fairness. I believe in truth. I believe in all of those things, and as far as this is concerned, I grew up with the national anthem.

“We used to sing it in school before school started. We used to say prayers in school before school started, and we just don’t have that anymore and I’m just — I’m just hoping that it will be about our country and how we treat each other and being the great country that we are.”

When asked if the criticisms could hurt her professionally, she was similarly dismissive.

RELATED: Did You Know Taxpayers Were Forced To Donate $700 Million to Sunday Night’s Super Bowl Venue?

“You know what? Nothing good comes easy,” Knight said. “And I would hope that they will understand, as I do, that we have a better way to do this than to be angry and why is he doing this or why ain’t she doing that, you know?.

“For me, it’s just for me about respect. If we start denying the anthem, there are so many people that have died for our country and there are so many people in my family that are still part of, you know, just standing for the country, they are in the services and that kind of thing, and just to not say that if you really listen to the lyrics of the beginning, you’ll understand that. We have fought hard for a long time and not just in wars. I have protested myself.”

Knight went on to discuss her personal experiences during the civil rights era — in other words, disavowing the idea that protest need involve disrupting the Super Bowl.

In  short, she absolutely schooled Lemon — both on his questions and the real meaning of social justice. Knight had made a similar defense of the anthem in January when the pressure to boycott was at its most intense.

“I understand that Mr. Kaepernick is protesting two things, and they are police violence and injustice,” Knight said in a statement then.

“It is unfortunate that our National Anthem has been dragged into this debate when the distinctive senses of the National Anthem and fighting for justice should each stand alone,” the statement said.

“I am here today and on Sunday, Feb. 3 to give the Anthem back its voice, to stand for that historic choice of words, the way it unites us when we hear it and to free it from the same prejudices and struggles I have fought long and hard for all my life, from walking back hallways, from marching with our social leaders, from using my voice for good — I have been in the forefront of this battle longer than most of those voicing their opinions to win the right to sing our country’s Anthem on a stage as large as the Super Bowl LIII.”

In the end, she sang the anthem beautifully and didn’t use it to make a political statement against America or the flag. When grilled by Don Lemon — including the implied threat that her career could suffer — she was pitch-perfect, just as she was on Sunday.

Our hats are off to you, Gladys Knight, and may future Super Bowl performers evince even a fraction of your grace and talent.

Police Report Is Game-Changer in Case of Gay, Black Actor Attacked by ‘Trump Supporters’


Reported By C. Douglas Golden | January 30, 2019 at 9:29am

When gay black actor Jussie Smollett said he was attacked by white men who yelled some stuff about “MAGA,” it didn’t take long for the liberal rage machine to mobilize.

“The star of the tv show ‘Empire,’ Jussie Smollett, was attacked by two assailants early Monday morning in Downtown Chicago according to Chicago Police Department Spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi,” CNN reported.

“Smollett, 36, was walking on the 300 block of E. North Lower Water Street when two men approached him and ‘gained his attention by yelling out racial and homophobic slurs towards him,’ Guglielmi says in a statement.

“Two unknown offenders — it is unknown if they were male or female — then attacked Smollett, hitting him in the face and then poured an unknown chemical substance on him.

“At some point during the scuffle, one of the offenders wrapped a rope around the victim’s neck and then both offenders fled the scene, the statement reads.”

Smollett took himself to Northwestern Hospital, where the incident was reported to police, according to CBS Chicago.

There was plenty of condemnation to go around, particularly after TMZ reported that the attackers had shouted “this is MAGA country.” Two of the outraged included black Democratic senators, who just by chance, happen to either be running for president or widely expected to be running for president.

There was one problem with this “modern-day lynching” narrative: None of that “MAGA country” stuff was originally mentioned to police and they’re having trouble corroborating the fact that the attack even happened.

“According to the victim, the offenders’ faces were concealed,” a police spokesman said, according to Reason. “We have no record indicating that (they shouted ‘MAGA’), we only have record of them shouting racial and homophobic slurs at him.”

A statement from Chicago Police confirmed that, Reason reported.

“We have no record of the ‘MAGA Country’ comment,” the statement said, according to Reason. “We have racial and homophobic comments documented.”

CNN reported that when police heard about the accusation and called the actor, he “relayed it to detectives in a supplemental interview.”

But then again, there’s some doubt as to whether the attack even happened.

In an area that has a “very high density” of surveillance cameras, according to the police spokesman’s statement, there is not a single image of an attack like the one Smollett described.

“A Chicago police spokesperson tells CNN that investigators canvassed the neighborhood where the reported attack occurred on actor Jussie Smollett and have found no still images or video from security cameras of the incident,” CNN reported.

“The only image of Smollett police obtained from security cameras was inside Subway Sandwich shop near the location of the reported crime, the actor was standing alone.”

For all I know, Smollett really was attacked by bigots who shouted the phrase “MAGA country,” and ambitious, Democratic politicians who are calling this a “a modern-day lynching” are absolutely justified. But here’s the thing — I’m going to wait to see whether or not that’s the case, as everyone else should have.

It hasn’t even been a fortnight since the Covington Catholic incident, and the lesson we were should have taken away from that “teachable moment” — be careful dealing with stories that confirm your cultural narrative — has been lost.

No fewer than two senators with eyes on the 2020 Democratic nomination have taken this accusation as gospel because they can use it as an illustration of supposed Trump-fueled hate coursing through the country, even though no arrests have been made and the evidence is scanty. If this turns out to be a hoax, Sens. Booker and Harris own this, as do the legion of liberals who tweeted this out without waiting for a fuller investigation.

Even if this turns out to be true, what they did was supremely irresponsible. That these two individuals are in the Senate is bad enough. Just imagine one of them in the White House, backed by a legion of people who think Donald Trump supporters are irresponsible bigots, but are willing to blame white Donald Trump supporters for a hate crime without any charges or even direct physical evidence. It will make the Obama years look like pure reason.

Seventeen Burned Bodies Appear Near Border as Democrats Say We Don’t Need a Wall


Reported By Ben Marquis | January 10, 2019 at 4:25pm

URL of the original posting site: https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/seventeen-burned-bodies-appear-near-border-democrats-say-dont-need-wall/

Democrats and the media immediately set about disputing Trump’s labeling of the border situation as a “crisis,” part of their overtly biased effort to instantly “fact-check” every word or statistic uttered by the president in the brief speech, and — coincidentally? — all seemed to arrive at the same conclusion: There is no real crisis at the border, only a “manufactured crisis” brought about purposefully by Trump’s actions, or some such nonsense like that.

Of course, to follow along with the media’s bouncing ball on this one, everyone must ignore the fact that the same liberal media loudly trumpeted the “crisis” at the border in 2013 and 2014 — when they were supporting comprehensive immigration reform and amnesty for illegal immigrants — or their hollering about a “crisis” on the border through much of 2017 and 2018 when Trump began to crack down on illegal border crossings and deportations ticked up.

In truth, however, the only thing “manufactured” about all of this is the Democrats ‘obstinate opposition to the president and their refusal to acknowledge the basic and undeniable facts of what is occurring on and around the porous and lightly defended southern border.

Case in point, Reuters reported on Thursday that at least 20 dead bodies — 17 of which had been badly burned — were discovered on Wednesday in the Mexican city of Ciudad Miguel Aleman, which is located a mere 56 miles across the Rio Grande River from the U.S. border city of McAllen, Texas, where President Trump visited with U.S. Border Patrol agents and other officials on Thursday.

Mexican authorities are reportedly investigating what has all the appearances of a deadly battle between members of two rival gangs in the area, gangs that routinely play in a role in the illicit cross-border excursions that bring illegal aliens, criminals, drugs, weapons and even terrorists into this nation.

The suspected gang-related massacre even drew a mention from Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador at his daily news conference on Thursday, and though he didn’t offer up much in the way of specifics, he did say that security officials would provide more information at a later date or time.

Reuters noted that according to one Mexican security official, five burned-out vehicles were also discovered along with the 20 dead bodies, though the outlet noted that a separate Mexican security official had reportedly counted as many as 21 dead bodies at the scene. The grisly scene was located in the Tamaulipas region of Mexico, one of the more violent states in that nation that has been controlled by dangerous criminal cartels and gangs for years. Those groups exert a great deal of control over drug and human trafficking across the border in that region, and are well-known for running extortion rackets on local residents and exploiting migrants passing through the area for whatever can be gained.

When not engaged in those border-related crimes, the cartels and gangs are fighting violently among each other or waging war against Mexican security forces, violence that has claimed tens of thousands of lives — some innocent, some not so much — over the years.

Obviously, incidents like this one — and this bloody incident is far from an isolated occurrence — are what President Trump is referencing when he speaks of the “crisis” at the border while demanding Congress appropriate the necessary funds to construct a border wall where needed and to increase border security measures in other ways.

Yet, based solely on their reflexive opposition to all things Trump, many talking heads in the liberal media staunchly refuse to acknowledge as a “crisis” what their own colleagues are quietly reporting on a near-daily basis.

Indeed, some in the media have even adopted a sort of “Don’t believe your lying eyes” attitude when it comes to their anti-Trump reporting on the border, as evidenced by a ridiculous tweet from CNN’s Jim Acosta that actually seemed to prove the president’s point about how necessary and effective a border wall truly is.

In several other tweets after that, Acosta hyped up how safe the border town of McAllen is — while studiously ignoring the obvious fact that McAllen is safe because it has a border wall and other barriers obstructing those who would illicitly cross over.

Unfortunately, the wall and other barriers along the border in the McAllen region that keep it so safe only extend for so long, and eventually give way to mere chain-link fencing or nothing at all, meaning those who wish to cross the border illegally need only walk around the end to do so. Anyone with common sense and intellectual honesty can plainly see that and realize Trump is absolutely correct to want to address this security crisis post haste.

Filmmaker Embedded in Caravan Gets to the Truth. Migrants Themselves Expose US Media as Total Liars


Reported By Malachi Bailey } November 15, 2018 at 2:16pm

A filmmaker traveled to Mexico and did what the U.S. media didn’t do: he witnessed the migrant caravan for himself and exposed the truth.nFilmmaker Ami Horowitz went to Oaxaca in southern Mexico to uncover the truth about the migrant caravan.

The caravan, consisting of thousands of Honduran illegal immigrants, has caught the attention of the media as it heads toward the United States. However, much of the coverage consists of hand-waving from the left-wing establishment media, which claims the caravan consists of peaceful families just trying to escape violence.

After visiting the caravan for himself, Horowitz came to a different conclusion.

“Despite the framing of the caravan as being full of women and children, the reality on the ground is quite different. Approximately 90 to 95 percent of the migrants were male,” Horowitz said in a Twitter video.

Last month, BBC wrote that “The migrants, mostly from Honduras, say they are fleeing violence and poverty, and include women and children.” That’s a grossly misleading statement for a caravan consisting of over 90 percent men.

The establishment media also continuously repeated the narrative that the caravan is made up of people seeking to escape violence.

“We do know that many migrants have said they are fleeing terrible gang violence, with some fearing for their lives,” The Guardian claimed last month.

However, Horowitz discovered that the migrants are actually seeking employment when they illegally enter the United States.

“The major narrative being pushed by the press has been that the migrants are leaving Honduras because they are facing extreme violence and that their lives are under constant threat,” Horowitz said.

To discover if this was true, the filmmaker asked several migrants, “Why are you coming to America?”

“To get a job,” one responded. “To work,” said another.

It’s clear that these migrants, who are mostly male, are economic migrants seeking American jobs. They aren’t “women and children who are “fleeing violence.”

It’s completely absurd that the truth had to come from a filmmaker investigating the caravan for himself because the establishment media is too busy peddling lies and misinformation.

Former Seal Drops the MOAB on Don Lemon, Reveals the Real ‘Enemy of the People’


Reported By Ben Marquis | November 6, 2018 at 9:08am

Last week, CNN anchor Don Lemon issued what can best be described as arguably one of the most hypocritical, nonsensical, contradictory and racist statements of all time … and not by just a little bit, either. Speaking with fellow CNN anchor Chris Cuomo about their mutual nemesis — President Donald Trump and his legions of supporters — Lemon said, “So we have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them.”

That statement is contradictory and hypocritical because Lemon literally demonized “white men” after he had just called on everyone to “stop demonizing people.” And it was thoroughly racist in that it deemed a certain segment of society the “biggest terror threat” to our nation simply because of its gender and skin color.

Lemon received quite a bit of pushback for that remark, but none was quite as exquisite as that offered up by a former U.S. Navy SEAL combat veteran and author named Ephraim Mattos.

In a Facebook post, Mattos dropped an absolute MOAB of truth on the CNN host, who was quite literally living up to the disparaging “enemy of the people” moniker that has been hoisted on the “fake news” media by President Trump … a moniker few in the media have adequately been able to shake loose, as it suits quite a few of them rather well by virtue of their own actions and words.

Mattos wrote on Facebook, “After surviving three wars, a gunshot wound, a near fatal drowning, a failed parachute, Taliban ambushes, ISIS snipers, mortars, mine-fields, suicide bombers and laying down my life for the cause of freedom while fighting shoulder-to-shoulder with my brother Arabs, Asians, Blacks, Hispanics, Christians, Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Animists, and Atheists I have now returned home to the USA where a CNN host has labeled me as a radicalized right wing terrorist simply because of my gender and the color of my skin.”

The veteran proceeded to describe how “conservative white men” had fought and died for freedom for centuries on behalf of others, taking on the elite British Army to found the Republic, taking on fellow Americans in order to free blacks held in slavery, rescuing Europe from utter disaster — and later, fascism — in World War I and again in World War II.

“We have fought for freedom and liberty for generations and we continue to do so today alongside all of our brothers and sisters regardless of their race or religion,” wrote Mattos, before offering up something for voters to consider prior to Election Day.

“In the early 1930s, Hitler said the same thing about the Jews that Don Lemon of CNN just said about white men. This is the true face of the Democratic Party. First they enslaved and killed blacks, and now they use them to spew hatred and lies against the very people who have fought for generations to free them and uplift them,” he wrote.

Mattos continued and made an incredible point that will no doubt be lost on Lemon and others like him: “I have referred to myself as a ‘white male’ in the previous sentences multiple times, but I must make it clear that I identify as simply ‘American,’ not as ‘white’ or ‘male’ or ‘Republican.’

“Although blatantly racist and hateful, do not let Don Lemon’s ignorant words drive you into viewing yourself only by your race and religion,” he added. “Identity politics does not lead to freedom. It only leads to hatred and division and an ‘us vs. them’ mentality.

“If CNN does not fire Don Lemon immediately, it only goes to show that they are truly the ‘enemy of the people,’” Mattos concluded.

The post got noticed on social media.

CNN has taken no disciplinary action against Lemon, so the phrase remains quite apt and fitting of the network and its bigoted and racist hosts. The liberal media has made it abundantly clear that they don’t like or appreciate being labeled an “enemy of the people” by the president or his supporters, and their pushback against the implications of the term is entirely understandable, as it casts them in exceptionally poor light.

Unfortunately for them, far too often they say and do things that an honest-to-goodness “enemy of the people” would say and do, such as labeling whole swaths of the nation as “racist” or a “terror threat” simply because of skin color and genitalia, and not for any specific deeds or words that would earn such derisive labels.

Here is a reminder for the media, once again:

If you don’t want to be labeled as an “enemy of the people,” it would well-advised for you to stop acting like an “enemy of the people,” lest you prove the label correct … as Don Lemon has so sickeningly done.

THE FOLLOWING IS THE COMPLETE FACEBOOK POSTING OF EPHRAIM MATTOS:

Well, it has officially happened…

“So we have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them.” — Don Lemon on CNN (October 31, 2018)

After surviving three wars, a gunshot wound, a near fatal drowning, a failed parachute, Taliban ambushes, ISIS snipers, mortars, mine-fields, suicide bombers and laying down my life for the cause of freedom while fighting shoulder-to-shoulder with my brother Arabs, Asians, Blacks, Hispanics, Christians, Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Animists, and Atheists I have now returned home to the USA where a CNN host has labeled me as a radicalized right wing terrosist simply because of my gender and the color of my skin.

I represent just one of the hundreds of thousands of conservative white men who have fought to preserve freedom in this great Nation and in other nations. My forefathers are the 3% who founded this Republic against the might of the British Army. It was white Conservative men who died by the tens of thousands after charging into our southern states to free our black brothers from the slavery imposed on them by the Liberal left. We were the ones who acknowledged that women have a right to vote. We held the line in WWI and charged the beaches of Normandy in WWII. We have fought for freedom and liberty for generations and we continue to do so today alongside all of our brothers and sisters regardless of their race or religion.

In the early 1930s, Hitler said the same thing about the Jews that Don Lemon of CNN just said about white men. This is the true face of the Democratic Party. First they enslaved and killed blacks, and now they use them to spew hatred and lies against the very people who have fought for generations to free them and uplift them.

Remember that when you go to vote.

One final thought: To make a point, I have referred to myself as a “white male” in the previous sentences multiple times, but I must make it clear that I identify as simply “American,” not as “white” or “male” or “Republican.”

Although blatantly racist and hateful, do not let Don Lemon’s ignorant words drive you into viewing yourself only by your race and religion. Identity politics does not lead to freedom. It only leads to hatred and division and an “us vs. them” mentality.

If CNN does not fire Don Lemon immediately, it only goes to show that they are truly the “enemy of the people.”

Black Leaders Issue Powerful Message to CNN over Don Lemon’s Anti-White Comments

CNN host Don Lemon is facing continued backlash over comments he made earlier this week regarding the threat he claimed one group in particular poses to homeland security. Lemon drew fire specifically for declaring that the “biggest terror threat in this country are white men.”

Among those who have since publicly denounced Lemon’s comments are three co-chairmen of the Project 21 Black Leadership Network, an organization sponsored by the National Center for Public Policy Research, a conservative think tank. A statement from Horace Cooper, Bishop Council Nedd II and Stacy Washington called on CNN bosses to take action in light of the on-air proclamation.

“Within a space of five seconds, CNN’s Don Lemon went from saying we shouldn’t demonize people to broadly labeling white men as our nation’s ‘biggest terror threat,’” they wrote. “That’s not responsible journalism. This cannot stand.”

The trio went on to cite the network president’s recent statement denouncing President Donald Trump’s frequent criticism of CNN and the news media in general. Following a bomb scare at CNN’s New York City headquarters last month, Jeff Zucker issued a statement describing a “total and complete lack of understanding at the White House about the seriousness of their continued attacks on the media.”

Zucker called on Trump and White House press secretary Sarah Sanders to “understand their words matter,” and concluded that “they have shown no comprehension of that” so far in the administration’s first term.

Cooper, Nedd and Washington wrote that Zucker should apply his own standard to his network’s hosts.

“CNN President Jeff Zucker recently called out the White House for its criticism of the media, saying President Trump doesn’t comprehend the importance of the words he uses,” the statement concluded. “It’s time for Zucker to put his own house in order — starting with explaining how Don Lemon’s outrageous statement can stand in light of Zucker’s call for civility.”

Lemon addressed the controversy in a segment Wednesday evening, using data from the Government Accountability Office that indicates right-wing extremists have been responsible for more deadly attacks on U.S. soil than left-leaning groups.

“Earlier this week, I made some comments about that in a conversation with Chris (Cuomo),” he said. “I said that the biggest terror threat in this country comes from radicals on the far right, primarily white men. That angered some people. But let’s put emotion aside and look at the cold hard facts. The evidence is overwhelming.”

The information he referenced showed 62 separate attacks staged by terrorists believed to hold radical right-wing views have caused a total of 106 deaths since the 9/11 terror attacks in 2001. Comparing that to a much lower total assigned to left-wing extremist groups, Lemon declared that there was one deadly leftist attack “for every eight deadly attacks by right-wing extremists.”

Islamist extremists were responsible for a total of 119 terror-related deaths in 23 attacks over the same period, according to the GAO report.

Don Lemon said what about white men?



Authored by Dr. Michael L. Brown – Guest Columnist | Thursday, November 1, 2018 | http://www.askdrbrown.org/

Michael BrownA liberal like CNN’s Don Lemon will hardly be held accountable by an overwhelmingly leftist media – whereas a conservative will be eaten alive for perceived insensitive or racially charged comments.


What if Sean Hannity had said on Fox News that “the biggest terror threat in this country is black men, most of them radicalized to the left, and we have to start doing something about them”? The uproar would be immediate, unrelenting, and intense. And it would continue until Fox handed over Hannity’s head on a platter.

Don Lemon (CNN)Of course, Hannity said no such thing. But CNN’s Don Lemon (right) said this:

“We have to stop demonizing people and realize that the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them.”

As for the uproar – well, where is it?

As for CNN’s response, “A CNN spokeswoman said Wednesday neither Lemon nor the network would speak more about it.” No big deal. Nothing to talk about. Controversy over.

Yet a few days earlier, Megyn Kelly’s blackface comment was the straw that broke the camel’s back, leading to her firing by NBC. What a contrast!

If her comment was offensive, his was beyond offensive. His was off the charts in terms of broadness and ugliness. His was off the charts in terms of being dangerous. Yes, he said, “we have to start doing something about them.”

Why the glaring double standard?

But we actually see this double standard virtually every single day. It is a standard based on bias rather than balance and on politics rather than parity. What would have happened if Laura Ingraham claimed that Barack Obama “radicalized so many more people than ISIS ever did.” What would happen to her career? To my knowledge, she said no such thing.

CNN logoBut just this week, GQ’s Julia Ioffe said on CNN that “this president has radicalized so many more people than ISIS ever did.”

To his credit, CNN’s David Urban responded immediately, saying, “That’s just…it’s unconscionable for you to say that.”

Jake Tapper, however, offered little resistance, and Ioffe’s apology did not exactly hit things out of the park.

The double standards continue.

What if, on the anniversary of 9/11, Mark Levin said that Joe Biden “has done more damage to the dream of America than any foreign adversary ever could.” Could you imagine the outrage and calls for him to be taken off the air?

MSNBC logoBut on September 10, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough wrote that President Trump “has done more damage to the dream of America than any foreign adversary ever could.” Have you noticed that he has not skipped a beat on MSNBC since penning those unfortunate words?

And for all those who attack President Trump’s immigration policy, I assume you disagree with these words, correct? To quote exactly:

“We simply cannot allow people to pour into the U.S., undetected, undocumented, unchecked and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently, lawfully to become immigrants in this country.”

There’s only one problem. These are not the words of Donald Trump. They are the words of Senator Barack Obama, spoken in 2005. Even Snopes.com, a left-leaning fact-checking website, verifies this.

Yet Obama was praised for expressing these sentiments while Trump is condemned for expressing similar views.

How about this immigration quote? Surely Trump is a bigot for saying such things:

“But there are some areas that the federal government should not leave and should address and address strongly. One of these areas is the problem of illegal immigration. After years of neglect, this administration has taken a strong stand to stiffen the protection of our borders. We are increasing border controls by 50 percent. We are increasing inspections to prevent the hiring of illegal immigrants. And tonight, I announce I will sign an executive order to deny federal contracts to businesses that hire illegal immigrants.

“Let me be very clear about this: We are still a nation of immigrants; we should be proud of it. We should honor every legal immigrant here, working hard to become a new citizen. But we are also a nation of laws.”

Horrible, you say? This is why you’re a Democrat rather than a Republican? Well, these are not Trump’s words either. Rather, they are the words of President Bill Clinton in his 1996 State of the Union address.

Did I say double standard? Did I say that we judge things by bias more than by balance?

But the sword cuts both ways (and here is where I will offend many of my fellow-conservatives).

It’s true that the TV and news media are overwhelmingly leftist. And that means that a liberal like Don Lemon will hardly be held accountable, whereas a conservative will be eaten alive for perceived insensitive or racially charged comments.

But if we are to be honest with ourselves, we would have to acknowledge that the very things we condone when they’re on “our side” are the things we condemn when they’re on the “other side.” We have our double standards too.

If you don’t believe me, try this little exercise. If you are a fellow-conservative and fellow-Trump supporter, imagine how would you feel about Donald Trump if he was to the left of Bernie Sanders politically and ideologically. Would you appreciate his deprecating tweets? Would you excuse his exaggerations and misstatements? Would you consider him a champion or a bully?

So, my appeal is simple and succinct. Let’s call balls and strikes fairly. Let’s hold the sword of truth firmly and unflinchingly.

In a society swarming with lies and misinformation, only the truth can set us free.

CNN Chyron: Mail Bomb Recipients Are ‘Trump’s Targets’


Reported by Justin Caruso |

A CNN chyron aired Thursday said Democrats who received mail bombs this week are “Trump’s targets” — hours after an anchor insisted “no one’s blaming the president.”

“Manhunt For Serial Bomber Going After Trump’s Targets” read the CNN chyron at about 1:13 PM. This came after another chyron that also referred to those targeted as “Trump Targets.”

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer ended the segment by saying, “The one common thread between all of these bombs–all of those who are being targeted are President Trump’s frequent punching bags.”

This segment came mere hours after CNN’s John King opened up a panel discussion by stating: “No one’s blaming the president. Is anyone blaming the president?”

And just one hour before this segment, the network’s chyron suggested that Trump bears “responsibility” for “inciting” the perpetrator to send these packages — but alleges the president is not owning up to it.

Although CNN personalities have repeatedly said that they are not blaming Trump or his supporters for the mail bombs, they have emphasized several times that those targeted by the bombs were frequently criticized by Trump and by right-wing media.

Brian Stelter said Wednesday that the targets of the bombs “have all been criticized mercilessly by right-wing outlets.”

CNN analyst Josh Campbell also insisted Wednesday that Trump’s rhetoric may still be to blame for the mail bombs, even if the perpetrator is mentally ill.

“If the package bomber turns out to be someone with mental health issues, that doesn’t mean Pres. Trump is off the hook. If it turns out the bomber was motivated to kill perceived enemies based on recent heated political attacks by officials, those spewing hate share the blame,” he said.

Pompeo Smacks Acosta for Having Facts Wrong Then Asking ‘Ludicrous’ Question


Reported By Ben Marquis | September 25, 2018 at

1:46pm

The liberal media was all abuzz recently over an anonymous report published by The New York Times which alleged that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had once suggested to other administration officials — perhaps jokingly — that he wear a wire when meeting with President Donald Trump in order to gather evidence of his alleged mental instability to support invoking the 25th Amendment to remove the president from power.

The Daily Caller reported that this rather ridiculous story was brought up in the form of a question about the alleged 25th Amendment discussions posed to U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo during a news conference at the U.N. on Monday, where Trump was scheduled to address the General Assembly on Tuesday.

The reporter who brought up the story was none other than CNN’s Jim Acosta, and both Haley and Pompeo let him know how “absurd” and “ludicrous” both his question and the allegation in general were, while also calling him out for getting the basic facts and premise of his question wrong.

First addressing Haley, Acosta said, “You are the one person here who has been with this administration from the beginning,” and then mentioned the story about Rosenstein and invoking the 25th Amendment. “Were you ever involved in any of those discussions? Were you aware of any of those discussions?”

“I said yesterday on the Sunday shows that, literally, I have never once been in the White House where that conversation has happened,” Haley replied.

“I’m not aware of any cabinet members that are even talking about that. It is completely and totally absurd. No one is questioning the president at all. If anything, we’re trying to keep up the pace with him, in the fact that he has a lot he wants to accomplish very quickly and we’re going to continue to support him in the way that he does that,” she added.

Acosta then attempted to ask Pompeo a follow-up question regarding North Korea — particularly about not having details of a deal ironed out prior to high-level summit meetings — but the secretary felt the need to first address Acosta’s initial line of questioning, snarkily fact-checking him in the process.

“Two things: Fact check, I’ve been with the administration since the beginning, too. That’s relevant,” said Pompeo, who first served in the administration as CIA director prior to transferring to the State Department.

“I’ll add, no discussion with me about the 25th Amendment in any way either, so you can now report that there are two senior leaders who’ve said that your question was ludicrous,” Pompeo added.

Pompeo attempted to move on to the North Korea part of Acosta’s questions, but the reporter interrupted to apologize for forgetting Pompeo’s role as the former CIA director and to wonder why Rosenstein would be talking behind the scenes about the 25th Amendment, if it were so “ludicrous.”

“I find the question ludicrous,” Pompeo replied. “I’ve been involved, I’ve been at the center of this administration, along with lots of other folks, from virtually Day One — I think it was actually day three or four — I’ve never heard anyone talk about it, whisper about it, joke about it in any way.”

“I’ve been in a lot of meetings with a lot of senior officials from this government,” he added, prior to transitioning to Acosta’s question about North Korea.

In that regard, Pompeo noted that “we went at this the other way for decades,” to no avail, and said “we’re coming at this from a different direction” by bringing together the two most senior leaders from North Korea and the U.S. in an effort to make actual progress toward denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula.

Acosta, like many other “journalists” in the liberal media, accepted the report from The Times about Rosenstein’s wearing a wire and invoking the 25th Amendment against Trump as if it were the gospel truth, largely because it fit into their preconceived notions and narratives about the mental state of the president.

But Acosta’s “ludicrous” focus on a story that may not even be true, at the expense of more focus on far more pressing international matters, serves to fit snugly with the growing perception that the “fake news” media care only about hurting, smearing and ultimately getting rid of Trump. That’s why it was so it was nice to see Haley and Pompeo verbally smack him back into place.

Now CNN Blames Trump For … Hurricanes? No, This Isn’t Satire


Reported By Wes Walker |

If anyone was wondering what end-stage Trump Derangement Syndrome looks like, apparently it is the belief that he has God-like Malevolent powers. Every bad thing that happens has some kind of a tie-in to Trumpian responsibility. And today’s example of that awesome malevolent power is weather control.

CNN employees worked hard to discredit and drive from the Internet Alex Jones for, among other reasons, promoting conspiracy theories. And now that he’s all but disappeared from the digital public square CNN has moved in and filled the vacuum he left behind by reporting ideas that used to be firmly in the ‘tinfoil hat’ category — the weather.

CNN cited an editorial from WaPo as their excuse for treating this like a legitimate news story, as the East Coast is bracing for a big storm to come crashing down upon their shores. And of course, they found a way to lend credibility or legitimacy to that OP-ED:

Is Trump “complicit in this storm?” asked Alisyn Camerota in the segment introduction.

“His policies have been tearing down our defenses to climate change, which is often a blame for extreme weather,” Avlon answered. “On the same day Trump was discussing Florence, his EPA proposed rolling back restrictions on emissions of methane. That’s just the latest environmental policy targeted by the Trump Administration.”

Avlon rattled off a series of Obama-era environmental regulations the Trump Administration is rolling back — including pulling out of the Paris climate accord — and then boldly predicted a death toll in the thousands.

“It is so bad according to two Harvard scientists, it could lead to 80,000 unnecessary deaths every decade,” Avlon said. “Warmer water means more intense storms. When President Trump called Hurricane Florence tremendously wet, he was on to something.”
Source: Federalist Papers

In using the phrase ‘this storm’ she’s claiming that choices Trump made since taking office — and Trump alone — had such a profound effect on the environment off the Western Coast of Africa, where hurricanes that hit the East Coast first form, that we are already seeing violent storms because of it.

Have you seen overheated rhetoric like this before? Of course you have, a ‘Hugo Chavez mouthpiece’ was talking about USA unleashing our ‘earthquake weapon’ on Haiti and I can remember hearing about people who were convinced that America was somehow responsible for the devastating Tsunami that hit Japan just after Christmas.

What’s NEW about these wild theories is that the so-called ‘legitimate’ news sources have now laid the personal blame for particular storms on particular politicians. What do we expect from the people who were slavishly devoted to Obama, the man who announced at the Democratic Primary that ‘today was the day’ that would be pointed to as when the earth began to heal, and the oceans stopped rising.

(Sorry Hillary, apparently you were just not ‘green’ enough.)

And who are these theories being leveled against? It just ‘happens’ to be politicians the ‘non-partisan’ news media are in fundamental disagreement with on almost every issue. What a coincidence.

There is no POSSIBLE way they can draw a straight line of causation between the cause and effect. Why is that a big deal? It means they are LITERALLY presenting propaganda dressed up as news, especially when they throw in that line about ‘80,000 unnecessary deaths’.

Do you know what they conveniently left out of their Blame America weather change alarmism? They left out the detail that there really is one country that is attempting to make massive man-made changes to weather patterns. They are building machines whose sole purpose is to increase man-made climate change. And they are building them by the thousands. That would be China.

China is installing tens of thousands of chambers across the Tibetan Plateau and mountains. These machines will produce very fine silver iodide particles that are then lifted into the atmosphere with upwelling winds. As these particles are dispersed into the atmosphere they act as the nucleating point of condensed water.

[…] Each rain machine (chamber) is expected to create a 3-mile long strip of billowing clouds. When multiplied by the thousands of chambers China is installing along the Tibetan Plateau, it is estimated that China will be artificially controlling the weather over an area similar to the size of Alaska.
Source: Forbes

A little rough math puts Alaska at about 1% of the Earth’s total landmass, for anyone keeping score.

But they’re looking for ways to blame TRUMP for 80,000 deaths a decade, are they?

And for what? For leaving a meaningless, nonbinding agreement that bypassed the role of Congressional approval?

Sorry, CNN, if you’re going to tell stories like that one, and call it ‘news’ you’ll need to update your company dress code.

These hats will now be standard-issue and should be worn at all times.

Slow Death: CNN Dropped Below “Pawn Stars” Channel in Ratings


Reported By Ben Marquis | August 20, 2018 at 4:44pm

By now it has become predictable old news to hear that Fox News Channel defeated their cable news rivals CNN and MSNBC in the weekly ratings, as they have finished number one out of the big three in total average viewers per day for 31 consecutive weeks, according to Adweek.

Nor is it a surprise to hear that Fox beat their rivals in prime time viewership either, as they have done so for 11 consecutive weeks now.

What is somewhat surprising, and incredibly laughable, is that CNN — the formerly vaunted crown jewel of the establishment media — has sunk so low in the ratings that they are losing out to other basic cable networks in terms of prime time viewers, networks with decidedly less important topics to air than the serious news of the day.

The Daily Caller noted that while Fox ranked number one in total prime time viewers for the week of August 6-12 — 2.18 million viewers on the average evening — and were followed closely by MSNBC — 1.75 million viewers — both were trailed significantly by CNN, which averaged only 992,000 viewers during the prime time hours.

That placed CNN at seventh on the list, behind such basic cable networks as Home and Garden Television (1.33 million), USA Network (1.25 million), the History Channel (1.06 million) and TBS Network (1.02 million).

Essentially, CNN’s prime time stars like Anderson Cooper and Chris Cuomo are drawing fewer viewers than History Channel shows such as “Pawn Stars,” “American Pickers,” “Counting Cars,” “Mountain Men,” and perhaps funniest of all, “Ancient Aliens.”

Indeed, it would appear that more Americans would prefer to watch people haggle over the price of obscure antiques and old cars — or dive into the conspiracy theory of intelligent aliens visiting ancient civilizations on earth to help build the pyramids and teach them other civilization-building knowledge — than watch Cooper or Cuomo prattle on about Russians or bash the Trump administration on a daily basis.

Some of our readers who frequent social media have likely seen the memes of “Ancient Aliens” crazy-haired star Giorgio Tsoukalos stating “I’m not saying it was aliens, but it was aliens.”

That meme has recently been transformed in light of the ratings news to now feature Cooper or Cuomo stating, “I’m not saying it was the Russians, but it was probably the Russians.”

It is worth noting that while CNN lost out to the History Channel during prime time hours, the media outlet did manage to beat the History Channel in terms of total day viewers — 674,000 to 548,000. That means that at least some day time viewers seem to prefer watching CNN compare the current administration to Nazis than watching documentaries on actual Nazis during WWII.

So there is that, I guess, that CNN has going for them. Now if only CNN can find a way to woo viewers away from Nickelodeon, HGTV and Investigation Discovery … but they’d still be trailing Fox and MSNBC during the day.

It is also worth pointing out that while Adweek had noted that number one Fox News had seen a slight decline in its total numbers over last year — down 4 percent in total day viewers and down 18 percent among the key 25-54 demographic — CNN saw an even greater decline in their viewer numbers over last year.

Indeed, CNN’s daytime total was off by 13 percent and they fell by 23 percent in terms of the key 25-54 demographic of viewers that advertisers are so fond of.

We are witnessing the slow death of the overtly biased liberal media — which isn’t confined simply to TV, as formerly widely-read legacy newspapers have also seen immense drops in their numbers. This decline has been brought about their own actions, and no amount of kicking and screaming about Russia, Trump is Hitler or racism everywhere is going to save them.

Reporting the news in a straight-forward and objective manner is the only remedy that will save them now, but that might as well be buried beneath an alien spacecraft hidden inside a pyramid or tucked away on the back shelf of a pawn shop, given the media’s continued lurch leftward in spite of their plummeting ratings.

Watch: Border Agent Expertly Flips Script on CNN, Leaves Host Speechless


Reported By Erin Coates | June 20, 2018 at 2:21pm

URL of the original posting site: https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/watch-border-agent-expertly-flips-script-on-cnn-leaves-host-speechless/

The establishment media’s narrative is clear: President Donald Trump is inhumane and is separating families trying to illegally cross the border because he is a monster.

People across Twitter have picked up on the claims, and Peter Fonda even called for people to “rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage” so that Melania Trump will “stand up” to her husband.

So, it’s not okay for children who are not citizens of this country to be taken from their parents who have broken the law, but it’s totally okay to kidnap the president’s son and put him in a cage? Sounds a little hypocritical to me.

But CNN quickly ran into a roadblock when they tried to get a border patrol agent to admit that the conditions the kids were being kept in at the border were horrific.

Brooke Baldwin interviewed Chris Cabrera, a spokesperson for the National Border Patrol Council, on CNN Tuesday to grill him on “these children being ripped from their parents,” The Daily Caller reported.

“I understand where you’re coming from. I don’t think everybody understands what is actually happening down here. You have a lot of these kids that are coming here and put through terrible, terrible situations by their parents. They are brought over in extremely dangerous conditions and extremely dangerous terrain,” Cabrera said.

All this could be avoided if they just go through the port of entry. There would be no crime committed by them and they wouldn’t get separated. Why they don’t do this is beyond me, but this problem is very easily solved, at least on the short-term basis, by going through the port of entry. If they choose to go through the (Rio Grande) river, they’re committing a crime just like anyone else and they’re subject to arrest. And we know when you get arrested, you don’t get to stay with your family.”

Baldwin tries to break it down so that it looks like the illegal immigrants are the victims, and Cabrera clarifies that crossing the Rio Grande is illegal for both U.S. citizens and immigrants. She then asked about delays for asylum seekers and families being turned away at a port of entry with an “indefinite delay.”

Cabrera replies that that is exactly the problem. “We’ve had this situation going on for four years now. I don’t think you can necessarily blame it on one administration or the other. It started under one and is continuing under another. It hasn’t been fixed and it needs to be fixed.”

As Baldwin tries to interrupt, the border patrol agent continued, “Right now we have this beacon of, ‘We’ll leave the light on for you and let you come illegally into the country.’ If you’ve seen some of the stuff we’ve seen, you’d understand how important it is to have a tough stance to divert people from coming here.”

He then tells Baldwin about the horrors these children face because immigrants have been allowed to “take advantage of this system.”

“When you see a 12-year-old girl with a plan B pill, her parents put her on birth control because they know getting violated is part of the journey, that’s a terrible way to live. When you see a 4-year-old girl traveling alone with just her parents’ phone number written across her shirt. Something needs to be done. We had a 9-year-old boy have heat stroke in front of us and die with no family around. That’s because we’re allowing people to continue take advantage of this system.”

It is on Congress, Cabrera pointed out, to change these laws and get these problems fixed.

“They need to come in there, they need to get to work and they need to change this law,” he said. “Until then, us as border patrol agents, we have a duty to enforce these laws and we will continue to do it until they change this law and hopefully they will.”

Baldwin responded to these horrors and this call to Congress by asking for reassurance that the kids America is outraged about are being treated humanely, looking one last time to put the agent into a corner. And Cabrera flips the narrative again.

“I can tell you with absolute certainty that they are being treated humanely. Most of our agents are parents. I’ve seen guys, and I’ve done it myself, you give your last bottle of water to a kid, you’ll take a toy out of your car to give to one of these kids because you know the situation they’re in,” Cabrera said.

“Agents are very sympathetic. We’re human, we’re fathers, we have families. We do a lot for the communities here, whether or not a camera is involved. Our agents are very involved. And nobody saves more lives along the southwestern border than the U.S. Border patrol.”

So, it looks like the border patrol agents are not evil monsters after all. Cabrera makes a good point, despite what your opinions are about the situation, it is up to the lawmakers to make any changes. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has drafted executive orders for Trump to sign that wouldn’t end the zero-tolerance policy, but would instead try to keep families together while they are detained.

At least the Trump administration is trying to do something. Congressional Democrats, it’s your move.

Fox News’ Worst-Rated Show Just Delivered Brutal Punishment to CNN


Reported By Ben Marquis | May 6, 2018 at 2:12pm

Of the three major cable news networks, Fox News Channel obviously leans to the right but provides fairly balanced coverage of the news of the day. MSNBC, meanwhile, openly presents itself as left-leaning and provides equally left-leaning news coverage to their liberal viewers. CNN, however, has attempted to portray itself as unbiased and centrist as a media organization, but its news coverage quite obviously skews toward the left. It appears a significant number of viewers have taken notice and are no longer watching based on recent ratings numbers, according to Breitbart.

In fact, the highest-rated primetime program on CNN fell short of the lowest-rated primetime program on FNC, and even lost to a handful of Fox’s afternoon and morning programs.

Those dismal numbers for CNN were revealed in Adweek‘s report of the ratings by Nielsen Media Research for the month of April, numbers that have Fox and MSNBC cheering while CNN looks on from afar.

The best-rated weeknight show for CNN — “Anderson Cooper 360” — placed a distant 24th on the list of most-watched cable news programs. Meanwhile, the lowest-rated Fox News program in the evenings was “Fox News at Night with Shannon Bream,” which came in at 13th on the list.

Much to the dismay of liberals, Fox’s Sean Hannity came in at No. 1 in both total viewers and among the coveted advertising demographic of adults aged 25-54. Hannity was followed by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow in both categories, and the top five in total viewers was rounded out by Fox’s Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham, and MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell. Carlson and Ingraham swapped spots in the top five among the key demo.

Spots six through 10 for total viewers were filled respectively by Fox’s “Special Report with Bret Baier,” “The Five,” “The Story with Martha MacCallum,” MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes” and “Hardball with Chris Matthews.”

Hilariously, morning programs for Fox like “America’s Newsroom” (12th), “Fox and Friends” (14th), “Outnumbered” (16th) and “Happening Now” (18th) all beat CNN’s top-rated show.

Even mid-afternoon Fox programming like “Your World with Neil Cavuto” (17th), “Shepard Smith Reporting” (20th), “Outnumbered Overtime” (22nd) and “Daily Briefing with Dana Perino” (23rd) ranked higher in total viewers than Cooper’s program on CNN.

Following Cooper for the most-watched CNN programs at all times of the day within the top 40 were “Erin Burnett Out Front” (27th) and “CNN Tonight” (28th), along with “The Lead with Jake Tapper” (32nd), “Situation Room” (33rd), “CNN Newsroom” (37), “Wolf” (38th), “Inside Politics” (39th) and “At This Hour” (40).

The only Fox News Channel program that CNN beat in terms of total viewers was “Fox and Friends First,” which ranked 42nd on the list — and airs at 4 a.m. Eastern!

The only saving grace among this horrible news for CNN is that they did slightly better among the key 25-54 demo than among total viewers, as Cooper’s show ranked 12th, though he still lost out to Bream’s program — which airs late at 11 p.m. Eastern — which came in at 11th on the list among the demo coveted by advertisers.

In Nielsen’s tally of viewership of all cable networks, not just cable news channels, Fox still emerged as the most-watched cable channel both in primetime and the daytime.

Turner Network Television, which has been airing NBA playoff games since mid April, came in second for total primetime viewers, followed closely by MSNBC in third place. CNN ranked eighth in total primetime viewers for the month, losing out to cable networks such as TBS, HGTV, ESPN and the USA Network.

So perhaps this should be a lesson to any network that purports to be unbiased in its coverage, but is blatantly left-leaning and caters exclusively to liberal Trump-haters with its news coverage. It quickly becomes irrelevant and loses out “bigly” to its competition.

CNN Forced to Admit Town Requiring Guns Has Stunning Crime Stats


Authored By Ben Marquis | March 7, 2018 at 3:16pm

URL of the original posting site: https://conservativetribune.com/cnn-admit-town-guns-crime-stats/

As has become typical, the debate over the Second Amendment and gun control reached a fever pitch following the recent mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida. Even as some liberals chastise gun owners and condescendingly declare, “Nobody wants to take away your guns,” other Democrats put forward legislation that would ban most common semi-automatic firearms and others even suggested Australia-style confiscation laws.

It should go without saying that the mainstream media is fully supportive of such proposals, chief among them CNN, as evidenced by its incessantly favorable coverage for the anti-gun side and staunch opposition to the point of denigration for those who advocate for the Second Amendment.

However, there is a small town in Georgia that went an entirely different route in regard to guns and gun ownership nearly four decades ago. Breitbart noted that even CNN had to admit that a law mandating gun ownership for those Georgia residents has had an effect on gun violence in the area.

That town would be Kennesaw, Georgia, and they passed a local ordinance into law in 1982 that required the head of every single household in their jurisdiction to keep a firearm in their home for the purpose of home defense. According to a piece from CNN, the town of about 33,000 people has suffered only one murder in the past six years, and has a crime rate of less than 2 percent. In other words, as economist John Lott has long noted, “More guns, less crime.”

The decidedly anti-gun media outlet made certain to mention that the law is generally unenforced by local police — meaning some households may not actually have the mandated firearm — and were also sure to point out that there could be other factors at play in regard to the exceptionally low crime rate aside from the mandatory gun ownership.

But even if the law isn’t strictly enforced, it undoubtedly has an effect, as Kennesaw Police Department Lt. Craig Graydon stated, “It was meant to be kind of a crime deterrent.”

Since the law has been around for so long, Kennesaw has received attention from all over the country — and even other nations around the world — in regard to the ordinance as various locales consider whether something similar might be right for their own communities.

“We get a lot of calls, conversation, and it seems to keep crime control, gun safety, things like that on the minds of many of the residents, because people are constantly talking about the gun law,” Lt. Graydon said. “So that’s been somewhat of a benefit to us.”

That appears to be how Mayor Derek Easterling views the law as well. “If you’re going to commit a crime in Kennesaw and you’re the criminal — are you going to take a chance that that homeowner is a law-abiding citizen” he said.

“The first thing that most people say when they meet us, you know as a community is ‘oh, it’s not what I expected,’” explained Easterling of the attention his town has received. “I don’t know what they expect of people who arm themselves with guns at home, or what they’re looking for, but really we’re not that.”

One resident of the town who has willingly obeyed the ordinance is Wayne Arnold. He told CNN that in addition to several handguns, he also keeps one of the incredibly common AR-15-style semi-automatic rifles chambered in .223 caliber handy, just in case.

“It gives me the ability to protect myself as opposed to being somewhere where you weren’t allowed to have a firearm or it was frowned upon,” Arnold said.

“People kind of get the image that it’s the Wild West, where everybody walks around with a firearm strapped to their side, and it’s not like that,” he added. “It’s strictly a home defense system type of deal. There’s no shootouts down the street.

Trump Tweets A.F. Branco Cartoon Mocking CNN and Wolf Blitzer


Authored by Tami Jackson | on

CNN Blitzer Collusion

CNN, Cable News Network — golly that sounds innocuous — was founded by über Lefty media mogul Ted Turner (the one-time “Hanoi Hilton” “FTW” Jane Fonda main squeeze) in 1980. Consumers thought they were getting up to the minute news and more news.

But over the years the true worldview of the network (that some deridingly call the “Communist News Network” or the “Clinton News Network”) has become all too apparent.

While The Gray Lady motto may be “All the News That’s Fit to Print,” kissin’ cousin CNN boasted its motto as “The Most Trusted Name in News.” Deplorables have unofficially changed the network slogan to “Holy Crap, We’re All Gonna Die.”

Indeed, is there an American with a brain and cognitive ability who really trusts CNN?

Oh sure, we trust them to blame flyover patriots for everything, including climate change. We trust CNN to report any innuendo and negative gossip possible about the President. We trusted CNN to predict Hill the Pill would win the election, and to weep inconsolably when Ms Clinton went down in wine-laden flames.

And king of the CNN inner sanctum, Wolf Blitzer, has led his own blitzkrieg on all things Trump. The Angry Anchor, apparently infected with an early strain of Trump Derangement Syndrome, determined quickly that he would expose the Trump-Russia Collusion, despite lack of ANY evidence of said collusion, if it’s the last thing he does.

Comically Incorrect Owner/Editor-in-Chief (Cartoonist-in-Chief), A.F. “Tony” Branco, created a ‘toon to memorialize CNN’s Blitzer in all his collusion-hunting glory, and even President Trump enjoyed it enough to tweet it out to his 47.9 MILLION followers.

Sorry Wolfy.

Trump has about 46.78 MILLION more followers on Twitter than CNN has viewers.

AND Trump has 47.57 MILLION more followers than YOU, Blitzer Blitzkrieg, have viewers. *sniff*

Thus, Donald Trump was right on the money when he tweeted this:

Bravo Tony! You captured the spirit of The Gray Gentleman, aka, CNN Anchor Wolf Blitzer, and better still, 47.9 million deplorables are smiling now that no less than Donald Trump has shared your epic cartoon!

CNN Praises North Korea’s Despotic 1st Family – The Internet Takes CNN To Truth City

Their brother – the one little rocket man murdered with nerve gas — was not available for comment. If Stalin were alive today, our guess is that CNN would pick his side over Trump. They’re not even TRYING to hide it anymore.

Before we go further, we may want to remember just who we are talking about. This isn’t some Mugabe-level tinpot dictator. North Korea is a whole other level.

His country is the world’s largest prison camp, which an Auschwitz survior (and judge on the International Court of Justice) has described as ‘WORSE’ than Nazi Germany.
Read More here

Not only did Kim Jong Un kill his brother with Nerve Gas in an Airport in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, but he killed his Uncle, too. He’s also been known to shoot those who displease him with anti-aircraft guns.

Kim Jong-un had 11 musicians executed with anti-aircraft guns and orders aides to pick out sex slaves from North Korea’s schools, a defector has claimed.
…They were lashed to the end of anti-aircraft guns. Their bodies were blown to bits, totally destroyed, blood and bits flying everywhere.
“And then after that military tanks moved in and they ran over the bits on the ground where the remains lay.”
Source: Independent

THAT is who we are dealing with. And the Media(D) STILL loathe Trump (and in this case, his proxy, Pence) so bitterly that they cannot help but praise his sister… who may have run things briefly while he was ill some years ago.

Here’s what they said about his sister:

If “diplomatic dance” were an event at the Winter Olympics, Kim Jong Un’s younger sister would be favored to win gold.

With a smile, a handshake and a warm message in South Korea’s presidential guest book, Kim Yo Jong has struck a chord with the public just one day into the PyeongChang Games.

Riiiiight. And ‘maybe Mousellini had a great sense of humor — when you really got to know him’.

Nope. We’re not buying what you’re shoveling.

And neither were ‘the interwebz’.

He wasn’t done calling out the media in their fawning over dictators.

Brit Hume’s reaction was a lot like ours:

And rounding out the Stalin and Moussilini references…

Ouch.

Good thing they’re the ‘most trusted name in news’ or people might start to suspect there’s something a little bit ‘Pravda-ish’ about these guys.

CNN Anchor Chris Cuomo BLASTS Hillary Clinton Over Lies


CNN Anchor Chris Cuomo BLASTS Hillary Clinton Over Lies. I commented that one of the many signs that America shifts towards Conservatism will come in fake news media reporting.

I said on my radio show that you will soon see the media covering unflattering stories of high-level, previously untouchable Democrats. While CNN remains fake news as they selectively cover things like the FISA memo due to come out shortly, they no longer wear their “poker face” when discussing Hillary Clinton.

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo blasted Hillary Clinton recently over the issue of sexual abuse by a staffer. Cuomo said of the recent revelation that Clinton shielded a 2008 campaign staffer from firing after sexual harassment allegations showcases her inability to admit her mistakes.

“It raises two things,” Cuomo said. “We went hard on this Friday night on the prime time show and the one is, this is who Hillary Clinton is. Let’s be honest. One of the reasons that email story got out of control is that she wouldn’t jump on that early on either and just own what was true and apologize about it.”

“The second thing is they’ll say it was 2008,” he continued. “Whatever, you had two people, including your campaign manager, come to you and said this person has to go. That was all you needed, 2008, 1978, that’s all she should have needed.”

In this time of heightened awareness placed on sexual harassment and abuse, Hillary Clinton appears rather flippant in her response. Clinton’s 2008 former campaign chief, Patti Solis Doyle told CNN earlier Monday that she looked into the matter and “came to the conclusion that there was sexual harassment involved. She added that the young woman was very credible. Finally, she commented, “my recommendation to the Senator was to fire him and I was overruled.”

What Cuomo said is about as close as you can come to calling a person a liar, without outright calling a person a liar. But what the Democrats certainly must see is that the fake news media now covers Clinton, and not favorably. Check out this segment from Wolf Blitzer:

Interestingly, what began impugning the reputation of Harvey Weinstein now expands to engulf Hillary Clinton. What irony.

The Democrats are in big trouble. Clinton’s legacy as a champion of women’s causes is dead, even if the Left haven’t admitted it publicly.

And in the wake of the FISA memo revelations, the party itself is on life-support.

At some point, the media must try to regain some modicum of credibility. I think we have seen the first pass.

Watch: Weather Channel Founder Sets Climate Change Nut Straight With Facts


Reported 

URL of the original posting site: https://conservativetribune.com/weather-channel-founder-facts/?

Advertisement – story continues below

During an appearance on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” three years ago, The Weather Channel founder John Coleman destroyed, eviscerated and demolished both CNN and host Brian Stelter over their fanatical dedication to the unproven theory of man-made climate change.

“I resent you calling me a ‘denier,’” he initially told Stelter, referencing the host’s decision to identify him as a so-called “climate denier,” according to a transcript from The Heartland Center. “I’m a skeptic about climate change.”

Stelter then made the unwise decision to interrupt Coleman to tell him how much he personally loves The Weather Channel. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is when Coleman began letting him have it.

“I’m talking now!” he barked back. “Hold on just a minute. I’m not done. And CNN has taken a very strong position on global warming that it is a consensus. There is no consensus in science. Science isn’t a vote. Science is about facts. And if you get down to the hard cold facts, there’s no question about it. Climate change is not happening.”

When Stelter interrupted him again shortly thereafter to argue that it wouldn’t be possible for them to reach a definitive conclusion on man-made climate change during the show, Coleman hit him again. “Oh I know we’re not, because you would’t allow it to happen on CNN,” he snarkily replied.

Watch the full brutal interview below:

The remainder of the interview continued in the same vein, with Stelter repeatedly trotting out bogus “facts,” and Coleman slapping them down every time.

“That’s a manipulated figure and let me explain it to you,” he said when Stelter touted the “fact” that 97 percent of climate scientists believe in climate change.

He explained that the government will only fund scientists who produce certain scientific results that fit their desired agenda.

“So, they don’t have any choice,” he said. “If you’re going to get the money, you gotta support their position. Therefore, 97 percent of the scientific reports published support global warming. Why? Because those are the ones the government pays for and that’s where the money is.”

“I’m not a scientist, so I’m not going to try to refute you,” Stelter replied, to which Coleman replied with the slam of the year: “Boy, that’s the truth.“

Ain’t it, though!?

“So please stand back from this issue … There are 31,000 scientists who have signed a petition that says it is not valid, that my position is correct,” he added. “And we’ll keep battling, and we will prevail in time, but I don’t know if we’ll do it in my lifetime.”

As of September, an astonishing 31,487 scientists with 9,029 PhDs have signed the petition.

Dear CNN: Remember When DEMOCRATS Deported Kids At Gunpoint?


Published by ClashDaily.com | on September 6, 2017

Do you remember this? Seems like CNN and the rest of the Media (D) doesn’t. Although CNN had just last Thursday run a documentary commemorating the anniversary of the forced deportation of a young would-be ‘Dreamer’, they fail to see that their own biases are at play.

Last month marked 17 years since little 6-year old Elian Gonzalez was taken from his family’s home in a late-night federal raid — with agents armed to the teeth — to be deported to Cuba.

It was an image seen around the world.

Deporting kids back to Cuba is different than sending them back to Mexico and South America for some reason.

Barry was soft on Castro’s regime. We had a ‘Cuban Reset’ if you will.

US law — until Obama nixed it — said that Cubans fleeing the Communist regime would be granted permanent residency status if they had ‘one foot’ on American soil.

“By taking this step, we are treating Cuban migrants the same way we treat migrants from other countries,” Obama wrote in a statement Thursday.

“The United States, a land of immigrants, has been enriched by the contributions of Cuban-Americans for more than a century,” he continued. “Since I took office, we have put the Cuban-American community at the center of our policies. With this change we will continue to welcome Cubans as we welcome immigrants from other nations, consistent with our laws.
Source: CNN 

Did Obama just say that we are to treat all immigrants equally ‘consistent with our laws’? Somebody tell all those ‘Sanctuary City’ nuts. They probably won’t understand, though.

Elian’s Miami relatives argued if the boy went back to Cuba, he would become a brainwashed trophy for Castro in his long-running feud with the US.

As the two sides fought out the high-profile case in court, U.S. immigration officials decided to put Elian in the custody of his father, who had come to the United States to press for his son’s return.

Elian is now 23 and a solid communist. He believes in the ‘Revolution’ and is joining the Cuban army. He also blames the United States for the many Cubans that take their lives in their hands — like his mother did — to flee. But hey, it’s not like he was ‘used politically’ like he claims he would have been in the United States.

At his seventh birthday party, the guest of honor was Cuban leader Fidel Castro. Images of Elian and Castro celebrating were first shown on the island’s state-run TV and then transmitted around the world, to a public still fascinated by the case of the rafter-boy.

“I don’t profess to have any religion, but if I did my God would be Fidel Castro. He is like a ship that knew to take his crew on the right path,” Gonzalez said in an interview with Cuba’s state-run media in 2013.
Source: CNN

Yep. That’s not brainwashing at all. Good thing that the Democrats protected this child in a terrifying way at gunpoint in the middle of the night. After all, look at the young man he’s become. He’s a staunch supporter of the ‘Revolution’ that jailed thousands of political dissidents and, between 1959 and 1987, killed somewhere in the range of 35,000 to 141,000 citizens.

Great work, Democrats.

FAKE NEWS: CNN Caught Faking Harvey Rescue Video in Pathetic Stunt

Dear CNN: Here’s How YOU Would Report This Epic Story


Published by ClashDaily.com | on August 30, 2017

URL of the original posting site: http://clashdaily.com/2017/08/dear-cnn-heres-report-epic-story/

The Most Trusted Name In News? Not a chance. You know how CNN would spin this story. Look at how they’ll exploit people in the midst of tragedy to get ratings.

You know that the race-baiters and offense-mongers at CNN would take this image and push a racist narrative and have the whole thing spiral out of control.

You know, a ‘full eclipse of the facts‘, so to speak.

*cough* Don Lemon *cough* 

Couldn’t you just imagine a breathless Jim Acosta outraged over all the looting of black people by white supremacists? Or Anderson Cooper hosting a panel consisting of Shaun King, Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton shouting about ‘systemic racism’ and ‘oppression’Maybe Wolf Blitzer would have on a former Mizzou Prof to discuss ‘bias’.

These people need to stop.

When Ben Shapiro appeared on Don Lemon’s show after the outrageous comments by Lemon the night before, Shapiro called him out on his bias: 

These folks in the Media (D) refuse to acknowledge that their bias tilts the news. 

Here at ClashDaily, you know what you’re getting — Conservative commentary of the news based on Judeo-Christian values and America’s founding documents.

The Media (D) is not objective, and they have an agenda. Which they actively push.  But they don’t disclose it and, as Shapiro so eloquently put it, hide behind a ‘patina of objectivity’.

This is why the President says that the ‘Fake News Media’ is the enemy of the American people. Guess what? He’s right.

But perhaps the greatest accomplishment of the Trump Administration is yet to come — the fall of the Fake News Media (D).

It’s already happening, folks.

The times, they are a-changin’.

And I, for one, just can’t wait!

Trump Gets Biker Backup as Phoenix Antifa Showdown Looms Large


Reported by Andrew West | August 22, 2017

radical left

The President’s rally Tuesday night in Phoenix has been the talk of the town in recent days, as the mainstream media continues to predict anarchy at the event.

Of course, this is all simply a business maneuver by the likes of CNN, who have been instigating a grand array of violent, leftist action in that past few weeks in order to entice viewers to turn on the news.  Not only has the network promoted its coverage of potential clashes between the radical left and patriots incessantly, but they have even gone so far as to advertise a list of allegedly controversial locations for Antifa and others to desecrate.

Now President Trump is back in the crosshairs of the liberal “news” network as the Commander in Chief prepares for a campaign-style rally in downtown Phoenix on Tuesday night.

In the lead-up to the event, CNN and other fakes news networks have been touting the powder-keg-like potential of Tuesday night, constantly reminding Americans of the horrific Battle of Charlottesville and, in many ways, attempting to portray tonight’s event as a sequel to that heinous tragedy. 

With television viewers soon to be inundated with football of both the college and professional variety, as well as baseball playoffs, CNN has been forced to make these sort of last ditch efforts in order to salvage what ratings they can.  Without this provocation and inciting of violence, the network would simply fade into obscurity as Americans change the channel for the season.

Given the push to create turmoil in Phoenix, some of Donald Trump’s most ardent supporters are planning to attend the rally in order to keep the peace.

And don’t worry, you’ll hear them coming.

“’Donald Trump is coming to the Phoenix Convention Center to hold a rally. There have been plans for Charlottesville sympathizers to protest. We need our bikers to show up and keep people safe,’ Bikers for Trump Arizona Cobra Chapter says in a ‘call to action’ to the group’s members — in anticipation of a possible encounter with anti-Trump protesters, who will assemble at the arena an hour before Mr. Trump steps on stage in the early evening.

“’They are supposed to start at 6:00. We think we need to be there by at least 4:00. That is when the doors open. If there are people outside waiting to get in, we don’t want anyone to harass them. Protesters have a right to protest, but they don’t have a right to threaten or intimidate. That is why we need to be there,’ the notice explained.

 “There also will be a ‘Stand for Patriotism Rally,’ outside the convention center. Organizers advise participants that ‘anti-American’ and ‘hate groups’ will be in attendance.” 

While the presence of the bikers will come as a welcome comfort for the patriots in the crowd, a great number of Antifa twerps may require assistance after soiling their pants.
The radical left has been on a steady diet of media attention after their siege of Charlottesville, armed with smartphones set to “selfie mode” and hashtags galore.  They’ve face very little opposition, thanks in no small part to the mainstream media who have pushed incessantly for protection of these social justice-obsessed attention mongers.
With bikers for Trump on-site, however, this could be the last stand for the misguided millennial miscreants.

Fake News Explained So Clearly That Even Don Lemon Could Understand It

CNN and their media accomplices HATE all this talk about ‘fake news’. They claim it’s anti-journalism. (Considering their ‘commitment to journalistic ethics‘ that is ‘adorable’.)

CNN has a curious pattern of ‘tech issues’ when the topic of ‘fake news’ comes up on air. Don Lemon has even been known to end interviews completely for even mentioning it.

But if CNN and the Media (D) have any intention of saving their credibility — and credibility IS their product — they must first come face-to-face with the problem.

This is a top-notch breakdown of what we mean by ‘fake news’ and why we mean it.

Will the networks ever beat their addiction to Fake News? That depends whether they can admit their problem.
