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.”
