  • Fox's Jeanine Pirro Exposes Appalling Results of 1982 Illegal-Immigrant Education Decision

    CNN's Brian Stelter angrily contends that the rape of a 14 year-old girl at Rockville High School in Montgomery County, Maryland on March 16 at the hands of two late-teen illegal immigrant freshman classmates should never have been a national story — and the fact that it is to an extent, despite obvious attempts to blackball it by the Big Three broadcast networks, is all Fox News's fault. The real question, which the public education establishment and their accomplices in the press don't want anyone to ask, is this: What has happened in the nation's schools during the past 35 years as...
  • AP Consults Spy Novelists to Hype Trump-Russia Fake News

    Now that the Trump-Russia fake news story is crumbling as Rolling Stone writer Matt Taibbi warned liberals, how can the mainstream media continue to report on this fact-free topic? Simple. By invoking masters of fiction in the form of spy novelists. Therefore it is appropriate that Associated Press writer Hillel Italie consulted several of those fiction writers to comment on fake news fiction. You will look in vain for any actual facts but at least you will be somewhat entertained by his desperation to report something in his March 8 AP article, Spy novelists keeping an eye on Trump-Russia allegations:
  • For Trump Foes, Democratic Gains May Remain Elusive in 2018

    ABC News ^ | February 5, 2017
    Passionate protests against Donald Trump's presidency have swelled the ranks of Democratic activists, but their new enthusiasm faces a hard reality: Republicans remain well-positioned to retain their grip on power in the 2018 elections. While Republicans hold only a slim majority in the U.S. Senate, Democrats occupy most of the seats up for election in two years. That means they must play defense against Republicans, especially in 10 states that Trump won. In the U.S. House, Republicans will be aided by favorable district boundaries that were drawn to maintain GOP political dominance. In some cases, the congressional districts were gerrymandered...
  • Associated Press Spreads Fake News Story About Trump Threatening To Invade Mexico

    02/03/2017 2:10:03 PM PST · by davikkm · 9 replies
    Fake News was a hot issue during the presidential election. As President Donald Trump and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton continued to escalate tension, the threat of fraudulent news sources only worsened the partisan divide. As has been shown time and time again, the fake news threat isnt in the so-called alt-right movement or a product of conservatives. Fake News is actually on the rise in the mainstream media, the most trusted source of news for many Americans. The dishonesty among propagandists disguised as journalists is a betrayal of American trust. When people turn on the television or open...

    European Union nations bracing for the looming Donald Trump presidency showed defiance Monday in the face of the president-elect's stinging comments on everything from NATO and German cars to the crumbling of the EU itself. German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said the U.S. president-elect's view that NATO was obsolete and his criticism that European allied members aren't paying their fair share had "caused astonishment." Trump also said Britain's decision to leave the 28-nation European Union would "end up being a great thing," and he predicted that other countries would also leave. At a meeting of EU ministers, French Foreign Minister...

    In reaction to the news that Facebook is partnering with the Associated Press, ABC News, and Snopes, among other apparent fact checkers to tag and weed out fake news on the popular social site, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell said Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg assured him that his express aim is to eliminate only patently false news stories from Facebook. I have been in communication with Mark Zuckerberg at Facebook since he announced their new fake news initiative, said MRC President Bozell in a Dec. 16 statement. I expressed grave concern with this decision and the liberal fact-checking organizations...

    Who? The Clinton campaign? ^ | September 12, 2016 | Self
    Who controls press footage and when it's released. Noticed this on video that was released on Twitter a few minutes ago. Seems that it was probably only released after it was approved by the campaign and it shows different angles and what they want you to see. Does the Clinton campaign see and approve all video before it's released by the press corps. Seems that the public will never really see an honest view of what is going on with her health if everything is controlled and scrubbed https://www.yahoo.com/news/clinton-much-better-leaving-9-162249715.html?format=embed

    AP ^ | 7/6/2016 | Stephen Brown and Jack Gillum
    Key assertions by Hillary Clinton in defense of her email practices have collapsed under FBI scrutiny. The agency's yearlong investigation found that she did not, as she claimed, turn over all her work-related messages for release. It found that her private email server did carry classified emails, also contrary to her past statements. And it made clear that Clinton used many devices to send and receive email despite her statements that she set up her email system so that she only needed to carry one. FBI Director James Comey's announcement Tuesday that he will not refer criminal charges to the...

    DENVER Once a swing state in presidential elections, Colorado has teetered on becoming solidly Democratic. Donald Trump may have pushed it over the edge. Trumps disparaging words about Mexicans, negative comments about women and weak campaign organization have punctuated the states shift from a nip-and-tuck battleground to one thats Democrat-friendly. ... And its not just Colorado. Trumps inflammatory rhetoric and weak campaign structure could ensure that perennially competitive Nevada and New Mexico are out of reach as well.

    The depths to which “respected” journalists will stoop in seeking to create a narrative to sway elections and poll numbers defy comprehension. False allegations, slanderous innuendo and general hit-job reporting, which were once relegated to angry bloggers and unhinged writers, have been steadily creeping into what many regard as respectable news organizations. The latest episode comes from an Associated Press story by Jay Reeves in the form of his June 30th piece celebrating the sesquicentennial of the Ku Klux Klan. Why any news organization, let alone the AP which claims to  "abhor inaccuracies, carelessness, bias or distortions,” would spend so much time profiling an organization whose...

    International mediators trying to promote Mideast peace warned in a highly anticipated report Friday that Israels settlement expansion is eroding the viability of a Palestinian state and raises legitimate questions about its commitment to a two-state solution. The Quartet of Mideast negotiators the U.N., U.S., European Union and Russia also criticized the glorification of Palestinians who commit terrorist attacks against Israel and called on the Palestinian Authority to act decisively to stop incitement to violence and clearly condemn all acts of terrorism. While the Israeli and Palestinian leaders and the majority of people on both sides support a...

    Prosecutors tried one last time on Monday to persuade a Baltimore judge to convict the driver of a police wagon in which 25-year-old black arrestee Freddie Grays neck was broken on the way to a police station. Both sides delivered closing arguments after more than five days of testimony in the trial of Officer Caesar Goodson on charges including second-degree murder and manslaughter. Other officers left Gray in handcuffs and leg shackles inside the paddy wagon, leaving him unable to protect himself from being slammed into the vans metal walls during the ride. Prosecutors say Goodson breached his duty when...

    ORLANDO - Newly released transcripts show Orlando gunman Omar Mateen spoke in Arabic to a 911 dispatcher and told a crisis negotiator that the U.S. needed to stop bombing Iraq and Syria. The FBI released partial transcripts Monday of four calls between Mateen and law enforcement, as investigators prepared to give additional details about its investigation into the massacre at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, which left 49 victims dead. Mateen also died. The communications, along with Facebook posts and searches made before and during the shooting, have been slowly adding to the public understanding of the final hours of...

    In his second speech on Sunday morning's terrorist massacre in Orlando, Florida, President Barack Obama said  on Monday that "the shooter was inspired by various extremist information that was disseminated over the Internet," that "we see no clear evidence that he was directed externally," and that "this is certainly an example of the kind of homegrown extremism that all of us have been so concerned about for a very long time." The press, led as usual by the Associated Press, is certainly cooperating with those characterizations. Presumptive Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has clearly made up her mind that...

    SANTA MONICA, Calif. - Authorities in Santa Monica arrested an Indiana man Sunday morning ahead of the LA PRIDE parade in nearby West Hollywood after the discovery of possible explosives in a car, according to California law enforcement. Just before 3 p.m. ET, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti told the Associated Press a heavily armed man was arrested, and that man told police during his arrest he was going to the PRIDE parade. Investigators removed items from the suspect's white Acura sedan and placed them on the sidewalk near the driver's side door, according to KNBC. Santa Monica Chief of...

    The Associated Press is warning its reporters to stay vigilant after several received harassing messages from Bernie Sanders supporters. Danny Spriggs, the AP's vice president for global security, said some reporters have received angry emails, social media messages and phone calls after the AP declared Hillary Clinton the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. "We have not received any specific security threats," Spriggs said in an email to employees, according to Poynter. "It is always good to practice situational awareness around AP bureaus and offices." The AP on Monday declared Clinton the Democratic nominee, saying she had enough pledged delegates and superdelegate...

    Hey! It's all over!Hillary Clinton is now the presumptive Democrat nominee. So declared the Associated Press last night to much media acclaim. However, amidst such celebrations, a sour note from the left has sounded. It comes from spoilsport Glenn Greenwald who poured some cold water upon the party with some very apt observations via The Intercept where he is one of the co-founding editors.

    The Obama administration is pressuring the food industry to make foods from breads to sliced turkey less salty, proposing long-awaited sodium guidelines in an effort to prevent thousands of deaths each year from heart disease and stroke. The proposed guidelines released Wednesday are voluntary, so food companies wont be required to comply. But the idea is to persuade companies and restaurants many of which have already lowered sodium levels in their products to take a more consistent approach. [] Some companies have worried that though the limits will be voluntary, the FDA is at heart a regulatory agency,...
