    American Thinker ^ | September 14, 2018 | Brian C. Joondeph
    With the midterms less than two months away and the economy firing on all cylinders, the Democrats, and their handlers, also known as the American media, are entering the panic zone. The midterms are the last chance for the left to stop the Trump train. Robert Mueller's investigation is shooting blanks. Mueller's Deep State cronies in the FBI and DOJ may be facing legal troubles of their own. Trump's popularity remains solid despite Hurricane Florence-strength media attacks against him each and every day. CNN and MSNBC are currently at Category 4 hurricane strength against President Trump. Expect to see this...

    Someone leaked to Breitbart an hour-long video of an “all hands” Google meeting that was held just after the 2016 election. The video features Google’s co-founder, Sergei Brin, its CEO, Sundar Pichai, and numerous other high-ranking “Googlers” speaking in turn about the election’s tragic outcome. It is stunning. All of the speakers express grief over Donald Trump’s election. All of the speakers assume that every Google employee is a Democrat and is stunned and horrified that Hillary Clinton–the worst and most corrupt presidential candidate in modern history–lost. There is much discussion about what Google can do to reverse the benighted...
  • Miami Media CUTS OFF DeSantis quote [loses context!] to aid liberal propaganda

    This morning, I checked out three local stations. ABC, CBS, Fox. All three local stations LEAD with the Democrat LIE about Ron DeSantis and from what I saw NONE of them carried the full quote. As soon as DeSantis says "monkey this up", the sentence is cut off and the liberal media outrage ensues. Unbelievable.
  • Social Media Censorship II

    08/29/2018 5:32:30 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 1 replies ^ | August 29, 2018 | John Stossel
    Are those who question the severity of global warming worse than Nazis? I wouldn't think so, but YouTube, owned by Google, seems to. I wrote last week that YouTube added a Wikipedia link about global warming to videos like ones I do about climate change. Extra information sounds helpful. But when social media platforms only pick certain politically disfavored positions to add Wiki links to, they skew debate. Worse, Wikipedia's global warming page has been captured by alarmist editors. It's very one-sided. On CNN last week, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said, "I think we need to constantly show that we...
  • Nolte: Someone Tell Carl Bernstein the Cover-Up Is Worse than the Crime

    Breitbart ^ | August 28, 2018 | John Nolte
    CNN’s Carl Bernstein, the man made co-famous through his historic Watergate reporting, lied to us — to all of us. And he is now engaged in a cover up to protect this lie. I am not even talking about his fake news about the Trump Tower meeting, which I will get to in a bit — I am talking about a flat-out, provable lie. In a July 27 piece of very fake news Bernstein co-wrote with CNN anchor (and former Obama official) Jim Sciutto and researcher Marshall Cohen, Bernstein declaratively informs us, “Contacted by CNN, one of Cohen’s attorneys, Lanny...

    On July 27, CNN aired a news story in which it claimed President Donald Trump had advance knowledge of the meeting at Trump Tower between members of his campaign team and two Russians working with Fusion GPS. Despite the fact Trump has repeatedly stated that he didn’t know about this meeting until after it had occurred, two anonymous sources assured CNN that former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen personally witnessed the then-candidate for the Presidency being told the details about the forthcoming meeting. The two sources went on to claim that Cohen wanted to make this assertion to Special Counsel Robert...

    The UK Daily Mail expressed shock and horror Sunday at the fact that President Donald Trump waited only 17 hours after the death of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) to play a round of golf, as he typically does Sunday (and as President Barack Obama did before him).The Daily Mail reported, with original ALL CAPS: “Donald Trump returns to the golf course just 17 HOURS after the death of John McCain as he faces criticism for failing to properly honor GOP giant’s life and legacy.” According to the article, written by Megan Sheets, Trump was guilty of having merely posted a “meager tweet with...

    Sexist attitudes in the United States are most prevalent in the Southeast and least prevalent on the West Coast and in New England, according to a new study that highlights how sexism and gender attitudes affect earnings and job prospects for women. Researchers analyzed responses to decades of statistics and survey questions about women's roles in society and found that where a woman is born affects how much she works and earns. The study, which focused on the U.S., found that women from states where sexism is more widespread tend to get married and have children at a younger age...

    Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said on Saturday that he "fully admit[s]" Twitter employees share a largely left-leaning bias after facing accusations that conservatives are discriminated against on the social media platform. In an interview that aired Saturday on CNN, Dorsey said his company has a responsibility to be open about its political viewpoints, but to operate without bias when applying content policies to users. "We need to constantly show that we are not adding our own bias, which I fully admit more left-leaning," Dorsey says. "But the real question behind the question is, are we doing something according to...

    There she is . . . Miffed America. Cara Mund, the 2018 winner of the Miss America pageant, has traded in her crown for boxing gloves, blasting higher-ups as nothing more than mean girls who bullied, belittled and muzzled her. “About two weeks ago, I started researching workplace bullying . . . Ultimately, this is my year in a nutshell,” the former Miss North Dakota wrote to former Miss Americas in a lengthy letter made public Friday. “Our chair and CEO have systematically silenced me, reduced me, marginalized me, and essentially erased me in my role as Miss America in subtle and not-so-subtle ways...

    Shortened title. Full title: New Mexico Judge Accuses Prosecutors of Anti-Muslim Bias in Her Decision to Release Dangerous Jihadists Running Islamic Terror Camp Muslim Siraj Ibn Wahhaj was arrested earlier this month at a terrorist compound in New Mexico. Wahhaj was training children to commit mass shootings at US schools. Siraj ibn Wahhaj is the son of a Brooklyn imam who was named as a possible co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. New Mexico police entered a dangerous Islamist terrorist camp in New Mexico this month after they grew tired of FBI stalling.

    I'm confused. How is this different than every other day in the media? "The dirty war on the free press must end." That's the idea behind an unusual editorial-writing initiative that has enlisted scores of newspapers across America. Unusual? That's been the same theme that the media has been putting out for a few weeks. The Boston Globe has been contacting newspaper editorial boards and proposing a "coordinated response" to President Trump's escalating "enemy of the people" rhetoric. There's been a coordinated campaign against Republicans by the media for around 90 years. "We propose to publish an editorial on August...

    “Now, the press is absolutely a vital part of any democracy. Their rights are guaranteed in our Constitution, but so are the rights of freedom of speech, and the president calling them out for the lies that they tell,” Hannity explained. “And the American people also have a right and when they know a network is feeding them lies, propaganda, misinformation, every single second of every single minute of every single day, week after week, month after month, year after year, they are right to call them out." “But saying that you’re a liar and calling out fake news is...

    $180,000. That’s how much Sarah Sanders earns a year as White House Press Secretary. She joins 23 other White House employees in that top salary bracket. That means this is also how much she is paid to spread lies to the American people and peddle conspiracy theories on behalf of the president of the United States of America. Sanders has had her current job for a little over a year. But it’s become increasingly clear that there are very few limits to what she will do when it comes to making excuses for her boss. Being the press secretary is...

Mr. Weisselberg is considered a witness in the investigation, the people said. It isn’t known whether he has already appeared before the grand jury or what questions prosecutors of New York’s Southern District have had for him. The date of the subpoena couldn’t be determined.

    Real Clear Science ^ | 23 Jul, 2018 | Gary Lewis
    I had what seemed like rather a good idea a few weeks back. Building on some prominent findings in social psychology, I hypothesised that politicians on the right would wipe their bum with their left hand; and that politicians on the left would wipe with their right hand. Ludicrous? Yes – absolutely. But for once my goal wasn’t to run a bona fide scientific study. Instead, I wanted to see if any “journal” would publish my a**-wiping “findings”. For those who haven’t yet come across the term, “predatory journals” are becoming a bit of a nuisance in science. They actively...

    Time magazine has released the cover of its newest issue, and it makes quite a visual and political statement. The cover shows the faces of U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin morphing together. The close-up image shows the leaders' faces blended so that it's unclear where one begins and the other ends. An animated version online shows President Trump fully transforming into Putin in about 15 seconds. The cover illustrates an article on the two leaders' recent Helsinki summit and the persistent controversy over what author Brian Bennett calls President Trump's "puzzling affinity for Putin."
