  • What the hell was Brian Williams thinking?

    04/07/2017 12:16:19 PM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 27 replies
    MSNBC’s Brian Williams came under fire Friday for coming up with another broadcast “beauty” during his coverage of the US strike on Syria. Williams – who was famously bounced from his NBC gig for fabricating stories – was apparently mesmerized by the sight of cruise missiles blazing through the night sky. “We see these beautiful pictures at night from the decks of these two UN Navy vessels in the eastern Mediterranean,” Williams told his viewers on “The 11th Hour.” “I am tempted to quote the great Leonard Cohen: ‘I am guided by the beauty of our weapons,’” he added. “They...
  • Border Agent Brian Terry statue unveiling ignored by Obama and Holder

    Examiner ^ | 3/2/15 | David Codrea
    The unveiling of a new statue built to memorialize the murdered U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry on Saturday at the Homeland Security Department's Brian Terry Border Patrol Station in Bisbee, Arizona, received minimal news coverage by the nation's media except for the Fox News Channel, a news agency maligned and denigrated by President Barack Obama and his administration. In fact, no official from the Obama government attended the event and the sycophants in the legacy media made certain not to cover the story. In the battle at the Mexican-U.S. border, Obama and his minions seem to have chosen the...

    How in the world did NBC News let its biggest star and face of its division run around America for more than ten years telling stolen valor lies, lie-lies, whoppers, white lies, exaggerations, and — if you want to be charitable — embellishments. Brian Williams didn’t just spew bald-faced lies from David Letterman’s couch. He lied repeatedly on the air at NBC News and its affiliates. He lied to NBC News legend Tim Russert. Stories Williams’ shared with NBC’s own Tom Brokaw both on the air and at Columbia Journalism school are now disputed. Things told to other reporters don’t...

    Here we go again… NBC anchor Brian Williams said he has close contacts in the Pentagon and they got him a piece of the fuselage of the chopper shot down in the Bin Laden raid in Abbottabad. Williams says he has one piece and Barack Obama has the other. Via Sooper Mexican: “I have something that fits that perfectly. I have friends among the Special Operations folks in the Pentagon. And I have a piece of the fuselage of the chopper that didn’t make it in Abbottabad. It’s one of the toughest things to get. And the president has a...

Rogers, a longtime Amash foe, told the paper that he's "likely" to support businessman Brian Ellis, while Camp said he was also open to backing Ellis in the race.

    "I need money". Greedy illegal alien Roy Ortiz is suing those who saved his life.- by Brian Hayes | Top Right NewsLast month we profiled an illegal alien felon who made nearly $200,000 by mass-filing frivolous lawsuits against L.A. restaurants. But that was just a creep trying to game the system, and the system (shamefully) letting him. This is truly disgusting. An illegal alien in Colorado is suing several first responders who took part in rescuing him last September, when he became trapped in his car during a flash flood. You heard that right. They saved Roy Ortiz' life --...

    A Mexican man was sentenced Monday to 30 years in prison in the December 2010 murder of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry in ATF’s Fast and Furious gunwalking case. Manuel Osorio-Arellanes was wounded at the crime scene and pleaded guilty to first degree murder. Terry's sister, Kelly Terry-Willis told Osorio-Arellanes at the sentencing hearing in federal court in Tucson, Ariz., that he was a coward who had chosen the wrong path in life, the Associated Press reported. She also described her brother as a loving and devoted family man - "a man who loved God and life," according to the...

    CBS News ^ | 01-21-2014 | SHARYL ATTKISSON
    In a new development in the Fast and Furious gunwalking case, the Justice Department's Inspector General (IG) is making inquiries into the possible existence of a missing third weapon in the 2010 murder of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, CBS News has learned. According to sources close to the investigation, the IG is questioning the Border Patrol’s evidence collection team this week in Tucson, Ariz. The Justice Department, which oversees ATF and the FBI - and which is investigating Terry’s murder - has steadfastly denied the existence of a third gun. Court records have previously only mentioned two weapons: Romanian...

    Justice Department (DOJ) officials indicted five individuals for the death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry — who was murdered by drug traffickers armed through Operation Fast and Furious – and a $1 million reward for information leading to their arrest. “Agent Terry served his country honorably and made the ultimate sacrifice in trying to protect it from harm, and we will stop at nothing to bring those responsible for his murder to justice,” Attorney General Eric Holder said today. “This investigation has previously resulted in one defendant being charged with Agent Terry’s murder and taken into custody, and...

    Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry’s mother and father released a statement today on President Obama’s executive privilege. “Attorney General Eric Holder’s refusal to fully disclose the documents associated with Operation Fast and Furious and President Obama’s assertion of executive privilege serves to compound this tragedy. It denies the Terry family and the American people the truth.” Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry “was killed by members of a Mexican drug cartel armed with weapons from this failed Justice Department gun trafficking investigation. For more than 18 months we have been asking our federal government for justice and accountability. The documents sought...

    Big Journalism ^ | 4/3/2012 | Ben Shapiro
    A very specific set of words was cut. It was not random. And it was not a mistake. So the question becomes: whose head should roll? The answer is obvious: Brian Williams. Williams has been, since 2004, the managing editor of NBC News. And this was no mistake. It was a purposeful attempt to drive the narrative against Zimmerman. It is Williams’ job to see that the facts are reported rather than skewed. And the buck stops with him. This is no isolated incident for Williams. He’s an ardent leftist who began his career by interning for Jimmy Carter. When...

And what is their place? For Bridson, it would be better for all Catholics to live at the Vatican because their views do not belong in the public square. Maybe he would...

    In an interview with President Obama's outgoing assistant Reggie Love on NBC's Rock Center Monday night, host Brian Williams fawned over the First Family: "...like a retro almost 1950s American family, that there's a – kind of a wholesomeness about them. They play board games, they play on the floor of the living room with the dog, they're not – the girls aren't allowed a lot of TV and social media." [Audio available here] Williams opened the interview with Love by touting how the presidential body man, "famously carried the President's Sharpies and Altoids and chap stick and

    A defensive Brian Williams appeared on Wednesday's Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to explain away Barack Obama's handling of the situation in Libya. He also hit the show's for having a "political 'tude" against the President, complaining, "I've never heard you go into this area before."After the comedian knocked Obama for "playing soccer in Rio," Williams labeled that "unfair." He added, "The President has scrambled phones. He's got video conferencing."Following jokes from Fallon about the President's NCAA picks, the NBC Nightly News anchor sarcastically replied, "I think we've seen a little political 'tude coming out tonight. This is interesting."

    NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams appeared on the BBC podcast Americana on Sunday and asserted that "hatred" and "venom" were part of the health care debate. He then hyperbolically claimed, "I would sooner jab my hand into a food processor than take a side." [MP3 Audio available here.] The NBC journalist seriously trumpeted, "In my line of work I never engage in opinions, anyway." BBC presenter Matt Frei interviewed Williams for the podcast. (H/T to DB from the Biased BBC website.) After Frei asked if the health care battle was for the "soul of America," the news anchor oddly...
