    Former President Obama has no shame, but don’t count on the mainstream media to tell you this. They are in on the deception. His talk at the University of Illinois on Friday contained all of the divisive rhetoric that he and the mainstream press accuse President Trump of engaging in.

    The Federalist ^ | SEPTEMBER 14, 2018 | Saritha Prabhu
    Chuck Todd’s recent article in The Atlantic was an insult to the intelligence of those of us who are ordinary voters and avid media consumers. He blames conservative media and their stars for the unprecedented distrust and credibility problems mainstream media outlets face. That’s right: he thinks millions of Americans loathe and distrust the national press solely because Fox News, Tucker Carlson, and Sean Hannity regularly—and falsely, in his opinion—tell their viewers about the bias in national media. He is being either clueless or dishonest, and it might be a bit of both. Let me explain some of the many...

    ThE Daily Caller ^ | Sept 10, 2018 | Peter Hasson
    Bob Woodward’s new book “Fear” presents a scathing depiction of President Donald Trump’s administration. Woodward has a muddy history with a trail of allegations that he embellished the truth or otherwise misled his readers. Media coverage of Woodward’s book has been largely positive and ignores Woodward’s controversial record.

    “We’re doing a great job,” said President Trump yesterday in a surprise endorsement of his own success. “The poll numbers are through the roof. Our poll numbers are great. And guess what? Nobody is going to come close to beating me in 2020 because of what we’ve done.” Though Trump can always be counted on to testify to his unblemished record of winning, it was odd he chose to focus on poll numbers right at the moment, because one place they are not going is “through the roof.” In fact, Trump’s numbers are dropping to near the lowest point of...

    The Washington Post keeps insisting that President Trump lies all the time. When it's the Bezos/Baron social justice tabloid that can't stop lying. Tump suggests protesting should be illegal — Washington Post - Felicia Somnez President Trump has long derided the mainstream media as the “enemy of the people” and lashed out at NFL players for kneeling during the national anthem. On Tuesday, he took his attacks on free speech one step further, Nope. If I were in the fact checking business, this would be deemed highly misleading to extremely deceptive. The Washington Post is mischaracterizing an exchange from Trump's...
  • Fake News: CNN's 'Trump Voter' Actually an Anti-Trump Socialist

    Newsbusters ^ | August 11, 2018 | P.J. Gladnick
    On Tuesday CNN again treated supposed Trump voters as lab rats to analyze their current attitudes towards the President. As Newsbusters' Brad Wilmouth observed, CNN hinted that "Half of Trump Voters Regret Support for 'Monster.'" However, since then it has been revealed that that supposed apple Trump voter calling the President a monster on the "facts first" CNN panel was actually a virulently anti-Trump socialist banana. As Vincent James of the Red Elephants channel on YouTube revealed, those facts about the true political views of panelist Jeremy Montanez were easily available online but for CNN it seems that it's really facts last if...

    If you will pay attention, you will notice that Sacha Baron Cohen has fooled a lot of people in positions of authority and power. It is becoming apparent that a lot of these people do not pay attention to what's going on. That causes me some concern. People who are supposed to be leaders making important decisions should be aware of what is going on around them. It is very interesting that a gun shop owner who is not a person of high authority quickly recognized who he was. It seems to me that people with a solid foundation of...
  • Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez draws Bronx cheer for misleading campaign bio

    The Democratic Socialist candidate seeking to represent New York’s 14th Congressional District is facing backlash over her working class “Bronx girl” campaign narrative. As the Journal News reported, the original online bio for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez -- the 28-year-old Bernie Sanders protégé who defeated longtime Democratic incumbent U.S. Rep. Joseph Crowley on June 26 -- seemed to suggest that she commuted to a school in the suburbs from her family's home in the Bronx borough of New York City. But after critics noted that she and her family left the Bronx when she was 5 years old, the bio was changed...

    Trump-hating FBI official Peter Strzok created a fake timeline of the Weiner email recovery in order to leave a misleading record for the file. Strzok also created this document to get everyone in Comey’s inner circle on the same page. This is similar to what Susan Rice did when she sent herself a bizarre email on the same day Donald Trump was being sworn into office.

    The Truth About Guns ^ | 06/30/18 | Dean Weingarten
    In the early reporting of the Capital Gazette mass murder, Conor Berry, a reporter for a Massachusetts newspaper, The Republican, tweeted that the shooter had dropped his MAGA hat on the newsroom floor before opening fire. It was a stupid remark, not to mention one for which Berry had no supporting facts, which he has since acknowledged. What makes such tweets particularly toxic is that they color early perceptions of these events, and tend to become urban legends and the stuff of conspiracy theories. BerryÂ’s tweet was similar to earlier instances such as cable talking heads speculating that other shooters...

    There are few things more damaging to the liberal media’s credibility than conflicts of interest and false/fake stories. For CNN, it was the latter on Friday’s New Day as co-host Alisyn Camerota treated former Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett to a softball interview, but failed to disclose that Valerie’s daughter (Laura Jarrett) is a CNN Justice correspondent. If CNN wants to lecture Fox News or anyone else in the media about ethics, perhaps it should lead the way in transparency. And, no, it shouldn’t be assumed all viewers are able to make the connection between Laura and Valerie Jarrett. The...

    Who do you trust? Who can we trust? This is an open question, for which I personally don’t have many answers. I ask this at a personal level, societal level, and global level. I’m not a cynical person, but like many I am currently disillusioned and disappointed by what I see as a world in which deceit is acceptable - if it is an ends to a personal means and advances one’s self interest, and a world in which ‘honor’ doesn’t seem to be as valued a concept as I perceive it once was – at least in the abstract....

    President Donald Trump has now spent almost one-third of his time in office at his own properties and has played more golf than President Obama over the same period. The president has visited one of his properties on 112 days of his presidency, according to a count NBC News updated Wednesday in the midst of Trump's 10-day Christmas vacation at Mar-a-Lago—his private club in Palm Beach. U.S. taxpayers paid $6.6 million in airfare alone this year for Trump’s frequent trips to Mar-a-Lago, according to U.S. Air Force records. Trump also spent part or all of about 40 days at his...

    President Trump on Sunday accused The Wall Street Journal of “falsely” reporting him saying he has a “good relationship” with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and publishing so-called fake news because the newspaper wanted a big story. “The Wall Street Journal stated falsely that I said to them ‘I have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un’ (of N. Korea). Obviously I didn’t say that. I said ‘I’d have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un,’ a big difference. Fortunately we now record conversations with reporters,” Trump said over two tweets. “And they knew exactly what I said and...

    ABC News has demoted its embattled chief investigative correspondent, Brian Ross, after he botched an “exclusive” report on Donald Trump and Russia. News President James Goldston announced to staffers on Friday that Ross would be reassigned to ABC News’ outside production house, Lincoln Square Productions. Ross, who had been scheduled to return from a four-week, unpaid suspension on Thursday, will not be resuming his former, longtime role. He is believed to be retaining his title of “chief investigative correspondent” though he is not expected to be seen on ABC with live reports, so it’s unclear how he will perform those...

    The New York Times, citing only anonymous sources, accused President Trump of saying Haitians “all have AIDS” and Nigerians live in “huts,” and several attendees at the meeting then went on the record to say the accusations were false. According to The Times’ report, the president was furious after seeing a report of how many foreigners had entered the country since he became president. “More than 2,500 were from Afghanistan, a terrorist haven, the president complained

    Ten years ago, a family arrived in the Bronx from Yaoundé, Cameroon, not speaking a word of English. This Christmas, they are celebrating a feat that would be impressive for any family: Three of the family’s five daughters have been accepted to Ivy League universities. In a year in which our nativist president would have you believe that immigrants are, at best, a job-stealing drain and at worst, criminals, rapists and people with AIDS, these three remarkable sisters are worth paying attention to. Not just because they are inspiring — they are — but because they are far better ambassadors...

    WEST DES MOINES, IOWA Ask someone like Sam Banks about the tax plan President Donald Trump signed into law Friday, and you hear something other than the effusive joy Republicans in Congress put on display this week. The $1.5 trillion plan cuts taxes broadly while bestowing its richest benefits on companies and wealthy individuals. It is the first major legislative achievement for a president who rode to the White House with the full-throated backing of people like Banks who felt America's economic policies needed a drastic overhaul. Yet Banks, a 50-year-old farmer in sparsely populated southwestern Iowa, regards the tax...
