    Twitter did little to prevent the circulation of a misleading picture allegedly showing Derek Chauvin — the police officer who put his knee on the neck of 46-year-old George Floyd while he begged to breathe and died shortly after — wearing a red baseball hat with the wording “Make Whites Great Again.” The incident Several Minneapolis police officers stirred controversy and prompted rioting after the incident Monday in Minneapolis. Video of the arrest shows one officer, believed to be Derek Chauvin, pressing Floyd with his knee against the road as Floyd gasps for air. Floyd was later pronounced dead at...
  • How Obama just endorsed Trump

    The Hill ^ | 5/28/2020 | Adam Goodman
    Just when we thought we’d seen it all, heard it all, we are hit with another surreal shocker certain to wend its way into the narrative, and onto paid media as the 2020 presidential derby charges forward. In two recent virtual commencement addresses, former President Barack Obama took aim at Trump by questioning his willingness, much less his ability, to lead. Predictably, the left roared in delight while the right howled in protest. Yet lost in the partisan noise was a more telling passage of prose Obama uttered that day, words that may have eluded vetting by his political handlers...

    The Republican National Committee (RNC) on Tuesday released a new ad highlighting some of the biggest controversies of the Obama-Biden administration. Not a “single hint of a scandal” Both Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate, and former President Obama have insisted that their administration was scandal-free. “Know what I was most proud of? For eight years, there wasn’t one single hint of a scandal or a lie,” Biden said during the rally in Iowa last year.

    President Trump said Wednesday that he will “strongly regulate” or even “close down” social media platforms, one day after Twitter flagged two of his posts. The president made the vow on Twitter after the social media platform added a message to the tweets that linked to a page disputing the accuracy of his posts. Trump and other conservatives argue that social media is censuring or silencing their messages. Read more “Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives voices,” Trump said over two tweets Wednesday morning. “We will strongly regulate, or close them down, before we can ever allow...

    American Greatness ^ | 5/26/2020 | Conrad Black
    The battle lines on the issue of ending the economic shutdown are drawn more sharply each week. The terror campaign conducted by the media when the coronavirus outbreak began effectively compelled President Trump and most governors to follow the advice of the audible scientists and “flatten the curve” with a comprehensive shutdown requiring huge numbers of people to stay at home. As the unemployment figures that resulted mounted swiftly toward 40 million, the American Left, now including almost all the official Democrats and almost all the national political media, became instantly addicted to the prospect of holding the president responsible...

    Actress Rose McGowan has come out as one of the rare prominent members of the #MeToo movement who is backing Tara Reade’s sexual assault allegations against presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. Reade’s claims Reade is a former Senate legislative aide to Biden who claims that in 1993, the then-Delaware senator sexually assaulted her by pushing her “up against the wall,” and going “down my skirt and then up inside it and he penetrated me with his fingers.” Though several family members, former colleagues, and neighbors have corroborated key details in Reade’s story, her credibility has been questioned by the...

    Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) falsely suggested late last week that presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden did not really make his “you ain’t black” remark that was widely condemned as racist and arrogant. During an interview on “The Breakfast Club” with co-host Charlamagne Tha God, Biden said, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” Lee made the false claim during an appearance on Fox News when asked about the remark during an interview with anchor Bret Baier.

    GQ magazine was severely mocked for publishing an opinion piece that incorrectly said former Alabama segregationist governor George Wallace was a Republican. The op-ed, penned by Laura Bassett, described Wallace, a former presidential candidate, as a Republican who backed abortion so there would be fewer children for the government to support. Just one catch: Wallace was a Democrat.

    On his top-rated talk radio program Thursday, Rush Limbaugh kicked off a segment by announcing a rare honor bestowed by the “EIB Limbaugh Institute”: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is now officially “the closest that we’ve ever had to a graduate” of his prestigious institute, Limbaugh said. The reason the Republican governor has been awarded the honor, the host explained, is his thorough throttling of the media for their partisan coverage of his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. “I want to start with a graduate or the closest that we’ve ever had to a graduate, of the EIB Limbaugh Institute, and...

    Facebook has taken action against PragerU’s page on the platform for what it described as “repeated sharing of false news.” In detail: Facebook has reduced the page’s reach and banned it from running ads on the platform or using its monetizing features. PragerU, the conservative non-profit, announced the move on Twitter earlier this week, accusing Facebook of censorship.

    Democrats appear to be having a media moment. In the last several weeks, several mainstream outlets have churned out at least three glowing profiles and one other flattering piece on prominent Democrats. The latest comes from the New York Times with the headline: “Immigrant Twin Brothers Battle Trump Machine on Facebook.” Reporter Nick Corasaniti, profiles Rafael and Omar Rivero, immigrants from Mexico who founded the Facebook page Occupy Democrats, calling them “social media mavens of the left who are quickly emerging as a counterweight to the dominance of right-wing online sites.”

    EXCLUSIVE: Thirty-seven Planned Parenthood affiliates applied for and received a total of $80 million in loans from the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight" has learned -- and now the federal government wants the money back, saying the affiliates should have known they weren't eligible for the coronavirus stimulus payouts. The Small Business Administration (SBA) is reaching out to each involved Planned Parenthood affiliate explaining that affiliates of larger organizations with more than 500 employees aren't eligible for PPP distributions, Fox News is told. The Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PFFA) alone has had more than 600...

    The FBI was “heavily” dependant on media leaks and so-called “news hooks” to further its Crossfire Hurricane investigation into the eventually-disproved claims of collusion between President Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia, according to a new analysis of public records by the Daily Caller News Foundation. The analysis by investigative reporter Chuck Ross highlights five significant news reports the FBI used to justify its advancement of the investigation into the Trump campaign, many of which reports revolved around the incriminating information contained in the discredited dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele.

    The FBI has established a firm link between Al-Qaeda and Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, the Saudi aviation student who killed three U.S. service members and injured eight other Americans during a terrorist attack at the Pensacola naval airbase in Florida in December 2019. The FBI found that Alshamrani, who was killed in the attack, had “significant ties” to Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and frequently contacted operatives in the terrorist organization, even on the night before the attack, the leaders of the Justice Department (DOJ) and the FBI announced Monday.

    The American Prospect ^ | 5-18-2020 | Alexander Sammon
    No matter how you slice it, what happened in last week’s special election for California’s 25th Congressional District was not good for Democrats. In resounding fashion, Democratic hopeful Christy Smith, a state assemblywoman from Santa Clarita, was beaten by Republican defense industry executive Mike Garcia. While ballots are still being counted in what was an almost all-mail-in election, recent tallies had Garcia, a Trump endorsee, trouncing Smith by a double-digit margin .... Smith conceded quickly. There are the coronavirus caveats. Stay-at-home orders meant low turnout, which favored Garcia: older, whiter, and more-affluent voters tend to vote by mail already and...
