  • CBC Fake News Show Hires Actor to Portray Racist Trump Supporter

    NewsBusters ^ | January 24, 2017 | P.J. Gladnick
    It seems that the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Marketplace show was unable to find a racist Trump supporter. Instead, they hired an actor named Mike to portray one as you shall see. Mike's job as a racist Trump supporter was to sell a couple of White Power T-shirts along with a "Make Canada Great Again" T-shirt. It was their laughably unsubtle attempt to link Donald Trump to racism.

    On Monday's Morning Joe, MSNBC's Joe Scarborough prompted hippie icon Graham Nash of Crosby, Stills, and Nash fame to promote his new song about the police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Nash wildly contended that "what happened with...almost, the execution of Michael Brown, we had to say something."

    Montana State Senator Amanda Curtis (D-76 Dist.) is running for U.S. Senate and will no doubt be trying to run away from her past statements mocking guns, Christianity, the Bible, and the family. She just stepped into the race in place of John Walsh, the Democrat candidate who had to step down amid a plagiarism scandal.

    Ben Affleck has been off the radar for a while, coming out of his married-with-kidslife only for bigger films (and maybe to cheat!). We all thought he was taking time off to prepare for his political career, but he’s reportedly nixed it amidst fear of all his scandals which would be stirred up in the campaign process! The father of three has a dark past, which he isn’t eager to put back on the radar! An insider reported his decision to National Enquirer, print edition January 21, 2013. “The real reason he’s decided not to run for US Senate” is...

    The ink is barely dry on President Obama’s Commandment that the Catholic church and everyone else provide free birth control to all employees, and already Washington state is headed for the real goal of liberals — free abortions for everyone! Nearly 40 years after the Supreme Court ruled that abortion on demand is a constitutionally protected right (voiding the right to life declared in the Declaration of Independence) the government is working on making abortion free in the name of women’s health. The proposal in Washington state would allow an opt-out for the Catholic church but it is unclear just...

    Flash Mob Loots 7-11 Store in Germantown, Maryland A flash mob invaded a 7-11 convenience store in Germantown, Md., early Saturday morning, stole all the snacks and candy they could get their hands on, then left the store as quickly as they came. "It was anarchy for 60 seconds," said Montgomery County Police spokesman Paul Starks. "We've counted at least 28 individuals we can see on the surveillance tape." Starks said police suspect the mob was organized using social media like Facebook or Twitter. The term flash mob was first used to describe impromptu gatherings of people to sing or...

He’ll be leaving CNN at the end of the week. Henry left college early to go to...

    Russian immigrants to Israel have emerged as a central obstacle to achieving a Middle East peace deal, according to former President Bill Clinton. He voiced fears that the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), which increasingly consists of soldiers hailing from this community, might not be fully willing to oppose Israeli settlers as a result. In a roundtable with reporters during his Clinton Global Initiative conference in New York, Clinton made his most extensive remarks on the Israeli-Palestinian peace process that his wife, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, is spearheading. "An increasing number of the young people in the IDF are the...

    As the mainstream media hyperventilate over what is now regularly being referred to as rightwing hate speak, liberal talk radio host Mike Malloy Friday actually called for conservative talkers Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and Bill O'Reilly to commit suicide. "You rat bastards are going to cause another Murrah federal building explosion," said Malloy. "[M]aybe at that point Beck will do the honorable thing and blow his brains out." He disgustingly continued, "Maybe at that point, Limbaugh will do the honorable thing and just gobble up enough - enough Viagra that he becomes absolutely rigid and keels over dead."

"It is not in the interest of the United States, at a time when it is being threatened by Islamist terrorists, to assist the creation of another state that will support terrorism," the former New York mayor said.

    In the 7:30 segment of this mornings show, GMA host Robin Roberts announced she has been diagnosed with breast cancer. She has no family history of the disease. It was found on a routine ultrasound exam, not traditional mammography. The type of cancer she reportedly has is more readily detected via ultrasound than mammography. No prognosis was given, but Roberts and Diane Sawyer indicated the cancer had been caught early. ABC has been hit hard by health problems with anchors recently. Among the more serious issues, Peter Jennings died of lung cancer and Bob Woodward was seriously wounded in Iraq....

    Coloradans Protest Statue of Fallen Soldier April 10, 2007 at 12:22 pm When reading about the story of protests in Colorado over the raising of a memorial statue to a fallen U.S. Soldier, one is tempted to feel that Americans have lost every vestige of manhood that it ever possessed. Just the very fact that someone would be so free of patriotism and testosterone that they’d protest this statue should be enough to affirm that there are no men left in the nation… or at least in the state of Colorado. Fortunately, the final analysis of the case tends to...

Mr. Kyl “has spent his time in Washington kowtowing to the Bush administration and the radical right,” the article suggests, “very often to the detriment of Arizonans.” Searching Google for “Peter King,” the Republican congressman from Long Island, would bring up a link to a Newsday article headlined “King Endorses Ethnic Profiling.”...

    'Green' Lib Dems promise they will penalise wealth By George Jones and Brendan Carlin (Filed: 20/09/2006) The Liberal Democrats took a decisive shift to the Left yesterday by enthusiastically adopting a tax package which could leave two million people £2,500 a year worse off. Although the party leadership claimed it would hit only the "top 10 per cent" – and millions of lower-income people would pay less tax – the measures will begin to bite on a family with an income over £54,000 a year. As Charles Kennedy received a warm reception on his return to the political front line...

"As we begin a dialogue on the findings of this report, I would like to congratulate the Climate Action Team for their hard work and dedication to reducing greenhouse gases," said Governor Schwarzenegger.

    ST. PAUL (AP) - DFLer Patty Wetterling has sent a fund-raising letter to supporters that says she needs help to make her dream of becoming a U.S. Senator a reality. Party chairman Mike Erlandson told KSTP-TV that the letter was clearly an early indication that Wetterling is running for the Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Mark Dayton, who has announced he will not run for re-election next year. Erlandson said it's too early to call Wetterling the favorite for the DFL nomination. Hennepin County Attorney Amy Klobuchar also said she's moving ahead with fund-raising for a Senate bid. She...

President Bush must be feeling so victorious. The Senate has now said yes to drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge—the pristine place President Eisenhower took measures to protect in 1960. advertisement Environmental groups have said the fight isn’t over, and I want to believe there is still something we can do—write letters, e-mails, rise up en masse and say no.

Scholars will probably wonder what drove legions of conservatives to hate Clinton with such fury that they wasted years and spent a king's ransom trying to drive him from office. They will no doubt note that Clinton accomplished much despite the "vast right-wing conspiracy": He righted the nation's finances after decades of dangerous deficits.

    There are some cultural crimes that transcend mere human concerns like life, liberty and the pursuit of oil. Today, we mourn a loss that beggars the imagination. A hundred generations from now, our heirs will curse us for what happened in Baghdad on April 11-12, 2003. The origins of the war in Iraq may have really been the cruelty of the Saddam Hussein regime; they may have been simple revenge or pure capitalist greed. It doesn't matter. The fact is, Saddam did not start this war — we did, and that fact imposed certain responsibilities on us. We took the...
