    Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Saturday called Fox News “AOC TMZ” and blamed the conservative network for her poor favorability rating in a new poll. A Gallup poll released Friday showed that more Americans, 41 percent, viewed her unfavorably than favorably (31 percent). Her unfavorably rating climbed up from 26 percent in September, while her favorability rating also increased from 24 percent, meaning her net favorability dropped from -2 percentage points to -10 percentage points. Ocasio-Cortez responded by tweeting that she has net favorable ratings from women, people ages 18 to 34 and people who are not white. “If you...

    Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has expressed his opinion on Saturday's fracas between an anti-immigrant senator and the teenager who smashed an egg on his head during a press event. Morrison said Sunday that Senator Fraser Anning should feel the full force of the law for allegedly punching the teen who egged him.

    A Florida mom and pediatrician warned parents to better monitor their children’s internet activity after she found a disturbing clip that appeared to encourage children to harm themselves, inserted into gaming videos on YouTube and YouTube Kids. Dr. Free Hess, from Gainesville, Florida, found the 9-second-long suicide instructions sandwiched between clips of the Nintendo game Splatoon last week and shared it online to caution other parents. "Remember kids, sideways for attention, longways for results," a man said while demonstrating the cutting motion on his arm. "End it." The man, identified by CBS News as YouTuber Filthy Frank, has over 6.2...

    FULL TITLE: Fox News Hosts Create CNN, Mueller Conspiracy Theory Surrounding Roger Stone Arrest, Demand Investigation Fox News hosts past and present are touting a meta cable news conspiracy theory claiming special counsel Robert Mueller tipped off CNN prior to Roger Stone's Friday arrest. Sean Hannity and Jeanine Pirro are touting a baseless accusation first concocted on Twitter by former Fox News host Greta Van Susteren that their rival cable news network CNN was "obviously tipped off" by Mueller's office in cahoots with the FBI. Van Susteren later apologized and recanted the claim, but right-wing news media immediately pounced on...

    Legendary journalist Carl Bernstein has said that he’s been told that special counsel Robert Mueller’s report will show how President Donald Trump helped Russia “destabilize the United States.” Bernstein, who is renowned for his coverage of the Watergate scandal that led to the resignation of former President Richard Nixon, appeared on CNN’s Reliable Sources on Sunday to discuss two bombshell reports released this weekend, one from The New York Times and one from The Washington Post, which revealed new details about whether or not Trump and his aides have colluded with Russia.

    The media has been in a frenzy since President Trump paid a surprise visit to troops in an Iraqi combat zone, outraged that some soldier had sought autographs from their commander in chief. They said little when both Barack and Michelle Obama made similar gestures to the troops. Newsweek went so far as to seek out an Obama appointed former White House ethics chief to call the President’s actions in signing such as items as MAGA hats, “truly disgusting.” “Trump’s engaging in campaign activity during this trip is on Trump and Trump alone,” Walter Shaub raged. “Disgusting. Truly disgusting. Shame!”...

    **SNIP** Kerry, in a tweet, also said it was "pathetic" and "demoralizing to public servants everywhere," that Trump would, "defame a public servant who joined the Bush Administration and stayed on the last two years to help Iraq & defeat ISIL." Kerry worked with McGurk during his time as secretary of state for the Obama administration. As mentioned by Kerry, McGurk served in the George W. Bush White House and was appointed to his most recent anti-ISIS role in 2015 under Obama. McGurk resigned amid the fallout in Washington from Trump’s recent, abrupt decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria...

    FULL TITLE: Newsweek Publishes Propaganda From Actual SPY Attempting to Gain Support for Prosecution of Julian Assange Newsweek isn’t even being discreet about their embrace of outright Deep State propaganda anymore. On Saturday, the increasingly-irrelevant outlet published an article from actual intelligence agency spy Naveed Jamali, in which he attempts to gain support for the prosecution of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. “Like many current and former members of the intelligence community, I’ve been frustrated by the unwillingness of our government to act against Assange and Wikileaks,” Jamali admits in his ranting article. Caitlin Johnstone reports: “Jamali is currently a reserve...

    Newsweek tried to tie a comment made by Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis to the pipe bomb sent to Hillary Clinton on Wednesday. DeSantis, who is running for governor in Florida, said in an email to supporters on Tuesday that a visit from Clinton could be the “kiss of death” for his opponent, Andrew Gillum, “I want to make sure that Andrew Gillum knows that inviting his failed presidential candidate is the WORST mistake of his campaign,” the DeSantis email said. “I want Hillary Clinton’s visit to be a kiss of death.” A Newsweek article linked that rhetoric to the...

    Manhattan prosecutors have charged Newsweek’s parent company, IBT Media, with carrying out a plot to defraud lenders out of millions of dollars as it struggles to remain profitable.

  • Evan Thomas Compares Donald Rumsfeld to Satan in The New York Times

    Former Newsweek correspondent Evan Thomas famously described Barack Obama on MSNBC as standing “above the world, he’s sort of God." In a Sunday New York Times book review of a new book by Donald Rumsfeld, he implies Rumsfeld is sort of Satan. The book is titled When the Center Held, about the brief presidency of Gerald Ford. Thomas reached for John Bunyan’s 17th-century Christian allegory The Pilgrim’s Progress for metaphors about Ford: Rumsfeld has written a kind of modern-day Pilgrim’s Progress about a good and godly man who enters the Slough of Despond (Washington, D.C.), is tried and tempted, but...

    This week marks Andrea Mitchell’s 40th anniversary at NBC News, and the network has been filled with tributes to her. But when it comes to gushing, it will be hard to top Willie Geist’s effort, which aired during Mitchell’s MSNBC show today: “You are one of a very small handful of icons in our business, about whom a young journalist thinks: I can’t even believe I work in the same news division where she works. It always has been a privilege, and that awe has never gone away.” The tribute ended with a still shot of Mitchell warmly holding hands...

    There is no visible indication that North Korea has begun dismantling missile launch sites as reportedly promised, according to satellite imagery shared by 38 North.

There are six known launch and engine testing facilities as well as two eject test stands scattered throughout North Korea. "Of these...

    The U.S. government once wanted to plan false flag attacks with Soviet aircraft to justify war with the USSR or its allies, newly declassified documents surrounding the assassination of President John F. Kennedy show. In a three-page memo, members of the National Security Council wrote, "There is a possibility that such aircraft could be used in a deception operation designed to confuse enemy planes in the air, to launch a surprise attack against enemy installations or in a provocation operation in which Soviet aircraft would appear to attack US or friendly installations to provide an excuse for U.S. intervention."

They have the entire campaign’s texts.”

    Lebanon held on Sunday its first parliamentary elections in nine years, as citizens expressed cautious optimism that the country's rigid, oft-deadlocked sectarian political system could be swayed. Behind the scenes, however, one of the world's leading powers has quietly eyed the small state as a potential ground to project its power in the Middle East and into the Mediterranean. But it won't be easy. With Syrian rebels and jihadis at bay, and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government set to further extend its comeback, Russia has pursued a cautious overture across the border into Lebanon—a $1 billion dollar arms deal, including...
