  • Why Would the Washington Post Hire Someone Like Jamal Khashoggi?

    PJ Media ^ | 10/22/2018 | Robert Spencer
    The Washington Post is indignant that “hard-line Republicans and conservative commentators are mounting a whispering campaign against Jamal Khashoggi,” supposedly in order to “protect President Trump from criticism of his handling of the dissident journalist’s alleged murder by operatives of Saudi Arabia.”The Post hits these “hardliners” for highlighting Khashoggi’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, and claims that “while Khashoggi was once sympathetic to Islamist movements, he moved toward a more liberal, secular point of view.”In reality, Khashoggi was the real hardliner, supporting jihad violence and Sharia right up to the time of his murder -- even in his recent Post...

    Emily Heil reported on October 18 that Georgetown Prep was hiring a director of alumni relations, and wrote that the school posted the advertisement for the position this week. The article further suggested that the school was adding the position because of the news surrounding the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, a Georgetown Prep alum, to the Supreme Court. However, Heil was informed prior to publication of her article by a spokesperson for Georgetown Prep that the position was posted back in July. Heil specifically asked spokesperson Patrick Coyle when the alumni director job was posted, according to a copy...
  • August 2018: The U.S. is wrong about the Muslim Brotherhood — and the Arab world is suffering for it

    Washington Post ^ | August 28, 2018 | Jamal Khashoggi
    During the Obama presidency, the U.S. administration was wary of the Muslim Brotherhood, which had come to power in Egypt after the country’s first-ever free elections. Despite his declared support for democracy and change in the Arab world in the wake of the Arab Spring, then-President Barack Obama did not take a strong position and reject the coup against President-elect Mohamed Morsi. The coup, as we know, led to the military’s return to power in the largest Arab country — along with tyranny, repression, corruption and mismanagement. That is the conclusion that David D. Kirkpatrick arrives at in his excellent...

    If you get your news from the media, then you will have heard that Jamal Khashoggi was a heroic reform who sought freedom for the region, and was brutally murdered to the strains of hip-hop music by a legion of Saudi assassins. And it was all recorded on his Apple Watch. If you're interested in the facts, instead of the fake news, you probably already know that Jamal Khashoggi was a Muslim Brotherhood leader and an old friend of Osama bin Laden. He's being mourned by the media that backed the Muslim Brotherhood.
  • Thread by @KimStrassel: "1) More big breaking news, which further undercuts the Ford accusation

    1) More big breaking news, which further undercuts the Ford accusation, as well as media handling of it. A source has given me the email that WaPo reporter Emma Brown sent to Mark Judge, one person Ford claims was at the party. This email is dated Sunday, Sept. 16, 2018.... 7) So first, huge problem: This was just a week ago, and we have Ford giving two different accounts of who was present. Four boys. No, three boys, one girl. Either way, therapist notes from 2012 definitively say four boys, which Ford didn't dispute. But now... a girl! 8) Other...

    Newsmax (ugh) ^ | 19 September 2018 | Bill Hoffmann
    The site, founded by best-selling author/researcher Bert Sperling, claims that Amazon – a company whose stock surpassed $1 trillion in valuation earlier this month -- will put its roots down in a relatively remote area of Northern Virginia known as Oatlands. If that name doesn’t exactly ring a bell, don’t feel badly. Oatlands is a leafy, unincorporated community just outside Leesburg, Va. -- and Leesburg itself only has about 52,000 residents. “We can now confidently say that the new Amazon HQ2 will be located … in Northern Virginia near the Maryland border, in a small community that hasn’t been mentioned...

    Fox News ^ | 9/12/18 | Brian Flood
    The editorial board of the Washington Post has declared that President Trump is “complicit” for Hurricane Florence because of his views on climate change. The massive storm has not made landfall yet, but the Post published a column on Wednesday headlined, “Another hurricane is about to batter our coast. Trump is complicit.” The piece also notes that Trump has given “good advice” when issuing hurricane warnings via his Twitter feed before it launched an attack on the president. “When it comes to extreme weather, Mr. Trump is complicit. He plays down humans’ role in increasing the risks, and he continues...

    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 Times ^ | August 14, 2018 | Joseph Curl
    Until just weeks ago, Hillary Clinton was the face of the Democratic Party. She was quoted ad nauseam in liberal publications, appeared regularly on MSM shows and newscasts, and, as the last Democratic nominee for president, was held up as a righteous woman wronged by the horribly wrong system (Oh, America!) But all that’s changed. The new face of the Democratic Party is a 28-year-old former bartender. On June 26, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez knocked off the No. 4 Democrat in the House in a primary in New York’s 14th Congressional District, defeating Democratic Caucus Chair Joe Crowley. Since then, she’s been...

    CONSERVATIVE TREEHOUSE ^ | 8/12/2018 | SUNDANCE
    We shared a discussion thread several months ago about how the media are enmeshed within the story of the DOJ and FBI corruption. However, only recently did we discover the media engagements were not just pervasive, they were/are participatory. As a consequence the same media cannot reasonably report on any aspect of the story without exposing their own duplicity; their only choice is to double down on lies they helped create and promote. (see images) In preparation for explosive developments soon to reach critical mass CTH strongly urges everyone to think carefully about these recently discovered empirical truths: #1) The...

    Curious legal developments in the case against the former Director of Security for the Senate Intelligence Committee, James Wolfe, are beginning to become quite troublesome. In a noted bit of research timing, Jeff at MarketsWork [SEE HERE] and CTH are following the same curious trail. SEE HERE.

    In a terrific editor's column in the Washington Free Beacon, Alex Griswold delves into the embarrassing pattern of how the press keeps falling for fake tip receipt scrawl stories. The latest instance was out in Texas, where some supposedly "Christian" waiter said he got accused of being a terrorist by a restaurant customer based on his appearance and then got caught lying. Most recently, outlets as varied as the Washington Post, USA Today, HuffPo, the Dallas Morning News, Associated Press, Fox News, and CBS News, all reported on a Facebook post from Odessa, Texas, waiter named Khalil Cavill.  The 20-year-old posted a picture of a receipt he received while working...

    How I miss Barack Obama. And I say that as someone who worked to defeat him: I was a foreign policy adviser to John McCain in 2008 and to Mitt Romney in 2012. I criticized Obama’s “lead from behind” foreign policy that resulted in a premature pullout from Iraq and a failure to stop the slaughter in Syria. I thought he was too weak on Iran and too tough on Israel. I feared that Obamacare would be too costly. I fumed that he was too professorial and too indecisive. I was left cold by his arrogance and his cult of...

    The day began with a hat. It ended with the hat, too. Not literally, but nostalgically. Over the course of 12 hours, no Cézanne at the National Gallery, no forest of cherry blossom branches, no Clinton or Bush china, no goat cheese gâteau, not even Chanel haute couture could compare to that magnificent halo of pure white light perched atop first lady Melania Trump’s perfectly groomed head. Nothing else mattered. There was nothing else. That hat, broad-brimmed with a high, blocked crown, announced the first lady’s presence as boldly and theatrically as a brigade of trumpeters. It was the bright...

    The Washington Compost ^ | March 19 at 2:55 PM | Aaron Blake
    President Trump has stepped up his attacks on special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's investigation in recent days, and his lawyer even suggested that the inquiry should be shut down. And just in case the direction in which this whole thing is headed wasn't clear, Trump has now hired a lawyer who argues the president is being framed. Trump's legal team on Monday announced the hiring of Joseph E. diGenova, a former U.S. attorney who served as an independent counsel and a special counsel in the 1990s and was later hired by the New York Senate to investigate Gov. Eliot...

    Just stop, Hillary. Please. By Kathleen Parker Opinion writer March 13 at 7:52 PM She can’t let go. She can’t stop talking about what happened. She wrote an entire book about it. Now she’s telling people in other countries about why she should have won. In India last weekend, she told an audience that she won in all the smart, cool places — and then hit a pandering low that puts a catalogue of others to shame. Hillary Clinton just can’t quit herself. Not then. Not now. In case you missed it, she won the popular vote by nearly 3...

    Veteran journalist Bob Woodward criticized reporters on the right and left alike who were becoming too emotionally invested in their coverage of Donald Trump, calling them "unhinged." "You’ve described the Trump presidency as being a "test" for the news media. Do you think the media is failing the test?" asked Newsweek. The former Washington Post reporter—now an associate editor—responded journalists could always do better, including himself, but that he thought the media had not "failed" to date. "But we have a lot of work to do," he continued. "A number of reporters have at times become emotionally unhinged about it...

    The body of the Rev. Billy Graham was not even cold before the Washington Post came out with at least three hostile opinion pieces about the man as a means of remembering him. Seriously?  This is the man who once asked believers: if Christianity were illegal, would there be enough evidence to convict you? Someone who had the grace to say things like this? Someone asked me recently if I didn't think God was unfair, allowing me to have Parkinson's and other medical problems when I have tried to serve him faithfully.  I replied that I did not see it that way...
