  • Free Beacon Reporter: Trump Wanting To Fire Mueller Story Aimed

    Yes, some were a bit frustrated that we posted about The New York TimesÂ’ late Thursday night story about President Donald Trump wanting to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller last June. The fact of the matter is it never happened, but it would certainly rehash the Russian collusion hysteria that has gripped the news media since Trump won the 2016 election. CBS: Allegations Tainted FBI Agents "Pulled Punches" During Clinton Email ProbeYet, Washington Free Beacon reporter Liz Harrington noted the odd timing of the leaked story, noting it came two hours after it was reported that FBI agent Peter Strzok...

    The Washington Post published a bombshell on the discredited Trump dossier on Tuesday. As Kristinn Taylor reported earlier on The Gateway Pundit the WaPo article claims the 2016 presidential campaign of Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee paid for the Fusion GPS dossier alleging Russian ties with the presidential campaign of Republican Donald Trump and sordid phony personal smears of Trump.The Post reported that Clinton campaign and DNC lawyer Marc Elias and his law firm Perkins Coie paid Fusion GPS to continue researching Trump after a Republican donor who originally funded the research pulled out in...

    New York Slimes Fake Identification Desk ^ | October 27, 2017 | VOGEL and HABERMAN, Attention Misdirectors
    The Washington Free Beacon, a conservative website funded by a major Republican donor, was the first to hire the firm that conducted opposition research on Donald J. Trump — including a salacious dossier describing ties between Mr. Trump and the Russian government — website representatives told the House Intelligence Committee on Friday. According to people briefed on the conversation, the website hired the firm, Fusion GPS, in October 2015 to unearth damaging information about several Republican presidential candidates, including Mr. Trump. But The Free Beacon told the firm to stop doing research on Mr. Trump in May 2016, as Mr....

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | 10/27/17 | Matthew Continetti and Michael Goldfarb
    Since its launch in February of 2012, the Washington Free Beacon has retained third party firms to conduct research on many individuals and institutions of interest to us and our readers. In that capacity, during the 2016 election cycle we retained Fusion GPS to provide research on multiple candidates in the Republican presidential primary, just as we retained other firms to assist in our research into Hillary Clinton. All of the work that Fusion GPS provided to the Free Beacon was based on public sources, and none of the work product that the Free Beacon received appears in the Steele...

    The Washington Free Beacon, funded by GOP mega-donor Paul Singer was reportedly the original funder of Fusion GPS’ research project that attempted to dig up dirt on then-candidate Donald Trump — a project that would later be funded by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign. The Washington Examiner reported Friday that lawyers for the Free Beacon — a plucky conservative outlet based in the nation’s capital — funded the project from fall 2015 to spring 2016, when it pulled its funding.

    Florida Sen. Marco Rubio said Thursday his presidential campaign wasn't involved in research behind the infamous dirty dossier – a day after President Donald Trump said the campaign's identity will 'probably' be revealed. Rubio got asked about the dossier amid a new round of intrigue over who paid for the research, after the Washington Post reported that Democratic lawyer Marc Elias hired a political intelligence firm, Fusion GPS, who in turn hired ex-British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, who compiled it. It has long been reported that a Republican anti-Trump donor initially paid for the research that begat the dossier. But...

  • Clinton Fundraising Email Warns of ‘Wild Ride’ With Donald Trump As Her Opponent

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | April 27, 2016 | David Rutz
    A new Hillary Clinton fundraising email wants donations to help handle the “wild ride” that awaits if her Republican opponent winds up being businessman Donald Trump. Deputy Communications Director Christina Reynolds assailed Trump’s remarks Tuesday evening after his sweep of five primary states where he said Clinton’s only asset was “the woman’s card.” Trump suggested Clinton would not even reach five percent of the vote if she were a man, and Reynolds said Trump’s “dangerous rhetoric” meant Clinton needed to be as prepared as possible: After Donald Trump won all five primaries last night, he launched into an absurd diatribe...

    Sometimes, you really have to give the New York Times credit for the sheer amount of reportorial labor it undertakes. This is not one of those times. A couple of Times reporters spent Friday morning basking in praise for their “nice scoop” — the less-than-remarkable public knowledge that Marco Rubio was written four traffic tickets over the course of two decades — but, as Brent Scher of the Washington Free Beacon pointed out, neither of the reporters in the byline — Alan Rappeport and Steve Eder — nor the researcher also credited by the Times for the piece — Kitty...

    A flock of (relatively) new conservative media sites have gained attention in the mainstream-ish media over the past few weeks, a function of their increased role in driving political attention and, in some cases, their savvy in redirecting Facebook's traffic hose toward themselves. Bloomberg's Dave Weigel notes a series of scoops from the Washington Free Beacon (largely focused on Hillary Clinton); at Slate, Betsy Woodruff explains Twitchy. At the Awl, John Herrman noted the rise of the Independent Journal Review, which "landed big" on Facebook. For all of this success, for all of the novelty of new sites with sharp...
  • The ‘Othering’ of Ted Cruz

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | April 3, 2014 | Andrew Stiles
    Liberals don’t like Ted Cruz. Many hate him. But why? Is it his conservative politics? That might have something do with it. The most plausible explanation is that liberals fear any politician who dares to be non-white, non-conformist, and non-complacent, and who challenges their 1940s Rooseveltian worldview. Whenever someone like Ted Cruz comes along, liberals cling to their outdated values, and immediately set out to neutralize this threat via a process known as “othering.” According to Yahoo! Answers: Othering is a way of defining and securing one’s own positive identity through the stigmatization of an “other.” Whatever the markers of...

    Florida Democratic Party donors affiliated with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) are coming to the aid of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.), who has come under fire in recent weeks over her efforts to quietly block new Iran sanctions measures in the House and Senate. AIPAC’s initial letter on the controversy, which circulated two weeks ago, urged Wasserman Schultz’s constituents to “respectfully ask” that she clarify her position on the congressional measures and issue a statement supporting them. However, on Jan. 24, AIPAC’s Southeastern states director Mark Kleinman issued a second letter, this one defending Wasserman Schultz....

    COMMENTARY | Yet another celebrity advertisement for President Barack Obama was unveiled earlier this week. While Marc Anthony may be an attractive and accomplished singer, he likely does not have much in common with the typical Latino voter. Anthony's impassioned plea that Obama needs another term to continue "making progress" and that he "has our backs" during the video clip republished on The Blaze neglects to mention that Anthony himself has proven he cares little about the nation's debt. According to document excerpts published by the Washington Free Beacon, Anthony is a "tax-dodger" who owed more than $3 million back...
