    The House Intelligence Committee next week plans to interview John Podesta as part of its investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign, according to a new report. CNN reported Thursday night that the meeting with Podesta, Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman last year, will occur in private.

    Democracy dies in darkness. Sometimes it helps to shed a little light on the hateful leftist echo chamber. That's what Malcolm Harris has done... ..."If the shooter has a serious health condition then is taking potshots at the GOP house leadership considered self defense?" Harris, a regular at the New Republic tweeted. Another tweet said, "Steve Scalise is stable, but a lot of Americans die from hospital errors so keep crossing your fingers." Scalise had been shot by a Bernie campaign volunteer and Maddow fan while practicing for a charity baseball game. Harris' work has appeared at the Washington Post,...

    After far-left progressive and avid Bernie Sander’s supporter James Hodgkinson opened fire on Republicans preparing for a baseball game this morning, managing to wound House Majority Whip Steve Scalise who remains in critical condition, some of the most radical leftists in the media couldn’t contain their satisfaction at Republicans being targeted in an act of violence. Malcolm Harris, who writes for far-left publication The Washington Post, was one such leftist who expressed his satisfaction at today’s shooting. Malcolm most recently published an article for The Washington Post on June 9th titled “Why do millennials keep leaking government secret?”This morning, Malcolm...

    Conservative website The Daily Caller has published a thorough analysis of the Washington Post's report accusing Jared Kushner of requesting a secret, secure line of communication with Russia so the incoming Trump administration could talk to the Russians without any interference from the Obama administration. It's worth your time to read it completely, but here are some key quotes: "WaPo also claimed American intelligence agencies discovered the ploy through an intercepted open phone call by Kislyak to Moscow. Observers have noted that Kislyak, a seasoned spy, made the phone call on an “open line,” and therefore knew it was likely...
  • What Is Washington Post Hiding About Its Jared Kushner Story? [Refuses to share Anonymous Letter]

    05/30/2017 9:20:35 PM PDT · by NoLibZone · 44 replies ^ | May 30,2017 | Richard Pollock
    The Washington Post editors refuse to publicly release the smoking gun “anonymous letter” that serves as the foundation of their sensational charge that White House advisor Jared Kushner sought a secret, back-channel to Russian officials. The “anonymous letter” was part of a front-page article claiming the president’s son-in-law sought to set up a private communications channel to Russian officials during a discussion with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. The piece was published Sunday and received high profile coverage throughout the long Memorial Day weekend. “The Post was first alerted in mid-December to the meeting by an anonymous letter, which said, among...

    Today, the Washington Post dedicated an entire section of the paper to airing Palestinian grievances and talking points. The section is called “Occupied: Year 50.” One of the stories is about a Palestinian cancer patient whose children can’t get into Israel to visit her. Another shills for a Palestinian real estate developer who is building a planned city on the West Bank but fears the Israel Defense Force will thwart this noble ambition. The story I want to focus on is about the difficulties a Palestinian construction worker faces on a daily basis as he must pass through an Israeli...
  • Reporters Fall for Fake Document of Trump Making Absurd Demands in Israel

    Washington Free Bacon ^ | 05/22/2017 | Alex Griswold
    Reporters on Monday fell for a fake "White House" document that supposedly showed President Donald Trump making unusual demands of his Israeli hosts during his trip abroad. The Twitter account Rogue White House Senior Advisor on Friday shared what it claimed was Trump's demands ahead of a trip to Israel, including roughly a metric ton of sugary and non-kosher junk food. .. Some elements of the purported demands were obvious jokes. The demand that microwaves remain unplugged was a mocking reference to White House advisor Kellyanne Conway's bizarre comment that the appliance could be used for spying, and the request...

    Washington Times ^ | May 17, 2017
    Anonymous sources may not always be reliable, but they’re always convenient. More than that, anonymous accounts are usually made of putty, soft and easily shaped. Not only that, an anonymous source never claims he was misquoted. He never demands a correction or a retraction. The Washington Post, which deals in anonymous sources for many of its blockbuster disclosures, is particularly skilled at working with anonymous sources, and gets more out of them than almost any other newspaper. Bob Woodward, of Woodward and Bernstein fame, once based a blockbuster on an interview with a man in a deep coma, and at...

    Every time I see an interview discussing 2016 surveillance of the Trump Campaign and candidate Donald Trump I keep going back to that November 17th, 2016, Trump Tower visit by NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers. No-one in the Obama chain-of-command knew Director Rogers was going to meet with President-Elect Trump; Rogers did it entirely on his own impetus, and James Clapper was furious in the aftermath.Additionally, Admiral Mike Rogers is still running the NSA. President Trump has made no effort to replace him. “Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command. He...

    "Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room."It is a good bet that Washington Post reporters Carol Morello and Greg Miller probably had the movie Dr. Strangelove on their minds either conciously or unconciously when they wrote their May 10 story/fantasy about the possibility that a Russian photographer could have planted a surveillance device in the White House Oval Office during a meeting there between President Donald Trump and Russian diplomats. Before we get to the reporters summoning up their inner General Buck Turgidson, let us revisit the Dr. Strangelove War Room scene in which Russian ambassador Alexi de Sadesky attempts...

    RUSH: CNN and the Washington Post with fake news. There’s a news story that Comey requested additional money for his investigation just days before he was fired. The Department of Justice has just denied it 100%. There was no request for additional money before he was fired. CNN and the Washington Post get this fake news trail going that Comey was getting close, man! He needed some more money. He needed some more money to nail Trump! And that’s when Trump moved in and said, “Screw you! You’re not getting the money. You’re not getting me.” The DOJ says it’s...

    The corrupt Washington Post ^ | March 31 | Eric Liu
    “American history,” he writes, “is the story of white fear, of the constant violent impulses it produces and the management and ordering of those impulses. White fear keeps the citizens of the Nation wary of the Colony, and fuels their desire to keep it separate.” He doesn’t develop this notion systematically but that he names it at all, and so bluntly, is significant. Indeed, the long-term value of this book probably will lie less in Hayes’s survey of “the new Jim Crow” system that Michelle Alexander has described than in his nascent effort to confront and counteract the underlying force...

    A veteran State Department reporter is throwing cold water on a bombshell report that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson instructed some staff members “not to speak to him directly — or even make eye contact.” The Washington Post’s Thursday story portrays Tillerson as a reclusive figure who is "isolated, walled off from the State Department’s corps of bureaucrats in Washington and around the world." The piece says Tillerson has instructed his staff to warn "career diplomats" not to speak or make eye contact with him. "Most of Tillerson's interactions are with an insular circle of political aides who are new...

    Only to have Sean Spicer bring forth the documents that show the whole thing was totally false It’s not exactly breaking news that the Washington Post lies. We’ve been down this road before. And you should always be very skeptical when any media outlet claims that it “has learned” something without telling you how they supposedly learned it. But you can’t learn something that ain’t so, however much you may want to pretend otherwise. So if you were skeptical when you read this, stick a gold star on your forehead:

    If photographer Jamie Lorriman was any kind of professional, he would have known what kind of emotion the picture would evoke. Is he some kind of social justice warrior who hoped he would've triggered an Islamophobic response at the expense of a passerby? This is why responsible media-types have editing functions available like "blur" so the identities of people, even if they are on a public street, for this precise reason are protected. Blaming the reaction on a "far right" bigoted response, it could also be argued, is exactly what Lorriman wanted.

  • Washington Post Flips Out over Conservatives with WH Access:‘What’s a Legitimate News Outlet?’

    03/12/2017 3:12:32 PM PDT · by davikkm · 35 replies
    Paul Farhip, a straight-down-the-middle,, objective reporter for the extremely non-partisan, ideologically unbridled Washington Post, frets about “partisan” news outlet The Daily Signal being part of the White House press corps — quite literally stating that conservatives gaining White House access evinces a slippery slope where “extremist or racist organizations” could do the same. From the Washington Post: In an age of partisan media, the lines between “partisan” and “media” can sometimes blur. Case in point: The pool reporter covering Vice President Pence on Thursday — that is, the reporter who supplied details about Pence’s daily activities as proxy for the...

    The Young Turks ^ | 3/2/2017 | Michael Tracey
    The basic formula for every breaking Trump/Russia story is essentially as follows: 1. The New York Times or Washington Post releases an article that at first blush appears extremely damning. 2. Anti-Trump pundits and Democrats react reflexively to the news, express shrieking outrage, and proclaim that this finally proves untoward collusion between Trump and Russia — a smoking gun, at last. 3. Aggrieved former Clinton apparatchiks *connect the dots* in a manner eerily reminiscent of right-wing Glenn Beck-esque prognostication circa 2009. 4. Self-proclaimed legal experts rashly opine as to whether the new revelation entails some kind of criminally actionable offense. (Recall the...
