  • Media Hyped ‘Wrong’ Study Linking Trump Rallies To Hate Crimes, Then Ignored Second Study Debunking

    Establishment media outlets like The Washington Post hyped a now-disputed study that linked President Donald Trump’s campaign rallies to a spike in hate crimes, but they’ve yet to cover a second study that debunked the first one. The first study, which three Texas university professors conducted, said counties that hosted Trump rallies in 2016 saw a 226% spike in hate crimes compared to places that didn’t host Trump rallies. Harvard University researchers found the political scientists had gotten it wrong when they tried to replicate the study. “The study is wrong, and yet journalists ran with it anyway,” Harvard researchers Matthew Lilley...
  • Washington Post fact-checker gives Plame three Pinocchios for Libby claim

    The Washington Post "Fact Checker" column gave former CIA operative and current Democratic New Mexico congressional candidate Valerie Plame three "Pinocchios" for her claim that former George W. Bush administration official I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby leaked her identity. Plame blamed Libby for the leak in a campaign ad released Monday, but according to the Post's fact-check, there is no evidence he disclosed her role to columnist Robert Novak. Novak wrote the piece that reported that Plame, identified as a CIA operative, suggested sending her husband, Joe Wilson, to Niger to look into a report that Saddam Hussein had sought uranium...
  • Trump to hold rally before North Carolina House special election (GOP held seat since 1963)

    After over two years of campaigns and a voided November general election over allegations of ballot fraud, voters in North Carolina's 9th Congressional District will finally choose their next congressman on Tuesday. As the campaign comes to a close, President Trump is front and center in the election: Republican Dan Bishop has explicitly tied himself to the president and cast his opponent, Democrat Dan McCready, as a radical socialist. The president will also be front and center at a rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina, on Monday, where Mr. Trump will stump for Bishop. A recent TV ad by Bishop's campaign...
  • Eric Trump outs WaPo reporter seeking whistleblowers inside Trump Organization

    09/07/2019 2:52:40 PM PDT · by lowbridge · 43 replies ^ | September 6, 2019 | Ben Feuerherd
    Eric Trump touched off a heated Twitter conversation about the US media on Friday, after he outed a Washington Post reporter who’d apparently been email-blasting Trump Organization employees, looking for whistleblowers. The kerfuffle began when the president’s son somehow got a copy of an email reporter David Fahrenthold sent to a Trump employee, indicating how to reach him on encrypted apps and leak internal documents safely. “If you ever want to get in touch with me, I’d be glad to talks ‘on background’, meaning I’d never use your name in any story, or tell anyone else that we spoke,” Fahrenthold wrote...

    FULL TITLE: Trump slams ‘nasty’ Washington Post reporters; newspaper hits back, calls tweet 'unwarranted and dangerous' President Trump on Saturday started his weekend with a furious tweet aimed at two Washington Post reporters who he said shouldn’t be allowed on White House grounds after the paper published a report detailing what they described as Trump’s “lost summer.” The Post angered the White House with an article published this week called “Trump’s lost summer” which outlined what some aides described as a summer “defined by self-inflicted controversies and squandered opportunities.” Trump took aim at White House reporters Ashley Parker and Philip...
  • Biden's bloody eyeball NOT REPORTED by ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, PBS, CNN, NY Times, WaPo!

    On Thursday, we noted CNN's New Day skipped over Joe Biden's bloody eyeball during the seven-hour CNN Town Hall on climate change, despite it being an all-day Drudge Report item. But then something happened that we didn't expect: CNN never reported it. Neither did MSNBC. Neither did ABC, CBS, NBC, or PBS. Even The New York Times and The Washington Post skipped it. Fox News covered it, but not obsessively. The Bloody Eye wasn't Earth-shattering news. But some wondered if it suggested a health problem for Biden. It wasn't Hillary Clinton collapsing in the September 11 "heat." But are these...

    American Thinker ^ | 09/05/2019 | By Michael Berenhaus
    “Israel’s ominous escalation” (8/28/19) could also be called the Washington Post’s “ominous escalation” with three articles/editorials in three days about Israel’s allegedly egregious responses to Iranian aggression. Of course, the Post calls Israel’s response to weapons buildups on its borders and attempted drone attacks as Israeli “aggression.” What else does one of the smallest countries in the world have to do in its spare time than to poke a hornet’s nest of enemies that have them pretty much surrounded? The Post editorial says that “since July, Israel has quietly expanded its air campaign” against Iran. Might that have anything to...

    A gunman who opened fire inside a Walmart in Washington state and injured at least two people during carjacking attempts was fatally shot by one of two armed civilians on Sunday evening, according to police. The Thurston County coroner identified the dead suspect as Tim O. Day, 44, though police said they were still piecing together the full story of what happened at the Tumwater, Wash. Walmart. About 5 p.m. Pacific Time, authorities received a call about a possibly drunk driver heading the wrong way on a main road near a local high school, said Laura Wohl, Tumwater police public...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) The only positive thing about Hurricane Dorian is that it gives the Climate alarmists something to virtue-signal about other than the Amazon rain forest fires. – Hey, at least Hurricane Dorian is the real deal, although it is certainly not, as some alarmists claimed on Sunday, the most powerful hurricane in modern times. That title still rests with Hurricane Camille, which packed 210 mph sustained winds when it devastated Mississippi, Alabama and much of the Gulf Coast way back in 1969. Still, Dorian’s a big deal, one that is pounding the Bahamas...

    Washington Post ^ | 11/22/2016 | Bjorn Lomborg
    The election of Donald Trump and Republican majorities in both houses have terrified environmentalists and climate campaigners, who have declared that the next four years will be a “disaster.” Fear is understandable. We have much to learn about the new administration’s plans. But perhaps surprisingly, what little we know offers some cause for hope. It should not need to be restated in 2016 that climate change is real and mostly man-made. It is hard to know whether Trump will acknowledge this. He has called global warming a “hoax” perpetrated by the Chinese, but stated that this was a joke; he...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden, the current frontrunner in the 2020 Democratic race, has been hit by a new wave of gaffes and errors over just a few days – something that President Trump and his reelection campaign are increasingly pointing to as a problem for the potential White House rival. Biden was hit by a Washington Post report this week that found that a moving military story – which the former senator called “God’s truth” – was not true. The story was an emotional account of Biden's decision to travel to Afghanistan, despite concerns about visiting a war-torn area,...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden is unapologetic for fabricating an emotional story about the war in Afghanistan, claiming its “essence” is true. Biden, who is under fire after The Washington Post exposed a story he told about pinning a medal on a reluctant Navy officer as inaccurate, defended his conduct while campaigning in South Carolina on Thursday. “I don’t understand what they’re talking about, but the central point is it was absolutely accurate what I said,” Biden told The Post and Courier when asked about the controversy. “He refused the medal. I put it on him, he said, ‘Don’t do...

    On Sunday, Israel's Ministry of Strategic Affairs and Public Diplomacy made public a lengthy new document entitled, "Terrorists in Suits: The Ties Between NGOs Promoting BDS and Terrorist Organizations." Israel released the report to demonstrate "how terrorists came to hold key positions in NGOs promoting the Boycott Divestment and Sanction (BDS) campaign against the State of Israel; and how, through these NGOs, they exploit Western governmental funding, philanthropic foundations, financial platforms and civil society to advance their goal of dismantling the State of Israel." NGOs, or non-governmental organizations, are hotly contested in the Israeli public discourse. Anti-Israel NGOs are so...

    During a campaign stop in New Hampshire on Friday, Joe Biden fabricated an emotional story about pinning a medal on a reluctant Navy captain in honor of his daring attempt to rescue a downed comrade in Afghanistan. Addressing a crowd of over 400, Biden recalled how the captain rappelled down a 60-foot ravine under fire to rescue the body of a fallen American soldier only to resist when then-vice president Biden tried to pin a Silver Star on his chest to honor his efforts. “He said, ‘Sir, I don’t want the damn thing!’ ” Biden shouted, recounting the apocryphal event....

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Last week, after President Donald Trump had said that, because his three predecessors in the job failed ot deal with China’s unfair trade practices, and therefore he was the “chosen one” to do so, the Democrat-toadying news media went berserk. “Trump thinks he’s the Chosen one!” they wailed, “Trump compares himself to a messiah!” the headlines roared. On and on and on it went, even though the President was very clearly using the term “chosen one” in a highly ironic and humorous manner. But of course, when it comes to covering the...

    The Democrats and the liberal media just cannot let Russia go. It also shows that President Donald Trump lives rent-free in their heads and that it drives them totally insane. Another thing that’s also quite clear, and it’s been this way for quite some time, is that MSNBC is just there to give progressives their daily fix. They’re meant to keep liberals from jumping off cliffs. That’s it. it’s the only way to explain host Lawrence O’Donnell’s atrocious judgment in going to air with a story that only had one source and so shoddy that he was forced to apologize (sort...

    In the shameless shambles that is Morning Joe, they can report on Ilhan Omar -- but only the parts where they think Republicans look ridiculous. On today's show, Joe Scarborough, with an assist from Eugene Scott of the Washington Post, whom the paper's official bio describes as a "reporter covering identity politics," criticized the Alabama Republican Party for adopting a resolution calling for the expulsion of Omar from Congress. Scarborough approvingly cited Omar's tweet in response to the resolution, in which she mockingly noted the 2016 Senate nomination of Roy Moore. Scarborough also quoted Scott to the effect that the...

    President Trump is so eager to complete hundreds of miles of border fence ahead of the 2020 presidential election that he has directed aides to fast-track billions of dollars’ worth of construction contracts, aggressively seize private land and disregard environmental rules, according to current and former officials involved with the project. He also has told worried subordinates that he will pardon them of any potential wrongdoing should they have to break laws to get the barriers built quickly, those officials said. Trump has repeatedly promised to complete 500 miles of fencing by the time voters go to the polls in...

    So much for closing ranks. Perhaps Arthur Sulzberger thought that his newspaper’s rant about conservatives doing to his reporters what they do to conservatives would generate some sympathy from colleagues in the media. Instead, media critics at the Washington Post and Politico delivered the same message to the New York Times’ publisher — stop whining.The Post’s Erik Wemple wrote that Sulzberger can’t have it both ways. These are public statements of the same kind — and on the same platform — as the media likes to resurface when it suits their purposes. Despite the breathless description used by the...

    Sunday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin called for the shunning and shaming of the supporters of President Donald Trump, which she argued was part of a plan to “burn down” the GOP and start from new. “It’s not only that Trump has to lose, but that all his enablers have to lose,” she said. “We have to collectively, in essence, burn down the Republican Party. We have to level them because if there are survivors — if there are people who weather this storm, they will do it again. They will take this as confirmation that,...
