  • Allen West: Tired of the Incessant, Manufactured, Media-Enhanced ‘Moral’ Outrage

    A couple of weeks back, I had the utter pleasure of diving in Cayman Islands with former Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines who had suffered amputations and spinal cord injuries. I made a promise to myself, which I kept, to not turn on the TV while I was there, nor did I turn on a computer. However, I could not help but see the news updates off my iPhone. Of course, upon returning to the states last weekend, I was inundated with all the hysteria over the “separations” of, what I have read, between 1,800-2,300 illegal immigrant children. This has...

    A reporter at a Massachusetts-based newspaper resigned Friday after falsely claiming in a tweet Thursday that the man who killed five employees at the Capital Gazzete newspaper left a “Make America Great Again” hat at the crime scene. “Shooter who killed 4 people at Annapolis newspaper dropped his #MAGA hat on newsroom floor before opening fire,” Conor Berry, a reporter at The Republican in Springfield, Mass., wrote in a now-deleted tweet. Berry, who covered politics and crime for The Republican, apologized for the “stupid” and “regrettable” tweet Friday, adding that it made his 21-year career as a journalist come to...
  • Fake news scores another one: Crying migrant child in photo never separated from her mother

    We already know it was going on with the manufactured crisis over child separations of people caught breaking U.S. law by entering the country illegally. The policies were Democrat policies, yet Democrats and Jeb Bush-style #NeverTrumps were decrying it as a product of President Trump's heartlessness, separating parents from children entering illegally as families, in order to keep the children out of their parents' jail. Yet they were President Obama's and President Bush's and President Clinton's policies, dating to 1997. The press pounded the drumbeat nonstop for days that President Trump was heartless and evil - the same way they...
  • Fact-checked: Viral photo of boy in enclosure taken at protest, not in detention facility

    A viral photo that appeared to depict a child detained at the border over his immigration status was actually taken at a protest, according to fact-checkers. The image was shared by social media users like journalist and filmmaker Jose Antonio Vargas, who said in the caption: "This is what happens when a government believes people are 'illegal.' Kids in cages." However, fact-checking websites Snopes and PolitiFact found other pictures of the boy wearing the same clothes at a demonstration on June 10 organized by the Brown Berets de Cemanahuac's Texas chapter in Dallas. Leroy Pena, who took the image, told...

    We the media have “fact-checked” President Trump like we have fact-checked no other human being on the planet—and he’s certainly given us plenty to write about. That’s probably why it’s so easy to find lists enumerating and examining his mistakes, missteps and “lies.” But as self-appointed arbiters of truth, we’ve largely excused our own unprecedented string of fact-challenged reporting. The truth is, formerly well-respected, top news organizations are making repeat, unforced errors in numbers that were unheard of just a couple of years ago. Our repeat mistakes involve declaring that Trump’s claims are “lies” when they are matters of opinion,...

    The New York Times editorial board claims “at least 700 mass shootings” occurred over the least two years and 96 people are killed by firearms every day. The column was written to correspond with the second anniversary of the June 12, 2016, shooting at the gun-free Orlando Pulse nightclub. The gunman in that attack had a “statewide firearms license” enabling him to serve as an armed security guard and he passed a background check for the handgun and rifle he carried on the night of his attack. Moreover, he passed a waiting a period for the handgun.

    SINGAPORE (Reuters) - In their first moments of meeting each other, U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un both sought to project a sense of command but displayed some anxiety at the start of their high-stakes summit in Singapore. Body language experts said that in the 13 seconds or so the U.S. president held on to the hand of Kim for the first time, he projected his usual dominance by reaching out first, and patting the North Korean leader's shoulder. Not to be outdone, Kim firmly pumped Trump's hand, looking him straight in the eye for...

    Journalism got a lot smaller last week. The media lost two of their biggest names – author and journalist Tom Wolfe and Interview Magazine. Wolfe, who wrote “The Right Stuff,” spent decades making people appear larger than life. Interview, founded by pop culture icon Andy Warhol, used its larger-than-normal format to make its subjects grow in stature. The industry is diminished, left with its war against President Trump as journalists battle over whether an informant sent to spy on the Trump campaign is actually a “spy.” That is part of their larger anti-Trump crusade, but it’s also tied to how...

      Liberal media darling and porn star Stormy Daniels admitted in a tweet this past week that she is not paying for her attorney fees. If she’s not, then who is? The porn star who the MSM will not stop talking about due to her statements that she slept with President Trump a dozen years ago admitted this past week that she is not paying for her attorney fees. Daniels reportedly signed a document stating she did not have sex with citizen Donald Trump a dozen years ago.  Then Daniels came out and said that she did have sex...

    NEW YORK — Eight months before the company that owns the National Enquirer paid $150,000 to a former Playboy Playmate who claimed she’d had an affair with Donald Trump, the tabloid’s parent made a $30,000 payment to a less famous individual: a former doorman at one of the real estate mogul’s New York City buildings. As it did with the ex-Playmate, the Enquirer signed the ex-doorman to a contract that effectively prevented him from going public with a juicy tale that might hurt Trump’s campaign for president. The payout to the former Playmate, Karen McDougal, stayed a secret until the...

    If this is the kind of lawyer Harvard is turning out, it could be time to close up shop in Cambridge . . . CNN legal analyst and Harvard Law alum Areva Martin argued this morning that Stormy Daniels is not bound by her agreement with Michael Cohen not to discuss her alleged affair with Donald Trump, because Trump, per his statement of yesterday, was unaware that Cohen had paid Stormy $130,000. Martin’s reasoning was so transparently flawed that co-host Alisyn Camerota had no trouble demolishing it: Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Democrats across the country were getting a collective thrill up their leg about the coming “blue wave” that was about to break over Texas. Some early-voting numbers had Dems all excited. And then the election happened. And it’s true that a political party set a Texas record yesterday for the number of voters going to the polls in a primary. Just one teensy little problem for Texas Dems: it was the Republican party. Democrats turned out in solid-but-not-record-breaking numbers. Overall, Republicans swamped Dem turnout by about half-a-million votes. Republican votes cast beat Dem votes by a ratio of 60/40. On...

    Andrew Pollack, father of a Meadow Pollack, a student killed in the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School challenged the prevalent media narrative on MSNBC Monday. MSNBC’s Chris Jansing asked, “You’ve said, also, that gun control laws are not achievable right now. You’ve been advocating, correct me if I’m wrong, a school safety first program. What makes sense to you from where you sit?” “Correct,” he said. “Well, part of the problem is the media, like before you got on you started talking about the AR bill and it takes away from the focus of what’s important to...

    BANGKOK — A Belarusian escort with close ties to a powerful Russian oligarch said from behind bars in Bangkok on Monday that she had more than 16 hours of audio recordings that could help shed light on Russian meddling in United States elections. The escort, Anastasia Vashukevich, said she would hand over the recordings if the United States granted her asylum. She faces criminal charges and deportation to Belarus after coming under suspicion of working in Thailand without a visa at a sex-training seminar in the city of Pattaya. Ms. Vashukevich, who described herself as close to the Russian aluminum...

    Two young reporters have schooled Brian Stelter on the role of journalists . . . On his Reliable Sources CNN show this morning, Stelter tried and failed to get his two young reporter guests to join him in freaking out about President Trump. Stelter began by saying that when he reads stories in the news, “I get worried about the country; I get worried about the President.” He then asked 25-year old Olivia Nuzzi of New York magazine, “do you get worried, Olivia?” Nuzzi wouldn’t bite: “No, that’s not my concern. My concern is to figure out what is going...
  • Model, first lady: Melania Trump conspicuously absent from magazine covers

    NBC News ^ | 2/21/2018 | Claire Atkinson
    From British GQ to US Vogue, Melania Trump appeared on many magazine covers as a professional model. But since she became first lady, few editors have dared to put her on the front page. Her absence is notable, particularly as the wife of a president who rarely spends a day out of the media spotlight. While cable news outlets have dedicated near wall-to-wall attention to the president and his administration, it's a different story in the magazine world. There's a clear reluctance among editors to put themselves in the cross-hairs of the culture wars. Mostly New York-based editors may fear...

    Trump supporters share more fake news on social media than any other political group, according to a new study from Oxford University. Researchers studied more than 13,000 Twitter users and 47,000 Facebook pages in the days leading up to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union Address to determine which social media users spread the most “junk” news. They discovered that Trump supporters on Twitter shared more unreliable news than all other groups combined. On Facebook, extreme conservatives share more junk news than all other audiences put together. The researchers defined “junk news” as “misleading, deceptive or incorrect information purporting...

    Jeff Bezos’ blog, also known as the Washington Post, one of America’s most important newspapers which back in in the day was a bastion of investigative journalism, rewrote its State Of The Union headline following a massive backlash on social media from progressives/liberals or whatever you want to call the far left/social justice mob. The initial headline was tweeted by WaPo approximately one hour before the POTUS delivered his SOTU speech. The front-page headline reads: “|A call for bipartisanship”: https://twitter.com/washingtonpost/status/958554913486884864

    She had to eat her words. CNN guest commentator Hilary Rosen is on the hot seat after she publicly and baselessly panned a Georgetown University sports fan as anti-Semitic — because he was wearing a bacon suit during his school’s recent basketball game against Syracuse University. It turns out the fan’s name is Michael Bakan, and he regularly wears the get-up just because his last name is pronounced like the non-Kosher breakfast staple.
