  • DNC Silence on Disturbing Keith Ellison Charges Has Not Gone Unnoticed

    The Democratic National Committee has yet to speak up about the disturbing domestic abuse charges against its deputy chair Keith Ellison, which have come to light just a few days before the Minnesota primary for attorney general. The silence has not gone unnoticed. First of all, former White House Press Secretaries Ari Fleischer and Sean Spicer want to know what's up with the double standard. Where is the media on this? Is it because Ellison, a Minnesota representative who has served in Congress for six terms now, is a Democrat?
  • Opinion: Calling The Press The Enemy Of The People Is A Menacing Move (NPR)

    NPR ^ | Aug 4 '18 | Scott Simon
    "Enemy of the people" is an incendiary phrase. It's been uttered by some of history's most vicious thugs — Robespierre, Goebbels, Lenin, Stalin, Mao — to vilify their opponents ... who were often murdered. President Trump must know that history by now when he calls the press "the enemy of the people." As he must also know the anti-Semitic and racist history of the America First slogan, by which the president describes many of his policies. But Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, pointedly declined the chance this week to say, as Ivanka Tump did, "I do not feel...

    The National Sentinel ^ | 8/13/18 | USA Features
    Epic Fail: On Thursday one hundred newspapers around the country are set to simultaneously run editorials bashing POTUS Donald Trump for his characterizing them as “fake news” and ‘enemies of the people’ — which is pretty much what they all do everyday unofficially. Because practically no one in Trump’s America trusts them anyway, the ‘mainstream’ media’s equivalent of another anti-Trump temper tantrum isn’t going to affect POTUS’ approval rating one iota — unless, of course, it will drive it up. The papers are going to whine and complain that POTUS Trump is ‘harming the First Amendment’ through alleged attempts to...

    I'm confused. How is this different than every other day in the media? "The dirty war on the free press must end." That's the idea behind an unusual editorial-writing initiative that has enlisted scores of newspapers across America. Unusual? That's been the same theme that the media has been putting out for a few weeks. The Boston Globe has been contacting newspaper editorial boards and proposing a "coordinated response" to President Trump's escalating "enemy of the people" rhetoric. There's been a coordinated campaign against Republicans by the media for around 90 years. "We propose to publish an editorial on August...

    President Donald Trump taunted the press on Saturday while meeting with bikers who supported his presidency. Nearly 200 Bikers for Trump arrived on their motorcycles to meet the president during his stay at his Bedminster club in New Jersey. The White House press corps was allowed to take pictures of the event. Trump shook hands and signed autographs for the group of supporters as reporters shouted questions. “Does everybody like the press?” Trump asked. “Nooo!” booed the bikers “Do you think the media is fair?” he asked again. “Nooo!” the bikers booed again. “Tell the truth!” “I better not go...

    President Trump’s repeated cries of “fake news” and attacks on journalists as “enemies of the American people” have resonated with his base, with 43 percent of Republicans saying he “should have the authority to close news outlets engaged in bad behavior.” The results — suggesting that a plurality of Republicans would have no problem trashing the First Amendment — came from a stunning new poll conducted by Ipsos and reported Tuesday by the Daily Beast. The survey also showed that just 36 percent of GOP voters disagreed with that statement. When asked if Trump should close down specific news organizations,...

    LOS ANGELES — Republicans hoping to hold on to their majorities in state legislative chambers across the country are nervously eying President Trump’s anemic approval rating, concerned that a wave of voter anger could undo years of gains. In interviews at the National Conference of State Legislators' annual meetings last week, Republican leaders from purple and red states said they were worried that their members — most of whom are little-known even inside their own districts — are most vulnerable to an electoral atmosphere that even slightly benefits Democrats. “There is more Democratic enthusiasm than I have seen in the...

    Waking up 18 months ago to discover Donald Trump had been elected US president filled me with despair. What on earth had happened to politics? How could a reality TV star with no experience of government – and multiple character flaws to boot – have been chosen by American voters to be their leader? My 13-year-old daughter was also deeply troubled. “How could America vote for a man who said these things about women?” I didn’t know what to say. She went off to school. And I went off to a dance studio to practise a Gangnam Style salsa for...

    For once, the most memorable thing about one of the president's rallies was not his baldfaced lies nor his attacks on reality. Rather, President Donald Trump's Tampa rally will be remembered for the reporting of CNN's Jim Acosta. He revealed more accurately than most what the Trump base, or at least part of it, looks and sounds like and what Trump must do to hold its attention. He tweeted: "Just a sample of the sad scene we faced at the Trump rally in Tampa. I'm very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will...

    “Now, the press is absolutely a vital part of any democracy. Their rights are guaranteed in our Constitution, but so are the rights of freedom of speech, and the president calling them out for the lies that they tell,” Hannity explained. “And the American people also have a right and when they know a network is feeding them lies, propaganda, misinformation, every single second of every single minute of every single day, week after week, month after month, year after year, they are right to call them out." “But saying that you’re a liar and calling out fake news is...

    CNN correspondent Jim Acosta discusses his question to press secretary Sarah Sanders, when she refused to say that the press was not the enemy of the American people. Acosta was so distressed that he walked out of Thursday's press briefing. Acosta came up with an idea to combat the 'CNN sucks' chants of Trump supporters: "I think maybe we should make some bumper stickers. Make some buttons, you know maybe we should go out on Pennsylvania Avenue like these folks who chant CNN sucks and fake news, maybe we should go out, all journalists should go out on Pennsylvania Avenue...

Acosta actually suggests the Press Corps should start chanting, “We are not the enemy of the People.” Yet we all know that CNN is doing everything it can to destroy the Trump Administration – to bring down a duly-elected President of the United States. Acosta is one of many who do nothing but attack the President and everyone who works for him. . . .

    If the media can dish it out, they should be prepared to take it. Tuesday night, at a Trump rally in Tampa, Fla., Jim Acosta complained about the crowd booing him, even making it part of his on-air bit with Wolf Blitzer. “You can hear there is a chorus of boos and other chants from this Trump crowd here — saying things like ‘CNN sucks,’ ‘go home’ and ‘fake news,’ ” Acosta complained. Then, in what has become a ritual with Acosta, he signed off with some virtue-signalling and then gave a nod to his own, insurmountable dedication to journalism in...

    Well, that escalated quickly. The rise of “democratic socialism” has been one of the key developments in the Democratic Party in recent years, first with the popularity of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and more recently Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s primary win over party mainstay Rep. Joe Crowley in New York. One of the ways the movement is presented is with the claim that this is not your grandfather’s socialism -- or the socialism of the former Soviet Union, Venezuela or other failed states. It’s more “Scandinavian health care” than overthrowing the bourgeoisie. But now a democratic socialist writer is leveling with voters,...

    Today, we heard from CNN, who decried Trump and his supporters for insulting and heckling them ... and repeated the oft-inferred comparison to fascism and Nazism. Iexpected these headlines: CBS: “Trump Criticized For Resisting Our Narrative; Experts Shocked” NYT: “Evil Racist Ignorant Fascist Bastard Trump Accuses Media of Bias” NBC: “Without Any Provocation, Trump Wildly Lashes Out At News Groups” CNN: “DEATH TO ANYONE WHO ACCUSES US OF INCITING VIOLENCE!” MSNBC: “What A Nazi Trump Is. F&$^ Him. What A C*$&*$&#R.” I didn't make it a daily thing, that would be forced. I'll make a new episode when warranted.
