CNN is in a mess because it chose to mention a report with unbelievable (and unverifiable) tales of sex, depravity and espionage concerning Donald Trump and the Russians.
One can debate whether or not CNN actually reported the vile accusations found in a report or just reported that the report was out there but the fact remains it was something that no reputable (if we still have those) news source could verify so many left it alone.
CNN wanted to mention it and while it might not have actually reported “fake news” as Buzzfeed did when it released the entire report the fact remains that CNN mentioned it in hopes that people would look for it. CNN hoped to give itself plausible deniability by claiming it never released the details of the report while enjoying the reality that its reporting tacitly encouraged people to look for the information.
Donald Trump was having NONE of it and he made his dissatisfaction known to CNN when he refused to allow a reporter to ask a question and told him that he (his network) was “fake news.”
CNN is doing the song and dance today trying to convince anyone who will listen that the network never released the information and only mentioned the report. It is asking that folks do not judge it by what Buzzfeed did.
CNN wants people to think of it as an honest news network and not to give in to accusations that it peddles “fake news.”
Isn’t it ironic that CNN is fighting back at allegations that it claims are not true and are unfair when the accusations are that CNN reported something untrue and that was not fair?
I find this and Trump’s treatment of the network delicious. I am glad he lashed out so that he could set the pace from the start. He showed the media that he will not take kindly to these kinds of things and that he has no issue belittling anyone involved. He has no issue with punishing a network by removing its White House press credentials if that network does something that calls into question journalistic integrity.
I hope Trump removes their credentials and if they are ever allowed back (or if he can’t pull them for some reason) he assigns them a seat in the back and never calls on them for a question. They need to be shunned and they need to suffer so the other networks can see what happens when they are dishonest.
They have played fast and loose for years. They have been openly hostile to Republican presidents while treating Democrats like they walk on water. Hell, they still fawn over Obama and they gave Clinton a pass on his sexual escapades and treated his walking dead wife like she was a queen.
I am all for a free press that is hard on politicians when that press is busy protecting the American public as they are supposed to do. I have no sympathy for a press that is part of the problem and that has become nothing more than the media wing of the Democrat Party.
The attempt to smear PE Trump backfired in an awful way and now CNN is trying to convince people it is not fake news and these things being said about them are not true.
It looks like they are experiencing what they tried to do to Trump.
They are getting a taste of their own medicine and I think they are finding it slightly bitter.
Never surrender, never submit.
Better yet, go ahead and hold your breath…..
Georgetown professor Michael Eric Dyson thinks white people should open IRAs (Individual Reparations Accounts) to pay black folks for slavery. Yes, you read that right. This dim bulb wants the whites in this nation to open accounts and put money in them (and probably contribute regularly) in order to pay black people, none of whom were EVER slaves, for slavery.
The guy wants people to pay a black guy who does work for you (if you are white) double what you would normally pay. His example is the black guy who cuts your grass.
What this liberal twit is saying is that, in typical liberal fashion, he wants YOUR money. He is inventing some BS reason to allow black folks to dip their hands into the pockets of white people to take their money. You know, white folks who had nothing to do with the practice must pay, according to libs, black folks who were never held as slaves, reparations.
This professor is among the race baiters in society who continue to hold black folks down by preaching to them how unfair life is for blacks because of whites. BTW, Barack Obama is proof of the racism that exists when a person from a minority that represents 15% of the population can be elected to the highest office in the land.
Let us not forget that the black liberals perpetuate their plight by holding folks down in the name of ideology. They are liberals and by definition MUST be victims. Look at how they treat black conservatives. Those successful people are called Uncle Toms and sell outs because they actually achieved success and have refused to be victims.
It is easier to be a victim and take handouts or forcefully take the property of other people than it is to work hard for it.
This professor wants white folks to believe they are only successful because they rode to success on the backs of slaves.
I want to make this clear. I have been working since I was 10 years old. Everything that I have in life is due to hard work and the grace of God. I did not take it from anyone else or have it given to me after it was taken by government.
If this professor would teach young much filled heads to do the same thing they would do much better.
You are only a victim if you allow yourself to be one.
And I cut my own damn grass…
Never surrender, never submit.
I listened yesterday as Dianne Feinstein, a very old senator from California (as in should be out to pasture), questioned Senator Sessions as he goes through the process to be the next Attorney General. She was a typical liberal and asked about things that dealt with abortion and gay marriage. She was concerned that Sessions still considers Roe v Wade to be the worst decision the SCOTUS ever made (I agree with him that it was unconstitutional and should have been a 10th Amendment issue). Sessions was candid and said it was the law and he would enforce it but that he personally thinks it was wrongly decided. I think the same is true about gay marriage. Marriage of any kind is not in the Constitution so it is not the business of the federal government.
It was obvious to me that Feinstein is biased and does not want Sessions to be confirmed. That is obvious with regard to most Democrats who questioned him. They have decided to run a racist allegation smear and are sticking to it despite mounds of evidence to the contrary. It is how they do things in DC. It matters not that these folks work together and that they have good relationships. As soon as politics are in play they abuse each other with lies. It is a wink, wink situation where they say, nothing personal dude but I have to play up to the base so I look good.
It started with Feinstein’s opening remarks where she expressed concerns (allegedly told to her by victim groups) about Sessions’ ability to be the AG for all people and to enforce all the laws, particularly the ones with which he disagrees.
I have no doubt Sessions will do just that BUT, I want to know where Feinstein was with regard to former AG Eric Holder. Feinstein supported Holder even though he has a history as a radical. While in office Holder refused to defend laws with which he disagreed. He refused to defend the Defense of Marriage Act stating gay rights were the last civil rights. Did Feinstein have a chat with Holder about supporting the law EVEN THOSE WITH WHICH HE DISAGREES?
In 2011, the attorney general said he won’t defend Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) which rules that federal interpretation of “marriage” applies only to heterosexual couples. Last year, Holder told ABC News, “From my perspective, [gay marriage] is really the latest civil-rights issue.” So when six state attorneys general said they would not defend laws that ban gay marriage, Holder did not step in. Instead, Holder said they didn’t have to defend the laws if they believed they were unconstitutional. ABC News
Is it OK for AG Sessions to ignore laws or state AGs who ignore laws that they consider unconstitutional? If a state AG decided that Obamacare or gay marriage or abortion were unconstitutional and refused to enforce or defend the laws guiding them would Feinstein be OK with that? She certainly had no issue with Holder…
Feinstein also expressed concern that Sessions had a history of racism (not proven and contrary to evidence) and she was concerned that people of color (and other protected minority groups) would not get a fair shake under an AG Sessions. Where was Feinstein when Holder refused to prosecute the Black Panthers who were recorded intimidating white voters? She was nowhere to be found when Holder claimed that the focus on the Black Panther Case demeans “my people.”
Did Feinstein call Holder in to let him know it was racist to take that attitude and that all Americans are his people?
It is obvious that the Democrats have a hard on for Sessions (actually they hate Trump and want to wound him this way). That is all well and good BUT a real leader, a principled person in the Senate, would evaluate a person based on skill and career. The reality is the Democrats (hell, most politicians) are immoral and cowardly. They do not care what is good for the country or what is right. They care about how they can get and keep power and how they can control each and every one of us.
Feinstein is a moron and a political hack. She is out for blood because her besty Hillary Clinton got her rear end whipped by Donald Trump.
I want adults with ethical principles and of good moral character to sit in the senate and that is why Feinstein should be put out to pasture.
She is a disgrace to herself and the body in which she sits.
As an aside, Al Franken is as partisan and cowardly as Feinstein.
Democrats ram stuff through when they are in charge and expect their nominees to be accepted. When they are the minority they expect bipartisanship and the ability to oppose nominees because they know what is best for America.
They are a ruthless bunch and must be handled with brutal force. Get them down and keep them down.
Never surrender, never submit.
The Lame Stream Media and the Democrat stenographers in the media, those from the media wing of the Democrat Party have had such sweet and sugary things to say about B. Hussein Obama for the last eight years (actually 12 if you go back to his convention appearance) so much so that there is a diabetes epidemic among that crowd. There is a shortage of insulin because of the sugary overload of words stated about Obama by the media puppets who have the amazing ability to speak passionately about their messiah while their mouth is full of his….
To this group of sycophants nothing Obama did was wrong. If he farted it smelled like lilacs and should be bottled for future use. If he misspoke it was overlooked as a passionate man who is eloquent with words and must be listened to.
This link has a large number of direct quotes about B. Hussein by his sock puppet media and reading them is sure to make you wonder if objective journalism has become extinct.
After you read those quotes you will need a dose of insulin to keep from going into sugar shock but have no fear.
You see, the media hate Donald Trump. The very people who talked about Obama as if he would walk on water and not get his feet wet will bash Trump with little or no restraint. Their talk will be bitter, sour and acidic. In other words, you will not die of sugar shock while listening to them talk about the man they hate, the man who made them all eat crow.
The media will be no more objective in its reporting about Trump than it was in its reporting about Obama.
But if you feel the need for a sugar fix just listen to Sean Hannity.
He is to Trump what the linked media were to Obama….
Never surrender, never submit.
The Republicans are in control of the House and the Senate and on the 20th they will also have the White House so I do not want to hear anything about compromise or working together or any other blather that involves appeasing Democrats.
Every time Republicans are in charge the Democrats tell us there is a mandate to work together. Bull squirt. There is no such mandate. The mandate is that Trump and the Republicans are charged with changing things from the screwed up mess the Democrats have made over the last eight years. If the mandate was more of the same Hillary would have won.
There obviously MUST be a mandate to do everything different or else a man who never held a political office would not have beaten a seasoned criminal, err politician like Clinton.
Democrats do not want to work together and when they win they make sure to let us know their mandate is to ignore us. Hell, when they lose they don’t want to work together. Take upchuck Schumer for example.
For the past ten months he has been screaming that the Senate needs to do its job and give Obama’s nominee for the Supreme Court a vote. Now that Trump won Schumer is vowing not to confirm Trump’s nominee (whoever that will be).
Now it bothers me not one bit that Republicans kept Obama’s pick out off the Court and it won’t bother me that Schumer will try to do the same with Trump’s, with one small difference. I did not oppose what Republicans did, Schumer did. Now he is saying he will do that which he opposed and every liberal who screamed at what Republicans did will back Schumer 100%.
I hope the Democrats do all they can to obstruct. I want Republicans to engage in no holds barred, no prisoners taken, all out warfare. I want them to exercise the nuclear option for every one of Trump’s picks for any position. When Democrats complain they can be told to sit down and shut up because they enacted the nuclear option.
Then I want Republicans to extend the nuclear option to include Supreme Court nominees and push through all of Trump’s picks. The Democrats will squawk but they opened that door. Hell, if we are lucky Trump will be able to replace every aging POS liberal currently on the SCOTUS and keep the Court from liberal influence for a generation or two.
I also want to see the Republicans use reconciliation to get rid of Obamacare. It is true that Democrats did not use it to PASS Obamacare but they used it to get things thrown in after it was passed. They also used parliamentary procedures to get the damn thing passed in the first place. They thought they had it in the bag until Scott Brown won the seat held by Ted Kennedy. Once Brown won they decided to use the Senate bill and craft the House to match it as their reconciliation process. Hell, the bill did not even originate in the House which violates the Constitution.
Republicans should dismantle Obamacare (which has been anything but affordable) and get rid of it quickly.
There are, of course, stories about Republicans being worried that this will go away and there will be nothing to replace it and they will get blamed for taking away people’s health care. I believe this is the case because Republicans are basically cowards who are afraid of looking like the bad guy.
I would like to see it go away and NOT be replaced. Government has no business in providing or facilitating the health care of citizens. It has no Constitutional duty or authority to establish or pay for the health care of people so it should not be involved in it.
The same holds true for Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid but those were pushed in and no one challenged them. Now they are nearly impossible to get rid of even though getting rid of them would be better for people.
The Democrats knew once people got a taste of the free stuff (which is not free) they would balk at anyone trying to take it away. People feel entitled to things and they feel particularly entitled to things that others have to pay for. Bernie Sanders is an example of this mindset.
I think people should be responsible for their own health care and government’s only duty is to ensure that companies are unencumbered in pursuing the business of those who wish to purchase insurance.
In any event, the longer this monstrosity is around the harder it will be to get rid of and the more expensive it will become.
It is time to turn back all the things the liberals have done. It is time to live in accordance with the Constitution and it is time to shut little whiners like upchuck Schumer up from the get go.
Make him sit in the corner and play with his safety pin while the adults set about fixing things.
Republicans, be ruthless or we will send you packing.
In other words folks, we have them down. Time to step on their throats.
