The Nunes Memo and the Death
of American Journalism

American Conservative, by Robert W. Merry

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 2/6/2018 7:59:55 AM

Charlie Savage is a clever guy. The New York Times reporter managed to get a full-fledged editorial into the news section of his paper when the controversial Nunes memo was released on Friday. He did it through a journalistic device that is likely to be more widely used in the future as standards of objectivity and fairness continue to wither: an “annotated” version of the original document. The memo, three and a half pages long and compiled by House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes, documents what the Wall Street Journal calls “disturbing facts about how the FBI and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court appear

Well, okay. I´m about ready to take the Democrats and their media whores at their own game. It obviously is acceptable for the party in power to use the weapons of government against their political opponents.

Go to it, guys.

The organ grinder (Clinton) has been replace with the monkey (media).
Hillary Clinton like Obama is driven by pure evil deeds and nothing is beyond the pale to them.
The NYT and others are trying desperately to muddy the waters of Nunes memos.

The great thing about the corrupt Enemedia´s ongoing coverup of Lightbringer Administration and Clinton crimes is that it´s there everyday in black and white on the internet for all to see. In a MAGA world, it could and should be used as evidence in court against them, should justice ever be served.

They are unfortunately not dead. The country would be better off if they were dead, but they have become a purely destructive, totally hateful extreme left of center 24/7 Dem propaganda machine.

They pretend to be "reporting" but they are always in total propaganda mode, always.

No longer the ´biased media´, but now the Enemedia, 90-95% of them.

The FBI leaked the dossier to the Media and then used those Media reports as confirming evidence for the FISA Warrants.

Is Ocasio-Cortez Afraid
of Candace Owens?
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 8/13/2018 6:27:51 AM     Post Reply
Everyone’s favorite Democratic socialite continues to entertain, and not merely because of her unique views about how the world works beyond Westchester, NY. She has kept us in stitches with her claim that Medicare-for-All will save the nation zillions in funeral expenses, her weird belief that questions about the costs of M4A are merely GOP talking points, and her unique theory about the SCOTUS ruling in NFIB v. Sebelius. Now she has us slapping our thighs with comical excuses for refusing to participate in a debate about the virtues of socialism versus those of capitalism with black conservative Candace Owens.

   

 

  


 
New York Times Columnist Can’t Figure Out
If Racist Tweets Are A Fireable Offense Or Not
The Federalist, by Sean Davis    Original Article

New York Times columnist Bret Stephens, an outspoken NeverTrump activist, effusively praised ABC when it fired Roseanne Barr for a single tweet, but when it comes to a mountain of racist tweets over nine years, he says his new colleague Sarah Jeong deserves a whole lot of grace and a second chance. What could possibly explain this blatant double standard? To recap: Roseanne Barr, creator and star of the hit sitcom bearing her name, was swiftly fired by ABC in May after she posted a tweet comparing former Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, who is black, to a terrorist ape.

Will the media ever call out
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez´s ignorance?

I know it’s racist to call LeBron James dumb, but what about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? The New York Democratic congressional candidate got at least some real questions during an interview this week on CNN. If weren’t for Ocasio-Cortez being an attractive minority, the rest of the media would be calling her the next Sarah Palin. Democrats, if they’re ethnic and look good on TV, typically get one question from the press: “Are you running for president?” It’s the sole reason Sens. Kamala Harris of California and Cory Booker of New Jersey are considered “top contenders” for the 2020 Democratic nomination. But even after the mostly

Earlier this week, Candace Owens, a young black conservative, was shouted out of a restaurant by a white crowd screaming obscenities and racial epithets at her and her dining companion, Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk (who is white). The police had to be called, and the mob shouted obnoxious slurs at the officers as well. Owens tweeted: "To be clear: ANTIFA, an all-white fascist organization, just grew violent and attacked an all-black and Hispanic police force. "Because I, a BLACK woman, was eating breakfast. "Is this the civil rights era all over again?" It is. And many Democrats are on the wrong

Bluto: Over? Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Otter: [whispering] Germans? Boon: Forget it, he´s rolling. And it´s not over now! They may not be as articulate as Bluto from "Animal House," but America´s Republican loyalists—particularly the #MAGA hat crowd—want the rest of the country to know that they don´t accept the predictions of certain electoral doom this November. And it turns out they have some data to keep their hopes alive. You just have to look really hard to find it. At first glance, the topline numbers look terrible for President Trump and his party: The president´s approval is an underwhelming 43

Big tech has made a big mistake. Swept up in a wave of political correctness and the fallout from the Russia investigation, many of the largest online platforms have embarked upon a fruitless adventure in censorship that can only further divide rather than unite the nation. These internet companies have lost sight of the most basic principle underlying the First Amendment, that no matter how uncomfortable it makes us, we must put our trust in the power of a free market of ideas. I have never read anything by Alex Jones or InfoWars, nor have any desire to read any of

   

 



 
Cranky judge, flawed witness
threaten Mueller’s Manafort case
Politico, by Darren Samuelson and Josh Gerstein    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 8/9/2018 10:01:31 AM     Post Reply
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team of prosecutors have spent several days building what many legal experts consider a slam-dunk case against President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort. But it has been surprisingly hard going at times, and as they prepare to rest their case as early as Thursday, they bear battle wounds that Manafort’s lawyers are sure to exploit as they mount their defense.Even as Mueller’s team methodically piled up evidence of Manafort’s alleged tax and bank fraud, jurors have seen the special counsel’s case hit some potholes. Most notably, Manafort’s attorneys have painted the prosecution’s star witness, Rick Gates,

John Kasich: GOP needs
unifying message, less chaos

Ohio Gov. John Kasich on Sunday said the GOP needs to find a unifying message to tamp down the “chaotic environment” that seems to dominate political discourse today, citing a narrow victory for Republican Troy Balderson in a special congressional election that should have been a slam dunk for his party. Mr. Balderson appears to have squeaked out a win in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District, where Republicans previously won with “overwhelming numbers,” as the governor put it. That’s raising fears among Republicans about their prospects in swing districts this November. “What you had is a, I think, a message from

"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. The Boston Globe has been contacting newspaper editorial boards and proposing a "coordinated response" to President Trump´s escalating "enemy of the people" rhetoric. "We propose to publish an editorial on August 16 on the dangers of the administration´s assault on the press and ask others to commit to publishing their own editorials on the same date," The Globe said in its pitch to fellow papers. The effort began just a few days ago.

Tennessee has carried out its first execution in nearly a decade using a controversial cocktail of drugs including a lethal ingredient described by the Supreme Court as "chemically burning at the stake". Billy Ray Irick, an inmate convicted of the 1985 rape and murder of seven-year-old Paula Dyer, received a three-drug injection on Thursday night after the US Supreme Court denied a final request to stay his execution. The lethal injection consisted of midazolam, used as sedative during an execution, a muscle-relaxer called vecuronium bromide, and compounded potassium chloride, the agent that stops the heart.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said Sunday that it´s in President Trump´s best interest to let special counsel Robert Mueller complete his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Rubio, appearing on "Fox News Sunday," echoed a number of his Republican colleagues in defending the special counsel in the face of Trump´s call last week for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to end the Mueller investigation. Rubio said the "best thing that can happen" for Trump and the country is for the investigation to "run the course and for all the truth to come out."

In an op-ed for the Boston Globe, Dani Rodrik, professor of international political economy at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, calls for what is effectively an academic blacklisting of members of the Trump administration, who, Rodrik contends, should be prohibited from receiving "even a semblance of honor or recognition" from the gatekeepers of higher learning. "Universities should uphold both free inquiry and the values of liberal democracy," writes Rodrik. "The first calls for unhindered exchange and interaction with Trumpist views. The second requires that the engagement be carefully calibrated, with not even a semblance of honor or recognition bestowed

Fox News personality Abby Huntsman has bid a tearful farewell to Fox and Friends Weekends after announcing she was jumping ship to ABC´s The View. Huntsman hosted her last show on Sunday morning after three years with the cable news network. Joined on the couch by her husband and daughter, the 32-year-old tearfully thanked her co-hosts Ed Henry and Pete Hegseth after viewing a montage video of her time on the show.

A Gallup poll released Monday finds that – for the first time in the poll company’s data collection over the past decade – Democrats view socialism more positively than capitalism. The current survey demonstrates only 47 percent of Democrats view capitalism positively, a drop from 56 percent in 2016. Democrats’ view of socialism, however, has remained positive since 2010, with 57 percent having a positive perspective. Meanwhile, Republicans have remained positive about capitalism, with 71 percent taking that perspective and only 16 percent stating they have a positive view of socialism. The poll finds younger Americans have shown the greatest
