Thanks CNN! Worst media
moments of the week

Fox News, by Dan Gainor

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/8/2017 4:40:49 AM

It was a bad week for journalists. Many in the traditional media felt besieged -- especially those who work for a place called CNN -- targeted for scorn by conservatives and for investigation even by their fellow journalists. 1. This Is CNN: This week was extra special for CNN as the network continued its crusade against the president. First, its staffers whined about Trump posting a pro wrestling video modified so Trump appeared to be fighting CNN. His opponent’s head had been humorously replaced with a CNN logo. And then the network targeted the anonymous poster who created the meme.

The Children´s News Network is far from being My Weekly Reader which we read in grade school many decades ago or it´s big brother, Current Events for upper grades.

It´s a shame the Churlish News Network can´t take what they dish out. As the old saying goes, "If you can´t stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen!"

Let´s all get one thing straight, CNN is not a news organization. They are nothing but a "Smut Mill."

President Obama’s Hysterical Facebook Post
National Review Online, by Rich Lowry    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 9/6/2017 5:03:54     Post Reply
Obama’s brief vacation from opining on national affairs has ended. He’s taken to Facebook to blast Trump’s decision on DACA. Heavily rhetorical and sloppy in its arguments, it’s worthy of a post on the Huffington Post or DailyKos. A couple of things: –He again invokes the “if Congress doesn’t act” principle of unilateral presidential government. He says of the DREAM Act, “I asked Congress to send me such a bill. The bill never came. And…my administration acted.” This is not how our system works. –He pretends all DACA did was “lift the shadow of deportation from these young people.” Actually,

Hurricane Harvey revealed the
awesome power of real America
USA Today, by Glenn Harlan Reynolds    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 9/6/2017 4:59:27     Post Reply
Following the news over the past weeks and months was making me sad. It gave the impression of an America hopelessly hostile and divided by race, class and politics, at swords’ points over even the smallest disagreements, with a government that seemed unable to perform the simplest task effectively. Then came Hurricane Harvey, and the real America appeared. The government response to Harvey — unlike the earlier botched responses to Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy — seems to be going well. But the real story isn’t what the government is doing. It’s what ordinary Americans are doing. Across the affected area, Americans are

Over and over again, from the mouths of politicians in both parties, identity politics purveyors and cheap labor lobbyists, we hear the same refrains about President Obama´s 800,000 amnestied illegal alien youths: "They don´t deserve to be punished." "They deserve protection." "They deserve the American dream." Deserve, deserve, deserve. Over and over again, in countless cookie-cutter op-ed pieces published over the past month, so-called DREAMers have vociferously lamented President Donald Trump´s push to eventually undo their unconstitutional five-year reprieves from deportation plus coveted work permits: "DREAMers like me have flourished under DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood A

The Bob Menendez corruption
trial sure won’t be boring
New York Post, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 9/6/2017 4:31:27     Post Reply
For the first time in nearly four decades, a sitting US senator goes on trial Wednesday on federal bribery charges in a case that could have profound political impact. Prosecutors have laid out a strong case against New Jersey Democrat Robert Menendez in their indictment. But in the two years since it was unveiled, the Supreme Court has made it much harder to win a conviction. The senator is charged with taking nearly $1 million in personal gifts and campaign cash from a longtime friend, allegedly in return for political favors. Menendez says the favors were very much like those in the cases

Hurricane Irma, the most powerful Atlantic Ocean hurricane in recorded history, made landfall early Wednesday in the Caribbean islands. At the far northeastern edge of the Caribbean, authorities on the Leeward Islands of Antigua and Barbuda cut power and urged residents to shelter indoors as they braced for Hurricane Irma´s first contact with land early Wednesday. Officials warned people to seek protection from Irma´s "onslaught" in a statement that closed with: "May God protect us all."The Category 5 storm had maximum sustained winds of 185 m.p.h., according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami. The National Weather Service said

In a stunning and bold bet on the future of newspapers, Tronc, the parent company of the Chicago Tribune, has acquired the venerable New York Daily News. This deal for the tabloid, which includes the Daily News´ website and other assets, has been in the works for some months and was finalized Sunday. The deal carries a price tag of $1 and the assumption of operational and pension liabilities. "We think this is a great deal for the paper and for us," said Justin Dearborn, Tronc´s chief executive officer. "We expect it to benefit greatly from becoming part of the Tronc ecosystem." Tronc,

Comey and Clinton: Rigged from the beginning

Newly disclosed evidence that then-FBI Director James Comey began working on a statement to reject criminal charges against former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton months before she and other key witnesses were interviewed by the FBI shows that President Trump was right to fire Comey. The evidence proves that Trump and his supporters were correct to say throughout the presidential campaign that Washington operates on a “rigged” crony system that serves the interests of the powerful and rewards corporate globalists to the detriment of the American people. As evidence of the rigged system, voters sided with Trump during the campaign in often

Trump schools Obama on U.S. Constitution

Everyone knows that former President Barack Obama, our Great American Constitutional Law Professor, got mercilessly schooled by the Supreme Court during his eight years in office. Now he is getting schooled by a brash-talking, orange-haired reality-TV star and real-estate developer from Queens. I mean, this is humiliating. And so delicious to watch! President Trump never took a single law class — at least not that we know of. Because if he had, Mr. Trump would surely find a way to remind us every time he wanted to strut his legal stuff. Anyway, Trump University didn’t even have a law school. Yet, Mr. Trump

Canada demands U.S. end
‘right to work’ laws
as part of NAFTA talks
Globe and Mail [Canada], by Adrian Morrow    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 9/5/2017 4:41:08     Post Reply
Canadian negotiators are demanding the United States roll back so-called "right to work" laws – accused of gutting unions in some U.S. states by starving them of money – as part of the renegotiation of the North American free-trade agreement. The request is part of a push by Ottawa to get the U.S. and Mexico to adopt higher labour standards under the deal. Mexico, meanwhile, is campaigning to include its oil and gas sector in the deal. These major moves on the labour and energy files came over the weekend at the second round of NAFTA renegotiations in Mexico City. One group

Just past the Wildwood boardwalk — with its deep-fried Oreos and chocolate-covered bacon, t-shirts deifying The Donald and putting Disney princesses in mugshots, amusement rides and redemption games — is the beach and then the Atlantic Ocean, the literal end of the road. We’re half a block away, sharing with another family a four-bedroom house that would be a mansion in the city. I’m not complaining, but it’s running about as much to rent at the end of the summer as our home south of Prospect Park, by no means a mansion, would go for any time. My wife asked our waitress

Electromagnetic pulse attack
on grid could ‘cripple’ society
Boston Herald, by Jack Encarnacao    Original Article

North Korea has threatened to launch an electromagnetic pulse attack that could shut down the United States’ power grid — causing months of blackouts that could bring society to a halt, with rampant crime and social chaos. Experts say the threat posed by an EMP — the side effect of an atmospheric nuclear detonation — is significant, and New England is particularly vulnerable. The rogue communist state announced yesterday it detonated what it described as a hydrogen bomb in an underground site, its sixth and by far most powerful nuclear test to date. It also released photos of dictator Kim

The Santa Ana River in Orange County, California doesn’t look like most people’s idea of a river. It looks more like the concrete spillways you see in movies shot in Los Angeles, at least most of the time. Along the Santa Ana River is a bike path that allows people to ride all the way from Prado Dam past Angels Stadium in Anaheim to the ocean. Next to that path is a dirt shoulder that has increasingly become home to hundreds of homeless people living in makeshift tents. Some OC residents are afraid to jog or ride the trail and

As most of the nation celebrates the volunteerism so evident in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, a sense of disquiet seems to be afoot among fans of Big Government. People who spontaneously organize impressive responses might make the public feel as though government doesn’t have all the answers, and that self-reliance beats waiting for the government to solve their problems. Why, that´s troubling. Something like this mental process must have prompted New Yorker editor David Remnick to greenlight this article, titled, “Why does American need the Cajun Navy?” Benjamin Wallace-Wells (you already guessed the author would have a hyphenated last name,

The American Civil Liberties Union is warning President Trump that only Congress can authorize a military strike on North Korea as tensions with Pyongyang continue to run hot. “The American Civil Liberties Union strongly urges you to uphold the Constitution, and the fundamental principle of separation of powers, by recognizing the sole authority of Congress to declare war — and to refrain from the use of force against North Korea in the absence of explicit congressional authorization for the use of force,” the group wrote in a letter to Trump on Tuesday. “This drumbeat of threats over the past several

Former First Lady Michelle Obama recreated Beyonce’s “Formation” look for the singer’s birthday Monday, despite the fact some police groups have labeled the music video anti-cop. Obama, Serena Williams, Kelly Rowland, and other celebrities took photographs donning the pigtail braids, black hat, and statement necklace from the “Formation” music video. The song has faced controversy from police groups because of images highlighted in the music video, including Beyonce standing on a sinking police cruiser in the intro. The video also features a wall that reads, “stop shooting us,” and shows a child dancing in front of police officers who are

HOUSTON—Magdalena and her family made it through Hurricane Harvey intact, but the fierce storm continues to devastate her family’s already meager finances. Before the storm, Magdalena — who asked to only be identified by her first name because she is an undocumented immigrant from El Salvador living in the U.S. illegally— and her household of seven were barely subsisting on the poverty-level wages her sister and brother-in-law bring home from their jobs at a factory and meatpacking plant. Then Harvey lashed the Texas coast and flooded one of the rooms in their squat two-bedroom apartment in southeast Houston. Even worse

She chose a boyfriend outside of her family´s strict regime, and paid with her life by being tortured to death by her father, uncle and cousins and unceremoniously dumped in a suitcase. Banaz Mahmod was raped, tortured and strangled with a length of plastic cord at her parents´ home in a brutal honour killing after her family felt she had "shamed" them by divorcing her arranged marriage husband and choosing her own partner. The Kurdish 20-year-old had even heard her family discussing the plot to kill her and her boyfriend at a ´family war council´ and had delivered a handwritten

Established story about how

wrong, claims controversial new study

The belief that humans came out of Africa millions of years ago is widely believed. But it might be about to be entirely re-written, according to the authors of a new study. They claim to have found a footprint in Crete that could change the narrative of early human evolution, suggesting that our ancestors were in modern Europe far earlier than we ever thought. The accepted story of the human lineage has been largely set since researchers found fossils of our early ancestors in South and East Africa, in the middle of the 20th century. Later discoveries appeared to suggest that those

Better a million dead North Koreans than a thousand dead Americans. The fundamental reason our government exists is to protect our people and our territory. Everything else is a grace note. And the words we never should hear in regard to North Korea’s nuclear threats are “We should’ve done something.” Instead, we should do something. Pyongyang’s Sunday test of a hydrogen bomb of devastating power begs for decisive action. Must we wait until Americans die? A preemptive strike against Kim Jong-un’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs would be a terrible thing, demanding a vast military effort (if done properly)

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is blaming Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) for doing “lasting damage” to her campaign and “paving the way” for President Trump’s attack against her as “Crooked Hillary.” According to excerpts of Clinton’s new campaign tell-all book, “What Happened,” Clinton claims that she wanted to fight back against Sanders’s characterization of her as beholden to corporate influence but that then-President Obama and others advised her to stay quiet. “Throughout the primaries, every time I wanted to hit back against Bernie’s attacks, I was told to restrain myself,” Clinton writes. “Noting that his plans didn’t add up, that they

Hillary Clinton promoted a new media platform Sunday that ostensibly collects and verifies facts. The website, called Verrit, advertises itself as a portal that "contextualizes noteworthy facts, stats, and quotes for politically engaged citizens." The site´s mantra, touted at the top of every page, is "Media for the 65.8 million," a reference to the popular-vote total Clinton received in the 2016 presidential election. Almost immediately after Clinton tweeted in support of the site on Sunday evening, it was hit with a denial-of-service attack, forcing the site offline for several hours. In an interview Monday, Verrit founder and CEO Peter Daou
