Sen. Warner: Congress ‘Going to Have
to Address’ Dissemination of ‘Fake News’

Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/17/2017 12:15:53 PM

Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.), the ranking member of the Senate intelligence committee, appeared on several Sunday talk shows to discuss the never-ending, constantly expanding investigation into any possible connections between the Trump campaign and Russia. (Snip) “I think the whole role of these social media platforms in terms of disseminating fake news is a policy question that we´re going to have to address,” Warner said. Here is the entire exchange between Warner and host John Dickerson: “Another area that it´s -- it appears you´re interested in is the data operation of the Trump campaign, which Jared Kushner was overseeing. Explain that,”

And just what do those weasle words mean coming from that Democrat hack? You know when Democrats start blathering on like that it usually involves censoring conservatives. Now he wants to investigate Internet bots? I doubt that he will do that related to those who bombard sponsors when they want them stop advertising shows like Hannity. Where is Richard Burr? Has he permanently gone underground? You would never know he is the leader of that committee because Warner is the only one who appears before the cameras.

I suspect he wants to suppress the real news of the internet so the fake news of the mainstream media is all that is available.

There is a difference between political sites which report events and put a decided spin on them and completely fake "news" that circulates on places like Facebook.

The only reform that should be undertaken is to make it easier for public figures to obtain legal redress from those who knowingly publish false information about them.

This is a direct attack on Trump and his use of Twitter. Make no mistake, the Dems´ ability to control the narrative has been destroyed by Trump´s use of twitter. And the Dems are livid! Nothing new in the Dem approach to limit 1st Amendment rights. Democrats, liberal, anti-progressives hate freedom of speech and will do anything to squelch it.

The last Republican to run against Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.) called on him to step down "as quickly as possible" following his Wednesday cancer diagnosis. Dr. Kelli Ward is running against Sen. Jeff Flake (R., Ariz.) in the 2018 Republican primary and made her comments about McCain on an Indiana talk radio show Thursday, CNN reports.

Officials in the Trump administration´s State Department are standing by a recent report criticized by Congress that blamed Israel for terror attacks and claimed Palestinians rarely incite violence, telling the Washington Free Beacon that it remains unclear why terrorists engage in violent acts. Rep. Peter Roskam (R., Ill.), co-chair of the House Republican Israel Caucus, criticized the State Department Thursday for releasing a report portraying Israel as the culprit in terrorism and downplaying Palestinian incitement of violent acts against the Jewish state, the Free Beacon first reported. Roskam demanded the State Department alter its report to bring it more in

DENVER — School’s out, but the battle between the teachers’ unions and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos over school choice isn’t taking a summer break. Randi Weingarten, American Federation of Teachers president, argued in a fiery speech Thursday to 1,400 union members that school-choice programs such as vouchers and tuition tax credits are rooted in segregation and racism. “Make no mistake: This use of privatization, coupled with disinvestment are only slightly more polite cousins of segregation,” said Ms. Weingarten at the AFT meeting in Washington, D.C.

Obama-era national security adviser Susan Rice, who has faced allegations of spying on the Trump campaign last year, met privately on Friday with the Senate Intelligence committee in its ongoing investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election. “Ambassador Rice met voluntarily with the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence today as part of the committee’s bipartisan investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 US presidential election,” said Erin Pelton, a spokesperson for Ms. Rice, who also served as the Obama administration’s United Nations ambassador. “Ambassador Rice appreciates the Committee’s efforts to examine Russia’s efforts to interfere, which violated one

The Senate Judiciary Committee is subpoenaing the co-founder of the firm tied to a controversial opposition research dossier on President Trump to testify before the committee next week. Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said the move came after Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of Fusion GPS, declined to speak before the committee on Wednesday. "A subpoena has been issued to compel his attendance. Simpson’s attorney has asserted that his client will invoke his Fifth Amendment rights in response to the subpoena," the Senate leaders said in a statement.

Major portions of the Republican bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare will require 60 votes, according to the Senate parliamentarian, meaning they are unlikely to survive on the floor. The parliamentarian has advised senators that several parts of the bill could be stripped out, according to a document released Friday by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee. (Read the guidance here.) The provisions that would likely be removed include polices important to conservatives, such as restrictions on tax credits being used for insurance plans that cover abortion.

Russia’s ambassador to Washington told his superiors in Moscow that he discussed campaign-related matters, including policy issues important to Moscow, with Jeff Sessions during the 2016 presidential race, contrary to public assertions by the embattled attorney general, according to current and former U.S. officials. Ambassador Sergey Kislyak’s accounts of two conversations with Sessions — then a top foreign policy adviser to Republican candidate Donald Trump — were intercepted by U.S. spy agencies, which monitor the communications of senior Russian officials both in the United States and in Russia. Sessions initially failed to disclose his contacts with Kislyak and then said

“I like Hillary. ... I hope she runs, she is incredibly competent.” Those words sound like something former President Barack Obama might have said, but they’re actually from Anthony Scaramucci, who was introduced to the public as the communications director for the Trump White House on Friday. Within hours of the announcement of Scaramucci’s hiring, journalists and social media users had scrolled through his Twitter feed and uncovered a trove of posts that seemingly contradict things Trump has said on the campaign trail and in office. Gizmodo dug up tweets from the 2016 campaign in which he expressed support for

The Humiliation Of Jeff Sessions- There is something more than a little jarring in the ongoing humiliation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. In an ill-timed, ill-focused interview with the NYT, President Trump revisited his disdain for Sessions, his first, most-ardent and most-loyal supporter in the Senate. When supporting Trump was still considered career suicide, Sessions donned the red cap anyway. Maybe it will prove fatal for Sessions’ career, after all. The president has not made a secret of the fact that he blames Sessions for the scandal that now engulfs the Trump administration, claiming in

Speaking to the Los Angeles Times, the 61-year-old TV host was asked to comment on a recent Pew survey that revealed 58 percent of Republicans and right-leaning Independents believe higher education has a negative effect on the country, a number that spiked significantly during President Trump’s rise to power.

The threat of an expanding special counsel investigation into President Trump’s finances has rattled his conservative base with fears that the New York billionaire could be brought down by shady business deals — not collusion with Russia. Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller has widened the scope of the Russia investigation to include Mr. Trump’s business deals, according to a Bloomberg News report. The president had warned that such a move would cross a line. “Those transactions are in my view well beyond the mandate of the special counsel, are unrelated to the election of 2016 or any alleged collusion between the Trump

Today the White House touted the accomplishments of the administration in the first six months, and the list included: “Attorney General Jeff Sessions implemented new charging guidelines to end catch-and-release policies.” Of course, the president’s not so focused on that part of Sessions’ record lately. As noted in the Jolt, Trump declared in an interview with the New York Times, “Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else.” Tensions between a president and attorney general aren’t new

We just learned that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is in a battle against brain cancer. Yet, he´s not letting that stop him from still speaking his mind on foreign policy. Reports suggest that President Trump has ended a CIA program to arm and train anti-Assad rebels in Syria. The senator said that is unacceptable and used it to suggest the Trump administration has yet to offer a comprehensive plan on Syria. He also predicted that Russia will be huge fans of this development, since they want to see Bashar al-Assad remain in power.
