Original Article

Appearing Thursday on CNN Newsroom, New York Times national political reporter Astead Herndon falsely labeled segregationist Democrat senators whom former Vice President Joe Biden praised for their “civility” Republicans.The day prior, MSNBC host Kasie Hunt made the same error by misidentifying Sens. James Eastland (D-MS) and Herman Talmadge (D-GA). She has since issued a correction, while Herndon has yet to follow suit. A partial transcript is as follows: POPPY HARLOW: What have we learned in the last 24 hours about the frontrunner in the Democratic primary? ASTEAD HERNDON: I think what we learned is similar to things that we’ve already known about the vice president.

I've heard a lot of conservative commentators discuss the long sordid history of the Democrat Party recently. I suspect this is educating a lot of people and the enemy is getting nervous. I could see Trump getting 25% of the black vote.

All historical fact can be changed by repeating a lie. History cannot stand up for itself, don't forget. Their m.o. is to state a lie and to have it repeated over and over again. That's how you change history.

Anyone with a minimal understanding of political history should know that Democrats embraced segregation and slavery. They kept a death-grip on the Southern states for nearly 75 years. It was rare for a Republican to even get 15% of the vote. They eventually realized they would have to vote Republican to end segregation.

That's part of the problem #4. Public and 'higher' education have insured most have LESS than a minimal understanding of history. It is intentional. And current misleading front page news such as this is also intentional. The buried, overlooked, minimal 'oops, my bad' non-apology is insufficient. Intentionally. They cannot drive smart sheep.

This is a sad reflection of the lack of an elementary knowledge of history. A few months ago some group claimed that Lincoln owned slaves. None of the people claiming to be offended by Plugs' history are offended. He is the lead dog and they will use anything to bring him down. All he said is that in order to get anything done you sometimes have to deal with people who don't share all your believes. Much as I loathe The Delaware Dummy most of the others in the demoncrap clown car are bat guano crazy.

Astead Herndon is black and therefore not to be held to normal standards of behavior, speech or accuracy. And, it goes without saying if you point it out when someone of Astead’s demographic position is either an ignorant dolt and/or a liar then you will become the target and labeled a racist (probably with gutter adjectives).

If AOC wasn't the prime example, Herndon would be the super dumb graduate of propaganda universities. Did she attend Boston College too?

MSNBC did the same thing the day before. I rather imagine that the DNC sent out a talking points memo to all of the usual suspects to blame the republicans for what Democrats have always done.

Joe Biden has offered two starkly different and contradictory accounts of his role in the 2011 raid that killed Osama bin Laden.After initially saying that he opposed the operation and told President Barack Obama not to do it, the 2020 Democratic front-runner changed his account to say he hedged in front of other official but privately told Obama to go ahead. Every other account of the decision-making process indicates that the former vice president's first version was true and his later accounts were not. In 2012, he said his advice was, 'Don’t go.' By 2015, he had settled on saying he'd privately told Obama to 'go.'

A federally funded program at Harvard University is offering “humanized mice” made with organs taken from aborted babies for prices ranging from $800 to $1,272, according to the fee schedule Harvard has published online.

Jerry Nadler is the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee and he’s currently leading what can only be described as a clown show of an investigation involving the President and his associates. After saying the Mueller report would be the final word, he and other Democrats have decided they want a do-over, which means dragging everyone who’s already been interviewed multiple times back in front of Congress for no real reason whatsoever. This had Nadler waddling into yet another “hearing,” this time with former Trump associate Hope Hicks being grilled. And when I say waddled, I mean that quite literally.(Tweet)
