The fake news media is altogether biased and only operates within the bounds of their established Leftist agenda. I don’t think I really need to repeat that, but the MSM continues proving this day after day with report after report, regardless of subject.
Recently, with many states having made the logical decision to reopen (after having made the originally illogical decision to lock down) and seeing Chinese coronavirus cases dropping, NBC News has tried to cast doubt on how good reopening states is as an idea, attempting to credit anything apart from the basic reopening to why the number of cases dropping in such states (and also trying to explain away why states that continue lockdowns are seeing rising cases).
Nothing but dishonesty abounds, but this is the fake news media, so it’s to be expected, unfortunately. We do not have an honest, unbiased media in this country, so we have to discern the truth of reality from what quackery these deceivers try to sell us.
NBC News reporter Sam Brock began by declaring, “Call it a COVID conundrum. In states with the strictest measures in the country, like Michigan, Pennsylvania, and much of New England, cases are on the rise, while in the South, states like Arkansas and Texas that have reopened businesses and ripped away mask mandates are seeing their numbers drop.”
“So what might explain the apparent contradiction? One theory: differences in testing rates. Alabama has experienced one of the biggest dips in infections, more than 52% in two weeks. But it’s also dead last in the U.S. for COVID testing.”
“How much does the lack of adequate testing have to do with the numbers we’re seeing right now?” Brock eventually asked an NBC guest, who is a doctor at Florida International University, whom replied: “When you don’t test you’re blind, and when you’re not testing you have a false sense of what the real problem is in your community.”
There is plenty of information now available about the Chinese coronavirus that it makes no sense for people to make these kinds of assertions or theories, especially as we have seen that over-testing can result in false positives. For example, we know that the virus has a higher rate of infection when indoors. That was actually one excuse given when states were locking down and unconstitutionally and illegally shutting down businesses. However, we also now know that the virus has an extremely high rate of survivability for most people.
Back early in the pandemic, we heard of survival rates around 97%. Still decently high, but considerably lower than things like the flu. There was at least some reason to be wary of this virus back then because we knew so little about it. But now we know a lot more, such as the fact that the survival rate is 99.9%+ for most people. What’s more, one idiotic thing this country did (and all countries which went with lockdowns, really) was that we decided to lock down people who were HEALTHY as opposed to quarantining those who were sick.
Remember phrases like “flatten the curve” and “slow the spread”? The original purpose of those things was to allow hospitals to not be overwhelmed by cases, since that would lead to catastrophe. Well, we flattened the curve and we slowed the spread as much as we could, with almost everyone in the country routinely wearing masks where they needed to, but bad-faith actors with PhD’s, as well as members of the fake news media, moved the goal posts.
The original purpose of taking a lot of these safety measures was to not overwhelm the hospital systems with virus cases and with normal, daily problems hospitals have to deal with. But at no point did the hospitals even come close to being overwhelmed, so much so that when Trump sent a Navy hospital ship to house patients in New York (back then, the epicenter of the pandemic in the U.S.), it was hardly used.
And now, we have states like Florida, one of the most populous states in the country with a notoriously old population (being a retirement spot and all), which reopened back in the late summer of last year and NOTHING catastrophic has happened since. Cases varied, but at this point, like NBC reported, they are going down, as are cases in Texas.
Speaking of Texas, Brock persisted with another theory: COVID fatigue. “Michigan, where people are just coming out of lockdown for the first time in months, cases are up more than 100% as demographics shift. Texas, on the other hand, began opening its doors months ago and just jammed 40,000 people into the (Texas) Rangers’ ballpark, many without masks.”
Dr. Neil Gandhi of Houston Medical Hospital posited that “A lot of individuals in the southern U.S. and especially here in Texas have already been exposed to the coronavirus, so many individuals already have coronavirus antibodies.”
While that is a sound and reasonable argument from Gandhi, he then proceeded to negate that with a very stupid argument, which I will get to in a second.
First, some context for that stupid argument. Brock eventually stated: “That leads us to the risky behavior that we’ve seen in places like Miami Beach, Florida, where numbers have only increased slightly. Theory number three: where young people are acting as carriers, as doctors are saying they’re returning to other states carrying the virus with them.” A dumb argument in itself, seeing as they’d be infecting other people in Florida along the way to their home states, yet Florida is not seeing cases skyrocketing.
In any case, he eventually said: “Bottom line: health experts say the falling figures in the South might be giving a false sense of security. Do medical experts worry this is emboldening those leaders who said this is a good idea to loosen restrictions?”
Which is when Gandhi gave his stupid argument: “We worry about if there’s a perfect storm brewing. If we remember, this virus always takes 10 to 14 to 21 days to develop. We might just be seeing the early effects of that right now.”
This is a stupid argument because Texas lifted its mask mandate and began to reopen more than 40 days ago, well past the point where one would see this virus act up and develop.
Not to mention that, again, FLORIDA HAS BEEN OPEN FOR MORE THAN HALF A YEAR! And, of course, this is completely ignoring the fact that there are states which NEVER closed, like South Dakota, and there are COUNTRIES which also never closed, like Sweden. And none of them are on the verge of collapse at any capacity – if anything, reopening/never closing ended up HELPING those places.
In any case, it was clear that the people at NBC News were throwing whatever they could at the wall to see what sticks, offering no less than three theories as to why locked down states are seeing surges in cases and why reopening states are seeing drops in cases. Anything to not give credit to the idea that reopening is the best option for ALL states.
Even if one wants to argue that reopening isn’t what’s leading to drops in cases, the fact of the matter is that locked down states have seen surges in cases. The prevailing reasoning behind lockdowns is that they help to slow the spread, flatten the curve, and prevent more and more people from getting sick. And that clearly hasn’t worked.
All lockdowns have achieved is financial and economic strain, mental health issues, surges in child suicide and depression, and a myriad of other problems that wouldn’t be there without lockdowns. And the ONE thing lockdowns are put into place to do – slow the spread of the Chinese coronavirus – they haven’t been able to do. It is evidently clear that lockdowns offer a false sense of security at best (not surprising that commies are trying to say that reopening states are the ones offering a false sense of security, since projection is a commie trait) and crippling, devastating, and often utterly fatal problems at worst, including potentially making the spread of the virus even worse.
Immunity is what people are hoping for, and locking things down only prolongs the issues. Not to mention that I have zero trust that the vaccine is in any way effective in fighting the Chinese coronavirus. That people say you have to get MULTIPLE vaccines is already a red flag. That Fauci has insisted that people who get BOTH vaccines still have to wear masks and social distance is another red flag.
If the vaccines actually worked, surely only one dose would be enough, and we wouldn’t have to continue wearing masks and social distancing since we would be immune.
“Oh, but the vaccine and the masks/social distancing is to protect other people, not ourselves,” liberals might argue. Bull. A vaccine is meant to protect the person GETTING IT. A mask is supposed to protect the person WEARING IT. The idea that they are supposed to protect other people is communist bullcrap meant to coerce people into submission. After all, “you’re doing something good for other people.” That is the appeal that these Leftists use to get people to wear masks and get vaccinated. At no point since the beginning of modern medicine have masks and vaccines been created and used for the purposes of protecting people apart from the person wearing/getting them, apart from surgeons performing surgery on someone with an open wound.
When one gets a tetanus shot, it’s to prevent one getting tetanus and being sick by it. When one gets a hepatitis shot, it’s to prevent one from getting any variant of hepatitis. When one gets ANY shot, it’s for the sake of the person getting it. Seemingly, except for the Chinese coronavirus vaccine, conveniently enough.
And even accepting the premise that those things are, indeed, meant to protect other people, how does it make sense for those WITHOUT THE VIRUS to adhere to this? Someone without the virus can’t spread the virus, and you can tell when someone has it because they will show symptoms. It has been shown that there is no asymptomatic spread of the virus, so why would PERFECTLY HEALTHY PEOPLE have to either wear a mask or get the vaccine if the purposes of those things are for protecting OTHER people from getting sick and not themselves?
If masks are meant to protect others, wouldn’t it make more sense for those who have the virus in their system to have to wear them? But no, it’s the healthy people as well as the sick people that have to wear them.
It’s this contradictory bullcrap that infuriates me about this entire situation, particularly as many insist that what doesn’t make sense actually does make sense and that the measures put into place which clearly haven’t worked are argued to have worked and to continue to work, or at least that getting rid of them would only make things worse when the evidence points to the contrary.
We are told to defer to the “health experts” who hide behind their degrees and pretend as though they are nearly infallible and any challenge to their illogic is nothing but a conspiracy theory created by someone who doesn’t have a prestigious medical degree (though that excuse doesn’t hold up when people with such prestigious medical degrees make similar challenges).
We are told to “follow the science”, as though science was Jesus, by people who, themselves, do not follow scientific reasoning or data. We can EVIDENTLY SEE that lockdowns don’t work, and this has been clear for nearly a YEAR. And yet, these people insist that what “science” tells us is the opposite of what reality and empirical evidence tells us.
Either these people are utterly incompetent morons or have a malicious and nefarious agenda to push, and we can only hope that it’s the former.
“A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.”
Years from now, I would hope, people will be able to take a look back at how numerous countries handled the Chinese coronavirus pandemic and come to the understanding that we allowed fear and panic to set in and drive our decisions in the best case, and allowed closeted tyrants to be free to rein in as much power as they could at worst. Hopefully, understanding this, they will come to know that they should not repeat the mistakes of the past and erode their own rights and liberties in exchange for a little bit of false safety.
Likewise, I would hope that they would allow for actual science to be the main driver of their decisions, not bad-faith “experts” who have plenty to gain from the stripping of people’s freedoms.
Because the people of today have largely been led to be as fearful of the Chinese coronavirus as they are about things like cancer, AIDS, etc., and treat it as though it were in any way similar to those diseases.
A recent Gallup survey showcased just how misinformed Americans are about the dangers of the Chinese coronavirus, and how many people who have the virus require hospitalization.
“Less than one in five U.S. adults (18%) give a correct answer of between 1 and 5%,” the authors of the study said. “Many adults (35%) say that at least half of infected people need hospitalization. If that were true, the millions of resulting patients would have overwhelmed hospitals throughout the pandemic.”
By political demographics, we see completely unsurprising results.
10% of Democrats, 26% of Republicans and 20% of Independents were correct when they said between 1 and 5% of COVID patients needed to be hospitalized. But the majority of all, including even Republicans, vastly overestimated the number. 41% of Democrats, 28% of Republicans and 35% of Independents all answered that 50% or more of Chinese coronavirus patients must be hospitalized.
Like the authors of the study said, were that to be the case, the hospitals would have long been overwhelmed with Chinese coronavirus patients. However, we never even came close to that in any state, even the ones that were worst off.
If you remember, President Trump sent a Navy hospital ship to New York back when that was the epicenter of the pandemic, and it was hardly even used. Cuomo whined and moaned about the “lack” of support Trump gave them, but he never even used the hospital ship to treat people in it. That wouldn’t have been the case if hospitals had been overwhelmed.
The reason for this overestimation of how bad the Chinese coronavirus is is quite easy to pinpoint: the fake news media created an environment of fear and panic.
According to an Ivy League-led study (so not exactly a right-leaning one), 91% of U.S. stories in 2020 were negative, compared to just 54% in non-U.S. media, even when there were positive developments surrounding the virus, such as fewer positive cases, deaths, and hospitalizations.
“The negativity of the U.S. major media is notable even in areas with positive scientific developments including school re-openings and vaccine trials,” said the study. “Stories of increasing COVID-19 cases outnumber stories of decreasing cases by a factor of 5.5 even during periods when new cases are declining.”
And while one can’t exactly expect the fake news media to be cheerful during a pandemic, there is a clear disconnect between the percentage of negative stories shared by the American media (91% negative) and the media outside the U.S. (54%). It’s not like things were just that much worse in America than in other places. Italy was very rattled early on, and many European countries “had” to go through multiple lockdowns (I put quotations around “had” because they absolutely did not need to do that. If one lockdown didn’t work, multiple ones logically wouldn’t either).
Even though the U.S. has the most reported cases of the Chinese coronavirus (remember, China stopped counting back in March of last year), the virus was never bad enough that it would warrant constantly negative news stories, even while there were positive developments.
The reason as to why the news were so consistently negative is clear: the fake news media had an agenda to get rid of President Trump. They took the opportunity a pandemic gave them and ran with it, claiming negative thing after negative thing and how Trump was just handling it so, so poorly, blah, blah, blah.
The reality is that he was ahead of everyone in handling the virus. Even while he was in the midst of the illegitimate and unconstitutional impeachment trial (the first one, that is), he was looking to get ahead in handling the virus by taking early action. Action, by the way, which was even praised by one of the Left’s emperor gods, Dr. Anthony Fauci, as having saved countless lives.
But none of that would matter to a fake news media which abhorred President Trump and had no qualms about showing their feelings. Constantly delivering negative news during the pandemic, particularly as it pertained to Trump’s handling of the virus, during a time when people were afraid and easily abused to the point where they would abandon their freedoms in exchange for a little temporary (and as it would turn out, fake) safety and would trust the word of even the most notorious of liars, would be a big help to the Left in defeating President Trump.
Of course, as we know, it wasn’t the negative news stories that allowed for the Left to get rid of Trump. It was the mail-in ballots and general election rigging that allowed them to do it, but such an opportunity was at least helped by the fear and panic the fake news media was setting with their negative coverage. It got a lot of people who would otherwise have voted in person to vote by mail, and if you remember, Trump was far ahead of Biden until they started counting the easily falsifiable mail-in ballots.
But regardless of what actually got the Left to get rid of Trump, there is no denying the reason the news was so constantly negative was to make Trump as unpopular as they possibly could make him. It didn’t work, of course, but the attempt was still made.
And so, they did their best to instill within the American people a great fear and panic which would, among other things like hopefully having gotten rid of Trump, also allow for the communist tyrants to play Stalin for as long as they could, imprisoning anyone who would dare to stand against them and their blatant unconstitutional power-grab.
It is entirely unsurprising that 41% of Democrats, who are most easily fooled by the fake news media, believe that 50% of those with the Chinese coronavirus require hospitalization. Republicans and Independents were, also unsurprisingly, a bit more educated on the facts, though still a surprisingly decent number of them still believed that 50% required hospitalization.
In any case, let future generations judge the actions of those who went along with the fear and panic harshly, learning from the mistakes of their ancestors to never, EVER, allow for tyrants and liars-for-profit to deceive us into giving up our rights and freedoms in exchange for the promise of safety that never even comes.
I’ve shared this quote before in the past, but I believe it is adequate to repeat it here: Benjamin Franklin once said, “Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
Allow for me to add on to that quote with the reality of what happens to those who do:
Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety and will be deprived of both.
2 Corinthians 3:17
“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”
This is the third “Meet X” article I have written which demonstrates the utter hypocrisy of the fake news media, the Left, and BLM Inc. (but I repeat myself) when discussing unjust killings of people.
First, there was Ryan Whitaker, who was killed by police officers back in May of 2020, but whose story was not widely reported because Ryan was a white man and the narrative surrounding police is that they only kill black people.
Then, there was Cannon Hinnant, who was a five-year-old white kid executed by his black neighbor while riding his bicycle. His story was not widely reported because 1) the kid was white and 2) the killer is black. CNN, by the way, now has three stories where they mention Cannon Hinnant, and egregiously, they dare include the following paragraph in the last story where they mentioned him: “And in the midst of the same racial unrest experienced throughout the rest of the country, our collective hearts were broken over the senseless killing of 5-year-old Cannon Hinnant, who was White. Though the suspect, a Black man, was apprehended… many people in Wilson and throughout the country politicized this tragedy to counter the legitimacy of those protesting generations of institutionalized and overt racism…”
First of all, their hearts did not break over the killing of Cannon, because they took their sweet freaking time talking about Cannon, their first story was the length of 222 words, and have now mentioned George Floyd over 2,200 times in their own articles. And, by the way, this latest article wasn’t about Hinnant himself, but about elections in North Carolina.
Second of all, a bit rich to accuse others of politicizing that tragedy considering JUST WHO THE HELL THESE PEOPLE ARE. The media narrative is that white people are racist and black people are oppressed by them and their racism. That story ran contrary to that narrative, so they swept it under the rug as much as possible in order to focus on things which help their own agenda. Invert the races in that story and you would watch a nation cry for justice, as it should. But because Hinnant was white and his killer is black, that story is not only buried, but ATTACKED as being a political tool for countering “the legitimacy of protesting generations of… racism.” What a load of utter bullcrap, but what can you expect from the demons at CNN?
At any rate, now that that’s out of the way, let’s talk about Robert Howard, who himself was killed by a cop for no apparent reason whatsoever.
Robert Howard was a 30-year-old black man, who was killed by a Memphis police officer on January 5th, with the officer reportedly having forced Howard into his squad car and executing him while on duty.
According to WREG Memphis, “Patrick Ferguson, 29, is charged with first-degree murder, including aggravated kidnapping, tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse in the death of 30-year-old Robert Howard.”
Memphis police released a statement on Sunday outlining the allegations. “On Jan. 6, Howard’s girlfriend called police to report him missing. He had last been seen around 5 p.m. the day before in the 3500 block of Mark Twain Street in Frayser.”
“Police said an investigation revealed that Ferguson, armed with a handgun, encountered Howard outside his residence and forced him into his squad car. The two knew each other, police said.”
“Ferguson then drove to Frayser Boulevard and Denver Street, where he shot and killed Howard, according to MPD.”
“Another man, 28-year-old Joshua Rogers, also is charged with tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse in this case. Police say he was an acquaintance of Ferguson and helped him relocate the body.”
Assuming we have just about the full story here, what we have is a pretty gruesome and awful situation. A man was seemingly minding his own business when a police officer, whom Howard knew, used force to get him into the back of his squad car and, at some point, killed him and abused his corpse, with the help of an “acquaintance” of the officer who helped the officer move the body.
Howard does not seem to have committed a crime here and was seemingly just kidnapped. The only thing I really question here is that “acquaintance” status for Rogers, seeing as no acquaintance would just help someone with getting rid of a body. I imagine, if Ferguson didn’t really know Rogers all that well, that Ferguson paid Rogers to help him with that.
But at any rate, why do you think the fake news media didn’t cover this or that BLM hasn’t made this a massive spectacle? Now, you might guess that the date of these events had something to do with it. Howard was kidnapped and, likely, killed on January 5th, when the biggest subject was the Georgia run-off elections. He was reported as missing on the 6th, when the biggest subject was the pro-Trump protest which eventually led to some people rioting and storming Capitol Hill (while some also seemingly were just allowed to go in).
However, stories like these usually don’t get reported until a good deal later, so the vast majority of people were not even aware that this had happened. WREG initially posted the story on January 10th, so not that long ago. One could argue that a couple of days is not enough for BLM and the fake news media to make a big deal out of this, but here’s the thing: they won’t make a big deal out of this no matter how much time passes.
The reason for this is simple: both the officer who kidnapped and killed Howard, Patrick Ferguson, and the officer’s “acquaintance” accomplice, Joshua Rogers, are black themselves.
Without that fact, the story of a black man killed by a cop, particularly when it was almost certainly an illegitimate execution, would make national news and BLM would demand you to “say his name” and sports athletes would take a knee supposedly in his honor. But that narrative doesn’t really work very well if the police officer who carries on such an illegal execution is black himself.
The narrative only works if the following parameters are met: the “victim” (sometimes, they actually are the victim, such as in Howard's case, but not most of the time) is black and the officer(s) is/are white.
As with the case of Ryan Whitaker, the cops that undoubtedly extrajudicially killed him hardly matter because the first parameter was not met. Whitaker was shot and killed by a white police officer, but because he was, himself, white, his story was not told.
And with Cannon Hinnant, though it wasn’t a police-involved killing, it does involve race in a way. The killer was black and the victim was white. The narrative of black people being oppressed and white people being the oppressors doesn’t work here, so it’s largely ignored, and when people point out that fact and the hypocrisy that goes alongside it, the fake news media acts as though those people are just playing political games.
It’s really quite disgusting the way in which the “free” press acts in this country. Only *certain* groups of people get a story about them made into a big deal. Even then, only if *certain* conditions are met. If a white man is killed by a white cop, the story doesn’t get covered a whole lot. If a white man is killed by a black cop, the story definitely doesn’t get covered. If a black man is killed by a black cop, the story doesn’t get covered a whole lot. Only if a black man is killed by a white cop does the story get plenty of coverage.
And the reason for the killing doesn’t really matter. They made Rayshard Brooks into a big story, despite the fact that he had stolen a cop’s taser and tried to use it against him. They made Michael Brown a big story despite the fact that he quite literally tried to beat a cop with his own squad car’s door. They made George Floyd into a big story because, despite the fact he was not really a threat to the officers, he died in their custody (and despite the fact that he was later discovered to have been under the influence of drugs and he overdosed).
But if a black man is brutally and extrajudicially executed by a black cop, that story doesn’t get much outrage and outcry and coverage despite how absolutely awful that is.
Now, I can suspect the motive for the killing in the first place. Ferguson and Howard, as WREG reported, knew one another, so this clearly wasn’t a random kidnapping and execution. If I had to guess, it might have had to do with some unpaid debt or some sort of strife between the two men. But the fact of the matter remains that a cop kidnapped and killed a person for any given reason. That idea ought to frighten people, regardless of motive. And the officer should well face serious charges and, if found guilty, face serious consequences.
But despite the fact that such an astoundingly disgusting thing happened, the incident doesn’t help the narrative of the Left. Granted, they are currently trying to just orchestrate a not-so silent coup against the President of the United States, so I think that even if the cop had been white in this scenario, this story likely would not have been talked about much, but the point remains that they will not cover even extrajudicial executions of people by police if a narrative cannot be drawn from it to advance their agenda.
The fake news media disgusts me to my core.
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within are full of dead people’s bones and all uncleanness.”
I have often said, just about anytime I talk about the fake news media that they, at the end of the day, are a bunch of propagandists for the Democrat Party. The fact that 92% of the media coverage of Donald Trump is negative is a testament to that fact.
But it’s one thing for me, a conservative kid who has never worked in the media, to tell you, and it’s an entirely different thing for someone who actually used to work in the media to tell you the same thing.
Enter Lara Logan, former CBS journalist, in an interview with retired Navy SEAL Mike Ritland on his show “Mike Drop”.
In what she later admits is “professional suicide” for her, she rails against the media not simply for being left-wing biased, but for dropping all pretense of objectivity.
“The media everywhere is mostly liberal, not just in the U.S. But in this country, 85% of journalists are registered Democrats – that’s just a fact. No one is registering Democrat when they’re really a Republican. So, the facts are on the side that you just stated: most journalists are Left, or liberal, or Democrat, or whatever word you wanna give it,” said Logan.
That statistic, alongside the 92% negative coverage of Trump, further goes to show the bias that exists in the media, that has been there long before Trump even arrived in the political scene. The fake news media has been fake news long before Trump branded them as such.
She continues: “How do you know you’re being lied to? How do you know you’re being manipulated? How do you know there’s something not right with the coverage? When they simplify it all and there’s no gray. There’s no gray. It’s all one way. Well, life isn’t like that. If it doesn’t match real life, it’s probably not – there’s something wrong.”
Indeed, there are a lot of things that can be said about the Trump administration, both positive and negative. The media chooses to stick with the negatives (I admit I also tend to stick with the positives, but then again, I’m not 24/7 news coverage so there’s only so much I can talk about and I try to push back against that constant negativity against him when I talk about him at all. I tend to be objective).
While the media chooses to stick with hoax stories of Russian election interference, or Stormy Daniels, or campaign finance issues, etc., they ignore the millions of jobs created, the booming economy, the attempts at peace with North Korea, the near complete defeat of ISIS, etc.
I’ve often said that the media does not report on reality but attempts to alter it for those who watch or read what they have to say. Glad to see a former CBS journalist (don’t quite know if she herself is a Republican or a conservative, but she definitely is smarter than most people in the media) acknowledging the fact that the media is so left-wing biased that they are basically propagandists.
In any case, she continued: “So, for example, all the coverage on Trump all the time is negative… That’s distortion of the way things go in real life, because although the media has historically always been left-leaning, we’ve abandoned our pretense, or at least the effort, to be objective today.”
“We’ve become political activists, and some could argue propagandists, and there’s some merit to that.”
She also mentioned that it is pretty much impossible to get the Right’s side of the story unless you yourself search Breitbart to find the other side of the story.
All in all, I am glad to see Ms. Lara Logan saying all of these things. And I do certainly think this is professional suicide for her. Being a journalist, she just exposed the media for what they are. When someone exposes you for what you truly are, if what you are is a bad thing, chances are you are not going to like that person, and definitely wouldn’t consider hiring them for anything.
Truth be told, she has more bravery for this than Dr. Christine Blasey Ford did for lying about Brett Kavanaugh. Ford got something out of her deceit: tons of money and fame. Logan will probably find it hard to land a job anywhere in the mainstream media now.
Of course, her chances of landing a gig with a conservative news network went up, but there’s almost no chance of landing a job with CNN or NBC, etc. if she were to look for employment there.
But I am glad she had the bravery to say this. It’s 100% true, everything she said.
The media are a bunch of political activists. She didn’t want to go as far as to call them propagandists, simply saying that the argument could be made for that, but I have no qualms about calling them out for it: they ARE propagandists.
Consider the way they covered Obama. They thought everything that came out of his mouth was gold and everything he did was perfect. They were so enamored with him that they didn’t mind, or notice, when he fooled them regarding the Iran nuclear deal. He could lie to them all day and the media would pass it all off as the inarguable and absolute truth.
Regarding Hillary, it was much the same (for the time that she was relevant, at least). They adored everything she did, even when she was blatantly racist (“I don’t feel no ways tired” or Hillary “always” keeping hot sauce in her purse because that apparently will draw in black people).
Contrast that with everything they have to say about Trump: that he’s a racist, sexist, bigot, etc. That he’s a national security threat, that he’s unfit for office, that he’s a lunatic, blah blah blah.
So Ms. Logan is completely right when it comes to the media coverage of Trump and when it comes to what the mainstream media is. They are propagandists who don’t even care to pretend to be objective, just claiming that they are every now and then.
What Ms. Logan did here is important. She is exposing the evil of the Left, at least the Left-wing media. This, at the cost of her own career, is unique.
Like I said earlier, I do not know if she herself is a conservative or a Republican at any capacity. However, with this knowledge in her mind, I hope she will continue down the right path towards conservatism (if she’s not already there) and will come to find Christ as well (again, if she’s not already there).
Here’s hoping she will be able to find Christ and that we’ll be able to fight back against a news media that is hell-bent on distorting reality and making lies into truths.

The government shutdown lasted for about five weeks, with little appearing to have come out of it except for the media blaming Trump for it, as usual, and the Democrats actually being to blame for it (I’ll explain momentarily).
The Democrat Party, the fake news media and college students all come to the agreement that the President was responsible and the one to blame for the government shutdown.
However, that train of thought changes once people start to learn some information that is not shared by the fake news media.
CampusReform’s Cabot Phillips went to George Mason University to ask some of the students who they blame for the then-current government shutdown.
As I stated previously, and completely unsurprisingly, the students all unanimously agreed that Trump was to blame for the shutdown.
So Phillips followed up that question with a pretty interesting and important one.
After asking the students who they blamed for the shutdown, Phillips asked them whether or not Democrats should agree on a compromise if Trump were to offer added protection for Dreamers, $800 million in funding for humanitarian aid and a slew of new judges to get immigration cases moving along faster.
Every single student that said they blamed Trump for the shutdown said that Democrats should compromise if Trump were to make that offer. Of course, that doesn’t matter at this point, but the kids thought they should’ve taken such a compromise.
What they didn’t know is that Trump actually DID make that offer earlier last week.
Suffice to say that the students were pretty surprised at that revelation.
One of the girls Cabot interviewed even went as far as to say she was “pleasantly surprised” that Trump offered that deal.
When asked if the Democrats should’ve taken Trump’s offer, all of them agreed that they should have, with one of them saying it was “the wrong move” for Pelosi to turn it down.
Then, Phillips asked them what the students had to say to Pelosi regarding this. One of them told Pelosi: “Compromise, compromise, compromise.”
Another said: “Just get the Democrats to, you know, budge…”
One girl said that Pelosi should “have a more open mind”, which is outright hilarious to me, considering how often the Left touts themselves as being open-minded and tolerant of everyone who is different from them, which is a complete fallacy.
Again, this doesn’t really matter at this point, but it’s good to see these kids appearing far more reasonable than the Democrats… or maybe that’s a bad thing, actually. These kids are more reasonable than the people in Washington. May God help us all.
Joking aside, by the end of the video (below), one student summarized the reason for the shutdown pretty well: “It’s the Democrats not giving in to the Republicans. So they don’t want to fund the wall at all. That’s why the shutdown is currently happening.”
I don’t know if that kid knows this, but that’s actually a pretty great summary of the situation that really should open his and anyone else’s eyes.
The kid realized for that moment that the ONLY reason the government was shut down for this long is not because of Trump being some sort of crybaby asking for money for a racist wall, but because Democrats are so petty they will turn down a good deal just so Trump doesn’t get his wall.
This much is emphasized when the Senate decided not to vote on bills that would open the government and Senator Tim Kaine, who would’ve been Hillary’s Vice President had she won, was visibly celebrating the fact that the government would continue to be shutdown, at least until Trump and Congress reached a deal to reopen it for three weeks (and I fully expect it to close again and Trump will have to declare a national emergency because the Democrats don’t want to negotiate on border security, open government or not).
But the fact that Tim Kaine celebrated an effort to reopen the government being killed certainly is interesting. I thought the Democrats really wanted the government to reopen and help those poor federal workers to actually be paid.
But when it comes to putting your money where their mouth is (yes, I’m making a joke about them taking your tax money), they refused to vote or pass anything that would get the government opened again.
Aside from the Tim Kaine celebration, something else that won’t be on the news is the fact that last week, there were multiple votes regarding back-pay for the “suffering” federal workers in the House.
According to Rep. Lee Zeldin, one January 17th, only 6 Democrats joined every single House GOP member on a bill to pay federal workers. The bill failed 195-222. On January 23rd, there was another vote on a similar bill but only 10 Dems joined Republicans on it and the bill failed 200-215. And on the following day, yet another bill that would pay fed workers was voted on, with only 13 Democrats joining Republicans, leading the bill to fail 200-214.
Literally all Republicans wanted to help these “suffering” and furloughed federal workers to get payed and the Democrats killed every bill that would've helped them. And then, they had the audacity to turn towards a CNN camera (because they are apparently everywhere there is a major story, if Roger Stone is any indication) and say Republicans were keeping the government shut down and were causing 800,000 federal workers to suffer WHEN IT’S LITERALLY THE OPPOSITE CASE IN REALITY!?
But these college students answering Phillips’ first question, the one about who was to blame for the shutdown, in the manner that they did does not surprise me in the least bit. It is yet another case of the media being disingenuous about who was to blame for the shutdown.
Trump offered them a good deal (that is honestly better for them than for him) and they were so fixated (and still are) on not letting Trump have his wall that they refused his offer. Nothing short of a promise of resignation as part of the deal would make the Democrats happy and even then, I could very well be wrong.
And not simply because Democrats are incapable of feeling joy being the soulless machines that they are.
But the fact remains that, upon learning some things and being given some good information, people can find out the truth. That kid at the end, while he might’ve later gone on to continue blaming Trump, did come to the reasonable conclusion that the only reason the government was shut down, particularly for as long as it was, is because Democrats refused to compromise.
And if more people come to the same conclusion, that is bad for the Democrats. Like I said, pretty much every single student in that video urged the Democrats to take the deal and thought it was a mistake for Pelosi to not go through with it.
This is the necessity of informing the public. There are a lot of people who are either uninformed or misinformed about things. These kids were largely uninformed (can’t blame them since the media they consume won’t tell them what Trump is doing unless it involves Russia or trolling people on Twitter) before Phillips let them know that the reasonable hypothetical offer from Trump was an actual offer from him.
So there are two major things to take away from this article:
1) it is uniquely important to give people the information necessary for them to arrive to their own conclusions. Like I said, the student at the end actually summarized the reason for the shutdown pretty well. Phillips didn’t tell him that, but gave him the tools to let him come to that conclusion.
2) the Democrats and the media are disgusting liars. This much we’ve known for a very long time, but it’s always important to note particularly when Democrats shed crocodile tears regarding the unpaid workers and proceed to kill any bill that would actually get them paid just so they can continue their sorrowful narrative.
There is a meme out there on the internet of this guy shooting someone on a couch, turning around and asking “why would someone do this?” as though he was not the reason for it (pretty great example right below).
This tends to be the case with pretty much everything they do, to be honest. You could literally replace the guy with AOC, have the victim as New Yorkers living in poverty and have the text say: “why would billionaires do this?”
There are a number of situations that would perfectly describe what the Left does with this meme, but getting back on track, this meme also shows what they were doing regarding the shutdown/federal workers not being paid.
They killed bills that would reopen the government or at least allow for federal workers to be paid, turn around and blame Trump and Republicans for the shutdown and workers not being paid.
It is the epitome of hypocrisy and outright deception. And if the CampusReform video is any indication, it’s working for a lot of people.
Those kids had NO idea that Trump offered a compromise to the Democrats who went on to reject it. This lack of information, or the outright consumption of misinformation, is the only reason Democrats are even capable of winning any election or even being relevant.
If everyone knew the truth about them, they’d know the Democrats were the ones who fought to keep their supposed “right” to own slaves, were split on the Civil Rights Act of 1964, founded the KKK and did not allow for a black person to attend a Democratic National Convention until the mid-1920s, their first official Democrat President, Andrew Jackson, went on to slaughter the Native Americans that they go on to claim were killed by simply white people, and they inspired Hitler’s Nuremberg Laws with their own segregation laws.
There is a TON more that I can point to as to why the Democrat Party is the worst party in world history, tied with any country’s communist party, but that would make this article as long as an entire series of volumes of books.
But what should largely be taken away from this article is the fact that it is imperative that we share the right kind of information. Of course, that’s nothing new, but it is always important to remember to do this.
The only reason Democrats are even close to being as prominent and powerful as they are is because they are workers of deceit just like Satan.
“For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naïve.”

This past Saturday, very many people from both sides of the aisle took aim and lambasted a group of kids from Covington Catholic High School.
In a short and edited video, kids from the school are seen wearing MAGA hats surrounding a group of Native American protesters and chanting things.
From that video, and one Native American protester named Nathan Phillips who was banging the drums in one of the kid’s faces (picture above), the situation looks as though the kids were the bad guys, were harassing minorities and overall being threatening because they are white and are wearing MAGA hats.
The Mainstream Media drove this story because they saw the perfect narrative: white, Christian, Trump supporters, albeit underage, were seemingly being threatening towards a group of minorities. There were claims that the children were also chanting “build that wall”.
And conservatives who are seemingly in a rush to appear to be the good guys in the Left’s eyes (why attempt to please man instead of pleasing God?) were rebuking the kids as not actually being conservatives or Christians, etc., making sure to distance themselves as far from the raging fire as humanly possible.
Threats were made against the kids and their families, with people on the media and celebrities like Kathy Griffin (oh, look, there is the soulless monster again), asking that the kids get doxed (their private information be made public) so that they can be even more threatening to the kids in retaliation.
Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY) even “joked” that he is “calling for a total and complete shutdown of teenagers wearing MAGA hats until we can figure out what is going on. They seem to be poisoning young minds.” He said that in a thread where he went on to say that the incident represents a deeply-rooted problem of racism in our country, so I’m not buying that he was “joking” about this.
The media, because they had the perfect anti-Trump narrative - white kids appearing threatening to minorities while wearing MAGA hats - did not care to do further investigative journalism to discover the full story because there wasn’t any more that they wanted or needed to hear.
They had their story and they ran with it. “Who cares if the kids’ lives are destroyed by this blatant smear and outright libel? Getting Trump is our main goal regardless of the bodies we leave behind.”
That was basically the mindset of all of this.
Fast-forward 24 hours and we see more information made available. The kids were not surrounding minority groups. They were being called derogatory terms such as “f**gots” and other things by a black radical cult called Black Hebrew Israelites.
The Native American group was not surrounded by the kids – they made their way towards the kids. Their exits were not blocked by the kids. The kids weren’t chanting “build that wall” (which is not offensive even if they did chant it). They were chanting pep-rally cheers to drown out the hateful comments by the Black Hebrew Israelites.
The kid that was shown smiling at Nathan Phillips, the man banging the drum in his face, was not being cocky. He was trying to remain calm and diffuse the situation and, according to his own account on the events that unfolded, said a silent prayer that he would be able to diffuse the situation with inaction.
Eventually, the kids’ bus arrived and they left.
That is what happened, not what the media claimed happened and not what everyone from Hellywood to D.C. to MSM propagandists to supposedly conservative journalists believed happened.
And do you want to know what is one of the saddest things about this? Apart from the fact that these kids probably have been scarred to some extent by the level of hatred they received just because they are Christians, mostly white, and Trump supporters, this is the second time in 48 hours that a major news story broke by the MSM that turned out to be a complete hoax.
Earlier in the week, everyone on the Left and the Right was raving about a Buzzfeed story that said they had proof Trump instructed Cohen to lie to Congress. Buzzfeed, aka the site where you can take a quiz of what Harry Potter character you should marry and what your favorite snack says about your personality, broke this story.
Then, after a day of talking about it, it was discovered that that story, among the countless others that insisted this was finally the end of Trump, was yet another hoax and nothing but fake news.
Earlier last week, people had egg on their faces for talking about a hoax as though it was real and over the weekend, they did it again.
The difference between the Buzzfeed story and the MAGA Kid story is that the only threat that was made against Trump was impeachment (which has been made pretty much every day for the past 2 years). Not to mention that the target was Trump, who is the target of the fake news media every single day.
But the MAGA kid story included CHILDREN. Children who were not doing anything but were lied about as having been racist demons that harassed minorities. Children whose lives have likely been changed by this. Children whose futures were in jeopardy because the media was anxious about painting a story about white Trump supporters being racist, even if those supporters are kids.
No one is safe from the media, not even children. You can literally be a high school kid visiting the Lincoln Memorial, happen to be white, which is not something you have control over, and the fact that you are 1) a Christian and 2) a Trump supporter will set you up as a target of the Left.
The kids weren’t bothering anyone. The Black Hebrew Israelites were protesting something else entirely, according to Nick Sandmann (the smiling kid pictured above), when they noticed the group of white kids with MAGA hats and began to insult them.
Through the magic of editing and one Native American protester having a history of provoking and lying about white people, these innocent kids were made out to be demons of white supremacy and a symbol of Trump’s racism infecting young people’s minds.
The media, and many other people, wanted blood. They wanted universities not to accept these kids, their current school to expel them, and the kids to never be able to show their faces in public again.
And if any of them wound up committing suicide as a result of this, it would be seen not as a tragedy but as a great thing and that kid doing the right thing in some form of reparation for his own racism.
The narrative was the only important thing to them. And others, not wanting to appear racist in their silence, piled on and rebuked these kids as being racist when nothing could be further from the truth.
The fake news media has been trying to destroy Trump’s life for years now. But I have never seen them be this despicable.
It’s not like these Trump supporters were adults. They were kids with their whole futures jeopardized by an uncaring media that is more focused in driving a narrative than discovering the truth.
And this sort of thing happens ALL THE TIME. When a huge story breaks, that story gets a lot of attention. When that story is discovered to not have been true, the discovery garners less attention than the original fake story.
But again, these are kids we’re talking about. The media was more than glad to go after kids if the narrative demanded it.
And that’s exactly what happened.
Some people think that Donald Trump calling the media “the enemy of the people” is a bit excessive. Well, what else can we possibly call them at this point?
The enemy wishes to destroy you. The media wished to destroy these kids. The enemy uses any lie they can to hurt you. The media used any lie they could find to hurt these kids. The enemy will ignore the truth. The media ignores the truth. The enemy does not care who gets hurt if you ultimately fall. The media does not care who gets hurt if it can ultimately make Trump fall.
There is a very good reason I so often compare the Left to Germany’s Nazi Party. The Nazis sought the destruction of their enemies through any means necessary, regardless of who was hurt in the process.
The Left, given the chance, would undoubtedly do the same thing Hitler did to Jews, Gypsies, gay people, and anyone not considered optimal in their eyes. In other words, anyone that disagrees with them is made to suffer even if they did nothing wrong.
I find it sadly ironic that they seem to be going down the road of anti-Semitism, further emulating the Nazis.
But as it stands right now, the media is the enemy of truth. They did not care about the full story of the kids and the protesters. They only cared about the narrative the situation afforded them.
They were excited when the story broke out and undoubtedly were highly disappointed that it turned out to be fake news.
They were ready to shed some young, Christian, Trump-supporter blood, but were left with black protesters being hateful towards the white kids and the Native American protesters looking to escalate things.
Instead of the minorities being the victims, like the Left wants them to be, they were found to be the aggressors while the supposedly racist white kids who happen to support Trump and also be Catholics were found not to be the aggressors but the victims. The complete opposite of what the Left wanted.
The media, the Democrat Party, Hellywood, and overall Left are the enemy of the people. That much is clear.

If you know me, you know I do not tend to insult people. I always argue Leftists’ dumb arguments but never really call those people dumb. I call them out for what they are, but typically without insulting them. And if I insult them, it’s typically a part of a joke, to some extent.
As for Don Lemon, I will not insult him, since that’s beneath me. However, this needs to be made completely clear: he is, without a shadow of a doubt, a disgustingly hypocritical slimeball.
Recently, Don Lemon said some things that will leave anyone to cringe in utter disgust with the man.
First, on a CNN panel on Monday, he argued that he doesn’t see Democrats killing people because of political motivations. That the mail-bomber and the Tree of Life shooter were both right-wingers and that that is to blame for the violence.
When the issue of the shooter who tried to kill Republicans came up, he argued that there is no equivalency there. No comparison. Of course, that being bullcrap, Lemon does not explain why it’s different.
Second, talking with Chris Cuomo, Lemon said “we have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right. And we have to start doing something about them… There is no white guy ban.”
In the same sentence, in the same breath, Lemon urges people not to demonize others, all-the-while demonizing white people and Republicans. It’s truly sickening what goes on in this guy’s mind and what comes out of his mouth. So allow me to slowly, but surely dismantle this guy’s arguments and properly call him out for exactly what he is.
Let’s begin with the argument that he doesn’t see Democrats killing people and that the socialist shooter is different from the synagogue shooter and mail-bomber.
First of all, even this hypocrite can’t tell me the socialist shooter wasn’t trying to kill people. The socialist shooter didn’t bring his AR-15 to the baseball field and start shooting Republicans because he wanted to have a civil conversation about healthcare. He went there because Bernie Sanders said prior to the shooting that Republicans were going to kill millions of people by getting rid of healthcare or changing it in the least.
The socialist shooter was reportedly shouting “this is for healthcare!” while he was shooting. Miraculously, that nut-job didn’t kill anyone. But he definitely tried to, given he was FIRING AT OTHER PEOPLE!
Second of all, the mail-bomber already had a history of violence, and even sending bombs in the mail in the past. Not to mention that the bombs were inoperable. They didn’t blow up and were not designed to. If Lemon can’t see Democrats killing people because the socialist shooter didn’t actually kill anyone, then by that logic, we can’t see the mail bomber killing anyone because he didn’t. Lemon’s argument here is largely based on the fortunate technicality that the socialist shooter didn’t manage to kill anyone. But let’s not forget that he was definitely trying to and sent Rep. Steve Scalise to the hospital.
Third of all, the Tree of Life shooter was not a right-winger. He was an ardent anti-Trumper who hated the fact that Trump was so pro-Jew and pro-Israel. That line of thinking falls more in line with anti-Semites like Louis Farrakhan, Linda Sarsour, Al Sharpton, etc., who are all Leftists.
Beyond the socialist shooter, there are countless other stories of Leftists threatening the lives of anyone they disagree with and committing acts of violence. I’ve already written about that sort of thing TWICE, listing the rap sheet from Breitbart about the number of Leftist and media-incited/ignored/acceptable acts of violence against the Right.
I don’ trust that any of them wouldn’t go as far as to kill someone they disagree with should they have the chance to. That’s one of the reasons we have the second amendment and why we carry guns, just in case someone threatens and fully intends to take our lives.
If they are willing to actually terrorize people they disagree with, the next step is to actually kill them. The only political groups that have shown this tendency and attitude are Leftist political groups like Black Lives Matter, some of whom HAVE gone as far as to kill cops, and Antifa, who are one successful killing away from being labeled a terrorist organization the likes of ISIS, Hamas, etc.
Finally, let’s not forget that a Democrat HAS ACTUALLY KILLED a Republican in the past. Need I remind you that John Wilkes Booth successfully assassinated Republican President Abraham Lincoln? Booth was from the Democrat South, which hated that Lincoln was fighting them over their supposed “right” to own a human being.
So if Lemon can’t see a Democrat killing anyone for political reasons, he is completely ignorant of history. Not something that surprises me, but something that must be pointed out here.
Now, let’s move on to the racially-charged comment that honestly makes me, a Latino man, sick to my stomach.
The hypocrisy of that comment leaves me in utter shock. Not because I didn’t expect it – I certainly did - but because within the same breath, he calls on people to stop demonizing others and proceeds to demonize others.
What he means by that statement is that Trump and Republicans need to stop demonizing the media and the Left and just take that same demonization themselves. The media definitely doesn’t need to stop demonizing Republicans. Democrats definitely don’t need to stop demonizing Republicans. The Left doesn’t need to tone down on the inflammatory rhetoric, but Trump and Republicans do. Matter of fact, slimeballs like Lemon will flat out deny that their rhetoric is in any way inflammatory.
I don’t really know what else to say. Lemon’s comment speaks for itself. Aside from being hugely hypocritical, it is disgustingly racist. Saying that white people are a terror threat? How is this guy allowed on television? Trying to bring up the supposed “Muslim” ban (which doesn’t ban Muslims, just people from a list of Islamic-terror-related countries, and they know that, but they don’t care) and suggesting that maybe there should be a “white guy” ban?
Do you see now why I call him a hypocritical slimeball? His rhetoric is more inflammatory than he could claim Trump’s is, his arguments are illogical and flat out racist, and he, as well as the entirety of CNN, all believe what he is saying is acceptable and even right and correct.
And this comes in the same week that Far-Left writer Julia Ioffe said, on CNN, that Trump has “radicalized so many more people than ISIS ever did.”
She later “apologized” by saying she was “exaggerating”. But that, of course, leads us to believe she fully believes Trump has and is radicalizing people much in the same way ISIS does.
These two are not the only ones at CNN (or the broader Fake News media, for that matter) who have claimed Trump is to blame for the actions of the mail-bomber and synagogue shooter and is to blame for the current political climate.
But in doing all of this, apart from dodging the truth about those two nut-jobs (mail-bomber having a criminal history and the shooter being anti-Trump), they use the same inflammatory rhetoric they claim Trump is using, but even more so.
These people are unapologetic about their rhetoric. If they were, they wouldn’t be using it. For all their claims that Trump is dividing the nation, in reality, it is them who are doing that.
Trump, after the Tree of Life shooting, decided to go to Pittsburgh. The Left’s response? Attacking him, saying he shouldn’t be there. Trump, after the mail-bombing suspect was caught, gave a strong speech condemning his actions. The Left’s response? Trump is not being sincere.
While Trump’s use of “enemy of the people” to describe the FAKE news media (I capitalize the word fake because people tend to omit that part) might be inflammatory, it is nonetheless true. The fake news media constantly lies about everything, but that is the least of their sins that label them as the “enemy of the people”. Apart from straight up lying to people, they constantly label those they disagree with as racist, bigot, homophobe, etc. They label others as Nazis and fascists. They call Trump Hitler and a WaPo article even said he’s worse than Hitler.
In this labeling, they label everyone who supports Trump as a Nazi. Everyone who even slightly disagrees with them on anything as a Nazi. And Lemon, right here, is labeling those he disagrees with (and white people in general) as terror threats.
These people are filled to the brim with hatred. They hate Trump for everything he does and manages to do. They hate us for having ever defied their narcissistic behinds and choosing to support him. And in this hatred, they excuse actual threats and acts of violence against conservatives and right-wingers, all-the-while insisting it is us who are the real threat to democracy, to America, to people.
As human beings, I don’t consider the fake news media to be my enemy. As a Christian, I don’t do that. But as a political commentator, someone who wants what is best for the country, I consider them the enemy of the state.
Everything they want works towards the systemic dismantling of America as founded. That’s what the 8 years of Obama were all about. That’s what Ocasio-Cortez, Bernie Sanders, and every other Democrat is about. The fundamental destruction of the United States and the fundamental change towards a socialist nation in the likes of China, Venezuela, Soviet Russia, etc.
What they want is dangerous, and what they spew is dangerous. No, I would never harm any of them and anyone who wishes harm upon them, I disavow and no longer consider them conservatives because a true conservative would never want or do that.
But it truly must be understood that these people don’t care for America. THAT is what makes them the enemy of the people.
As for Lemon himself, I have nothing else to say. He’s a disgusting, hypocritical slimeball. I only have respect for him in that I respect his life and his right to his own opinion. Apart from that, he does not get nor deserve any sort of respect from anyone, let alone me.
I think he is someone in dire need of Christ. Looking into his eyes, I see someone who is dead inside. A typical trait for those who do not have faith in the Lord, and particularly for those on the Left. I sincerely hope he finds Christ. That is the best I can wish for him.

You know the Left is reaching for everything including the kitchen sink when they do what they are doing in trying to destroy Kavanaugh. It’s not enough that he be attacked on sexual assault allegations that have not been corroborated even weeks after the initial allegation. They also have to get him on seemingly “having thrown ice” at someone in a bar some decades ago. And now, NBC News is alleging that Kavanaugh lied under oath about the Ramirez accusation.
NBC News showed a series of text messages sent by a number of Kavanaugh’s friends that indicated that Kavanaugh was aware a classmate of his named Deborah Ramirez was looking for dirt on him to make some sort of claim against him. NBC News tried to make all of this sound as though Kavanaugh was aware of exactly what Ramirez was doing, what she was alleging and that Kavanaugh had lied under oath about knowing all of this.
According to NBC News: “The texts between Berchem and Karen Yarasavage, both friends of Kavanaugh, suggest that the nominee was personally talking with former classmates about Ramirez’s story in advance of the New Yorker article that made her allegation public. In one message, Yarasavage said Kavanaugh asked her to go on the record in his defense. Two other messages show communication between Kavanaugh’s team and former classmates in advance of the story.”
The perjury charge the fake news media outlet is looking for is that Kavanaugh had told Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) that he was not made aware of Ramirez’ accusation until the story was made public through Ronan Farrow.
Here’s the thing: Kavanaugh did admit that he knew Ramirez was trying to do something, but he did not know exactly what until the story was made public.
According to the Daily Wire: “Kavanaugh admitted, in a deposition conducted by Senate Judiciary Committee investigators, that he knew Ramirez was looking for dirt and calling around to a handful of shared acquaintances trying to substantiate her own claims, and that he discussed the flurry of activity with an ‘inner circle’ of associates. But Kavanaugh didn’t find out precisely what Ramirez was telling reporters until reporters for the New Yorker asked him for comment.”
What’s more, a conservative Twitter user who goes by the handle “@AG_Conservative” goes on the attack against NBC News and clears some things up.
First, they share the following tweet: “The media is the enemy. No other way to put it. They have lied intentionally over and over again in the last few weeks. And no one bothers to check.”
Then, they get into the meat of their calling out of NBC News: “The catch is the ending where they essentially accuse Kavanaugh of perjury. Wow. Really seems from that like they got him lying about when he heard the allegation, right?” and showing a bit of the news story where they accuse Kavanaugh of lying under oath.
They follow up that tweet with this: “Take note that they omit most of the actual transcript. All their evidence simply shows that someone in his group seemed to know Ramirez was trying to accuse him of something. Here is the relevant part of the interview Kavanaugh did. Note: ‘Incident matching this description'’” and proceeds to share this part of the transcript:
“All right. My last question on this subject is since you graduated from college, but before the New Yorker article publication on September 23rd, have you ever discussed or heard discussion about the incident matching the description given by Ms. Ramirez to the New Yorker?”
Kavanaugh replies with: “No”.
This is what NBC wants to get Kavanaugh on. However, AG_Conservative offers some insight with this tweet: “What NBC omits? Ramirez had been calling mutual friends for weeks looking for dirt on him. That’s how we know that she had admitted she wasn’t even sure it was Kavanaugh. Here is Kavanaugh later in the same interview with the committee:” and proceeds to share more of the transcript:
“What’s your reaction to that?”
Kavanaugh responds: “They couldn’t – the New York Times couldn’t corroborate this story and found that she was calling around to classmates trying to see if they remembered it. And I, at least – and I, myself, heard about that, that she was doing that. And you know, that just strikes me as, you know, what is going on here? When someone is calling around to try to refresh other people, is that what’s going on? What’s going on with that? That doesn’t sound – that doesn’t sound good to me.”
AC_Conservative follows that up by saying: “In other words, Kavanaugh had already heard and testified in the very same interview that Ramirez was calling around looking for dirt on him. He didn’t know the specific allegation, but he had every reason to try to pre-empt something from her.”
That’s why AG-Conservative pointed out in one of their tweets: “Note: ‘Incident matching this description.’”
Kavanaugh knew that Ramirez was looking for dirt, but was not aware exactly what Ramirez was accusing him of. So NBC News lied about Kavanaugh lying under oath. He was 100% truthful in what he knew about at the time: Ramirez was looking for something but he did not know exactly what it was until the story broke out.
But wait, there’s more.
According to the Daily Wire: “After @AG_Conservative’s systematic dismantling of their story went viral, NBC News made corrections, but Tuesday morning, the network was still pushing the story (though now with a vague reference to Kavanaugh’s deposition).”
Another Twitter user called them out saying: “The NBC story accusing Kavanaugh of perjury has been updated – without any note, or acknowledgment of that fact – and now includes a reference to the full September 25th testimony that flatly contradicts the claim being made. And yet NBC is still pushing it.”
This is the very definition of fake news. NBC News ran a story that was blatantly false by omitting key parts of the testimony so as to make Kavanaugh look like a liar when he isn’t and then updates the story, without making a note of it, and offers the evidence that contradicts their claim but does not retract the story or offer any sort of apology.
By which I mean not an apology to Kavanaugh, which honestly they (and everyone else in the media) owe to him, but an apology to their readers who take what they say to heart. They blatantly lie and omit things to shape reality instead of reflect it and then keep pushing the story but with the added bonus of offering the evidence to contradict the very ludicrous claims they are making.
This IS fake news. Every bit of it.
One way I would describe the media and the Left’s treatment of Judge Brett Kavanaugh is the following: they treat him the same way they have treated Trump, but on steroids.
What do I mean? Just look at all the different news articles about Kavanaugh. There’s the accusations of sexual abuse, assault, rape, etc. made against him, with no presumption of innocence and no need to corroborate the claims or issue any evidence in support of the claims being made.
They’re reaching for anything and everything including supposedly lying under oath, supposedly having thrown ice at someone in a bar decades ago, and even having preferred to play basketball while he was in college (I already wrote an article on that, so I won’t get into too much detail).
Compare all of this with the way they have treated Trump. They accuse Trump of having colluded with Russia and demanded investigations be made against him because of this. There was no evidence to suggest it before and during the investigation (I would say after, but it’s still ongoing, as much of a train-wreck as it may be).
Aside from that, they also accused him of sexual predation with that Access Hollywood tape (which doesn’t even accuse Trump of actually doing anything, just shows him commenting on something celebrities do) and have tried to bring forth multiple women to accuse him of sexual assault (though they all pretty much were abandoned when Trump won).
So the way they are treating Kavanaugh is the same way they have been treating Trump, but in a far bigger and more rushed scale.
Which is why it doesn’t come as a surprise to me when a fake news source like NBC News publishes a story accusing Kavanaugh of perjury while either ignoring the facts or letting people see the facts that contradict their claims.
This is fake news in a nutshell. And this is why Trump calls them the “enemy of the people”. To them, if you don’t agree with them, you are someone that must be destroyed. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t done anything majorly wrong in your life, they will make up anything they can and need in order to destroy you.
They would accuse Jesus Christ of sexual assault if they had to. That’s how depraved these people are.

While I have mostly been trying to stay off of this topic since everyone else is talking about it and I have already said likely what is the most important thing surrounding this issue: that the #MeToo movement is a Socratic issue of logic vs. ignorance, I feel compelled to talk about something that happened recently surrounding this entire issue, at least in regards to the way the MSM wants to portray this entire matter.
CNN interviewed a group of five Republican women from Florida last week to ask them some questions on their opinions surrounding this entire case.
Randi Kaye, the interviewer from CNN, asked: “A show of hands, how many of you believe Judge Kavanaugh when he says this didn’t happen?”
To which all five women raised their hands.
One of the women, named Lourdes Castillo De La Pena, elaborated further: “How can we believe the word of a woman from something that happened 36 years ago? This guy has an impeccable reputation. Nobody, nobody that has spoken ill will about him. Everyone that speaks about him. This guy’s an altar boy, a scout. Because one woman made an allegation? Sorry, I don’t buy it.”
Another, named Inna Villarino, added: “In the grand scheme of things, my goodness, there was no intercourse. There was maybe a touch. Can we – really? 36 years and she’s still stuck on that?”
With another woman, named Gina Sosa adding: “I mean, we’re talking about a 15-year-old girl, which I respect. You know, I’m a woman. I respect. But we’re talking about a 17-year-old boy in high school with testosterone running high. Tell me what boy hasn’t done this in high school. Please, I would like to know.”
And another woman, named Angie Vazquez, was savvy enough to ask: “Why didn’t she come out when he was going into the Bush White House? Why didn’t she come out – he’s been a federal judge for over a decade.”
Now, I have mixed feelings about these responses. While I do appreciate that these women are smart enough not to fall for Ford’s evidence-less accusations, some of the answers here are fairly questionable.
Let’s begin with the first answer, the one that Lourdes gave. She mentions that it’s been 36 years since this incident happened and that it’s only been one woman stepping forward to accuse him. While I am of the belief that the Left could and likely would recruit other women to come forth and accuse Kavanaugh of things he likely didn’t do, my bigger issue is with her initial response.
It doesn’t really matter how long ago something happened if it was wrong. Assuming that what Ford is saying is the truth (this is basically the only time I will do this as I do not believe she’s telling the truth), objectively, the only problems I have with this being so old are that:
1) Ford likely won’t be able to remember things in too great a detail. As traumatizing as such an even is for women, it’s also something they’d like to forget.
2) I really do have to ask why she didn’t come forward earlier than this. I believe that maybe she didn’t go to the police because it’s either an embarrassing thing to admit (though it was just groping, according to her, so it’s not as embarrassing as full-blown rape) or the police wouldn’t do much to investigate the issue.
So while I do have problems with the fact that this is an allegation of something that happened 36 years ago, if it did happen, it doesn’t matter how long ago it was. Now, Lourdes could mean to say that Ford’s memory likely won’t be too good and thus, the accusation might not be very credible, but she did not elaborate much further on what she meant by mentioning how long ago it was and why should we believe her considering how long ago it was.
And perhaps my argument is shaped this way because of what the second woman, Inna, said, about it having been 36 years ago and she’s “still stuck on that”. Maybe that’s the reason I made the argument that it doesn’t matter how long ago it was, and I believe that’s a fairly good argument, but Lourdes might not necessarily have meant it as “it was over 30 years ago, just let go!” That’s how I heard it, but maybe she didn’t mean it that way.
Now, the answer that Gina Sosa gives, about this being a 17-year-old boy with raging hormones and “what boy hasn’t done this in high school” does irk me a lot.
Understanding such behavior does not necessarily mean excusing it. Using the “boys will be boys” argument in this instance, under the assumption that Ford is telling the truth, is asinine and wrong. If Kavanaugh did grope Ford when they were teenagers (I feel compelled to remind everyone that I do not believe Ford’s accusation and this is entirely hypothetical) and if they were both drunk, the fact that they were teenagers does not excuse their behavior.
I was a teenager once and I dealt with my share of hormones. I would look where I ought not to look, I would think what I ought not to think and had impulses. But I never acted on those impulses, at least not with other people.
Sosa asks what boy in high school hasn’t done something like that, well I’ll raise my hand and say that I never did. In high school is when I converted to Christianity. Of course, I still dealt with hormones and emotions and impulses, but I knew better than to act on them. If Kavanaugh was a Christian when he was 17, and I mean truly Christian, knowing right from wrong and doing things with the aim to please God, then I have a hard time believing that 1) Kavanaugh groped anyone and 2) he was illegally drinking and getting hammered to the point where he would grope someone.
That’s not to say we don’t sometimes stumble and do something wrong, of course. As I’ve explained in the past, we are all sinners and sin is wrong. But being a Christian tends to lower the chances of doing something like that (and don’t bring up the Catholic Church priests molesting young boys because those “priests” are not Christians and neither is the Pope for ignoring it).
So Sosa’s answer really is not good at all. Understanding that teenagers have hormones does not excuse the actions they partake because of those hormones. If my 15-year-old daughter went to a party, got drunk and got groped by a 17-year-old boy who was also drunk, I would do a number of things.
First, of course, ground her for going to an unsupervised party (I assume it was unsupervised if there was alcohol) and getting drunk at said party.
Second, I would go to the boy, give him a stern talking-to, give his parents a stern talking-to and encourage my daughter to file charges the following day (and not 36 YEARS LATER).
Finally, I would give her a big hug and tell her everything’s taken care of.
But that last one is beside the point. The point is that I would be righteously pissed if a boy did that do my daughter. She would not be entirely without blame for being there and getting drunk in the first place, but I would be angrier with the boy. So Sosa’s answer, even without having a daughter, honestly annoyed me. That’s entirely the wrong answer to give, truthful accusation or not.
Finally, we move on to the one answer to the interviewer’s question that I actually liked, which is Angie’s. Why didn’t Ford bring this up in the past? Why didn’t she bring this up when Kavanaugh was going to the Bush White House? Why not at any point when he was a federal judge, or when he was going to get confirmed as a federal judge? Why wait until now when he’s about to be on the Supreme Court, nominated by a President Ford adamantly disagrees with?
A lot of things surrounding this case raises questions. Such as: “why didn’t she go to the local police soon after it happened?” Or “Why did she write a letter to a Senator 36 years after the incident happened?” Or “If Ford really did not want to come out to accuse Kavanaugh, why write the letter in the first place?” Or “Why did Feinstein sit on that letter until about a week before his confirmation vote? Why not raise this during the hearings I will henceforth dub ‘the Spartacus hearing’?” Or “Why did no one find this issue during the extensive vetting process Kavanaugh underwent before the hearings?”
So there are a lot of questions surrounding this issue that, to me, diminish some credibility of Ford. Add that to the fact she has no evidence or witnesses to corroborate her story or even the willingness to go under oath to testify in a trial that would be equally fair for Kavanaugh and I find it astonishing for anyone to believe her for any reason other than that she’s a woman.
Now, there were more questions from the CNN interviewer that you can hear in the video posted below, but I won’t talk about those as this article is long enough as it is.
The overall point of sharing this is that I believe CNN’s intent for this interview was to have Republican women openly going against Kavanaugh. I think it was an effort to have other Republican women be against Kavanaugh because these ones were. Although, it clearly backfired. I don’t think CNN expected any woman, conservative or liberal, to support Kavanaugh regarding this issue.
Although, I find it interesting that they didn’t get 5 Democrat women to lie and say they were Republicans who were against Kavanaugh. I feel like that would be more along the lines of the fake news nature of CNN, but I guess they decided to go with legitimately Republican women here and thought even Republican women would be against Kavanaugh.
Regardless, CNN failed once again and I get to laugh at their flimsy attempt to destroy Kavanaugh and subsequently Trump, since that’s always the aim of CNN.

And the best part is that it won’t cost you a single cent. And given the verse above, you know that I wouldn’t lie about that.
With a booming economy, a nearly defeated ISIS, a denuclearizing North Korea and successful trade war pressure to make better deals, the Democrats have to have something to attack Trump (and thus, Republicans) with in order to stand a chance at actually taking back the House. So, like with many other attempts, they go with a tried and true measure: blame the Republican president for a major hurricane.
While they’ve tried to do this with Hurricane Florence, since the effects of the hurricane won’t be known until after it’s gone, the Left-wing media is trying to make last year’s hurricane that hit Puerto Rico, Hurricane Maria, Trump’s Katrina.
Despite the fact that Trump’s response was excellent according to even Governor Ricardo Rossello, who said: “The president and the administration, every time we’ve asked them to execute, they’ve executed quickly,” back in September of 2017, and the fact that 20,000 pallets of undistributed bottles of water delivered in the aftermath of the hurricane are sitting on an airport tarmac, the Left is out to destroy Trump with a death toll reaching 3,000.
However, that number is about as real as climate change. How? The way this number came about was through the same way the Left argues that climate change is real: through a computer model.
Allow me to give you the context.
Last month, George Washington University published a new study that estimated “excess mortality” over Hurricane Maria’s impact on Puerto Rico, and estimated, over a six-month period following the hurricane, that there were 2,975 “excess” deaths due to the hurricane.
But the way they came up with this estimate wasn’t through counting bodies, but through calculations in a statistical model subtracting the number of people who would’ve died over that same period of time had the hurricane not happened from the number of people who actually died during that time period.
In other words, they ESTIMATED the death toll STRICTLY THEORETICALLY! As in WITHOUT EVIDENCE!
Now, aside from the fact that multiple news organizations are running with this number as the official death toll for Puerto Rico, the Left is also criticizing Trump over his comments regarding this.
Trump tweeted: “3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. When I left the island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths. As time went by it did not go up by much. Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000…”
“… This was done by the Democrats in order to make me look as bad as possible when I was successfully raising Billions of Dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico. If a person died for any reason, like old age, just add them onto the list. Bad politics. I love Puerto Rico!”
Now, it’s only natural for death tolls after disasters and tragedies to go up as time goes on. We’re still seeing people dying because of debris and other factors after 9/11, and Hurricane Katrina’s death toll technically kept going up even years after the storm. However, he is right in challenging these numbers. They are far too big in too short a time-span, particularly considering the great response from the Federal Government in the aftermath of the storm, for this to be even remotely accurate.
And it’s because Trump is bold enough and smart enough to challenge this number that the Left attacks him, saying he is challenging this “without evidence”. Well, the number itself was presented without evidence and the MSM ran with it as though it’s the gospel!
Not to mention there are a lot of other estimates that have the death tolls going well over the 4,000s. So it’s clear that the Left is really trying to make a mountain out of this more-than-likely molehill.
Now, that’s not to say that we shouldn’t dismiss the hurricane’s devastation on the people of Puerto Rico. It destroyed homes, killed dozens according to official estimates (and likely more at this point, though still less than that 3,000) and left Puerto Rico in shambles. They need help and they should be receiving it. The problem comes with the fact that Puerto Rico is basically run by socialists, with one of its cities’ mayors being under FBI investigation over corruption, and Puerto Rico was basically already in dire need of help before the hurricane due to a debt crisis over recent years. People in Puerto Rico were already getting screwed by their government before the hurricane.
And taking into consideration the fact that 20,000 pallets of water bottles are sitting on an airport tarmac, that raises some level of suspicion regarding the local government. Why not distribute those water bottles if things are so incredibly dire? I’m not disputing that things are dire, but if anyone wants to put blame on anyone, it would have to go to whoever was responsible for delivering those water bottles, not Trump’s administration.
Not that any of these things will matter to the Left. If they can successfully blame Trump for Maria (they’re already trying to blame him for Florence) then they have some ammunition to use for the midterms. It doesn’t matter that the number is without evidence. It doesn’t matter that even Puerto Rico’s governor initially praised Trump over his response and effectiveness. It doesn’t matter that there are tons of undistributed water bottles in an airport tarmac in Puerto Rico. A death toll of 3,000 puts Bush’s Katrina death toll to shame and we all know how effective the Left was regarding that storm.
The interesting thing is that I doubt this will do much to help the Democrats down the line. Those who were already planning to vote Republican likely won’t just accept what the fake news media says and what the Left tells them. Those who were already planning to vote Democrat are already fairly energized, but that won’t matter if Republican voters are energized themselves.
But that’s to be talked about when we come closer to November.
The point I want to make with this article is that the Left’s purpose in using this number is to make Maria Trump’s Katrina. The problem the Left faces here is that Trump won’t sit quietly while the Left berates him over it. He always fights back, as he’s clearly doing now. And as we have seen plenty of times, Trump seems to be right while the Left is wrong (and lying).
Democrats only tend to do well when they can make Republicans submit. If Trump can successfully push back against this number, which will likely be difficult even if we all know it’s fake, then that obliterates the Left’s best weapon as of this moment.
I say it will be difficult even if we all know the number is fake because feelings don’t care about your facts when it comes to the Left. 3,000 is a big number that will trigger an emotional response. The Left, the media, the Democrats and Democrat voters won’t care that the numbers are presented without evidence and are not factually accurate. They care that the number is big and that they can make the connection to Trump, somehow.
Not to the fact that Puerto Rico, under socialism, was already a “s**thole” and that Puerto Ricans are being denied the water they need by someone within the local government, but the fact that Trump is currently POTUS.
Do you think this number would’ve ever come up if Hillary were POTUS? Of course not. The tally would likely be around the official estimates and, naturally, slightly increasing over time. But never to those levels under a Democrat President.
This death toll serves the same purpose as climate change in general: attack Trump and Republicans over supposed inaction. Never mind that Trump did his part in assisting Puerto Rico.
Again, at the end of the day, I doubt this will have a tremendous impact on the midterm elections. I’ve already made up my mind that I’ll vote for every Republican candidate on the ballot in my state. Even if they’re not great or not actual conservatives, it’s better to deal with these people than risk everything being thrown away under a Democrat majority in either or both chambers of Congress just because they don’t know how to deal with losing.
