There are times when I think I understand what the Left is trying to say and do, and there are times that I just can’t. This is one of those times, as I have no idea how anyone could be stupid enough to report this the way CBS News is currently doing.
According to CBS News, “a photo of fire department recruits possibly using a racist hand gesture is being investigated by District of Columbia Fire and Emergency Medical Services… [The photo] shows some recruits in a group picture flashing a possible ‘white power’ hand gesture, but the gesture is similar to the ‘OK’ hand sign.”
CBS News’ D.C. affiliate WUSA-TV tried to explain that “the gesture in the photo might be seen as ‘WP’, for ‘White Power’, since extending three fingers is a possible ‘W’ and the ‘circle’ coming off an arm is a possible ‘P’ – ‘WP’”.
DC Fire and EMS also told WUSA that its investigation could “include interviews of everyone in the picture.”
Sometimes, the sheer stupidity of the Left is mind-boggling. We literally had this conversation a month or so ago regarding West Point graduates DOING THE EXACT SAME HAND SIGNALS and some idiots also got all uppity about that too for no real reason, only to try and smear people as “racist”.
And here is where I stand at a cross-roads. I am actually not sure if this is utter stupidity on the part of the fake news media, particularly CBS News, or if they really are just making a concerted effort to make the “OK” hand signal and the circle game a symbol of “white power” or racism. I really don’t know if this idiocy is deliberate or accidental, but by God, it’s still insane regardless of the purpose.
Do we REALLY have to have this conversation again? Do we really have to look back at EVERYONE who has made the “OK” hand symbol? Do I really have to bring up the pictures of Obama, Pelosi, the Clintons, AOC and Bill de Blasio again? Or do I now have to bring up pictures of Chuck Schumer, Oprah Winfrey, Beyonce, Elizabeth Warren and Pope Francis making the same exact hand sign? Do I have to make a case as to why each of them isn’t a racist for making this hand sign (though they are racists for other reasons)?
It’s actual insanity that these idiots would report this as though it’s a major story full of controversy WHEN WE DID THIS WHOLE ROUTINE A LITTLE OVER A MONTH AGO! Is it that they just really want to make that hand sign “racist” because Trump often makes that hand sign? Is it yet another example of the Left trying to find fault and guilt where none lies, trying to be offended by something that no one in their right mind would get offended by?
And as with the last time I covered this insanity, the people in the picture aren’t even making the ok hand sign anyway! Not that it would make any difference, as the hand sign is not racist, but still. As with the last time, the people in the picture are playing the circle game.
This is something CBS News themselves point out at the end of their story (but of course, not before trying to smear these recruits as racists because otherwise, there’d be no point in reporting this):
“The investigation comes about a month after military officials said hand gestures flashed by West Point cadets and Naval Academy midshipmen during the televised Army-Navy football game weren’t racist signals. Officials said the students were participating in a ‘circle game’ in which someone flashes an upside-down OK sign below the waist and punches anyone who looks at it.”
A couple of points here. First, I’m glad that these idiots remember the last time the fake news media tried to do this. At least, their mental capacity isn’t so pathetic as to have forgotten.
Second, I cannot commend these idiots any more than that precisely BECAUSE they remember the last time this b.s. was pulled and still tried to pull it again. This is what leads me to believe that it wasn’t an idiotic mistake, but that they REALLY want to make the ok hand signal and circle game symbols of white supremacy.
Despite the stupidity of it all, they really want to try and paint anyone who makes those hand signs as “racists”. They view dissenters as Nazis and Nazis are supposed to make particular signs with their hands/arms. In today’s age, hardly anyone would be willing to make the Nazi gesture anymore, so the media has to paint people who make a particular hand sign, such as “OK”, as people who are racists and deserve the public’s scorn.
No one in their right mind would think that those hand signs are symbols of white supremacy. Virtually EVERYONE has made that hand sign at one point or another in their lives. It’s why there are so many pictures of various different politicians, celebrities, and just random people making that hand sign: it’s NORMAL.
But one final point I would actually like to make about the fake news that is CBS is how scummy they are. They fully acknowledge the fact that it’s just the circle game and even go out of their way to explain the rules of the game: you flash that sign below the waist and whoever sees it, you can punch. They KNOW that this isn’t about race and yet, make it their mission to smear anyone who does this as a “white supremacist”.
THEY KNOW that this is nothing more than a harmless game from the early 2000s that has ZERO ties to race or anything of the sort, but they just have to try and make this country look like it’s filled with racists. That’s the larger agenda anyway. In their minds, this country is irreparably racist to its core. It was founded by racists, for racists and a racist currently sits in the White House. That is the sort mindset these people have and the sort of outlook they have on this country. But since this country ISN’T inherently racist to its core, they have to make up some serious b.s.
Want a secure border? You’re a racist. You’re white and have an opinion that doesn’t coincide with the Left? You’re racist. You want people to be able to protect themselves? You’re racist. You support Israel and the Jewish people? You’re racist. You doubt the literally incredible story of Jussie Smollett being assaulted by MAGA people who shouted “this is MAGA country” in Chicago during 7° weather? You’re racist. You think black people shouldn’t kill their own children? You’re racist. You make the OK hand sign or play the circle game? You’re racist.
Labelling people as racists is a SPORT to these people. Anyone and everyone the Left targets is a racist and the only way to be forgiven for that is to vote straight blue and donate to and support Democrats during elections.
I’m pretty sure I don’t need to explain why everything about this is utter bullcrap.
Just like I said when the media tried to smear the West Point graduates: this is why no one likes the media.

Social media was abuzz earlier this week shortly following the seventh Democrat debate and the last one before the Iowa caucuses were set to begin due to how CNN treated Crazy Bernie with some of the questions asked.
There was one particular moment during the Democrat debates that had Bernie supporters actually agreeing with Trump supporters that CNN is garbage. But this moment likely was set up from the start of the week.
You see, back on Monday, CNN reported that Sen. Bernie Sanders told Sen. Elizabeth Warren during a private 2018 dinner where it was just the two of them that he didn’t think a woman could win the presidency. CNN’s source? Their usual b.s. of “anonymous sources”.
Of course, Bernie denied such an accusation and again did so during the debate when he was asked if he did actually say that to Elizabeth Warren:
“CNN reported yesterday and Senator Warren confirmed in a statement that in 2018, you told her that you did not believe a woman could win the presidential election. Why did you say that?” asked debate moderator Abby Phillips.
“Well, as a matter of fact, I didn’t say it. And I don’t want to waste a whole lot of time on this, because this is what Donald Trump and maybe some of the media want. Anybody [who] knows me knows that it’s incomprehensible that I would think that a woman cannot be president of the United States. Go to YouTube today. There’s a video of me 30 years ago talking about how a woman could become president of the United States. In 2015, I deferred, in fact, to Sen. Warren. There was a movement to draft Sen. Warren to run for president. And you know what… [I] stayed back. Sen. Warren decided not to run, and I… did run afterwards. Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by 3 million votes. How could anybody in a million years not believe that a woman could become president of the United States?”
I do not like Bernie whatsoever and thoroughly believe that all of his ideas would destroy this country almost immediately. Funny enough, in a rare moment of journalistic integrity (at least, somewhat), a couple of chyrons from CNN during the debate read: “Sanders’ proposals would double federal spending over a decade; how will he avoid bankrupting the country?” and “Does Sanders owe voters an explanation of how much his health care plan will cost them and the country?” These are the types of questions journalists NEVER are supposed to ask Democrats, but they did for Bernie (although they didn’t ask the same of Warren, who is pretty well-known for stealing Bernie’s terrible ideas).
However, these chyrons, as well as another one that read: “Warren supports a new trade deal with Mexico and Canada; why is Sanders’ opposition to it wrong?”, lead us to believe that the fix is in for Bernie and that CNN is sidling up to Warren. But none of these compare to the actual moment during the debate when they blatantly took Warren’s side.
Immediately following Bernie’s answer, Abby Phillips said: “So Sen. Sanders, I do want to be clear here, you’re saying that you never told Sen. Warren that a woman could not win the election?” Bernie, of course, said: “that is correct.”
But then, Phillips turned to Warren and asked: “Sen. Warren, what did you think when Sen. Sanders told you that a woman could not win the election?”
The question wasn’t “Did Bernie tell you what you said he told you?” It wasn’t “Do you have any proof that he said what you accuse him of saying?” They just assumed that Bernie was lying and that the burden of proof fell on Bernie, not Warren, which is, of course, ridiculous as one cannot prove something didn’t happen, only that it did. One cannot outright prove that Bernie didn’t say something, only that he did, and the burden of proof falls on Warren.
Of course, this led to many people both on the Left (at least those who support Bernie) and the Right to call out CNN for their blatant bias.
Andrew Egger tweeted: “It’s WILD that CNN didn’t ask Warren to positively state that Bernie told her ‘a woman can’t win,’ seconds after he positively denied that it happened. Just ‘what did you think when he said that to you?’ Absolute malpractice.”
Saagar Enjeti from The Hill tweeted: “Seriously it is outrageous that CNN would take Warren’s accusation as a statement of fact.”
Tim Carney from the Washington Examiner said: “Bernie was mistreated by CNN.”
Reason magazine senior editor Robby Soave said: “It was a very telling moment when Bernie said he didn’t say a woman couldn’t win and then in the very next moment, the moderator just asserted that he had.”
Of course, I have my own opinions regarding this. Bernie absolutely got mistreated by CNN there. He was accused of saying something, is being lied about it, smeared about it, and he is being indicted in the court of public opinion by at least Warren supporters and others in the media. Presumption of innocence is not being granted to him by some people. In other words, he received the Brett Kavanaugh treatment from CNN.
But then again, Brett Kavanaugh is also the reason I don’t particularly feel bad for Bernie. Sure, he was wronged by CNN, but he took Dr. Ford’s side entirely when it came to the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings.
Back when Kavanaugh was being confirmed by the Senate, various senators got the chance to weigh in and give their two cents on it. This is what Bernie said:
“I listened to Dr. Ford, and I listened to Judge Kavanaugh. I believe Dr. Ford. Brett Kavanaugh does not belong on the Supreme Court. If Judge Kavanaugh wants to clear his name on these very serious charges he should immediately demand a thorough FBI investigation. If not, the Senate should reject his nomination.”
Dr. Ford provided zero evidence and the witnesses that she named either did not actually witness anything, had no recollection of anything, or adamantly CONTRADICTED Ford’s testaments. There wasn’t a single shred of evidence that Brett Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her or any of the other women that the Democrats called up to accuse him and smear him. His reputation was forever ruined from that day and even now, people believe Dr. Ford and the other accusers, despite the total lack of evidence.
Bernie got a SMALL TASTE of that injustice. Warren didn’t accuse him of sexual assault. CNN and the other propaganda organizations aren’t running hit piece after hit piece smearing Bernie as a serial sexual offender. His political future (short as it might be) is not heavily threatened by these accusations of sexism. Yes, he was wronged by CNN for assuming he said something when there is no proof he did, but Bernie was on the same side as them just a little over a year ago.
He did not presume Kavanaugh’s innocence and believed the statements of an obviously trained Democrat operative who provided zero proof, only a seemingly sympathetic crying face and seemingly innocent manner of speech. That wench tried to ruin a man’s entire LIFE just because she perceived him to be a threat to Roe v. Wade and Bernie took her side wholeheartedly.
CNN absolutely sucks. They are garbage. The hashtag “CNNisTrash” was trending on Twitter following that moment and for good reason: it’s the truth. This “news” organization recently settled with a 17-year-old because they lied about him being a racist in an attempt to ruin the kid’s life just because he supports Trump. For the first two and a half years of Trump’s presidency, CNN ran story after story of nothing but lies and deception about Russian collusion, assuming Trump colluded with Russia to steal the election away from Hillary and reporting that as though it was truth.
CNN is a garbage propaganda organization with zero truth in anything they report. But I do not feel bad for Bernie at all. This is what happens when truth and justice is overtaken by political agendas. There wasn’t one bit of evidence to suggest Kavanaugh did what he did to any of the women who accused him of sexual assault. Not one could provide corroborating evidence or witnesses to back up their claims. And yet, for a few months, the media made sure to forever ruin an innocent man’s reputation and life, like they tried to do with Clarence Thomas, just because he was a political enemy. Bernie played a part, even if a small one, in presuming guilt rather than innocence despite all the evidence AGAINST the accusers’ testimonies.
Bernie got a small taste of what it feels like to be on the receiving end when idiots say “believe all women”. There is no reason to believe someone who, for decades, lied about her heritage to get an advantage and constantly lies about virtually every aspect of her life, policies etc. There is no reason to believe this simply due to the lack of evidence that Bernie said what he is accused of having said. But there was also never a reason to believe any of the Kavanaugh accusers, but Bernie abandoned truth and reason for political points and convenience.
If you ask me, he got only a little bit of what he actually deserves. Still, I am amused at the fact that Democrats might be trying to screw Bernie again. Only makes Trump’s win all the easier come November.

We are roughly a week into the new decade, but it appears that the phoniness and the b.s. of the last decade will carry over into this one (not that that’s at all an unexpected development). While I could talk at length about the fake news media’s literal mourning over the death of Soleimani to tell you how much these people suck, let’s look at a different story entirely: the Australian bushfires.
Much of the Australian country/continent is on fire, with millions upon millions of acres and animals being affected by this horrible tragedy. Without missing a beat, the Left has sought to make this entire story about climate change, despite the fact that the fires were set by arsonists. In fact, according to New South Wales Police Force, 24 people have been charged with deliberately starting bushfires and 183 total people currently face legal action in the state.
But while there is plenty to talk about regarding this and how it makes zero sense to blame climate change for this (it would make zero sense to blame climate change even if this wasn’t arson), I would like to focus particularly on a graphic that ABC News shared on Twitter, for which they got absolutely destroyed.
ABC News tweeted out the above picture. As you can see, it is a map of Australia superimposed onto the United States mainland to show people roughly how big the fires are. But of course, since this is a fake news organization we are talking about, this is far from the truth.
The map makes it look like the fire would cover roughly a third of our own country, with many states being shown to be mostly or completely on fire. This, of course, was meant to scare people into believing Australia is in serious trouble (not saying it isn’t, as massive fires are always trouble, but it’s not because of climate change and the fires are nowhere near that massive) and that action must be taken, particularly action against climate change, and particularly action regarding passing legislation that will take people’s rights and freedoms away because that somehow helps the planet.
All a bunch of b.s. that even the actual ARTICLE FROM ABC NEWS WHERE YOU FIND THAT GRAPHIC refutes. From ABC News: “The raging fires in Australia have burned over 12.35 million acres of land – with at least 24 people killed and more than 2,000 homes destroyed by the blazes, officials said. The size of the fires across the country are twice as large as the state of Maryland and bigger than several other states, including Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and New Jersey.”
Now, I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sure that “twice as large as the state of Maryland” does not equal to nearly the entire country or even a third of it, as the graphic shows. The square mileage of Australia is 2.97 million square miles, which is roughly 78% of the U.S. (3.79 square miles). Maryland is only 12,407 square miles, so the fire would have to be 24,814 square miles. Still huge, no doubt, but nowhere close to what ABC News would want us to believe. In fact, the size of the fire is roughly only 1% of the country. As I said, that is big, but not quite as big as the fire on ABC News’ pants right now.
Again, I’m not outright trying to downplay the situation in Australia and say that it’s practically not important or not a big deal, because it is. 24 people were arrested and charged with arson for this, and in total, 183 people face some sort of legal action in the state because of these fires. 53 people are facing legal action for failing to comply with the state’s fire ban and another 47 people have faced some legal action for discarding lit cigarettes or matches on the land.
But as one can clearly tell, this is not a matter of climate change in the least and it doesn’t help the Left’s cause to so causally and blatantly lie about the size of the fires (or at least, it shouldn’t, considering just READING the actual piece will contradict the fake graphic). In fact, these bushfires are not even particularly unique. Breitbart News has reported in the past: “The link between arsonists and the deadly fires that devastate Australia every summer is well known and documented, with the rate of deliberately lit fires escalating rapidly during the school holiday period.”
In other words, Australian bushfires are very common, particularly during the time when dumb, young people are out of school, which is why charges can vary “from cautions through to criminal charges” according to NSW police and intentionally setting fire to bushes can result in up to 21 years in prison. This happens practically every single year, with this one being noteworthy in how bad it is, and even then, this fire is overhyped. Worse fires have been recorded, with one having occurred in 1939, when 2 million hectares were burnt to ash in New Zealand. What’s more, it’s not even like these are the hottest temperatures that Australia has ever recorded. The summer of 1938-39 was hotter and the hottest temperature recorded in the country, according to an Australian scientist writing about this very topic.
Climate change cannot even begin to be blamed here, but you and I both know that the Left will absolutely try their hardest. If they can blame a black man killing or attacking Jews on white supremacy, they can blame this on climate change because that is how pathetic these people are.
But as far as ABC News goes, again, this doesn’t really surprise me in the least. Fearmongering is par for the course for these people when it comes to climate change. They have to convince their audience, and even themselves, that the entire world is literally on fire despite the very clear evidence against that, or they have no agenda to push.
Make this reason #4782 why the fake news media is not about journalism but about propagandism.

Back in late October, the Trump administration greenlit an operation to kill the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, which resulted in a raid on his compound and the terrorist to blow himself up (alongside three of his children) to avoid being killed or arrested by U.S. forces. Following this raid, the Left went into a fit because we killed the leader of ISIS, proving even more that they are adamantly against the United States.
In early January of 2020, following an attack on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad, Iraq, which was orchestrated by Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, an Iranian general who once visited the Obama White House and has killed hundreds, if not thousands, of Americans, the United States used an MQ-9 Reaper drone to fire missiles at a convoy of terrorists leaving Baghdad International Airport. This strike not only killed dozens of terrorists, but it has been confirmed now by State Department officials that one of the deaths was the aforementioned general Soleimani.
Retired Lt. Col. James Carafano said: “The reported deaths of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani and the Iraqi commander of the militia that killed an American last week was a bold and decisive military action made possible by excellent intelligence and the courage of America’s service members. His death is a huge loss for Iran’s regime and its Iraqi proxies, and a major operational and psychological victory for the United States.”
Phillip Smyth, an expert on Iran-controlled Shia militias and the Middle East at the Washington Institute said: “This is a major blow. I would argue that this is probably the most major decapitation strike the United States has ever carried out… This is a man who controlled a transnational foreign legion that was controlling governments in numerous different countries… He had a hell of a lot of power and a hell of a lot of control. You have to be a strong leader in order to get these people to work with you, know how and when to play them off one another, and also know which Iranians do I need within the IRGC-QF (Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force, a designated terrorist organization), which Lebanese do I need which, Iraqis do I need… that’s not something you can just pick up at a local five and dime. It takes decades of experience.”
Other military experts agreed that the killing of Soleimani was more significant than bin Laden or al-Baghdadi.
The Pentagon said in a statement: “General Soleimani was actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the nation. This strike was aimed at deterring future Iranian attack plans. The United States will continue to take all necessary action to protect our people and our interests wherever they are around the world.”
The Pentagon also said that Soleimani had orchestrated numerous attacks on U.S.-led coalition bases in Iraq over the last few months, including an attack on December 27th, which killed an American contractor and wounded U.S. servicemembers as well as Iraqi personnel.
Carafano also said: “The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps… led by Suleimani, was responsible for the deaths of more than 600 Americans in Iraq between 2003-2011, and countless more injured. He was a chief architect behind Iran’s continuing reign of terror in the region. This strike against one of the world’s most odious terrorists is no different than the mission which took out Osama bin Laden – it is, in fact, even more justifiable since he was in a foreign country directing terrorist attacks against Americans.”
Suffice to say that Soleimani was an evil piece of crap and no one but the bad guys would miss him. Enter the American Left, the fake news media and even a Hollywood elite being adamantly against this operation to kill a top enemy of the United States.
Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) complained on Twitter: “Soleimani was an enemy of the United States. That’s not a question. The question is this – as reports suggest, did America just assassinate, without any congressional authorization, the second most powerful person in Iran, knowingly setting off a potential massive regional war?”
A couple of things to say about this. First, I don’t remember Democrats complaining when Obama didn’t notify them that we would be killing bin Laden. That’s because the Commander-in-Chief does not need to notify Congress that he is going to kill a terrorist. These idiots also complained that Trump didn’t notify them that he was killing Baghdadi. The reason being that he didn’t want the secret of the operation being spread, potentially saving Baghdadi and putting American servicemembers’ lives in danger. Granted, we used a drone instead of armed forces this time around, but we know just how partisan these people are. They would’ve blabbed about targeting Soleimani in an effort to save his life and keep Trump from scoring any political victory.
How do I know these people are partisan hacks? Aside from EVERYTHING they’ve done over the past few years, look at how these people are reacting to these news. Instead of being elated that an objectively EVIL guy is dead, they all let their Trump Derangement Syndrome take over and are DEFENDING Iran.
Just three days ago, and moving on to the second point I wanted to make, Sen. Chris Murphy also tweeted the following regarding the attack on our embassy: “The attack on our embassy in Baghdad is horrifying but predictable. Trump has rendered America impotent in the Middle East. No one fears us, no one listens to us. America has been reduced to huddling in safe rooms, hoping the bad guys will go away. What a disgrace.”
Three days ago, Murphy was complaining that we weren’t doing anything and claimed that America was “impotent” in the Middle East because of Trump (totally ignoring the fact that Benghazi was attacked under Obama’s watch and he did nothing to help there). Fast-forward three days and now he’s complaining about taking action against THE GUY WHO ORCHESTRATED THE ATTACK ON THE EMBASSY?!
Not that I find this the least bit surprising. They will attack Trump regardless of what he does. He doesn’t do something against terrorists who attacked our embassy? “Trump is weak”. He does something against terrorists who attacked our embassy? “Trump just started World War III”. It’s all a load of b.s. and no one in their right mind would take these people seriously for even a second.
But moving on to the other anti-American traitors, we find none other than the Washington Post, the official terrorist mourning organization, reporting: “Breaking news: Airstrike at Baghdad airport kills Iran’s most revered military leader, Qasem Soleimani, Iraqi state television reports.”
Don’t know if this quite beats “austere religious scholar” but it’s an embarrassment that it can come so close. Soleimani, as previously explained, was not Iran’s most “revered military leader”. He was a terrorist piece of garbage responsible for the deaths of hundreds of servicemembers and possibly thousands of Americans. And the only ones that “revered” the demon were people within the terrorist regime.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo shared a video on Twitter of Iraqis “dancing on the street for freedom; thankful that General Soleimani is no more.” And why would they be happy at Soleimani’s death? Because he was also the guy responsible for the deaths and kidnappings of protesters that had been troubling the terrorist regime for years in the neighboring country (reportedly, he caused the deaths of upwards of 500 people and injured another 20,000 protesters). We killed the guy who helped oppress the people of IRAQ and the people of Iraq are thankful.
Of course, this doesn’t stop the Left from further trying to paint Trump as a “warmonger” who just ignited the third World War and are cowering at what Iran might do in retaliation (because they were clearly oh, so peaceful before we killed Soleimani).
Despite the very clear evidence that Soleimani was a terrorist and that this was an attack in response to him ORCHESTRATING an attack on OUR embassy, the Left says that this is an act of war. By no means. This is an act of self-defense as a result of that attack on our embassy. It is an act of retribution for the THOUSANDS of American, not to mention Iranian and Iraqi lives, that he helped to take. It is an act of strength to show the terrorist regime that Obama is not president anymore and they can’t get away with whatever they want anymore.
This will not lead to World War III. I doubt this will even lead to full-blown war against Iran. Richard Engel said that “Iranians will consider US killing Soleimani an act of war. A proxy war could erupt. Likely in Iraq, but also a danger in Lebanon and Israel. This is a big escalation.” To which I say: Soleimani was already orchestrating numerous proxy wars in the region anyway. I don’t care if they consider this an act of war or an act of crapping on their sandwich; they will say whatever they want to justify further actions (and the media will be delighted by such actions). At most, this would cause a proxy war, but nothing more severe than that. If Iran actually had the means to fight us in a war, there’d be nothing stopping them from doing so. Unlike ISIS or al-Qaeda terrorists, Iran can’t go into hiding.
Now, Leftists could say: “See? This will only make things worse. This will cause the Iranians to attack us.” They were already attacking us and they have been FOR DECADES. It’s not like Trump attacked the Iranians unprovoked. They have been pulling crap against us, plotting and funding terrorist acts against us for decades at this point, pretty much since the Mullahs took over in 1979. Killing Soleimani will help deter future terrorist acts simply due to how many he was responsible for and was in the process of planning.
But what is perhaps the worst part of the Left’s clear betrayal of this country was something that actress Rose McGowan tweeted:
“Dear Iran, the USA has disrespected your country, your flag, your people. 52% of us humbly apologize. We want peace with your nation. We are being held hostage by a terrorist regime. We do not know how to escape. Please do not kill us.” She also tweeted a gif of what appears to be an Iranian flag, but edited to have a sun emoji and a lion emoji in the middle part, for some reason.
But regardless of that strange gif, it is pretty clear how spineless the Left is. Thankfully, McGowan does not represent the U.S. and the VAST MAJORITY of Americans are happy that a terrorist is dead. One Twitter user, who claims to be Iranian, replied to her: “I’m Iranian by birth. Iranians are happy. Do you realize that this guy was [a] psychopath? Part of a group that tortured, raped, sodomized its own citizens? Do you have any f***ing clue or do you just want attention? Soleimani makes Harvey Weinstein look like a saint. Let that sink!”
I would assume McGowan wants as much attention as Jane Fonda did by siding with the Vietcongs. Back then, it was Hanoi Jane. Today, we have Tehran McGowan, it seems. These idiot Leftists have zero clue what they are talking about and most likely have never even heard of Soleimani before recently, otherwise, they really wouldn’t be calling Trump’s administration the “terrorist regime” here.
The Left does not support the United States. They hate it when we succeed. They hate it when we win at any capacity. They think we should be groveling on the ground, begging for other countries’ “forgiveness” for our “past sins” and “transgressions”. If you need any more proof that the Left hates this country, look at what they are doing right this moment.

This Is Why No One Likes The Media: MSM Tries To Defame Cadets Playing “Circle Game” As White Supremacists
According to a recent Gallup poll, only 41% of Americans trust the Mass Media (newspapers, TV, radio, etc.). And over the weekend, a prime example of exactly why came up.
On Saturday, the football teams for America’s Army and Navy met to play one another in an intense rivalry game; a game that was notably visited by our Commander-in-Chief President Donald J. Trump, who was met with loud cheers. But one of the biggest takeaways from the game, at least in the mind of the media, is the actions of cadets, who, upon realizing that a TV camera was pointing his way, made the “Circle Game” gesture on the shoulder of another cadet, who briefly looked at it and then looked away, sort of awkwardly grinning afterwards because he knew exactly what that gesture was and why he needed to avert his gaze (other cadets also made the gesture at different times).
However, many Leftist activists and the fake news media are seemingly completely unaware of the game (or act like it, at least) and thought the gesture was not the “Circle Game” gesture, but rather, a White Power or White Supremacy gesture.
Mike Brehm from USA Today Sports reported: “Questions erupted during the Army-Navy game in Philadelphia when students appeared to make the White Power hand symbol during a pregame broadcast. Spokespersons from the U.S. Military Academy and the U.S. Naval Academy told USA Today Sports they have been made aware of the issue – which blossomed on social media as the game wore on – and the schools are looking into it.”
Note all the b.s. that we find in that paragraph alone.
First of all, he calls it “the White Power hand symbol” as though it’s a hand sign that pretty much everyone understands is supposed to mean that when the VAST majority of people are grounded in reality and know that that’s not a “white power” hand symbol. But he reports it as though that’s exactly what it is and everyone interprets it to mean what he says it is. It’s nothing but fake news and it’s pretty clear how b.s. this is.
Secondly, they actually got the U.S. Army and Navy academies to investigate this as though it’s an “issue”, as Brehm reports. It’s not an issue worth of an investigation (that will likely cost taxpayer dollars). It’s not an issue at all! It’s just an academy cadet playing the “Circle Game” from the early 2000s.
For those of you who might not know, the Circle Game is a game where you make a hand gesture like the one the cadet made but you have to make that gesture below the waist. If you catch someone looking at the gesture below the waist, you get to hit them on the shoulder as hard as you want. It’s a dumb game people (mostly boys) would play back in the early 2000s.
There was this show I used to watch and really like from the early-to-mid 2000s called “Malcolm in the Middle.” Some of you may have watched it as well. In one of the episodes, Malcolm’s family is invited to dinner to a restaurant by Stevie’s family, a friend of Malcolm’s. One of the subplots of the episode revolves around Malcolm’s older and bully brother Reese playing the circle game, particularly with Stevie, who viewers of the show know is pretty physically weak and fragile.
In fact, if you look up this particular episode (titled “Dinner Out”) and you go to the Fandom Wiki page for the episode, you find the following picture:
Would you say that Malcolm, who is supposed to be one of the most grounded (pun not intended) characters in the show, is making a “white power” hand gesture? Would you say that he is indicating to the audience that he is secretly a “white supremacist”? OF COURSE NOT! IT’S JUST A DUMB GAME FROM THE EARLY 2000s!
No one who is in their right mind, certainly no one who is even remotely truthful, would consider that hand gesture to be a racist one.
And yet, you have dishonest idiots like Mike Brehm getting PAID to write idiotic reports like this as though it’s a national tragedy and an embarrassment. Of course, it doesn’t end there either.
Far-Left activists piled on, calling the gesture (and, in turn, the cadets) racist and white supremacist and trying to tie that in with the fact that President Trump was there.
One Leftist activist tweeted: “As an American, as a Navy Dad, as a decent human being… you hate to see racist West Point cadets emboldened by the presence of the Racist-in-Chief at an Army-Navy Game to throw up the “White Power” sign on national TV. Disgusting.”
Not surprising at all that this guy hates Trump and calls him a racist. The guy is an idiot himself. He parrots the idea that the CIRCLE GAME is a “white power” sign. It’s utterly ridiculous and completely dishonest, but hey, I don’t expect anything less from the Left.
Thankfully, PLENTY of people pushed back against the insane narrative and protected the innocent cadet.
Former senior White House adviser Cliff Sims wrote: “Here we go again. This time it’s [Mike Brehm] of [USA Today Sports] trying to ruin the lives of cadets for playing the circle game, because in some alternate reality they just MUST be white supremacists. At some point someone’s gotta bring a defamation case against these lunatics.”
Sports analyst Clay Travis also pushed back against the insanity: “Good lord. They were playing the circle game. America has gone insane.”
Not America, Clay, just the Left who will find any and all excuses to be offended. They live in a perpetual state of anger and scorn and hatred, so they must push it on other people and demand they be as angry, scornful and hateful as they are.
Curt Schilling wrote: “This is just idiotic. It’s a bunch of guys playing the circle game about 10 years after their friends all stopped. But ya, let’s make it out to be racist, since everything else you see and hear is as well.”
Attorney Kurt Schlichter issued a warning to those who would defame these cadets: “This is a warning to the media… If you Covington the cadets, you will be held accountable in court in front of a jury and not in your comfortable, sympathetic blue enclave venue. Do not participate in the defamation of American heroes.” He then went on to tag a few lawyers who would be able to help the cadet if he wishes to legally fight back against the libel.
Others also made the point that I myself am about to make: even if it wasn’t clearly the circle game, making the “ok” hand symbol is also not racist.
Back in January of this year, Kathy Griffin tried to libel Covington basketball players for making what she considered “racist” hand gestures… they were the symbol for celebrating a successful three-pointer by one of their teammates.
But even if you also took out the context of basketball, that symbol is NOT a symbol of white supremacy and it’s utterly ridiculous to suggest so.
Look at the following people making the “ok” hand gesture:
What person in his right mind would suggest that OBAMA, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bill de Blasio are throwing up “white power” signs? There’s no denying these people are racist, but one would not claim that they are white supremacists because of the gesture alone.
It is utterly ridiculous to suggest such a thing, and yet, these Left-wing reporters and activists, in all their shared idiocy, attempt to libel cadets as being racists and throwing up secretive “white power” hand gestures.
It’s for crap like this, and for crap like the Covington case that Schlichter referenced, that so few people trust or like the media. They are an utter disgrace to the very profession they claim to be a part of. They are not journalists; they are propagandists using the power of the free press. They can claim whatever they want with zero repercussions, regardless of the sort of damage it causes to a person’s character or life.
The media tried to ruin a Christian, Trump-supporting HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT’S LIFE AND FUTURE and they just tried something fairly similar with a cadet of a military academy.
THAT is what is disgusting about it and I sincerely hope that the cadet and whoever else gets targeted for this nonsense sues the heck out of these “news” people and organizations that publish such damaging b.s. Mike Brehn needs to be held accountable for such reckless reporting and libel, as well as all other “journalists” that do this.

NYT: FBI Didn’t Spy On Trump, They Just Had Informants Secretly Ask About Trump-Russia Under False Pretenses
Imagine you are in a courtroom, hearing a defense attorney in a murder trial arguing to the judge that his client did not actually commit the murder despite all the evidence clearly pointing to him as being guilty. Imagine the defense attorney then attempts to argue the definition of “murder” and says: “Your Honor, my client did not murder the victim; he simply un-alived her without her consent.”
You would think that’s a pretty stupid argument, correct? And yet, that’s the sort of argument the New York Times tried to make recently about the FBI spying on the Trump campaign in 2016.
The NYT ran a piece where they attempted to downplay what will be in the Inspector General’s report regarding Obama-era FISA abuses and FBI spying into the Trump campaign before the 2016 presidential election.
Of course, the NYT doesn’t have the IG report yet because it will be released on December 9th. So what is their source of information? “People familiar with a draft” of the report aka anonymous sources that may or may not exist.
Here is a chunk of what the NYT wrote:
“The Justice Department’s inspector general found no evidence that the F.B.I. attempted to place undercover agents or informants inside Donald J. Trump’s campaign in 2016 as agents investigated whether his associates conspired with Russia’s election interference operation, people familiar with a draft of the inspector general’s report said.”
“… The finding also contradicts some of the most inflammatory accusations hurled by Mr. Trump and his supporters, who alleged not only that F.B.I. officials spied on the Trump campaign but also at one point that former President Barack Obama had ordered Mr. Trump’s phones tapped. The startling accusation generated headlines but Mr. Trump never backed it up.”
“The finding is one of several by Mr. Horowitz that undercuts conservatives’ claims that the F.B.I. acted improperly in investigating several Trump associates starting in 2016. He also found that F.B.I. leaders did not take politically motivated actions in pursuing a secret wiretap on a former Trump campaign adviser, Carter Page – eavesdropping that Mr. Trump’s allies have long decried as politically motivated.”
It’s interesting that they would say that conservatives were claiming the FBI was spying on Trump, because that is also what the New York Times essentially admits later on IN THIS VERY PIECE.
Later in the piece, we read:
“The F.B.I was cognizant of being seen as interfering with a presidential campaign, and former law enforcement officials are adamant that they did not investigate the Trump campaign organization itself or target it for infiltration. But agents had to investigate the four advisers’ ties with Russia, and the people they did scrutinize all played roles in the Trump campaign.”
“Mr. Trump and his allies have pointed to some of the investigative steps the F.B.I. took as evidence of spying, though they were typical law enforcement activities. For one, agents had an informant, an academic named Stefan A. Halper, meet with Mr. Page and Mr. Papadopalous while they were affiliated with the campaign. The president decried the revelation as an ‘all time biggest political scandal’ when it emerged last year.”
“The F.B.I. did have an undercover agent who posed as Mr. Halper’s assistant during a London meeting with Mr. Papadopalous in August 2016…”
So what exactly do we have here? An outright contradiction within the NYT piece. Read the very first part I shared with you again. The NYT said earlier that the report would find that there was “no evidence” that the FBI tried to “place undercover agents or informants inside” the Trump campaign. And later on, they say that they DID place undercover agents and informants, at least to engage in conversation with members of the Trump campaign under false pretenses to discuss Trump campaign affairs and report any information discovered back to the FBI.
That’s called “SPYING”. What’s worse is that this isn’t even the first time the NYT tried something exactly like this. Back in May of 2018, they had the following piece: “F.B.I. Used Informant to Investigate Russia Ties to Campaign, Not to Spy, as Trump Claims.”
Let me go back to my original hypothetical scenario of the courtroom scene. The defense attorney (NYT) has just claimed that his client (the FBI) did not murder the victim (spy on Trump) but simply caused her life to end by his hands without her consent (used an informant to extract information from Trump campaign staffers and report back to the FBI). Do you think the defense attorney is using an even semi-decent argument? OF COURSE NOT! He’s trying to make a distinction without a difference. He’s basically saying the same thing but trying to make it mean something else entirely.
“I didn’t rob the bank, your Honor, I just forcefully made a manual withdrawal of all the money in the safe while threatening to kill people with my gun.” It’s an insanely idiotic argument, but it’s what we’ve come to expect from the New York Times. How many stories have I written myself that discuss the outright idiocy of this “news” organization? How many stories have they written that I did not write about myself that are equally as stupid?
I don’t know what the IG report will ultimately say, but if it doesn’t fully acknowledge the FBI’s egregious attempts at spying on the Trump campaign, and in particular, James Comey’s actions of using the defunct Steele dossier as a means to try and get FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign, then Horowitz messed up badly. Even by the NYT’s own admission, there were informants looking into the Trump campaign under false pretenses and trying to report back whatever they found. What the FBI did is out in the open and is, as Trump says, the all-time biggest political scandal in American history.
If this wasn’t about politics and only about possible ties to a foreign government, why didn’t the FBI look into Hillary’s ties to Russia and Ukraine? If this behavior is perfectly “normal” for law enforcement practice, why didn’t they plant a spy, oh, sorry, I mean an informant, into the Hillary campaign? With all the allegations regarding her and the Clinton Foundation’s foreign assistance, why didn’t the FBI think to look at her too, if this wasn’t about politics?
It’s not like there was any actual proof of Russian ties to the Trump campaign or the staffers themselves; just allegations. So if that was all it took, why did Hillary get a pass despite all the allegations surrounding her?
Rhetorical questions, all, as we definitely know the answer. The Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign, something Lisa Page and Peter Strzok acknowledged given their texts about the then-POTUS knowing about it and given the “insurance policy” Strzok mentioned.
No amount of mental gymnastics and word redefining will erase the fact that the FBI, under orders from Obama, spied on the Trump campaign.

Continuing the effort to try and discredit Trump’s popularity, and more importantly, legitimacy as President of the United States, multiple Leftists have tried to build the case that if you are a Trump supporter, you are in a “cult”. Not only is that flatly untrue and insulting (not that I would expect less from these people), but I believe the shoe fits on the other foot.
Recently, during a segment ironically titled “Reliable Sources”, CNN’s Brian Stelter hosted a “mental health expert” by the name of Steven Hassan, who was also pushing a book he wrote, titled: “The Cult of Trump.”
So, of course, this is nothing but objective, fact-based, non-partisan news and you have been brainwashed if you disagree. Nothing wrong with this at all.
Sarcasm aside, Hassan began: “I define a destructive cult as an authoritarian pyramid-structured group with someone at the top who claims to have total power and total wisdom, that uses deception and control of behavior, information, thoughts, and emotions to make people loyal and dependent on obedient followers.”
Already, we have plenty to discuss. Okay, say we agree with this definition. Why would this apply to Trump and not someone like, say, Obama? Because back during the Obama years, Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s son, profited tremendously from his dealings with Burisma. Yet, this didn’t come to light until recently, well after the Obamas were out of the White House.
And it’s not like this was a secret. Joe Biden is on video admitting to threatening Ukraine with withholding financial aid, something that Obama would’ve been responsible for, if Ukraine officials didn’t get rid of the prosecutor investigating Hunter.
Going even beyond just that story, let’s not forget that throughout the 8 years of Obama, he basically could do no wrong in the eyes of the fake news media. Despite all the controversies surrounding the administration, multiple people still insist that the only controversy Obama had to endure was wearing a tan suit (even though I have no idea why it even would be considered a controversy; it’s just a suit).
They will completely ignore Fast and Furious, the IRS scandal, Benghazi, Operation Choke Point (an illegal attempt at shutting down gun stores), and let’s not forget Obama used the intel community to spy on an opposing candidate and collude with foreign agents to create a fake dossier to pass it off as truth. All of these stories were swept under the rug in an effort to protect Barack Obama. Anyone who dissented was considered “racist” for “attacking an African-American president.”
Hassan further claims people who support Trump are being “fed propaganda” and are “not encouraged to think for themselves”. “Much of what they’re hearing is emotionally driven, loaded words, thought-stopping and thought-terminating clichés like ‘fake news’ or ‘built the wall’ or ‘Make America Great Again.’”
They accuse us of being fed propaganda when CNN was nothing but a Russia-conspiracy network for the past THREE YEARS until that totally flopped. Day after day, they pushed the fake conspiracy theory that Trump colluded with the Russians and yet TRUMP SUPPORTERS are the ones being fed propaganda? Not a single piece of evidence came of this investigation, with Mueller declaring in no unclear words that “the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”
This was in page 2 of volume 1 of the Special Counsel report. This is what tells us there was no Russian collusion, or at least that none could be clearly proven beyond a reasonable doubt. And if there was as vast an amount of evidence as people like those on CNN claim there was, Mueller wouldn’t have put that part into his report.
For three years, we were told that Trump colluded with Russia by the Cult News Network (might as well call them that, since by Hassan’s own definition, the fake news media falls into this category and it’s a good play at their name). We were told, time and time again, that this story was going to be the end of Trump, or another story was going to be the end of Trump, or this week was Trump’s worst week, or that week was his worst, or the walls are closing in on Trump today, or they are closing in on him tomorrow. Three years of nothing but fake news surrounding ONE topic, let alone anything else they talk about.
When you make a claim that is not true, that means you are lying. For three years, CNN has been lying about Trump-Russia collusion and continue to make up other lies as well in an effort to destroy Trump. This is the deception that makes CNN and the other fake news organizations fall into the category of “cult”, and their viewers into the category of “cult followers” or “members.” When you are repeatedly told something and believe it despite the truth, despite reality, that is cultish thinking, if not outright insanity.
I once mentioned that I got into a Twitter argument with someone who claimed that the Mueller report proved Trump colluded with Russia, despite the excerpt that I quoted earlier showing the opposite. This tells me that she either didn’t read the report and was told what was in it by someone else (cult-like) or read it and was simply left completely insane by the last few years.
This is the sort of damage the fake news media causes people, and it’s insanely rich that they would try and categorize support for Trump as cult-like behavior. Do they forget that most of Trump’s supporters are Christians? We follow Christ, and we support Trump because he also follows Christ. What reason does an actual Christian have to support any of the Satanist Democrats we see today? People who insist that murder of children, in and out of the womb, is moral; who insist that we are a fundamentally racist nation; who wish to bankrupt our country in order to “pay” for “free” healthcare for ILLEGALS, as well as a multitude of “green” programs that strip people of civil and constitutional rights in a futile “effort” to “fight” climate change. Why would any sincere Christian support such people?
We support Trump and will continue to support him so long as he doesn’t stray from what made him so popular in the first place. We didn’t vote for Trump because he was a reality TV star or because he was a successful real estate mogul or because he was particularly charismatic. We voted for him because he understood perfectly where the nation was headed and knew that we had the ability to Make America Great Again, so long as the disruptive regulations and bureaucracies got out of the way.
When we say someone is spreading “fake news”, that’s not a cliché. That’s pointing out that someone is lying about someone or something because they have biases that overshadow objective reporting. When we say “build the wall”, that’s not a cliché either. It’s a desire to secure our border, keep bad people from getting in, keep people who would take advantage of our country out of it, and ensuring that there are as few Kate Steinle cases as humanly possible. And when we say “Make America Great Again,” it’s a desire to actually bring America back to the greatness it once knew, because it had been brought down several pegs due to the Washington Establishment’s globalist ideals.
Before Trump, the President of the United States would go on apology tours for all the “injustices” that America had supposedly committed. Before Trump, we had a President of the United States who would declare “mission accomplished” extremely prematurely and would send us down the path of endless wars. Before Trump, we had a President of the United States who couldn’t keep his namesake in his pants and got impeached for perjury. Before Trump, we had a President of the United States who lied to the American people about not creating any new taxes and then turning around and creating new taxes.
Now, we are putting America First wherever we can, even despite what the Washington Establishment is trying to do in Congress and in lower courts.
To say that any of these desires is “cult-like” is nothing short of a pathetic attempt at projection. Everything Hassan said about Trump and his supporters being a “cult” can be more-so applied to the Left and to the fake news media like Brian Stelter and the rest of the Cult News Network.
It’s utter hypocrisy to claim such a thing of Trump supporters and it’s very much the reason why the fake news media is so hated. It’s not news anymore. Someone tuning in to CNN isn’t doing it to get informed on what’s happening, but to be given talking points to use on social media or at the dinner table during Thanksgiving about any given topic.
In fact, Thanksgiving was part of Stelter’s segment, as Hassan encouraged CNN viewers to “deprogram” Trump supporters during Thanksgiving. They are telling people “your Trump supporting cousin is in a cult, here’s what you should do to help them join ours-… eh, I mean, to help them escape.”
They do not believe that anyone could honestly support President Trump; that they had to be “mind controlled” or “brainwashed” in some way. Again, it’s nothing apart from total projection of what they actually are. Their message is basically: “If you do not agree with us 100% of the time regarding everything we discuss, you’re in a cult.”
So who actually is in the cult here?

With the impeachment hearings trotting out nothing for the Democrats or the fake news media to be able to stick with to attack Trump (they went from Quid Pro Quo to bribery to not letting a foreigner into the WH and are circling back to Quid Pro Quo with Sondland, but that’s not working out either), the Democrats and the fake news media are desperate to find something, ANYTHING, to try and hit Trump with, considering how poorly this impeachment sham is going for them.
In comes a U.N. report that tries to utterly tear into the Trump administration. According to the AFP, who wrote a story on the report, “more than 100,000 children are currently being held in migration-related detention in the United States, often in violation of international law, the UN said Monday.”
NPR also ran with the story, claiming that the Trump administration “is still holding more than 100,000 children in migration-related detention.”
This story was also circulated among Democrats, with U.S. Representative Grace Meng (D-NY) tweeting: “The over 100,000 kids in immigration-related custody are kids the Trump administration has separated from their families, detained in cages, & denied basic necessities & medical care. We can’t let this inhumane treatment continue at any scale.”
Certainly, words of condemnation. And she was far from alone. The Democratic Coalition shared the article and tweeted: “Our National Shame: The United Nations has condemned the United States for having the world’s highest rate of children in detention. #KeepFamiliesTogether #ShitholePresident.”
By the way, I didn’t censor that curse word so you would fully get what it is these people think of President Trump.
In any case, the DNC War Room also tweeted: “This is a disgusting result of Trump’s family separation policies – pushed by Stephen Miller who has cited white nationalist propaganda in promoting his views. It’s also, apparently, a violation of a U.N. treaty, the Convention on the Rights of the Child.”
Ooooh, seems pretty bad. Rep. Nydia Velazquez (D-NY) also tweeted: “#1 is a slot you want to see… except for when it’s a worldwide ranking of detained children. Not only is it wrong & inhuman to endanger the lives of over 100,000 children in immigration-related custody, but it VIOLATES international law.” In a tweet replying to herself, Rep. Velazquez continued: “I urge each & every member of our #NY7 community to read up & speak out bc this is no mistake – this is a direct result of the Trump admin’s racist, anti-immigrant agenda. This is shameful!”
The Latino Victory US, an open borders Leftist organization, echoed Rep. Velazquez’ sentiments: “The United States of America – the richest & most powerful country on the planet – has the world’s highest rate of detained children. Let that sink in. Make no mistake, this is not an accident. This is a direct result of Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda.”
My God, what is Trump to do?! He is detaining children, holding them hostage and reportedly treating them inhumanely! Oh God! OH GOD WHAT ARE WE TO… hey, is that the author of the U.N. report? What’s he doing? Is he… is he saying that the numbers in the report aren’t accurate for 2018, but are actually from 2015, when Obama was president? Huh.
Yep, the AFP, upon finding out about it, tweeted the following: “AFP is withdrawing this story. The author of the report has clarified that his figures do not represent the number of children in migration-related US detention, but the total number of children in migration-related US detention in 2015. We will delete the story.”
Wait, is it not newsworthy anymore that the U.S. was holding so many children in detention now? I get that the story is not new because the figures aren’t new, but the message of the story was supposed to be to take care of migrant children and be humane towards them, right? Or was it just supposed to be a “gotcha” for the Trump administration?
Obviously, these are rhetorical questions because we already know the answer: the fake news media is in collusion with the Deep State to take down Trump and this has been the case since even before Trump won the election.
Reuters similarly deleted their story upon this revelation, Rep. Grace Meng also seemingly deleted her tweet about it, as did the Democratic Coalition upon discovering that, if they had kept the tweet up, they would’ve inadvertently been calling President Obama a “#ShitholePresident”. But you have to ask, if Trump would’ve been considered that bad word if he had done that, why isn’t Obama being considered the “s**thole president”? He’s the one that did it.
Remember all those pictures of kids locked up in cages (like the one above) that the fake news media, like with this story, tried to pass off as Trump’s doing until it was found out that the pictures were from 2014, so it was during Obama’s tenure? Why doesn’t Obama, who was the one that actually kept these kids in these conditions and apparently in violation of international law, get the ire that Trump was getting when these idiots thought it was him?
Again, rhetorical questions, all of them. Rep. Grace Meng said that the Trump administration was separating families, detaining kids in cages and denying them basic “necessities & medical care”. Quite a horrible thing had it been Trump who did it, but all of a sudden, it doesn’t matter because it was actually Obama who was separating families, detaining kids in cages and denying them basic necessities and medical care?
Was it only “Our National Shame” when it was thought that Trump was keeping these kids in cages but it wasn’t “Our National Shame” when Obama was the one actually doing it? And surely, one cannot blame Trump’s “family-separation policies” when Obama was the one separating the families. Furthermore, apparently it was only “wrong” and “inhuman” to “endanger” the lives of 100,000 children when they thought Trump was doing it, but when Obama was actually doing it, it wasn’t “wrong”, “inhuman” or “endangering” the lives of children.
Apparently, it’s only racist if they think Trump did it, but when Obama was actually doing it, it was perfectly fine. These are all things that the people I mentioned earlier charged Trump with. They said he was endangering kids’ lives, that it was racist, that it was wrong, that it was shameful, that he was denying them basic human rights, and they have no problem levying these false charges against Trump, but the minute they find out Obama was actually the one whom they should be levying these charges, they keep utterly quiet.
For the record, I have come around to supporting the “family separation” policies (as the Left calls them) because these “families”, more often than not, are not actually families but minors being accompanied by total strangers hoping to enter the country with essentially a free ticket. Notice how throughout the story, any point where I said “oohh, seems bad” was entirely sarcastic not only because I knew very well that it was actually Obama doing this, but because even if Trump actually had been the one doing this, I wouldn’t have minded.
Better to keep these kids separated from total strangers who could easily abuse them or sell them off to slavery than keep them with these strangers, running these risks, all for the sake of putting up an act of “keeping families together”.
But regardless of what I think about it, these Leftists have made their own thoughts about it plenty clearly, at least when they think it was Trump. When they think it’s Trump, just about every bad story that can come out is pushed to its extreme to attempt to make him suffer for it. But one comes to find that just about every charge they levy against Trump is actually something that Obama did.
Collusion to rig an election? Obama weaponized the intel community to spy on the Trump campaign and sought the services of Ukraine.
Family separation at the border? Obama kept kids in these cages.
Quid Pro Quo? Biden, with Obama’s blessing, threatened to withhold aid to Ukraine if they didn’t fire a top prosecutor investigating Burisma and Hunter Biden.
OBAMA was the one who was separating families at the border, denying them basic necessities and medical care. OBAMA’S administration is what “Our National Shame” was. OBAMA was the “s**thole president”. OBAMA was the one doing what these people considered wrong. But the minute they find out the truth, they go silent. It wasn’t wrong if OBAMA was doing it.
It’s utterly twisted and the reason as to why I cannot take these fools seriously when they try to claim moral superiority on any and every issue. They are completely IMMORAL to the bone.
To them, right and wrong are entirely subjective. Separating families is wrong when Trump does it but right when Obama does it. Colluding to rig an election is wrong if Trump is accused of doing it but perfectly legitimate when Obama does it. Their hypocrisy knows no bounds and it’s pathetic.

It might be rather annoying for some people to read headline after headline regarding a natural disaster being blamed on climate change, but it’s personally become a hobby for me to look at them and take some enjoyment out of it (not because of the people affected by it, of course, as that is always the tragic part of the story, but because of the ridiculous crap these unhinged Leftists have to say about it).
And most recently, we have Venice, Italy being hit with what is being considered the worst flood in 50 years.
From the AP: “The worst flooding in Venice in more than 50 years prompted calls Wednesday to better protect the historic city from rising sea levels as officials calculated hundreds of millions of euros in damage. The water reached 1.87 meters (6.14 feet) above average sea level Tuesday, the second-highest level ever recorded in the city and just 7 centimeters (2.5 inches) lower than the historic 1966 flood. Another wave of exceptionally high water followed Wednesday.”
The mayor of Venice, Luigi Brugnaro, said: “Venice is on its knees. St. Mark’s Basilica has sustained serious damage, like the entire city and its islands.”
Suffice to say, many fake news sites (and the mayor himself) are doing their best to blame this on climate change. However, there are a number of problems with this.
First of all, as previously established, this isn’t the first time Venice has flooded like this. Venice itself is a city that is permanently flooded. It’s been like this for centuries. The Wikipedia page on Venice itself mentions that 600 years ago, Venetians “protected themselves from land-based attacks by diverting all the major rivers flowing into the lagoon and thus preventing sediment from filling the area around the city. This created an ever-deeper lagoon environment.” The page also notes that in 1608, Venice produced one of the earliest examples of paper currency in order to offset the cost of flood relief.
Now, I know that Wikipedia is not necessarily the most factual of sites to use, but I cannot find information like this elsewhere that goes into that sort of detail. But even if literally none of that is true, there is no denying the second point:
Just last year, fake news sites were blaming climate change on the Venetian canals RUNNING DRY. From the U.K. Express: “Where’s the water GON-DOLA? Venice’s iconic canals run DRY after weeks without rain.” So it’s climate change when the city overfloods and it’s also climate change when the canals dry up?
Thirdly, Venice tends to get floods every year, between the seasons of autumn and spring. The Guardian has an article, though a tad outdated by this point, that shows pictures of various floods in Venice’s recent existence. They show floods from November of 1927, December of 1933, March of 1964, February of 1974, 1980 (no month given), November of 1996, November of 2001, October of 2006, January of 2010, November of 2011, October of 2012, and November of 2012 (article was published in 2015, so it doesn’t go much further than that).
And even then, those aren’t all the floods the city has endured, as previously mentioned, with the city’s worst flooding having occurred in 1966.
But the point I’m trying to make here is that you cannot seriously suggest that flooding that was a regular occurrence since at least the 1600s, if going by the Wikipedia article, or at least the 1800s (there is a painting from Vincenzo Chilone that shows a flood in 1825) could in any way be due to climate change.
One common theme across all of the fake news articles blaming climate change is that they specifically blame rising sea levels for the floods. But there is a major problem with that. According to the NOAA, sea levels are rising at 1/8th of an inch per year, or 3.175mm per year. But multiple studies suggest that Venice is sinking at a rate of 1-2mm per year, slower than the average that NOAA gives us.
Meaning that rising sea levels cannot be attributed as the culprit of this. Now, I understand that averages don’t necessarily reflect individual cases. However, if sea levels rising are to be blamed, this is something we have to discuss. Venice, a city that is perpetually underwater with canals (that sometimes dry up), is sinking at a lower rate than these Leftists claim the rest of the world is. How exactly does that make sense? If the entire world is at risk due to rising sea levels (which I challenge because the ice caps aren’t melting and even if they were, the water would remain roughly where it is), wouldn’t Venice have to be at extreme risk and shouldn’t the average sinking rate for Venice itself have to be considerably higher than the alleged global average?
Even if you think I’m wrong or I make no sense here, there is no denying the utter hypocrisy the fake news media constantly shows. When it gets particularly hot, they blame climate change. When it gets particularly cold, they blame climate change. When there’s a hurricane, they blame climate change to the point they ridiculously claim there were no hurricanes before climate change “began”. When there is a forest fire in California, they blame climate change instead of the dangerous and idiotic Leftist policies that endanger the State, the wildlife, the forest and the citizens. When there is a flooding in a city that is perpetually flooded, they blame climate change. When the canals in Venice dry up instead of continuing to flood, they blame climate change.
Basically, if LITERALLY ANYTHING AT ALL HAPPENS, it’s climate change’s fault. Lost your job? Climate change. Significant other cheated on you? Climate change. Got a flat tire? Climate change. These people are like Mr. Turner blaming Dinkleberg for everything, only sadder because that is a cartoon and this is real life.

In this day and age, we never run short of examples of media or overall Leftist hypocrisy. However, this case is one that particularly grinds my gears because it is a story relating to sexual assault, pedophilia and protecting the elites who often act as though they are above the law (and in some cases, unfortunately, are above the law, at least the law of Man).
Back when then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was facing an onslaught of ever-crazier stories of sexual assault, rape and misconduct, ABC News was one of the main headliners of these stories, running multiple reports of these allegations, including the most bombastic one: Julie Swetnick’s. If you remember, her story included multiple parties that she had attended some 30 or 40 years prior where in each and every one, she alleges there were “rape trains” occurring but ultimately could not remember if Kavanaugh was one of the guys who allegedly participated in it.
I said that that one was likely the single craziest one and least credible one of them all (few, if any, were credible, with Ford’s being the most likely to have been credible and even then, there were many question marks about her testimony), and yet, ABC News ran with the story as though it was 100% credible and as though there was sufficient evidence in the story to run it.
Keep that last point in mind, as it will be important later on.
In any case, that is what the fake news organization, ABC News, attempted to do to Kavanaugh: smear him with any and all allegations of heinous acts of rape and sexual misconduct. And yet, according to a recent bombshell video from Project Veritas, the same people who pushed for the crazy and unverified allegations against Kavanaugh decided not to report on the heinous, more credible, and more provable actions of now-deceased Democrat mega-donor Jeffrey Epstein.
In a leaked video, ABC News anchor Amy Robach said the following on a hot mic:
“I’ve had the story for three years. I’ve had this interview with Virginia Roberts (one of Epstein’s alleged victims and accusers). We would not put it on the air. First of all, I was told ‘Who’s Jeffrey Epstein?’, ‘No one knows who that is,’, ‘This is a stupid story.’ Then the (Royal) Palace found out that we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew (who was implicated in the Epstein story) and threatened us a million different ways. We were so afraid we wouldn’t be able to interview Kate and Will, that also quashed the story. And then Alan Dershowitz was also implicated in it because of the planes. [Roberts] told me everything. She had pictures, she had everything. She was in hiding for 12 years, we convinced her to come out. We convinced her to talk to us. It was unbelievable what we had, (Bill) Clinton, we had everything.”
“I tried for three years to get it on to no avail and now it’s all coming out and it’s like these new relevant revelations and I freaking had all of it. I’m so pissed right now, like every day I get more and more pissed because I’m like, oh my God, what we had was unreal. Other women backing it up. Brad Edwards, the attorney (for the alleged victims), three years ago saying like, ‘there will come a day [when] we will realize Jeffrey was the most prolific pedophile this country has ever known.’ I had it all three years ago.”
Of course, this bombshell of a leaked video had to be addressed by both Amy and her employer, ABC News, particularly because of how bad this makes them look as a news organization. This is extremely similar to the NBC News story where they had the opportunity to report on Harvey Weinstein’s rapes and sexual assaults but chose to bury the story.
In any case, here is Amy Robach’s statement regarding the leaked footage and what she said on the hot mic:
“As a journalist, as the Epstein story continued to unfold last summer, I was caught in a private moment of frustration. I was upset that an important interview I had conducted with Virginia Roberts didn’t air because we could not obtain sufficient corroborating evidence to meet ABC’s editorial standards about her allegations. My comments about Prince Andrew and her allegation that she had seen Bill Clinton on Epstein’s private islands were in reference to what Virginia Roberts said in that interview in 2015. I was referencing her allegations – not what ABC News had verified through our reporting. The interview itself, while I was disappointed it didn’t air, didn’t meet our standards. In the years since no one ever told me or the team to stop reporting on Jeffrey Epstein, and we have continued to aggressively pursue this important story.”
And here’s ABC News’ statement reflecting something similar to Robach’s:
“At the time, not all of our reporting met our standards to air, but we have never stopped investigating the story. Ever since we’ve had a team on this investigation and substantial resources dedicated to it. That work had led to a two-hour documentary and 6-part podcast that will air in the new year.”
One key element in both statements is the allegation that ABC News has any sort of editorial standards. I, presently, cannot find any corroborating evidence of such an allegation, given what they considered to be “news-worthy” enough for these people to run.
Again, they ran the extremely poor and hilariously bad allegation from JULIE SWETNICK. She alleged something insane, where she expected people to believe she would go to a party held by the same high schoolers (she was in college) around ten different times, knowing after the first experience that “rape trains” would occur and STILL went. And ALL OF THAT just to eventually reveal that she wasn’t even sure whether or not Kavanaugh, the subject in question and the one being marred as a serial rapist and sexual abuser, actually participated in any of the sexual assaults or rapes that allegedly occurred at those parties.
Not only was her testimony extremely suspicious and completely incredible (as in, not credible at all), but she ultimately couldn’t even really allege much about THE GUY THESE PEOPLE WERE TRYING TO PAINT AS A RAPIST DEMON and they STILL ran her story as though she were sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the whole world needed to hear her story, despite the fact that Swetnick had no corroborating evidence to anything she was alleging.
The statement from Robach even sounds almost like she had a gun to her head from her employers if she didn’t try and correct the record or issue some sort of clarification that would save ABC News’ face to some degree. It sounds extremely forced and for good reason: ABC News wishes they could bury this story like they did the Epstein one.
The Epstein story, having heavily implicated both Prince Andrew and former President Bill Clinton (Clinton had traveled in Epstein’s private jets and the pilot logs frequently note that underage girls would accompany him and Epstein, painting Clinton as even more of a sexual assaulter and demon than he already was due to the Broaddrick, Lewisnky and Paula Jones scandals), would’ve hurt the Democrats, particularly then-hopeful Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton.
Yet another story implicating Bill Clinton’s sexual misconduct would’ve only piled on more to Hillary’s inability to be an electable candidate. The e-mails and the already-known sexual assault allegations made against Bill were bad enough, the last thing the Democrat Party needed was yet another story where “the comeback kid” (a nickname that now sounds so horrible when you think about it) likely could have raped not only more women, but underage girls.
This is the utterly despicable hypocrisy the Left-wing media possesses. If a prominent right-winger gets accused of sexual misconduct, it is treated as fact despite all the lacking evidence and even despite any semblance of credibility. Kavanaugh has been forever marred as a rapist and sexual assaulter by these people. His reputation has been eternally tarnished.
But if a prominent left-winger gets accused of sexual misconduct, no matter the available evidence or the credibility of the accusation, the story gets buried, ignored and the left-winger continues to be paraded around as a “woke” character who is of great moral standing.
Beyond the fact that this is horrendously hypocritical, what’s even worse is the fact that this only puts sexual assault victims and future victims at risk. Real stories will go unreported because of the fake ones that gain national attention and get recognized as fake and young girls are led to believe that these Democrats are good and kind-hearted people, eager to help you with anything you need and can be wholly trusted regarding anything.
It puts young girls at risk of being raped and their testimony shut down. It covers for sexual assaulters and rapists and leaves vulnerable girls at risk of it happening to them in the future. Let’s not forget that the Katie Hill story was covered like the Clinton impeachment story was: that it was just about sex. It wasn’t just about sex. It was about having sex with a subordinate, which goes against House ethics rules, and about sexually abusing the subordinate and pimping her out to the representative’s husband. There were PHOTOGRAPHS of this occurring and the media treated Katie Hill like SHE was the victim of a vast right-wing conspiracy.
Meanwhile, no attention is paid to how her victims feel about the entire fiasco, no attention is paid to the victims of Jeffrey Epstein and Bill Clinton (and others) because the allegations made are against the people these Leftists in the media support and favor.
ABC News should feel utterly ashamed at what they are doing and what they have done, but we know good and well that they have no shame to feel. They’ll sweep this whole ordeal under the rug and go on to continue to report highly incredible allegations against right-wingers where they might pop up and continue to report on how “screwed” Trump is due to the impeachment scam.
These people make me sick.
