  • Project Veritas 'CNN Leaks' fall flat

    02/23/2017 6:00:21 PM PST · by MNDude · 49 replies
    For a few days, Project Veritas founder and conservative activist James O'Keefe has been hyping the release of what he said were hundreds of hours of undercover audio recordings of employees at CNN. Some staffers at CNN were legitimately alarmed that O'Keefe would be releasing tapes that could be embarrassing for the network. O'Keefe is known for his undercover video recordings, though questions over deceptive editing and concerns about the questionable tactics used to obtain those recordings have plagued some of his prior work. Before releasing the tapes Thursday, O'Keefe was featured on The Drudge Report and on Sean Hannity's...
  • 'Hillary Beat Trump' website lets people pretend Clinton won the presidential election

    The Birmingham News ^ | February 23, 2017 | Leada Gore
    Talk about your fake news.... A new website, HillaryBeatTrump.org, claims to tell the news "from the Real America where the majority rules." The site is written as if former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump in the November 2016 presidential election. The satirical website doesn't hold back on its thoughts, with headlines ranging from "Revelation: God comes out as Hillary supporter," "President Clinton awards Obama the Congressional Medal of Freedom," and "Historians say Clinton's presidency is already in all-time top five." Other headlines take a not-so-subtle jab at President Trump, like "NYT pans Clinton's "oppressively intelligent press conference"...

    It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood. That’s unusual for Presidents’ Day in Chicago, where the weather is typically a mournful dirge for Abraham Lincoln and George Washington, with blowing snow and biting wind. But in 2017, it was a gentle, sunny day that felt like mid-May. A good day for a protest, and one had gathered on the riverbank opposite Trump Tower. There were lots of police nearby, but they were relaxed, without much to do. The demonstration was clearly peaceful, so I decided to walk over and see what it was about. It was about President Donald...

    It sure sounds like CBS is getting defensive over Donald Trump’s attack on “fake news.” A new ad for CBS This Morning on Monday featured a blazing graphic declaring the show “REAL NEWS.” Yet, the network has a history of fawning over Barack Obama and hammering Trump. On February 2, CBS This Morning reporter Omar Villafranca lamented the “dream denied” for illegals after the “somber” 2016 election. Last week, CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley responded to Trump’s attack on the “fake news media” by lecturing that “the common denominator of Mr. Trump’s woes is the Constitution.”

They’ll chant and rage and blow whistles and hold up placards with Trump done up like a tangerine Hitler. But don’t be fooled. These people are the militant wing of the old establishment. They’re radicals for the old status quo, pining for the pre-Brexit, pre-Trump era when their kind ruled and ordinary people knew their place. The aim of the Stop Trump gatherings is to encourage MPs to deny Trump a...

In one of the wildest presidential press conferences on record, Trump lashed out at the media, Hillary Clinton, the intelligence community, judges and Democrats — among many others. It was a spectacle for the ages — one that his most loyal supporters probably loved, but which political insiders...

Trump campaigned hard on the idea that immigrants threaten American communities, take away jobs and abuse government benefits like housing assistance and food stamps. So Goldberg pulled together a panel of local business and community leaders that offered an entirely different perspective. They say immigrants and refugees are critical to their...

    The climate isn't the easiest. Economic uncertainty and political unknowns abound on both sides of the Atlantic. In the US with the new administration of Donald Trump and its protectionist and isolationist tone. And in Europe, rocked by Brexit and anxiously awaiting elections in nations that are key to the future the Union. But most of all for Italy Inc, whose companies are determinedly betting on their own excellence despite their often niche positions. Confronted with uncertainty, they must focus on attracting international investment and on expanding their presence in the US with acquisitions and growth on US soil. This...

    This election cycle, Michelle Obama proved she could give a speech as well as — and maybe even better than — her husband. But according to her law professor, Michelle’s skills rivaled Barack’s in other areas, too. TMZ caught up with Charles Ogletree Jr., a constitutional law professor at Harvard who taught both the Obamas when they attended the university. And according to him, Michelle was the better student — and would’ve been the better president. First, Ogletree confirmed that Barack was totally that guy in law school: “He was speaking too much,’” he said. “He wanted everything. He said,...

    UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres thinks he's got terror figured out: apparently, any rule that can be perceived as taking issue with Islam will "fuel terrorism." While not a direct quote, Guterres does say regulations like President Trump's travel ban will create more terrorists: “One of the things that fuel terrorism is the expression in some parts of the world of Islamophobic feelings and Islamophobic policies and Islamophobic hate speeches,” Guterres said at a joint news conference with Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir. “This is sometimes the best support that Daesh can have to make its own propaganda,” Guterres said,...
