  • VANITY:Is there video compilation on the chronology of BuzzFeed story & 1/18/19 fake news reports?

    self ^ | 1/21/19 | self
    Looking through YouTube for a video compilation of all news sources calling for Trump's impeachment on Friday, 1/18/19 because of the BuzzFeed report about Michael Cohen's new allegations, and the way that everything came down in flames on Friday night, when Mueller released his statement pointing out inaccuracies in the story. This has the potential of becoming an "All Hail The Trumpen King" moment, if a video compilation is made or has been made. Any ideas where I could find such a compilation? I assume the same could be said and made about the MAGA hat Catholic School matter at...
  • Sunday Was the Day When Real News Ceased to Exist

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) The fake news appears to be undergoing a “quickening”, to borrow a phrase. As the fake journalists a the nation’s major media outlets carry out their increasingly frenzied efforts to carry water for the Democrats, the presence of anything remotely resembling real “news” reporting on the nation’s airwaves becomes little more than passing memories of a previous generation. On Sunday, pretty much the entirety of the establishment news media focused almost exclusively on two stories that fake reporters had simply invented: a) the Buzzfeed report that claimed President Donald Trump had ordered...

    Teen who taunted Native American man at march defends his actions The MAGA hat-wearing teen who went viral over the weekend — after he was caught on camera smiling and staring down an elderly Native American war vet at the Indigenous Peoples March in Washington — has come forward to defend his actions. “I am providing this factual account of what happened on Friday afternoon at the Lincoln Memorial to correct misinformation and outright lies being spread about my family and me,” explained Nick Sandmann, a junior at Covington Catholic High School in northern Kentucky.

    PEARLAND, Texas (FOX 26) - Pearland police say a woman posed as her autistic "twin", who doesn't exist, and deceived a caregiver in a hoax for her own sexual gratification. According to the Pearland Police Department, Rachel Childs, 29, solicited a caregiver online under the pretense of caring for her twin sister with autism. Police say Childs instructed the caregiver to pick up her sister and take her to the caregiver's home for the night.

    If you’re in a public place and someone starts heckling you, are you entitled to heckle back? How about if someone does something much worse than heckling you in a public place? What if that person in fact takes a drum up to you and starts banging it in your face? Are you entitled to heckle back? How about smirking? Are you allowed to smirk? I think you are, even if you’re wearing a MAGA hat. Even if you’re an entitled brat. Even if you’re an entitled Catholic brat. We’ll stipulate that the Catholic boys from a high school in...

    Forget "rolling coal." A new trend called "ICE-ing," in which pickup truck owners purposefully block electric vehicle charging stations, appears to be gaining ground around the country. The practice, whose name is derived from "internal combustion engine," was observed over the holidays at a Sheetz gas station in Hickory, N.C. Reddit user Leicina shared a photo on Dec. 23, 2018, of three large pickups blocking access to Tesla Inc. charging stations. The drivers apparently chanted "----Tesla." "I've never had a supercharging experience like this one," wrote Leicina, who owns a Tesla Model 3. "These trucks blocked all the chargers, chanted...

    Critics are pushing back against the portrayal of students from Covington Catholic High School as racist, after a confrontation between the school and a Native American counter-demonstrator at the March for Life on Friday. The headline from the Associated Press at the Hollywood Reporter — repeated in some form by outlets across the country — read: “Students in ‘Make America Great Again’ Hats Mock Native Americans After Washington Rally.” CNN declared: “Teens in Make America Great Again hats taunted a Native American elder at the Lincoln Memorial.” A viral video showed a group of male students cavorting on the steps...

    Saturday was National Popcorn Day, but I’ve been nibbling on popcorn all week as Nancy Pelosi learned a lesson about presidential power and the media was gut checked by the special prosecutor. I haven’t had this much fun since election night 2016. While she might have thought otherwise, the power of the commander-in-chief is far greater than that of the speaker of the House, and the humiliating way this was brought home to the congressional equivalent of Maerose Prizzi (h/t Michael Walsh) was something. She anticipated that she and her posse of cronies and their families (reports of a ninety-some...

    Lawmakers and experts are sounding the alarm about "deepfakes," forged videos that look remarkably real, warning they will be the next phase in disinformation campaigns. The manipulated videos make it difficult to distinguish between fact and fiction, as artificial intelligence technology produces fake content that looks increasingly real. The issue has the attention of lawmakers from both parties on Capitol Hill. “It is almost too late to sound the alarm before this technology is released — it has been unleashed … and now we are playing a bit of defense,” Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Mark Warner (D-Va.) told The...

    When a BuzzFeed reporter first sought comment on the news outlet’s explosive report that President Trump had directed his lawyer to lie to Congress, the spokesman for special counsel Robert S. Mueller III treated the request as he would almost any other story. The reporter informed Mueller’s spokesman, Peter Carr, that he and a colleague had “a story coming stating that Michael Cohen was directed by President Trump himself to lie to Congress about his negotiations related to the Trump Moscow project,” according to copies of their emails provided by a BuzzFeed spokesman. Importantly, the reporter made no reference to...

    There is no reason to believe Buzzfeed, Salon, or any of those far left “news organizations.” They are full of a supposition that is intended to paint President Trump in a bad light, make him look anti-American and drive down his public polls numbers. Anything full of so much blatant opinion with no supporting facts is garbage. On Friday, Buzzfeed proved that to be true.Buzzfeed released a “bombshell report” this week. The article claimed that there was evidence proving Trump told his longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about a Trump Tower project plan in Moscow. The...

    Journalism is dead. It wasn’t murder, or old age, it was suicide. Journalism died after drinking a cocktail of contempt, arrogance, ignorance, and enough narrative to kill a whale. Its corpse rolls on, meeting deadlines, publishing stories, and forming cable news panels continuing to extol the virtues of the poisons that killed it. They deserve your skepticism and your contempt.The latest nail in the media’s credibility coffin landed Friday night. It was a bombshell story that declared, “President Donald Trump directed his longtime attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, according...

    Keep Hope Alive! Back when The Wall Stree Journal's James Taranto wrote the paper's 'Best of the Web' column, one of his rubrics was 'Diagram this Sentence,' in which readers were challenged to deconstruct a long and confusing line from a [usually] liberal author. On Saturday's AM Joy, MSNBC legal analyst Maya Wiley offered a prime example of the genre. Responding to the refutation by the Mueller team of Buzzfeed's report that President Trump had ordered Michael Cohen to lie about Russia collusion, Wiley said: "In this case, it doesn't mean, what we are hearing in this, does not mean...

The problem was that the entire credibility of that BuzzFeed story depended upon one Jason Leopold...And we knew how that would go. The same way Fitzmas I went when Leopold guaranteed that Karl Rove would be indicted on May 12, 2006. In this video we can see the DUmmie Freudenschade celebrations yesterday as well as the exact moment when they stopped at 6:09 P.M.. Nothing else...

    CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin fretted Friday that many Americans would dismiss the news media as a "bunch of leftist liars" in the wake of the BuzzFeed News story called "not accurate" by special counsel Robert Mueller's office. BuzzFeed set off a Washington firestorm on Thursday with its report that President Donald Trump had directed longtime lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. However, on Friday night, a spokesman for Mueller's office said the report was "not accurate." "BuzzFeed's description of specific statements to the Special Counsel's Office, and characterization of...

    On 18 January, 2019, during the March for Life in Washington, D.C., another much smaller event was also scheduled. It was the first Indigenous Peoples March.  The video at the link shows there may have been a couple of hundred at the march, compared to many thousands at the 46th March for Life. Nathan Phillips, an Oklahoma elder and Native American activist, was drumming and chanting during the two events. He moved away from his group and approached a group of pro-life teenagers, some of who were wearing MAGA hats. The video can be seen below. Phillips gets right...

    Former White House political strategist Karl Rove warned Senate Republicans in a meeting this week not to become overly reliant on their conservative base as they head into what could be a tough 2020 presidential election. Rove, who served as former President George W. Bush’s top political strategist, was brought in by Senate GOP leaders to speak to the 22 Republican incumbents up for reelection at an all-day planning session Thursday hosted at Nationals Park in southeast Washington, D.C. GOP lawmakers are getting nervous about next year’s election as polls show President Trump’s approval rating dropping during the 28-day government...
