  • Washington Post 'fact-checker' busted lying to protect Joe Biden

    08/08/2020 6:46:06 PM PDT · by lowbridge · 23 replies ^ | August 7, 2020 | Libby Emmons
    Yesterday, presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden had to walk back a gaffe in which he said that there is a lack of ideological diversity in the black community in the United States. But for Washington Post fact checker Glenn Kessler, the gaffe never happened.
  • Bezos’ Propaganda Rag/Newspaper Praises Communist China

    08/08/2020 4:18:07 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 23 replies ^ | August 8, 2020 | Chris Talgo
    On August 4, The Washington Post—which is owned by the world’s richest man, Jeff Bezos—ran a story under the headline: “Trump views China’s Communist Party as a threat. Young Chinese see it as a ticket to a better future.” This is fake news at its worst. Before diving into the details of this obviously ludicrous article, let me offer a real-world example of one former Chinese youth who would vehemently disagree with this outrageous contention.Several years ago, my parents adopted a little girl from China. She was an orphan (thanks to China’s One Child Policy) who assuredly did not have...

    Top tech leaders and other billionaires would be forced to hand over billions of dollars in wealth they've gained during the coronavirus pandemic under a new bill introduced by Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Ed Markey, D-Mass., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y. The "Make Billionaires Pay Act" would impose a one-time 60% tax on wealth gains made by billionaires between March 18, 2020, and Jan. 1, 2021. The funds would be used to pay for out-of-pocket health-care expenses for all Americans for a year. As of Aug. 5, the bill would tax $731 billion in wealth accumulated by 467 billionaires since March...

    (Washington, D.C.) — The extremist and often violent global movement known as the Muslim Brotherhood has been dealt a severe blow as five judges in a top court in the Kingdom of Jordan decreed the organization illegal. The Brotherhood is now being dissolved and will not be permitted to compete in Jordan’s upcoming November 10th parliamentary elections that were just announced. A growing number of Arab countries Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain have banned the radical organization and branded them as terrorists......Turkey and Qatar, by contrast, actively support the Brotherhood, both financially and politically. Senior Jordanian...

  • CNN's Stelter accused of breaching network's confidentiality agreement with Sandmann: 'May cost him his job'

    CNN's chief media correspondent Brian Stelter may have landed himself in hot water, according to the attorney of Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann. Last week, Sandmann announced that The Washington Post settled the $250 million defamation lawsuit he filed over its botched coverage of a viral confrontation with a Native American elder who had portrayed the Kentucky teen as the aggressor. This followed the multimillion dollar settlement agreement CNN reached with the teenager back in January. However, Sandmann's attorney, Lin Wood, spotted a retweet from Stelter of a tweet written by attorney Mark Zaid, who speculated about how...
  • Drezner: You all need to adjust to the fact that UFOs exist

    You can add another voice from the media and education community to the growing list of military and government figures who are now talking about the potential realities of UFOs, no matter where they’re actually coming from. Daniel Drezner, a writer for the Washington Post, as well as a professor at Tufts University, tosses another log on the fire this week with a provocative proclamation. According to Drezner, we’ve hit the point where everyone needs to get used to the idea that we have things flitting around in our airspace that we can’t yet explain. He then dangles the bait...

    UFOs are not the same thing as extraterrestrial life. But we should start thinking about that possibility. Footage from 2004 shows an encounter between a U.S. fighter jet and "anomalous aerial vehicles," which is military jargon for UFOs. Former intelligence officer Luis Elizondo arranged the release of the video before leaving the Department of Defense in Sept. 2017

    Brace yourself for wave upon wave of … political polls. The latest show President Trump lagging presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, as usual. But stop. Let us do what no one does – look BEHIND these polls, understand the process and bias in polling. Take two recent polls, by NPR/PBS/Marist (NPR) and ABC/Washington Post (ABC). Both report new anti-Trump findings. Take a moment and unpack them. – like may non-technical, left-leaning sites – summarizes both. A stinging line punctuates a leading paragraph. Says MSN, NPR’s poll “has Biden beating Trump 60 percent to 35 percent among suburban voters.”...

    The new lawsuit filed by two women against Fox News and several of its personalities is riddled with inaccuracies. This raises questions about the veracity of its claims. Jennifer Eckhart and Cathy Areu, a former Fox Business producer and frequent network guest, respectively, claim that they suffered sexual misconduct, harassment, and even rape at the hands of Ed Henry, Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, and Howard Kurtz.The lawsuit immediately made waves in the mainstream media, where it was picked up by the New York Times, CNN, the Washington Post, CBS News, and other major outlets. It has been a top trending topic...

    Washington Post ^ | July 22, 2020 | Darryl Fears, and Steven Mufson
    No one is more important to the history of environmental conservation than John Muir — the “wilderness prophet,” “patron saint of the American wilderness” and “father of the national parks” who founded the nation’s oldest conservation organization, the Sierra Club. But on Wednesday, citing the current racial reckoning, the group announced it will end its blind reverence to a figure who was also racist. As Confederate statues fall across the country, Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune said in an early morning post on the group’s website, “it’s time to take down some of our own monuments, starting with some...
  • Progressive Policies Wreck Everything

    I laughed when I saw The Washington Post headline: "Minneapolis had progressive policies, but its economy still left black families behind." The media are so clueless. Instead of "but," the headline should have said, "therefore," or "so, obviously." Of course, progressive policies failed! They almost always do. "If you wanted a poster child for the progressive movement, it would be Minneapolis," says Republican Minnesota Senate candidate Jason Lewis in my new video. "This is the same city council that voted to abolish the police department." The council, which has no Republicans, spends taxpayer money on most every progressive idea. They...

    The sweeping hack of verified Twitter accounts Wednesday night was one of the largest security lapses in the platform’s history and led to thousands of users being partially locked out for hours. But the social media giant, and its users, may have gotten off easy. Now lawmakers and top officials are mulling how to ensure Twitter is not hacked by groups with more malicious intentions and how to protect other potential cyber targets from the same fate. The conversation has taken on a particular urgency as geopolitical tensions increase during the COVID-19 pandemic with only months left until a presidential...

    he best thing that can be said about Willard Mitt Romney, the future one-term RINO Senator from Utah, is that he looks good in an empty suit. The wooden Romney, who holds the distinction of being the only candidate to lose a presidential debate to both Barack Hussein Obama and CNN’s Candy Crowley, has climbed down from the top of the wedding cake to opine that Trump has now become the poster child for ultimate corruption with his commutation of the outrageous sentence given to former associate Roger Stone for made-up process crimes. Romney’s saying Trump’s commutation of Roger Stone’s...

    Amid the surge in gun sales that began in March and continues even now, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) estimates 40 percent of sales are going to first-time gun buyers. A report by the Wall Street Journal cites the NSSF estimate, noting that the FBI “processed 7.8 million background checks for gun purchases from March to June.” The report pointed out that handguns make up the predominant portion of firearms being purchased, and that “nearly two handguns, commonly used for self-protection, are being sold for every rifle or shotgun.”
  • Spike in violent crime follows rise in gun-buying amid social upheaval

    Washington Post ^ | July 15, 2020 | Christopher Ingraham
    Americans purchased millions more guns than usual this spring, spurred in large part by racial animosity stoked by widespread protests over the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, as well as anxiety over the effects of the covid-19 pandemic. That gun-buying binge is associated with a significant increase in gun violence across the United States. Those are the conclusions of two studies by the Brookings Institution and the University of California at Davis, respectively. Together, they paint a portrait of a society arming itself against social upheaval during a time of institutional failure. The Brookings study, after examining federal background...

    Center for Immigration Studies ^ | June 24, 2020 | Todd Bensman
    Evidence continues to mount that spikes in Covid cases in U.S. border states are due to successive waves of infected people fleeing Mexico's dysfunctional and overwhelmed hospitals to get American medical care at least as much, if not more than, to the re-opening of those states' economies. This matters because officials in border states are beginning to base policy decisions for partial lock-downs on grounds that lifting them is what caused the spikes... Earlier, the Washington Post, the New York Times, and the Wall Street Journal all reported a crush of infected people from Mexico coming over the Arizona and...

The Washington Post decided to go out and prove her even more correct this morning by publishing what is one of the worst, most poorly cited articles I’ve ever read.
