  • Andy Ngo on Antifa Assault, What Happens If Trump Is Re-elected, and His Future

    11/08/2019 8:07:51 AM PST · by rktman · 4 replies ^ | 11/8/2019 | Julio Rosas
    Independent journalist Andy Ngo has gained a following for his coverage of Antifa protests in Portland, Oregon, and, more recently, the assault perpetrated by masked assailants during one protest in June of this year. Four months later, Ngo voiced his frustrations with the investigation into his assault, what his predictions are for the Antifa movement if President Trump wins in 2020, and what the future holds for his reporting on the group. Speaking at the Heritage Foundation about Antifa and to Townhall and the Daily Caller after the event, on Thursday, Ngo said while he understands a police investigation can...

    Protesters interrupted the CNN LGBTQ town hall on Thursday to highlight the plight of black transgender women, at one point taking the mic from a questioner. Advocates tracked the deaths of at least 26 transgender people in the US in 2018, according to the Human Rights Campaign. In 2019, at least 19 transgender people have been fatally shot or killed, according to HRC.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday that President Donald Trump is “scared” of the impeachment inquiry she launched last week centered on a whistleblower complaint alleging he pressured Ukraine to help investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and interfere in the 2020 presidential election. “I think the president knows the argument that can be made against him, and he’s scared,” Pelosi told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos. “And so he’s trying to divert attention from that to where [he’s] standing in the way of legislation,” she said. “You say he’s scared … Did you hear the fear in his...

    WASHINGTON — White House officials were scrambling Thursday to figure out how to counter the House Democrats' impeachment inquiry, with one source familiar with the situation describing a sense of “total panic” over the past week at the lack of a plan to address the new reality. There appears to be rising “anxiety, unease, and concern” — as one person close to the White House described the mood in the West Wing — that the whistleblower’s allegations could seriously wound the president and some of those around him. “There’s not a lot of confidence that there’s no there there,” this...

    FULL TITLE: Judge Denies AG’s Request for Gag Order Censoring Pro-Life Reporting on Bogus Trial of David Daleiden A judge has denied the California Attorney General’s Office’s request for a court gag order Tuesday that could prevent the public from learning the truth about David Daleiden’s shocking undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood. Daleiden and Sandra Merritt face 15 politically-motivated felony charges for invasion of privacy in California after they exposed Planned Parenthood’s allegedly illegal sales of aborted baby body parts. Their preliminary hearing began last week with a witness for the abortion industry admitting that the Center for Medical Progress...
  • Andrew McCabe irks some CNN colleagues: ‘I have no sympathies for him‘

    CNN contributor Andrew McCabe is making waves at the cable news network after a U.S. attorney on Thursday recommended moving ahead with potential charges against the FBI honcho-turned-pundit. Some CNN staffers were reportedly aghast when the network hired McCabe in late August, simply because he'd been fired from the FBI for lying. Now that charges against McCabe are seemingly looming, some of the shock has turned to anger and confusion. A current CNN on-air personality told Fox News this week that "it erodes our journalistic credibility to have so many highly anti-Trump, former Obama DOJ/security officials without a semblance of...

    Whenever journalists and other Democrats want to put out a negative article on the economy when the economy looks pretty good, they can always go to Moody's and Mark Zandi.  Now Zandi is pulling numbers out of a hat to say Trump's trade war will cost 450,000 manufacturing jobs by the end of this year and 900,000 by the end of next year. Trump's trade war has killed 300,000 jobs Forecasting firm Moody's Analytics estimates that Trump's trade war with China has already reduced U.S. employment by 300,000 jobs, compared with likely employment levels absent the trade war. That's a...

    We had enough of Communist-loving Sanders when he sang shirtless in Moscow during his ‘honeymoon’. Moscow hasn’t changed since then. And, sadly, neither has Bernie Sanders. For pikers like straight out socialist Senator Bernie Sanders, ‘fair and balanced journalism’ is Pravda all the way. Shirtless while singing ’This Land Is Your Land’ on his honeymoon in Moscow, this DNC-esteemed ‘white man of socialist privilege’ is now singing the ‘What Journalists Should Be’ ballad for an all too-accommodating Columbia Journalism Review (CJR.) A CJR note at the bottom of an op-ed in which Sanders calls for action “to restore the media...

    Well, perhaps not entirely without penalty, but the descriptions we’re seeing in response to Bernie Sanders’ recent accusations against the Washington Post certainly represent a change in tone from when the Bad Orange Man says mean things about the press. So where did this come from? It turns out that Sanders, along with other Democratic 2020 hopefuls are unhappy with some of the coverage they’ve been receiving and are, in some cases, blaming the press for their poor showing in the polls. But Sanders goes several steps further, building a conspiracy theory involving Jeff Bezos. (The Hill) The Democratic presidential...

    Donald Trump is like alcohol; he has a way of revealing peoples’ true feelings. And like that coworker at the holiday office party who finally tells everyone what he thinks of them, America’s mainstream media establishment has clearly had a few too many. For decades, members of the media masqueraded as practitioners of objectivity, supposedly uninterested in politics or policy. But the truth always comes out, and when they could no longer conceal their bias we were assured that it was possible to pick sides privately while remaining objective professionally. Now, in the age of Orange Man Bad, everything...

    EL ROSARIO, Honduras — On a late winter evening, the people of this remote village walked out of their tin-roofed houses and headed to the local health clinic, a small, brightly painted building that has become a lifeline and a community gathering place. Worry crossed their faces as they crammed onto wooden benches outside the clinic, shuffling dust-covered cowboy boots and plastic sandals. They had come with questions. Last year, farmers here watched helplessly as drought withered their corn and bean crops for a fifth straight year. With nothing to sell and no food supplies to feed their families, they’ve...

    Reading Jim Acosta's new book "Enemy of the People" is like watching a train wreck in progress, with passengers bracing for the inevitable crash. Friends and critics agree we have never seen a president like Donald J. Trump, whose disdain, even contempt and apparent hatred for many members of the press is almost daily on display. Acosta cites instance after instance when this President and many of his staff show that they are bent on interfering with the ability of reporters to bring the public an accurate account of the administration's stewardship. For most of his adult life, President Trump...
  • NYU Nixes Journalism Class About Dealing With the “Far Right” Over Lack of Interest

    New York University has cancelled a class entitled “Reporting on the Far Right” after only two students signed up for the elective course. The course was scheduled to be taught by former New Yorker fact-checker Talia Lavin. Lavin resigned from the magazine last year after a Twitter dust-up surrounding her mistakenly identifying the tattoo of a wheelchair-bound ICE agent as a Nazi cross. Lavin later deleted the tweet and sort of apologized for her mistake. “Some vets said this ICE agent’s tattoo looked more like a Maltese Cross than an Iron Cross (common among white supremacists), so I deleted my...

    New York University has canceled a "Reporting on the Far Right" elective undergraduate class after just two students signed up to take the course. NYU attracted headlines earlier this year after its decision to hire former New Yorker fact-checker Talia Lavin to teach the class. In June 2018, Lavin resigned from the magazine after making a false accusation against ICE agent Justin Gaertner for sporting what she believed was a Nazi tattoo, which turned out to be a 'Titan 2' symbol for former Marine veteran's platoon while serving in Afghanistan. “Canceling the class had nothing to do with Talia’s writings,...

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, attacked President Trump Thursday night as being “un-American” after Trump announced he was authorizing Attorney General William Barr to declassify and release documents related to Obama administration and Deep State spying on Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. Schiff accused Trump and Barr of conspiring to “weaponize law enforcement and classified information against their political enemies”, which are the very things done to Trump by the Obama administration and the Deep State that Barr has been tasked by Trump to investigate. Schiff posted to Twitter: “While Trump stonewalls the public from...

    End of title: and a paid pundit'CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s upcoming book has raised eyebrows both inside and outside of the network’s newsroom. The outspoken Acosta is being criticized by insiders and academics alike for further blurring the line between being an unbiased reporter, or a commentator "pushing his personal perspectives." ~snip~ One current CNN employee told Fox News that threats to the free press should obviously be taken seriously and reporters need to seek the truth and report it – but Acosta may no longer be right for the job. “Jim Acosta is, a lot of times,...
