  • CNN, MSNBC Freak Over Trump ‘Destroying’ Obama’s ‘Signature’ Climate Policy

    News Busters ^ | 03/28/17 | Scott Whitlock
    Let the freak out begin. MSNBC and CNN on Tuesday went nuclear over Donald Trump’s move to roll back Barack Obama’s “signature” climate policies, whining that the President is “destroying” and “obliterating” the Democrat’s efforts. The CNN graphics department went into overdrive with one biased description reading, “Trump Signs Order Dismantling Obama Climate Record.”    That apparently wasn’t enough because a few minutes later it was changed to this: “Trump takes Hammer to Obama Climate Record.” On MSNBC, Kate Snow fretted that Trump signed “a sweeping new executive order just signed this afternoon instructs the Environmental Protection Agency to...

    Reporters and activists were outraged that White House press secretary Sean Spicer was curt with American Urban Radio Networks correspondent April Ryan during Tuesday's press briefing, and told her to please stop shaking her head. "It seems like you're hellbent on trying to make sure that whatever image you want to tell about this White House stays," Spicer lectured Ryan. "You're asking me a question and I'm going to answer it. Which is the president– I'm sorry, please stop shaking your head again." Spicer's request for Ryan to not shake her head caused an uproar amongst journalists and activists on...

JUST THE FACTS: • The congressional intelligence committee asked Sally Yates to appear and discuss her activity. • Sally Yates asks the DOJ for permission to appear. • The DOJ tells Sally Yates her prior role was acting head of the DOJ a position subject to the authority of the White House; therefore she should ask the White House not the DOJ. • Sally Yates...

    Mainstream Media has truly declared war on those of us who do not watch and agree with them. Sean Hannity of FOX NEWS was interviewed by Ted Koppel of CBS. But instead of playing the whole interview straight through, they hacked it up, leaving out essential parts. They made the interview to express what they wanted it to express. Hannity has thus asked them to play the unedited version straight through, and he is rightfully angry at their manipulation. “Why did Ted cut out my many examples of media bias?,” Hannity asked on Twitter. He’s also asking CBS News release...

Political conflicts become civil wars when one side refuses to accept the existing authority. The left has rejected all forms of authority that it doesn’t control. The left has rejected the outcome of the last two presidential elections won by Republicans. It has rejected the judicial authority of the Supreme Court when it decisions don’t accord with its agenda. It rejects the legislative authority of Congress when it...

This week, the streaming platform unwittingly extended the festivities with a new “family-friendly” filter that was meant to protect kids from seeing sexually-explicit or otherwise age-inappropriate stuff. Not a bad idea—except in addition to hiding Hitler cosplay, it also scrubbed G-rated LGBTQ content. In its original response to the ensuing outcry, YouTube said the restricted mode only applied to videos addressing LGBTQ issues that also included mature subjects like sexuality, health, and politics. But then pop duo/LGBTQ icons Tegan and Sarah came...

    For weeks, rumors have circulated that Obama wiretapped Trump Towers during the 2016 campaign. Moreover, reports from the United States Intelligence community indicated that communications from Trump supporters, the Trump administration, and possibly the President himself, were “incidentally collected.” A careful observant cannot help but note the parallels between the current wiretapping scandal and the Watergate scandal occurrence from 1972. In 1972, Richard Nixon covered up a series of events which would soon become known as the Watergate Scandal. These events included Nixon wiretapping his political foes and using the FBI, CIA, and IRS to investigate groups and persons whom...

It was written by elites to serve the needs of elites. Donald Trump vowed to drain the swamp, but...

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes said on Wednesday that he received new information unrelated to alleged Russian interference, suggesting team members or even Trump himself may have had their identities “unmasked” after communications were intercepted by U.S. intelligence agencies during surveillance of foreign individuals.

    Since the early days of the Cold War, the president of the United States has been known as the "Leader of the Free World." According to several media outlets, this is no longer true. The title originated in the late 1940s after World War II but did not become popular until the early 1950s. The "free world" first consisted of the Allied powers that stood up against the Axis powers during the Second World War. As the Cold War took shape, the free world became non-communist countries, led by the United States, that resisted the Soviet Union and pursued capitalism...

    In the last 36 hours, CNN and the Fox News Channel (FNC) came to blows following a report by CNN media reporter Dylan Byers that FNC host Sean Hannity whipped out a gun and pointed it at Juan Williams following a heated debate last year on the set of his eponymous show.  Since then, both Hannity and Williams vehemently downplayed the story, suggesting no one was harmed. Williams went as far as to slam Byers for making the story “sensationalized – everything was under total control throughout and I never felt like I was put in harm’s way.”“It was...

    Many Donald Trump voters cast their votes for the president because he’s “authentically inauthentic” and serves as a “middle finger” to the mainstream news media, according to NBC’s Chuck Todd. The “Meet the Press” host made those remarks during a recent interview of former Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, who found herself in the national spotlight in 2013 for her efforts filibustering a bill to regulate the Lone Star State’s abortion clinics. Ms. Davis suggested to Mr. Todd that both her failed 2014 gubernatorial run and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential loss can...

    For months, the mainstream media played a game of “Jenga journalism,” building a tower of accusations against Donald Trump, using flimsy, speculative claims of Russian collusion. None of the different pieces of the conspiracy theory could hold up on their own, but journalists — and the Hillary Clinton campaign — treated the pile of Russia innuendo like a real monument. But then Trump made the move that forced them to tug at the foundations of their own illusion, and it crashed. In the past several days, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former Acting Director of the Central...

    The fake news media is reporting that General Michael Flynn was working for Russian firms, giving speeches while making thousands of dollars from foreign governments. The truth is the General Flynn was contracted out by a firm to speak about cyber security as a private citizen. Interestingly, all roads lead to Hillary Clinton having violated the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution.

    Meanwhile don’t count on the mainstream media pulling their thumbs out of their mouths and going after the story so long as the Trump administration is messing with their monopoly on White House pressers It won’t need face recognition to catch agent provocateur operatives behind the Russian conspiracy that President Donald Trump and surrogates were in league with Russia “to steal the election from Hillary Rodham Clinton”, because the provocateur in this case was a specially set-up computer.

    The White House issued a directive to all VA facilities, instructing them to hang a portrait of President Trump, Ed Henry reported this morning. "Fox & Friends" has reported on this all week after Republican congressman and Army veteran Brian Mast hung a portrait of President Trump and Secretary of Veterans Affairs David Shulkin at the West Palm Beach VA Medical Center. The pictures were then taken down by staffers, with one reportedly declaring that President Trump was not his president. Mast and local veterans spoke out against the move, though the management argued there was a protocol for hanging...
