  • Florida Gov. Scott Says Fellow Republicans Spreading 'Fake News'

    02/22/2017 7:23:19 PM PST · by nickcarraway · 3 replies
    Florida Gov. Rick Scott is now saying that his fellow Republicans in the Florida House are using "fake news" to justify their plan to scrap the state's economic development agency. Scott used his campaign Twitter account on Wednesday to distribute a video critical of House Speaker Richard Corcoran and House Republicans. The video labels Corcoran a "career politician" who wasted money by having the House produce a video that trashed programs championed by Scott.

    RUSH: I’ve had something very interesting happen to me (I’d say the four or five times here) since yesterday’s big broadcast. You know what it is? I’m actually having people tell me they’re getting tired of all this news bashing Trump. Not that they’re worried about it. That they are tired of it. That it is beginning to bore them. That, to me, is a profoundly good sign. In the old days of the Republicans, you would never have heard that. You would have heard people say, “My gosh, when are they gonna fight back? My gosh, when are they...

    There was a great commotion in central London last night. A police helicopter hovered over The Spectator‘s office making a din, police sirens sounded and thudding music rattled the windows. I found out why when I left the office and walked via Parliament Square to Whitehall.There was an anti-Trump protest outside Parliament – #stoptrump was the theme – coinciding with the (non-binding and pointless) debate inside Westminster Hall, about President Trump’s state visit to the UK later this year. The protest was a very slick affair. There was a massive TV screen broadcasting anti-Trump videos, and speeches blared out over a speaker...

    President Trump, in his extraordinary press conference last week, called out the media for its brazenly biased reporting. In the 77-minute presser, he dissected their stories, called out the incessant tone of “anger” and “hatred” and clearly enunciated his view that the Trump White House is running just fine, no thanks to them. And the new alpha wolf in town smacked the lapdog media repeatedly on the nose with a rolled-up newspaper. “Well, the failing New York Times wrote a big, long front-page story yesterday. And it was very much discredited, as you know. It was — it’s a joke,”...

Post spokesperson Kris Coratti told CNN that readers should expect to see more of it on other platforms of the publication. "We thought it would be a good, concise value statement that conveys who we are to the many millions of readers who have come to us for the first time over the last year," Coratti said last week. "We started with our newest readers on Snapchat, and plan to roll it out on our other platforms in the coming weeks."

    One of President Trump’s signature issues — and one continually fact-checked by the mainstream media — is lowering crime rates in our major cities. “Look at what’s happening in Chicago — hundreds of shootings, hundreds of deaths. I’ll tell you what’s happening in Chicago, and many other places,” Mr. Trump told a Florida rally last week regarding the country’s crime rates. The New York Times was quick to call the statement part of what Mr. Trump “got wrong” during his speech.
  • Trump Is Beating the Media at Its Own Game

    For years journalists opined self-servingly under the guise of objectivity and got away it because Republicans were too afraid to shatter that illusion of objectivity. They permitted the media to serve as the arbiter of what qualifies as “mainstream,” “extremist,” “racist,” and so forth, and made sure to stay within the media-determined parameters of any discussion. Donald Trump has blown up that absurd arrangement and is beating the media at its own game. He labels reporters in the same way that they label him. He upends their dishonest framing of debates by treating them as what they are, liberal partisans....

    Many people are noticing a rather familiar, albeit oddly timed, leftist “anti-Semitism” narrative being pushed into the media broadcasts over the past 36 hours. Yes, it seems to have come out of no-where. Why? No-one is really understanding what’s going on. Understandably, the right-side of the political continuum are referencing the media push from the position of their own camp; that makes them defensive. However, the actual motive of the professional corporate media to push this meme has nothing to do with President Trump or republicans – it’s an internal maneuver and transparently Clintonian. {..snip..}

Concerning the latter, Trump said no such thing, nor did he "suggest" it. Concerning the former, if Sweden's not in crisis, it had a funny way of showing it Monday night, as there were riots in Stockholm. This is exactly what Trump said on Saturday: You look at what's happening in Germany, you look...

The latest Gallup poll released Saturday local time shows that Trump only had a 40 percent approval rating, 21 percentage points below the average rating for presidents in their first month in office. Trump said that "any negative poll is fake news," but analysts believe he does care about the results. Trump's first month in the Oval Office can only be described as bumpy.

    Folks, take a deep breath. That unusual faint sweet aroma in the air is called “freedom.” It is coming back. For eight years, even those who are politically clueless subconsciously felt their freedoms slipping away. Americans instinctively knew that publicly expressing religious beliefs, principles and traditional norms once considered mainstream could cost them everything today. My wife Mary's mentor, the late Mary Kay Ash of MK Cosmetics said, “The speed of the leader is the speed of the gang.” In other words, the leader sets the tone. Unarguably, President Obama set a you-had-better-keep-your-mouth-shut and go-along-with-political-correctness tone for America. We all...

    Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump  60m 60 minutes ago The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People! They aren't the enemy for the left as leftists enjoy praising all networks (except Fox) and adore papers such as The Failing New York Times and The Washington Compost.  A new tactic of leftists is to go the Twitter feeds of whiny political reporters like Jim Acosta (who literally had a drawing a "fan" gave him showing him with tape over his mouth as though he has been silenced).  They...

    If you thought yesterday's press conference was "ranting and raving", it appears President Trump just turned the anti-'Fake news'-media amplifier up to '11', declaring CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS , The New York Times (yet not The Washington Post) as "enemies of the American people". [the tweet] Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People! 1:48 PM - 17 Feb 2017 16,365 Retweets 48,638 likes {..snip..}

    As reported by AOL, Mr. Trump’s most recent trip to Mar-a-Lago over the long holiday weekend could cost as much as $3 million for Mr. Trump’s third straight weekend at the Mar-a-Lago resort. The Washington Post notes Mr. Trump’s previous words published on Twitter, wherein President Trump criticized President Obama’s vacations in the past - that is, prior to Mr. Trump becoming president himself. [Snip] In the meantime, the cost and frequency of Mr. Trump’s trips to Palm Beach to spend time at his members-only Mar-a-Log club continues to come under a microscope on social media. First Lady Melania Trump...
  • Brian Williams: Trump Attacking Media Because When You Reduce .. Prestige, It Diminishes the Facts..

    n Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The 11th Hour,” anchor Brian Williams argued President Trump’s criticisms of the media were “Because when you reduce the media enough in prestige, they — when they do report facts, those facts are diminished.” During a discussion on Trump’s press conference earlier in the day, USA Today Senior Politics Reporter Heidi Przybyla stated, “[T]he press provided basically the most essential task that the Founders intended for us to do, which was, we outed a public official, who was lying to the public, about the nature of his contacts about what many would define as a...

    Buried deep beneath the Michael Flynn hysteria this week was Judicial Watch’s release of newly obtained State Department documents related to the Benghazi terrorist attack on September 11, 2012. One email confirms—again—that the Obama administration knew the day after the attack it was not a random act of violence stemming from an anti-Muslim video. That was the excuse shamefully propagated by top Obama administration officials (including the president himself) and swallowed whole by a media establishment desperate to help Obama win re-election six weeks later.According to the summary of a call on September 12, 2012 between State Department Under-Secretary Patrick...

    This is getting a bit out of hand: Chuck Todd fears that President Trump is “delegitimizing” the media while carrying water for the latest Democratic Party conspiracy proffered in order to delegitimize the President. Behold the fully-hatched Great Russian Conspiracy: The so-called scandal involving former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn is 9/11, Pearl Harbor, Iran-Contra, Watergate, proof of presidential fascism, a cynical money-making scheme, and a pro-Russian spy thriller all rolled into one, according to the increasingly deranged rants of howling left-wingers and their truth-adverse confederates in the mainstream media. – Frontpage As you may have expected Trump, being Trump, pushed...

    On Friday, President Trump and his entourage will jet for the third straight weekend to a working getaway at his oceanfront Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Fla. On Saturday, Trump’s sons Eric and Don Jr., with their Secret Service details in tow, will be nearly 8,000 miles away in the United Arab Emirates, attending the grand opening of a Trump-brand golf resort in the “Beverly Hills of Dubai.”
  • Will a Judge's Ruling Against CNN Make It Easier to Sue the Media?

    A defamation suit is allowed to survive in a defeat not only for the cable news network, but also for the MPAA. Donald Trump probably doesn't know about it, but the guy who once said he wanted to open up libel laws will probably be quite pleased by a new ruling from a Georgia federal judge. In fact, the stakes in this case are so high we wouldn't be surprised if it eventually lands before the U.S. Supreme Court and potentially makes it easier to sue entertainment and media outlets. There's a reason why the Motion Picture Association of America...

    Have the Democrats turned working class middle America against them just like the Whig Party? I know many Trump supporters who are quietly going about their day-to-day business, working 40 - 50 hours a week, paying bills and trying to keep afloat and move their lives forward. However, they are keenly aware of what is happening on the left. The violent (paid) protest, the stupid pussy hats, the suppression of free speech, and the all around anarchy that has happened in places like Berkeley, CA has not gone unnoticed. These Trump voters would like nothing better than to send the...
