    The Mandalay Bay security guard who disappeared last week moments before he was scheduled to break his silence in television interviews has not been seen since he went to a walk-in health clinic, his union president said. David Hickey of the Security, Police, and Fire Professionals of America (SPFPA) told reporters Friday that he got a text the night before saying Jesus Campos was taken to a UMC Quick Care facility, though he did not specify where or whom the text came from. A spokesperson at the UMC Quick Care, which has eight locations throughout the Las Vegas area, told...

    SACRAMENTO (CBS SF) — California Gov. Jerry Brown warns that catastrophic wildfires will keep ripping through the state as the climate warms. **SNIP** He said a warming climate has contributed to catastrophic wildfires. “That’s the way it is with a warming climate, dry weather and reducing moisture.” said Brown. “These kind of catastrophes have happened and they’ll continue to happen, and we have to be prepared to do everything we can to mitigate.” The governor has positioned himself as a leader in the fight against climate change.

    The New York Slimes, Propaganda Desk ^ | October 9, 2017 | NICHOLAS CONFESSORE and DAISUKE WAKABAYASHI, Disinformationists
    YouTube videos of police beatings on American streets. A widely circulated internet hoax about Muslim men in Michigan collecting welfare for multiple wives. A local news story about two veterans brutally mugged on a freezing winter night. All of these were recorded, posted or written by Americans. Yet all ended up becoming grist for a network of Facebook pages linked to a shadowy Russian company that has carried out propaganda campaigns for the Kremlin, and which is now believed to be at the center of a far-reaching Russian program to influence the 2016 presidential election. A New York Times examination...

    The Outline ^ | September 12, 2017 | Emmett Rensin
    Liberals are getting crushed by the right’s agitprop, and Verrit will not save them. Democrats, and the center-left more broadly, are obsessed with numbers games. They are animated more than anything by facts, by a consensus reached among themselves that they possess an exclusive monopoly on empirical reason. They blurt out facts and stats among one another, devoid of any context but the conviction that if God is not on their side, then reason is, and so long as that’s the case they’re bound to win. It is no surprise, then, that when the world’s most thankless Clinton hype man,...
  • Discredited gun researcher John Lott’s misleading Las Vegas massacre claims are falling apart

    Media Matters ^ | October 3, 2017 | Timothy Johnson
    Discredited gun researcher John Lott attacked strong firearms regulations in a FoxNews.com op-ed with a dishonest comparison between the United States and Europe relating to gun laws and public massacres. Following a mass shooting sniper attack on a Las Vegas country music concert that left 59 dead and more than 500 people wounded, Lott -- a go-to source for conservative misinformation about gun violence following high-profile shootings -- published an opinion piece at FoxNews.com comparing machine gun attacks in Europe versus the United States

    IWB ^ | Robert Carbery
    The propaganda machine is in full force with this latest push toward war with one of our oldest enemies as portrayed by the military industrial complex and those seeking to destroy the presidency of Donald J. Trump. Clinton allies in Hollywood have teamed up with the neoconservative establishment in Washington to do their best to “inform” the public about Russia’s meddling in our election and why it was clearly an act of war. A video recently released by The Committee to Investigate Russia, a group founded by movie director Rob Reiner and necon editor of The Atlantic David Frum, attempts...

    The Senate Budget Committee unveiled a 2018 budget blueprint on Friday that would open the door for a $1.5 trillion tax cut, even as an independent analysis concluded that the plan as offered would far exceed that price tag and overwhelmingly benefit corporations and the rich. The budget resolution could also pave the way to opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska to oil drilling, a hot-button Republican proposal that has languished for decades.

    The number of attacks carried out by white supremacists were “almost triple” those of those carried out by people who identified with groups such as ISIS, said Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri. And government data obtained by The Hill suggests the number of white supremacist attacks compared to those from radical Islamist groups was as many as two to one. “We have had zero hearings on the threat of domestic terrorists and the threat they pose and our response to it,” McCaskill said, explaining there had been a number of hearings about ISIS, but none about white supremacists. But...

    My grandmother likes to tell stories from her career as a journalist in the early decades of the People’s Republic of China. She recalls scrawling down Chairman Mao’s latest pronouncements as they came through loudspeakers and talking with joyous peasants from the newly collectivized countryside. In what was her career highlight, she turned an anonymous candy salesman into a national labor hero with glowing praises for his service to the people. She had grown up in the central province of Hunan, where her father was a landlord. She talks about her mother as a glum housewife who resented her husband...

    NY Post ^ | September 22, 2017 | David Harsanyi
    Late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel has taken to scaremongering, with well-worn Democratic Party talking points regarding health-insurance policy. Between yuks, he occasionally accuses Republicans of being would-be baby killers, which is treated as an important political development because, well, Jimmy Kimmel is famous. This week, the comedian was back to explain why the new Graham-Cassidy Republican “repeal” bill is bad news. There were only two things wrong: Almost everything he said was either completely untrue or highly misleading, and his simplistic emotional appeal was completely disconnected from the real world. The comedian’s interest in policy was sparked by the...

    Steve Sherman and VVFFH are reviewing each episode, pointing out the falsehoods, misrepresentations, outright lies and propaganda as they come up. Here is a summary of the first episode: Segment One: (1945-1959) Fails to mention that Ho Chi Minh was a Comintern (Soviet) agent for nearly 20 years, not a nationalist as portrayed in the documentary. If he was a true nationalist, he would have worked with the other anti-French nationalists (VNQDD, Dai Viet, Catholic, Cao Dai, etc.) instead of betraying them to the French Surete to be imprisoned or killed. He also murdered many anti-French nationalists and Vietnamese patriots...

    Friends of Syria ^ | 15 September 2017
    PART I For three years now, it’s been alleged and that Syrian government forces have systematically used helicopters to drop chlorine gas on civilians in rebel-held areas of the country. Amid repeated efforts to impose new sanctions on Syria over the widely accepted charges, another reminder was dropped on March 25: a direct chlorine attack on an underground hospital in Hama province was said to kill at least two, including a surgeon, Dr. Ali Darwish (photo below). [1] But a critical analysis of the evidence contradicts these allegations in myriad ways. Ongoing open-source research by myself and the community at...

    A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away Superman fought for "Truth, justice and the American way." No more. Now Superman stands for the killing of Americans by illegal aliens and protects them from imaginary bad white men. In the most recent issue of Action Comics, Superman comes to the rescue of a group of illegal aliens -- under attack from a white guy wearing an American flag bandana and waving around a machine gun. The man is reportedly infuriated because the illegal aliens took his job, Hollywood Reporter reports. Superman swoops in and blocks the bullets meant for...

The Last Man on Earth creators have sold single-camera comedy We Can Do Better to ABC. The comedy, which landed at the Disney-owned network with multiple outlets bidding and a significant penalty attached, revolves around a soccer mom who deals with her newly "woke" life in the South as a parent, wife, American citizen and daughter of a hardcore conservative parents.

    How public acceptance of climate change increases after viewing scientific information was the topic of the latest lecture given by Michael Ranney, professor of psychology at the University of California, Berkeley. “The whole world doesn’t want climate change to be true, but climate scientists are banding together saying this is true — this should tell people something,” Ranney said. Ranney and his colleagues have been able to prove that the acceptance of global climate change can increase, no matter the person, with the presence of data. Aida Farough, assistant professor of geology, said as a scientist, she has no doubt...

    AMC has put in development a drama based on Wesley Lowery’s bestselling nonfiction book They Can’t Kill Us All: Ferguson, Baltimore, and a New Era in America’s Racial Justice. It comes from Brad Weston’s Makeready and writer LaToya Morgan (Into the Badlands, Turn: Washington’s Spies). Published in 2016 by Little, Brown & Company, the book was acquired by Makeready last fall. It examines how decades of racially biased policing in segregated neighborhoods with failing schools, crumbling infrastructure and too few jobs has led to the high-profile cases of police brutality in Ferguson, Cleveland, Baltimore and elsewhere and the birth of...

    A group of Alaska teenagers has sent a petition to the state's environmental agency in hopes of tightening climate change policy. The teens' petition calls for the state to reduce carbon emissions, monitor the greenhouse gasses it does emit and come up with a strategy for the future. Seb Kurland, 17, is among the teens fighting for climate change policy. Kurland said she has noticed the landscape around her hometown of Juneau looks different than it did not that long ago — especially because the Mendenhall Glacier is shrinking. "You know, one of the hard things especially about being a...

    Exclusive: ‘The Klingons are going to help us look at certain sides of ourselves and our country’ Star Trek: Discovery will continue the venerated sci-fi tradition of using a fantastic setting to tackle real-world issues — only in a bigger way than any Trek series has done before. The upcoming CBS All Access drama tells the serialized story of a war between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire. The show is set a decade before 1966’s original series — which premiered 51 years ago today — during which the Federation and Klingons were in a Cold War...

    Peter Daou, the prickly pro-Clinton operative, has launched a propaganda rag so shameless it would make Kim Jong Un blush. Who would buy stock in a twice-defeated presidential candidate? If the candidate under question is Hillary Clinton, that zealous buyer would be Peter Daou, one-time rocker, seasoned political blogger, former campaign adviser to John Kerry and Hillary Clinton, ambitious litigant, propagandist and internet entrepreneur. A couple of days ago, Daou launched his self-funded Verrit.com, a slavishly pro-Clinton site (endorsed by Hillary!) to carry on her failed crusade. The derision greeting Verrit is so universal it inspires sympathy for Daou, as...
