    ABC News aired a video on Sunday that host Tom Llamas said depicted a Turkish attack in northern Syria against Kurdish civilians. Turkey is indeed pushing into Syria and slaughtering Kurds along the way, but the video ABC News played last night is from a military gun demonstration in Kentucky that was published to YouTube in 2017. “This video, right here, appearing to show Turkey’s military bombing Kurd civilians in a Syrian border town,” Llamas said on the October 13 broadcast as the video played.

  • Why Pelosi Doesn't Need a Full House Vote for an Impeachment Inquiry, Despite Trump's Demand

    President Donald Trump confirmed Friday that he intends to send a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) stating that, until the full House votes to authorize the chamber's ongoing impeachment inquiry, the administration will not comply with subpoenas and other demands for witness testimony and documents. Trump and Republicans—who've been daring Pelosi to vote on the matter—believe that such a move would put vulnerable swing state Democrats in a tough spot and force members to more officially go on the record, as all but a handful of House Democrats support an impeachment inquiry into Trump. The White House has...

    CNBC ^ | October 4, 2019 | Jake Novak
    No matter where you turn, the news is filled with embarrassing stuff about President Trump. The CIA whistleblower complaint about his conduct on a call with Ukraine’s president has turned into a full-court impeachment scandal. But through all of this, Trump’s approval rating is at its highest level of the year according to the Hill-HarrisX survey, and the other major polls taken since this Ukraine phone call whistleblower story emerged show few changes from the last surveys taken before the news broke. How is this possible? Anyone still asking that question simply hasn’t come to terms with why Donald Trump...

    A federal judge in New York has ordered billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson to pay compensatory damages and legal fees to the National Jewish Democratic Council for using “legal sadism” to disband the organization. The NJDC now exists in name only as it works to recover its debts from its legal battle with Adelson that began in 2012. […] Adelson had sued the National Jewish Democratic Council in 2012 over an online petition alleging that the major Republican donor allowed prostitution at his casino in Macau. The petition included a hyperlink to an Associated Press article carrying allegations against Adelson....

    President Trump said Wednesday that his controversial July call with his Ukrainian counterpart was transcribed “word-for-word, comma-for-comma,” an assertion that fueled growing questions about the nature and completeness of an official memorandum about the call released by the White House last week. “This is an exact word-for-word transcript of the conversation, taken by very talented stenographers,” Trump said. White House officials previously had portrayed the document as not a verbatim transcription but rather a summary that closely tracked the words the president used in his July 25 call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky. They said it was being released in...
  • FRENZY: Nets Devote 7 Hours To Trump-Ukraine, Only 46 Minutes to Hunter Biden Sweetheart Deal

    MRC ^ | 10/01/9 | Geoffrey Dickens
    In just ten days (September 20 through September 30) the broadcast networks overwhelmed their evening and morning shows with more than 7 hours of coverage devoted to a whistleblower’s complaint about President Donald Trump’s phone call with Ukranian president Volodymyr Zelensky and the ensuing calls for impeachment. Only 46 minutes of that coverage referenced Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden’s sweetheart deal with a Ukranian company. Even when networks mentioned Trump’s concern about Hunter benefiting from his father’s status as Vice President, they were quick to dismiss the allegations with the refrain: “no evidence of any wrongdoing.” See montage video below:On the September 23 edition of ABC’s World News Tonight correspondent Jon...

    Newsbusters ^ | September 30, 2019 | P.J. Gladnick
    In this episode of Politico Magazine Drama Queen Theater, we present the dilemma of Mikie Sherrill,  a "centrist" Democrat congresswoman representing New Jersey, and "former Navy helicopter pilot," and "former federal prosecutor," deciding to throw caution to the winds and impeach Donald Trump to repeal the 2016 election. Politico senior staff writer (and wannabe playwright) Michael Kruse penned a piece on Friday with the appropriately melodramatic title of, "‘It Feels Like a 1776 Kind of Fight’." Although he described Sherrill as "characteristically measured" and "unflappable," this is a tale of thick, shaky voices, quivering chins, unsuppressed sniffles, and dampened hankies. Oh,...

    There will be such an outpouring of sewage that no one stays clean. The 2020 election is going to be a real doozy. If you thought that the hacking, vicious memes, rumor-mongering, Russian interference and FBI blundering was bad last time, just wait. No matter who wins, the question of whether the outcome was fair or even accurate will arise, for partisans on the losing side and conspiracy theorists, but also for any reasonably objective person who’s watching. It’s likely, in other words, that the result of the 2020 election, particularly if it ends up close, will have little credibility....
  • He Continues – Rudy Giuliani Wrecks ABC’s Narrative Engineer George Stephanopoulos

    09/29/2019 7:19:11 PM PDT · by MarvinStinson · 44 replies
    Remember, in the deep & factional political weeds George Stephanopoulos is ‘team Cinton’. Team Obama are exposed in the Biden-Ukraine pay-to-play scandal. The aspect that exposes Team Clinton is the FBI false construct of the vast Russian conspiracy with Crowdstrike, DNC server hacking and the Ukraine dirt-digging participation for 2016. As a result, Stephanopoulos is more concerned with defending Team Clinton (DNC hack via Crowstrike) than defending Team Obama (Joe Biden selling influence). Giuliani knows the factional nuance; and as a result he immediately side-steps the part of the Ukraine narrative that Stephanopoulos is prepared to defend (Clinton). Instead, Giuliani...

    Back in 2000, Melania Knauss, a Slovenian model dating Donald Trump, began petitioning the government for the right to permanently reside in the United States under a program reserved for people with “extraordinary ability.” Knauss’ credentials included runway shows in Europe, a Camel cigarette billboard ad in Times Square and – in her biggest job at the time – a spot in the swimsuit edition of Sports Illustrated, which featured her on the beach in a string bikini, hugging a six-foot inflatable whale. She also claimed to be a college graduate. In March 2001, she was granted a green card...

    The Federalist ^ | September 23, 2019 | Mollie Hemingway
    Every single assertion of this paragraph isn't just wrong, but the opposite of right. In each sentence, Trump is being blamed for things his political opponents have done. ABC News’ White House correspondent Karen Travers approvingly tweeted out a paragraph of a front-page Washington Post rant written by Philip Rucker, Robert Costa, and Rachel Bade. The paragraph comes from their cri de coeur headlined “Trump’s Ukraine Call Reveals A President Convinced Of His Own Invincibility.”[snip] " Trump’s sense of himself as above the law has been reinforced throughout his time in office."

    A New York Times staff meeting transcript shows the rot of bias at the Times is far beyond the pale and there is no hope of recovery. The Gray Lady is dead, her homicide an inside job. Ringleader is executive editor Dean Baquet, who fires the fatal shot into the credibility of his paper. By giving reporters and editors license to try to stop Donald Trump from becoming president Baquet helped unleash the ­hatred that is tearing America apart. Never before has a single media institution played such a destructive role in the nation’s life. The meeting shows Baquet is...

    The hashtag #EmptySeatMAGATour dominated Twitter on Friday as Trump haters took to the social media network to poke fun at several empty seats that appeared on camera during the president’s Thursday night “Keep America Great” campaign rally in Manchester, New Hampshire. It was quite a virtual party - albeit not nearly as fun as a real-life Trump rally - and some of the biggest NeverTrump names were there, obnoxiously chortling at the president’s supposed inability to draw a crowd these days.“Trump keeps saying his rallies are full, but doesn’t look like it,” tweeted Trump-hating blogger Tony Posnanski. “Wow, I would hate for #EmptySeatMAGATour...

    The number of U.S. voters who see white nationalism as a threat is greater today than five months ago, according to a new poll.Forty-seven percent of voters said they perceive white nationalism as a threat, according to a Morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday and taken in the days after a mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, last weekend. It’s a 10-point increase from March, when 37 percent of voters said white nationalism was a threat in poll that followed the New Zealand mosque shootings. The gunman in the New Zealand attack, which killed 51 people, allegedly wrote a manifesto filled...

    Suburban women recoil as Trump dives into racial politics ROOKFIELD, Wis. (AP) — Carol Evans approves of Donald Trump’s immigration policy. She gives him credit for the strong economy. But the Republican from the affluent Milwaukee suburbs of Waukesha County, a GOP bedrock in the state, just can’t commit to voting for the president next year like she did in 2016. “I just don’t like the way he talks about other people,” Evans, a 79-year-old retired data entry supervisor, said recently as she walked through a shopping mall in Brookfield, Wisconsin, days after Trump fired off a racist tweet at...
