  • Economy bigger priority than punishing Russia: AP poll

    05/24/2022 11:34:07 AM PDT · by JonPreston · 46 replies
    Americans are becoming less supportive of punishing Russia for launching its invasion of Ukraine if it comes at the expense of the U.S. economy, a sign of rising anxiety over inflation and other challenges, according to a new poll.The shifts in opinion reflect how rising prices are biting into American households — surging costs for gas, groceries, and other commodities have strained budgets for millions of people — and perhaps limiting their willingness to support Ukraine financially. That may be a troubling sign for President Joe Biden, who on Saturday approved an additional $40 billion in funding to help Ukraine

    link to Africa, where the disease is most commonly found, said the officials, who spoke without being identified as a condition of participating in the call. While the risk to the general public is low, health workers are being alerted to monitor possible cases and use protective equipment when needed, they said. Unlike the COVID-19 virus, which is spread through the air and respiratory droplets, spreading monkeypox requires much closer contact. Sharing bedding, clothing or a toothbrush with an infected person would create greater risk, the officials said on the call. In Massachusetts, where the one US case has been...
  • Sen. Ted Cruz Calls Out Google For Sending GOP Emails to Spam

    05/22/2022 4:31:08 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 31 replies ^ | May 20, 2022 | Sarah Arnold
    Liberal media companies are notorious for censoring information that doesn’t fit their agenda, Google is no exception. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) called for a meeting with Google amid a recent study that found the company was unfairly filtering GOP lawmakers’ emails to be hidden in spam folders. After the meeting, Cruz told Politico that the tech giant purposely ignored Republican senators’ questions regarding Gmail’s alleged suppression of conservative political candidates’ emails. “Google deflected, refused to provide any data, repeatedly refused to answer direct questions.” According to the study, Gmail marked 59.3 percent more emails from the right as spam than...
  • Hillary Clinton’s Trump/Russia media strategy revealed

    Yesterday morning we saw the continued testimony of former FBI general counsel James Baker and Hillary Clinton Campaign manager Robby Mook. (As we previously observed, Mook had already admitted to being briefed on “general updates concerning” Fusion GPS findings - though he has denied knowing who Fusion GPS was.) I’m traveling this weekend and can’t do the deepest dive into yesterday’s testimony - including that of the CIA agent in the afternoon session - but here are the highlights from Baker and Mook. The Baker examination, continued. Baker testified that Sussman did not notify him that the discredited Trump-Russia Alfa...

    Our mini-documentary on Nicolle Wallace's extraordinary record is now available for viewing on our Substack: This trailer, by Matt Orfalea, is here, and he also produced the full video. From her days as a professional liar for the Bush/Cheney White House and 2004 campaign, now as a beloved-by-liberals MSNBC host, Nicolle Wallace has for two decades been the Typhoid Mary of Disinformation. Nobody spreads official campaigns of deceit and lies more casually, frequently, aggressively or destructively than she.

    Clinton's former campaign manager said he took the idea of leaking Trump-Russia allegations to multiple senior campaign officials.WASHINGTON, D.C. — Former Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook testified Friday that then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton approved the dissemination of materials alleging a covert communications channel between the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa Bank to the media, despite campaign officials not being "totally confident" in the legitimacy of the data. Mook was called to the stand for testimony by Michael Sussmann’s defense Friday. During cross-examination by government prosecutor Andrew DeFillippis Friday, Mook was asked about the campaign’s understanding of the Alfa Bank...
  • In Budapest, Hungary’s Viktor Orban tells CPAC conservatives to have own media to retain power

    Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orban has said that the only way to remain in power is to have your own media outlet and to tackle the “insanity of the progressive left.” His comments came during a special conference of the US Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Budapest’s Balnaconference centre. Orbán, who was recently elected to a fourth term, laid out a 12-point blueprint to achieving and consolidating power under the slogan “God, Homeland, Family”. He claimed that the US media— CNN, the New York Times and others—is largely dominated by “Leftist” Democrats and called for shows like right-wing aligned...

    The New York Times had a cow over the apparent demise of President Joe Biden’s Disinformation Governance Board and painted it as a victim of — wait for it — disinformation. Times “veteran” foreign and national security correspondent Steven Lee Meyers published an asinine story headlined: “A Panel to Combat Disinformation Becomes a Victim of It.” Meyers mourned that the Department of Homeland Security was “suspending the work” of the DGB “intended to combat disinformation after what the department described as a deliberate disinformation campaign.” According to Meyers’ lament, “the fiercest denunciations came from the right,” which included correct characterizations...

    This week, a racist mass shooter massacred 10 people and wounded three others at a Buffalo, New York, supermarket. The shooter was a white supremacist; his hate-filled 180-page screed about why he had committed the shooting was replete with neo-Nazi sentiments. According to the shooter, he had to slaughter innocent black Americans in order to prevent the white population of the United States from being crowded out. "We are experiencing an invasion on a level never seen before in history," wrote the perverse murderer. "This is ethnic replacement. This is cultural replacement. This is racial replacement. This is WHITE GENOCIDE."...

    The Associated Press is well known — and rightfully so — for writing long, detailed articles on “what it all means.” They’re called “thumbsuckers” in the news business, and the AP has perfected them.A thumbsucker article presupposes that the reader is an ignorant rube and needs to be guided from Point A to Point B of a topic in order to have it explained to them. The problem for the reader is that the AP reporter writing the story — or most other mainstream reporters writing the story — almost always allows his or her own bias to permeate the...

    Liberals are falsely blaming Fox News host Tucker Carlson for inspiring the Buffalo mass shooter who killed ten and wounded three others in an apparent racist attack. The alleged shooter who was taken into custody at the scene of the massacre–a Tops grocery store located in a Black neighborhood–is an 18-year-old white male according to police. .... Snip...... Carlson and Fox were defended by conservative judicial activist Mike Davis, “Disgusting and insane that Democrat operatives are already exploiting the murder of 10 by blaming Tucker Carlson and Fox News.

    I’ve written about Zac Kriegman before. He’s a former Director of Data Science for Reuters who was fired after he challenged some of the assumptions behind the claims made by Black Lives Matter proponents. Today, Bari Weiss published Kriegman’s first hand account of how he changed his mind about BLM and what happened when he brought those concerns to his co-workers in the form of a 12,000 word argument posted on an internal discussion board. In 2020, I started to witness the spread of a new ideology inside the company. On our internal collaboration platform, the Hub, people would post...
  • ‘Ink-Stained Wretch’ at NYT Claims ‘Good Times Are Right Now’ for ‘Tens of Millions of Americans'

    It’s the Roaring ‘20s once more. That’s what The New York Times claimed as high gas prices, 40-year record inflation and a border crisis dominate the lives of ordinary Americans. “For Tens of Millions of Americans, the Good Times Are Right Now,” claimed the newspaper. Times technology writer David Streitfield pretended Americans haven’t seen an economy this glorious in over 50 years. “For the 158 million who are employed, prospects haven’t been this bright since men landed on the moon.” Those prospects are so “bright” that CNN reported total compensation costs — which “includes the wages employers pay plus health,...

    The New York Times has been alarmed by the existence of the Fox News Channel since it debuted in 1996. It developed a special fear and loathing of Bill O'Reilly when he hosted the top show in cable news. And now the paper is at it again, attacking Tucker Carlson. On Sunday and Monday, the Times published almost 20,000 words of "investigative reporting" on Carlson's show "Tucker Carlson Tonight," announcing they'd watched 1,150 episodes and chronicled all the guests and the messages and the monologues. This should be defined as "opposition research." The overwrought thesis of Times reporter Nicholas Confessore,...

    Special counsel John Durham has revealed that employees of the research firm Fusion GPS sent journalists hundreds of emails with unverified accusations against President Trump to trigger negative news stories. Mr. Durham was responding to efforts of people with ties to Hillary Clinton‘s presidential campaign to keep potentially explosive evidence out of his hands during the upcoming trial of a Clinton campaign lawyer accused of lying to the FBI. In a court motion filed late Monday, Mr. Durham said the slew of emails undercuts the assertion of Clinton campaign officials that Fusion GPS’s research for them should be protected under...

    Today's Morning Joe didn't merely report on Donald Trump stumbling over the name "J.D. Vance," the candidate he's endorsed in the Ohio Republican Senate primary—it led the show with it! And in a moment of clueless hypocrisy, Joe Scarborough said: "You know if the current occupant at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue had done that, there would be headlines for, like, months." Ridiculous! If Biden had done that, one place you can be virtually certain there'd be no coverage, let alone show-leading headlines, would be . . . Morning Joe.

    A CNN talking head declared Sunday that if Elon Musk is allowed to buy Twitter, the platform will have to be government regulated to prevent ‘discourse’ being open and free, and not subject to establishment controlled censorship. While discussing the Musk take-over on CNN’s potato time with Brain Stelter, “media analyst” David Zurawik proclaimed that Musk is “dangerous” and shouldn’t be allowed to restore free speech on the platform. Zurawik suggested that the U.S. look to Europe, which has recently brought in new laws to limit social media, and even threatened to ban Twitter if Musk doesn’t play ball. “There’s...
