  • FAKE NEWS: Media declares 'boogaloo' a fringe term used by hate groups in dual attack on the First and Second Amendments

    02/21/2020 5:39:24 PM PST · by MassMinuteman · 54 replies
    Relying heavily on a report by the Network Contagion Research Institute (NCRI), NBC News published this article Thursday that defines ‘boogaloo’ as a fringe term used by an “anti-government movement that advocates for a violent uprising targeting liberal political opponents and law enforcement.” It breathlessly warns that the “new and discreet” term has moved from the “fringes of the internet into the mainstream” — they're scared, and you should be too. Forget if you can that the article (quite revealingly) equates “anti-government” to “pro-Second Amendment,” and let's just focus on what has to be the underlying message: words equal violence....

    Bernie Sanders went ballistic at NBC and MSNBC execs ahead of the Democratic debate this week — jabbing one top TV exec repeatedly in the face with his finger and accusing the networks of offensive negative coverage. Surging Sanders stormed through the walk-through for the Las Vegas debate, singling out one top producer at the end and aggressively sticking his finger in his face. One shocked witness said, “Bernie marched right up to NBC and MSNBC’s head of creative production and began jabbing his finger right in his face, yelling, ‘Your coverage of my campaign is not fair . . .

    Washington - A counter-terrorism analyst at the US Defense Intelligence Agency pleaded guilty on Thursday to leaking secret information to journalists, including details about foreign countries' weapons systems. Henry Kyle Frese, 31, who was arrested in October, faces a maximum of 10 years in prison when he is sentenced in June, the Department of Justice said in a statement. It detailed how Frese had leaked information to two unnamed journalists, one of whom he lived with, in 2018 and 2019. The journalists involved appeared to work for CNBC and NBC News, according to US media. CNBC, citing "sources with direct...

    NBC’s medical drama New Amsterdam had an unusual diagnosis this Tuesday in the episode, “Sabbath.” After Dr. Helen Sharpe finds her 13-year-old patient Cephas has four benign tumors growing in his stomach and that the boy has elevated levels of stress hormones, psychiatrist Dr. Iggy Frome determines the tumors were caused by racism. As the surgeon operates and removes the four tumors from Cephas, he warns the tumors could come back and might not be benign next time. Iggy realizes Cephas feels isolated and threatened all the time after asking him a series of questions that measures a person’s level...
  • White House considering tax incentive for more Americans to buy stocks, sources say

    WASHINGTON - As part of a forthcoming package of proposed tax cuts, the White House is considering ways to incentivize U.S. households to invest in the stock market, according to four senior administration officials familiar with the discussions. The proposal, one of many new tax cuts under consideration, would see a portion of household income treated as tax-free for the purposes of investing outside a traditional 401(k). Under one scenario, a household earning up to $200,000 could invest $10,000 tax-free, although officials noted these numbers are fluid. "Nothing's ruled out," said one senior administration official. "Nothing's been ruled in, either."...
  • Liberal media reaction to Michael Avenatti conviction slammed as ‘Orwellian,’ ‘appalling’

    Some members of the mainstream media have issued mea culpas for building up now-disgraced attorney Michael Avenatti, while others have shirked responsibility and some have even blamed President Trump – but it all falls flat for critics who watched his rise from lawyer for a porn star to potential Democratic presidential candidate. Avenatti, who represented adult film actress Stormy Daniels in a lawsuit against President Trump, appeared on CNN and MSNBC a combined 229 times over two years, according to the Media Research Center. CNN’s Brian Stelter was Avenatti’s biggest cheerleader, once declaring that he was a “serious” contender to...

    The breakout star of the New Hampshire primary was not Amy Klobuchar (horse whinny) who finished third among Democrats. MSNBC afternoon anchor Katy Tur seized the day, said dumb things, and grabbed the spotlight. Tur has drawn a lot of attention -- all of it negative, but there is no such thing as bad publicity. RedState reported, "MSNBC’s Katy Tur is perhaps most famous for proclaiming journalists are like firefighters, because after all, reading from a teleprompter and writing articles is totally like risking one’s life to go into a burning building. It was at that moment that the media’s...

    MSNBC’s Joy Reid said Tuesday on her network’s New Hampshire primary coverage that to defeat President Donald Trump, the 2020 Democratic nominee will have to “fight like a Republican.” Reid pointed to former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg because “he is a Republican, or used to be, anyway.” Reid said, “He still sounds like a Republican to a lot of people. So it’s a weird coalition.... (snip) (Reid) continued, “I know Republicans who — they don’t mind the fiscal policies of Trump. They like that, but they also want to sleep at night. If you’re a Republican and still...

    A guest on Todd's MSNBC show this evening was University of New Hampshire Professor Dante Scala. As they discussed the possibility of mediocre turnout, Scala described the Dem contenders as "B-level," and Todd seconded that emotion. DANTE SCALA: I think that the problem is that Democrats here in New Hampshire, when all is said and done, they're saying this looks like a B-level field of candidates.CHUCK TODD: Dante just used the, you actually just used the perfect, B-level, Jason . . . It feels like there’s no star.Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    VIDEO Right now in 2020, much of the media is showing incredible love for Mitt Romney. Why? Because he was the only Republican in the Senate to vote to convict President Trump during the impeachment trial. However, contrast this new found love for Romney to the disdain and hate they had for him in 2012 when he ran against their Obama Messiah. In this video we take a look at the laughably contradictory views taken by MSNBCers Chris Matthews, Lawrence O'Donnell, and Joe Scarborough towards Romney in the years 2020 versus 2012. It seems that if you oppose Trump,...

    If House Democrats are unsure how to move forward post-impeachment, President Donald Trump's unhinged performances last week at the National Prayer Breakfast and in the East Room of the White House should provide some clarity. Trump unleashed a stream-of-consciousness tirade Thursday, using inflammatory words like "scum," "sleazebags" and "crooked" to describe his perceived enemies. This was Trump uncensored and uninhibited, seemingly liberated from the confines of impeachment and determined to exact revenge on his public list of enemies. It was a demonstration of remarkable pettiness but also a warning that if he is left unchecked, there are few boundaries he...

    SOUTH JORDAN, Utah — Republican Sen. Mitt Romney's vote to convict President Donald Trump on one count of abuse of power didn't bother Kelsey Malin. "I have kind of come to terms that even though he hasn't voted in a way that people say represents his party, the fact that he voted true to his conscience and over his party is a great thing," Malin, 28, said as she entertained her two children at a local library two days after the impeachment trial concluded last week. Malin was not alone. NBC News spoke with dozens of voters in Utah in...

    It didn’t take long to find out what an unleashed Donald Trump looks like — and I’m not referring to his petulant, un-Christian comments at the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday morning or even his toxic, stream-of-subconsciousness victory lap in the East Room of the White House early that afternoon, during which the leader of the free world introduced “top scum” and “bullshit” to the public presidential lexicon. Sure, both performances offered disturbing glimpses into Trump’s very scary emotional state, as if his Twitter feed weren’t enough. But even as he debuted the latest iteration of his angry-victim performance art,...
  • Brokaw on Sanders’ 2020 Chances: ‘Really Hard to See’ How People Will Say ‘I’m for Socialism’

    During the roundtable discussion segment of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” former “Nightly News” anchor Tom Brokaw admitted his skepticism of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) chances at the presidency, especially with the success of the economy. Brokaw said he did not see how anyone would say they were for socialism, given the nation’s current economic position. “I think, Chuck, that frankly among younger voters that’s a possibility for him. But with a strong economy, it’s really hard to see how a lot of people will step up and say, ‘I’m for socialism."

    NBC’s Savannah Guthrie pressed former Vice President Joe Biden during an interview that aired Monday morning on the subject of his son Hunter’s work in Ukraine for Burisma Holdings. When first asked about Hunter’s work in Ukraine, Biden responded that “no one found anything wrong with his dealings with Ukraine, except they say it sets a bad image.” He additionally agreed that it “sets a bad image” when asked about it by Guthrie a second time, noting that even Hunter himself “said that.” However, the former vice president bristled when Guthrie suggested that Hunter was given the position in exchange...

    NBC News Capitol Hill Correspondent Kasie Hunt lost her Delta elite status, and it’s Donald Trump’s fault. [Twitter Image] Regular readers know (and sometimes complain) that I blame President Trump for many things. However if you’re dating problems with SkyMiles, the program really started going down hill in the waning months of Bill Clinton’s second term. And someone should teach Ms. Hunt the trick of just dialing Delta Singapore reservations (+65-6336-3371) to avoid long hold times, 24 hours a day call center in English.

    No, the Des Moines Register Poll did not kill itself. – The leaders in the Democrat Party are now in full-blown panic as The Commie closes in on a win in Iowa. So panicked, in fact, that they almost certainly spiked the final Des Moines Register poll – a tradition for 76 years running – that was to be released on Sunday. The narrative being pushed by the corrupt news media is that the Register, and its co-sponsor, CNN (because of course it’s CNN) decided to scrap the poll because one of the people conducting the poll consistently mispronounced the...

    Chris Heinz and Hunter Biden were friends in business together, each cashing-in on the influence held by their fathers’ John Kerry and Joe Biden. Considering the likelihood Joe Biden was only running for President in order to: (1) shield himself from scrutiny, and (2) establish the cornerstone of the impeachment effort; it makes complete sense for John Kerry to be the participating campaign handler. With Biden’s impeachment usefulness now exhausted by DC engineers, there’s no reason to prop-up his candidacy. He’s dropping like a proverbial rock. However the risk to Biden and Kerry still exists (see Lindsey Graham interview today),...

Sitting in the lobby restaurant of the Renaissance Savery hotel, Kerry was overheard by an NBC News analyst saying "maybe I'm f---ing deluding myself here" and explaining that in order to run, he'd have to step down from the board of Bank of America and...
