  • Lying NBC News Falsely accuses Rush of “Racist Comments”

    NBC Nightly News | 2/17/21 | NBC Nightly News. Lester Holt
    During their brief coverage of Rush’s passing, NBC news just committed journalistic malpractice. Of course, they do this in some fashion almost daily. They claimed that Rush was well known for making “racist and sexist comments”. Then, as an example, they played a tape (while printing the words on screen) of Rush saying: “We need segregated buses.... this is Obama’s America!” Racist ? Really ? Rush was talking about Obama’s statement that “Republicans need to get to the back of the bus.” Rush’s statement had NOTHING to do with race. Obama wanted to segregate us based on our political beliefs....

    Charleston, S.C., Dec 2, 2019 / 03:30 pm (CNA).- Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg quoted the Gospel of Matthew in his first statewide ad in South Carolina, the latest in the candidate’s references to Christianity in his campaign messages. The ad opens with a clip from an Iowa speech Buttigieg gave Nov. 1: “In our White House, you won’t have to shake your head and ask yourself: What ever happened to ‘I was hungry and you fed me; I was a stranger and you welcomed me’,” a reference to Matthew 25:35. The ad will be released on Tuesday in South...

    Alabama Senate Republican nominee Roy Moore gave two interviews in 2011 in which he said the amendments to the U.S. Constitution after the 10th Amendment has caused problems, quoted Hitler and left open the possibility of new evidence behind the cause of the 2001 terror attacks, according to a report Sunday by CNN. CNN said it obtained audio files of the interviews Moore gave with what the network described as "a conspiracy-driven radio show" known as the Aroostook Watchmen show, which was hosted by two Maine residents. CNN posted three of the audio clips on its website. In 2011, when...

    1. On the expansion of slavery: Lincoln said: There is a natural disgust in the minds of nearly all white people to the idea of indiscriminate amalgamation of the white and black races ... A separation of the races is the only perfect preventive of amalgamation, but as an immediate separation is impossible, the next best thing is to keep them apart where they are not already together. If white and black people never get together in Kansas, they will never mix blood in Kansas ... 2. On shipping blacks back to Africa: Lincoln said: In the language of Mr....

    Republican Donald Trump says he'd be fine with Caitlyn Jenner using the bathroom of her choice at Trump Tower. (AP File Photo) (CNSNews.com) - Republican Donald Trump, appearing on Thursday's "Today" show, said transgenders should be allowed to "use the bathroom that they feel is appropriate." "So if Caitlyn Jenner were to walk into Trump Tower and want to use the bathroom, you would be fine with her using any bathroom she chooses?" host Matt Lauer asked Trump. "That is correct," Trump said. Asked for his view on the North Carolina bathroom controversy, Trump said the state has "paid a...

    Transgender people should be able to use whatever bathroom they want, Donald Trump said Thursday. "Oh, I had a feeling that question was going to come up, I will tell you. North Carolina did something that was very strong. And they're paying a big price. There's a lot of problems," the Republican presidential candidate said during a town hall event on NBC's "Today." Referring to comments from an unnamed commentator who on Wednesday said North Carolina should "leave it the way it is right now," Trump said he agreed. "Leave it the way it is. North Carolina, what they're going...

    Donald Trump on Monday did not refute a report claiming he told The New York Times editorial board in an off-the-record meeting that his immigration views are in fact more flexible than he has made them seem throughout his presidential campaign. "Everything is negotiable," Trump said Monday on Fox News, responding to a question about whether the report, which undermines Trump's hardline stance on immigration, was accurate.

    Donald Trump: “I like the mandate.” Donald Trump has often promised to repeal the “disaster” that is Obamacare and he’s right, it is a disaster.But at Thursday night’s CNN Republican Presidential Town Hall in South Carolina, Donald Trump embraced what is easily the worst part of Obamacare, the anti-free market “individual mandate” which forces Americans to buy only government-approved health care insurance, whether they want to or not.To justify his support for the Obamacare mandate, Donald Trump uses leftist talking points of not wanting people to “die in the streets,” as if they has ever happened in America — before...

The billionaire businessman was asked during the Fox Business debate about whether he was sympathetic to protesters who have been pushing for the minimum wage to be raised to $15 an hour. “I can’t be…and the reason I can’t be is because we are a country that is being beaten on every front,” Trump said on...

    U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell said Thursday that his comments to a local newspaper that it is “not my job” to bring employment to a struggling Kentucky county were taken out of context. For a story in the Beattyville Enterprise, McConnell was asked what he would do to bring jobs to Lee County, where the unemployment rate is 12.8 percent. “That is not my job. It is the primary responsibility of the state Commerce Cabinet,” the paper quoted McConnell in its story Thursday, which ran on the paper’s front page. McConnell said in a statement Thursday that his comments were taken...

    During a Saturday fundraiser in Beverly Hills, Calif., which took in $6 million, Mitt Romney expressed his concerns over Ann Romney’s emergency landing on Friday. The candidate cast doubt on the mechanical design of airplane windows, in a general sense. “When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly, there’s no — and you can’t find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem. So it’s very dangerous....” he said.

    Glenn Beck hates 9/11 survivors. Shocking as it may sound, Glenn Beck claimed that he hates 9/11 survivors. The Fox news personality and media clown has always been an outrageous demagogue, a pied piper to the illiterate, unwashed masses that make up the Fox news audience. Beck's remarks were made on the September 9 broadcast of The Glenn Beck Program: you know it took me about a year to start hating the 9-11 victims' families? Took me about a year. And when I see a 9-11 victim family on television, or whatever, I'm just like, "Oh shut up!" I'm so...

    (CNSNews.com) - Does any doting mother want to think about putting her firstborn baby in harm's way? Liberal backers of Sen. Barack Obama are banking on a "no" answer. The liberal advocacy group MoveOn.org is running a political ad featuring a new mother, bouncing baby boy on her lap, chiding John McCain about wanting to wage a "hundred-year" war in Iraq. "John McCain, when you say you would stay in Iraq for a hundred years, were you counting on Alex? Because if you were, you can't have him," the mother (actress) says with a quaver in her voice.

    Nothing frightens those who peddle lies than the cold hard light of truth. They react to exposure of their deceits the way vampires react to a having a crucifix held up in front of them. Ever since the birth of conservative talk radio and the Internet ended the liberals’ total monopoly over the news, the left has been simmering with impotence -- over the loss of their absolute control over what the Americans are allowed to see and hear, and their inability to do anything about it. Time and again liberal attempts to sell the nation their shoddy goods have...

    During his radio show yesterday, conservative personality Rush Limbaugh announced that he felt "liberated" by Tuesday's election results and that he doesn't "have to carry the water for people that I think don't deserve to have their water carried." He said that while he was not going to "eat his own" or "throw my own overboard," he also acknowledged that it isn't his "job to make them succeed." According to transcripts from the show available on Limbaugh's web site, rushlimbaugh.com, Limbaugh said it wasn't his job to make Republicans "look good if they can't do it themselves."

    Using the Press to Attack Political Opponents Everyone is weighing in on what Bill Bennett said on his radio program. Everyone is eager to offer their opinion on his words and whether or not he should have said them. Everyone is missing the point. The travesty is that we’re even talking about this at all. The most abhorrent behavior that occurred regarding this issue came from the Associated Press (AP). Allowing news hit men like John Conyers, Bruce Gordon, Ralph Neas, Howard Dean and many elected Democrats to assault Bill Bennett is detestable and the AP should be held accountable....

    NEW YORK (AP) - Private conversations with George Bush secretly taped by an old friend before he was elected president foreshadow some of his political strategies and appear to reveal that he acknowledged using marijuana, The New York Times reported Saturday. The conversations were recorded by Doug Wead, a former aide to George W. Bush's father, beginning in 1998, when Bush was weighing a presidential bid, until just before the Republican National Convention in 2000, the Times said in a story posted on its Web site. The tapes show Bush crafting a strategy for navigating the tricky political waters between...
