  • Acting defense secretary orders NSA director to immediately install former GOP operative as the agency’s top lawyer

    01/17/2021 8:06:22 AM PST · by MNDude · 102 replies
    Acting defense secretary Christopher C. Miller ordered the director of the National Security Agency to install on Saturday a former GOP political operative as the NSA’s top lawyer, according to four individuals familiar with the matter. The move is troubling, coming as it does four days before President Trump leaves office and the Biden administration takes over, former U.S. officials said. The move makes it more difficult for the Biden administration to immediately replace him, the former officials said. “An 11th-hour move like this and a directive from the acting secretary of defense is overwhelmingly strong evidence of irregularity,” Hennessey...

    The Washington Post Editorial Board praised the shutdown of free-speech platform Parler by the company owned by the same “world’s richest person” that owns The Washington Post. The Jan. 11 editorial screed was headlined, “Parler deserved to be taken down. We still need new rules for the Internet.” The Post gushed in the first paragraph that “PRESIDENT TRUMP’S exile from Twitter and Facebook last week left him with Parler, a fringe, laissez-faire social media site, as his likely best alternative for online communication.” It continued: “Then Parler found itself on the outs, too, booted from Apple and Google’s app stores...
  • Washington Post claims Cumulus Media orders its prominent talk hosts to stop supporting President Trump’s claims – or else: Mark Levin, the Most Prominent Figure Mentioned, Disputes the Story

    In a report hotly disputed by Mark Levin, the most prominent figure mentioned, Paul Farhi of the Washington Post reports that Cumulus Media, a major syndicator of talk radio programs by conservative icons including Mark Levin, Ben Shapiro, and Dan Bongino, “has decided on an abrupt change of direction,” as the paper described it. Cumulus Media, which employs some of the most popular right-leaning talk-radio hosts in the United States, has told its on-air personalities to stop suggesting that the election was stolen from President Trump — or else face termination.Cumulus Media is the third largest owner and operator of...

    NewsBusters ^ | 1/6/2021 | Joseph Vazquez
    Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank published a babbling op-ed smearing Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Director Russ Vought. It’s worth noting that Milbank is the same individual who disturbingly said he’d eat his own print newspaper column if then-candidate Donald Trump won the 2016 Republican nomination. Milbank’s op-ed was erroneously headlined “Meet the Trump saboteur in charge of undermining Biden — and America.” He spewed that “[W]hat Russ Vought is very good at is sabotage. He’s sabotaging national security, the pandemic response and the economic recovery — all to make things more difficult for the incoming Biden administration.” He...

    People need “immunity passports” if they want the economy reopened. At least, that’s the crazy idea The Washington Post decided to push. The Post published an insane op-ed advocating for this proposal by Vital Strategies Director of Public Health Law Aaron Schwid and Resolve to Save Lives CEO Tom Frieden. The two authors argued that “as more and more people are vaccinated, it’s time to carefully design a system of ‘immunity passports.’” As the op-ed stated, “These passports would serve as a form of proof of immunity, allowing people who have immunity to engage in some activities others cannot.” A...

    President Trump granted clemency on Tuesday to 20 people, including three former Republican members of Congress and two people who were convicted of crimes as part of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. He also pardoned four military contractors convicted of killing 14 unarmed Iraqi civilians in Baghdad in 2007, and extended clemency to several people convicted of drug offenses. The pre-Christmas pardons and commutations came as the president has been exploring how to reward friends and allies in the waning days before leaving office next month, with more acts of clemency expected to come.

    Max Boot, a conservative columnist for The Washington Post, in his latest op-ed Monday warned of what he fears will be President Donald Trump’s legacy for the GOP. Boot wrote of his hope that Trump’s “outrageous” bid to overturn the 2020 election would be “the last gasp of a pathetic presidency in its dying days” but also of his worry “it might represent only a middle chapter in the Republican Party’s transformation” into an authoritarian party. Boot, a vocal critic of Trump, noted how even before Trump’s arrival on the political stage, “Republicans had shown their willingness to use any...

    The Washington Post editorial board called over the weekend for the Electoral College to be abolished just days after media outlets projected Joe Biden to be the winner of the 2020 presidential election. Biden is expected to earn 306 electoral votes after all the results are certified, the same number of electoral votes President Trump received in 2016. Washington Post columnist and Fox News contributor Marc Thiessen pointed out last week that "a flip of just some 73,700 votes" in Arizona, Pennsylvania and Georgia would have handed President Trump a second term, but the board drew a "different conclusion" in...

    The postal worker in Pennsylvania who congressional Democrats and a major US newspaper claimed had recanted his allegations of mail-in-ballot tampering is denying that he walked back his words. In a video posted Tuesday evening, Richard Hopkins, a United States Postal Service worker in the must-win swing state, denied taking back his statements when speaking to authorities. “I’m here to say I did not recant my statements. That did not happen,” said Hopkins, 32. The news came hours after House Oversight Committee Democrats wrote in a series of tweets that investigators with the USPS Inspector General’s Office told staffers that...

    The lies, omissions, and mischaracterizations are designed to prevent oversight and accountability of Russia hoax that the Washington Post perpetuated. A reporter who won a Pulitzer for her role in perpetrating the Russia collusion hoax on the American people continued to lie about it in an article in TuesdayÂ’s Washington Post. Ellen NakashimaÂ’s attempted hit piece on Trump appointee Michael Ellis included multiple falsehoods: In March 2017, [Ellis] gained publicity for his involvement in a questionable episode involving [Devin] Nunes, who was given access at the White House to intelligence files that Nunes believed would buttress his baseless claims of...

    Following a King County Superior Court ruling last month, a right-wing recall petition is now in motion to remove Socialist Alternative member Kshama Sawant from her position on the Seattle City Council. Though nominally “grassroots” and “independent,” the initiative was launched by the Democratic Party and has attracted the support of Republicans and far-right forces. The Socialist Equality Party opposes the right-wing campaign to remove Sawant on the basis of trumped-up charges and overturn the result of democratic elections. Notwithstanding our fundamental political differences with Socialist Alternative, we maintain that Sawant has a right to serve in the office to...

SNIP The flub was picked up by Vice editor Jill Krajewski, who noted that “an embarrassing number of music outlets” including Complex, NME, Consequence of Sound and The Fader aggregated the misreported Washington Post story.
