The Media Just Can’t Stop Lying About Trump

June 28, 2018
By John Lott Jr • The Hill

President Trump’s half hour, impromptu interview on “Fox & Friends” last Friday sent the media’s fact checkers into overdrive this weekend. Everyone from PolitiFact to The New York Times to virtually all the Sunday morning national talk shows piled on, calling Trump a liar.

But the media can’t stop lying about what the president says. Sometimes it can’t distinguish a legitimate point of disagreement from a lie. It is no wonder that people have tuned out much of the constant attacks on Trump.

Just take the hyperbole on Sunday’s Meet the Press. Before playing a compilation of clips from Trump’s interview, moderator Chuck Todd exclaimed: “Let me put together this list of just outright misstatements, lies.” After showing the clips, Todd felt it necessary to emphasize yet again that everyone knew the statements were false: “Every single one of those things is absolutely not true.”

The show had on two liberal and two conservative panelists, but it wasn’t real balance as the conservatives were both “never Trumpers.” The guests debated whether Trump was simply lying or whether he lacked the “mental capacity” to know that he was spewing falsehoods.

So let’s review the first three statements that Todd claims are false. Then we’ll look at the one that he says is the “most ridiculous” of all. Read more HERE.

 

RNC Marks St. Patrick’s Day With Mugshot of Beto O’Rourke in a Leprechaun Hat and ‘Please Drink Responsibly’ Message

by Josh Siegel

The Republican National Committee mocked “noted Irishman” 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke with a St. Patrick’s Day “special message” that drew stern criticism from conservative figures.

In a tweet Sunday, the GOP linked the 46-year-old’s 1998 drunken driving arrest to his Irish heritage.

“On this St. Paddy’s Day, a special message from noted Irishman Robert Francis O’Rourke,” the post said, which featured his mugshot with a leprechaun hat atop his head, along with the message “Please drink responsibly.”

CNN is Determined to Turn Fake News Into Truth.

CNN continues to lie to its views [sic] in the United States and around the world about what President Donald Trump said about the riots in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August 2017.

As Breitbart News has explained repeatedly, and as CNN’s own coverage at the time showed, Trump used the phrase “very fine people” to describe non-violent protesters on either side of the debate over a Confederate statue — and specifically excluded the neo-Nazis, whom he “condemned totally.”

Yet for the past several weeks, CNN has reported that Trump was referring to neo-Nazis as “very fine people” in Charlottesville. CNN is now using the Charlottesville lie to implicate Trump in the terror attacks against two mosques in New Zealand on Friday.

On Friday evening, host Don Lemon played a deceptively edited video clip of President Trump’s press conference from Trump Tower on August 15, 2017.

Lemon introduced the clip by saying, “Nobody has forgotten — nobody has forgotten — what he said after that deadly white supremacist riot in Charlottesville.”

He then cut to a clip of Trump saying, “You also had people that were very fine people on both sides. You had people in that group — excuse me, excuse me. I saw the same pictures as you did.”

Lemon left out that Trump had made clear he was not talking about the neo-Nazis: “I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally.” He also failed to explain that, as CNN itself reported at the time of the press conference, Trump was referring to people “that were there to protest the taking down, to them, of a very, very important statue and a renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.” Read more HERE.

 

Maduro Caracas-es The Whip

The old Bolshevik mare just ain’t what she used to be, and she never was.

That’s because socialism doesn’t work and it never has. It starts with cries of ‘equality’ and ‘free stuff’ and ends in misery, despair, and tyranny.

This is not hard to figure out. Nobody wants to work for free and there is no such thing as a free lunch. Someone has to pay for that lunch. Farmers must grow crops and raise cattle. That food must be processed and shipped. Bakers have to bake the bread. Stores and restaurants work to prepare and serve that lunch. It all takes time, effort and labor. If it were free, there would be no incentive for anyone to provide it. Read more HERE.

President Trump Mocks ‘Amazing Breed’ of Never Trumpers, Slams ‘Almost Deranged’ ‘Poor Bastard’ George Will

President Donald Trump mocked Never Trumpers in an exclusive, more-than-40-minute interview with Breitbart News in the Oval Office on Monday afternoon, calling them a nearly dead, “amazing breed” of political figures. Trump added, however, the ones who are left are still “slightly dangerous.”

“The Never Trumpers, that’s an amazing breed. First of all, they’re on mouth-to-mouth resuscitation now,” Trump said in response to a question from Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alexander Marlow on his thoughts on Never Trumpers. “There aren’t many of them left. But they’re still slightly dangerous.”

Trump’s comments on Never Trumpers in the Breitbart News exclusive interview went further than a line he first rolled out in his speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) hosted by the American Conservative Union (ACU) a little over a week ago, where the president spoke for a record two-plus hours.

“Everyone in this great country, right now, because of our great new economy, is doing well — except, of course, for the Never Trumpers,” Trump said in the CPAC speech. “But they are on mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Mouth to mouth. Mouth to mouth. They’re hanging in. A couple of them. I mean, these guys have gotten me wrong. Not only Never Trumpers. You have Never Trumpers; you have certain hardline. They’re basically dishonest people — because, look, let’s face it: Whether you like me or not — if my name is Smith instead of Trump, and if you told him I put in over 100 federal judges — it’ll soon be 145 federal judges and two Supreme Court judges. (Applause.) And 17 appellate division judges.” Read more HERE.

 

NYT Says Border at ‘Breaking Point’ 1 Month After ‘Fact Check’ Claimed No Emergency

by John Nolte

One month after claiming there is “no emergency” at the border, the far-left New York Times now concedes the border is at a “breaking point.”

In real time, as President Trump gave his State of the Union speech last month, the Times branded the president a liar over his claim that there is an “urgent national crisis” at our border.

“This is false,” the Times told its readers, using a non sequitur about individuals attempting to cross the border, while admitting — at the bottom of the fact check —  that a “record number of families have tried to cross the border in recent months.”

At the time, this phony fact check was widely ridiculed for its absurd attempt to hide the fact that a “record number of families” stressing the resources of our southern border does not somehow constitute a legitimate crisis, and now, almost exactly a month later, this very same Times is reporting our border is at a “breaking point.”

“The number of migrant families crossing the southwest border has once again broken records, with unauthorized entries nearly doubling what they were a year ago, suggesting that the Trump administration’s aggressive policies have not discouraged new migration to the United States,” the Times reports.

Joe DiGenova Says ‘Everyone Should Take the Fifth’ Who’s Called to Testify Before Nadler’s Committee

(CNSNews.com) – The day after the House Judiciary Committee asked 81 people to produce documents as part of the newly expanded Trump investigation, a former U.S. attorney said private citizens should refuse to cooperate.

“No one should talk to this committee. Everyone should take the fifth,” Joe diGenova, the former U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, told Fox News’s Martha McCallum on Monday.

“This is a letter to 81 people to produce documents. Everyone should refuse, and when they’re subpoenaed, they should all take the Fifth, because this is a perjury trap. This is not a legitimate investigation. It is a fishing expedition. They’re trying to get people up there to make them look bad so they can try and

make the president look bad.”

 

“Carter Page is the last person who should go and talk to them. And why is that? He cooperated with the FBI and helped convict two Russian spies in New York. Then all of a sudden, the FBI decided to frame him and use him to try and gather fake evidence to use against the president of the United States in a FISA warrant. Read more at cnsnews.com.

 

America Will Never be a Socialist Nation / I’d Rather Die Standing

(Scroll down please)

Does anyone remember the terrorist attack?  On 7 January 2015 at about 11:30 local time, two brothers, Saïd and Chérif Kouachi, forced their way into the offices of the French satirical weekly newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris. Armed with rifles and other weapons, they killed 12 people and injured 11 others. Wikipedia

“I am not afraid of retaliation. I have no kids, no wife, no car, no mortgage. It surely is a bit dramatic but I’d rather die on my feet, than live on my knees.” – Stephane (Charb) Charbonnier, publisher and editor of Charlie Hedbo.

There appears to be growing momentum, once again, for a single-payer health care system. The latest versions come in the form of focus-group-tested names like Medicare for All or Medicare Buy-In or Medicare at 50, etc.

We need you in this battle against anti-American socialist policies!

At the State of the Union, President Trump said, “America will never be a Socialist country,” and you can ensure this promise by standing up to the dishonesty surrounding the push for socialized healthcare.

A recent survey shows that a majority of Americans don’t fully understand the potential consequences of Medicare for All. 55% of respondents erroneously believe they will be able to keep their existing health care plans thinking participation is voluntary. This could not be further from the truth. When this is explained, along with the tax consequences and affects of delayed care, support drops to 26%.

Translation: when you tell the truth about socialism, the vast majority of Americans don’t want it.

Yes, every American deserves affordable health care, but not at the expense of high-quality services and personalized coverage. And remember, robbing Peter to pay Paul is wrong. Congress must be realistic about the current state of our health care system, be pragmatic about which steps to take moving forward, and follow the Constitution. Socialism and Medicare for All is not the answer.
