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.

 

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.

 

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.

Networks Refuse to Cover Senate’s ‘No Russia Collusion’ Report

The same networks that spent 2,202 minutes of collective airtime to push the Russia Collusion Media-Hoax are refusing to cover the Senate Intelligence Committee bipartisan report, which found no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

The Media Research Center (MRC) did the research and found that between January 21, 2017, and February 10, 2019, “ABC’s World News Tonight, the CBS Evening News, and the NBC Nightly News [spent] 2,202 minutes on the Russia investigation [, which] accounted for nearly 19 percent of all Trump-related reporting [, and now] none of those three shows have even mentioned the investigation since NBC’s report came out on February 12.”

The same is true elsewhere on the left-wing networks.

“Neither CBS This Morning nor NBC’s Today have even acknowledged this new information from Senate investigators since the news broke on February 12,” MRC reports. “ABC’s Good Morning America briefly touched on it in a news brief totaling less than one minute on February 13.”

What’s especially fascinating is that NBC’s Ken Dilanian broke the original news of the Senate report, and NBC is still refusing to cover the story.

The reasons for this are quite obvious: the media know a reckoning is on the horizon, and they are buying time in the hopes of finding a way to wriggle out of it. Read the rest of this article at breitbart.com.

 

Omar, Northam, Tlaib, Joy Reid, and Farrakhan Define the Democrat Party of Hate

by John Nolte:

The Democrat Party is now defined by Ilhan Omar, Ralph Northam, Rashida Tlaib, Joy Reid, Elizabeth Warren, Dianne Feinstein, and Louis Farrakhan. The Democrat Party is now the Party of Hate.

Let’s start with what’s happening in Virginia. Ralph Northam, the sitting Democrat governor, and Mark Herring, the sitting Democrat attorney general, have both admitted to putting on blackface as adults. Young adults, but adults nonetheless. They are both white, they are both still in power, and they will remain in power.

Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D-VA), a black man, is systematically having his life, career, and reputation dismantled over two very serious sexual assault allegations, but all of this is happening to him before there has been any due process, before there has been an investigation.

So the two white Democrats guilty of parading around in blackface sit pretty while the black guy, who denies any wrongdoing and who has not had the benefit of anything resembling due process, is being hung out to dry. Read the rest of this article ar breitbart.com.

Nolte: WaPo Spends $5.2M on Vanity Ad in Wake of 1,200 Media Layoffs


by John Nolte

After some 1,200 people lost their media jobs last week, the far-left Washington Post spent $5.2 million to run a vanity ad during the Super Bowl.

You have to watch the Post ad to understand just how vacuous it is. What we have here is the highest form of propaganda narrated by a Big Movie Star (Tom Hanks), produced only to give you a chronic case of the FeelSoGoodz.

Hanks pompously informs us:

When we go off to war, when we exercise our rights, when we soar to our greatest heights, when we mourn and pray, when our neighbors are at risk, when our nation is threatened — there’s someone to gather the facts, to bring you the story — no matter the cost because knowing empowers us.

“Knowing helps us decide. Knowing keeps us free,” he added.

Notice how the ad’s only example of terrorism is Oklahoma City and not either attack on the World Trade Center or the Pentagon or any one of the more recent Islamic terror attacks on our homeland because democracy dies in darkness, or something…

Here’s my idea for a Washington Post ad that is actually fact-based, and I would like Robert Davi to narrate:

NARRATOR: Who do we count on to bring us the fake news from so-called reporters who call us “rubes,” to hand its Faith column to a practicing occultist, to publish the lies about the Russians hacking our electric grid, to blame President Trump for hurricanes, to sentence us to a lifetime of public harassment, to advocate for the hatred of all men, to call for violence against us, and smear innocent Catholic boys as Nazis…?

FADE UP TO: Washington Post Logo

NARRATOR: Democracy doesn’t die in darkness — it dies in a brightly lit newsroom populated with hacks owned by a Silicon Valley megalomaniac who sends dick pics to his mistress.

My ad is also meant to give you a case of the feel goodz, but it also contains facts about the sorry state of journalism today. Read the rest of this article at breitbart.com.

Nolte: Ralph Northam Is the Media’s Governor

by John Nolte

Chances are, if you are being lied to by a member of the D.C. Media — whether it’s in print, online, or on the TV — you are being lied to by a resident of Virginia. Yes, you are being lied to by a far-leftist who voted to make Democrat Ralph “The Coonman” Northam his or her governor.

You see, most of the reporters who work in Washington, DC, do not live in Washington, DC; they live in Virginia. This should come as no surprise to anyone who understands the left.

On paper, Washington, DC, should be a haven, a Leftist Utopia. After all, D.C. has been exclusively run by Democrats for decades. In fact, since the creation of the Office of the Mayor of Washington, DC, in the early 1970s, only Democrats have held that office. There are no eeeevil Republicans stopping D.C. Democrats from instituting their utopian policies, and yet…

Washington, DC, is the 16th most dangerous city in all of America. (Guess which political party runs almost all of the other 15.) Washington, DC, runs the worst schools in America, has the highest income inequality in all of America, and has a serious homeless problem. Read the rest of this article at breitbart.com.

Carlson: VA Dems Not Calling for Northam Resignation Want Blackface, Klan Robes ‘Safe, Legal and Rare’

On Friday’s edition of Tucker Carlson Tonight, Tucker reacts to the trends toward infanticide in the recent Orwellian abortion laws and proposed/passed by Progressives Democrats, especially by Virginia governor, Ralph Norton. Pay particular attention to the sarcasm he uses. The full transcript is below the video.

 

As you saw on tape, Northam came out in favor of infanticide this week. Not exaggerating. Northam said it slowly and clearly. You just saw it. Then he reiterated his views, just in case he wasn’t clear the first time. In a statement today, Northam explained that abortion at any stage is a positive good, and this is worth listening to this carefully, because, quote: “Reproductive freedom leads to economic freedom.”

In other words, abortion is virtuous, because it makes women efficient employees, better and more dutiful servants of Northam’s donors. They can work longer hours without worrying about anybody but their bosses. Northam is in favor of that, so are the democrats that are serving their own masters in the private equity class.

Well the press covered this of course, but not in the way you’ve imagined. So to the reporters of the Washington Post, the real crime here, was Republicans complaining about Ralph Northam. Quote: “Abortion bill draws GOP outrage against Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, Democratic legislators.” That’s a headline. Republicans whine too much, infanticide, not a big deal.

And then all of that changed you heard on today, the first day of Black History Month, a site called Big League Politics uncovered the photo Trace just told us about. What is so interesting about it, is that Ralph Northam spent a lot of his last campaign calling his opponent racist, again and again and again. The closing of that campaign was non-ending flurries of ads putting up the Republican opponent up against pictures of what happened at Charlottesville, the atrocities of Charlottesville.

There is no evidence his opponent was racist, but Northam said it a lot. And yet strikingly, Northam’s opponent never took pictures of himself in blackface or in a Klan robe. So there is some irony in this story. As of right now, a number of prominent Democrats, Kamala Harris among them, have called for Northam’s resignation over this. But there are many in his party, particularly in Virginia, who are standing by him.

Those Democrats personally oppose blackface and Klan robes, as a matter of conscience, but they don’t want them relegated to some black alley. They want blackface and Klan robes to be safe, legal and rare, a private matter between a politician and his donors. For now, Governor Northam will be kept comfortable, you can be certain of that. He will be resuscitated if that is what his party desires.

Judge Jeanine Pirro Contemplates a Flying Witch

In her opening statement on Saturday’s “Justice With Judge Jeanine,” Fox News host Judge Pirro slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelozi and the Democrats for not making a deal with President Trump to end the partial government shutdown.

Following is a partial transcript:

…And Nancy, this is just the two of us here talking. Admit it. Your big donors in California, they want illegals to pick grapes. Even Cesar Chavez, you’re old enough to remember him, fought tooth and nail to stop illegal immigrants to protect legal immigrants and the farm workers.  It’s all theater, folks. The president, they say is a fear monger.

This is a manufactured crisis. Say that to the face of an Angel Mom whose child was murdered or massacred by illegal immigrants. You have kids Nancy? You do, don’t you. And why did you approve securing the 2000, the border, like so many of your Democrat cronies in 2006 and 13 under the Secure Fence Act? But not this? The obvious answer: Because Donald Trump wants it. Instead your path is to disrespect Americans and instead respect those who violate our laws. While you and your ilk praise pictures, uh raise pictures of furloughed federal employees, when you won’t meet with the Angel Moms who come to your office with pictures of American children killed by illegals

So let me see if I understand this. An American mother shows a picture of a child murdered by an illegal. And Chuck Schumer and his gang, they come out and show pictures of federal employees. Is there a moral equivalency here? Are you folks skitzo? Are you working for Americans or illegals? Or is it that you just don’t give a damn? You vacation in Hawaii. Your buddies vacation with lobbyists in Puerto Rico during this shutdown. And you plan a jaunt to Europe while federal employees are trying to save every dollar to buy groceries.

Admit – it you don’t give a damn. Nancy, you’re a hypocrite, a political operative. Your mantra: Destroy the President of the United States. To hell with the taxpaying, hardworking Americans. Let them eat cake. “I’ve got a junket to go on, an ego to assuage and an electorate to ignore.” And Nancy if you’re too afraid to take a commercial flight, there are alternate ways to fly, Check this one out. it’s tailor-made for you.

Nolte: Mitt Romney Is an Idiot

by John Nolte:

As the freshman senator from Utah, Mitt Romney is a long way from the presidency. That has to be especially tough on a two-time presidential loser with You-Know-Who sitting in the Oval Office, a guy who took the brass ring by doing the exact opposite of what you did.

My opinion of Mitt Romney has changed over the years. When he lost the Republican nomination to John McCain in 2008, I thought he was a classy guy with a future. When he lost the general election to Barack Obama in 2012, I thought he was a good man with a glass jaw. When he repeatedly got on his high horse to sabotage Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016, I thought he was an opportunistic sleaze bag gorging on sour grapes and his own monstrously selfish sense of virtue.

But now, after reading his Washington Post jihad against Trump, I finally figured what Mitt Romney really is … an idiot. Read the rest of this article HERE.

 

Coulter: Please, No More ‘Border Security’

Ann Coulter talks about the illegal immigration crisis with the candor, sarcasm and irony that few can.


by Ann Coulter:

The media are trying to convince Trump that if he abandons the wall, he’ll be a statesman, so that as soon as he folds, they can start making fun of him as an untrustworthy liar.

Everyone knows that we can never have a secure border without an impermeable barrier — something like a wall — across all of it. The Democrats know it, the voters know it, and the millions of illegals hurtling toward our border like cannonballs know it.

The Democrats’ latest idea is to call a wall “immoral, ineffective and expensive.”

If they think a wall is “immoral,” then they’re admitting it’s effective. An ineffective wall would merely be a place for illegals to stop and get a little shade before continuing their march into the United States.

Democrats’ backup argument is to cite — every four minutes on MSNBC — Trump’s claim that Mexico would pay for the wall. We’re all baffled by Trump not having already taxed remittances to Mexico to pay for the wall (100 percent within the president’s authority under various banking regulations), but if we’re going to start listing the promises Trump hasn’t kept, this is going to be a long column.

In point of fact, however, he never said Mexico would pre-pay. We can tax remittances anytime.

To keep the Third World masses flowing across our un-walled border, the media are demanding that Trump agree to nonspecific “border security.” It’s like ordering a Starbucks and instead of getting a coffee, you’re told to have more “pep.” Now move along. Here’s your change.

Would liberals accept such airy statements of intent in lieu of clear legal commands for any of the things they care about? (Not to be confused with “our country,” which they do not care about.)

Instead of EPA emissions standards, with specific parts per million of pollutants allowed into lakes and rivers, how about a law promoting “enhanced appreciation of God’s bounty”? Emissions standards are immoral and ineffective!

Nearly every Republican presidential candidate tried to con voters with these meaningless catchphrases about “border security.”

Here are The Des Moines Register’s summaries of some of the candidates’ positions on immigration a few weeks before the 2016 Iowa caucus:

Jeb Bush: “has called for enhanced border security.”

Marco Rubio: “proposes … improved security on the border.”

John Kasich: “believes border security should be strengthened.”

Chris Christie: “urges … using technology to improve border surveillance …”

Rand Paul: “would secure the border immediately.”

Carly Fiorina: “would secure the border, which she says requires only money and manpower.”

They all lost.

The guy who won: “Trump has said many illegal immigrants are rapists and are bringing drugs and crime to the United States. He has called for building a wall along the southern border, and has said he would make Mexico pay for it. He said he would immediately terminate President Barack Obama’s ‘illegal executive order on immigration.’”

Trump got more votes than any other Republican in the history of presidential primaries. No one was falling for “border security” then, and they aren’t now.

But instead of doing what he said and building a wall, Trump has hired people who don’t even grasp that the point is to make it unattractive to break into our country.

On ABC’s “This Week” last Sunday, Trump’s head of Customs and Border Protection, Kevin McAleenan, announced plans to give illegal alien kids free medical care at the border: “What we’ve done immediately, (Homeland Security) Secretary (Kirstjen) Nielsen and I have directed that we do medical checks of children 17 and under as they come into our process.”

Apparently, our working class is rolling in so much free health care that now our country is diverting medical resources to treat other countries’ sick kids. Read more HERE.

Fox News Judge Napolitano Continues to Trash Trump with Inaccurate ‘Analysis’

by John Nolte

Appearing with Shepard Smith on Wednesday, Fox News’s Judge Andrew Napolitano continued his winning streak of being the worst and most dishonest legal analyst on television not named Jeffrey Toobin.

Spewing all kinds of mindless gloom and doom (you can watch the full segment here), while ignoring the all-important mitigating context that proves just how stupid his gloom and doom is, Napolitano painted a dire picture of President Trump as a felon.

After Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison, Smith teed up Napolitano with this: “Prosecutors have told us through these filings that they have evidence that the President committed a felony.”

Naturally, Napolitano heartily agreed:

The felony is paying Michael Cohen to commit a felony. It’s pretty basic. Somebody hires you — A hires B to shoot someone. A is as liable as if he had pulled the trigger. You pay someone to commit a crime, they commit the crime, you are liable, criminally liable for their commission of that crime, as well as they being liable. That’s what the prosecutors told the federal judge.

Keep in mind that this is coming from the same Judge FakeNews who called proven liar Christine Blasey Ford “exceptionally credible” after hearing only a few minutes of her testimony.

But here is the important information the Judge FakeNews is deliberately hiding from Fox viewers… Read the rest of this article at breitbart.com.

“If you are holding off canceling your cable to hold onto Fox News, it is time to rethink that.  If Fox News is going to mislead and spread anti-Trump propaganda that is no different from the fake news coming from CNN … It’s time to cut the cord, y’all, it is time to starve fake news.”
