The hypocritical anti-Trumpers’ non-stop shrieking about “Trump’s” immigration policy (which has been in place since Bush? Clinton?) are actually making me nostalgic for Stormy.
This photo of a crying child has gone viral.
From Stilton: Leftists and other soft-headed types are having absolute conniption fits over President Trump’s brand new policy of temporarily separating kids from their families when they enter the country illegally. And when we say “brand new policy,” we mean exactly the same policy which has been law since champion-of-the-children Bill “Pedophile Island” Clinton was president. Certainly Barack Obama made major use of the policy, albeit without a peep of complaint from the mainstream media. Continue reading
Trump Haters can’t even get their Fake News on straight.
FIRST, they circulated this …. as some sort of PROOF POSITIVE of how evil President Trump is. On Saturday, Hillary advisor Zac Petkanas even accused President Trump of selling children to human traffickers.
The enemy is the Press.
The great and lasting good the Trump Presidency will do, with consequences reaching farther than any other policy, change, or legislation this Administration will accomplish, is to break down the smothering wall of falsehood so long erected around the mental plantation of the victims and perpetrators of Political Correctness. Shattering that wall is as monumental an act as shattering the Berlin Wall.
The Trump has taken a sledgehammer to that wall with just two words: Fake News.
Freeing the economy from the insanity of over regulation, appointing judges respectful of the Constitution and its wording, deterring foes abroad and regaining control of immigration at home, are all of them good things with good short term consequences. But all this pales in comparison to the long-term consequences of freeing the minds of an entire generation of Americans from the sticky webbing of delirium and falsehood deceiving their eyes and deadening their souls.
I do not exaggerate when I liken the downfall of the Fake News hegemony to the fall of the Berlin Wall. The News in America was and is an evil empire. It is just as devoted to socialist totalitarianism, show trials, and false narratives as the Soviet Union. The sole difference is that it is maintained by words, not by swords.
Like the fall of the Soviet Union, the collapse will come with shocking suddenness. Lies do not erode; they evaporate. When the Berlin Wall of Fake News falls … not even rubble will be left.
Delusional America is nothing but a bad dream. It will vanish when it goes like a bad dream. Men will wake, and gaze at each other with strange laughter, and wonder why for so long they so pliantly let themselves be lied to, and lied about. Why did we tolerate and support for so many years a news media that told so many lies, that hated us so much?
Even with his other accomplishments and victories left aside, this alone will award Donald Trump the right to say that he made America great again.

Epic Fact Check by Mark Dice
Why tell the inconvenient truth when the convenient lie gets TEN TIMES as much attention?
On Thursday, AP rushed to publish an unconfirmed story that made right-wingers look bad. It was retweeted more than 41,000 times.
On Friday evening, the graveyard of all news stories, AP published its correction. So far, seventeen hours later, it has been retweeted all of 4,045 times.
This is just a partial list. I deleted a whole bunch of stuff to keep this post a reasonable length.
ALL YEAR: According to the U.S. intelligence community, Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election, but did NOT “hack the election” — i.e., change voter tallies or anything of the sort.
- The media talked incessantly about how “Russia hacked the election”, supposedly to help Trump get elected. Nobody explained why Russia would WANT Donald “Make America Great Again” Trump in office rather than their long-time, uranium-selling collaborator and successor to Barack “America Sucks” Obama, Hillary Clinton.
JANUARY: On January 20, Time reporter Zeke Miller wrote that a bust of Martin Luther King Jr. had been removed from the White House.
- This was not true. Miller didn’t happen to see the bust in the crowded Oval Office, so rather than ask someone, he went ahead and peddled the Democrat lie that Trump is a flaming RAAACIST.
JANUARY: When a new president takes office, it is routine for the previous administration’s White House web content to be archived, so the new administration can use whitehouse.gov for its own business.
- The New York Times reported that the Trump administration had “purged” any “climate change references” from the White House website, as if Trump was some kind of digital book burner.
JANUARY: It is customary when a new administration enters the White House for officials to submit resignations. Trump accepted the resignations of four mid-level State Department officials.
- WaPo reported that the U.S. State Department’s “entire senior administrative team” resigned en masse in protest of Trump’s presidency.
JANUARY: Five days before President Trump’s executive order banned travel from some predominantly Muslim countries, Mike Hager’s mother died in one of those countries.
- The story that she had died BECAUSE of the travel ban went viral.
FEBRUARY: President Trump and Mexican president Enrique Pena Nieto talked by telephone.
- Based on an AP report, Trump told Nieto he was planning to invade Mexico. The story went viral, but even the Mexican government said that was not at all what Trump had said.
FEBRUARY: A leaked draft of a memo from inside the Department of Homeland Security contained a suggestion that maybe the National Guard could assist in the “investigation, apprehension and detention” of criminal aliens.
- AP reported that President Trump was definitely considering mobilizing 100,000 National Guard to help round up and DEPORT illegal aliens.
FEBRUARY: NBC News national correspondent Peter Alexander tweeted that Trump was going to allow Russian companies to do business with Russia’s secret service.
- The story that Trump was obviously cozy with the Russian government went viral. In reality, the change was merely a technical policy fix that had been planned under Obama.
MAY: The GOP’s American Health Care Act said states could apply for waivers that would allow insurance companies, under certain limited circumstances, to charge higher premiums to people based on their personal medical histories. States that were granted these waivers would be required to set up special high-risk insurance pools to help defray costs for these people, as is common with car insurance.
- CNN and several others reported that the bill would classify rape and sexual assault as preexisting conditions and allow insurance companies to deny survivors coverage, which was a total lie.
JUNE: On June 6, CNN ran a story claiming former FBI Director James Comey planned to REFUTE President Trump’s claim that Comey had assured him three separate times that he was not under FBI investigation.
- On June 6, Comey’s prepared remarks were released to the public, showing that Comey would actually CONFIRM Trump’s assertion.
NOVEMBER: While in Japan, President Trump followed Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in dumping a small bowl of fish food into a koi pond.
- CNN dishonestly cropped Abe’s prior action out of the video, then reported that Trump’s bowl dump had been a diplomatic faux pas.
DECEMBER: In late 2016, PRESIDENT-ELECT Trump told his transition team to contact world leaders regarding the incoming administration’s foreign policy objectives, which is standard for incoming presidents.
- ABC News reported that CANDIDATE Trump had told Michael Flynn to contact Russia.
I have to admit, I used to think CNN was just a left-leaning news outlet that hides its political bias but still occasionally reports the truth. Now I think CNN is a Trump-Russia wish fulfillment outlet that is so inept you would have to be a complete dumb*** to not see the leftist bias. Now what is the interim period between those two opinions, you ask? 16 hours, 16 earth-shattering hours to my mental capacities, 16 hours straight of CNN.
Who is it that came up with the masochistic idea of subjecting themselves to 16 hours of leftist propaganda? None other than our friends over at Louder with Crowder, of course! Being a masochist myself, I decided to join them on their journey, eventually leading me to ponder what exactly was more absurd: witnessing dwarf Jesus best dwarf Santa in the figgy pudding battle of the ages, or the fact that CNN is still on air… Sorry, I’m getting a bit off topic; I think the staggering mediocrity of Wolf Blitzer just gave me a mini-aneurism. Nevertheless, here are the five lessons I painstakingly learned from the #CrowderCNNLivestream.
1. Breaking News: The Story Already Broke
Every 15 minutes or so, CNN posts a story with either “Breaking” or “Developing” appearing on the chyron. In reality, CNN broke only 3 stories during the 16 hours I watched.
2. This Just In: Trump X Putin 16/7
About half of CNN’s coverage is dedicated to fueling a fantasy land where Trump-Russia collusion actually exists.
3. Stop The Presses: CNN Is Not Republican Friendly
Almost all the coverage of the day was critical of Republicans and roughly zero reflected badly on Democrats. Many hours were devoted to talking about how Republicans wanted to kill millions of children by defunding CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program), which was never true. When Republicans actually passed funding for CHIP, CNN gave the story about 5 seconds.
4. Read All About It: I’m So Dumb, I Don’t Think I’m Capable of Reading Anymore
The only newsworthy things covered for the day were the U.N.’s ruling to condemn Trump’s decision to move the U.S. embassy to Israel’s capital, Jerusalem, Republicans funding CHIP, and the Melbourne attack. I very nearly missed the fact that Republicans funded CHIP and I never heard the Melbourne attacker was of Afghan descent and was partially motivated by the mistreatment of Muslims. I also didn’t hear a single thing mentioned about the Uranium One story despite it being trending on Twitter.
5. Developing: Jake Tapper Deserves a Better Home
Yes, I do still think Jake Tapper has a left-leaning bias, but I do think he tries to disseminate truth from time to time.
Summary: I may not have walked away from this experience any smarter, but I certainly gained the wisdom that there is much merit to uttering the phrase “CNN is fake news.” For that revelation I owe thanks to Steven Crowder and Co.
ABC News has suspended their reporter Brian Ross without pay for 4 weeks and has issued a retraction of his FAKE NEWS story.
Ross false reported that former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was prepared to testify that CANDIDATE Donald Trump had told him to make contact with the Russians during the election.
Actually, Flynn was prepared to testify that PRESIDENT-ELECT Trump (after the election) predictably and appropriately asked him to make contact with Russia as any transition team would do – in this case to discuss the possibility of joint US/Russian military options to fight ISIS.
