FAKE NEWS: Daily Beast

So what if she’s a mom?  We’re not responsible for her poor parenting decisions. She is.

PLUS, she had been deported before AND was driving without a license. If she were an American caught doing this in Mexico, she would not be on her way home, but to prison.  Under the Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony. Illegals who have been deported and attempt to re-enter can be imprisoned for 10 years.

Surprise: Snopes wrote something decent about Trump

Broadly speaking, most of the falsehoods levelled against Trump fall into one or more of four categories, each of them drawing from and feeding into four public personas inhabited by the President.

They are:

  • Donald Trump: International Embarrassment
  • Trump the Tyrant
  • Donald Trump: Bully baby
  • Trump the Buffoon.

Some of these claims are downright fake, entirely fabricated by unreliable or dubious web sites and presented as satire, or otherwise blatantly false. But the rest — some of which have gained significant traction and credibility from otherwise serious people and organizations — provide a fascinating insight into the tactics and preoccupations of the broad anti-Trump movement known as “the Resistance,” whether they were created by critics of the President or merely shared by them.

Generally speaking, we discovered that they are characterized and driven by four types of errors of thought:

  • Alarmism
  • A lack of historical context or awareness
  • Cherry-picking of evidence (especially visual evidence)
  • A failure to adhere to Occam’s Razor — the common-sense understanding that the simplest explanation for an event or behavior is the most likely.

This Is CNN

“The most trusted name in news” has become a pathetic joke. In its zeal to bring down Republicans in general and Donald Trump in particular, they have stooped to quoting “unnamed sources” and “anonymous tips,”  which is code for Obama holdovers leaking information to harm the administration. They behave like spoiled children at press briefings when they are not given the deference they feel they’re entitled to. It’s gotten to the point the briefings are no longer daily nor televised.

James O’Keefe from Project Veritas has done yeoman’s work for years exposing the Left for the liars and frauds they truly are. He taped a CNN producer admitting the Trump/Russia collusion stories are “mostly bullshit.”

Project Veritas Captures CNN Producer Saying Russia Reporting Is ‘Mostly Bulls**t’

Three journalists quit CNN in fallout from retracted Russia story


Reporter Thomas Frank, editor Eric Lichtblau and executive editor Lex Haris all resigned from their positions following a company-wide investigation into the single-sourced story that was quickly debunked, The Washington Post first reported. CNN quickly followed up with a story of their own on the resignations.

Lichtblau reportedly oversaw the false story, while Haris headed up CNN’s investigative unit.  In the retraction, the network said the story “did not meet CNN’s editorial standards.” The network is now requiring approval from two top editors before any Russia-related story can be published.

CNN Brags About Ratings After Undercover Tape Released

CNN is bragging about the network’s ratings shortly after an undercover video showed one producer claiming they cover Russia so heavily because it helps their ratings.

CNN seemed to think it was good timing to attack President Trump Tuesday morning for misrepresenting the network’s ratings and remind people they had their “most-watched second quarter in history.”

CNN’s Jim Acosta Breaks Press Briefing ‘No Cameras’ Rule and Takes Picture of Sean Spicer

No cameras were allowed in the White House press briefing on Monday, but CNN’s Jim Acosta broke the rules and took a picture anyway.

The liberal press pool act like children in the briefing room.  At one point, CNN’s Acosta opined:  “Why are the cameras off, Sean, why did you turn them off? Can you just give us an answer to that? Can you tell us why you turned the cameras off? Why are they off?”

FAKE NEWS: Enemy of the American People

2017_02 17 Trump fake news tweet

A recent poll asked Americans if they agree or disagree with this statement:

“News organizations report stories in a light that’s partial to who owns them.”

Seventy percent of those surveyed agreed. The last time I saw a poll like this, the total was 65%.

CNN has been one of the most egregious “fake news” offenders.

On June 22, 2017, CNN published yet another “try to make Republicans look bad by publishing a bunch of lies based on an anonymous source” story.

After Breitbart blew their garbage story out of the water, CNN was forced to publish a retraction. But true to form, they published it in the middle of the night.

The Long Knives Are Never Sheathed

In the latest assault on the President by the enemy that is sworn to destroy him, word leaked just in time for the 6:00 news that Donald Trump may have shared classified information during the latest meeting with Russian officials. In their normal style, akin to swatting flies with a bazooka, all the usual suspects have turned a leak by “unnamed sources” into yet another constitutional crisis.

From the oh-so-reliable Washington Post:
Trump revealed highly classified information to Russian foreign minister and ambassador
President Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting last week, according to current and former U.S. officials, who said Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State.
“FORMER OFFICIALS” (READ: OBAMA OPERATIVES) STILL IN GOVERNMENT

Are We Watching an Attempted Coup: Out in the Open and in Slow Motion?
Some in the Intelligence Community Have Turned on the WH,
Democrats and the Media Their Useful Idiots
Citing anonymous officials, the Post claims that Trump revealed to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak unspecified yet high-value information provided by a unidentified partner in the fight against the Islamic State, potentially jeopardizing operations against ISIS and compromising U.S. intelligence sources. The president reportedly revealed information surrounding an ISIS plot.
White House National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, the only identified source in WaPo’s report, denies that the president leaked information the U.S. government deemed classified. McMaster, who participated in the meeting, told the Post.

Trump Revealed Highly Classified Information To Russian Foreign Minister And Ambassador
Note the reporters were quoting “current and former [Obama] officials. Besides Trump, Lavrov and Kislyak, the only other officials present during the meeting were NSA head H.R. McMaster, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategy Dina Powell. All three have adamantly declared the story false.

FROM THE EARL:
Fakest Fake News Yet From The Washington ComPost
They open with a statement from McMasters that says ‘nothing happened’ other than normal routine discussion. The ComPost then swings over to a convenient ex-Obama staffer who proceeds to outline all the issues that may occur IF Trump had said anything on classified intel…and then gloms the two together as “officials” who concur. It’s Bullshit. The rest is the usual WAPOO mattress stuffing of every little thing the president has done that made them cry – and the comments below are blooming with calls for the guillotine and similar liberal dreams.

WHO THE HELL IS PAUL RYAN TO QUESTION POTUS?

Did Washington Post Just Publish Its 4th Major #FakeNews Story in Last Week?

The Washington Post has had a very busy week. The DC paper has published screaming headline after headline that turn out to be complete trash. Even the National Enquirer would be red-faced after at this point.
It’s as if the WaPo will print anything for clicks. They’ve become a click-bait site. What a disgrace.
Here are the four completely inaccurate reports published by the Trump-bashing Washington Post this past week:
1.) The Washington Post was completely off in their fake news reports last week Comey asking for more funds to investigate Trump before he was fired.
2.) The Washington Post was wrong about Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein threatening to resign
3.) The Washington Post claimed Sean Spicer was “hiding in the bushes.”
4.) The Washington Post accuses President Trump of releasing top secret information to the Russians during his meeting in the White House last week.
