More Mainstream Media Lies

The MSM actions of this past week may be the easiest example to show to people how the mainstream media manipulates and outright lies to further their agenda and why we do not trust them.  The video below is the perfect supplementary evidence you can provide as ammo to back up the point too.  Watch the initial encounter first.  Then watch the Paul Joseph Watson video, which InfoWars zoomed in at the point of contact to show the contact.  The media took this as doctoring the video and lambasted the White House for posting a “doctored” video from InfoWars and used this as a rallying cry of sorts.

Objectively speaking, Jim Acosta was being completely disrespectful, rude, and unreasonable.  He asked a question and President Trump answered it.  He allowed one question and wanted to give other reporters a chance to ask one too.  Jim continued to press a new question, interrupting, speaking over the President and other reporters, and knocked away the hand of the intern trying to take the mic away.

The White House then took away Jim Acosta’s hard pass, essentially for making contact with the intern.  Though he should’ve had his pass revoked for his childish behavior overall.  They then posted a video which was initially posted by InfoWars showing the incident and zooming in at the point of contact.  The mainstream media, disingenuous as we know they are, decried that this was a doctored video that misrepresented the actual encounter.  In reality, the video wasn’t doctored at all, but rather just a zoom in to show the contact to prove the White House was correct in their assessment.

This is why we hate the mainstream media.  Consider the facts, watch for yourself, see how they reacted, and judge accordingly.  The video was not doctored.  Doctoring is changing or obscuring a video with the express purpose of misrepresenting what happened.  This does not do that.  If you play the videos side by side you can see they are the same exact speed (not sped up or slowed down to exaggerate contact) and the slight quality difference is due to compression of the video.  That’s it.  Notice how rather than chastise their own reporter, who was completely out of line, they try and put this on the President as if he is suppressing the press.  To drive a narrative.  And to wind up the crazies on the left who look for anything and everything to be mad at President Trump, whether it’s based in reality or pure fiction.  If this isn’t clear cut proof to show how purposefully deceptive they are, how they peddle lies to drive their narrative, then I don’t know what is.  Use this to show why we do not trust them.  They simply do not, it seems cannot, objectively report events anymore.  Everything they put out is through a lens to drive their agenda.  And then they beam out this message to their NPCs who chirp the message to the NPC masses.  Pull in the late night hosts to spread the lie too.  Disgusting.

A Heartfelt Thanks and Apology

WesternFront Trenches

Today marks the 100th anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ended World War I.  We now recognize this as Veteran’s Day and extend it to all who have served in our armed forces.

America would not be what it is without these brave men. It is not an exaggeration to say the world could very realistically have been overrun by far left political ideologies, whether it was Communism or National Socialism, without the aid of the United States.  The victory of World War II may arguably be the height of American exceptionalism.  Or one could argue perhaps our greatest height was when we put a man on the moon.  All a distant dream without the bravery and sacrifice of millions of men.  You can forget about the technological boom and the Internet age as well.  For this we are eternally grateful.

It feels as though an apology is in order as well.  The hard work, toil, and sacrifices of these men and of our ancestors has put us in a position never seen before in human history.  We have access to previously unimaginable wealth and opportunity.  But with this great potential comes great responsibility, and potential downfall.  It can be too easy to become complacent.  Lazy.  Unappreciative.  Forgetful.  What have we done with the opportunity our ancestors have left for us?  Would they be proud to see how our country has turned out?  What we’ve done with it?  What they died to protect?

ww2-40

One could make a very good argument that they would not be happy to see how it all turned out.  What good is it to defend your country against potential invasion only to allow them to invade in another manner just one or two generations later with nary a fight?  Or to allow the Constitution and the law to be so obfuscated that the original intent from the Founding Fathers is now completely up for reinterpretation?  Or what about rewriting history entirely?  Or to pretend this wasn’t a nation founded by God fearing men.

No.  Today we take their sacrifices for granted.  We’ve become far too comfortable.  Comfortable to the point that we forget why armies and the threat of force are needed.  So comfortable that in fact we even vilify these brave men and now women who are willing to fight and die for our freedoms.  Even worse, some now even question what American exceptionalism is, and rather than fight for ideals such as free speech many think they know better and try to police it.  We even look back at some of our greatest leaders and call them bigots, racist, evil.  Statues are torn down.  History is simply erased and forgotten, and the lessons that go along with it too.

The only way we will survive as a nation is if we start to fight back.  We’ve tried acceptance of any and all ideas.  Of multiculturalism instead of assimilation.  It doesn’t work.  They cry for tolerance and acceptance, and when we give it to them they turn it on us and try to vilify us.  Or shame us into thinking we shouldn’t be proud of our ancestry or our country.  These evil forces need to be squelched out and stopped completely.  Total victory, not tolerance, appears to be the only way to stem the tide.  We’ve practiced appeasement rather than deterrence in the cultural war for far too long.  It hasn’t worked.  Victor Davis Hanson wrote a great piece recently on the anniversary and had this to say which I think fits in nicely:

What can we learn from the failed armistice of 1918?

Keeping the peace is sometimes even more difficult than winning a war.

For an enemy to accept defeat, it must be forced to understand why it lost, suffer the consequences of its aggressions—and only then be shown magnanimity and given help to rebuild.

Losers of a war cannot pick and choose when to quit fighting in enemy territory.

Had the Allies continued their offensives in the fall of 1918 and invaded Germany, the peace that followed might have more closely resembled the unconditional surrender and agreements that ended WWII, leading to far more than just 20 years of subsequent European calm.

Deterrence prevents war.

If we continue to begrudgingly accept these toxic ideologies and ideas coming from the left, rather than fight hard and hit hard back against them, the end result will turn out much worse than the comparably minimal pain of stopping it in its tracks right away.  It’s much harder to deport somebody once they’ve embedded themselves into this country than turn them away at the border.  Or to put a hard foot down on the atrocities they try to put into children’s programming, or how they try to program our children in school.  Obamacare became much harder to stop once it was written into law.

There can be no more compromise.  The left has shown their true colors far too often for us to be fooled by it anymore.  We have to push back and give no quarter.  Now is our best shot.  We have a man in office more willing than perhaps any president of the past 100+ years to take a stand and also be big enough to be able to withstand the pressure the mainstream media and swamp throw at him.  He cannot do it alone.  Nor should he have to.  Let us do our part to make our ancestors proud, and to leave future generations better off and with a shot at the American dream as it was once imagined.  What an utter shame it would be to throw it all away in the name of multiculturalism, or virtue signaling, or whatever other guilt they try to foist on us.

This is why we hate you, CNN

Don Lemon, a true bigot, came out earlier this week with this gem:

Not to demonize any one group or any one ethnicity…

…the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them.  There is no travel ban on them, there is no, y’know, they have a Muslim ban, there is no white guy ban, so what do we do about that?

Not to label an entire group of people or anything, but it’s this entire group of people called white men who are the biggest terror threat to this country.  Do you think CNN did anything about it?  Make him apologize?  Cancel his show?  Suspension?  Of course not.  Megyn Kelly, whom I have no affection for, was fired for saying it was okay for kids to wear black face on Halloween for their Halloween costume.  And that was apparently too much.  Makeup for Halloween.  Let that sink in.  Yet he can call all white people the biggest terror threat, and intimate that maybe there should be a travel ban on them, and gets off without any outrage whatsoever from CNN or any of the mainstream media.

This is why we hate you guys, MSM.  The double standard.  We are sick and tired of being vilified and told we are the bad guys and all of the world’s problems are because of us.  No.  This is simply not true.  I hate to break it to you, as much as it will hurt you to hear this, but white men made this country what it is today.  They created the greatest civilization ever seen on the face of Earth and in all of human history.  But yes they are the biggest threat today.  Sure.  Don, if white men are so evil, why do you sleep with one every night?  That seems a little contradictory, does it not?

Trump to sign executive order ending birthright citizenship for illegals

YES!!!

That’s all that needs to be said.  This is a monumental step forward in an immigration debate that has stalled and sputtered for decades.  Via Fox News:

President Trump said in a newly released interview he plans to sign an executive order ending so-called “birthright citizenship” for babies of non-citizens born on U.S. soil — a move that would mark a major overhaul of immigration policy and trigger an almost-certain legal battle.

Birthright citizenship allows any baby born on U.S. soil to automatically be a U.S. citizen.

The policy, which stems from a disputed but long-recognized interpretation of the 14th Amendment, has given rise to what Trump considers abuse of the immigration system. Trump told “Axios on HBO” that the U.S. is the only country in the world “where a person comes in and has a baby, and the baby is essentially a citizen of the United States … with all of those benefits.”

Despite Trump’s claim, the U.S. is not the only nation to have birthright citizenship, but the policy is rare outside of the Americas. Trump called birthright citizenship “ridiculous” and said that “it has to end.”

Under current policy, anyone born in the U.S. – regardless of whether they are delivered by a non-citizen or undocumented immigrant – is considered a citizen. The interpretation has been blamed for so-called ‘birth tourism’ and chain migration.

The 14th Amendment states: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.”

Trump, should he pursue the executive order, would face court challenges, and it remains unclear whether he could prevail. Many legal scholars would argue such a change requires a constitutional amendment. But some conservatives argue the existing amendment holds room for interpretation.

Take a look at this article I wrote a few months back regarding the interpretation of the 14th amendment for more insight.  The debate portion of this is that the 14th amendment does not explicitly say one way or the other whether it should be legal for non-citizens (or invaders) and there was historical precedence which would suggest illegals were NOT included in it.  As you would of course hope and expect, but sadly that has not been the case historically here.  Those against Trump’s executive order will say he cannot put an EO on something that isn’t technically law in this direction either.

Regardless if one thinks he can or cannot this will force the issue to make longstanding change to a broken immigration policy.  I’ve posted a video from Styxhexenhammer down below that expounds on this nicely.  In order to have a functioning country we need to be a nation of laws.  Laws that are upheld and followed.  Birth tourism, where people from other countries vacation here with the specific intent of having a baby here who is then a citizen and can then be used to gain citizenship themselves, is a huge industry.  Do we really think that people intent on breaking our laws from the beginning, literally from birth, will make upstanding citizens in the long term?  Seriously?

Of course not.  This should discourage a multitude of wannabe pseudo-Americans to try in the first place, which is a huge first step in stopping the problem.  Couple this with a wall, ending chain migration in general, and slowing down legal immigration to a trickle will all greatly improve the lives of AMERICAN citizens.  The people who, you know, should be the main priority of every politician running for office here in AMERICA.

Bravo to President Trump, yet again, for standing up against the mob and bully tactics of the mainstream media.  Politicians have caved for far too long to sad images of children on TV or the moral “outrage” from hysterical leftists.  It takes a real leader to ignore the noise, ignore the hysteria, and do what’s right, even if it paints a bigger target on his back.

NBC covered up news that would have helped Kavanaugh

It has come to light that NBC held key information that would have helped Kavanaugh during the toughest moments of his nomination but chose to withhold it.  I wonder why.  Per Breitbart:

On September 30, a week prior to Kavanaugh’s confirmation, during the most intense days of this scandal, when Kavanaugh’s confirmation was still very much in doubt, here is what NBC did not want the public to know…

If you recall, although he withheld the name, Avenatti tweeted out a sworn statement from a woman who backed up Swetnick’s outrageous rape allegations. In her statement, this second woman swore that she, too, had witnessed Kavanaugh spike punch bowls and take sexual advantage of girls.

Well, unbeknownst to us, NBC interviewed this anonymous witness on September 30, and she recanted!

But only now is NBC News bothering to report this bombshell:

Referring to Kavanaugh spiking the punch, “I didn’t ever think it was Brett,” the woman said to reporters in a phone interview arranged by Avenatti on Sept. 30 after repeated requests to speak with other witnesses who might corroborate Swetnick’s claims.

When asked in the phone interview if she ever witnessed Kavanaugh act inappropriately towards girls, the woman replied, “no.”

Wait, it gets worse…

On October 3, NBC News again spoke to this woman, and this time, she all but accused Avenatti of fabricating her statement:

[R]eached by phone independently from Avenatti on Oct. 3, the woman said she only “skimmed” the declaration. After reviewing the statement, she wrote in a text on Oct. 4 to NBC News: “It is incorrect that I saw Brett spike the punch. I didn’t see anyone spike the punch…I was very clear with Michael Avenatti from day one.”

When pressed about abusive behavior towards girls, she wrote in a text: “I would not ever allow anyone to be abusive in my presence. Male or female.”

And now, we come to the grand conclusion…

When asked about the total contradiction between his client’s sworn statement and what she told NBC, after it no longer matters, NBC now informs us, “At one point, in an apparent effort to thwart the reporting process, [Avenatti] added in the phone call, “How about this, on background, it’s not the same woman. What are you going to do with that?”

So Avenatti’s witness, the woman he brought forward to bolster Swetnick’s serial rape claim, totally recanted to NBC News, and NBC News hid this news until now.

Moreover, NBC News believed Kavanaugh’s chief tormentor —  Avenatti  — was attempting to “thwart the reporting process,” and NBC also chose to hide this information until long after it mattered.

So what we have here is an NBC News eager to publish completely unfounded allegations of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh while at the same time hiding vitally important information that would have helped to clear Kavanaugh at the most crucial time of this scandal.

In other words, in a partisan effort to derail Kavanaugh’s confirmation, to do its part to keep Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court, NBC News published uncorroborated smears against him and then engaged in a deliberate cover up of a legitimate story that backed up Kavanaugh’s claim of his innocence and his claim that there was a coordinated campaign at work to personally destroy him.

And this is example #2349807523478902354789023548790235487902345 why you should not trust the mainstream media.  They do not present the news in anything close to an unbiased fashion.  Perhaps they never have.  35 years ago 90% of the media was controlled by 50 companies.  Today, 90% of the media is controlled by just 6.  Almost 300 million Americans rely on just these six companies to get their news.  You are simply being naive if you don’t think that they have an agenda.  They want you to think in a certain way.  They want to control what you buy, how you buy it, what you think, who you should vote for, and what you should feel about every event that happens across the globe.  And their reasons are not for your betterment.  NBC wanted you to think Kavanaugh was a serial rapist.  They had evidence to refute the one claim made against him for this and chose not to run with it.  Ask yourself this: why should NBC care whether Kavanaugh is nominated or not?  What reason would they have to not report this key information if they were an unbiased news network that didn’t care whether he was nominated or not but just wanted to report the news.  They put the effort in to do “investigative journalism” so why not actually report the findings?

Spread this to your friends who still rely on the MSM to get their news.  Gently remind them of things like this, or their election predictions, when you receive news of how the midterm polling is going or what shooter or bomber did today and what motivations they had.  Question why they may report on some things and not on others.  Here’s an infographic that’s a little old (sub Comcast in for GE and one or two other minor updates) but you’ll get an idea.  This is all just a big business.  They will report on what needs reporting to further their interests.  Not to keep you “in the know” on what’s happening here or around the world.

 

It will only get worse

Riots broke out in Chemnitz after a German man was killed by two migrants from Syria and Iraq.  Via RT:

German society must firmly stand against the outbursts of right-wing extremism, Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said. His call came after right-wing protesters clashed with police at an anti-migrant rally.

“We must stand up to the right-wing extremists. We can’t duck away. We must show our faces against neo-Nazis and anti-Semites,” Maas told German paper Bild on Sunday. “Only then will Germany’s reputation not be permanently marred by xenophobic crimes.”

Reflecting on the violence, which erupted during anti-migrant demonstrations in Chemnitz the day before, the minister argued that Germans of his generation sometimes “take for granted” their existing freedoms and democracy, and that has to change.

Notice how the politicians come out in droves only when it’s coming from the native population or anything slightly right of center.  They must be “right-wing extremists” because they are angry that someone who doesn’t belong in their country in the first place is killing their fellow countrymen.  The absolute worst thing that could be suggested of a German is that they show any outward rejection of some other group of people.  World War 2 has utterly destroyed their psyches.  They continue on in a guilt-ridden stupor, ready to self-destruct and allow their country to be overrun and ruined for fear of being called a racist or xenophobe by expressing any semblance of doubt or resistance.  So sad.

Riots

As native populations continued to be overrun by non-stop 3rd world immigration these clashes will only get worse.  Notice how the media will always portray the natives who are trying to voice their concerns as the bad guys every single time.  Notice also how the immigration is only encouraged and expected in Western countries.  Israel, for one, is happy to tell other countries to take on more people, while they themselves strengthen their borders and impose strict immigration enforcement to prevent the exact invasion that is occurring everywhere else.

The end result here will not be good.  As much as they want you to believe it, this level of multiculturalism is suicide.  Especially when incoming migrants are no longer being taught to assimilate, but rather bring their cultures with them and spread these disparate cultures all throughout the land.  Which as we know will only lead to war.  The clash of cultures and differences in belief systems, differences in right and wrong, will inevitably lead to conflict as ideologies that cannot possibly live peacefully together are thrust ever closer to each other.

Black Facts Matter

Jerome Hudson wrote an excellent piece on Breitbart about black crime statistics.  It should be an eye-opener for those not paying attention and runs totally counter to what the MSM wants you to believe, mainly that white cops are racist and white people are out to get black people all the time, as if they had nothing better to do.  Five facts from the article:

FACT 1. Over 1,400 more black Americans murdered other blacks in two years than were lynched from 1882 to 1968.

According to FBI data, 4,906 black people murdered other blacks in 2010 and 2011. That is 1,460 more black Americans killed by other blacks in two years than were lynched from 1882 to 1968, according to the Tuskegee Institute.

FACT 2. Black People (mostly men) commit a grossly disproportionate amount of crime.

In 2012, white males were 38 percent of the population and committed 4,582 murders. That same year, black males were just 6.6 percent of the population but committed a staggering 5,531 murders.

In other words: black people–at just a fifth of the size–committed almost 1,000 more murders than their white counterparts.

The figures above highlight a horrific truth that black racialists and white liberals routinely ignore: Lawbreaking black Americans, young black males particularly, put themselves in close proximity to (mostly white male) police officers at rates sometimes five to 10 times higher than whites. This is a recipe for disaster. Thusly….

FACT 3. Despite making up just 13% of the population, blacks committed half of homicides in the United States for nearly 30 years.

DOJ statistics show that between 1980 and 2008, black people committed 52% of homicides.

In 2013, black criminals committed 38% of the murders. Whites accounted for just 31 percent.

There are five times fewer black people than white people in America and, yet, they consistently carry out a larger share of the crimes? Given this rate, it’s no wonder that there aren’t more assistances where cops kill black criminals.

FACT 4. Chicago’s death toll is almost equal to that of both wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, combined.

There have been almost as many deaths in one American city as there have been in the two major wars carried out by the U.S. military this century.

Chicago’s death toll from 2001November, 26 2015 stands at 7,401. The combined total deaths during Operation Iraqi Freedom (2003-2015: 4,815) and Operation Enduring Freedom/Afghanistan (2001-2015: 3,506), total 8,321.

FACT 5. It would take cops 40 years to kill as many black men as have died at the hands of others black men in 2012 alone.

University of Toledo criminologist Dr. Richard R. Johnson examined the latest crime data from the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Reports and Centers for Disease Control and found that an average of 4,472 black men were killed by other black men annually between Jan. 1, 2009, and Dec. 31, 2012.

Professor Johnson’s research further concluded that 112 black men died from both justified and unjustified police-involved killings annually during this same period.

Black Lives Matter does not care about black people.  If they truly did you’d hear more about programs to end black on black violence.  Instead they only ever come out of the woodwork when there’s an altercation between a white cop and black man.  As the article points out, the rare white-cop-killing-black-man shouldn’t be surprising given the amount of times a cop is needed for a crime committed by a black man.  It has nothing to do with racism.  The recent onslaught of bodycam footage only confirms this.

And as with most causes the left supports these days, their motives are often hidden by superficial fronts of “equality” or “justice” or something of the sort.  The left pushes racism in this regard to further an agenda, much like they push school shootings to try and push gun control, when in reality the facts pretty much always discredit what they are saying.

This is why so many hold so much disdain for the mainstream media.  They push lies that are utterly destructive and divisive.  It’s why many think they are an enemy of the state, and rightfully so.  Mainstream journalism seems to have died years ago.  And when 6 companies control 90% of the media in America it used to be easy to set and control the narrative.  This has changed a bit in the past few years as alternative media has had a meteoric rise and chipped away at the credibility of the CNNs of the world.  Imagine if mainstream media actually worked to publish facts as they came up, not based on a narrative, but just to actually report the news as it happened.  The fact that sentence even needs to be typed out tells you all you need to know about the state we’re in.
