Whatever became of CNN

Check this clip out and tell me why Brooke Baldwin and CNN have devolved into a propaganda machine for the Democrats? You think you would ever hear a CNN anchor challenge any Democrat today? You think you will ever see any CNN anchor/reporter, challenge anything the left puts out? This video proves that CNN knows HOW to pursue the story, they have simply chosen wed themselves to the Democratic Party

BET to honor Maxine Waters

Ah, the doddering old fool is being honored for, well, ah, I suppose her incoherent ramblings

BET said the congresswoman will earn the Social Humanitarian Award for “being a fearless and outspoken advocate for under-served population.” The event, hosted by Oscar-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson, takes place Saturday at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark.

Videos of Waters have gone viral on social media, including her insisting that she was “reclaiming my time” at a recent congressional hearing.

Fearless and outspoken advocacy for the under-served? If you mean a scam artist who has gotten rich while her district in California suffers, then sure

of course there is also Waters IMPEACHMENTMANIA!

And, of course Waters does love her some Socialism

Of course to BET, this is unimportant. Waters is a Leftist, BET is devoted to leftist causes so, screw things like ethics

The California Democrat was accused of using her position as a member of the House Financial Services Committee in 2009 to steer $12 million in bailout money to the failing Boston-based OneUnited Bank, in which her husband had substantial stakes.

The federal cash had been earmarked for solvent banks with good banking practices, yet OneUnited, which failed all such criteria, got an exemption from the FDIC accounting rules.

Maybe that’s because Treasury Department bank examiners were subject to a barrage of calls from Waters’ grandson, Mikael Moore, muscling into an operation that was supposed to be judged impartially. In the end, the bank got its cash, leaving FDIC investigators fuming about “a travesty of justice,” and Moore is likely to get off with a slap on the wrist at most.

As for Waters, she skates. “This case is also about access,” Waters said, unwittingly indicating that “access” means access to taxpayer cash, for herself.

With the ethics charge gone, Waters won’t slink off in shame, but will now fail upward, poised to assume minority leadership of the Financial Services Committee.

Going back to the state of her district for a moment, Michelle Malkin stresses just how Waters has “served” her constituents

Waters has spent 37 years in office — many of those years as head of the Congressional Black Caucus — promising to make life better for constituents in economically ravaged South Central Los Angeles.

What do the denizens of her district have to show for it? Staggering levels of persistent unemployment, poverty, and gang violence as the 25th anniversary of the L.A. riots looms this coming weekend.

What does Representative Waters have to show for it?

She’s earned a lifetime of left-wing adoration for whitewashing the deadly riots as a “rebellion,” excusing the week-long shooting, looting, and arson orgy as “a spontaneous reaction to a lot of injustice and a lot of alienation and frustration,” and coddling Crips and Bloods gang members — with whom she performed the Electric Slide as part of her “fearless support and understanding of young people and their efforts at self-expression.”

I covered Waters in the early 1990s as an editorial writer and columnist at the Los Angeles Daily News. Her federally funded Maxine Waters Employment Preparation Center was a gang-infested boondoggle.

She embraced Damian Williams, the infamous thug who hurled a chunk of concrete at white truck driver Reginald Denny and performed a victory dance over the bloodied innocent bystander.

And she and her family personally profited from her rise to racially demagogic power.

She owns a tony mansion in predominantly white Hancock Park, several miles outside her congressional district.

She secured an ambassadorship to the Bahamas for her husband, a former pro football player and car salesman whose main qualification was having traveled to the island for a vacation.

Her daughter, Karen, has scooped up nearly $650,000 in payments from Mama Waters’s slate mailer operation for her federal campaign committee since 2006, the Washington Free Beacon reported this week. And Mama Waters owes her well-heeled daughter an additional $108,000.

Go read it all and be amazed at what BET is doing by honoring Rep. Waters. They are throwing away every shred of credibility they have frankly. They honor Waters, and heap praise on her, and for what? Actually helping Black people? No, it seems that her honors are derived from being a Leftist. BET, it would seem, cares more about furthering Leftism than about helping Black people. 

UH-OH! I wonder if the CNN Brownshirts will come after me now?

CNN has crossed a line. Think about this. They basically hunted down a person for making a gif file, for engaging in political satire, and threatened him unless he, straightened up, you might say. Ann Althouse weighs in

This is Andrew Kaczynski at CNN, who doesn’t seem to have any idea how bad this is:

CNN is not publishing “HanA**holeSolo’s” name because he is a private citizen who has issued an extensive statement of apology, showed his remorse by saying he has taken down all his offending posts, and because he said he is not going to repeat this ugly behavior on social media again. In addition, he said his statement could serve as an example to others not to do the same.

CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change….

So, when did the media’s job become bullying those engaging in free speech, satirists, or anyone that offends the Brownshirts at CNN?  I am sure Stalin would approve of CNN targeting someone for exercising a God-given liberty! Stalin did not believe in liberty, neither does CNN apparently. Who else might find themselves on CNN’s radar?

Remember, this is not about media bias, or fake news. This is a weaponized media going after an American citizen for engaging in commentary/satire/parody. Think long and hard about that. How can any CNN reporter or anchor not tender their resignation over these deplorable tactics? This is thuggery, period! Even liberal outlets are stunned

“I can’t emphasize how bad this is on CNN’s part,” wrote German Lopez, a reporter for liberal website Vox. “This is basically ‘don’t post stuff we don’t like or we’ll dox you.’ Extremely unethical.”

“That’s essentially blackmail. That’s CNN stating that it will out the guy if he dares to defy their political perspective or offends them sufficiently,” wrote conservative commentator Ben Shapiro. “The whole story is frightening, and obviously an attempt to both nail Trump and discourage people from smacking CNN.”

So, I suppose we all should do what we think best. And being intimidated? Not me! Here ya go CNN!

The cost of not enforcing immigration laws?

Daniel Greenfield has a powerful piece up, here is a snippet, but go read it all!

When Nabra Hassanen was killed by Darwin Martinez Torres, the media rushed to blame Islamophobia and Trump. The truth was simpler. It was the left’s own Illegalophilia that killed the Muslim teenager.

Torres, an illegal alien from El Salvador, had no interest in Hassanen’s religion. He got into an altercation with her friends. Hassanen happened to be the one he caught when her friends left her behind.

The murder happened in Fairfax County.

Earlier this year, Fairfax County Chief of Police Ed Roessler had assured illegal aliens that they had nothing to worry about. The police were not going to do anything about them until they killed someone.

“We’re not targeting someone on the street that we may or may not know is here unlawfully,” Deputy County Executive David Rohrer soothed.

Cecilia Wang, the Deputy Legal Director of the ACLU, demanded “accountability” for Hassanen’s death. That’s easy enough. The Virginia ACLU had pressured Fairfax County to go further in not cooperating with immigration authorities. Wang can demand “accountability” from the ACLU for Hassanen’s death.

Fairfax County’s refusal to investigate illegal aliens made it a magnet for a rising illegal alien population. Its jails have nearly 2,000 illegal aliens and the area has become a magnet for the El Salvadoran MS-13 gang. It’s unknown whether Torres was an MS-13 member, but his behavior matches the extreme brutality and fearless savagery that the group, which has been lethally active in Fairfax, is known for.

So, there you go, no big deal right? Obviously not to the Chamber of Commerce Republicans looking for cheap labor. Obviously not to the Democrats looking for future voters. Obviously not for the fools who think a nation can survive without strong, common sense immigration laws that demand assimilation, vetting, and put the best interest of America first. And damn sure not to a media that only cared about this story until they found out it did not fit their narrative that illegal aliens are all wonderful and noble.

You don’t have to be a Left-Wing Hack to work for MSNBC……………or CNN…..

………….but it helps! If Thomas Roberts had a lick of sense, he might be dangerous

Wow, just wow

Not to be outdone, here is Sally Kohn, possibly the most sincerely stupid person on earth

Egads!

And the media wonders why we call them fake news?

Remember when the infamous HBS bill in North Carolina was destroying tourism in North Carolina? The media fed us a steady diet of  doom for North Carolina’s economy if they did not change their “bathroom bill”. Well, turns out that was not exactly accurate.

The media constantly beat the gong that HB2, the so-called Bathroom Bill, would really hurt North Carolina economically. You had Progressive states implementing “travel bans” on the government dime (yet refusing to say what the bathroom policies were in government buildings in their states). But, hey, what’s this!

(WRAL) North Carolina Secretary of Commerce Anthony M. Copeland announced Monday that North Carolina tourism generated record visitor spending in 2016 with a total of $22.9 billion, a 4.3 percent increase from 2015.

“Nearly 50 million people from across the United States visited North Carolina destinations last year,” Copeland said. “The money they spent supported 218,340 jobs and more than 45,000 businesses.”

Tourism industry-supported employment topped 218,000 jobs to set another record for the state.

Oh the pathetic state of the news faking media. What they cannot grasp is this. Most Americans either do not care about the bill one way or another to cancel a vacation to a state. They also miss that most who do care about HBS supported it, because gender DOES matter!

I wonder what else the media types fake

You don’t have to be an uninformed buffoon to write editorials for the NY Times…………..

……….but boy does it help! Francis X Clines recently got out his crayons and construction paper to give us this bit of babbling idiocy

FAIRFAX, Va. — A poster figure of John Wayne, the mega-hero of Hollywood westerns, offers a greeting here at the gun museum’s gallery door as he holds his Winchester carbine at the ready and offers an amiably crooked grin. The bad guys in the movies never fully understood that the menace behind Wayne’s grin (“Whoa, take ‘er easy there, Pilgrim”) meant he was about to deliver blazing fantasies of triumphant gunfire that would leave them dead in the dust. It’s no wonder modern Florida legislators could not resist protecting actual shooters who draw and fire like John Wayne as guilt-free, “stand-your-ground” defenders.

Good grief! Stand-your-ground laws simply allow citizens to better defend themselves when confronted with lethal threats to themselves. This law is an extension of the Castle Doctrine

A castle doctrine, also known as a castle law or a defense of habitation law, is a legal doctrine that designates a person’s abode or any legally occupied place – e.g., a vehicle or home – as a place in which that person has protections and immunities permitting one, in certain circumstances, to use force (up to and including deadly force) to defend oneself against an intruder, free from legal prosecution for the consequences of the force used.[1] The term is most commonly used in the United States, though many other countries invoke comparable principles in their laws.

In short, the castle doctrine, and stand your ground laws simply affirm the basic human right of self-defense. In no ways do they allow anyone to simply “draw and shoot” on a whim, or without fearing for their safety. Clines should put his Crayolas down and read the laws, and the standards for self-defense they set. But, again, Clines is emoting, not thinking

But the cardboard fantasy of the good guy gunning down the bad guy is what makes the museum work as an enjoyable escape from the life-and-death reality of American gun carnage.

The fact is that millions of Americans carry firearms every day and never draw and shoot. These Americans have proven they are incredibly safe and understand the responsibility that carrying a deadly weapon requires. Most gun deaths, the vast majority are suicides, not homicides. Of those that are homicides, more than a few are justifiable homicides, A.K.A. self-defense. But the vast majority of times guns are used in self-defense, the weapon is not even fired. And, I would remind Clines that the lowest reliable stat on defensive gun uses is 108,000 annually, just a tad under 300 per day. And many more estimates are higher. What would the crime rate be if those Americans were disarmed? Or maybe the better question is would Clines even care about more innocent victims? Given this part of his screed I imagine he is far more invested in Leftist dogma than in human rights like self-defense

There are thousands of ingenious, gleaming rifles and handguns in displays about America’s gun-rich history of colonialism, immigration, expansionism and vigilante justice.

Ah yes, America is bad! Guns are bad! Americans with guns are bad! Clines is simply put, a typical mouth-breathing knuckle dragger who hates natural rights and individual liberties like self-defense. Here are some things Clines, if he were a thinker, would consider

Accidental shootings and violent  crime rates are down, and have been going down for over two decades. This at the same time that firearm ownership, gun sales, and Americans carrying firearms is going up and up. Clearly Clines view that gun owners are trigger happy idiots is fallacious. the U.S. is number one in firearm ownership, yet ranks 103 in the rate of homicides.  Yet he persists! In fact he goes full-bore BS

Gun safety researchers count more than 900 people killed by concealed-carry gun owners in the past decade, with only a tiny fraction of shootings ruled self-defense. Many of the deaths were suicides, and 31 were in mass shootings by concealed-carry owners. The gun lobby disputes all of this, but nevertheless opposes detailed public health research, perhaps because people could then see exactly how this nation’s gun toll dwarfs that of other democracies.

Oh, good Lord! Could Clines have found a more biased source? 31 mass shootings committed by CHL holders? Reading through the list I noted that gang members, people with violent criminal records were among the “CHL holders” that committed these “mass shootings”. Sorry, but people with criminal records are not issued carry permits, and certainly gang members would not bother with a permit would they? The fact is the source Clines uses is not credible or reputable. But, they regurgitate the lies he longs to hear, so, he gives these lies credence.

In the end, Clines is simply another brainwashed drone, bleating the bogus “facts” the Cult of Gun Control feeds him.

Media lies, and a death in Paris

Daniel Greenfield tells us a story that we need to hear. A story the corrupt media will not report because they are about protecting a narrative

Sarah Lucy Halimi was thrown out of the window of the third floor Paris apartment while she begged her Muslim killer to spare her life.

The 66-year-old director of an Orthodox Jewish nursery was woken from her sleep when she was violently beaten by her twenty something Muslim neighbor who then dragged her to the window.

She died on the street outside the building where she had lived for thirty years.

The killer had allegedly shouted, “Allahu Akbar”. In the tragic comedy of denial that every Islamic terrorism investigation inevitably becomes, the authorities are still hunting around for his motive.

Well, of course, we must not “jump to conclusions” right? And radical Muslims targeting a Jew? Not part of the narrative. Neither, of course is the reality of “no-go zones”

The street where Sarah Lucy’s broken body lay was the Rue de Vaucouleurs. It’s close to Belleville, a neighborhood whose name means “Beautiful town”, but which is better known these days as one of France’s “Zones Urbaines Sensibles” or “Sensitive Urban Zones.”

Or, without the euphemisms, parts of the beautiful town are really a “No Go Zone”. Or, if you prefer the official descriptions, a vibrant, colorful and multicultural community full of delightfully exotic foods.

Two years ago, smirking media reporters had a field day visiting Belleville to show that FOX News reports about No Go Zones in France were nonsense. “Look, at the couscous restaurants and colorful scarves, there’s nothing to worry about.”

Unless your delightfully multicultural Muslim neighbor decides to shove you through a window while shouting one of his religion’s exotic genocidal epithets about the Jews and all infidels.

Much more to read at the link. Greenfield is one of the best at exposing what the media ignores about what is happening in France, and other European nations. Go read it all, and understand that if the left and their insidious ideals of immigration, it can happen here as well.

Your biased headline of the day

So President Trump signed a law allowing states to deny federal money to organizations that provide abortion services. Here is how CNN chose to report that news

Trump privately signs anti-Planned Parenthood law

Well, that is a bit dramatic now isn’t it? But CNN did not stop there

President Donald Trump privately signed a bill on Thursday that allows states to withhold federal money from organizations that provide abortion services, including Planned Parenthood, a group frequently targetedby Republicans.

The bill, which the usually camera-friendly President signed without any media present, reverses an Obama-era regulation that prohibited states from withholding money from facilities that perform abortions, arguing that many of these facilities also provide other family planning and medical services.
The bulk of federal money Planned Parenthood receives, though, goes toward preventive health care, birth control, pregnancy tests and other women’s health services. Federal law prohibits taxpayer dollars from funding abortions and Planned Parenthood says 3% of the services it provides are abortions.
The article actually gets more biased as it goes. Go read the whole slanted, shoddy reporting.  the fact is this Planned Parenthood, that by the way was founded by noted Eugenist Margaret Sanger, does not need federal tax dollars. It is flush with $$$$$$$$$$ because killing unborn babies is big business
A budget statement for 2010 fiscal year from a Planned Parenthood clinic in Bryan, Texas, records an “abortion quota” of 1,135 procedures at $313.29 each, according to Abby Johnson, pro-life activist and former director of the Bryan Planned Parenthood clinic. She left the clinic in 2009 after assisting an ultrasound-guided abortion of a fetus at 13 weeks gestation.
Johnson tells National Review Online that the quota doubled from 2009 to 2010, while she had believed at the time that Planned Parenthood wanted to reduce it. After expressing her concerns to her supervisor, Johnson told The Daily Caller, her supervisor laughed and replied, “But Abby, abortion is how we make our money.”
So, what of the claim that Planned Parenthood desperately needs federal dollars?
In its last annual report, Planned Parenthood reported performing 327,166 abortions and receiving $540.6 million in taxpayer funding, or nearly $1.5 million per day. It also reported $58.2 million in excess revenue and over $1.3 billion in net assets.

The fact is this. Planned Parenthood does not need federal funding. Also there is no way that your tax dollars should be used to provide “abortion services”. President Trump did not sign an “anti-Planned Parenthood law”. He did not attack women’s access to healthcare or to basic health services. CNN ought to be ashamed, but, of course do not look for that to happen

Democrats are redefining pathetic with plagiarism smear of Gorsuch

The Pathetic Party 

Articles posted last night by Politico and BuzzFeed revealed similarities in Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch‘s academic writing with sources he reportedly failed to acknowledge. The articles gave examples of how Gorsuch’s 2006 book, The Future of Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia used some of the same language as a 1984 Indiana Law Journal article by Abigail Lawlis Kuzma.

There is a problem with the accusation, the person Gorsuch allegedly plagiarised says he clearly did not

Kuzma herself, however, doesn’t have a problem with it. She said in a statement on the matter:

I have reviewed both passages and do not see an issue here, even though the language is similar. These passages are factual, not analytical in nature, framing both the technical legal and medical circumstances of the “Baby/Infant Doe” case that occurred in 1982. Given that these passages both describe the basic facts of the case, it would have been awkward and difficult for Judge Gorsuch to have used different language.

So, will this refutation of the baseless charge stop the Left? Of course not. Even after he is confirmed, the Democrats will keep repeating the accusation. It is what they do. It is telling how far they are willing to stoop to stop Gorsuch. It shows he is the right guy for the SCOTUS

The mainstream media’s false attack on Sebastian Gorka

There they go again. This time the Washington Post smeared Sebastian Gorka, a senior adviser to President Trump. First here is what Gorka believes about fighting terrorism

For the most part, Gorka favors bolstered efforts against jihadists not through large-scale U.S. counterinsurgency and nation-building operations but through the more aggressive use of special operations, psychological warfare, direct action, technical support, and foreign internal defense, to stiffen the spines of our allies in Muslim armies throughout the region. Above all, Gorka favors a plain description of the enemy. And this is precisely what gets him into trouble with outlets such the Washington Post.

The Post’s print version of the Gorka profile carried the title “Gorka’s Views on Islam Drive Trump’s Security Agenda.” The implication, repeated throughout the article, is that Gorka views the Muslim religion itself as the enemy. But he says exactly the opposite.

Here is what he said in Defeating Jihad: We are not at war with Islam. The people most immanently in danger, in fact, are the nonviolent and non-extremist Muslims of the Middle East, such as our allies in Jordan and the modern Muslims of Egypt and the United Arab Emirates.

To repeat: The Muslim religion is not the enemy of the United States. The enemy is an extensive global jihadist movement that uses terrorist tactics against the United States and its allies. I find nothing in Gorka’s work to contradict this. In fact, I doubt that anyone associated with the Post profile bothered to read the man’s book. Gorka’s only claim is that jihadist militants consider themselves Muslim and are able to reference selected texts, including Koranic passages, that they interpret in support of their views. Obviously, these militants view themselves as, among other things, inspired by their own religion. The question of what is truly Islamic, as Gorka himself says in the Post interview, is for Muslims to decide.

Go read the entire piece, it goes deeper into what Gorka favors, and how the Post is like other media outlets is devolving into op-ed reporting rather than actual journalism and fact sharing. 

Rather than simply, and factually reporting on what Gorke stresses, the Post tries to paint him as Islamophobic

Here is a speech Gorka gave at The Heritage Foundation for anyone wanting to know more about his views

What the media misses about Trump’s Sweden statements

Sure, President Trump could have been clearer in referencing what is happening to Sweden. He needs to work on that. But, his words, though inartfully spoken, are based in truth. Tucker Carlson sets the record straight

take a look at what a police officer in Sweden posted about his country. As Jenn Jacques points out it validates Trumps words

A social media post from a Swedish police investigator is laying validation at the feet of the United State President.

Trump’s comments during a Florida campaign rally on Saturday – which some took as a misstatement about a supposed terror attack – dovetail with what Springare has been seeing during a typical week in Orebro, Sweden.

Speaking from Melbourne, FL. on Friday, the President stated:

“You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden, Sweden. Who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible.”

Five rapes, three assaults, a pair of extortions, blackmail, an attempted murder, violence against police and a robbery made up Springare’s caseload for a five-day period earlier this month, according to a Feb. 3 Facebook post he wrote. The suspects were all from Muslim-majority countries – Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia and Turkey – save for one Swedish man nabbed in a drug-related case.

In a Facebook post on February 3, 2016, police investigator Peter Springare shared his extreme displeasure with what has happened to his country after accepting hoards of Muslim immigrants:

You can go read his entire post at the link above

In short, the media is so busy trying to make the president look bad, and discredit him they are missing what price Sweden and the rest of Europe is paying for allowing massive immigration of people who do not share Western values. In other words, the media, again, is not investigating, reporting and informing. They are simply too busy attacking Trump to be what they are supposed to be, journalists.

Yeah, about that whole Mike Flynn hatchet job

He, apparently did, read this carefully Libs, nothing wrong! Can you say no there there?

NPR reported this morning that they are hearing from an intelligence official that the transcripts don’t show that Flynn did anything wrong, nor that he was acting under orders from Trump or someone else:

A current U.S. intelligence official tells NPR’s Mary Louise Kelly that there is no evidence of criminal wrongdoing in the transcripts of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, although the official noted that doesn’t rule out the possibility of illegal actions.

The official also says that there are recordings as well as transcripts of the calls, and that the transcripts don’t suggest Flynn was acting under orders in his conversations.

The intelligence official who has personally seen the transcripts told Mary Louise they contained “no evidence” of criminal wrongdoing, although the official said it can’t be definitively ruled out.

The official also said there was “absolutely nothing” in the transcripts that suggests Flynn was acting under instructions “or that the trail leads higher.”

Dear Liberals, when even NPR destroys your narrative………………

Fake News of the Day via NBC News

It is hard to say what topic leads in “fake news” but the media’s obsession with lying about guns is up there. Bob Owens catches the latest

Once again, “investigative reporter” Jeff Rossen is fear-mongering about the firearms industry, this time with an incredibly dishonest article about so-called “ghost guns,” a hysterical term used to describe firearms made from gun parts kits sold both in retail stores and online.

A legal loophole means that anyone, including criminals, can order a so-called “ghost gun” off the web without a background check – a gun with no serial number that can’t be traced.

The guns are built from kits and arrive in pieces, so under existing law, when they’re shipped, they aren’t guns. When assembled by their buyers, they’re lethal – and legal.

Federal officials like Graham Barlowe, the resident agent in charge of the ATF’s Sacramento office, say the loophole is dangerous.

“People that could not pass a background check,” said Barlowe, “are purchasing these unfinished receiver kits and making firearms because they know that if they went to a gun store, they wouldn’t be able to pass a background check.”

Police say criminals are well aware of the availability of “ghost guns,” and they’ve been used in shootings across the country, from Maryland to California.

Jeff Rossen, NBC News national investigative correspondent, went online to see how easy it would be to order these gun kits. He quickly found dozens of websites offering the product, and ordered a rifle kit, which he had shipped to former ATF agent Rick Vasquez in Virginia.

All the parts needed to assemble a gun were in the box when it arrived. It took Vasquez a couple of hours to assemble the weapon.

“This is now a completed semi-automatic firearm,” said Vasquez, showing it to Rossen. Rossen noted that there was no serial number on the finished product, making it untraceable.

Said Vasquez, “That is correct … You cannot trace this firearm.” He and Rossen then took the weapon to a range and fired it, where in Vasquez’s expert opinion, it “work[ed] great.”

Here’s the thing: former ATF agent Rick Vasquez and Jeff Rossen are boldly and directly lying to the viewers/readers of NBC News. I know this from firsthand experience, as I’ve built semi-automatic firearms from the ground up, including AR-15s and an AKM.

You cannot buy “all the parts” for any firearm online and simply slap the pieces together to build a functioning firearm as they mislead viewers, and this is a very easy claim to debunk.

Every firearm made or imported into the United States has a part of the frame or receiver that the ATF recognizes as the actual firearm that carries the serial number. All the other pieces are just parts. It is these other pieces—barrels, stocks, handguards, sights, triggers, etc—that can be bought online or in retail stores as individual parts or in parts kits, but the receiver must either be purchased as a serialized firearm like a whole gun, or it must be manufactured from an incomplete piece of material into a functional firearm.

Please go read it all, and understand the NBC News, and other media outlets have agendas. In this case it is to scare Americans into thinking it is a breeze to get a “dangerous” weapon without any background checks. It is nothing more than propaganda. This is also why you never see stories like this on the major media outlets

Fake News? The Left revels in it!

Bob Owens catches Teen Vogue in a massive misrepresentation about the death of Trayvon Martin

People are entitled to share their own opinions, but it’s grossly irresponsible and unethical for a “professional” publication (especially a magazine aimed at children) to blatantly lie to their readers. Sadly, that is precisely what Teen Vogue has done as they have attempted to turn Trayvon Martin into a martyr.

Almost five years ago, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by a “neighborhood watch” member as he walked home from a convenience store where he had purchased a juice drink and a package of Skittles. George Zimmerman, the man who shot Trayvon, believed him to be “possibly dangerous” because of his race and the fact that he was wearing a hoodie.

Trayvon’s murder – and Zimmerman’s eventual acquittal – incited nation-wide outrage and was part of launching the powerful Black Lives Matter movement. To this day, Trayvon’s name serves as a reminder of the progress that is necessary in order to improve the very real problem of police brutality and racism.

Today (February 5) would have been Trayvon’s 22nd birthday. All across social media, people are pausing to pay homage to Trayvon’s memory, while reminding the world that his life was taken prematurely and unfairly.

The article’s author, De Elizabeth, doesn’t just play fast and loose with her opinion, but objectively lies about the circumstances surrounding Martin’s February 26, 2012 death.

I highlighted the most gratuitous lies, such as Zimmern targeted Martin because of his race, and that Martin was murdered. And that his death somehow had something to do with  police brutality. Martin attacked Zimmerman, and Zimmerman, fearing for his life defended himself. If Martin’s life was taken “unfairly” it was no one’s fault but Martin’s

I am thinking that, other than the names, Elizabeth got everything wrong in her screed. And, given that anyone can find the truth about the shooting, it was self-defense, to the evidence, to the trial, I must conclude that Elizabeth lied deliberately. But, again what does the left think of truth? Absolutely nothing. Owens has more at the link

Fake News anyone?

So, President Trump had a disastrous day, threatening the Mexican president with invasion and hanging up on the Australian PM? Ah, not so much.Fisrt this from The Right Scoop

Late last night the office of the President of Mexico said the AP’s original characterization was simply false:

Eduardo Sanchez, spokesman for Mexico’s presidential office, said the conversation was respectful, not hostile or humiliating. “It is absolutely false that the president of the United States threatened to send troops to Mexico,” Sanchez said in an interview with Radio Formula on Wednesday night.

The Mexican Foreign Relations Department had earlier told The AP: “The negative statements you refer to did not occur during said telephone call. On the contrary, the tone was constructive.”

Oh, strike one. Next?

Malcolm Turnbull says despite a fiery tweet by Donald Trump today blasting a refugee agreement between Australia and the United States as a dumb deal, the US president has confirmed to him that he’ll honour it.

The prime minister has told Macquarie radio that the president’s press spokesman and the US embassy have also confirmed Mr Trump will honour the deal.

Mr Turnbull also denied Donald Trump hung up on him.

‘I want to make one observation about it, the report the president hung up is not correct, the call ended courteously.’

Well, darn! The media just cannot get it straight. I would have no doubt that the president and Turnbull had a less than peachy conversation, but it seems far less than the media would like us to think. Fake News anyone?
