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:

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

A bloviating race pimp, a loudmouth bigot and a man with common sense walk onto a CNN set

I think the readers can determine which is which here

Exit question. Is there anyone who uses more big words without actually saying anything than Michael Eric Dyson? And Symone Sanders? Is she anything else but an overt racist? Watch

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?
