More #FakeNews: ABC airs Kentucky gun range video as Turkish “bombing” of Syria

ABC apologized for their “mistake:”

“CORRECTION: We’ve taken down video that aired on “World News Tonight” Sunday and “Good Morning America” this morning that appeared to be from the Syrian border immediately after questions were raised about its accuracy,” the network tweeted. “ABC News regrets the error.”

This was NO MISTAKE. It was an attempt to sway peoples’ opinion about President Trump and his recent actions in Syria.

The MSM is ramping up their attempts to influence the 2020 elections. Don’t be fooled by the #FAKENEWS.

Read about the whole “apology” here.

Why we call them #FakeNews: CNN Insider Blows Whistle on Network President Jeff Zucker’s Personal Vendetta Against POTUS

Good job Project Veritas!

The whistle blower, Cary Poarch, works (probably now worked) at CNN’s Washington DC Bureau. Keep him in your prayers.

—————-

As expected, Cary announced that he is now unemployed. He has a GoFundMe account set up here.

Why Fox News’ ‘Impeach Trump’ poll is junk

Jim Holt reports for Gateway Pundit, Oct. 10, 2019, that just last week, Rush Limbaugh warned about Fox News turning against President Trump.

Rush is right.

Yesterday, Fox News had a stunning poll — that 51% of Americans want President Trump impeached on the Demonrats’ entirely-baseless Ukrainian accusations.

But the Fox News poll is deceptive and bogus because it over-sampled Democrats by as much as 14 points.

In polling, sampling bias is when participants in the poll are collected in such a way that some members of the intended population have a higher or lower sampling probability than others, which means the polling sample is not a random sample in which all individuals are equally likely to have been selected. And so the poll’s results can be due to the (biased) method of sampling, instead of a true reflection of the population.

In the case of the Fox News poll, Democrats were over-sampled or over-selected by as much as 14%. That means the poll was weighted in favor of Democrats by 14 points. All of which renders suspect the poll’s results.

New book on Kavanaugh by NYT reporters bombs

Do you remember that new book on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh which made new sexual assault charges, but were almost immediately debunked when friends of the alleged victim said she did not recall the attack?

The book, The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation, is co-authored by two New York Times reporters, Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly. Published by Portfolio on Sept. 17, 2019, the book was immediately panned by critics, and sales of the book have crashed.

Ha, ha, ha, ha!

Paul Bedard reports for the Washington Examiner, Oct. 4, 2019, that although the book was expected to sell at least 10,000-12,000 in the first two weeks, thereby propelling it onto the New York Times’ bestseller hardcover list, it has sold about a third of that in the first two weeks — which means 3,300 to 4,000 copies.

According to a publishing source’s latest BookScan numbers, which account for about 80% of sales, The Education of Brett Kavanaugh‘s number is 3,120. The source said: “If you add in ebooks — they may have sold a total of 4,000. That’s one of the most epic bombs in political publishing over the past decade.

Another publishing source who has handled several Washington-related nonfiction works said the pushback by conservatives and supporters of President Trump and Kavanaugh was harsh and hurt sales.

By comparison, another Kavanaugh book,Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court, which details the Democratic war on the Trump nominee, has sold 60,000 books and a total of 100,000 copies since its debut on July 9, 2019. It was written by Mollie Hemingway and Carrie Severino and published by Regnery.

As of today, Amazon ranks The Education of Brett Kavanaugh #9,041. The average rating by 47 customers is 3.2 out of 5.

Below are some of the reviews that gave the book a one-star rating:

“I did not vote for Trump in 2016, and as an independent I am far more interested in factual truth than which party “wins.” … This book is very disappointing. The author’s bias is evident…. If you are looking for biased reinforcement that Kavanuagh is ‘bad’ with little concern for actual truth and facts, this book is for you.” 

Already busted for lies…nothing but an attempted SMEAR CAMPAIGN. These two women who write for the New York Times fabricated a story and hope to CASH IN. Hopefully good Americans don’t allow it and they are sued. It is nothing but a HIT PIECE…in fact they knew subject was not true and wrote it anyway. That is call LIBEL. They went about writing an investigation piece and came up empty so they tried to make it into something it wasn’t…they claim there are 7 witnesses to the penis in Ramirez’s hand, but these people do not recall or it is hearsay, or they are anonymous, or they work for the CLINTONS… PURE FANTASY COOKED UP IN THE LIBERAL BRAIN.

So far, there is no proof that Kavanaugh did any of the things he was accused of (other than drinking beer). NO PROOF. Do we want to become the country where anybody can accuse anybody of anything without witnesses or proof and destroy their career? Makes no difference whether you like him or not, whether you believe the women or not – there needs to be credible witnesses AND PROOF. If one thinks the FBI takes sides, the side they take is liberal, not conservative, and they thoroughly investigated these accusations and found NO PROOF, no credible witnesses. Remember, you might be next! This is a very slippery slope!

Fake Hate Crime: Black girl admits she lied about being attacked by 3 white boys

Last month, this racially-motivated white-on-black hate-crime was widely reported by the MSM — that Amari Allen, 12, a black female student at the Immanuel Christian School in Springfield, Virginia, “where Vice President Mike Pence’s wife works,” said that on Monday, Sept. 23, 2019, she was assaulted by three sixth-grade white boys.

Allen claimed that she was about to go down a slide during recess when one of the boys grabbed her and put his hand over her mouth. The second boy grabbed her arms, while the third cut off some of her dreadlocks. Allen said, “They said my hair was nappy and I was ugly.”

 

Allen said that she was afraid to tell anyone until two days later, when a family member was doing her hair and noticed the missing locks. The girl and her grandfather told NBC4 in Washington, DC, that she broke down in tears as she recounted the assault to the family member. Allen’s grandfather said he was deeply shaken by her account: “My heart just broke. I was just paralyzed. I couldn’t get myself together.”

Allen said the same three boys have been bullying her since the beginning of the school year. The family reported the assault to the Fairfax County Police Department.

Insinuating guilt by association, MSM outlets (NBC News, Newsweek, New York Times, Washington Post, Daily Beast) made it a point that Vice President Mike Pence’s wife, Karen, teaches art part time at the private Christian school.

It turns out this is yet another instance of an entirely fake hate-crime.

On Sept. 30, 2019, Allen’s grandparents, who are her legal guardians, admitted that the girl had made the whole thing up. The grandparents issued the following apology that the school sent to the Washington Post:

To those young boys and their parents, we sincerely apologize for the pain and anxiety these allegations have caused. To the administrators and families of Immanuel Christian School, we are sorry for the damage this incident has done to trust within the school family and the undue scorn it has brought to the school. To the broader community, who rallied in such passionate support for our daughter, we apologize for betraying your trust.

We understand there will be consequences and we’re prepared to take responsibility for them. We know that it will take time to heal, and we hope and pray that the boys, their families, the school and the broader community will be able to forgive us in time.

But as Becket Adams of the Washington Examiner points out, the girl’s retraction will not be widely reported:

The reporters who tried to slime Pence with Allen’s allegation . . . know full well that the eventual correction almost never gets the same amount of attention as the original falsehood. Correction or not, the damage is already done. There will not be an end to this sort of sloppy and irresponsible reporting because the dirty not-so-secret is that a significant number of journalists see themselves more as being in the business of ‘resisting’ the Trump White House than keeping the public informed . . . . 

This keeps happening. Newsrooms keep embracing dubious allegations of harmful, bigoted behavior because too many reporters are not operating as reporters. They are operating instead as political activists. They’ve already drawn their conclusions about the Trump White House. Their goal now is to find supporting evidence, and things such as Allen’s since-recanted story are the perfect match.

Watch Clint Eastwood’s trailer for his new movie, “Richard Jewell”

I typically suggest on this site that one #BoycottHollywood.

My exemption is for movies that feature a pro-life message, are pro-military and made by conservatives.

Clint Eastwood’s latest film, “Richard Jewell,” is coming out December 13.

It tells the story of American security guard, Richard Jewell, who saved thousands of lives from an exploding bomb at the 1996 Olympics. He was unjustly vilified by journalists and the press who falsely report that he was a terrorist.

Most appropriate for this time we are living in in which we are bombarded with #FakeNews EVERY SINGLE DAY.

Plus, how could you not want to support this man? Remember this classic move:

Former Republican Governor of Massachusetts Calls For Trump To Be Executed

Bill Weld Wants Trump Arrested And Executed For Treason

The Fake Conservatives Are Showing Their True Colors

I voted for Weld back in earlier days, when he was a republican. I didn’t like him, but viewed him as the lesser of two evils. But I would never have predicted this.

Perhaps his appointment at the Vatican should have warned me, especially when he tried to cover the tracks of pedophile priests and bishops when he arrived in Rome. And now, who is more of a globalist than the current anti-pope?

On an episode of Morning Joe, the former governor literally pressed for the death penalty for the President!

National Review: No, Trump Is Not Facing the Death Penalty over Ukraine

By ANDREW C. MCCARTHY

“The details of the Trump–Zelensky communications are still emerging. Yet Weld decided he knows enough to pronounce that Trump’s purported “pressuring a foreign country to interfere with and control a U.S. election” is not a matter of merely “undermining democratic institutions.” No, no, “It’s treason pure and simple.” Not content with ludicrous overstatement, Weld took pains to add: “And the penalty for treason under the U.S. Code is death. That’s the only penalty.”

Death to his opponents! Why?

Here’s a clue: https://weld2020.org

He’s running for republican nomination against the President. So it’s not too hard to see one of his motivations, personal gain. That should explain the hyperbole at least. But does that make him fit to lead America?

And if he wants death for the President, how big a step is it to ask if he wants death for Trump’s supporters?

1998 US-Ukraine treaty on mutual assistance in criminal matters proves it’s another Democrat witch-hunt

A witch-hunt is “An investigation carried out ostensibly to uncover subversive activities but actually used to harass and undermine those with differing views.”

After the failure of their Russian-collusion witch-hunt, the Demonrats have manufactured yet another baseless pretext to impeach President Trump.

An anonymous Deep State whistleblower claims that in a July 25, 2019 phonecall with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Trump used $400 million in U.S. military aid to pressure Zelensky to open a probe into possible corruption involving Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.

Note: When Joe Biden was Obama’s Vice President, he lobbied for the removal of Ukraine’s State Prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who was investigating a Ukrainian energy company that employed Joe’s son, Hunter Biden, who served until earlier this year on the company’s board and was paid a reported $50,000 monthly salary. The investigation into the company ended without charges brought against Hunter.

Although the whistleblower had not actually heard the Trump-Zelensky phone conversation, but based his/her accusation on hearsay, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) used the phonecall as the pretext for the House to move to impeach Trump.

On Sept. 25, the White House released the transcript of the Trump-Zelensky phone call, which confirms Trump’s and Zelenksy’s accounts — that Trump made no reference to the $400 million U.S. military aid, nor did he use the aid as a quid pro quo to coerce Zelensky.

In the phonecall, Trump did ask Zelensky for help to investigate two matters:

  • The DNC (Democratic National Committee) server that was hacked in 2016.
  • What Hunter Biden was doing in Ukraine, about which Joe Biden bragged that he had stopped Hunter from being prosecuted.

Trump told Zelensky Attorney General William Barr and Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, would be in contact with Zelensky on the investigations.

A Constitutional-law attorney points out that it is entirely proper for Trump to ask Zelensky. In the words of the attorney:

The President is head of the Executive, which carries exclusive power to conduct foreign relations. No other branch of government has this power…. As Executive, the President is the ONLY official authorized to request foreign assistance in a corruption investigation…. Obtaining foreign cooperation in investigations of corruption by a US official is a matter of statecraft/diplomacy, ie, a function of foreign affairs…. CONCLUSION:  Trump not only is entirely within his powers to use foreign aid as a means to persuade Zelensky to investigate the Biden affair, I believe he was obligated to do so…. The fact Trump may obtain…political advantage from the investigation is simply irrelevant as a matter of law.

It turns out that there is actually a U.S. treaty with Ukraine on mutual legal assistance in criminal matters — a treaty that the Clinton Administration signed on July 22, 1998, in Kiev, Ukraine.

Below are excerpts from the Treaty Between the United States of America and Ukraine on Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters, which entered into force on February 27, 2001:

ARTICLE 1
SCOPE OF ASSISTANCE

1.The Contracting States shall provide mutual assistance, in accordance with the provisions of this Treaty, in connection with the investigation, prosecution, and prevention of offenses, and in proceedings related to criminal matters.

2. Assistance shall include:

(a) taking the testimony or statements of persons;

(b) providing documents, records, and other items;

(c) locating or identifying persons or items;

(d) serving documents;

(e) transferring persons in custody for testimony or other purposes;

(f) executing searches and seizures;

(g) assisting in proceedings related to immobilization and forfeiture of assets, restitution, and collection of fines; and

(h) any other form of assistance not prohibited by the laws of the Requested State.

3. Assistance shall be provided without regard to whether the conduct that is the subject of the investigation, prosecution, or proceeding in the Requesting State would constitute an offense under the laws of the Requested State.

4. This Treaty is intended solely for mutual legal assistance between the Contracting States. The provisions of this Treaty shall not give rise to a right on the part of any private person to obtain, suppress, or exclude any evidence, or to impede the execution of a request.

ARTICLE 2
CENTRAL AUTHORITIES

1. Each Contracting State shall have a Central Authority to make and receive requests pursuant to this Treaty.

2. For the United States of America, the Central Authority shall be the Attorney General or a person designated by the Attorney General. For Ukraine, the Central Authority shall be the Ministry of Justice and the Office of the Prosecutor General.

ARTICLE 5
EXECUTION OF REQUESTS

1.The Central Authority of the Requested State shall promptly execute the request or, when appropriate, shall transmit it to the authority having jurisdiction to do so. The competent authorities of the Requested State shall do everything in their power to execute the request. The competent authorities of the Requested State shall have authority to issue subpoenas, search and arrest warrants, or other orders necessary to execute the request.

In other words, President Trump did nothing wrong — even less any impeachable “high crime or misdemeanor” — in the July 25 Zelensky phonecall:

  • President Trump did NOT use U.S. military aid to pressure Ukraine to investigate Joe and Hunter Biden.
  • President Trump didn’t NEED to exert any pressure because the two countries already have a treaty that obliges the Ukrainian government, when requested by the U.S. government, to conduct a criminal investigation.
  • Furthermore, in that investigation, the U.S. “Central Authority” with whom the Ukrainian government communicates is none other than the U.S. Attorney General, i.e., William Barr, or a person designated by Barr, i.e., Rudy Giuliani.
