FAKE NEWS: Underground Report on Obama running pedophile ring from White House

the-underground-report

A post today by trollsmasher5388 on The Underground Report blog made a bombshell of a claim — that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said that Obama had run a pedophile ring out of the White House. The post begins with this paragraph:

Julian Assange unveiled another bombshell Sunday evening, alleging that wikileaks now has hard proof that former President, Barack Hussein Obama, operated and participated in a pedophile ring based in the white house.

But trollsmasher5388 does not say on what medium or on what date Assange “unveiled” that bombshell “Sunday evening”. Since an image of Sean Hannity and Julian Assange on Fox News is above the paragraph that begins “Julian Assange unveiled . . . ,” the reader is left with the impression that Assange had “unveiled” that bombshell  on the Hannity Show last night (“Sunday evening”), except trollsmasher5388 doesn’t actually say that.

Trollsmasher5388 then proceeds to assert that:

A leaked email released today read,

“A young boy the age of 5. He will make the perfect catamite for the president. He will arrive from Romania on Tuesday. I’m sure the president will be pleased.”

But trollsmasher5388 does not say where that email was “leaked,” nor does he identify his source, nor does he provide readers with a link to the email. In fact, in trollsmasher5388’s entire post, there is not even one source link, embedded or otherwise. All of which means the reader cannot verify any of the sensational claims made by trollsmasher5388, which is irresponsible journalism at best, and just plain “fake news” at worst.

The Underground Report‘s readers swallowed trollsmasher5388’s fake news hook, line and sinker. The post has 8K+ links on Facebook, and readers posted 105 comments and counting. Curiously, The Underground Report has chosen not to publish a comment I had written 6 hours ago this morning, politely asking what trollsmaser5388’s source(s) are and where the video of Assange’s interview with Hannity is.

I also failed to find trollsmasher5388’s claims on the following sites, which you can verify for yourself:

  • WikiLeaks’ Twitter feed @wikileaks: No mention of Julian Assange saying that Obama ran a pedophile network
  • Sean Hannity’s TV show, Hannity, on Fox News: The most recent interview Hannity conducted was not yesterday, Feb. 19, but Friday, Feb. 17, with Jay Sekulowe on Trump administration’s leaks.
  • Sean Hannity’s radio talk show, The Sean Hannity Show: Nothing on Julian Assange
  • Sean Hannity’s Twitter feed @seanhannity: Nothing, nada, zilch.
  • YouTube: The most recent video of a Julian Assange interview on Hannity is the one more than a month ago on January 3, 2017.

Conclusion: trollsmasher5388’s post on The Underground Post blog is rank fake news.

It’s fake stuff like this that provides ammunition to the MSM and the Left to discredit the Alternative Media.

Shame on The Underground Post!

And shame on the indiscriminate readers of The Underground Post who swallowed and further propagate its lies via Facebook links and email, which is how I found out about it, from an email. The sender of the email knows who she is.

Hillary Clinton loyalist invokes Pizzagate in tweet on Mike Flynn’s resignation

Philippe Reines, 47, is a Hillary Clinton loyalist:

  • From 2002–2009, he was Senior Advisor & Press Secretary for then Senator Hillary Clinton.
  • In 2009, Reines followed Hillary to the State Department as her senior advisor.
  • Reines was quickly promoted to the position of Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Strategic Communications in 2010.
  • In the 2016 presidential election, he stood in for Donald Trump in Hillary’s debate preparations.

Reines is currently a “political consultant” and the managing director of Beacon Global Strategies LLC, a Washington, DC-based strategic advisory firm that claims to specialize in matters of international policy, foreign affairs, national defense, cyber, intelligence, and homeland security.

Yesterday, General Mike Flynn resigned from being President Trump’s national security adviser and apologized for telling then-Vice President-elect Mike Pence an untruth — that Flynn had not discussed the issue of sanctions with Russia’s ambassador to the United States.

Rejoicing at the news of Flynn’s resignation, Philippe Reines sent out this curious tweet, addressed to Flynn and his son:

philippe-reines-tweet-re-mike-flynn-resignaton

Less than 1½ hours after Reines sent that tweet, Hillary Clinton chimed in to support her former aide:

hillary-clinton-pizzagate-mike-flynn-tweet

Those who are familiar with the Alternative Media immediately know that Philippe Reines’ tweet is a reference to Pizzagate:

  • The word “Comets” in the tweet refers to Comet Ping Pong pizzeria, rumored to be a hub of D.C. pedophiles and child sex trafficking.
  • The words “pizza obsession” are an allusion to tweets sent by Mike Flynn and his son on Pizzagate.

On November 3, 2016, Mike Flynn sent out a tweet with a link to an article on True Pundit that the New York Police Department had found in the laptop former Congressman Anthony Weiner had shared with his wife Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s closest aide, emails and other content that implicate Hillary, her subordinates (such as John Podesta, the chair of her 2016 presidential campaign), and elected officials in serious crimes that include child exploitation and sex crimes with minors. Here’s Flynn’s tweet:

mike-flynns-pizzagate-tweet

3 days later on November 6, Mike Flynn Jr. tweeted this:

mike-flynn-jr-pizzagate-tweet

The Flynns’ tweets led to an uproar in the MSM, with Washington Post, the BBC, and others all closing ranks in denouncing Flynn and his son, and Pizzagate as “baseless conspiracy theory” and “fake news” although to this day, no law enforcement or any MSM journalist has actually investigated Pizzagate, which leads of course to this question:

How do they know Pizzagate is “fake news” if no one had investigated it?

Two days after Mike Flynn Jr.’s Pizzagate tweet, he was forced to leave President-Elect Trump’s transition team.

All of which brings us back to Philippe Reines’ and Hillary Clinton’s goading tweets about Mike Flynn’s resignation. If Pizzagate indeed is “fake news” and an entirely “baseless conspiracy theory,” why are Reines and Hillary so obsessed with it?

To quote William Shakespeare, they “doth protest too much”.

UPDATE (Feb. 15, 2017):

From this tweet of Philippe Reines lusting after Dallas actor Patrick Duffy, Reines is most likely a sodomist:

Singer wears MAGA gown to Grammy; sales of her album go through the roof

Don’t let the MSM con you that the American people don’t support President Trump.

Here’s an indicator of just how popular he is.

A singer of whom I — and probably you, too — had never heard has the guts to buck Hellywood’s zombie group-think by wearing a patriotic red, white and blue gown with the words “Make America Great Again” and “Trump” at last night’s Grammy Awards.

joy-villas-maga-gown

Her name is Joy Villa, 25.

Within hours of her Grammy red carpet appearance, Villa’s 2014 album, “I Make the Static,” went from #2,300 to #1 on Amazon.com, with 98% of reviews giving her album a maximum 5-star rating.

joy-villa

Villa told Fox News:

“I am 100 percent a Trump supporter. I believe in his message, I believe he will run this country like he runs his life, successfully. I stand as a proud American and I stand for a unified America that is tolerant of each other no matter who we voted for. I stand behind our President because that’s the American thing to do. I believe in love, above all.”

The singer said on Instagram:

“Go big, or go home. You can either stand for what you believe or fall for what you don’t. Above all make a choice for tolerance and love. Agree to disagree.”

But Villa and her gown received vicious, hate messages from the always-tolerant Left. Below is a sample, beginning with a one-word message, “Die,” from @kevinrizzi:

hate-joy-villa-tweets
hate-joy-villa-tweets3
hate-joy-villa-tweets1
hate-joy-villa-tweets2

Andre Soriano, the designer of Villa’s gown, said on Instagram the gown is a “tribute [to] OUR President Of The United States Of America” adding the hashtag #MAGA.

Soriano is an immigrant from the Philippines. A tolerant Progressive named David X Lodger wrote this on Soriano’s Facebook page:

 Wow Andre Soriano, you dumb as fuck, ain’t ya… if you love America so much – go back to the Philippines where Trump thinks you belong…. self-hating dumbass

To which Soriano gave this response:

Peace be with you.

I tried to get on Soriano’s website http://www.andresoriano.com/, but kept getting a “Service Unavailable” message, most likely because the website crashed from the sheer volume of people trying to access it.

TV host Stephen Colbert took orders from Clinton Foundation

We already know that the MSM, including the major TV news networks, are blatantly biased in favor of Democrats and against conservatives.

But it’s not just TV news. Studies show that Americans, especially millennials, increasingly get their news from late night TV talk shows.

What if I were to tell you that a major comedian-actor who made his reputation on Comedy Central’s popular news-parody series The Daily Show and now hosts the CBS Late Show, actually took direct orders from the Clinton Foundation?

That would be Stephen Colbert who joined The Daily Show in 1997, then had his own spun-off series The Colbert Report for 9 years, from 2005 to December 2014 when he left Comedy Central to succeed David Letterman as the host of CBS’s The Late Show.

craig-minassian

On April 10, 2013, Craig Minassian, Chief Communications Officer of the Clinton Foundation, sent an email to John Podesta to bring attention to two special episdoes of The Colbert Report that he, Minassian, “had them do”:

John,

I hope you got a chance to see the The Colbert Report’s two special episodes i had them do about CGI U that we taped in St. Louis this weekend. This is the link to last nights with a sketch about commitments and the monologue and WJC interview aired Monday. Hope you enjoy and looking forward to your feedback. Next will be your Colbert appearance!

Note:

  • John Podesta is a powerful, longtime Democratic Party operative whose political offices include: Chair of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign;Counselor to President Barack Obama (2014-2015); President Bill Clinton’s White House Chief of Staff (1998-2001).
  • CGI = one of the programs of the Clinton Foundation.
  • CGI U = the expansion of the Clinton Global Initiative model to to students, universities, and national youth organizations.
  • WJC = William Jefferson Clinton

Buzzfeed sued by firm named in Trump dossier

buzzfeed-ben-smith

Buzzfeed Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith

Hit the Fake News where is hurt$ the mo$t.

From NY Post: Buzzfeed was sued by the Russia-tied tech firm named in the dossier that contained unsubstantiated allegations against President Trump for including “libelous, unverified” information about the company, McClatchy reported Friday, citing the lawsuits.

The defamation suits were brought by XBT Holdings. Company lawyers reportedly filed complaints against BuzzFeed and its editor Ben Smith. A former British spy and his company were also named in complaints. The company seeks an “undetermined compensation for the damages.”

A Buzzfeed spokeman told McClatchy that it redacted the name of the company’s owner and “apologized for including it.”

McClatchy reported that the dossier said XBT and affiliates “had been using botnets and porn traffic to transmit viruses, plant bugs, steal data and conduct “altering operations” against the Democratic Party leadership.”

The suit reportedly says Alekej Gubarev, XBT’s owner, is married with three children and “has found his personal and professional reputation in tatters.”

The network did not give details about the information, saying the charges had not been verified, but BuzzFeed soon published the 35-page dossier. Most reputable news organizations, following up the story, also did not report the details.

Trump and his team was quick to attack news organizations that spread unsubstantiated reports about a damaging dossier last month collected on him by Russia, an incident that illustrates how old rules of journalism are being tested in today’s rapidly changing media world. Trump called BuzzFeed “a pile of garbage” for publishing the allegations.

CNN reported that Trump had been briefed by intelligence officials about compromising personal and financial information that Russia had collected on him.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and Vice President Pence sharply condemned those who spread the story. Spicer called BuzzFeed’s decision “outrageous and highly irresponsible,” while Pence said it was an effort by some in the media to delegitimize the election and discredit the incoming administration.

“The American people are sick and tired of it,” Pence said.

Meanwhile, Trump credited The New York Times, a newspaper he’s often been at odds with, for its decision not to publish what it could not independently verify.

Imam: Man lied about mom dying abroad after Trump’s travel ban

mike-hager-liar

Liar Mike Hager

Media and proggies’ narrative hardest hit.

From NY Post: A man who claimed his mom died abroad after she was denied entry to the United States under President Trump’s travel ban has lied about the details surrounding her death, according to a mosque leader close to the family.

Mike Hager told a news station WJBK on Tuesday that his sick mother died in Iraq on Saturday after being barred from entering the U.S., but Imam Husham Al-Hussainy denied the story, claiming the woman died five days before the ban was enacted.

Trump has denied admission to citizens from seven majority Muslim countries, including Iraq, for 90 days, while Syrians are banned indefinitely.

Hager, who lives in Michigan, said that he was able to enter the country because he has American citizenship, but that his mother and other family members were refused.

Hager had previously contacted Al-Hussainy, who leads the Karbalaa Islamic Educational Center in Dearborn. He told the Imam that his mom was suffering from kidney disease, and he planned a trip to Iraq to see her.

“The 22nd of January, his mom died,” Al-Hussainy said. “She did die but that was a couple weeks ago – before the ban.”

Al-Hussainy spoke out about the woman’s death after questions were raised about Hager’s claims.

“Since I lost my mom, [I’ve] been on heavy medication – I can’t even sleep. I did not make anything up,” Hager wrote in a text to WJBK.

CNN president Jeff Zucker threatens President Trump

journalists-creed

In the 2016 election, many in the mainstream media were in-your-face with their pro-Hillary partisan bias. See:

All boastful hyperbole aside, it was the Alternative Media’s reporting, especially the emails of the DNC, Hillary, and John Podesta released by the heroic WikiLeaks, which played an estimable role in helping Donald Trump defeat Hillary Clinton.

Although the New York Times has expressed regret for its biased reporting, others have not, notably the Washington Post and CNN (Cable News Network) who have only redoubled their undisguised and adamant opposition against President Trump.

It was Washington Post that approvingly and with malice cited an anonymous website’s (PropOrNot) defamation of of 200 AltMedia websites as intentional or unintentional agents of the Russian government in the 2016 election. See:

CNN also makes clear its continuing bias and hostility against Trump. See:

jeff-zucker

On January 17, 2017, CNN’s president Jeff Zucker went beyond the network’s biased reporting when he issued a veiled but real threat against President Trump.

In a discussion with Gabriel Sherman of New York magazine on Jan. 18, 2017, Zucker defended CNN’s report of a Russian dossier by Obama administration intelligence agencies containing an unverified fabrication of Trump, while in Moscow, hiring prostitutes to urinate on a hotel bed that Obama allegedly had slept in.

See “CNN Fake News: U.S. intelligence memo says Russia has ‘compromising’ information on Trump

When he was asked why CNN saw fit to publish allegations that “weren’t verified,” Zucker answered that “We didn’t pass judgment on the allegations. We reported we had not been able to corroborate them.”

Then he was asked if he’s “concerned about getting access to Trump,” given Trump bypassing a CNN reporter at his press conference the week before. This is what President of CNN Worldwide Jeff Zucker said:

I think the era of access journalism as we’ve known it is over. It doesn’t worry me that Donald Trump hasn’t done an interview with CNN in eight months. I think our credibility is higher than ever, and our viewership is higher than ever, and our reporting is as strong as ever. One of the things I think this administration hasn’t figured out yet is that there’s only one television network that is seen in Beijing, Moscow, Seoul, Tokyo, Pyongyang, Baghdad, Tehran, and Damascus — and that’s CNN. The perception of Donald Trump in capitals around the world is shaped, in many ways, by CNN. Continuing to have an adversarial relationship with that network is a mistake.

I take Zucker’s statement “Continuing to have an adversarial relationship with that network is a mistake” to be a threat that implies that CNN — a cable and satellite television channel owned by the Turner Broadcasting System division of a U.S. company, Time Warner  — will continue to engage in biased reporting in order to create and foment a negative perception of the President of the United States “in capitals around the world”.
