Journalists are supposed to report, not make up, news.
Yesterday morning (June 4, 2017), UK independent journalist Mark @markantro tweeted a video he took of CNN staging a phony demonstration of a Muslim peace group in London. He writes:
CNN creating the narrative #FakeNews
Note the white police officers leaving before the CNN shot & the Asian officers coming in. They then left after they went off air!
The video shows CNN journalist Becky Anderson staging the street theater. See her giving directions to police (or crisis actors) in yellow jackets, and a group of Muslims (a child, men, and women in head scarves), as each lays down flowers to terrorist victims and holds up professionally-printed #TurnToLove #ForLondon signs.
Here’s a GIF of Anderson giving directions, in case YouTube takes down the video:
Anderson then proceeded to report the fake protest she’d just staged as real news. Here’s her tweet:
CNN Anderson’s fake news is being disseminated as real news by other media.
BBC reported it as real news. Scotsman Donald @DonOftheDead tweets:
AP journalist Raphael Satter also reported CNN Anderson’s fakery as real news by posting to his Twitter account a picture of the staged photo-op.
CNN is a habitual purveyor of fake news. See:

Even Democrats can’t stand her.
Amie Parnes reports for The Hill, June 4, 2017, that more than a dozen Democrats, including even staunch Hillary Clinton supporters and her former aides, who were interviewed by The Hill, all say they’d like Hillary to take a cue from Obama and step out of the spotlight.
They say her string of public remarks blaming her loss in November on any and all but herself — especially those blaming the Democratic National Committee (DNC) for her defeat which many took as an indirect criticism of Obama — are hurting the party and making Hillary look bitter.
Although many empathized with Hillary’s anger over former Director James Comey’s handling of the FBI’s probe into her (illegal) private email server, the Democrats unanimously said Hillary needs to rethink her blaming tour, including the recent Recode conference in California on June 1, 2017, in which she complained she had inherited nothing from a “bankrupt” Democratic Party led by Obama for eight years.
The Democrats who wish Hillary would shut up include:
Hillary’s longtime aides and advisers say she will not run for public office again, and that she feels liberated to finally speak her mind. They anticipate that Hillary will keep discussing the election, particularly to promote her upcoming book, which is expected to be published this fall.
And to that I say:
“Keep up the blame game, Hillary, so every American knows what a whiny, sore loser you are. You are ensuring another loss for your party in the 2018 midterm elections.”
Speaking of the 2018 election, Andrew O’Hehir, a Democrat and executive editor of Salon, has some interesting observations and predictions about his party’s prospects. In a recent article on Salon titled, “Wake up, liberals: There will be no 2018 ‘blue wave,’ no Democratic majority and no impeachment,” O’Hehir writes:
“For many people in . . . the left-center quadrant of the American political spectrum . . . what happened in 2016 was a nonsensical aberration . . . maybe there’s a fix right around the corner. . . .
I suspect it’s pointless to list all the things that are wrong with that scenario, because either you agree with me that it’s a delusional fantasy built on seven different varieties of magical thinking or you don’t, and in the latter case I am not likely to convince you….
Democrats have been virtually wiped out at the state and local level in non-coastal, non-metropolitan areas of the country: They had full control of 27 state legislatures in 2010, and partial control in five more; today they control 14 (with three splits)….
I have previously argued that the Democratic Party’s civil war was unavoidable and has been a long time coming…. But right now the Democratic Party has no clear sense of mission and no coherent national message, except that it is not the party of Donald Trump.”
O’Hehir predicts the GOP is “virtually guaranteed” a House majority until the next census and at least the 2022 midterms. As for the Senate, “Of the 33 Senate seats up for election next year, 25 are currently held by Democrats — and 10 of those are in states carried by Donald Trump last year. It’s far more likely that Republicans will gain seats in the Senate, perhaps by knocking off Joe Manchin in West Virginia or Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota, than lose any at all.”
It is my opinion that Trump Derangement Syndrome has turned the proggies’ butt hurt into a “tragic, dumba** comedy.” Just see my previous post on the “comic” Kathy Griffin” for verifiable proof.
From Yahoo: Critically acclaimed actor Robert De Niro said Sunday that the once-inspiring United States has descended into a “tragic, dumbass comedy.”
De Niro, 73, offered his assessment of the country under President Trump while delivering a commencement address at Brown University.
The movie star received an honorary doctorate of fine arts at the Ivy League school in Providence, R.I. He described what he sees as America’s fall from grace “in movie terms” and encouraged the 2017 graduating class to work toward repairing what’s damaged.
“When you started school, the country was an inspiring, uplifting drama,” he said. “You are graduating into a tragic, dumbass comedy. My advice is to lock the Van Wickle Gates and stay here. But if you do leave, work for the change. Work to stop the insanity. Start now so the Class of 2018 will graduate into a better world.”
De Niro, a well-known Democrat, was as outspoken in his support of former President Barack Obama and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as he is in his disdain for Trump.
During the presidential campaign, De Niro shot a video, denouncing Trump as a “national disaster” and “an embarrassment to this country.” It was supposed to be part of the #VoteYourFuture campaign but organizers considered it too partisan to include in the final project. The video was published separately.
“I mean he’s so blatantly stupid,” he said in the video. “He’s a punk, he’s a dog, he’s a pig, he’s a con, a bulls*** artist, a mutt who doesn’t know what he’s talking about, doesn’t do his homework, doesn’t care, thinks he’s gaming society, doesn’t pay his taxes. He’s an idiot.”
On the eve of Trump’s inauguration, De Niro again condemned Trump at a protest outside Trump Tower in New York. He gave a speech criticizing Trump’s rhetoric around immigration and said he hopes the former reality TV show star will abandon his “divisive, racist, misogynist, ignorant plan.”
“Just like our Founding Fathers, you can love our country and not love everything about it. That’s understandable. You can love your city, as I do, and not love everything about it either,” De Niro said in the speech. “That may have been what I was thinking about when I said I wish you-know-who would leave this city. I don’t care where he goes, I just never thought he’d go to Washington. He’s a bad example of this country, this city.”
A thread on the 4chan /pol/ chat forum of May 29, 2017 has a GIF of President Trump standing for a group portrait at the recent G-7 Summit in Sicily, Italy.
Compare Trump’s hand gesture at the G-7 to a tweet he posted on October 13, 2015 — of himself as Pepe the frog standing at a podium with the President of the United States Seal. It’s the same hand-touching-chin gesture.
Pepe the Frog is an anthropomorphic frog character from the comic series Boy’s Club by Matt Furie.
On 4chan, various illustrations of Pepe the frog have been used as reaction faces, including “feels good” Pepe, sad Pepe, angry Pepe, and smug Pepe — so much so that the Pepe meme is now associated with the Alt-Right.
During the 2016 presidential campaign, at a private fundraiser on September 9, Hillary Clinton called Trump supporters “a basket of deplorables”. The next day, Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., posted on Instagram a photoshop of The Expendables movie poster, featuring Donald Trump leading a group of prominent conservatives and a Trump-Pepe, with the title “The Deplorables” (instead of The Expendables).
That’s what President Trump was doing with his left hand in the G-7 group photo-op — signaling that he’s one of the Deplorables with the “smug Pepe” hand gesture.
Just wait till the MSM figure it out.
Their heads will explode. LOL
Reality is tough for some people.
From Daily Mail: Hillary Clinton has claimed she defeated Donald Trump in last year’s presidential election. Clinton, who received almost three million more votes than her reality television host opponent, was denied lost the presidency because she lost the electoral college count 304 to 227.
But the 69-year-old made the claim in a New York Magazine piece in which she discussed everything from sexism and voter suppression to James Comey costing her the White House, the country ‘stalling’ under Trump, and Russia’s ‘attack’ on American democracy.
Clinton started by dismissing the notion the election was won because of anger, which both Trump and Bernie Sanders, her opponent in the Democratic primary, tapped into. ‘I beat both of them,’ Clinton said, after saying anger is not ‘a good strategy for most people’.
‘You can’t be angry for yourself. You just can’t. You can be indignant, you can be annoyed, you can be frustrated, but you can’t be angry… I don’t think anger’s a strategy,’ she told the magazine.
The former Secretary of State then turned her attention to Comey’s ousting from the FBI by Trump. ‘I am less surprised than I am worried,’ she said.
‘Not that he shouldn’t have been disciplined. And certainly the Trump campaign relished everything that was done to me in July and then particularly in October. Having said that, I think what’s going on now is an effort to derail and bury the Russia inquiry, and I think that’s terrible for our country.’
Clinton then said the response from elected officials in Washington to Russia’s efforts to impact the election and sway it in Trump’s favor will be remembered for a long time.
‘(History) will judge whoever’s in Congress now as to how they respond to what was an attack on our country,’ she told New York Magazine.
‘It wasn’t the kind of horrible, physical attack we saw on 9/11 or Pearl Harbor, but it was an attack by an aggressive adversary who had been probing for many years to figure out how to undermine our democracy, influence our politics, even our elections.
‘Left unchecked… this will not just bite Democrats, or me; this will undermine our electoral system.’
The 69-year-old also described to the magazine how she knew on November 8 the race with Trump was close, but she thought she would ‘gut it out’ and win. ‘I was as surprised as anybody when I started getting returns, she said. ‘Because that’s not what anybody – with a couple of outliers – saw in the data. And the feel was good!
‘We had good crowds, we had lots of energy and enthusiasm, and I thought we were going to pull it off. And so did the other side, by the way. They did not believe they were going to win.’
When the issue of sexism was brought up by the magazine, Clinton explained how she hoped ‘the rawness of being a woman competing for the presidency would have dissipated’ would have gone away since she was defeated by President Obama eight years earlier.
But she found that while it had ‘somewhat diminished’, there was ‘a lot of implicit bias was just raging below the surface‘.
‘There were still very deep, raw feelings about gender that had not been resolved,’ she said. ‘There is a stark difference between men and women when it comes to success and likability. So the more successful a man is, the more likable he is. The more successful a woman is, the less likable she is. And it’s across every sector of society.’
Clinton was then asked about those in the wake of her defeat who were attempting to pin the blame for the loss entirely on her. ‘There’s always, what’s that word… Schadenfreude – “cut her down to size”, “too big for her own britches” – I get all that,’ she said.
‘I take responsibility, I admit that I’m not a perfect candidate – and don’t know anybody who was – but at the end of the day we did a lot of things right and we weathered enormous headwinds and we were on our way to winning. ‘So that is never going to satisfy my detractors. And you know, that’s their problem.‘
This womyn wouldn’t know the truth if it smacked her in the face.
From Hollywood Reporter: Hillary Clinton isn’t mentioning Donald Trump by name, but she peppered her Wellesley College commencement address with barbs aimed at her rival in last year’s presidential election.
Clinton on Friday urged the graduating class at her Massachusetts alma mater to fight against “full-fledged assaults on truth and reason.”
Clinton also called the Republican president’s budget proposal “a con” that is “shrouded in a trillion-dollar mathematical lie.” The former Democratic presidential nominee also said she is looking to the future and helping to train future leaders.
The speech marked a return engagement of sorts for Clinton. She delivered the student commencement address 48 years ago in 1969, the year she graduated from the all-women’s school. Clinton also delivered the 1992 commencement speech.
