This CNN headline says it all: Obama’s warped reality

obamas warped reality

The headline under Obama reads, “Obama: Trump’s doom-and-gloom doesn’t match reality.”

Obama also said this yesterday, in response to Trump’s speech at the RNC convention:

President Barack Obama this afternoon dismissed Donald Trump’s doom and gloom speech Thursday night at the Republican convention as a distortion of what’s happening in America.

‘This idea that America is somehow on the verge of collapse, this vision of violence and chaos everywhere, doesn’t really jive with the experience of most people,’ Obama stated.

The exiting president says he didn’t watch Republicans’ convention. But he did see the news clips, he said today, and thinks Trump and the Republican Party have it wrong. ‘Some of the fears that were expressed throughout the week just don’t jive with the facts,’ Obama said.

The crime rate in America has went down since Republican hero Ronald Reagan was president, Obama said Friday afternoon.

So have the incidences of murder and violence and intentional killing of police officers, even though it may not seem that way based on the violence recently in American cities. Illegal immigration has also slowed, he protested.

‘We have put unprecedented resources at our border,’ Obama asserted.

Elitist “journalist” is hostile in interview with pro-Brexit MEP

Christiane Amanpour is a British-Iranian “journalist.” She”s also a know-it-all, condescending, proggie who can’t respectfully interview someone with whom she disagrees with. CNN must be so proud.

This is Chiraq: Prom King, Symbol of Hope in CNN Docuseries Chicagoland, Is Fatally Shot

Not an unusual occurrence in Chiraq when you get involved with gangs.

From People Magazine: A Chicago man who was featured as a symbol of hope in a 2014 CNN documentary series about violence in the city was shot and killed on Thursday, PEOPLE confirms.

Lee McCullum, 22, was shot multiple times, including once in the head, and died on a Chicago street, Chicago police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office tell PEOPLE. On Friday, the homicide remained under investigation and no one had been charged, Officer Nicole Trainor says.

McCullum, at the time a student at Fenger High School in Chicago, appeared in several episodes of the 8-part CNN series Chicagoland and was the school’s prom king. He was “so personable,” the documentary’s executive producer Marc Levin tells PEOPLE. “You could see why he was a natural leader. He was somebody you could easily fall for.” McCullum had “tremendous potential,” Levin says.

The then-senior was a talented basketball player who had been accepted to Talladega College in Alabama but did not wind up attending. At once point in the series, he left town to escape the city’s violence. But McCullum also carried the baggage of the surroundings he grew up in.

“He was certainly honest about his past, his gang activities,” Levin says. “He saw his father shot. He lost so many friends … [and] he was homeless.”

In 2014, McCullum was shot twice in the leg during a drive-by shooting and just last month his girlfriend was shot and killed. Chicago police tell PEOPLE that McCullum was a documented gang member.

Three years after Sandy Hook, why do professional journalists still fail to report the news?

The silence from Anderson Cooper and the media to Dr. Tracy’s invitation/plea to reexamine Sandy Hook is deafening. So much for the Fourth Estate, whom America’s Founding Fathers had charged with the constitutional duty of checking and balancing government power.

There is ample evidence by now that the media collude with the CIA and other intelligence agencies. In 2003, a Florida appeals court judge even ruled that it is not illegal for the media to falsify news, i.e., to lie. See “7 reasons why we should be skeptical about the MSM”.

 

Memory Hole

On January 11, 2013 CNN’s Anderson Cooper sent reporters to my campus office, and later my residence, in an effort to inquire why a professor trained in media studies and criticism would ever publicly question the corporate news media’s reportage of the Sandy Hook massacre event.

Source: CNN.com

A major theme this author hit on in early 2013 was the fact that when it came to events such as Aurora or Sandy Hook, much of the journalism produced by Cooper and his superstar colleagues often left the public more confused than informed. As I have recently written, mainstream news accounts of such events wasn’t traditionally like this.

Some MHB readers will recall how I later gave Mr. Cooper a piece of my mind, imploring him to rise to the occasion and once and for all give the lie to those irksome conspiracy theorists.

Who shot the Texas jihadists?

It wasn’t any one of these guys

Defenders of Baltimore Race Riots

Using the death-in-police-custody of 25-year-old career criminal Freddie Gray as their excuse, and given permission to “purge” by their mayor, Blacks in Baltimore, Maryland, rioted, burned, and looted.

baltimore-mayor-stephanie-rawlings-blake

By Tuesday, April 28, 2015, this is the wreckage they left:

  • 15 buildings burnt down and countless others damaged and looted.
  • 144 cars burnt.
  • At least 15 police officers were injured.
  • Some 200 people were arrested.
  • Businesses, including black-owned businesses, were looted. Business owners fled for their lives, while looters just took what they wanted, including drugs from pharmacies. One shop-owner said he called police 50 times, but no one came. (Daily Mail)

Here’s a heartbreaking pic of the barely literate message penned by a black store-owner to the looters:

Baltimore riots destroyed black-owned store

These are the defenders of the Baltimore race rioters/burners/looters:

1. Morehouse College professor Marc Lamont Hill

Marc Lamont Hill

Hill said on CNN, April 27, 2015, “There shouldn’t be calm tonight,” responding to cries for peace coming from the Baltimore government, police, and even Gray’s own family. “I think there can be resistance to oppression and when resistance occurs, you can’t circumscribe resistance.” Hill said he’s “not calling these people rioters. I’m calling these uprisings. The city is not burning because of these protesters. The city is burning because the police killed Freddie Gray.” (Source: Unfiltered Patriot)

Lind said, “When nonviolence begins halfway through the war with the aggressor calling time out, it exposes itself as a ruse. When nonviolence is preached by the representatives of the state, while the state doles out heaps of violence to its citizens, it reveals itself to be a con.” (Source: Unfiltered Patriot)

3. CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin

On April 28, speaking to Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Maryland), Brooke Baldwin blamed military veterans who, returning home from war, become police officers to “do battle” in their communities. In her words: “All of these young people, and I love our nation’s veterans, but some of them are coming back from war, they don’t know the communities and they’re ready to do battle.”

Townhall.com says that “after a series of excuses,” Baldwin eventually apologized.
