New York Times calls for war against President Trump using mafia Godfather tactics

The New York Times has abandoned all pretenses at objective journalism or even decency.

On July 6, 2018, the Times‘ editorial board published an editorial titled “Democrats: Do Not Surrender the Judiciary,” calling on Democrats and progressives to go to war against President Trump by deploying unscrupulous mafia tactics.

The editorial says:

With Republicans controlling the Senate and the judicial filibuster dead, the Democrats’ odds of denying President Trump a second Supreme Court appointment are slim. Barring some unforeseen development, the president will lock in a 5-to-4 conservative majority, shifting the court solidly to the right for a generation.

This is all the more reason for Democrats and progressives to take a page from “The Godfather” and go to the mattresses on this issue.

 

Here’s a screenshot of the editorial’s mafia rhetoric:

The New York Times tells Democrats to “take a page from” the 1972 movie, The Godfather. The following are the tactics used by the Corleone and rival crime families in the movie:

  • Spying
  • Garroting
  • Shooting (gunning down)
  • Ambush with machine guns
  • Car bomb
  • Sending a dead fish as a message that someone had been murdered (“sleeps with the fishes”)
  • Decapitating a horse and putting its bloody head in the bed as a warning

As Breitbart‘s John Nolte points out:

The term “going to the mattresses” means going to war.

The Urban Dictionary accurately describes the phrase as meaning “preparing for battle” within the context of a mob war, a violent mob war involving firearms, assassinations, and bombings.

The anti-Trump New York Times describes this editorial as a “call to arms” and adds that the “fire now raging against Mr. Trump and his nominees can’t be sustained indefinitely.”

As of July 7, Breitbart News has documented 190 acts (this list continues to be updated and now numbers 254) of media-approved violence and harassment against Trump and his supporters during the last 31 months.

The establishment media continue to ignore, downplay, encourage, and even justify violence against their political enemies on the right, and the result of this indifference and wink-wink encouragement is an epidemic of violence and harassment.

Simply put, the media have declared “open season” on Trump supporters.

And now, we have the “esteemed” New York Times editorial board calling for Democrats to use the mafia as their inspiration to stop a judicial appointment.

Keep in mind that the same media encouraging this violence against everyday Americans is the same media constantly campaigning to have those same everyday Americans left helpless by disarming them.

The New York Times‘ despicable editorial is reproached by a reader, Walked away, who wrote this comment on July 7, 2018:

As an African American man, I have lived in the DC for a considerable period of time, and I have never seen the type of vulgar, mean spiritedness rage after an election. After the election I went to my place of work, and the police told us to remain in the building because of the riots taking place.

When President Obama was elected that never happened. Yes, conservatives hated it, vowed to make him a one term president, but no burning cars, broken windows, bullied people because you wore an Obama or hat shirt.

Now we have a Congresswoman openly endorsing harassment of cabinet members – at their home, and while they carry out their daily duties! What if a child is involved?

For the first time in my life we have our own elected officials advocating for people who are not American citizens more them than American citizens.

From where I’m sitting, the Dems are positioning themselves for a great loss during the Midterms and quite possibly the General. The vitriolic narrative is one thing, but assaults and harassment are another. You cannot act or be like what you don’t want in the White House, and yet; that’s what the Dems are doing. When you endorse harassment, censorship and hatred, the sleeper effects of the silent majority will nail you, just as it did election night.

In my opinion, fix both your narratives and optics if you want to win the SCOTUS and in the voting booth. What I am witnessing from the Democratic party is not just unAmerican it’s scary.

Rep. Devin Nunes: NYT reporters are paid to write fake news by Democrat Super PACs

On March 15, 2018, in a televised interview on Fox News, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) said something stunning.

Beginning at the 5:20 mark in the video below, Congressman Nunes upbraided the “friends of the Democrats in the mainstream media”. Referring specifically to the New York Times, Nunes said the newspaper’s reporters “are heavily funded by Democratic Super PACs,” which the Times “should have disclosed”.

On March 12, 2018, after a 14-month investigation and who knows how much in taxpayer dollars, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence announced that they had completed their Russia investigation and found no evidence of collusion, coordination or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians.

Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX), who led the bipartisan investigation, said on FoxNews’ Special Report:

“We didn’t find any evidence of collusion and I don’t think [special counsel Robert Mueller] will either.”

Committee Chairman Devin Nunes issued this press release:

“After more than a year, the Committee has finished its Russia investigation and will now work on completing our report. I’d like to thank Congressmen Trey Gowdy, Tom Rooney, and especially Mike Conaway for the excellent job they’ve done leading this investigation. I’d also like to recognize the hard work undertaken by our other Committee members as well as our staff. Once the Committee’s final report is issued, we hope our findings and recommendations will be useful for improving security and integrity for the 2018 midterm elections.”

For public documents related to the Committee’s Russia investigation, click here.

In more good news, the New York Post reports that last night, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced he had fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, just two days before McCabe is due to retire.

Sessions said in a statement that investigators “concluded that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor — including under oath — on multiple occasions.”

As Deputy Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe signed a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) order, requesting the FISA Court to authorize electronic surveillance on Carter Page, a Trump campaign volunteer. The FISA orders were made under false pretenses because material and relevant information was omitted.

See “FISA Memo in text format. Lock them up!

Devin Nunes, 44, is a farmer who became a politician, having grown up on his family farm in Tulares County in California’s Central Valley. His grandparents were immigrants from the Azores, a tiny group of islands more than 800 miles off the coast of Portugal.

Nunes has a Master’s degree in agriculture from Cal Poly. When he was 14 years old, he became an entrepreneur when he bought seven heads of young cattle. He once said, “I never pictured myself running for office. I always wanted to be a winemaker and make cheese, that sort of thing.” (See “The Devin Nunes You Don’t Know“)

Nunes is that rare politician who has not sought to exploit his public office for financial gain.

Unlike corrupt politicians like Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee with a 2015 net worth of $3.5 million, Nunes’ net worth in 2016 and 2015 was estimated at only $158,001. (Heavy.com)

Project Veritas undercover exposé: NYT editor admits he is anti-Trump and a violent Antifa

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 18:40:16 +0000

eowyn2

We already have plenty of evidence of the MSM’s blatant and apologetic partisanship, and their campaign of destruction against President Trump. See:

Now, in another brilliant undercover sting, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has captured on video New York Times editor Nicholas Dudich‘s admission that, contrary to journalism’s professional obligation to be objective, not only is he not objective about President Trump in his NYT job, he deliberately targets Trump’s businesses in order to “bring him down”.

As the New York Times‘ audience strategy editor, Dudich is the gatekeeper of the Times‘ videos, in charge of placing videos on other platforms, such as Facebook, YouTube and Instagram. As he put it, “My voice is on every . . . my imprint is on every video we do.”

A former campaign operative for Obama and Hillary Clinton, Dudich also admits to be a former member of Antifa — the leftwing group identified as “domestic terrorists” by an April 2016 joint confidential report of the Obama administration’s FBI and DHS. Dudich also claims to be former FBI director James Comey’s godson.

Here’s the Project Veritas undercover video:

Some choice quotes from the mouth of Dudich:

(1) He went into journalism in order to continue his former work on the presidential campaigns of Obama and Hillary Clinton presidential campaigns, which Dudich calls “keep doing shit”:

“Obama in 2012 I worked with, on the Obama campaign in 2012. And then I worked on the Obama campaign in 2008 doing social media. Like I have that background, so when Hillary Clinton in 2016, they needed someone to . . . help them do video and how to make it heartfelt for Clinton. . . . Like, after the Clinton campaign, I’m like, no, I need to get back into news and keep doing shit because, like, this isn’t going to change.”

(2) In his work for the NYT, Dudich deliberately targets Trump’s businesses to bring him down:

“I’d target his [President Trump’s] businesses, his dumb fuck of a son, Donald Jr., and Eric, so they’re running Trump, like, the Trump business. I target that. Get people to boycott going to his hotels. Boycott. So a lot of the Trump brands, if you can ruin the Trump brand, and you put pressure on his business and you start investigating his business and you start shutting it down, or they’re hacking and other things. He cares about his business more than he cares about being President. He would resign. Or he’d lash out and do something incredibly illegal, which he would have to.”

(3) Dudich knows he’s in violation of the New York Times‘ professional ethics, specifically Section 62 of the Times’ Handbook on Ethical Journalism forbidding staff members from doing anything that might raise questions about their professional neutrality or that of the Times:

“Like, as a journalist, I’m not able to give any money to any political organization, I’m not able to volunteer for any political organization, I’m not able to work for any nonprofit or charity. Like, there’s a lot of guidelines and ethics.”

“I was, like, I saw the threat [posed by Trump] and I was, like, I want to do something . . . because Trump was . . . and still is a threat . . . to everything.

(4) Claiming former FBI director James Comey as his godfather, Dudich knows he has a conflict of interest because his behavior violates NYT‘s Section 107 that forbids staff members from writing or editing material or making news judgment people to whom they are related by blood or marriage, or with whom they have close person relationships:

James Comey “is my godfather . . . . My dad and mom knew him and his wife for a really long time  . . . No one at the Times has any idea about it.  So any time we [NYT] clip something from, whether it’s, like, the Sessions hearing or the Comey hearing, like, I should have recused myself, but I’m not ever telling anybody there that I have a tie with that, or else I don’t know if they’ll [NYT] keep me on.”

(5) He claims to have been recruited by the FBI to join Antifa and engaged in violence:

“Yeah, I used to be an Antifa punk once upon a time. I used to go after Nazi punks. I have punched neo-Nazis, many of them. [Pointing at a scar on his right hand] Actually, that is from a neo-Nazi’s tooth. Living in northeast Florida, pretty much southern Georgia, lot of neo-Nazis and a lot of KKK people. So I had fun. They’d start shit, I’m like I get to hit you. I’m so excited.”

Dudich then refused to “confirm or deny” that his godfather Comey knew about him being an Antifa who goes around punching people, because he doesn’t want to answer the question, “Did the FBI ask me to do that stuff?”

He then answered his own question:

“Why do you think I did it? [i.e, punching so-called neo-Nazis] I joined that stuff [Antifa] for them. I was an [FBI] asset. So it was intelligence gathering, seeing if they were, what their agenda was, whether they’re a threat or not.”

(6) Dudich says “some” members of Antifa are a threat to the United States for their “domestic terrorism,” which is consistent with the Obama administration’s FBI/DHS report in April 2016.

(7) Admits he lied about being Comey’s godson:

Project Veritas asked Dudich’s father and aunt. Both say they don’t know that Dudich is James Comey’s godson. Dudich Sr. says his son “was embellishing” when he claimed that the Dudich and Comey families are close, and that Dudich Sr. does not even know Comey.

The Project Veritas undercover journalist who had interviewed Nick Dudich then confronted him with what his father said, and asked how much of what Dudich told her is true. Dudich answered, “some,” and said he’s “not sure” why he would lie about Comey. He then said Comey is not his godfather and that he said it because “It’s a good story.”

O’Keefe concludes that the fact that Dudich admitted he’d lied about being Comey’s godson is very troublesome because Dudich is a “gatekeeper” of the New York Times. All of which raises legitimate questions about the Times‘ journalistic integrity.

In response to the video, New York Times spokeswoman Danielle Rhoades Ha, released this statement:

Based on what we’ve seen in the Project Veritas video, it appears that a recent hire in a junior position violated our ethical standards and misrepresented his role. In his role at The Times, he was responsible for posting already published video on other platforms and was never involved in the creation or editing of Times videos. We are reviewing the situation now.

Ha’s words are hollow, given the New York Times‘ track record. See:

O’Keefe promises that the Dudich sting is only the beginning of more Project Veritas exposés on the New York Times, so get your popcorn ready!
