Boycott: Upcoming Emmy’s hosted by Stephen Colbert, who makes Nazi salute in criticism of Trump

CBS must be so proud of this hack

Trump basher Stephen Colbert is hosting the Emmy’s this year which is scheduled for September 17 on CBS. Expect the award ceremony to be a full-on production of Trump Derangement Syndrome. I for one will not be watching this show full of elite, hypocritical narcissists.

From Daily Mail: Stephen Colbert, the host of CBS Late Show who has been one of President Donald Trump’s most vocal critics, is once again generating controversy on Friday after he made a Nazi salute in reference to Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon.

Colbert, CBS’s late night star who once made a crude remark about President Donald Trump’s relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, returned to host his show this week after a two-week hiatus.

In his opening monologue, Colbert cracked jokes about Bannon, the now-departed White House aide who returned to head alt-right news site Breitbart. Colbert’s jokes were interspersed with clips of Bannon talking to Charlie Rose of 60 Minutes in an interview.

CBS has released portions of the interview in which Bannon is heard talking about a number of issues, including Trump’s controversial reaction to the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last month.

Trump was criticized for blaming ‘both sides’ after an anti-racist counter-protester was killed and 20 others were injured when a suspected neo-Nazi ploughed his car into a crowd of people on August 12.

In his 60 Minutes interview, Bannon defended Trump’s response to Charlottesville. ‘By the way, after the Charlottesville situation – that’s what I told John Kelly – I was the only guy that came out and tried to defend him,’ Bannon told 60 Minutes. ‘I was the only guy that said, “He’s talking about something that’s… taking it up to a higher level”,’ he said.

That’s when Colbert interjected.

‘Yeah, he’s definitely taking it to a higher level. I’d say his support is about up there. Right around here,’ the former Colbert Report host said as he stretched his arm out to a 45-degree angle with his fingers extended similar to how the Nazis used to salute Adolf Hitler.

‘Or over here,’ Colbert said, adjusting his arm to give another mock Nazi salute. ‘Somewhere up there.’

Colbert has drawn criticism in the past for controversial statements about Trump. On his May 1 broadcast, he lashed out at the president during his opening monologue, when he remarked that ‘the only thing [Trump’s] mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c*** holster.’

The broadcast sparked thousands of complaints to the FCC, which launched a review. The agency eventually declined to take any action against Colbert.

Maine demorat representative calls Trump supporters racist and dumbasses and bonus – he threatened Trump

scott hamann facebook rant

This rant comes from Scott Hamann, a Democratic member of the Maine House of Representatives, representing District 31. He was first elected to the chamber in 2012.

On Facebook he went off on Trump and his supporters. Of course, he’s apologized so his party will forgive him. I doubt the Secret Service will be so quick to forgive his “sarcasm.”

From WMTW: Rep. Scott Hamann, (D) South Portland, is apologizing for an obscene Facebook post criticizing President Trump and his supporters.

“I regret my impulsive decision to post something aggressively sarcastic and inappropriate in a Facebook exchange with a childhood friend. While the tone of the post was born out of frustration with the vile language currently surrounding politics, I should not have responded with the same language,” Hamann wrote in a statement.

Hamann wrote, “Trump is a half-term President, at most, especially if I ever get within 10 feet of that p**sy.” The post also criticized the president for his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G 20 Summit and the Access Hollywood tape where President Trump made the comment about grabbing women by their genitalia.

Maine GOP Chair Demi Kouzounas was quick to respond to the post.

“Words cannot even begin to describe the level of revulsion I feel after reading Representative Scott Hamann’s recent tirade that has come to light. Perhaps the most alarming aspect of this tirade is an implied death threat against our President,” Kouzounas wrote. He went on to call the comments, “unhinged and dangerous.” He’s calling on Maine Speaker of the House Sarah Gideon (D-Freeport) to take action.

Hamann’s apology made no reference to the comment about President Trump being a half-term president.

CBS Tells FCC That Stephen Colbert’s Trump Jokes Weren’t Indecent Nor Obscene

stephen colbertAccording to CBS “cock holster” isn’t indecent or obscene. That’s demorats for ‘ya.

From Hollywood Reporter: Apparently, the FCC’s decision not to fine CBS for crude jokes made by The Late Show’s Stephen Colbert isn’t the final word on the subject. In a comment to the agency posted on Tuesday, CBS stood behind Colbert’s joke-filled rant that included a remark about how the only thing President Donald Trump’s mouth is good for “is being Vladimir Putin’s cock holster.”

“The Late Show, like all CBS news and entertainment programming, is entitled to the full force of the law’s safeguards for protected speech,” stated the network’s comment. “The broadcast in question was not indecent, let alone obscene.”

FCC chairman Ajit Pai got way too much attention for telling a radio interviewer earlier this month that the agency would be following “standard operating procedures” by reviewing indecency complaints. Unsurprisingly, given that the hours between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. are considered to be a “safe harbor” zone for broadcasters, the FCC later concluded there was “nothing actionable.”

So why is it now coming up? The FCC is reviewing the transfers of licenses in a merger between CBS Radio and Entercom.

One of the objectors is Ed Stolz, the head of Royce International Broadcasting, which owns some radio stations in California. He has filed a petition to deny, but after the controversial Late Show episode aired — which led to a #FireColbert backlash on social media — Stolz requested the opportunity to submit new information based on what Colbert said.

Specifically, Stolz pointed to a footnote in a 1986 FCC policy briefing that stated, “The Commission acknowledges that there may be circumstances in which an applicant has engaged in nonbroadcast misconduct so egregious as to shock the conscience and evoke almost universal disapprobation. Such misconduct might, of its own nature, constitute prima facie evidence that the applicant lacks the traits of reliability and/or truthfulness necessary to be a licensee, and might be a matter of Commission concern even prior to adjudication by another body.”

In other words, an obscure character test that in theory, at least, would permit the FCC to go after fake media. For many reasons, including the shrinking agency highlighted here, that probably won’t occur, but nevertheless, CBS saw fit to respond to Stolz.

The broadcaster makes another point beyond safe harbors. “CBS bleeped and obscured Colbert’s mouth at the point where Stolz alleges that Colbert uttered an obscenity so that a viewer could not hear or even lip-read what he said,” writes CBS’ lawyer. “Thus, the allegedly obscene expression was never broadcast.”

The comment then refers to the FCC’s announcement that the broadcast wasn’t actionable. One of the footnoted citations in CBS’ comment is the Parents Television Council.

“It was crude. It was indecent,” stated the PTC. “But it was protected speech. The FCC’s decision not to sanction CBS for Stephen Colbert’s May 1st monologue on The Late Show was the proper outcome…”

Hillary takes responsibility for her 2016 election loss BUT…

enhanced-video-of-hillary-clintons-9-11-collapse

The most qualified womyn…

You knew it wasn’t all her fault.

From MSN: Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that she’s taking responsibility for her 2016 election loss but believes misogyny, Russian interference and questionable decisions by the FBI also influenced the outcome.

The former Democratic presidential nominee offered extensive comments about the election during the Women for Women International’s annual luncheon in New York. Clinton said she’s been going through the “painful” process of reliving the 2016 contest while writing a book.

“It wasn’t a perfect campaign. There is no such thing,” Clinton said in a question-and-answer-session with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour. “But I was on the way to winning until a combination of (FBI Director) Jim Comey’s letter on Oct. 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but got scared off.”

She reminded the enthusiastic audience packed with women that she ultimately earned 3 million more votes than President Donald Trump. “If the election were on Oct. 27, I would be your president,” Clinton said.

She also highlighted Russia’s role in hacking into her campaign’s internal emails and subsequently coordinating their release on WikiLeaks. U.S. intelligence agencies are investigating whether Russia coordinated with Trump associates to influence the election. “He (Russian President Vladimir Putin) certainly interfered in our election,” Clinton said. “And it’s clear he interfered to hurt me and help his opponent.”

Amanpour also asked Clinton whether she was a victim of misogyny. “Yes, I do think it played a role,” she said, adding that misogyny is “very much a part of the landscape politically, socially and economically.”

After two unsuccessful presidential campaigns, Clinton is not expected to run for public office again.

“I’m now back to being an active citizen,” she said.

Angela Merkel says Europe must take more refugees and Islam ‘isn’t source of terror’

merkel muslim

Earlier this month, Angela Merkel stated that Germany will offer cash handouts worth millions of pounds for migrants to leave Germany in an effort to silence criticism of her ‘open-door’ border policy. Now this? Proggies…they can never be consistent.

From Daily Star UK: The embattled leader says Europe has an obligation to take displaced people from Syria and Iraq. 

She also said Islam “is not the cause of terrorism” and that combatting extremism needs the cooperation of Muslim countries.

In a wide-ranging speech at a Munich security conference, the German chief also vowed to work closely with Vladimir Putin’s Russia in the fight with ISIS in the Middle East.

Mrs. Merkel has come under fire for taking in up to one million refugees amid security concerns and a string of migrant sex attacks across Germany.

After the Berlin lorry attack at a Christmas market in December, ex-UKIP leader Nigel Farage said events such as that will be “Merkel’s legacy”.

Mrs. Merkel had been a strong critic of Brexit, saying she had “deep regrets” about it. She will go to the polls in September against Social Democrat candidate Martin Schulz, the former European Parliament President.

On Putin, she said Europe’s ties with Russia remained challenging, but it was important to work with them in the fight against Islamist terrorism. She said: “The joint fight against Islamic terrorism is one area where we have the same interests and we can work together.”

Her comments about Islam and refugees follow her criticism of Donald Trump’s travel ban on people from seven Muslim-majority countries.

New US Vice-President Mike Pence was in the audience and reaffirmed the US’ commitment to NATO in a speech of his own.

Germany is under increasing pressure to increase military spending, would do “everything possible” meet a NATO target for spending two percent of economic output on defence by 2024, Merkel told the conference.

Only last week, a student was dragged into woods and raped by a migrant who spoke no English near the campus of Bochum University.

The majority of Americans believe Russian hacking of the presidential election did not change the result

blame-the-russians

Maybe that’s because there’s still no definitive proof that Russia was behind hacking the DNC emails, which exposed the democrats’ and state run media’s attempt to get Hillary elected. Better luck next time.

From Daily Mail: Most Americans think Donald Trump would have still won the election regardless of information leaks that came out of Russia’s alleged hacking, a poll reported.

In the study, 58 per cent thought the outcome of the U.S. presidential elections would have remained the same, despite the hacking of files from the Democratic National Convention.

Americans thought ‘regardless of the information released as a result of Russian hacking’ Trump would still have won the election, according to a poll conducted by CNN and ORC.

A minority of 40 per cent of people said the information leak was damaging enough to change voter’s minds. Wikileaks published thousands of emails and documents pertaining to Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC, in June 2016.

CIA officials concluded that Russia was involved and the leaks were intended to prevent Clinton from winning the presidency.  Even Trump admitted that he believed Putin and his government were behind the intelligence (since when are DNC emails considered “intelligence?”) scandal and said in a press conference that he ‘thought it was Russia’.

The senate announced last week that an intelligence panel was investigating Russia’s alleged hacking and the country’s ties with the political campaigns.

Despite the major security breach, most Americans think the U.S. should seek to improve relations with Russia, instead of taking actions against the foreign government, according to the study.

Of those polled, 56 per cent said it was ‘more important that the U.S. continue efforts to improve relations with Russia’ while 41 per cent said America should ‘take strong diplomatic and economic steps against Russia in response’.

Russia bans George Soros foundation as state security ‘threat’

Putin ain’t not fool. Wish we could do the same yet you know why that will never happen.

Soros puppet master

Reuters reports that Russia has banned two branches of George Soros’ “pro-democracy charities” saying it posed a threat to both state security and the Russian constitution.

Russia’s General Prosecutor’s Office said the two branches of Soros’ “charity” network – the Open Society Foundations and the Open Society Institute Assistance Foundation – would be placed on a “stop list” of foreign non-governmental organizations whose activities have been deemed “undesirable” by the Russian state.

putin

The reason why they are undesirable? “It was found that the activity of the Open Society Foundations and the Open Society Institute Assistance Foundation represents a threat to the foundations of the constitutional system of the Russian Federation and the security of the state.”

Earlier this year, Soros urged the West to step up aid to Ukraine, outlining steps toward a $50 billion financing package that he said should be viewed as a bulwark against an increasingly aggressive Russia.

The Open Society Foundations said it was “dismayed” by the Russian decision.  The group said in a statement, “Contrary to the Russian prosecutor’s allegations, the Open Society Foundations have, for more than a quarter-century, helped to strengthen the rule of law in Russia and protect the rights of all. In the past, our efforts have been welcomed by Russian officials and citizens, and we regret the changes that have led the government to reject our support to Russian civil society and ignore the aspirations of the Russian people.”

Soros reacted saying, “We are confident that this move is a temporary aberration; the aspirations of the Russian people for a better future cannot be suppressed and will ultimately succeed.”

Course Reuters had this spin to close their story: “Soros, 85, now funds a network of foundations that support human rights, freedom of expression and access to public health and education in 70 countries around the globe.”

Those who know better aren’t fooled by this spin.

How does Soros support “human rights”? Guess that’s why Soros spent $33 million bankrolling Ferguson demonstrators to create ‘echo chamber’ and drive national protests.

And Soros certainly does endorse “freedom of expression”, especially when it’s used against conservatives. See “George Soros Gave $10 Million to Group Slamming Conservative “Islamophobia.”
