I wish I saved that graphic from yesterday for today. I watched CNN for a while this morning and saw their talking heads saying stuff like, “What those reich-wingers are claiming Susan Rice did wasn’t a crime, we really need to focus on Russia and Trump!” when they could be assed to cover it. They’re mostly talking about some healthcare shit and RUSSIA HACKING THE ELECTION YOU STUPID AMERICANS!!!!!!
Watching Howard Kurtz on Outnumbered, he’s such a media defender, why does Foxnews pretend he’s a watchdog? I know why the Wash Post and CNN did so, he was defending their lies, but Foxnews confuses me.
Here’s someone who cares more about explaining CNN’s perfidy than I.
Since news broke Monday that the Obama Administration’s National Security Adviser, Susan Rice, directed the “unmasking” of NSA intercepts of Trump associates, CNN has raced to shoot down the blockbuster report.
CNN Tonight’s Don Lemon went so far as to announce he would ignore the news at all costs.
While interviewing a Democratic congressman, CNN’s Chris Cuomo claimed it was “demonstrably untrue” Rice sought surveillance of the Trump team, even as that’s exactly what yesterday’s reports prove.
I just point and laugh and comment about their standard standard, but having people take that stupid shit seriously is probably a good idea.
To steal a bit: The NY Post, two papers in one!
First, nothing to see here!
Former President Barack Obama’s national security adviser tried on dozens of occasions to learn the identities of Trump transition officials whose conversations with foreign officials were “incidentally” collected by US intelligence
Nunes told reporters last month he briefed Trump on the documents because of concerns that Americans who were caught on routine surveillance were being “unmasked” for no reason.
The Obama administration shared the intelligence with officials throughout government because it feared the information would be covered up in a Trump White House.
Once the information was widely distributed, “intelligence officials” began leaking it and some of it appeared in media reports, including conversations fired National Security Adviser Mike Flynn had with the Russian ambassador to the United States.
Hmmm, seems she succeeded. Why the word “tried”? Remember, all journalists are trained in US universities to be lying sacks of journolist, it’s tough getting any that don’t suck the lefty narrative.
Editorial on same day (today, March,35th)
Do you suspect that the noise over Trump campaign contacts with the Russians is just a political hit arranged by Obama insiders before they left? You got fresh evidence of that Monday, with news that then-national security adviser Susan Rice was behind the “unmasking” of Trumpites in transcripts of calls with Russian officials.
Again, nothing on the public record so far shows that anyone on Team Trump said anything improper on those calls.
Maybe you should talk to your journolists about that there Mr. Editor.
Ever since Mike Cernovich dropped the bombshell (about Obama’s newly discovered felony)…everyone has been wondering who within the Trump White House or the intelligence community supplied him with such a massive scoop.
But, as it turns out, Cernovich didn’t need a ‘deep throat’ within the NSA or CIA for his blockbuster scoop, all he needed was some well-placed sources inside of a couple of America’s corrupt mainstream media outlets. As Cernovich explains below, his sources for the Susan Rice story were actually folks working at Bloomberg and the New York Times who revealed that both Eli Lake (Bloomberg) and Maggie Haberman (NYT) were sitting on the Susan Rice story in order to protect the Obama administration.
A bunch of our fine media betters knew about Monica Lewinsky blowing Clinton in the Oval Office but kept it quiet until Drudge posted the story.
As I saw somewhere today, the media has been in cover-up mode so much it’s going to be hard to pivot to a defense when they can no longer pretend it didn’t happen or it doesn’t matter that a POTUS used the gov’t against his political enemies.
No, not the IRS. No, not the DHS. No, not the Coast Guard. No, not the…listen, it’s the intelligence community. this one is about the intelligence community not his Chicago-Machine feloniosities using other federal agencies. Geez, stay focused.
More reports that CNN will have to ignore and explain why we need to to ignore it.
The National Security Council has uncovered computer logs that detail the instances former national security adviser Susan Rice requested and viewed records that included President Trump and his campaign staffers’ names in intelligence reports from July through January, according to a report published Monday.
Worst kept secret ever!
In the past month we have learned:
The Obama administration openly shared classified information with political appointees about Donald Trump in the summer of 2015, and likely earlier. The citation.
Obama’s attorney general sought warrants to spy on President Trump’s campaign team last June, and was denied last June by a federal judge. The citation.
Obama’s attorney general sought warrants to spy on a server at Trump Tower last October and was granted one by a federal judge. Ibid.
The Obama administration spied on President Trump’s transition team. The citation.
Well, some of us have learned that. There are many who knew all about it who are doing their best to hide it (see above).
Speaking of journolist, the story of the day is “O’Reilly sexual harassment symptom of Foxnews and Trump!”
Hi Glenn Harlan,
The recent sexual assault charges on FOX News star, Bill O’Reilly, is more reason to believe that the Trump era is leading to increased normalization of sexual assault against women. According to relationship expert, Wendy Strgar, “the culture of sexual violence not only remains rampant but is condoned at the top levels of our national leadership.”
I wonder if Wendy Strgar, relationship expert (she’s had thousands of them! Now she lives with her 12 cats while hoping to meet Mr Right!) has anything to say about a certain ex-POTUS who’s been credibly accused of rape while his wife
held them down….destroyed their lives.
Next, CNN shows they got the memo!
There are women at Fox News who want to speak up. But they’re afraid. They’ve seen other women stand up for themselves — against former Fox News chief Roger Ailes, against host Bill O’Reilly — and lose their jobs as a result. Meanwhile, they’ve seen those men defended and handsomely compensated by the company.
Puffhos got the memo.
The NY Times of course, they probably sent the memo. They are also pretty busy defending their God-President and his peeps.
This one is hilarious.
President Trump sought to turn attention away from the Russia investigation on Monday, saying that “the real story” was what he called a “crooked scheme against us” by President Barack Obama’s team to mine American intelligence reports for information about him during last year’s presidential campaign.
Don’t ever change.
I was going to avoid it, but I just can’t.
Not really all that important or new, but a good article on What If?
What if a Republican had presided over Benghazi instead of Ms. “At-this-point-What-Difference-Does-It-Make” Clinton?
What if a Republican administration had intervened to prevent Arizona from enforcing federal immigration laws?
What if a Republican had decided to enforce provisions of the Affordable Care Act selectively, omitting, for the time being, those that were politically inexpedient?
What if a Republican had made a deal with Iran that all-but guaranteed their acquisition of nuclear weapons within a few years?
What if a Republican administration had spied on a rival presidential candidate, who then, to the surprise of wise men everywhere, became the disfavored president-elect?
What if a Republican administration had illegally leaked, from classified intelligence reports, the names of private citizens to the media?
What if, what if, what if?
Anybody who says our fine media betters would handle it the same if Chimpy McBushitler had done this to Obama is a lying sack of ignoramus.
I’m done boycotting the Russia deal, let’s do some other news.
Jack Dunphy, nom-de-tubes of a CA cop, is writing about privatizing traffic enforcement and he’s agin it.
Mr. Pritchard recommends decriminalizing the traffic laws, thereby taking police officers out of the business of enforcing them.
I’m fer it, so long as they try it in California.
If you’ve seen Chisum or Young Guns, you’ve seen what happens when you privatize the police. Privatizing that will give us private companies who own politicians being above the law as they screw people over with impunity, watching CA implode over that shit would be funny.
ACLU is right but wrong.
Harold Jordan, a senior policy advocate for the ACLU of Pennsylvania, penned an op-ed for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Thursday, which was reposted on the ACLU’s main website Friday, that said cops stationed at Pittsburgh city schools should be forced to continue working without sidearms…
“Having officers patrol the hallways with firearms sends a negative message to students,” Jordan wrote. “It makes many students feel that they are being treated like suspects.”
I’ve worked in two charger schools that had cops in the hallways. In one, it was necessary on a daily basis, in the other I only saw them being called into a class once or twice in a couple months.
What people should be upset about isn’t the fact that armed cops are there but that armed police are needed in a fucking school to keep the students from attacking each other or the teachers. Also, I’d bet a lot of students don’t feel like suspects, I’d bet a lot they feel more protected.
In Akbar Britain cultural suicide news,
Easter Egg Hunt!
Theresa May has hit out at the National Trust for dropping “Easter” from its egg hunt, describing the decision as “absolutely ridiculous”.
It’s just so 21st century that something called, “National Trust” is selling out the nation’s values.
Yesterday I was wondering about the protests going on in Ecuador over their election, the lefty won and the righty’s supporters are claiming fraud.
At Babalu Blog, the place for all things Latin American Commie, they think it was fraud.
The people of Ecuador are refusing to ignore the flagrant fraud that took place during Sunday’s presidential election. For two straight nights they have taken to the streets to protest Ecuador’s wannabe dictator Rafael Correa’s brazen attempt to steal the election for his handpicked successor.
Lefties stealing elections is their M.O. so I wouldn’t be surprised. Look at what they tried to do here (see above).
Apparently, Black Lives Matter are demanding Mercedes now.
Let’s end on something that would be even funnier if it was accidental.
It’s very subtly funny if it’s on purpose, but if it’s on accident that just makes it a lot funnier.
