Piers Morgan Review of CNN Greediness

Trump’s media enemies know that bashing him makes them big money but CNN’s greediness and desperation to get him has cost them dear

” ‘CNN, the most trusted name in news,’ bellows James Earl Jones morning, noon and night during the network’s 24/7 programming.

Well, not today it isn’t.

In arguably the most humiliating moment in its history, CNN just accepted resignations from three of its top journalists over a story they got horrendously wrong about President Trump and Russia.

It couldn’t have come at a worse time for CNN, or involved a worse kind of story.

Its war with Trump has escalated on an almost daily basis since he won the presidency.

He furiously brands CNN ‘Fake News’.

CNN, in turn, mocks and berates him at every turn and devotes huge resources toward trying to expose him.

It’s a toxic, abusive relationship that’s got so vicious and vengeful it threatens to imperil the very cornerstone of democracy, freedom of speech.

Now, CNN’s high moral ground has crumbled beneath it in spectacular style.

And it’s collapsed because all those involved forgot the golden rule of journalism: if it seems too good to be true, it probably IS too good to be true.

Last Thursday, CNN.com blasted out a new ‘bombshell’ exclusive about Trump and Russia.

It was the latest in a relentless barrage of similar Russia-related scoops by award-hungry mainstream media organisations desperately trying to prove Trump and/or his campaign team colluded with Russians, possibly as high up as Vladimir Putin, to fix the 2016 US Election.

Yet to date, there remains not a shred of hard evidence to nail the swirling maelstrom of rumours and scurrilous headlines.

Hence, no doubt, CNN’s wild over-excitement at finally getting a lead on what seemed like a possible game-changing piece of information.

It reported the Senate Intelligence Committee was investigating a potentially highly compromising link between Anthony Scaramucci, a prominent ally of Trump, and a $10 billion Russian investment fund…….” Please continue reading:

Democrats – FBI Collaborated on Trump Smear

DEMOCRATS, FBI COLLABORATED ON TRUMP SMEAR

by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

“The New York Post has an explosive report on the infamous “dossier” that tried to smear Donald Trump in order to swing the presidential election to Hillary Clinton. The source of the dossier is a Democratic Party opposition research firm called Fusion GPS:

The Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month threatened to subpoena the firm, Fusion GPS, after it refused to answer questions and provide records to the panel identifying who financed the error-ridden dossier, which was circulated during the election and has sparked much of the Russia scandal now engulfing the White House.
***
Fusion GPS was on the payroll of an unidentified Democratic ally of Clinton when it hired a long-retired British spy to dig up dirt on Trump. In 2012, Democrats hired Fusion GPS to uncover dirt on GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. And in 2015, Democrat ally Planned Parenthood retained Fusion GPS to investigate pro-life activists protesting the abortion group.

No surprise there. What is shocking is the FBI’s apparent involvement in the effort to smear Trump with false rumors:

The FBI received a copy of the Democrat-funded dossier in August, during the heat of the campaign, and is said to have contracted in October to pay Steele $50,000 to help corroborate the dirt on Trump — a relationship that “raises substantial questions about the independence” of the bureau in investigating Trump, warned Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa.

It raises more questions than that. Why was the FBI meddling in a U.S. presidential election? Partisan interference in the election by public agencies like the FBI and major news sources like NBC are far more worrisome than anything Russians allegedly might do from afar.

The FBI, too, is trying to stiff Congress’s investigation into the fake dossier:

Senate investigators are demanding to see records of communications between Fusion GPS and the FBI and the Justice Department, including any contacts with former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, now under congressional investigation for possibly obstructing the Hillary Clinton email probe, and deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe, who is under investigation by the Senate and the Justice inspector general for failing to recuse himself despite financial and political connections to the Clinton campaign through his Democrat activist wife. Senate investigators have singled out McCabe as the FBI official who negotiated with Steele.

Like Fusion GPS, the FBI has failed to cooperate with congressional investigators seeking documents.

It appears that the Democratic Party has successfully corrupted the FBI as well as the CIA.”

Bernie Sanders’ Wife in Trouble for Ten Million Dollar Bank Fraud

Chuck Todd on MTP does not ask Bernie Sanders about FBI investigation of wife for $10 mill bank fraud

By Thomas Lifson at American Thinker:

“Chuck Todd occupies a singular position in broadcast journalism: host of the oldest program in the history of American television. Yesterday, he did something that must have Tim Russert, Lawrence Spivak and Martha Rountree spinning in their graves. He hosted Bernie Sanders, arguably the leader of the American electoral left, and did not ask him about the FBI investigation of his wife for a suspected $10 million bank fraud, nor about reports that he and his wife are lawyering up.

Feminism’s Biggest Communist Donkey Tale……Human Males and Females Are Equal, i.e…the same!

Yes, it is true, that in our “United” states of America, its Democrat fascist Left insists, indoctrinates, preaches and teaches at college,  that  all human animals are equal…PERIOD….and therefore, should be MADE equal!  Some in this grouping are “praying”, no conniving,  for open sex forever with whomever, to prove this political, religious, social, animal ‘right’.

The ‘samer’ everyone is, the easier it is for fascists of all sexes, races, shapes and sizes to govern and make the human male do as HE is told…..VOTE FASCIST-SOCIALIST FOR ETERNAL EQUALITY!

I am a white approaching my 83rd birthday as a white….a male one, a child of the second world war, who came  to stand six feet tall and officially served his country in the army but never quite had the opportunity to do so heroically.

Contrary to our America’s  contemporary university  leftist religion, my father was decidedly male, my Mother decidedly  female…..he 5’10 in domestic stature; she 5’3.  He smoked in public….She smoked only occasionally, and  in bathroom when needed to  correct a certain  aroma.   He was a pharmacist, owning a small corner drug store in St. Paul, Minnesota.    She was born to be beautiful, charming,  athletic, sharp, ambitious, hysterical only when needed, and loved by all……totally female, not diseased or trained by fascist feminism.

They  met in the early 1920s in  downtown St. Paul when ballroom dancing competition was a rage.   Both were gifted athletically.   He was born and raised on a farm in Hope, North Dakota…..land  his own Dad, born before the Civil War began, and raised in coastal  Cherryfield, Maine,  had ‘homesteaded’ around 1873.  He was the third or fourth male child in a wealthy family where primogeniture was still  practiced, and so, left Maine alone  on horseback  to go West, homesteading  an acre somewhere near the Sheyenne River fifty miles  west of Fargo, North Dakota.

Somewhere in my house I own a post card, dated 1874, a photo of this 17 year old lone traveler going West, my grandfather, sent from Chillicothe, Ohio,  to his ‘family’ back in Cherryfield with  note….”Mother, I’m fine….Frank.”

My parents were adults.  Our neighbors were all adults.  Women were adult women, men were men as adults.  They made me adult.   My in-laws made my wife of 34 years, a Democrat woman,  a  female and adult.  My neighbors in St. Paul, Minnesota where I was raised, were adults.   NO ONE WAS ON WELFARE!  They went to “Church” instead.

American females no longer speak ‘adult’.   Nearly all of the girls and women of my first forty years  spoke elegant female “Joan Crawford” or “Betty Davis”….a movie and radio influence, no doubt.   When outdoors in those days  they dressed elegantly  as well.   Movies were censored to uplift the human soul….assuming from their JudeoChristian teachings, we humans possess  souls to counteract the animal in us.

Fox News pretends to be conservative…and, unlike majority  leftist  lines of aural communication,  such elegance does occasionally occur.  For ratings it prefers to show off female legs than cultivate female verbal and nasal excellence of  Betty Davis years.

Among leftists who today  control nearly all  of America’s means of  communication ,  whiners, such as those in the photo above are encouraged to demonstrate woe and sufferings, programmed leftists of all groups and sexes to show ‘feelings’.    They  have learned in school to be made jealous, powerful,  angry, to feel abused by males of today and ‘his’ history, and yet show ‘hurt’ when needed, remain childlike both  male or female, to weep or curse, whatever is politically needed.

National Communism, the cancerous leftist religion  of forced equality, has threatened  our America primarily through its Democrat Party, its leftist schools and universities, its newspapers, television news units, its entertainment industry, its open borders, its  criminals, its religion called atheism.   It teaches, pretends there is no difference whatsoever between the human he and the human she…or else!

I still  work outdoors….as a teacher, explorer, a planter, an artist, a landscaper, a JudeoChristian American and struggling businessman.   I ‘build’ beautiful grounds, something very foreign to forced equality socialist Americans these days….especially among the nation’s Democrat  Jewish clans who consider outdoor labors beneath the character of real people.

Adulthood doesn’t seem to enter the leftist American university ‘mind’ these days.  It is world for children such as the well dressed  weepers shown above  at  Ossoff  headquarters the night this leftist “he” fell short of representing in Congress a district in which he did not live.

Truth never matters among feminists….in fact, it’s such a pest, Obamaling Democrats from coast to coast are trying to ban it.  Children are so much easier to control than adults….

Why is it the human female animal almost automatically  turns to scream when faced with sudden shocking noises suggesting danger?

It is the tribal animal in her, countless hundreds of thousands of years in her genetic material.  She  is announcing to a tribal  human male or the tribe members  somewhere nearby,  she is in trouble and needs help.   Conservative women, usually JudeoChristian ones at that, do understand the basic differences between human female and human male animals.

Feminists do not, for feminism is a religion based upon politics and emotion.

And the  typical  animal response from a husband or adult son, or perhaps any ‘normal’ Godfearing male would be what if his space has been invaded by some strange growl followed by  female screams?

In my life time, it used to be the  automatic animal  shout, “SHUT UP” to the screamer…..the human  male animal instinct to discover the degree of  danger, to  himself and/or his clan,  the degree of  danger he or they face to fight or flee for survival.

I have in my lifetime attended dozens of Democratic election night political rallies until November, 1980, and Republican ones ever since, some won, some losers.  I never saw a weeping eye in any of these crowds.  Adult Americans wouldn’t act so childish.

On November 8, 2016 at  Hillary Clinton political headquarter, weepers began their crying roughly when Ohio went Republican.   They crying increased nearly all night long when human male Donald J. Trump was edging closer and closer to become America’s 45th President.

Fascists prefer children over adults.

The tell-tale picture above showing feminists in deep thought problem solving, is from an “opinion” article by New York Times comic, Maureen Dowd this past week.

 

 

 

WSJ: Anatomy of a Witch Hunt

Anatomy of a Witch Hunt

The Trump-Russia scare comes from the same playbook as fake cancer scares.

by Holman Jenkins   at the Wall Street Journal:

“Americans won’t be really good citizens until they read Timur Kuran and Cass Sunstein’s 1999 law review article about “availability cascades.”

Their launching point is the process by which we (i.e., human beings) decide to believe what others believe, and judge the truth of a proposition by how familiar it is. Such “availability cascades” drive government policy in good ways and bad, but usually bad. An example the authors analyze in detail is 1989’s fake “Alar” cancer scare that devastated U.S. apple growers.

Which brings us to today’s question: How did it become widely believed in the first half of 2017 that a U.S. president committed treason with Russia?

Consider what has passed for proof in the media. Tens of thousands of Americans have done business with Russia since the collapse of the Soviet Union, not to mention before.

In 2009 President Obama made the first of his two trips to Russia with a gaggle of U.S. business leaders in tow.

Of these many thousands, four were associated with the Trump campaign, and now became evidence of Trump collusion with Russia.

Every president for 75 years has sought improved relations with Russia. That’s what those endless summits were about. Mr. Trump, in his typically bombastic way, also promoted improved relations with Russia. Now this was evidence of collusion.

Russian diplomats live in the U.S. and rub shoulders with countless Americans. Such shoulder-rubbing, if Trump associates were involved, now is proof of crime.

The Alar pesticide scare only took off when activists whom Messrs. Kuran and Sunstein label “availability entrepreneurs” peddled deceptive claims to a credulous “60 Minutes.” We would probably not be having this Russia discussion today if not for the so-called Trump dossier alleging improbable, lurid connections between Donald Trump and the Kremlin.

It had no provenance that anyone was bound to respect or rely upon. Its alleged author, a retired British agent named Christopher Steele, supposedly had Russian intelligence sources, but why would Russian intelligence blow the cover of their blackmail agent Mr. Trump whom they presumably so carefully and expensively cultivated? They wouldn’t.

Yet recall the litany of Rep. Adam Schiff, who declared in a House Intelligence Committee hearing: “Is it possible that all of these events and reports are completely unrelated and nothing more than an entirely unhappy coincidence?”

His litany actually consisted of innocuous, incidental and routine Trump associations interspersed with claims from the Trump dossier to make the innocuous, incidental and routine seem nefarious.

Maybe Mr. Schiff is a cynic, or maybe Harvard Law sent him back into the world with the same skull full of mush with which he arrived. But ever since, every faulty or incomplete recollection of a meeting with a Russian has been promoted in the media as proof of treason by Trump associates.

The president’s obvious irritation with being called a traitor is proof that he is a traitor.

Whether the Russia incubus did more harm to Mr. Trump’s vote or Hillary’s vote during the election is impossible to know. But Mr. Trump won, so under the hindsight fallacy his victory is now proof that he conspired with Russia.

The term “availability bias” originated in the work of Amos Tversky and Daniel Kahneman, whose Nobel Prize-winning research gave birth to the field of behavioral economics.

Mr. Kahneman went on to write 2011’s indispensable “Thinking, Fast and Slow,” and I’m here to tell you that journalists especially pride themselves on their fast thinking—the kind that mistakes randomness for pattern, confuses correlation with causation, and gives excessive rein to emotional and cognitive biases.

Notice I don’t say reporters and editors are so dumb they can’t free themselves from such errors. I say that such errors are their stock in trade.

The original allegory of fast thinking, of course, is the old folklore tale, “the emperor’s new clothes.” In his 1922 book “Public Opinion,” Walter Lippmann explained how journalists reduce complex, novel realities to off-the-shelf “stereotypes.”

Or as a colleague once said of Stalin, “[He] tries to force life into a ready-made framework. The more life resists . . . the more forcefully he mangles and breaks it.”

Come to think of it, that’s not a bad way of describing how the D.C. anthill has reacted to the unexpected, exotic, high-risk, possibly providential experiment of the Trump presidency.

We mean every descriptor. His very unsuitability, the mood of the American public that elected him, the obscure impasse of American politics that brought him to power—all these signs deserve more respect than they’re getting.

His Torquemadas don’t and can’t know whether our democracy, in the improbable Mr. Trump, found a lever to move us forward, but there’s something repugnant in their desire not to find out.”

Comment:   The above Wall Street Journal article is a foreign language to about 99.3% of today’s American “adults” under the age of 50.  Truth, words, places, people, actions have become foreign to their modern  leftist equalized fascistic Democrat Party propaganda to force upon America the most important right….to be equally ignorant and powerless to what today’s “Democrats” are cooking up for the nation’s future.

Prager: What if a Trump supporter shot a Democrat Congressman?

If a Trump Supporter Had Shot a Democratic Congressman

by Dennis Prager  at realclearpolitics:

“What would have happened if a Trump supporter had shot a Democratic congressman and other Democratic Washington officials?

The answer is obvious.

The New York Times, the rest of the left-wing media and the Democratic Party would have made the shootings the dominant issue in American life. It is not possible to understand the left — and, therefore, the media and the current state of American life — without understanding how the left uses and relies on hysteria. Hysteria is to the left as oxygen is to biological life.

From the moment Donald Trump was elected president, America has been drowning in left-wing hysteria, all fomented by the media and the Democratic Party.

The charge of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign is hysteria. The claim that the president engaged in obstruction of justice is hysteria. As I have pointed out, the charge of Trump’s election unleashing hate and anti-Semitism, which dominated American media for months, was hysteria.

If Democrats had been shot by a Trump supporter, all you would be hearing and reading about is how much hate the Trump election has unleashed in America, how his election is threatening our democracy and how he is unleashing fascism.

But it was a not a Trump supporter who attempted to murder a Democratic congressman, Capitol Police officers, a House GOP aide and a lobbyist; it was a Trump-hating leftist who attempted to murder a Republican congressman and other Republican officials. And, for that reason, what would have been the dominant issue in America today is already a nonissue. The shooting took place on Wednesday. On Friday, the only article about it on The New York Times front page was about the “harmony” engulfing Democrats and Republicans in the wake of the shooting. By Saturday, there was nothing about the shooting on the front page.

The “harmony” issue is worth noting. As sure as the sun rises in the east, had a Trump-supporting fanatic shot Democratic officials, the Democrats would not have said a word about the need for “harmony,” or the need to lower the temperature in American political discourse. On the contrary, they would have greatly raised the temperature of their already blistering rhetoric. They would have attributed the shooting entirely to Trump’s “hateful” rhetoric having permeated conservative and Republican America.

But it was a leftist who attempted to slaughter Republicans, so it was Republicans who had to respond. And they did so by calling for harmony and lowering the temperature of political differences.

In other words, Republicans reacted with complete conciliation, whereas, the Democrats and their media would have gone ballistic against the right.

Now, why is that?………”  Please read on:

Hollywood, Manhattan Posh Fail to Buy Georgia 6th Congressional District!

IN A BAD DISTRICT FOR TRUMP, KAREN HANDEL PERSISTED

by Dan McLaughlin  at The National Review……(a piece of Republican paper not yet favorable to Our Donald)

“For nine months in 1916, the French and German armies battled with insane ferocity over a small patch of land in Northern France, committing over two million soldiers, spending the lives of over 300,000 men (and more than that wounded) and at the epicenter of the battle, pouring a millions of shells (literally over a ton of explosives) on an area covering about twelve square miles. The Battle of Verdun was about control of a modest piece of strategically useful territory, but it was really about a lot more: two national combatants testing their strength, resources, and resolve, stakes far more important than an individual town or ridge. Virtually every inch of land that was fought over was destroyed. The victors, the French, held nothing more than what they started the battle with, and their army was broken so badly it has not yet recovered a century later. The losers, the Germans, lost the war. The residents of Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District can be forgiven for feeling like the villagers of Verdun after a special election that pulverized the district with ad spending and activists. Patrick Ruffini estimated on Twitter this morning that the two parties combined to spend more money in this House race ($50 million) than Ronald Reagan spent on his 1984 presidential re-election (even adjusting Reagan’s $28 million campaign for inflation). At this writing, given the projected outcome, the net result looks very much like Verdun: a costly and depressing victory for the Republicans, bled white defending their own turf, and a debacle for Democrats, who came home empty-handed and must be able to win districts like GA-06 if they are to take control of the House in 2018 and carry out their chief policy goal of impeaching President Trump. GA-06 was always going to be a heavy lift for both sides. For Democrats, the obstacles were obvious: it’s a deeply conservative district, Newt Gingrich’s old district, that Mitt Romney won 61-38 in 2012, where then-Congressman Tom Price was regularly re-elected with ease. Their candidate, Jon Ossoff, is young and looks younger, had no real base of support in Georgia (the vast majority of his donors were out of state), and doesn’t even live in the district. His opponent, Karen Handel, was much better-known: she was first elected to office in the district fourteen years ago, previously won statewide office as Secretary of State, ran respectable races for Governor in 2010 and Senate in 2014, and won national notoriety in 2012 over her ultimately unsuccessful effort to separate a national cancer charity from Planned Parenthood. For Republicans, the race was difficult because this is probably the least Trump-friendly Republican district in the country, an upscale, educated suburban district full of transplants from around the country who work for big multinational corporations headquartered in Atlanta. Trump won it by just a point, running double digits behind Romney, and his approval ratings are well lower now than even his dismal favorability numbers on Election Day. Trump lost just four counties in the state in the 2016 presidential primary, but three of those four (Fulton, Cobb, and DeKalb) make up GA-06, all of which went for Marco Rubio. …..Please read on:
