Associated Press Turning Fascist Planning to Block Trump Ability to Reach Voters Directly?!!

Big tech test-marketing censorship of Trump

by Thomas Lifson  at  American Thinker:

.

It looks as though the nation’s largest news-gathering organization, the Associated Press, is test-marketing the public’s reaction to Big Tech actively suppressing President Trump’s ability to reach voters directly.  Given the shocking revelations of the Project Veritas recordings of Google executives and their memos, and Twitter’s banning of conservatives, it is not paranoid to worry about Big Tech trying to define Trump and conservatives as “hate speech”…”because that’s how Trump won,” and limiting his ability to be heard.


Photo credit: author.

The AP’s toe in the water, written by Barbara Ortutay, is datelined San Francisco and titled, “Politicians’ tweets could get slapped with warning labels.”  It begins:

Presidents and other world leaders and political figures who use Twitter to threaten or abuse others could find their tweets slapped with warning labels.

The new policy , announced by the company on Thursday, comes amid complaints from activists and others that President Donald Trump has gotten a free pass from Twitter to post hateful messages and attack his enemies in ways they say could lead to violence.

From now on, a tweet that Twitter deems to involve matters of public interest, but which violates the service’s rules, will be obscured by a warning explaining the violation.

We’re already in Orwell territory here, describing outright censorship (something that is “obscured” cannot be seen and is therefore “censored” despite AP’s avoidance of that ugly reality) as a “warning label.”

The entire article is biased, quoting the far-left smear group SPLC (“It’s a step in the right direction”), but this passage takes the cake for pure denial of reality:

The new stance could fuel additional Trumpian ire toward social media. The president routinely complains, without evidence, that social media sites are biased against him and other conservatives.

Our Gifted Donald in Orlando to Begin 2020 Campaign….God Bless Him!

PRESIDENT TRUMP LAUNCHES RE-ELECTION CAMPAIGN

by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

I suspect that President Trump is tired of seeing mediocrities and nonentities garnering publicity as they vie for the Democratic presidential nomination, and has decided to claim his outsized share of the spotlight. In any event, he has chosen to officially launch his 2020 presidential campaign tonight in Orlando. Of course Trump’s launch has drawn enthusiasm that dwarfs anything on the Democratic side:

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

Thousands of people are already lined up in Orlando, some two days before tomorrow nights big Rally. Large Screens and food trucks will be there for those that can’t get into the 25,000 capacity arena. It will be a very exciting evening! Make America Great Again!

As I write this, Trump’s rally is about to begin. You can watch it live here.

Trump’s re-election theme will be Promises Made, Promises Kept. A White House email this afternoon said:

As President Trump gets ready to take the stage in Orlando, Florida tonight to officially launch his 2020 re-election bid, his ‘Promises Made, Promises Kept’ record speaks for itself.

On the economy: Unemployment is at its lowest rate since 1969, almost 6 million jobs have been created, there have been 10 months of wage growth above 3%, and our GDP has seen sky-high growth.

On taxes: President Trump cut taxes for over 80% of middle-class families and has lowered taxes for small businesses and corporations, creating a better business climate for all.

On immigration: President Trump is showing real leadership on the border. Our immigration laws are finally being enforced, the border wall is being built, and President Trump has brought Mexico to the table to help stop the growing crisis at the border.

On the judiciary: President Trump has nominated nearly 150 conservative judges including two Supreme Court justices, Justice Neil Gorsuch and Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

The list of accomplishments goes on and on. To read more, see the latest from RNC Research below.

President Trump also let it be known today that he might decide to live-tweet the Democratic Party debates. The Wall Street Journal brings, perhaps, too much sobriety to this entertaining announcement:

President Trump’s political advisers wanted to keep the president off of Twitter during the Democratic debates next week, arguing that there was an advantage in letting potential challengers attack one another without distraction.

Now, there’s a new strategy.

The president, who has spent years embracing social media for his political advantage, is tentatively planning to live-tweet the debates on June 26-27, according to people familiar with the planning.

Mr. Trump, even from a remove, always promised to be the most important figure at the debate. Regardless of the specific debate questions, many Democratic voters will be listening for how each candidate plans to take down Mr. Trump.

Interacting in real time on Twitter would make Mr. Trump’s presence more tangible by directly inserting himself into the political conversation unfolding on stage.

Will this be fun, or what?! Time to wrap up, as Vice-President Pence has just announced President and Mrs. Trump. I’d suggest watching, as the campaign begins in earnest.

(Commentary from ghr… Watched, enjoyed, and inspired by our gifted American President who fake media insist is ten or more points behind ten or fifteen of the two dozen ditsies dancing in circles around Bernie’s Soviet Socialist destruction of the American Republic.

The leftist human female animal worships her feelings above all regardless of history and Truth.   She is NOT a human male, nor is she supposed to be.   She used to be valued as mother, sacred, God fearing in raising   her children in determining the future of the nation’s cultural proclivity.  Now days she is a worker, an employee, a money maker 40 hours a week.  She isn’t really a mother for some agency holds rule over her child during the weeks mother plays what fathers used to be, the breadwinner.

Today, she is programmed  at university to feel and therefore be  superior to the human male and would be if he weren’t so bully and nasty.  The he of the species is programmed to become more feminized in order to feel and be  leftier.

The President, and his followers still believe in families led by  two of the human species, a real loving, caring mother and a real loving and protecting father in a Nation seeking Truth to strengthen the species.

Today’s American Democrats are becoming Socialists…..where, as in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic, Truth was made to disappear.)

Dishonest Dem John Dean Stars for Jerrold Nader’s Fascists in the Once Honorable House of Representatives

HOUSE DEMOCRATS SINK TO A NEW LOW

by John Hinderaker  at  PowerLine:

Today the House Judiciary Committee heard testimony from John Dean, the former Nixon White House Counsel who went to jail for his role in Watergate. What John Dean knows about Russiagate is anyone’s guess. News reports indicate that he described “six striking parallels” between Watergate and the failed Trump/Russia investigation. For example, Nixon fired Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox, while Trump fired James Comey. Got that?

Here is a really striking parallel between Watergate and the Trump/Russia investigation: both Nixon and Trump were Republicans. One more: the Washington Post and the New York Times were out to get both Nixon and Trump. How striking can a parallel get?

House Democrats are making fools of themselves, but it isn’t clear whether they know it or not. Their main purpose seems to be to produce headlines in obliging newspapers (the Washington Post and the New York Times, for instance) where “President Trump” is in the same sentence as “impeachment” or, if they are quoting Nancy Pelosi, “locked up.” I doubt that there is a single voter left who will be influenced by such partisan heavy breathing.

Our Donald Winsome Throughout Brit Visit!!

GOODBYE TO ENGLAND

by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

President and Mrs. Trump have finished up a triumphant visit to the U.K. If Brits followed the visit on BBC, they saw news readers ridiculing the President with a replica of the “baby Trump” balloon floated by leftists on their set. No surprise there: fake news. But if you followed the Daily Mail and the Sun, the newspapers that most Brits actually read, the coverage was overwhelmingly positive. The Daily Mail headlined: “‘I hope you come to this country again soon’: What the Queen told Donald Trump at the end of his state visit as he bid fond farewell to Britain following moving ceremony to salute the heroes of D-Day.”

This is really transgressive. Is it true? I don’t know, but it is a good counterpoint to the usual leftist narrative. The only salient point is that Trump is being treated like a normal president, which the Left can’t abide:

Donald Trump has left Britain at the end of his whirlwind three-day state visit after the Queen told him: ‘I hope you come to this country again soon’.
***
As they posed for the final photograph at the D-Day 75 commemoration event in Portsmouth, the President told the Queen: ‘It was a great honour to be with you’ and Her Majesty replied: ‘I hope you come to this country again soon’.

The D-Day commemoration came off very well. Now the president is off to Ireland. As always, the Daily Mail has the best photos:

Four more years, indeed.

 

 

PIERS MORGAN: The real big baby is Sadiq 

PIERS MORGAN: The real big baby in London this week is Mayor Khan – a petty little pipsqueak who’d shamefully rather mock and humiliate the President of Britain’s greatest ally than honor the D-Day heroes of both our nations

This week, we commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the D-Day landings, the largest seaborne invasion in history.

It was the crucial turning point in the war with Adolf Hitler and the Nazis, one that began the liberation of German-occupied France and laid the foundations of the Allied victory on the Western Front.

The D-Day landings: There were at least 10,000 Allied casualties, with 4,414 confirmed dead

The D-Day landings: There were at least 10,000 Allied casualties, with 4,414 confirmed dead

It was also the moment that most perfectly exemplified and cemented the special relationship between Britain and America, the two nations that provided the vast majority of those who fought the ferocious battle on the beaches.

There were at least 10,000 Allied casualties, with 4,414 confirmed dead.

They, along with everyone who took part in D-Day, will be remembered in a special ceremony in Portsmouth on the south coast of England on Wednesday, attended by the Queen, President Trump and 300 veterans.

That is why Trump has come to Britain for a three-day state visit.

He’s not here as a private individual.

He’s here as the democratically elected President of the United States, still Britain’s greatest ally.

As such, he represents the 320 million citizens of the U.S. including many who have personal family connections to the D-Day landings and World War 2.

Trump is in the UK on a state visit where he and Flotus are being hosted by the Queen

Trump is in the UK on a state visit where he and Flotus are being hosted by the Queen

So how has Mayor of London, England’s capital city, responded to this trip?

The answer is with quite staggeringly offensive rudeness.

Sadiq Khan, who’s been Mayor for three years, launched a series of savage attacks on President Trump in the past 48 hours, both in print and on television, branding him a ‘fascist’, a ‘growing global threat’, and demanding Britain should not be ‘rolling out the red carpet’ for him because it was ‘un-British’, adding that he was ‘the antithesis of our values in London and as a country’ and his ‘divisive behavior flies in the face of the ideals America was founded upon – equality, liberty and religious freedom.’

Mayor Khan also authorized, again, the flying of a giant orange Trump baby blimp over the Houses of Parliament during the visit, specifically designed to mock and humiliate the President.

By doing all this, Khan knew exactly what he was doing, and that was to create a firestorm of hatred towards the American leader and to whip up bigger protests against him than might otherwise have occurred.

Sadiq Khan  who’s been Mayor for three years, launched a series of savage attacks on President Trump in the past 48 hours and also authorized the Trump baby blimp being flown

He’s been joined in this unedifying campaign of anti-American negativity by numerous other senior British politicians including Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable, Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow and even by some of the media who should know better, like SkyNews who unwisely used the blimp to promote their coverage of the visit.

The politicians have all raced to denounce the state visit, refuse to attend a banquet in the President’s honor, bar him from speaking to Parliament, and all but condemn Trump as the worst human being that’s ever existed.

Little wonder than that when President Trump arrived in the U.K. this morning and read all this, he responded in kind.

British politicians including Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn (center), Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable (left) and Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow (right), have also been scathing of Trump’s visit

‘Sadiq Khan,’ he tweeted, ‘who by all accounts has done a terrible job as Mayor of London has been foolishly ‘nasty’ to the visiting President of the United States, by far the most important ally of the United Kingdom. He is a stone cold loser who should focus on crime in London, not me. Khan reminds me very much of our dumb and incompetent Mayor of NYC, de Blasio, who has also done a terrible job, only half his height. In any event, I look forward to being a great friend to the United Kingdom and am looking very much forward to my visit. Landing now!’

Predictably, this prompted an immediate roar of faux outrage from all those who had failed to be remotely outraged by Mayor Khan’s initial attacks.

Khan himself, without any apparent self-awareness, accused Trump of ‘childish insults’.

Yes, the man who approved a giant baby blimp of the U.S. President to fly over Parliament is accusing his target of being childish!

Of course, Khan knew exactly how Trump would respond, which is why he has spent the past two days attacking, mocking and goading him.

‘I don’t think much of him’ Trump blasts Khan before UK visit

Little wonder than that when President Trump arrived in the U.K. this morning and read all the negative comments from Sadiq Khan and others, he responded in kind and compared Khan unflatteringly with New York City's Mayor Bill de Blasio (top right, with Sadiq Khan) in a series of tweets (above)

Little wonder than that when President Trump arrived in the U.K. this morning and read all the negative comments from Sadiq Khan and others, he responded in kind and compared Khan unflatteringly with New York City’s Mayor Bill de Blasio (top right, with Sadiq Khan) in a series of tweets (above)

The Mayor wants this trip to be all about him, the tough-guy left-wing London boss standing up to the evil leader of the free world, rather then the D-Day heroes.

Yet by doing so, Khan is guilty of the very divisiveness, inflammatory rhetoric and childishness that he purports to find so distasteful in the President.

And he most certainly doesn’t speak for all of Britain, as he claims to.

Ironically, what the likes of Khan, Bercow, Corbyn and Cable have done to President Trump is the very antithesis of the good manners and dignified politeness that used to be the bedrock of being British.

Instead, given what Trump is here to commemorate, it’s been rude, obnoxious, self-interested and disrespectful.

Now, I fully accept those are all things that could rightly be said about Trump himself from time to time.

But that doesn’t make it OK for us to behave the same way or to treat the leader of our greatest ally with such wanton disdain in such a momentous week.

There’s also a sickening hypocrisy underpinning their treatment of Trump, and not just because there were comparatively very limited protests – and no baby blimps – for previous state visits by leaders of Saudi Arabia, Russia and China.

(Is Trump really worse than Putin, Mohammad bin Salman or President Xi?)

Sadiq Khan, as a human rights lawyer in a previous career, once passionately defended notorious Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who has denounced white people as ‘devils’, described Jews as ‘bloodsuckers’ and called Hitler a ‘very great man’.

Khan led a legal bid for Farrakhan’s ban on coming to Britain (for his hateful behavior) to be lifted, and denied his client was either anti-Semitic or a preacher of ‘racial hatred or antagonism’.

Sadiq Khan says UK is wrong to “roll out the red carpet” for Trump
….

Sadiq Khan, as a human rights lawyer in a previous career, once passionately defended notorious Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who has denounced white people as ‘devils’, described Jews as ‘bloodsuckers’ and called Hitler a ‘very great man’.

So his concept of who is and isn’t acceptable to let into Britain seems a rather fluid one, depending on who’s signing the checks.

Khan has also, as Trump rightly said, been an abject failure as London Mayor (even worse than Bill de Blasio in New York!) presiding over a terrible surge in knife crime that has led to dozens of young people being murdered on the streets of the city.

So who the hell is this jumped-up pipsqueak to start barking out insults at the American President when he can’t even protect our kids from being stabbed to death?

As a Londoner, I’m utterly ashamed by the selfish, puerile, virtue-signalling antics of my Mayor.

He has diminished himself, his office, and his country, and I apologise to all Americans offended by this disgracefully antagonistic welcome to their President during such an important visit.

But I say this to them: most Britons greatly value the support of America during World War 2.

Without it, it is very doubtful we could have defeated Hitler.

President Trump is here to represent those who enabled us to win the battle on the beaches of Northern France.

In that capacity, he deserves our dignified respect, not our snobbish sneering and petty partisan sniping.

As for those champing at the bit to protest against Trump this week, with their abusive placards, mocking chants, and pathetic baby blimp, I simply say this: the only reason you can do so in this country is because of what happened 75 years ago on D-Day. The heroic British and American forces (with the help of other Allied forces too) that fought that day did so to protect your freedoms.

So whatever your view of Trump, this is surely the week to park the incessant anti-Trump hysteria for just a few days and instead honor those who died and risked their lives in Normandy?

Bottom line is this: do we want the lasting images from this historic occasion to be of a pathetic orange baby balloon flying over our Parliament, or of a U.S. President standing shoulder to shoulder with the Queen to pay tribute to the D-Day heroes?

If your answer is the balloon, then you’re a stone cold loser too.
