Limbaugh: CNN Has Become A Laughing Stock And Doesn’t Know It

El Rushbo may not be alt-right but he does understand a goodly number of political currents swirling around in America. On Wednesday he called out CNN as a laughingstock, after the network threatened to reveal personal information about the person who created the now infamous video of Trump body slamming CNN.

On Thursday, President Duda of Poland Tweeted out a “fake news” Tweet. On Friday, at the G20 meeting, President Putin of Russia mocked the press too.

Real Clear Politics

Rush Limbaugh talks CNN on the Thursday edition of his nationally-syndicated radio show:

RUSH LIMBAUGH: And so today Jim Acosta accused Trump of engaging in fake news. The definition of fake news at CNN is if Trump takes a question from a conservative reporter, a friendly reporter. That is fake news. Acosta actually tweeted, “Isn’t it a fake news conference to take a question from a reporter who is essentially an ally of the White House.”

Now, in order to understand what comes next, you have to understand who Acosta is. He’s like everybody else in Washington. These are pseudointellectuals. You must understand the way they see themselves. They see themselves as better, smarter, more important, more relevant, more necessary, just generally better people than all the rest of us. They have no humility whatsoever. They do not know what they don’t know.

They have no capability of humility. They have no ability to admit that there are things that they don’t know. As such they are ripe to be made fools of. And this Acosta guy is basically putting his own bag of manure in front of himself and stepping in it every day. Trump is just assisting a little bit, but he’s not even collecting the manure. CNN’s doing that. Trump may be furnishing the bag, but these people are putting it in front of themselves and then stepping in it.

So Acosta tweets, “Isn’t it a fake news conference to take a question from a reporter who is essentially an ally of the White House?” Donald Trump Jr. responds. “So by that logic, Little Jim, every news conference for the last eight years with Obama was fake news. You would know.” But it isn’t just Donald Trump Jr. Ari Fleischer: “Jim, do you care to guess how many questions I took from reporters who went on to join the Obama White House?” Ari Fleischer was Bush’s first press secretary.

Here’s Acosta saying these conservative reporters, you know, they’re Trump’s allies, they’re supporters of Trump, these conservative people. That means it’s fake news. And Ari Fleischer is pointing out, you know, Jim, how many of your buddies who are in the press corps during the Bush administration then went on to join the actual Obama administration?

The tweets, the memes, the gifs making fun of CNN with Trump savaging them, they’re getting too many to watch, too many to count. CNN has become a laughingstock and doesn’t know it. That’s what’s funny about it. They don’t know it. They’re aware of all of this, but because they have no humility and because they have no sense of their true place in the universe, they are incapable of actually having this register in terms of its reality.

So Trump’s press conference is in Poland — oh, by the way, let me tell you about this. There’s another thing about Poland. The Drive-By Media today, a couple different places, reported that Trump is so unpopular in Poland. This is a flat-out lie. I mean, this is just total flat-out fake news. They reported Trump as so unpopular in Poland that they had to bus in the few supporters in the country they could find that would cheer Trump.

That’s not at all what happened.

Trump is so popular the Polish government had to organize the numbers of people and they sponsored bus trips to facilitate traffic management and logistics and all that. There were so many people that wanted to see Trump that they found a way to bus them in and keep it somewhat organized.

Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein Releases Statement Warning Against Fake News

Haha. This is great stuff here.

CNN, famously called out as fake news by President Trump, posts a story denigrating Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s advice to the public to be very skeptical of fake news.

Rosenstein seems to flip flop back and forth between undermining President Trump and helping him.

This statement could have been written by Trump, it’s so Trump-like.

CNN

Washington (CNN)Late Thursday night, seemingly unprompted, deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein — he of the James Comey firing memo and the appointment of Bob Mueller as special counsel in the Russia investigation — put out a very odd statement on just how terrible anonymously-sourced stories are.

Here it is in its entirety:

“Americans should exercise caution before accepting as true any stories attributed to anonymous ‘officials,’ particularly when they do not identify the country – let alone the branch or agency of government – with which the alleged sources supposedly are affiliated. Americans should be skeptical about anonymous allegations. The Department of Justice has a long-standing policy to neither confirm or deny such allegations.”

Er, what?

This statement is 62 words long but it really could have been just two: “Fake news.”

Rosenstein, according to CNN’s Evan Perez, was not asked by the White House to release the statement. But it comes directly from President Trump’s playbook: An attempt to discredit any negative stories that rely on anonymous sourcing.

A quick word on that: Anonymous sourcing is not ideal. As a reporter, you always try to get people to attach their names to pieces of information or quotes they are providing you. But that isn’t always possible — particularly when you are dealing with negative information about the President of the United States, like, say, that he is under investigation for obstruction of justice. Anonymous sourcing is an imperfect tool but one that has helped expose all sorts of important stories over the decades.

Trump seemed to take a swipe at Rosenstein — anonymous leak statement notwithstanding — in a Friday morning tweet. “I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt,” Trump tweeted.

The Rosenstein statement isn’t just strange because it seemingly came out of nowhere. (My guess is what prompted it was back-to-back Washington Post stories on Wednesday and Thursday about the obstruction of justice investigation and the fact that Jared Kushner’s finances are now part of the special counsel investigation.)

The oddest part of it is when Rosenstein warns people to be skeptical of anonymous sources “particularly when they do not identify the country … with which these alleged sources supposedly are affiliated.”

Unless I am misunderstanding Rosenstein, what he is suggesting is that some of the stories that have been written of late using anonymous sources rely on officials from foreign countries who might have ulterior motives — like undermining Trump — when they decide to share information. I suppose that’s technically possible but seems very, very far-fetched to me. (Following Rosenstein’s statement, the Post noted “US officials” had told them about the investigation into Kushner’s finances.)

If Rosenstein suspects that sort of disinformation campaign from a foreign government, I think he should tell us more about it as soon as possible. As in, if a foreign government is actively leaking information about the Russia investigation to US reporters for the express purpose of disrupting Trump’s presidency, that’s a pretty big damn deal. Right?

The rest of his statement is the standard sort of stuff that comes out of the Trump White House regarding anonymous leaking. “Caution” is necessary. “Skeptical” is the right view Americans should take. And so on and so forth.

The message from Rosenstein — while oddly timed — is clear: A lot of the stuff you see on TV or read in the papers attributed to anonymous sources is wrong. And the leakers likely have nefarious motives — and might even be from foreign countries!

That Rosenstein put out a statement at all is weird. That it was this statement is even weirder.

Styx advises getting your news from alternative sources on the Internet. He also explains how fake news is damaging to society.

Thousands of swamp creatures have a motive to leak false info to damage Trump. The press has a motive to publish that false information. Rosenstein did good this time.

Drain the swamp, President Trump!

White Sean Hannity “pulled a gun” on BLACK Juan Williams and Libtard Heads are Exploding

A CNN Reporter named Dylan Byers has problems with men who behave like men traditionally behaved.

When news broke about a perfectly innocent demonstration of Fox News’ Sean Hannity’s gun safety lesson given to Fox’s Juan Williams, Byers took the opportunity to write a long smear job against Hannity.

CNN is probably jealous of Hannity’s ratings.

Instead of just the excerpt relating to the gun, here’s the whole slanderous, slanted piece. It’s a polemic against masculinity.

The left hates masculinity because masculine men are rarely leftists.

CNN

The Wall Street Journal columnist who called Hannity the “dumbest anchor” on Fox News is a “jackass,” according to Hannity. The forensic psychologist who suggested a blood vessel had popped inside Hannity’s brain is a “jackass.” Even the conservative MSNBC host who sometimes criticizes President Donald Trump is a “jackass.”
If you criticize Hannity, or the Trump administration, there is a fair chance he will call you a “jackass” on Twitter. The chances of being called a “jackass” by Hannity are significantly higher late at night. Of the 21 people Hannity called a “jackass” in the last year, nearly half were told off between 9 p.m and 2 a.m.

Hannity, Trump’s biggest backer on television, has said this is entertainment for him: “I am a counterpuncher,” he told one Twitter user who asked why he was so antagonistic. “I do not start fights but I finish them. This is pure entertainment for me. If people take cheap shots I hit back.”

10 Arrested at Pro-Trump Rally in People’s Republic of Berkeley

The headline, photo, and text of this story are posted exactly as seen at the source newspaper site.

The problem is that the reader is left with the impression that the violence was a simple fight between opposing sides, when it’s far more likely that masked antifa, dressed in black, attacked and injured peaceful Trump supporters.

Sacramento Bee

Berkeley police say 10 people were arrested after President Donald Trump supporters and counter-protesters clashed during a downtown Berkeley rally that turned violent and left seven people injured.

The police department says five people were arrested Saturday for battery, four for assault with a deadly weapon and one for resisting arrest.

It says officers confiscated a dagger, metal pipes, bats, pieces of lumber and bricks.

The department says the seven injured people were evaluated, but none needed nor wanted to go to a hospital.

All of the weapons confiscated are the kinds of weapons we’ve seen the antifa use in the past.

So why can’t the (((media))) be honest and tell the public the truth!

Piers Morgan: Media fueling ‘crazy hysteria’ against Trump

You Can’t Cuck the Tuck: Jew Reporter Goes Mental When Tuck Asks Him to Substantiate Claims

This Twitter video is short but has poor sound quality. The long youtube video of the confrontation is embedded at the end of this post. It reveals the whole confrontation, showing how a clever reporter tries to escape from Tucker’s jaws of death.

Tucker Carlson has become a huge hit for Fox News and a highly looked forward to show on Fox weeknights. Along with Judge Janine, Tucker nightly destroys the liberal narrative. Both Tuck and the Judge have become cultural icons over the last few months.

The Hill

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson and Newsweek senior writer Kurt Eichenwald faced off in a heated on-air battle over reporting and President-elect Donald Trump late Thursday.

“In the last year, I’ve noticed – I think it’s fair to say – an increasingly partisan turn from you,” Carlson said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” when prefacing his first question to Eichenwald. “Do you believe you’re practicing journalism?”

“When did you stop beating your wife?” Eichenwald retorted after heartily laughing at Carlson. “What are you talking about?”

Haha. I’ve noticed that Jews like to respond to legit questions with questions not so legit. My favorite, which I’ve used against unreasonable women, is “What’s wrong with you?” I picked that one up from Howard Stern. It worked for me.

Carlson then cited some of Eichenwald’s past tweets about Trump, including one calling the now-president-elect “stupid and lazy.”

The segment quickly morphed into both men arguing over Eichenwald’s past claims about Trump’s health and frequent tweets.

“You have a real habit of taking things out of context,” Eichenwald told Carlson during their war of words.

“My only point is that you ought to label yourself what you are, which is an advocate,” the Fox host retorted.

Eichenwald ultimately unveiled a white binder labeled “Tucker Carlson falsehoods,” which he threatened to read on-air if the television personality would not let him speak.

“This is very tiresome,” Carlson said after more bickering. “I can’t imagine negotiating with you. I would go crazy.”

“How can Fox News employ you?” Eichenwald asked after threatening to read from his binder again. “Do you really want to do this? Do you really want to play this game?”

The interview eventually ended without a resolution.

“This is performance art,” Carlson said. “I’ve never had an interview like this in my life. Nobody’s getting anything out of this.

“I’m starting to have concerns about you, Kurt,” he added before cutting off Eichenwald. “What I’m saying is I am concerned about your behavior on this show tonight.”

This youtube video captures the whole confrontation. To me it’s worth watching to observe how clever liberals try to weasel out of taking responsibility for their toxic stew of smears.

Knifeman Stabs and Burns Five Adults, One Child on Swiss Train

swiss train attack

The only information the police will release about today’s Swiss train attacker is that he is Swiss.

That dearth of information has led to much speculation about a Muslim being responsible. So let’s be rational. The terrorist in this case IS A MUSLIM UNTIL PROVEN OTHERWISE.

Excerpt from mirror.co.uk

Swiss train passengers – including a six-year-old child – have been attacked by a man with ‘fire and a knife’ sparking fears of a new terror attack.

According to early reports, a man boarded the train, started a fire and then began stabbing passengers.

At least seven people, including the attacker, were left injured – suffering from burns and knife wounds after the 27-year-old man launched the assault.

A six year-old child is reported to be among those attacked by the man, who police revealed is a Swiss citizen with a ‘typical Swiss name’.

Swiss site watson.ch, claimed the suspect was ‘on fire’ when police tackled him and suffered serious burns.

“Can anyone confirm?” is the translation:
