Ex-Secret Service Agent Who Condemned Looters Branded as Racist

Dan Bongino tells Tucker Carlson that he’s been tagged as a racist for not making excuses for looters who … surprise … just happen to be of the colored race.

Dan gets a sympathetic hearing from Tucker.

Since liberals have excused every other type of crime committed by our darker cousins, why wouldn’t they excuse looting.

Fox News Insider

Former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino blasted critics who he said labeled him a racist for previously condemning looters in Florida.

“Apparently… discussing looting now makes you a racist,” he said.

Bongino, who lives in Florida, said those who are burglarizing stores during Hurricane Irma are “hack, phony frauds who have no lives.”

He said the political left makes excuses for looters during natural disasters because their livelihoods are “based off clickbait.”

Bongino said that, if people can market their side of an issue by declaring the other side racist, “some idiot is going to click on [their] article.”

He said that the left and some in the media speak as if they understand the looters because it is a way to blame capitalism for something.

Paraphrasing scholar Thomas Sowell, Bongino said sympathizers see it as “not the criminals fault – it’s society’s fault. If we were a little more socialist and Communist, or better planners, we wouldn’t have this problem.”

Tucker Carlson pointed out that the widely-circulated news camera video of looters in Fort Lauderdale was not an example of “mothers taking diapers,” but young men with new cars, clad in gold chains, who were stealing sneakers.

‘Sick:’ Trump slams report of ‘second meeting’ with Putin at G-20

If the choice is between accepting the word of CNN, The New York Times, and the Washington Post or accepting the word of Donald Trump, I’ll take Trump.

The lying (((leftist))) media has been caught with their pants down in a $2 whorehouse AGAIN. These people have no shame.

Fox News

President Trump lashed out at a report that he and Russian President Vladimir Putin had a second, previously undisclosed talk during the G-20 summit in Germany earlier this month.

The president said the dinner at which the encounter took place was known to members of the media who were covering the event.

In a follow-up tweet, Trump decried the media for, as he put it, “becoming more and more dishonest!”

“Even a dinner arranged for top 20 leaders in Germany is made to look sinister,” the president wrote.

A White House spokesman confirmed the conversation between the American and Russian leaders to Fox News earlier Tuesday.

An administration official said Trump and Putin “briefly” spoke during a dinner the night of the G-20 summit.

First lady Melania Trump was seated next to Putin, and the president approached Putin at the end of the night, the official said. They spoke through a Russian translator.

The administration official pushed back against the interaction being characterized as a “meeting.”

“There was no ‘second meeting’ between President Trump and President Putin, just a brief conversation at the end of a dinner,” the official said. “The insinuation that the White House has tried to ‘hide’ a second meeting is false, malicious and absurd.”

The official added: “It is not merely perfectly normal, it is part of a president’s duties, to interact with world leaders.”

Details about what transpired during the conversation were unclear.

Their first G-20 encounter, on July 7, lasted more than two hours. Trump later said he pressed the Russian president during that meeting about whether his government attempted to meddle in the 2016 presidential election.

Meanwhile, the White House on Tuesday night officially announced the president’s appointment of former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman to serve as ambassador to Russia. Huntsman is a former ambassador to China and Singapore who unsuccessfully ran for president as a Republican in 2012.

Donald Trump, Jr. Hires Mafia Lawyer Amid More Russia Connection Accusations

DONALD TRUMP, JR., WIFE VANESSA, AND FIVE CHILDREN. TYPICAL MAFIA FAMILY.

Obviously, Donald Trump, Jr. is Mafioso. He hired a Mafia lawyer, so he’s guilty. And by extension, they’re all guilty.

After President Trump’s brief respite from the usual ridiculous Russian stories while he was in Hamburg, Germany for the G20 meetings, the smear jobs have come roaring back, as predicted here.

This is all fake news, stories run by an unhinged media with a strong hatred of Donald Trump because of his lack of political correctness and because of their allegiance to the (((Deep State))).

Hiring a lawyer is exactly what you must do when you’re being framed. The lawyer’s past clients are irrelevant.

Buzzfeed

Donald Trump Jr., under scrutiny amid revelations that he met last year with a Russian lawyer, has hired a New York criminal defense attorney with a practice that’s included high-profile organized crime and cybercrime cases.

Alan Futerfas runs a small law firm in New York that focuses on white-collar investigations and prosecutions. Futerfas confirmed that he is representing Donald Trump Jr. to BuzzFeed News by email after Reuters reported the news.

ALAN FUTERFAS.

In hiring Futerfas, Donald Trump Jr. has followed his father in tapping an attorney outside the cadre of white-collar defense attorneys based in Washington, DC, who frequently represent people involved in political controversies. Earlier this year, President Trump hired Marc Kasowitz — a New York attorney with little white-collar defense experience — to represent him in connection with Department of Justice and congressional inquiries into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Unlike Kasowitz, however, Futerfas’s practice is steeped in high-profile white-collar matters, as well as the occasional political controversy. News archives show that Futerfas has long represented clients with alleged ties to organized crime, including alleged members of the Bonanno, Gambino, Genovese, and Colombo crime families. Last year, he represented the son of a New York pizzeria owner who was found guilty of drug-related charges in a case that stemmed from an investigation into drug trafficking by the Italian mafia.

Futerfas has also handled several cybercrime cases. His clients have included a Russian man who created computer malware and rented it out to criminals to rob banks, and an Israeli man who was one of several defendants charged in a massive hack of consumer data from JPMorgan Chase and other financial institutions.

The New York Times reported over the weekend that Donald Trump Jr. met last summer with Natalia Veselnitskaya, a Russian lawyer who had been working to change US policy, after he was promised damaging information about Hillary Clinton. Asked about the meeting by the Times, Donald Trump Jr. initially said that it was mostly about adoption policies — but when presented with new information, he said that the Russian lawyer claimed to have information connecting Russia to Clinton and the Democratic National Committee.

“Her statements were vague, ambiguous and made no sense. No details or supporting information was provided or even offered. It quickly became clear that she had no meaningful information,” Trump Jr. said in a statement.

Trump Blasted for Sexism For Telling Reporter She Has “Nice Smile”

Another day, another ridiculous smear job on President Trump.

This story is partly about Trump, but it’s also about all men. (((They))) desire to frighten us. Their goal is to destroy the ordinary, pleasant exchanges between men and women that make life a little more interesting and tolerable.

Sydney Morning Herald

US President Donald Trump was at his desk in the Oval Office and on the phone with the new prime minister of Ireland on Tuesday when a journalist for an Irish news organisation caught his eye.

“Well, we have a lot of your Irish press watching us,” Trump said to the prime minister, Leo Varadkar, as several reporters looked on.

Then, interrupting his conversation with Varadkar, Trump pointed at the journalist, Caitriona Perry, and gestured for her to come to him.

“And where are you from?” he said. “Go ahead. Come here, come here. Where are you from? We have all of this beautiful Irish press.”

After she introduced herself, Trump told Varadkar, “She has a nice smile on her face so I bet she treats you well.”

The exchange, which was captured on video and widely shared on social media, drew criticism about how Trump treats women and the message it sent about the attitude toward women as professionals in their fields.

Elisa Lees Muñoz, executive director of the International Women’s Media Foundation, said on Wednesday that she had heard about the episode in passing.

After a transcript of the exchange was read to her over the phone, she said: “Oh, Lord. I wish I could say this is a surprise.”

She said such occurrences were not limited to Trump, adding that female journalists are frequently called out for their appearance, their hair and the way they dress.

ELISA LEES MUNOZ. NEVER BEEN COMPLIMENTED?

Comments like the president’s detract from a woman’s value as a professional, she said.

“We absolutely do not see that happening with male reporters,” she said. “I don’t know what the solution to this is. It does need to be called out. It does need to stop.”

Kris Macomber, an assistant professor of sociology at Meredith College in Raleigh, North Carolina, said in an email that Trump’s comments reflect “textbook paternalistic sexism”, which is often couched in a “‘playful’ tone, as if she should feel flattered.”

NOBODY CARES WHAT SHE THINKS.

“Donald Trump’s track record for sexist remarks is well documented, and this particular case fits right in line with his previous remarks,” she wrote. “He didn’t say those things for Perry’s sake; rather he said those things to show all the people in the room (and the cameras) that he’s the kind of man who flirts with women he considers attractive.”

Most notably, a month before the election, a 2005 recording surfaced of Trump talking to television personality Billy Bush of Access Hollywood and speaking in extraordinarily vulgar terms about women.

In 2013, President Barack Obama apologised to Kamala Harris, who was then the attorney general of California and is now one of its senators, after telling a group of wealthy donors that she was “the best-looking attorney general in the country”. The comment drew accusations of sexism, which the White House at the time quickly sought to quiet.

Perry, the Washington correspondent for Raidió Teilifís Éireann, could not be reached to comment on Wednesday. On Twitter, she posted a video of the exchange and described it as a “bizarre moment”.

RTÉ had an article on its webpage under the entertainment category with the headline: “Trump call! RTÉ’s Caitriona has Presidential moment.”

Perry told RTÉ she expected to shoot footage from outside the window of the White House during the president’s call but that reporters were invited inside.

“One minute we were outside the window and the next minute I’m meeting the president of the United States,” she said. “When we went in he was already on the phone but I must have caught his eye and he called me over.”

The White House did not respond to an email requesting comment.

On Twitter, some users reacted with revulsion.

Deb Curry wrote: “Please, don’t judge us by this man. My husband would never treat you like this in a workplace. So inappropriate.”

Others defended the president and said he was complimenting Perry.

Twitter user Mike Boyd wrote: “Our generation calls what POTUS did a simple act of dignity and kindness. When kindness is mistaken for being bizarre, it’s a sad commentary.”

A man can decide to be a man and risk the consequences or he might as well become pajama boy.

Sarah Palin Sues New York Times Over Editorial Linking Her to Violence

The New York Times did not get its facts correct when it maligned Sarah Palin in a recent editorial. A later effort to set the record straight did not even mention her name, according to NBC.

The press (and the rest of us) are entitled to express our opinions about anyone, but we’re not allowed to make up “facts.” Palin will have to prove damages in order for a judge to set compensation if she does win the case. I can’t recall the details, but one case involving defamation saw the plaintiff win, but walk away with a dollar in damages. I’m pretty sure it involved the Rev. Jerry Falwell’s defamation suit against Hustler publisher Larry Flynt.

Unless the lawyers are taking Palin’s case on contingency (meaning they get 30 percent of any payout to her) then she’d better have deep pockets. This type of lawsuit is expensive to pursue.

Most of the time, these cases are settled before going to trial.

NBC News

Sarah Palin, the former governor of Alaska and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, sued The New York Times on Tuesday alleging that the newspaper defamed her in an editorial that appeared to link her to political violence after the shooting of House Republican Whip Steve Scalise earlier this month.

The Times said it would “vigorously” fight the action.

Scalise, R-Louisiana, and three other people were wounded on June 14 by a gunman who fired a volley of shots at Republican lawmakers practicing in Alexandria, Virginia, for the annual congressional baseball game.

In an institutional editorial titled “America’s Lethal Politics” — an unsigned piece intended to represent the opinion of the newspaper — the Times’ editorial board included rhetoric by a political action committee associated with Palin among examples of “how vicious American politics has become.”

Citing the 2011 shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Arizona, in Tucson, the editorial said: “Before the shooting, Sarah Palin’s political action committee circulated a map of targeted electoral districts that put Ms. Giffords and 19 other Democrats under stylized cross hairs.”

Palin strongly objected to the editorial in a Facebook post, calling it “sickening” and characterizing it as an attempt “to destroy innocent people with lies and more fake news.”

In fact, writings by the gunman in the 2011 case, Jared Loughner, made it clear that he’d been planning the attack for a long time before the Palin map was circulated. Moreover, the map didn’t depict Giffords and the other Democrats themselves in cross-hairs — only outlines of their congressional districts.

The Times soon corrected the editorial, saying there was no link between political rhetoric and the 2011 shooting, as well as clarifying its depiction of the map. The correction didn’t mention Palin by name.

In the lawsuit (PDF), filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, lawyers for Palin accused The Times of having published “a statement about her that it knew to be false” and of following up with a correction that didn’t sufficiently make up for “the falsehoods that the paper published.”

“The underlying premise of the Palin Article is that there is a ‘sickening’ pattern of politically incited violence against members of Congress and that this pattern stems from Mrs. Palin’s direct and clear incitement of Loughner’s 2011 shooting in Arizona,” the suit argues.

“But The Times fabricated this supposed ‘pattern’ and Mrs. Palin’s role in it, resurrecting a debunked connection between Mrs. Palin’s political activities and Loughner’s 2011 rampage in Arizona. By doing so, The Times implicitly attacked the conservative policies Mrs. Palin promotes and drove its digital advertising revenues at Mrs. Palin’s expense,” it says.

Breitbart is also covering this story, going into more depth about the evidence than NBC.

Drudge Dredges Up 2014 Story About Obama’s Secret Outreach to Russia to Help Embattled Trump

“NOT EXACTLY CHUMMY” READS THE CAPTION AT BLOOMBERG.

By now, you know the script. You could probably write some of fake news that the MSM writes.

Whenever President Donald Trump does what his predecessors have done during the normal course of business, just write a slanted article that demonizes the “orange cheeto.” Ever notice the liberal’s anti-white racism in drawing attention to Trump’s color? The MSM never gave Obama insulting nicknames related to black: black spade, black mack daddy, black cloud, etc.

(((Matt Drudge))) does what he can to balance out the unrelenting negative media coverage of Trump. The linked excerpt from Bloomberg is the big headline on Drudge tonight: JARED WHO?
INSIDE OBAMA’S SECRET OUTREACH TO RUSSIA

Bloomberg December 31, 2014

President Barack Obama’s administration has been working behind the scenes for months to forge a new working relationship with Russia, despite the fact that Russian President Vladimir Putin has shown little interest in repairing relations with Washington or halting his aggression in neighboring Ukraine.

This month, Obama’s National Security Council finished an extensive and comprehensive review of U.S policy toward Russia that included dozens of meetings and input from the State Department, Defense Department and several other agencies, according to three senior administration officials. At the end of the sometimes-contentious process, Obama made a decision to continue to look for ways to work with Russia on a host of bilateral and international issues while also offering Putin a way out of the stalemate over the crisis in Ukraine.

“I don’t think that anybody at this point is under the impression that a wholesale reset of our relationship is possible at this time, but we might as well test out what they are actually willing to do,” a senior administration official told me. “Our theory of this all along has been, let’s see what’s there. Regardless of the likelihood of success.”

You can read the rest of the article by clicking on the link.

The point is that the MSM proves over and over that it’s nothing but the propaganda arm of the Deep State. No one accused Obama or Hillary Clinton or John Kerry of being a Russian agent for Obama’s outreach. The mainstream press is made up of liars, garbage people.

Alt-news reporter Jack Pesobiac makes the point in his latest Tweet.

Left Calls for Beheading, Lynching of Berkeley College Republicans

ANN COULTER. SHE’S COMING TO BERKELEY COURTESY OF THE COLLEGE REPUBLICANS.

The Second (or third?) Battle of Berkeley will emerge on April 29 when conservative speaker and writer Ann Coulter appears on the University of California at Berkeley campus to deliver a talk.

The school’s Republican students have long been the target of abusive illegal threats from the left, abuse the media has been silent about. I guess reporters are too busy promoting antisemitic vandalism that usually turns out to be a hoax.

The young conservatives have been threatened with beheadings. Muslims?

Heat Street

The University of California at Berkeley’s College Republicans have received several death threats in recent weeks, with unidentified vandals posting stickers across campus calling for members of the group to be beheaded or lynched.

But the most recent round of sticker threats comes less than two months after students, protesting the College Republican’s speaking event for Milo Yiannopoulos, caused $100,000 in damage on campus.

A spokesman for the group told the student newspaper that the College Republicans have long received threats, dating back even before the November election.

A College Republicans spokeswoman also said that members had been “pepper sprayed, sucker-punched and verbally and physically assaulted for voicing their opinions and beliefs” on campus. And in March, members caught another student destroying one of the College Republicans’ signs, posting video of the vandalism to their Facebook page.

By deadline, neither UC Berkeley nor the university’s police department responded to Heat Street’s queries about how many individual reports they had received about threats or vandalism targeting the College Republicans.

This semester, the Berkeley College Republicans have hosted speeches for other controversial speakers, including Charles Murray and Heather Mac Donald. On April 27, the group will host Ann Coulter.

The student newspaper slammed the College Republicans’ choice of Coulter in a staff editorial published Friday.

“Bringing a controversial troll onto campus hoping to ‘bridge the divide’ among political ideologies seems like a familiar attempt to ‘create a dialogue’ — the same misguided rhetoric used by Berkeley College Republicans when they invited Milo Yiannopoulos to speak on campus in February. We all know how that ended,” the editorial board wrote, linking to an article about the violent protests.
