Why, CNN…, you look like somebody just walked over your grave.

Brian Flood of Fox News reports that, “CNN’s in-house media pundit Brian Stelter was confronted by a C-SPAN caller on Tuesday who told him the liberal network is ‘dividing our nation’ and called CNN the ‘enemy of the truth.’”

Boom!

Bam!

Bingo!

“Stelter joined C-SPAN’s ‘Washington Journal’ to answer questions from viewers when a caller from Minnesota accused CNN of committing over 300,000 ‘distortions of truth’ since President Donald Trump took office.”

Oh, c’mon, 300,000?

Really?

It’s got to be much more than that!

‘“You guys always talk about how many times Trump has lied, I’ve calculated and, I think with your chyrons [electronically generated captions superimposed on a TV screen]…, I don’t know if there are any journalists left at CNN but I know that, if I were to estimate, about 300 different distortions or misinformation that we get out of CNN,’ the caller said. ‘And you have to watch them in the airport, which is harsh, but if you added all that up to 46 months, it comes out to be 300,000-plus distortions of truth.’”

“@TimJGraham tweeted, ‘Oh @brianstelter did not have a pile of fans calling in to C-SPAN today. This man really brought the pain, saying ‘CNN is the enemy of truth.’ Stelter said yeah, Trump has ‘radicalized’ people with this talk of media bias. Laughably claims MSM is structured to keep bias out!’”

“The caller then evoked Nick Sandmann, who famously settled a multimillion-dollar defamation lawsuit with CNN.”

‘“You defamed a child,’” the caller said, adding that CNN is ‘dividing our nation’ with partisan coverage.”

‘“And I don’t believe in dividing our nation, it hurts our great nation, and, so CNN is really the enemy of the truth,’ the caller said. ‘That’s my opinion, thank you.’”

“Stelter, who seemed to be used to such feedback and has been labeled media’s ‘hall monitor’ by critics in the past, said he was grateful for the call.”

Okay…, well that was just another lie!

‘“I know you’re not the only person that feels this way,’ Stelter said.”

Now that may be the biggest understatement of the year!

‘“There has been a process of radicalization that’s happened in this country with media bashing that is absolutely unprecedented.’”

Yes, Brian Stelter, there has definitely been a “process of radicalization in this country,” but it has nothing to do “media bashing.”

And, yes, the media bashing has been “absolutely unprecedented,” and rightfully so!

“Stelter then said that many journalists live in big cities and have ‘liberal leanings,’ but newsrooms should ensure that ‘bias doesn’t seep into the news coverage.’”

Oh, come on, Brian…, what we’re talking about here is MUCH MORE than “liberal leanings” and “bias.” What we’re talking about here is a concerted and coordinated liberal propagandizing effort.

‘“Yet sometimes it [regarding bias seeping into the news] does,’ Stelter said. ‘I absolutely acknowledge that. I think it’s different to talk about things as if they are enemies.’”

‘“No American is an enemy of another American.’”

Lie!

‘“No news outlet is an enemy of America.’”

Another lie!

So, now they’re willing to acknowledge their biases in an effort to buy their unabashed liberal propaganda campaign some time…, in their minds.

The media was intended to be the watchdog of the government on behalf of the American people.

Well, the American people have been sold down the river…, and what are left with is the equivalent of a fox guarding the hen house.

A more appropriate metaphor might be a nest of rats guarding your children.

In any case…, the liberal propaganda, fake news media was deservedly called-out here, and they are as guilty as hell.

In my mind, what these “news” outlets are guilty of is the equivalent of treason against our country.

THE FAKE NEWS!

The mainstream media has been described and labeled many ways.

They’ve been called “Fake news.”

They’ve been described as having a liberal bias.

They’ve been called “liberal propaganda.”

And they’ve been described as the “communication arm of the Democrat National Committee.”

All with good reason.

acover 3

It wasn’t long ago that we were debating the existence of a “liberal bias” of those within the mainstream media.

Well, the debate is over.

The bias exists, and the mainstream media won’t even bother to deny it anymore.

In fact, we are way past “bias” at this point.

We are at a point where the mainstream media has chosen to abandon any sense of objectivity, and have become co-conspirators and operatives of the democrat establishment.

acover 2

Don’t believe me?

Brian Flood of Fox News reports that, “Evening newscasts are 150 times more negative toward Trump than Biden, study says.”

acover 5

‘“That’s not news reporting — that’s a negative advertising campaign in action,’ Rich Noyes [MRC research director] says.”

acover 10

“The evening newscasts on ABC, CBS and NBC have been 150 times more negative when covering President Trump compared to presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, according to a new study.”

And that’s only the major networks!

Can you imagine the negativity if CNN and MSNBC had been included?

acover 11

That number may well have been 250 times, 350 times, 500 times “more negative when covering President Trump compared to 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden!”

“The Media Research Center [MRC] analyzed all statements made by reporters, anchors and nonpartisan sources, such as experts or voters, made on CBS’ “Evening News,” “NBC Nightly News” and ABC’s “World News Tonight” from June 1 through July 31.”

“The findings showed that Biden has received eight positive evaluative statements with only four negative comments made about the former vice president in a two-month period. But when it comes to Trump, the study showed that coverage has been overwhelmingly negative.”

“CBS’ “Evening News,” “NBC Nightly News” and ABC’s “World News Tonight” made a whopping 634 negative evaluative statements about Trump over the same time period, according to the study. The evening newscasts made 34 positive statements about the president over the same time period.”

acover 13

“MRC research director Rich Noyes, who conducted the study, feels that ‘millions of viewers are witnessing the most biased presidential campaign coverage in modern media history.’”

acover 7

Without a doubt, although 2016 was nothing to sneeze at either!

acover 8

“Noyes noted that ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts focused 512 minutes of airtime on Trump over the two-month sample, which is nine times more than the 58 minutes spent on Biden.”

acover 9

‘“I’ve been studying the news media and elections for more than 35 years. Trust me — there’s never been anything like it,’ Noyes wrote. ‘Do the math, and viewers heard 150 TIMES more negative comments about Trump than Biden. That’s not news reporting — that’s a negative advertising campaign in action.’”

acover 4

acover 12

“{President] Trump regularly blasts the mainstream media for what he feels is unfair coverage and recently accused Biden of avoiding tough questions from reporters.”

‘“If you consider the evening newscasts a reliable gauge of the liberal media at large (cable news, big newspapers, etc.), it means Biden has enjoyed an army of so-called journalists conducting a massive negative information campaign against his opponent, while he is sheltered from any scrutiny,’ Noyes wrote.”

Again…, no doubt.

‘“Controversies from the spring, such as allegations from former staffer Tara Reade that he sexually assaulted her in the 1990s, completely disappeared from his evening news coverage in June and July,’ Noyes added.”

acover 14

acover 18

“As a result, Trump said on Monday that he ‘has no choice’ but to campaign during the Democratic National Convention because Biden gets preferential treatment from the media.”

acover 16

‘“We have a guy that doesn’t come out of his basement and the media covers [for him],’ Trump said on during a phone interview on ‘Fox & Friends.’”

acover 6

‘“When they ask me questions, I have these people, there is fire out of their eyes … they’re asking me questions and I see the fire is burning in their eyes,’ Trump said. ‘I look at some of them and say, boy, how can you have so much hatred?’”

“Trump then said Biden doesn’t have to deal with the same type of hostility from the press. In fact, the Democratic nominee doesn’t have to deal with the press at all.”

‘“He doesn’t take any questions from reporters,’ Trump said. ‘Here I am getting bombs thrown at me every day by people that are totally, you know, frankly dishonest reporters, they’re espousing the view of the radical left, but here I am, bombs every day … but this guy doesn’t come out of his basement.’”

acover 19

With all due respect, Mr. President, and I am saying “with all due respect,” Sleepy Joe did do a hard-hitting interview with rapper Cardi B (her real name being Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar) the other day!

I mean, let’s give credit where credit is due!

The New York Times is liberal? 

Yessiree, Bob!

The New York Times is as liberal as the day is long…, and then some.

But it’s not just that.

The real offense of The New York Times is that they’re intentionally deceitful, intentionally disingenuous, and intentionally propagandistic.

Those are their real “crimes.”

abari 4

Being just a “good old liberal” these days is now a position not to be tolerated by the radical left.

If you’re not a self-proclaimed, full-fledged. socialist/communist/fascist, you better stand back and stand down.

Oliver Darcy of CNN Business writes, “Controversial opinion writer Bari Weiss resigns from The New York Times, blasting paper for ‘illiberal environment.’”

abari 3

First of all, wouldn’t a “controversial” opinion writer be a good thing?

That is, unless they’re only tolerated as long as their opinion matches the opinion dictated by the New York Times.

“New York (CNN) Bari Weiss, a controversial opinion writer for The New York Times, resigned from the newspaper on Monday, blasting the institution on her way out in a scathing letter explaining why she chose to leave her job.”

abari 1

“In the resignation letter Weiss posted online Tuesday, the self-described ‘politically homeless’ writer criticized The Times for fostering what she called an ‘illiberal environment’ that she said was ‘especially heartbreaking.’”

FL: Bari Weiss in Conversation with Alana Newhouse during the Mi

‘“Twitter is not on the masthead of The New York Times,’ Weiss wrote. ‘But Twitter has become its ultimate editor.’”

The whole process was good for Bari, however, until the process swept over her, and swept by her, and is now proceeding to bite her in her own backside.

“Stories are chosen and told in a way to satisfy the narrowest of audiences, rather than to allow a curious public to read about the world and then draw their own conclusions,’ Weiss added.”

Bite your tongue, you heretical sea hag!

The last thing the radical left needs is people drawing their own conclusions!

“News of Weiss’ departure was first reported by ‘Vice’ and confirmed by The Times.  Kathleen Kingsbury, The Times’ acting editorial page editor, thanked Weiss in a statement for her ‘many contributions.’”

Her biggest and best contribution being her latest decision to get out of the way of their Marxist propaganda mission.

‘“I’m personally committed to ensuring that The Times continues to publish voices, experiences and viewpoints from across the political spectrum in the Opinion report,’ Kingsbury said.”

abari 6

Liar, liar, pants on fire!

abari 7

“Weiss generated controversy for her criticism of aspects of progressive culture, particularly with regards to free speech.”

We mustn’t have any of that!  Free speech, that is!

“Last week, she was one of the dozens of writers who signed an open letter published in Harper’s Magazine that spoke out against so-called cancel culture.”

How dare she!

“Weiss faced criticism in June when the newspaper faced backlash over the publication of Republican Sen. Tom Cotton’s op-ed, which argued for sending in military troops to U.S. cities to quash unrest that had broken out in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd.  In a series of tweets, Weiss tweeted that there was a ‘civil war’ that has been ‘raging’ inside The Times between the ‘wokes’ and older ‘liberals.’ The tweets drew public backlash from some of Weiss’ own colleagues.”

“Weiss said in her resignation letter that she was subject to ‘constant bullying’ by her colleagues at The Times who disagreed with her views. She wrote that colleagues have called her a Nazi and racist and that she was ‘demeaned on company-wide Slack channels.’”

abari 11

“Slack” software is a collaboration hub that can replace email to help you and your team work together seamlessly. It’s designed to support the way people naturally work together, so you can collaborate with people online as efficiently as you do face-to-face.  A “Slack” workspace is made up of channels, where team members can communicate and work together.

‘“There, some coworkers insisted I need to be rooted out if this company is to be a truly “inclusive” one, while others post ax emojis next to my name,’ Weiss wrote. ‘Still other New York Times employees publicly smear me as a liar and a bigot on Twitter with no fear that harassing me will be met with appropriate action.  They never are.’”

abari 10

Is it just me?

Doesn’t anyone else see the fascist nature of these people?

It can’t be just me, right?

You do see it too, don’t you?

“Eileen Murphy, a spokesperson for The Times, did not respond to the specifics of Weiss’ resignation letter.”

Of course not.

“But Murphy said, ‘We’re committed to fostering an environment of honest, searching and empathetic dialogue between colleagues, one where mutual respect is required of all.’”

Nice statement, Eileen.  Too bad it isn’t true.

abari 8

abari 5

Brian Flood of Fox News adds, ‘“What this journalist has done is not just to indict, but convict The New York Times of outright censorship,’ Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell told Fox News. ‘If it doesn’t send shockwaves through the world of journalism, it’s because the world of journalism no longer has ethics.”’

BINGO!

“Weiss published the resignation letter she sent to Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger on her personal website, saying, ‘Showing up for work as a centrist at an American newspaper should not require bravery.’”

And you not even a true centrist, Ms. Weiss. You may be a centrist, in a liberal sense, but not a true centrist.

A true “centrist,” these days, is defined as a person who isn’t smart enough to stand up for America, or just too lazy to help destroy her.

“DePauw University professor and media critic Jeffrey McCall told Fox News that Weiss’ letter ‘provides yet another window to the mindset of journalistic ideology and advocacy’ at The Times.”

“While some were shocked by Weiss’ scathing letter, Cornell Law School professor and media critic William A. Jacobson feels anyone paying attention to ‘the Gray Lady’ [The New York Times] should have known the paper has a lefty agenda.”

“The Gray Lady” has a pimp these days…, and she’s a hot mess.

‘“Liberalism at the NY Times is illiberal and intolerant.  Water also is wet. Bari Weiss confirms what conservatives already knew, but liberals like Weiss previously refused to see,’ Jacobson told Fox News. ‘The vicious social justice warfare culture has moved from campus to newsrooms, and there is no place for old-fashioned liberals like Weiss.’”

Hmmm.  Sucks to be an “old fashioned liberal” these days, I guess.

Just to put The Times’ liberalism into perspective, The New York Times has not endorsed a republican for president since 1956!

That’s not once in the last 64 years!

That’s not once in the last 16 presidential elections!

That last endorsement in 1956 was for the incumbent, then President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

That includes endorsing Walter Mondale over President Ronald Reagan in 1984.  An election that Ronald Reagan won with 58.8% of the popular vote, while winning 49 of the 50 states, the only holdout being Mondale’s home state of Minnesota, and the District of Columbia, of course.

OBAMAGATE! 

Regarding the reporting of Obamagate, Jonathan Tobin’s heart is in the right place, but his understanding has a long way to go to catch up.

Jonathan Tobin, wrote in The New York Post, “For reporting Obamagate straight, media knives are out for Catherine Herridge.”

aherridge 5

“Journalists are pack animals, he continues.”

I would say that’s being extremely kind.

Jackasses are considered pack animals, aren’t they?

aherridge 4

He continues, “That’s especially true in Washington. Despite the hunger for scoops, when it comes to the substance of stories, few have the guts to go against the ideological groupthink that prevails in our nation’s capital.”

Hunger for scoops?

Are you serious?

Their hunger for “scoops” exists only as long as these “scoops” pertain to negative news about President Trump, his administration, republicans in Congress, and republicans and conservatives in general.

And you think what we’re dealing with here is “groupthink,” huh?

I’m sorry, Mr. Tobin…, this isn’t groupthink, it’s called toeing the party line…, promoting the approved narrative…, pushing the desired propaganda, or performing propaganda by omission.

“That’s what makes CBS’ Catherine Herridge so exceptional,” Tobin goes on to say.

aherridge 2

So, a journalist doing what a journalist should be doing makes them exceptional these days?

I guess it does, actually.

“In an era when too many network journalists slant their reporting to serve establishment opinion, Herridge sticks to the facts. Her dogged determination to get to the bottom of stories has made her an invaluable source on the national-security beat.”

If I didn’t know any better, Mr. Tobin, I’d say you have a little thing for Catherine Herridge! Why else would you throw yourself to the liberal wolves to sing Catherine Herridge’s praises?

And, “when too many network journalists slant their reporting?”

Is that what your calling all of this conspiratorial, fraudulent “reporting,” Mr. Tobin…, being “slanted?”

“Her sterling quality and integrity have also put a target on her back. When it came to the ‘collusion hoax,’ she dared to let the truth guide her. Likewise, with her reporting into government misconduct in the prosecution of President Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn.”

“Most of her colleagues reveled in collusion falsehoods — and ignored FBI wrongdoing. She did the opposite.”

They did more than revel in the “collusion falsehoods,” they knowingly perpetuated these “falsehoods” (LIES) on the American people for well over two years!

TWO YEARS!

Day after day…, night after night.

“But there’s always a price to be paid for refusing to conform. If you expose documents that further discredit the already-exploded myth that Trump colluded with Russia, you are going to lose friends in Washington.”

So, exposing the truth will cause you to “lose friends” amongst the Washington media.

That alone is quite telling.

“If you show that there was a concerted attempt to spy on his campaign and to leak information designed to paralyze his administration, you aren’t going to be popular with journalists who were part of this effort.”

So, she’s not going to be popular with “journalists” who got the story entirely wrong…, knew they got the story entirely wrong…, earned “journalism” awards for their excellence in reporting a story that was entirely false, but pushed it anyway because their ultimate goal was to discredit President Trump and somehow remove him from office?

aherridge 7

Hopefully Catherine Herridge is okay with that.  I always liked her, and I also felt she was one of the few who had a degree of integrity left.

“So, it’s hardly surprising that Herridge — a star reporter at Fox News from 1996 until last year before moving to CBS — has been subjected to abuse by Joe Biden’s campaign mouthpiece and backstabbed by her colleagues in recent days.”

aherridge 1

Her big mistake was allowing herself to be lured to CBS, just like Megyn Kelly was lured to NBC.

You know the old saying, “Keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer?”

Megyn Kelly was eventually silenced at NBC, and I expect Catherine Herridge will be silenced as well at CBS in the not too distant future.

Eating their contracts is a small price to pay in the grand scheme of things.

And don’t be fooled…, THE LIBERAL NARRATIVE IS ONE, BIG, GRAND SCHEME.

More propaganda by omission!

Liberal propaganda, that is.

There were special elections Tuesday, May 12, for two open Congressional seats.  One in California and one in Wisconsin.

But, there was no mention of the results of these races on CNN or their website.

acnnelect 11

In their defense, it was a busy news day.

There were many stories that were much more important, like:

“A teenager accidentally hit and killed her father while learning to park truck.”

“Elle Fanning dressed up as Brad Pitt and nailed it.”

“Sharon Osbourne weighs in on body image debate after Adele’s viral Instagram post.”

“Tina Fey’s daughter crashes interview, calls mom a loser.”

“American artist Rashid Johnson: ‘Anxiety is part of my life.’”

I mean, you can only cover so much news, right?

But why on earth would CNN not even mention who won these elections?

Hmmm.  What’s going on here?

I mean, there are only 435 of these representatives, and they’re responsible for spending all of our money and making all of the federal laws.

You would think that any responsible news organization would at least mention the results.

Ahhh…, well there we have it!

CNN isn’t a responsible news organization…, it’s a part of the propaganda wing for the democrat party!

acnnelect 12

In fact, most of the mainstream, fake news media failed to offer ANY coverage of this as well.

acnnelect 8

When seen from the proper perspective…, CNN, and all of their fake news friends, not mentioning the special elections makes perfect sense.

You see, in the case of this special election, the two congressional seats were won by republicans, and Trump supporters to boot!

This does not fit the liberals’ narrative!

How could this be?

How could this be, when we are told that the whole country wants President Trump impeached?!

How could this be in the swing state of Wisconsin and the democrat stronghold of California?

acnnelect 7

And these republicans both won by substantial margins.  These were not wins that were eked out.

According to Joseph A. Wulfsohn of Fox News, “The GOP clinched major victories in two special elections held on Tuesday but was largely ignored by the mainstream media.”

Thank you, Mr. Wulfsohn, and thank God for Fox News.

If it wasn’t for Fox News, we would have no choice but to consume the democrat, mainstream media, fake news tripe.

“Mike Garcia managed to flip California’s 25th District, becoming the first Republican to do that in the state since 1998.”

This isn’t news?

This doesn’t deserve ANY type of mention?

“Garcia, a former Navy combat pilot, was declared the winner on Wednesday after his Democratic challenger, state assemblywoman Christy Smith, conceded the race. The congressional seat was previously held by Rep. Katie Hill, who resigned last year.”

acnnelect 1

“Wisconsin state senator Tom Tiffany was able to maintain the GOP’s control over the state’s conservative-leaning 7th district left vacant by Rep. Sean Duffy.”

Tiffany was not only “able to maintain” control of Wisconsin’s 7th district seat, he crushed his democrat opponent.  So much so that her name isn’t even mentioned, so as not to completely ruin her political future I suppose.

I have none of those concerns.  Her name is Tricia Zunker.

acnnelect 9

According to Wisconsin Public Radio, “Because of Wisconsin’s status as a swing state in the 2020 presidential election, the May special election is expected to be closely watched for signs of strength or weakness in Trump’s re-election campaign. Trump needs large margins of victory in Wisconsin’s rural areas to win the state, and the race is seen by many as a test of Democrats’ ability to reach rural voters.”

Ha!  So, I guess they failed the test.

acnnelect 3

“Past special elections in recent memory generated plenty of news coverage, particularly when Democrats pick up congressional seats as pundits often hype that such victories are a ‘bellwether’ for what’s to come in the upcoming elections.”

“However, there was little to zero mention of Garcia and Tiffany’s victories on any of the major news networks.”

“None of the three broadcast networks, ABC, CBS, and NBC, aired any coverage of the special election races during Wednesday’s morning programs. The networks skipped such coverage in the evening news shows as well.”

“CNN completely ignored both races throughout the day. Meanwhile, MSNBC once mentioned Garcia’s likely win on Wednesday morning but ignored Tiffany’s victory.”

acnnelect 5

acnnelect 10

Like I have been saying…, the fake news, mainstream media is really just an arm of the democrat party.

We’ve gone past the concern over biased media coverage to calling out these news outlets for what they are…, contrived and constructed liberal propaganda.

How else can you explain their behavior?

And if you’re a democrat…, is that OK?

If that is OK with you…, then you’ve gone from being a victim of the left’s deceit to being a part of the problem.

You’ve graduated from fool to tool.

acnnelect 6

Anyone who is objective and fair-minded cannot be a democrat.

Unemployment rates are high?  You don’t say?!

I’m really getting tired of every time I turn on the news…, any news…, fake or not…, and I hear people bemoaning the unemployment rates.

“We lost 15 million jobs last month!”

“The unemployment rate is at 14.7%!”

“The unemployment rate could go as high as 20% or even 25%!”

“We haven’t seen unemployment rates approaching these levels since The Great Depression!”

NO KIDDING?!

YOU DON’T SAY?!

aemploy 1

aemploy 2

WE INTENTIONALLY SHUT OUR ECONOMY DOWN…, WHAT WOULD YOU EXPECT?!

The real news would be if the unemployment rates didn’t skyrocket!

And as if President Trump’s economic policies are somehow responsible for this.

aemploy 3

As The President likes to remind everyone…, before this voluntary shut down, our economy had been the BEST EVER in US history, and unemployment rates had been at historic, all-time, lows.

Again…, our government chose to shut down our economy for the sake of health considerations pertaining to the coronavirus.

This was not a case of failed economic policies, as in the case of the Obama administration, for example.

These reporters all act like they’re passing along some great breaking news they skillfully unearthed.

Please, do us all a favor, and go ahead and report the numbers…, but please spare us the over-dramatization, and put the situation in the proper and honest perspective.

The most important election of our lifetimes…, WAS THE LAST ONE!

Matt Flegenheimer for The New York Times asks, “What if the Most Important Election of Our Lifetimes Was the Last One?”

aimelect 1

My response to him would be the last election, in 2016, was definitely the most important election of our lifetimes.

The election of 2016 showed that the people who really care about our country could still win a national election, regardless of the blatant liberal propaganda media and the millions of fraudulent votes fabricated by the liberal democrats.

The election of 2016 put an end to the appeasement of Muslim terrorists and those who support them.

The election of 2016 put an end to the wholesale shipment of American jobs overseas.

The election of 2016 put an end to the allowance of virtually every foreign country taking advantage of us via unfair trade agreements and policies.

The election of 2016 ended our dependence on oil from the Middle East.

The election of 2016 brought manufacturing back to America, most importantly of steel, which was a national defense concern.

The election of 2016 has put a finger in the dyke of the seemingly never ending leak of illegal and dangerous immigrants into our country.

The election of 2016 has brought to light many abuses perpetrated by the FBI, the DOJ, the CIA and more, which would have never even been known had Hillary Clinton won the 2016 election.

The election of 2016 forced the liberal propaganda, fake news media to finally, and unquestionably, show themselves for who they are…, an arm of the democrat party, an enemy of our country an enemy of the American people.

The election of 2016 short circuited the unconstitutional UN-Affordable Care Act, better known as ObamaCare, and the attempted government takeover of our private healthcare system.

The election of 2016 brought long awaited reforms which improved the performance of the VA system and the overall treatment of our veterans.

The election of 2016 resulted in the rebuilding and upgrading of our military across the board.

The election of 2016 also resulted in the slashing of thousands and thousands of suffocating and obstructing federal regulations.

Other than that, the election of 2016 wasn’t important at all!

Flegenheimer continues, “Politics runs on superlative: the best plan, the biggest rally, the most votes.”

“And one trope [a figurative or metaphorical use of a word or expression] has proved most enduring of all, repeated each campaign season with well-practiced conviction.”

Hold on a minute.

What is it with these “reporters” from The Times and The Post?  Why do they always feel the need to interject some word that no one ever uses?

I’m sure Flegenheimer spent quite a bit of time coming up with that “elitist word of the day.”

Anyway…, back to the one “figurative or metaphorical use of a word or expression which has proved most enduring of all, and repeated each campaign season with well-practiced conviction.”

‘“This is the most important election of our lifetimes,’ Bernie Sanders said of 2020 last month.”

‘“The most important election of our lives,’ Pete Buttigieg agreed in February.”

‘“Maybe the most important election,’ Joe Biden ruled last year, hedging slightly, ‘no matter how young or old you are.’”

“Maybe. But what if they’re wrong this time? What if the other clichés — of dice cast and Rubicons [defining moments] crossed [there we go again] — have finally overwritten this one? [I actually think he meant to say ‘dies cast.’]”

“What if the most important election of our lifetimes happened already?”

“[President] Trump is in charge during a generational emergency, briefing the nation on life and death with an eye toward television ratings and miracle cures. It can feel unlikely that any choice in 2020 will be as consequential as the fact that he won in the first place.”

“Another Democratic primary day passed on Tuesday, this one in Wisconsin, and with it another reminder of the present limits of presidential politics, of how large the last decision looms and how distant the next one seems.”

Regarding the 2016 election, ‘“It was the rejection of business as usual,’ said Rebecca Kirszner Katz, a progressive Democratic strategist. ‘And that includes any form of competent governing.’”

The word “competent” being a matter of opinion, of course.

To be sure the 2016 election was “the rejection of business as usual.” And if you believe career establishment politicians and anti-American policies represent competency, then Ms. Kirszner Katz is your girl.

“Recent weeks have at once exposed the messiness of the federal virus response and the consistency of [President] Trump’s rampaging leadership instincts, delivering a moment that has at last closed the gap between the permanent chaos of his White House, a once-remote sideshow for many Americans, and the daily upheaval in their own lives.”

Okay, Mr. Flegenheimer, I just have to dissect this last remark.

“The messiness of the federal virus response?”

At least we have a federal response!

And what is “messy” about it?  We have daily, transparent, briefings from The President and his team, and plan of action that’s endorsed by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

What kind of “response” was put together by any other president in the last 50+ years regarding a “response” to a potentially dangerous virus?

Go ahead Flegenheimer…, talk amongst your friends…, I’ll wait.

I hate to interrupt, but…

Don’t you recall other presidents banning travel from foreign countries?

Don’t you recall other presidents ordering that people be quarantined before reentering our country?

Don’t you recall other presidents shutting down educational systems across the country in order to guard against the spread of a virus?

Don’t you recall other presidents ordering all non-essential business be suspended and all personal interactions be limited in order to guard against the spread of a virus?

NO, OF COURSE YOU DON’T, Flegenheimer!

YOU DON’T RECALL ANY OTHER PRESIDENTS DOING ANYTHING BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T DO ANYTHING…, BESIDES GIVE US ALL A BUNCH OF MEANINGLESS LIP SERVICE!

aimelect 2

Please let me remind you, Flegenheimer, since you seem to be factually challenged…,

… we currently have seen 1.9 million coronavirus cases worldwide, resulting in 120,500 deaths.

… we currently have seen 555,000 cases in the United States, resulting in 21,900 deaths.

aimelect 9

… in 2009, the H1N1 virus, or the Swine Flu, effected a billion people worldwide, with 284,000 estimated fatalities.  How come our country wasn’t shut down for this outbreak, President Obama?  Sleepy Joe Biden?  Anybody?

… in 2003 we had the SARS virus.

… in 1999 we had the West Nile Virus.

… in 1968 we had the H3N2 virus, or the Hong Kong Flu, where 33,800 people died in the U.S.

… and in 1957 over a million people died from the Asian Flu worldwide, while 116,000 died in the United States.

When have we cancelled, closed, or shut down anything before because of a virus?

The correct answer is NEVER.

aimelect 10

Getting back to your remark…, “[President] Trump’s rampaging leadership instincts,” could also be referred to as decisive, informed leadership, which has saved tens of thousands of lives.

And then you talk about “a moment that has at last closed the gap between the permanent chaos of his White House, a once-remote sideshow for many Americans, and the daily upheaval in their own lives.”

May I suggest that any “chaos” in the White House, if there is any, is instigated and nurtured by you and your friends in the liberal propaganda, fake news media, and your democrat friends.

‘“What do you have to lose?’ [President] Trump famously asked black voters in 2016, suggesting he was a risk worth taking. He has repeated the question more recently in a new context: to encourage stricken citizens, in defiance of expert opinion, to try an anti-malarial drug to combat the coronavirus.”

Again, aiding you in your “factual challengedness,” Mr. Flegenheimer, the drug you’re referring to is hydroxychloroquine, and it has been proven to be quite effective in many cases.  In fact, many have given the drug credit for saving their lives.

“Of course, the answer to [President] Trump’s initial prompt has always been evident to most Democrats. At stake were health care plans, immigration policies, a generation of court seats and now, they say, many lives that would not have been lost to the coronavirus under more capable executive stewardship.”

And, of course, “the answer” to your answer is that your answer is all politically motivated anti-Trump propaganda and fake news.

‘“I believe history will look back on four years of this president and all he embraces as an aberrant moment in time,’ Biden said in his announcement video last year. ‘But if we give Donald Trump eight years in the White House, he will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation.’”

Only in a positive way, Sleepy Joe…, only in a positive way.

aimelect 8

Oh, and by the way, Sleepy Joe, wasn’t it you who called President Trump a “xenophobe” [a person having a dislike of or prejudice against people from other countries] for blocking any travel from China at the onset of the outbreak, and probably saving tens of thousands of American lives as a result?

aimelect 3

Yes…, it was you Sleepy Joe…, don’t be shy!

‘“The striking thing about the first term is how much damage he was able to inflict,’ said Robert [the third] Reich, a former labor secretary under Bill Clinton who endorsed Sanders in the primary. ‘At the margin, he probably could do more with two terms, and I wouldn’t wish that on this nation. But he’s already done a huge amount.’”

Reich’s level of confusion here is both stunning and impressive.

How could a former labor secretary describe President Trump’s accomplishments regarding the lowest unemployment rates across the board, in history, as “damage?”

“In less trying times, Biden’s record on the subject had been consistent.”

Yes…, consistently a bunch of hot air.

‘“The most important election you’ve ever been part of,’ he told voters in 2018, rallying for midterm candidates.”

‘“The most important election,’ he said in 2016, stumping for Hillary Clinton, ‘in any of your lives.’”

Yeah…, we know…, it’s like, “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.  Period.  If you like your plan you can keep your plan.  Period.”

They’re all just disingenuous words spouting out of an establishment politician’s mouth for the sake of those ignorant enough to believe them.

WINNING!

CNN keeps “doubling down” on their liberal agenda.

Yes folks, CNN does not even pretend to be fair and balanced, unbiased, news anymore.

CNN is squarely and unapologetically in the corner of the liberals and the democrats…, and it’s been that way for years now.

Truth is not their concern…, only the promotion of the liberal narrative…, whatever that may currently be.

CNN and the fake news media was most recently called out when radio talk show host and the host of the TV show “Life, Liberty and Levin, Mark Levin, targeted CNN’s fake news poster child, Jim Acosta.

Joshua Nelson of Fox News reported that, “Mark Levin blasts CNN’s Jim Acosta: ‘He should wear a mask and a dunce cap.’”

acosta 5

Ha! Yeah! Now that would be worth watching!

“Fox News host Mark Levin was one of the many who blasted CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta for interrupting Dr. Deborah Birx during a White House press briefing on the coronavirus last week.”

acosta 21

‘“Jim Acosta’s not a news reporter. He’s a self-aggrandizing narcissist. Exactly what America doesn’t need during the pandemic.  He should wear a mask and a dunce cap.” Mark R. Levin @marklevinshow.’ Mark Levin tweeted.”

acosta 7

And Acosta isn’t alone.  He’s just the current face of the most recent batch of fake news, liberal propagandists, masquerading as journalists.

Acosta, being CNN’s “chief White House correspondent,” means he can lie and misrepresent anything with a straight face…, kind of like Bill Clinton!

“Levin also “linked” to a Washington Free Beacon opinion piece which blasted Acosta for his conduct at White House press briefings, accusing him of using the events to make a name for himself.”

acosta 1

Continuing with the coronavirus White House press conference, “[Dr.] Birx addressed the apparent errors the World Health Organization (WHO) made leading up to the outbreak in the U.S. as something that should be examined.”

‘“I will remind you that on February 3rd [only about a month ago], the head of the WHO said there was no reason to ever do a travel ban,’ Dr. Birx said. ‘It wasn’t until January 14th that we knew that there was human-to-human transmission,’ she continued.”

The Daily Caller tweeted, ‘“Jim Acosta interrupts Dr. Birx as she criticizes the WHO’s response to coronavirus. @DailyCaller,’” while posting a video of the exchange.

acosta 8

“Acosta quickly derailed her observations about WHO to knock President Trump.”

‘“Dr. Birx, the president was saying this was going to go away,’ Acosta said. ‘It’s April.’”

“Many took to social media to blast the reporter.”

‘“Jim Acosta’s interruption of Dr. Birx is an example of how CNN’s echo-journalism model is destroying the media’s credibility. Every question from Acosta is an effort to score points rather than elicit information. It is a press pandemic that continues to rage without relief.  @JonathanTurley’”

“CNN did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.”

Oh really?

Does that surprise anybody?

CNN feels it isn’t accountable to anybody…, and certainly not Fox News.  George Soros, maybe…, but not Fox News nor any of us “deplorables.”

After all of the gnashing of teeth…,

After all of the wringing of hands…,

And after all of the whining…,

It seems that The United States was the most prepared to deal with our current pandemic, although you would think our government was and is failing miserably on every level, according to the dumocrats and the liberal propaganda, fake news, media.

amostprep 10

Gregg Re of Fox News reports, “US was more prepared for pandemic than any other country, a Johns Hopkins study found.”

amostprep 2

Johns Hopkins University is a private research university in Baltimore, Maryland. Founded in 1876.  The university has led the way to revolutionize higher education in the U.S. by integrating teaching and research. Over the course of several decades, the university has led all U.S. universities in annual research and development expenditures. Johns Hopkins is organized into 10 divisions on campuses in Maryland and Washington, D.C., with international centers in Italy and China.

“The United States was ranked the best-prepared country in the world to handle a pandemic in late 2019 by the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) and the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security (JHCHS) — an assessment seemingly at odds with claims by Democrats that the Trump administration left the country vulnerable to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.”

amostprep 1

“The Global Health Security Index was ‘developed with guidance from an international panel of experts from 13 countries, with research by the Economist Intelligence Unit,’ The Washington Post reported last year. ‘More than 100 researchers spent a year collecting and validating publicly available data.’”

Ok…, let’s deal with the facts, dumocrats!

Let’s listen to the researchers and scientists here, as you are so fond of saying.

Ahhh, the scientists…, the liberal equals of “high priests!”

Let’s listen to the “experts,” they cry!

This is just another example, the latest example, of your false narrative being totally discredited.

We’ve heard you declaring that President Trump had slashed the CDC budget.

We’ve heard you say that important support personnel in the CDC had been “trimmed away” by President Trump.

We’ve heard you say The President has silenced or muffled those on his coronavirus team or in his administration who disagree with him.

False, false, false and FALSE!!!

A thousand times FALSE!

It doesn’t seem to stop the fake news, however.

They just shake their latest disproven lie off and spout off another one the next day.

The dumocrats and the liberal propaganda, fake news media have absolutely no shame.

“President Trump’s campaign has argued in recent days that misinformation may be one of the leading causes of that lack of confidence.”

Actually, I believe the whole perception of a “lack of confidence” in the first place, is a misinformation campaign by the fake news.

Additionally, “Trump’s team has pointed to claims by presidential contender Joe Biden that ‘no one on the National Security Council staff was put in charge’ of pandemic preparedness, based on a report that in May 2018, then-National Security Adviser John Bolton eliminated the NSC’s Office of Global Health Security and Biodefense in a reorganization effort.”

“Rear Adm. R. Timothy Ziemer reportedly was ousted as senior director, and no replacement was named. But, FactCheck.org has determined that the matter amounted to a reorganization, and that ‘some team members [of the NSC pandemic office] were shifted to other groups, and others took over some of [the top official’s] duties.’”

“Separately, the Biden team has repeatedly argued that the president once referred to coronavirus as a ‘hoax.’ That claim has been refuted by numerous fact-checkers, including the Post’s, which found that Trump was clearly referring to Democrats’ efforts to blame him for the pandemic, not the virus itself.”

“Additionally, numerous Democrats, including Biden, have falsely claimed that the president cut the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) budget. The Associated Press has noted that those claims ‘distort’ the facts.”

“Instead, financing has [actually] increased.”

amostprep 9

“Some public health experts say a bigger concern than White House budgets is the steady erosion of a CDC grant program for state and local public health emergency preparedness — the front lines in detecting and battling new disease. But that decline was set in motion by a congressional budget measure that predates Trump.”

“Nevertheless, misleading reports about the Trump campaign’s pandemic response efforts have continued to spread.”

Like I said, the dumocrats and the liberal propaganda, fake news media just shake their latest disproven lie off and spout off another one the next day.

It’s actually hard to keep up with all of their lies and misinformation.

That’s all a part of their strategy I imagine.

“A recent report by Reuters that the U.S. had recently terminated a CDC position in China was widely cited by Democrats and reporters as evidence of a lack of preparedness, and formed the basis for a reporter’s question at a recent White House coronavirus briefing.”

amostprep 3

“But, the article itself made clear that experts didn’t think the move had anything to do with the spread of coronavirus in the United States.”

And yet, the “reporter” just parrots the question, like the pathetic liberal “tool” she is.

So sad and so disingenuous.

amostprep 14

I’m not sure how President Trump is able to put up with their crap on a daily basis, to tell you the truth.

President Trump is an amazing man, and I thank God every day that he is willing and able to battle all of these anti-America forces in our own country and around the world.

Hey democrats and fake news media! Be careful what you wish for…, you just might get it!

Yes, democrats, and the fake news media…, “Be careful what you wish for…, because you just might get it!

As they continue searching for anything to criticize The President about, the democrats and the fake news, liberal propaganda, media has latched onto The Defense Production Act…, demanding President Trump invoke this law and use it towards alleviating the shortages for medical equipment that we’re facing.

adefact 12

adefact 11

In fact, in his first “coronavirus update,” Sleepy, Creepy Joe Biden hung his hat on this recommendation and usage of the law as well.

adefact 5

adefact 3

So…, what exactly is the Defense Production Act?

According to Eric Tucker, for The Associated Press, “The Defense Production Act of 1950 was signed by President Harry S. Truman amid concerns about supplies and equipment during that war. It’s been invoked multiple times since then to help the federal government for a range of emergencies including war, hurricanes and terrorism prevention.”

“The act gives the federal government broad authority to direct private companies to meet the needs of the national defense.  Over the decades, the law’s powers have been understood to encompass not only times of war but also domestic emergency preparedness and recovery from terrorist attacks and natural disasters.”

“The act authorizes the president to require companies to prioritize government contracts and orders seen as necessary for the national defense, with the goal of ensuring that the private sector is producing enough goods needed to meet a war effort or other national emergency.”

According to Peter Sullivan, of The Hill, “President Trump on Sunday rejected calls from governors, hospitals and others to direct companies to ramp up production of critical supplies for the coronavirus fight through the use of the Defense Production Act.”

adefact 2

“[President] Trump argued that he has used the Defense Production Act (DPA) as leverage in negotiations with companies to get them to produce supplies and equipment for the coronavirus fight.”

‘“We’re a country not based on nationalizing our business. Call a person over in Venezuela,’ Trump told reporters. ‘How did nationalization of their businesses work out? Not too well.’”

“[President] Trump has been under increasing pressure to use his powers under the DPA to direct private companies to increase production of supplies such as masks and other protective gear for health care workers as well as ventilators, which allow seriously ill people to breathe.”

“New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) warned that prices for crucial masks had spiked from $0.85 to $7 apiece and urged the federal government to step in.  ‘The Federal Government should immediately use the Defense Production Act to order companies to make gowns, masks and gloves,’ Cuomo tweeted Sunday.”

Well, Mr. President, perhaps you should reconsider your stance, and start putting Defense Production Act to good use!

For instance:

MrEricksonRules would immediately order The Washington Post and The New York Times to suspend the printing of their papers switch over to producing toilet paper to meet the national shortages there.

adefact 7

They could still print their articles on the TP if they want to.  In fact, more people would probably read their articles as well under this scenario!

It’s a win-win!

Next, I would order CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, CBS and NPR to use their employees to support the temporary hospitals in New York, by helping with cleaning the bathrooms, taking out the garbage, and generally keeping the facilities clean!

There…, now wouldn’t that be fun!

This would also be a win-win scenario…, as they would be helping out the cause by supporting coronavirus treatment facilities, and at the same time they would not have the time to continue to ramp-up the hysteria about the coronavirus and continue their unceasing attacks on President Trump.

Like I said…, it’s a win-win!

So, yes, democrats, and the fake news media…, “Be careful what you wish for…, because you just might get it!
