President Trump’s Memes Hall of Fame…, so far!

These memes offer up a little payback!

The “biased, liberal propaganda, fakes news media” strikes again!

“We should be outraged by FOX and its apologists,” according to The Washington Post.

Another liberal “rag” magazine, The Nation, recently pronounced that, “Fox News has always been propaganda.”

Sounds like just another coordinated, fake news narrative being spun on multiple fronts.

The sheer and utter hypocrisy of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fakes news media” just never ceases to amaze me…, and they just have NO shame.

fake news

The “biased, liberal propaganda, fakes news media” turned its collective head and looked the other way on countless occasions during the Obama years, or when it had to, they “reasoned away” many concerns or dreamed up excuses as they deemed necessary.

Their behavior during Obama’s reign was the definition of being an “apologist.”

Any fair minded people know that the “biased, liberal propaganda, fakes news media” does not even make an attempt anymore to appear fair or balanced with their coverage of President Trump, the republicans, or conservatives in general.

So I’ll tell you what Washington Post…, you and your friends go on and be outraged at whoever you want and the rest of us will be outraged at whoever we want…, ok?

We all know what causes your “outage.”  It’s the fact that FOX and FOX News does not walk in lock step with your liberal agenda.

What causes our “outrage” is the fact that the mainstream media has become a propaganda arm of the democrat party and along with liberals and socialists everywhere.

The trust and the reputation of the mainstream media is gone and I don’t think it’s ever coming back.

Congratulations.

“Bullying journalists is not presidential.” – Fox News anchor Julie Banderas

President Trump called out a pair of Fox News personalities last Sunday on Twitter, saying that FOX’s John Roberts and Gillian Turner, “…have even less understanding of the Wall negotiations that the folks at FAKE NEWS CNN&NBC!”

According to Erik Pedersen for “Deadline Hollywood,” “A Fox colleague [Former Fox Report Weekend regular and current fill-in anchor Julie Banderas] hit back on the same social media platform.”

“By going on Twitter and insulting two of our journalists @realDonaldTrump is putting a target on their backs. In turn his followers will then attack @johnrobertsFox and @GillianHTurner in support on Twitter. Bullying journalists is not Presidential. Period. https://t.co/xayShIojYj — Julie Banderas (@JulieBanderas) January 28, 2019”

“A few minutes earlier, Banderas had replied to a ‘rando’ [a random tweeter] who counseled her that if she ‘can’t stand some criticism, time to find a new line of work.’ She hit back, with an ‘@POTUS’ target:

‘We can and do stand plenty of criticism every day which is fine coming from everyday viewers. Our jobs are not meant to please others. But the office of the @POTUS ought not to be the one lashing out. That’s not how this country works. That’s not how Freedom of the Press works. https://t.co/buakHRRwPO — Julie Banderas (@JulieBanderas) January 28, 2019,”

Wow…, where do I begin?

Let’s begin by suggesting that Julie Banderas put her “big girl” pants on, first of all.

Next, let’s deal with Ms. Banderas’ understanding of what “bullying” is.

Julie Banderas is saying that because President Trump accused her colleagues, John Roberts and Gillian Turner, of “…having even less understanding of the Wall negotiations that the folks at FAKE NEWS CNN&NBC!” that The President was “bullying” them.

You call this “bullying?”

Really?

How protected you must have been growing up Ms. Banderas.

You were obviously a regular visitor to the various “safe zones” back in college.

I don’t view this as “bullying,” Ms. Banderas…, I view this as The President stating his opinion, which we all still have the right to do the last time I checked (even though Nancy Pelosi is now in charge of The House of Representatives).

I tend to agree with the random tweeter who suggested that if Julie Banderas, “can’t stand some criticism, time to find a new line of work.”

Lastly, Ms. Banderas says, “We can and do stand plenty of criticism every day which is fine coming from everyday viewers. Our jobs are not meant to please others. But the office of the @POTUS ought not to be the one lashing out. That’s not how this country works. That’s not how Freedom of the Press works.”

Thank you Julie for explaining to us all “how this country works,” and how “freedom of the press works.” It must be an awful burden on you to be responsible for being the caretaker of this guarded knowledge!

The fact is that you obviously have no idea how this country works, and that the “freedom of the press” does not override or come before the freedom of speech of all citizens…, including The President of the United States.

Ms. Banderas has also said, “People used to call President Obama stupid.  People used to call him a Muslim.  People used to call him under-qualified, a sellout to America, a hater of Israel.  I mean they called him every name in the book, but you didn’t see him lash out.”

Besides the fact that all of that is true…, who was saying these things?  You can find someone saying just about anything at any time.  The difference with President Trump is that it is other elected politicians (mayors, governors, congress people and senators) saying these hurtful things about him.  It is the “biased, liberal, fake news media saying libelous things about President Trump.  It is the whole Hollywood and entertainment community saying exaggerated untruths about President Trump.

You see Julie, who “they” are makes quite a difference.  What “people” you’re talking about makes quite a difference.

Being a professional “journalist,” you should be able to make that determination on your own.

People in a position to influence others, who are confused, ought not be spouting their ill-informed beliefs for the consumption of the general public.  In this case, they need to be “lashed out” at.  And if the one “lashing out” at these people, who should know better, is The President, then so be it.

“Damn the Torpedoes!” …, and “Damn the Truth!” …, “Damn the Facts!” while you’re at it!  

The “biased, liberal, fake news media,” along with the other typical cast of confused liberal characters, not only got this whole story wrong…, AGAIN…,  but then spent hours and hours castigating and crucifying these poor Catholic school kids, while promoting their own racist narrative.

According to Robby Soave via Reason.com, “‘Journalists’ who uncritically accepted Nathan Phillips’ story got this completely wrong…”

“Partial video footage of students from a Catholic high school (the key word here being ‘partial’) allegedly harassing a Native American veteran after the anti-abortion March for Life rally in Washington, D.C., [on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial] on Saturday quickly went viral, provoking widespread condemnation of the kids on social media. Various media figures and Twitter users called for them to be doxed, shamed, or otherwise punished, and school administrators said they would consider expulsion.”

BUT…, the rest of the video, over two hours of additional footage, shows what happened before and after the incident, and adds important context that strongly contradicts the media’s racist, anti-white, anti-Catholic, narrative.

The full video clearly shows that Nathan Phillips, an Omaha tribal elder, approached the students and was the one who taunted them and not the other way around.

Robby Soave continues by saying, “Far from engaging in racially motivated harassment, the group of mostly white, MAGA-hat-wearing male teenagers remained relatively calm and restrained despite being subjected to incessant racist, homophobic, and bigoted verbal abuse by members of the bizarre religious sect Black Hebrew Israelites (BHI), who were lurking nearby.  [The BHI called the school kids ‘crackers,’ ‘faggots,’ and ‘pedophiles.’ They also called one of the black students the ‘n-word’ and then told him that his friends are going to ‘murder him and steal his organs.’ Throughout the video they threaten the kids with violence, and attempt to goad them into attacking first. The students resisted these taunts admirably: They laughed at the hecklers, and they perform a few of their school’s sports cheers.]”

“The BHI has existed since the late 19th century, and is best described as a ‘black nationalist’ cult movement; its members believe they are descendants of the ancient Israelites, and often express condemnation of white people, Christians, and gays. DC-area Black Hebrews are known to spout particularly vile bigotry.”

The “biased, liberal, fake news media” of course relates more with the BHI as opposed to Catholic high school students. Go figure!

“Phillips put himself between the teens and the black nationalists, chanting and drumming as he marched straight into the middle of the group of young people. [At this point, one of the Native Americans with Phillips shouts: ‘White people, go back to Europe. This is not your land,’ and he curses the students with ‘f-bombs.’] What followed was several minutes of confusion: The teens couldn’t quite decide whether Phillips was on their side or not, but tentatively joined in his chanting. It’s not at all clear this was intended as an act of mockery rather than solidarity.”

Organizers of the March for Life, the annual antiabortion event that had drawn the teenagers to the nation’s capital, initially called the students’ behavior “reprehensible,” but, in a revised statement, said, “It is clear from new footage and additional accounts that there is more to this story than the original video captured.”

Wow.  Was there no one here that didn’t jump to conclusions?

Doesn’t that always seem to be the case?  Isn’t it the responsibility of “the media” to make sure that what they are seeing or what they are told is the whole story?  It seems that our current crop of “journalists” just expect stories to be “spoon fed” to them and they just run with them “sight unseen.”

The students’ congressman, Representative Thomas Massie, a republican from Kentucky, praised the students, tweeting that “in the face of racist and homosexual slurs, the young boys refused to reciprocate or disrespect anyone.”

Mr. Soave also feels, “The boys are undoubtedly owed an apology from the numerous people who joined this social media pile-on. This is shaping up to be one of the biggest major media misfires in quite some time.”

Oh…, you mean since way back to the “BuzzFeed” article?  All the way back to last week?  Is that the “in quite some time” you’re referring to?

And even CNN’s Jake Tapper admitted the [biased, liberal, fake news] media’s error:

“.@reason: “Video footage strongly contradicts Native American veteran Nathan Phillips’ claim that Covington Catholic High School boys harassed him. The media got this one completely wrong,” writes @robbysoave https://t.co/9Ki4iiTkQ9

— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) January 20, 2019”

Of course, we haven’t seen any of the same “reporters” on NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN or MSNBC spend any time “on air” apologizing for their foolishness and apologizing for jumping to their own racist conclusions.

Some of the students from Covington Catholic High School were also attacked by the “biased, liberal, fake news media” for wearing their red “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) hats.

These kids are from Kentucky.  If you were one of them and making a trip to Washington D.C., and you were a fan of our president, where would be a better place to wear your MAGA hat and show your support than while you were out in the nation’s capital?

Isaac Stanley-Becker, writing for the Washington Post says, “At first, politicians ‘sounded the alarm.’  Celebrities professed outrage.  School officials joined the Catholic Diocese of Covington in apologizing for the students, who were threatened as their private information poured out online.”

Excuse me…, again, but the “biased, liberal, fake news media” are truly a bunch of “biased, liberal, fake news,” race baiting idiots.

Of course, by virtue of the MAGA hats, President Trump was dragged into the whole fake “disgustingly racial” issue.

The President blamed the media, and rightfully so, for the fallout, which he said was responsible for “early judgements proving out to be false.”

He responded by tweeting:

“Nick Sandmann and the students of Covington have become symbols of Fake News and how evil it can be. They have captivated the attention of the world, and I know they will use it for the good – maybe even to bring people together. It started off unpleasant, but can end in a dream!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 22, 2019”

Actress, a leading voice in the #MeToo movement, an outspoken critic of Mr. Trump, and self-proclaimed liberal activist, Alyssa Milano, whose opinion matters why? Tweeted:

“The red MAGA hat is the new white hood. (Obviously jumping off the deep end and equating Red MAGA hats to Ku Klux Klan hoods.)

Without white boys being able to empathize with other people, humanity will continue to destroy itself. #FirstThoughtsWhenIWakeUp

— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) January 20, 2019”

Well, miss “#FirstThoughtsWhenIWakeUp,” MAYBE YOU SHOULD WAKE UP first before spewing your racist ignorance all over the internet!

Perhaps, Alyssa, you and your liberal friends should start wearing YOUR new MAGA equivalent hats…, DUNCE HATS!

The same media figures and Twitter users who called for the Covington students be “doxed, shamed, or otherwise punished,” should themselves be “doxed, shamed, or otherwise punished.”

Hey…, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander, right?

That is correct (I’m answering myself here), everywhere EXCEPT in the “biased, Liberal, fake news” world, where there is an extreme double standard, and a level of hypocrisy which knows no bounds and knows no shame.

Remember, stay thirsty (for the truth) my friends, and don’t drink the liberal Kool Aide!

Oh Mika you’re so fine (dumb), you’re so fine (dumb) you blow my mind, hey Mika, hey Mika!  

MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ co-host, Mika Brzezinski, apologized for using a homophobic slur when describing Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as a “butt-boy.”

Our “oh so politically correct” Comrade Brzezinski took issue with Pompeo’s recent comments to Fox News regarding Saudi Arabia Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman’s involvement in the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, according to Fox News’ Brian Flood.

“Why doesn’t Mike Pompeo care right now?” Brzezinski asked. “Are the pathetic deflections that we just heard when he appeared on ‘Fox and Friends,’ is that a patriot speaking, or a wannabe dictator’s butt-boy?  I’m dead serious.  I’m asking, are these the words of a patriot?”

Say what?!

Let me try and put my response in Comrade Brzezinski’s own words.

loe-scarborough-and-mika-brzezinski-msnbc-fox21-ans-sio-rica-25908351

Why doesn’t Mika Brzezinski care right now, I’m asking?  Is the pathetic homophobic slur we just heard when she appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” is that a responsible nation-wide news show host talking, or a wannabe cable news network’s snarky bitch?  I’m dead serious.  I’m asking, are these the words of a responsible nation-wide news show host?

Ya, that about covers it.

Brian Flood goes on to say that, “A viewer took to Twitter, calling the remark ‘as homophobic a term as I’ve heard on national morning television,’ noting that MSNBC did not include the slur in its closed captioning. ‘Maybe don’t equate homosexuality with Mike Pompeo carrying water for the murderous regime in Saudi Arabia,’ the viewer wrote.”

Brzezinski agreed (How could she not?) and quoted the tweet while offering an apology.  She also apologized to Senator Dick Durbin, who was on set at the time.

“SUPER BAD choice of words,” she wrote. “I should have said ‘water boy’… like for football teams or something like that… apologize to @SenatorDurbin too! SO SORRY!”

You know what Mika?  You sit there every morning with your little “butt-boy” (your words not mine) Joe Scarborough, with your “holier than thou” and your “more PC than thou” attitude, and then you spout out this kind of stuff?

double-standards_new

You batter President Trump on a daily basis, calling him a racist, a misogynist, an islamaphobe and a homophobe, but you’re the one actually saying this stuff.

Of course according to you, in your case, it’s just a “super bad choice of words.”

Actually it’s not.  Actually it’s a glimpse into your true persona.

“If it was a Conservative that said what ‘crazed’ Mika Brzezinski stated on her show yesterday, using a certain horrible term, that person would be banned permanently from television,” President Trump tweeted.  “She will probably be given a pass, despite their terrible ratings.”

According to Brian Flood, “MSNBC did not immediately respond when asked if the network condones or plans to do anything about Brzezinski’s comment.”

Of course, Comrade Brzezinski isn’t the first MSNBC star to make homophobic remarks.

We also have sista’ Joy Reid who claimed hateful and anti-gay rhetoric on her blog was planted by “diabolical hackers,” a claim that quickly fell apart.  Reid had even said she reported the hacking “crime” to the FBI. She eventually “kinda-sorta” admitted writing homophobic slurs.

So technically, we’d have to identify her as a lying homophobe, not just a homophobe.

“Back in April, Reid got emotional on the air and admitted it seemed unlikely she was hacked, but that she didn’t recall making the offensive remarks, for which she apologized anyway,” Flood added.

“I genuinely do not believe I wrote those hateful things,” Reid told her viewers (all 3 of them), adding, “The person I am now is not the person I was then.”

Joy Reid displays the typical level of liberal confusion, shared by many of her “biased, fake news media” cohorts.  She is in self-denial and unable to hold herself accountable for her own words while crucifying others for their words.

MSNBC has stood by sista’ Reid and she continues to host a show on the network.

The “biased, liberal, fake news media” shows its true colors once again!

In a special “runoff” election Tuesday night, the last Senate seat up for grabs in 2018 was claimed by the Republican, Cindy Hyde-Smith, by a 54% – 46% margin over the Democrat, Mike Espy.

I guess the “blue wave” didn’t make it too far ashore in the state of Mississippi!

But I digress.

Not only did Hyde-Smith win, giving the Republicans a 53-47 margin in the Senate, she was the first woman elected as a senator from the state of Mississippi.  So it was historical in that aspect as well.

Other than possibly the news regarding the migrant caravan on our southern border, this election story should probably have been the most newsworthy item out there this morning.

So, how did the “biased, liberal, fake news media” choose to cover this election story?

Well, let’s take a look the day after the election.

On “The Washington Post’s” website, you have to scroll down to the 28th story listed there.  The headline reads: “Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith wins racially charged election over Democrat Mike Espy.”

On “Yahoo News,” we have to scroll down to the 100th story listed there, where the headline reads: “Mississippi voters send Hyde-Smith back to the US Senate after runoff marred by controversy.”

On the MSNBC website, there is no mention of election results at all until we see a reference to a story that appears on their show, “Morning Joe,” regarding the election.  And we only see this after scrolling over halfway down the website, past 39 other stories.

Lastly, we have our good friends over at CNN.  Of the 100 articles listed on their website, we find no headline about the actual election results.  The only story we find is titled: “What we learned from the 2018 Senate race.”

We can see that even when the story is mentioned, albeit as an afterthought, it only appears with some sort of negative connotation along with it.

You see, when reality doesn’t support the narrative, reality is just basically ignored by the “biased, liberal, fake news media.

I call this “propaganda by omission,” and it is conducted by the “biased, liberal, fake news media” almost every day.

Alternatively, suppose the democrat had won the election in Mississippi.

Do you think the “biased, liberal, fake news media” would have covered the story any differently?

Do you think the story would have appeared more prominently in their “story pecking order?”

Do you think we may have seen more positive headlines, bordering on being almost joyous in nature?

The answers to these questions are YES, YES and YES.

So once again, we have a blatant display of how the “biased, liberal, fake news media” operates.

They can deny their bias, preferential treatment, misinformation and propagandizing all they want, but we are wise to their tricks now and they have our full and undivided attention. Their days of getting away with this are over!

time-welcome-to-america-its-because-they-are-fake-news-34343909

You know the old saying: “If you can’t beat ‘em, silence ‘em!”

So you don’t remember it quite like that?  Me neither.  But then again I’m not a democrat/liberal.

If you’re a democrat/liberal, the ends justify the means.  There is no concern about being fair…, just winning.  If they can’t beat you fair and square, they’ll change the rules, change the playing field, or just have you taken out of the game.

In this instance, we’re referring to cable news ratings.  Specifically between the three major cable news networks: CNN, Fox News and MSNBC.

According to Mark Joyella, who is a contributor for Forbes.com, “Fox News Crushes The Cable News Competition In October Ratings.”

Just to be clear, Fox News channel routinely “crushes” CNN and MSNBC, and it’s been that way for years now.  What we’re really talking about in October is an annihilation, or a complete domination.

Most of the time, Fox News Channel’s competitors can point to something and say, “we beat them here” or “we beat them there.  It could be just an hour slot during the day or a special weekend show.  Earlier this year MSNBC’s prime-time “star” Rachel Maddow turned in her show’s best week ever, and the liberal media were all popping the champagne.  But that was then and this is now.

Joyella confessed that, “Fox News wiped the floor with CNN and MSNBC in October, beating the combined ratings of the two networks in prime-time, and delivering wall-to-wall wins across all key day parts. Fox News also saw its ratings climb in October from the same month a year ago, as its competition, with few exceptions, saw significant viewership drops.”

See what I mean?  Complete and utter domination.

For the seventh month in a row, Fox News host Sean Hannity (the unrivaled King of Cable News) was the most-watched host in cable news, with a total audience of 3.495 million.

Fox News then continued by running the table with the top-five most-watched shows in prime, with Hannity followed by Tucker Carlson (3.231 million), Laura Ingraham (2.973 million), The Five (2.838 million) and Special Report with Bret Baier (2.668 million).

Several Fox News shows, including The Ingraham Angle, The Story with Martha MacCallum, Outnumbered with Harris Faulkner, The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino and Fox News at Night with Shannon Bream had all-time high ratings in October.

Overall, Fox News viewership was up +25 percent in October (in total viewers).  Among viewers 25-54 years old, the key demographic coveted by advertisers, Fox grew compared to October 2017 by +13 percent, while CNN was down -11 percent and MSNBC was down -19 percent.

MSNBC had several of its key shows, including Morning Joe, All In with Chris Hayes, The Rachel Maddow Show, The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell and The 11th Hour with Brian Williams return their lowest-rated month of 2018 in October.

MSNBC was largely uncontested for second place overall (If you ain’t first, you’re last!), beating CNN among total viewers in prime time and total day viewership for the 13th consecutive month.

You can infer whatever you want from these numbers, but in any case it isn’t good for the state of “biased, liberal, fake news.”

So, how are the liberals and the “biased, liberal, fake news media” responding?

They are sicking the liberal media group “Media Matters” on Fox News, in an attempt to mount negative pressure on their advertisers!

According to Brian Stelter at CNN Business, “Media Matters’ president Angelo Carusone, who previously led boycotts against Glenn Beck and others, said on Monday that Fox’s programming ‘is only getting more extreme and volatile,’ and that’s why he is taking action now.”

“‘Fox News’ never-ending focus on demonizing political opponents and front-line communities, echoing [President] Trump and framing the struggle against these groups as an urgent matter of life or death, makes the network an increasingly bad business decision for advertisers,’ Carusone said.”

“Liberal critics of Fox, like Carusone, have pointed a finger directly at Fox, accusing the media company of inflaming tensions across the country.”

“Neera Tanden, the president of the liberal Center for American Progress, tweeted on Sunday, ‘It really is time to boycott Fox News advertisers. Who has the list? I’m game.’”

“Media Matters has been moving in this direction for a while. The group challenged Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity’s advertisers in the past.”

“In his statement on Monday, Carusone named ‘major Fox News advertisers’ like Expedia, McDonalds and Capital One.  Media Matters also published a list of other advertisers on its website.

Carusone urged the companies to ‘listen to their customers’ and ‘consider suspending their relationship with Fox News until the network makes meaningful changes to curb its propagandistic narratives that intentionally spread disinformation and incentivize violence.’”

These accusations are typical for “the swamp.”  They charge others with doing exactly what they are guilty of doing in an effort to deflect attention from themselves and shut down and silence anyone who disagrees with them or anyone who challenges their liberal narrative.

In a statement to CNN, Marianne Gambelli, the president of ad sales for Fox News and Fox Business, said “we cannot and will not allow voices to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts.”

“Media Matters continues to turn a blind eye to every television network but Fox News since it’s the only outlet that doesn’t subscribe to their extreme left-wing political agenda,” she said.

Fox News has quite a bit of experience fending off advertiser pressure campaigns like this, however

Sean Hannity has been outspoken in his opposition to boycotts of all kinds.

“EVERY American should see the danger of politically motivated efforts and boycotts to silence speech they disagree with,” he said.

Hang in there FOX!  Without you we would be at the mercy of the “biased, liberal, fake news media,” and their uncontested “fake news” would sadly become just “the news” again, and our country would be worse off because of it.
