CNN is fake news?! No way! Way!!!

Mark Moore, for the New York Post, reports that, “A CNN staffer boasts to Project Veritas that network peddled anti-Trump ‘propaganda.’”

“Charlie Chester, a technical Director at CNN, claims, ‘If it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know that Trump would have got voted out,’ during a series of fake Tinder dates filmed by Project Veritas.”

“Tinder” is a social networking and online dating app.

Do we love Project Veritas, or what?!

This is too funny!

What a moron…, bragging to fake Tinder dates how influential CNN and he were!

‘“Look what we did, we [CNN] got Trump out. I am 100​ percent going to say it, and I 100​ percent believe that if it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know that Trump would have got voted out,’ Chester said, adding that he came to work at CNN because he ‘​wanted to be a part of that.’”

‘“Our focus was to get Trump out of office, right? Without saying it, that’s what it was.’”

Many of us were already aware of this, but for those who had any doubt, here it right from the horse’s mouth.

“Chester explained how they overdramatized Trump health issues by bringing in medical experts.”

‘“[Trump’s] hand was shaking or whatever, I think. We brought in so many medical people to all tell a story that was all speculation – that he was neurologically damaged, and he was losing it. He’s unfit to – you know – whatever. We were creating a story there that we didn’t know anything about. I think that’s propaganda,’ he said.”

So, he thinks that was propaganda.

Uh, yeah, Charlie, I think you’re correct there.

Definitely propaganda.

“Asked by the ​sleuth if he and CNN were concerned with Joe Biden’s health during the election, Chester said the network had that in mind.​”

‘“Showing him jogging is obviously deflection of his age and they’re [CNN] trying to make it like, ‘Oh, I’m healthy,’ Chester said.”

“The date asked, ‘What do you mean?’”

“Charlie Chester, a technical Director at CNN says the network was ‘creating a story there that we didn’t know anything about,’ in regards to former President Donald Trump’s health issues.”

‘“We would always show shots of him [Biden] jogging and that [he’s] healthy, you know, and him in aviator shades. Like you paint him as a young geriatric​,’ Chester replied.”

“A source close to CNN said Project Veritas targeted Chester through the dating app Tinder because his profile mentioned he worked at CNN, according to Mediaite [a political website].”

“The Project Veritas employee, who was not identified and claimed to be a nurse, went on five dates wearing a wire, including the final one at a coffee shop in Chester’s neighborhood.”

Ha!

These people are better than the FBI!  

“Chester told his ‘date’ he would be fine with it if Biden died, because he thought Vice President Kamala Harris is ‘f—ing real.’”

I’m sure Illegitimate Joe will be glad to hear that.

‘“I had so many arguments about, like — my dad would be like, “You’re, you know, you’re voting in Kamala Harris because he’s going to die in the presidency,” Chester told the woman. ‘And I’m like, He’s not going to f—ing die.’ But I’m OK with that. I’m OK with that. She probably could be a b—h in, like, a board meeting, and you’d hate her as a boss, but she’s f—ing real, and better than what we got regardless.’”

Wow…, how gender sensitive of you, Charlie.

Yup…, “woke” Charlie, that’s our boy!

“Chester was asked if CNN covered Biden tripping as he walked up the stairs.”

‘“You talk about that briefly. You don’t make that a huge story,’ he said.”

“CNN did not respond to requests for comment by The Post.”

OH, REEEEALLY?!!!

Project Veritas is like the modern-day version of “Candid Camera,” only you’re not sympathetic for the person being caught on camera.

“During one of the meetings with his ‘date,’ Chester talked about how CNN also targeted anti-Trump voters by focusing on climate change, adding ‘fear sells.’”

Well, CNN must have been ecstatic about the pandemic!

‘“I think there’s a COVID fatigue. So, like whenever a new story comes up, they’re [CNN’s] going to latch onto it. They’ve already announced in our office that once the public is — will be open to it — we’re going to start focusing mainly on climate,’ Chester said.”

‘“It’s going to be our [CNN’s] focus. Like our focus was to get Trump out of office, right? Without saying it, that’s what it was, right? So, our next thing is going to be climate change awareness​,’ he added.”

Thanks for the “heads up,” Charlie…, I’ll have to keep my eyes open for that.

“Charlie Chester, a technical Director at CNN, says the network’s goal was ‘to be climate change awareness​,’ following President Donald Trump’s election loss.”

‘“What’s that look like?’ Chester was asked.”

‘“I don’t know. I’m not sure. I have a feeling that it’s going to be like, constantly showing videos of decline in ice, and weather warming up, and like the effects it’s having on the economy​,’ Chester said.”

“​Asked who makes that decision, he said the ‘head of the network,’ referring to Jeff Zucker.”

‘“I imagine that he’s got his council and they’ve all like, discussed, like where they think​,​’​ he said​, trailing off.”

“He then said the new focus would be on a ​​‘p​andemic-like story that we’ll beat to death, but that one’s got longevity.’​”

‘“​Like there’s a definitive ending to the pandemic. It’ll taper off to a point that it’s not a problem anymore. Climate change can take years, so they’ll [CNN will] probably be able to milk that quite a bit,’ he said.​”

At the rate CNN is losing viewership, these days, CNN may not be around long enough to do much “milking.”

If anybody had any doubts about where CNN was coming from, I thinks those doubts have now all been laid to rest.

Fake News…, Fake News everywhere!

According to David Rutz of Fox News, “The Washington Post made a massive correction Monday to a January report about a phone call between then-President Donald Trump and Georgia elections investigator Frances Watson, admitting it wrongly attributed multiple quotes to Trump based on an anonymous source.”

An “Anonymous source.”

Using “anonymous sources” give the democrat propaganda fake news media license to make up any story they want.

Let’s see how many negative stories are attributed to “anonymous sources” over the next four years about Illegitimate Joe and his democrat friends in Washington. 

My guess would be ZERO.  

Regarding former President Trump, and anyone around him, it was an almost daily occurrence.  

“The Post initially reported Trump had told an official working in Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office to ‘find the fraud’ in the state, which he lost narrowly to Joe Biden, and that she would be a ‘national hero’ if she did.”

My first reaction would be, “so, what?”

“However, a newly emerged recording of the Dec. 23 call found he didn’t use those words. Instead, Trump said she would be ‘praised’ when the ‘right answer comes out’ and encouraged her to closely examine mail-in ballots in Fulton County, the heavily blue and most populated county in the state.”

My biggest issue here is with this “newly emerged recording” stuff.

How many recordings of their calls with former President Trump are there?

It’s like they recorded their conversations with him (Is this even legal?), in the hopes of being able to “catch” him in the act of something…, and if they couldn’t they just made up remarks and attributed them to him.

On a side note, how many “leaked” call with President Biden do you think we’ll be hearing about?

Again, my guess would be ZERO. 

“The Post published a lengthy correction to its story: ‘Correction: Two months after publication of this story, the Georgia secretary of state released an audio recording of President Donald Trump’s December phone call with the state’s top elections investigator. The recording revealed that The Post misquoted Trump’s comments on the call, based on information provided by a source. Trump did not tell the investigator to ‘find the fraud’ or say she would be ‘a national hero’ if she did so. Instead, Trump urged the investigator to scrutinize ballots in Fulton County, Ga., asserting she would find ‘dishonesty’ there. He also told her that she had ‘the most important job in the country right now.’ A story about the recording can be found here. The headline and text of this story have been corrected to remove quotes misattributed to Trump.’”

Well, isn’t that nice?

“CNN also reported on the call citing an unnamed source and waited until Monday afternoon to correct its story, after initially stating Trump said ‘national hero’ and ‘find the fraud’ in its opening paragraph. Many outlets picked up the story, including Vox, ABC News, and NBC News.”

This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anybody.

They all jumped into the pool of lies and democrat propaganda, just like they always do.

Sooo predictably “swampy.”

“While news outlets often cite sources who paraphrase conversations they participated in or overheard, using quotes indicates to the reader a subject said those exact words.”

Reeeeeally?

Thank you, professor!

‘“Our media are so, so, so breathtakingly corrupt,’ Fox News contributor Mollie Hemingway tweeted. ‘They *always* mischaracterized this call — in a corrupt and fraudulent way. But to actually make up quotes in service of that? We are so screwed. By our disgustingly corrupt and unaccountable media.’”

Much like their “mischaracterizations” of President Trump’s call with the Ukrainian President…, only those “mischaracterizations” were much worse.   

“After MSNBC’s Hayes Brown defended the Post and praised its correction, Hemingway fired back that it was hardly a ‘self-policing win.’”

‘“So, they made up quotes? What in the actual F?’ conservative CNN commentator Mary Katharine Ham tweeted.”

“Conservative writer Mark Hemingway said the Post’s correction and new headline did not adequately reflect its wrongdoing, calling the mistake ‘beyond serious’ and indicative of the lack of accountability in corporate media.”

“In the conversation with Watson, Trump continued to claim he won Georgia by ‘hundreds of thousands of votes’ (which he did) and ‘something bad happened’ there (which it did).”

“Watson told Trump her team and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation was focused on finding the truth and looking into any claims of fraud or wrongdoing.”

“Trump was the first Republican to lose the state in a presidential election since 1992. He repeatedly attacked Raffensperger and Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, R., after he lost the race there, accusing them of being corrupt. Multiple audits and investigations did not uncover evidence of widespread fraud in the state, and recounts confirmed the result.”

Former President Trump has responded by saying, “While I appreciate the Washington Post’s correction, which immediately makes the Georgia Witch Hunt a non-story, the original story was a Hoax, right from the very beginning.”

And, “You will notice that establishment media errors, omissions, mistakes, and outright lies always slant one way—against me and against Republicans.,” President Trump said. “Meanwhile, stories that hurt Democrats or undermine their narratives are buried, ignored, or delayed until they can do the least harm—for example, after an election is over.”

And lastly, President Trump added, “Look no further than the negative coverage of the vaccine that preceded the election and the overdue celebration of the vaccine once the election had concluded. A strong democracy requires a fair and honest press. This latest media travesty underscores that legacy media outlets should be regarded as political entities (I would say ‘enemies.’), not journalistic enterprises.”

As we have discussed before, the “media” is supposed to act as a watchdog of government for the people.  When they become participants in the spreading of propaganda for any political interests, “We are so screwed,” in the words of Mollie Hemingway.

Calling all patriots!

It’s time to fight back against Google, Facebook and Twitter.

These applications have undoubtedly become unapologetic propaganda arms for the democrats.

They even stooped to trying to influence the election…, which they did.

But we don’t have to be bound to them.

Their disgusting behavior is not a fate we have to accept.

This is not OK.   

It’s time for people who value their freedom, along with their First Amendment rights, to ditch these anti-American, social media manipulators for some much better options.

I wonder what the reaction would be on Wall Street if each of these applications lost million users within a couple of months?

I’m not sure, but I’d sure like the chance to find out!  

I say let the liberals censor each other as much as they want.

Let them continue to propagate their lies to each other to their heart’s content.

But me, I’m checking out.

I’ve been put in “Facebook jail” and censored for the last time.

I refuse to let them and their armies of little Nazis impose their censorship, their “fact checking” and “community values” and “community standards” on my voice any longer.

We are dangerously close to the type of media control we see in Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, etc., with our own “deep state” controlled media and the recent social media censorship. 

   

How many times have you wished there were conservative alternatives to these fascist organizations?

Well, the good news is there are!

Instead of Google, try using 4conservative.com or 4search.com.

And instead of Twitter or Facebook, try using Parler.com.

According to Chris Ciacciaof FOXBusiness, “In the wake of the presidential election, the social media app Parler topped Apple’s App Store for the first time over the weekend.”

“In an email to FOX Business, research firm Apptopia said downloads for the ‘non-biased, free speech’ platform topped 310,000 over the past week, with the peak starting on Nov. 6. In the week prior, the app had been downloaded just over 150,000 times.”

“Earlier this month, Parler CEO John Matze criticized what he described as Twitter and Facebook censorship surrounding the election, saying that the companies had ‘gone too far.”  He added that his app was ‘free of editorial bullies trying to tell you what to think.’”

The sooner we free ourselves from Google, Facebook and Twitter, the better we’ll feel, and the better off we’ll all be.

The next thing you know they’ll be recording our phone conversations and monitoring those for unacceptable speech.

Oh wait…, I forgot they already do record our conversations!

They just haven’t gotten to the point where we receive warnings in the mail or something about our unacceptable speech which they have detected!

Just wait…, it’s coming folks.

It’s coming.

Your definition of “peaceful” is shameful!   

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “CBS News’ Norah O’Donnell says ‘mostly peaceful’ protests caused $1B to $2B in damage from looting and arson.”

That’s a pretty general statement, and as we will learn, that only reflects damages over a two-week period, not for all “protests” in total.

‘“Peaceful protests don’t leave behind death, destruction, and shattered lives in their wake,’ media analyst Nicholas Fondacaro says.”

“Many members of the mainstream media have made sure to paint nationwide protests as ‘peaceful’ in recent months– and ‘CBS Evening News’ anchor Norah O’Donnell demonstrated how far they’re willing to go on Wednesday night.”

Let’s stop and think about this for minute.

Is that really the job of the mainstream media and “CBS Evening News” in this particular instance, to “paint” events which are happening in our country or around the world?

Aren’t “news organizations” supposed to report what’s happening and let the public decide what to think about it?

“Axios [Axios is an American news website, founded in 2016, and launched the following year by former Politico team members.] reported earlier in the day that damage caused by ‘riots and civil disorders’ from May 26 through June 8 would cost insurance companies between $1-2 billion.”

‘“The vandalism and looting following the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police will cost the insurance industry more than any other violent demonstrations in recent history,’ Axios reported.”

Please note that it still hasn’t been determined that the officers were responsible for George Floyd’s death.

“When O’Donnell reported the overwhelming figure, she made sure to insist the protests were mostly peaceful.”

“Overwhelming figure?”

The real “overwhelming figure” would be the figure that takes into account ALL of the “protesting,” rioting, looting, burning, and vandalizing which has occurred over the past four months.

I would conservatively, no pun intended, estimate those damages to be in the tens of billions of dollars…, which taxpayers and people with insurance will end up paying for, I’m sure.

‘“The protests in late spring were mostly peaceful, but damage from looting and arson will cost $1 to $2 billion in claims. That’s according to the Insurance Information Institute. And that would eclipse the previous high, the 1992 riots that followed the acquittal of four officers in the beating of Rodney King,’ O’Donnell told viewers.”

In truth, the “protests” were mostly NOT peaceful.

“Media Research Center analyst Nicholas Fondacaro pointed out that NBC’s ‘Nightly News’ and ABC’s ‘World News Tonight’ didn’t bother to report the alarming statistic. While O’Donnell at least informed viewers of the damage, Fondacaro doesn’t understand why she needed to add the disclaimer.”

Has the Media Research Center mentioned that the mainstream media has failed to report much, if any, of the violence tied to the “protests” of the last four months?

It’s not really surprising then that most of the media failed to point out these “alarming statistics,” is it?

That answer would be a big, “no.”

‘“Earth to the liberal media, ‘peaceful’ protests don’t leave behind death, destruction, and shattered lives in their wake,’ Fondacaro wrote.”

What death, destruction and shattered lives are you talking about?  Don’t you realize, Mr. Fondacaro, that if the liberal propaganda fake news media doesn’t report something it didn’t really happen?

“Insurance Information Institute (or Triple-I) compiles information from a company called Property Claim Services (PCS), which has tracked insurance claims related to civil disorder since 1950, and other databases. It provided reports to Axios that the damage from unrest between May 26 and June 8 will be the most expensive in the nation’s history, surmounting the Rodney King riots of 1992 in Los Angeles.”

“The price tag could be as much as $2 billion and possibly more, according to Triple I. But the protests related to Floyd differ from others the database has tracked – never before have they been so widespread.”

‘“It’s not just happening in one city or state – it’s all over the country,’ Loretta L. Worters of the Triple-I told Axios. ‘And this is still happening, so the losses could be significantly more.’”

That’s a real good guess there, Ms. Worters.

I guess Captain Obvious could be a woman, although I never really thought about it before!

“The last time PCS compiled insurance losses for a ‘civil disorder event’ was 2015, when riots erupted in Baltimore after Freddie Gray died from a neck injury in police custody. But those riots did not even accrue $25 million in damages.”

Not even $25 million?

Well that’s hardly even worth mentioning then!

Ya know, I’ve seen that rich liberals and Biden staffers, encouraged by Kamala Harris, are raising a lot of money to bail some of these violent “protesters” out of jail. Quite a few in fact.

I keep reading about some of these scared companies donating millions and millions of dollars to the Black Lives Matter organization too.

Maybe the bail-out fund, the Black Lives Matter organization, and the rest of their corporate friends can help pay for some of the damage their friends have caused?

Just sayin’.

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 Portland Police are giving up on policing the “far-right???”

Policing the “far-right?”

How about policing the “far-left?!!!”

The last time I checked, Portland was into their 70th or 80th or whatever ridiculous number of straight nights of violence, burning, and looting, courtesy of the neo-fascist, radical, left-wing, rioters.

But, they’re giving up on policing the far-right?

How about even beginning to police the far-left?!

According to Andy Campbell for HuffPost [HuffPost is a liberal American news website], “The Portland Police Bureau [PPB] appears to have all but given up on policing the far-right factions brawling in the Oregon city’s streets, despite a recent escalation in violence that has seen those extremists throw explosives, brandish guns and in one case fire them at other protesters.”

apolice 1

“It’s common to see far-right extremist groups like the ‘Proud Boys’ exchanging blows with counter-protesters in Portland. They’ve been doing that for years, often as PPB officers watched until a riot was officially declared and then police cleared the streets using tear gas and other munitions.”

I must admit, I was not aware of these confrontations between the left and the right groups amid the rioting in Portland.

For some reason, it was a well-kept secret by the media.

And this is the first I’ve heard of “the proud boys” as well.

“But over the weekend, police took an entirely hands-off approach to the fighting, even as the demonstrations grew more violent than ever.”

Excuse me, but, you’re saying the Portland police taking a “hands-off approach” with the violence is news?

Just sayin’.

“As officers stood by on Saturday, the ‘Proud Boys’ and their far-right friends attacked and intimidated anti-fascist protesters using paintball guns, mace, fireworks, aluminum bats and various firearms, according to The Washington Post.”

The term “anti-fascist protesters,” which is used here, is a complete misnomer.

These radical, left-wing, agitators, are neither “anti-fascists” nor
protesters.”

They are neo-fascist terrorists.

And, oh, the poor, poor protesters!

They were being intimidated!!!

Can you imagine?!

The nerve of those ruthless “proud boys!”

apolice 6

Now, getting back to the “far-right” groups, as the HuffPost describes them, “One of them — notorious ‘Proud Boys’ organizer Alan Swinney — was seen pointing a gun at protesters, his finger on the trigger. Another ‘Proud Boy,’ Tusitala “Tiny” Toese, was present, per the Post, in apparent violation of his parole over an attack at a similar demonstration in 2017 (he wasn’t apprehended on Saturday, but a judge on Monday issued a warrant for his arrest).”

apolice 2

Now, this is a new wrinkle to the riot reporting.

They name the members of this “proud boy” group.

I don’t recall the media naming any members of the rioting group, much less attaching a name to the rioting group in general.

It’s obviously a preconceived propaganda strategy of the fake news.

apolice 3

“Meanwhile, over a loudspeaker, police encouraged those present to ‘self-monitor for criminal activity.’ In essence, the PPB had thrown up its hands.”

“Self-monitor?!

Ha!!!

That’s a good one I haven’t heard before!

“In a statement to The Washington Post, the bureau said that officers were tired from responding to ongoing demonstrations against racism and police brutality, which have kept Portland in the national spotlight for weeks. Officers wouldn’t intervene in small skirmishes between ‘willing participants,’ even if the clashes fit the city’s definition of a riot.”

Can you blame them?

Can you blame them one little bit?

The correct answer to these questions is “no,” just in case you were wondering.

‘“Each skirmish appeared to involve willing participants and the events were not enduring in time, so officers were not deployed to intervene,’ the bureau said of Saturday’s events. PPB members have been the focus of over 80 days of violent actions directed at the police, which is a major consideration for determining if police resources are necessary to interject between two groups with individuals who appear to be willingly engaging in physical confrontations for short durations.”

This is an interesting development.

Sooo, what we have here is a type of government sanctioned lawlessness.

Huh.

“Allowing local far-right groups to wreak havoc on the city isn’t a big departure for the PPB. As the ‘Proud Boys’ cheered, officers launched tear gas and other munitions at anti-fascist counter-protesters [Isn’t this a double negative?  Who are we exactly talking about here?] during a rally in 2017, which left one antifa protester with a gas canister lodged in his head.”

Ouch!

No pictures of this, of course.

And what’s this “allowing local far-right groups to wreak havoc on the city” stuff?

It would appear that the “far-right groups” are wreaking havoc on the neo-fascist terrorists, not the city.

“Police gave the ‘Proud Boys’ an escort out of the city following a rally in 2018 that saw the far-right demonstrators outnumbered by anti-fascists. A key officer had a friendly and ongoing relationship with the leader of ‘Proud Boys’ affiliate group ‘Patriot Prayer,’ judging from texts obtained by Willamette Week.”

Willamette who?

Is naming this person supposed to lend some kind of credence to the information?

Just sayin’.

Anyway, “But relinquishing the act of policing to the brawlers themselves is both new and concerning, especially given the context: Local extremists have escalated their violent tactics in recent weeks, brazenly introducing guns and a lot more weaponry to the melee.”

“Local right-wing protester Skylor Jernigan [Here they go naming names again.], who attended a conservative ‘flag wave’ demonstration in Portland earlier this month alongside Swinney, allegedly shot at Black Lives Matter protesters from inside a car. Nobody was hit.”

“He was later arrested and charged with two felony counts of unlawful use of a weapon.”

This definitely seems like a case of “selective enforcement” of the law here.

“During the same event, Swinney was seen spraying protesters with chemical irritants and shooting them with rounds from a paintball gun. He faced no immediate consequence for those displays or for pointing a pistol at protesters this past Saturday.”

Nor should he, based on the prior treatment of “the protesters.”

I feel like it’s time to interject a couple applicable sayings here:

“What’s good for the goose is good for the gander,” for example.

And, “What goes around comes around.”

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.

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!

Meet a real scumbag!

I don’t normally like calling names…, but I’m going to make an exception in this case.

Hey…, if the shoe fits, wear it!

Meet the AFL-CIO (The American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations) president, Richard Trumka.

alabor 2

alabor 1

Trumka routinely lies to his union members, and to everyone else, while performing his duties as an ugly bully, and a shameless puppet for the democrats.

alabor 5

From the AFL-CIO’s own website:

“The American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) works tirelessly to improve the lives of working people.”

“We are the democratic, voluntary federation of 55 national and international labor unions that represent 12.5 million working men and women.”

“We strive to ensure all working people are treated fairly, with decent paychecks and benefits, safe jobs, dignity, and equal opportunities. We help people acquire valuable skills and job-readiness for the 21st century economy.”

“Our work is anchored in making sure everyone who works for a living has family-supporting wages and benefits and the ability to retire with dignity.”

“We advance legislation to create good jobs by investing tax dollars in schools, roads, bridges, ports and airports, and improving the lives of workers through education, job training and a livable minimum wage. We advocate for strengthening Social Security and private pensions, ensuring fair tax policies, and making high-quality, affordable health care available to all.”

“We fight for keeping good jobs at home by reforming trade rules, reindustrializing the U.S. economy and providing worker protections in the global economy. We stand firm in holding corporations accountable for their actions.”

“We help make safe, equitable workplaces and give working people a collective voice to address workplace injustices without the fear of retaliation. We fight for social and economic justice and strive to vanquish oppression in all its forms.”

IF THIS IS TRUE, THEN PLEASE TELL ME HOW IN GOD’S NAME YOUR UNION IS SUPPORTING JOE BIDEN FOR PRESIDENT?!

Again, we hear and see words, words, words.

And, again…, please remember…, in the liberal fascist world, it’s more important to say the right things than to do the right things.

This all sounds good, but again…, IF THIS IS TRUE, THEN PLEASE TELL ME HOW IN GOD’S NAME, YOUR UNION IS SUPPORTING JOE BIDEN FOR PRESIDENT AND NOT PRESIDENT TRUMP?!

In response, first of all, the only thing you “work tirelessly” at is picking the pockets of all of your members.

Secondly, you don’t “fight for keeping good jobs at home by reforming trade rules, reindustrializing the U.S. economy and providing worker protections in the global economy.”  In fact, you supported Obama/Biden and Hillary Clinton, after witnessing their horrible trade deals…, watched them kill U.S. manufacturing…, and experienced an unprecedented exodus of American jobs overseas.

So, AFL-CIO, and Richard Trumka, I’m calling you out for the BS artists you are.

That’s just a nice way of saying you’re a disingenuous, workingman poser, a liar, and a traitor to all of the members you represent.

You and all of the AFL-CIO leadership.

BAM!

alabor 4

Talia Kaplan of FOX Business reports that, “The president [Richard Trumka] of the nation’s labor union [the AFL-CIO] was challenged by FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo on Tuesday over statements he made regarding presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden and job creation.”

alabor 18

“In a heated exchange on ‘Mornings with Maria’ on Tuesday, Richard Trumka, the president of the more than 12.5 million-member AFL-CIO, claimed that Trump ‘lost a lot’ of jobs and Bartiromo pushed back saying before the coronavirus pandemic ‘we had probably the best job situation in a generation.’”

“Trump lost a lot of jobs?!”

alabor 6

Let me just say that it always becomes “a heated exchange” with Trumka, when you don’t allow him to lie, and you call him out on it.”

He’s not used to anyone pushing back on him, and he is ill-equipped, mentally, to deal with it.

“Trumka told Bartiromo that Biden ‘wants to make sure that American jobs stay here.’”

Boy…, you sure couldn’t have guessed that based on Biden’s and Barack’s track record while in The White House.

alabor 11

‘“He’s working with us on that. He has an industrial program to create jobs, an infrastructure program to help create jobs here at home and so we’ll work with him to make sure that happens,’ Trumka said.”

alabor 10

If you say so, Trumka.

‘“Joe’s a working guy. He came out of [the] working class.  He understands us.  He came out of Pennsylvania.  He understands what we’re about.’”

Ha!

“Joe’s a working guy?”

Really?

Ya, he came out of a middle-class family, but Joe ain’t no “working guy.”

He’s a career politician that doesn’t know the first thing about working for a living.

Oh…, and “he came out of Pennsylvania?”

So, what?!

Like coming out of Pennsylvania gives you some special kind of awareness!

Nothing against Pennsylvania, but seriously?

alabor 14

‘“We feel comfortable that he’s going to protect American jobs and work with us on all the different policy issues that need to be taken care of, not just a single policy,’ Trumka said.”

alabor 7

Again…, you sure couldn’t have guessed that based on Biden’s and Barack’s track record while in The White House.

“Bartiromo then said, ‘Let me push back on that because what did Joe Biden do under the administration when he was with President Obama for the unions?’”

“She added that for President Trump, jobs ‘has been his number one issue.’”

“Yeah, but he’s lost a lot,” Trumka responded. “If you look at where he’s at right now, doesn’t matter, you can say it’s about the pandemic, but he’s lost jobs.”

Like I mentioned before…, Trumka is ill-equipped to defend his illogic.

‘“We’ve lost manufacturing jobs, we lost mining jobs, we’ve lost every set of jobs out there,’ he continued. ‘So, what I said is he talks about it, but his policy doesn’t match it to make it happen. That’s what we have to do, line up the words with the policies.’”

Oh, so, now you want to start doing that?

“Bartiromo then said, ‘It actually did happen,’ adding that his statements are ‘not true.’”

You better watch it, Maria!

Trumka has been known to throw a “hissy fit” when he’s called a liar.

‘“It actually did happen before the pandemic. We had probably the best job situation in a generation,’ she continued.”

Oh, there’s no “probably” about it, Maria.

We HAD the best job situation in a generation.

We HAD historic economic numbers all across the board, regarding employment, the stock market, wages, and whatever else you care to mention.

“Bartiromo then brought up the fact that before the pandemic, the jobless rate was 3.5 percent, the lowest rate since 1969.”

‘“So, everything you’re saying is actually missing the mark because right before the coronavirus hit, we actually did have the best economy and jobs market anybody had ever seen. So, I have to push back on that because it’s just simply not true,’ Bartiromo told Trumka.”

That a girl, Maria!

We can all tell you don’t work for CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, The New York Times, or The Washington Post.

‘“Please do,’ Trumka said in response. ‘Let me push back on what you’re saying. The jobs being created weren’t manufacturing jobs, they weren’t mining jobs, they were service jobs that paid lower wages.’”

alabor 13

Liar, liar pants on fire!

alabor 12

I believe you’re remembering back to the Obama/Biden years, Trumka.

‘“Yes, we had jobs, but we need to raise the wages of those jobs that’s why there’s growing inequality in this country,’ he continued.”

‘“Wages were going up,’ Bartiromo noted.”

‘“Every year inequality has gotten worse in this country because wages aren’t going up properly,’ Trumka hit back.”

‘“No, that’s not true,’ Bartiromo said.”

Watch it, Maria! This meathead will swing on you!

‘“It is true,’ Trumka said.”

‘“No, no it’s not,’ Bartiromo said, adding that ‘the statistics are the statistics.’”

‘“Inequality actually began to narrow in the year before the coronavirus,’ she said. ‘We have to call this out. We’ve been talking about this before the coronavirus, this was one of the main issues that we discussed on this program.’”

“Bartiromo went on to tell Trumka that ‘The President’s policies have been all about jobs and economic growth and that was certainly playing out before the coronavirus. There’s no doubt about it.’”

Thank you, Maria, for standing up to this liberal propagandist, for stating the truth, and for not allowing Trumka to peddle his lies.

‘“Before the coronavirus pandemic hit the U.S., Labor Secretary Eugene Scalia told Fox Business that workers’ wages were growing faster than their bosses’, narrowing the income gap, as a result of President Trump’s policies.”

‘“At the end of the Obama administration, what we saw is wage growth for the high wage earners [and] slow wage growth for the low wage earners,’ Scalia told Bartiromo in an exclusive interview at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland in January. ‘We’ve flipped that in this economy.’”

Richard Trumka has been the president of the AFL-CIO for over a decade now.

alabor 3

I contend that he doesn’t even come close to representing the vast majority of his union members anymore.

alabor 16

In the 2016 presidential election, the AFL-CIO backed Hillary Clinton…, and we all know how that turned out.

According to Amanda Becker for Reuters News service, regarding the election back in 2016, “The initial ads will be… featuring an image of Trump with a statement he made supporting ‘right-to-work’ laws, which weaken organized labor by limiting their ability to collect membership dues. Several states have passed such laws, and the U.S. Congress has considered a similar measure.”

‘“I like right to work. My position on right to work is 100 percent,’ Trump said in a radio interview in South Carolina.”

“The text campaign on which the ads will be modeled featured a quote from Trumka, hitting Trump on right-to-work, and characterizing him as racist: ‘Donald Trump’s bigoted comments are bad enough. Now, he supports right to work. Tell him right to work is wrong for working people.’”

“But Trumka, a former coal miner and leader of that union, has made clear he believes Trump in particular would be a disastrous candidate for workers.’”

When you listen to Trumka talk, or read his words, you have to remember to translate what he’s saying.

When he says, “Trump in particular would be a disastrous candidate for workers.”

You have to replace the word “workers” with the words, “me and my liberal, union, flunkies.”

And when he, Trumka, says, “Now, he [Trump] supports right to work. Tell him right to work is wrong for working people.”

You have to replace the words “working people” with the words, “me and my liberal, union, flunkies.”

Here endeth the lesson.

LET’S KEEP AMERICA GREAT!

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.

“This virus can survive on surfaces for up to 6 hours the scientists declared!”

abs 12

Then, later, they said, “Well, the virus really doesn’t live long on surfaces or gets transferred that way as a rule.”

Then we have the whole mask thing.  For months, scientists said wearing a mask was required…, then they said the benefits from wearing a mask were debatable.

abs 20

But now we hear Science’s piece de resistance.

Now we get Science’s great big “oooops.”

Drumroll, please…

“The asymptomatic spread of coronavirus is ‘very rare,’ The World Health Organization (WHO) says.”

WAIT…, WHAT?!

amasks 6

OH, NO, those words just didn’t come out of some WHO doctor/expert/scientist’s filthy mouth!

abs 19

William Feuer and Noah Higgins-Dunn of CNBC report that, “Preliminary evidence from the earliest outbreaks indicated the virus could spread even if people didn’t have symptoms.”

“But the WHO says that while asymptomatic spread can occur, it is ‘very rare.’”

abs 24

So, let me get this straight.

We shut down our economy, we lost 40 million jobs, we spent trillions and trillions of dollars, we imprisoned ourselves for months, we were kept from contact with loved ones in the hospital, we were kept from contact with our loved ones when they died, we were not allowed to gather for weddings, funerals, graduations…, because of something that occurs “very rarely?”

abs 16

abs 2

I mean, people were viewed as potential murderers for daring to walk around without a mask…, all because people were misled by the “scientists/doctors/experts.”

abs 25

Like I said…, I hate to say “I told you so,” but I told you so.

abs 15

If you refer to my prior blogs about the virus, you’ll see I was skeptical about the Armageddon-like media hype and propaganda from the very beginning.

abs 16

Following common sense is always preferred to following “science.”

We see proof of this again, and again, and again.

I hate to blow my own horn, but I knew this day would come and that I would be able to call out the liberals and their scientists/doctors/experts for what they really are…, SCAM ARTISTS and LIBERAL TOOLS.

Please note that global warming/climate change crowd has their own collection of scientists/doctors/experts who really are SCAM ARTISTS and LIBERAL TOOLS, as well.  Just thought I’d throw that in there.

abs 21

OK…, back to the virus!

‘“Coronavirus patients without symptoms aren’t driving the spread of the virus,’ World Health Organization officials said Monday, casting doubt on concerns by some researchers that the disease could be difficult to contain due to asymptomatic infections.”

‘“From the data we have, it still seems to be rare that an asymptomatic person actually transmits onward to a secondary individual,’ Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, head of WHO’s emerging diseases and zoonosis unit, said at a news briefing from the United Nations agency’s Geneva headquarters. ‘It’s very rare.’”

abs 8

Well, thank you Dr. Van Kerkhove…, thank you very much.

And what the hell is “zoonosis,” anyway?

I’ve never heard of this before, so I looked it up.  It turns out “zoonosis” deals with “diseases which can be transmitted between humans and animals.”

Anyway…, ‘“What we really want to be focused on is following the symptomatic cases,’ Van Kerkhove said. ‘If we actually followed all of the symptomatic cases, isolated those cases, followed the contacts and quarantined those contacts, we would drastically reduce’ the outbreak.”

So, governments and people should be treating this disease just like we treat every other disease, huh?

Hmmm, that’s odd.

abs 11

“More research and data are needed to ‘truly answer’ the question of whether the coronavirus can spread widely through asymptomatic carriers,’ Van Kerkhove added.”

Ah, yes!

The old cry of the scientists/doctors/experts that “more research and data are needed!”

Again…, that’s odd!

Because we all know, there can NEVER be enough research and there can NEVER be enough data.

“If asymptomatic spread proves to not be a main driver of coronavirus transmission, the policy implications could be tremendous.”

REEEEEEEAAAAAALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

abs 18

And like I said before, could these “implications” include:

Shutting down our economy?

Losing 40 million jobs?

Spending trillions and trillions of dollars we don’t have?

Imprisoning ourselves for months?

Being kept from contact with loved ones in the hospital?

Being kept from contact with our loved ones when they died?

Being not allowed to gather for weddings, funerals, and graduations?

All because of something that occurs “very rarely?”

abs 14

Somebody please give William Feuer and Noah Higgins-Dunn the coronavirus booby prize of the month!

“Tell ‘em what they’ve won, Chuck!”

“Well, Mr. Erickson…, William Feuer and Noah Higgins-Dunn have won an all-expenses-paid trip to Wuhan, China…, the birthplace of the virus!

abs 10

“That’s exciting, Chuck!  Maybe we could afford to send some of our liberal mayors and blue state governors along with them…, you know, as like a consolation prize?! And we could send a fake news media entourage along as well to cover the whole thing!

Aren’t I just loaded with good ideas?!

Please help me promote myself, Mr. Erickson, as a potential senior advisor in President Trump’s next administration…, so I can help President Trump make America great again!
