More CNN Fake News?

The CIA of all places is now entering the fray of Fake News. Apparently, CNN’s “national security correspondent” put a story out that said the CIA pulled a CIA asset out of Russia back in 2017 because they were afraid that Donald Trump was going to blow his cover and cost the person their life.

Later that same day, the New York Times, not exactly friends with the Trump administration blasted the original CNN news story with their own research that said the CIA pulled the spy on their own accord.

This is only the latest in a very long list of made up stories designed to put Donald Trump in a less than positive light. There have been a lot of such stories over the past three years, and it’s all because the uber-leftist media can’t stand the fact that a neophyte politician could waltz his way into the highest elected office in the land.

Well, it’s that and a bunch of other reasons, but that one will do for now. Here’s the problem. These media outlets are protected by the First Amendment under “Freedom of the Press”. That’s a very important part of the First Amendment because if you have a press that is controlled by the government, such as in Russia or Cuba, or China, you are going to have a media spewing propaganda to the masses without any regard to the truth. That is why the Founding Fathers decided to put that in the Constitution in the first place. When you control information, you control the people.

However, I’m sure the Fathers never felt that the media would become one-sided and politically motivated. I’m pretty sure they felt a free and open media would be able to discern right from wrong and would be on the side of truth, whereas if the government were to control the media, it would most assuredly fall into a propaganda mode.

Well, it’s fallen into the propaganda mode. How many times have places like CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, The New York Time, The Washington Post, and a myriad of other newspapers and magazines published and aired stories that are false. They didn’t do it because of sloppy reporting, or because they didn’t check their facts. They did it because they wanted to make someone look bad. That has been going on for years… long before Donald Trump ever thought of running for president.

I come from Toledo, Ohio, and the local newspaper there is owned by a couple of brothers that have vendettas as long as your arm. They come after people just to shape the community the way they want. They don’t tell the truth in the paper necessarily, they spin it. And they’ve got a lot of lawyers that will spend eternity defending the paper against the tons of lawsuits filed against them every year. I know, because the radio station I worked for was embroiled in one such lawsuit that dragged on for years. That is not the “responsible journalism” that our Founding Fathers thought of. That is yellow journalism at it’s worst.

What Congress needs to do is make it a federal crime to publish untrue stories. If the story can be proven that it’s untrue or false, then the person that is responsible for that needs to be held accountable. They need to be jailed for a long enough period of time that they won’t be able to find a job in their field again. And the organization that published it should be made to pay a fine large enough to really hurt them so they learn a lesson. I’m not saying that we need to censor journalism…just to make it truthful, as it was originally intended. It’s the first step to cleaning up the mess that’s been created by the left.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

The All Star Liar’s List

OK, I’ve debated writing this blog for a while. It’s simply because I don’t like calling people liars…but THIS site is dedicated to telling the truth. And the fact of the matter is, when someone lies, and they are in the public eye, and they are trying to shovel the truth under the rug for political purposes, I really need to throw the BS flag and call them on it. Hence today’s list of All Star Liar’s dealing with the Russian Collusion case. And by the way…thanks to Fox News and Marc Thiessen for the info for this blog!

HARRY REID: Yup, the former Majority Leader in the Senate, who is now in retirement right up the road from me in Searchlight, Nevada is one of the biggest liars the Senate has seen in it’s history. His lies are legendary. From telling the world from the well of the Senate that Mitt Romney hadn’t paid income taxes in over a decade to the latest crap he pulled regarding the Russian collusion story and the 2016 election. He sent then-FBI Director, James Comey a letter in which he said, “In my communications with you and other top officials in the national security community, it has become very clear that you possess explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors, and the Russian government.”

ADAM SCHIFF: I have blogged about this lying sack of poo before. Two years ago, Schiff was on NBC’s Meet The Press and said, “I can’t go into the particulars, but there is more than circumstantial evidence now.” And we are still waiting to see it.

ERIC SWALWELL: The Democrat presidential candidate from California, and member of Schiff’s House Intelligence Committee has said, “In our investigation, we saw strong evidence of collusion”. He went on to question Donald Trump’s loyalty to this country, all but calling him a Russian spy. Sorry Eric. And you want to be my president?

RON WYDEN: The Senator from Oregon is a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee said, “There is no longer a question of whether this campaign sought to collude with a hostil foreign power to subvert America’s democracy”.

MARK WARNER: The Democrat Senator from Virginia commented that “there’s no one that could factually say that there’s not plenty of evidence of collaboration or communications between the Trump Organization and the Russians”.

JOHN BRENNAN: Marc Thiessen correctly hit the nail on the head saying the John Brennan is the absolute worst scum of all in this. Brennan was a former CIA director, and as such had all sorts of access to top level information. He’s the idiot that called Trump’s actions “treasonous”. The only thing treasonous here is John Brennan’s comments. He should be strung up from the highest yardarm for that one! After it came out that he was about as flaming ass wrong about his comments, Brennan awkwardly tried to walk it back saying, “I don’t know if I received bad information, but I think I suspected there was more than there actually was.” John…it’s called being overly political in an area you should have kept your big mouth shut. Now, you should have to pay the price.

I’d say that an apt price for all of these people are they can never work in politics of any kind again…no governmental work what-so-ever. I’d say they should give up all pensions, all retirement earned in those positions they held or hold, and never be given a position where politics enters into the picture ever again. On top of that, each of them should be fined $10,000,000 and the money given directly to charities designated to Donald Trump…or better yet, to Republican campaign of Donald Trump’s choosing. You want fair? You believe the truth hurts? I’m sorry, but just apologizing or saying you had bad information for two years isn’t going to cut it this time around. These people need to be hurt, and hurt bad. Anything less is just a total abuse of their power.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
