News Vets Ted Koppel, Lara Logan Are Latest To Call Out “Resistance” Media

Never in our lifetimes have we seen all pretext of media objectivity or desire to report objective truth get tossed out the window as we have seen with the elite media today, including censorship of Republicans by YouTube, Twitter and Facebook.

Recently retired ABC News Anchor Ted Koppel, who is a liberal himself, called out journalists who associate themselves with “The Resistance”; Eric Trump also comments:

Brit Hume, who worked for Ted Koppel for many years, comments:

Legendary CBS News war correspondent Lara Logan had this to say during an extended interview with retired Navy Seal Mike Ritland:

Visually, anyone who’s ever been to Israel and been to the Wailing Wall has seen that the women have this tiny little spot in front of the wall to pray, and the rest of the wall is for the men. To me, that’s a great representation of the American media, is that in this tiny little corner where the women pray you’ve got Breitbart and Fox News and a few others, and from there on, you have CBS, ABC, NBC, Huffington Post, Politico, whatever, right? All of them. And that’s a problem for me, because even if it was reversed, if it was vastly mostly on the right, that would also be a problem for me.

So creating one ideological position on everything throughout your universities, throughout academia, in school and college, in media, and everywhere else, that’s what concerns me. I don’t have to agree with everybody.

This is the problem that I have. There’s one Fox, and there’s many, many, many more organizations on the left. … The problem is the weight of all these organizations on one side of the political spectrum. When you turn on your computer, or you walk past the TV, or you see a newspaper headline in the grocery store If they’re all saying the same thing, the weight of that convinces you that it’s true. You don’t question it, because everyone is saying it. Unless you seek out Breitbart on your computer, you’re probably not even going to know what the other side is saying.

A Harvard study reveals that during President Trump’s first 100 days the networks had given him 98% negative coverage. A year later a Media Research Center showed that the network news coverage had remained 91% negative, with 63% of coverage relating to scandals, mostly the phony Russian collusion hoax which has 65% of Democrats believing that Russia hacked the election.

In the mean time CNN is blaming Donald Trump for a shooting in New Zealand carried out by a self described “Eco-Fascist” who clearly hates Trump and conservatives according to his “manifesto” (Original no longer available. Archive available here.) (2)

[EDITOR’S NOTE – There seems to be a coordinated effort to prevent people from reading the shooter’s rather nutty manifesto for themselves. Whole WordPress blogs, google references, and sites on various web hosters who have posted it have vanished. The elite media has been spinning to full out lying about the contents of said manifesto in order to attack President Trump. Fortunately there are web archive sites, like the one linked to above, that are dedicated to preserving web pages, in order to prevent just this type of censorship.]

What is most ironic is that the New Zealand shooter and President Trump have used the word “Invader” to describe people coming from the Middle East with intentions that are less than pure, and that is CNN’s tie-in that they keep bloviating about. However the shooter’s manifesto is filled with left wing rhetoric about anti-capitalism, socialism, workers (government) being put in charge of the means of production, etc. and has everything in common with Bernie Sanders, Hugo Chavez, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and nothing in common with Donald Trump.

In other news, Jemele Hill, former ESPN “Sports-Center” co-host and writer for The Atlantic tweeted a reference to assassinating the President. The elite media is hoping that you won’t notice that Democrat freshmen members of Congress are making grotesque antisemitic statements. Democrats have voted 19 times against protecting babies that are BORN ALIVE – MUM is the word on that.

Also, while the Russian Collusion hoax continues to go nowhere, corruption by the same bad actors in the FBI and DOJ who let Hillary off the hook have now admitted that they made a special deal with Hillary’s lawyers to make certain that the DOJ and FBI would never see much of the key evidence proving her multiple violations of the Espionage Act. Well, at least Fox News is reporting it.

Big tech is also working to actively sensor Republicans while engaging in wild double standards. Google Inc, who owns YouTube, has been censoring and demonetizing videos by Republicans and conservatives including the incredibly benign Prager University:

Recently leaked emails reveal the toxic political culture at Google. Leaked documents and whistle blowers at Facebook have revealed a systematic campaign of censoring and “deboosting” content from conservatives. The documents show that Facebook intends to influence the outcome of elections. Facebook said under oath in testimony to Congress that this wasn’t happening, but the evidence speaks otherwise.

Twitter has been banning and suspending conservatives for no reason, while often quoting or critiquing the antisemitic comments of certain Democrat Members of Congress. At the same time Twitter allows death threats and every sort of slime and filth thrown at conservatives and other non leftists. Left wing blue check marked accounts on Twitter call Jews like Ben Shapiro and Dave Rubin “Nazi scum“ and all sorts of vile names that easily break terms of service, yet Twitter does nothing.

House Intelligence Committee member Devin Nunes is suing Twitter for the constant assault and smear campaign being waged against him. Twitter does not allow fake accounts, yet fake accounts claiming to be Nunes’ father, mother, friends, pets etc post vile lies, smears and personal attacks against him all day long. Twitter even goes so far as to promote these fake accounts as “accounts to follow” and still is at the time of this writing:

This week Reuters News admitted that for two years it sat on a story about former Texas Senate Candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, you know that Irish guy, who pretends to be Latino, who was a member of a hacker group. Another part of his past criminal activities that are just coming to light.

At the time of this writing Judicial Watch has just received another 756 pages of Hillary Clinton’s emails with classified information that have been recovered from her illegal private email server, from which she did official government activities, as well as other activities, to avoid public records requests. These are emails that the State Department, FBI and, DOJ have been fighting in court to prevent being revealed. President Trump still faces massive bureaucratic and legal resistance from the “Deep State” bureaucrats.

For those of you who need a stem to stern refresher on the convergence of Fake News, Democrats and corrupt officials in the FBI, CIA and DOJ; Tucker Carslon does it as well as anyone. Watch and learn:

One thing that politicians are in no short supply of these days is the chutzpah to engage in acts of breathtaking hypocrisy; such as Hillary Clinton blasting President Trump for using presidential emergency power for pure politics and then following up with a list of political goals of her own for which she would use emergency powers.

Note:

1 – Federal gun prosecutions were at record lows during Hillary’s time in the Obama Administration.

2 – The courts mandate that children be separated from their families if their adult parents committed crimes and had to face more than 20 days in jails. Why? Because the courts did not want children in adult prisons. Wait! Did Hillary just admit that there is an emergency at the border?

3 – Climate Change? We have had six known ice ages and warmed out of all six. So what.

4 – Shall we post yet another piece on the millions and millions who lost their health insurance and good care because of ObamaCare?

And while Democrats are having a collective cow over President Trump willing to actually use border funds at the border, keep in mind that they were fine with President Obama yanking the Iran treaty from the Senate because he couldn’t get the votes, renaming it the “Iran Deal” and just doing it anyway giving Iran billions in cash and releasing previously frozen assets.

President Obama changed immigration enforcement by ignoring the law and doing what he wanted, including giving benefits to illegals as well as extra IRS EITC refunds for illegals (2) who have children in Mexico.

Acting unilaterally outside of the law is fine, so long as you’re a Democrat.

Fortunately President Trump is well covered by the law in this case. The National Emergencies Act of 1976 is enabling legislation that allows the President to quickly transfer funds to handle emergencies. This power has been used for legitimate and highly questionable reasons by previous presidents such as promoting Democracy in the Balkans, Zimbabwe, Liberia, Yemen, Nicaragua, Burundi and Syria.

A full list of “National Emergencies” can be found here at AJC, as well as CNN, and Wikipedia.

Democrats insist that while promoting democracy in Burundi is a legitimate national emergency, the chaos at our borders they say is not. They are lying and damn well know it.

To start with dozens of dead bodies, with many of them children, are found along the border every month (2) (3)

Immigrant deaths near border 1998-2017

Immigrant deaths near the southwest border in the U.S.
from 1998-2017

The above statistic represents the total number of immigrant deaths reported by the United States Border Patrol near the southwest border from FY 1998 to 2017. The U.S. Border Patrol recorded 294 immigrant deaths near the southwest border in FY 2017, down from 329 in the preceding fiscal year.

So while kids being kept out of adult jails is a crisis to Democrats (NOTE: the whole child separation thing Democrats won’t stop going on about is in reality a 1997 court ruling that says the children of illegal border crossers cannot be held in adult jails with their parents if they commit crimes (1) (2)), children dying on the journey is a non issue. They are just little brown babies, so of course Democrats don’t care about them.

Since 2011 over 279,000 criminal illegal aliens have been booked into jails in Texas alone. Drugs and sex slaves coming over the border are difficult to measure because you don’t know what you don’t catch.

Infectious diseases that were once thought eradicated in the United States have been making a comeback due to mass illegal immigration (1) (2) (3) (4)

Article 4, Section 4 of the United States Constitution says, “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and ….. domestic violence.”

Democrat luminaries, such as former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson and even President Obama’s DHS Secretary, former Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano both declared emergencies in their own states because the Federal Government has been allowing chaos at the border.

Presidents and Governors have these powers because an executive needs them in order to govern effectively, nonetheless some wacky liberal political appointed judge in the 9th Circuit will take it upon his unelected self to assume presidential powers under Article II of the Constitution for himself and attempt to declare that there is no emergency, for which of course he/she will be overturned by the Supreme Court.

Senator Lindsey Graham has stated that Trump should have just declared an emergency over the border chaos some time ago.

Of course, Democrats know all of this and are opposing Trump for no other reason than to oppose him. After all, they themselves have stated all that Trump says about the border, many times before Trump got elected:

Democrats on illegal Immigration Before and after Trump

Democrats would rather the country suffer than see Trump win on any issue. Such is the nature of Trump derangement syndrome (TDS).

Speaking of TDS, I will conclude with this interview of White House Policy Advisor Stephen Miller by Chris Wallace who tries desperately to wrap Miller up in bogus narratives and talking points Miller just wasn’t having it. I encourage everyone to watch this video and listen carefully:

The Anti-Trumper Phony Freak Outs…

They think of themselves as the educated elite, so much smarter than the rabble between the coasts and they have been wrong about most everything since 2016.

Just to reminisce, here is a small example of the NeverTrump election meltdown:

While some of the NeverTrump crowd are finally coming around, others are using their voice in the media to inspire violence.


Many Republican NeverTrumpers have largely pulled back from their completely false dire predictions of doom and gloom for the courts, the country and the economy, others, with their new found allies in leftist elite media, have continued to spiral down a crazed rabbit hole of outrageous cynicism.

ABC News, like their friends in the Democratic Party, blasted Donald Trump’s Supreme Court pick as “controversial” among other less flattering terms, before the announcement was even made!

ABC News Trump Scotus

The lies and smears of Judge Kavanaugh continued:

While the NeverTrump crowd would have you believe that Kavanaugh sits just to the right of Attila The Hun, the record shows Judge Kavanaugh to be a center-right legal mind who is slightly more conservative than Justice Kennedy who he is replacing. Kavanaugh once clerked for Justice Kennedy.

The next NeverTrump meltdown happened at the NATO summit where Trump called out European countries for failing to pay their fair share of NATO expenses and for allowing Russia to gain a strategic advantage on energy production in Europe. An “attack on NATO” they called it.

In the name of political correctness Germany and other European allies have been shutting down their coal, oil, and nuclear energy production. To compensate they have been buying energy from Russia, thus empowering Russia strategically and financially while asking the United States to pay to defend them from Russia. Such behavior is inappropriate and undermines NATO’s mission. How is standing up for the strategic interests of NATO an attack on NATO?

NATO countries, in violation of treaty, are not paying their fair share. How is it that demanding that member countries actually obey the treaty an attack on NATO?

When word got out that Trump is absolutely right about this, protests from the NeverTrump crowd got quiet rather quickly. NATO countries have now agreed to pay more. Thank you President Trump.

However, NeverTrumper’s ever so eager to pounce with an “I told you so” opportunity, thought they had their moment when Trump didn’t publicly blast Vladimir Putin on the latest round of Mueller/Rosenstein indictments against the Russians for interfering with our election by allegedly hacking the Democrats. The usual suspects had a meltdown:


So intense was the meltdown that even Brit Hume and Chris Wallace, among others, fell into their bogus narrative.

There was a reason that the Special Prosecutor Mueller/Rosenstein released these new “indictments” just before Trump was to meet with Putin. The hype was high and the time to actually analyze the facts was short.

Lets examine the record of which President Trump is very aware.

In February Mueller/Rosenstien released indictments of Russians and Russian companies, accusing them of interfering in our elections. What they didn’t expect is that some of them hired American lawyers and have demanded their day in court. Mueller/Rosenstein, knowing that we do not have extradition with Russia, hoped that said accused Russians would just ignore the indictments so he could have his field day with the press to enhance is fading credibility in the polls.

Special Counsel Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein have told the court that they do not intend to cooperate with discovery requests from the lawyers for the accused Russians, thus virtually guaranteeing that the judge with throw the “indictments” out.

While we do not have an extradition treaty with Russia, we do have a criminal cooperation treaty that has been in effect since 1999. Mueller/Rosenstein did not even attempt to request assistance from the Russian government to question those they accused in their “indictments”. It is clear that Mueller/Rosenstein had no intention of defending the integrity of their indictments and the most obvious reason is that said indictments have none.

The Mueller/Rosenstein indictment of Paul Manafort isn’t going much better with Judge Ellis blasting the special prosecutor’s behavior in the case.

Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein, who is acting Attorney General since AG Sessions has recused himself, is already in hot water as he faces Contempt of Congress and possible impeachment for his illegal refusal to cooperate with the appropriate oversight committees of Congress. Congressional subpoenas for documents and other information have largely gone ignored by Rosenstein.

Rosenstein, and his other allies such as FBI lead investigator Peter Strzok demonstrated themselves to be rather poor liars in their testimony before Congress. I encourage readers to take the time and watch the video of their testimony so the full weight of just how sleazy they are can be experienced first hand.

Rosenstein, as well as others such as Agent Strzok, are rife with conflicts of interest that DoJ regulations do not allow. Here is an example:

The FBI Ethics Section recommends that FBI Director Jim Comey be fired for lying about his official duties. Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein fires Comey based on said recommendation (mostly because he was bungling and wouldn’t shut up), which is not obstruction of justice according to the Democrats and elite media.

Democrats and then James Comey himself claim that Comey’s firing means that President Trump is obstructing justice, so Rosenstein then appoints James Comey’s best friend, Robert Mueller, to be special prosecutor to investigate if Trump obstructed justice and if Trump was conspiring with Russians to change the election. Mueller then hired Peter Strzok, a NeverTrumper who told his mistress in writing that he would get Trump impeached even before he interviewed a single witness.

You read that correctly.

This is the same Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein who signed off on the phony documents and application lying to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court(FISA) in order to get warrants to spy on the Trump campaign and create the phony Trump/Russian collusion allegations to begin with.

The latest round of indictments from Mueller/Rosenstien are a farce, and not simply because of their timing. The indictments do not name any victims specifically, just groups of people affected, such as the Democratic National Committee (DNC). Not naming them was no accident. Why? Because those indicted have the right to face their accuser and have a right to cross examination of all evidence and alleged victims. By refusing to name victims it virtually guarantees that said indictments cannot be challenged in court.

These rather obvious phony indictments accuse Russians of hacking the DNC, the same DNC which refused to allow the FBI to examine their servers to look for evidence of hacking.

This column lists but a residue of the chicanery that has been going on since our government agencies have been turned into partisan weapons by previous administrations. Would YOU believe anything that came from this crowd?

While there is no doubt that Russia, China, Israel, Saudi Arabia, India and countless other countries engage in influence operations here in the United States and we in turn do it right back, the point is that the attempt to frame and impeach President Trump by elements of the Deep State has failed and their illegal activities are, little by little, becoming known. No one, President Trump included, should allow this criminal crowd to come up with something phony to save face by waving clearly bogus indictments that say “Russia” for a headline.

Never Trumper Bill Kristol described Trump’s “performance” at the Helsinki summit as “contemptable.” Permit me to display just a little well deserved incivility towards idiots like Kristol and his talking head friends at CNN who are slinging the word Treason around simply because Trump refused to blast Putin publicly.

Morons like Kristol need to be asked directly – does one travel all the way to Helsinki to put on a “performance”? Does one have to travel all the way to Helsinki simply to insult someone? What Trump was working with Putin on is securing Russian help with the Iran/Syria problem and the North Korean nuclear deal. These are the two big hot spots in the world right now. North Korea wants defense and security guarantees from Russia, China, and the United States in exchange for dismantling their nuclear program and other perks such as sending home the remains of American soldiers in North Korea. The United States and Israel are also working with Putin to reduce Iran’s jihadist influence in war torn Syria. How likely is Trump to get that cooperation if he fly’s to Helsinki just to trash him in front of the cameras?

Perhaps someone should ask Bill Kristol and CNN why they are actively helping Iranian Mullah’s and North Korea’s nuclear program with their idiocy?

Trump handled the Putin Presser quite correctly, so says NYU Professor of Russian Studies Stephen F. Cohen. Cohen calls the media reaction “mob violence” and “a kangaroo court.” Prof. Cohen makes it clear that it is every president’s duty to walk back potential conflict so as to avoid any potential for nuclear war. President Obama said the samewhen he explained why publicly shaming Putin is wrong headed – where was the outrage and claims of treason against Obama? Prof. Stephen Cohen:

Hillary Clinton went so far to say, “Honestly, we don’t see Russia as a threat, we believe those days are behind us” – video. No outrage from the chattering class there.

CNN and their friends in the Washington Press Corps, have people so worked up in a frenzy with their lies and crazed, over the top exaggerations, that one man brought a gun to a baseball diamond in order to kill Republicans, nearly taking Congressman Steve Scalise’s life and therapists are receiving patients who have what they call “Trump Anxiety Disorder,” believing that the world is coming to an end from what they read in the New York Times, Washington Post and see on CNN.

Setting hype and incivility aside, the facts are the President Trump has been tougher on Putin than previous administrations. Former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, whose country was invaded by Russia, is a credible non-partisan authority this issue. President Saakashvili’s perspective shows just how hollow, hypocritical and phony the chattering class truly is.

The economy is talking off with a new GDP report of 4.1% economic growth which is better than Obama ever saw. Unemployment is nearing record lows and the trade deficit has dropped by $52 billion this quarter. NeverTrumper claims of doom and gloom for the economy have fallen flat on their face. Now it’s official. They have been wrong about everything:
