The New York Times recycled from March Wednesday (5/17) a false story intended to inflame Trump/Russia hysteria.
“Trump Team Knew Flynn Was Under Investigation Before He Came to the White House,” the headline said.
“In a letter dated Nov. 30, the Justice Department notified Mr. Flynn that it was scrutinizing his lobbying work,” the Times said.
Flynn was appointed National Security Adviser Nov. 17. How, might one ask, does Nov. 30 come before Nov. 17?
To see how low the “mainstream” media have sunk, let’s unpack the New York Times story from the day before (5/16) that may have led to the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel.
“President Trump asked (FBI Director James Comey) to shut down the federal investigation into Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser… according to a memo Mr. Comey wrote shortly after the meeting,” wrote reporter Michael Schmidt.
Schmidt never saw the memo. As you can see in the video clip above, MSNBC’s Brian Williams asks Schmidt, “Why is it that the (New York) Times has the story but not the memo?” Schmidt’s answer: "Someone that had seen them recounted details to me..."
Yep, the motto of the illustrious New York Times is now “All the news that’s fit to fake.” So here’s a suggestion of what to do about it.
Here’s an example from the 1950s: Screenwriter A is a Communist. Screenwriter B is a friend of Screenwriter A. Therefore, Screenwriter B is a Communist too.
There were Communists in the State Department, Sen. Joseph McCarthy charged, changing the number from speech to speech. He offered no evidence to support his innuendo.
The great irony, of course, is that in McCarthy’s day, the State Department was riddled with traitors – just like today. Yet McCarthy was destroyed politically for his evidence-free accusations.
McCarthyites were thus laughed at for seeing Commies under their beds. Democrats are modern-day McCarthyites who see Russians under their’s. The great irony here is that while, however incompetently, McCarthyites of the 50s were trying to expose treason, Democrat McCarthyites of today are committing it..
According to press reports, National Security Advisor to President Trump, H. R. McMaster, has appointed USAF Col. Kris A. Bauman to be the Israel Advisor to the National Security Council.
Why would Lt. Gen. McMaster appoint someone with a long history of support and sympathy for the terrorists of Hamas to advise him on Israel?
When he worked for Obama (2013-2014), he was well-known for believing that the “Israel Lobby” is a threat, that Israel should be pressured into making concessions to Islamic terrorists, and writing that “the Obama Administration must find creative (but legal) ways to include Hamas in a solution.”
Kris Bauman replaces Yael Lempert, one of the Obama holdovers that conservatives had fought to pry out of the swamp. Lempert was known as "Obama’s point person in the White House orchestrating his war against Israel.”
It’s like Yael Lempert never left. Once McMaster took over as National Security Adviser, the swamp was back.
The Global Wind Energy Council recently released its latest report, excitedly boasting that ‘the proliferation of wind energy into the global power market continues at a furious pace, after it was revealed that more than 54 gigawatts of clean renewable wind power was installed across the global market last year’.
You may have the impression from announcements like that, and from the obligatory pictures of wind turbines in any New York Times story, that wind power is making a big contribution to world energy today.
You would be wrong. Its contribution is still, after decades — nay centuries — of development, trivial to the point of irrelevance. Even after 30 years of huge subsidies, wind power provides only slightly more than zero energy to the world.
Even put together, wind and photovoltaic solar are supplying less than 1 per cent of global energy demand. Here are the facts and data – and they are just the start of what a complete Greenie Scam wind power is.
China’s authorities are increasingly worried by stress in the country’s financial system and the sudden slowdown in economic growth, fearing that it may now be too dangerous to press ahead with their draconian crack-down on shadow banking.
The People’s Bank (PBOC) began signaling late last week that it would soften its assault on the credit markets, shifting instead to pro-growth policies and efforts to prevent a liquidity shock before the Communist Party’s 19th Congress in November.
Then on Sunday (5/15), Premier Li Keqiang told the International Monetary Fund that regulatory overkill would be a mistake at this delicate juncture. The state media says “financial stability” is now deemed a greater priority than efforts to control debt.
“They are spooked. They know that shadow banking is running amok but they are not really willing to follow through and take the leverage out of the system,” says George Magnus from the China Centre at Oxford University. “This is their Achilles Heel. It is very similar to what happened in the West in 2005 to 2006.”
Despite the attempts to unify Europe into an economic and partial political whole over the past 70 years, the grand experiment is unraveling, and it increasingly looks like the Humpty Dumpty we call Europe cannot be put back together again.
Parts of Europe are enjoying unparalleled freedom and prosperity, but other parts are sinking both economically and politically. What explains the growing divergence?
The table above is a partial snapshot of the divergence problem. The different outcomes can be almost fully explained by corruption or the absence thereof, and the degree of economic freedom.
Here is a modest solution for how poor countries can improve themselves – put up their sovereignty as collateral to countries run better.
If you enter “Democrat hypocrisy Comey” into the YouTube search box, you’ll get dozens of compilations like this. If you Google those same three words, you’ll get over 800,000 hits.
I hope you’re having as much fun as the HFR is watching Democrats and their Fake News Media echo chamber in total purple-faced apoplexy over Trump firing Mr. “You’re stuck with me for the next six years” Comey.
Truth is not only stranger than fiction, it’s also funnier – utterly hilarious. So let’s all enjoy the Dumbocrat meltdown – and then ask, just what is causing it. There are at least three causes…
Trump’s courage and leadership seems to be providing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell with some backbone… The White House made two good Drain the Swamp moves this week… Speaking of Draining the Swamp -- it’s almost impossible to say how stupidly corrupt this Fake News from the Right is… The Global bad news: the world suddenly got worse this week.
And there’s the inspiring Heroes of the Week. Here we go!
There are, in fact, four such hidden countries in Europe – states with their own governments exercising sovereign control over the area within their borders, yet whose existence is ignored and unrecognized by the UN and almost every other country in the world.
Each of the Countries That Don’t Exist are uniquely fascinating – with their own history, culture, beauty, and charm. All are mysterious and unknown to the outside world.
The number of Americans who have ever heard of these countries is tiny – the number who have actually been to any one of them far tinier. Almost no one, American or anyone else, has been to all four. Would you like to come with me to all four at once? You’ll be astounded by what you’ll see, experience and learn if you do.
The Democrats have ended their unity tour more divided than ever. Unlike Republican quarrels, their war is mostly ignored by the media. And yet it will define what the Left and its plan to take over the country will look like. The Clintons are history. Barack Obama and Bernie Sanders are the leaders of the two sides in the Dem civil war. The shots are already being fired. As usual, they are coming from the insurgent Sandernistas.
Bernie embodies the Old Left. Its mantra is class warfare. There is a great deal of talk about billionaires, working people and the ruling class.
Obama pays lip service to that same rhetoric, but his is the program of the Intersectional Left. The Intersectional Left is far more interested in identity than class. It defines its organization around a coalition of racial, sexual and other minorities.
Where Bernie wants to talk to the working class, the Intersectional left wants to hear from transgender Muslim women of color. The differences aren’t just intellectual. They define the tactics and agenda of the Democrats. The Old Left wants to ‘overthrow’ the middle class and the rich. The Intersectional Left wants to ‘overthrow’ white people and heterosexuals.
That is the Bernie and Obama split in a nutshell: Obama will take money from Wall Street to fight white men. Bernie wants white men to fight Wall Street.
