CNN is often ridiculed by American Conservatives with various names for the acronym:

 

  • Communist News Network

 

  • Fake News Network

 

  • Clinton News Network

 

This just names the few I can think of off the top of my head.

 

I understand that it was a teenager that came up with the 20-second or so video of President Trump putting a wrestling move on CNN (originally Vince McMahon of WWE) body slamming the network beneath the wrestling ring. The tweet video went viral and got under CNN nerves so much they blasted President Trump for showing it and sent their cadres of crack investigators to hunt down the kid who created the post on Reddit.

 

CNN found the teenager and undoubtedly shared the network displeasure with the video. The frightened teenager (HanAssholeSolo) then delivered a full-throated apology which CNN promptly publicly accepted BUT threatened to expose the kid’s identity apart from his twitter handle to the public:

 

CNN reporter Andrew Kaczynski opted not to identify the user “because he is a private citizen who has issued an extensive statement of apology, showed his remorse by saying he has taken down all his offending posts, and because he said he is not going to repeat this ugly behavior on social media again.”

 

But Kaczynski then added that “CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change,” seemingly indicating that CNN would identify the user if he repeats his “ugly behavior” on social media. That sentence was widely interpreted as a threat.  (‘Extremely Unethical’ — CNN Draws Backlash After Threatening To ID Reddit User Behind Trump’s WWE Video; By Peter Hasson; The Daily Caller; 7/4/17 11:27 PM)

 

CAN YOU SAY, “BLACKMAIL”!!!!

 

In response Twitterdom began make their own President Trump whoops up on CNN videos. I wonder if CNN will these people down as well?

More Photoshopped Vids of Trump Destroying CNN Go Viral Here’s 60 Seconds of Pure Fun

When CNN decided to seek out the Reddit user responsible for the hilarious President Donald Trump vs CNN wrestling meme video, the network unintentionally put a target on its own from the whole of the internet.

 

This new meme video show 60 seconds of Trump beating CNN in various ways let’s see if CNN is going to track this user down as well.

 

CNN issued a statement, according to The Hill in which it asserted that it had found the Reddit user who created for the following meme:

 

 

 

 

After finding out the person’s identity, CNN then apparently tried to show some couth by not releasing the user’s name. The network’s statement in part read:

 

“CNN is not publishing ‘HanA**holeSolo’s’ name because he is a private citizen who has issued an extensive statement of apology, showed his remorse by saying he has taken down all his offending posts, and because he said he is not going to repeat this ugly behavior on social media again. In addition, he said his statement could serve as an example to others not to do the same.”

 

However, the network’s statement also came with a veiled warning to the user should he decide to continue his “behavior.” The statement added that, “CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.”

 

Now, after being harshly criticized for creating a witch hunt to find the Reddit user, CNN unwittingly opened up a can of worms on the internet.

 

Someone else decided to show the network how infantile and childish it acted by releasing a 60-second clip showing a photoshopped Donald Trump beating a photoshopped CNN in various situations.

 

The tweet was sent from YouTube personality Mike Cernovich’s official account with the caption: “CNN tracked down the creator of the Trump wrestling meme and threatened him. This is how the internet is responding.”

 

 

The reaction on Twitter has been absolutely hilarious:

 

 

 

https://twitter.com/immigrant4trump/status/882626613220921347

 

CNN proved that it is a fake news network by repeatedly reporting falsities, and by engaging in Twitter warfare instead of focusing on real news.

 

No word on whether or not CNN reporters have tracked down the creator of the 60-second compilation yet, but should they do so that would further prove that the “news” network is nothing but a gossip media outlet.

 

Share this story on Facebook and Twitter if you enjoyed the compilation and add your voice to the comment section below.

CNN threatened Tuesday to expose the identity of the Reddit user who had claimed credit for creating the spoof wrestling video that President Donald Trump tweeted on Sunday morning, showing him fighting the cable network.


After reporting Monday that the Reddit user, “HanAssholeSolo,” had a history of racist and antisemitic tweets, CNN tracked him (apparently, he is male) down and attempted to make contact with him by email and telephone.

On Tuesday, the Reddit user posted an apology

CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski then reported Tuesday that CNN had “identified the man behind the account,” and had spoken with the Reddit user after he posted his apology. The Reddit user reportedly “asked to not be named out of fear for his personal safety and for the public embarrassment it would bring to him and his family,” Kaczynski said.

Ultimately, CNN decided not to reveal his identity — not for safety reasons, but for political ones

This “If it quacks like a duck, then it is a duck” comparison to Barack Hussein Obama has actually been around for a while. Since it represents the essence of what a chain email looks like, I will make an effort to verify the claims. If I can’t find the claim connected to the phrase I will say so and try to find a similarity. If my Google and Bing search skills turn up empty I will admit it. (In all honesty, the admission may mean I inputted the incorrect search parameters. I you find something I didn’t, feel to rectify the case in a comment.)

 

Here is a Youtube video that covers many of the assertions of Obama quacking like a Left Wing betrayer of American values:

 

VIDEO: Obama Admits He Is A Muslim

 

 

Posted by FeelTheChangeMedia

Published on Aug 7, 2009

 

Obama admits that he is a Muslim. Obama bowing before a Muslim king. Obama talking about his Muslim family. Obama quoting from the Koran. Obama defending Islam. Obama visiting a Mosque. And many more clips of Obama and his Muslim connections. Legal Disclaimer: The writers, producers, and editors of this video are not claiming or implying that Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim, or that Obama said he was a Muslim, rather they are only examining the evidence surrounding the rumor that Barack Hussein Obama might be a secret Muslim.

The REAL Duck                                

Whether we are willing to honestly admit it or not, folks, herein lies the reason and major source of many of our nation’s current problems! Elections do have their consequences, you know!


Keep this old adage in mind: If you walk like a duck and quack like a duck; have feathers like a duck; eat like a duck and lay eggs like a duck, there is a very high probability that you are a duck.


Mike Gallagher, the 8th most recognized talk radio personality in the country, is heard by over 2.25 million listeners weekly. He compiled and wrote the following essay: "Obama: It was You”. [According to TruthOrFiction.com, Gallagher didn’t write this essay. Rather he posted it on his Facebook page.]


President Obama,


This is why you didn't go to France to show solidarity against the Muslim terrorists:

* It was you who . . .
spoke these words at an Islamic dinner - "I am one of you.”

 

[Blog Editor: I cannot find any references of Obama attending an Islamic dinner whence he told the Muslim diners “I am one of you”. Nonetheless, there are plenty of public appearances that Obama insinuated an Islamic affinity.]

* It was you who . . .
on ABC News referenced -"My Muslim faith." [HERE & HERE]

* It was you who . . .
gave $100 million in U.S. taxpayer funds to re-build foreign mosques. [TopRightNews quotes CBS the taxpayer bill was closer to $770 BILLION to foreign Mosque refurbishing]

* It was you who . . .
wrote that in the event of a conflict - "I will stand with the Muslims." [The context that the Left can’t or won’t admit]

* It was you who . . .
assured the Egyptian Foreign Minister that - "I am a Muslim.”

* It was you who . . .
bowed in submission before the Saudi King. [Quacks like duck: HERE and HERE]

* It was you who . . .
sat for 20 years in a [Black] Liberation Theology Church condemning Christianity and professing Marxism.

* It was you who . . .
exempted Muslims from penalties under Obamacare
that the rest of us have to pay. [After Obamacare passed coupled with Obama’s documented sympathy for Islam, read the potential Obamacare exemptions and then looking at Sharia Law, thought an exemption could arise for Muslims. However, the perception proved wrong.]

* It was you who . . .
purposefully omitted - "endowed by our Creator" -
from your recitation of The Declaration of Independence.

* It was you who . . .
mocked the Bible and Jesus Christ's Sermon on the Mount while repeatedly referring to the 'HOLY' Qur'an.

* It was you who . . .
traveled the Islamic world denigrating the United States of America.

* It was you who . . .
instantly threw the support of your administration behind the building of the Ground Zero Victory mosque overlooking the hallowed crater of the World Trade Center.

* It was you who . . .
refused to attend the National Prayer Breakfast, but hastened to host an Islamic prayer breakfast at the White House.

* It was you who . . .
ordered Georgetown Univ. and Notre Dame to shroud all vestiges of Jesus Christ BEFORE you would agree to go there to speak, but in contrast, you have NEVER requested the mosques you have visited to adjust their decor.

* It was you who . . .
appointed anti-Christian fanatics to your Czar Corps [Kevin Jennings and John Holdren and Mohamed Magid]

* It was you who . . .
appointed rabid Islamists to Homeland Security.

* It was you who . . .
said that NASA's "foremost mission" was an outreach to Muslim communities.

* It was you who . . .
as an Illinois Senator was the ONLY individual who would speak in favor of infanticide.

* It was you who . . .
was the first President not to give a Christmas Greeting from the White House [From what I looked at, verbally the word “Christmas” was used in greetings from the White House. However the Obamas, like many Leftists, tried to secularize Christ’s birth “Holiday” greeting cards], and went so far as to hang photos of Chairman Mao on the White House tree.

 

Mao Zedong Ornament (Noted Communist atheist dictator)

 

* It was you who . . .
curtailed the military tribunals of all Islamic terrorists.

* It was you who . . .
refused to condemn the Ft. Hood killer as an Islamic terrorist.

* It is you who . . .
has refused to speak-out concerning the horrific executions of women throughout the Muslim culture(a), but yet, have submitted Arizona to the UN for investigation of hypothetical human-rights abuses.(b)

 

a) Perspective: HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE
 

b)  State Department Stands By Decision to Include Arizona in U.N. Human Rights Report


* It was you who . . .
when queried in India, refused to acknowledge [It’s the NYT, so you might need to scroll down a bit for details] the true extent of radical global Jihadists, and instead profusely praised Islam in a country that is 82% Hindu and the victim of numerous Islamic terrorist assaults.

* It was you who . . .
funneled $900 million in U.S. taxpayer dollars to Hamas.

* It was you who . . .
ordered the USPS to honor the MUSLIM holiday with a new commemorative stamp.

* It was you who . . .
directed our UK Embassy to conduct outreach to help "empower" the British Muslim community.

* It was you who . . .
funded mandatory Arabic language and culture studies in grammar schools across our country. [“Mandate” appears to be off. A better scenario is highly encourage.]

* It is you who . .
follows the Muslim custom of not wearing any form of jewelry during Ramadan. [Obama has not worn his wedding ring on numerous sightings other than just Ramadan. It might be a coincidence in 2009 travelling in Muslim nations not wearing his wedding ring. The Left claims the ring was in the shop being repaired.]

* It is you who . . .
departs for Hawaii over the Christmas season so as to avoid past criticism for NOT participating in seasonal White House religious events. [The only criticism I have about Obama vacationing in Hawaii during Christmas is the taxpayer cost.]

* It was you who . . .
was uncharacteristically quick to join the chorus of the Muslim Brotherhood to depose Egypt's Hosni Mubarak, formerly America's strongest ally in North Africa; but remain muted in your non-response to the Brotherhood-led slaughter of Egyptian Christians.

* It was you who . . .
appointed your chief adviser, Valerie Jarrett, an Iranian, who is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood, an off-shoot of the Muslim Brotherhood. [Jarrett spoke at ISNA 2009  –  a Muslim Brotherhood American front group. John Gaultier’s blog is full of Muslim Sisterhood details and connecting Jarrett but is totally vague on sources.]

* It was you who . . .
said this country is not a Christian nation.

* It was you who . . .
said the Muslim call to worship is "the most beautiful sound on earth." [Leftist NYT has the quote. Click “Find” on a word search, use the word “sound” and you’ll find it easily.]

QUACK! QUACK! QUACK! QUACK!

On November 30, 2017 I posted this title: Comments to ‘Is Obama the Blame for rising Islamic Terrorism in USA?’. I will not go into the details of the post which was a somewhat hostile response to a person that went by the name Allan Harm. In this day of anonymity, the name may or may not have been a pseudonym.

 

The point I am going to run with is a series of comments by Yurki1000 that begins 6/5/17. I haven’t decided yet but I might also include some responses to Yurki’s thoughts. Also, this may turn into more than one part because the comments are many.

 

I add further thoughts toward the bottom.

"Ontario passes ‘totalitarian’ bill allowing gov’t to take kids from Christian homes"

 

- TORONTO, June 1, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Ontario’s Kathleen Wynne Liberals have passed what critics describe as “totalitarian” Bill 89 by a vote of 63 to 23 on the last day before Queen’s Park adjourns for the summer.

 

Pro-family advocates warn Bill 89 gives the state more power to seize children from families that oppose the LGBTQI and gender ideology agenda, and allows government agencies to effectively ban couples who disagree with that agenda from fostering or adopting children.

 

Bill 89, or the Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act, 2017, repeals and replaces the former Child and Family Services Act that governs child protection services, and adoption and foster care services.

 

It adds “gender identity” and “gender expression” as factors to be considered “in the best interests of the child.”

 

At the same time, it deletes the religious faith in which the parents are raising the child as a factor to be considered, and mandates child protection services consider only the child’s own “creed” or “religion” when assessing the best interests of the child.

 

“With the passage of Bill 89, we’ve entered an era of totalitarian power by the state, such as never witnessed before in Canada’s history,” says Jack Fonseca, senior political strategist for Campaign Life Coalition.

 

“Make no mistake, Bill 89 is a grave threat to Christians and all people of faith who have children, or who hope to grow their family through adoption.” –

 

 

 

- Children’s Aid agencies now have “a type of police power to bust down your door, and seize your biological children if you are known to oppose LGBT ideology and the fraudulent theory of ‘gender identity', if for instance, some claim is made that your child may be same-sex attracted or confused about their ‘gender,’” according to Fonseca.

 

“We already see similar tyranny happening in other jurisdictions, such as Norway, where the main child protection service there, Barnevernet, has been involved in numerous high profile seizures of children from traditionally-principled families,” he added.

 

Fonseca pointed out the Liberal bill gives legal cover for government workers to discriminate against Christians who want to adopt or foster children. –

 

 

 

- Fonseca also issued a plea to Christian leaders, particularly the Catholic bishops.

 

“Why has the most powerful spiritual body in this province, the Catholic hierarchy, not lifted a finger nor raised a voice to oppose this tyranny against Christian families, and those from other faiths?” Fonseca questioned.

 

“The lack of spiritual leadership is killing us. Every single time that Liberals, either federally or provincially, roll out the LGBT juggernaut to take away our rights, or to demonize us as bigots, we hear nothing but silence from the Church. This has to stop.” –

"The roots of communism: the socialist-communist reductions in Paraguay 1609-1767"

 

- This chapter is most important as it will be proven that the Jesuits are the true authors of socialist-communism. The economic system of the Dark Ages was feudalism consisting of the few rich landowners and the many poor peasants. It was “a sin” to make a profit by anyone other than the feudal lords. Thus, if the world is to be returned to the Dark Ages, the White Protestant Middle Class must be destroyed. Socialist-Communism accomplishes this, which system includes the progressive income tax (wickedly taxing the common-law right to labor exercised by all wageearners), having yielded its bitter fruit in both Great Britain and the United States.

 

The great deception is that the Jews are the authors of communism. (After all, is not Labor Zionism, as opposed to Revisionist Zionism, Jewish communism?) The facts are that the Jesuits used their Masonic Jews to introduce it in 1848 with the Second French Revolution (Marx), and again in 1917 with the Bolshevik Revolution (Lenin). Several years later, in 1933, the Order, in the person of Georgetown University Jesuit Edmund A. Walsh, then moved their 33rd Degree and Shriner Freemason, Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR), to recognize Russia’s bloody government. The Society then financed Russian communism with its Knights of Malta on Wall Street. This enabled Jesuit-trained and advised Josef Stalin, “the Grand Inquisitor,” to carry out the Great Terrorist Purges of the Thirties. Having deceived the world into believing communism was of Jewish origin, the Jesuits then used Hitler to implement “the Final Solution to the Jewish Question” pursuant to the evil Council of Trent. The result was the mass-murder of European and Russian Jewry at the hands of the Order’s Teutonic Knights, the Nazi “Schutzstaffel” (SS). At the close of the Second Thirty Years’ War (1945) the Jesuits, with their Vatican Ratline, helped hundreds of top Nazis to escape to South America. And where in South America? To the old dominion where socialist-communism had been perfected by the Jesuit fathers—to the nation of Paraguay. For it was here that the socialist tenets of Roman Catholic “Saint” Sir Thomas More, an English traitor to his Protestant King Henry VIII, were revived and later used against Reformed nations. –

The Moron who created that meme knows S**T and nothing else. Everyone who believes that excrement has excrement where their brain should be. I will not waste my time refuting each lie individually.

 

[Blog Editor: Dajjal was a bit harsh yet I do see his reasoning. Let’s look at some of the post that interested Yurki:

 

the Jesuits are the true authors of socialist-communism.”

 

Off the top of my head my knowledge of history recalls the Jesuits were originally formed as an organization to defend the tenets of the Roman Catholic Church from the Reformer Protestants who had grown weary of Catholic leadership excesses (HERE and HERE) that strayed from Biblical principles. History records the Catholic response as the Counter Reformation which did lead to some harsh wicked measures against non-Catholics such as Protestants, Jews, Muslims and Christian spinoffs such as the Cathars. The Cathars as a religious movement do not exist today because of this Counter Reformation better known as The Inquisition.

 

As such the Jesuits were brutal religious zealots and hardly atheistic Communists that Marx and Engels would later propagandize the world.

 

I am pleased the author of “The roots of communism doesn’t toss the entirety of all Jewry as a bunch of NWO Communists preparing to take over the globe:

 

The great deception is that the Jews are the authors of communism. (After all, is not Labor Zionism, as opposed to Revisionist Zionism, Jewish communism?)

 

There are Jews that are Leftist that are proud of their Jewish heritage but do not practice Judaism. These are the kind of Jews that have forgotten their history as to reasons they would walk 40-years in the Wilderness before entering the Promised; why Jews experienced good times and bad during the Judges period and why the Northern Kingdom of Israel and finally Judah were expelled from their God-given heritage. Each time was for losing their faith and loyalty to God Almighty (Yahweh). And finally, greedy Jewish leadership among the Sadducees and Pharisees resulted in a huge expulsion of Jews in the rebellions between 66 AD and 136 AD. (Yup I’m old school preferring Anno Domini over Christian Era – CE.) Even now it is my opinion Israel faces an existential crisis more from being divided between Left and Right than Western Antisemitism and Muslim Jew-hatred. But that’s just my opinion.

 

But alas, the author of “The roots of communism makes connections between Catholic Jesuits, Protestant FDR and Communist atheist monster Joseph Stalin of the USSR. Like Dajjal I have run out of gas in showing the load of illogic of the connections. Nonetheless, FDR’s cozying up to Stalin and the USSR does have some historical data of either political stupidity or political sympathy for the despotic Communist state.

 

Well, that’s all for now. No promises on further Yurki comments. If you have a fascination with this kind of thing as I do, Yurki has made plenty of comments supporting his frame of thinking. I don’t go along with much of Yurki’s thoughts, but that doesn’t mean he is absolutely off track either.

 

Until the next urge to cross post and comment on Yurki, may God’s blessings overtake you with His love and wellbeing.

An Independence Day message from the Christian news website Assist News provides a Christian perspective of Freedom. The first caught my attention because it was written by a person from a relatively small city in Oklahoma – Grove. I have lived most of the last 25-years in Oklahoma arriving from a small college town in Central Washington State (east of the Cascades) where I had grown up, went to High School and completed my college education.

 

Here is a teaser quote from the essay:

 

“At the very heart of the Christian gospel is the strange truth,” he continues, “that real freedom is found only in giving up everything secular culture touts as freedom. The gospel, it turns out, requires a distinction between the enjoyment of true freedom and the mere possession of ‘free will.’ Not that free will or independence from tyranny is a bad thing; they’re just not true freedom. True freedom, the gospel tells us, is trusting obedience, the obedience of faith. That’s not exactly the image one finds portrayed in popular culture.”

 

So, what does true freedom mean for those who choose to follow Christ? According to St. Augustine, true freedom is not choice or lack of constraint, but being what you are meant to be. (Understanding the Paradox of Freedom; By Carol Round; AssistNews.net; 7/2/17 [Blog Editor: The Ms. Round is quoting is President James Madison])

[Blog Editor: The entirety of the essay is in the email however I am cross posting from the webpage.]

 

GROVE, OK (ANS – July 2, 2017) –

 

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery” -- Galatians 5:1 (NIV).

 

To most Americans, the word freedom connotes images of the American flag. We associate July 4 with the freedoms we’ve been granted by the U.S. Constitution. We celebrate our country’s independence with fireworks and parades.

 

According to dictionary.com, freedom means “the state of being free or at liberty rather than in confinement or under physical restraint.”

 

Physical freedom is denied those locked behind prison walls. But those who have discovered a relationship with Jesus while in prison will tell you they are, indeed, now free, in spite of the iron bars they peer through each day.

 

Found throughout the Bible, the word, “freedom,” is familiar to those who’ve read God’s Holy Word. John 8:32 says, “And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

 

In an article by Roger Olson, he writes, “Unfortunately, two very different ideas of freedom get confused in many people’s minds. The biblical idea of freedom is different from, but easily confused with, the cultural value of the same name. And neither one is the same as “free will.” It can be confusing to the average Christian who wants to know what “real freedom” is. Is it having choices? Is it lack of coercion and constraint? Is it being able to do whatever you want? In what sense does Christ set us free, and how is that different from what Madison Avenue and Hollywood promise?

 

“At the very heart of the Christian gospel is the strange truth,” he continues, “that real freedom is found only in giving up everything secular culture touts as freedom. The gospel, it turns out, requires a distinction between the enjoyment of true freedom and the mere possession of ‘free will.’ Not that free will or independence from tyranny is a bad thing; they’re just not true freedom.

 

True freedom, the gospel tells us, is trusting obedience, the obedience of faith. That’s not exactly the image one finds portrayed in popular culture.”

 

So, what does true freedom mean for those who choose to follow Christ? According to St. Augustine, true freedom is not choice or lack of constraint, but being what you are meant to be.

 

For too many years of my adult life, I was a slave—a slave to other’s opinions, a slave to the false image I portrayed as someone who had her life together, a slave to the identities I slipped into because of cultural demands. I wasn’t experiencing true freedom. I wasn’t completely free until I embraced the woman God has created me to be.

 

“Humans were created in the image of God. True freedom, then,” writes Olson, “is not found in moving away from that image but only in living it out. The closer we conform to the true image of God, Jesus Christ, the freer we become. The farther we drift from it, the more our freedom shrinks.”

 

Only Christ can set us free.

A noted Conservative is invited to speak at a Liberal Arts university where chances are a majority of the professors are hate-Trump Leftists, the MSM is then filled with Antifa anarchists pushing students to riot and destroy property.

 

OR, a Conservative operated speaking rally or Trump rally occurs and AGAIN Antifa anarchists move to confront the Conservatives/Trump supporters with violence expecting the Right-minded to stand by like a rug to take a pummeling or weapon threats.

 

The American Left call this the “Resistance”. This kind of Resistance is simply a load of un-American crap promoted by the Left to perpetuate the expansion of the Obama-Left fundamental transformation away from what has made America great as established by our insightful Founding Fathers.

 

NOW! Let’s look at the way Conservatives/Trump supporters respond to Leftist mockery.

After Starbucks staff mocks woman in Trump shirt, fellow supporters have AWESOME response

Pro-Trumpers Entering Starbucks

 

No matter where you personally stand on President Trump, you can’t deny he has a loyal fanbase of supporters who tend to not only stick up for their choice of leadership, but for one another as well.

 

More than 50 people decked out in pro-Trump gear jammed themselves into a small Starbucks store in Charlotte, North Carolina after some of the staff was accused of mocking a woman wearing a Trump shirt.

 

TheBlaze is reporting, The peaceful sit in, which began at 2 p.m., completely filled the Starbucks location — and even the parking lot, for a little while. The group had no demands, but instead wanted to stand up to a business they felt was disrespectful toward their political views, Mecklenburg County Republican Party board member James Tatro told The Charlotte Observer.

 

“We wanted the staff to see that Trump supporters are just as human as anyone else,” he said. “We live in a diverse city. It’s unacceptable in a modern society to make a customer feel uncomfortable, whether it’s a liberal business mistreating a conservativee customer or a conservative business mistreating a liberal customer.”

 

Members of the pro-Trump group told Fox 46 Charlotte that the sit-in started out a little tense, but the mood shifted when people started ordering beverages using names associated with the White House, like Vice President Mike Pence and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

 

In a Facebook post about the event, the Mecklenburg County Republican Party described the sit-in as “a perfect example of a peaceful political demonstration.” The party said the group consisted of representatives from the board, Hispanics for Trump, Women for Trump, and Deplorable Pride, a pro-Trump LGBT group.

 

Fox46 VIDEO: Trump Supporters Stage “Sit-in”

 

 

 

The original incident that sparked the demonstration involved Kayla Hart who claims that after she ordered a drink the staff laughed at her, shoved her order at her, and then shouted, “build a wall.”

 

The corporate office of Starbucks released a statement afterwards apologizing for the way Hart was treated, stating they “failed to meet this customer’s expectations of us, and we have apologized and are working directly with her to make it right.”

 

No one, regardless of their political affiliation should be mocked for showing support for an elected official at any level. That includes liberals.

 

All in all, we could all use a bit more practice being decent to each other, especially after this last election cycle.

CNN (aka the Communist News Network or Fake News Network) is not only a Left Stream Media leader in hate-Trump stories (NBC/MSNBC is right up there) it also is one the largest purveyors of Fake News against President Trump.

 

As such Project Veritas has exposed CNN – AGAIN – to disseminating Fake News with the agenda of making President Trump and CNN panelist Billy Baer appear as liars about voter fraud to the favor of the Dem Party.

 

First, a quote from Project Veritas about this toward the end of a post on their website:

 

Carr’s “direct co-workers,” are from the program New Day, hosted by Alisyn Camerota and Chris Cuomo, which hosted an eight-minute panel discussion featuring six Trump supporters.

 

Leaked audio from the segment–an hour and a half long–was provided to Project Veritas.

 

The audio proved that CNN had selectively edited the segment to make the Trump voters appear as conspiracy theorists.

 

In reality, the context of their arguments was omitted to feed CNN’s Anti-Trump narrative. (American Pravda Part 3: CNN Selectively Edits, Hates Trump, and Think Voters Are Stupid; By Nicholas Evangelista; Project Veritas; 6/30/17)

 

Next, I will cross post the email alert from James O’Keefe of Project Veritas followed by the James O’Keefe tweet that has 2-minutes and 19-seconds of the 8-minute CNN/Camerota Panel.

 

As of the moment I was looking for corroboration, I could only find a USSA News story that utilizes InfoWars/Prison Planet as part of their source. (A source too often unjustly accused of fake Conspiracy Theories yet in many cases a quite justified accusation.) I am cross posting the USSA News story because it has the same footage the O’Keefe tweet has but with an added extra minute.

CNN caught AGAIN

 

By James O’Keefe

Sent 6/30/2017 1:34 PM

Sent by Project Veritas

 

This morning, I released another Project Veritas video—where CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota engages in some questionable “selective editing,” in order to make a pro-Trump panelist look like a conspiracy theorist.

 

  1. Watch this video immediately.

 

  1. Tweet this video to President Trump (@RealDonaldTrump)—showing him that the American people are standing behind him when it comes to combating CNN’s fake news.

 

In the video, Alisyn Camerota skeptically asks a panelist, Billy Baer, if there’s any proof of President Trump’s claims that there was widespread voter fraud in the 2016 election.

Baer says he doesn’t personally have any concrete proof—and the video cuts off his answer, making him look like a conspiracy theorist.

But, in the full audio obtained by Project Veritas, CNN cuts out Baer’s next sentence: where he references a Project Veritas video that exposed how easy it is to fraudulently obtain a ballot, at polling places all across the country.

When we say that CNN is peddling “fake news,” we don’t just mean they’re making up stories. They’re also twisting words, taking opinions out of context, and misrepresenting the facts in order to build a narrative that doesn’t exist.

If we’re going to stop fake news at CNN, we’re counting on your help right now.

Watch this video immediately, and then tweet it to @RealDonaldTrump—so he knows exactly how many Americans are joining him in the fight against fake news.

Thanks for your help.

In truth,

 

James

CNN Accused Of Editing Out Eyewitness Testimony Of Voter Fraud

 

Posted by Tea Party Conservative

June 30, 2017

USSA News

 

CNN has been accused of deceptively editing a statement from an interviewee to omit the part where he describes the voter fraud he personally witnessed when he worked as a poll watcher.

 

As Infowars reports, the accusation stems from Project Veritas’ latest video exposing the inner workings of CNN.

 

In the Project Veritas video, the organization’s head James O’Keefe refers to an eight minute segment CNN aired on March 30.

 

That segment involved a forum of Americans discussing their views on President Donald Trump.

 

One of those Americans was William Baer, who stated that during his time as a poll watcher, he saw people being bussed in to polling stations.

 

If Baer’s remarks were to be proven true, they would give credence to President Donald Trump’s concerns about voter fraud in the 2016 election, which Democrats have been very quick to denounce.

 

Unfortunately, according to O’Keefe, Baer’s full explanation for what he saw never made it to air.

 

O’Keefe’s report contains the raw audio of the March 30 segment which shows that Baer’s explanation – during which he states that, during his time as a poll watcher in New Jersey, he personally witnessed lax voter registration standards that would make it very easy to commit voter fraud – was cut out from the piece completely.

 

“The piece suggests that Baer did not have a legitimate answer to [CNN host Alisyn] Camerota’s question – in actuality the answer was cut because it didn’t fit their narrative – this is a textbook lie of omission,” claims James O’Keefe.

 

See the relevant segment of Project Veritas’ latest video – including the leaked audio from the moment Baer provides eyewitness testimony – below.

 

 

 

News of CNN’s obvious selective editing comes as the battle concerning whether or not President Donald Trump is correct to be concerned about voter fraud rages on.

 

Earlier today, CNN had Kentucky’s Democratic Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes on air to accuse President Donald Trump of attempting to justify his lies with his voter fraud panel’s recent request for information to aid in its investigation.

 

 

 

The Baltimore Sun quotes Democratic Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz as stating, “President Trump’s voter fraud investigation is an attempt to suppress and disenfranchise voters, plain and simple.”

Here is a reprise of Oregon Malheur National Wildlife Refuge standoff instigated by the unjust re-sentencing of Dwight and Steven Hammond after they had already served time for a conviction that should never have happened. A bunch of ranchers from all over the Western U.S. came as a protest militia against the unjust actions of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). There were a few leaders of this rancher militia but the few headlines that made into the MSM placed Ammon Bundy and his brother Ryan as the faces of BLM resistance. Ammon and Ryan were fresh off a successful standoff with their father Cliven Bundy in Nevada.

 

Here’s a rehash of the Hammonds’ BLM difficulties:

 

According to an October 7, 2015 press release from the Obama Department of Justice, Dwight Lincoln Hammond, Jr., 73, and his son, Steven Dwight Hammond, 46, both residents of Diamond, Oregon in Harney County, were sentenced to five years in prison by Chief U.S. District Judge Ann Aiken for arsons they committed on federal lands. 

 

The men were charged nearly a decade after the first fire and five years after the second.

 

Oregon Live reports on the fires:

 

The Hammonds' run-ins with the government began in 1999, when Steven Hammond started a fire that escaped onto U.S. Bureau of Land Management territory. The intent of the fire was to burn off juniper and sagebrush that hindered the growth of grass for their cattle.
 
BLM employees reminded Steven Hammond that although his family leased public land for grazing, he couldn't burn it without a permit. But in September 2001, the Hammonds started another fire. This one ran off their property on Steens Mountain, consumed 139 acres of public land and took the acreage out of production for two growing seasons, according to court papers.
 
Then in August 2006, lightning sparked several fires near the spot where the Hammonds grew their winter feed. Steven Hammond set a back-burn to thwart the advancing flames, and it burned across about an acre of public land, according to federal court records.

 

 

First, both men were sentenced in 2012 by now-retired U.S. District Judge Michael Hogan, following the trial. Steven received one year and a day in prison for setting fires in 2001 and 2006. Dwight got 3 months for his 2001 involvement. Hogan did not believe the men had malicious intent to be labeled as terrorists under the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996, even though he sentenced them to jail for the time he did.

 

 

Both men served their sentences and were released. Now, the feds have appealed those sentences and want the mandatory minimum five-year sentence imposed on the men, and so they appealed to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, who agreed with the feds that the judge ruled illegally. However, now they are wanting to label the Hammonds as terrorists under the 1996 law in order to put them back in jail.

 

... READ ENTIRETY (Bigger Than Bundy Ranch: Militia put on Level 2 Alert to Defend Oregon Ranchers against Tyrannical Feds Who Label Them Terrorists; By TIM BROWN; Freedom Outpost; 11/24/17)

 

NOW, after this rehash and couple it with the Obama Leftist corrupt regime which pushed much of the BLM land grabbing and rancher persecution; there are HUGE indications that the FBI has become so inculcated with Obama’s Leftist swamp, that they are severely a part of the problem to devastate the property rights of Ranchers.  

 

Can you say, Communist redistribution in favor of State management?

SHERIFF BACKS CLAIMS OF FBI-LAWBREAKING IN OREGON STANDOFF

Documentary-makers release more evidence that raises questions

 

By BOB UNRUH

June 29, 2017

WND

 

The Hammond family

 

In a stunning development a year after the standoff at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon, where two-dozen armed supporters gathered to protest the courts’ extension of sentences for two ranchers, a sheriff has backed claims of FBI misbehavior.

 

The declaration came from Deschutes County Sheriff Shane Nelson just as FBI agent W. Joseph Astarita was pleading not guilty to three counts of making false statements and two counts of obstruction of justice in federal court in Portland, Oregon.

 

The FBI agent was accused of firing at the protesters, then picking up shell casings to conceal that fact and lying to investigators.

 

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Oregon said Astarita falsely stated he had not fired his weapon during the attempted arrest of protester LaVoy Finicum, who was shot dead by another officer during the incident, “when he knew he had in fact fired his weapon.”

 

“Astarita also knowingly engaged in misleading conduct toward Oregon State Police officers by failing to disclose that he had fired two rounds during the attempted arrest,” the statement said.

 

Nelson said, as the Washington Times reported, that the actions by “multiple members of the FBI Hostage Rescue Team” had “damaged the integrity of the entire law enforcement profession, which makes me both disappointed and angry.”

 

Get David Kupelian’s culture-war blockbusters, “The Marketing of Evil,” “How Evil Works” and his latest, “The Snapping of the American Mind” at the WND Superstore. Also available in e-book and audiobook versions.

 

Nelson said he told Justice Department and FBI officials, including now-acting Director Andrew McCabe, over a year ago about “possible criminal conduct” by some involved FBI Hostage Rescue Team agents.

 

And while the case against Astarita is in court, new evidence also is arising from the makers of an acclaimed documentary about the incident.

 

WND reported earlier on the armed standoff that has been variously described by opponents as “militia terrorism” and by defenders as rebellion against government tyranny.

 

The 41-day standoff ended in mass arrests after law enforcement fatally shot one of the occupiers.

 

The documentary is “American Standoff,” and while it aired previously on DirecTV, it can now be viewed in its entirety at this website. Among the people interviewed in the documentary is best-selling author and WND Vice President David Kupelian.

 

The “American Standoff” story starts with Dwight and Steven Hammond, Oregon ranchers who were controversially convicted and sentenced for setting a controlled land-management fire on their property that went out of control onto federal land. But after they served their sentences and were released, a judge – at a federal prosecutor’s insistence – ordered them back into court, where they were sentenced to further time in prison under an anti-terrorism law, even though there was no evidence presented that the ranchers had planned or engaged in terrorism in any way.

 

Sympathetic ranchers and others – encouraged by the federal government’s stand-down from a previous armed confrontation in Nevada two years earlier on the land of rancher Cliven Bundy – protested the new injustice and ended up staging an armed occupation of the refuge.

 

They succeeded in keeping federal officers at bay until they were finally taken into custody when police staged a highly dangerous highway stop of vehicles carrying the protesters and shot two men.

 

Ryan Bundy, one of Cliven Bundy’s sons, was injured, while LaVoy Finicum was killed.

 

Eventually, seven of the others who were arrested were acquitted of federal charges related to the standoff. The feds even dismissed charges against a self-described independent broadcaster, Peter Santilli, who documented the occupation near Burns, Oregon, but was accused by prosecutors of being part of the protest group.

 

However, one of the FBI agents was charged with serious infractions of the law for the final confrontation. So far, Astarita is the only FBI agent to be indicted.

 

In addition to the feature-length “American Standoff” documentary, director Josh Turnbow and his film-making crew have now produced a series of “Aftermath” short video segments that have been posted online.

 

In the first, Jeanette Finicum, the widow of LaVoy Finicum, explains how the government, after killing her husband, also canceled the lease she needed to continue her family’s ranching operation.

 

She said she has lawyers fighting to restore the lease.

 

And she said a wrongful death case is inevitable against the government after a certain legal time period passes.

 

She insists her husband had his hands in the air and was surrendering but “was murdered.”

 

“He was mowed down in cold blood.”

 

Then, the video explains, the federal agents were “caught on camera, picking up casings before the forensic team arrived at the site of the shooting.”

 

Also, the video shows, Finicum’s gun, which he reportedly had been reaching for, wasn’t found for eight hours after the shooting.

 

“How many people tended to his body without finding it?” the video asks.

Turnbow told WND the “Aftermath” series continues the stories of people affected by the standoff.

 

In addition to conducting in-depth interviews with nearly everyone involved on all sides of the conflict, Turnbow said he tapped WND’s managing editor, David Kupelian, to offer a journalist’s perspective and analysis.

 

“I think Josh Turnbow did a terrific job in ‘American Standoff,'” said Kupelian, “not just in fairly and sensitively presenting all sides of a complex and troubling situation, but in telling a riveting, deeply thought-provoking true story about today’s America.”

 

Kupelian said the documentary “captures the classic modus operandi of an oppressive government: Perpetrate injustice, provoking widespread public outrage, which always includes a small number of people who seriously overreact and, however well-meaning, do something illegal or irresponsible – and then portray them as the real problem, or in this case as ‘criminals’ and ‘terrorists.'”

 

He said the main provocation in the story was “convicting two Oregon cattle ranchers, a father and son team whose controlled burn on their own property had gotten out of control and migrated onto federal land, with arson under an anti-terrorism statute that mandates a minimum five-year prison sentence.”

 

“Even the presiding judge said such a severe and unjust sentence would ‘shock the conscience.’ Well, it did shock the conscience of a lot of other ranchers – and the Malheur standoff was the result,” he said.

 

Get David Kupelian’s culture-war blockbusters, “The Marketing of Evil,” “How Evil Works” and his latest, “The Snapping of the American Mind” at the WND Superstore. Also available in e-book and audiobook versions.

 

Turnbow said he would like to find out what really happened and consider what the outcome should have been, especially with regard to the still-imprisoned ranchers serving a five-year “terrorism” sentence.

 

“We should be talking about it,” Turnbow says.

 

The larger issue at hand – federal control over land in the American West – continues to loom large.

 

The federal government is the largest landowner in the Rocky Mountain and Western states, owning contiguous parcels of millions of acres.

 

Conflicts between ranchers, who in some instances have owned and worked their land for generations, and a federal government seemingly always hungry for more, are common.

 

President Trump’s recent executive order to review the possibility of shrinking the boundaries of federal monuments could help defuse the longstanding tensions between America’s ranchers and the government.

It is my belief that Seth Rich’s murder is significant enough to keep following. Rich’s murder suspiciously occurred after he was suspected as being the secret whistleblower that released DNC emails to Wikileaks (NOT the Russia Fake News) that demonstrated inherent Democratic Party corruption ensuring Crooked Hillary won the Dem nomination over Bernie Sanders.

 

 

Some insights about Seth Rich. He was a Bernie supporter which means he was probably even more Marxist in ideology than Crooked Hillary. That which makes Rich’s murder significant is the reputation of the Clintons in destroying lives that threaten the Clinton image personally and legally.

 

Hence, when I run into a story about Seth Rich that adds more narrative to the young man’s murder is something I run with. Alicia Powe writing for WND is going with a story about Tim Canova running against Debbie Wasserman Schultz within the Dem Party for her District nomination for Congress.

 

The significance of the Canova-dethrone run against Schultz is that she was exposed as being front and center in rigging the Crooked Hillary nomination. AND Canova is focusing on the lack of a proper police investigation by the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) of Seth Rich’s murder.

 

If you primarily read, listen or watch Mainstream Media (MSM); you may not be aware the MPD is pushing the theory that Rich met his demise in a botched street robbery that had no witnesses and nothing – as in no available valuables whatsoever – was taken. AND Seth Rich was taken alive to a hospital reportedly on the road to recovery yet died mysteriously in the hospital bed.

 

Does this sound like a botched robbery to you?

 

In full disclosure, Canova like murder victim Seth Rich was a Bernie Sanders supporter. Meaning again he is another Dem that will lean way to the Left of Crooked Hillary or Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Ergo, if Canova overcomes the Leftist Dem Establishment and defeats Schultz, it will still not be good for America for another Marxist-Socialist to beat out the Republican nominee in the same Florida District.

 

NEVERTHELESS, any focus on exposing the truth behind Seth Rich’s murder will be a good thing.

DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ CHALLENGER: PROBE SETH RICH MURDER

'I know millions of people ... just want to know what happened in this investigation'

Murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich

 

WASHINGTON – Any American who cares about the rule of law should be demanding the truth about the mysterious murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich, says Tim Canova, a Democratic law professor who is challenging former DNC chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz for her congressional seat in 2018.

 

Canova has been slammed by left-leaning media outlets for calling attention to the unusual circumstances surrounding the July 10, 2016, murder of Rich, the DNC voter-expansion data director who is rumored to have leaked DNC emails to WikiLeaks.

 

“There should be a thorough investigation of what happened,” Canova told WND. “I know millions of people are asking the same question – they just want to know what happened in this investigation. That’s really all I am guilty of, making that plea for a thorough transparent investigation.”

 

He continued: “Whether we are talking about Seth Rich or anyone else, if you believe in the rule of law, you should want to apprehend people who commit these types of crimes, and I say that without speculating about who did it. I am grateful [WND] is looking into it.”

Canova’s 2018 opponent, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., served as DNC chairwoman until emails were made public by WikiLeaks revealing that under her leadership the DNC collaborated to undermine Bernie Sanders’ campaign.

Unsolved murder of Seth Rich

 

As WND has reported, Rich, 27, had accepted a position with Hillary Clinton’s campaign just before his death. He was murdered in Washington, D.C., near his apartment in an affluent neighborhood. Rich was shot twice in the back with a handgun, and his wallet, credit cards, watch and phone were left in his possession. The Metropolitan Police Department has described the murder as a “botched robbery.”

 

Private investigators have claimed there is evidence Rich was the source WikiLeaks used to obtain thousands of Democratic National Committee emails released on the eve of the party’s presidential nominating convention last July. The emails, indicating the party was manipulating the primary race in favor of Hillary Clinton, led to the resignation of Wasserman Schultz. On July 22, just 12 days after Rich’s death and days before the Democratic Party Convention in Philadelphia, WikiLeaks released 20,000 emails from DNC officials.

 

WND has launched a GoFundMe campaign to get to the bottom of the Seth Rich murder. Help us find out what really happened to the DNC staffer!

 

Former detective Rod Wheeler

 

 

Also as WND has reported, former detective Rod Wheeler was initially hired by Rich’s parents through a third party to find their son’s killer. Wheeler alleges former interim DNC chairwoman Donna Brazille contacted the Metropolitan Police Department demanding to know why he was “snooping” after Wheeler began investigating Rich’s murder. As a result, he said, law-enforcement authorities are now refusing to provide him with more details about the case.

 

Wheeler and another source also told WND that the family’s spokesman, Brad Bauman – a Democratic political crisis consultant – was “assigned” to the family by the DNC. Bauman denies the DNC hired him to represent the Rich family, calling the claim “patently 100 percent false.”

 

As WND reported, the total reward for solving Rich’s murder currently stands at approximately a half-million dollars. However, the DNC has offered no reward for information leading to the arrest of the murderer of its own young staffer. Instead, the DNC honored its murdered employee by ...

Ask Wild Bill for America

William Finlay - Wild Bill for America

 

European style hate-speech laws protecting the evils inherent in Islam have made it to the shores of the North American Continent; i.e. CANADA.

 

William Finlay, better known as Wild Bill for America, was arrested at a Canadian airport on his way to a speaking engagement accused of hate-speech towards Islam. World Coalition Against Islam invited Wild Bill to speak at Calgary’s Olympic Plaza called the “Patriotic Unity Mega Festival” about Islam and Sharia. Wild Bill had not even given a speech yet on Canadian soil.

 

Apparently, the arrest was based on a speech he had given in Jacksonville, Florida USA. Again apparently, Canadian hate-speech laws can be enforced as a criminal act for speech given outside the borders of Canada.

 

Below is the Youtube video of Wild Bill talking about his Canadian detainment followed by another video set in Florida that Canadian authorities based their hate-speech detainment. Then I found an awesome article about Wild Bill’s inhospitable treatment by the Canadian government at Fortress of Faith.

Canada Has Already Lost The Right Of Free Speech

American Arrested in Canada for Smuggling “Hate Speech”

 

By Pierre Coovert

Fortress of Faith

 

An American was arrested at the airport in Canada for “Smuggling hate speech” on his iPad. William Finlay was invited to speak at a at an event at Calgary’s Olympic Plaza called the “Patriotic Unity Mega Festival” on Islam and Sharia Law. He was also fighting for freedom of speech. He was met at the airport by the police and his materials were taken from him as hate speech.

 

This is of special interest to me because the very same thing happened to us in our ministry about 3 or 4 years ago. My pastor was helping me by taking some of my DVDs to our dropshipper in Canada. He was detained at the border crossing and our materials were seized as hate speech. Later they returned the material without apology, but they did admit that the material was not “hate speech.”

 

William Finlay goes by the name, “Wild Bill for America.” He was a policeman for more than 20 years. He is a Christian, and he travels around proclaiming truth. His topic at the festival was titled “Preserving Your Freedom Of Speech, and Not Becoming Sharia Compliant.”

 

[Blog Editor: At this point Pierre Coovert places the Wild Bill video posted above entitled, “Smuggler Bill's Canada Blues”.]

 

This incident shows that freedom of speech is already dead in Canada. They will not allow anyone into their country who is concerned about organizations and religions, like Islam, that don’t want you to have freedom of speech. Those who stand for freedom against those who want to take away freedom, are considered hateful.

 

The day after this happened to us I did a broadcast on What if Muhammad came to the Canadian border, and the border police went through his materials the same way they are going through the material of Christians, would they find material that would incite people to kill those of another belief system? The answer is ABSOLUTELY YES! The Qur’an is full of such statements. The problem is, they are protecting Islam from scrutiny. They are trying to silence people who are warning about what Islam really teaches. Those who show that Islam is a religion of hate and incitement to violence are the ones being targeted as hate mongers. Islam doesn’t just teach violence against unbelievers, it actually carries it out.

 

Somehow, those who are warning of the danger are the criminals, and those who are preaching and practicing violence are the “innocent victims.” We need to stand up against this because if we don’t we will wake up one day and find that all of our freedoms are gone. The first right we will lose is our freedom of speech, and before long we will find we have lost the right to practice our faith. If you are paying attention, you know that it has already started.
