WATCH: Protesters Storm CNN Headquarters: ‘No More Fake News!’
“Protesters stormed the CNN Center in Atlanta, Georgia chanting “No more fake news!” at the network’s headquarters to demand an end to the fake news stories about President Trump’s administration.
CNN, most recently, has been engulfed in fake news scandals, as well as getting caught for targeting the creator of an anti-CNN internet meme. The scandals have resulted in at least three CNN employees resigning and forcing the corporation to retract Russia-related stories.
Brian Maloney of the Media Equalizer told protesters outside CNN’s headquarters that the corporate media giant puts down Americans and Trump supporters.
Debbie Dooley, an organizer of the protest, said she wants companies that advertise with CNN to be held accountable for the “very fake news” that has been produced.
“We the people can do this,” Dooley said. “We worked hard to elect Donald Trump. That was just the beginning. We need to continue to fight. We need to continue to take it to the Resist movement. And we depend on Breitbart to give us the truth.”
“CNN, no more fake news and if you continue to do so, we’re going to be out here every month until you report unbiased news,” Dooley said.
The protest against CNN came after the media corporation was slammed for a multitude of scandals. Most recently, three CNN employees were forced to resign, as Breitbart News reported, after releasing a Trump-Russia collusion story that ended up being unfounded.
CNN hosts and reporters were also caught claiming that during the recent G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany, Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin held a “secret dinner,” Breitbart News reported. That narrative was repeated by CNN’s Brooke Baldwin, among others, despite not being true.”
‘We don’t need Germany – Trump is welcome!’ Poland rolls out red carpet for US President

“DONALD Trump arrived in Poland to a hero’s welcome for meetings with countries closest to Russia on his way to the G20 summit in Germany later in the week.
The US President landed in Warsaw at 9.30pm BST where he will get a chance to patch up trans-Atlantic ties this week when he meets with NATO allies still rattled by his failure on an earlier trip to embrace the principle that an attack against one member is an attack against all.
He disembarked Air Force One with wife Melania, wearing an emerald green trench coat, by his side.
The White House said he would showcase his commitment to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in a speech and in meetings with a group of nations closest to Russia on his way to the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany on Friday and Saturday.”
Sebastian Gorka on O’Keefe CNN Tapes: “Complete Vindication For The President”
“National Security editor for Breitbart, Dr. Sebastian Gorka, was asked during an interview today to give his thoughts on the series of O’Keefe’s CNN tapes. In the series of tapes, a CNN producer can be clearly heard admitting that Trump/Russia collusion is “bullshit” and that the entire thing is a “witch hunt” to help CNN’s ratings. Gorka did not mince words when addressing the ramifications of these released tapes, and the (now public) exposure of CNN knowingly pushing false stories.
“I think this is the day when the Left rues ever coming up with the phrase ‘Fake News’ because now we have the evidence. We have the consequences of systematic generation of Fake News, happening at the epicenter of one of the places that was producing the most of it,” he said.
“It’s just a testament to the determination of the president,” Gorka continued. “He sticks with what he knows to be true. He hangs in there doggedly and finally. Thanks to intrepid people like James O’Keefe, we have the evidence, and people are getting fired.”
Soros Legal Alum Helps Get Illegal Alien MS-13 Member Released
“An illegal alien MS-13 gang member was released by a federal judge after two immigration attorneys lobbied for his release.
U.S. District Judge Elizabeth K. Dillon ordered the 17-year-old, self-admitted illegal alien MS-13 gang member be released from federal custody, despite his criminal and gang-affiliated history.
The illegal alien previously admitted to selling drugs in Honduras and witnessing multiple murders committed by fellow MS-13 members. Now, he will be allowed to live freely in the U.S.
In an interview with the Washington Post, the illegal alien spoke about how being a member of the violent MS-13 gang felt like a family:
“It was like the family I couldn’t find at home,” he said. “I thought nobody loved me. But when I found them, I said, ‘This is my family. They love me.’ ”
Older gang members gave him money, alcohol, marijuana and cocaine. But soon they demanded he sell drugs, too, including heroin and “piedra,” or crack.
“I began to see things, like them torturing people,” the teen said. “For rent. Because they belonged to another gang. Because they had screwed up somehow.”
The illegal alien gang member arrived in the U.S. as an ‘unaccompanied minor child,’ who are turned over to the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR).
As Breitbart Texas reported, the federal government has continued placing unaccompanied minor children in MS-13 gang hot-spots across the U.S.
One of the two attorneys who helped fight for the MS-13 gang member’s release, Simon Sandoval-Moshenberg and Rebecca Wolozin with the Legal Aid Justice Center, has ties to left-wing billionaire George Soros.
Wolozin previously worked for Soros’ Open Society Foundation as a ‘Legal Research Intern,’ according to her online resume.”
Cost Disputes Could Derail Plans To Track Foreign Departures In US Airports
“The federal government has developed a system to track foreigners leaving the country through U.S. airports, but disputes with airlines may prevent the timely application of the technology.
The new tracking system would rely on photographs taken of all passengers boarding international flights at their departure gate, allowing authorities to know with certainty whether a foreigner has left the country and where they went.
After nearly two decades spent developing technology to track individuals who enter the U.S. legally and then stay past their legal departure date, and repeated congressional mandates demanding an exit tracking system, the federal government has met resistance from airlines who don’t see the benefit of implementing it.
“Right now, there is no benefit to us. We’re not interested in adding another 10 minutes to the boarding process,” one airline official told the Wall Street Journal in Monday article.
John Wagner, who heads the program for the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Customs and Border Protection agency told a congressional committee last month that DHS needs to rely on airlines to run the cameras in order to avoid an “astronomical” cost to taxpayers.
“We’re out of time and we’re out of excuses,” Wagner said. “We can’t do this without the airlines.”
Wagner also disputed the claim that the new system will inconvenience airlines, pointing out that the new technology would eliminate the necessity of checking passports.
Airline officials denied the technology would allow them to stop checking passports, saying they still have a responsibility to make sure passengers aren’t flown into other countries without identification.
The exit tracking system, which has received bipartisan support, would prevent individuals from remaining in the country illegally by having someone else exit using their passport. It would also prevent people from leaving the country undetected by using someone else’s passport.
In the past two years hundreds of thousands of people have overstayed their visas. This problem received significant congressional attention after the September 11 attacks when it was discovered several of the hijackers were in the country on expired visas.
The DHS has run a number of exit tracking pilot programs at various airports around the country. The central obstacle the department faced was determining a method to make sure individuals reported as having departed the country actually boarded the flights they were supposed to be on.
There is ample opportunity for someone to get through security and then simply leave the airport, since travelers pass through airport security checkpoints well before they reach their departure gate. The DHS successfully navigated this obstacle by developing a plan in which cameras are installed in departure gates. The cameras would scan passengers faces directly prior to boarding, the system would then cross references the images with the list of passengers who are supposed to be on the flight, confirming the individual boarded their flight.
Wagner explained that he hopes airlines will cooperate in implementing the technology but said the DHS must implement the programs with or without their cooperation. “Congress has been pretty clear about the requirement,” he told the Wall Street Journal.”
“Thursday night’s Congressional Baseball Game was hailed as the ultimate sign of bipartisan unity, but dozens of Democrat staffers reportedly cursed, booed, and jeered when President Donald Trump appeared on the video screen at Nationals Park to deliver a message of unity.
According to a Washington Times report, the “staffers erupted into boos, jeers and even vulgar gesticulations” while Trump was saying, “you are showing the world we will not be intimidated by threats.” One person reportedly “shouted an expletive” at Trump while others even mocked the teams when they gathered near second base in prayer.
“As you all know tonight’s game has taken on a much deeper level of meaning, beyond anything that we would have thought,” Trump said in the video. “By playing tonight, you are showing the world that we will not be intimidated by threats, acts of violence, or assaults on our democracy.”
After House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) was shot Wednesday morning while practicing for the game with his fellow Republican teammates, leaders of both parties called for unity and civility.
Perhaps Democrats were just following their leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). The House Minority Leader ended the truce hours before the game when she accused Republicans of being “sanctimonious” for expressing concern about violent left-wing rhetoric that may have motivated the shooter, a rabid hater of President Donald Trump and Republicans. The shooter, James Hodgkinson, asked at least two Representatives whether the players on the baseball diamond were Republicans or Democrats before opening fire.”
The Unhinged Lose it with the ‘Two Minute Hate’ in 1984
|| Youtube | Intellectual Takeout |
“Have you ever noticed how viral outrage regularly rips through social media? Pity the poor individual or group who suffer the burning heat of the public’s wrath. Yet, as quickly as it comes, it’s over. Then there’s a lull for a few days, and then we’re on to the next outrage.
If it troubles you, as it does with us, you might find comfort and terror in George Orwell’s “Two Minutes Hate” created in 1984. It’s not hard to see the parallels. Perhaps the most disturbing line in the whole piece is the following:
“The horrible thing about the Two Minutes Hate was not that one was obliged to act a part, but, on the contrary, that it was impossible to avoid joining in.”
How true of so much of our social media outrage. If you are not denouncing whatever target has drawn the ire of the masses, you may quickly find yourself a target. But even setting that fear aside, how easily so many are drawn into outrage these days without knowing all of the facts or having a real vested interest in the issue or occurrence.
The mass psychology is all too eerie. It’s even worse when you read Orwell’s description below. Enjoy…
In its second minute the Hate rose to a frenzy. People were leaping up and down in their places and shouting at the tops of their voices in an effort to drown the maddening bleating voice that came from the screen. The little sandy-haired woman had turned bright pink, and her mouth was opening and shutting like that of a landed fish. Even O’Brien’s heavy face was flushed. He was sitting very straight in his chair, his powerful chest swelling and quivering as though he were standing up to the assault of a wave. The dark-haired girl behind Winston had begun crying out ‘Swine! Swine! Swine!’ and suddenly she picked up a heavy Newspeak dictionary and flung it at the screen. It struck Goldstein’s nose and bounced off; the voice continued inexorably. In a lucid moment Winston found that he was shouting with the others and kicking his heel violently against the rung of his chair. The horrible thing about the Two Minutes Hate was not that one was obliged to act a part, but, on the contrary, that it was impossible to avoid joining in. Within thirty seconds any pretense was always unnecessary. A hideous ecstasy of fear and vindictiveness, a desire to kill, to torture, to smash faces in with a sledge-hammer, seemed to flow through the whole group of people like an electric current, turning one even against one’s will into a grimacing, screaming lunatic.”
“In the novel (1984, I mean) there are a few obscure passages in the book-within-a-book that reveals the fundamental sci-fi principle behind the fictional world of Oceania. That scientists—economists, sociologists, psychologists—figured out all the mechanics behind political revolutions, and the Party used this knowledge to engineer a government that would never be overthrown.
Through a combination of technology, propaganda, and burning money on perpetual war, they created economic and social conditions that would forever prevent the preconditions for a revolution.
This is what makes 1984 a work of science fiction: it’s a “what if” exploration of the human condition in a world where science gives us an unusual ability, in this case the ability to control society. Orwell’s answer to this question is depressing: such an ability would first be seized by people who want to rule the world with an iron fist, and that will be the eternal end of civilization.”
Arnold Schwarzenegger on Trump: I wanted to ‘smash his face’
“Arnold Schwarzenegger isn’t backing down from his public feud with President Donald Trump.
The 69-year-old former California governor and current host of “The Celebrity Apprentice” responded to Trump’s tweets last month about the reality show’s low ratings.
“I said, ‘Let’s sit on it for an hour,” said Schwarzenegger to Men’s Journal. “I called my assistant and said, ‘I think what we really should do is request a meeting and go back to New York. And then we just smash his face into the table.’
“I think people really reacted well to that response,” Schwarzenegger told the magazine of his video. “I sound more presidential and more diplomatic and more elder-statesman — that’s exactly the way Donald should be.”
Dianne Feinstein Calls For Investigation Into Whether Loretta Lynch Gave Hillary “Cover” During The Election
|| The Gateway Pundit
“Former Attorney General, Loretta Lynch was exposed by James Comey during his Senate testimony when he revealed the former AG directed him to call the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server — a “matter.”
Looks like the admission set off alarm bells within the Democrat party, with high ranking Senator Dianne Feinstein calling for an investigation into whether or not Lynch tried to help Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election.”
Feinstein Calls for Investigation Into Whether Loretta Lynch Provided Cover for Hillary Clinton
“When Democrats were calling for James Comey to testify before Congress, a number of Republicans warned them to be careful what they wished for. After all, this is the man they blame (when it’s convenient) for Hillary Clinton’s election loss.
Comey’s comments about Loretta Lynch and the Hillary Clinton “matter” have raised a few eyebrows on Capitol Hill, including those of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA). Feinstein was unnerved by Comey’s characterization of Lynch’s conduct and is now calling for an investigation into whether there was an obstruction of justice.
Feinstein made the comment when was asked about that section of Comey’s testimony on Sunday’s “State of the Union” with Briana Keilar:”
Here is the portion of Comey’s testimony she’s referencing:
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), appearing on “Face the Nation,” said he’d also like Lynch to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Also Sunday, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) said more investigation into Lynch’s directive to Comey was needed. Gohmert characterized Lynch’s action as “at best an attempt to manipulate the election” and that “the FBI is not allowed to look into matters, it’s got to be an investigation.”
King believes Comey should also be asked “Very important [questions] to … try and figure out why he didn’t take memos, prepared memos, in his dealings” with her, if what she asked him to do gave him a queasy feeling. It’s extremely illogical that Comey would feel compelled to take detailed notes of his meetings with Trump because he felt Trump might later lie about the meetings, but didn’t think about documenting a meeting with Lynch that spurred him to take solo action because he was concerned about the FBI’s credibility? ”
Microsoft, Cisco Hide H-1B Hires Through Indian Outsourcing Firms, Says Report
“A number of the largest tech corporations in Silicon Valley hide their hiring of foreign workers through the H-1B visa by contracting them through India-based outsourcing firms, a report states.
In a revealing report by Bloomberg News, Cisco, Microsoft, Google, Facebook and others are using outsourcing firms to obtain hundreds, and sometimes thousands of H-1B staff, often replacing Americans.
For instance, when outsourcing firms applied for foreign H-1B workers on Cisco’s behalf, the average salary for those jobs being outsourced were about 25 percent lower than the average salary for foreign worker that the company had directly requested.
In other words, Cisco hides its usage of the H-1B visa by contracting foreign workers through an outsourcing firm and pays them less than when they hire foreign workers directly. The revelation is in-step with critics’ frustration with the H-1B visa, which they describe as a cheap labor avenue:
Cisco’s use of the visa program has been the subject of public attention over the years, as its executives have lobbied for its expansion even while conducting multiple rounds of layoffs. The company eliminated 940 jobs at its headquarters in 2016, and 390 more so far this year.
Not every application resulted in a new job at Cisco — fewer than a third of the applications for all industries in 2016 were accepted. Still, taken as a whole, the applications show that Cisco is both more reliant on the H-1B program than previously acknowledged, and that the company uses it in a way that has not been fully understood. The contractors were not applying for visas covering the type of senior-level positions that Cisco sought for itself. Instead, almost all of these visa requests were for jobs requiring little or no specialized knowledge. The average salaries for those positions were about 25 percent lower than the jobs Cisco applied for directly.
Every year, more than 100,000 foreign workers are brought to the U.S. on the H-1B visa. Most recently, that number has ballooned to potentially hundreds of thousands each year, as universities and non-profits are exempt from the cap. With more entering the U.S. through the visa, Americans are often fired and forced to their foreign replacement.
Additionally, other giant American tech companies are using the same model as Cisco. PayPal, for example, partnered with an outsourcing firm between 2015 and 2016 that applied for half of the foreign H-1B staff the tech giant was requesting. The other half were applied for directly by PayPal.
At the Microsoft Corporation’s headquarters, 43 percent of the foreign H-1B workers were applied for through an outsourcing outfit, as well as 29 percent at eBay and 12 percent at Facebook’s respective home bases.”
