CA Congressman Ted Lieu Caught Lying Again | Dec 11 2017

Democrat Ted Lieu Repeats CNN‘s Debunked Wikileaks Claim, Deletes Widely-Shared Tweet After Being Called Out

|| Law & Crime

“Representative Ted Lieu (D-CA) tweeted out baseless accusations against President Donald Trump and Wikileaks before deleting the accusatory tweet after being publicly shamed for it.

He also accused Wikileaks, Trump and Donald Trump Jr. of collusion. On December 8, at 5:49 a.m., Lieu wrote:

Trump’s own CIA Director stated Wikileaks acts like a “hostile intelligence service.” Russia used Wikileaks against democracies. Now we know @POTUS & Donald Trump Jr. & others in Trump campaign were given access to hacked documents on Wikileaks. Sure looks like collusion.

Lieu’s tweet also contained a link to the now-discredited CNN report.

As noted by journalist Glenn Greenwald, Lieu’s tweet was ultimately shared in excess of 7,000 times and liked more than twice that number. Perhaps in response to being called out by Greenwald, Lieu eventually deleted his tweet–quietly and without admitting his error.

In that now-debunked story, CNNoriginally claimed an email was sent to President Trump and his eldest son regarding certain Wikileaks releases on September 4–ten days before the releases were publicly available.

In truth, the email in question was sent to Trump and his son on September 14–one day after Wikileaks published the DNC emails and began promoting them online. A report issued by the Washington Post hours after CNN published their false story provided the actual email–which was curiously missing from CNN‘s original reporting.

That same email, written by one Michael J. Erickson, also referenced other publicly-accessible emails of Colin Powell‘s available at DCLeaks.com.

CNN initially claimed their now-discredited story was a massive bombshell regarding Trump and Wikileaks.

The thrust of their initial reporting and promotion of the now-retracted story was that the media network had discovered physical evidence of an apparently nefarious relationship between the Trump campaign and Wikileaks.

Those claims–the entire basis of CNN‘s story–were ultimately shown to be false.

Law&Crime reached out to Lieu’s office for comment, but no response was forthcoming at the time of publication.”

MSM Asks Viewers to Ignore Susan Rice Story | Apr 04, 2017

ABC News – Doesn’t Cover Biggest News Story of the Year about Rice Spying on Trump Team – Susan Rice’s Husband ABC Producer

| theGatewayPundit

“Senior Fox News Correspondent, Adam Housley revealed on Friday that Intel Chair Devin Nunes (R-CA) knows who unmasked the identities of Trump and his close associates.  Sources also told him that the unmasking was purely for political purposes to embarrass Trump and had NOTHING to do with national security.

Then over the weekend it was CONFIRMED that Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice Requested the Unmasking of Incoming Trump Officials.

This is perhaps one of the biggest news stories of the year and maybe the biggest story of its kind EVER.  That politicians were using US spying techniques put in place to protect Americans from terroriststo spy on competing political campaigns is unheard of in US history.

The coverage in the Main Stream Media (MSM) was apathetic but the coverage at one major MSM outlet was nonexistent.  ABC News this morning has no mention of the story on its home page.

Perhaps ABC isn’t covering the story because Susan Rice’s husband, Ian Cameron, is an ABC News Executive Producer?

Is nepotism keeping ABC from reporting on Rice’s illegal actions?”

CNN Goes on Rampage Against Susan Rice Bombshell, Instructs Viewers to Ignore Story

| Grabien News

“Since news broke Monday that the Obama Administration’s National Security Adviser, Susan Rice, directed the “unmasking” of NSA intercepts of Trump associates, CNN has raced to shoot down the blockbuster report.

CNN Tonight’s Don Lemon went so far as to announce he would ignore the news at all costs.

While interviewing a Democratic congressman, CNN’s Chris Cuomo claimed it was “demonstrably untrue” Rice sought surveillance of the Trump team, even as that’s exactly what yesterday’s reports prove.

Over the last 24 hours, the network has also repeatedly called on its chief national security correspondent — who was also a political appointee in the Obama White House — Jim Sciutto, to dismiss the reports as a non-story; Sciutto has even excused Rice claiming ignorance of the unmasking scandal two weeks ago, arguing Rice “wasn’t aware” what unmasking Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) was referring to.

And on Tuesday’s “New Day,” anchor Alisyn Camerota openly pleaded with Sen. John McCain to write-off the news as unimportant.

Last night, Lemon began “CNN Tonight” with an announcement that the Rice report a “fake scandal ginned up by right-wing media and Trump” that he would not be baited into justifying with coverage.

“On this program tonight, we will not insult your intelligence by pretending,” it’s legitimate, he said. “Nor will we aid and abet the people trying to misinform you, the American people, by creating a diversion. Not going to do it.”

House Intel Panel Asks Susan Rice To Testify

| ZeroHedge

“If former National Security Advisor Susan Rice thought she could get away from the current furore over the Trump “unmasking” scandal with just one MSNBC interview in which Andrea Mitchell did not even ask her why she lied two weeks ago to PBS, she will be disappointed as moments ago Dow Jones reported that the House Intelligence Panel has asked Susan Rice to testify, supposedly under oath.

The next question on everyone’s lips: will she plead the Fifth?

As a reminder, earlier in the day, the MSNBC anchor asked Susan Rice if she would testify before congress as Rand Paul requested, Rice responded by changing the subject to Russia.

“Rand Paul is suggesting that you be subpoenaed to testify. Would you be willing to go to Capitol Hill?” Mitchell asked.

“You know, Andrea, let’s, let’s… see what comes,” she said. “Umm, I’m not going, ahh, you know, sit here and prejudge, but what I will say is that the investigations that are underway as to the Russian involvement in our electoral process are very important and they’re very serious. Every American ought to have an interest in those investigations going wherever the evidence indicates they should.”

Her decision may have been made for her.”

How Cable CNN Viewers stay mis-informed watching false and fake news | Mar 02, 2017

No, Don Lemon, Loretta Lynch didn’t recuse herself from the Clinton email scandal

– Washington Examiner

“Oh, Don Lemon. July 2016 wasn’t that long ago.

Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch never recused herself from last year’s federal investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server. Lynch also did not meet with Hillary Clinton on a tarmac last year as federal agents reviewed the former secretary of state’s emails.

Watching CNN Wednesday evening, however, you’d think exactly the opposite.

“Loretta Lynch recused herself from any decision regarding Hillary Clinton because of that meeting of Hillary Clinton and Loretta Lynch, who was attorney general at the time, on the tarmac,” Lemon said during a panel discussion.”

….Continue reading @ WashingtonExaminer

Imagine if you will that you only got your ‘news’ from CNN. Don Lemon mispoke or lied, twice in one sentence. First Attorney General Loretta Lynch never recused herself from the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server and second, it wasn’t Hillary who met with Lynch, it was Bill Clinton. Yet the  other pundits didn’t challenge it, they simply nodded their heads in assent. 

One of the pundits claims that Sessions met with ‘the top Russian spy’ without any proof whatsoever. So far no one has claimed that the Russian ambassador was a spy. Yet no one challenged that lie. 

“I have had no indication” that Kislyak is a spy, said Matthew Rojansky, director of the Kennan Institute at the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington.

     This is why the Mainstream Media is so loathed and distrusted. They focus on the inconsequential and superfluous, while misstating or ignoring the essential. They delay comprehension and confuse the public. /CJ

Proof That CNN Thinks All Black People Look The Same

“CNN’s “New Day” tweeted out an interview with Elijah Cummings Thursday morning.

Unfortunately, instead of including an image of the Maryland congressman, they threw in a pic of Georgia Rep. John Lewis.

It took nearly 15 minutes for anyone — other than The Daily Caller — to notice the blunder.”

‘The Real Housewives of ISIS’ – BBC2 Trailer | Jan 2017

The Real Housewives of ISIS – BBC 2

– Youtube

“The Real Housewives of ISIS, a controversial sketch within BBC Two’s comedy show Revolting, debuted last night and provoked outrage from some viewers and mega-LOLZ from others.

The reality sketch poked fun at the housewives wearing matching suicide vests, lamenting their husbands cheating on them with 40 virgins and using a #DeathToTheWest hashtag along with ISIS emoji on their Instagram posts.

The skit, which mocks shows such as Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, vastly divided fans on social media, with some blasting the show for making light of an incredibly sensitive subject.
However, some people saw the funny side of the show and praised the BBC for tackling sensitive material and making light of a delicate subject in a traditionally British sense of humour.”

CNN’s Don Lemon on Chicago Torture Video: ‘I Don’t Think It Was Evil’

– Breitbart

“CNN host Don Lemon said Wednesday evening the broadcasted torture of a bound and gagged victim in Chicago was not “evil,” adding that the suspects had “bad home training.”

News broke nationally Wednesday after a Facebook Live video showed the victim beaten, slashed, held at knifepoint, and more in a Chicago apartment while assailants are heard saying “fuck white people” and “fuck Trump.” Chicago police held a press conference the same day to announce an investigation is underway and four adults are in police custody. The suspects held the “traumatized” victim for as many as 48 hours, police said.

“The fact that this was a vulnerable person that was probably duped into going along with them. It appears it is someone who is mentally disabled, I think makes it even more sickening,” said guest Matt Lewis. “But at the end of the day, you just try to wrap your head around evil. That’s what this is, it’s evil. It’s brutality. It’s man’s inhumanity to man.”

“I don’t think it’s evil,” Lemon replied. “I don’t think it’s evil. I think these are young people and I think they have bad home training. I say, who is raising these young people? I have no idea who’s raising these young people. Because no one I know on Earth who is 17 years old or 70 years old would ever think of treating another person like that. It is inhumane. And you wonder, at 18 years old, where is your parent? Where’s your guardian?”

The Left Wing Echo Chamber: Facebook | Oct 2016

The Guardian: Facebook a Giant Political Echo Chamber for Millennials as Election Nears

– Breitbart

5123x

“61% of millennials receive their political news from Facebook, according to a 2015 report by Pew Research, which Scott Bixby of The Guardian argues puts young people in the biggest political echo chamber ever during a presidential election.

Facebook, which runs on a series of complex algorithms and systems, tends to ensure that users see more of what they like and what their friends like, as opposed to different opinions and viewpoints from elsewhere.

CNN came just behind Facebook for news for millennials at 44%, followed by local TV at 37%, and Google News, the search engine that has frequently been linked to a pro-Hillary Clinton bias, at 33%.

Generation Xers also placed Facebook at the top of their news list, with 51% of people choosing it as their primary news platform. This was followed by local TV at 46% and CNN at 45%.”

CNN Cancels Dr Drew Right After He Questions Hillary’s Health | Aug 2016

CNN CANCELS DR. DREW’S SHOW

– Conservative Outfitters

drdrew1

“ATLANTA – Dr. Drew Pinsky has been let go days after questioning Hillary Clinton’s health. Doctor Drew was so “gravely concerned” about Clinton’s health he decided to speak publicly about after reviewing her medical records. CNN EVP Ken Jautz said: Dr. Drew and his team have delivered more than five years of creative shows, and I want to thank them for their hard work and distinctive programming”.  Dr. Drew’s final show will air on September 22.

Dr. Drew Pinsky is an American board-certified internist, addiction medicine specialist. and says the former Secretary of State may be receiving inadequate health care.

Pinsky said the treatment Hillary received is “bizarre” and would explain the “weird side-effects” (chronic coughing, seizure like episodes, trouble climbing stairs) voters have been noticing for months. What do you think?”

Dr. Drew’s Show Just Got Cancelled. Was It Because He Speculated About Hillary’s Health? Or about her 1950’s type care?

– Daily Wire

CNN-Canceled-Dr.-Drew_s-Show-Days-After-He-Questioned-Hillary_s-Healthx

“It appears Dr. Drew Pinsky upset the bosses at the Clinton News Network (CNN) after discussing Hillary’s poor health on a morning radio show. Eight days after saying he was “gravelly concerned” after looking into Clinton’s medical history, his show on HLN was canceled by its parent company, CNN.

On August 16th, Dr. Drew was on KABC’s “McIntyre in the Morning” (clip below), where he apparently put the final nail in his HLN show coffin.

“Based on the information that she has provided and her doctors have provided, we were gravely concerned not just about her health, but her health care,” said the doctor.

“Both of us concluded that if we were providing the care that she was receiving, we’d be ashamed to show up in a doctor’s lounge. We’d be laughed out,” he added. “She’s receiving sort-of 1950-level care by our evaluation.”

“……And based on the information that she has provided and her doctors have provided, we were gravely concerned not just about her health, but her health care.

INTERVIEWER: Why?

PINSKY: It’s hard for people to understand. Both of us concluded that if we were providing the care that she was receiving, we’d be ashamed to show up in a doctor’s lounge. We’d be laughed out. She’s receiving sort-of 1950-level care by our evaluation. So we took a look at her record, and here are the basic facts. She had two episodes of what’s called Deep-Venous Thrombosis. Common problem. Blood clots in the leg. She also has hypothyroidism, and she’d been treated for hypothyroidism with something called Armour Thyroid, which is very unconventional and something that we used to use back in the ’60s. And both he and I went, “Hmmm, that’s weird.” And by the way, wow, Armour Thyroid sometimes has some weird side effects.

Oh well. OK. So she goes on Coumadin. That’s weird, because Coumadin really isn’t even used anymore. Now we use Eliquis or Xarelto, things like this. Certainly the presidential candidate would get one of the newer anti-coagulates. Then she falls, hits her head, and as a complication of that has something called a Transverse Sinus Thrombosis. This is an exceedingly rare clot. I’ve only seen one of these in my career, which is a clot in the collecting system for the cerebral spinal fluid, and it essentially guarantees that somebody has something wrong with their coagulation system. Well, she’s had two clots, a Transverse Sinus Thrombosis.

What’s wrong with her coagulation system? Has that been evaluated? And oh, by the way, Armour Thyroid associated rarely with hyper-coagulability. So the very medicine the doctors are using may be causing this problem, and they’re using an old-fashioned medicine to treat it. What is going on with her health care? It’s bizarre. I got to tell you.”
