MSNBC’s entire nightly lineup of Chris Hayes, Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnell and Brian Williams completely ignored “Empire” star Jussie Smollett getting charged on Wednesday night for faking the hate crime where he was supposedly attacked.

Last month, Smollett filed a police report alleging that two white Trump supporters beat him up in the middle of the night. He claimed these two men poured a bleach-like substance on him and tied a noose-like rope around his neck while shouting racist and homophobic slurs.

But investigators concluded the Smollett orchestrated the entire situation, and he was charged for filing a false police report.

Anthony Guglielmi, the Chief Communications Office for the Chicago Police Department, announced Smollett was charged with “Disorderly Conduct / Filing a False Police Report” at 7:53 p.m. Wednesday night. (RELATED: Jussie Smollett Arrested After Alleged ‘MAGA’ Hoax)

A review of MSNBC’s on-air coverage via Grabien, a television video-clipping service, turned up nothing on Smollett between any of their nightly shows. Instead, each of them spent time discussing a new report that the special counsel’s investigation could wrap up as soon as next week.

With MSNBC, like the other networks, airing reruns of the nightly lineup shows in the middle of the night, the first time the networked aired the newest Smollett developments was at 5:10 a.m. on “Morning Joe First Look” Thursday — roughly nine hours after the story broke.

Comparatively, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham and Shannon Bream all mentioned it during their shows Wednesday night. Carlson, whose show is on at 8 p.m., led his show with a “Fox News Alert,” informing his audience of the charges. (RELATED: Smollett Charged With Disorderly Conduct For Filing A False Police Report)

“This is a Fox News alert, Chicago police just announced a dramatic development in the Jussie Smollett case. Smollett is no longer considered the victim of a crime, indeed just seconds ago, he was charged, felony charges, for filing a false police report. We’re going to have the developments in this fast-breaking story in just moments,” Carlson said as his show began.

CNN’s nightly anchors also discussed the newest developments in the Smollett saga. Anderson Cooper concluded his show with Brian Stelter talking about it, while Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon discussed Smollett as well. Lemon, who is on the network from 10pm-midnight, only discussed Smollett during his first hour. (RELATED: CNN Treats Jussie Smollett With Kid Gloves After He Becomes A Suspect)

MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle and Ali Velshi were the first anchors from any of these networks to cover the story of Smollett allegedly being attacked back on Jan. 29.

CNN anchor Don Lemon offered his perspective of the growing controversy surrounding “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett.

Three weeks after Smollett claimed he was the victim of a racist and homophobic hate crime, he turned himself in to police on Thursday morning on a felony charge for filing a false police report as various leaks from the Chicago PD have indicated that he may have orchestrated the attack.

During his opening monologue, Lemon told his viewers that the story was “personal” since he and Smollett had been acquaintances and were in constant communication since the alleged incident and that Smollett told Lemon what he said had happened to him, which he admitted raised lots of questions.

JUSSIE SMOLLETT ARRESTED, IN CUSTODY OF CHICAGO POLICE

He stressed that while Smollett is “innocent until proven guilty,” he still “squandered the good will of a whole lot of people” if his story wasn’t true.

“He even lied to a lot of people… including me. And that’s not cool,” Lemon said to his viewers. “He squandered the good will of very high-profile people who one day may be running this country like Kamala Harris and Cory Booker and people like President Trump.”

During a panel discussion, Lemon argued that appearing on morning shows “no longer works” when it comes to handling a PR crisis. And because it was a “political” story and not an entertainment one, he should have taken his case to “cable news or on social media.”

“Nothing against morning shows, I love all of my colleagues there, I think they do a great job, but that’s not where it is now,” Lemon said. “Come on a show like this or any of my colleagues and sit down with us live for an hour or however long it takes, answer the questions that need to be answered from real journalists — I shouldn’t say that, from journalists who don’t have to worry about the entertainment arm of their particular company.”

Lemon insisted that Smollett has already “lost the fight in the court of public opinion,” he hesitated to blame him for that defeat.

“He lost because — not his fault. Maybe people were — I don’t know what they were saying to him, maybe because of his representatives. Who knows? But it was handled poorly,” Lemon told the panel.

'GMA' HOST ROBIN ROBERTS: JUSSIE SMOLLETT'S ATTACK STORY WAS CREDIBLE AT TIME OF INTERVIEW

CNN legal analyst Joey Jackson pushed back, saying Smollett “went out and gave the interview” for "Good Morning America."

The CNN anchor later complimented "GMA" host Robin Roberts, saying she did a “terrific job” with her interview with Smollett. But also doubled down, telling his panel that handling a crisis with morning show appearance is “old school.”

I think CNN’s Van Jones must be on some major drugs to compare a race-baiting hustler Jussie Smollett to an icon such as Hall of Fame Baseball Player/Icon Jackie Robinson.

From what I’ve read about Robinson, he did nothing but maintained himself with dignity and forgiveness of racial ignorance, whereas Smollett did spread evil deeds to increase racial tension. Shame on him as well as you Don Lemon.

If there needs to be a comparison, then it should be crafted to show the excellent character and dignity of Robinson vs. the lying deceitfulness of Smollett. One is good, and one is bad. One worked to improve race relations, and the other worked to tear them down.

CNN’s Van Jones compared “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett to Jackie Robinson on Thursday during a rant about how beneficial the actor has been to the “black community.”

Moments after Chicago cops laid out their case against Smollett, the CNN pundit made the eyebrow-raising comparison during a conversation with anchor Kate Bolduan.

Related: Angry Chicago Police Superintendent SLAMS Smollett; Dragged Chicago’s Reputation Through The Mud

“This is the fall of an icon and I don’t think people understand how important he has been in the black community. ‘Empire’ as a show, to have him as a beloved character, I think did a great deal to knock back homophobia in the black community,” Jones said. “The fact that he has been celebrated and you see homophobia in the black community through his eyes on the show, this is a Jackie Robinson against homophobia.”

Robinson famously broke Major League Baseball’s color barrier in 1947, becoming the first black player and was hit with an onslaught of racism in the process. His number, 42, is retired throughout MLB and he’s considered an American hero.

Why would anyone hold this man out as a positive influence he has zero integrity. The black community needs an example of a married man who works hard are devoted to their family and live a good life. That is the example that the black community needs.

Jussie is a punk who thought he was more important than he was, offering nothing to society at large, black or white or brown. In his arrogance and misguided reasoning, he tried to be something he is not. Whether or not you want to believe me, he has now made it tougher for people to be accepted who are genuinely victims of racial crimes.

What’s worse of all, All the CNN hosts are so steeped in their hatred and racism that backed Smollett are not even willing to admit it when they’ve been outed and proven wrong.

Coast Guard Lt. Accused of Plotting Attack

A lieutenant at U.S. Coast Guard headquarters in Washington, D.C., is under arrest for weapons violations but also stands accused of plotting a major attack and creating an apparent hit list of Democrats and media personalities.

In charging documents first posted by George Washington University’s Seamus Hughes and the News4 I-Team, federal prosecutors say 49-year-old Christopher Paul Hasson, of Silver Spring, Maryland, had illegal weapons and was collecting a list of names when he was arrested Friday.

Prosecutors wrote Hasson is a domestic terrorist who “intends to murder innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen in this country” and must be detained.

The feds shared images of a firearms stockpile in Hasson’s basement apartment.

(Published Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2019)

They say internet searches show he was targeting top Democrats and created an Excel spreadsheet list of names, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, Sens. Tim Kaine, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Richard Blumenthal, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke. The list also included top names in media, like MSNBC’s Chris Hayes and Joe Scarborough and CNN’s Don Lemon.

Law enforcement sources told NBC News the feds caught on to Hasson because of searches made on his work computer.

He is accused of searching the following phrases on Google the morning of Jan. 17: “what if trump illegally impeached,” “best place in dc to see congress people,” “where in dc to congress people live,” “civil war if trump impeached” and “social democrats usa.”

His search history also included searches for pro-Russian and neo-fascist literature.

Hasson routinely read portions of a manifesto written by Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik that prosecutors said instructs would-be assailants to collect firearms, food, disguises and survival tools, court papers said. Breivik, a right-wing extremist, is serving a 21-year sentence for killing 77 people in a 2011 bomb-and-shooting rampage.

Prosecutors allege that Hasson visited thousands of websites that sold guns and researched military tactical manuals on improvised munitions.

In a deleted email subfolder, authorities found a draft by Hasson saying, “I am dreaming of killing almost every last person on the earth. I think a plague would be most successful … Start with biological attacks followed by attack on food supply.”

In a draft of a letter apparently intended for a known white supremacist leader, Hasson identified himself as a white nationalist for more than 30 years who advocated “focused violence” to create a “white homeland,” according to charging documents.

The chief at the federal defender's office in Maryland, which is representing Hasson, declined to comment on the allegations. The Coast Guard did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Hasson's arrest. No one answered the door Wednesday at the home address for Hasson listed in public records.

Hasson also is charged with possession of a controlled substance. He appeared to be a chronic user of the opioid painkiller Tramadol and had purchased a flask filled with four ounces of "synthetic urine" online, prosecutors said. Authorities suspect Hasson had purchased fake urine to use in case he was randomly selected for a drug test.

He is scheduled to appear in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt Thursday afternoon.

Let’s recap: Jussie Smollett allegedly committed a federal crime by using the postal service to send himself a fake racist death threat. When that didn’t garner the desired attention, he orchestrated a fake hate crime, and filed a false police report. He was willing to pin the attack on two innocent people, testify against them, and send them to jail for something that never happened. Smollett has been charged with a felony over the Chicago police report, and the FBI is currently investigating that USPS end of the story.

All of that is terrible but, to me, the worst of it is the revelation that he was apparently willing to accuse two innocent people, until he found out the police had actually arrested his co-conspirators and he clammed up. That’s simply a terrifying level of sociopathic hubris. It’s also the chief indicator that he’s wholly deserving of whatever consequences may be headed his way.

Forget all of that, though. According to CNN’s Don Lemon, the real trouble facing Jussie Smollett is one of PR. Smollett, Lemon says, “lost the fight in the court of public opinion,” and it’s not his fault.

Yes, he’s really saying that:

Lemon went on to bemoan the fact that conservatives are going to “pounce.” The President – along with right-wing boogeymen like Hannity and Carlson – are going to “eat Jussie Smollett’s lunch” over the incident.

Woe. Woe to the lunch-eaters!

CNN’s Don Lemon panics over Jussie Smollett’s felony charge: “Sean Hannity is going to eat Jussie Smollett’s lunch every single second. Tucker Carlson is going to eat Jussie Smollett’s lunch every single second. The President of the United States is going to eat his lunch” pic.twitter.com/aYCQE9Y50J

— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) February 21, 2019

Now, no one’s going to accuse Don Lemon of being a great thinker. No one’s going to stand up and say, “That Don Lemon guy. There’s a fella with really good ideas.” But even by Lemon’s usual dismal standards, this line of thinking is utterly moronic.

Smollett isn’t “losing in the court of public opinion” because of a bad interview, an out-of-context remark, or even an ugly slip of the tongue. He’s losing in the court of reality because he allegedly committed multiple felonies. He staged a hate crime in pursuit of greater fame and bigger paychecks. Whether or not Lemon wants to admit it, that’s a big deal. It’s not a matter of “opinion.”

Smollett lied through his teeth, portrayed himself as a victim, was willing to have innocents incarcerated, and a laundry list of “woke” talking heads bought his story hook, line, and sinker.

I suspect Lemon’s incapable of feeling shame but, if that’s not the case, he should be ashamed of any effort to minimize Smollett’s behavior.

CNN host Don Lemon ran defense for Jussie Smollett on his show last night, claiming that it’s not the actor’s “fault” that he lost in the court of public opinion.

Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi announced that Smollett was “under arrest and in custody of detectives” this morning. His bail hearing is set for 1:30pm local time.

Smollett launched a media firestorm at the end of last month when he claimed he was assaulted by two individuals who shouted “this is MAGA country” and had a noose placed around his neck.

However, evidence soon emerged clearly suggesting Smollett had paid two Nigerian brothers who worked on the show Empire with him to stage the attack.

Despite some on the left deleting old tweets that signaled vehement support for Smollett and with others keen to avoid talking about the issue altogether, Don Lemon appeared to double down by absolving Smollett of blame.

During a segment on his show last night, the CNN host said Smollett had “lost the fight in the court of public opinion”.

“He lost that because of how – not his fault – maybe people were – I don’t know what they were saying to him, maybe because of his representatives, who knows – but it was handled poorly,” said Lemon.

CNN legal analyst Joey Jackson pushed back, commenting, “I don’t know if it’s not his fault, Don.”

“You think it’s his fault, you think he was doing what he wanted?” asked Lemon.

If the allegations are proven true, quite how anyone but Smollett himself is to blame for staging a hate crime which according to some could have kicked off racial violence in America is somewhat baffling.

Despite the overwhelming evidence against him, Smollett’s lawyers say they will “mount an aggressive defense,” with the actor potentially facing jail time.

Empire actor, Jussie Smollett turned himself in Thursday morning for being a suspect in his own hate crime. The actor is facing felony charges and the bond for his release is set at $100,000.

In late January, Smollett claimed to be a victim of a hate crime in Chicago where two male Trump supporters confronted him at 2am where they proceeded to wrap a noose around his neck and poor bleach on his face while shouting homophobic and racist slurs. Over the past three weeks, the Chicago law enforcement has been investigating the situation and have now stated that Smollett paid two friends to stage the attack on him.

SPECIAL OFFER: Free “Build The Wall” Coin – Just Cover Shipping!

Some politicians have been very vocal with condemning Smollet while some politicians, mostly on the Left, have stayed completely silent. Then there’s CNN who are actually questioning if Smollett is the one to blame in this situation:

Anchor Don Lemon, who said he identified with Smollett because he is also black and gay, was initially quite tough on the alleged hoaxer during his show Wednesday evening. However, Lemon also questioned if it was Smollett’s “fault” that he lied about the attack during an interview with “Good Morning America.”

“In the court of public opinion, Jussie has lost. He’s lost the fight in the court of public opinion, and that’s where his battle is,” Lemon said. “He lost that because of how — not his fault — people were, I don’t what they were saying to him. Maybe because of his representatives, who knows.”

Seriously? The only person who is to blame for Jussie Smollett’s actions is Smollett himself. The fact that Lemon is trying to defend Smollett is alarming considering the actors actions have created an even wider divide in America.

Lemon wasn’t the only radical Leftist to take to Smollett’s defense. Keith Boykin, a former aide to Bill Clinton, argued that Smollett’s actions fit the “climate” of America today.

It’s important to understand the climate we’re in in this country makes these things believable because of the fact when you have Nazis marching in Charlottesville, when you have hate crimes there on the rise, when you have attacks on black LGBTQ people and particularly black trans people on the rise, it’s understandable to people to think that.

Believable? The only people who actually believed the Smollett accusations in the first place were far Left Democrats who suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome. Nothing about his original story was at all believable. What Trump supporter walks through Chicago at 2am in negative four degree weather in their MAGA hats while carrying bleach and a noose with the intent of assaulting a gay black man? Hint: NOBODY.

Erin Burnett, another radical CNN anchor, not only took the opportunity to defend Smollett, but also took the opportunity to attack Trump.

“[People] are handling responsibly by reevaluating what they’re stating unlike Trump who never reevaluates anything and just completely doubles down on everything,” Boykin said, adding that Trump himself condemned the alleged attack.

PETITION: Tell Mueller To STOP Wasting Our Taxpayer Dollars On The Phony Russia Probe!

America is at a very dangerous point in history. The divide in this country seems to be getting worse because of how the media reacts to certain situations. Smollett’s actions were extremely divisive, but the way the media is handling the situation only makes it worse. Instead of defending Smollett and attacking Trump, the media needs to swallow their pride, and completely condemn the attack without relating it back to Trump.

Rank and file Chicago police officers are reportedly irate at the fact that actor Jussie Smollett is being treated with kid gloves by higher-ups.

According to Quillette journalist Andy Ngo, “the rank and file officers at CPD are angry at how their PR is coddling Smollett with comments like this.”

The comment in question came from Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi, who said last night that he understood the situation may be “difficult emotionally” for Smollett and that authorities wanted to “make this as diplomatic as possible”.

Source tells me that the rank and file officers at CPD are angry at how their PR is coddling Smollett with comments like this. He is wanted for a felony offense & his location remains unknown. https://t.co/0HXLNfVUuz pic.twitter.com/XgAnmKsBZn

— Andy Ngo (@MrAndyNgo) February 21, 2019

According to Ngo’s police sources, such kind treatment wouldn’t normally be reserved for someone who before his arrest this morning was wanted for a felony offense.

Others suggest that Smollett will only receive a “slap on the wrist” after he was charged with disorderly conduct for filing a false police report.

Anger is building at Smollett potentially avoiding jail time for the crime given that his alleged actions could have kicked off racial violence across America. A slap on the wrist would also embolden other leftists to risk staging their own hate crimes, knowing that the punishment if caught would be minimal.

As we reported earlier, CNN is still running defense for the Empire actor with host Don Lemon asserting that the entire debacle was not Smollett’s “fault”.

A U.S. Coast Guard lieutenant arrested last week on gun and drug charges is a white nationalist who apparently had a hit list of Democratic lawmakers and activists as well as prominent media personalities, federal prosecutors said Wednesday.

In a motion for pretrial detention filed in federal court in Baltimore, authorities said Lt. Christopher Paul Hasson was arrested Friday and charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and an opioid called Tramadol.

However, the filing described the charges as "the proverbial tip of the iceberg," and referred to Hasson as "a domestic terrorist" who meant to "murder innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen in this country."

The filing was first noted by researchers from George Washington University's Program on Extremism.

Prosecutors say Hasson regularly read a manifesto written by Anders Behring Breivik, a Norwegian far-right extremist who killed 77 people in a pair of 2011 terror attacks, and stockpiled weapons and ammunition. According to the documents, federal agents recovered 15 firearms and "conservatively" more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition from Hasson's "cramped basement apartment" in Silver Spring, Maryland.

According to the document, Hasson organized a spreadsheet of so-called "traitors" that he subdivided into three categories: A,B, and C. So-called "Category A" traitors included Democratic Sens. Chuck Schumer of New York, Tim Kaine of Virginia, Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut (referred to as "Sen blumen jew" in the spreadsheet), Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts (referred to as "poca warren") Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Cory Booker of New Jersey and Kamala Harris of California.

Also listed in "Category A" were House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Rep. Alexandria Oscasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., MSNBC personalities Joe Scarborough, Chris Hayes, and Ari Melber as well as CNN host Don Lemon. Names in the "Category B" list included Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., CNN personalities Chris Cuomo and Van Jones, and the Democratic Socialists of America.

Prosecutors say Hasson Googled topics including "what if trump illegally impeached," "best place in dc to see congress people," and "civil war if trump impeached" roughly a month before his arrest.

The filing said Hasson had "espoused extremist views for years" and quoted a letter he drafted to "a known American neo-Nazi leader" in September 2017, nearly two months after the deadly violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. In the letter, Hasson described himself as "a long time White Nationalist, having been a skinhead 30 plus years ago before my time in the military." Hasson added that "I fully support the idea of a white homeland ... We need a white homeland as Europe seems lost. How long we can hold out there and prevent n-----ization of the Northwest until whites wake up on their own or are forcibly made to make a decision whether to roll over and die and to stand up remains to be seen."

Three months earlier, prosecutors say Hasson drafted an email to "friends" in which he said he was "dreaming of a way to kill almost every last person on the earth. I think a plague would be most successful but how to I acquire the needed/ Spanish flu, botulism, anthrax not sure yet but will find something."

In the same email, Hasson mused: "Start with biological attacks followed by attack [sic] on food supply ... Two pronged [sic] attack seems it might before successful. Institute a bombing/sniper campaign."

Prosecutors said Hasson was an acquisitions officer for the National Security Cutter Acquisition Program who had been assigned to the Coast Guard's headquarters in Washington since June 2016. He previously served in the Marine Corps and the Army National Guard.

A detention hearing for Hasson is scheduled for 1 p.m. Thursday.

Former US Navy SEAL, Ephraim Mattos, has responded to comments made this week by Don Lemon on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time.

After surviving three wars, a gunshot wound, a near fatal drowning, a failed parachute, Taliban ambushes, ISIS snipers, mortars... I have now returned home to the USA where a CNN host has labeled me as a radicalized right wing terrorist simply because of my gender and the color of my skin.

Former US Navy SEAL, Ephraim Mattos, has responded to comments made this week by Don Lemon on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time.

“We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them.” — Don Lemon on CNN (October 29, 2018)

Here is Mattos’ response:

After surviving three wars, a gunshot wound, a near fatal drowning, a failed parachute, Taliban ambushes, ISIS snipers, mortars, mine-fields, suicide bombers and laying down my life for the cause of freedom while fighting shoulder-to-shoulder with my brother Arabs, Asians, Blacks, Hispanics, Christians, Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Animists, and Atheists, I have now returned home to the USA where a CNN host has labeled me as a radicalized right wing terrorist simply because of my gender and the color of my skin.

I represent just one of the hundreds of thousands of conservative white men who have fought to preserve freedom in this great Nation and in other nations. My forefathers are the 3% who founded this Republic against the might of the British Army. It was white Conservative men who died by the tens of thousands after charging into our southern states to free our black brothers from the slavery imposed on them by the Liberal left. We were the ones who acknowledged that women have a right to vote. We held the line in WWI and charged the beaches of Normandy in WWII. We have fought for freedom and liberty for generations and we continue to do so today alongside all of our brothers and sisters regardless of their race or religion.

In the early 1930s, Hitler said the same thing about the Jews that Don Lemon of CNN just said about white men. This is the true face of the Democratic Party. First they enslaved and killed blacks, and now they use them to spew hatred and lies against the very people who have fought for generations to free them and uplift them.

Remember that when you go to vote.

One final thought: To make a point, I have referred to myself as a “white male” in the previous sentences multiple times, but I must make it clear that I identify as simply “American,” not as “white” or “male” or “Republican.”

Although blatantly racist and hateful, do not let Don Lemon’s ignorant words drive you into viewing yourself only by your race and religion. Identity politics does not lead to freedom. It only leads to hatred and division and an “us vs. them” mentality.

If CNN does not fire Don Lemon immediately, it only goes to show that they are truly the “enemy of the people.”

— Ephraim Mattos, Former US Navy SEAL

Mattos teamed up with New York Times bestselling author Scott McEwen (American Sniper) to write the new book, City of Death: Humanitarian Warriors in the Battle of Mosul — released October 23rd from Center Street / Hachette Book Group.

In City of Death, Mattos recounts in vivid detail what he saw and felt on the frontlines of the war on ISIS. While volunteering with the Free Burma Rangers, Mattos evacuated the wounded, conducted rescue missions, and at times fought shoulder-to-shoulder with the Iraqi Army against ISIS. Filled with raw and emotional descriptions of what it's like to come face-to-face with death, this is the harrowing and uplifting true story of a small group of men who risked everything to save the lives of the Iraqi people and who followed the credence, "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

Until being shot by ISIS on a suicidal rescue mission, Mattos witnessed unexplainable acts of courage and sacrifice by the Free Burma Rangers, who, while under heavy machine gun and mortar fire, assaulted across ISIS minefields, used themselves as human shields, and sprinted down ISIS-infested streets - all to retrieve wounded civilians.

The moment Mattos was shot was actually captured on video. Watch it here: https://youtu.be/3P0pZvn22xk

Former Texas Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke said Thursday that he would "absolutely" support tearing down existing barriers along the southern border with Mexico, in a full-throated embrace of open-borders rhetoric that has left conservatives wondering where other potential 2020 Democratic White House hopefuls stand on the issue.

O'Rourke's comments came as the House and Senate passed a compromise spending bill that would partially fund President Trump's proposed border wall, to the tune of $1.4 billion. Trump, who had been pressing for billions more, has vowed to declare a national state of emergency to fund the remainder of the project.

Amid the congressional debate, Texas GOP Rep. Dan Crenshaw wrote on Twitter earlier Thursday that he wanted O'Rourke to answer a simple question: "If you could snap your fingers and make El Paso’s border wall disappear, would you?" He cited Department of Homeland Security (DHS) figures suggesting that illegal border crossings dropped sharply in El Paso following the construction of a wall there.

WHAT'S IN THE BILL PASSED BY CONGRESS THURSDAY NIGHT? MORE DETENTION BEDS FOR ICE, MONEY FOR WALL

MSNBC host Chris Hayes posed a version of that question to O'Rourke on-air: "Would you, if you could, would you take the wall down here -- knock it down?"

"Yes, absolutely," answered O'Rourke, who is widely thought to be a potential candidate in 2020 but has not formally announced his intention to run. "I'd take the wall down."

Asked whether El Paso residents would support that move in a referendum, O'Rourke replied, "I do."

He continued: "Here's what we know. After the Secure Fence Act [of 2006], we have built 600 miles of wall and fencing on a 2,000-mile border. What that has done is not in any demonstrable way made us safer. It's cost us tens of billions of dollars to build and maintain. And it's pushed migrants and asylum seekers and refugees to the most inhospitable, the most hostile stretches of the U.S.-Mexico border, ensuring their suffering and death."

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and other Democrats, including then-Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, supported the Secure Fence Act of 2006, which authorized the construction of some 700 miles of fencing at the border. As of 2015, virtually all of that fencing had been completed, according to government figures.

"More than 4,000 human beings, little kids, women and children, have died," O'Rourke continued. "They're not in cages, they're not locked up, they're not separated -- they're dead, over the last 10 years, as we have walled off their opportunity to legally petition for asylum, to cross in urban centers like El Paso, to be with family, to work jobs, to do what any human being should have a right to be able to do, what we would do if faced with the same circumstances they were."

In response, Trump's 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, asked on Twitter whether other possible or declared Democratic White House hopefuls agreed.

Earlier this month, Trump challenged House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has called the White House's proposed southern border wall "an immorality," to explain why she is not insisting on the removal of existing physical barriers, or opposing ongoing construction of new wall projects near San Diego.

"If Nancy Pelosi thinks that Walls are 'immoral,' why isn’t she requesting that we take down all of the existing Walls between the U.S. and Mexico, even the new ones just built in San Diego at their very strong urging," Trump tweeted. "Let millions of unchecked 'strangers' just flow into the U.S."

Some progressives in Congress, including Democratic Texas Rep. Veronica Escobar, insisted this month that "we know walls don't work." Escobar, signaling she may support removing some barriers, called walls "ugly" and "monuments to division."

The San Diego Union-Tribune has reported that physical barriers, including walling and fencing, encompass some 46 miles of the city's 60-mile border with Mexico. In February, construction is slated to begin on 14 miles of additional secondary walling, with work to begin on 15 miles of replacement wall this summer.

Earlier this month, in an interview with CNN, Democratic California Rep. Juan Vargas acknowledged that those physical defenses were effective and enhanced security for local residents.

"I mean, you go to the border and you see long lines of people waiting to come in. ... So we do have a problem of having huge wait lines to come in,” Vargas told anchor Don Lemon. “You know, there is fencing already there, to be honest with you. There are places where we already have fencing where it made sense for some security.”

O'Rourke's comments to MSNBC on Thursday, however, were the most stark anti-wall comments yet by a prominent Democrat -- and set up another potential confrontation between Trump and the progressive star. On Monday night, Trump held a campaign-style rally in El Paso — just as O'Rourke led a border wall protest roughly a half-mile away.

“He was doing what is a right to all Americans, to peacefully protest,” Lemon said. “And yet, and still, he is suffering the consequences of that after he broke no laws, and he’s trying to help out the very community that he’s trying to bring attention to.”

The host said the narrative surrounding Keapernick had been “twisted” by President Trump, but people should still know “in the back of their minds, deep in their heart” that what the former San Francisco 49er did was “courageous and heroic.”

When Chris Cuomo asked if this was a case of “white privilege,” Lemon responded that he thought it was “ignorance.”

“Look, I don’t know about it. I just think it’s ignorance. I just think it’s B.S.," he said. "Whatever you want to call it, if you want to call it white privilege, that is your business.”

The state legislature’s black caucus had drafted the resolution to include Kaepernick’s name, but Republicans said he was too controversial and took him off the list. The resolution, without Kaepernick's name, passed in the state Senate.

Newt Gingrich called out Don Lemon the other day and accused him of being hostile to America.

Don Lemon, never known for shying away from controversy, is firing back today at the former Speaker. From The Hill:

CNN anchor Don Lemon fired back at former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R) after Gingrich said Lemon was “hostile to America.”

Gingrich on Tuesday tweeted that Lemon was “hostile to America” after he pressed singer Gladys Knight on her decision to sing the national anthem at Sunday’s Super Bowl.

Lemon responded to Gingrich on Friday, writing that he was breaking his “rule of not responding to Twitter trolls” in doing so.

“Ms. Knight, who I greatly admire & have interviewed before, was well aware of the anthem controversy & chose to speak with me about it,” Lemon wrote.

“Not asking her about it would have been a dereliction of journalistic integrity,” he continued. “We can respect someone, ask tough questions & hold them to account. It’s the American way. Republicans, lately, should try it.”

Knight sparked criticism with her decision to sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl amid controversy surrounding the event.

Many artists chose to boycott the Super Bowl in response to the NFL’s treatment of former player Colin Kaepernick, who sparked the movement of players kneeling in protest during the national anthem to protest police brutality.

Coast Guard Lieutenant Accused of Threats Detained

A Coast Guard lieutenant accused of being a white supremacist who stockpiled guns and compiled a target list of prominent Democrats will remain detained in federal custody after his arrest.

Federal Magistrate Judge Charles Day ordered 49-year-old Christopher Paul Hasson held Thursday but said he might be willing to reconsider later if the government hasn't charged him with more serious crimes in the next two weeks.

The U.S Attorney for Maryland, Robert Hur, told reporters outside the courthouse Thursday that the sheer number and force of the weapons recovered from Hasson's residence, coupled with the disturbing nature of his writings, "appear to reflect a very significant threat to the safety of our community," particularly given the position of trust that Hasson held with the U.S. government.

Hasson's defense attorney said the government made a histrionic characterization by filing inflammatory document to attract media attention and pressure the court to assure detention. His lawyer said Hasson is not a danger to the community, has no criminal record, has served the military for 28 years and is a good husband and father who should be with his family pending trial.

(Published Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2019)

Hasson was arrested Friday on gun and drug charges, but prosecutors say those offenses are the "proverbial tip of the iceberg."

In a court filing, prosecutors say Hasson has espoused extremist views for years and drafted an email in which he said he was "dreaming of a way to kill almost every last person on the earth."

In a draft of a letter apparently intended for a known white supremacist leader, Hasson identified himself as a white nationalist for more than 30 years who advocated “focused violence” to create a “white homeland,” according to charging documents.

Prosecutors say federal agents found 15 firearms and more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition inside Hasson's Silver Spring, Maryland, apartment.

Prosecutors wrote Hasson is a domestic terrorist who “intends to murder innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen in this country” and must be detained.

They say internet searches show he was targeting top Democrats and created an Excel spreadsheet list of names, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, Sens. Tim Kaine, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Richard Blumenthal, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke. The list also included top names in media, like MSNBC’s Chris Hayes and Joe Scarborough and CNN’s Don Lemon.

(Published 4 hours ago)

"I feel very, very confident that our law enforcement at the federal and local levels is on top of these things and making sure all of us whose names were on the list are safe,” Schumer said.

Law enforcement sources told NBC News the feds caught on to Hasson because of searches made on his computer at Coast Guard headquarters in Washington, D.C.

He is accused of searching the following phrases on Google the morning of Jan. 17: “what if trump illegally impeached,” “best place in dc to see congress people,” “where in dc to congress people live,” “civil war if trump impeached” and “social democrats usa.”

His search history also included searches for pro-Russian and neo-fascist literature.

Hasson routinely read portions of a manifesto written by Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik that prosecutors said instructs would-be assailants to collect firearms, food, disguises and survival tools, court papers said. Breivik, a right-wing extremist, is serving a 21-year sentence for killing 77 people in a 2011 bomb-and-shooting rampage.

What Lemon and Cuomo are trying to do to the MAGA hat is the same thing the enemedia at large has done to the counter-jihad resistance for years. They associate it with something that is evil, something that it has nothing to do with, and then demand that others shun it on the basis of that association. The idea that wanting America to prosper and be strong — be great again — is some kind of code for racism or hatred is ridiculous on its face, unless you’re a leftist ideologue bent on destroying President Trump and everyone who supports him. And that’s what Lemon and Cuomo are.

“Is it OK to wear a MAGA hat in public? Of course it is, you Lemon,” by Tom Rogan, Washington Examiner, February 1, 2019 (thanks to Mark):

My ears perk up when a senior American journalist starts his argument with the caveat, “I think people should be able to wear whatever they want, but …”

But that’s exactly how CNN host Don Lemon began a discussion with fellow host Chris Cuomo on Thursday evening. The two journalists were discussing the decision of a California chef, J. Kenji Lopez-Alt, to ban MAGA or “Make America Great Again” hat wearers from his restaurant. The journalists offered some troubling arguments.

First off, let’s be clear: As a legal rule, Lopez-Alt has the right to deny entry to MAGA hat wearers. He is a private owner of a place of public accommodation and can thus exclude anyone he wishes unless he does so on the basis of their color, race, religion, or nationality.

A quick aside: I believe a gentleman ought not wear a hat indoors, especially in a restaurant. This is a basic rule of British etiquette, but unfortunately one that is ignored by too many in our great nation (including my grandfather).

But Cuomo and Lemon made this a broader discussion: Ought we shun people who wear MAGA hats? Are they guilty of some offense against decency?

Cuomo is convinced MAGA hat wearers must yield to opponents. Referencing Lopez-Alt’s ban, Cuomo explains, “This isn’t so much about whether he has the right, it’s about whether or not it is right. And here’s my problem on this issue. Ordinarily I’d go down the line, look, be bigger than that. But I don’t want to fall into the trap of underselling the significance of the trigger of the expression to people. I think the more appropriate analogy to say is if people were wearing shirts in that said, ‘I hate black people,’ would he be okay to say, ‘Don’t come into my place with that’? And I think most people would say, ‘Yeah.’ That’s how people like [Lopez-Alt] see the MAGA hat. So does that make it okay? I think that’s the right question.”

To assert that “Make America Great Again” is an equivalent sentiment to “I hate black people” is, in my mind, absurd. A MAGA hat says nothing more about its wearer than “I support President Trump or some significant element of his platform.” And the scale of MAGA hat wearing necessarily means that there is a significant portion of otherwise law-abiding pleasant people wearing that hat. Trump’s approval rating remains above 35 percent of the adult population. That’s tens of millions of people who might wear the MAGA hat. How many of these believe in the most exclusionary elements of Trump’s rhetoric? I would venture a marginal few. That denies the rationality of any inferred implication of inherent MAGA offensiveness.

Don Lemon offered a similarly concerning interpretation of the MAGA hat. “Your clothing tells a story,” Lemon continued, “Maybe [the MAGA hat] means birtherism to people … maybe it means Mexicans are rapists to people … and so you cannot erase those things from the story of that hat … It just can’t be about what you want it to be about. There are symbols and things in society that you have to take as a whole.”

Compare Lemon’s contention that the MAGA hat “just can’t be about what you want it to be about” and Cuomo’s fear that he not “fall into the trap of underselling the significance of the trigger of the expression to people.” Here we enter a dangerous political territory. After all, I would suggest it is fundamentally counter to the American political tradition to chill one’s wearing of popular clothing simply because you fear that others not wearing it might not share your view as to what the wearing means….

Ever since the media distorted the confrontation between Catholic high school students wearing red MAGA hats and a Native American activist into an all-out attack on Trump supporters, the talking heads have engaged in some of the most shameless race-baiting ever seen on television.

It didn’t take very long for the narrative that the MAGA hats are akin to the white hoods of the Ku Klux Klan to be ginned up in a brazen attempt to stigmatize ordinary Americans exercising their right to political speech as white supremacists and even as the Covington Catholic story was exposed as more fake news, the left continues to hammer the racist angle.

READER POLL: Are you still in favor of the BORDER WALL?

That’s what CNN’s Chris Cuomo did when he and the ferocious race-obsessed crank Don Lemon said that those who are sporting MAGA hats may as well be wearing shirts that are inscribed with “I hate black people” in yet another new low for a network that continues to plumb new depths.

The segment was slyly built around the story about the California chef who had banned those wearing MAGA hats into his eatery but Cuomo and Lemon only used that as a pretense for their own vile race-baiting commentary.

CHECK IT OUT:

What CNN never does is to put out a disclaimer that identifies Cuomo as the brother of New York’s socialist demagogue governor Andrew Cuomo, a man who just cheered the state’s monstrous new abortion laws which amount to infanticide.

Were CNN an honest purveyor of news and information, there would be a chyron that tips views off to the fact that he is a dishonest political hack.

Get Your “Build The Wall” Coin For 50% Off And We’ll Send Nancy Pelosi A Foam Brick!

The embittered and possibly deranged Lemon was quick to chime in that the hats represent:

“The Central Park five,” “birtherism,” and “Mexicans are rapists”

All of which are thinly veiled and rewarmed talking points that have been used against Trump.

The most sinister aspect is that since the left has been unable to do anything that has been effective against the president that they so despise that this marks a shift in tactics toward fomenting hate against those who would vote to reelect him through intimidation and social shaming.

CNN is totally out of control and sooner or later, incendiary rhetoric like this could have major consequences.

About the last thing you ever thought would happen is seeing a CNN host fighting for the border wall, taking on Pelosi, Schumer, and Don Lemon. You will be more surprised when you hear who it is. It’s the NY governor’s brother, Chris Cuomo. He says the reason he came to be of that opinion is that he spoke to Border Patrol agents and their superiors, and that’s what they say they need badly. Cuomo is also harshly criticizing Democrats like Pelosi and Schumer, who won’t negotiate at all.

CNN host Chris Cuomo criticized Democrats for their part in the ongoing clash with Republicans and President Donald Trump on border wall funding.

Appearing briefly on “CNN Tonight With Don Lemon” Wednesday night, Cuomo took particular aim at Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s refusal to budget a single dollar toward wall funding. He also expressed his agreement with and his belief in the “men and women who keep us safe” who say they need more border barriers.

“I have no problem with that assessment,” Cuomo said, responding to Lemon’s claim that Trump’s rhetoric on the wall is “all B.S.” The CNN host lamented the “binary nature” of the debate, with both sides seemingly on each extreme, before stating that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s “dollar” comment puts Democrats “in a hole.”

Look, here’s the reality. You’ve got barriers along that thing all over the place. They need more. I believe the men and women who keep us safe and their assessment that barriers help and they need more of it. So the Democrats should say, “Fine. More barriers. Okay. Let’s talk about where, how much and why,” not, “No wall, not a dollar for your damn wall.” Don’t say that because you don’t mean it and it puts you in a hole.

Failure to enhance security along the roughly 2,000 mile porous southern border with Mexico perpetuates the illicit trafficking of children and women by criminal cartels.

Fox New’s Contributor Sara Carter and CEO of Operation Underground Railroad Tim Ballard described the horrors of human slavery and trafficking in graphic detail on Fox News’ Laura Ingram Thursday. They disputed claims by some media anchors who said President Trump’s descriptions of woman being trafficked was over-exaggerated and a “sham excuse” for a border wall.

“The Ingraham Angle” tackled the very difficult subject of child sex trafficking, an issue Ballard, a former special agent with the Department of Homeland Security, has been bringing to light since establishing his non-profit.

Operation Underground Railroad was established by Ballard to work alongside international partners and rescue children from criminal trafficking organizations.

“Nobody out there is defending the victims without a voice” Carter told Ingraham. She was responding to a montage of media clips from CNN to NBC that accused President Trump of over exaggerating his statements about women and children being trafficked.

Trump signed the “Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act” last month, furthering an administration initiative to fight a worldwide human trafficking. Moreover, the the legislation is aimed at tackling the $150 billion industry and curtailing human slavery , estimated at 30 million people worldwide.

Trump explained recently that America’s porous borders contribute to the human trafficking crisis. He’s right, said Ballard and Carter.

“We’re talking about, in many cases, women and children grabbed, thrown into the backseat of a car, or thrown into a van with no windows, with no — any form of air. Tape put across their mouths,” said Trump, painting a picture of the gruesome reality.

“And they’re brought across the border,” he added. “And they don’t go through checkpoints; they go through the emptiest spot they can find, with no walls, with no fences.”

Rachel Maddow, Don Lemon and others, however, were quick to jump on Trump, saying the president gets his information from overly dramatic movies and not reality.

What happens to victims is far worse than “what you see in Sicario,” said Ballard, referencing the recent film depicting the tragedy of human trafficking and drug cartels.

Carter described her encounter with a victim of child sex trafficking.

In 2014, “there was a young 14 year old girl sitting off alone, she was so distraught, she had been harmed, they told me she had been raped.”

“I can’t even imagine that anybody would even joke about this” said Carter, whose spent the majority of her career covering the U.S. Mexico Border.

On Tuesday Border Patrol Agents arrested a convicted sex offender at the El Centro Sector near the Calexico Port of Entry.

In 2007 the suspect was convicted for Felony Child Molestation in the state of Georgia. In 2011 the suspect was released and deported back to Mexico. The suspect also served two years in prison for Felony Abduction & Kidnapping in the state of Virginia in 1999. In FY 2019, Border Patrol Agents have arrested seven convicted sex offenders at the El Centro Sector alone.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo stunned everyone this week and dismantled House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s argument against President Donald Trump’s border wall.

During a segment Wednesday on “CNN Tonight With Don Lemon,” Cuomo went after Pelosi over her refusal to offer a single dollar toward wall funding.

POLL: Are you still in favor of the BORDER WALL?

Cuomo also spoke highly of the “men and women who keep us safe,” referring to border patrol agents who say they need more border barriers.

“Look, here’s the reality. You’ve got barriers along that thing all over the place. They need more,” Cuomo said.

“I believe the men and women who keep us safe and their assessment that barriers help and they need more of it,” he added.

Cuomo went on to suggest that Democrats should say, “Fine. More barriers. Okay. Let’s talk about where, how much and why,” not, “No wall, not a dollar for your damn wall.”

“When someone says it, say, well, that was already in the works,” CNN host Don Lemon interjected. “That is part of deals that were made years and decades ago.”

“That’s what we were doing, and we will continue to do that, and we can make it better. But we should not sit here and pretend that there have been no efforts in the past to build a barrier on the southern border,” Lemon added.

“I agree,” responded Cuomo. “But the Democrats put themselves in a hole when they say no money for the wall.”

“They’re not giving themselves credit for the money they have put in, for what is really the wall, for the fencing. So there’s politics at play on both sides, but the president put us in a shutdown. He pushed it too far,” he added.

This is not the first time Cuomo has rebuked Pelosi over the wall and her refusal to strike any meaningful deal with Trump over border barriers.

Earlier this month, Cuomo dominated headlines when he argued that there needed to be more barriers on the southern border between the United States and Mexico.

“Let’s just get something straight for the audience right now because this is one of those things that’s literally been bothering me — almost ruined my vacation,” Cuomo asserted. “There is a barrier system all along the southern border. They need more.”

“Anybody who does the reporting, anybody who talks to the people down there doing the work — the men and women — they need more of what the president is increasingly describing as his own idea for a bollard fence,” Cuomo added.

Cuomo savaging Pelosi comes after Trump signed a continuing resolution to fund the government through February 15.

The federal government will be open for three weeks until the next deadline approaches, which will give Trump and Democrats time to reach a compromise on allocating at least $5 billion in wall funding.

If not, Trump has said he will declare a national emergency.

On Wednesday, CNN host Don Lemon criticized President Donald Trump’s light work-schedule.

After Trump tweeted insults about his top Intel chiefs, Lemon wondered why he has so much extra time on his hands.

“While this president is mad at just about everybody, what is he doing?” Lemon said. “What is he doing? Think about it. Looks like he’s having a whole lot of executive time behind closed doors in the White House. Today, was the fifth day in a row without a public appearance by the president.”

He then showed a picture of Trump’s official White House schedule.

“His schedule so far this week, pretty light. Take a look at it. The official schedule released by the White House shows the president has had two meetings this week. Two. Two,” he repeated.

“One was a lunch meeting with Vice President Mike Pence on Monday. The other was that intelligence briefing this morning. In a late addition to his schedule on Monday night, the president attended a fundraiser at his own Trump international hotel, also with the vice president. That event closed to the press,” Lemon said.

“We also learned that the president spoke today with the interim president of Venezuela. But there are still hours and hours and hours of time unaccounted for,” he said.

It prompted Lemon to wonder what the leader of the free world is doing with all of his extra time.

“With so little on his schedule? No official way for anyone to know how this president spends his days,” he continued.

He then said that the only way people can track Trump’s schedule is through his Twitter feed.

“Unofficially, though, there is Twitter. We know this president tweets from early morning until late at night. But I want you to remember, remember during the 2016 campaign, then-candidate Trump said he was going to work really, really hard,” he said.

Republican strategist and political commentator Rick Wilson mocked supporters of President Donald Trump amid the battle for funding for the border wall.

Now 13 days into the partial government shutdown, it appears both President Trump and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) are standing firm with their positions as he won’t sign any bill that doesn’t include border funding while she insists there will be no money for what she calls an “immoral” wall.

Wilson, who has been an outspoken critic of the president, went after him, and his supporters, during a CNN panel.

“The wall has always been a con for Donald Trump’s credulous rube 10-toothed base. The wall has always been a scam. It has always been a lie. Nothing about the wall has ever been real and Donald Trump knows it,” Wilson told CNN anchor Don Lemon. “He is a guy who has a long history in his career as being a conman. He is conning these people who believe he’s going to build a 2,000-mile 30-foot high concrete wall with laser moats and alligators in it. It’s just crazy and always has been. And yet the suspend their disbelief because they believe so strongly in Donald Trump.”

“It’s an insult to their intelligence, but obviously it seems to work with his base because they believe it over and over again, that nothing will stop the brown horde except the wall,” Wilson added.

After the panel mocked Trump’s "Game of Thrones" meme by pointing out that a wall didn’t work in the popular HBO series, Wilson joked that the wall is going to end up being the “freedom ditch.”

The “Everything Trump Touches Dies” author blasted the president on Wednesday, saying Trump spends his mornings “hoovering up rails of Adderall and rage tweeting.”

Wilson's comments drew the ire of some.

“That this radioactive zero is still taken seriously by CNN speaks volumes about their network," political pundit Dan Bongino tweeted in response. "This epic failure of a human being is a disgrace to the disgraceful and the mention of his name should only be met with immediate ridicule.”

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo accused President Donald Trump of playing “favorites when it comes to bigotry” after Trump failed to denounce Rep. Steve King’s defense of white supremacy this month, but chose to defend the Covington Catholic students after their confrontation with Native American activists on Friday.

“The president poached this position and he ignored Steve King,” Cuomo said, referencing Trump looking the other way after King asked why white nationalism and supremacy are controversial ideas. “You have to see that for what it is. It doesn’t make any sense except the most obvious sense. He plays favorites when it comes to bigotry.”

CNN’s Don Lemon, who was discussing last weekend’s Abraham Lincoln Memorial incident during the hour hand-off segment between the two hosts, agreed with Cuomo, adding that Trump is guilty of “political expediency [when it comes] to bigotry.

Later in the segment, Cuomo asked Trump supporters “to explain to themselves why does he ignore Steve King, and then on MLK weekend, he decides to poach and play favorites like this in this situation as president of the United States.”

“It’s a bad look,” he added. “It’s a bad reality.

As for the infamous “Make America Great Again” hat worn by the Covington Catholic High School student who faced off with the indigenous elder, Lemon said the apparel’s message speaks for itself.

“You got to own [the MAGA hat]. The kids have a right to wear the MAGA hat, but you also have a responsibility as an American to be aware,” Lemon said. “Own it. You’re saying build that wall. That’s what that MAGA hat says. At a minimum.”

“Don’t pretend that it’s some just innocent thing,” the host continued. “You know what that hat says.”

The two hosts also admitted to media mistakes during the early coverage of the face-off between the pro-life Catholic students and the Native American demonstrators.

CNN host Don Lemon on Tuesday evening ripped the Covington Catholic High School chaperones for not educating the students about why Make America Great Again baseball caps trigger “marginalized people.”

“OK. The MAGA hat, the MAGA hat carries a certain connotation that provokes a conditioned reaction from many people. Especially from marginalized people,” Lemon said. “For example, Pocahontas, right? This was a Native American. Their chaperone should be keenly aware of that. Those kids should know that. And let’s say that the kids didn’t know that because they are kids. Their chaperones should be responsible enough to educate them. After all, they are students.”

CNN host Chris Cuomo said he did not understand why Covington Catholic allowed their students to wear MAGA hats to DC because “wearing the MAGA hat would have still been a violation of endorsing a political position.”

“And I think if the kids don’t have the hats on their heads, you have a very different situation in terms of how it’s perceived,” Cuomo said.

Cuomo also revealed that Lemon educated him about why MAGA hats provoke conditioned reactions from “marginalized” people: “And you and I talked about this. I don’t know if you remember. It means something different to you than it does to me, fool. You’re not part of the group that he’s isolating about it all the time. You don’t see it the way I see it.”

“And I heard that from so many people after that. And my eyes weren’t open to it,” Cuomo added. “Then they became open to it.”

After fake news spread over the weekend about the supposed “confrontation” between the Covington Catholic High School students and Native American activist Nathan Phillips, left-wing activists and Hollywood celebrities when into overdrive comparing MAGA hats to KKK hoods.

At this point the only difference between a MAGA hat and a KKK hood is that for some reason society tolerates one being worn in public.

A MAGA hat is just a Klan hood that was made in China.

The red MAGA hat is the new white hood.

CNN has become the laughing stock of modern entertainment news for their recent gross negligence in properly vetting a #FakeNews BuzzFeed story, has once again done something newsworthy, but again for the wrong reasons.

As reported by The Daily Caller, CNN’s John King asked his panel if second lady Karen Pence should receive her taxpayer-provided accommodations, like housing and Secret Service protection, after deciding to work as a part-time art teacher at a Christian school.

His panel was made of up Karoun Demirjian, Julie Pace and Olivier Knox.

Pace began the discussion by saying, “I think it’s somewhat unsurprising coming from them.

They have really been backed by the evangelical community she continued, that is who they view as their base.

“This is also very personal for them she stated, This is their core beliefs.”

“When you use your core beliefs in this kind of public way, obviously it does open yourself up to criticism, and I think the Pences might be a little naive to think that wouldn’t happen if she is going to make this decision. It’s interesting to me they made no attempt to get ahead of it,” she continued. “They made this announcement that she would be working at the school and then saw the backlash come a couple days later.”

“Does it matter that all taxpayers pay for her housing, all taxpayers pay for her Secret Service protection? It’s not her fault she needs protection, that’s the world we live in. But all taxpayers pay for – subsidize her life. Does it matter?” King asked.

The media was in total meltdown mode on Friday night after what was clearly an orchestrated push for President Trump’s impeachment turned into a blazing dumpster fire.

Damage control efforts began immediately following the stunning rebuke from special counsel Robert Mueller’s office that totally destroyed bottom-feeding news site BuzzFeed’s scoop that Trump had ordered former attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress.

With impeachment fever raging and Chuck and Nancy steaming over their badly botched government shutdown, the entire media has hammering the BuzzFeed piece in the opening salvo of what would be a sustained propaganda storm leading up to Cohen’s nationally televised testimony before Congress next month.

Mueller’s rare statement came out of nowhere and like a lightning bolt sent by God himself, delivered a mighty smiting to the paid liars in the media and especially at the self-proclaimed “most trusted name in news” which has been at the tip of the spear of the information war against the duly elected president.

CNN’s ace race-baiter Don Lemon was absolutely beside himself and was in another emotional tizzy as he shushed anyone who dared to bring up the thoroughly debunked BuzzFeed piece.

The wheels are clearly coming off the clown car now and the BuzzFeed debacle is going to do longterm damage to the credibility of the anti-Trump media and their 24/7 brainwashing operations.

This latest dumpster fire has completely exposed the role of Ben Smith’s sensationalist bottom-feeding website that acts as the launching pad for the scurrilous garbage that then gets picked up by CNN and other major media outlets, it’s called circular reporting.

Remember too that BuzzFeed was the original source of the dirty dossier story and its lurid tales of peeing prostitutes that has served as the basis for the investigations into Trump despite being completely discredited – this one may be the story that makes it radioactive in terms of doing CNN’s dirty work.

Someone get Don Lemon a box of Kleenex and a nice stuffed animal to hug, he really looks like he needs it.

“People want you to think this is Watergate,” Levin began. “There’s only one problem with this, folks,” he continued. “We don’t have any information.”

Levin called for an investigation into the source of the continuing Department of Justice leaks.

“If, in fact, either of these so-called reporters for BuzzFeed saw documents … now where would those documents be?” he added. “They would be with Mr. Mueller and his people, in Mueller’s office.”

“Mr. Whitaker and Mr. Rosenstein and the director of the FBI must now trigger a leak investigation. Find who the criminals are in Mr. Mueller’s office, if it’s not Mr. Mueller himself,” Levin continued.

Fake news CNN is at it yet again. This time lecturing President Trump’s supporters about racism.

CNN’s favorite golden boy Don Lemon spent the majority of his show lecturing the American voting base claiming that President Trump’s voters are “Overlooking Racism.”

Lemon continued to question Trump supporters on why they keep supporting President Trump when his racism is “personal and even deadly,” Lemon Said.

“I know people who support Donald Trump, they’re not bigots, but for people who look like me, other minorities, women who have–well, let’s just leave this to race,” he said at the beginning of his show.

“This president has said and done so many insensitive, and bigoted, and racist things, that if you support for him–if you support him, people like me want to understand why you ignored so much in order to support this man,” he continued. “You may not think you’re a racist. Maybe–I don’t know if you are. I don’t think, you know, every Trump supporter is a racist.”

So there you have it, if you support President Donald Trump, you’re a racist according to CNN host Don Lemon.

“But you certainly had to overlook racism and bigotry in order to make that decision. Now, then, maybe you made that decision in the voting booth, and then, now, even after all of this, if you still, in your mind, can support this person, why the hell are you overlooking racism so much?”

“It is personal and even deadly to people like me. That is important,” Lemon said.

This isn’t the first time that Don Lemon has made disastrous remarks for the network. not long ago he delivered this beauty.

“So, we have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right,” he said.

“And we have to start doing something about them. There is no travel ban on them. There is no ban on — they had the Muslim ban. There is no white guy ban. So, what do we do about that?”

I can speak for all Trump supporters, but Don Lemon can kiss my ass. Those are the facts. I’m no racist, I’m an American. I believe in putting America First!

CNN host Don Lemon on Tuesday evening wondered why so many of President Donald Trump’s supporters overlook his “racism” that Lemon said is “personal” and “even deadly” to people like himself.

Lemon and host Chris Cuomo were discussing former Ohio Governor John Kasich’s comments about how most people who voted for Trump are not bigots.

“But for people who look like me, other minorities, women who have–well, let’s just leave this to race, this president has said and done so many insensitive and bigoted and racist things that… if you support him, people like me want to understand why you ignored so much in order to support this man,” Lemon said. “You may not think you’re a racist. Maybe–I don’t know if you are. I don’t think, you know, every Trump supporter is a racist. But you certainly had to overlook racism and bigotry in order to make that decision.”

Lemon, who has called Trump a racist numerous times and last year declared that it was “obligation” to call out Trump’s racism, wondered why Trump voters are still overlooking his racism after his first two years in office.

“Now, then, maybe you made that decision in the voting booth. And then, now, even after all of this, if you still, in your mind, can support this person, why the hell are you overlooking racism so much?” Lemon asked. “It is personal and even deadly to people like me.”

Chris Cuomo seemed beside himself tonight on his show showing disappointment in Special Counsel Robert Mueller slamming the media.

Never in the history of these United States has there been such hate-filled persons as these leftists in the media and Democrat Party. By their own words and actions, they show themselves not worthy of being Americans.

They have such all-consuming hate of President Trump and all US Citizens who voted him into office they are blinded to reality. These hateful persons truly are unhinged; they are mentally unstable. They are also trying to tear apart OUR Constitutional Republic from within. These leftists are not by any description Americans.

“Mueller didn’t do the media any favors tonight and he did do the President one, because as you saw with Rudy Giuliani and as I’m sure you’ll see with the president himself, this allows them to say, ‘You can’t believe it. You can’t believe what you read, you can’t believe what you hear, you can only believe us. Even the special counsel says that the media doesn’t get it right.’”

Today was a perfect example of the mental illness that liberals have. Once they have been refuted, they go to nasty insults.

What’s got me with this report is that Mueller waited all day to put out a statement saying that the story was wrong. He is just as crooked as CNN and those creeps at Buzzfeed. It’s time to bring his witch hunt to a close. I hope with new AG they go after the real crooks like crooked Hillary Clinton.

I feel sorry for the few honest journalists who have to work in a corrupt industry. Who would have thought people such as Chuck Todd, Jake Tapper, Chris Cuomo, Don Lemon, Rachel Maddow, Juan Williams, Dan Rather, and so many others would decide to become less trustworthy than the used car business?

What a great week for Trump! He smacks Pelosi on the nose with a newspaper and takes away her plane, then gets to watch the media embarrass themselves and their industry over him, once again proving his fake news claims.

One of CNN’s blind squirrels seems to have found nuts two nights in a row last week — and, wonder of wonders, it was Chris Cuomo.

In fact, in the second it was so surprising that the other members of the panel were nodding along in agreement until they realized just what it was they were agreeing to.

The panel took place after the president’s address to the nation in which he made the case for the border wall.

And, lo and behold, Cuomo made it right along with him.

“Let’s just get something straight for the audience right now because this is one of those things that’s literally been bothering me — almost ruined my vacation,” Cuomo said.

TRENDING: Texas Cowboy Hands Special Gift to President Trump, ‘You Can Give It to Your Son, Barron’

“There is a barrier system all along the southern border. They need more.”

This is indeed true; in fact, the Border Patrol chief for the Rio Grande Valley Sector noted that 96 percent of foot traffic crossing the border came in through one of two corridors because there wasn’t adequate fencing on that side. (Jim Acosta, we assume, picked the other side when he noted how safe fences were.)

As a video posted by The Dailer Caller demonstrates, Cuomo got a lot of nods until the rest of the panel realized what this was.

“Anybody who does the reporting, anybody who talks to the people down there doing the work — the men and women — they need more of what the president is increasingly describing as his own idea for a bollard fence,” Cuomo said.

The “bollard fence” is the type of slatted steel wall that you’ve seen so frequently lately, either on Trump’s Twitter account or in Jim Acosta videos.

Anyway, the other panelists suddenly realized what he was saying and went after him.

“The Democrats are saying it’s not necessary because there are other ways to attack the problem that are better,” panelist Gloria Borger said.

“But is that true?” Cuomo responded. “Who says that a barrier isn’t helpful?”

“Sure, there are real arguments that barriers are helpful,” another panelist noted. “In certain locations. In certain ways. Many experts argue we don’t need as much wall as Trump suggests.”

Still, Cuomo managed to make an argument for the wall — just as he’d done the night before with Don Lemon.

“Wanting barriers along the border is not propaganda,” Cuomo had said the previous night. “It’s not immoral. It’s not wrong.”

Well, this is a definite stunner. This almost slipped by this past week without notice.

Raise your hand if you ever expected anyone on CNN to ever support President Donald Trump on anything, much less make a public statement of it live on the network.

Not a lot of hands going up there.

But CNN’s Chris Cuomo did it, so one has to give him recognition when he finally calls something right when we’ve frequently called him out when he’s been wrong.

Cuomo, who attended a lunch with the president and other TV anchors Tuesday afternoon, hosted a CNN panel to react to Trump’s national Oval Office address on immigration. Some of the panelists were less than enthralled by the president’s demand for a wall and his insistence that the border situation is a “crisis,” but Cuomo sprang to Trump’s defense.

“Let’s just get something straight for the audience right now because this is one of those things that’s literally been bothering me — almost ruined my vacation,” Cuomo asserted. “There is a barrier system all along the southern border. They need more.”

“Anybody who does the reporting, anybody who talks to the people down there doing the work — the men and women — they need more of what the president is increasingly describing as his own idea for a bollard fence,” Cuomo said.

An actual commission of journalism by Cuomo.

He’s making the point that a lot of liberal media is leaving out – that it’s the professionals in the know who are having to deal with the problems and the issues who are calling for this, Trump isn’t just pulling this out of the air.

And his idea for the bollard or steel slat fence is based off of the needs of the Border Patrol as Cuomo correctly noted.

Cuomo continued making another great point, that Democrats had approved similar barriers in the past, so what is the problem with them now?

CNN analyst Gloria Borger tried to knock his position and argue the Democratic narrative that a wall was “not necessary because there are other ways to attack the problem that are better.”

Yet again, Cuomo came back with a great point. “But is that true?” Cuomo said. “Who says that a barrier isn’t helpful?”

Exactly. The Border Patrol has already said the walls work. And no one arguing for the wall is saying don’t have technology too. Another point being missed. Trump is arguing for more technology as well.

But if Democrats actually had another way that was better, where is it? Why haven’t they produced it? Hint: they haven’t produced it because they don’t have it. They just want to be naysayers and stymie Trump.

This is the second time in the past week that Cuomo has actually come out with positive words about a wall, previously defending it to his colleague, Don Lemon. “Wanting barriers along the border is not propaganda. It’s not immoral. It’s not wrong,” he said.

Two more conservatives were censored by Big Tech for completely political reasons this week

Scott Presler, a well-known conservative with 260,000 followers on Twitter was banned from Facebook for posting about the murder of Reggie Singh by an “illegal alien.” Alex Van Ness a research analyst for the Clarion Project was suspended from Twitter for twelve hours for calling Chelsea Manning “a guy.” Both incidents demonstrate social media’s clear bias and continuing strategy to designate conservative speech as “hate speech.”

Social media has similar political bans recently. Newsbusters staffer Nick Fondacaro was locked out from his account for 15 hours for criticizing CNN anchor Don Lemon. Evangelist Franklin Graham was similarly banned from Facebook for a post he made two years before. In both cases, social media giants apologized.

The murder of Corporal Singh, allegedly by illegal immigrant Gustavo Perez Arriago, was the perfect juxtaposition between the model legal immigrant serving his new homeland, and the illegal immigrant who reportedly harmed him. His brother, Reggie Singh, appeared with Trump at his visit to the border. Presler commented “Reggie Singh, I don’t know you. I didn’t know your brother. But I want you to know how brave you are. Millions of Americans’ hearts break for your family. We stand with you in protecting our families from criminal illegal aliens.”

Facebook responded by taking down the post, claiming it “goes against our Community Standards on hate speech” and silencing Presler until January 13.

Alex Van Ness tweeted at Chelsea Manning, formerly Bradley Manning, who was sentenced to 35 years for leaking classified documents. Manning stood trial after being accused of “being a traitor who used his training and skills to deliberately and systematically harm the US and provide assistance to al-Qaida.”

Ness’s tweet called Manning by Manning’s biological gender. Saying “You’re a guy” eight times before following it up with “and a traitor.” This was in response to Manning claiming that “they/them is a singular pronoun” eight times.

Both of these incidents were part of a continuing trend where banter/insults and objective facts, if they come from conservative sources, are designated as hate speech. Dr Jordan Peterson described the problem of murkily defined “hate speech” succinctly in a tweet “the crucial question--the Achilles heel--remains: who defines hate? Answer: those to whom you would least want to grant such power.”

Former longtime Univision anchor María Elena Salinas revealed on Tuesday evening that many Latinos are buying the arguments President Donald Trump is making about illegal immigration.

Salinas, whom the New York Times once described as the “voice of Hispanic America,” told CNN host Don Lemon after Trump’s Tuesday evening Oval Office address that she is saddened that Latinos “are buying some of these arguments against undocumented immigrants” that Trump has been making.

“And it’s very sad to see that our own people, who are immigrants themselves, are attacking these immigrants that are trying to come in, knowing themselves how difficult the situation is in a lot of these Latin American countries,” she continued. “And, you know, they’re buying it, and some people, just like some other Trump supporters, are saying, well, you know, so what if he tells lies, as long as we have lower unemployment among the Latino community.”

In his Oval Office address, Trump specifically mentioned that illegal immigration hurts African-Americans and Hispanic Americans.

“It strains public resources and drives down jobs and wages,” Trump said of illegal immigration. “Among those hardest hit are African-Americans and Hispanic Americans.”

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump, in addition to making the economic case for fewer illegal immigrants, also explicitly pointed out that the media often ignore Latino families who have been victimized by illegal immigrant crimes.

Trump ended up shocking the political and media establishments by doing better among Hispanic voters than Mitt Romney did four years before. And though the media have tried to vilify Trump as a “racist” who hates brown people, Trump’s support among Latinos has remained steady.

A December Associated Press report pointed out “the GOP’s position among Hispanics has not weakened during the Trump administration, despite the president’s rhetoric against immigrants and the party’s shift to the right on immigration.”

“Though Latino voters are a key part of the Democratic coalition, there is a larger bloc of reliable Republican Latinos than many think,” the Associated Press explained.

AP’s VoteCast data from the 2018 midterm elections reportedly found that “ 32 percent of Latinos voted for Republicans” while other midterm election surveys “also found roughly one-third of Latinos supporting the GOP.”

The Associated Press noted that “the stability of Republicans’ share of the Latino vote frustrates Democrats, who say actions like Trump’s family separation policy and his demonization of an immigrant caravan should drive Latinos out of the GOP.”

CNN’s Don Lemon wants Pres. Trump’s speech edited before it’s allowed to be seen by Americans.

The Dandy one thinks that Pres. Trump is going to lie to the American people and needs to be somehow corrected before the speech is dispersed to the general public. Another CNN personality Chris Cuomo look as if he was confused over the notion that this subject would even come up.

Lemon seemed frightened that Trump could make a solid argument by presenting his facts and he thinks that is dangerous. Cuomo corrected him immediately which I am surprised.

What would be different about the media wanting to edit what Trump says? They do it every day anyway.

And they can’t figure out why Trump calls them “fake news” when they’re literally suggesting that the news networks be given a chance to alter the POTUS’s address? If Cuomo is the voice of reason in your room, you’ve wandered into a loon bag territory.

I hope nobody thinks the 1st amendment is safe in the hands of these progressives. The Constitution will be torn up and rewritten with the court’s help. Thank God for Trump’s appointments.

And by the way, let’s not canonize Cuomo just yet. They were probably playing good cop, bad cop (good reporter, bad reporter) right before your very eyes. The fact the Lemon would even suggest that is beyond absurd. To even suggest that an elected President be censored is criminal.

Former state Senator and current CNN commentator Nina Turner went low on Thursday night suggesting that Republicans go “change the president’s diapers.”

I know, just solid news analysis of the day’s events with CNN. It’s a true mystery why CNN’s ratings are so low. Maybe people are just not smart enough to comprehend this level of intelligent commentary.

The only people that seem to be doing the crying, whining, pissing, and moaning have been the Democrats for the last two years. They don’t seem to be able to grow up since the 2016 Presidential election.

Donald Trump continued to take criticism for his stunt appearance in the White House briefing room Thursday, as former state Senator and current CNN commentator Nina Turner (D-OH) told the world that it’s time for Republicans to go “change the president’s diapers.”

Mark Morgan is coming out in support of President Trump even thought he was fired by him.

Morgan says the border fence is not the entire answer but a very significant one that needs to be addressed.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer do not want to listen to opposition expert voices on the border. They will only hear experts who claim the border fence, which is already in place, is not needed. Pelosi calls it immoral even though she has a fence around her house, or shall I say a wall.

Mark Morgan, the Obama administration chief of the U.S. Border Patrol who was fired one day after President Donald Trump took office, went public on Tuesday with a message that may surprise the White House: he supports Mr. Trump and his efforts to get funding for a border wall.

“I’m here today breaking my silence to tell the American people that the president is correct in what he’s doing,” Morgan said in an interview with the Law & Crime Network. “The wall works.”

When he was still running the Border Patrol, Morgan referred to the needs at the border as a “fence.” He told a Senate committee in November 2016, “Do we need more fencing? Yes. Does it work? Yes. Do we need it everywhere? No. Is it the sole answer? No.” Morgan again said on Tuesday that a physical barrier is not the whole answer and is not needed along the entire border, but it is significant.

“It would be like having a high-tech security system, but not having doors or windows in your house,” Morgan said.

For anyone keeping score, this is a solid interview by someone who cares very deeply for this country and the American citizens that dwell within.

Did you guys see Chris Cuomo have to patiently explain to Don Lemon why Trump has every right to address the American people? It was hilarious.

“I’m here today breaking my silence to tell the American people that the president is correct in what he’s doing. The wall works.” A voice that would not be heard if President Trump wasn’t addressing the nation today. That is why the media is infuriated. They cannot control the narrative.

If Donald Trump‘s supporters were upset about being called “deplorables,” then they’ll be even less pleased by CNN analyst and Republican strategist Rick Wilson‘s brutal assessment of their intellectual and oral faculties.

On Thursday night’s edition of CNN Tonight with Don Lemon, host Don Lemon asked Wilson to react to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi‘s (D-CA) remarks at an earlier press conference. “This is not a wall between Mexico and the United States that the president is creating here, it’s a wall between reality and his constituents, his supporters,” Pelosi told reporters.

“Is she right about [Trump’s] motives here, this wall is just to keep his base’s mind off of everything else?” Lemon asked.

“Of course,” Wilson said. “Don, the wall has always been a con for Donald Trump’s credulous rube ten-toothed base. The wall has always been a scam. It has always been a lie. Nothing about the wall has ever been real.”

He added that “It’s an insult to their intelligence, but obviously it seems to work with his base because they believe it over and over again, that nothing will stop the brown horde except the wall.”

Lemon then astutely pointed out that contrary to Trump’s “The Wall is Coming” meme, “he wall didn’t work in Game of Thrones, shouldn’t he know that?”

The panel had a good laugh when Wilson cracked that the wall will eventually “going to end with being the freedom ditch.”

Wilson did not specify whether the 10 teeth were a collective count, or per each Trump supporter, but either total would fall well short of the 32 that are contained in the typical human mouth.

But the real question that all of this raises is, if Rick Wilson is guilty of dentism, does that make him a dentist?

A conservative reporter and a producer were suspended from Twitter on Thursday — one for making a joke about his distaste for brussels sprouts and the other for making fun of drunk CNN host Don Lemon on New Year’s Eve.

Jeremy Boreing, executive producer of The Ben Shapiro Show, was temporarily suspended from the platform for “promoting or encouraging suicide or self-harm” because he joked that people who enjoy brussels sprouts should “burn” their “face[s] off.”

“Even better, coat with melted butter, salt, pepper, paprika, and a dash of Worcestershire, sear in cast iron in bacon grease for thirty seconds or until brown, then throw them away and burn your face off with the hot pan because even that would be better than Brussels sprouts,” Boreing tweeted Thursday.

This is legitimately the most insane Twitter suspension I have ever heard of. My business partner, @JeremyDBoreing, was just suspended for 12 hours for this tweet. Why?

NewsBusters staffer Nicholas Fondacaro was also locked out of his account Thursday for making fun of CNN anchor Don Lemon being drunk on New Year’s Eve.

NewsBusters claims the tweet was merely a variation on the opening sentence of an article by Fondacaro, which read, “Fresh from his drunken New Year’s Eve bender with colleague Brooke Baldwin, CNN Tonight host Don Lemon was excitedly looking forward to California Representative Nancy Pelosi becoming Speaker of the House on Thursday.”

Twitter told Fondacaro that he would be suspended for 12 hours — but the countdown would not start until he deleted the offending tweet.

Twitter said the tweet “promoted violence against, threatened, or harassed other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease.”

Twitter did not immediately return a request for comment.

On Thursday, Rick Wilson, political strategist and author of "Everything Trump Touches Dies: A Republican Strategist Gets Real About the Worst President Ever," took a brutal swipe at supporters of President Trump while speaking with CNN’s Don Lemon.

After Lemon played a clip in which Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) claims that the president is trying to distract his constituents with talk of a southern border wall, the host asked Wilson: "Is she right, Rick, about the president’s motives here? This wall is just to keep his base’s attention off everything else?"

Wilson replied:

Of course. Don, the wall has always been a con for Donald Trump’s credulous rube ten-tooth base. The wall has always been a scam. It has always been a lie. Nothing about the wall has ever been real, and Donald Trump knows it. He is a guy who has a long history in his career [of] being a conman. He’s conning these people who think he’s gonna build a 2,000-mile, 30-foot high concrete wall with laser moats and alligators in it. It’s just crazy. It always has been – and yet they suspend their disbelief because they believe so strongly in Donald Trump.

Like I said, it’s always been a con. It’s always been a scam. It’s an insult to their intelligence, but obviously it seems to work with his base because they believe it over and over again that nothing will stop the brown horde except the wall.

It’s unlikely that Rick Wilson’s claim regarding the president’s base – that they are a clan of racist fools who simply want a wall to keep "brown" people out – will go over well with Trump voters who have taken a pro-barrier stance after thoughtful consideration of the ramifications of open-border policy.

The battle over the long-promised southern border wall has intensified over the last several weeks, triggering an ongoing partial government shutdown, which began on December 22.

While President Trump has asked for approximately $5 billion to begin construction of a southern border wall, leaders in the Democratic Party have offered the president $1.3 to $1.6 billion in funding for "border security."

Appearing on ABC’s "This Week" on December 23, acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney said that the administration made a counter-offer to Democrats. Although Mulvaney wouldn’t elaborate, according to the Associated Press, an anonymous Democratic aide claimed that the offer amounted to $2.5 billion.

However, Democratic leadership has repeatedly said that there will be no wall.

At a Thursday press conference, Speaker Pelosi stated: "We’re not doing a wall. Does anyone have any doubt that we’re not doing a wall?" She later added: "It has nothing to do with politics; it has to do with the wall [as] an immorality between countries. It’s an old way of thinking."

Although portions of the existing fencing in various sectors are being repaired or replaced, the construction of a wall such as the one repeatedly described by the Trump administration has yet to begin.

It’s always a good idea to do some self-reflection before the start of a new year, and the establishment media sure has a lot to think about.

MSNBC has been covered by the Washington Free Beacon, but in order to help CNN in this process, we’ve compiled the most insane moments that happened on their airwaves in 2018.

CNN kicked off the year in style by having anchors Brooke Baldwin and Don Lemon get wasted in a New Orleans bar on New Year’s Eve. Fellow reporter Randi Kaye, meanwhile, was in Colorado worrying about getting a “contact high” on a party bus filled with pot-smokers.

The nonsense continued through February when CNN sent a reporter to the home of an elderly woman who unwittingly shared pro-Trump Facebook posts that were created by Russian trolls. After CNN aired the video of their reporter confronting the woman, she was exposed to vicious and constant online harassment and threats.

Viewers demanded an apology from the network in November after anchor Don Lemon called white men the “biggest terror threat” in the country and pondered why there isn’t a travel ban on white guys.

And who could forget a CNN reporter literally dumpster diving for evidence of Russian collusion outside of the office of a Russian “troll farm” in St. Petersburg?

No one was safe from CNN’s divisive rhetoric about Trump supporters, not even superstar rapper Kanye West. He was maligned as a “token negro” and a panel of CNN guests laughed as they mocked his intellect and offered to “trade” him in the “racial draft.”

While that panel was free to lob insults at a celebrity who spoke openly about mental illness, guests not dare utter “the m-word” on CNN’s airwaves. Anchors Brooke Baldwin and Don Lemon repeatedly chided guests who said that chasing people out of restaurants and trying to knock down the doors to the Supreme Court is “mob-like behavior.”

CNN commentator Angela Rye rolling her eyes when Trump campaign adviser Gina Loudon talked about her disabled minority son was another not-to-be-missed moment. Loudon responded to the incident with class while Rye continued to accuse her of “using” her son.

With moments like these, it’s no wonder that CNN’s ratings dropped significantly throughout the year. CNN was the only cable news network to experience declining ratings in both total day and primetime categories.

“President Donald Trump made his first visit to a war zone on Wednesday, receiving an enthusiastic reception from many US troops there — some of whom may have run afoul of military rules.

Video footage and the written report of Trump’s visit with service members in Iraq showed the President signing “Make America Great Again” hats and an embroidered patch that read “Trump 2020.”

But troops’ requests for the autographs could brush up against Department of Defense guidelines for political activities…

US military authorities in the coalition did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment.

Retired Rear Adm. John Kirby, a former Obama administration spokesperson and a CNN analyst, said on CNN’s “The Situation Room” on Wednesday that service members having Trump sign the items was inappropriate.

It’s hard to know exactly how to feel about this supposed news article. It is hard to wrap one’s mind around the staggering delusion, the complete and utter disconnect from reality and decency, exemplified here by CNN. It’s hard to even place oneself in the mindset of a CNN “reporter” who feels that it’s appropriate or interesting to do something like this.

Some people laughed when CNN blackmailed a Reddit user named Han A**hole Solo into hiding after he posted a pro-President Trump meme.

Some people merely shrugged when CNN showed up on the front lawn of a nice older lady who allegedly unwittingly shared Russian stuff on Facebook.

Some people turned a blind eye when Don Lemon got drunk on the air.

Now, we are here. At this point. CNN is trying to get active-duty military service members in trouble for asking President Trump to sign their MAGA hats.

CNN was slammed for what many called overwhelmingly negative coverage of President Donald Trump’s visit to the troops was on Wednesday night.

Both the president and first lady Melania Trump surprised troops stationed in Iraq the day after Christmas, which was followed by another visit with the troops in Germany.

However, there was barely a kind word expressed towards the president regarding his trip overseas -- at least on CNN. The network published a report Wednesday evening drawing attention to the troops who brought MAGA hats for the president to sign being against military guidelines, which forbids active members of the military from participating in “political activities.”

The story by CNN politics reporter Eli Watkins, headlined “Troops bringing Trump hats to sign may violate military rule,” was mocked on social media.

CNN Politics’ verified Twitter account was ratioed when Watkins’ story was sent out, which is typically a sign that the majority of readers don’t agree. As of Thursday morning, the tweet received over 3,300 comments and only 826 likes.

Meanwhile, several watchdogs pointed out that President Obama also signed autographs when visiting troops.

CNN’s criticism of Trump visiting the troops wasn’t limited to Watkins report and the network took a negative tone throughout their evening coverage.

CNN anchor Jim Sciutto blasted Trump for his “routine lying,” while CNN military analyst Mark Hertling criticized Trump for getting “political” during his visit. Former Obama State Department spokesman John Kirby even dinged the president for not visiting with Iraqi security forces, who are also part of the fight against ISIS.

Ex-Obama senior advisor David Axelrod told Sciutto that it’s “good” that Trump went to see the troops and that “we should give him credit where credit is due,” but slammed the president’s political rhetoric.

“It does give you the sense that this was sort of a box-checking exercise in many ways for the president. It was a serendipitous timing because it clearly was planned before everything that’s happened. And you know, yesterday was kind of an orgy of self-pity and rage on Twitter from the White House,” the CNN political commentator said. “So it changed the subject, it put him in a much better position coming with all the turmoil in the Defense Department. It’s a valuable thing but peculiar in many other ways.”

CNN anchor Don Lemon took shots at Trump for visiting the troops while the U.S. Coast Guard continues to work without pay during the partial government shutdown and later referred to Trump as “The Grinch” for making Christmas about him as well as his visit with the troops. Former NSA advisor Samantha Vinograd agreed, saying the president “should’ve stayed home.”

Later on, CNN’s April Ryan said Trump’s visit with the troops “should have happened a long time ago” and questioned whether everyone “should be commending him” for something presidents have done in the past.

One of the best things about Super Bowl LIII was, without question, the national anthem sung by the iconic Gladys Knight.

Here’s the wonderful rendition from the Empress of Soul:

But after she sang, CNN’s Don Lemon interviewed her last night and seemed to try to put her on the spot for doing so.

He played the words of Mark Geragos at her. Geragos, Colin Kaepernick’s lawyer, said that people who performed during the Super Bowl were crossing an “intellectual picket line.”

Lemon asked the singer what she thought of that comment. Lemon even asked her if she feared for her career after having performed.

And she wasn’t having ANY of that. Watch her legendary exchange:

She spoke about how she grew up singing it in school (and also mentioned how there used to be prayer in schools). She spoke about what it meant to her and how people really needed to listen to it to understand it and what it’s about.

She noted that she still has family in the military and that the anthem also has special meaning to them.

Depending on which report you read, the death of the Weekly Standard is either imminent or a tad less imminent. Either way, the anti-Trump publication founded by Bill Kristol and Fred Barnes in 1995 appears to be in desperate need of a rich savior, and any attempt to find one has thus far failed.

Has editor-in-chief Stephen Hayes reached out to George Soros or Tom Steyer? I’m not even joking.

Listen, no one enjoys the prospect of seeing anyone lose a job, so in the spirit of the season, I just want to say to the Weekly Standard staff that I am every bit as distraught over this as you would be if Breitbart News shut down.

The easiest way to sum up the failure of the Weekly Standard is this: Why would anyone on the right offer financial support to the Weekly Standard when CNN will call us a racist for free? And why would anyone on the left offer financial support to the Weekly Standard when CNN will call us a racist for free?

Sarcasm aside, that is the Weekly Standard’s primary problem. In the age of Trump, the publication offers nothing we cannot get everywhere else in the elite media, nothing we cannot find at the far-left Washington Post, MSNBC, New York Times, CNN, etc.

Smug virtue-signaling and superior Trump-bashing are the cheapest commodities in today’s news business. They are literally everywhere. And so, instead of offering a unique voice and perspective in an ocean of left-wing media, the Weekly Standard instead chose to sit in the middle of this ocean and sell saltwater.

Even those in the establishment media lamenting the loss of the Weekly Standard are all spewing some variation of the same thing: “An important conservative voice opposing Trump.”

Sure, we all understand why the corrupt media found this “important voice” valuable: it allowed them to exploit the Weekly Standard and its contributors as a club against Trump from the right, and there is no species on earth the media find more useful than a narcissistic Republican bashing one of his own.

Regardless, the media’s ability to use the Weekly Standard as a propaganda weapon did not make the Weekly Standard more interesting to the everyday news and opinion consumer. In fact, the Weekly Standard became so predictable in its reactionary response to all things Trump (and his supporters), so predictable, it ceased to be interesting (a problem the Weekly Standard shares with last-place CNN).

I don’t do boycotts, so I did not stop visiting the Weekly Standard for any other reason than I lost interest. The publication’s decision to sell out, to conform with the elite media, made it dull and wholly unnecessary.

And on top of all that tedious conformity, there was the sell-out factor.

Whether it was their banal stories or sanctimonious tweets, it seemed as though everything coming from the Weekly Standard was manipulated in a way to earn an invite on Morning Joe or from Don Lemon; as a means to attract the Washington Post into hiring just one more disgraced neocon willing to publicly renounce all his previous beliefs in exchange for a byline and a few bucks.

Watching grown men demean themselves in this way is kind of like watching porn. The first 15 minutes are great, but then you just want to take a shower and never watch again.

I don’t want to mislead anyone. This is not one of those “I loved you and you betrayed me” pieces. I’ll save that for David Letterman and National Review. For a time, though, there were a few writers over there I read regularly, but I was never a subscriber or anything.

No, the Weekly Standard as a whole only became interesting to watch as it fell into the establishment media’s classic trap, the old siren song of, Betray your base and we’ll love you…

And then your base abandons you, the music stops, and just like Megyn Kelly, you discover you’re the one without a chair.

CNN's Don Lemon would not have extended a hand to President Trump as the Obamas did had he been seated next to the president at former President George H.W. Bush's funeral.

"I'm going to say that I don't think I would shake hands with him. I would just — nope, couldn't do it. I'm not that big a person," Lemon told his CNN colleague Chris Cuomo Wednesday at the top of his show. "I would hope that I would be, but I don't — I can't fake the funk as they say."

"They showed the ultimate respect for the office," Lemon said of the Obamas. "They do not have to show respect for someone who does not respect them."

Former President Barack Obama and wife Michelle Obama greeted President Trump and first lady Melania Trump as they sat down beside them and other ex-Oval Office occupants Wednesday at Washington National Cathedral for the funeral service celebrating the life of the 41st president.

President Trump has frequently lobbed political attacks at his predecessor, including encouraging the so-called "birther" movement, which called into question his legitimacy as president by questioning his birthplace. The pair more recently clashed on the campaign trail ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.

Lemon, who himself as been a target of Trump's, on Wednesday evening then demonstrated how he would have ignored the current president's outstretched hand using a member of his crew.

"I'm not petty and small. That's real, brother. That's real," he said in response to Cuomo telling him he was being rude. "This is not about ideology. This is about the way someone conducts themselves. If you constantly called me names, and you were rude to me, and you — why should I have to show you respect at all?"

Lemon went on to say he would not have attended the funeral had he been in Trump's position.

"An office is not a human being. I don't think it's respect for the human being if you talk smack about them, if you say the nastiest things about them, if you treat them as subhuman, and then you want to show up at their funeral. Really? Hell to the no," he said.

During the 2016 Republican presidential primary, Trump also lambasted former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush in an attempt to tie him to the unpopular aspects of the administrations run by his brother, former President George W. Bush, and their father, the 41st president.

George H.W. Bush died Nov. 30 at the age of 84. He will be buried Thursday at his namesake presidential library in College Station, Texas.

Active shooter incidents are defined as any incident involving one or more individuals who are actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill those within a populated area — gang or drug-related shootings notwithstanding.

There were 50 active shooter incidents in 2016 and 2017 combined, leaving many to question if America is, in fact, safer when armed.

However, a recent investigation by the FBI in April showed that, in numerous incidents involving active shooters, there were people who stopped them by use of a weapon.

“Armed and unarmed citizens engaged the shooter in 10 incidents. They safely and successfully ended the shootings in eight of those incidents,” read the report. “Their selfless actions likely saved many lives.

“The enhanced threat posed by active shooters and the swiftness with which active shooter incidents unfold support the importance of preparation by law enforcement officers and citizens alike.”

TRENDING: Black Leaders Issue Powerful Message to CNN over Don Lemon’s Anti-White Comments

Ten active shooters had been confronted by citizens, and eight of them ended successfully, according to The Daily Caller. Four of those eight shooters were stopped by a lawfully armed citizen.

“In one incident, a citizen possessing a valid firearms permit exchanged gunfire with the shooter, causing the shooter to flee to another scene and continue shooting,” the report read.

Yet, in the wake of so many gun shootings and violence, the call for disarming American citizens remains.

According to Timothy Hsiao for The Federalist, it is not a matter of if guns increase violence, but if they are a good means of self-defense.

“What matters is not the risk (or lack thereof) that guns pose to society, but simply whether guns are a reasonable means of self-defense,” wrote Hsiao, adding that to defend one’s life is a basic dignity that cannot be taken away in the name of “social utility.”

“Rights function as moral ‘trump cards’ that override appeals to utility,” he said. “Like our right to life, our right to defend ourselves is a basic dignity that can’t be defeated just because it might produce a net benefit.”

In nearly all national survey estimates, the result saw that defensive gun uses by victims were nearly as common as offensive uses by criminals.

Though millions of Americans are legally permitted to carry firearms every day, most of them cite self-defense as the first and foremost reason to do so.

“The overwhelming majority of the time, those guns are never drawn in anger,” wrote Paul Hsieh for Forbes. “But innocent civilians can and do sometimes use their guns in self-defense.”

Any conversation, Hsieh added, that centers around firearm policy needs to acknowledge those that are saved by the legal use of guns and self-defense, such as those in the active shooter incidents.

“The value of firearms in the hands of law-abiding citizens should be measured in terms of lives saved or crimes prevented,” he said, “Not criminals killed.”

Liberals have declared war on white women — who are now being blamed for anything they hate about President Trump, Republicans, and society in general. Racism was once condemned as evil (because it is), but today, racism is apparently evil only when it’s directed at minorities. White women and men are open targets, and the […]

The Political Insider

Published  3 months ago

CNN political analyst Kirsten Powers, formerly of Fox News, claimed that all white women who voted for Donald Trump are racist during a panel hosted by Don Lemon.

Powers particularly targeted those who felt they had to select Trump because Hillary Clinton was simply a terrible candidate whom they could never support.

Starting with the false premise that the President uses racist language, she argued that casting a vote in his favor was a vote cast in favor of that language, and by extension, his alleged racist motivations.

CNN’s Kirsten Powers on women who voted for Trump: “They’ll say, ‘Well, I’m not racist. I just voted for him because I didn’t like Hillary Clinton.’ And I just want to say that’s not — that doesn’t make you not racist. It actually makes you racist.” pic.twitter.com/P4Hy3KJeHY

Powers would double down on the comments, saying “If you support somebody that’s racist, that makes you racist. So, I just want to establish that.”

Guess that makes anyone who voted for Barack Obama a racist. There is, after all, no other President in modern times who did more to damage race relations in America.

CNN host Don Lemon says white people are terrorists

It’s not surprising Powers would come to such an analysis on a network that perpetually portrays Trump supporters as racist, especially on a show hosted by Lemon, who recently stated white men are the biggest terror threat in America.

But it’s remarkable nonetheless.

It should also be noted that Powers also claimed that white women only voted for Trump because their husbands told them to.

“We have to remember that the white patriarchal system actually benefits white women in a lot of ways and they’re attached to white men who are benefiting from the system that was created by them, for them,” Powers asserted.

What happened to Kirsten Powers

There’s something about CNN that turns former Fox News analysts and Republicans into full-blown sufferers of Trump Derangement Syndrome. Take for example, Amanda Carpenter, former staffer for Senator Ted Cruz, who also labeled Republicans as racist quite recently.

Powers was a mainstay on Bill O’Reilly’s show and actually left Fox News because the former Factor host allegedly made inappropriate comments in her presence.

Powers had previously been a fairly level-headed and well-reasoned liberal, even criticizing those on the far-left who have tried to stifle free speech.

That said, she has long held the view that America is a fundamentally racist nation. Here she is in an insanely heated segment with O’Reilly defending that stance …

Powers, during that segment, said there are “a lot of people” in America that are racist, and not everybody is willing to acknowledge that.

Breitbart

Published  3 months ago

A Morning Consult poll shows CNN’s Jake Tapper is the most mistrusted journalist in America.

The poll surveyed 2,206 adults, has a margin of error of plus or minus two percent, and asked a number of questions about the news media in general and 50 specific American media personalities specifically.

When asked “How much do you trust the following” media personality, 35 percent said of Tapper “not much” or “not at all.” This high level of mistrust for Tapper placed the left-wing CNN anchor in tenth place on a list of the most mistrusted media personalities.

What is notable, though, is that Tapper is only so-called “journalist” on that top ten list.

Here are the others…

Sean Hannity (46 percent), Joe Scarborough (41 percent), Mika Brzezninski (40 percent), Stephen Colbert (39 percent), Rachel Maddow (38 percent) Shepard Smith (37 percent), Chris Matthews (37 percent), Tucker Carlson (36 percent), and Don Lemon (36 percent), are all more mistrusted than Tapper. Steve Doocy, Juan Williams, and Lawrence O’Donnell are all tied with Tapper at 35 percent.

Other than Tapper, all of the “most mistrusted” ranked on that list are either open about the fact they are partisan commentators, or are widely seen as partisan commentators.

The only person on the “most mistrusted” list who always poses as a capital “J” journalist is Tapper, who insists he is a down-the-middle, objective, fact-driven reporter and not a partisan commentator.

Now, it is not altogether unreasonable to argue that two others on that list — Shepard Smith and Don Lemon — pose as journalists. But over the past few years, we have all seen Lemon fully embrace the role of a left-wing activist as, among other things, he attacks President Trump as a racist and rages against white men. These days, Lemon is just another leftist who hosts a cable show.

As far as Shepherd Smith, he is not all that different from Lemon.

Something else that distinguished Tapper from the others is that he holds a position in what is widely seen as the pinnacle of the journalism profession — Tapper hosts a Sunday morning current affairs show.

Nevertheless, just the fact that Tapper finds himself lumped in with so many admitted (and mistrusted) partisans (including a late night comedian) says a lot about his fall from grace over the last five years.

On the flip-side, 19 percent of those polled say they trust Tapper “a lot,” while 26 percent say they trust him “some,” for a total of 45 percent — which is about in the middle of the overall 50, but does make him the least trusted of the Sunday show hosts: Chris Wallace (57 percent), Stephanopoulos (53 percent), Chuck Todd (46 percent), and John Dickerson (48 percent), who only recently left Face the Nation.

A plurality of 38 percent believe Tapper leans “very liberal” or somewhat liberal,” which puts him right in line with a number of openly left-leaning commentators: Ari Melber (36 percent), Brzezinski (43 percent), Chris Matthews (37 percent), Joe Scarborough (33 percent), Chris Hayes (29 percent), and Lawrence O’Donnell (33 percent).

Only 19 percent believe Tapper does not lean either way, while a mere 11 percent see him as leaning to the political right.

On the issue of favorability, 25 percent view Tapper favorably, while 18 percent view him unfavorably. A plurality of 41 percent have never heard of him.

I am so frustrated by the way the mainstream media treats our First Lady.

She is a strong, compassionate, empowered woman. There’s no question her heart is in the right place. She treats everyone with the kindness, dignity, and grace worthy of the First Lady of the United States.

They rip her to shreds. All because they hate her husband.

She had some words for those who continually mock and bully her.

She’s amazing. Seriously. I am so in awe of our FLOTUS.

Speaking at the Family Online Safety Institute conference in Washington, D.C.on Thursday, First Lady Melania Trump addressed those who have criticized her for choosing to tackle cyberbullying via the “Be Best” initiative.

“As I have said before, it is not news or surprising to me that critics and the media have chosen to ridicule me for speaking out on this issue, and that’s okay,” Mrs. Trump said.

“I remain committed to tackling this topic because it will provide a better world for our children,” she told critics. “And I hope, that like I do, you will consider using their negative words as motivation to do all you can to bring awareness and understanding about responsible online behavior.”

Is she not just absolute perfection?

And like CLOCKWORK, the libs came out of the woodwork.

Following Melania’s remarks on Thursday, CNN’s Don Lemon, right on cue, went after Mrs. Trump, calling her initiative irrelevant.

“Considering especially the tweets this morning from her husband, why is this relevant right now?” mocked Lemon, referencing tweets Trump posted about the “very dishonest” Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

“I don’t really care, do you?” he jabbed. The First Lady wore a jacket with that quote during a visit at the Texas/Mexico border. She later revealed that it was a message directed at the media.

This says SO MUCH MORE about Don Lemon than it does about her.

Namely, that he’s a sad little twerp.

TEAM MELANIA all the way!

CNN contributor Kirsten Powers said just because you voted for Donald Trump in 2016 because you didn't like Hillary Clinton "doesn't make you not racist." In fact, the 'USA Today' columnist said, "it actually makes you racist."

"People will say that they support him for reasons other than his racist language," Powers said. "The way he demonized people trying to come to our country on the caravan, and they'll say, well, I'm not racist, I just voted for him because I didn't like Hillary Clinton."

"I just want to say that doesn't make you not racist. It actually makes you racist. If you support somebody who does racist things, that makes you racist. I just want to establish that," Powers said Friday night

Powers acknowledged that white women support and benefit from the "white patriarchal system". Powers described a society of women "attached to white men" in a system full of fathers, husbands, and brothers.

"I think we have to remember that the white patriarchal system actually benefits white women in a lot of the ways and they're attached to white men who are benefiting from the system that was created by them, for them, and their fathers and their husbands and their brothers are benefiting from the system and so they are also benefiting," she said.

"White women are themselves oppressed and that they would therefore be able to align themselves with other oppressed people," Powers also said.

From Friday's edition of 'CNN Tonight' with host Don Lemon:

DON LEMON, CNN HOST: So white women supported Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. He won 52 percent of their votes. Though when you look at all women including women of color, Hillary Clinton had more support. She got 54 percent. Now, a wave of women, white, black and brown are sweeping into office after the 2018 election.

Does Donald Trump still have the support of a majority of white women and if so, why is that? Let's talk about it. Here to discuss, Kirsten Powers, Alice Stewart and Stephanie Jones-Rogers, she is a professor of history at UC Berkeley and the author of "They Were Her Property." Hello, one and all. This is a very important conversation. I'm sure it's going to stir up controversy in a number of different quarts. Be prepared for that. So thank you for joining us.

Kirsten, let me start with you. There's been a lot of talk about why white women support President Trump despite of or perhaps because of his policies and his tone. What's your take on this?

KIRSTEN POWERS, CNN POLITICAL ANALYST: Well, I think there's a lot of different ways to look at this. I think one of the first things is that people will say that they support him for reasons other than his racist language which we don't have time to go through, but there's all sorts of things starting from the launch of his campaign all the way up until the latest campaign.

The way he demonized people trying to come to our country on the caravan, and they'll say, well, I'm not racist, I just voted for him because I didn't like Hillary Clinton. And I just want to say that that's not -- that doesn't make you not racist. It actually makes you racist. If you support somebody who does racist things, that makes you racist. I just want to establish that.

As for why white women do it, I think we have to recognize that white men are doing it as well, but I think sometimes we would hope that we would get better behavior from white women because white women are themselves oppressed and that they would therefore be able to align themselves with other oppressed people.

But I think we have to remember that the white patriarchal system actually benefits white women in a lot of the ways and they're attached to white men who are benefiting from the system that was created by them, for them, and their fathers and their husbands and their brothers are benefiting from the system and so they are also benefiting.

Mediaite

Published  3 months ago

For anyone who has watched CNN in 2018, the idea of the network skipping a story featuring Stormy Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti, or even being dragged kicking and screaming to it rather than enthusiastically covering it in every hour, would have been unthinkable before last night.

But once news broke that the man who managed to make the Brett Kavanaugh hearings even less dignified had himself been arrested on charges of domestic assault — the network grew oddly reluctant to cover it.

Or in the case of one of the biggest Avenatti promoters Chris Cuomo, didn’t cover it at all.

Alisyn Camerota, who has interviewed Avenatti in the past and even expressed skepticism over some of the allegations he’s made, is a frequent on-air lecturer on feminism and #MeToo. She didn’t mention his name either Thursday morning, even while her co-host, John Berman, briefly reported Avenatti’s denial.

And we do mean briefly.

Not to mention late.

TMZ tweeted their story at 5:46 p.m. The first mention on CNN was by Erin Burnett, when she teased at the top of her show on Wednesday, at 7:01 p.m. In the intervening hour and 15 minutes, the AP confirmed the report, as did Fox News, Buzzfeed, and other news networks. Mediaite’s post went live at 5:59 pm. After Burnett teased it, her actual segment was at 7:41 pm. EST.

Later in the evening on Cuomo Prime Time, Chris Cuomo made no mention of the story, even as breaking news. Not that he is, in general, opposed to reporting stories that are just allegations, or even ones with no corroboration or even arrests made.

After Cuomo was Don Lemon‘s show, which mentioned Avenatti once, in the second hour at 11:29 p.m., for a 2-minute segment, which consisted in large part of his denial and comments from his wife, but nothing from police or the accuser.

On Thursday, after a brief mention on morning show New Day, the story was not reported on during CNN Newsroom with Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto, a two hour show.

Avenatti has been a fixture on CNN. During the Don Lemon segment they referred to him as a “household name.” His client, Stormy Daniels, and her allegations about Donald Trump have been a gigantic story for CNN. As judicial confirmation hearings took place on Capitol Hill, Avenatti and his other client, Julie Swetnick, accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of participating in multiple gang rapes, another story CNN ran exhaustively.

Chris Cuomo, in particular, had Avenatti as a guest on his show over and over and over, particularly regarding allegations about Kavanaugh. These were allegations of sexual abuse, crimes against women by a man, and Avenatti was on Chris Cuomo’s show time after time on the topics of the abuse and mistreatment of women. He was held out as a defender of those women, representing them against men who did wrong to them. It would be natural and, moreover, responsible, for Chris Cuomo to therefore mention when that very person whom he himself had interviewed on this very topic was now under arrest for allegedly abusing a woman.

But he did not. And he avoided the topic on social media, too. And even after he was called out on Twitter by consultant Matt Wolking as skipping the story, his only response was to troll a person who was replying to the thread, calling their “trash talk” weak.

Some of the weakest trash talk I have seen. https://t.co/MDDyehF5v8

— Christopher C. Cuomo (@ChrisCuomo) November 15, 2018

Usually, Cuomo is more than happy to tweet about Avenatti.

The rest of the network, too, has avoided the story like the plague, despite the instances, too many to count, of holding Avenatti up as a representative of and defender of the rights of women, seeking his opinion and judgment on the alleged misconduct of other men, and reporting breathlessly and without delay every allegation he has offered to date toward Trump or Kavanaugh. They have even covered his tweets, his presidential aspirations, and even sought his “expertise” on other Trump-related topics like Michael Cohen.

A few breaking news mentions that were between thirty and fifty seconds were the bulk of CNN’s sparse mention of Avenatti. The anchors who did mention it themselves focused almost exclusively on his denials. And the lawyer’s biggest boosters on the network, like Chris Cuomo, didn’t bring it up at all.

This is an opinion piece. The views expressed in this article are those of just the author.

WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON IN BROWARD COUNTY? And where are the law enforcement officials who should be watching the process of the votes being counted?

Earlier today, Str8 Don Lemon posted a photo of Democrat gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum posing for a picture with Noah Holliman, the man who dropped off the rental car at Avis Rental last night at the Fort Lauderdale airport with boxes full of provisional ballots in the trunk. The Democrat Sheriff who’s friends list includes Hillary Clinton and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, assured everyone that the ballots were empty and there was no cause for alarm…

Was there another non-political witness who confirmed the partisan hack, Sheriff Israel’s findings or are we supposed to just believe him?

Now, in what is truly a remarkable act of defiance and non-transparency, a worker inside the area where “counted” ballots are being stuffed into bags, is alerted by workers on the floor, who are stuffing bags with ballots, that someone behind the observation windows (with emphasis on the word “observation”) was videotaping the workers inside. The worker immediately springs into action and begins to moves a variety of boxes in front of the workers to conceal what they are doing from outside observers.

It’s time for the DOJ to step in and take control of this out-of-control process. Our elections are too important to be left up to a bunch of hack activists. Watch the video below and call to get the DOJ involved immediately!

Democrats have produced tens of thousands of ballots several days after the election–even worse, Broward County refused to disclose how many ballots they had left to tabulate which allowed them to count however many they needed to bring the Democrats within the margin of a recount.

While Republicans have ‘election day,’ the Democrats enjoy ‘election week’ or ‘election month.’

67 Florida counties have until 3 PM Thursday to finish their recount of the midterm ballots.

Palm Beach County was given extra days to finish their recount.

Criminal investigations were launched against Broward and Palm Beach County election officials following the mysterious 80,000 votes that suddenly appeared two days after election day in Broward County.

Sean Hannity told his audience on Wednesday that he has information that evidence has been turned over to law enforcement on criminal activity in Broward County.

Democrats are organizing an army of lawyers to assist the steal in Florida.

This was a text message sent to The Gateway Pundit on Wednesday.

An Arkansas man was arrested on Election Day for allegedly making death threats against CNN anchor Don Lemon in more than 40 calls he placed to the network's headquarters. Authorities said the man also called MSNBC and two top Democrats in Congress, showing a "pattern of harassment toward certain political affiliations."

Benjamin Craig Matthews, 39, faces five felony counts of terroristic threatening, as well as 13 misdemeanor counts for threats and harassing communications, according to an affidavit filed in Baxter County Circuit Court.

Matthews allegedly called CNN's Atlanta headquarters dozens of times between Oct. 31 and Nov. 2. Those included three calls Oct. 31, and six calls within 23 minutes on both Nov. 1 and 2, the affidavit says.

Matthews allegedly made violent threats against Lemon in several calls. In one of his first calls, he said he would like to "kick the s--- out of" Lemon, the affidavit says. The next day, he asked an operator to connect him to Lemon's "dead body hanging from a tree." In another call he asked to direct his call to "pipe bombs for" Lemon, and in another he talked about "bloody pictures" of Lemon "cut up in small pieces, like the movie Saw," the affidavit says.

An investigator with the Atlanta Police Department tracked the calls to Matthews and referred the case to authorities in Arkansas.

According to the affidavit, Matthews also called Rep. Maxine Waters, D-California, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-New York, the Washington Speakers Bureau, Planned Parenthood, and Stormy Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti. It's unclear what he said in those calls, but the affidavit said they suggested a pattern of political harassment.

Matthews, from Mountain Home, is being held on $15,000 bail. Jail records did not list an attorney for him.

His arrest came less than two weeks after a Florida man, Cesar Sayoc, was arrested for allegedly sending mail bombs to CNN's New York office and to several leading Democrats, including former President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Maxine Waters. Sayoc, who is being held on federal charges, had been living in a van covered with stickers, including ones that said "CNN Sucks" and "Dishonest Media."

Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik told Breitbart News Tonight Thursday evening that the FBI should classify Antifa as a “domestic terror group.” He offered his remarks in an interview with SiriusXM hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak.

Kerik’s comments were made during a discussion of left-wing activists threatening and intimidating Tucker Carlson’s family on Wednesday night outside of the Carlson family’s home in Washington, D.C.

Kerik said, “In the most minimal definition of terrorism, it’s the unlawful use of violence and intimidation — especially against civilians — in pursuit of political aims. Antifa is a domestic terror group. I strongly believe that the FBI and the Department of Justice should classify them as such.”

Ads by Revcontent

Kerik recalled, “Back in the 60s, 70s, and 80s, we had to deal with the Weather Underground, the Black Panther Party, the Black Liberation Army, the Sam Melville–Jonathan Jackson Unit. There were a number of these anti-American leftist communist socialist groups that were doing exactly what Antfa is doing today, and those groups were doing more, which is what I’m afraid of. I’m afraid this will escalate to much more severe violence. Back then, there were bombings [and] assassinations of police officers. It really got out of hand until the FBI classified these groups as domestic terror groups and started to go after them as such.”

Kerik stated, “I think the cities they operate in have to create local ordinances and laws that prevent them from being and remaining anonymous. They have a lot of courage when they have these masks on and nobody can see who they are or identify them. They wouldn’t be standing out there if they didn’t have the ability to remain anonymous.”

Kerik remarked, “I think the FBI and the Department of Justice should lock them up. Lock them up for violating people’s civil rights. … They are trying to intimidate, harass, and threaten [Tucker Carlson] in an attempt to prevent him from doing his job as a member of the press.”

Kerik called for investigating Antifa’s funding and management.

“If they’re investigated, you’re going to get to the financial root of this group,” said Kerik. “I’d love to see who’s paying these nitwits to stand out there in the middle of the night and yell and scream with a bullhorn. They’re not doing it for nothing. They’re not doing it because they just have nothing better to do and they all gathered in free spirit to stand around and act like idiots, and threaten people and scare the hell out of them. … They’re doing it because they were paid.”

Kerik continued, “If the FBI and [Justice Department] got into [Antifa’s] background, started locking them up [and] interviewing them, somebody’s going to flip, and somebody’s going to tell you where they come from, where the money’s coming from, who’s funding the operation, who’s telling them to go out and do these acts of violence, threats, and intimidation. … If you look at the intelligence monitors and the people that capture the images of these people, many of them are the same people, which tells me that they’re being bused [and] transferred. They’re being paid. Somebody’s paying for this.”

Kerik remarked, “If you listen to that tape [and] what went on last night at Tucker Carlson’s house; there were threats, there was intimidation, and it was for political reasons. That falls under the basic definition of terrorism. … They’re breaking the law. Lock them up. Stop them from doing what they’re doing. … This stuff is a crime. Engage them for criminal conduct and get them off the streets. If you do it aggressively, I promise you they will stop.”

Mansour noted Antifa’s rioting in Washington, DC, during President Donald Trump’s inauguration in January of 2017.

Kerik warned, “If somebody doesn’t stop this. It’s only going to get worse. It will progress. You have to stop it. You can’t let this conduct and behavior continue, because if they think they can get away with it, it’s going to get worse. They’re going to step up the violence. It’s got to be addressed now.”

Pollak noted the justification for Antifa’s conduct from Vox’s co-founder Matt Yglesias. Yglesias subsequently deleted all tweets on his Twitter profile after describing Antifa’s harassment of Carlson’s family as “[making] them feel some of the fear that the victims of MAGA-inspired violence feel thanks to the non-stop racial incitement coming from Tucker, Trump, etc.” He further advised people to “empathize with” Carlson’s “victims.”

CNN figures have repeatedly supported, defended, and misrepresented Antifa, including anchors Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo. A 2017 CNN report claimed Antifa leftists “seek peace through violence,” subsequently scrubbing the claim in its headline.

Kerik concluded, “The thing that frightens me more than these groups doing this is the deafening silence of the senior Democratic leaders in this country. Everybody should be outraged. Every political figure in this country should be outraged by this behavior. Everybody should be calling for it to stop [and] doing whatever they can to make it stop. Yet on the left, on the Democratic side, you have a deafening silence. Nobody is doing a damn thing to stop this. … There are people in government that don’t have a problem with this.”

On Wednesday evening, an Antifa mob descended on Tucker Carlson’s home in Washington, D.C. to threaten his family. The mob stood outside chanting, “We know where you sleep,” and one person pounded on the front door and screamed; that person apparently cracked the front door. Carlson’s wife locked herself in the pantry and called 911. Carlson has four children, but nobody was home. As Allahpundit reports at HotAir, it gets worse:

They made it clear that they were there to terrorize Carlson’s family. One of the “protesters” allegedly threatened to bring a pipe bomb to the home; another said the Carlsons should “leave town.” According to WaPo, a Facebook item posted by Smash Racism D.C. read “Fascists are vulnerable. Confront them at their homes!”

The Antifa members have their defenders on the Left. Vox.com co-founder Matt Yglesias, the Ralph Wiggum of political commentary, tweeted out his defense of the mob:

Jennifer Rubin, who was driven around the bend by President Trump’s election, sent out this tweet:

This, of course, is absurd. Disagree with Sarah Huckabee Sanders all you want – you can’t invade her house. But Democrats and media members have been encouraging this type of mob action for months, from Maxine Waters to Don Lemon.

Meanwhile, the media have reacted in shock and horror to the White House’s decision to temporarily revoke the “hard pass” for CNN’s Jim Acosta after Acosta badgered Trump and refused to give up the microphone, in the process coming into physical contact with a White House intern. Acosta is a terrible reporter, a grandstanding opinion machine masquerading as a hard-charging objective journalist, and his behavior in the press room has been egregious for months; it would be worthwhile to stop giving him questions simply to allow other, better White House reporters to take up more time. CNN, after all, has other White House reporters available.

But the press have taken Acosta’s temporary rejection as a deeply disturbing, malign attack on the First Amendment itself. That’s absurd.

Now, two things can be wrong at once. The White House could be better served by giving Acosta back his press pass and then freezing him out and the media should stop promoting mob violence against other commentators like Carlson. But the media’s disproportionate response to mob violence directed at a journalist’s home, compared with their coverage of Acosta’s momentary time out, is rather telling.

You may recall the story of the man who raced out amidst gunfire from ISIS to save a little Iraqi girl.

It was Mattos who was laying down cover fire so that man could save the little girl and Mattos was shot just as they were carrying her away.

You can see more on his amazing story and the moment he was shot during the rescue here:

“We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them,” Lemon said on his CNN show.

Here’s what Mattos had to say to Don Lemon:

After surviving three wars, a gunshot wound, a near-fatal drowning, a failed parachute, Taliban ambushes, ISIS snipers, mortars, mine-fields, suicide bombers and laying down my life for the cause of freedom while fighting shoulder-to-shoulder with my brother Arabs, Asians, Blacks, Hispanics, Christians, Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Animists, and Atheists, I have now returned home to the USA where a CNN host has labeled me as a radicalized right wing terrorist simply because of my gender and the color of my skin.

I represent just one of the hundreds of thousands of conservative white men who have fought to preserve freedom in this great Nation and in other nations. My forefathers are the 3% who founded this Republic against the might of the British Army. It was white Conservative men who died by the tens of thousands after charging into our southern states to free our black brothers from the slavery imposed on them by the Liberal left. We were the ones who acknowledged that women have a right to vote. We held the line in WWI and charged the beaches of Normandy in WWII. We have fought for freedom and liberty for generations and we continue to do so today alongside all of our brothers and sisters regardless of their race or religion.

In the early 1930s, Hitler said the same thing about the Jews that Don Lemon of CNN just said about white men. This is the true face of the Democratic Party. First they enslaved and killed blacks, and now they use them to spew hatred and lies against the very people who have fought for generations to free them and uplift them.

Remember that when you go to vote.

One final thought: To make a point, I have referred to myself as a “white male” in the previous sentences multiple times, but I must make it clear that I identify as simply “American,” not as “white” or “male” or “Republican.”

Although blatantly racist and hateful, do not let Don Lemon’s ignorant words drive you into viewing yourself only by your race and religion. Identity politics does not lead to freedom. It only leads to hatred and division and an “us vs. them” mentality.

If CNN does not fire Don Lemon immediately, it only goes to show that they are truly the “enemy of the people.”

— Ephraim Mattos, Former US Navy SEAL

CNN has not made any comment about Lemon’s remarks.

And Lemon has not only defended his attack but doubled down on it, saying we don’t need to worry about people 1,000 miles away, apparently referencing various migrant caravans heading to the U.S. through Mexico some of whom have already attacked Mexican police. Lemon reiterated that the biggest threats were “home-grown.”

In a Thursday news release, the organization called on CNN President Jeff Zucker to participate in a discussion about Lemon’s remarks.

In the news release, co-chairs Bishop Council Nedd, Stacy Washington, and Horace Cooper wrote, “Within a space of five seconds, CNN’s Don Lemon went from saying we shouldn’t demonize people to broadly labeling white men as our nation’s ‘biggest terror threat.’”

“That’s not responsible journalism,” the release adds. “This cannot stand.”

“CNN President Jeff Zucker recently called out the White House for its criticism of the media, saying President Trump doesn’t comprehend the importance of the words he uses,” the statement continues. “It’s time for Zucker to put his own house in order — starting with explaining how Don Lemon’s outrageous statement can stand in light of Zucker’s call for civility.” – READ MORE

Don Lemon stunned the world or at least those living in America when he went on live TV and said white men are the biggest terror threats we face. It was laughable on so many levels it is hard to know where to start.

Let’s just say there are lunatics that live among us and their skin color has nothing to do with it. Some people are just troubled but contrast that with our enemies in some hostile parts of the world, the kind Former US Navy SEAL, Ephraim Mattos knows all too well, and you get a reality Lemon won’t admit.

Not only did Mottos fight against the Taliban and ISIS but after he finished serving he volunteered to go back and help civilians who were stuck inside those war zones. Talk about a hero and yes his actions do afford him the right to be heard on this sensitive topic and what he has to say about CNN and Don Lemon needs to be shouted from the mountaintops. He wrote:

“After surviving three wars, a gunshot wound, a near fatal drowning, a failed parachute, Taliban ambushes, ISIS snipers, mortars, mine-fields, suicide bombers and laying down my life for the cause of freedom while fighting shoulder-to-shoulder with my brother Arabs, Asians, Blacks, Hispanics, Christians, Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Animists, and Atheists, I have now returned home to the USA where a CNN host has labeled me as a radicalized right wing terrorist simply because of my gender and the color of my skin.

Mattos teamed up with New York Times bestselling author Scott McEwen (American Sniper) to write the new book, City of Death: Humanitarian Warriors in the Battle of Mosul — released October 23rd from Center Street / Hachette Book Group.

In City of Death, Mattos recounts in vivid detail what he saw and felt on the frontlines of the war on ISIS. While volunteering with the Free Burma Rangers, Mattos evacuated the wounded, conducted rescue missions, and at times fought shoulder-to-shoulder with the Iraqi Army against ISIS. Filled with raw and emotional descriptions of what it's like to come face-to-face with death, this is the harrowing and uplifting true story of a small group of men who risked everything to save the lives of the Iraqi people and who followed the credence, "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

Until being shot by ISIS on a suicidal rescue mission, Mattos witnessed unexplainable acts of courage and sacrifice by the Free Burma Rangers, who, while under heavy machine gun and mortar fire, assaulted across ISIS minefields, used themselves as human shields, and sprinted down ISIS-infested streets - all to retrieve wounded civilians.

CNN host, Don Lemon doubled down on his controversial comments on white men being the nation’s biggest terror threat Wednesday evening, saying people who were upset with his comments were “missing the entire point.”

On Tuesday night, Lemon said, “We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them. There is no travel ban on them.”

On Wednesday, rather than apologize for the comments, Lemon took them a step further, saying, “I said that the biggest terror threat in this country comes from radicals on the far right, primarily white men. That angered some people.”

He continued:

“But let’s put emotion aside and look at the cold hard facts. The evidence is overwhelming. A recent report from the Government Accountability Office shows that. Even though more people died in attacks connected to Islamic extremists, the vast majority of deadly attacks in this country from 2001 to 2016 were carried out by far-right violent extremists.”

Sixty-four percent of voters believe the media have divided the country, compared to just 56 percent who believe the same about President Trump.

A Morning Consult poll released Monday asked 2,435 voters if Trump and the national media have done more to divide than unite the country, and the media came out the big loser.

Even a plurality of Democrats, 46 percent, believe the media divide the country. Eighty-eight percent believe the same about Trump.

Two-thirds of independents, 67 percent, see the national media as divisive, while 54 percent say the same of Trump.

Considering they are most often under attack by the left-wing national media (e.g. NBC calls Trump supporters Nazis), it is no surprise that 80 percent of Republicans see the media as divisive, while only 25 percent say the same about Trump.

There are two remarkable things about this poll. The first is how tone-deaf the media are to how they are perceived by a massive majority of the country, even by a plurality of their fellow Democrats.

The national media constantly harp about things like “division” and “partisanship” but always do so within the context of bashing Republicans, specifically Trump.

One notable instance occurred on Monday when CNN’s Don Lemon perfectly crystallized the establishment media’s approach to “unity.”

“We have to stop demonizing people,” the left-wing Lemon said as his words that followed demonized white men: “The biggest terror threat in this country is white men … and we have to start doing something about them.”

The other remarkable thing about this poll is that Trump is a politician, a position that cannot avoid a certain amount of divisiveness and partisanship. But our media are supposed to be neutral, which means they should be about as divisive as a baseball umpire.

But, of course, the media are not. In fact, the media are the bitterest of divisive partisans, an institution desperate to divide us on race, gender, and any other classification they can conjure up.

The good news is that voters see right through the media.

If nothing else, Trump has done this country a great service by forcing the media to reveal their true selves. Their frustration and hatred towards Trump, a Republican who refuses to buckle to their partisan nonsense, is now on display for everyone to see.

Morning Consult took a poll in July, more than 18 months after Trump became president, and found that 28 percent of voters have “a lot” of confidence in the presidency. But…

Only 13 percent said the same of television news, while 14 percent said the same of newspaper outlets.

CNN host Don Lemon is facing criticism for declaring that “white men” are the biggest terror threat to the United States and questioning, “What do we do about that?”

CNN's Don Lemon said people need to realize that white men radicalized to the right are "the biggest terror threat" to the country on Monday night.

Lemon lamented that a travel ban was put on Muslims because of terror fears but there is not a "white guy ban" for radicalized white males. The CNN host said we have to "stop demonizing people" and realize this is a real threat.

"So, we have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them. There is no travel ban on them. There is no ban on -- you know, they had the Muslim ban. There is no white guy ban," he said.

DON LEMON, CNN HOST: I keep trying to point out to people and not to demonize any one group or any one ethnicity. But we keep thinking that the biggest terror threat is something else, someone people who are marching, you know, towards the border, like it's imminent.

And the last time they did this, a couple hundred people came and they -- you know, most of them did get into the country, most of them tired-- you know, got tuckered out before they made it to the border.

So, we have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them. There is no travel ban on them. There is no ban on -- you know, they had the Muslim ban. There is no white guy ban.

So, what do we do about that? And first of all, let me just say this. Maurice Stallard is the name and Vicki Jones. And they have been lost in all of this. Two people who were killed on Wednesday that you talked about.

They have been lost in this, and I know that people feel that this story has not gotten enough coverage, and we will honor them tonight in our program.

Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett on Wednesday called Don Lemon "a racist, hypocrite and idiot all rolled up into one" after the CNN anchor said that "the biggest terror threat in this country is white men."

"CNN’s Don Lemon has now removed all doubt that he is a racist, hypocrite and idiot all rolled into one," Jarrett tweeted. "Quite the accomplishment."

Jarrett, a former MSNBC and Court TV anchor, joined other media members, primarily conservatives, who slammed Lemon for comments made Monday night and have since gone viral.

"We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them," Lemon said to fellow CNN anchor Chris Cuomo as the latter handed off his show.

"There is no travel ban on them. There is no ban on — you know, they had the Muslim ban. There is no white guy ban," Lemon added.

Lemon was referring to a ban preventing travel to the U.S. by nationals from five Muslim-majority countries introduced by the Trump administration in early 2017. The Supreme Court upheld the ban in June on a 5-4 vote.

Responses from other Fox News hosts and pundits quickly followed after Lemon's comments made the rounds online.

Lemon, who joined CNN in 2006, has anchored "CNN Tonight" since 2014.

FOX NEWS:

CNN host Don Lemon is under fire after a disturbing, on-air rant in which he declared that “white men” are the biggest terror threat to the United States, noted that “there is no white-guy ban” and wondered aloud, “what do we do about that?”

“Cuomo Prime Time” namesake Chris Cuomo and Lemon were discussing the recent shooting of two black men in Kentucky that is being investigated as a hate crime when his Monday guest and colleague took the conversation off the rails.

“I keep trying to point out to people not to demonize any one group or any one ethnicity, but we keep thinking that the biggest terror threat is something else,” Lemon said. “Some people who are marching towards the border like it’s eminent. And the last time they did this, a couple of hundred people came and they, you know, most of them didn’t get into the country. Most of them got tuckered out before they even made it to the border,” Lemon told his CNN colleague. “So we have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them.”

Lemon then pondered solutions as Cuomo– a privileged white male whose father was a Democratic Governor of New York — looked on.

“There is no travel ban on them,” Lemon said. “There is no ban on… you know, they had the Muslim ban. There is no ‘white guy ban.’ So what do we do about that?”

Cuomo responded by telling Lemon he was “making the right point.”

It’s still hard to believe that Don Lemon went on television and said what he said the other day. That kind of racism has no place in society and the fact that Democrats continue to spew it is just abhorrent. If you missed it, here’s what the CNN pundit had to say about white people.

From Real Clear Politics:

DON LEMON, CNN HOST: I keep trying to point out to people and not to demonize any one group or any one ethnicity. But we keep thinking that the biggest terror threat is something else, someone people who are marching, you know, towards the border, like it’s imminent.

And the last time they did this, a couple hundred people came and they — you know, most of them did get into the country, most of them tired– you know, got tuckered out before they made it to the border.

There is no travel ban on them. There is no ban on — you know, they had the Muslim ban. There is no white guy ban.

That’s racist. There’s no way around it. Lumping all white people together and then demonizing the entire group is as racist as it gets. But, no one at CNN seems to care.

Fox News’ Janice Dean cared and she let Don Lemon know it via Twitter.

NEW YORK (AP) — CNN isn’t commenting about Don Lemon’s statement that white men represent the biggest terrorist threat in the country.

Lemon’s statement, on his show Monday, attracted criticism in conservative circles. He was talking about the negative attention given to a caravan of potential refugees in central America. Meanwhile, white men are the suspects in recent shootings of two blacks in Kentucky and at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Lemon said that, “we have to stop demonizing people and realize that the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them.”

A CNN spokeswoman said Wednesday neither Lemon nor the network would speak more about it.

The Federalist

The notion that a person’s race predisposes him to act violently is unequivocally racist. It’s also easily debunked by a cursory reading of history. But in today’s environment, where identity politics strips Americans of their accomplishment, ideas, and actions so they can be judged by their melanin, it’s an unsurprising thing to hear.

“I keep trying to point out to people and, not to demonize any one group or any one ethnicity,” CNN host Don Lemon explained to his colleague Chris Cuomo, before telling him that “the biggest terror threat in this country is white men,” adding that “there is no travel ban on them”

This isn’t a new accusation. Now, Lemon is right that the vast majority of white shooters are men. He’s also correct that men are more violent than women. The majority of men in the United States are white. So some quick back-of-the-envelope calculation informs us that most shooters are probably going to be white men, just as most murderers in Arab countries are Arab men and most murderers in Asian countries are Asian men and so on.

A terrorist is a person who uses illegal violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims. This is not a movement. These white men have no palpable ideological or philosophical connection. They are not part of a concerted effort. They do not idolize the same people or subscribe to the same set of ideas. They do not share a worldview. Most of them do not kill in the name of “whiteness.” Few of them have a coherent message. I have as much to do with the Pittsburgh shooter as Lemon does.

The left-winger who yelled “This is for health care” before attempting to assassinate Republican congressional leadership in 2017 — somehow Lemon overlooked this event in his rant about angry white men — has nothing to do with the man who yelled “All Jews must die” when killing 11 innocent people at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. There is no nexus between the person threatening Republicans with ricin letters and the person threatening Democrats with pipe bombs.

Whether travel bans from terror-ravaged nations are effective or necessary is a worthy debate. But unlike Islamic terrorists, who destabilize entire regions, enslave entire communities, and in engage in decades-long campaigns against civilians, white men only share a hue. There is no infrastructure to assist them in their murders. There is no nation-state egging them on and abetting their efforts around the world. There are no big-money donors funding them. There is no movement recruiting them to kill, then rewarding their families afterwards.

Moreover, there is no rational or decent person in America, on either side of the partisan debate, justifying their actions. No matter how hard Democrats try to smear half the country as a party of budding brown-shirts, there is no political base for their violent ideology.

Unlike Islamic terrorism—which is propelled by a set of ideas and beliefs that has been adopted by people of every color in every area of the world—random white shooters do not generate massive numbers of refugees whom other nations are compelled to deal with. Governments don’t have to spend trillions of dollars to protect their citizens from this constant threat.

It’s also true Islamic radicals haven’t been as successful at targeting Americans lately because, after a highly effective day of carnage back in 2001, we became vigilant. The price has been high, in treasure, and sometimes in civil rights—another negative externality of Islamic terrorism. Does Lemon demand a similar domestic effort aimed at white men for merely being white men?

Radical Islam is an ideology that’s quite popular in the world. White supremacy is a fringe belief that generates outsized coverage because of the horrible actions of some individuals and the political upside some in the media see in giving them attention. Stringing together every act of random violence in the nation—no matter how ambiguous, disconnected, and muddled the political motives of the perpetrators might be—does not make a terror problem. Even if it did, violence is not the monopoly of any group. In the past century, genocides have been perpetrated in Europe, Africa, and Asia.

Some people feed off the idea of drumming people they find objectionable out of public discourse. I’m not sure someone who uses hyperbole in the heat of a national debate deserves this fate. But in an environment where people are (ostensibly) thrown off their TV shows for a dumb statement about Halloween costumes, it seems rather extraordinary that others can unambiguously refer to “white men” as terrorists without repercussion.

Democrats have a history of rhetoric that glorifies and encourages political violence

Remember that time American media was consumed with news that the deadly poison ricin – contact with the skin can be deadly – was sent to President Trump, Republican Senator Ted Cruz, Defense Secretary James Mattis, and the Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral John Richardson? Remember all of the introspective opinion pieces wondering if attacks on the president had gone too far? Or if claiming that Republican policies kill people, might not be an incitement to violence?

Me either. But who can remember all the way back to October 2?

There are a few other differences between then and now. The target then was the president, his Secretary of Defense, a senior naval officer, and a Republican Senator. And then, wasn’t there more than an implication that Republicans have it coming? After all, Democrats routinely claim that Republicans are not just cruel but that, as Nancy Pelosi said ‘millions, hundreds of thousands will die’ if Republicans get their way. What stronger language is there than that? And if you believe it, then violence against Republicans becomes a justifiable – perhaps even heroic — act of self-defense.

That was certainly the case when James Hodgkinson attempted the mass murder of Republican Congressmen and staffers playing softball last year sending Rep Steve Scalise and four others to the hospital. Hodgkinson was a volunteer for socialist Bernie Sanders who declared ‘It’s time to destroy Trump & Co.’ in one of many anti-Republicans social media posts. And CNN claimed in a laudatory profile that the violent left-wing paramilitary group Antifa ‘seeks peace through violence’ while its anchors Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon have both defended the group’s violent streak because, as Cuomo said, ‘fighting against hate matters.’ But such action is wrong not just for the obvious reasons, but because it is an attempt to appropriate more than one’s legitimate share of political influence. Every vote is supposed to count the same, but by physically imposing on an elected representative, agitators are trying increase their own power at the expense of their fellow citizens using fear rather than reason.

The other difference between this spate of packages and the attack on Trump, Cruz, Mattis, and Richardson it that the ricin attack was real and it was potentially deadly. The letters really contained ricin. Whereas, the packages sent to Democrat grandees including Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, George Soros, Maxine Waters, and Joe Biden were apparently inert and were made just to look dangerous according to recent reporting.

Since none of the packages detonated, and possibly were not able to detonate, Occam’s Razor demands that we confront the most likely choices: Either the sender intended harm but was grossly incompetent or the sender never intended harm and meant the packages to be a form of agitprop.

The notes that accompanied the packages read like parodies of how committed progressives think Republicans speak. They are laughably hyperbolic attempts to mimic redneck sensibilities and hillbilly patois including, ‘Git r done’, a dated homage to the Blue Collar Comedy Tour’s Larry The Cable Guy character. The notes play to every Democrat stereotype of the American deplorables who support Donald Trump. In case you didn’t know, both the Left and establishment Right, known affectionately as Conservatism, Inc., are sure that everyone who voted for Trump is married to a sibling – or wants to be – chews tobacco, and handles snakes during Sunday worship services. And these notes play off those caricatures.

I’m inclined to issue the standard disclaimer abhorring violence in politics. I do. Nonetheless there is something absurd about it. Why must I engage in this ritual cleansing? I have never encouraged or condoned political violence. Nor has anyone I know. So to be forced to disclaim it brings a whiff of guilt, as though conservatives are known for supporting violence so I better let everyone know I’m not one of those conservatives. It’s a slander and an insult up with which we should not put. After all, it was Eric Holder, not Jeff Sessions, who told the faithful, ‘when they go low we kick ‘em’ and it was Obama telling his adoring fans to find people who disagree with them and ‘get in their face.’ And let’s not forget the Justice Editor of the hard left group Think Progress who advocated harassing Republicans ‘where they eat, where they sleep, and where they work’ less than 30 days ago.

Yet, on the day the first packages were delivered CNN ran an on-air headline saying that there was a ‘manhunt for serial bomber going after Trump’s targets.’ Get it? Democrats have a history of rhetoric that glorifies and encourages political violence, of winking at it when it comes from groups like Antifa, and then of claiming the unknown sender of the suspicious packages was doing Trump’s bidding.

Perhaps the people whose sense of their own moral superiority allows them to think that harassment, intimidation, and physical assault are justified by the higher calling of their own side should take some responsibility. But I supposed they would claim that was blaming the victim.

On the other hand, a cynic might wonder if these packages didn’t earn their recipients a certain amount of social standing or street cred within the Progressive universe. And if so, one would be forced to wonder if, given that the packages weren’t, in fact, dangerous, if they didn’t engender a certain amount of jealousy from Democrats who didn’t make the cut. After all, some presidential contenders like Bernie Sanders were snubbed – but maybe the prankster didn’t know which of the socialist senators three homes he should send it to.

Breitbart

Published  3 months ago

On Tuesday evening, establishment Republican consultant Rick Wilson said the GOP establishment donor class must find a way to “put a bullet” in GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.

In an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Wilson conceded that “Trump is still a very powerful force right now” because he appeals to part of the of the conservative base that Wilson said was activated by his “nativist” message. Wilson insisted that the donor class “can’t just sit back on the sidelines and say, ‘oh well, don’t worry, this will all work itself out.’”

“They’re still going to have to go out and put a bullet in Donald Trump,” Wilson said. “And that’s a fact.”

Republican establishment figures who have underestimated Trump since he entered the race are reportedly looking to raise millions to try to derail Trump and knock him out of the race. Wilson added that the Republican establishment must figure out a way to find a candidate who can successfully “post up” against Hillary Clinton because “neither Donald Trump or Ben Carson is ready to go up against the Clinton machine. Wilson claimed that Trump and Carson are “obviously not ready for primetime.”

Wilson, who tried to use the disgusting rape threat made against his daughter to score political points against Breitbart News and Breitbart News Editor-at-Large John Nolte, has denigrated Trump and his supporters throughout the election cycle.

During a September CNN interview, Wilson told Erin Burnett that Trump could “eat a live baby on television” and Trump’s supporters “would think it’s the greatest thing in America.” He has also demeaned Trump’s supporters as “low-information” rubes and has likened them to “post-rational” conspiracy theorists.

In an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon, Wilson said Trump’s message “doesn’t have to make sense” for his supporters to back him and compared Trump to someone who is a conspiracy theorist like “your cranky uncle at Thanksgiving” who always has a theory about the Bilderbergers or the World Bank, or the IMF, or the Trilateral Commission.”

Trump has never referred to any of these entities on the stump–all Trump has said is that America has signed unfair trade deals in which America’s stupid leaders let other countries take advantage of the U.S. to the detriment of American workers. But Wilson claimed that Trump has a “very strange, sort of parochial, old-fashioned view of the world and the international economy.”

“And this thing, I’m going to bring back the jobs from China. OK. The $2-an-hour jobs making wire harnesses for computers. It’s just a fantasy,” Wilson said.

Trump has been like Teflon in this election cycle because so many Americans are fed up with out-of-touch establishment consultants like Wilson and their preferred candidates like Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio. Wilson and his ilk charge candidates hefty sums to “advise” them on how to appeal “regular Americans,” but he and the consultant class have not only shown that they are clueless about independent voters and Reagan Democrats who determine elections, but, perhaps more disturbingly, revealed how much disdain and contempt they have for blue-collar Americans of all backgrounds who are not versed in the lingo of the tactician class.

GOP establishment consultants often preach that “politics is about addition” when taking shots at conservatives for rhetoric that they do not like or think will turn off “independents,” but those like Wilson have been quick to attack Trump and his supporters with inflammatory language that they would never tolerate from conservative candidates and their grassroots supporters.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo kissed Don Lemon on the cheek after both of them attacked Sarah Sanders during the short period of time where Cuomo’s show ends and Lemon’s begins on Wednesday night.

Sanders had called out CNN’s top brass Jeff Zucker for blaming Wednesday’s suspicious packages on President Donald Trump.

“She’s the press secretary. She says, the president said that no act of violence like this should be tolerated, and then you call him out instead of calling for unity. How dare you do that? You know, look, all of you guys have to make your own lot,” Cuomo said. “I talk to you guys in the White House about this on a regular basis, what you ignore, what you empower and you are part of the same message.”

“If you’re going to call out Jeff Zucker for what he said when your president was up at a rally today and he didn’t say any of the things he needed to say, when you wrote the words for him, that’s on you too,” Cuomo continued.

“I’m glad you’re here. I’m glad Jeff Zucker is here. I’m glad Jeff said what he said. I’m glad Bob the security guy’s here. I’m glad Jackie is here. I’m glad Brenda is here. I’m so happy you guys are here because this is life and death. All the folks who are around here, Kevin, all of you guys, I’m so glad you’re here and alive today because we could have been mourning you guys,” Lemon added.

Cuomo responded, “I love you, brother. Have a good night and a good show.”

They then held hands and Cuomo leaned in for a kiss on Lemon’s cheek.

Earlier on Wednesday, CNN president Jeff Zucker condemned the president’s rhetoric suggesting that it was responsible for the person who chose to send CNN an explosive device.

Sanders responded to Zucker saying that the president called on all Americans to come together and yet Zucker “chose to attack and divide.”

During his Thursday night Montana rally, President Donald Trump praised Republican Rep. Greg Gianforte for assaulting a reporter— even while we are in the midst of unanswered question about missing Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

While talking to CNN’s Don Lemon, Jim Acosta explained how Trump’s rallies only evoke fear. He detailed that he saw a Trump supporter doing wrestling moves in the crowd while Trump continued his attack on reporters.

“Not just once but twice tonight the president is making jokes about assaulting reporters while the whole world is demanding answers about the murder of a journalist who died in the most gruesome and vicious way possible,” Acosta said.

Adding, “When the president made that joke about Greg Gianforte assaulting Ben Jacobs, I looked over to the crowd [and saw] one Trump supporter doing pro-wrestling moves, doing body slam type gestures in the crowd. So, the crowd was obviously eating this stuff up.”

“People wonder whether or not there’s a cause and effect —whether or not the president’s rhetoric plants seeds of violence in his own supporters. I think it’s pretty evident,” he said.

I thought President Trump was a total failure, according to Don Lemon, Rachel Maddow, Jim Acosta and the rest of that crowd.

So MSN reports that President Trump will likely win a second term while Joe Biden is at the top of their nominee’s list? Is he their very best? Whatever happened to Cory Booker and Kamala Harris? They are both, um, “articulate and bright and clean and nice-looking” black persons.

Or does Joe figure he can beat them down easily?

More from Wayne Dupree

Biden might be the closest thing to Trump the Democrats have and might be a decent candidate according to their definition. However, his recent comments calling Trump voters “dregs” is a loser. Also, his party will vote along identity politics lines and it getting the nomination would be hard for him.

Americans are becoming more likely to think President Donald Trump will win a second term in office, while Joe Biden stands atop a crowded field of Democrats perhaps looking to replace him, according to a new CNN Poll conducted by SSRS.

The public is split over whether they think the President will win a second term — 46% say he will and 47% say he won’t. But that’s a steep improvement for him since March, when 54% of adults said they thought he’d lose his bid for a second term. The share seeing a second Trump win in the offing has risen across party lines. The increase is a bit sharper among men (up 8 points), independents (from 39% in March to 47% now) and those who are enthusiastic about voting in this year’s midterms (from 37% in March to 46% now).

The President’s partisans are just as likely to want him renominated now as they were in March: Seventy-four percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents say he should be the party’s nominee in 2020, and 21% would rather see someone else at the top of the ticket.

Great, put Michael Bloomberg in there. By 2020, we’ll have closed the border, a healthy share of African American voters will be Republican, and it will be four years of great Trump progress.

As for Biden, he is just the distraction. He won’t run, and if he does, he’ll gladly hand it over to the real candidate they have in place then.

Democrats have relied on empty slogans, and early 20th century Marxism that has been demonstrated to be not only economically ruinous but blood-soaked and dangerous, and cults of personality for so long that they know no other way.

Barack Obama was and is a Pyrrhic victory for them who needed the constant hogging of the spotlight. When his term ended so did the fugue state of the Democrats especially as the media ignored midterm losses, state-local losses, etc.

Hillary Says Husband Didn’t Abuse Power With Lewinsky; She Was Adult At The Time

Their bench is not empty per se but is filled with Obama-style Marxists who lack his red-herring speechifying. It’s also filled with people who don’t even identify as Democrats. Those that do are old, tired and not very bright anyway.

I laugh at anyone who takes Biden seriously as a candidate. He has already run twice I believe and never made it to March in the primary season.

Former NFL running back Herschel Walker characterized a recent CNN segment about Kanye West’s support of Donald Trump as “despicable” and said he wondered why anchor Don Lemon and commentators Bakari Sellers and Tara Setmayer aren’t taken “off the air.”

A segment of “CNN Tonight” received sharp criticism Tuesday for remarks about the rapper’s support of the president that critics say are racist.

In the segment, Mr. Sellers said, “Kanye West is what happens when Negroes don’t read,” and Ms. Setmayer calling West “the token Negro” of the administration.

Mr. Lemon laughed throughout the comments. Mr. Sellers, Ms. Setmayer and Mr. Lemon are all black.

After the swift first round of criticism, Mr. Walker added his thoughts Thursday on Twitter:

Mr. Walker began his professional football career with the USFL’s New Jersey Generals, which Mr. Trump owned. He was named co-chair of Mr. Trump’s Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition earlier this year, and he supported Republican Jack Kingston in a 2014 U.S. Senate race in his home state of Georgia.

What happens when you combine the classic “Republicans pounce” media narrative with a healthy dose of whataboutism? You get the sad spectacle of the last few days, in which the media has rationalized and minimized genuinely menacing, troubling left-wing mob action — because, after all, there can be only one villain on the national stage.

First, let’s begin with the easy distinctions. There is a yawning legal and moral gap between First Amendment–protected activity, no matter how angry and boisterous, and a true mob. Screaming protesters picketing on a sidewalk are in a fundamentally different position from screaming protesters who invade private property to chase a senator from his meal. Angry demonstrators chanting in front of the Supreme Court are different from people who break police cordons and pound on its doors. Handmaids silently mourning the birth of Gilead are not the same as men and women who disrupt Senate hearings and votes.

Legally protected protest is safe. It’s consistent with the best traditions of American dissent. It’s truly what “democracy looks like.” Mob action, by contrast, is dangerous. It creates imminent risk of personal harm. It’s designed to frighten and intimidate. There is no place for the mob in a constitutional republic.

So why are leading Democrats stoking mob action, and why are members of the media attacking Republicans who raise the alarm?

On CNN, Brooke Baldwin told Daily Beast columnist Matt Lewis, “Oh, you’re not going to use the mob word here,” when he condemned protesters who drove Ted and Heidi Cruz out of a restaurant.

Also on CNN, Don Lemon objected to the use of the word “mob” to describe the same incident, declaring, “No, it’s not mob behavior. It’s people who are upset and they’re angry with the way the country is going.” Well, yes, they’re upset and angry, but Lemon was fundamentally wrong when he also said that the Constitution allows people to protest “wherever you want.”

NPR, in an article that included descriptions of death threats against Republican senators, framed the story this way: “Republicans Seize On ‘Angry Mob’ Mantra To Keep Their Midterm Base Fired Up.”

Then there’s the whataboutism. Dear media, there is no comparison between a “lock her up” chant at a controlled-entry rally and the kinds of direct, in-your-face actions we’ve seen from #Resistance protesters or the Antifa street takeovers we’ve seen in Portland and elsewhere. Now, if that same Trump crowd surged out of the arena, broke through police barriers, and pounded on the doors of government buildings, we’d have a mob.

It is a simple fact that prominent Democratic politicians and left-wing activists are making dangerous calls for direct action, and it’s a simple fact that #Resistance protesters are crossing dangerous lines. Remember this, from Maxine Waters?

Remember this since-deleted tweet from ThinkProgress’s Ian Millhiser?

Presidential contender Cory Booker urged protestors to “get up in the face of some congresspeople.” Former attorney general Eric Holder said — to loud cheers — “When they go low, we kick them” (before assuring the crowd that he didn’t mean anything inappropriate). Members of the media rightly had no problem condemning Trump when he called for violence in response to protests at his campaign rallies. Why the reluctance to engage with Democratic threats?

We cannot — we must not — forget that only the heroism of police officers and the terrible aim of a vicious progressive terrorist saved America from a history-altering massacre of GOP officials last year. We cannot and must not look at the images of men screaming inches from the face of Republican women and think, “This is acceptable.” Watch this clip again, from the last wave of mob action this summer, and tell me it’s not dangerous:

It’s time for Democrats — and members of the media — to dial back the rhetoric. It’s time to stop excusing, rationalizing, and minimizing behavior that is dangerous, menacing, and threatening. When public disorder threatens, and when we’re one wayward shove or impulsive shot from a truly ugly moment, it’s imperative for the people who aspire to lead to shed their preferred narratives and unite behind a single, common idea: Dissent, yes. Mobs, no.

James Hodgkinson seems to have slipped down the memory hole.

Hodgkinson was the left-wing activist who accused Donald Trump and Mike Pence of treason and — “fueled by rage against Republican legislators,” as the Virginia attorney general put it — attempted to massacre a group of Republican congressmen practicing for a baseball game. He shot Representative Steve Scalise, along with a Capitol Police officer and two others, and very likely would have murdered a goodly chunk of the GOP caucus if not for the police assigned to protect Scalise, the majority whip. Senator Rand Paul was there, too, and escaped injury — that time: A few months later, he was attacked while mowing his lawn, suffering six broken ribs. The man who attacked him, Rene Boucher, is a left-wing Chomskyite social-media rage-artist who wrote about his desire to see someone “fry Trump’s gonads.” In 2013, a gunman attacked the conservative Family Research Council. In 2016, Micah Xavier Johnson massacred police officers in Dallas. Before that, five men associated with the Occupy movement made plans to blow up a bridge in Ohio.

We have a memory, a faint one, of Democrats lecturing Republicans about their “tone” not so long ago, something about Sarah Palin and metaphorical crosshairs.

We are a long way from arguing about graphic design.

The Democrats in 2018 seem to have taken the wrong lesson from Hodgkinson and the rest: They have embraced stalking and terror as political tactics. The so-called antifa have firebombed college campuses and committed political violence in order to silence dissenting speakers and to bully students into political conformity; Democrats have taken up stalking with gusto, recently chasing Ted Cruz and his wife out of a restaurant, while Representative Dave Brat recently discovered stalkers photographing his cars and property; police cordons have been broken, and buildings have been entered illegally; Senator Susan Collins has been threatened with rape. Hillary Clinton told her gang: “You cannot be civil.”

An angry crowd at a town hall is protest, even when it is vulgar or unruly. Protest is part of democracy. But stalking and assault are not protest. Arson is not protest. The destruction of property is not protest.

This is terrorism — the attempt to instill in people the fear of physical harm or death in the service of a political agenda. This terrorism has been undertaken with the encouragement of Democratic elected officials and party grandees ranging from Senator Cory Booker to former attorney general Eric Holder. It has been justified and minimized by left-leaning media figures such as Don Lemon.

The Left is in the grip of mass hysteria. Unable to get their way through the ordinary democratic process, the Democrats have resorted to extraordinary tactics, from the smear campaign organized against Brett Kavanaugh to attempting to pound down the doors of the Supreme Court. (We’re betting on the 13-ton bronze door.) They now insist that institutions of American government ranging from the Senate to the Electoral College to the Supreme Court are illegitimate because . . . they’re a little unclear on that part, but they are sure that they are not getting their way, and that’s enough for them.

It’s a temper tantrum, true, but a temper tantrum thrown by antifa thugs is a riot.

A screaming mob cornering someone in an elevator is not ordinary democratic discourse. It is a campaign of intimidation, and it should be recognized as such.

The first, best, and most effective remedy for this kind of undemocratic mob behavior is the ballot box. Republicans are right to make an issue of Democratic mob attacks in the upcoming elections, and voters ought to take it into account. The Democrats have shown themselves incapable of responsible political action, and incapable of responsible government, too. There are those who make the law and those who break the law, and leading Democrats have aligned themselves, enthusiastically, with the latter. They should be kept as far from the levers of power as voters can put them.

So CNN is really OK with calling a black man on air a "token negro" putting on a "minstrel show?"

Fox News

Published  4 months ago

Football legend-turned-activist Herschel Walker is calling for CNN to fire Don Lemon after the “CNN Tonight” host laughed when rapper Kanye West was referred to as “the token negro of the Trump administration" during a segment that aired Tuesday night.

The segment -- which has been slammed as "racist" -- began with Lemon asking if President Donald Trump is simply “using Kanye as a prop to win over black voters before the midterms.”

CNN political commentator Bakari Sellers responded with a jab at West.

“Anti-intellectualism simply isn’t cool,” Sellers said. “Kanye West is what happens when Negros don’t read.”

Sellers’ remark prompted laughter from Lemon and fellow panelist Tara Setmayer, who followed up by saying West is “the token negro of the Trump administration.”

Walker, who has openly supported Trump, is also an outspoken advocate for mental health issues – which were also mocked during the segment. Walker took to Twitter to express his disbelief.

“Went to bed appalled over Don Lemon's despicable behavior laughing at Tara Setmayer and Bakari Sellers' awful remarks about Kanye West’s visit with [Trump]! Woke up wondering why CNN doesn’t take all three off the air?” Walker tweeted, adding the hashtag "#Shameful."

Setmayer fired back at Walker: “Bless your heart… You want to silence me because I expressed a different opinion than yours? Because I called out Kanye for what he is? Uninformed! I’m an actual conservative, who’s worked on policy advancing those principles for 20-plus years. I’ll never be a shill for Trump.”

Walker – who has dabbled in mixed martial arts in addition to his iconic football career – isn’t one to back down from a fight and quickly responded.

“No...Tara Setmayer, anyone that is African American with an opinion different than yours, you want to call them out by using the N-word and Don Lemon is laughing? To me that’s bullying and shameful," he tweeted back.

CNN did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Walker was not the only person who took offense to the CNN segment.

“These reprehensible, racist comments on CNN are typical of the Trump-hating left” that exists in the mainstream media, Fox News contributor Deroy Murdock said.

“Black Americans who think for ourselves are mocked and degraded with words we last saw under Jim Crow. If President Trump had no black supporters, they would call his circle 'lily white,'” Murdock said. "Now, one of America's most prominent black entertainers praises and visits the president, and he is trivialized as a 'token' who 'doesn't read.'”

Murdock added that the “only silver lining in this vile cloud is that the supposedly bigoted Trump presidency has delivered the lowest black unemployment in American history.”

Donald Trump Jr. slammed CNN for the segment, calling West a “wildly successful businessman."

He added, “Why is free thought and expression so dangerous and scary to liberals?”

Turning Point USA’s Candace Owens told Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Wednesday the segment was “not only racist, it was absolutely despicable.”

“I cannot believe it would be allowed on any network, least of all having a host that’s laughing as if it’s funny,” Owens said.

Heads are still exploding following superstar entertainer and entrepreneur Kanye West’s epic visit with President Trump at the White House today as the left wails in disbelief that a successful black man would stray outside the gates of the Democrat plantation.

West has been shunned and bullied ever since his unforgivable sin of speaking in positive terms about Trump, a man who has been unfairly demonized and lied about for over three years by a slime machine that immediately declared him to be a racist on day one of his historic presidential campaigns.

The Democratic party platform is now an ill-fitting array of competing identity groups, socialists and conspiracy cranks with the glue holding it together being the hatred of the “white supremacist” in the White House and with his stardom, Kanye is mucking up the scam.

The media has worked hand-in-hand with Democrats and other travelers to discredit Kanye who only weeks ago, was bullied by the cast of the “Saturday Night Live” hatefest for wearing a red MAGA cap and had his mic cut during an improvised segment at the end.

He has been mocked in disgusting racist terms by Don Lemon and guests on CNN where he was trashed as an illiterate “Negro” and the unhinged banshees on ABC’s “The View” are pushing the lie that he is mentally ill but today, he upped the ante and won the news cycle.

There are hysterical reactions erupting across social media but the prize for the most absurd meltdown from former DNC interim boss, ex-CNN employee and longtime Democrat party apparatchik Donna Brazile who is claiming that West’s talk with the president as set people of color back “155” years:

#KanyeWest has set us back 155 years. Wish #SojournerTruth could have met him outside the White House and #FrederickDouglas inside the Oval Office.@BarackObama never would have become President with this crap.

But, let’s meet #Kayne on #ElectionDay by voting for Democrats. https://t.co/nmapsl7pK3

— Donna Brazile (@donnabrazile) October 11, 2018

Via The Hill, “Donna Brazile: ‘Kanye West has set us back 155 years'”:

Former interim Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile tweeted Thursday that Kanye West has “set us back 155 years” in response to his exuberant praise of President Trump while meeting at the White House.

Brazile expressed frustration with West, who has voiced skepticism of the 13th Amendment, which outlawed slavery, as well as told reporters in the Oval Office that “Trump is on his hero’s journey right now.”

It’s now obvious to any who can see through the smokescreen that the Democrat power structure is mortally terrified that Kanye has gone rogue. They are experiencing a great and choking fear that their bread and butter racist condescension to black voters is in peril as never before.

Outside of the media-Democrat propaganda bubble, black Americans have never had it so good with record low unemployment figures and an economy that truly has lifted ALL votes and no matter how desperate that Dems are to keep people of color trapped in despair and pointing fingers in the wrong direction, more than ever before, that most prized of demographics are choosing to #WalkAway.

Race-baiting con artists like Donna Brazile and their ilk would have you believe that less than two years removed from the nation’s election of a two-term black president, that things are as horribly dire as a day when the KKK ran roughshod and lynchings were commonplace.

The good news? Their hysterical meltdown only bolsters the message of courageous individuals like Kanye West who refuses to play by the rules of their sick rigged game.

During the past three weeks, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has received a deluge of news coverage accusing him of vile crimes, including attempted rape and even organizing gang rapes. Though these charges did not originate with the news media, the lack of satisfactory corroborating evidence should have caused ethical reporters to refrain from gratuitously repeating allegations that painted Kavanaugh in a monstrous light.

The media have shown no such restraint. Take CNN as a case in point. MRC analysts reviewed all of the network’s Kavanaugh coverage during an 18-day period from September 16 through October 3 and found CNN’s on-air anchors, reporters and contributors associated Kavanaugh with the word “rape” 191 times, or more than ten times per day. Note that this does not include the many other instances in which the word was used by guests, or by participants at live or replayed news events (such as the hearing on September 27). This count also excluded milder synonyms, such as “sexual assault.”

Nearly 20 years ago, Juanita Broaddrick accused then-President Bill Clinton of raping her while he was the Attorney General of Arkansas — reportedly leaving her with a bloody lip and the words, “You’d better put some ice on that.” In the 18 days which followed Broaddrick’s story appearing in the Wall Street Journal (February 19, 1999), a Nexis search found CNN’s on-air personalities (also excluding guests) only talked about Clinton as an alleged “rapist” 34 times, and then mostly on talk shows like CNN & Company (12 times) and Larry King Live (9 times). That’s less than one-fifth the rate at which CNN today have tarred Brett Kavanaugh with the same devastating label.

The caution with which CNN approached Broaddrick’s claims back then makes their handling of the Kavanaugh controversy appear all the more punishing.

New Day host John Berman was so enthusiastic about repeating Professor Christine Blasey Ford’s accusation that he contradicted his own framing of the claim. On October 2 he argued during the 6 a.m. ET hour of his show: “No one is accusing Professor Kavanaugh of being a rapist — Judge Kavanaugh of being a rapist. An attempted rapist, though yes.”

But a mere two hours later, Berman claimed that any Senator who voted to confirm Kavanaugh would be doing so, “knowing that woman stood before the Senate, accusing this nominee of rape.”

Hour after hour, the likes of Alisyn Camerota (New Day), Anderson Cooper (Anderson Cooper 360), and Don Lemon (CNN Tonight) performed laborious readings of Ford’s opening statement on their shows. These were supplemented with clips of Ford reading the statement herself, as well as a videotape in which CNN International correspondent Sarah Sidner summarized the document.

The following passage in particular was given considerable airtime: “I believed he was going to rape me. I tried to yell for help. When I did, Brett put his hand over my mouth to stop me from screaming.”

Other CNN journalists struggled to summarize the allegations by Julie Swetnick (a client of Michael Avenatti’s) without using suggestive and ambiguous language. On October 1, CNN White House correspondent Kaitlin Collins described Swetnick as “the woman who said that she attended parties where there were gang rapes and excessive drinking and aggressive behavior from Brett Kavanaugh.”

Some talking heads eventually abandoned terms such as “alleged,” and “accused,” in their analysis. For example, CNN chief political analyst Jeffrey Toobin on October 2 offered the following take on The Situation Room: “[Trump’s] hypothesis is, ‘Well, my Supreme Court nominee may be an attempted rapist, but on the bright side, my Deputy Attorney General thinks I’m too insane to be President.’”

Back during the Clinton Presidency, CNN’s reporters and anchors almost always softened the term to “sexual assault,” as when anchor Judy Woodruff set up a segment on the March 1, 1999 edition of Inside Politics: “While the President has been on the road, the sexual assault allegations made against him by Juanita Broaddrick have been fodder for political talk shows...”

That’s still tougher language than when UPI’s Helen Thomas became the first reporter to confront Clinton at a February 24, 1999 press conference, when she avoided any real description of the charge: “What is your reaction to recent allegations by an Arkansas woman, apparently of something she claims happened many years ago?”

Appearing on CNN’s Moneyline later that same day, then-Washington Post media reporter Howard Kurtz gave a nonpartisan explanation of why the media were so reluctant to discuss Broaddrick’s charge:

Because it’s sort of like dropping a nuclear bomb to make this kind of charge against the President. It’s a 21-year-old charge. There are no medical records, no hotel records. There are no police records. And so you want to very carefully assess the credibility of the woman making this charge, and that makes news organizations nervous.

Kurtz was incorrect; in fact, as NBC's Dateline would report later that night, there were hotel records putting Broaddrick in Little Rock the night of their alleged encounter, giving her story more corroboration than Ford's accusations against Kavanaugh. Yet there's been no evidence that CNN has been at all "nervous" about endlessly regurgitating the harshest allegations against the Supreme Court nominee, even if none of them can be independently confirmed.

In May 1987, after a jury found him innocent of all charges brought by New York City prosecutors, former Secretary of Labor Ray Donovan famously asked, “Which office do I go to to get my reputation back?” Whether or not he is seated as a Supreme Court Justice next week, Brett Kavanaugh could justifiably ask the same question of the reporters who have battered his reputation by endlessly repeating damaging, and totally unproved, allegations.

A CNN panel on Don Lemon’s show Tuesday night went after Kanye West ahead of his meeting this week with President Trump, describing him as a poor role model for the black community.

“Kanye West is what happens when negroes don’t read,” CNN commentator Bakari Sellers said, apparently referencing a Chris Rock stand-up routine from the 1990s. Sellers added that West does not have the depth to understand the issues with the Trump presidency.

Another panel member, Tara Setmayer, said West should not be taken seriously and has become the “token negro of the Trump administration.”

“Listen, black folks are about to trade Kanye West in the racial draft,” Setmayer said, adding, “[Kanye’s] an attention whore, like the president.”

West’s wife, reality TV star Kim Kardashian West, met with Trump on prison reform over the summer.

West went on a rant at the of the “Saturday Night Live” premiere late last month regarding Trump and wore a red “Make America Great Again” hat. Kanye claimed he was "bullied" backstage.

“They bullied me backstage. They said, 'Don't go out there with that hat on.’ They bullied me backstage. They bullied me! And then, they say I'm in a sunken place," West said.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders announced Tuesday that West is expected to meet with Trump and his son-in-law White House senior adviser Jared Kushner later in the week.

"Kanye West is coming to the White House to have lunch with President Trump and he will also meet with Jared Kushner," Sanders said. "Topics of discussions will include manufacturing resurgence in America, prison reform, how to prevent gang violence, and what can be done to reduce violence in Chicago."

Michael Moore’s anti-Trump documentary Fahrenheit 11/9 tanked at the box office, according to Deadline.

Although Fahrenheit 11/9 opened this weekend on a massive number of screens, it is projected to earn a paltry $3 million.

After a decade of disappointments for the Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker, even the early projections for what was supposed to be Moore’s comeback film did not look promising — a mere $6 million, but the reality is even worse: half of that.

Outside of the fact he has not had a hit since Sicko grossed a respectable $24.5 million all the way back in 2007, Fahrenheit 11/9’s humiliating opening is especially embarrassing when you consider it opened in an astonishing 1,719 theaters.

The whole idea behind Moore’s anti-Trump doc was to recapture the glory days of his Fahrenheit 9/11, which opened in the summer of 2004 in just 868 theaters to an astonishing $24 million. It would go on to gross $119 million.

Fahrenheit 9/11, a blistering attack on President George W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq, still holds the record for the highest grossing political documentary in history. To give you an idea of how popular it was, second place (Dinesh D’Souza’s Obama’s America) grossed $33.4 million, or about $87 million less Fahrenheit 9/11.

It will be a miracle if Fahrenheit 11/9 reaches $10 million.

This weekend’s failure of Fahrenheit 11/9 (the title comes from the date Trump won the election: November 9, 2016) is a fairly clear-cut sign America is tired of Michael Moore, including those on the left. The 64-year-old has been exposed repeatedly as a dishonest filmmaker, a hypocrite who lives the high life among the 1 percent, and his overall filmmaking approach feels played out.

This failure cannot be blamed on critics, who boosted Fahrenheit 11/9 to an 80 percent fresh rating at Rotten Tomatoes. Moore also enjoyed a ton of free publicity.

To be fair, though, this flop is not all Moore’s fault.

What used to be Moore’s unique approach to left-wing propaganda, is now everywhere — on YouTube, cable news, and all over the pages of the Washington Post and the New York Times.

Over the last decade, as Moore’s documentary style — a style he helped create and almost single-handedly popularize — went mainstream, the aging filmmaker’s approach has remained staid with the same kind of stale stunts now uploaded daily by others on YouTube, and the same kind of hate-inciting propaganda now spewed relentlessly by the establishment media.

Let me put it this way… Back in 2004, and even though I supported Bush and the Iraq War, I was dazzled by Fahrenheit 9/11. If you set aside your personal beliefs and just watch it for what it is, the brilliance, energy, and audacity of Fahrenheit 9/11 cannot be denied. Subsequent viewings have not changed my mind — Fahrenheit 9/11 is a masterpiece. I also enjoyed the wildly dishonest Sicko. Everything Moore has produced since, however, has been garbage. I have not yet seen Fahrenheit 11/9.

Regardless, in Moore’s defense, if you take a look around, everyone today is doing Michael Moore — the lies, the stunts, the audacity — including the establishment media.

After all, it was just a few months ago that CNN’s Jake Tapper hosted a repugnant anti-gun town hall event where a rape victim was booed. And it was just last week when Tapper devoted an entire segment to the presidential penis.

What made Moore unique was how shameless and dishonest he was in pursuit of his left-wing goals, but he was never as shameless or dishonest as Jake Tapper, never as hateful and irresponsible as those who promote violence like Tapper’s colleagues Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo.

In other words…

We go to the movies to see what we cannot see at home; so, what can Moore possibly offer in a world where a Jake Tapper is topping him daily, a world where Moore’s dishonest and shameless leftism runs wild 24/7… and is just a click away?

Last week, more Americans tuned in to watch re-runs of “Yogi Bear,” “Full House,” and “Friends” on Nick At Nite than to watch Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon’s shows on CNN.

According to cable ratings from the week of June 26-July 2, CNN’s viewership of its primetime shows was ranked significantly lower than its competitors like Fox News and MSNBC, which place first and second respectively. Clocking in at No. 10 on the list, CNN fell behind HGTV, Nick At Nite, History Channel, and ESPN — the sports network that’s been hemorrhaging viewers for months.

CNN’s ratings nosedive corresponds with the network’s ongoing feud with President Donald Trump. Last week, Trump tweeted out a GIF of himself appearing to pummel a wrestler with CNN’s logo superimposed over the latter’s face. The network has covered the tweet nearly nonstop ever since. It also went after the Redditor who made the GIF and threatened to dox him unless he apologized and promised to never say anything CNN dislikes again — a move that drew much criticism and may have been illegal.

On July 4, CNN published a fake quote from Abraham Lincoln. On Thursday morning, the network falsely claimed German Prime Minister Angela Merkel had chosen the location of the G20 summit to sabotage Trump.

The Right Scoop

This is ridiculous.

CNN’s top legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin just claimed that Antifa is “widely perceived as an African-American organization”, and the reason he did it was to paint Trump as a racist for criticizing Antifa. I’m totally not kidding.

The backstory is that Trump warned of violence from Antifa in a meeting with evangelicals last night at the White House, according to Free Beacon:

Trump had spoken with evangelical leaders on Monday night and said Republicans’ opponents are “violent,” naming Antifa as one of the groups engaging in political violence. He warned Republican losses could lead to violence from groups like Antifa, whose members have participated in riots in the past…

Here’s what Toobin the Stoopid said:

“Let’s be clear also about what’s going on here, the theme here is ‘I’m Donald Trump and I’ll protect you from the scary black people,’” Toobin said. “Antifa is widely perceived as an African-American organization and this is just part of the same story of LeBron James and Don Lemon and Maxine Waters and the NFL players and the UCLA basketball players.”

“This is about black versus white,” Toobin said. “This is about Donald Trump’s appeal to racism, and it just happens all the time and we never say it, we don’t say it enough for what it is but that’s what’s going on here.”

Since when is Antifa a black organization? Most of the videos that I’ve seen show white kids. Free Beacon agrees:

Antifa has claimed the mantle of resisting white supremacy and members wear black clothes and masks, but it is questionable whether it is “widely perceived as an African-American organization.” It’s a loose coalition of left-wing protesters without public membership, and media reports and imagestend to show its members are primarily young and white.

Exactly. But this is just how much some of these ‘analysts’ hate Trump. They are willing to lie just to continue the narrative that Trump is racist. And he even says CNN doesn’t focus enough on Trump being racist. It’s despicable, and that is exactly what Toobin has become.

Also, this isn’t the first time he’s played the “Trump is racist” card.

CNN anchor Don Lemon once again threw off all pretense of journalistic integrity during an appearance on "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert," in which the two public figures discussed the issues surrounding the border.

The two left-wing media personalities agreed that the immigration debate has a "racial component," which prompted Lemon to present what he believes is truly driving the immigration debate: white people's fear of "losing their privilege."

As reported by Newsbusters, Colbert and Lemon had no problem blaming the situation on those ignorant white citizens living in border states.

Colbert opined, "One of the things that’s sort of a recurring, distressing data point and theme with this administration is using race as a tool to divide people."

He added, "What’s happening on the southern border certainly has a racial component to it."

Lemon wasted no time in praising Colbert’s perspective on the matter.

"You have hit on probably the most important story of our time, especially when it comes to this administration," he said. "It has everything to do with race."

The "Facts First" anchor continued: "We were told people would have you to believe that this was about economic anxiety. Every single study and survey shows that this was about people who are losing power and influence, it was about race, people were concerned about not having the same level of influences they had and they were concerned about it."

Colbert jumped in, "Losing their privilege!"

Lemon agreed, "Losing their privilege. And that's what this is about."

It is not about people worried about economic impact of having illegal immigrants flooding into their country en mass, but everything to do with racism, according to Lemon and Colbert. Neither one of them cited facts to back-up their opinions.

This is not the first time Don Lemon has thrown off journalistic principles to advance an agenda. In August 2017, during a debate with Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro on CNN, he admitted as much.

Shapiro said during the exchange, "I totally understand your point of view. The point is that you have a point of view, right?"

Lemon answered, "Listen, we shouldn't pretend that there’s this fake objectivity; everyone has a point of view. That doesn’t mean that you’re biased."

Shapiro later pointed out, "You just said, openly, that you don’t think your point of view is biased. Your point of view clearly is biased."

Thursday on “Democracy Now,” Rep. Al Green (D-TX) said President Donald Trump could be impeached without having committed a crime.

Green said, “This is a very sad time in the history of our country. This is not something that I enjoy talking about, nor is it something that I would like to do. But I think it’s becoming increasingly clear that the president will have two options: One, he can resign from office, or, two, he can face impeachment. Impeachment is something that the Framers of the Constitution provided for a time such as this and a president such as Trump. The president does not have to commit a crime to be impeached. In fact, the president is not likely to be indicted, which means he’s not likely to be found guilty of a crime while he’s sitting, which means that if this comes before the House, it won’t come before the House as a president who has been found guilty, but rather as a president who is alleged to have committed certain offenses that are onerous to the Constitution and that harm society. And what this president is doing is harming society.” – READ MORE

I had to get the video segment in its entirety to see Don Lemon’s reaction and guess what, he didn’t respond to CNN commentator Phil Mudd using the n-word (twice).

On Saturday, I gave my opinion about Mudd cursing at a Trump supporter during his Friday night CNN interview and the network didn’t say anything about it. After doing some research about Mudd, I found that he had a storied history with CNN and I want to know why they keep having him back on.

Mudd’s attempt to use the n-word twice with Lemon on his nightly show rolled off his tongue with disconcerting ease and if you listen, including a southern twang.

Source: Video transcript

“I have seen these conversations that this is economic. So let’s be clear: a white honky from Norway can come here but a black dude from Haiti can’t. What does that tell you in an America that in one generation called you a nigger? What does that tell you, Don?” Mudd asked.

“I can tell you what it tells a honky like me,” Mudd said. “We’re no different than we were a generation ago and we’re learning the same lessons that we learned when we called a Chinese man a slanteye, when we called a man from Guatemala a spic and a wetback, and we called a black man a nigger. That’s what it tells me. We’ve got a ways to learn. But we can step back and say we’re proud because I spoke this on CNN, 30-to-1 the emails I got were saying, ‘You speak for us and we are not from Africa and we are not from Norway. We’re from Italy. We’re from Ireland. We’re from Greece.’ Every single one of them was from a place they would say, ‘Hey, hashtag, I’m one of them.'”

We also didn’t have a welfare state and a Democratic machine looking to create a monolithic voting bloc of those who live on the dole.

It seems that CNN is ok with their guest using the n-word without hesitation. This is why the failing network isn’t worth a piece of crap. They want to go after Pres. Trump for allegations and no proof but they have someone on their network using this word like it’s a regular part of his vocabulary.

Conservative commentator Candace Owens called out CNN for using NBA star LeBron James to attack President Trump when he was promoting his taxpayer-funded “I Promise” school in Akron, Ohio.

Conservative commentator Candace Owens called out CNN for using NBA star LeBron James to attack President Trump when he was promoting his taxpayer-funded “I Promise” school in Akron, Ohio.

From Biz Pac Review:

“I don’t want to take away from what he did — opening the school was an incredible feat — but Don Lemon got him in that interview,” Owens said on Tucker Carlson Tonight. “He wanted LeBron to say something [bad] about the president…They were there to get that five-second soundbite to say something nasty about the president, and that was going to be their news story.”

Owens said James is brilliant on the basketball court, but CNN used him as a puppet to promote its anti-Trump agenda. LeBron wasn’t there to talk about President Trump, but to tout the taxpayer-funded school he helped open to benefit underprivileged children in his home state of Ohio.

Owens said that by allowing himself to be used that was ignorant.

“I would welcome a dialogue with LeBron James,” she said. “But he is, in this regard, an ignorant man. I’m not going to refer to him as uneducated, but I am going to refer to him as ignorant. He knows very little about politics.” Owens explained:

The reason why CNN wanted to get LeBron James…they essentially attacked him without him knowing it and they used him, because what was also released at the same time? The Rasmussen poll [which showed that] black support for Donald Trump has doubled since this time last year.

So black people aren’t believing this [anti-Trump narrative] anymore. So what do [the liberal media] do? They go back to what they always do: They bring in a black idol, and they have the black idol say to the community, ‘Oh this is racist,’ and hope that we’re going to believe it. But we aren’t anymore.”

Lemon goaded James to the topic by saying “He’s kinda used sports to divide us.”

But James has gone after Trump in the past, for example, calling him a “bum” because of his stance against the NFL players kneeling for the national anthem.

Owens said it was ridiculous to say that calling someone ‘dumb’ was racist.

Indeed, it’s those on the left, who make the equation that saying someone is dumb is racist, who are actually being racist.

Candace called Lemon’s statements ridiculous. “The left has been operating under a very bizarre assumption that you can’t critique a black person in this country [because] it makes you automatically racist, is ridiculous and false,” she said.

Owens said she’s been called all kinds of racial slurs because she’s a conservative. “Maxine Waters is not a smart person. You can’t say that because she’s black? That’s ridiculous!”

I Love My Freedom

Published  6 months ago

CNN anchor Don Lemon launched into an angry diatribe toward the end of his show on Monday night, where he disgustingly referred to President Donald Trump’s supporters as “people who will lie, steal, cheat, and lie to their mother.”

As noted by Newsbusters, Lemon’s chilling comments came as his show, “CNN Tonight,” was beginning and Chris Cuomo was wrapping up his program.

Lemon’s tirade came in response to Trump firing off a brutal tweet on Friday that questioned the CNN hosts intelligence after he sat down for an interview with NBA superstar LeBron James.

After Cuomo read a quote from Vice President Mike Pence’s “Moral Case for Removing the President,” which he wrote in the 1990s about former President Bill Clinton being removed from office for having an affair with intern Monica Lewsinsky in the White House.

After that, Lemon went on to smear Trump supporters:

“That was then, this is now. We’re up against tribalism. We’re up against people who will lie, steal, and cheat, lie to their mother, lie to themselves about what’s right of this country, about truth and facts.”

“If they will ignore any misgiving, any terrible misdeed, any awful saying they will just ignore it for their own political purpose. They will ignore the bigotry and the pettiness and the childishness about what Donald Trump said about me and LeBron James and others just because they want to gain some sort of political clout or they want a few more dollars in tax money. At what cost?”

Watch below:

Oddly enough, Lemon closed out his disgusting remarks by telling Trump that he shouldn’t speak if he can’t say anything nice. As most would agree, CNN and Lemon should take their own advice before trying to lecture Americans and the president of the United States on kindness.

According to a recent study from the Media Research Center study, 90 percent of cable news coverage of Trump is negative.

Lemon noted the study in his rant, justifying the mainstream media’s endless verbal assault on Trump and his administration because the CNN host believes the president deserves it.

“It always gets me when people say, ‘There’s 90 percent. This study shows that 90 percent of the reports about this president are negative.’ But they don’t talk about the things that come out of his mouth and the policies he proposes. And what he does and says to people.”

“How are we as media to report positively on something that’s negative. If that is indeed true, then you need to counterbalance that and weight it against what comes out of this President’s mouth and what he’s doing.” Clearly, Lemon didn’t do his homework or else he would know exactly how we conduct our studies.”

So, Lemon claimed Trump shouldn’t open his mouth unless he has something nice to say. Then, he justified his own network and other mainstream media outlets covering the president negatively 90 percent of the time because he claims Trump deserves it.

And, to make his point, Lemon disgustingly referred to Trump’s supporters as “people who will lie, steal, cheat, and lie to their mother.”

This is CNN — which is why they are one of the lowest rated cable news networks.

CNN host Don Lemon found himself in hot-water Wednesday after his unhinged rant Monday night; bizarrely claiming that “white men” pose the biggest “terror threat” to the United States yet there is no “white guy ban.”

“I keep trying to point out to people not to demonize any one group or any one ethnicity, but we keep thinking that the biggest terror threat is something else,” Lemon said. “Some people who are marching towards the border like it’s imminent. And the last time they did this, a couple of hundred people came and they, you know, most of them didn’t get into the country. Most of them got tuckered out before they even made it to the border.”

LeBron James marked the opening of his I Promise School last week with a display of his Social Justice Warrior side, lamenting on CNN that “we are going back to places of — some kind of slavery or Jim Crow and things of that nature.”

News of the basketball megastar’s school opening in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, is certainly heartwarming. The school has an onsite food bank; provides bicycles to every student “to escape dangerous parts of town and explore,” according to its mission statement; and provides job placement assistance for parents. And it’s quite clear to me that this wasn’t solely a financial investment (I’d rather he get his tax write-off for this then send his money to the state or the feds).

But his SJW comments in his promotion of the school are a rehash of the usual hackneyed Democrat talking points, and miss an important point about the context of his school. In addition to telling CNN’s Don Lemon the country is headed for “some kind of slavery,” James called President Trump a “bum” and jokingly said he would consider running against him in 2020.

James is a high-profile political Jekyll and Hyde; he has done a lot for his community, but when he talks politics, I remind myself why 2016 was such a crucial win for we America First voters. When he emotionally outlined his reasons at the school’s opening ceremonies for wanting to assist the 240 at-risk and low income students, I never doubted his sincerity; James himself is not a man who comes from an affluent family. But he’s missing the bigger picture here.

Unsurprisingly absent in the coverage I read and watched about the school was any discussion whatsoever about why some children in Akron, with a population of 200,000, are at-risk and low-income to begin with. What has happened, and is happening, in Akron that motivated James to spend a reported $8 million for a safe space school?

Well, here’s what I discovered about Akron: it’s run by xenophobic, anti-immigrant, lifelong National Rifle Association members who want to Make America Segregated Again. Just kidding: Akron, like most of America’s midsize and large cities with at-risk kids, is run by Democrats.

The Tale of the Tape

Akron has had only Democrat mayors for the last 13,000 consecutive days. The last time Akron had a Republican mayor, Brian Sipe was the Cleveland Browns’ quarterback; if you know who Brian Sipe is, my compliments.

The current city council has 14 members, including a clerk; every member is a Democrat. It’s not unusual for Democrat cities to have city councils with 80 percent or more Democrats throughout their modern histories; in Akron, I was unable to verify the political parties of members over the last 13,000 consecutive days, although I reckon they weren’t GOP xenophobic anti-immigrant, lifelong NRA members who want to Make America Segregated Again.

Of the 47,000 families residing in the city, according to the most recent U.S. Census numbers, 26 percent are single-parent households; 20 percent of the families were mother-only.

Of all birth ages of mothers, 8 percent are aged 15-19, and 27 percent are aged 20-24.

Akron has certainly seen some good times; the city was the rubber manufacturing capital of the world during most of the 20th Century, when Goodrich Corporation, Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company and Firestone Tire and Rubber Company were all headquartered in the city. By 2000, global free trade deals (a bipartisan scourge on our economy) sent the jobs overseas. The city rebounded somewhat, thanks to the University of Akron’s innovation in Internet technology development, but Akron never fully recovered from the manufacturing job losses.

Akron’s eight public high schools are on track this year to graduate 54 percent of their seniors, down from 74 percent last year. An online search of the district’s Board of Education members didn’t reveal much about their politics, although two of the seven’s board members — Morgan Lasher and Patrick Bravo — have been involved with the Democratic Party on national and local levels. I found nothing about the political activities of Superintendent David James, who’s total compensation and benefits is $244,000 annually.

So what we have in Akron is: thousands of single-parent families, particularly fatherless homes; by today’s standards, young mothers; the usual public education challenge of low graduation rates found in school districts in Democrat cities; and dangerous crime areas.

LeBron’s Missed Opportunity

Calling out those who significantly contributed to the ills that have befallen the I Promise pupils would have been social activism I would have loudly applauded — James missed a wide-open layup. I suspect, however, that he has zero idea that Democrats have been running Akron for longer than he’s been alive. It’s too bad he is apparently so ignorant about one of the places he calls home.

Imagine if celebrities, athletes and entertainers used their massively influential media platforms to shed a white hot light on the utter, abject failures of Democrat-run cities — failures that most adversely affect the youth, who suffer from failing schools, rampant crime and lacking economic mobility and opportunity. James believes this to be true about Akron, whether he knows it or not; otherwise, he wouldn’t have opened his school.

Democrats tend to destroy whatever they touch, and there is no better example of this than the cities they’ve monopolized for generations upon generations. The ruination of many parts of these Democrat cities is one of the most egregious cover-ups, I believe, in American history.

If LeBron James leveraged his status and popularity to attack the true opposition (Democrats), rather than fake outrage opposition (Trump), he’d have my unanimous vote for MVC: Most Valuable Celebrity.

The Right Scoop

Published  6 months ago

“It’s always with an African-American when he questions intelligence,” said Chuck Todd on Meet the Press today. “That’s what makes a lot of people uncomfortable with what he’s doing.”

Todd was talking to Republican Roy Blunt about how racist republicans are all the time, and his evidence was that Trump said CNN’s Don Lemon and NBA star Lebron James are dumb, as well as referring to Rep. Maxine Waters as “low I.Q.” Todd said that “it’s always with an African-American” when Trump questions intellect.

To repeat again, Todd says that “it’s always with an African-American.”

Unfortunately for Chuck, the New York Times preemptively and inadvertently fact-checked him on this some time ago. Verdict: FALSE.

You see, as Newsbusters pointed out today, the Times has created a huge list of insults Trump has tweeted. It was published in January of 2016 and has been constantly updated since then.

It’s weirdly comprehensive, and in the list of hundreds of insults, he calls into question the intelligence of a lot of people. Men, women, white, black… Trump bashes them all.

He called Hillary Clinton “very stupid”, “very dumb”, “totally confused”, and questioned her “brainpower” and “judgment’ over and over, for example.

About James Comey, he said “he is not smart”, called him “stupid”, and “very dumb”. Jeb Bush is “stupid”, “clueless”, and “not competent” according to Trump. Of Bloomberg’s Tim O’Brien, a “dumb guy with no clue”, a “really stupid talking head” and “dopey.” White men all, by the way.

Here are some more from Newsbusters:

The President had called Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski “dumb as a rock” and “crazy and very dumb”. He had also labeled Katy Tur, who fills in for Todd on Mondays’ MTP Daily, as “incompetent”. And his attacks on the intelligence of individual journalists and news outlets were numerous.

The president had even leveled insults of intelligence against a series of white U.S. Senators. He suggested Tennessee Republican Bob Corker was “incompetent” and “doesn’t have a clue”. “Dumb mouthpiece”, was what he had to say about South Carolina Republican Linsey Graham. He also slammed Governor Mitt Romney, who’s now running to be a Senator from Utah, “one of the dumbest and worst candidates in the history of Republican politics”.

He also called Brzezinski “low I.Q.” for the record.

NBC’s Chuck Todd is echoing something that you see people say on Twitter and MSNBC (same thing) every single day. They say that the only time Trump brings up how smart someone is, it’s when he’s talking about someone who is black. But that is just not the case.

You might say that’s “Fake news”.

Cleveland Cavaliers basketball star now political commentator LeBron James has been blasting President Donald Trump a lot lately. But in a blistering response on Friday night, President Donald Trump blasted James over his attacks.

From Biz Pac Review:

“Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!” the president wrote, referring to NBA legend Michael Jordan, who’s made it a mission to keep his nose out of politics.

In an interview with Don Lemon on Monday, James had accused Trump of using sports to be divisive.

“What I’ve noticed over the past few months is he’s kinda used sports to kinda divide us, and that’s something that I can’t relate to,” James said, going on to describe how it was via sports that he got to “learn” about white people.

James has blasted Trump multiple times for the president’s willingness to criticize the NFL kneeling protests. He’s called Trump a bum and said he wouldn’t stay in a Trump hotel among other insults.

James’ argument was that calling out players who disrespect the national anthem and thus America is divisive. The president and his supporters feel differently. To them, NFL multimillionaires going around and essentially saying “America sucks” is what’s divisive.

This cartoon by A.F. Branco conveys that very point:

As Tucson police officer Brandon Tatum noted in a viral video last year, if the actual purpose of the protests is to protest police brutality what does that have to do with the flag?

“It’s not about the act of protesting, of believing in something and pursuing,” Tatum said. “It’s the way you’re doing it. Listen, what does the American flag have to do with your perceived oppression? What does the national anthem have to do with these issues that people are bringing up? It’s a separate issue. The flag and the anthem have nothing to do with what you are talking about!”

CNN anchor Don Lemon fired back at President Trump on Saturday after Trump attacked Lemon and NBA star LeBron James, who was interviewed on Lemon's show earlier in the week.

Lemon pointed out James's recent decision to open a school in Ohio for at-risk 3rd and 4th graders as evidence that James was no "dummy" in a tweet after Trump wrote Friday that Lemon had managed to make James look intelligent, which he said wasn't "easy to do."

"Who’s the real dummy? A man who puts kids in classrooms or one who puts kids in cages? #BeBest," Lemon tweeted, mockingly including the hashtag used by first lady Melania Trump on her anti-bullying campaign.

Trump insulted James over Twitter and appeared to reference former NBA star Michael Jordan in a tweet late Friday night after James appeared on Lemon's show earlier in the week and denounced what he said was the president's use of sports to divide the country.

“Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do,” Trump tweeted.

"I like Mike," he added.

In the same interview, James appeared to indicate that he was open to the possibility of running for president, a question that has provoked the president to attack other sports stars, actors, and political figures in the past.

"If someone tried to recruit a James to run for president, they said, 'Listen, they've got no one, if you don't run, Trump's going to win,' would you run?" Lemon asked.

"Well, in that case, I may," James said. “If they have no one? I believe there’s some people out there. I hope. Let’s see, first.”

CNN anchors have frequently criticized the the president and his administration over Trump's labling of the news network and its journalists as "fake news." Lemon himself has been a particular target of Trump in the past, and has called him the "dumbest man on television."

It didn’t take long for liberals to play the race card after President Trump dared to criticize LeBron James and CNN’s Don Lemon who interviewed the NBA superstar last week when he accused Trump of using sports to divide America.

On Friday, Trump dropped a Twiter anvil on the Los Angeles Laker loudmouth’s head and then for good measure, took a poke at the race-obsessed Lemon who he mocked as the “dumbest man on television” which is hard to argue with.

Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!

He also poked James in the eye by bringing up Michael Jordan who has six rings and always carried himself with class, unlike the crude, inarticulate boob who fancies himself as a civil rights figure.

The walking corpse of what used to be CBS’s celebrity anchorman was one of the first to attack Trump as 86-year-old Dan Rather took to his own Twitter account to accuse the president of being a racist which in leftist lexicon happens to be anyone who criticizes a black politician or celebrity for making moronic statements.

We saw this tactic utilized with great success against conservatives who disagreed with Barack Obama’s failed policies and if anything, it has become overused to the point of being a joke but it’s still the bread and butter of the political left.

This is apparently what the President of the United States feels the need to share with the world at what should be long past his bedtime? It's a disgrace. It's racist. And it's the product of petty but dangerous hatreds. I repeat this is the PRESIDENT??!? https://t.co/MA8nZUxFc7

— Dan Rather (@DanRather) August 4, 2018

Via The Hill, “Dan Rather blasts Trump for ‘racist’ criticism of LeBron James, Don Lemon”:

Veteran journalist Dan Rather tore into President Trump for his late-night tweet attacking NBA star LeBron James and CNN host Don Lemon.

In a tweet sent shortly after the president’s, the longtime CBS News anchor called Trump’s comments “racist” and “dangerous.”

“This is apparently what the President of the United States feels the need to share with the world at what should be long past his bedtime?” Rather tweeted. “It’s a disgrace. It’s racist. And it’s the product of petty but dangerous hatreds. I repeat this is the PRESIDENT??!?”

According to Democrats like Mr. Rather, President Trump does not have a right to free speech which is exactly what he was expressing when he called out King James and dumb Don Lemon.

It’s hard to imagine that at one time that this guy was seriously referred to as a respectable newsman. Rather’s long career went up in flames after his sloppy reporting on documents critical of former President George W. Bush’s Air National Guard service embarrassed his network back in 2004.

He was clearly abusing his position in the media to discredit Bush and swing the presidential election to Democrat John Kerry but a failure to do his due diligence led to CBS having to retract Rather’s big scoop much to the dismay of his liberal allies.

Bush went on to win reelection and the disgraced Rather was soon out at CBS before retreating into exile to lick his wounds. However, his name is still solid gold to the left and other low-information suckers and he has since emerged as a floater who appears regularly on the anti-Trump hatefests that pass for cable news.

It was only a week ago when he appeared with Lemon to accuse Trump of using “Orwellian” language which is an appropriate term for those invoking race to stymie criticism of James. Just like Dan Rather just did with his tweet.

It’s hard to tell which one is more pathetic, Rather or Watergate ghoul Carl Bernstein, another crazy old fool who has discovered the fountain of youth in Trump Derangement Syndrome.

On Thursday night, CNN host Don Lemon spoke with reporter April Ryan over President Trump’s treatment of the press and things went off the rails right away. After attacking Trump supporters for heckling Fake News Correspondent Jim Acosta, Lemon and Ryan lamented the fact that White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders has a Secret Service detail.

First, they began by bizarrely claiming that reporters “lives are in jeopardy” when they step into Trump rallies. Then, they turned their focus to Sarah Sanders and complained that she has security protecting her. I guess they just wish Sanders was a sitting duck for liberals to attack whenever they want.

“Jim Acosta’s life was in jeopardy that night. There was a safety issue. She [Sanders] gets run out of a hen house a couple weeks ago and she gets secret service detail,” Ryan said.

“We dont have secret service detail”, Lemon responded, implying that reporters now need Secret Service protection.

“That’s what im saying,” Ryan continued.

“This President. Donald J Trump has stoked the flames for reporters to feel like they’re in jeopardy. Their lives are in jeopardy at these rallies. And she [Sanders] gets taxpayer funded security for something she stokes,” Ryan added.

Lemon then chimed in with his own thoughts about reporters needing Secret Service detail; “They need it, and many journalists need it now because of what this president and this administration has done.”

“I’m raising my hand. I’m one of those,” Ryan responded, implying that her life is also in danger at Trump rallies.

CNN political analyst April Ryan believes CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s life was in danger at President Donald Trump’s Tuesday rally in Tampa, Florida.

Acosta, who was heckled with “CNN sucks!” chants before Trump appeared on stage, has said he did not feel like he was in America and expressed that he is “very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt.”

“That’s a serious moment and a serious place. And Jim Acosta’s life, in my opinion, was in jeopardy that night,” Ryan told CNN host Don Lemon on Wednesday evening. “There was a safety issue.”

Others at CNN, like media reporter Brian Stelter, have accused Trump of leading a “hate movement” against the mainstream press. And CNN’s David Gergen even said that blood will be on Trump’s hands if there is violence committed against mainstream media journalists.

Ryan also said reporters like herself need security like the secret service detail White House Spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders received after a left-wing Virginia restaurant owner kicked her out of his establishment. The restaurant owner than promptly followed the White House press security to her next destination and harassed and organized protests against her family.

Ryan, though, said Trump “has stoked the flames for reporters to feel like they are in jeopardy.”

“Their lives, their safety is in jeopardy. Their lives are in jeopardy at these rallies,” Ryan insisted. “And something has got to stop.”

When Lemon said “many journalists” need security now because of Trump’s rhetoric, Ryan replied: “I am raising my hand. I am one of those.”

Lebron James needs to shut up and dribble. He makes Democrats look stupid when he talks about politics.

Don’t you find it strange how these sports figures find it easy to protest the National Anthem but haven’t spent one minute serving the country? Politics and sports shouldn’t mix, and that’s why I have so much respect for Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott.

This country has been divided since “integration ” LeBron and the rest need to chill their far removed from normal society. Ask him how much racism did he see prior to becoming rich?

Democrats need to stop blaming Pres. Trump for racism in America. Progressive voters are acting as if it didn’t exist before he was elected. For eight years, racism marinated and spread over the nation under Barack Obama. Actually, I can even go back to George W. Bush’s time in office when even Kanye West publicly told America how the President didn’t care about black people.

On Monday, the three-time NBA champion opened his I Promise School in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, before then discussing sports and politics in a wide-ranging interview with CNN anchor Don Lemon.

“We are in a position right now in America […] where this race thing has taken over,” James said.

“Because I believe our president is kind of trying to divide us. What I’ve noticed over the past few months [is] he’s kinda used sports to kinda divide us, and that’s something that I can’t relate to.”

Democrats have been playing this age-old game where they push the narrative that white Presidents did not care about black people, and now the media expands that with their fake news documentaries. Remember now; there were police shootings during Barack Obama’s time in office.

Things went from average Americans of all walks celebrating a man winning the presidency that we thought we wouldn’t see in our lifetime, to being torn apart by the agendas of the mainstream media that would jump into his corner and by some of the non-thought out remarks regarding specific events of note.

Divide and conquer has always been the game plan of Democrats and the fruits are continuing to bloom under Trump, but he isn’t planting the trees or the shrubs that grew them.

Had Hillary won, the only difference would be that the division promotion would be a lot more precisely carried out due to her long-term participation in the planned formula.

No LeBron, Pres. Trump is not dividing us through sports. Look within yourself and finally tell the truth or you will never be able to live it down.

CNN host Don Lemon suggested on his program Monday night that television networks should delay President Donald Trump’s upcoming address on border security when they air it.

“Listen, I’m not saying that we shouldn’t do it, but do you think it should be, I don’t know, a delay of some sort, and then you can…because people believe it. People–the president will say what he has to say,” Don Lemon lamented. “People will believe it whether the facts are true or not. I guess that’s the chance you take with any president.”

“But this one is different,” Lemon continued. “Then by the time the rebuttals come on, we’ve already promoted propaganda, possibly, unless he gets up there and he tells the truth.”

“He has his right to make the argument to the American people. And by the way, wanting barriers along the border is not propaganda,” Chris Cuomo replied.

“No, no, no,” Lemon said.

“It’s not immoral. It’s not wrong,” Cuomo continued.

Lemon responded, “The facts about that, though, who wants it, who doesn’t, how much it actually does protect, like you said, it’s not a panacea. It’s not a cure-all, there are other aspects, other technologies that go along with that.”

CNN’s Brian Stelter has also promoted this idea before.

President Trump will address the nation from the Oval Office for the first time Tuesday to discuss border security and the ongoing government shutdown over Democrats’ refusal to fund border security.

“I am pleased to inform you that I will Address the Nation on the Humanitarian and National Security crisis on our Southern Border. Tuesday night at 9:00 P.M. Eastern,” Trump said in a tweet announcing the address Monday.

An outrageous discussion unfolded on CNN recently focused on how most white women who voted for President Donald Trump must be “racist.”

Only one of the all-female panel hosted by CNN’s Don Lemon pushed back in the discussion on why the president resonates with most white women, delivering a blistering take-down of the argument that white women who have a “deep investment in white supremacy” voted for Trump.

Lemon began by asking liberal contributor Kirsten Powers “why white women support Donald Trump in spite of or perhaps because of his policies and his tone,” during Friday’s “CNN Tonight.”

“People will say that they support him for reasons other than his racist language,” Powers responded. “And they’ll say, ‘Well, I’m not racist. I just voted for him because I didn’t like Hillary Clinton.'”

She then seemed to attempt to “establish” that anyone who voted for Trump is racist.

“And I just want to say that’s not — that doesn’t make you not racist. It actually makes you racist. If you support somebody who does racist things, that makes you racist. So I just want to establish that.”

But Powers was not done.

“I think we have to recognize that white men are doing it as well, but sometimes I think that we would hope that we would get better behavior from white women because white women are themselves are oppressed and that they would be able to align themselves with other oppressed people,” she said.

“I think we have to remember that the white patriarchal system actually benefits white women in a lot of ways, and they are attached to white men who are benefiting from the system that was created by them, for them. And their fathers and their husbands and their brothers are benefiting from the system, and so they are also benefiting,” she declared.

UC Berkeley Professor Stephanie Jones-Rogers echoed the views, suggesting that women have a “deep investment” in white supremacy.

“You’re quoted in this Vox article as saying that, for centuries, white women have ‘invested in white supremacy because their whiteness affords them a particular kind of power that their gender does not.’ What did you mean by that?” Lemon asked.

“We tend to think of white women primarily focusing on gender oppression — that because they are oppressed as women, that that oppression will allow them to ally and to sympathize with other dispossessed and other disempowered peoples in the nation,” Jones-Rogers replied.

“But my research actually shows that they long had deep investment in white supremacy, and not only did they benefit from it, but they participated in its construction and its perpetuation — not just in the context of slavery, not just in the colonial period, but well after slavery was over,” she added.

CNN political commentator Alice Stewart was the lone dissenter in the one-sided bashing of white women, bringing a strong rebuttal to the outlandish argument.

“Voters, women and men, identify themselves as either Republican, Democrat, Independent or whatever their political party,” she said.

“I strongly disagree with the characterization that women are oppressed and by nature of that oppression they should naturally vote for another group of people that are oppressed,” she added, noting people should vote based on who is representing policies they agree with.

“I’m a Republican. I support this president, I voted for this president. I did so because of his policies – I do not agree with his tone and tenor,” Stewart argued. “But his policies are what I stand for.”

When Lemon pressed that Trump’s tone and denigrating speech are “part of his policy,” Stewart shut him down.

“No, they’re not Don. They’re separate,” she said as Powers could be seen clearly shaking her head.

“Let me just say this, Kirsten is a dear friend of mine, but I resent that she says I’m racist because Donald Trump says racist things,” Stewart said, adding that the president’s “disparaging” comments “don’t represent me.”
