Anti-Gun Parkland Activist Spews Lies, Insults NRA While CNN Does Nothing

This just further serves to expose the obvious liberal bias of CNN as a news organization

Published

Radical left-wing anti-gun activist Cameron Kasky appeared on CNN’s “New Day” program over the weekend where he took a few moments to spew forth some inaccurate information peppered with a few nasty insults for NRA members and President Trump.

Kaskey’s segment was primarily focused on getting the activist’s take on the president’s speech at the NRA convention in Dallas.

As has become standard practice for CNN, they allowed Kasky to make several false statements without even bothering to fact check what was being stated or to offer any sort of challenge or push back to his claims.

This just further serves to expose the obvious liberal bias of CNN as a news organization and validates President Trump’s and the vast majority of American citizens’ distrust of the network.

“If you could sit down with the president this morning, what would you say to him?” co-host Paul asked Kasky.

“I don’t necessarily know,” Cameron Kasky “You see, he’s a professional liar who will say anything to appease whatever crowd he’s at.”

Kasky continued by comparing NRA members to people who participate in Comic-Con, a clear insult given the context of Kasky’s statement. Kasky also claimed, without evidence, that the NRA gives out free memberships to people “with the purchase of a handgun.”

“But the average members of the NRA, they don’t agree with Trump’s stance on guns,” Kasky misleadingly said. “This is all Trump just trying to appeal to a crowd of people who really, really, really like weapons that shoot bullets fast.”

When asked for his thoughts on Trump’s comment about banning trucks and vans due to vehicle attacks, Kasky called it “childish garbage.”

Kasky has a well earned reputation for spreading misinformation, and that’s precisely what he did here on several points, yet he went completely unchallenged, allowing this faulty information to hit the masses.

First off, his claim that the majority of NRA members disagree with Trump on guns is completely false. The whole point of Kasky’s statement here was to make Trump look like some sort of extremist.

However, not long after the Parkland shooting, the president made several suggestions concerning gun control that actually frightened some Second Amendment activists, particularly his comment about confiscating guns without due process, which is a violation of the Constitution.

Trump is not an extremist on guns. Much of Kasky’s argument here is likely coming from the fact that two-thirds of NRA members support background checks for purchasing guns, which Trump also supports.

However, more than half of NRA members have made it clear they do not support a universal gun registry, which would be necessary for universal background checks.

Kasky went on to mention that his dad owns a few guns, but not the kind that can “mow down 17 people in six minutes,” once again perpetuating the myth that AR-15s are automatic weapons.

Automatic weapons are machine guns. These weapons have been banned for a long, long time in the United States. The AR-15 is a semi-automatic, just like the kind of handguns Kasky’s pop owns, which makes them just as deadly as an “assault rifle.”

What’s really aggravating here is that CNN didn’t bother to do their job to uphold journalistic integrity and actually check to see if what Kasky said was accurate or true. His statements fit their narrative, so they just allowed it to go forward, regardless of accuracy.

Perhaps one day journalists will make a return to objectivity and take their job to inform the public of facts seriously.

Ilhan Omar’s Housing Plan Costs $1 Trillion; Includes Provisions For Undocumented Immigrants

Published

on

Controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar announced her affordable housing program, which will cost $1 trillion, revealing that it includes provisions for illegal immigrants. Omar revealed the “Homes for All Act” on Thursday, which would go hand-in-hand with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal by creating 12 million housing units by ensuring they were all built to the highest environmental standards. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: In her announcement, Omar, 38, explained that her affordable housing plan would ensure that no one is denied access to public housing, no matter their gender identity, race, sexuality, or immigration status. https://twitter.com/Ilhan/status/1197515008982310912 “We will prohibit any discrimination against residents based on sexual orientation, gender, criminal history or immigration status,” Omar explained, later adding, “Doing the Homes for All really gets us closer to having the America I imagined be realized and I’m really excited for the opportunity to now be in a position of influence to get that done.” This would break from the Trump administration’s affordable housing policies. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson announced in May that undocumented families would be denied taxpayer-funded housing in order to make room for citizens in need of public housing. Omar, who first arrived in America at the age of 12 as a refugee, has noted that the sight of folks living on the streets had a profound impact when she came to this country. Ever since, she has vowed to fight for making housing a human right. https://twitter.com/IlhanMN/status/1197530827741110272 Omar did not provide any information on how the program would be funded.

DNA Test Results Reveal Hunter Biden Is Father Of Arkansas Woman’s Child

Published

on

DNA tests results have “established with scientific certainty” that Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President Joe Biden, is the father of an Arkansas woman’s baby. The woman filed a motion on Wednesday concerning the DNA results. The filing says Biden is “not expected to challenge the results of the DNA test or the testing process.” Here’s more from CNN: Hunter Biden had denied in a previous court filing that he had fathered the child, but agreed in October to a paternity test. Neither Joe Biden’s campaign nor an attorney for Hunter Biden immediately responded to requests for comment. It’s the latest development to thrust the former vice president’s son into the spotlight as Joe Biden seeks the Democratic 2020 presidential nomination. The news came just hours before 10 Democratic contenders met in Atlanta for a debate. Hunter Biden has been the subject of scrutiny in recent months over his business dealings in Ukraine. President Donald Trump’s efforts to convince Ukraine’s President to investigate the company that had reportedly paid Biden as much as $50,000 per month to sit on its board is the subject of the House’s impeachment probe. There is no evidence of wrongdoing on the part of either Biden in Ukraine. Lunden Alexis Roberts, 28, filed the lawsuit back in May asking for child support and health care for the baby, who was born in August of 2018. Roberts’ legal team’s latest filings say that Biden’s family members are eligible for protection by the Secret Service. Roberts petitioned the court to seal any information concerning the identity of the child.
