CNN Lambasted by NYC Cop Over Mail Bomb Exploitation

The former police commissioner thoroughly embarrassed the network after they politicized the events.

CNN’s coverage of the serial pipe bombings that rocked the nation has been absolutely mesmerizing, due to their own involvement as a target.

Of course, the mainstream media, CNN included, is attempting to play this one close to the chest.  They are dancing around the fact that these attacks were made to appear as though they came from some right wing militant or militants, and have taken a strangely scolding tone when addressing the President and his response to the attacks.

Now, a high ranking official formerly with the NYPD has embarrassed CNN by walking off set as they attempted to politicize the events.

Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik told Breitbart News Tonight Wednesday evening that he had walked off a CNN set earlier in the day because the network had politicized its coverage of mail bombs sent to top Democratic Party figures.

Kerik, who led the New York Police Department (NYPD) during the 9/11 terror attacks, told hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak that he had pulled out his microphone and earpiece and walked off the set minutes before a scheduled live panel discussion regarding the mail bombs.

What set him off?

Kerik recalled, “I was scheduled to be on CNN. We were supposed to talk about the investigation and seizure of these devices, and right in the beginning of the set, they suspended us and they went to John Brennan, who was somewhere speaking … and then he went on a 10-minute rant about the president.”

He added, “As somebody that led through the worst terror attack in our country’s history, and knows how important unity is, especially on a day like today, in the aftermath of this, I just found it appalling that CNN would use this time to let this guy go on this political rant about the president, and I walked off. I took off the earpiece and the mic and I left. I can’t stand it. It just turns my stomach what these people are doing, and it’s wrong.”

Brennan’s complaints about the President came at a time in which Trump himself was condemning the violence, and calling for unity in our nation.

US State Pushes to Make Mask Mandates Permanent

The move is sure to have freedom advocates in the Beaver State enraged.

The American landscape is currently littered with a hodgepodge of coronavirus precautions, as each state, country, town, and business takes the COVID-19 pandemic at their own level of seriousness.

This has, of course, made it somewhat difficult for any individual to navigate their day in compliance to the ever-changing rigidity of the pandemic’s threat.  And, furthermore, it has led to some questionable decisions by local leaders looking to simplify the issue.

The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) assembled a Rules Advisory Committee (RAC) earlier this week to address a permanent indoor mask mandate in the state. Oregon is one of a few states that still retain one nearly two years into the pandemic.

The committee included several community stakeholders, including representatives from the hospitality industry, the business sector, and faith communities, according to local ABC affiliate KATU.

Local leaders attempted to downplay the “permanent” status of the mandate.

Dr. Paul Cieslak, the medical director for communicable diseases and immunizations with OHA, explained to KATU that OHA’s potential “permanent” indoor mask mandate is not necessarily permanent because it can be repealed.

“Permanent means indefinite. It doesn’t necessarily mean permanent,” Cieslak said. “We can repeal it as well, but we are only allowed to have a temporary rule for 180 days, and anything that goes beyond 180 days, we cannot extend it.”

The move is sure to have freedom advocates in the Beaver State enraged.

Trump Makes Major Fundraising Haul for Social Media Platform

That’s a lot of moolah.

Published

Truth is coming, and if recent fundraising figures are any indication of the might of the forthcoming social media platform, the online world could be in for a major paradigm shift.

The network, which was conjured by former President Donald Trump as a response to the rampant online censorship of conservative voices, will undoubtedly be a smash hit when it eventually arrives.  And while the date for its inaugural truth to be posted has wavered a bit, there is no lack of support for the project.

Former President Trump’s social media group, Trump Media & Technology Group Corp. (TMTG), and its blank-check company announced on Saturday it had received a commitment of $1 billion from an unidentified “diverse group of institutional investors.”

TMTG and blank-check company Digital World Acquisition Corp. said that “subscription agreements for $1 billion in committed capital” would be received from an unknown group of investors once TMTG and Digital World are combined.

In October, Trump announced that he would be creating a social media network dubbed “Truth Social,” whose full launch is expected in the first quarter of 2022. The network has been advertised as a platform “that encourages open global conversation without discrimination on the basis of political ideology.”

Trump will undoubtedly rely heavily on Truth Social in the coming months, particularly as he begins to prepare for a likely 2024 reelection campaign.
