STUTTGART, Germany — U.S. Air Forces Europe said troops holding “Make America Great Again” hats during President Donald Trump’s visit Thursday to Ramstein Air Base were not in violation of military rules that prohibit taking part in partisan activities while in uniform.

“There is no rule against Airmen bringing personal items to be signed by the president,” USAFE said in a statement.

More than 200 airmen greeted Trump on Thursday at a Ramstein Air Base aircraft hangar, where the president and first lady Melania Trump were greeted with cheers.

People thought CNN’s “journalist of the year” was only guilty of creating false stories on a “grand scale.”

Nope.

Turns out the guy is much worse.

Influential German news weekly Der Spiegel said Sunday it would file a criminal complaint against a disgraced reporter after it emerged he may have embezzled donations intended for Syrian street children.

Claas Relotius, 33, resigned this month after admitting to making up stories and inventing protagonists in more than a dozen articles in the magazine’s print and online editions.

It appears, once again, that CNN is the butt of the joke.

Sorry, not sorry?

You need 2,000 people to conduct an accurate poll.

According to 2,206 adults, one “journalist” stands out as the most distrusted.

He works for CNN.

Any guesses?

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

Larry King worked for CNN for a very long time.

In a recent interview, he admitted what a lot of people have figured for a good while now.

According to Larry, CNN “stopped doing news a long time ago.”

Partial transcript:

HOST RICK SANCHEZ: You know it’s interesting. As I listen to you I’m thinking that both you and I are old enough to remember that there was a lot of antagonism during the 1960s. There was a lot of antagonism during Watergate. There was certainly antagonism during the Clinton years. But there is something, maybe it’s an undercurrent, that is different now. Can you put your finger on it? What is it?

KING: Two things, Rick — the internet and cable news. Could you imagine cable news in Watergate? And they don’t do news anymore. In fact, RT is one of the few channels doing news. RT does news. CNN stopped doing news a long time ago. They do Trump. Fox is Trump TV and MSNBC is anti-Trump all the time. You don’t see a story — there was vicious winds and storms in the Northeast the other day – not covered on any of the three cable networks, not covered. Not covered! So when CNN started covering Trump — they were the first — they covered every speech he made and then they made Trump the story. So, Trump is the story in America. I would bet that ninety-eight percent of all Americans mention his name at least once a day. And when it’s come to that, when you focus on one man, I know Donald 40 years — I know the good side of Donald and I know the bad side of Donald — I think he would like to be a dictator. I think he would love to be able to just run things. So, he causes a lot of this. Then his fight with the media and fake news. I’ve been in the media a long time, like you — longer than you, Rick. And at all my years at CNN, in my years at Mutual Radio, I have never seen a conversation where a producer said to a host “pitch the story this way. Angle it that way. Don’t tell the truth.” Never saw it. Never saw it.

SANCHEZ: You know it’s funny, just quick because you know these producers are telling me you guys have to start wrapping this up … you said something interesting about how CNN played along with Trump. I think they only played along or at least gave him that much airtime in many ways because they didn’t think he was going to win, correct?

KING: I guess it’s to their regret. But, they covered him as a character. They carried every speech he made. They carried him more than Fox News, at the beginning. And so they built the whole thing up and the Republicans had a lot of candidates and they all had weaknesses. When I saw Senator Cruz hug Donald Trump the other day I said, “this is what America has become.” He said that Cruz’s father helped kill Kennedy!

Colorado Mayor Bans Pledge of Allegiance Because It’s Not Legitimate

The left-wing Mayor of Silverton, Colorado, Shane Fuhrman, unilaterally banned the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance.

The left-wing Mayor of Silverton, Colorado, Shane Fuhrman, unilaterally banned the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance because he finds it unnecessary. Mayor Furhman insisted that the Pledge isn’t even legitimate, saying, “it’s not really a thing,” when he argued against reciting the pledge, according to the Denver Patch. The issue came up last year when the city began meeting over zoom because of the coronavirus. At that time, it was decided that the council members who didn’t want to recite the pledge would just turn off their computer cameras during the segment of the meeting. But even during that period, the mayor’s request to ditch the pledge was voted down 4-3. However, now that the meetings are back to in-person, the mayor simply acted unilaterally and ended the recitation of the Pledge. “Due to the direct and indirect threats, inappropriate comments in and out of our public meetings, and general divisiveness and issues created in our community, we will not be reciting the Pledge of Allegiance during Town of Silverton trustee meetings,” Fuhrman said during theJune 14 meeting. Fuhrman went on to demand that if anyone had proof in the city’s rules saying he could not make such a decision they better speak up. “If you’d like to find somewhere in the code, something that doesn’t permit me to do this,” he said, “then I welcome that discussion at our next meetings.” At least one council member was not happy with the decision. Trustee Molly Barela reminded the mayor that they had already voted to continue reciting the pledge, and added, “It’s been done for a long time. We all took an oath, and we as a board we decided it would be done.” Members of the public who were in attendance at the meeting were no less supportive…

Promise Broken: 60 Percent of Americans Will Suffer Tax Hike Under Biden’s Plan

Biden ran for office repeatedly claiming that no one making less than $400K would pay more in taxes under his plan.

Biden ran for office repeatedly claiming that no one making less than $400K would pay more in taxes under his plan. We are now seeing that Biden lied. The Tax Policy Center released new data on the realities of Biden’s tax proposals and found that Biden’s policies will slam middle and low-income taxpayers right where it hurts. The organization says that 99.8 percent of Americans earning between $500,00 and $1million will pay an average of $8,810 more in taxes each year under Biden’s tax plan. This might be in keeping with Biden’s campaign pledge that only “the rich” will pay more. But the TPC also found that people who make far less will also get hit under Biden. The center says that people making between $75,000 and $500,00 will also get pinched. This is not as a result of direct taxes on income but of the impact of the other hikes in rates, such as the corporate tax rise. According to the Daily Mail: Three-quarters of households earning between $75,000 and $100,000 annually would face paying an additional $440 per year in taxes under Biden’s tax hikes, according to the data released last week. About 69 percent of those earning between $100,000 and $200,000 would see their yearly tax bill rise by $830 on average, according to the analysis. Meanwhile, 83.7 percent of those earning between $200,000 and $500,000 would see an increase of $2,040 on average. But most Americans will be impacted indirectly by Biden’s giant tax hike. “For those looking to see if Biden kept his promise to not raise taxes for those making $400,000 or less, the answer is: Mostly, but not entirely,” wrote Howard Gleckman, a senior fellow at the Tax Policy Center. “Including corporate tax increases, most households would pay more in 2022. About three-quarters…
