Dan Rather Unloads on Trump For Attacks on Media, Take a Look at What He Said

Published

on

Former CBS anchor Dan Rather was recently interviewed by CNN host Don Lemon, where he opted to take aim at President Donald Trump claiming that his verbal spankings handed out regularly to an unethical mainstream media are “straight out of Orwell,” thus proving this man never read 1984 and vastly misunderstands the point of the whole novel.

Rather isn’t exactly the best example of integrity in the media, what with his history of being fired over airing unverified documents about former President George W. Bush’s National Guard service and all.

Rather called Trump “authoritarian,” saying Trump wants Americans to believe that “the one and only truth comes from him.” When Lemon mentioned Trump stating, “Don’t believe what you see or what you hear, that’s not what’s happening,” Rather responded, “It’s straight out of Orwell … Orwell, what he wrote, it’s practically a shooting script for Donald Trump. … There is a method to this, and the method is to convince people that the only truth is the truth that comes from me, the ultimate power … As several people have said before me, he is not just attacking the truth, he wants to annihilate the truth. He wants to move us completely into the post-truth political era in which there’s no such thing as objective facts. He is the only fact.”

Rather claimed there “has been some desperation” in Trump’s recent attacks, adding, “And as he gets more desperate he takes bigger risks in telling bigger lies or more often telling lies. And telling people, ‘Look, don’t believe what you read or see anywhere else, just come to me. I have the ultimate truth, I am the way,’”

What is ironic about Rather’s remark is that in Orwell’s “1984,” Big Brother uses the media to control the masses. That is far more similar to the Barack Obama years, when the media acted like lapdogs for Obama. Trump targeting the media is precisely the opposite of 1984.

It’s quite clear that Dan Rather is talking out of his backside here and is fairly ignorant about the whole point behind Orwell’s work. The media in the novel is controlled by the government who has absolute power over the flow of information.

If you look at our own media, it’s quite clear this is not the case, especially given the fact the vast majority of news outlets spend their coverage time blasting the president for every move he makes. Obviously, our press is still free.

The president just doesn’t allow journalists to walk all over him and get away with lying about him and his policies. He’s a true counterpuncher. He fights back and this is not something these folks are used to.

Let’s hope he keeps holding their feet to the fire.

INSTANT CLASSIC: Pelosi Wishes A ‘Happy Thanksgiving’ — On Valentine’s Day (Watch)

My, my, my!

Every February, Americans celebrate the beloved holiday that is Thanksgiving.

Wait, that can’t be right.

So, why then did Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi wish Americans a “Happy Thanksgiving”…on Valentine’s Day?

Pelosi: “Happy Valentine’s Day. We saluted our victory – or the victory for the American people – earlier with chocolate. Chocolate from California, I call it the champagne of chocolate. So again, I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. You should go home now to your loved ones.

The brain freeze to end all brain freezes?

Speaking of Thanksgiving, President Trump was thankful for something that will have liberals running to their safe spaces.

From The Hill:

President Trump said Thursday that he is thankful “for having a great family and for having made a tremendous difference in this country.”

Trump made the comment when asked by reporters what he is grateful for on Thanksgiving shortly after holding a phone call with troops overseas.

Trump: “I’ve made a tremendous difference in the country. This country’s so much stronger than it was when I took office and you wouldn’t believe it.

Trump: “I mean you see it, but [it’s] so much stronger that people can’t even believe it. When I see foreign leaders, they say, ‘We cannot believe the difference in strength between the United States now and the United States two years ago.’

In other words, he’s thankful for MAGA.

At the 2019 State of the Union address, Trump spoke of unity. He also happened to bring up the fact that black, Hispanic, and Asian unemployment has hit record low levels.

Democrats weren’t exactly thrilled, for whatever the reason.

Pelosi refused to clap. She wouldn’t stand, either.

WATCH:

SMH.

According to the California Democrat, the “GOP attitude disrespects workers, dishonors our values and damages our economy.”

Here’s her statement:

San Francisco – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after the Department of Labor issued its January jobs statement, which does not include the Trump Shutdown’s impact on the 800,000 federal workers who were furloughed or forced to work without pay for 35 days:

“The January jobs report holds some encouraging news, but it belies the lasting financial damage that the Trump Shutdown has inflicted on hundreds of thousands of Americans across the nation. Federal workers, many of them veterans, saw their financial security shaken, their credit ratings harmed, and their lives upended by the longest shutdown in history. And now, with families still hurting, President Trump refuses to take a second senseless shutdown off the table.

“Meanwhile, House Republicans overwhelmingly voted against a pay raise for federal civilian workers, refusing to respect the perseverance and patriotism of the men and women who were just furloughed or forced to work without pay. This consistently callous GOP attitude disrespects workers, dishonors our values and damages our economy.

“House Democrats are working For The People, moving forward with our bold agenda to lower health costs, raise workers’ wages, and restore integrity to government. We must keep government open, and keep working to deliver an economy that works for every American, not just the wealthy and well-connected few.”

Pelosi recently gave a speech before America’s mayors. She repeatedly begged them to clap after she said something she felt deserved applause.

After thanking a member of her audience, she said, “That’s an applause line! I’ll let you know.”

OH MY GOD! Ilhan Omar Will Speak At Event With Man Who Praised the Killing of Jews

Is this real life?

John Salvatore

Published

on

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is being supported by members of her party in the aftermath of much-publicized anti-Semitic slurs.

That, single-handedly, might be what is allowing her to continue to push onward – along with the mainstream media refusing to push back.

It would make sense for Omar to disassociate herself with all things anti-Jew. But, nope.

Ilhan will be speaking at a conference with a man who called for murdering Jews.

You read that last sentence correctly.

From Jewish News Syndicate:

Despite battling accusations of anti-Semitism, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn) is due to speak this month at a fundraising event alongside a senior charity official who has published social-media posts praising the killing of Jews.

Islamic Relief USA is hosting a fundraising dinner for aid to Yemen on Feb. 23. Omar is due to speak alongside senior Islamic Relief USA official Yousef Abdallah, who was widely criticized in 2017 after the Middle East Forum found that he had expressed violently anti-Semitic ideas on his social-media accounts.

Continued:

Abdallah, who serves as Islamic Relief USA’s “operations manager,” shared a “very beautiful” modernized version of a Palestinian folk story about a resistance hero named Zharif al-Tawl, who took revenge against Jewish “gangs” that had purportedly attacked a Palestinian village by providing guns to “kill more than 20 jews” and “fire rockets at Tel Aviv.”

Pretty wild, isn’t it?

Other posts referred to Jews as “stinking,” and claimed that “the Jews put the outside wall of Al Aqsa [the mosque in Jerusalem] on fire.”

WHOA.

Vice President Mike Pence decided to make it known that he’s ticked off with Omar and her anti-Semitic tweets.

Pence says Omar must “face consequences.”

President Trump, too, says Omar needs to step down.

WATCH:

More on Omar, who said that refugees who come to America are “detained and tortured.”

From Free Beacon:

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) claimed during a rally on Thursday that refugees who come to the United States are “detained and tortured.”

Omar told the crowd of activists, joined in their goal of defunding Immigration and Customs Enforcement, about the story of how her family risked their lives to flee Somalia into Kenya, before eventually coming to the United States. She said that because of her experience, she will “cry” every time she sees a picture of a little girl “standing in the desert waiting to get processed in the country.”

Omar: “The difference between what is happening to some of those little girls and me is that I didn’t have a cage waiting for me. I had an open-armed people with moral clarity, awaiting us and saying ‘you’ve been through a lot, here’s your new home, you’re our new neighbor, you need water and you need food.’

WATCH:

In a recent interview, Omar goes as far as to suggest that Israel is not a democracy.

Omar wants USA powerlifting investigated because that’s what matters?

Ilhan has many lessons to learn.

However, if the MSM keeps covering for her she’ll never have the chance to educate herself about her reckless anti-Semitic ways.
