‘Fake News’ Crusaders Caught Red Handed CREATING Russian Bots to BLACKLIST Conservatives

If you aren’t FURIOUS by the time you’re done reading this, you may want to check your pulse.

What a time to be alive, folks.  

I mean that with every ounce of sincerity and sarcasm that you could possibly imbue from that sentence.  We are living in a world that is evolving so rapidly before our very eyes that we may just lose sight of exactly what it means to be truthful.

Let’s not take that lightly.  Truth, the pursuit of it, and the dissemination of it, are the key principles to forming the basis of our very morality.  Without morality, we cannot have a society – or even a civilization.  Our entire history as a species, from the moment we woke up and began this adventure, was to seek the truth.

Trending: Tim Allen Beats Liberal Establishment, Ratings Soar for ‘Last Man Standing’

Now, thanks to layers of nuance, opinion, bias, greed, and hate, we have to dig for the truth.

Everyday, I wake up to stare into the abyss of this truth-seeking.  I can choose one topic for the day, let’s say its the border wall, and I can read about it on three different “news” websites.  What I glean from those three sites is a similar difference of realities to that of a gaggle of young children when you ask them who broke the window?

In short, the mainstream media, (which is funded by the same advertisers who can fund politicians through Citizens United), is playing a game of selective truth.  CNN tells us one thing.  Fox News, another.  Somewhere in the middle might be reality.

In the latest battle over the truth, (and how we find it), those in the media have ramped up their inexcusable bias to the umpteenth degree.  Spawned by their pure hatred for Donald Trump, this corporately controlled informational monopoly needed a plan to neuter his executive power during the 2018 midterms.

That plan?  Convince the American people that conservative leaning news and opinion sites were being weaponized by Russian “bots” in order to influence the coming election.  This was the narrative that spawned the “fake news” cavalcade on the left, as well as the sudden and abrupt glut of fly by night “fact checking” companies whose sole purpose was to tag conservative content creators with a Scarlet Letter, or a “demerit”, or a Red X…or whatever their imaginary rating system called for.

[Author’s note:  In the lead up to the 2018 midterms, I was bombarded with emails from these sort of companies, nitpicking the most asinine of metaphorical concerns about my writing.  Since the elections have ended, I have received not one inquiry.  That should tell us all about the motives behind this nonsense.]

Now, in an inexcusable and traitorous revelation, we have discovered that one of the main proponents of the “Russian bot” story was simply making it all up.  And, yes, these are the same folks that had several of my colleagues blacklisted for being “Russian bots”, thus effecting their ability to put food on the table.

Operatives with New Knowledge, a group affiliated with [Former President Barack Obama campaign organizer Mikey] Dickerson, created thousands of Twitter accounts posing as Russian bots to boost the election-year chances of Jones — the accounts began following Moore’s Twitter account in October 2017. The project created a slew of Facebook accounts as well that were designed to troll conservatives into opposing Moore.

But the misinformation project attracted attention from local and national media, falsely suggesting Russia was backing Moore’s candidacy. The Montgomery Advertiser, for one, was the first to cover the story using the Russian-bot angle. National media outlets quickly followed suit. (REPORT: Facebook Dings Dem Operatives Who Pulled A Fast One During Alabama Election)

“Roy Moore flooded with fake Russian Twitter followers,” read the headline on a New York Post story, which cited the Advertiser. WaPo focused its reporting on the fact that Moore blamed Democrats for the fake accounts. Other major national outlets picked up on the story shortly thereafter, with many pundits mocking Moore for blaming Democratic operatives.

The cost of the effort, which was funded by liberal billionaire Reid Hoffman, totaled $100,000 — the identical amount Facebook says the Russian Internet Research Agency spent trolling people on social media leading up to the 2016 presidential election. Dickerson, who has not responded to TheDCNF’s repeated requests for comment about the campaign, finally responded to reporters Monday.

This sort of “Red Scare” nonsense should have no place in American politics, but, yet…here it is, with Barack Obama’s name attached to it.

Worse still, the New Knowledge model directly affected the livelihoods of American political writers, cartoonists, satirists, and content creators at the behest of an Obama crony with no interest in finding the truth.  Rather, Dickerson and his posse of progressive meddlers were looking only for power, success, and the obliteration of the First Amendment.

This subversion of our right to free speech, through means of such a dastardly disinformation campaign must not go unpunished.  Otherwise, we have forfeited our First Amendment rights.

Nancy’s Lame Excuse for Trying to Cancel SOTU Gets ROASTED Online

We won’t hold our breath for this sort of brazen nonsense by Nancy Pelosi to get “fact checked” any time soon. 

Published

Nancy Pelosi

There is an increasingly petty war raging in Washington DC this week between liberal lawmakers and the President himself.

Trump is refusing to budge on his proposed border wall, while still continuing to maintain hope that the democrats will eventually return to the negotiating table.

On the other side of the conflict is Nancy Pelosi, whose demeanor has deteriorated over the course of the the last 48 hours.  Now, after her daughter gruesomely described the elder Pelosi’s toughness as likely to induce decapitation, it seem that Nancy has turned the sentiment metaphorical.

Instead of actually decapitating the President, (something we’ve already been forced to imagine thanks to Kathy Griffin), she’s going to cut the metaphorical head off of the metaphorical snake that she has anthropomorphized Trump as…at least for the sake of that long-winded anecdote.

In cowboy talk’; she’s going to head him off at the pass.

On Wednesday, Pelosi wrote to the president to rescind her Jan. 3 invitation for him to address Congress on January 29, in keeping with tradition.

Pelosi blamed a lack of available security due to the ongoing partial government shutdown: “This requires hundreds of people working on the logistics and security of it. Most of those people are either furloughed or victims of the shutdown. The president’s shutdown. But that isn’t the point. The point is security. … [It’s] a security decision which is completely out of my hands.”

The only problem with that excuse was, well…everything.

We won’t hold our breath for this sort of brazen nonsense by Nancy Pelosi to get “fact checked” any time soon.

‘That’s Appalling!’ CNN Hosts Lose It After Trump Jokes About ‘Salad’ (Video)

Classic CNN!

The White House recently hosted the national football champion Clemson Tigers.

President Trump personally threw down cash from his own pocket, but was resoundingly mocked by the MSM for providing a meal consisting entirely of fast food.

We’re talking McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s Domino’s, etc.

A little weird? Probably.

Look:

CNN took things a step further, though, after 45 made a joke about “salad” while speaking to the team…

Trump: “So I had a choice. Do we have no food for you? Because we have a shutdown, or do we give you some little quick salads that the first lady will make, along with — along with the second lady, they’ll make some salads.

Erin Burnett and Joan Walsh flipped out.

Walsh: “That’s appalling. It seems to me like the president will not be happy until there is not one single female Republican voter in the country. It’s incredibly sexist.

Burnett: “I’m not over-reading it. He made a joke that was sexist about women.

WATCH:

Classic CNN nonsense, huh?

Trump the misogynist! How dare he ask his stay-at-home wife to make salad!?

Of all things!

Facepalm.

CNN is a much funnier network than Comedy Central.

They know what makes the people laugh and they constantly deliver the goods.

What’s weird is how their ratings never surpass Fox News. Hmm.

Oh, well.

Check out the best, worst, and most hilarious moments from the communications wing of the Democrat party in one video supercut…

Now, check out the best of MSNBC…

From Daily Wire:

Each year, The Washington Free Beacon presents a roundup of MSNBC’s biggest failures or otherwise shoddy reporting and commentary.

WATCH:

Host Joy-Ann Reid agrees with guest Elie Mystal.

The way to “get” President Donald Trump is to go after his children.

ELIE MYSTAL: “Do you remember in ‘The Firm,’ how Tom Cruise brings down the entire mob on overbilling? In these reports, what we have is Ivanka Trump, as part of the Trump organization, overbilling the inaugural committee. That could be it right there. What we now have — this is the first time — look, we’ve talked a lot about Don Jr., we know now he was at the Trump Tower meeting, we talked a lot about Eric, because he seems to be Fredo.”

This is the first time that we have Ivanka—which is like the only kid he likes—in the crosshairs.She apparently, according to these reports, was involved with overcharging the inaugural committee, and somebody had to tell her: this is going to look bad when we get audited. For a long time I thought that the only way we are really going to get to Trump is if you go after his kids. If you put the kids in legal peril, that’s the only thing that’s going to shock him out of his lying, deceitful, cocoon. And this could be the way to do it.

JOY REID: “There is this finding that people — we’re going to talk about this later in the show — that you can’t indict a sitting President. But it doesn’t say anything about a sitting President’s daughter.

WATCH:

Over 60 million Americans voted for Donald Trump. Over 60 million Americans voted for Hillary Clinton.

Of course, the former first lady won the popular vote. However, the former businessman won the electoral vote.

One of those things matters more than the other and for good reason.

It is to prevent tyranny of the majority.

According to MSNBC, though, Trump wasn’t “democratically” elected.

MSNBC panelists have come to the astute conclusion that President Donald Trump wasn’t actually elected — at least not “democratically.”

During an off-the-rails segment Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Hardball” with host Chris Matthews, two separate panelists claimed that Trump’s hush money payments in 2016 to adult film star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal “robbed the American people of their right to vote.”

Here’s what host Lawrence O’Donnell has to say about border patrol:

They destroy water bottles that are left in the desert by Samaritans that are doing what Donald Trump’s bible tells them to do.

WATCH:

The problem?

The video shown by O’Donnell is from 2011 and published in 2013.

Hmm.

Who was president during that time?
