FAKE NEWS FALLOUT: CNN Forced to Admit Confusion on MAGA Teen Story

Of course, there are always two sides to the story – something that CNN certainly hasn’t gotten the hang of.

MAGA

It has been one hellacious week for the mainstream media, after two supposed “bombshells” reports have been wholly debunked by the truth.

By now, you would have to be fairly well separated from the “news” to have missed a story of what appeared to be a smug young man “taunting” a Native American elder in Washington DC over the weekend.  The photo went viral almost immediately, due to the left’s ability to draw attention to the boy’s “Make America Great Again” hat, and the media’s current obsession with vilifying the President.

Of course, there are always two sides to the story – something that CNN certainly hasn’t gotten the hang of.  Today, the malfeasant media miscreants were forced to admit that they really didn’t have any clue what they were talking about with previous takes on the tale.

A new video that surfaced Sunday shows what happened before and after the encounter Friday in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington.
In the new video, another group taunts the students from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky with disparaging and vulgar language. The group of black men, who identify as members of the Hebrew Israelites, also shout racist slurs at participants of the Indigenous Peoples Rally and other passersby.
The new video adds context to an encounter viewed by many as the latest sign of bigotry infecting the country. Screenshots of a smirking teen staring down Omaha tribe elder Nathan Phillips spread through the internet, sparking widespread outrage.
But a teen who says he was involved in the encounter said the students’ actions have been wrongly interpreted as racist. In a statement, Nick Sandmann said the students decided to raise their voices to drown out the Hebrew Israelites’ inflammatory comments — not to intimidate or mock Phillips. Phillips has said the teen blocked his escape.
And here is the clincher:
Kaya Taitano, who shot the viral video, said the teens were chanting “Build the wall” and “Trump 2020.” Those chants were not audible in videos reviewed by CNN.
The entire impetus behind vilifying this young man was to disparage the President and his supposed “racist wall”.  As it turns out, there is no evidence of these teens doing any such thing.
There are eyewitness accounts of other chants coming from the school group, however,
Almost an hour into the video, the students begin amassing in large numbers on the steps behind the men. As the men continue shouting, the video captures students chanting back.
“A student in our group asked one of our teacher chaperones for permission to begin our school spirit chants to counter the hateful things that were being shouted at our group,” Sandmann said in his statement. “The chants are commonly used at sporting events. They are all positive in nature and sound like what you would hear at any high school,” he said.
As for the “smirk”, as labeled by the mainstream media?
Sandmann denied that he blocked Phillips’ path and insisted that Phillips was the one who “locked eyes” with him. He also denied that anyone said “build that wall” or anything hateful.
“I was not intentionally making faces at the protestor. I did smile at one point because I wanted him to know that I was not going to become angry, intimidated or be provoked into a larger confrontation,” Sandmann said in his statement.
This is fake news at its finest, folks, and it is being weaponized to create division in our nation.
Instead, we must remember that we are a nation united, in which all are created equal – and that includes the Black Israelites, Native Americans, and teen boys trying to smile through tense and uncomfortable situations.

Trump Reportedly Fired Ukraine Ambassador After Learning She Meddled In Biden Investigation

If so, she could be in some trouble…

When the United States ambassador to Ukraine was abruptly fired in recent days, eyebrows were raised. Why would President Trump do such a thing at a time when tensions with the Eastern European nation are slightly heightened, due to a phone call POTUS had with the leader of the country? Oh, that Trump. Always doing something to cover up a scandal! Or so Democrats thought. Apparently, the ambassador was doing some shady stuff and team Trump said, not so fast – please kindly see yourself out of the building. Here are all the details known, thus far… From The Blaze: On Friday’s radio program, award-winning investigative journalist John Solomon joined Glenn Beck to detail how Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, obstructed investigations into potential corruption and interference by Democratic and Ukrainian officials in the 2016 U.S. election. The Trump administration recalled Yovanovitch from her post in May. The whistleblower complaint at the center of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump alleged that Yovanovitch was recalled because of claims made by former Prosecutor General Yuri Lutsenko. Continued: A White House memo of the July 25 phone call referenced in the whistleblower complaint, documents President Trump speaking to Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelensky about Yovanovitch. “The former ambassador from the United States, the woman, was bad news and the people she was dealing with in the Ukraine were bad news, so I just want to let you know that,” he said. WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KR4469gbN3o WATCH: To open a very serious hearing, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) delivers a completely made-up account of President Trump’s conversation with the Ukrainian President. Very normal and professional. https://twitter.com/BlazeTV/status/1177218754557751296?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1177218754557751296&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fwatch-democrat-adam-schiff-makes-up-quotes-from-trumps-ukraine-call Reactions: If the conversation were as damning as Schiff et al would like, he would have simply read directly from it, instead of making up dialogue. Probably…

Siblings Upset That Brother Was Shot Dead By Store Clerk While Attempting Armed Robbery (Watch)

This might just be the video of the year…

People deal with grief in different ways. Is there a right and wrong way to grieve? Yes, apparently. There is. For example, if your brother points a gun at a store clerk and demands all the cash in the safe, you can’t be all that mad when he is shot dead. In fact, it should be expected. You’d think, right? Not for these two ignoramuses, though. They think the clerk was in the wrong for defending himself. Yeah, for real. This might just be the video of the year. No hyperbole. It’s that jaw-dropping. It goes to show how ridiculous some people truly are. ENJOY: Dayton, Ohio family outraged their sibling was shot dead by a store clerk while attempting an armed robbery https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1183153740972359680?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1183153740972359680&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F What’s that, Forrest? You have something to say? Okay then… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vt9q-WChfeM America is quickly going the way of Europe when it comes to nonsensical gun policies. Take this convenience store worker, for example. He was fired for defending his own life! From Fox News: Oregon authorities are seeking a would-be thief who was armed with a hatchet when he tried to rob a convenience store, only to flee when the clerk drew a gun and called 911. However, the clerk’s quick thinking cost him his job, with the president of Plaid Pantry in Oak Grove explaining to local station KOIN-TV that the chain has a zero-tolerance policy for weapons. He said employees are trained to de-escalate robbery situations to avoid injury, according to the station. The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office on Friday released surveillance video of the incident which took place April 28 at the store, seeking tips in identifying the suspect who fled empty-handed and without the 12-inch hatchet.
