HYPOCRITES: ‘Wash. Post’ Spiked VA Dem. Lt. Gov. Sex Abuse Claims For ‘Lack of Proof,’ Didn’t Stop Them with Kavanaugh

Wouldn’t it be something if the mainstream media was held accountable for their blatant biases?

Fake News

The Washington Post is claiming to stand on principle for not publishing stories about sexual abuse allegation filed against Virginia’s Democrat Lt. Governor because they could not get any corroboration of the charges. OK, great. So, why did they go all in on all the false charges they published about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh last October?

I’ll tell you why: because the Virginia Lt. Gov. is a Democrat whom they wanted to protect while Brett Kavanaugh is a Republican whom they wanted to destroy, that’s why.

In the wake of the wreckage that is the gubernatorial career of Virginia’s Democrat Gov. Ralph Northam, all of a sudden, the past charges against Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax resurfaced.

The Allegations:

A fellow at Stanford University named Vanessa Tyson accused Fairfax of sexually assaulting her in a hotel room at the 2004 Democrat National Convention.

So What Does the Post Have to Do With It?

It turns out that Tyson approached the Washington Post about these allegations when Fairfax was running for Lt. Gov. in 2017. The Post, though, ignored the story because Tyson was the only person they could find to substantiate the accusations.

In other words, they could not find a second source or a witness to shore up Tyson’s claims.

So, the Post refused to run the story. This week the paper explained why they spiked the story back in 2017.

The Washington Post, in phone calls to people who knew Fairfax from college, law school and through political circles, found no similar complaints of sexual misconduct against him. Without that, or the ability to corroborate the woman’s account — in part because she had not told anyone what happened — The Washington Post did not run a story.

She said she never told anyone about what happened at the time or in the years that followed until shortly before she approached The Post.

Well, that is, perhaps, a good journalistic standard.

Now the Post’s Hypocrisy:

However, that is not the standard the Post employed in its hundreds of stories attacking Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh when three women came forward with accusations of separate and distinctly different instances of sexual assault but not one of them had any corroborating proof.

The Washington Post went full bore in a full-frontal assault on Kavanaugh and reported every last lie they could find.

So, where was the Post’s “standards” with Kavanaugh?

Well, we know exactly what happened here, don’t we?

The Post did not want to publish stories that would tar Lt. Gov. Fairfax as a sexual abuser because Fairfax is a Democrat. The paper wanted to protect Fairfax as a result.

On the other hand, Kavanaugh is a Republican, so “standards” were not wanted for the paper’s campaign to destroy judge Kavanaugh. You see, the judge was someone the Post wanted to ruin, and all those airy “journalistic standards” were an impediment to that.

NO JOKE: Bernie Sanders Says He Would Let Boston Bomber Vote — From Jail (Watch)

There are no words…

Every proud American has a duty to make sure President Trump is re-elected simply so Democrat Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders never steps foot in the Oval Office. His socialist policies would cause irreversible damage on America – and that’s the point. That is what progressives want to see happen. Monday night on CNN, Bernie said he’d be cool with the Boston bomber voting from prison. But not just him. All prisoners. No joke. From Daily Wire: Socialist Bernie Sanders said during a CNN Democratic town hall event that he would let the Boston Marathon bomber, sex predators, and murderers vote in U.S. elections while in prison. An audience member asked, “Would [you] support enfranchising people like the Boston Marathon bomber, a convicted terrorist and murderer? Do you think those convicted of sexual assault should have the opportunity to vote for politicians who could have a direct impact on women’s rights?” Sanders noted, “If somebody commits a serious crime, sexual assault, murder, they’re going to be punished. They may be in jail 10 years, 20 years, 50 years, their whole life. That’s what happens when you commit a serious crime. But I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy. Yes, even for terrible people, because once you start chipping away … you’re running down a slippery slope … I believe even if they are in jail, they’re paying the price to society, that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy.” Bernie topped it off with this final line, “I believe every single person does have the right to vote.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMyrChsBG68 Just completely crazy, right? Speaking of crazy, Ann Coulter has completely lost her mind. In 2016, she backed Donald Trump harder than anybody because he promised to take a tough stance…

EXPOSED: Ocasio-Cortez & Omar Caught Violating Rules, Experts Say They WON’T Be Punished

Because, you know – OF COURSE!

If you’re a “cool” freshman member of Congress, such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) and Ilhan Omar (MN), you can do whatever you please and get away with it. Well, that pretty much pertains to every member of Congress – but that’s beside the point. AOC and Omar may have been caught violating the rules, but they’re going to skate. Craziness. From Daily Caller: House progressives are violating congressional rules by using a dark money group to help accomplish their caucus’s legislative goals, experts told The Daily Caller News Foundation. The leaders of the 97-member Congressional Progressive Caucus could face a formal censure or reprimand for using outside funds and services from the Congressional Progressive Caucus Center (CPCC), a nonprofit group, according to the experts. House rules prohibit congressional caucuses from accepting such support from outside organizations. But although the progressive caucus’s relationship with the outside charity group “seems like a clear violation of the rule,” there likely won’t be any consequences anytime soon, Acton Institute editor Joe Carter, who has researched congressional caucuses, told TheDCNF. Omar and Ocasio-Cortez joined Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in a video put out by Rolling Stone. The trio says a whole lot while literally saying nothing. Pelosi even went as far as to demand President Trump not seek re-election in 2020. You know, because a booming economy and all-time low minority unemployment is apparently a bad thing. Pelosi: “If I had to say something to Trump, I probably wouldn’t say anything, because I don’t think that it’s worth the extra attention.” She added, “Mr. President, do the country a favor, don’t run.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RiQr6XtcdwE#action=share Omar represents Minnesota’s fifth district. A new report claims it is the “terrorist recruitment capital” of the United States of America. As if Omar wasn’t dealing with enough at the moment,…
