Rick Santorum Says Media Politicizing McCain’s Death. Here’s How CNN Panel Responded.

Published

The media is always on the prowl for some new way to take a figurative sledgehammer to President Trump and bash him three ways from Sunday, so it should be no surprise that since the passing of Sen. John McCain over the weekend, news outlets have been doing their best to find some way to use this tragedy as a means to attack the president.

Former presidential candidate Rick Santorum made an appearance on Chris Cuomo’s show on CNN where he called the media out for this kind of shenanigans. You can pretty much guess how the panel responded. It wasn’t pretty.

“I just don’t think it does anything to the memory of John McCain to use him as a cudgel to beat up the president,” Santorum told Cuomo. “The media seems to have this fascination to try to use the death of John McCain to further belittle and beat up Donald Trump.”

Cuomo shot back, saying, “You think we need to do that to find reasons to criticize the president? This is a moment that matters.”

Bakari Sellers then accused the GOP of becoming a party of “cowardice” under President Trump, with members trying to “contort themselves into pretzels” as they defend Trump’s behavior.

“The fact is, you have John McCain who is a war hero. Even my Democrats, even the people on the left who want to chastise him for whatever his policy may have been, we’re saying that now is not the time,” he said. “You have a president this week who did not stand up and show the best of what we can be, and that’s a problem. John McCain deserves all the glory today.”

Sellers added: “You don’t have to kowtow like Rick’s doing right now on TV and make excuses for a president who does not deserve excuses.”

With that, Santorum referenced Cuomo’s brother, Andrew, castigating America as being “never that great” in a speech last Wednesday. It was then that the panel erupted into a schoolyard slap-fest.

“You’re so petty,” Sellers said, shaking his head.

Cuomo interjected: “Come on, don’t play cheap. You talk about my brother … you can’t do better than that? I’ll give you a hundred things about my brother that are true that are much worse than that.”​

Santorum is absolutely spot on here. The mainstream media will do anything within their power to find something to justify some sort of attack on President Trump and his administration. Even when he does good things, they still find a way to flip it and make it negative.

Right now, Trump bashing sells. They play it all off as if it is some sort of crusade to rid the world of corruption and evil, but at the end of the day, it’s about two things: money and the progressive agenda.

The left-wing media is nothing more than propaganda producers for the Democratic Party. They are likely rewarded in many ways for their service and are thus willing to sell out the American people to get ahead. Tragic, really.

US Pop Star Offers to Pay Fines For Olympic Team Protesting Skimpy Outfits

The IOC wants the women to remain scantily clad, and this is undoubtedly on account of their incessant greed.

Published

The Olympics may have built themselves as some sort of prestigious and untouchable global event in years past, but the last few decades have revealed just what a shady cash-grab the games have become. It all began in the 90’s when the financially-struggling Winter Olympics added snowboarding to the games, in a move that was blatantly meant to generate ad revenue from the emerging sport and its fans.  In this quest to cash in, the International Olympic Committee refused to allow any actual snowboarding organizations participate in the operations, which drove several of the world’s best to boycott.  This, in turn, completely ruined the concept that the gold medalists were truly the best in the world, and exposed the IOC as nothing more than a marketing firm. Now, in 2021, a number of female athletes are complaining that they are being forced to wear skimpier clothes than their male counterparts, (often in the same discipline), to which the IOC responded with a “be quiet and play” sort of attitude. Again, the skimpier outfits equate to more ratings, so Olympic organizers are refusing to make accommodations. This has led US pop star Pink to step up.  US pop star Pink has offered to pay the fines handed out to the Norwegian women’s beach handball team, after they wore shorts like their male counterparts instead of bikini bottoms. The team was fined 1,500 euros (£1,295) for “improper clothing” at the European Beach Handball Championships last week. “I’m very proud of the Norwegian female beach handball team for protesting sexist rules about their uniform,” tweeted the singer on Sunday. “Good on ya, ladies,” she added. “I’ll be happy to pay your fines for you. Keep it up.” In doing so, the Olympics will get their coveted cash and these female athletes will be able to perform…

GOP Rep. Says There’s ‘Credible’ Evidence of Wuhan Lab-Leak Theory

China has been avoiding any such investigation for months now.

Published

From the very moment that the COVID-19 pandemic began, there were concerns that China wasn’t telling us the truth. This was primarily based on Beijing’s horrendous record of dishonesty when it comes to the international community, which has been ever-so frequent in cases in which the Chinese government could be made to appear cruel or uncaring. To be fair, it doesn’t take long for most to realize that this is, in fact, reality, especially as we continue to receive credible reports of the nation’s use of concentration camps and ethnic cleansing. In the case of the coronavirus, not only did the world discover that the data coming out of Beijing was wholly incorrect, but that a laboratory specializing in the exact type of coronaviruses that caused COVID-19 happened to be just a few miles away from the epicenter of the pandemic. Now, despite numerous attempts to stall or stymy efforts to investigate the theory that pandemic began as a lab-leak, one US lawmaker is claiming that there is credible evidence of just such a possibility.  Sunday, on FNC’s “The Next Revolution,” Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-IA) stressed the importance of investigating the origins of COVID-19, and in particular, China’s role. His statement was stern. “As you know, we still have yet to have any notice that there will be an investigation. And so I think, rightfully, we used the powers of oversight that we have in Congress and we convened a hearing. Unfortunately, none of the Democrats attended that hearing. But the expert testimony from the witnesses was quite profound and quite significant. “And I think as they said, and I would tend to agree that this virus came from the laboratory, whether it was a leak, whether it was accidental, whether it was intentional, whether it was manmade or whether it…
