VIDEO: CNN’s Brian Stelter Goes on Tirade Against Trump, Ends Up Proving Him Right

Published

on

CNN host Brian Stelter is not what you might call a “big fan” of President Donald Trump, often using his air time to slam him and his administration in an attempt to capitalize on the Trump hate that has seemingly swept the country since his inauguration in 2017.

Well, his most recent tirade against the president ended up backfiring in his face in a most epic way, actually proving Trump right instead of taking him down.

Here’s the scoop.

Trending: Investigation Into Origin Of FBI Russia Probe Expanding Based on ‘New Evidence’

CNN’s Brian Stelter unintentionally legitimized President Donald Trump’s attacks on the media’s credibility when he claimed during a panel discussion that the president was “poisoning the American people” and that the American people have been “infected by the poison.”

Stelter, who made the comments while speaking at the Aspen Ideas Festival last week, said, “President Trump is poisoning the American people, a subset of the American people that have been infected by the poison, it is getting worse every day and we’re going to reckon with the consequences for decades.”

“I don’t mean to be the pessimist,” Stelter said. “I actually some days I am very optimistic. I wake up glass half-full a lot of days. And I think Trump’s pretty weak right now and we’re going to get through this, it’s an aberration.”

Stelter claimed that Trump is trying to destroy America’s news organizations because he calls out the media for lying and for spinning stories.

“[This] has never happened in our nation’s history as far as I’m aware,” Stelter said, ignoring the repeated attacks former President Barack Obama made on Fox News.

It’s pretty much a no-brainer to assume that the vast majority of the poisoning that’s happening to Americans in their political thinking is coming directly from people like Stelter and organizations like CNN.

These folks, who are supposed to be beholden to journalistic ethics, have forsaken their calling to be providers of fact and truth, opting instead to shove an agenda down the throats of the audience who consume their news products.

In other words, their job is to provide the material people need to think through issues, not to tell them what to think.

Perhaps one day the media will return to its roots as an arbiter of truth and hold all elected officials accountable for their actions instead of being the propaganda arm of a particular political party.

Investigation Into Origin Of FBI Russia Probe Expanding Based on ‘New Evidence’

Published

on

U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the FBI’s Russia probe has reportedly uncovered “new evidence” that is leading to an expansion of efforts to look into the matter. The evidence was apparently unearthed during a trip Durham took with Attorney General William Barr to Italy. Here are more details from TheBlaze: Sources told Fox News that Durham is now “very interested” in talking to former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, two of President Donald Trump’s most vocal critics who served in the Obama administration. Barr and Durham traveled to Italy on extremely short notice, according to the Daily Beast. Once at the U.S. Embassy in Rome, Barr requested “a conference room to meet high-level Italian security agents where he could be sure no one was listening in.” Inside that conference room, Barr and Durham reportedly listened a taped deposition from Joseph Mifsud, an Italian Ministry of Justice source told the Daily Beast. Mifsud is the professor who allegedly told Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos that he had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton. The reason this is so significant is because Papadopoulos spoke with Fox News where he suggested that Mifsud contacted him “as part of a setup orchestrated by intelligence agencies.” “So clearly, there was some sort of global or at least European radar on me while I was living in London and as soon as I was joining the Trump campaign — which not even the media knew at the time — I’m being introduced to Joseph Mifsud, in Rome, at a school that trains the CIA and the FBI. So, why I was introduced to Joseph Mifsud, and why this company introduced me to Joseph Mifsud, now that we know they’re connected to MI6 and the FBI, makes things even more suspicious…

New Survey Finds One-Third Of American Jews Hid Religion For Fear Of Anti-Semitism

Published

on

A new survey has discovered that one-third of American Jews have found ways to hide their religion — not wearing clothing or items that would identify them as Jewish — out of fear they would be victims of anti-Semitism. Check out the details from The Washington Examiner: In addition to finding that many fear the consequences of openly showing Jewish identity, the survey found almost 90% of respondents believe anti-Semitism is a problem in America, with over 80% saying it has increased in the past five years. The survey, released Wednesday and conducted by the American Jewish Committee, an advocacy group for Jews in the United States, found that worries about anti-Semitism’s rise in recent years was consistently high among all Jewish denominations, including the ultra-Orthodox, modern Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform. Twenty-five percent of Americans Jews said they sometimes “avoid certain places, events, or situations” out of safety concerns, and over 30% said they have refrained from “wearing, carrying, or displaying things that might help people identify them as Jews.” And while one-third said Jewish institutions with which they are affiliated have suffered anti-Semitic attacks or threats, few victims of anti-Semitic incidents report them to the police. As for ascribing blame, American Jews say the Republican Party is more responsible than the Democratic Party for the current state of anti-Semitism in the U.S., and over 70% disapproved of President Trump’s handling of anti-Semitism. Over 80% of respondents said the extreme political Right and, separately, extremism in the name of Islam threaten American Jews, while 64% said the same of the extreme political Left. Another interesting finding from the survey is that American Jews are also more inclined to see negative remarks or actions against Israel as being anti-Semitic. A whopping 84 percent believed the statement “Israel has no right to…
