WATCH: Disgraced Journalist Brian Williams Erupts On AG, Dubs Him ‘Baghdad Bill Barr’

Not the most credible source, are you, Brian??

Brian Williams was once one of the most respected journalists in the game. Then, he was caught lying about a helicopter crash in Iraq in 2003 (more on that below).

Brian’s credibility went out the window, as did his time at NBC. If you’ll recall, Williams was demoted to MSNBC after a brief suspension.

On Thursday, after Attorney General Bill Barr officially exonerated President Trump from any “collusion” with Russia, Williams lashed out.

He noted, “It would harken back to a conflict decades ago, we would not be surprised if some headline writer somewhere came up with Baghdad Bill Barr for what we saw today.

Here’s why “Baghdad” Bill Barr is a big deal…

From Free Beacon:

The nickname is a reference to Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf or “Baghdad Bob,” the information minister for Saddam Hussein who lied to the public about the Iraq War. Barr made a statement and took questions Thursday morning before the release of the full report, and Williams expressed deep disappointment in Barr’s declaration there was not collusion.

[…]

He went on to repeat all the ways Barr said Mueller found “no collusion,” as if this were a strange thing for the attorney general to talk about when Mueller’s findings on collusion were a singular obsession of the media for the better part of two years.

More about Williams’ 2003 lie, per Vanity Fair:

Brian Williams has told the story multiple times. During a 2003 reporting trip in Iraq, Williams was riding in a Chinook helicopter that came under R.P.G. fire and required an emergency landing. He most recently told the story on Friday’s NBC Nightly News, during a segment in which he honored the sergeant major who Williams claimed saved his life.

With images of a damaged helicopter on screen, Brian ranted, “The story actually started with a terrible moment a dozen years back during the invasion of Iraq when the helicopter we were traveling in was forced down after being hit by an R.P.G. Our traveling NBC News team was rescued, surrounded and kept alive by an armor mechanized platoon from the U.S. Army 3rd Infantry.

[…]

Other soldiers who were actually on the helicopter that was hit and performed an emergency landing posted on Facebook that they didn’t recall Williams or his crew being onboard. They said that Williams arrived approximately an hour after the formation had already landed. Williams promptly acknowledged that they were right, and recanted.

In other words, Brian’s words hold no weight.

Maybe he’s trying to be edgy? Maybe he’s trying to remain in lockstep with his fellow progressives at MSNBC.

Who knows? Who cares, really?

The problem with America right now is people like Brian who are doing everything possible to tear down POTUS and his administration.

Largest County In Maryland Snubs ICE, Refuses To Cooperate With Them

Unbelievable.

Published

on

One of the most popular means the left has employed to help aid illegal immigrants in breaking United States immigration law is the “sanctuary city,” a place where these folks can hide without worry of being handed over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. Granted, such behavior is technically a violation of federal law, but that’s not stopping them from not cooperating. There are currently nine states, which includes New Jersey, California, and Illinois, that consider themselves “sanctuary states.” Many other cities around the country exist. Well, the largest county in Maryland is now joining those ranks as they are refusing to cooperate with ICE to help keep our nation safe and secure from those who seek to infiltrate our nation and abuse the systems we have in place. via The Daily Wire: On Monday, Montgomery County, Maryland’s largest county, officially joins the list. County Executive Marc Elrich will sign an executive order on Monday that will keep the area from cooperating with ICE, even though the policy has been unofficially on the books for some time. “The Promoting Community Trust Executive Order aims to reaffirm current county policy and improve community security by ensuring that immigrant and otherwise vulnerable communities can engage with county departments,” Elrich said in a statement provided to WTOP. The policy ensures that county agencies do not ask those who seek help about their immigration status, the outlet reported. Nor will these agencies cooperate with ICE. The county’s current police chief, Marcus Jones, says that the policy is already in action. According to Jones they have no direct contact with ICE on immigration issues, nor are they doing any operations with ICE in the county. Even if the police department has an illegal immigrant in custody, they will not be lending a hand to ICE…

Trump Destroys Washington Post For ‘Fake News’ About Battle With ‘The Squad’

This is why people love Trump.

Published

on

President Trump took to Twitter on Sunday and Monday to do what he does best and completely annihilate the Washington Post over “fake news” report about his battle against radical leftist congresswomen now known as “The Squad.” The Washington Post plastered as story on their front page with the headline, “A Twitter storm and its aftermath,” which takes a deep look at the aftermath of Trump’s “racist” tweets telling Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley to “go back” to their countries of origin if they hate America. However, it’s important to note that such a statement wouldn’t make a whole lot of sense seeing as how only Omar was born outside of the United States. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “The Washington Post Story, about my speech in North Carolina and tweet, with its phony sources who do not exist, is Fake News,” Trump tweeted Sunday. “The only thing people were talking about is the record setting crowd and the tremendous enthusiasm, far greater than the Democrats. You’ll see in 2020!” He followed that tweet by repeating a phrase that’s become one of his refrains about how the media treats him: “Presidential Harassment!” The president then once again emphasized why he has singled out the Squad: “I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country. They should apologize to America (and Israel) for the horrible (hateful) things they have said. They are destroying the Democrat Party, but are weak & insecure people who can never destroy our great Nation!” On Monday, the president tweeted the following: “The Amazon Washington Post front page story yesterday was total Fake News. They said ‘Advisors wrote new talking points and handed him reams of opposition research on the four Congresswomen.’ Now really, does that sound like…
