What CNN Analyst Said About Trump Bringing Home North Korean Hostages Proves It’s the End Times

The end is nigh…

Ever since Donald Trump snagged a huge victory over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, there has been a war going on between our new commander-in-cheif and the mainstream media, particularly CNN.

The folks who work for the network have seemingly made it their life’s ambition to harass, belittle, and sling mud at Trump, his administration, and his family, hoping beyond hope that some sort of scandal is uncovered and his presidency comes to an abrupt end.

As a result of this treatment, Trump has slammed CNN as being “fake news” — a reputation they’ve earned by reporting only half the facts the majority of the time — destroying them regularly on Twitter, and even tossing a few of their reporters out during press conferences.

Given how tumultuous the relationship between these two has been, it’s utterly astounding to see the comments coming from CNN global analyst David Rohde who offered the President praise for getting our hostages back from North Korea.

Rohde pointed out how often analysts criticize the president, and that if they do that, they should recognize when the president does good things.

โ€œLook, the president deserves credit. He used a lot of his tough rhetoric, and for whatever reason Kim Jong-Un is now talking to him. So I want to praise him for what we have so far on North Koreaโ€ Rohde said.

โ€œI want to be fair, we all criticize Trump sometimes. You know, he has done well. Itโ€™s wonderful these three people have been released today.โ€

Perhaps part of the reason Rohde is so quick to praise Trump for getting these hostages back is because he has first hand experience of what being in that sort of situation is like.

In 2008, Rohde, his interpreter, and his driver were all kidnapped in Afghanistan while he was there writing a book about U.S. involvement in the country. They were on their way to an interview with a Taliban commander, but never arrived at their destination.

It’s believed they were held by the Jalaluddin Haqqani, who is a warlord and former Mujahideen fighter for seven months before they escaped. Rohde, along with his driver, managed to sneak past the guards who were asleep and climbed over a 10-foot-wall.

Rhode isn’t the only member of CNN giving props to Trump. Chris Cuomo also said this moment would be the highlight of the president’s administration, a compliment that likely wasn’t easy to make.

If only the civility from the media would last.

Trouble In Paradise? Ilhan Omar Just Got Super Bad News About Her District

Uh, oh Spaghetti-Os!

Published

on

No one’s favorite congresswoman, Rep. Ilhan Omar, who has earned a reputation as an anti-Semite for her negative comments toward Israel and Jewish people, just got some very bad news about her district. According to a new report from financial website, 24/7 Wall Street, Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District is the worst congressional district in the entire country for black people. Uh oh. That’s not going to look too good on the progressive candidate checklist, is it? via TheBlaze: Researchers studied several key metrics using data from the U.S. Census Bureau: cost of living-adjusted median household income, unemployment and poverty rates, educational attainment, and homeownership rates. The data showed that Omar’s district has the greatest socioeconomic disparities between black and white Americans of any congressional district in the U.S. “Black area residents are about four times more likely to live below the poverty line than white residents and three times more likely to be unemployed. Disparate outcomes along racial lines in the district are largely the legacy of historic racism,” the study said. “Minneapolis is one of several Midwestern cities that enacted restrictive housing covenants and exclusionary zoning policies in the early 20th century. These policies impact residential patterns to this day.” Here’s the real kicker that’ll send liberals into hysterics. Each of the five worst districts for black Americans is represented by a Democrat. It actually gets worse than that. As it turns out, 25 out of 30 the worst congressional districts for blacks are run by liberals. Ouch. That pretty much explodes the narrative that Democrats are the party of the poor and marginalized, doesn’t it? Adding insult to injury, the vast majority of the nation’s most segregated cities are located within these districts. So, tell us again, Mr. Liberal, why in the world would we want you to…

Mayor Gets Pulverized After Posting Ridiculously Thoughtless Tweet In Wake Of Portland Violence

Oh look. Nero playing the fiddle why Rome burns.

Published

Just hours after violent rioting exploded in the city of Portland, Oregon, Mayor Ted Wheeler posted the most oblivious photograph ever to the Internet, featuring him and his wife, peacefully strolling through the city hand-in-hand as if nothing is going down in his burned out burg. This has led to massive pushback from folks all across the political spectrum, with many calling for Wheeler to step down from office. Honestly, that might not be a bad idea, seeing as how he’s done nothing to put radical left-wing group Antifa in check. via Daily Wire: https://twitter.com/tedwheeler/status/1163209418487394305 “Saturdays in Portland,” however, are a lot different. The day before Mayor Ted Wheeler’s post, Antifa activists targeted journalists and went after protesters, some of whom were members of the right-wing Proud Boys. Below is some of the ugly footage posted by journalist and Quilette editor Andy Ngo and others which has been conveniently ignored by Mr. Wheeler: https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162833952190582785 https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162901699318517761 https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162828409367515139 https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162844384141832192 The tweet from Mayor Wheeler, unsurprisingly, was ripped online for its oblivious nature. Twitter users, some claiming to live in Portland, pointed to the violent protesting in the city and Portland’s severe homelessness crisis. According to Portland Monthly, 2018 figures estimated 14,476 homeless people reside in the city. https://twitter.com/JNCassavetes/status/1163279121847222272 https://twitter.com/jtLOL/status/1163428604581220354 https://twitter.com/RedTails944/status/1163305483018465281 https://twitter.com/NeilAxelrod/status/1163309474125361152 https://twitter.com/belleofva/status/1163227272930873345 Seems Mayor Wheeler is just a tad bit out of touch with what’s happening in his city. Homelessness, massive violence and rioting, civil unrest. Hardly seems like an ideal time to post a picture of a peaceful stroll through the city. It’s like Nero watching Rome burn and playing the fiddle. The city could definitely use new leadership, perhaps someone with a more sensible approach to dealing with this sort of thing?
