    So, nothing the American people are hearing from the “fake news” main stream press is based in truth today. Russia had nothing to do with the leaking of Clinton or DNC emails – the election was not “hacked” on behalf of Donald Trump – it is Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton who are unfit for office and Trump nor Russia had anything to do with that reality.

      The Democrats favor Islamic Terrorism. Russia fights Islamic Terrorism. Trump fights Islamic Terrorism.

      This whole “red scare” crap is because the Islamic Terrorists now don’t have a friend in the WH due to Trump beating the Benghazi Witch.

      The New York Times will be renting out 8 floors of their building to make some badly needed money. It looks like we are headed in the right direction by ignoring them. The people decide what is FAKE NEWS, not the FAKE NEWS media. The liars are going dooooooown … the money pit. Slim (as in Carlos Slim) chance to come out of the hole they dug for themselves.

        Tonight CNN was running pure Sunni jihadi propaganda about Aleppo, replete with the usual actor kids with their hair tossled, their faces powdered with dust and fake blood from nonexistent injuries. The fake nurses dab away the fake blood. Once you’ve seen a few of these low budget productions, they all look the same. I’ve seen better makeup jobs in high school plays. Then CNN posted a banner that said – I kid you not – “Responsibility to Protect?” Samantha Power can’t even come up with a fresh line of BS. I really think Obama’s going to pull some major crap there on his way out.

    Good video, although a little long. I wish someone would produce a 2 minute video highlighting all the Left Wing Fake News stories of 2016. We could all share that and get people to actually watch it.

      • I hold it against his ability to DISCERN, which makes me question his other opinions. He can be late to the party but I wouldn’t get in the car with him anywhere because he doesn’t have a good sense of direction.

          The funny thing about Bill is he pretty much saw Trump coming years ago, Trump or someone like Trump. There’s a Bill Whittle speech that sundance linked to on the day Trump announced his candidacy last year, check it out on his post here:

          https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2015/06/16/trump-is-in-unapologetic-capitalism-vs-american-hating-socialism/

          Towards the end (around 14:40 in the video), Bill says he expects the next Republican president to come from pop culture. I’d say Trump was a big part of the pop culture for a long time, particularly in the 2000’s.

          Bill has a lot of NeverTrump friends. In his first video after the election, he even asked his viewers to give his NeverTrump friends a chance to, in a manner of speaking, repent and like Trump (fat chance on any who are still NeverTrump in my opinion). I think he just let himself be swayed at first by the opinion of his NeverTrump friends. He was late to the party, but better late than never.

    Yep, good one. How Newt puts it:

    • And, considering the recent news that Zuckerberg’s “FakeBook” will begin a propaganda campaign that uses ONLY leftists to evaluate and label news stories as “Fake” or “Authentic”, it’s plain to see that there is a concerted effort to control information exchanged over the internet. The Legacy Media might be obsolete, but that doesn’t mean the globalists haven’t found a new way to mesmerize their latest crop of “Useful Idiots.”

        IMO, it’s time for all free men and women all over the world to delete their fakebook accounts and move to another site. I’m sure there’s one out there somewhere that will happily host freedom. Leave fakebook to provide a safe space for the few collectivists that need someone to provide crayons, puppies and bedtime stories.

        • That is EXACTLY what they’re attempting. The MSM is slipping away into obsoletion, so they’re trying to get control of the “New Media” as it gels.

          They’re studies have showed that an increasing number of people have foregone watching TV in favor of spending MASSIVE amounts of time on the ‘net. Since this means they can no longer rely on the same old repetitive subliminal messaging, they have settled on turning our online lives into a digital version of “The Truman Show”

        We definitely need our own “fact checker” to combat these phony “fake checkers” like Politifact, Snopes, and the rest.

        “I laugh when people tell me about “politifact” being credible
        -PolitiFact is a project of the Tampa Bay Times.
        -The Tampa Bay Times has never endorsed a single Republican candidate for any presidential or state governor election in the history of the paper.
        -Out of the 9 years that PolitiFact has existed, for the first 6 years the PolitiFact editor was also the Tampa Bay Times Washington Bureau Chief, who stepped down in 2013 to just work on PolitiFact.
        -One of the five members of the current Tampa Bay Times Editorial Board (the group that chooses who the paper endorses) is a former “fact checker” for PolitiFact. It’s unclear whether she held both positions simultaneously, but she participated in the fact checking during the last election.
        -That same editor/fact checker (Molly Moorhead IIRC) wrote multiple PolitiFact articles in 2012/2013 which were proven to be incorrect and – you guessed it – they were slanted against the Republican featured in the article, claiming that they lied when they did not. Those articles are still available in their original (false) form on the PolitiFact website.”

    Wow, this David Brock interview is well worth listening to (at least the second half)!! I had to go back a 2nd time, it is this chock full of info! (The interview is good too, but the real nuggets are in the audio.)

    http://www.politico.com/story/2016/12/david-brock-trump-clinton-media-232562

    David Brock has numerous media organizations – all geared toward Democratic Party goals. His bio is one of political sabotage and media manipulation. Perhaps he’s most famous for Correct the Record. Or perhaps for sabotaging Bernie’s campaign. Or perhaps it’s something we don’t even know he was behind … He’s even more connected to the Democratic Party than his former boyfriend, Mr. Comet Pizza, who was voted as the 45th most influential person in DC!

    David’s very busy now, rebuilding the Democratic Party and designing mines and missles for its rebirth – as well as the sabotage of the Trump Administration. His 2 new organizations will probably figure heavily in these two goals: Bridge America and CREW.

    It’s much better to hear him talk about all this in his own words! He explains his version of how Hillary lost. He says the fake news did her in. And he’s hopping mad at Hillary’s staff for blowing it. Here’s his version (plus some other details he assumes listeners are familiar with).

    Remember that FB meeting of conservative journalists w/Zuckerberg last summer? (Drama Queen Glenn Beck led the dozen or so pack on their little pilgrimage to FB.)

    According to Brock, as a result of this meeting, FB agreed to take their human curators out of the news selection loop. FB agreed to use algorithms instead of humans. The idea was to remove some of the headline/story selection bias that conservatives were complaining about.

    Well, shortly after implementing algorithms, fake news stories started popping up. (Not so much fake, perhaps, as outlandish stories. Certainly not the usual pro-Hillary pablum anyway. Clickbait stories..

    The inclusion of these goofy clickbait stories then ruined FB’s advertising fee structure. Suddenly advertisers were paying too much for the quality content (and clicks) FB promised! Some scandals ensued and FB was embarrassed. This went on for months, and was reported on. It caused a lot of headaches for FB.

    Here’s the jaw-dropping part. Brock was infuriated with Brooklynn (Mook and gang) for not picking up the phone and telling Pelosi to tell Zuckerberg to fix it. “I assumed Brooklyn had done this. They hadn’t done it!” Brock was (and still is) fuming at what he views as the campaign’s “incompetence”.

    In other words, Brock expected Hillary’s staff to call any (Democrat) captain of industry and strong arm them into running their company to help her out! Never mind that such a company has a Board of Directors or shareholders to report to! Or customers whose entire marketing/sales plans might depend on the operations of the company!

    Over those months, what was originally FB’s goofy clickbait news stories became simply a business story drama as FB acted to shore up their reputation. While this was going on, the special designation “fake news” then became applied to a completely different class of stories, many having nothing whatsoever to do with FB clickbait!

    The new application of “fake news” was for stories the campaign didn’t like … in other words, stories not in support of Hillary’s candidacy. These stories already existed! What a handy way to discredit any story the Establishment didn’t like, and discredit any journalist or site they didn’t like! There was a bait and switch of the application of a label – and it was just too good an opportunity to pass up! This is the current-day “Fake News” Bill Whittle describes in his video.

    This is how the Hillary campaign attempted to inflict wholesale damage on inconvenient fact and opinion purveyors. “Fake news” was already a concept that was field tested many times over, as a free-standing propaganda entity, just like the CIA uses to undermine governments they want to topple. Shortly after the election is when the “propornot” website was circulated.

    So many thanks to cranky David Brock for shining light on this whole evolution of “Fake News”!

    But there’s more! Brock says that Hillary is now “free to do fundraising”. And he wants her to raise money for his many organizations!

    This interview is a gem, and gives a birdseye view on how Things Get Done in the Swamp!

  10. But, then Bill ends with the line about him seeing “the rebirth of a long dormant democracy…” rather than the rebirth of a long dormant Constitutionally based Representative Republic. Some may call me a nitpicker, I say language matters and it’s time to change this false narrative of “American democracy”.

      The United States is a federal republic and a constitutional representative democracy.

      Words have meaning and people like Bill need to articulate the founding principals carefully. As we know the Fake News never speak correctly and blur the lines about our founding principals. This whole election is an educational opportunity to state cleary what the founders intended by our form of government.

    The internet broke the news monopoly of Big Corporate Leftist Media, and they can’t stand it. The “fake news” meme is their attempt to poison the well of unfettered information, to drive the masses back to the corrupt MSM so they can control them. Sorry, the genie is out of the bottle, and it’s not going back.

    Psalm 35 (Douay)

    4 Let them be confounded and ashamed that seek after my soul. Let them be turned back and be confounded that devise against me.

    5 Let them become as dust before the wind : and let the angel of the Lord straiten them.

    6 Let their way become dark and slippery; and let the angel of the Lord pursue them.

    7 For without cause they have hidden their net for me unto destruction : without cause they have upbraided my soul.

    8 Let the snare which he knoweth not come upon him : and let the net which he hath hidden catch him : and let the net which he hath hidden catch him : and into that very snare let them fall.

  16. The Oregon couple who refused to bake a cake were fined a HUGE amount of money that nearly bankrupted them. That’s the bad news. The good news is that the money went into escrow awaiting a court appeal of the “fine,” levied by Brad Avakian, head of the Bureau of Labor and Industries. Avakian ran for Oregon Secy of State last month and LOST to a Republican, the only Oregon Republican to win a statewide office this year in this deep, deep Blue state!!!
    Did you hear that? A Republican Secy of State – who oversees elections!!!
