Tucker Carlson recently pointed out the hypocrisy surrounding mainstream media’s coverage of the Justin Trudeau blackface scandal by comparing the way CNN’s Don Lemon handled the matter.

On Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News Tucker spent no time singling out CNN’s Don Lemon in a clip where it showed how the liberal Lemon host covered Trudeau’s apology by only redirecting the issue as a way to attack President Trump, Tucker even brought up an older clip from Oct 2018 of Don Lemon talking about the Kelly controversy.

“Megyn is 47 years old, she’s our age. There has never been a time in her 47 years that blackface has been acceptable… I wonder how much diversity she has on her staff. I don’t know, I’m not there but I would imagine there is not a lot,” “This is what people of the larger culture don’t understand about racism and about privilege.”

– Don Lemon

Now compare this to what Lemon said about the Prime Minister…

“He says he didn’t think it was racist at the time, now he knows better,”

“Think about it however you want to think about it. When someone apologizes, wow, we don’t often see that here. Especially a world leader who’s saying, ‘I should have known better and I’m sorry.’”

– Don Lemon

Double Standards Much?

Recently unless you have had your internet and TV turned off you would have seen that it was revealed that the Canadian prime minister was caught up in his own “blackface” scandal of which he attempted to apologize during a news conference in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Though Tucker Carlson (and nor did most of the right on the internet) buy this apology. As its more under the impression that Trudeau didn’t actually take responsibility but rather “transferred it” by blaming privilege.

 “He’s moving responsibility for what he did from himself to the rest of us… it’s not a confession, it’s a justification and the only people dumb enough to buy it are the news media, of course. The dumbest people in the world,”

“Or could it be that because Justin Trudeau is a powerful leader on the left, he gets a pass no matter what he does? I think you know the answer,”

“What a difference a year makes… Megyn Kelly never wore blackface, she wouldn’t do that. She’s not Justin Trudeau,”

“She just made the mistake of not seeming quite offended enough in a TV segment about certain Halloween costumes.”

– Tucker Carlson

Remember that former Fox News host Megyn Kelly was FIRED from NBC News for simply suggesting blackface could sometimes be OK when used for a costume.

So the Real Question is: Should Trudeau be Fired too?

Trump demands resignations over Kavanaugh story at New Mexico rally

“I call for the resignation of everybody at The New York Times involved in the Kavanaugh smear story, and while you’re at it, the Russian witch hunt hoax, which is just as phony a story,” the president said. “They’ve taken the old Grey Lady, so prestigious, and broken her down, destroyed her virtue, and ruined her reputation. She can never See More recover, and will never return to greatness under current management. The Times is dead, long live the New York Times.”

#RUSSIAGATE: TRUTH, POST-TRUTH OR DAMNED LIES?

Everybody hates fake news, right?

Then again, one man’s fake news is another man’s infallible truth.

So how to discern truth from falsehood, in the foaming churning sea of ‘narratives’ and ‘counter-narratives?’

Ever since the nihilistic professors of chaos undermined public discourse and the very foundations of language, by the ‘revolution’ of postmodernist nihilism, where everybody has a right to their own opinions and reality is whatever you make of it, the risk that facts, truth, and history would be finally reduced to mere ‘narratives’ has always loomed menacingly upon the horizon. And although the Party of Truth has often striven valiantly against the Party of Feelz, the threat of a purely subjective and emotional approach to the world has made significant inroads.

This being so, it’s a truly extraordinary sight to see those who actually invented ‘post-truth’ and ‘alternative facts’ consistently railing against these very same things. The supposedly impossible election of President Donald J. Trump in November 2016 left the liberal media and the anxious elites scrambling for a way to discredit the legitimately elected President of the United States of America.

In such a context, where the noonday sun of populist truth is menaced by the midnight gloom of aristocratic falsehood, and the dusk of integrity grimly heralds forth the dawn of MSM lies, it’s comforting to remember how we’ve been here before.

Many, many times.

#WALKAWAY from The Left DON’T #WalkAway From the GOP:

Contentment is the Enemy of The Right

Every day I hear these common things that people say:

No more donkey or elephants… We need a lion

or

The Republican Party is full of people who are ideologically opposed to Trump and what he represents and stands for. I would classify the majority of them as Democrat-lite. I do not identify as Republican, but as Conservative Independent. I just vote Republican because that’s where the people run for office that I most agree with. I wish Trump could break away and start a real rightist party. I almost think he has the support to pull it off. Don’t know. What I do know is that many of us are fed up with the GOP as it currently exists. Not sure what the alternative is.

BUT THAT IS NOT THE ANSWER

Your REAL response to a GOP/Republican Party that is NOT

working the way you want it to work its to START BEING ACTIVE in the GOP!!!

The GOP is what you make it!

You have the POWER to form and shape the Republican party to the way it needs to be, but going rogue and starting another party is what gets us into this mess in the first place.

Look at the Democrats even though they have transitioned into the socialist-communist shithole of a party they are still the Democrats, why because the individuals that changed that party did not just #WalkAway they changed it into the force of evil DEMONcRATS that they wanted it to be.

They remained strong because they, unlike the Republicans, are not riddled with a half a dozen fractions trying to pull away from the party and weaken it!

Thus the Democrats remain strong they remain in power, and when NOT in Power they push HARD to regain control.

If you feel content, you’re satisfied and happy. Often Republicans fall victim with being pleased and satisfied (feeling content) or feeling that those in power are making us feel happy and at peace with things. But the people and forces on the RIGHT need to get off cloud 9 and take a lesson from the Democrats, who NEVER are Content. We have to fight and keep control constantly.

Remember elections come EVERY 2 Years, and the day after election day, even if it is a Victory its ONLY THE BEGINNING of the next battle.

SO to those that want this 3rd party extra Trump party BS the message is clear, you need to buck up and start joining the GOP start with your local areas and start changing it from within.

When the Log Cabin Republicans said they didn’t have a voice in the GOP, they knew that INCLUSION and activism from within the party creates Equality.

Inclusion wins when there is Change From Within!

EVERY major party has people who are ideologically opposed to others in power, this will NEVER stop, but we cannot just jump ship every time that major political force is not doing what we think it should.

Its why we have to join in the change of that party, and together we can drown the voices that hurt our Grand Old Party.

I have said it time and time again,

WE make the GOP

These people get it:

https://www.gop.com/we-are-the-gop/

If the Democrat’s get back into power, they will not only come after Trump and all the other Republicans…they will come after citizens who disagree with them.

Their ultimate goal is to control every facet of life, and to squash any type of freedom of speech.

A vote for Democrats now days is a vote for tyranny.

Just look at their websites, Facebook pages…they are all pressing for open borders, Ultra Liberal policies, confiscation of all firearms, all to encourage a lawless society so they can set up a Socialist government that does away with the Constitution.

Right now…we are the only ones standing in their way.

We must vote for Republicans…because the Democratic party no longer stands for “We The People” – Mark A. Rodriguez @markarodrig

A California state appeals court has thrown out the sole conviction against an immigrant who fatally shot Steinle on the San Francisco waterfront in 2015.

The 1st District Court of Appeal on Friday, Aug. 30, 2019, overturned a gun conviction against Garcia-Zarate because the judge failed to instruct the jury on one of his defenses.

This comes after he accused a judge of failing to tell the jury it’s not a crime to “momentarily” have a gun. The 46-year-old claims he found the firearm on a San Francisco pier, picked it up, and it “accidentally” went off.

The bullet then ricocheted off a concrete-walkway, before fatally striking Steinle. Garcia-Zarate then threw the gun into the bay. He was deported five times before Steinle’s death, sparking a nationwide debate over sanctuary city policies. Earlier Friday, an appeals court reversed Jose Inez Garcia-Zarate’s 2017 conviction for possession of a firearm by a felon.

DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE HIS STORY?

Would He had been acquitted if he was a LEGAL California citizen?

James Comey bruised by inspector general’s ‘damning’ report — but he should prepare for worse, critics warn

The reputation of James Comey took a hit Thursday with the release of a scathing inspector general’s report on his handling of memos about contacts with President Trump. However, the fired former FBI director should be wary of what Connecticut federal prosecutor John Durham may find in his probe into the origins of the Russia See More investigation, critics warn. “Obviously, today was a bad day for James Comey,” said Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C. and chairman of the influential House Freedom Caucus, on “Hannity.” He added it was unbelievable that Comey was nonetheless going on Twitter, seeking apologies from his detractors.

Republicans on Capitol Hill warned the inspector general’s report could be only the start of a series of blows to the reputations of key law enforcement figures. The inspector general report said Comey violated bureau policies by drafting, leaking and retaining memos documenting private discussions with President Trump. The Justice Department’s official watchdog concluded that the memos Comey kept were, in fact, “official FBI records,” and said he set a “dangerous example” with his actions.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s own account was hacked, used to post vulgar messages
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey appears to have been hacked on his own platform, with several offensive tweets posted to his account.

The tweets, posted Friday and deleted within minutes, included the use of the N-word, other vulgar comments, and one message claiming there was a bomb at Twitter’s headquarters.

Other tweets gave shoutouts to people, and pushed the hashtag “#ChucklingSquad” — the name of an online chat, according to The Daily Beast.
Another tweet read: “Hitler is innocent go follow @taytaylov3r if you want every Jew gassed.” The account also retweeted another Twitter user who wrote, “Nazi Germany did nothing wrong.”
@TwitterComms

We’re aware that @jack was compromised and investigating what happened.
Twitter released a brief statement saying, “We’re aware that @jack was compromised and investigating what happened.”
Dorsey’s compromised account immediately caused panic among some on the platform, stirring worry that President Trump’s account could also be hacked.

Video from 2005 raid on Jeffrey Epstein’s Palm Beach mansion showed nude images of young women

Video of a 2005 police raid of Jeffrey Epstein’s Palm Beach, Fla., mansion reveals a home partially decorated with illicit photos and imagery of young women. Inside the home, the video shows a wall covered in artsy nude photos of men and women, a painting of a nude woman lying on her back and a photo of a naked woman – reportedly Epstein’s ex-girlfriend and alleged madam, Ghislaine Maxwell – lying on a sandy beach. Police also discovered a green massage table leaning against a wall under framed photos of Epstein, who was accused of molesting dozens of girls at the mansion.
By 2006, Palm Beach investigators had interviewed more than 30 young women – some of whom were minors at the time of the alleged crimes. In the end, prosecutors and Epstein’s lawyers negotiated a then-secret plea deal which led Epstein to serve just 13 months in jail under work-release privileges, allowing him to visit his office six days a week.

Cadbury ridiculed over new chocolate bar meant to promote diversity

The British confectionery giant Cadbury faced backlash on social media for a new candy bar introduced in India that features four types of chocolate — dark, blended, milk and white — to promote diversity. “This is as absurd as Kendall Jenner fighting police brutality with a Pepsi,” tweeted legal analyst Imani Gandy. “Congratulations to Cadbury for solving racism,” wrote restaurant critic Tejal Rao. Cadbury rolled out the multi-flavored chocolate bars Aug. 15 — teaming up with the global advertising agency Ogilvy — to celebrate India’s Independence Day. – Reported by the New York Post

New Border wall in ‘smuggler’s gulch’ is working according to CBP agents

Justin De La Torre stated a steep, open canyon between San Diego and Tijuana has been used for decades by immigrants to smuggle drugs into the U.S. from Mexico.

“It has an anti-climb feature, it’s made of steel, it also has a concrete base that prevents digging from underneath, and now we’re able to control this area with the new infrastructure.”

According to California Border Patrol agents, new infrastructure in an area known as “smuggler’s gulch” is making a difference.

President Trump moved to replace the fencing along the San Diego border earlier this year as his administration sped up moves to build taller, stronger border reinforcement.

“This is a smart, strategic, see-through steel barrier — not just a simple concrete wall,”

said the president.

“It will be deployed in the areas identified by border agents as having the greatest need, and as these agents will tell you, where walls go up, illegal crossings go way down.”

Numerous wall construction projects are underway across the Southwest border, including projects in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. — CBP (@CBP) August 25, 2019

MSNBC’s O’Donnell retracts unverified Trump-Russia story, makes on-air apology

MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell on Wednesday night retracted a story that directly tied President Trump’s finances to Russia and made an on-air apology for running the unverified report. “Last night on this show, I discussed information that wasn’t ready for reporting,” O’Donnell said. “I repeated statements a single source told me about the president’s finances and loan documents with Deutsche Bank. Saying ‘if true’ — as I discussed the information — was simply not good enough. I did not go through the rigorous verification and standards process here at MSNBC before repeating what I heard from my source. Had it gone through that process, I would not have been permitted to report it. I should not have said it on-air or posted it on Twitter. I was wrong to do so.”

High-profile Democrats fail to qualify for primary debates in September

Several struggling Democratic presidential candidates have failed to qualify for the next round of primary debates scheduled in September. Those missing the cut include U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado, billionaire climate-change activist Tom Steyer, Montana Gov. Steve Bullock and self-help guru Marianne Williamson. To appear on stage in Houston next month, they had to hit 2 percent in at least four approved public opinion polls while securing 130,000 unique donors.

Hours ahead of a midnight Wednesday deadline to qualify, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York announced she was dropping out of the race. In an interview on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Gabbard complained that the Democratic National Committee lacks “transparency” in the debate qualification process.

Omar hit with FEC complaint, accused of paying alleged lover’s travel expenses with campaign funds

The conservative, Virginia-based National Legal and Policy Center filed a complaint against Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) on Wednesday, alleging that the lawmaker used campaign funds to illegally reimburse her purported paramour for personal travel expenses. The complaint also charges that Omar failed to itemize travel reimbursements as required by the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 — and that the travel expenses increased during the same month that Omar’s alleged affair with married Washington, D.C., political consultant Tim Mynett, 38, heated up. Omar has denied that she had an affair with Mynett, and her attorneys have dismissed the FEC complaint as a baseless “political ploy.”

Dorian takes aim at Florida

Hurricane Dorian moved out over open waters early Thursday after doing limited damage in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, and forecasters warn it could hit Florida over the weekend. The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Dorian was expected to strengthen into a dangerous Category 3 hurricane as it stayed well to the east of the southeastern and central Bahamas over the next two days. The forecast called for the storm to pass near or over the northern Bahamas on Saturday and close in on Florida by Sunday afternoon.

DHS bars Dem staffers from visiting border facilities after ‘rude’ and ‘disruptive’ behavior

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has barred Democratic staffers from the House Oversight Committee from visiting Customs and Border Protection (CBP) facilities at the U.S.-Mexico border as part of a planned trip this week after committee staff allegedly were “disruptive” and refused to follow instructions during their last trip. Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., had sent his staff to visit border facilities for “oversight inspections” last week and planned to send staff again to view Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and CBP centers.
DHS has revoked access to CBP facilities for the upcoming visit, citing staff behavior that “interfered” with law enforcement operations — including refusing to leave one site after their scheduled window, skipping some tours and being “rude” to officers. A DHS official said that ICE visits will still be allowed the rest of this week, but with a two-hour time limit.

Uber driver bitten in Georgia attack that left car damaged, woman arrested

A Georgia woman was arrested after police say she was caught on camera attacking an Uber driver — by biting him and trying to damage his car.

Tasheena Campbell, 26, was taken into custody Aug. 20 — days after the incident in which she allegedly attacked driver Yasser Hadi in midtown Atlanta on Aug. 18.

A video uploaded to Twitter of the attacks begins with a woman — identified by WAGA as Campbell — sitting on the hood of a car, breaking off a windshield wiper. Bystanders and Hadi encourage her to stop, before the woman throws a punch at Hadi.

The woman hops off the car and enters the vehicle through the driver-side door while Hadi tries to stop her. “Get out my car!” he shouts, as he pulls the woman out to the ground. The woman tries punching the Uber driver — before biting him, prompting him to scream.

Tasheena Campbell, 26, was charged with battery and criminal trespass following the incident. It’s unclear what sparked the altercation. Hadi said Campbell appeared out of nowhere and randomly attacked him.

“She’s acting weird, she’s acting wild, and she’s on the car hitting it, telling me I need to die, to kill me,” Hadi told WAGA of the encounter. “The pain, I said, “God, just let her take my flesh, I don’t care. I want her to go away from me.”

The Uber driver said the situation is “horrible.”

“She’s hit me in my job, my health and my financial pocket money, it’s hard,” said Hadi, noting he doesn’t have insurance. “I’m in a bad situation. I wish people see this and help.” Campbell was arrested and charged with battery and criminal trespass, according to online records from the Fulton County Jail. She was still in custody as of Thursday.

Kentucky mother Andrea Knabel, a volunteer who searches for missing people, reported missing

A Kentucky mother of two who searches for missing people has now seemingly disappeared herself.

Andrea Knabel, 37, was last seen leaving a relative’s home in the Audubon Park neighborhood of Louisville around 1 a.m. on Aug. 13, according to Missing in America, the organization for which she volunteers.

Around 1:30 a.m., she used her cellphone to call her friend and ask for a ride, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported. Several security cameras are located in the neighborhood, but many weren’t active when she was in the area.

A friend of Knabel’s told WAVE the single mother “was upset and she needed a ride” — and was too trusting of other people.

“Obviously she was trying to get ahold of people, maybe she got in the car with the wrong person,” said Maricia Kidd, who has known Knabel for 30 years. She noted Knabel’s car was recently totaled in a hit-and-run accident and said she’d been laid off at work.

“Here she is helping to locate people and she comes up missing herself,” said Tracy Leonard, a private investigator and friend of Knabel. “She’s just a super great girl. She helped me locate a missing teen about a year and a half ago.”

The group’s founder, Nancy Schaefer Smith, said that Knabel, a “dedicated member” of Missing in America, is the first volunteer ever to disappear like this.

“She is loved by so many people,” Smith told the Courier-Journal. “It’s all hands on deck. She’s my girl…We’re going to find her.”

Knabel is described as a white female with light brown hair. She weighs between 190 to 200 pounds and is around 5 feet 7 inches tall. She was last seen wearing a “light color tank top and white shorts.”

Anyone with information is urged to contact Leonard at 502-618-9337 or Smith at 502-500-3026, or the Louisville Metro Police at 502-574-5673.

Pennsylvania man’s ‘gunlike hand gesture’ toward neighbor was a crime, court rules

A Pennsylvania court ruled Tuesday that making a “gunlike hand gesture” is a crime after a man-made the hand motion during an argument with his neighbor — an act which reportedly made several nearby residents nervous and prompted a call to police.

Stephen Kirchner, 64, made the gesture toward his neighbor in Manor Township in June 2018, according to surveillance video. Kirchner, walking alongside a female neighbor, “stopped, made eye contact with [the male neighbor] and then made a hand gesture at him imitating the firing and recoiling of a gun,” according to court documents.

The action made one neighbor feel “extremely threatened” and he called 911. Another neighbor said she saw Kirchner “put his finger up like he was going to shoot [the neighbor]”, “insecure,” prompting her to call 911.

Kirchner and the female neighbor Kirchner had been walking with previously had issues and confrontations, sparking the neighbor to install six security cameras on his property. At the time of the incident in 2018, the female neighbor had a “no contact” order against the neighbor who felt threatened, court documents indicate.

Kirchner was issued a citation for disorderly conduct following the incident. He said in district court he made the “gunlike” gesture after his neighbor gave him “the finger with both hands.”
The 64-year-old was found guilty, but appealed, arguing the hand gesture didn’t “create a hazardous or physically offensive condition.” Kirchner said he didn’t mean to cause public alarm, and there wasn’t really any harm done to the neighbor or others.

On Tuesday, however, the Superior Court of Pennsylvania found the gesture “served no legitimate purpose, and recklessly risked provoking a dangerous altercation.”
Kirchner was ordered to pay a $100 fine and court costs.
