CNN freaks out over latest Trump tweet.

CNN is begging its viewers to not believe Trump’s tweets, and simply buy in to the fact that (as Wolf Blitzer declared on air): “We are not the enemy of the American people. We love the American people.”

Iraq WMD, Libya, Syria, Ukraine coup, 2016 election polls…no thanks Wolf, I think we will have to go wth Trump on this one, you guys over at CNN are the biggest enemy.

President Trump’s latest casual criticism of the American mainstream media was apparently a bridge too far for CNN Host Wolf Blitzer. In one of the most self-congratulatory segments of cable news in recent memory, Blitzer and CNN analyst David Gregory took turns griping about Trump and the culture of anti-media hostility that Trump has supposedly created (even though it existed long before he arrived, and is much more closely linked to the media’s own inept coverage).

Furious about the media’s skeptical coverage of his meeting with Kim Jong Un, Trump fired off a tweet earlier this week where he declared that “our country’s biggest enemy is the Fake News so easily promulgated by fools!”

Gregory got the conversation going when he blasted Trump for being unoriginal and accused him of trying to “outdo Nixon”. No president gets along with the media, but most of Trump’s predecessors at least adhered to a sense of decorum, Gregory exclaimed. Also notice how there’s a woman on the panel who tries to speak up several times but is each time drowned out by one of her male colleagues.

Wolf chimed in, sounding indignant about the shift in public opinion concerning CNN and its coverage.

“Everybody’s always criticizing us and not happy with our coverage whether it was President Clinton or President Bush or President – they’re all criticized,” Blitzer said.

The fact that so many Americans distrust the media is “a really, really awful situation,” he added. The fact that there’s China, Russia, North Korea, Iran and so many other countries that are geopolitical adversaries of the US, but the people see the US media as the enemy, just isn’t right,” Wolf whined.

“We are not the enemy of the American people. We love the American people.”

Maybe, if the media wants to win back the trust of the American public, it should find a way to shed its sanctimonious tone, and start working on finding a new strategy for conveying the news rather than the self-righteous virtue signaling that’s popular over at CNN.

The media thought they were too big to take down. How many millions are walking away, taking the advertising revenue with them?

Spoken like a true cult member. Blitzer, a Zionist duel Israeli-US citizen and former head of AIPAC, says “We love the American people.” Notice he did not say, ”I am an American too.” His comment translated into reality is “We love the debt slaves who go die for Israel in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Niger, Sudan, ………….while we laugh at them.”

“We love the American people” says arch-Talmudo-Satanist, Wolf Blitzkrieg.
Who is “We”?

Note that Wolfy does not say: “We ARE the American people.”
I can only assume that Wolfy ‘loves the American people’ …in an (Edward) Bernays [sic] sauce.

“The fact that there’s China, Russia, North Korea, Iran and so many other
countries that are geopolitical adversaries of the US, but the people
see the US media as the enemy, just isn’t right,” Wolf Blitzer.
The fact that Wolfy omitted Israel is cause for concern…. and lynching.

Just a thought.
“Maybe, if the media wants to win back the trust of the American public,……………….”.

Maybe, if the media wants to win back the trust of the American public, we should go back to reporting newsworthy events,without ‘bulking’ them with our own ill informed opinions. We could even try to
be honest, in very sense of the word. It may well be the way forward.

As this article well points out: “Iraq WMD, Libya, Syria, Ukraine coup, 2016 election polls…” just why again should we trust the MSM? And as commenters have pointed out, silence about the hijacking of US foreign (and national policy re: censorship of BDS contra to Bill of Rights) by Israel and the neoconservative ideologues.

Wolf Blitzer! The CNN’s own version of Julius Streicher, a “noble” man whos was decorated after WWII, with a rope around his neck at a ceremony in Nüremberg.

That was a more somber tweet by Trump than his usual and he should remember what he wrote. His and the US citizenry’s enemies aren’t other countries following a different course or defending their sovereignty, but the corporate oligarchy of the empire whose mouthpieces the MSM are.

Of course, he also wrote a number of reasonable tweets about Syria in 2013, but he has forgotten them by now…

Good Old Wolf Blitzer. He is excellent in lining up his group who are all rehearsed and ready to try to out do each other in supporting Wolfie”s anti-Russian diatribes! Why doesn”t CNN have speakers with more than Wolfie”s well rehearsed views. I suggest that Santa ban Blitzer ( wolfie) from his reindeer corral. Wolfie is King of Fake News! And he speaks without taking a breath!

Of course, Trump is right. He always is. But he doesn’t go far enough, CNN isn’t just fake news. It’s much worse than that. CNN is diabolical, vindictive, devious, deceptive, indeed, the slime-balls are fully intent upon bringing down the republic. CNN needs disbanding, plain and simple. Prosecution? Sure, why not. Put Wolfe Blitzer in a carnival game joint, let him sell little yellow duckies to happy-go-luckie carnival attendees. Or jail.

Why does Alex accuse the Liberal left from writing BS? I am off-the-chart Liberal. It is the Corporate owned Media representing the 1% that provides us the BS we see in the MSM. Ales should know better.

Blitzer is a member of AIPAC, represents Israel as well as Corporate America. He personifies the MSM…
Lets leave ignorant Trump out of it please.

World War I Homage – A Triumph of Lies and Platitudes

The unilateral, lawless imperialism that engendered World War I and 20 years later World War II is still alive and dangerously vigorous.

Published

on

Authored by Finian Cunningham via Strategic Culture:


World leaders gathered in Paris on Sunday under the Arc de Triomphe to mark the centennial anniversary ending World War I. In an absurd way, the Napoleon-era arc was a fitting venue – because the ceremony and the rhetoric from President Emmanuel Macron was a “triumph” of lies and platitudes.

Among the estimated 70 international leaders were US President Trump and Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, each sitting on either side of Macron and his wife. German Chancellor Angela Merkel was also given pride of place beside the French president.

Macron’s address to the dignitaries was supposed to be a call for international multilateralism. He urged a “brotherhood” for the cause of world peace. He also made a pointed rebuke of “nationalism” as posing a danger to peace – a remark which seemed aimed at Donald Trump who recently boasted of his politics with that very word.

But, ironically, everything about the ceremony and Macron’s speech resonated with jingoistic French nationalism, not his avowed multinationalism. As the politicians sat under the Arc de Triomphe, Macron walked around its circular esplanade in a salute to assembled French military forces bearing assault rifles and bayonets. The French anthem – The Marseillaise – was played twice, once by an army brass band, the second time sung by an army choir. There was also a military plane flyover displaying the blue, red and white tricolor of the French national flag.

In his speech, Macron talked about soldiers coming from all over the world to “die for France” during the 1914-18 Great War. He even said at one point that the war was fought for “the vision of France” and its “universal values”.

This was fluent drivel, French-style. No wonder Russia’s Putin momentarily gave a look of boredom as Macron waxed lyrical.

The speechifying and commemoration was completely detached from current realities of conflict and international tensions.

Among the “brotherhood” whom Macron was appealing to were Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu whose military forces continue to bomb and slaughter Palestinian civilians in illegally occupied territory. Also present was Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko whose armed militias continue to terrorize the people of eastern Ukraine with the blatant objective of instigating a war between the US-led NATO alliance and Russia.

Listening to Macron one would think that World War I erupted mysteriously from no specific cause and that an estimated 10 million soldiers were all killed in heroic battles for noble principles.

There was, of course, no mention by Macron of imperialist warmongering and the barbaric sacrifice of humans as slaves in the service of national capitalist power interests.

Grotesquely, as the world leaders donned solemn faces and mouthed pious platitudes for peace, the whole occasion was a triumph in burying reality and the ongoing causes of wars, as well as whitewashing the very culprits responsible for wars. Among the war criminals wearing a mournful black suit was former French President Nicolas Sarkozy who launched the NATO blitzkrieg on Libya in 2011.

While the empty, self-indulgent rhetoric was ringing out, one couldn’t help but recall some of the most glaring contemporary contradictions that were blocked out with awesome Orwellian efficiency.

Just this week, reports emerged of the horrific civilian death toll from the American air force bombing the Syrian city of Raqqa. The city was razed to the ground by US air strikes last year – supposedly to defeat the ISIS terror group. Some 8,000 bodies of civilians, mainly women and children, have now been recovered by Syrian government forces. And that’s only from clearing away a tiny area of rubble for the whole city.

What the Americans did in Raqqa was a monumental war crime, all the more criminal because US forces, along with their NATO partners Britain and France, are illegally present in and assaulting sovereign Syrian territory.

As Macron was telling world leaders about “the vision of France”, hundreds were being killed in Yemen in a battle to strangle the entire population by taking the port city of Hodeida. The genocidal war on that country – which is putting up to 16 million people at risk from starvation – has been fully backed by France, the US and Britain, from their supply of warplanes and bombs to the Saudi and Emirati aggressive forces.

We could mention other specific conflicts where the culprits are clearly identified. For example, the multi-million-dollar support from Washington for the Azov Battalion and other Neo-Nazi militias in Ukraine, which openly emulate the genocidal conduct of Hitler’s Third Reich to exterminate ethnic Russians.

We could mention how US-led NATO forces continue to expand towards Russian territory with outrageous provocation. The mounting earlier this month of the biggest-ever NATO war drills since the Cold War in the Arctic region adjacent to Russia’s northern border was a brazen threat of rehearsing invasion. The announced tearing up of yet another nuclear arms control treaty unilaterally by Washington is a reckless undermining of global security.

Washington threatens China with naval forces marauding near Beijing’s maritime territory in the South China Sea. Washington blockades Iran with illegal economic warfare and openly agitates for regime change. Washington declares Venezuela, Nicaragua and Cuba a “troika of tyranny” and reserves the right to threaten each of these countries with military invasion at any time.

Meanwhile, this weekend, Russia hosted peace talks in Moscow between the warring parties of Afghanistan. It was seen as a major breakthrough in trying to bring peace to the Central Asia country which has been wracked by 17 years of violence since US forces began their ongoing military occupation – allegedly to defeat terrorism.

Elsewhere, Russia has engaged with Turkey, Germany and France to convene a summit for peaceful reconstruction of Syria. The latest summit held in Ankara at the end of last month follows several other such meetings in Astana and Sochi, largely at the behest of Russian leader Vladimir Putin, to find a political settlement to the nearly eight-year war in Syria – a war that was fomented covertly by Washington and its allies for regime change.

France’s Macron talks about “multilateralism” for world peace, yet the two countries which have arguably supported and implemented multilateralism in practice are Russia and China in their calls and policies for global partnership and economic development.

And yet it is Russia and China that are being harassed with American and European sanctions, and US military provocations.

The unilateral, lawless imperialism that engendered World War I and 20 years later World War II is still alive and dangerously vigorous. We only have to look around the present world to realize that. But when the culprits indulge in a triumph of bullshit then we also know that the world is once again in very grave danger.

Creepy Porn Lawyers’ disgusting assault on Tucker Carlson and his 19 year old daughter (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 14.

Alex Christoforou

Published

on

Days after ANTIFA targeted Fox News’ Tucker Carlson’s home, trying to intimidate and scare the TV host into curbing his free speech against totalitarian mob rule propagated by ANTIFA and their paymasters, it appears that the SJW establishment swamp is going after Tucker with everything they got…sending in the expendable, and always eager to get publicity, Creepy Porn Lawyer, Michael Avenatti, to try and ensnare Carlson in some sort of racist assault scandal.

The entire event appears to be a staged, purposefully hitting upon all the right identity politics buttons…so as to maximize full SJW pressure on Tucker and Fox News.

The Gateway Pundit reports that Tucker Carlson has denied Michael Avenatti’s charges of assault, and explains that his actions were prompted by an unhinged gay man calling his daughter a wh*re and a c**t…

Creepy porn star Michael Avenatti made headlines again this weekend with trumped up charges of assault against FOX News host Tucker Carlson.

On Saturday Avenatti released video of Tucker Carlson in an argument with a crowd of people at a country club in Virginia.

Avenatti claims Tucker assaulted a gay Latino immigrant for no reason.

Avenatti posted this video made the allegations on Saturday.

RT CrossTalk host Peter Lavelle and The Duran’s Alex Christoforou take a quick look at the SJW swamps’ latest attempt to smear Tucker Carlson, by going after his 19-year old daughter, in a disgusting display of misogyny and hate towards the very women that establishment liberal claims to defend.

Here’s Carlson’s full statement about the incident:

“On October 13, I had dinner with two of my children and some family friends at the Farmington Country Club in Charlottesville, Virginia. Toward the end of the meal, my 19-year-old daughter went to the bathroom with a friend. On their way back through the bar, a middle aged man stopped my daughter and asked if she was sitting with Tucker Carlson. My daughter had never seen the man before. She answered: ‘That’s my dad,’ and pointed to me. The man responded, ‘Are you Tucker’s whore?’ He then called her a ‘f—— c—.’

“My daughter returned to the table in tears. She soon left the table and the club. My son, who is also a student, went into the bar to confront the man. I followed. My son asked the man if he’d called his sister a ‘whore’ and a ‘cunt.’ The man admitted he had, and again become profane. My son threw a glass of red wine in the man’s face and told him to leave the bar, which he soon did.

“Immediately after the incident, I described these events to the management of the Farmington Country Club. The club spent more than three weeks investigating the incident. Last week, they revoked the man’s membership and threw him out of the club.

“I love my children. It took enormous self-control not to beat the man with a chair, which is what I wanted to do. I think any father can understand the overwhelming rage and shock that I felt seeing my teenage daughter attacked by a stranger. But I restrained myself. I did not assault this man, and neither did my son. That is a lie. Nor did I know the man was gay or Latino, not that it would have mattered. What happened on October 13 has nothing to do with identity politics. It was a grotesque violation of decency. I’ve never seen anything like it in my life.”

Former Hillary Clinton Advisor: She’s Running Again in 2020

Clinton admitted that while she doesn’t want to run again — she would “like to be president.”

The Duran

Published

Via The Gateway Pundit…


Hillary Clinton’s former adviser Mark Penn is warning the public that we should brace ourselves for another run from the power hungry sore loser in 2020.

Penn co-wrote in a Sunday op-ed for the Wall Street Journal that she “won’t let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House.”

“True to her name, Mrs. Clinton will fight this out until the last dog dies,” the op-ed that Penn authored with Andrew Stein claims. “She won’t let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House.”

Like a cockroach that just won’t die, or the final boss in a video game that keeps obnoxiously coming back after each defeat — Clinton just won’t go away.

Penn said that by “reinventing herself as a liberal firebrand, Mrs. Clinton will easily capture the 2020 nomination.”

“You can expect her to run for president once again,” he said. “Maybe not at first, when the legions of Senate Democrats make their announcements, but definitely by the time the primaries are in full swing.”

Last month, Clinton admitted that while she doesn’t want to run again — she would “like to be president.”

Even some of her closest allies want her to give it a rest though.

“She’s more likely to win Powerball,” Philippe Reines, Clinton’s longtime adviser, told The Hill.

While nobody really wants to hear that woman’s voice ever again — at least the right can recycle all their best memes from 2016.
