Fake News

Sydney Lord Mayor thinks we’re stupid

Lord Mayor Clover Moore proudly tweeted the City of Sydney went 100% renewable energy.

Shame 87.3% of the state’s electricity came from coal on the day of that announcement. Or is that how it works? Calculate the total energy consumed in Sydney and claim that any renewable energy across the state of NSW was hers?

WaPo admits bounty on US soldiers evidence sketchy and needed confirmation but ran with it anyway

Opinion | This is how democracy dies — in full view of a public ...

The mainstream media has been foaming at the mouth hoping that Trump knew about intelligence that said that Russians were paying bounties to insurgents in Afghanistan for killing US and coalition troops. Social media ran with a #TRE45ON hashtag. They so wanted it to be true. Anything to prevent his reelection. Smear, slime, lie.

It turns out that WaPo has been forced to admit that the information was deemed sketchy and in need of additional confirmation. But hey, let’s run with it anyway!

The NY Times was equally complicit. It was running stories of slain soldiers in Afghanistan in an attempt to smear the president. These journalists have absolutely no morals or ethics. Use dead soldiers to push uncorroborated evidence to feed a narrative.

Shameless. WaPo’s “Democracy dies in darkness” and The NY Times “All the news that fit to print” mottos are perhaps the most inaccurate descriptors imaginable.

As we like to say, journalistic integrity will only return when the mainstream media loves America more than they hate Trump.

Another WaPo fact check blows up in its face

You have to hand it to the left. The Washington Post decided to challenge the claim made by President Trump that the cities where all of the violent crime was happening were Democrat-controlled.

True to form the left-leaning newspaper wrote, “It’s not clear how Trump is defining “most dangerous” in this context. So let’s look at two related sets of data compiled by the FBI: most violent crime and most violent crime per capita…The most recent data to that effect is from the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report covering the first half of 2019. The cities with the most violent crimes are many of the most populous cities in the country, as you might expect. Those with the highest rates of violent crime are from a range of different states.”

The stats came out as in the chart. In overall terms, 17 of the top 20 cities with violent crime were Democrat-controlled, 2 were independent and 1 Republican.

In terms of per 10,000 inhabitants, 19 out of 20 were Democrat-controlled with one independent run.

Technically a lie, but the correlation is striking.

Fake News at its most sinister

How disgraceful that NPR, a state-funded media, runs such political bias in its coverage. NPR ran a narrative that a right-wing lunatic was intentionally attacking protestors using the car as a battering ram.

A video that followed showed the protestors harassing the driver. The driver took off and collected one of them. Totally avoidable incident.

As it turns out, NPR retracted the story, deleted the tweet and issued this.

Shameless.

Journalistic integrity, or the lack of it, was best explained by Denzel Washington in this video.

Follow the logic of paid actors at Trump’s Tulsa rally

No photo description available.

The left is now pushing the idea that Trump is paying for people of colour to attend his rallies. This was an advert on Craigslist which has since been taken down. A similar job posting like it was uploaded ahead of a Phoenix rally in 2017. It was shown to be fake.

Even if one desperately wanted to assume it was legitimate, let’s question the logic of why he’d need to do it at all? Also if minorities hated Trump so much no amount of minimum wage incentive would get them to join a rally that would hurt them over the next four years.

One million people have registered to attend the Tulsa, Oklahoma Trump rally. Tulsa, by the way, has a population of only 400,000. How many minority actors/actresses would be required, assuming Trump was so desperate to show he had their support in order for them not to be diluted in the sea of presumably white MAGA crowd??

As we reported last week, Rasmussen Reports latest poll revealed that 41% of blacks and 43% of other minorities support Trump. These are record highs. This is up from 34% in December 2019. And a 5-fold jump on 2016. Why would he need to pay for people to show up?

Perhaps the more sensible conclusion might be to hire a bunch of paid white thugs to pick on paid minority Trump actors to create a narrative that they the MAGA supporters are all unhinged racists to swing the vote the other way? CNN camera crews will mysteriously be on the spot as it unfolds.

Better still, just give Jussie Smollett a call. He knows how to arrange hate hoaxes. Beware of Nigerian body builders in white hoods, MAGA hats and bleach loitering around the Subway sandwich joint.

DIY tips on decolonizing our bookshelves using tax dollars

Good to see that our own Australian government-funded ABC isn’t the only network that wastes taxpayer funds on pushing cultural Marxist narratives. NPR, a US taxpayer-subsidized media network, is offering its advice on encouraging whites to “decolonize their bookshelves.

We only hope the ABC doesn’t get ideas. We may have spoken too soon. It self-flagellated over the weekend over the lack of ‘cultural diversity’ on its Insiders program, especially as it had been discussing aboriginal deaths in custody.

We just wonder that after we’ve decolonized our bookshelves, should we continue to go a step further and ensure that there is a balanced representation of genders between the bookends. Surely any skew above 51% to male authors suggests unconscious toxic masculinity which should be purged at once. Will the wife’s Mills & Boon collection be deemed as too stereotypical of modern sexual orientation? As to the kid’s books? Well, NPR has told us that Dr. Seuss can be racist.

We have concluded that from tonight we will only watch films that support social justice, feminism and self-loathing, lest let Netflix profile the previously viewed titles as a reason to call us out to publicly apologize and atone for those socially unjust sins.

After we have done our DIY bookshelf purge, how will those supposedly oppressed by a bookshelf they cannot see, benefit? At this rate, we think taking a knee in front of a book BBQ and renouncing white privilege uploaded the video to Twitter ought to do it.

Gone With The Wind

WH Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany brilliantly lays waste to the pathetic questions press corps and then walks out. From the 23rd minute, she turns the media’s own headlines back on them again.

You have to question how ridiculous the debate over George Floyd has become when HBO removes ‘Gone With The Wind‘ from its list of titles its customers can view. More vacuous virtue signalling! Surprised they didn’t go back to see which customers viewed it and reported them to activists to be harangued and doxxed for their pandering to racism.

Whoops…BLMDC whacks Mayor Bowser’s woke stunt for appeasing white liberals

DC renames part of 16th Street Black Lives Matter Way

Seems DC Mayor Muriel Bowser caught the ire of local Black Lives Matter (BLM) chapter after she went to the trouble of naming a plaza after the movement. BLMDC thinks the black mayor has historically been on the wrong side of the BLM movement.

BLMDC tweeted that Bowser’s move was a “performative distraction” from her “inaction” to meet the “demands to decrease the police budget and invest in the community…” which was followed up with,

“This is to appease white liberals while ignoring our demands…Black Lives Matter means defund the police.

Get Woke, Lose Votes

Why does the Lamestream Media brazenly lie so much?

How can our ABC continue to receive taxpayer funds when its political bias is so shocking? It joined the same lame mainstream media chorus which twisted the truth of what Trump actually said about George Floyd.

Of course Twitter was utterly silent with its fact checking department whose chief of site integrity is staunchly anti-Trump. What a surprise?!?

How we read so much sanctimonious reporting about fact checking when Twitter first targeted POTUS the other week. Hypocrites.

Trump Derangement Syndrome must make it into the 6th edition of the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders).

As we often say, journalistic integrity will only return when the media loves America more than it hates Trump.

Media Hijacks the #GeorgeFloyd Protests to Fan the Flames of Sedition

No one should be seeking to exploit the loss of George Floyd at the hands of inexcusable police brutality. Sadly, the #GeorgeFloyd demonstrations have been brazenly hijacked by a growing number of anarchists assisted by willing accomplices in the media to fan the flames of sedition. As Hillary Clinton said, “never let a good crisis go to waste!

Let’s not forget that the majority of Americans were united against what transpired. Yet the first thing the press seized on was to promote the idea of division.

Yes, in certain pockets of society systemic racism exists in America. It shouldn’t but it does. No amount of kneeling or social media virtue signaling can convince those who have hate in their hearts to change. Burning down buildings only hardens their beliefs.

We found a curious documentary several years ago about Daryl Davis, a black man who befriended the KKK. Davis found that listening to them was all that was required. He has caused many to hand in their robes. There is reason why god gave us two ears and one mouth – so we listen more and talk less. We encourage you to watch the full episode. It is eye opening.

Unfortunately, as we pointed out a few days ago, the statistics simply do not bear a deepening rift in race relations to be the case.

We also note the benevolent actions of so many citizens during the crisis who have flatly rejected the doctored sentiment preached by the journalistic corps. Armed militia have felt compelled to guard stores across the country to prevent more livelihoods succumbing to senseless acts of sponsored depravity in their neighbourhoods. Desiree Barnes tore strips off looters in New York for the damage done to her community by those who haven’t the first clue what impact their actions have had. 

We see these as more accurate representations of the mood of the majority of average Americans than mindless clickbait journalists and Twitterati deliberately try to ignore.

Economist and social theorist, Thomas Sowell once said,

Activism is a way for useless people to feel important, even if the consequences of their activism are counterproductive for those they claim to be helping and damaging to the fabric of society as a whole.”

We posted a video of Washington DC resident Nestride Yumga who took on hundreds of Black Lives Matter (BLM) protestors for rank hypocrisy because they don’t attempt to raise awareness for the 191 homicides in Chicago so far this year.

We noted that BLM have been silent over the death of  77yo African American David Dorn, a retired Louisville Police captain, was killed by a rioter defending a pawnshop over a TV.

David McAtee was a 53-year-old African American man known for providing free meals to police officers who stopped by his restaurant was killed in a shoot out he was not a part of. Where was BLM?

Yet BLM activists have been happy to target white liberals putting black squares on their social media avatars.

FNF Media is no fan of slacktivism, the idea that moral preening on social media is enough to make one worthy. In the end, the cause ends up all about themselves – upping evidence of keyboard commitment to ensure acceptance. Still BLM focused anger at the overuse of their hashtag, not the actual problems of people dying in cold blood.

Many more police officers of all races have been injured, shot and several killed during the violence. Americans are appalled. Violence IS the problem.

Almost everything in the mainstream media (MSM) has become sensationalism writ large. When clickbait driven advertising revenues are at stake and an opportunity to knock off the very head that fuels their derangement, objectivity be damned.

Peaceful demonstrations to raise awareness about corrupt cops and the problems created by centuries of systemic racism are enshrined in the constitution. Trump openly stated he wants to protect 1A. Yet CNN’s Don Lemon had the nerve to call Trump’s actions the path to a “dictatorship.” His colleagues on the scene spoke of “mostly peaceful protests” as one stood in front of a building which was engulfed in 40ft high flames and another dodging bottles hurled at him.

The MSM went out of its way to talk about peaceful demonstrators being brutally suppressed by vindictive law enforcement officers. Innocent protestors have become unfortunate collateral damage in too many cases, mostly due to the proximity of the rioters to them.

Perhaps keyboard warriors might propose what the police should do in order to maintain order? Should law enforcement ask each protestor if they intend to commit acts of theft, violence or assault? It is just not an option when rioters are exacerbating the protestors’ suffering in the same areas. The rioters couldn’t give a damn about George Floyd. That is self-evident.

Think through the logic of those who have spent a lifetime building a business. If Trump says he wants to overwhelm vandals who have no qualms destroying their innocent livelihoods with a bigger show of force where do you think the public sympathy will lie? The promise to follow up with harsh sentencing via the brainless uploading of their crimes to social media feeds will only win more support,

Then we had sanctimonious celebrities spewing hypocrisy behind gated mansions with armed rent-a-cops who would shoot rioters on a whim if they were threatened. Hollywood only proved Ricky Gervais 100% correct.

The Left has demanded Trump reason with the rioters. How would appeasement tactics work with a group who utterly despise him? Had he played defence it would have given the mob a free license to push the crisis into overdrive which is exactly what they crave. After all, the ends justify the means. 

The media relished the chance to tag Trump as a coward, claiming he had fled to his bunker. Such calls are made solely at the discretion of the Secret Service, the people paid to protect him. This is exactly why he staged the walk across Lafayette Square ahead of his security team and pose in front of St. Johns Church to debunk that narrative.

Yet journalists devoted more outrage over this action to clear a path to the house of worship than the very acts of the rioters who unsuccessfully tried to burn it to the ground a day earlier. Priorities.

The media repeatedly pushed lies about tear gas being used on those peaceful protestors outside 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Never mind that the US Park Police went on record to deny that accusations and state they had been attacked with projectiles “including bricks, frozen water bottles and caustic liquids” and “found caches of glass bottles, baseball bats and metal poles hidden along the street.” Must be the same peaceful protestors CNN has talked about.

Trump has only one real option – play offense. Which he is doing. Most Americans want an end to seeing footage of police in Buffalo being callously run down by speeding rioters or other cops being shot and filmed as they bleed out. They want law and order restored and the longer it goes the more angry they will get at authorities sitting doing nothing when they were only too happy to issue citations for violating stay at home orders.

Yet it doesn’t matter what Trump does. Even if he delivered the very script the MSM wrote for him, they’d find fault.

We could go on and on.

We should all condemn all violence and vigorously defend the right to free speech. What we are seeing is activists pushing for more of the former and less of the latter. That should tell us much.

We think these riots have solidified Trump’s chances for re-election. Fewer Americans want to be associated with groups that openly embrace thuggery and looting as fair game.

Lived experience through the past two weeks of violence and the past three months of lockdown are enough evidence to prove that Americans are growing tired of anarchy and totalitarianism. There is only one candidate who openly stands against it – Trump.

Two other things we’ve learnt.

The picture at the top depicts yet more sanctimonious hijacking of the George Floyd tragedy by protestors in Sydney (and many other countries). Despite facts borne out of a Royal Commission that aboriginal deaths in custody were no different to any other demographic, woke mobs think killing cops is something to boast about.

The only other thing we’ve learnt is that ignoring social distancing doesn’t seem to be a problem either.

Let’s hope this senseless violence is quelled and cooler heads prevail.
