Propaganda and Fake News – exposed. Rule of Law? Rule for Radicals on display

‘Attn:’ Video Spreads Lies About Processed Food In America, Europe By Alex Berezow – “”Attn:” is an activist website that produces extremely popular videos, … And like most activist websites, truth comes in a distant second place to eyeballs.”

“the video pushes the old trope that Europeans eat food hand-picked from the Garden of the Gods, while Americans eat slop filled with dangerous chemicals. So far, it’s received 62 million views.

The lies come early and often. Let’s break them down:

The definition of “processed” itself is so vague, that it’s meaningless. [like “Assault” Rifle]

the video casts doubt not only on this fundamental tenet of toxicology but on the scientific integrity of the FDA. It then touts the benefits of the precautionary principle in Europe, which essentially means that Europeans assume every single chemical is deadly unless it can be proven safe. Since science can never definitively prove that something is 100% safe, that’s a ridiculous standard, but it’s enshrined in the EU’s constitution.

62 million people saw that video. That’s the scope of the problem actual science communicators are facing.

Why a 53-Year-Old Big-City Lawyer Who Has Never Shot a Gun Joined the NRA by Josh Kantrow – “I did so because the anti-gun hysteria that I’ve witnessed is dangerous, alarming, and ignores the facts.”

“I have found that instead of focusing on these social issues and law enforcement breakdowns, we’ve seen unbridled hatred and rage directed toward responsible gun owners. I’ve seen this personally by my friends on the Left.

The Knee-Jerk Liberals Spit At Sinclair by L. Brent Bozell And Tim Graham – “In a 60- to 75-second second promo, the local anchors in each market read the script, and the Trump-hating media gave birth to a large cow.”

“On HBO, John Oliver denounced Sinclair anchors as sounding like “members of a brainwashed cult.” So, exactly how do anchors of news or entertainment shows across the country deliver their reports? Oliver doesn’t have a script? The HBO denunciations of a “brainwashed cult” are especially hilarious, since it creates Democratic propaganda films like last year’s “fly-on-the-wall” documentary “The Final Year” on Obama’s team of supposed foreign-policy geniuses.

The Herd Media Stampedes Sinclair by George Neumayr – “In an unguarded moment during the 2016 campaign, MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski remarked that it is “our job,” not Trump’s, to “control exactly what people think.” The Sinclair Broadcast Group referenced that line in its promo

“beneath the hysterical blather was nothing more than the hurt feelings of an exposed liberal propagandist. Sinclair had nailed her and she didn’t like it.

It is rich farce to see the herd media stampeding Sinclair for refusing to join it.

The hypocrisy of this hectoring is only exceeded by its presumption.

The attacks on Sinclair amount to nothing more than a brainwashing exercise designed to get all media companies to forfeit their autonomy to liberals.

Sinclair shouldn’t surrender an inch to these frauds who feel entitled to set their employee and editorial policies for it. They are just a herd of embittered, has-been monopolists who still think it their sacred right to “control exactly what people think” without competition. They are the greatest enemies of a free press — conformists who chill free speech and call it journalism.

On the Trump-Russia investigation and the rule of law by Byron York – “This week I took part in a debate on the question “Does the Russia investigation endanger the rule of law?” I said yes, and here is why

“First, a caveat: If “endanger the rule of law” means “destroys our legal order and threatens our democracy,” then no, I don’t think the Trump-Russia investigation does that. But if it means “involves our nation’s most powerful law enforcement and intelligence agencies in reckless political conduct that undermines our system of elections and the orderly transfer of power,” then yes, the Trump-Russia investigation does, in fact, endanger the rule of law.

Two incidents from 2016 and early 2017 point to the danger posed by overzealous Trump-Russia investigators.

The bottom line is, the Flynn saga, which is at the heart of the Trump-Russia investigation, appears to have hinged on a trumped-up suspicion that a new administration had broken a centuries-old law that has never been prosecuted before — when in fact, the new administration’s real transgression was to make clear it would throw away many of its predecessor’s policies.

The second incident that suggests the Trump investigation threatens the rule of law is the FBI’s use of the Trump dossier — a Clinton campaign opposition research product — as a part of its counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign.

this was all done by the nation’s top law enforcement and intelligence officials, targeting a new president. So yes, it is reasonable to say the Trump-Russia investigation endangers the rule of law.

The Justice Department Sues California by Margot Cleveland – “The state is trying to grab control of federal lands.”

“Given the clarity of this command, in conjunction with the governing constitutional provisions, SB 50 seems destined for a quick demise — but not without a cost: As Attorney General Jeff Sessions pointed out in a scathing statement announcing the lawsuit, California is wasting government resources on litigation. “The Department of Justice is fighting every day to take illegal guns and drugs off our streets, combat the opioid epidemic and secure our borders from drug traffickers and criminal aliens, and protect our national security from radical Islamic extremists and foreign threats to our cyber security,” he wrote. “But once again, we see that too many of our resources are being diverted to deal with meritless and unnecessary lawsuits.”

Restrain may not be the correct word, though. Resistance seems the more apt descriptor, but as Attorney General Sessions stressed, “government-by-litigation isn’t what the American people voted for and attempting to thwart an administration’s elected agenda through endless, meritless lawsuits is a dangerous precedent.”

Nonetheless, California seems undeterred — as further seen yesterday, when Democratic attorney general Xavier Becerra threatened to sue the Environmental Protection Agency following EPA administrator Scott Pruitt’s announcement that the federal government intended to roll back the fuel-efficiency standards for cars adopted by the previous administration. This development is yet more proof that, notwithstanding the cost to taxpayers — both federal and state — California remains committed to using the courts to overturn the consequences of the 2016 presidential election.

This method of going to court to pursue anything is one of the Rules for Radicals. As with the immigrant horde heading to the boarder being trained to seek asylum or the ‘slow walking’ of nominees in the Senate or examining administration member behavior under a cynical microscope to make allegations, the effort is to hobble and destroy proper governance. It is fomenting revolution, a civil war, and tearing down the house in which those doing the destruction live themselves.

Caravan? What Caravan? By John Hinderaker – “Weirdly, the liberal media pretended to have no idea what the President was talking about. Politifact purported to fact-check

“Politifact finally concedes that what Trump said was true, but inconsistent with Democratic Party narratives. (That’s my paraphrase.)

Politifact linked to the Associated Press’s similarly angst-ridden “fact check.”

Oddly, neither the AP nor Politifact shows any sign of having read the press release issued by the caravan’s leaders, which explains what it is all about.

There you have it. These leftists demand open borders because as Hondurans, they are just as much citizens of the U.S. as we are. This is simply a false statement of fact. But it nevertheless represents a political agenda. These would-be migrants and their supporters in the U.S.–who, unfortunately, are plentiful–don’t believe in sovereignty. They don’t believe in borders. They don’t believe in citizenship. They don’t believe in countries. Most particularly, they don’t believe in ours, notwithstanding the fact that some of them, at least, want to come here.

So the caravan represents a direct, if symbolic, challenge to our sovereignty and our right to govern ourselves as a free people. President Trump understands this, while Politifact and the Associated Press do not. Or, perhaps, they do understand but pretend not to.

The Democrats and their press minions see nothing problematic about this. But the rest of us do.

Instapundit: “I QUESTION THE TIMING: Rosenstein Memo confirming Mueller could investigate Manafort came a week after raid on Manafort’s home. Prof. Jacobson notes: “The August 2, 2017 memo was classic bootstrapping. It purported to confirm Mueller’s authority to go after Manafort’s business dealings, but Mueller already was doing that and had been doing it for weeks, culminating in the July 26 home raid. So to the extent the Rosenstein August 2, 2017 memorandum is supposed to instill confidence that Mueller is receiving proper DOJ oversight, it does just the opposite.”
