Rachel Maddow called out by fellow liberals for pushing anti-Trump conspiracy

MSNBC star Rachel Maddow’s latest anti-Trump conspiracy theory was so outlandish that even the dependably liberal HuffPost criticized it as “so flimsy that it could be debunked by a quick glance at a map.” On Thursday evening, “The Rachel Maddow Show” opened with a somber 25-minute diatribe that attempted to connect the tragic ambush attack that killed four American soldiers in Niger to the latest version of President Trump’s proposed travel ban, which included the nation of Chad. Maddow essentially claimed that the inclusion of Chad, which recently pulled its troops out of Niger, in the revised travel ban resulted in extremist attacks such as the one that left four Americans dead. The HuffPost, which is so anti-Trump that it refused to even cover him in the political section during the early stages of his campaign, published a story headlined, “What the hell was this Rachel Maddow segment?” The MSNBC host proclaimed that Chad’s pullout from Niger “had an immediate effect in emboldening ISIS attacks,” but the HuffPost easily shot down her theory. Colby College Department of Government assistant professor Laura Seay told the HuffPost that “any expert” would have said Maddow’s conspiracy theory was “crazy” and the pullout of Chadian troops isn’t necessarily related to the Trump travel ban. “Everybody that I know is appalled by this. I would like to think that Maddow’s researchers are more responsible,” Seay told the HuffPost. While the MSNBC host called the tragic attack on American troops “absolutely baffling,” Seay said it was actually “almost inevitable,” because it’s such a remote and hostile area. “The attacks that have increased can be traced back to militant group Boko Haram, which is based just across the border in Nigeria,” the HuffPost reported, citing the Council on Foreign Relations and accounts from local residents. “The Rachel Maddow Show” declined to comment to HuffPost but the host addressed the situation on Friday night’s episode. “Over the course of the day today, lots of people have been very upset with me for reporting that last night, which is fine. I didn’t know you cared. But the upset over my reporting doesn’t mean that anything I reported wasn’t true,” Maddow said. “Everything I reported was true.” Maddow continued: “Now, this doesn’t mean that Chad withdrawing their troops was necessarily the cause of what happened to those U.S. troops who were ambushed. That ambush is being described by the Pentagon as a shock.” The HuffPost’s Willa Frej wrote that Maddow built “myths” using unrelated or unreliable information and “reduced the story so thoroughly that it lost any semblance of the larger truth.”

Exactly..  Rachel is a sanctimonious, self-righteous, arrogant, extreme liberal elitist who thinks she’s smarter than everyone else.  The irony is, she really is breathtakingly stupid.  Unfortunately, far too many brain-washed liberal millennials follow her pathological ‘hate Trump at all costs’ crusade…just because it’s Trump; the source of all evil in the universe…at least according to these brain-dead idiots.  Rachel is such a lunatic, that even the uber-liberal HuffPost is calling her out now.  That takes some doin’.  We’ll, of course, continue to expose Rachel’s idiocy and document her factual shortcomings and ineptitude.  Please share this article with all of your friends and family members who watch Rachel, or MSNBC in general.  They are the ones that need to see stuff like this.

Nolte: Roger Goodell Fell for Mainstream Media’s Fake Reality and Destroyed NFL (Possibly Forever)

When the first half of the 21st century is way back enough for a history to be written unencumbered by agenda, President Barack Obama will be remembered as the worst thing that ever happened to the Democrat Party. And to the NFL.* If you think that is a stretch, hear me out… Thanks to George W. Bush’s terrible second term, two unbelievably awful Republican opponents in John McCain and Mitt Romney, not to mention the charisma and impressive political skills as the most leftwing senator in the country, Barry O won two national elections and did so by impressive margins. The problem is that America’s so-called Smart People misread these victories. And by “Smart People,” I am, of course, sarcastically referring to Democrats, the imbecilic Republican establishment, and the corrupt national media — all of whom deluded themselves into believing that Obama’s victory meant that the country had not just moved to the left, but to the far left. Buoyed by this mistaken belief, not only did the Democrat Party move to the far-left (Warren, Bernie, Hillary 7.0, etc), so did the media. Over Obama’s eight years, among others, the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, and MSNBC believed they were capturing a zeitgeist by hiring tons of rabid leftwing propagandists, a freak show that includes Ana Navarro, Philip Bump, Jake Tapper, Chris Cillizza, Jemele Harris, Chris Cuomo, Al Sharpton, Rachel Maddow, Joy Reid… ESPN was so sure of this, it went from a rock n’ roll sports network to MSESPN. What no one wanted to acknowledge, though, is that almost immediately after Obama’s 2009 inauguration, voters began a major course correction. In February 2010, Republican Scott Brown’s U.S. Senate victory (to replace Ted Kennedy) in, of all places, Massachusetts, combined with the historic wipeout of Democrats just nine months later in the 2010 midterms– this should have told the so-called Smart People that Obama was an anomaly, not a trend. But because the so-called Smart People chose not to recognize this, chose to keep the velvet bubble in place, over the next eight years, the Democrat Party has been nearly wiped out at every level, local and national. Nevertheless, our sports and political media, which are now infested with hardcore, Obama-era leftists, have consciously refused to recognize reality. Even as Democrats lose their strongholds in New England, even as Republicans win every special election, the media not only refuse to recognize the fact that America is a right-of-center country, they are intentionally fabricating a reality that says the exact opposite. The reason for this goes beyond personal partisan denial. It is a propaganda tactic. Basically, the media believe that the only way to push America to the far left is to manufacture a reality (backed by fraudulent polling) that says we are already there and that anyone who is not on the Progressive Express is in the minority. Although the everyday American voters who have decimated the Democrat Party have, thankfully, not fallen for it, when you are talking about billions and billions of corporate dollars being spent on this propaganda, it is going to have an effect, and in many ways has. For example, despite total control over the federal government, the imbecilic Republican establishment have fallen for it, and, as a result, have done absolutely nothing to keep long-held promises or to advance Trump’s agenda. As a consequence, their own base now despises them and a full-blown insurgency is already claiming scalps. Which brings me to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who also fell for the propaganda and who is also dealing with a five-alarm disaster of his own making. In Goodell’s provincial world, in his deluded thinking, shaped by ESPN and CNN, he was fooled into believing America is enamored with identity politics and social justice. And so, although every other form of personal expression is banned by the NFL, Goodell actually believed it was a good idea to give the okay for spoiled millionaires to publicly express their hatred and contempt for America. Completely out of touch with the common man and fan, Goodell fell for the media’s fake reality and did irreparable damage to the NFL. My wife is a perfect example. Since childhood, thanks to a tradition handed down by her father, the Green Bay Packers has been one of the great passions of her life — until this season. And this is what should really terrify Goodell… My wife’s lost passion is not a political statement or protest. Her passion died a natural death as she watched something she once loved betray her country. She is not angry. She just stopped caring. How does the NFL recover from that, from indifference, from those who have moved on? Now that it is almost certainly too late, now that the Morning Joe scales have fallen from Goodell’s eyes, now that the ratings and empty stadiums and devastating polls make it impossible for even a somewhat powerful media to keep Goodell’s bubble afloat, the man charged with protecting this institution has finally figured out that it might not be a good idea to open every NFL game with your players giving the American flag the finger. What a jackass, what a pathetic and delusional fool, a weakling, who allowed the media’s phony reality to drag him into deep water from which he can no longer escape. The saddest thing, though, is that no one — not Goodell, not the Republican establishment, will acknowledge their own demise as a cautionary tale, as a valuable lesson in never again falling for propaganda. Rather than come to terms with the reality of an America that looks like this, they would prefer to see it all burn down. *I originally added “to America” to this sentence but then realized that President Trump is doing such a stellar job erasing Barry’s failed legacy that this is no longer true.

John Nolte really just hit the nail on the head here.  Excellent!

Transgender Wyoming woman convicted of sexually assaulting 10-year-old girl in bathroom

A transgender Wyoming woman was convicted Thursday of sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl inside a bathroom. Michelle Martinez, who was known as Miguel Martinez before identifying as female, was found guilty of first-degree and second-degree sexual abuse of a minor and could face up to 70 years in prison. The Billings Gazette reports Martinez, who is a family friend, invited the girl into the bathroom of a home on March 23, and touched her breasts and genitalia before penetrating her. The girl told her mother immediately after the assault, who then reported it to Casper Police. After the attack, the girl told police “it hurt inside,” according to the Casper Star Tribune. Nurses at the Wyoming Medical Center performed a sexual assault exam on the minor and found redness and abrasions around the girl’s genitalia. When police initially questioned Martinez about the assault, she became “noticeably hostile and defensive” and said the girl was “talking crap” before denying being a child molester. Martinez also called the accusations a “publicity stunt,” the Tribune reported. Martinez pleaded not guilty on both counts.

And it begins..  I think I’m gonna vomit.  Remember all the “transgender bathroom” laws controversies in North Carolina and elsewhere?  Keep this in mind..   Glad “it” was convicted.

Opinion: Saving the nation from the left’s bullies

As we’ve all been understandably focused on Hollywood’s Weinstein dumpster fire, a number of stories have emerged exposing the left’s continuing culture war, despite its meltdown in the film industry. The Harvey Weinstein saga is but one symptom of a dangerous and destructive, yet smug and sanctimonious, liberal establishment. While they butcher American culture, civil society and history, how better to keep us normals from interfering than by blaming their victims for society’s ills? Cases in point from the last week, reminding us there are many fronts in our fight to save this nation from the bullies of the pompous left: Dr. Pamela Gaudry was a passenger on a Delta flight that also carried one of our fallen soldiers. Upon landing, the captain announced that the body of Army Staff Sgt. Dustin Wright, who was killed on Oct. 4 in Niger, was on board and asked everyone to stay seated. After Dr. Gaudry organized a few other passengers to join her in singing the national anthem, she was stopped by a flight attendant who, according to a Facebook video posted by the doctor, told her it was against “policy” to sing the anthem on the plane. “The chief flight attendant came back to my seat and she kneeled down and she said, ‘It is against company policy to do what you’re doing,’ ” Dr. Gaudry said in the video. “And I said, ‘The national anthem? And there’s a soldier onboard?’ And she said, ‘Yes, you cannot sing the national anthem. It is against company policy.’ ” Delta has told reporters there is no such policy. The New York Post also reported that Dr. Gaudry was told singing “The Star Spangled Banner” would “offend” other passengers on the plane. The airline is investigating the matter. In the meantime, Dr. Gaudry’s video has gone viral, and the physician told Fox News that Delta called to apologize and Sgt. Wright’s family called to thank her. Also last week, the Biloxi, Mississippi, school board pulled the American classic “To Kill a Mockingbird” from its curriculum because, according to the school board president, “There is some language in the book that makes people uncomfortable,” the Sun Herald reported. The book, Harper Lee’s Pulitzer-Prize winning novel, is an American masterpiece about the trial of a black man as it explores rape, racism and inequality in the Depression-era South. While the Biloxi school board did not specify which language made people uncomfortable, the “N-word” is used over 50 times, within character conversations. The newspaper that broke the story learned about the decision from a reader. “Sun Herald received an email from a concerned reader who said the decision was made ‘mid-lesson plan.’ The students will not be allowed to finish the reading of ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ … due to the use of the ‘N-word.’ … ‘I think it is one of the most disturbing examples of censorship I have ever heard, in that the themes in the story humanize all people regardless of their social status, education level, intellect, and of course, race. It would be difficult to find a time when it was more relevant than in days like these.’ “ And then there’s Halloween. “The latest issue of a magazine run by Ohio State University students features a flow-chart designed to help students determine whether their Halloween costume is racist,” the watchdog group Campus Reform reported. ” ‘Is it politically charged?’ the chart asks of costume ideas that pertain to ‘something serious.’ If yes, the magazine is interested only in whether [it] makes fun of Donald Trump, in which case the chart advises the reader to ‘DO IT.’ “ The costume police, we do learn, are totally OK with a student wearing cultural headgear, but only if you’re a person of color. The scheme of liberal political correctness was never about genuinely making American culture more gallant, it was about inculcating everyone into believing that American culture was diseased and needed to be fixed. When, in fact, it was the liberal agenda itself that needed a deflection. We see how well that worked in Hollywood. Those victimized are not just vulnerable women, but men and children as well. Yet, the obsession curated by liberal leadership like Hillary Clinton, Weinstein and leftist politicians and activists everywhere was that Republicans and Donald Trump were the demons. On Twitter, cultural critic Kurt Schlichter put it perfectly, “No wonder these Hollywood hacks spend so much time screaming about Trump. They’re consumed by guilt over their own complicity so they strike out at somebody who they’ll only get praise for challenging while leaving others in their own business to keep being victimized. Cowards.” The left is sure they can quash the social compact and idea of America itself by convincing a portion of the public that being ‘offended’ is the standard by which we can and should censor and punish. The national anthem is racist, literature highlighting how far we’ve come as a nation is offensive, and even choices people make for costumes are rife with white supremacy and hatred. They say. As liberals insist we look away, they continue to destroy peoples’ lives. It’s taking work and courage, but we must continue to expose the liberal machine controlling both Washington, D.C., and Hollywood as the dangerous hypocrites and liars they are.

Agreed!!  That outstanding op/ed was written by author, and radio talk show host, Tammy Bruce.  Excellent!!    🙂

Arizona restaurant closes following backlash from its pro-Trump Facebook post

An Arizona restaurant was forced to close its doors indefinitely this week after a politically charged Facebook post the eatery’s owners wrote prompted mass criticism from social media users. Christopher Smith and Jay Warren, the owners of Cup it Up American Grill in Tucson, posted a statement on the restaurant’s social media page last week with a list of things the two support and resent, including the president, kneeling for the anthem and late night hosts, Vice News reported. The post stated: “We believe in and support 100% in the following: OUR President, Always Standing for the National Anthem, repealing Obama Care…” The post also listed, God, the Bill of Rights, drug screening for welfare recipients and the U.S. Armed Forces among others they praised. Their list of things they don’t believe in or support included: “Those that DON’T respect our President, Armed Forces and First Responders, kneeling for the national anthem, Antifa, fake news, global warming and late night hosts getting political…” The post concluded with: “If you like this post, please share it with 5 friends and we look forward to your next visit! If you disagree with this post, please share it with 100 friends and we won’t be expecting you anytime soon!” The restaurant’s post also mentioned the eatery would not broadcast NFL games until “the organization got it together.” The post, which went viral, was met with widespread backlash and criticism, forcing the restaurant to delete it and all its social media accounts. The restaurant received “so many angry phone calls” that several employees chose to quit, reports say. “People threatened to burn down the restaurant with the owners in it. It’s a crazy world we’re in,” Ron Sanchez, whose daughter worked at the eatery, told ABC15. Ericka Ayup, a regular customer of the restaurant, told ABC 15 the post was not “smart” but respected their opinion. “I respected their decision to speak up and be patriotic whether people agree or not,” Ayup told ABC 15. “It wasn’t smart for them to do what they did from a business aspect especially being down here in the University — which is more liberal and young.” The restaurant apologized for the post but social media users flooded the eatery’s Yelp page with negative reviews. Last Monday, the restaurant posted a statement on its door, announcing it would be closing indefinitely. “We have made a decision to close our doors indefinitely as of today, Monday, October 9, 2017. The safety of our employees, and our families is of great concern and is our #1 priority at this time,” the statement said. “We would also like to extend a special thanks to our Military and First responders. Thank you all and God Bless.”

This is the country we live in now….where the pc police and speech nazis will go after you, and shut your business down if you dare to exercise your First Amendment rights to say something they don’t agree with.  Oh well..  We hope Cup it Up reopens soon!

Jessica Chastain Admits Hollywood Has No Moral Authority: ‘We’re Very Quick to Point the Finger at Others’

Oscar-nominated actress Jessica Chastain went directly after a key issue that, in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sex scandal, will affect Tinseltown for at least a generation — the fact that the decades-long, industry-wide cover-up of sexual misconduct has destroyed whatever residual moral authority Hollywood had left. Speaking at an Elle magazine event Monday, Chastain said, “Oh we’re very quick to point the finger at others and address the issue with social action and fundraising. Yet there is a clear disconnect between how we practice what we preach in our industry.” She added, “We rally against the presidential candidate who slants a narrative of his sexual assault as mere locker room talk, but at the same time we ignore the stories and warnings of sexual predators in our offices.” While the knock against President Trump is a myth perpetrated by a dishonest national media that continues to lie about Trump “admitting” to sexual harassment in the infamous Access Hollywood tape (he did not), Chastain’s overall point is dead on. There is nothing leftwing Hollywood enjoys more than to spend $50 million on a movie no one will see as a means to scold and look down upon normal Americans, most especially conservatives and Christians, who live in the suburbs, the south or anywhere not on a coast. After Hollywood’s defense of admitted child rapist Roman Polanski ten years ago, this was already laughable. The Weinstein scandal, however, is something altogether different. The public now knows that the very same Hollywood that jumped on the War on Women bandwagon, that slashed and burned every Republican in sight over the issue, that backed Hillary Clinton… That this industry has the dirtiest and most disgusting backyard in corporate history. While Hollywood donned their shrill pussyhats and stridently lectured the rest of us, Tinseltown was aggressively shielding, enabling, and protecting countless predators and harassers. And these harassers and predators are still being shielded.

Indeed..  Well said John!  John Nolte is responsible for that spot-on op/ed.  HollyWEIRD is all about “do as I say; not as I do.”  They’re an industry, the majority of which are narcissistic, self-righteous, arrogant, extreme liberal, elitist hypocrites.  And, they pat themselves on the back each year at that nauseating vomit-worthy get-together called the Oscars….where they tell each other how wonderful they are, while talking down to the rest of us peasants in middle America.  Kudos to Jessica for at least acknowledging that HollyWEIRD has no moral authority.

Opinion: Are you weak if you make your man a sandwich? This is why real men don’t marry feminists

Have you ever made your husband a sandwich? If so, you should be ashamed of yourself. Don’t you realize such behavior sets women back decades? That’s the message of a new article in The Daily Telegraph, entitled “When making a sandwich is a crime against feminism,” about an Australian woman named Maddie who asked a Facebook group of 26,186 mothers whether anyone had some yummy alternatives for her husband’s lunches, which she said she makes for him every day. Now that’s what anyone I know would call a nice wife. But that’s not what Maddie was called on Facebook. Instead, she was told she was nothing but a “slave” and a “1950s housewife.” She was also “weird,” as no woman in her right mind would do something so demeaning as to make her husband lunch. Click here to see just a sampling of some of the responses Maddie got:
