Obama Photographer Claims Trump Baghdadi Raid Situation Room Photo was Faked, Then Admits to Fake News

President Obama’s one-time official White House photographer jumped to Twitter on Sunday to claim that Trump put out a faked photo of the situation room.

Published

Pete Souza, President Obama’s one-time official White House photographer, quickly jumped to Twitter on Sunday to claim that Trump put out a faked photo of the situation room taken during the raid on Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

The photo released shows President Trump, Vice President Pence, and others waiting for information about the raid to come from the forces in the field, but Souza insisted that the photo was staged and not a real photo taken during the raid.

The Obamaite insisted that the times were all wrong because the raid took place at 3:30 PM Washington D.C. time, but the time data on the photo was “17:05:24” (that is 5:05 PM military time).

Therefor, Souza was stating that the photo is a fake put out by the White House because the times are way off:

Soon enough he was forced to issue another tweet to correct his fake news.

Souza was forced to note that the raid didn’t actually begin until 5 PM (not 3:30 as he stated in the first Tweet) and that the military helicopters took about 70 minutes to get over the target, meaning the kill happened around 6 PM.

So, that means the time stamp of “17:05:24” of a photo showing the president waiting for updates is 100 percent correct as the kill happened not long after “17:05:24.”

Naturally, Souza’s fake news got 16.8K retweets and over 44,000 likes from leftists desperate for something to accuse Trump of while his “correction” of his fake news only got 574 retweets and 1.3K likes.

Despite Souza’s attempt to give aid to our enemies, ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was eliminated, for certain. But so was ISIS Spokesman Abu al-Hassan al-Muhajir.

It appears that al-Muhajir was working to get al-Baghdadi spirited away to be hidden in Turkey when the end came for the both of them.

Trump wins again.

Published

on

CNN’s anchor Dana Bash applauded President Trump on his handling of the China-originated novel coronavirus outbreak, praising Trump as the “kind of leader that people need” in this time of crisis.

“If you look at the big picture this was remarkable from the President of the United States. This is nonpartisan. An important thing to note and to applaud from an American standpoint, from a human standpoint. He is being the kind of leader people need.”

MSM: Calling Virus ‘Wuhan Virus’ Or ‘Chinese Coronavirus’ Is Racist… But Here’s The MSM Calling It That

The MSM are the biggest hypocrites in the world.

Published

on

A new video from the Media Research Center perfectly illustrates an obvious double-standard used by the MSM deeming it racist to point out the origin of the Wuhan virus if done so by Republicans.

Here are 35 times the MSM called it the ‘Wuhan Coronavirus’ or ‘Chinese Coronavirus:’

Here’s a fun fact for them… The Ebola Virus was named after the Ebola river in the Congo, near where it was first discovered. According to the left, the name of it must be changed. Also, the West Nile virus must be changed. It’s not possible for me to loathe these people anymore. The Democrats are absolutely insane.

Twitter goes wild:

MSNBC Star Retires Mid-Show, Stunning Replacement Anchor

The vaunted vitriolic vehicle stunned his replacement with the announcement…LIVE!

Published

on

The mainstream media is a rough place these days, as the blend of entertainment to information is trending heavily toward the former as opposed to the all-important latter.

Turn on the television today and all you’ll see is turbo hyperbole run amok, with anchors blathering on in hypotheticals and party-approved talking points, literally shouting at one another when the discussion slides in their opponents’ favor.

Furthermore, these vaunted vitriol vehicles are under a microscope at all times, with their words being wrung into whatever shape best suits the viewer’s own opinion, no matter how uninformed or uncouth they might be.

Amid this chaos, one of MSNBC’s mainstays has taken a bow, and done so in a shocking, mid-show manner.

MSNBC star Chris Matthews shocked his colleagues and viewers Monday night by announcing that he was stepping down as host of the cable news channel’s primetime staple, “Hardball,” effective immediately.

“Let me start with my headline tonight: I’m retiring. This is the last ‘Hardball’ on MSNBC,” Matthews announced at the top of his show. “And obviously, this isn’t for the lack of interest in politics. As you can tell, I loved every minute of my 20 years as host of ‘Hardball.’ Every morning I read the papers and I’m gung-ho to get to work. Not many people have had this privilege. I loved working with my producers and our discussions we’d have on how we report the news. And I love having this connection with you, the people who watch.”

He continued, “After conversations with NBC, I decided tonight will be my last ‘Hardball.’ So let me tell you why. The younger generations out there are ready to take the reins. We see them in politics, in the media, and fighting for their causes.”

Political correspondent Steve Kornacki helmed the remainder of Hardball, appearing a bit shocked after an extended commercial break followed Matthew’s announcement.

CNN’s Boykin Smears Black Americans Who Support President Trump As “Uncle Toms”

Published

on

CNN’s Keith Boykin: “How the hell do you say you’re making a serious effort to reach black people when you haven’t even gone to a black community, he hasn’t even gone to the black community in Washington, D.C., in New York, in Harlem or in Brooklyn where he lived. He has not made any serious effort to reach black people. The idea that anybody would sit in a room with Donald Trump and call him the first black president after we had Barack Obama as a president shows just what kind of Uncle Toms were sitting in that room.”

Here’s the video of Boykin’s slur:

Now just imagine if a conservative commentator had said this. Would they still have a job?

President Trump Sues Major Newspaper for Libel in ‘Fake News’ Case

Given just how often Trump and this particular paper have sparred over the years, we’re surprised it took this long to get this far.

Published

on

The mainstream media has been having one heck of a time keeping up with the first term of Donald Trump’s presidency, and they’ve certainly been a little lacking in the “fact-checking” department as of late.

Some seem to believe that the left-leaning pockets of the media machine are simply allowing these errors to go unnoticed, just long enough to put such ideas out into the world, to whatever end that accomplishes.  Others believe that this distortion of facts comes from the unsettling and chaotic environment of our political scene in the 21st century.

In either case, President Trump’s legal team isn’t going to let it slide.

President Donald Trump’s campaign sued The New York Times for libel over a March 2019 opinion article, saying the newspaper published its allegedly false claims with the “intentional purpose” of damaging Trump’s chances for reelection this year.

The campaign, which is seeking millions of dollars in damages, said The Times falsely reported “as fact a conspiracy with Russia” in the op-ed written by Max Frankel, which was published on March 27, 2019 under the headline “The Real Trump-Russia Quid Pro Quo.”

Frankel is a former executive editor of the newspaper.

The Times had no immediate comment on the lawsuit, which was filed in New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan.

Reached at his home, Frankel declined to comment.

“No, I’m going to leave that to The Times,” he said.

President Trump and the New York Times have quite a history, having sparred repeatedly over the years.

The paper was even bestowed a Trumpian nickname by the Commander in Chief:  The “Failing” New York Times.

Sen. Cruz Goes Beast Mode When Reporter Goes After His Kids

Published

on

Sen. Cruz’s comments came after day two of the Trump defense in the Senate impeachment trial, where Hunter and Joe Biden were obliterated all day long.

This is the first time in the entire proceeding we have heard, just at the beginning, of the serious evidence of corruption involving Burisma, the Ukrainian natural gas company that paid Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s son, a million dollars a year, while Hunter (Joe) Biden threatened Ukraine to withhold a billion dollars in aid unless and until they fired the prosecutor investigating his son.

We just saw a video which I would encourage every news outlet here to actually show, the video of Joe Biden bragging about how he told the president of Ukraine he was gonna cut off a billion dollars; he was gonna block a billion dollars in foreign aid to Ukraine unless they fired the prosecutor, and in Joe Biden’s own words, “son-of-a-b****, they fired the guy!”

I get that the press loves to obsess over the latest “bombshell.” Listen, I don’t know what John Bolton’s book says or doesn’t say; I’ve seen The New York Times coverage, but at the end of the day, it doesn’t impact the legal issue before this Senate. The legal issue before this Senate is whether a president has the authority to investigate corruption.

So the House managers built their entire case on the proposition that investigating Burisma corruption, investigating the Bidens for corruption, was baseless and a sham. That proposition was absurd; we’ve just seen — they said there wasn’t a shred of evidence concerning corruption. We’ve just seen two hours of evidence, and at a minimum, it was not only reasonable and justified, but the president, I think, had an obligation to investigate corruption that potentially extended to the very highest levels of government.

Secretary of State Pompeo Accuses NPR of Journalistic Malpractice

The feud between Pompeo and National Public Radio goes back several weeks.

Published

on

President Trump has been unrepentant in his assertion that a great deal of the mainstream media is dabbling in what he calls “fake news”, but the latest accusations from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo go beyond even that inflammatory assertion.

Pompeo recently granted an interview to NPR’s Mary Louise Kelly under the assumption that the two would be discussing the geopolitical quagmire that Iran’s recent aggression has conjured.  Instead, the Secretary of State was ambushed by Kelly, who proceeded to inundate Pompeo with impeachment and Ukraine inquiries.

Now, Pompeo is lashing out.

“NPR reporter Mary Louise Kelly lied to me, twice,” Pompeo said in a statement. “First, last month, in setting up our interview and, then again yesterday, in agreeing to have our post-interview conversation off the record.”

“It is shameful that this reporter chose to violate the basic rules of journalism and decency,” he said.

He continued, echoing some of the President’s earlier sentiments.

“This is another example of how unhinged the media has become in its quest to hurt President Trump and this Administration,” he said. “It is no wonder that the American people distrust many in the media when they so consistently demonstrate their agenda and their absence of integrity.”

Kelly lambasted Pompeo after the story erupted, claiming that the State Department head had berated her for her malfeasance, possibly using profanity while doing so.
