Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones hemmed and hawed when pressed repeatedly by Megyn Kelly to admit he was wrong to call the Sandy Hook massacre a hoax. But the controversial Infowars host never gave a direct answer in a segment on Sunday night on NBC´s Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly. Kelly had been plagued with intense criticism for giving a platform to Jones - with critics labeling the decision to air the interview on Father´s Day as ´disgusting´ and ´shameful´. Yet following the show, many on Twitter applauded the NBC host for the interview that Jones had earlier tried to discredit
Is this high school? She was dressed in a simple, unadorned, high-necked black dress, later in a black, not low-cut, V-necked dress. As for the interview, it turned out better than I expected. She had a relaxed, and fair, conversation with Mr. Jones.
Megyn is doing the President a favor. The sooner such sick, conspiracy-minded individuals are exposed to the light and phased out of his presidency, and thinking, the better for his legacy.
P.S. I´ve read the allegations about Sandy Hook and think that if people are looking for something, they can find it.
The Sandy Hook incident occurred during the Obama administration and once Fast & Furious was exposed people started questioning everything that happened while that corrupt bunch was in power. A hoax in this case would be an impossible thing to pull off but it does fit in with the other outrageous things they tried to spin that turned out to be complete lies, like Ferguson, Benghazi, the Navy swift boat capture by the Iranians, the Stimulus, the Arab Spring, electric cars, relations with Cuba, etc. When somebody stabs you in the back once, you tend to turn around and look for the knife every time.
Sandy Hook was no hoax, it was a major tragedy, (imho at least in part due to psychiatric drugs which seem to have been a constant in a number of similar tragedies). But indeed as the above poster mentioned, the Obama Administration was lawless, and with willing media accomplices, did lie (it went beyond spin) to the American people about many major incidents over the last eight years.
As for Jones, he says many things that are true, and then destroys his own credibility by claiming things that are outrageous, false and terribly offensive.
As for Kelly, she is an incredibly beautiful woman with a poisonous mind. Shame on Fox and NBC for giving her an ostensibly legitimate platform. By right she belongs on one of those "Real Housewives..." tv shows.
The US needs a voice like atones. When you have CNNMSNBCABCCNNFOX lies now, there isn´t a voice of opposition. And with respect to Rush, Sean and others on the right, they are mouthpieces of the RNC telling us the central message "Democrats are evil".
Back when FOX was actually news, the only place to get alternative media was from the John Birch flyers at DFw. Then Chuck Harder started the People´s Radio Network reporting about Ruby Ridge, the truth about Waco up until he left the market due to death threats and bankruptcy.
Nature abhors vacuums and gave rise to Alex Jones. For kicks, I started listening to him in 2005. For the most part, he´s harmless. But it seems that he got a bite during the recent campaign and is now a threat. LOL. I remember when Rush wasn´t a threat, and then they went after him, how Bill OReilly wasn´t a threat, and now he´s gone, Sean was recently attacked. Now AJ.
Sure, he´s a kook of the first order. But you have to wonder why they are trying to take him out? Is it because he´s sometimes right? Exposes the crimes of the government?
Former president Barack Obama is making his first campaign foray of 2017, agreeing to stump for Democrat Ralph Northam in his bid to be Virginia’s next governor. David Turner, a spokesman for Northam, said the former president agreed this week to hit the campaign trail for Northam, but said he wouldn’t “go into any further detail about the private conversations that Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam had with President Barack Obama.” An aide to Obama confirmed that the former president agreed to campaign for Northam during a congratulatory call, although no events have been planned. The HuffPost first reported Obama’s plans
Donald Trump turned his first ever Congressional Picnic into a family fair on Thursday evening, with the President, his wife Melania and daughter Ivanka all letting their hair down for a night of celebration. Photographs from White House´s South Lawn showed Melania kissing babies as she and her husband mingled with people in attendance. Meanwhile, Ivanka played with her daughter, Arabella, in the Rose Garden. Melania was wearing a $2,255 Mary Katrantzou ´osmond grid´ print dress on the night. Scroll down for video (Photos) The president also shook hands on the lawn, which had been decorated to look like Manhattan´s Central Park
LOS ANGELES— Stephen Colbert is on a mission to Russia. The host of CBS’ “The Late Show” is on assignment there for a future broadcast, the network said Thursday. Colbert, whose steady political wisecracks have been accompanied by a rise in his ratings, wasted no time in taking a dig at President Donald Trump over the possibility of tapes involving fired FBI Director James Comey. “Don’t worry, Mr. President. I’m in Russia. If the “tapes” exist, I’ll bring you back a copy!” Colbert tweeted. His message came after Trump said on Twitter that he has no recordings of his private conversations with
Three weeks ago, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said it dishonors God to pull out of the Paris Accord on climate change, but today she did not say it dishonors God to abort a baby with a beating heart. At Pelosi´s press briefing on Thursday, CNSNews.com asked Pelosi if her understanding of what dishonors God extends to aborting a baby with a beating heart as well as pulling out of the Paris Accord; CNSNews.com: "Three weeks ago you said we need to be ´responsible stewards´ of ´God´s creation.´" Pelosi: Yes. CNSNews.com: "And that it dishonors God to pull out of
Jane Sanders, wife of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), has hired attorneys to represent her in a Department of Justice probe of her time as president of Burlington College. A former Burlington employee who coordinated the school’s response to an FBI subpoena in February 2016 said that she was contacted by Sanders´s lawyers, VT Digger reports. The probe concerns a land deal Sanders conducted while she was president. Coralee Holm, the former employee, said that the lawyers "wanted information on what I had been asked by the FBI. They were trying to get clarification on what the accusations are because
President Trump, First-Lady Melania Trump, Vice-President Mike Pence and Second-Lady Karen Pence together with their families, celebrated fellowship at the annual White House congressional picnic earlier this evening. (Video) …”We’ve gotten to know many of you over the last weeks and months, and developed many friendships… with politicians, can you believe it? And some really great people I have to say, mostly, mostly… a couple of bad ones, but that’s ok”… LOLOL
[…] John Anzalone, Ossoff’s pollster, said the Democrat’s campaign succeeded in turning out its voters — but they were swamped by Republicans who came out in numbers that ended up dwarfing previous high-profile special elections (link) That’s a very interesting admission/statement for a Politico article. That’s also an example of what happens when President Trump’s ‘Monster Vote‘ turns out. (Politico) Jon Ossoff was on a trajectory to defeat Karen Handel narrowly, poised to deliver a humiliating blow to the White House in a race billed as a referendum of Donald Trump’s early months in office. Then the Republican voters in
President Trump on Thursday evening offered continued support for House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), who is recovering from last week´s baseball shooting. "Tonight our thoughts and prayers remain with one friend who is not here, a man that we have all come to know, and respect and to love, congressman Steve Scalise," Trump said during the annual congressional picnic on the South Lawn of the White House. Trump noted that the House GOP leader´s son and daughter were in attendance at the event Thursday evening. "We just gave them a tour of the White House, just gave them a beautiful
When asked if he supports President Donald Trump’s proposal to eliminate federal funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) said today that that topic was the sort of “micro-detail” he did not get involved in. In his budget proposal for fiscal year 2018, which begins on Oct. 1, 2017, President Trump calls for eliminating CPB funding entirely--starting by cutting its funding from the $484 million it is getting this fiscal year to $30 million in fiscal 2018. At Speaker Ryan’s press briefing on Thursday, CNSNews.com asked: “President Trump´s 2018 budget calls for eliminating federal
President Obama has been out of office only a few months. But he might have both a street and an L.A. freeway named after him soon. Los Angeles City Council President Herb Wesson has proposed renaming Rodeo Road in southwest L.A. “Obama Boulevard” in honor of the president. Wesson noted that Obama held a campaign rally at Rancho Cienega Park on Rodeo Road when running for president and that the area already has streets named after presidents (Washington, Jefferson, Adams). In May, a plan to name a stretch of the 134 Freeway after Obama moved forward with approval from the
President Donald Trump tweeted Thursday that he was “very supportive” of the Senate health care bill unveiled that morning. (Tweet) The text of the bill, titled the “Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017,” was made public Thursday, more than a month after the House passed its own bill, the American Health Care Act (AHCA). The two bills closely mirror each other, by the Senate version includes a slower rollout and a potentially “more generous” tax credit regime. As Speaker of the House Paul Ryan also expressed a positive view of the bill on its release, it may stand a good
Most illegal immigrants who pay taxes have stolen someone else’s legal identity, and the IRS doesn’t do a very good job of letting those American citizens and legal immigrants know they’re being impersonated, the tax agency’s inspector general said in a new report released Thursday. The theft creates major problems for the American citizens and legal foreign workers whose identities are stolen, and who have to deal with explaining money they never earned. But the IRS only manages to identify half of the potentially 1.4 million people likely affected by the fraud in 2015, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax
Turns out…money can’t buy you love. Or a House seat in Georgia’s 6th District. Democrats pulled out all stops in their effort to show that the #Resistance isn’t just about marches and slogans and insulting the president, but also about flipping the House in 2018. They poured tens of millions of dollars into what became the most expensive House race ever, trying to elect 30-year-old nonentity Jon Ossoff to fill the seat of HHS head Tom Price. They cast the race as a referendum on Donald Trump, and a bellwether for 2018. Republicans will be elated with the outcome, and hopeful
On June 8, Lisa Durden, a producer, filmmaker and media commentator, arrived at Essex County College in Newark to teach her speech class. It was the closing days of the summer session and Durden was already set for the fall semester. She was listed as a returning adjunct professor to teach mass communication and popular culture and two effective speech courses. Two days before, she had appeared as a political commentator on the Fox News show "Tucker Carlson Tonight," invited to give her opinion as to why Black Lives Matter organizers held a Memorial Day event in Brooklyn for black people only. When
MISSISSAUGA, Ont. -- Video of a woman demanding for her son to be seen by a "white doctor" at a walk-in clinic in Ontario has gone viral. CTV Toronto reports the four-minute argument was recorded by a patient in the waiting room at the Rapid Access to Medical Specialists clinic on Sunday. In the video, an employee is heard explaining to the woman that a "white doctor" would not be available until 4 p.m. to see her child. To which she responds, "So you´re saying in the whole entire building there isn´t one white doctor? You´re telling me my kid has chest
Jon Ossoff was on a trajectory to defeat Karen Handel narrowly, poised to deliver a humiliating blow to the White House in a race billed as a referendum of Donald Trump’s early months in office. Then the Republican voters in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District unexpectedly showed up in droves. Pollsters say sky-high turnout drove Handel, the GOP nominee, to a nearly 4-point victory on Tuesday, despite most pre-election surveys showing Ossoff with a small-but-shrinking lead. Mathematically, a 4-point loss for a Democratic House candidate in a district that has traditionally elected Republicans by wide margins is an encouraging result for
(Facebook) - Former President Barack Obama took to Facebook to ask Republicans to reconsider their efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare. "I recognize that repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act has become a core tenet of the Republican Party," Obama wrote. "Still, I hope that our senators, many of whom I know well, step back and measure what’s really at stake, and consider that the rationale for action, on health care or any other issue, must be something more than simply undoing something that Democrats did." He argued that the Republican health care bill
A city on Mars with a million inhabitants could be achievable within 50 years, the space entrepreneur Elon Musk has forecast, as he laid out plans to turn mankind into a multi-planetary species. The SpaceX founder warned that humans would need to venture away from Earth to avoid a ‘Doomsday event’ and our ‘eventual extinction.’ But he said that a huge Martian city could be established this century, which would not just be an outpost, but a fully functioning society with ‘iron foundries and pizza joints.’
Ed Morrissey may be on vacation but he’s still keeping his ear to the door of American politics. He popped up on Twitter this morning, searching for his dictionary to look up the definition of “chutzpah.” The reason for his apparent confusion was a rather off-putting interview with Georgia-06 Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff conducted by NPR’s Rachel Martin. The subject of the massive, record-breaking amount of cash dumped into this race couldn’t be avoided, so Martin asked Ossoff to weigh in. He did so, but his take on the subject rang a bit hollow to say the least. (Emphasis added
As a resident of Hollywood, CA, I didn´t exactly see crying in the streets, but I did "feel their pain," as the saying goes. According to (where else?) Variety, the local entertainment industry went in big time in support of Jon Ossoff, the jejune sometime documentarian, in his quest to win the election in Georgia´s sixth congressional district. Rosie O’Donnell [ je suis shockay], Jane Fonda, Jessica Lange, Sean Daniel, Connie Britton, Sam Waterston and Kyra Sedgwick are among those who have donated to Democrat Jon Ossoff’s campaign, while others have been participating in phone banks to get out the vote and
Despite receiving an invitation to meet with President Trump, members of the Congressional Black Caucus have reportedly chosen to decline, per Politico. Both Trump and the Congressional Black Caucus met in March to discuss issues important to CBC members, yet many in the Caucus felt as if little to no progress has been made since that meeting three months ago and that any subsequent meeting would be merely lip service. One Democratic aide illustrated the thinking of some in the Congressional Black Caucus saying, “No one wants to be a co-star on the reality show.” Former “Apprentice” star Omarosa Manigault,
In a year that he would like to forget, which included his acrimonious divorce to Amber Heard, Johnny Depp appeared at a Q&A at the new Cinemageddon stage at Glastonbury. Introducing his 2004 film The Libertine, about a 17th-century poet who notoriously drank himself to an early death, the 54-year-old chose to discuss American politics. "I think [Donald] Trump needs help," he said. "There are a lot of dark places he could go." He added: "I´m not insinuating anything - by the way this will be in the press and it will be horrible - but when was the last
SANDY SPRINGS, Georgia—After $50 million and a congressional contest bigger than some presidential primaries, the special election in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District to replace Rep. Tom Price ended up where it began, with the Republican House seat still in Republican hands and national Democrats still looking for a way to turn the resistance to Donald Trump into a victory at the polls. (Snip) On the Democratic side, the combined efforts of the Ossoff campaign, the DNC, and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee help build a monster operation unprecedented in Georgia Democratic politics. By the end of the race, they had
Illinois is like Venezuela now, a fiscally broken state that has lost its will to live, although for the moment, we still have enough toilet paper. But before we run out of the essentials, let´s finally admit that after decade upon decade of taxing and spending and borrowing, Illinois has finally run out of other people´s money. Those "other people" include taxpayers who´ve abandoned the state. And now Illinois faces doomsday. So as the politicians meet in Springfield this week for another round of posturing and gesturing and blaming, we need a plan.
