Trump ignited a political firestorm yesterday during an impromptu press conference in which he said there was "blame on both sides" for the tragic events that occurred in Charlottesville over the weekend. Now, the discovery of a craigslist ad posted last Monday, almost a full week before the Charlottesville protests, is raising new questions over whether paid protesters were sourced by a Los Angeles based "public relations firm specializing in innovative events" to serve as agitators in counterprotests. The ad was posted by a company called "Crowds on Demand" and offered $25 per hour to "actors and photographers"
There will always be a lie at the center of a leftist cause. From Roe v. Wade to the "Affordable" Care Act the lie is essential to getting what they want.
Here, it´s a crowd of aggrieved people whose lifelong struggle against daily racial attacks must be avenged. Except their not really aggrieved people whose lifelong struggle against daily racial attacks must be avenged.
They´re actors hired to serve a purpose.
In the 60´s the ACLU went all the way to the Supreme Court representing Nazi White Supremacists demanding that they be allowed to raly in Skokie, Ilinois, where many Holocaust survivors lived. They won and the Nazi´s held their rally. People who actually lived through the horror protested but did not get violent. The Nazi march was a wimper now long forgotten.
I turned everything off today except Lucianne, even Rush (and I never miss Rush) not because he was saying anything himself but he was replaying clips from the moron´s who feel the need to weigh in. From Mitt Romney to Kaschic, McConnell and Ryan etc. All want it known that THEY don´t like White Supremacists. Wow...that´s so brave.
Donald Trump has a 50 year track record in the public eye. NEVER in that time has he been accused of racism in his business.
I can´t take this piling on any more. I´m getting physically sick listening to all of this.
I agree with above posters especially #6, who is sick and tired of the hatred and those trying to keep the Trump agenda non-existent. I can´t watch news anymore even Fox Business tonight had lefties on and they´re gloating.
Charlotte NC to Charlottesville, VA is 271.7 miles, 4.5 hr drive with good traffic. If I were hiring a rent a mob, I would not hire locals, but people in cities in a different state within an easy day´s drive.
Whether your organization is lobbying to move forward a healthcare, financial or other social initiative, we can organize rallies and get media attention for your causes and candidates. We also assist individuals, companies and political organizations with protests and picketing campaigns. We’ve protested governments, corporations and everything in between. We’ve achieved results on campaigns on everything from ending institutional discrimination in a religious organization to getting refunds and compensation for hundreds of homeowners who bought hazardous land from a real estate firm to forcing a patent trolling company to back down. Some of these campaigns are long and drawn out while others can be resolved quickly. Regardless, we endeavor to deliver campaigns that bring out the best qualities of our clients’ messages and to achieve tangible results.
They cite an example:
A foreign government hired Crowds on Demand to help generate a positive reception for its newly elected leader during the UN General Assembly. The concern was ensuring that the leader was well received by a US audience and confident for his work at the UN. We created demonstrations of support with diverse crowds. We also used the media primarily local and national outlets to bring more attention to these demonstrations which led to a mostly positive portrayal. The crowds that we deployed drew in more supporters creating a strong presence for this leader at the UN and an improved perception of him by the American public.
Could it be that "actors" were planted in both groups to assure that violence would be started and escalated? I hope AG Sessions and his investigative team are not naive when they delve into what happened in Charlottesville. The whole thing sounds like a set-up.
Follow the money and find out who hired the rent a mob company and then back track again and again to discover who was paying the tab and my bet is it ends up as George Soros whose writing the checks. It´s all part of the resistance movement which is Hillary and Bernies home group.
Sometimes President Trump doesn´t say enough, or offer examples to support what he says. When the girl got killed by the crazy lad from Ohio, the counter-protesters immediately began beating on his car with baseball bats, clubs, and cudgels. The President should have shown that video, to support his argument that the violence was on both sides.
This is no surprise. This is precisely what Lenin did in St. Petersburg in 1917. He gave a mob of thugs the equivalent of $20 US dollars and told them to burn street cars, break windows, set fires, beat police, etc. Shortly thereafter the Romanovs were murdered and Communism triumphed.
No longer a "soft coup" - this is the real thing and it should be identified as such. The MSM and Democrats / communists are sore losers and won´t stop until Trump is gone. Keep the faith, they can´t wear Trump down.
#7 I remember saying in a prior post that they looked like central casting had sent a rogue´s gallery of villains from a Mel Brooks movie. I also said the multi-colored KKK hoods were a nice touch. They were.
Real simple...aren´t a Mob. ...and don´t think the mob is not told exactly what to do and how. Then the Democrap politicians and police pile on to create an outcome they want. Then the Presstitutes jump in and the fraud is complete. Hey Project Veritas., you should infiltrate all of these thugs and blow their ´cover´. Once the real Americans see what/how the Leftists are staging all of this they will be called out...remember what happened to Acorn...an inside look at the fraud is all it will take. Then I would expect the DoJ to prosecute leadership!
The leaders are communists. The pols, the crowds, the media, the actors, are the pawns. Chaos is how they win. The statue removal is just to get us stirred up. If you think about the logical extension of their movement, the South is looking at trouble. Isn´t it the "slave owner states?" Just a taunt. It´s the communists and they know how to use our laws against us. It´s not Russia, or the Soviet dream of "dig you in" whatever that meant. It is our own Marx´s dream. We can only stamp it out with our laws. Communism, like maggots thriving in something dead, grows in chaos. Law must confront them, fairly and honestly, but it must act.
Ask any Prosecutor why the real power behind crimes have no "blood" on their hands and they´ll tell you they hire surrogates to do their dirty work and take the fall in case something goes wrong. Jerry Brown is an ideal stooge Rat because he is: 1) Too old to go to prison 2) A leftist, supreme 3) Governor in the most leftist State in the west.
Good luck getting a RICO charge to stick against him! However, hiring in one State (NC) for riots in another is a Federal crime. The FBI needs to investigate immediately. AG Jeff Sessions where are you??
FTA: The CEO of Crowds on Demand denied to Snopes that his firm was involved in the Charlottesville protests but refused to provide details on the specific purpose of the craigslist ad and/or why it was temporarily removed yesterday before being restored.
"We were not involved in any capacity with the recent tragic events in Charlottesville, Virginia. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those impacted by the violence."
North Korea learned this week Chinese banks will no longer do business with the Hermit Kingdom, in the strongest sign yet pressure from the Trump administration to choke off funding to the rogue nation is working. Chinese banks received a document Monday stating they should halt financial services and loans to new and existing North Korean customers as a result of strict U.N. sanctions passed earlier this month, a source told Reuters on Thursday. “Our bank is fulfilling our international obligations and implementing United Nations sanctions against North Korea. As such, we refuse to handle any individual loans connected
In about a week Round #3 of NAFTA renegotiations begin in Canada. Dispute settlement and country of origin rules are widely anticipated to be key points of disagreement. For those who follow trade and economics closely, the latest Trump trade policy outline from U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer is buckets of good news. President Trump, Commerce Secretary Ross and USTR Lighthizer willing to confront the World Trade Organization (WTO), the epicenter of multinational economics and globalism.
Hillary Clinton says she made a mistake when she gave speeches on Wall Street after leaving government. Taking money from banks, she writes in her new memoir, created the impression she was in their pocket. Her old boss doesn’t seem to share her concern. Last month, just before her book “What Happened” was published, Barack Obama spoke in New York to clients of Northern Trust Corp. for about $400,000, a person familiar with his appearance said. Last week, he reminisced about the White House for Carlyle Group LP, one of the world’s biggest private equity firms, according to two people who were there.
Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) sought a deal with the White House that would grant WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange a pardon or other act of clemency in exchange for information that he said would absolve Russia of blame for the hacking of Democratic email accounts, according to a Wall Street Journal report. In a phone call with White House chief of staff John Kelly on Wednesday, Rohrabacher, who has long made favorable comments about Russia, said that the deal would involve President Trump issuing a pardon or "something like that" to Assange. Asssange´s WikiLeaks published some of the emails obtained through Russian-backed
So President Trump calls the leadership of the Republicans and Democrats into the Oval Office today for a meeting about what to do about the debt ceiling and funding the government, and he promptly does something that Washington should’ve expected, but didn’t because they’re locked in to bad conventional wisdom: he overruled his aides to side with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi over Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan. The pivot is real, and it’s spectacular. Ryan and McConnell were flabbergasted.
Blacklists are ugly things. They’re how you terrorize and intimidate people. They’re a weapon of hate. And Color of Change, an extremist group, is using blacklists to smear all conservatives as racists. Color of Change, the organization founded by Van Jones, a 9/11 Truther and former Communist, has circulated a blacklist to PayPal, Discover, Visa, Master Card and American Express that falsely and libelously groups together a black Harlem church, the David Horowitz Freedom Center, an ex-Muslim organization, Jihad Watch and others as “white supremacists” alongside actual Neo-Nazis. But Color of Change’s definition of “white supremacist” is Republican. “We must hold every enabler
A Muslim apostate and high profile campaigner against both female genital mutilation (FGM) and forced marriage has been suspended from micro-blogging platform Twitter, amidst a wider crackdown on right wing voices on the website, and other online platforms like Facebook. Twitter users noticed the prolific writer and campaigner had vanished from the platform Friday. Hobbs had previously spoken at the Unite Against Hate ‘Gays Against Sharia’ march in Manchester, where she spoke out against Muslim rape gangs preying on young white girls.
Yes, the MSM has admitted they got 2016 exactly wrong and that they are out-of-touch with the average American. What truly terrifies the media about 2016, though, is something that has remained largely unspoken. It is what Trump’s victory said so clearly about the MSM’s inability to influence public opinion and, by extension, the outcome of elections. What has also remained unspoken is the media’s desperate and dangerous reaction to this waning influence. As a 25 year media-watcher, I have never seen anything close to the propaganda campaign the national media launched to defeat Donald Trump last year. It was 24/7,
Sources are reporting on an email letter focused on unseating Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell sent by Senate Conservatives Action, a political action committee. The letter was signed by the former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccineli, who is now president of the PAC. NBC reported that political operative, pundit, and author Roger Stone circulated the letter, which NBC reported on but did not include a link to or a copy of the letter.
The Archbishop of Strasbourg Luc Ravel, nominated by Pope Francis in February, just declared that "Muslim believers know very well that their fertility is such today, that they call it... the Great Replacement. They tell you in a very calm, very positive way: One day all this, all this will be ours...". Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán just warned against a "Muslimized Europe". According to him, "the question of the upcoming decades is whether Europe will continue to belong to Europeans". "In the coming 30 years, the number of Africans will grow by more than one billion people. That is
A very familiar pattern is emerging as President Trump turns his attention toward solving the ongoing issues within Afghanistan. A very uniquely Trumpian geopolitical strategy based on assigned ownership, economics and self-interest. Last night as President Trump addressed the nation to discuss the ongoing conflict within Afghanistan he took the first step: Trump assigned strategic ownership to Pakistan: […] “The next pillar of our new strategy is to change the approach in how to deal with Pakistan. We can no longer be silent about Pakistan’s safe havens for terrorist organizations, the Taliban, and other groups that pose a threat to
The ‘big ugly’ is inevitable. We all know it. The only thing yet to be determined is the timing. My spidey hunch tells me there are multiple possible detonation moments depending on sequencing. Today, President Trump violates Mitch McConnell and Chuck Schumer’s golden rule regarding incumbent Senators. President Trump tweeted support for a challenger:
Hillary Clinton compared herself to Revolutionary War hero Paul Revere on Tuesday, saying that she is “Paula Revere” sounding the alarm on Russian active measures during the 2016 presidential campaign. (Snip) In her interview, Clinton suggested that she has led the push to call out the Russian government and Russian president Vladimir Putin about their involvement in the U.S. election. “I am saying as clearly as I can — I feel like I’m a bit of a, you know, Paula Revere — I’m trying to sound the alarm about this,” Clinton said to a smattering of laughter and applause. Clinton’s
If you had plans for the weekend, a Christian numerologist says you won’t get to them because the world is about to end. David Meade, a self-proclaimed “researcher,” is predicting that a series of apocalyptic events will begin on Sept. 23 and, “a major part of the world will not be the same.” According to Meade, the mysterious rogue planet Nibiru, also known as Planet X, is on a collision course with Earth, which will bring world-ending tsunamis and earthquakes. The numerologist claims the dates of recent events like the Great American Solar Eclipse and Hurricane Harvey’s flooding of Texas were all marked in the Bible.
If NFL fans continue to turn away from football, the TV networks could lose as much as $200 million in earnings, according to a new report. After ratings for Week Two crashed, adding to the angst already felt by a poor showing in Week 1, industry insiders and analysts are sounding the alarm. A new report claims that CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC could take a $200 million hit to their estimated $2.5 billion in NFL advertising earnings if fans continue to turn off the TV, the The Hollywood Reporter noted recently. The worries over earnings are not allayed by
A new fifth grade teacher at Canopy Oaks Elementary is asking students to use gender-neutral pronouns in the classroom. Math and science teacher Chloe Bressack sent the request home in a letter to parents headlined "About Mx. Bressack." “... my pronouns are ´they, them, their´ instead of ´he, his, she, hers.´ I know it takes some practice for it to feel natural,” the letter reads, “but students catch on pretty quickly.” The letter also asks that students use “Mx.," (pronounced ´Mix´) when addressing the teacher rather than Mr. or Ms. The note alarmed some parents. In a post written Tuesday night in the Facebook group
ABC has greenlit a new sitcom tentatively titled "Sanctuary Family" about an undocumented family living in the U.S. The network says the show will follow the pandemonium that unfolds when a married couple allows their undocumented nanny and her family to live with them. The guests put a strain on the marriage of the host family but they eventually learn that “the differences both families have aren’t as significant as their similarities,” according to the description provided by ABC. Undocumented immigrants are foreign-born people who don’t have a legal right to be or remain in the United States and the
Democratic Rep. John Lewis said Thursday he sometimes feels like “taking a bullwhip” to people in order to make them care about civil rights. “It doesn’t matter whether they’re black, or white, Latino, Asian-American or Native American. When you see something that’s not right, not fair, not just, you have an obligation to do something, to say something. They’re just too darn quiet. I really wanna use some other words sometimes,” Lewis told the audience of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Town Hall on Civil Rights in Washington, D.C. “I believe in the philosophy and the discipline of nonviolence, but sometimes
A team of four current and former NFL players is lobbying commissioner Roger Goodell to engage the league in fighting for the cause of social justice, even asking him to formally designate November as activism awareness month. Current players Michael Bennett (Seattle Seahawks), Torrey Smith (Philadelphia Eagles), and Malcolm Jenkins (Philadelphia Eagles), along with former player Anquan Boldin, sent Goodell and another executive a 2,800-word memorandum in August requesting the league invest significant resources in the cause. The memo, available in full here, is specific and thoughtful, but its requests would almost certainly prove divisive among fans, many of whom are
Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel used his opening monologue Thursday to once again lambast supporters of the Graham-Cassidy health care bill -- and at one point called a Republican senator from Louisiana an "inbred." The host of ABC´s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” has emerged as a strong celebrity advocate for universal health care since his infant son had to undergo open-heart surgery in April. Kimmel made an announcement about his son during a memorable monologue at the time and has taken up the cause ever since. Part of his goal is for every child in the U.S. to have the same access to
U2 frontman Bono unloaded on President Donald Trump in a Rolling Stone interview published Wednesday, revealing that his Irish rock band’s new album will take on the “bully on the bully pulpit” because “silence is not an option.” In January, U2 founding guitarist The Edge revealed that “Songs of Experience,” the band’s follow-up to its platinum-selling 2014 album “Songs of Innocence,” was delayed because of Trump’s election. Now Bono says “there’s a couple of reasons why we delayed Songs of Experience. One personal, one political.” “The world around us was certainly changing out of all recognition, we nearly lost the
Lawrence O’Donnell had a really bad night on August 29, 2017.We draw that conclusion based on the above clip obtained by Mediaite, showing behind the scenes footage of a furious O’Donnell absolutely going bananas in what appear to be breaks in his show.The video, which lasts a full eight minutes, is a collection of clips from one evening (given O’Donnell’s consistent outfit) and show the MSNBC anchor fuming about earpiece malfunctions, blasting off obscenities and screaming at his staff. We were able to link it back to the August 29 show. After introducing a clip about President Donald Trump, O’Donnell pauses,
Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper suggested on Wednesday that "it´s possible" that President Trump´s voice was picked up in a wiretap as he spoke with his former campaign manager Paul Manafort. "It´s certainly conceivable," Clapper said on CNN. When asked by host Don Lemon if it was likely, Clapper said he couldn´t say, but again asserted that there is a chance. "I wouldn´t want to go there, but I will say it´s possible," Clapper said. (Video) A CNN report earlier in the week said that Manafort had been wiretapped under a FISA warrant over suspicions that Manafort had encouraged some
The San Francisco 49ers Thursday night game against the Los Angeles Rams kicked off in front of a nearly empty stadium. Los Angeles Times reporter Lindsey Thiry tweeted a photo at the time of kickoff, which showed thousands of open seats. In fact, most sections in the photo have more empty seats than fans. (Tweet/Photo/Video) ESPN’s Darren Rovell reported that 63,500 tickets had been sold for the game, but of course, simply selling a ticket doesn’t mean the buyer will actually show up to the game. It’s hard to believe there are more than 30,000 people in the stadium, judging
