Weinstein allegations are not the
first stories ´spiked´ by media

The Hill, by Sharyl Attkisson

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 10/12/2017 10:02:36 AM

Many people seem shocked by claims from a former New York Times reporter who says the newspaper sat on her 2004 information exposing alleged sexual misconduct by Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. (The Times told Newsweek they would have only withheld information for good reason.) The Weinstein question aside, I can tell you that every day, in newsrooms around the country, stories are killed because powerful people know how to get them killed. Recently, a former managing editor of Time magazine said that the only bias reporters have is their bias to get a great story on the front page. That may be

I was hoping for some specifics, but it´s a good account of how things work to distort and suppress news stories. She just didn´t mention one thing -- her own story of being fired.

I´d like to take a moment to remind y´all that if she hadn´t kept the dress, Monica would probably be in St Elizabeth´s right now. The campaign to label a her crazed stalker was already in motion. People who speak up get "spiked" too.

Saudi Arabia gets its

A couple of years ago I attended seminars with Chinese and Israeli counterterrorism experts in Beijing, in my capacity as a board member of a foundation that promotes Sino-Israel relations. A senior Chinese official complained that the Saudi royal family funds every radical madrassa in Xinjiang province, where Muslim Uyghurs of Turkish ethnicity form the majority. With a long and porous border stretching through sparsely-populated lands, Chinese security couldn’t prevent the funds from pouring in. I asked our Chinese hosts why they didn’t remonstrate with the Saudi government. The Chinese official said, “We talk to the Saudis all the time,

DOJ Announces Denaturalization Complaints

Four individuals who pretended to be a family and arrived in the United States from Somalia through the controversial diversity visa program are now the subject of civil complaints seeking their denaturalization, the Department of Justice announced Monday. The complaints were filed by the Department of Justice, Department of State, and Department of Homeland Security, challenging Fosia Abdi Adan, Ahmed Mohamed Warsame, Mustaf Abdi Adan, and Faysal Jama Mire. According to the Justice Department, the four came to the United States claiming to be part of a family, ultimately naturalizing on the basis of this apparently false contention.

The records continue to tumble: It´s only a month since the deadliest single-shooter massacre in American history. Now we have the worst slaughter in Texas history and the deadliest church shooting in US history: Twenty-five people are dead for no other reason that they attended Sunday service in the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs.

A ‘Marxist’ explanation for

‘Red October” was the name for a great Cold War movie. It’s also the name for the Communist takeover of the Russian government on Oct. 26, 1917, when Bolshevik forces stormed the Winter Palace in today’s St. Petersburg. (Snip) We had our own revolution, a year ago. Which makes it a good time to compare Red October with red-state America, the Trump revolution in American politics. I got a heads up about the comparison at a 2015 dinner, when I heard a congressman complain about the members of the House’s rambunctious and very conservative Freedom Caucus. “Right-wing Marxists,” he called them.

SILVER SPRING, Md. (ABC7) — The principal of Montgomery Blair High School believes a flyer posted around her school was meant to incite racial tension. The piece of paper said, “It’s okay to be white.” The flyers were posted on 10 of the school’s doors before class on Wednesday. The person behind it was captured on surveillance video, but a hoodie was blocking the person’s face. “Really? Those type of posters? In a school as diverse as Blair,” asked senior Antoinette Ntomb. School stats show 15 percent of Blair’s student body is Asian, 24 percent are black, and 33 percent are Hispanic. “As a parent,

As Jeff Flake joins Bob Corker in America’s political gimp box, perhaps our betters in the Grand Old Party should reflect on how two of their own came to this sorry end. Well guys, there’s this thing called “loyalty,” and out in America we kind of expect it. You DC dwellers should investigate that concept in depth, not only in order to improve your characters – you guys love babbling about “character,” right? – but to save your useless hides from the electoral accounting that’s coming.

The aftermath of the 2016 election has revealed the criminality of the Democrats, the perfidy of the Deep State, the corruption of the press, and the bought and paid for motives of the scribblers in the conservative pundit class. And Trump won despite all that. In many ways it reminds me of a Soviet operation called The Trust. If you missed Reilly -- Ace of Spies, Edward Jay Epstein describes how the Soviets created a fake anti-Soviet group called The Trust and used it to nab dissidents plotting to overthrow the regime.

There’s a common quote, frequently attributed to G.K. Chesterton: “Don’t ever take a fence down until you know the reason why it was put up.” (Snip) The activist group is now demanding a disclaimer be put up saying Lincoln was complicit in the murder of Native Americans. Why would they be so angry about Lincoln? “Everyone thinks of Lincoln as the great, you know, freer of slaves, but let’s be real: He owned slaves, and as natives, we want people to know that he ordered the execution of native men,” said one of the protesters. “Just to have him here at the top

Investigating the Investigators
American Greatness, by Victor Davis Hanson    Original Article

Despite having both an expansive budget and a large legal team, Special Investigator Robert Mueller likely will not find President Trump culpable for any Russian collusion—or at least no court or congressional vote would, even if Mueller recommends an indictment. That likelihood becomes clearer as the Trump investigators—in Congress, in the Justice Department, and the legions in the media—begin to grow strangely silent about the entire collusion charge, as other scandals mount and crowd out the old empty story. This news boomerang poses the obvious question—was the zeal of the original accusers of felony behavior with the Russian collusion merely an

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has isolated himself from his own department and allowed subordinates to fill a handful of top positions with people who actively opposed Donald Trump’s election, according to current and former State Department officials and national security experts with specific knowledge of the situation. News reports often depict a White House “in chaos.” But the real chaos, according to three State Department employees who spoke with American Greatness on the condition of anonymity, is at Foggy Bottom. Rumors have circulated for months that Tillerson either plans to resign or is waiting for the president to fire him. The

This is not how things are supposed to be. Thomas Kerr, 21, grew up in a high-rise in one of the most deprived parts of Glasgow. Both his parents were drug addicts. From the age of six, it was Thomas who was looking after his mum rather than the other way around. It was a hard life; sometimes there was no proper food in the house, often there was no money. And yet whom did he have a picture of hanging on his bedroom wall? Margaret Thatcher, because Thomas Kerr is a Conservative.

UPDATE 2:14 p.m.: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) called on the party´s nominee for Senate in Alabama, Roy Moore, to withdraw from the race if a new report that he pursued teenage girls in his 30´s is true. "If these allegations are true, he must step aside." The Washington Post published the story about Moore on Thursday. ORIGINAL STORY: Republican senators reacted with alarm to a published report that Roy Moore, the Republican Senate nominee in Alabama, initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl when Moore was 32, the Washington Post reported on Thursday. “It’s a nasty story,

I argued that conservatives should disassociate themselves from Roy Moore and denounce him weeks before credible allegations surfaced today that he preyed on teenage girls, one only 14 years old. So I’m pretty locked-in. I suppose it’s good that some Republicans see this as a bridge too far. But it’s a little hard for me to focus on that upside when you think about what they considered to be acceptable until now. Still, it’s good to know where the line is.

Get rid of ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’

When California lawmakers return to the Capitol in January, the state chapter of the NAACP will be seeking their support for a campaign to remove “The Star-Spangled Banner” as the national anthem. The organization last week began circulating among legislative offices two resolutions that passed at its state conference in October: one urging Congress to rescind “one of the most racist, pro-slavery, anti-black songs in the American lexicon” as the national anthem, and another in support of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who launched a protest movement against police brutality among professional athletes by kneeling when “The Star-Spangled

Maybe it was that whole “low energy” thing. In surprisingly undiplomatic terms for elder statesmen, George W. Bush and his father, George H.W. Bush, bash President Trump in a soon-to-be released book. While both of the former presidents vowed when they left office not to speak ill of their successors — a pledge they’ve kept for the most part — there’s just something about Donald J. Trump that they can’t stand. (Snip) “You can either exploit the anger, incite it, or you can come up with ideas to deal with it.” Jeb offered real solutions, “but it didn’t fit with

The Washington Post is imminently planning to run a piece targeting Judge Roy Moore, claiming that he engaged in inappropriate conduct with four teenage girls thirty-four years ago. The alleged incidents, all of which Moore strongly denies, allegedly took place between 1977 and 1982. Breitbart News obtained details of the forthcoming Post story from the newspaper’s letter detailing the allegations sent to Moore’s campaign for comment. “These allegations are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign,” Moore said in a statement obtained by Breitbart News.

Following a year of layoffs, ESPN is expected to have another round after Thanksgiving. Over 100 staffers could lose their jobs in the layoffs, including positions on the television side, producers, executives and those in digital and technology, according to Sports Illustrated. SportsCenter is expected to be "hit hard" and some on-air talent could be out of a job. ESPN declined to comment to Sports Illustrated about the looming job cuts. Layoffs have been occurring at ESPN multiple times throughout the last two years. In October 2015, the company laid off over 300 employees and this past April over 100

Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (R) has turned down an opportunity to debate his opponent, Doug Jones (D), because the differences between the two candidates are "crystal clear," according to Moore´s campaign. "While we appreciate the invitation from WHNT, the differences between the two candidates are crystal clear," Moore´s campaign chairman, Bill Armistead, said in a statement to WHNT-TV in northern Alabama.

Mr. Corker, a Tennessee Republican and chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee who has repeatedly tussled with Mr. Trump, said members of both parties have questioned what powers the president has to use nuclear weapons. Mr. Corker said it’s been more than four decades since Congress has looked at the issue, and it seemed the time was ripe. “This discussion is long overdue, and we look forward to examining this critical issue,” he

Election 2018: No question about it, the GOP took a real shellacking in Tuesday´s off-year vote, losing key elections in Virginia, New York and New Jersey. Republicans have been put on notice for 2018: Do your job, or go home. Democrats ran what was for them a smart but unprincipled, bare-knuckled campaign. They smeared moderate Republicans as racists and white-power advocates, while largely avoiding making their campaigns about issues. It worked: They won 16 seats in the Virginia legislature and the state´s governorship, re-elected a failed socialist mayor in New York, and took back New Jersey´s gubernatorial mansion from departing Republican
