Sen. Jeff Flake: Trump using
techniques ‘popularized by
Joseph Stalin’ to demonize press

Washington Times, by Ben Wolfgang

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 1/14/2018 12:02:51 PM

President Trump is employing techniques “popularized by Joseph Stalin” to demonize the press and his approach could do great harm to the nation in the long run, Sen. Jeff Flake said Sunday. In an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” the retiring Arizona Republican and outspoken critic of the president said he’s deeply troubled by how Mr. Trump attacks the media. “You can talk about crowd size, and this is pretty innocuous if there’s a falsehood. But when you reflexively refer to the press as the ‘enemy of the people’ or ‘fake news,’ that has real damage,” Mr. Flake said. “It

Comments:
The Democrats at least are honest about their loyalties. Here, a professional establishment Republican wants to keep the USA on its crash course to the hard left, ironically referencing Uncle Joe in the bargain.

You give these clowns the spotlight and they´ll say anything to keep it. No matter how ridiculous. Flake isn´t running again but I bet he never leaves DC. Some lobbying group will hire him. It´s not a swamp, it´s a sewer.

Stalin demonized the press because it tried to tell the truth, DJT demonizes it because it constantly lies. Flake is a moron.

The big difference, Mr. Flake, is the media really are liars and fakers. It has been proven over and over again! So, in this regard, President Trump is more like Abraham Lincoln than Joe Stalin.

#1 - Didn´t Trump write an EO preventing retiring Gov´t employees from being lobbyists for 5 years after retirement?

Stalin didn´t have to demonize the Russian press. They were all employees of the State. Any dissidents were either shot or sent to die in a forced labor camp.

Flake, being a flake, needs to go away. His whimpering and crying is growing quite old. Put on your big boy pants and do your job, if you can´t resign now and don´t be a fool for the rest of your term (that you would have lost in a primary).

Trump tells it as it is and gets things rolling again even after the domestic and foreign policy shambles of the eight-year Benedict Arnold Obama era. Down with the MSM.

funny, I haven´t heard of any newsmen in gulags, at least here in the US, or federal agents disappearing reporters who are never seen again. Calling reporters names is not persecution certainly not Stalinist like behavior. The false stories being pushed by large numbers of the MSM deserve to be be called out and those who create and pass them along deserve to be villified.

Thousands of children could be abused because relatives believe they are witches or possessed by evil spirits in Britain, it has been warned. Experts fear another child will be murdered if efforts to prevent abuse linked to faith and belief are not urgently stepped up, following the horrific deaths of young victims including Kristy Bamu and Ayesha Ali. The first ever Government statistics on the issue showed that witchcraft and possession were linked to almost 1,500 potential abuse cases across the UK in a single year but the figure is thought to be an underestimate. “These beliefs are very real and on

Los Angeles County´s homeless population is increasing faster than the supply of new housing, even with the addition of thousands of beds in the last two years and millions of dollars beginning to flow in from two ballot measures targeting the crisis, according to a long-awaited report by the region´s homelessness agency. The report showed that officials two years ago far underestimated how much new housing would be needed when they asked city and county voters to approve the tax measures.

She could have just asked for an allowance. A Texas teen was the mastermind behind a plot to carjack her dad — just to get some money out of him, Texas authorities said. Deputies said two teen boys carjacked Susan Mize, 16, and her father Friday in their red Nissan — holding them at gunpoint and ordering them to drive home to fork over more cash, according to the Montgomery County Police Reporter. Once at the house, the quick-thinking dad ran inside, locked the door and called 911, cops said. The two men let Mize go and fled in the car before abandoning

The corner of Atlantic and Bedford Avenues in Crown Heights is Ground Zero of this middle-income neighborhood’s high anxiety. For the last two years, neighbors have complained to anyone who will listen that groups of men become an occupying force in the sidewalks around the huge 350-bed Atlantic Armory Men’s Shelter. On several recent mornings, the men were out en masse. Two Department of Homeless Services police officers leaned against the fence outside the 800-bed red-brick shelter. About 50 feet away a man nonchalantly urinated against the facility wall. Across Pacific St., men were sprawled on chairs and milk crates.

Humanitarians traded ´oil, bulgur wheat, tarpaulin or plastic sheeting, medicines, transport, ration cards, loans, education courses and skills training´ with girls aged 13 to 18.

A story claiming Fidel Castro was the father of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is not true. The Canadian government denied it, Cuba has never claimed it and Trudeau´s parents didn´t Cuba until several years after Trudeau was born. The February 1 suicide of Castro´s oldest son, Fidelito, spurred the most recent report on several sites, claiming that Fidelito left a suicide note referring to Justin Trudeau as his half-brother. A theory that Castro was Trudeau´s father was also shared widely on social media after Castro´s death in 2016, when Trudeau caused an uproar over remarks praising the late Cuban leader.

Japan accepted just 20 asylum seekers last year – despite a record 19,628 applications – drawing accusations that the country is unfairly closing its door on people in genuine need. Since 2010, Japan has granted work permits to asylum seekers with valid visas to work while their refugee claims were reviewed, a change the government says has fuelled a dramatic rise in “bogus” applications from people who are simply seeking work.

Albany, N.Y. — New York state would make it illegal for police officers to have sex with people in their custody under a proposal gaining momentum in Albany. The idea picked up the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday, who said he’ll amend his state budget proposal to include language saying that people in police custody cannot legally give consent to engage in sexual activity. Current law bars sex between correctional officers and inmates, but it doesn’t apply to police and people in their custody. Cuomo, a Democrat, called that omission an “egregious loophole” that must be closed.
