CNN is fake news: story about Hannity refuted by Juan Williams

CNN and the rest of the mainstream media — whom I term the American Media Maggots — just don’t get it. Nor will they ever.

First, the story from CNN:

Sources: Sean Hannity once pulled a gun on Juan Williams

by Dylan Byers

Sean Hannity is surrounded by jackasses.

The Wall Street Journal columnist who called Hannity the “dumbest anchor” on Fox News is a “jackass,” according to Hannity. The forensic psychologist who suggested a blood vessel had popped inside Hannity’s brain is a “jackass.” Even the conservative MSNBC host who sometimes criticizes President Donald Trump is a “jackass.”

If you criticize Hannity, or the Trump administration, there is a fair chance he will call you a “jackass” on Twitter. The chances of being called a “jackass” by Hannity are significantly higher late at night. Of the 21 people Hannity called a “jackass” in the last year, nearly half were told off between 9 p.m and 2 a.m.

Seems to me that Byers is calling Hannity a “drunk Twitterer.” Isn’t that what you make of it as well?

Hannity, Trump’s biggest backer on television, has said this is entertainment for him: “I am a counterpuncher,” he told one Twitter user who asked why he was so antagonistic. “I do not start fights but I finish them. This is pure entertainment for me. If people take cheap shots I hit back.”

Still, Hannity’s version of entertainment can go too far. Last year, after ending one of his many spirited on-air arguments with liberal contributor Juan Williams, Hannity pulled out a gun and pointed it directly at Williams, according to three sources with knowledge of the incident. He even turned on the laser sight, causing a red dot to bob around on Williams’ body. (Hannity was just showing off, the sources said, but the unforeseen off-camera antic clearly disturbed Williams and others on set.)

So is this true? And did the author, Dylan Byers, go directly to the first-hand source, Juan Williams himself? I would have. I’m certain you would have. I was a journalist at one time in my callow youth, working for McClatchy Broadcasting and also stringing as a photographer for the Sacramento Bee.

Williams issued a statement. Hannity issued a statement. But as a CNN journalist or, hell, any journalist in general, wouldn’t you want to get a statement yourself directly from the sources involved? Who knows what you’d get?

Because, after all, what an amazing “get” it would be to have Hannity refuse to make a comment and, simultaneously, after a bit of time had passed, Juan Williams decide to actually open up to you. An admission. Perhaps a confession.

But no. CNN is just pleased as punch that Mr Byers stopped being inquisitive. As George Bush was accused of, so possesses, apparently, Mr Byers. An incurious mind.

But wait; there’s more. From Breitbart.com, I found these copies of associated Tweets.

These are the Tweets written by Juan Williams.

Williams refutes the nature of the incident. Further, this is Juan Williams supporting and defending Sean Hannity.

If it were true that Hannity pulled a gun on Juan Williams as alleged, after all, how grand would it be to have Williams completely confirm the story of Dylan Byers, tell all that he was forced to support Hannity by the Fox administration if he wished to keep his job, and then leave Fox News for refusing to play along?

Trust me: it would make Juan Williams the new darling of Leftists, Demorats and the American Media Maggots nationally. The story would be covered for weeks, non-stop.

Williams would be able to name his network, name his show and name his salary.

But it didn’t go that way.

Why not?

CNN’s Trump Derangement Syndrome, Pt. XLIV

Fear not good people, TDS — Trump Derangement Syndrome — is alive and well and, if drinking a carbonated beverage, will still make you spew it out your nose in laughter.

First, let’s look at the story from an — ahem — MSM viewpoint, as Philly.com writes:

CNN host Fareed Zakaria gets profane in uncensored Trump discussion

by Rob Tornoe

Late Friday night, CNN host Fareed Zakaria had some complaints about President Trump that revolved around one word in particular.

My. What might that be?

Appearing beside host Don Lemon on CNN Tonight in a discussion about the president’s unsubstantiated claims that President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the election, a frustrated Zakaria said Trump is “indifferent” to the truth before launching into a profanity-laced comment about the commander-in-chief.

Ah, the buttery goodness of the informed, cogent, rational, level-headed, sensitive, well-grounded cadre of Leftists.

After all, everyone knows emesis of that nature advances the argument of mainstream media outlets.

Right?

AG Sessions pulls the first swamp drain-plug, asking Obama attorneys to vacate

From Reuters.com:

Sessions asks 46 Obama-era U.S. attorneys to resign

by Joel Schectman and Mark Hosenball

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions abruptly asked the remaining 46 chief federal prosecutors left over from the Obama administration to resign on Friday, including Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, who had been asked to stay on in November by then President-elect Donald Trump.

Although U.S. attorneys are political appointees, and the request from Trump’s Justice Department is part of a routine process, the move came as a surprise. Not every new administration replaces all U.S. attorneys at once.

Stop. Please notice what is emphasized and what is de-emphasized. It is emphasized that the event was a surprise. It was not much emphasized that it is customary for new administrations to replace the US attorneys as they are political appointments and thusly connected by prevailing political prairie winds. When Demorats do it, the process is all well and good. When a conservative or a Republican does it — as George Bush did — the process is now evil on its face. As expected, Leftist news organs went ballistic.

Gloriously, CNN’s Don Lemon saw a conspiracy behind every bush — or was it Bush? Sean Hannity knows all, sees all, and pulls the strings of DC from the Fox News studios.

Then there are the US attorneys who, apparently, are superior to others. From the WP.com:

New York federal prosecutor Preet Bharara says he was fired by Trump administration

by Devlin Barrett, Sari Horowitz and Robert Costa

Preet Bharara, one of the most high-profile federal prosecutors in the country, was fired Saturday after refusing to submit a letter of resignation as part of an ouster of the remaining U.S. attorneys who were holdovers from the Obama administration, according to people familiar with the matter.

“I did not resign,” Bharara said on Twitter. “Moments ago I was fired. Being the US Attorney in SDNY will forever be the greatest honor of my professional life.”

On Friday, acting deputy attorney general Dana Boente began making calls to 46 prosecutors asking for their resignations. Such requests are a normal part of a transition of power from one administration to another, and about half of the 94 Obama-era U.S. attorneys had already left their jobs.

Stop. So you see the difference in reporting? Reuters intimates it’s non-standard to expect letters of resignation and to accept them. WaPo says it’s a “normal part” of the transition.

Further, Mr Bharara believes he’s superior to other USAs and, as a result, doesn’t have to submit a letter of resignation. When subsequently fired he becomes shocked, shocked I tell you. Then, after wits collected, he stated he was proud of his “absolute independence.” This is LeftShockSpeak for “shit, I have to say something.”

Another point about USA Preet Bharara. It was he who prosecuted Dinesh D’Souza for election fraud (thank you, Pat Dollard) because D’Souza is a conservative and was a critic of the Obama administration — as was revealed in his newly-released case files.

“All animals are equal. Some animals are more equal than others.”

Could it also be that any number of these USAs should be removed due to incompetence? In my opinion that would be applicable to US Attorney Zachary Fardon in Chicago, who is noteworthy (or should I say infamous) for this:

Fardon became Chicago’s “top federal prosecutor on Oct. 23, 2013,” and has been heavily criticized for his lack of prosecution of federal gun law violations.

Fardon played up “his office’s role in fighting gun violence on the streets of Chicago” but a Chicago Sun-Times report on “court records in October 2016 showed federal weapons charges in Chicago had actually fallen slightly over the previous five years.”

The Sun-Times report squares with the experience of the Chicago Police Board. During a January 7 interview with NPR, police board chairwoman Lori Lightfoot said Chicago needed more federal prosecutions if they were ever to turn the tide on the city’s gun crime.

Lightfoot said:

We need to have more federal gun prosecutions in Chicago. Our federal partners from the U.S. attorney’s office, the ATF, the FBI need to be much more invested in this overall strategy. Chicago Police Department cannot tackle this issue by itself.

A final note of interest. Whilst the Demorats and Leftists wring their palsied hands over the terrible treatment by President Trump of the US Attorneys, President Clinton purified and cleansed the AG’s offices throughout the fruited plain in 1993 — including US Attorney for the Southern District of Alabama Jeff Sessions, who had been appointed by President Ronald Reagan and served President George H.W. Bush as well. Clinton ejected those USAs produced under Republican regimes — and had every bit of authority to do so. Let’s listen.

The bottom line is that none of this needs to be justified by the Trump administration. It’s how the game is played and the “mainstream media” or what I term the American Media Maggots have and will not tell you anything about the history of events like this. They want you to believe that everything occurs in a vacuum and is totally unprecedented. The American Media Maggots possess what I term a purposeful Historical Alzheimers.

That is why I say that the American Media Maggots have historically worked long and hard to earn their sobriquet of Fake News.

They are proud of the way they have acted and are acting now.

As conservatives, these common maneuvers are exactly what we expected of Donald Trump and, further, is precisely why he was elected.

“The spice must flow,” and the swamp must be drained.

The insanity of the racist DNC chair candidates

Recent DNC chairs; Debbie Wasserman Schultz (L), resigned July 2016, current interim DNC chair Donna Brazile (R).

It is no shock that the Demorats are in a very serious kerfuffle. Of the five stages of grief (denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance), Demorats have hung up on the transition from denial to anger.

I call that denger. Or angenial.

Many still can’t believe it occurred — witness the host of Leftists stating that Donald Trump is “not my president.” Also witness the sixty-seven Demorats who refused to attend the inaugural of Donald Trump, unquestionably the 45th President of the United States.

Following the scabrous and failed terms of Debbie Wasserman Schultz who resigned as DNC Chair in July of 2016 due to the exposed emails indicating the obvious (and successful) attempt by the Dems and DNC to completely sabotage the candidacy of Bernie Sanders, Donna Brazile stepped in as interim chair.

This is the same Donna Brazile — by the way, a former CNN analyst, fired on October 14th of last year — who leaked and fed CNN town hall debate questions to the Hillary Clinton campaign and later said “I’ll send a few more.” She also pushed back at CNN over coverage of the Clinton campaign. As in, CNN thought about changing up their standard fluffy softball questions to some a bit more probing, such as “what’s your favorite kind of cat” or “did you get your $10,000 coat on sale?”

TheHill.com said about Donna Brazile:

As WikiLeaks has shown us, from one single email account, quote approval by sources does happen. Sharing stories in advance with presidential campaigns does happen. Collusion via sharing debate questions in advance does happen. Reporters advising and/or cheering on campaigns does happen.

Facts in evidence, though Brazile had the temerity to deny them — another fabrication.

Up for DNC Chair is Representative Keith Ellison of Minnesota (5th District), who was sworn in on the Koran. A black Muslim, you see. The proverbial Demorat “best of both worlds,” a “two-fer” if you will.

Let’s let Kevin Jackson, executive director of The BlackSphere, tell you about Keith Ellison.

An “ethnocentric racist” who wants to establish a separate country just for blacks. Perfect. Further, he does indeed have ties to Islamist causes. Robert Spencer of JihadWatch.org wrote of Ellison:

Ellison has spoken at a convention of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). Yet ISNA has actually admitted its ties to Hamas, which styles itself the Palestinian arm of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Justice Department actually classified ISNA among entities “who are and/or were members of the US Muslim Brotherhood.”

It gets worse. In 2008, Ellison accepted $13,350 from the Muslim American Society (MAS) to go on a pilgrimage to Mecca. The Muslim American Society is a Muslim Brotherhood organization: “In recent years, the U.S. Brotherhood operated under the name Muslim American Society, according to documents and interviews. One of the nation’s major Islamic groups, it was incorporated in Illinois in 1993 after a contentious debate among Brotherhood members.” That’s from the Chicago Tribune in 2004, in an article that is now carried on the Muslim Brotherhood’s English-language website, Ikhwanweb.

Is CAIR in there? Of course.

Also, the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) raised large amounts of for Ellison’s first campaign, and he has spoken at numerous CAIR events. Yet CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR officials have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups.

Yes, Keith Ellison would make a wonderful Democratic National Committee chair, a position that will come up for vote in February.

Let’s shift gears and watch Sally Boynton Brown, another candidate for DNC chair (and current Idaho Democratic Party Executive Director), trot out the reasons she should be installed.

It’s interesting to watch the black male and black female in the background of her speech, nodding and smiling, thinking “she is going to make one very useful tool.”

It’s also interesting to note the verbal pandering she proffers to blacks when she says “and I can’t do it without y’all.” Naked pandering because, as she admits, she’s from Idaho and I’ll wager absolutely no one says “ya’all” in Idaho. And certainly not her, when she returns.

Does it not sound something like this, from Hillary Rodham Clinton?

Note to Brown and the DNC: keep it up. Please, please, please continue to double down on stupid, unforgiving and daft. You truly have learned nothing from your defeat in November and, for that, I thank you.

You know you can’t win on details or on facts or issues themselves. All you have left — as emphasized by Mr Obama — is a greater focus on division and identity politics using emotions manipulated to the Nth degree. Everything, to Demorats, distills down to only race or gender.

So, go ahead: please make the Demorat Party the party of Hate Caucasoids. Make Caucasoids of all shapes and sizes uncomfortable to be associated with you. Scourge them. Make them hold you at arms’ length. That’s perfectly in keeping with the Demorats being the party of the Little Guy because — in California and moving to other states — Caucasoids are in fact the demographic minority now. It’s also in keeping with the Demorats being the party of peace, tolerance, inclusivity and open-mindedness.

I say again: please-oh-please install either Ellison or Brown as DNC chair.
