Terrorist training camp in New Mexico? Training kids to commit school shootings? Should be a major story right? Not for CNN. MSNBS, etc

TAOS, N.M. (AP) — The Latest on 11 children found living in a filthy, makeshift compound in New Mexico (all times local):

12:30 p.m.

Prosecutors say in court documents that the father of a missing Georgia boy was training children at a New Mexico compound to commit school shootings.

The documents filed Wednesday say Siraj Ibn Wahhaj (see-DAHJ’ IBN wah-HAJ’) was conducting weapons training at the compound near the Colorado border where 11 hungry children were found in filthy conditions.

Prosecutors filed the documents while asking that Wahhaj be held without bail.

Wahhaj was arrested last week with four other adults. They are facing child abuse charges.

Authorities say the remains of a boy also were found on the compound but have not been positively identified by a medical examiners.

Where are you Fake News? You want to stop the fake news narrative? Start reporting NEWS! In short DO YOUR JOB!

When Ultra Liberal newspapers fail

By Ultra Liberal, I, of course, mean Leftist! And, by leftist, I mean the New York Daily News. Stacy McCain is celebrating 

Get Woke, Go Broke indeed!

Ashe Schow delivers the schadenfreude:

For weeks now, staffers at the New York Daily News have braced for cuts. On Monday, those cuts were announced in an impersonal email. It doesn’t appear as though everyone who is being laid off even knows yet.

Tronc, which owns NYDN, sent an email to staff Monday morning announcing it would be “fundamentally restructuring the Daily News,” according to a copy of the memo obtained by the Daily Beast’s Max Tani.
“We are reducing today the size of the editorial team by approximately 50 percent and re-focusing much of our talent on breaking news — especially in areas of crime, civil justice and public responsibility,” the email said. . . .
Those who are laid off, per the email, will “be paid for the next 90 days and be eligible for transitional benefits after that.”
The biggest cut was editor-in-chief Jim Rich, who foreshadowed the layoffs in an ominous tweet Monday morning. . . .

(“If you hate democracy and think local governments should operate unchecked and in the dark, then today is a good day for you,” Rich wrote.)

He also changed his Twitter bio to read: “Just a guy sitting at home watching journalism being choked into extinction.”

(Hat-tip: Ed Driscoll, who somehow has not yet been “choked into extinction.”) If you don’t know why I’m happy about the slashing of staff at the Daily News, they went “all-in” on anti-Trump propaganda since 2016, and especially demonized the National Rifle Association.

They’ve been losing $30 million a year since 2014.

The ex-journalists “are now free to pursue their dream of submitting listicles for Buzzfeed,” as Ace of Spades quips.

Yes, content matters. If you smear and defame and dehumanize half of your potential customers, well………………….

If you abandon your stated goal, in this case journalism……….

Leftists, of course, will never learn this lesson

Some thoughts on the latest round of Trump Derangement Syndrome outbreaks

First these cogent thoughts from a wise man

Yes, yes,  President Trump is at the moment either a blatant traitor to Truth, Justice and the American Way, or the best 4D chess player ever, with almost nobody taking anything like a middle ground.  I get that.  I’ll probably have something to say about the Helsinki thing after the overt RHEEEEEEE from, honestly, both sides has stopped, and I’ve done some reading and had some time to think things over

That the left is descending into deeper levels of batshit crazy over a summit where they do not know what was said behind closed doors is of no surprise. that they wish Congress to force the interpreter to reveal what was said is of no surprise either. We know what the left is, we know they are in panic mode because the president’s policies are benefiting the country. We know they cannot grasp that Americans are so past fed up with politicians, and their games. What does surprise me is that so many Republicans do not get it either. Here is a hint GOP establishment. Do not act like Democrats. Start doing your jobs, you know, what you were elected to do. Put the country ahead of your politics. 

The fact is this. What Putin and Trump said behind closed doors is known only to very very few people. So, dear political talking heads, stop trying to impress us by microanalyzing what was said behind those doors. Syop trying to show us all how smart you are by making asses of yourselves. Stop trying to over analyze a press conference. Stop the outrage, and the hyperbole. Stop hyperventilating because the president did not say the exact words you think he should have said in a useless press conference. Stop! In short, act like you do have a brain, especially you on the right. I expect such idiocy from the left, not from Republicans who ought to know better.

MSNBS reaches new level of irelevancy

Good Freaking Grief!

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” contributor Mike Barnicle and guest Julia Ioffe agreed that Russian President Vladimir Putin has already won the summit between him and President Trump as it began on Monday morning.

“It occurs to several people that Putin has already won here, just by virtue of the fact that we have this picture of the two of them together. You think that’s an accurate assessment?” Barnacle asked the GQ magazine correspondent.

“Absolutely. And that’s actually how Moscow sees it. People who are in official positions in Moscow have not exactly been hiding it. They’ve been crowing all over social media all morning,” Ioffe responded. “The main Russian state television, the main newscast last night was saying this is already a victory for Vladimir Putin.”

Now, I guess the biggest question is if CNN can surpass this idiocy . Paging Jim Acosta

Jennifer Rubin completes transition into crazy cat lady

Trump Derangement is an ugly thing

MSNBC contributor Jennifer Rubin said on Sunday that White House press secretary Sarah Sanders should be made to feel uncomfortable — for life.

Face it kids, once you go MSNBS, you never go back to reality, or civility, or decency, or sanity

“Don’t play defense. Play offense. Frankly, the next time that Sarah Huckabee Sanders or the president starts in with ‘fake news’ or ‘enemy of the people,’ I would suggest one of two things: either the entire press core walk out of the briefing room — why should they put on air a coded word to every nut case in America to come after them? So, get up and leave. Or, in unison, holler back. They sit there. They take it. They record it. ‘We have to be there. We have to let them say their peace.’ No, you don’t. Your lives are all in danger. Your lives are on the line.” Rubin said.

Yep, I think we see what Jennifer got for Christmas


How to FAIL at journalism a lesson from MSNBS

Hack alert!

An NBC journalist told the truth without meaning to and then quickly tried to cover his tracks during a discussion on immigration,

NBC reporter John Heilemann exposed his partisan colors on Wednesday while speaking to MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace about immigration, admitting he is a Democrat but then trying to walk back his remarks

“It is our job in the press, and it’s also the job of Democrats, to not let the president have it both ways on this issue,” Heilemann said while discussing President Trump’s enforcement of  a policy which separates families who entered the United States illegally.

“You can’t inflict this kind of policy on Americans, and not pay a political price,” the national-affairs analyst for NBC News and MSNBC said.

“We have a great chance to inflict one on him and his party in November,” Heilemann continued, but quickly backtracked.

“We, I mean the Democratic Party. I’m not part of the Democratic Party, but people who object to this policy, which I think is a lot of people,” he said.

Hacktastical Hack!
