During a conference call with two other Trump biographers and a Politico reporter, Mr D’Antonio cited Hillary Clinton’s popular vote-winning margin of nearly three million as a contributing factor, and added: “He’s always kind of gaming the system—not, in my view, winning on the merits.”
Remember the ‘Bonzo Goes To Washington’ proto-meme from ’80?
With the inauguration of Donald Trump just days away, droves of his supporters are preparing to meet in Washington D.C. to welcome the new President. But there are also darker forces assembling; a gathering of at least 75 anarchist, socialist and communist groups preparing for an event called #DisruptJ20 that has officially called for violent Black Bloc protesters to gather at 10:00 am on Friday, January 20th in Washington D.C. at the Logan Circle and the Francis Scott Key Memorial.
A chilling article from one of the over 75 groups that Breitbart News has identified as connected to the #DisruptJ20 events titled Ten Reasons to Go Hard on January 20 makes the case to anarchists, socialist and communist ruffians from across the country about “why would it be worth driving across the country to a city crowded with reactionaries and police.”
Wow. This is shaping up to be almost as violent as Obama’s inaugurations.
Demand Protest, a San Francisco company that bills itself as the “largest private grassroots support organization in the United States,” posted identical ads Jan. 12 in multiple cities on Backpage.com seeking “operatives.”
Legal Insurrection founder and publisher and Cornell University Law Professor William Jacobson voiced his anger and astonishment at the channel’s removal. “It’s very frustrating, it’s very scary, to have 8 years of content removed without a chance to defend yourself,” he told FoxNews.com.
The mainstream media is in full meltdown mode after President-elect Donald Trump pushed back against CNN and BuzzFeed for pushing a story based on a leaked “dossier” of unverified and scurrilous allegations.
Trump pushed back during a press conference on Wednesday in which he refused to allow CNN to ask a question and called the network “fake news”.
However, while the media is lamenting the fact that Trump is defending himself against CNN and other left-wing news outlets, they were largely silent as President Barack Obama routinely attacked Fox News for 8 years.
Thanks to CNN and BuzzFeed, a war now rages among corporate media outlets, a true study in irony, as the New York Times and Guardian hurl accusations the two outlets are guilty of publishing Fake News — the same Fake News all of the aforementioned have cited in unabashed attempts to discredit legitimate alternative media.
One day in late November, an earth and environmental science professor named Nathan Phillips visited Breitbart News for the first time. Mr. Phillips had heard about the hateful headlines on the site — like “Birth Control Makes Women Unattractive and Crazy” — and wondered what kind of companies would support such messages with their ad dollars. When he clicked on the site, he was shocked to discover ads for universities, including one for the graduate school where he’d received his own degree — Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment. “That was a punch in the stomach,” he said.
And if Trump could persuade Mexico to take Beardo The Angry Eunuch, well, that would be just super. If you can make it to the end without punching your screen or throwing your device at or out something you get a cookie. h/t David Thompson
A “Lyin’ Hillary Doll” displayed next to a “Make America Great Again” sign in a country store in Smithfield, Rhode Island, prompted a firestorm of disapproval from Hillary supporters online this week. Inside the Pleasant View Orchards store the doll dangles from a metal hook, which detractors say is offensive.
Some of the tweets, instead of expressing horror, are declaring “let them burn” and “too bad it’s not the whole state burning.” The tweeters are also accusing residents of showing their “white privilege” because they want more news coverage of the fires.
