Lies, Liars, Journalists, Authors, Democrats: Sorry, Repetition for Emphasis! Part II By Rich Kozlovich 


Trump DOJ Obtained Data on Schiff and Swalwell, Two Long-Time Champions of Domestic Spying  - Glenn Greenwald Jun 11, 2021 - The two California Democrats join the long list of politicians who enable spying on ordinary citizens, then angrily object when they themselves are targeted.............The two House Democrats, among the most fanatical disseminators of baseless Russiagate conspiracies and long known to serve as anonymous sources of leaks to liberal media outlets, reacted with predictable outrage. “This baseless investigation, while now closed, is yet another example of Trump's corrupt weaponization of justice,” Schiff intoned on Thursday night. As difficult as it is, Swalwell, as he often does, found a way to be even more melodramatic than Schiff: “Like many of the world’s most despicable dictators, former President Trump showed an utter disdain for our democracy and the rule of law.”........ 

‘Simply wrong’ — Rank hypocrisy in Biden’s press criticisms of Trump - - Friday, June 11, 2021 - President Biden uttered “it’s simply, simply wrong” when news arrived that the Trump Justice Department had spied on reporters’ phone records and emails to try to catch leakers. Mr. Biden’s verdict sounded great for the First Amendment in an era of left-wing muzzling.You would never guess that the not-so-long-ago Obama-Biden administration conducted some of the most mindboggling spying on journalists in modern U.S. history.............

Keith Olbermann Reminds Us What An Awful Person He Is: 'Breitbart is a Dead Drunken Moron' - Rebecca Downs Jun 11, 2021- Keith Olbermann really is a terrible person, one of the worst. His rants are insane. He makes no sense, and it's really a wonder why if anyone is going to be thrown off of social media, it isn't this man. The leftist loon provided one more reason why he's such an awful human being when he responded to Alex Marlow promoting his book, "Breaking the News."

Alex Marlow is the current editor-in-chief of Breitbart, which the late Andrew Breitbart founded. As Olbermann himself acknowledged, Breitbart is dead, meaning he had the gall to go over a dead man who can't defend himself.  The outlet definitely took notice. "Olbermann Triggered by Marlow, Throws Twitter Tantrum, Attacks Defenseless Andrew Breitbart," Hannah Bleu reported for Breitbart. "Olbermann," as Bleu pointed out, "was clearly disturbed by the author’s tweet of gratitude, though he was unable to debunk any of Marlow’s assertions, devolving into a sequence of uninventive name-calling and baselessly smearing the late Andrew Breitbart."............

Politico: Leak prosecutor no "Barr crony" after all - Ed Morrissey Jun 12, 2021 - Readers of the New York Times may have been shocked to read their report on the Trump-era Department of Justice’s secret search warrants on communications of members of Congress. Friends and colleagues of federal prosecutor Osmar Benvenuto were even more shocked to find him characterized as a “crony” of then-AG William Barr. The New Jersey Democrat got tapped for the job over his own misgivings, not because he knew Barr but because Barr had been told that Benvenuto was a tough, action-oriented independent thinker within the DoJ............At least two of Benvenuto’s friends spoke on the record to Gerstein about their shock at the way the NYT story characterized him. One called the effort to cast Benvenuto as a Barr “stooge … just outrageous.”...............
Nolte: Media Matters Forced to Retract Fake Story Smearing Texas Republican - John Nolte
Glenn Greenwald calls out another leftist lie -  By Andrea Widburg June 13, 2021 - Exactly five years ago, Omar Mateen entered the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, where he killed 49 people and wounded 53 others. AP now reports that Biden plans to name the nightclub as a national memorial standing for all targeted gay victims of gun violence – which outraged reporter Glenn Greenwald, who believes in facts.

We’ve known for years now why Mateen shot up the Pulse nightclub: He was committing a religious jihad. His goal was to shoot up a nightclub – any nightclub – as revenge for American airstrikes in Syria and Iraq. Facts make it clear that he didn’t target Pulse because it was a gay nightclub; he targeted it because it was a crowded nightclub. Nevertheless, that’s not how either the Democrats or the media (but I repeat myself) are selling the decision to establish Pulse as a memorial:

Will Any Anti-Trump Story Hold Up? - Derek Hunter Jun 13, 2021 - No profession loves themselves like journalists love themselves. After all, they “write the first draft of history.” However, as with any writing, history gets its say as well, and story after story in that “first draft of history” is proving to be untrue. It’s enough to make you wonder if any story from the Presidency of Donald Trump will stand up to even basic scrutiny in a year?  

People get things wrong – we’re people, after all, and wildly imperfect. But journalists have gotten so much wrong over the last 4 years it makes you wonder if they got anything right. You name the “scandal” some left-wing outlet reported between 2016 and today about the former President and you will see a story that not only strains credulity, but one that doesn’t stand up to basic fact-checking.

  • Trump called dead Allied soldiers “losers.” 
  • Russia “hacked” the 2016 election.
  • Trump ordered Georgia officials to “find votes.”
  • Hydroxychloroquine has no value and is basically poison that will kill people with COVID.
  • Trump ignored Russia putting bounties on US soldiers in Afghanistan.
  • COVID was not from a lab in Wuhan.
  • Trump ordered the teargassing of “peaceful protesters” so he could have a photo-op.
  • Trump called neo-Nazis and white supremacists “very fine people.”
  • Donald Trump Jr. got early access to Wikileaks emails.
  • Russian collusion, etc., etc.

You name the story and the odds that it held up to simple research and reporting is about zero. It makes you wonder why the most basic of reporting wasn’t done before they hit the “publish” button.......The Washington Post famously kept a running total of “Trump lies” on their website. As it turns out, their website, and the websites of their fellow “news” outlets were the biggest lies of them all. ................

DEBUNKED: Eight times the MSM got the facts about Trump COMPLETELY WRONG, But don't hold your breath for any apologies- -  On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago........
