Purple Heart Veteran Rises above SNL’s Mockery

Texas Republican candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives and former U.S. Navy SEAL Dan Crenshaw lost an eye while serving in Afghanistan. “Saturday Night Live” comedian Pete Davidson considered his eyepatch fair game, saying in a skit that Crenshaw looked like “a hitman in a porno movie.” “I’m sorry. I know he lost his eye in war, or whatever,” Davidson continued. Crenshaw tweeted in reply: “Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended. That being said, I hope @nbcsnl recognizes that vets don’t deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes.” Here’s the lesson from SNL: it’s okay to offend folks as long as they’re on the right half of the political spectrum. If they’re on the left half, you’re a racist/sexist hater.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Dan Crenshaw, a Republican candidate running for an open congressional seat in Texas, has responded after he was mocked by “Saturday Night Live” comedian Pete Davidson for wearing an eyepatch. Crenshaw lost an eye after an IED exploded while he was serving in Afghanistan.

Davidson had said during a “Weekend Update” bit that Crenshaw looked like “a hitman in a porno movie.”

“I’m sorry, I know he lost his eye in war, or whatever,” Davidson continued.

Crenshaw took the joke in stride, tweeting Sunday morning:

“Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended. That being said, I hope @nbcsnl recognizes that vets don’t deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes.”

CNN Host: “Biggest Terror Threat in the U.S. is White Men”

That was the hyperbolic and vitriolic phrase used by CNN’s incorrigibly biased Don Lemon in describing the current state of affairs in America after the Florida pipe bomb mailer and synagogue shooter. No mention of the fact that the bomber was half-Filipino. Lemon pondered aloud, “What do we do about” a lack of a “white guy ban?” Lemon’s comments were seconded by privileged white male CNN host Chris Cuomo, who praised Lemon for “making the right point.” So just remember: if you happen to be born white and male, you should be put in figurative shackles. Paging Martin Luther King.

Here’s more from Fox News…

CNN host Don Lemon is under fire after a disturbing, on-air rant in which he declared that “white men” are the biggest terror threat to the United States, noted that “there is no white-guy ban” and wondered aloud, “what do we do about that?”

“Cuomo Prime Time” host Chris Cuomo and Lemon were discussing the recent shooting of two black men in Kentucky that is being investigated as a hate crime when his Monday guest and colleague took the conversation off the rails.

“I keep trying to point out to people not to demonize any one group or any one ethnicity, but we keep thinking that the biggest terror threat is something else,” Lemon said. “Some people who are marching towards the border like it’s imminent. And the last time they did this, a couple of hundred people came and they, you know, most of them didn’t get into the country. Most of them got tuckered out before they even made it to the border,” Lemon told his CNN colleague. “So we have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them.”

NBC: Info Clearing Kavanaugh Not “Newsworthy”

We finally have an explanation behind NBC news sitting on evidence that would have cleared now-confirmed SCOTUS Justice Brett Kavanaugh of decades-old sexual assault allegations. NBC execs claim: “It was not newsworthy.” In explaining why evidence was covered up for a full week prior to the Oct. 6 vote, NBC’s Kate Snow said the news was hidden from the public because they were not able to verify or confirm the evidence, one for the irony hall of fame considering the wall-to-wall coverage of every unsubstantiated allegation against Kavanaugh. Snow tweeted: “By the time we were able to find the woman independently from Mr. Avenatti, who declined to give us her full legal name and phone number, and fully report and vet her story, the Kavanaugh confirmation process was over and the news value was limited.” Translation: we dragged our feet long enough to ensure relevant details remained buried.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

NBC’s Kate Snow offers only falsehoods and double talk to explain why she and her employer hid crucial facts that would have cleared then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of gang rape allegations.
On Friday, Breitbart News reported that, although NBC had the information a full week prior to his October 6 confirmation, NBC covered up news that would have cleared Kavanaugh when it mattered most — during those intense final days of the confirmation process.

During that week, here is the information NBC News hid from the public and those senators deciding on whether or not to confirm Kavanaugh:

On September 30, the woman who signed a sworn statement corroborating Julie Swetnick’s gang rape allegations against Kavanaugh (the statement was publicly released by attorney Michael Avenatti on October 2), not only told NBC she had never witnessed Kavanaugh spike punch or rape anyone, she also became something of a character witness for Kavanaugh when she told NBC she had never once seen him behave inappropriately.

NBC Buried Intel Undermining Christine Ford

Surprising precisely no one, NBC has been caught sitting on information that would have undermined the credibility of several women accusing newly confirmed SCOTUS Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. According to a report from The Daily Wire, NBC was manipulating the dates of their Oct. 1 interview with Michael Avenatti’s client Julie Swetnick in which she backtracked her key claims and undermined her own case causing it to crumble. Avenatti then released a second, nearly identical statement from an “unnamed” woman on Oct. 3, but which Swetnick disputed as misrepresentation. This was two days after the Swetnick interview but the beginning of a series of exchanges in which Swetnick accused Avenatti of twisting her words, while NBC covered it all up. Of course this is a typical, brazen attempt by leftist media moguls to massage the facts to fit their agenda.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

In yet another stunning display of media bias, NBC now acknowledges that it had information that undermined the credibility of some of the women who accused then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, but didn’t report it at the time.

On Thursday, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) referred celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti and his client Julie Swetnick to the Justice Department. Swetnick, in a sworn statement, accused Kavanaugh of drinking too much, acting aggressive toward women, spiking the punch at parties and orchestrating teenage gang-rapes. Her claims were ludicrous on their face, but the left-leaning media – eager to torpedo Kavanaugh’s nomination for fear he could be the deciding vote in overturning Roe v. Wade – ran with them anyway.

NBC was the worst offender. The network interviewed Swetnick even though it said up front it couldn’t verify her claims. This is Journalism Malpractice 101; you don’t put out possibly defamatory information you can’t verify.

CNN Analyst Calls Benghazi Hero “Racist”

CNN political analyst Kirsten Powers (and former girlfriend of Huma Abedin’s estranged husband, Anthony Weiner) got called out for virtue-signaling in her attempt to prevent white people from committing “cultural appropriation” on Halloween. She tweeted: “Dear white people who are upset that you can’t dress up as another race or culture for Halloween: your feelings don’t matter. The only feelings that matter are of those who feel disrespected/mocked by you appropriating their culture for entertainment. Show some common decency.” Enter Benghazi Hero and CIA/Military veteran Kris “Tanto” Paronto, who responded with a Game of Thrones meme featuring the very fair Daenerys Targaryen on the shoulders of her brown acolytes captioned: “How Kirsten Powers sees herself after complaining about white people dressing up as other ethnicities for Halloween.” Powers responded with a tweetfest calling Paronto a racist for pointing out the obvious. Why do leftists always resort to ad hominem in the face of truth?

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

On Thursday, CNN political analyst and USA Today columnist Kirsten Powers attacked one of the American heroes of the Benghazi massacre, describing him as a racist.

Powers called Kris Paronto, who was part of the CIA annex security team guarding the Benghazi CIA annex during the 2012 terrorist attack, a racist after Paronto criticized her for tweeting that white people’s feelings didn’t matter when it came to dressing up for Halloween.

Powers had tweeted, “Dear white people who are upset that you can’t dress up as another race or culture for Halloween: your feelings don’t matter. The only feelings that matter are of those who feel disrespected/mocked by you appropriating their culture for entertainment. Show some common decency.”

CNN’s Jim Acosta Can’t Take a Joke

We don’t know which is funnier: that CNN’s Jim Acosta can’t take a joke or that he is concerned about President Trump’s security. According to Justin Caporale, former director of operations for FLOTUS, Acosta complained via Twitter about the loud music at a Trump event: “I suppose the WH loves those kinds of shenanigans. But I wonder if it’s a security concern for [U.S. Secret Service] or local law enforcement. They can’t hear either.” After which Caporale promptly trolled Acosta with a tweeted response of “Dear Diary.” Acosta promptly blocked him on Twitter but not after replying, “F*** you.” More CNN unbias on display.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

CNN Chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta lashed out at a former Trump administration staffer late Thursday night, fuming over a joke at his expense.
Justin Caporale, the former director of operations for first lady Melania Trump, mocked Acosta for complaining about loud music at a rally held by President Donald Trump in Missoula, Montana.

“Tonight the Trump campaign/WH turned up the music so loud the press risers were vibrating. Nearly impossible to do live TV,” Acosta griped on Twitter. “I suppose the WH loves those kinds of shenanigans. But I wonder if it’s a security concern for [U.S. Secret Service] or local law enforcement. They can’t hear either.”

Caporale soon claimed to receive a direct message from Acosta that read, “F**k you.”

McCaskill Not So “Moderate” According to Hidden Camera

Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe has struck again. This time he’s caught Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) on candid camera admitting that she’s hiding a gun-grabbing agenda. Her position isn’t all that surprising coming from the left, but considering that McCaskill portrays herself as a “moderate” before Missouri voters, it’s a bit of a problem. And the only thing preventing a total ban of high-capacity magazines and AR-15s is control of the House. More alarming still are the remarks of a staffer caught on camera saying that “. . . a semi-automatic rifle ban is more so what she would support.” This is what we refer to as an October surprise, and O’Keefe may have just ensured that the GOP actually gains seats in the U.S. Senate.

Here’s more from American Thinker…

Incumbent Democratic senator Claire McCaskill is locked in a tight re-election battle with Republican challenger Josh Hawley, with both candidates slugging it out in a race becoming more and more personal the closer we get to election day.

McCaskill has tried to portray herself as a “moderate” Democrat, in tune with Missouri voters on most issues, while trying to hide some of her more radical views. This became clear when Project Vertias’s James O’Keefe unleashed his hidden cameras on staffers for McCaskill who let slip that the senator is concealing an anti-gun agenda.

MCCASKILL: “Well if we elect enough Democrats we’ll get some gun safety stuff done. They won’t let us vote on it, we’ve got 60 votes for a number of measures that would help with gun safety, but McConnell won’t let ’em come to the floor.”

JOURNALIST: “Like bump stocks, ARs and high capacity mags…?”

“Bullsh*t PR Stunt by a Narcissistic Pop Star”

The left is losing its collective mind over Kanye West’s visit to the Oval Office with celebrities from Hollywood and talking heads on primetime doing whatever they can to attack West while ignoring the substance. Perhaps the unique position he is in to give voice to minority issues is what galls them the most. Comedian Billy Eichner tweeted: “How any serious journalist or news outlet could cover this Kanye West nonsense instead of climate change, voter suppression in Georgia, or any number of issues that actually matter . . . [is] shameful.” What’s shameful is the chattel slavery mentality the left continues to hold regarding blacks in America with their presumption that anyone who holds an unconventional viewpoint is by default an “Uncle Tom.”

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Hollywood celebrities from Josh Gad to Billy Eichner to Chelsea Handler lost their minds Thursday, attacking and mocking Kanye West after he visited the White House and expressed his opinions in the Oval Office.
Kanye West told reporters in the Oval Office that President Trump was “on his hero’s journey right now.”

“He might not have thought he’d have a crazy mother-fucker like Kanye West run up and support, but best believe — we are going to make America great,” West added.

“Kanye West says he thinks of Trump as a father. Guess who doesn’t think of Kanye as a son?” Chelsea Handler tweeted.

“How any serious journalist or news outlet could cover this Kanye West nonsense instead of climate change, voter suppression in Georgia or any number of issues that actually matter and not this fucking bullshit pr stunt by a narcissistic pop star I’ll never know. Shameful,” comedian Billy Eichner tweeted.

Democrat Staffer Charged with Felonies for Doxxing GOP Senators

Jackson Cosko, 27, is charged with several felonies after “publishing restricted personal information, threats in interstate communication, unauthorized access of a government computer, identity theft, witness tampering, second-degree burglary, and unlawful entry” as part of a malicious attack on GOP senators. After being caught, Cosko emailed a threat to the staffer who reported the incident, saying: “If you tell anyone, I will leak it all. Emails signal conversations gmails. Senators children’s health information and socials.” According to Capitol Police Captain Jason Bell, Cosko worked for Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Maggie Hassan (D-NH), and former Senator Barbara Bozer (D-CA). He is now facing 20 years in prison if convicted. This is the modus operandi of the left.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

Jackson Cosko, a 27-year-old grad student and cybersecurity expert who worked for several Democratic lawmakers, was charged with several felonies in connection with a doxxing incident involving GOP senators.

Cosko allegedly posted the personal information of several Republicans on their Wikipedia page.

He was charged with publishing restricted personal information, threats in interstate communication, unauthorized access of a government computer, identity theft, witness tampering, second-degree burglary, and unlawful entry.

Fox News: According to a sworn statement by Capitol Police Captain Jason Bell, a witness Tuesday saw Cosko at a computer in a senator’s office, where he used to work, a day after two other unnamed senators’ information had been put on Wikipedia.

NYT Hides “Multiple Key Facts” in Kavanaugh Coverage

While the Kavanaugh confirmation chaos has devolved into high school-level drama and allegations dating back more than thirty years, the New York Times is facing a #FakeNews dilemma of its own. Apparently its journalists are ferreting out the most granular of detail from SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s high school days in order to do their part in the Democrats’ grand delay scheme. Case in petty point: its Monday “bombshell” detailed a reference made by Kavanaugh in his high school yearbook that was “hurtful” to a girl as part of an inside joke. The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway was quick to point out that the Times “hid multiple problems with its claims, including that it was sourced to a rabidly anti-Trump politician in Maryland and his associate.” But it should come as no surprise that the left media is colluding with Democrats to “bork” Kavanaugh.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

On Monday, The New York Times published a report alleging that Brett Kavanaugh made a reference in one of his high school yearbooks that was “hurtful” to a girl who was part of an inside joke among Kavanaugh and his football buddies. Kavanaugh and four of the guys who’d made the “mysterious” reference (“Renate Alumnius”) to a girl who a few of them said they’d gone on an “innocent date” with at some point responded by saying it was a harmless joke.

Now, the Times is getting blowback not only for the pettiness of the story but for hiding multiple key facts. The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway reports that the Times “hid multiple problems with its claims, including that it was sourced to a rabidly anti-Trump politician in Maryland and his associate.” Hemingway reports:

The original article published online on Monday night was quickly scrubbed of a reference to a “Mr. Madaleno.” The Times uses full names on first references to sources and titles on second references, though it was the first time his name was mentioned in the article.
