SUCH KEK! CNN ‘Journalist Of The Year’ Quits, Admits He Wrote Fake News Reader 12/20/2018 (Thu) 14:04:15 Id: 0c048a [Preview] No. 13446 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A reporter who was awarded CNN’s “Journalist of the Year” prize has resigned from his job and admitted to writing fake news for several years because he felt “pressure.”

“I am sick and I need to get help,” Claas Relotius said after resigning from his job. In his confession, he explained, “It was fear of failing,” that made him falsify the news for liberal outlets. “My pressure to not be able to fail got ever bigger the more successful I became.”

According to Der Spiegel, Relotius, an employee, “made up stories and invented protagonists” in many of his articles in order to push liberal talking points, demonize conservatives, and reinforce the globalist world view.


Relotius, who was awarded CNN’s highest prize for journalism in 2014, was exposed as a long-term writer of fake news after another reporter raised suspicions about a popular anti-Trump story he wrote recently about the US-Mexican border.

The colleague, Juan Moreno, tracked down two “sources” quoted extensively by Relotius in the article, which was published in November. Both “sources” said they had never met Relotius. Relotius had also lied about seeing a hand-painted sign that read “Mexicans keep out”, a subsequent investigation found.

But the story about the US-Mexico border was just the tip of the iceberg. Relotius has a long history of writing fake news to please CNN and other liberal outlets. Other fraudulent stories included one about a prisoner in Guantanamo Bay, and a story about former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Further bolstering CNN’s reputation for producing and rewarding fake news if it suits their agenda, Relotius, 33, immediately admitted to the scam and resigned.

Relotius told Spiegel he regretted his actions and was deeply ashamed. “I am sick and I need to get help,” he was quoted as saying.

Americans Say No. 1 Problem is Corrupt Government, No. 2 is Immigration Crisis Reader 12/19/2018 (Wed) 02:09:49 Id: 5d479d [Preview] No. 13436 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A new survey shows that the "top problem" cited by Americans is "government," and the second top problem is "immigration." For contrast, among the issues seen as least problematic for Americans are "unemployment-jobs" and "gun control/guns."

In the survey, conducted by Gallup after the midterm elections, the polling firm asked Americans about the country's top problems and then listed those issues that were "mentioned by at least 3% of respondents."

Nineteen percent of respondents cited "government" as the problem, making it the top issue of concern. In second place came "immigration," cited by 16% of the respondents. However, when broken down politically, 29% of Republicans said immigration is a problem but only 7% of Democrats said the same.

Only 8% of respondents said "unifying the country" was a problem, and only 3% said unemployment-jobs and then gun contol/guns were a problem.

Also, only 5% said "healthcare" was a problem.

"These data come from a Gallup Dec. 3-12 survey, conducted as a looming budget impasse between Republicans and Democrats threatened to shut down the government," reported Gallup. "The government has commonly been cited in recent years as the most important problem facing the country, with the problem having received or been tied for the most mentions -- 22 times in the last 24 months."

"As another potential partial shutdown of the Federal government approaches, government is again mostly likely to be cited by Americans as the most important problem facing the country," said Gallup. "However, the current level noting government dissatisfaction is still below the 25% who cited the issue in January of this year, a few weeks prior to the last time the Federal government faced a shutdown. That shutdown ended after three days."


TRUMP CAVES BIGLY TO CONGRESS: $5 BILLION USAID TO MEXICO... NO WALL FUNING Reader 12/18/2018 (Tue) 20:45:25 Id: 2b4287 [Preview] No. 13434 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The White House suggested Tuesday that President Donald Trump could back down from his demand for $5 billion to fund his proposed border wall in a year-end spending bill.

Trump's push for the money has threatened a partial government shutdown when funding for seven agencies lapses after midnight Friday. Last week, the president said he would be "proud" to close parts of the government over border security.

"We have other ways that we can get to that $5 billion that we'll work with Congress," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told Fox News on Tuesday morning.



The United States pledged $5.8 billion in aid Tuesday for strengthening government and economic development in Central America, and another $4.8 billion in development aid for southern Mexico.

The U.S aid aims to promote better security conditions and job opportunities as part of a regional plan to allow Central Americans to remain in their countries and not have to emigrate.

The plan was announced in a joint U.S.-Mexican statement released by the State Department and read aloud by Mexican Foreign Relations Secretary Marcelo Ebrard in the Mexican capital.

“In sum I think this is good news, very good news for Mexico,” Ebrard said.

Along with the 38 billion aid to Yiddsrael, why pay taxes? America was never first with Trump. We're only paying for other nations.

Nuts! Compulsory Indoctrination In UK Schools Includes Lies Claiming Boys Have Periods Too Reader 12/18/2018 (Tue) 14:43:59 Id: 1f628c [Preview] No. 13422 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Transgender rights activists are celebrating with cosmopolitans, dark chocolate, and passing around palette loads of Midol, because the U.K.’s Brighton and Hove city council has declared that boys also menstruate. The East Sussex city’s local government brain trust issued guidelines earlier this month, under the heading “Taking a Period Positive Approach in Brighton & Hove Schools” and will be compulsory inside the classrooms of all primary school children.

The council, which is far beyond the label of extreme and lunatic left, issued the statement:

“Trans boys and men and non-binary people may have periods ... and menstruation must be inclusive of all genders.”

Yes, these people are seemingly bat-dung nuts.

And although women worldwide would be ecstatic for men to have cramps, bloating, and irritability for several days a month, alas, this report is devoid of, well, science. In short, it’s completely whackadoodle.

Health class for school children is about to get a bit more interesting in the Green Party bonkers bastion by the sea as the guidelines require full compliance in or before 2020, and will be included in the curricula for children enrolled in grades one through eight.

The prospectus has come under fire from Member of Parliament for the Conservative Party, David Davies, who told reporters the plan was insane:

“Learning about periods is already a difficult subject for children that age, so to throw in the idea girls who believe they are boys also have periods will leave them completely confused.”

But the city council believes otherwise. Heck, in 2016, they sent letters to parents before class enrollments requesting that children, as young as age four, choose the gender “they most identify with.” They also make teachers use a Trans Inclusion Schools Toolkit, one of the aims being “developing understanding of trans and gender questioning children and young people.”

Shocking! Venezuelans, Crushed By Tyrannical Government, Regret Giving Up Their Guns Reader 12/18/2018 (Tue) 18:08:49 Id: caa21a [Preview] No. 13431 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
BE PREPARED: https://archive.fo/elYwR

The government of Venezuela convinced its citizens to give up their guns in 2012, promising them it would mean peace, prosperity and a sharp reduction in violence. Fast forward six years and the nation has some of the highest murder and gun crime rates in the world, worse than many war zones, and Venezuelan citizens now regret giving up their right to bear arms in the face of a government that has turned tyrannical.

As Venezuelan society continues to fall apart under the brutal socialist dictatorship of President Nicolas Maduro, many citizens are now expressing words of warning – and resentment – against a six-year-old gun control bill that forcefully stripped them of their weapons.

“Venezuelans didn’t care enough about it. The idea of having the means to protect your home was seen as only needed out in the fields. People never would have believed they needed to defend themselves against the government,” Javier Vanegas, 28, a Venezuelan teacher of English now exiled in Ecuador, told Fox News.

“Guns would have served as a vital pillar to remaining a free people, or at least able to put up a fight,” Vanegas explained.

“The government security forces, at the beginning of this debacle, knew they had no real opposition to their force. Once things were this bad, it was a clear declaration of war against an unarmed population.”

Under the direction of then-President Hugo Chavez, the Venezuelan National Assembly in 2012 enacted the “Control of Arms, Munitions and Disarmament Law,” with the explicit aim to “disarm all citizens.” The law took effect in 2013, with only minimal pushback from some pro-democracy opposition figures, banned the legal commercial sale of guns and munitions to all – except government entities.

Chavez initially ran a months-long amnesty program encouraging Venezuelans to trade their arms for electrical goods. That year, there were only 37 recorded voluntary gun surrenders, while the majority of seizures – more than 12,500 – were by force.

Although the bill was sold to the population as a hardline effort to improve security, and sharply reduce crime, many now point to Venezuela as a case study for how gun prohibition can actually produce the opposite effect.

Good! Obamacare Ruled Unconstitutional, Struck Down As Invalid Reader 12/18/2018 (Tue) 16:50:28 Id: 8e3676 [Preview] No. 13430 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Obamacare has been ruled unconstitutional by a US District Court in Texas and will be formally scrapped.

Commenting on the decision of the court to invalidate the Affordable Care Act, President Trump urged legislators to change the law immediately.

Wow, but not surprisingly, ObamaCare was just ruled UNCONSTITUTIONAL by a highly respected judge in Texas. Great news for America!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 15, 2018

Earlier on Friday, US District Court Judge Reed O’Connor ruled that the reform must be axed because Congress cancelled its key provision — the tax penalty for not complying with the requirement to buy insurance

The decision was part of a case made by 20 plaintiff states who sought to recognise the Affordable Care Act as invalid.

As I predicted all along, Obamacare has been struck down as an UNCONSTITUTIONAL disaster! Now Congress must pass a STRONG law that provides GREAT healthcare and protects pre-existing conditions. Mitch and Nancy, get it done!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 15, 2018

The ruling is supposed to be appealed in the coming days. However, the ruling was made less than 24 hours before the end of the regular insurance purchase period for the year ending on December 15.

Brain-Eating Amoebas Found In US Tap Water, Kills Woman From Seattle Reader 12/18/2018 (Tue) 16:21:42 Id: 36b292 [Preview] No. 13427 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Rare brain-eating amoebas have killed a woman from Seattle after she used tap water to rinse her sinuses, health officials have confirmed.

The organisms entered her brain after she squirted a neti pot up into her upper nasal cavity.

Seattletimes.com reports:

When a 69-year-old Seattle woman underwent brain surgery earlier this year at Swedish Medical Center, her doctors were stumped.

Last January, the woman was admitted to the hospital’s emergency department after suffering a seizure. Doctors took a CT scan of her brain to determine the cause, finding what they initially thought was a tumor. But an examination of tissue taken from her brain during surgery a day later showed she was up against a much deadlier attack, one that had been underway for about a year and was literally eating her alive.

“When I operated on this lady, a section of her brain about the size of a golf ball was bloody mush,” Dr. Charles Cobbs, neurosurgeon at Swedish, said in a phone interview. “There were these amoeba all over the place just eating brain cells. We didn’t have any clue what was going on, but when we got the actual tissue we could see it was the amoeba.”

The woman died a month later from the rare organisms that entered her brain after being injected into her nasal cavity by way of a neti pot, a teapot-shaped product used to rinse out the sinuses and nasal cavity, according to a case study recently published in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases.

The study was authored by Swedish doctors and researchers who worked on her case, including Cobbs. The publication doesn’t identify the victim.

I used to buy water filters from Jones but I'll be honest, you'll save A LOT of money just buying a water distiller and distilling your own water. Distillation removes everything toxic, including toxins and viruses.

Note that, like an old coffee machine, you will have to clean the distiller with vinegar every so often. I clean mine out once every two or three weeks.

Due To Radical Violence, Deliberate Destabilization, Czech Republic Proposes Complete Ban On Islam Reader 12/18/2018 (Tue) 15:52:07 Id: 0cafa5 [Preview] No. 13426 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Political leaders in the Czech Republic are refusing to submit to the European Union’s demands that they accept Muslim migrants and have instead proposed a complete ban on Islam in the country.

According to MP Jiri Kobza, if a religion calls for the killing of infidels and Jews, then it cannot be considered a religion of peace.

Kobza and his party Freedom and Direct Democracy, which is one of the largest in parliament, believe Islam is less a religion and more a violent ideology that should be banned from civilized society.

“We have suggested that all ideologies that promote hatred and violence should be banned. One of the ideologies is Islam. And then we have fascism and Nazism.”

According to Kobza, Muslims do not want to integrate into non-Muslim societies. Liberals who believe Muslim migrants will integrate peacefully into Western society are deluded and naive.

“It is not migration – it is colonization.”

A strong mistrust of Islam exists throughout the political spectrum in the Czech Republic, where thanks to minimal immigration only 0.5 percent of the population are Muslim.

Czech citizens, overwhelmingly Christian, want their society to remain that way. They do not want to suffer the same fate as “diverse” societies in the West that have lost their national culture and traditions.

“We do not want more Muslims in Czech Republic,” the Social Democratic former Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka said in an interview last year.

Belgian Government Begin Gassing Citizens For Protesting Mandatory UN Suicide Pact Reader 12/18/2018 (Tue) 15:36:49 Id: ca5fd0 [Preview] No. 13425 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The tyrannical Belgian government has begun gassing thousands of its own citizens who are peacefully protesting globalism.

Over 5,000 people protesting the signing of the UN Migration Pact were sprayed with tear gas on Sunday.

Demonstrators protesting against a new United Nations migration pact outside the European Union’s headquarters in Brussels this weekend were met with tear gas and water cannons after some of them became violent.

Riot police closed off streets in the city center and confronted some protesters after about 5,000 gathered on Sunday for a march local authorities initially banned due to the threat of violence.

The protesters were objecting to a UN compact on migration, a non-binding agreement among the majority states to cooperate in ensuring safe migration and upholding the rights of migrants around the world, Sky News reported. The pact, which was signed in Marrakesh last week, has been criticized by conservative and rightwing voices, who contend Europe is already overrun with migrants from Africa and the Middle East. The huge numbers that flooded the continent after the start of the war in Syria have been tied to a rise in crime and terrorism as well as labor and poverty issues.

The UN Suicide Pact reportedly seeks to make immigration a “human right” and “criminalize criticism of migration” as “hate speech.”

A disturbing UN plan which went viral recently along with discussions of the pact called for “replacement migration” to address the “new challenges of declining and ageing populations.”
