ABC News throws Bill Clinton under the bus

American Thinker

By James Mullin

This Thursday (January 10), in prime time, the unthinkable happened: ABC ran a two-hour special describing what a screw-up, perv, and narcissist William Jefferson Clinton was.  A parade of ABC reporters and news folks chimed in, clucking how awful he really was at heart.

But isn’t this the network of George Stephanopoulos (the unbiased news anchor), Martha Raddatz (crying on live TV at the loss of Hillary Clinton in 2016), and Chris (the lesser) Cuomo?  How can this be?  Has the North Pole shifted?  Has the sun darkened?  It was truly hilarious to watch the parade of objective ABC notables solemnly intoning what a reprobate Bill was throughout the Lewinsky fiasco.  It raises the question: where were they in the 1990s, when he was apparently molesting and raping his way from Arkansas north to D.C., and jeopardizing U.S. national security along the way (blackmail, anyone?)?  And it raises the yet more tantalizing question of what has changed.  Why now?

Despite the left’s inevitable ability to shoot itself in the foot (hats off to Mr. Maduro and the Chuck and Nancy “American Gothic” tableau), I’m still of the belief that there is some semi-intelligent if not beneficent being (Soros, Bloomberg, Gates, Buffett, Zuckerberg, Kim Jong-il, Pee-wee Herman) that holds the strings behind the political-educational-media-cultural shift that has been ongoing in the U.S. and the West at large since the 1930s.  Take a few steps back, and it’s hard to miss it.  If that’s the case, then someone has decided that the Clintons are (finally) out.  But who is in?

Clearly, a sea change is coming.  Last night did everything but announce it with trumpets.  The question is, why, and why now?

So this is how it’s going to go- ABC News begins rewriting history to protect Hillary

Flopping Aces

If two weeks ago I claimed it was raining when it was not, but today it does rain, does that make my original statement a prediction, one that was “right?” No, if you’re honest about it. But maybe yes if you’re ABC News, and instead of me talking about rain, it was Hillary Clinton talking about Donald Trump in ISIS recruitment videos.

On today’s Good Morning America, co-host Dan Harris suggested Hillary Clinton “may actually have been right” about Donald Trump turning up in ISIS videos. And during the subsequent segment, reporter Mary Bruce said Hillary “predicted” Trump “would become” recruitment fodder. There’s only one hitch: Hillary hadn’t “predicted” that ISIS would use Trump or that he “would become” fodder. On December 19th, during a Dem debate, Hillary claimed that ISIS was already using Trump in recruitment videos. But no terror group used Trump in a video before today, when he turned up in a video not by ISIS but from an al Qaeda-affiliated group.

The irony is that by mentioning the use of Trump in terrorist recruitment videos, Hillary might actually have encouraged Islamic terrorist groups to do so. These groups are very media-savvy. And after Hillary’s statement, what better way to ensure massive media coverage of a recruitment video than to stick Trump in it? Thanks for the idea, Hillary!

Networks Won’t Call ISIS “Terrorists”

Weasel Zippers

Apparently the guys beheading children are just “rebels” and “militants.”

Via Newsbusters:

The Big Three networks steered clear of labeling the Islamist group ISIS “terrorists” on their evening newscasts on Friday. Instead, ABC’s World News and CBS Evening News labeled the genocidal radicals “militants.” NBC Nightly News used the more benign “rebels” in their coverage of the group’s latest attacks on the Kurdish part of Iraq.

The closest that a journalist at ABC, CBS, or NBC got to using the “terrorist” label was Scott Pelley’s teaser at the very top of CBS Evening News:

SCOTT PELLEY (teaser): Tonight, back in battle: The President orders U.S. warplanes to attack Sunni Muslim extremists in northern Iraq to stop a campaign of terror. But he makes Americans this promise:

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: I will not allow the United States to be dragged into fighting another war in Iraq.

Brian Williams introduced correspondent Jim Miklaszewski’s report on NBC Nightly News by noting that “a violent group called ISIS has swept across Iraq. They have civilians and religious minorities on the run, and threatened with death.” Miklaszewski twice referred to ISIS as “rebels” during the segment. He did include a clip of President Obama using the “terrorist” label in reference to the group:

JIM MIKLASZEWSKI: …In his nationwide address Thursday night, President Obama said the airstrikes are necessary to protect American lives at the U.S. consulate in Erbil.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: I’ve directed our military to take targeted strikes against ISIL terrorist convoys should they move toward the city.

MIKLASZEWSKI: The airstrikes are also aimed at supporting Kurdish Peshmerga fighters – U.S. allies overrun by ISIS rebels this week. President Obama cautioned, however, any U.S. airstrikes would be limited. Critics accuse the President of playing domestic politics, and that limited airstrikes will do little to stop the relentless advance of ISIS rebels.

The NBC journalist later underlined that “ISIS…has seized a large section of east and northern Iraq, with unspeakable brutality that includes mass executions and beheadings.”

VITAL RECORDS INDICATE OBAMA NOT BORN IN HAWAII HOSPITAL (PART 3)

DIRTY LITTLE SECRET: Historical evidence provided by the National Center for Health Statistics and the U.S. Reference Library System now confirms the information appearing within the image of Obama’s alleged 1961 “Certificate of Live Birth” disregards his actual foreign birthplace while, instead, providing a statistically based “geographic allocation” which is a result of a widely misunderstood natality data reporting policy which began in 1950. Stalling for four years since Obama announced his candidacy in February of 2007, under mounting political pressures and legal challenges, the White House unveiled a lone scrap of counterfeit information in the form of a desolate internet image which, after a six month criminal investigation, now confirms that Obama’s presidency is the single greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people.
By Penbrook Johannson and Daniel Crosby Of

 THE DAILY PEN
NEW YORK, NY – Barack Obama has misled millions into believing he is eligible to hold the office of the U.S. presidency by exploiting a little known secret about his Hawaiian-based natal records which were issued in conjunction with a commonly used, but publicly misunderstood, vital statistics reporting anomaly used to allocate birthplace according to residency by the State of Hawaii in 1961.

The Self-Destruction of the Mainstream Media

American Thinker

For  the past forty years the mainstream media has become increasingly liberal and  more overt in promoting the policies of the Democratic Party.  This  evolutionary process reached its zenith in 2008 when the media were instrumental  in Barack Obama being elected President.   Many journalists dropped  any pretense of objectivity and became not only cheerleaders but active de facto  members of the campaign.   What has their loyalty and prostration  achieved for the journalism community?   During the past two decades  no other sector of the economy has  experienced such overwhelming financial and employment  devastation.

Why I would Vote for Sarah Palin

by 1 Dragon

ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, Louisville Courier Journal, most Liberals and Obama don’t like her. She owns at least one gun and she doesn’t go out and play golf after saying I will not rest until this crisis is over.

And because she is not Obama. Is Sarah Palin going to run? Don’t know, but I would vote for her………………hell, I’d vote for Alan West or Rick Perry if they were running. Anybody but Obama.

Well almost anybody…………….

Declassified FBI Memo: FBI & ABC News Knew OK City Bombing Done By Muslims

By Debbie Schlussel

Now we know.  After years of telling us otherwise, the FBI–in its own words, on its own previously classified memo–knew the the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City was likely the work and planning of Islamic terrorists, not just Timothy McVeigh.

It’s important because it confirms the tireless, ridiculed scoops and hard work by Oklahoma City TV reporter and journalist, Jayna Davis, who for years made the case that the bombing was the work of Iraqi intelligence.  It’s also important because, for years, the CAIR Action Network and other Muslim groups constantly point to that bombing as evidence that major terrorist attacks on America are also committed by non-Muslim, American Christian White guys (even though McVeigh was basically an atheist).  Now, we know for sure that Davis was right, and, per usual, that the HAMAS financier, CAIR Action Network was lying.

A big story in the news today is that a senior ABC News reporter was a mole for the FBI, according to a just released classified FBI memo from the 1990s.  But the far more important revelation in the the memo is that it confirms that the FBI and ABC News believed the Oklahoma City bombing might be the work of Iraqi intelligence working for Saddam Hussein and that Saudi Arabia warned about this same fact.
