Marine Le Pen vs. bossy Global Elite

February 20, 2017

French far-right leader Marine Le Pen has gained ground on her main election rivals, it has emerged.

Support for Le Pen, head of the anti-immigration National Front, has surged with frontrunner Emmanuel Macron’s lead evaporating according to the Opinionway poll of voting intentions.

But the 48-year-old, who wants to take France out of the European Union, would still lose to Macron and conservative Francois Fillon in the May 7 run-off for the presidency, the poll showed.

Checking out the fakest Fake-News Checkers

February 20, 2017

Since President Donald Trump won the presidential election in November, there’s been an explosion of “fake-news” checker sites, some cloaked behind a veil of anonymity.

trustIn some cases, Americans really have fallen for “fake news.” Just days ago, 20th Century Fox apologized for creating “fake news” sites – such as as the Houston Leader, the Salt Lake City Guardian, Sacramento Dispatch, the New York Morning Post and Indianapolis Gazette – as part of a promotional campaign for its psychological thriller, “A Cure for Wellness.”

But on the heels of media hysteria over the trend, now it seems everyone claims to be a foremost expert on the topic of spotting “fake news.”

“Trust us,” they say.

In light of the recent flurry of leaks by the so-called “deep state”, which includes such agencies as the NSA and FBI and which last week lead to the resignation of Mike Flynn after a phone recording of his phone conversation with the Russian ambassador was leaked to the WaPo and other anti-Trump publications, an article published on January 12 by the NYT has generated renewed interest.

Lyin’ Brian Williams rips ‘Fake News’

February 18, 2017

President Donald Trump is trying to discredit the media, according to MSNBC’s Brian Williams, who discredited himself over a fake news story during the Iraq War.
“The press provided basically the most essential task that the Founders intended for us to do, which was, we outed a public official, who was lying to the public, about the nature of his contacts about what many would define as a hostile foreign power,” Williams claimed on MSNBC’s The 11th Hour. “That is the most basic function of a free press in this — in our society, and the president’s response to that was to have a semi-meltdown, and to accuse us all of purveying fake news, when in fact, his own actions, which were to fire General Flynn, proved that that news was spot on.”
“It was 100% accurate.”

February 17, 2017

Student demands for censorship get a lot of coverage. Spiked Online’s Free Speech University Rankings, now in its third annual edition, argues that there is a “crisis of free speech on campus”.

You can barely go a few days without encountering a new op-ed covering censorship on campus.

Maajid Nawaz describes the students demanding censorship as members of the “regressive left”. Milo Yiannopoulos calls them “snowflakes”.
