Yahoo Report of Iowa Republican is a Case of Half News

There’s some buzz going around that a Republican State Congressman from Iowa recently left the Party and is resigning his seat in the Iowa Congress. That’s true, and the left has picked it up and gleefully run with it.

As I have a Yahoo email address, I get their newsfeed automatically. Yahoo is decidedly leftist, which is why I’ve retained it and read it regularly, as I do CNN, the HuffPo, ThinkProgress, VOX and others. It’s good to stay abreast of what the enemies of liberty are thinking, both abroad and within our own borders.

The July 18th Yahoo article is entitled, “Republican politician quits party over Trump’s ‘erratic and misguided leadership’ following Putin summit.” I thought it interesting, so I read on.

“Ken Rizer, a retired Air Force Pilot, took to Facebook to announce his decision after the US leader met with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki and suggested that he did not believe that Russia had meddled in the 2016 presidential election.”

“As for me, I can no longer call myself a Republican given the erratic and misguided leadership of the president. I will always be a (Ronald) Reagan conservative, but find no place for such views in Trump’s world. Until the Republican Party recovers its values, my party affiliation will be ‘No party,’” wrote Rizer. read more

Kelly Jane Torrance of The Weekly Standard wrote a startling article on “Our self-obsessed parochial press corps” in the magazine’s May 7 edition.

Was a CNN Rescue Staged?

from American Thinker:

In Houston, is CNN that desperate?

After getting egg all over its face from an angry Houston-area flood victim who didn’t like a microphone stuck in her face, CNN

seems to be resorting to increasingly desperate tactics, venturing possibly into fake news.

Wiith suspicious timing, a CNN camera crew team, led by Drew Griffin, rescued a Beaumont-area flood victim from a floating truck, positioned right behind the camera. The reporter and his team dropped their camera stand-up work and apparently ran to rescue the man from the submerged vehicle, making themselves heroes, all the more so because the victim this time explicitly stated that they saved his lives. Business Insider reports: read more

Podcast – Liberal Media Shields Democrat Criminal – Should a President Receive a Pension – Venezuelan Protesters Throwing Poo Bombs

The New York Times must have been compelled to report on the conviction of one of their own, former U.S. Congresswoman Corrine Brown, but did their best to never mention that she is a Democrat. They can’t wait to announce when Republicans go up the river, but hid the fact that Brown was a liberal hack Dem.

It was decided long ago that a former President will receive a pension. If this is the case, it should not be tied to whether or not they choose to cash in after they leave office. It should not be political.

In Venezuela, protesters have taken to throwing anything they can when clashing with police. They’ve design a new weapon – called the poopootov cocktail.

How many times has it been that a Muslim has claimed some abuse at the hands of some right wing nut? Lately these “nuts” have all been described as Trump supporters. And how many times has the Muslim later been shown to have lied. Let me answer that…a lot. This time is no different.

A 33 year old mother of two was burned within a inch of her life by her boyfriend who claim he still loves her and it was an accident. He was recently convicted and will be sent to prison for 11 years, while the poor woman has received a life sentence of anguish. read more
