Social Media Pioneer Gab Launches ‘Drudge Report’ Alternative, Alleges Drudge Has Been Bought by Big Tech

by Shane Trejo, Big League Politics:

The free speech social media platform Gab is going to war with Matt Drudge, implying that the world’s leading news aggregator has sold out to the globalist establishment.

Gab has launched Gab Trends to provide a people-powered alternative to the Drudge Report heading into the 2020 presidential election. The fake news will be at an all-time high next year, as the globalist establishment will be waging war to boot President Donald Trump from office.

Mainstream Journalists Who Refuse To Defend Dissident Journalists Are Worshippers Of Power

by Caitlin Johnstone, Caitlin Johnstone:

Alternative media circles have been buzzing for the last two days ever since news broke about the arrest of Grayzone journalist Max Blumenthal, who was reportedly jailed for two days after a SWAT-style police team showed up threatening to break his door down last Friday.

Blumenthal is charged with simple assault alleged to have taken place five months ago during the notorious standoff when the US government was working to remove the official Venezuelan government from its DC embassy and replace it with diplomats from the Guaido-led puppet government it was attempting to force into power. Dissident journalists, including Blumenthal, stationed themselves in the embassy in opposition to the illegal eviction and to document the behavior of the evictors. Blumenthal calls the assault charge “a 100 percent false, fabricated, bogus, untrue, and malicious lie.”

Nolte: Counting the Ways the Washington Post Loves Them Some al-Baghdadi

by John Nolte, Breitbart:

As soon as I learned President Trump had ordered a successful mission to bag ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, I knew exactly how the corporate media would respond.

I knew the usual suspects at our failing, far-left, fake news outlets such as CNN, NBC News, the New York Times, and Washington Post, would attempt to spin one of America’s great days as the exact opposite. We would be told audacious lies about how taking out al-Baghdadi would only make things worse, only proves Trump’s Syria policy is a disaster, how this successful mission happened in spite of Trump, and that Trump’s perfectly-calibrated statement and willingness to answer the media’s questions at length would be twisted into a crass victory lap.

The Real News Is What is not in the News

“Only those who do not wish to see can be deceived.”  ~ Dianna Hardy, Saving Eve

It has been said that hidden truths are unspoken lies. There are plenty of lies in the mainstream news today, whether it is related to politics and politicians, to important events, to war, to economic trickery and deceit, and on and on, but what about the truths that are hidden from view? These are lies as well, but these lies hold dark secrets, as lies of omission are the most sinister of all.

Negative Press Always Has to Find an Issue

by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics:

It is really interesting how the press is so biased, that no matter the issue, they MUST simply spin it against Trump. It is really getting so bad these days that the press has surrendered all impartiality and trustworthiness. They were criticizing Trump for pulling out troops from Syria saying ISIS would be given free rein. They failed to understand that all along they were targeting the head of ISIS and intended to take him out. When that takes place, the credit belongs to the military in spite of Trump. It is just interesting how skewed the press has become and they no longer report news, it is all manufacturing news.

Social Media Annihilates WaPo’s ‘Religious Scholar’ al-Baghdadi Headline

by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:

“Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at the helm of Islamic State, dies at 48”

This is the actual headline from the Washington Post before they changed it.

WATCH: Media, Dems Bash Trump Over Killing Of ISIS Leader

by Chris Menahan, Information Liberation:

The media and Democrats’ hysterical reactions to President Trump allegedly killing Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi makes me think Baghdadi might actually be dead.

Just like with Obama Bin Laden, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is one of those “Emmanuel Goldstein”-type figures who has been “killed” multiple times but always seems to come back to life when a boogeyman is needed to justify keeping our forever wars going.

This case could be quite different if Baghdadi’s killing is used as a reason for Trump to pull our troops out of Syria.

WaPo blasted with #WaPoDeathNotices memes for dubbing ISIS leader ‘austere religious scholar’ in head-scratching headline

from RT:

The Washington Post’s bizarre decision to describe terror chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as an “austere religious scholar” in an obituary has brought a storm of criticism on the paper, and spawned hundreds of #WaPoDeathNotices memes.

As authorities offered confirmation that US forces had killed the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) leader in a raid on a safe house in northwestern Syria on Saturday night, the paper rolled out on obit marking the death of the barbarous jihadist by describing him as the “austere religious scholar at the helm of the Islamic State.”

HUH? Now the Fake News Claims Hillary Clinton DIDN’T Say Tulsi Gabbard is Being ‘Groomed’ by Russia

by Shane Trejo, Big League Politics:

The fake news is trying to re-write history.

After failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton referred to Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) as a “Russian asset” being groomed to sabotage Democrat victory in 2020 last week, it caused a stir that gained Gabbard considerable media attention.

Trump Campaign Charges CNN With Breaking Federal Law Over Bias

by Bob Adelmann, The New American:

Outraged over disclosures by Project Veritas that Jeff Zucker, president of CNN Worldwide, is using his CNN network to attack and bring down the Trump presidency, Donald Trump’s reelection campaign sent a scathing letter to Zucker and his attorney on Wednesday. When it was released to the public on Friday the letter revealed that it charged them and the network with violating the Lanham Act.
