DeRay McKesson Sues Faux News for Lies On Air

Considering what happened to Gawker a few months back, Faux News may want to put a muzzle on their “house negroes”. That “First Amendment defense got thrown out the first day.

Added to that is the incredible losing streak by the Faux Lawyers – if they aren’t making multi-million payouts due to Faux News rapists and gropers, they are making multi-million dollar  payouts due to Faux News racists and bigots.

Add this one to the list. If you follow the link to DeRay’s page and watch the video, the defamation case is pretty straightforward.

Payday! Biiiiiiiiig Payday.

At some point Faux is going to have to reign in theif clowns.

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro claims free speech defense in Black Lives Matter lawsuit

A Black Lives Matter activist is suing Fox News host Jeanine Pirro for defamation after she claimed during an appearance on Fox & Friends that he directed someone to throw a rock at a police officer’s face.

Early this week DeRay McKesson—who was himself sued along with the Black Lives Matter movement by a police officer who was seriously injured in the incident at a Baton Rouge protest in 2016— filed the suit against Pirro.

The officer’s case was dismissed in September by a federal judge in Louisiana who ruled McKesson couldn’t be held liable for the officer’s injuries and that there was no evidence that he gave specific instructions to the unidentified protester who threw the rock.

A day after the ruling, Pirro—who hosts the show Justice with Judge Jeanine—appeared as a commentator on Fox & Friends and said “McKesson, the organizer, actually was directing people, directing the violence.”

., I was found not guilty & I didn’t direct any violence. In fact, I was protesting the violence of the police. Stop lying.

During the segment Pirro points out that the judge who dismissed the suit was appointed by former President Barack Obama, an African American. She claimed the ruling was motivated by politics and made by an activist judge.

McKesson claims that Pirro defamed him by making the statements while discussing the lawsuit after it had been dismissed.

“Defendant Pirro, a lawyer for over 40 years discussing a well-publicized matter, was aware that these outrageous statements were false and made them with the specific intention of harming Mr. McKesson,” his suit claims.

“Falsely stating that Mr. McKesson assaults police officers has seriously endangered Mr. McKesson’s physical safety,” it continued.

In September Pirro responded to McKesson’s concerns and questions about her statement from The Washington Post. “Based on 32 years in law enforcement, you can only be found not guilty after a trial. McKesson was not tried. I was quoting paragraph 17 and 19 from court documents,” she said.

Fox News claims that Pirro’s statements are protected First Amendment speech. “We informed Mr. McKesson’s counsel that our commentary was fully protected under the First Amendment and the privilege for reports of judicial proceedings. We will defend this case vigorously,” the network said.

USA Today Unloads on the Chumph!

Wow! Some folks have had enough!

USA Today’s Editorial Board unloads on the Chumph.

A president who’d all but call a senator a whore is unfit to clean toilets in Obama’s presidential library or to shine George W. Bush’s shoes

And the chickenshit Democrats are too cowardly to stand up….Again.

Will Trump’s lows ever hit rock bottom?

A president who’d all but call a senator a whore is unfit to clean toilets in Obama’s presidential library or to shine George W. Bush’s shoes: Our view

With his latest tweet, clearly implying that a United States senator would trade sexual favors for campaign cash, President Trump has shown he is not fit for office. Rock bottom is no impediment for a president who can always find room for a new low.

Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Chuck Schumer and someone who would come to my office “begging” for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump. Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday dismissed the president’s smear as a misunderstanding because he used similar language about men. Of course, words used about men and women are different. When candidate Trump said a journalist was bleeding from her “wherever,” he didn’t mean her nose.

And as is the case with all of Trump’s digital provocations, the president’s words were deliberate. He pours the gasoline of sexist language and lights the match gleefully knowing how it will burst into flame in a country reeling from the #MeToo moment.

A president who would all but call Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand a whore is not fit to clean the toilets in the Barack Obama Presidential Library or to shine the shoes of George W. Bush.

This isn’t about the policy differences we have with all presidents or our disappointment in some of their decisions. Obama and Bush both failed in many ways. They broke promises and told untruths, but the basic decency of each man was never in doubt.

Donald Trump, the man, on the other hand, is uniquely awful. His sickening behavior is corrosive to the enterprise of a shared governance based on common values and the consent of the governed.

It should surprise no one how low he went with Gillibrand. When accused during the campaign of sexually harassing or molesting women in the past, Trump’s response was to belittle the looks of his accusers. Last October, Trump suggested that he never would have groped Jessica Leeds on an airplane decades ago: “Believe me, she would not be my first choice, that I can tell you.” Trump mocked another accuser, former People reporter Natasha Stoynoff, “Check out her Facebook, you’ll understand.”  Other celebrities and politicians have denied accusations, but none has stooped as low as suggesting that their accusers weren’t attractive enough to be honored with their gropes.

If recent history is any guide, the unique awfulness of the Trump era in U.S. politics is only going to get worse. Trump’s utter lack of morality, ethics and simple humanity has been underscored during his 11 months in office. Let us count the ways:

  • He is enthusiastically supporting Alabama’s Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, who has been accused of pursuing — and in one case molesting and in another assaulting — teenagers as young as 14 when Moore was a county prosecutor in his 30s. On Tuesday, Trump summed up his willingness to support a man accused of criminal conduct: “Roy Moore will always vote with us.”
  • Trump apparently is going for some sort of record for lying while in office. As of mid-November, he had made 1,628 misleading or false statements in 298 days in office. That’s 5.5 false claims per day, according to a count kept by The Washington Post’s fact-checkers.
  • Trump takes advantage of any occasion — even Monday’s failed terrorist attack in New York — to stir racial, religious or ethnic strife. Congress “must end chain migration,” he said Monday, because the terror suspect “entered our country through extended-family chain migration, which is incompatible with national security.” So because one man — 27-year-old Akayed Ullah, a lawful permanent resident of the U.S. who came from Bangladesh on a family immigrant visa in 2011 —  is accused of attacking America, all immigrants brought to this country by family are suspect? Trump might have some credibility if his criticism of immigrants was solely about terrorists. It isn’t.  It makes no difference to him if an immigrant is a terrorist or a federal judge. He once smeared an Indiana-born judge whose parents emigrated from Mexico. It’s all the same to this president.
  • A man who clearly wants to put his stamp on the government, Trump hasn’t even done his job when it comes to filling key government positions that require Senate confirmation. As of last week, Trump had failed to nominate anyone for 60% of 1,200 key positions he can fill to keep the government running smoothly.
  • Trump has shown contempt for ethical strictures that have bound every president in recent memory.  He has refused to release his tax returns, with the absurd excuse that it’s because he is under audit.  He has refused to put his multibillion dollar business interests in a blind trust and peddles the fiction that putting them in the hands of his sons does the same thing.

Not to mention calling white supremacists “very fine people,” pardoning a lawless sheriff, firing a respected FBI director, and pushing the Justice Department to investigate his political foes.

It is a shock that only six Democratic senators are calling for our unstable president to resign.

The nation doesn’t seek nor expect perfect presidents, and some have certainly been deeply flawed. But a president who shows such disrespect for the truth, for ethics, for the basic duties of the job and for decency toward others fails at the very essence of what has always made America great.

Another Chumph Lie About Obama Implodes At John Kelly’s Family Expense

Another of the POS Chumph lies, this one embarassing his Chief of Staff John Kelly

The Chumph’s lie – that no other President had called the parents or spouses of our servicemen who had died in the line of duty.

This is not only criminally embarrassing to John Kelly and his family but shows a complete lack of empathy for this honorable man and his family’s feelings to be used as props for the POS’s lies.

The Plastic Patriots waiving their little flags in their false support of our Military who don’t have a problem with this or support the Chumph need to outed for the hypocritical POS’s they are.

John Kelly and his wife sat with Michelle Obama at Gold Star family gathering after son’s death: report

 

President Donald Trump politicized the death of his chief of staff’s son to slur his predecessor — and it appears he may not be telling the whole truth.

Trump claimed Monday that President Barack Obama did not call the families of slain service members, and he suggested Tuesday that the former president had disrespected retired Gen. John Kelly by neglecting to call when his Marine son was killed.

“You could ask General Kelly if he got a call from Obama,” Trump said.

It’s not clear that Obama offered condolences to Kelly by phone, but CNN’s Jeff Zeleny said the retired general and his wife joined first lady Michelle Obama at her table during a White House breakfast for Gold Star families in 2011.

Gen. Kelly and wife attended Gold Star families breakfast at WH in 2011 and sat at Mrs. Obama’s table, person familiar with breakfast says.

The Associated Press confirmed that White House visitor logs showed that the Kelly family attended the event.

“President Obama engaged families of the fallen and wounded warriors throughout his presidency through calls, letters, visits to [Arlington Cemetery], visits to Walter Reed, visits to Dover, and regular meetings with Gold Star families at the White House and across the country,” a former White House official told Politico.

Second Lt. Robert Kelly was killed at age 29 while leading a platoon in Afghanistan in November 2010, and his father delivered a speech four days later about military sacrifices and the troops’ growing isolation from society.

His father has largely avoided speaking publicly about his family’s loss since then, and asked the Marine Corps officer who introduced him ahead of that impassioned speech not to mention his son.

“We are only one of 5,500 American families who have suffered the loss of a child in this war,” Kelly told the Washington Post six years ago. “The death of my boy simply cannot be made to seem any more tragic than the others.”

Faux News Lies About Mass Shooter in Vegas

The Police are collecting information on the murderer in Las Vegas. A lot of things are unknown at this point. . At least one of the weapons found with the shooter inn the Hotel room was converted to full automatic. The likely culprit is an AK-47 variant Police found on a tripod mount. Automatic weapons are only legal in the US for a civilian to own with a special license from the ATF. At this point, and until they get the guns studied in their lab, they don’t know if the 10 guns found in the hotel room were modified. There has been no statement on the shooter having a special license to own automatic weapons. Ownership without a license is illegal.

Faux New’s assertion that all of the guns owned by the killer were “legal”…

Is a lie.

Nice to see Deppidy Lawn Jockey has found part-time work though.

Sessions (Again) Caught Red Handed Lying About Russians

The timing on his one looks like an inside job from the Chumph Administration. Sessions caught red handed lying again about Russian contacts during the election in NSA Intercepts.

They got the whole conversation on tape (like I been telling certain folks). And there is likely a LOT MORE of this nailing the Chumph’s synchophats and the CHumph to the wall.

Looks like they are throwing their boy Sessions under the bus.

WasPo is knocking it out of the park!

Image result for sessions in jail

Sessions has now been caught in multiple lies about his meetings and discussions with Russian agents. That is not only Perjury – it is Treason. His ass needs to be removed from office immediately.

Sessions discussed Trump campaign-related matters with Russian ambassador, U.S. intelligence intercepts show

Russia’s ambassador to Washington told his superiors in Moscow that he discussed campaign-related matters, including policy issues important to Moscow, with Jeff Sessions during the 2016 presidential race, contrary to public assertions by the embattled attorney general, according to current and former U.S. officials.

Ambassador Sergey Kislyak’s accounts of two conversations with Sessions — then a top foreign policy adviser to Republican candidate Donald Trump — were intercepted by U.S. spy agencies, which monitor the communications of senior Russian officials both in the United States and in Russia. Sessions initially failed to disclose his contacts with Kislyak and then said that the meetings were not about the Trump campaign.

One U.S. official said that Sessions — who testified that he has no recollection of an April encounter — has provided “misleading” statements that are “contradicted by other evidence.” A former official said that the intelligence indicates that Sessions and Kislyak had “substantive” discussions on matters including Trump’s positions on Russia-related issues and prospects for U.S.-Russia relations in a Trump administration.

Sessions has said repeatedly that he never discussed campaign-related issues with Russian officials and that it was only in his capacity as a U.S. senator that he met with Kislyak.

“I never had meetings with Russian operatives or Russian intermediaries about the Trump campaign,” Sessions said in March when he announced that he would recuse himself from matters relating to the FBI probe of Russian interference in the election and any connections to the Trump campaign….more here
