Media Mistake and other things

The conservative media watchdog Media Research Center is has filed a Federal Election Commission Commission (FEC) complaint against Bloomberg LP, the owner of Bloomberg News, Michael Bloomberg and Mike Bloomberg 2020, Inc.

MRC blog Newsbusters reports

“According to FEC law, the ‘media exemption’ that would normally exempt media organizations from federal campaign finance disclosure laws does not apply if ‘the facility is owned or controlled by any political party, political committee, or candidate’ should the organization fail to ‘give reasonably equal coverage to all opposing candidates,’”

“Bloomberg News is making a mockery of legitimate journalism. They have consciously chosen to abandon their journalistic responsibilities in favor of what is politically convenient,” MRC President Brent Bozell said in a statement.

 

Tucker Carlson invited Florida GOP rep. Matt Gaetz onto his show Monday night. During his appearance Gaetz exposed the Saudi government’s role in supporting some of the 9/11 hijackers.

This in the wake of the false flag shooting at an Naval base in Pensacola, which is part of Gaetz’s district.

“The first thing we need to do is join Governor DeSantis’s call for the Kingdom to step up for the victims,” Gaetz explained. “The second thing we need to do is what Senator Graham and I will be calling for, and that is an immediate suspension of the program wherein we bring Saudis here to the United States without sufficient vetting to stop something like this.”

Continuing, the congressman wondered, “But at some point, we’ve got to look at this relationship more broadly, Tucker, and wonder, ‘How much from Saudi Arabia are we willing to take?’”

You know, people triggered by Trump, conservatives and anti-globalism…SHOULD BE DECLARED MENTALLY RETARDED, UNSTABLE AND SUBJECT TO MASS MEDICATION.

Take this case near Lansing, MI.

Truck toll a roadblock

Governor Ned Lamont still has tolls on his mind.  In this case it’s for trucks, and Republicans will be looking to put the brakes on this.

State Senate Republican Leader Len Fasano in an email to subscribers said there is a major wrinkle in Lamont’s proposal.  And not just the GOP, but truckers are angered about this.

The decision advances the trucking industry’s lawsuit challenging Rhode Island’s truck-only tolls as unconstitutional, claiming Rhode Island’s tolling program discriminates against out-of-state entities under the dormant Commerce Clause.

In a statement Friday, Fasano said

“Gov. Lamont said he would be releasing a new proposal to toll trucks by the end of this week. In light of yesterday (Thursday)’s federal appeals court decision advancing the lawsuit in Rhode Island over truck tolls, Gov. Lamont needs to call off his trucks-only tolling plan. It is clear that Republicans have the only viable transportation plan.

“The court’s decision gives credence to the trucking industry’s challenge. It ties up this issue in litigation for years to come, leaves doubt and uncertainty in the ability to toll only trucks, and creates significant economic risk for taxpayers. The only transportation plan that is viable today is the Senate Republican no-tolls, no-tax-increase plan FASTR CT. If Gov. Lamont is serious about transportation infrastructure and moving Connecticut forward, let’s get together now and advance the Republican plan through the legislature.

 

This comes as media reports say Lamont wants a special session with the General Assembly in about two weeks.

 

Some are still looking for more details on the governor’s plan for tolls as well.

“Let’s start with trucks only. You don’t want cars and trucks. I salute Democrats in the House, they have come forward with a plan,” Lamont said.

Last week, Lamont met with Democrats and Republicans about a plan for tolls.

Now he’s ready for a vote. In a letter to legislative leaders, Lamont wants lawmakers to take up transportation and tolls in a special session.

He says he understands this is a “difficult and expedited timeframe”, but these are “important issues which require resolution before year-end”.

 

Republicans wonder about plans.

 

A big complaint is that there are no spreadsheets, no paperwork on where tolls would be and how much they would generate.

“I think it’s hard for Republicans to support a toll plan given there is no toll plan on the table. My understanding is they will redraft some numbers and get back to use with other details, but it’s difficult to find support in the House and Senate for a toll plan,” said Senator Len Fasano.

 

 

The UN is behind Trump impeachment

That’s at least according to Lisa Haven…and she has evidence to back it up.

 

Signing-off…Denise D’Ascenzo

If there were great female TV news anchors at least here in Connecticut, among the greatest would have to be Janet Peckingpaugh (all three channels 3, 8 and 30), Diane Smith (8), JoAnn Nesti (30), Becky Surran (News 12), Keisha Grant (30) and Denise D’Ascenzo (3).

Sadly that last name, the longest serving reporter anchor in WFSB/WTIC-TV’s 62 year history, suddenly died at her home.  The reason is unknown. 

At channel 3’s website a message was posted.

 

We are devastated for her husband and daughter who were her whole life.  There are no words that could begin to summarize this loss for our WFSB family.

 

Denise was an award-winning reporter and anchor for the station who came from Cleveland’s WJW-TV, then a CBS affiliate, now a Fox affiliate.

Channel 3 on its YouTube page posted this video of Dennis House making the sad announcement.

 

Rivals in the business, like WTNH Channel 8 paid tribute.

For the past 25 years Denise has anchored alongside Dennis House. This evening, House announced the sad news and offered a touching tribute.

“The grief we are all feeling is immeasurable,” House said. “We are devastated for her husband and daughter, who were really her whole life. On a personal note, my sister, my TV wife, my best friend here, and my co-anchor for 25 years.”

 

WVIT, NBC CT, who like WTNH, honored Denise and posted a message from Governor Ned Lamont.

“As the longest-serving news anchor at a single television station in Connecticut, Denise D’Ascenzo has entered millions of homes in our state for more than thirty years. Through her dedicated work and dependable reporting, she earned the distinction of being a trusted name in journalism, and her reporting most certainly made an impact,” Governor Ned Lamont said in a statement.

Friday buffet

Why wait til Sunday?  But trust me after digesting some of these stories you may want your stomach pumped.

There was a false flag incident in Pensacola, FL at a Naval Station there.  Turns out the person doing the shooting who was among the four killed…WAS A SAUDI NATIONAL.

Breitbart reports this may have been a terror attack.  Even ask Congressman Matt Gaetz.

The gunman opened fire Friday morning, killing three innocents and causing numerous others to be transported to the hospital for injuries.

The Associated Press reports that the Pensacola gunman was an aviation student from Saudi Arabia.

NBC News reports that the gunman’s name was Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani.

NBC 6 South Florida tweeted a photo reportedly showing Pensacola gunman Mohammed Saeed Alsharmrani.

NBC 6 South Florida is WTVJ Miami.

Breitbart’s gun man AWR Hawkins exposes the truth about this base.

On December 6, 2019, Breitbart News reported that Naval Air Station Pensacola is a gun-free zone. The station’s firearm policy, as described by Commander, Navy Region Mid-Atlantic, notes:

While federal and state laws differ widely on the subject, regulations pertaining to the registration, transportation, and storage of firearms on Naval Installations in the Mid-Atlantic area of responsibility are clear. According to the instruction, all hands share responsibility for adhering to regulations pertaining to the registration, transportation, and storage of firearms in the AOR.

And leave it to bleeping bull Warren to whine before anything was even known!

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said our so-called ally Saudi Arabia, homeland of most of the 9/11 terrorists owes a debt to the victims.

“One of the things I talked to [President Donald Trump] about is, given this is a foreign national and employee of a foreign service is… The government of Saudi Arabia needs to make things better for these victims,” De Santis told reporters. “I think they’re gonna owe a debt here given that this is one of their individuals.”

On this Friday before the release of the IG report from Horowitz, an ABC News “legal analyst” said questions about Hunter Biden “have merit.”

On of all places ABC’s “The View,” co-host and legal analyst Sunny Hostin said…

“About that very issue. So this is an issue that has some merit. It at least had the Obama administration concerned. So what is he going to do with that? You know, what is he going to do about that question? It’s not a meritless question.”

Quite an observation there.

In an example of a sheriff living up to his oath, one in Culpeper County vows to deputize thousands of citizens if the state assembly, now run by leftists fueled by communist Fairfax County and the swamp that is Washington, passes anti-gun laws.

Infowars reports

At a board meeting Tuesday where a resolution was passed declaring Culpeper County a “constitutional county,” Sheriff Scott Jenkins said he will vigorously defend the “God-given” right of citizens to own firearms.

“The right to bear arms—some believe that the Second Amendment gives us that right, when in fact it’s a God-given right. If you don’t believe in God, it’s a law of nature that every creature can defend their lives from threats,” Jenkins said.

“If the legislature decides to restrict certain weapons I feel harms our community, I will swear in thousands of auxiliary deputies in Culpeper,” the sheriff stated, according to The Culpeper Star-Exponent. “There’s no limit to the number of people I can swear in… Personally, I don’t think some of the bills that are proposed will pass, I don’t think we’re that far left in Virginia.”

To this sheriff…you sir are an OATHKEEPER!

The impeachment freak show

There are details you are not hearing about the three so-called Constitutional experts during Wednesday’s impeachment hearing, unless you read Breitbart or Infowars or The Gateway Pundit.

First off, let’s deal with the only adult in the room, Professor Jonathan Turley.  Even though he said he did not vote for Trump, it never came through in his…lecture…if you will.

As for the escapees from the Communist insane asylum, we start with Harvard Law School professor Noah Feldman.

Breitbart Thursday looked at how Feldman is reportedly playing a critical role in Facebook’s establishment of its content oversight board, colloquially dubbed the “Facebook Supreme Court.”

This Chinese-style board will “review cases from banned Facebook users who argue that the termination of their accounts was unwarranted. It is meant to give banned users the right to appeal — but this is corporate due process, not state due process. The “Facebook Supreme Court” will be set up by Facebook and could be shut down at any time by Facebook.”

According to a report by Harvard Law Today, Feldman first proposed the idea of a “Facebook Supreme Court” in January 2018. The purpose, the report said, is “to help Facebook ‘balance competing values that range from supporting free expression to combating hate speech.’ ”

This is censorship by a foreign government because Facebook and other big tech is working with the Chi-Coms to destroy all freedoms.

Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz took Feldman to task during his questioning, and pointed out his clear anti-Trump bias.

Gaetz then pointed out that witness Noah Feldman, professor at Harvard Law School, had written articles entitled: “Trump’s Wiretap Tweets Raise Risk of Impeachment” and “Mar-a-Lago Ad Belongs in Impeachment File.” Gaetz also noted that Feldman was the subject of an article that said, “A Harvard law professor thinks Trump could be impeached over fake news accusations.”

Gaetz also got Feldman to admit that he once wrote an article entitled, “It’s Hard to Take Impeachment Seriously Now.”

The Gateway Puindit took it a little further.

Facebook has been shutting down traffic to conservative websites since the 2016 election.

The fact that Facebook is targeting conservative publishers should not be a surprise to Gateway Pundit readers.

We have been reporting on this for two years now.

In July 2018 we released a study where we looked at several top conservative websites and discovered that the publishers had lost an average of 93% of their Facebook traffic.

This is a bloodbath.  Facebook wiped out conservative content to American users.

In 2016 suburban voters and women would check their Facebook pages and see conservative news.  That is no longer the case.  And on Tuesday these voters chose Democrats.

Facebook wiped out conservative publishers. Americans will no longer see articles from conservative websites even if you follow them. Facebook took advertising dollars from all of these businesses and then changed their business plan after the 2016 election to help Democrats.

It’s working.

Facebook was able to eliminate conservative content – and conservative content to suburban voters in the midterm elections.  This helped Democrats tremendously.

On Thursday unhinged and irate Harvard Law Professor Noah Feldman went before the House Judiciary Committee for several hours to rant against Donald Trump and push for his impeachment.

 

The site even claimed Feldman LIED UNDER OATH.

 

Now let’s get to the MOST unhinged, Stanford Law Professor (and Elizabeth Warren supporter) Pamela Karlan.

During her diatribe she went to the one place you do not go…A FATHER’S SON.  Namely Barron Trump.

During the impeachment hearings, Stanford Law Professor and Appellate Attorney Pamela Karlan used Trump’s son Barron as an example of why President Trump could not use his power to bestow titles of nobility, unlike a king.

“So while the president can name his son Barron, he can’t make him a baron,” Kaplan said in response to a question from Rep. Shelia Jackson Lee during the hearing.

That statement seemed to get under the skin of First Lady Melania Trump…

“A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics. Pamela Karlan, you should be ashamed of your very angry and obviously biased public pandering, and using a child to do it,” the first lady wrote on Twitter.

And that wasn’t all, as White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham also voiced her disgust.

“Classless move by a Democratic ‘witness,’” Grisham wrote on Twitter. “Professor Karlan uses a teenage boy who has nothing to do with this joke of a hearing (and deserves privacy) as a punchline.”

And even THAT’S not all.  If you watch CNN or MSNBC or “news” programs on Fox you won’t see this story of just how mentally deranged and dangerous this feminazi is.

Breitbart reports on her massive stage 3 Trump Derangement Syndrome…

In a 2017 American Constitution Society panel discussion — which also included former Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol  and was moderated by the Washington Post‘s Ruth Marcus — Karlan repeatedly launched into rants about Trump’s “outrageous” behavior both before and after he was elected, repeatedly saying that he “worries” her and questioning whether he is able to tell the difference between truth and falsehood.

She shared the anecdote about avoiding the Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC, in her very first statement for the panel. “I came in from the airport yesterday and I got off the bus from Dulles down at L’Enfant Plaza and I walked up to the hotel and as I was walking past what used to be the old post office building and is now Trump hotel… I had to cross the street, of course,” she said.

“Are you staying there?” Neil Siegel, a fellow panelist, asked.

Karlan responded, “God, no! Never!”

NO surprise that neocon imp Bill Kristol was at this shred the Constitution event.

The tolerant left…NOT!

Speaking of crazy leftists, an update on the One America News/Rachel Maddow lawsuit.  John Nolte at Breitbart reports “Area 53” Maddow as Hannity calls “her” doesn’t always mean what she says.  The so-called Alex Jones defense…REALLY?!

Maddow lawyer Theodore J. “Ted” Boutrous Jr. argued the leftist host was offering up her “own unique expression” of her views to capture what she saw as the “ridiculous” nature of the undisputed facts.

“Her comment, therefore, is a quintessential statement ‘of rhetorical hyperbole, incapable of being proved true or false,’” he said.

Nolte counters…

There he is, straight up admitting she engages in “rhetorical hyperbole, incapable of being proved true or false.”

Good grief, she’s the primetime star of a NEWS network!

So what we have here is the biggest “star” at NBC News essentially using the same defense as Alex Jones.

After he repeatedly claimed the Sandy Hook school massacre was a hoax, the families sued him and Jones’ initial defense was to claim he cannot be sued because he’s a “performance artist.”

And now Maddow’s attorney has been boxed into the same “really literally” corner: Hey, what Rachel Maddow says isn’t factual; it’s “hyperbole,” her “own unique expression!”

Wow.

Me? If I had Maddow money, I’d apologize to OAN, publicly retract my statement, and settle before admitting I was NBC’s own Alex Jones.

 

 

AMBER ALERT

The Ansonia police department has activated the CT AMBER ALERT for a missing one-year-old girl.

NBC CT reports the alert for 1-year-old Venssa Morales was issued Wednesday afternoon. Police said they at first issued a Silver Alert due to a lack of a vehicle description, a person the baby might be with or a potential destination.

Venessa has brown hair and brown eyes. No information was available on what Venessa might be wearing. Officers said she was last seen by relatives on Friday night.

Police responded to a home on Myrtle Avenue around 1 p.m. Monday after getting a request for a welfare check when the woman did not show up for work or call in sick. When police went to the home, they said they did not get an answer.

Later that evening, officers were called back to the home around 7:30 after getting a second welfare check request. Police said the victim’s family called them to report they had not heard from her.

Eventually, police found the baby’s mother dead and no sign of the child.  Police are investigating the death as a homicide.

Venesa has white eyes and brown hair.  She weighs 70 pounds and is two feet two inches tall.

State police and the FBI are helping with the search for the girl.

If you have any information you are asked to call Ansonia Police at 203-735-1885.
