What exactly is Fake News? The Fake News War!

fake-news

Since before the american election last year, we have been hearing more and more about “fake news”, so much to the extent that the term has become part of the general vernacular of most people, and even those who don’t understand what the Fake News War is about, but will readily defend their favorite news agency.    So this is the break down on what exactly is fake news and why this is so important in the way it breaks down the public trust in the mainstream media outlets.

Lies by Omission.

Let’s face it all media outlets lie by omission, and there are some who at least try to be fully honest, however, there is some media outlets that stand out in doing this.  I will refer the most blatant one, the one that everyone loves to defend but has been proven time and time again to lie to the public.

What I mean by lies by omission is presenting the news but leaving out things to skew the perspective in favor of whatever agenda you wish to push.     For example, the election and Hilary Clinton.

CNN was blatant in this and to this day,  as I write this, they are still lying to the public about Trump.

Here is how they do it.

1.  Cherry picking.     They will present only certain parts of the story.   That can be video footage of a crying “victim” or  picking or choosing a specific sentence in a speech, which taken out of the context of the paragraph being said sounds damning.     CNN did this and still to this day does it.

I will use the famous “Grab her by the pussy” comment that they used from a 20 year old recording of Donald Trump that they recorded while he was chatting with a reporter off record during his Time on the apprentice and when he was funding the Miss America Pageant.

The context they conveniently left out when you hear the entire conversation was that he was talking about groupies.    Groupies are people who are  enamored with someone of celebrity status.   What Trump was discussing was how these people, in particular the women.  And as well when it came to that sentence in particular, he was talking about one experience in particular about his encounter with a groupie , who “WOULD have let him grab her by the pussy”, if he had wanted to.

This is a very big difference from the mainstream narrative of “Grab her by the pussy”.   This narrative makes it sound like he DID grab her by the pussy and he was bragging.   This lie by omission was done by remove key words to change the context of the conversation.  In other words, one is about how groupies act, and the other is how he acted.    All with that simple change.

All you have to do is listen to the entire recording to hear the context of the conversation to understand this was just a casual conversation about how women act around him.

2.  Faking News Reports using Green Screens.

CNN is admittedly the one news organization who gets caught on this.   The oldest I found was back at least 20 years ago where a reporter faked the news report and the footage is very clear on this.

Here is the oldest I found….

There are other examples, one that comes to mind is the Boston bombing, where they tried to fake the locations of an interview.

There is a multitude of green screen news reports that reduce the legitimacy of the news story and erodes the public trust from CNN.    Here is a video which highlights the most blatant ones.

What to look for?   The pixelation of the person on the green-screen.   The disappearance of body parts, or other objects being held by the reporter.

3.   Pushing an agenda.

All networks are notorious for this.   Fox seems to be the ONLY one who leans to the right.  The others are all part of the left.   This was obvious during the election coverage when we heard basically almost all good things from the left wing media outlets and all bad things about Trump.   This was done using the above methods.  Omitting certain facts, taking sentences Trump said out of context etc.

4.  Gate-keeping.

This is pretty bad because this is ultimately lying.    And this is why CNN now is being called fake news.     Gate-keeping is when they tell you only the facts or information THEY want you to hear.    For example, they will hold those live debates with a panel of people.  Usually 3 who follow their agenda and 1 who doesn’t.    Then when the person who is against their agenda speaks and starts speaking about facts that are provable, the other three with try shouting over the person, including the host, and if that doesn’t work they cut the feed in some way.  Most of the time citing they “lost the feed”.     Don Lemon, doesn’t even try anymore.   If he encounters someone he interviews who brings out verifiable facts, he just shuts down the interview.

5. Rinse and Repeat.

Do you notice CNN is still harboring the “Russian Hack” story over and over?    That is because a lie repeated can sometimes be believed if repeated long enough by enough people.   This is what they are trying to do with this whole Russian Hack story.  They claim to have proof but yet the FBI and CIA both have stated that while there was a hack by the Russian’s there was no evidence to show that it had influenced the election in any way.   And yet, over and over again they still talk about it and how they magically have proof but never present it.      They expect us the audience to eventually believe it because if it is reported enough then it must be true!

Now as a side note, most people think “fake news” are things like the National Enquirer etc, “Aliens ate my baby!” sort of stories.  Or the Onion etc.  And yes, they are correct.  Those are fake news stories.  Meant to be comedic in nature.       However, when Trump or commentators, or pundits call a news organization fake news, it is due to the above ways they have manipulated their audiences.      It is the reason why many news anchors of the past have left their media outlets and started their own news outlets online.

So please, the easiest way to see if a news outlet is lying is go to the source of what they are reporting.    Trump it’s pretty easy.   He posts on Facebook what he says and usually includes videos if he is doing a press conference or a news interview.    So you can hear directly what he had said in it’s proper context.

Trump Won… Protestors spread the love beats hate… with violence.

We have witnessed history folks.  America’s 45th President got sworn in and many reacted well, like children.     While trying to brandish signs with slogans like “not my president” and my personal favorite, “Love Trumps Hate”, the protesters got ugly and did something that no one who understands democracy or free speech should do.    Destroy things and attack people.

Peaceful protesting is a protected right.   You are allowed in law to protest all you want.   The minute you destroy or attack someone, then it is no longer a peaceful protest but a violent mob rioting.

We saw this on the news here in Canada and sadly we also had women proudly announce here that they were marching in Washington to protest and even proclaim “not my president”.    Yes, there was even a news article opinion piece, where the writer stated this. Not realizing how idiotic she sounded by saying that.

The message of “Love Beats Hate” is lost the moment you smash a window, start a fire, or attack another human being.     You are not loving people spreading a message.    You become the thing you most revile.   Hateful, mean, violent human beings.

Thankfully, the police in Washington did the right thing and now those protesters are facing 10 years in prison and a pretty hefty fine.   Let this be a lesson to everyone.   Destroying private property, and attacking people in the name of “Love” is not very lovable and the violence breeds violence.   You get what you deserve.

Why Trump should Win the American Election.

trump-rally-in-vegas-getty-640x480

This presidential race has, to be blunt, a cluster bomb of attacks, lies and outright nonsense rhetoric that has astounded many and made people curse at their screens, newspapers and media agencies they follow.

To be fair, it came from both sides, but in the defense of trump, most of his rhetoric or so called attacks, weren’t attacks on Clinton, but retaliation in defense of attacks that Clinton has made against trump.

Now, that being said, Trump is clearly the better candidate.    Clinton supporters are, so far, from what I have seen, outright stupid.    Many support her because Clinton has a vagina.  Yes, you read that correctly.    Many are voting simply to get a woman in the office, instead of voting based on qualifications like, integrity, honesty, having solid reasoning to fix the problems and the intelligence to be able to negotiate deals with other world leaders.

So here are my list of reasons.

1.  Trump supports women’s rights.      He wants to ensure not only women are treated as equals in society, but stop those who would treat women as less than equals to men.

2.  Trump supports equality for other races.    He wants all Americans to be treated equal in society.   No special treatments based on race, gender or sexuality.

3. Trump wants to bring jobs back to the United States.    He wants people working and understands that without the majority of people working the economy suffers.   He wants to make good deals for the united states and to stop giving away resources and money to countries who do not honor their treaties, or have gross human rights violations.  And with half the country on food stamps and considered poor, this has drawn many to support him.

4.  Trump wants to fix the immigration problems, before the united states have the issues that other countries have.    By trying to stop illegal immigration and the crime that comes with it.   While even I scratch my head at the wall idea, I do admit there are other countries who are implementing this idea and it works.  So, I am adult enough to admit, that maybe it might have merit.   Combine that with reform on the immigration laws and rules, and you might get a working system that is better than the open door immigration policies that many countries have now.   Which are in effect a disaster.

5.  Fighting Terrorism, mainly Islamic Terrorism.      While other groups are out there committing terrorist acts, none are more prolific than Islam.  And his idea to stop all immigration until they can figure out ways to filter the potential terrorists from getting in the country is a sound one.

6.  Trump is for free speech.   He supports everyone’s right to speak without retaliation from government.     The idea of “hate speech” is fundamentally flawed due to the fact, it is arbitrary.   You may find one thing okay to say, but the person next to you may not.     Limiting speech is an attack on free speech.

7.  Trump supports veterans and the military.    He has personally donated millions to veterans and wants american military not to be treated as disposable.

All the negative press that Trump has gotten, has so far come from media that support Hilary.  media outlets stopped being neutral decades ago.    There is no such thing as neutral media source.    So when you hear the negative about trump you can trace it back to the Clinton Camp.    I always look at both sides and come to my own conclusions.    Yes Trump is definitely not perfect.   He is a tad eccentric and when defending himself he doesn’t filter his speech.     Many liberals don’t like that, and as such they have attacked Trump and Trump’s supporters with vigor, nasty lies and even violence.

Time to make America great again.

 

Open Letter to the Leaders of Canada

To Justin Trudeau, his Cabinet, and the current sitting members of Parliament,

I am going to step away from the main virtue that Canadian people are known for, and that is being nice.    I’m angry.   I am angry at you.  All of you.  You failed.   You failed in your duty.    The main one to which all people believe in, when it comes to a democratic nation.

The duty of protecting it’s people.     You failed.    You failed in helping our Canadian citizens John Ridsdel and Robert Hall.

Abu Sayyaf demand Canadian government pay ransom for hostage Robert Hall in new video

While our Prime Minister was busy with PR stunts and photo opportunities, these men, our own citizens had their lives cut short by people who have no respect for freedom, democracies, religions or life.   They pleaded from their government to intervene in some way.   You stood by and did nothing.   They asked you in the very real terror to do your duty to protect them, and you were silent.

“To the Canadian government, I’m told to tell you to meet the demand,” Hall said in the video. “I don’t know what you’re doing but, you’re not doing anything for us. John is being sacrificed, his family has been decimated, and I’m not sure why or what you’re waiting for.”

Then afterwards,  Justin you went on camera and gave a speech, which amounted to nothing.   It meant nothing.   You did nothing to prevent this tragedy, nothing to protect our citizens, our brothers.    You had the power, the authority but you stood by and did nothing.

You took a policy of standing by and doing nothing after decades of terrorism and threats to free people of the world.   Instead you sit back and kill the people you have  a duty to protect and wring your hands and give your condolences to the families of the dead who have to live with the loss and the knowledge of the horrible ways these victims died.

It’s time you, and I mean a all of you stand up and do your duty to the people of canada and do something to stop these terrorists from doing this again to any Canadian.   It’s time you did your duty.    If you cannot, or will not, protect our people when these types of things happen then all of you need to step down from your positions and let real men and women, who have the courage to stand up against terrorists who kidnap and kill our people.

Instead of spending your time in front of the press, flashing love signs and promoting feminism and spending billions each month, do your job.

The policy of not paying ransoms has failed.   It can be proven with the evidence of the bodies of these men, and every single man, woman and child this has happened to over the past 20 years.

If a police officer stands by, and does nothing and remains silent, while he watches a citizen be killed by another he can be considered an accessory to the crime of murder.    You, the cabinet and the members of parliament are guilty of being accessories to acts terrorism.

Do something or step down from your positions you cowards.

Facing reality is a trigger for some people….

Today I got into an argument with some SJW’s on Facebook who actually were praising someone, and condemning anyone who spoke negatively about the man.   The whole thing started with news reports of a train hitting a tow truck that was parked on railroad tracks in between signal lights and those arms that come down when a train is approaching. In other words, right on the tracks.

(Original story here:  http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2015/10/30/1-dead-after-go-train-hits-tow-truck.html )

The tow truck driver had parked his car at a scene of a collision and was directing traffic to “be safe”. Unaware he had parked his tow truck right on the tracks.    Then ten minutes after arriving, a train was coming.

Now common sense screams that you move away from the parked truck.    No, this guy ran to his truck and got in, in an futile notion to move it off the tracks.  However, the truck was blocked by those arms that drop to stop traffic when trains approach, and so the guy didn’t even have time to get out and the train collided with the truck, killing the driver.

Thankfully, the passengers on that train were unharmed.   Shaken for sure, but unharmed.

Now, back to social justice warriors.    The made a derogatory comment about some firefighter who on his own personal social media account has stated the tow truck driver was an idiot for parking on the tracks.    The SJWs were making statements that  the firefighter should be fired etc.   (Cause, you know, we can’t have free speech).

I decided to jump in and give my two cents, (because I exercise my free speech as you all know).   My first volley in the comments was the firefighter is right.   This was a completely avoidable situation and the driver was an idiot for not using common sense.   Every single person knows not to park on railroad tracks.    Every year people die from being on railroad tracks, but of course this was the wrong answer.    The person who posted stated that a person who works as a firefighter should not be making statements that are negative and was ignorant for doing so.

First and foremost anyone who uses the word ignorant in that context is not understanding what that word means.  It actually means you are not educated on subject, typically the subject your speaking on  etc.    And I would say, that the firefighter is more qualified to say it than some housewife/social justice warrior, since fire fighter are high trained and are typically first respond-er to crisis situations.    And I said so.

This was when things got interesting and typical.  Her friends decided to jump in and defend the housewife’s comment and again called for the firefighter to be fired.  Simply because he said something they perceived as negative.   However the friend added by calling me a derogatory name and telling me Karma will bite me on the ass for saying something negative against the dead.

Reality of the situation of the truck driver is this.   He chose to park on the tracks, in between the arms, instead of somewhere safe.  By doing this he put every single person on that trains life at risk, and possibly cause derailment, death and destruction.

Instead we got lucky and only one person died from this event that was avoidable.

The idea that we can’t talk realistically about situations is wrong.   I will never stop talking the truth, and I refuse to wear rose colored glasses.   The housewife in question is also a mom of 5 kids.  So of course she had to bring that up and stated that she didn’t want her kids to have to live in a world with negativity, and then in typical fashion she unfriended me.   Now in their defense, I had enough of this nonsense because the idiocy of their commentary was astounding because it put zero blame on the tow truck driver, and when the name calling started I finished it by calling the one friend of the housewife what she was in reality, a Cunty Bitch.

in their world, it’s full of precious snowflakes, and unicorns and nothing ever goes wrong and when someone points out reality, they get mad, stomp their little feet, and cry.

Spoiled children.
