Saturday News Roundup: Adios Tik-Tok, Bye-Bye Bolton Book Advance, and America’s Garbage News Media

The American news media is a steaming pile of rancid garbage. – Portland Riots continued last night and this morning, despite the media lies to the contrary. Here is how the corrupt, fake journalists at the  Associated Press are lying about the Portland riots this morning:

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Hundreds peacefully protested in downtown Portland Friday, two days after the announcement that the presence of U.S. agents there would be reduced — a deal that Oregon officials hope will continue to ease tensions as the city tries to move on from months of chaotic nightly protests.

The start of Friday night’s protest mimicked that of Thursday, which was the first time in weeks that demonstrations ended without any major confrontations, violence or arrests. The change in tone outside a federal courthouse that’s become ground zero in clashes between demonstrators and federal agents came after the U.S. government began drawing down its forces in the liberal city under a deal between Democratic Gov. Kate Brown and the Trump administration.

And here is the truth of what is taking place on the ground, courtesy of real journalist Andy Ngo:

On Thursday, the Trump Administration reached an agreement with communist/Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler and communist/Governor Kate Brown to let state and local police personnel attempt to keep the rioters trying to destroy the federal courthouse in Portland at bay. So far, the experimental deal with communist thugs is going exactly as you would expect it to.

DHS Secretary Chad Wolf said on Friday that federal personnel would remain in Portland to monitor the situation, and would be prepared to step back into the fray if the Oregon law enforcement officers fail to do their jobs. Don’t expect the feds to be leaving anytime soon.

Dear John Bolton: About that $2 million book advance… – The Department of Justice moved late on Friday to convince a federal judge to order John Bolton to turn over all proceeds from his new book to the federal government.

From a piece at Brietbart:

The U.S. government has asked a federal judge in Washington to seize the $2 million book advance and any royalties paid to former Trump National Security Adviser John Bolton, who published a tell-all memoir about the Trump administration allegedly without clearing it first with the government for classified material.

The government said in a court filing Thursday that Bolton violated nondisclosure agreements when he released his memoir, The Room Where It Happened, without finishing a National Security Council (NSC) review process to make sure the book did not contain any classified material that could put U.S. national security at risk, according to Bloomberg.

The federal government initially sought to prevent the book’s publish in June, but failed since advance copies had already been sent out to numerous media outlets. However, U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth wrote in his ruling about Bolton, “He has exposed his country to harm and himself to civil (and potentially criminal) liability.”

What is that saying about ill-gotten gains? Bolton’s about to find out.

Dear CNN: Normal people call these individuals “women.” – This is an actual tweet issued by CNN on Thursday.  I swear I do not make this stuff up:

So now in our Orwellian world, our corrupt news media is moving to erase women completely in its efforts to be politically correct. All on the pretense that people who do not possess a cervix are capable of being hit with cervical cancer.

A caution to suburban housewives contemplating a vote for Joe Biden this November: A vote for Biden is a vote for the societal erasure of you and your daughters. Think carefully before taking that fatal step.

Man, all the IPhone addicted kids are gonna be whining about this one. – Lots of you adults, too, apparently. President Trump made it clear last night that he will sign an executive order to effectively ban the Tik-Tok app – whatever in the hell that is – in the United States. The reason is that the company that owns the app is suspected of sharing the data it gathers with the communist Chinese government and its military.

Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Dianne Feinstein certainly don’t have a problem with the company’s activities, but actual Americans do, so the President plans to take action.

From a report at Fox News:

President Trump told reporters late Friday that he plans to ban the social media platform TikTok from the United States as soon as Saturday.

A ban would further pressure TikTok’s Chinese parent company ByteDance to sell the app’s U.S. operations amid national security concerns about users’ personal data. Microsoft is a leading contender to buy.

“As far as TikTok is concerned, we’re banning them from the United States,” Trump told reporters on Air Force One.“I have that authority…It’s going to be signed tomorrow.” He said he could use an executive order or emergency economic powers.

The administration is also prepared to order the company to divest its ownership in TikTok.

Investment bankers told FOX Business if the Microsoft deal falls through, ByteDance will certainly shop TikTok wider including to private equity firms. A person with direct knowledge told FOX Business there are two to three serious buyers that have expressed interest.

Any deal will be closely scrutinized by the Trump administration. “If Microsoft or any U.S. company buys TikTok this will be carefully monitored to make sure there is absolutely no Chinese involvement in the new company,” said one Wall Street executive with knowledge of the matter.

Trump as recently as March used executive powers to force a Chinese company to sell its stake in a U.S. hotel software company, the Washington Post reported.
