60 Minutes’ Smear Job on Ron DeSantis Collapses

60 Minutes provided a prime example of the utter corruption of our nation’s media establishment on Sunday with a smear of Ron DeSantis. – In the story, 60 Minutes fake reporter Sharon Alfonsi accused the Florida Governor of engaging in a “pay for play” scheme in which the Publix chain of pharmacy/grocery stores was awarded a contract to become a distributor of the various COVID vaccines in exchange for a $100,000 contribution to the DeSantis gubernatorial campaign in 2018. 60 Minutes made no effort to explain how, in 2018 when the contribution was made, anyone at Publix could have known about a pandemic that would take place in 2020, but hey, this is fake news we’re talking about here – logic and facts play no role. Only the fake narrative matters.

Alfonsi’s piece included film taken during a DeSantis presser in which she accused the Governor and he gave a full and complete answer. Naturally, Alfonsi and her editors at 60 Minutes carefully edited the clip in order to eliminate all of the actual facts of what happened. Take a look:

Publix, naturally outraged, responded to the 60 Minutes smear job with the following statement:

“The irresponsible suggestion that there was a connection between campaign contributions made to Governor DeSantis and our willingness to join other pharmacies in support of the state’s vaccine distribution efforts is absolutely false and offensive,” the supermarket company said on Monday in a statement. “We are proud of our pharmacy associates for administering more than 1.5 million doses of vaccine to date and for joining other retailers in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia to do our part to help our communities emerge from the pandemic.”

Meanwhile, the 60 Minutes smear has created such public outrage in Florida that even Democrats are coming to the Governor’s defense. First, Jared Moskowitz, a Democrat who is serving his 3rd term as Director of the Florida Division of Emergency Management, issued this tweet excoriating CBS for its intentionally false smear job:

Next, Dave Kerner, the Democrat Mayor of Palm Beach County, issued this statement blasting the corrupt 60 Minutes/CBS crew for its false reporting: “The reporting was not just based on bad information — it was intentionally false. I know this because I offered to provide my insight into Palm Beach County’s vaccination efforts and 60 minutes declined,” Kerner declared. “They know that the Governor came to Palm Beach County and met with me and the County Administrator and we asked to expand the state’s partnership with Publix to Palm Beach County. We also discussed our own local plans to expand mass vaccinations centers throughout the county, which the Governor has been incredibly supportive. We asked and he delivered. They had that information, and they left it out because it kneecaps their narrative.”

Oof.

Note that Kerner had volunteered to be interviewed by Alfonsi, but she refused to talk to him, knowing he would destroy the divisive narrative she was trying to create:

You want to know why I have been writing for 25 years that the utterly corrupt, Soviet-style fake news media establishment is the single greatest threat to our country’s survival? This smear job, designed to divide the people of Florida, is a textbook case.

It is crucial to understand that CBS News and Alfonsi created this false narrative out of whole cloth in an effort to benefit their masters in the Democrat Party. There is simply no question that DeSantis has run circles around all other governors of big population states in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, repeatedly going against the official guidance coming from Anthony Fauci and the CDC ghouls while doing so. Florida’s numbers of cases and death rate from the viral gift from China have vastly out-performed the records of blue states that have slavishly conformed to the federal edicts, and that makes the Democrats quite uncomfortable, especially given Andrew Cuomo’s ongoing scandals and the recall efforts being mounted against Gavin Newsom and Christine Whitmer.

Even worse for the Democrats, DeSantis’s performance under pressure during the COVID crisis has made him the obvious successor to Donald Trump as the GOP’s 2024 presidential nominee. This reality makes him the prime Republican target for media smears like this one on behalf of the Democrats.

Because of this competing dynamic between red states and blue states, the corrupt propaganda media has spent the last year making up a series of false narratives about Florida’s performance in efforts to damage DeSantis, culminating in this despicable smear by 60 Minutes. They do this for one simple reason: The Democrat Party demands it. It’s the same reason why the media mounted a set of smears defaming Texas Governor Greg Abbott when he rescinded his idiotic, useless mask mandate in early March.

The philosophy of the Democrat Party has always, from its very founding, been to divide this country in order to rule it. That’s why it created the Ku Klux Klan following the Civil War, it’s why Lincoln was murdered, it’s why every “great” Democrat president in history has been a highly-divisive figure and it’s why it created BLM and Antifa to serve as its domestic terror apparatus.

The mission of corrupt, Soviet-style propaganda outlets like CBS News, CNN and MSNBC is to serve their Democrat Party masters by keeping us as divided as possible. That’s why they represent a clear and present existential threat to our country.

That is all.

Shocker: Mainstream News Media Suddenly Covers Portland Riots

Hey, look who’s suddenly reporting on the Portland riots! – After 8 months of pretending the riots simply did not exist, corrupt, leftwing media outlets like CBS News and The Hill are suddenly filing reports on the latest turn in the ongoing BLM/Antifa insurrection in Oregon’s largest city:

As you can see, the focus of the story is on the fact that the Portland Police are suddenly being allowed by Communist Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler to actually arrest a large number of the domestic terrorists, a stark contrast to the hands-off policy they had been forced to deploy while President Donald Trump was in office.

Here’s an excerpt from the CBS News report:

About 100 people were detained in Portland, Oregon, Friday night, according to police. Police say they surrounded protesters after some began to break windows.

“On Friday, March 12, 2021 at about 9:00p.m., a group began marching in the street, blocking vehicular traffic, from Jamison Park, 810 Northwest 11th Avenue. They were advised by loudspeaker that the street was open to vehicular traffic, but the crowd continued to march in the street,” police said in a press release Saturday.

“At about 9:15p.m., at Northwest 15th Avenue and Northwest Overton Street, some in the crowd began breaking windows… Officers moved in to address the criminal behavior. They created a perimeter around the group.”

The tactic appears to be an example of “kettling,” a police strategy of surrounding a crowd and containing people within a perimeter, The Oregonian/Oregonlive.com reported. The newspaper noted that police halted the march only minutes after it started.

Police said in a tweet Friday night that they were detaining everyone within the boundary for the “investigation of a crime.”

“You are not free to leave. You must stay where you are and comply with officers’ lawful orders,” the Portland Police Bureau said in a tweet.

Police attached photos of broken windows as well as weapons they say were left behind by protesters. “Officers discovered numerous items left behind by people inside the perimeter, including a crowbar, hammers, bear spray, slugging weapon with rocks, high impact slingshot, and knives,” reads the press release.

[End]

What is so interesting about these and several other mainstream media reports covering the same story this morning is they all seem to be original reporting, not just cut-and-past jobs based on some original report by the AP or the New York Times. Just as the police are breaking from their past behavior related to the insurrectionists, the media outlets are suddenly breaking from their refusal to report the news coming out of Portland, which for the last 8 solid months has been left up to independent journalists like the intrepid Andy Ngo.

So, what we have here is a narrative shift on every front, something that only happens when both the corrupt news media and the Democrat Party want it to happen. It is key to remember in all of this that BLM and Antifa are both nothing more than subsidiaries of the Democrat Party, which funds and sponsors them and their rioting, and exploits it for political purposes. BLM and Antifa make up the militarized wing of the Democrat party just as the corrupt news media serves as its propaganda arm.

They are all one big organism.

The question with this particular narrative shift is, why now? Why have corrupt fake news outlets who have ignored these nightly riots since last July suddenly obviously assigned beat reporters to go to Portland to cover them? Theoretically, it could be as simple as the editors in every one of these news rooms simultaneously deciding that the mass arrests of more than 100 Democrat party  surrogate terrorists is an actual news story.

More likely, however, it’s a realization that this is a story that requires spinning in exactly the right way, i.e., referring to the BLM/Antifa terrorists only as “protesters,” with neither “BLM” nor “Antifa” making an appearance anywhere in the stories. Why, these are just a bunch of misguided kids, unaffiliated with any organizing element at all, you silly citizens.

Yeah, that’s much more likely, isn’t it? And we very likely won’t see CBS News or The Hill publishing follow-up stories about how all of these 100 terrorists were let back out onto the streets without bail, or a later story about how corrupt local prosecutors refuse to bring charges against all but a tiny handful of them. See, those narratives have already been fully spun and established as some sort of “social justice” in the minds of brainwashed leftists all over the country.

Thus, what we most likely have here in this sudden flurry of corrupt news media stories out of Portland is your classic hit-and-run reporting by what the late, great Rush Limbaugh liked to call our “drive-by media.” Now that these cursory stories about the 100+ arrests have been dutifully filed and the preferred DNC narrative has been spun, you should expect outlets like CBS News and The Hill to return to their previous mode of radio silence on the matter.

Because this is what the corrupt news media does for the Democrat Party.

That is all.

The Global Economy is Rapidly Recovering and CBS News and the UN Are Upset

When the headline gives away the narrative. – There’s bias, and then there’s BIAS, and CBS puts the full all-caps deal into this piece, which was obviously handed to the fake journalist who wrote it by some activist at the Sierra Club or NRDC.

Check out the headline:

Here’s an excerpt from this piece of journalistic malpractice:

Paris — Global energy-related carbon dioxide emissions rose slightly in December compared with the same month of 2019, indicating the sharp drop seen due to the pandemic was short-lived. Figures released Tuesday by the International Energy Agency show emissions from the production and use of oil, gas and coal were 2% higher in December 2020 than a year earlier.

The Paris-based intergovernmental agency said a resurgence in economic activity coupled with a lack of clean energy policies mean many countries are now seeing higher emissions than before the coronavirus pandemic.

“The rebound in global carbon emissions toward the end of last year is a stark warning that not enough is being done to accelerate clean energy transitions worldwide,” said the agency’s executive director, Fatih Birol. “If governments don’t move quickly with the right energy policies, this could put at risk the world’s historic opportunity to make 2019 the definitive peak in global emissions.”

Scientists have previously calculated that CO2 emissions fell by 7% during the full year 2020 as people stayed at home because of the pandemic.

“Our numbers show we are returning to carbon-intensive business-as-usual,” said Birol. “These latest numbers are a sharp reminder of the immense challenge we face in rapidly transforming the global energy system.”

Carbon dioxide is the main greenhouse gas responsible for global warming.

[End]

Now, in a sane world – you know, the world we long ago left behind as the climate change pseudo-science evolved into a global religious cult – the real story here would be a joyful one, because what is really being reported in it is the fact that economies all over the world are roaring back from the insane response to COVID-19 that crushed millions of businesses, threw hundreds of millions out of work and tens of millions into abject poverty. Growing economies require a lot of energy and people moving around, and all that energy and people moving around and going back to work produces carbon emissions.

But when your entire life’s outlook revolves around the cultish religious exercise of considering plant food to be your cult’s version of Satan, then you produce “journalism” such as this. Seriously, what would CBS have had us do, artificially keep the economy in a global depression for the next 30-50 years until hopefully someone can finally figure out how to make nuclear fusion work so we avoid using oil and gas and coal like we did before last March?

Why, yes, that is exactly what the Global Church of Climate Change dogma would have us do, and the headline to this piece betrays that exact mindset.

Fatih Birol, the director of the International Energy Agency at the UN, is literally bemoaning the fact that people are in the process of regaining and even exceeding the level of relative prosperity they enjoyed before they were thrown out of jobs and had their businesses destroyed by the cardinals of the climate change cult. He is literally upset that millions of people will not go hungry and will again be able to put shoes on their children’s feet.

And it’s all a religious exercise that is based solely on computer models since real-world observations still do not support a single bit of dogma that serves as the basis for the cult’s obsessive existence.

You honestly could never make these people up if they did not already exist.

All you normal people out there should celebrate this CBS piece, because it means that, in spite of all of the unconstitutional edicts, in spite of all of Anthony Fauci’s repugnant propaganda, in spite of all of the incessant fright tactics thrown at you by the corrupt news media over the past year, people are going back to work.

That is all.

Trump Tweets Full 60 Minutes Video, CBS Whines

Trump just keeps on keeping his promises. – True to his promise made yesterday, President Donald Trump tweeted out the full, unedited version of his interview with old “60 Minutes” hack Lesley Stahl earlier today.

This is a very wise move by the President, given that he know “60 Minutes'” habit of heavily editing its interviews of not just Trump, but any Republican in order to portray them as negatively as possible. CBS also edits these interviews to cover up the sorry behavior of their own fake journalists, so Stahl is seen live and unedited in all her vicious, rude glory.

Here’s the President’s tweet:

No telling how long it will take for Twitter to censor it, so view it while you can.

CBS News hilariously reacted by posting a whiney complaint about the White House violating its agreement with the corrupt media outlet.

Note the network also promises to provide its “full, fair and contextual reporting” on the interview, code for “we’re going to hack this tape up so as  to make it unrecognizable like we always do to Republicans.”

You can be certain that CBS’s “context” and “reporting” will not make mention of the fact that Stahl imperiously insisted on parading around the White House while refusing to wear a mask, a requirement now of all visitors. Nor will it provide any of the “context” on the Trump administration’s enormous successes in reducing medical premiums and prescription medication costs for the first time in half a century provided to Stahl by Kayleigh McEnany. Because that is not what Stahl and “60 Minutes” view their role to be.

CBS News is a Nazi-style propaganda outlet, no different than CNN and the New York Times, and this interview was designed to damage the President. Simple.

CBS and Stahl are angry for the simple fact that the President decided to show Stahl for who and what she really is – a hack Democrat activist pretending to be a journalist.

Tough.
