Saturday News Roundup: NBC News is a Dumpster Fire, and Don’t Think Seattle Can’t Happen to You

This is the current state of NBC News. – Dr. Joseph Fair is a virologist who also happens to be a “medical contributor” to NBC News. Across the months of May and June, Dr. Fair made numerous appearances on the “Today” show and other NBC/MSNBC platforms to give viewers all the gory details about his long and difficult struggle with what he claimed was a case of the Wuhan Virus, COVID-19.

The only problem is, he never had COVID-19.

From a report at the Daily Caller:

Fair suggested during an interview on the “Today” show May 14 that he may have gotten the virus through his eye during a flight. He conducted the interview while in a New Orleans hospital, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

NBC News originally told viewers about the negative tests, but abandoned that part of the narrative as the story continued, according to Steve Krakauer’s “Fourth Watch” newsletter. During a June 14 interview with Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press,” no one noted that Fair had already tested negative at least five times, according to Krakauer.

“In the end, NBC’s viewers were left with two very alarming – and false – impressions,” Krakauer wrote. “First, that an expert virologist can take every precaution but can still catch COVID-19 through his eyes. False. Second, that tests can be so untrustworthy that you can have multiple negative tests and still have coronavirus.”

NBC News has not yet updated its May 14 article claiming the virologist got “coronavirus despite being in good health and taking precautions.”

Oh.

NBC News is a raging dumpster fire, but that just makes it equal to every other broadcast or cable news station outside of OANN and NewsMax.

Everything you see on any cable or broadcast network “news” program is most likely a lie. Every. Damn. Thing.

Something will be happening with Venezuela, and the U.S. will be heavily involved. – At least, that’s what President Donald Trump told an interviewer with the Spanish language channel Telemundo yesterday.

From a report at Breitbart:

Host Jose Diaz-Balart asked, “For you, Venezuela, is it Guaido, is it Maduro, is it U.S. intervention?”

Trump responded, “It’s freedom for their people. It’s freedom. Venezuela was a rich country 15 years ago, and it’s been destroyed by two people, but a system, a horrible system. … And something will happen with Venezuela. That’s all I can tell you. Something will be happening with Venezuela.”

Diaz-Balart then asked, “Through the United States?”

Trump responded, “We’ll be very much involved.”

[End]

Just a reminder that Barack Obama considered Hugo Chavez, the first brutish socialist thug ruler of Venezuela, to be a role model, and that the socialist model currently being forced on helpless Joe Biden by Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the model that turned that formerly 1st-world, wealthy nation into a 3rd world hell hole in the span of a decade.

It really doesn’t seem like something the U.S. should aspire to emulate, does it? Pay attention.

Be glad you don’t live in Seattle. – I almost started this segment by saying “pity the poor people in Seattle,” but hey, they’re the morons who elected the current Mayor, the evil Jenny Durkan, and a city council filled with radical thugs, so pity really isn’t justified, is it?

Ok, there are innocent, sensible people in that messed up town who didn’t support any of those thugs: You should expect to see a mass exodus of such people from that community in the very near future, as they flee a city that elected Democrats are making sure descends into outright chaos.

On Friday, a majority of the Seattle City Council agreed to support a proposition that would cut the police department’s budget by 50%. The plan would be to reallocate those funds to “other community needs.” It is not clear what those “other needs” are exactly, but presumably they would include lots of Unicorns and rainbows. Because these are Democrats we’re talking about here, after all.

Think about the insanity of this for a moment: Seattle is already such a lawless jurisdiction that members of the city council itself helped a group of Antifa/BLM Marxist thugs illegally seize a 6 square-block section of the Capitol Hill area – including a police precinct building – there for a solid month as the Mayor refused to allow the police department to intervene. It was only when those same Marxist thugs – again helped along by at least one member of the city council – broke into a gated neighborhood and staged an illegal protest action at the Mayor’s home that the despicable Ms. Durkan finally allowed the police to break up the illegal insurgency.

It is tempting for those of us living in distant parts of this giant country to look at the mass insanity taking place in Seattle, Minneapolis, New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, Atlanta and Portland and laugh with condescension about it all, but that is a dangerous reaction for us to take. This kind of stuff can hit very close to home very quickly.

In my home state of Texas, the Democrat morons running the city of Austin have now turned its downtown area into a homeless camp that is beginning to rival those seen in Los Angeles and San Francisco. In Houston, the Democrat Mayor there, Sylvester Turner, acted this week to cancel the Republican Party’s state convention that was to be held there, using COVID-19 as his excuse, a bare week before it was to happen. The GOP has sued, but has little hope of prevailing in time for the event to come off.

Don’t kid yourselves that the kind of nonsense you see happening in far-off states can’t happen in your state: It can, and it will very soon unless each and every one of you gets your butts up off your sofas and goes out and votes in November.

That is all.

Today’s news moves at a faster pace than ever. Whatfinger is my go-to source for keeping up with all the latest events in real time.
