No, Don Lemon, the Facts Show Jihadists Are the Biggest Terror Threat

Written by Robert Spencer

CNN’s Don Lemon has found himself in the middle of a controversy for claiming, in the wake of a shooting in a Kentucky supermarket, that “the biggest terror threat in this country is white men.” When criticized, Lemon doubled down, claiming that “the evidence is overwhelming.”

It isn’t.

Ironically, Lemon began his venture into counterterror analysis by saying: “I keep trying to point out to people not to demonize any one group or any one ethnicity.” He then did just that.

CNN’s Don Lemon Doubles Down on False Claim That White Men are “Biggest Terror Threat in This Country”

Written by Robert Spencer

“The evidence is overwhelming,” insists Lemon. But is it, really? There are several reasons why it is a false claim that “right-wing extremists” are a bigger threat to Americans than Islamic jihad terrorists. “Lemon pointed to a recent Government Accountability Office report that shows that since the 9/11 attacks in 2001, far-right violent extremists have killed 106 people in 62 attacks in the United States, while radical Islamist violent extremists have killed 119 people in 23 attacks.”

But there are several problems with this study:

1.) It only counts fatalities, not people injured.… Continue Reading

CNN Takes the Bait on Diversity

Written by Brian C. Joondeph

CNN, famous for fake news, focuses their 24-7 news cycle on anything damaging to President Trump, even if they have to provoke it or make it up. Their low television ratings reflect the lack of public interest in their incessant Trump bashing. In late June, “In primetime, CNN lost to HGTV, Investigation Discovery, the History Channel, the Discovery Channel, and the Food Network.”

When CNN is not Trump bashing, they are virtue signaling to fellow leftists.

The Theory of Political Relative Relativity

Written by Michelle Malkin

It’s quite simple: Some political relatives are more equal than others.

Agenda-driven journalists love to exploit familial dysfunction when a prominent politician is conservative and his or her kinfolk espouse liberal views. When a vengeful offspring, sibling, cousin or distant relation wants to wreak havoc, instant fame and adoration are just a tweet or call away. The media schadenfreude over such bloody bloodline battles is thicker than California wildfire smoke.

By contrast, relatives who openly challenge powerful Democrats are dismissed as gadflies and publicity hounds.… Continue Reading

Good Riddance to Justice Anthony Kennedy

Written by Taylor Lewis

The U.S. Supreme Court’s longest serving justice announced his retirement shortly after casting the deciding vote on a string of decisions that were seen as wins for the conservative side of the bench. Kennedy’s stepping down didn’t come as a surprise. There have long been rumors in Washington that he was considering hanging up his robe. With a Republican-controlled Congress and White House, the timing couldn’t be better, so as to ensure his seat would be filled with someone from the right side of the ideological spectrum.… Continue Reading

WATCH: CNN Worries Tax Bill Will Help GOP, Hints At Conspiracy Theory

Written by Ryan Saavedra

Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) appeared on CNN’s “New Day” on Tuesday to talk about whether Democrats would work with President Donald Trump and his agenda in 2018 and was greeted by a conspiracy-minded CNN host.

Toward the end of the segment, CNN host Alisyn Camerota brought up the recent GOP tax bill that Trump signed into law and how numerous businesses were giving their employees bonuses and raising the minimum wages at their companies because of it.… Continue Reading

CNN’s Hate Group List Smears Some Great Organizations

Written by Tom Gilson

CNN has just published a map and listing of “all the active hate groups where you live.” I’ve got serious problems with lists like this, but apparently CNN doesn’t. It seems to me that if they believe in “hate group” lists, they really ought to include themselves on it.

A list like this one, published days after Charlottesville, is, in theory, meant to warn Americans against groups that might carry similar violence into other cities.… Continue Reading

Double Standards in the War between White House and Media

Written by Michael Medved

For all his vast power, the President of the United States—any president—is always at a structural disadvantage in a “war” with the media. The First Amendment protects press rights to criticize the government, and everyone expects such criticism. But if government—or the president, as head of government—strikes back by assailing media, there’s an uneasy hint of bullying or oppression.

President Donald Trump isn’t exceptional in generating media hostility, but Barack Obama was exceptional in avoiding such scrutiny for eight years.… Continue Reading

Exposé of Fake News Machine CNN

Written by Laurie Higgins

A bombshell undercover video narrated by James O’Keefe and released on Tuesday, June 27, 2017, shows CNN supervising producer John Bonifield admitting that the Trump collusion tale is “mostly bullsh*t” that CNN pushes because it’s a ratings blockbuster.

Bonifield admits what is obvious to many Americans about the mainstream media’s evidence for the endless Russia story: “We don’t have any big giant proof….I just feel like they don’t really have it, but they want to keep digging.”

When asked why CNN is “constantly like, Russia this, Russia that,” Bonifield answers, “Because it’s ratings….Our ratings are incredible now.”

Fifteen-year journalist and producer veteran Bonifield agrees with Trump that the dominant media’s obsessive pursuit of this story for which there is no evidence is a “witch hunt”: “I think the president is probably right to say…’you are witch-hunting me.’” Bonifield admits it’s a witch hunt because there is “no smoking gun” and “no real proof.”

Bonifield claims the laser focus on the nonexistent Trump-Russia collusion tale is being orchestrated from the top with CNN CEO Jeff Zucker ordering journalists to “get back to Russia,” after taking a day to cover Trump’s decision to pull out the of the climate accords.… Continue Reading

CNN’s Fake Muslim Anti-Terror Protest

“You see more press than anyone else.”

Written by Amber Athey

[Last week] CNN was accused of staging a Muslim-led anti-terror protest after the London terror attacks. Now, more footage has dropped that shows what happened on the scene before the CNN shot was taken.

A Youtube video taken by Claire Jordan shows her milling around the scene and “protest” prior to CNN lining up the protesters for their on-air shot.

There is a group of people in the area, both Muslim and non-Muslim, and some of them can be seen handing out bouquets of flowers and posters.… Continue Reading
