MEDIA BIAS … CBS 60 Minutes Does Not Air Questions to Hillary Clinton On Leaked DNC Emails … Hillary Claims No Knowledge of Emails (VIDEO)
WHAT A LYING SACK OF GARBAGE … LYING HILLARY CLAIMS SHE HAD NO KNOWLEDGE OF THE DNC EMAILS …
CBS and 60 Minutes have carried the water once again for the Democrat party. What else would you expect from the Democrat-media complex? During an interview with Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine, 60 Minutes decided to not air on TV, only on the internet, the most pressing questions that everyone wanted to hear of the DNC email scandal. That was pathetic enough, then came Hillary’s responses that she had no knowledge of the emails. SURE SHE DIDN’T. Just like she had no knowledge of the top secret emails she had on her private email server. That was a lie and so is this.
Ha, Hillary claims no knowledge of DNC emails, where have we heard that one before? If Hillary Clinton’s lips are moving, you can be assured she is lying.
Hillary claims she had no knowledge of the DNC emails. If you believe that then I have a private email server to sell you.
In the interview that was taped over the weekend and aired in pieces Sunday and today he also asked her about the DNC email scandal.
Clinton said she had no knowledge of a Democratic Party official’s plot to to undermine Bernie Sanders’ support in the primary by planting a story about the senator being an atheist.
Chief Financial Officer Brad Marshall suggested in a leaked email midway through the primary schedule that the DNC get a reporter to question his religious beliefs.
‘Does he believe in a god? He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he’s an atheist,’ Marshall wrote. ‘This could make several points difference with my peeps.’
Clinton said in the interview with CBS, ‘I didn’t know anything about it. And I haven’t read any of those.’
‘But I am adamantly opposed to anyone bringing religion into our political process. I mean the constitution says, “no religious tests.” So that is just absolutely wrong and unacceptable.’
HEY, LETS SEE HOW HARMONIOUS THE DEMOCRAT CONVENTION IS GOING TO BE NEXT WEEK AFTER EMAILS LEAKED BY WIKILEAKS …
Just ahead of next week’s Democrat National Convention in Philadelphia, ,PA comes 19,252 emails from the DNC leaked by Wikileaks. It is what we thought it was and much, much more. The DNC conspired with the MSM to sabotage Bernie Sanders during the Democrat primary so to aid Hillary Clinton. As reported at The Hill, Sanders supporters are none too happy.
Is it possible to have Email-gate II?
The leaked email prompted swift outcry online Friday afternoon. One apparent Sanders supporter tweeted: “HRC folks called Sanders “McCarthyite” & ranted about purity while DNC plotted to smear him as godless commie Jew.”
How dare the liberal MSM not follow in lockstep with the DNC … Wasserman Schultz Was FURIOUS With Mika Brzezinski Over Criticism.
As Red State opines, man some of these are great.
On Friday, website Wikileaks posted over 19,000 emails that were taken from the Democratic National Committee that show story manipulation and collusion with the MSM, internal attempts to sabotage Bernie Sanders during the primary, and a whole lot more.
More from RedState via ABC News:
BERNIE SANDERS, ATHEIST JEW
We all knew the party was working to help Hillary and burn Bernie, but now we have positive confirmation of some of the ways they did it. And one of those ways was to attack him on religious grounds. For serious.
Several of the emails released indicate that the officials, including Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, grew increasingly agitated with Clinton’s rival, Bernie Sanders, and his campaign as the primary season advanced, in one instance even floating bringing up Sanders’ religion to try and minimize his support.
“It might may [sic] no difference, but for KY and WA can we get someone to ask his belief,” Brad Marshall, CFO of DNC, wrote in an email on May 5, 2016. “Does he believe in God. He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I read he is an atheist. This could make several points difference with my peeps. My southern baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist.”
Amy Dacey, CEO of the DNC, subsequently responded “AMEN,” according to the emails.
Rudy Giuliani Says We Have To Understand More About the Races; However, “Black Lives Matters” is Racist & Anti-American
RUDY GIULIANI SPEAKS THE TRUTH AND TAKES HEAT FOR IT …
Rudy Giuliani went on CBS’s ‘Face the Nation’ and did what Rudy does, spoke the truth that many, including the media, can not handle. As Jack Nicholson famously said in the movie, ‘A Few Good Men’ … “you can’t handle the truth.” Rudy stated, “Whites and Blacks both have to look at things differently.” He then went on to say, to the horror of an uninformed and agenda driven media, “Black lives matter” is racist.
Check out the VIDEO below tongue lashing and education that Mayor Rudy gave to the liberal MSM. Rudy stated that “Black Lives Matters” is racist and then backed up his assertion with facts. Because if they cared about black lives, they would care about the 93% of deaths where blacks are killed by black crime.
So what kind of a group claims they are for saving the lives of blacks and only focuses on something that happens 1 to 2 percent of the time and avoids 93-95%? Better yet, what kind of a media does the same and pushes a false narrative against authority and police officers?
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Guiliani says the Black Lives Matter movement puts a target on the back of police officers. Guiliani adds, “When you say black lives matter, that’s inherently racist.”
MEDIA BIAS: WHEN YOU CAN’T TRUST THE WORDS, LOOK AT THE NUMBERS …
When you can’t trust the words of a dishonest agenda driven media, pandering Democrats and an ideologue like President Barack Obama, look to the new media to do the number crunching and analysis to report of whether Blacks are being targeted by the police as the MSM would like you to believe. The folks at Powerline ask the question … . Are Blacks disproportionately involved in Police shootings? To listen to the liberal MSM one would say of course, they are reporting it all the time, it must be true. And if you were a lazy, apathetic non-caring info bot, you would be wrong. Check out the statistics and analysis below from Powerline and learn something, rather than just believe what the MSM wants you to hear.
Its not just as simple as 258 blacks represent 26% of the total number of med shot and killed by law enforcement, which is about double the percentage of blacks in the American population and thus the police must be targeting blacks. Sorry WAPO, you might want to dig a little deeper into the numbers and use other qualifiers like blacks have an unusually high rate of contact with the police, both as victims and as perpetrators.
But when the MSM reports white cops killing all blacks as an unarmed and bad shooting, even when the facts state otherwise and forget the fact that believe it or not, some of the police officers involved in the shootings are Hispanic and dare I say it, black. There is a bad element in every profession, teachers, doctors, politicians and yes, police. But let’s take the false narrative out of the equation. It’s a terrible thing when any innocent person is killed, All Lives Matter.
The numbers tell a different story. Like all statistics, they bounce around from year to year, but let’s go with the Washington Post’s study of police shootings in 2015. The Post found that 990 people, almost all of them men, were shot and killed by law enforcement last year. Before you start calling them victims, however, note that the Post also found that in three-quarters of these incidents, police were defending either themselves or someone else who was, at that moment, under attack. That leaves around 250 cases that were not obvious self-defense or defense of a third person. That doesn’t mean, of course, that those shootings were unjustified.
What was the racial breakdown of those who were shot by police in 2015? The largest number, 494, almost exactly half, were white. 258 were black, 172 were Hispanic, and the remaining 66 were either “other” or unknown. (Interestingly, Asians are rarely shot by police officers.)
The 258 blacks represent 26% of the total. That is about double the percentage of blacks in the American population. Is that prima facie evidence of racism on the part of law enforcement? Of course not. It is common knowledge that blacks have an unusually high rate of contact with the police, both as victims and as perpetrators. In 2012-2013, the Department of Justice found that blacks were the perpetrators of 24% of all violent crimes where the race of the perpetrator was known (in 7.8% of violent crimes, it was unknown).
So the percentage of blacks fatally shot by police officers (26%) is almost exactly equal to the percentage of blacks committing violent crimes (24%). Indeed, given that the black homicide rate is around eight times the white rate, it is surprising that the portion of blacks fatally shot by policemen is not higher.
From Instapundit: Heather Mac Donald has a lot more on this in her new book, The War on Cops: How the New Attack on Law and Order Makes Everyone Less Safe. Remember that all the noise about this is just a cynical effort to boost black turnout in November. They create a new cause celebre the summer before every election.
