The return … Like an emperor returning from a long campaign to address his adoring public, former President Barack Obama strode into the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and cut right to the chase. He delivered a speech that had the propaganda wing of Resistance Inc. getting that tingling feeling all over again.
After explaining how President Washington set the tone for presidents returning to private life and not commenting on their successors, and saying his intention was to follow that lead, Barack Obama launched into a fiery attack on Donald Trump, his supporters, and what he sees as the state of the nation.
I wrote earlier today about how CNN media critic/cheerleader Brian Stelter rushed to Obama’s defense. Stelter’s attempt at running cover for Obama doesn’t stand up to scrutiny.
Easily fact-checked … One of the big whoppers of Obama’s speech was when he asked, “How hard can that be? Saying that Nazis are bad.” The Hill ran a story on that part of the speech. Funny thing is, there’s no mention of what Donald Trump has actually said about Nazis. Even CNN reported that in the aftermath of the Charlottesville rally, Trump called Nazis and the KKK “repugnant.”
I’m sure PolitiFact will be all over this.

Oliver Darcy gets his scalp … On Tuesday, Infowars host Alex Jones confronted CNN’s resident thought cop Oliver Darcy on his campaign to get people banned from social media. Jones’ lecture to Darcy was harsh, pointed, and pretty much on the mark. Like all bullies, Darcy cowered when he was confronted.
Fast-forward to Thursday. Because Jones livestreamed his confrontation with Darcy on Periscope, which is owned by Twitter, the social network banned Jones and Infowars for life.
Make no mistake about it. This was Darcy’s endgame and what the Left wants: the silencing of alternative voices. From the campaign to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine to the push to regulate political speech on the internet to Dianne Feinstein wanting to basically give licenses for journalism, the Left has a long war against conservative speech and thought.
Make no mistake about it. Once they get through with Alex Jones, Gavin McInnes, and whoever’s next, they’re coming for you. You might think you’ll get around it by using a different service, but what happens when they shift their focus to internet hosts and the nameservers that list conservative domains?
The time to fight back against this censorship is now. Not when they’re on your doorstep.
I can’t fight back alone against the mainstream media. I need your help. There are two ways you can help. First, send your friends – and even your enemies – over to the WTF MSM!? email subscription page and get them sign up. Second, email me at [email protected] with anything questionable you see the media do. Together, we can fight back.
