Devin Nunes scored one victory in court that left the Fake News Media running for their lives

Published

Devin Nunes has had enough with the Fake News Media.

And Nunes is taking a page from Donald Trump’s playbook and fighting back.

And now Devin Nunes scored one victory in court that left the Fake News Media running for their lives.

Fake News Media outlets thought they could publish lies and hoaxes about Republicans and never face any consequences.

That ended when Devin Nunes filed a lawsuit against McClatchy news services for two stories that Nunes alleged the outlet knew to be false and that defamed his character.

Nunes sued over a story in the Fresno Bee – which is owned by McClatchy – about a lawsuit by a server aboard a yacht that was owned by a wine company Nunes owns interest in but had been rented to a third party in a charity auction.

The server claimed she witnessed acts of drugs and prostitution and despite Nunes stating he had nothing to do with the event or was on the boat, the Fresno Bee put his name in the headline and mentioned his name in the story more than 12 times.

“This is a case about character assassination and a public company that weaponized its powerful pen and used it as a terrible sword,” Nunes lawsuit alleged.

McClatchy filed a motion to dismiss the suit claiming it was filed in Virginia and they do not perform significant business in the Commonwealth.

The presiding judge temporarily rejected this argument and ordered McClatchy to provide Nunes discovery on this question as well as answer Nunes’ questions on the matter.

This ruling will temporarily allow the lawsuit to proceed.

Many Trump supporters cheered Nunes decision to file the lawsuit.

Fake News Media outlets have every right to publish news stories public figures do not like.

But what many Americans find infuriating in that they can knowingly publish fake news and lies about Republicans and never face any consequences.

    What must be realized is the media NOT in the news business! The media is the propaganda arm of the Left, aka the Demo-rat Party! Just as Pravda was the propaganda arm of the Soviet Union’s Communist Party! No difference! None! News is filtered and spun to fit the left’s narrative, ignored if it reflects well on Trump or Republicans, lied about, or made up! I learned the duplicity of the media back in the 1970s! It is a thousand times worse now!

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the democrats will blame you for their Chapter 11 filing. I dare say Greg couldn’t find anything you said that wasn’t true. The left considers anything not in their approved narrative for approved news outlets to be fake. Lofty standards huh?

    Need to go after each and every FAKE NEWS OUTLET/ORGANIZATION with a vengeance. Sue them for a tremendous amount that will make them think twice before publishing false information/lies. A few that go out of business may deter sympathizers to that kind of publishing. Make it HURT!

    Honorable Devin Nunez is the most honest and straight forward person I am aware of. This fact, I would guess, is making McClatchy extremely nervous knowing that his organization has to fight an honest man with nothing more than false statements made for the purpose of harming a very fine man.

You won’t believe what The View wants to do to Tucker Carlson and Tulsi Gabbard

Published

on

The war in Ukraine has sparked a global crisis with many devastating consequences.

Worse yet, the war propaganda coming from the so-called “mainstream” media is appalling.

And you won’t believe what The View wants to do to Tucker Carlson and Tulsi Gabbard.

The Democrat Media Complex and the warmongers of both parties are itching for escalation in the war in Ukraine.

On the Left, Congressman Eric Swalwell floated the idea of expelling Russian students from the country.

Neoconservatives on the Right like Adam Kinzinger – whose Congressional district was gerrymandered out of existence by Illinois Democrats – wants a no-fly zone over Ukraine, and Senator Lindsey Graham called for someone in the Russian government to assassinate Vladimir Putin.

People who are calling for peace and don’t want to see brinkmanship with a nuclear power, and people who are pushing back against dangerous war propaganda have been labeled “collaborators,” and even “traitors.”

Such is the case with Fox News host Tucker Carlson and former Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard.

That’s why the harpies on The View want Carlson and Gabbard investigated and arrested by the Department of Justice.

So-called “Republican” Ana Navarro, who hasn’t espoused a real conservative opinion in a decade, argued, “I think DOJ (Department of Justice) in the same way it is setting up a task force to investigate oligarchs, should look into people who are Russian propagandists and shilling for Putin.”

The establishment is so hot for war, combating propaganda and resisting American involvement is somehow tantamount to “shilling for Putin.”

Whoopi Goldberg got in on the act and said, “They used to arrest people for doing stuff like this. If they thought you were colluding with a Russian agent. If they thought you were putting out information or taking information and handing over to Russia. They used to actually investigate stuff like this.”

Goldberg’s statement is mind-blowing considering she was highly critical of the Hollywood blacklist of the past.

There were communists in the State Department, media, entertainment, and academia that were actually collaborating with the Soviet Union, and the Left believed the McCarthy Era was the worst thing that ever happened in America.

It’s impossible to oppose McCarthyism and call for Carlson and Gabbard to be investigated and arrested.

There is no way that the panelists of The View would have been on board with arresting people who opposed the Vietnam War.

Carlson, who has the top rated show in cable news, is probably the strongest anti-war voice on television.

And Gabbard, a former Army reserve officer, became persona non grata for her anti-war positions.

The ladies of The View and the Left more broadly are exposing themselves to be authoritarians.

One journalist’s lawsuit could end Big Tech censoring conservatives

Published

on

Social media companies suppressing conservative speech is getting out of hand.

Now someone is fighting back.

And one journalist’s lawsuit could end Big Tech censoring conservatives.

Twitter banned former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson for supposedly spreading “misinformation” about the coronavirus vaccine.

Berenson’s “crime” was posting that the COVID vaccine did not stop transmission of the virus.

In Berenson’s lawsuit, the former New York Times reporter argues that his comments were objectively true.

Berenson also cites California law, which defines common carriers as a platform that “offers to the public to carry persons, property, or messages.”

This argument could prove vital as Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas hinted in an April opinion that Big Tech companies fall under the definition of a common carrier like the phone or mail company, which would limit the ability of Big Tech to censor speech.

Berenson also argued that Twitter acted as an agent of the government to censor his speech, citing Twitter banning Berenson shortly after Joe Biden called on Big Tech companies to censor “misinformation” about the coronavirus.

“The extraordinarily close nexus between the July 2021 statements by senior executive branch officials—including President Biden himself—calling for censorship by such companies and Twitter’s corresponding immediate actions against Mr. Berenson,” the lawsuit added.

There is already established case law that the government cannot pressure private companies to carry out actions that would be unconstitutional if the government performed them.

That argument – as well as the common carrier contention – lays out two legal paths for Berenson to argue his case and potentially find a receptive audience at the Supreme Court.

Conservatives waited for years for a manner in which to secure legal recourse to Big Tech’s ideologically motivated censorship.

Thanks to Berenson’s lawsuit and Big Tech’s overreach, they may have finally found a silver bullet.

Big Tech is trying to censor one undeniable truth about the COVID vaccine

Published

on

Social media censorship is out of control.

Ever since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, Big Tech began banning users for posting true information.

And now Big Tech is trying to censor one undeniable truth about the COVID vaccine.

According to a new policy implemented by Twitter, the social media platform can now impose penalties up to a permanent suspension for posting that a vaccinated individual can spread COVID.

“When Tweets include misleading information about Covid-19, we may place a label on those tweets that includes corrective information about that claim,” Twitter’s policy reads. “We may apply labels to Tweets that contain, for example . . . false or misleading claims that people who have received the vaccine can spread or shed the virus (or symptoms, or immunity) to unvaccinated people.”

At the start of the pandemic, social media platforms banned users for posting that the virus likely escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China.

Now Twitter is threatening to ban anyone for posting truthful information about vaccinated individuals still being able to spread COVID.

Twitter’s new policy runs contrary to Centers for Disease Control guidelines that state that “risk for SARS-CoV-2 infection in fully vaccinated people cannot be completely eliminated as long as there is continued community transmission of the virus.”

In addition, Nature.com reported on a study published in October, which showed that fully vaccinated individuals possessed a lower risk of spreading COVID, but that spread was still possible and the vaccine’s protection against spread waned over time.

“The authors found that although the vaccines did offer some protection against infection and onward transmission, Delta dampened that effect. A person who was fully vaccinated and then had a ‘breakthrough’ Delta infection was almost twice as likely to pass on the virus as someone who was infected with Alpha. And that was on top of the higher risk of having a breakthrough infection caused by Delta than one caused by Alpha,” Nature.com reported.

One reason so many people do not trust either the vaccines or the authorities promising the vaccines are safe and effective is because no one allows an honest discussion of the vaccines.

Any hint that the vaccines may not be 100% perfect is labeled as misinformation, a conspiracy theory or “anti-vaxx.”

But Twitter censoring people for posting an honest fact that vaccinated people – while at lower risk – can still spread the coronavirus leaves people with the impression that elite institutions have something to hide.
