Rachel Maddow could end up in legal trouble after she was served this letter



Rachel Maddow prides herself on being the most anti-Trump voice on television.

Since the start of his campaign, she has used her show to spread anti-Trump lies.

And now she could end up in legal trouble after she was served one letter.

If there’s one thing the mainstream media hates more than President Trump, it is competition.

So they are especially angry at One America News Network, which prides itself on being a network that covers President Trump fairly.

That’s why Rachel Maddow, and the rest of the Fake News Media, constantly attack them.

But Maddow, along with Kevin Poulsen of the far-Left Daily Beast, crossed the line with their latest attack.

They claimed that a reporter for OANN is on the payroll of the Russian government, when in reality, that employee simply has published a few articles at an unrelated website that receives funds from Russia.

Maddow went so far as to claim that the news network is “liberally Russian propaganda.”

That’s why lawyers for OANN sent Maddow and the Daily Beast a letter demanding they retract their claim, or face legal action.

NewsBusters reports:

After more than two fruitless years accusing President Trump of collusion with Russia, some liberals apparently still consider that tactic a winning strategy — when used to attack anyone even remotely connected to the Republican occupant of the White House.

One example of that is the claim from MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Kevin Poulsen of the liberal Daily Beast website since both have suggested the One America News Network — which Trump has called his new favorite news outlet — is a fountain of Russian propaganda.

OANN has demanded retractions from Maddow and the Daily Beast with angry letters from their law firm Miller Barondess. In an item posted on Monday by Daily Caller reporter Shelby Talcott:

Poulsen wrote an article [on July 22] stating OANN’s Kristian Rouz is a “Russian national on the payroll of the Kremlin’s official propaganda outlet, Sputnik.”

That same day, Maddow said on The Rachel Maddow Show that OANN “really, literally is Russian propaganda.”

For years, Maddow has launched attacks at anybody she disagrees with, oftentimes with the attacks being entirely false.

And now somebody is fighting back.

Do you watch One America News Network?

    I have been watching OANN since Direct started carrying them. FOX news has been headed to the Left since Murdock gave control to him son. OANN and Newsmax are 90% of what I watch. Even the loCal ABC, CBS & NBC have changed their coverge to the Far left narrative. Rachel Maddox is human version of the National Enquirer.

      No, she isn’t . She is smart, funny, clear, concise and complete. When she is critical of anyone, she is certain to offer sources, or personal observations derived from reviewing videos from indisputable sources. We would all be wise to watch her show. Then we can compare to those who wish to intelligently discuss what is obvious based on facts….and not opinions.

        I agree with you, Kent. Maddow is one of the best journalists in our nation. I appreciate her knowledge and ability to to back up her findings with investigative facts.

        I find this article quite amusing considering Fox Entertainment “News” and OANN consistently lie and spout information that is unequivocally false and easily verified. Both are a hostile, divisive, racist and nationalist propaganda network that will support Trump even if he kills someone on 5th Avenue.

        This article has the audacity to go after Maddow for reporting the truth! Now, that is funny!

I couldn’t stand her from the first and only time I listened to just a few if her words. With the Freedom of Speech many low class, disrespectful people talk down about others. In any other country she would be arrested for her words especially about Our President or the leader of any country. Even my spit it too good for her. She and her followers are pure bums. She’s what’s in the toilet to be flushed and never return. Roachl Madcow … Mmmooo-!!!!

    Even Native American tribes have wanted border safety. They were on TV (public broadcasting) probably close to 20 years ago, begging for the illegals to stop trespassing on their land.
    It wasn’t just trespassing – the illegals leave mountains of trash and syringes and other garbage that is expensive to clean up.
    The BLM pays out millions just in this type of clean up effort.
    And do a search: “Drugs on Reservations” – as the Native American kids are even raped by the gangs in order to get them to join. We’re talking about ILLEGAL MEXICAN DRUGS.

What the mainstream media said about Ilhan Omar will infuriate you




There is nothing the mainstream media won’t do to help their pals in the Democrat Party.

Even an anti-Semite like Ilhan Omar gets special treatment.

And what the mainstream media just said about Ilhan Omar will infuriate you.

While the mainstream media is trying to convince America that President Donald Trump is a bigot, Rep. Ilhan Omar continues to publicly broadcast her hatred.

In a series of infamous tweets, the freshman representative expressed her hatred for the Jewish State of Israel and her disdain for any politician who stands with them.

Not only that, but she has publicly supported the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement calling on companies to boycott the State of Israel.

Because of that, Israel has denied her the ability to travel to their country.

In response, the mainstream media lost their minds, with MSNBC running a “fact check,” claiming that Omar, and her friend Rep. Rashida Tlaib, don’t hate Israel, and that they love Jews.

NewsBusters reports:

Melvin turned to White House correspondent Kristen Welker and wondered: “What’s this all about?” Welker decided to offer “a little bit of a fact check” on the topic by glossing over the anti-Israel sentiments of Omar and Tlaib:

Neither has ever said that they hate Israel or the Israeli people, they have been critical of the Israeli government. They recently voted, in essence, in favor a boycott of the Israeli state over its treatment of Palestinians and they have made some controversial comments about Israelis, Omar having to walk back some of those comments.

The reporter didn’t bother to actually remind viewers what those “controversial comments” were.

Let’s review:

In 2012, Omar took to Twitter and ranted about how “evil” Israel “hypnotized the world.”

In February, after having been elected to Congress, Omar again shared her anti-Semitism on Twitter by suggesting that fellow lawmakers who support Israel must be getting paid off with campaign donations.”

If President Trump had ever said anything even remotely anti-Semitic, the media would lose their minds.

But because Omar is a socialist Democrat, they are looking out for one of their own.

There truly is a double standard in the media when it comes to their coverage of Donald Trump compared to prominent Democrats.

Do you think the media is unfair to President Trump?

Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.

CNN said one thing proving that they hate America




Since the election of President Donald Trump, CNN’s only goal has been to divide America.

They truly don’t care about anything besides getting rid of Trump.

And CNN just said one thing proving they hate America.

On Wednesday, the mainstream media was giddy with excitement over a slight slump in the stock market.

Instead of realizing the drop was nothing too far out of the ordinary, especially in the era of the Federal Reserve System, the media jumped on the opportunity to claim the U.S. is on the verge of a recession caused by Trump.

And in a segment on CNN hosted by John Berman, they couldn’t be happier about that.

CNN economic analyst Rana Foroohar happily declared that the recession is here, with another panelist gleefully stating Trump is going to be “in a world of hurt,” and that this will cause congressional Republicans to turn against him.

In reality, there is no recession on the horizon, according to former Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen.

But the fact that the economy has improved under Trump has been unbearable for the media, and they want nothing more than for the economy to decline, just so it will look bad for Trump.

NewsBusters reports:

Berman read a tweet claiming that Trump’s economic team consists of “a guy who plays an economist on TV, a nutcase the entire real economic profession has disowned, and the producer of Lego Batman.” And it turned out that the author of the tweet was none other than . . . a member of the panel: Catherine Rampell, a CNN commentator and Washington Post columnist.

John Avlon then weighed in to crow: “if the economy goes south, [Trump] is in a world of hurt.”

Alisyn Camerota then referred to a recent CNN panel of swing Trump voters, in which they indicated that if the economy crashed, their support for Trump would be “done.”

Rampell concurred: “he could lose a lot of those supporters.”

Foroohar then chimed in to say the economy was “not looking good” for 2020, “which I think is going to hurt his prospects.” She predicted “a lot of big crashes.”

Berman ended the segment by gleefully suggesting that an economic downturn could cause congressional Republicans to turn against Trump.

There are few things more un-American than calling for the economy to fail.

No matter who is in office, a strong economy helps all Americans.

The fact CNN seems to want the economy to fall apart proves they love attacking the President more than they actually love seeing things improving in the country.

Do you think CNN hates America?

This shocking video could end the career of CNN’s Chris Cuomo




CNN’s Chris Cuomo is one of the most deranged Trump haters on all of cable.

Now, Cuomo might have to pay the price for his hotheaded rants.

That’s because this shocking video could end the career of CNN’s Chris Cuomo.

A video exploded virally on social media of Cuomo confronting a heckler that called him “Fredo.”

Cuomo threatened the man’s life by throwing him down a flight of stairs.

Cuomo and CNN later tried to defend Cuomo’s terroristic threats by claiming “Fredo” is an ethnic slur against Italians on par with how blacks view the “n word.”

This is a lie.

The term “Fredo” comes from the Godfather movies in which Fredo Corleone is the weaker, more incompetent, less intelligent brother of Al Pacino’s Michael Corleone.

Critics mocked Chris Cuomo as a “Fredo” for years because his brother is the three-term Governor of New York while he is a low-rated host on fake news CNN.

“Fredo” has nothing to do with group characteristics and is an insult targeted at a specific person.

It is not a racist term.

And it certainly is nowhere close to how black Americans view the “n word.”

We will keep you up-to-date on any new developments in this ongoing story.
