Ted Cruz shut down this reporter for one disgusting act against his children



The Texas Senator is usually an affable, likeable guy who is slow to anger.

After all, he was able to meet with the obnoxious and noxious leftist actress Alyssa Milano, and that takes some real talent.

But Ted Cruz had enough and shut down this reporter for one disgusting act against his children.

Say what you will about politicians, and there is plenty bad to say, but one thing they have to deal with that most Americans don’t is reporters.

And that fact alone means they are worthy of at least some praise.

Most people have never had microphones shoved in their face with 50 cameramen jostling everything and everyone in sight to get the best shot all while 50 to 100 reporters scream at them to answer whatever question they thought important.

Politicians, and even actors, deserve some praise for going through that without punching reporters and knocking cameramen over.

But sometimes reporters go too far. Even for nice guys like Texas Senator Ted Cruz.

Last Monday, Cruz angrily shut down a reporter for Playboy who disgustingly dragged Cruz’s daughters into the Trump impeachment fiasco.

Cruz was talking with the media during one of the breaks in the opening arguments from President Trump’s defense team.

But then Playboy reporter Brian Karem, (who actually covers the White House for the one-time widely read men’s magazine), tried to poke holes in the president’s defense that had thus far been presented in the Senate.

“None of the president’s attorneys mentioned one single possible crime that Hunter or Joe Biden are accused of,” Karem blurted.

“Basically, what they said is Hunter Biden got a job, his dad was vice president,” Karem continued. “If that’s a crime, I mean, shouldn’t half of your children be in prison?”

“My children are 9 and 11,” Cruz replied.

He then angrily launched into Karem over what most reasonable people agree was a nasty and ignorant attack on Cruz’s young children.

“I’m sorry you want to throw a 9-year-old in prison,” Cruz said. “But at this point, my third-grader plays basketball and softball at her school, so stop playing the nasty Washington game.”

“That’s not a nasty Washington game,” Karem smirked.

“Attacking a 9-year-old?” Cruz shot back.

At that point Cruz had clearly had enough and though he continued to talk to the media he rightfully refused to even acknowledge Karem.

Karem’s questions showed both his blatant bias against Trump, Cruz, and the Republicans but also showed his complete and utter ignorance.

There was a time when if a reporter asked about a politician’s children, he knew whether they were 9 or 29. These days, even a simple Google search would have told him.

But that’s not how the media operates anymore. They would rather attack blindly and hope their ridiculous and biased questions result in mistakes by the politicians they are covering.

Well if they are Republicans that is. Democrats get a pass from almost all reporters now.

Do you think the reporter crossed a line with this attack on Cruz’s children?

    No way I could be an elected politician. I’m positive that I would have told that reporter to come closer so that everyone couldn’t hear what I had to say. Then I would have hit him in the face as hard and as many times as I could while explaining that he better never refer to my kids again in any conversation where the name Humter Biden has been mentioned or even thought of. Hell, just Thinking about it while I was typing this comment made me so mad that I threw my phone twice and stopped it once.

    These news people today couldn’t even get a job with the star. They are totally out of control and don’t care one iota about the truth. The sad thing is the number of people who believe what they say. When growing up my parents encouraged me to watch the evening news to learn about what’s going on in the world. Today even my grandkids question why they should watch people who lie constantly. ABC,CBS,NBC CNN, MSNBC, to some extent now Fox. Remember the days when reporters reported the new with complete objectivity, NO BIAS> NOT TODAY DISGUSTING.

    That is all most of the reporter do, is attack Republicans one way or another. SICK!
    There are a lot of them that need to lose their passes to get into Congress. They can’t be trusted just like the Demonrats.

    We don’t have free press anymore, we have propaganda arm of the democrat party. The msm parrots democrat talking points and in this case attacks children to make a democrat point. If a reporter did that to a democrat they’d be banished to Siberia.

    They all need to be fired and start over new reporters need to take a lie detector test before being hired and repeated every so often like drug tests to make sure they are not lying

    Sen Cruz, whom I admire & respect has more patience than I if that poor excuse for a reporter said that about my kiids he’ld be out cold on the ground & if he was dumb enough to get up I’ld knock him right back down. As a combat veteran of the Vietnam Era I back up what I say., I don’t look for trouble put when some creep attacks women children & family, he’s making a big mistake & as history has shown no doubt a coward.

    Yup. And Cruz should have punched Trump in the face when Trump accused Cruz’s father of helping to assassinate President Kennedy!

    The nasty’s [ media ] have forgotten what good journalism is any more. And I have a feeling this has something to do with George Soros. They would rather lose themselves to a man that others call the vampire, than to stand up and be Americans.

    Answer, Is Yes, “It Is Enough, Already”! If I was Mr. Cruz, I Would Ask A Question About That Certain Questionable Reporters Children, IF They Were Law Abiding Children, But IF They Were NOT Law Abiding, I Would Think It Would Fair Game, To Ask Those Questionable Reporters Children Actions!

Fake news CNN just got called out by the last place they would ever expect



CNN is once again under fire.

But it’s not conservatives or the Trump campaign exposing fake news CNN to harsh scrutiny.

And Fake news CNN just got called out by the last place they would ever expect.

Former top Clinton aide George Stephanopoulos ambushed Donald Trump at a town hall with supposedly undecided voters.

In reality, the voters were mainly a bunch of angry leftists who just wanted to yell at Trump.

On Thursday, it was Joe Biden’s turn in a town hall in Pennsylvania hosted by fake news CNN.

Going in, everyone expected CNN not to challenge Biden.

But the town hall featured such pathetically weak questions that even left-wing POLITICO called out CNN for a “kid gloves” event.

POLITICO reports:

For the second time this week, a presidential candidate fielded questions from voters in a town hall setting. But if ABC’s event with President Donald Trump was an icy grilling, CNN’s drive-in conversation with Joe Biden Thursday was more like an affable reunion of old acquaintances . . .

. . . Biden, by comparison, got a “total pass,” the Trump campaign complained afterward, in a typical lashing of the media. The Democratic nominee made the most of the friendly confines, relaying feel-your-pain anecdotes in mostly grammatical syntax and, until the last half-hour, with high-energy.

CNN stacked the audience with friendly Democrats including one man who previously posed for a photograph with Biden.

The New York Post reported that Biden faced such softball questions as, “how he would keep American workplaces safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, whether he’d benefited from white privilege, and how he would bring the nation together, with little follow up from moderator Anderson Cooper.”

The difference in treatment between Joe Biden’s town hall and Donald Trump’s town hall is because the Fake News Media wants to help Joe Biden win the election.

What The Washington Post just did to sabotage Trump’s re-election will have you red with rage



The Washington Post is one the power centers of the resistance to Donald Trump.

Partisans operate under the guise of “journalism” to attack Donald Trump and boost Joe Biden.

And what The Washington Post just did to sabotage Trump’s re-election will have you red with rage.

Fake News Media reporters are waging war on Donald Trump and his supporters.

The battlefield is social media and the Fake News Media is using their ability to exert peer and social pressure on tech companies to ban Trump supporters.

The latest example was a fake news story in The Washington Post attacking Turning Point USA for paying teenagers to post pro-Trump messages on social media.

Left-wing activists who advocate for the Democrats falsely compared this normal political activity to Russian trolls in Macedonia posting fake news stories in 2016.

The Washington Post reported:

Teenagers, some of them minors, are being paid to pump out the messages at the direction of Turning Point Action, an affiliate of Turning Point USA, the prominent conservative youth organization based in Phoenix, according to four people with independent knowledge of the effort. Their descriptions were confirmed by detailed notes from relatives of one of the teenagers who recorded conversations with him about the efforts.

The campaign draws on the spam-like behavior of bots and trolls, with the same or similar language posted repeatedly across social media. But it is carried out, at least in part, by humans paid to use their own accounts, though nowhere disclosing their relationship with Turning Point Action or the digital firm brought in to oversee the day-to-day activity. One user included a link to Turning Point USA’s website in his Twitter profile until The Washington Post began asking questions about the activity.

Activists reading from a shared set of talking points to amplify a message are common tactics in politics.

It’s what door to door canvassers and phone bankers do on a daily basis for campaigns and issue advocacy groups.

But because this was done on behalf of Donald Trump and in an election year The Post felt it was their moral obligation to silence this speech.

Social media companies quickly complied with The Post’s demands and banned the teenagers identified in the story.

This giant coronavirus lie just blew up in the Fake News Media’s face



Ever since the coronavirus began, the Fake News Media whipped up panic and hysteria over the virus.

News outlets knew scary stories would drive up ratings and clicks while at the same time damaging Donald Trump’s approval numbers.

But now this giant coronavirus lie just blew up in the Fake News Media’s face.

Donald Trump pushed to reopen schools because the economy cannot fully open unless parents do not have to stay home to watch their kids because of “virtual learning.”

Children also do not suffer bad outcomes for the coronavirus and there is research that shows young children do not easily spread the virus.

The Fake News Media is determined to keep schools closed to hurt the President’s re-election chances.

That’s why The Daily Beast published a story about four teachers dying from coronavirus with the scare headline “At Least 4 Teachers Have Died of COVID-19 Since Start of School Year.”

The Daily Beast wrote:

At least four teachers have died of coronavirus-related causes since the beginning of the school year—an ominous sign of what’s to come as students return to classrooms across the country. Demetria Bannister, 28, a teacher at Windsor Elementary School in Columbia, South Carolina, died on Monday, just three days after being diagnosed with COVID-19. Her parents “wish to remind others about the seriousness of this disease,” a school district spokesperson said in a news release, according to The State. She was described as an avid singer who “loved her students and never missed an opportunity to advocate for students and public education.”

Two teachers died in Mississippi and AshLee DeMarinis, 34, a teacher at John Evans Middle School in Potosi, Missouri, died on Sunday. The coronavirus had already devastated schools before the summer break. In New York alone, 75 Department of Education employees died from COVID-19, including 31 teachers. The American Federation of Teachers said 210 of its members have died of the virus.

There is one problem with this story.

The teachers in question did not contract coronavirus in school.

Instead, they became infected over summer break.

The Daily Beast published a dishonest and misleading headline because they want to scare parents into keeping the kids home from school.
