Welcome to Trump’s America, where journalists who are not supportive of this administration are treated like enemies of the people.

President Trump’s political allies are trying to raise at least $2 million to investigate reporters and editors of The New York Times, The Washington Post and other outlets, according to a three-page fundraising pitch reviewed by Axios.

Trump’s war on the media is expanding. This group will target reporters and editors, while other GOP 2020 entities go after the social media platforms, alleging bias, officials tell us.

The group claims it will slip damaging information about reporters and editors to “friendly media outlets,” such as Breitbart, and traditional media, if possible.

People involved in raising the funds include GOP consultant Arthur Schwartz and the “loose network” that the N.Y. Times reported last week is targeting journalists. The operations are to be run by undisclosed others.

The prospectus for the new project says it’s “targeting the people producing the news.”

The irony: The New York Times exposed an extremely improvisational effort that had outed a Times editor for past anti-Semitic tweets.

This new group is now using the exposure to try to formalize and fund the operation.

Organizers joke that their slogan should be: “Brought to you by The New York Times.”
Under “Primary Targets,” the pitch lists:

“CNN, MSNBC, all broadcast networks, NY Times, Washington Post, BuzzFeed, Huffington Post, and all others that routinely incorporate bias and misinformation in to their coverage. We will also track the reporters and editors of these organizations.”

Axios argues that Media Matters an organization founded by a Clinton supporter does essentially the same takse. 

However Media Matters typically targets conservative media bias, it does not threaten to investigate individuals in an attempt to shut them up. 

What these people are proposing is to intimidate journalists into avoiding topics or investigations that might upset their dear leader. 

Those are Kremlin tactics, not American tactics.

    Donald Trump starts to plot his ‘revenge’ after his presidency: Bill O’Reilly book

    Most former presidents search for projects that help communities, start foundations and more public services after they leave the office. Former President Jimmy Carter has become the unofficial ambassador to build homes for those in poverty and helping stop diseases in Africa. Former President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle have started a foundation that works to help youth in Chicago and internationally, get more involved in making their communities a better place. President Donald Trump has opted for a different path: revenge.

    A new book by former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, The United States of Trump, quotes the president promising he’ll strike back against the media when he leaves the White House. A Washington Examiner review cited the most “insightful” conversation between the two men coming at the end of the book.

    “You know, the media doesn’t care if they hurt families,” Trump said. “But when I leave office, I’ll have my revenge. … Without Trump, what have they got?”

      I am so tired of hearing the rationalization of the left in this country because they hate Donald Trump, inexplicably and without foundation. They choose to hate America. The Democrats have truly become the party of hate.

      Trump, Lou Dobbs, and Alan Der$HOWitz don’t represent America’s future.

      GOOD!

    Did u see this G?

    Alaska Airlines flight attendant who screamed for 200 passengers to flee Newark International Airport had asked two men ‘bizarre’ questions before raising the alarm

    A flight attendant who caused panic at Newark International Airport when she screamed for people to evacuate had asked two male passengers a series of ‘bizarre’ questions just moments before she raised the alarm.

    Alaska Airlines apologized on Tuesday after their flight attendant sent about 200 passengers running from the airport terminal in New Jersey the night before in what turned out to be a false alarm.

    Authorities said the flight attendant hit the panic button at about 8.30pm after speaking to two men in Terminal A.

    She screamed for passengers to evacuate as the two men ran away.

    11 times Trump embarrassed himself by revealing his ignorance of basic history

    Trump refuses to release his college transcripts, meaning no one knows how well — or poorly — Trump performed during his college years. But if his public comments about basic history are any indication of his level of knowledge, it is hard to imagine him passing classes without a tremendously generous professor.

    Here are 11 times Trump showed an astounding level of ignorance and/or callous indifference about basic history.

      1) “You know, they love me in the Netherlands”
      2) made it sound like Douglass, who died in 1895, is still alive
      4) “manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over the airports,” during the war for independence.
      9) On the 80th anniversary of Nazi Germany’s invasion of Poland, Trump had a special message for Poland: Congrats!
      10) Putin had already invaded Ukraine in 2014 and annexed CRIMEa.

    Mitch McConnell Throws A Giant Fit Over Being Called Moscow Mitch

    ……Mitch McConnell could lose the nickname quickly if he would bring the election security bills that would protect the nation’s elections from future Russian attacks to the Senate floor for a vote. McConnell personally has been blocking the legislation that passed the House from being voted on in the Senate. If the Majority Leader is such a vehement anti-Russian warrior, why is he blocking legislation that would keep Putin out of US elections?

    BUSTED: Trump official demanded Fox News re-wording on story — and they may have broken ‘propaganda’ laws

    Newly released documents reveal how cozy the Trump administration is with Fox News and Fox Business.

    Communications obtained through FOIA by the non-profit Democracy Forward found that administration officials tried to shape the coverage across Fox. In one instance, a Treasury official told a Fox Business Network employee to make changes to an article about Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin. They agreed.

    “This kind of cozy, behind-the-scenes interaction between government employees and members of the media raises alarm bells, and such direct intervention could be illegal,” Democracy Forward told the Daily Beast, accusing Fox of acting as a propaganda channel for the Trump administration.

    Trump’s Wacky, Angry, and Extreme August

    …..The Trumpian extremes on display in the third August of his Presidency revived a debate about whether he is descending into even less Presidential behavior, shedding the remaining constraints imposed upon him by his office and the efforts of his ever-changing staff. If it seems as if Trump is wackier, angrier, more willing to lash out, and more desperately seeking attention, that is because he is. This, at least, is my conclusion after reviewing his Twitter feed from the past month, along with his public statements, remarks to the press, speeches, and rallies. To revisit a month in the life of this President was exhausting, a dark journey to a nasty and contentious place. And, while Trump’s performance raised many questions that we can’t answer about just what is going on in his head, it was also revelatory: the thirty-one days of August, 2019, turn out to be an extraordinary catalogue of Trump’s in-our-faces meltdown.

    OT How long before Trump tweets personal attacks against Bahamians? I doubt he will encourage people to assist in aiding relief.

    9 out of 13 comments from the same loser. Pathetic.

    All the left wing media mentioned above still arrogantly believes that they can control the politics in this country.

    It is so obvious they are about to be embarrassed again. It is almost worth it to watch loser Maddow feign disbelief and crying again, even though it just means mega cash for her for the next four years. She is praying for another Trump win, believe it.
