The Liberal Media vs President Trump

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2017-04-19 12:12

From Newsbusters.org ...

As President Trump approaches the end of his first 100 days in office, he has received by far the most hostile press treatment of any incoming American president, with the broadcast networks punishing him with coverage that has been 89% negative. The networks largely ignored important national priorities such as jobs and the fight against ISIS, in favor of a news agenda that has been dominated by anti-Trump controversies and which closely matches what would be expected from an opposition party

This is just what I was telling John Friend in our podcast (see next post below) on Monday. It is a phenomenon that has not been seen before in my lifetime to this degree. The actual opposition party - the Democrats - would be 100% negative! You can continue reading this important article here.

Poland moves forward with refocusing history on Polish heroism and victimhood

The Museum of Second World War in Gdansk, Poland which opened on March 23, 2017 in the midst of controversy.


By Carolyn Yeager

POLAND IS MERGING TWO MUSEUMS OF HISTORY INTO ONE – the newly opened World War II Museum in Gdansk with another yet-to-be-established state-sanctioned institution that, when it opens, will be focused solely on Polish heroism during the Nazi occupation of Poland.

The current culture minister under the ruling Law and Justice Party, Piotr Glinski, has been pushing for a merger with a museum that currently exists only on paper, and is dedicated to the Battle of Westerplatte. In November 2016, the New York Times quoted Glinski saying that focusing on the September 1939 battle would better represent “heroic Polish self-defense,” and that the museum in the works failed to put “enough stress on the Polish point of view.”

Failed prosecution brings charge against judge in Nazi trial

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2017-04-11 15:40

95-year-old Hubert Zafke sits in a Newbrandenburg court with his lawyer Peter-Michael Diestel standing beside him.


By Carolyn Yeager

A JUDGE IN NEUBRANDENBURG IN GERMANY'S NORTHEAST IS ACCUSED of perverting the course of justice in one of the last Auschwitz trials brought by “holocaust survivors.” The charge has been brought by Jewish lawyer Thomas Walther, representing Walter Plywaski, 87, against Judge Klaus Kabisch. The lawyer for the accused former SS medic, 95 year-old Hubert Zafke, has defended the court's right to interpret the law as it sees fit, dismissing Walther's "media-friendly" criminal charges against Kabisch as a "provincial farce."

The prosecution's story goes that Walter and William Plywaski, aged 87 and 86, were brought to Auschwitz from Lodz, Poland, along with their parents on August 15, 1944. While they and their father survived, their mother was murdered in a gas chamber on the same day.

Full Jewish press is on to keep Special Envoy for Anti-Semitism in State Department

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2017-03-15 22:17

President Donald Trump welcomes Rex Tillerson to his administration after Tillerson's swearing in as Secretary of State. Now the Department is facing budget cuts that are instigating a controversy with Jews.


This Special Office was originally opposed by the State Department, but George W. Bush thought it would help him carry Florida in 2004.

By Carolyn Yeager

AS PROMISED, A BIPARTISAN GROUP OF 167 MEMBERS OF CONGRESS [out of 435 – less than half] have signed a letter to President Donald Trump asking him to keep intact the State Department’s Office of Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism. As I posted on February 27, President Trump plans to cut billions of dollars from the State Department budget and this particular office is on the cutting board.

Rightly so, I would say.

But Jews and their allies in Congress are pushing to keep the 2004 legislation in place. The letter begins: “As Members of Congress who care deeply about anti-Semitism at home and abroad, we urge you to maintain and prioritize the appointment of the Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism.” The initiative was spearheaded by Jewish Representative Eliot Engel (D-NY) who also happens to be chairman of the World Jewish Congress International Council of Jewish Parliamentarians.

Of the five co-sponsors, three are also Jewish (Nita Lowey D-NY, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen R-FL, Ted Deutch D-FL), one is Black (Marc Veasey D-TX) and one is White Catholic who had been a sponsor in 2004 (Christopher H. Smith (R-NJ).

Why would they lie?

Published by carolyn on Sat, 2016-10-15 01:27

By Carolyn Yeager

THIS QUESTION HAS BEEN ASKED FOR THE PAST FEW DAYS BY FEMALE PUNDITS and news show hosts, and all liberal Democrats on TV … about the women who are coming forth to accuse Republican nominee for president, Donald Trump, of forcing unwanted sexual advances on them. What reason would they have for lying? It was asked the other night by Megyn Kelly of Fox News, with a sorrowful look on her face as she seemed to be trying to make her eyes water to demonstrate how seriously she takes it.

But this question is one those of us engaged in historical revisionism are very familiar with. In holocaust revisionism, especially, it is used as a standard defense for the wild stories told by survivors (or surlievors, as I call them) without any corroborating evidence or witnesses to back them up. Why would they lie about such a thing, it is asked. What reason do they have to lie?

How naive. Plenty of reasons, is the answer.

AfD wins 14 percent in Berlin, coming in fifth among 7 parties

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2016-09-18 13:49

AfD co-chair Jörg Meuthen, left, and candidate Georg Pazderski celebrate the election results which came in as well as they could have hoped.


UPDATE: Final results:  AfD party - 14.2%!  The Social Democrats (SPD) - 21.6. Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU) -17.6. The Left party 15.6.  Green Party - 15.2. Free Democrats (FDP) - 6.7. Pirate Party - 1.7. CONGRATULATIONS AFD!


[UPDATED] THE ALTERNATIVE FOR GERMANY PARTY (AfD) POLLED AT 14.2 percent it's first time on the ballot in Berlin, giving it about 25 seats in the regional assembly. This is considered a big victory for the anti-immigrant party in “multi-cultural Berlin … a city of millions that is known for its open lifestyle,” as written in the Frankfurter Allegemeine Sunday paper.

The long-ruling Social Democrats (SPD) won the most seats by polling at 21.6 percent, losing 6.7 points from the last election in 2011. Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU) came in second at 17.6 percent, down 5.7 from 2011. The Left (Communist) party gained 3.9 and the Green Party lost 2.4 since 5 years ago.

Frauke Petry's car set ablaze in Leipzig – on eve of Berlin election

Published by carolyn on Sat, 2016-09-17 14:23

This is the scene on Friday night in a Leipzig neighborhood as Petry's car burns after being set ablaze by person(s) still unknown.


AFD CHIEF FRAUKE PETRY IS A VICTIM OF ARSON. Unknown persons under cover of darkness set her car on fire Friday night in Leipzig. The police investigating the crime scene say they are currently assuming it was arson. There has been no claim of responsibility.

Residents had noticed the fire and raised the alarm. The car burned out completely. Back in August 2015, Petrys company "PURinvent System GmbH" was the target of an attack. Butyric acid was spilled in the production hall and discs were smashed. The AfD has said that the attacks on its members in recent months have reached a level that borders on terror. During PEGIDA rallies in Dresden last year, cars belonging to rally-goers were set ablaze on several occasions.

Update on postponed Austrian election: Swiss printing company promises new envelopes in 24 hours

CEO of Elco, Hans-Jörg Aerni, says he would also serve Austria with his products


By Carolyn Yeager

A SWISS PRINTING COMPANY, ELCO, HAS SAID IT CAN PRODUCE the absentee voting envelopes for the Austrian presidential election in 24 hours!

So what is it with the Social Democrat/Peoples Party coalition government deciding it needs a two-month delay to deal with the faulty envelopes for the repeat run-off election scheduled for October 2nd – still over 2 weeks away. Doesn't this make the whole hulabaloo over having to re-arrange the voting schedule look ridiculous?

Austria postpones election until December 4th, against objections

Published by carolyn on Mon, 2016-09-12 11:07

FPÖ General Secretary Herbert Kickl calls for reform of the postal vote in Austria.


NORBERT HOFER WAS FAVORED TO WIN THE OCTOBER 2ND PRESIDENTAL RUNOFF ELECTION according to polling results, when a problem arose with the glue on the mail-in envelopes. The glue was defective! The envelopes came open by themselves, making them invalid. This under the government leadership of the Social Democratic Party (SPÖ).

What to do? Postpone the election for two more months, until December 4, of course, giving them time to turn things around! As Heinz-Christian Strache of Hofer's party, the Freedom Party (FPÖ), has been asking: "Has Austria become a banana republic?" Does it take two months to prepare new postal voting cards in a country as small as Austria? Do they think that by December people will be distracted with the winter holidays, including Christmas, and forget to vote? Or perhaps a big snowstorm will hamper the voting in the rural areas where the FPÖ is strong.
