Newsmax Dumps Lara Logan For Saying World Leaders ‘Dine On The Blood Of Children’

Right-wing “news” network Newsmax has banned Lara Logan from its airwaves after she went on a hateful QAnon-style rant during an appearance earlier this week.

Newsmax released a statement which reads:

“Newsmax condemns in the strongest terms the reprehensible statements made by Lara Logan and her views do not reflect our network. We have no plans to interview her again.”

Logan got herself excised from Newsmax for telling host Eric Bolling:

“God believes in sovereignty, and national identity, and the sanctity of family, and all the things that we’ve lived with from the beginning of time. And he knows that the open border is Satan’s way of taking control of the world through all of these people who are his stooges and his and his servants.

“And they may think that they’re going to become gods. That’s what they tell us. you’ve all known [historian Yuval Noah] Harari and all the rest of them at the World Economic Forum. You know, the ones who want us eating insects, cockroaches, and that while they dine on the blood of children? Those are the people, right? They’re not gonna win. They’re not going to win.”

Before she became a regular on Newsmax, Logan made appearances on Fox Nation. But she was booted from that site when she made a hateful comparison of Dr. Anthony Fauci to Nazi “angel of death” Dr. Josef Mengele.

Not so long ago, Logan was a respected and award-winning reporter for CBS news, where she filed regular reports for “60 Minutes.”

Trump Sues CNN For $475 Million – And The Network Is Already Getting The Last Laugh

Proving for the millionth time that he’s one of the most ignorantly litigious human beings ever born, disgraced, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump has filed suit against CNN on charges of defamation and is seeking $475 million in compensatory damages.

The suit, which was filed in a Florida federal court, reads in part:

CNN has sought to use its massive influence— purportedly as a “trusted” news source—to defame the Plaintiff in the minds of its viewers and readers for the purpose of defeating him politically, culminating in CNN claiming credit for “[getting] Trump out” in the 2020 presidential election. CNN’s campaign of dissuasion in the form of libel and slander against the Plaintiff has only escalated in recent months as CNN fears the Plaintiff will run for president in 2024. As a part of its concerted effort to tilt the political balance to the Left, CNN has tried to taint the Plaintiff with a series of ever-more scandalous, false, and defamatory labels of “racist,” “Russian lackey,” “insurrectionist,” and ultimately “Hitler.”

In July, the loser ex-president also threatened to sue other media outlets for supposedly defaming him, making his announcement in a letter released through his Save America PAC that he “will also be commencing actions against other media outlets who have defamed me and defrauded the public regarding the overwhelming evidence of fraud throughout the 2020 Election. I will never stop fighting for the truth and for the future of our Country!”

The suit is clearly little more than a publicity stunt and an attempt to change the subject from the multiple legal investigations that threaten to send Trump to prison for the remainder of his life.

Does CNN sound worried about being sued? As a matter of fact, they had the perfect response to Trump’s bluster when he first began making noises about lawsuits against media outlets, noting:

CNN has had the opportunity to review your letter of July 21, 2022, and to evaluate your demand to take down and retract the 34 articles and television segments you identify as defamatory, and to cease referring to representations made by former President Trump regarding the outcome of the 2020 presidential election as “lies.” We decline your request.

While we will address the merits of any lawsuit should one be filed, we note that you have not identified a single false or defamatory statement in your letter. It is well-established that the outcome of the 2020 presidential election was unaffected by fraud, as verified by the dismissal of no fewer than 50 lawsuits by judges across the United States asserting otherwise, the sanctioning of multiple attorneys for making unsubstantiated election-fraud claims, and investigations conducted by the Department of Justice, Congress, and various state and local bodies.

That’s how you flip off a blowhard like Donald Trump.

Capitol Insurrection January 6 Media in America WTF?!

Fox News Is Now Referring To The Jan. 6 Insurrection As An ‘Election Justice Protest’

If you’ve read George Orwell’s novel, 1984, then you know one of the most important ways the totalitarian government of Big Brother keeps control over the people is with the use of language, especially as that language relates to the news and information people are shown.

Orwell called the manipulation of language for the purpose of tyranny “Newspeak,” and he explained in an appendix to the novel:

The purpose of Newspeak was not only to provide a medium of expression for the world-view and mental habits proper to the devotees of Ingsoc, but to make all other modes of thought impossible.

Open Culture elaborates on that idea:

Newspeak isn’t just a set of buzzwords, but the deliberate replacement of one set of words in the language for another.

There are examples of newspeak throughout the novel, most notably in the phrase, “War is peace, freedom is slavery, and ignorance is strength.”

Such a twisting of the language is essential for creating a “reality” that is pleasing to the overlords who control everything that’s seen and heard in Orwell’s new world.

Newspeak is taking place in the United States right now, most notably at Fox News, where the January 6, 2021 Capitol insurrection is being rebranded by Fox host Tucker Carlson as an “election justice protest,” Media Matters reports, and Carlson added:

“So again, that’s the sitting vice president who they tell us over and over, and you just heard her say it, received more votes than any vice president in history. And if you don’t believe that ― and there are reasons not to believe that ― if you don’t believe that, you’re like [Sept. 11 hijacker] Mohamed Atta. Your beliefs are acts of terror, you’re comparable to a mass murderer and you need to be pursued by law enforcement.”

Rioting and insurrection are now being fed to the Fox masses as an “election justice protest.” The truth is too real, so it must be bent to serve another narrative, one that papers over the murder committed on Jan. 6 and turns it into a protest for justice.

Newspeak is not just a matter of fiction. It’s among us, and it’s a very real threat to this republic.

Newsmax Host Eric Bolling: Labor Day Is A Communist Holiday

If you had Monday off for Labor Day, Newsmax host Eric Bolling wants you to know that you’re a communist.

On his show, Bolling bragged that he was working on Labor Day, telling the 11 people who were viewing his “show”:

“You’re looking at a fresh, all-new show tonight because we’re here for you and for this reason, because news doesn’t take a holiday, neither do we.”

And that led to the communism comment:

“Unlike the old and stale shows over at our competitor tonight. who’s off celebrating this fine, fair communist holiday we call Labor Day. so only here….”

Here’s a little bit of the history of Labor Day in the United States, courtesy of CNN:

Labor Day was first celebrated unofficially by labor activists and individual states in the late 1800s, according to the US Department of Labor. New York was the first state to introduce a bill recognizing Labor Day, but Oregon was the first to actually codify it into law in 1887. Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York had followed suit by the end of 1887.

Joshua Freeman, a labor historian and professor emeritus at the City University of New York, tells CNN that the holiday developed as unions were beginning to strengthen again after the 1870s recession.

In New York City, two events converged that contributed to the formation of Labor Day, Freeman says. First, the now-defunct Central Labor Union was formed as a “umbrella body” for unions across trades and ethnic groups. Additionally, the Knights of Labor, then the largest national labor convention, held a convention in the city, complete with a large parade. But the parade fell on a Tuesday at the start of September — and many workers were unable to attend.

The convention was a huge success, and unions around the country started holding their own labor celebrations at the start of September, usually on the first Monday of the month.

It wasn’t until June 28, 1894 that Congress passed an act naming the first day of September a legal holiday called Labor Day.

How exactly is that communist or communism? The holiday was passed by Congress and signed into law by Grover Cleveland.

So if indeed you enjoyed cooking out and spending time with your family on Monday, you’re a communist. Eric Bolling says so, and that means it has to be true, right?

Trump Slams Fox For ‘Pushing The Democrat Agenda’ – Offers to Help CNN Go ‘Conservative’

After attacking CNN for years as purveyors of “fake news,” disgraced former president Donald Trump is now offering to help the network shift to being “conservative.”

At the same time, Trump is slamming Fox News for “pushing the Democrat agenda” and suggesting they are on the way out as a force in right-wing media.

Trump made those statements on his Truth Social (a.k.a. Twitter for losers) platform Sunday, with Newsweek reporting:

Trump hit out at Fox News in a Truth Social post on Sunday in the latest sign the former president’s opinion of the news channel—which he frequently watched and praised during his time in the White House—has soured slightly.

In the same social media post, Trump also suggested it would be an “absolute gold mine” if CNN became conservative amid reports the channel is aiming to become more politically neutral and less critical of the former president under new leader Chris Licht.

Here’s what the twice-impeached ex-president had to say about the two networks:

“Wow! Fox News is really pushing the Democrats and the Democrat agenda. Gets worse every single day. So many Dems interviewed with only softball questions, then Republican counterparts get creamed.”

“If ‘low ratings’ CNN ever went Conservative, they would be an absolute gold mine, and I would help them to do so.”

It has indeed appeared that CNN is taking a sudden turn to the right, with Sara Fischer of Axios reporting

In a memo to staff in May, Licht said he wants CNN to help regain the trust that many people have lost in media, by “fearlessly speaking truth to power, challenging the status quo, questioning ‘group-think,’ and educating viewers and readers with straightforward facts and insightful commentary, while always being respectful of differing viewpoints.

“People are freaked out,” said one CNN journalist. “It almost feels like there’s a pattern. Is there a purge going on? They seem to be sending a message: ‘Watch what you say. Watch what you do.’

However, before CNN decides to ink a pact with the devil (Trump), they’d be wise to consider that if Donald is now turning on his longtime ally Fox, he wouldn’t think twice about tossing CNN under the bus, too.
