LORD: ‘There is a serious rot underlying the media’

As we head into the new year, it’s almost comical to look back at the left-wing media coverage in 2020. Jeffrey Lord appeared on The Ingraham Angle to review the worst offenders in the media over the past year.

“I think there is a serious rot that has come to underlie the national, liberal media, mainstream media. All of their standards are just gone with the wind. They’re open partisans and this, in a way, maybe one of President Trump’s biggest services is to out them,” he said.

“Decades ago, there were stories in the Kennedy days, of all days, I’ve gone back and read my history of reporters cheering for John F. Kennedy in the 1960 election and saying they all felt they were soldiers on the way to the new frontier with JFK,” he added.

“The only difference now is, it’s out there. Everybody sees it. The president has helped out them. There is a real rot there and I think they’ve got to do some serious soul searching about this. Not that that’ll happen.”

Perhaps one of the worst media offenses of 2020 was when the liberal media honored a top terrorist just because Trump killed him.

“Let’s just remember when the media thought it was a good thing when the president was Barack Obama and he took out Osama bin Laden and frankly, good for him. They all cheered him on,” Lord said.

“This is just so blatant at this point. If Donald Trump does something, it’s bad. If anybody else does something it’s good and it’s shameful and it, frankly, is damaging their own reputation,” he continued.

Another was when the media failed to admit the George Floyd protests throughout the summer were anything but peaceful.

“What’s always interesting to me is, they don’t care that you can see it,” Lord said. “It’s right there. It’s happening right in front of your own eyes, and yet they’re going to try and tell you that up is down and down is up, and the American people just no longer believe it. They no longer have credibility and seriously, that’s a big problem in the democratic society.”

The media even pushed the narrative that USPS was going to rig the election in Trump’s favor.

“They get to say anything they want and they’re never going to be held to account for it,” Lord urged. “Frankly, Lisa, that’s why conservative media – Rush Limbaugh, Laura, Sean, etc. – came to be, precisely because of this and that’s why they have an audience.”

It is no secret that the liberal media made the Hunter Biden story disappear. They refused to cover anything that would put their president-elect, Joe Biden, in a bad light. Lord warned that the media is playing games with our national security.

“Part of that Hunter Biden story was they want to ignore any and all ties of the Biden’s to China. This is going to have a serious impact if, in fact, Joe Biden takes the oath of office as president. What is going to be our China policy? What is our relationship here? They’re going to play hide the ball on this. This is not acceptable. This is the left-wing media machine playing hide and seek with national security. It’s not good.”

During the 2020 election, the media threw Biden softball after softball – asking easy, pre-selected questions.

“My favorite was, ‘do you like vanilla or chocolate ice cream?’ I’m not making that up. I mean, God Bless Peter Doocy from Fox out there trying to ask serious questions and they don’t want to do it,” he said.

“We’re going to be going through this for the next four years and the media itself is going to have to be held to account. As I say, there is a serious rot underlying the media when it acts like this and it’s not good,” he warned.

Progressives Angered by Corporate Ties of Incoming Biden Officials

Progressives wanted a Democrat in office, and they’re already complaining about Biden’s decisions. Biden is utilizing officials with corporate ties to help him make the transition into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The Daily Caller reports “Biden’s advisory team helping his transition with White House’s Office of Management and Budget” includes “executives from Amazon Web Services, Lyft” and Airbnb.

Progressive groups including Demand Justice, Public Citizen and the Sunrise Movement urged Biden to “decline to nominate or hire corporate executives, lobbyists and prominent corporate consultants.”  The demand was made in a letter in November, making reference to the staunch opposition Democrats’ had over similar nominations made by President Trump.

In the letter, the progressive groups wrote: “The [corporate-government] revolving door limits the trust Americans have in government and have time and time again led to bad policy outcomes.” Therefore, they wrote, “we urge you to take advantage of this unique and historic moment in American history to shut the revolving door and rebuild that trust.”

One of Biden’s top White House advisors and longtime aide has “strong ties to Amazon and its federal lobbying efforts” reports DCNF. The company also “recently hired his brother, Jeff Ricchetti, to lobby on COVID-19 and the implementation of the CARES Act.”

Richetti co-founded the lobbying firm Richetti Inc. after working as deputy chief of staff under President Bill Clinton. Biden’s incoming chief of staff Ron Klain worked with “AOL founder Steve Case in venture capital and warned about the impact government regulation can have on technology start-ups in a 2015 op-ed.”

Biden pulled a fast one over on the progressive groups and voters who believed he would keep corporate money out of politics. DCNF reports, “despite the ties between his developing administration and corporations, Biden took an aggressive stance against lobbyists and special interests during the campaign, pledging to reduce the influence of money in politics, heighten ethical standards, rein in financial conflicts of interest in the Executive Branch and more.”

Mitt Romney
/

McConnell, Romney and the Collaborationist Republicans

The headline over at Breitbart read this way:

Poll: 79% of Trump Voters Believe ‘Election Was Stolen Through Illegal Voting and Fraud’

The Rasmussen poll headlined it this way as reported by BizPac:

Rasmussen poll: 20-30% of Democrats believe the election was stolen from Trump

Then there was the detailed report from Trump aide Peter Navarro, who wrote his report as a private citizen. The headline right here at The Jeffrey Lord reported this:

The Immaculate Deception: Peter Navarro Documents A Stolen Election

There’s more out there like this – oh so very much more. But the constant thread, the simple fact, is that millions of Americans believe the 2020 election was stolen. And stolen not just from President Trump – but from them.

And what is the reaction of the Republican Establishment – before we even get to January 6th, the date Congress meets per the Constitution to ratify – or not ratify – the Electoral College? An Electoral College many see as counting stolen and illegal votes?

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell: “Our country has officially a President-elect & a Vice President-elect.  The Electoral College has spoken…Today, I want to congratulate Pres-elect Joe Biden.”

Senator Mitt Romney: “Clearly, if one pushes long and hard, once you’ve lost, you’ve lost.

And oh yes, there was also this as headlined by The Hill:

Mitt Romney did not vote for Trump in the 2020 election

Then there was my own Pennsylvania US Senator, Pat Toomey. Recall that Mr. Toomey is where he is because he was the “conservative” challenger to then-incumbent liberal Republican Senator Arlen Specter, defeating Specter in 2010. The headline from Newsmax was this:

Pennsylvania Sen. Toomey Says It’s Time Trump ‘Accept’ He’s Lost Election

Not to be forgotten here is Illinois Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger, as headlined here at Fox:

Rep. Kinzinger swipes at Trump, fellow House GOP for denying election loss: ‘It’s sad’
The Illinois congressman says it’s time to “Restore Our GOP”

As if that weren’t enough, Kinzinger added in a tweet:

Say what? Kinzinger says there is “no evidence”????

I personally have read lawsuits, read one affidavit after another from whistleblowers, listened carefully to state legislative hearings – and there’s plenty – more than plenty – of evidence of voter fraud.

So why are these Republicans and others going out of their way to sabotage millions of Republican voters, not to mention joining in to sacrifice the integrity of the American electoral process? Yes indeed, Mitch McConnell did a great job confirming judges. But there is no excuse for abandoning the field of battle in the middle of the battle.

So what in the world are McConnel, Romney, Toomey and Kinzinger and others in the GOP about? Not to mention all those Never Trumpers out there in the Lincoln Project and elsewhere?

Call them the Collaborationist Republicans. The Vichy Republicans.

For those who skipped their history of World War II and the fall of France to the Germans, here is a description of what it means to be a “collaborator” per Wikipedia:

“The meaning of “traitorous cooperation with the enemy”[7] dates from 1940, originally in reference to the Vichy Government of France which cooperated with the Germans, 1940–44.”

With millions of French lives at stake and the Germans pushing into Germany, the French collaborationists notoriously collaborated with the Germans, relocating their co-operating new government to the resort town of Vichy, thus establishing ever after the term “Vichy French” – which meant treacherous, turning their back on the French people to
cooperate with the enemy. It was left to French General Charles De Gaulle to refuse to cooperate with the collaborators, leaving France for Great Britain where he would become the voice of the French Resistance.

But wait, you say. Biden and company are the adversaries, not the enemy.

Hear this from former GOP House Speaker Newt Gingrich writing in The Washington Times:  The headline:

Why I will not accept Joe Biden as president
Unwillingness to accept election result grows out of a level of outrage unlike anything previously experienced

The former Speaker wrote this:

“Having spent more than four years watching the left #Resist President Donald Trump and focus entirely on undoing and undermining the 2016 election, it took me several days to understand the depth of my own feelings.

As I thought about it, I realized my anger and fear were not narrowly focused on votes. My unwillingness to relax and accept that the election grew out of a level of outrage and alienation, unlike anything I had experienced in more than 60 years of involvement in public affairs.

…When my candidate won, it was blamed on the Russians. We now know (four years later) Hillary Clinton’s own team financed the total lie that fueled this attack.

Members of the FBI twice engaged in criminal acts to help it along — once in avoiding prosecution of someone who had deleted 33,000 emails and had a subordinate use a hammer to physically destroy hard drives, and a second time by lying to FISA judges to destroy Gen. Michael Flynn and spy on then-candidate Donald Trump and his team. The national liberal media aided and abetted every step of the way. All this was purely an attempt to cripple the new president and lead to the appointment of a special counsel — who ultimately produced nothing.

Now, people in my world are told it is time to stop resisting and cooperate with the new president. But we remember that the Democrats wanted to cooperate with Mr. Trump so much that they began talking about his impeachment before he even took office. The Washington Post ran a story on Democrat impeachment plots the day of the inauguration.

In fact, nearly 70 Democratic lawmakers boycotted his inauguration. A massive left-wing demonstration was staged in Washington the day after, where Madonna announced she dreamed of blowing up the White House to widespread applause. These same forces want me to cooperate with their new president. I find myself adopting the Nancy Pelosi model of constant resistance. Nothing I have seen from Mr. Biden since the election offers me any hope that he will reach out to the more than 74 million Americans who voted for President Trump.”

Newt Gingrich is no collaborationist.

In short? In short, hell will freeze over before the base of the Republican Party collaborates in a stolen election. They will not simply resist, they will demand that a Biden Presidency be treated exactly as Democrats treated the Trump Presidency. Then – and only then, after a serious lesson is learned by Democrats and their corrupt media allies – can America be returned to the days of yore when losers gracefully conceded to winners and moved on as the “loyal opposition.”

There was noting of a “loyal opposition” in the last four years. Nothing. And simply because collaborationist Republicans wish to pretend it wasn’t so will not make it so.

Happy New Year. The New Resistance has begun.

Media’s Rigged Post – Election Coverage: The Real Assault On Democracy

So there’s this jewel of a headline from The Washington Post:

How Republicans are spinning their election fraud falsehoods now that many are acknowledging Biden’s win

The article, by Amber Phillips, says this of the hearing on the election held by Wisconsin’s Senator Ron Johnson in the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, bold print for emphasis supplied:

“There was fraud in this election,” said Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chair of the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, who called the controversial hearing and said Monday that he acknowledged Biden’s win. “I don’t have any doubt about that.”

That falsehood is that this election was not stolen.

It’s a nebulous argument, made without proof, that allows the receiver to make what they want of it. Coming a day after Biden won the electoral college, it seems like an attempt to bridge Trump and his most hardcore allies, who seem to truly want to believe in widespread election fraud, with the reality that there was none, and with shades in between.”

Hello? A “nebulous argument”?  Those who want to “believe in widespread election fraud, with the reality that there was none”???

This Post story is, obviously, a blatant falsehood.

There is an avalanche of evidence of fraud out there. But Ms. Phillips and a whole host of others across the liberal media are spreading the same baseless falsehoods. It is almost eerily the literal attempt by the liberal media to implement this George Orwell warning: “The people will believe what the media tells them they believe.” The Post and its media allies are trying to get Americans to believe the theft did not happen, that there was no widespread voter fraud. And, again, this is bunk.

The problem for the election stealers is that some 74 million Americans aren’t buying any of this bunk for a minute. And, Orwell again: “The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it.”

Which is to say, the Left cannot abide by the Trump supporters – like Senator Ron Johnson in this case – who are unafraid to stand up and tell the truth. That central truth is that, yes indeed, in fact, the 2020 election was stolen.

Over there at “Here Is The Evidence” there are literally hundreds of sourced examples of voter fraud.

Here at The Epoch Times is the headline on former Independent Counsel Ken Starr’s testimony to Johnson’s committee.

Pennsylvania ‘Flagrantly Violated’ Laws Ahead of Election, Starr Says

Starr goes into considerable detail on this situation. The story begins:

“Former independent counsel Ken Starr testified at a Senate panel hearing that Pennsylvania’s last-minute changes to election laws before the Nov. 3 election were flagrant violations.

‘The principle here is … [the] Constitution is very clear that it is the prerogative of state legislatures to determine what these rules and laws are,’ Starr told the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee on Dec. 16. ‘And that was, I must say, flagrantly violated in Pennsylvania, and perhaps elsewhere as well.’”

Then there was this, also at The Epoch Times:

Fraud Analyst Finds Average of 2 to 3 Percent Shift for Biden in Counties That Used Dominion

The story begins:

“A man who’s made a living developing fraud detection algorithms has discovered a curious phenomenon: Counties that started using Dominion Voting Systems machines have on average moved by 2 to 3 points to the Democrat presidential candidate from the Republican compared to counties that didn’t adopt the machines.
The difference persisted even after he controlled for a number of factors, including county population and various demographic characteristics.

‘I recommend we audit the machines,’ he concluded.”

Then there was this at Newsmax by Dick Morris:

Major New Revelation: Massive Vote Manipulation In Antrim, County Michigan

That story revolves around fishy results in Antrim County, a GOP stronghold in Michigan. Republicans appealed for an audit of the Dominion machines in the county when there appeared to be a serious number of Biden votes that were unusual in the Republican county.  Newsmax goes on to report this, bold print for emphasis supplied:

“So, Wisconsin State Judge Kevin Elsenheimer ordered a forensic audit of the vote tabulation that had been conducted by Dominion Voting Systems.

The audit was performed by the Allied Security Operations group, a Texas cybersecurity group that included experts that had worked with NASA, MIT, the Pentagon, the Secret Service, the Department of Homeland Security, and the CIA.

The audit results were released to public view, on the order of Judge Elsenheimer, two days ago — on Dec. 13, the day before Michigan’s electoral votes went to Biden.

Investigating the reason for the obvious errors in the vote tabulation, Allied Security reported that the mistakes were ‘caused by intentional errors in the system.’ It said, ‘these are not human errors’ this is definitely related to the software and software configurations resulting in error rates far beyond the thresholds listed in the guidelines.’

Antrim County Dominion machines recorded an error rate of 68%.”

I could go on and on and on with examples of voter fraud.

But the point here is the liberal media is intent on insisting that charges of fraud are “baseless.” Again, here is that headline from the Amber Phillips article in The Washington Post:

How Republicans are spinning their election fraud falsehoods now that many are acknowledging Biden’s win

Let’s be blunt here.

The only “election fraud falsehood” is what The Washington Post is pushing along with the liberal media.

That falsehood is that this election was not stolen.

It was stolen, with massive examples of voter fraud at hand to prove it.

And the attempt to re-write the history of this election, to rig the post-election coverage by The Post and others, is, to be blunt, bunk. It is a serious assault on democracy.

Say again: it is bunk.

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are TIME’s 2020 ‘Person of the Year’

It’s that time of year when TIME gifts us with their opinion of ‘person of the year.’ For 2020, TIME chose not one, but two people; two people who spent the majority of 2020 at each other’s throats saying how horrible the other one was. Nonetheless, the deadline must have caught them by surprise and they chose an alleged president and vice president-elect, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

In the article, there was one main focus from the get-go, appearing to be the only reason for choosing Biden and Harris: “President-elect Biden takes COVID-19 very, very seriously.” Then Biden was quoted, saying, “They told me we were gonna lose the campaign because of all this, remember?’ Biden says in a Dec. 7 interview, gesturing at the precautions from a brown leather chair in a room above the stage” of the Queen theater.

Biden’s official transition duties are taking place at the Queen Theater in Wilmington, Delaware, where “to get past the stage-door entrance” everyone needs a negative COVID-19 test and a specific N95 mask. “You have to promise not to eat or drink inside and answer a questionnaire about your recent whereabouts, and then comes the Secret Service protocol,” writes TIME.

TIME’s article, typical for liberal and mainstream media, praises Biden’s safety measures in an entirely empty theater instead of highlighting the reality that what it really is, is a sad symbol of the devastation our economy and way of life has suffered in 2020. Suffrage due to behavior by the Democratic party with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris at the helm of its leadership. Regardless, for all those reasons, TIME believes Biden and Harris deserve to be the ‘person of the year’ for positive reasons.

Biden, who “keeps a 16-ft. distance from everyone as he makes final preparations to take on the role of a lifetime” is applauded for “trusting his instincts and tuning out the naysayers.” Then comes the racial discussion; a guarantee from mainstream media which likes to discuss race and division under the pretense that it subdues race and division.

“Biden had the vision,” writes TIME. He “recognized what he could not offer on his own, what a 78-year-old white man could never provide: generational change, a fresh perspective, and an embodiment of America’s diversity. For that, he needed Kamala Harris.” Why? Race, of course. Harris is a “biracial child of immigrants…The Vice President has never before been a woman, or Black, or Asian American.”

Therefore, “The Democratic ticket was an unlikely partnership: forged in conflict and fused over Zoom, divided by generation, race and gender” adds TIME. “They come from different coasts, different ideologies, different Americas.”
