Lionel Nation - Why You Can Never Kill or Destroy the Fox News Channel
Quote:
Published on May 2, 2017

Lionel explores inter alia the drastic mistake that MSM are making in what they mistakenly believe to be the end of the Fox News Channel. Instead of forward thinking, retooling their brand, boning up on their news chops and being the best they can be in an epoch of Fake News accusations and the like, instead they think that somehow this mass exodus they anticipate will inure to their benefit. That they’ll naturally be the beneficiary of this audience migration. It’s insane, nuts and without merit. And in the mean time, instead of discussing the world and the potential for WWIII, instead they’re concerned with Bill Shine’s being sacked. Americans know not who Bill Shine is or Steve Bannon for that matter. Listen carefully and take notes if necessary.

Lionel Nation - Obamacare Replacement, Hill’s Blame Game, Prince Phil Says No Mas and the World Slides Into Insanity

Obamacare Replacement, Hill’s Blame Game, Prince Phil Says No Mas and the World Slides Into Insanity

The House on Thursday voted to repeal key parts of the Affordable Care Act and replace them with new provisions. The vote, which President Donald Trump was planning to tout as a YUGE victory, sends the Republican-sponsored bill to gut Obamacare to the Senate for consideration. Here we go.

Then Hillary appeared to offer up a rather mixed message about her loss in the 2016 presidential election to Trump, saying she was personally responsible — all the while also blaming the FBI director and Wikileaks. How’s that?

"I take absolute personal responsibility," Clinton told CNN's Christiane Amanpour at the Women for Women (?) International event. "I was the candidate; I was the person on the ballot." But just a couple minutes later, bang! Clinton said she "had a very strong assessment" that she was on the path to winning, until FBI Director James Comey publicly announced he might reopen the investigation into her use of a personal email server when she was secretary of State.

Then after a frenzied and ballyhooed, middle-of-the-night scramble by the global news media for strategic real estate outside Buckingham Palace and an hourslong wait in the cold, the much-anticipated announcement finally came: A 95-year-old man named Phil was retiring. From what, who knows?

RT America - Barrett Brown: I'll leave 'moral vacuum' of US after probation ‒ EXCLUSIVE
Quote:
Published on May 4, 2017

Journalist Barrett Brown was arrested while on parole after serving a four-year prison term for reporting on corporate espionage against American activists. The arrest came after Brown refused to fill out a form prior to giving media interviews, a requirement he says isn't included in a Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) program statement on media contact. Brown tells RT America's Anya Parampil that he stayed in jail for four days until his lawyer threatened BOP with a lawsuit at which point he was then released "without reason."

Lionel Nation - Who'll Win the French Elections, War With North Korea, Obamacare Repeal, Trump and Death of MSM News
Quote:
Published on May 6, 2017

It’s impossible to explain all that you’ve missed this week as to the aforementioned subjects. Let’s face it, if you depend upon the media, you’re lost. Caleb Maupin — journalist, author, historian — and I dissect what you absolutely have to know to survive and what’s been kept from you by the otiose mainstream media.

What’s the truth as to North Korea? Is Kim Jong-un insane, a madman? Why have the MSM been in lockstep declaring his insanity? Who won WWII, especially as to defeating the Nazis? What should America know about the French elections and why does it matter?

Hard Bastard - Speculating About History Is Not Grounds For Impeachment. Trump Derangement Syndrome Continues
Quote:
Published on May 6, 2017

The legacy media is desperately trying to sell the idea that Donald Trump is mentally ill and should be impeached. Even former credible historians like David Brinkley have decided to sell out and promote this propaganda. This is not an issue of like or dislike of Trump. This is about a sitting president possibly being impeached over manufactured lies. That would fundamentally change the fabric of the nation and take elections away from the people. It already happened once with Clinton V Sanders.

(I recorded this before my defense of HA was censored but I think its a good idea to post it)

In this video I am giving my thoughts on if its possible for the left and the right to unite because we agree who our enemies are. Corporate/Establishment/Legacy Media and corrupt politicians. I feature several credible progressive channels which I will list shortly, but I wanted to get this video out as I dont know how much longer my channel will be around.

I am preaching to the choir, but this shows how slimy the DNC and how reprehensible Clinton is. It also confirms that us lowly peasants are held to a different standard when it comes to the law. I am sure if she wasn't such a high profile bitch, she would be on the hot seat and facing even more consequences for her private email servers that only had 'yoga' emails.

Personally, I am not at all prepared to "sell Hillary Rodham Clinton down the river!"

I believe that she is and was the faithful spouse of William Jefferson Clinton, who helped him win (and, re-win) the White House ... indeed, in each and every step of their(!) political career ... and who was a priceless component of that Administration even when classic Washington, DC thinking refused to consider that "the First Lady" had a brain. (Although she was an intellectual property attorney.) The two of them acted as an unspokenly-tight team, and they still do. Even when Bill was confronted by a blackmailer, their marriage could not be broken. (And both of them shielded their daughter.)

I likewise believe that she served the State of New York honorably and well in the Senate, and that she likewise served the country as Secretary of State with honor. I believe that she would serve any other future Office that she held, with the same honor.

I dismiss out-of-hand the thought that she betrayed her Country's secrets through "e-mail servers." Quite frankly: "the entire Department of State exists to safeguard the secret dealings of the Secretary," and it is laughable to imagine any of these professionals allowing any such scenario. To suggest any such thing is very close to accusing them of treason. "How absurd!"

If you are The Secretary of State of the United States, then you are tasked with the most-private diplomatic relationships between the USA and every other country on Earth. The need for secrecy is palpable. Therefore, it pervades every single dealing in the Department of State. "They live in it. They die in it. They swim in it." Most of all the Secretary!

Why should the SOSUS need to have any concern at all as to how State Secrets are safeguarded? The Officeholder may simply assume that such things are being taken care of, by the many thousands of persons [with "above Top Secret™ clearances" ...] who are tasked to take care of such things. And I simply will not entertain the thought that any of these career professionals: betrayed their country.

Granted, she lost the 2016 election. But she has served the United States of America honorably throughout her career – as has her husband – and it would never be in her to betray it, as she has now so-often been accused.

Again, "I will have nothing of it."

Her career is far from over. She would have performed the Office of the President with honor, and ... "2020 is another year!" (No, I don't think she'd win.)

Although "yes, this is politics," I feel that we are dead wrong(!) to throw her under the bus.
