Obama Tweets: ‘Michelle and I Are So Inspired by All the Young People’ Marching

Former President Barack Obama tweeted a message to the anti-Second Amendment activists marching all around the country, saying that he and Michelle are “so inspired” and that “nothing can stand in the way of millions of voices calling for change.”

“Michelle and I are so inspired by all the young people who made today’s marches happen,” Obama tweeted. “Keep at it. You’re leading us forward. Nothing can stand in the way of millions of voices calling for change”:

During Obama’s first term in office, Democrats held the House and a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate. The former president and the Democrats could have passed any legislation they wanted. They did nothing about guns.

It was only during his second term, when Republicans controlled both chambers of Congress, that Obama began to demand gun control.

On several occasions, both he and Hillary Clinton have praised the idea of national gun confiscation by pointing to Australia’s continent-wide forced gun buyback program as an ideal. Mainstream media fact checkers, like the far-left Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler, continue to try and cover this fact up.

In June of 2014, Obama said:

Couple of decades ago, Australia had a mass shooting, similar to Columbine or Newtown. And Australia just said, well, that’s it, we’re not doing, we’re not seeing that again, and basically imposed very severe, tough gun laws, and they haven’t had a mass shooting since. Our levels of gun violence are off the charts. There’s no advanced, developed country that would put up with this.

In October of 2015, while running for president, Hillary Clinton said:

You know, Australia’s a good example, Canada’s a good example, [and] the UK’s a good example. Why? Because each of them had mass killings, Australia had a huge mass killing about 20 or 25 years ago. Canada did as well, so did the UK. In reaction, they passed much stricter gun laws. In the Australian example, as I recall, that was a buyback program. The Australian government as part of trying to clamp down on the availability of … weapons offered a good price for buying hundreds of thousands of guns and basically clamped down going forward, in terms of having more of a background check approach – more of a permitting approach.

Nolte: Trump Delivers Peace and Prosperity as Chicken Little Media Freak Out — Again

Of course, what happens in the White House is news. Everything involving a U.S. president is news. This includes personnel changes, and we have covered those here at Breitbart. What is beyond absurd, though, what is so far out of touch with mainstream America, are the media’s unrelenting obsession and constant freakout over castle intrigue.

Because, honestly, out here in the real world, no one gives a hi-ho-hearty damn about who is up/down/in/out in the West Wing. Even if we believe the news reports (and smart people mostly do not), the machinations, gossip, innuendo, melodrama, and whisper campaigns have no effect whatsoever on us.

And we certainly do not judge how well the ship of state is being steered based on what we are told by a sinking media institution with a 22 percent approval rating.

About two years ago, it happened to me at the dump. Even in the middle of an intense workweek during an intense presidential campaign, the garbage must be dealt with. And so, with my brain completely fried by cable news and social media, and as I was unloading all that trash, I realized that no one else unloading their trash cared at all about My World. They were just living their lives.

Later that week, the same thing happened at Walmart and Lowe’s Hardware and church, the place where I get what is left of my hair cut…No one cared about My World because My World was not even a world. It was a bubble generated by the aforementioned cable news and social media.

No joke, my own personal Road to Damascus moment happened at a landfill. That was when I began to realize that the media do not reflect or even report on reality, but rather attempt to manufacture a reality to suit a political agenda, which is exactly what is happening now. (That was also when I removed that pipeline of poison from my home by canceling my cable TV.)

The chasm between the media and the real world grew a little wider last week.

In their never-ending effort to trip up Trump, 500 left-wing pundits-disguised-as-journalists coordinated all of their focus on…White House personnel issues. Things must be going awfully well in the world when the media are allowed to enjoy the luxury of gossiping non-stop about what is happening in the human resources department.

Meanwhile, out here in the Real World, all we can see is that things are at long last looking up.

Wages up are, taxes are down, decent jobs are being created, optimism has returned, the stock market is headed in the right direction, ISIS is shattered, we are not starting any stupid wars, and even as the media manufacture one hurricane after another, our president keeps right on keeping on.

Last week is a perfect example. While the media were telling us it was time to freak out because someone named Hicks resigned (no offense, but who?), Trump was keeping another big campaign promise, breaking another economic record (in a good way), actively engaged in seeking a real solution to these school shootings, doing presidential things like attending the funeral of Rev. Billy Graham, and using his social media accounts to speak directly to us — to keep us up to date, not only with what he is doing, but with his thought process.

While Trump is Steady Freddie, while he keeps his promises (at a record level), and fixes the economy, the only institution that is out of control, frenzied, and neurotic, is the media. But these days, everything destabilizes and panics the media. This Fourth Estate of ours, which has no poise, grace, or gravitas, can keep right on pushing that panic button; no one with half a brain is falling for it.

While Chicken Little assures us the sky is falling, out here in Real America, and for the first time since September 10, 2001, all we see is the long overdue return of peace and prosperity.

The media should think about taking out their trash. Because we are just not listening anymore…

And this is why Trump is moving his re-election resources to Facebook.

Fake News: CNN’s Don Lemon Falsely Claims Fox News Did Not Cover Hope Hicks Resignation

CNN’s well-documented and ongoing fake news crisis revealed itself again Wednesday night when anchor Don Lemon misinformed his viewers with the false claim Fox News had not reported on the resignation of Hope Hicks.

Prior to Lemon’s wildly false claim, Fox had already covered the resignation of the White House communications director on at least three occasions. Nevertheless, the far-left Lemon closed a panel discussion on his basement-rated program with this fake news.

Referring to Fox News as “Trump TV,” Lemon said,

I was sitting in my office and was watching all the news channels, right — Trump TV or state-run TV, they’re not even reporting this. So, Trump supporters, they don’t even know about these stories, it doesn’t even register, that’s the amazing thing.

What is so remarkable about this statement is not just that it is not true, but that Lemon felt comfortable being so irresponsible and reckless while speaking live on the air. He is hurling a public accusation based only on his own experience while channel surfing. He has no idea what he missed, but rather than have a staffer double check to ensure his perception is correct, he feels perfectly safe saying something on the CNN  air that might not be true.

This moment is indicative of CNN’s collapse, of how the last-place cable channel no longer has or enforces any kind of editorial standards.

Last month, while Fox News and MSNBC averaged 2.8 million and 1.8 million primetime viewers, respectively, CNN could not even eke out even a million viewers.

Moreover, when compared to last year, while MSNBC grew its primetime audience and Fox only lost -3 percent of viewers, CNN lost a breathtaking -16 percent of its primetime viewers and -19 percent of its total day viewers.

Additionally, if you look at when the far-left CNN is able to create headlines, it is only when the anti-Trump network’s gaffes, lies, fake news, hysteria, and train wrecks occur — like the train wreck that was that anti-gun town hall. Without those train wrecks, had CNN not devolved into a national laughingstock, no one would even be talking about CNN.

And if CNN is willing to be so reckless and dishonest about little things like this, imagine the lengths CNN will go to as a means to deceive or cover up big, important things.

And so, for the first time since the last time he was caught spreading fake news, the otherwise non-entity that is Don Lemon has created headlines — but only ones that again prove that he and his disgraced employer are both discredited jokes.

February Ratings: Fox News and Sean Hannity on Top — CNN and Chris Cuomo in Freefall

With an average of 3.3 million viewers, Fox News anchor Sean Hannity extends his status as the King of Cable News to five months, reports Forbes.

In second place is Fox’s Tucker Carlson, who averaged 3.144 million viewers.

Next up is the now-deposed Rachel Maddow, whose MSNBC show was number one in 2017. She is now in third place with 2.874 million average viewers.

Of every basic cable channel, including ESPN, USA, TNT, etc., Fox News is the most-watched and has been for 20 straight months.

Overall, Fox averaged a whopping 2.8 million viewers during primetime and only lost -3 percent of viewers when compared to February of last year.

CNN, on the other hand, is collapsing.

The far-left cable channel averaged only a measly 979,000 primetime viewers, a catastrophic drop of -16 percent when compared to last year. The anti-Trump network lost a whopping -19 percent of its total day viewers.

With its ongoing and well-documented fake news crisis, Democrats appear to be fleeing in droves from the basement-rated CNN, choosing instead to watch MSNBC. CNN’s entire foundation is based on the existential lie that it is an unbiased and objective news outlet. MSNBC is not only not as hysterically far left as CNN, it does not lie about its biases. And so, MSNBC captured nearly twice as many primetime viewers as CNN (1.805 million) and grew its audience by slightly better margins then CNN’s double-digit shrinkage.

Nevertheless, Fox News’s 2.8 million primetime viewers almost perfectly equals the combined viewership of CNN and MSNBC.

The news gets even worse for the disgraced CNN when you look at the individual shows. Not a single CNN program ranks in the top 20. Anderson Cooper finally pops up at #24.

And waaaaaay at the bottom is Chris Cuomo’s widely-ridiculed morning  show New Day. Other than MSNBC’s and CNN’s super-early 5am programs, New Day is the least watched program of the three major cable news networks, coming in at a humiliating #42 with only 607,000 total viewers.

Even MSNBC’s Morning Joe wallops Fredo, with 1.061 million viewers.

Fox and Friend almost wallops them both combined with 1.6 million viewers.

Additionally, Anderson Cooper was the only CNN anchor able to barely squeak over a million average viewers (1.077 million). No one else at CNN could even do that.

CNN’s credibility death spiral is having a devastating effect on its ratings.

Report: Trump Jumped Out of Limo to Stop Mugging in 1991

According to a New York Daily News report dated November 20, 1991, when he spotted a “big guy with a big bat” beating on another guy, Donald Trump told his limousine driver to pull over. Witnesses told the paper,  that “with [then-girlfriend] Marla Maples tugging at his arm to try to stop him, [Trump] leaped from his black stretch limousine Monday evening during the Manhattan assault.”

The Manhattan billionaire, who was 45 at the time, told the story from there. “The guy with the bat looked at me, and I said, “Look, you’ve gotta stop this. Put down the bat. I guess he recognized me because he said, ‘Mr. Trump, I didn’t do anything wrong.’ I said, ‘How could you not do anything wrong when you’re whacking a guy with a bat?’ Then he ran away.”

Trump added that he saw the mugger deliver “five or six good whacks” before he put a stop to it.

Witness accounts varied. One young woman says Trump only got out of his limo only to see what was going on after it had already happened and the mugger was long gone.

Another witness, though, backed The Donald’s account. “All of a sudden, a big long limousine pulls up on an angle, and Donald Trump pops out with the blond, too,” the unnamed witness said. “There was a guy with a bat, hitting a guy over the head, and Trump yelled, ‘Put that bat down. What are you doing?’ The guy dropped the bat, came over and started talking to him.”

Trump, who was on his way to a Paula Abdul concert, said that he only left the scene when he knew an ambulance was on the way and saw that the victim was being treated by a witness who appeared to be a doctor.

At the time, there was no police report filed about the attack.

The reporter, James Rosen, does not disclose how he learned of the incident. Trump said he was surprised anyone heard about it. “I’m not looking to play this thing up,” Trump told Rosen. “I’m surprised you found out about it.”

Rosen also reports that “Trump was at first reluctant to discuss his daredevil deed, but then he warmed to the task.”

Trump’s famous ability to manipulate the New York press should always be kept in mind.

New York in the pre-Giuliani days of 1991 was not the New York of today, the New York that looks like a Hollywood backlot dressed for a romcom. No, in 1991, New York looked like this and the statistics looked like this. Just a few weeks earlier, in fact, Trump’s own mother had been mugged before a bystander named Lawrence Herbert chased the thug away.

A full 27 years later, this story surfaced online after the media roundly mocked President Trump over his claim that, unlike the local deputies at the scene, he would not have stood outside as innocent children were being massacred at a school in Parkland, Florida.

CNN’s anti-Trump pundit, Jake Tapper, who is himself using traumatized children as human shields to hide from the widespread criticism of his mishandling of last week’s anti-gun town hall, angrily lashed out at Trump over the school shooting comments. Tapper has yet to comment on this 1991 report.

In its own snarky attack on Trump, the far-left Washington Post also failed to inform its readers about this report of Trump stopping a mugging.

Another Media Fail: Only 24% Want Oprah Winfrey to Run for President

Only 24 percent of American voters want Oprah Winfrey to run for president, according to a Morning Consult poll of some 2,000 registered voters. When broken down by party affiliation, only 38 percent of Democrats want her to run.

In the wake of her speech at the Golden Globes last Sunday, Hollywood and the elitist media — two left-wing  institutions currently facing mushrooming sexual misconduct scandals —  spent a full week attempting to convince the public that Winfrey would be a perfect choice to challenge Trump for re-election in 2020.

Naturally, the far-left CNN was the most exuberant. But it was all fake news, all propaganda spewed from the provincial bubble of Hollywood and media…

On top of not even garnering the support of a quarter of American voters, in worse news for an elitist media rapidly losing its moral authority and ability to move public opinion, a solid majority of 59 percent do not want Winfrey to run.

The news gets even worse when Winfrey is matched directly with Trump, who she only tops by a measly two points, 40 to 38 percent.

After years of adoring press coverage and a full week of the media celebrating and promoting her presidential prospects, Oprah has only managed to pull ahead of Trump within the margin of error — and Trump is the guy the media have been smearing and trolling for nearly two years now. This is a terrible showing for Oprah.

On top of that, Oprah is at her most pristine politically. Because the media have even gone so far as to cover up her indefensible Swiss race hoax, Winfrey is currently unblemished in the political arena, a status she loses, though, the moment she decides to step into the arena.

The Morning Consult poll also showed that the media’s obvious desire to see Trump challenged by a woman of color is facing headwinds with Democrat voters who prefer (by wide margins) two very old white guys over the billionaire mogul: former Vice President Joe Biden (54 to 31 percent) and Senator Bernie Sanders (46 to 37 percent).

While the week is not yet over, this is the third embarrassing setback for the national media in just a few days.

On Wednesday, a poll clearly showed that the public is waking up to months of media lies about the GOP tax bill signed into office by Trump last month. Even before American workers have had a chance to see their own personal tax cut in next month’s pay checks, already a plurality support the bill — a massive turnaround thanks to the tax cut already inspiring some 194 companies to offer substantial bonuses and pay raises to some two million employees.

Also, on Monday, after weeks of flat-out lies and wild-eyed conspiracy theories about Trump’s mental health, the White House doctor confirmed that the president scored a perfect 30-for-30 on a difficult and widely respected mental acuity test. As a result, the media was again was exposed as serial betrayers of the public trust.
