Jason Kessler Interview Regarding Charlottesville — For the record, we couldn’t care less if Charlottesville, Va. removes a statue of Robert E. Lee, but there appears to be another side to yesterday’s (Aug. 12) events that isn’t being reported, namely that the city failed to provide police presence and created circumstances in which violence was likely.
Here is an interview (language warning) with event organizer Jason Kessler in which he gives his side.
Greg Gianforte Body-slammed Partisan Not Journalist — Republican Greg Gianforte waltzed into Montana’s congressional seat, yesterday, mere hours after he was charged with misdemeanor assault for roughing up Ben Jacobs of the British-owned media publication The Guardian.
Some are decrying this as an assault on the free press. It is not. Jacobs is not a journalist. He is a partisan with a platform. His goal is not to provide the citizenry with accurate information but to advance an agenda and make obstacles to it look bad. This often means harassing the targets and distorting — to be polite — their positions.
It appears the citizenry, though, is catching on.
Americans hopefully also wake up to the reality that the battle is not about advancing a political party. It’s about advancing the idea that freedom is good; that freedom can only exist with courage, and that courage requires strong personal morals.
The special election was held to fill the seat vacated by Republcan Ryan Zinke who was appointed as Secretary of the Interior. Montana is a conservative state but not a knee-jerk Republican one. Its governor is Steve Bullock, a Democrat, who campaigned hard for Gianforte’s opponent, Rob Quist.

Seth Rich Story Ignored — Guess what story did not make the pages establishment media. That’s right, the revelation that murdered Democrat National Committee Voter Data Director Seth Rich was the Wikileaks source regarding dirty deeds by the Hillary Clinton campaign.
Lawrence O’Donnell Ultimate Conspiracy Nut — One-percenter establishment pundit and Comcast employee Lawrence O’Donnell posited last night (April 7) that Russian President Vladimir Putin orchestrated the April 4 chemical weapon attack by Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad so President Trump could respond and look good.
Dylan Byers Fake News — CNN’s Dylan Byers wrote a story implying conservative Fox host Sean Hannity pulled a gun on liberal colleague Juan Williams due to an on-air argument.
“Last year, after ending one of his many spirited on-air arguments with liberal contributor Juan Williams, Hannity pulled out a gun and pointed it directly at Williams, according to three sources with knowledge of the incident,” Byers said. “He even turned on the laser sight, causing a red dot to bob around on Williams’ body.”
Hannity and Williams both said that’s not what happened.
Fox News said that’s not what happened.
But Byers stands by his story. He has anonymous sources, he says. Not a police report — assault and terroristic threats are crimes in New York — not a person with a name, just anonymous sources.
And he expects to be believed. You know that an anonymous source can be a guy in a bar, right? Or it can be a liar with a grudge. It can even be a malicious fiction.
And this guy calls himself a journalist.
A generation educated to be shameless has entered the media. They are caught in a lie and they double down. They are absolutely clueless as to where this path leads. Karma happens.
