NPR Story About Fake News is Itself Fake News!

Compare how the story describes these two people:

…Frank Luntz, a Republican strategist who has helped the GOP choose the words it uses to sell its policies…

And:

As a linguist, University of California, Berkeley professor George Lakoff is one of the few people in the world who can truthfully say things like “I’ve studied the word ‘fake’ in some detail.”

Lakoff isn’t just a “linguist.” He does what Luntz does, but for the Democrats (only he’s much worse at it.) But the Fake News casts him as an independent expert, while Luntz is clearly pigeon-holed as a Republican. Fucking Fake News!

The President of the United States:

The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!

If this is all just a dream, no one wake me up.

The federal government is crawling with traitors determined to stop America from becoming Great Again. They need to be laid off, like this:

While Rex Tillerson is on his first overseas trip as Secretary of State, his aides laid off staff at the State Department on Thursday.

Much of seventh-floor staff, who work for the Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources and the Counselor offices, were told today that their services were no longer needed.

These staffers in particular are often the conduit between the secretary’s office to the country bureaus, where the regional expertise is centered. Inside the State Department, some officials fear that this is a politically-minded purge that cuts out much-needed expertise from the policy-making, rather than simply reorganizing the bureaucracy.

There are clear signals being sent that many key foreign policy portfolios will be controlled directly by the White House, rather than through the professional diplomats.

Yes!

Two-thirds of Germans want her out:

The most recent poll by YouGov published on Monday showed that 64 percent of Germans are in favour of having a new Chancellor after the election.

A significant 42 percent said that, after 12 years with Merkel in office, it is “definitely” time someone else took on the most important job in German politics. Meanwhile 22 percent said it was “probably” time for a fresh face.

Senior presidential advisor Stephen Miller, on vote fraud:

“I’ve actually having worked before on a campaign in New Hampshire and I can tell you, this issue of busing voters into New Hampshire is widely known by anyone who has worked in New Hampshire politics. It’s very real, it’s very serious… voter fraud is a serious problem in this country. You have millions of people who are registered in 2 states, people who are dead are registered to vote. 14% of non-citizens according to academic research at a minimum that are registered to vote which is an astounding statistic!”

Signs point to Yes:

Expect him to visit states where Democratic incumbents won their seats in 2012 with 55 percent or less of the popular vote. This would include Florida (Sen. Bill Nelson), Indiana (Sen. Joe Donnelly), Missouri (Sen. Claire McCaskill), Montana (Sen. Jon Tester), North Dakota (Sen. Heidi Heitkamp), Ohio (Sen. Sherrod Brown), Pennsylvania (Sen. Bob Casey), Virginia (Sen. Tim Kaine) and Wisconsin (Sen. Tammy Baldwin).

“Very likely.” Also:

The U.S. will move from a worldwide system of taxation to a territorial system, where American companies earning abroad may be repatriated without penalty. (There will be a one-time hit on corporate earnings now overseas of roughly 3 percent for fixed investment and 8 percent for cash. This will allow more than $2 trillion to return to the U.S. in a tsunami of domestic investment.

And:

This tax bill does not need and will probably not receive any votes from Democrats because the tax bill will be passed within “reconciliation,” allowing it to avoid filibuster. It needs only 50 Republican votes in the Senate, with the vice president casting the tie-breaking vote — and it should drop within the next three months.
