CNN, the news organization, published a piece accusing soldiers of possibly violating Department of Defense rules by asking President Donald Trump to sign Make America Great Again hats.
This isn’t a joke, this is a real “story” that CNN is pursuing, both in its web format and in its televised version. This is something that a CNN reporter actually wrote, and a CNN editor presumably signed off on and published.
Here are some paragraphs from the “report,” which was credited to Eli Watkins and TWO OTHER contributors, bringing the size of the reporting team on this piece to three individuals:
“President Donald Trump made his first visit to a war zone on Wednesday, receiving an enthusiastic reception from many US troops there — some of whom may have run afoul of military rules.
Video footage and the written report of Trump’s visit with service members in Iraq showed the President signing “Make America Great Again” hats and an embroidered patch that read “Trump 2020.”
But troops’ requests for the autographs could brush up against Department of Defense guidelines for political activities…
US military authorities in the coalition did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment.
Retired Rear Adm. John Kirby, a former Obama administration spokesperson and a CNN analyst, said on CNN’s “The Situation Room” on Wednesday that service members having Trump sign the items was inappropriate.
CNN passage ends
It’s hard to know exactly how to feel about this supposed news article. It is hard to wrap one’s mind around the staggering delusion, the complete and utter disconnect from reality and decency, exemplified here by CNN. It’s hard to even place oneself in the mindset of a CNN “reporter” who feels that it’s appropriate or interesting to do something like this.
Some people laughed when CNN blackmailed a Reddit user named Han A**hole Solo into hiding after he posted a pro-President Trump meme.
Some people merely shrugged when CNN showed up on the front lawn of a nice older lady who allegedly unwittingly shared Russian stuff on Facebook.
Some people turned a blind eye when Don Lemon got drunk on the air.
Now, we are here. At this point. CNN is trying to get active-duty military service members in trouble for asking President Trump to sign their MAGA hats.
That’s where we are now with CNN. There are no words for this new reality. There is only sadness.
I have made my thoughts on CNN known.
Reuters Calls Louisville Riots Where Cops Were Shot by Black Lives Matter Terrorists ‘Mostly Peaceful’
After cops were shot in Louisville during widespread Black Lives Matter rioting on Wednesday night, Reuters had the audacity to claim that the demonstrations were “mostly peaceful.”
Demonstrations in Louisville wore on past nightfall in defiance of a 9 p.m. curfew and remained mostly peaceful until several gunshots rang out in the midst of a skirmish between protesters and heavily armed police https://t.co/lvEd2XalpJ pic.twitter.com/L8GrPNrwCg

In the Reuters article linked in the tweet, the shooting of the police officers was buried in the article. Instead, editors focused on the race of the cops who returned fire to Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend after he shot at them while they were carrying out a lawful warrant at his home.
“Two white policemen who fired into the apartment of Breonna Taylor, a Black medical worker, will not be prosecuted for her death because their use of force was justified, and a third was charged with endangering her neighbors, Kentucky’s attorney general said on Wednesday,” they wrote.
Reuters buried the lead, opting to demonize the “heavily armed police” who sent the “crowd scurrying for cover,” even though it was the Black Lives Matter/ANTIFA terrorists who shot the law enforcement officers.
Big League Politics reported on the decision by Kentucky officials to charge one of the three officers involved in the shooting death of Taylor:
On September 23, 2020, Jefferson County Judge Annie O’Connell announced that fired detective Brett Hankinson will be indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for his actions on the night of Breonna Taylor’s death.
Hankison had previously admitted to shooting blindly. Some of those shots were fired into neighboring apartments not into Breonna Taylor’s where her boyfriend had opened fire onto police.
Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the other two officers involved in a serving a search warrant on the night that Taylor was killed, did not receive any charges.
The city of Louisville was placed under a state of emergency on September 22, when city officials shutdown a significant portion of the city perimeter to traffic. The majority of administrative building and other businesses were boarded up prior to the decision. Louisville has been rocked by riots related to Taylor’s death in March. These riots have been occurring for over 100 days and have resulted in a number of deaths and heated confrontations with law enforcement.
Starting on the night of September 23, there will be a 72-hour curfew in Louisville. The curfew will not apply to people partaking in essential travel, which includes work-related purposes or medical attention. Kentucky National Guard members will be deployed to the city for the purpose of maintaining public order…
Conservatives and nationalists should make it a point to promote healthy debate, while establishing a baseline of public security, to ensure that the country does not spiral further out of control in such times of instability.
