The fake news is in maximum overdrive, as the New York Times and the Washington Post are printing extremely deceptive headlines on the front pages of their Thursday papers regarding the rough transcript released describing President Donald Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The Times took the transcript out of context to make it look as damning against Trump as humanly possible, while running inaccurate sensationalist headlines to accompany the misleading excerpts.
In one headline article titled, “Witnesses Bolster Whistle-Blower Complaint,” the Times could only cite “potential presidential misconduct” that may have “created a national security risk.” They brought up this conjecture before noting the whistle-blower’s likely partisan political bias and the fact that the whistle-blower was “not in a position to directly listen to the call” before reporting it to authorities.
In another headline article titled, “President Denies Pressuring Leader of Ukraine to Investigate Biden,” the Times referred to the “favor” Trump asked of Zelensky in the lede without mentioning that it had to do with CrowdStrike, the cybersecurity firm that conducted the investigation into the DNC’s hacked servers without ever handing the servers over to the FBI. CrowdStrike was never even mentioned on the front page of the Times.
Shockingly, the Post was even more dishonest in their coverage of the transcript than the Times. The Bezos-funded lobbying rag mendaciously edited the transcript to make it look as if Trump’s “favor” pertained to Joe Biden instead of CrowdStrike. The headline, “Trump Offered Justice’s Aid for a Probe of Biden,” only added to the deception.
“President Trump repeatedly urged the Ukrainian president to investigate Joe Biden, one of his chief political rivals, and offered to enlist the U.S. attorney general in that effort while dangling the possibility of inviting the foreign leader to the White House, according to the rough transcript of the call released Wednesday,” a falsified lede on today’s front page of the Post reads, according to a CNN reporter.
The actual transcript shows that President Trump did not dangle the possibility of inviting Zelensky to the White House. It was just a matter of scheduling an inevitable meeting between the two leaders who share exemplary relations.
“Whenever you would like to come to the White House, feel free to call. Give us a date and we’ll work that out. I look forward to seeing you,” Trump told Zelensky.
“I look forward to seeing you in Washington,” Trump added.
The fake news is attempting to crucify President Trump for being a skilled diplomat while excusing former Vice President Joe Biden’s corrupt actions even while he boasts about them publicly.

President Trump gave the fake news a fair warning on Wednesday that they should drop the nonsense about his dealings with the Ukrainians, or they would further bury themselves.
Trump to the media last week on the "whistleblower" story: "You've had a very bad week, and this will be better than all of them … So keep playing it up because you're going to look really bad when it falls."

Unfortunately for the fake news, they never know when to stop. Their phony coverage of this non-scandal may be their biggest failure yet, and the Democrats – by launching an impeachment inquiry against Trump over it – will likely be joining them in the gutter.
FAKE NEWS DEBUNKED: ‘Zip Tie Guy’ at Capitol Protest Merely Picked up the Restraints From a Table
It was a mostly-peaceful protest by ANTIFA/BLM standards.
One insidious piece of fake news that circulated widely after the Jan. 6 siege on the U.S. Capitol is that there was a protester with zip ties who was among the individuals who dared to enter the holy grounds on that fateful day.
This was used by dishonest left-wing pundits and lying government officials to claim that the Trump supporters were engaged in an insurrection and a coup on Jan. 6.
Larry Brock, the retired Air Force officer who stormed the Senate chamber with zip ties, intended to "take hostages," a prosecutor said.
"He means to kidnap, restrain, perhaps try, perhaps execute members of the U.S. government." https://t.co/3fxCibQ6WA

A retired Air Force officer who was part of the mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol last week carried plastic zip-tie handcuffs because he intended “to take hostages,” prosecutor says in a Texas court. https://t.co/Iy0E7jnsrm

However, it has since come out that there was not any individual who brought zip ties to the U.S. Capitol protest to kidnap federal officials.
After deceiving the public for weeks, prosecutors were forced to admit in court that a man seen with the alleged zip ties had actually taken plastic handcuffs from police. While this may be a crime, it shows that there was no harmful intent from the protesters, most of whom demonstrated peacefully in and around the U.S. Capitol.
Eric Munchel, a U.S. Capitol protester who has been maligned falsely as the ‘Zip Tie Guy,’ reportedly grabbed the handcuffs off from a table. The new court filing explains what occurred.
“At one point, MUNCHEL spots plastic handcuffs on a table inside a hallway in the Capitol. MUNCHEL exclaims, ‘zipties. I need to get me some of them motherf—ers,” and grabs several white plastic handcuffs from on top of a cabinet,” the filing states, adding: “As MUNCHEL and [his mother, Lisa Eisenhart,] are attempting to leave, Eisenhart says words to the effect of, ‘Don’t carry the zip ties, just get ’em out of their hand.'”
It appears that Munchel and his mother, Lisa Eisenhart, were simply trying to prevent the plastic handcuffs from being used to detain patriots at the scene. As the case is heard in court, more details about the case will be heard, and the full truth can be determined.
Big League Politics has attempted to debunk a lot of the spin, which is coming from liberals and conservatives alike, surrounding the Jan. 6 Capitol siege:
Less than a week after the infamous U.S. Capitol siege took place, many conservative talking heads – perhaps in an attempt to protect President Donald Trump from the nuclear fall-out – are claiming that ANTIFA terrorists were responsible for the mayhem that ultimately resulted in five people dead…
However, investigative work by Big League Politics shows that there is no real evidence showing that this event was promulgated or set up by ANTIFA and the political establishment.
In fact, there is more evidence showing that this was a spontaneous uprising of angry patriots who have been pushed past the breaking point.
As a reporter who was embedded in the thick of the chaotic scene, I personally witnessed protesters singing “God Bless America” and “I’m Proud to be an American” while they were being tear gassed and flash banged by authorities.
Protesters were risking life and limb to climb up scaffolding to wave the American flag and boldly display their patriotism. Chants included “USA! USA!” and “We the People,” with constitutional iconography being found everywhere…
Does this seem like the optics of an ANTIFA rally, or a pro-American uprising? Big Tech entities are scrambling to censor footage of the rally so that they can control the narrative about what actually took place, so people cannot understand this was a pro-freedom revival in the vein of the Founding Fathers.
Additionally, much of the “evidence” showing that prominent protesters seen inside the Capitol were ANTIFA has already been debunked.
While the Capitol siege may have been seen as destructive and drastic, what is really destructive and drastic is the behavior committed by Congress selling ordinary Americans out for decades. The Capitol demonstrators ought to be punished as harshly as the ANTIFA thugs who attacked Trump’s inauguration in 2017 for their mostly peaceful protest.
