Observer reporter Davis Richardson published a piece Thursday headlined “How The New Right Media Pushes Extremism Dangerously Into The Mainstream.”
The article attacks New Right publications including Gateway Pundit and Infowars and journalists Mike Cernovich, Jack Posobiec, and Alex Jones to craft the narrative that New Media is somehow dangerous. Richardson also devotes special attention to Big League Politics, writing:
“Fringe outlets led by InfoWars, Gateway Pundit and Big League Politics—a far-right website started by Howley following Trump’s election—trafficked fake news into the mainstream while galvanizing a network of conspiracy theorists who once anonymously dominated 4chan message boards.”
But Davis Richardson forgot to mention something in his article. Oh yeah, he wrote for Big League Politics. In fact, he did a whole reporting assignment for us from a Jill Stein lecture at Yale University. Life comes at you fast.
As editor in chief of Big League Politics, I make a special point to give reporters a shot at getting bylines with us, so long as they’re hardworking, respectful of everyone on staff, and they tell the truth. I gave Davis Richardson the chance to get another clip for his portfolio so that he could get a reporting job. I suppose he got one with Observer, which is based in New York and was owned by Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, who is said to still have an editorial presence there.
Davis’ article didn’t bother me. It was silly mainstream-media claptrap. If CNN and the Washington Post did not fail so spectacularly at what they purport to do, then alternative media would not be so popular. The demand is there because there is a need to push back against the agenda-oriented mainstream press. And Davis Richardson did not provide a single example of us getting a story wrong…ever. Because we haven’t.
But Davis deciding to call us “fake news,” when he used my website to feature his writing and conceivably help him get a job, is pretty low.
Mr. Kushner should probably be on the lookout for a hit piece on Observer in a few months.

America Has 40 Percent Of The World’s Guns
America possesses 40 percent of all of the guns in the world, according to a newly published study.
VOA News reports: “In a report released Monday, the Geneva-based Small Arms Survey says Americans own 393 million firearms more than the combined total owned in the survey’s other top 25 countries. The report comprises data collected during the past decade.By comparison, India and China, which each have populations of about 1.3 billion people, came in second and third place respectively, with 71 million and 49.7 million civilian-owned guns.”
If it was not obvious to you already, America is the greatest country in the history of the world.
But gun control zealots are trying to make America significantly less great. As seen in Britain — where Tommy Robinson is being held as a political prisoner — gun control always impedes liberty.
Gun controllers just don’t seem to quit.
Illinois Democrats in both the U.S. House and Senate have just introduced a bill that would establish a federal firearms licensing system.
The Blair Holt Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act would put the clamps on unlicensed gun ownership, while also mandating that people possess a valid firearms license when transferring weapons. On top of that, it requires a universal background check for all firearms purchases and transfers.
Representative Bobby Rush (D-IL), who introduced the House version of this bill, said, “Americans are demanding that Congress take real action to prevent gun violence and we must address this issue head on and do our part to prevent the senseless mass killings and shooting deaths in cities across this nation.
House Republicans Stupidly Try To Cut Medicare, Social Security In Election Year
House Republicans continue to advocate against their own political interests, pushing a new budget bill that would make grave cuts to Medicare and Social Security in this 2018 midterm election year.
While the congressional Republicans believe their bill will balance the budget in nine years, it would also inflame the many middle-aged people and senior citizens who actually vote Republican. It is unclear if House Republican leadership actually cares at all about the people who vote for them, which gives the bill some hope of passing.
ThinkAdvisor reports: “The GOP’s Budget for a Brighter American Future seeks to, over the next decade, save $5.4 trillion on mandatory programs — including Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid — and includes reconciliation instructions for 11 House authorizing committees to find at least $302 billion in deficit reduction. Reconciliation allows expedited passage of certain budgetary legislation on spending, revenues and the federal debt limit with a simple majority vote in both the House (218 votes) and Senate (51 votes). The House Budget Committee plans to start marking up the legislation on Wednesday and Thursday, and pass it out of committee. A vote by the full House could come next week.”
Fortunately, President Donald Trump has no plans to cut Social Security or Medicare, as he stressed on the campaign trail. Trump scored major points against his Republican opponents in the Wisconsin primary by vowing, “You’ll get your Social Security cut by Cruz or Kasich.” Trump carried that message to primary wins in New York and Indiana, sealing his win.
Paul Ryan, the collectivist, wants to cut Social Security and Medicare. In fact, he ran an entire national vice-presidential campaign on that politically disastrous premise, which was the most mind-bogglingly stupid platform in an election ever.
Ryan then turned around and passed $1 trillion-plus omnibus bills as House Speaker that fund Planned Parenthood and all kinds of other damaging or meaningless things. Why does the government seem dead-set on giving welfare benefits to illegal aliens and funding abortion, but then claiming that senior citizens who have paid into the system for years suddenly have to lose their own government checks?
Until Republicans actually get serious about cutting federal spending, their designs on Medicare and Social Security do absolutely nothing to solve our debt-ridden financial situation, they merely take money out of the pockets of people who are already getting disenfranchised by our government in every conceivable sense.
The Swamp makes no sense.
Pat Robertson: It’s Time For Congress To Put The Screws in the Justice Department
Pat Robertson did an incredible segment on The 700 Club calling for Peter Strzok and Lisa Page to be fired from the Federal Bureau of Investigation for their conduct in running an anti-Trump operation for James Comey and Andrew McCabe, who both operated under Barack Obama as members of the White House High Value Intelligence Group.
Was Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, conspiring with this motley crew?
“Rosenstein was doing just that,” Pat Robertson says.
“It’s time for the U.S. Congress to just put the screws in the Justice Department and we are going to impeach you,” Robertson said in his segment.
