Radio Host and American patriot Alex Jones has been shamed, chastised, and labeled a “conspiracy theorist” for suggesting far less than what a liberal National Public Radio guest said on Friday.
Liza Goitein, a purported “expert on emergency powers” at the leftist Brennan Center for Justice, named for Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan, joined NPR’s “All Things Considered,” funded by your tax dollars, to scaremonger about President Donald J. Trump’s state of emergency declaration.
Friday’s NPR show certainly lived up to its name.
“When the president declares a national emergency, he has access to powers contained in more than a hundred different laws that Congress has passed over the decades. And those laws basically represent Congress’s best guess as to powers that the president might need in an emergency, in a situation where Congress didn’t have time to act,” Goitein explained.
Shortly thereafter, the interview went off the rails.
“But there are powers here that would allow the president to shut down communications facilities, radio stations, to freeze Americans’ bank accounts and seize their assets,” she said. “There are powers that allow the president, believe it or not, to suspend the prohibition on government testing of chemical weapons and biological agents on unwitting human subjects. So it’s really extraordinary what some of these powers would allow.”
Obviously, anyone right-of-center would be crucified by the media for floating such a wild conspiracy theory. At no point during the interview did Goitein manage to explain that President Barack H. Obama declared 13 national emergencies – 11 of which are still active – and that there are currently 31 active national emergencies in effect from past presidents. The NPR host did not bother to bring that up, either.
Shockingly, none have resulted in the federal government testing chemical weapons on its citizens.

Media Lied: President Trump Did Not Claim Operation Desert Storm Occurred During the Vietnam War
The corporate media has been peddling an edited clip.
The mainstream media falsely reported that President Donald Trump confused the setting of ‘Operation Desert Storm,’ a military name for the 1990 Gulf War, during a July 4th speech on the White House lawn on Sunday. The media accused President Trump of falsely stating that Desert Storm was a military operation that took place during the Vietnam War.
Liberals associated with political organizations such as the Lincoln Project and media groups such as PoliticusUSA displayed edited video clips and made dishonest claims that the President had conflated Operation Desert Storm and the Vietnam war, hoping to score a partisan political point.
Trump just said we fought Operation Desert Storm in the jungles of Vietnam, but please tell us again which Presidential candidate lacks cognitive functions.

In contrast to the claims of partisan liberals, President Trump clearly drew a distinction between combat operations in Vietnam and in Kuwait in 1990, having referred to the events in successive fashion.

Other mainstream media pundits and journalists shared claims that Trump had made the mistake, going on to delete their false claims after the erroneous nature of the claim became apparent on social media. Twitter ultimately ended up labeling the claims that the President conflated the two as “manipulated media,” possibly hoping to score credibility with conservatives by executing the bare minimum of content moderation as the platform rampantly censors the free speech of President Trump, conservatives, and right-wingers.
A reporter from MSNBC is yet to delete her tweet falsely accusing the President of confusing Desert Storm and Vietnam, even after the clip she originally retweeted has been delete in acknowledgment of its dishonesty.
Operation Desert Storm…in the jungles of…Vietnam. https://t.co/QEr698vhJ4
