Joe Biden wrongly stated 6,114 military service members died from COVID-19 — he was off by 6,107

0

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden recently overstated by massive proportions the number of U.S. military service members who have died as a result of the coronavirus.

Speaking at a campaign rally Wednesday in Warren, Michigan, Biden said, “Military COVID infected: 118,984. Military COVID deaths: 6,114. Folks, every one of these lives mattered.”

But according to the Department of Defense’s website, as of Wednesday, the number of service men and women who have died from the virus was seven meaning the former vice president was off by 6,107.

Biden also inflated the number of military infections by a whopping 79,000.

His statement was so wildly inaccurate that even CNN had to fact-check the number:

This is wrong — and not just by a little. Biden overstated the number of military Covid deaths by 6,107 and infections by nearly 79,000. There have been seven deaths in the military due to Covid-19 and 40,026 cases as of September 9, according to the Defense Department.

Before making the statement, Biden told the audience that he carries a schedule with him that shows updated figures for the number of U.S. troops lost or wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan.

He had apparently given the schedule away but after retrieving it from a staffer, the nominee began reading the numbers.

A Biden campaign aide reportedly told CNN later that Biden had misspoke by accidentally reading the numbers of Michigan coronavirus deaths and infections instead of the military numbers.

That seems likely enough, yet nevertheless, CNN national security correspondent Holmes Lybrand noted that even those figures don’t quite match up.

“The Johns Hopkins coronavirus tracker reports 6,811 deaths from the virus in Michigan, not 6,114. And the number of cases in the state, according to Hopkins, is 118,902,” Lybrand wrote.

Chris Cuomo reportedly coached Michael Cohen ahead of 2018 appearance, according to leaked audio

0

CNN’s Chris Cuomo reportedly coached former Trump attorney Michael Cohen ahead of a 2018 appearance on the network.

What are the details?

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson debuted a recording during Wednesday’s broadcast of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” allegedly of a portion of a 2018 conversation between Cuomo and Cohen.

As highlighted by the Daily Caller, the recording appeared to feature the CNN host preparing Cohen for a 2018 appearance on the network, providing “guidance” — reportedly at the request of Cohen — “as a friend more than anything.”

At the time, Cohen was reportedly receiving vast criticism over alleged hush money for adult film actress Stormy Daniels, as well as former Playboy model Karen McDougal. Cohen was reportedly concerned over any questions he might be forced to field about such payments, and allegedly asked Cuomo “to tell him what to say.”

Ahead of Cohen’s interview with Cuomo, the CNN anchor directed the ex-Trump attorney to say, “‘I did it for [Donald Trump].'”

“You will be asked that, and you can say, ‘I did it for [Donald Trump],'” Cuomo can be heard telling Cohen on the recording. “And to the question of the motive … the response would have to be, ‘You can speculate as to why you think I did it all day long, but the only answer is my answer, and I just told you why I did it. You don’t get to speculate, because if you can’t prove that I got paid back by Trump or the campaign, it is slander and defamation for you to say that I did.'”

Of the recording, Carlson added, “[I]t’s not clear that Cohen understood what he was saying. On the tape, some of Michael Cohen’s responses to Chris Cuomo seem disjointed. Others sound like he’s grunting. Perhaps to make it easier for Cohen to follow, Chris Cuomo began acting out both sides of the exchange: He acted out the news anchor’s question, and then he acted out Cohen’s scripted response to that question. The conversation devolved into a kind of one-man play, with Chris Cuomo as the performer, and Michael Cohen as the audience.”

On the recording, Cuomo also can be heard telling Cohen, “I think the way this conversation goes is almost exactly the way we’re having it right now. Which is where I say, ‘This looks shady,’ and you say, ‘It looks shady to you because you’re coming in with a specific intention.'”

Cuomo, acting as “interviewer,” asked, “Why didn’t you let it all come out and let the people decide?” He then guided Cohen to respond, “‘Because it’s not a fair process. They wouldn’t have had any of the counter facts and they would have had her, you know, if she was somehow convinced to do it and people decided to believe that her denials were somehow less true than her admissions. I didn’t want to play that game. Everything was tilted against Mr. Trump'”

Carlson concluded, “Chris Cuomo offers that help to Michael Cohen unsolicited. And honestly, it’s a lot more than most news anchors would do for a guest, we can tell you firsthand. Did Chris Cuomo call his brother — the governor of New York — on behalf of Michael Cohen? We don’t know the answer to that. We do know that whatever Chris Cuomo did, it didn’t work. In the end, Michael Cohen went to prison anyway. But Chris Cuomo did try. Even back then, Cuomo understood that Michael Cohen could be useful some day. And indeed, Michael Cohen definitely has been useful. Tonight, two months before the election, Michael Cohen is appearing CNN in primetime, to make the case against Donald Trump. In other words, in the end, it all paid off.”

What did Cohen say?

Cohen issued a statement on such a recording earlier in September, insisting that he did not leak the audio to Fox News.

“I did not give this recording or authorization for its use to @foxnews or anyone,” he wrote. “@POTUS and cronies violated my First amendment rights and now this; all to discredit me and my book. What’s next?”

Fox News reported that it reached out CNN for a statement on the matter but did not receive a response.

TheBlaze has also reached out to a spokesperson for Cuomo and the network, but did not receive a response in time for publication.

Adam Schiff welcomes whistleblower complaint against Trump admin with open arms despite last month accusing said whistleblower of lying to Congress

0

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) promised Wednesday the immediate launch of an investigation into whistleblower allegations that senior Trump administration officials censored information on intelligence reports that “made President Trump look bad.”

Among the information allegedly censored were details regarding the rising threat of white supremacism and Russia’s attempt to interfere in the 2020 election, according to former Department of Homeland Security official Brian Murphy, who filed the formal whistleblower complaint with the department’s inspector general this week.

In a news release, Schiff said that he and his committee would probe Murphy’s “grave and disturbing” allegations of “serious wrongdoing” by senior Trump officials, including acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolfe and acting Deputy DHS Secretary Ken Cuccinnelli.

“We will get to the bottom of this, expose any and all misconduct or corruption to the American people, and put a stop to the politicization of intelligence,” he sternly promised.

Here’s the kicker

What Schiff conveniently did not mention is that no more than five weeks earlier he had accused Murphy of lying to Congress.

According to a New York Times report in August, Schiff said that his committee had been conducting “rigorous oversight” of Murphy’s actions as acting under secretary in the department’s Intelligence and Analysis branch and were “concerned that Murphy may have provided incomplete and potentially misleading information to Committee staff during our recent oversight engagement.” (emphases added)

At the time, Murphy had just been reassigned from his position after it was discovered his unit was compiling intelligence on journalists in Portland, Oregon.

The Times report noted that it wasn’t only Schiff who had complaints about Murphy’s questionable workplace conduct:

In 2015, Mr. Murphy joined F.B.I. headquarters to work on an effort known as Countering Violent Extremism, or C.V.E., after serving as an assistant special agent in charge of counterterrorism in Chicago. Mr. Murphy was known as an ambitious investigator who was once profiled in a self-aggrandizing article about a terrorism case he had worked on. But some former agents and Justice Department officials familiar with Mr. Murphy’s work at the time, who requested anonymity to discuss internal discussions at the agencies, expressed concern about some C.V.E. proposals, his tendency to ignore the rules and failure to coordinate his activities. (emphases added)

Furthermore, in the news release, Schiff acknowledged that his committee’s investigation into the I&A — and thus Murphy — is ongoing, which makes the timing of Murphy’s complaint all the more peculiar.

At the least, it might appear to some that Schiff’s opinion of Murphy as a reliable source shifted considerably at the precise moment that Murphy’s stance toward the Trump administration turned hostile.

DHS spokesman Alexei Woltornist flatly denied Murphy’s allegations Wednesday, saying the department “looks forward to the results of any resulting investigation and we expect it will conclude that no retaliatory action was taken against Mr. Murphy.”

CNN Caught With Photoshopped Image of Joe Biden

0

In a special program, Fight for the White House: Joe Biden’s Long Journey, CNN highlighted the Democratic nominee’s career on screen. This included a popular photograph of Biden and one of his sons at an old sports stadium. The kid pictured is wearing a maroon hat but the image is entirely photoshopped.

In the original photograph, the kid is wearing a hat with the controversial former logo of the Washington Redskins NFL team. The logo was digitally removed in the image presented during the special program. CNN News turned around and put the blame on the Biden campaign when they were mocked over it.

The Washington Redskins abandoned the logo and name in July after years of controversy and criticism from the radical left who found the name to be racist. They are now simply known as the Washington football team. CNN got a lot of backlash over the photoshopped image.

“This is a terrible look, @CNN Removing the Redskins logo from what is an otherwise great picture of Biden and his son is exactly the kind of thing they’d go after Fox News for doing if it was about Trump,” said Josh Jordan.

John R. Lott, the president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, asked when CNN would be registering as a campaign organization since they love to airbrush out inconvenient history so that no one will remember it.

Others noted that Biden had posted the original image with a Father’s Day post on Facebook in June.

“As with any biographical documentary, we ask the subject for photos and videos. We received this picture and many others from the Biden campaign, and any additional inquiries should be sent their way. Future airings will include the original photo,” said a CNN source.

It’s interesting how CNN noted they would include the original photo in future airings, but did not apologize for the incident. They knew they were presenting tampered evidence to the audience and didn’t bat an eye. This is the epitome of fake news.

A Biden campaign spokesperson noted that the photograph sent to CNN was doctored to remove the Redskins logo over copyright concerns. They explained that this was a common practice by political campaigns. If you ask me, this feels like the old USSR or 1984 with some top-notch manipulative media.

The cancel culture won’t stop until erasure is complete. The altering of historic photographs is journalistic malpractice, in my opinion, but it’s CNN. What did you expect?

ACLU staffer attacks university for accepting Nick Sandmann, calls teen’s admission ‘a slap in the face’

0

An employee of the American Civil Liberties Union has issued a public condemnation of Transylvania University in Kentucky over the school’s acceptance of former Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann, calling the university’s decision “a slap in the face.”

Sandmann, 18, is a well-known conservative and supporter of President Donald Trump. He spoke at the Republican National Convention last month.

What are the details?

ACLU Kentucky communications staffer Samuel Crankshaw took to Facebook on Saturday to slam Transylvania University — his alma mater — for allowing Sandmann in. His post was first reported by George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley, who testified before Congress against the impeachments of President Bill Clinton and President Donald Trump.

“Does anyone think it’s a bit of a stain on Transylvania University for accepting Nick Sandman (sic)?” Crankshaw began. “I’m sure it’s a ‘both sides’ defense, but it’s pretty counter to their mission and another instance of there not actually being equal sides to an issue.”

Professor Turley noted in his own analysis that “the ‘both sides’ defense used to be the position of the ACLU in fighting for all sides to be given equal opportunities and protections.”

The ACLU employee continued, “But this kid clearly is a provocateur in training with no intention of learning. He exists only to troll, intimidate and play victim.”

Crankshaw went on to call Sandmann “dangerous” before adding, “Having experienced the incredibly high standards Transy requires for admission and then holds its students to, this seems like a slap in the face. I hope some time in a real classroom changes him, but his twitter and public persona suggest otherwise.”

An assistant professor and diversity scholar at Transylvania, Avery Tompkins, responded to Cranshaw’s post, stating, “While I certainly don’t support or agree with [Sandmann’s] views, and find his public behavior and rhetoric atrocious and uninformed, we can’t not admit academically qualified students due to their political and personal views.”

Tompkins promised to keep an eye on Sandmann “just like (she) would for any student” causing problems. She later issued an apology for her “mistake in singling out a student and any misunderstandings that arose from that.”

ACLU Kentucky’s deputy director told The Daily Mail of her employee’s online declaration, “These were personal views expressed on personal time on a personal Facebook account. The views in this post do not necessarily reflect the views of the ACLU of Kentucky.”

At some point, Crankshaw also added a disclaimer to his Facebook post, stating, “NOTE: These are my personal views that I am expressing on my personal Facebook page on my personal time. They do not necessarily reflect the views of my current or past employers. I have a First Amendment right to express my views just as Nick Sandmann has a First Amendment right to express his. I will continue to express my views on my personal time.”

What’s the background?

Nicholas Sandmann was smeared by several mainstream media outlets last year when he was seen on video in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., smiling while face-to-face with a Native American man, Nathan Phillips. Phillips was beating a drum and some outlets suggested the teen was mocking the older man, but further footage showed that Phillips actually confronted the teen.

CNN and The Washington Post both settled defamation lawsuits with Sandmann earlier this year.
