‘Height of Elitism’: Jake Tapper Rips Anti-Trump HuffPo, Daily News Headlines

tapper
In an interview with The Wrap, CNN’s Jake Tapper ripped the Huffington Post and New York Daily News for their attacks against Donald Trump’s supporters. After Trump’s landslide win in New Hampshire Tuesday night, the Huffington Post attacked Trump’s voters as “racist, sexist xenophobes.” The New York Daily News attacked them as “mindless zombies.” Tapper described both as the “height of elitism.” “I think those are business decisions that they are making, not journalistic decisions. They think that will appeal to readers and allow them to carve out a niche to get clicks or have newspapers purchased,” said the host of “The Lead with Jake Tapper,” in an interview with TheWrap. “But, I think journalistically, to not take Donald Trump seriously is a mistake. And I think journalistically to attack people who support a candidate is the very height of elitism,” added Tapper. “These are Americans exercising their right to vote and it’s important to go out and meet them and talk to them and find out why they’re supporting the candidates they’re supporting. It’s not my approach to journalism. My approach to journalism is to cover what’s going on and try to understand it and understand the voters and

Breitbart’s Aaron Klein: Sanders’ Troubling Record On Israel

Sen. Bernie Sanders has a troubling personal record on the Jewish state and consults Israel critics for foreign policy advice, Breitbart Jerusalem bureau chief Aaron Klein stated in a radio interview. Klein was speaking during his weekly segment on John Batchelor’s popular national radio show. Sanders is the first Jew to win a U.S. presidential primary. Click below to listen to Klein’s full segment on Batchelor’s program. Klein spoke the same day the progressive-leaning Forward newspaper reported there are indications Hillary Clinton will use Sanders’ lack of significant support for the Jewish state as a campaign tactic to woo Jewish and pro-Israel voters. Sanders has largely been silent about Israel on the campaign trail. As Breitbart Jerusalem reported earlier this week, Sanders this past weekend admitted to seeking foreign policy advice from critics of the Jewish state. In an interview with NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday, the Democratic candidate gave the following reply when asked about his plans for Secretary of Defense: “We talked to people like Jim Zogby, talked to the people on J Street, to get a broad perspective of the Middle East.” While the George Soros-funded J Street describes itself as a liberal, pro-Israel lobby, it has faced mounting criticism for the policies it advocates, which many argue are harmful to

Blue On Blue Violence: MSNBC Blasts CNN Over Trump/Scarborough Report

Screenshot
Some delicious blue-on-blue violence broke out Wednesday afternoon as the left-wing CNN and the left-wing MSNBC went after one another over a CNN report that claimed ‘Morning Joe” co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski “hung out in Trump’s hotel room last night during primary returns[.]” Via Twitter, Scarborough fired back at CNN’s media reporter Dylan Byers by denying the report and calling him a liar. “Your sources are wrong, and your sources are CNN reporters,” Scarborough tweeted. “You spread a different lie about us every day.” Scarborough followed that up with, “I understand you guys resent that we double your audience every day, but enough of the lying. Did CNN hire you just to lie about Morning Joe? The obsession is unhealthy.” Byers responded by challenging Scarborough, “Then go on rec and say I’m wrong. This game of not responding/staying off-rec then issuing ad hominems doesn’t work [.]” MSNBC quickly released a statement calling CNN’s reporting untrue while admitting that, like many journalists that evening, the MSNBC co-hosts were in Trump’s suite for “five minutes” to watch the returns and “get Mr. Trump’s reaction to the victory.” MSNBC also bragged about trouncing CNN’s execrable morning show “New Day” in the

Imam Urges Denmark To Allow Muslim Child Brides: ‘It’s Part Of Their Culture’

Child Bride Migrants
Child brides being brought to Europe by their often considerably older migrant husbands are to be separated in Denmark, but one high profile Imam is urging the government to accept “that it is a different culture”. A number of recent cases where marriages of adult men to girls as young as 14 years of age, sanctioned by the Danish state, has become a national scandal. Now, right-wing immigration minister Inger Støjberg has vowed the children will be protected in future, with couples where one of the parties is under 18 being separated whether they have already arrived in Denmark or not — although the age of consent in the country is just 15. “It is completely unacceptable that there are currently minors within the Danish asylum system living with their spouses or partners and I have asked the Danish Immigration Service to immediately put a stop to it”, said Støjberg this week. In at least one case an adult husband was allowed to see his pregnant young wife under supervision, and in another the authorities were misled over the age of the wife and she was allowed to live with her husband in migrant accommodation unchecked. It is reported eight married children in Danish asylum centres are

Private Letter CONFIRMS Margaret Thatcher Would Have Voted To Leave The EU

GettyImages-150346380
A private letter from Margaret Thatcher to a prominent Eurosceptic MP lays to rest any argument that the former Prime Minister would have campaigned to remain in the European Union (EU) in the upcoming referendum. The letter, sent by Margaret Thatcher to the veteran Tory MP Sir Bill Cash in March 1993, was written shortly after the modern European Union was established with the adoption of the Maastricht Treaty. Sir Bill, one of the former Prime Minister’s most loyal supporters, says it shows it would be “simply inconceivable” that Lady Thatcher would have supported Prime Minister David Cameron’s proposed deal on renegotiated membership. The letter shows Lady Thatcher had no sympathy with political and economic union as envisaged by the EU, reports The Daily Mail. It is a short and precise statement of her position which does not lend itself to interpretation. It reads, in full: I understand it is being suggested in some quarters that I would have agreed to the Maastricht Treaty. May I make it clear that I would NOT [underlined] have done so. In my view it is contrary to British interests and damaging to our Parliamentary Democracy. Sir Bill’s letter bluntly contradicts the recent assertion made by Lord Powell — Lady Thatcher’s chief

Migrant Crisis Funder George Soros: ‘Putin Is a Bigger Threat To Europe’s Than ISIS’

george soros
Migrant crisis funder billionaire George Soros has written for the Guardian newspaper this morning claiming that Russian President Vladimir Putin is a bigger threat to Europe’s existence than the Islamic State.  The opinion piece from the U.S.-based Hungarian billionaire comes on the back of claims by Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban that Mr. Soros, using his cash-rich “Open Society Foundations” fuels the migrant crisis in a bid to encourage open borders and mass migration. The end goal? Cheap, migrant labour for Mr. Soros’s big business, interests, claim his critics. Despite Mr. Soros’s organisation funding the “pull factors” of the migrant crisis – namely the talking heads and reports that encourage open borders – the billionaire alleges that it is Mr Putin’s actions in Syria that are causing millions of people to migrate to Europe. Mr. Soros writes:  The leaders of the US and the EU are making a grievous error in thinking that president Vladimir Putin’s Russia is a potential ally in the fight against Islamic State. The evidence contradicts them. Putin’s aim is to foster the EU’s disintegration, and the best way to do so is to flood Europe with Syrian refugees. Russian planes have been bombing the civilian population
