Tucker Carlson Releases Bombshell Tape Of Cuomo Coaching Cohen On How To Answer Interview Questions

By Daily Wire News Sep 9, 2020 DailyWire.com


Fox News host Tucker Carlson released a bombshell tape on Wednesday night that showed CNN host Chris Cuomo coaching then-Trump attorney Michael Cohen on how to answer questions during interviews on CNN.

“Zucker and Cuomo … are frauds, just like the channel they work for,” Carlson began. “Despite its name, CNN is not a cable news network, it is a slickly produced propaganda loop. Every topic CNN covers has been chosen for its political effect. Every word its anchors speak has been curated to manipulate you. Nothing winds up on CNN by accident.”

“The whole thing is a scripted drama written for the benefit of the Democratic Party,” Carlson continued. “That’s not an overstatement; tonight we have proof. This is a conversation that took place in 2018 between CNN anchor Chris Cuomo and his friend, the disgraced felon lawyer Michael Cohen. The two spoke in person. Cohen wanted Cuomo to prepare him for an interview he’d been asked to do on CNN. As Michael Cohen put it, he wanted ‘Guidance, as a friend more than anything.'”

“Michael Cohen was worried about doing the interview because he knew he’d get questions about the payments he made to Stormy Daniels. He wanted Chris Cuomo to tell him what to say,” Carlson continued. “Now on TV, Cuomo might’ve launched into a lecture about how it’s wrong to send money to strippers, but in private, he skipped that lecture.”

“‘You will be asked that,’ Chris Cuomo told Michael Cohen, and you can say, ‘I did it for him, for Donald Trump. My relationship has always been for him. I’ve always said I don’t speak for the campaign, I speak for him as his attorney,'” Carlson continued. “Cuomo went on to elaborate, ‘And to the question of motive,’ he told Cohen, ‘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.'”

Carlson said that Cuomo had deployed the “time-tested” defense of “the obviously guilty,” which is to threaten those who are asking questions.

“Then he gamed out what would happen next when Cohen went on his own channel,” Carlson continued.

“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,’” Carlson read from the script of what Cuomo told Cohen. “Again, Cuomo advised Cohen to attack the anchor.”

We may be heading to a civil war. I have a feeling it will be a quick one.

Breitbart was live.  RIGHT NOW: Press Sec. Kayleigh McEnany Briefing...


August 11, 2020 

“To everyone instigating a possible civil war from all sides, let me give you a little bit of advice. Many of us served and fought in the wars. When our time was done, we came back to the USA to start over and live in peace. It wasn’t us who kneeled on the neck of a man until he died. It wasn’t us to retaliate by kneeling on the neck of a toddler saying “BLM NOW mf.”
You see, War is hell. Millions of you do not quite grasp this concept. We have been to hell, lived in hell, climbed out of hell, and don’t want to go back to hell. If you keep trampling on the peace we fought for, earned and love, then when that first shot gets fired, you will force us back to hell; and we will show you the brutal realities of hell.
Y’all better work this shit out before we do, because I guarantee you are not ready for this."

The New York Times is giving you a sneak peak into November. If the election is close, you can count on Democrats trying to steal the election. That’s what we face in America 2020.


Analysis: NY Times hints at Leftist Coup if Trump wins in November  Published on : August 2, 2020  by : Capstone Report

Trial Balloon? Or Threat if Joe Biden does not win in November?

If you think the Resistance to 2016 was unhinged, you haven’t seen anything yet. Get ready for crazy if the Woke Mob doesn’t get its way. The New York Times provided a hint into how Leftists could respond to a Donald Trump victory this November. Buried at the end of a column on the media’s coverage of the election was a shocking tidbit floating a constitutional crisis.

A group of former top government officials called the Transition Integrity Project actually gamed four possible scenarios, including one that doesn’t look that different from 2016: a big popular win for Mr. Biden, and a narrow electoral defeat, presumably reached after weeks of counting the votes in Pennsylvania. For their war game, they cast John Podesta, who was Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, in the role of Mr. Biden. They expected him, when the votes came in, to concede, just as Mrs. Clinton had.“

But Mr. Podesta, playing Mr. Biden, shocked the organizers by saying he felt his party wouldn’t let him concede. Alleging voter suppression, he persuaded the governors of Wisconsin and Michigan to send pro-Biden electors to the Electoral College.

“In that scenario, California, Oregon, and Washington then threatened to secede from the United States if Mr. Trump took office as planned. The House named Mr. Biden president; the Senate and White House stuck with Mr. Trump. At that point in the scenario, the nation stopped looking to the media for cues, and waited to see what the military would do.”


Wow.

However, hardly unexpected. Leftists spent the last four years crying about 2016. They’ve done everything possible to overturn that election verdict. If things don’t go their way in 2020, well, it won’t be pretty.

Violence in the streets we expect. That’s how Democrats handle things as the riots showcased over the last few months.

But, what do we make of this hint? Is it a trial balloon? A threat?

Whatever, it is irresponsible.

Of course, that is the New York Times these days. The irresponsible 1619 Project being the clearest example that the newspaper no longer cares about facts or fairness. But, it does tell you important things. Things like what the Elites are thinking.

The mainstream press is getting you ready for abnormally long delays in vote counting.

In most years, we know the outcome within a few hours of the polls closing. However, that might not suit Democrats, so get ready for a long, drawn out battle.

The long lecture about election delay is prepping the environment. They are prepping the environment for delays–delays that will be convenient for them.

While the mainstream press will be hopelessly controlled by Leftists pushing the Democratic talking points, there is always social media. Right?

Wrong.

Don’t think you’ll be able to share the truth on social media. They’ve already got a plan for how to handle troublemakers, err, I mean conservatives.

According to the NY Times column, “Facebook’s chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg, told me in a brief interview on Saturday that he’s planning to brace his audience for the postelection period. He said the site planned a round of education aimed at ‘getting people ready for the fact that there’s a high likelihood that it takes days or weeks to count this — and there’s nothing wrong or illegitimate about that.’”

Sure.

Sounds totally trustworthy.

In earlier eras, election results typically were known on election night. Which forces any of us to ask: What are Elites trying to do this time?

Oh, and we better ask that question now because as the Times’ Ben Smith explains, social media companies will control the flow of news about the election.

“And he said that Facebook is considering new rules regarding premature claims of victory or other statements about the results. He added that the company’s election center will rely on wire services for definitive results.”

New rules mean new ways to suppress conservatives.

That’s what it always means in Silicon Valley.

Top US General Exposes Deep State Coup Against the President   


Mainstream Media is reporting that the most senior officer in the US Armed Forces says, "There is no role for the military in the 2020 presidential election."

The article reveals that General Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff was responding to questions submitted by two members of congress, Elissa Slotkin of Michigan and Mickey Sherrill of New Jersey, who were apparently recruiting the General's support for a military coup.

These two were amongst the first to call for the impeachment of the President last year, for investigating Joe Biden's ties to the Ukraine. In a Washington Post Op-Ed, seven Freshman Democrats, all former military- and intelligence operatives, claimed to be a group of unified US patriots, sworn to save America from Donald Trump.

Abigail Spanberger and Elissa Slotkin were featured in headlines three years ago: "Ex-CIA officers running for Congress as Democrats." The article cited the unfounded Russia Hoax as the inspiration for these so-called "patriotic" CIA operatives to run for office.

NBC wrote that these CIA agents were "fed up" with the president and their new mission was to foil Trump. The move by the CIA to run agents in the 2018 elections came almost immediately after the president ordered devastating bombings of Afghanistan heroin operations, an operation that many believe was run by the CIA.

This is not surprising. The CIA has been involved in the international opium market since their inception. In 1947, when agency operatives worked with the Italian mafia and used heroin profits as CIA funding.

Slotkin and Sherrill were not the first to request the US military's assistance in their coup d'├ętat against President Trump. On August 11th, a lifetime member of the Council on Foreign Relations, along with a former lieutenant colonel of the Army wrote an open letter to General Milley.

Like out of a Philip K Dick novel, they predicted that Trump was mobilizing a secret army and threatened that General Milley would be guilty of treason if he would not help them remove the president from office.

The publication of General Milley's response to these CIA operatives is a sign of the American Deep State's weakness. They appear to be desperate.

Trump Orders 2,200 Troops to Leave IraqSept. 8th 2020

The United States will reduce the troop presence in Iraq from 5,200 to 3,000 during the month of September.

According to
Fox News:

The top U.S. commander in the Middle East announced in Baghdad Wednesday that 2,200
U.S. troops will withdraw from Iraq by the end of this month.

Marine Gen. Frank McKenzie made the announcement alongside the Iraqi Minister of Defense as a sign that the troop reduction decision was made in consultation with the government of Iraq.

“The United States has decided to reduce our troop presence in Iraq from about 5,200 to 3,000 troops during the month of September,” McKenzie said.
The withdrawal announcement Wednesday was a coordinated effort between the Pentagon and President Trump, who has pledged to exit “endless wars.” Trump has hit Democratic opponent Joe Biden for his vote in favor of the Iraq War in 2002 as a member of the U.S. Senate and has campaigned on getting the U.S. military out of the Middle East.

President Trump said during his RNC acceptance speech at the White House, “unlike previous administrations, I have kept America out of new wars and our troops are coming home.”

The US has announced that troop levels in Afghanistan will be reduced to 4,000 to 5,000 from current levels.

Most other comments condemned Kyle Rittenhouse (the 17 year old shooter) as a "White Supremist' but this lady wrote her comment exactly as I would have...!! NO ONE ELSE even mentioned "Jacob Blake" in their comments.....So I guess they're O K with him raping a young girl and defying a "stay away" court order and then Defying the Police.....


P****a F**r August 30

In all this discussion about Jacob Blake, I don't understand why there's no discussion about the fact that he should have NEVER been where he was when he was shot by police. What about the woman who called the police? She believed she was in danger because Jacob Blake was there. Look, all indications are shooting the man 7-8 times at that close range was excessive force (the investigation continues), but had he not been where he wasn't even supposed to be, would any of this happened? Isn't personal responsibility at play here at all? Or does that not matter anymore? 



Another October Surprise Executed Early? Timing of Liberal Media's New COVID Panic Push Is Beyond Transparent  Matt Vespa Posted: Sep 09, 2020




OO

Is this another October Surprise that was jettisoned early because the race is tightening up? I think so. The rioting, Joe Biden’s prolonged absences, his bunker mentality, and his struggles in some key Democratic counties, like Miami-Dade, is all seeping through. The polling is slowly starting to reflect what we’ve already known: the race is tightening up—big league. Trump and Biden are running neck-and-neck in Michigan, which has spooked the hell out of Michael Moore. The enthusiasm for Trump is through the roof. And Biden is chasing the president across the Rust Belt. That’s not the sign of a campaign that’s confident of its position, despite poll after poll showing Biden ahead by seven, eight, nine, or even ten points. Then again, these are based on old registered voter polls.

How to stop the bleeding? Well, you cannot count on Biden to do that. He gets too tired. He’s wiped out after giving one speech. So, the Democrats have to lean on their top ally: the liberal media. The first salvo has been fired, with The Atlantic’s fake news story about Trump denigrating America’s war dead three years ago in France. Unnamed sources with firsthand knowledge said it was true. Then, more anonymous sources confirmed it. So, anonymous sources confirmed what other unnamed sources have said in the story from a liberal magazine that’s entirely supported by…anonymous sources. It’s a circus—and no one cares. No one believes it except for anti-Trump Republicans who might be even more dense and dim-witted than their Democratic counterparts.

This was a story that was definitely being saved for later. For God’s sake, there were ads already made when this story dropped. As Kurt noted, they kept this bullet in the chamber but had to fire it off when the rioting started to impact the polls and Nancy Pelosi’s illegal trip to the hair salon in COVID prison state California overall made Democrats look bad. Deploy countermeasures! And now, with COVID mostly being ignored by Americans because we’re sick of this little virus, they’re trying to gin up more panic porn with this book from Bob Woodward, who alleges that Trump knew about the virus’ lethality in February, but only decided to tell us this little tale…less than 60 days from Election Day. The timing says it all, boys and girls (via NBC News)

THE 1619 PROJECT

In August of 1619, a ship appeared on this horizon, near Point Comfort, a coastal port in the English colony of Virginia. t carried more than 20 enslaved Africans, who were sold to the colonists. No aspect of the country that would be formed here has been untouched by the years of slavery that followed. On the 400th anniversary of this fateful moment, it is finally time to tell our story truthfully.
The 1619 Project
The 1619 Project is an ongoing initiative from The New York Times Magazine that began in August 2019, the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery. It aims to reframe the country’s history by placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of our national narrative.

'Not a white guy named Edison': Biden claims a black man invented the light bulb  Guy Jodopeg  


It's amazing that who ever is in charge of Joe Biden let's him go out in public and just make a fool of himself over and over again..

The Democrats think that Black people are so stupid that they won't even take one minute to search and fact check Biden's crazy claims.

According to Joe Biden it wasn't a "White Guy" named Edison that invented the first light bulb, it was a Black man.

Lewis Latimer worked for Edison Electric and filed a patent improvement on Edison's light bulb in 1881.

Thomas Edison patented his light bulb in late 1879.....

It's like saying that John Browning didn't invent the .45acp but some gunsmith working in his company did.

I'm not taking away from Lewis Latimer's contribution to science here, But like every great invention that is someone's brain child, others will make improvements on it.

And there's always room for improvement on any idea...

And judging from Lewis Latimer's photos, his work ethic and self educating mind.... I believe that Lewis would probably be a Trump supporter if he were alive today.

But the Democrats will stand in front of seemingly intelligent Black people and tell the the opposite is true, just like they do with many other historical facts.

History revision and pandering is what is woven into the Democrat's propaganda. If the Democrats are so willing to lie about the past , then they are also lying about the present....

How Attacks On Trump Help Him To Make His Case


In 2016 the Democrats lost the election despite their constant attacks on Donald Trump's personality. Over the last four years they continued those attacks with Russiagate and impeachment nonsense. Trump turned each of the attacks into a win for himself. Unfortunately that pattern continues.

Over the last two days the Joe Biden campaign made a rather hapless attempt to smear President Donald Trump over allegedly negative comments about previous wars and dead soldiers. The attack was launched with a Jeffrey Goldberg piece in the Atlantic headlined: Trump: Americans Who Died in War Are ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers’

When President Donald Trump canceled a visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018, he blamed rain for the last-minute decision, saying that “the helicopter couldn’t fly” and that the Secret Service wouldn’t drive him there. Neither claim was true.

Trump rejected the idea of the visit because he feared his hair would become disheveled in the rain, and because he did not believe it important to honor American war dead, according to four people with firsthand knowledge of the discussion that day. In a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the scheduled visit, Trump said, “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.”

None of what those four anonymous sources claimed is true according to on the record quotes from people who were there:

Several White House officials at the time said the decision not to take Marine One to the Belleau Wood cemetery was made by Zachary Fuentes, a close aide to Mr. Kelly, without consulting the president’s military aide. Others argued that a trip by road would have taken too long, at roughly two hours.

Administration officials said then that Mr. Fuentes had assured Mr. Trump it was fine to miss the visit.

More than a half-dozen current and former aides to Mr. Trump backed him up with Twitter messages and statements disputing that part of the Atlantic article. “I was actually there and one of the people part of the discussion — this never happened,” wrote Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who was then the White House press secretary. “This is not even close to being factually accurate,” added Jordan Karem, the president’s personal aide at the time.

John Bolton, who at that time was National Security Advisor but has now fallen out with Trump, describes the cancellation in his tell-all book as solely weather related.

Yesterday he reconfirmed that:

Mr. Bolton said he was in the room at the ambassador’s residence when Mr. Trump arrived and Mr. Kelly told him that the helicopter trip had to be canceled. A two-hour motorcade would have put him too far away from Air Force One and the most capable communications array a president needs in case of an emergency, per usual protocol, Mr. Bolton said. “It was a straight weather call,” he said.

The next day Trump visited a different military cemetery in France.

President Trump Orders a Halt to the Anti-White Racial Discrimination Practiced Throughout the US Government
The same racial discrimination against white Americans, especially male, is endemic throughout corporations and universities.  In America the process of dispossessing white people of their self-respect is far advanced.  White Americans are so devoid of racial pride that they tolerate racial abuse that my generation would not put up with.  
“America’s first black president” initiated the anti-white racist policy of  spending taxpayer money–essentially white money– to indoctrinate all white employees of the federal government that they are racists and must make amends.  Imagine the idiocy of the dumbshit whites who put the racist Obama in the presidency.  Will the dumbshits now put Kamala in the presidency?  Instead of voting her in, they should just cut their own throats.
Here is Trump’s order rescinding Obama’s anti-white racist policy: https://www.whitehouse.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/M-20-34.pdf

Democratic presidential candidate Biden and Trump separately visited violence-plagued Kenosha this week in the aftermath of the police shooting of Jacob Blake last month.

The shooting on August 23 prompted Black Lives Matter protesters to continue demonstrations across the country.

Sharpton slammed the president for "projecting those that are violent" and said "he tries to act like Black Lives Matter and Antifa is the same thing.”

Antifa is the left-wing political protest movement that gained prominence after the white supremacist Unite the Right rally that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017.

The Black Lives Matter movement is the civil rights group that came about in response to extreme police brutality.

"We had this big March on Saturday, tens of thousands of people, not one arrest, no violence, all of the families there, you didn’t hear one tweet from the president,” Sharpton said on MSNBC.


“[Trump] never mentioned it. Because he cannot afford to deal with it when he can’t make you look like hoodlums and thugs.

NERVOUS PETER STRZOK FLIPS – ADMITS DOSSIER CONTAINED ‘BULLSH*T’ THAT LED EVERYONE ON A ‘WILD-GOOSE CHASE’  BY WAYNE DUPREE  05 SEPTEMBER, 2020 

Look who's singing like a canary
 






Well, well, well…

Look who’s singing a different tune…

During an interview with The Atlantic, disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok admitted that the Steele dossier contained misinformation, bullsh*t, and rumors, which subsequently led everyone on off on a wild goose chase

From Washington Examiner

Fired FBI special agent Peter Strzok tried to distance himself from British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s dossier, critiquing some of the former MI6 agent’s anti-Trump election reporting while criticizing those he saw as using its weaknesses to undermine the Trump-Russia investigation.

Strzok, who was a key member in the FBI’s investigation into both former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s improper private email server and Crossfire Hurricane’s Trump-Russia inquiry, made the comments during an interview with Anne Applebaum of the Atlantic.

“The Steele report was a problem for the investigation because it sent people off on a series of wild-goose chases,” Strzok said, adding, “the report was very typical of information that the FBI often receives. It comes from several sources, including some suspect sources. Some of it is bullshit, and some of it is rumor, and some of it is disinformation.”

Ukraine impeachment witness and the National Security Council’s former Russia expert similarly called Steele’s dossier a “rabbit hole” that “very likely” contained Russian disinformation.

Vanderbilt Student Docked For Not Agreeing The Constitution Is Racist  THEFEDERALIST.COM



A student at Vanderbilt University was docked points on a quiz Tuesday for rejecting the statement that “the Constitution [was] designed to perpetuate white supremacy and protect the institution of slavery,” according to screenshots of the quiz result.

According to Kara Zupkus of the Young America’s Foundation (YAF), the required quiz was part of a class on the 2020 U.S. elections taught by university professors Josh Clinton, Eunji Kim, Dean John Geer, and Jon Meacham, the same Jon Meacham who spoke on behalf of former Vice President Joe Biden at Democrats’ virtual convention just two weeks ago.

According to YAF, the class syllabus deems the course “the largest class that Vanderbilt has ever taught.”

Vanderbilt University did not immediately respond to The Federalist’s request for comment.

The idea that the U.S. Constitution was designed to perpetuate racial oppression is a core message of the left’s cultural revolution to re-write history, most notably embedded in The New York Times’ anti-American “1619 Project.” That project is now in thousands of U.S. public school classrooms.

The 1619 Project's Fake History: The Architects of Woke


May 4, 2020   

The Architects of Woke series takes aim at far-left post-modernist and Marxist thinkers and activists responsible for the spread of identity politics from college campuses to society at large. 

The sixth episode, “The 1619 Project's Fake History”, covers the New York Times Magazine's 1619 Project. Directed by Nikole Hannah-Jones, the project attempts to reframe our understanding of American history by alleging the central event in the founding of the United States was the first importation of enslaved Africans to Virginia in 1619 and not the Declaration of Independence in 1776. The project has been notably criticized by esteemed historians for its factual errors. Despite this, schools across the nation have embedded the 1619 Project into their curriculums, perhaps endangering our nation's understanding of its founding for generations to come...
Rep. Jim Jordan probes DC’s ‘dangerous’ effort to rebrand monuments, facilities

Jim Jordan (R-OH) participates in a House Judiciary Committee markup vote on a resolution to issue a subpoena to the Justice Department to receive the full unredacted Mueller report, on Capitol Hill April 3, 2019 in Washington, DC.

Champaign County Republican Rep. Jim Jordan on Friday announced that he will investigate the District of Columbia’s efforts to rebrand facilities including the Jefferson Memorial whose namesakes a city commission deemed to have “participated in the oppression” of African Americans or other minorities or otherwise “contributed to the nation’s history of systemic racism.”

Jordan, who is top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, joined with the top Republican on the House Oversight and Reform Committee, Kentucky’s James Comer, in a letter to District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser. The letter asks Bowser to provide them with documents and communications surrounding the creation of the District of Columbia Facilities and Commemorative Expressions (DCFACES) Working Group and its communications with her office, media enterprises, the Biden campaign, the Democratic National Committee, or any other political action committee.

On Tuesday, the DCFACES group released a report that suggests renaming facilities named for historic figures including Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Andrew Jackson, Woodrow Wilson, Alexander Graham Bell and Francis Scott Key and urges Bowser to ask the federal government to “remove, relocate, or contextualize” federal landmarks like the Jefferson Memorial and Washington Monument as well as federally owned statues of figures like Christopher Columbus.

Bowser, who assembled the working group in July, said its recommendations will guide the city as it strives for a “more inclusive Washington, D.C.” Her press office did not immediately respond to an emailed request for comment on Jordan’s letter.

The letter from Jordan and Comer says they were “shocked and appalled” that the city “would seek to erase the legacy of our nation’s founders and trivialize their contributions to the American experiment.

“You must immediately suspend this dangerous attempt at revising American history and desecrating the memory of our nation’s presidents, war heroes, and visionaries,” their letter continued. It said the monuments “are in place to represent American values and heritage-not simply to reflect your notion of ’contemporary DC values.’ Recommending their removal, relocation, or contextualization is nothing short of an attempt to rewrite the history of our country.”

A statement that Jordan released along with the letter accused Bowser and other Democrats of trying to “cancel” institutions and people “that have made our country great” and suggested that they “spend more time addressing left-wing violence and destruction plaguing their cities, instead of tearing down monuments and renaming buildings honoring America’s heroes.”

The White House greeted the proposal with a statement that accused Bowser of “repeating the same left-wing narrative used to incite dangerous riots: demolishing our history and destroying our great heritage,” and pledged that the recommendations would “go absolutely nowhere” as long as President Donald Trump is in office. It said Trump “believes these places should be preserved, not torn down; respected, not hated; and passed on for generations to come.”

Friday’s letter marks the second time in a week that Jordan and Comer have targeted Bowser. On Wednesday, they sent her a letter that questioned the city’s response to an unruly crowd outside the White House that swarmed Kentucky GOP Sen. Rand Paul last week after Trump’s speech to formally accept the Republican presidential nomination.

It’s also not the first time Jordan has tried to overrule decisions by the District of Columbia. In 2009, he introduced legislation that would have overturned the city’s decision to recognize same-sex unions from other states. Jordan’s legislation didn’t go anywhere, and a subsequent U.S. Supreme Court legalized gay marriage throughout the nation.
