‘Trump is a mass killer’: Michael Moore slams Trump for killing more Americans than Osama bin Laden 14.9.2020 Raw Story
The COVID-19 coronavirus, according to Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, has killed more than 924,000 people worldwide — and at least 194,000 of those deaths are in the United States. The fact that the U.S. has become the COVID-19 hotspot of the world isn’t lost on liberal/progressive filmmaker and activist Michael Moore, who slammed President Donald Trump […]

It was 19 years ago, on September 11, 2001, that the United States suffered the deadliest terrorist attack in its history. Almost 3000 people were killed when members of the terrorist group al-Qaeda hijacked four airplanes, flying two of them into the World Trade Center in New York City and one of them into the […]

Osama Bin Laden's Niece Is A Trump-loving Fan Of QAnon, Prison Planet, And Michael Flynn 8.9.2020 Crooks Liars
Jon Levine, the mysterious journalist who writes multiple stories for the New York Post, but only on Saturdays, and who last week published a credulity-straining interview with a self-proclaimed Democratic mail-in voter fraud operative (anonymous, naturally), is back with a celebrity interview of sorts: Another 9/11-style attack may be just around the corner if Joe Biden is elected president, warns Noor bin Ladin, the niece of Sept. 11 terror mastermind Osama bin Laden. “ISIS proliferated under the Obama/Biden administration, leading to them coming to Europe. Trump has shown he protects America and us by extension from foreign threats by obliterating terrorists at the root and before they get a chance to strike,” bin Ladin, 33, told The Post in her first-ever interview. (That really sounds like conversational English, doesn't it?) Bin Ladin (whose branch of the family has always spelled their name differently than her infamous uncle) lives in Switzerland but said she considers herself “an American at ...
Israel to withhold bodies of all Palestinian militants 3.9.2020 Raw Story
Israel decided Wednesday to withhold the bodies of all slain Palestinian militants in a bid to deter attacks, a move slammed by rights groups as “barbaric”. Prior to the decision, approved by the government’s security cabinet, Israel retained the bodies of militants only from Hamas, the Islamist rulers of Gaza. The new policy would see […]

Mark Meadows Tries To Erase Osama Bin Laden Raid From History 20.8.2020 Crooks Liars
On Fox & Friends this morning, cohost Ainsley Earhardt teed up a softball for Meadows to attack the Democratic convention. “You heard John Kerry knocking [Trump's] foreign policy; Bill Clinton say coronavirus has just been chaotic. What’s the White House’s response?” Today, the coronavirus death toll approaches 173,000 . But the best defense of Trump’s record Meadows could come up with was some dishonest whataboutism: “When you look at John Kerry talking about a foreign policy and how he made Iran supposedly a safe nation, not a single American believes that,” Meadows replied. How many Americans believe Trump has made us safer by pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal? Only 29% supported that move when he made it. Then came the next lie. “This is the only president who actually went after a terrorist and took him out, the pre-eminent state sponsor of terror.” Meadows added. Presumably, he was talking about the killing of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani. But I’ll bet most Americans couldn’t even remember ...

Gov. Ron DeSantis Compares Kids Going To School With Navy SEALs Hunting Osama Bin Laden 13.8.2020 Crooks Liars
Since Donald Trump began his run for political office on June 16, 2015, it can be hard to put into words what you're feeling much of the time. That is, once you run out of expletives. Trump's criminality, exaggerations, obfuscations, braggadocios, lies, conspiracy theories and insipid analogies can overwhelm one's psyche. And now, to back up Trump's Idiocracy, Florida's Governor Ron DeSantis once again proves how incompetent and inept he, too, can be, while the pandemic ravishes Florida under his watch. Trump is trying to force the nation's parents to send their kids back to school, and Ron DeSantis is helping. During yesterday's press conference DeSantis actually compared children going to class to a wet-work squad stalking a murderous terrorist. During Wednesday's remarks about the state of affairs for Florida during COVID-19, DeSantis recounted a story (if it's even true) by Martin County Superintendent Laurie Gaylord which caused a meltdown on social media platforms around the world. DeSantis said, ...
Ted Cruz Ridiculously Claims Right-Wing ‘Boogaloo’ Killer Was ‘Antifa’ 8.8.2020 Crooks Liars
Republicans have long embraced Trumpian lies they call “alternative facts,” but Texas Sen. Ted Cruz this week reached new depths by outright falsifying the record about a domestic terrorist who killed a federal police officer (as well as a sheriff’s deputy, eight days later)—while promulgating a false narrative blaming “antifa” and “the violent left” for violence at the nationwide protests against police ...

Elise Jordan: 'Going For The Culture War Didn't Work Out So Well For Him In 2018' 6.7.2020 Crooks Liars
Willie Geist confesses he had to "read and re-read" one of the passages from Trump's Saturday night speech. "Where he compares the defeat of the radical left to the defeat of Nazis, communism and chasing terrorists like Osama Bin Laden, he said we did that as a country, we too can beat the radical left. An astounding comparison by the president of the United States," he said to former Bush staffer Elise Jordan. "Jesus Christ, if that's what Donald Trump thinks the crisis this nation faces is right now, then we really are in a terrible, terrible state of affairs. I found it so incredible that Fourth of July weekend, huge address at Mount Rushmore, he does an odd history mash-up and grievance politics but doesn't talk about any of our current armed forces serving abroad in war zones. "You look at all the recent scandal with Donald Trump not protecting our troops in Afghanistan from Russian bounties and instead cozying up to Putin even more, and you can see where this commander in chief's priorities are. ...
