OAN, One America News Network, a small conservative media outlet in San Diego, sued Rachel Maddow, the prime time star of MSNBC news, for $10 million after she falsely claimed on air, “In this case, the most obsequiously pro-Trump right-wing news outlet (OAN) in America really literally is paid Russian propaganda. Their on-air U.S. politics reporter is paid by the Russian government to produce propaganda for that government.” Maddow based her claim on the the fact that before the staffer was employed by OAN, she had done some freelance work for Sputnik News, and did not do any work for Sputnik after she was hired by OAN. Maddow’s lawyers argued that the news star’s statement was “rhetorical hyperbole, incapable of being proved true or false.” But, it can be proven false. UC Santa Barbara linguist professor, Stefan Thomas Gries, said that Maddow’s statement was unlikely to to be considered an opinion, and that Maddow, a graduate of Stanford and Oxford Universities and a Rhodes Scholar, is not the sort of person an audience would expect to misuse the word “literally.”
Back in September, we reported that TV network OAN had filed a lawsuit against Rachel Maddow for the time the host said that OAN “really, literally is paid Russian propaganda.”
Now, Maddow finds herself having to come up with a defense for her statement in court. And she has also apparently hired Lionel Hutz as her legal adviser.
According to Culttture, her lawyers argued in a recent motion that “…the liberal host was clearly offering up her ‘own unique expression’ of her views to capture what she saw as the ‘ridiculous’ nature of the undisputed facts. Her comment, therefore, is a quintessential statement ‘of rhetorical hyperbole, incapable of being proved true or false.”
Oh, it’s capable of being proved false, alright. Maddow had previously claimed, on air, about one of OAN’s reporters:
“In this case, the most obsequiously pro-Trump right wing news outlet in America is really literally is paid Russian propaganda,” and added, “Their on-air politics reporter (Kristian Rouz) is paid by the Russian government to produce propaganda for that government.”
The testimony of UC Santa Barbara linguistics professor Stefan Thomas Gries, however, stands at odds with Maddow’s defense. Gries said: “It is very unlikely that an average or reasonable/ordinary viewer would consider the sentence in question to be a statement of opinion.”
Job insecurity and fear of contracting the virus while pregnant likely dissuaded Americans from having babies. The declines were steeper in states that were hit the hardest by COVID-19, such as California and New York. The decrease in the US birth rate risks a blowout in the per-capita level of America’s exploding debt.
Notorious lockdown states such as New York and New Jersey have some of the worst mortality numbers. States with no restrictions, such as Texas and Florida, have fewer deaths than New York and New Jersey. Every state that has removed its mask mandate is outperforming New York and New Jersey in terms of deaths.
Biden’s new climate plan targets for 2030 come directly from the United Nations and include reducing red meat consumption by 90%, allowing only 4 pounds per year, and decreasing all animal source foods & products by 50%.
Without proper safeguards, new technology might be used to alter people’s thoughts, employing algorithms via the internet to re-program their hard wiring, to dictate their interests, preferences or patterns of consumption.
If this were any other vaccine, it would have been pulled from the market after 50 unexplained deaths. The CDC reviewed about 1,600 deaths and indicated that not a single death was related to the vaccine! The doctor said it is impossible to opine that none of the deaths were vaccine-related without thorough investigation.
A powerful teachers union lobbied the CDC to change the school-reopening guidance that was released in February. Teachers’ unions across the United States rallied to keep schools closed during the pandemic, ignoring a body of scientific evidence that said it’s safe to teach students face-to-face.
This is a classic example of how a mainstream news promotes a false narrative about right-wing terrorism. We are convinced most of the so-called right-wing domestic terrorists are actors and mercenaries hired to create boogieman to frighten citizens into accepting totalitarian measures to combat the manufactured threat.
A woman ranted at the officer, made racial slurs against him, and accused him of trying to murder her and her son. The officer did not respond to her provocations and carried out his duties with patience. His video recording of the incident vindicated him and undoubtedly saved him from severe penalties and harassment.
Vivekh, a 59-year old comedian and actor died two days after taking Covaxin, India’s homegrown COVID-19 vaccine. He took the injection during a public televised event for the purpose of removing fear of vaccination among the public.
Most reports coming from India follow the story line that the virus is is killing alarming numbers, that hospitals are overwhelmed, but that the situation will get better when everyone is vaccinated. This is the same scenario popularized in Europe and the US. The mortality death rate is similar to the flu.
Christian pastor John Sherwood was arrested by police after a member of the public reported him for the “homophobic” comment of saying, while preaching, that marriage is between a man and a woman. He was arrested under the Public Order Act for using “abusive or insulting words” that cause “harm” to another person.
Del Bigtree interviews three professional health-care workers who tell their heart-breaking stories of what happened when they happily accepted the mRNA vaccine. Within a few days of the injections, they were in constant, full-body convulsions.
One of Facebook’s most prominent “fact checking” groups is funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation that holds about 15% of its assets, over $1.8-billion of stock, in vaccine manufacturer Johnson and Johnson. In other words, the vaccine companies control the flow of information about vaccines.
Aanika is a company that created a genetically modified organism probiotic spore that can be misted onto dry goods or added to liquid products so that the spores can be traced. The spores added to food will be tracked from the field to the store, to your stomach, and finally to the smart sewers for total surveillance.
Two lawsuits accusing DC Metropolitan Police Department of ‘excessive force’, after arresting 200 people during riots at Trump’s 2017 inauguration, settled for a total of $1.6 million to be awarded to accused Antifa members.
Her bill adds an extra punishment for veterans, and is designed to discourage them from even thinking about taking part in a protest that might turn violent or joining a group that might be perceived as anti-government and labeled “domestic terrorists” by the left.

The President’s tweet has been criticized for a lack of good tatse. However, CNN has failed to show concern over leftist celebrities calling for genuine violence against Trump – a giveaway that ther criticism is politically motivated.
The US Department of Defense wants to prevent viral fake news from ‘polarizing society.’ [Not to worry. The government would never use this power to prevent the exposure of corruption within its ranks, would it?]
Following the elections, reporters pretended to ask questions of news value as an excuse for hurling insults against the President. Notice how these reporters are not reporting on Trump but criticizing him. They are political activists with press passes.
