A major new study out of Harvard University has revealed the true extent of the establishment media’s bias against President Donald Trump.

Academics at the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy analyzed coverage from Trump’s first 100 days in office across 10 major TV and print outlets.

It found that the tone of some outlets was negative in as many as 98% of reports, significantly more hostile than the first 100 days of the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations.

Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy analyzed media coverage of President Trump from both American and European news outlets.

The American media outlets they reviewed were CNN, NBC, CBS, Fox News, the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal. The European media outlets were the BBC, the UK’s Financial Times and the German public broadcaster ARD.

Every outlet was negative more often than positive, this included the right-leaning Fox News. In the study Fox News was ranked 52% negative and 48% positive.

The study also divided news items across topics.

On the subjects of immigration, healthcare, and Russia, more than 85% of reports were negative.

On the economy, the proportion appeared to be more balanced – 54% negative to 46% positive.

The picture was very different for other recent administrations. The study found that President Obama’s first 100 got positive good overall – with 59% of reports positive.

Bill Clinton and George W Bush got overall negative coverage, it found, but to a much lesser extent than Trump. Clinton’s first 100 days got 40% positive coverage, while George W. Bush received 43%.

President Trump has repeatedly claimed that his treatment by the establishment media is unprecedented in its hostility. This study out of Harvard University suggests that, at least in recent history, he’s right.

Multiple Sources: Seth Rich, slain DNC staffer, had contact with WikiLeaks

The DNC staffer who was gunned down on July 10 on a Washington, D.C., street last July just steps from his home had leaked thousands of internal emails to WikiLeaks, according to multiple sources. 

A federal investigator who reviewed an FBI forensic report detailing the contents of DNC staffer Seth Rich’s computer generated within 96 hours after his murder, said Rich made contact with Wikileaks through Gavin MacFadyen, a now-deceased American investigative reporter, documentary filmmaker, and director of WikiLeaks who was living in London at the time.

The revelation is consistent with the findings of Rod Wheeler, a former DC homicide detective and Fox News contributor and whose private investigation firm was hired by Rich’s family to probe the case. Rich was shot from behind, but was not robbed.

If the evidence that Seth Rich leaked Hillary Clinton and DNC emails to Wikileaks is true, it will put to bed the conspiracy that Russia interfered with the presidential election last year.

It also means that Seth Rich was probably murdered as a way to stop the flow of information from the DNC to Wikileaks. 

Maine People’s Alliance Welcomes Convicted Child Molester at Protests and Events

The Maine People’s Alliance paints itself as an non-profit organization out to help the poor and working families of Maine. They campaign on such issues as raising the minimum wage, welcoming refugees to Maine and universal health insurance. 

Scratch the surface of this group and the true nature of their organization appears.

A search of social media has revealed that Maine People’s Alliance has welcomed a child molester at its protests and events. These events had children present as well Democrat politicians and activists.

According to public record Douglas Lane of Lewiston was convicted of Gross Sexual Assault on two children under the age of fourteen on December 6th, 1999 in Androscoggin County Superior Court.

On May 2nd, 2011 the Sun Journal of Lewiston listed Mr. Lane in a public notification of local sex offenders. 

And yet despite these very public bits of information being available with a simple search of Google, the leadership at Maine People’s Alliance have clearly welcomed Mr. Lane to their activities and protests and have even possibly paid him as an activist. 

This picture was taken on January 10th, 2017 at an event in Lewiston where MPA activists along side of Maine Democrat activists are protesting the nomination of Jeff Sessions to the office of United States Attorney General. Mr Lane is in the red baseball cap; he is joined by Nate LeClair the former organizer of the MPA, as well as long time progressive activist Andi Parkinson.

Equally disturbing to fact that the Maine People’s Alliance welcomes child molesters to their rank, is the social media account of Douglas Lane.

A brief search of the Facebook groups that interest him include; 

“Straight, bisexual and gay teen dating (ages 13-25)”

“Filipino Boys for Gay Men”

lane 6

“Horny Teens 10-19 only”

“Gay boyz between 15 and 25 years”

“Older Men + Young Boys = LOVE”

Sober questions must be asked in light of this information:

Is Douglas Lane a paid activist for the Maine People’s Alliance? 

Has Douglas Lane come in contact with any children at Maine People’s Alliance events? 

Why does the Maine People’s Alliance surround themselves with these types of individuals?

Should the police investigate the Maine People’s Alliance for welcoming a child molester among their ranks? 

Will the Maine Democrats immediately end their partnership with the Maine People’s Alliance? 

Why hasn’t the establishment media in Maine covered this story?

Steve Bannon is Back! Economic Nationalism Plays Large Part In 100 Days Push

04/28/2017

By: John MacKenzie, Staff Reporter

Via Brietbart News

Jonathan Easley of The Hill writes that the nationalist populism of Steve Bannon has come back as President Donald Trump approaches 100 days in the White House.

This shift, Easley writes, has “allayed the fears of conservatives who worried that the president was more concerned with appeasing Washington insiders than fulfilling key campaign promises.”

From The Hill:

Grassroots conservatives expressed alarm when media reports suggested a West Wing shake-up was in the works, with Bannon among the casualties.

But with the White House hungry for victories ahead of Trump’s 100th day in office, the president has fallen back on the “economic nationalism” that’s central to Bannon’s worldview.

“Steve was benched and I think it got his attention and he realized he had to step up and show the president how he valuable he is,” said one GOP operative with close ties to the White House. “He’s kept his head down and got back to work and was ready when he was called upon.”

Keeping up a blistering pace punctuated by executive orders and tough talk, Trump appears to have recommitted himself to the nationalist-populist themes he rode into office when Bannon acted as his campaign chairman.

Doctor and Wife Arrested Outside of Detroit, Michigan For Performing FGM On Young Girls

04/21/2017

By: Allison Freeman

Doctor Fakhruddin Attar and wife Farida were arrested Friday near Detroit for conspiring to commit and aiding in female genital mutilation on girls as young as six-years-old. The Attars allegedly allowed the procedure to be carried in their Livonia medical clinic.

According to the criminal complaint from the Department of Justice, the couple conspired with Detroit emergency room doctor Jumana Nagarwala. Nagarwale was arrested last week for performing the procedure on a number of girls.

“This investigation has identified other children who may have been cut by Nagarwala at Attar’s clinic, MBC, between 2005 and 2017, including children in Michigan. On April 10, 2017, child forensic interviews employed by the FBI and HSI interviewed several minor girls in Michigan.

In these interviews, multiple minor girls informed forensic interviewers that procedures had been performed on their genitals by Nagarwala. One minor girl said that Farida was present during the procedure performed by Nagarwala,” the complaint states.

Parents of the victims were also interviewed by the FBI and two admitted Nagarwala had performed the procedures on their daughters at the clinic. The others denied any knowledge of the practice, but according to wiretapped conversations between Nagarwala and Mrs. Attar, Nagarwala advised parents to deny knowing about FGM should they be asked by federal law enforcement authorities.

The victims were driven by their parents across state lines for the extreme procedure, many coming from Minnesota. They will likely face a number of charges. The minors were told they were being taken on a “girls trip.” Once they arrived at the hotel, they were told they needed to go Nagarwala for a “stomach ache” and FGM was performed to “get the germs out.”

During her court appearance earlier this week, Dr. Nagarwala’s attorneys denied FGM is mutilation and said the procedure is a basic religious practice.

By: John MacKenzie, Staff Reporter

The Republican National Committee on Friday morning announced it raised $41.5 million in the first three months of 2017, its strongest-ever total for the first quarter following a presidential race.

“Our record-setting fundraising pace has been fueled by grassroots enthusiasm for President Trump and the Republican Party,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel said in a statement.

“The RNC is in a strong position to make an impact in key races in 2017 and 2018 as we plan to take a leading role in preserving our congressional majorities and prepare to reelect President Trump in 2020.”

The RNC said it brought in $12.2 million in March, breaking its record for biggest haul in the March after a presidential race. The committee has $41.4 million total cash on hand.
RNC Finance Chairman Steve Wynn said the robust totals are proof voters approve of Trump leading GOP majorities in both chambers of Congress.

“Americans across the country are expressing their belief that their best chance for a better life in our country is with continued Republican control of the House, Senate and the White House under President Trump,” he said.
