CNN producer caught admitting media’s on ‘witch hunt’ against Trump

A CNN producer acknowledged in an undercover video that the cable news network has been creating fake news against President Trump for the past five months.

In a video released by Project Veritas, CNN supervising producer John Bonifield admitted that stories about Russia colluding with the Trump administration have no factual proof. Bonifield has worked for CNN as a journalist and producer for 15 years.

As TMZ reported, "Bonifield says CNN doesn't have the goods, but its nonstop coverage (about Russia) is all about attracting viewers. ... It’s being covered to death for ratings."

Produced and narrated by James O'Keefe, founder of Project Veritas, the video indicates that CNN makes news decisions to cater to their liberal viewers. "Our goal is to expose the real motivations behind the decision-making process at our dominant media corporations," he said.

A Project Veritas journalist visited Bonifield and videoed their conversation about bias and corruption within the mainstream media.

Trump: ‘We worship God … We will not back down from doing what is right’

Our rights come from God, President Trump told an evangelical conservative crowd this week, and no one on Earth can take them away.

Trump also stated it is God whom Americans worship -- not government.

Family is the foundation of American life, he said as well, and families and churches -- not government officials -- know best how to create a strong and loving community.  

"We know that parents, not bureaucrats, know best how to raise children and create a thriving society," Trump stated. "And above all else, we know this: In America, we don’t worship government. We worship God."  

Trump addressed the opening day of the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority Conference on Thursday in Washington, D.C.

His remarks drew applause at the gathering as he mentioned God and faith numerous times, and also focused heavily on religious liberty.

Faith and freedom are linked because "liberty comes from our Creator," the president said, "Our rights are given to us by a divine authority, and no earthly force can ever take those rights away."

Trump Becomes First Sitting U.S. President to Visit Western Wall

https://www.facebook.com/ChristiansUnitedforIsrael/photos/a.58091114813.64770.24014374813/10155310777489814/?type=3&theaterPresident Donald Trump placed a note in the Western Wall in Jerusalem on Monday, becoming the first sitting U.S. president to visit one of Judaism's holiest sites.

Trump later called it a "great honor" to visit the wall, saying, "I can see a much deeper path, friendship with Israel."

The historic visit is part of Trump's efforts to highlight "the need for unity among three of the world's great religions" on his first foreign trip, senior administration officials said.

Trump's stop at the Western Wall came between Sunday's trip to Saudi Arabia, where he called on Muslim leaders to "drive out the terrorists and extremists" from their lands and his forthcoming visit with Pope Francis at the Vatican.

At the Western Wall, Trump, wearing a black yarmulke, stood alone with his hand on the wall for several moments before tucking a note deep between the cracks.

Paris Climate Accord is "smug liberal virtue signalling"

https://www.google.ca/search?biw=1920&bih=925&tbm=isch&sa=1&q=donald+paris+accord&oq=donald+paris+accord&gs_l=psy-ab.3...5505.12476.0.12595.7.7.0.0.0.0.97.468.7.7.0....0...1.1.64.psy-ab..0.1.77...0i8i30k1j0i5i30k1.OYvKJhCtqy4#imgrc=O-cLvTKY-4f4RM:Donald Trump did exactly what he said he was going to do. He pulled the United States out of the multilateral treaty on climate change, also known as the Paris Agreement.

Trump did the right thing for American workers, and perhaps counter-intuitively he did the right thing for the environment. Let’s be clear: the Paris Agreement was never about the environment.

The framework for Paris is based on an alarmist interpretation of climate data, and focuses not on the largest emitters of carbon dioxide but instead on the richest emitters.

The scheme uses an invented concept -- carbon intensity -- meaning carbon emissions as a percentage of GDP.

It therefore disproportionately punishes wealthy emitters, like Canada and the United States, while allowing China and India to continue emitting more carbon dioxide each year until at least 2030 -- the year they chose for their commitment to kick in.

As Trump rightly acknowledged, this scheme would specifically and disproportionately punish the United States. It was a bad deal for American workers and American companies.

Good for Donald Trump for standing up to this nonsense.

House Passes Obamacare Repeal, Planned Parenthood Defund Bill

The United States House of Representatives passed legislation on Thursday that would repeal Obamacare and block federal Medicaid funds from going to the nation's largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood.

By a vote of 217 to 213, the House narrowly passed the highly debated American Health Care Act, with 20 Republicans voting against the legislation and no Democrats voting for it.

According to The Washington Post, if the health care bill is passed, Planned Parenthood would lose about 30 percent of its total revenue because it would be blocked from receiving Medicaid reimbursement funds for a year unless its hundreds of clinics stop offering abortion.
