NBC Fake News White House “Reporter” Lies about Republican Support for Impeachment

By Nicholas Stix

Minutes ago, reporting from the Capitol, White House “Reporter” Kristen Welker noted that Democrats were divided on the question of impeachment—even uncritically quoting NYC Cong. Jerrold Nadler (NYC-Khmer Rouge) asserting that the Barr report stated that Pres. Trump was guilty of obstruction—before telling the following whopper:
“Increasing numbers of establishment Republicans say impeachment cannot be taken off the table, such as Rep. Elijah Cummings.”
As Welker well knows, Rep. Elijah Cummings is a high-ranking, racist, black Democrat.

She purposely said the opposite of the truth, in order to plant the notion in the audience’s mind that both parties support impeachment. The reality is that the Communists, er, Democrats are split, while there is virtually no support among Republicans for impeachment.

Had Welker made an innocent mistake, she would have instantly corrected herself, either because she immediately realized what she’d done, or a producer had shouted a correction into her earpiece. That instant correction did not come.

Who lies the most?Black rappers or NBC news?As they say in horse racing,"too close to call,"or a"photo finish".
I'm calling it a "dead heat"--no difference,indistinguishable.
I said,"you can't take what rappers say seriously."
Same with NBC,which with Lesta Holt as the anchor and overseer of what gets out on his national "Negro Nightly News," has discarded fact based reporting(which used to occur as recently as the Tom Brokaw days) and replaced it with opinions and unnamed sources.
The pendulum started to swing with known exaggerator Brian Williams,and became extreme with Holt in 2016.The only goal now,is to say whatever it takes to get viewers to vote Democratic in 2020.
That's it.Incite,lie,invent stories--all to defeat Trump and white people's America (what's left of it).
White reporters in the old days(Jim Miklaszewski,Tom Pettit come to mind)would have quit NBC if they saw then,how NBC operates today.
A complete and utter fall from the days when NBC was respected and could be relied on to,"get it right."
Black rappers(or blacks in general) have no conscience to tell the truth--and neither does NBC News,it appears.

(FOXNEWS)The Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday removed a statue of late singer Kate Smith that stood outside their arena for more than three decades, the move coming two days after the team covered the monument in response to complaints about two tunes the "God Bless America" singer performed in the 1930s.

The Flyers had covered the statue and suspended playing her famous rendition of the patriotic song Friday. The Flyers decision followed a similar one made recently by the New York Yankees, who for 18 years had played the recording during the seventh inning stretch. Smith's statue had stood near the Philadelphia sports complex since 1987.


“The NHL principle 'Hockey is for Everyone' is at the heart of everything the Flyers stand for,” team president Paul Holmgren said in a statement. “As a result, we cannot stand idle while material from another era gets in the way of who we are today.”

Smith, who died in 1986 at age 79, was long considered an American icon, in large part because of her association with "God Bless America," the 1918 Irving Berlin song she recorded in 1939. She received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1982.

Recently, however, the Yankees reportedly became aware Smith sang a popular 1931 song, “That’s Why Darkies Were Born.” The tune, originally written for a Broadway revue and later referenced in a Marx Brothers flick, featured lyrics such as: “Someone had to pick the cotton, Someone had to pick the corn, Someone had to slave and be able to sing, That’s why darkies were born.” Ray Henderson and Lew Brown wrote the song. Smith did not contribute words or music.

The song was considered a satire of racism in its time, with civil rights activist Paul Robeson also having recorded a version.

Detractors also note Smith recorded a song called "Pickaninny Heaven" -- with "pickaninny" being a racial slur for a black child -- and point to Smith's likeness appearing in an ad for baking powder that featured a "mammy" character.

The Flyers had played Smith’s version of “God Bless America” before must-win games since 1969, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported, and its record in those games was a stellar 101-31-5. She performed her rendition in person before the team captured its Stanley Cup in 1974.

The Yankees pulled "God Bless America" earlier this season after being informed about the questionable Broadway song, the New York Post reported.
GRA:Of course if white hockey fans in Philly--and that's 99.9% of them--don't take this opportunity to make a stand and boycott this ridiculously PC decision by Holmgren,then they get what they deserve,a club that gives in to outside politics to decide what the fans should honor.Kate Smith was an icon and legend in her day.The crowds would explode in loud cheers after she sang in person before big games.
Now,because of a couple songs sung in a different era,she is banned.When will Ben Franklin,Washington or any other early white political historical figures be removed from Philly for something that might be interpreted as racist?You can bet,if they haven't found it yet,"someone"(liberal/black group)is looking.

GRA:A sensible viewpoint about removing the Kate Smith statue:
By Clay Travis,outkick the
This week the New York Yankees stopped playing a rendition of “God Bless America” by a woman who raised hundreds of millions of dollars to help defeat Adolf Hitler’s Germany. And the Philadelphia Flyers covered up her statue outside their arena.


Because a disgruntled activist emailed the two teams that Kate Smith, the singer of the recorded “God Bless America,” song was potentially racist based on the lyrics to songs she sang back in the 1930’s. The songs, which are considered satire by many — that is, they existed to humorously ridicule racism in the 1930’s, not glorify it according to many – were frequently sung by famous singers both black and white in the 1930s.

But that doesn’t matter.

Smith, who has been dead since 1986, and was awarded the presidential medal of freedom by Ronald Reagan in 1982, was an accused bigot with no ability to defend herself against the accusation.

Even though, you know, according to her New York Times obituary: “No single show-business figure even approached her as a seller of War Bonds during World War II. In one 18-hour stint on the CBS radio network, Miss Smith sold $107 million worth of war bonds, which were issued by the United States Government to finance the war effort. Her total for a series of marathon broadcasts was over $600 million.”

Now six hundred million dollars is, plainly, a lot of money no matter when it was raised, but since we’re taking old actions and putting them in a modern day context that $600 million Smith raised to fight Hitler in World War II would equate to nearly $11 billion dollars in today’s money.

$11 billion!

Smith also traveled over 520,000 miles to entertain American troops serving overseas and battling Hitler.

But none of that history matters because if someone emails a nearly hundred year old allegation of racism in 2019 we have to immediately pretend that accused person never existed and erase them from public life.

Don’t believe me?

The Philadelphia Flyers didn’t just ban the playing of Smith’s singing they covered Kate Smith’s statue in the parking lot outside their venue as you can see from the above photo.

Seriously, this happened in 2019.

How scary is this? A couple of people email a team allegations and the next thing you know the team tries to erase that individual’s existence.

For those who ask why a story like this matters, it’s because of the precedent that’s being set. When you respond in this manner to a social justice warrior allegation, you don’t put out the fire of their outrage, you encourage it to continue and move on to the next target.

These perpetually aggrieved and offended people are never happy and satisfied, they just move on to the next outrage and repeat the process over and over again.
GRA:I went looking for fan reaction and found this essay.Here's hoping the viewpoint expressed, is representative of other fans and the decision to erase Kate Smith from existence,is reversed(I have my doubts).

(FOX17NEWS)GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Grand Rapids officials are considering an ordinance that would make it a crime to racially profile minorities and call police for living their lives.

Nationwide, police receive 911 calls about people of color for things like selling lemonade, having a family cookout or a graduation party.

Grand Rapids is no exception.

“Police were called on a graduation party in one of the parks and it was an African American family,” said Patti Caudill, Grand Rapids diversity and inclusion manager. “Police were called because it got, according to some folks, loud in a city park. Was that because of bias?
(Interesting,another story being reported today,was a murder Saturday night at a party in the ghetto.All black parties have the potential for a)loud noise b)drugs and c)gunplay.)

“I don’t know, but we want to make sure that people are allowed to live their lives.”
(GRA:And if the blacks interfere with MY life,I'm calling the police,landlord and neighborhood association,in that order--which I've done.)
The city says the ordinance isn’t to discourage citizens from calling 911 about possible crimes, but to ask them to check their biases before dialing.
(GRA:Loud is loud.I'll call the cops on blacks,Mex,Indians,Muslims and redneck whites as well.Most decent whites,you don't have to worry about.)

It would also train police and dispatchers to ask questions about why a call is being made.

“The idea is that residents are thinking through what they’re doing before they make a phone call, and when there are people that are going to be using the police department to move forward with discriminatory practices that there’s some way to stop that,” said said Jeremy DeRoo, Linc Up executive director.

Grand Rapids would be the first city in the state to pass this type of ordinance, which could lead to a $500 fine for someone who unnecessarily calls police.
(GRA:How about that?And you KNOW examples will be made of certain whites and publicized on TV to make sure that whites get the word,"nigs are to be treated with kid gloves.")
A public comment period for the proposed ordinance will happen at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the city commission meeting on the ninth floor of City Hall.

The last point I'll make about the Yankees and Philly banning Kate Smith is this:The Yankees were part of a group of teams that didn't ALLOW blacks to play in the American League until 1949--yet they still exist--they are not banned or are being removed from New York City as punishment.Philadelphia is part of a league(NHL)that can count on one hand,the number of blacks that have skated on its ice in the league's 102 year history.
The NHL started in 1917,Kate Smith sang her now controversial song in 1931.Zero blacks were playing in those days.What's the penalty that should be inflicted on the NHL now for that decision?
None,the same as what the deceased Ms Smith should receive.If the league gets pass,so should Kate Smith.
Accept what happened as history--not current events and shut the f**k up.

Any Republican voting in the House for impeachment if and when such a vote occurs needs to be followed the rest of their life and made as miserable as possible.
