Smear campaigns against Rick Scott start just as he pulls ahead in the polls

Florida has a penchant for tight races. This year is no different with both the gubernatorial and Senate races polling within the margin of error to be considered a toss up. In the latter race, Governor Rick Scott just pulled ahead of Senator Bill Nelson.

On cue, mainstream media and the leftist blogosphere started rallying for Nelson. First, the New York Times posted a highly biased article claiming Scott’s blind trust was blind in name only. The accusatory headline is damaging but the story itself only reveals that he may have been able to see where his money was going if he jumped through a few hoops. It did not show he took advantage of these hoops and there are no indications that he did.

Then, The Young Turks pieced together a “gotcha’ moment when members of a financial firm donated to a pro-Scott superPAC. Then, the state’s pension system invested using the financial firm. Scott is a trustee. Here’s the thing, though. Scott has no influence on how money is invested.

“Neither the Trustees nor their appointed members to the Investment Advisory Council (IAC) are involved in the selection of investments,” SBA spokesman John Kuczwanki told The Young Turks. “Any suggestion that politics influenced the SBA’s investment decision on the Cerberus FSBA Levered Loan Opportunities Fund is baseless and without merit.”

Despite the honesty of the rebuttals, mainstream media and the leftist blogosphere are operating with the singular goal of stopping as many Republicans from winning on election day as possible. There is no merit to either allegation, but it’s easy for the left to distort and confuse just enough to make an uninformed voter question Scott’s integrity.

Florida is better following Scott’s stint as governor. Florida and America will be better off with Scott over Nelson in the Senate.

Democrats and their media proxies count on a majority of people not understanding how blind trusts and pension investments work. They insinuate corruption where none exists in hopes that most won’t see the truth.

Anthony Derlunas, who yelled ‘Heil Hitler, Heil Trump,’ is a Trump-hating leftist

Anthony Derlunas who yelled Heil Hitler Heil Trump is a Trump-hating leftist

Mainstream media went to great extremes to make people believe Anthony Derlunas is a Trump supporter who was spreading his antisemitic message because he’s a Republican voter. When it was revealed he yelled. “Heil Hitler, Heil Trump,” during a performance of Fiddler on the Roof because he was triggered and actually hated Trump, mainstream media suddenly went silent on the story.

That’s what happens when a leftist narrative is broken. It gets buried, distorted, or outright lied about by the press. They love their narratives. They hate anything that proves their narratives wrong.

Moonbattery The MSM’s Anthony Derlunas Hate Hoax

https://moonbattery.com/the-msms-anthony-derlunas-hate-hoax/The hyperpartisan “mainstream” media has never been more dishonest than since the horrific shootings at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, as it attempts incongruously yet determinedly to tie anti-Semitism around Donald Trump’s neck. Flawed reporting reached hate hoax levels in light of a moonbat named Anthony Derlunas screaming “Heil Hitler! Heil Trump!” at a Baltimore performance of Fiddler on the Roof. Since it is hard to find anything but moonbattery elsewhere, we turn to One America for the story.

President Trump reacts to Jim Acosta’s press pass decision: ‘Not a big deal’

President Trump reacts to Jim Acostas press pass decision Not a big deal

He’s right. This isn’t a big deal. CNN’s Jim Acosta should never have had his hard pass revoked in the first place, either. That made it a bigger deal than it really ought to be. But it happened and now a temporary order has been placed by a judge.

What does this mean for future press conferences? A lot. What does it mean for the 1st Amendment? Not so much. It’s a blow to the President and a win for the free press, but this won’t be an issue that will ever come up again.

It shouldn’t have come up in the first place.

Some are asking why the White House needs to publish rules of decorum for the press when they weren’t needed before. That’s just it. They weren’t needed before. This is a different President, but it’s also a different press.

Luis Cobos-Cenobio, the star of the Arkansas dashcam shootout, is an illegal immigrant

Luis Cobos-Cenobio the star of the Arkansas dash cam shootout is an illegal immigrant

It’s an odd headline. The lede in this story should the shocking dashcam footage showing suspect Luis Cobos-Cenobio firing on police who were trying to pull him over. Unfortunately, immigration status is either buried or ignored altogether by mainstream media, so we thought it was necessary to point out up front that the man who allegedly tried to shoot and kill police officers is an illegal immigrant.

You can read the details at Fox News, one of the only outlets I’ve found so far that mentions his immigration status:

Dashcam video shows moment illegal immigrant suspect opens fire on Arkansas police officer

https://www.foxnews.com/us/dashcam-video-shows-moment-illegal-immigrant-suspect-opens-fire-on-arkansas-police-officerCobos-Cenobio has been jailed on $500,000 bond, and has had a detainer placed on him by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, an agency spokesperson confirmed to Fox News.

Cobos-Cenobio has been charged with four counts of attempted capital murder, committing a terroristic act, fleeing, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to police.

If he is convicted on any or all of these charges, he’s going to jail for a long time. There’s no way to know at this point how many Americans he’s harmed in the past. Sadly, as a criminal illegal immigrant, there’s no reason for him to be here in the first place.

Mainstream media doesn’t want you to know that part of the story, though. Some went so far as to avoid the topic altogether.

For example, this article from ABC News is nearly 400-words in length and never even hints at his immigration status. Many stories simply noted as deep into the article as possible that he had a “federal hold” or “detainer request” without indicating that almost certainly means he’s here illegally.

Mainstream media is desperate to bury or cover up anything that pertains to illegal immigrants. This story, with its amazing and terrifying video, was too “good” for them to pass up. That didn’t stop them from hiding his immigration status.
