Keith Olbermann offers feeble apology for calling to make the rest of Hunter Waltman’s life a living hell

Published

Keith Olbermann calls on his Twitter followers to make the rest of Hunter Waltmans life is a living

Update: After keeping the post up for 12 hours and issuing an apology, he finally took it down. Here’s his feeble apology. It is also untruthful, since the only possible intent was exactly what he claimed he wasn’t trying to do.

Original Story:

When I first saw the Tweet, I assumed Twitter would have it deleted very quickly, if not Keith Olbermann himself deleting it following the backlash. As of six hours following the Tweet, it’s still there.

I’m sure many reports have been filed against this clear call to organize harassment and harm to an individual. I filed one. But so far, nothing from Twitter. Nothing from Olbermann. Only reports from the victim, Hunter Waltman:

“I didn’t like the idea of that too much,” Waltman said. “I don’t think a lot of people would like to be called out on social media like that, especially (by someone) with so many followers.

“They text me all kinds of stuff. If he (Olbermann) hadn’t done that, none of this would have happened.”

We’ll continue monitoring this incident and will update the story when something happens, either through Olbermann, Twitter, or neither.

FBI tried to hide true source of Trump-Russia allegations

FBI tried to hide true source of Trump-Russia allegations

The more we learn about the Russian investigation, the clearly it becomes that this was a political hack job perpetrated by people bent on subverting American voters, not exposing interference from the Russians. While it’s true Russians have been engaged in causing division within and distrust of our political system, the investigation into their activities was wrongly focused on the Trump campaign when they should have been looking on the other side of the fence.

This video by Declassified’s Gina Shakespeare explains a report by The Epoch Times’ Brian Cates:

In researching this Spygate scandal, I repeatedly encounter stories of people supposedly engaged in very sensitive intelligence and law enforcement work, who rely on people such as Christopher Steele and end up leaking the same “evidence” to the news media.

This isn’t how real intelligence work is done.

And that’s the first big clue that none of these Spygate investigations were authentic.

Federal officials knew quite well the true nature of the sources they were using to drive these politically motivated investigations.

Their sources were political operatives being handsomely paid to target their employer’s political opponents. Because of that, any “evidence” they handed to federal agencies should have been immediately suspect and huge red flags should have been raised.

But any attempts to raise red flags were quashed. This was a hit job. It was intended to take down then-candidate Trump if possible. In fact, one can argue that their confidence in Hillary Clinton’s ability to win was the only reason they didn’t use the investigation to tip the scales in her favor. They likely thought something to the effect of, Why play a dangerous hand that’s unnecessary?”

Obama’s DoJ and the operatives in the FBI investigating the Trump campaign were well aware what they were doing was wrong, at least from a legal and investigative perspective. But they felt the stakes were high enough that it was worth pursuing. There were two intentions here. If it appeared Clinton was in trouble and risked losing, they could unleash information from the tainted investigation, putting themselves at risk but helping Clinton win. If it appeared she would coast to victory, they would hold information from the investigation and use it as a “plan B” in case Trump miraculously won.

Well, he miraculously won, so once their chagrin had worn off, they went to work to lay the foundation for the Mueller investigation in hopes it would quickly force the President to resign or give Congress the ammunition it needed to impeach him. It did neither.

This is a cover-up of a failed coup attempt. People in power at the FBI and DoJ engaged in an investigation they knew was fabricated, yet they continued in an unhinged effort to prevent Trump’s presidency if possible or end it if necessary.

Journalist tries to buy a gun at Walmart, learns it’s harder than she thought

Journalist tries to buy a gun at Walmart learns its harder than she thought

Hayley Peterson seems to be an honest journalist. This is rare in the hyper-tribal state of modern media in which news reports almost always push an agenda first, reporting the news second and only as a necessary platform for the aforementioned agenda. With the majority of journalists leaning left, this often means attaching to the Democrats’ agenda on gun control, open borders, and other pressing issues ahead of the 2020 election.

Business Insider, which is rated as “left-center” by Media Bias/Fact Check, has been building a reputation as a reliable news source after spending a few years trying to match Vox and Buzzfeed. Today, their bias is mild and their reporting is usually honest, as is the case with Peterson’s report on buying a firearm from Walmart…

…or at least trying to.

This is an interesting read for those who may be considering purchasing a firearm from Walmart or anywhere else as it highlights a few of the pitfalls that can be avoided. As an expert on Walmart, Peterson has regularly covered their employees’ campaigns to force the retail giant to stop selling firearms altogether, but this was her first foray into trying to actually buy a gun. In short, it’s not as easy as many politicians try to paint it as being with requirements for background checks and necessities for licensed personnel present that we rarely hear about in the media.

I tried to buy a gun at Walmart twice, and roadblocks left me empty-handed both times

I went to Walmart with the intention of buying a gun last week as part of an investigation into the placement, selection, marketing, and security of firearms in Walmart’s stores, and to learn more about the retailer’s processes governing gun sales.

My journey to bring a gun home from Walmart turned out to be far more complicated than I expected.

Business Insider or Haley Peterson could have easily scrapped or reframed the story to perpetuate the trend of “Walmart sell gun bad.” Instead, they delivered an honest, albeit still slightly biased, representation of her experience.

How many times is the left going to claim the ground is shifting in the gun debate?

How many times is the left going to claim the ground is shifting in the gun debate

While Cory Booker is channeling George Orwell, once again the ground has supposedly shifted on Liberty Control.

Good news, the Left has come up with some ‘new’ memes in their synthesized self-righteous condemnation of Liberty in the midst of a ‘Serious Crisis’. Anyone on social media will recognize this all too familiar pattern that will begin the moment the news breaks of a tragedy they can exploit:

  • The Left will immediately politicize the pain of others – while projecting that on everyone else.
  • ‘Thoughts and Prayers’ are then mercilessly mocked.
  • It will be said that the defenders of Liberty ‘have blood on our hands’.
  • Then the calls to ‘do something!’ – anything, whether it will solve the problem or not.
  • Further restrictions on civil liberties are the made by opportunistic politicians.
  • Demands for laws that already exist on Background checks or Civil commitment.
  • While other Leftists make more demands for gun confiscation.
  • As emotions subside, entreaties for compromise emerge.

This is usually the end stage of the crisis sequence, after all of the juvenile invectives hurled by the Left, after all of the demands that we ‘turn in our guns’, after all of the exposition on how our basic human rights are to be controlled – by them. The national socialist left will realize they won’t be able to bully us into giving up our basic civil liberties. Hence, they will look to exploit something – anything – out of the ‘crisis’, they will try to force us into a compromise whereby they give up nothing and we move down the slippery slope to gun confiscation once more.

Afterwards, any ‘compromises’ or ‘bipartisan’ agreements that restrict the human rights of the innocent will inevitably fail to work. Then when another tragedy takes place the whole sequence begins once again. Existing laws will be ignored in lieu of new laws that do the same thing – while denigrating liberty in the process. This is ‘progress’ to the national socialist Left, seeing each ‘serious crisis’ as an opportunity they can exploit for political gain while never addressing the true causes of these tragedies.

The ‘new’ momentum meme addition to the same old crisis exploitation of the left.

A ‘new’ aspect of the debate has the ground shifting more than the San Andreas Fault. Leftists love their euphemisms, using every kind of synonym for confiscation they can muster. The ground shift meme is no exception, with endless variations that essentially try to exploit the same idea over and over. The problem is that the ground shift meme is only viable once. Then it becomes just one more piece of useless rhetoric thrown out into the ether. The ‘blood on hands’ accusation was the same at one point, now it’s just a pathetic attempt by the left to exploit a crisis they created.

From December 2012 [7 years ago]:

December 17th, 2012

Capitol Hill ground may be shifting on gun control .

New polls suggest elementary school shootings may be changing public opinion.

From last year:

March 1, 2018
Fla. Dem: ‘The ground is really shifting’ on gun control.

Apr 9, 2018
Pa. legislature becomes test bed for shifting sands on gun control.

December 26, 2018
2018 Brought A ‘Tectonic Shift’ In The Gun Control Movement, Advocates Say.

Then this year:

April 24, 2019
Democrats Shed Fear of Gun Control in Momentous Shift Entering 2020 Election.

August 4, 2019
Dayton and El Paso Shift Focus to Gun Control and Racism.

August 20, 2019
The political battle lines on guns are shifting.

It getting to the point that these pieces are merely wishcasting by the Liberty Grabbers hoping to move something that isn’t there.

Cory Booker channeling George Orwell.

It’s one thing to reuse the same meme over and over while trying to pretend it’s brand new, it’s quite another to try and sell socialistic slavery as ‘freedom’. Yes, there is nothing like taking away some people’s basic human rights to make them ‘free’.  In this case it’s everyone’s favorite political ambulance chaser from New Jersey, Cory Booker, trying to sell the idea that fear is supposed to justify the restriction of the common sense civil Liberty of self-defense. Eliminating fear from modern life would of course be impossible and there is no end to the rationalization of government control that could be used with this absurd pretext.

Apparently he thinks that the government and criminals having a monopoly on the use of force will serve to protect liberty because reasons. Since we all know how criminals and governments scrupulously follow the law, he has the perfect solution to the problem. Sadly because of what the left has done to the culture, we are witness to some more of these tragedies. Statistics show that thankfully these are decreasing and there are ways to solve the problem without restricting Liberty.

Unfortunately, the left has a very myopic view of the situation, only seeing opportunities for them to exploit rather than problems to be solved. Perhaps it is time to leave them out of the conversation and consider real reforms that will save lives instead of destroying Liberty.

One final word.

We of the Pro-Liberty Right need to start using one word when it comes to the Authoritarian Socialist Left’s demands that we incrementally give up our common sense human rights. We have compromised over and over without so much as an acknowledgement or thanks from the left, much less any type of compromise on their part.

There are ways to solve this problem without punishing the innocent and confiscating their private property. These need to be considered to solve this societal problem instead of focusing on inanimate objects. As for the Left’s incessant demands that we give up our basic human rights, we only need this one word response: NO!    [Repeat as many times as necessary]
