"Um, the Uh, Uh": Hillary Staffer Stammers While Defending Clinton "Videos" Attack on Trump

By Rick Pearcey • December 21, 2015, 10:40 AM

David Rutz reports at FoxNews.com:

Hillary Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri struggled Sunday to defend her boss' claim that videos of Donald Trump's anti-Muslim rhetoric were being used as recruitment tools for the Islamic State.

Appearing on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos, Palmieri appeared uncomfortable backing Clinton's claim at Saturday's debate that fact-checkers from the New York Post and PolitiFact have debunked.  

"Um, the uh, uh, you know, Donald Trump, I think, was talking–uh, you know, what Secretary Clinton was saying last night is that one of the many dangerous things about Donald Trump is that, uh, his hot rhetoric, saying we shouldn't allow Muslim refugees into the country, is being used, and this is something that [an international group] has, who monitors social media and uh, on ISIS, has said --" the Clinton staffer is quoted as saying "before Stephanopoulos cut in," according to Fox News.

"But there have been no videos," Fox quotes Stephanopoulos as saying.

"Well, what they have said is that they are using him -- he is being used in social media by ISIS as propaganda," Palmieri reportedly said "sounding almost out of breath." Fox reports.

Hillary Clitnon "didn’t have a particular video in mind, but he's being used in social media, and uh, you know, what they haven't found is the video Mr. Trump keeps talking about, this alleged mystery video of thousands of people in Jersey cheering the collapse of the World Trade Center. But it is true he is being used in social media by, um, ISIS, to, to help recruit and propaganda," Palmieri said, according to Fox.

“But to be clear, you don’t have a video, as she said," Stephanopoulos stated, Fox reports (emphasis added).

Meanwhile, "She's" -- that is, Hillary Clinton's -- "a liar and everybody knows that," Donald Trump said Sunday on Meet the Press, in response to Clinton's accusation made during Saturday evening's Democrat debate, Newsmax reports.

Cruz to Hannity: How About GOP Debate With Hannity, Levin, and Limbaugh as Moderators? -- Video

By Rick Pearcey • October 29, 2015, 01:41 PM

In this video clip of Sean Hannity discussing with Ted Cruz last night's CNBC debate debacle (see "Corrupt Media: CNBC Bias Loses the Republican Debate"), Cruz makes the case that a GOP presidential primary debate would be better served with Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, and Rush Limbaugh as moderators.

"In my view, Republican primary debates ought to be moderated by people who would vote in a primary," the Texas senator says to Hannity in the above-mentioned clip.

"How about a debate moderated by Sean Hannity and Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh?" Cruz says.

"I'm in," Hannity replies. "And I think I can speak for the other three. They're in as well."

My view: A Hannity-Levin-Limbaugh moderated debate would be a blockbuster ratings event and a highly productive, informative evening. I'm in, too. Let's do it.

Democrat Debate Tonight -- Donald Trump to Live-Tweet

By Rick Pearcey • October 13, 2015, 10:11 AM

Trump Tweets: "At the request of many, and even though I expect it to be a very boring two hours, I will be covering the Democrat Debate live on Twitter!"

It goes without saying that Trump's live-Tweet coverage of the debate will be the best coverage of anything by anyone, ever.

Down the Memory Hole? Question About Jeb Bush's Planned Parenthood Funding Disappears From Debate Transcripts

By Rick Pearcey • August 10, 2015, 02:42 PM

Ben Johnson reports at LifeSiteNews.com:

Journalists have long refused to report the negative side of the abortion industry. Now, the mainstream media have been accused of going one step further: removing mentions of Planned Parenthood funding from the transcripts of the first Republican presidential debate.

Megyn Kelly asked Jeb Bush a probing question about his decision to serve nearly five years on a philanthropy that gave millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood, during the Fox News Channel's prime time debate on Thursday. Yet all trace of that question has disappeared from numerous "full" debate transcripts posted by the nation's foremost media websites.

"Jeb Bush served as a founding director of the Bloomberg Family Foundation (now known as the Bloomberg Philanthropies) from 2010 until the end of 2014. While he was responsible for providing oversight, the tax-exempt foundation announced a $50 million family planning grant that included a global partnership with Planned Parenthood to overturn pro-life laws around the world," LifeSiteNews reports.

Kelly asked Bush: "How could you not know about these well-publicized donations? And if you did know, how could you help a charity so openly committed to abortion rights?"

Rather than answer Kelly's question, "Bush responded by speaking about his pro-life record as governor of Florida," Johnson reports for LifeSiteNews. And "when asked a second time, Bush replied, 'I didn’t know, but it doesn’t matter',"

But, of course, it does matter.

"Last Friday night, several members of a voters panel told Kelly that they did not believe Bush was telling the truth about not knowing about the grants," LifeSiteNews reports.

In addition, according to LifeSiteNews, one person on the panel "said that if Jeb did not know, it was a major oversight." Another panelist said Bush "flat-out lied," LifeSiteNews reports. 

And yet, "despite the audience's reaction and two days of sustained coverage on Fox, the question does not appear in debate transcripts posted online by The Washington Post, CBS News, and Time magazine," LifeSiteNews reports.
