Hillary Clinton Says “Fake News” Costs Lives

clinton-mad-2By Kurt Nimmo

Defeated presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has come out swinging in the fake news war.

From The Washington Post, the centerpiece of the CIA’s Operation Mockingbird, the effort to turn corporate media into a “Mighty Wurlitzer” of national security state propaganda:

Hillary Clinton challenged Congress on Thursday to combat fake and misleading news on social media, using a post-election appearance to tackle an issue that gripped her presidential campaign and culminated with a shooting incident Sunday in Northwest Washington.

Without directly citing the shooting at Comet Ping Pong by a man who believed a false online conspiracy related to her campaign, Clinton said the “epidemic of malicious fake news and false propaganda that flooded social media” presented a danger to both the nation’s politics and the safety of its citizens.

“It’s now clear that so-called fake news can have real-world consequences. This isn’t about politics or partisanship. Lives are at risk, lives of ordinary people just trying to go about their days, to do their jobs, contribute to their communities,” Clinton said during an address that was otherwise meant as a tribute to retiring Senate Minority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.).

We know by now “fake news,” with a few notable exceptions—like The Onion and scams by Macedonian opportunists—is in fact alternative news that challenges and often refutes and debunks the lies and half-truths of the establishment media.

Clinton is spewing more propaganda. She said the debate is not about politics. It most certainly is. Clinton and the establishment are exploiting baseless allegations made by an anonymous website in an effort to minimize and ultimately destroy the political influence of those of us opposed to the establishment, its endless wars, its massive corruption and thievery, and its disastrous manipulation of the economy and monetary policy.

Clinton argues truth news puts lives at risk. She does not elaborate but it can be assumed she is talking about the armed individual who went into a pizza parlor said to be part of an alleged pedo and human trafficking ring.

Hypocrisy is epidemic these days. The fake news put out by the State Department and the corporate media about Libya and Syria has so far cost thousands of lives, 30,000 in Libya alone.

  1. she should know…

  2. FAKE NEWS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    “I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be
    some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran
    with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.”

    –Hillary Clinton, speech at George Washington University, March 17, 2008

    • According to her behaviour after all this sniper fire I’d say, she still is “in shock”.

      That was the question of Russia/Mr. Putin before the UN Assemblee last year when he asked.”Do you realize what you have done?”.

  3. Thank you, Kurt.

    Hillary and the rest of them are attempting to hold up their black reflecting mirrors of duplicity on this one, by calling us what they know we’ve called them out accurately for. We’ve hit a nerve, and this is a very good thing; it means we’re making progress and they’re panicking which is also good because when they panic they make mistakes. Please everyone pass the following quote around everywhere you see them whining/lying/projecting about us being “fake news”. Directly from the horse’s mouth, and no, John Kerry didn’t write this, a NYT journalist did over 100 years ago:

    “The business of journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.” John Swinton, 1830 – 1901, Former chief-of-staff New York Times.

    • Good one, Grace by Faith! Here’s one over 200 years old, from Jefferson.

      “The most effectual engines for [pacifying a nation] are the public papers…government always [keeps] a standing army of newswriters who, without any regard to truth, put into the papers whatever might serve the ministers.”

  5. America has always had main stream fake news. It’s been a main player, with Britain, France and Holland, killing billions. It’s a nation run by the depraved in a run to a new Jerusalem of the owners desires since it was “discovered”. It’s indoctrination is (and has been) pure bullshit to ensure the direction the world has taken. Defense IS Offense, Slavery IS Freedom, Wrong IS Right and Immoral is the new Moral.

  6. sinking of the Maine, sinking of the Lusitania, Pearl Harbor, Gulf of Tonkin, Weapons of mass destruction… Fake news that cost a few million lives.

  7. ‘Clinton is spewing more propaganda.’
    “It’s now clear that so-called fake news can have real-world consequences. This isn’t about politics or partisanship. Lives are at risk, lives of ordinary people just trying to go about their days, to do their jobs, contribute to their communities,” Clinton said.

    Yes she did spew.

    @John_Smith001:disqus Agreed. I especially point out many committed suicide around the Clinton family by mysteriously shooting themselves in the back of the head. Luckily for these poor souls they shot themselves before those dastardly killer ninja tree assassins could ambush them, pardon the pun.

    @GraceViaFaith:disqus Excellent reminder quote you post.

    @blue579:disqus Ah, another excellent one.

  8. She speaks fakery.
    Probably attended some school teaching them to lie without thought.

    • She was an acolyte of Saul Alinksy who wrote Rules For Radicals, no kidding. If you look it up on a search, you’ll be amazed at the open audacity, The mindset is mendacity and agitation is acceptable under “the end justifies the means”.

  9. “Fake news cost lives ”

    And what about all the lives that you were responsible for , on the fake information you gave ,that led to war in Libya

  10. The fake news is saying to get your flu shot and MMR vaccine due the mumps outbreak. I hope she got all her shots, because we all want her to be safe. The CDC says they’re proven safe. the 100,000+ deaths a year is a conspiracy theory.

  11. It seems to me Hillary Clinton should be the very last person in this country to complain about “Fake News” killing people. Ann Coulter is right when she said, “If you want to know what the Democrats are doing, just look at what they are accusing conservatives and Republicans of doing.”

  12. Follow the money, the emails, and you will find that the lives she’s talking about, she, and others like her give 0 f^cks.
