New: Leaked Emails Show Trump’s White Supremacist Adviser Stephen Miller Planted Tons of Stories at Breitbart “News”

Politics • Views: 16,568

The SPLC is continuing their report on White House senior policy adviser (and outright white supremacist) Stephen Miller’s leaked emails, and today they’re highlighting the disturbing fact that Miller was actually giving editorial orders to Breitbart “News.”

Miller viewed the highly trafficked Breitbart as a way to promote his nativist, anti-immigration policies and to attack political enemies before millions of readers. And, while politicians and their staff commonly seek to influence news coverage, the dynamic on display in Miller’s emails to Breitbart suggests the conservative outlet was “not playing by the same rules that legitimate news organizations play by,” said Kyle Pope, editor-in-chief of the Columbia Journalism Review.

“This is not remotely how a professional news organization functions,” Pope told Hatewatch, regarding Miller’s often-direct editorial instructions. “What is scary here is Trump, and his team, and also Trump supporters – hold up this kind of cheerleading news organization as an example of how journalism should be done, and it’s clearly not.”

The emails examined by Hatewatch demonstrate a pattern of influence by Miller. On April 10, 2016, he sent an email with the subject line “aggregate?” to Breitbart with a tweet by conservative commentator Matt Drudge. In his tweet, Drudge questioned the integrity of Colorado’s Republican caucus system in which Ted Cruz won a majority of delegates and which Trump had criticized as being “rigged.” Breitbart soon turned Drudge’s tweet into the story Miller apparently envisioned, “Matt Drudge: ‘Hello Colorado Republicans, even Iraqis get a vote.’”

Miller looks almost gaunt in that image.

Breitbart and Drudge were the first to grasp that if you just put a story out on the Internet, it will soon develop its own legs and get picked up by the MSM and treated as if it had some merit.

Because it is easier to have some intern monitor Twitter for you than to actually pay an investigative journalist.

Gingrich saying something like that is so dense it should have it’s own gravitational pull.

Does anybody really want to take the time to point out that Newt was part of a party that spent six years working to destroy the presidency of a man who had the audacity to be more popular than they? That Newt’s own political career was a casualty of that effort, forced to step down as Speaker because his hypocrisy reached levels of radioactivity that made Chernobyl look tame by comparison?

He goes on Fox. If he went anywhere else, he’d be called out on it so he stays with his FNC safe space.

So this is a new Republican talking point? “It’s all political so we should all just forget Trump’s crimes and malfeasances?”

The Founding Fathers wrote the parameters of the impeachment process right into the Constitution: and left them fairly openly-defined. AND: delegated the impeachment power to the Legislative Branch. Impeachments are always “political” in some way: but that doesn’t mean they should be lightly dismissed solely on those grounds.

And if the whole thing is just because “Dems don’t like President Trump” - why are they bothering to conduct these hearings/examine these witnesses with such punctilious regard for legal process (GOP squawking notwithstanding)?

Moron.

lets remember what they’re doing

they are building a narrative that’s not totally and completely transparent and moronic which will allow them to (plausibly) vote not guilty so when they are next up for re-election they wont get steamrolled

they are not participating in the process as the side zealously representing the president’s interests / everyone deserves a defense, etc

they are throwing stuff at the wall to see what sticks best (will hurt them least) and will eventually use that as the justification for their vote

they’d not appear at all if that tactic would work better

their calculus is entirely political and as far removed from the facts, evidence and process as could possibly be

there is nothing more to this

this is why im not arguing explaining, point out, correcting, etc, most any of this. it’s a pointless exercise that will fall either on deaf ears or on those who already traffic only in facts

That was all justified because VALUES and stuff mattered then.

Now, we’re just expected to ‘get over it’.

SO apparently, the new GOP talking point: the whole impeachment thing is due - solely - to pathological personal hatred for Donald Trump?. “Misunderstandings”, “fighting corruption”, doubts on “loyalty” and “George Soros paying Ukraine to hide Hillary’s criminal emails” maybe not polling too well?

Still no real “defense” of Trump, I notice: just more “He didn’t do anything wrong, but even if he did, shut up!”

re: #12 Belafon

In a rare public display of disagreement in the alliance, US negotiators abruptly walked out of today’s talks with South Korea after the 66-year ally balked at President Trump’s price tag for funding 28,500 American troops in the country.

Putin, Xi and Kim must all be looking on as if they cannot believe their good fortune…

We were the indespensible nation when the opponent was an aggressive Soviet Union. China knows that’s not how you play it. The US model was to convince others that it was in their interest to have the same interests as the US.

The negotiators are trying Trump’s method of negotiating, but failed to take into account that there are other possible partners. This could end up costing the US defense industry, as South Korea buys from us as part of the deal of US being there.

He will, and he still stands a fair-to-middling chance of winning.

The Impeachment process will not likely end in a conviction by the Senate, I put the odds of that as marginal at best, regardless of what evidence comes to light.

Things might change if he has to release his tax returns before the election.

Trump and his staff are totally ignorant to how soft power works. He was too busy being a self promoting douche when the professionals he mocks and disdains were keeping the country’s place as a superpower.

Not only does it hurt the US defense industry, there’s larger stakes.

The US-Japanese-South Korean alliance is a cornerstone in containing Chinese aggression in the region. Allowing South Korean to move closer to China damages that alliance, strains the relationship between South Korea and Japan. It also signals to Japan that the US can’t be trusted as an ally and that they have to consider strengthening their military (something that nobody in the region wants, given history).

And that’s before we even get to the global economic implications where China now has a new potential trading partner and gains even more power to determine the economics of this next century.

It’s like the guy who never reads books should read some about history. He’s too obsessed thinking our relationships with other countries are like the mobbed up dynamics he’s dealt with in the business world.

Schiff just needs to cut Nunes’ microphone. Accept the blowback, but the vast majority of people will approve of that action.

Maybe I’m grasping at straws here, but this might be the last one that sends the GOP over the edge: the MIC is one this country’s last major export industries - driving “customers” away to other sources, or spurring them to start up their own domestic production is going hurt some very important bottom lines.
Though unfortunately - a la Trump’s bailout giveaways to farm businesses hurt by his inane tariffs - said MIC will probably just start waving flags, and get the G to make up any shortfalls….
