Hillary Clinton blames election loss on “fake news”

Ezra LevantRebel Commander
 

Yesterday, the one-month anniversary of her election loss, Hillary Clinton gave a speech, blaming others for her defeat.

No, it wasn’t her law-breaking, her illegal homemade e-mail server, her lying about that, or deleting e-mails.

No, Hillary blamed “fake news” — that is, some mean websites that nobody has heard about.

Funny, I remember when she blamed the deadly terrorist attack in the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya on an Internet video about Islam, made by some guy in California. That was her creating fake news.

Hillary Clinton is the chief beneficiary of fake news, and the chief creator of it. But now she wants it banned.

She sounds a bit like Vladimir Putin.

Which is funny. Because the Clintonistas say Putin is behind all the fake news stories they hate. The Washington Post, owned by Democrat billionaire Jeff Bezos, claimed dozens of news media outlets, from Breitbart to the Drudge Report — to us, if you can believe it! — are part of Russia’s propaganda program.

But the Post just added a note to that story, two weeks later. They had to admit that their "expert" on "fake news" was... fake. 

The fact is, “fake news” is whatever Hillary Clinton or Justin Trudeau or Rachel Notley, or the CBC and Maclean’s and the Globe and Mail don’t want you to know about.

So now they’re trying to get you to doubt your own lying eyes.

Yeah, no. Too late for that.

No-one trusts the mainstream media anymore...

NEXT: Speaking of fake news, the National Posts' Barbara Kay explains why, contrary to the elite narrative, the chant "Lock her up" isn't anti-feminist.

THEN: Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders found guilty of "hate speech" today.

UK freedom fighter Tommy Robinson comes on to look at Wilders' populist momentum; he is more popular than ever before — could he be the next leader of the Netherlands?

FINALLY: Your messages to me — and a reminder to come to our anti-carbon tax rally in Calgary on Sunday.

VISIT RallyForAlberta.com for more information. 

And if you can't make it, we'll be live-streaming the event here, and on Facebook and Twitter.

“Ezra blames the ndp because they removing coal from boilers but the coal is only used for steel manufacturing. Not boilers for electricity. So a complete lie.”

IF what you have said is true, then what Ezra said sounds more like an honest mistake than a lie, but either way it certainly isn’t “fake news”.

Both left and right create fake news. Ezra does it all the time as an example. Look at the coal closing at cold lake Alberta. Ezra blames the ndp because they removing coal from boilers but the coal is only used for steel manufacturing. Not boilers for electricity. So a complete lie.

One interesting tidbit was on the CBC tonight (Dec 11) where the so called God father of fake news admits he created stories to try and out the (alt right) by tricking them and thereby discredit them. It is on second video at about 21:22 http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/fake-news-pizzagate-the-investigators-1.3889531 It reminded me in ways of how the veritas project revealed the deception going against Trump during the election campaign in order to try and discredit him and his supporters.

Who is without sin when it comes to fake news or attempting to influence the outcome of an election etc.? The American government is currently accusing the Russians of influencing the outcome of the US election… I suppose the United States government have not engaged in such tactics?

The hypocrisy is blinding and the media play right into it! Indeed, with respect to “fake news”, “because the phrase lacks any clear definition, it is essentially useless except as an instrument of propaganda and censorship”.

When you run a campaign on the race card and the woman’s card it’s proof you are a couple cards short of a deck.

I have to wonder how many left leaning news sites if any made Hillary’s “fake news” list.
commented 2016-12-11 04:22:35 -0500
I’m wondering if some place down the road there will be a new popular metaphor for blatant lying and disinformation called “Hillary News”?…

Commisar Oliver Klosov…pornography editor of Pravda and honeypot manager of Cagey Bee here….I have earned medal of Hero of the Former Soviet Union for the espionage coup of influencing the American capitalist pig election by revealing the state TOP SECRET that Hillary is a mendacious lying cunt…..:-)

Hillary has something in common with Prince Charles. An entire lifetime spent waiting to be Monarch.

All of these criticisms and protests about fake news are nothing more than a demonstration by a government whose biggest concern is getting themselves re-elected and how they are willing to do anything including dividing the country and effectively shut down their critics to insure this happens. It was of extreme importance that Trump took this round before they could tighten the information noose and we were left distributing flyers on the street. We need to develop strategies to prevent social media companies from the latest casualties of power hungry governments.

Ezra, the writing in Comments would be easier to read if the text was black, not grey.

Yes, “Fake News”, such as what we saw from CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, NPR, NY Times, and so on. Why is it always about Trump? They do need to find a large mirror and look into it. Same with Lying Hillary, who keeps being caught in lies, but seemingly forgiven by the above mentioned news outlets.

Her blaming everyone else but herself goes well with her lies about landing in a war zone under fire while the video of the event showed her being given flowers by children, reviewing troops, speaking with officials and officers, and calmly walking to a Humvee for transport. None of her story about her and Chelsea running for cover and being shot at was true, as is much of her life as she presents it. Oh wait, wasn’t that her putting out “Fake News”?

There use to be a process in which if someone was libeled they could take the offending paper to court if their demand for a retraction wasn’t met. It should raise questions as to why this isn’t occurring and the government seems to prefer opting for censorship. Perhaps they know they can’t win their case in a court room and the truth would be in the spotlight and it is much easier to try and use your political weight to push people around.

with Tommy on the Rebel Team your picking your team as good as Trumps team picks, you keep getting it right Ezra.

Trudeau scented candle…another reason we are a joke to the rest of the world. Fake news is all Canada has on t.v. unless you get internet and Rebel your living in fake news world.
commented 2016-12-10 03:11:28 -0500
It is so obviously self serving for any government to think they alone should be able to determine what “fake” news is and just as obvious why there should be no state owned broadcasters as one is just the extension of the other. A mutually parasitic relationship has evolved where both hosts have become so dependent on each other that they have forgotten how to survive alone, but don’t underestimate the fight they will give if you try to extract one from the other as entitlement will hang on to it’s prestige and perks like a pitbull to a steak.

This is pretty damn rich, the left saying that fake news is someone elses doing, they are actually saying that she lost because of the truth.
commented 2016-12-10 02:00:49 -0500
Trudeau scented candles? I would rather stick my head down a sewer and inhale deeply.
commented 2016-12-10 01:44:35 -0500
Once again showing that lefties are only lying when their lips are moving or they are writing. Otherwise it’s all true. Well, except maybe when they are playing charades.
commented 2016-12-10 00:23:27 -0500
Trudeau scented candles? Yuck. I really don’t want anything near me with his “scent”. That’s not anti-LGBTQ2, just i have my own preference, and “great hair” aside, PMJT, you don’t make the list

Sore loser Hillary. Couldn’t be more delighted. Looking forward to Tony Robinson to being a contributor. Hes smart, tough and eloquent. I’d love it if Geert could be a contributor. Hopefully you can still make a living while wearing a DOC jumpsuit in the Netherlands.

Welcome Tommy Robinson. What a terrific addition!.
commented 2016-12-09 23:00:17 -0500
Hillary Clinton is correct in saying that fake news can be dangerous. This is why the American voters made sure she didn’t become president. She and her presidential campaign were fake news.
commented 2016-12-09 22:03:08 -0500
Great show Ezra, as usual, good to have Tom Robinson on the feed line , your piece on the fake news should be teach in schools , good work, will have my brick on the wall. proud of it.

Can’t make the Calgary rally. Too cold and icy roads. When is this global warming going to kick in? Twice as busy trying to make ends meet. Hillary is full of shit, the embassy wasn’t attacked, it was a undisclosed location which could only have been disclosed by intelligence. They weren’t gangsters they were mercenaries. It’s ironic that they label patriots as terrorists like Britain First campaign. If you’re not islamophobe you’re an idiot. Check the history

- Americans are concerned about fake news – like CNN handing Hillary the debate questions. Like the mainstream fake news media ignoring her many acts of treason & acting as her personal propaganda machine. Like the mainstream fake news media twisting a locker room video into a virtual rape charge against Trump while ignoring the many real rape charges against Bill Clinton. The truth defeated Hillary & that’s what she & her mainstream fake news media really wants destroyed. The mainstream fake news media has no credibility left among Americans & they still can’t figure out why. It’s the same throughout Western Civilization. Globalism is based on lies.
Globalists even lied about globalism being a thing while in the background saying things like this – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTx2fWSoVVI

- Conservatives need to stop pandering to “progressives”. “Lock her up” doesn’t need to be explained & isn’t offensive. Let the “progressives” justify their own words or go home & pout. The fact is they can’t defend their policies so they do whatever they can to shut down any opposing viewpoint.

- Great to hear from Tommy again. Loved his book. Great to see him coming to the Rebel – great fit. The disgusting games these globalist are playing have begun to unravel. No amount of censorship can keep people from seeing what’s going on right in front of their eyes.
