Schumer: "U.S. Is No Longer Fact-Based" Nation; Breitbart News A "Threat To Democracy"

Tyler Durden's picture

Last Friday Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a press release reminding sanctuary cities of their obligation to enforce federal immigration laws or risk losing their federal funding.  Within the release, Sessions noted that Chicago's murder rate has risen "more than 50 percent from the 2015 levels" and that New York City continues to experience gang murders due to the city's "soft on crime" stance.  Here's what he said:

"Additionally, many of these jurisdictions are also crumbling under the weight of illegal immigration and violent crime. The number of murders in Chicago has skyrocketed, rising more than 50 percent from the 2015 levels. New York City continues to see gang murder after gang murder, the predictable consequence of the city's “soft on crime” stance. And just several weeks ago in California’s Bay Area, after a raid captured 11 MS-13 members on charges including murder, extortion and drug trafficking, city officials seemed more concerned with reassuring illegal immigrants that the raid was unrelated to immigration than with warning other MS-13 members that they were next."

We suspect that Sessions' "soft on crime" comment was in reference to an ongoing feud between the NYPD and Mayor Bill De Blasio that erupted back in 2014 after De Blasio effectively legitimized the assassination of two cops in broad daylight by referring to minorities as "oppressed" and "threatened" by local police.  The situation garnered national media attention when the NYPD turned their backs on De Blasio after he showed up at the funeral ceremony of the murdered cops.

Of course, the main stream media had a slightly different interpretation of Sessions' "soft on crime" comment and has worked itself into a tizzy insisting that the Department of Justice is 'attacking' the NYPD. 

As evidence, here is a comical exchange from MSNBC this morning in which Joe Scarborough insists that Sessions is "attacking the NYPD" while Mika accuses the DOJ of propagating "fake news":

Scarborough:  "The Attorney General sends out a letter basically attacking the NYPD saying that they are 'soft on crime.'  Has he never been to New York?"


Schumer:  "We are the lowest of the 25 biggest cities in crime."


Mika:  "But they say crime is out of control."


Schumer:  "My daughters ride the subway at 4am and I'm perfectly happy about it.  We are a safe city.  And, by the way, New York has grown from 7 million people in 1990 to 8.5 million today, the largest of any city because crime went down."


Mika:  "There's this talk about 'fake news' but that quote we just put up there is 'fake news' coming from the Attorney General."


Schumer:  "We're no longer fact-based.  The founding fathers created a country based on fact.  We don't have a fact base.  If Breitbart News and the New York Times are regarded with equal credibility, you worry about this democracy."


We won't even bother to highlight all of the instances in which the New York Times decided to push 'fake news' regarding the Trump administration's alleged ties to Russian hackers (but feel free to read this for an example:  "NYTimes Reports Trump Aides' "Repeated Contact" With Russian Intel Officials, Admits No Collusion Discovered").

That said, we can at least agree with Chuck that many politicians no longer live in a "fact-based" fact, here is just one of our favorite examples...


...and this one is also very good.

Absolutely. If the New York Times has any credibility at all you're all fucked!

Hearing a partisan lib talk about the founding fathers is always hysterical.  As if they give a shit what the founding fathers did or why.

Alternate viewpoints are a threat to democracy.  It's only a small step to the antifa Trotskyites where alternate viewpoints are fascist and those who disagree deserve suppression and violence.

Only just now? We went to war in Vietnam for something that never actually happened... Our last President registered 3 different birth certificates in Alabama. 


This country has been headed downward at an ever increasing pace since 1913. It really picked up when we picked the wrong side to fight on during WW2...

It is because the democrat politicians start appropriating the customs and subculture of their voter base. Yeah, those imported from 3rd world shitholes without whom they wouldn't have a fucking politician in DC. 

So desperation is the word of the day since Nov 2016

Chuck is correct, there is no comparison between Breitbart and the NYT... One reports real news with a populist slant and the other is an outright platform for propaganda fed to them by the alphabet agencies of the US gubbermint... For Schumer to target Breitbart directly means that they are over the target and bombing for effect, something the Dims fear more than anything else, the truth...

Actually Schumer is *almost* spot on.

"U.S. Is No Longer Fact-Based" Nation; Breitbart News A "Threat To Democracy"


The first part is certainly true. The US and particularly the US Gov. are no longer fact-based and we live in a simulation where, in the words of Karl Rove, (((they))) create their own twisted reality dutifully pedaled by the MSM propaganda organs. Schumer screwed up the second sentence however: it should read


             Breitbart News is a threat to the DEEP STATE

Title: Schumer: "U.S. Is No Longer Fact-Based" Nation; Breitbart News A "Threat To Democracy

My response: GOOD!!! Let democracy die!!!! America is not now nor was it ever intended to be a democracy!

POTUS John Adams Quotation regarding his view of democracy.

“I do not say that democracy has been more pernicious on the whole, and in the long run, than monarchy or aristocracy. Democracy has never been and never can be so durable as aristocracy or monarchy; but while it lasts, it is more bloody than either. … Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide. It is in vain to say that democracy is less vain, less proud, less selfish, less ambitious, or less avaricious than aristocracy or monarchy. It is not true, in fact, and nowhere appears in history. Those passions are the same in all men, under all forms of simple government, and when unchecked, produce the same effects of fraud, violence, and cruelty. When clear prospects are opened before vanity, pride, avarice, or ambition, for their easy gratification, it is hard for the most considerate philosophers and the most conscientious moralists to resist the temptation. Individuals have conquered themselves. Nations and large bodies of men, never.”

John Adams, Letter, April 15, 1814

US diplomat & politician (1735 - 1826)

This is simply more vile sophistry from a feckless deep state puppet. The prevailing appetite for happy unfacts and a nearly complete lack of loathing of falsehood in the mainstream began its most recent uptick with the with the Clinton admin and accelerated rapidly post-9/11. Then the Barrack Obama administration elevated it back to levels not seen since the Civil Rights/Great Society/Viet Nam period or the Great Depression. Ol' Chuck has been chin-deep in the most bellicose forms of institutional deception for decades.

A primary tool of the Left is to rant/rave accusing their adversaries of the the very crimes they themselves have been systematically engaging in for some time. So he is in fact correct, but his timing and finger-pointing is WAY off target (as usual).

Sounds like Chuckie is getting a tad nervous about the press bearing down-

You go right ahead, Chuckie- lay down that deflection plan while you can....

Sure your daughters ride the subway at 4am, Chuck-  is their pimps' Coupe DeVille broke down?  Or is the Secret Service detail that you slapped on them 24/7 at taxpayer expense doing YOUR job for you?

"Hearing a partisan lib talk about the founding fathers is always hysterical.  As if they give a shit what the founding fathers did or why."

Or if they actually know anything about the founding fathers. Read White Cargo and you will find that indentured servants were actually slaves, mostly irish and scottish, many who were owned by George Washington, whose estate at the time of his death was worth over 600K at that time.

I dont think they were fact based then either.

Boom!  I agree.  The NY Times should have nowhere near the credibility of Breitbart.

docloxvio's picture

That is what I've thought since about '88 when I saw diametrically opposing stories on facing pages of the NYT that were quoting the same source as supporting facts. I wondered WTF the editors were up to, but it became clear after awhile of closer observation. Thankfully more and more people are seeing more clearly now too.

One thing the founding fathers would never have condoned is dual citizens holding public office....or having a security clearance.

F**k you Schumer...and Jose Scarzinski, too.  Good old Morning Joke wants to be a Bilderberger so bad.  He has become a disgusting clown, with a continuing rotation of other asswipes who parrot the globalization NWO lines.  That show is like an echo chamber.

Sen Schumer made a live appearance at a church I attend on Resurrection Sunday...I KNOW! ... I'm sitting there waiting for Gospel and I get CHUCK ... anyhow some take-aways for the group are: he is taller than he looks on TV (that's because he's a twisted hunchback), and he will say anything to work a crowd.  He almost demanded to be baptised he was pandering so hard.  Anyhow he was talking and advertising for only a few minutes and departed...I suppose all the sunlight and prayer combined was making him feel a little queasy.

The fact that Soweeto O'Sama spoke at both AARP and the AMA confirms my view that both care little for actual American health and good being.

Both AARP and AMA are marketing tools of Big Insurance and left wing groups imo.

Even AAA gives better hotel and travel discounts then AARP. Same with car purchases, etc. AARP and the AMA knew the middle class would be screwed and yet did zero to stop or correct Obamacare.

Get your history right!


***In a television interview shown in August 2000, when asked about what influence his Irish Catholic and Russian Jewish ancestry may have had on his life as a person and as an artist, Ford humorously stated, "As a man I've always felt Irish, as an actor I've always felt Jewish."[8][9]
