Washington Post Super Bowl Ad Features Fake Journalist Khashoggi

The self-congratulatory multimillion-dollar Washington Post advertisement that played during Super Bowl 53 highlighted the risks that journalists undertake to report the news, but also fraudulently represented an Islamist activist as one of those journalists.

The ad spot, which was narrated by Tom Hanks, features a photo of the Normandy landings during World War II, among other moments in U.S. history, including the Apollo 11 mission to the moon (which obviously did not have any journalists on board). The recurring theme is that journalists have been a part of the most ambitious, dangerous moments in our country’s history. The advertisement concludes by showcasing journalists who were captured or killed doing their job. “Knowing keeps us free,” Hanks concludes, marking the sacrifice that many journalists have made to report the news.

However, the last person represented as a journalist in the ad is the late Jamal Khashoggi, who, as I’ve written extensively, was not a journalist at all. Khashoggi was a lifelong Islamist activist and an avowed ally to Islamist terrorists and extremist organizations. He also had violent tendencies that sometimes appeared in his columns. Khashoggi hoped that Israel would “die by force” at the hands of Hamas. He continued to support al Qaeda-linked individuals and groups until his last days.

Decades ago, when he was in the good graces of the Saudi monarchy, Khashoggi was a correspondent for state-controlled Saudi media operations, but he was never a journalist who was free to report the news as he saw it. Khashoggi was an information operator, a propagandist until his last days.

Jamal Khashoggi was murdered in October after he entered a Saudi diplomatic building in Turkey. The killing of the recently hired Washington Post Global Opinions columnist, who had previously taken self-exile in the United States, provided the spark for a foreign propaganda firestorm. A spat that should have been exclusively between Turkey and Saudi Arabia was weaponized by Saudi Arabia’s enemies — mostly Qatar and Turkey — to weaken Riyadh’s foreign policy and its alliance with the United States.

Following Khashoggi’s death, the U.S. legacy media published countless anonymously sourced pieces, which came almost exclusively from foreign intelligence agencies, that claimed Khashoggi was murdered in a horrific fashion and that he was killed on direct orders from Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman (MBS), who is next in line to the Saudi throne. After Khashoggi’s death, the Washington Post waged an all-out information war against Saudi Arabia in defense of its departed contributor, taking to extreme, reckless lengths to do so. The Post has routinely featured op-eds from high-ranking Iranian terrorist regime officials, Houthi rebel leaders who have called for death to America and have been implicated in the torture of journalists, and Muslim Brotherhood leaders who have supported terrorist organizations.

Evidence continues to emerge that Khashoggi was not the man that the media represented him as. Not only was he an unreformed Islamist activist who was dedicated to anti-democratic ideals, we now know he was working in tandem with elements of the government of Qatar to spread its foreign policy priorities into the pages of the Washington Post.

“Text messages between Khashoggi and an executive at Qatar Foundation International show that the executive, Maggie Mitchell Salem, at times shaped the columns he submitted to The Washington Post, proposing topics, drafting material and prodding him to take a harder line against the Saudi government,” the Post reported in a piece that attempted to whitewash his collusion with Doha. Additionally, the Post report disclosed that Khashoggi’s stories were reviewed by a translator who worked for the Qatari embassy in Washington, D.C. The late Washington Post columnist had also been working with a who’s who of U.S.-based Islamist operatives on so-called “Islamic Democracy” promotion, which was largely a front for his preferred Muslim Brotherhood-aligned policies.

The $5+ million dollars spent on the Super Bowl ad could have gone to hiring real journalists — the type who willingly risk their lives every day to bring us unfiltered stories from across the globe, whether they are deployed to war zones or are citizen journalists reporting from inside totalitarian regimes. Khashoggi was not one of them. For the Washington Post to pretend that Jamal Khashoggi was a journalist disgraces the legacy of those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in search of the absolute truth.

MUST WATCH: CBS Rejects Patriotic, Pro-Flag Super Bowl Ad From Vet-Owned Company

CBS has rejected an ad from a veteran-owned athletic wear company, likely over concerns that the ad was “too political.”

The ad, which “features soldiers, first responders, and images of military graves decorated with American flags and gives credit to them for protecting the rights of those like Kaepernick to protest,” was titled “Just Stand,” and promoted clothing from Nine Line apparel, a veteran-owned athletic wear company, according to the Washington Examiner.

CBS reportedly told Nine Line that they weren’t confident the company, which pulls in a cool $25 million per year, could afford the steep, $5.25 million price tag for a 30-second spot during Sunday night’s big game, but a spokesperson for Nine Line says CBS objected to the ad’s overly political content.

The ad parodies a Nike ad from earlier in the NFL season that featured former 49ers second string quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who is best known for “taking a knee” during the national anthem as a way of protesting racism. The controversial Nike ad celebrated Kaepernick for “sacrifing everything.” . . .

Nine Line’s ad opens with a similar line, narrated by a survior of the horrific attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, which took the lives of four American officials and the American ambassador. The ad opens with the line, “Don’t ask if your loyalty is crazy. Ask if it’s crazy enough.”

Soldiers Will Soon Be Armed With These Game-Changing Drones That Fit in the Palm of Your Hand

Measuring just 6.6 inches in length and weighing only 1.16 ounces, these “nano unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) systems” are “small enough for a dismounted soldier to carry on a utility belt,” according to FLIR Systems.

These drones can provide situational awareness beyond visual line-of-sight capability day or night at a distance of up to 1.24 miles, covering ground at a max speed of 20 feet per second.

The “nearly silent” combat systems can provide constant covert coverage of the battlefield for almost a half hour, transmitting both live video and high-definition photographs back to the operator.

FLIR said the drone’s ability to covertly detect and identify threats will save the lives of troops in combat.

The Army is looking at a number of technologies that will allow soldiers to spot and even fire on enemies without putting themselves in harm’s way, such as night vision goggles connected to an integrated weapons sight that allows troops to shoot from the hip and around corners with accuracy.

WATCH: Women See the Horrific Reality of Abortion in These Stunning Videos

Live Action, the pro-life organization founded by Lila Rose, has an ongoing video series in which they approach men and women who identify as pro-choice, and try to change their minds.

The series follows a simple format. A person behind the camera first asks the pro-choice individuals their beliefs about abortion, then has them watch a video narrated by former abortionist, Dr. Anthony Levatino. These videos, which can be viewed in their entirety here, feature animated depictions of various abortion procedures as described by Levatino. . .

While watching the video, the women begins to cry. During the post-video interview, she says:

I didn’t know that you’d have to detach and crush, and the process it goes through, and all the risks that happen with this. So now that I do know, I just — you can, there are so many other options apart from abortion, and I know it sucks, and like, the consequences, and how it happened, and why you might want an abortion, but there’s always another option. And [you’ve] just got to suck it up because it’s a life.

The person behind the camera notes that prior to watching the video, the woman had said that there were “certain instances [or] circumstances where you would support it, in cases of rape, for example.” She was then asked if the video changed her mind. The woman replies that the video has indeed changed her mind.

Ilhan Omar Makes Stunning Admission About Her Anti-Semitism

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has come under fire for anti-Semitic comments in the past. During an interview with on “The Daily Show,” Omar explained how she never tried to be anti-Semitic but she understands how her comments could be deemed anti-Semitic. The most interesting aspect: Omar compares her being blind to her anti-Semitism to white people who don’t understand they have “white privilege.” . . .

1) If Omar was truly interested in learning how to change her ways and her thinking, she would come out and say, “I’m an anti-Semite but I don’t want to be. Can you please help me?” She would be upfront and honest about it. She wouldn’t be so wishy washy about where she stands. And she wouldn’t make an excuse for why she thinks the way she does.

2) Again, if she was truly interested in “overcoming her ways” she wouldn’t have taken so long to come to this realization. It wouldn’t have taken all of the public backlash she’s received.

Trump Hints at Big Announcement for the State of the Union on Immigration

By The Blaze. President Donald Trump continued feeding the weeks of speculation about whether he would declare a national emergency to begin construction on his promised border wall in order to circumvent congressional approval.

The president hinted Friday that he might make the controversial announcement during the State of the Union speech as he spoke to reporters about wall that had already been built on the border. . .

“They’re starting to learn,” he explained. “We’re spending a lot of money that we have on hand. It’s like in a business, we have money on hand, and we’re building, I would say we have a hundred and fifteen miles of wall, maybe a little bit more than that very shortly.” . . .

The president has been threatening to use the emergency order in order to prevent Democrats from blocking funding to his border wall since before the partial government shutdown began.

Trump Hints He’ll Discuss Border ‘Emergency’ at State of the Union

By Bloomberg. . .Trump once again called a congressional conference committee debating border security a “waste of time” and said his administration was proceeding with the construction of 115 miles of wall on the border with Mexico using money “on hand.” The conference committee is trying to agree to compromise legislation between Democrats, Republicans and the White House in order to avoid another government shutdown after Feb. 15.

Trump has repeatedly threatened to declare a national emergency on the border, which he says would allow him to transfer money from elsewhere in the government to build his promised border wall without congressional approval. House Democrats have threatened to sue over such a move. (Read more from “Trump Hints He’ll Discuss Border ‘Emergency’ at State of the Union” HERE)

Dem, Who Groped High School Friend Without Her Consent, Is Running for President

Well, mark this under not shocking. Those close to Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) said they were told by him that he was running for president. This was expected. The New Jersey Democrat planned to make it official during Black History Month, which starts today. This morning, as Leah noted, Booker formally announced that he was running. So, here’s to you, roamin’ hands Spartacus…I’ll get to that in a second. Yesterday, there was a lot of buzz that news of Bookers’ 2020 run would be coming soon (via The Hill):

Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) on Thursday began calling members of Congress informing them he is running for president and is quietly making overtures to members for support, three congressional sources told The Hill.

“Yes, he is reaching out to members for their support,” said a former Democratic aide with direct knowledge of Booker’s intentions. “He’s going to do it during Black History Month,” which starts on Friday.

Now, Bernie Sanders is looking to mount another White House run, but he’s being criticized for how his 2016 campaign operated concerning the human resources department. It was reportedly a den of sexism and sexual harassment. For Booker, well, he straight up admitted to groping a high school friend without her consent. He detailed it in his school’s newspaper.

This story was unearthed during the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation hearings, where Democrats put on a great show of theatrics, smearing a qualified candidate for no other reason other than they didn’t like Kavanaugh or Trump for nominating him. It was a character assassination, but in the end, Kavanaugh persisted. (Read more from “Dem, Who Groped High School Friend Without Her Consent, Is Running for President” HERE)

Congressman Releases Disgusting Anti-Semetic Voicemail Left for Him

Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin of New York tweeted out an anti-Semitic voicemail left on his office phone Thursday afternoon. He tagged Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar in the tweet, as the two of them have recently fought over their views on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The caller said in part:

Everybody’s anti-Semitic when it comes to talking about you people who have murdered black people, systematically enslaved them. You’re occupying the Palestinian region. You’re worse than Hitler. You maggots and bloodsuckers. Get the hell out of Israel and take your a** on back to Europe. I get sick of you calling people anti-Semitic when they’re not. I’m calling you a hater of the Palestinians. You stop murdering them and maybe people will look at you like you’re decent people. Right now you’re nothing but animals. You know Hitler told you that right? You got my phone number, you got my zip code. You come after me if you want. I don’t give a f*** cause I hate you people for what you did to us as black people and I wish Hitler would have done his f***ing job.

“We got calls like this all day long today and many were worse than what was in that voicemail. I went through K-12, college, law school, and 4 years on active duty in the Army and I never once experienced anti-Semitism,” Congressman Zeldin told The Daily Caller. “In the last several years though this anti-Israel, anti-Semitic hatred is only increasing in American politics, on college campuses, and in the halls of Congress.”

[Warning: voicemail contains extreme language]

WATCH: Trailer for Pro-Life Film ‘Unplanned’ Is Finally Here, and Planned Parenthood Is NOT Going to Like It

The trailer for the highly-anticipated pro-life film “Unplanned: The True Story of Abby Johnson” has finally arrived.

The film focuses on former Planned Parenthood executive Abby Johnson. Once the youngest clinic director in the nation and the abortion company’s 2008 employee of the year, Johnson had a dramatic change of heart and became one of the most prominent whistleblowers in the abortion giant’s history. . .

In her memoir, Johnson recalled the horrifying moment that changed her life forever: “For the briefest moment, the baby looked as if it were being wrung like a dishcloth, twirled and squeezed. And then it crumpled and began disappearing into the cannula before my eyes,” she wrote. “The last thing I saw was the tiny, perfectly formed backbone sucked into the tube, and then it was gone.” . . .

The film stars “War Room” actress Ashley Bratcher, playing Johnson. Appearing on “Fox & Friends” last year, Bratcher revealed that her mother informed her during filming that she was almost aborted. “I need to tell you something that I’ve never told you before. I was going to abort you,” her mother told her, the actress said. . .

“I’m grateful that God, through His providence, planted me here to tell my story — and that I have the privilege of sharing this film with the world,” Bratcher said. “And yes, I do secretly hope that one of the outcomes of all of these ‘coincidences’ is that many will find the courage my mother found when she listened to her conscience and made the choice that gave me life.”

Ashton Kutcher Posted a Powerful Video About Abortion, and It’s Going Viral

Hollywood actor Ashton Kutcher posted a powerful video on Facebook related to abortion, and it has garnered millions of views.

The video was testimony from actor and Special Olympian Frank Stephens before Congress in 2017 where he defeated the notion that babies with Down Syndrome should be aborted by forcing those listening to acknowledge his right to life.

“Whatever you learn today, please remember this,” said Stephens in his testimony, “I am a man with Down Syndrome and my life is worth living.”

“Sadly, across the world, a notion is being sold that maybe we don’t need research concerning Down Syndrome,” he explained. “Some people say prenatal screens will identify Down Syndrome in the womb and those pregnancies will just be terminated.” . . .

“First, we are a medical gift to society,” Stephens explained, “a blueprint for medical research into cancer, Alzheimers, and immune system disorders. Second, we are an unusually powerful source of happiness: a Harvard-based study has discovered that people with Down Syndrome, as well as their parents and siblings, are happier than society at large. Surely happiness is worth something? Finally, we are the canary in the eugenics coal mine. We are giving the world a chance to think about the ethics of choosing which humans get a chance at life.”
