Firenze Sage: Boo louder! [Trump’s speech at Davos]

boo sound was ‘boosted” by German media

German public broadcaster ARD has been blasted after admitting it “boosted” the sound of booing at the speech given by U.S. President Donald Trump late last week.

President Trump gave his speech at Davos on Thursday, again delivering sharp criticism to the mainstream media. He stated: “it wasn’t until I became a politician that I realized how nasty, how mean, how vicious, and how fake the press can be.

ARD released a clip of the speech on the Twitter account for its popular news programme “Tagesschau” in which distinct boos could be heard directly after the President’s comments. A short time later the programme admitted it had booted the volume of the audio in order to showcase the booing. The show has since been accused of “manipulation”, Stern reports.

Those behind the programme wrote on Twitter, “We did actually make the sound a little louder at the end so that you can hear the booing. Only in this way can we reflect what our correspondents have reported.”

Editor-in-chief of the German tabloid newspaper Bild Julian Reichelt called out those involved saying it was, “hard to imagine that you would have done the same for applause.”

Kai Gniffke, the editor in chief of ARD defended the move saying that it proved the reporting of his journalists.

A trophy for fake news of the week? Al Franklin? Trophy for real heroes? Native American code breakers?


A trophy for fake  USA  news of the week  goes to?

A trophy for fake news of the week goes to …? Al Franklin?   And trophies  for  real heroes this week   go to?

Fake apology of the week trophy  goes  to Republican  Al Franklin who can’t say exactly what he is apologizing for.  He  made an on the air apology for  fondling an  attractive woman’s breasts   while on an airplane.   Al  Franklin  does not remember   ‘the kiss’  as described by the woman — nor  does he apologize for it.

Fake news award  trophy for the week  goes to ….   Democrat Senator  Elizabeth Warren aka  “Pocahontas”  who President Trump slams for faking  Native American heritage which she used to further her graduate school career. Doubtful that Warren will apologize for that bad behavior  which she engaged in  many  moons  ago.

Fake defense  of the week ….?   That award  goes to Democrat Nancy Pelosi  who describes  Democrat John Conyers as an “icon”…   An icon of what?  Revere John Conyers for successfully covering up money paid by taxpayers in 2015  related to charges of  sexual harassment?

And who are some  heroes of the week?     How about  the Native American code talkers who were honored recently by President Trump.    They are  true heroes.   And  how about  the heroine Pocahontas who in 1607 saved the life (so it goes) of John Smith,  an Englishman who was captured by Native Americans.    She was a true heroine.

Some info on Pocahontas  below:


Pocahontas, a real Native American heroine to tell children about

Pocahontas (born Matoaka, known as Amonutec. 1596–1617) was a Native American[2][3][4] teenager notable for her association with the colonial settlement at Jamestown, Virginia. Pocahontas was the daughter of Powhatan, the paramount chief[2] of a network of tributary tribal nations in the Tsenacommacah, encompassing the Tidewater region of Virginia. In a well-known historical anecdote, she is said to have saved the life of a captive of the Native Americans, the Englishman John Smith, in 1607 by placing her head upon his own when her father raised his war club to execute him. Some historians have suggested that this story, as told by Smith, is untrue.[5]

Yes, honor Native American code breakers that helped win World War II.  And call a fake a fake  —  Elizabeth Warren as “Pocahontas” is and was a fake for  saying that she is Native American when she applied to Harvard and Penn. There’s lots of fake news out there.

Image manipulation? Russian flag & Trump

russian flagWhat’s the Russian flag look like –  well, it’s red white and blue.  Guess what — let’s pull a fast one say  a couple young men.

One of the persons  the  behind the supposed “prank”   was paid in the past  by  Hilary Clinton to go disrupt Trump rallies.

trump name on flagThis appears to be  more stuff  from the left/ liberals who  wants to connect Trump somehow  to Russia and that somehow Clinton’s victory — supposed to be a given — was stolen wrongfully by Trump.  That’s the narrative.

One thing for sure:  now we know what the Russian flag looks like.  That Russian flag by the way has  only been around a couple decades.


fake news: if you don’t like Trump just go ahead & lie

 fake-news-bbbb Fake news again: Actually detained under Obama, an Olympic medal winner Muslim-American  lies as to when  detention occurred.  
The latest example features Ibtihaj Muhammad, the New Jersey native who recently became the first female Muslim-American to win an Olympic medal for the United States.

Here’s a transcript of what Muhammad told Popsugar’s Lindsay Miller on Feb. 7 about the alleged incident with customs agents [emphases added]:

Popsugar: Do you know anyone who was directly impacted by Trump’s travel ban?

Ibtihaj Muhammad: Well, I personally was held at Customs for two hours just a few weeks ago. I don’t know why. I can’t tell you why it happened to me, but I know that I’m Muslim. I have an Arabic name. And even though I represent Team USA and I have that Olympic hardware, it doesn’t change how you look and how people perceive you.

Unfortunately, I know that people talk about this having a lot to do with these seven countries in particular, but I think the net is cast a little bit wider than we know. And I’m included in that as a Muslim woman who wears a hijab.

Journalists were so eager to virtue signal their outrage and despair over this supposed injustice that Time, the UK’s Independent, the Daily Mail, the New York Daily NewsThe Hill, and of course Sports Illustrated and ESPN all spread the story far and wide before verifying it. Specifically, they should have double-checked whether she was detained after Trump’s travel ban went into place, after Trump was inaugurated, or perhaps while Obama was still president.

As it happens, according to Muhammad herself, her purported “detention” took place in December while Obama was still president.


Firenze Sage:  If a Muslim woman speaks ill of Trump it must be true. There are no journalists left anymore.

M.L. King Jr’s bust: Time magazine reporter cannot see what he does not want to see


M.L.King Jr's bust never moved.

M.L.King Jr’s bust never moved.

The M.L. King Jr bust never moved:  White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, scoldedTIME magazine White House pool reporter Zeke Miller on Friday for falsely reporting that the Martin Luther King Jr. bust had been removed from the Oval Office after President Donald Trump moved in.

Miller had initially tweeted Friday that the MLK Jr. bust, which then-President Obama put in the Oval Office after removing a bust of former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in 2009, had been removed from the Oval Office.

Realizing his mistake, Miller tweeted a correction and apologized for spreading the false report:

Correction: The MLK bust is still in the Oval Office. It was obscured by an agent and door.


Oh do forgive his apparent blindness. The bust,which I must have seen before,was behind a person or door which obscured my view of what I must have seen before. Or–I got caught lying.
