Lyin’ Brian Williams is Now Giving Lessons on How to Deceive!

Published

on

Brian Williams should really learn to stop and think before he talks. You may recall that in 2015 Williams was fired for admitting that he fabricated a story about a visit to Iraq, stating that his helicopter was hit by enemy fire.

Once confidence in Williams’ ability to tell the truth was shaken, a series of apparent lies and embellishments came to light. Williams’ account of his time in a hotel during Hurricane Katrina appears to be exaggerated at best and flat out fabricated at worst. Williams also claimed to be “at the Brandenburg Gate the night the wall came down,” however, it was later confirmed that he arrived the following day.

His career was derailed in a most embarrassing way. Lyin’ Brian memes appeared everywhere. He was a laughing stock. But he was given a second chance, so you would think he would be extremely careful whenever he discusses issues relating to the truth. In addition, you would think he would think twice before cracking even a joke about honesty.

So, when Williams told Floridians to stay inside instead of risk their lives for a picture relating to Hurricane Irma, his advice to “Forward this picture on Instagram, pretend you shot it, and pretend it’s yours, and we’ll look the other way,” was probably a bad idea. Here is the video.

MSNBC’s The 11th Hour host Brian Williams is probably regretting a flippant comment he made during the network’s live coverage of Hurricane Irma on Sunday afternoon, after it earned him mockery online. While discussing a photo reporters in Tampa, Florida had taken of the intense winds, Williams instructed Florida viewers to not take similar photos of their own. Instead, he suggested they steal this photo, share it, and “pretend you shot it.”

“We’ll look the other way,” he helpfully added.

His comment probably wouldn’t have received much attention if it had been made by any other person, but Williams’ own background of lying in his reporting, made him the last person who should make such a joke.

The disgraced NBC Nightly News anchor was fired in 2015, after repeatedly recounting a made up story where he came under enemy fire while reporting overseas during the Iraq War. He was reinstated later in the same year, but lost his position as anchor at NBC, and didn’t get his own show again until the fall of 2016 on MSNBC at 11pm.

Williams made the remark during the noon hour on the September 10 MSNBC Live. Reporter Cal Perry started by showing photographs of the storm to Williams and viewers, that the MSNBC crew in Tampa, Florida had sent them:

PERRY: The crew in Tampa, I had them e-mail photographs. Here’s the water, water in Tampa bay is receding.

WILLIAMS: Yeah, that’s incredible.

Perry continued to show more photographs:

PERRY: This is what they’re seeing on the ground.

WILLIAMS: You can live there all your life, not see this sight, not see what’s beneath the water you walk by every day.

The in studio MSNBC crew marvelled at the photos showing the storm’s winds had made the water recede:

PERRY: And one of the things we do want to mention because people have power are probably seeing this, don’t go look. Let us show you this. Don’t go down there.

METEOROLOGIST BILL KARINS: Tampa, you have six, seven, eight hours until they have to get to their safe rooms, but you know, you don’t want to be driving around.

That’s when Williams interjected to instruct viewers to “pretend” they had did something they hadn’t actually done:

“Forward this picture on Instagram, pretend you shot it, and pretend it’s yours, and we’ll look the other way,” Williams stated.

The sad thing is, Williams must be assuming that people are all just like him, willing to lie in order to bring the spotlight on them, no matter what the truth is. What’s even sadder is that a proven liar still has a position in the media at all. Williams’ move to MSNBC just shows that MSNBC is the destination for journalists of questionable integrity.

Even though Williams was most likely making this suggestion in a light-hearted manner, it is telling that an idea like this even enters his mind so readily! It’s no wonder the public is waking up and not trusting what they see on the news anymore. They can’t even find enough journalists with integrity to deliver the news.  It seems MSNBC like all the other MSM, have to “look the other way” like they have with Brian Williams.

[Video] How College Actually Made This Student More Conservative

Published

on

This week students across the country will head to to their respective campuses and start their college years.  This is a time met with anticipation and excitement.  At the same time, in doing so, their debt clocks will start ticking, loudly.

The average college graduate these days owes over $37,000 in student loans!  Depending on the college they choose, they could be looking at much more.  If you are shelling out that kind of money, you better be sure of what you are buying.

student debt

Many people will be paying their student loan debt off for decades.  So it better be worth it and they better have picked a solid major.  Unfortunately for many, they choose what they find interesting instead of what will eventually pay the bills.  I personally know many college graduates working jobs that have nothing to do with their majors.  I guess the philosophy PhD that delivers pizzas might use his “skills” to determine how one might choose their toppings.  Deep stuff.

This student went to college and instead of becoming a liberal snowflake, became what she calls “a cranky conservative.”  Watch this short video and see how her transformation happened; it is eye opening. (the transcript is included below as well)

H/T Prager University

Transcript:

“Have you ever heard the old saying that a conservative is just a liberal who got mugged?

Well, I got mugged – to the tune of $60,000 a year. It’s called “tuition.”

Like everyone who cons themselves into attending a liberal arts college, I was captivated by the idea of changing the world. I would immerse myself in a diverse pool of academic thought, theory, and action.

Well…it didn’t quite work out that way.  Over the course of four years, I was transformed from a plucky, free-thinking free spirit into a cranky, get-off-my-lawn conservative.

The process started not long after I arrived at my elite East Coast school. I thought I was there to expand my knowledge of the world; to debate the great ideas. I soon realized, however, that my professors had something else in mind.

Invariably each class followed the same monotonous ritual: identify a problem – say, racism; blow it up beyond all proportion; blame the problem on the white majority culture; and then offer an unworkable solution – usually involving the government.

Everywhere I turned, I saw political correctness. At first, I just rolled with it. Then, I got annoyed. Then, it started to tick me off.  I was being brainwashed.  Indoctrinated.  And I was paying for the privilege – with borrowed money!

Almost every speaker who came to campus was a leftist journalist, a leftist activist, or a leftist professor from another leftist school.  The ones who weren’t leftists were just weird. One time, I attended a film lecture given by a very skilled paraplegic adult film star who showed us some of her “art.” Another time, I went to a performance given by a woman who engaged in auto-eroticism behind a curtain.

I couldn’t deal with it – the PC culture, the mono thinking, the weirdness.  I needed some way to cope. So, I got high – almost every day.

Parenthetically, most of the worst stoners I knew are now working in finance or politics. In fact, this is what made me first realize that I was a fan of limited government. I do not trust these goofs to make policy. Their power must be constrained.

This brings me to another black hole in the college experience: useless majors – the only thing more pervasive than marijuana and irresponsible future leaders. I’m not being judgmental here: I have a degree in film and media studies and political science. Why did I choose them? Because they’re subjects I like talking about. Practical, right?

But I was not alone. Most of my peers also chose to spend their student loan money on subjects better learned on YouTube or Turner Classic Movies.

By the time graduation approached, none of us had developed any actual job skills.

And people want to raise taxes to pay for free college for everyone? Are you kidding me? No. Just…no. I’d only give a free education to a smart kid who promised to get a degree in whatever the exact opposite of my degree is.  And that degree didn’t come cheap.

I took on tens of thousands of dollars of debt, but never spent a minute learning how to manage it. No such classes were offered. I might have actually learned something useful if they had been.  I didn’t learn about taxes either, other than that the rich didn’t pay their “fair share.”

It was only after college, when I was lucky enough to get my first job, that I discovered the truth: the government takes away a lot of your money. Frankly, it’s shocking. And that’s not even counting the mandatory $400 a month deduction for my student loans. I’ll be probably have that albatross around my neck for the rest of my life.

Really, I can’t believe my peers and I spent so much time shaming conservatives for wanting to lower taxes.  A past version of myself would call this desire to keep what I earn “selfish.” The current, cheerfully realistic version of me knows this: I can spend my money much better than the politically-correct stoners who are running the government can.

So, I guess – in a roundabout way – I did get something of value out of my expensive liberal arts education after all:  Common sense.

I’m Jay Stephens for Prager University.”

If you are a parent with a child ready to explore colleges, you should really take a hard look at this fact:  liberal professors outnumber conservative professors by 12 to 1.  Some departments, like history, are even worse.

As a college student, I thought I knew everything.  Now, as a parent, I can see that my 18-year-old self was still figuring the world out.  I distinctly remember the looks on my conservative parents’ faces when I questioned them about something my world history professor said, which was basically ‘Christ was a fraud’.  Sorry Mom and Dad!

Many students go to college and think of their professors as celebrities.  They believe what they have to say and are not at all comfortable questioning what they are told.  Professors are in powerful positions.

In high school, teachers aren’t supposed to indoctrinate and give their opinions (though many do, trust me, I used to teach at one).  But in college, the culture is different and professors are free to opine on whatever they choose, and they take full advantage of their captive audiences.

That said, there are colleges out there that are more friendly to conservative viewpoints.  Additionally, some conservative students have their heads on straight and can actually make a difference on a liberal campus.  I think being aware of the blatant liberal bias of professors and campus officials can at least give students an idea what they are up against.  Parents need to prepare their students for this challenge.  Otherwise, you may get a snowflake home for Christmas.
