Bloomberg "Reporter" (For Now) Ben Penn: Hey, Don't Overlook The Fact That I Took Out an Official Pushing Deregulation

Virtually a confession that he ran this garbage as a political hit.

Lost in all of this is that Olson was part of a team of political appointees tasked with the heavy lift of drafting wage-hour regulations that are high priorities for Trump White House, business community. They're now down one adviser.

How can you read that as anything other than saying, "You should support me, even if I lied, because I got a scalp for the left"?

Next steps: I want to know who this guy follows on Twitter and who DMs him. I bet you money that he got the political hit from a leftwing organization which shopped it to him.

He should be fired, and of course, so should the "editor" who pretended to fact-check this little pussy SJW's hit piece.

But of course the media doesn't believe in firing anyone for being too zealous a partisan operative.

Will Chamberlain points out that Ben Penn deliberately quoted around a reply specifically congratulating Olson for his "epic sarcasm."

Wouldn't want a clearly-sarcastic statement to be further proven to be sarcasm by quoting a congratulations about the sarcasm.

And so, crucial context was deliberately unquoted.

By the way: Whichever Obama holdover/career liberal at DOL forced this guy out over a plainly-engineered false smear should himself be fired.

People are asking, "Will Olson be rehired?" Who'd want to work for a boss that pressures you to resign over such a fraud?

This is only the first phase of the Unpersonning:




Relatedly, Sean Davis let David French have it for his "if" post:



People are trying to scare Ben Penn with the idea that he'll be fired:



A friend says that not only will he not be fired, but he'll be hired by the New York Times within one year.

All I see is how this is now a valid tactic.

As long as the government official was working on something that the reporter disagrees with, then lying about what that government official said and wrote is fine.

I mean, that's the only way to read this, right? The guy would agree that both sides should be able to use this tactic, right?

Huh?

Every person in the media has their particular beat, whether it's pop culture, politics, sports, business, leisure, fashion, lifestyle, or whatever.

But in every single one of those fields, the very top secondary directive is "harm Trump or conservatives."

Moreover, the law is clear on this point: whether or not something a reporter reports as fact is true, it can be labeled as an opinion, as long as it hurts Trump.

This guy did his job for Bloomberg, he exposed them to no liability, and he deserves to keep his position.

problem is, the left is demonic ... while the conservatives get duped by pretend conservatives. So the old Soviet anchor babies have been here 60 years, ffs, practicing their craft of deception. They have a couple generations trained to hate US ... and they congratulate each other when their lies succeed in harming America.

New Media and sites like Epoch Times or American Greatness are coming along ... smart blogs like AoS offer good insights, a ton of YouTube channels still offer some independent investigations ... there is some hope. I'm still unclear whether there was some other reason for Olson to leave, or maybe Leif just didn't want to fight the good fight ... idk.


Sounds like maybe Lief was not an essential component of the team, but the left would still brag ... even if they really just helped get rid of dead weight.

Trump should take to the Twitters and declare that he personally considered Mr. Olson's case using the exact same standards that the Democrats did with their censuring of Rep. Omar and found no evidence to justify the resignation.

The Jewish vote is essentially meaningless. It's so small that it affects nothing, at all, save a few local races. The only time the Jewish vote ever made any sort of difference in a major race was when the brain-addled seniors in Palm Beach mistakenly voted for Pat Buchanan because they couldn't figure out the butterfly ballots that the dem people had okayed. But that was just an unpredictable outcome to a very strange chaotic event ... thank G-d.

The left is also lucky that they have all the self-hating Jews on their side, so they don't have to worry about their Jew-haters (which include most of their Jews, too).

That frosts my balls.

If we're a nation of free men, which we ain't, then you can't make me leave my home. You can tell me emergency services are a no-go and I'm well and truly fucked if I stay, but you shouldn't be able to make me leave.

If the po-po is doing the minimum to cover their ass, and not really making anybody do anything, then good on them honestly.

Oddly enough, if I understand what he's claiming, he's saying that yes, she did marry her brother, but it wasn't her fault and it wasn't really fraud on her part since she didn't even know about it at the time. I think he's saying that other family members filled out all the paperwork to get him into the country, and when she did find out about she didn't say anything so as not to get the rest of her family in trouble.

Do you watch people ? Really watch them, analyze them ?

The vast majority of people I've ever taken the time to observe are simply acting out a previously decided upon series of responses and hoping for the best.

They don't do what they do based upon an immediate analysis of their current surroundings. They do what they do based upon a script.

They don't "Darwin" because the current system makes that really, really hard to pull off relatively speaking.

I love how the Remainers and EU loyalists think they are the Rebel Alliance, and the media props up calling them this. Do they NOT realize they are actually the Senate, being controlled by Palpatine, ie Soros?

You don't negotiate how you leave a relationship. You just fucking leave.

This has all been about dragging out the process, to give time to put doubt into people's minds about the decision.

They'll never leave - and at this point, the EU can't afford to give them a crumb of autonomy as an olive branch.

Write this down - the next land war in Europe is going to be about a country trying to leave the EU. Here's hoping we have the good sense to stay out of it - or at least support the defector.

On the Bing news page, turns out the kid's dad sold her to an Uber driver. And the driver dropped the child off with some lady in Western PA. The kid is still missing.

--

And that will be all you hear about that story.
Posted by: Moron Robbie -I have read all that, so now me also commenting here.

======

Weird story. Dad says the Uber driver took off with the kid when he stepped out to get her out of the car.

Driver claims Dad gave her instructions on where to take the kid for sale to another party and she followed the instructions and delivered the kid to some women in an SUV.

Meanwhile, the toddler has yet to be found.

The blatant thuggishness of BrexKill there and the coup attempt here isn't a problem due to declining IQ's. There's loads of imported imbeciles to supplement the dumbed down natives. The KGB had to contend with smarter subjects less than 30 years ago. Penn in ace's OP is too stupid even to hide his grift but it really doesn't matter when he pimps his lies to retards.

280 The only person saying that the father "sold" the little girl is the woman who's been arrested for kidnapping her, and who is definitely a psychopath and probably a murderer.

-
Interesting true crime show the other day. Mom hires family friend to kill her 20 year old daughter. Daughter was a stripper, whore, addict who had been arrested for a drive by shooting. Over Mom's objection, Dad paid the $100,000 bond for her to be released pending trial. Mom was afraid daughter would bolt and they'd lose the $100,000. And she was right! Killer lured her out in the middle of nowhere by promising her a guy who'd sell her a car cheap so she could flee.

I realize that President Trump is supposed to be the Omniscient God Emperor, but this just blew up today, and he might have a few other things on his plate.

Also, he's not actually in charge of the government (no Republican has been since Nixon) until the civil service laws are reformed so he can hire and fire like he could as CEO.

False hope, I'm afraid. We are seeing even now what happens when populaces go against the ruling class grain: coups and blatantly ignoring democratic processes.


You probably are right, though. Throw in European Muslim enclaves that already act in the same manner as sanctuary cities in the United States, and it's a prescription for unmitigated disaster.

I dunno' - you may have it down. They don't have the means to rise up. Maybe if a Franco or Mussolini gets in charge and leads it top-down.

I can't fathom - honestly just can't - living in the middle of a Rotherham, or being kin to a Tommy Johnson, and doing nothing. I just can't.
