Fake News CNN Pushes False Story About AR-15 Purchase

    It’s becoming clear that most mainstream media news is nothing more than globalist propaganda.  CNN’s Chris Cuomo proved that when he pushed a story about a lying kid who said he purchased an AR-15 without an ID.  But Cuomo was busted, then continued to deflect from the fact that he pushed a fake story.

    CNN’s Chris Cuomo retweeted the account of one @usaphotodude quoting a reporter named Cody Davis on Tuesday. The tweet read, “I was able to buy an AR-15 in five minutes. I’m 20 and my ID is expired.” There’s only one problem: that never happened. The article itself states, “After [the sales representative] walked me through the paperwork, all five pages of it, I told him I changed my mind and wanted to think more before I bought an AR-15. He told me it wasn’t a problem and listed the store hours if I wanted to come back. I then said thank you and walked back to my car.”

    The tweet actually says that the gut never filled out paperwork, a necessary step to purchasing a gun, which would then be run through the background check system.  But Cuomo obviously didn’t read that part or didn’t care. And then deflected the conversation and lied further.

    According to the Daily Wire, when called on it, Cuomo tweeted, “Isn’t the point that the kid’s age and lack of ID wasn’t a deterrent? and this isn’t all gun shops. Place I bought my shotgun basically goes farther than the law requires and makes judgments about whom to sell to. Point is the system should be better.”

    Which, of course, is not the point. The point is that Cuomo tweeted out false information. National Review’s Charles Cooke pointed that out:

    https://twitter.com/charlescwcooke/status/966294506948751360

    The point is, CNN is full of antigun wackos who don’t care about individual rights.  As long as the government is all powerful and remains their savior, they will push propaganda and even bold-faced lies as a means of manipulating public opinion regardless of facts.

        Never believe anything these CNN people say. Cannot believe the world these days. Who watches this crap anyway. Why do I read this sh#t?

      2. Chunk

        CNN might as well just be honest about their newsworthiness and hire Baghdad Bob as their number one anchor.

      3. Wilson

        Age was not a factor, 20 is old enough to buy a long gun or a shotgun. Cuomo is a fool.

        • Kevin2

          “Cuomo is a fool.”

          Actually he is a manipulator, a disseminator of dishonesty. The people who listen to and believe him are fools.

            And he is actually very good at it.

          “It’s becoming clear….”????

          It’s been clear for a long time. The MSM has always lied.

      4. Anonymous

        Whether a story is true or not is meaningless.

        The majority of people will have heard it and no matter what transpires later about it the majority of people will form their opinions from it and continue with believing them no matter what may come out about it later on.

        • Old Sailor

          Yep. Saw one of the students meeting with the POTUS yesterday tell the POTUS he had seen this story. Tell a lie big enough, long enough and to enough people……..The liberal way!

      5. BF

        I’m not surprised by Cuomo’s willful ignorance. His brother does it every single day in my state of N.Y.

      6. Heartless

        Forget our criticism of the lie, look at the trend and what’s really happening. The media needs a new direction (Russian ‘interference’ just hasn’t worked out too good); so, it’s going to be the eradication of the 2nd Amendment and the bringing about confiscation. Which will (maybe not initially, but eventually…) cause the chaos that is needed to bring into to being the real goal. Total socialism. Wait and see boys and girls, wait and see.

      7. Anonymous

        A kid (or anyone considered to be “unstable”) might indeed get (be supplied with) such a gun (one that private citizens are outlawed from having) from government. You see, it’s the disarmament-of-the-public narrative that is the key objective in all these inane, implausible, mysteriously-facilitated mass shootings typically within already gun-controlled “weapons-free” zones. For, an armed public might be able to resist an overtly-tyrannical, totalitarian police state. Hence, disarming the public is ominously necessary before such total government can be overtly manifested.

        I really like the phrase, “useful idiots.” These guys think they are going to be protected by the government. How unrealistic can they be, it takes even legitimate LE too long to help in many situations. This guy must make enough to hire protection.

          This is in reply to my moderated comment:
          If you take off the 5 biggest gun control cities we would be 200th or so. If you broke it down by which race committed the crime it would speak for itself….

            We are #1 in gun ownership and 92nd in homicides BUT the homicide thing is ALL homicides not just gun homicides…

      9. the blame-e

        This same crap was tried by former United States Representative Gabby Giffords and her astro-nut husband Mark Kelly.

        After being shot in the face by Jared Loughner (which apparently didn’t smarten her up any), she and her husband became pawns for the gun control lobbyists.

        So convinced were the Giffords and Kelly (you would really think astronauts would be smarter than this), by the anti-gun rhetoric, that Kelly went into a gun shop where he was taken aback by the owner handing him the paperwork authorizing a required background check.

        The whole shameful mess was caught on video.

        And once again. Here we are. All graduates of the Joseph Goebbels school of propaganda where if you tell a lie long enough it miraculously becomes the truth. Or something like that.

          That quote originated in “Mien Kampf” Hitler’s autobiography. In it Hitler calls 3ews liars. Hitler says that 3ews don’t tell little lies, they tell great big super big lies. Hitler goes on to explain that the 3ews get away with this because although the German may tell little lies about things, it simply would never happen that Germans would make up fantastical huge lies. So Germans, who are basically honest, can’t imagine anyone making up a great big fat lie. That’s why Germans get lied to by 3ews. Hitler, referring to 3ew lies, “if you tell a big enough lie you will be believed”.

        The journalists say what they are paid to say.

        A journalist told the American people who believed him, that White Russian Christians were not, as rumored, starving.

        He knew this to be a lie.

        7 to 10 million or more Russians, living primarily in Ukrain, died of starvation.

          Yup but that ain’t nothing compared to whats coming in the next 20-30 years. You wanna see starvation and disease? It’s coming in spades! Good luck to you that have kids….just hope you don’t live to see their suffering.

              From What??? How about forced poverty, serious economic ruin cuz govts. and corporations have no money to operate or stay in business. Societal breakdown due to massive infrastructure collapse and total closure of ALL social programs that could help the masses.

              The only possible saving grace would be if there was still some wealthy oligarchs left to run a 1984 style forced labor society that provides you with some food and all the drugs you would ever need.

        Sounds like my state government.

        • Genius

          Mainstream journalists are obviously psycopaths (devoid of morality, conscionce, empathy, and self serving). The exact same goes for most govt. employees as they know what they are doing is wrong but do it anyway for a paycheck. Politicians, cops, troops, etc. fall into this category big time. You could not pay me enough to be an evil piece of shit lying, traitorous, scumbag, untrue to myself, servant to the state of evil, mercinary for the bankers, pile of shit! I’d rather wallow in the dirt than sell my soul for a few paper/ cyber satans. I sleep well!

            G,
            As a Vietnam era Vet I take a little offense at being lumped in with cops, government employees, and politicians.
            Since I was in after the My Lai massacre, we were taught to follow all lawful orders, but if it violated your values, do not follow that order. Keeping in mind you may get busted, for non-execution of a lawful order.
            Understand that if you are in the military, your job is to follow orders, but not to do very obviously evil things. eg. gas unarmed people, shoot un-armed people in a ditch, throw kids out of aircraft, to get parents to “talk”, you get the idea.

            • Genius

              relik, I understand what you are saying. I have many vietnam vet friends. That war is a different animal. It was a draft with threats from the (govt.). People then probably had more trust in the govt. too. Now we have the internet and it is the greatest info age EVER. Yet people just use it for entertainment and are as stupid as ever. I personally would have thrown my draft papers in the trash and gone jeremiah Johnson on them and killed anyone who came for me but that is a personal decision. I completely understand the fear of govt. and the lack of info back then. Vietnam vets are not part of what I’m talking about, I feel for them and like I said, I have many of them as good friends. The middle east shit is a completely different story. We had internet and info and experience that so many chose to just throw out the window and be a mercinary for the globalist cartel without one ounce of thought whatsoever. Like John Wayne said “If your going to be stupid, you better be tough”. The propaganda bullshit they threw out on 911 was insane. People ate it up like candy and went on a BS patriotic frenzy. I couldn’t believe how many people were fooled by that obvious FF attack. You my man have a pass, it was different times indeed. It baffles me why anyone would throw away all their rights to be a slave mercinary for the global NWO bunch without a second thought. Probably why there are so many fucked up vets coming back from there. Reality slapped them in the face and I can’t imagine how horrible that would be to deal with….

              • Genius

                I have to tell you another thing. My stepdads brother went to Nam and I remember (I was a lil kid) him coming over flashing a bunch of cash around and how he liked killing gooks. He was signing up for a second tour because he loved the action and killing. That fucker is one of the biggest piles of shit I ever met in my life. There were many like him though, psycopathic freakshows. There still is in the military and always will be…. Given the chance… I will kill them.

        This story has more holes in it than an onion sack..The 20 year old is so full of shit It’s coming out his ears ..Notice he claims to have an expired ID yet admits to going back to his car after leaving the store..If he didn’t have a valid drivers license (Which is REQUIRED BY LAW TO PURCHASE a Firearm at firearm dealerships) how did he get to the store to begin with? If he drove to the store,he was already breaking the law before ever arriving at the store by not having a valid drivers license..Notice how that’s conveniently ignored in this story…There was absolutely NO WAY possible this guy was leaving the store with that gun unless he had a valid drivers license,filed out the paperwork,wasn’t a convicted felon,and paid for it..If this guy is going to tell lies,at least make the lies sound believable..This is total BS…

        Seems many have come to accept infringement? A act of treason? A can of worms? Incremental death by a thousand cuts? Go along to get along? The sqeaky wheel won’t get grease? Compromise with the domestic enemy? That might not turn out good?

      16. Traitor Hator

        Seems the advancements in body armor are making ARs problematic? Blind them with birdshot might become the new tech? Semiauto ban? Pump your way out? A rifled choke tube spreads shot one inch per foot at low light , and increases accuracy of slug in high light. And reduces recoil dramaticly as load pulls at rifling. Birdshot is dirt cheap and buckshot is still 50 cents per round? A blind traitor is better then a dead traitor? Blind them with birdshot . Less shoveling?

      17. Ketchupondemand

        Some great info on State of the Nation on operation Gladio C about the Fla. episode.
        Also look into the chemtrail spraying operation there. An interview via a 3rd party from one of the pilots.
        After reading both those stories I’d say the world is really f**ked.

        Sincerity is of major importance to most people;if you can fake that, you’ll have it made. Remember Brian Williams who lied about his helicopter having come under fire in Iraq? He was suspended. Other news commentators have been fired for making up news stories. With CNN you probably get fired if you don’t!

        So the guy with the expired ID who wants to ban Guns with lies about how easy it is to get one walked back to his car and I would assume drove home illegally with an expired license? Take his driving privileges and take his car that’s way more dangerous statistically than a firearm. If he has no license he probably is uninsured as well. What a hypocrite.
