Ticking Virus Problem

In the last few weeks, we watched as self-isolation became a thing, the stock market sank to a bear market, stores and businesses shut down, streets were emptied. All of which were based on a pandemic from China killing people and wrecking the economy.

Now media runs to remote microphones to sensationalize every symptom created by it and to forecast gloom and doom jobless claims and recession. The good old fear-mongering left has lots of ammunition. From bailouts to healthcare, to hoarding on main street.

But what would you expect? You shut down most of the economy and there will be problems. I compare it to turning off a light switch and then complaining it is dark.

We cannot compare it to a regular recession or typical unemployment woes. Yet the media is all over it as if they were one and the same. They are trying hard to fit this crisis into that same box. Statistics cry for context.

Never mind that when you turn the light switch back on it will not be darkness anymore. The problem with the left and this crisis is that they cannot plug in their usual talking points and factoids to color the situation. But that doesn’t stop them from trying. When you turn off part of the economy, there are consequences. We know that.

Beneath it all it is still a biological problem. You know how liberals deal with biological problems; they abort them.

But this one needs to run its course and be defeated, not celebrated as a political weapon to attack Trump. Think of the consequences avoided by taking the actions we did.

Even the root problem in all this is not really COVID –19, it is Democrats still grieving over their loss in 2016. And the cure to that problem is to defeat them again. It must be done for survival sake.

Some Like It Hard

After years of accusing Trump of being an authoritarian dictator, media and the left now demand he enact martial law. They want unilateral action and they want it now.

Another consideration for your consumption, instead of media talking points: Trump signs the Defense Production Act and then they scream but he has not used it yet. Prove it if you have or else “why not?”

And they ask so if he now has the capability, having enacted the power. then where are the tens of millions of masks and supplies? These people don’t know anything about physical production. Merely enacting a power does not make things magically appear at will.

I will say seeing Trump effectively close the borders does put a big smile on my face.

“Lives are at stake,” they say, thousands of lives. People that proudly aborted over 60 million lives suddenly have an immediate obsession with saving lives. Sure, they are the compassionate ones.

Scuttle Coronavirus & Passing Gas

I could have written a longer piece explaining my thoughts about Coronavirus but honestly, who really cares? In fact, no one cares what media says about COVID-19 either. And you can’t blame them.

But there are two emerging problems: a biological problem and the economical one; the former caused the latter. Yet there is still a confidence crisis as well.

So what is there left to say? Everyone knows the story.

But there is something to say about young people carelessly worshiping the sun on crowded beaches as the rest of us hunker down.

We went from talking about socialism at the beginning of the year to taking about social distancing in 6 weeks. The only thing the left cared about on their radar was impeaching Trump – and politics in general.

So is it any surprise that they and their media comrades would play politics with a deadly virus? If even that could not break their psychosis of hating Trump, then it tells you all you need to know about the political left. They have no shame or conscience.

Now I see the glaring similarity between the sunbathing beach-combers and the media. The eat, drink and be merry youth don’t care. (middle finger on a T-shirt) The media reveals the only thing they are capable of is shameless gotcha politics, in reality denial.

But both have forgotten, or plain don’t give a flying shit, that the rest of the country is making countless sacrifices to help save others and stop a pandemic.

Why should we take either of them seriously anymore?

Meanwhile, the minute Trump doesn’t take the pandemic seriously, even for a second, it is treasonous. That is headline material.

Socialism Is On The Ballot In 2020

Socialism is very much on the ballot in the 2020 election. How could it not be?

When did this socialism takeover happen? Oh, it is not a recent discovery. It would have to go way back. But they kept that closet closed and pretty well guarded. Evidenced by how Bernie was not mainstream until recent years. He wasn’t a rock star. He was a lead weight they did not want to get too tied to.

But then you have to make an admission about the current state of Democrats. There are a lot of socialism deniers in the Democrat Party. (That is not the same as denying socialism) They can disassociate with the term socialist if they want to. They can call it progressive like they usually do. They can even deny that it is about socialism.

But that flies in the face of the truth. We can see it is all about socialism. And has been for some time. Sure they are in denial of most everything, except Bernie.

Something else is going on. Notice the lamestream media, for instance. Just look at the last few weeks. They are struggling because they really cannot address the Bernie issue. Even CNN and MSNBC frowned and danced around the fact that Bernie was gaining in the polls. Then when he started winning they were dumbstruck. Why? That is another matter.

Media were not happy and looking for anyone else they could hold up and promote besides Bernie. See all the attention that went toward Mike Bloomberg? But it is BS in reality. They bemoaned Bernie sucking up all the oxygen. They reject the idea that this is all about socialism. They searched for a way to explain it.

If they didn’t like it, they had one choice, vet him and the ideas he’s pushes like a flood. Do they do that? No.

In the last few days, they are grieving the prospect he is winning and what it means for the Party. They sit and discuss their dislike that he is cannibalizing the primaries and the entire party. (he’s had some practice and never stopped campaigning since 2016)

They gripe about it and yet do not talk about the real problem. They will not address Bernie, his character, record, or ideas. They won’t talk about his bio in depth. (this man who has smitten the base by storm) They will not address the issues he is talking about, the cost or the consequences, in depth.

His plans are dismissed like yesterday’s news and tossed into the corner. The cost is not mentioned. The foreign policy he supports is not given an airing. So why not?

Now you know, it is because all those ideas are popular and supported by people. (now anyway) So they cannot criticize the ideas because they are the main entree on DNC’s menu. Of course they are popular. He is the one bold enough to run with them like a true radical. But he does not really explain them because he doesn’t have to, with an empathetic media and cheer leading Marxists in the party.

In other words, they do not dare attack what they all believe in. They all like and believe in these things. It is incredible how they will not take on or criticize the substance of all Bernie’s plans. So they do not like the socialism label because it has a bad image.

Yet they support all the ingredients of socialism. They deny the effects, but they will not deny the ideas. It is very much them. It is nothing new.

Now the dirty little secret is out, they won’t call out the ideas. They will not address the socialism issue either. It is the last thing Democrats want to talk about. “Russia, Russia!”

So they can say they are not socialists all they want. But if they are supporting and voting for Bernie; if they support the ideas and agenda; then they are socialists just the same — no matter what they claim.

When they actively support the ideas and campaign, they are socialists. In some ways they are the worst kind because they don’t realize it. Now it’s the cool morality of socialism.

That is why we cannot say it recently happened. This is who Democrats are; Bernie finally put an end to the questions. But that is who they have been been all along though there was a cognitive denial about it. Bernie already had commies and socialists onboard.

Yet they endorsed all the ideas and basic tenets of socialism for years. The closet is now open and the skeletons loom larger than life.

Full-Court Press

I made the case a few days ago about the personal dichotomy but it goes much larger than that. In this vein you have a positive outlook while there is a volcano of negativity surrounding you constantly. It is the feeling of being bombarded from everywhere by constant negativity no matter what good you see happening. Wonder why?

Meanwhile, the left and its media comrades bash the president on every word they can. What he does in his policies not as much. Most of his policies have had positive outcomes and the fruits are all around us, for anyone who wants to see them. But those never get the attention in the airwaves. Instead we are treated to a cascading critique over every little word he speaks. When Trump zooms in on the fake news, they cry foul and abuse.

Media delivers the goods. They are judge, jury, and executioners — the Full-Court Press.

A perfect example of this playing out was on Don Lemon this week. He had notoriously vile Rick Wilson, Republican turned Republican hater, commenting on the nature of Trump and his supporters. Wilson turned it into a mockery diatribe of dumb, redneck supporters who succumbed to Trump’s every word and command. Lemon busted out laughing to the point of being out of control like it was a comedy show. So they all had a barrel of laughs at the expense of mocking Trump voters.

The following night, Don Lemon’s focus of attack was at Trump for picking on the media. How cruel it was. Press is again the biggest victim. It’s a little hard to feel sorrow for the villainous media when they attack people for voting a certain way.

But when they play that victim card, they demand everyone’s sympathy. And they demand your anger is turned to blame Trump and his nefarious supporters. It’s our fault. How can media be the real victims when they regularly attack voters in prime time?

Never mind the voters and people across the country they insult every day. This creates a nice flashpoint every time they choose to ignite it. In typical faux fashion, Lemon came on the next night, before playing the victim card, claiming he was not laughing at the people but at the joke. But the entire joke was us and the punch line was very clear…. us.

Even though the House Managers put on their slipshod impeachment trial in the Senate, the media treated it with the solemn certitude of a State funeral, complete with nonstop coverage and commentary. But it was a joke. The whole thing was like a comedy sketch with no off ramp that eventually has to end. Everyone knows it but can’t find an exit.

And when it did end, with the predictable results, they poo-poohed their own play as a dismal failure because it did not achieve the desired end. We could have told them that. But instead of blaming their own lousy script and collective performance, they lashed out by attacking the audience for failing to deliver success to them.

No one could convince them their work was only a mockery of the process; they refused to listen. So they created a narrative in the House that didn’t sell in the Senate — and they even went about that deviously. They still want you to see them all as victims.

Did they really think they could sell their creation on perception and glitter? Fool’s gold.

Culture Caldron

Every so often one has to reflect and do a little culture check, the crazier things get.

Leave it to Trump, in one statement, to frame the entire issue in a campaign speech.

From a Des Moines, IA rally, Trump said something like “we are living in the greatest years now in history…. and I just got impeached. Can you believe it?” He got laughs and cheers. They got it.

Think about that analogy a minute. So finally, the economy is really on the upswing, opportunities and wages are up. There are a lot of good things happening.

At the very same time, you look what is happening around you and you can’t help wondering what has gone wrong? I mean the crazy things happening with the anger toward Trump and his supporters. People are desperate to take him down.

Government is running amuck in the Swamp fighting back. Deep state is in a fever pitch.

Yet there are plenty of good things on the horizon, life is good compared to the last ten years. Or it should be. What is with all the mixed signals aimed at us?

On one hand, things are finally improving that we’ve only hoped for over the years. But it is all dampened by this cultural turmoil over everything.

Then we’re told the world only has a few years left. Is it down to the countdown yet? Everything is rotten if you listen to these triggered, crazed people. So the secular world is telling us we are on the verge of apocalypse. Now that is rich, coming from that crowd.

Any joy you should feel is bombarded daily by this message of doom and gloom from Democrats and media. There is so much pent up hostility in them that you wonder if they are living in the same world you are, and seeing the same things?

It’s kind of like Trump, who wins the election only to have them try everything to throw him out. But he won’t go and neither will we. Why should we have to?

What’s wrong with this picture? It is a real dichotomy.

On one hand, there should be plenty to be happy about but the last thing they all want you to be is happy. They really try to make that a challenge.

It seems like Democrats’ job is to make mud pies out of all the good things or destroy them. And they have their hands full trying on that mission.

Here are you and I with everyone else, sitting smack in the middle of this whirlwind of discontent. Plus many of these dissatisfied people believe socialism is a panacea that will take all their worries away. Crazy.

If they can believe in some socialist utopia, then they need help. (not the kind they want)

They just seem to want to bring everyone else down to their misery. It looks like we are the ones who have to live and deal with it because it doesn’t seem to matter to them.

So in a crazy way, Trump is right. Life is great, they want to impeach him and throw him out. Ha ha, as if that would fix any of their problems!

Perennial Bias At Work

Our government used the pretext of Russia to spy on a presidential campaign. And it parlayed that “investigation” into the presidency after Trump entered office.

  • The IG Horowitz report declares it found no documented or admitted political bias in the cause of the investigation.
  • It found 16- 17 problems with how the investigation was handled.
  • Horowitz testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee that no one who touched this entire investigation should feel vindicated.
  • It found fraud committed in the FISA process.
  • The investigation used a dirty Russian-based dossier, paid for bu a political campaign, employing a foreign agent, as evidence in a FISA court for wiretapping + surveillance.

The question of political bias is almost moot now. Does it matter or is it relevant? An investigation has inherent bias, since the purpose is that someone probably did something wrong. But they qualify political bias as a possible concern.. I am concerned about both.

What matters is what they did, errors and all. The central reason political bias seems to matter is based on whether it should have started or not. And was it a basis for the investigation? Was it the purpose of it?

So did we really expect them to call the investigation unjustified? That would have been an automatic indictment on everything they did. It would be a glaring admission. It is doubtful even an Inspector General would be willing to do that.

Putting that bias question aside, the whole rest of the process which followed is an indictment on the cause of that investigation. Why break laws, use sinister conduct or act with malfeasance in investigating a justifiable cause?

And all that conduct happened to be against Trump.

So maybe too much emphasis is placed on whether there was provable political bias in the contamination of the decision to investigate? At least it was all around it. Shouldn’t there be a necessary attempt to eliminate bias? But that is not what we saw.

Back to what we citizen voters think. Much was made about our interpretation of inherent bias in the investigation. Though we had probable cause to suspect and confirm bias in the process. In fact, it almost screamed bias. That no one would have heard those screams would be irresponsible. How could we not see it?

All we heard since it began, and continued in its various forms, is that the FBI and its investigation is above reproach. But that is not what we saw. We saw a natural cause for bias alarm. Yet that we even questioned the FBI or basis of it was the problem.

The whole Russia meddling problem in the election had little to do with Trump. They did not seem as interested in investigating Russian meddling as they were in investigating Trump collaboration. Russia was the predicate to investigate Trump.

Now if we had fraud in the investigating itself, we certainly had it in spades in the media reporting all along. It amplified whatever government was doing, both publicly and behind closed doors. You could label the reason for it as political bias. But does it matter? The media were doing what they were doing. Do we have to prove what effect their political bias had in order to validate whether it existed? That would seem absurd.

Yet the entire cabal boils down to that one simple fact: our Government used Russia as a pretext to investigate Trump, in an election and after. Period. Nothing changes that.

But Cardinal Comey calls our fears, analysis, criticisms and conclusions “all made up.

Pre-rebuttal of the IG Report

Leaks, lies, coups and liars’ legacies = just some procedural Bullshit?

Incidentally, if you don’t like the word bullshit then you may elect to skip this piece.

When is enough enough? Let me start by writing backwards, the way government usually does things. (in reverse) Starting with a premise and working backward to origination.

Synopsis: media has broken their cone of silence to actually talk about the upcoming IG Horowitz. Until now that has been a forbidden topic of conversation. Now, armed with numerous leaks, I presume they’re trying to manipulate our expectations for the report.

At first it seemed like they were just trying to get out ahead of it for damage control, to spin the outcome and temper our expectations. But now it looks like there may be something to what they are saying. (even if they’ve been in denial for 3 years.)

Then this report only becomes part of the cover-up.

Cut the bullshit:: This is a government report justifying what government did.

We should be clear on that. It’s what government does. And when government covers up for itself, it is doing what government does. When regular people do that, it is called a cover-up – considered worse than the crime in many cases.

All definitions from here on go into the trashcan – other than for bullshit. They, government, can alter or rewrite definitions as they go. The word ™*They in this form shall stand for government… or big, Deep State government.

Let me say this is not about the why *They did what *They did — other than the original investigation — but about what *They did. I think the motives are self-evident. *They, as in government, includes the head of the administration apparatus at the time, Obama.

Leaks of the document are flowing out daily.

They come from somewhere. You have to assume from within the *They apparatus. Reporters and MSM are only to happy to put them out there. (apparently sanctioned) Something about toning down or lowering expectations, I presume.

The conclusions of the report leaked out basically say the Trump investigation was justified from the onset. That the Carter Page probe was justified. But that there were some departmental problems, which he is going to point out, including how the “lower level” lawyer under James Baker altered FISA documents. Nevertheless, it did not change the outcome of this justifiable investigation, or its merits. Chew that slowly.

Yet there is no underlying problem with the integrity of the investigation itself, only some processes of it. Gee, and downhill from there on it goes. This starts to sound like every other “report” that has come out prior. But look at the accusations flying about everything Trump does. Put common sense aside.

In other words, what they are saying – if the report verifies it — is that the report is basically inconsequential as to the outcome of this Hoax. It is only relevant so far as procedural errors it quibbles with. But if it validates that the cooked up investigation and subsequent deep state coup was justified, then it becomes a part of the substantiation of the whole thing. See how this works? This IG look-see validates what *They did.

So unofficially, this IG Report could be called the cleanup detail of DOJ. One of the major problems it has is being released smack in the middle of an impeachment process. Whatever you think of the latter… and what a long winding road that has been: filled with innuendo, lies, dirt-digging politics and conspiracy theories etc. (dirt digging on Trump)

Maybe all we have witnessed to now is a natural byproduct of the “fundamental change” Obama promised. It certainly appears that way.

Now that they know *They can operate this way and have sweeping influence, it sets a precedent for future coups or phony investigations. Proof that it all works and can be very effective – even using CIA sources. Do you really think it is only Trump who would be subject to this radical insurrection of an interconnected cabal? Think again.

Imagine the extreme irony of Democrats doing a major investigation and impeachment process over digging dirt on a political opponent… while what they have done for 4 years was a political dirt-digging operation on a candidate and then a president.

This whole thing combined is nothing more than an effort to bring down the President, and all it has ever been for three years. Now they bring in the IG of itself, to justify itself, by posing as an independent critic of itself. And all predicated on grade-A BS.

Of, by, and for Deep State

Our government was weaponized against a political opponent. Obama politicized it entirely and then it naturally became weaponized. The problem for Democrats is that it was not politicized or weaponized by Trump. We know the beginning, the means, and the desired outcome — none of which aligns with Trump’s objectives.

Isn’t it extremely odd that no one would pay any attention to Ukraine before? You could not force media/coverage to talk about Ukraine. Why? The many tentacles DNC and Democrats had working in Ukraine. To even mention Ukraine was labeled a conspiracy theory. Ukraine itself was branded as a conspiracy. Now Ukraine is elevated to the most important place at the intersection of corruption and politics, at the most critical time in national politics. But Trump didn’t do all that.

Isn’t it also funny that after the Trump rally in Florida, the media is squealing like stuffed pigs about the president’s use of the word Bullshit? Yet it is the one word in our language that could possibly encompass all *They and their media allies have done to him and our last election. That word cuts through the smoke and mirrors.

And still the only thing that matters to these people is the next election, and defeating Trump. That government is still politicized and weaponized, ready and available. Media is still *Its biggest ally. Democrats are still engaged in election politics against their political opponent – and wiling to use any means at their disposal against it. (that opponent has also become the people, as it always does!)

Then came the IG report that media spins as an expected barn-burner that isn’t. Apparently they got their way. The report they refused to acknowledge as necessary or meaningful before, suddenly now becomes a central asset to knock down any “conspiracies” about what really took place in the 2016 election. (the truth)

According to these media reports: the Counterintelligence investigation on Trump was properly predicated and properly launched. So the rest is justified history.

That means it is 4-500 pages of meaningless procedural minutia that did not generally affect the overall investigation. Thus, the investigation was credible while there are outstanding procedural, process problems. That concept needs some explaining.

Message: nothing to see here. Move along. Government was justified in its overreaching investigation which turned into a full-blown bloodless coup. More CYA for the cover-up.

Even the Bullshit is getting old — calling a spade what it is, and an IG Report what it is.

Impeachment Ground Zero: narratives and lies

A cartoon needs to be drawn of today’s events, and the caption should read

“This is your government on politics.”

In the media, historian Jon Meacham on MSNBC certified that Republicans are a Jonestown Cult. Pelosi has called Trump an imposter. Media are far from finished on this day of revision and government radicalized by politics – made to MSNBC’s order.

Fiona Hill, another Dem star witness, posits how it must be impossible for two nations to interfere or meddle in our elections at the same time. So the Russian hoax theme is on full display. And the people that push it are again on the world stage.

Somewhere in the near background of Moscow, is a laughing Putin that Democrats are impeaching Trump over Ukraine. He couldn’t have written a better script.

Speaking of scripts and writers, Democrats’ lousy drama is bad enough but their screenwriting is even worse.

Mark Levin Smacks Down Fox’s Ed Henry

Another leftist media talking point explodes on Fox.

Ed Henry goes down in flames repeating the lamestream’s verbiage.

“Your question is not honest”:
Mark Levin blasts Fox’s Henry about Trump-Ukraine phone call

See: https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/your-question-is-not-honest-mark-levin-blasts-foxs-ed-henry-for-trump-ukraine-phone-call/

No one wants to stand up for right and wrong. Just stick to the lying leftist, media narrative. Stick to the lousy script.

Lamestream Media is not in the news business, they are in the narrative business.

Henry is not concerned about the 3-year Big Dig operation on Trump. That’s copacetic.

“Are you okay with that….are you okay with that?” I’m sick of that.

Media Vultures

In the good old days, Johny Carson might make a joke in his monologue something like “the media is so bad”. To which Ed McMahon would say “how bad is it, Johnny?” Carson would nail it saying “it’s so bad that ….” But those days are gone and so are most of the jokes. Now it’s sort of pathetic that media is the standing joke. But no one is laughing.

In those days the media might have taken a cue from the national criticism. Not today. Judging by their current reaction to criticism, they cannot be shamed or even insulted. However, they feel so offended that Trump called them the enemy of the people.

As the IG report on Comey came out, media took a pass for the most part. CNN didn’t really mention it. MSNBC looked for anything else to talk about, including the Dick Cheney hunting mishap. What happened was the IG was compelled to put out an 80 page report on what Comey did.

Last week, CNN foisted the bombshell canard about an asset in the Kremlin that had to be whisked out because Trump was about to out him. Except it didn’t happen. Well that storyline got dropped real quick. What asset, what story?

That story was probably meant to detract from the not so convenient news about the left’s coup and the investigation of it. Sure, no one needs to bother with that.

Then we have the big story about another Kavanaugh accusation. The witness does not remember the incident. NYT was forced to back peddle and said they inadvertently left that part of it out of the story. They had to delete tweets and edit it. The author of the column threw NYT under the buss for having the policy of not naming witnesses.

So naturally that part got left out because of their policy. Say what? You mean NYT cannot mention a witness doesn’t remember anything without naming her?

While over at CNN, they discussed the non-story. Paul Begala let it be known that Democrats will never stop on the Kavanaugh issue. He said they are going to keep it alive forever. It will never ever die. So truth or reality means nothing to those folks.

NYT committed another intentional error when it said in Tweeting a piece on 9-11 that 18 years ago planes took aim at the Twin Towers in NY. They went further than ILhan Omar saying said that the planes did it. Omar at least grumbled that some people did something — without saying who or what. See how the left works? Then NYT had to delete and edit that storyline, too. But it did fit with media ignoring the 9-11 commemoration.

This is not news. The lamestream media are in the narrative business. It isn’t news at all.

Some people did do something, all right. Well, it was not rogue keyboards conspiring.

9-11 The Infamy Wears Off

It is that important national day of 9-11, once again, with all that it entangles. I find myself still in a constant state of mourning for all the families and great loss of that day, 18 years ago today — feeling more like it’s been 18 months. The kind of loss so big that it always leaves a lump in my throat.

But now, on this day, I am also in mourning for something else. I mourn the loss of CNN, too. Yes, you heard me right, grief not grievance.

I remember back in the early 90’s when CNN was a fledgling news channel as it covered the first Iraq war, Dessert Storm. I recall C-130 Hercules transport planes flying non-stop overhead 24 hours a day in a perpetual pattern. I was told that’s what they were.

For the up to date information, you could turn to CNN as a source for news. Wolf Blitzer was on location there somewhere reporting what was going on. It was called the first televised war — even if that was a distortion. CNN was one voice in a vacuum demanding real-time information. We needed to know what was happening in a country finding its war and defensive posture. CNN was there. Maybe reports were not complete or up to the second but it is all we had. In fact, before it started we were well aware of circumstances via media reports. No internet to rely on either.

Contrast that with the menu of cable news we have now, with Internet and social media compliments. It’s almost hard to imagine that CNN was so prominent of a news source then. But those days are gone, and so is CNN as a credible news source.

So today I am mourning that loss as well as 9-11. Back on 9-11, 2001, CNN tried to keep up with a slurry of news. They tried, at least temporarily, to provide unbiased coverage. I have to say, by then, Fox did a better job. Cable went commercial free for days in wall-to-wall coverage. We were mostly a unified nation, even if George Bush was the President. (Not Al Gore)

The bad guys were in the deserts and mountains of Afghanistan. A new area we didn’t know that much about. So much to do and say. Before a military response, there were debates in Congress and they lined up supporting force. Only a few outliers.

Well, with all the mourning today, there are a number of things regarding 9-11 that can anger me like almost nothing else. Those are: lack of respecting or accepting the attack for what it was, trivializing the sanctity of the day; drawing unreasonable parallels or equating other acts of violence to it; using that historical event to promote other partisan political agendas; giving short shrift to victims of that day that continue to mount; or depriving those victims of dialogue and justice that still evades them all these years later. Or, basically misusing the memory or sacred observance of the day. (even 18 years after)

But CNN manages to do about all those, on the day it is memorialized in 2019. And they did it as a matter of programming, which reveals planning. I could list endless poof and examples but that is more writing than I care to do now. I shouldn’t have to that is obvious. It is not only CNN but the entire left does the same. It is not nit-picking.

So cable news chose to talk about gun control, the impeachment agenda and normal partisan gotcha politics. There are 364 other days in the year and that is not enough, they have to corrupt this one too, like everything else?

No, they could not even be bothered to respect the memory and events of the day. They must defile the day’s memory and its significant importance. Nothing is sacred.

Congratulations, CNN, because today you earned the “enemy of the people” title anew!

Media’s Sellout, Tale of the Toll

From a secluded and undisclosed location, I have been thinking up wacky things to write. Not actually but play along. This time I have found yet another provocative idea.

It seems the outrageous and provocative get all the press’s attention these days. Well, except on the right, where we get banned or marginalized for saying what sounds crazy to media’s ears. In that strain, this must offend them and presses their ridicule buttons.

So in this episode of crazy talk with your inflammatory host, this one fits with the other stranger than fiction stuff I’ve thought up for years. “Conspiracies” are so yesterday.

But it starts with the quaint story of Obama we all know. Now that he has finally been out of office for a few years, where is the little scum merchant and what has he been up to? Oh, he’s hobnobbing with the rich and powerful. He was sailing in paradise, selling faux books, still giving occasional lectures that “this is not who we are” and purchasing his own multi-million dollar abode on the Martha’s Vineyard coast. The world is his oyster.

Between all that, I’m sure he has time to follow the news. Remember he always counted on it to tell him what he did not know when in office. “I just found out in the press, like you,” were code words. Living the high life, it turns out, is not the only thing he dabbles in.

In my scenario, Obama managed to do what no other president has done or maybe no other single person. (yes, you can argue whether he really is a single human being or a poster boy for the global power conglomerate) He managed this accomplishment, or solidified it, before leaving office. Now he is in the catbird seat enjoying the fruits.

Obama now controls the media. That is for all practical purposes and matters of official capacity. He controls the whole cabal of the national press. He cannot continue on without them and they cannot operate without him attached to the masthead. How is this you might ask? It’s really very simple. They gave up their loyalty and freedom of the press long ago. Being out of office means nothing… yet it means everything at the same time.

He can finally assert his stealthy but direct control in the way he couldn’t before. It doesn’t involve daily phone calls or meetings with boards, though it easily could. He doesn’t have to. That may have been a subtle seduction at first but progressed over time.

For all intents and purposes he owns the media cabal. They sold themselves to Obama dirt cheap, he only now has realized the totality of that control. He is hardly what you’d expect from any other former president. I do like saying former but that means very little. With the control of the press apparatus, he does not have to be the president anymore. It makes no difference. He is the guy at the top and what he says goes. No he doesn’t have to busy himself in daily personnel decisions. All that mundane stuff is just done in his honor.

And the American press know it whether they care to admit it or not. They are fine with this incestuous relationship but it is a done deal. They are at his beckon call if he avails himself of it or not. There is no question it operates for him exclusively. Sure, that is where the global control comes in you might say, as it does with his ideology. Though he is the king of the national press and media operation.

For the press cabal, this is for keeps. They are there explicitly to defend him and his legacy. They are there to keep history being written a certain way, to his benefit. They are there to guarantee it just like there was an insurance poliy in the event Trump was elected. Actually, it is all part of the same cabal. It operates to protect Obama. You could not even hope for a better situation than that.

If you want proof of this relationship and what it means in events, you only have to look at the aftermath coverage of the Mueller Report and the Report on Comey last week. Rabid press coverage validates this incestuous pattern. They will do anything to protect Obama, whatever it takes or costs. Medias’ fate is wrapped with Obama’s legacy and vice versa.

At first they seemed like a cute couple in puppy love, and then evolved into the evil power duo which functions as one criminal enterprise. Slaves to agenda, they could not function apart from each other. Someone has to to say what is obviously the rotten reality.

Editorial Down

Get this, the lamestream media is finally wondering if people might be tuned out? What gives them that idea? They also complain that it is noisy.

Frankly, even I am getting a little tired of responding to the triggered editorials. Seen one crazed flame-out editorial, you seen them all. In this era at least. Yet I’ll describe what you need to know about this rant. I’m only amazed that they haven’t run out of adjectives to describe Trump yet. Now they are working on us voters who supported him.

But this will have to be a twofer because another flame-out column occurred on the subject days ago. Again, a Washington Post columnist. What is it with WaPo, do they believe they are leading the sedition? It is the left’s way of creating the narrative for the week.

https://www.foxnews.com/media/trump-republican-party-2020-burn-down

In that one she calls for burning down the Republican Party. And she says they must get rid of every last Trump supporter or we will reassemble and do this again. She only says what all the Left thinks. Then, just like clockwork, she ran off to MSNBC to spread her venom on air to anyone that had missed her vitriolic hatred in Washington Post.

No, these people never take a break. So now another one pops up to suggest people have tuned out. Gee, what was your first clue? The people tuned out months ago. The only ones flailing about are the Leftists and socialist radicals. So MSM has been talking to themselves for months, which is kind of funny. If they really are so “exhausted,” wouldn’t you think they would have toned it down or eased up a smidgen?

Another indicator that’s a lie, like everything else they say. Actually, they should be exhausted, they tried everything they could to attack Trump and remove him from office. Now they admit they are exhausted. That really is funny, they’re exhausted.

Maybe they should have realized that before driving themselves bat shit crazy. At least they drove the entire Left crazy with them. Maybe what they mean is they exhausted all their resources, too, and Trump is still there and so are we. We aren’t going away.

They certainly have run out of anything new. We’ve seen and heard it all before anyway. They just repeat the same old stuff. And you think people are tuning out? Wonder why? It sounds even worse than it did the first time.

But people don’t believe the news anymore now. They noticed that too. The media has even less credibility as time goes on. If they all wouldn’t have fallen off the side of Alcatraz, they might have some cred. One thing for sure, they will never admit they made a mess of themselves and the press. But they have no one else to blame — not Trump, not the people, not even Republican’s. This is all their craziness.

When Drama Meets Trauma

Look out; today I am going to tell you something that will shock your conscience. In fact, you might never look at the issue the same way again. This will change your thinking about it. I promise you, the things I will reveal will alter the national discussion about the issue. All carefully sourced, of course. (File that next to all the other bunk.)

Mark this date on your calendar. (as you would any other date)

How many times have you heard things like this? It’s called dramatic flare and I have about as much of it as anyone. It is sensationalism. News and media often use it. Scratch that, they are extreme addicts of it. That sets us up for some drama karma.

I sometimes wonder if they are sensationalizing that much, then what is the purpose? I mean whether the story is sensational or not is the real point. Not whether one can breathe some sensational effect into it. (that is not the story) So I am caught in a quandary over all the need to sensationalize. Isn’t there enough of it out there already?

Like when Sean Hannity comes on every weeknight telling us “my sources are telling me the stuff that is coming will shock the conscience of the nation.” He says it at least every other night. “If reports are true, and I believe they are.”

Then after that, nothing. There is no proverbial explosion of “news” too hot to handle. No stunning revelations that will mark this place in time to be remembered forever. Nope, it’s dullsville afterward. Of course the leading question is ‘what does he know, what is this big news?’ It starts a web of questions: “Are we really going to find out everything that happened this time?” “Are people finally going to jail over this corruption.”… “Is this when accountability finally starts, for real this time?’

Then he or any of the other news pushers tell you to “stay tuned.” In other words, just continue to sit on the edge of your seats wringing your hands, waiting. Even as they are speaking, stay glued to your seat and do not change the channel. “We’ll tell you when we come back…” Uh huh, day after day.

I once compared this idiom of news coverage as the equivalent of marching people up to the rooftop and telling them “now just wait, we’ll come back for you. We are going to give you the news you’ve been hoping for. Just hang on and….wait!” How far off is that?

And when they don’t return, the story doesn’t come, or the news they hope for doesn’t arrive, then what? Well “just continue to wait.” It only works so long.

Notice what happened to Rachael Maddow, her ratings went into the toilet. It was after 2 and half years of fomenting promises that this will happen and that will happen. It didn’t… and now she isn’t — the top news prognosticator even of the left.

How many times have we heard all these things? Benghazi ring a bell? It proves the rule not the exemption. Do they think we’ve all been hypnotized? (cue soundtrack)

Face it we are in perpetual wait mode for all of it. When media does not deliver, it does not bode well. That’s all I’m saying. The last thing you want to think is that a person is only doing it for their own self-promotion. But these days it’s the first thing you must think about. That happens all the time.

Though the people just want honest information. They want the story and nothing but the story. And we get anything but the story. We get hype or “irrational exuberance.”

A word about my anonymity.

Some people may wonder why the anonymity? I can tell you what it is not. I am not a top Hollywood celeb hiding behind anonymity to protect my conservative views because I will be blacklisted if it were known. I am not an embedded insider informant, veiled in a cloak of anonymity. I am not a person who’s life would be wrecked if my identity were exposed.

No to all of that, however, I do protect my identity on the Internet from trolls or people who attack the messenger rather than the message. People who only want to use your identity as a weapon against you.

We’ve now seen what the left is really capable of. They’ll stop and nothing when it comes to politics. Why do some people refuse to engage in politics? It’s not hard to understand. The nature of the radical politics of weaponizing everything today is very profound and real. There are no limits for the Left. While on this side, we’re only a happy coalition of one.

Waiting causes other symptoms. They are all just chasing the news. They are not running down the story, they are chasing the news cycle. And Trump proved this better than anyone ever did. Sometimes I think he wants to send them on a wild journey. They will literally spend hours discussing what he says. Heck, Democrats want to impeach him for his words. They’d like to impeach him for his thoughts, too, but that is even more difficult. They’re working on it.

So what is it we all do while we just wait? Tap our fingers? We have lives, we do our thing. The fact that a bombshell hasn’t dropped is good cause or reason to think one is not in the offing anytime soon. Until then, we wait like trained seals in a circus. (sorry, they don’t have circuses anymore. We are the circus.) If we follow their breadcrumbs that is.

Like many people, sure, I’m tired of the waiting. “It’s coming.” I’ll tell you what I am not expecting and what is likely not coming — even if I am hoping. I don’t expect justice to take them all down like dominos in a couple of months. I’d say the odds on that are greater than hitting the lottery. As some say, “it just is not going to happen… or any time soon.”

A personal note:

Sometimes if I am writing a special piece, not always, I might be listening to music or a song. I’m not claiming it has any direct influence on content but it helps inspire me. For instance in writing this I was listening to “It keeps you running” by Michael McDonald and the Doobie Brothers. Oh that voice. Now you decide if it had any effect, or not?

But that isn’t the purpose of the music. It is just a tool like an aid. It doesn’t contribute directly to content. But it can help you get there, to that space.

See media uses the dramatic and sensational as a tool. it is supposed to get you there. But it’s not the subject. When it becomes the entire self-propelled point, then it’s the problem not a vehicle.

(For future reference: don’t worry, I will let you know when I’m listening to Tchaikovsky – 1812 Overture with cannons. But I think you’ll know anyway.)

And when the media’s Drama Karma kicks in, I think we’ll know it.

Anti-Semitic NYT and CNN editors

The Wrap

“Tom Wright-Piersanti, a senior editor at the New York Times, said Thursday that he is “deeply” sorry for some past tweets and that they have been deleted.

“I have deleted tweets from a decade ago that are offensive. I am deeply sorry,” he wrote.

Tweets cited by Breitbart no longer appear on Wright-Piersanti’s page and include a January 2010 message saying, “I was going to say ‘Crappy Jew Year,’ but one of my resolutions is to be less anti-Semitic. So… HAPPY Jew Year. You Jews.”

Another seemingly deleted tweet reported by Breitbart references the “Jew-police.”

 

“CNN Photo Editor Resigns After Old Anti-Semitic Tweets About ‘Jewish Pigs’ Resurface”

The Wrap | Lindsey Ellefson | July 26, 2019

Mohammed Elshamy’s Twitter account contained a number of derogatory statements about Jewish people posted in 2011

Stop The Instinctive Naivete

Joan Rivers used to say, “can we talk?” America, can we talk? I have about had it with our conservative or Republican brethren, while meaning well, putting on pretenses about what the left says. It really is sickening and naïve.

This is an instinctive reaction for some people. Just stop it! That is ignorant.

One of Hannity’s favorite talking points about the 2016 election is how media fell for the Russia hoax story. Can we dispense with that bullshit now? Mark Levin called Hannity on that one night. He told Sean no, MSM were in on it all along and were part of it. But they never just “fell for it.”

After his 2020 campaign kickoff, Trump did an interview with Hannity. Sure enough, Hannity reflexively used his talking point that media “fell for” that charade all the way. But immediately Trump disagreed and corrected him. He said MSM knew and were in on it, but they didn’t “fall for” anything. Why does our side do this so often?

AOC just made statements that, in fact, we have concentration camps on our border. A particularly nasty comment. So Fox talks about it and Laura says she is dumb or those comments aren’t right. She is shocked at how media are defending it. But the MSM and Democrats feel compelled. Let them defend it, or try.

Let’s get this straight, she said exactly what she meant to say. Don’t attribute it to some misstatement. And don’t expect her to apologize. It was entirely intentional. The reaction was predictable because she intended it. The comment was inflammatory by design. Being provocative is in their DNA as radicals. It is what they do. Who can attribute it to error? They get the desired benefits. Again, it is their M/O; it’s what they do.

That would be giving the media or AOC way too much benefit of the doubt. They are part of the radical strategy. Language is nasty because they mean it to be nasty. It is a form of sandbagging to misattribute their vile intent. It makes their sandbagging more effective.

The Great Divorce

This could be a long piece but it doesn’t need to be. Democrats and the left cannot attack Trump on his actions as president. So they attack him for his words.

They want to impeach him for his words and what he says. That would require separating Trump’s words from his deeds, which will take what I call the Great Divorce. The left looks petty playing this word police game. And what hypocrisy that is.

Fear mongering meets comedy in news

You know CNN has gone downhill. But do you want to know how far down they’ve gone? They hired someone to mock them. That’s right, in case they hadn’t realized it.

In desperation for viewers, they brought on Comedy Central comedian, Colin Quinn. He told Anderson Cooper in an interview that it was a political and cultural humor that took no sides. He said all he wanted from the program is for people to just laugh.

Okay, on the face. But let me understand this: all week long CNN tells us what dangerous times we are in, on the verge if not in Constitutional crisis, the likes of which we have never experienced before. Be very afraid for what calamity our country is now in because of Trump in the White House. From scholars to the street, fear is very real and justified.

Now they bring on a guy to make you laugh at it all. Yes, laugh at the polarization, the division, the incessant identity politics and the ridiculous nature or state of our political system. It’s over, he says, we’re done. But we are supposed to laugh ourselves into a frenzy over it. Right. The country is lost and we are on the cusp of civil war.

So tell CNN that all their hogwash, fear mongering is for naught because we are now going to laugh our asses off at it all. Yep, that’s just what I was thinking. Laugh your asses off at the catastrophic crisis that CNN makes of it all. But will liberals think it is funny?

I wonder if this is going to be a regular thing as they claim? It sure does set the tone for their “news” coverage though. On a side note, he is funny and makes some points but then drifts right into the anti-Trump rants. Though that is probably why they hired him. Ironic how it makes much of CNN’s apocalyptic scare tactics look so petty by comparison.

So now they are trying comic relief on their audience? Kids do not try that at home.

The right has been laughing a while. There comes a point beyond jokes. Is it funny?

But maybe it is a metaphor? CNN and Comedy Central have just switched places now.

Coming to a head of Deep State collusion

So this is what our partners in British press are up to?

No holds Barred: Trump and his troops push for imperial presidency

With his compliant attorney general, the man in the White House is taking aim at the constitutional balance of powers. — [I think they misspelled ‘competent’ AG.]

/….

Congressman Jared Huffman of California said: “It’s a smokescreen, obviously an attempt to change the subject like everything else he does. I almost don’t want to dignify it because it’s so preposterous that any time someone investigates Donald Trump or disagrees with Donald Trump they are being treasonous or they need to be locked up.

“This is a slippery slope to a banana republic if this is where we’re heading. And I think most Americans get that. You just don’t call for your political enemies to be investigated and jailed in the United States,” Huffman said.”

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/may/19/william-barr-donald-trump-robert-mueller-congress

Imperial what? It doesn’t seem too imperial to me. An Imperial Congress, maybe.

Yet that is exactly what Democrats and the left are doing, and have been doing since even before the election — having their political enemies investigated. Just that we were not to know the depths of this incestuous cabal. Odd to hear British press complaining after allies there were also involved. Pointing the finger back at Trump has gotten a bit old.

And if that were not enough crazy talk for you, consider Nancy Pelosi’s broad smear attack (wrap-up smear) on Trump, saying he “is engaged in a coverup.” She followed that projection by claiming Trump is crying out for his impeachment. If impeachment can swing by the seats of their pants, they even plan to blame Trump for their impeachment scheme.

So, right on cue they are outraged Trump pulled the trigger to declassify documents and have AG Barr, with investigators, look into the real charade and coverup that started the whole cabal. And guess what? It wasn’t Trump that did that!

Last but not least, a congresswoman also said that “we cannot do our job in congress unless we can hold the president accountable.” Accountable for what, their plot and coup?

Now refusing to do their own job in the House, they want to blame that on Trump too.
