Old Narratives Fade To Dark

Occasionally what happens in the world of political narratives is an old narrative gives up the ghost. That is what happened this week with at least two of them.

But narratives are popular and valued today in the press and media. They take on a life larger than their own. A collective of narratives can be valued even more. But those in prominent places don’t like them to go away easily. No, it takes a lot to boot a narrative, once firmly established, to the curb. Think of all the effort spent in creating them to begin with.

1) Suddenly Joe Biden abruptly shifts to call for a second intelligence look at the origin of COVID and, more  importantly, unpopular theories which recently “gained credibility”.(WaPo) That’s because major media has begun talking about a once taboo possibility of a lab leak in Wuhan China.

So Joey decides to redouble intelligence efforts on examining the cause scenarios. Order a 90-day review to report back the findings. Then decide.

2) The second is the old narrative of “Biden the moderate.” Anyone who still believes that one must have been sprinkled with magic dust. But it was the standard go to description. Joe has never been a moderate. So you have to ask which one is not true, Joe being a progressive(radical) or his near 50 years of Senate record? Actually, the latter record was the lie that he is some moderate deal-maker. That was all created en route to get where he is.

You think if he started off like Bernie he could have gotten here? He had to lie to get people to believe he was something he wasn’t in the first place. Create a fictional profile in order to run for president. It is much easier to believe that than believe he went full-blown progressive now, under pressure.

Now the fictional narrative of Biden crumbles to reveal he is and always was a radical progressive. He didn’t need nudging from Bernie or anyone. Could we think he would do all this stuff trying to create a great progressive “legacy” if he was not a progressive? But old narratives do not like to go away easily, and only if they must. This storybook about Joe simply outlived its usefulness. And anyone who thought or believed otherwise was not paying attention to Biden. (but then who would?)

There we have two vaulted narratives that fell flat on their faces recently And it is why media’s credibility is in the toilet. I only wish people would stop accepting these phony narratives before they become so big, then are weoponized. They might not be so dangerous then.

But for people who believed Joe was some roll-up-your-sleeves moderate, get help. Its over, Joey’s cover is blown to bits. There must have been lots of people who believed that in the election. And he never got the 80 million votes they say he did either. Maybe that narrative will finally crumble in the future, too? But they do hate to give up a good narrative, don’t they?

As to the evolving COVID cause cave-hanger:

Now even this bait and switch “second look-see” is only another narrative in the making. Custom made for twitching ears. A 90-day timetable would give China time to figure out and arrange gratuity to Biden Inc. He might as well send a telegraph request for money. “Dear, Beijing, thinking of you a lot lately.”

So create a narrative that we are seriously looking at the Wuhan lab cause. Have people think he is doing a great service, by committing yet another disservice to the country. Way to go, Joe. This doesn’t mean they admit the  truth about the lab leak cause, just that the original narrative is rendered dysfunctional.

The moral of that story is if you thought Joe sold out America before, then get ready for phase two. It is shaping up to be a doozey.  

But the old narratives never go away completely they just lose cred and fade.

New Party Euphoria

Apparently some disgruntled Republicans are floating an idea to start another Party. It is sketchy on names but nevertheless state media is pouring fuel on the fire.

So the Democrats have become a socialism sewer but all the attention is on Republicans as they sink the country into abyss.

Secondly, it comes out that former FBI deputy Andrew McCabe labeled the ball field shooting of Republicans as a “suicide by cop” incident, rather than an act of domestic terrorism. Wray cannot explain that after calling right-wing extremists terrorists.

Liz Cheney is out as a leader but taking to the air to expound about her virtues. Adam Kinzinger is also yapping it up. These people are clearly not happy with Republicans.  I wish they opposed Biden the way they fought against Trump for years. But they will not do that.

Yet when Republicans got targeted and shot like fish in a bowl, it gets officially labeled a suicide by cop incident. Not a biggie.

As to New Party yap, Lizzy says that is not her agenda. She is out to hijack the Republican Party. Nope, not team players.

Operation: Information Shutdown

What a difference from the last administration. After the press obsession with news then, Joe Biden suddenly has the luxury of a complete absence of coverage on his administration. Sure, press briefings occur, which only serve to further blot out anything which could be regarded as real news.

Obviously, the orders are out that real questions on issues are not welcome unless they have the certain White House-friendly perspective necessary.

H/T: A fellow friend of this blog had a piece weeks ago with thorough disgust at what is depicted on news aggregate sites. So I took a look at one he mentioned. Indeed, it is stunning the conclusions you can draw just from a simple gleaning.

The big story in 2021 – with our vast social media, tech, and media—is the black out of news and information, creating a giant information black hole. Even if a story of import arises, it gets little to no attention. That is considered satisfactory for the mainstream press. Only news gets coverage that they want reported. Nothing else. Who decides?

They have willing media helpers to make sure nothing gets the attention it deserves unless it is granted permission. What a way to run a country? What a way to run a free press.

However, as he noted in his piece, there are still stories running on anything to do with Trump. But another notable change is that any kind of celeb news, and you know how serial and crazy that can be, seems to have replaced any real news of significance. Anything but real news. Joy Behar, Jennifer Lopez, and Lebron James are flaunted as news jocks.

It is as if the clock was turned back to the seventies and all the press were furloughed, or sent on mission not to cover the news – anything but.

The syndicate Left wants no information flow on what is the most radical administration in modern times acting in secrecy by the most nontransparent standards. Keep the public in the dark on everything. Meanwhile, radical thugs and rioters chant in the streets, “this is what democracy looks like.”

The Orlwellian newspeak of what they do tell us is reminiscent of Russia or China. If they do not want you to know, then you can bet there is a good reason.

What a glaring contrast from the last administration. In your face arrogance on steroids.

A Word On Limbaugh

Rush Limbaugh has been gone about a week and the press seems obsessed by calling him hate-filled or divisive. He’ll live on rent-free in their minds.

First off, no one has probably done more for the conservative movement than Rush Limbaugh. But there are some consequences for that kind of success. He was targeted by the Left’s smear machine for decades. It’s what happens when you are effective.

The steady drumbeat from the media is calling him hate radio and divisive, polarizing. Only by the Left’s terminology and standards.

So telling the truth about the Left, their agenda and tactics is hate? Exposing what the Left is doing is divisive? Talking about issues and policy is divisive? The DNC has no patience for anyone truth-telling on the airwaves.

Rush could have been the original cancel culture target. They wanted nothing more than to remove him from the air, shut him up and destroy him. They couldn’t. He thrived on their efforts and it fed into his talk operation. Certainly the Left will be on the lookout for anyone rivaling his reach and popularity. Yes, he was a phenomenon.

But one has to understand what came before Rush: The Fairness Doctrine. That was the policy that forced airwaves to give “equal time” to issues and politics. As usual, the Left found a way to use that to shut down conservative opinion or ideas. The media would say they could not give equal time to the other side, so effectively it cancelled conservative speech. In effect, you were limited by your opposition’s inability to present another side.

The effect of that policy worked the same as their silencing agenda. They use social media now to do the silencing. There is no fairness. Equality is the last thing the Left wants. They want and demand a stacked deck: institutionally, culturally, and in the airwaves.

With Rush, they could have none of that. He wasn’t going to give them a minute of peace. He was probably enemy number one for that reason. The Left despises competition. They resent being challenged by the truth. And they certainly hated any idea about the numbers of Rush’a audience.

But yet in such an environment Rush Limbaugh flourished like wild flowers.

Just an aside, I remember back about ’92 a friend from Kansas City gave me Limbaugh’s book. He said this is the guy to watch and listen to. I started reading the book and realized this guy had the same ideas I had. For the first time the issues he would talk about made sense in a sea of political chaos. But the very best part was to realize there were a lot of people out there, almost a limitless amount, who agreed and felt the same way. And we were not going away. That is the way I remember it anyhow.

So now there are over 20 million Limbaugh’s who are out there. They are not alone or isolated. He started the ball rolling. But the Left saw the same thing with Goldwater and then Reagan before. They at least knew what it meant for them. If imitation is a form of flattery, the Left tried to duplicate it but couldn’t make it work on Air America.

I’ll miss Rush, but never ever forget him.

Comfortable Normalcy

Those who desire the comfort of normalcy have fooled themselves, and likely sold their hearts to slavery.

I think some Muckety-muck somewhere said that. Instead of worrying about the COVID virus, maybe we should start worrying about what Democrats have mutated into.

Mitt Romney put a tweet out days ago. See if you spot the devious flaw in it?

“Despite the differences Americans may have on matters of policy, we share the common goal of ensuring that America continues to be a beacon of hope and freedom for all.” — 10:01 AM · Jan 20, 2021

What pure gibberish. Beacon of hope — who cares about that? Freedom? The Democrats and Left don’t care about all that. It sounds nice but it is not true by any measure.

And there is nothing you can do to make these people care about our country. They only want to beat our heads over it as a useful tool. Other than as a weapon, it has no merit that America is an exceptional country. They compromised that away long ago.

Obama tried to drive the stake in the heart of that. Can we beat it idea into their heads? No, they have to willingly believe that. But it is obvious in everything they do.

They have lost any appreciation for America’s originalism and exceptionalism. Now they only want to be like everyone else. They prefer normalcy over exceptional.

So who in the hell is Romney kidding, and whom is he talking to?

In the first few days, O’Biden attacked and canceled out the 1776 Project. Why take issue with that? I think we know. Why stand against a pipeline now creating thousands of jobs and building the economy? I think we know. Why attach our progress in controlling the border by promising to open the borders? I think we know that too.

Why remove restrictions on foreign interference and equipment in our energy grid?

The National Pulse reported:

”President Biden has revoked a Trump-era executive order that sought to keep foreign countries and companies out of America’s bulk power systems – principally entities associated with the Chinese Communist Party – as part of his “Executive Order on Protecting Public Health and the Environment and Restoring Science to Tackle the Climate Crisis.”

“The executive order, which executes key tenets of President Biden’s climate change agenda, was released on the former Veep’s first day in office.” Read

Why would Biden do that?

Meanwhile, back at the Fed on December 7, they voted 6-0 to join forces with a scheming green Global cabal.

“Rather Than Focus on Helping the American Economy Prosper, The FED Joins Central Banks in ‘Greening’ the Financial Industry” — Gateway Pundit

“Now the FED is off on another insane journey which arguably has nothing to do with its mandate to the American people. The Hill reported on Dec. 15th:”

But you say, if these people had any appreciation for what America is, they have an awful strange way of showing it. Biden only has appreciation for what he can extort out of it,

As this continues, media is busy commending the brand new O’Biden administration for its return to normalcy. Dan Rather, after being exhumed from his dungeon as a defrocked journalist, says he is enjoying all the quiet comforts of it all.

“As I settle into a Saturday evening I breathe deeply, reflecting on how nice it feels to know that my sanity won’t be tied to the destructive whims of Mr. Twitchy Twitter Thumb.” — 8:59 PM · Jan 23, 2021

Dan, don’t let that security blanket bite you.

What is normal about cancelling restrictions on China and foreign interference with out power grid? Normalcy of open borders? Normalcy of opposing the 1776 Project? Take comfort in that normalcy. The normalcy of selling out America.

Oh, now they also attempt to impeach a president who is out of office.

But if you dare turn on the TV, you will be flooded with the verbiage about normalcy. Isn’t it great to be back in normal? So grab your Orwell and throw another log on the fire.

Ain’t Normalcy grand? I almost can’t wait to see where this normal train takes us next.

Eulogizing King

Now a word on King. Not MLK but Larry King. He died, since also having COVID, at 87. What a shame and what a career in talk and TV. Radio in the 50s and 1960’s. No, not that I should have anything to say about Larry King.

Personally, I was not a big Larry King fan. I never really cared for him as a host. That’s a whole other matter. But he had you or everyone because he got those big interviews. So anyone making news or on big events of the day, Larry had the players on. They needed him and vice versa. More like you just could not avoid the guy.

In that way, he influenced the conversation but also facilitated it. The good, the bad, the ugly, the pomp and ill advised. He got them all. The one rule was anyone in the news went to Larry King, usually first. And his interviews were worth watching. At least he asked the questions people wanted to know. He was a standard.

I don’t know how one gets to the point where the minute someone popped up as important or influential that they had to do Larry King as a consequence? Maybe I don’t quite understand it. But he had the draw. So if you were interested in anything, you had to watch (tolerate) the Larry King archive of interviews.

I don’t know of any other person with that kind of draw and influence in and on the news. And I cannot see it replicated anytime soon. He seemed like the Johnny Carson of the news. He was a first stop in anyone riding the circuit.

That said, like him or not, he was a media player. Anyway that is a little ode to Larry King. The unavoidable. RIP.

Fruits And Nuts Debut On CNN

Today I am going to delve into a very dark place with spirits of hatred and bitterness so pronounced that it could curl your toenails. .

But first, this place broadcasts openly calling itself the purveyor of facts and the go to source for news — at least in airport terminals and waiting rooms across America.

That place, otherwise known by the letters CNN, is not a place I recommend but if you go there, you may be stained for life. It could even give one nightmares. Take this particular episode of Anderson Cooper 360, guest hosted by John Berman.

The panelists included David Gergen, Douglas Brinkley. And Gergen with Caroline Cohen authored a piece for CNN on the Trump/Biden transition as a discussion primer.

Gergen Tweets::

It has become clear that Trump & Co are deliberately trying to sabotage the Biden presidency. Some 50 million Americans appear to believe Biden is illegitimate. We have never seen this before & it is quite dangerous.”

Sabotage, Really? Never? I’m shocked!

Excerpts:

“This is a big deal in our national life. As the Reuters reporters wrote, the widespread rejection of the election results among Republicans “reflects a new and dangerous dynamic in American politics.”

“Doing the math, that means on the day Biden takes the oath of office, over 50 million Americans will believe he is an illegitimate president. Collectively, they could be a powerful political force for years to come. Though opposing parties have questioned the legitimacy of elections in the past, never before have such beliefs been grounded in a calculated campaign of misinformation.”

”Never before has the opposition undermined the legitimacy of a new president before he has even taken office to anything like this degree or in this fashion.” [Factcheck that one!– BBC]

“It’s important to remember that this hasn’t happened by accident. It is increasingly clear that for months, Trump and his campaign surrogates have engaged in a systematic effort to kneecap Biden and his presidency. In the lead-up to the election, Trump repeatedly questioned the legitimacy of mail-in ballots and suggested he wouldn’t accept the results of the election if he lost. In short, this has been a deliberate campaign of sabotage, undertaken with scant regard for how much damage it may inflict upon our democracy.”

“[Trump] expects to gain political influence from the millions of people who believe in him more fervently than they do in our democratic traditions.”

On A/C 360, Brinkley agreed with Gergen claiming it is bizzaro. Then he questioned the sanity of Trump, predicting Biden may not succeed in unifying the country and that Trump probably doesn’t go to the swearing in.

The piece suggests opposition to Biden is a threat, worrying how it could be stopped. One conclusion seems to be betting on Trump investigations to continue harassing him.

So their wishful strategy has become clear if it wasn’t before election — try to marginalize Trump and no doubt his supporters. Their fear is Trump could inhibit Biden’s agenda.

Well, guess what, to Gergens and the Brinkleys, we are not going away. And the tens of millions of people, 73 by their count, are not going to cover our heads or go away.

Maybe you will grow some self-awareness to see the pendulum swings both ways. All you have done to Trump for his entire term, and now you would prefer some semblance of calm, unity, or kumbaya for Biden and will feel cheated if you don’t get it? Come on, man!

Well, welcome to reality and it’s a bitch.

You honestly expect that people would forget the way Trump was treated by the media and Left, who now want to prop up Biden? And forget the Swamp that tried to take him down. You’re kidding. CNN even hired the lawless, discredited former officials.

So Number 2 of the coup is getting no pass from us.

But it does sound like some people are getting a little worried about reality.

Institutional Chaos Usurps Elections

If you are not living under a rock or on a secluded island somewhere, then you have no doubt heard that Donald Trump has attacked and weakened our most valuable institutions in this country. Since we all care so deeply about them.

And no doubt you have heard it on a loop. It gets no response or push back in part because it sounds so awful. That is crazy talk but look no further than Democrats for destruction.

The people who have attacked and weakened our institutions are the Left and their droid Democrats. But you will never hear that reported anywhere. It is just not a story.

However, it did take Donald Trump to come along to frame and prove their narrative so wrong. It was Republicans who were first tagged with that blame banner, as if we were anti-institution or even anti-democracy. But Democrats took it to the stratosphere when it came to Trump and his reelection. Basically he is the blame for everything.

As usual, it was the left who has attacked our institutions and rule of law itself. They’ve branded border control the problem; they’ve attacked and called for defunding the police. They want to reimagine everything they don’t like – or everything not already politicized enough for their taste. Even energy, the economy or climate are targets.

And they have done a good job at that. They’ve weakened almost everything America values including education and our history, and even culture itself.. While sheer destruction of them is not their goal, they want institutional subservience to their political ideology.

Now no one can blame Trump for all that, or even conservatives. The left has done this with such passion; it was clearly their agenda for years.

But in 2020, they went the ultimate step in their evolutional demise of institutions. The one last thing that remained was our electoral process. Yes, they had attacked it for four years after Trump was elected. They were not only attacking us, the voters, but also undermining, politicizing and weaponizing the system itself. The cover they used is that they were worried about the integrity of the process, ie our trust in it.

Then they went full scorched earth by making all the changes and reforms they had schemed up before, but now had the chance to shove into place. True to radicalism, they didn’t care how they went about it as long as they got it all into place.

These plans themselves would do more to tear down the fabric around our elections than anything else. And as we now know, once you break the bond between the people and our electoral system, you have weakened democracy. The effect goes much further than that because they shredded people’s credibility in that system.

Like I said, they spent four years weakening the foundations. Now they have abolished the sacred trust between us and our elections. Once again, you cannot blame that on Trump which is exactly what they have in mind.

They are going to say it was Trump who kept attacking them by scaring people about “rigged” or “fixed elections.” No, he was only describing what they were doing, almost preemptively. Did he know the lengths they would go to in blowing up the system? I don’t know, but he certainly warned us loud and clear. And the left did not like him warning us. They didn’t want us to know or believe it.

The thing is our electoral system was just the last piece that they hadn’t quite altered enough for their political palate. They were not going to stop until they got the guaranteed results, read outcome, they wanted. A pandemic and Trump’s reelection offered them the opportunity they were waiting for. Trump was only an excuse for it, not the cause of it. This was their doing all the way.

Elections were merely the last, most important piece to complete their agenda. They had already shattered our credibility in things like the Justice Department, the FbI or IRS targeting conservatives. We found the Left had taken over everything in our government under the rubric of Deep State. And Americans lost confidence in all the institutions over years anyway; this was only the final straw. Media and press was already shot through.

But until now, we had at least expected our election system was basically in tact, even with all their shenanigans attacking it the last four years. Now they removed the façade that we could still trust our elections to operate above the proverbial Leftists fray.

Trump warned of the pending doom in the 2020 elections all through his campaign. Media mocked him saying he was attacking it. That clever game of blame they always play.

Now that we are handed the results of their non-stop plots for months, and see it for what they did, just like their other schemes for five years, we can validate in spades all the damage they have done. However, it does fit the pattern perfectly.

Empty Suit Wins Presidency?

So let me state the Democrats’ best defense of Joe Biden, in the event he won the election. This will be long and hard to grasp. It requires deep intellectual acuity.

Here it is: “Joe Biden is a good man.” That’s it. That stimulates every neuron in the brain.

Combine that with the way he ran a campaign from his basement that raised record-breaking amounts of money. However, he has stayed in a Holiday Inn a few times.

I have been listening to Biden supporters across the spectrum, from identity to identity, and that is their explanation for why they support Joe Biden. It’s the good man excuse.

That alone will guarantee him to be an excellent president. “He has the right character for the job.” Thus he will be a good president. That’s it. (debate is over)

It is now the consensus of the national press — as if any other possibility ever existed.

At the time I finished writing, the media has declared Biden the winner. They skipped right past declaring states. Biden IS the winner! Still counting but skip to the chase.

And right on cue, as if planned, crowds formed in the streets dancing and celebrating. Now they are waving American Flags instead of burning them. But more on that later.

Do you get the irony of media taking a stand to declare Biden the winner?
“Live, from his basement in Delaware… it’s not Saturday Night Live, but Biden Live.

Fox’s Arizona Call

The call on election night to give Arizona to Biden was from Fox. It was a hasty call that didn’t make sense. But then it reminded me of something I saw a week ago. The article meant one thing then but possibly even more now.

A top exec at Fox News used to work with Biden and other Dems. He could be responsible for some change of attitudes at Fox. But then along came election night and suddenly, preemptively it seemed, Fox called Arizona for Biden when hundreds of thousands of votes were left to count. No real explanation was given. All MSM went right along with the play.

A move which, as time went by, no one seemed to understand. Take a look at this article from National File. June 29, 2020 (excerpt)

“Danny O’Brien, the executive vice president and head of government relations at Fox News’ parent company, is a former Joe Biden chief of staff who is reportedly actively helping the Biden campaign connect to Washington lobbyists.

Danny O’Brien started out with gigs at the Democratic National Committee, director of ethnic outreach for the Clinton White House, and on the Al Gore campaign. He served as Joe Biden’s chief of staff in the Senate from 2003 to 2006, then worked as political director for Biden’s 2008 presidential campaign.

After working for Democrat Sen. Bob Menendez and General Electric, he inexplicably became the executive vice president and head of government relations at Fox Corp in 2018. Fox Corp is the Murdoch entity that currently owns Fox News. Thus, the effective chief lobbyist for Fox News is a hardcore Biden guy. And he’s also not-so-discreetly helping the Biden campaign this election cycle.” (See more)

Satire On Self

This is a day, not unlike others, where I sought to sit down and write some inane nonsense in the hopes that some misguided soul would come along to read it, hopefully calling it imparted intelligence. A place where fiction influences reality and vice versa.

After a while one can seem to run out of zany ideas that you just have to settle for reality. Then, in a twist like a Rod Sterling plot, you realize the truth has been much more crazy than any ideas you racked your brain to dream up. Truth is the bomb. That is an uh-ha moment like no other. I have had exactly those reoccurring thoughts almost every day now for months. What does it portend for our future, for my future in particular?

For posterity’s sake, we can only hope there are some lessons to be learned from this sorted process. But ironically this reality, crazy at it is, seems to be void of lessons learned from past history or prior revelations. This presents a paradox.

So are the enterprising scriptwriters for Hollywood and film also seeing the same writing on the wall that leaves this writer feeling like a dinosaur? Here is a cultural exercise to try for a test: if a thought bubble were hovering over this day, what would it say? Dare you think further, and what image would be under it?

 

Here is just one example from a day in which reality appears to go feral. The truth came out putting a name and face to an anonymously written NYT column in 2018, which stood media and politicos at attention. The piece: “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration.” Miles Taylor turned out to be its writer, who was a staffer at Homeland Security. He left there and now has joined the CNN network of aggrieved and disgruntled government employees. He should fit right in.

Of course the kicker in the anonymity story was wondering who this insider was, or how close he really was to the president? The caustic cloud of speculation loomed over the administration for months. What did he know about daily decision-making that gave him such rich perspective on the administration? Or maybe not. And just like that, reality turned out to be crazier than the fiction it tries to emulate. But now it is too late because we have taken the bait and ran with it, as far and long as it could take us.

Still, it caused no less than 30 administration officials to deny authorship, something that apparently did not bother the astute conscience of the anonymous writer. Even Barack Obama suggested he was acting undemocratic. From a president who suffered no breaches in his administration, even while conducting a coup to undermine an incoming president.

The sheer beauty was that this person could have been any one of possibly top-tier members of the administration. And it capitalized on that beauty. Perks of anonymity. The media then parlayed that experience into a wider story across government. Protecting such anonymity became a lifeline to integrity in government, so the plot went.

Now, a man who was relatively unknown or insignificant used a cloak of anonymity to propel himself into a position of knowledge and trust, publicly. Though never knowing who he was, if he even existed – was it a he or she – left many people to question what it really said, if it was all true, about our current president and his administration?

Another irony is that he was a nobody before but only now more of a somebody. But the revealed somebody turns out to be less relevant than at least the NYT had implied.

Of course the real abject lesson for us here is to be careful what and how you trust what comes from the mainstream media organs these days. You never know where the truth starts or ends, or comes from. Yet there are times when they just reveal who they are. It did lay bare the notion that some are/were working inside the administration, covertly in their minds anyway, to either save the administration or sabotage it from being successful. However they justified it. Who says all anonymity is working for the good?

In this case, anonymity seemed to be the forbidden fruit from which all this supposed truth and honesty would flow. It turned out to be only another deception. An intermittent pause in the search for identity and perception.

As The News Turns

This post is based on what is now typical morning, pre-election news coverage, If you wanted music accompaniment, you might go with Eric Clapton and Tina Turner — “Tearing Us Apart.”

On MSDNC’s Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski has decided a while back that Trump is not leaving. He just isn’t. She thinks they should deal more with that subject. Joe Scarborough, on the other hand, cautions her not to worry that the ‘autocracy’ in the courts etcetera has everything under control. He thinks there is enough reason to think courts and judges have all the solutions at hand. (this guy was a conservative and Republican, ever?)

Mika seems to think it will take a special tactical force and military swat team, with 4-star generals and military equipment assistance, to physically extract Trump from the White House in January. Can you imagine the dreams she is having? (being married to Joe to ice the cake) She has explored this subject for months though few others will play along, long enough to assuage her concerns. Who knew Mika had such a great mind for conspiracies?

Now on CNN – and this is all by 6:30 AM – they have stayed mostly with the COVID-central theme. Numbers they claim could be well into 100’s of thousands by December. Even 800+ thousand deaths is a high limit. Every one of which, you know, is directly traceable back to Trump. He was very busy as the grim reaper.

Then there is the other problem, just as big, the vaccine scandal. The administration has asked states to make a plan for distributing a vaccine by November. And that sent them hyper-speculating on motives that maybe Trump is trying to preempt normal procedures and just shoot people up with bleach in November. Kidding aside, Trump’s real motive for these plans must be the election.

Wait, I thought they like plans? They always demand we have plans. But never mind that they seem to be undermining the legitimacy of the vaccine. Like we really need that. But then this probably has something to do with Putin, too. Everything does.

Meanwhile, CNN will keep you daily updated on the worst news possible on the pandemic. They figure It wouldn’t quite be a pandemic without politicizing and weaponizing it. Whatever does happen, they just shift the goalposts to compensate and attack Trump accordingly. See, if states do follow the guidelines, then the guidelines were corrupted by Trump. If they don’t, it is Trump’s fault for undermining the legitimacy of them.

Then there is Rip Van Biden, who awakens occasionally to say he would have done it right and most of those lives would have been saved, which media largely seems to be buying. But do not ask what Joe would have done differently from Trump that would have changed all the dynamics?. If they could think of anything they would have said it already.

News media has their narrative they can adjust by plugging in little things along the way. That keeps it interesting like a soap opera. You almost have to tune in daily to find out what new thing they’ve come up with. Scriptwriters must be working 24/7.

I’d say the creative plot award of the year should be going to Morning Joe and MSDNC. It also assures Mika of a job. She’s the crazy one to keep an eye on. The Pentagon is probably waiting to see what she comes up with.

And they wonder why Trump calls it Fake News?

How Bad Is It For Dems? Backfire

This is the only DNC convention where it can happen remotely, and on another split screen you can watch the Demo-base celebrating in the streets of Portland or Chicago with fireworks, bricks and Molotov cocktails. But only on Fox News.

Not since 1968 has there been a convention this exciting.

Where Democrats can chip into Biden/Harris one minute and donate bail money for rioting thugs the next. What’s not to like about that? I think they covered all their bases.

If I hear their line once more that “it didn’t have to be this way,” I’m going to puke.

But how bad is it for Democrats these days? It’s so bad that even Demo-media comrades don’t want to show the rioting and looting palooza on TV. They’ve been blacking out BLM activities. (It would probably only incite more photogenic rioters.)

18 U.S. Code Section 2102. – Definitions (b)
As used in this chapter, the term “to incite a riot”, or “to organize, promote, encourage, participate in, or carry on a riot”, includes, but is not limited to, urging or instigating other persons to riot, but shall not be deemed to mean the mere oral or written (1) advocacy of ideas or (2) expression of belief, not involving advocacy of any act or acts of violence or assertion of the rightness of, or the right to commit, any such act or acts.

So they’re self-censoring the riots and looting coverage. Why? Because at least they know how much it disgusts people and would reveal Democrats’ M/O. Nearly 3 months and the PR has only gotten worse not better. It’s so bad they refuse to show it.

I can tell you I’m not in line at Wal-Mart hearing lots of people say “if only I could be in Portland or Seattle rioting now.” It ain’t glamorous even to Democrats.

Yet these are the same commie thugs and criminals Democrat pols are defending as peaceful protestors. Show me ten Democrat protestors and I’ll show you a riot in the making. Give ‘em an hour and a half. And their networking capabilities are great.

But the Demo-media are complaining about Trump using the words nasty, mean or angry. Have you ever seen people more angry or hate-filled than this bunch of Democrat activists? Even back in the 60’s, The Resistance would have been a garage music band.

Weather Underground was more shadowy. These cats have the support of elected pols. Now sedition is the bell-bottoms of the 70’s. Rioting is the new sit-in. Blocking an interstate is the new street festival – peace out!. Anti-peace is the new activism. Injustice for all.

But it doesn’t look good to American people. Cheering them on is not attractive either.

So how do you piss off a Democrat? Viva La Flag! It works every time.

The Bottom Of The Empty Barrel

There is a point you will never here on lamestream media. It’s actually profound but I am not going to give it away in a few words. Please read the whole context rationale for it. Pity a thousand words were necessary but could easily have been three.

We know the George Floyd case and I don’t need to repeat all the details. Yes, again, horrible and shouldn’t have happened. I’m outraged.

And that supposedly set the latest sequence of events in motion. You know the arguments, police brutality, structural and systemic racism. They’ve assembled endless marches. It would be interesting to know who is doing all the organizing and funding. But never mind that. We have a bigger issue at hand.

Now we are told that practically everything we do is racist, or race-based. They say we have to deal with that; so they get people apologizing for something they didn’t even do to try to appease race hustlers. However, I hate to tell the kneeling do-gooders, it isn’t going to help you or them. That will not solve anything in the end, if they don’t want it solved.

It is just placating them.

Here is example one: if someone who is white has a child today, no matter how you raise him/her, in 18 years or so they will be considered privileged and blamed for being part of the systemic white racism prevalent in this country from its inception.

How’s that for a charge? And nothing you can do will change what he/she is: a white, privileged part of the long problem. I mean how do you explain or prove you are not? That’s the point, it doesn’t matter. And you can be branded as racist even if you do nothing racist. Okay, put that aside now. Though it’s probably an inevitability on this course.

Now we look at reforms they claim are needed. There is naturally police reforms since that seems to be their biggest priority. Blame cops and change all these procedures. You know those, I am not going to list them here. They are not crucial to the point.

The Left and the protestors already told us the problem is systemic racism, so pervasive that it is oozing out of every institution or economic sector in this country – everywhere. And a police reform is going to fix all that? No. But then they will tell you all the other changes we need to make to correct it, starting with us getting on our knees to apologize.

I get a little upset how all the onus and phony questions are always aimed at us. It’s a gotcha game that, even if you participate, you are designed to lose every time. If you play it their way by their rules, that is. They don’t tell you that even if you make all these changes and reforms that guess what? It will still be called systemic racism and you will still be a witting or unwitting participant in it. Because that is the only possible outcome.

Maybe that is a little bit hard and they may give you credit for all these changes while you made them. But it will not be enough in the end because the game doesn’t stop there. Nice try but we will have more work to do. (not that we aren’t now making strides) That’s why kids born today or tomorrow will be blamed in 20 years for being accomplices to all past and present problems and grievances. Yes, there will be another generation of leftists around to make sure that generation are held responsible for it, too. It is perpetual.

Leftists’ love for country is inherently contingent on them getting what they want.

Notice all along it is they who run the show and narrative on all this? No coincidence. You cannot have anything to say because there is nothing you can say. The whole thing continues on and never goes away. I don’t have to explain that. And they will be sure to keep it all alive. But the why is important though.

Example number 2: suppose I buy a house that needs a lot of repairs. The question is why would I go to all the trouble of making extensive plans for it, if I already decided I am gong to level it and build something else in its place? I wouldn’t, it would seem pointless if that were my real plan and I already decided.

What I am saying is that these people, predominately the leftists and Democrats with the go-along dupes, have already decided what they want. These reforms or changes aren’t it. They really want a brand new system, new country and Constitution. The old one is not in the cards, in fact, it isn’t in the game at all.

So we are only appeasing them on the highway to utopia, in their minds, while privately debating over a new foundation layout. But they will never be happy because they want a whole new system. Actually, they want this one to be so flawed they have to change it. That is at the heart of most problems. They tell us.

The other thing they want, in the meantime, is to use the perceived flaws and problems for political gain to increase power. Election fodder. Crises are “opportunities,” they all tell us. Pelosi boasted that she only sees all these crises as opportunities. So that is what all this is about in the end – political power.

Now that we established those basics, there is just one thing left. No wonder they aren’t happy and will not be satisfied? Since they are always posing gotcha questions to us, I have a very important one to ask the Democrat Left. It is the holy grail of questions.

What will it take for them to be proud of America? Would there be any reforms possible to make them proud of America? Oh sure, they are capable of some short-term pride when they are in the White House or control everything. Even that is temporal and condition based. The Left only have pride in an agenda.

Actually the only thing they have pride in are politics. That political pride remains. Quite literally it puts politics above the country. They aren’t capable of being proud of the country – systemic racism or not. They have no attachment, emotional or otherwise, to it. They dropped that long ago. Their agenda is a new country, a new society. The whole idea is not to have any pride in this one.

So there is the bottom line question to it all: Will they ever be proud of America…. and what would that take, if even possible? No reforms can spawn that.

This is the question for the Democrats, socialist left and all the rest. I’m sticking to it.

As much as they’ll always pledge to get to the bottom of it, we must never and can never get to the bottom of an empty barrel.

You’ve probably heard that pride usually comes before the fall. But in this case, it is a lack of pride that spells the cause for the country’s fall.

Journalism under attack by Coronavirus

Or is it? …The lamestream manstream media is rolling out a brand new narrative Monday that “journalism is under attack by Coronavirus,” by MSNBC’s own Andrew Lack.

Headline: “Journalism is under attack from coronavirus and the White House. But we’re winning.”

“President Trump came into office railing against many of the foundation of our democratic institutions, including a free press.”

In his supposed defense of journalism, he says Trump has not landed a glove on serious, honest journalism (well, then they trashed their own credibility ratings) and claiming that “the heart of journalism has never been stronger.” It gets worse.

[journalists are] “not looking to win any popularity contests – just doing what Woodward and Bernstein inspired my generation and the generations that followed to always do: seek the best obtainable version of the truth.”

Despite the poor writing skill, can you imagine he has the chutzpah to put out that revision? First, no, it is all about popularity contests. He admitted as much in the subtitle claiming “we are winning.” How about best (or worst) version of the narrative?

Secondly, he could have picked better examples but he went for all-stars Woodward and Bernstein, who managed to fame themselves with no shame from the beginning. And if they are your idols, Andy, you have been great students of their goals. In fact, it is now all about who can transfer the latest words into ammunition to weaponize in this political — not journalistic – warfare. Or who can get the most twitter attention or go viral over their political attack. So yeah, they’ve made Woodward and Bernstein(a regular celebrity guest hack on CNN) look like pikers. Jim Acosta turned WH briefings into a resistance sideshow to wax his own ego. MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika are on a planet of their own.

Lack goes on to say:

“Reporters have been on this story from the start, tracking the spread of the Coronavirus without fear or favor, faithfully doing their jobs even – and especially – in this perilous time. Every day, with every story, they try to find what is most relevant to the public and relentlessly work to uncover the essence of what it means.”

What all is wrong with that? Everything. He paints them as selfless heroes of some sort. They missed this story and others from the beginning because they were enveloped in propagating the impeachment conspiracy hoax. Just the way they intentionally ignored and smeared the biggest story of our time, about an elaborate coup and coverup 3 years in the making. Oh fearless without favor? Give me a break.

Then, when they did start reporting on it, after mocking the idea it was something to worry about, they collectively went after Trump as the only story while people were dying.
Find what is most relevant to the people? I imagine a pandemic and what it is would be more relevant to people than arguing about Trump closing off travel from China. But then the press mouthpiece NYT told people whatever it is blame it all on the Trump Virus.

Faithfully? You have got to be kidding. About the only thing they remain faithful to is ideology and the resistance because they disagreed with the results of the 2016 election.

Actually, the only thing on par with these presscapades is Democrats’ addiction to play partisan political politics with a pandemic, by holding people and businesses hostage to their own radical agenda. No holds barred… politics trumps even a pandemic.

By the way, you try your damndest(yes, as an institution) not to serve people but control what they think and see. You intentionally ignored the biggest government abuse scandal in US history in the coup. And you replaced it with a political narrative of woven misinformation to deflect from and cover it up. You care what Joe public wants to know?

“At this dark hour, Americans are scared. They’re hungry for accurate information and the unvarnished truth. Now, and in all the days to come, journalists will be there.” — [read article here]

They are fairly angry with what the institution of press has become. No wonder the trust and credibility deficit in media. “Unvarnashed truth” was sacrificed on the altar of politics.

In the end, I don’t know what case he was making that journalism was under attack by Coronavirus, except to once again paint press as victims. Meanwhile, the administration has weathered a coup and now fights a pandemic; so yeah, I’m pretty sure journalism should be able to cover a nasty pandemic. They covered up a coup with no conscience.

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.
