NYT Strike Creates Unequaled Opportunities

I’m about to break an exclusive. The New York Times is on strike and has apparently been scrambling behind the scenes to tweak their hiring policy, as the need for workers could be huge if the strike continues. No word on how long that could be. Enter plan B.

So as a news hound myself, I got a hold of a draft copy of a screening questionnaire they are planning on using — should the need occur to hire mass replacements.

Filling out the questionnaire appropriately will get you on the fast track for consideration. This is meant to sort of weed out the undesirables, if they try to breach NYT defenses. Being multiple choice the options are limited. Here is the satirical draft.

Tweety Leaks

So Elon Musk taps Matt Taibbi to do an analysis on Twitter’s pre-election behavior in 2020, where they banned a legitimate news story, among its other party activities. They acted in unison with all the MSM, DNC and Deep State apparatus assisting.

Now Democrat cult members are whining about the nasty revelations. “Boo, hiss, Elon!”

Dear distraught Democrats:
Let me know if we ever get an honest review or autopsy from MSM, or its operatives, over any of their huge “press” failures. I’ll be waiting!

Oh, but the minute Elon Musk probes the legacy media’s integrity and credibility deficit, you are all suddenly enraged and moving to China ….where free speech is valued.

They owe America a collective apology. And it will be arriving on the first day of never.

But it is weird how we haven’t witnessed a mass exodus of Democrats leaving the country, yet. I didn’t know the airlines were so backed up, or tickets were that hard to get.

Tweety Gives Normies The Bird

Just in story right from Babylon Bee, your best source for fake news.

James Lindsay Sneaks Back On Twitter Disguised As Pedophile Schoolteacher

Internet · Aug 6, 2022 · BabylonBee.com

 

“NEW YORK, NY — This week, cultural critic James Lindsay was suspended from Twitter for persistently criticizing teachers who sexualize small children. Though Twitter announced a permanent ban, Lindsay was able to sneak back on the platform by simply declaring himself an actual teacher who sexualizes small children.

“How do you do, fellow elementary sex-educators??” said Lindsay via his new Twitter persona, Jameson Lindergarten. “Gosh, I sure do love teaching children about my sexuality and helping them find their true pronouns!!”

The new bio from “Mr. Lindergarten” has already earned accolades from the pedophile community, with many applauding his remarkable courage. Initial comments included affirming Tweets from profiles with diverse handles like “@Gr00m_Th3_Kidz,” “@Twerk_4_Teach3r,” and “Don’t_Tell_Mom.”

Twitter is in the process of awarding Lindergarten verification and giving him 300,000 bot followers to help boost his following.

According to Twitter, the concerted effort to remove any criticism of child molesters is already beginning to pay dividends. “We are proud to report that we are already seeing a much more positive, affirming stance towards pedophilia on Twitter,” said spokesman Jim Rapier. “Still, we have to work to do. There are other bigots out there in the mold of James Lindsay who want to make child molesters feel bad. We will not rest until everyone feels safe to sexually indoctrinate young children.”

At publishing time, the Biden administration had announced “Mr. Lindergarten” would receive the “National Teacher of the Year” award, to be presented by Rachel Lavine.”

Saving Sanity In The Biden Era?

The Democrats are using Orwell’s 1984 as a blueprint instead of a satire. Now they have instituted a Ministry of Truth. Of course they wouldn’t call it that, they would rather endow it with the name Misinformation Disinformation Governance Board.

Governing free speech is apparently so popular.

So they are rolling out their ministry of truth to combat, supposedly, all kinds of misinformation — or what they deem as misinformation. (anything they don’t like or agree with.) Ah, what an incestuous web they weave. What sparked this ? You might say it has been in the works a while.

Obama had truth squads and his brownshirt army who were out to keep the record straight. You had 911 Truthers to begin with, who were also part of the left.

But they now incorporated it formally into the administration. What more prominent place to put it than within Homeland Security? Since they keep repeating our greatest threat to the homeland is right-wing extremists, it gives away how they plan to use it.

You might expect such a bureau in some authoritarian regime but here it is in the US. “They’ll never get away with it” becomes another empty mantra along with all their other revisions to our government. They do it and therefore it is. Could there be a Constitutional challenge that tells them “no?” But what are the odds it will be knocked down?

Remember all the czars Obama appointed? Who would stop him? We now will have a department that codifies the network the Left has built among the Silicon Valley social media, to silence any political opposition.

And speaking of social media, what better timing for it than as Truth Social opened to the public? Could they have had that platform in mind? Then Elon Musk buys Twitter threatening their monopoly on censoring information. The Left is screaming over that like when Hillary lost the election.

Adding more insult to the left — as every Tweet from Elon now does — Musk tweeted about the political paradigm alignment. Well, the left jumped to interpret that as a defining of the country, which the Left jealously guards as their inherent right to do. Only they can define the country. So that offended them both ways.

But the image he used was simple and made a point. Here it is.

And that is all it took…. off to the races.

You might say Elon Musk also has some unorthodox ideas for Twitter, sure to set off fireworks — both literally and figuratively. But that’s a subject for another time. This is purely about the political paradigm Musk referenced.

For now, Elon swung at the fences with this image the Left was quick to try to pigeonhole. Many people agreed with his description of where he was on the spectrum of politics. (that was the purpose) The Left hyperventilated about that along with his description in the image that painted the Left as running further and further off the far left scale.

So that prompted someone like Matthew Dowd to respond with a description of where the country is. Here is that assault on reality.

Matthew Dowd
@matthewjdowd

“The truth is, yes the Dems have become more progressive as the country has, but the GOP has moved towards autocracy and further away from “equality and justice for all”. I would ask everyone to acknowledge this factual reality as they discuss the political landscape.”

8:47 AM · Apr 29, 2022

Get that, blame the country that it is going with progressives.

But we know the country got behind Trump and has trended to the conservative side of the spectrum. The country certainly is not behind the issues or ideas they have.

He wishes everyone would acknowledge that fact … er big lie? Autocracy right?

Only so much time, how sinister they really are. The pendulum has actually swung against the left. Under any poll they seem to be loosing support. But they skip down the yellow brick road acting like everyone is with them. People are running the other way.

Schools, the economy, inflation, socialism, green new deal, open borders, crime, anti-police. The people are not supporting their positions. They are running from them.

What started this defining the politics of the country syndrome? A simple Tweet from Elon Musk on his personal place on the spectrum. Though he seems to have a pretty good grip on what has happened in the country. How long till the Ministry of Truth takes on the subject to have the final “progressive” word?

Shuck And Jive Tucker

I have held off for some time saying anything negative about Tucker. He does a great job on a lot of things. Yes, he is popular though that has less to do with it.

But I finally decided it was time. I watched how he dishes out criticism to everyone else. A lesson I learned over years has been a pretty good marker of ‘who is who’ is to  take note of what a critic does not criticize — not lust what he/she attacks.

And Tucker has certainly been a critic, politically and on media. So when he refrains from criticizing something, it is also important. Omission.

In this case, he has always been anti-war. I accept that…. or like who is for war? That postures many of his stands. I get it. But then in the face of a tyrant like Putin he has little to say personally about him. Is he somehow beyond criticism? What gives? Well, I don’t know his motives but I don’t like it.

I have always been an anti-Russia critic and always will. Particularly anti-Putin as well. But there are times when I gave a little credit for what he was doing as a leader in his country, verses how a leader acted in our country. But those are only his political positions. What is more important is what he does and how he uses/abuses power.

Now Putin is demonstrating for the world the evil he is capable of and willingly engaged in. No I don’t ignore that. And I won’t rationalize it or make comparisons to our government leaders. I don’t think that gets us anywhere. I can’t revert to US policy instead.

However, I don’t see the same boundaries on Tucker. If people are convicted about being anti-war, that is fine. But it does not make war go away. What Putin has done here is totally all of his doing. There is no way to blame it in any way on the US. (this is more convenient for some people)

But it sounds great in echo chambers, “look at me, I’m faulting our government or leaders for causing it.” It was caused by one man, who I prefer to think of as evil personified.

Bunnies and Ice Cream Propaganda Tour

The irony of Jen Psaki skewering a WH reporter about trying to propose “bunny rabbits and ice cream” legislation is too rich.

It must be lost on Hot Psaki that they’ve been doing the ice cream-Joe theme since the campaign. Remember his chocolate chocolate chip? Then on Christmas week they floated out the press-friendly video of Biden’s with a new WH puppy, Commander, on the beach.

So Jen, the only thing missing is the bunny rabbits. And by golly, as soon as the White House can locate some in the supply chain, before Easter, I’m sure we will get them too. Her snarky sarcasm has no limits.

Everybody loves bunny rabbits but hates Joe Biden. Let’s go Brandon!

All that of course is only to cover that Joe Biden’s poll numbers are in the pits at a stealthy 33% approval. (Who are they?) But yes, a congratulations is in order for how-low-can-you-go Joe.

Who would’ve thought a part-time president could get so far? He’s got the worst polls in history for a part-timer. Putting in 3 days a week is catching up with him fast. What will their clever White House think of next …….
a weekend at Brandon’s?

Russia Hoax’s Fatal Encounter With Reality

Welcome back to reality, people, or those who are hearing about it due to its vast censorship from major media. But in the event you do, it is like reality has finally made a comeback —  successful or not. — from planet Treason.

But that hopeful end goal may require some divine assistance.

Anyway, here is Australia’s Sky News solo coverage of it, which itself may yet be deleted by self-anointed cyber-police seeking to defeat reality.

Well, sit back and enjoy the homage while it lasts, courtesy of foreign coverage.

The damning “story of the century,” which in reality was only a fictional tale.

Or as we are fond of saying in the US:

Let’s Go Brandon!

Wacky Media Theorizing

Time for some wacky media theory talk. 25 years ago Fox kicked off a news network that broke the mold of the news media business model. Against all the odds it worked.

Okay, it was an achievement and people liked it. The popularity even caused a hate from the left, which was weird because you would think liberals would like more news instead of less. It seemed to fire up their hate machine on all cylinders. Leftists couldn’t really hate on legacy media because they shared the same political views.

Now hate for Fox is standard fair.

But whenever you get something new, even if it is an offshoot of something else, sooner or later it too gets dated.

Then, after Fox News proved there could be viable alternatives, it led to others like OAN and Newsmax. Now there are a bunch of them. Oh, you could say they aren’t really mainstream yet. But Fox is because it now leads in ratings. Fox proved you could also succeed in being an alternative network – or beat them at their own game.

Now that that is done, what is new on the horizon? I already mentioned the other alternate news networks. They are gaining fast. And meanwhile less and less people really believe what mainstream legacy media is telling us. It’s a caricature.

What is the future? Well we have to look at what happened and say that eventually someone will come along to replace and further what Fox has done, it’s only natural. What would it be is yet unknown. But we do know people tire of things. After 25 years, they aren’t new anymore. But people will flock to try something new if given the chance.

We’ve seen this pattern in social media, too. Who remembers MySpace? It was all the rage when Obama first ran. Young people probably don’t even know about it, but it was young people then who drove the platform. They know Facebook though. Interesting how the negativity for Facebook has turned into a hatefest. Do you think they survive it?

Mark Zuckerberg has now given us the answer. Change the name. But the fascinating thing under the hood of public opinion is that the Facebook hate is across the spectrum now. It doesn’t matter if they are on the far left or right, or in the middle, everyone agrees on a disdain for Facebook. They certainly don’t trust it either.

So Zuckerberg seems to have a challenge, especially after trying to monopolize so many other social media platforms. His own mother ship brand is in the toilet. No one is more responsible for it than Mark Zuckerberg. Out with the old, in with the new. That time always comes, eventually. At some point, interest fades and/or something else replaces it. Facebook now just wants to remain relevant.

This presents sort of a pattern for the rest of media.

Legacy media is dug in though. There was a time when CNN was the new thing in the 90’s. It rode a popular wave for a while but the wheels came off and it crashed as a leading source. It is no more than an organ for the Democrat machine, credibility is shot. It had its time in the day though. They haven’t decided on changes there yet. But it cannot stand, as people don’t trust them.

No one trusts Facebook either but they didn’t have to. It was only a platform for people to use. Their paradigm has issues now and people refuse to participate in it. They aren’t spending time on it.

I’m saying the same thing will probably, inevitably, happen in the news business too. But it will have to be a different model than we see to be well received. We’re all jaded now; we’ve seen how it works, the good and the bad. We’ve seen where it leads. So it also becomes harder to build a new model with any integrity while there is so much venomous dislike for the old model.

One natural resource we still have in America is creativity. When you have something that people don’t like, there is a hunger for something different. Someone somewhere will find out what that is. It might take several attempts but something comes in the end.

Mark Zuckerberg had to know that day would come when it would be irrelevant, didn’t he? He should have. And he should have planned accordingly. All he managed to do is gobble up anything out there which might be a threat to his monopolistic existence. But Facebook was the business model for all else he hoarded.

That business model now has serious issues. It’s been undermined by people’s lack of trust in it. You can’t keep feeding people poison after they discovered it is poison. That demands deception. Heaping on more new poison is not the answer.

Next up, the jury is still deliberating on Twitter. Jack Dorsey may be despised, for a lot of reasons, but the hate has not spread to both ends of the spectrum yet. So far it is mostly from the right. The left still sees it as politically useful – and they let you know it. In fact, they swarm it like killer bees. It’s a vehicle for cancel culture. It’s useful to attack their political opponents. It’s a preferred platform for leftist hatred.

But that too has its shelf life. Whatever the next thing is, liberals will flock to it like wild boars, they always do. That also makes it harder to start up anything new when the liberals come in scorched earth to destroy anything in their way. That is another pattern we’ve seen over and over again over years. They also don’t develop new; they just want to destroy the old. They wait for others to start it and pounce.

Who knows what the next thing will be or what the future will be? But we do know the sequence of events. The left wants to control it, whatever it is. They want to control us as well as our ability to organize or participate. We can count on those factors.

Meanwhile, Trump announced a collaborative media project to create a new platform. Will it succeed? It will have the name brand and recognition to kick it off – something others only dream of. The left has helped by banning Trump on other media platforms. It created a need for them to go elsewhere. The left never realized it was us who created the attraction for social media platforms. Without that it was only homogenized liberal waste water – an elitist echo chamber, another organ of the Democrat machine.

Whatever is new lies ahead, But what is old will not be forgotten, nor are the lessons learned.

Zuckerberg is already gleaning for what is new that he can use to rehabilitate “Facebook”. He blew it on the new name right out of the gate, Meta. (logo is even worse) No one on the spectrum likes it. Most think it is sounds stupid. He managed to unify hatred of himself, something people would have thought hard to do.

I know, maybe he can use Joey to gain interest in his platform? Maybe he can use has-beens like Obama to help sell his new image? He can say, “hey, we are re-imagining Facebook.” That ought to work. Notice a pattern?

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.

“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?
