NYT hires a new script writer

A brand new rosy-eyed columnist came on the NYT staff in September. She did an introduction interview with the paper’s radical staff and appears to be a perfect fit for them. Bowe Begdahl was not available.

Speaking about the future prospects of a Trump presidency, she wasted no time:

“Michelle Goldberg: Thank you so much! I couldn’t be more thrilled. I feel like Cinderella — which is not to compare the fantastic people at Slate, where I worked until now, to a wicked stepfamily. My first column is on Tuesday.”

Michelle: “Yeah, I think we’re learning that the Constitution may, in fact, be a suicide pact. It’s a source of constant astonishment to me that the country has handed over the means to destroy civilization on this planet to an unhinged lunatic who lost the popular vote and was installed with the aid of a hostile foreign power. It’s such an epic institutional failure that it calls everything we thought we knew about this country’s stability into question.”

That’s how you ace a job introduction. Leave it all on the editor’s desk.
Hit all the high points.

The Slime of record — paper most quoted by John McCain.

Thursday Trifecta of Politics

Politics hit the trifecta Thursday. The left thought they were in paradise. But the joke or lesson is really on them — with any analytical thought.

First the details: Chief of Staff General Kelly was compelled to come out to counter the “empty barrel” attack from Congresswoman Wilson(Fla); President Bush’s speech in NYC; and Obama found his angry voice, again, campaigning for progressives in NJ and VA.

That on the heels of McCain delivering his salty attack on Trump, in receiving the Liberty Medal honor. (McCain had to use his honorable moment to attack others)

Kelly’s remarks from the White House were weighted and directed perfectly. Just the fact that he would have to come out to address this issue that media blew into a firestorm is a sign of our times. He complained of the lack of sacred tradition and civility.

Well, home run. But it won’t stop the left in a spiral dive into the gutter. Obama would never be treated this way, under any circumstances. Nor will it stop RINOS.

So Kelley’s remarks were very sincere compared to her diatribe.
But he alluded to the moral decay.

Wilson had even phoned in to “The View” to scream her hatred for Trump, calling the Niger incident Trump’s Benghazi. If she didn’t politicize it before by listening in on a White House call, she went all out on a live TV rant — leaving Megyn McCain almost speechless. She said she told the widow to give her the phone so she could “curse him out.”

One person left the audience with the sincerity of moral high ground. General Kelly.

Bush speech

The health of the democratic spirit itself is at issue. And the renewal of that spirit is the urgent task at hand.

And we know that when we lose sight of our ideals, it is not democracy that has failed. It is the failure of those charged with preserving and protecting democracy.

Freedom is not merely a political menu option, or a foreign policy fad; it should be the defining commitment of our country, and the hope of the world.

They are further complicated by a trend in western countries away from global engagement and democratic confidence. Parts of Europe have developed an identity crisis. We have seen insolvency, economic stagnation, youth unemployment, anger about immigration, resurgent ethno-nationalism, and deep questions about the meaning and durability of the European Union.

America is not immune from these trends. In recent decades, public confidence in our institutions has declined. Our governing class has often been paralyzed in the face of obvious and pressing needs. The American dream of upward mobility seems out of reach for some who feel left behind in a changing economy. Discontent deepened and sharpened partisan conflicts. Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication.

We have seen our discourse degraded by casual cruelty. At times, it can seem like the forces pulling us apart are stronger than the forces binding us together. Argument turns too easily into animosity. Disagreement escalates into dehumanization. Too often, we judge other groups by their worst examples while judging ourselves by our best intentions – forgetting the image of God we should see in each other.

We’ve seen nationalism distorted into nativism – forgotten the dynamism that immigration has always brought to America.

We have seen the return of isolationist sentiments – forgetting that American security is directly threatened by the chaos and despair of distant places,….

Clearly directed at Trump, and not just him but the people who elected him. I love how these guys all do drive-bys on the electorate. — especially when they don’t agree with the results of the election.

Demonizing isolation, for a guy who ran against nation building. And yes, loudly he bashes the nationalism, as if it is corrupted somehow. But it was this very nationalism that helped get him elected, not once but twice. (even though many of us questioned his record) Oh nationalism was great when it voted for him. But it’s bad when we saw what direction he was taking us — that not so subtle handoff to globalism, the New World order.

Of course, again a huge swipe at conspiracies. Say nothing about the current conspiracy theories against Trump. No, we know the ‘conspiracies’ he meant were on the right.

Finally, oop there it is: “Our governing class”. Where the hell does that come from? The global elitism people are sickened of, which causes his bitterness at our nationalism.

Obama speech

“What we can’t have is the same old politics of division that we have seen so many times before that dates back centuries,” the former president said.

He implied that some people in power are embracing outdated mindsets when crafting policy.

“Some of the politics we see now, we thought we put that to bed,” Obama said. “That’s folks looking 50 years back. It’s the 21st century, not the 19th century.”

The master of illusion and straw men comes out to remind us everything wrong with him and the past 8 years. He’s like a sideshow magician at the fair doing cheap card tricks to lure your attention, just to be disappointed.

That’s supposed to be a fastball attack on Trump but Obama perfected the art of division. That’s what he ran on. I still remember the drop down lists for all his groupie identities. Then there was the class warfare, anti-Christian diatribes, anti-American crap, attacks on the rich, pitting one group against the other. It’s his specialty. Now he rails against the division he built.Ask Dems, they’ll tell you.

Beyond reasonable sympathy

I’m going to link to this article even though it is pretty insulting to the American public, but then it is what the left does. Of course they are never responsible for the moral decay or lack of civility in society and culture today.

The person he is trying to channel, John McCain, is another source of irritation.

A op-ed by John Kirby appeared at CNN praising McCain’s speech. It has issues of its own.

“John Kirby: John McCain’s speech accepting the Liberty Medal was about leadership, more than it was a rebuke of Trumpism”

In what has been largely read as a denunciation of President Trump’s world view — the senator derided “half-baked, spurious nationalism” — McCain also reminded us who we are as a people and, perhaps more importantly, who we were.

We’re not just a nation divided. We’ve become a nation afraid. …equal parts paranoid and paralyzing.

There are real threats and challenges out there, to be sure. But shame on us for letting them rip us apart this way.

[turn lecture on] You can read McCain’s speech as a slap at Trump. And maybe it is. You could also read it as the musings of an old man near the end of a long, storied, heroic life — a man unburdened by the vagaries of electoral politics. And maybe it is that as well.

Although, to be fair, McCain has never been one to shy away from taking an independent stand.

I choose to believe he is appealing to who we know, deep down, we really are as Americans — even if we don’t want to admit it: Pioneers. Explorers. Innovators. Entrepreneurs.

Appealing to? No, what it was is a treatise aimed directly at Trump, his views or philosophy, though McCain is too timid to use his name. Trump. But that is also why it was praised the way Kirby and other MSM hacks did.

That makes his speech a full-throated example of the political hatchetry it attempts to rail against. Hypocrisy. No wonder the Left would embrace it the way they did. And note the parts they highlight — those explicit angry attacks at Trump. Loving it.

Of course I will take it as the Slap it was meant to be ( I should be used to these slaps by now, since circa 2000) because what good is a shot, after all, if it is totally lost or missed? And it fits true to McCain’s past vindictive at those he disagrees with. You can’t have it both ways: praise it as the hit it is and call it benign on the other hand.

I share the concerns of many about the President’s dangerous ignorance of the world, his diminishing — if not vacant — curiosity and his general disdain for any thoughtful, balanced approach to governance.

“If we hear the words of leaders like McCain as a reminder of who we are as a nation, rather than just as a rebuke of the divisions Trump has brought”….”we’ll come out of all this stronger and better than we were before.”

So Kirby tells us how we are supposed to read his speech, in some innocuous way, to see the divisions he calls out — which will make us stronger. Stronger to ignore someone directly attacking your motives that belong in a dustbin of history. Pay no attention to that. Meanwhile, the press and media will point out how incisively he attacked you and the president.

What schizophrenic alternate reality. Kirby you take the cake. So it’s okay for McCain to make a broadsided attack, but we are at fault for seeing it as one. Did anyone ever try that with Obama….and get away with it? Never.

Plugging the Leaks

 

Mattis Warns DoD Against Leaks in New Memo

Tara Copp, Defense News October 6, 2017 Defense News

WASHINGTON – Defense Secretary Jim Mattis issued a new warning Thursday to all military and Defense Department civilian personnel against information leaks, and directed personnel to report suspected leaks, guidance that government transparency advocates said would have a chilling effect on the public’s right to know.

In an internal memo dated Oct. 3 and obtained by the Military Times, Mattis reminded DoD personnel that “it is a violation of our oath to divulge, in any fashion, non-public DoD information, classified or unclassified, to anyone without the required security clearance as well as a specific need to know in the performance of their duties.”

Mattis also reinforced the obligation to report leaks.

https://www.defensenews.com/news/pentagon-congress/2017/10/05/mattis-warns-dod-against-leaks-in-new-memo/

But in the left’s global world, they see this as scary and interpret it as a transparency problem, having a “chilling effect,” simply because Mattis tries to crack down on leaks. To leftists in media, it wouldn’t matter that our men or objectives could be undermined. Maybe he also ought to worry about the huge cloud storing military information under an Amazon connected entity? At some point. But the leak crackdown is a problem?

Defining dissent in the kneeling protest

I’m trying to get a grip on this Anthem, flag protest attitude, so I’ll give it a whirl.

The “protesters” are evidently the type of people with an attitude that look around at the current conditions or circumstances in the country to decide if they approve of America, based on satisfaction. Then of course they can’t bring their resentful hearts to respecting the flag or Anthem. The whole America concept is tainted by their disagreements.

It goes hand in hand with identity politics that everything — including your judgement — is based on your own identity. And that is why identity politics are so divisive. By contrast, only if you are satisfied with everything can you support the Anthem or flag. That’s the synopsis of their view. Who could be happy about everything they see? It becomes a false flag; and so dissatisfaction becomes a convenient straw man for American dissent.

If everything is based on your current condition or circumstances, as you see and interpret them, then it is subjective to each person. The old saying is “you can’t please all the people all the time.” – John Lydgate

“You can satisfy some of the people all the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot satisfy all of the people all the time” ― John Lydgate

Dissent has been turned into an art form.
Enter the Colin Kaepernick kool-aid brigade. 🙃

Clap-Trap Clapper

Clapper’s mouth just keeps moving, now as an analyst on CNN.

CNN

(CNN) Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said Friday night that the intelligence community’s assessment of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential race “cast doubt” on the legitimacy of President Donald Trump’s victory.

“Our intelligence community assessment did, I think, serve to cast doubt on the legitimacy of his victory in the election,” Clapper said on CNN’s “Erin Burnett Out Front.”

Media disapproval

How about that news media. What happened to media approval numbers? As much as they are critiquing Trump’s approval numbers, look at theirs.

But one message I took the liberty of interpreting was, those Democrats are even dumber than we thought.

To Gallup | August 25, 2017

First, the number,

Story Highlights

  • 14% of Republicans believe news media get the facts straight
  • 62% of Democrats agree
  • College-educated are most likely to find news media credible

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Just over a third of Americans (37%) in 2017 say news organizations generally get the facts straight, unchanged from the last time Gallup asked this question in 2003. But despite the apparent stability in U.S. adults’ perceptions of news media accuracy, major partisan shifts in beliefs on this topic have emerged over the past 14 years. Republicans’ trust in the media’s accuracy has fallen considerably, while Democrats’

The most recent findings come from two Gallup polls, conducted in March and July of this year and consisting of interviews with 1,810 adult Americans.

More http://news.gallup.com/poll/216320/republicans-democrats-views-media-accuracy-diverge.aspx

Compare that to 1998 when ” over half of both Republicans (52%) and Democrats (53%) believed news organizations generally got the facts straight.” And so college-educated are more likely to trust the news media.  Another whopper surprise. Democrats and college-educated, what’s that say for media cred? Pardon me, I smell swamp gas oozing.

Will pollsters also show me where we are supposed to believe media, after their reports on last election, while our approval for congress is in the basement? Nah, probably not.

After the polls and media coverage last year, it’s surprising anyone believes either. Right, Dems want to believe media, and the polls. That must be it. Just look at everything else they want to believe in. How are these polls stable from 2003 to now?

Doesn’t add up, except that there is even more overwhelming evidence of liberal media bias now, and how far they’ll go. They even admit taking a pass on criticizing Obama. All the more reasons for Dems to want to believe them. Democrats wanted to believe in everything Obama said too. So I think this is more about faith.

Saint Elizabeth Warren, I presume!

When Does the Media Love Christianity?

By: BillOReilly.com Staff | September 8, 2017

You probably know the answer to the above question. The media praises Christianity only when the Christian in question is a left-wing politician.

What brings this up is a long and nauseating piece in the Boston Globe which essentially beatified Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.

“Elizabeth Warren’s Christian faith is deep and authentic,” gushed reporter Victoria McGrane, “and it informs her work as a senator.” How does McGrane or anyone else know whether anyone’s faith is “authentic?”

We were also assured that Senator Warren is never without her Bible, “a well-worn King James version she has had since the fourth grade.”

Can you imagine the Boston Globe or its former owner, the New York Times, writing that kind of puffery about a Republican? Mike Huckabee, for example, is an ordained Southern Baptist minister, but most of the swells at the Globe surely despise the man.

This drill is all very familiar and predictable: Religion as practiced by Jesse Jackson, Hillary Clinton, Al Sharpton, and their fellow travelers on the left is uplifting and honorable. Religion as practiced by Ted Cruz, Robert Jeffress, and Sarah Palin is worthy of nothing but ridicule. …/

Of course O’Reilly is spot on. I would just add that if she is devout, then it is in practicing at Bernie Sanders’ Tabernacle of Revolution. Why would they choose her sect over — or in place of — Bernie’s in 2020? They’ve already seen the fruits of his. Or maybe Bernie can be high priest and Elizabeth can be the high priestess on a ticket?

Media’s promotion of her faux Christian credentials would “require the willing suspension of disbelief” by the congregants. It’s serving the church of politics. That’s what they do.

Remember how media built up Obama’s Christian cred or how they promoted Hillary’s devout, deeply-rooted Christian beliefs? Planned Parenthood didn’t buy it. That’s what they do — hoping to divide Christians in preparation for slaughter at the ballot box.

However, immediately after election media and the candidates go back to sneering and mocking Christians and Christianity. But that is the very thing we were warned about.

Though in both Obama’s and Hillary’s case, their mentors were theologians of Marx. A dead giveaway. Yet the media got away with selling it as ‘pure as the driven wool.’

Obama studied under Rev Wright’s Liberation (Marxist) Theology, etc. Hillary’s youth minister sent her down the path of socialist activism. Warren brandishes a King James version while claiming to be a nasty, nasty woman of the occupy movement. Money changers anyone? All swear to a blood pact on the altar of abortion. Christian leaders?

So why not? These days progressives, or whatever they want to call themselves, operate more like a religious cult. It is no wonder the Left would apply many of their policies as, and with, the piety of a religious sect now.

Trump calls out Media, Weak-Kneed Rupublicans

Looking for the Truth in a forest of lies? Trump’s got you. Any time the media is called out they go into a nuclear meltdown. Elites don’t like that.

And apparently the media left don’t like Trump calling out weak-kneed Republicans either. Media loves weak Republicans – useful idiots. Like McCain and Flake, but there’s also Corker, Graham, Susan Collins, or even McConnell and Ryan.

NYT tries to handicap what I call the McConnell problem.

“I think he’s[Trump] going to blow up, self-implode,” Mr. Hoffman [former finance chair of RNC] said of Mr. Trump. “I wouldn’t be surprised if McConnell pulls back his support of Trump and tries to go it alone.”

McConnell going it alone? The guy who lost the repeal bill, and who promised to make Obama a one-term president. Yeah, ‘go it alone, Mitch.’ Good luck on that strategy.

So when Trump goes to a rally in Phoenix to call out media and Republican failures on dealing with Obamacare, all their collective heads explode. From media press rooms to incompetent RINOS and swamp animals. He refuses to use proper names, ha ha.

Right on cue media runs to the rescue, to help out all the above.

CNN and Don Lemon began calling him a liar right after, then launched the entire show into condemnation of Trump’s sanity. To complete the triggered panel of CNN regulars, who all challenged Trump’s sanity, they brought out discredited contributor, James Clapper. Let the fireworks begin. Take that.

How about James Clapper on CNN right after Trump’s rally in Arizona. He questions Trump’s Fitness to be in the office and adds:

“How much longer does the country have to, to borrow a phrase, “endure this nightmare?”” — [Trump as a Freddy Krueger nightmare of DC Swampland]

“He should have quit while he was ahead after last night,” Clapper referring to Trump’s announcement on US strategy in Afghanistan. “Again, I think the real Trump came through.” — [from Obama’s Dir of National Inelligence]

Then spewing out the Nuclear Codes fear mantra, Clapper said:

“In a fit of pique he decides to do something about Kim Jong Un, there’s actually very little to stop him,” Clapper said. “The whole system is built to ensure rapid response if necessary. So there’s very little in the way of controls over exercising a nuclear option, which is pretty damn scary.”

Clapper also said he is not sure what the definition of crisis is?

Trump really broke media’s triggered hearts by giving a shout out to Jeffrey Lord, fired for mocking Media Matters’ Nazi projection from the left. The guy who they still demand apologize but refuses to. A ““Sieg heil” tweet at the president of Media Matters,” is bad enough, but then refusing to publicly apologize for it is a capital offense to the Left.

Foxing the White House

(no, not ‘out–foxing‘) | 8/18/2017

What the left at large has done to Fox they are now trying to do to the White House, and the West Wing in particular, with the same fervor. Just the way Leftists claimed several top scalps already at Fox and more on the list, they are running the same play against the Trump White House.

Steve Bannon is gone from the White House — a mark the left has targeted all along. That only encourages Leftists rather than quells their demands, as it always does.

Immediately after Bamnon’s exit, they moved on to demanding scalps of Sebastian Gorka and Stephen Miller. Well, there are others but they are the next priorities. This is how the left operates, we’ve seen it enough times. Adding to the list of firings.

That will start a daily narrative, “how can they remain?” The clock is now ticking. Of course what the left really wants is to cut off any and all support from Trump. They want Trump himself. But they’ll settle for some top advisors to start with, one at a time.

Let’s see if they get any Republicans to echo their call. The Marxist left is getting skilled at this. I expect the same results. Even many Republicans agreed with O’Reilly and other firings. Now toward the administration where Republican voices matter, I expect them to cave. Mitt Romney was one of the first to jump right on the Charlottesville statements. You know Mitt, as an example, can go along with an anti-statue agenda. Spineless. Basically Mitt will go along with anything the left wants or demands.

This will also show which side Trump is on. I imagine he will give the Left a few scalps here and there, maybe to appease them, maybe because it is convenient, maybe for other senior officials. (Jared, Ivanka, McMaster, Kelly, Cohen) But the left is never satisfied.

So Trump will be Foxed. Whether he goes along or not is the question? But I think I know which way the Republicans in Congress will go though. (what do they ever get for it?) Do they split the party? It all comes down, at some point, to the Swamp scoreboard.

It always seems inevitable, how the people come along to support an organization so far and then, at crunch time, it turns away from the people who helped build its popularity. That is a lot like Fox: we came, we saw, we conquered, and then comes a pivot point, like the Murdoch sons throwing in a monkey wrench.

Yet the point is this agenda of the Left won’t stop. It will continue until it finally meets a wall it cannot penetrate, whether it is on Marxist groups, politics in Congress, or on White House staffing arrangements. No one asks why the left should get to choose who fills these positions — or who works at Fox? Arrogance is thy name of the Left.

Then there is the overreach problem of the Left.
Will ‘Foxing the White House’ work and succeed?

Washington, Media Cabal of Chaos

They are in a tizzy. Let’s look at the media. They say there is a false equivalency here and that there is/can be no moral equivalency with White Supremacists and Nazis.

First, Trump was not making a direct moral equivalency. But he suggested violence on both sides. Now then, the left’s great equivalency argument.

If they hate any moral equivalence, then why is the Left drawing a moral equivalence of KKK, Nazis, racists with Trump and his entire base? Why can they freely apply an equivalence by comparing and associating Trump with racists or white supremacists?

Now the Left (et al), including antifa, will apply these same protest tactics to anything tied to Trump they can — as if they are racist terrorists. There is a rally planned next week in Arizona. My bet is the Left is staging a major protest for that. They want to apply the same public hatred and resentment against supremacists at the moment, , onto Trump. Get it? Yeah, I smell what the radical left is cooking.

The media has called on any high level Trump administration officials to quit in a show of separation with Trump over his latest statements on Charlottesville. So they want to see mass resignations in the administration. If they can’t directly oust Trump at the moment, they want to shame Trump’s advisers and team into abandoning him. It is now a real part of their anti-Trump strategy. It is disturbing how this is pushed by mainstream media and CNN . This is not a few low-level rogue leftists.

As Trump shut down the manufacturing and business councils, this was one more shot at Trump. It all happens when Trump is on vacation. The left has been ramping up pressure against Trump for months. They want to turn public opinion against Trump when he is on vacation, and undermine support for his agenda. It really is how they think.

I’m calling this a back-door coup. Trump goes out the front door on vacation, and the left tries to storm the back door in a coup d’etat. That is by driving distance between administration officials and Trump. No, it is not going to work like that. But getting any resignation would be useful against Trump. They hoped for a mass show of opposition to Trump. That would set the table for Congress when they return.

Screw America and the people’s agenda, all that matters is the Left’s agenda.

All to show ‘no confidence in Trump,’ of course. Imagine if they did anything like that to Obama? The left wants to drive public opinion/sentiment down so that he cannot carry out anything. Dysfunction is the Left’s best friend. On a regular basis you can turn on news to hear them question if there is any public confidence at all for Trump? I know, but this is what they are doing. Then they pose the old fitness for office question to bolster the argument for the 25th Amendment.

Their latest useful item is Bob Corker’s criticism in questioning Trump’s competence, and stability, for office. Corker said Trump has not demonstrated that he understands the character of the nation. Get that? There is another trophy for the left to use in its war against Trump, along with criticism from McCain, Rubio, Kasich and now McConnell. The usual suspects. What can the left do with that? Just add it to their Russia boondoggle.

The American people are being screwed as usual, by the same people who have been doing it for years, but now on a different level. It’s on, a coup in motion against Trump.

Liberals’ Narrative of Rage

I could use a 1,000 words on the state of liberaldom and liberal media but it almost defies description in many ways. Yet there is no doubt about what they are doing. That liberaldom, and its apologists, are an institutional danger.

When media has mainstreamed propaganda to this level by well-known people, with so-called journalists, we have entered a new state. That it is yet celebrated is another symptom.

Ana Navarro of CNN said Trump “is unfit to be human.” Talk about dehumanizing. The vice-mayor of Charlottesville only calls him 45 because Trump hasn’t earned the respect or title of president. David Gergen, former presidential adviser, said Trump cannot “deal with racism in the country until he deals with the racism in his own heart.”

Just a few more for amusement. A consensus at CNN was Trump is now the ‘Supremacist In Chief.’ Michael Moore declares any white person who voted for him is a racist.

Welcome to ‘No-Reality TV’ – media.

Leftists claim another scalp

Real signs of how the left thinks and feels about speech, and racism.

Steve Bannon Encourages Jeffrey Lord to ‘Keep Fighting’ on ‘No Apologies Tour’ After CNN Purge

Hours after CNN fired pro-Trump commentator Jeffrey Lord for mocking Nazis and fascists with a “Sieg Heil” tweet, White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon reportedly called Lord to encourage him to “keep fighting” on what Lord said would be his “no apologies tour.”

As Breitbart News reported, “CNN—the network that allowed anchor Brooke Baldwin to falsely smear Breitbart News as the “most prominent platform” for the ‘Nazi salute’ and enabled New York Times columnist Charles Blow just a few weeks ago to falsely defame Breitbart News as the home of ‘Neo-Nazism’”—purged Lord for his clearly sarcastic tweet “directed at a Media Matters activist who is trying remove Sean Hannity from the airwaves and has called for Lord’s firing in the past.”

Even when someone mocks the Nazis or Supremacists while also mocking the left, which one wins? You got it, absolutely no tolerance for mockery or jokes. All mockery of the left and their stands is just, well, intolerable — like the Third Reich.

When the left uses Hitler analogies or calls someone Nazis, that is endorsed.
Mock the Left’s SS troops at Media Matters, you get smeared.

So they want any pro-Trump person banished from the air. Keep the airwaves clean — more like dirty. There are no limits to what you can say about the right, Trump, or his supporter/voters. But criticism for the ‘opposition’ of the left needs to be strictly regulated on what one can say. Any means to purge it is acceptable.

When were Obama critics coddled, shielded and protected?

There is hardly anyone less racist or boggoted than Lord. But that is not the impression they want to convey. (smear) Yet CNN is one of the most biased in media.

On the Charleston rally all the Nazi comparisons came out, while they called the “counter protestors” defenders of racial justice. See how that works? Counter protestors is Antifa, commie anarchos et al. But now lets refer to all those as racial justice warriors.

14 Minutes from Pacific Chaos

The report is that missiles would take 14 minutes to go from North Korea to Guam. Well, hello, but how long has that 14-minute potential been possible? I don’t know.

Is the real problem the 14-minutes from chaos or that it is possible at all? I know that is provocative, but those are the quandaries — it is possible and why?

What we can know is that, according to everything N. Korea officials have said, their nuclear program is non-negotiable and not on the table. And that their nuclear status is written into their constitution, leaving little to negotiate. Some of that sounds familiar.

However, the responses I hear from media are astounding. At this point, I don’t know which is more inflammatory, media statements or Kim Jong Un’s? Both damaging.

So it is really disingenuous when you hear how media reacts to N. Korea threats.

The Left has made the philosophical choice that they are willing to live with a nuclear North Korea, just never said so. In other words, they played like they were opposing it in some real way, while already resigned to it.

Where Kim says their nuclear program was not on the table, libs adopted basically the same position. The left accepted N Korea as a nuclear power. The gig is up, let’s admit it. But the left can never be completely honest about its stands. They pretend otherwise.

Democrats say that all this is why we need to use diplomacy, have to negotiate, and need to carefully measure our words. Why are any of those justified? Because they say so. It is part of their long pattern of looking at the problem in denial.

The Hill reports:

You can call [nuclear escalation] a failure. I accept that characterization over the last two decades,” Rice said in an interview on CNN’s “The Situation Room” with Wolf Blitzer. “But we are where we are. And now we need to decide how to proceed.

Now that we’re here and all…

“When the president of the United States makes statements that could be mistaken for Kim Jong Un’s, it runs a risk of a threat,” Rice said. “We have to be careful. The rhetoric and hot language is itself a challenge. On the Korean side, the North Korean side, we run the risk that they miscalculate the message from the U.S. incorrectly and act.

Oh, our messaging is the greater issue.

“What I worry about is this discussion and preparation potentially for what the administration called preventive war or pre-emptive war, Rice said.

“Decide how to proceed?” Kim Jong Un and N Korea officials have said their right to nuclear weapons is not open to negotiations. Libs say ‘let’s negotiate with them.’ Negotiate what, a 14-minute timeline? Is this negotiating with yourself? We needed to decide how to proceed after Benghazi and you were ever so helpful — plus the media help, too.

Media, as an arm of the left, is a problem in itself. MSM searches for every opportunity to be outraged by Trump’s words. It’s a game to find some small thing in a remark to feign outrage. Always count on the left to lose sight of real enemies and victims.

Secondarily, liberals run to generously offer advice, requiring us to forget their record. The left has been enabling the Kim dynasty for years. Can anyone take their advice seriously? Of course not. Then they say Trump is too bombastic, and that his rhetoric is no different than Kims. Wow, a terrible comparison. But remember they’ve already compared Trump to every dictator, from Hitler to Mussolini to Venezuela; they see no difference.

Now when faced with a contrast between Kim and Trump, they cannot admit it. Yet they don’t seem to have any idea how propaganda works, or how real dictators function.

Even Clinton Def Sec, William Cohen, Republican: “We have a situation where we have two school yard bullies … saying ‘I’ve got a bigger gun'”

All things not being equal. If these dictators were as bad as they admit, why would they want to play up the comparison? Don’t they know the harm of their words? What about diminishing dictators? Sure they claim to be outraged by Trump’s language, but never make much fuss about Kim’s rhetoric. They are concerned with Trump’s threats not Kim’s. And he uses their critique.

A headline comes out in Guam that it would take only 14 minutes for a missile to get there. The left is outraged by another line in the article. A government warning on rules in a nuclear attack: “don’t look at the flash.” (should they have edited it out?) Alarmists ramp up “concerns” about a nuclear attack but then media attacks Trump’s words. The left really has an intelligence deficit — or challenged in using it.

One media analyst said the warning “not to look at the flash” is very scary language. Reality is scary, truth is not comforting. So even publishing a guideline for an attack is offensive to the left. Sorry, these are consequences of nuclear weapons. They call such language apocalyptic. But these are nuclear weapons. Are we to pretend neither exists, the weapons or consequences?

We are faced with another dilemma. Kim needs more time to develop his capabilities, we don’t want to allow him time. Is allowing him time enabling him? According to military experts, ‘time and distance’ have always been the two critical factors in a war with Korea. The distance being the proximity of Seol and other places, and the response time.

Once again, the element of time.(and ‘distance’- relative to capability) By doing nothing, we have willingly provided him time to develop his plans. A game N. Korea played for decades. Until we have done anything to limit or stop him, he will continue on his path. Finally, we do have more sanctions but even that does not stop him.

It’s odd how media are more concerned about Trump than N. Korea. As much as they don’t like Trump or his words that doesn’t make him wrong. In fact, he is right. That further infuriates them. Trump cannot be right. That would alter physics or knock earth off its axis. They would rather believe Kim and let criticism feed Kim’s propaganda.

So N. Korea is a glimpse of insight into how the left would react to a threat or an attack. It shows that with the left their first consideration is politics. Even our national security is subordinate to their politics. That’s the problem. The left keeps saying “this is not some reality show,” this is reality. But the left does not treat it as reality. They marginalize a monster like Kim Jong Un in favor of their political agenda.(what got us here) The left is too dumb to notice Korea using their words as propaganda. Politics is paramount over all, while 14 minutes becomes just a calculated political trade-off.

Grade A example of the left

Yes, everyone knows who he is but indulge yourself with his blather for a moment before you look: (you’ll probably spot his bias) From news and spews to political hack.

The art of the deal? Spare us. More like the art of the con.

Mexico paying for a wall? A great healthcare bill with lower premiums and more coverage? So much winning we’d get tired of all the winning?

The Republican officials who lined up behind President Trump knew full well his failings of character. They could hear his misogynist braggadocio, witness his insecurities, see his cruelness. Even without all of that, he had no experience that suggested he was up for the job, and no history of service to any cause other than himself.

But the GOP made a cynical calculation. They would tolerate everything so that they could put their far-right agenda in place, and their far-right judges on the courts. It is true that they were rewarded for going against all of the norms of American history and now have a justice on the Supreme Court that shifts its balance likely for a generation. And they are busy filling the ranks of the lower courts. But on the legislative side, they have been revealed as a party of slogans and not ideas. They can whip up the base but have difficulty passing laws.

And now the full cost of their cynicism is coming into frightening focus. The Trump Administration is being buffeted by the most serious criminal investigation since Watergate, and in the end it has the potential to be even more serious and far reaching than that tawdry precedent.

Meanwhile the norms of our civic life are under ruinous assault. We have a level of lying from a White House that is without parallel in our history. Our planet is warming, our infrastructure is crumbling, too many workers are being left behind, and we are bombarded with bombastic, intemperate tweets.

Now, perhaps most frightening of all, we have a genuine crisis in North Korea. To be fair to Mr. Trump, the roots of this crisis stretch back decades. He inherited a problem without any good solutions. But that is the job of being president is to keep horrible situations from becoming catastrophic. And beating your chest and escalating tensions through a war of words befitting schoolyard taunts and not adult diplomacy is the exact wrong approach.

Everyone knows all of this, or should – including all the people who made their bets that putting Mr. Trump in power was worth the risk.

Dan [Liar] Rather

 

Is he not rich! From the guy who schemed with Mary Mapes, wasn’t it, to take down one president. He hasn’t learned his lesson. Every new documentary brings in Dan Rather as a witness to events. I mean his reputation and credibility are road kill on the beltway, but that doesn’t stop him. No, he is now only flummoxed over which adjectives to use about Trump next. I think he’s possessed. Call this one ‘Art of the Smear,’ first edition.

CNN had a navel-gazing moment

A moment of ironic revelation? You decide.

Something remotely interesting happened last night on CNN’s Anderson Cooper. Stars must have been allighned in just the right way.

Anderson had Dana Loesh and posed this question to her:

That was a great setup for Dana to put her foot in the door and push it open.

She did a good job telling him how people don’t share media’s obsession with the Russia story. Dana said they don’t care about it the way the media cares. People care about other things, she said: the jobs agenda, taxes, healthcare. “Show me something actionable…show me some evidence!” They want to know, where are the other stories?

Of course he tried to challenge that but the important thing is he asked the question. Do you think they suddenly decided to entertain the question do Americans care? They didn’t care this far. They thrust it on us as if there were no other news to cover.

Now they wonder if Americans care? Something must have happened in their poll machine interpreter in the backroom. CNN has gotten a lot of push back from the Trump people about other news and other stories about Trump. But they pooh-poohed those complaints. Now, suddenly they pose the question and have a discussion about it.

Turns out that CNN has a a poll and only 27% are very concerned about Russia story.
And 33% are not at all concerned. (between is mixed) Yep, they’ve been polling.

My brief reply to their question is to ask a few questions: (since they asked)

1) Tell us why it is supposed to be so important? Media haven’t made the case yet. Then where is the substance or evidence? What collaboration?

2) Then why it is more important than everything else that I care about? Why is Russia more important than election results? In 8 months they haven’t told us.

3) People are practical and rational. They just want to know why the Russia story is so 5-alarm important? They don’t see it. Is it too much to explain why this is important enough to jeopardize a brand new presidency? Why does Russia trump that?

Funny it was not that long ago, just last year in fact, that Dems said they didn’t care about the 30 thousand emails. They told us people don’t care about that. Even the Media repeatedly told us, at the time, that people care about issues that effect them. Much of the time mainstream media refused to talk about it claiming “there are so many other news stories to cover.” “We only have so much time,” they said.

But stop the presses and news cycle now because no other stories matter or deserve coverage that interrupts their Trumpathon bash about Russia. 24/7 They even claim to know what is important and to hell with what people think, we decide what to cover.

Now vs. then is night and day. People just want a good reason to care about Russia.

Media enemy of the State

What happens when the media becomes the enemy of the state? Well, we’re about to find out — if it hasn’t been getting clearer all along. It isn’t pretty.

There is no limit to how far the mainstream media zealots and agenda-driven hacks will go. They aren’t armed with the Freedom of Press but with a vendetta and an active imagination with a radical anti-American agenda. (like their messiah Obama)

Some will say, ‘but it’s good and necessary to have an adversarial press.’ Yes, but we are past that, way over that adversarial stage. We are in a new era of hate – resistance.

You can look at it this way, we now have an Independent Counsel investigation. We also have a press acting as if it were special prosecutors. That’s how they operate, with an assumption that they have all these extra powers, as lieutenants for the resistance.

So, in effect, we have the 2 major investigations in Congress. (plus the minor ones) both of them now coordinating with Mueller in the Special Counsel. Mueller feels he has de facto power, direct and indirect, over both of those bodies. And final word. Trump has O.

Then there is the press who thinks no rules apply to it — as if there are any in the other three. Media plays collaboratively off all three official bodies. They handle the steady leaks and anonymous sources, even creating their own news when needed to fill any gaps.

There are now leaks coming from the Special Counsel — which we were told would be super tight-lipped. The media worried at first they would be shut out of the info flow because Mueller does not tolerate leaks. Now he appears to be accommodating media.

It is now a full blown coup on the White House.under a unified front. So it comes from multiple directions. Don’t think we are quite there yet? Look around a little more.

Meathead Media is now covering all the voices calling for Sessions to leave. They have their sites on him. More intel leaks are said to justify him leaving. They say he can’t remain. The same voices and media talking heads are also calling for the impeachment process to begin. Many more than Auntie Maxine are chanting impeachment as if there it were as inevitable as his inauguration. Almost like it was planned.

Whether anyone is leaving yet, at this point, they are out to totally shut down this presidency. Make it so unable to function that he cannot survive. That’s the objective.

It just gets worse all the time, as the left ramps up radicalization of all assets at once. With the media being in the center of all the the activity. The harder you look the worse it is.

Here is what News Busters just reported a day ago. Press risks all for its agenda.

At the forum, CIA Director Mike Pompeo took to the stage slammed The New York Times for putting the life of an officer at risk. “We had a publication, you work for Bret, that published the name of an undercover officer at the Central Intelligence Agency. I find that unconscionable,” he angrily declared to the thunderous applause of the audience.

But get this, they seem more concerned for safety of anonymous sources that provide them information than covert operators. This is serious stuff. They are now endangering our national security and our people on the ground. But then the NYT person who was interviewing Pompeo explained it this way — or tried to.

The Times claimed one of the reasons they published the name was because it had appeared in other articles. [their own] Their second reason was that Donald Trump was the president. “[Redacted] is leading an important new administration initiative against Iran,” they said.

Wow, totally outrageous and vindictive. Saying it is justified because Trump is president… which somehow gives them the right to name the person again, with personal information. This is nothing like Valerie Plame. This is real time intel they are messing playing with. Putting lives at risk, daily. Leaks, leaks and super leaks and no one cares.

What we have here is the CIA Director calling out the press right there live, at a security forum. Oh it might not be a hearing at the Capitol but this is even bigger. Right there on stage and people applauded Pompeo for bringing the heat. They deserve public shaming, not that it will work. Is it war?

This is not press or media, these are subversives acting out like seditious cells. That’s how they feel about Trump being President. Jeopardizing the nation’s security means nothing. Disdain for Trump above everything else. Hate rules, Resistance for resistance sake.

Radicals are lose.

And it seems, more and more every day, that not only are there real inherent conflicts and bias with Mueller’s entire team but that he is clearly out to extract a pound of flesh for Comey’s firing. Will he get it? Mueller went rogue from the start. Deep State. All weapons are out in a full assault. Media is at the center driving it all. Hostile enemies within.

Where have we gone?

What a day that OJ was back in the headlines, once again in live coverage. I am not going to talk about him but how this comes up in present circumstances does say something,

Where is responsibility? The media have shown what they are and when do they accept some accountability for outcomes? It reveals the bias and race-baiting going on in media.

When does media analyze and accept its roll in all these major events? I won’t even get into people like Geraldo Rivera or Greta Van Susteren, CNN and all nonstop.

Now we have media anchors today admit at the time of the OJ murder case they were still in high school listening to all this. So this celebrity case phenomena was part of their culture experience growing up. It’s interwoven. What effect does that media precedent have?

Another Chapter in the OJ saga is over, but what does it say about the media circus? Along with other current events. So we also have the grandstanding, sensationalizing media and the damage that has. But there is no shame in media. So Oj’s very long 15 minutes continues along with the media games.

Sort of reminds me of the Bnghazi attack. Life of four Americans ended in a violent attack in 9/11/2012, while the central actors in the events went on undeterred to have high profile careers, even like running for president. It seems like the same culture.

“All In” the Obama propaganda

This is one of the biggest statements of Obama apologists to validate his “legacy” of lies that still echoes across media in America.

” Improved America’s Image Abroad

With new policies, diplomacy, and rhetoric, reversed a sharp decline in world opinion toward the U.S. (and the corresponding loss of “soft power”) during the Bush years.

Favorable opinion toward the United States rose during Obama’s first term in ten of fifteen countries surveyed by the Pew Global Attitudes Project, with an average increase of 26 percent, and have stayed high ever since.” – Washington Monthly

You’d have to give that one 5 giant Pinocchios. 10 of 15 countries surveyed? Really, that’s proof positive — 2-thirds, 66% of their countries surveyed. No sense in repeating the nonsense of this basic claim. It is debunked by flat history.

Anyone watching in the last 8 years, who wasn’t in a coma, can clearly tell you that is a lie, and that world opinion of the US suffered not improved. There were a whole lot of reasons for it. That is simply Obama’s claim, nothing more.

Even if it were true, it proves what exactly? Seems the world has funny reasons for liking us, like when they are rolling us or it is to their advantage. We should celebrate that?

I would bet, like his ballyhooed approval polls, that most of it is based on a personal like of Obama. Did countries, even in Africa, appreciate Obama lecturing and trying to force gay marriage on them? Leading from behind must have turned them on.

How about the countries where he meddled in their affairs and elections: Egypt, Israel, Canada, Russia? Then lighting the Middle East on fire, they must have loved that part? Or the refugee crisis he promoted across the globe. ‘Give us more, please.’

His severe bias against Christians was definitely a winner, with the Christian persecution he ignored. Love is in the air. Seems more like an abusive relationship with ‘we the people’ to me, but they probably liked that. When the world likes you, just consider the source. Then ask why? Brace yourself for the answers. So it didn’t take long to unlike us?!
