FoxNews.com reports that
The White House cut off the audio feed for President Joe Biden after he was posed a question Wednesday on stranded Americans in Afghanistan.
As he wrapped up a meeting on cybersecurity in the State Dining Room, Biden dismissed the press as they continued to ask questions. However, he appeared to answer one reporter’s query before leaving.
NBC’s Peter Alexander asked, “If Americans are still in Afghanistan after the deadline what will you do?”
The White House then proceeded to cut off the audio feed from Biden’s response. It was unclear if the maneuver was coincidental or done to prevent feed viewers from hearing any off-the-cuff comments.
Alexander later confirmed the exchange and noted Biden answered, “You’ll be the first person I call.”
He tweeted “I asked President Biden what he will do if Americans are still in Afghanistan after the 8/31 deadline. His response: ‘You’ll be the first person I call.’ Took no questions.”
Other reporters on the scene confirmed the exchange including Daily Caller correspondent Shelby Talcott, Breitbart correspondent Charlie Spiering, and Voice of America’s Steve Herman.
Republicans accused the White House of trying to protect the president.
Former Mitch McConnell chief of staff Josh Holmes tweeted, “The White House cuts the President’s microphone. Pretty remarkable.”
Republican communicator Matt Whitlock tweeted, “Oh my gosh they cut the President’s microphone so nobody could hear him answer. That’s how worried this White House is about Biden answering questions on Afghanistan.”
Others decried what seemed like a callous response from the president.
Biden has faced intense criticism for the Taliban’s recent takeover of Afghanistan following his removal of U.S. troops, and he’s continually dodged questions regarding efforts to rescue stranded Americans in the country.
Biden has been an arrogant ass for the entire length of his decades-long career as a Professional Politician.
The problem that his Handlers are facing is the fact that dementia often not only magnifies an individual’s worst personality traits, it destroys their “filter” as well.
So, instead of Biden responding to the reporter’s question like an American President, he responded like a 7th-Grader.
Unfortunately for those Americans stranded in Afghanistan, Biden’s answer revealed their fate.
He really does not care whether they make it home or not.
If they are captured, tortured, and beheaded, Biden, Harris, Pelosi, Schumer, and the rest of the Democrats and their minions in the Main Stream Media will blame what happens to them on Former President Trump.
Biden is like every other member of the Democrat Elite: It is never their fault when a plan goes sideways or a decision they made winds up being a bad one.
And, the Democrats who installed him as Leader of the Free World will be as guilty as the Taliban for what happens to those Americans who are unfortunate enough to be left behind in Afghanistan.
The whole world is going to see them meet their fate, thanks to the 24/7 News Cycle.
Biden and his Handlers have damaged our Sovereign Nation so badly that it is liable to take decades to restore America to its rightful place among the world’s countries.
The President of the United States of America is supposed to be our greatest advocate, not our greatest enemy.
And the thing is, even if Biden steps down or is impeached, Heels Up Harris and the Wicked Witch of the West, Nancy Pelosi, are next in the line of succession, at least until the Midterm Elections.
The Democrats have shamed. embarrassed, and endangered our country.
God protect us.

FoxNews.com reports that
Illegal immigrants would be eligible for coverage under their respective health care plans, the 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls taking part in Thursday’s second round of debates in Miami agreed.
Moderator and NBC “Today” host Savannah Guthrie asked the 10 candidates if their health plans would provide coverage for the estimated 11 million people living in the U.S. illegally.
All raised their hands.
“It’s the humane thing to do,” former Vice President Joe Biden said.
“This is not about a handout. This is about an insurance program,” Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind., said.
President Trump seized on the moment in his first tweet of the night, commenting from Japan where he will attend the G-20 summit.
“All Democrats just raised their hands for giving millions of illegal aliens unlimited healthcare,” the president wrote, just minutes after the exchange on the debate stage. “How about taking care of American Citizens first!? That’s the end of that race!”
Blue states like California have embraced providing health care coverage for undocumented immigrants.
Under an agreement between Gov. Gavin Newsom and Democrats in the state Legislature, low-income adults age 19-25 living in California illegally would be eligible for the state’s Medicaid program, known as Medi-Cal. The deal emerged as part of a broader $214 billion budget that Newsom signed into law Thursday.
Giving illegal aliens Government Benefits reserved for American Citizens is not a new idea. Obama and his Administration pushed hard for it.
In fact, he wanted to do it by simply writing an Executive Order!
Terrence P. Jeffrey, writing for CNSNews.com, reported in January of 2016 that
…The solicitor general calls what Obama is doing “prosecutorial discretion.”
He argues that under this particular type of “prosecutorial discretion,” the executive can make millions of people in this country illegally, eligible for Social Security, disability and Medicare.
On April 18, the Supreme Court will hear arguments in the case. Entitled United States v. Texas, it pits President Obama against not only the Lone Star State, but also a majority of the states, which have joined in the litigation against the administration.
At issue is the policy the administration calls Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents, which would allow aliens in this country illegally who are parents of citizens or lawful permanent residents to stay in the United States.
“The Executive Branch unilaterally created a program — known as DAPA — that contravenes Congress’s complex statutory framework for determining when an alien may lawfully enter, remain in, and work in the country,” the attorney general and solicitor general of Texas explained in a brief submitted to the Supreme Court on behalf of the states seeking to block the policy.
“DAPA would deem over four million unlawfully present aliens as ‘lawfully present’ and eligible for work authorization,” says the Texas brief. “And ‘lawful presence’ is an immigration classification established by Congress that is necessary for valuable benefits, such as Medicare and Social Security.”
Same ol’, same ol’…
The Democrat’s benevolence…OUR MONEY.
So, by giving an individual, who has broken our laws, by entering our Sovereign Nation illegally, Federal Benefits, reserved to provide for the welfare of actual American Citizens, these wannabe Democratic Presidential Candidates somehow believe that they are “taking care” of dutifully executing our Nation’s Laws?
Sure they are.
And Rosie O’Donnell has a “bikini body”. (Let that image settle in for a moment.)
Is breaking into our country, something that should be rewarded?
What makes the current influx of illegal immigrants exempt from the rules and regulations that every other generation of immigrants to this country had to abide by in order to become legal citizens of the greatest nation in the world? By being here illegally, they are not entitled to the same rights as natural-born or naturalized American citizens.
And, yet, even as I write this, they are in our hospitals, taking advantage of our charity and the finest health care system in the world, and driving our streets, with either forged drivers licenses or those obtained from states who have acquiesced and given them to these “undocumented workers”.
This is in no way a human rights issue. Freedom is God-given, and with freedom comes responsibility. With citizenship comes responsibility, like paying taxes and making your own way.
My concerns about the Democrats’ coddling of the illegal aliens and the often-proposed “Path to Citizenship” business, can be divided into three bullet points. (Hey, I’m a Former VP of Marketing. What do you expect?)
1. Patriotism – Will these new “citizens” be willing to fly our flag above theirs? Will they be willing, if called upon, to serve in our Armed Forces, at home or abroad? Will they love this country, more than the one they left?
2. Loyalty – When these “new Americans” achieve the right to vote, are they all going to vote Democrat, so that they can receive more FREE STUFF? Will they honestly embrace our sovereign nation as their new home? Or, will they remain loyal to their country of origin?
3. Immigration – Are we rewarding illegal behavior, while at the same time, insulting all of the brave souls who have come here legally, seeking a better life for themselves and their families?
I understand that people want a better life for themselves and their children. Our ancestors were all immigrants in this land, except for American Indians, and they got here by crossing the Bering Straight. But there is a huge difference between immigrating here legally and sneaking in illegally, between assimilating into an existing culture, and insisting on replacing a country’s existing culture with that of the country you left.
I’m all for assisting anyone in becoming a legal citizen of the United States, if that is their wish. But, it must be done the right way, and they must accept responsibility for their illegal entry, show a willingness to learn our language, and embrace our American way of life, including respecting the American Flag.
The Far Left Democratic Politicians on that stage last night, like those the night before, exhibited all the symptoms of a disease that I’ve noticed that all of the Far Left exhibit: Narcissistic-Reality-Denial-Over-Educated-Beyond-Their-Intelligence Syndrome. The patient tends to rely on his self-assumed superior intellect, denying the reality of the world around him to the point of forsaking both his allegiance to and concern for the people of the country that has provided him with both his livelihood and his well-being.
This syndrome seems to be extremely pernicious in academic and political figures. The patient actually believes that he is an expert on everything, to the point where he can write and distribute instructional theses to seasoned professionals while lecturing them in a didactic manner.
The only treatment for Narcissistic-Reality-Denial-Over-Educated-Beyond-Their-Intelligence Syndrome at this time is “refudiation” and isolation. The people who are being affected by these individuals must, in a clear and over-whelming manner, let the patient know that they do not accept their attitude or actions and put them in a “time-out”.
In the case of whomever is chosen to be the Democratic Presidential Candidate in the 2020 Election, Americans must send a clear rejection of the anti-American Far Left Democratic Party and their Marxist Political Ideology, when we vote in the 2020 Election by re-electing President Donald J. Trump..
Y’know…at the rate that these educated-beyond-their-intelligence, imperious, Marxism-loving, “Social Justice Warrior” buffoons keep obviously virtue-signaling about wanting to intentionally run our nation into the ground, I fully expect each and every one of them, one day soon, to respond to an economic question at one of their campaign stops, when asked about the rights and welfare of our veterans and our average hard-working American Citizens, to answer:
Let them eat arugula!
Until He Comes,
I’m so old that I can remember when Saturday Night Live was actually funny.
FoxNews.com reports that
Donald Trump called for courts to test NBC and “Saturday Night Live” in a fiery tweet on Sunday that followed the final airing of the sketch show until the New Year.
“SNL” wrapped up a year of political humor directed at the Trump administration with a parody of the Christmas movie “It’s a Wonderful Life,” in which it posited a world wherein Donald Trump, played by Alec Baldwin, was never elected president of the United States.
The sketch, which featured returning guest stars Ben Stiller as Michael Cohen, Robert De Niro as Robert Mueller and Matt Damon as Brett Kavanaugh, showed Trump being led through a Christmas party in a world where Hillary Clinton became president. As each person from his administration approaches, Trump learns that him not being president worked out for the benefit of everyone. For example, the sketch suggested that he and Melania got a divorce and remarried others, Kavanaugh never made it onto the Supreme Court and Mueller was able to spend more time with his kids instead of having to “investigate some idiot for treason.”
Trump responded to the sketch on Sunday morning by jabbing both the sketch show and NBC.
Trump tweeted: “A REAL scandal is the one-sided coverage, hour by hour, of networks like NBC & Democrat spin machines like Saturday Night Live. It is all nothing less than unfair news coverage and Dem commercials. Should be tested in courts, can’t be legal? Only defame & belittle! Collusion?”
Trump previously commented on the content of “SNL” following the season premiere in which Kanye West donned a “Make America Great Again” hat and gave a lengthy speech at the close of the show.
“Like many, I don’t watch Saturday Night Live (even though I past hosted it) – no longer funny, no talent or charm. It is just a political ad for the Dems. Word is that Kanye West, who put on a MAGA hat after the show (despite being told “no”), was great. He’s leading the charge!” Trump tweeted at the time.
As Variety notes, Trump has also come after NBC in the past for what he perceives to be unfair coverage, even calling for the FCC to take action against the network’s broadcast license.
Back in May of this year FoxNews.com reported that
…Actor and comedian Joe Piscopo is joining the growing group of “Saturday Night Live” alums who’ve spoken out against the show’s perceived liberal bias.
Piscopo starred in the late-night comedy show between 1980 and 1984, where he was famous for his impression of Frank Sinatra.
…Back in 2017, Piscopo told The Hollywood Reporter that despite being a lifelong Democrat, he supported Trump, his acquaintance for 25 years, during the presidential election.
‘“The reason I voted for Trump is because he said two words I’ve never heard a politician utter in my life,” he explained at the time. “Two words: ‘Inner city.’ I’m a spokesman for the Boys and Girls Club in New Jersey.
“I’ve walked the inner city 25 years. My mission in life has been at-risk children… I’m a blue-dog Democrat. So what am I? A moderate conservative? I don’t even know what I am. All I know is when it comes to jobs, I’m a union guy.”
Piscopo, who described himself as an “Italian Catholic pro-lifer,” considered running for New Jersey governor as a Republican but ultimately decided that same year not to do so.
The entertainer isn’t the only SNL alum who has openly shared their conservative views over the years.
Rob Schneider, a veteran of SNL, told The New York Daily News in April he believed Baldwin’s Trump impersonation is ruining the show because the actor lets his personal politics take center stage.
Rob Schneider: “To me, the genius of Dana Carvey was Dana always had empathy for the people he played, and Alec Baldwin has nothing but a fuming, seething anger towards the person he plays.”
“The fun of ‘Saturday Night Live’ was […] you never knew which way they leaned politically,” said the 54-year-old. “You kind of assumed they would lean more left and liberal, but now the cat’s out of the bag [and] and they are completely against Trump, which I think makes it less interesting because you know the direction the piece is going.”
Okay, gentle readers, here we go…
First of all, Alec Baldwin attempting to portray ANYONE being obnoxious and arrogant is like Rosie O’Donnell being the spokesperson for Weight Watchers.
On April 11, 2007, Baldwin displayed his wonderful parenting skills in a verbal tirade which he unleashed in a phone call to his daughter…
After Ireland failed to answer her father’s scheduled morning phone call from New York on April 11, Alec went berserk on her voice mail, saying “Once again, I have made an ass of myself trying to get to a phone,” adding, “you have insulted me for the last time.”
Switching his train of thought, Baldwin then exercised his incredible parenting skills and took a shot at his ex-wife, declaring, “I don’t give a damn that you’re 12-years-old or 11-years-old, or a child, or that your mother is a thoughtless pain in the ass who doesn’t care about what you do.” The irate Baldwin went on to say, “You’ve made me feel like s**t” and threatened to “straighten your ass out.”
“This crap you pull on me with this goddamn phone situation that you would never dream of doing to your mother,” screamed Baldwin, “and you do it to me constantly over and over again.”
Before hanging up, Baldwin warned the child, “You better be ready Friday the 20th to meet with me.” That’s tomorrow
To call Alec Baldwin a hypocrite would be an insult to hypocrites.
Saturday Night Live used to be hysterically funny.
From the days of Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, and Garrett Morris to the days of Dennis Miller, Joe Piscopo, and Eddie Murphy, you could tune in on a Saturday Night and expect to be entertained…not lectured to by a bunch of self-righteous Liberals who were still throwing a temper tantrum over losing a Presidential Election which took place almost one and one-half years previously.
Just like the Late Night Talk Shows that run on the Broadcast Networks from Monday through Friday, SNL has ceased being funny and entertaining.
Now, like Colbert, Kimmel, et al, Saturday Night Live has become an official Propaganda Arm for the Democratic Party, trading humor for hubris and punch lines for politics.
President Trump makes a very good point.
For years, the Democrats have been screaming hysterically about Conservative Talk Radio Programs, which have sprung up since the Godfather of that genre, Rush Limbaugh, saved AM Radio with the format.
They attempted Liberal Talk Radio, launching “Air America”, which eventually went down in flames like the Hindenburg.
If all these programs which I have mentioned continue to insist on being one-sided “spin machines” for the Democratic Party, then perhaps they should be treated as political programming and be regulated under the jurisdiction of the FCC as such.
Or, they could try to be funny, entertaining, and unbiased.
Although, considering the and the lack of intellect and character of those who appear on the programs in question, my suggestion is probably beyond their capabilities.
Until He Comes,
What goes around, comes around…
Multiple sources have confirmed to DailyMail.com that Megyn Kelly is out at NBC.
This move comes just 48 hours after the embattled host made remarks in which she defended blackface on Today.
Kelly tried to deal with the scandal by delivering a tearful apology on-air and welcoming two black panelists to discuss the fraught and horrifying history of the practice, but it did no good.
‘Megyn Kelly is done. She is not ever coming back,’ said an NBC executive with knowledge of the situation.
‘We are just working out timing of the announcement but mark my word – she is gone and will never be seen on NBC live again.’
The source then added: ‘Here’s the worst part – her deal is a non-break deal – so she walks away with all that money. It’s disgusting and heads should roll here because of it.’
A spokesperson for NBC declined to comment at this time.
The only thing remaining is for Kelly’s lawyers to meet with NBC executives to finalize an exit package.
Page Six is reporting that Kelly is now asking that Ronan Farrow be present for that meeting, in a move that likely relates to the former NBC correspondent’s claims that the network killed his Harvey Weinstein expose.
Kelly had previously called on NBC to investigate why the story was shelved, which is why Farrow took his expose to The New Yorker.
During the 2016 Presidential Campaign, Newt Gingrich cut straight to the heart of the situation regarding Ms. Kelly’s attitude toward Republican Candidate Donald J. Trump as Breitbart.com reported at the time…
NEWT GINGRICH: Let me point out something to you: The three major networks spent 23 minutes attacking Donald Trump that night, and 57 seconds on Hillary Clinton’s secret speeches. You don’t think that is a scale of bias worthy of Pravda?
MEGYN KELLY: If Trump is a sexual predator, that is–
GINGRICH: He’s not a sexual predator. You can’t say that. You could not defend that statement.
KELLY: I have not taken a position on it.
GINGRICH: I’m sick and tired of people like you using inflammatory language that is not true.
KELLY: Excuse me, Mr. Speaker, you have no idea whether it is true or not. What we know–
GINGRICH: Neither do you.
KELLY: I’m not taking a position on it.
GINGRICH: Yes you are. When you used the words, you took a position. It is very unfair of you to do that, Megyn.
GINGRICH: That is exactly the bias people are upset by.
KELLY: I think that your defensiveness on this speaks volumes, sir.
GINGRICH: Let me suggest to you —
KELLY: No let me make my point. What I said if if Trump is a sexual predator, than it is a big story. And what we saw on that tape was Trump himself saying he liked to grab women by the genitals, and kiss them against their will. Then we saw 10 women come forward after he denied it at a debate … He denies it all, which is his right. We don’t know what the truth is. My point to you is, as a media story, we don’t get to say the 10 women are liars. We have to cover that story.
GINGRICH: Sure, so it took 23 minutes for the networks to cover that story. And Hillary Clinton had a secret speech in Brazil to a bank that pays her $225,000 saying that her dream is an open border where 600 million people could come to America, that is not worth covering?
Do you want me to go back to the tapes of your show recently? You are fascinated with sex and you don’t care about public policy.
KELLY: Me, really?
GINGRICH: That’s what I get out of watching you tonight.
KELLY: You know what, Mr. Speaker? I’m not fascinated by sex, but I am fascinated by the protection of women and understanding what we’re getting in the Oval Office.
GINGRICH: And therefore, we’re going to send Bill Clinton back to the East Wing, because you are worried about a sexual predator. Do you want to comment on whether the Clinton ticket has a relationship to a sexual predator?
KELLY: We on ‘The Kelly File’ have covered that story as well, sir.
GINGRICH: I want to hear you say the word. Say “Bill Clinton is a sexual predator.” I dare you. Say “Bill Clinton, sexual predator.”
KELLY: Mr. Speaker, we have covered that. We on “The Kelly File” have covered the Bill Clinton story as well. We’ve hosted Kathleen Willey. But he is not on the ticket.
Kelly ended the segment by telling Gingrich he needed to take his “anger issues” and “spend some time working on them.”
And, with that interview, Pot met kettle.
Megyn Kelly is a perfect example of the old proverb which admonishes us not to shoot ourselves in our own foot.
After becoming Fox News’ “Next Big Thing” and rising to the top of the Cable TV Ratings ,after being given Sean Hannity’s 8 p.m. Central time slot, Ms. Kelly started to read her own press clippings and grew to believe that she was the most important story out there and NOT the news which she was supposed to be reporting.
During the Presidential Campaign, her vitriol aimed at the Republican Candidate turned off those who had helped her to rise to prominence. Quite frankly, if they had wanted to listen to incessant attacks against Mr. Trump, they could have turned over to the Main Stream Media.
With the Political Ascension of Donald J. Trump, she chose to eschew the “Fair and Balanced” Reporting that vaulted Fox to the top of the Cable News Ratings, instead, during the Presidential Campaign, opting to join the baying “newshounds” of the Main Stream Media in their quest to bring down the Republican Candidate by any means necessary.
Unfortunately for Ms. Kelly, her strategy backfired on her miserably, costing her rating points and allowing Sean Hannity to take over the lead among Fox News’ Evening Programs. and making her look like a fool when Trump won the Presidency.
Then, her book was so awful, that Amazon.com had a hard time keeping up with their dutiful erasure of all of the one-star ratings that Ms. Kelly received.
Just like the Internet Trolls, who invade Facebook Political Pages and Political Websites, in order to disrupt conversation and call attention to themselves, the MSM, including Ms. Kelly as well, through the creation of their own facts, permanently damaged their own credibility, quite probably beyond all repair.
So, Ms. Kelly moved on to NBC, where she joined the rest of her Main Stream Media Colleagues.
After signing a “yuge” multi-million dollar contract, Ms. Kelly thought that she had it made and was finally free to be the “Broadcast Journalist” that she longed to be, unfettered by any pressure to be “fair and balanced”.
And then, she found out that, in the business world of the Liberal Main Stream Media, “Broadcast Journalism” left the building with Walter Cronkite and David Brinkley, being replaced long ago by “Political Correctness”.
So now, Ms. Kelly finds herself with no place to go.
She has ticked off both Fox News and the Main Stream Media, becoming an albatross around the neck of any news organization that would choose to hire her, because to put it quite simply, once you torque off the American Public, you never get them back.
Just ask the Dixie Chicks.
Until He Comes,
The same bunch of “morally superior” East and West Coast Liberals, who have been insulting and talking down to average Americans, from their positions of notoriety and power, simply because we believe in Traditional American Faith and Values and we would not swallow the Kool-aid they we offering during the 2016 Presidential Campaign and elected Donald J Trump as President, instead of the Queen of Mean, knew all along about the debauchery going on both behind closed doors and out in their open in their places of business.
FoxNews.com reports that
NBC News confirmed that the accusation also noted the alleged behavior continued in the workplace after the games.
“Over the course of several hours, my client detailed egregious acts of sexual harassment and misconduct by Mr. Lauer,” Ari Wilkenfeld of Wilkenfeld, Herendeen & Atkinson told Fox News in an emailed statement. “In fewer than 35 hours, NBC investigated and removed Mr. Lauer…It is our hope that NBC will continue to do what it can to repair the damage done to my client—their employee—and any other women who may come forward.”
Lauer’s co-anchor Savannah Guthrie and “Today” colleague Hoda Kotb were given the rough task of breaking the news to viewers.
“This is a sad morning here at ‘Today’ and at NBC News,” Guthrie said before reading a note from NBC News Chairman Andy Lack.
“Dear colleagues, on Monday night, we received a detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace by Matt Lauer,” Lack’s statement read. “It represented, after serious review, a clear violation of our company’s standards. As a result, we’ve decided to terminate his employment.”
The statement said this is the first complaint regarding Lauer’s behavior the company has received “in the over 20 years he’s been at NBC News.”
“We were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident,” the statement said.
Later in the day, stories started pouring forth which revealed that Lauer’s perversion was the worst kept secret at NBC. Tales of a secret button under his desk which locked the door to his office, gifts of sex toys along with descriptive letters sent to women, along with inappropriate touching and lewd remarks formed a pattern of behavior openly displayed by Lauer while he worked at “The Peacock Network” for the last 20 years.
Lauer is just the latest in an avalanche of Liberals in positions of power and notoriety who are being brought down by revelations of a consistent pattern of sexual harassment in the workplace.
Why is this happening to all of these Liberals?
Rush Limbaugh and a caller to his nationally syndicated radio talk show entertained an interesting theory that the caller advanced yesterday which could explain this…
CALLER: …that the product of liberalism is really the breeding ground for this problem. We’ve been told that rape is not really about sex, it’s about power. And liberalism is about power and increasing people in positions who can leverage that power to abuse people in this way. And I think it would be very helpful — I know the establishment wouldn’t do it — but I think it would be very helpful for us to point out that these people who are committing these offenses fit the exact mold who are told, you know, commit these kinds of offenses. They’re guys in power, they happen to be white guys in power, and, lo and behold, they’re all liberals. And, lo and behold, liberalism leads to more guys
—RUSH: This is interesting. Let me see if I understand what you’re saying. You may really be on to something. Your premise starts with — by the way, this belief, this theory that rape or sexual abuse is not about sex, it’s about power, can be traced back to a feminist author named Susan Brownmiller who wrote a book in the seventies. I forget the title of it, but if you wanted to date a feminist in the seventies you had to read this and you had to be conversant in it. I know because I did.
RUSH: But this is where the theorem was advanced that rape or sexual harassment is not about sex, it’s about power. So your theory is that she’s right and that liberalism is the breeding ground for this power and that we’re actually seeing it on display, that the Charlie Roses and the Weinsteins and all these guys are not doing this really for sex; they’re doing it for the exertion of power over people.
CALLER: Well, if for no other reason than their power affords them the opportunity. So liberalism, you could point out or you could make the case that it is self-fulfilling in this way. That people get powerful and they start to misbehave because they’re powerful. And it’s all on their side, really, right now.
RUSH: Yeah, but how does that distinguish from, say, conservatives in power? I mean, power is power no matter who has it and where it is. How would you distinguish it?
CALLER: Well, I mean, as a political ideology, conservatism is technically the antidote where we’re trying to reduce the institutional power and give that back to the individual where they’re more accountable. Whereas, you know, liberalism, you’re building bureaucracy, and you’re putting people into positions and — by virtue of that fact — putting them in the position to abuse women who work for them.
RUSH: Yeah. Okay. And you know how it extends even further? Then you use that power to put a net around everything so that the word of it doesn’t get out. For example, how about this news that there has been $15 million in payouts to silence women who have been abused and harassed by members of Congress? And there has been a big movement on to have these people named and identified. It is the power structure that keeps their names hidden. It is the power structure that keeps their deeds and activities hidden.
But you’re right about all this. Liberalism is about the pursuit of power for the purposes of using it against other people and for the advancement of your own agenda, while liberalism portrays itself as fair and tolerant and open-minded and understanding and gentle and snowflaky and all of that. It’s an interesting point. I like it. The quest to further enable Americans to understand liberalism and how liberalism actually breeds the circumstances for all of this liberal, male, abusive, power-related behavior.
By the way, the Susan Brownmiller book title: “Against Our Will”.
As more and more of these Lecherous Liberal Lizards have the rocks of positions of power overturned and they come crawling out into the disinfection of the sun’s piercing rays, average Americans are going to bear witness to a scene reminiscent of the ill-fated passengers fleeing the Titanic.
All those who supported these public figures will now disown them and try their best to distance themselves from them, lest their careers and very reputations are ruined along with their former friend and associate’s.
It is a sad situation for the innocent victims and families which will be hurt by these revelations of the debauchery of Liberal Americans in positions of notoriety and power.
However, if I may say so, it does provide a bit of Schadenfreude given the extremely Pharisetical nature of the self-proclaimed “smartest people in the room”, who have, unfortunately for them, been caught exposing their shortcomings.

“The United States cannot and should not discriminate on the basis of religion. The free exercise of religion is at the very heart of our constitutional guarantee for all persons of this country.” – Vice-President Mike Pence
FoxNews.com reports that
NBC’s “Will & Grace” took another shot at conservatives on Thursday night, using exaggerated stereotypes to portray the right as homophobic with not-so-subtle jabs at Vice President Mike Pence.
Sean Hayes’ character, Jack, explained to Eric McCormack’s Will that he lost touch with his son because, “He moved to Texas, married someone super conservative, and he didn’t even invite me to his wedding.”
Upon realizing that he has a grandson in Texas, Will encouraged Jack to bond with him but Sean Hayes’ character didn’t exactly love the idea.
“How am I supposed to connect with a kid from Texas? I can’t fish or hunt or tell a woman what to do with her fetus,” he replied.
However, it turns out that Jack might have something in common with his grandson after all, as he is suspected to be gay. He is sent to a mock gay conversion camp called “Straighten Arrow,” where they plan to “pray away the gay,” complete with a poster of Vice President Pence.
The Media Research Center’s TV reporter Amelia Hamilton wrote that while conversion therapy is often tied to Pence, “the accusations have just never stuck, except in liberals’ minds.”
“Anything to keep pushing an oft-debunked myth, I suppose, right?” Hamilton wrote. “Debunked myths, conservative stereotypes, and overwrought situations? It looks like ‘Will & Grace’ knows they’re not going to win anybody over by being honest.”
Last month, the premiere episode of NBC’s reincarnated “Will & Grace” was essentially a 30-minute anti-Trump infomercial. It referred to First Lady Melania Trump as a “hostage,” portrayed Midwesterners as people who didn’t eat vegetables until Michelle Obama came along and featured Debra Messing’s character, Grace, complaining about the results of last year’s presidential election. People magazine even published a list of all the times the show ripped Trump.
While “Will & Grace” continues to mock conservatives, the creators of the show have actually admitted that they don’t see eye to eye with the man who has turned CNN into a left-leaning network. Creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick told The Hollywood Reporter they only agreed to a reunion because former NBC Entertainment president Jeff Zucker isn’t involved anymore, as he is now the president of the liberal CNN.
I wrote last month about the premiere of the “retooled” “Will and Grace”, a sitcom that actually used to be funny.
The writers and producers of the show had seemingly dedicated this reboot to a sustained attack against average folks like myself, who, as described by the “cool” word of the Millennials, self-identify as Christian Americans.
Or, to describe us in a different light, average Americans living in America’s Heartland between the coasts, whom Hillary Clinton less than lovingly described as “Deplorables”.
The fact of the matter is, no matter how some seek to restrict the Religious Liberty of Christian Americans, the death of Christianity in America has been greatly exaggerated.
“Organized Religion”, a term usually spoken in derision by those seeking to somehow impugn the generations-old practice of Christian Americans to be a member of and attend the weekly worship service of the denomination and church building of their choice, is being attacked constantly by Atheists, Liberals, and Progressives (but, I repeat myself) to further degrade the spiritual backbone of the “Shining City Upon a Hill”, as President Ronald Reagan referred to our country.
For what now seems like an eternity, those on the left side of Political Aisle, have focused their attention on “radically changing” America.
They soon realized that they simply could not do it through popular culture and educational indoctrination, inundating America’s children with both overt and subliminal imaging designed to countermand the Traditional American Values that they were being raised with, in normal American Households, out here in “Flyover Country”, otherwise known as America’s Heartland…or “the Red States”.
Modern Liberals soon figured out that the way to program Americans into believing that “all paths lead to God” and that cradle-to-grave Nanny-State Government were the new American Standards for living our daily lives, was to turn Christian American Houses of Worship away from being instructors of the Word of God and a sanctuary in which to worship Our Creator, to, instead, being purveyors of the joys of Popular Culture. Wednesday Night Bible Studies were soon replaced by Yoga Classes and Encounter Groups. Religious Leaders were soon quoting philosophy, instead of the Bible in their Sunday Morning Sermons.
And, instead of taking a stand against those things of the world which were directly opposed to what is found in God’s Word, these “new, enlightened” churches started standing up for the “right” of a woman to have her baby prematurely yanked out of her womb with a set of tongs, standing up for the right of Adam to “marry” Steve, when the Bible states that marriage is between a man and a woman, and standing up for the equality of all faiths, when the Son of God firmly states, in John 14:6, that
I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
The push to fill their pews and their coffers and to attract new members without offending their popular culture-influenced “sensibilities”, has seemingly the Good News of Salvation through Jesus Christ in second place behind “Do what you want to do. Would you like to come on in and hang out for a while”?
So, is Christianity in America going to “fade away”?
Not any time soon.
Being filled with human beings, churches have made a lot of mistakes, However, they have also done a lot of good in the name of the Lord.
For example, the church I attend, houses a Food Pantry, operated in co-operation with other churches in our area, which feeds 2,000 people per month, counseling them, and getting them the assistance that they need.
Churches today have to walk a fine line.
The spiritual battle the influence of American Popular Culture and those seeking the Will of God in their lives, takes all the strength…and prayer, that Christians can muster.
Modern sitcoms, such as “Will and Grace” are written by Liberals, and are thus infused with their beliefs as to what is “Normal”, moral, and ethical. And, as seen by how rapidly these programs appear and disappear from national television, their views reflect those of a minority of America’s population.
Modern Liberals seem to have great difficulty comprehending the role which Our Creator, the God of Abraham, played and plays in this Grand Experiment, known as the United States of America.
Why have Liberals ratcheted up their anti-Christian Vitriol and Negativity since January 21, 2009?
Why are they so focused on removing America’s Christian Heritage?
Well, as is usually my wont, I have been doing some “reckoning” about this.
It seems to this ol’ Southern Boy, living here in the Heartland, that America’s Christian Heritage and the very real fact of His influence in building and shaping America’s growth into the greatest country on the face of God’s Green Earth, not only stifles and interferes with Modern Liberals’ “anything goes”, “share the wealth”, “hive-mind”, “man is his own god” Political Ideology, but the reality of God’s very existence, somewhere deep in their miserable, bitter psyches, scares the mess out of them.
The election of Donald J. Trump as President on November 16, 2016 exacerbated Modern American Liberals anti-Christian Psychosis.
The problem for them is, they are still hopelessly outnumbered.
According to a Pew Forum Survey, more than 13 million Americans are self-described atheists and agnostics, comprising less than 6% of the U.S. public.
I have never understood Atheists, especially the so-called activists among them.
Our Constitution provides for Freedom of Religion.
According to the Supreme Court, in their Ruling abolishing School Prayer, Atheism is a religion, which the Americans who embrace this nihilism are free to practice.
So, why the continuous full-blown attack on the Faith which our Founding Fathers wrote so eloquently about, and which has sustained this “shining city on a hill” through times of internal and external strife?
In other words, why are activist Atheists (and Progressives) so intent to either limit or completely eliminate Christianity’s influence on everyday American Life, as exhibited by the continued attacks on the “Will and Grace” Program?
Why don’t they attack the political/religious ideology of Islam with the same fervor?
The answer to this question is simple: Cowards will always tell you whom they are afraid of. They will avoid them, like one avoids a child with Chicken Pox.
Additionally, they expect Christians to allow them to take control by “turning the other cheek.”
Evidently, they never read the scriptures which describe Jesus running the “money lenders” out of the temple, overturning tables, and expressing his righteous indignation in a way in which no one could mistake it for anything else.
Or, perhaps, it’s the overwhelming overestimation of their own intelligence, which results from ignoring the influence of the God of Abraham in their life.
So, what drives them in this “Unholy Crusade”?
Bitterness, emptiness, and an unfulfilled longing in their soul which they cannot put a finger on, is the only explanation.
Otherwise, why would they fight so hard against the influence of and worship of Someone they don’t personally believe in?
This reboot of “Will and Grace” will, sooner than later, be cancelled.
The Faith of Our Fathers will remain.
Until He Comes,
That big boom heard across the nation yesterday, was not some “Super Cell Storm”, as seen in the stupid Pro-Climate Change movie, “The Day After Tomorrow”.
It was actually the sphincters of all the executives at NBC/Comcast/Universal and the rest of network executives, slamming shut together in unison.
Reuters.com reports that
U.S. President Donald Trump suggested challenging licenses for NBC and other broadcast news networks following reports by NBC News that his secretary of state had called him a “moron” after a discussion of the U.S. nuclear arsenal.
“With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Bad for country!” Trump, a Republican, wrote in a post on Twitter on Wednesday.
Trump and his supporters have repeatedly used the term “fake news” to cast doubt on media reports critical of his administration, often without providing any evidence to support their case that the reports were untrue.
Trump kept up his criticism of the media in an appearance with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, saying: “It is frankly disgusting the press is able to write whatever it wants to write.”
In a tweet late on Wednesday, Trump said: “Network news has become so partisan, distorted and fake that licenses must be challenged and, if appropriate, revoked. Not fair to public!”
Any move to challenge media companies’ licenses, however, would likely face significant hurdles.
The Federal Communications Commission, an independent federal agency, does not license broadcast networks, but issues them to individual broadcast stations that are renewed on a staggered basis for eight-year periods.
Comcast Corp, which owns NBC Universal, also owns 11 broadcast stations, including outlets in New York, Washington, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, Dallas and Chicago.
A Comcast spokeswoman referred questions to NBC, which did not immediately respond.
ABC, owned by Walt Disney Co, declined to comment.
Shares in media companies fell, potentially reflecting concerns the war of words could worsen. Comcast was down 0.8 percent, while Disney shed 1.4 percent. CBS Corp fell 1.2 percent and Twenty-First Century Fox slid 2.8 percent.
Recon Analytics analyst Roger Entner called the market response a “short-term irrational knee-jerk reaction” and said Trump faced essentially insurmountable hurdles to getting licenses pulled.
A spokesman for FCC Chairman Ajit Pai did not immediately comment.
Gordon Smith, the chief executive of the National Association of Broadcasters, defended the media’s free speech rights.
“It is contrary to this fundamental right for any government official to threaten the revocation of an FCC license simply because of a disagreement with the reporting of a journalist,” Smith said in a statement.
ABC, owned by Walt Disney Co, declined to comment.
Numerous Democrats criticized Trump and urged Pai to denounce Trump’s comments.
Senator Ed Markey wrote Pai on Wednesday asking him to “withstand any urges from President Trump to harm the news media and infringe upon the First Amendment,” a reference to the U.S. Constitution’s free speech and press freedom guarantee.
Democratic U.S. Representative Frank Pallone said Trump “seemed to threaten broadcasters’ licenses only because he disagreed with their reporting. This threat alone could intimidate the press and lead to skewed and unfair reporting.”
FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel responded to Trump by tweeting a link to an FCC fact sheet. “Not how it works,” she said on Twitter.
When reviewing licenses the FCC must determine if a renewal is in the public interest, according to an agency fact sheet on its website.
The FCC said in the fact sheet it expects “station licensees to be aware of the important problems and issues facing their local communities and to foster public understanding by presenting programming that relates to those local issues.”
The agency does not issue similar licenses for cable networks such as CNN and MSNBC, or regulate internet news or other websites.
The FCC has said the First Amendment “expressly prohibits the commission from censoring broadcast matter” and that its role “in overseeing program content is very limited.”
In the early 1970s, then-President Richard Nixon and his top aides discussed using the FCC’s license renewal process as a way of punishing the Washington Post for its coverage of the Watergate burglary that ultimately brought down his presidency.
NBC News has reported on tensions between Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and has said Trump sought a dramatic increase in the U.S. nuclear arsenal during a meeting with national security advisers in July. NBC reported Tillerson made his “moron” comment after that meeting.
Trump on Saturday also suggested he should get “equal time” because of what he described as late-night television hosts’ “anti-Trump” material.
The FCC’s equal time rules apply in limited cases to air time for political candidates and not to criticism of elected leaders.
Trump may have been referring to the “Fairness Doctrine” that was designed to ensure broadcasters present opposing viewpoints about public issues. Republican President Ronald Reagan’s administration eliminated it in 1987.
What tickles me about all of this uproar from the Democrats over President Trump fighting back against the Main Stream Media is that fact that two of their heroes, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Barack Hussein Obama, both Democrat Presidents, controlled the News Media during their Administration.
The following article, “Obama, F.D.R. and Taming the Press”, written by Jean Edward Smith, was published in the New York Times on February 2, 2009, shortly after Obama ascended to the Throne of the Regime.
The purpose of the article was to give Obama advice on how to handle the Press Corps.
…No president enjoyed more favorable press coverage than F.D.R., and no president worked more assiduously to cultivate it. Barack Obama got off to an awkward start with the White House press corps. He should patch things up the way Franklin Roosevelt did.
.. Rather than meet the press at a formal session in the East Room (as his predecessors had occasionally done), F.D.R. invited them into the Oval Office. Twice a week the White House press corps gathered around the president’s desk and fired away.
His predecessors Calvin Coolidge and Herbert Hoover had required the questions be submitted in advance and answered only those they wished to. Roosevelt fielded whatever the press tossed out. Correspondents could ask any question they wished, and the president answered off the cuff. But F.D.R. set the ground rules. He would not answer hypothetical questions or those “which for various reasons I do not wish to discuss, or am not ready to discuss, or I do not know anything about.”
…The press was charmed. At his first press conference, on March 8, 1933 — four days after assuming office — F.D.R. shook hands with each of the 125 reporters present, and then bantered with them for the next 40 minutes. He gave them virtually nothing in the way of hard news that they could use, but the informality set a tone that endured for the next 12 years.
Roosevelt even convinced the king of “Info-tainment”, the legendary Walter Winchell, to shill for him during World War II..
And, then, there was “The Lightbringer”, Petulant President Pantywaist himself, Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm)…
In an article posted on AmericanThinker.com on May16,2013, titled “The Obama Mainstream Media Psychodrama”, Thomas Lifson wrote
With his Ivy League pedigree and ability to deliver a speech, Obama charmed the liberal media folk into believing that he was the one they had been waiting for, an inspiring black man on a white horse who could heal our lingering racial wounds, if only given the chance. They hoped he could change an America their progressive belief system held to be flawed by racism, history, and greedy businessmen, and by helping him do so, they too could nudge history along in a positive direction. Perhaps in their own minds making up for whatever personal flaws or unfair advantages they might have possessed along their way to the top of the media food chain. Everyone wants to believe he or she is a good person, doing good things in the overall scheme of things, after all.
So they invested themselves in making the dream come true, attaching their self-concept to his cause. This is why information that was dissonant tended to evoke a rather widespread hostile reaction. Only racists and birthers could doubt any of the official Obama narrative. The Tea Party became an object of hatred, slander, and even physical attacks when it first appeared and threatened the Great Obama Project. When the tea partiers inflicted a serious blow to the political standing of Obama and the Democrats in the 2010 election, taking over the House, they became an obstacle to be removed.
The MSM did indeed try to silence the Tea Party and average Americans who lived between the coasts in general, throughout their 8 years of servitude as President Obama and the Democratic Party’s Propaganda Arm.
When they attempted to drag Hillary Clinton across the Finish Line in the 2016 Presidential Election, in order to continue Obama’s Presidency, those average Americans whom they silenced for 8 years, roared back with a vengeance, shouting down the MSM’s “Chosen One” at voting booths from sea to shining sea.
For the past 10 months, the dejected, bewildered, and unfathomably angry MSM has been attacking President Donald J Trump with an intensity rivaling that of Rosie O’ Donnell at an all-you-can eat buffet.
They simply do not care that they have been making up “news” stories. They figure that low I.Q. Voters will believe their garbage.
The President is well within his rights to come down on them hard. Especially when they start lying about our Foreign Policy. That is borderline treasonous and could very well get Americans who are serving our country killed.
If threatening to pull their licenses is what he has to do to get them to back off the 24/7 news cycle of unrelenting attacks against him and his Administration, more power to him.
President Trump may or may not be able to force the Main Stream Media to be fair.
But, he certainly can get their attention.
Until He Comes,
Will and Grace, was a “groundbreaking” (according to Hollywood Liberals) sitcom which aired on NBC from 1998-2006.
The series centered around Will, a gay lawyer and Grace, a straight interior designer. They both lived in New York. Grace was engaged to a absolute jerk,. When they broke up, she moves in with Will, who happens to be her best friend. It was only supposed to be until Grace found herself a place of her own, but she and Will wound up with each other as permanent roommates. Also featured in the ensemble were Jack, Will’s flamboyant gay friend and Karen, Grace’s secretary/assistant who didn’t really need to work because she married money several times.
As seems to be the pattern nowadays, due to a lack of good writers out in Hollyweird, “Will and Grace” has returned to NBC’s Thursday Night Lineup.
Judging from the first episode, they should have stayed gone.
FoxNews.com reports that
The premiere episode of NBC’s reincarnated “Will & Grace” was essentially a 30-minute anti-Trump infomercial on Thursday night and conservatives have taken notice.
The first episode of “Will & Grace” in 11 years referred to First Lady Melania Trump as a “hostage,” portrayed Midwesterners as people who didn’t eat vegetables until Michelle Obama came along and featured Debra Messing’s character, Grace, complaining about the results of last year’s presidential election.
Grace has somehow landed a job redecorating the Oval Office because Trump “has been pouting that his office is a real dump.”
After a subtle jab that Melania wouldn’t hire anyone for the job who is pretty enough to attract the president, Grace and her assistant headed to the White House, where the show mocked Kellyanne Conway’s infamous couch photo and President Ronald Reagan’s Alzheimer’s disease.
Grace is told Trump wants his the Oval Office “to look like he’s there from time to time,” another obvious shot.
People magazine even published a list of all the times the show ripped Trump.
The premiere episode did well in the ratings department, with 10.2 million viewers tuning in, making it the most-watched scripted show on television Thursday night. The Wrap’s Senior TV Reporter Tony Maglio believes future ratings could depend on viewers who side with the show politically.
“Post-premiere, ‘Will & Grace’ ratings should come back down to Earth, and will soon settle into a pretty predictable range. The return was an event [that] had the nostalgia factor going for it, plenty of promotion and generally favorable reviews,” Maglio told Fox News. ”The show does have a few things working against it though: The younger half of the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic don’t know or care at all about these characters, and a series that takes such a political stance is, by its very nature, divisive.”
Fox News’ Senior Vice President of Marketing and entertainment contributor Michael Tammero was “very excited” for the return of “Will & Grace” but didn’t stick with the episode for the entire 30 minutes.
“It was a very important show, as someone who is gay and married… it was a show that initially played a huge role in changing hearts and minds in this country and advancing LGBTQ issues,” Tammero said. “I expected some anti-Republican, anti-Trump lines, but I did not expect every single line to be some sort of jab.”
Tammero said the show “is on broadcast for a reason, ‘broad’ being they key word,” as networks typically try to to reach the largest possible audience. He can’t predict if the show’s political views will hurt viewership.
“I think it could… I think it will probably hurt the show,” he said. “In Hollywood, we’re seeing a lot of people center-right are turning off and tuning out.”
Conservatives viewers took to Twitter to react, with many noting that they wouldn’t tune in again because they were offended by the show’s politics. One viewer asked, “Why alienate a large part of America?”
Another viewer tweeted that “Will & Grace” used to be a good show but is now simply a “tool for hate,” and dubbed it “Will & Disgrace.”
The Media Research Center’s TV reporter Amelia Hamilton blasted the episode, calling the storyline “a lazy way to take shots at the president for the entire length of the show” and said it was embarrassing.
“Hollywood still hasn’t realized that shows like this do nothing but help Donald Trump,” Hamilton wrote. “When will Hollywood learn that they’re basically running his reelection campaign by doing this?”
Ironically, “Will & Grace” creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick told The Hollywood Reporter they only agreed to a reunion because former NBC Entertainment president Jeff Zucker isn’t involved anymore, since he is now the president of the liberal network CNN Worldwide.
“Zucker was the only reason we had a problem at NBC,” Mutchnick said.
More than likely, Zucker was the reason that you never saw 30-minute hatefests during the series’ original run, like the before-mentioned episode.
Those in power in Hollywood, like the rest of Liberal America’s “Smartest People in the Room”, seem to be under the misguided notion that the majority of Americans think precisely like them, meaning that we all are as dedicated to hating the 45th President of the United States of America as Captain Queeq (Humphrey Bogart in “The Caine Mutiny”) was in his search for the missing strawberries.
I don’t know if their unrequited anguish over the events of November 8, 2016 has eroded their memories, or just plain sent them over the edge of sanity. However, they seem to remain oblivious of the fact that 30 states voted for Donald J. Trump on that fateful night.
During the original run of “Will and Grace”, average Americans watched the program because it was funny, plain and simple. They overlooked the less than stellar living arrangement of the title couple for that very reason.
While Liberals viewed the series as groundbreaking because of the “mainstreaming” of homosexuality, average Americans tuned in because the characters were a “hoot”.
I am sure that Jeff Zucker recognized that and probably fought behind the scenes to keep the show politically neutral in order to maximize the potential viewing audience.
The producers, it now appears, could care less about what the viewers want. Like the oblivious NFL Players, the producers of “Will and Grace” have decided to use their entertainment platform as a political launching pad for diatribes against the American President and those of us who voted for him.
While, like Hillary Clinton herself, vitriol and insults hurled incessantly at the President for 30 minutes may enthrall the “culturally hip” audiences on the East and Left Coasts, here in the Heartland, a television program so weak that it relies on 30 minutes of that to “entertain” their audience will have Americans turned off faster than Rosie O’Donnell in a thong bikini.
This current revival of “Will and Grace” has only been scheduled for 10 episodes.
That’s a wise move. However, judging from the premiere episode the new “Will and Grace” may not even last 2.
And, that would be a blessing.
Until He Comes,
As I have related to you before, I was a Radio News Director during college from 1978-1980, with a staff of 20 student reporters, who each received credit for producing and delivering a 5-minute newscast, once a week, on our College Radio Station.
I can remember sitting in the lecture hall of the (then) Memphis State University Journalism Building, listening to Dr. Williams, whom we all swore did the first newscast of KDKA, America’s first radio station, in 1920. The class was “Introduction to Journalism” and Dr. Van Williams was telling us that the ” key to being a good journalist was objectivity”.
Now, in 2016, one Broadcast/Cable News Organization has become so blatantly objective, that one of America’s two political parties has had no choice but to fire them from hosting their Presidential Primary Candidate Debates.
Breitbart.com reports that
The Republican National Committee (RNC) officially voted on Monday afternoon to sever its business relationship with NBC News for the previously-scheduled Feb. 26, 2016, GOP presidential primary debate, Breitbart News has learned.
The Debate Committee for the RNC met via conference call and after hearing updates from RNC chairman Reince Priebus officially voted to cancel the partnership with NBC, according to sources on the call. The vote was unanimous.
After the October debate hosted by NBC partner CNBC—in which co-moderator John Harwood was roundly criticized for a poor performance—the RNC suspended its relationship with NBC News over that upcoming Houston debate.
“I write to inform you that pending further discussion between the Republican National Committee (RNC) and our presidential campaigns, we are suspending the partnership with NBC News for the Republican primary debate at the University of Houston on February 26, 2016,” Priebus wrote to NBC News chairman Andy Lack back in late October. “The RNC’s sole role in the primary debate process is to ensure that our candidates are given a full and fair opportunity to lay out their vision for America’s future. We simply cannot continue with NBC without full consultation with our campaigns.”
In response, NBC News signaled in a statement at the time that it thought the situation could be resolved.
“This is a disappointing development,” NBC News said in a statement. “However, along with our debate broadcast partners at Telemundo we will work in good faith to resolve this matter with the Republican Party.”
This process also sparked an unprecedented meeting of top officials with almost every GOP presidential campaign, in which campaign managers represented most of the 2016 GOP candidates to fight for better representation in the debate process. Donald Trump’s team and Dr. Ben Carson’s team, as well most of the rest of the campaigns, huddled together to wrest control away from the mainstream media—which has been, until now, dominating the process.
Clearly, however, despite NBC’s previous hopes that the RNC would reinstate the network as a moderator of the upcoming debate, the RNC has officially moved forward with formal actions to end the network’s plans for the Houston debate.
NBC News moderated Sunday evening’s Democratic debate between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley.
The move by the RNC to formally extricate NBC News from the process is sure to seriously harm the media organization’s reputation, and its financial bottom line. Typically, networks make millions of dollars in ad revenue with debate moderation due to the extraordinarily high viewership.
The debate is still on the schedule–it would come after Iowans, New Hampshire citizens, South Carolinians, and Nevadans vote, heading into the all-important SEC Primary of which Texas is a part on March 1–but it’s unclear as of yet who will moderate it or where it will air.
For years, the Main Stream Media has been in bed with politicians and business moguls. While, touting objectivity, they have often fallen way short of that goal.
The Media really came into its own during the 80’s, with the advent of Cable Television, the First Iranian Hostage Crisis, and the ascension and election of President Ronald Wilson Reagan. Their advocacy of all things Liberal became very apparent, as they attacked the greatest president of this generation, mercilessly, giving no quarter.
I believe that Reagan’s election was a wake up call to the MSM. They realized that, if let to their own devices, the American Public would elect a Conservative as president, every time. And, they just couldn’t have that. They were already in too deep to their Democratic, Progressive Masters.
So, America’s Media forsook their objectivity, choosing to help to shape current events, instead of just reporting on them, in an effort to produce outcomes which would be most beneficial to the Progressive Cause.
Now, in 2015, after propping up Barack Hussein Obama and getting him re-elected, their own hubris has given them an exaggerated sense of self-importance, as to their role in our society.
Their Achilles’ Heel , the before-mentioned hubris, blinded them to the potential of the upstart Fox News Channel in informing America’s population in the Heartland, and that has been their undoing, much to Obama’s consternation.
Every night of the week, the Fox News Channel beats the mainstream outlets in popularity. There is a reason for that.
Fox News is exactly what it claims to be: fair and balanced.
The Mainstream News Channels are so far up Obama’s and the Democratic Party’s backsides that they wouldn’t know the truth if it French-kissed them.
Just as it was during the Russian Revolution, when Vladimir Leninn seized control of Russia from the Czar, and just as it was during the era of the National Socialist Party in Germany, when a former altar boy and house painter named Adolf Hitler took over, the first thing that totalitarian governments do is to take control of media, for propaganda purposes.
Through threats, coercion, and promises of reward, that is exactly what Obama did when he took office.
Of course, he did not have to try very hard. The Main Stream Media were already Obama Fanboys, their staffs being made up of a majority of Liberals.
Heck, they were posting fictitious propaganda about Barack Hussein Obama, before he was even elected president.
The election of Barack Hussein Obama is the best thing that ever happened to the Fox News Channel. It has solidified their position as the Leader in Cable News.
And, the thing about it, is the fact that Fox News is not the only source by which average Americans can obtain the truth about Obama and his administration. The New Media, the Internet, has proven to be an invaluable source for dissemination of information.
Principled reporters, such as the late Andrew Breitbart and Michelle Malkin, turned up the heat on both Obama and the MSM, by providing an alternative source through which Americans can receive news, unfiltered by those in the Halls of Power.
All during the Republican PreFsidential Primate Candidate Debates, which they have had the privilege of hosting, the NBC Debate Moderators, while doing the will of their Masters at the Network and the Democratic Party, the self-proclaimed “Broadcast Journalists” allowed the entire country to witness them practice, on live television, their actual jobs: being junkyard dogs and purveyors of propaganda , in service to a political party and ideology, who once stood for the “Working Man and Woman”, but who now stand for the worst kind of state-sponsored fascism, racial division exacerbated by the Rhetoric of Class Warfare, and greed-inspired socialism.
It was refreshing to actually see the Republican National Committee tell them to go take a long walk off of a short pier.
It is time to take our country back.
Until He Comes,
NBC, the Broadcast Network which brought into our homes American Legends Bob Hope, Johnny Carson David Brinkley, and John Chancellor, is now singing the praises of the ideology of Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin.
During NBC’s Thursday Night Coverage of the Sochi Olympics, the insufferable Bob Costas said,
Just in the past year, Putin brokered a deal to allow Syria to avoid a U.S. military strike by giving up its chemical weapons…And helped bring Iran to the negotiating table over its nuclear intentions.
The pro-Stalinist Propaganda Canmpaign of the National Bolshevik Channel continued last night, with these words of narration,
The towering presence, the empire that ascended to affirm a colossal footprint. The revolution that birthed one of modern history’s pivotal experiments. But if politics has long shaped our sense of who they are, it’s passion that endures. As a more reliable right to their collective heart. What they build in aspirations lifted by imagination. What they craft, through the wonder of every last detail. How magical the fusion of sound and movement can be. How much a glass of distilled perfection and an overflowing table can matter. Discover the Russian people through these indelible signatures. Discover what we share with them through the games that open here tonight.
During his nationally syndicated radio program yesterday, Rush Limbaugh said,
Why is everybody surprised that NBC News would laud praise over a Soviet KGB leader, when they are his prisoner for two weeks as the televising network? Besides that, there’s not that much ideological difference anyway. People are apparently upset that Costas referred to Putin as a peacemaker. Folks, that’s right. What do you think liberals think of communists? They’re blood brothers!
The communists were the peacemakers.
We were the problem.
We were the ones stirring the drink. We were the ones stirring things up. We were the threat. Reagan’s finger was on the nuclear button. We were always the problem; Gorbachev was always the solution. So here comes Putin, and he’s a tough guy, and he’s being called a peacemaker around the world. That’s not a stretch. I got people coming to this realization. I guess it may be a bit of a positive. It may not. For me, it’s unsurprising.
As usual, El Rushbo was exactly right.
NBC’s anti-American point-of-view has been extremely obvious for the past several years.
For example, I related the following on June 20, 2011:
Yesterday, on Father’s day 2011, NBC utilized their impeccable taste and creative skills to put together what they perceived as an electrifying, patriotic opening for the United States Open Golf Championship.
The opening featured a reading of the Pledge of Allegiance by a group of children in a classroom.
That would have been enough to stir the patriotic soul of even the most callous observer, right?
It stirred up Americans’ sense of Patriotism, alright. The idiots at NBC edited out the phrase UNDER GOD!
This is what viewers of the golf tournament heard:
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation, with liberty and justice for all.
And once was not enough for NBC. They did it twice!
The kids actually recited the pledge two times. NBC edited the second version to not only leave out UNDER GOD, but ONE NATION, as well.
To say that Americans got stirred up is probably an understatement. Immediately, viewers took to Twitter and internet comment boards, calling NBC “scumbugs” and pledging to boycott the network.
Of course, once they realized that the overwhelming majority of America’s did not appreciate their selective editing, NBC tried to feebly apologize.
By now, some of you may be thinking that NBC leaving God out of the Pledge of Allegiance and their praising of Putin and Communism have nothing to do with one another.
As the late great Ed McMahon, an employee of NBC, would phrase it,
You are NOT correct, sir!
On March 8, 1983, the greatest United States President in my lifetime, Ronald Wilson Reagan, during a speech now known as the “Evil Empire Speech”, which he gave before the National Association of Evangelicals, said,
During my first press conference as president, in answer to a direct question, I pointed out that, as good Marxist-Leninists, the Soviet leaders have openly and publicly declared that the only morality they recognize is that which will further their cause, which is world revolution. I think I should point out I was only quoting Lenin, their guiding spirit, who said in 1920 that they repudiate all morality that proceeds from supernatural ideas–that’s their name for religion–or ideas that are outside class conceptions. Morality is entirely subordinate to the interests of class war. And everything is moral that is necessary for the annihilation of the old exploiting social order and for uniting the proletariat.
Well, I think the refusal of many influential people to accept this elementary fact of Soviet doctrine illustrates an historical reluctance to see totalitarian powers for what they are. We saw this phenomenon in the 1930s. We see it too often today.
…Whittaker Chambers, the man whose own religious conversion made him a witness to one of the terrible traumas of our time, the Hiss-Chambers case, wrote that the crisis of the Western world exists to the degree in which the West is indifferent to God, the degree to which it collaborates in communism’s attempt to make man stand alone without God. And then he said, for Marxism-Leninism is actually the second-oldest faith, first proclaimed in the Garden of Eden with the words of temptation, “Ye shall be as gods.”
The Western world can answer this challenge, he wrote, “but only provided that its faith in God and the freedom He enjoins is as great as communism’s faith in Man.”
I believe we shall rise to the challenge. I believe that communism is another sad, bizarre chapter in human history whose last–last pages even now are being written. I believe this because the source of our strength in the quest for human freedom is not material, but spiritual. And because it knows no limitation, it must terrify and ultimately triumph over those who would enslave their fellow man. For in the words of Isaiah: “He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no…might He increased strength. But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary.”
Unfortunately, even with the demise of the old Soviet Union, the shadow of Communism still looms over Russia.
However, I, like Ronaldus Magnus did, believe that they, as every other unjust and tyrannical unjust government has been, will be overthrown by men and women yearning to be free from oppression’s shackles.
Because God is still in control…whether the communists ruling Russia, and their lackeys at NBC and “the smartest people in the room” choose to believe in Him or not.
I know how all of this ends. I’ve read The Book.
Until He Comes,
