WaPo Runs Kessler Hit Piece on Sen. Tim Scott After He is Chosen to Deliver Republican Response to Biden’s Address

See the source image

FoxNews.com reports that

The timing of Washington Post’s latest “fact-check” on Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., which has been panned by critics, is raising questions.

Scott, who was chosen Thursday to deliver the Republican Party’s response to President Biden’s speech to a joint session of Congress on April 28, was the subject of a lengthy piece by the Post’s fact-checker, Glenn Kessler.

The piece, “Tim Scott often talks about his grandfather and cotton. There’s more to that tale,” examined the “origin stories” of comments the Senator has made about being an ancestor of slaves. Scott has said his grandfather dropped out of elementary school to pick cotton, so the liberal newspaper enlisted its fact-checker to get to the bottom of the claim.

Kessler’s report was published at 3 AM, roughly 12 hours after Scott was tapped to make the GOP rebuttal against the Democratic president.

Critics slammed the fact-check as a “hit piece” against the up-and-coming Republican lawmaker that ultimately did not debunk his past claims about his ancestry.

Fox News sent multiple inquiries to Kessler about the timeline of his reporting and the timing of the published fact-check, which were forwarded to the Post’s public relations team.

The fact-checker publicly shed some light on the timeline of his reporting while responding to a critic on Twitter, who sarcastically exclaimed it was “pure coincidence” that his report came just after the senator’s major announcement.

“Actually, yes,” Kessler wrote. “I first started communicating with [Sen. Scott’s] staff about this on March 26.”

A spokesperson for The Washington Post told Fox News, “The Fact Checker began research on this story several weeks ago. As with all Post reporting, we publish when stories are ready.”

The Post did not immediately respond to Fox News’ inquiry when asking if the fact-check wasn’t “ready” until 3 AM Friday morning.

Regarding the fierce backlash the report received, the paper stood by the fact-check, telling Fox News, “The Fact Checker piece acknowledges that Sen. Tim Scott may not have known his full family history and that historical records regarding the lives of Black Americans are often scant. Nonetheless, our reporting adds information found in official records to Scott’s public remarks and writings about his grandfather. The Fact Checker occasionally delves into the origin stories of politicians, often without reaching a conclusion about their completeness or veracity.”

Scott’s office declined comment, saying he was focused on delivering the GOP response to Biden’s first speech to a joint session of Congress.

For the last several decades, Americans have witnessed the Fourth Estate, America’s Main Stream Media, slowly but surely lose their objectivity to become a Propaganda Arm for the Far Left Democratic Party.

While their reporting became decidedly one-sided, it was not a great danger to the country even though it was a completely different sort of propaganda than when President Franklin Delano Roosevelt used the Main Stream Media to support the American effort in World War II.

Then, the 1980s arrived and along with it a new era in mass communications. Cable News Networks began springing up, increasing the role of the media in our daily lives.

Because of this new role, news organizations increased in their power and their influence in our daily lives. However, with this increased role came the responsibility to fill a 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year, with new stories.

When actual new stories became hard to find, human interest stories began to fill the time, and when they ran out, news organizations decided to act like the National Enquirer and started to make news up.

Also, as the years wore on, America’s newsrooms became bastions of Liberal thought as more and more Conservatives left the business simply due to attrition and being squeezed out by young Liberal reporters who were a product of American universities which had become fountains of anti-American Political Activism.

Of course, these Liberal news reporters were members of the Democratic Party as it moved to the left of the political Spectrum. So, naturally, these reporters started reporting news more and more favorably to their political party of choice while keeping with their own personal political philosophy.

We all remember what happened when Barack Obama appeared on the political scene.

The Main Stream Media treated him as if it his appearance on the political scene was the Second Coming.

The Main Stream Media had finally become political activists instead of just political observers and pundits.

And, that is where we find ourselves today.

The Main Stream Media did everything in its power as political activists, working as the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party, to keep Donald J. Trump from being reelected President of the United States of America.

Since Biden was “appointed” President, they have not even tried to hide the fact that they are nothing but a Propaganda Arm for the Far Left Democratic Party.

This was a blatant attempt by the Washington Post to discredit Senator Scott.

As I wrote yesterday, Biden is a dementia-riddled, doddering old man whom Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democrat Elite are desperately trying to keep in office for as long as they possibly can.

By trying to damage Senator Tim Scott, Glenn Kessler and the Washington Post were trying to cover for Biden’s ineptitude by harming Scott’s credibility.

Unfortunately for them, just as with Biden’s Address, Americans are questioning the timing of their hit piece.

 Propagandists gotta propagandize.

Hannity Tells Levin That the MSM “are State-Run Propaganda TV”…Why He is Exactly Right

Sean-Hannity-on-Levin_2018_07_02_screenshot

FoxNews.com reports that

Fox News host Sean Hannity compared the mainstream media to “state-run propaganda TV” in an interview on “Life, Liberty & Levin” Sunday, striking a serious tone as he detailed for viewers the significance of the upcoming November election.

“The media, the 99 percent… They are the propaganda wing of everything radical, extreme, Democratic, socialist. That’s it,” Hannity, the host of “Hannity” on Fox News Channel and the author of the forthcoming book “Live Free Or Die: America on the Brink,” told host Mark Levin.

“They are state-run propaganda TV.”

Hannity discussed what he described as the dire situation facing the United States should former Vice President Joe Biden defeat President Trump in November’s election, and condemned the media for “lying to the country for four years straight” in an effort to boot Trump from office and prevent him from winning a second term.

“The country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and it has made us great,” Hannity said. “We’re moral people, we’re good people. Freedom has made us a better people. The media is so corrupt. They lied to this country for four straight years. They lied about Russia. They lied about collusion.”

Detailing the Democratic policies that threaten the values and rights enshrined in the American system, Hannity told Levin: “I have a five-alarm fire in my heart, my mind and my soul right now for this country.”

“Whenever you have socialism, radicalism, statism, that [tyranny] is usually what follows thereafter. I think everything that has made this country great, everything that has made us the shining city on the hill, is riding on this election,” he said.

Hannity theorized that socialist policies hold a “psychological appeal” to voters by implicitly promising to “remove all the natural stress in one’s life.”

“[Socialists say], ‘We’ll be taking care of a guaranteed government job, guaranteed government wage. We’re going to guarantee a government vacation. We’re going to guarantee government healthy food. We’re going to guarantee government health care. We’re going to guarantee government retirement,'” he said.

“Well, OK, let’s look at the history of how government in this country alone is now working,” he added. “You know, we see the anarchy. We see the violence. New York City, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles. It’s unfolding right before our very eyes. What do all of those cities have in common? They’ve all been run by liberal Democrats now for decades.”

Sean Hannity is exactly right.

For the last several decades, Americans have witnessed the Fourth Estate, America’s Main Stream Media, slowly but surely lose their objectivity to become a Propaganda Arm for the Democratic Party.

While their reporting became decidedly one-sided, it was not a great danger to the country even though it was a completely different sort of propaganda than when President Franklin Delano Roosevelt used the Main Stream Media to support the American effort in World War II.

Then, the 1980s arrived and along with it a new era in mass communications. Cable News Networks began springing up, increasing the role of the media in our daily lives.

Because of this new role, news organizations increased in their power and their influence in our daily lives. However, with this increased role came the responsibility to fill a 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year, with new stories.

When actual new stories became hard to find, human interest stories began to fill the time, and when they ran out, news organizations decided to act like the National Enquirer and started to make news up.

Also, as the years wore on, America’s newsrooms became bastions of Liberal thought as more and more Conservatives left the business simply due to attrition and being squeezed out by young Liberal reporters who were a product of American universities which had become fountains of anti-American Political Activism.

The Main Stream Media did everything in its power as political activists, working as the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party, to keep Donald J. Trump from being elected President of the United States of America.

Since his election, they have deliberately posted false and scurrilous news stories designed to impede and threaten his presidency.

While Americans remain in danger of losing both our lives and our freedom from a coronavirus which originated in a country which would love for America to be knocked down a peg or two, China, all of the MSM and their masters, the Democratic Party Elite, can think about is trying to use the crisis to damage President Trump, who is doing his job and trying to save American lives.

Additionally, while President Trump continues to work hard for the American people, the Main Stream Media continues to work against all of us…except for the Far Left Democrat Party and their foot soldiers in Antifa and BLM, who are doing their best to destroy major American cities.

And, they wonder why Trump’s Popularity Poll numbers keep rising and nobody trusts them anymore.

Why the New York Times and the Rest of the MSM Keep Failing in their Mission to Take Down President Trump

1533067703896 (3)

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1163425829331841024

FoxNews.com reports that

“The Five” remarked on the controversy at a staff meeting held at The New York Times on new ways to cover President Trump.

“They are not journalists, they are partisan activists,” said Jesse Watters in light of the transcript of a newspaper town-hall meeting published by Slate.
He added that the Times admitted they couldn’t take out Trump, and they aren’t that influential.

“What I’m saying is that our readers and some of our staff cheer us when we take on Donald Trump, but they jeer at us when we take on Joe Biden,” executive editor Dean Banquet says in the transcript.

The report said that the Times is trying to figure out new angles to attack Trump. It also mainly focused on a dustup over a critically drubbed headline about Trump’s remarks in the wake of this month’s deadly mass shootings.

The Times summarized Trump’s comments, in which he denounced hate and white supremacy, with the headline “Trump Urges Unity vs. Racism.” That brought sharp reactions on social media, with some vowing to cancel their subscriptions to the paper and critics alleging it oversimplified a presidential response that did not include specific proposals to curb gun violence.

Some of the biggest critics included Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and several 2020 presidential candidates.

Hours later, the headline was changed to “Assailing Hate But Not Guns,” though that revision was also criticized.

Watters said Americans don’t care about identity politics but functional, utilitarian issues such as the economy and health care.

“Race won’t have the same type of effect as the Russia thing did,” Watters said. “That type of messaging … [is] gonna turn off the various voters” in the heartland who could be swing voters next year.

Juan Williams chimed in that the paper’s future coverage makes sense with the nation’s current pulse, noting “2/3 think he is tearing the country apart.”

He added: “How could you not pay attention to” identity politics?

Greg Gutfeld begged to differ.

“It’s the media creating the narrative. … They are gonna have to keep creating it.” He added that the country is always showing progress for all Americans.

“It’s getting better but they don’t like that story.”

Donald J. Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States of America on November 8, 2016 with 46% of the vote.

Over two and one-half years into the Presidency of Donald J. Trump, the gaping maw that is America’s Political Division is more cavernous as ever.

While the News Organizations like the failing New York Times who inhabit the never-ending metropolitan areas of the East and Left Coasts and the “Beltway” insist, as “some old Lib” named Phil Donahue did in July of 2017 that,

This is the darkest political moment in American History.

Despite what Juan Williams said during “The Five” yesterday. those of us who live in America’s Heartland, between the coasts, continue to support the man whom we elected to the most powerful office in the Free World…because he is not a politician.

Liberals who seem to spend their entire day on Social Media posting fake news stories, pulling “facts” out of their hindquarters such as the erroneous claims that President Trump is a racist, and posting anything and everything that they can, in order to attempt to remove President Trump from office, are probably in diabetic shock from consuming too many Cheetos and donuts in their Mom’s basement, as they attempt to comprehend what I am writing.

Here’s the deal, Snowflakes…

None of these fake news stories, Democrat-heavy polls, photoshopped pictures, “Antifa”, and stupid Occupy Democrat Memes on Facebook are making any difference to average Americans.

The Democrats and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, as a result of their own regional bias toward the major metropolitan areas on the East and Left Coasts, which has been obvious to average Americans for the last several decades, continue through their sheer arrogance and hatred for the traditional American Way of Life, to distance themselves from the people whom they continue to claim that they “love”…Average Working Class Americans.

Yet still, they expect us to believe the Fake News which they are desperately trying to distribute in a vain attempt get Trump out of office, and which Liberal Trolls are posting on Social Media ad nauseam, so that they and the rest of the “useful idiots”, in their shared madness, can regain the White House, even though all of their Primary Candidates do not stand a chance against President Donald J. Trump..

Americans do not care what Main Stream Media “journalists” such as those employed by the failing New York Times think.

To put it mildly and in Marital Terms, which even the Liberal Trolls who inhabit President Trump’s Twitter Account can understand, Average Working Class Americans and the Democratic Party are no longer “evenly yoked”.

The Democrats became the party of the “Upper Crust” and Special Interest Groups, who, as the failing New York times has so clearly and unwittingly illuminated in the last several years, look down their noses at Americans who live here in “Flyover Country”.

The Democrats assumed, after reading their own press clippings, that all Americans wanted in 2016 and somehow, still want, the Progressive/Marxist Political Ideology and style of governance which Barack Hussein Obama practiced during his time as President.

Well, we all know what assuming does, don’t we, Snowflakes?

The American People overthrew the “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we had suffered under for 8 interminable years on November 8th, 2016.

The Oxford Dictionaries define the word “mandate” as

the authority to carry out a policy or course of action, regarded as given by the electorate to a candidate or party that is victorious in an election.

Guess what, Democratic Elite, George Soros, Barack Hussein Obama, Facebook and Internet Trolls, Hollywood Celebrities, and the rest of you still throwing a National Temper Tantrum like the failing New York Times and the rest of the Main Stream Media?

Trump won! Therefore, he does have a mandate, which includes building a wall on our Southern Border, regardless what your highly inaccurate Democrat sample-heavy polls show. If you polls were accurate, Hillary Clinton would be our nation’s President (shudder).

And, average Americans, the “Deplorables” between the coasts whom Democrats and the MSM “journalists” like The failing New York Times continue to insult and ridicule on a daily basis, still support and appreciate president Donald J. Trump.

Because it is evident by what he has accomplished since he took office that President Donald J. Trump is working hard to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

Illegitimi non carborundum, Mr. President.

“2/3”, my hindquarters, Juan Williams.

CNN, MSNBC Ratings in Freefall as Americans Tune Out the Democrats and Their Propaganda Arm

the_rachel_maddow_show_-_09_00_27_pm

John Nolte reports for Breitbart.com that

The news just keeps getting worse and worse for the far-left CNN, which suffered a 16 percent primetime ratings collapse last month.

The embattled CNN, which always lands in far-last place and axed more than 100 jobs already this year, had about as bad of a ratings month as is possible in May.

Its primetime hours were only able to average a measly 761,000 viewers, while the fake news outlet’s total day viewers dove nine percent (compared to this same month last year) to just 559,000 viewers.

For comparison purposes, Fox News earned three times as many primetime viewers (2.34 million) and more than twice as many total day viewers (1.34 million). What’s more, when compared to this same month last year, Fox lost none of its primetime viewers and only four percent of its total day viewers.

The most astounding thing, though, is that CNN’s ratings are already so low, it seems impossible they could dive any lower — and yet, they always do.

Do you have any idea just how low 761,000 primetime viewers is…?

How does a nationally known brand like CNN, a brand that is decades old, only manage to attract 761,000 viewers throughout a gonzo news month in a country of over 300 million?

But this is just how far over the cliff CNN has gone… CNN has lost almost all of its viewers, all of its moral authority, and every bit of trust it once had. Over the past six years, as soon as Jeff Zucker took over, CNN got every major national story exactly wrong, including…

Hispanic George Zimmerman: The White Racist Killer
Hands Up, Don’t Shoot
Trump Can’t Win
Brett Kavanaugh: Serial Rapist
The KKKids from KKKovington High School
Trump Colluded with Russia

And in every one of those cases, CNN got it deliberately wrong because CNN is nothing less than a hysterical propaganda outlet, a fire hose of hate, violence, and lies…

Things are so bad at CNN that even though it is only competing with two other cable news networks, the fake news outlet’s top-rated program, Cuomo Prime Time, crash-landed in 25th place averaging only 938,000 viewers.

That’s right, the top 24 slots are all filled with shows from Fox News and MSNBC — and Fox holds seven of the top ten.

The insufferable Jake Tapper, the guy Zucker put at 4 p.m. hoping he’d act as a primetime anchor, as a lead-in for the rest of the night, landed in a pathetic 36th place with only 706,000 average viewers, which is 55,000 fewer viewers than CNN’s primetime average.

Among CNN shows, Tapper used to regularly place in the top three as far as total viewers. Now he’s in sixth place among his fake news colleagues.

CNN’s flagship morning show, New Day, is a laughingstock with just 485,000 average viewers.

How big of a fail is that?

Well, New Day is losing by about 80,000 viewers to Fox & Friends First, which airs at — get this — 4 a.m.

Nolte also reports that

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow has lost 500,000 viewers and suffered her worst ratings month since Trump became president, reports Fox News.

During the first quarter of 2019, prior to the release of the Mueller Report (which debunked the media’s Russia Collusion Hoax and proved Trump did not obstruct justice),

Maddow averaged 3.1 million nightly viewers. Last month, after the release of the Mueller Report (which debunked the media’s Russia Collusion Hoax and proved Trump did not obstruct justice), she averaged only 2.6 million viewers.

That’s a loss of a half-million viewers.

I was going to ask you why this is happening, gentle readers, but you already know why.

CNN and MSN, like the rest of the Main Stream Media long ago abandoned any pretense of objectivity in order to become the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party.

Now that the Democratic Party has become nothing but a Far Left, Marxism-embracing, American-hating, special interest groups butt-kissing bunch of self-absorbed ungrateful American-haters, they have lost all credibility with average Americans.

So, why don’t clowns like Maddow, Tapper, and Acosta, their co-workers at the Propaganda Machines known as CNN and MSNBC and their masters, the Democratic Party, understand that attacking President Trump and Traditional American Values, such as Patriotism 24 hours a day, 7 days a week is why they continue to lose viewers and voters?

Simple. They are blinded by their egotistical rage.

In American Politics, as far as anybody can remember, that is still alive and kicking, you have had those of a political ideology who were Pro-American and Gung Ho about all the things that this country stands for. And, on the other side, you had those of a political ideology who criticized everything that America stood for, and still stands for, to this day.

From those who believed that Communism would be great for America back in the 1950s, to those in the 1960’s, who wanted to “tune in, turn on, and drop out”, and spit on our returning Servicemen, to those of the 1970s who were naive pacifists like their President, Jimmy Carter, to those in the 1980s, who were part of the “Me Generation”, to those whom we call “Progressives” (a misnomer) or “Modern Liberals” in our present generation, including Nancy Pelosi, Chuck “U” Schumer, Jerry Nadler, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and Former (Thank God) President Barack Hussein Obama and all of his minions, there has always been a minority segment of American Society, who despise everything that this land, which was given us by the Almighty and was fought for and died for by those before us, stands for, while they reap all the benefits of America the Beautiful.

Through the last several decades, the Democratic Party, once the party of the “Middle Class Working American” has devolved into the political party of special interest groups and has become the champion and practitioner of the “Tyranny of the Minority”.

What we have heah is failure to communicate. – Strother Martin, “Cool Hand Luke”.

While spending time on Facebook Political Pages, which I really should cut down on, as it tends to increase my blood pressure to Mt. Vesuvius Levels, I continuously encounter individuals who echo the sentiments of the Far Left self-proclaimed geniuses who cost the Democratic Party the Presidency and who believe that anybody who works hard for a living, believes in God and Country, and supports President Trump, is a Jingoistic imbecile.

The same intolerant idiots who have decided that they do not need to hire “straight white males”.

By the way, according to the dictionary, Jingoism is an extreme chauvinism or nationalism marked especially by a belligerent foreign policy.

In other words, being guilty of “patriotism”, i.e., believing that America is the greatest country on the face of God’s Green Earth and believing in American Exceptionalism.

During the 8 long years of the Obama Presidency,  children and young adults attending American Institutes of Learning from kindergarten to college campuses were taught by Liberal teachers and professors that America was “just another country” and that being a patriot was to somehow be close-minded, ignorant, and bigoted, not necessarily in that order.

Where the exceptionalism of America lies…is not in the Halls of Power…nor in the Halls of Academia. But, rather in the courage and spirit of the average American. A courage and spirit, which our history proves, has driven American Citizens to build a nation, which is indeed exceptional among all others.

And, since we “straight white males” are a very big voting bloc, “The Smartest People in the Room”, those in charge of CNN and MSNBC, and the brain-trust of the Democratic Party, including their Radical Hispanic Chairman, Tom Perez, are sentencing themselves to failure for the next several national elections….no matter how much fake news and propaganda idiots like Rachel Maddow and Jim Acosta and the rest of the Main Stream Media attempt to disseminate.

Hey! I just thought of something.

Being a Christian American Conservative and a Son of the South, not to mention a “straight white male”, I don’t stand a snowball’s chance in July of getting hired by CNN, MSNBC, and the DNC, anyway.

Which is a good thing.

To paraphrase Lynyrd Skynyrd,

Southern man don’t need them around anyhow.

Judging by the dwindling viewership of CNN and MSNBC and the horrible popularity numbers of the Democratically-led Congress, the rest of America’s Heartland doesn’t, either.

MAGA!

Trump Wants Courts to Test NBC and Saturday Night Live for Being “Democrat Spin Machines”…Is He Right?

trump_snl

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…

Per TMZ.com...

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.

Embarrassing Desperation: CNN Calls For the Banning of the Term “FAKE NEWS”.

flat,800x800,075,f

President Donald J. Trump has made the Media look tremendously naïve and stupid on several occasions, in scenes reminiscent of Lucy Van Pelt promising to hold the football for Charlie Brown to kick, only to pull it away at the last minute, leaving a helpless Charlie Brown to wipe out, tumbling head over heels.

Between Trump’s playing them like Charlie Daniels playing a fiddle and average Americans becoming their own reporters through the use of Social Media, “professional journalists” have watched their influence over the daily lives of Americans dwindle and diminish right before their very eyes.

The Main Stream Media are no longer in control of the dissemination of the news…and they know it.

Case in point:

FoxNews.com reports that

CNN wants to ban the term “fake news?”

In an opinion piece on the cable news network’s website Sunday, writers Hossein Derakhshan and Claire Wardle called for scrapping the term President Trump has made synonymous with CNN. The duo wrote that use of the term “fake news” is “not only self-defeating, it oversimplifies a very complex problem” and it devalues the expression that has “become meaningless” over the past year.

The phrase is now “used to describe any piece of information that someone else didn’t like” and has been “has become weaponized by politician,” Derakhshan and Wardle wrote, adding the term should be used when referring to clearly false content such as the viral photo of a shark swimming up a Texas highway during Hurricane Harvey (spoiler alert: the photo wasn’t real).

Derakhshan and Wardle recently co-authored a report, “Information Disorder,” which was commissioned by the Council of Europe. They claim the problem exists all over the world, but most Americans likely associate “fake news” with CNN, thanks to President Trump’s relentless branding.

CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker has implemented an anti-Trump programming strategy at the network that was once known for Ted Turner’s bare bones “just-the-facts” approach to journalism. As a result, Trump refers to CNN as “fake news” on a regular basis and mocked the network on Twitter as recently as Monday.

Wardle recently appeared on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” where she told host Brian Stelter the term is “being used as a weapon” against the news industry and said Americans have to be “much more careful” about the language that is used to describe content.

Derakhshan and Wardle focus on three different terms that can be used to replace “fake news,” which are “misinformation,” “disinformation” and “malinformation.,” claiming each one can be a replacement in various situations. The duo blames social media for adding “an entirely new dimension to the phenomenon” of fake news, but many media watchdogs would simply blame CNN and how it covers the White House.

“Wardle may not like the term, but Stelter’s November 2016 segment is just one of so many genuine textbook examples of ‘fake news’ the network has shamelessly promoted,” Newsbusters contributing editor Tom Blumer wrote. “Establishment press outlets have spent the past year disseminating fake news while working feverishly, through their bogus and highly selective ‘fact-checkers,’ to discredit legitimate center-right voices.”

CNN Senior White House Correspondent Jim Acosta has emerged as one of the faces of anti-Trump liberal media, regularly interrupting press briefings with grandstanding and providing personal opinions about the administration on a consistent basis. During a press conference earlier this year, Trump literally pointed at Acosta and said, “You’re fake news.”

The network’s primetime programming is littered with large panel discussions, often featuring numerous liberal analysts against a single quasi-Trump supporter. CNN also airs documentary-style specials aimed to criticize Trump and has several anchors, such as Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon, which have become household names simply for attacking the president on a regular basis.

Trump recently suggested that Americans should have a contest between ABC, NBC, CBS and CNN to determine which news organization is the most “dishonest,” with the winner receiving a “fake news trophy.”

Trump took to Twitter earlier this month to slam Zucker’s network, saying he was “forced to watch” it while on an overseas trip to Asia and the experience reminded him why he dislikes the content with such passion.

“While in the Philippines I was forced to watch @CNN, which I have not done in months, and again realized how bad, and FAKE, it is,” Trump wrote. “Loser!”

It wasn’t clear who Trump was referring to when he ended his tweet with “loser,” but it shouldn’t be a tough case to crack. Zucker’s anti-Trump game plan has helped both TV ratings and digital traffic at the liberal CNN, but it’s not the first time Trump has enhanced Zucker’s livelihood.

He was in charge of NBC when Trump’s “The Apprentice” became a hit for the network. At one point, when NBC’s prime time lineup was flailing, “The Apprentice” was NBC’s most successful show and Trump its biggest star. Meanwhile, Trump claims he’s helped Zucker’s career (something Zucker gently refutes) and the president has been absolutely clear that he resents CNN’s constant attacks on him.

The CNN editorial that calls for a ban on the term “fake news” doesn’t mention Trump by name, but it will be interesting to see if the president responds. Perhaps Trump will remind Americans that CNN recently mislead viewers by editing a video to make it appear that he botched an old tradition of feeding carp at a Koi pond in Tokyo — something that surely would have secured the “fake news trophy.”

 

A few months back, the Main Stream Media were desperately trying to trap the President of the United States of America into falling into a chorus line performing the same ol’ Washington Two-Step that Professional Politicians have performed during press conferences for decades, dancing around questions and saying the things that they think that they should say, in order to to keep the “Watchdogs” of the Press from ripping them a new one by portraying them as being stupid or a tyrant.

President Trump finally got tired of the MSM’s relentless attacks, culminating in FAKE NEWS STORIES, and gave them a dressing down which they are still whining about.

America’s Main Stream Media realized shortly after the American People elected Donald J. Trump as our 45th President that in order to  have access to President Trump and to be able to file news reports covering the actions that he is going to take as President, they are going to have to accurately report what actually happens.

So, they decided instead, to write fictional stories and attempt to give them believability and gravitas by claiming to have received the information for their stories from “anonymous sources”.

At the rate that these stories have been and continue to be debunked, most Americans have accurately surmised that the MSM’s “anonymous sources” are the voices inside their own over-sized heads.

The Main Stream Media has gotten so desperate to bring down the juggernaut that is President Donald J. Trump that that they have adopted the strategy of publishing unsubstantiated lie after unsubstantiated lie in order to assuage their own hurt feelings after their failure to aid lousy Democratic Candidate Hillary Clinton in her quest to become the 45th President of the United States of America.

The depth of their grief and the blind rage of their ensuing temper tantrum has, without a doubt, wiped out any vestiges of journalistic integrity that remained after decades of being the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party.

President Trump will never be able to please the Main Stream Media.

Nor should he have to.

The Presidency of the United States of America is the most important leadership position on the Face of God’s Green Earth.

The Main Stream Media knows that.

However, they cannot cope with the fact that Americans elected Donald J. Trump to serve in that position.

Back in May, Foxnews.com reported that

Nearly two-thirds of Americans think the mainstream press is full of “fake news,” according to the latest Harvard-Harris poll.

65 percent of voters believe there is a significant amount of fake news in the mainstream media, and the sentiment is held by a majority of voters across the ideological spectrum.

80 percent of Republicans, 60 percent of independents and 53 percent of Democrats reflected this distrust of the media.

84 percent of voters said it is hard to know what news to believe online.

Their non-stop Pro-“Alt-Left” Stance since the 2016 Presidential Election has shown the whole country whose side they are on.

For those of us who live in the Heartland, and especially in the South, they have shown themselves to be lower than the stuff you find in a cow pasture which leads to an outhouse.

And, if they choose to keep on peddling it, they had better learn how to take it from the President of the United States of America.

Because President Donald J. Trump was elected by Americans who were tired of Professional Politicians performing the Washington Two-Step.

And, he remains more popular than the MSM..no matter what their Democrat-heavy polls say.

“Digging Up Bones”: Trump, Free Speech, and “Concern” in the Name of Tyranny

simple-ballot-600-li

THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated. Britain, with an army to enforce her tyranny, has declared that she has a right (not only to TAX) but “to BIND us in ALL CASES WHATSOEVER,” and if being bound in that manner, is not slavery, then is there not such a thing as slavery upon earth. Even the expression is impious; for so unlimited a power can belong only to God. – Thomas Paine, “The Crisis”, December 23, 1776

This morning, as I was watching the local CBS Affiliate, which is owned by the company that owns the Chicago Tribune, I had to turn the sound off as they were reporting about yesterday’s events on the Presidential Campaign Trail.

It’s not that I have an aversion to reality.

Au contraire, mon frere.

Reality fascinates me.

It’s the unbridled bias-driven propaganda being foisted upon us by the Main Stream Media that makes me want to “blow chunks”.

When our Founding Fathers sat down to provide form and substance to the laws and procedures for governing this new country, which they had fought and won a bloody war over, by pledging their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, they were very aware of the price of tyranny.

They determined that this new nation would be a Constitutional Republic, having had their fill of monarchies.

In order to ensure that no leader of this new nation would go mad with power, and become a tyrannical despot, our Founders set up a System of Checks and Balances, overseen by Three Branches of Government: the Legislative, the Executive, and the Judicial, with each branch having a distinct and LIMITED  role.

The situation, which we as a nation, find ourselves in today, is one which our Founding Fathers sought valiantly to avoid.

Thanks to an Imperious Presidency, we are suffering under a “Tyranny of the Minority”.

This minority is not based on color, rather, it is one based on political ideology and self-interest.

If this  minority, including the Main Stream Media, gets their wish, and the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, is elected President of our country, this tyranny will not only continue, it will EXPAND.

As the past several years have showed, this minority, buoyed by money from their “sponsors”, including the Halls of Power in Washington, DC, will shut down anyone who threatens “what they’ve got” by ANY MEANS NECESSARY, including political devices, such as heavily-weighted push polls and beliefs, which we, as a country, have gone to war against in the past.

My late father was one of thousands of brave young American men, who landed on the beaches of Normandy , France on June 6, 1944, in the military operation which broke the backs of the Nazis, leading to the end of World War II,  now known as D-Day.

World War II was a war against Fascism.

What is Fascism? Per merriam-webster.com, it is a

political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.

Ladies and gentlemen, I firmly believe that America is now fighting a new war against fascism.

It’s not a war that is being fought fought with guns and bullets, But instead with state referendums, Congressional votes, Executive Orders, judicial activism, and FAR Left-sponsored and organized Political Activists.

And, it’s not our Brightest and Best who are dying on this field of battle, but rather, it is our Constitutional Freedoms which are dying an ignoble death, pierced by the arrows of socialism and political correctness.

By now, there’s some out there in the audience saying, “Oh Lord, the crazy old cracker’s overreacting again.”

No, Skippy, I’m not.

If you try to talk to a Liberal about this New Fascism, they will deny that there is any fascism going on at all. In fact, they will tell you that this is “the will of the people” and they will site Democratically-stacked push polls in order to back their opinion up.

When you ask Liberals if , for example, “homosexual marriage” is the “will of the people”, why did voters in the overwhelming majority of states, including California, vote against it? And, if there is “no fascism”, what do you call the fact that 2% of the population had to resort to using activist judges to overturn the actual will of the people in order to get their way, in their attempt to redefine a word that has meant the same thing since time immemorial?

In response, you will usually see their eyes glaze over, like a deer in the headlights, or experience a dramatic pause in posting, if you are on the Internet.

Liberals can not legitimately defend the suppression of the First Amendment Rights of Christian Americans.

Fascism, in any form, remains indefensible, even, when a spineless Supreme Court kicks the can down the road.

The Godfather of Conservative Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh, once said the following,

You know as well as I do that people are scared to death to tell you what they really think. The left has politicized everything — everything — to the point that people are afraid to go against what they know to be political correctness, which is nothing more than liberal fascism, nothing more than censorship.

When Barack Hussein Obama assumed the position of President of the United States, the Far Left became empowered. Obama’s handlers saw the opportunity to “radically change” America into a Democratic Socialist Republic. You know, the kind of government that is currently failing over in Europe.

Every piece of legislation that Barack Hussein Obama has tried to get passed, has been designed to either overtly or covertly limit our freedom.

From the stimulus bill on through the latest changes to Obamacare by Executive Order, every single piece of legislation has been designed to further the Far Left’s agenda.

Remember when Obama was campaigning so hard to get the Affordable Health Care Act passed?

He always used people as props for his speeches, whether it was just normal people or people dressed in white coats like doctors.

When he was trying to get gun control passed, he used the parents from the Newtown Massacre in Connecticut as human props to try to get his repressive agenda passed.

The use of human props is an old propaganda trick, which was used by Joseph Goebbels to make his boss, Adolf Hitler, seem like a man of the people who really cared about the German citizenry.

The use of propaganda to further the aims of fascist governments is an old and effective method of camouflaging fascism, which Obama’s handlers realize all too well.

In addition to the use of human props during a speech, another strategy used in a propaganda campaign is to select an enemy and target them with the aid of a sympathetic press behind you.

During Hitler’s rise to power, the German Press demonized European Jews, betraying them as evil and money grubbing…painting them as being different from normal German citizens. It was this classification of the European Jews as the enemy that almost led to the extinction of them in that horrible attempted genocide, known as the Holocaust.

And, now, those on the Far Left of the Political Spectrum, and their unwitting dupes, spurred on by their own political ambition and ideology, are deliberately, and, with malice of forethought, making Donald J. Trump, the object of their attempts to limit our Constitutional Freedom, through a calculated and, at times, manic, demonization of him, in a desperate attempt to  convince average Americans that Hillary Clinton is not whom we have all witnessed her to be.

“With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator.” – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Senate Hearings on Benghazi, January 22, 2013

Unfortunately for Hillary and her enablers on both sides of the Political Aisle, including House Speaker Paul Ryan (schmuck),  Trump is fighting back, which is his Constitutional Right, as an American Citizen.

And, average Americans are still supporting him, no matter what heavily-Democrat-weighted push polls may claim.

If you don’t believe me…just look at the difference in attendance between Trump’s Campaign Rallies and those of Clinton.

The leader of the 1918 Russian Revolution, which led to the overthrow of the Czar and the installation of a Communist Government, Vladimir Lenin, once said,

It is true that liberty is precious; so precious that it must be carefully rationed. 

Through the actions of these “New Facists”, as demonstrated so vividly during the Trump Campaign Rallies which they have tried to violently interrupt and the incessant propaganda and bold-faced lies being spewed forth daily by the Main Stream Media , our American Liberty, especially our Constitutional Right of Freedom of Speech, is now being rationed, in favor of “Democratic Socialism” and the Democratic Party’s Presidential Candidate, Hillary Clinton,  who is championing that cause.

If you listen to these New Fascists and their unwitting dupes, you will be reminded of the words of Princess Padme, from the movie, “Star Wars VI: The Return of the Jedi”…

So this is how liberty dies… with thunderous applause.

As Americans, we can not and must not allow that to happen.

Vote accordingly.

Hillary to Hire Internet Trolls to Attack Bernie Supporters. Get Your Popcorn Here.

internet-trollIf you don’t believe that the Clinton Campaign is concerned about the unexpected success of the Presidential Campaign of Bernie Sanders, check this out:

Breitbart.com reports that

Correct the Record, a pro-Hillary Clinton political action committee (PAC), is spending over $1 million on online trolls in order to ‘correct’ Bernie Sanders supporters on social media sites.

The PAC this week launched an initiative called “Barrier Breakers 2016,” which is composed of a “task force” that will debate ‘Bernie Bros,’ presumably supporters of the Senator Sanders’s campaign, as referred to by their official press release.

According to Correct the Record, the task force will “combat online political harassment,” boasting that it has already “addressed more than 5,000 individuals who have personally attacked Secretary Clinton on Twitter.”

“The task force will provide a presence and space online where Clinton supporters can organize and engage with one another and are able to obtain graphics, videos, gifs, and messaging to use in their own social spaces,” the group states.

“Additionally, the Barrier Breakers 2016 task force hopes to embrace the creativity of Hillary Clinton’s supporters by sharing their efforts and content with other groups,” it continues.

“Barrier Breakers 2016 is focused on pushing out positive content to Hillary supporters online to counter negative attacks and false narratives,” Correct the Record’s communications director, Elizabeth Shappell, told The Daily Beast. “The expanded task force was established in anticipation of the general election.”

According to Campaign Legal Center lawyer Paul Ryan, Correct the Record is “creating new ways to undermine campaign regulation.” However, it is understood the Federal Electoral Commission will not be investigating the matter.

Those of us who are Political Junkies, who hang out on the Social Media, have witnessed the phenomenon known as “Paid Internet Trolls”, since the Presidency of George W. Bush.

It’s amazing how websites are a reflection of our Political Reality.

Every website and Facebook Page, where there is political discussion, unless they are just Pro-one-way-or-the-other, puts out a plea for civil discourse in the discussions that happen between commenters on their site.

Unfortunately, though, that never seems to happen. And, why is that?

If you are an Internet – Surfing Political Junkie like me, at some time or another, you have no doubt run into an aggravating, bitter, whiney individual, commonly referred to as an “Internet Troll”.

In America, most Internet Trolls belong to the Liberal Political Ideology (whether they admit it, or not).

And, as the above article proves, a lot of them are getting paid for eating Cheetos and commenting on Political Facebook Pages and Websites all day.

In our American Culture today, the art of civil discourse has degenerated into a shouting match. This wouldn’t be so bad, if both sides had the right to shout equally as loud as the other side.

The problem is, for some reason, Conservatives are expected to mind our manners, be meek and mild, and follow the Marquis of Queensberry rules, while Liberals, libertarians, and self-identified “Moderates” (Liberals who won’t admit to being one) call us everything but a child of God.

However, this doesn’t just happen on the Internet, this happens in the Real World as well… and it all starts with the President of the United States and trickles down from there.

Before Obama became President, in a private fund raiser in Pennsylvania, he referred to us American Conservatives as bitter clingers, clinging to our guns and Bibles. Then, the Main Stream Media, totally in love with their new messiah, told everyone who would listen, that if you did not vote for Barack Hussein Obama as President, you are a racist.

When Conservatives started to dig up historical facts about Obama, we are told by those whom I identified to sit down, shut up, and know “our role” or “stay in our lane”.

After Obama was elected, and the country started to find out just exactly who he was, Conservatives started to speak out again. Again, we were told to sit down, shut up, and know our “role”(stay in our lane).

Finally, we had enough and began a groundswell, which led to the formation of what has become known as the Tea Party.

The rise of the Tea Party movement and America’s return to Conservatism, which resulted in the political massacre known as the 2010 Midterm Elections, was such a surprise to them. In their self-imposed isolation, they actually thought that the America people wanted them to continue their deal-making, soul-selling, business-as-usual politics.

They were in shock when American Conservatives stood up on their hind legs and gave the House of Representatives back to the Republican Party.

And, you know what happened afterwards?

The Liberal Establishment and their minions, the Internet Trolls, began a relentless Social Media Campaign designed to make American Conservatives, once again, the “Silent Majority”, calling us “racists” for speaking the truth about Barack Hussein Obama, and telling us, once again, to sit down, shut up, know our “role”/”stay in our lane”.

Then, after the overwhelming Political Massacre that transpired on November 6, 2014, with Republicans gaining control of both Houses of Congress, thanks, once again, to the Conservative Base, and, the national resentment of the growing Liberal use of the Rhetoric of Class and Racial Warfare, spurred on by their Petulant President, the Internet Trolls started whining louder than the Civil Defense Siren at Noon on Saturday.

And now, on the cusp of the Presidency of Donald J. Trump, the reformation of the Republican Party, and the  apparent abject failure of the Presidential Campaign of Hillary Clinton, Internet Trolls are poised to once again attempt to shut down Free Speech and reshape the very fabric of reality.

Are you beginning to see a pattern, boys and girls?

Liberal Trolls and their activity on the Internet are simply an extension of our culture at large.

Liberalism has always been a failed political ideology. It has never been embraced by the majority of Americans.

So, in order for Liberals to “get their way”, since their ideas are never excepted by the majority of Americans, they must resort to the facilitation of Culture Change through intimidation, rule by fiat, and via Executive Orders, if they have a President in the White House, who will do their bidding…which has certainly been the case since January 21, 2009.

In other words, Liberal Activists, especially Internet Trolls, are dirty, manipulative, little cowards, who overestimate their power….and, their own intelligence…as this “Inter-Party War” between Clinton and Sanders will clearly demonstrate.

Each side will expect the other to acquiesce and surrender to their “superior intellect” and unceasing Internet insults and propaganda.

Normally, Liberal Democrats, including the “Trolling” variety, both paid and unpaid, attack average Conservative Americans, expecting us to behave like a dog who has been whipped too much, go cower in a corner and allow them to insult and walk all over us in our online “discussions”.

Their expectation of Conservative Behavior is predicated on the fact that they know that we were raised right, usually by two parents, and that the majority of us are Christians, and are reluctant to have an out-of-body experience on an Internet Chat Board or Political Facebook Page, telling them where to go and the temperature when they get there.

Therefore, Liberal Democrats feel as if they can take advantage of the good nature of American Conservatives, and walk all over us.

They have found out differently over the past several years, as they frequently get their hindquarters handed to them.

In the scenario described by article at the beginning of this post, it will be Liberal insulting Liberal, in a scene reminiscent of two Professional Wresting “Heels” beating the snot out of each other.

Grab your popcorn, boys and girls.

This should be fun to watch.

The Boston Globe Jumps the Wrong Shark: Devotes Sunday Edition to Fictional Stories Attacking Trump

Oval-Office-Trump-ArtOfTheDealIn the vernacular of American Business, the term “shark” is applied to a successful businessman, who has made his fortune by being both business-savvy and aggressive.

This morning, the Main Stream Media has finally “jumped the shark”, both figuratively and literally, as The Boston Globe has devoted their Sunday Edition to a last ditch effort to attempt to stop Donald J. Trump from becoming the next President of the United States of America.

First, they have written the following editorial:

Donald J. Trump’s vision for the future of our nation is as deeply disturbing as it is profoundly un-American.

It is easy to find historical antecedents. The rise of demagogic strongmen is an all too common phenomenon on our small planet. And what marks each of those dark episodes is a failure to fathom where a leader’s vision leads, to carry rhetoric to its logical conclusion. The satirical front page of this section attempts to do just that, to envision what America looks like with Trump in the White House.

It is an exercise in taking a man at his word. And his vision of America promises to be as appalling in real life as it is in black and white on the page. It is a vision that demands an active and engaged opposition. It requires an opposition as focused on denying Trump the White House as the candidate is flippant and reckless about securing it.

After Wisconsin, the odds have shrunk that Trump will arrive in Cleveland with the requisite 1,237 delegates needed to win the nomination outright. Yet if he’s denied that nomination for falling short of the required delegates, Trump has warned, “You’d have riots. I think you’d have riots.” Indeed, who knows what Trump’s fervent backers are capable of if emboldened by the defeat of their strongman at the hands of the hated party elite.

But the rules are the rules — and if no candidate reaches that magic number, the job of choosing a nominee falls to those on the convention floor.

That’s not a pretty picture. But then nothing about the billionaire real estate developer’s quest for the nation’s highest office has been pretty. He winks and nods at political violence at his rallies. He says he wants to “open up” libel laws to punish critics in the news media and calls them “scum.” He promised to shut out an entire class of immigrants and visitors to the United States on the sole basis of their religion.

The toxic mix of violent intimidation, hostility to criticism, and explicit scapegoating of minorities shows a political movement is taking hold in America. If Trump were a politician running such a campaign in a foreign country right now, the US State Department would probably be condemning him.

Realizing that the party faces a double bind, a few conservatives have been clear-eyed enough to see the need for a plausible, honorable alternative that could emerge from the likely contested convention. Names like Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney have come up. If no candidate gets a majority on the convention’s first ballot, such a nomination might be theoretically possible.

This would have no modern precedent: Ordinarily, parties put aside their differences after primaries and rally to the front-runner because they share basic common goals and values. In any other election cycle, anti-Trump Republicans would just look like sore losers. But Trump lacks those common values — not just the values of Republicans but, it becomes clearer every day, those of Democrats.

House Speaker Ryan spoke to the possible long-term damage with which the party is flirting. “Leaders with different visions and ideas have come and gone; parties have risen and fallen; majorities and White Houses won and lost,” he said. “But the way we govern endures: through debate, not disorder.” The problem is that Trump has already crossed lines that a politician with a sincere commitment to democratic norms must never cross.

At some point, after the election, Republicans will also need to ask themselves some tough questions about how their actions and inactions made the party vulnerable to Trump. After all, a candidate spewing anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim, authoritarian rhetoric didn’t come out of nowhere; the Tea Party has been strong enough long enough that someone like him shouldn’t be a surprise. Chasing short-term political gains, the GOP missed a lot of chances to fight the hateful currents that now threaten to overwhelm it.

For now, Republicans ought to focus on doing the right thing: putting up every legitimate roadblock to Trump that they can. Unexpectedly, a key moment in American democracy has snuck up on the GOP. When he denounced Trump, Romney said he wanted to be able to say he’d fought the good fight against a demagogue. That’s the test other Republicans may want to consider.

Action doesn’t mean political chicanery or subterfuge. It doesn’t mean settling for an equally extreme — and perhaps more dangerous — nominee in Ted Cruz. If the party can muster the courage to reject its first-place finisher, rejecting the runner-up should be even easier.

The Republican Party’s standard deserves to be hoisted by an honorable and decent man, like Romney or Ryan, elected on the convention floor. It is better to lose with principle than to accept a dangerous deal from a demagogue.

Next, they have gone on to write a series of satirical articles, attempting to damage Trump by predicting his actions, once he becomes president, wrapping them all in a cheese cloth of didactic New England Snottiness, hoping that they will teach us poor simpletons, out here in “Flyover Country”, where we “marry our cousins”, how ignorant we all are, for even thinking about electing Trump as the Republican Nominee and, eventually, the next President of the United States of America.

To the Publisher and the Editorial Board of the Boston Globe:

As the popular meme, featuring Spanky of the Little Rascals pointing his finger at Barack Hussein Obama, so eloquently states,

If stupid could fly, you’d be a jet!

Quite frankly…no one asked you for your opinion.

According to a Gallup Poll, published on January 16th of this year, Conservatives are still the leading Political Ideology in America at 37%, followed closely by “self-described” Moderates at 35%. Liberals remain the Minority Political Ideology in America, comprising only 24% of our population.

That is why I call the actions of these insufferable idiots, like the ones on full display yesterday, “The Tyranny of the Minority”.

So, anyway, here we are…with a bunch of paid and unpaid “useful idiots” telling all of us normal Americans, living out here in the Heartland, how stupid and intolerant we are, for actually holding to Traditional American Values.

If you will look at the last Electoral Map of the contiguous United States, the scope of the Red Area, marking Conservative-voting populations, compared to the Blue Area, denoting Liberal-voting Populations, is like comparing the popularity of the late Merle Haggard to that of the Dixie Chicks.

Same audience, too…but, I digress…

If you will notice in their editorial, the Globe, desperately wants the Washingtonian Status Quo to continue, citing “being reasonable”, as their reason for pushing for a Republican Establishment Candidate, like Paul Ryan or Mitt Romney, to emerge from a Brokered Convention as the Republican Candidate.

Well, duh.

And, I want you guys to nominate Joe Lieberman or Zell Miller.

Nananana boo boo.

The use of propaganda to further the aims of fascist governments is an old and effective method of camouflaging fascism, which Obama’s handlers realize all too well.

One of those strategies, used in a propaganda campaign, is to select an enemy and target them with the aid of a sympathetic press behind you.

During Hitler’s rise to power, the German Press demonized European Jews, betraying them as evil and money grubbing…painting them as being different from normal German citizens. It was this classification of the European Jews as the enemy that almost led to the extinction of them in that horrible attempted genocide, known as the Holocaust.

And, now, those on the Far Left of the Political Spectrum, and their unwitting Dupes, spurred on by their own political ambition, are deliberately, and, with malice of forethought,  are making Donald J. Trump, the object of their attempts to limit our Constitutional Freedom, through a calculated and, at times, manic, demonization of him.

Unfortunately for all of them, Trump is fighting back, which is his Constitutional Right, as an American Citizen.

The leader of the 1918 Russian Revolution, which led to the overthrow of the Czar and the installation of a Communist Government, Vladimir Lenin, said,

It is true that liberty is precious; so precious that it must be carefully rationed. 

Through the actions of these “New Facists”, as demonstrated so vividly, during the Trump Campaign Rallies and, even attacks on college students, who dare to support Trump, our American Liberty, especially our Constitutional Right of Freedom of Speech, is now being rationed, in favor of “Democratic Socialism”.

The phrase “Jumping the Shark” is a term to describe a moment when something that was once great has reached a point where it will now decline in quality and popularity.

The origin of this phrase comes from a Happy Days episode where the Fonz (Henry Winkler) jumped a shark on water skis in swim trunks and his iconic leather jacket. This was labeled the lowest point of the show.

That is what the Boston Globe has done by so blatantly moving from objectivity to advocacy on this April Sunday Morning.

Only, this time, the Boston Globe jumped the wrong “shark.

Iowa Caucus Analysis: Winners, Losers, and Unbelievable Spin

ss-120102-iowa-01.660;660;7;70;0Alright. As Maureen McGovern sang, “There’s Got to Be a Morning After”.

Now that the dust has settled, what can we learn from the results of the First Event of the Primary Season, the Iowa Caucus, or, as it is called, the “Hawkeye Caucai”?

Edward J. Rollins is a former assistant to President Ronald Reagan, who managed Reagan’s 1984 reelection campaign. He is presently a senior presidential fellow at Hofstra University and a member of the Political Consultants Hall of Fame. He is Senior Advisor for Teneo Strategy.

Rollins, a Fox News Contributor, has submitted the following op ed, analyzing the results of yesterday’s Iowa Caucus on the Republican Side of the Aisle…

It is always interesting to watch democracy in action and Iowa is ground zero.

Many political pundits and media analysts complain about the attention Iowa receives from candidates and the media because it goes first. But it also is a state filled with people who are willing to pay attention, to go to small events and forums (more than 1,500 have been held) and to show up at a caucus on a cold, often snowy night to participate in a ritual few states duplicate.

Millions of dollars are spent on TV commercials (over 60,000) and organization that Monday night produced a record turnout.

Iowa doesn’t always produce the eventual winners but it does eliminate the losers. With 17 Republican candidates starting this process, there are really only three or four real candidates now with voter support and sufficient monies to go on to the remaining contests.

With a record voter turnout in Iowa, the winner, Ted Cruz goes on with his extraordinary organization and conservative supporters with a big upset.

Marco Rubio, the best debater, came on strong and gained real momentum. He came very close to coming in second. Certainly he has to be viewed as a very serious candidate and the best bet to become the establishment candidate.

Trump is Trump and his special appeal to new voters and the angry anti-Washington element will go on, too, but with unpredictable results. He also paid a price for missing the last debate and fighting Fox News.

Ben Carson held his 10 percent base, but his candidacy is short lived and beyond Iowa has minimal support.

The biggest losers are Bush, Christie and Huckabee. Bush spent the most money and dropped like a rock.

Christie’s bluster, unlike Trump’s, didn’t sell. He has no money and no future in this race.

And Huckabee, who won this race eight years, and thought he could be a serious challenger against Romney in 2012, was a bottom dweller getting less than 2 percent of the vote. He raised no money and has no appeal and barely has enough money left to buy a bus ticket back to Arkansas. He quickly waved the flag of surrender and wisely quit the race.

One more may make the cut after Iowa, but this is the field now and it will be fascinating to watch.

Monday night’s win is a giant victory for Cruz and his team. He won in spite of a greater turnout than in years past and benefited from the dramatic increase in new voters. And now on to New Hampshire!

So, the Grand Old Party’s cup runneth over, They are seemingly blessed with 3 strong contenders for this Presidential Candidate Nomination.

The problem, as history has shown, is the fact that the Iowa Caucus is not exactly a bellweather by which to determine what will happen in November.

The other problem for the Republican Establishment, is the fact that they absolutely cannot stand the candidates that came in first and second.

Rubio, in the past, has proven to be a useful ally.

Things promise to be interesting in the months leading up to the convention.

Meanwhile, over at Propaganda Central for the Democrat Party and the Clinton Machine, otherwise known as the New York Times, Nate Cohn tried to declare the Queen of Mean, the winner of a VIRTUAL TIE.

Bernie Sanders is right: The Iowa Democratic caucuses were a “virtual tie,” especially after you consider that the results aren’t even actual vote tallies, but state delegate equivalents subject to all kinds of messy rounding rules and potential geographic biases.

The official tally, for now, is Hillary Clinton at 49.9 percent, and Mr. Sanders at 49.6 percent with 97 percent of precincts reporting early Tuesday morning.

But in the end, a virtual tie in Iowa is an acceptable, if not ideal, result for Mrs. Clinton and an ominous one for Mr. Sanders. He failed to win a state tailor made to his strengths.

He fares best among white voters. The electorate was 91 percent white, per the entrance polls. He does well with less affluent voters. The caucus electorate was far less affluent than the national primary electorate in 2008. He’s heavily dependent on turnout from young voters, and he had months to build a robust field operation. As the primaries quickly unfold, he won’t have that luxury.

Iowa is not just a white state, but also a relatively liberal one — one of only a few of states where Barack Obama won white voters in the 2008 primary and in both general elections. It is also a caucus state, which tends to attract committed activists.

In the end, Mr. Sanders made good on all of those strengths. He excelled in college towns. He won an astonishing 84 percent of those aged 17 to 29 — even better than Mr. Obama in the 2008 caucus. He won voters making less than $50,000 a year, again outperforming Mr. Obama by a wide margin. He won “very liberal” voters comfortably, 58 to 39 percent.

But these strengths were neatly canceled by Mrs. Clinton’s strengths. She won older voters, more affluent voters, along with “somewhat liberal” and “moderate” Democrats.

This raises a straightforward challenge for Mr. Sanders. He has nearly no chance to do as well among nonwhite voters as Mr. Obama did in 2008. To win, Mr. Sanders will need to secure white voters by at least a modest margin and probably a large one. In the end, Mr. Sanders failed to score a clear win in a state where Mr. Obama easily defeated Mrs. Clinton among white voters.

Mr. Sanders’s strength wasn’t so great as to suggest that he’s positioned to improve upon national polls once the campaign heats up. National polls show him roughly tied with Mrs. Clinton among white voters, and it was the case here as well. It suggests that additional gains for Mr. Sanders in national polls will require him to do better than he did in Iowa, not that the close race in Iowa augurs a close one nationally.

Mr. Sanders will have another opportunity to gain momentum after the New Hampshire primary. He might not get as much credit for a victory there as he would have in Iowa, since New Hampshire borders his home state of Vermont. But it could nonetheless give him another opportunity to overcome his weaknesses among nonwhite voters.

As a general rule, though, momentum is overrated in primary politics. In 2008, for instance, momentum never really changed the contours of the race. Mr. Obama’s victory in Iowa allowed him to make huge gains among black voters, but not much more — the sort of exception that would seem to prove the rule. Mr. Obama couldn’t even put Mrs. Clinton away after winning a string of states in early February.

Continue reading the main story Write A Comment There’s an even longer list of candidates with fairly limited appeal, particularly Republicans like Rick Santorum, Pat Buchanan or Mike Huckabee, who failed to turn early-state victories into broader coalitions.

The polls this year offer additional reasons to doubt it. Mrs. Clinton holds more than 50 percent of the vote in national surveys; her share of the vote never declined in 2008. The polls say that her supporters are more likely to be firmly decided than Mr. Sanders’s voters.

Back-to-back wins in Iowa and New Hampshire by Mr. Sanders might have been enough to overcome that history. The no-decision in Iowa ensures we won’t find out.

Wow.

I haven’t seen a job of spinning like that since Rumpelstiltskin spun straw into gold. (look him up, kids.)

Mr. Cohn, as we say down here in Dixie,

That dog don’t hunt.

  1. While Sanders’ strength does rely with white voters ( which is funny, because you Democrats are supposed to cherish DIVERSITY, but, I digress…), his base of power lies in the New England States, home of his Millennial Minions and a bunch of those college towns, which you referred to.  And the last time I checked, New Hampshire is located in New England.
  2. Mrs. Clinton’s Voter Base have begun to distance themselves, en masse, from her. She carries more baggage than the image of the late Bob Crane (Greg Kinnear) and his buddy (Willem Dafoe), rolling through the airport, in the Biographical movie, “Auto Focus” …And, she’s just as sleazy.
  3. Momentum “never really changed the contours of the race in 2008”, because it was all on Obama’s side, from the get-go. When you have the ground troops of SEIU and their partner-in-crime, ACORN, going door-to-door for you around the nation, it provides you with an insurmountable lead in “the community”. Hillary does not have access to those ground troops.
  4. BIG QUESTION: What happens if Obama and the Democrat Elites decide that they don’t like what they are seeing, so Obama orders the DOJ to indict Hillary and Crazy Uncle Joe enters the Primaries to “save the day”?

Clinton, no matter what those “smarter than the rest of the country” in the Northeast Corridor may choose to believe, is neither trustworthy nor likable as the polls have shown, time and again. Her Political Accomplishments are all negative, bordering on the nonexistent.

Bill’s coattails can cover up only so much political stain (Ask Monica).

Somebody had better hide all of the sharp instruments at the New York Times. This could get ugly.

Get your popcorn ready.
