Many, if not most, of today’s “journalists” are journalists in the same way that an arsonist is in the construction industry.
Many, if not most, of today’s “journalists” are journalists in the same way that an arsonist is in the construction industry.
The media knew that they needed only to repeat that mantra over and over and over and over again, and that would do it. The narrative, like a well-placed hook in a trout’s lip, would be sufficiently set in place… regardless of the actual results of the election.
Oh, you’re the trout.
This struck me a long time ago, and nothing since has dislodged me from this conclusion: Whenever the Left takes a position on an issue, someone winds up dead. Or impoverished.
All evidence seem to point to the conclusion that, left unattended, and absent the hysteria, COVID might have caused a small and temporary up-tick in overall deaths in the world, but that’s about it.
Hardly a “pandemic.” Just another “flu,” like the swine one, or the avian one, of the Spanish one, or the SARS one, or the MERS one, or the H1N1 one… (yes, yes, I know… redundancies and all. Just naming a bunch of names we’ve all heard for: the flu)
These accusers are out of intellectual gas, and have been so for a very long time. Otherwise, there’s another simple truth: If they had compelling, persuasive, intelligent arguments to deploy, they’d… deploy them.
The truth is simple: The accusers have as much evidence that you’re a racist as you have that they’re child molesters. Therefore, if they call you a racist, then it’s okay to call them child molesters. Say the truth. Tell the truth. Frequently. Loudly. Relentlessly. The truth shall set us all — even the morons and idiots — free.
Still, no one states the obvious conclusion that everyone should draw from this: The Left recognizes — loudly, publicly and ostentatiously — that they can’t win a real debate on any important issue. So they simply dispatch whatever goons they’ve got hanging around to prevent the debate entirely.
Surely everyone’s also noticed that all goons are leftists, yes?
There are points — legitimate points — to make that run counter to Conservative ideas. Conservative thinking, though, is apparently so far beyond the ken of your average Democrat politician, and many of their voters, that they don’t bother even to try to engage with them.
Have the American media — regular and Social — been Tassified? Pravdafied? Do we need a new noun: media tassification? Media provdafication? Are media personalities like Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon and the like merely now pravdacateurs? (pr.: prav-dah-ka-TERS)
I’m going to say this very gently and in good faith. And I mean it in no hostile way at all. In other words, I believe that the idea that “Trump is evil and must go” is entirely defensible. And I believe it’s wrong. Or at least not a slam dunk, by any means.
The 2020 election was stolen, and it was stolen by a multi-pronged effort that still managed to defeat Trump only by a whisker.
Ignore the reports of disappearing ballots and magically appearing ballots.
The other reports (inside) are indisputably true…
There’s talk of rushing through an impeachment and removal of Trump. Of arresting him, and even of jailing him for treason… still, I believe, a capital crime.
I do wonder what would have happened if the Dems, and the Left in general, had not been so hideous for the past four years.
What was most striking about this election cycle was the tsunami of accusations of hate, fascism, intolerance, totalitarianism, authoritarianism, denial of rights, corruption and violence coming from the left… all accompanied by a vast wave of hate, fascism, intolerance, totalitarianism, authoritarianism, denial of rights, corruption and violence… also coming from the Left.
Margaret Thatcher said: “The facts of life are Conservative,” to which I countered, “But society’s white noise is leftist.” And it is. It takes a real effort to go against the tsunami of leftist messaging that washes constantly over all Americans, to become only an independent thinker, much less a contrarian.
A public figure is ACTUALLY only as “divisive” or “incendiary” or “controversial” as WE the PEOPLE CHOOSE to be divided or incensed or bothered by him.
OR… as the media decide to hoodwink our collective ovine gluteus maximi into believing that he is.
I’m JUST FINE with making unsubstantiated, unsupported allegations against widely-known public figures. The assumption IS reasonable that others have heard it all before, and are familiar with the background and any supporting FACTS that might buttress the allegations.
However, if then CHALLENGED to DEMONSTRATE that you know the facts behind the allegations, you DO have a moral duty to do that. Else you suggest that you’re merely swallowing uncritically that which the media, who’ve long proven themselves to be dishonest fraud merchants, have been dishing out. Much of the idea “out there” that Trump is evil has EXACTLY that origin.
You and I both know what Twitter, or its basic communications unit, the “tweet” is: a quick, off-the-cuff pronouncement, confined to 288 (or so, if I recall correctly) characters, about… things. Current events, thought-of-the-day, the latest Boston Red Sox news, the weather. You name it.
Well, what about that? Why is it such a big deal that Trump uses Twitter extensively to express himself? The thing here is that Presidents don’t talk “off-the-cuff.” Except, that is, for Trump… who does..
And, presto-changeo, just like that, Presidents do talk off the cuff! And will, for the foreseeable future. From now on, Presidents will have an entire team devoted to using Twitter, or “off-the-cuff talking,” most effectively to take the greatest advantage of it.
Did anyone really doubt that in the case of such a crisis, left-wing people and institutions would fail miserably? Thinking back, how would a hypothetical President Hillary Clinton have handled any of this differently? How would the press have covered her efforts?
Well, the crisis arrived, and — surprise, surprise! — all the left-wing people and institutions — around the world! — failed miserably.
Who benefits from all this chaos, death, panic, decreased wealth? The clear answer to that is obvious: The political Left.
Remember: there are as many “causes of climate change” as there are: “things that happen” on the earth. Here’s another uncontroversial fact: Every second of every day, at least a billion things happen that have more of an effect on the climate than you will have over the course of your entire lifetime.

Idiocy is the luxury of those with intellectual capacity; the prison of those without. This reality doesn’t make the ones with intellectual capacity any less idiots.
A friend of this blog saw our recent piece and insisted that we post the summary paragraph as its own post, under the “It’s Worth Repeating” category.
Here’s a summary of the entire impeachment fraud: A whole mess of Democrats, with matches in one hand and gallon cans of gasoline in the other, are all standing in front of the burning house shouting, “Trump lit that fire!” And the media, bless their corrupt, little IQ-deprived souls, are nodding sagely to each other, intoning, “Yep. Must’ve been Trump who lit that fire!”
It’s indisputable that, in the context of the Iran nuclear “deal,” the Iranian régime played the Obama administration for a bunch of fools. It wasn’t difficult; the Obama administration was peopled mainly by idiots, led by its egomaniacal idiot-in-chief. The Iran nuclear “deal” was cobbled together by corrupt, left-wing idiots on the American side and, on the Iranian side, by amoral baboons who realized full well that they were negotiating with idiots. What chance, really, did it have of being something good or positive? More to the point, what chance did the deal actually have of curbing Iran’s nuclear power ambitions?
No chance of either.
The First Amendment to the Constitution guarantees a free press. But, that means that the press is to be free of interference or oppression coming from… the government. The First Amendment does not, however, guarantee that private citizens won’t interfere with or oppress the press.
Don’t get me wrong: I have no problem at all with Bill Clinton bilking obviously idiotic Russians out of 500 large, but let’s, please, not pretend that it’s all on the up-and-up.
If the media had one shred of honesty, one iota of honor, one itty-bitty, teentsy-weentsy morsel of principle, one tiny crumb of integrity… Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Loretta Lynch, Eric Holder, and numerous other much-loved left-wing figures in America would be holed-up in some third-world, s**t-hole country, praying that there’s no extradition agreement with the U.S.
There’s so much stuff that’s widely-accepted “conventional wisdom” in America that’s patently, obviously, transparently, self-evidently… false.
Some of it’s just plain idiotic!
This picture of President Obama with a bullhorn, making a stirring little speech at Ground Zero, is very famous…
Only a pathetically amateurish hack “news” organization would ever include, in something called a news feature, a schlock phrase like “in an area prone to increasingly intense forest fires due to climate change.” National Public Radio is just such a pathetically amateurish hack organization.
This is the case where one Claas Relotius, a “journalist” for the very prestigious German publication Der Spiegel admitted that he’d been fabricating stories for many years. So now, Der Spiegel, in an attempt to get out in front of all this, is suing Relotius. As if it’s entirely his fault… Just a thought, but I think the case can be made that the American public has standing to file a criminal complaint, probably a class action lawsuit type of thing, against much of America’s “news” media.
What Claas Relotius did was produce fake news. For years. His fake news was a bunch of out and out fabrications. Made up stuff. Stuff that never happened that Relotius said did happen. That kind of stuff. However, there’s no difference between that kind of fake news and any other “news” that distorts or misleads in order to push an agenda. No difference whatsoever.
It’s laughably absurd to think that NPR knows where all the President’s information comes from. Yet, there they are, at NPR, looking you right in the eye and claiming that they do know. If you can’t call a very transparently false thing, Fake News, then to what, pray tell, can you give that name?

“Consuming many media sources, learning to think critically, then combining numerous media sources with finely-honed critical thinking, to become ACTUALLY informed,” is a nice summary of “The Basic Responsibility of All American Citizens.” If all American citizens were to take this responsibility seriously, the Democrat Party’s electoral viability would evaporate overnight.

This daily, wall-to-wall coverage of Khashoggi’s disappearance is ridiculous and unseemly; a round-the-clock exercise in navel-gazing by a self-obsessed media corps who couldn’t give a tinker’s damn about things like truth, honesty and decency, but never miss an opportunity to tell you ad nauseum how great and important they are.

Leftist ideas are old, fat, flaccid, weak, feeble. It’s because those ideas go unchallenged in all the places where they should be most vigorously challenged: academia, the press, Hollywood, pop culture. While Conservative ideas are attacked from all those same angles, as well as from others, as soon as they emerge. The result: we on the Right are constantly honing, and adjusting, and re-adjusting, and adding and discarding, testing, testing and re-testing, until we have something that’s coherent and makes sense. We actually like to test out ideas, because we love the challenge of actually solving problems. The Left wants power. Continue reading Why The Right Always Wins Arguments With The Left
Only Republicans and Conservatives have any right whatsoever to speak out on the topic of treating women with respect… or not. The Left showed what they thought about “sexual harassment” when their TOP DAWGS — Bill Clinton and Harvey Weinstein — spent all their public lives pulling out all the sexual harassment stops, including obvious abuse of women, as well as credible reports of ACTUAL rape. And the Left let them get away with it… FOR DECADES. Continue reading Leftists Have No Right to Say Anything in This “MeToo” Moment. They Should… Shut Up.

Look, these things are a grotesque fad, and there are things you should realize about fads: First: understand that it IS a fad. The real, permanent solution for a fad is to wait it out. All fads are media-driven. The real, permanent way to kill a fad is to starve it of attention. Only the media can do that. So, while we wait for the media to stop feeding the school shooting fad, I have the simple solution for the here and now… Continue reading THE Solution to School Shootings
One thing at which leftists are REALLY GOOD is deflecting attention away from their own nitwittery, dastardliness, evil, corruption, crimes and dishonesty. It doesn’t hurt their efforts that the major institutions involved in communicating to the American public — the media, Hollywood and pop culture — are all as thoroughly corrupt as the Left, BECAUSE they’re institutions of the Left.

I’m not sure that the Trump Presidency is worse than what, with another Republican, likely would have been just an interregnum between the Obama Presidency and the next horror-show Democrat President. Furthermore, don’t forget: lovable, corrupt, witless old Bernie Sanders made it okay to call oneself a Socialist again. That means that the Democrat Party field for President in upcoming primaries will no longer, for the foreseeable future, be lacking an avowedly Socialist candidate for the Presidency. Great. –> Continue reading Yet Another Masterful Column from Jonah Goldberg — and Some Discussion

When CNN announced that they had very much engaged in genuine, authentic, true-blue, real… Fake News, regarding the Russia silliness, President Trump asked exactly the question that we would have asked immediately thereafter: What about all their other stories that, upon some inspection, would turn out to be faked as well?
