On a related subject, in case any of you are interested in watching Scott Adams' daily video broadcasts (Coffee with Scott Adams), you no longer have to sign up for Twitter or Periscope, you can watch them on youtube:
Scott is best known as the creator of the Dilbert comic strip, but he's a very successful author and an ardent Trump supporter. Scott figured out early on that candidate Trump would be a phenomenal president because of his persuasion skills. Scott spends a lot of time analyzing political events, particularly things Pres. Trump says and does, from the standpoint of persuasion.
On the road.... stop at McDonalds, and the tv in the dining room, of the Angola NYS rest stop, is on CNN. Don Lemon? is on, going off on how badly he's been treated by TrumpHitler. I am mostly ignoring this, I have Kindle. But I try not to be utterly oblivious, and when they start throwing up images of "Trump Twits" that call Lemon stupid, I find I have to agree that he is.
I hate to agree with any politician, but golly darn, this guy on tv I know nothing about is crying like weasels ate his ball sack, and now the other kids won't play with him because the Big Bully on the playground has them chanting Dickless Don! Dickless Don!.... And it's just not so.
Yeah, some guy you insult every day, presumably lie about every day, and for all I know dream about burning alive every day, called you dumb. And now you are the victim? Because you aren't acting very smart as far as I can tell.
Having a Politician call you names is a Badge Of Honor for most people. Especially if he's the Other Party. If Obama had insulted me, I'd have it on a dang t-shirt and not only wear it, I'd sell it online. If Donald insulted me? Same thing, with better sales, and I'd hire someone to run my Facebook page!
But spend 25 minutes whining about how unfair a temp job government worker was to call you a whiny little idiot? That is like screaming over and over I am not hysterical! Sorry dude, you are an idiot.
If I had a CNN show, & got such a free publicity boost, I'd have the Trump Twit as my freaking LOGO. Big Graphic with the Twit centered and emphasized.
"What is unfortunate is that their lies are frequently picked up by the New York Times, the Associated Press, AFP, CNN and other news sources and disseminated as though they were true. You would think that those “mainstream” news outlets would figure out what is going on, but so far, they seemingly haven’t."
Ducbsa, the Palestinian Propaganda Ministry, is famous for not bothering to make it's lies hard to disprove. They know it does not matter to Leftists in the West, who are conditioned to believe lies. So why bother?
The same doll placed on piles of rubble, shots taken from different angles, and ruins with exposed rebar rusted almost to nothing being labeled as a New Israeli Bombing, are just the first items that come to mind.
Hiding behind children sums up their bravery.
I often point out that it is the 2 major religions in the world today that consider lying a blessing and a way to get to heaven, that are also responsible for most of the death on the planet not caused by old age.
That's true, in the case of the Palestinian Leaders, they are members of Both death cults, and thieves on a scale that British Royalty envies. But I can't help but think they would be just as evil faking believing in any another faith.
Full assault on Alex Jones, and the information he broadcasts.
He aint perfect but he's a lot closer to the truth than anything mainstream.
He claims that these attacks are a "beta test" for a national ban on free speech. A ban on free speech has been in the works in the US since the Soviets began implementing destabilization operations.
The left may not all be guilty of intentionally colluding with Russia, but Russia has been doing a beautiful job at composing the doctrine of the left. As I've said before, "Russian collusion" means the exact opposite of what the mainstream believes. Youtube Yuri Bezmenov.
The 16th is "100 Newspapers openly conspire to attack Trump's attack on them" day.
AKA, "We are going to Prove Trump Right" day.
But only for Trump fans.
Anti-Trumpers, which are Legion, will applaud the Bravery Of The Oppressed Press As They Defend Themselves From Scurilous....blah blah" Absolutely with Lots Of Capital Letters.
Here's the stuff I get sent to me on Facebook. Which is as much, if not more THE MEDIA today.
Posted as picture by Y.."Just unfriended and unfollowed yet another person who was emboldened to reveal their previously hidden bigotry."
reply from A "'ve unfollowed a number of people on FB recently because I just do not want to see the Drumph's face in their supportive memes or their vitriol toward Democrats and the legitimate media. Sometimes I honestly wish I didn't know their political leanings. I've also decided not to give a future commission to a doll artist because she recently started supporting the mistake in the White House."
reply from B "I sincerely hope it's no one I know or have met. On the other hand... Is there any chance there was a misunderstanding? That's happened to me more than once, fairly recently. Sad if it (a mistake) blows up an otherwise promising friendship. But inexcusable if true."
Inexcusable if true? Some person has a difference of opinion on Politics, the Prime American Argument, ( until major league sports) then You must cast them out of your life?
A wants to Ruin their business by announcing to all that they are boycotting them? You KNOW she/he is on the Doll pages and ranting about the Drumph Scum.
WTF is wrong with these people?
It's everywhere. There wasn't this much hatred in the 1970's when there were machine guns nests sandbagged in the Treasury lobby.
This ultra intolerance is seriously a mental illness, it is deliberate, and it is going to end in bloodshed, and I think On Purpose.
I mean, I can't stand the guy. The only way I'd meet him is as a novelty, like an exotic critter at the zoo. And frankly, wouldn't bother. I don't chase celebrities and Politicians make my soul ache just from the aura.
Or in the unlikely event I get some award, and then the respect for the Office applies, and unless it's a Real Hero of yours, what difference does it make what trained monkey hands it to you?
I realize that sounds cynical, but I've actually received an award with a "found it in the back of the desk drawer when I moved into my new promotion office and these were buried in the desk out of sight. Wanna come pick it up?" phone call, years after the ceremony they didn't invite us to, because the case was in plea bargain when the awards were to be handed out.
Missed the free dinner too.
Even funnier is when my buddy & I ( who each got the same award/for the same thing ) went to pick them up, and got a humourous apology from the new Captain. He was sorry that "Gordie", the Ex-Chief, ( whose name is on the awards ) could not be there to give them to us, because he was in prison at the time. ( For some kind of wire fraud/bribery )
Ah, Good Times.
So I feel I can be a little detached from Trump Luv or Hatred.
Frankly, I'd probably dislike the guy more if the Hatred wasn't so incredibly virulent.
As a solid Counterrevolutionary, ( Soviet definition ) I see the Left as fundamentally dishonest. The Logic is inescapable. Liars might tell the truth about some things. But when the all say the exact same thing? That's a planned lie.
So the "press" is the Boy that cried Wolf! If Trump really did do something evil, how can I sort that out of the daily lies? The noise to signal ratio is infinite. Pure static.
And the fact that he's not part of the political swamp in DC.
Don't care if I like the guy's personality or his combover - he's getting shit done. And, he's getting it done for Americans - not for himself.
More importantly, he's doing exactly what he promised to do in his campaign.
If anyone decides they want to "not know" me (I don't do FB so I can't get unfriended) because of my politics...screw 'em, they're too shallow for me anyway and I'm sorry I didn't catch it sooner. Bye. Don't let the door hit ya.
And so, on Thursday, CNN, along with six other far-left media outlets (the Washington Post, BuzzFeed, Politico, the New York Times, NBC, and the AP) sued for the release of the names and home addresses of all of the Manafort jurors, a move that is both disturbing and almost unprecedented.
As Bre Payton at the Federalist points out, “Publicly outing the names and home addresses of jurors is considered ethically questionable, as outlined in this guidance sheet on the topic from the Reporter’s Committee for Freedom of the Press.”
To begin with, it is seen as unseemly to thrust jurors into the spotlight against their will when they are not volunteering for publicity; they are chosen.
What many see here, and not without precedent, is yet another attempt by the media, most especially CNN, to bully and intimidate private, everyday citizens into convicting Manafort.
CNN’s intimidation tactics have been well-established over the years.
One of the most telling and comical propaganda campaigns that I've seen as of late was the effectively spread but poorly thought out narrative of the story of "1984" exposing GOP tactics...right when people were spreading memes to make "1984" fiction again.
The power of propaganda. It's crazy how many people have their heads full of the conflicting narratives that of comprise their propaganda none of which can be quantified on any logical, statistical, or practical basis.
The only thing they have with any scientific basis that I could tell is the climatology stuff, but they're so busy pushing a political and economic agenda in trying to create the world's largest redistribution scheme and sensationalizing the claims with the usual doomsday propaganda that it is all quite offputting. The fact that the study had a predetermined agenda and a data set with a supposedly universally accepted "concensus" also makes it a bit less sciencey. In the meantime the "I'm saving the world by spending everybody's money" people have another crusade.
There's the Democrats and their media cronies calling their political opposition Nazis and Russian collaborators, using the propaganda techniques perfected by those regimes...but let's go on endlessly about ridiculous and petty things.
