The big "news" is that the White House aka the Press Secretary, won't specify which liars are liars. They are really incensed about it! Here is a typical "you mean what I want to accuse you of saying" ( not what you actually said ) response from a really really rich guy's newspaper.
We are getting tired of being blamed for....everything.
The Klan Party says we are racist. The defenders of criminal, murdering, illegal trespassers says we are criminal. The billionaire sponsored "get over it" Move on.org created to excuse Bill Clinton's sexual misconduct, insists it will never Move On. Because we are all rapist white men. ( especially the black, and women, and the Uncle Tom black women! )
And, of course, Trump started the Right Wing Nazi Party by time traveling with Russian Collusion.
When told the Nazis were Socialists, they vehemently deny it, it's just words. They couldn't have anything to do with Bernie! Or Hillary! ( despite free health care, government take over of industry, all that stuff Maxine Waters demands )
I have to admit, the Nazis were less elitist than Democrats today. They had Strength Through Joy camps where the common youth could go get fresh air, exercise, and get laid, with consent, if foolishly, while today you need to be connected to get to underage sex slave island. Like Bill.
When the Nazis were less hypocritical, more concerned with the common man, and more honest than your Party Leaders, what do you do?
I really don't get it. We have a multi-million dollar, multi-year investigation about foreign influence in our elections, with this idea being demonized in the media, as well as by political leaders. Then we have this, where foreign influencers are pretty much praised as heroes. I can only imagine that the difference is the agenda. Honestly, the left has zero sense of ethics what so ever.
I don't think we can assume the entire View cheerleader squad is as ignorant as Joy when it comes to how elections work. But it would be fun to quiz them. ( like the videos of several conservative pundits on college campuses, showing how wasted your tax money was for diseducation. )
Left wing pundit (male, white ) is complaining that Ted Cruz won over "beto" O'rourke because White Women Are Racist!
That's right, voting for an actual, minority, Hispanic American with a "white" name instead of a really White majority male using an Appropriated Hispanic Nick name ( and just recently, to lie about his Whiteness ) is Racist!
I look forward to "beet" pretending to be misgendered in his Presidential bid. That wouldn't sell in Texas, but he got over $70 million from various sources including Hydra, and is already a contender for 2020 as Chosen by the richest Elite Dems, just as Hillary was at this point in the election cycle.
It reminds me of Dharma & Greg, the initially brilliant tv show, when Greg was running for office, & got paparazzi'd while "doing" it in a car during a rally. When it turned out he was with his Wife, ( Unheard of!!!), he got a big surge of support! Then his opponent had a press conference to come out, reveal his male lover, standing next to his wife on stage! Being San Francisco, he won.
As the 2020 election campaign begins, I look forward to the attempts to out lefty each other, followed by mass dishonesty as they pretend rational centrism, to the general public, while their minions give speeches to the Communist Party rallies, promising a Worker's Paradise of Gestapo style Global Warming dictatorship.
One of my first flying lessons was from a WASP with more P-40 time than most Flying Tigers, in a plane known to kill more students than you'd believe. Stall/spin on landing approach was a brutally Darwinian elimination of the unfit for combat.
She took me out over the valley, and after telling me to "step on the ball" for my first time with rudder pedals, slammed the Citabria into a snap roll ( the aerial equivalent of rolling a pickup truck off a mountain ) and a spin, yelled, "the plane is yours" over the scream of tortured air, and let go of the controls.
The other pilots later explained it was her way of choosing her students. If you didn't vomit, or scream in terror like a little girl, she'd allow more lessons, being utterly uninterested in coddling fools.
Her flight jacket, worn on cold days, wore Fifinella on one shoulder, the American flag on the other, and a Hero Of The Soviet Union ribbon on her chest. ( for delivering fighter planes and bombers to Soviet pilots in western Alaska )
I do credit her with my surviving getting sucked into a cloud in a glider with no gyro instruments.
I've flown through virga heavy enough to crash a helicopter, or at least require replacement rotor blades after.
If the pilots of Marine One choose not to fly, you have to be crazy to. No one else flew to the ceremony, and the decision not to disrupt the traffic to the point other Country's leaders would be inconvenienced was smart.
By the time the most trusted man on Earth decided to just lie through his teeth about the Tet offensive, trust in media objectivity was over. It took a while to catch on, but the News had become Soviet propaganda by the time of Nixon.
Not all of it, and not all the time.
Today, it's 24/7 one note. Just the high pitched scream of hate in the name of anti America. Christians are mass murdered, never to be mentioned lest Islam's war on civilization be admitted. Socialism is whitewashed to the point people Believe it is Right Wing. The Party of Jim Crow now pushes overt racism in the name of diversity.
The WaPoo just flings waste on the wall and trusts that their readers have traded thinking for orange man hate. The commenters on this link haven't made that trade and point out slam dunk contrasts like Janet Reno and RFK:
The petty, mean, and smart thing to do is simply not call on Acosta for questions. If challenged, say "who?".
There's no Right to be called on in a press conference. Also, have some one on staff who is a leaker trying to hurt the Administration, ( according to the media, at least half the staff ) fed the story that the White House is testing Acosta's civility. In fact feed several leakers different variations to determine exactly who to use or prosecute.
It should take near zero effort to get hysterical reaction from the Fake News folk.
