On MLK’s Birthday, the MSM Tried to get MLK III to Turn On Trump After a Meeting. “The Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men…”

January 17, 2017

85-2The Main Stream Media attempted to intimidate the wrong American, yesterday.

Newsbusters.org reported that

On Monday afternoon, reporters stationed inside Trump Tower begged Martin Luther King III to attack President-elect Trump over tweets concerning Democratic Congressman John Lewis (Ga.) following a meeting on the day honoring King’s father, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

King began by stating that he and Trump had “a very constructive meeting” with most of the focus on voting rights, but reporters quickly shifted the topic to Lewis. 

ABC correspondent Tom Llamas snuck in the first pathetic question, trying to bait King into blasting Trump: “Mr. King, as you know, Representative Lewis still has the scars from the March on Selma. Were you offended by the President-elect’s tweet that Representative Lewis is all talk and no action?”

King responded by stating Lewis is, like “many others,” a “bridge builder” but added that “in the heat of emotion, a lot of things get said on both sides.”

With the press corps not satisfied, an unidentified male reporter trotted out this second-hand claim by a woman he said he saw last week at Trump Tower:

“Sir, you know many African Americans are very concerned about a Trump presidency. A woman came in here last week and told me he’s going to have black people up against the wall, both literally and figuratively. Did he allay your concerns that he’ll be a president for all people, black and white?”

Once again, King didn’t take the bait as he ruled “certainly he said that, that he is going to represent Americans” and he’ll “continue to evaluate that” throughout Trump’s presidency.

While Lewis has been in the spotlight, CNN’s Jim Acosta has been as well, following his well-publicized tussle with Trump.  Mediaite claimed that Acosta proceeded to “grill” King with this question, but that couldn’t have been further from the truth:

“Sir, but if I may follow up, isn’t there something that cuts to your core when you hear the President-elect refer to John Lewis as all talk and no action? I mean, nothing could be further from the truth, isn’t that right? John Lewis is not all talk and no action.”

“No, absolutely. I would say John Lewis has demonstrated that he’s action. As I said, things get said on both sides in the heat of emotion and at some point, this nation, we’ve got to move forward,” answered King.

Here’s the relevant portion of the transcript from Martin Luther King III’s January 16 press conference at Trump Tower:

MARTIN LUTHER KING III: Let me briefly not just reiterate but state that we did have a very constructive meeting. The seminal right of the modern civil rights movement was the right to vote. My father fought so diligently for it, certainly Congressman John Lewis and many others, Hosea Williams fought for as well. It is very clear that the system is not working at its maximum, and through an op-ed that you may have seen, we provided at least a solution to begin to address a broken voting system. That was the dialogue, most of the dialogue that we talked about constructively. We believe we provided a solution that at least will give everyone an I.D. 

TOM LLAMAS: Mr. King, as you know, Representative Lewis still has the scars from the March on Selma. Were you offended by the President-elect’s tweet that Representative Lewis is all talk and no action? 

KING: First of all I think that in the heat of emotion, a lot of things get said on both sides and I think that at some point, and I am, as John Lewis and many others are, a bridge builder. The goal is to bring America together and Americans. We are a great nation, but we must become a greater nation, and what my father represented — my mother represented through her life, what I hope that I’m trying to do is always bring people together. 

UNIDENTIFIED MALE REPORTER: Sir, you know many African Americans are very concerned about a Trump presidency. A woman came in here last week and told me he’s going to have black people up against the wall, both literally and figuratively. Did he allay your concerns that he’ll be a president for all people, black and white? 

KING: Well certainly he said that, that he is going to represent Americans. He said that over and over again, and I think that we will continue to evaluate that. I think that the nation supports — I believe that’s his intent, but I think also we have to consistently engage with pressure, public pressure. It doesn’t happen automatically. My father and his team understood that, did that, and I think that Americans are prepared to do that. 

JIM ACOSTA: Sir, but if I may follow up, isn’t there something that cuts to your core when you hear the President-elect refer to John Lewis as all talk and no action? I mean, nothing could be further from the truth, isn’t that right? John Lewis is not all talk and no action. 

KING: No, absolutely. I would say John Lewis has demonstrated that he’s action. As I said, things get said on both sides in the heat of emotion and at some point, this nation, we’ve got to move forward. We can’t stay on — I mean, people are literally probably dying. We need to be talking about how do we feed people, how do we clothe people, how do we create the best education system. That’s what we need to be focused on. 

LLAMAS: On this day, what would your father’s message would be to President-elect Trump? What do you think your father’s message would be to President-elect Trump? 

KING: This is the final answer I’m going to have because I’m going to reiterate what I just said. I think my father would be concerned about the fact that there are 50 million fact there are 50 or 60 million people living in poverty and somehow, we’ve got to create the climate for all boats to be lifted. In America, with a multi-trillion dollar economy — $20 trillion economy almost, it’s insanity we have poor people in this nation. That’s unacceptable and when we work together, we know we can roll up our sleeves. There’s nothing we as Americans can’t do. Thank you very much. 

As I have written in previous posts, America’s Main Stream Media abandoned their role as objective observers and reporters of the news a long time ago.

With the overwhelming majority of those in the MSM being Liberals, they no longer view their role in American Society as being simply news reporters. They view themselves as being advocates…Liberal activists with a camera and a microphone, whose job is to stir up trouble for those who do not follow in lockstep behind the Democratic Elite.

As shown in the above article, they are not above continuing and exacerbating the racial division which America has experienced during the presidency of Barack Hussein Obama.

Just like the out-of-touch Hollywood Celebrities, the infantile cry baby wannabe anarchists of #DisruptJ20, and the anti-Constitution Democratic Congressmen like John Lewis, America’s Main Stream Media are in the middle of an epic meltdown triggered by the legal election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America.

As has been affirmed to me time and time again during my surfing of the web, including Facebook Political Pages and websites, Modern American Liberals, including those in the Main Stream Media, are living in a state of denial.

They respond as if you have told them that you shot Ol’ Yeller, when you inform them that Liberalism is still the minority political belief in America, even (and especially) after the 8-year reign of their fallen messiah, King Barack The First and the defeat of their political party’s hand-picked successor, the Queen of Mean, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

This salient fact explains why CNN and MSNBC constantly trail Fox News in the television ratings polls.

Well, that plus the fact, as President-elect Trump has so eloquently put it time and again, THEY ARE A BUNCH OF LIARS.

Americans are now living in a  time when the Main Stream Media’s blatant propaganda is no longer believed at face value, as the evidence which refutes it is appearing in the live videos and photographs being shared on Facebook and other Social Media.

And, in response to the fact that average Americans do not believe a thing that they report, the MSM has decided that their role is to move from being objective reporters to being the unashamed Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party, pushing its progressive and disruptive agenda forward BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.

Hence, the attempted intimidation of Martin Luther King III yesterday, in a desperate attempt to produce the results that those “journalists” wanted.

King III refused to be intimidated, just as President-elect Trump has refused to allow them to report lies about him.

So, with average Americas receiving our news from alternate sources and a man being inaugurated as President of the United States in 3 days who refuses to play their games, that leaves the Democratic Sycophants of the Main Stream Media S.O.L.

…And, you know what than means.

The Liberals’ National Temper Tantrum will not end any time soon.

Pass the popcorn.

Wag The Dog II: Cybernetic Boogaloo: Obama Administration Planning Cyber War With Russia

October 15, 2016

exposed-600-li

Shortly before an election, a spin-doctor and a Hollywood producer join efforts to fabricate a war in order to cover up a presidential sex scandal. – “Wag The Dog” (1997) starring Dustin Hoffman and Robert DeNiro

NBCNews.com reports that

The Obama administration is contemplating an unprecedented cyber covert action against Russia in retaliation for alleged Russian interference in the American presidential election, U.S. intelligence officials told NBC News.

Current and former officials with direct knowledge of the situation say the CIA has been asked to deliver options to the White House for a wide-ranging “clandestine” cyber operation designed to harass and “embarrass” the Kremlin leadership.

The sources did not elaborate on the exact measures the CIA was considering, but said the agency had already begun opening cyber doors, selecting targets and making other preparations for an operation. Former intelligence officers told NBC News that the agency had gathered reams of documents that could expose unsavory tactics by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Vice President Joe Biden told “Meet the Press” moderator Chuck Todd on Friday that “we’re sending a message” to Putin and that “it will be at the time of our choosing, and under the circumstances that will have the greatest impact.”

When asked if the American public will know a message was sent, the vice president replied, “Hope not.”

Retired Admiral James Stavridis told NBC News’ Cynthia McFadden that the U.S. should attack Russia’s ability to censor its internal internet traffic and expose the financial dealings of Putin and his associates.

“It’s well known that there’s great deal of offshore money moved outside of Russia from oligarchs,” he said. “It would be very embarrassing if that was revealed, and that would be a proportional response to what we’ve seen” in Russia’s alleged hacks and leaks targeting U.S. public opinion.

Sean Kanuck, who was until this spring the senior U.S. intelligence official responsible for analyzing Russian cyber capabilities, said not mounting a response would carry a cost.

“If you publicly accuse someone,” he said, “and don’t follow it up with a responsive action, that may weaken the credible threat of your response capability.”

President Obama will ultimately have to decide whether he will authorize a CIA operation. Officials told NBC News that for now there are divisions at the top of the administration about whether to proceed.

Two former CIA officers who worked on Russia told NBC News that there is a long history of the White House asking the CIA to come up with options for covert action against Russia, including cyber options — only to abandon the idea.

“We’ve always hesitated to use a lot of stuff we’ve had, but that’s a political decision,” one former officer said. “If someone has decided, `We’ve had enough of the Russians,’ there is a lot we can do. Step one is to remind them that two can play at this game and we have a lot of stuff. Step two, if you are looking to mess with their networks, we can do that, but then the issue becomes, they can do worse things to us in other places.”

A second former officer, who helped run intelligence operations against Russia, said he was asked several times in recent years to work on covert action plans, but “none of the options were particularly good, nor did we think that any of them would be particularly effective,” he said.

Putin is almost beyond embarrassing, he said, and anything the U.S. can do against, for example, Russian bank accounts, the Russian can do in response.

“Do you want to have Barack Obama bouncing checks?” he asked.

Former CIA deputy director Michael Morell expressed skepticism that the U.S. would go so far as to attack Russian networks.

“Physical attacks on networks is not something the U.S. wants to do because we don’t want to set a precedent for other countries to do it as well, including against us,” he said. “My own view is that our response shouldn’t be covert — it should overt, for everybody to see.”

The Obama administration is debating just that question, officials say — whether to respond to Russia via cyber means, or with traditional measures such as sanctions.

The CIA’s cyber operation is being prepared by a team within the CIA’s Center for Cyber Intelligence, documents indicate. According to officials, the team has a staff of hundreds and a budget in the hundreds of millions, they say.

The covert action plan is designed to protect the U.S. election system and insure that Russian hackers can’t interfere with the November vote, officials say. Another goal is to send a message to Russia that it has crossed a line, officials say.

While the National Security Agency is the center for American digital spying, the CIA is the lead agency for covert action and has its own cyber capabilities. It sometimes brings in the NSA and the Pentagon to help, officials say.

CNN clarifies NBC’s report…

There is mounting evidence that the Russian government is supplying WikiLeaks with hacked emails pertaining to the US presidential election, US officials familiar with the investigation have told CNN.As WikiLeaks continues to publish emails belonging to Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, US officials told CNN that there is growing evidence that Russia is using the organization as a delivery vehicle for the messages and other stolen information.
 
The methods of the disclosures “suggest Moscow is at least providing the information or is possibly directly responsible for the leaks,” one US official said.
US intelligence officials are still investigating the degree of connection between Russia and WikiLeaks but they remain confident that Russia is behind the leaks themselves.
CNN attempted to reach WikiLeaks for comment but received no response. WikiLeaks’s founder, Julian Assange, has previously denied any connection to or cooperation with Russia.

Why would Obama and his administration intentionally be attempting to start a war with America’s greatest enemy less than a month out from the 2016 presidential election?

As the article states, written by Liberals to assure Liberals of how noble the Administration’s motive is, they are doing this to ensure that Russia does not “interfere” with our election process.

Which is an ironic statement, when you consider that fraud is already being discovered being committed by Democrat operatives in election precincts across America, and the election is not even here, yet.

I believe that the Administration’s excuse is a bunch of hooey.

As wild as this may sound to some of you, I believe it there are two reasons why President Barack Obama and his administration want to provoke Russia.

First, this is simply retaliation for the releasing of these emails, which the Main Stream Media is avoiding covering, which show corruption and collusion between President Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton, John Podesta, and the entire Obama Administration. If covered properly by the Main Stream Media, it would ensure that Donald J. Trump would be the next president of the United States of America.

Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and the Democratic Party cannot allow the content of these emails to be seen by average Americans, including those who voted for the Democratic Party for decades, or their political party will vanish from the face of the Earth.

The political corruption outlined in these emails is of a magnitude not seen on this Earth since the old Soviet Union.

It is ironic that Russia has discovered the hidden Corruption of the ruling party of our government when it was the immense corruption of their own ruling party which brought down the Empire of the Soviet Union.

The second reason that I believe that this is happening now, is because the Democratic Party and Barack Hussein Obama are hedging their bets. They know that Hillary Rodham Clinton is in poor health and is weighted down by all of her own scandals. These reasons, along with the fact that she is drawing crowds that will not even fill up a high school gymnasium, are signs that she will most likely lose to Donald J. Trump on November 8th and will not be elected president of the United States of America.

If war is declared, Obama might move to suspend the election, even though that would be unconstitutional.

A wild thought I know, but, since when has that ever stopped him?

As Rush Limbaugh said, when there was speculation that Obama might suspend the 2012 Presidential Election because of the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy,

The question thus arises, can the president wave a magic wand and move the election?  What do you think, Snerdley?  Why not?  He doesn’t have the constitutional mandate.  He didn’t have the constitutional mandate for Obamacare, either.  He didn’t have the constitutional mandate to award amnesty to the kids of a million illegals, but he did it. Now, the Constitution is very clear on when presidential elections are, and to change that, you would have to amend the Constitution, and there isn’t time.  That’s not the question.  The question is, would that stop a statist like Obama?  Let me ask you this.  I want you all to just see if you can, off the top of your head, at any time in American history has anything canceled an election?  One time.  And it was a local election, and it happened on September 11th, 2001, in New York City.  Local New York City elections were suspended because of 9/11.  Those elections were not federally Constitutionally mandated. 

We had every election on schedule, on time in the Civil War, during World War I, during World War II. There hasn’t been a time.  But the question is, does that matter?  If The One wants to change the election — can you see him going on TV — I mean, after all, look who’s gonna be affected here.

…Now, of course by law, Obama cannot move Election Day. At least according to Section 7, Chapter 1, Title 2 of the US Code. I’ll read that to you: “The Tuesday next after the first Monday in November in every even-numbered year is established as the day for the election in each of the states and territories of the United States of representatives and delegates to the Congress commencing on the third day of January next thereafter.”

So he can’t move it. It’s in the Constitution; it’s in the United States Code. He cannot move the election. But it has not stopped him. The law has not stopped him in other things.

As the brilliant political cartoon by the talented A.F.Branco shows, the Main Stream Media is playing the role of the little Dutch Boy, who stuck his finger in the dam to keep his town from flooding.

However,, once again, thanks to the “New Media” and its “Citizen Reporters”, Americans are finding out the depth of Obama and Clinton’s corruption and collusion, which the DOJ and the FBI purposefully kept hidden from the American People.

If the “dam” holding back the full story contained in those e-mails busts wide open, the resulting flood of information would mean the end of Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Aspirations and, ultimately, the end of the Democratic Party, itself.

And, all those involved, including President Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) cannot allow that to happen…at any cost.

Victory Through “Social Media”: The Tanking of Target and the Clinton Campaign (A KJ Saturday Morning Analysis)

August 27, 2016

2014-05-06-socialmediaTHESE 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

Fortune.com recently reported that

Target (tgt) is spending millions to add private single-stall locking bathrooms at many of its stores as it looks to reverse a drop in shopper traffic, some of which may have been caused by the retailer’s transgender-friendly bathroom policy.

In April, the discounter said on a blog that transgender workers and customers could use the restroom aligned with the gender they identify with, wading into a national controversy and raising the ire of part of its clientele. The move led to a purported boycott of Target by at least one million customers, many of whom argued that Target’s policy would increase sexual assaults.
 
While many retailers have the same policy, including Macy’s m and Barnes & Noble bks , Target planted its flag on the issue in a blog post in which it explained the policy by saying “inclusivity is a core belief at Target.”
 
Though company executives downplayed the impact of the backlash in May when discussing first-quarter results, and again on Wednesday to go over its second-quarter numbers, which included its first drop in shopper traffic since early 2014, Target is making concessions to customers displeased with the bathroom policy. So Target is spending $20 million to add private bathrooms that can be locked.
 
“It’s clear that some of our guests like and some dislike our inclusive bathroom policy,” Target chief financial officer Cathy Smith told reporters on a media briefing. The vast majority of Target stores already have the single-stall bathrooms but the retailer will add them to more locations by November, and then again after the holiday season, which it doesn’t want to disrupt with repairs, and be done by March.

Though Smith did not say whether the backlash had cost it some business, the announcement of the bathroom policy came at a time pressure on Target was already building from a number of directions. For one thing, Target lost quite a bit of shopper traffic in the second quarter because of the disruption from the transition of the pharmacy business it sold last year to CVS Health cvs . (CVS has undertaken an aggressive marketing campaign to lure customers to its pharmacies within Target stores.) Target also got dinged by a 20% drop in Apple aapl products and customers not taking to its fresh grocery offering.
 
So the last thing Target needed was to alienate any of customer base, given that it is a $75 billion-a-year retailer that caters to a wide swathe of America, including socially conservative shoppers.
 
“We are not satisfied with our second quarter traffic and sales performance,” Smith said. Stepping back a bit on a controversial move is one way Target is trying to fix that. 

What has happened to Target is the same thing that always happens to businesses who decide to acquiesce to the demands of the vocal political minority in this country known as Modern American Liberals.

The “Tanking of Target” is a direct result of an overestimation of the economic impact of American Liberals and an underestimation of the economic impact of average Americans.

As Rev. Franklin Graham recently said,

When over a million people sign a pledge to boycott, that’s a loud and clear message Target shouldn’t have a problem understanding — biological men do not need access into women’s bathrooms or dressing rooms.

By the way, the thunderclap that you just heard was the sound of the  butt cheeks of the radical segment of that 24% of America’s population that I just referred to, slamming together in unison.

You often hear of these activists, who are a part of the 24% of , who identify themselves as “Liberals”, referred to as the “Hive-mind”, because most of the time, they present themselves in public and on the internet, including Facebook Political Pages, as being in lockstep with one another, regurgitating “the Party Line”, about each and every Hot Button Political Issue, resembling the brainwashed Proletariat of the old Soviet Union.

As  has been affirmed to me lately, during my surfing of the web, including Facebook Political Pages and websites, Modern American Liberals constantly live in a state of denial.

They respond as if you have told them that you shot Ol’ Yeller, when you inform them that Liberalism is still the minority political belief in America, even (and especially) after the 7 1/2 year reign of King Barack The First.

This salient fact explains why CNN and MSNBC constantly trail Fox News in the television ratings polls.

It also explains their ongoing massive propping up through the use of blatant propaganda of the Presidential Campaign of Hillary Clinton.

Just like the cockamamie idea to allow biological men in women’s public restrooms, the idea of allowing a morally and ethically challenged congenital liar with obvious serious health issues, who is as far removed philosophically from the overwhelming majority of Americans, that she might as well be the President of China, XI Jinping’s Handmaiden, makes average Americas out here in America’s Heartland want to hurl.

Which, by the way, is quite evident when you compare actual images of the size of Donald J. Trump’s overflowing Campaign , numbering in the thousands, compared to the under-attended ones of Hillary Clinton, which are lucky to draw one hundred.

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.

As the past several years have showed, this minority, buoyed by money from this “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 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 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.

Modern American Liberals are hoping to continue this “New Fascism” through a “Coronation” on Inauguration Day 2017 of Hillary Clinton.

Unfortunately for them, as the last few weeks have shown, and as I have documented, Americans have become our own “reporters” thanks to the “New Media”.

Americans are now living in a  time when the Main Stream Media’s blatant propaganda is no longer believed at face value, as the evidence which refutes it is appearing in the live videos and photographs being shared on Facebook and other Social Media.

Average Americans are winning the war against the “New Fascism” of the Tyranny of the Minority by the sharing of information through Social Media.

As the Executives at Target found out the hard way,

Information is the oxygen of the modern age. It seeps through the walls topped by barbed wire, it wafts across the electrified borders. – Ronald Reagan

The 2016 Presidential Election: MSM Propaganda VS Social Media and the “Speed of Reality”

August 2, 2016

19300001338456131339201169760propaganda:  the spreading of ideas, information, or rumor for the purpose of helping or injuring an institution, a cause, or a person. ( “Media’s Use of Propaganda to Persuade People’s Attitude, Beliefs and Behaviors”, web.stanford.edu )

Last night, Realclearpolitics.com reported the following story…

Donald Trump hits the media, particularly CNN, ‘the Clinton News Network,’ at a campaign rally in Harrisburg, Penn. Monday night.

“We have a media that is so dishonest,” Trump said. “These are among the most dishonest people you will ever, ever meet.”

“We are going to punch through the media,” he said. “We have to.”

Trump tonight:

TRUMP: These are among the most dishonest people you will ever, ever meet. These people — you know, I’ve had days where I have said, ‘Boy, this was a great day. I’ll look forward to seeing it tonight or tomorrow and it’s brutal.’ And I say, ‘What happened?’

We are going to punch through the media. We have to! The New York Times is totally dishonest. Totally dishonest. The Washington Post has been a little bit better lately but not good. By the way The New York Times, which is failing badly. I call it ‘The Failing The New York Times.’ Every story that they write is a hit job. I could do the greatest thing in the history of the world. I could come up with a cure for the most horrible disease in the world and they give me a front-page horrible, horrible story. The New York Times is very dishonest but it will be out of business soon. I hope. It will be out of business. It will. Really dishonest reporters. Not all of them, but most of them.

And CNN. CNN is like all Trump all the time. All Trump all the time. You walk out of an interview and you say, ‘that was a good interview’ and then you get killed for the rest of the weekend. So they are so biased toward Crooked Hillary. You know they call it: CNN, Clinton News Network. CNN. Clinton News Network. Totally dishonest. But hopefully a lot of people aren’t watching it.

Don’t worry, Mr. Trump. We aren’t.

Now that the Democratic National Convention is over, Americans have returned to their normal viewing habits. Which means that Fox News is once again kicking the Clinton News Network’s tail., as the stats from Friday, July 29, 2016 clearly show…

Total day: FNC: 1.659 | CNN: 941 | MSNBC: 893 | HLN: 209

Primetime: FNC: 2.373 | CNN: 1.187 | MSNBC: 1.451 | HLN: 280

As I have written before, thanks to today’s 24-Hour News Cycle, Cable News Network Reporters have tossed broadcast journalism out the window in favor of political activism.

And, with the undisputed fact that the overwhelming majority of cable news reporters are flaming Liberals, this means that  news favorable to Hillary Clinton and detrimental to Donald J. Trump will be what Americans are most likely to see when they turn on CNN, MSNBC, and the News Programs of the Broadcast Channels, CBS, NBS, and ABC.

Fox News continues to lead in the ratings for the cable news channels because, quite simply, they are more “fair and balanced” than CNN and MSNBC.

Conservatism remains the political ideology of the majority of Americans.

Try as they might, Liberal reporters and pundits cannot force Americans, especially those of us in “the Red States”, to believe the propaganda that they are peddling.

Even, when a push poll by CBS/The New York Times proclaims that The Queen of Mean, Hillary Rodham Clinton, has taken a lead after the  Police Line-up that was DNC 2016.

We would rather believe our own eyes.

For example, after cancelling a stop at a furniture maker in Cleveland, Ohio, according to Jim Hoft of The Gateway Pundit,

CowG64-W8AA-HL-…Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton made a stop Sunday to speak at Imani Temple Ministry.

Less than 100 people were there to see her preach from the pulpit.
(The event was in Cleveland not Columbus.)

th5RM6A420 Meanwhile, Trump spoke to a packed house at his Cleveland Rally.

 

 

 

In this age of instantaneous communication via Social Media, Americans have become their own on-the-scene-reporters, often foiling the planned use of propaganda by outlets such as CNN, simply by being there and sharing the event with their friends on Facebook or Instagram.

That contrary and factual information is then disseminated through the use of that same “New Media” to reach Americans from coast-to-cast, nullifying slanted stories delivered through the Traditional Media, sometimes even before they are released.

In this wonderful Technological Age that we are living in, average Americans have the ability to share information at the “speed of reality” itself. A fact which is the cause of great consternation and falling ratings to those news outlets who are attempting to be the Vanguard who ushers in a Clinton Presidency.

Marshall McLuhan once wrote that

The Medium is the message.

He was saying that mass communication influences the way that we see things and that those bringing it have to be perceived as being trustworthy in order to be believed by those receiving their “message”.

Unfortunately for CNN, their history of pandering to Liberal Causes, the Democratic Party, and the Clintons, in particular, is well-documented and has led to their, as Trump remarked, being known as “The Clinton News Network”.

Equally unfortunate for them and the rest of the Liberal Media, is that fact that Americans have become our own news reporters.

And therefore, propaganda does not work as well as it used to.

…not as long as Americans stay informed.

Benghazi, the White House and the Main Stream Media: the Ties That Bind

May 13, 2013

obamaMSMLast week, I wrote that the Main Stream Media should be ashamed over the way they have ignored the story of that horrible night at the Benghazi compound, and how they have been covering for this Administration.

According to one MSM Anchor, Benghazi is just one of the national stories they have gotten wrong.

CBS anchor Scott Pelley said at a speech at Quinnipiac University that journalists “are getting big stories wrong, over and over again.”

“Our house is on fire,” said Pelley.

“These have been a bad few months for journalism,” he added. “We’re getting the big stories wrong, over and over again.”

The CBS newsreader was quick to take at least partial blame. “Let me take the first arrow: During our coverage of Newtown, I sat on my set and I reported that Nancy Lanza was a teacher at the school. And that her son had attacked her classroom. It’s a hell of a story, but it was dead wrong. Now, I was the managing editor, I made the decision to go ahead with that and I did, and that’s what I said, and I was absolutely wrong. So let me just take the first arrow here.”

And Pelley said the republic relies on the quality of the news business. “Democracies succeed or fail based on their journalism,” said Pelley. “America is strong because its journalism is strong. That’s how democracies work. They’re only as good as the quality of the information that the public possesses. And that is where we come in.”

The problem with this nation’s “Fourth Estate” is that they are no longer serving the public as reporters of current events, they are helping to shape them.

For instance, the presidents of ABC News and CBS News have a sister and brother working in the Obama administration and working on the Benghazi situation.

Last weekend, Political consultant Richard Grenell appeared on “Fox News Watch” explaining that these familial ties certainly explain why the new coverage of the murders of 4 Americans has been so lacking.

I think the media’s becoming the story, let’s face it, CBS News President David Rhodes and ABC News President Ben Sherwood, both of them have siblings that not only work at the White House, that not only work for President Obama, but they work at the (National Security Council) on foreign policy issues directly related to Benghazi. Let’s call a spade a spade.

Rhodes’ brother, Ben, is employed as Obama’s deputy national security adviser for strategic communication, and Sherwood’s sister, Dr. Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, is Obama’s special assistant, according to Newsbusters.org.

Grenell also said that CNN deputy bureau chief Virginia Moseley is married to Hillary Clinton’s deputy, Tom Nides. He is the deputy secretary of state for management and resources.

It is time for the media to start asking questions why are they not covering this. It’s a family matter for some of them.

ABC put out a report on Friday that Rhodes, brother of the CBS News president, was a key participant in the revision of the talking points that were issued after the attack and which are now subject of investigation by a House Committee.

You know what is equally as frustrating to me as a Former Collegiate Radio News Director?

The good reporters, who are still attempting to do their jobs, are under attack for “not towing the line”.

On Saturday, Patrick Howler, writing for dailycaller.com  reported that

CBS News executives have reportedly expressed frustration with their own reporter, Sharyl Attkisson, who has steadily covered the Obama administration’s handling of the Benghazi terrorist attack in Libya since late last year.

“Network sources” told Politico Wednesday that CBS executives feel Attkisson’s Benghazi coverage is bordering on advocacy, and Attkisson “can’t get some of her stories on the air.”

Attkisson, who is in talks to leave the network before her contract expires, has been attempting to figure out who changed the Benghazi talking points for more than five months.

“We still don’t know who changed talking points but have had at least 4 diff explanations so far,” Attkisson tweeted on November 27, 2012.

But on Friday, ABC News reported that the Benghazi talking points went through 12 revisions before they were used on the public. The White House was intimately involved in that process, ABC reported, and the talking points were scrubbed free of their original references to a terror attack.

That reporting revealed that President Obama’s deputy national security advisor, Ben Rhodes — brother of CBS News president David Rhodes — was instrumental in changing the talking points in September 2012.

ABC’s reporting revealed that Ben Rhodes, who has a masters in fiction from NYU, called a meeting to discuss the talking points at the White House on September 15, 2012.

“We must make sure that the talking points reflect all agency equities, including those of the State Department, and we don’t want to undermine the FBI investigation,” Rhodes wrote to his colleagues in the Obama administration. “We thus will work through the talking points tomorrow morning at the Deputies Committee meeting.”

For years, the Main Stream Media has been in bed with politicians and business moguls. While, touting objectivity, they have often following way short of that goal.

The Media really came into its own during the 80’s, with the advent of Cable Television, the Iranian Hostage Crisis, and the ascension and election of President Ronald Wilson Reagan. Their advocacy of all things Liberal became very apparent, as they attacked the greatest president of this generation, mercilessly, giving no quarter.

I believe that Reagan’s election was a wake up call to the MSM. They realized that, if let to their own devices, the American Public would elect a Conservative as president, every time. And, they just couldn’t have that. They were already in too deep to their Democratic, Progressive Masters.

So, America’s Media forsook their objectivity, choosing to help to shape current events, instead of just reporting on them, in an effort to produce outcomes which would be most beneficial to the Progressive Cause.

Now, in 2013, after propping up Barack Hussein Obama and getting him re-elected, their own hubris has given them an exaggerated sense of self-importance, as to their role in our society.

Their Achilles’ Heel , the before-mentioned hubris, blinded them to the potential of the New Media…and, that has been their undoing.

Principled reporters, such as the late Andrew Breitbart and Michelle Malkin, have turned up the heat on the MSM, by providing an alternative source through which Americans can receive news, unfiltered by those in the Halls of Power.

Hence, the flood of information coming out about Benghazi, the IRS, and other stories, which are beginning to signal (hopefully) the crumbling of The Lightbringer’s Administration

And, like the little Dutch Boy, the MSM does not know which hole to plug, in the leaking dam, first.
