Wait, but

14 Aug

I’m told over and over that this kind of stuff doesn’t happen! At least (the “limited modified hang out” position) that it is not significant. Yeah, I’m just sure that this is an isolated event and was by no means part of a broader practice. Yeah, THAT’s the ticket! <sheesh, how stupid do you think I am?>

Look, you may only see one cockroach. But, of course, there is not just one around. Yeah, the guy was caught in this case. But it is pretty clear that there is a structure there. And that structure is not there just for decoration. DUH! It’s not easy or typical to get caught for voter fraud, let alone be punished. So when the cost goes down, the frequency goes up. It’s elementary economics.

Oh, and did you notice that this guy fraudulently voted for Democrats? That also is typical. Conservatives don’t usually engage in voter fraud–Democrats do. Heaven help you if you are a Republican in a tight race! You have to beat your opponent, but you also have to cover the fraudulent votes. If it’s close…

You can read all about this in the New York Times. It is an above-the-fold front page blockbuster. Oh wait, no you can’t! Must not be news that is fit to print…

 

You know about that DNC “hack”

11 Aug

that was the Russians trying to help Trump? Yeah that Russian story is a fake. It’s false. It’s a total fabrication.

Here’s a quote:

There was no hack of the Democratic National Committee’s system on July 5 last year—not by the Russians, not by anyone else. Hard science now demonstrates it was a leak—a download executed locally with a memory key or a similarly portable data-storage device.

So, we need to get rid of Mueller and his mindless attack dogs, right? There is just no “there” there!

It was always a stupid story, and was far too self-serving to actually be true. This is a great opportunity to fire Mueller.

Uh, just watch. The mindless MSM Myrmidons won’t even mention this…

Folks,

03 Aug

THAT is a brutal beat-down. Acosta clearly doesn’t know his butt from a hole in the ground.

And THIS is the guy you trust to give you the straight scoop? Don’t be a fricken’ moron…

Just brutal!

Gee, I wonder if

31 Jul

this will get much mainstream media attention.

No, just kidding! I don’t wonder. It won’t be the top story for months and lead the nightly news, like it would be if Trump (or any Republican)  were the actor in question. Since it is a prominent Democrat from a swing state, it will be barely a blip on the MSM radar if it is even mentioned at all. DUH!

I just wish we had a watchdog media, not a yapping lapdog media. There are (at least) two ways they promulgate “fake news: The first is they make an outright false claim. But the second is just that they fail to talk about events that are hurtful to their position. Both are forms of dishonesty and deception. There is just NO reason to believe the yammerings of the MSM. A lie is an effort to deceive, even a tacit one. No one has ever given me a reason to trust the MSM–it has always been assumed as a “given” but never actually argued. So tell me, just why should I believe them? And try to avoid the logical fallacy of “appeal to authority.” I’m not buying.

Oh, I found a photo of the MSM and their response to Trump:

They.. have… crazy eyes!

So just why did the gov’t allow his wife and kids to leave the country? It’s almost like there was collusion somewhere!

But the Democrats will tell us to move along and that there is nothing to see here. Nice. There is no voter fraud. Democrats care about the poor and minorities and Republicans don’t. There aren’t the ‘droids you are looking for…

I don’t know about you, but I’ve got a bellyful of Lefty hypocrisy. I’ve had enough. I am not susceptible to this “Old Jedi Mind Trick.” No wonder Trump won.

 

This should tell you

21 Jul

what you need to know.

It shows the HUGE gap between what the regular people care about and what the MSM care about.

The bottom line is that they don’t care about the same things you care about. For example, only a small fraction of people give a crap about the whole Russia/Trump poppycock, yet that is exactly what the MSM focuses on.

The MSM are rapidly becoming irrelevant, and that is largely a product of their own behavior. They have soiled their own bed, and yet they can’t even recognize that they need to change the sheets.

We need to understand the gameplan, here.

21 Jul

This is the strategy on the part of the Democrats. They are playing a rather subtle game (with the help of their MSM co-conspirators) , and hardly anyone is catching on. Part of what the Trump Jr. crap does is take the focus off the gun control failures. It takes the heat off the Obamacare fiasco. It takes the focus off Obama administration corruption. We need to understand that there is a very real purpose to this. Sure, there’s no crime there with Jr. (and nothing even close to warranting impeachment of The Donald himself). But that is not the real goal. That is only frosting on the cake.

See, stuff was starting to bubble up. Stuff the Democrats would hate. The MSM was running out of materiel for a “Trump scandal” and they needed more dirty laundry. They sure as heck didn’t want to focus on his achievements. It was getting to the point that the MSM boot-lickers would no longer be able to blithely go only with things that made Trump look bad, and they simply could not tolerate that. They were still too butt-hurt from grandma getting stomped. They are just not over that particular spanking.

But we need to understand that this nonsense forces the Republicans to take their eye off the ball. It forces them to play defense rather than score points. Well, that is the point of it all. Then the Democrats can criticize that the Republicans have BOTH houses and the Presidency and yet are too incompetent to get anything done. They can’t govern! Then 2018 comes around. And then 2020…

This is the classic, “Hey look! A squirrel!” ploy.

THAT is the “meta” issue in play. If your focus is so granular, you miss what is really happening (and Democrats want you to miss it). One has to look at the broader terrain to understand what is happening.

Chicago is horrible, and Baltimore has  DOUBLE the murder rate of Chicago! And these are bastions of gun control laws. They have been run by Democrats for decades and decades. Like more than 70 years! Why isn’t this front and center on the news? Don’t Black Lives Matter?

It is because the groveling suck-up MSM is in cahoots with the Democrats and it much prefers to focus on the non-crime of Trump Jr. meeting with a Russian lawyer for 20 minutes! They are panicked at the thought of Black people being freed from the Lefty plantation. For very obvious reasons.

There is, of course, an ideological point to this. That is, in fact, almost the ENTIRE point of this. Wise people will wake up to what is really going on. If you buy what CNN and the NY Times is selling, you are getting worked. But you are also getting worked because you are taking your eye off the ball. Your righteous indignation is being “turned” in the service of the Democrats. Look at the “meta” issue, here. Don’t get so caught in the weeds that you miss the forest for the trees!

I, for one, am not fooled.

Oh, and Democrats delenda est. I have been forgetting.

It seems that Conservatives

21 Jul

are getting willing to turn themselves into Leftists (in a sense) and hammer the crap out of Lefty organizations.

But this has to be a nightmare for CNN from a business point of view. They have already suffered real damage to their reputation because of their Lefty boot-licking. But now they are facing a real public relations debacle. If they don’t handle it just right, they are hosed.

They are first and foremost a business. This is NOT good press for them. The more they stand up for what they believe, the worse the PR is.

And the issue is that Conservatives have, up to this point, been unwilling to ruthlessly hammer the opposition. But it seems they are starting to take a page out of the Left’s book.

There is a good deal of anger on the Right about how the Left has treated them. The Left needs to be careful because I think Conservatives have had just about enough. The “tender timer” has popped out of the bird, so to speak.

First Trump. Now Kid Rock. This ain’t the 1970s anymore! You can feel the anger. There is a real change going on, here. The boulder is rolling down the mountain, and it is gaining speed. It is easy to stop it in the beginning, but not once it gets a head of steam on! Let’s stop it now.

Bulldogs are famously stable. It’s hard to get them riled up. You can pull their ears and their legs and they will just roll over and go back to sleep. It takes a TON to get them activated. But they were bred to take down raging bulls by clamping down on the nose of a charging bull and NEVER letting go–their determination was legendary. This was a 40-lb dog that would take down a dangerous and threatening bull that weighs well over a ton. Once they are really riled up they are a fearsome foe. They are slow to anger, but terrifying once they get there. Conservatives are bulldogs.

Lefties, be careful, because your tactics can be used against YOU, too. You think that because Conservatives have been passive in the past, they always will. But be wise, Leftists. You don’t want to see this bulldog riled up. The Right is patient and long-suffering. But you won’t like the Right when it’s angry…

Democrats delenda est.

 

It’s a great question.

If the MSM only has its credibility to sell, what happens when they have no more credibility?

Quote: Honestly, the legacy media — CNN especially — has had a pretty bad six months. I won’t go through the whole list, but some of my favorites were when CNN reported breathlessly that Trump asked for two scoops of ice-cream at luncheons in the White House; when CNN accused Trump of inciting violence by tweeting a pro-wrestling GIF and then, following the general finger-pointing and derisive laughter at their reaction, their open threats of doxing the guy they thought made the meme; and then when the Comey testimony was coming up, reporting that “sources” were saying Comey would refute Trump’s assertion he wasn’t under investigation, only to have to retract when Comey’s written testimony was released.

See, I think that CNN and the rest of the MSM have squandered their only real asset–credibility. THESE are the wages of boosterism and sycophantic boot-licking. They are rightly seen as not trustworthy. No wonder many of us just don’t care what they (or Mueller) say about “collusion.” Maybe it’s true, but maybe it’s a steaming pile of dung. The scales have fallen from our eyes and we rightly assume that there is an agenda behind the accounts. Indeed, that is all there is! There are no “facts.”

And the problem is that according to that Post-Modernism we just can’t know the truth–they have pooped in the proverbial soup. There simply is no way to get truth from there. You can strain the soup, but that doesn’t make it palatable. In their trendy post-modern way, they say that there IS no truth, only accounts. But OK then, just why should I believe YOU over a dog-faced baboon?

Well,

18 Jul

even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while.

Let’s just say that this is a target-rich environment.

A Haitian proverb goes something like, “On a bad day even a glass of milk can crack your head open.” Yeah, sometimes the unusual and unlikely actually happens.

It’s not

AT ALL surprising.

And while it is now being carefully hidden, the man behind the curtain has been revealed. And I think it is far more important to recognize that these Lefty “Plants” are STILL in the news business. In days gone by, they would be fired for such crap. But not now.

Now, if they lied to you back then, what makes you think that NOW you are being told the truth? It seems to me that is it very unwise to assume that because you like the source, the reports are true. Just because you saw it on the Internet doesn’t mean that it is actually true.
