The curious suicide of the 4th Estate continues…apace

It’s one thing to find yourself in a hole…quite another thing to keep on digging.

But…FakeNews being what it is…

So, there’s this great economic news, brought on by the election of Donald Trump, and his deregulation efforts, the 2017 Republican taxcuts, and a new sense of confidence.

But in the storied tradition of printing the news they see fit to slant…errr…print…the NY Times epitomizes the desperate, suicidal trajectory of FakeNews gone bat-crap crazy… ‘though it appears there’s some truth in journalism…’cuz IBD won’t let their lies prevail.

Economic Boom: Media Rewrite History To Credit Obama Instead Of Trump

Investor’s Business Daily writes in scathing terms over the efforts of the NY Times to diminish any effect President Trump has had on the economy, seemingly oblivious to the Times’ own reporting about the abysmal state of the economy…throughout 2016.

“The New York Times itself described Obama’s economy this way in August 2016: “For three quarters in a row, the growth rate of the economy has hovered around a mere 1%. In the last quarter of 2015 and the first quarter of 2016, the economy expanded at feeble annual rates of 0.9% and 0.8%, respectively. The initial reading for the second quarter of this year, released on Friday, was a disappointing 1.2%.”

GDP growth decelerated in each of the last three quarters of 2016. And on January 27, 2017, after the government reported that GDP growth for all 2016 was a mere 1.6% — the weakest in five years — the Times announced that “President Trump’s target for economic growth just got a little more distant.” That same month, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office forecast growth this year would be just 1.9%.” (bold, underline emphasis added)

And yet, despite that reality described in no uncertain terms, the Times prints this on Friday…“An Economic Upturn Begun Under Obama Is Now Trump’s to Tout”

??…‘upturn begun under Obama’? Do they smoke those mushrooms, or just eat ’em?

We challenge the NY Times to explain what dynamic they believe magically transforms “GDP Growth decelerated in each of the last 3 quarters”…into an ‘economic upturn’?

No doubt, they’ll print whatever dynamic is FIT TO DISTORT. But, take heart, there’s this: “Poll: Two-Thirds of Americans Give Trump Credit for Economy”

Thankfully, it seems Americans can separate truth from FakeNews reality.

This suicide mission the FakeNews media’s on is pitiful to behold…our resentment at being lied to is overwhelmed by our disgust with what mainstream media has become.

WAIT – when did media STOP their coordinated attack against Pres Trump?

“Newspaper calls for war of words against Trump media attacks”

Yahoo News reports“A Boston newspaper is calling for a coordinated editorial response to President Donald Trump’s frequent attacks on the news media.”

We ask again…what do they mean, ‘calling for a coordinated editorial response’?

At what point do they think their coordinated efforts ever stopped?

Hey, ThugFL…put YOUR money where your protest is

Another NFL season…another ‘take-a-knee’ opportunity.

In several previous posts, we’ve exposed the lie behind their ‘America is racist’ protest, and their lies over excessive police use of force against the black community. (Heather MacDonald says it best…black incarceration rates are based on crime rate, not bigotry.)

So, provably, take-a-knee protesting during the National Anthem disrespects America.

If millionaire thugs REALLY believed what they say, they’d put some skin in the game.

That said, and in keeping with the President’s latest opinion “Trump to NFL Players: ‘Find Another Way to Protest … or Be Suspended Without Pay’” we suggest that those insisting on perpetuating a ‘racist-America, bigoted cops’ lie, at the very least…

…put their money where their protest is. SHOW US you’re willing to sacrifice…

…take a knee when the coach sends you out onto the field. Refuse to play.

Sacrifice your multi-thousand (or multi-million) dollar game-day paycheck.

FACTS have already proven you wrong, so disrespecting America is not something we should have to accept. You don’t believe facts? Make a sacrifice to show you care…

…otherwise, we refuse to honor a false, empty, disrespectful sacrifice.

If their cause is ‘just’…why do they need to wear masks?

Antifa, the Real Fascists

There’s only 1 reason to wear a mask…they plan to commit crimes of violence & chaos.

Their funding should be revealed…and the funders should be prosecuted.

Add to this demand, a note – Washington DC has just authorized a demonstration of false-flag group ‘Unite the Right’, who masquerade as alt-Right white supremacists but actually is led by an Obama-supporting/Occupy-Wall-St thug named Jason Kessler.

Their financial backers should be exposed as well. Confidential sources say it’s Soros.

It’s time we stopped this thug mentality from terrorizing our streets. The RICO Act is a very good place to start, by going after the financers and organizers of such chaos.

Lock-em up.

National Security? They don’t care about no national security…

How do these people keep getting re-elected?

“Marc Thiessen: Democrats have their own foreign espionage problem”

First, it’s 40+ House Democrats hiring spying Pakistani aides, now we’re told the Senate Democrat Feinstein, while head of the Intel committee, employed a Chinese spy.

She’s trying to downplay the whole thing, but according to Thiessen

“…it is a big deal. I asked several former senior intelligence and law enforcement officials how serious this breach might have been.

“It’s plenty serious,” one former top Justice Department official told me. “Focusing on his driver function alone, in Mafia families, the boss’s driver was among the most trusted men in the crew, because among other things he heard everything that was discussed in the car.”

A former top CIA clandestine officer explained to me what the agency would do if they had recruited the driver of a senior official like Feinstein.

“We would have the driver record on his phone all conversations that Feinstein would have with passengers and phone calls in her car. If she left her phone, iPad or laptop in the car while she went to meetings, social events, dinners, etc., we would have the driver download all her devices. If the driver drove for her for 20 years he would probably would have had access to her office and homes. We would have had the source put down an audio device in her office or homes if the opportunity presented itself. Depending on the take from all of what the source reported, we would use the info to target others that were close to her and exhibited some type of vulnerability.”

“In short,” this officer says, “we would have had a field day.” It seems improbable that Feinstein never once discussed anything sensitive in her car over a period of years…Feinstein owes the country a detailed explanation of how she let a Chinese spy into her inner sanctum. And the media should give this security breach the same attention they would if it involved Russia and the Republicans.”

FAT CHANCE.

‘Cheap talk’ Democrats pander for votes…but then lockstep once elected

 Democratic Senator Talks Moderate On Immigration While His Campaign Cozies Up To Left-Wing Radicals and that tells you all you need to know about Democrats.

They know the American public is against illegal immigration, so they ‘talk the talk’ to get votes, pre-election…then lockstep with open-border Democrats once in office.

It never fails – their Party campaigns “we can work with Trump” then doesn’t. When will the Democrat constituents (who like the direction we’re heading) wake up to this reality?

Hopefully, before November midterms.

Evidence? They don’t need no stinking evidence…

National Review Online headline “Florida Officials Contradict Senator Bill Nelson’s Claim That Russians Successfully Infiltrated Voting Systems”

“Florida election officials said…there is no evidence to corroborate Senator Bill Nelson’s(D., Fla.) claim that Russian agents successfully infiltrated the state’s voting systems.”

Since when does a Democrat need evidence?

Sneer at his tweets, but CA Democrats must admit their policies magnify wildfire/drought conditions

President Trump tweeted Aug 6th “California wildfires are being magnified & made so much worse by the bad environmental laws which aren’t allowing massive amounts of readily available water to be properly utilized. It is being diverted into the Pacific Ocean. Must also tree clear to stop fire from spreading!”

California Democrats rushed to the first available microphone, sneering at him for not knowing water wasn’t being (primarily) used on the wildfires in Northern California.

But that’s NOT what the President tweeted – it’s what they WANT you to believe he did.

The President’s right…‘massive amounts of readily available water’ AREN’T ‘properly utilized’ and ‘bad environmental laws’ are causing a huge problem, because in the areas around the wildfires where private dwellings are threatened water IS being used.

First, ‘bad environmental laws’ fueled wildfires with 129 million dead trees those laws prevented from being cleared in our California national forests, according to USDA.

Are Democrats seriously suggesting 129 million dead trees DON’T fuel wildfires?

Second, every gallon of water that IS used to fight fires adds to a drought situation the California Democrats brought on with those ‘bad environmental laws’ that fail to collect  and store the billions of gallons of water, letting it flow back out into the ocean.

Are Democrats seriously suggesting BILLIONS of gallons of un-collected water due to bad environmental law DOESN’T add to the drought situation in California?

Want some fun? Check how much of your tax-dollar goes to fire-fighting equipment as opposed to subsidies for electric cars, and bullet-trains-for-cronies…it’s sickening.

If you have access through the Wall St Journal pay-wall, read Strassel’s article.

Bottom line…they can misrepresent Trump’s tweet, but the facts speak for themselves.

Could ‘Russia-tampering’ boogeyman bite anti-voterID Democrats in the butt?

How can Democrats any longer be against voter-ID requirements?

Every day there’s another story of Democrat pundits and politicians claiming that the Russians are meddling/tampering/interfering/influencing our election process.

Elections involve 1) campaigning; 2) voting; 3) counting votes. We doubt Democrats will support regulating campaign advertising (hey, their FakeNews media controls 85%+ of that process), which leaves us with protecting the voting and counting process.

Whoops – they’ve given justification to a one-voter/one-ballot system that negates the voter fraud and tampering that can be possible with early voting and no-ID systems.

Do they realize their ‘OMG-Russia’ hype SUPPORTS voter-ID efforts in elections?
