The trials, tribulations and distortions of the Mainstream Media

Sean Penn Needs To Be Noticed…

… So he uses the old Joycelyn Elders tactic.

Ms. Elders was Surgeon General under Bill Clinton. She also hungered for notice. She found the perfect way to make an obscure bureaucrat into the talk of the airwaves. She openly promoted teaching masturbation.

Now Mr. Penn has done it as well. On a late night TV show he voiced his support for Hillary Clinton this way:

“We Either Go With Clinton or ‘Masturbate Our Way Into Hell’”

Naturally, the only thing that was noticed by media and audience types was the one forbidden word. If he’d supported Clinton any other way no one would have noticed.

Be Aware Of Fake News Sites

There is news that the left has put up many websites that are designed to deceive conservatives. It may have been one of them that released the news flash before the Clinton/Trump debate that Lester Holtz is a registered Republican.

Any way, Zionists for Trump has created some lists of misinformation sites. They also link to other groups who are doing the same thing. First on their list of political sites is ‘NationalReport.net‘. An example of the stories there is this:

“Sarah Palin Calls Wilma Flintstone “America’s Most Admired Woman””

sarah-palin-ap_681135284657-600x394

Doesn’t sound like much of a threat to conservatives but it seems to be humorous to Progressives.

‘Targeted, Exposing The Gun-Control Agenda’, One Night Only – Tomorrow

Directed by a 22 year-old millenial, Jesse Winton.

The motivation to make this project was less about guns in and of themselves and more about the problems that I was seeing with our government and where we’re going, and the type of borderline tyrannical government that we’re dealing with today and the continual violation of the Constitution and civil liberties,” Winton explained.”

New York Post: Keith Lamont Scott Bought His Gun From A Burglar

It won’t change a thing. The rioters will still holler, “It was a book”.

The pistol that police said was in the possession of Keith Lamont Scott (right).

The man shot dead by cops in Charlotte was in possession of a gun he had bought from a burglar who stole it during a residential burglary, according to a report.

The burglar admitted he sold the gun to Keith Lamont Scott, 43, who was shot Sept. 20 by a Charlotte-Mecklenburg cop when officers noticed him with marijuana while they were serving a warrant on someone, sources told WBTV. Authorities have not released information about the alleged burglar.”

Colleges Going To New Lengths To Prepare Students For Real-Life Adulthood

“Colleges Introduce Ball Pits for Infantilized Students”

Saint Mary’s College of California will bring a ball pit to campus on Oct. 3, as part of its Mental Health Awareness and Campus of Caring Week.

[…]

Last semester, the University of Central Florida included a ball pit as part of its Social Justice Week. “The campus community will have an opportunity to enter a ball pit with another person and have an engaging conversation about a variety of social justice topics,” the event page said.

Texas Tech University also got a ball pit, which it put in its “free speech area,” as part of its Diversity Week in March 2016.”

The Racial Divide Is So Entrenched It Can Not Be Crossed

It’s easy for a white person like me to come up with a glib, un-thought-out proposal for a solution to the divide between white people and people of color in the United States. It is so easy everyone is doing it – and they are all wrong. There is no solution that is possible.

Senator Tim Scott

Senator Tim Scott

The feelings that black folks have that the police are targeting them is true. It has basis in fact. US Senator Tim Scott, Republican from South Carolina, does not have a dog in the fight. He is a successful American. He is trusted by his constituents. But he recently told us that he was stopped by police seven times in one year. One can make excuses for why this happened but the truth is that a black man in a fancy car in a wealthy neighborhood, like where Senators live, causes many police to want to take a second look.

So, yes. There is something behind the fear of police. It’s legitimate.

What’s not legit is the way political leaders use this and add lies to it, to create more than fear. They are creating anger and they are putting thoughts of violence in the heads of young people. Even supposedly reasonable black leaders are refusing to consider facts. Like this:

On a Fox show, some old white guy was trying to explain to Juan Williams that the reason blacks get shot by cops is that blacks commit an outlandish amount of crime. He tried to explain how 3% of the population, committing 40% of the crime, is going to have a disproportionate amount of police interaction. Juan Williams is innumerate, so he could not grasp the math. He just kept insisting the cops like shooting black people.

There was something about the irritated look on the face of Juan Williams that bugged me. The old honky was trying to respectfully explain the mathematical reality of crime in America. Blacks are 13% of the population, but they account for more than half of all crime. Most of that crime is against black people. This is public information that is easy to verify. Yet, Juan had a look on his face like the old honky had just farted. You could tell that he was thinking, “How dare this guy say such things?”

White Americans don’t understand the divide. Like the example above they try to make sense of it but no one is listening. And those who do listen refuse to allow that kind of talk. It has made whites unable to have a discussion. As soon as they start someone shuts them down dramatically. Here is an instance:

“U.S. Rep. Robert Pittenger was asked what grievance the protesters have

He replied demonstrators simply ‘hate white people for being successful'”

[…]

The North Carolina Democratic Party released a statement saying Pittenger’s remarks were inexcusable and racist.

[…]

He later released a statement apologizing and saying that his anguish over the situation led him to give a response he regretted.”

From the UK Daily Mail

There is no doubt that Rep. Pittinger chose his words poorly but, still, there is no chance he could start a sympathetic discussion. It’s just not allowed.

Here is another attempt to make sense of a senseless situation:

Even with a black President, and former black Secretaries of Defense and State, with black Supreme Court justices and Martin Luther King Jr. as our official American Gandhi, black discontent roils. It does so not because of poverty, but because of the denial of pride.

For African-Americans, or any other population, to have pride in their nation they need to know it was founded by them, designed for them, and ruled by them since its creation. They need to have a sense of belonging that comes only from being the group that is the nation, and not one group of many, especially not one whose original utility was as chattel labor.”

That argument breaks down when you consider the other people who have come to America. Jews, Poles, Irish, whatever. They had the same reasons to not feel pride. But they assimilated and do not have the troubles that blacks have.

No one can affect the anger within the black community. Every attempt is rebuffed.

Now It’s ‘The Charlotte Uprising’

A couple of things went through my head while reading to the list of demands below from the protesters in Charlotte, N.C..

First, how can we create an uprising? I’d like to demand free 5.56 and 7.62×51 ammunition.

Second, I say capitulate to the list of demands but for only a small period of time and only within city limits. Give them about five days but warn peaceful residents ahead of time. After five days send in front end loaders, dump trucks, and water trucks to clean up the mess.

Good lord. They want the funding for the police department to be cut off. They want anarchy but they want it to be safe – for them. Then they can go around shooting people, knifing them, looting stores and houses, and burning whatever.

It will never happen. These children need to be protected from themselves.

I do like the idea of unlimited free ammo, though.

Beards Work Both Ways

Not many are asking why a Muslim closely connected to the Muslim Brotherhood wound up marrying a Jewish Congressman.

“Dear Ann, So Why Would A Musloid Brotherhood Operative Marry the World’s Most Repulsive Jew?”

Huma and the jerk

Huma and the jerk

The whole Abedin-Weiner marriage was a scam from the get-go. Weiner is what is called a “beard”. A “beard” is the fake spouse of a sex pervert (of either sex) looking to cover their sodomitical ways. Now, what we have with Abedin and Weiner is a SECONDARY “beard” dynamic, namely the covering of Abedin’s status as a Musloid Brotherhood operative. When Abedin went from being the concubine of not just the First Lady and “co-president” of the U.S., to being the concubine and top consigliere (think Tom Hagen, folks) of a U.S. Senator, then Secretary of State, then anointed next “president of the united states”, she needed cover, and quick. She needed cover for her sodomitical relationship with Hillary Clinton AND cover for her Musloid Brotherhood position. Huma Abedin needed to marry a Jew. Two birds, one stone.

[…]

Oh, and by the way, you know who “officiated” at the Abedin-Weiner wedding, don’t you?

William. Jefferson. Clinton.”

The Department Of State Is Still Protecting Hillary Clinton’s Fat, White… Whatever

This is how politicians do it. They lie and then they get others to support them.

“Many recovered Clinton emails won’t go public before election”

A federal judge has set a schedule that will only publish 1,050 pages of recently recovered material (out of roughly 10,000 pages) by November 4th, mere days before the US presidential election on the 8th. The Department has promised to process 500 pages per month, so you won’t get the full scoop until well after the next president takes office.”

Running A Restaurant Is Hard

Even if you don’t open until afternoon it takes 12-16 hours a day and seven days a week. Restaurants are traditionally closed on Mondays. That’s when the owner does hiring, stocks up on paper products, meat, fresh vegetables, etc..

It is very hard to compete with others who are willing to work as hard as you do. Most restaurants fail.

That’s why it doesn’t make sense that a restaurateur would chase away people who want to eat. But that’s just what Anne Verrill is doing in Portland Maine. Maybe she is tired of the long days.

She looks like a sweetie.

... the only thing I want to teach my children is love

… the only thing I want to teach my children is love

Diners at the Grace restaurant sit under a vaulted ceiling and stained-glass windows in a former Methodist church built in the 1850s. Its cool, spiritual chic comes with a catch: No one who owns an assault rifle — or even supports the right to own one — is welcome.

Grace’s owner, Anne Verrill, posted that dis-invitation on Facebook shortly after a June 12 shooting rampage at an Orlando nightclub killed 49 people. Verrill was outraged at yet another mass shooting, this time the worst one on US soil by a single assailant, and she had had enough.

On her post, Verrill attached a picture of an assault rifle and wrote: “If you own this gun, or you condone the ownership of this gun for private use, you may no longer enter either of my restaurants, because the only thing I want to teach my children is love.”

“Dead people voting in Colorado”

Local officials in Colorado acknowledged “very serious” voter fraud after learning of votes cast in multiple elections under the named of recently-deceased residents.

A local media outlet uncovered the fraud by comparing voting history databases in the state with federal government death records. “Somebody was able to cast a vote that was not theirs to cast,” El Paso County Clerk and Recorder Chuck Broerman told CBS4 while discussing what he called a “very serious” pattern of people mailing in ballots on behalf of the dead.”

Authorities are looking for this man after the shooting at the mall.

(CNN)A man carrying a rifle entered a Macy’s store at a mall in Washington state, shot dead four women and a man, and vanished into the night, police said.

Authorities believe only one person fired the shots Friday night at Cascade Mall in Burlington, about an hour north of Seattle.

A search is underway for an armed man who headed toward Interstate 5 after the attack, said Sgt. Mark Francis, a spokesman for the Washington State Patrol.”

“How is this not classified?”

This is a quote from Huma Abedin Weiner. She said it when she learned that Clinton’s e-mail system was getting mail from President Obama using a fake name or pseudonym.

Hillary Clinton has maintained that she did not send or receive classified documents via her personal, unsecured, server. The fact that she was getting stuff from the President puts the lie to that.

humahillary2

President Barack Obama used a pseudonym in email communications with Hillary Clinton and others, according to FBI records made public Friday.

The disclosure came as the FBI released its second batch of documents from its investigation into Clinton’s private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.

The 189 pages the bureau released includes interviews with some of Clinton’s closest aides, such as Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills; senior State Department officials; and even Marcel Lazar, better known as the Romanian hacker “Guccifer.”

In an April 5, 2016 interview with the FBI, Abedin was shown an email exchange between Clinton and Obama, but the longtime Clinton aide did not recognize the name of the sender.

“Once informed that the sender’s name is believed to be pseudonym used by the president, Abedin exclaimed: ‘How is this not classified?'” the report says.”

US Army Fires Another General

A decorated soldier who was given command responsibility is being fired. He is not the first. I wonder what it takes nowadays to be deemed undesirable.

“Army Suspends 1st Infantry Division Commander Amid Investigation”

The U.S. Army has suspended the commander of the 1st Infantry Division amid an investigation into the general, a spokesman said.

Maj. Gen. Wayne Grigsby “has been suspended from duties as commander of 1st Infantry Division based at Fort Riley, Kansas,” Col. Patrick Seiber, a spokesman for the service at the Pentagon, said in a statement Friday.

“He is currently the subject of an official investigation and we cannot comment further at this time,” Seiber added.

In July, USA Today reported Army Maj. Gen. David Haight was fired from his job running operations and plans at U.S. European Command earlier this year after a report surfaced that he led a double life as a “swinger.””

‘Peaceful’ Protests In Charlotte, North Carolina

Here are a few facts about them. They are not as ‘Peaceful’ as some would have you believe.

From Zero Hedge:

Stealing and looting cash registers from local businesses is not a legitimate form of protest
A “protester” shooting another “protester” is not a legitimate form of protest.
Physically attacking reporters is not a legitimate form of protest.
Throwing rocks off bridges at passing vehicles full of families is not a legitimate form of protest
Beating up innocent people in parking lots because they’re white is not a legitimate form of protest.
Smashing up apartment windows where black people live to “protest” in favor of ‘Black Lives Matter’ is not a legitimate form of protest.
Trashing your own neighborhood is not a legitimate form of protest.
Looting the Charlotte Hornets team store so you can steal basketball merchandise is not a legitimate form of protest
Attempting to hijack cars and terrify their innocent occupants is not a legitimate form of protest.

From Doug Ross:

1. There’s a Black President
2. There’s a Black Congressman
3. There’s a Black Mayor
4. There’s a Black District Attorney
5. There’s a Black Chief of Police
6. The officer involved in the shooting was Black
7. The victim perp was Black

So whose fault is it when the perp gets taken out?

The university is committed to academic freedom, freedom of speech, and diverse viewpoints, all of which are important for an institution of higher education and the free exchange of ideas,” she wrote. “My colleagues and I in the university’s leadership support peaceful disobedience and all forms of free speech, but we do not support violence or language that encourages violence.”

She called the concerns about the tweet from students and staff, along with those from citizens across the country, “serious and legitimate.”

“… The Seduction Of Easy Answers…”

While reading an article in Financial Resistance titled, “7 Signs Chicago is a Now a “Third-World” City”, I came across this gem:

“4. Declining Industry”

This is the aftermath of free trade agreements which export jobs overseas, destroy middle class jobs, and enrich corporate elites.

This is the aftermath of free trade agreements which export jobs overseas, destroy middle class jobs, and enrich corporate elites.

Chicago is one of the many “rust belt” American cities that have seen a major decline in their manufacturing industry. Just like Detroit, free trade agreements have ravaged Chicago’s industrial core, leaving thousands unemployed and destroying much of the middle class. While there are many reasons for Chicago’s economic decline, “free trade” is one of the biggest factors.”

RD Walker told in a comment to a post below of a prayer that asks for protection from easy answers. This writer is a good example of what the prayer refers to.

Obviously, the writer has taken a position against free trade. The way he presents it, though, is diabolical and wrong. Why do you think he is wrong?
