Best thing is the bitchslap given to the media. they destroyed any credibility and semblance of objectivity to drag the criminal across the finish line and failed. May they all suffer in perpetuity for their brazen partisanship bullshit.
Tag: LSM fails yet again
In case you didn’t get to see it, the NYT ran a hit-piece on Trump titled “Crossing the Line: How Donald Trump Behaved With Women in Private“, where they used quotes from women to basically paint the picture that Trump was a cad. Unfortunately for the scumbags at the NYT that feel obligated to shill for democrats, and for Hillary Clinton in particular, one of the people they “misquoted” (that is me being sarcastic, because I have no doubt they lied on purpose) decided to fight back.
I guess the idiots at the NYT felt that they could lie with impunity and that since nobody in the DNC controlled media would give these people they were lying about a forum to call them out. By the time the truth comes out, it is too late because people made the wrong choices already. Let me point out that this is a tactic used to not just elect, but reelect Obama by the DNC controlled media, and thus considered very effective by these propagandists. I guess they got unlucky that one of the people they chose to lie about not only had the avenue to get the truth out, but chose to do so. Maybe people in the LSM that want to make a name for themselves should find some of these other women quoted, and see if their story checks out. My guess is that the lot of it was fabricated by the scumbags at the NYT.
Let me be clear that I wouldn’t mind real investigation into people running for high office’s personal behavior, if I for a second believed that the media actually meant to just inform the public. But the problem is that whenever you get one of the SJW hit pieces it tends to be replete with falsehoods and always targets non-democrats to push an ideology that basically is evil. If the shitheads in the LSM had vetted Obama with the same expediency and faked rigor they felt was necessary to undermine candidates like Palin, Romney, and now Trump (see a pattern there yet?), and applied the same rigor to any democrat, I think we would never see another democrat winning any election. You might think Trump is a blowhard and likely to make a mediocre president like I do, but then again, I am willing to bet money that he can’t sink to the level of Obama, and for that matter the stupidity of Sanders or the criminal behavior of any of the Clintons.
BTW, I have some advice for the NYT and rest of the DNC controlled media about finding men that treat women like sex objects and shit: if you want to do a serious hit piece, one based on truth and that targets a real scumbag that abuses women, write about Bill Clinton. No need to make up any facts there to show how much of a lowlife that dude is. But nobody at the NYT, or in the LSM for that matter, seems interested in actually writing objective pieces about members of the DNC, where we have real despicable and law breaking activity going on constantly, precisely because they feel they are protected by the media.
Remember the days when a story like this one would be national news? I remember such a voter scandal both two, and then, a decade ago, when their guy was not able to steal the election. In the end both cases turned out to be bullshit stories, but the usual DNC mouthpieces in the LSM were all screaming about voter fraud and abuse, inciting their voter base – those that vote for a living, illegal voters, dead voters, multiple-time voters, convicted fellons that shouldn’t be voting, and other such assorted criminals – to take to the streets and protest. I guess in this case the story is not news, because the right party is benefiting from the crime, and likely because if it was investigated it would turn out not to be a bullshit story. After all the left’s major reason for accusing others of bad behavior or criminal activity is projection, after all.
Then read the Yahoo story on how IS is now training pilots to fly combat aircraft:
BEIRUT (Reuters) – Iraqi pilots who have joined Islamic State in Syria are training members of the group to fly in three captured fighter jets, a group monitoring the war said on Friday, saying it was the first time that the militant group had taken to the air.
The group, which has seized land in Syria and Iraq, has been flying the planes over the captured al-Jarrah military airport east of Aleppo, said Rami Abdulrahman, who runs the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
Reuters was not immediately able to verify the report and U.S. Central Command said it was not aware of Islamic State flying jets in Syria.
U.S-led forces are bombing Islamic State bases in Syria and Iraq. The group has regularly used weaponry captured from the Syrian and Iraqi armies and has overrun several military bases but this was the first time it had been able to pilot warplanes.
“They have trainers, Iraqi officers who were pilots before for (former Iraqi president) Saddam Hussein,” Abdulrahman said.
“People saw the flights, they went up many times from the airport and they are flying in the skies outside the airport and coming back,” he said, citing witnesses in northern Aleppo province near the base, which is 70 km (45 miles) south of Turkey.
It was not clear whether the jets were equipped with weaponry or whether the pilots could fly longer distances in the planes, which witnesses said appeared to be MiG 21 or MiG 23 models captured from the Syrian military.
Emphasis mine, because people that actually know military hardware reported a different type of aircraft:
Although the report does not name the aircraft types being used, the Syrian group Jaish al-Islam captured a number of Aero L-39ZA Albatros trainer/light attack jets when it overran Al-Jarrah (also known as Al-Jirah or Kshesh) Airbase in May 2013. The Islamic State reportedly took the base from Jaish al-Islam in January.
Big difference between a Czech trainer and a MIG 21 or a MIG 23. And the important thing is the logistics. Training pilots is of no use unless they have people to maintain these old crates, spare parts to do the maintenance with, and fuel and ordinance to do anything with. Not to mention that all these aircraft wouldn’t be more than easy targets for any actual air assets operating against them or ground launched anti-air ordinance.
In short, this story is much ado about nothing, and they couldn’t even get the details right.
While everyone remains focused on what happened in Ferguson and the LSM is milking it for all its worth while presenting very little factual information – must be an election year or something, and the demcorats need something to get their voters to the polls – we get this laughable story. There are two things in the story that caught my eye. Here is the first:
A rural Mississippi man suffered life-threatening injuries and required brain surgery after he entered a Waffle House despite receiving a warning not to enter the restaurant because of the color of his skin.
The severe beating occurred early Sunday morning around 2 a.m., reports The Clarion-Ledger. Up to 20 assailants participated.
The injured man is Ralph Weems IV, a veteran of the Iraq War and a Marine. He is white.
The altercation began at about 1 a.m. when Weems and a friend, David Knighten, chose to go inside the Waffle House. They made this decision after a man in the parking lot diplomatically suggested that they should leave because the patrons inside were angry about the Aug. 9 police shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. Thus, the unidentified man explained, the restaurant would not be a safe place for two white people.
Can you imagine telling a minority something like this? Even if your intentions are as pure as the driven snow and your motive is to protect them? yeah, well that’s not the part that chafes. So fast forward a bit and you get:
ZKnighten added: “I do remember racial slurs being yelled from the crowd.”
Police failed to arrive on the scene until the crowd had dispersed.
“This does not appear to be a hate crime,” local police chief Tim Brinkley said, according to The Times-Picayune. “It’s very early in this investigation but thus far the evidence and statements suggest that a verbal altercation turned physical and somebody got hurt.”
Yeah sure Mr. police chief. Again, reverse the races of the victim and perps, and how do you think this would be playing out? Of course, this was racially motivated, and revelations like this one should leave no one with any doubt who are the ones making things worse. The last time the evil white man, oh, pardon me, the white Hispanic, was the catalyst for their push the vote agenda. I guess when you have a winning formula, you just keep going back to it.
Our police forces are over militarized and need to be restructured, but our media is a despicable political stooge of the biggest criminals to run the nation, and IMO far greater threat and problem for our democracy’s survival than the militarized agents of the nanny state. Things are only going to get worse because of these people. Don’t you trust that these collectivists or their stooges have any good intent at any time. It’s about power for these bastards, and nothing more.
I can’t help but rejoyce at the news that lefty dominated media is getting hammered.
Some 550 buyouts are to be offered at Time Warner’s Turner network this week, including a large number of those at CNN and HLN, which will lead to layoffs if they are not taken voluntarily, according to an individual with knowledge of the network’s plans.
The buyouts will come across the Turner division, with a couple of hundred expected at CNN and HLN, the individual said.
A CNN spokeswoman had no immediate comment.
IMO this is about the best sort of “Fuck You!” that can happen to these scumbag mouthpieces for the DNC.
Martin’s note also stated that the company will ”start 2015 a more streamlined, nimble and efficient company focused on driving programming, monetization and innovation, in a culture that emphasizes and rewards continuous improvement.”
That gave me a good laugh. The news will still be the same propaganda for the left that it has always been, though, so don’t worry!
This past weekend Matt Drudge of the famous Drudge Report website started a firestorm that had all the usual credentialed LSM idiots thinking they had scored a huge hit against a man they have hated for being instrumental in showing the LSM’s hypocritical status as nothing but a DNC propaganda machine. The controversy started with a tweet from Drudge about having paid what he labeled a “Liberty tax” in the case of the Obamacare penalty.
The credentialed fucking economic illiterate douchebags of course immediately accused Drudge of telling a lie, and went after him something fierce. One after another DNC propagandist stuck out their neck to call Drudge out on his “lie”, stating that people paying taxes right now are doing that for the year 2013, and thus, with Obamacare’s penal-tax only going into effect in 2014, there was no way Drudge could be telling the truth. They were having a ball, thinking themselves the superior intellects, but the facts speak differently.
See Drudge is a self-employed small business owner, and as such, is required by the IRS to file his estimated taxes quarterly, in lieu of employer withholdings:
Estimated tax is the method used to pay Social Security and Medicare taxes and income tax, because you do not have an employer withholding these taxes for you. Form 1040-ES, Estimated Tax for Individuals (PDF), is used to figure these taxes. Form 1040-ES contains a worksheet that is similar to Form 1040. You will need your prior year’s annual tax return in order to fill out Form 1040-ES.
So when Drudge filed these withholdings, he filed them for the first quarter of 2014, which means he is required to pay that Obamacare penalty tax if he didn’t purchase health insurance, as every American now is forced through, under penalty of law and with the full coercive power of the federal government to punish him or her otherwise, or risk retaliation from the tyrants running the country these days. Tyrants, I should remind you, that have shown they are quite willing to bend/ignore/abuse the law to get their political enemies, and Matt Drudge is one of the top dogs on the WH list of enemies, and make them pay for defying the will of the new Emperor.
The problem here was that the credentialed douchebags in the LSM are economic illiterate turds, more interested in protecting the emperor with no clothes on, than in getting the facts right, and they literally have no clue how the complex and idiotic tax system, especially related to Obamacare, really works. If anything, this shitstorm of stupid shows, yet again, that these idiots, like most leftards, don’t know how small businesses or self-employed people pay taxes. Why would anyone trust them when they just parrot bullshit from their masters in the DNC is something I never get.
This abortion of a bill, one that we were told had to be passed so we could find out what was in it, rammed through the donkey controlled political machine, on a purely partisan vote that required all sorts of sweetheart deals – deals that cost the US tax payers billions – to get enough votes for it to be passed, is an epic disaster. It is so toxic that the WH, in a craven display of disregard for the constitutional separation of powers, has willy-nilly made changes to its implementation, in order to avoid getting creamed at the polls in the coming election. Americans are going to be fucked over royally by this bill.
The only people making out are the few extreme cases that either had pre-existing conditions or had bad plans to begin with due to other such extraneous factors. It wouldn’t surprise me that the number of these people is less than 1 or 2% of the total population impacted. The rest of us will be hammered, and hammered hard, by this shit bill. And to top that insult to injury off, we will see drastic reductions in access and quality of coverage as well, as this thing plays out. But we are not allowed to say that, because the DNC’s propaganda arm will throw a shitfit and try its best to defend the indefensible. Fuck you communist scumbags and you power grabbing schemes and scams.
The ACA will make healthcare less more expensive and harder to get for practically all of us, but the left has no desire to let you know that. This was not about helping us, but about cementing their power over us. Don’t let them pretend otherwise. These credentialed elite have no clue how things work anyway in the real world, as you can clearly tell from therir reaction right now.
In an article, carried in Al Jazeera of all places, titled Jill Abramson talks to John Seigenthaler, we find one tid-bit of information pertinent to the recent conversation about the secretive nature of this WH – the one that claimed it would be the most transparent administration EVAH! back during the early campaign days – and the reason so many people are finally catching on that this den of thieves is up to no good. The bolded text is the question by Seiigebthaler, and the other text is Abramson’s, whom is not a conservative in any sense of the word, answer:
Let me move on to another topic in the Obama administration. How would you grade this administration, compared to others, when it comes to its relationship with the media?
Well, I would slightly like to interpret the question as “How secretive is this White House?” which I think is the most important question. I would say it is the most secretive White House that I have ever been involved in covering, and that includes — I spent 22 years of my career in Washington and covered presidents from President Reagan on up through now, and I was Washington bureau chief of the Times during George W. Bush’s first term.
I dealt directly with the Bush White House when they had concerns that stories we were about to run put the national security under threat. But, you know, they were not pursuing criminal leak investigations. The Obama administration has had seven criminal leak investigations. That is more than twice the number of any previous administration in our history. It’s on a scale never seen before. This is the most secretive White House that, at least as a journalist, I have ever dealt with.
There is a reason the that these people that promised to be the most transparent WH ever have been, and continue to be, so secretive, and it has zero to do with national security or anything positive. And before anyone starts saying this doesn’t reflect on Obama at all, let me post another part of that exchange that will make it very clear that Abramson at least admits the directive has to come from the top man:
And do you think this comes directly from the president?
I would think that it would have to. I don’t know that, but certainly enough attention has been focused on this issue that, if he departed from the policies of his government, I think we’d know that at this point.
So it makes it more difficult for The New York Times to do its job.
You can, if you like me, have paid attention to and seen the production of what the NYT claims has amounted to them doing their job, have a hearty laugh at the last Q&A there, because the evidence clearly shows that the NYT’s effort has been to provide coveer for this WH, and Obama specifically, but even the NYT is admitting that Obama is the one that has created the directive to control the flow of information.
Looks, information is key. I am not surprised to see Obama and the left think they need to control it. It’s Stalin’s dictatorship rules of control 101.
Yes Abramson, in typical lib fashion then proceeds to pretend like the Boosh administration misled them and the media on Iraq, as if the same information and arguments made by Boosh’s people to them was also not what came from the Clinton administration, or for that matter every other intelligence organization on the planet, which shows her lib creds. It’s the typical need to throw the lib audience a bone after you point out how fucked up one of their heros is. The left remains obsessed with rewritting this chapter of history, and I suspect the reason theya re doubling down now is so Hilllary can claim her vote to go into Iraq was because she was lied to. That would give the rabbid leftoids an out come 2016.
The NYT gets a two-fer. They play hardball with Obama, pretending that they have actually been doing their job, and they get to set up a narrative that benefits the next donkey candidate, another criminal and liar, they are already hard at work shilling for. Par for the course for the NYT.
Some of the DNC propagandists in the LSM are apparently wising up to the fact that not only does this WH not consider them as partners, but that they are considered as nothing but tools to be used and abused, and they are now somehow indignant.
Two truths rule the relationship between a president and the White House media in modern times.
1) The media will always want more access, no matter how much they get.
2) Presidents and their image-makers, especially those chief executives in the most trouble with the least confidence, will always seek to control the flow of news. Particularly images of the chief executive, which last far longer than mere words.
What makes the current festering feud between the press corps and Jay Carney of news interest is the now-familiar disparity between Obama’s over-blown promises and his chronically underwhelming delivery on those vows. Sentient Americans will remember Obama’s vow that his would be the most transparent presidential administration in history. Yeah, right. Remember how ObamaCare was going to be written wide-open on C-SPAN? Uh-huh.
Yeah, the main legacy of this WH will be the absolute disregard for either the truth or reality in their craven pursuit of power. It’s at a banana republic level, and the damage they have caused is banana republic level of incompetence and abusive. But the fact is that the press is why they are getting away with this despicable behavior. I know the question gets old, but does anyone see the press carrying the ball for someone from the other party even 1/10th as much as they do for these scumbags, if they belonged to the other party?
A problem with Obama’s rhetorical reality, often enabled by a complicit media since 2009, is that when the president says something, as far as he’s concerned, it is The Truth. You know, like keeping your doctor and health insurance if you like them. “Period.” Dozens of times. The Chicagoan is so surrounded by sycophants and access czar Valerie Jarrett that no one has the chutzpah to describe the discordant reality to The Boss.
It’s beyond the fact that these shitbags can’t drop to their knees and suck Obama and donkey dick often enough: it’s the fact that they are helping evil people destroy the country. Marxists suck ass. So now they are mad. But are they mad at something of consequence?
The media’s simmering unhappiness with this chronic violation of the government’s social contract with a free press boiled over last week during a briefing by Jay Carney. He’s one of many media members hired by the Obama team (including, don’t forget, former chief strategist David Axelrod, also ex-Tribune).
The confrontation was ignited by a stinging op-ed by Santiago Lyon, head of photography for the Associated Press. Using words like “manifestly undemocratic” and “hypocritical defiance of the principles of openness and transparency he campaigned on,” Lyon explained how Obama’s tactics work and denounced the pol’s systematic practice as far beyond normal procedures.
“By no stretch of the imagination are these images journalism,” Lyon wrote. “Rather, they propagate an idealized portrayal of events on Pennsylvania Avenue.”
That’s it huh? These lying and manipulative fucks are destroying the economy through wealth redistribution policies that are beyond despicable. Case in point the disastrous healthcare takeover by government and the fact that we have not seen a budget from the Senate in 5 years. As a direct result of their economic policies we see more and more people ending in part-time jobs, if they are lucky enough to keep working, and the middle class being destroyed by their wealth redistribution schemes. All while the connected rich, their buddies, are raking it in faster than ever. And the insane spending and money printing so they can mask the effects of their insane Keynesian bullshit policies? Yeah, that’s not a problem to worry about at all, as the country drowns in debt and a devalued currency, while they keep artificially hiding the inflation their policies cause. This will all end well for the little guy, I am sure.
These scumbags are also using the politically motivated and partisan controlled government agencies like the IRS and the DOJ, to punish those they deem as their political enemies, leaving us in a country with one set of rules for them and another for us serfs. And the abuse goes on and on. Whatever purely political scheme to rob tax payers of money that they couldn’t pass in congress, for fear of political retribution, they just have their agencies like the EPA do by fiat, in the most illegal and corrupt manner possible. Heck, they even use these agencies to funnel enormous amounts of tax dollars to agencies that use whatever convenient cover they created to hide the fact that our government is just enabling a wealth transfer under the guise of doing something else, and we don’t hear about this theft unless there is an epic failure involved (Solyndra).
And let us not forget how they are abusing the intelligence capabilities available to our country, on a level that the people they previously accused of tyrannical behavior could not even dream of, of all things to spy on law abiding Americans, whom they also want to disarm, despite the 2nd amendment protection from them doing just that. We are now all enemies of the state and they have set up the mechanism to target us should we cross whatever line they feel warrants putting us uppity serfs back in our place.
The list of abuses by the left and this WH goes on and on. And yet, the LSM now is finally indignant, not for any of these reasons, but because this WH won’t let them publish whatever pictures they want. Yeah, sure: our republic is in good hands. This is the bed the media made for themselves, and now they are uncomfortable sleeping in all the wet spots. Fucking douchebags.
I have to admit I missed this tragic event when it happened, and was wondering why the usual suspects in the LSM were not reporting the story 24/7 and demanding the 2nd amendment simply be ignored. It looks like most of the stuff the anti gun left loves about these stories was there:
A TEENAGER who may have had a grudge against a teacher opened fire with a shotgun at a Colorado high school, wounding two students before killing himself. Quick-thinking students alerted the targeted teacher, who quickly left the building. The scene unfolded on the eve of the Newtown massacre anniversary, a sombre reminder of the ever-present potential for violence in American schools. Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson identified the shooter on Friday night as 18-year-old Karl Halverson Pierson. The shooter entered Arapahoe High School armed with a shotgun and looking for a teacher he identified by name, Sheriff Robinson said. “(The teacher) knew he was the target and he left that school in an effort to try to encourage the shooter to also leave the school,” the sheriff said. “That was a very wise tactical decision.”
OK so it looks like the one thing missing is deaths. So maybe that was why the LSM was not all over this story and we couldn’t be left alone by the gun grabbers. Maybe I say, because if you keep reading, I think, you find out precisely why the LSM has dropped the story:
Pierson has been described as a dedicated and bright student from a religious family who attends Bible study meetings, leaving those that knew him shocked. “They’re just a normal middle-class family, like many of the families around here,” neighbour Diane Shea said. Thomas Conrad, who had an economics class with the gunman, described him as a very opinionated Socialist.
That bold section there is why this story never got legs. Remember, the LSM needs the narrative to be about the evil conservatives and such, but despite the fact that this low life was supposedly a religious person, which they definitely would have loved to use, it turns out he is a unicorn fart sniffer too. And that is the end of that story. Now if they could have only linked him to the Tea Party like their marching orders tell them they should, then this story would have some legs…
Do not want to minimize this tragedy, but I simply feel that the blatant bias of the LSM should not garner them a pass on despicable behavior. And you can bet you ass that this story is not getting 24/7 coverage because they think it isn’t a big story, but because they think it is a story with the wrong components.
