That has to be the way our fine media betters see the Age Of Trump!.
They’re used to controlling what is said and how it’s said and can’t handle not having that control. It’s also hilarious because they just did not see this coming.
Ace’s post on this is spot on.
They feel that they are in a nightmare. If you’ve ever described a nightmare (or just a dream) to someone, you know it’s full of stuff like “And you were there, but you weren’t you, and I was at work, but it was also high school…” It’s weird precisely because familiar stuff appears unfamiliar, and what we usually experience as solid, steady, unchanging terrain — like our workplace –is now a shapeshifting landscape.
They were wholly unprepared for the reality of Trump — they never even prepared themselves psychologically for such an outcome, because it was inconceivable and absurd, and only Dumb People thought stuff like “Trump could win,” and as they’re fond of telling you, they are definitely not the Dumb People.
They are freaking the fuck out. They have to think, “THIS CAN’T BE HAPPENING!!!!!!!!!!!!!” at least 20 times a day. The total repudiation of their entire, fantasy-based, world-view is just devastating.
Americans experienced the shock of sudden almost-inconceivable horror on 9/11, but progressives experienced something even worse: The feeling that they’d been wrong their whole lives.
We lost two towers and 3000 people that day; they lost their comfortable fictions and pretenses.
Exactly. And they’ve spent the last 15 years denying that experience.
An OPEN LETTER TO CNN’S BRIAN STELTER, YOU ARE THOROUGHLY DISHONEST.
…Your ad hominem attacks about “right wing” radio host and conspiracy theory stuff … incredible.
I simply put together the stories that YOUR profession reported, on the public record…
They can’t away with lying with impunity now. Say what you want about Trump, but he made pushing back against their lies mainstream.
Which is making them losing the battle on Obama’s chicago-machine wire-tapping stuff hilarious.
Wild Weekend! says he. It certainly was, says I.
No, it’s the President learning how to play the Washington, complicit media, political hack game, and rope a dope. He’s also proving he is decent body punching brawler. He not only exposed the danger to freedom presented by powerful and misused intelligence agencies, but more importantly he exposed the willingness of some members of the American political class to use those powerful capabilities against American citizens – and against their own government. These communists are more than willing to use police state tactics while calling everyone else a Nazi or communist collaborator. This threatens the freedom of every American even the nitwits cheering on the Soros funded Obama led attempts to subvert the new administration.
Even O’Reilly is admitting this doesn’t look good for Team Minitrue or Team God-President. He tried to “Be Fair” and ignore reality, but Newt brought this up and said something like, “You know this. You just reported it!”
What’s happened really does require some thought. We know that General Flynn’s telephone conversation with the Russian ambassador was monitored, transcribed, and released to the public. Supposedly the monitoring was of the Russian which is perfectly fine. But and it is a big but. As I understand the law, conversations of American citizens in these cases are kept private and releasing the transcript in any manner is a felony.
Yup. Who tapped Flynn’s phone? Why? Where’s the warrant?
President Trump alleges that the Obama administration wire tapped Trump Tower prior to the election – searching for evidence to show Russian collusion – we know they were monitoring General Flynn. Let’s add that if they found such evidence, impeachment proceedings would have already started. Multiple newspaper accounts indicate the surveillance happened. You just need to think on that for a bit. A sitting President (and anyone who thinks he would have no knowledge of this is nuttier than squirrel turds) likely through his weaponized justice department requested FISA court orders to monitor communications of a presidential candidate from the opposing party. In comparison, this makes Watergate look like the boy scouts. It should cause every American to pause.
Newt said something about how if Russia was doing the wiretapping of a US citizen on a Presidential campaign, that’s an act of war. Then, Putin would have had to leak that to the Wash Post.
But…..Putin and Trump are butt-buddies! Oh what a tangled web they weave when they’re too lazy and sloppy to come up with good lies…uhhh…. to deceive.
Another place that reminds the NY Times of what the NY Times has reported.
Currently on the front page of the NY Times is this article, saying how Comey asked the DOJ to reject Trump’s claim of wiretapping. You guessed it… Completely unsubstantiated…
There’s just one problem with that. In January, the publication published an article that state plainly and clearly that the investigation into Trump’s campaign consisted of some wiretapping.
See, the story in January was to tie Trump to the Russians’ Hacking Of The Election!!!!!!!!, using it to prove Obama’s perfidy is just not cricket!f
Lots of people noticing this strange yet totally expected juxtaposition.
So it seems to work this way:
Press: Leaked transcripts of Trump wiretaps show Trump was being investigated by the Obama administration.
Trump: Obama wiretapped me!
Press: Transcripts? What transcripts?
Yup. Sort of reminds me of the “Illegal Aliens Are Voting” deal.
Trump: Illegal aliens are voting
‘Reporters’: Liar, there’s no proof!
Trump: I’m going to investigate to get proof.
‘Reporters’: Racist, lying hater!
If only Trump would do what people keep telling him to do.
The Trump administration has been plagued by leaks from inside the government. Yes, unelected government employees, holdovers who are apparently loyal to Obama, have been leaking classified information in order to undermine the President and limit his effectiveness…
According to Joseph DiGenova, a former US Attorney under Reagan, the CIA is aware of the identities of the leakers and has turned over those names to Attorney General Sessions, himself a victim of the lying Obama holdovers in government.
We have to fire everybody in the DO”J” GS-12 and higher and start over. Seriously. Since that’s unlikely, prosecuting these assholes to full extent of the law is a good start.
I wondered about what the hell Comey was doing, but then I read this and that made me wonder harder!
In this particular case, FBI director James Comey is said to have requested that the Justice Department refute the President’s claims of unlawful wiretaps.
As the Times itself notes, Comey himself did not deny the existence of the wiretaps, though he is the top law enforcement official in the land and fully equipped to do so.
Why didn’t Trump fire Comey? I really have no idea. That guy is so compromised and full of shit he cannot be effective. Plus, he appears to be far too political to be in the FBI. And that’s the worst part. The FBI is supposed to be above politics and this asshole keeps inserting himself into politics in a particularly slimy way, he decided to branch out from the Friday Newsdump shit. Eh, I’m sure there’s a reason. If there’s one thing I’ve decided is that Trump does have a reason for what he does.
Just to remind us that there’s a whole world getting ready to blow up, let’s look at this perplexing story.
ISIS threatened to carry out terrorist attacks against China in a new 30-minute video. The video included a child executing a kneeling prisoner with a pistol shot to the head.
This marks the first time ISIS has threatened to carry out terrorist attacks against China.
The clip shows children, purporting to be from the Uighur ethnic minority within China, undergoing physical and religious training.
The clips showed children, purporting to be from the Uighur ethnic minority within China, undergoing physical and religious training.
One militant declares to the camera, “You Chinese people who don’t understand the language of the people, we the soldiers of the Caliphate will come to you to teach you the language of weapons, to spill rivers of blood as revenge against the oppressors,” according to Vocativ.
In one scene a religious instructor asks a group of children “what is the target of the kuffar [unbelievers] and the murtadeen [apostates] when they fight us?” A child responds “they want us to go back from our religion and to be according to their religion and want us to be according to their religion.”
If they get the Uighurs riled up that could be very bad. The Chinese will treat Xinjiang the way Putin treated Chechnya and we know the ISIS terrorists will treat the Chinese the way Chechen terrorists treat… anybody not of their brand of crazy.
The funny part? Terrorists blowing up parts of China appear to be a result of Obama’s Smirt Duhplomicy!
China recently stepped up its involvement in the war on terror. They have been assisting in counter-terror border patrols in Afghanistan, Ren Guoqiang, spokesman for the People’s Liberation Army recently revealed. China also sent special advisers and other support to assist Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the Syrian Civil War.
That’s funny. Although, I had no idea China was fighting in Afghanistan.
There is mounting evidence that Chinese ground troops are operating inside Afghanistan, conducting joint counter-terror patrols with Afghan forces along a 50-mile stretch of their shared border and fueling speculation that Beijing is preparing to play a significantly greater role in the country’s security once the U.S. and NATO leave.
The full scope of China’s involvement remains unclear, and the Pentagon is unwilling to discuss it. “We know that they are there, that they are present,” a Pentagon spokesman said. Yet beyond a subtle acknowledgement, U.S. military officials in Washington and in Kabul would not respond to several detailed questions submitted by Military Times.
When did that happen? If only we had a real media instead of house organs for their chosen party we might have heard of this important development.
At first I was sorta pissed off, but it’s not like giving Iraq to Iran after we lost so many good men there. No, it’s more like us taking over in Vietnam from the French.
I wish the Chinese luck in Afghanistan. I hope they try to “Tibet” it.
I like Sabbath and I like that song, but the video and what Sabbath meant for the song make me laugh.
They think if the US gave up our nukes it would be all puppies and unicorns.
Which reminds me, invasion season is just around the corner! And with the media at war with Trump, it’s going to be difficult for him to respond.
So as it’s been for a long time now, we might be boned the rest of the world is exponentially more boned. After decades of whining at American Imperialism!!!! they’re going to find out what happens when America isn’t around and now the freaks who don’t care about life have nukes!
