Head of Journalism Organization Compares Trump to Chavez

18th February 2017

Read it.

The executive director of the Committee to Protect Journalism compared President Donald Trump to the late Venezuelan leftist dictator Hugo Chavez in a column Friday.

Guess they realize that calling him the New Hitler is getting lame.

“What does Trump have in common with Hugo Chavez? A media strategy,” Joel Simon wrote in a column for the Columbia Journalism Review.

Also in common with Kim Kardashian, Mark Zuckerberg, Barbra Streisand, and everybody elected to public office. Boy, that Chavez guy really gets around. But Joel Simon doesn’t have ‘a media strategy, oh no. Trump also puts his pants on one leg at a time, another similarity to Chavez! It’s uncanny!

Simon wrote, “Trump’s unrelenting attacks on the media and attempts to undermine its credibility and paint it as an opposition force are straight out the Latin American populists’ playbook.”

A playbook he stole from previous socialists everywhere. Let’s get our attributions right, now.

While these Latin American populist leaders are “leftist-oriented there are remarkable similarities between the two in the rhetoric they employ to mobilize supporters,” the executive director of the Committee to Protect Journalism wrote.

Perhaps because that’s because of unrelenting attacks beforehand by the media.

“In Latin America, this process was aided by the fact that the traditional media has been allied with oligarchic interests,” Simon added.

Of course, that wouldn’t apply to the New York Times, owned by the Sulzbergers, or the Washington Post, owned by Jeff Bezos. No sir, no oligarchic interests around here.

He added that, “Trump’s intent is clear. Through his relentless attacks, he seeks to create an environment in which critical media is marginalized and the truth is unknowable.”

Sounds like the DemLegHump Media coverage of Hillary. But Hillary can’t be like Chavez, that would be sexist.

The executive director of the journalism organization said that American journalists should not “take the bait” and act like the “opposition.”

Too late.

100,000 Palestinians write to Donald Trump asking him to support two-state solution

17th February 2017

Read it.

The mass letter writing campaign, organised by the independent Youth Centre for Development and Innovation in Nablus, ran for 11 days in the run up to January 20 – Mr Trump’s inauguration day.

It collected notes for the president from young Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza, those displaced from Syria to Lebanon and the diaspora to draw Mr Trump’s attention to their desire to cooperate with the US in the peace process, centre director Mohammed Abu Ras told Al-Monitor.

Since not a fucking one of them is an American voter, why he is expected to give a shit is unexplained.

Bookstores Give Americans Yet Another Reason to Root tor Amazon to Stamp Them Out

16th February 2017

Read it.

According to an article in the New York Times, independent bookstores are declaring themselves foot soldiers in the left’s so-called “resistance” against our president. Apparently, “bookstores have entered the fray, taking on roles ranging from meeting place to political war room.” Because what’s better than businesses getting political?

The article goes into many examples of bookstores taking up metaphorical arms as a squadron in the left-wing’s chaos campaign. For example, one bookstore has given out free samples of a book called “We Should All Be Feminists” by an author named Chinamanda Ngozi Adichie. “All over the country” bookstores are placing George Orwell’s “1984” and Sinclair Lewis’ “It Can’t Happen Here” in their windows. They are also apparently calling the very front display table in their stores the “#Resist table.” (Why does it need a hashtag?)

Because otherwise people wouldn’t know the Correct Thing To Think.

NYT Mag: It’s Trump’s Fault Sports Writers Can’t Just Write Sports

16th February 2017

Read it.

Kang’s opening volley – Should Athletes Stick to Sports? – is a rhetorical question. He agrees with sports media critic Bryan Curtis that it’s a moot point now. “Trump’s presidency, with its daily explosions, has made it impossible to cover pro sports, even in the simplest box-score ways, without detouring onto the White House lawn. This comes, in part, from the way basic sports coverage works. Reporters ask questions before and after every game, and when the only thing anyone wants to talk about is Trump, some of those questions will be about the president.”

But the cart’s leading the horse here! Biased media are baiting athletes with loaded questions, then claiming “the only thing anyone wants to talk about is Trump.” Later the confused Kang admits the media endlessly badgered Tom Brady about his “Make America Great Again” hat. That’s right, and Kang’s copout notwithstanding, it’s the media driving the trend, not the other way around. Sports journalist are liberal, and liberals are constantly shrinking the spaces that have traditionally been politics-free. It’s what they do.

Eminent Physicist Calls Climate Scientists ‘Glassy-Eyed’ Cultists

“There’s a whole area of climate so-called science that is really more like a cult,” William Happer, a physicist at Princeton University, told reporters Tuesday. He could become Trump’s next science adviser.

He added: “It’s like Hare Krishna or something like that. They’re glassy-eyed and they chant. It will potentially harm the image of all science.”

Hispanic Immigrants Plan Boycott Over Trump’s Immigration Agenda

“One day is not going to be a big deal, but once they start deporting (immigrants), it’s going to start making a difference,” Juan Rodríguez, a U.S. citizen from Colombia, explained. “Businesses will be closing. Mortgages won’t be paid. … The economy is going to start slowing down.”

As will the unemployment rate.

A spokesman for the march said that approximately 70 Latin businesses had expressed support for the event.

Yeah, that’ll sure make a difference, all right.

Irrelevant Rich People Whine About a State They Never Visit

15th February 2017

Read it.

Celebrities denounced Texas’s potential transgender bathroom bill in an open letter Tuesday.

Stars like Jimmy Kimmel, Jennifer Lawrence and Lady Gaga asked leaders in the Texas government to strike down the bill, claiming the legislation would harm transgender children, reports My Statesman.

Harm how?

“Transgender and gender-nonconforming young people are already subjected to bullying and harassment. Can you imagine the messages these bills send to children- the message of ‘that child is unwelcome. that child is dangerous?’” the letter admonished Texas leaders.

Perhaps the message is to conform. I don’t see how it will be heard above all of the encouraging messages that they get from the Crust.

Senate Bill 6 and House Bill 1362, the legislation in question, would prevent transgenders from using the bathroom according to their gender identity in public schools and government property. Schools would be allowed to provide alternate accommodations for transgenders, however.

Problem solved, then. (But, of course, that’s not the real goal — the real goal is forcing normal people to accept abnormal people as normal, and that war is far from over.)

The signers claimed the bills “criminalize” being transgender and deny transgenders their “basic human dignity.”

Don’t see any criminal penalties in there for the kids, just the DemLegHump Schools. I guess ‘basic human dignity’ somehow involves the right to be weird and to have everybody else not notice.

“It is up to you whether these bills will become law, and we are watching. It is up to us to commit to doing everything within our power to make sure all of our fans,crews,  and fellow artists feel safe and welcome, wherever we go,” the letter stated.

Aha, so it’s not about transgender kids, it’s about transgender adults. The Truth Will Out. Well, I for one don’t care whether your ‘fans, crews, and fellow artists’ feel welcome in Texas, wherever else you might want to go (and we Texans would really wish you would go there instead).

Analyze This

15th February 2017

Scott Johnson at Powerline looks at the Trump/Russian kerfuffle.

Faceless bureaucrats in the intelligence and law enforcement community seek to take down the Trump administration on some pretext relating to Russia. That is my takeaway from the New York Times story “Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russian Intelligence” by Michael Schmidt, Mark Mazzetti and Matt Apuzzo. The Times story appears to be an extension of the covert campaign waged to cashier Michael Flynn noted by Eli Lake (Bloomberg), Damon Linker (The Week) and John Podhoretz (New York Post).

The big Times story is linked by Drudge and full of incriminating innuendo. It is the innuendo that strikes me most forcibly as I read the story.

Even putting the innuendo to one side, the story’s three reporters are what literary critics call unreliable narrators. Here is their description of Trump’s sarcastic comment at the press conference late this past July in the course of the campaign (video below): “At one point last summer, Mr. Trump said at a campaign event that he hoped Russian intelligence services had stolen Hillary Clinton’s emails and would make them public.” That is a lie, not to put too fine a point on it.

The Russians Are Coming! The Russians Are Coming!

15th February 2017

If you pay any attention to the DemLegHump Media (and I can’t think of any reason why you would), you will notice a concerted attempt to tug on any loose thread in the new Trump administration in a valiant attempt to pull it apart. They’ve somehow pulled Michael Flynn loose, and so they’re going over the rest of the incoming team like a chimp in search of a flea on his brother’s butt. This has now gone to ridiculous extremes.

Example: Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russian Intelligence

An article of 30 paragraphs, carefully crafted to suggest that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian intelligence to cheat Hillary of the Presidency.

The key is paragraph three: ‘The officials interviewed in recent weeks said that, so far, they had seen no evidence of such cooperation.’

So where’s the story? The truth is that there is no story. The rest of the verbiage details the desperate attempts of Leftist bureaucrats to find something, anything, on which to hang a more serious charge. But they can’t. The dogs are running all over the landscape, and they can’t find a scent. But you’re meant to get the impression that there’s a scent there, somewhere, and it’s just a matter of time before they find it.

This isn’t news. This is the sort of thing you see in the supermarket check-out line tabloids; the fact that it’s in the New York Times proglodytes says pretty plainly that they’ve taken off the mask and are now not bothering to disguise the fact that they are just a propaganda organ for the Democrat party and the of the American left.

Hundreds of Activists Download and Archive Climate Data to Protect It from Donald Trump

15th February 2017

Read it.

Apparently Donald Trump is not only the New Hitler but the New Bogeyman as well. Perhaps he ought to change his name to The Dread Pirate Roberts.

Some 200 people willingly sequestered themselves inside on a beautiful, sunny day in order to save reams of government climate data before it could be deleted by the Trump administration.

Of course, there is no indication that ‘the Trump administration’ gives a shit about their ‘data’, most of which has been ‘massaged’ to fit their climate change models.

Activists fear the new President’s team may remove archives of valuable scientific information following his campaign declaration that “no one really knows” whether climate change is real, and his nomination for head of the Environmental Protection Agency of a man who describes himself as a “leading advocate” against the body.

In other words. they’re afraid that he will act as they would were they in his position. This tells us more about them than about Trump.

California to Consider Enacting Statewide Sanctuary

The Media Bubble

30th January 2017

Read it.

Journalists, especially on the national beat, live in an insulated world populated by other journalists and like-minded, self-described policy wonks. Even if they happen to have come from the Midwest or somewhere else people do actual work for a living, they undoubtedly spent their youth yearning to leave. Having hated where they grew up, that economic reality is easy to escape and forget in recession-proof Washington, when you type and talk for a living.

Listening is only for people who “matter,” not those who labor. Industrial areas are places they visit every four years, like the zoo. You don’t listen to the animals at the zoo. They pop in, write their stories about blue-haired old ladies and how quaint it is, then head back to the DC cocktail circuit as a hero who can regale their peers with tales of how they survived some filthy diner lacking a proper brunch menu. “You mean they didn’t have mimosas?” The horror.

Washington Post Solicits Immigration Sob Stories

30th January 2017

Read it.

In what might be described as the journalism equivalent of ambulance chasing, the Washington Post is inviting readers to tell it how their lives have been ruined by President Trump’s executive order on immigration.

I’ve been reading the Post for 55 years. I don’t recall the paper ever running individualized story after individualized story about how particular people have been affected by a government policy. Nor do I recall the Post ever soliciting such stories.

I also don’t recall the Post engaging in this sort of journalism when Donald Trump intervened to prevent companies from moving plants from the U.S. to foreign countries. The Post easily could have run multiple stories about workers whose jobs Trump saved, thereby rescuing their economic situation. The Post could have elicited information about the dire consequences particular people would have faced if the company had moved its operation abroad.

To the best of my recollection, the Post didn’t do so.

It can’t be that the Washington Post is out to get our new president, can it?

Liberal Actor Shia LaBeouf Goes on Bizarre Anti-Trump Rant

26th January 2017

Read it.

Mostly former actor and now mostly performance artist Shia LaBeouf seems to be under the illusion that if the above monotonous chant is repeated on livestream video 24/7 for the next four years, it will somehow have some sort of political impact. Well, maybe not so much political as a comedy impact as we shall see although that definitely is not LaBeouf’s intention. Entertainment provides us with a quick review of LaBeouf’s latest performance art obsession that has inadvertently turned into comic art for others.

It’s astonishing how common the belief is among those who pretend to be other people for money that they are great movers and shakers in politics, despite the fact that their influence extends only to those on the left hand of the bell curve. I rather doubt that President Trump is losing a lot of sleep over being disliked by people whose major contribution to modern American life is increasing the percentage of the population who have tattoos, piercings, and minimum-wage jobs.

White Candidate for DNC Chair Says Her Job Will Be ‘To Shut Other White People Down’

24th January 2017

Read it.

Sally Boynton Brown, a white woman running for chair of the Democratic National Committee, said Monday that if she is chosen to lead the party her job will be to “shut other white people down.”

“My job is to shut other white people down when they want to interrupt,” Brown said during a DNC candidate forum.

Brown, the executive director of the Idaho Democratic Committee, is running for the chair position against six other candidates, including three African-American candidates and one Hispanic, former Labor Secretary Tom Perez.

“My job is to shut other white people down when they want to say, ‘oh, no, I’m not prejudice; I’m a Democrat; I’m accepting,’” Brown bellowed during the forum, which was hosted by MSNBC’s Joy Reid.

Can’t say she’s wrong.

Just as Europe has its ‘anti-Fascist’ parties, the Democrats are now officially the ‘anti-white’ party.

The Science of Intellectual Tribalism

23rd January 2017

Jonah Goldberg turns over a rock.

“David Gelernter, fiercely anti-intellectual computer scientist, is being eyed for Trump’s science adviser.” — Washington Post, Jan. 18

Um. Well, huh.

For those unfamiliar with David Gelernter, he essentially created parallel computing, which sounds like witchcraft to me, but I’m told it’s a really big deal. He was also one of the first people to see the internet coming, in his 1991 book “Mirror Worlds.” Bill Joy, the co-founder of Sun Microsystems, described Gelernter as “one of the most brilliant and visionary computer scientists of our time.” Ted Kaczynski — aka “the Unabomber” — agreed, which is why he maimed Gelernter with a letter bomb in a 1993 assassination attempt.

Gelernter, who teaches computer science at Yale and has degrees in classical Hebrew, has written books and articles on history, culture, religion, artificial intelligence and philosophy. His acclaimed paintings don’t do too much for me, but that’s probably because I’m a bit of Philistine about these things.

Regardless, saying that Gelernter is “fiercely anti-intellectual” is a bit like saying Tiger Woods is fiercely anti-golf.

Accuracy has never never been a priority with the Washington Post that I can recall.

Oscar Lopez Rivera’s Legacy of Terror Mostly Whitewashed by Univision

19th January 2017

Read it.

Univision’s report on President Barack Obama’s commutation of the prison sentence of convicted terrorist Oscar Rivera López is an astounding case study in fake news. The story, which went unreported on the evening ABC, CBS and NBC newscasts and was accorded a quick blurb at Telemundo, took top billing on Tuesday’s Univision newscast.

One of the fascinating parts of this story is the anchor lead-in. Most of the time, the anchor sows bias into a straight-up report from one of their field correspondents. However, this was not the case. María Elena Salinas was factual, accurate, and neutral in her lead-in. But then Lourdes Del Río took over, and with that came the fake news portion of the report.

CNN President: Donald Trump Wants To ‘Delegitimize Journalism’

18th January 2017

Read it.

The president of CNN said Donald Trump wants to “delegitimize journalism.”

Too late for that — fake news organizations like CNN have already accomplished that mission. Trump is just pointing out that the Emperor doesn’t have any clothes.

In a recent interview with New York Magazine, Jeff Zucker defended his network’s decision to report on an unsubstantiated 35-page dossier that claimed the Russian government has comprising information about the president-elect.

And the fact that he doesn’t see the problem with that illustrates how clueless he really is.

“I actually think this was a pretty easy call in terms of its news value,” Zucker said. “The fact is, the top four intelligence chiefs of the United States decided to include in their briefing to the president and president-elect a two-page summary of allegations involving the president-elect. That is newsworthy by any definition.”

What actually happened was that they included it as an example of the sort of ‘fake news’ that Trump needed to be warned about in his daily news briefings, not because it was a Real Story. This was just an attempt to smear Trump, and it blew up in their faces. ‘Mommeee! Johnny hit me BACK!’

Intersectional Feminist Catfights Turn Me On

16th January 2017

Jim Goad clues us in.

“Intersectionality,” which I’ve previously referred to as “Cannibalism Among The Oppressed,” refers to the highly amusing tendency of leftist identity politics to devolve into petty pissing matches about whose group has had a shittier, more miserable history. In case you didn’t realize, the more of a historical loser you are, the more advanced and noble you are as a human being. When it comes to shuffling the Progressive Stack, straight white Christian males go to the bottom of the deck by default. But if you just happen to be a one-armed HIV+ obese transgender black lesbian with multiple personality disorder, you might as well be the second coming of Gandhi.

To their befuddlement, white feminists are waking up to the fact that they are being herded to the back of the progressive bus due to their shamefully inescapable whiteness.

There is probably not one issue that Bill Kristol and John Lewis agree on. Lewis is a partisan lefty who may be more of a dedicated Communist than Vladimir Putin.

Several years ago Lewis accused Tea Party protesters of spitting on him and calling him the “N-word” during a political stunt – the walk to the Capitol to vote for ObamaCare. There were cameras everywhere. The late Andrew Breitbart initially offered $10,000 to anyone who could prove it happened. There were no takers even when Breitbart upped the reward to $100,000. The reason Breitbart never payed out a dime is that John Lewis is a liar who’s reputation was built (and peaked) during the Civil Rights marches of the 1960’s.

And then there’s this reality, that while John Lewis may be a Civil Rights Icon™, Vladimir Putin is the head of a nation of 143 million with an estimated 7,000 nuclear weapons. And if Bill Kristol doesn’t respect that then who really has the problem?
