A few weeks ago one of those peace loving, tolerant liberals rode her bike past President Trump’s motorcade. What does such a compassionate, earth loving progressive do? She gave the president the finger.
The photo got plastered all over the left loving internet including facebook and twitter. Suddenly she was a hero to be applauded. That was in their eyes. The woman’s boss fired her for violating the company’s social media policy.
Enter the ever attention getting Megyn Kelly. What a perfect person to put on her floundering show! She could get publicity and earn some love from the Left by showcasing someone who dissed the president. This despite telling her audience on the show’s September premier that she was “done with politics.”
Kelly introduced Julie Briskman, saying, “Her picture splashed across Twitter, Facebook, national and international newspapers and websites. Why? Because Julie Briskman decided, on a whim, to give the bird to President Trump’s passing motorcade.”
Here’s the clip:
Kelly’s comments are inane. I thought she was all about cordiality and getting along. Evidently only about getting along with NBC and getting some ratings. Shame on her. Can you imagine the outcry had a conservative done it to Obama?
This morning, paging through the CA, I again didn’t see any stories about President Trump in Vietnam or elsewhere.
Not surprising – again.
I did see a page and once I started reading it, it suddenly seemed very familiar. It was Page 5 with the USA Today header. There was a large picture of Alabama Judge Roy Moore plus a smaller picture of Senator Mitch McConnell. Reminded me of Friday’s edition.
Digging yesterday’s newspaper out of the recycle bin, I found Page 6 was the exact page run today. The newspaper editors are so sloppy and careless they ran the same exact page. How did no one notice this?
The answer is no one there or in Nashville cares. It’s just a product to be cranked out without any measure of quality. It shows how unreliable Gannett is. All they care about is pushing their propaganda. I’m not sure they even care about making money. All the news that’s fit to print – twice.
The sooner they’re out of business the better.
According to Page Six of the New York Post, Harold Ford Jr. attended an engagement party for MSNBC’s lovey dovey couple Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.
Former Obama “car czar” and “Morning Joe” contributor Steve Rattner threw the party for them.
The MSNBC co-anchors were engaged in late April during a romantic trip to the French Riviera to celebrate Mika’s 50th birthday and plan to marry next year, we’re told.
The “First Couple of Cable News” was surprised, at the party held at Rattner’s Fifth Avenue apartment, by an impersonator of their nemesis, President Donald Trump.
The fake Trump interrupted Rattner’s toast by hollering, “I need to correct you. The fake news is at it again. They love to lie. The show is awful and unwatchable. People are saying it was canceled weeks ago.”
The impersonator also joked, “I never colluded with Russia, and I never gave intelligence to Russians because I never had intelligence and I never will.”
Guests toasting the happy couple on Thursday night included John Kerry, Ari Emanuel, Harold Ford Jr., Chuck Schumer, Nicolle Wallace, Al Sharpton and Peggy Noonan, as well as Mayor Bill de Blasio.
Ari Emanuel is, of course, Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel’s brother. Nicolle Wallace and Peggy Noonan were once Repubicans; Wallace worked for GWB and Noonan for Reagan. How far they have fallen to hobnob with Schumer and de Blasio!
How did Ford rate an invite? Is ha planning a run?
The Anthem Veterans Memorial in Anthem, Arizona has been designed to honor our servicemen and their families.
They were designed by Renee Palmer-Jones of Anthem. Twistedsifter.com reports “The five marble pillars represent the five branches of the United States military. They are staggered in size (from 17 ft to 6 ft) and ordered in accordance with the Department of Defense prescribed precedence, ranging from the United States Army, the United States Marine Corps, the United States Navy, the United States Air Force and the United States Coast Guard.”
At precisely 11:11 a.m. each Veterans Day (Nov. 11), the sun’s rays pass through the ellipses of the five Armed Services pillars to form a perfect solar spotlight over a mosaic of The Great Seal of the United States.
A nice and well thought out honor for our veterans.
Another day, another excluding of Trump’s Asian trip in the CA.
You can’t blame the time difference on this either. A lot has happened regarding trade and North Korea when Trump went to China. It deserves coverage no matter what your political bent because it will effect us all.
That isn’t what Gannett considers journalism, however. Reporting news in an objective way? Not their style. It might make President Trump look good.
Instead, we get a little story in the news roundup that the “Trump administration unleashes more sanctions on Venezuela.” Interesting word choice in “unleashes.” Sounds harsh and mean, doesn’t it?
Then the usual editorial page hit job with a Corker plug: “Corker, Trump: when lies push truth out the door.” Corker, of course, is the good guy while Trump is a “petulant, name calling reality TV celebrity, who, through a colossal accident of history became our president.” There’s more, but you get the gist.
Far be it for the CA to report anything. Can you imagine the pages devoted to Obama, had he made the trip?
Since President Trump left on his Asia trip, Republican congressmen and senators have acted like children.
Before he left, it appeared we were on the cusp of getting real tax reform passed. A bill passed in the House and another in the Senate. There was talk of getting it put together by Thanksgiving.
Since Trump left, the tax reform plan has splintered. Now we have different people coming up with new plans. The House committee spent three days wrestling with it and last night Chairman Kevin Brady basically took his work home for an all nighter. They got it out of committee this afternoon, but then there’s …
The Senate. There the swamp critters want to come up with their own plan. People like McCain and Corker, who only see their own interests instead of the country’s, plan to sabotage everything. They’re not up for election, so why not? McCain might be called home by the lord (or someone). Nothing to lose for them.
Some Republicans may have been spooked by Tuesday’s wins by the Democrats. The media has hyped what was really not a surprising outcome.
Some may have let the door open to the lobbyists again, who come in and plot and plan for their own clients/interests.
Some are too obtuse to know what’s going on. This afternoon another wrinkle was thrown in the mix. Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore has been accused of sexual harassment back in 1979. If the Democrat wins, that could imperil anything passing at all.
When President Trump returns, I hope he shows these knuckleheads that Daddy’s back and he doesn’t like what the kids have done while he was gone. He’s the one who can do it. Tough love applies now. Rough ’em up (figuratively of course) until they know who’s boss. Sadly these “kids” are too messed up to know what to do.
But that’s why we hired Trump, isn’t it?
I used to think that after he left the presidency, Barack Obama would hole up in his DC home and start plotting and planning on how to destroy Trump and the Republicans. After all, transforming the country into his own socialist vision was what he worked on for eight years on 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
A recent interview by author Ed Klein suggests he’s not all that engaged. Gateway Pundit reports:
Ms. Mefferd, a longtime former religion writer for the Dallas Morning News is now a Christian Talk Show host. On Tuesday she interviewed Ed Klein on his latest book “All out war: the plot to destroy Donald Trump”.
The conversation turned to former President Barack Obama, and how he’s not quite being the warrior that many expected him to be (and I must confess that knowing 1. Obama doesn’t like people (according to a former staffer), 2. that he’s far from the most disciplined of men, and 3. that he may still have some bad habits from his younger days I somewhat expected this).
Mr. Klein dropped this baby H-bomb on the show. “According to my sources, despite all the efforts on the part of the Democratic party to get the former president engaged he’s totally disengaged,
“He’s popping gummy bears infused with cannabis… all this comes from a source of mine who actually has smoked marijuana with him since he left the White House.” He’s, as you just said, playing video games like a teenager, going back to his “Choom gang” days in Hawaii when he smoked pot.”
That wouldn’t surprise me. Obama’s day in the White House usually began at 10 a.m. Remember, too, that he didn’t want to read the presidential daily briefings? He concentrated on basketball Final Four picks and loved to watch games in another office in the afternoons.
Obama always seemed programmed to me. Many believe, and I do, too, that he was selected early in his life to be groomed for the job. Thus he has other people who instruct him what to do.
Mrs. O may not be so lazy. Rush Limbaugh believes she is eyeing the Oval office herself. She’d love to do what Hillary couldn’t do and she’d love the power.
The Democrats have so few top tier people to choose from, Michelle might very well be viable.
And that would be a very bad thing for the country.
You have to hand it to the media. When they want to black out a story, they do it down to the smallest media outlet.
Gannett, a big print purveyor of swamp crud, sees to it that their reach travels down even to insignificant outlets like the CA. Memphians who read the rag never encountered any stories about the tax reform plans passed in the House or Senate or about any of Hillary’s connections to the Golden Showers dossier or her selling (and profiting from) the sale of 20% of U.S. uranium. You got crickets.
Whenever Corker emerges from swamp ooze to croak something negative about President Trump, the CA devotes a lot of ink to it – usually several stories – in their already handkerchief size news pages.
Today is no different.
Yesterday and today Trump made a historic visit to China. China is undoubtedly the most important relationship with another country we have. The Chinese welcomed Trump effusively with all pomp and ceremony. For the first time, the Chinese played our national anthem for the president and first lady. They toured the Forbidden City (a first for a U.S. president, too) before dining there. It’s considered a huge honor.
Don’t look for any info on that or on any talks about North Korea in the CA. No front page picture. No headlines. We are informed that Obama showed up at the court house in Chicago for jury duty, but wasn’t chosen. That Trump restricts business and travel to Cuba and that our ancestors were rats, according to a British article.
On network and cable TV last night you didn’t see any coverage of the Chinese welcome to Trump either. A little bit of a performance by children for Melania was shown during Sean Hannity’s show, but there was no sound from it. Instead, Lanny Davis was on with others to discuss Democrat wins and the Brazile books.
I guess it’s a matter of priorities.
These people are manipulative and sly. Today’s informed American can just about write off any newspaper, skip national news and instead look at a variety of websites. They don’t care about the truth and they don’t have Americans’ interests in mind.
This is the best analysis of Tuesday’s loss of the gubernatorial seat in Virginia. It’s from White House Dossier’s Keith Koffler and is entitled, “No, the Lesson of Virginia is Not that the GOP Needs to Moderate Itself”:
It’s like something out of the Marx Brothers. Every time the GOP runs an establishment candidate and loses, the solution offered by the Republican establishment and analysts in the press is for the Republicans to run more establishment candidates.
John McCain loses? Well, here’s the solution – Mitt Romney! Mitt Romney loses? Well, here’s the solution – Jeb Bush! Turns out what the Republicans needed to win was a conservative, nationalist inconoclast, Donald Trump.
Ed Gillespie is a good guy and would have made a good governor. But he is as establishment a Republican as you can be. Former RNC chair, lobbyist, etc., etc. The Republican base was not going to turn out for him, and it didn’t. That’s why he lost.
Gillespie broadcast the “Trump” message, but people knew he was faking it. Start with his failure to bring Trump into Virginia. How can you convince people you are supportive of someone’s ideas if you are afraid to be seen with the someone?
People in Washington look at politics from a static perspective. Some are saying Virginia is a now a blue state. Democrat wins, take a snapshot – looks tinted blue. But what about democracy? What about the power to convince? What about running a passionate conservative who might change people’s minds and make Virginia vote red?
That’s what was missing. Gillespie was not a legitimate bearer of the populist message. Voters will respond to a good argument, and conservatism is a good argument when properly made. And yes, that includes Hispanics and blacks, despite the media’s efforts to pigeonhole them as fated to unthinkingly vote as a bloc against the people the media cast as racists.
