A Fishy POW/MIA Story

It covers the land like kudzu
Newsweak (yes, that Newsweek) has reprinted an article originally published in The Washington Spectator entitled "The Story Behind the POW/MIA Flag" (original title with included the word "racist" has been modified) intended to frame the well known black flag as a symbol of "invisible racism", Nixonian thought control and jingoistic justification for imperialistic murder. Why Newsweak would pick up and run this excrement evacuated during Hamilton Fish the Fifth's monthly constitutional is hard to fathom - they must have known that political rivals would pounce, but how they could overlook the honest and heartfelt anguish normal humans might feel about POW/MIA's and their plight shows just how soulless and disconnected these Manhattan/DC clowns really are. As you'd expect, Newsweek and TWS were crushed with valid and furious complaints from the American people for publishing Rick Perlstein's drivel and defaming a movement to remember the missing and do all that is possible to bring soldiers home from foreign hostilities.

I'm not even going to touch on the content of the story - It's the usual crap that I grew up with about Viet Nam, Nixon, dark forces, hoodwinked citizens, cultural racism - which calls the POW/MIA flag a "shroud" that's "as common as kudzu" (nice image Rick). But I do want to comment on the "apology" that was forced out of HFV's minion, Lou Dubose, who "edits" TWS and, I guess, has responsibility for what's printed in it (Newsweak has no excuse). Dubose says in part:
"We published Rick Perlstein’s article on the POW/MIA flag, because it insightfully examines the cynical manipulation of public opinion at the expense of the downed pilots and foot soldiers the creators of the MIA movement claimed to represent."
Ah, yes. "The cynical manipulation of public opinion" - we can't have that now can we Mr. Washington Spectator - that's just horrible. Who would stoop to such a thing? How could they? I'm being sarcastic, of course, but I don't want it to be thought that Dubose and Perlstein are just oblivious college kids who are too inexperienced or stupid to know what they are doing and saying with their "apology" which is obviously false. They're liars with nefarious and premeditated evil intent - they know exactly what they're doing and they throw out this "cynical manipulation of public opinion" straw man as cover or deflection because that is EXACTLY what they do - it's why they wake up in the morning and why they can't go to sleep at night. Sleep un-well you grubby scum - your day of reckoning will come.

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

@POTUS hasn’t Tweeted

What happened to the 11,000 tweets? Twitter has conducted a "purge" of "conservative" voices from its "platform" and that includes the account of one Donald J Trump who happens to be the President of the United States of America. To which I say GOOD! Let's take it from the top. A purge (the bad kind) does not include getting kicked off a social network. If that's such a bad thing then the problem is with the society and not the network. Purges are when police officers bust down your door at 3AM, grab you and drive out to some empty field where they shoot you in the head and then tossed your limp body in a mass grave. A conservative is someone like Mitt Romney or these tools at the Lincoln Project who are free to post whatever lies or inflammatory rhetoric they want on Twitter. Twitter has no hatred for “conservatives” or Republicans as far as that goes and I don't think a single member of Congress or the political establishment has been "p
