“What country are we living in?”

Leave it to the New York Times to miss the point that Steve Bannon was trying to get through their thick skulls and everyone in the media-industrial complex follows the lead of the NYTimes so they will miss it too (for now). Here's the headline from 42nd Street and their phone call with Darth Vader:



What Bannon actually said was, “The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for a while.” So a more accurate headline would read:

Trump Strategist Stephen Bannon Says Humiliated Media Should ‘Just Listen For A While’

Listening is not something the MSM does very well and even when they do listen what goes in the ears gets horribly distorted by the feedback loops, ear wax  and dead air blocking their inner ear.



That's too bad, but that's the way it is and that's the way it will remain. That's because the Big Foot Media - NYTimesWaPoLATimesBroadcast/CableNews - don't understand the country they are living in and ostensibly reporting on.
“I want you to quote this,” Mr. Bannon added. “The media here is the opposition party. They don’t understand this country. They still do not understand why Donald Trump is the president of the United States.”
Example: Christiane Amanpour who was born in the UK to an Iranian father and English mother and was raised in Iran as a child and the UK as a teenager. She showed up in America for college and has lived her internationally focused life from inside the northeast media bubble. She now makes London her home so she doesn't even live in America. "Amanpour played herself in newscasts in the films Iron Man 2 and Pink Panther 2." So I'm not even sure she "lives" on this planet, but she sure as hell doesn't live in this country and "We're Not Going To Shut Up" because...
"And I mean -- if I was going to be funny, I'd say that he's angling for an order of merit from president Sisi, Putin, Erdogan and all the others. That is how they treat their press. That is what they believe the press should be, a compliant state propaganda unit in the service of the president.
It is not the tradition of the American press. So of course we're not going to shut up, and why should we? And what have we done wrong? And why should we be humiliated About what? The story was right, we reported the story, whatever it is, we got it right."
Umm, I'm sorry, but what is this fine woman talking about? She's very intelligent and a curious reporter with broad international scope and, it must be said, a big compassionate heart but this is delusion on an epic scale.

  • "Not in the tradition of the American press to be a compliant state propaganda unit." - Really? Are you really capable of saying that with a straight face? What the hell was I living through for the last 8 years? What did I just witness during the presidential campaign? 
  • "Not going to shut up, and why should we?" - So you can listen dumbass and maybe learn something.
  • "What have we done wrong?" - You've consistently mislead the consumers of your news product and in the case of the most recent election you got it completely, 100% wrong.
  • "Why should we be humiliated?" - Well, as news reporters your job is to accurately report the facts on the ground and not be advocates for one side or the other. The fact that you reported biased, inaccurate news and then lost is humiliating.
  • "About what?" - About everything Christiane, about everything - the false polling, the constant trolling, the ticker rolling and the bell tolling. You went all in for Hitlery and you blew it, you lied for her and you still can't accept your defeat.

It's time to shut up and listen CA - It could make you an even better reporter and that would be good for everybody. Also, you might finally learn what country you're living in.

Blue Devils and Yellow Cowards

A few weeks ago Duke lost Coach K’s last game at Camron Indoor Stadium to the schools hated rival, North Carolina University, in an epic grudge match. It was an “ unacceptable ” finale for the maniacal ferret-faced competitor who created the 40 year dynastic Duke hoops program with 1,000+ wins and fists full of ACC and NCAA championships but for Tar Heels everywhere it was a day of retribution. Michael  William Krzyzewski, is a red-blooded All-American college basketball coach of Polish and Ukrainian descent who grew up in Chicago’s famous Ukrainian Village which is (or at least was) culturally very reminiscent of the Rus borderlands. That is to say that young S h-shef-ski   grew up as  far away (psychology) from Dixie as is possible while still living within the borders of the USA. That makes him the perfect choice to represent Duke University and the Yankee overachievers who emigrate to Durham for 4 years of education and networking before moving back to non-Southern civilization.

Who voted for this guy?

Who voted for this guy? It's been ten days since the results of the Maricopa County, Arizona ballot audit were released to the public and presented at a hearing held by the state senate. This exercise in democratic accountability had been going on for months and, if reports are to be believed, was completed well over a  month before the September 24th hearing where   overwhelming proof of an illegitimate election was presented to lawmakers . The audit showed multiple irregularities, fake ballots, duplicate counts, errors, omissions and egregious acts of sabotage and obstinance by the Maricopa County board of supervisors who did everything they could to withhold and destroy evidence of wrongdoing from the citizen sleuths. The misfeasance of Arizona's political leaders was clearly defined, shocking and (for some) beyond belief but somehow these facts were discovered, organized, packaged and suppressed for MONTHS by the Cyber Ninjas who were attempting to "get to the bottom&q

Mask Off

U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle finally did it - after 14 months of mandatory masking by order of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this capricious and ineffectual edict has been ruled unconstitutional and, it follows, illegal.  Since January 29, 2021 the CDC has prohibited citizens to travel without wearing a mask but the insanity actually started as far back as July 14, 2020 when " CDC calls on Americans to wear masks to prevent COVID-19 spread ." That's 643 days of stupidity folks - it covers the Kenosha Riots, the attempted kidnapping of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, the Fake 2020 Election, the 1/6 Save America March and Insurrection, Jo(((K)))e Brandon's phony Inauguration, Trump's 2nd Impeachment, a horrible year of pathetic "leadership" from every single elected official in Washington DC, a war in Eastern Europe - and NOW, at long last, a federal judge in Florida ends the mask tyranny with one simple ruling from her bench.
