Dear lying media…

leave a comment »

…if you’re the least bit curious about why most Americans find you a corrupt,  slimy lot undeserving of the protections which our Constitution affords you,  you might try telling  the truth  about the recent shooting in Fresno.   You  substituted “God is great!” for the shooter’s shouted words of  “Allahu Akbar!”,  knowing full well that your deliberate omission of the Arabic words was misleading at best.   Of course,  CNN  simply ignored the inconvenient story altogether,  lest it interfere with its narrative of mistreated and misunderstood peaceful Muslims.

Or you could have National Public Radio  stop peddling  the endlessly repeated lie that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms.   It does not,  but it does provide referrals for that and most of the other procedures it claims to offer.   The fact that Barack Obama helped spread the falsehoods during his presidency does not serve to make them true.

Of course,  the Fresno police haven’t  much clarified  the matter by declaring this a hate crime based on race because the killer of four was black and all the victims were white.  Can we say  “terrorism”  boys and girls?

Public thinks media want Clinton win…

leave a comment »

The American people proved their naivete by electing His Oneness twice,   but two national polls show we have smartened up enough to realize the media is almost entirely pro-Clinton.   A majority of Clinton supporters see  it as well.

The one benefit I see coming from this wretched political season is that very few in the media will any longer be charged with committing journalism.

Disputing media polling…

leave a comment »

If you believe the media polling,   Queen Hillary is so far ahead that she’ll win in a landslide.    Or at least she’s so comfortably ahead that she’d now devoting her efforts to helping down-ballot Democrats.   Or that some other mysterious force is at work to ensure that the next president will be a fat old woman in poor health and would be the most corrupt person ever to occupy that space.

No matter what you believe,  the truth is that no one really knows.   This is not a normal election.   We the People are angry,  as we should be after nearly eight years of His Oneness,  not to mention the prospect of Queen Hillary finishing off what is left of our nation.

Seth Keshel does an admirable job of  laying it  all out for you.   Please read it,  then pass it along.   Our future depends on it.

Media polling BS…

leave a comment »

Sundance of the Conservative Tree house has  deconstructed the  latest poll showing Queen Hillary 11 points ahead.   Please read with with attention,  as it shows the level of deceit MSM employs to promote Hillary.   Thomas Lifson  agrees with  Sundance.

Add to that the new meme of CBS and NBC touting the GOP civil war and predicting that  the GOP will lose both houses of Congress,  and it should remind you of MSM’s all-out war on Mitt Romney, even more egregious because he is a thoroughly decent man without the slightest hint of impropriety or scandal in his life.

Big media routinely fails to report the size of Trump’s crowds,  and customarily  pads the numbers  at Hillary’s,  along with carefully staging photos so you don’t see all the empty seats at her smaller venues.   The bottom line is that if you support a candidate who lies whenever she opens her mouth,  it should be no surprise that you are willing to lie for her,  even if your job,  protected by the Constitution,  is to deliver actual news to the American people.

Hillary and Trump 1st debate…

leave a comment »

I confess I did not watch the debate.   Yesterday was a long,  tiring and rather unpleasant day,  and I was in no mood for politics,  especially since I have no candidate to vote for,  only ones to vote against.  I did see some footage with no sound while I waited for the local late news,  and my observation was that Trump looked dour and dull,  and Hillary looked like a wide-eyed robot.

Roger Simon may  have it  right,  and We the People may  have gotten  the debate we deserved.   Maybe we should call it the who’s  less crazy  debate?   Trump was  taking on  an entire system,  not just Hillary,  and as I expected,  moderator Lester Holt couldn’t quite keep his little fingers  off the  scales.   I find it amusing that he is apparently a  registered Republican,  but does anyone believe he has ever in his entire life voted for a Republican?

I was interested in John  Hinderaker’s comments,  and  those of  Matthew Walther,  though I suppose that Thomas Lifson’s  point that  who you are determines your opinion is correct.   Jonah Goldberg is also right that how you score  the debate determines who won.   With those caveats, pundits and viewers had their own opinions,  with the  majority of  snap  polls favoring Trump.   Perhaps the most reliable gauge is the effect the debate had on a  bar full  of undecideds and Democrats,  who  preferred Trump the gentleman to Hillary the slugger.

No one can dispute that Hillary has  great command  of the facts,  which she emits with well-rehearsed efficiency,  and while she may have made more points,  Trump may  have scored  more.   My questions is:  if Hillary was truly thinking she was hitting a home run,  why was she demanding during the debate that her media pals go after Trump?
