A reader strolling down the street in Chicago spotted a recruiting poster for “Activist Jobs,” a bit of an oxymoron. “Activism” by implication is volunteer work undertaken because the goal sought by the acts in question is so important to the “activist.” Goal-oriented acts that are compensated are called “work,” not “activism.” But in the photograph below, the two different categories of endeavor are conflated: (Photo) The confusion is deliberate and speaks to a larger strategy of the Left, also based on deception. The American Left has relied on its mastery of the media – enthusiastically aided and abetted by
FTA "Ever since the 1950s, the left has been deliberately creating events in order to attract media attention that pushes a narrative confirming the justice of their demands. It learned that the new medium of television was perfect for creating artificial dramas that would sway support its way."
One current example FTA "The media-political deepthinkers decided that Trump’s crowd should be portrayed as dangerous, violent thugs reminiscent of Hitler’s rise to power. So Robert Creamer, husband of Rep. Jan Schakowski (D-IL) and a longtime shadowy Democrat operative, deployed “troublemakers” to stir up a hoped-for violent response, which could then be televised in an appropriately edited form. The resulting drama was eagerly lapped up by the media lapdogs, and is still believed to be an accurate vision of Trump’s supporters by many people whose media diet follows the priorities of the editors of New York Times."
Excellent article! The msm is working today on new Fake News for tomorrow. They the msm must be defeated, for they are nothing but liars and propagandists for Democrats.
Its all a narrative created by the left. They know what they are going to say in advance, and when they are going to say it. All according to plan. Its not really news, but it is propaganda to influence the American voter and influence politics. The people pushing this garbage do not represent us. They only represent themselves and special interests. Its a tyranny. We hear it every time the news comes on. Fake News. It won´t stop. The only hope is more and more people wise up, and kick the left out of power, and turn off the lefty media.
This morning on Morning idiot and the Putz, Joe Scarborough claims he got an important phone call over the weekend from a very prominent doctor telling him that the Republican Health-care Bill is bad. Every Monday Joe talks about who called him over the weekend at one time it was someone from the CIA, another time someone in the FBI and also others in intelligence. Joe is a LIAR you can tell by just looking at him when he is spewing all this garbage. Furthermore who the HELL would call him??????
And when the Fake News is reported, Bob Mueller will bring Eric Holder on board to investigate it, and arrange for Lucy Ramirez to provide all the documents they need to prove the case to a Washington DC jury.
Let´s see, Donny JR is offered dirt on Hillary and he shows up to get it and it turns out to be bait and switch. The definition of treason to the demonrats The Dems spy on Trump using the intelligence assets paid for by US taxpayers find nothing then manufacture dirt to sooth their disappointed little hearts and that´s what, just politics?
JR shows up for information but none was forthcoming:
The Clintons broker a deal giving the Russians Nuclear weapons fuel in return for boatloads of cash:
Khrushchev knew American couldn´t be undo by the Russians, he knew it had to be done in America. The democrat/progressives are today is what he was talking about. He was a visionary. The spineless republicans are assisting. In another decade the America of the past that I gre up in will no longer exist. At age 73 I hope I´m not around to see the end of America as I knew it.
To me this is Biblical. Our enemies are falling into the traps they themselves have laid. It´s just how life works as designed by the Creator. Those that reject God and His Plan may enjoy worldly success for a certain time but it always ends in destruction. Those that recognize God and His Authority will often struggle mightily against evil forces but God´s people and Goodness always triumph.
I firmly believe that Donald Trump won the presidency because God chose him as His champion in response to a faithful people´s prayers. President Trump is uniquely qualified by his education, experience, and temperament to thrive in the Communist’s milieu of division and chaos. The Uniparty apparatchiks and their enemedia lackeys have been crafting narratives in opposition of reality for so long they can no longer recognize reality. Trump is a reality based individual and therefore rejects out-of-hand obvious fantasy. His tool of choice is utilizing the humble Tweet to neutralize the millions of words spewed in print and broadcast media. The current enemedia China Syndrome level meltdown is proof of his mastery of messaging.
If the Uniparty really want to discuss treason, national security in a volatile world, and collusion with foreign governments then President Trump will happily lead that discussion. The momentum has shifted and the power of the media to cover for the Uniparty is rapidly diminishing. Next summer is going to be a whole lot of fun.
This article brings out just how that internet has changed the world. It has created places where people can go to and learn what the truth really is. People don´t have to rely on was is said on TV or printed in newspapers and news magazines. And it is the reason the dims are doing all they can to get control of the internet and allow only what that they want on the internet.
Yeah TQ, this does indeed look like a Haman moment for the Marxists. Sadly, this modern day Haman doesn´t have to be nearly as smart (although just as evil) as the Esther Haman since the modern day Xerxes (Ahasuerus) is a fidiot.
Reminds me of all the muslims who are fearful of the backlash from tomorrow´s act of terrorism. Now we just have to make the left fearful enough that they will stop lying and manufacturing tomorrow´s narratives. There should be consequences for the MSM purposely hiding the truth from us, and lying about events. The media exists only to report the events of the day, not interpret them for us and make up narratives.

Thomas Lifson, Rush Limbaugh, Andrew Breitbart and Sundance have been the tip of the spear and now our amazing President Donaldus Magnus is our General Patton mechanized infantry. If we defeat the one world conspiracy media possession we will win for decades to come.
Yes Timber Queen, President Trump won by the grace of God. Even I prayed for US to be rescued from our plight, and I had never prayed for anything political before.
The media may lose this one because pretty much everyone now knows that the Stock Market went up 17% since the election, adding 4 Trillion in value, some of which I am merrily blowing off this summer. I sometimes wonder whether the incorrigible National Review #Nevertumpers have 401ks. Maybe the New World Order narrative is like the song of the Sirens to them as they crash into the shoals of Marxist narratives. This goes To you too, Dr. Krauthammer.
Madam Postawy can do even better than LIfson! I can accurately predict who the major media will endorse for the presidency in 2020, 2024, 2028, and every four years after that. Watch as I caress and look into my crystal ball....it is hazy but getting clearer...it will be candidates who have something to do with the letter "D" somewhere after their names
Not long ago, on a summer afternoon, I found myself in Las Vegas with nothing much to do. My flight back home wasn´t until the next day. The $20 I was willing to throw away on gambling didn´t last as long, so I needed something to do. Luckily, over the last decade or so, Las Vegas has become the machine gun capital of the world. A Mecca of hot lead unloaded at a blistering pace. There´s at least half a dozen places where you can rent some full-auto fun. There´s no other town I´m aware of that has more than
Yesterday, I saw Senator Coons, Democrat from Delaware say he couldn’t vote for the Graham Cassidy healthcare replacement bill because it didn’t have a clear definition of adequate and affordable for those with preexisting conditions. What a joke! The Affordable Care act (ACA) was an over 2,000 page bill (that most hadn’t read when they voted on it) with massive numbers of mandates and twenty new taxes and I don’t recall Democrats asking for definitions let alone on subjective terms like adequate and affordable. President Obama went around repeating that everyone would be able to keep their plan and doctor
Many members of the national media hate President Trump so much that they´ll even defend North Korea if it keeps them consistent in their opposition to everything he does. After Trump said at the United Nations General Assembly this week that the U.S. would crush the little Asian country should Kim Jong Un attack the U.S. or our allies, reporters and commentators reacted as if he had just threatened Switzerland on a whimsy. Trump had simply said that the U.S. "has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no
North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is growing in popularity on America’s political left-wing as the despot engages in a war of words with President Trump. Progressives have shown an increasing willingness to embrace the brutal dictator as a means of attacking Trump, and some in the media have given the brutal dictator friendly, celebrity-like coverage. Left-wing activists, meanwhile, are eagerly spreading pro-North Korea propaganda and making excuses for the dictator’s murderous activities. Un’s public attacks on Trump on Tuesday prompted praise for the dictator by some in the media. Washington Post columnist Petula Dvorak fawned over Un in a column
Megyn Kelly has spent the past four months popping by the set ´Today´ as she worked on turning herself from a steely cable news host into a warm and relatatble morning show presence ahead of the premiere of her new NBC show. And after all that hard work, Megyn got one final chance on Friday to prove to viewers just how similar she is to the rest of America, and she did not waste a moment. In the span of just two minutes, Megyn kicked things of by managing to command the final moments of the Today´s Take finale where
The Obama Presidential Center planned for Jackson Park could be a shot in the arm for the South Side, bringing jobs, economic development and other benefits. But a coalition of activists and residents want those promises put in writing — something the former president himself refused to do just this week. Still, those groups are pressing on, saying they plan to go to the city to get the legal enforcement a written document would provide. The Kenwood-Oakland Community Organization has started the process of getting a community benefits agreement drafted as a city ordinance. Jawanza Malone, executive director of the
What do a retweet of a billion-dollar presidential golf swing hitting a hole-in-one into the back of a former presidential Democrat candidate, the new name poetically given to a crazed lunatic who has a fetish for shooting off misguided rockets, and a March 4th claim of “wiretapping” in Trump Tower that took seven months to be proven true, all have in common? President Donald J. Trump‘s magnificent way of communicating to the American people and the world instantaneously -- tweeting. What Twitter is for President Trump in 2017, Facebook was for former President Obama in 2008. There has been much
Sen. John McCain almost certainly just killed TrumpCare — and gave a boost to managed-care stocks such as UnitedHealth (UNH) and Centene (CNC). The Arizona Republican declared that he couldn´t "in good conscience" vote for the Graham-Cassidy plan to repeal ObamaCare and replace it with block grants to states. John McCain?Verified account @SenJohnMcCain I cannot in good conscience vote for Graham-Cassidy. A bill impacting so many lives deserves a bipartisan approach. The news brought a sudden turnaround in managed-care stocks, though much of that was short-lived. Shares of Centene, whose fortunes are more tied to the ObamaCare exchanges and Medicaid
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) announced on Friday that he will vote against the latest GOP effort to repeal ObamaCare, potentially dooming the legislation. “I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal. I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried," he said in a statement, referring to the legislation spearheaded by GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham (S.C) and Bill Cassidy (La.). McCain´s announcement leaves GOP leadership with no room for error.
Former First Lady Michelle Obama has spoken about what life was like for her and her family during her eight years in The White House. Her candid comments came during a moderated discussion at a tech conference in Salt Lake City, Utah on Thursday evening. ´It´s like being shot out of a cannon while drinking from a fire hydrant blind,´ she explained as she told of how she got used to her new way of living. ´You have to tell The White House what kind of toilet paper you like. You don´t know where your forks are.´ (Photos) Mrs Obama
The Senate’s top Democrat offered praise for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) after he said he would oppose the latest ObamaCare repeal bill, which narrows the chance that Republicans can get the legislation to President Trump’s desk. “John McCain shows the same courage in Congress that he showed when he was a naval aviator,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said an hour after McCain’s statement. “I have assured Senator McCain that as soon as repeal is off the table, we Democrats are intent on resuming the bipartisan process.” McCain is the second Republican, after Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), to announce
Former Democratic Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) tweeted that she hopes all NFL players kneel during the national anthem on Sunday in response to President Trump´s remarks attacking Colin Kaepernick. Edwards, who left Congress earlier this year, called Trump a "white supremacist who squats in our White House" in her tweet.
If NFL fans continue to turn away from football, the TV networks could lose as much as $200 million in earnings, according to a new report. After ratings for Week Two crashed, adding to the angst already felt by a poor showing in Week 1, industry insiders and analysts are sounding the alarm. A new report claims that CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC could take a $200 million hit to their estimated $2.5 billion in NFL advertising earnings if fans continue to turn off the TV, the The Hollywood Reporter noted recently. The worries over earnings are not allayed by
His pre-dawn raid was meant to intimidate Manafort, not just to collect evidence. Robert Mueller’s sprawling special-counsel investigation is playing hardball. It was not enough to get a search warrant to ransack the Virginia home of Paul Manafort, even as the former Trump campaign chairman was cooperating with congressional investigators. Mueller’s bad-asses persuaded a judge to give them permission to pick the door lock. That way, they could break into the premises in the wee hours, while Manafort and his wife were in bed sleeping. They proceeded to secure the premises — of a man they are reportedly investigating for tax and financial crimes, not gang murders and Mafia hits — by drawing their guns on the stunned couple, apparently to check their pajamas for weapons. Mueller’s probe more resembles an empire, with 17 prosecutors retained on the public dime. So . . .
