Are Journalists Overreacting to Donald Trump?
Vanity Fair*, by James Warren

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/6/2017 11:33:10 AM

As with Lady Gaga Sunday night, Kellyanne Conway gives us a million reasons. Conway, a senior advisor to President Trump, was on Fox News with Howard Kurtz earlier in the day, proceeding apace with delegitimizing the press. She spoke of "selective coverage" and "information underload," meaning the press was nefariously keeping the good stuff about the Trump White House from the American public. A million reasons why the press is unfair to her boss. So, what do experienced hands from conservative and libertarian newsrooms think about the coverage so far? "I think the media are in grave danger here of

Their marching orders are to find any and all reasons to make Trump look bad. That´s their brand of ´journalism.´

The Left which of course includes “the media” knows what they have done to everybody not in their protected elite cult. They are right to fear now that the tables of power are turned. If those not in the cult were to be as cutthroat as they have been and continue to be there would be bloody’ell to pay. They are projecting how they would react and not waiting for retribution. In Trump and the swell of support for him they see that we may be ready to remove the white gloves and go bare knuckles against their brass knuckles. That’s too close to a fair fight for their comfort.

Most journalists are Democrats, hate Trump, are certainly overreacting, and are dishonest in their reporting that is designed to create as much controversy as possible.

Howard Kurtz is a complete jerk. I watched this interview Kurtz did everything but stand on his head to confuse Kelly Ann. She is sooooo far out of Kurtz´s league. He should go back to CNN he would fit right in This is my last time watching his stupid show.

Google is a monopoly —

The Week, by Ryan Cooper    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/21/2017 3:20:08     Post Reply
Five to 10 years ago, independent bloggers used to be able to get by on internet advertising, like the broadsheets of yore. But that changed quite quickly, and for two big reasons: Facebook and Google. They now gobble up the vast majority of internet advertising dollars — about 85 percent, as my colleague Jeff Spross writes — and a great many media outlets have been forced to move to direct subscriptions or other business models. Google and Facebook manage this because they are platform monopolists. They can exert tremendous influence through their control of how people use the internet —

Fox News Will Replace Bill

In the wake of Bill O’Reilly’s ouster, Fox News Channel issued a talking points memo of its own: Its primetime lineup will maintain a similar tone and attitude even without the person who was arguably the network’s most recognizable anchor. Tucker Carlson, who has held forth in primetime at 9 p.m. and delivered solid ratings, will move to O’Reilly’s 8 p.m. slot starting Monday, April 24. Fox News will fill Carlson’s former berth with its panel show, “The Five,” while keeping Sean Hannity at 10 p.m. More to come…

Remembering the Texas City Explosion

Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2017 1:10:32     Post Reply
Filmmaker Jay Thames was six years old when his grandfather first told him about the Texas City disaster. He was too young to completely grasp the magnitude of the event, but he’d never seen his grandfather Jesse, a World War II veteran and local businessman, get so emotional. In many ways, Thames has been turning that story into a script ever since, drawing out the details from Jesse little by little. Years of this research will finally come together in Thames’s upcoming film, Texas City. The morning of April 16, 1947, the S.S. Grandcamp was docked in Texas City when a

Energy Secretary Rick Perry ordered a study Friday examining to what extent solar and wind power are hurting what the Trump administration considers reliable forms of coal power. Perry, a Texas Republican who served as governor of an energy-rich state, wants the Energy Department to undergo a 60-day review of the energy grid to determine if green energy subsidies are hurting more reliable forms of energy like natural gas and coal. “We are blessed as a nation to have an abundance of domestic energy resources, such as coal, natural gas,” Perry wrote in a memo to his chief of staff,

   

 

  


 
CNN´s Story Contradicting Devin
Nunes on Susan Rice Is Based
Entirely on Anonymous Sources
Weekly Standard, by Mark Hemingway    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/12/2017 4:56:36     Post Reply
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes has been in the news recently because a source in the intelligence community informed him that Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice was behind the "unmasking" of Trump campaign associates in intelligence reports, which may have led to other members of the intelligence community leaking classified information to the press for partisan political reasons. Nunes has been criticized for the way he handled and presented this information—not without reason—as he rushed to the press with it before handing it over to the rest of the intelligence committee. As a result, Nunes has recused himself

White House Senior Adviser Jared Kushner is leading an unprecedented effort to meddle in the White House´s National Security Council, causing mayhem for senior staff who say the president´s son-in-law is interfering in key foreign policy debates, according to Trump administration officials who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon. Kushner has taken aggressive action to micro-manage the NSC, overshadowing even recently installed National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, according to sources both inside and outside the White House who described Kushner´s behavior as highly unusual and damaging to the country´s national security infrastructure. Never before has a White House permitted such a figure

Dallas´ "Mega March" An Enthusiastic Bust
Dallas Observer, by Stephen Young    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/11/2017 8:58:54     Post Reply
The last time Dallas´ Latino leadership organized a march of this intended scale, in 2006, attendance was estimated at somewhere between 400,000 and 500,000. This time, even before the march, organizers guessed attendance might be 100,000. On Sunday, they claimed after the event that 20,000 people showed up to march through downtown Dallas to Dallas City Hall for rights and respect for Dallas´ immigrant and refugee population. After the march, Dallas police estimated 3,200 people marched and attended the subsequent rally. The differences between Mega March 2006 and Sunday´s edition didn´t just include the number of participants. A decade ago, marchers were

It started off as a Texas version of the Sharks versus the Jets. In 2013, the Bandidos, the oldest, biggest, and most-feared outlaw motorcycle club in the state, learned that members of the Cossacks, a rapidly growing rival club, had begun wearing patches on the backs of their vests that read “Texas” in capital letters. For decades, the Bandidos had decreed that the Texas “bottom rocker” patch belonged only to them. If another club wanted to wear the patch, it would have to receive permission from the Bandidos and pay them dues. But the Cossacks contended that the Bandidos had

Washington-The Senate Friday morning confirmed Neil Gorsuch, a 49-year-old federal judge who could help cement a conservative majority on the bench for decades, to the Supreme Court, according to a CNN count of the vote. The vote was 54-45, mostly along party lines. Only three Democrats: Sens. Joe Manchin, Heidi Heitkamp and Joe Donnelly, sided with the GOP majority. Vice President Mike Pence presided over the vote, but was not needed to break a tie. The court has been operating with eight justices since the sudden death in February 2016 of Justice Antonin Scalia and a protracted fight over President Barack Obama´s

Embattled White House strategist Steve Bannon vowed he wasn’t going quietly into the night after being purged from the National Security Council — declaring “I love a gunfight,” it was reported Thursday. Bannon, a fervent nationalist and presidential adviser made the combative remark to pals within the past 24 hours, the political website Axios reported. A cascade of White House leaks said Bannon was tired of the constant infighting among the various factions vying for Trump’s attention and support and was ready to hang it up. But Bannon — and one of the masterminds of Trump’s campaign — called those rumors “100 percent

In a world of instant gratification that too often rewards boastful rhetoric over definitive accomplishments, Mitch McConnell stands out for his patience. The Senate majority leader expends political capital with ruthless efficiency, using it only when it can accomplish precisely what he intends. McConnell doesn’t start many fights; he finishes them. As the Senate moves toward confirmation of Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, that is exactly what is happening: McConnell is ending a fight that a young senator named Chuck Schumer started nearly 15 years ago by rallying the first-ever

Gun Sales Have Fallen
Since Obama Left Office
Daily Caller, by Will Racke    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/3/2017 9:51:10     Post Reply
The gun industry may be headed for a slump after eight years of explosive growth under former President Barack Obama. From December through February, the number of federal background checks conducted each month declined from the same month a year ago, according to the Associated Press. While not an exact measure of total firearm sales, background checks are considered a key measure of how gun manufacturers are performing. One reason for the softening demand, some gun industry experts say, is that potential gun buyers are no longer worried Washington will issue new regulations restricting gun sales.

Donald Trump has a “dangerous mental illness” and is not fit to lead the US, a group of psychiatrists has warned during a conference at Yale University. Mental health experts claimed the President was “paranoid and delusional”, and said it was their “ethical responsibility” to warn the American public about the “dangers” Mr Trump’s psychological state poses to the country. (Snip) James Gilligan, a psychiatrist and professor at New York University, told the conference he had worked some of the “most dangerous people in society”, including murderers and rapists — but that he was convinced by the “dangerousness” of Mr

The Obamas have been taking a much-deserved break from politics since moving out of the White House. But next week, it´s back to reality. President Barack Obama will be in Chicago on Monday to discuss community organization and civic engagement. As we all know, the Obamas have impeccable taste in food, so it wouldn´t be surprising to see the former president surveying the Chicago dining scene when he returns stateside. Will he visit the renowned Alinea? Or return to an old Obama favorite, Spiaggia?

Steel yourselves. Barack Obama’s about to emerge from the shadows — and first stop, University of Chicago. Why there? No doubt, it’s one of the more receptive breeding grounds for his particular brand of activism — the activism he’ll be touting to malleable student-age minds while engaging in, as his people called it, a “conversation about community organizing and civic engagement.” Make no mistake about it. This is about teaching the upcoming generation, loud as it already is about all topics that offend, to get even louder, even Leftist Prouder, and to — here’s the gist — use that Leftist

A Chicago artist has finished his mural of Michelle Obama in a colorful image that features the former first lady as an Egyptian queen. The painting by artist Chris Devins was completed Friday on the southeast corner of Chappel Avenue and 74th Street in South Shore. That´s two blocks from the former first lady´s childhood home at 7436 S. Euclid Ave. and across the street from Bouchet Elementary, which she attended when it was known as Bryn Mawr School. "I wanted to present her as what I think she is, so she´s clothed as an Egyptian queen. I thought that was appropriate,"

The student government at Western Kentucky University on Tuesday voted in favor of giving free tuition to black students. The school’s Student Government Associationpassed a resolution by 19-10 supporting slavery reparations for black students in the form of free tuition and free access to the public Bowling Green campus. The resolution also recommends that the university create a task force to “assess the feasibility of test-optional admissions and geographically-weighted admissions,” claiming that some standardized testing poses a disadvantage for needy students and perpetuates inequality and “white supremacy,” The Bowling Green Daily News reported. “We demand reparations for the systemic denial of access to

A Harvard University office devoted to LGBT issues reportedly has issued a flier telling students that gender identity can change as frequently as “day to day.” The flier from the Ivy League schools BGLTQ Student Life office, headlined “Get the facts about gender diversity,” informs readers that “Sex assigned at birth and gender identity are not necessarily the same,” Campus Reform reported Thursday. The flyer adds that “gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, hormonal makeup, physical anatomy, and/or how one is perceived in daily life.” The document also seems to categorize speech that challenges or disagrees with transgenderism as “violence.” “Transphobic misinformation is a

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) says she thinks Democrats can win back House control in 2018. Asked Thursday by Texas Tribune CEO Evan Smith if there are enough winnable districts for Democrats, Pelosi replied, “Yes, indeed.” She said there are more than 40 seats held by the GOP that are considered more favorable to Democrats than the suburban Atlanta district where Democrat Jon Ossoff came within 3 points of winning an all-party primary on Tuesday. Georgia´s 6th Congressional District, which became vacant after former Rep. Tom Price became Secretary of Health and Human Services, has been held by the GOP

Outraged Muslims are reportedly planning a May 1 demonstration at the Amazon headquarters in Seattle, Washington. The company is under fire after several Muslim security guards demanded time and space to pray five times a day, while on the job. The guards contend in a lawsuit filed this week that the subcontractor who employs them does not appropriately accommodate their faith and retaliates against those who speak out. The Service Employees International Union and the guards allege that Amazon grants high-earning tech workers conference rooms to pray in, but they do not provide the same accommodation for contracted security officers

By his twenties, Kyle Kaylor imagined he would be living on his own, nearing a college degree, and on his way to a job that fulfilled him. Instead, at 21, he found himself out of school, living with his parents, and "stuck" working as a manager at a fast food restaurant scraping to make hand-to-mouth. Launching into adulthood has been tricky, he said. "It became too difficult financially to be in school and not working," says Kaylor, who dropped out of Lincoln Christian University, in Illinois, after one semester because of a money crunch. "And without schooling, you can´t get a job that
