This is CNN . . . in 1945
American Greatness, by Victor Davis Hanson

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 1/16/2018 11:06:35 AM

What if something like CNN and modern communications were around in early 1945? What if the rules of presidential news coverage were then as they are now? And what if such a mythical CNN hated Franklin Delano Roosevelt as much as it despises Donald Trump, then as right-wing as it is now hard left? How would the daily news in a mythical 1945 treat a now-iconic FDR? What would the country have thought of its president? In the manner that we’ve learned that Donald Trump supposedly eats double servings of fast food and gulps down a dozen diet sodas a day,

Clever and true.

The champions of "Fairness", "Equality" and "Tolerance" are, in fact, hateful bigots and Marxist idealogs. VDH has, IMHO, come further and further to the Right over the last few years. This article elaborates on an issue that has been clear to Conservatives since the days of Walter Chronkite, Huntley & Brinkley and 95% of everyone else in the News Biz.

However.....news has always been partisan. A century ago one would buy a printing press and promote one´s POV. We dare not call for "Fairness" (like the pencil-neck Socialists would) but rather we must re-double our efforts to open more and better and bigger outlets for the truth.

Sux that Google/Twitter/Facebook are all Left...all the time.

Taking back the colleges must also happen.

All you need to know about the Left and how they treat opponents can be found reading old newsprint accounts about Abe Lincoln.

Or go back to Jefferson; the first candidate that we know hired opposition research. The guy may be the origin of the story of the affair of Jefferson with a slave girl on his estate - started when Jefferson objected to the ´gentleman´s´ bill for services rendered.

I´d pay to see a book of the CNN treatment on all the Democrat Presidents back to and including Wilson. A common thread would be ´the candidate welcomed the party´s special speaker, the Grand Kleggle of the KKK...´

VDH forgot to add:

"President Roosevelt is most likely a horrible racist. We are informed by numerous close associates that he has hated Asian peoples since before he became President. This year he placed all his Executive power behind denying Japanese-Americans their Constitutional rights, seized their possessions, and imprisoned them against their will and without charge in military internment camps. Never before has an American President acted with such hostility against specific ethnic minority group."

It was the press who covered for the loathesome FDR throught his reign. It was the press who blamed Hoover for everything. And did likewise for the even viler and more despicable Woodrow Wilson, the the lasting damage to the nation. Before that, it was the press that agitated until we had the Spanish-American War, again to our lasting damage.
It is by no means a new thing. At least in the time of Mark Twain, there were normally at least two newspapers in a city, with opposite views. Now, with the de facto monopolies of the AP, Gannett, the major networks, the Slimes, and the disappearance of competing papers, there is a definite echo chamber.

Former vice president Joe Biden is back in the news yet again. For a second time, he seems surprised that poor residents of the inner city are capable of doing sophisticated jobs: We don’t think ordinary people can do things like program, code. It’s not rocket science, guys. So, we went and we hired some folks to go into the neighborhoods and pick 58 women, as it turns out, from the hood, for a 17-week program, if my memory serves me correctly, to learn how to code. In 2014 Biden had said about the same thing about women from the “hood”: They asked

Millions of dollars in suitcases

MINNEAPOLIS - For five months, Fox 9 has been investigating what appears to be rampant fraud in a massive state program. This fraud is suspected of costing Minnesota taxpayers as much as $100 million a year. The Fox 9 Investigators reporting is based on public records and nearly a dozen government sources who have direct knowledge of what is happening. These sources have a deep fear, and there is evidence to support their concerns, that some of that public money is ending up in the hands of terrorists. This story begins at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, where mysterious suitcases

The ´Election Collusion´ Was between
Our Intelligence Community and Britain

As I will explain, the widespread notion that Russia and Trump colluded to beat Hillary has long been demonstrable bunk. What seems more clear each day is that there was collusion between certain members of the U.S. and British intelligence communities to spy on the Trump campaign. This may explain, in large part, the reluctance of the Department of Justice to reveal what it knows publicly. After all -- with rare exceptions -- the two countries’ intelligence services have long had important information gathering and sharing agreements, and exposure of this may harm the traditional reciprocal relationship. Whether the British

Phyllis McGinley and the Left’s

W. H. Auden, perhaps the 20th century’s preeminent English-language poet, lionized Phyllis McGinley and wrote the introduction to her Pulitzer Prize–winning poetry collection Times Three in 1960. (Snip) No, what consigned McGinley to the dustbin of literary history was her politics. And in the un-personing of McGinley, we can get a glimpse of the Left’s simultaneous ruthlessness and cultural hegemony. Simply put, McGinley’s thought crime was that she was a happy, Christian, suburban mother and housewife who extolled both her life in the suburbs and traditional roles for women. For the Left, her failure to be miserable and

On May 15, 1939, philosopher John Dewey issued a statement to the press announcing the formation of the Committee for Cultural Freedom. (Snip) It was the existence of Popular Front groups who toed the Stalinist line in science, literature, social thought, and the arts that moved the committee´s chief organizer, Sidney Hook, to action. "It seemed to me that it was necessary to challenge this massive phenomenon that was corrupting the springs of liberal opinion and indeed making a mockery of common sense," Hook wrote in his autobiography, Out of Step (1987).

Trump’s Iran Deal Decision Was a Masterstroke
Breitbart Jerusalem, by Caroline Glick    Original Article

Opponents of President Donald Trump claim that President Donald Trump’s decision to leave the Iran deal blocks any chance of a new agreement with Tehran and wrecks U.S. credibility with its allies. Trump’s supporters, for their part, argue that the president opened up the possibility of negotiating a better deal with the ayatollahs by abandoning his predecessor’s lopsided nuclear pact. Both sides are wrong. And, more to the point, they miss the larger picture. For more than twenty years, successive U.S. administrations have been vexed by the challenge of Iran’s illicit pursuit of nuclear weapons. And from the time the problem first

The fate of Obama´s JCPOA Iran deal was clear when Donald J. Trump became America´s 45th president. The new commander-in-chief? inherently knew that President Obama´s so-called "legacy "deal actually facilitated our enemies in Tehran, as it released more than $140 billion to the mullahs, had no effect on Iranian ballistic missile capability, created a risible inspection regime, and included a sunset clause which meant that nuclear weapons acquisition by Iran was simply delayed, not in fact prevented. And after Prime Minister Netanyahu gave his commanding performance on Iran´s secret AMAD Program that had

We have lost our culture to the Cultural Marxists and, increasingly, our liberty to the Rogue Ruling Class™. It is easy to despair. But, in the late 1970s, it was also hard to believe we could defeat Soviet Communism. Then three courageous people—Pope John Paul II, Margaret Thatcher, and Ronald Reagan—changed the world. Reflecting on that, Robert Reilly describes what we must do today to win our war: Language, then, and the restoration of its relationship with reality were critical to the Communist collapse. This was no small feat since, for many in the West, words had lost their meaning. A recovery

Watching Netanyahu in Tehran

The same day Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu revealed that Israel seized Iran’s archive of its military nuclear program in Tehran and spirited it to Israel, a video was posted of IDF soldiers singing Soltane Ghalbha, a traditional Persian love song – in Persian. Taken together, the two events demonstrate the purpose of Netanyahu’s presentation. Netanyahu’s detractors in the US and Israel called his presentation as a dog and pony show. “He didn’t tell us anything we haven’t known for years,” they sniffed. Moreover, they insisted, Netanyahu’s presentation was actually counterproductive because he couldn’t show evidence that Iran is in breach

There have been exciting developments in the "Russia investigation". There always are, because that is the nature of open-ended money-no-object investigations. But, to me, the most interesting development was the testimony of Michael Caputo, who appeared just before me on Tucker Carlson´s show last night. Mr Caputo was, briefly, a very minor Trump campaign aide - and so his life has been destroyed. As he told the Senate Intelligence Committee yesterday: In 2009, my wife and I moved to my hometown of East Aurora, New York to have a family. Making far less money back home, we had a far

The nation has been transfixed with the story of Jack Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Colorado, and how the Supreme Court will hold in his landmark First Amendment case. But his story didn’t begin at the Supreme Court. It never does. As the highest appellate court, the Supreme Court reviews the facts and issues of law at the trial level. Usually, this means that a judge previously made some ruling, perhaps in the context of a jury trial or preliminary issues that come before the court. But Phillips’ case didn’t start out that way. He never saw a judge who was

A recently engaged couple from Florida were kidnapped at gunpoint, robbed and severely beaten on a trip to Mexico when they were supposed to be looking at wedding venues. Frank and Jennifer Massabki said they were lucky to survive and are still reeling from the terrifying ordeal in Mexico City in May last year. Jennifer, who was almost raped by one of their attackers, suffered a broken nose in the ordeal and had to undergo emergency surgery in a US hospital days later. Horrifying photos show them sitting at a police station in their blood-soaked clothes soon after they managed to escape.

Wednesday on Bloomberg, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) said the government should “start talking about” regulating pay disparities between CEOs and the average worker. Ellison said, “As you know, under the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Act, it became required that the publicly traded companies would have to report the ratio between CEO pay and the median worker. It took about five years or more for the Securities Exchange Commission to create a rule. They finally did so now we have a data set of about 225 public the traded companies.

A family-of-five say they have never been happier after selling their five-bedroom house and everything in it - in order to move into a 180sq ft trailer. Renovator Dino Petrone, 36, blogger Ashley, 32 and sons Gabe, 8, Gavin, 7 and daughter Quinn, 4, from Ventura County, had what many would consider an ´ordinary´ life in California. However when the family stumbled across a piece of land they described as ´perfect´, they decided to downsize in order to make it their own, swapping their family home for the $8,000 (£5,900) trailer, which they´ve turned into a luxurious abode to rival

A woman in the audience said that she couldn’t see any difference between President Trump and Adolf Hitler.

Free Markets: Big businesses in Seattle face a substantial new tax to build more affordable housing. This is after the city thwarted private developers who were building affordable housing on their own dime. Only to government officials could this make any sense. This week, the city council unanimously passed a "head tax" of $275 per full-time worker on any company in the city that makes more than $20 million in gross revenues. The city says the $48 million in new taxes will go toward affordable housing and providing emergency services for the city´s swelling homeless population. Major employers like Amazon.com

He has not played since he opted out of his contract following that season. “If Kaepernick can show an agreement among owners to
