Journalism Dies in Self-Importance
City Journal, by Lance Morrow

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 3/23/2019 5:04:44 AM

I suppose it’s true that “Democracy Dies in Darkness,” as the Washington Post’s slogan says. But journalism may also die, by morphing into forms that can no longer be described as journalism. Journalism may come to mean a crooked scandal sheet, or high-minded propaganda. Sometimes squalor and self-righteousness are equally disreputable. The Post’s apothegm, somehow off-kilter, with its alliteration and self-importance, was a purposeful bit of branding, designed to claim high ground and to poke a thumb in President Trump’s eye every morning. Such partisan intent detracts from the slogan’s claim to universality. The self-serving implication—the notion that,

The truly humorous side to this implosion is that Fox made its move to the Left at exactly the wrong time. I have no idea what their goal was after having enjoyed the number one slot for so long but I find it amusing that multi-millionaire liberals could be so stupid.

I would like to see all the fake news journalists have their heads shaved and marched down Pennsylvania Avenue. Traitors, who collaborated with Nazis in WW 2 were treated to such humiliation, before they were either imprisoned, or worse.

Real journalism is a thing of the past. Today, journalism is nothing more than an oxymoron.

Wapo may have to read this criticism, since it comes from a rather respected voice in the journalism business. I disagree with Morrow regularly, but I admire his outstanding writing style.

We mourn today with France,
with Christians, with all mankind
Washington Examiner, by Quin Hillyer    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 4/16/2019 5:34:00     Post Reply
Aujourd´hui, nous sommes tous français. Today, we are all French. Today, we gasp, we ache, we mourn. Today, we feel a nauseating sense of loss. Today, we weep. The Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is surely, along with St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, among the three most famous Christian churches in the world. And with good reason. It is — it was — magnificent. The sheer size of the cathedral was stunning. For it to have been commissioned 850 years ago, and finished, largely, 700 years ago, makes its achievement even more mind-boggling.

Bill Barr, Dirty Cops, and the O.J. Simpson Trial
Real Clear Politics, by Charles Lipson    Original Article

When Attorney General Bill Barr testified last week that, yes, “spying did occur” in the government’s Trump-Russia investigation and that spying on a political campaign is a “big deal,” the Democrats were apoplectic. How could he dare say such a thing? The saintly James Comey went even further. He told an audience that he didn’t even know what spying meant. No, siree, he had no idea. Barr’s candor is what Michael Kinsley famously called a “Washington gaffe,” where the naked truth somehow slips out. Naturally, it set off a firestorm. Democrats demanded an immediate retraction but got only an anodyne

   

 

  


 
´Climate refugees´ -- Democrats´
new tool to kill U.S. borders
Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley    Original Article

The left has a new tool to bring illegals to America — to wedge border doors a bit wider in defiance of law and order — and it goes like this: climate change. The weather. The weather is making people flee their countries and come to America. And as the left sees it, America has a duty — an obligation — to let these poor people in and take care of them. Wow. This is a new low even for the left. It’s U.N.-speak, pure and simple. While discussing President Donald Trump’s proposal to relocate immigrants to sanctuary cities on NBC’s “Meet the Press,”

California, Blinded By Plastic
City Journal, by Kerry Jackson    Original Article

California, the Los Angeles Times recently reported, is building a “non-plastic future.” The state has outlawed or restricted single-use plastic bags, plastic drinking straws, and plastic cutlery. Future targets: plastic detergent bottles, unattached caps on plastic bottles, and polystyrene containers (typically used to hold restaurant takeout orders), which more than 100 California cities have already banned. Some legislators also want to ban travel-size shampoo bottles that hotels provide for guests. Golden State consumers are schlepping groceries in their arms as if they’ve been sent backward to the pre-bag era, sucking on paper straws that quickly become sodden and useless,

Five arguments the Mueller report won´t settle

Attorney General William Barr has promised to release a redacted version of the Mueller report this week. It will of course consume the political conversation for days, but even now it is clear that, as much as the report might be talked about, it will not settle the main arguments that have raged about the Trump-Russia affair for more than two years. Here are five debates that won´t be resolved, no matter how much of the report Barr makes public: 1. Collusion. On the face of it, Barr´s summary of Mueller´s conclusion could not be clearer:

The sheer size of our government workforce

After eight years of reckless expansion of the federal workforce under Barack Obama, Donald Trump vowed to downsize the wildly growing bureaucracy of Washington. In 2016, he promised to “cut so much your head will spin.” However, during the first two years of his presidency, there has been no significant effort to reduce the bloated federal payrolls. In fact, the federal government is the largest employer in the nation. Walmart, which has a presence in communities of all shapes and sizes, is the largest private employer in the nation with 1.5 million workers. Yet the number of Americans who rely

Media Matters to Dem Candidates:

The beginning of Media Matters for America´s "About" section reads thus: Media Matters for America is a Web-based, not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) progressive research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media. In reality, its mission is to obsess over and respond with histrionics to everything Fox News does. MMFA is probably FNC´s most loyal viewer. The site was founded by David Brock, a one-time conservative turned left-wing operative, so it has a real "crazy ex-girlfriend" feel to it.

Nobody In The GOP Is Inciting
Violence Against Ilhan Omar
The Federalist, by David Marcus    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 4/15/2019 4:46:51     Post Reply
Words have actual, distinct meanings. Somehow accepting this wisdom that is thousands of years old is something of a struggle in this, the 21st century. (Snip)The real danger in regard to Democrats accusing Republicans like Rep. Dan Crenshaw and Donald Trump, and outlets like the New York Post, of incitement to violence is that the charge is one of very few that can be used to erase First Amendment free speech protections. It’s no accident that this is the word being used. But it is an absurd accusation.

Obama Adviser´s Book is Ranked 1,030 on Amazon.
How Did It Make NYT´s Bestseller List?
Daily Caller, by Luke Roziak    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 4/15/2019 4:42:14     Post Reply
Valerie Jarrett, a top adviser to former President Barack Obama, published a book that ranks dismally on Amazon and at Barnes and Noble, but was placed on The New York Times Best Seller list. Anomalies around the book’s sales figures in industry databases have some in the book business questioning whether Jarrett, who’s rumored to have received a million-dollar-plus advance, paid a company to game the numbers. Her book, which was published April 2, is number 1,030 on Amazon’s list of top sellers and has only three reviews on the site. It similarly ranks 1,244 on Barnes and Noble

What is kratom? And why is it being
promoted as a ‘wellness’ product to our kids?
Fox News, by Nicole Saphier, M.D.    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 4/15/2019 4:36:26     Post Reply
My college-age son called me recently and asked me about “kratom,” saying that it was all over campus and even some of his friends were trying it. Thankfully, I got the phone call asking about what it was rather than him just hopping on the bandwagon of trying the latest trend. “What is it?” he asked. And for once, I had to admit, that although I had heard of it, I didn’t know much else about it. This concerned me on many levels. How is there a “wellness” product being promoted and sold

Stratolaunch: ´World´s largest plane´
lifts off for the first time

Posted By: MissMolly- 4/14/2019 5:41:04     Post Reply
The world´s largest aeroplane by wingspan has taken flight for the first time. Built by Stratolaunch, the company set up by the late Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen in 2011, the aircraft is designed to act as a flying launch pad for satellites. The idea is to fly the plane to 10 km (6.2 miles) before releasing satellites into orbit. Its 385 ft (117 m) wingspan is the length of an American football field. If successful, such a project would be a cheaper way to launch objects into space than rockets fired from the ground. The twin-fuselage six-engine jet flew

The wife of former New York Republican Sen. Alfonse D´Amato said she has gone to federal authorities, alleging that her husband committed bank fraud and that he forged her signature on checks from a secret bank account for millions of dollars spanning seven years. Katuria D’Amato, who has been in several rounds of legal battles with her husband over the last few weeks, said in an interview with Law&Crime that she found out about the account when the U.K.-based bank HSBC sent a letter to her home about the account opened in her name.

Cable news continued hailing Democrat Mayor Pete Buttigieg as the second coming Tuesday after he officially tossed his hat in the ring for the 2020 presidential race, Monday. Over at MSNBC, “center-right” columnist for the New York Times, David Brooks touted Buttigieg as the anti-Trump that America needed right now, in the wake of the “moral and spiritual crisis” that President Trump had created. MSNBC afternoon host Andrea Mitchell began by gushing with her guests over Buttigieg’s “stunning” and “moving” interview with Rachel Maddow about “coming out” as gay. Afterwards, she asked David Brooks to weigh in on Buttigieg and his

Too soon? While warm sparks were still spilling down from the ceilings at the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris, a Democratic lawmaker was using the blaze to describe President Trump. Rep. Steve Cohen, Tennessee Democrat, appeared Monday evening on MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews” show to tout his long crusade to impeach Mr. Trump and promptly reached for the fire. “What he has done to the Constitution and the rule of law is as bad as that fire did to Notre Dame. He’s torching the entire structure of government and the people’s respect for it.

During two separate occasions on Monday afternoon, Fox News anchors Shepard Smith and Neil Cavuto had to dump out of interviews after their guests wildly speculated and parroted conspiracy theories that the blaze that suddenly destroyed much of the historic Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris was an intentionally malicious act. While anchoring breaking-news coverage of the fire, Smith interviewed witness Philippe Karsenty, the deputy mayor of Neuilly-sur-Seine and a controversial right-wing media figure. Early in the call, Karsenty suggested that the Notre Dame blaze—which is currently being investigated as an accident—was a terrorist a

Democratic Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-CA) is running for president. He’s one of many who are hopping into the 2020 clown car. No, he probably won’t win the nomination. And yes, he would certainly lose against President Donald J. Trump. He’s also running on an issue that is only popular with the most insane of Democrats: gun confiscation. Swalwell has gone off the deep end with his absurd allegations that Donald Trump is an agent of the Kremlin. Yet, he’s been saying it for months. Even with the Mueller report torpedoing Democratic hopes of finding cause to impeach the president, the

Talking about the fire engulfing Notre Dame, where the cause is unknown, guest Philippe Karsenty began, “For the past years, we´ve had churches desecrated each and every week all over France.” Just seconds after his guest was introduced, Smith immediately jumped in and reprimanded, “Sir, sir, sir, we´re not going to speculate of the cause of something that we don´t know!

(Tweet) Loosely translated, Buttigieg´s message was, "To the people of France I would like to say that Notre-Dame Cathedral was like a gift to the human race. We share the pain but we also thank you for this gift to civilization."
