Vlad Lenin is supposed to have once said that a lie told often enough becomes the truth. A sentiment then parroted by Adolf Hitler in Mein Kampf. It’s hard to argue their point, given what passes for climate change news here in the Pacific Northwest. Alternatively, at least it used to be. According to our governor, Jay Inslee, Western Washington is already in the middle of a drought. Meaning that, in normal Seattle-speak, it hasn’t rained for three days. In Jay’s panicked opinion, we’re locked in a heatwave so intense that it might be given disaster status.

In the Atlanta area there was an oak tree that just had to be protected from the advancing rapid rail line. The protesters claimed the tree had been there since the civil war. School kids marched and held signs. Oak trees typically only live about 90 years. So at increased cost they moved parts of the station to protect that oak. Shortly after the station was built lightning struck same tree and killed it. When cut down the rings were counted. It had actually sprouted in the early 1900's like most of the oak tress around the area. There was a big campaign to plant oak trees in the first part of that century. So most of them were coming due in 1980's and 90's. Ironic that school kids 30 years ago would want to protect a tree that was growing during the civil war. Today they would want to cut it down and turn it into sawdust for the same offense.

A few months ago the Seattle Times started a new policy for making comments after their stories. They won't allow comments from any articles from the New York Times, Washington Post, Reuters or Associated Press. They say they'll only allow comments on stories that are local. But, not if the story is in any way 'controversial'. In other words, there aren't very many stories where anyone can make a comment so in this way they have silenced all their conservative readers. I thought I was the only one who had noticed their focusing on the so-called drought in Seattle these past few months, it hasn't rained as much as normal but it's certainly not a drought.

Calls for censorship: The last desperate gasp of our dying legacy media 2 replies

It’s sometimes hard to know if the folks at The New York Times are simply trolling us or if they’re completely serious. Times reporter Kevin Roose spun quite a yarn last Sunday entitled, “The Making of a YouTube Radical.” By radical, he and his paper mean those free-thinking Americans whose ideas lack the proper vetting from, well, them. Those that require censorship.

The late publisher of the Washington Post, Katharine Graham, once said, “News is what someone wants to suppress. Everything else is advertising.” No one knows the truth of this observation better today than the dwindling number of conservatives still clinging by their fingernails onto their social media accounts. In an increasingly blatant move toward outright censorship, America’s key social networks are uniting to suppress conservatives and boost their cherished left-wing fantasies.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Wednesday knocked reports that President Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was going to be moved into solitary confinement in her district, calling the punishment “torture.” “Paul Manafort is being sent to solitary confinement in my district - Rikers Island. A prison sentence is not a license for gov torture and human rights violations. That’s what solitary confinement is. Manafort should be released, along with all people being held in solitary,” the New York Democrat tweeted.

The first hint that something of an alliance existed between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the international reach of the Deep State was provided by Michael Morell.

During the Japanese bombardment of Shanghai in 1932, the Austrian essayist Karl Kraus was anguishing over the placement of commas in a column. It might seem futile at such a moment, he told a friend, but “if those who are obliged to look after commas had always made sure they were in the right place, then Shanghai would not be burning.” George Orwell made a kindred observation about the importance of having the courage to call things by their real names. Euphemism, the counterfeit of good manners, is the enemy of truth, which is the only ally worth having.

In June of 2016, the British people voted to reject the European Union’s authoritarian rule over the UK and reassert their sovereignty. And so, Brexit was a big winner at the polls. But two years later, Britain remains a vassal state to the bureaucratic minions of the EU. All due to the inaction of the ruling Conservative Party, also known as the Tories. A party once shepherded by Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, who said: “I had the patriotic conviction that, given great leadership of the sort I heard from Winston Churchill in the radio broadcasts to which we listened, there was almost nothing that the British people could not do.”

“What’s your pitch to the swing voter on the fence?” ABC’s George Stephanopoulos asked President Trump on Sunday. Questions of this sort are gifts to politicians, but interviewers ask them for a couple of reasons. One, they’re civic-minded. Politicians deserve the opportunity to make their cases straightforwardly — and voters deserve to hear them. Second, they save time. (Snip) Trump’s initial answer started off following the standard script. He got four words off that must have had his political advisors cheering, “Safety, security, great economy.” Ideally, this is where Trump should have stopped talking.

In April 1944, two Slovakian Jews named Alfred Weczler and Rudolf Vrba escaped from Auschwitz, and provided one of the first eyewitness accounts of the horrors of the European concentration camps. Both men had been rounded up with a group of their countrymen and sent to the Birkenau section of the camp in the spring of 1941, where they were immediately put to work as slave labor. This was before the German regime had properly streamlined and industrialized efforts to destroy European Jewry. In the early days of the camp, any man
