The Marriage of the Media and the Security State

Original Article

Posted By: Garnet, 4/24/2023 12:59:42 AM

It is now all too obvious that the corporate media colluded with corrupt elements of the security state to alter the outcomes of two presidential elections. Their first foray into election interference failed because, in 2016, they underestimated the power of social media and allowed Donald Trump to speak directly to the voters. They fixed that problem in 2020 by convincing Facebook and Twitter to censor legitimate news stories while disseminating disinformation. And it is no coincidence that former Obama and current Biden administration officials were involved in both interference schemes.

The joe biden directed letter signed by 50 ex-cia agents could hedge it's language thanks to a conplicit media that interpreted that letter as complete backing for the view that the "Hunter laptop was just Russian disinformation." Without this marriage of media and security state joe never would have been elected.

Would the "security state" include the lame duck potus who initiated a secret investigation of an incoming potus based on the false narrative that his party concocted? When does that loathsome commicrat get to answer for that? Everything was done to facilitate Oblabber's subterfuge of a duly elected US President.

The system of Big Business working with the Government to run a country has a name. The name was given to it by the Italian who invented it back in the 1930's, Benito Mussolini. The name? FASCISM.

It cannot be overstated just how lousy of a speaker Kamala Harris is. Always. She’s become known for her expertise in tossing a word salad every time she speaks. Did you notice that Kamala appears 13 times in Joe Biden’s video announcing his decision to run for reelection? The video was three minutes long and she didn’t speak a single word.(Snip)That wasn’t an oversight. That was deliberate. No one can trust that she is going to sound like she knows what she is saying. Joe Biden is bad enough, and fortunately, he didn’t bust out the creepy old man voice,

Tucker Carlson, who was abruptly fired by Fox News this week, has a theory about why he was let go from the network. If he’s right, the implications are quite significant. Though he hasn’t said anything about this in public, Carlson believes that the network is on the verge of being sold by the Murdoch family. “Carlson has told people he doesn’t know why he was terminated. According to the source, [Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott] refused to tell him how the decision was made; she only said that it was made ‘from above.’ Carlson has told people he believes his controversial show is being taken off the

Tucker Carlson is out at Fox News, and his enemies are aflutter with media-industry schadenfreude. Contrary to their self-image, most media types—including in right-wing journalism—are highly risk-averse and deferential in the extreme to the imperatives of power. So they can’t help crowing “Aha! Aha!” when a genuinely defiant and independent-minded figure among them appears to stumble. Such a figure is Carlson. Beginning in 2016, he anchored the most interesting and important news show on television. He soon emerged as a tribune for populist opponents of endless war and Big Tech-enabled censorship and surveillance, at his best ripping into the GOP’s plutocracy caucus as well as mainstream Democrats.

Hunter Biden is hiding out at the $50 million vineyard owned by major Democrat donor Joe Kiani. Hunter Biden and his wife Melissa Cohen escaped for a getaway Friday at the vineyard. Kiani, a medical device company executive, is a major door to Joe Biden. The couple and their Secret Service detail arrived at the location, about three hours north of LA in Santa Barbara wine country in a four-car motorcade. Does a four-car motorcade seem excessive for a president’s grown son? Maybe it’s just me. Hunter must be feeling the stress of the lawsuit in Arkansas closing in on him and the congressional investigations

I wouldn’t exactly call Tucker Carlson a friend. As you have probably already heard, this morning Tucker abruptly left his position as the most powerful anchor at Fox News, or anywhere on television. I’ve never had a beer or a coffee off-set with Tucker. We have very similar views on some issues, like the dangers of cannabis and mRNA jabs, but very different on others like Ukraine. And I only got to know him when he was already hugely successful. Adults have a hard time becoming close under those circumstances. I’ve never wanted to be the guy asking Tucker (or Elon) for favors - aside from the favor

"Can you imagine if something like this had happened in the Trump years? If Republicans had threatened someone like Jim Acosta with five years in prison over a minor error?

RFK Jr. announced his bid for the Democratic presidential nomination yesterday. He seeks to wrest it from the presumptive (and presumptuous) Democratic candidate Joe Biden. RCP — not to be confused with RFK — has posted video, clips, and text of Kennedy’s announcement here. I found much to like in the substance and tone of Kennedy’s announcement. I enjoyed his tribute to his wife, Cheryl Hines, and to his family — the quick and the dead. He attacked the merger of state and corporate power. I wish he would expand the attack to woke corporate America. It would complement his professed desire to overcome the divisions

Here we go again. It seems as if every other election cycle or so for the past few decades has produced dreams of a centrist third party "unity" ticket that would appeal to all the Americans who say they want the partisan bickering in Washington to stop. The Beltway media gets excited at the idea of "the grown-ups" being in charge and the Big Money Boys lick their chops at the prospect of a party based entirely on their needs and their needs alone. This year it looks like the perennial group that calls itself No Labels has decided to throw a monkey wrenchCORRECTION*

The Democratic Party and President Joe Biden are wrecking the country. Their ongoing economic blunders, perverse cultural agenda, and corrupt foreign policy, if unchecked in the near future, will turn the United States into a dystopian nightmare comparable to Venezuela. This can be averted if former President Donald Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis run together on the 2024 Republican presidential ballot. Neither can win in 2024 without the other, even if the Democratic alternative is an unpopular incumbent whose running mate is a running joke.

“Real Time” host Bill Maher warned the Democrats on his show Friday that if they fail to remember history, they are doomed to repeat it. They’re all thinking that they’ve “finally got him,” when it comes to former President Donald Trump over the prosecution filed by Alvin Bragg about money allegedly paid to Stormy Daniels.Maher pointed out how America didn’t hold the “sex scandal” against Bill Clinton regarding Monica Lewinsky when it came to voting, and that they seemed to ignore his perjury. Clinton got impeached, but then he still had a high approval rating. Warning for graphic language:

If you bought stock in U-Haul in the past couple of years, your retirement account is probably looking better than a lot of other people’s. (Particularly those who invested in Budweiser.) If it feels like there’s a lot of traffic on the roads these days, particularly along the east coast, it’s not your imagination. And most of that traffic is heading south. In the first three months of 2023, more than ten thousand people fled New York and relocated to Florida. If things keep going at this pace, Ron DeSantis is going to run out of places to put them all.

Joe Biden's ex-chief of staff has blamed Kamala Harris's poor approval ratings on 'racism and sexism'. Ron Klain, who stepped down as the president's top aide in January, said her critics were guilty of prejudice towards the 58-year-old former senator from California. The long-time Democratic political consultant said in an interview on Thursday that Harris 'takes a lot of grief unjustifiably.' 'I do think sexism and racism are part of the problem, no question about it,' Klain said.

This should be embarrassing, even for a seriously self-centered politician so filled with hubris and visions of grandeur that he cannot see anything except his own magnanimity. Alas, for the Narcissus Top Gov and the branding organization behind him, no scale of hubris exclaimed is excessive enough. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was in Israel Thursday, doing the obligatory indulgency tour all Republican presidential candidates must undertake before they officially announce. During his pre-planned events, DeSantis took credit for moving the U.S-Israel embassy to Jerusalem.

Egypt has accused Netflix of misrepresenting history by casting a Black woman to play Cleopatra, its most famous historical figure, in a new series. “Queen Cleopatra,” which is released May 10, features Adele James in the lead role, a casting decision that the streaming giant says is “a nod to the centuries-long conversation about the ruler’s race” but which officials in Cairo have dismissed as “blatant historical fallacy.” The government statement issued Thursday marked an escalation in a feud that has sparked demands for the show's cancellation, amid a broader debate over representation in popular culture.

Fox News is trying to sideline former Tucker Carlson Tonight host Tucker Carlson through the 2024 election, multiple sources familiar with the matter told Breitbart News. Carlson’s current contract runs through December 2024, and as of now three sources familiar with the matter told Breitbart News that executives at the network are trying to keep Carlson on contract and not release him until after the 2024 election. The shocking decision to cancel Carlson’s top-rated weeknight program came just days after the network shut down its top-rated weekend program with host Dan Bongino.

The New York Post reports on the confrontation that must have shocked Randi Weingarten, the head of the AFT who this past week falsely claimed to a congressional committee that she had fought every day to reopen schools, when, in fact, she and her union were the major force keeping them closed. A paid CNN commentator, Scott Jennngs, delivered the truth bomb.
From transgendered to 'transabled': Now
people are 'choosing' to identify as handicapped

Posted by Beardo 4/28/2023 9:58:46 PM Post Reply
A troubling societal issue called "transableism" is attracting attention these days. Transableism is a newer term for BIID, or "Body Integrity Identity Disorder," in which a person actually "identifies" as handicapped. BIID has been relabeled to transableism to align with today's trans community, according to some. The point of "changing the identifier" from a psychiatric condition (BIID) to an advocacy term (transableism) is to "harness the stunning cultural power of gender ideology" to the cause of allowing doctors to "treat" BIID patients by "amputating healthy limbs, snipping spinal cords or destroying eyesight," according to Evolution News and Science Today

The president's schedule has returned to the spotlight amid a new report claiming aides struggle to get the 80-year-old to do evening or morning events.

Gov. Kathy Hochul (D-NY) and state lawmakers reached an agreement to phase out natural gas hookups in new buildings beginning in 2025, a first-of-its-kind state law designed to reduce reliance on fossil fuels and transition to cleaner sources of energy. Hochul said Thursday she reached a handshake deal with lawmakers on the agreement, which was included in New York’s fiscal 2024 budget. Though the budget stops short of an explicit ban on natural gas appliances, it will ban natural gas hookups in most new residential and commercial buildings under seven stories beginning in 2026. By 2029, that will extend to larger industrial and commercial properties as well.

Dylan Mulvaney has already cost Bud Light what is assumed to be millions of dollars (17 percent drop in sales), but he’s not done causing chaos yet. The transgender “influencer” entered into the broader public eye after Joe Biden invited him to the White House back in 2022. Think about that. A president who hasn’t done a challenging interview since he took office found time to receive softballs from a grown man who pretends to be a prepubescent girl. But I digress. Mulvaney has been propped up by corporate America despite only claiming to be a “girl” for a little over a year.

Democrats have mostly given up on denying that Joe Biden is suffering from an advanced stage of dementia. Their strategy, as exemplified by their mouthpiece the New York Times, has shifted to a defense of senility. Do we need a mentally competent president? Nah. This morning’s Times email, which is curated by David Leonhardt, the Times’s “senior writer” who writes for “The Times’s flagship daily newsletter,” said this morning: "Strange as it may sound, the American government can function without a healthy president." Hey, Edith Wilson did a great job! The issue that makes many Democrats even more anxious than Biden’s second-term capabilities is whether his age will prevent him from winning a second
