We Have Two Medias in This Country, and
They’re Going to Elect Donald Trump

Original Article

Posted By: rememberwhen, 9/19/2023 4:06:52 PM

It’s often asked in my circles: Why isn’t Joe Biden getting more credit for his accomplishments?... There is no one reason. But there is one overwhelming factor in play: the media. Or rather, the two medias... We reside in a media environment that promotes—whether it intends to or not—right-wing authoritarian spectacle. At the same time, as a culture, it’s consistently obsessed with who “won the day,” while placing far less value on the fact that the civic and democratic health of the country is nurtured through practices such as deliberation, compromise, and sober governance. The result is bad for Joe Biden. But it’s potentially tragic for democracy.


Laugher of the week. Case in point: "The right-wing media has more power to set the news agenda than the mainstream media." For an excellent sendup of the article, see Steven Hayward's "Comic Relief from the Left" in PowerLine.

What a bunch of bull. Even ultra liberals would know this guy is dishonest, and a fool. The right wing media publishes in lock step and the left wing media doesn't? That's a load of crap. There is no need ever to read the NYT AND the Washington Post. They are the same. There's no reason to watch ABC and CNN. They are the same. What would this author say about Ann Coulter? Is she right wing? Does she parrot Trump? She hates Trump with a passion. The Lincoln Project. Is that a conservative group? They hate Trump. I stopped reading after a while. The guy clearly is missing half his brain.

The left is represented by the overwhelming majority of media, academia, and the entertainment industry. But boy do they whine about the tiny sliver of conservative news sites. The left demands complete obeisance to their diktats.

Why isn’t Joe Biden getting more credit for his accomplishments? Because he doesn't really want credit for wrecking the country? He wants you drugged, and "Bud Light"-ed and "TikTok"-ed, and "Barbie"-ed, until it's over?

These left wing rags sure like to project what they are doing to destroy our freedom on Conservatives. Sure look forward to a second Trump Presidency to stop them from further damaging our country.

Thanks OP for the belly laugh! It's been a long time since I dipped my toe into a Lefty wading pool. C'mon, man! We have looked into the mind of our enemy and it is empty!

If Biden doesn't get credit for his accomplishments its because the media is protecting him by not reporting them. Most voters would run to the other side when they hear the truth about Boden's accomplishments. $7 gas, 25% inflation since 2021, 25 million illegals imported, crime at record highs are just a few of his great accomplishments. Please report his accomplishments.

t was February of 1992 and President George H. W. Bush, while out campaigning for reelection, gave a speech to the National Grocers Association. What could possibly go wrong? It was a non-event, evidenced by the fact that only one pool reporter was present, Gregg McDonald of the Houston Chronicle. Before Bush gave the speech, he toured the new grocer technology, including a state-of-the-art scanner that could weigh produce and read damaged bar codes. In his report, McDonald noted that the president had a "look of wonder" on his face as he admired the new technology.

How did the fascist left get the right to decree the meaning of every bloody word in the dictionary? If there’s one thing every nation’s socialist left has been good at, it’s propaganda and wordplay. Joseph Goebbels, Saul Alinsky, and others were masters at the art of lying with language. (Imagining with amusement, leftists out there losing their collective minds over the fact that we just dared to compare their hero to Saul Alinsky or the other way around, but I digress.) Let’s face it, the far left has weaponized the King’s English against our individual liberties and rights....

Nikki Haley had been paddling in the shallows of the Republican presidential race for six months, making few waves, when an unnamed senior adviser to President Biden confided to Politico two weeks ago, “If they nominate Nikki Haley, we’re in trouble.” It was an odd admission, given that the former South Carolina governor was polling at around 4 percent nationally. But then Haley last week delivered a strong debate performance, and a new leaked poll from Trump world showed her moving into third place in Iowa and New Hampshire.

On Monday, US District Judge Tanya Chutkan set a March 4 start date for former President Donald Trump’s federal criminal trial on charges of conspiring to overturn the 2020 election. “The public has a right to a prompt and efficient resolution of this matter,” Chutkan said.... Most obviously, with Trump as the current leading contender for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, Americans deserve to know before they vote in the general election if a jury of his peers finds him innocent or guilty of having tried to end the lawful transition of power after the 2020 election.

The best defense former President Donald Trump has against his indictment in Washington for multiple conspiracies to defraud the United States as part of the events of January 6, 2021, hinges on his purportedly sincere belief that he actually won the 2020 election. According to the prosecution, Trump and his co-conspirators attempted to “overturn the legitimate results of the 2020 presidential election by using knowingly false claims of election fraud to obstruct the federal government function by which those results are collected, counted, and certified.”

A district judge appointed by Joe Biden has ruled that parents in Montgomery County, Maryland, have no right to opt their children out of the school’s woke LGBTQ curriculum. United States District Judge Deborah L. Boardman ruled against the Muslim-led group of parents who did not want their children exposed to far-left propaganda about sex and gender. The parents sought an injunction before the first day of school on August 28 after the district changed its policies in March to no longer allow parents to opt their children out of being assigned books that advocate pride parades, gender transitioning, and pronoun preferences for kids as young as pre-kindergarten.

The Democrats have an ace in the hole in their relentless war on the Constitution – conservative America’s reverence for the concept of the rule of the law. Only their steadfast commitment to this traditional ideal explains why conservatives are allowing Democrats to flagrantly corrupt our judicial system to destroy their opponents and protect themselves. For all their huffing and puffing, conservatives have effectively taken a let the system play itself out attitude while Democrats nakedly politicize that system through their partisan indictments of former President Trump and their Potemkin Village probes of the Bidens. These are not statements of opinion. These are facts.

Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., while announcing his 10-point plan to end the plastics pollution crisis, said he would ban fracking. The process of fracking involves high pressure injections of liquid into underground rocks and layers to open fissures and extract oil or gas. The United Nations says each year, 19-23 million tons of plastic waste leaks into waterways, polluting rivers, seas, and lakes. [snip] The move would also drive the price of oil above $150 per barrel, while killing state budgets for energy producing states.

Remember James Clapper and John Brennan? It's easy to forget given how much has transpired since both men consistently led the news throughout the Trump administration. At one time, though, their involvement in Crossfire Hurricane, otherwise known as the Russia collusion investigation was really big news. For those less initiated, here's a quick refresher. Clapper was Barack Obama's DNI and has been credibly accused of lying to Congress. Meanwhile, Brennan is Obama's former CIA Director and has been credibly accused of doing the same. Both men lived on cable news after Trump's inauguration, making all kinds of wild, unsubstantiated claims related to nefarious Russian collusion supposedly committed by

The ongoing struggles of President Joe Biden have led to much speculation that he won’t be running for reelection next year after all and Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) shared his theory on who could be tabbed as his replacement. With polls piling up showing that voters have serious questions about the geriatric career politician’s age and health issues, the Democratic Party is desperately in need of a savior if it becomes necessary to pull the plug on Biden. And there are few who have the star power to salvage control of the White House. One of them is, of course, former first lady Michelle Obama and the Texas Republican thinks that she

The Biden administration is setting a booby trap in case a Republican wins the presidency in 2024. On Friday, the White House unveiled a proposed rule that would make it even harder than in the past for an incoming Republican president to wrestle control of the left-leaning federal bureaucracy and actually implement the conservative policies promised to voters. Of the 2.2 million federal civil workers, only 4,000 are presidential appointees. The rest stay in their jobs, from one administration to the next, protected by rules that make it nearly impossible to discipline or replace them.

United Nations, (Reuters) - Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced on Wednesday he will pump $500 million into the next phase of his energy transition campaign, aiming to shut down "every last" coal plant in the United States and slash gas-fired capacity in half by 2030. The $500 million infusion into his decade-long Beyond Carbon initiative aims to "finish the job on coal" by working with state and local organizations to force the closure of the roughly 150 coal plants that have not yet retired, slash current gas generation in half and block the construction of new gas-fired plants.
