The Fascistic New York Times of Fake News Fame to Expand Press Crimes Against America

WHY NORMAL AMERICANS HATE THE “ELITES”

by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

These are three news stories that came to my attention over the last 24 hours. I think they tell us a lot about the current, degraded state of public life in America.

First, the Boston Globe organizes a media protest against the Trump administration’s “assault on the press.”

The Boston Globe has been contacting newspaper editorial boards and proposing a “coordinated response” to President Trump’s escalating “enemy of the people” rhetoric.

“We propose to publish an editorial on August 16 on the dangers of the administration’s assault on the press and ask others to commit to publishing their own editorials on the same date,” The Globe said in its pitch to fellow papers.
***
As of Saturday, “we have more than 100 publications signed up, and I expect that number to grow in the coming days,” Marjorie Pritchard, the Globe’s deputy editorial page editor, told CNN.

The American Society of News Editors, the New England Newspaper and Press Association and other groups have helped her spread the word.

“The response has been overwhelming,” Pritchard said. “We have some big newspapers, but the majority are from smaller markets, all enthusiastic about standing up to Trump’s assault on journalism.”

Personally, I am more unhappy about the press’s assault on President Trump than about President Trump’s assault on the press. To listen to our heroic journalists, you might think that Trump is sending secret policemen to cart them off to prison.

No such thing, of course. Rather, Trump is saying things about left-wing press outlets that are nowhere near as nasty as what they have been saying about him since before his inauguration. Democratic Party journalists declared war on the president, and they now pretend that his fighting back is somehow an infringement of their rights. Boo freaking hoo.

Next, on a similar theme, we hear from Dani Rodrik, a professor at Harvard’s Kennedy School. Rodrik is concerned lest educational institutions “normalize” historically low unemployment, steady wage increases and a pro-America foreign policy:

The Trump administration confronts universities with a serious dilemma. On one hand, universities must be open to diverse viewpoints, including those that conflict with mainstream opinion or may seem threatening to specific groups. …

On the other hand, there is the danger of normalizing and legitimizing what can only be described as an odious presidency.

It requires a peculiar sense of self-worth to think that your approval is needed to legitimize a president who was elected by the American people. Left-wing academics may think that ordinary Americans don’t notice their arrogance, but they are mistaken.

How, exactly, does Rodrik propose to avoid “normalizing” and “legitimizing” a Republican president? Academic institutions should have nothing to do with anyone who serves in the administration, just as restaurants shouldn’t serve them:

Those who serve with him are necessarily tainted by the experience. Trump’s close associates and political appointees are his enablers….

The stain extends beyond political operatives and covers economic policymakers as well. Trump’s cabinet members and high-level appointees share collective responsibility for propping up a shameful presidency. They deserve opprobrium not merely because they hold cranky views on, say, the trade deficit or economic relations with China, but also, and more importantly, because their continued service makes them fully complicit in Trump’s behavior.

Then again, they have “enabled” millions of Americans to go back to work at higher wages. And they have helped Trump to stand up to countries like China, which have fleeced U.S. companies of intellectual property for years with no effective response from prior administrations. But how, exactly, are educational institutions to avoid “normalizing” or “legitimizing” success?

Trump’s immediate circle and senior appointees…should not be accorded the degree of respect or deference that their seniority and government positions would normally merit. We do not, after all, have a normal administration that can be served honorably.

This means no honorific titles (fellow, senior fellow), no named lectures, no keynote speeches headlining conferences or events. While individual faculty members and student groups should be free to invite Trump appointees to speak on campus, as a rule such invitations should not be issued by senior university officers. And lectures and presentations should always provide an opportunity for vigorous questioning and debate.

No honorific titles? No named lectures? No keynote speeches? Invitations to speak delivered by underlings? The horror! My friends will attest that I am not normally a profane person, but I join a large majority of Americans in saying, f*** you, a**hole.

Finally we come to–who else?–the New York Times. The Times was one of several media outlets that, in their eagerness to find ammunition that Senate Democrats might use to torpedo Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination, submitted public records requests to get dirt on his wife, because she happens to work for a public entity as the town manager of Chevy Chase, Maryland.

I criticized this tactic in New York Times Targets Kavanaugh’s Wife. Others did as well. I published this Times email with a list of “key words” for which the paper wanted the City of Chevy Chase to search Mrs. Kavanaugh’s emails:

Now the Times has seen fit to respond to me and its other critics while reporting on the failure of its investigation of Mrs. Kavanaugh:

In the case of Mr. Kavanaugh, The Times requested records under Maryland’s public records law from Chevy Chase Section 5, where the nominee’s wife, Ashley, serves as town manager.

We sought email records involving Judge Kavanaugh and communications that referenced hot-button topics. We believed that the records, if they existed, could provide a unique and personalized view into the nominee.

Fortunately, the Times didn’t have standing to get a subpoena covering the Kavanaughs’ bedroom, or they surely would have used it to acquire “a unique and personalized view into the nominee.” Just like they did when Sonia Sotamayor and Elena Kagan were nominated to the Court. You remember those Times investigations, don’t you?

Sadly, the Times admits that this phase of its anti-Kavanaugh effort came to naught:

Ultimately, our request yielded 85 pages of emails, none of which provided any substantive insights into Mr. Kavanaugh’s judicial philosophy. Instead, the records were largely what you would expect from a town manager’s email account — mundane dispatches about town business, from snow removals to local newsletters.

Heh. No surprise there. But, as the Times concludes, “we had to try.” Sure: when there is a risk that a judge who will actually read the Constitution and federal laws and apply them objectively might be confirmed, the Times has to try. Anything goes.

You could assemble stories like these pretty much any day of the week. But when I read them together, I thought they were a stark example of how malignant America’s self-appointed “elites” are, even though, as we never tire of pointing out, they are anything but elite. In fact, they are below average. Which is why most Americans rightly don’t think much of them.

Don’t Forget CBC’s American Fascists Explaining Trump’s Capturing Ohio that November 8, 2016!

Remember the Leftist Shock the Day After America Was Saved by Donald J. Trump Becoming President?

CNN ticked the Knavs Become U.S. Citizens!

Melania’s Parents Become U.S. Citizens, The Left Melts Down

First Lady Melania Trump’s parents became U.S. citizens Thursday. In Trump’s America, this feel-good story turned the ugly left and their cohorts in the press into indignant critics. Not surprisingly, sources say Melania sponsored her parents’ green card application. 

Sources familiar with the matter tell ABC News first lady Melania Trump sponsored both her parents’ green card application, a move which eventually led to their gaining U.S. citizenship on Thursday through a process that the president has derisively called “chain migration”.

The first lady’s parents, Viktor and Amalija Knavs, were sworn in as U.S. citizens at a federal immigration court in New York City.

“Citizenship was just awarded,” the Slovenian couple’s immigration lawyer Michael Wildes said after accompanying them to the courthouse.

While the ABC News story admits it is impossible to tell if the Knavses were sponsored by the First Lady or became citizens through what is known as chain migration, judgments have been leveled.  Most importantly, everything was done legally.

“They have travailed a wonderful journey like most have – millions have – in getting citizenship and waiting the requisite period of time,” Wildes said. “The application, the process, the interview was no different than anybody else’s other than security arrangements to facilitate today.”

In February, the Knavses were confirmed as permanent residents of the United States after emigrating from Slovenia by Wildes.

That’s just not good enough for the disbelieving #NeverTrump brigade. They prefer to describe the Knavses’ citizenship path as chain migration – becoming American citizens because their daughter is an American citizen – because President Trump has stated a desire to end chain migration. How else would the ugly crowd get pleasure in such an easy excuse to call President Trump a hypocrite? Not all legal ways to becoming a U.S. citizen after holding a legal green card are in the chain migration category. It’s best to just stick with the facts.

 The US allows a number of ways for US citizens and legal permanent residents to sponsor family members to come to the US permanently, including categories for parents, adult siblings and adult children, married and unmarried.

The tsk-tsking tweets made the rounds on social media Thursday. Suddenly everyone on Twitter is an immigration law expert and eager to pass judgments without hearing all the facts, as the lawyer will not confirm either way. His clients ask for privacy, as private citizens.

Melania’s spokeswoman won’t comment and her reason is the First Lady’s parents aren’t a part of the Trump administration.

The White House declined to comment on the Knavses’ newly acquired citizenship status, saying they were “not part of the administration and deserve privacy.”

After living between Trump Tower and Mar-a-Lago for several years, Viktor and Amalija Knavs reportedly moved to the Washington suburbs following Trump’s inauguration,and are frequently spotted traveling with the first lady and the Trumps’ son, Barron Trump.

They sound like regular grandparents to me, though on a sliding scale. They live near their daughter’s family and help out with their grandchild.

And, the critics continue to conflate President Trump’s intention to reduce illegal immigration with an attempt to eliminate immigration. The descriptive word that is left out is the most important – ‘illegal’. (Emphasis mine)

This is the most anti-immigration administration probably in the history of the country, except when it comes to this family, and the hypocrisy is just stunning,” said David Leopold, an immigration lawyer in Cleveland. “He and his administration are on a crusade to rid the country of immigrants, particularly immigrants of color. What can you say when the first lady and her family have such an easy time?”

What is stunning to me, really, is this level of deception from the legal community and the journalists who can’t wait to quote them. That’s the real hypocrisy. They know better but they just don’t care because it is how they frame the narrative.

Reality of today’s rise of Fascism in our once God-fearing America

As I understand “it”, Google dictates in Google world whether this article or any article…even if using the Prager name or otherwise….is worthy of being read ala-Google  by any  public according to  today’s LEFTIST SOCIALIST DICTATES OR HABITS OF THOSE WHO RUN and/or Decide for GOOGLE and others google-like, all apparently neo-fascists of small print, if truth could be told….but fascists none the less.

I was born in 1934…during the Depression….but  before the bombing of Pearl Harbor.   Families had mothers AND fathers in those days.  Fathers worked 48 hours a week, but were “free” with family on Sundays.   “Free with family” meant Sunday morning was for Church attendance; the rest of the day was free “with family”…..including uncles and aunts, grandparents, and in my Mother’s family case, my Great Grandmother Kraft who spoke only German, but understood English.  She possessed all of her German mind and family status faculties until she died at age 98 in 1947.

Most stores, shops, business were closed on Sundays in the Twin Cities where I lived.

And then there was THE WAR when our new 1941 Plymouth sedan became stored in our family garage until autumn, 1945.  Although there were  moments of gangster John Dillinger popping in and out of St. Paul during the 1930s,   crime seemed to have disappeared from concern in  the city until the mid 1960s when  the sexual, black,  druggie and peacenik revolution changed our American family seemingly forever.

National Socialism began to stir and explode at university.   Seeking God and Truth had begun to  disappear from America,   There were ” no longer any differences to be established between the human male and human female.  Socialist equality Soviet style became the religion of our day…..Free, free at last, to be equally controlled by the rising smoke and odor of authoritarian leftist government…one sex, one class, one Google, one Facebook, one fascist world without the JudeoChristian God.

Free, free, and “safe” at  last to live alone, think alone, know nothing alone, and talk alone.

Whatever happened to Truth?   Are humans all created Lefties, Feminists uneducated by the  dictates,  realities of Americana today…its fake news,  its CNN’s, PBS’s, MSNBC’s and their such, the New York Times, Los Angeles Times and Washington Post, and their  fake “Liberal Arts”  universities and school teachings?  Is  their small elite creating a dictatorship over the masses; the poor and ignorant who have not yet intellectually risen to the stature of Lying Adam Schiff, fascist Bernie Sanders or  Crooked Hillary?

Let’s play with a bit of today’s Leftism….its Love for One Party Fascism and Feminism!

They in the USA preach the human female and male are the same  beings, but its  feminists of all colors, shapes, sexes, and sizes have been made unequal due to the meanness, even the evil of the sly human male…..those foul Republicans.

So be it!  If one lives in a free country, one can still learn stupid and dangerous things, for sure!    I was lucky.  I was born an American male, genetically driven to be curious, to become  learned, “amass”  knowledge to pierce the unknown  from 1939 to about three years ago when I seemed to begin  relying more on memory  than amassing knowledge.

I,  Churched and schooled, discovered  early that the human male animal is born a killer.  Being a thinking animal I was taught to be a child of God…of goodness….decency….to do unto others as I would have them do unto me…..and so became  GodFearing  rising and living “above the animal state”  dictatorships such as NATIONAL SOCIALIST GERMANY, AND SOVIET SOCIALIST USSR AND MAO COMMUNIST-SOCIALIST CHINA, or believing in today’s American ADAM SCHIFF SOCIALIST-DEMOCRAT POLITICAL PARTY!

I learned from existing, teaching, and learning, that the human female animal is born DITSY!   She is driven primarily by ‘feelings’…..”not curiosity” to be secure rather than exploring or problem solving!

Whether in China, Russia, Central Africa, or Nordic Europe or America…..the “he” is ‘heavenly’,  ‘genetically’ gifted, driven,  to be curious, to wonder “why” and respond genetically!  He is  to find his space and role in life.  He begins  still as crawling  child,  his drive to snoop, to  explore, to  “feel” the world around him !

The she of the living  species and culture, is, of course, equal in value to  the human male, for she produces and early protects the child itself.    However, the he, as an animal,  is born  in nearly every culture  to protect ‘her and child’.   He is programmed to problem solve, to  hunt, to build, to explore, to defend, to  die to save home, country or village.

HE, NOT SHE, IS GENETICALLY DRIVEN TO BE  CURIOUS IN ORDER TO PROBLEM SOLVE, TO BUILD, AND TO PROTECT HER,  FAMILY, COUNTRY!

Freedom is NOT A NATURAL  FEMALE DRIVE….SECURITY IS.    Seeking Truth is also not a natural female drive.  FEELINGS ARE  by instinct!

Which American communications industry would publish or report such a Truth generalized as the above to today’s American public?

Do know and remember that fascistic Google  has zapped 80 or so of those terrific five minute  Prager University freedom articles from its ‘files’ for the American and other public to view!  Why were they made to disappear?    ANSWER….

They didn’t fit its leftist god management!?  ghr

CJack Reviews Zuckerberg’s FACEBOOK Police State Actions against American Conservatives!

—Facebook and the American Left vs. Free Speech in America—

Is it time to break up Facebook before it becomes the surreptitious arm of the DNC’s single-party police state? Is it time to revisit the *Sherman Antitrust Act before “Facebook” become the government’s big gorilla in the chat room? I say yes. In Mark Zuckerberg, the Founder and Chairman of Facebook, the enemies of the American Constitutional Republic have found a ‘deep pockets’ useful fool to monitor and suppress our right to free speech without reservations; a right of free citizens which is under a tsunami of incendiary rhetoric and charlatanry facilitated through social-media technology; a tool much more effective than Stalin’s Pravda and Tass.

But today in America the chat room democratic-socialists are contesting the ‘open borders’ globalists under new totalitarian banners sprung from the bowels of Marx’s communism; yet our overfed and over-entertained nation could care less about the conspiracy to cripple its duly elected President taking place under the bogus investigation by and unconstitutional “special counsel” and his cohorts…while the arch-enemies of free speech in Moscow and Beijing are planning to celebrate the demise of the land of the free and the home of the brave.

The anti-Trump ignoramuses in our vitriolic liberal media prefer to foment hate against our duly elected 45th President than to accept the law as stated in Section 4 of the US Constitution: “The President, Vice President, and all civil (nonmilitary) officers of the United States may be impeached and removed from office if convicted of treason, bribery (payment for favors, breaking the trust of office) a crime, or any other high crimes or misdemeanors (crimes considered less serious than felonies).” Therefore, since Mueller’s investigation has not found–after more than 18 months and the mounting millions of taxpayer dollars— evidence of any egregious misconduct against the President for Congress to impeach him. For the sake of the country, this malodorous unconstitutional investigation, conducted by the mal-intended unconstitutional ‘special counsel’ Robert Mueller should be ended immediately. The duly elected 45th President of the United States must be permitted to govern the nation without further petulant and malicious distractions. I reiterate, thus far Mueller has not brought forth any evidence to indict the President for the House to accuse the President and for the Senate to conduct a trial of the President. By the way, Mueller has no power or authority to subpoena the President of the United States. The President would be ill advised by his lawyers to meet with the malicious, unconstitutional ‘special counsel’ Robert “Muleface” Mueller whose attempt is to entrap him.

Let us inform the undercutting liberal media that the duties of the President include receiving ambassadors and other public ministers (representatives) from foreign countries; and to see that the laws of the United States are carried out faithfully. To invite the President of Russia, the Honorable Vladimir Putin, to a White House visit is pragmatic and wise diplomacy if we are to peacefully coexist with Russia. President Trump’s meeting with President Putin in Helsinki was not to publicly vent against Russia, it was simply the right time and opportunity to construct a new staircase for peace in our troubled world. However, for this to happen, we must crack down on the anarchists and hold the liberal media responsible for its divisive racist and political fabrications. We have had enough. Free speech must always be kept in check by our legal and moral boundaries. The idea that under free speech anything goes has been, historically, a losing societal proposition. The French Revolution offers a clear example of the incivility of a liberated citizenry without legal and moral boundaries. The ‘free’ French ended up exchanging a king for an emperor.

The liberal media has deliberately failed to inform the nation that the President, acting under his Constitutional authority, did not obstruct justice when he fired the corrupt, incompetent, leaker ex-FBI Director James Comey; the President’s subordinate. By the way, this was a firing recommended by the current Deputy USAG Rod Rosenstein who unconstitutionally appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel with a suspiciously broad scope and range to conduct an investigation of the President based on a fabricated “dossier” about a Trump-Russia collusion. The infamous “dossier” was a DNC/Clinton/Obama contingency plan in case their “sure-winner” Hillary Clinton lost the election. And it has all backfired.

So I say it is time, since there is no proof of collusion and/or obstruction of justice, for USAG Jeff Sessions to resign or to withdraw his recusal to fire Rod Rosenstein under the charge that he, Rosenstein, has improperly discharged his responsibilities as Deputy USAG. This should be immediately followed by a recommendation to end the unconstitutional ‘special counsel’ Mueller’s “Trump-Russia” investigation, for the good of the country. Yet, having failed to prove collusion, Mueller is now trying to ‘spin’ the fabricated “dossier” by implying that it was really a Trump-Putin conspiracy that wrecked the old mare’s dream of winning the electoral derby.

The President should have turned the tables on Mueller by directing the DOJ to examine the actions of Hillary Clinton during her tenure as Obama’s Secretary of State; the role of Robert Mueller (as director of the FBI) in the matter of the “Uranium One” transaction with the Russian corporation Rosatom; and concurrently investigate the actions of John Brennan during his tenure as CIA Director; and James Clapper, former Director of US National Intelligence. But the “deep state” made it difficult for the neophyte incoming President to quickly assemble his cabinet.

Make no mistake about the intent of Muleface Mueller and those behind this conspiracy to overthrow the duly elected President of the United States; their ultimate aim is to rewrite the US Constitution and the authority and power of the Executive Office. From all indications the transformation of America Obama promised to his blind jubilant supporters gathered at Chicago’s Grant Park on the night of his election to the White House in 2008, was truly a devilish proposition not only to rewrite the U.S. Constitution (because, as he said, it contained negative rights) but to also remodel the US Congress in the manner of yesteryear’s Soviet Union’s Politburo; or, perhaps into something closer to Red China’s current legislative model—(Note: the “Little Red Book” of the late Chairman Mao was discarded after China’s Senior Vice-Premier Deng Xiaoping visited Singapore for a discussion of free-market economics with Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew).

I therefore urge you to defend our values and ideals by firmly rejecting Barack Obama and his band of anarchists, the globalist George Soros’ open borders madness, and Facebook’s suppression of free speech.
At every opportunity I exhort you to help us energize our Conservative base to win this coming November to retain the majority in the House and Senate; and in 2020 to re-elect President Donald J. Trump to a 2nd Term in the White House. Consider this a patriotic call to arms, by way of the vote, to defend the American Constitution, its laws and legal processes. In God we trust.

————–To a Bitter Old’ Woman———-
The little old’ woman has gone mad, wild;
Her finger points, she regrets, recriminates;
Alone in her littered castle of empty bottles;
Drunk from the spirits to ease her pain;
She ventures in stupor through the woods;
To curse silent trees, autumn’s falling leaves;
Summer slides into fall; as fall shall to winter;
Cold days of snow an’ ice to sharpen her pain;
For on her way the old woman left many a lame;
Alas, a mad broken old mare at the derby ran;
But a horse from Queens, beat her at the track!

Dedicated to old Hilde Beast, loser…
