WaPo can’t help themselves, even for one day

Robert Trump, the brother of the president, died and WaPo couldn’t help but make a tasteless politically loaded title for his obituary. Not even for one day.

Compare that to the WaPo obituary written about a terrorist leader:

Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State dies age 48

Zero journalistic integrity. Zero. The Babylon Bee parody about the American mainstream media is so on point.

Can the NYT or WaPo top this for nauseating adoration of a failed leader?

It is hard to believe that anything could top the gut-wrenching nausea of this opinion piece in The Age. NYT or WaPo might blush.

Dan Andrews, for our foreign readers, is the deeply left-leaning Premier of Victoria who is facing criticism over deploying poorly trained private security guards who slept with guests staying in hotels during lockdown and contracted coronavirus. The Age is a left-leaning mainstream newspaper in Australia.

Warning: Keep a bucket by your side when you read it.

Alyssa Milano is a gift that keeps giving

Actress Alyssa Milano can’t stop outdoing herself in the hypocrisy stakes.

This time she took to demanding the Washington Redskins ditch the name because of offence it causes Native communities.

Never mind that Milano lent her name to “Touch by Alyssa Milano” which includes photos of her wearing Washington Redskins shirts.

If only she knew that a in May 2016, the heavily left-leaning WaPo released a poll targeted at self-identified Native Americans which produced the same results as the Annenberg poll of 2004. That is over 90% of the respondents were “not bothered” by the Redskins name.

For more links to Milano’s hypocrisy, please see the following link.

Happy Friday.

WaPo admits bounty on US soldiers evidence sketchy and needed confirmation but ran with it anyway

Opinion | This is how democracy dies — in full view of a public ...

The mainstream media has been foaming at the mouth hoping that Trump knew about intelligence that said that Russians were paying bounties to insurgents in Afghanistan for killing US and coalition troops. Social media ran with a #TRE45ON hashtag. They so wanted it to be true. Anything to prevent his reelection. Smear, slime, lie.

It turns out that WaPo has been forced to admit that the information was deemed sketchy and in need of additional confirmation. But hey, let’s run with it anyway!

The NY Times was equally complicit. It was running stories of slain soldiers in Afghanistan in an attempt to smear the president. These journalists have absolutely no morals or ethics. Use dead soldiers to push uncorroborated evidence to feed a narrative.

Shameless. WaPo’s “Democracy dies in darkness” and The NY Times “All the news that fit to print” mottos are perhaps the most inaccurate descriptors imaginable.

As we like to say, journalistic integrity will only return when the mainstream media loves America more than they hate Trump.

Another WaPo fact check blows up in its face

You have to hand it to the left. The Washington Post decided to challenge the claim made by President Trump that the cities where all of the violent crime was happening were Democrat-controlled.

True to form the left-leaning newspaper wrote, “It’s not clear how Trump is defining “most dangerous” in this context. So let’s look at two related sets of data compiled by the FBI: most violent crime and most violent crime per capita…The most recent data to that effect is from the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report covering the first half of 2019. The cities with the most violent crimes are many of the most populous cities in the country, as you might expect. Those with the highest rates of violent crime are from a range of different states.”

The stats came out as in the chart. In overall terms, 17 of the top 20 cities with violent crime were Democrat-controlled, 2 were independent and 1 Republican.

In terms of per 10,000 inhabitants, 19 out of 20 were Democrat-controlled with one independent run.

Technically a lie, but the correlation is striking.

WaPo has a coming to God moment

One could be easily forgiven for thinking this was the Babylon Bee. Nope. It’s WaPo.

WaPo wrote,

The country faces an election of choices as clear as any we have had in modern times, with clear consequences as well.

Vote for President Trump and you are voting for the Constitution, military strength and robust economic growth.

Vote for former vice president Joe Biden and you are voting for bureaucrats, appeasement abroad, and economic entropy….

…Trump is chaos theory contained in a man, an explosive combination of complete candor as to what he thinks and feels, a willingness to brawl, an almost animal energy for the fray.

Biden is clearly not that. He is mostly invisible these days, but he hasn’t just lost a step. He’s lost a lap. His White House would be marked by echo-chamber enthusiasts and the control of the appointees he brings along with him, a haphazard and dangerous step for the republic…

Nothing has worked to slow Trump down, so now it must be racial politics, the scourge of the nation put not to the service of justice for the poor, who Trump had served quite well with good jobs until the Chinese Communist Party lied about a deadly virus unleashed on the world and upended the blue-collar boom. That boom is returning. It would once again lift all communities.

For WaPo to be publishing this type of article shows how exposure to sunlight can cure Trump Derangement Syndrome.

As we keep reminding our readers. The Democrats are simply not making a strong case as a credible alternative to Trump, especially the behaviour of Democrat state governors and mayors during COVID19 and their empty virtue signalling, weakness and radical responses to the ‘protest anything under the banner of BLM‘ movements.

Even we Aussies can tell that the majority of Americans are patriots when push comes to shove.

Never forget that “lived experience” is a powerful force. We don’t think Trump’s first 3.5 years will be forgotten at the polling booth. Outside of all his bluster, vulgarity and unorthodox style, he’s made a lot of headway.

We have often said that journalistic integrity will only return when the mainstream media loves America more than it hates Trump. How long till the rest of WaPo channels Hugh Hewitt?

Prepare to be mesmerized with Jedi mind tricks

This is a very interesting BBC HardTalk interview with China’s Ambassador to the UK, Liu Xiaoming. He not only insists that coronavirus didn’t come from China but suggests that it was merely discovered in Wuhan. In his view, there has been no cover-up and China is as big a victim of the pandemic as any.

We have to hand it to Ambassador Liu for being so polished in his responses. No flinching. No discomfort. Perfect poker face. Exceptional media training. Imagine how many more senior Chinese officials are out there pouring honey into the ears of global politicians.
