German media failed to report refugee crisis honestly, study finds

This is a shocker.

In Germany, like in the USA, there is an official narrative handed down from the wonks running the government, which is then repeated as truth by those in the media who have partnered with the government and want to get invited to the right cocktail parties.

Of course many people realize that it’s all BS, many more than in the past, but the media and the state are still very powerful and as such can pummel those who offer up an alternative analysis.

Want to make BANK? Be a CEO of a taxpayer funded non-profit, $870,000/year for Urban League head

This is a shocker. People in the poverty business making huge piles of money? Who would have thought? I mean it’s not like the people at ACORN were crooks. Or Al Sharpton. Or Jesse Jackson. Or the people who run much of places like Chicago, Detroit, New York, and LA. No no, these people are for helping the poor. Selfless servants seeking justice. No way they are lining their own pockets and scamming the tax base.

Another Reason Men Don’t Work: Imaginary (Video Game) World More Enjoyable Than The Real World

And virtual reality hasn’t even gotten rolling yet. May God help us.

I am a weird case. I am 41 and enjoy video games on occasion and unlike most people my age I’ve actually spent my entire life with video games. My father was computer engineer who has been a fan of video games since the 1970s. Pong, we had Pong in my house. (I think.) The point is I am not against video games generally.

But the thing is they take too much time (for me) and the time spent playing them doesn’t even accomplish anything.

Politico ‘Fat Shames’ the President (But we learn he has a ‘single digit handicap’?!)

Trump could stand to lose a few pounds. But so can the vast majority of America.

But one thing I learned in this article is that the president has a single digit handicap! That is something Obama could only dream of achieving. Though the author makes the point that Trump likes the cart too much, that, and I say this as one who enjoys the game of golf, is impressive.

(From Politico)

But according to those who have golfed with the president,

As we said was likely, the Bushite NEOCONS and the Democrats are joining forces.

We predicted this would happen. As the conservative/libertarian coalition has expanded the neocons have looked for new friends in the Democratic Paty. (Really they are just reuniting.)

The Neoconservatives – actual conservatives MUST understand – are not conservatives at all. They are a small but powerful group of big government (both domestic and abroad) “Republicans” (they originally were Democrats) lodged in Washington who believe that for there to be “progress”

Republicans expand government yet again: U.S. House Backs $696 Billion Bill Boosting Fighter Jets, Troops, (Spends even more than Trump wanted)

Who cares that we have no enemy that can project power beyond their own backyards (or ponds)? Let’s spend spend spend. This is small government Republicans for you.

Constitutionally speaking we are supposed to have a DEFENSE not a global domination machine. But military spending is good for the members of Congress because it’s a way for Republicans to dole out taxpayer money without getting hammered. For some reason Republican leaning voters do not get that the military is big government too.

AntiWar.com: Was Trump Junior Framed?

Some people do not understand why we believe informed citizens should be very weary of the “official” narrative coming out of Washington with regard to Trump and Russia. The often brilliant Justin Raimondo, lays out an excellent case for skepticism below.

Are Trump and Putin buddies? We don’t know. Did they collude? We don’t know. Are there many people in the establishment who want anything BUT peace with Russia? Yes. Do the neocons want to expand NATO and generally support a German dominated European Union (that is hostile to Russia for historical reasons)?

Yellen opposes the people auditing the Fed, says Federal Reserve officials need safe spaces to make decisions

Audit the Fed and then end it.

Yellen and the Fed bankers think they’ve weathered the storm. That the shamans of the “Temple” will be able to shuffle around in the shadows of the financial Vatican hidden from the view of the people they impact for another generation. They believe that they are above the public, and that the Fed’s actions, which impact the world dramatically, don’t need the kind of scrutiny one might expect in a free society.

Brazil’s former leftist president, former darling of the “Pink Tide,” Lula da Silva gets 9 1/2 years for crony crimes

Lula and Obama cozying up during better times for both men.

 

We have asked this question before, but why is it that socialist leaders, supposed men and women of the proletariat, seem nearly ALWAYS to want to be rich?

The only exception I can think of off hand was Uruguay’s former “pauper” president who seemed not to pine for such things. Other than that, pretty much across the board,

WSJ: California’s Rise and Fall, From One Gov. Brown to Another (Cali IS NOT headed in the right direction)

 

It’s not the 3rd world yet.

California, what can I say? I love your redwoods, and Big Sur, Monterey, your tax revolt in the 1970s, even weird old San Francisco. (I really do.) But man, you guys have just gone off the deep end.

So are you just going to tax yourselves into oblivion? Is that the idea? Are you going to chase every small business out of the place? (I mean if I was a small startup I’d sellout to Facebook or Apple too,

Sharp Partisan Divisions in Views of National Institutions – Media, Colleges, etc.

I don’t care what your political disposition is, if you can’t see the absolute propaganda – not even bias – but flat out propaganda, coming from many of the “old” news outlets then you’ve got a problem.

Interestingly I have seen personally that at least a portion of my “lefty” friends/colleagues have just started to see how off the charts CNN, MSNBC, and some of the other news outlets have been. That isn’t to say that their political dispositions have changed for the most part.
