In echo of Bannon’s famous statement: Woodward to media – ‘Calm it down and listen more’

Too many in the media wish they were a character in House of Cards, have watched All the President’s Men on loop for weeks, and just want to take down the “patriarch” who blew up the Hillary dream.

The #oldmedia are mad that they lost.

How about we start looking closely into the Obama Iran deal. I’ll bet that could be interesting.

Drudge: Washington Post produces infomercial for Obama

It’s a pretty fair criticism I think. I’m betting that we won’t see this sort of thing from The Post (assuming it survives as it is in the next few years) when Trump leaves the White House. This really is pretty blatant stuff. Consider also that in most regards, and this is not just a personal opinion, it is pretty objectively true, Obama leaves the White House a failed president. Obamacare was the only real policy he could hang his hat on and even that has blown up.

Washington Post: Once the hope candidate, Obama in his final days faces a hopeless electorate

That this image was embraced by Obama fans for a while really weirded me out. It reeks of radical leftism, and an “El Jefe” style of politics. (Which Obama did try to employ.)

 

I’ve seen a few articles like this in the past couple of months. As the sun sets (mercifully) on the Obama administration, a largely failed administration, his supporters and former supporters are looking around and asking, “What went wrong?”

What’s interesting is that many of the people looking around bewildered now really did think that the TEA Party was some sort of reaction to a black president.

Washington Post: The middle class is poorer today than it was in 1989

It’s not that this information is new. We’ve written about this situation multiple times before and so have other sites. But that the very establishment Washington Post is letting this little ray of truth shine out to its generally liberal readers is what is important here.

Pretty hard to ague that Obama has been anything close to a successful president when these sorts of stats stare one in the face.

Washpo’s liberal columnist Milbank on DC traffic cameras: “there was no safety threat in either case.” But the cameras are there for money, not safety. It’s enough to make anybody a libertarian.”

Good to see this. I doubt Dana will be joining the book club at the Liberty Tavern across the river in Arlington anytime soon, but at least he said it.

Big government, no matter how much you may think you like it will eventually creep into some part of your life where you don’t want it. Then, it will be too late.

40 Maps Which Explain the World

This is an extremely well done article from The Washington Post. Maps can put things into perspective. They help us make sense of the world around us. Knowing where The Crimea is for example is probably a good thing these days as politicians rattle sabers and jockey for position. If things were to get hot it is our sons and daughters after all who would find themselves in harm’s way. Might be nice to know where they are going (or aren’t).

AP: Report, “Obama brings chilling effect on journalism.”

This president and his administration have sought to chill dissent. Like the political correctness fanatics which now run our universities (a movement from which Obama it should be noted emerged) who chill speech at every turn in the name of “tolerance and diversity” this president uses similar newspeak when he calls for transparency and “freedom.”

Pharmaceutical firms paid thousands to attend meetings of panel that advises the FDA on pain killers

Again, marijuana or cannabis, for many an effective, non-opiate (non-physically addictive), nearly free treatment for pain is widely illegal in this country. One can however get a prescription for Oxycodone, aka hillbilly heroin, which is viciously addictive and expensive no problem.  Such opiates are profitable so long as the effective, largely non-addicting, non-stupefying, nearly free option is kept out of the hands of those who want to obey the law.
