Twitter Silences Rose McGowan; Lets Trump Trample Over Truth

The faceless corporate behemoth Twitter suddenly shut down the account of actor Rose McGowan.

McGowan has been very Twitter-vocal recently in the whole Harvey Weinstein abuse case.

It is clear that the powerful people involved in silencing the victims of Weinstein and others are still wielding their brickbats. Weinstein – good friends with Hilary Clinton and whose company Malia Obama spent an internship at last year – is on record threatening his victims with retaliation. In one case he was quoted as screaming “I’m the meanest mutherf*cking enemy you will ever have in this world.”

************************

Yes, Fox News and those on the Right are painting this as “the sexist liberals are getting theirs.”

But last night listening to Fox’s “The Five” pontificating and condemning “liberals” for sexual abuse – with Jesse Watters(!) as moderator – was like being in Hell and listening to the Devil tsk tsk his minions for their sinful transgressions.

*************************

As for the lawless, faceless, rudderless, profitless Twitter corp., their actions – or lack of action – defy all the world’s logic.

Russian propaganda lies meant to undermine the integrity of the United States and paid for by the Russian intelligence services?

That’s A-Ok with Twitter!

Rose McGowan uncovering the Truth behind Hollywood’s abuse?

“Shut the woman down!” says Twitter.

*****************************

Meanwhile, Twitter let’s Donald Trump spew outright lies across the world.

And does nothing to shut him down.

Who has the power in this world? It should be clear to everyone by now: Those In Power.

And when those in power shut down the voices of those who speak Truth To Power, oh, woe betide us.

If Americans Kneel, Will Mike Pence Walk Out Of Vice-Presidency?

Mike Pence, our Most Petty Vice-President, claimed that he walked out of an NFL game Sunday between the Colts and 49ers because some dozen players took a knee during the national anthem.

Which leads us to ask: If the man second-in-line to lead the United States of America is so easily swayed by such petty matters, then if a few hundred Americans took a knee during the national anthem could the Man-Standing-On-Principals-Of Sand Mike Pence be so outraged that he would resign from the vice-presidency?

It’s well worth a try.

***************************

The Reality:

Pence had this planned all along. His rapidly dispensed press release explaining his “outrage” and departure was written well before Sunday’s game.

He and Trump hatched this rotten egg tomfoolery to keep this “kneeling” issue on the front pages to whip up their gap-toothed, backwoods-dwelling ignorant racist base and guarantee they’d keep foaming at the mouth.

(As if they weren’t already foaming at the mouth from the rabies that inherently drove them to vote for Donald Trump.)

Rush Limbaugh Appears With Sean On Fox’s “Hannity” For Friendly, Mutually Assured Satisfaction

Friday Night on “Hannity” host Sean Hannity invited uber-opioid lover Rush Limbaugh on set for an intense, hardcore Right Wing man love session where, if viewers caught a particular glimpse, it was possible to see that there was more going on than just some exchanges of Big Brain Earbleeding Ideas.

Limbaugh, as everyone with a memory longer than Hillary Clinton’s nose knows, is infamous for his long, secret lifestyle gobbling mass quantities of illegally obtained opioids that helped form his multifaceted, convulsing views that turn dense Americans into rabid racist hate-baiters.

When caught, Limbaugh screamed “The Devil made me do it!” Irregardless of his claim, the police publicly cleared Hillary Clinton of any responsibility. (Although James Comey reserved the right to revisit the issue at a later date.)

Friday’s exchange between Limbaugh and Hannity was so intense, such a lovingly mutual massaging that by the time the segment was over and the camera went into a soft-focus dissolve it was possible to see both men reclining, in a sweat, and lighting each other’s cigarettes as a cloud of smoke wafted over the steaming set.

It’s always been true that those Republicans know how to have more fun than those hissy-fit liberals…

Trump Speech: “Let Loose The Dogs Of War!”

In a disjointed, hyperbolic telepromptered speech tonight Donald Trump essentially called out the dogs of war – that is, US military might – to wage war across the globe in some nebulous, far-reaching plan to “win, win, win” in the effort to…well, make sure the US will “defeat our enemies.”

How’s that for scaling back the government?

Oh, and he’s going to make Afghanistan pay for the war. Just like he was going to make Mexico pay for that wall – then decided he wasn’t.

And then he threatened Pakistan, a nuclear weaponized nation, and one of our allies.

And then he threatened India, another nuclear weaponized nation, and one of our allies. And used one of his favorite threats against India, economic sanctions.

And as for specific military plans?

That’s where it got scary. Trump declared that he was letting the generals call the game on how to run the war with no oversight from the US government.

Even Eisenhower knew better than that.

*************************************

Trump forever repeated the terms “patriotism” and “winning” and made his speech one of the most navel-gazing foreign policy bits ever witnessed.

As if the people living outside the US have nothing to do with the world whatsoever.

Trump is the living embodiment of a child-president.

Woe to the world.

NYT’s Exec Dean Baquet Dumps Copy Editor’s Desk

If you’re frustrasted – er, frustrated – from reading all the errors in your New York Times stories you’re not alone.

Now the copy editors at the New York Times have been fired. All for the sake of cost cutting and their sudden fascination with “New Media.”

Executive Editor Dean Baquet – the Torquemada of newspaper publishing – thinks that cohesive news stories can be produced without the time-honored position of the copy editor.

Good luck with that, Deano.

It was just last week that Sarah Palin brought legal action against The Times for their sloppy editorial – no doubt written by a twenty-something – that wrongly described Palin’s despicable gunsight campaign ads as directly targeting Rep. Gabby Giffords rather than her district. (The Times had to correct the editorial.)

The New York Times under Dean Baquet has been in a steady slide toward sloppy muck and his wholesale firings of dedicated, vitally important staff members underscores Baquet’s schoolboy joy of dismantling what was once the greatest newspaper in these United States.

Note: And while Baquet makes these supposedly cost-savings moves, the same day’s NYT’s paper reviews a $377,000 Ferrari station wagon made for the average family to drop off the kids to school…

How’s THAT for the good liberal disconnect? Fire the workers then feed the readers their Ferrari fantasies.

Oh, shut up and go back to your little smartphone screens…

Worried Over Fake News? Google News Just Made It Worse

Today, 28th June 2017, the most powerful media company in the world, Google, just blew up their news feed.

They instituted a new format that makes mincemeat of any sensible way to digest the world’s latest news events.

From today onward, going to Google’s News webpage will lead readers into an oubliette of oblivion.

Want to be directed to “Highly Cited” stories from The Washington Examiner? That’s where Google will take you. No matter that The Examiner is a nether region right-wing paper-hanger.

Google wants to direct you over to The Washington Times to a “Highly Cited” story on Sarah Palin. Oh, you mean THAT Washington Times that runs in the gutter to promote the most despicable conspiracy theories Vlad Putin is pushing over our borders.

How about The Financial Times? The Japan Times? Associated Press? Mother Jones?

********************

A Fake News World. Have we have entered that realm?

Google, owned by Alphabet, the world’s second largest internet multi-national conglomerate, has no interest in the truth. It only has interest in profits.

Fox News is still the most viewed news channel in America.

America, without any leaders on the national level, is rapidly sliding toward Third World status.

 

And media corporations like Google/Alphabet are more than happy to provide the water slide.

The President Unhinged: Part II

Today US President Donald J. Trump attempted to grab attention from the chaos surrounding his administration by telling the news media he would soon make an announcement about so-called “tapes” from the Oval Office.

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/president-donald-trump-deflects-questions-tapes-james-comey/story?id=47935492

Supposedly such tapes would vindicate the president in face of James Comey’s testimony yesterday.

Seconds later, Trump told the same reporters that they would be “very disappointed” in his forthcoming announcement.

Meaning that they do not exist?

The President of the United States is no longer making sense.

The President of these United States has lost control of reality.

The President of these United States of America has become unhinged.
