NYT’s Accepts $ To Promote “Fearless Girl” Controversy

How fiercely crass is The New York Times? We’ll tell you.

On April 12th 2017 they promoted a “controversial” story about the “Fearless Girl” statue on Wall Street and how it turned the sculptor of the Wall Street bull rather peevish.

It turned out to generate massive coverage and feedback from people all over the world.

Great, you might say?

Not so great, we say.

Why?

Because the “Fearless Girl” statue was commissioned by State Street Capitol Advisors – Who The New York Times took Big $ from for a Big Ad in their same day’s Business Section which just so happened to blare – get this – “Sometimes Shit Happens.”

Well, actually, the ad said – “Sometimes —– Happens.”

But why be coy when you’re in bed with The New York Times and promoting yourself by ludicrously tying your corporate profits onto the back of the Women’s Rights Movement?

Talk about shame.

Shame on The New York Times.

Shame on State Street Capitol Advisors.

Shame on all those who got suckered into this false “discussion” of “Fearless Girl” when the real issue is about two corporations making a tempest in a teapot in order to generate corporate profits.

AARP Members Surprised Their Fees Going To Support Trump

The AARP organization – a legal non-profit – is surprising their members with their full-blown support of Donald Trump.

The fact that the AARP organization has swung around to being a Right-Wing political lobbying weapon whose top leadership is so gung-ho on Trump has raised the concerns of many members.

Meanwhile, the CEO of AARP has been featured prominently in national ads trying to sell multiple services – unwanted by most Americans – instead of doing the good work she’s supposed to be doing: Assisting those 50 and over who are simply scraping by.

When an AARP mass email went out to members touting how The Donald is their friend, lot’s of AARP members questioned whether AARP was their friend.

Donald Trump has just signed an executive order giving carte blanche to Wall Street traders to seek their own profits irregardless of their client’s best interests. This means Wall Street can gamble on their own with clients money – gambling with retirement savings – without any repercussions.

Just WHY would a president eliminate the only laws in place that protect individual investors? And WHY does AARP think this is a great idea?

Protecting citizens’ savings should be the primary concern of AARP – yet AARP supports Pres. Trump’s efforts to let Wall Street steal investors funds.

Just who does AARP support?

Putin Plays Trump Like A Puddin’head Fiddle

There is precedence here.

It was a mere 15 years ago that another Republican president gave his personal appraisal of Russian dictator Vlad Putin: George W. said he looked into Vlad’s eyes and saw his soul and saw that it was good. That Vlad The Impaler was, for the record: “trustworthy.”

“George, George, George.” Or so his father, H.W. was constantly heard to mutter.

Now we have The Great Imposter Trump glowingly declaring Putin is “very smart.”

Well, compared to GI Trump, we must agree. On the intelligence meter Putin wins hands down against ol’ cotton brains.

First, Putin is a leader who has built his empire on top of his state’s extensive intelligence bureaus. Heck, Putin was brought up as an intelligence agent in the old KGB. When it comes to subterfuge and the effective use of intelligence in the exercise of power Putin is unrivaled in modern history.

GI Trump? He is so scared of the US intelligence agencies that he’s refused to meet with them. He has gone on record repeatedly refuting the authenticity of the intelligence agencies.

Intelligence! Shmelligence!

Can you see Vlad Putin in Moscow licking his lips at what a sucker he’s going to be dealing with?

He’s like LeBron James knowing he’s going 1-on-1 against a pimply-faced middle-schooler.

Game over!

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

Vladimir Putin is a master.

He supplied a guided missile that shot down Malaysia Air Flight 17 in the Ukraine killing almost 300 civilians. And nothing happened.

He kills his personal and political enemies using hitmen. And nothing happens.

He controls the media in Russia, controls the economy, controls politics, when he wants to stay in power he changes the rules for term limits.

And now, when he wants to control an American president, he plays him like a puddin’head fiddle.

And the Great Imposter, Trump, trumpets out tweets that are music to a dictator’s ears.

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

No. There is no precedence.

An American head of state has never sold the soul of this Republic to a dictator. Especially one as corrupt and murderous and dangerous to the world order as Putin.

And every other leader of civilized countries in this world agree.

Except for this incoming Imposter Trump.

Oklahoma’s Mixon Knocks Out Girl, Breaks Her Face In 4 Places; American Men Agree: “It Was A Good Punch”

The 2-year old video of University of Oklahoma star running back Joe Mixon knocking out a female student has just been released. For the first time the world can see the event and judge for itself.

http://deadspin.com/joe-mixon-told-police-it-felt-like-a-dude-hit-me-1790324120

And for all those commenting on sports sites across the web the troubling conclusion is this: The girl deserved it.

Why? Because prior to getting violently punched out by a massive, muscular athlete, the blond girl pushed him, then slapped him on the neck.

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

By the thousands men (and some women) are throwing their weight behind the very flimsy logic that this big man was merely defending himself against this girl.

Tellingly, by the thousands these nitwits are buttressing their logic with the fact that women declare they want equality from men. Therefore, a push and a slap from a much smaller female should certainly be seen as a mortal threat and should be countermanded by a punch with the force to kill.

“They want equality? We’ll GIVE them equality! With our fists!” they all say.

Hmmm….think these people have issues?

Think these people can’t properly process intellectual concepts?

Think these people hate all that “women’s lib” stuff? Think these are all the people who hated Hillary Clinton because she was one of “those” women and really wanted to punch her out?

Think this nation is becoming more violent, more intolerant, more reactionary, less able to grasp fundamental values like, for example, Don’t beat your children or women?

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

It’s popular to talk about the crumbling infrastructure of America – meaning roads, bridges, etc.

There’s another infrastructure crumbling in America and the sound is deafening – It’s the sound of the crumbling infrastructure of American Society.

We’re wondering who’s going to stand up and become the leader to rebuild that.

Trump Calls Taiwan-Why Not! Why Should Any US President Let Communist China Dictate Who They Can Talk To?

Yes. Donald Trump talked with the democratically elected president of Taiwan.

Why shouldn’t he. Why the hell should the most powerful nation in the world let Communist China tell it who it can and cannot talk to? THAT is the question.

The national media – including The New York Times – is equating Trump’s conversation with Taiwan’s president as if it were an act of war with China. It’s not.

It’s called Freedom of Speech.

Why can’t the US president speak with Taiwan’s president? Oh. It’s that Jimmy Carter agreement way back when that essentially…well, what DID we gain from letting Communist China become a massive pain in the arse to the world as a whole? What DID we gain by recognizing Communist China and throwing small, independent, democratic Taiwan under the bus?

Well, we threw away our principles, for one thing.

Why would we abandon Taiwan, a country that has come to more closely resemble the democratic, free-thinking values of the United States? Why would we instead allow Communist China free access to all our markets so that it could take unfair trade advantage and fundamentally alter the American economy so that it will NEVER be the same? So that China’s unfair trade advantage has allowed it not only to steal jobs from Americans but to amass trillions of dollars that it has used and is currently using to purchase American corporations and manufacturing sites and tracts of real estate so that America’s resources have essentially been transferred wholesale across the Pacific to Chinese control?

Why does everyone screaming in the press seem to think that Communist China can dictate who the American president can talk to on the telephone? 

Oh. It’s all the same people who were so blindered for years with outdated values that they thought putting Hillary Clinton up for president was going to be a great move forward for this country.

Uh, huh.

Once you let a bully start dictating what you can do, that bully controls you.

It’s time to stop the mindset that Communist China sets policy for the world. It’s time that the United States starts setting an example by showing leadership.

[This is in no way an endorsement for Donald Trump. It is an endorsement for a change in foreign policy.]

Does NYT’s Finally Recognize Taiwan As Independent Nation From Communist China?

For years The New York Times has kneeled down before the powers of Communist Mainland China and refused to acknowledge in print that the free island nation Taiwan, the Republic of China, is a sovereign nation independent from the corrupt, criminal communist mainland China.

That, apparently, has changed.

In an opinion piece published in The Times on Saturday, 26 November 2016, the editorial writers clearly stated:

“Taiwan should become another nation to recognize that love is love, regardless of sexual orientation.”

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

The definition of nation clearly states that it is “independent” and a “sovereign state.”

Never before has The New York Times ever admitted that Taiwan was anything other than a renegade province of the communist mainland China. This is the Party line that Mainland China has forced upon news corporations and businesses and even the United Nations in its attempts to isolate the democratic nation of Taiwan.

Communist China has used its police powers and its power over who is allowed to do business in the country to keep countries and corporations bowing down to them for decades and most countries and corporations have willingly taken the boot of the communists and shined it clean for the sake of their own profits.

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

We congratulate The New York Times for their brave, courageous stance, knowing they alone are standing against a tidal wave of forced economic censorship and the military brutality that Communist China threatens Taiwan with every day.

(Then again, we’re probably pretty sure it’s the really inexperienced punk writers that The Times has recently hired that made this massive error. And NYT’s publisher A.O. Sulzberger, Jr. will soon be called onto the carpet and forced to kowtow to the Communist bullies from the mainland so he will be able to keep doing business over there.) 

SNL As Post-Election Salve To America? What A Joke!

We couldn’t get away from numerous breathless media reviews of Saturday’s SNL post-election broadcast with host Dave Chappelle. It seems America couldn’t figure out what happened so they expected a lackluster collection of hack comedians – Chappelle excluded – to explain it to them.

And gee, did they get an unexpected bellyful of hoots.

Kate McKinnon as Hillary Clinton attempted to co-opt a Leonard Cohen song, “Hallelujah” with lyrics that made even the most casual Hillary follower roll their eyes: “I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come to fool you…”

Uh-humm. Comedy scribes can’t re-write history. And Hillary was hardly a truth-teller. So how is it a comedy show is trying to get America all misty-eyed over one of the most hardened political operators to have run on the Democratic ticket for decades? Hillary’s own campaign aides were on a constant mission throughout the campaign to make her seem “more likeable,” to get her to be more “genuine.”

To have an SNL performer portray Clinton as some bluesy, down-to-earth tragic figure belies the fact that only fools take the political opinions of entertainers seriously. No wonder all these people never saw it coming – they really didn’t get Clinton.

Really. The majority of Americans who voted for Clinton did so with the clear-eyed vision that she was a very imperfect candidate.

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

It must be said that those millions who tune into SNL have become the unquestioning, undemanding echo-chamber types.

You want to see something raw and relevant from SNL? Go back to its first season, 1975, when Richard Prior hosted for the first time. Up until then the episodes were choppy and had no direction. Suddenly, with Prior, SNL had an attitude and an “in your face” identity.

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

If you want to know about SNL today, like anything, look behind the scenes: Lorne Michaels, the producer, has nothing on his mind but money deals with his money partners, and this drives who he hand-picks to be on the show, grooming them for later production deals with which he can make more millions.

NBC/Universal. It’s a multi-billion multi-national corporation formerly owned by…megalithic GE. Now owned by…Comcast, an octopus of a media corporation that is looking for control of everything from theme parks to Telemundo to MSNBC to Dreamworks. They want to control content and then they want to control how you receive that content.

That’s Orwellian.

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

But, hey. You just want to watch some funny skits. Get distracted. Forget about all the big issues.

That’s what they want you to do, too. And they don’t want you to notice them while they’re doing it.
