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.

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.

ESPN Sucks: 5 Takeaways

1. ESPN is owned by The Walt Disney Company, a  corporation that rakes in $52 Billion dollars every year and is only interested in making many more billions of dollars.

2. ESPN makes a habit of promoting the most powerful sports’ interests.

The latest example would be their blatant Duke/Louisville basketball commercials where they make a hero out of Duke’s creepy, cheating Grayson Allen. Does it matter to ESPN that Allen has been repeatedly kicking hitting opponents and is despised by most Americans who value sportsmanship?

No. ESPN wants to make this creep a hero.

3. The number one mantra of every good American should be: “Question Authority.” ESPN will never question authority because they are invested in the status quo.

See a bad call on the football field or on the ball court? ESPN announcers rarely question referees’ or officials’ calls. Questioning authority upsets the status quo. Even though all of America sees what is unfair, ESPN people are blind.

4. ESPN lies by omission.

Before Alabama woefully lost to Clemson in the national championship game, ESPN already crowned Alabama the champ, reporting countless stories and video feeds promoting the invulnerability of the Alabama football team.

Whoops!

Then after Clemson kicked Alabama’s butt in the championship game ESPN practically ignored the results and ignored Clemson’s victory.

Why?

Because ESPN owns the SEC Network where Alabama plays. It is in ESPN’s financial interest to promote Alabama.

Clemson? ESPN won’t make money off Clemson. So they ignore them.

Everyone’s up on fake news. How about “fake non-news?”

5. These “Takeaway” things are just plain silly so make up your own for this last one…

PS: Dan Dakich and Kirk Herbstreit are the 2 exceptions at ESPN: They are both very good at what they do.

NYT’s Writer Makes UN African Boy’s Murder All About Her

When the US Ambassador to the UN’s car callously murders a small boy on a trip to Africa you’d think it would be news.

For New York Times writers it’s just an excuse to glorify their own life stories, not unlike callous teenagers who, when faced with monstrous world events, turn obsessively to ruminate on how everything effects them.

NYT’s writer Helene Cooper in today’s Times uses the pronoun “I” so many times in an article about an African boy’s murder by UN Ambassador Samantha Powers motorcade that you’d think she was the one that was hit, bounced in the air and then ignored by Americans on a supposed “mercy” trip to Africa.

“I, I, I, I, I, I” and on, and on, and on.

Writer Cooper supposedly uses the first person to express outrage at the boy’s murder.

But in the end, the article is nothing more than the glorification of the writer, elevating herself above the story, elevating her “feelings” of outrage, turning journalism into nothing more than a Facebook post by an over-emotional adolescent teenager.

Making the story not about the horrific death of a 6 year old African boy, but instead all about the feelings of a privileged New York Times writer.

How do you feel about that, Helene Cooper?

New York Times Desecrates The Dead: Debbie Reynolds; George Michael

After the New York Times disastrous miscalculation on the 2016 election of Donald Trump, they have gone though a much ballyhooed reformation in order to present the world’s affairs to its readers in a – well, some kinda different format.

A very ugly example of this new format has been its coverage of the recent deaths of Pop star George Michael and Film star Debbie Reynolds.

NYT’s writer Wesley Morris threw out extended stories on Michael and Reynolds lives under the creepy title “An Appraisal.”

“An Appraisal?”

Those of us in the civilized world understand “An Appreciation” of someone’s life after they have passed on. But, an “appraisal?”

Appraisals are something you do to a used car. An appraisal is something you do to a piece of property.

After an artist has just died, you do NOT offer up an appraisal.

Unless, of course, you are a crass, wallowing-in-a-moral-morass NYT’s writer.

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

Need an example of some “appraisals” from NYT’s writer Morris? How about:

“Who the hell is gonna be named Debbie?” on Ms. Reynolds.

Or calling Ms. Reynolds “a casually narcissistic gorgon of a mother.”

Or his vicious hits on George Michael, just a day after his death, ridiculing his “butch” style or making left-handed cuts about his homosexuality.

Incredulously, this quat writer Morris puts this stuff out in a – yes – casually narcissistic manner meant to be chatty and endearing.

If this dude were ever speaking at a wake, we’re sure he’d end up buried before the person in the casket.

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

How about this: Since we can’t trust The New York Times to properly appraise our current political or world situations, why the HELL do they think they can appraise the lives of artists who have done much to add joy to this world?

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.) 

“Hamilton” Schools VP-Elect Pence; Trump Twitters Apology Demand!

Last night on Broadway the future Vice-President of these United States got schooled by the cast of “Hamilton.”

And well he should.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/arts-and-entertainment/wp/2016/11/19/trump-demands-apology-from-hamilton-after-casts-message-to-pence/

The virulently anti-gay, anti-diversity, Antediluvian VP-elect Mike Pence is a born-again Christian who as governor of the backwoods state of Indiana did all he could to turn back the clock to witch-burning times.

The nation has no concept of the pure doltishness of Michael Pence, but they are about to find out.

Clueless news outlets like The New York Times make fatuous claims that Pence somehow will provide a steadying hand to Trump simply because Pence has some experience in public office.

Those who know know that Pence has sawdust for brains. And his record in private practice and in public service show repeatedly his wits are as leaden as the water coming out of a Flint, Michigan water faucet.

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

And our President-Elect is already firing off Twitter threats – This time against a Broadway cast.

My gawd.

The terrorists of the world are laughing. Now they know if they attack America after Donald J. Trump is president, all they have to fear is a Twitter demand for an apology.
