The Media Isn’t Rigged. It’s Just Left.

Rush Limbaugh played the following President Obama quote:

“If all you’re doing is watching Fox News and listening to Rush Limbaugh and reading some of the blogs that are churning out a lot of misinformation on a regular basis, then it’s very hard for you to think that you’re going to vote for somebody who you’ve been told is taking the country in the wrong direction,” Obama said last month.

He added, if I listened to all that I wouldn’t vote for me neither!
 
The humor in all this is Obama clearly doesn’t listen to Fox at all – he would know they bend overe backwards to be “Fair and Balanced” – even to the point Bill O’Reilly has to have a gratuitous prop to the President or some other leftists in the midst of scandal or chaos. Don’t get me wrong, they do criticize based on the facts, but they also make puff statements and blow smoke to prove they live up to their motto.
 
Trump is out saying the Election is rigged and the media is rigged. The oh-so supportive GOP party for which he is running – his supposed support crew – is all saying ‘Nope, not rigged.’ My response is, this is ‘#Establishment’ vs. ‘#CountryClass’.
 
Critically thinking, I consider the context of what is rigged vs. not rigged. The #Establishment does everything it can to make nice with the media. They are the same #Establishment club. So any #Establishment Republican (or Democrat for that matter) saying media isn’t rigged, just consider the source. They don’t want to upset their buddies and continue getting favorable news coverage.
 
On the flip side, we in the #CountryClass watch:

  • A Media that loved Trump in the Primary, turn vicious cold against him in the General Election
  • Lester Holt Hammering the Republican Nominee in debate while giving Mrs. Clinton a couple softballs
  • Martha Raditz becomes a debater of Trump in 2nd Debate – Hillary’s job
  • Wikileaks is dumping Hillary’s email server left and right with evidence of Felonious Wrong-doing … and our news outlets lead with allegations of Trump’s Sex Accusers
    even the precious Megyn Kelly on precious “Fox News” did the same
    No one I saw devoted time to the TRUTH of the Hillary Wikileaks scandal.
  • NBC Executives leak an Access Hollywood tape with Trump on a Hot mic taling Lewdly – Billy Bush bragged to his network of the tapes existence in August
    • An Aside: In a bit of Karma, Billy Bush was bit by his own malice and was fired by NBC from the Today Show yesterday
 
watching Megyn Kelley tonight, Carl Cameron said “And Trump is not running against the Media, he’s running against Hillary Clinton.” While Trump is running against Clinton, Carl is myopically ignoring the Media running against Trump.
 
Now, love him or hate him, Julienne Assange, of Wikileaks, had his internet access blocked by the Ecuadorian government to prevent further Wikileaks drops – purportedly encouraged by our own Secretary of State, John Kerry
 
All this to say – if it’s a Republican/Right shaming – they Media is all over it, leading with the story. If it’s a slow news day with only explosive Democrat/Left-wing scandal – – the media will reincarnate, invent a leading story that will involve denegrating, putting in a bad light, the Right Wing opponent. More on that in a few paragraphs.
Here is a list of the News stories as screen shot from my phone today. All of this when there is crazy Bombshell Hillary news exploding all over the place:
  • A Lovely, shining profile picture of Hillary that just makes you want to trust and vote for her. Maybe even grab a happy hour with her:

    <.div>
  • Next Frame down, media (and Apple News) telling me Trump is crazy, and how people should react to it:

  • Women hate Trump’s Antics. Feminized Congressman  (his Testes are in Hillary Clinton’s Testical Lock-box) Mitch McConnell denounces Trump

 

Finally, DrudgeReport itemizes top links to Explosive news, (British or non-mainstream sources.) American media will avoid making their candidate, Hillary, look bad.

Apologies for the “ringer” icon in the center. Consequences of gathering material while riding in the car with my wife while engaged in other conversation.
 
So, is the Media “rigged”? It can sure look like it is. A Dem staffer was caught in the Hillary email dump sending out marching orders to all the Main-stream media – giving what to say for any given scenario to the “State-run media.” there is definitely coordination happening. This coordination is simple amongst themselves because it’s already in their hearts.
 
The media is populated by a bunch of leftist who participate in Group-think. That is why I say, they are just “Left.”
 

 

Quick note:


This article is a good lesson on Leftists (Obama is one) wanting to restrict our First Amendment Rights whenever they say things like:

“We are going to have to rebuild within this wild-wild-west-of-information flow some sort of curating function that people agree to,” Obama said.

Curating done by leftists. If you don’t agree with them get denied freedom or even put in Jail (ala Hitler or Stalin). Was that too harsh for sensitive eyes and ears? I digress.


Character Matters

Flipping “A”!
Matter of fact, flip the whole alphabet!
 
Who would’ve guessed in 2016 we’d have possibly the two candidates for president with the worst character we’ve seen on a national stage?  There was a day when the character of the president – fidelity, honesty, stability, work ethic, etc – really mattered.  And the candidates would get smeared if they fell short.
 
Even reaching back into my ‘old’ life as far back as Jimmy Carter vs. Gerald Ford (Richard Nixon’s Vice President assumed office) in 1976, you would not have been able to assail their character. Everything was based on policy and what they made of their lives – even though thar result was determined by emotion. The country was still fresh out of Watergate (ironically prosecution assisted by Hillary Cliton’s research fresh out of college.).
 
Jimmy Carter was no doubt a disaster, and even acknowledged by the media and fellow politicians as well as the country-class, but he had foolish policies based on his good intentions. His character largely remains unassailable.
 
Ronald Reagan had impeccable character.
George H.W. Bush – impeccable character
Bill Clinton was the start of the visible character slide. “It’s the Ecnomoy Stupid” and “It’s just sex” were the slogans of his time. (His problems are known and don’t need to be itemized here
George W. Bush – impeccable character
Barak Obama – Largely recognized to have impeccable character, but we are seeing things come out now concerning how he approached policy that makes me question it [Iran Deal, Fast & Furious, Lying about Obama Care’s affect on the country)
 

*sigh* And here we are today with two options

Donald Trump – Caught making indefensible statements about some gals. Cheating on his wife/wives. Even caught talking about wanting to cheat on his now-wife Melania on that audio. BAD
Hillary Clinton – Actively smeared the “innocent” and even “not-so-innocent” women who crossed Pres. Bill Clinton’s path utilizing the “Bimbo Erruption War Room.” Setting up/running pay-for-play Clinton Foundation. Getting Child Rapists off of charges. The illegal email server and the lying and obfuscation around that. Benghazi where people died because of her decisions. Terror-state Iran’s legitimization through her policies.
 
There are obvious differences between Trump and Hillary, surrounding primarily how they made their fortunes, and the policies they want to implement for the direction of this country.
 
There are similarities also, and this relates to character which I alluded to above. Cheating. Lying. Obfuscation. Out there in the open. Hillary still denies, clouds, and diverts attention before, during, and after getting caught. When she lies she speaks her natural tongue. Trump has perversion in his heart. Undeniable. And this turns off a lot of people and rightly so.
 
Trump is a pig. Hillary is a crooked, lying, Pig defender. They are the same.
 
One big difference anyone with seeing eyes can catch is the lopsided outrage for Trump’s actions vs. the lapdog libreal media excusing Hillary for every right and left turn she takes. If you watch MS/NBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, NPR, even some on Fox – the coverage slams Trump all of the time. We in the country-class are mostly driven by what we see on our devices or our Television..
 
We will see a lineup of people on the media slamming Trump. Even Mike Pence and Melania Trump refuse to defend. Good thing they maintain their own character stance. Locker room talk or not, it deserves to be derided.
        But where has the outrage been over the B.S. and illegal activity of Hillary? Nowhere to be seen – except maybe Fox, which the left likes to denegrate and impugn so the closed-minded of our society (yeah, thats you out there in the country class who pretent to be high-minded) can discount it and not even bother to consider what is said. There are no endless parades of guests on the libreral networks slamming Trump AND Clinton. One-sided. Chris Matthews anyone?
 
The character lapse on both sides are heinous and both deserve equal scrutiny. Neither of these candidates should be up for consideration. If this were {Ted Cruz/Marco Rubio/Ben Carson/Carly Fiorina/John Kasich} VS Bernie Sanders would we be having these conversations!? HECK NO! The Democrat voters can at least claim they got robbed of Bernie via Super-Delegates. Republicans? Yeah, Trump was #CHOSEN# by a majority of voters – #Establishment revolt not withstanding. But either way, the bad character rose to the top.
 
That is a comment on our culture and how far the US has slid.
Down.
Into the gutter.
 
You people out there pushing Gary Johnson the libertarian, know this: he is not a true libertarian. He just wants to legalize Cannabis. That also reflects on our culture slide.
 
I appreciate the fact there is “moral” outrage over Trump’s comments. It shows to some level we care about character within a person. I wonder if that outrage rooted in the political correctness of our day as opposed to ‘it’s just the wrong thing to say.’ I am a male who grew from a boy to man in the United States of America. I have heard that type of talk more often than I can recall. And how many of you, before you start throwing stones, have seen or done the same. Growing up in a home with a single mom and my sister tended to curb that talk in my life, but I’m sure it was in my heart. Just like you.
 
The lack of moral outrage over Hillary’s actions is disconcerting, but I am hopeful – as I mentioned above – that is more a media painted picture. I don’t recall growing up any talk or actions I or someone I knew that unethically raised money, destroyed innocent peoples reputations, or got people killed. #JustSaying
 
We are seeing a definite downward trend that reflects our culture as a whole.
 
As long as we as culture keep tolerating this type of behavior we will keep getting what we ask for. And I supposed we’ll keep being (or pretending to be) outraged. If you want to turn this around, start within yourself, and share that with others. Hold ourselves and others to the higher standard. As the floor keeps getting lower, that standard gets higher, and I am less hopeful we will be able to go back minus an act of God Himself. May he have mercy on us and our children.
 
Character does matter.

Trump 2005 Lewd Recording, and becoming Pastor-in-Chief?

Trump is having a private conversation with an Access Hollywood reporter, Brandon Bush, in 2005 riding a bus to Soap Opera set.  He’s talking about picking up on a married woman, wanting to “Eff” her and because he’s a star women will let him do whatever he wants.  “Grab them by the P- – – y”.
REALLY!?
{Palm to forehead – slapped really hard}
Yes America.  This IS the Republican nominated to run for President, 2016.
You know this garbage is going to come out – on both sides.  I hope Trump is not afraid to pull out some October Surprises of his own.  The Democrats (of which the main stream media is a functioning organ) play for keeps.  His apology video was short and to the point, and stated at the end, “ this is a distraction from the real issues.”  He’s right.  Seriously, if this were Pee Wee Herman (famous Back-in-the-day Kid star who visited porn movie theaters) running for president and his past surfaced – if he was holding the same positions as Trump, and running against Hillary Clinton, I would still feel the same.  #NeverHillary.
After the Vice Presidential Debates last Tuesday (the Tim Kaine Interruptus-Magnanimus debates) all the Democrat/Liberal Controlled media repeatedly said (Network or newscast didn’t matter) … (From Washington Post Headline: “Mike Pence’s debate was great for Pence 2020 and decidedly less great for Trump 2016”)   I love it when Rush Limbaugh does an audio montage .  Everyone from every network all said the same exact thing as that headline.  They got their marching orders and regurgitated them.
Seriously, if Pence would be good for President, do you think he would’ve run and been selected during the primaries?   Were Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Carly Fiorina or Ben Carson not good enough to carry that mantle?
Just more spin.
Then this gets better with Hillary saying on Twitter:
“This is horrific. We cannot allow this man to become president.”
This from the woman who not only knew her husband was abusing women, but created a War Room to handle “Bimbo Eruptions” (Click link for another Washington Post Article) )in which she systematically destroyed the credibility of any accuser.
  • Abuse
  • Sexual Harassment
  • One instance of rape we know of
Hillary Stood by her man.
Deplorable.  Oh Wait!  My Bad … those are the Trump Supporters, so pronounced by Hillary.   (NYTimes Article)
And lastly, pillar of virtue, Planned Parenthood Executive Vice President Dawn Lagoons saying weighed in :
“What Trump described in these tapes amounts to sexual assault.”
He was engaging in a behavior “they” (Planned Parenthood) promote so they can get more business from people Dilating and Vacating a pregnancy one didn’t expect. 
The Hypocrisy is just thick.  Its the blatancy that makes my toes tingle.
Trump rightly says of Hillary:
“Hillary Clinton was married to the single greatest abuser of women in the history of politics,” Trump told the New York Times in a recent interview. “Hillary was an enabler, and she attacked the women who Bill Clinton mistreated afterward. I think it’s a serious problem for them, and it’s something that I’m considering talking about more in the near future.”
Last, but not least, all the Republican Establishment are backing away from the comments (Rightly so) and canceling appearances with the Donald at campaign events (a bit overboard, given the political smell this season.)
I like what a friend of mine said recently: “We are electing a Commander-in-Chief, not a Pastor-in-chief.”
The stakes are high for our country after eight years of Obama’s “Hope and Change” wrecked much of the US culture and economy. Many people rightly feel the presidency should be occupied by someone of High moral character, a person to look up to.
Yeeeeahhh. That ain’t this year.  Vote for the candidate who’s platform is to bring health to the US economy and culture (despite failings.)  Vote for Commander in Chief.  Not pastor in chief.

Debates, Lies and Sex Tapes

Things are getting serious in this US presidential race, 2016.  Hillary brings up a former Miss Universe, Alicia Machado, and in true Trump form, he:

  • First: gets Squirreled at the debates with Alicia
  • Second: starts tweeting at 3am about the former Miss Universe
  • Third: Trump sends out a siren call to find Alicia’s sex tape

From what I read in the 5 facts about this whole Alicia Machado business – yes its “Trump-bart” but its more a less a “Just the facts Ma’am” column – that tape is not too hard to find:

3. Machado damaged her own reputation by having sex live on television.

Hillary has a point about Temperament. He’s a bit unhinged no doubt.  I think he should let Eric or D.J.Trump Jr. start handling that for him.  Someone needs to ratchet him back.

I think of Ronald Reagan, known as the “Great Communicator.”  He handled all of this type of communication relatively well.  Sam Donaldson of ABC News would always be part of the press core strongly persisting in asking questions, and Reagan would basically say  “Oh that’s just Sam.”  There is wisdom in striving to preserve the relationship while maintaining your integrity in your answers.

Trump is reflecting or conveying the mood of the country.   I think he resonates on that level with many people.  But the thing is, as the leader of a party, country, movement, he would do well to show a calmer demeanor rather than allowing his emotions to get the better of him.  The positive things he says gets overshadowed by being, well, overshadowing: making the story about himself; defending himself rather than going on attack; tweeting it all so it can be kept in perpetuity on the Internet for anyone to see – for all time.

A Fox News, Megan Kelly interview revealed Alicia did have an eating disorder before the pageant (something she claimed was instigated by Trump criticism) and that Alicia has no one to corroborate her story Trump called her names (Piggy, Housekeeping.)  And of course Trump denies it, but doubling down on the comment he never made inferring it was a beauty pageant and she had to keep the weight now. Ahhh!  Can’t he just stay on a reasonable sense of offense!?

For the next debate he needs to keep in mind there will be another pre-planned, pre-coordinated “gotcha.” Instead of picking on Hillary for staying home (trying to allude to her health problems) he ought to take a cue and come off the trail for a few days to prep.  Whenever he goes on stage it’s him against Hillary and the media – both have the same goal of taking him out.    He could even think of a few gotcha’s on his own.

Comparing Trump’s Temperament to Hillary’s judgement, this is a slam dunk.

  • using the Clinton Family Foundation as a personal pay-for-play piggy bank
  • Taking out Colonel/General Muammar Gaddafi (After he said he’d be friends with the US)
  • Running guns to Syrian Rebels who eventually became ISIS
  • allowing the Benghazi embassy to be sacked, with loss of life, without sending security reinforcements, despite repeated advance requests
    • blaming an obscure video by an unknown producer for the riots: and throwing him in jail
  • Using a personal email server for state business
  • Deleting emails off said server AFTER Congress issues a Subpoena for those emails

On and on … I don’t want to reitemize everything here, but she shows a blatant disregard for the Law and has the Establishment covering her back.  She has bad judgement, and this would be bad news for the country.

Trump is NOT establishment, and he has a bit of a chip on his shoulder about the Establishment’s behavior. If Trump doesn’t drop his “Defend myself” posture and go on attack by asking his own questions of Hillary, or pushing issues the Main Stream Media will never ask, he will lose.  People will see him as petulant and not up for the task

But,k if he rises above all of it, keeping his cool, staying focused (NO SQUIRRELS!) while directing any attempt to derail back onto Hillary’s records and stated objectives, there is no doubt he will win.

And one more thing Mr. Trump: PLEASE PREPARE FOR THE NEXT DEBATE – Squirrel!
