Translation = What Would The Founders Think Of This Crap?

The founders of this country, you know, those old, dead, white guys, paid special attention to free speech and gave journalism a special protection in the 1st Amendment to the Constitution. They wanted to be sure that there would be watchdogs between the government and the people.

It turns out that isn’t working so well. In our time most of the journalists have taken sides. That may not make them the enemy of the people as Trump and many on the right maintain, in my opinion it does make them the enemy of truth.

Many journalists have been biased over the centuries. Human nature being what it is that was always going to be a problem. If it labels itself opinion, then no harm no foul.

When most of the media, the journalists, take sides and unleash their bias there is a harm and that is a foul.

Some days I look around and I am dumbfounded. What is wrong with people? What happened to common sense, decency and the ability to think? What happened to a free press? A watchdog between the people and their government?

I want, I expect, the media to inform us of things that are wrong with an administration. I do not want or expect them to believe it is their job to take one down. That appears to be what is happening now. Much as I enjoy watching the arrogant media being smacked around a war between them and POTUS is not a good thing.

As always I then look to cartoons and the brilliant cartoonists on the right to find some sense or at least a chuckle or two.

Sadly, the cartoonists on the left are usually just as crazy as the rest of the left. What else would you expect from people who have made government and abortion their religion?

The cartoon below is just one of many about the media’s sudden return to reporting now that their idol Obama is gone. Often they just report on stuff they read on Twitter or Facebook or simply made up. Cartoonist Nate Beeler nails their hypocrisy perfectly.

Even if you don’t like Donald Trump, I don’t. Even if you didn’t vote for him or want him to be president, I didn’t. You can still enjoy, or regard with disgust, the over-the-top hysteria of the media and the insane leftists.

He should add that he also got the arrogant media, you know the ones that think they are so much smarter than all the rest of us, to fund most of his campaign. Of course they only did that because they knew that he would be the easiest nominee for unlikable and corrupt Hillary to defeat. Maybe they weren’t as smart as they thought they were.

A majority of the public believe Trump and all his bluster and b.s. over the MSM. Generations of bias finally emerged into full view with the Obama Administration. That merely confirmed what anyone that wasn’t a full blown leftist always suspected.

Trump calls them often on their “fake news.” He who is also guilty is casting a lot of stones. The media fights back. Thus the media that is supposed to report the news has become the news. Their whines are everywhere.

Trump attacking them, like they are attacking him, is downright Un-American whimpers little Chuckie Todd from his place as a liberal activist posing as a Journalist.

Lucky for the media that they are able to find some members of the Republican Party to help them in their bias. The ever brilliant A.F. Branco, of Legal Insurrection, calls two of them out by name with this timely cartoon.

Maybe we should just explain things slowly, carefully and succinctly to those in the media who are having hysterics all over the airwaves.

Ben Shapiro, one of my favorite writers, is not in favor of a war between Trump and the media.  He admits he enjoys watching Trump stomp on them from time to time. But he sees, as do many of us, why so many people are choosing sides and it isn’t the side of the media.   Ben Shapiro:This Insane Headline From NBC News Is Why Conservatives Hate The Media

And meanwhile CNN whines about Trump calling them “fake news” while consistently reporting fake news.

Media and the left suggest that Trump is a Nazi, a Dictator, a racist, and other evils too numerous to mention. Some of these poor mistreated folk suggest that the Trump problems are worse than Watergate. No proof of course but those that worship at the alter of Trump hate believe. Just as those that worship at the alter of Trump love will believe nothing bad about him.

During the campaign I thought that Trump was nuts. Now I realize that he has more company in the nut ward than I could have ever imagined. Many of them are in the newsrooms of America.

Meanwhile he tweets, the media responds, the left insists that he isn’t a legitimate POTUS, women dress up as vaginas to protest God knows what and the insanity seems to grow by the day.

A media that actually did it’s job could help to calm some of the chaos – instead they ramp it up. Then spend a good part of their time whining about how mistreated they are when the completely ignore the way they were treated by Barack Obama.

    LOL – I absolutely LOVE the title of this excellent post, Marge. Well done!

    And you are so right abt both the media, and the company Trump has in the nut ward. Good GRIEF, these “news” people are going, well, NUTS, and spewing flat out LIES abt what Trump says.

    Now you know I hate having to keep defending Trump, but just this morning I saw a report of a black reporter claiming that Trump said WHITE people built this country and made it great when questioning Sean Spicer after Trump’s speech yesterday at the African American Museum. Trump said NOTHING of the kind, yet she continues to stand by her quote. WTH????

    Here’s the link:

    These people have lost their freakin’ minds.

      Maybe she read it on Twitter or Facebook.

      The fact that I am defending Trump is one of the many insane things that are now a part of my life.

      Does this twit not realize that she is only adding to the number of people that do not trust what they hear or see from the crazy left?

      Even those willing to give the benefit of a doubt get tired of being lied to when the lies are too obvious.

      There was a fool commenting on one thread at Right Scoop yesterday who pushing a story she read on Facebook. And it must be true because the man that wrote it was a Pastor. And all the little #NeverTrumpers swarmed to agree with her. There seems to be no end to their TDS.

    These cartoons / images are beyond a doubt an accurate commentary of our current political and reportage chaos.

    I would love to give a piece of advice to Donald – just govern and quit your relentless quest for adulation and approval. The press along with the haters, certain Dems, and various groups are never going to like you and will bash you and your policies until the day your term is over.

    Being a glass half filled type of person, I didn’t see or maybe didn’t want to see how destructive obamas’ policies have been for our country and citizens. What they have created is a bunch of snowflakes whinnying about everything, more poverty than before, a dearth of thinking along with history knowledge, free money which grows in everybody’s trees except mine, an inability to separate wants from needs, and a climate of fear and disdain between groups breaking us into ?????? Meanwhile Obama and his family have gotten rich upon our backs and will be revered as some kind of idol instead of the derisive nasty man he is and havoc he leaves in his wake.

    End of Rant for today. Will be riding my bike later in celebration of another beautiful warm day here (before the next snowfall which the ground hog predicted)

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      Rant away Piper. I believe that venting is good for the digestion.

      Enjoy your ride Piper. Isn’t this weather amazing? I am loving it as I sit here with the sun streaming in the six large windows in my living room/dining room. Solar power baby – down goes the the gas bill!

    James O’Keefe set to release ‘hundreds of hours’ of newsroom footage that will destroy CNN

    James O’Keefe of Project Veritas is set to unleash holy hell Thursday on #FakeNews network CNN. Well, he didn’t exactly say it was CNN, but it was heavily implied. Apparently the network has a mole…

    O’Keefe is known for undercover sting operations which have led to such bombshells as the DNC’s paid agitator network, the outing of “DisruptJ20” / Antifa organizers which took place at comet ping pong – and netted three arrests (including a suspected pedophile), and most recently New Hampshire election fraud.

      Really like this person – her knowledge, calmness and willingness to stand up against the ‘hallowness’ and men of the UN.

      Can see her as the first female president of the United States of America!!!!!

    Great accurate poster about radical islam. So many people are blind to the realities of life under islam rule especially the ‘vaginas’ who think the mullahs will allow them to flaunt their bodies in public as they do here. Even the crazy Swedish leaders who talk big while at home, covered up and dressed appropriately when meeting islamic leaders and visiting the Mideast. But let’s blast those who call out the practices / behavior. Thy name is hypocrisy.

    Obama’s Incompetence And Chaos Far Eclipsed What’s Coming From Team Trump

    Many in the media are warning that President Donald Trump is incompetent and doesn’t know what he’s doing. His ignorance, they say, will mean the downfall of the republic. The hysteria is unwarranted and merely part of a Democratic Party campaign to oust the president and derail his agenda.

    This isn’t the first president to face claims of incompetence. Sometimes they’re right and sometimes not. Such charges were made against Barack Obama, and most were warranted, coming not only from Republicans but Democrats. In November 2010, Joe Scarborough reported that several Democratic senators had told him they thought Obama was out of his league.

    If a tree falls in the forest…

    If the media refuses to report it, and people aren’t aware of it, perhaps it never happened at all.

    Steve Deace schools CNN’s Jake Tapper on why the term ‘undocumented immigrant’ is a load of BS

    Deace’s “tweetstorm” to Tapper is terrific!

    An interesting quote from Hannah Arendt about the power of lies

    ‘If everybody always lies to you, the consequence is not that you believe the lies, but rather that nobody believes anything any longer. This is because lies, by their very nature, have to be changed, and a lying government has constantly to rewrite its own history. On the receiving end you get not only one lie—a lie which you could go on for the rest of your days—but you get a great number of lies, depending on how the political wind blows. And a people that no longer can believe anything cannot make up its mind. It is deprived not only of its capacity to act but also of its capacity to think and to judge. And with such a people you can then do what you please.’
