Hunter Biden’s laptop. Lia Thomas’s win. Melting Teddy Roosevelt. And more.
Anybody else starting to feel like everything the MSM/elites/Big Tech/Twitterati/and our noble overlords declare “Russian disinformation” ends up being true within a couple of years?
It is glaringly clear American history is not being taught. If it was Teddy Roosevelt would be venerated rather than canceled. He was a tower of a man and a model person in every way. Our country owes a huge debt to him for the national parks alone. There would be no Natural History Museum had it not been for his father. His father was a good and decent man and a philanthropist. He worked tirelessly to raise the funds to build the Natural History Museum. The world of the intelligentsia is diseased and it has infected young adults. I am reading Gad Saad's The Parasitic Mind. We have to find a way to overcome this mind virus.
Looking to the mainstream media for truth is like looking to a prostitute for love. I more or less consider this axiomatic nowadays.
But here's the thing: Information delayed is information denied. Withholding this Biden laptop shit show was a deliberate fraud perpetrated by the vast majority of liberal media in the critical weeks before the 2020 election.
I do not care what side of the political spectrum you sit on, nor do I care who you voted for or whether you're partial to Donkeys or Elephants. And it bothers the hell out of me that so many people no longer see themselves as Americans first and foremost because allegiances have become tribal. But if you care about this country and its longevity, it should bother you, if not infuriate you, that a veritable cartel of MSM outlets, Big Tech, elites, and Democrats conspired to suppress and/or outright lie in order to influence a US presidential election.
This is not a jeremiad against the left. Yes, I know there are scumbags on the right as well; I know that Trump wasn't exactly a moral standard-bearer, and that he does indeed have a fetishistic attachment to petty lying; I know that the Trump family likely has plenty of "dirt," too.
But the continued corruption of the infosphere on which modern democracy and public decision-making depend is going to ruin this country if we don't do something about the moral equivalency and political expediency routinely practiced by our "leaders." Fuck.
The Friday summary is that the left ruins everything it addresses, women’s sport, public health, reporting, history, education, the economy, race relations, the justice system, cities, homeless violence.
So the 2020 election WAS influenced by disinformation.
In 2020, The New York Post published Hunter's emails. The New York Times published the 1619 Project. Res Ipsa Loquitur.
".. 68% of San Franciscans say they are going to vote to recall progressive prosecutor Chesa Boudin,.." In anticipation of his recall, the other 38% have accelerated their looting. Time to stock up.
“Officials and activists have been determined to frame it as an issue of white supremacist violence. But the trouble is: most of the perpetrators are homeless, mentally ill and not white.”
Does not white mean black? Is it too politically incorrect to point out that blacks and basically only blacks, are assaulting and killing Asians and whites? Last week a black guy from Orlando killed two white people in Daytona Beach. Why? Because he’s black I guess and thinks he can.
It's pretty rich watching people call out others for treason for not supporting Ukraine, who themselves wouldn't be caught dead flying the US flag.
Are we still supposed to be worshipping Zelensky today or is something else going to be the distraction from our economy being destroyed by Joe Biden?
I don't know who needs to hear this...but it's OK to NOT throw your full, blind support behind a wold leader- Zelensky- who you know nothing about and who the corporate media seem intent on getting you to worship.
Thanks for this. It is important to distinguish between resisting current push to cast Zelenski as a brave hero and man of his people and saying that is support for Putin. It feels very much like we are being pushed into war with Russia by leaning on our tendency to side with David over Goliath. One can be against Putin's actions but not trust Zelenski at the same time. One does not need to be a conspiracy theorist to connect the dots in the laptop story and the corruption then and assume the same or worse continues to today.
So everyone can now admit how corrupt Biden is with his kickbacks from Hunter? But I’m sure there’s some reason why this is not a problem and nothing to see here.
Oh oh oh wait! Is this where the beginning of the end for Joey comes? Because the DNC has put out the word to it’s media lickspittles?
FYI, the blonde Brit shown telling Lia Thomas's mentor "I'm not a vet, but I know what a dog is" is well-known gender critical feminist Kellie Jay Keen, aka Posie Parker, who is visiting the States this week. Founder of the organization, "Standing for Women," she's been kicked off Twitter (though someone runs an account under her real name) but is active on youtube. She is completely unafraid to speak her mind, and I have a lot of respect for her.
Thanks Nellie with leading with the story that proves the 2020 election was unfairly and likely illegally influenced to install a senile imbecile in our White House. Maybe not by outright ballot tampering but with a massive disinformation and information suppression campaign by the leftist media and the tech giants that made the old Pravda and Izvestia look like amateurs in comparison. And lets also not forget the authors of the infamous letter by "former intel folks" who claimed the laptop story was "Russian disinformation". Who authored that letter? Brennan, Clapper, Hayden, Panetta and a remainder of nobodies added for heft. And whose headlines screeched that the letter was proof? The same media and tech giants. All of the above should be charged with federal election law violations. But they won't be because the reptilian Garland runs the "Injustice Department." Will the American people will remember who stole their right to vote in a free election? And trashed equal protection and due process.
Nellie makes one other observation but doesn't have space to develop it sufficiently, although it is tangentially related to the laptop story (given Hunter's corrupt Ukrainian gambit). Lunatics such as those on the View who screech that Tulsi Gabbard and Tucker Carlson should be investigated for telling the truth are beneath contempt. Ukrainians are fighting for their nation and their bravery and pluck are truly laudable. And giving them weapons to fight back the invaders is the right policy. But to claim that the Ukrainians are allies fighting for democracy is laughable. Putin has unleashed a savage war against civilians and should be viewed as a war criminal. But American citizens such as Candace Owen, who are simply stating facts about Ukraine's corruption are neither Putin supporters nor fifth columnists. They are simply exercising their right to free speech and to speak the truth.
What I can’t understand is why BOTH Putin and President Zelensky can’t be bad people?
There is a weird push in the last 2 months to paint President Zelensky as some kind of hero when, for people that have been following Ukrainian politics for the past few years, many see him as less than honorable.
Just because Putin is bad doesn’t mean Zelensky is good.
They can both be bad.
Based on that Tweet Owens I think is just reflexively reverting to media bashing mode. In her defense I would say two things:
1. The real world is complex and any time that somebody tries to sell you a simple story of good versus evil they are conning you.
2. The media is uncritically parroting propaganda from the Ukrainian government. It is completely understandable why the the Ukrainians would produce propaganda since they are in an existential conflict where their future as independent country hangs in the balance. What is less certain is why Western media chooses to pass that propaganda along with zero due diligence.
For example, any time a story reports on Ukrainian estimates of Russia casualties it should also provided US intelligence reports as an alternate source given that Ukrainian counts consistently run twice as high as what the US estimates.
