We’re Farked!

It seems now that Evelyn “Park Yer” Farkas is desperately walking back her claims on MSNBC to have been involved in an anti-Trump classified intelligence distribution network that existed in the late Obama administration; and kicked into overdrive during its dying days to distribute (leak) the info to the MSM before they were kicked out of the White House.

The story has been essentially ignored by the major media but that didn’t stop Farkas from issuing a denial, claiming that she didn’t say what she clearly said. She described her MSNBC excerpt as being a “strange” and “edited” video that she didn’t recognize. Next she’ll be insisting that she was drugged, it was a pod person, a human robot created by Persona Synthetics, a doppelganger that appeared on MSDNC…er, MSNBC.

Obviously someone got to her and pointed out that she had just laid out a vast (illegal) conspiracy that she eagerly participated in.

Even worse, from the view of Democrats and the MSM, she validated Trump’s wiretapping claim. It’s hard to build a fake news meme when people on the side of the perpetrators confirm they were in league in instigating the very news that you are declaring is fake.

It’s reminiscent of the old Nixon-era Henry Kissinger quote, “Just because you are paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t out to get you.”

Farkas is the perfect specimen of the young highly-paid, politically-powerful, credentialed ninnies that proliferated throughout the Obama administration (Think Marie Harf). Arrogant, wholly lacking in experience, clueless and ignorant, they feel as if they have carte blanche because they are just so smart and so superior and so entitled to have power and to use it without consequence. These are the soldiers of the left-wing army deployed in conquest of total power. These are the people who will obediently, even gladly sign orders sending people with whom they disagree to reeducation camps and ultimately they’ll sign execution lists. They powered Soviet Russia, Nazi Germany, Red China, Khmer Rouge Cambodia, Castro’s Cuba… This new group has no historical knowledge of those eras and they don’t want any or care for any. They already know everything and they know what is best. Now get on that train car…

And This Guy Goes to Jail?

The Democrats and the media (one and the same) claimed another pair of Republican scalps with the conviction of former Chris Christie aides Bill Baroni and Bridget Kelly concerning traffic on a New Jersey bridge. Somehow Baroni and Kelly engineered for the New Jersey transpo people to realign some lanes on the bridge to cause chaos in retaliation for the local mayor’s refusal to endorse Christie’s run for governor.

Yes, monkey with traffic lanes — you know, kind of like what Democrat politicians do all the time when they want to cause chaos to press for more highway funds. “If we only had more (Federal) money we could fix these problems!”

But these were Republicans so the book was tossed at them.

However, my big point is that these two got actual jail time (he two years and she 18 months) for what was a messy political tug of war. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Crime Crew are still free despite committing several high crime felonies, notably the whole email server setup and then lying about it and then destroying evidence and then dissembling to investigators, etc…

Meanwhile, we have a steady state of leakage of classified (anti-Trump) information by Obama holdovers in the government and no one, at least in the Democratic Party or the media, benefiting from these leaks, is demanding investigations and then some hides in jail.

Then we get the Evelyn Farkas revelations that she was an (anti-Trump) information wrangler in the later days of the Obama administration. She had been a deputy assistant secretary of defense in the Obama administration (Oy!) until she left to join the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2015. So, after Hill was put down, Farkas (and others) apparently spent the interlude before Trump was inaugurated collecting and pushing dissemination of negative Trump info throughout Capitol Hill (and the media). Much, if not all of this information, was classified. Oddly, she was apparently, technically, unemployed at the time, yet had quite a bit of access to various intelligence agencies.

It’s wholly possible, and unclear from her MSNBC interview, that she may have been dealing in this classified information before the election and while still employed by the Clinton campaign. Imagine if this had been a Republican…

Farkas actually seems quite proud of what she did and completely oblivious that she looks to be confessing to a series of felonies and outlining a major Washington-based felony conspiracy that sounds like something out of a movie.

She perfectly characterizes the modern liberal’s belief that they are just so great, and their cause so pure that mere laws do not apply to them.

And they are all scot free…

So Let Me Get This Straight…

There’s no “evidence” that Trump’s “wires” were “tapped”; he was crazy to make such an accusation our Media/Democrat Industrial Complex tells us.

But, somehow, “U.S. officials” are hinting (actually illegally leaking) that they may have the goods backing up their fake story of “collusion” between Donald Trump and Russians. In fact, FBI Director James “The Kingmaker” Comey, has indicated that the Trump campaign has been surveiled since last summer.

Isn’t wiretapping one of the chief instruments of surveillance, especially long-term? And where is all the content for all these leaks coming from? It certainly sounds like phone conversation transcriptions. How were they obtained if not by wiretaps? Telepathy?

Of course there is the inconvenient fact that apparently at least one computer in the Trump Tower was being monitored by authorities. And what about news stories concerning FISA warrants aimed at Trump or at people near him?

Am I the only one finding it odd that Trump is portrayed as delusional or paranoid for thinking that someone has been watching him and maybe listening in yet, at the very same time, often in the next media story, they provide some kind of vague hint that authorities have evidence from surveillance that Trump and his campaign might be guilty of “collusion.”

They run these stories with a straight face and without the slightest awareness of the inherent conflicts of their stories – one or the other of these stories could be true but not both. Or they are aware of these conflicts and are just willing to blatantly lie while doing the dirty work of taking Trump down?

I’m entering a new phrase into the lexicon – media as warfare by other means. That is what we are experiencing.

Misunderestimating the Enemy

Many conservatives are ecstatic that Donald Trump consistently outplays the socialist party (i.e. the Democrats) and their media skirmishers.

They applauded his assertion that Obama had “tapped his wires,” many claiming this rendered the “Trump is a Putin puppet” and “Russia hacked the election” memes moot.

Just this week there’s talk that Rachel Madcow’s “exposure” of Trump’s tax returns from 2005 now washes the “Trump & Taxes” meme away because the returns don’t show anything negative (begging the question why Madcow breathlessly pimped these things — did she not understand them? Very possibly.) Some have even suggested that Trump himself may have done it just to neutralize the issue.

The problem with these angles is that they rely on the public comprehending the points and following the argument. In other words, it relies on a “rationality.”

This works fine on conservative websites with knowledgeable readers but your average person, reliant on getting the information from, or rather filtered by, the lamestream media, the propaganda arm of the socialist party.

It also relies on the dubious point that the media is rational and cannot ignore particular details of the story.

If you don’t think the media can peddle two conflicting narratives at the same time, you haven’t been paying attention for the last few decades. The Democrat-Media Complex can easily trot out Trump=Russian Puppet narrative while burying or soft-peddling Obama administration wiretapping.I hear it all the time.

Didn’t you notice how the media managed to whitewash the Clinton email scandal — rarely, if ever, mentioning felonies, FOIA, Hillary’s endless contradictions and changing story, and more? How many major media stories did you see on the Clinton Foundation’s various scams? That number would be zero…

Remember the whole Scooter Libby farce?Reported from Day One exactly as the Democratic Party fed it to the media.

No, my friends, sadly, festering Black Plague stories can easily be buried by the MSM.

It is precisely because this threatens liberal icons and shibboleths that these stories are distorted or selectively reported.

What the public is hearing is Trump=Russian Puppet, Election=Hacked by Russia because that’s what they are being told by the media. The propagandists are not obligated to report the truth or facts that they don’t like. This morning on WTOP they easily skipped that the tax returns did not have any “gotchas” in it. They quickly and seamlessly focused on points such as Trump hasn’t released all of his returns and winked that there must be bad things in those others; these returns had to be “leaked“ (without even exploring on the illegality of such an act); and, everyone knows, that the public has demanded that Trump release his tax returns but he hasn’t.

WTOP featured some reporter from CBS News Radio who effortlessly danced around the facts and hammered on the “politics” of the issue, which he was confident were a loser for Trump. Trump is always a loser in the eyes of the media folks.

The end result is that much of the public, catching bits and pieces of a complicated issue, imbibes Trump & Taxes=Bad. They really don’t know why it’s bad, it just is because it was reported as so.

This is how the “free press” is working these days.

Similarly, over the weekend and this week was the “U.S. Attorneys” story. Talk about fake news.

WTOP radio giddily repeated the talking points handed out by the Democrats, with breathless whining that several of these attorneys were caught off-guard and were frantically trying to get their subordinates up to speed on cases (Um, WTOP, it is those lower level attorneys who are actually up to speed since they do the work). It was only the last sentence wherein the newsreader quietly mentioned that the replacement of U.S. Attorneys by incoming administrations wasn’t unusual.

So the media is in the job of reporting things that are not unusual, WTOP?

But at least WTOP mentioned the truth, most others left the typical citizen completely in the dark and thinking that the outrageous Trump had perpetuated another outrageous thing (because that’s what he does), maybe even another “Saturday Night Massacre.” That’s a bad thing.

Then there was the absurdity of someone like Preet Bharara and several other Obama admin leftovers implying they didn’t have to resign their posts, as if those jobs belonged to them for as long as they wanted them. That they served at the pleasure of the president was rarely ever pointed out and never the subject of any MSM treatment of the story.

Were these angles used when the incoming Obama administration began removing Bush-apppointed U.S. Attorneys? No. The last timed those angles were explored was when the incoming Bush administration began relieving Clinton holdovers. This is only a story when it’s a Republican administration.

Hey, MSM how about this story angle, “Power-Crazed Political Appointees From Previous Administration Refuse to Leave Offices”? It’s more accurate than what you went with.

If the media had any decency, ethics or shame they’d hang their heads in shame.

But that’s not the goal of this exercise in disinformation. The goal: the public hears Trump & U.S Attorneys=Bad.

Mission accomplished.

As we have learned time and time again, when it comes to the media and the socialist-controlled public culture facts don’t matter.

The Clintons have painfully taught us on numerous occasions — perception is all. Libtards understand this, conservatives by and large still don’t. They are too busy trying to win a debate with the facts and rationality, failing to understand that the media will distort the debate, pluck emotional strings, spin it in the Democrats’ favor and that is all most people will ever see.

Myron Magnet Speaks the Truth

Myron Magnet is one of my favorite writers. He can often be read at the indispensable City Journal.

I can’t do any better than this takeaway from the recent election, Donald Trump and the Rejection of Progressivism. It begins with this and gets better: “One message to take away from Donald Trump’s presidential victory: Americans don’t want to be ruled.

Go read and enjoy. This week the future of this country suddenly became much brighter.

A Trump Gift

I just came from checking in on my Yahoo! Sports fantasy hockey team. Whenever you log out of your fantasy team you are dumped onto Yahoo!’s news page. It has for months done nothing more on the political front than run anti-Trump stories. I have yet to see a positive story or anything negative on Hillary Clinton.

That’s not an accident.

Sadly, this is typical of every major news outlet (with the exception of Fox News and it has been drifting leftward lately).

If nothing else, Donald Trump needs to be congratulated for wiping away any doubt (if there had remained) that the American news media is nothing more than a propaganda arm and disinformation agent for the Democratic Party.

I’ll not catalog their calumny beyond noting that if a Republican candidate had Hillary Clinton’s record of incompetence and criminality they’d have been destroyed long ago. Clinton makes Nixon and Harding look like choirboys. Her email server and the compromising of American secrets, American institutions and employees under her may be unmatched in history. The failure of the media to even do the basic in reporting is unforgivable.

So what to do?

I doubt the media will reform itself. Liberals do not hire conservatives or anyone that isn’t going to toe the line and swear fealty to gods of liberalism. And increasingly the corporate suites are packed with liberals — many now out of the closet and unafraid to use their companies as weapons of mass destruction against their American enemies and in servitude to international socialism.

One thing that can be done is to boycott what you can. After the hockey season I expect I’ll abandon Yahoo! completely. Does anyone know a good fantasy sports website? I have to admit that Yahoo! did fantasy sports well.

I make it a point to avoid linking to MSM (e.g. major networks, Washington Post, et al) stories in the blog. I encourage other bloggers to do the same. It’ll cut down on the click numbers for them.

Don’t buy their papers. I doubt sending letters to the editors mean anything any longer. I think they just dismiss the writers as racists, Nazis, bigots, etc.

Avoid the big TV networks and their programming.

As I’ve mentioned previously, I’m now boycotting the NFL, NBA and NCAA. I haven’t slipped yet and supposedly ratings for the NFL are down.

I’m learning and enjoying hockey and catching the last of the baseball season. I’m watching golf more and David Feherty is clearly a conservative but politics are basically left out of these sports and no one seems impelled to let the viewers know how hip, cool or progressive they are.

The liberal media corporations (and their sports allies) need to feel the consequences of their actions.

How Propaganda Is Masked as “News”

Despite an avalanche of damning Wikileaks releases chronicling the crimes and cynicism of Hillary Clinton and the Clinton campaign, the American news media, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Socialism International DBA the Democratic Party, chooses to focus monomaniacally on the petty foibles of Donald Trump.

Witness WTOP radio, the top news station in Washington, D.C. and America, Tuesday morning. Plenty of dirt on Hillary — news that her State Dept., in the form of flunkee Patrick Kennedy, pressured the FBI to change the classifications of some of the emails recovered from Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server. Kennedy even offered some horse trades to the FBI if they covered for Hillary. The FBI, to its credit, refused.

There was also news that Hillary’s security detail at State hated her and had unusually high turnover and that she refused their instructions, choosing to do her own thing and often putting the detail into awkward positions.

So, lots of great news material? Not for WTOP. Somewhere Donald Trump looked cross-eyed at someone and the public needs to know about it!

They then did a story about “Broadway” Bill Clinton. Barely audible, and sounding tired and weak, Clinton attacked Trump in front of a pack of uber-wealthy Hillary supporters. No cutting analysis was offered by the anchors.

Then there was NBC cutting Billy Bush loose. And just in case you didn’t know, Billy Bush was on a tape saying naughty things with Donald Trump!

This is WTOP’s news priorities. They do this diversionary dance basically everyday.

When finally confronting the new allegations, WTOP downplayed them as “Donald Trump claims.”

Ignoring the fact that the origin of the news was not Trump, this was amateur hour. To add to the insult, WTOP didn’t bother to have an actual reporter report the news but rather just read a few lines of copy and then accepted the Clinton campaign’s simple dismissal as nothing worth worrying about.

After a break their decent national security correspondent J.J. Green took on the story. You could tell his heart wasn’t in it as he outlined the new revelations and then summarized the State Dept.’s and the FBI’s spokesmen’s utterly lame denials. The State gentleman apparently told reporters that the accusations that Hillary’s security detail hated her, etc., weren’t actual transcriptions and probably had been “garbled.”

Now if this had been a Republican, this would have set off alarm bells, complete man-the-battle-stations claxons for every news organization. Whistleblowers used to be treated as oracles by Washington-based reporters but now, when it’s a Democrat, they might as well be a lonely wind out in the desert.

No wonder so many in Washington seem unaware of what went down with Clinton, WTOP isn’t reporting anything. (Note, Howard Dean and the searing Washington elite partisan cynicism he displays here is one of the things that is giving rise to Trump.)
