A memorable statement from the movie Forrest Gump is ‘Stupid is as stupid does.’ He may have “looked” stupid, but he did his best not to act that way. A stupid person does not realize what they are doing is stupid. So don’t most of the establishment media owners, management and their reporters who have been ‘liberalized’ at the great universities who lockstep follow the liberal way like good little minions.
‘Lame Stream Media’ (as Ann Coulter called them on Hannity recently) and most of their affiliated local comrades are stupid or unpatriotic Americans when they support the utter stupidity and insanity of not just liberals but the socialist, Marxists crazies of the far left with little pretense for questioning nor hardly any semblance of investigative reporting.
How can this be determined? Let’s see. Since the United States is a nation of laws based on our Constitution in a capitalist system that’s generated more success and wealth than any country in the history of earth making it the model and envy of the world, and these sorry media elitists unabashedly and continually do all they can to injure and affect negative change to traditional America should they be considered patriotic Americans? No! They are either unpatriotic Americans or they are stupid is the only answer there can be. Stupid is as stupid does.
Did these people only study wordsmithing in school and no math? It must be outside their comprehension that the landslide of great sounding socialist programs of the last several decades are paid for only from the tax troughs of our tax paying commerce driving businesses and their tax paying employees as well as the taxes paid from the horrendous numbers of new and existing government employees whose salaries happen to be likened to beneficiaries of those very taxes. Supportive big media has constantly promoted big government expansion that has confiscated an on-going greater share of our national productivity. For instance, the current non-sense pushing a $15 minimum wage increase will further erode both our freedom and opportunities. The first objective of all businesses is to make a profit that will sustain and hopefully grow the enterprise. It has been said that businesses don’t pay taxes since a balance sheet dictates that taxes are just another cost that has to be factored in like all others. So either prices or something else needs adjusting such as reducing staff in order to remain in business and viable in the market. There’s a word these socialist elitists run from. Accountability …the missing word in the socialists’ mantra. Common sense doesn’t seem to exist in these liberal minds.
America’s commerce is drowning in too many laws, overregulation, taxation, unfair trade practices, and programs that are choking the life out of once flourishing small businesses. I want to say ‘Where is the responsible investigative reporting that should be outing the waste, corruption, scandals and secrecy in our government that is now operating like the secretive Cosa Nostra? But that would be like slighting the Cosa Nostra who at least live by a code of honor and consequences.
ORIGINS OF THE MEDIA ELITE AND A CONFESSION
Control over the media has been a long-term objective of the globalist elite. In 1917 JP Morgan Banking interests and their allies got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and had them select 25 of the greatest newspapers from a select list of 179 papers they studied.
As William Norman Grigg stated in his article ‘Behind the Bias’ in 2003 in The New American magazine, “The 25 papers were agreed upon; emissaries were sent to purchase the policy, national and international of these papers; an agreement was reached; the policy of the papers were bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information…[on matters] considered vital to the interests of the purchasers.
“The late Georgetown University historian Carroll Quigley stated that the Morgan interests figured prominently in the ‘international Anglophile network’ as the spine of the global power elite. In his 1966 work Tragedy and Hope – after writing disdainfully of ‘conspiracy theorists’ – admitted the existence of a partially submerged elite that ‘operates, to some extent, in the way the radical Right believes the Communists act. In fact, this network which we may identify as the Round Table Groups, has no aversion to cooperating with the Communists, or any other groups, and frequently does so. I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960’s to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and many of its instruments.’ The network’s ‘aim’ Quigley continued, is ‘nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole.'”
HAVING IT THEIR WAY FOR HILLARY
How derelict in responsible reporting, absence in reporting or guilty of tainting facts can these ‘extremely liberal’ news organizations get? As L. Brent Bozell, III states in his book ‘Weapons of Mass Distortion,’ “The fawning media acted as publicity agents for Hillary Clinton in 1999 when she announced her candidacy for the U.S. Senate, there was an almost perverse element to it all.
“Mrs. Clinton’s record didn’t matter to the media. They didn’t care that Hillary Clinton had been the architect of a failed national healthcare proposal. That it was Hillary who had invented the ‘vast right-wing conspiracy.’ That it was Hillary, not Bill, who had been the White House Stonewaller-in-Chief. That it was Hillary’s Rose Law Firm that couldn’t find and reportedly destroyed key documents. That it was in Hillary’s own bedroom in the White House, no less, where other Rose Law Firm billing records mysteriously reappeared. That it was Hillary who had been the force behind firing the White House Travel Office staff, or that the charges of fraud used to justify the firing were so dishonest that a jury needed a whopping two hours to acquit Travel Office chief Billy Dale. That it was Hillary who had given one fanciful explanation after another about how she came to make $100,000 from a $1,000 investment in the commodities market. That it was Hillary who had hired Craig Livingstone, the former bar bouncer who collected hundreds of raw FBI files on the Clintons’ political opponents. That it was Hillary, supposedly a feminist leader, who had first denied the charges of adultery against her husband and then when the truth could no longer be denied, refused to acknowledge the seriousness of what he had done.
“The record established Hillary Clinton as a liar and a relentless character assassin. But the media were not going to question Hillary about any of these things, and just as important, they were going to challenge anyone who had the audacity to do so. …The mainstream media would be too busy praising Mrs. Clinton to bother investigating not-fully-explored scandals that they considered ‘old news.'”
Now Hillary’s problems with Benghazi, the Benghazi cover-up, classified email/servergate and the millions of dollars she and Bill reaped from his ‘coincidental’ on-going speaking engagements with contacts in countries Hillary was calling on as Secretary of State are all begging for investigative reporting from big media and all we are hearing is crickets.
These folks just don’t get it. Socialism always fails. There is just not enough of other people’s money to support their endless falderal. Once again, there has never been a successful nation of socialism and our capitalist system in a nation of laws outlined in the U.S. Constitution has made us the greatest nation on earth in the history of mankind. And these cretins are fulltime hell-bent to ruin it.
I detest the words New York Times (NYT), cannot tolerate the politics of NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, CNBC, MSNBC or the C-SPANS except for sporting events some of them air. Other affiliated networks they own such as Disney, The History Channel, National Geographic, Discovery, MTV and The Weather Channel are also full of liberal and socialist propaganda on the green message, global climate change, morality and especially ‘factual’ history.
Some believe that the media abuses to the conservative movement are just examples of incompetency or an amoral attitude. As in most endeavors, possibly some. But for the most part, these are driven leftists who really believe that fundamentalist conservatives are all the way from wrong to evil and crazy and that our Constitution is outdated and should be thought of as a living breathing instrument that should adapt to changing times (socialism).
As Bernard Goldberg states in his book ‘Arrogance,’ “These are people who operate by a double standard that gives even double standards a bad name! No matter how they cast it or try to dodge the issue, to most in the big-time media, a liberal is, by definition, a good guy, someone who is decent and compassionate. A conservative, on the other hand, by definition is a selfish, mean-spirited moral slug.”
They also believe that New York City is the heartbeat of America and that the New York Times is the high church of our national news gathering since so many dependent, unquestioning, ‘clinger,’ large newspapers, television and radio stations across our nation wouldn’t know what to report without their NYT ‘lead’ infusion.
A last quote from William Norman Grigg, “Instead of investigating and exposing the actions of the power elite, the major media are complicit in that elite’s drive for total control.”
And I call that being very unpatriotic or being very stupid.
