Two quotes from Kanye West

Two quotes from Kanye West:

  1. N#@$&! is monsters  / N#@$&! i is pimps / n#@$&! is players / Til n#@$&! have daughters / N#@$&! is pimps / n#@$&! is players /‘Til n#@$&! have daughters
  2. I think it’s bravery that helps you beat this game called life. You know they tried to scare me to not wear this hat. My own friends. But this hat gives me a different power in a way. You know my dad and my mom separated, so I didn’t have a lot of male energy in my home. And also I’m married to a family that, you know, not a lot of male energy going on.

For one of these, he’s considered a poet.  For the other, a crazy person who can’t read.  Guess which goes with which.

Iconic images ain’t what they used to be

On the Moon lr 9-4-18

Hollywood has removed the iconic image of the American flag being planted on the moon in the upcoming movie First Man.   At some point, you’d think it’d be more about entertainment than political messaging.  For many, instead of seeing the movie they’ll be taking a knee.

So for those in the make-believe movie producing business who want to send a message along with playing dress-up, we have a few other iconic scenes you can consider omitting when you get around to portraying certain events on the big screen.

–  The life of a certain bus driver… without Rosa Parks.
–  Iwo Jima raising… without the flag pole.
–  Nixon resignation… without him getting on the helo.
–  Sacagawea biopic… without Lewis and Clark.
–  Iran hostages released… without Reagan.
–  John Madden biopic… without a turducken.
–  Famous balconies in Memphis… without MLK aides pointing across the parking lot.
–  Barrack Obama’s presidency… without his muscle (Michelle).
–  Reagan’s presidency… without the Berlin Wall.
–  McCain’s funeral… without an ending.
–  Invention of the telephone… without Watson.
–  Invention if the internet… without Al Gore.

New York Times, CYA outsourcing for the Vatican

Posted on Updated on

We noted previously how trust in the Catholic Church may beginning to crumble. Thanks to Twitchy for pointing out the New York Times’ effort to shift blame and also for finding other Times’ coverage of the pope (as in CYA coverage) was amped up to 11.

Here’s the first headline where the Times somehow figured out how to throw conservatives under the bus while covering for the Vatican.

Nothing to see here except those darn Republicans trying to make a mountain out of a mountain.

Then along comes another article just to make sure we weren’t distracted by the blinding light of priests by the hundreds allegedly sexually assaulting boys.

Wow, just wow!  Hide the women and children because…. conservatives are being critical of pedophilia.

Not to be outdone, Reuters decided they needed to get in to the act of defending the indefensible with this gem of a headline.

Along these same lines we thought we’d revisit moments in history and the headlines that likely appeared in the NYT’s back then.

The Hindenburg Forced to use Hydrogen

Democrats Burn a Few Crosses
While Republicans Wage War on Segregation

Gun Owners Cause Increased Deaths 
During Undocumented Home Invasions

Democrats Insist on Unlimited Abortion Freedoms
While Republicans' Only Message is "Family Values"

MLK to Wait Outside Hotel Room

Lack of Conservatives Willing to Fight Back
on Three of the Four 9/11 Planes

Media collaborates to show Trump how much they don’t collaborate… or something like that

Coordinated lr

First there’s no doubt in our mind that Trump hates bad news, that he thinks it’s a direct reflection on him and will say and tweet what he feels is necessary to discredit the offending media source.  Some would say he down right lies, others that it’s hyperbole.  But many also recognize that the media have been using their position as the fourth estate (a lost concept, by the way, over the previous eight years) to twist and turn stories that any unbiased person would recognize as clear bias.

Early on in the Trump administration an obvious example of bias was seen.  How early?  Trump’s first day.  He was being observed by the media while getting organized in the oval office. One media rep from the press pool noted that the MLK bust was gone and notified the other reporters (btw, a press pool member provides insights for other press members since the oval office has limited space).  Later though the reporter had to walk the claim back because the bust was actually there.  So instead of reporting on an historic day, the reporter desperately jumped on the first indiscretion he could … imagine.  But gee, we can understand how difficult it would have been to verify his reporting.  Do you know how much work it would have been to look around the whole oval office?!

And it continues today.  You can’t read the front page of a major newspaper and not see as many adjectives and adverbs as there are coming out of a night school creative writing course.  Whatever happened to who, what, where, and when?  Now instead of the four W’s we get the four B’s: bias, bloviate, bluster, and bellow.

Community outreach Hamas style

Day of Rage lr

Aren’t the media something.  They’ve had quite a week.  Only they could boost Hamas, MS-13 and Stormy onto a pedestal over such a short period of time.

Even Planned Parenthood got into the act admonishing Trump for his animals comment.  “This moment calls for the President to do serious self-reflection” said Cecile Richards, former president of Planned Parenthood.   I do believe Ms Richards should sit this one out.  After all, it takes a rather callous soul to not consider a little self-reflection after performing over 300,000 abortions each year.  That’s millions over the many years it’s been in existence.  Mao would be proud.  They’ve likely surpassed the number of people he killed.
