    The press versus the president: Editor's Note Looking back on the coverage of Trump https://www.cjr.org/special_report/trumped-up-press-versus-president-ed-note.php Kyle Pope (30 January 2023) Seven and a half years ago, journalism began a tortured dance with Donald Trump, the man who would be the country’s forty-fifth president—first dismissing him, then embracing him as a source of ratings and clicks, then going all in on efforts to catalogue Trump as a threat to the country (also a great source of ratings and clicks). No narrative did more to shape Trump’s relations with the press than Russiagate. The story, which included the Steele dossier and the Mueller report among other totemic moments, resulted in Pulitzer Prizes as well as embarrassing retractions and damaged careers. For Trump, the press’s pursuit of the Russia story convinced him that any sort of normal relationship with the press was impossible. For the past year and a half, CJR has been examining the American media’s coverage of Trump and Russia in granular detail, and what it means as the country enters a new political cycle. Investigative reporter Jeff Gerth interviewed dozens of people at the center of the story—editors and reporters, Trump himself, and others in his orbit.

    All of that can be subsumed in my reference to their desire for more "power" and "control". It would not be enough for them merely to want the destruction of which you speak. They would also have to possess the ability to actually implement it - and by the means I noted, unchecked mass immigration would help provide them with (or bring them closer to) the degree of power and control necessary to achieve it. But as far as the particular point I was trying to make is concerned, it doesn't really matter what their ultimate aim might be. Even in the absence of such a goal as you describe, that point would remain: it doesn't really matter what the immigrants themselves actually want or believe, or what policies they would or would not support. Their mere presence in such large numbers, all by itself, will be (and is) used to justify and excuse the desired policies (regardless of what the ultimate goal of those policies may be). So long as significantly large numbers of immigrants are arriving here as a result of artificially political (rather than organically economic ) factors, it doesn't matter how decent or hard-working (or "libertarian", or whatever) some of those immigrants might be. Collectively and en masse, they are still just pawns and cat's-paws being used to empower a coalition of particular political factions to the detriment of liberty. An example of significantly large but organically "economic" immigration is the massive influx of Scots-Irish migrants into America in the 1800s. While this did have important political and cultural consequences (as any such large influx is apt to do), this was not the result of an intentional attempt to foster or engineer particular political outcomes (though it was certainly exploited "after the fact", so to speak, by politicians as best they could - because of course it was). The same can rarely (if at all) be said of today's (deliberate inculcation of) mass immigration. (As with so many other issues, the feds should never, ever have been permitted to have anything to say or do about it - and we are now living with the consequences of that failure.)

    Probably not - not yet, anyway. But if things are ever going to get to that point, then stages like this will have to be gone through first. They have to learn to say "no" before they can be expected to say "hell, no! FAFO".

    They can't stop what? All in-migration? I suppose they can't. But they can stop enticing, encouraging, and engineering these massive inorganic influxes we're seeing. They can do that, but they won't - because they know those influxes work to their political advantage. After all, that's exactly why they're enticing, encouraging, and engineering those influxes in the first place. Democrats in particular and leftists in general do not support so-called "open borders" immigration policies because they believe in the so-called "freedom to travel", or in the organic and economically natural "free flow of labor", or in any such things. They support it because it gives them more opportunities to gain more power. And this is true entirely regardless of what the political sensibilities of the immigrants themselves might be. The mere presence of such inordinate numbers is exploited as a justification for more government action and control (in the form of more spending programs, for just one of the more obvious examples), which in turn gives them yet more power and control over other sectors (such as health care, education, etc.).

    But I won't let scum Bolsheviks ruin my fun. I've been to Darlington twice and had a great time. I watched just about all that video, skimming in a couple places. Things I noticed. - David Pearson smoking in the car. - The pit crew looked like the guy who used to pump your gas at the filling station. Short sleeved shirts, no helmets, and a pocket rag. - The Rebel flag was everywhere. I think it was even painted on the wall.

    What happened? Two words: Cultural Marxism. Cultural Marxism Is the Main Source of Modern Confusion—and It's Spreading While Marxism has largely disappeared from the workers' movement, Marxist theory flourishes today in cultural institutions, in the academic world, and in the mass media. Excerpt: This “cultural Marxism” goes back to Antonio Gramsci (1891-1937) and the Frankfurt School. The theorists of Marxism recognized that the proletariat would not play the expected historical role as a “revolutionary subject.” Therefore, for the revolution to happen, the movement had to depend on the cultural leaders to destroy the existing, mainly Christian, culture and morality and then drive the disoriented masses to Communism as their new creed. The goal of this movement is to establish a world government in which the Marxist intellectuals have the final say. In this sense, the cultural Marxists are the continuation of what started with the Russian revolution.

    https://twitter.com/CNN/status/1620044910689648641 1620044910689648641 "What is the right age for a child to start using social media? I worry that right now, if you look at the guidelines from the platforms, that age 13 is when kids are technically allowed to use social media, but there are two concerns I have about that. One is, I personally, based on the data I've seen, believe that 13 is too early, and I think that it's a time, you know, early adolescence, where kids are developing their identity, their sense of self. It's a time where it's really important for us to be thoughtful about what's going into what they think about their own self-worth and their relationships, and this skewed and often distorted environment of social media often does a disservice to many of those children " -- U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy Interesting ... Now do puberty blockers, hormone replacement, and chopping off breasts/penises, Dr. Murthy. I double-dog dare you.

    Well its been EIGHT YEARS since the post that I quoted. Does anyone now believe that information harvested by all these data mining companies will not be used to control every aspect of your life? Mention COVID Vaccines on Facebook and get BANNED. Doesnt stop there. Big dings in your NOW ACTIVE SOCIAL CREDIT SCORES. Thus, you tell the truth, and your loans are denied. Applications are denied. Public transport is denied. College denied. Jobs denied. Access to YOUR OWN FUCKING MONEY DENIED (Canada). Buy FOOD DENIED. They WANT permission to LEAVE YOUR HOUSE (which is what COVID lockdowns were all about) to DENY that too! Or even BREATHE! YOU ARE THE CARBON THEY WANT TO ELIMINATE.

    Well, now its just to provoke WWIII so Biden can make his Kill Quota. Putin flat out said that if the US sends DEPLETED URANIUM (still highly radioactive despite what all the so called "scientists" say, and Putin KNOWS this) that he will consider that a radiological attack and will seriously consider the use of NUCLEAR WEAPONS. Stupid thing is that these idiots are TRYING TO PROVOKE RUSSIA. So whats left, if the fallout doesnt kill you then COVID will. If COVID doesnt kill you, starvation will. If starvation does not kill you, then you will freeze to death. If you dont freeze to death, the CRIME will. If CRIME doesnt kill you, then AI will. They arent just poking the bear, they are cattle prodding the bears testicles with the intent of making it as mad as possible.
