Media’s Use of ‘Mamet Principle’ Running on Autopilot…

Liberal turned conservative David Mamet famously said:

In order to continue advancing their illogical arguments modern liberals have to pretend not to know things

The current Mostly Swamp Media’s (MSM) approach toward espousing their narratives is highly dependent on media’s use of Mamet’s truism.  Consider:

elian-gonzalezExample #1 – The media argument against President Trump’s executive order -temporarily suspending visa approvals from seven countries of concern- drags out the customary injured parties of children and families etc….  While simultaneously avoiding the legal repatriation of Elian Gonzalez to Cuba which asserted the courts were powerless to stop President Clinton: “It is the duty of the Congress and of the executive branch to exercise political will,” and “in no context is the executive branch entitled to more deference than in the context of foreign affairs.” (link)

arizona-illegal-3Example #2 – The media spins a sad tale of Guadalupe García de Rayos being picked up last night for deportation by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)…. while simultaneously avoiding reporting on her prior felony arrest for identity theft, using a fake social security number, and a subsequent 2013 criminal deportation order which was unenforced under the previous administration. (link)  Yes, Mrs de Rayos was arrested for deportation as a priority “criminal illegal alien“.

jake-tapper-has-sadExample #3 – Oh how Jake Tapper clutched his pearls Tuesday and decried a “lie” from President Trump’s saying: “the U.S. murder rate is at a 47 year high…. While simultaneously overlooking accuracy within the statement: “the rate of increase for the U.S. murder rate is at a 47-year high.”   I guess it would have been too difficult to do a little one click research and discover Trump’s non-parsed statement was essentially accurate.

Example #4 – “Muslim Ban, Muslim Ban, Muslim Ban” – oh, the humanity, so sayeth the swamp guardians; despite there being no such thing as a Muslim Ban within the executive order etc… but don’t expect the same MSM constructionists to even think about reporting on the latest poll of Ten EU nations which show Europe writ large, does –in fact- bigly support a Muslim Immigration Ban.

In total 55% of Europeans agree Muslim immigration should be stopped, only 20% disagree.  Gotta’ apply a liberal dose of Mamet-level convenient ignorance all over that last part if the MSM want to continue selling the Bad President Trump narrative.

    God, I wish it were a Muslim ban. Should have been put into effect after 9/11.

      Yeah no kidding. I couldn’t believe that Bush not only didn’t close the doors after 9/11 but he opened up the floodgates! So infuriating. I don’t want them here whether or not they are violent – that is besides the point. They are colonizing us just like the colonized Lebanon when it was a beautiful peaceful prosperous country- the Paris of the Middle East. When there were enough of them the call to jihad was made and then the killing started and now we have the Lebanon of today – a total craphole. They are incompatible with our western civilized way of life. Period

        Islam is a predatory political ideology, not a religion. And, Islam is not about peace, but about violent submission. It is a political ideology perfectly tailored for a culture of inbred, low IQ, goat molesters.

      • islam, to which muslims devote themselves, is incompatible with human existence. Murder, rape, pedophilia, slavery, genocide, suicide, idolatry. Everyone and anyone who supports it supports those tenets and they are delusional and mentally ill.

        There are no moderate (liberal) or immoderate (extreme) positions in islam. It creates a cognitive dissonance that islamists don’t and can’t accept. For them islam is perfect and complete with no qualifiers. Turkish President Erdogan said, “These descriptions are very ugly, it is offensive and an insult to our religion. There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it.” Many islamic imams have said as much.

        Thus whatever they do is perfect and hence they can not see any of it as terrorism. It just doesn’t fit. The lies are fully accepted as truths based on the foundation that islam is all and perfect. Beheading, rape, murder is not, they believe, extreme it is just what islam requires and is allowed. islam will never and has never contributed anything to the human condition.

        For those who are not steeped in islam the cognitive dissonance is huge, so to solve it choices are made to give the most comfort to one’s selfishness. Ignore it, it has nothing to do with me, compromise with it (go along to get along, which takes many forms. I’ll wear a hijab, I won’t discuss it, I’ll go out of my way to be nice (open the door for them, let them be first in line, smile extra nice)), deny the truth of it (some either refuse or can not see and accept the horror of it), substitute some moral reason or personal value to deny it (It is wrong to be intolerant, surely there are some good people, I can be friends and help them, etc.)

        These are often deployed together, some simultaneously. Often it involves the action of projecting one’s own values and beliefs onto the the islamic adherent.

        The moral level of achievement attained in society other than islam, for care of other humans; medical, rescue (groups move heaven and earth to save one in crisis), law, rights, has risen above what the god of islam espouses in his quran. For creatures to rise above the moral capacity of a god simply shows he is not a god.

        People who support islam need to be called out. Women who support it need to be called out for the extreme misogyny that they support. Men for rape and murder they support.

        If you look at Miami and South Florida in the late 70’s and early 80’s you saw the test run for today’s issues. Look at what is happening through the prism of Narco dollars and who is getting rich.
        Those who make tons of cash off money laundering do not want the routes closed. In the 70’s and 80’s and 90’s it was Bush/Clinton. 2000,s it’s Bush/Clinton’s. We went from marijuana and cocaine routes to Heroin, Cocaine, Meth routes.
        The good guys begin to get a handle on it, the politicians change the routes. Thus if you close off the Middle East and European routes, the political class will have to cozy up to China for new routes. This is already happening. Look at the way the Chinese are laundering Heroin, Meth, and other synthetic drug money by the amount of purchasing of property and businesses on the west coast.
        I can go on about the Bush’s and the Mexicans after Pablo and crew got shut down in Columbia, but, you get the idea. The only war on drugs is at the local level.

          I’d like to say “true ’nuff,” but her husband is equally as liberal and far more dangerous due to the elected political position he holds. After I got kicked out of their liberal kingdom a couple of nights ago (by five text message over the course of three minutes) I shared with my husband and told him, “I’ve had it. Can’t deal with her mental illness any longer.” Suddenly the clouds parted and the sunlight brought a tremendous clearing of mind to me. The sudden revelation and relief was an amazing experience. It was a though I had been unshackled from the heavy chains binding my body, soul and spirit.

          Last night I received another text message containing a rather insipid apology to which I did not…and will not…reply. Liberals truly are strange people with twisted, corrupted minds, and they will cripple and crush your soul. Their hatred knows no bounds and (from my experience) they fully expect that anyone involved with them…for any reason…will hate what they hate and whom they hate. Being a rational, sane, logical-thinking person has no place in their upside-down, inside-out world. Grrr…

            Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

            And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

            And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

            Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

            And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. 2 Corinthians 6:14-18

          Years ago, my boyfriend (now husband) and I were cleaning out his family home and I noticed a tag sale, down the street, in pricey Wellesley, MA. The couple holding the yard sale were down-sizing and selling what looked like their wedding silver, which I wanted for my B&B. The wife was transparently shallow and kissed my feet because she assumed I was rich….. because I had a B&B (In fact, lots of toilets and laundry in my world).
          Well…,
          We came upon a poster which was done in wispy rainbow colors and described the virtues of an “artist”.
          My boyfriend’s ex-wife was such an artist and I started howling with laughter as I read out loud.
          1. Give away money to make people feel better. (just stab me in the heart why don’t you)
          2. Paperwork is for other people. Your job is to CREATE!
          3. Don’t worry about being late – life waits for you.
          4. Unplug from family and phones to perfect your creative process.
          5. Artists are the rare jewels of humanity.
          It went on and on with self-absorbed dribble, irresponsible personal finance, and an attitude which child protective services would consider “not ideal”.
          I suggested we buy the poster, take it home, and turn it into a dart board to help purge the boyfriend’s ex-wife from our relationship. Boyfriend LOVED the idea.
          Meanwhile, the wife was watching us and so was her husband. He was chuckling and she looked sick.
          …. and there it is.

          P.S. Yes, I love and admire artists. This is not a knock against artists but rather a knock against being irresponsible. We could survive without them but they certainly make our world more beautiful.

  4. All media has pretended that the lies told to the U.S. citizens to get ACA, Obamacare passed were innocent necessary lies. Many though have used the word fraud, quite apt, but avoided the major federal criminal code section on it which is 18 U.S. Code § 371 – Conspiracy to commit offense or to defraud United States

    It would surprise most that some nearly seven years after its March 23, 2010 signing, this major set of crimes is available for indictments of the many Democratic co-conspirators who perpetrated this fraud not in their safe area in their respective chambers, but in public in their home districts.

    There appears to be no statute of limitations problems as anyone familiar with conspiracy law might recognize.

      Yes. But we must face the fact while we sit here surrounded by traitors in Congress and countless big corporations outwardly screaming for slave labor ( while lying through their teeth about noble immigration ) and the Enemedia fully on board, the only permanent answer is an Amendment that restates the entire Immigration and Naturalization powers. The mistakes of allowing in Goths and Moors must be avoided but cannot while be traitors operate so brazenly.

      Birthright Citizenship is banned and the 14th Amendment is interpreted as it was explained by its author Senator Howard as applying to black American citizens after the Civil War.

      All Illegal Aliens found in the USA are banned for life from Naturalization and subject to immediate deportation and costs are billed to their native country. ( Permanent blacklist. They will run for the doors )

      All Legal Aliens must find a named sponsor, a person not an NGO, report to them weekly and the sponsor must report their whereabouts upon demand and assumes liability for financial debts and criminal actions. No Aliens may collect any taxpayer dollars or services under any circumstances.

      Hard cap on USA population ( specified in the Amendment, e.g., 300 million otherwise it will just get re-adjusted every Congress and President ), the cap is to be tied to the decadal census. If the census is above 300 million then moratorium is in effect, zero Immigration, period.

      Now where this gets really interesting is the backflow effect that follows. The census counts all heads including Illegal Aliens. Even with the influx, the exodus from liberal hellhole states like NY the loss is greater and has led to decreasing electoral districts each post-census re-apportionment. NY makes a madcap attempt to count Illegal Aliens every census to stem this loss, to no avail ( the internal population demographics shift to more Illegal over time ). What on Earth will they do when the moratorium chips away at the only increasing headcount: Illegal Aliens, who are running for the exit doors so they are not blacklisted? Well, they must make the State friendly again to citizens and job seekers or else.

      Let’s remember the real numbers …

      1980 … 226,545,805
      2016 … 324,227,000 (est)

And as they claim the baby boom ended and we are at flat or below population replacement levels, it means most or all are from the invasion. BTW: that +98 million matches the out of work force, hmmmm. So big business has accomplished a huge swindle. Swapping out 98 million American workers for 98 million Aliens and some unknown number of Americans. And they also outsourced along the way as well. The point is this, they are clamoring for something they already got, and they are padding their wallets at both ends of the equation. Our business sector is as evil as can be imagined.

      Other stuff would be addressed as well, particularly the Natural Born Citizenship clause of Article II Section 1 as explained by Madison when drafting the 1795 corrected Immigration and Naturalization Act, and hereafter is interpreted as requiring a USA born citizen to two citizen parents. That way there is no more ambiguity.

            Good point there. Exactly the kind of thing to include in an Amendment.

            English is hereby the official language, no taxpayer funds may be used to publish or respect the establishment of, or prohibit the free exercise of any other language ( something like that 😉

            All legal immigrants who become naturalized are required to pass a citizenship test, they must speak the official language, they must renounce all beliefs prohibited by this Constitution, its Amendments and statutory law or be subject to revocation and deportation.

          Well, its only a rough proposed Amendment and the White House doesn’t get a crack at it anyway. Amendments either originate in Congress and then go to the States for ratification, or, they originate from the People/States via an Article V “convention” ( not really, and never yet actually done ) and then to the States for ratification.

          Sometimes The White House is involved in cheer-leading an Amendment, and at least once we had Executive Orders that were the prototype as happened with Nixon and the 26th Amendment 18-year-old vote.

          Anyway, the Amendment is just a dream at this point, and I mentioned it as a permanent solution because an Amendment is the Constitution and takes everybody out of the loop once it is passed ( as long as the original intent is clear in the text, and that would need be carefully prepared to remove wiggle room for the Supremes ). Corrective Amendments like this will be necessary at some future date though, because we are no longer honorable as a society, well at least the players who inhabit the District of Criminals and their corporate sponsors.

          Parts of that Amendment may be proper for an executive order, but Constitutional attorneys would need to decide. The Congress of course is fully empowered to write Naturalization statutory law by the original Constitution, and the parts that involve it could be legislated. But good luck with the putzes we currently employ in Congress.

    Liberals operate within the psycho-dynamics of a Cult.
    The Dems are not a Party of citizens striving for good governance. They are grouping that seeks power or chaos, depending on whether they are in office or outside. And sometimes they use chaos and violence to control any competing grouping of citizens that challenges them.

    So, study the dynamics of Cults, and study the most parallel historical organization. The formation of the USSR, from the murder of the Romanovs, the internal fight by the Trotskyites, the Leninists who used force, war, assassination and hunger as weapons to foist Marxist economic theory on the Russian nation were the Liberals of yesterday, a hundred years ago.

    Then look closely with a clear mind, a cold stare and see the Liberals here and in Europe. What you may see is a direct parallel in process. And more, you will see Khazarians, an ideological group who power with money and energy the Liberal Cult.

    And then you will see how the destruction of our sovereign nation and our values is foremost in their short term goal, while their deep psychological mission is to reclaim Russia and the roots of their culture, Khazaria.

    It is all a whole. It isn’t about winning political power for a cycle or two. It is about a permanent state of global rule, centered in Khazaria, a feudal system with them atop, and all power in their hands.
    All wealth, all privilege, all force of rule from top down. A Khagan ruling a global Khaganate.

    If you know Mackinder’s ‘Heartland Theory’, you will understand what has transpired for a hundred years. 1917-2017.

    Also, Brzezinski”s, ‘The Grand Chessboard’, promotes the US-Khazarian strategy.

    It is a seamless whole. The destiny of the USA has been captured by Liberals. They intend to abort it. Trump represents a mortal threat to the Cult and their Ultimate goal.

    Russian Revolution, Destruction of Russia, rise of USSR, Liberalization of USA, early stage destruction of USA, collapse of USSR, crippling of Russia, crisis state of USA, containment of resurrected Russia, encroachment of NATO into East Europe and Baltics, USA degraded by war with Islam, then Ukraine. That has been the Timeline of events.

    The US cannot exist if the globalists are to rule. They won’t be ruling from Washington.
    That is not their ideological homeland. Their base is Khazaria.

    All that has stood in their way is Putin. And now Trump. They must destroy both.

    So the Liberals are much more than just what we see and think. They are the sappers who have snuck under the wires and have sabotaged America. They intend to bring it down. Destroy the Constitution, dissolve the democratic process, control all the economy, and break the spiritual values of our civilization.

    They did it to Russia one hundred years ago. Now, it’s America.

    At core, the commonality of both nations is Christianity. Both Russia and America are civilizations steeped in Christianity. Putin brought it back to Russia. Trump is bringing it back to America’s consciousness.

    Liberals will fight to their death for their Cult. And if America is seriously or mortally wounded, that’s all in their goal.

    Know the dynamics, understand the history.

      This is true. Germany, England, Switzerland and some more I forgot ( some Scandinavian country ) harbored and facilitated Lenin’s return to Moscow to take czarist Russia out of World War I.

      One could make a great case that Germany is not only the birthplace of Nazism, but the much longer lived and more destructive Socialism, having birthed Marx and Engels, and directly plotting the re-injection of Lenin himself. Leninism and the Stalinism is only believed to be dwarfed by Mao for total body count, but they absolutely take the cake for throwing most of the inhabited world into constant chaos and near nuclear annihilation.

      if I were Russian I would feel extremely angry toward Germany for infecting me with this cancer. But perhaps they take some satisfaction in seeing Germany commit suicide lately, first by welcoming in East German Stasi invaders, then by making one of them their Chancellor, then watching her welcome in the Moors invaders ( hey I just realized, Goths vs Moors, invader celebrity deathmatch! ), and all the while watching the irony of them eaten alive by the very Socialism they originally unleashed on Russia in the first place!

      Bull Durham, maybe you can comment on my theory here. I have no idea if Russia is developing a nationalistic streak ( but I sure hope they do ), that usually happens when the people start to feel successful and prosperous and national pride evolves. But I’ve been thinking lately that the anti-Russian bigotry and anti-Putin smear campaign that has thoroughly infected our government and the entire worldwide globalist cabal is actually a planned offensive. Its purpose? To abort in the womb any nationalistic pride to prevent a threat to Germany and all the rest, and to accomplish this they need to keep the people as poor slavic peasants ( “poor” by modern standards, similar to how most of the USA really is in a distilled two class society ). In short, keep the Ruskies down at all costs. ( I should add, they will try to abort this nationalistic pride in any country, and if they fail they will go crazy, just watch if Le Pen wins in France ).

      I’ve mentioned before that Star Trek famously used a thinly veiled metaphor of Federation-Klingon-Romulan for USA-USSR-China. I’ve been saying that we have got to stop treating Russia like Klingons unless we really want them to be Klingons. Well the actions of McCain, Graham, Brenner, Dumbo, and many more are surely coming scary close to mirroring the final chapter of original Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country, and the finale is when they bust in and save the President from being assassinated by a group of traitors who are fighting tooth and nail to preserve the cold war and prevent peace with the Klingons at all costs.

      So what do we have here? Art imitating life? or Life imitating art?

    According to State Senate Leader:DeLeon a good majority of the Illegals are guilty of Identity Thief, along with voter fraud.

Identity is a horrid crime costing people thousands upon thousands of dollars to get their good name back.
    True story–a friend of mine worked in the front office of a company. A guy came in with his application & SS card. She looked at the application & SS, then took a second look at the card.
    After the second look, she tore the card in 1/2 and put it in her drawer. She informed the guy he would never work there and she was reporting him, because it was her SS number on the card.

        This is truly proof of a sense of special group entitlement. Plain evidence in these cases that there isn’t a core commitment to being an American citizen, just using the system, because where’s the effort to get legal after all these years? Zip. Bet they kept up their home country legal documents to get what they need there when they want it.
        Too easy to play both sides of the border. But that incurs all sorts of costs that are foisted on legal citizens.

        Meanwhile millions of foreigners from other countries are trying to get legal and millions of Americans who go to other countries respect those countries’ laws and get the necessary pre-approvals, visas, work permits and residency permits. It’s not a fair system to allow special groups leeway that others don’t get. The only thing that’s truly fair is only when everyone plays by the same rules.

    According to Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos’ attorney, she is facing deportation as part of President Trump’s executive order focused on removing undocumented immigrants with a history of arrests.
    – Garcia de Rayos has been here since she was 14 (Now 36).
    – She has family and children in the United States.
    – Garcia de Rayos was arrested in 2009 for impersonation as part of a Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office raid.
    – She was charged with a felony, but her attorneys say that raid was later ruled unconstitutional.

    All of this stinks to high heaven.. I live in Mesa, Maricopa County – The above that I just read completely changed from the original story…

    BTW – if she had been arrested and charged w/ a felony and later it was dismissed – then it would be pubic record at through Maricopa Superior Court – and I can’t find her n the system -but then again she has like 4 names –

    Hold on – LIGHT BULB MOMENT – It should be but just to make sure – I live in Mesa, right down the street from the water park that is being thrown around – of course a raid would be done by MCSO – but Mesa does have a municipal court… Ill check but if it was a raid and felony – duh

      Update 11/11/14: Guadalupe’s case was finally closed! Thanks for all your support!
      Tell ICE: Stop Guadalupe’s Deportation!
      Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos has been fighting her deportation since she was arrested in one of Arpaio’s workplace raids in 2008. Despite the fact that many raid victims have been granted discretion by ICE, Guadalupe is still threatened with being separated from family five years after her arrest.
      Guadalupe was arrested by Arpaio for working in 2008 and was detained for 6 months, separated from her then-young children. She was released on bond, but her deportation case has remained pending for the last five years. Despite fighting her deportation case every way she can, Guadalupe and her family have had to deal with the constant stress and trauma of never knowing if they will be allowed to remain together. This is more than anyone should have to bear.
      Tell ICE to close Guadalupe’s deportation case once and for all so that she and her family can stay together.
      Working is not a crime!

      Was the raid in 2008 or 2009 — was she arrested at Golfland Water Park, during the raid – Or was she arrested at her home (some accounts) — did she spend 6 months in jail – first time here that. “Despite the fact that many raid victims have been granted discretion by ICE ” what does that mean?

    In fact, I am about to send him a letter and copy my two US Senators on it. It will be along these lines….

    Judge Gorsuch,

    I do not know if you are being accurately quoted or your sentiments accurately conveyed so my comments should be taken in that vein. However, there are millions of American people going back several decades who have not only been disheartened but disgusted at the behavior of the Federal judicial system at times. There has clearly been a pattern of overreach. As you know, at least I hope you know, the judicial system is a co-equal branch of government and judges on the federal bench should not be above the law.

    The chief executive of this country has every right to be upset and to vocalize those sentiments at the behavior of the Judge Robart. He is not a god and neither are you or your colleagues. If you are ‘disheartened’ over criticism of your peers, I suggest you look beyond emotion and listen to the president. I can assure you he speaks for millions of frustrated US citizens who see the Federal court system as out of control. Judges stepping into the legislative arena dishearten all of us. Please show empathy and deference to the voices of the American people and the law as opposed to some sort of established sacred aura surrounding the judicial system.

    The federal judicial system owns its reputation and, unfortunately, that reputation has been deteriorating throughout the years. This deterioration, at least according to polling data, accelerated after the Chief Justice’s confused ruling regarding the Affordable Care Act. A simple read of that ruling reveals tortuous logic that even non-lawyers like me can see through. That is disheartening.

    So, let me say that as a taxpaying citizen of the United States, I want to respect the Federal Judicial system. However, it is up to the judicial system to earn and keep that respect.

    I will watch your confirmation hearings very closely. I want to see a firm commitment to the rule of law and the US Constitution. I also want to see a commitment to the letter of the Constitution over and above precedent.

    Thank you

    #3. That’s actually a complaint I have. Sometimes he’s not quite careful enough with terminology. During the campaign, Most-Emphatically-Our-President Trump would complain of GDP being at 1.2 percent (or some number close to that) when what he really meant was GDP growth. (GPD should be expressed as a dollar amount. And that’s why it didn’t matter much back then: “GDP is at 1.2 percent” is clearly a wrong statement, but people pretty instantly figure “He meant GDP growth rate” and move on.) Here he apparently did a similar thing, confusing the growth in the crime rate with the crime rate itself. That one is a bit harder for a listener to untangle and say, “Oh, right, I see what you’re trying to say” because both numbers are rates one the crime rate and the other the rate of growth in the crime rate. So the brain doesn’t quickly realize he meant something a bit different from what was literally said.

    Trump has wonderful things to say, and IMHO if one has wonderful things to say a little more precision (to avoid honest confusion) can be a positive good.

    A minor, very minor gripe. If that’s the worst gripe I can come up with, we’re in damn good shape.

    The first immigration exec. order is only one example of how one can never satisfy the left. During the primaries, then candidate Trump spoke in terms of a temporary ban on muslim immigrants until we could get a handle on things. Then he decided instead to simply concentrate upon countries where the worst problems exist. Those countries apparently house about 15% of the muslims in the world. Now, was the left appeased by this more generous approach? Of course not. The press continued to lie and characterize the ban as a ban on all muslim immigration. (I wish it was). Further, they fail to mention that this represents a tempered and much more nuanced policy than that originally contemplated. So, compromising gets you absolutely zip when the left is concerned.

    The Dems are working overtime. They have referred Trump’s tweet about Nordstom’s to the Government Ethics Office.

    Charlie Gasbag at Fox Business has reported that marketing and PR firms have started up departments to deal with fast track response teams to President Trump’s tweets. He is also pearl clutching about whether Trump is intentionally attempting to move markets.

    I guess Charlie doesn’t remember Obummer telling people not to go to Vegas…that’s a lot of ‘markets’.

      He and the red headed woman on FBN…discussing Ivanka, Nordstroms, President Trump and Kelleyanne.
      Red headed woman said she bought an Ivanka coat at some outlet store…that had racks and racks of her clothes at discounted prices. The horror!
      Charlie asked if she liked the coat.
      She muttered a bit that she liked the color or some such nonsense and then went back to Kelleyanne’s comments and President Trump’s tweet and who did or didn’t break the law.
      Blah blah blah.
      The entire world is going straight to hell and they want to devote air time to this issue and doing their best (which is questionable admittedly) to find fault with somebody….SURELY the President or KA broke the law!
      I know…don’t watch them.
      Just wanted to add this excellent example of Mamet’s theory.
      Please, please, please Mr. Sessions…drain the sewer at the DOJ.

          Kelly Ann needed not to be the spokesperson for Ivanka’s business that is not her job when she represents the President and is his spokesperson.
          I wish POTUS had not said anything either we we now see how hard it is for him to be neutral when it comes to family business even though it was not his but still is in the family.
          I am wondering what will happen when they go after his businesses and he speaks out about it. Impeachment is what the ethical committee is waiting for.
          Trump needs an lawyer dealing with ethics who is in the WH to keep track of these things and get ahead of it before someone speak publicly or even privately about it.
          POTUS now is not only his daughters father but what he says will affect more than him or Ivanka. I feel for them but it’s a hard job.

            Trump’s tweet was fine. It was KAC’s that went over the line, and fromSean Spicer by this afternoon at 2, she had been counciled about endorsements. Fixed.

      When I read POYUS Tweet about Ivana’s businessI cringed. I wish he had not done that .
      The Tweeting is going to get him in trouble ethically.

    Liberal turned conservative

    Not sure who said it first, but I first heard it from Pat Buchanan – “A Conservative is a Liberal who finally grew up”.

    David Mamet reportedly said, as Sundance often reminds us, that “in order to continue advancing their illogical arguments, modern liberals have to pretend not to know things.”

    Having “to pretend not to know things” is, plain and simple, lying.

    The Main Sewer Media know exactly what they are doing . . . being duplicitous . . . obfuscating . . . being evasive.

    What David Mamet has said here also is being duplicitous, obfuscating, and evasive.

      Yes and it is not just the media. I’m a retired aerospace engineer and every Friday have lunch with current and retired employees (all engineers) that are friends. There are a couple of moderate liberals in the bunch, and they often contribute the “wisdom” of NPR and CNN. When this wisdom is fiction (often), we bluntly confront them with the facts (one of the nice things about an all men group is you don’t have to sugar coat anything to avoid hurt feelings)

      The response is always “Oh, I don’t know anything about that”. But they never make an attempt to educate themselves or occasionally listen to media that isn’t lying to them. They want to remain ignorant if it reinforces their political feelings (I won’t dignify them as having political thoughts).

      BTW women are definitely not excluded from this weekly event, it is just that in this field, there were no women engineers in our age group (the organization now has several, but are all young).

    Time for Christians and secular westerners to start having babies – lots of babies! If Trump is successful in bringing about the economic revival that we all believe he can, then we are going to need lots of intelligent, well educated AMERICANS to take those jobs. We need the next Einstein, Galileo, Pascal, Da Vinci and more. We need to cultivate philosophers, scientists, poets, artists, sculptors, composers, architects, engineers, authors and statesmen!!!

    The hysterical ideas pushed by the left in the 70’s convinced people of my generation that “humans are destroying the planet!” and that there won’t be enough resources to feed everyone – the latter against the backdrop of starving children in Africa. Little did we know they were starving because their governments were corrupt and stupid.

    Now our own government tells us that we need to import people because we are not having enough children, never mind the fact that our government pays to help kill the unborn…you can’t make this stuff up.

    I have long said that we don’t need to legislate per se less abortion, we simply need to create an environment where having children is promoted. One way we can do this is by catching young girls at the right age and get them interested in real babies – it is after all a natural instinct. As they become young women with experiences loving on sweet babies, they would think very hard before using the option of abortion.

    I am past my child bearing years but sometimes I feel I was robbed of some ways because I thought I was doing my part to save humanity…now I see the severe folly in the good people not procreating while barbarians breed like rabbits.
