    The Making of a Presstitute

    From a young age, I wanted to write,
    Or, perhaps, I wanted to be read,
    Because it was most important
    For people to listen to what I said.

    I dreamed of sitting at a small table,
    Wearing a sweater and a beret,
    Drinking very strong cups of coffee,
    In autumn, outside a French café.

    I went off to Journo school
    And learned my lessons very well.
    My pen was mightier than a sword;
    And my opinions were infallible.

    In my first year, in Press 101,
    I learned to craft a plausible lie,
    With just a sprinkling of truth,
    To catch a gullible reader’s eye.

    I never studied science or math,
    Facts and logic just get in the way.
    When I had my agenda clear,
    Then I could make up what to say.

    All of my profs were Democrats;
    Their politics were very liberal.
    If I wanted to pass their course,
    I made very sure mine were as well.

    As the years went slowly by,
    I came to see that they were right.
    It’s all because of conservatives
    That this world is in such a plight.

    When I finally found a job,
    My school experience served me well.
    I would cater to their agenda,
    And make up stories that would sell.

    I’ve been reporting for many years;
    Praising Obama has worked well for me.
    Whatever he does is right for the world,
    And all I write is complementary.

    I’m a lead writer, at the top of my craft;
    I’m the writer that they all look for.
    I’m the very best, a total success –
    A member of the White House Press Corps.

    For several years now, at the press briefs,
    With my prestige, I sit right up front.
    I get first questions, follow-ups, too.
    To do any less would be an affront.

    I’ve now found a new way to succeed:
    The editors love my stories on Trump.
    It doesn’t matter what really happened,
    I’ll make him look like a bumbling chump.

    Some of the very best quotes, I found,
    I can rewrite, different than told.
    Then, when taken out of context,
    I’ll get my headline, above the fold.

    Problems are developing at press briefs;
    I don’t get first questions, and have to wait, too.
    We now compete with questions on Skype,
    And internet bloggers ask a few.

    I may not get any questions at all,
    Before Spicer stops and leaves the room.
    I’m angry that he can look so pleased,
    In spite of our constant doom and gloom.

    I hold my questions; look for my chance.
    I seek his attention. I raise my hand.
    His glance brushes past, over and beyond.
    We cannot shout out, or even stand.

    Alas! I’m lost. My prestige is gone.
    I’ve lost my voice, my questions are mute.
    Forlorn I sit, all lost in the crowd,
    Faceless, nameless, another Presstitute.

      Maybe someone with a Twitter account could ask –

      During 2015 and 2016 we read of many departments (Post Office, Forestry, etc.) getting millions and millions of rounds of ammo. Now the Border Patrol is short on ammo.

      Why is the Border Patrol short of ammo? Where is the ammo that went to P.O. and Forestry (and more)? Can it be transferrerd to the Border Patrol?

        My friends and I have been asking this question for 2 years now.

        Why would the Dept. Of Education, or Dept. Of Health and Human Services, or many other departments periodically buy large amounts of ammo? Usually in the amounts of 250,000 rounds of various calibers.

        My friends and I thought the Gov. Was trying to depleate the supplies to citizens, then we thought they were stocking up for martial law as well as cancelling the 2016 elections and Obama remain in office. We thought of many devious scenarios.

        Fact still remains…the ammo is MIA…no one seems concerned, no one seemingly knows where it is and into whose hands it was delivered.

      • Ken Lawson says:

        And it’s also important to remember that the ammo that the feds purchased for all these different departments were armor piercing rounds that are not legal for the military to use in warfare. These would only be used domestically and it seems that they were intended to use against citizens. The Trump administration needs to strip all non law enforcement and military branches of government of this ammo and their weaponry.

    To those who are working and think their co-workers are tuning out the press, the average Americans still does not get that the press has a bias and that President Trump is a good leader who wants the best for our nation. To those who have some influence because of their positions at their offices, please start spreading good stories about President Trump, Jeff Sessions, etc. because some Americans DO still think he is out of his element and wants to be a dictator.

    I know, these people were silent during President Obama’s administration. I don’t understand how these people think, either. I just know that we still need to counter the negative stories and get good information to Americans who still don’t understand what happened.

      Lots on the Internet that al-Baghdadi is Shimon Elliot, a Jew, a CIA-Mossad project to lead ISIS.

      Hard to know for certain. The fact that ISIS from the start had a Media plan, Internet resources and deep pockets, and were not attacked by CIA or Israel, nor did ISIS or al Nusra ever attack Israel leads credence to the idea.

    If there was anything illegal in those returns, they would have gotten them and published them around convention time, to cause maximum chaos.

    What they WILL do is take line items and create snark and mockery around them.

    “Oh, loook, he didn’t earn as much as he said he did!”

    “Oh, look, he didn’t give very much to charity!”

    Etc. etc.

    Furthermore, they don’t understand anything about things like depreciation, carried interest, capital gains, etc.

One has to wonder why no one else is saying anything about the pedophilia. I find it odd nothing is ever said about it during press briefings, no questions and no mention of the 1,500 busts of low level offenders; but an inordinate amount of time is spent on the fake news of Russia Russia Russia.

    To publish unauthorized tax returns is a felony, punishable by up to 5 years in prison (see section 3 in link).

    The White House released the tax returns tonight, prior to Maddow’s show, stealing her thunder. Also, they are from 2005.

    Tomorrow Spicer can say President Trump did Maddow a favor, saving her from prison.
