Lame Journalist Cries Over Trump

https://www.mediaite.com/columnists/factsfirst-cnns-don-lemon-reads-letter-to-trump-then-weeps-on-air/

Just hours after CNN self-importantly and sanctimoniously claimed they’d be the network of “Facts First” one of the 3rd place news outlet’s anchors took to the air and read a letter he’d written to President Donald Trump and Gold Star Widow Myeshia Johnson. He then broke down in tears overcome by the emotional power of his own words.

LOL, what an outrageous pussy. Have you EVER gotten more entertainment for your dollar, than the money you spent on gas to drive to the polls to vote for Trump last year? No. No you haven’t.

Hillary’s Deal with Russia: Uranium One

In case you just got back from a trip to the Large Magellanic Cloud, Hillary! is now implicated in at least two scandals involving Russia.

One is that a Democratic organization involved in her campaign paid for the ridiculous Russian pee-pee “dossier” on Trump. And this was facilitated by Obama’s FBI.

The other is, as Secretary of State, selling a fifth of the US supply of uranium to this unfriendly foreign power. She should be put on trial for this, and if found guilty, executed for treason.

Vox Day’s Third Law of SJWs is SJWs Always Project. Leftists yelling “Trump colluded with Russia!” is a perfect example.

Julian Assange investigated both presidential candidates. Found no Trump corruption involving Russia. But Clinton has such: https://twitter.com/kwilli1046/status/907733771901947904

From the “This is my surprised face” files: The fake dossier was originally started by a cuck before being handed off to the Democrat machine:

UPDATE to the above:
This guy http://dailycaller.com/2017/10/28/finally-a-definitive-timeline-showing-when-clinton-dnc-started-the-russian-dossier/ says,

“Some outlets have incorrectly reported that Republicans began financing the [fake Trump] dossier before the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee took over last Spring.
But that is incorrect. Democrats are solely responsible for the dossier, which was passed around by their research firm, Fusion GPS, to Beltway reporters and select lawmakers during the heat of the presidential campaign.”

For a laugh:

Wow, interesting! I recently typed uranium; into Google, and uranium one was actually the first auto-fill to come up! In fact, you don’t even have to finish the word uranium; it comes up at ura! Holy shit, this story grew so fast it caught the SJW censors at Google napping!

Ha ha, sweet! Eat shit, assholes!

Media note: My local paper (I don’t subscribe, but my woman does for some reason) picks up stories from services like the Associated Press, etc. They could report on this if wanted to, but they haven’t. In the world according to this newspaper, the Uranium One deal never happened. They have breathed not one word about it. It’s totally invisible. If there’s anyone whose only source of news is this paper, that person is completely unaware that any such scandal ever occurred.

I have said this before in another context, but it bears repeating: Orwell was not exaggerating.

Last Post on the NFL Drama Queenery?

…at least, unless anything else noteworthy happens. This is a collection of miscellany pertaining to the recent drama queenery. What a pathetic spectacle: A bunch of 25-year-old men are acting like a bunch of spoiled, attention-whoring 13-year-old girls.

I’m going to take these in roughly sorta-kinda chronological order.

The biggest story of the weekend is from Canton, Ohio, where suddenly — spontaneously — for no apparent reason but plain patriotism, the Pro Football Hall of Fame sprouted 800 American flags.

Heh heh heh heh heh heh.

NFL now the least-liked sport:

Open thread for those still following. TNF down 12 percent, biggest decline to date the late double-header on CBS, which featured the Raiders vs Denver and was down 31 percent from last year.

Over just one month of player, coach, and owner protests of the flag and National Anthem, the National Football League has gone from America’s sport to the least liked of top professional and college sports, according to a new poll. From the end of August to the end of September, the favorable ratings for the NFL have dropped from 57 percent to 44 percent, and it has the highest unfavorable rating – 40 percent – of any big sport.

In a letter to NFL owners, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says:

We believe that everyone should stand for the National Anthem.

Ooooooooh! Saw the latest poll and ticket sales numbers, didya, Rog?

A commenter notes,

The NFL numbers must have been horrifically bad to force Goodell to so publicly bend the knee to Trump.

Ed Driscoll at Instapundit comments: “HE CHOSE…POORLY.”

Cratering ticket sales:
http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/nfl-ticket-sales-plummet-179/article/2635955

The National Football League is feeling the impact of the “Trump Effect.”

Ticket sales since he called on team owners to fire players who take a knee to protest the National Anthem have cratered.

The online ticket reseller TickPick told Secrets that sales have dropped 17.9 percent, far more than the usual Week Three fall.

From TickPick:
17.9 percent decrease in NFL orders this week compared to the previous week.
Last year the drop was 10.8 percent in orders on Monday & Tuesday following Week Three games.

17.9/10.8 = 1.657. So in other words, the sales slump is 66% worse than usual.

That’s what happens when you humiliate yourself before black identity extremism.

http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/21056998/nfl-ratings-75-percent-week-6-2017-compared-2016
First they note that ratings are off by 7.5% compared to the first six weeks of 2016. Further down they note how bad it is compared to two seasons ago: “Compared with the first six weeks of the 2015 season, NFL ratings are off 18.7 percent…”

Oooooh! That’s gotta sting! Then:

In the past week, Credit Suisse lowered its price targets on both Fox and CBS stock, citing NFL ratings declines.

“If ratings don’t improve materially, we see a potential headwind to domestic advertising revenues,” the investment bank’s analyst Omar Sheikh wrote of Fox…

Of course, the NFL would never engage in spinning to deny the problem. Oh, wait:

Last year, the NFL attributed part of its viewership decline during the first nine weeks of the season to competition from presidential election coverage. Viewership was indeed better for the second half of the season, after the election, but it still finished down 8 percent, compared with 2015.

“I’m just as good as you! I’m totally just as good as you!”

At John C. Wright’s blog – why have I never linked to this guy before? – Wright shows an excerpt from a recent Marvel comic in which a “bad guy” fights the new, pointlessly female “Thor.”
http://www.scifiwright.com/2017/09/lady-thor-exhibit-a/#more-19129

The “bad” guy says, with unanswerable common sense, “You wanna be a chick superhero? Fine, who the hell cares? But get your own identity.”

To which the female “Thor” responds with, among other things, “Thor is Thor.” Leftists: They lie even when they utter tautologies. Thor is indeed Thor, bitch, and that ain’t you.

She rambles on for a bit, then punches the guy in the jaw, while saying some blather about feminism.

Obviously, this whole white man replacement thing really constitutes the SJWs screaming, “NO! It’s not enough to have a female superhero! It must be a female superhero who shoves aside a male superhero! She must appropriate a man’s identity!”

Thus giving away the game that it’s all about hate. Not the fake accusation of “hate” that the Left always lobs at people who dare to disagree with them, but actual hate.

Of course, the so-called “bad guy” is totally right. Why not just have a heroine? Why does it have to be replacing a hero? It is the equivalent of the scene in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe in which Edmund draws spectacles and a moustache on the statue of a lion.

It’s defacement for the sake of defacement. It’s symbolically spitting on people the SJWs hate and fear, because, I guess, they think it will make them feel better. It’s astounding how much space white men take up in the heads of the Left. You don’t constantly protest, “I’m just a good as you! If not better!” against someone unless you’re constantly tortured by the feeling that you’re not as good as them.

Predictably, this never works in assuaging the feelings of inferiority, which is a reason that SJWs are never content, even when they win.

Media’s Reputation Continues to Fall

Washington Post: Trump’s already largely won his war against the media

…a poll released on Thursday from Marist College. Poll respondents were asked whom they trusted more, their favorite news source or Trump. Most Americans said their favorite news source, including large majorities of independents and huge majorities of Democrats.

But most Republicans said they trust Trump more, including just shy of two-thirds of those who voted for Trump last year.

I’m surprised it’s not 100%. Surely “people who voted for Trump” and “people who trust the media” are disjoint sets? Oh, wait a minute: It didn’t ask them if they trusted the media absolutely, just who they trusted more. And whatever their opinions about the relative trustworthiness, many Americans now know that the situation is so desperate that even if you believed everything the media said about him, you still knew it was imperative that he be elected, and Clinton NOT be elected.

Still, how can anyone think the media is more trustworthy than Trump? WTF?

Well, it’s actually not quite that, either:

…Consider the language used in this question. Marist didn’t ask people whom they trusted more between the media at large and Trump; it was a choice between the media outlet you like the best and the president. Presumably, the media outlet you like the best is the one you consider most reliable and informative, but even pitting a Trump supporter’s top pick of all of the media outlets against the president, the president wins.

Additionally, the fact that they worded the question that way is a good example of one of the many ways they try to bias poll outcomes.

Another poll asked a different question about the media (I love this one):

…A Politico-Morning Consult survey conducted online found that nearly half of Americans, a plurality, thinks that the media makes up stories about the president out of whole cloth. (Specifically, the question asked: “Based on what you know, do you believe the nation’s major news organizations fabricate news stories about President Trump and his administration, or not?”) That number includes three-quarters of Republicans and even 20 percent of Democrats.

Leftists Fear a Certain Phrase

BLACK IDENTITY EXTREMISM.

So we should start using it a lot.

iSteve with an analysis:
http://www.unz.com/isteve/nyt-is-spitting-mad-that-trumps-fbi-understands-sapir-whorf/

Steve quotes a frightened attempt at “Don’t believe your lying eyes!” by one Andrew Rosenthal at the Carlos Slim blog (formerly known as the New York Times; no, I’m not going to link it):

The next time there is an act of violence by an African-American against police officers, brace yourself for the right-wing media or the attorney general or the tweeter in chief to seize on the phrase “black identity extremists.”

Er, yes. Because killing someone at random just because of the color of his skin is extremism, to put it mildly.

Also, I love that “The next time there is an act of violence by an African-American against police officers…” That acknowledges that this is a common thing that is going to happen again. Thus Rosenthal feels a need to try to get out ahead and pre-empt discussion of it.

In summary, remember: Leftists fear the phrase

Black identity extremism

so be sure to use it whenever applicable.

NFL: The Circus Continues

A few days ago I posted what I said would be my next-to-last post on the NFL spectacle, unless something else interesting happened. Well, guess what? Something else interesting happened! So this will be my next-to-last post, barring further idiocy. (Of course, that “barring further idiocy” could keep me posting on this for the next eon.)

More NFL goodness, a.k.a., the circus continues:

Hopeless idiot Colin Krapohead, or whatever his name is, is filing a grievance against the NFL because no one will hire him. Er, what’s the grievance? Who, exactly, is guilty of what? The word being used is “collusion,” as in, “Coaches are colluding against me!” The statement from Krapohead’s lawyer is “Trump sux! Legacy of slavery!” Yeah, seriously.

The “Trump sux” part: “athletes should not be denied employment based on partisan political provocation by the Executive Branch of our government.” Jesus. It really is unbelievable how brazen the left is.

First of all, Krapohead is not unemployed because of Trump; he’s unemployed because he’s a crappy quarterback – he went 1-10 in his most recent season, yikes! – who will be a PR nightmare for any team that hires him.

Secondly, he was unemployed months before Trump called out the NFL for coddling these privileged little drama queens. Latest SJW narrative: Trump has a time machine! Fuck, but these people are desperate.

Thirdly, to turn a football game into a political event, as Krapohead did when he protested the anthem, and then whine that the President is engaging in politics, is vomit-inducingly hypocritical. God, but SJWs are such sick, sub-human little fucks. No normal human being could manage that level of hypocrisy. It’s like the old joke about the guy who murders his parents, then begs the judge for leniency on the grounds that he’s an orphan. The sheer brazen assholery and hypocrisy of these people just defies belief.

But it gets worse: His lawyer actually said this: “If the NFL (as well as all professional sports leagues) is to remain a meritocracy, then…” FUCK! Krapohead’s the one who made it about politics, not on-field performance, asshole! Now he’s saying that it should be a meritocracy, that is, only about how well he plays! Fucking fuck!!! It practically overloads the mind’s ability to grasp this level of shamelessness! I’m gonna blow a circuit. The whole sentence, omitting an aside about the owners, is: “If the NFL (as well as all professional sports leagues) is to remain a meritocracy, then principled and peaceful political protest… should not be punished.” In other words, “It should be solely about performance, so you should let my client make it about something other than performance.” Un. Fucking. Believable.

Of course, it’s also deeply amusing that a guy with a record of 1-10 would dare to talk about meritocracy in the first place.

BONUS: Krapohead wasn’t cut loose from the SF 49ers. He walked away from his contract with them last year, LOL!

I suspect his lawyer, one Mark Geragos, is thinking, “Well, I’ll take this moron’s money if he wants.”

There’s a legal analysis by Michael McCann at msn.com in the last day or two. (No link, sorry. The Internet is your friend.) Summary: It is, of course, hopeless for the dickhead.

All this makes one think of H. L. Mencken, that man who loved the spectacle of morons being moronic in public. He should be around these days. He’d flense these fucking idiots until they screamed.

Postscriptum: Stats about the imbecile.

From Wikipedia (I’d link to Infogalactic but their stats on him aren’t up to date):

“In 2015, Kaepernick… finished the season with 1,615 yards passing, six passing touchdowns, five interceptions and 256 rushing yards with one rushing touchdown.”

Holy shizznit, seriously? Only one more passing touchdown than interception? Why the fuck is anyone even talking about this guy? Even if you count his rushing touchdown, the story is, “Hire Colin Kaepernick! He’ll get you 7 touchdowns and 5 interceptions!” LOL. Give up, you pathetic loser.

From the useful site https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/K/KaepCo00.htm, his career regular-season record was 28-30, so he’s a proven NON-winner. But the career record masks the deterioration over time: In the 2014 season his record was 8-8. In the 2015 season, it was 2-6. In 2016… wait for it… 1-10.

Ugh. Untouchable. In his three most recent years, he’s 11-24. So his winning percentage is 11/(11+24) = 31.4%. He’s won less than a third of his games! And his most recent year, less than a tenth of them! Hire Colin Krapohead, and YOU can have the privilege of a quarterback who wins 1/11 = nine percent of his games. And he’s saying coaches don’t want to hire him because politics or racism or whatever. Unreal. The delusionality is strong in this one.

Bye, Krapohead. It was not nice knowing you.

Congressional Democrats Explicitly Call For Censorship

Eugene Volokh has an extended quote from a letter by two House Democrats, Bonnie Watson Coleman and Emanuel Cleaver, to Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter:

************ Quote from the letter begins ************

We are disturbed by the ease in which foreign actors were able to manipulate your platform to advance anti-American sentiments that both exacerbates [sic] racial tension and ultimately threatens our democracy. More importantly, we are disappointed by the silence from you and others in your industry on ways to counter such blatant manipulation of this medium to build racial animosity, the consequences of which are quite literally life threatening.

As federal representatives for the men and women most harshly affected by the consequences of your irresponsibility, we urge you to clearly outline: 1) what efforts you have made to detect these accounts and actions you have employed to eliminate racially divisive communications from your networks, 2) what security features you have in place to prevent foreign entities from meddling in our election process, 3) and what reporting process you have to inform the government and the public on the number, nature and impact of these problematic accounts.

Additionally, we are concerned that insufficient government oversight over your firm is inadvertently leading to deeper racial divisions and threats to our democracy. If Twitter continues to prove unable or hesitant to grasp the seriousness of this threat and combat the racialized climate that is being stimulated on your platforms, we, as Members of Congress, will be left with little option but to demand for increased regulations and government oversight of this industry to address these problems.

************ Quote ends ************

You gotta love the assertion that Twitter’s Orwellian “Trust and Safety Council” doesn’t have enough leftists doing censorship. God, leftists are brazen. You also gotta love the spectacle of Democrats suddenly feigning concern about people expressing “anti-American sentiments.”

Anyway, if I were Dorsey I’d respond by posting an open letter on Twitter that says,

Look, I understand that you’re worried about your political futures and feeling a need to play to your base. But by calling for censorship, you’re openly admitting that your base is people who like censorship. This is an astonishing misstep on your part, but thank you for making it.

Foreigners speaking is not “meddling in our election process.” But thank you for that, too… because you have now publicly conceded that foreigners interfering in US elections is a bad thing. Did you mean to concede that?

Since you are, or pretend to be, concerned about that, how about implementing tough measures to prevent non-citizens from voting in US elections – which really is foreigners meddling in our election process.

I’ll think about restricting foreigners’ speech… after you and other Democrats call for, and successfully implement, measures to stop foreigners from actually voting in our elections.

NFL Players Stupidly Bring Up the Topic of Violence

Barring further idiocy, this will be my second-to-last post on the NFL’s recent idiocy.

So a bunch of black NFL players have been trying to turn the National Conversation to the topic of violence. Dear Lord, REALLY? Are you guys seriously that fucking stupid? I always thought the image of dumb jocks was just an invidious stereotype. Maybe there’s something to it.

OK, dickheads, wish granted.

What fraction of white cops have killed a black man?

Okay, now…

What fraction of NFL players have committed a violent crime?

If I support the NFL, I guess I’m supporting physical assault. I wouldn’t want to do that! Better not have anything to do with the NFL.

http://nflarrest.com/
This site was down due to “extreme traffic” on September 26, 2017. I’ll bet. All of a sudden, American fans have had their attention called to the fact that NFL players are claiming to be angels. Seriously, fuckwits?

Even the Huffington Post isn’t buying it, for fuck’s sake!
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/nfl-violence-arrest-rate_us_55df5d9ee4b0e7117ba9336f

I don’t usually cite HuffPo, unless it’s for a laugh, but since NFL players are now claiming to be morally perfect little angels who are entitled to lecture everyone else:

Why Aren’t We Talking About What This Study Discovered About NFL Violence?
Researchers have found that NFL players get arrested for violent crimes more often than 20- and 30-something men.

HuffPo also notes that this understates things, because the study only counted arrests while the player was on an NFL roster, and the average NFL career is only 6 years. In contrast, the comparison group, men in their 20s and 30s, has no such limitation; it spans 20 years.

(So the disparity would go the other way if NFL players weren’t especially violent, by a factor of 20/6 = 3.33. I.e., NFL player are more than three times as likely to commit violent crimes as the general male population in that age group.)

Look, if even The Huffington Post can’t stomach the bullshit of your left-wing cause, it’s time to re-think.

At PJ Media https://pjmedia.com/trending/2017/10/01/now-wall-street-threatens-nfls-act/ we learn that

Contrary to the Black Lives Matter narrative, the police have much more to fear from black males than black males have to fear from the police. In 2015, a police officer was 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male was to be killed by a police officer.

Black males have made up 42 percent of all cop-killers over the last decade, though they are only 6 percent of the population. That 18.5 ratio undoubtedly worsened in 2016, in light of the 53 percent increase in gun murders of officers — committed vastly and disproportionately by black males.

Maybe talking about disparities in murder rates by race isn’t the way to go here, assholes.
