Creeping Fascism in Plain Sight: WH Suspends Troublesome Reporter 30 Days.

When one aspires to a fascist or fascist-like leadership position, the first thing one does is wrestle control of the media. This is certainly not genius insight, indeed I believe it is likely taught in high school. That is why it is critical that we all pay attention when this particular White House, and this particular president, make a clear move against the First Amendment, in an attempt to control the press. Could anything be more obvious? Brian Karem, the chief White House correspondent for Playboy magazine, said Friday that his press pass is being suspended for 30 days in what he called an “anti-First Amendment move.” Damn right. Unless, you started a fight or something. Except, he did not, and the White House knows this all too well. The suspension will begin Monday, Karem said. In an interview late Friday, he said the White House told him the suspension was related to his actions in the Rose Garden nearly a month ago, where he infamously sparred with former White House aide Sebastian Gorka. The White House wrote that Karem “failed to abide by basic norms of decorum and order” on July 11, Karem said. The letter further suggested that Karem had been rude to Gorka — “a guest of the president.” Anyone who follows the news much has seen that clip, and the most charitable view (to the White House’s position) would be to say that Karem did not handle the “attack initiated by the President’s guest” perfectly. I mean that, by the way. He could have handled it better, and he could have handled it much, much, worse – but did not. He was flat ambushed by Gorka, an oily fascist himself. So, what is this really about? Oh, perhaps it is because Karem has been a thorn in both Sarah Huckabee-Sanders’ side and Trump’s hide, for quite some time. Perhaps you recall him asking Sarah Huck if she did not have any empathy, “as a parent,” for the kids separated at the border? Anyone who doesn’t have empathy for kids separated from parents, even parents who DO commit crimes, anyone without empathy for the innocent kids, is without any redemption and not fit to work in the White House. She could have answered the question easily: “Of course I do. However, there are several moving parts to this and we are attempting to stop other parents from risking their children’s lives in the journey from Central America, we do not want innocent children’s lives lost due to  …” Or even: “My private feelings about any policy are not relevant to the president’s decisions. Thus I will not ever comment upon my personal feelings.” See? I do not believe a single word of either answer for a second, however they are the types of answers that a press secretary for the White House ought to be able to make off the cuff, I sure did. But this White House doesn’t work that way. They take pride in inflicting pain without empathy. They want their voters, their base, to know it, wink wink. Ironically, another clear sign of fascism is a total denial of empathy for the perceived “enemy.” They learn that in high school, too, all too well. Regardless, the White House knows that Gorka went after that guy. Indeed, Gorka […]

Shame on The New York Times!

Buck-buck-BUCKAW!   The New York Times Well, that was a breath of fetid air.

Whoa! Trump Lashes Out At Fox News, Says They ‘Forget Who Put Them There’

Who knows what Fox News did to deserve this onslaught from their Viewer in Chief, the only viewer that they truly care about pleasing — except tonight, they emphatically did not. Here’s what Comrade Cheeto launched into the ether net on Sunday night. Watching @FoxNews weekend anchors is worse than watching low ratings Fake News @CNN, or Lyin’ Brian Williams (remember when he totally fabricated a War Story trying to make himself into a hero, & got fired. A very dishonest journalist!) and the crew of degenerate…… — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 7, 2019 …a “source” of information (ask the Times what they paid for the Boston Globe, & what they sold it for (lost 1.5 Billion Dollars), or their old headquarters building disaster, or their unfunded liability? @FoxNews is changing fast, but they forgot the people who got them there! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 7, 2019 Wow! Sure a 180% turnaround from his posture on Friday, when he was leaving for his golf course in New Jersey and grinning like the Cheshire cat, about great job numbers this month. He was floating euphorically to reelection just two nights ago. But then Jeffrey Epstein wasn’t cooling his heels in the house of many doors two nights ago. Now, going over to the Fox News website, the obvious thing that I see is Jeffrey Epstein being referred to as a monster and a Fox anchor calling for the removal of Alex Acosta. This must not be setting well with Tiny Thumbs. The rest is pretty boring stuff, Starbucks meeting with the Sheriff of Tempe and Michael Bennet talking about his presidential run — you could put an insomniac wired on meth to sleep with that drivel. So, it had to be “you helped cover up a pedophile billionaire’s sex schemes on an epic scale…will we see some accountability from Alex Acosta? He really needs to resign.” And then a female anchor chimed in, “I have zero tolerance for sex crimes.” Then another anchor gave assurances that Trump would deal with this, as he always does. “When you distract from the president’s agenda, you no longer need to be there.” What could Trump possibly find objectionable? Fox News has made Acosta the fall guy. Somebody has to bit the dust, Donnie, and you don’t expect Fox News to suggest it be you, do you? It will be interesting to see where this goes. Somebody better call Sean Hannity. Here’s a bit of humor from Twitter, who is oozing with concern and sympathy for Trump, as always. Are you and Fox breaking up? What, hannity won't fellate you tonight? Don't worry, Downtown Dobbs will, I'm sure. Turn off the TV and read a book for once in your life. Start with this one!https://t.co/4jxGFeHl0L — Howard (@HowardA_Esq) July 8, 2019
