Death of Journalism

When the Trump thing began to rise up at the start of this year, all these journalists, big butch journalists like New York Times reporters were saying, “We’re going to expose all his corruption and how he bribed and neutered the state with his father”. And they printed it all. And it had no effect. Zero. So, that shows that journalism has changed in how most people perceive it. In the old days it would be like, “Oh my God, have you seem that? He’s a criminal. You can’t vote for him.” But now it’s all – oh, it’s the mainstream media who are saying that. If someone like Trump comes along and just lies all the time – allegedly – and a journalist says he’s lying and no-one bothers, and his popularity goes up, I’d say that journalism has lost of its main foundation.

    Dites moi pas que c’est pas vrai ! Depuis au moins 10 ans que tous les médias de réinformation, tous les forums, tous les blogs disent et prouvent à chaque seconde que les journalistes officiels sont tous des menteurs et le mec le découvre en 2016 ???!!! On savait que les types là haut sont grave perchés dans leur délire mais ça fait quand même un drôle d’effet de le constater réellement. Songeons que depuis 10 ans il n’a jamais songé même une fois cliquer ailleurs que ses maîtres lui ont dit de cliquer. Sinon il aurait bien vu la réalité, ce n’est pas possible.

Christian Response after UCC Shooting

As I scroll through the news this morning I am saddened to read the details of the horrible tragedy in Oregon. My heart goes out to the citizens of Roseburg — especially the families and loved ones of those murdered.

The recent spike in mass shootings across the nation is truly troubling. Whether the perpetrators are motivated by aggressive secularism, jihadist extremism or racial supremacy, their targets remain the same: Christians and defenders of the West.

While this is not the time for widespread panic, it is a time to prepare. I would encourage my fellow Christians who are serious about their faith to think about getting a handgun carry permit. I have always believed that it is better to have a gun and not need it than to need a gun and not have it.

Our enemies are armed. We must do likewise.

Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey, on Facebook.

    Je ne fais aucun commentaire sur le délire de persécution.

World of fantasies and fictions

I’ve been going over what was said at Wednesday’s Republican debate, and I’m terrified. You should be, too. After all, given the vagaries of elections, there’s a pretty good chance that one of these people will end up in the White House.

Why is that scary? I would argue that all of the G.O.P. candidates are calling for policies that would be deeply destructive at home, abroad, or both. But even if you like the broad thrust of modern Republican policies, it should worry you that the men and woman on that stage are clearly living in a world of fantasies and fictions. And some seem willing to advance their ambitions with outright lies.

Let’s start at the shallow end, with the fantasy economics of the establishment candidates.

You’re probably tired of hearing this, but modern G.O.P. economic discourse is completely dominated by an economic doctrine — the sovereign importance of low taxes on the rich — that has failed completely and utterly in practice over the past generation.

Think about it. Bill Clinton’s tax hike was followed by a huge economic boom, the George W. Bush tax cuts by a weak recovery that ended in financial collapse. The tax increase of 2013 and the coming of Obamacare in 2014 were associated with the best job growth since the 1990s. Jerry Brown’s tax-raising, environmentally conscious California is growing fast; Sam Brownback’s tax- and spending-slashing Kansas isn’t.

[…] Indeed, the only candidate who seemed remotely sensible on national security issues was Rand Paul, which is almost as disturbing as the spectacle of Mr. Trump being the only voice of economic reason.

[…] Now we have presidential candidates who make Mr. Bush look like Abe Lincoln. But who will tell the people?

Pope doesn’t hate science enough

WASHINGTON — When Pope Francis delivers a history-making address to a joint session of Congress next week, Rep. Paul Gosar, a Prescott Republican, won’t be there.

Gosar, a Catholic, said it was a tough decision to make, but he has decided to stay away from the address because he is “ashamed” of the pope’s position on the “false science” of climate change and what Gosar sees as a failure to speak out against radical Islam and Planned Parenthood.

“I don’t need to be lectured by the pope in regards to science or false science,” Gosar said Thursday, calling the pope “hardly a scholar with regards to the climate.”

While some reports have suggested what the pope may include in his speech, Gosar said he is “mortified and ashamed” by what could be absent from the address.

“The foremost authority on religion — one of the recognized leaders in the world — is coming to one of the greatest stages in the world, and his comments aren’t going to be directed on religious tolerance and the sanctity of life,” Gosar said. “If there’s anybody that can call out the Islamic faith, it’s the pope.”
