How big a malicious dope is Paul Ryan? How corrupt and destructive to America is Big Media? Let’s look at the dope first then the corrosive effect of Big Media corruption in our elections.
Before last Friday Paul Ryan was in a win/win position. Paul Ryan was forced by the GOP grass roots to issue a limp endorsement of Donald J. Trump and that phony endorsement freed Paul Ryan to constantly attack Donald J. Trump and never say a word in any way critical about Hillary2016. Paul Ryan was in a sweet spot.
Paul Ryan was in a win/win position no matter what happened in November. If Hillary2016 won Paul Ryan saw himself as the premier Republican leader, as he would have been. More importantly, Paul Ryan wants to pass TPP and illegal immigration amnesty and a Trump loss in November would allow Speaker Ryan to do just that. Quisling Paul Ryan would pass the Chamber of Commerce agenda in the House. If Donald J. Trump won, Speaker Paul Ryan would be the leader of the Republican House of Representatives and Speaker Ryan would lead the Dims and a rump group of Republicans in opposition to Trump. Whatever happened in November, Paul Ryan had it gamed out as a win.
But then Paul Ryan overreached and now Paul Ryan is in a lose/lose position. If Hillary2016 wins, Paul Ryan will be booted as Speaker. If Donald J. Trump wins, Paul Ryan will be booted as Speaker. What a dope. He had it all but wanted to dump Trump to be the candidate after he knocked off Mike Pence. What a dope.
Sleazy Politico reports that in the swing states the GOP leaders are standing with Trump. This is an attack against Paul Ryan. Rasmussen polls showed Donald J. Trump on Monday behind by seven. By the end of the week Rasmussen has Trump up by two. As M. Joseph Sheppard documents, the tracking polls after some ups and downs during the week, nothing much changed on the poll front despite all the pearl clutching and hair pulling. Trump is also rebounding in the state polls.
When citizens are frustrated with the way things are going in the nation, they may be motivated to vote for change.
As we have repeatedly noted every time Chicken Little squawks “It’s over for Trump”, this is a change election. In a change election the candidate for change wins.
So what happened this past week? This past week Big Media decided to pummel Donald J. Trump with everything available because nothing thus far has made “It’s over for Trump” true. Big Media tries and tries to destroy Donald J. Trump and all that is accomplished is the American public watches the coup against the people.
Big Media is using polls to legitimize the Big Media attacks against Trump. Many of the polls are entirely cooked. Big Media attacks Trump then highlights even the least movement in the polls against Trump to demonstrate it is the people that are against Trump. But then Trump fights back. The people see Trump fight back. The people decide to stand with Trump. It’s a movement for change. Big change, not chump change.
Why do the people stand by Trump? The usually clueless home of Big Media collaborator with Hillary2016, CNBC makes a good guess:
Get ready for more Trump the pit bull that we saw on Sunday night. For some reason, when voters see Trump angrily fighting for himself, many of them take it be an example of how he’ll fight for them.
It’s what we wrote about to explain Donald J. Trump’s rise back in July of 2015:
Despite all these ideological attacks and corporate desponsorship attacks, and Big Media attacks, Donald Trump is growing in popularity with the voters. Why? We explain in simple English the Donald Trump mystique:
WHEN YOU ARE IN A SNAKE PIT YOU DON’T CARE WHO HANDS YOU A STICK.
We’ve been warning about this for the longest time. In recent elections in so-called “democratic” countries – the voters are being ignored. In election after election, voters vote for an establishment political party – then once in power the political party they voted for stabs them in the back. Witness the 2014 elections in the United States in which the Republican Party won elections based on opposition to Barack Obama then once in cozy offices they pull out all the stops to assist Barack Obama to pass ObamaTrade. This happens over and over and over.
Eventually voters catch on and they decide to vote for the biggest motherf*cker around who will do what they want. The voters find themselves in a snake pit, surrounded by vipers, and they reach up to grab whatever stick is handed to them.
Big Media and the entire political ruling class are terrified of Donald J. Trump. Want to know why Big Media and the entire political ruling class is terrified of Donald J. Trump? Big Media believes they are the power which ensures the supremacy of the political ruling class. Here is how Big Media dictators think of themselves:
Those of us in the media are not mere stenographers. We decide whose voices to elevate. We amplify information. We generate the narratives that define public discourse. This isn’t an opinion about how journalists should do their jobs; it’s a statement of fact about the power of information and those who wield it.
The main difference among journalists is that some are agnostic about what happens on the other side of the editorial wall. The rest of us are not.
As we wrote years ago, Big Media has turned into a political party determined to protect it’s power. It’s why Big Media opposes the Citizens United decision. Before Citizens United, corporate power by companies such as the Washington Post Company and the New York Times Company could be wielded as a monopoly exerting political power with editorial page endorsements valued in the millions to political campaigns. Now the companies which publish and control these newspapers and broadcast outlets no longer have monopoly power. Combine the Citizens United Supreme Court decision with the rise of the internet and the ruling class finds itself in danger.
The Citizens United decision and the rise of the internet threaten the ruling class. Then to the horror of the ruling political class, Donald J. Trump stood up to challenge their corruption as well. Now with Donald J. Trump, the power of the internet, the diminished power of Big Media, the ruling class sees the glint of the guillotine.
The rise of the internet and citizen journalists is much like the invention of the printing press. Before the printing press, kings and courtiers did not care much about “public opinion”. There was no such thing as public opinion. The people did not count. Then with the printing press and the rise of the written word, public opinion became a force to contend with. Over the years the owners of the printing presses began to think themselves as lords and masters. Now they have become Big Media in control of the printing presses, the pixel presses, the broadcast news and the cable outlets. It’s time to lop off the heads of Big Media in the same way the heads of dictators and kings rolled through the streets.
Years after we coined the phrase “Big Media” a Big Media outlet use the very term:
It’s an idea that was born when Time Inc. merged with Warner Communications Corp. in 1989, to form Time Warner. It endured as the industry’s prevailing business model for nearly a generation, spawning such clones and mongrel breeds as Viacom, News Corp and GE’s NBC Universal. The vertically integrated media conglomerate was—or was supposed to be—many amazing things, giving a handful of companies unprecedented power over the media—and the chance to earn outsized profits in the process. But its defining characteristic was its sheer size, earning it a fitting nickname: Big Media.
But the theory behind the strategy relied on more than size. Housed under one roof, a single Big Media entity would control the means of producing and distributing media content, from magazine and books to television shows and movies, from cartoons and theme parks to sports franchises and the cable networks that carry the games to recorded music labels and music publishers. In Time Warner’s prototype of the model, it would control everything from the first letter of a Time magazine story or Warner Books novel to the last alphabet of the credits at the end of a Warner Brothers flick or HBO series based on the magazine story or the book division’s fiction.
Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Big Media is absolutely corrupt. Big Media is the enemy.
Hillary Clinton supporters from 2008 recall that election well and we remember the absolute corruption of Big Media. That was a primary election drenched in sexism and misogyny. Big Media flexed its muscles in favor of Barack Obama. Nothing Barack Obama did was focused on. Everything Hillary Clinton said or did was attacked or ignored if it was favorable. Big Media was all in for Barack Obama and all in against Hillary Clinton.
The other night I dreamt of Barack Obama. [snip]
Were other people, I wondered, being possessed by our new first family?
I launched an e-mail inquiry. And learned that they were. Often, in strikingly similar ways.
Many women — not too surprisingly — were dreaming about sex with the president.
That cheap Big Media whore, Judith Warner masturbated herself on the editorial pages of the New York Times. Back in 2008 whores like Judith Warner engorged themselves watching Barack Obama’s penis while pretending to be all for woman power.
These woman power advocates of 2016 have forgotten what happened in 2008. In 2008 Big Media did everything to protect and fellate Barack Obama. That’s a fancy way of saying “blow job”. Any Hillary2016 advocate who associates themselves with Big Media only because this time Big Media is “on our side” is a whore. We have warned these whores that “what goes around comes around“. Big Media is not supporting Hillary Clinton nor did Big Media support Barack Obama. It’s the contrary. Barack Obama supported and enabled Big Media in 2008 and 2012. Now in 2016 Hillary Clinton is a whore to Big Media.
In 2008, Harry Reid claimed Barack Obama was a light skinned negro who talked OK. Biden liked Obama because Obama was clean. Big Media could find no fault with Barack Obama.
In 2008 CNN however possessed a videotape which could have destroyed Barack Obama and brought forth all the allegations of sexism and misogyny which were so evident in that campaign. Did CNN let American voters see the videotape? No. The videotape would have hurt Obama so the videotape was suppressed:
Obama’s Own Lewd Tape Emerges: Flaunts His Erection to Female Reporters [snip]
The video was captured by CNN back in 2008 while then-Senator Obama was first running for the highest office in the land. The 1:38 clip (below) features Obama seeming to proudly show off his erection to giggling female reporters, even giving them a full 360-degree display of his manhood while they cheer him on.
Big Media is the enemy. Whores like Judith Warner have been replaced in 2016 by Hillary Clinton 2008 supporters who now sing the praises of Barack and Michelle Obama and/or Hillary2016.
Big Media is the enemy. It’s not just “liberal” Big Media that is the enemy:
Wikileaks: ‘Anti-SJW’ Heat Street Founder Louise Mensch Pitched Ad Script to Hillary Clinton Campaign
Former British Conservative Party Member of Parliament and “right wing” blogger Louise Mensch privately tried to assist the Hillary Clinton campaign, emails published by Wikileaks reveal.
Mrs. Mensch runs the Rupert Murdoch-backed blog Heat Street, which claims to stand against identity politics and what it labels “social justice warriors” under the slogan “no safe spaces.”
However, its editor in chief, Mrs. Mensch, was caught writing a campaign advertisement script for the Democratic candidate – a woman who has traded off identity politics and social justice warrior politics. The ad appears to be based on the idea that Mrs. Clinton should be in office simply because she is female and is supported by “multiracial” women.
“… much rather have your girl Hillary,” Mrs. Mensch wrote in an email to Michael Kives of Creative Arts Agency (CAA), a former Clinton campaign advocate.
She said Hillary’s “intelligence [is] beyond doubt” but argued she “is not capitalizing on the yearning that we have to see a woman as President,” before scripting the campaign ad named “OUR TIME.”
Big Media is the enemy. Some in Big Media who believe the role of the media is to inform the American public have a problem with Trump because of the bias of their own circumstances. For instance the political heavyweight analyst Michael Barone is capable of seeing the bias in himself:
Overall, as I wrote on debate night, I think Clinton won the debate. Perhaps that reflects a professional writer’s prejudice in favor of people who speak, more or less, in whole sentences and paragraphs, and prejudice against those who engage in free-form, parenthetical-filled, free-association discourse. Or perhaps a former political consultant’s bias in favor of candidates who are well prepared. But on reflection and looking over the transcript, I think Trump did a fairly good job of discouraging marginal voters from voting for Clinton, more than I appreciated as I watched the debate.
Barone made that analysis of the first debate. He thought Hillary won but Barone acknowledged his bias favors the conventional candidate who speaks and strategizes in a conventional way, the way Barone would speak and strategize. Unfortunately, Barone let his prejudices and bias cloud his initial response to the first debate. Big Media power wielders should do an analysis based on their initial reactions but temper their reactions with honest assessments “on the other hand”.
Most Big Media writers no longer view their role to inform the public as their responsibility. Big Media today views their role as “not mere stenographers. We decide whose voices to elevate. We amplify information. We generate the narratives that define public discourse… the power of information and those who wield it.”
In this election it is Donald J. Trump and the people against Big Media. Nothing else matters. All else is subordinate. The thirst of the guillotine must be quenched. The ruling political class must be destroyed.
Big Media is the enemy. Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Big Media is absolutely corrupt. Big Media is the enemy.
