Election junkies feast on junk food news

(page 1 of 2)

Hillary is a man, baby!

My source is even more reliable than international man of mystery Austin Powers. Now you know what the lamestream media won’t tell you about this hermaphroditic Democrat. Start tweeting now.

Take that Breitbart, Prntly, Trumpity, and collaborators in the Alt Right universe! For it is, indeed, an alternate universe. One that makes the Trekkie conventions look like the chamber of commerce.

  • Muslim interloper Barack Hussein Obama has signed an executive order banning the Pledge of Allegiance in schools nationwide, according to ABC News. Oh, wait, it’s actually Clever!
  • A web site claims Dem vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine is in an “open marriage.” (Debunked here.)
  • Lie factory “Prntly” claims that Rick Perry will challenge Ted Cruz in 2018. (“A made-up news website run by an ex-convict finds success,” reports the Washington Post.)

Get in my belly!

Gresham’s law applies to information as well as currency. Bad information drives out good information. Shades of Freddie Krueger that the Republican nominee has tapped the head of Breitbart to run his campaign.

Breitbart focused its death ray on Paul Ryan who, somehow, became its arch-nemesis. It’s no accident that Donald Trump dissed Ryan a week before the primary, apparently clueless that Ryan is immensely popular in Wisconsin (and, apparently, in the nation; House Republicans chose him as their leader). He buried his primary challenger Aug. 8 by an 84%–16% margin.

But “if you get your news from certain conservative media outlets, that came as a surprise,” Charlie Sykes has written.

The latest conspiracy is that Hillary Clinton is clinging to life. Kept alive by surreptitious injections of a wonder drug by that Man in Black who shadows her every move. Wearing Depends. This lie is promoted by the shameless sycophant Sean Hannity and others.

(Trumpity “showed a video of a supposed possible seizure that was in fact a comical gesture Mrs. Clinton was making to reporters,” the New York Times noted.)

CNN created Breitbart?

What about you, Blaska? Weren't you among those welcomed the man himself to town, arm in arm with Gov. Palin, just a few short years ago? They put on their show all over the country and when the idiots decided they wanted to drink straight from the spigot instead of having it filtered via Vicki M. and yourself, they sought it out.

Blame it on CNN if you want, but your role is well documented.

Breitbart went in the tank after founder and muckraking journalist Andrew Breitbart died very unexpectedly in 2012. Allegations from former staffers are that Trump began buying favorable coverage over a year ago.

Obama has taken ONE QUARTER the number of vacation days Bush took. Pick another media gripe. Obama has issued fewer executive orders than ANY two term president. Pick another gripe. Conservative says mainstream media bad: man, knock me over with this breaking story. And I guess blaming CNN for Breitbart is just the honey you mix with the hard medicine of an entire party's media machine paving the way for the worst candidate in this country's modern political history.

"The Obama administration in its first seven years finalized 560 major regulations — those classified by the Congressional Budget Office as having particularly significant economic or social impacts. That was nearly 50 percent more than the George W. Bush administration during the comparable period, according to data kept by the regulatory studies center at George Washington University." -- NY Times.

Breitbart started in the tank and only submerged deeper in it thanks to Bannon's stewardship. Andrew Breitbart himself never refused an opportunity to shame, demagogue and self promote, just like Trump. If he were alive today, Andy B. would be urging you and me to vote for Trump because of how much he would shake up the establishment. He would hold hands with Ann Coulter and berate those who weren't on board.

So? What if those 560 actions were beneficial to society or the economy as a whole? If they are, than we got twice the good work as we did under 8 years of the warmongering cheney/bush administration.

The question, August 29 at 12:25 p.m., is who decides what is beneficial? The executive acting unilaterally or with the law-making branch of government, the elected Congress? Perhaps Mr. Kahn could loan you his copy of the Constitution.
