American Journalism Collapsed Before Our Eyes in 2008

Today I woke up the same way I wake up every day with coffee, internet news on the tablet and cable news on the TV.  I clicked over to the NY Post to read columnist Michael Goodwin’s article “American Journalism Has Collapsed Before Our Eyes.” Go here to read it.

I agree with Goodwin one hundred percent.  Is the media pulling all the stops to try to take Donald Trump down?  Absolutely.  On cable and nightly network news, it is wall to wall Trump coverage 24/7.  Most of it is negative. Meanwhile they virtually ignore Hillary Clinton and her campaign.

Benghazi?  It’s old news.  The Clinton Foundation is operating like a money laundering scheme?  It’s a nothing burger.  Is Hillary’s health an issue? Move along nothing to see here.  Do they ask why Hillary wore a wool coat at an outdoor east coast fundraiser in 90 degree heat in August?  Never.

The bias is undeniable.

My beef with Goodwin is that his article reads as if this all started with the presidential candidacy of Donald Trump.  It did not.  The year that the media and mainstream journalism collapsed before our eyes was 2008.  Sean Hannity has often referred to the year 2008 as “the year the media and journalism died.”

It was clear to everyone with a thinking mind that the mainstream press knob-slobbed then Senator Barack Obama while he was running for president.  But they really went off the wall when Governor Sarah Palin was picked as John McCain’s running mate.  With the national introduction of Palin, for the first time in the entire election cycle of 2008 there was a clear and present threat against Obama.  The media clearly had to take her down.

They had every reason to worry.   For the first time in the general election race, McCain was up in the polls right after Palin’s thunderous RNC acceptance speech.

Homegrown Islamic Supremacism Must Be Eradicated

Political elites continue to speak no Sharia, hear no Sharia and see no Sharia. If you see something say something.... but not if it's a Muslim. It's "known" wolves not "lone" wolves. If you must emigrate, learn to assimilate. Homegrown Islamism is not normal. Make America Normal Again.

Peggy Noonan Gets the Sads

In her latest article about the 2016 race, it's clear that Peggy Noonan is more concerned about the future and well being of the GOP than the future and well being of America.

Sarah Palin Trumps Cruz and the Republican Establishment in Wisconsin

Sarah Palin-- Still rogue after all these years.
On behalf of Trump, Palin speaks bold truths about Ted Cruz and the GOP establishment before a cold GOPE crowd  in Wisconsin 5 years after she appeared in the state with Andrew Breitbart on behalf of Scott Walker.

RE: Glenn Beck's Latest Jiggery Pokery

On Thursday, Sarah Palin posted this about Glenn Beck. https://www.facebook.com/sarahpalin/photos/a.10150723283643588.424640.24718773587/10153963056993588/?type=3&theater
This has been yet another episode in the ongoing feud between the former Governor and the talk show host.  Apparently, Glenn did not like the public mutilation of his genitals on Thursday, so he posted a response, playing the victim, for which I will respond:

"I just read Sarah Palin's Facebook page."
Bullshit. You probably read it the second it was posted. One of your cronies told you about Palin's post immediately.

"There is a problem in our society. Anger, vitriol and hatred are growing. Politics are coming between us as people."
Yes there is Glenn and you have contributed to the growth of that anger, vitriol and hatred on your talk radio show, now defunct Fox News show and Blaze TV.

"There are many political organizations, like Media Matters, that have taken people like Sarah and me on for years. I have stopped reading them or spreading their lies and spin.
Their lies are hurtful and nasty."
Don't blame Media Matters for your feud with Palin.  Anyone with a brain knows that Sarah and her husband treated you with nothing but kindness and respect.  It was YOU who drew first blood.

Do You Know The Whole Story About How Dinesh D'Souza Was Sent Up The River?

At CPAC 2013, Sarah Palin gave a speech that took shots at Karl Rove and the political consultant class who Pat Caddell accused of being "racketeers" and nicknamed them CLEC–the consultant, lobbyist, and establishment complex.

In her speech, Palin said it's time to furlough the consultants.  She urged conservatives to end the top down approach to picking candidates, to tune out  pollsters, and send the focus groups home.
Palin said, “If we truly know what we believe we don’t need the professionals to tell us."

She has been sounding the warning bell on the permanent political class and CLEC ever since.
Did the 2016 field listen to her warning? No.  Every one of these 2016 presidential campaigns are lined with unscrupulous political consultants. Every one. Including Ted Cruz. Including Donald Trump.

By now you know about what happened to conservative writer and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza. D'Souza went to prison when he was found guilty of violating campaign finance laws.  Was the reason that D'Souza was targeted by Obama and Eric Holder out of revenge for D'Souza expose films about Obama and his radical associations on the left?

Yes and no. Allow me to explain...

Obama Wants to Defeat USUS Not ISIS

The biggest threat to America has been sitting in the White House for 7 years. You have heard of the line...."Keep your friends close but your enemies closer." Obama keeps the American people closer.  Obama does not have a strategy for defeating ISIS. He has a strategy for defeating America. Obama hates USUS not ISIS. If you want Paris style Islamic attacks on America on a regular basis, keep letting more Mohammeds into the country.

RNC & Conservatism Inc. Mistakenly Alienated Sarah Palin

Even though Sarah Palin has been a trooper by getting conservatives and republicans elected, over the past 8 years, the RNC and Conservatism Inc. have managed to disrespect and alienate her in every way.  They will eventually pay for that at some point.  Perhaps that pay back will come in the form of another presidential race loss for the GOP/RNC/Conservative Inc for failing to use Palin--her grassroots cred, star power, beauty, background--to counter the gender narrative that will likely make Hillary Clinton the 45th President of the United States.

Paid Political Consultants Are Nothing But Whores

Scott Walker became the latest casualty of the political consultant world.  The paid political consultant is no different than the hookers haunting the streets of Hunts Point, Bronx.  Sarah Palin warned conservatives of the permanent political class (PPC) and told the GOP to "furlough the consultants" at CPAC 2013.  Did they listen? With the demise of both Perry and Walker's campaign, it's obvious they did not.  Palin supporters cannot have it both ways. You cannot agree with Palin's comments about consultants and the PPC and expect her to hire such people for a campaign. If Sarah Palin is going to run --whether it be in a few weeks or a few years-- with her instant name recognition, star power that rivals Trump, her ability to get free media and raise funds, what the hell should she rely on whorish consultants to run her campaign?
