This blog community is dedicated to sharing captivating perspectives from MANY SIDES of the political spectrum and right now we rely on a TKC comment fave to offer the view from many Conservatives given that Kansas City is placed precariously between two very dedicated red states.

Chuck: Journalism is deader than fried chicken

Recently, CNN's Joe Lockhart compared Alan Dershowitz's "Public Interest" argument against Impeachment, to arguments made by Hitler and Stalin and implied that Trump was like Stalin.

I won't go into the details of the "Public Interest" argument, but it essentially says that the interests of the nation, in the opinion of all Presidents, often dovetail with the political ambitions of that same President. No doubt, all presidents think that their policies will garner favor with voters in future elections by way of the success of those same policies.

Over the last three years, the cacophony of accusations against this President have ventured light years past hyperbole and are now firmly ensconced into daily, ongoing "Coo Coo For Cocoa Puffs" ululations seen in the streets of 3rd World terrorist nations. I won't list the URLs of the hundreds of LIBERAL publications that admit that 95% of ALL of the coverage of Trump is negative, but, it is a fact.

We all get it, the media is Liberal.

But, the media, is losing.

The belligerently ignorant, in your face, abject, shameless, squalid, avowal of any semblance of objectivity is explained again and again, by MSM 'journalists' who (Like James Comey) have sworn allegiance to a "Higher Loyalty". The explanation given by the Progressive, puissant, pecksniffs who determine content, is that Trump is, well..., Stalin. Keep in mind that with famines, executions, pogroms and policies, Stalin killed over 12 million of his own people.

The American media is, ironically, in "Holodomor Denial" territory here.

The lack of sophistication from the liberal media is a busted flush that has diminished their individual organizations and the reputation of the 4th Estate as a whole. Everyday Liberals wake up to a "Dog's Breakfast" of predictable agitprop from apparatchiks like "Morning Joe" and retreat further and further into the opposition.

THIS, is the real cause of polarization, the blinkered, one sided pretense that only the left holds the high ground.

America is far, far better off with dissenting opinions based on reality and extrapolations from people who have not abdicated objectivity and like Joe Friday, just have the facts.

Hypocrisy is the homage vice pays to virtue. Guys like Morning Joe and his ilk, who compare Trump to Stalin are a cancer . . .
Facts count. Objectivity shows respect for all sides of every argument.

"And oftentimes, to win us to our harm, the instruments of darkness tell us truths, win us with honest trifles to betray us in deepest consequence". Macbeth

The Liberal MSM, would do well, to tone it down a little bit, after all, "There's daggers in men's smiles".

Hey Kansas City....

Trump has been a Democrat, and Trump has been a Republican.

In reality, he is NEITHER.

Trump is a REAL American patriot who is trying to unshackle the people from the iron grip of the NWO globalist cabal, and all their THOUSANDS of minions.

The fact that so many establishment "Republicans" detest Trump is just more evidence of the OBVIOUS.

The only reason that Trump is a Republican, is to USE the ONLY party that could make it possible to fulfill his mission.

He could not have ever gotten elected as a Democrat, let alone gotten ANYTHING done.

Try pulling your head out of your rectum, and realize that there's only SO many ways to accomplish what he's trying to do.

What's funny is, Liberals compare Trump to Stalin and Hitler, they are so stupid they don't even recognize their own enemies which is the democrat party who wants to put them in a globalist world order. Look at how many Christians Obama killed by not letting them take refuge in our country but he let every terrorist in the middle east come and go including out of GITMO. Liberals are the enemy of this country with ignorance that is unbelievable.

TRUMP 2020 KAG Best and bravest President this country has ever seen.

Well done Chuck.

To bad the media can't factually report the news and let us decide which side of the issue we want to be on. Today's media reports the side of the issue they want you on and to believe.

If MSM reported the truth those like Funkhouser would have to hide in shame for their way of thinking and factless rants

It’s sad that some of you really think your savior is Trump!

Anonymous said...

^^^^^ True@11:55, especially considering that he has failed at everything he said he was going to accomplish!

Now admittedly, he always has an excuse (usually because the Democrats kept him from doing it), but then he had an excuse for the failure of each of the twenty ventures described in "The Art Of The Deal", and all six of his bankruptcies have been someone else's fault as well.

I may appreciate what Trump is trying to do but I in no way look at him as a savior. No politician is a savior and never will be such. If you seek out an elected official as your savior you are walking a path that will deliver you nothing but dissatisfaction.

People need to stop looking at a person in political office as a savior. They are nothing but a human being who will sometimes say whatever if it will benefit their agenda. Sure Trump lies. Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Bush's, Johnson, Lucas and James all lied to you. They lie as much as most people walking this earth including you. Everybody lies here and there it's simple human nature to do so.

Thanks for the good and "Chuck is an asshole" comments.


Look, I would like for a little more perspective from the MSM, which, does indeed control the message. FOX is powerful, but up against the entirety of the MSM, the NYT, the Washington Post, The Chicago Trib, LA Times, MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC and affiliates, FOX is a teeny tiny voice, supplemented on the "interwebbs" by sites that are constantly being de-platformed.

Zero Hedge was thrown off of Twitter yesterday.

The MSM lacks, so, so very much in self awareness. The lack of self awareness, extends to "Premium" channels and the evidence is that CNN's Brian Stelter is producing a documentary on "Fake News" in the age of Trump. Up next, Mrs. O'Leary's cow will direct and produce a scathing indictment of the incompetence of the Chicago Fire Department.

It's sick.

The best part, is when they pout about so many people NOT believing their obfuscations, lies, legerdemain and outright fabrications in search of a Progressive result.

Journalism, is deader than fried chicken.

Byron Funkhouser said...

The journalist says that journalism is deader than fried chicken. No, it's not dead, or dying. Der Fuhrer's approval rating is still well below 50%.

The DOJ waited until after the vote for witnesses to say, "Oh by the way, we have two dozen emails that detail why Trump held up aid to Ukraine." But, guess what, it doesn't matter why, because he has no right to do that. Congress decides where the money goes.

This is why he had to declare a national emergency before he could take money from somewhere else for his imaginary wall (that Mexico isn't paying for.) He was obstructing Congress & abusing power regardless of his alleged reasons. Once Congress approved the aid, it was unconstitutional for him to hold it.

He must go.

Here is the transcript of the President's phone call.

Byron's, or, for that matter, anyone's subjective determination of the president's thoughts, or intent, during that same phone call, is, now and for eternity an opinion. Nothing more. If your opinion of this conversation leads you to believe, that the Easter Bunny is running the CIA and has proof of Russian Collusion - fine, but that is your opinion. As Patrick Moynihan, a great Democrat once said, "You are entitled to you own opinion, but not your own facts".

Here is a fact.


As such, he IS entitled to his own opinion, on whether or not there was the fire of criminality in the dense smoke that emanated from the Ukrainian company, Burisma, where Hunter worked at basically a "No Show" job. The stench of corruption was THE most salient aspect of this company and it was known as corrupt far and wide, far before Hunter started punching the clock there once or twice a year for a "Board Meeting".

The nation of Ukraine, has been corrupt for decades. Our tax payer monies, go to Ukraine in the form of "Foreign Aid" (Read "LET'S PARTY!!!!") and is cycled through companies like Burisma back into the coffers of American politicians, like the Bidens, McCain, Burr, Warner and Graham (Just to name a few.) who then, vote for MORE foreign aid from ever poorer tax payers to support the fuckin parasites in Washington DC.

Trump hated this and said so frequently even threatening to end ALL foreign aid in his campaign.

His lack of attention to this matter would have been a dereliction of duty.

Byron is exactly the useful idiot the msm likes, he thinks the media's job is to bring down trump's numbers not to report unbiased news. He is the type that thinks no wall has been built that trump's travel ban, changes to immigration laws and tariffs are not successful and that everyone who disagrees with him is just a racist...brainwashed by the (((media))).

Truly the msm is the propaganda arm of the globalists.

How many times will the Democrats GET Trumped. There are many Democrats going over to the Republican side .They see the Corruption on the Democrats side .And the Media is dishonest as well .The Russian Conspiracy for three years. The investigative reporter's on the independent news got it right. Hillary was dealing with the Russians and Sleepy JOE son was getting millions from the Ukraine $WEAR IS HUNTER.

When you made if very clear before and after the elction that your party was going to push out Trump you have pretty much showed your hand already and anything you do prodouce will more than likely like when Byron speaks be a lie.

And yet, Chuck @3:43, Maria Butina confessed to, was tried for, was found guilty of, and went to Jail for funneling over a hundred million US$ through the NRA into the Trump Campaign in 2016.

Collusion? In order to deny it you have to believe that Trump's entire Campaign Staff (run by his own Family) was so naive that none of them questioned where such a massive influx came from, especially when the Lapierre was publicly begging for money to "save the NRA"!

But of course Butina couldn't be questioned about any of this, since her sentence was somehow commuted and she was rushed out of the Country only to disappear aomewhere inside Russia.
