Get Woke Go Broke: WaPo Edition

Good thing capitalism blessed Jeff Bezos with so many $billions. He may need every penny to keep his Marxist propaganda rag afloat:

Washington Post publisher and CEO William Lewis had a blunt message for his staff during a tense meeting following the sudden ouster of executive editor Sally Buzbee, according to the paper’s own reporting.

Yelps Lewis:

“We are losing large amounts of money. Your audience has halved in recent years. People are not reading your stuff. Right. I can’t sugarcoat it anymore.”

“Democracy Dies in Darkness” proclaims the sophomorically left-wing publication. Make that, “Moonbattery Dies in the Light.” Living under Biden has shined a klieg light on what leftist politics entails for our future. Nobody except journalists is buying liberal BS anymore — and they can’t make money selling it to themselves.

The Jeff Bezos-owned paper lost more than $70 million in 2023 and lost 50% of its audience in the same period, according to The New York Times.

In the final quarter of 2023, the Post implemented staff buyouts in order to prevent mass layoffs.

They ought to learn to code. Isn’t that what liberal journalists said people working in the energy industry should do? The difference is that we need energy; nobody needs the Washington Post.

Joy Behar Urinates Herself in an Ecstasy of Malice

Our descent into tyranny means happy times for evil idiots like Joy Behar, who was so delighted over the leading presidential candidate being found guilty of politically motivated felony charges in a preposterous show trial that she publicly wet herself:

While the ladies [sic] of The View don’t usually film the show live on Fridays, they all gathered [last Friday] to react to the Republican’s guilty verdict in his Manhattan hush money trial.

‘I was at Costco buying 10 boxes of Keurig coffee,’ Joy shared with viewers.

‘My watch started to buzz, and I got so excited, I started leaking a little bit.’

Our descent into the societal decay that makes tyranny possible means that people like this install opinions into the heads of voters. If we degenerate any further, Democrats won’t feel the need to arrest their political opponents.

Ashley Biden’s Diary May Help Bring Down MSM

If there was any doubt even after Hunter Biden’s laptop that the media establishment has no credibility and serves only to secure the power of the Democratic Party, Ashley Biden’s diary has put it to rest:

In 2019, Ashley Biden, the then 37-year-old daughter of President Biden and his wife Jill, wrote in her journal about showering with her father at an inappropriate age as well as her fears that, as a child, she was sexually abused. …

After undergoing treatment in rehab, Ashley moved to a halfway house in Florida, where she left the diary under a mattress.

It was released to the public. Astonishingly, the media has refused to report this bombshell story, even in light of Biden’s incessant inappropriate behavior around little girls. The New York Times would acknowledge only that the diary was stolen but not what was in it.

They tried to get us to believe that Hunter’s laptop was “Russian disinformation.” That dog wouldn’t hunt, so this time around they are lying only by omission.

Ashley herself has now confirmed – in a court document made public last month – that the diary is indeed authentic.

The double standard is more obvious than ever:

If this were the diary entry of a Trump daughter, the media would be at DEFCON 1. This would be front-page news, the sole focus of special Rachel Maddow furrowed-brow editions, MSNBC and CNN primetime investigations, the incessant drumbeat of every Sunday show and op-ed from now until election day, the left-wing press demanding answers.

The media is powerful, yet despite its best efforts to demonize Trump and whitewash Biden, it appears increasingly unlikely that Democrats will hold on to power without resorting to significant election fraud.

What Biden has been doing to US currency through inflation, the media that put him in the White House is doing to its own credibility. When people stop taking the MSM seriously, its power will crumble, as will the power of the party it exists to prop up.

Unified Reich Hoax Marks New Low

Democrats in both the government and media have taken disinformation to a new extreme of shamelessness and absurdity with the “unified reich” hoax.

The term appears amid newspaper text in a Trump ad. The context is Austrian politics in the runup to World War I. By stripping away the context, propagandists have exploited the two essentially random words to support their contention that Donald Trump is Adolf Hitler.

The supposedly scandalous words are from a widely available template that was used in the ad. You have to watch closely to catch them:

Liberal information gatekeepers bank on public ignorance. This hoax was quickly exposed, but those sealed in the MSM echo chamber will never know that.

In defense of moonbats, it can’t be easy for the proponents of a race-obsessed authoritarian regime to cast their opponents as Nazis.

Instead of exploiting the opportunity to emphasize that their opponents are liars, the Trump campaign deleted the ad as if it had been caught with its hand in the cookie jar, lending seeming credibility to the childish claim that Trump wants to establish the Fourth Reich.

The reflex is always to retreat in the face of the media. It should be always to attack.

Establishmentarian Lackey Praises Kamala’s Cackle

Could any other liberal establishmentarian be as obsequious as the brown-nosing toady Howard Stern? Yes: Drew Barrymore. Try to keep your lunch down as she nearly climbs into Kamala Harris’s lap while praising the shrill, humorless cackle that sets everyone’s nerves on edge:

Remember voters: any complaints about Kamala Harris are not only racist but sexist. That’s why the Powers That Be intend to install this conspicuously incompetent moonbat as POTUS behind the decrepit Joe Biden, who is already virtually brain dead and is unlikely to live through a second term.

The media is in effect the PR department of the Democratic Party — as Drew Barrymore and Howard Stern make embarrassingly obvious.

Profiles in Establishment Toadyism: Howard Stern

It isn’t only in rock music that time tells the difference between genuine rebels and poseurs working a shtick. Back in the 1990s, shock jock Howard Stern monetized being an obnoxious jerk by presenting himself as a fearless confronter of the establishment. But passing years soon wore away the facade, revealing the sycophant beneath.

Looks like the cowering Covid kook is no longer hiding in his mansion lest he come down with the sniffles. He has crept out to fulfill his duty as a Democrat apparatchik by conducting a softball interview with the figurehead of the liberal establishment, Creepy Joe Biden. Joe Concha sums up the farce:

In what can only be described as the best PR any person in power could possibly ask for, the host went out of his way to repeatedly praise Biden for things like “getting the vaccine out” after COVID hit (that was Trump). Stern also claimed that Biden has “cut emissions in half” (no, he hasn’t). The former shock jock-turned-Democratic activist also falsely accused Republicans of being “pro-Putin” simply because some wanted U.S. border funding to accompany Ukraine aid. And when Biden (again) claimed he was arrested standing alongside a Black family on their porch when he was a youth, a claim that had been thoroughly debunked, Stern stayed silent. …

Overall, both men got exactly what they wanted: Stern proved he can kiss butt on a Colbert/Kimmel/Meyers-like level while impressing his A-list celebrity friends in the Hamptons, while Biden came across as a sympathetic figure who loves his family.

But the interview was live, so Biden managed to make a mistake, even with the obsequious suck-up Stern:

“I don’t know if you’re going to debate your opponent,” Stern said.

That was Biden’s cue to proclaim that he would be happy to debate Trump but regrettably he cannot due to unspecified unacceptable behavior on the part of our 45th (and hopefully 47th) president. But as his handlers no doubt groaned, Biden mumbled,

“I am, somewhere, I don’t know when. I’m happy to debate him.”

Trump’s response was immediate:

“Everyone knows he doesn’t really mean it, but in case he does, I say, ANYWHERE, ANYTIME, ANYPLACE, an old expression used by Fighters.”

Will not happen. If the bumbling Biden can’t even get through an interview with a lackey like Howard Stern without screwing up, imagine what Trump would do to him on a debate stage, regardless of how many drugs his handlers pump into Creepy Joe.

NPR CEO Katherine Maher Is Scarier Than We Knew

It would be hard to overstate the danger posed by the leftists who control the media. Consider Katherine Maher, cartoonishly woke CEO of the state-affiliated propaganda outlet NPR. Her ambitions are bigger than spooning out moonbattery for kooks with the belly for it. She is a revolutionary in the most alarming sense of the term — as Christopher Rufo reports:

The West’s favored methods of supporting Color Revolutions include fomenting dissent, organizing activists through social media, promoting student movements, and unleashing domestic unrest on the streets. Americans hold varying opinions on such efforts, but what many don’t realize is that they occur not only overseas but also here in the United States. The summer of rioting following the death of George Floyd, which ushered in the new DEI regime, was in many ways a domestic Color Revolution, advanced by progressive NGOs, media entities, and political actors.

Among them was Katherine Maher.

Maher was involved in the wave of Color Revolutions that took place in North Africa in the 2010s, and she supported the post-George Floyd upheavals in the United States in the 2020s.

Remember when Obama helped depose Muammar Gaddafi, a former enemy who had become a de facto ally of the USA against Islamic terrorists, leaving a power vacuum for ISIS? “We came, we saw, he died!” cackled Obama’s chillingly vicious Secretary of State.

During the volatile Arab Spring period, under a constantly rotating series of NGO affiliations, Maher went to multiple countries that were undergoing U.S.-backed regime change.

These include Libya.

That the Obama Regime turned its back on the Green Revolution in Iran puts the lie to the pretense of advancing freedom.

During much of 2011, Maher worked for the National Democratic Institute, a government-funded NGO with deep connections to U.S. intelligence and the Democratic Party’s foreign policy machine. The organization was “set up to do independently what CIA had done covertly worldwide,” says national security analyst J. Michael Waller. While initially some distance supposedly existed between NDI and the intelligence services, that relationship has devolved back to “the gray zone,” per Waller, and it appears that they often work in concert. “NDI is an instrument of Samantha Power and the global revolution elements of the Obama team,” Waller explains. “It has gone along with, and been significant parts of, color revolutions around the world. It is very much a regime-change actor.” …

During her time at NDI, Katherine Maher was “part of a revolutionary vanguard movement,” says Waller.

NPR is a means to an end:

It is state radio, in the Soviet sense: it produces propaganda to advance its own cultural power and move the nation toward a desired end-state.

Maher understood the power of media—and radio, in particular—early in her career. In 2010, according to a now-deleted blog post that I have obtained, Maher speculated that seizing control of radio could be a way to “Govern a Country.”

Only ideologically deranged liberal elitists listen to NPR at this point. But it plays a key role in an overall strategy. So do Wikipedia and the encrypted-messaging application Signal. Maher was CEO of the Wikimedia Foundation and is chairman of the board at Signal.

Where the Deep State, the Obama/Biden regime, and the hostile ideology espoused at our expense on NPR intersect, there stands Katherine Maher.

As ham-fisted lawfare has made obvious, Democrats are pulling out all the stops to prevent Trump from being democratically returned to the White House. If they fail, the next government Maher helps overthrow may be our own.

Why NPR Must Be Immediately Defunded

NPR has always been moonbatty, often to the point of inducing nausea, but in recent years it has gone overboard into hardcore leftism. Uri Berliner worked there for a quarter of a century. He was recently driven out for publicly noticing the extreme bias of what is supposed to be an objective news outlet:

The change, he said, started with the election of Donald Trump. He described how the programming relentlessly pushed the Russian-collusion story only to leave it largely unmentioned once the Mueller report did not establish collusion; how NPR consciously refused to cover the Hunter Biden laptop story in the runup to the 2020 election; and how during Covid, its journalists portrayed the lab-leak theory as having been debunked when it had not been.

There is a thin line between spinning and lying. NPR crosses it on behalf of a profoundly destructive ideology.

In the wake of the George Floyd killing and the ensuing riots, NPR followed other institutions in imposing a DEI framework organization-wide.

NPR pushed its trademark flakiness to new extremes with “affinity groups”…

… including “MGIPOC (Marginalized Genders and Intersex People of Color mentorship program); Mi Gente (Latinx employees at NPR); NPR Noir (black employees at NPR); Southwest Asians and North Africans at NPR; Ummah (for Muslim-identifying employees); Women, Gender-Expansive, and Transgender People in Technology Throughout Public Media; Khevre (Jewish heritage and culture at NPR); and NPR Pride (LGBTQIA employees at NPR).”

Imagine expecting accurate coverage from this collective of kooks.

NPR regards identity group diversity as its “North Star.” As for viewpoint diversity,

When Berliner did a search of voter-registration records of editorial employees of the D.C. newsroom, he found 87 Democrats and zero Republicans.

They say a fish rots from the head. The head of NPR is CEO Katherine Maher:

“I do wish Hillary wouldn’t use the language of ‘boy and girl,’” she lamented in 2016, “it’s erasing language for non-binary people.” In 2020, she defended rioters, posting, “I mean, sure, looting is counterproductive. But it’s hard to be mad about protests not prioritizing the private property of a system of oppression founded on treating people’s ancestors as private property.” She also wrote, “Lots of jokes about leaving the US, and I get it. But as someone with cis white mobility privilege, I’m thinking I’m staying and investing in ridding ourselves of this spectre of tyranny.”

That must be a reference to Donald Trump, whose participation in a fair election represents what NPR types would call a “threat to Our Democracy.”

At another point, she posted a picture of herself — masked outdoors, naturally — with a “Biden for President” hat. In a meandering TED Talk that makes Vice President Kamala Harris’s musings seem coherent, Maher blurted out the gem that, “We all have different truths.”

Prepare to be condescended to as the head of NPR explains the concept of truth:

She clarifies that although all “truths” are equally valid, truths that do not comply with woke ideology are not valid; bitterly clinging to these wrong truths is what causes deplorables to distrust the liberal establishment:

Maher calls the First Amendment the “number 1 challenge” to suppressing “bad information” — i.e., “truths” she doesn’t like:

In this apparatchik’s conception of utopia, everything except the corrosive lies spewed on NPR would be illegal.

Bad enough that the federal government forces us to fund a news program. This is obviously unnecessary given the alphabet soup of news outlets (ABC/NBC/CBS/CNN/MSNBC/ETC.) and outside its constitutional purview. Forcing us to fund propaganda that does not pass the laugh test as objective news is corrupt.

Grotesquely excessive federal spending threatens the viability of the American economy. To save the country, a Javier Milei style chainsaw is required. Defunding low-hanging fruit like NPR/PBS is a no-brainer.

BBC Lets Readers Believe Scarlet Blake Is a Woman

Imagine how clueless people must be who rely on leftist propaganda outlets like the government-affiliated BBC for information. For example, they might believe that Scarlet Blake — a Netflix-inspired cat torturer who graduated to murder — is not a transsexual but a woman:

The broadcaster received complaints about how Scarlet Blake’s trans identity was not mentioned in an online article on Feb 23 and the BBC News at One three days later, on the day [he] was sentenced.

This was found to breach the Beeb’s own accuracy rules. But accuracy takes a back seat to promoting the preposterous lie that “trans women” (i.e., men who proclaim themselves to be women) literally are women, although some BBC reports did admit to Blake’s transsexual status.

From deliberately using erroneous pronouns to keeping readers in the dark by never mentioning the actual gender of criminals is a short step. This assertion from the BBC’s Executive Complaints Unit is astonishing in its contempt for both factual reality and logic:

“[A] simple refusal to use the terms in which people who regard themselves as transgender describe themselves would in effect be an endorsement of one viewpoint in this controversy.”

That is, the BBC kowtows to LGBT ideologues by deliberately using false and misleading pronouns because to describe subjects accurately would endorse the viewpoint that objective reality should take precedence over the delusions/pretensions of sick freaks like Blake.

For BBC viewers, deception and inaccuracy are not bugs but features. They want to be protected from anything that would challenge their viewpoint. The Beeb can be relied on to subordinate factual reality to the Narrative.

Those who are not devoted moonbats are advised never to take anything reported by the BBC at face value. The same goes for the entire alphabet soup of liberal establishment propaganda platforms (PBS, NPR, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, etc.).

CNN Reveals Appeal of O.J.

If you watch CNN long enough, eventually you will see one of its less gifted professional liars slip and say something true. In the video below, Stephanie Elam explains the appeal of O.J. Simpson: it gratifies certain people to see a black guy get away with murder.

It is especially gratifying to some when there is no doubt whatsoever of his guilt and his victims are Caucasian.

Media Floats Dexter Reed as 2024’s George Floyd

There is a big election coming, and for obvious reasons, the Democrat establishment is vulnerable. Time to intimidate the public with massive race riots like in 2020.

Did the police kill Dexter Reed just to be racist? Actually no; the scumbag had opened fire on them, wounding an officer. But that’s not how the mainstream media presents it. Via Breitbart:

• The Incredible Shrinking Washington Post: Police fire 96 shots in 41 seconds, killing [b]lack man during traffic stop

USA Today: Seat belt violation ends with [b]lack man dead on Chicago street after cops fired nearly 100 bullets

CBS News: Why did traffic stop, shootout with Chicago Police killed Dexter Reed escalate so rapidly?

The Independent: Black man’s family demand answers after bodycam shows Chicago police firing 96 times in deadly shooting

Associated Press: Deadly Chicago traffic stop where police fired 96 shots raises serious questions about use of force

Chicago Sun-Times: Killing of Dexter Reed raises questions about Chicago police reform. ‘The message is, go in guns blazing.’

The liberals in charge had good reason to bestow large monetary rewards upon Black Lives Matter rioters in places like Philadelphia, New York, and Denver. They wanted to be sure their weaponized mob could be relied on when needed.

Even if hyping Dexter Reed gets insufficient traction because it is too obvious that the police did nothing wrong, it will at least help prime the pump for the inevitable next incident.

ABC Moonbat: Global Warming Caused Earthquake, Eclipse

The stupidity of the propagandists who install opinions via television is so massive, it could shake the earth and blot out the sun. Sunny Hostin exceeds the cognitive deficiency even of her cohosts on the ABC News program The View, as she confirmed today by suggesting that the imaginary climate crisis caused an earthquake and the eclipse.

First, she made fun of Christians:

Hostin, a self-proclaimed devout Catholic, laughed about how their studio makeup artist “put on her coat” and “ran down the hallway” during the earthquake saying “Jesus is coming” and “the rapture is here.”

Then Hostin tied the earthquake, multiple cicada broods, and today’s eclipse all together under a moonbat unified field theory:

“All those things together would maybe lead one to believe that either climate change exists, or something is really going on,” she proclaimed.

What’s going on is leftist social engineers are using their control of the media not merely to indoctrinate but to reduce the population to mental retardation.

People who watch that show vote.

Media Lies Straight to Our Faces Again

The media starts deceiving right in the headlines. For example:

Las Vegas Woman Accused of ‘Random’ Murder Was Paroled Months Ago

A bald-faced lie told in the headline is farcically maintained throughout the story:

Las Vegas Metro police arrested Kayla Alery, 27, on charges including open murder and assault with a deadly weapon shortly after the shooting at an apartment complex…

Witnesses at the scene provided officers with an initial suspect description of a man with facial and neck tattoos… Officers were then able to locate Alery nearby. However, when police found her, she was identified as a woman in her 20s.

Actually, Kayla Alery is a man with facial and neck tattoos. Fortunately, photos are provided so that we can see this for ourselves.

Alery most recently served prison time on two arson charges, records said. A judge had sentenced her to 14-36 years in prison. In August, the parole board granted her a release effective Dec. 5, 2023, records said.

No doubt the trans angle helped him get early parole. Membership has its privileges, especially in classes favored by our moonbat rulers.

Thanks do go to the author for implicitly admitting that letting criminals run free is getting people killed, and that legal restrictions on the firearms we use to protect ourselves from them are not the answer. However, he goes out of his way to dishonestly characterize Alery as a woman:

Alery was allegedly inside the complex checking car doors to see if they were unlocked… Several people notified the apartment leasing manager who then asked maintenance workers to go and search for the reported suspect and get them off the property.

“Them” means Alery.

While workers searched for that person, two men inside a carpet cleaning company van were parked at the complex… Police then stated that the female suspect quickly approached the van and pulled out her gun and shot the van’s driver.

Nowhere in the story is it acknowledged that Alery is not really a woman.

The appalling senselessness of his most recent crime earns Mr. Alery a spot in the Transsexual Violence Hall of Horrors.

NBC News Fires Ronna McDaniel Within Days

That didn’t last long:

Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) and former President Donald Trump ripped NBC as “weak” and “an absolute disgrace” after the network dropped former Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel four days after announcing her hiring as a contributor.

NBC announced on Tuesday that McDaniel was out after multiple hosts — including Chuck Todd, Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski, and Nicolle Wallace — criticized the network’s decision to hire the former RNC leader.

Even Ronna the RINO as she is sometimes called is too far to the right for the propagandists staffing NBC News. They have their standards, after all — or rather one standard: total conformity to leftist ideology.

NBC News Chairman Cesar Conde explains why McDaniel will not be a contributor after all:

“No organization, particularly a newsroom, can succeed unless it is cohesive and aligned. Over the last few days, it has become clear that this appointment undermines that goal.”

At least they are finally dropping the pretense of objectivity, which was an insult to our intelligence. NBC News speaks for the moonbat fever swamps that comprise the Democratic Party’s base. Any other viewpoint would undermine the Narrative.
