COVID Conferences Carried By Fox, Youtube, Facebook — The once-admired traditional media is no longer giving live coverage to President Trump’s daily updates about the COVID-19 pandemic which, as of now, is expected to kill 100,000 Americans and that is in the best case estimate.
Why? Because the President is looking good in them. Why is he looking good? Because he is appearing humble, responsible and is clearly taking this crisis seriously. As many, if not more, questions are answered by the team he assembled whether it be Vice President Mike Pence who is tasked with administering it; Carlisle-native Dr. Deborah Leah Birx, an internationally recognized expert on vaccine research who served as Barack Obama’s Ambassador at Large and U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator; and Dr. Anthony Stephen Fauci, whom the New York Times has called the “the nation’s leading expert on infectious diseases” and who directed the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases under Obama.
The traditional media is a disgrace and no longer practices journalism.
The decision to cut off the updates is especially bizarre as they are widely watched and there are a myriad of options to see them. Fox News and Fox Business carry them as does C-Span , and we are pretty sure you can see it on One America News Network if you get it. Further you can find it on Facebook, Twitter, Breitbart and Youtube.
What the lame old media has chosen to do is divisive and extremely irresponsible.
Today’s (April 1) update is scheduled for 5 p.m.

Kung Flu Fighting — If you missed the just ended presidential Covid-19 update, a silly person pretending to be a journalist snippily asked President Trump about a report that someone in the White House referred to the disease as the Kung Flu. The President asked her who. She didn’t know. The President asked her to repeat the phrase. She got flustered. The president was Kung Flu fighting. His quips were fast as lightning. It was a little bit frightening. But he fought with expert timing.
And for what it’s worth, we never heard the phrase until the silly person pretending to be a journalist brought it up. We think she coined a new name for the disease which will come into common use.
Brawndo Brian Williams Heralds Idiocracy With Report On Bloomberg Spending –Highly paid MSNBC news professional Brian Williams discussed Michael Bloomberg’s failed presidential bid with highly paid New York Timesnews professional Mara Gay.
“Somebody tweeted recently, that with the money he spent he could have given every American a million dollars,” Ms. Gay opined.
“I got it, let’s put it on the screen,” said Williams. “When I read it, tonight, on social media, it all became clear. Bloomberg spent $500 million on ads. The US population is 327 million — don’t tell us if you are ahead of us on the math — he could have given each American $1 million and have had lunch money left over. It’s an incredible way of putting it.”
A more incredible way of putting it is that some still trust NBC and the New York Times as sources of information.
What Bloomie spent equals about $1.53 per American. It’s about enough for a can of Brawndo for each of us. We would have been charitable and given ours to our Democrat friends who still read the New York Times or watch an NBC product. It’s what plants crave.

What happens when the news simply becomes an extension/arm of a political party?
Fact becomes fiction?
Fiction becomes fact?
When does news become propaganda?
How does the average person, who is under constant financial stress (by design), find time to research and discern fact v fiction?
Majority of people more prone to believe someone in power sitting behind a big brand ‘news’ name?
Do people [human psyche] tend to follow the ‘majority/mainstream viewpoint’ in fear of being isolated and/or shunned?
‘Mainstream’ is used for a reason [dominate trend in opinion].
[If majority of people believe ‘x’ then ‘x’ must be validated / true]
Why do ‘mainstream’ media heads, within different orgs, always use the same keywords and/or catch phrases?
Coordinated? By who? Outside entity providing instructions?
Do they count on the fact that people [human psyche] are more prone to believe something if heard over-and-over again by different ‘trusted’ sources?
Do ‘echo chamber’ tactics provide validation / credibility to the topic/point being discussed?
Threat to intellectual freedom?
Would control over[of] these institutions/organizations allow for the mass control of a populations viewpoint re: a desired topic?
Read again – digest.
Would control over[of] these institutions/organizations allow for the mass control of a populations viewpoint re: a desired topic?
Why, after the election of 2016, did [D]’s and media corps jumpstart a [coordinated & planned] divisive blitz intended to create falsehoods re: illegitimacy of election, character assassination of POTUS through sexism, racism, every other ‘ism’?
Pre/post 2016 election?
Why were violent [masked] terror orgs such as Antifa immediately created/funded?
Why were these orgs tasked w/ immediate intimidation/shut down of any pro-POTUS rally[s] and/or events?
Why were marches immediately organized to counter and silence pro-POTUS rally[s] and/or events?
Why were marches immediately organized which divided people into sex/gender, race, [ism]?
When you control the levers of news dissemination, you control the narrative.
Control of the narrative = power
When you are blind, what do you see?
They want you divided.
Divided by religion.
Divided by sex.
Divided by political affiliation.
Divided by class.
When you are divided, and angry, and controlled, you target those ‘different’ from you, not those responsible [controllers].
Divided you are weak.
Divided you pose no threat to their control.
When ‘non-dogmatic’ information becomes FREE & TRANSPARENT it becomes a threat to those who attempt to control the narrative and/or stable [livestock kept – sheep].
When you are awake, you stand on the outside of the stable (‘group-think’ collective), and have ‘free thought’.
“Free thought” is a philosophical viewpoint which holds that positions regarding truth should be formed on the basis of logic, reason, and empiricism, rather than authority, tradition, revelation, or dogma.
THIS REPRESENTS A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO THE CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
Heroic Rush Limbaugh Gets Deserved Honor — Rush Limbaugh, an American treasure, announced on his Feb. 3 radio show that he has advanced stage four lung cancer. The next day he was invited by President Trump to sit in a place of honor at the State of Union address. To his surprise he was given the Presidential Medal of Freedom, our highest civilian honor, then and there.
He deserved it. He has been a defender of truth and freedom for three decades and his withstood all manner of lies, calumny and hate.
He has been called a racist. He has been on the air three hours a day five days a week for 30 years and we have listened to him for much of that time. He has never said anything remotely implying that those of one particular skin color were somehow inferior to another or deserve less civil liberty. Those levying the charge actually had to make up quotes to get traction, and the false defenders of justice in our media conspired with them.
He was called a misogynist. Why? Because he was one of the few that had the guts to call out on the carpet a 30-year-old activist who demanded the Catholic Church pay for her birth control. And because he calls bitter, hate-filled bullies who happen to be female demanding unjust privilege regardless of suffering caused to others “nazis”, a perfect allusion few others were willing to dare to make.
Michealene Risley Robert Epstein And They Can’t Kill Us All — Dr. Robert Epstein is one of the world’s most prominent psychologist. He has a degree from Harvard, tenure as editor-in-chief of Psychology Today, appearances on numerous media outlets over many years, and is the founder of the Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies. Epstein says Google manipulated at least 2.6 million votes towards Hillary Clinton in 2016 and could push 15 million to the Democrat in 2020.
Yesterday (Jan. 20), he tweetedI briefed a group of state AGs about #Google‘s power to rig elections, one of them said, “I think you’re going to die in an accident in a few months.
On Dec. 30, his wife, Misti Vaughn, was killed in an accident when her Ford Ranger spun out of control into the path of a truck in California. She was 29.
On Jan. 4, Epstein tweetedBTW, although losing Misti is devastating for me – there will never be another Misti in my life, after all – I AM STILL NOT SUICIDAL. Hear that, #Google? Hear that, #Hillary?
On the other hand, there is journalist Michealene Risley.
Mrs. Risley, who won awards for her documentaries regarding human trafficking and sex abuse, described on Quora why she quit activism in 2013 after a strange experience involving her Apple iPhone.:
In October of 2013, my husband and I were going to a local concert to see two friends perform. On our way back, I called home to check on the kids, and was talking to my one son, when I suddenly felt this incredible burning pain sensations throughout my body. I screamed and dropped the phone. The pain continued for about 10 minutes. It was horrible. Turns out that I was electrocuted by the current running through my cell phone. I was freaked out and called a doctor. She basically told me that if I called her, there was nothing else she could do. However, that kind of shock can stimulate a heart attack. I was LUCKY.
So I am thinking that APPLE has a problem with the car charger. And I am mad as hell. I am a good letter writer, and wrote a note to Tim Cook at Apple, scanned it to him on October 22. (Full disclosure, my last documentary-APPLE engineers were GREAT to me.) I basically wrote what happened, and how I wanted to share my experience with him on the product asap, as I believed the product to be dangerous. At that time, I didn’t know if it was an apple manufactured product, or a third party product, my goal was to alert Apple to the situation in case they needed to remove these products from the shelves.
I didn’t get much of a response from the CEO’s office and called the APPLE hotline, which was worse-they sent me to Alabama, where they offered me a Genius bar appointment. I went back and forth trying to get someone to pay attention to what I was saying. This all happened over a three day period.
Completely frustrated, I finally just sent the original copy of the letter to Tim Cook and kept a copy on my desk. I figured if they wanted to do something, they knew how to reach me. A few days later, when I walked into my office, there was a note on the copy of the letter. It was on a little yellow “stickie” and it said, “CAREFUL” in uneven caps. The word careful was underlined four times. I immediately went to my husband and said “Why woud you write a note on the top of my note to Apple?” He looked at my strangely and said “I have no idea what you are talking about.” I showed him the note, (Which I still have). Nope, not him. The only other occupants in our house were kids, and they weren’t the least interested in a letter to the CEO of Apple.
So here was a note from someone who came into my house and actually searched my desk to find the letter. Think about it, how would they know I wrote a letter, unless they were listening to my calls. (Very easy to do in my office space) They took one of my stickies to write the warning. Pretty brazen.
At that point, my husband and I realized that something was terribly wrong. Someone was obviously listening to my calls and had been in our house. Perhaps more than once. We didn’t lock our doors, we kept our keys in our cars, it has been pretty safe where we lived. No more. I went to the local Sheriff. He explained to me when someone wants you to have an “accident” they can rewire your car phone charger so you can be electrocuted. AS we sorted through what we knew, other things that didn’t make sense. (My passport disappeared) we realized that someone had actually tried to kill me. After their failed attempt, they came into my office and left me a note to ensure that I knew this was not an accident. How CREEPY is that?
At that time, I was working on a few story ideas for a new documentary. One was a situation happening in East Palo Alto and another on Locust’s destroying the food supply in Madagascar. I also thought about the last documentary that I did which was airing on SHOWTIME. All three of them had elements where I was challenging a powerful government or major corporation.
I thought long and hard about what my options were. I was clear that I could never forgive myself if anything happened to my kids or my spouse. We immediately put camera’s in and around our property to record any and all movement. (deer included) The sheriff’s office had our house in their daily route to make sure everyone was safe.
I also closed my non-profit-I decided despite loving my work on human rights issues, I didn’t ever want my work to endanger anyone that I loved. Things have calmed down since I stopped working on any projects. I consider myself very lucky.
****Thank you everyone for your interest and support, I am humbled. I want to give you an update. My youngest is almost out of the house. My two older kids are in the world and remarkable-each in their own ways. SO lucky I am!! I have decided to change my name back to the one I was born with. It feels a bit separate from the one my kids have AND gives me some space to not worry about the association. Plus it also gives them the freedom to choose if they want to participate in speaking out, or not. I have no vested interest either way.
My response today in 2019 is very very different than in 2013 when I responded from fear. Not only am I starting to fight again, but want to live the rest of my life as a BAD-ASS. If I have one day left or 67 years, I don’t care.
I have seen so many other people wake up to what is happening in our world, to the greed and selfishness. I have seen so many people horrified at the terrible things we do as human beings.
I am not standing alone anymore. There are many of us. Honestly, they can’t kill us all. THEY CAN’T KILL US ALL.
That’s the good news. She is back in the fight. Seriously, how many of you think Jeffrey Epstein killed himself?

Nicholas Sandmann Millions Dollar Smile or the expression you make when you get CNN to give you millions for doing nothing.
The Catholic kid from Covington, Kentucky sued the fake news outlet for $275 million for the destructive smear job it tried to pull when he was confronted by an abusive progressive protestor as he waited for the bus to take him home from a school trip to the Jan. 18, 2019 March for Life Rally in Washington D.C.
It was announced yesterday (Jan. 7) that CNN settled albeit the amount of the settlement was not released. We heard one report it was for $25 million. We suspect it was certainly in the eight figures.
Sandmann also has pending nine figure lawsuits against the Washington Post and NBC, and may sue numerous other media outlets, institutions and celebrities.
Michael Goodwin, a New York Post columnist who began his journalism career at The New York Times, last month wrote a two-part commentary that chronicled the long, steady erosion of reporting integrity. Although Goodwin focused on the Times, his observations that bias has become common in the mainstream media easily applies to many publications. Editors who could once be counted on to, as Goodwin wrote, veer copy toward the middle, gradually became as much of a problem as the reporters whose work they review.
Nowhere is journalism bias more blatantly on display than in immigration stories. Even though polling shows that at least half of all Americans want less immigration, most stories tell only the expansion side, and in the process leave their readers under-informed.
Case in point: Fortune Magazine, the respected, 90-year-old business publication, recently did a story about one of most controversial programs that’s hurtful to U.S. tech workers, the Optional Practical Training program. In brief, OPT allows international students on F-1 visas to remain in the U.S. and work for at least a year, and longer if they have earned degrees in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM).
Although there are multiple reasonable arguments that can be made in opposition to OPT, none of them appeared in reporter Nicole Goodkind’s article. Among OPT’s flaws that Goodkind omitted are that OPT is not congressionally approved, yet it has ballooned into the nation’s largest guest worker program.
OPT is a voracious American job killer. Department of Homeland Securitydata shows that, since 2015 and through May 2017, nearly 500,000 students received OPT, and another 150,000 have STEM extensions. That’s 650,000 good jobs being held now by foreign nationals versus qualified American workers. There’s a powerful incentive for tech companies to hire OPT foreign workers. A 15 percent discount has allowed multinational corporations to evade at least $20 billion to $30 billion in FICA taxes over the years. The OPT worker doesn’t pay FICA either, and therefore doesn’t contribute to Social Security or Medicare.
In her 1,200-word article, Goodkind glowingly cited five pro-OPT sources, including major corporations, that profit from the program. Among them are Google and immigration advocacy groups like the Mark Zuckerberg-founded FWD.us. Goodkind wrote that an amicus brief FWD.us filed supporting OPT read like: “a who’s who of Silicon Valley. Tech giants like Google, Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Airbnb, Bloomberg, Intel, Microsoft, Tesla, Twitter, Uber, and Zillow….”
Yet Goodkind quoted only one critic, John Miano, a lawyer and expert on the effect of foreign labor on technology workers. Miano has worked on behalf of workers and pro-American worker organizations and for more than a decade has challenged OPT in federal court. Goodkind assassinated Miano’s character and that of his associates. Goodkind quoted Miano after she had inaccurately and wrongly marginalized him.
Miano told me, however, that if Goodkind had done the due diligence once considered honest journalism’s bedrock instead of lazily relying on FWD.usshe would have seen that the money trail explains everything. “The tech industry spends tens of millions of dollars each month lobbying for more foreign labor and to preserve their ability to replace working American with that foreign labor,” said Miano.
Fortune once was a highly respected magazine that would never have allowed slanted copy like Goodkind’s to get past the first editorial layer, let alone get published. By passing over OPT’s damaging effects on American workers, Goodkind abandoned the principals that journalists themselves established years ago. The 110-year-old Society for Professional Journalists’ ethics code warns reporters to “avoid advocacy,” advice which Goodkind ignored. As former Washington Post ombudsman E.R. Shipp wrote in her column “In Pursuit of Fairness,” no story is fair if it omits facts of major importance and significance. Goodkind disregarded that basic, most obvious rule.
Reporters like Goodkind need to remember that the full story – he said, she said – is always more compelling than a cheerleading story that quickly becomes tedious.

Twitter Bans Hegseth For Journalism — Fox News journalist Pete Hegseth, who received a Bronze Star and Combat Infantryman Badge for his service in Iraq, was temporarily banned from Twitter Saturday, Dec. 7, for posted screenshots of the manifesto thought to have been written by Mohammed Alshamrani, the Saudi military student who killed three and wounded 12 in a shooting rampage Friday at the Navy Station Pensacola on Friday.
The manifesto had been originally posted on Twitter but had been removed by the big tech firm after the shooting. It was traced to Alshamrani by the respected Site Intelligence Group Enterprises.
The Tweet said:
O American People,
I’m not against you for just being American. I don’t hate you because your freedoms, I hate you because every day you supporting funding and committing crimes not only against Muslims but also humanity. I’m against evil, and America as a whole has turned into a nation of evil. What I see from America is the supporting of Israel which is invasion of Muslim countrie. I see invasion of many countries by it’s troops, I see Guantanamo Bay. I see cruise missiles, cluster bombs and UAV.
You say anything wrong in reporting it? Do you believe ignorance is good? Twitter apparently does.
Saudi prince and billionaire Alwaleed bin Talal was a major investor in Twitter. In 2015, he owned 34.9 million shares in it which put him ahead of CEO and co-founder Jack Dorsey. He appears to have lost it following his arrest Nov. 4, 2017 arrest by his relatives.
A year later journalist Turki Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Jasser was tortured to death in a Saudi jail for criticizing the ruling family via a secret Twitter account. How did the tyrants learn of the account? Via spies at Twitter’s regional headquarter in Dubai.
And on Nov. 7 this year, it was reported that two Twitter employees were arrested by the Feds for spying for the Saudi government about users critical of the Saudi government.
Yeah, get on Gab.
