Where are the media

It feels like a public service announcement just to say watch this Tucker Carlson segment because you *may not* find out on your nightly news that thousands of national guards are flowing in to Washington DC (still) for unstated reasons. In Biden’s first week in office the US military has also moved in to Syria. Apparently, Iran is now within weeks of getting nuclear weapons. We can all see where this is going.

The democrats have realized finally that the enemy is within — but they aren’t talking about the junk journalists or the corrupt politicians — they mean congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene.

    Anyone calling this a conspiracy need to remember they aren’t hiding anything , the press just aren’t reporting it .

      It’s drawing a fine line not to call it a conspiracy, as it is quite obvious the bulk of the media has been involved. wouldn’t that be a conspiracy, many are going against their charters, requiring balance in reporting?

        We could be splitting hairs but if there’s no attempt to hide something like this and MSM won’t report it I say no conspiracy just junk journalism going along for the ride .

          Oh hey now: Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor-Greene is only weeks away from developing Nuclear Weapons.

          Tucker draws everybodies’ attention to this extreme risk!

          That makes her so incredibly … umm … dangerous.

          Tucker is by no means a junk journalist, not like Nancy Pelosi who would be impeaching half the western hemisphere if she could ever think of it. Junk Congresscritters like her are more of a threat, much more.

          No its a conspiracy, and obviously so, and our lives depend on us stopping this nonsense and mental gutlessness.

      As Vox Day puts it, liars only tell the truth when they’re denying it.

      Claudia Tenney Finally Wins 22nd-NY Seat in Congress for GOP … Not So Fast

      A New York state trial court judge has ruled that Republican Claudia Tenney has won New York’s 22nd Congressional District election, an outcome that has been tied up in court since November. New York Judge Scott J. DelConte issued a final order finding that Tenney gained votes after her narrow November win, thus increasing her lead to 123 votes over Anthony Brindisi and thus is the winner of the November election.

      Despite Tenney’s victory, Democrat campaign lawyer Marc Elias has become the new Lin Wood – tying up the victory in courts and denying the obvious win for Tenney.

      After Tenney’s win, Elias’ law firm sought a stay of the ruling, effectively blocking Tenney from taking her seat.

      In Tenney’s case, Democrat lawyers only wanted 69 provisional ballots counted out of hundreds that were at issue. Naturally, those 69 were registered Democrats.

      Tenney’s legal team opposed the selective counting and a court in New York ordered all of the appropriate provisional ballots to be counted – an outcome that handed Tenney the win yesterday.

      Not so fast.

      In his best Kraken impersonation, Elias’ legal team vowed to gum up the outcome further by seeking a stay of Tenney’s win and filing what will prove to be a frivolous appeal.

      Ironically, Elias just criticized the same approach in the presidential election:

      Tenney has won a seat in Congress, but Elias and his team of 54 – that’s right, fifty-four – Democrat lawyers are trying to delegitimize her win with a frivolous stay and appeal. In January, interfering with the legitimate outcome of an election would get you kicked off Twitter and banned from polite company.

      In December, seeking a stay to block the legitimate outcome of an election would be an affront to Democracy. In February, when a Republican wins a House seat, seeking a stay and appeal is just a way to run up billable hours to the Brindisi campaign.

      All of this illustrates a simple truth that everyone understood all along, both Republicans and Democrats. When Republicans win, the 54 lawyers at Perkins Coie like Marc Elias will leave no stone unturned to snatch a win from defeat. Just ask Norm Coleman in Minnesota.

      But when Republicans exercise the same prerogative after an election, democracy is under threat. The depths of hypocrisy are bottomless.

        Good to read the Democrats have taken a leaf out of Trump’s book and are trying every trick they can think of just like Trump did with Brad Raffensperger and Mike Pence.

        Maybe the Democrats are taking a leaf out of Trump’s book and are emulating his approach to Mike Pence and Brad Raffensperger

        The post to which I was referring has been removed. Is it because my views are different from those of the majority of commenters to this blog?

        I’m not certain at all what an “appropriate provisional ballot” might be, however when I have worked on Australian elections, all provisional votes are set aside, and checked – to make sure the person lodging the vote has the right to do so (being enrolled in the claimed electorate is the most common issue).

        What criteria did the judge use to include “all” the provisional ballots? I find it very odd that common or garden judges are involved in disputed returns … it seems ripe for incompetence and/or partisanship

        in Australia only the High Court hears these things, as it should be.

      Yeah its a conspiracy. Stop making excuses. Bannon keeps on putting out the nonsense meme that there are no conspiracies but also there are no coincidences. Well he’s being tactical. Of course he knows better. He has a radio show and a war against the CCP to run.

    I’ve posted John Harrington’s quote before and make no apology for repeating it for it’s still timely and worth keeping in mind:

    ‘Treason doth never prosper, what’s the reason? For if it prosper, none dare call it treason.’

    Maybe some other words are more applicable descriptions such as “collusion” or ” coincidence ” but the net effect is the same regardless. With many of the actions of the new administration being kept from view, unexplained, and not justified, in the MSM, it is still censorship by omission, which denies people the right to hear, and is just as underhanded and manipulative as denying people the right to speak.

      Just stop the denial man. Of course its a conspiracy. And you cannot fight back by pretending that bad people aren’t at war against us. Conspiracy is the best word for what is happening because that is what is happening.; Do something. Get some testosterone to put in your coffee. Start jumping into ice water in the mornings. Just sharpen up. Stop the feebleness; its too late for that now.

    Well, if there was a Mentsch, I missed it in the uk media, having read it earlier: I’d been hoping that from the outset, it was a loaded trap set to keep folk IN – maybe a time delay from the Trump admin ….. who really knows? Maybe the Biggest rodent has arrived yet: There’s a dark art in trapping!

    Off topic maybe but there is an Australian connection. In Peter Schweitzer’s book ” Profiles in Corruption” he investigates Bernie Sanders among other equally corrupt and hypocritical Democrats. During his 2016 campaign for President Bernie skirted various political donation limits causing the Federal Election Commission to investigate. One of the means discovered by the FEC was that the “Australian Labor Party sent a delegation of volunteers to help the Sanders campaign. This was also a clear violation of election rules because the Labor Party had paid for their flights. Beyond the reach of the FEC, Australians in Sydney held ‘phone banking parties’ and called tens of thousands of Americans encouraging them to vote for Sanders. As one Australian paper reported it,’the group would use Google Hangouts to call Americans with an automated dialing service to gain support for the Vermont Senator.'”

    Back on topic. I was intrigued by the segment in Carlson’s show where they discussed using social media to organise a revolt against the hedge funds. who I see as the complete antithesis to fair and open trade. Shares are honorable but most of their derivatives are designed to manipulate the share price away from it’s intrinsic value. The people who do trade in derivatives do not add value to the company but they can damage it. It should be illegal particularly short selling.

    With a little luck, It Is Time!

    If the Real President yells “Follow Me!, all them boys and girls in the green suits better yell, “Yes Sir!”

    The Coup is destroying our Republic. Our nation is destined to be a large Detroit or Baltimore ghetto if this continues. There is nothing to loose.

    Tucker? Yeah…

    With your platform, you could’ve done something about this long ago. But you chose, instead, to take the other side.

    But you chose wrong. Morally and ethically. If you had got to OANN or NewsMax you would’ve had Carte Blanche.

    Welcome to the party, pal. Seems to be good for business, though. Hmmmmmm…..

    Anyone found an easy way to record this stuff, eg Tucker’s 01-02-2021 session above? No right-click link, not easily found elsewhere. Could be on the Wayback machine but that would be vulnerable if it is in the USA. My (rather time-consuming) solution is to record just the video window using Flashback Recorder (free), convert to mp4 (485MB). I guess encrypt with 7Z, hide it somewhere comes next? At this rate, it won’t be long before “rubber hose” decryption gets used.

    “Where are the media?”
    When the Whitehouse is Republican they all want to be Woodward and Bernstein. When it’s Democrat they are all Monica Lewinsky!

    Remember, if the Green Machine honors the oath to Commissar Xiden instead of to the Constitution and the Republic, they ain’t “ours”. Play that down as you see fit.

    For once the Dems are right about something. But Greene and Linseed Graham Cracker are the reasons the Dems won. After losing in 2016 Dems pedaled back on shooting youths over plant leaves. God’s Own Prohibitionists stood pat and pressured Trump ever deeper into the enslavement of women in violation of Amendments 9, 13, 14 and (this just in) 19. Politicians with any gasp of reality will observe that papist Ireland and Argentina have recently escaped the tar baby of Comstockist prohibition of birth control. If to that you add the realization that ALL important Crashes and Depressions have since 1907 chosen to reveal themselves under God’s Own Prohibitionist administrations, their loss is not the cause for rejoicing a Libertarian administration would bring, but it’s certainly the lesser of two nationalsocialist evils.

    Apparently, Iran is now within weeks of getting nuclear weapons.

    How many times have we heard that before?

    I’m very confident that I can predict we will still be discussing this in a few weeks and Iran won’t have any nuclear weapons. Whenever there is a rearrangement of priorities in Washington you hear all the “Oh this is so important!!” stories as the various factions try to establish themselves in the budget queue.
