Trump Pravda defends ‘enemy of the people’ attack on the media

Trump Pravda defends enemy of the people attack on the media

Trump has been on the road a lot lately, campaigning for his 2020 re-election under the guise of supporting GOP candidates on the ballot next week and regurgitating his 2016 campaign talking points.

When he isn’t blaming Democrats for his economic failures and his broken promises on things like repealing Obamacare, defunding Planned Parenthood, rescinding DACA, and fixing the border, he plays his media is “the enemy of the American people” card.

As was the case in 2016, the worshippers at the Church of Trump are eating it up like a Baptist at a Sunday afternoon potluck. Unfortunately, as was also the case in 2016, the so-called conservative media has bellied up to the table to partake of the delicacies served at Trump’s political potluck.

Lately, Trump has been leveraging the recent shooting tragedy at a Pennsylvania synagogue and the pipe-bomb scare against Democrats and CNN into an opportunity to attack the media and blame them for these tragic events.

In a recent Axios interview where Trump announced his plan to use an executive order to ban birthplace citizenship, he was asked about the negative repercussions of his calling the press the “enemy of the people.”

“I think I’m doing a service [by attacking the press] when people write stories about me that are so wrong. I know what I do good and what I do bad. I really get it, okay? I really get it better than anybody in the whole world.

“It’s my only form of fighting back. I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t do that.”

So, how did the so-called conservative media respond? Trump’s morning intel team at FOX & Friends got right to work defending the boss.

“Clearly what he doesn’t like, is he does not like stories that he feels are not fair to what he is doing.” – Steve Doocy

“How frustrating would it be if you are the President of the United States and every single time you turn on the TV on most of the channels they are misconstruing what you say? You know your heart and you know your words and your voice and you watch what other people report on what you say and it’s completely different than what you mean. That has to be frustrating. That’s why he is calling it fake news. He’s saying if you don’t want to be called the enemy, then get the story right, be accurate and report the story the way I want it reported.” – Ainsley Earhardt

“I think that’s a good point.” – Brian Kilmeade

I don’t call ’em Trump Pravda for nothing, folks!

Trump’s use of the same propaganda principles used by Joseph Goebbels during the rise of Nazi Germany has succeeded in helping him distract America away from his lies and policy failures. And with the help of the so-called conservative media, it looks like he’ll continue to reap benefits as 2020 approaches.

Meanwhile, the egomaniacal narcissist in the White House continues to destroy our God-given, constitutionally protected rights.

DDoS and Twitter attack in same day. Someone’s not happy with us.

DDoS and Twitter attack in same day Someones not happy with us

I should have known when the the Twitter account for the site was suddenly permanently banned that something was fishy. Unfortunately, Twitter is funny that way, so I didn’t put 2 and 2 together until the site itself went down.

When you operate a site that tells the truth, there’s bound to be someone offended. That’s the nature of the game, especially for a news site that focuses on conservative media, that holds a Judeo-Christian worldview, and that isn’t afraid to say things that may not be popular with, well, most people.

Our web provider was great. They recognized the attacks and took steps to stop them, but the attackers are clever. When they couldn’t brute-force hack into the admin, they went the DDoS route. I’m not going to get into the technical details because they’re over my head, but from what I can tell from the logs and in talking to our host, it wasn’t a casual attack. They’ve been trying to hack the back end for days and when that proved too challenging,they went straight for the shutdown attempt.

As for Twitter, I’m not even going to bother. The site and one of the authors (that I’ve seen so far) were banned. I switched the site to link to my personal Twitter account. Been meaning to spend more energy there anyway.

This is reason #17 why we’re so badly in need of donations from our readers. We have big plans for the site that include paid editors, writers, graphics, and a tech person (which we obviously need). I need to move the site to a stronger hosting tier, one that can withstand attacks like today. The one we’re using isn’t cheap, but it’s not top-of-the-line.

When you’re on the right side of the political aisle, there will be people who try to stop you. We will persevere, but we certainly can use the help.

To paraphrase a famous quote, if you’re not making enough people mad, then you’re doing it wrong. We will not crumble under the weight of heavy opposition. Fighting the left and their media puppets is a task that’s too important to let go.

The complete fraud that is socialism

The complete fraud that is socialism

Once again we are witness to the age-old scam of socialism with Leftists making promises to attain power that can never be fulfilled.

Long before Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago exposed the systematic oppression, torture, incarceration and deliberate mass murder that are the hallmarks of socialistic slavery. James A. Michener documented the 1956 Hungarian uprising against communism in his book ‘The Bridge at Andau’. While both are great literary works, ‘The Bridge at Andau’ laid bare the complete fraud that is the collectivist ideologies in creating a ‘Heaven on Earth’ or ‘worker’s paradise’ that never comes to fruition.

The selling of socialistic slavery to a new generation tends to follow a certain type of ‘progress’. Promises are made for all kinds of largess ranging from Free Healthcare, Free Housing, Free College, Free food to even Free income. All paid for with other people’s money. Never mind that It’s impossible to fulfill all of these wondrous asseverations. Appearances must be made to at least begin the process, so the ever-present task of wealth redistribution begins at the point of a gun.

This is also why the Socialist-Left obsesses over gun confiscation and the suppression of free speech. It is imperative for the Leftists to disarm the people since they generally object to having their property stolen from them. However, we are getting ahead of ourselves, this is to document how this exploitation of the people has ‘progressed’ in other collectivist enclaves to better understand how this crime against the people is perpetrated.

Why do collectivist regimes always require secret police apparatus and the suppression of Liberty?

This question was detailed in The Bridge at Andau in the chapters on the ‘AVO man’. In which he discusses the secret police organisation of the Hungarian Communists, the AVO (Allamvedelmi Osztaly). He bluntly asked and answered the question:

Why must communism depend on such dregs of society?

No matter on what elevated plane communism begins its program of total dictatorship. it sooner or later runs into such economic and social problems that some strong-arm force is required to keep the civil population under control.

As is the case now as it was then, a nation’s Socialist-Left will promise just about anything to attain power over the people:

When communism is wooing the workers in Csepel, all kinds of exaggerated promises are made if they seem likely to awaken men’s aspirations and their cupidity. These promises are couched in such simple terms and such effective symbols that they become immediate goals of the revolution.

Review briefly what communist agitators had once promised the Hungarians who appear in this book: consumer goods such as they had never known before, increased wages. increased social benefits, shorter hours of work, improved education for everyone, a greater social freedom, and a government directly responsible to the working classes. Under communism such promises were never even remotely capable of attainment.

[Our Emphasis]
If all of that sounds eerily familiar, it’s because that’s part of a very old song and dance that has deceived many a generation into enslaving themselves under socialism. Consider this recent story from the Associated Press:

Democrats lurch left on top policies as 2020 primary begins

NEW YORK (AP) — Democratic presidential contender Julian Castro launched his campaign by pledging support for “Medicare for All,” free universal preschool, a large public investment in renewable energy and two years of free college for all Americans.
….

New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, who is expected to launch his presidential campaign soon, has sponsored legislation to create a federal jobs guarantee program in several communities across America.

The pilot program… could ultimately transform the U.S. labor market by providing well-paid government employment with benefits for anyone who wants it.

[Our Emphasis]

As Margaret Thatcher so aptly surmised, eventually they will run out of other people’s money. In our case in the states, that is already the situation given the enormous debt and unfunded liabilities reaching into the stratosphere of trillions of dollars. Of course, this hasn’t deterred committed collectivists such as Democratic mayor Bill de Blasio who recently stated that ‘There’s plenty of money in the world… It’s just in the wrong hands!’ Never mind that it is morally wrong to steal the property of others or that once a society turns down the dead-end of socialism there will always be more people wanting more money from those who have it.

Wealth redistribution scams will always wreck the economy. A socialist regime that nationalizes the economy can never function better than one of economic Liberty. Soon enough everything breaks down, the people see through the lies and the government has to start breaking heads. Thus it is imperative that they have previously confiscated the people’s guns and made it illegal to defend themselves.

The Takeaway

Socialistic schemes always run contrary to basic human nature. Rewarding someone for not working will always result in less work. Conversely, punishing someone for working will also result in less work.

This basic logic of human nature seems to be lost on Leftists. But perhaps it is not. They have to know their schemes have never and will never work. And yet they still try to impose them on everyone else. Perhaps they know of the epic fraud they are continually perpetrating on society, but they don’t care. That will be the subject of our next installment.

Mark Levin invites Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to have a conversation on his show

Mark Levin invites Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to have a conversation on his show

Conservative commentator Mark Levin joined Sean Hannity on Fox News last night to discuss progressive mainstream media. As one might expect based on this recent obsession with the left’s favorite millennial, the conversation quickly turned Representative Alexandra Ocasia-Cortez (D-NY).

After lambasting her for a few minutes, he offered her an interview.

“Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, please come on my Fox show on Sunday,” Levin said, addressing her directly in the camera. “I want to talk to you. I want to you to you about capitalism versus Marxism and socialism. I want to talk about some of your ideas. I know you go these slobbering interviews and so forth. I promise to be respectful. Have enough guts and enough intelligence.”

Levin, who has written several books on the problems in America, including the rise of socialism, is no stranger to addressing the younger generations. His book, Plunder and Deceit: Big Government’s Exploitation of Young People and the Future, could have been written about Ocasia-Cortez herself.

“Because my theory, Sean Hannity, is this: she is a media creation,” he continued. “That’s all she is.”
