The Media says 52% of the people in this country are just like the ones in this clip.
Warning: Bad Language Content
Just for my own edification, because so much happened yesterday it's hard to keep it straight.
First, Wiki Leaks basically confirmed that Seth Rich, the DNC staffer murdered on the street in D.C. was the source of the DNC emails they published. Rich was a disgruntled Bernie supporter who wanted people to know the nomination was being stolen by DNC top level executives. First, the D.C. police called it a robbery. Then the man's father pointed out his wallet, with cash and credit cards, was untouched. His expensive watch was not taken. Now the D.C. police are calling it "uncategorized."
But remember when those emails came out, Hillary and the MSM criticized Donald Trump, saying the Russians were responsible. They deflected the content of the emails to a large extent, and damaged Trumps standing. But it was just more lies.
You notice there have been no retractions on anyone's part, and there has been only minimal coverage of this story on MSM.
It was one of the last brief segments on CBS news last night.
ABC gave it a passing glance. They spent more time on the Trump Tower Climber than they did on this.
Now this morning a new report from government investigators shows that the top civilian intelligence officer in CENTCOM rewrote intelligence reports about ISIS to make it look like Obama's War was working, when in fact it was failing abysmally. Fox covered it on the morning news. I did not see it on CNN or any of the other news programs.
But they can blame this on the Russians too, I suppose, instead of Obama's inner coterie which wanted Americans to believe we were winning against ISIS when we are not.
I notice the Secretary of the Air Force came out yesterday and said that the greatest threat facing the American public is the Russians.
That's such palpable BS, the only reason I can think of for saying it is that he saw how well it worked when the DNC got caught rigging the primary, so he figured he'd give it a shot. Maybe he can distract people from worrying about the abysmal state of readiness in the Air Force right now.
Maybe it was the Russians who shot that DNC whistle blower in the back twice at close range. But I doubt it. They'd have had sense enough to take the wallet, watch, etc. to make the robbery explanation easier for the police.
The first 15 minutes was supposed to be Blitzer discussing Trumps Second Amendment Statement with a former Navy Seal supporter of Trump.
It didn't go well for Wolf. The Seal cut him off at the knees at every turn. Here are some of the descriptions of gun owners Blitzer used.
"These Second Amendments Types." "The lunatic fringe of the Republican Party". "Mentally ill".
The gest being that Trumps statement would incite gun owners to wholesale slaughter. There are a lot of sick, crazy people out there warned Wolf in stentorian tones. But the Seal just pointed out that all this was blown up by the media , to score points for Hillary, that it was nonsense and would be old news tomorrow.
Suddenly, Wolf announced that they were going to breaking news! It turned out to be some twit climbing the Trump Tower. The guy had been on the the tower for a couple of hours already, so it was pretty apparent this was a CNN escape from a situation where they were being made to look foolish. So much for the Seal.
The female reporter on the scene gushed about how this climber was undoubtedly so upset and alienated by Trumps comments on the Second Amendment that he was making this daring climb to highlight how outraged he was. She said that even though it was illegal, she had to find a spot in her heart to admire him for his moral courage and his desire to be counted in standing up against those who advocate violence! Too bad for her it turned out the guy was a Trump Supporter.
One other thing that was said on NBC nightly news last night worth mentioning.
The talking head said that Trump was trying to motivate gun owners to support him by saying that Hillary wanted to take away people's guns. He said "there is no evidence at all to support this." That's a direct quote.
On the same day, three small news "spots" on three different channels mentioned that the Democratic Party has adopted "Australian style gun control" as a "plank in their platform."
If that is true, it's an ominous development for us. I would guess it's more in the line of a red herring, to placate the gun grabbers in the party, a bone for the dog. But it shows how these news people have tunnel vision when they "parley their spiels" on the television.
I spent most of the day reading or watching the news because it rained almost all day, and then into the night. I'm going over some old books.
Once upon a time, post apocalyptic books were written both to entertain and to educate. Two authors who did a good job of that were Rawles and Sherry.
Rawles is a prolific author, a guru of Survivalism, and pretty well known in the community. Sherry is different. He used to haunt the survival blogs, never said much and didn't attract much attention. Then he wrote his first book, Deep Winter, and it was spectacular. The second in the series, Shatter, was just as good. The third in the Trilogy, Remnant, dealt more with political reconstitution of a government after a collapse, but was still a good read.
They are all available as ebooks on Kindle for a modest price. The paperback versions are expensive, but you'd have them available if the power went out. I like the Kindle versions because I can highlight passages that have value in relation to my personal planning up here. I do a lot of highlighting.
Two other books that would be good to have on the shelf at home in times like these. Both by Rawles.
I gave out many, many copies of this book to my extended family. Primarily to nephews and nieces, and my brothers and sister. Some of them took it to heart, others less so. It's a valuable book, relatively cheap, and not a difficult read.
This is the companion volume. There is probably something in this book you need, and just haven't thought of. I've read it several times, and each time I come up with some additional action I need to take. Better now, when I have the ability to address shortfalls, then later when things have gone to hell and there isn't much I can do about it.
