      With the print Media it’s all spin and narrative e keeping.

      With the photo Media it’s all about the angle and the framing of the the shot to meet the propaganda requirements.

      With TV and video media it’s all about cutting and splicing totally out of all context to support the narrative and the meme.

      These cockroaches would make Joseph Goebbels blush with the false witness they expound.

      If the general public knew the corruption and lying by the media on a daily basis there would be public floggings and rough hemp ropes aplenty.

      It’s November 12, and we have about 2 inches of snow here in Wichita. People have completely lost their ability drive. In the last 15 minutes I’ve gone less than a 1/10th of a mile.

      I always wonder what Trump’s approval numbers would be if the media reported HONESTLY about the great economy, etc. That he maintains his numbers despite the negative press is amazing.

      But it was also pointed out back in the day that Bush’s poll numbers would go up when he actually made a point to answer his critics. Which wasn’t often. Trump’s responses are immediate.

      Oh, and I have a prediction: Commie Crazy-Eyes from New York is going to be such an embarrassment to the Democrats and such a pain in the ass to work with in the House that in two years DNCC finds a better candidate and supports them, putting her on her own.

      From the comments at Legal Insurrection:

      There is a well documented social phenomenon where one group will adopt the tactics of another group with which they are in opposition. In a football game, if one team constantly breaks the rules and little, or nothing, is done to stop this, the other team decides that such behavior is now acceptable. Interestingly enough, it us usually the team which was cheating first that now screams the loudest about playing by the rules.

      Society establishes rules which govern social interaction. If one group decides to rewrite the rules to their benefit and the authorities within that society do nothing to restore adherence to those rules, the rest of society will simply start playing by the new rules, in order to remain competitive.

      As you sow, so shall you reap.

      I see where the Hildebeest is hinting that she’ll run again in 2020. I’m going to assume she thinks that big “HOUSE” win is indicative that people have turned their backs on Trump.

      I am equally going to assume that the DNC is not going to tolerate Our Lady of the Damaged Goods a third time, and as such will not be rigging the primaries for her. Wait’ll she sees what happens when she doesn’t have those Super Delegates to ride her to the nomination.

      If I had to wager right now who they are going to be put forward, I’m going to go with Beto O’Rourke. Only he won’t be calling himself “Beto” in 2020. He’ll call himself “Robert Francis O’Rouke” – SO much more Kennedyesque.

      I also predict Trump would wipe the FLOOR with him during any debates.

      @Bunk.

      Fabulous photos. This is one reason why crowd rental companies are springing up to use for election rallies and other situations when you need the “appearance” of a crowd. It is manufacturing a reality when altering the photo isn’t sufficient.

      In movies computer graphics substitute for the costly building of a set and hiring extras. We are forewarned that we are watching a movie. Not so with fake news.

      Nobody will trust the news at some point. It needs to become obvious to the complacent masses. Like the old Soviet Union. “We pretend to work and they pretend to pay us.” They assumed Pravda was lying because their experience did not match the news. The govy gave you great food production numbers, but you knew you had to stand in line to get meat.

      I think the largest issue is that the twitterverse cheats by removing conservative tweet creators. The same is true for YouTube. Evil google makes vids disappear or demonetizes the conservative producers. The propaganda machine is one way GLOBALIST/UN/new world order crapola. Same goes for farcebook.

      We won’t have to worry about pesky news anchors in the future.

      A TV anchor has joined a Chinese news agency who is not human. China’s state-run Xinhua News Agency has launched an artificial intelligence (AI), anchor. “English AI Anchor” debuted Thursday at the World Internet Conference in the country’s eastern Zhejiang Province.

      Modeled on the agency’s Zhang Zhao presenter, the new anchor learns from live videos and is able to work 24 hours a day, reporting via social media and on the Xinhua website. ”‘He’ learns from live broadcasting videos by himself and can read texts as naturally as a professional news anchor,” the company said in an online statement.

      I JUST found out that you don’t have to be a Canadian citizen to vote here.

      An eye opening article out of Vancouver on the issue of non-citizens voting.

      British Columbia is currently in the middle of a referendum on electoral reform. Sure, voters turned down proportional representation before but with the NDP back in power, let’s try again!

      So can non-citizens vote in this referendum?

      Well they aren’t supposed to but they can because neither Elections BC, not it turns out Elections Canada, has the ability to check.
      News 1130 in Vancouver followed this story after hearing from a listener who is not a citizen but was able to vote. Turns out the whole system is based on honour

      “The system is an honour system for confirming that you are in fact a citizen,” Rebecca Penz with Elections BC said. “We don’t have the ability to use records such as health records to validate citizenship. We don’t have that authority to do that.” I imagine it is much the same across the country, because as you will see in a minute, it is the same for Elections Canada.

      Concerns dismissed as racism.

      Yet everytime this issue of non-citizens voting is raised at any election time, we are told that to simply ask the question is racist.

      Now I never fall for that BS. The implication is that a complaint about non-citizens voting comes from white people and is always aimed at non-white people. Well my parents are white, they are also immigrants and had to become Canadian citizens to vote. Or so they thought.

      Turns out that, in today’s Canada at least, you could simply claim to be a citizen.

      and here it comes down the pike!

      pay extremely close attention to what will be the outcome of the G20 Interfaith Conference held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, end of November 2018. In the preliminary forum held last September (see link), the call was launched – especially from the Jewish side – to create an Unified, Global Religion with the current pope as a kind of president of the UN of Religions (quote Israel’s ex-president Shimon Peres). Call him the Super Pope then.
      https://www.g20interfaith.o

      The World Religion to go with the Globalist government under the G20 and UN.

      @ Aussie Infidel:

      Tell me that in Argentina where Hezbollah is free to murder Jews, that the Jews are the CAUSE of the international GLOBALIST fight to destroy EVERY religion. I am no match for you intellectually, but to dredge up Shimon Peres as some mastermind seems like a little lapse in logic. Possibly I misunderstood your cause and effect allusion.

      Argentina’s Jewish Community Center was a killing ground for Hezbollah. The govt did nothing. The lawyer who had been collecting evidence of the killers trail was murdered just before the trial started. The Jews continue to live under various states of oppression since the rise of Islamism. They continue to vote Liberal, even in Israel. They may be delusional, but there is a slight undertone of fear as they watch Europe go feral.

      The Jewish people have the same problem as everyone else. We all have bloody Elites to deal with. Both actual elites and those who just have the shadow of former power like Peres.
