The MSM Didn’t Make Trump and They Can’t Unmake Him

I’ve mentioned before I have a degree in Journalism. Actually it’s a degree in Mass Communications with a concentration in Journalism.

I’ll again repeat I wish I hadn’t got it. I left the field decades ago.

The three newspapers I worked for are now out of business. I had only one good boss. The rest were bad to the point of incompetence. Most reporters are leftists and I’ve never been able to figure out why.

Being leftists they of course hate Trump and want him gone.

What almost none of them realize is that the MSM didn’t make Trump and they can’t unmake him. No matter what they do they are helpless. No matter what they say they aren’t going to change anyone’s mind.

Apparently the MSM still thinks it’s 1974 when it helped get rid of Nixon – and it’s the only victory it’s had since that year.

I no longer read or buy newspapers and for decades I had ceased watching the news. The only reason I started watching again was to watch them froth at the mouth about Trump. It was amusing.

But now it’s gotten boring and I’ve stopped again. I quit watching the Sunday morning political programs. All of them are the same thing – having hissy fits about Trump.

I recently saw Chuck Todd on TV start fellating the senile John McCain and I thought, “That’s it” and I turned the program off. I’ll never watch it again.

I get all my news off of the internet and have for years. I do read Bing news every day but that’s free. It’s still distorting and lying about Trump.

The MSM isn’t going to go out of business but for a long time newspapers were dropping like flies. That seems to have stopped.

Newspapers are supported by advertising. How in the hell can newspapers on the internet can stay in business when they have no advertising is beyond me. Who’s supporting them – George Soros?

Very few people trust the MSM anymore. Even they know that. And they are finally realizing they can’t ignore or insult Flyover Land anymore. They were stunned by how influential the people who live there are – they’re the ones who put Trump in office.

The younger people I know today don’t read newspapers or watch TV news anymore. Most of the ones I know get their news from YouTube. They don’t even read blogs.

All this makes me wonder where the MSM is going to be in 20 years. Will it still be the same? Because of the internet I very much doubt it.

For a long time the MSM was claiming those on the internet weren’t “real” journalists. That’s stopped because the internet is so influential – too much competition for the MSM.

And only with competition will you get the truth. That’s what the free market in opinion does – in the long run the truth will win out.

If the Election was Redone Trump Would Win Even Bigger

The close-to-worthless Mainstream Media, which is going to be attacking and telling lies about Trump every day for the next eight years, would like to see him resign or impeached or assassinated. They’ll tell every lie they can to achieve this. It’s not going to work because the MSM is powerless and that’s driving them crazy.

Recently I’ve been hearing about the nonexistent “chaos” in the Trump administration.

I’ve also been hearing from the MSM that if the election was held now Hillary Clinton would crush him. Just how deluded is the MSM?

It’s funny because Hillary’s political career is over, just the way the Bush Crime Family’s political aspirations are over – there will never be another Clinton or Bush in political office ever again. And thank God for that.

Webb Hubbell’s daughter Chelsea? “Low-energy” Jeb! Don’t make me laugh.

The exact opposite would happen. Trump would crush Clinton even worse than he did the first time. And whoever runs against him in four years will be crushed, too.

I know people who were anti-Trump. Not rabidly like the crazies but they usually preferred Ted Cruz or another Republican. Sometimes even a Democrat as long it wasn’t Hillary.

Now allofasudden they’re Trump fans. Why? Because he’s doing what he said he’d do – he’s done more in his first week in office than Obama did in eight years. How many politicians do that? But then Trump was never a politician – and even though he’s President he still doesn’t act like a politician. And that damned refreshing.

These people were hesitant at first about Trump. Some considered him sort of a clown – a reality-show star. Not anymore!

I have no idea who the Democrats are going to run in four years. It doesn’t matter. They’ve got no one who is viable. Clinton again? Bernie Sanders? Both were jokes the first time around.

The Democrats have turned themselves into a coastal party – and neither coast counts in an election. Only Flyover Land – the Heartland – counts.

I live in Flyover Land. That’s why I knew Trump was going to win. I predicted it as a landslide (I was thinking 40 states instead of 30, which is what is was).

I was raised in a Democratic city. Even a Democratic county. Being a Democrat was close to a religion when I was growing up.

I was in my hometown before the election and all I was hearing was “Trump, Trump, Trump.” My hometown and the county went for Trump and in a big way.

A solidly Democratic city and county – since forever! – went solidly Republican. What does that say?

The MSM is never going to develop any sense, not when they’re interviewing – and taking seriously – buffoons like Van Jones and Nancy Pelosi and John McCain.

If it had any sense they’d be interviewing people from the Heartland and asking them what the Democrats can do to become a real party again.

That’s not going to happen, though.

Human Sacrifice as a Fertility Rite

"One is misled not by what he does not know but by what he believes he knows." – Rousseau

All human sacrifice is a fertility rite. All you have to do is read the Old Testament – think Moloch, in which infants were rolled into the fire-filled stone belly of the idol.

This means all war is human sacrifice and therefore a fertility rite.

This connection is not original with me.

As Mircea Eliade wrote, "Since 'our world' is a cosmos, any attack from without threatens to turn it into chaos. And as 'our world' was founded by imitating the paradigmatic work of the gods, the cosmogony, so the enemies who attack it are assimilated to the enemies of the gods, the demons, and especially to the archdemon, the primordial dragon conquered by the gods at the beginning of time. An attack on 'our world' is equivalent to an act of revenge by the mythical dragon, who rebels against the work of the gods, the cosmos, and struggles to annihilate it. 'Our' enemies belong to the powers of chaos. Any destruction of a city is equivalent to retrogression to chaos. Any victory over the attackers reiterates the paradigmatic victory of the gods over the dragon (that is, over chaos)."

And who these days (in fact for the whole 20th Century) are the first to be sacrificed? Soldiers – and the “collateral damage” in other countries.

And who sacrifices them? Politicians. The vast majority of which are vermin.

In the past it was priests who conducted these sacrifices. Today, again, it’s politicians – who the stupid see, whether they know it or not, as priests defending against that mythical dragon.

Want to see a good movie about these meaningless sacrifices? Try Mel Gibson’s Apocalypto - with the hearts being ripped out of living people, to make sure the sun didn’t stop in the sky.

Notice that phrase “an act of revenge.” Much of the bad things in life are explained by “an act of revenge.”

I’ll use a modern example. The United States was attacked on 9-11 as an act of revenge. Osama bin Laden admitted this.

Then the United States (specifically the brain-damaged, uneducated, alcoholic, cokehead Dubya Shrub) attacked Iraq and Afghanistan as a act of revenge.

The ignorant and stupid can use all the excuses/rationalizations they want but it was about revenge.

What Eliade was writing about is the archetype of the horror story: good attacked by evil. The sacred "Homeland" (or “fatherland” or “motherland”) under assault by fanatical, insane, evil mass murderers who wish to destroy and conquer us. Heaven under attack by Satan. It's an old, apparently instinctive archetype, and many, many people fall for it. Always have, and always will.

When any country is attacked they always have to see their attackers as evil. As George Orwell wrote, “Every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defense against a homicidal maniac.”

Even the ancient Greeks noticed what human sacrifice was with their god Dionysus, who was not the god of partying and booze. He was the god of tearing people to shreds – and Dionysus was a fertility god.

There is something pretty damn wrong with the human race – call it Original Sin if you want. It still believes in Moloch – and still cheers him on.

Defending Dubya Shrub

I amused that some at this site try to defend this worthless alcoholic POS.

Unattractive Anti-Trump Women

I know several anti-Trump (and pro-Hillary) women and they all have some things in common: they’re unattractive and unmarried.

The younger ones are not attractive and never will be. The middle-aged ones are never married or divorced and have lost their looks. All of them are hostile in various ways and blame their lives on men.

Some have one child only (raised a without father and therefore not right in the head), all of them are feminists, and all of them are promiscuous, i.e. sluts (my experience has been the more promiscuous a woman is the less she understands men. Promiscuous women are invariably self-centered and the self-centered never understand other people. I’ve seen this on men, too.).

Many of them work for the government (especially the federal government) in various ways. They rarely make enough money to support themselves so they also get welfare.

The women I know who are married and have children voted for Trump.

The anti-Trump women have all told me Hillary Clinton has “the most experience.” None of them knows that Hillary was fired from her first job in the government for lying, breaking the rules of the Democratic party, and breaking the law. And she has never stopped doing those things since then.

All they know about Trump is that he said “grab them by the pussy.” That means to them he “hates women.” They hope Trump will resign or be impeached or be assassinated.

I’ve said before women should not be allowed to vote, and if they are they should be married and have children.

I’ve also said before that Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn wrote that leftism is about “the murder of the Father.” It’s the best one-sentence definition there is.

That just proves how goofy these women are that they work for the federal government, which means they have “married” the government instead of one individual man – and the federal government is the Father they don’t want to murder.

At least when it’s the welfare, make-work Father – which is no Father at all.

"The Rich Man's War and the Poor Man's Fight"

"Any idiot can start a war." - For Good and Evil, Charles Addams

"The Rich Man's War and the Poor Man's Fight" was one of the names originally given to the War Between the States (which wasn’t about freeing the slaves in the slightest and instead was about taxes and tariffs – the North using the federal government to try to economically exploit the South in order to enrich Northern industries – and it led to three-quarters of a million casualties. Today, with the increase in population, that would be about five million dead and wounded. And the ignorant say Lincoln (who was also a wealthy lawyer for those industries) was a great President!).

Not surprisingly, the homosexual Lincoln (he wrote homoerotic poetry and slept with his man-ass Joshua Speed for God knows how many years) was brain-damaged from being kicked in the face in his early teens by a horse (he was in a coma for three days and people thought he was going to die). He suffered severe depression for decades from his brain damage and also had syphilis – his son died from it and his wife ended her life in an insane asylum because of it. Obviously Lincoln had no business being President.

Not all wars are started because of money but once they are started the acquisition of money always figures prominently in them. The rich always get richer and everyone else struggles, sometimes terribly. It’s always been like that and always will be. It’s been the history of the world.

Our “Revolutionary War” (actually our First War for Independence because it wasn’t a revolution at all) was about taxes and tariffs – the Second War for Independence was the War Between the States – and it, again, was about taxes and tariffs).

Speaking of idiots who start wars, born-uber-rich alcoholic/cokehead for decades (therefore permanently brain-damaged) frat boy Dubya Shrub (who failed at every business he was involved in and when asked he wanted to serve in Vietnam as fighter pilot, responded, “No”) started two unnecessary ones (still going on after 16 years) and I’m sure he and his friends (such as Dickless Cheney) made tens of millions of dollars from those wars – all extorted from hapless taxpayers. Such politically-connected bullies/cowards always make that kind money from wars – ones they have no intention whatsoever of fighting themselves – which they start because it makes them feel the intoxication of power, domination and control. Which is what motivates all serial killers. Fighting and dying and being horribly maimed is for the expendable lower classes (by the way, I know a man who helped kill his incompetent gloryhound lieutenant in Vietnam because he was so bad he gotten half-a-dozen of his men killed. So in self-defense they rubbed him out. He said he and the other soldiers – all working-class – didn’t lose a wink of sleep over it).

Having dealt with several alcoholics for decades, the first time I saw Dubya speak on TV I immediately knew he was an alcoholic – an untreated one, i.e. a “dry drunk.” It was crystal-clear from his speech and body language. I have seen him drunk on TV – the flushed face and the slurred speech. He had no business being President.

Such vile people apparently think those who fight the wars to not be fully human. Which reminds me that Stalin charged his scientists with creating a human/chimpanzee hybrid to fight wars.

That also reminds me of the movie Blade Runner, in which the warrior “replicants” had animal DNA (such as wolf and possibly shark) inserted in them (the same applies to Kurt Russell’s movie, Soldier, a sequel which was set many years – possibly centuries - after Blade Runner, but the throw-away artificial humans were still used to fight wars).

I do know that art imitates life but sometimes life imitates art. If the government could genetically engineer soldiers it would – but for a long time to come it’s just easier to throw away human life by those who only pretend to care. For example, G.I. means “Government Issue.” Disposable Government Issue.

St. Paul was pretty darn close when he wrote “The love of money is the root of all evil.” It’s really that Monstrous Self of which Russell Kirk wrote that is the root of all evil – the love (actually “lust”) for money is just a manifestation of it. As is bullying/cowardice. And being a Chickenhawk with a big mouth and no testicles.

There is another, lesser-known Biblical phrase – “the lust of the eye.” That means getting pleasure from watching death and destruction – the way Romans saw the fighting and death in the Coliseum as entertainment, much like TV and movies today (I’m sure the Chickenhawk Shrub and all the incompetents in his administration suffered from the lust of the eye – I’m also sure all of them thoroughly enjoyed the wars. It was entertainment to them. It’s why none of them ever visited or will ever visit the back wards of a VA hospital – not entertaining at all to see men with faces burned off or no arms and legs - or genitals.).

The lust of the eye, the lust for money, Biblical Pride (that Monstrous Self), not using God’s name for vain causes, the sin of greed…there certainly is a lot of ages-old wisdom in that book (neither wisdom nor folly is new – both are as old as humanity).

I wouldn’t mind seeing some additions to the Bible, such as something about “Rich Man’s War and Poor Man’s Fight.” That’s not going to happen, though.

It’s amazing how many violent revolts – indeed wars – have been started because of money, i.e. taxes. And taxes are always from governments. Taxpayers are sheep to be shorn – and sometimes meaninglessly sacrificed.

Speaking of the Bible, there are some famous sayings in it about stealing the last penny of widows and orphans.

It’s amazing how self-deceptive – blind – some people are. Especially the ones elected to office.

And we do know what happens when the blind lead the blind. Oops, right into the ditch. Including entire counties.

Living Through Five Wars

The first “war” I remember is Vietnam (which was a Presidential action and never declared – the last war declared was WWII), which started when I was seven and ended when I was 17. Ten years! I was raised on that war – every day, from second grade to a senior in high school.

The next one was Grenada, which started when I was 27.

Then there was Panama, the years of which I don’t remember.

Then there was Daddy’s Bush’s first Middle East war.

Then there was his son’s war in Iraq and Afghanistan, still going on. Sixteen years so far – longer than WWI, WWII and Korea combined (and some of Vietnam too).

Of course I’ve met a lot of wounded soldiers – some catastrophically - and some killed, including one I went to high school with who basically got his head blown off while piloting a helicopter in Grenada. That’s what happens when you are an American – you experience things like that. Too bad.

When I got older I realized that every soldier killed and wounded, and every citizen “collateral damage” killed and wounded (old men, old women, children, babies, pregnant women) - in every one of those wars died for nothing. It was a complete waste of health and life and wealth, all of it.

There is a good reason there exists that Biblical saying about Satan “walking to and fro and down and down” the world.

I still know men who were not only horribly wounded – brain-damaged – not only from Korea but World War II. They were so badly wounded they have no meaningful lives, not when the one from Korea can’t form any new memories and still thinks it’s 1951 (he still thinks he’s 21 years old) and the one from WWII is about ten years old mentally (of course the historically ignorant are going to say, “But-but-but Hitler and the Commies were going to conquer the world!”)

I forgot – I still know one blinded in Korea.

I’ve also found that every Chickenhawk I’ve met was never in combat or even in the military – being cowards they avoided both on purpose. All they can do is give worthless advice on how wars should be conducted but they no intention whatsoever of putting their money where their mouth is. These days they’re keyboard warriors. That’s ball-less cowardice pure and simple. They think that running their mouths makes them brave.

Every combat veteran Ive’ met considers Dubya Shrub a coward. Every one of them. They’re right: he is a coward who when asked if he wanted to serve as a fighter pilot in Vietnam, responded, “No.”

A coward is not someone who’s afraid. A coward is someone who brags about how tough they are – like Shrub howling “Bring it on!” – but has nothing personally to back it up (like Dubya declining to fly in Vietnam). As I’ve said before, “The cheaper the punk the gaudier the patter.”

One of my friends, who had a B.S. in Economics and a PhD in History, recently asked me, “Did Bush do anything right?”

I’ve had people tell me we shouldn’t listen to people who’ve been in combat “because their minds aren’t right.” Such people are incredibly stupid because they don’t realize the answer is, “You mean your mind is right because you’re a coward?” They can’t say they’re not a coward otherwise they would have volunteered for combat. When you’re stupid you are always getting yourself caught between a rock and a hard place.

If I had my way I’d bring back the draft – but only for Chickenhawks. I’d put them in the front lines so they’d be the first killed. It’d make it a better world, genetically much improved.

Chickenhawks think their minds are right even though they are cowards. That’s actually very funny.

There is an ancient observation – “Mars takes the best.” Mars, meaning the Roman god of war. It’s the Roman version of the Greek god of war, Ares.

No more Mars taking the best. Mars can take the worst, the worthless. Big-mouth cowards. Chickenhawks. I wouldn’t even treat them when they’re wounded, just shoot them. It’s what soldiers used to do to other horribly wounded soldiers when they were going to die anyway.

We can’t do anything less for Chickenhawks. If they’re so brave and war-loving they wouldn’t mind being killed or horribly wounded or shot and put out of their misery. They should want to die or be catastrophically wounded for cowardly politicians and their meaningless wars.
