The Fake News Media

 

The term President Trump used to categorize CNN’s hack reporter Jim Acosta as Fake News is not only apt, but very descriptive of what is passed off as journalism today. I suppose these journalists think that what they report is being accepted by the public as reputable. In all fairness, reporters are human also, and mistakes can be made. Owning up, and correcting the story, does help restore reputations. However, when a supposed journalist makes the story about her/him selves, then their reputation is in question.

I don’t like being spoon fed the news. By that I mean selectively reporting news by either spinning the news, leaving out important information, or just not reporting stories. That’s not journalism, that propaganda. There are very few journalists that I consider honest, also there are certain news networks I consider fraudulent and dishonest.

It used to be that everyone got their news from the Big Three networks, ABC, CBS, NBC. Then came the cable news networks, CNN being the first. Then along the others, Fox News, MSNBC, and Headline News. Today, the rise of internet news networks are providing what the old technology has been failing to deliver, REAL NEWS!

Why do I call the news fake? Let’s start by looking at the obvious. CNN, that cable news outlet that infests airport terminals around the world. Abilio James “Jim” Acosta, a suppositive journalist with a proclivity for making the news about himself. Like many in the fake news industry, these ‘reporters’ don’t ask questions, they make accusations in the form of questions. It’s word salad with an attempt to take the President off message. If these clowns think the public believes these are hard, probing, questions, they are fooling themselves. The public is not as stupid as these reporters think. It’s rather insulting to our intelligence, and our duly elected President. Observe.

First words out of Acosta’s mouth, “I want to challenge you…“, that’s not a question, that’s an argument. It’s an accusation. Acosta went on to say that the illegal alien invasion heading to our southern border is not an invasion, but a caravan of migrants moving up to the border. So again, it’s not a question, it’s a confrontation over semantics. It is not Acosta’s place to correct the Commander in Chief, and use Acosta’s description of what is clearly an invasion of illegals.

Acosta’s confrontation with President Trump escalated to the point of disrupting the news conference. He was hogging the mic, refusing to stand down, and he continued to antagonize the President after he was told “That’s Enough!” Very rude, very unprofessional, very unpleasant. Acosta’s came across as a total jackass.

Other real journalists took note. Tucker Carlson at Fox News did a story on this incident. Oh, by the way, Fox News is becoming irritating to me lately. They used to be a standard of journalism, but several of their reporters are now becoming left leaning hacks. Carlson, is excluded from my list of FakeNewsFox reporters. Observe how a real reporter reports the news.

This level of unprofessionalism by Acosta is unbecoming of a journalist. It cost Acosta his hard-pass to the Whitehouse Press room. Deservedly so! I don’t remember Barry the Bullshitter Obama ever being harassed by reporters, but I do remember Barry illegally wiretapping a Fox News reporter James Rosen. Why? Because Barry doesn’t like hard, probing, questions. Barry likes questions he could answer in 20 minutes of filibustering gibberish. Barry refused to call on questions from Fox News reporters. The fake news media did not support Fox News when their reporters were discriminated against. In fact, the fake news media was a slobbering whore to Obama. Disgusting!

Note: The fake news media turned their backs on Tucker Carlson when antifa terrorists showed up at his property to threaten him and his family. Did Fox News support Carlson? Nope! Yet, they are standing with hack Acosta.

So now, CNN, the Communist Nutbags and Nimrods network, decided to sue the Whitehouse to return Acosta’s passes. Claiming removing the pass is a violation of Acosta’s 1st and 5th Amendment rights. When you invite someone into your house, and they get disruptive, you don’t invite them back. You cannot claim discrimination for boorish behavior. So what are the chances of a successful lawsuit?

To my disappointment, Fox News decided to stand with Fake News CNN on the lawsuit. At least there’s Fox Business that seems to continue with real news reporting. Special Report with Bret Baier has lost me. Mostly because of content in the show. Chris Wallace, the Sunday report is like watching Shemp Smith, which I compare to watching Rachel Madkow on MSNBC. CNN is just atrocious! Don Lemon is a racist, as with many others at CNN. I would say, both MSNBC and CNN are the most bias and manipulation of the fake news cable networks. Fox News is not far behind.

The Big Three networks, ABC, CBS, and NBC, are equally as bias. All the news we see fit to tell you. That’s their mantra! We’ll tell you what we think you should know. That’s no different than Soviet style propaganda news.

The rise of internet news outlets are somewhat refreshing. CRTV which hosts Michelle Malkin, Mark Lavin, and Stephen Crowder.  OAN (One American News) are two networks with impressive journalistic style. The Daily Caller (Tucker Carson’s publication), The Daily Wire (Ben Shapiro’s publication) Ben is a Never Trumper also, but we won’t hold that against him, because he’s honest reporting. Then there’s Dennis Prager (PragerU videos). These 5 minute videos are very informative and deal with many subjects in today’s society, including politics, and religion. Laura Loomer is a young, aggressive, hard nose reporter. I have been very impressed with her reporting.

There are many reporters that get right in where others won’t go. Take this example from Fleccas Talks. He’s a Ben Shapiro affiliated reporter Fleccas, as he wades into the crowd of antifa hard left fascists, to report face to face, with the enemy of the people.

Another note about Fox News, there’s an NPR racist that Fox hired and sits on the show called the Five, Juan Williams. He cannot go through a show without a swipe at calling white people racist. Williams does this all the time. This is annoying as hell. He lumps people by color into a racist category. Imagine if a white Fox personality categorized all black people as racist? That person would be fired on the spot. Yet Williams, gets a pass. CNN’s Don Williams did the same thing. April Ryan, same thing. The left has targeted white people, Christians, and Jews as targets of bigotry.

CNN has become easy with their reporters and guests using obscenities on their shows, with impunity. It is also a shame that the media has elevated a buffoon like Acosta to martyrdom status. As I said before, 90% of all reporters are leftists. They don’t believe in journalist objectivity. They don’t believe in Fair and Balanced reporting, and sadly, it seems Fox News is falling into that leftist category. It’s extremely disappointing. There are some Fox News shows I will not watch anymore, because of the content. If that’s the direction Fox News is going, then lowering my cable bill will keep an extra few dollars in my pocket. I don’t watch the other cable news channels for the same reason. Content is bias and directional.

What can I do? I can leave and find alternative news sites that are objective and thorough, and I’ve already started.

Four Corners

Here on the Big Island, in the lower Puna district, the Kapoho and Kalapana areas, are about to be cut off by lava. It’s a place called “Four Corners”. The intersection of highways 137 and 132 will soon be covered with lava, cutting off access to Red Road. Evacuations have begun.

I will miss the tree tunnels on Red Road (Hwy 137). They will either be cut off forever, or until the lava stops and the Honua cools. The shoreline is absolutely stunning. With its rocky cliffs and pristine Pacific ocean waters. There’s thousands of miles of ocean between East Hawaii and the Mainland America’s. The trade winds reach here first, and the air is the freshest in the world. The Pacific ocean doesn’t smell salty like the Atlantic ocean. There’s a deep blue hue within the water, with clear, but turbulent frothing, that warns of the power of Kanaloa.

The Lava Glow With Full Moon

However, now it’s Tutu Pele’s time. Her footsteps in Leilani Estates have destroyed over 80 structures, many are homes. In the above picture, I’m looking towards Pāhoa town towards the Lava in Leilani, the next town south from Pāhoa. There’s a full moon tonight with scattered rainfall. Luckily, the tradewinds are blowing westward from us. However, this is is affecting the lower Ka’u district towns of Pahala, Na’alehu, Waiohina, and parts of Kona. However, it’s has been that way long since the eruptions. We pray for them.

Ahalanui Park- Hot Springs

A popular spot for locals and tourists. The hot spring park of Ahalanui will be no more if the lava reaches this area. Naturally heated by underground lava flows, the water is warm and inviting. It sits right on the edge of the ocean where the Pacific sea waters feed the natural pond. In the map below, this park is just above Isaac Hale Park. Where the map lists Kapoho, and where four corners are located. The Hawai’i civil defense reports the lava flow is a half mile away from where four corners is located. The lava is fast moving. The lava is pāhoehoe (smooth) and fast moving. The lava has entered Puna Geological Venture (PGV) and covered two wells. So far, there has not been any hydrogen sulfur dioxide gas releases. We’re praying that Tutu Pele will move past what she’s reclaimed.

In the following video (credit Big Island Video News and USGS), note how the eruptions has killed the forest land around the Leilani fissures. The lava fountain is shooting 250-300 feet into the air. There are two lava ponds that have formed in the rift zone by the fissures. It all looks horrible, but a closer look at the map and you’ll see this has happened many times before. You live here, you know what you are rolling the dice for. Locals do what’s needed to help each other out. It’s what we do. Some of us do so very quietly.

Four corners is like a life experience. You stand at the crossroads of life. In life, there are no guarantees. No securities. The best you can do is to prepare. Plan for a disaster. Have a emergency kit to grab quickly in an emergency. Know what you need, who to call, and where to meet, to save yourselves and your family. Don’t rely on the government to help you. When you need the police: They’ll be there in minutes, when you have only seconds.

Now for some venting. The Fake News Media: ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, New York Slimes, New York Posts: All have falsely reported the activity on this island. This is journalism malpractice at its worse. This irresponsible crap has scared off tourism. This is an industry that employs many local people. It’s their livelihood. Yet the Fake News Media reported the island is blowing its top. Thanks media jackasses!

In our Constitution, there is a First Amendment provision for the media. Abused by leftists, that rather report half truths, and complete lies. There is no intellectual curiously with the Fake News Media. It’s all for TV ratings now. It’s like Joseph Goebbels Nazi propaganda of telling a lie often enough, eventually people will believe it. That’s what’s happening now in American news and entertainment.

Just like ABC’s decision to cancel the Roseanne Barr show. We all know Roseanne Barr is not a conservative, but the show is wildly popular with conservative working families. However, because of the popularity of the show’s middle America profile, and it’s President Trump leaning message, its struggling working family message for middle America, the executives at Fascist ABC decided to cancel it. Because of a tweet. BIG DEAL! Do you know how many racist hate-filled tweets, videos, and comments, by leftists that get ignored? IT’S A DOUBLE STANDARD!!!

ABC was already planning to tone down Roseanne’s show’s Pro-Trump, Pro-America, dialog down. They were just looking for an excuse to shut the show down. They got it, and immediately aborted. Yet, the fascists at ABC allow their other programs, like “The View” to continue to pollute the airwaves.  Pure Leftist Hatred towards the American family. There are very few shows on network television that have a strong positive family message. Unlike many of the leftist shows that display open immorality. Both comedies and dramas. There once was a time when entertainment television had a moral message to the show. Some semblance of basic common decency and common sense. Those days are gone now. Which pushes the ratings of viewership down also. They are destroying their own product. I call this the cultural suicide of the American society. The rape of the culture. The media’s lack of intellectual decency for ratings adds to the coarseness in public discord.

When the executives at ABC/Disney decides to hire (for the sixth time) fascist foulmouthed Keeth Oberdouche, and allow the other racist, bigoted, fascist, trained monkey’s, to plant their mugs on my television set, then it’s time to find a more objective media for news and entertainment. Let’s not exclude Fox News and Shemp Smith, the Rachael Madkow brand of Fox Faux News Media. To hell with them all.

There. I feel better now!

 

 

 

Fake News

A Lie Can Travel Halfway Around the World While the Truth Is Putting On Its Shoes

The leftist media has earned the moniker, “Fake News”, and deservedly so.  They publish only the news they want you to know, and they alter the information to fit a leftist narrative.  The Fake News Networks believe that you, the public, are that stupid to believe them.

The rise of ‘Citizen Journalism’ and independent objective journalism outlets continue to grow and challenge that was known as the liberal main stream news media.  That’s because we know the leftist media has been lying to the public.

A hack journalist at CNN, the ‘Communist Nutbag Network’, who is the brother of the racist New York governor, now equates the meme fake news to the N-word.  The leftist fake news promoter wants to be civil rights victim.  What a dishonest excuse for a journalist.  N-word means Nutbag.  He’s upset because his lack of objectivity has been challenged, and because he is the poster boy of Fake News.

The rudeness and leftist activism by the ‘lame stream media’ brings is nothing more than total dishonesty to journalism.  They didn’t act like this when Obama lied and filibustered questions.  They sucked up to Obama and acted like submissive puppy dogs.  Slobbering dogs.

How bad is the fake news stories?  Read them here at this link.

Journalistic objectivity is all but gone, except for a few fledgling sites where honest reporting can still be found.  Even well-known ‘Fair and Balanced’ networks have their bias leaning reporters at Fox News. Left leaning reporters that I consider on the same level as lying Brian Williams that embellishes his resume’ and experiences.

Can’t tell the difference between a reporter and a cartoon character

I’ve been asked where do I go to get my news: it’s a very good question, and the best answer is where I don’t go for my news.  I do not trust the establishment media.  The Big 3 media television news: ABC, CBS, NBC.  They parrot the same bias talking points.  The cable news channels are no different, except they are news with opinion advocacy.  They just report what you want to hear.  Hamster news.

So you have to judge the news with a YUGE grain of salt

HILARIOUS

 

The Fake News Media Repeating The Same Story Across The Country By Russian TV!

The media is often scripted and recited by teleprompters.  Which is why you must cross-check the televised media against the written media.  Now, there is the ‘Social Media’, Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, and others that must be cross-checked. It makes it harder to get real accurate information, but always be skeptical of the news until the stories can be verified.  And that’s the news for today, we made up just for you.

Obama the Venture Capitalist

Obama the Failed Venture (Vulture) Capitalist!  Why is ‘clean energy’ so dirty and corrupt?

Would you buy stock from this man?  Obama the Venture Capitalist?  I haven’t heard of any success stories about Obama’s Green Energy programs.  Believe me, I’ve looked and I’ve only found several successful green companies, but they are in Korea and not here.

This morning on the CBS Early Show, they reported on the loss of billions of taxpayer dollars in Department of Energy loans to failed ‘green energy’ companies across the United States.

.

CBS News – January 13, 2012

.

So let’s take a look at where the Obama regime has spent your money on failed ‘green energy’ programs.  Solyndra, General Motors Chevy Volt, Beacon Power Corporation and these are just a few of your forced investments that have failed.  There many more you can read about in the CBS story.

The Energy department’s director, Dr. Steven Chu, is supposed to be a scientist and a Nobel Prize winner for physics.  I’m beginning to think that anyone with a Nobel Prize is actually an idiot.  See Paul Kurgman and his Keynesian economic theories of tax and spend your way to prosperity.

.

(Hat Tip Darwin)

Remember when Obama said that Capitalism never worked?  Even though this country was founded in Capitalism and free-market enterprises, Obama believes in a central planning bureaucracy controlled by government agencies.  The Soviet Union was modeled after that, look where it got them.  Even the Communist Chinese are more Capitalistic than us!!!  Thanks to Obama.

“It’s a simple theory, and we have to admit it’s one that speaks for to rugged individualism and our healthy skepticism of too much government – that’s in America’s DNA. And that theory fits well on a bumper sticker. But here’s the problem. It doesn’t work. It has never worked.”

History is a problem for Obama.  He either doesn’t know it, or he thinks you don’t know it.  Obama creates a Straw Man argument for ‘clean energy’ by vilifying cheap energy sources like coal and oil.   Creating and running business is a alien concept to Obama.  Energy is needed to run any business.  Gas is needed for transportation, and oil and coal for electricity to power a business.

Running the Office of the Presidency has been outsourced to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi.  It was only after the midterm election in 2010 when the Tea Party helped elect fiscally responsible candidates to slow down the out of control spending and needless regulations.  These Tea Party people elected into office have been fighting an uphill battle with both Socialist Democrats and Establishment Republicans.  They need our help to restore the Republic.

Failed Wind Farm

.

There are a number of ‘green energy’ projects in Hawai’i; there is biomass, wind and solar.  Except for the existing power generation using oil, none of these ‘green energies’ have ever worked.  It is either too expensive, or it is not reliable as a alternative to oil.  Yet the government is pouring money into these projects with little results except to bankrupt the treasury.  Along the way, somebody is making a lot of money at taxpayers’ expense.

The online news site Honolulu Civil Beat published an article today making the claim that Hawai’i’s high cost of oil is because of Japanese Tsunami.  The Hawaiian Electric Company (HECO) started a public relations campaign to explain the high electrical rates.  Full story here!

“HECO buys a lot of low sulfur fuel oil and primarily buys low sulfur oil from local refineries that have prices that are indeed tied into the Far East prices,” he said. “So the Asian low sulfur fuel oil prices have been really affected by what has happened with the Japanese tsunami and the closing down of nuclear power plants. The Japanese have had to switch to running fuel oil.”

While this is partially true, it is not entirely true.  As Andrew Walden from Hawai’i Free Press points out:

Two problems with this fact check: 1) Hawaii is closer to Latin American LSFO oil sources so we are not hostage to the Asian market. 2) Tesoro has the capacity to process high-sulfur oil
This Civil Beat “fact check” is just the latest Omidyar effort to jack up everybody’s oil and electricity prices in Hawaii. We are not lab rats in his failed green energy experiment.

When Fact Checking a claim by Hawai’i’s monopolistic public utility (HECO) that natural disasters and Middle East unrest, are the reasons why a spike in oil prices has caused Hawai’i electric rates to rise, then it is necessary to look back at the real reasons behind the scenes.

From Hawai’i Free Press:

There is no need for Hawaii to pay Asia’s higher prices–unless of course it was convenient to create political pressure in order to force Big Wind and Big Cable on Lanai and Molokai. Jacking up oil prices has long been a staple of green energy scammers’ strategy. For instance Pierre Omidyar’s Kanu Hawaii group in 2009 pushed for a Barrel Tax which would have raised the price of oil to $100 a barrel entering Hawaii. (Isn’t there something perverse about the richest guy in Hawaii working to jack up everybody’s gasoline prices and electric bills? Is he trying to push us all out?) In a report issued December 30, 2009, the Hawaii Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Task Force created by Act 234 of 2007 outlined its support for a Carbon Tax in Hawaii. Robbie Alm, representing HECO, was a member of the Task Force and supported the Carbon Tax

Indeed, part of Obama plan for Hope and Change was to raise electric rates.  Skyrocketing! To quote Obama’s own words.  Along with EPA regulations and Dept. of Interior restrictions on coal harvesting and oil drilling; the Obama regime’s policies are not only the source of expensive energy costs, but the economic slowdown which relies on abundant cheap energy.

Ironically, the very environmentalist groups that are demanding ‘clean green energy’ have come out against it.  In Hawai’i, on the Big Island where I live, there is a old power plant in Pēpē’ekeo that was  used when sugar was the major industry here.  When sugar left the islands for cheaper locations, the coal-fired power plant continued on.  Recently, the plant has been refurbished to use biomass to generate electricity.   Not only has there been local opposition to the plant, but the environmentalists have come out against the plant also.

Hu Honua will use only biomass. The goal is for the plant to be operational by late 2012. It will produce 24 megawatts of power, about 10 percent of the island’s electrical needs and about enough for 14,000 homes. It expects to employ about 100 construction workers for up to a year for plant refurbishment and then about 30 fulltime workers at the facility.

It should be noted that biomass is plant material, namely the huge Eucalyptus trees that line the Hāmākua coast along the east side of the Big Island.  It will produce emissions like coal does; however, it will require large trucks to haul the trees that grow on the slopes of Mauna Kea.  The roads in Pēpē’ekeo are not built to handle the traffic, nor the weight of large trucks hauling trees.  The community is small with many Mahi ‘ai (farms) in the area.  The only benefit that I can see by this plant is that it will create some full time jobs; but that’s already the case using coal, and it’s cheaper and more environmentally safer for the ‘Aina.
