Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
As you watch the Democrats and their fake news media toadies attempt to convince Americans we are in a recession when the economy is in fact booming, remember they have done this all before. – This is just page 284 or something from the Democrat/media playbook, and as George H.W. Bush found out the hard way in 1991-2, the effort has succeeded before.
Not that Poppy Bush deserved to be re-elected in 1992 after reneging on his “read my lips, no new taxes” promise to the voters, but the main reason why he lost that election was because most voters went to the polls convinced that an economy that was humming right along was in fact in a recession. That mis-perception was 100% due to the massive brainwashing campaign that had been mounted by the Democrat/media propaganda complex for 15 solid months leading up to election day.
So, if you’re wondering why each and every one of the Sunday morning opinion shows focused on the “are we in a recession?” fake topic, rest assured that was no coincidence. With the whole “Russia collusion” hoax having miserably failed, the Democrat/media complex is just going through their handy playbook, tossing stuff up against the wall to see if any of it will stick.
It won’t stick this time, for one key reason: In 1991, the country did go through a very brief, very modest recession. That was the “hook,” complete with actual data, that afforded the brainwashing effort a shred of credibility. The brain-washers do not enjoy any similar luxury today, as the Trump economy, with its full employment, low inflation and high wage growth rates has given us strong GDP growth for two uninterrupted years now.
What they are engaged in today is an audacious effort to destroy consumer confidence, because they understand that we have a consumption-based economy. No kidding – these people cringe and become angry when they see the strong consumer confidence numbers published each month, so they are literally attempting to tank the U.S. economy.
Yes, it’s despicable. Yes, it’s disgraceful. Yes, it is disgusting. But hey, these are Democrats we’re talking about here – you expected something else?
Speaking of despicable, disgraceful and disgusting, how about that New York Times, huh? – In case you missed it, New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet got caught on audio admitting that his fake news publication had literally built its staff to promote the “Russia collusion” story, and is now regrouping because, in his words, “the story has changed” to racism.
But of course, as we have known now for two solid years, the story never changed at all: “Russia collusion” was a massive hoax from day one, and everyone involved knew it was a hoax, including Baquet and his tailor-made staff at the New York Times. What has actually changed this year is that the vaunted Mueller Report failed to support the hoax, humiliating the Times, and all the myriad other fake news organizations that had pushed the hoax on behalf of the Democrat Party beginning in mid-2016.
Or as Baquet put it:
The closest Baquet came to identifying a moment when the paper had misjudged current events was when he described it as being “a little tiny bit flat-footed” after the Mueller investigation ended. “Our readers who want Donald Trump to go away suddenly thought, ‘Holy shit, Bob Mueller is not going to do it,’” Baquet said.
So, what is a professional propagandist to do when he has been caught “a little tiny bit flat-footed” promoting one hoax? Why, move on to promoting another hoax, of course.
Thus it was that, in the same town hall meeting in which the admissions above were made, Baquet promised to re-tool his staff and his fake newspaper’s overarching narrative to now focus on how everything in American life is about racism:
“How do we cover America, that’s become so divided by Donald Trump?” he said. “How do we grapple with all the stuff you all are talking about? How do we write about race in a thoughtful way, something we haven’t done in a large way in a long time?”
“We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well. Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story. I’d love your help with that. As Audra Burch said when I talked to her this weekend, this one is a story about what it means to be an American in 2019. It is a story that requires deep investigation into people who peddle hatred, but it is also a story that requires imaginative use of all our muscles to write about race and class in a deeper way than we have in years. In the coming weeks, we’ll be assigning some new people to politics who can offer different ways of looking at the world. We’ll also ask reporters to write more deeply about the country, race, and other divisions. I really want your help in navigating this story.”
But never fear, Deplorables, because the New York Times is now supposedly going to make an effort to “understand” you, something any responsible news organ might have attempted to do in 2015:
The same newspaper that this week will publish the 1619 Project, the most ambitious examination of the legacy of slavery ever undertaken in [inaudible] newspaper, to try to understand the forces that led to the election of Donald Trump. And that means trying to understand the segment of America that probably does not read us.
Rest assured that the only attempt to “understand” that segment of America will simply be to support the Democrat narrative that each and every one of them is a racist.
This is both hilarious, and sad. Hilarious that the newspaper that sets the coverage tone for the rest of the Democrat-toady fake news media truly cannot imagine that 95% of Americans simply do not focus on a person’s race in their everyday lives like everyone on the New York Times staff obviously does. Sad because this is so awfully representative of the sorry, tattered state of the U.S. news media today.
That is all.
