bipolar elephants and China

Bipolarized Journalism… sundance – “Good grief. In the latest exhibition of bipolar narrative engineering, the New York Times encapsulates everything wrong with the current state of U.S. journalism.”

Reza Aslan Calls Kellyanne Conway the ‘Evil We Need to Eradicate’. John Nolte – a follow-up on yesterday’s notice of a reporter inciting violence, the reaction, and trying to walk back or rationalize the hate.

“When someone talks about “eradicating” hate, that is a perfectly acceptable use of the word. Aslan is talking about eradicating a whole person, a woman — which means he wants her eliminated and destroyed forever — he wants a person gone.

Obviously, despite an obvious call for violence, the leftists at Twitter have done nothing to Aslan or his Twitter account.

Leftist privilege is becoming more and more a problem in our society. People on the left can be as racist, menacing, threatening, and even as violent as they like without facing any kind of social censure from the very same people who will have the rest of us blacklisted for opposing homosexual marriage.

Blame the media for racist violence, not Trump. Marc Weisman – “The leftist playbook is simple: the mainstream media create false Trump narratives, and they repeat them far and wide until the false narrative becomes an accepted “truth.

“Here is the problem, though: we have yet to see any evidence, even flimsy evidence, that this president really is a racist.

It’s not Trump, but rather the false Trump racism charges frenetically squawked by the media that likely facilitated this week’s terrible acts of violence. When the media amps up the masses on a steady diet of nasty invective to further their must-remove-Trump agenda, it should surprise no one that unstable people may act out.

Mass Shootings: The Elephant in the Room. Taylor Day “America desperately needs to have a conversation, and it’s very different than the one we have been having when reflecting on mass murders. Despite the hysteria that these events cause, there is no significant upwards trend.”

Rand Paul’s surgery reminds us the Left has no problem cheering political violence. Jack Hunter – “It’s easy to dismiss social media commentators. But the senator’s announcement came just one week removed from actor Tom Arnold (who joined a host of other celebrities who have cheered Paul’s assault) basically saying that Paul got what he deserved from his neighbor.” … “It was just one week ago that an elected official, Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Democrat from Minnesota, retweeted Arnold’s insult about Paul.” It is interesting that, after citing a litany of one sided problems, Hunter falls into the ‘both sides the same’ trap.

On Trump’s Excellent Speech. John Hinderaker – “It consisted in large part of denunciations of the murderers and sympathy for their victims. Beyond that, Trump’s comments were notable in several ways.

Trump’s ‘Teleprompter’ Speech ‘Hit All The Right Notes,’ But Was Just ‘Lip Service’. Scott Morefield – A glaring example of CNN’s bias problem.

China Allows Currency to Drop – President Trump Responds – Devaluation Lowers Consumer Import Prices… sundance – “China needs to buy dollars to backstop their own currency (¥uan). When China trades with the U.S. they hold the return dollars as a peg against their weak currency. Remove the flow of dollars (lessen exports) and they start to run out of strong pegged currency.” i.e. despite a lot of the anti-tariff rhetoric, it is China that is paying the tariff bill, not U.S. citizens. How long China will sustain this cost is the question.

Will China Retreat Into Itself? Tyler Durden – “It’s not even about the value itself, or the change in it, it’s the heavy-handed way it’s executed.” By using government force to set the value of its currency, trust in that value is diminished.

Why ‘policing is racist’ is such a poisonous lie. Heather Mac Donald – “A new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences demolishes the Democratic narrative regarding race and police shootings.” … “The persistent belief that we are living through an epidemic of racially biased police shootings is a creation of selective reporting.

“The “policing is racist” discourse is poisonous. It exacerbates anti-cop tensions in minority communities and makes cops less willing to engage in the proactive policing that can save lives. …

The anti-cop narrative deflects attention away from the real criminal-justice problem, which is high rates of black-on-black victimization.

America Is Drowning in the Left’s Lies About Trump. Dennis Prager – “The major news media need to understand these are important reasons that half of America considers them frauds.

“The reason we don’t recoil when the president labels the mainstream media “fake news” is that we know the charge is true. Has one major media news outlet yet apologized to the American people for preoccupying them for nearly two years with the lie of “Trump collusion” with Russia? Has one Democrat? Of course not. Because with regard to the Trump-Russia collusion issue, the news media were never driven by a pursuit of truth; they were driven by a pursuit of Trump.

P.S. I just learned that within hours of PragerU posting “The Charlottesville Lie,” Google placed it on YouTube’s restricted list — just two weeks after a Senate hearing at which a Google representative swore under oath that Google doesn’t censor on the basis of political views. The ease with which the left lies is breathtaking.

Mass murderers and the politics blame game… neo – “The attempt to pigeonhole a crazy sociopathic murderer into one political group or other, in particular in order to hurt Trump, is standard and predictable. … All of it is garbage.” The blaming is garbage, the blaming behavior is revealing.

Fake news: an open letter to the Editor of the Washington Post. Christopher Monckton – “Yet again, the hard-Left Washington Post has libeled Dr Willie Soon, whom many of us know to be one of the most dedicated scientists in single-minded pursuit of the objective truth about global warming. If you agree with the following Letter to the Editor, please write your own letter and send it in to the Washpot.
