    There has been a long-standing effort by the media – both news and entertainment – to influence and direct the path of the culture. With the news, it is the manipulation or omission of facts (with entertainment, it is manipulation of emotions). Because this manipulation is being done by those with a progressive or radical agenda, that effort is at least in part directed toward sowing discord, division, and chaos; because in chaos, the people cry out for a savior, i.e.,greater government control.

    It’s just that there don’t really seem to be any “right horses” anymore.

    “Conscience.” I guess that’s another term we need to redefine.

    The lesson to take away from this is: We can trust NO ONE in government! This is the cloth apathy despondence and rebellion are made from.

    What differences? The velocity of their march toward progressivism? I used to believe there was a profound difference between them and their parties. Now…not so much. I voted for Bush twice, but he finally got me to quit the party that quit me first ( I signed up for the conservative ticket).

    “The priority for the U.S. government is to win the war against the Islamic State and destroy them,” Rapp said. “It’s been profoundly disappointing, because the idea of accountability has been such a low priority.”

    Is it really so surprising for this malAdministration to conveniently overlook such egregious human rights violations by ISIS because of a “lack of accountability,” when it cannot even tackle the issue of accountability within its own ranks? Low priority? How about “No priority” — unless it is used against theirr own political foes?

    “The bureau denied Abedin’s request for a copy of the exchange and has refused to make the details of the conversation public. FBI lawyers defended the decision by citing “presidential communications privilege,” an adaptation of executive privilege that allows information to be withheld despite Freedom of Information Act requests.”

    If Obama was hiding his identity, it’s pretty obvious he knew something was wrong and that he needed to protect himself. At least, that’s what a prosecutor would say if one of the “little people” were on trial.

    The dominoes of this malAdministration aren’t just falling, they’re cascading, and they will drag a lot of other debris along with them.

    The ‘big tent’ has crushed another soul under the weight of political extortion (“Play by our rules or you don’t get any support for reelection” – paraphrasing Reince Priebus).

    Cruz apparently feels his political future is more valuable than his principles.

    Someone at that school has a serious case of headupmyassitis.

    This reminds me of an old saying: “Show me your friends, and I’ll show you your future.” Sadly, it also reminds me of many conversations with Trump supporters. While many are well-intentioned, it’s like an (allegorical) septic tank, in that the crap often rises to the top, which (translated,) means the sane voices don’t get heard.

    Is ISIS ramping up the horror level by (re-)introducing chemical warfare? If so, could the ‘kid gloves’ eventually come off as warfare spreads to other countries and regions? The world is not headed in the right direction, and world wars have started over relatively minor incidents.

    Some ideas may seem fine in a sound-bite or as an off-the-cuff, reflexive remark, but are really impractical in the real world. As well-intentioned as Trump’s suggestion might be, it would only add fuel to the fires of hatred. Whether he does it in black communities only, or in every community, it would effectively nail the national coffin for turning the US into a ‘police state’ where you could be stopped and frisked (and humiliated, and angered) by the local Gestapo at any moment.

    When one or both sides start shouting, neither side bothers to listen, and the divide gets bigger.

    Oops. this must be a mistake. The “Man of the People” would never stoop to using his own charity funds for personal use, right? I mean, didn’t the Clinton’s get accused of doing the same thing? Besides, they’re both ‘stinkin’ rich, so they don’t need to do that, right?

    Here’s an important grammar/definition lesson to keep in mind, pertaining to this election cycle:

    Hey, Josh; you’re partly right. We are in a “narrative war” with Islam. Unfortunately, YOU are on the wrong side of it. And no, it isn’t “just a war of narratives.” It’s also a shooting/bombing/killing war where real people are bleeding and dying. And you have the taste of blood in your lying mouth.

    Oh, and she abandoned our ambassador and other Americans who were literally under enemy fire.

  • [1] September 20, 2016 at 10:08am

    Let’s see: she oversaw the transfer of weapons to groups which were tied to al-Queda and turned into ISIS; she guided us into a war (without congressional approval) which removed Libya’s Kadhafi (who had actively restrained those Islamist groups), she supported the ‘Arab Spring’ movement that installed the Morsi regime (which persecuted Egyptian Christians without mercy), and she has betrayed friendly intelligence assets and other secrets via her illegal emails.

    Yeah; she knows how to do the job…WRONGLY.

    “Islam offers answers, and it wins converts. They are the wrong answers, of course, but they are answers at least. Islam speaks about the soul, about eternity, about spirituality and about all of the other profound, transcendent things that liberalism denies or ignores, even though all human beings deeply hunger for them. Islam may not say the right things about those subjects, but because it says anything at all about them, it wins.”

    Absolutely right on point, Matt. In a (spiritual) vacuum, even a fart reigns supreme. Christianity is the ONLY positive solution to the problem of Islamism. Unfortunately, Christianity is also the ONLY solution that the powers-that-be will NOT accept, because chaos helps them to maintain that power. Until we can emplace leaders who actually have souls, we will continue being led to enslavement and destruction by the soulless.

    A few months ago, it almost looked like CNN was turning over a new leaf, trying to actually be objective. Apparently, not so much. It has reverted to competing with MSNBC for the title of ‘Pravda USA’. (the complete irony isn’t lost that “pravda” is “truth” in Russian.)

    Oops. A ‘gun-free zone’ wasn’t. His bad.
