    NYTimes - Make America Hate Again

    I saw Peter Thiel applauded. I saw men and women of diversity - employees, family members, and unrelated figures (such as the Sheriff) support Trump on economic equality and law and order...two things that have deteriorated under the current administration. I heard Trump reinforce American values to support the LGBTQ community and to reject the violence and hatred directed towards them by radical Islam.

    If you want to criticize Trump for not being a social conservative (however you want to define that), fine. But to write a piece titled "Make America Hate Again" is garbage. Same garbage as "George W. Bush hates black people."

    And Jon Stewart's "You don't own America." http://variety.com/2016/tv/news/jon-stewart-to-trump-supporters-you-dont-own-america-1201820140/
    This is ridiculous. Liberals do not own morality, intellectualism, or the "Right Side of History." And conservatives don't own respect for the military and police...but who do military members and veterans overwhelmingly vote for?

    And again...by the way I DON'T EVEN LIKE TRUMP.

    Vileness and bias are expected in opinion pieces but the supposed news articles are full of hate for Trump not to mention outright lies to support Hillary.
    One "fact checking" of Trump's speech last night reported it was not illegal for Hillary to have her own private server in her basement for our country's State business.:whiteflag:

    That's nothing. Bill Maher, HBO’s “Real Time” host, referred to Trump’s sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, as “Adolf and F*ckface” on Friday.

    Clean?
    That shocks me.:rolleyes1:
    Before this last year I would have thought I'd seen the worst of the liberal media during the Bush years.
    I suspect now that we haven't seen anything yet. As it looks more and more like Hillary could/will lose look for the hatred to be ramped higher than anything we can imagine.
    Calling 2 hardworking men who are related to Trump vile names is just the beginning.

    This was very, very predictable. During the primary season, the media's coverage of Trump was much less vitriolic. They wanted him to win the nomination for obvious reasons. He's an almost limitless source of material and therefore ratings, and of course, he's the easiest Republican for Hillary to beat. Now that the nomination is secured, they're going to go into full scale attack mode on him to turn off independent voters and to motivate liberal voters to turn out for Hillary. It's going to be the most biased coverage and analysis in the history of modern American politics.

    Some like the intellectuals. Some like the name callers. George Will, Charles Kruthammer and Thomas Sowell make an intellectual case for conservatism. Palin, Hannity, Coulter, Limbaugh, Savage... spew insults as fast as they can talk. Colbert, Maher, Stewart, Lewis Black, Samatha Bee ... are entertainers and while they are responsible to get facts right when they are giving facts ... they also have responsibilities as comics to keep it light and draw laughs. Dennis Miller, Jeff Foxworthy, Ted Nugent, Clint Eastwood, entertain from the right. Right wingers like talk radio. Left wingers like late night comics.

    Here CNN prearranges with the DNC questions to get asked by Jake Tapper

    I know some of you here roll your eyes when charges of media bias and media corruption get thrown around. My guess is that this group will be conveniently out of town this weekend

    New Leak: Top DNC Official Wanted to Use Bernie Sanders’s Religious Beliefs Against Him


    "Among the nearly 20,000 internal emails from the Democratic National Committee, released Friday by Wikileaks and presumably provided by the hacker “Guccifer 2.0,” is a May 2016 message from DNC CFO Brad Marshall. In it, he suggested that the party should “get someone to ask” Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders about his religious beliefs.

    From:MARSHALL@dnc.org
    To: MirandaL@dnc.org, PaustenbachM@dnc.org, DaceyA@dnc.org
    Date: 2016-05-05 03:31
    Subject: No ****
    It might may no difference, but for KY and WVA can we get someone to ask his belief. Does he believe in a God. He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he is an atheist. This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist.


    The email was sent to DNC Communications Director Luis Miranda and Deputy Communications Director Mark Paustenbach. It’s unclear who the “someone” in this message could be — though a member of the press seems like a safe bet. A request for comment sent to Marshall was not immediately returned......"

    None of this crap surprises me. So many of these media hacks are former Democratic political hacks or are married to Democratic political hacks. The political media in the US stinks.

    This one is so great

    Hillary's goal?

    See it in yellow -- "Keep the people ignorant."

    Anyone think ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, CNN or MSNBC will cover this? Would make a great 60 Minutes segment (if CBS were not already too corrupt to do it)

    It doesn't surprise me that the DNC tells those news agencies exactly what they want and they get it. It also wouldn't surprise me if the left news channels give the questions in advance to the DNC before the Presidential debates.

    There is so much fascinating information in the @wikileaks' timeline it is amazing.

    Too much stuff to keep transferring it here

    The media would absolutely be blowing up right now if this stuff were instead related to Trump

    Twitter is censoring the Wikileaks tweets

    There are over 550K tweets & none of them are in the top 20 twitter trends

    Orwell shakes his head
