Stripe is at the Stove

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Sunday, April 7, 2019. Our new friend, Stripe, is in the kitchen preparing Raisin Muffins for our enjoyment. I am beside Stripe mixing up a batch of Irish Coffees to add to the pleasure of our meal. Stripe is worn out. The subject of Russian collusion and obstruction when it concerns President Trump fills him with disgust. The real colluders and obstructionists are out there awaiting the spotlight to fall on them. In the meantime, other issues are cropping up that are not capturing the attention of the feckless media who see their role in life as brainwashers of the unwashed and uninformed masses.

Please join us for breakfast this morning. Stripe has some information he would like to share. Come as soon as you can. You don't want the Irish Coffees to lose their punch.

The Truth the Media is Hiding

Thanks so much for joining Pop and me this morning. I trust you all are as sick of the Russian collusion story as I am. The Dems are carrying on like lunatics hoping to convince Americans that they know the truth. In the warped opinion of the left the 25 million dollars that Mueller spent investigating never got to the truth. They are stuck in an ugly rut that is going nowhere.

In the meantime, events have unfolded that deserve some attention. One such happening concerns the media. There have been cracks occurring in the wall of bias that has overtaken the MSM. To be honest, the media and the DNC are one in the same. However, there are a few reporters who can't take it anymore, and they are speaking out at great risk to their careers One of these reporters is Yashar Ali. He is a beat reporter writing for the liberal Huffington Post and for New York Magazine., He has come forward to say that top editors from NBC News tried their level best to intimidate him on behalf of the DNC. He has written an unflattering story about the Democratic National Committee. He received a threatening phone call from Dafna Linzer, managing political editor for NBC News and MSNBC. The editor tried to convince him to delay publishing his story. The story isn't really mind blowing. It concerned the schedule for the 2020 Democratic primary debates. Apparently, the DNC didn't want the schedule releasesd, so they called upon their partners in crime to get it delayed. Their pressure didn't work. The fact that the efforts of the DNC and the media were revealed is encouraging. We need more reporters to take a long, hard look at their profession and say that they have had enough.

Breaking the Wall of Media Bias

CBS News correspondent Lara Logan, gave an interview on a podcast that she considered to be professional suicide. Logan stepped forward to declare that the media is biased towards the left. Now most of us know that, but it is rare for a correspondent with the MSM to come out and state the obvious. Logan admitted that this bias has become a problem for her. She points out that 85 percent of journalists are registered Democrats. Journalists have become political activists and propagandists. She admits that all the coverage of the president is negative.

While nothing she has said is a surprise, it is rare for anyone in the MSM to tell the outright truth. Maybe she just couldn't sleep at night anymore. The bias serves to manipulate the public and make them pawns of the left. Her outspokenness won't be looked upon favorably by the MSM, but it exposes the death of true journalism. Perhaps her moment of clarity will spread and others will come forward to say they have had enough.

Say Good-bye to Fox

Like it or not, Fox news is fair and balanced when compared to the other stations. They always offer both sides of a story, and they have hosts who are liberal and commentators who are eager to represent the left's point of view. All that may soon change. Lachlan Murdoch and his wife have plans for the channel that most viewers will find abhorrent. The couple is not pleased with the network's support of the president. Murdoch is fed up with Hannity and Tucker Carlson. They would be history as I write this if not for the money these two outspoken men bring in. The fact that Hannity and Carlson bring in the big bucks might not be enough to save them in the end. Judge Pirro has felt the sting of the network. Her troubles may not be over. The handwriting is on the wall. Fox will be changing. The hiring of the impossible to watch, Donna Brazile, is proof that we are going to need another network.

The conservative voice must not be silenced. If we are to remain strong, we need a place in the national dialogue. The voices the are loudest now are those of the left. They are calling for massively dangerous changes to our way of life. Eliminating the Electoral College, eliminating God, ignoring the tragedy and danger at our border, allowing infanticide, legalizing drugs, calling for single payor insurance, demanding reparations for slavery and destroying the wealthy are all ideas that will ruin us if they come to be. God help us if that happens.

      I know what you are saying about the television show and movies, no matter how entertaining they may be they have to ruin it by injecting sex, gay sex, fornication, perversions into it. 70 years ago these shows that are part of our daily entertainment would have been labeled as porn.

      Why do they have to inject in what Is an interesting and entertaining story line, nudity and explicit sex scenes? Really, I liked it when the couple goes in the bedroom door, end of scene, like we don't know what they are doing in there? The writers of these scripts have one interest, to turn the audience into a bunch of voyeurs and to "seep" perversion into their minds.

      But I tuned to the end of modern family one day to see big bang coming on next and caught this which I think bought was hilarious.

      Clever use of Barr

      It is getting really dismal.

      The TV today is really a social reengineering state of the art mind bender. I liken it to how it works with an analogy.

      When people start to work in the ER they are aghast with the blood and the trauma they are immersed in there. This sort of takes the edge off their appetites.

      I guess there are some that are immune to pain and suffering of others as well as life and death at its worse.

      The point is that day after day they are exposed to it, this repulsion diminishes. And finally, you will after some time see them eating with a healthy appetite. They will be eating while wearing on their uniforms the jobs they did that day.

      They have succumbed to repetition making the original shock have less and less impact on them. That is what the TV shows are doing each day.

      It isn't just the "news" shows, it goes to the regular entertainment shows. The creators, writers, and producers of these shows want it to be educational under the guise of entertainment.

      In this century alone, the democrats have re-engineered our social lives and beliefs. They did it slowly at first, but when they got traction when Obama became president they went turbo.

      You can hardly watch a show today that doesn't have one or more of their social conquests. It is "Modern Family" exploded and its parts being interjected in many shows of many categories. This includes their PC which has been put into many scenarios. Maybe it is education so we can learn from their shows and their actors on how we should behave now that we live in the left's idea of how we should think.

      A minor annoyance for me has become a real irritation. Over the last year or two Netflix has been dumping international language shows into the lists of shows in every category. What this does it to fill the list with foreign language shows making it difficult to find English shows.

      Many people speak one language, some may speak two or three, but there dozens of different foreign languages on the list. What are korea speaking people going to get out of watching a Hindu language show.

      My point is why did Netflix decide to put foreign language shows into the main pool. Think about if you went to the book store, while the still exist anyway, and you had to go through hundreds of books to find your language?

      I will be in the inn, playing pool.

      It has gone into how they cast their commercials, and it even spills into the print media advertisement.

      Good Evening Pop:

      Lara Logan was just interviewed by Mark Levin on Sunday night. His show, Life, Liberty and Levin, is on Fox on Sunday at 10:00 PM. I bet if you go to Fox TV and looked it up, you can hear the interview.

      Blaze TV was started by Glen Beck, after he left Fox. A lot of very conservative people have shows on that channel, including Bill O'Reilly.

      The Republicans are quiet by nature, and the Democrats scream the lies; Republicans need to act more like Democrats; the fight for the next election will get very dirty, and the Republicans cannot take the high road.

      I am off to the Inn. Pamela is buying. WOOHOO!

      That will be a good to eat treat.

      Before I go to the inn, I have to ask, why don't the republicans have any investigations going on. Why are they allowing the democrats to influence the 2020 election like they just did with the 2018 election.

      "he Oversight committee has also requested an in-person interview with Falzone, who has said that she reached a settlement with Fox News that prevents her from speaking about the story.

      Fox News did not immediately reply to a request for comment from The Hill.

      The New Yorker reported that Falzone was told by her then-boss at Fox, Ken LaCorte, that the network's owner Rupert Murdoch wanted Trump to win the election, and therefore the story was killed.

      “Good reporting, kiddo. But Rupert [Murdoch] wants Donald Trump to win. So just let it go," LaCorte reportedly said, according to The New Yorker.

      Fox has denied that characterization, pointing to comments from a former executive who said last year that the network did not have enough factual evidence to report on Stormy Daniels's claims against the president."

      B:

      Not enough factual evidence, and that is still true today.

      And once again, I submit, why wasn't Daniels investigated for trying to influence our election, for blackmail or extortion?

      As for journalism, I hope we can return t its core principles. As of now, it is dead in the water. I'm not sure about 2020 and the Republicans. They may not want to go against Trump. After all, despite unprecedented interference and obstruction, he is doing a first class job. Imagine what he could accomplish if Congress were dedicated to doing their jobs? See you at the Inn.

      I am glad to hear there are at least two journalists who are seeing the light and daring to say so. Bill is right, the media bias has been around for decades, however, it has skyrocketed over the last 10 or 15 years. As each year that goes by it becomes more so.

      Both parties are divided within themselves. Interesting that when the Dems took over the house, they began infighting. AOC, IMAR, and a few others have spiked a bit of fury for the oldies like Pelosi, or the whole party. We can see the GND was a bomb - thank goodness. I think AOC and IMAR seem to have worn out their welcome. AOC is passionate and idealistic but is not mature enough based on her failure to do her homework. IMAR seems to be in trouble every other day for antisemitism. That's only the tip of the iceberg.

      On the right, there isn't enough support for Trump, but they don't seem to be unraveling like the left. Over the years it seems to be a pattern. When a majority rules for too long, it begins to break down. I wish there was more bipartisanship in politics and the media.

      Now, a question for you. What do you make of the fact that the Dems have 18 or more people running for president in 2020, and only two for Republicans? Do you think any interested Republicans are stragically waiting for a advantageous time to announce their bid to run?

      When CNN and MSNBC don't air a story about about president Trump of his accomplishment why isn't that the same thing. Since when does the media have to even be reporting the news. It would be nice if they did report it.

      As for the Stormy Daniels, I would submit she could also have committed extortion or blackmail.

      Finally, with both CNN and MSNBC doing a more than full coverage of the Stormy Daniels, why should Fox have had to do it.

      Dear brad,

      Dems in the House are demanding to know why Fox did not publish a story before the 2016 election about an alleged affair years before between Stormy Daniels and Donald Trump. House Committee on Oversight and Reform (HA!) Cummings wrote to former Fox News reporter Dina Falzone last month demanding that she turn over any documents relating to Trump's alleged extramarital affairs. Cummings should be arrested for being the stupidest man alive and believing even for an instant that he has the right to do this!

      I am thrilled that some people are speaking up, as I am so sick and tired of the bias. I am also sick of hearing about Russian collusion also. Enough is enough! I am watching much less news as I am tired of the same stories over and over again! If Fox turns to the left I won't watch it at all. I watch One American News some of the time as they actually give one new event after the other most of the time without editorializing.

      Lara Logan what happened to her from her podcast?

      If the RNC was even one tenth as bad as the DNC they would have a fighting chance, but as we have seen in the last two years the bad part if the RNC is they act like the DNC against Trump. The 12 republicans you wrote about recently should have been as unexpected as the Lara Logan podcast, but it really wasn't a surprise after two years of impotent republicans.

      As for Fox, it is dead men walking. People should let it die, and move on without it. The Fox is dead, and only the name and the memories linger on, as does this dangling participle.

      Why don't the Trump fans boycott cable TV "news", and put some effort into getting your favorite people into competition with the senile cable news media.

      These favorites have made a lot of money, and they should be able to get a new platform that is independent of the new media cabal. That is if they really have what it takes to produce the news.

      In reality the no spin zone really had a spin, it is just that non democrats liked it. As an alternate to commentary news, I would submit that raw news should replace it. Then, it is up to the people to form their own opinion on the unfiltered news.

      Today, even the way that the news is title shows its bias. This may be great for the naive new generation that have been spoon fed and patted on the head for accomplishing nothing, but hopefully there are some intelligent people left to appreciate unfiltered news.

      just a thought.

      I am in total agreement with you. I do feel that the media's bias has grown more extreme. There was a time when viewers were blissfully unaware of a journalists leanings. They reported the news and left their opinions out of it. Now the news has been totally compromised, and that is a very dangerous thing.
