Suggestion made to Trump to close White House press room because main stream media so intent on publishing negative and damaging fake news

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has become an expert on hostile media in his decades as a conservative on the national scene — and now he’s proposing a way for President Donald Trump to beat liberal bias that reporters won’t like at all.

In a terse interview conducted by phone with Politico, the former Georgia congressman said that the president ought to “close down the White House press briefing room” and that reporters “should be banished to a nearby Starbucks.”

“I am personally offended by the American news media,” Gingrich said. “I think they are destructive and disgusting. They are a danger to the country right now.”

Instead of a press briefing, Gingrich said White House spokesman Sean Spicer should field questions from the American people.  “Just say to the American people, ‘you get to choose,’” Gingrich said. He added that the closure would send a message “that the media is a corrupt institution and (Trump) is tired of being harassed by people whose only interest is making him look bad.”

Gingrich also said that the press “are nuts” and that reporters should not print any information they cannot attach a name to.  Gingrich’s terse remarks echo what he wrote in an op-ed for Fox News earlier this week, when he declared that “the President does not owe anything to the Washington press corps and the left-wing hypocrites who dominate today’s news media.”

“Since Watergate, the news media has acquired a steadily more arrogant attitude and has moved further and further to the left,” Gingrich wrote. “Today, they are adversarial opponents of conservatives — especially the Trump administration.  I learned the hard way as speaker of the House that I could not regularly meet with reporters on camera,” he recalled. “They set up an arena for gotcha questions. Reporters gained imaginary points for finding stupid, narrow, often irrelevant things to argue over. Instead of being an opportunity for a genuine public dialogue, the daily on-camera briefings became a bloody battleground — totally to my disadvantage. Within a few weeks, we were forced to stop.”

Gingrich’s words were harsh but true. This is a press corps that has declared since day one that it’s open season on the Trump administration.

Gingrich’s prescription may be a radical one, but something radical needs to be done about today’s rampant and blatant media bias.

Hillary starts “dark money” effort to mess things up in Washington a little more

Hillary seeks "dark money"

Failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton announces the formation of a nonprofit organization which aims to encourage citizens to “Resist, insist, persist, enlist.”

The former secretary of state unveiled her Onward Together 501(c)(4) non-profit via Twitter, claiming she’s spent the last few months reflecting on her defeat.

On the Onward website, the group claims its mission is to advance “the vision that earned nearly 66 million votes in the last election.”

“By encouraging people to organize, get involved, and run for office, Onward Together will advance progressive values and work to build a brighter future for generations to come,” the site states.

“The challenges we face as a country are real. But there’s no telling what we can achieve if we approach the fights ahead with the passion and determination we feel today, and bring that energy into 2017, 2018, 2020, and beyond.”

By registering as a 501(c)(4), Clinton’s new organization can accept unlimited amounts of money from donors whose names are not required to be disclosed, notes NTKnetwork.com.

501(c)(4)s differ from Super PACs in that the latter must disclose donors.

“If you are a donor looking to influence election but do not want to reveal your identity, the 501(c)(4) is an attractive option through which to send your cash,” writes the Washington Post.

Also, contributions to Onward “are not tax deductible as charitable contributions or as business deductions” as a result of the 501(c)(4) status.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Hillary campaigned against “dark money” being permitted to influence politics.  NTKNetwork notes: “In October 2015, during a town hall meeting in Iowa, Clinton called 501(c)(4) groups ‘unaccountable dark money,’ and even used the left’s favorite boogey-men, the Koch brothers, as an example of a group that operates this kind of organization.”   Now she apparently thinks the more “dark money,” the better.

 

[From an article published by INFO WARS]

 

NORM ‘n’ AL Note:  Here’s another perfect example of what’s wrong with the Democrat approach to politics, and why Hillary Clinton lost the election to Donald Trump.  People were sick to death of hearing Mrs. Clinton speak out of both sides of her mouth.  She has always had a real problem with truth-telling and consistency.  Before the election she didn’t like “dark money” at all, but after losing the election, she thinks there is absolutely no reason not to pursue it.  Bill Clinton started a foundation to provide assistance to worthy causes, but almost immediately discovered the worthiest cause was himself.  (And now that he can’t peddle his connection to a sitting secretary of state any longer, not to mention to a new president, he’s trying to peddle himself as an author of third-rate novels to keep the cash flowing.  The Clintons have no idea what it means to live a life of honor and integrity.  To extend an offer of help to the Trump White House is the farthest thing from their minds; all they can think of is how to impede and destroy anything Mr. Trump wants to do. Of course, Hillary calls it “building a brighter future for generations to come,” but that’s just another example of her inability to distinguish truth from lies.)

Clinton and Obama doing nothing today but impeding Democrats

Who are President Donald Trump’s two best friends in politics?

Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. You see their smirks and those six bloody elbows between the three of them, and you figure this is no relationship.

But it is a relationship that works for the president because they keep bringing up his favorite subject. And it works fine for Barack and Hillary because it fills their egos with a mighty wind.

It just doesn’t work for the Democratic Party or for the USA.

It is a relationship that benefits Trump, because every time Obama or Clinton open their mouths, America is reminded of what was rejected in 2016 — Clinton’s presidential hopes and Obama’s dreams that she’d keep his “legacy” intact…whatever that legacy might be. (NORM ‘n’ AL Note: Most Americans, if they are still able to be objective and honest after eight years of being lied to by both Obama and Clinton, know there is no legacy whatsoever.)

Trump doesn’t much want to talk about Washington Republicans peeling the skin off his populism. They’ve been peeling Trump the way a crafty TV hillbilly might peel an apple, sitting on a porch swing, telling stories in a bad sitcom with a pig named Arnold and canned laughter.

But if there’s one thing Trump loves talking about, it’s the 2016 election, and how the media was (and is) against him, and how those snotty liberals swinging their basket of deplorables lost the working class and blue-collar Midwestern states.

So what do Hillary and Barack do? They keep serving up 2016 on the tips of their silvery tongues.

They feed their egos and get face time, and Barack spins some fantasy about actually caring about Chicago.

And Hillary, having announced that she’s finally come out of the woods to visit us, spins us her favorite Russian fairy tale.

Entertaining, yes, but it hurts the Democratic Party. By refusing to go away, they prevent the party from evolving. And without developing some cogent theme besides Boiling the Rich, and Hating Trump, without grooming and nurturing new vibrant personalities, the Democratic Party is in serious trouble.

Jealousy isn’t a strategy. Envy and identity politics and obstructionism aren’t either. Even the amusing symptoms of Trump Derangement Syndrome get old. Months of hysteria and primal screams and jabbering can dull the senses of sensible people. Soon, it will jump the shark, as late-night TV jester Stephen Colbert jumped it the other day, jumping hard up and down on his corporate advertisers.

Yet as long as Barack and Hillary haunt us, the Democrats can’t grow. Yes, they’re beloved by their partisans. And each time they appear, you’ll find adoring pundits wagging their tails like Labrador puppies, wetting the carpets with joy.

But it doesn’t help the Democratic Party. It helps only Hillary and Barack.

Smart Democrats understand this. They see Obama casting himself as some kind of Jedi master of young community organizers — as he cashes in and they groan.

They see Clinton as some Blanche DuBois in a pants suit, spinning her airy fantasies and believing them even as she dredges up all those painful subjects, from FBI Director James Comey to her thousands of classified emails on unsecured servers.

Smart professional Democrats see all this and wonder: “For the love of God, will they please just go away?” But they won’t. They’re too needy, like a pair of Nosferatu drawing sustenance from Democratic young.

Obama visited Chicago and promoted plans for his Great Temple to Himself, also known as his presidential library, near a stunning new golf course proposed for Jackson Park.

The original temple design reportedly wasn’t flashy enough for Obama, so a grander one was sketched, and he may even visit, with his golf clubs. Here’s how the Obama Temple should be built: with a series of reflecting pools, and along the edges, statues of Obama at different stages of his life, so that he might stare into his reflection for all of eternity.  NORM ‘n’AL Note:  Eternity is soon going to become the biggest problem of Obama’s miserable life, as he finally sees only in his rear-view mirror what he might have made of it, but didn’t. The same will certainly become true for Hillary as well.

But outside the Obama Temple, Chicago remains a violent bloodbath, innocents and thugs dropping every day in the city’s street gang wars. He did nothing about it as president for eight years. There was talk, yes, but nothing real, no jobs, nothing.

There should be a sign out front: “Obama helped Iran more than he ever helped Chicago.”

Every day and every night, the West and South sides bleed and roll over on the sidewalks, another deadly spring turning into another deadly summer.

And Hillary? When she announced, in that chirping voice, that she’d come out of the woods, I tried not to think of a tiny hut on chicken feet, magically moving from glen to glen. And the other day she told another Russian fairy tale of her own. She blamed the Russians hacking into the DNC emails for her loss. And Comey for disclosing another investigation into her own classified emails just before the election. And she insisted that she would have been president if the election had been held Oct. 27.

It was pathetic.

If “the election had been on October 27, I would have been your president,” she said. “And it wasn’t.”

And if there were no iceberg, we’d never remember the Titanic.

David Axelrod, a crafty pro, the Merlin who turned Obama into a president with one speech, wished she’d just stop talking.

“It takes a lot of work to lose to Donald Trump,” Axelrod told CNN, adding that no one in America wants to relive the election, “except the combatants who keep going back to it.”

But she loves it back there, doesn’t she? And so does President Trump.

Israel celebrates 69th anniversary of its independence while the UN continues to condemn the Mideast’s only democracy for its “occupation” of the only country it has ever known

“Palestinians hemorrhaging support for their continued anti-Israel resolutions”

As Israel celebrated its 69th Independence Day on Tuesday,  UNESCO — the cultural arm of the United Nations — voted by a 22-10 margin (with 23 abstentions and three absences) to approve a resolution that condemned what it called Israel’s “illegal” presence in Jerusalem.
However, the number of “yes” votes was down from similar past resolutions — a development one watchdog group viewed as progress.
“Israel lost the vote today, but it did score a moral victory by winning more votes than ever before, including from leading democratic members like the US, Britain, Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands,” Hillel Neuer — executive director of the Geneva-based UN Watch NGO -told The Algemeiner.
“The Palestinians at UNESCO are hemorrhaging support for their ritual anti-Israel resolutions: last April they had 33 yes votes, then in October it was down to 24, and today it’s down to 22.
And once again, India — an increasingly important friend of Israel — has voted to abstain, showing that its recent break from decades of lockstep voting with the Arab states is now a fixed policy.”
The resolution passed on Tuesday stated that “all legislative and administrative measures and actions taken by Israel, the occupying Power, which have altered or purport to alter the character and status of the Holy City of Jerusalem, and in particular the ‘basic law’ on Jerusalem, are null and void and must be rescinded forthwith.”
Holy sites outside Jerusalem were also included in the resolution. Two shrines sacred to Jews — the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron and Rachel’s Tomb in Bethlehem — were defined by the resolution as the “two Palestinian sites of Al-Haram Al-Ibrahimi/Tomb of the Patriarchs in Al-Khalil/Hebron and the Bilal Ibn Rabah Mosque/Rachel’s Tomb in Bethlehem.” Both, the resolution said, “are an integral part of the Occupied Palestinian Territory.”
The resolution also “deplored” what it described as “the continuous Israeli closure of the Gaza Strip, which harmfully affects the free and sustained movement of personnel, students and humanitarian relief items.”
Israeli officials were likely to be pleased with the list of countries that either abstained from the vote or opposed the resolution.
Abstentions included Albania — which has a Muslim majority — and four African states with whom Israel now enjoys revived relations: Ghana, Guinea, Kenya and Uganda.
The US voted against the resolution, as did key European nations like France, Germany, Greece, Lithuania and the Netherlands.
There was a similar lack of consensus among the Latin American delegates.
Paraguay voted against, while Argentina — an ally of Iran before current President Mauricio Macri defeated incumbent Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner in the November 2015 election — also abstained.
Other abstentions included the Dominican Republic and El Salvador. Brazil was the only Latin American country to vote “yes.”
Arab and Muslim states, among them Qatar and Iran — both of whom have extensive financial and political ties with the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas — voted overwhelmingly in favor.
Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon condemned the passage of the resolution, which was entitled “Occupied Palestine.”
“This biased and blatantly deceitful decision, and the attempts to dispute the connection between Israel and Jerusalem, will not change the simple fact that this city is the historic and eternal capital of the Jewish people,” Danon said. “Israel will not stand silently by in the face of this shameful resolution.”
Earlier on Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at the International Bible Contest in his nation’s capital, “There is no other people in the world for whom Jerusalem is as holy and important as for the Jewish people, even though a meeting will take place at UNESCO today that will try to deny this historical truth.”
[From an article published by PROPHECY NEWS WATCH]
NORM ‘n’ AL Note:  How do you suppose you and all your country’s citizens would feel if the UN continually told you (and the rest of the world) that you were illegally occupying YOUR country?  Israel has thousands of years of well-documented history behind it and the land it calls home, but that seems to make no difference at all to the UN.  Why does the USA continue to support this rogue and ruthless organization?  Maybe we should tell the UN that we think it is illegally occupying all of its New York buildings and give them 90 days to vacate.  Think that might wake them up?

What happens when humanity’s “stupidity bubble” finally bursts?

Seems like humanity is striving for "peak idiocy."

It has now become abundantly obvious to all thinking people that humanity has reached “peak idiocy.” This cognitive bubble of idiocy is reflected across all the following suicidal, destructive things that humanity does to itself in the name of power or profit:

  • The ramping up toward nuclear war with Russia and China. “[T]he insane, crazed monsters who rule over the West in Washington are bringing life on earth to an end,” explains Paul Craig Roberts.
  • The mass poisoning of the human food supply with cancer-causing glyphosate weed killer (herbicide).
  • The mindless pursuit of AI technology with no regard for what happens when AI systems decide humans are no longer needed.
  • The mass injection of children and expectant mothers with mercury, a brain-damaging heavy metal formulated into flu shots.
  • The total government lunacy of giving poor people food stamp money so they can buy processed junk food that causes cancer, diabetes and heart disease. (Food stamps should be limited to nutritious foods, not junk foods.)
  • The devolution of the mainstream media into fake news distractions and fictional theories to occupy the minds of the gullible masses.
  • The mass psychiatric medication of children and adults with mind-altering chemicals.
  • The SWAT team assaults on raw milk retailers and farmers who only seek to offer real food to customers.
  • The mass surveillance of the population by a totalitarian police state government that respects no rights, no laws and no privacy of its citizens.
  • The total abandonment of logic and reason by the intolerant, irrational Left and its pursuit of “identity politics” above all else.
  • The chemical suicide of humanity supported by the political Right, which has never met a profitable chemical it didn’t like.
  • The widespread poisoning of public water supplies with brain-damaging fluoride.
  • The economic insanity of running societies on unsustainable debt while pretending that debts don’t matter.
  • The medical lunacy of a world which goes out of its way to suppress knowledge of natural, botanical remedies while pushing for the mass poisoning of the entire population with high-profit pharmaceutic chemicals that only make people more sick and diseased.
  • The lunacy of the nuclear power industry which subjects all humanity to “global killer” nuclear meltdown risks due to the laws of physics (and poor power plant design).
  • The ridiculous belief that pension and retirement funds — including social security — will be able to pay out all their obligations without going bankrupt.
  • A public education system that refuses to teach children how to think for themselves and instead functions as an indoctrination system that demands obedience and conformity above all else.
  • The runaway stupidity of those who are piling money into overvalued tech stocks in the current stock market bubble, oblivious to P/E ratios, the history of market bubbles and why all financial bubbles come to an end.
  • The magical thinking of “scientists” who have created a mindless climate change cult of obedient zombies through a determined program of mass hypnosis of the population, which now hallucinates “climate change” causes behind every flood, drought, tornado or hurricane.
  • The idiocy of betting the entire sustainability of modern civilization on a power grid that will be taken out by space weather (Coronal Mass Ejection) events which NASA predicts will occur at about a 12% chance every decade.
  • The social structure of living in cities which are designed as “death traps” with no sustainable sources of food or water in the event of a catastrophic collapse.

I could go on, obviously. “Peak idiocy” has now achieved never-before-witnessed levels of irrationality, delusion, magical thinking and denial in every sector of society. There isn’t a single thing in society today that isn’t touched by peak idiocy: Government, education, finance, food, medicine, science, history, housing, mental health and so on.

It’s not hard to find examples of what happens when peak idiocy takes hold in a given nation, driving its citizens to irrationality and delusion. America is right now perched on that tipping point, where the nation could easily fall into an unstoppable, self-reinforcing cycle of runaway idiocy on the political spectrum, eventually descending into something a lot like China’s “Cultural Revolution” which mass murdered intellectuals and established that nation’s current communist regime (complete with mandatory organ harvesting, imprisoning those who speak of political dissent, and blocking all websites the government doesn’t like).

Socialist Venezuela is a prime example of peak idiocy run amok. There, the population voted for exactly the idiot leadership they got: A mindless, moronic tyrant named Maduro who sits atop one of the world’s largest oil reserves but still can’t figure out how to enable his own people to not starve to death. Venezuela’s temperate climate allows abundant food production, yet the people there are digging through dumpsters in a desperate bid to stay alive. How can this be?

The answer is that Venezuela has reached its own “peak idiocy” rooted in Left-wing socialist delusions about economics, liberty and private property. When the Left takes hold of anything, it quickly destroys it, leaving behind a wake of human suffering, violence and death. Today’s Venezuela is tomorrow’s America is we don’t stop the delusional Left at every opportunity.

North Korea is another example of peak idiocy on parade. Under the iron fist of Kim Jong Un, a sociopathic cult leader who has carried on his father’s tradition of demanding he be worshiped by his cult followers (i.e. Nork citizens), Kim Jong Un has maintained political power by cutting off North Korea from the outside world and making his followers believe their misery is all America’s fault. Notably, North Koreans must adhere to the same kind of censorship, politically correct speech and delusional thinking that you now find spreading like a pandemic across California’s universities (like Berkeley).

America’s peak idiocy is found in the suicidal failures of the country to protect its own borders, its inability to limit voting rights to legal citizens, Obama’s transformation of the U.S. military into a transgender social experiment, the government’s runaway debt spending and the astonishing inability of the Republican majority in power to stand up for any principle whatsoever. The nation seems to be run by the mindless memes of a deliberately anti-American corporate media that’s deliberately pushing for a kind of Cultural Revolution overthrow of the government (and a nationwide descent into communist rule). This, of course, is parlayed as “tolerance.”

In all these cases, idiocy has been accelerated by the rush toward political correctness and so-called “tolerance” (which really means intolerance and the mass murder of those who do not conform to Leftist views). All the signs are already evident that America is careening toward the same outcome as China, North Korea or Venezuela, especially among Leftist student cultists who are just itching for a civil war so they can shoot and murder as many non-conformists as possible. Read up at this SHTFplan.article: There Will Be Blood: Left Prepares For War After Berkeley Beat Down: “Combat Training, Better Equipment, Guns…”

What happens when the peak idiocy bubble bursts?

When “peak idiocy” is achieved by a critical mass of nations and leaders, insane things start to happen. Sadly, those “insane things” right now include the realm of nuclear weapons capable of obliterating tens of millions of people in a flash. Paul Craig Roberts sums it up nicely when he says:

The chances are high that life on earth is approaching its end. The responsibility lies heavily on the American people, whose success, due to the mistakes of others, made Americans think that they are exceptional and privileged. Unaware of the inhumane threat to all life that is embodied in the neoconservative claim that Americans are exceptional and indispensable, the self-satisfied American public is unaware of the consequences of such hubris. Hubris is leading them, and the entire world, to slaughter in thermo-nuclear war.

Roberts, by the way, is one of the most rational and level-headed people who has ever served in Washington. A former official under the Reagan administration, Roberts remembers a time when leaders in Washington behaved with rationality instead of runaway hubris and insanity. Those days, sadly, are long gone. Today, Roberts is vilified by the same mainstream media that attacks, defames and slanders any person who utters a single rational thought rooted in reality rather than delusion. In a world of deception, telling the truth has truly become a revolutionary act.

Conclusion: Peak idiocy leads to apocalyptic outcomes

We are all now living under the rule of truly delusional governments and dangerous, monopolistic corporate monstrosities such as Google, Facebook and Amazon.

Many governments of the world are right now on the verge of being overrun by their own people who are finally waking up to the utter failure of government idiocy. Everywhere you look, governments are precariously situated on the edge of the abyss: Brazil, Venezuela, Ecuador, the United States, Greece, Italy, France, Britain, Syria, Russia, North Korea, China and even Japan in some ways. Every one of these governments is just one critical event away from losing its grip — most likely through financial collapse — and being overthrown by its own angry, starving, impoverished populations who have been incessantly exploited, abused and lied to by corrupt government. Even Canada is about to undergo a brutal real estate bubble crash that will send many urban-dwelling Canadians into fits of anger and protest.

Governments are, almost by definition, incompetent organizations rooted in the desire for self preservation. This tells you that when they begin to lose control, they will start as many wars as necessary to try to maintain power.

International WAR is the ultimate demand mandate for domestic obedience. When governments begin to lose control, they ignite wars in order to keep their own people in line. This is “peak idiocy” achieving its full, glorious potential, where the mass destruction of entire foreign cities is deemed a necessary strategy for incompetent, corrupt government institutions to maintain power over their domestic populations.

We have now reached that point in human history. There is no walking this back, either, because the people of the world are increasingly coming to recognize that governments no longer serve the needs of human societies. The very idea of a centralized government, in other words, is becoming increasingly obsolete.

This is when large, national governments are the most dangerous: When they are approaching the possibility of their own extinction or abandonment. It is at this moment that we now face the greatest risk for the peak idiocy phenomenon to explode into a global suicide pact of nuclear exchange from which no nation can possibly emerge without severe damage to life, infrastructure, crop soils and the environment.

In other words, Kim Jong Un isn’t the only insane leader on this planet. ALL governments are insane. ALL governments are suicidal. ALL governments are willing to murder tens of millions of innocent people if that’s what is necessary to stay in power.

We the People now watch in bewilderment as our world spirals out of control, with widespread extinction at the hands of incompetent government colliding with the mass mental conformity and delusional thinking demanded by the intolerant, insane Left. This cannot end well. This will not end in peace, humility, compassion and love for thy neighbor. It is vastly more likely to end in war, destruction, suffering, violence and the rise of totalitarian governments worldwide.
