Trumpism: News Fakery and Controlling (You Lose In Either Case)

As this Friday's Trump Inauguration nears, make note of the fact you are the subject of ongoing media related subterfuge from the Right. The latest example of total fascism in media comes from none other than the Right's number one video propagandist. James O'Keefe has been outed for attempting to stage fake violent protests in or around the inauguration festivities.  The Young Turks.
TYT's Eric Byler (htp:// takes you behind the scenes of the counter-sting operation that exposed James O'Keefe, Allison Maass and their propaganda outlet, Project Veritas. Video and audio catch Maass offering to pay money for the incitement of riots at Donald Trump's inauguration. Linked here. Or view 6 minute video below.


How about a bit subterfuge corporate sanctioned Trumpism from CBS news (Atlanta affiliate)? The Atlanta station employs a reporter (or host), Ben Swann, has an obvious mission relative to moving Trumpism forward. He is a mind shaper to the maximum and one to be avoided like a rabid animal.

Towards the end of December, we published a couple of pieces regarding Trumpism messaging. Both pieces centered around broadcasts with Swann's efforts to fulfill a role most TV hosts or reporters would avoid: a mouth-piece for Trumpism and a misinformer par excellence.

Basically, Ben Swann is a Right-wing "newsertainer."
Definition: newsertainers (noun); An employee of a broadcast media network hired to deliver scripted teleprompter scripts, or host a news related show. The media model is characterized via obvious efforts to attract viewers (by any means necessary) and the model is promulgated by his/her employer to literally shape message and information delivered to an audience. The scope and variety of newsertainers runthe gamut from leggy blonds, obvious mis-information purveyros,through Jerry Springer-like panel shows (CNN) to over-talking often cogent hosts on MSNBC.
I offer an excerpt from a December, 29th piece: "Newsertainers", Obama Sanctions On Russia CBS News
A few days ago I ran across the following (below) four minutes video segment from CBS. The segment is supposedly a fact-check which refutes the CIA's claim of Russian interference in the recent General Elections. The video has even garnered favor from die-hard Clinton supporters; an astounding reality. 
As I am not one of the neo-Obama (Administration) critics like the suddenly ever-present Sam Stein) and other far lesser celebrity types like a few of my Facebook friends who are effusing in Obama criticism now that we have four weeks left in Presidency, I do not accept the CBS video as either credible nor newsworthy. It is just another attempt to garner viewers with that new slant: attract both left and right viewers with slick with creatively developed "denial stories."
Why would the CIA desire to fabricate such a story? 

I believe the NSA Chief also commented on its concerns with Putin ordered hacking of the DNC.  Since the CIA and the NSA have issued statements regarding probable Russian election hacking, why should I consider CBS's report anything other than a ratings trap?
If you visited the linked December piece, you know it took less than three days from proper administration handling of Russian election tampering to come forth. You may have also noticed Mr. Swann's assertion of "no evidence" is a common refrain in untruthful denials. Moreover, his lack of insight into the inner workings of matters of INTEL showed like two left shoes. In more common terms, Swann seems to be a right-wing mouthpiece who entertains an audience with little respect for fair and open reporting mixed with what seems a mission to promulgate on behalf of the new administration. He is not a journalist; he is a "newsertainer."

(UPDATE From TYT) Did Someone Say Grand Jury? How About Prosecutor Malfeanse?


Regardless of your thoughts on the guilt or innocence of Darren Wilson, you would have to live the life of a self-centered ideologue to ignore the intricacies the Ferguson Grand Jury. You might be one who cares nothing about Justice for others as long as justice serves you well. Moreover, you may not even care about justice and actually place the fairness and balance of justice in display jars for retrieval at your convenience. 

When the system fails anyone, the system fails us all.  

As we move away from the Darren Wilson Grand jury proceedings, let's observe as details of the process devolve or fizzle into the latest national fiasco agaisnt justice.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell does it like few others. How about a segment of The Last Word.  You will find the 10 plus minutes as educational and relevant as any you may have sat through in years. If we cannot expend time for justice, we deny ourselves a great society.

There is something to be said about deeper cognitive thought accompanied by basic discernible language and communication messages that ensue. The process feeds the brain and insults against those who fall shy of living life with regard to fairness and equality for all. The O'Donnell segment for some should provide an epiphany comparable to something observed within the past year and will never forget.

Watch the figurative epiphany.

Ceck Uygur and Net Neutrality With a Fox News and Ted Cruz Angle

Despite Mitt Romney's proclamation of "corporation are people my friend: Sane people know the corporation is a self-perpetuating, money hungry, and elite entity that provides products and services while opulently compensating the few Top 1 per-center and funding safe politicians and media.  
Cenk Uygur responds to Right-wing authoritarianism regarding the Internet. The Right would like nothing more than limit our ability to interact, share information and basically live free of GOP and corporate "social framing."

Cenk fires of a few "F" bombs, but in this case his words are so very apropos.

GOP Heads Explode Over Obama’s Net Neutrality Announcement

"Never missing an opportunity to remind America how much he resents Obamacare, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) took to Twitter Monday to lash out against President Barack Obama's net neutrality endorsement by comparing it to the health care law.

Earlier Monday, Obama urged the Federal Communications Commission to "implement the strongest possible rules" to protect a free and open Internet in a video message and written statement. 

Cruz, who has openly opposed the FCC's role in modernizing telecommunications laws, responded to the president's statement on Twitter"* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

Need say more? You elected the GOP, now watch them work for American Corporatism and development of the American Oligarchy.

The Daily GOP Ignominious: Sarah Palin

Couldn't you donors get a clue from Palin's dumping Alaska for sake of earnings potential.

Expected and pathetic!
