    Morning! Chips, these photos are exactly what we need for a Friday morning–an antidote to a week of Republican hatred and bigotry.

    before the most recent clown debate, the media was setting up some candidates to “surprise”, “get noticed” , or “recover”.

    you could tell this was the plan because multiple media outlets had the same story running;

    now you can here the different media presenters working double hard to make their plot line come true – or as they call it “change the dynamics of the race”;

    amazing how much media outlets manipulate the masses

      Global, that’s why this morning’s e-mail had a NYT headline that said “Carly Fiorina gives Republicans a Path to Women.” I did not want to start my day with acid indigestion so I didn’t click on it, but it made me furious to consider how low the NYT has come in their frenzy to promote Republicans. Carly Fiorinia is a far right, lying, failed business woman who has never been elected to anything and has the empathy and emotional resonance of a tin can. But, oh, yes, she has the right body parts, so I guess that’s the so-called “pathway” to women who, after all, must be completely brainless and without judgment. Fiorina will be pushed on a hapless American electorate for a while and then they’ll begin pushing Kasich, as the reasonable one, even though he has been systematically going about destroying Ohio.

    So the media is trying to convince us that the man in the audience calling the President a Muslim, and saying that they need to get rid of Muslims, does not represent Donald Trump supporters. We know the truth, Trump is a racists and the tea party Republicans have flock to him and the media knows that. I blame the media for Trump because they help make him, they gave him free air time, they cover everything he said,even though he says nothing, but racists and sexists things. Why would David Duke a racists klansman support Donald Trump? If Duke like what he is saying there are plenty more who loves it too. CBS News gets two people from Trump audience and ask them, do that guy represent Trump’s supporters, course they was going to say no.

    Good Morning, Everyone 🙂

  9. September 18, 2015 at 8:53 am

    Oh, So NOW…they care about the ‘ Obama is a Muslim’ lie?

    After they pushed it, and hemmed and hawed and pretended not to notice as it spread through the GOP.

    Because they need to get rid of Trump.

      Rikyrah, the Republican/billionaire/media complex is convinced that we are all stupid and can’t follow their plot. I hope there are enough people who are still awake, aware, and sane in this country to prove them wrong on a very grand scale. We need a massive coalition of the sane to counter what’s being pushed at us. I continue to harbor the belief that there are more of us than there are of them, but we have to make ourselves heard and we have to work hard to both identify and motivate each other.

        We need a very strong, articulate leader in the Dem Party to be on the offensive about all of this, and touting our successes, but crickets from DWS. I am very worried.

    Good morning, Chips and TOD.
    And a beautiful morning it is in NYC. Sun shining brightly warm but not too hot.

    First a Head’s Up—on Steven Colbert tonight Lupita Nyongo and Bernie Sanders.

    Next on the plus side the NY Times covers the announcements PBO will be making today about increased trade with Cuba.

    Also on the plus side is an article about the movement we have been seeing at Gitmo. I think something significant is on its way.

    On the Negative side the article about the Iran Deal feeds the “scary Iran” point of view and
    Of Course
    Ignores the Immense Achievement of PBO, VP Biden, and SOS Kerry. ( Largest NPT ever in the universe—so what)

    No victory lap, dancing in the endzone, celebration of any kind allowed because Black President.

    If the GOP did either of these things—-opening up of Cuba peace with iran—it is hard to imagine that the country would be so subdued.

    The new GOP “path to the women’s vote”;

    • September 18, 2015 at 10:52 am

      Fiorina was a miserable failure here in California both at HP and in her bid to unseat Senator Boxer. The MSM are looking for a new narrative and she fits the bill.

    WOOOOT!!

    So the media has been pushing Trump and his hate at The One… and now suddenly it’s Fiorina, apparently to pull in The Women. Ultimately, I believe their Chosen One is actually Jeb. But who knows. I find it interesting that they’re all giving Trump a big pass today on the ‘getting rid of Muslims’ comments HE made in that video. Good ole media pushing the line that he just didn’t correct his supporter’s comments.

      it will be jeb!. this craziness now is all for show and to set him up the reasonable one. he was chosen a long time ago, and that’s why “the news” has been purposely rehabbing the bush name and record for the past several years. yes, guessing the out-of-the-blue fiorina fluffing is for the v.p. and going against hillary, of course. i was on a sports site yesterday and there were all these “news” links for how great carly is now. was so weird to see there, but shows how pervasive the propaganda is now…

      they did this same thing with mitt rmoney, where they had the crazy front and center for a while to allow mittens to look the sane one, even those his ideas were just as nutty reich-wing nonsense, but was obvious all along mitt was the chosen one.

      even knowing this for a while, i’m still in state of shock that so many people are willing to go along with this given the extreme failure and embarrassment of w. bush not that long ago. i knew “the news” would do this, but amazed at how far they’ve gone with it now, and how transparent it is, but nothing seems to happen to them now since all of the major “news” outlets are now controlled by a few billionaire republicans. the comcast (roberts family) takeover of nbc properties was the final nail in the coffin of journalism in america for the foreseeable future, outside of small, independent groups at least…just gotta hope someone enters the race for the dems who can follow president obama’s lead in how to overcome this. hillary has shown no ability to do this, and i still question whether she’s even bothered by this, considering her husband help bring this media conglomeration onto the world with his championing and signing of the “telecommunications act” in the 1990s. sure hope biden is up for it.
