Bill O’Reilly joined Roger Ailes in enforced retirement on Wednesday. Both were accused of sexual harassment. Not to worry though. CNN Money says O’Reilly’s golden parachute falls just a little south of the $25 million contract he recently signed. That compares to his former boss’s $40 million bail out.

Congressman Bridenstine’s effort to get his message to the citizens of Oklahoma requires an objective media. Sometimes that leaves any elected official very frustrated and even apprehensive about the fairness of the press.  At tonight’s town hall event I decided to focus on how the professional media does their job and what kind of package of information they produce. I talked with several of them and found them all to be engaging, courteous, and intent on […]


The Spoils of War: Trump Lavished With Media and Bipartisan Praise For Bombing Syria

But U.S. war fever waits for nothing. Once the tidal wave of American war frenzy is unleashed, questioning the casus belli is impermissible. Wanting conclusive evidence before bombing commences is vilified as sympathy with and support for the foreign villain (the same way that asking for evidence of claims against Russia instantly converts one into a “Kremlin agent” or “stooge”

Paul Craig Roberts: “In America Today, Facts Cannot Compete With Lies”

Authored by Paul Craig Roberts,

Unable to provide an ounce of evidence that a Trump/Putin conspiracy stole the presidential election from Hillary Clinton, the corrupt US “intelligence” agencies are shifting their focus to social media and to Internet sites such as Alex Jones and Breitbart. Little doubt the FBI investigation will trickle down to Glenn Greenwald at The Intercept, Zero Hedge, the Ron Paul Institute, Nomi Prins, Naked Capitalism, Lew Rockwell, Global Research, antiwar.com, and to others on the PropOrNot, Harvard Library, and Le Monde lists, such as top Reagan administration officials David Stockman and myself. It is extraordinary that the FBI is so desperate to protect the budget of the military/security complex that it brings such embarrassment to itself. Who in the future will believe any FBI report or anything a FBI official says?

Those behind this “investigation” understand that it is so ridiculous that they must give it gravity and credibility. They selected two reporters, Peter Stone and Greg Gordon, in the McClatchy News Washington Bureau, who fit Udo Ulfkotte’s definition of “bought journalists.” Hiding behind anonymous sources—“two people familiar with the inquiry” and “sources who spoke on condition of anonymity”—the presstitutes fell in with the attack on independent media, reporting that one former US intelligence official said: “This may be one of the most highly impactful information operations in the history of intelligence.” http://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/politics-government/white-house/article139695453.html

Hillary lost the election to Trump. It could be that she was a weak establishment candidate while Trump tapped into a deep vein of voter anger and resentment. Or it could be that Russians stole the election. Russians FBI Director Comey told the House Intelligence Committee that the latter explanation is under federal investigation. But he offered no evidence

  Deep Throat was the secret source who led Woodward and Bernstein to break the Watergate story that brought down Richard Nixon. I never heard of Deep State until a few weeks ago.  That’s when quotes from unnamed sources started turning up in news stories about alleged connections between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

Media relations with President Trump hit a new low when he dubbed the press the enemy of the American People. Last August The Atlantic compared Trump’s authoritarian tendencies to the rise of Mussolini. And two days after the election in November the New Republic claimed Trump was already acting like an authoritarian. But National Review says he’s less authoritarian than

It is well known that the Federal Reserve System expanded its assets more than four-fold during and after the 2007-09 financial crisis by making massive purchases of mortgage-backed securities and Treasuries. The balance sheet has not returned to normal since. Total Fed assets stand today at $4.45…
