Every single time I go from FOX, (which is covering the virus with statistics, positive and inspiring stories,  the truth of what’s still needed, the arrival of the navy ships to NYC and California, etc)….to CNN, I think “Let’s see all the NEGATIVES NOW…”

And that is ALL IT IS.  Negatives.  Every single time.  Which is appealing to their viewers because LIBERALS LOVE BEING SAD.    This virus thing has really proven what we have all thought.

WELL, DARN!  Here is a terrific article I saw after writing this post ...and you could read this instead of mine and see what I’m talking about:

WHAT IS WITH LIBERALS?   Is this prep for the election?   It feels more to me that they’re negative INSIDE, election year or not……….

AND ELECTION MAKES ME THINK “GOV CUOMO”... WHY is he on for SO LONG every morning?  Yesterday he said “How stupid are the FEDS, why don’t THEY buy all the ventilators and send them to where we need them, why are the STATES trying to buy them?”     (um, Mr. Cuomo, you SHOULD know they’re hard to find right now and companies are gearing up to MAKE THEM…Why aren’t you up on this stuff you find world- alteringly important??  If I know it, you must know it, ADMIT IT!  And I’m sorry your brother Chris on CNN tested positive, by the way)

    Since I steadfastly refuse to watch either talking heads or politicians on TV spouting agenda mantras, I’m aware of the issue only because it pervades the blogosphere.

    My take on it all is that most of the fraudstream media are in phase IV TDS Syndrome and have willfully and completely abjured all standards and ethics traditionally associated with journalism.

    They’ve become unable to ask any question or make any comment which does not criticize, belittle, impugn, or attack Trump.

    MSBNC is in the death throes of a fear-porn epidemic and totally non compos mentis; that is, they’d rather see half the country die of contagion and the other half of starvation than for any of DJT’s policies to bear palatable fruit.

    ….unless one of course is a left wing politician or member of the media who never has to look in the mirror.
    Coincidentally on Monday evening I sat with my wife, a political neophyte, and went back and forth between FOX and CNN to illustrate the positive and the negative. Unless one is purposely blind it smacks you in the face. One has only to consider those living on the plantation these past 60 years to know negativity sells especially when it is backed up with cradle to grave entitlements.

    ….so then is the truth antithetical to what the left preaches to the masses? I would say so.

    As you well know, negativity is the main plank of the Democratic/Communist platform. It isn’t easy to maintain that plank, however. What one has to do is to set in motion a continuing set of crises that lend themselves to one’s own political strengths. As Candace Owen pointed out the other day, which you posted, NY has a medical crisis because NY governor Cuomo closed down sixteen hospitals inside the city of NY. Whether Cuomo is running for president has yet to be announced, but I will say that he’s certainly acting like it.

    The other day, I was flipping through channels and came to a news show featuring the UN Secretary General, a fellow from Portugal by the name of Antonio Gutierrez. What he said was that if left untreated, the coronavirus could end up killing millions of people. So, the headline was UN SECRETARY GENERAL PREDICTS MILLIONS WILL DIE WORLDWIDE. What was missing was “if left untreated.” Personally, I think Gutierrez could have signaled the seriousness of his concern without claiming “millions” could die, even if it were true, because it seems to me that most of the world’s governments are responding responsibly to the crisis and there is no good reason to scare the crap out of people —or blow the entire “serious” issue out of proportion. Where was Mr. Gutierrez and Mr. Cuomo when FIFTEEN MILLION people were infected with the seasonal flu virus, of which 683,000 died? By the way, 683,000 deaths due to seasonal flu is the annual average.

    The other thing that bothers me is these new reports we keep getting about the number of dead from coronavirus. Because I have no ability to trust anything the government tells me, I did some independent research. Let’s use NYC for an example. We are being told that so far, since January, 1,000 people have died as a result of the coronavirus. That’s 1,000 people over the past 91 days. In that same period of time, 38,220 people have died in NYC from other causes. In other words, .026% of NYC deaths since January 2020 involved the coronavirus. It does appear to lend some perspective as to the nature of the crisis, doesn’t it? Here’s something else: the likelihood that anyone between the ages of 10 and 50 will perish from the coronavirus is .02%. The greatest risk group are those above the age of 60 with risk of death approximating from 3.6% to 15% (80 years of age or older).

    Therefore, what is the problem, do you think? It’s an election year and there is nothing else available for Democrats to use against Trump —even though it appears to me that DJT has been on top of this since January 2020. We are not hearing about THAT in the media, however. Of course, not … this is how politics is done in the Democratic Party.

    While wishing no harm to anyone at the same time I find it quite annoying how those on FOX are falling all over themselves to patronize Chris Cuomo telling its audience what a great guy he is now that he has tested positive for Corona. He’s nothing more than a garden variety left wing media hack with a microphone who asks for nothing more than to dance on DJT’s political grave.

    AND YES, MUSTANG…I’ve seen them lop off the end of MANY sentences so it works better for the leftwing ideology. I remember distinctly watching Trump LIVE talk about getting out of the Paris climate Accord….”We’re getting out because we can’t pay for the rest of the world, let THEM chip in….”(end of press quotes)…WHAT HE ACTUALLY ENDED HIS THOUGHT WITH WAS : “….and, by the way, of course we want clean air and water and will always work toward that end, but not paying for the whole world as they spew pollution!” I’ll never forget hearing them rag on him for days knowing that I KNEW he’d NOT stopped at “..let them chip in…” (for which, of course, he still gets criticized for NOT CARING ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT!)



    PETER…Funny that you’d just gone over the CNN/FOX thing with Mrs. Peter!!
    I had a notary come yesterday (I thought I’d written about it here but must have deleted it) and we talked about the virus…I mentioned how well Trump’s team is doing and her face became a thundercloud before my eyes….She actually thinks CNN has as many Republicans on every day as FOX has liberals…..I think I finally said “Well, if you think at last 10 regular contributors one of whom was the head of the DNC equals CNN’s 2 Republicans a WEEK” I guess you can say they’re the same!

    And as we have seen Cuomo’s hoarding ventilators along with his closing down 16 hospitals in New York has no place in the conversation any more than were he on the golf course today….or yesterday or tomorrow. With the media and the billionaire elites having his back he will be a formidable opponent should he end up running against Trump in November rather than Biden who in spite of being two steps from assisted living has a 9% lead over the president.


  9. skudrunner says:

    Now we have the racist former president in the mix with the government didn’t do their job. The democrats at that time were totally consumed with impeaching trump and the republicans were just as consumed with not having that happen. We elect politicians not because they are smart but because they can raise millions to buy a seat. After they get in they spend their time running for reelection and raising millions, they don’t have the time or brains to multitask.

    If this is all trumps fault as his worthless says why did the mayor or NYC say no big deal you celebrate chinese new year and why did madam botox hold an impeachment rally in san francisco after the virus was a known entity.

    The leftists have nominated a moron and have to do everything they can to regain power. They know their choice is bad so what is left and the media is all behind them.

    I am unable to respond directly to Mustang’s excellent fact-based comments on my cell but I totally agree.

    The Liberal FakeNews is exactly as it was after Dec. 7, 1941 – generating fear against Nazis and Japanese via PROPAGANDA. Exaggeration…but in that period, SUPPORTED Democrat FDR totally.

    However, from the initial stages of the breakout of the Chinese virus, I “felt” it was a leak from a bio lab near Wuhan making bioweapons. Then WHO came in and declared a pandemic…based on what UNDISPUTABLE FACTS? Based on tests for “coronavirus”? That is a broad family of viruses… It is like Ford. You have trucks, Fusions, Mustangs… and within Mustangs, you have GTs and four bangers.

    But the way this old senior understands this propaganda, COVID-19 is the strain that is the aggressive one… but COVID-19 is part of the coronavirus family. It does NOT appear that if you test positive for coronavirus, that you have COVID-19. Is that correct? That means what FakeNews is reporting is that these folks have SOME genes (exposure) from a coronavirus in them – BUT ALSO IMPLYING THEY ALL HAVE COVID-19, adding to fear mongering.

    Here is a report issued a couple of days ago. Take it for what it’s worth.

    Cuomo just said only 20% of those who even GO on ventilators get off them…80% are dying.

    You know, if a surgeon gets a patient off the operating table alive, the patient’s death a few moments later don’t affect the surgeon’s survival rates. Neither does the patient’s resulting lifelong disability.

    MAL, I was much more comfortable playing golf in long pants in the Phoenix area in 110 degrees than I usually am here in Cincy at anything above 80. Don’t care for humidity.

    115 in July there is another story.

    Z, I have to do the same with Mr. B’s car – just need the jump start first! Imagine – sailing all the way to downtown and back. And I will stop at the Staples at the Grand exit, since the local one closed.

    I don’t know how a friend of mine who moved from San Francisco could stand The Villages in Florida. Such a humid area. I’m with Kid on humidity. 105 in Ojai much better than 98 here at the coast. Winter temps too, better drier.

    That Faversham family video is fun! The tune sounds vaguely familiar like I’ve heard it before. If not, very clever.

    If you have any emergency gear in your trunk I Strongly recommend the following:

    1) Star Wrench –
    A wrench you can actually use to remove lug nuts.

    Even better an electric impact wrench – just an example here, not a researched rec – Read reviews.

    2) 12 Volt air compressor that uses your car’s power plug(s)

    3) JUMPER CABLES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GOOD HEAVY DUTY LONG ONES.

    4) I forget.

    Baysider..DEFINITELY on all that press….
    and the Faversham song is from Les Mz….just a wonderful re-lyricing! 🙂

    Kid, I KNOW, but I’m A GIRL 🙂 What do I know from this stuff? I am definitely going to my mechanic tomorrow or Friday to have the Volts checked. Whatever the heck that means 🙂


    I DESPISE HUMIDITY Sean Hannity mentioned THE VILLAGES just tonight! I am quite sure it never registered with me, but it must be BIG and FAMOUS!! 🙂


  59. kidme37 says:

    Z, I’d be happy to check your volts. But it’d be a long drive…

    Yea, the villages in Florida is a Big hot spot for retirees. Personally I don’t like hot spots. Always been how you say? Non-conformist.

    You’re a Girl. See that’s why I put the info down with links. Just do it. Honestly, it may come in handy at some point. This is inexpensive stuff and could be life saving. Seriously.

    Z, what your step-son was referring to is volts. Yes. Car batteries should read 14 volts, however I was referring to amperage (amps). To check for a weak battery they check the amps, which gives the strength of the current of electricity. They’ll know what to do.
