I can't see any argument against the proposition that that is sheer journalistic corruption.

Jack is Back

Corruption? More like Pravda on the Potomac political propaganda.

It wouldn't surprise me that Schumer's press secretary stayed up all night writing it for Carney to edit and deliver straight to Podesta to hand it under the table at whatever diner the left uses these days.

Ignatz

I'm undoing an awful lot of good will with this but these are the maggots who wish to impose their will on us.

Can anyone here honestly say they would like that living on the same block let alone as a lever pulling commissar?

Eric in Boise

Thanks loads, Ig. I'll be trying to unsee that for a week.

Jack is Back

Iggy,

As they say, you should see the other guy:)

daddy

Iggy,

I can safely say that the only way that ugly chick would ever get a piece of my DNA would be via the cops.

MarkO

I wonder how much fear, as opposed to love, causes these sorts of things.

I know the media started out obsessed with a black President and Hope and Change. But, after the eavesdropping and Snowden and the Fox warrant suggesting prosecution for receiving information, might some now be fully chilled?

MarkO

Iggy, what's that guy's name?

Jack is Back

MarkO,

That's Juliet Eilperen. I hear she went to Mercer:)

Jane

I'm skipping ahead here but I just got back from the MA Republican convention. The person I sat next to was a talker (that's an understatement). During the course of the day she told me something I couldn't wait to get home to tell TK.

Michelle Obama is a man. The proof is that every woman's ring finger is shorter than their pointy (second) finger, and every man's is opposite. Michelle's ring finger is much much longer than her second finger. End of story. Oh and one time her husband referred to her a "Michael" (altho I would attribute that to the teleprompter).

MarkO

JiB, you were to have laughed out loud and rolled on the floor. Thanks for reminding me about Mighty, Mighty Mercer.

Hey, these Ancient Alien segments are thrilling.

Jack is Back

Jane,

You're lucky. I once had to sit next to Lynn Woolsley (google her) on a flight from DC to San Francisco. She started talking to me and wouldn't shut up. Since my company had many employees in her district (Marin and Sonoma counties) I had to politely listen to her "commie" talk for over 5 hours.

You got off lucky:)

daddy

Speaking as a non-Lawyer, if there isn't a reasonable Legal case that the Koch Brother's can make for the intentional harm done to them by the Washington Post intentionally and knowingly printing false stories about them, and intentionally designed to harm their image by "stir (ing) and inflame(ing) public debate in this election year then I have even less faith in our Legal Justice system than I thought.

Threadkiller

I don't subscribe to the Man in the Moo conspiracy.

Jack is Back

daddy,

I think for them its water off a duck's back kind of slander. Why make a big deal out of this when its so far down the totem poll right now.

I know its important to protect your family name and reputation but dragging this into court only brings up more dirt and their merchants.

BTW, the Koch Industries lawyers will have a nice rebuttal and demand for correction in the form of a well written letter to the editor. They always do and they are relentless and quite specific.

miss Marple

I am on my iPad right now so am REALLY thankful for the new thread!

Why can't Apple insert a button that takes you to the bottom of the page?

And on another note, my iPhone annoys me because of having to slide my finger across it to access a phone call. It is almost impossible to do when driving.

James D.

I know the media started out obsessed with a black President and Hope and Change. But, after the eavesdropping and Snowden and the Fox warrant suggesting prosecution for receiving information, might some now be fully chilled?

It's interesting to note: the media talked incessantly about how hostile Nixon, and later, George W. Bush and their administrations were to the press, and how there was a chilling of speech, etc. And yet, they went after both administrations relentlessly, and ultimately, without any real reprisal of the sort that the media always warned us was forthcoming.

Whereas with a constitutional law professor running "the most transparent administration in history," the media rolls over like a neutered housepet, and despite their subservience, we still see reprisals against various media outlets that Nixon at his most cynical wouldn't have dared to think about, let alone carry out.

Funny how that works.

daddy

Why make a big deal out of this when its so far down the totem poll right now.

JiB,

Because the knowingly false story is front and center on my newspaper and therefore I don't see it as far down the totem pole:

Koch brothers' big stake in oil sands raises Keystone pipeline questions
BY STEVEN MUFSON AND JULIET EILPERIN
The Washington PostMarch 21, 2014

It is intentionally doing damage to the Koch Brother's (and therefore their political causes) by falsely damning them in the Public Eye and aiding their political enemies in providing them those lies to smear them.

Just as an example---Almost every story up here related to energy or to Begich's opponents leads off with comments detrimental to the Koch Brothers.


sbw

MM: It is almost impossible to do when driving.

And illegal to do in New York when driving. We have to use the little button on the steering wheel that bluetooth answers.

Of course, we run off the road looking for the little steering wheel button.

I don't think that's enough. If we want to push back, at some point, someone with deep pockets on the right needs to go to court and bankrupt a major newspaper, or at a minimum, really wreck the careers of a few big name reporters somehow - make them so radioactive that they can't even get jobs as Wal-Mart greeters - to get the point across that these kind of smear jobs are not risk-free.


Ignatz

--That's Juliet Eilperen.--

You misspelled it JiB.
It's Eelperin.
That picture is cropped. Her tail is actually insinuated into the Potomac muck.

daddy

I'm with you James D.

Remember years back in 1992 when NBC news rigged explosives on the bottom of a GM Truck to "prove" that it's gas tanks would explode on collision? NBC Caught Lying About Chevrolet Trucks Exploding (Watch the whole 3 minutes worth).

My only problem with GM was that they didn't monetarily sue NBC out of existence, instead of settling for Jane Pauley saying NBC News was sorry and settling I imagine for a decent cash payment.

As a result, 4 years later NBC was able to unveil their new spinoff network, MSNBC, (1996) quite arguably the most corrupt TV Network in the country.

jimmyk on iPhone

"My only problem with GM was that they didn't monetarily sue NBC out of existence"

That kept them in the good graces of the DC elites, so that when they got in trouble they got a nice chunk of taxpayer money. Do you think if GM GS been owned by the evil Koch brothers it would have been bailed out?

jimmyk on iPhone

"Why can't Apple insert a button that takes you to the bottom of the page?"

A couple months back I posted instructions on how to make a bookmark that does that. There are also alternative browsers. I've gone both routes and am happy with the bookmark.

daddy

Do you think if GM GS been owned by the evil Koch brothers it would have been bailed out?

No, JimmyK,

but I think if the Koch Brother's had sued NBC out of existence they'd have given a wake up call to the rest of this country's Media about engaging in such practices, and thus have done a world of good to our Media Industry and the Public in general.

On the flip side of the question, if FOX News had conspired to create such a knowingly false report as NBC did with the exploding Fuel Tanks, do any of us think that the suing company wouldn't have tried to bankrupt FOX out of existence and have their broadcasting license permanently pulled? I don't.

Heck, in essence they try to do it every time they bring back the Fairness Doctrine bogeyman.

rse

DEliberate media misrepresentation of inconvenient facts is simply the other leg of the overall coordinated global effort to alter prevailing beliefs, values, feelings, and attitudes in order to try to direct future action.

I have said this before, but I will reiterate that UNESCO now calls both legs media education to connect them as two components of the same strategy it regards as necessary to enact Scientific Huamnism.

clarice

Juliet Eilperin's been doing his kind of crap on environmental reporting for ages..This time she really went over the ledge by attacking the Kochs on false evidence. I want to see the Post grovel..they aren't there yet.

Jack is Back

Well all you dissenters to my opinion jsut watch and see how Koch handles this. I will bet a steak dinner at the Palm in DC that it goes the way I said previously.

Yes it egregious but for them its SOP and they always let the corporate guys handle. David Koch is a neighbor in Southampton. See him all the time whe I am back. He is a huge philantrophist and a great unassuming guy who knows he has the bucks to counter anythng whenever he wants but also not to get into a mud wrestling fight.

Hope I am not wrong.

Beasts of England

Ms. Eilperin is one ugly dude. Are there any attractive leftist women? And are they leftists because they're unattractive, or are they unattractive because they're leftists?

Ignatz

--UNESCO now calls both legs media education to connect them as two components of the same strategy it regards as necessary to enact Scientific Huamnism--

With the same results as the USSR's efforts in the same genre.

Ignatz

They're unattractive because their souls are dead.

Ignatz

Well....and some of them look like pug dogs.

daddy

Are there any attractive leftist women?

Yes, Kirsten Powers for instance.

But in her case, since we now know that she dated Anthony Weiner, I am incapable of viewing her in a desirable manner. It's like that Seinfeld episode where Jerry can't handle that the cute girl he's going out with had been dumped by Newman:

Account Deleted

"With the same results as the USSR's efforts in the same genre."

Maybe a bit worse. Lysenkoism didn't collapse as badly as the SkyDragon scam. The WaPo watermelon would have been taken to the basement of the Lubyanka for generating such crap propaganda under the Soviets. Dialing the amps to 11 with more cowbell just isn't going to cut it with the segment of the population which has already turned away from the Fascists due to the 404Care lies.

Putin has certainly picked the right moment to unmask the weakness of the complete progressive charade in the US and EUtopia, with China and India quietly applauding in the background. I can't guess what the next round of Thugs v Punks is going to look like but I have my fingers crossed for Soros receiving a nice warm cup of polonium soup for his efforts in Egypt and the Ukraine.

daddy

polonium soup

Best new name for a Rock Band so far today.

henry

Better looking than a leftist woman? try this poll. O at 40, Walker +5, Amnesty -39. Dem +4 sample.

Beasts of England

Thanks, daddy. The exception that proves the rule? lol

Jim Rhoads f/k/a vnjagvet

JIB, I generally agree with you on the Koch Bros situation, but some part of me would like to see them own a newspaper.

Centralcal on iPad

Jane, we are way ahead of you right here at JOM. Somebody (Iggy, maybe) posted a video link Friday detailing the Mooch as a man theory. Sue and I also checked out finger lengths. Sue had split results, LOL,

If STL could have hit a few 3's they could have win that gave. I think the Ville are very vulnerable and Rick knows it.

Yeah, I'm thinking that having Little Ricky making a deep run may have been a mistake on my part.

Jane

HOw did I miss that? (Nevermind, I know how).

I'd never heard the finger thing before.

Ignatz

--detailing the Mooch as a man theory--

IIRC it was presented as irrefutable proof.
I'm sold.

Jack is Back

daddy,

Just watche Mumbai beat Bangladore in IPL 20/20 cricket. Ltss of cheerleaders and owners on hand:)

Ignatz

I consider a leftist someone more like this;

Kirsten is a John Bircher compared to real leftists like those babes, although Betty is getting me a little hot and bothered with that pinup pose up top there.

Jim Rhoads f/k/a vnjagvet

Were Betty Friedan and Helen Thomas related?

Captain Hate

Dear God, I'm glad I'm going out shortly.

Ignatz

Yes. They both had the same father.
Odd name. Some dude called Beelzebub.

Sorry, Capn. I almost committed the purest form of art assembling those images.

This EPA lady Gina McCarthy is quite the looker.

Hilarious trash talking between Grant Hill, Kenny Smith, Clark Kellogg and Sir Charles on CBS right now. Primo Holes vs. Dook ACC smack.

As penance for that 7:41 and others here is a three year old google lawyer arguing with his mom.
Why are brats so cute when they're someone else's?

Jack is Back

I remember Bella Abzug and often wondered about the collective IQ of her constiutence and then when I found out I knew. Not much.

anonamom

Jane, I hope somebody relinks Ig's video of PROOF MICHELLE OBAMA IS A MAN, as it is 28 minutes long, and I watched the entire thing.
Somebody else needs to too.

There's much more than just the finger length. There's shoulder width relative to head width, shoulder width relative to hip width, and ultimately, a few shots of the failed attempts at hiding the male genitalia, usually in knit dresses.

Inquiring minds will want to see it all!

Interesting. Playing in a pool tournament tonight. Bar has a live webcam. I could tell you the URL and you could watch me play.

But I won't.

Danube on iPad

About 30 years ago I spent a cross-country flight sitting next to Helen Thoms in the front cabin, where I downed all the free vodka I could hadle and perhaps a bit more. We hadn't reached Kansas before she was denouncing me for my lack of compassion.

Jane on Ipad

So if Mooch is Michael where did the kids come from? It may explain why they always look so unhappy.

jimmyk on iPhone

Barry may be Bonny. Have you seen the boobs? The girly bike? The flinching at the martial arts flip?

miss Marple

Anonamom, I am glad someone else remembers those horrible knit dresses and the bizarre configurations below her waist.

Nothing actually would surprise me. We have a guy with almost no documentation of his life in the White House whose best friends are Marxists, his mother-in-law practices a form of voo door, Valerie Jarrett is creeping around giving orders, his staff is full of dim bulbs who seem to know nothing but trash talking on Twitter, he's firing generals and suing nuns.

So hey, I would not be surprised if Michelle was a cross-dressing man. I am completely clothed in tin foil after 5 years of this.

Jack is Back

Geez? Can we find MH370 firsrt then start the next theory on arms and men( women included).

miss Marple

Well, Jack, I sincerely hope they find the plane or wreckage soon.

I was just replying to anonamom . And she was just mentioning the link someone else posted.

So don't blame us!

Frau Edith Steingehirn

MH370 will be found and explained long before we ever know any factual details of Pres. Stinky's life.

sbw

No, they don't.

Wow, that was a long trip. I think it was successful, those two images above, show the folly of the Top Men's latest exercise in appeasement,

Ignatz

Anonamom's wish is my command;
Irrefutable Proof Michelle Obama is a Man.
The views expressed in this video are not necessarily those of the poster or proprietor of this establishment but they sure are funny.

Ignatz

--About 30 years ago I spent a cross-country flight sitting next to Helen Thoms in the front cabin, where I downed all the free vodka I could hadle and perhaps a bit more. We hadn't reached Kansas before she was denouncing me for my lack of compassion.--

I'd give a princely sum for a youtube of that.

Danube on iPad

"There's much more than just the finger length. There's shoulder width relative to head width, shoulder width relative to hip width, and ultimately, a few shots of the failed attempts at hiding the male genitalia, usually in knit dresses."

What's more, Loretta Fuddy is reported to have spotted all of this evidence and connected the dots. Coincidence? I don't think so....

Jim Rhoads f/k/a vnjagvet

Except for the observations relating to "down there" in the knit dresses, the theories about finger length and head proportion to shoulder width seem to me reminiscent of the skull-shape race theories of the likes of Gobineau and Chamberlain which gave rise to many of the Nazi experiments to identify "true" Aryans.

Poppycock says I.

But as I have noted in the last thread, I do note that there is no photographic evidence thus far that Mooshell has bowed to any foreign personage, thus exhibiting far more testicular fortitude than her hapless "husband".

boatbuilder

TK-would you please explain to these newbies that the shiny side of the foil must face outward?

narciso

And in the LUN, the most demure of the Vargas collection, mileage may vary.

anonamom

Ig, you hadn't even watched it all when you posted it the other day---have you yet?

Honestly, I simply could not tear myself away from it.
The time and effort to make that! While wearing a tin foil hat, no doubt.

Wait'll TK sinks his teeth into that pork chop.

jimmyk

As Clarice mentioned, this Juliet Eilperin has been shilling for environmental nonsense for a long time. And guess what, her husband is some kind of climate change "expert" at the Center for American Progress. No conflict of interest, though.

So this is the guess the gender thread? OK. I'm guessing two women for the pics in the above link.

Ignatz

--Ig, you hadn't even watched it all when you posted it the other day---have you yet?--

You know I was sitting there thinking to myself "should I watch 24 minutes of Michelle's hairy pits and thick knuckles" and then I remembered I had something more fun to do and went down to the shop and stapled my thumb to my ear.

ChaCo commenting at the Wapo on that dude Eilperin's DNC contribution:

"So. Let's be clear about this. (1) You consider your unnamed sources more authoritative than the government of the Province of Alberta. (2) You don't actually care that the Koch brothers aren't involved. and (3) It's okay, because at least it stirred up controversy.

How, exactly, does this differ from the recent tabloid coverage of Flight 370 being found on the Moon, except that you actually thought you'd get away with it?"
