My latest to AP:

>>>"C-US--Trump Rally-Tulsa, 16th Ld-Writethru" <<<

If AP is going to call its story "Trump Rally”, it owes it to journalism to report what Trump said.

Not one quote. Not one bullet point. No substance.

AP reported protest theater and called it news.

You will recall that it was AP’s non-coverage of Trump’s content at the April, 2016, rally in Rome, NY, that prompted my book, “Take Back Your News."

Do you have an excuse?

Thank you.

RSBN says they had 2.8 million viewers:

https://twitter.com/RSBNetwork/status/1274537673265426447

That's just RSBN. If they had 2.8 million then the total is probably 3 times that.

A heavily-viewed 2016 rally might have approached a total of 100K views.

Let them crow about the allegedly low in-person attendance in Tulsa with rona worries and BLM storming the gates. I'll take the view count anyday.

Captain Hate

Happy first day of summer. The days start getting shorter now although I usually don't notice it until mid to late August

Barbara

Willowed...

Thank you for the information, Porch. I knew they'd be up to something like that. Those numbers for TV viewers are impressive though.

I don't know what your favorite part of the speech was, but I fell out laughing when the President took a drink of water and then threw the rest away. The speech just kept getting better and better as he went along. A tour de force.

Narciso

Seriously

That was a classic moment, also when he illustrated the walking exercise.

Donald Trump is talking for hours off the cuff to an auditorium of tens of thousands while Biden has this “rally” in his home state.

Momto2

Adweek is reporting that over 88 million Americans are watching President Trump's TulsaRally. That's close to Super Bowl XXVIII's 90m.

Captain Hate

Is Stolen Valor Blumenthal protecting the statues of the Nutmeg State?

The Infamous Ignatz

Let's never forget BLM has nothing to with race and they have nothing to do with protests. They are simply the black antifa.
They are violent Marxist insurrectionists intent on destroying America just like the antepasto crowd. Nothing more. Nothing less.

Porchlight

Barbara, the drink part was my favorite too! I'll post a clip when I find it. There's one already out there but it doesn't have the whole story.

Narciso at 11:23pm,

I loved the way he told the entire story of the West Point event like a sportscaster recounting an inning in a critical baseball game, pitch for pitch. He incorporated drama and humor as he made the media look ridiculous. President Trump shares a great trait with President Ronald Reagan: he's a marvelous raconteur.

That 88 million viewer number from AdWeek feels too large ...

Considering that plenty of prime Trump supporters like me and both siblings didn't watch. But I guess we'll see viewer estimates converge on a number in a day or two.

It's not like any of those turds have a functioning vocabulary beyond dogmatic recitations of provided slogans.

So 87,999,997 then.

I need to read my own links. RSBN is saying 4.2 million total, not 2.8 million.

Idk Jim, that does seem high. If RSBN's numbers are correct, they're only one outlet, so it could easily be 10 million or higher. I'll take it.

Always good to feel a LOT better, DrJ :) :)

And if it only takes a couple of glasses of wine to get there, well heck yeah!

Yeah, on the online viewing, I'll assume that the total was 8.8Million instead of 88Mil.

I should not be posting. I know it is late. My husband and I had a great night with our two girls. I yelled only a few (well they probs would disagree) times.
We celebrated Father’s Day early with the girls. I never imagined that they would bring up politics, but they did. In the end they don’t want to vote for Trump, but they don’t like the other option, and they feel they are robbed because no other options. Well, too bad we told them. And I think we actually made headway. They may not vote in the end, but it’s a small victory. If my son had been home we could never have had this discussion.

Narciso

FWIW, both of my wine glasses were filled in a Seghesio Zinfandel. They were quite good.

We just caught the last 10 minutes of "Born Free", and now I've got that tune stuck in my head.

DrJ

Let try to get that unstuck:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4P63s3Nw3iM

Arthur Rubinstein - Chopin Polonaise in A flat Major, Op 53 - "Heroic"

It was his signature piece, and is quite good. There are portions that I considered as unplayable by someone at my level. Rubinstein breezes through them.

Barbara

Wonderful, DrJ. I think that Rubinstein plays Chopin's music the way that Chopin himself would have played it.

Fits with what so many of us have noticed. My youngest did not like the factual answer I gave her when she saw a book I had ordered and asked me what was wrong with restorative justice.

Contrary reasonable assertions must not have been too common in those seminars.

Marlene

Good Morning! Our neighbor down the road texted in the wee hours that she had a bear on her back deck. The bear jumped on a chair,lost his balance and crashed into the patio table. Then he walked down the steps and left. About an hour ago, the dog was barking because the deer were down at the stream. I decided to come downstairs and make a cup of coffee. Life in the woods!

And of course we must also keep in mind a third date, one that is still a few months in the future. I mean November 3, 2020, the date of the U.S. presidential election.

How much of the theatrics we’ve been treated to—the riots, the groundless accusations of universal racism, the posturing by Democratic politicians—how much of all that is served up for the consumption of the nightly news in order to damage Donald Trump? We do not have instruments equipped to make that calculation, though the reality of the case is nevertheless clear enough.

What has not perhaps been appreciated sufficiently is the rancorous psychological dimension of the assiduously cultivated racialist follies roiling America and other Western democracies just now.

Yes, they are. They are also domestic terrorists and murderers and the full force of every Federal law that’s even vaguely applicable needs to be brought on their leadership, their financial backers, and a nice random sampling of the rabble in the streets and their online cheerleaders.

This is very good and written by an Italian journalist. https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/16118/western-history-culture-stand-up

The activists who campaign to remove the statues want radically to change the look of the British capital. The clash seems to consist of, on one side, violent censors who bully everyone, and on the other side, cowardly, appeasing politicians, who are afraid and bow to the vandals. Monuments are a vital and visible part of a global city; they embody their place in the history of a city, otherwise only bus stops and Burger Kings would remain there. These protestors appear to wish for a revised, sanitized history. If we do not quickly understand that, if we erase our past, as the former Soviet Union tried to do, it will be easier for people to create their vision of our future with no rudder to anchor us or our values. We will be left with nothing in our hands but shattered pieces of our history and culture.

This movement of hating the West -- which has, as all of us do, an imperfect history -- seems to have begun in British universities. In Cambridge, professors of literature asked to replace white authors with representatives from minorities to "decolonize" the curriculum. The student union of London's prestigious School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) asked to remove Plato, Kant, Descartes, Hegel and others from the curriculum, because they were "all white" -- as if the color of our skin should be the sole determinant of our thoughts. In Manchester, students painted over a mural based on Kipling's poem "If".

Registered Democrat Chris Wallace has lockdown enthusiast Dr. Tom Inglesby as his guest this morning on the FOX News Sunday With Registered Democrat Chris Wallace show. For a hint about what material might be covered, Inglesby yesterday tweeted that "The rally violates virtually every one of the guiding principles for gatherings issued by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, putting it in the "highest risk" category.”

FOX News, news source that previously distinguished itself by not leaning left.

I know of two people who know people who had it

My aunt in Winthrop, MA, and my uncle on Staten Island both had it, and both were in assisted living facilities. My uncle survived but my aunt didn't.

Jane

Yikes! ~oh what a night~

I couldn’t sleep after the rally so rather than watch it 2 times I changed the channel. I never watch real TV but no sports were on so I ended up watching The Parent Trap.

As a kid that was probably my favorite movie. This was a different version with 2 redhead twins and Dennis Quaid. I couldn’t turn it off, I couldn’t fall asleep, I was mesmerized. It was GREAT!

Ok I’m weird!

And Good Morning!

I have been exercising my white privilege installing the hardwood floor in the formal living space.

All should be happy to know that most of the time has been spent on my hands and knees in contemplation.

“Hmmm, sure would be nice if the original kitchen floor was installed parallel to the walls”

I don’t think I’m a bit more “woke”, but my carpenter’s skills are getting a serious workout:)

Yes my back is complaining.

Captain Hate

Fuck off, Inglesby. My life is just fine free of nags like you. Collect your taxpayer provided salary and STFU.

Well, if the English Premiere League is any indication, all our sports will be a Black Lives Matter full hell-a-ba-loo. All players wear jersey's with BLM in large script on the back. Then before start of the game all the starters take a knee for a minute.

So, for NFL, NBA, MLB, even NHL, I expect a full copy of the above.

James D.

We're probably not going to have to worry about it anytime soon, JiB.

Fear of the virus looks like it might close down all of big team sports anyway, at least through the end of the year.

Favre: "I can only think of right off the top of my head, Pat Tillman is another guy that did something similar," Favre said. "And, we regard him as a hero. So, I'd assume that hero status will be stamped with Kaepernick as well."

Statues.

We have come a long long way in just a few years.

Remember how dismissive and appalled we all were at the blind barbarity of the radical Muslims blowing up those ancient edifices all over the ME? And how we told ourselves..."see that could never happen in in USA."

History has reminded us over and over again how thin is the patina of civility & culture.

With a hat-tip to insight garnered on JOM, my latest editorial draft:

Headline: Thoughts on not taking part in the lie


Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn said, “The simple step of a courageous individual is not to take part in the lie.”

Take his advice. Across history, some cultures build. Other cultures destroy. The proper response to destroyer cultures is to stand strong in spite of them.


After three weeks of daily protests, vandals in Portland tore down a statue of George Washington. Just like the Tulsa rally protest provocations staged for the media, they want to undermine civil society.

Not this time. Turn your back on them. We owe reverence and respect to those who, however flawed, made this country possible. So many paid with their lives to create and preserve this country. That’s reason enough to stand for the national anthem.

The genius of the founding fathers was the humility to see all humans are flawed, and then create a framework in the Constitution to correct those flaws over time — if later generations will be humble enough not to destroy it before they appreciate its wisdom.


Using insight on rhetoric, Scott Adams explains, “Black lives matter, of course, and racism is everywhere there are people. But "systemic racism" as a complaint is a manipulative form of persuasion and I reject it. It creates a favored class of victim who are in poverty for a specific reason, which is obviously racist.”

Protesting “systemic racism” vandals have burned down neighborhoods and small businesses owned by minorities, moved to erase traces of minorities in business, masked themselves to remain anonymous, and elevated criminals and thugs.

They claim to stand for inclusion and diversity but attempt to re-segregate people. They attack those of different religions, stoke racial hatred, and engaged in race-based violence. They made race the measure of all things and despise the concept of color-blindness. Turn your back on them.


Radical protesters, writers, and media understand America. They just don’t like it. The 1619 Project or Howard Zinn’s People’s History, cherry pick a subset of past events and ignore what doesn’t fit their narrative.

They discard character, issues, insights, logic, and undermine common understandings of words to bludgeon others into submission. Destructively postmodern, like Droogs in Clockwork Orange, they trash the past, present, and future unconcerned their ignorance will turn back to bite them.

They demean and diminish the profound accomplishments and principles of Martin Luther King, who urged us to judge people not by the color of their skin, but by their character. Turn your back on them.


The media manufactured crisis of pandering mangles news. Writers virtue signal, warp statistics to misguide, and focus their media lens so closely on race they distort the rest of the world. For them, race has become the measure of all things.

Race-baiters orchestrate the shakedown of corporate America. Social media magnates selectively restrict content. Websites aligned with BLM push donations toward political action committees to fund the next set of political grifters to pander in office. Turn your back on them.


Despite the noise, citizens across the country stand strong. In Rome, diversity, quality, and character grew, strengthened by a cascade of Erie Canal travelers, military, and manufacturing employees. Locally, incidental racial tension tended not to be "systemic" but minority against minority, dealt by studying, working, and playing together.

As we overcome the pandemic, the political theater, and rebuild the dynamic American economy, don’t take part in the lie. Embrace community, help your neighbors, and celebrate the good we continue to do.

Both Lindsay Lohan, who was just as talented and adorable in the role as Hayley Mills; this was pre-narcotics, of course.

She really crashed and burned badly. Disney's track record on this type of thing isn't very admirable. Granted she and her parents are responsible but when you make lots of money with a wholesale image...

Why was Shirley Temple such an outlying point?

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

Web search mostly give no meaning to Gaius, just that it was a common first name. But one "baby names" site says it means happy or gay.

So ... "Happy Warrior"?
