From the Mainstream to the Mediacrats

“The media and Democrats are so close in association and so close in their philosophical views that we might as well use one word to describe both, and that’s ‘Mediacrats,'” said Texas Rep. Lamar Smith, founder of the House Media Fairness Caucus.

Works for me.

Ban auto-play video, please

Web creator Tim Berners-Lee on taking back control of the Web:

“We must work together with web companies to strike a balance that puts a fair level of data control back in the hands of people, including the development of new technology such as personal ‘data pods’ if needed and exploring alternative revenue models such as subscriptions and micropayments.”

That’s just for a start. But nowhere on his list do I see banning auto-play video, which I would think would be a necessary first step to getting back our control of data.

Trump’s “fuck you” money

“I still think it’s stunning how survivable Trump is going to be amidst the flack and drubbing he gets. Trump is military academy man. Construction boss man. Scrap with the NY Press man. Reality TV man. Divorce man. Billionaire man.

“I still think he’s the walking personification of fuck you money, that thing that so many Americans wish they had.”

Real news for a change

And from the NYTimes, too. It’s Fast & Furious again, but without guns.

The investigation and the looming racketeering trial will bring renewed scrutiny to the A.T.F., which has been buffeted in recent years by the botched gun-tracking operation known as Fast and Furious and its mismanagement of undercover investigations. Representative Jason Chaffetz, whose House oversight committee investigated Fast and Furious, asked the A.T.F. on Wednesday for reams of documents related to the secret tobacco account.”

President Trump, please abolish the ATF. They’re helping no one but themselves and their political cronies.

Arlington Pre-school teacher fired

Nancy Salem, a hijab-wearing Muslim teacher of South Arlington 2-year-olds was first suspended and then fired after a Texas-based group Canary Mission outed her for using social media to spread Jew hatred.

“On her now-deleted Twitter account, Salem made numerous derogatory comments about the Jewish people, including replying to a question “How many Jews died in the Holocaust?” with “Not enough…HAHAHAHA.”

Gotcha bitch! Hahahaha

Trump was inevitable when the elite went absurd

Wretchardthe cat on why the elites are losing control of the country:

They “lost their mojo by becoming absurd. It happened on the road between cultural appropriation and transgender bathrooms.”

Meanwhile the NFL and NBA, neither of which will put up with gay players, despite what they pretend, is threatening to commit financial suicide over states like Texas and North Carolina refusing to legalize transgender bathrooms.

The end of Trumpalot or the beginning?

Having thrown Gen. Flynn under the bus and now being battered by the usual leftist lizards to get rid of the woman who arguably helped him get elected, Trump’s choices are narrowing.  PJMedia’s Michael Walsh thinks they boil down to these:

First, complete his cabinet.

Second, fire every fireable federal employee in the leak-prone agencies, including the Central Intelligence Agency.

Third, start taking operational security seriously.

Fourth, assume everything you say will leak to the media and be spun as malevolently as possible.

Fifth, trust nobody.

Will he? Can he? If not, we can probably expect his impeachment shortly after the Dims take back the House in 2018.
