The left is all hot and bothered over Atty Gen. Sessions whining about some judge on an island in the Pacific.
While the right is exercised over some twit art professor painting Trump’s severed head.
Of the two, I’d think the head would get the most ink/air, if not a Secret Service investigation. It it was Barry’s or the Hildafelon’s head we’d all know about it and never hear the end of it. But that’s not the way it works with the Mediacrats.
No, no. The little island in the Pacific takes the palm.
“Franklin Delano Roosevelt, revised the media rules in equally profound ways. Like Trump, he feuded with the mainstream media; like Trump, he used a new medium [radio] as a direct pipeline to the people. He also used the government’s machinery to suppress unfavorable coverage, a fate we hope to avoid in the age of Trump.”
“And then there was that time in 1942, when FDR gave a New York Daily News journalist whose reporting he disagreed with a Nazi Iron Cross medal.”
It’s okay when they do it. Especially the principal hero of the modern liberal Dim party.

Now that the dust has settled from the Syria strike and the usual suspects have had their say—among them Rand Paul that Trump’s order was as unconstitutional as LBJ’s dragging us into Vietnam and war-monger John McCain just as pleased as punch—I have to say I was surprised and saddened.
First off I’ve never understood why chemical weapons are supposed to be more heinous than high explosive or automatic rifles and machine guns. But given that they are seen that way, Trump’s comment about children dying horribly from poisonous gas couldn’t have been more disingenuous.
Does he not know that there were families at that air base he bombed? Families of the techs who labored there and undoubtedly some with children? Why is blowing them up less horrible that what Assad allegedly did? And how does this further American First? As Paul said Syria didn’t attack us.
Regrettably, Trump seems to be headed down the path that Bush 2 and Obama took, in stirring up the hornets nest of the Middle East, and getting more American soldiers killed—for the sake of what? Realpolitik? What a shame.
UPDATE: The ZMan opines: “The United States has no interest in Syria. There are no good guys to back. There’s no ‘solution’ to what ails that part of the world, short of another flood. Syria is a mess because it is full of Syrians. The only sane policy is to make sure it remains full of Syrians. Let them kill each other there, not in Paris or Portland.” And hopes the Tumpet doesn’t get to like being President of the World. God help us.
This is old. But funny. And I missed it. So I’m making up for it now.

“Once you wave away all the smoke created by our dishonest media, the story of this past week was pretty simple. The Trump-Russia-Conspiracy narrative is falling apart. The Obama-Spied-on-his-Political-Opposition narrative is coming together.”
UPDATE: It’s Watergate on steroids says Don Suber, author of Trump the Press.
Heat Street, McClatchy, The Guardian, BBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, The New York Times, The Washington Post, the Associated Press—they all have known for months that Obama spied on Trump. They even reported it, in detail.
But when Trump called Obama out on it, they all lied to cover it up.

“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.
