Blogline of the Day – Radicalization is not just for religious zealots.

by Skip June 14, 2017

The Alexandria Shooter was “Radicalized” by Mainstream Media. Yes, conservatives believe in individual agency – James T. Hodgkinson is the only one responsible for shooting Republicans.  However, was his political outlook (and later, moral failure) fanned by the MSM?  Over and over again?  After all, how often has the MSM been the cheerleaders for strictly the […]

GOP, you are STUPIDER than I thought if you think this is a reason why I’d vote for you

by Skip June 7, 2017

Ben Sasse On What The Republican Party Stands For: “I Don’t Know” I hate almost all of the MSM, as any long term ‘Grok reader knows, as over the years I have blogged about specific instances of MSM bias against presenting news stories straight up without insipid (or gratuitous condescension) commentary slapping around half their […]

“Hey, hey, Ho, ho, Donald Trump has got to go!” – the Media

by Skip January 22, 2017

Well THAT didn’t take long, did it?  Trump’s honeymoon, if one could call it that, last all of, oh, six seconds with the mainstream media.  I’ve been watching this stuff since I turned 18 (and very intensely the last 10) and it’s like Groundhog Day.  It just seems that once a Republican enters the Oval […]

Dinosaur Media Peddles Fake News…

by Steve MacDonald January 17, 2017

The media and Democrats doth protest too much about fake news. They are, after all, the masters of the craft. (The Federalist) The “fake news” hysteria came, after all, from the same people who previously brought us “fake but accurate.” If you don’t remember that phrase, here’s a refresher. In the 2004 election, CBS’s Dan […]

See – they are Democrats with bylines – “a lot of us, our reaction was…right but a lot of them are deplorable, a lot of them are racist.”

by Skip December 26, 2016

The question is whether they realize that we already knew they agreed with Hillary?  Finally, an admission from Jake Tapper about the whole flock of ’em (emphasis mine): BASH: Number one —you and I talked about this in the break —for sure, Hillary Clinton’s deplorables comment. TAPPER: Basket of deplorables, yeah. BASH: Baskets of deplorables […]

Notable Quote – Bob Higgs

by Skip October 10, 2016

Q: What is the chief political function of the news media in the USA? A: To divert the public’s attention from what is important to what is trivial and thereby to ensure that fundamentals receive little or no discussion and hence play no role in political competition. -Bob Higgs, (H/T: Cafe Hayek) From personal experience, […]

2016 Presidential Primary – an observation on the media

by Skip December 4, 2015

From Pat Buchanan at Townhall (reformatted, emphasis mine): And the media have played right into Trump’s hand. They constantly denounce him as grossly insensitive for what he has said about women, Mexicans, Muslims, McCain and a reporter with a disability. Such crimes against decency, says the press, disqualify Trump as a candidate for president.  Yet, when […]

Really, Skip, you agreed with him?

by Skip October 30, 2015

I generally don’t use Twitter a lot expect for when there is a political event like the Prez debates – then it works well for quick pithy (or snarky) remarks.  I also try to pick out friends’ tweets that work well, raise an eyebrow, or have some data in there and either retweet or quote […]

Yeah, Romney’s really thinking “That damned internet thingy”

by Skip October 21, 2015

MITT ROMNEY: DEMISE OF LEGACY MEDIA EMPOWERING CONSERVATIVE ‘INSURGENTS,’ PREVENTING MORE ‘COLLABORATIVE ACTION’ Ugh…this post about Romney, divisiveness, Democrats, media, and Paul Ryan is wrong on so many levels….but that’s why I pay myself the big cents to wade through this slosh. Emphasis mine, reformatted: Failed GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney lamented that the demise […]

Practical Federalism–Closing remarks by Jeff Chidester

by Skip October 4, 2015

In concluding the entire day’s activities, Jeff Chidester gave his closing remarks to those still there at the end: In large part, this was due to a lot of people there to hear Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, and Rick Santorum – the Presidential candidates.  Yes, many did show up for the beginning (more or less) […]

Notable Quote – Howie Carr

by Skip September 11, 2015

The mainstream media goes crazy about Trump’s latest remark, tasteless as it was, and most of the voters immediately remember the absolute lack of outrage whenever a Democrat says something as bad, or worse. – Howie Carr (reporter, syndicated columnist, author, and Radio Hall of Fame talk show host).   Dunno if “most of the […]

603 Alliance Grassroot Summit – Media Panel

by Skip April 21, 2015

We get a little bit away from the speakerpalozza regime with a media panel to talk about the state of today’s media and the 5th Estate.  Sylvia Smith (conservative activist, 603 Alliance committee) and Jeff Chidester (also a conservative activist, radio talk show host, and newspaper columnist) joined me in, yes, raking the mainstream media […]

Why do Establishment Republicans have a “but” when it comes to Religious Freedom? Eh, Gov. Pataki?

by Skip April 5, 2015

Gov Pataki on WMUR’s Closeup (4/5): I agree completely with the idea that we have to protect peoples’ religious freedom.  There’s no question about that.  I quietly am, in my own way, deeply religious and I don’t want someone to tell me that I can’t practice my religion as I see fit.  But on the […]

Rip Van Media

by Skip June 29, 2014

Indeed.  Have no fear, though, that this Rip Van Media (the MSM, lamestream Media) will wake up just in time to do and carry out their Constitutional responsibility (to hound Government) when a Republican replaces the current King Communist Socialist Democrat now in the Oval Office.  DON’T DOUBT ME – I’ve watched it many times […]

Steve, NH Dems will NEVAH publicly run on gun control – even Chuck Todd says so!

by Skip September 12, 2013

Democrats and Ray Buckley (NH Dem Chair)  here in the Live Free or Die state know that if they really ran their campaigns on the issues that they later sponsor legislation on, they’d be dead ducks.  Did they run on gay civil unions, or gay marriage, or Deputy Dawg’s gun control?  Nope – not a […]

A Matter of INTENT

by Ed Naile August 12, 2013

I hear a lot of excuses about how we have to let THOUSANDS of non-residents vote in NH because there is no way to determine their “INTENT.” Once again, THOUSANDS of non-resident voters come here each election cycle, steal our votes and stay on the checklists for up to ten years. Don’t believe me? Check […]

GrokTALK! for 7/20/2013 – and everything must come to an end…Segment 4

Susan, Mike and Father Christian Tudor, and Jeff Chidester continue on with Skip’s questioning (a patient lot, them!): Donuts! With all the recent “Obamacare “setbacks”, why is he still succeeding with Obamacare?  How? Self-reliance vs dependency? What is the Democratic Plantation? Does the MSM “report” on society, or prides itself on “shaping” or “making it […]

The Inevitable You Are Only ‘Prosecuting Gosnell Because He’s Black’ Defense

by Steve MacDonald April 30, 2013

In closing arguments the defense for Kermit Gosnell has resorted to claiming that the only reason Gosnell is on trial at all is because he is black.  And I guess we are then meant to assume that if Kermit just happened to be a white guy who had killed women and slaughtered live babies, then […]

A Harley biker rode by the zoo in Washington, DC and saw a little girl leaning into the lion’s cage. Suddenly, the lion grabbed her by her jacket and tried to pull her inside as her parents screamed. The biker jumped off his Harley, ran to the cage and punched the lion on his sensitive […]

Reason 2,301,456 why the Media is in the Democrat tank for Obama

by Skip September 13, 2012

Like I said here, the Mainstream Media always picks side in the political battles and will pretty much sink to the occasion of “fair and balanced” when spinning what should be straight news.  The graphic is right: In LIBYA for gosh sakes, where they just fought a major civil war and things STILL haven’t calmed […]

Our National Mainstream Media at Work in 2011

by Tim Condon January 2, 2012

From Victor Davis Hanson at PJ Media, “The No News Stories of 2011“: “Barack Obama simply does not expect to follow normal political customs and traditions because he knows the media do not expect him to: he will not release the transcripts because he does not have to and it is his pleasure not to, […]
