CNN: Water Carriers

CNN now clarifies this was a "joke." (That's just a link of the same picture; the joke clarification is by @politico's Media Defender Dylan Byers, and I don't link that shit.)

via @ehtanklapper and @katmckinley

Kat asks if I'll do a rant. Right now I'm struck dumb.

Ever hear someone say "I need to process this" when something really unbelievable happens?

I need to process this.

I know that I'm in the minority on this, and I'm really not trying to troll O/T (really), but the cops deliberately setting fire to teh house Dorner was using as a hideout just doesn't sit right with me.

Yeah, they needed to get the guy out, but there was no way he was going anywhere with teh place surrounded, and burning out criminals isn't exactly accepted SOP for any law enforcement (as opposed to military) force.

I don't care who the psycho is, the cops burning down the house after 3 hours of standoff just ain't kosher. Glad we were spared the expense and hoopla of a trial, but being glad about something doesn't mean it's good policy.

The first topic- I kid you not- was the Hillary Clinton Shooter: Hero or Super-Hero?

The panel, including Tofu or whatever his name is, more or less came down on the side of superhero but his methods while righteous were too extreme.....maybe.

The next topic- you guessed it- that career ending drink of water because it illustrated how amateurish and inexperienced and what a doo-doo head Rubio is.

My how we all laughed at his silly Mexican or whatever the hell he is ass. We laughed and laughed.

He took a drink of water!?!?

130 I know that I'm in the minority on this, and I'm really not trying to troll O/T (really), but the cops deliberately setting fire to teh house Dorner was using as a hideout just doesn't sit right with me. Yeah, they needed to get the guy out, but there was no way he was going anywhere with teh place surrounded, and burning out criminals isn't exactly accepted SOP for any law enforcement (as opposed to military) force. I don't care who the psycho is, the cops burning down the house after 3 hours of standoff just ain't kosher. Glad we were spared the expense and hoopla of a trial, but being glad about something doesn't mean it's good policy.

Glad to see that Russian environmentalists are just as scientifically retarded as their western counterparts:


However the collapse underlines concerns about the condition of the
now defunct nuclear plant over two-and-a-half-decades after the
explosion of reactor number four.






"Even if the radiation levels did not change, this is a worrying sign,"
Vladimir Churov of Greenpeace in neighbouring Russia told the Interfax
news agency.




"If there are sections in the turbine hall that are falling down there
is no guarantee that the sarcophagus built in 1986 will not be the next
to fall."



Yeah, nothing to guarantee it, except for the several meters of steel reinforced concrete.

How many links to the Rubio "dry mouth montage" have you been sent today? I got two, and I expect more. It's early here.

They both came from people--I know these finely educated dipshits--who don't know who Rubio is. Understand?

What they know is that "LOL [today's hated Republican]!" is the right way to suck up to People Like Me.

(Not me, but they don't know that, because if they did, "LOL oblig.!" would be their way of sucking up to People Like They Thought I Was.)

Today it's "Rubio." And this is all "Rubio" means to them--and all it ever will.

"Marco Rubio is a smart, likeable Republican with a lot to offer America. He is also Latino, and the Democrats do not want anyone in America to accept a Republican minority of any type. They will tear him down just as they tear down all conservative blacks, Hispanics, women, gays and other minorities. The Democrats believe they are entitled to those populations, and are severely threatened when anyone from these groups dares to think for themselves. Just watch. It's happening now and it will happen over and over again."

Yes. The left is entirely predictable. It is a 100% certainty that the left will do everything possible to tear down Rubio (and Ben Carson, and on and on). But if they are called on it, people will notice what the left is doing. They won't be able to easily get away with it.

Ditto for handling Obama. In 2009, we weren't quite sure how he would behave. There is no mystery anymore. But the GOP just sits there dumbfounded.

Until the GOP develops any sort of media strategy, I give up hope for them. And I don't even care any more. It's not hard to determine how to combat the left.

I read that, too. Cowboy was in hyperventilation status, if memory serves.

Ends and means, comrade. One does not justify the other.

I don't mind Dorner being a BBQ briquette. I do mind that it is somehow acceptable law enforcement policy to burn people out of hiding. We're not Vikings or Muslims.

Like I said, I'm not trolling about it. It's just seems like a bad idea to accept this as some sort of appropriate law enforcement tactic.

"Burners"? Really? They knew that these would start a fire??

As opposed to what? Giving him opportunities to escape and or murder more innocent people? How effiecnt is that? Her made it clear that he would not be taken alive and wanted to kill more people. He was given opportunities to surrender. Stop making excuses for the asshole.

276 Two possibilities:
1) They were trying to look hip and "with it" by referring to the latest giggle-fest among their side of the social media scene.
2) They were trying to feel superior to the social media, which they feel threatened by, by pointing out something vacuous on Twitter.

Neither of those possibilities is flattering to CNN.

282 The onslaught of Democrat talking points echoed perfectly from MSM, New Media and Social Networking is making low-info perception a reality.

How to defeat the propaganda arm of the neo-fascist Democrat party's appeal to ignorance is key to stopping their agenda.

The atmosphere the low-info public breathes is entirely created by propagandists. It IS the culture now. The marketplace of ideas isn't a free market as long as one side has a near-monopoly on distribution of mores, morals, culture and 'fact'.

Also the high-information Dems have no problem with their pols play acting 'center-right' to hook the rubes. We hunt RINOs, they know after all the school-uniform and 'sensible' reform bullshit that the Democrat pol is going to act ideologically pure.

We hear a slight equivocation or attempt to sell liberty and small government in a new way and pounce on the heretic. I'm pretty hard core libertarian and Scott Brown said some pretty awful things, but he's trying to sell small govt conservatism to a state of neo-fascists. You gotta let some stuff slide when our guys are marketing to the masses.

There are RINOs of action (who need to be shut down) and RINOs of rhetoric, who might just be appealing conservatism to LIVs

We need better discernment, I think sometimes in an effort for purity we blow-up a solid con's spot, just as they make inroads.

WE have to stop being outraged and surprised at the nonsense the left spews and pay attention to the low-info narrative they are setting. When seemingly rational and educated people say ridiculous things over and over AND influence people you have to acknowledge it as strategy. The high-information Dems have a strategy, to set the tone and narrative and they know perception is reality. By any means necessary.

We need to be guerrillas in the culture war and stop being Red Coats, marching in formation, easy to pick off, complaining that the enemy isn't fighting fair.
