Understanding The New York Times

The New York Times swooned over Obama demeaning and degrading the presidency.

But they are hysterical about Trump cleaning up the mess which has been made over the last 30 years.

    “Oh, no! Trump snubbed the communists who slaughtered 60 million of their own people in favor of one of our openly stated allies WITH WHOM WE HAVE A DEFENSE TREATY! Whatever shall we do!”

    This is how mentally ill liberals actually are. This is how they actually behave. Hopefully this is a sign that Trump will undo Nixon’s garbage.

    Make Communist China Unrecognized Again!

  2. TeaPartyGeezer says:

    Off topic …

    Found this joke on Twitter and thought of you. Sorry, don’t know how to copy the actual picture into comments.

  3. TeaPartyGeezer says:

    I have a feeling that President Trump will be the first to do a whole lot of things for the first time. And every one of them will cause the NYT consternation and apoplexy.

    I can’t wait.

    • RAH says:

      Trump even breathing causes discomfort at the NYT. His speaking caused them to have acid stomach. When he makes cabinet picks it causes them to get really ill. And he’s not even the POTUS yet! I’m sure there are many Grand Mall Seizures in the future for the NYT, complete with foaming at the mouth.

  4. Richard Keen says:

    Is this the same NYT that wrote apologies for Stalin’s gulags and mass murders? Now THAT’s diplomacy!

    • Gail Combs says:

      Yes, the NYT of Walter Duranty, apologizing and covering for the Communists ever since.

      • EW3 says:

        And Duranty got a Pulitzer for his coverage. Even after being exposed as a lie, the NYTs still hangs his Pulitzer proudly.

        BTW – Snow in MA tonight/tomorrow Gail.

  5. The NYT is morally bankrupt. Let us hope that financial bankruptcy is not far behind.

  6. copernicus34 says:

    I know another President who upset the diplomatic apple cart a bit in his day. #AshHeapofHistory

  7. Psalmon says:

    Taiwan was one thing, but when Trump called Monaco and asked if they had Prince Albert in a can, that was the last straw!

  8. Bob Grise says:

    Tony, I was listening to Mark Levin the other night and he said Trump’s daughter Ivanka is a big believer in Man Made global warming propaganda. I trust you will be meeting with the dear girl soon to show her the truth before she talks her Dad, our Prez elect, to do something stupid. I’m happy with the Donald so far, but he seems to think his Democrat daughter is a genius. Your the right guy to nip it in the bud!! Just in case!!

  9. Lasse says:

    Give him the Nobel peace prize !

  10. gator69 says:

    Trump was simply being diplomatic, and wanted to give our friends acorss the water time to adapt to the new paradigm.

  11. TA says:

    This constant attack on Trump is pretty much standard procedure for the Left. They always attack Republicans at every opportunity, especially when Repubicans hold power. Look at the constant smear campaign they waged for eight years against George W. Bush. And they did the same for all previous Republican presidents.

    Their attacks on Trump may be a little more vigorous than in the past because today there are many more Leftwing Media outlets than in the past, and because Trump is making them look really bad, so they are fighting back even harder.

    The good news is Trump will not be deterred by these attacks, unlike most Republicans. Most Republicans would be crawling off into the bushes to hide, if they had been attacked the way Trump has been attacked. But instead, Trump has the Leftwing Media looking for places to hide. And I love it.

    Expect a constant drumbeat of negativity from the Leftwing Media for a time. I do expect that eventually Trump will beat them into submission. Man, this is fun! Go Trump, Go! I’m loving every minute of it.

    Just don’t get discouraged when you hear the negative Media. Keep in mind that they represent only a small percentage of Amerian thinking. They DON’T speak for everyone, although they want you to think they do. They only speak for themselves. The rest of us are moving on.

    • RAH says:

      There will be no slack. Everything Trump does will be criticized and we know it. The media could not turn the election and they will not turn us against Trump. Only Trump by his actions or lack there of can do that.

  12. RAH says:

    Really we are watching a precipitous decline in the influence of the old media be it the NYT and other papers or the TV “news” like the “major” networks and cable “News” networks.

    Trump going straight to the people and using alternate media is just killing them. They have lost their ability to be “the gate keepers” and thus lost their ability to define what the “news” is and what will and will not be reported or emphasized.

    Personally I would pull the WH press credentials from CNN for their collusion during the election. I would also rotate on a systematic basis the seats where the different media outlets sit in the WH press room. There is no good reason for the old media to always have their “traditional” seats in the front two or three rows.

    I would also make the press responsible for cleaning that damned pig sty up! The WH press briefing forum is and has been a total mess. There is no reason why the people should have to pay for the clean up of that forum and there is no reason why the press should not be made responsible for keeping that space clean. Make the press pay for it as a cost for being allowed in. I would not supply any of the press with anything on the tax payers dime. Not even coffee.

    This may all seem like small potatoes but it is powerful symbolism that would be popular with the public. It is the way it should be.

    • Gail Combs says:

      Actually I would use twitter, then GreatAgain.gov for official announcements followed by ‘fireside chats’ broadcast on Rightside Broadcasting, OANN, Breitbart and Alex Jones with an occasional interview with Lou Dobbs, Tucker, Judge Jeannine and Hannity and who ever else treated Trump fairly.

      At official press conferences handout paper notices hand written in cursive. And have a press sec answer questions. With ZERO access to the president.

      Vindictive? Who me? The MSM deserves NO Courtesy for all their lying.

      • AndyG55 says:

        OT. Gail, do you have a list of links of rabid alarmists saying things that show the climate change scam is far-left anti-human, socialist one-world, anti capitalist, agenda?


        • Gail Combs says:

          What I have is this:
          46 statements by IPCC experts against the IPCC
          Posted by grumpydenier ⋅ October 8, 2013 link

          And a LONG list by Jimbo.

          “We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.”
          – Timothy Wirth, President of the UN Foundation.

          “No matter if the science of global warming is all phony… climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.”
          – Christine Stewart, former Canadian Minister of the Environment.

          “The data doesn’t matter. We’re not basing our recommendations on the data. We’re basing them on the climate models.”
          – Prof. Chris Folland, Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research.

          “The models are convenient fictions that provide something very useful.”
          – Dr. David Frame, climate modeler, Oxford University.

          “I believe it is appropriate to have an ‘over-representation’ of the facts on how dangerous it is, as a predicate for opening up the audience.”
          – Al Gore, climate Change activist.

          “It doesn’t matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true.”
          – Paul Watson, co-founder of Greenpeace.

          “The only way to get our society to truly change is to frighten people with the possibility of a catastrophe.”
          – Daniel Botkin, emeritus professor.

          There is most certainly a pattern to climate change…
          …but it’s not what you may think:

          For at least 114 years, climate “scientists” have been claiming that the climate was going to kill us…but they have kept switching whether it was a coming ice age, or global warming.

          1981 – Global Warming – “of an almost unprecedented magnitude” – New York Times

          1988 – I would like to draw three main conclusions. Number one, the earth is warmer in 1988 than at any time in the history of instrumental measurements. Number two, the global warming is now large enough that we can ascribe with a high degree of confidence a cause and effect relationship to the greenhouse effect. And number three, our computer climate simulations indicate that thegreenhouse effect is already large enough to begin to effect the probability of extreme events such as summer heat waves. – Jim Hansen, June 1988 testimony before Congress, see His later quote and His superior’s objection for context

          1989 -“On the one hand, as scientists we are ethically bound to the scientific method, in effect promising to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but – which means that we must include all doubts, the caveats, the ifs, ands and buts. On the other hand, we are not just scientists but human beings as well. And like most people we’d like to see the world a better place, which in this context translates into our working to reduce the risk of potentially disastrous climate change. To do that we need to get some broad based support, to capture the public’s imagination. That, of course, means getting loads of media coverage. So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we might have. This “double ethical bind” we frequently find ourselves in cannot be solved by any formula. Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest. I hope that means being both.” – Stephen Schneider, lead author of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, Discover magazine, October 1989

          1990 – “We’ve got to ride the global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing – in terms of economic policy and environmental policy” – Senator Timothy Wirth

          1998 – No matter if the science [of global warming] is all phony . . . climate change [provides] the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.” —Christine Stewart, Canadian Minister of the Environment, Calgary Herald, 1998

          2001 – “Scientists no longer doubt that global warming is happening, and almost nobody questions the fact that humans are at least partly responsible.” – Time Magazine, Monday, Apr. 09, 2001

          2003 – Emphasis on extreme scenarios may have been appropriate at one time, when the public and decision-makers were relatively unaware of the global warming issue, and energy sources such as “synfuels,” shale oil and tar sands were receiving strong consideration” – Jim Hansen, NASA Global Warming activist, Can we defuse The Global Warming Time Bomb?, 2003

          2006 – “I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous it is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are, and how hopeful it is that we are going to solve this crisis.” — Al Gore, Grist magazine, May 2006

          • AndyG55 says:

            Thanks, A good list for sure. :-)

            But what I’m looking for is Club or Rome, Namoi Klein, Orekses quotes on collapsing capitalism etc

            ie comments that specifically link to the one world government agenda (lie the 1998 one from Christine Stewart)

  13. RAH says:

    The NYT had a conniption fit over Trump talking to the President of Taiwan:


    And the PRC has filed a complaint over that phone call.

    It is quit revealing just how limp wristed our foreign policy has become when it is a big deal that a president elect of the United States talks to the leader of another nation and it pisses off the PRC so the press starts wetting their pants. The press constantly says the POTUS is the most powerful man in the world and yet he shouldn’t talk to the President of Taiwan because it will piss off the PRC? This is what good foreign policy looks like:

    • Rud Istvan says:

      No better way to quietly serve notice on China that the game has fundamentally changed than one simple phone call. South China sea, currency manipulation, asymmetric foreign investment policies, dumping, North Korea, … all coming as part of that change. They protest; Trump ignores the protest. Mission accomplished. Obama never learned what TR knew: actions speak louder than words.

  14. CheshireRed says:

    Absolutely spot-on with this one. Whose business is it who the president of the United States (be it Trump, Obama or anyone else) speaks to? Nobody else’s business and Trump is being well advised to re-open old contacts. And poor lickle put-upon China can stick their ‘diplomatic offence’ where the sun doesn’t rise as well.

  15. Rud Istvan says:

    I suspect Trump understands diplomacy just fine. The Teddy Roosevelt kind: speak softly but carry a big stick. Obama got both parts backwards, as the Syrian chemical weapns fiasco showed. And Kerry didn’t know was a stick is.

  16. RAH says:

    And as one would expect the lily livered leftist press is doing their usual hatchet job as if they know better than anyone else what a President should and should not do.

    “Donald Trump keeps confirming fears about his diplomatic skills”

    • Gail Combs says:


      They guy is a multi-billionaire who closed deals all over the world. Of Course he knows how to negotiate and deal with people from other countries. He also knows their LAWS.

  17. Ross says:

    The facts are that the Taiwanese called Donald Trump to congratulate him ( NOT the other way around).
    What do these precious diplomats expect him to do ? No take the call and display the bad manners the Diplomats seemed to be suggesting as a course of action.If a few of them don’t keep out of the media they might find themselves needing to update their CVs.

    • RAH says:

      Though she called him the call was prearranged. Trump was not forced into this. He agreed to it before hand and I totally agree with it.

  18. Charles Higley says:

    I love it. A person who goes around treating everybody as what they are and not as what the former bozo considered them from his idiotic point of view. A true business man knows how to deal with everybody and still be able to come to a deal which is positive to both sides. One could say that the Donald is more like a true/honest politician than we have seen since Reagan.

    • Neal S says:

      We have had politicians running things for way too long. Trump either is a statesman, or is becoming a statesman. That is just what the US needs as its CEO.

  19. rh says:

    With one little phone call PE Trump sends a signal to the PRP that he is not intimidated by them. Genius.

  20. Gail Combs says:

    Mad Dog Mattis on Leadership: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EYU3VTI3IU

    No wonder the Progressives hate him. He is another great leader.

    GForce says:
    December 3, 2016 at 9:44 pm

    Just finished listening to one awesome speech given by Mad Dog to the 1st Marine Division before departure!!! I don’t think you will find it on YouTube. No sir. It has been safely stored in my husband’s heart since 2003. He proudly gave his 20, led his men in both Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom. I’ll tell you what my Marine can tell a story, there are so many times I wish I had a tape recorder in my pocket. This was one of them. I didn’t see it coming. He was turning wrenches in the garage and I brought him a cup of joe and summarized the headlines. That was it. He was literally transported back in time… Standing with the 1st Marines on the ready to serve our nation. That was the beginning of a 30 minute treat I will never forget. He wove in every inspiring word delivered by Mad Dog; the Marines going wild; his own personal feelings at the time about having clarity of mission, sense of purpose and the awesome responsibility he had for his men; table banging and crowd roaring included! What an amazing recounting of history. It’s getting late and he’s still out there, a happy man, whistling ” The Battle” hymn…

    ALRIGHT! (fist pump)

    Jill Stein Fails To Provide $1M Surety Bond For Pennsylvania Recount – Election Challenge Collapses…

    Con artist and former Green Party candidate Jill Stein raised fleeced the alt-left moonbats for more than seven million dollars. The financial ruse -as it was announced- was to fund an election recount effort in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.

    Now this:
    Pennsylvania – According to legal documents, Jill Stein and her campaign failed to post the $1 million bond needed to challenge the election in Pennsylvania. The court proceeding scheduled for Monday has been canceled….

  22. RAH says:

    This is completely OT but I came across this resource and thought I should post it before I forgot.

    This is from a non profit called: Professor Watchlist, a project of Turning Point USA.
    It maintains a list of sick professors that have publically professed radical views and teach them.
