A Massive Earthquake in the World of Journalism

Glenn Greenwald resigns from The Intercept, which he co-founded:

Today I sent my intention to resign from The Intercept, the news outlet I co-founded in 2013 with Jeremy Scahill and Laura Poitras, as well as from its parent company First Look Media.

The final, precipitating cause is that The Intercept’s editors, in violation of my contractual right of editorial freedom, censored an article I wrote this week, refusing to publish it unless I remove all sections critical of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, the candidate vehemently supported by all New-York-based Intercept editors involved in this effort at suppression.

The censored article, based on recently revealed emails and witness testimony, raised critical questions about Biden’s conduct. Not content to simply prevent publication of this article at the media outlet I co-founded, these Intercept editors also demanded that I refrain from exercising a separate contractual right to publish this article with any other publication.

Update: Tucker Carlson interview

A Trio of #FakeNews all on One Front Page!

Shown here is the front page of yesterday’s USA Today:

The 3 headlines in question are most interesting:

  1. Study predicts 500,000 US deaths [by Feb 28, 2021)
  2. Trump called protests violent.  We found majority are peaceful
  3. ‘Packing in Supreme Court’s future?

Quick analysis:

  1. One wonders if the folks at the University of Washington are using the same “model” as their disgraced English colleague, Neil Ferguson, who has a long history of scare-mongering and his predictions never being remotely accurate.
  2. There are lies, damn lies, and statistics.  USA today clearly is lying through the latter.  If one were to instead compare the number of violent protests in 2019 and compare them with the number this year, the increase would undoubtedly be gravely disturbing.  A visit to the Twitter pages of Andy Ngô and Ian Miles Cheong this past year reveal something that USA Today isn’t capable of providing: The Truth
  3. The article essentially uses the legal nomination and appointment of Amy Coney Barrett to SCOTUS as “justification” for the Far Left to pack the court however they please.  Doing so who instantly destroy the validity and reputation of the Supreme Court but, hey, when you’re trying to take apart the Fabric of America, who cares, right?

USA Today should consider renaming their non-news-paper to “The DNC’s Junior Varsity Propaganda Rag” for this would be a far more accurate description of what they have sadly become.

I Amuse Myself

Update — Glenn Greewald also notices.

Over the past several years, but particularly in the months heading into the 2020 election, it has become extremely common for prominent Democrats and their media allies to refer to President Trump as a dictator, a fascist, a tyrant hellbent on destroying U.S. democracy, a genocidal racist, and even a Nazi. And yet, the overwhelming reaction in those mainstream precincts to the news that the fascist dictator has contracted a potentially lethal virus is to hope and pray that he makes a speedy recovery whereby he can resume his democracy-destroying, genocidal, tyrannical, fascist rule. […]

How is this messaging — we hope the racist fascist genocidal Nazi-like dictator gets well soon and returns to work? — not creating extreme cognitive dissonance among those who believed that they actually were sincere in their maximalist denunciations and invocations of fascism and Nazism regarding Trump?

The Inability to Think Beyond Stage One

SDA regular ‘Larry’ posted something very interesting yesterday. His second link pointed to this:

Governor Noem appears to have a troll named Roseanna Renaud absolutely obsessed with her. Looking through her tweets, Ms. Renaud, is also obsessed with Covid deaths. In any case, she accused Noem of being a “super spreader” citing various facts including that 218 South Dakotans have died from Covid-19 to date. With the state’s estimated population of 858,469, that’s 0.025%. The breakdown by age is as follows:

  • 0 – 29: 2
  • 30 – 39: 7
  • 40 – 49: 10
  • 50 – 59: 22
  • 60 – 69: 32
  • 70 – 79: 38
  • 80+ : 107

One astute commenter challenged Renaud: “Are you seriously going to strip people of their rights, isolate an entire population, and cause irreparable damage to the economy over 218 deaths? All for what? Eventually we have to open up again, and when we do, there will be deaths. Doesn’t matter if it’s tomorrow or in 2022.”

She retorted: “Every single one of those 218 people mattered. You’ve shown your true colors.”  Such simplistic thinking.  This is the kind of comeback a 5 year old child has on a playground.

You can read the responses here.  This is a clear example of the divide between people who think purely through emotions and those who use logic and are able to view the bigger picture.  Will it ever be possible to get pure emotion-based people beyond the mental trap they’re in?

Disturbing news from Sudbury

SDA commenter ‘jdkirlan’ has brought to our attention the Demands of a BLM group in Sudbury, Ontario:

Black Lives Matter Sudbury has issued the list of demands it plans on putting before Greater Sudbury city council on Tuesday evening.

The demands, the group said in a news release, are aimed at producing “meaningful and long-lasting change.”

  • Demand One: Black Lives Matter Sudbury calls upon the Greater City of Sudbury and Council to provide funding for the implementation of appropriate culturally sensitive programming for Black, Indigenous, and Youth of Colour.
  • Demand Two: Black Lives Matter Sudbury calls upon the City of Greater Sudbury, Council, and all Arts and Culture organizations in the community for an appropriate level of inclusion of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour) representation in public spaces including, but not limited to, murals, galleries, festivals and performance venues.
  • Demand Three: Black Lives Matter Sudbury demands that the City of Greater Sudbury and Council to immediately defund and redirect 10 per cent of the $62-million Sudbury taxpayer dollars utilized for the Greater Sudbury Police Service (GSPS) budget.

“Demands” is the word that terrorists use. Is Black Lives Matter Sudbury a de facto terrorist organization? If the Sudbury City Council and residents of Sudbury Regional District don’t succumb to their demands, is there an implied or even direct threat of violence and destruction from the BLMS members and their comrades who will arrive from elsewhere?!

Here’s an alternative idea for this recently formed group of entitled thugs: Do the hard work of creating your own political party and convincing Canadian voters to support your ideas.  Then when you get elected on your platform of ideas, you’ll have an actual mandate to deploy them.  Or does this democratic approach clash with your Totalitarian Marxist ideology?

#BidenThugs are now Hunting Innocent People

Further to Kate’s earlier post, the BLM/Antifa thugs are now hunting down and beating up anyone who doesn’t comply with their violent tactics. Put yourself in the driver’s seat of a vehicle that happens upon a protest. People start attacking your vehicle and threaten to do the same to you and everyone else with you. Precisely what would you do in such a circumstance?

Of course, the thugs’ media allies are right there to spin a false narrative defending them.

The revolution has started, folks, at least if you live in America. Think it ain’t gonna spread to Canada?

With Apologies to The Boss

A musical manifesto in honour of the alleged Ricin mailer:

Born north in Trudeaupia
Indoctrinated to be a brainwashed dope, oh yeah
You end up listening to the Leftist media
Til you spend half your life hatin’ Americans

Born in Canada
I was born in Canada
I was born in Canada
Born in Canada

Got a little depressed from the Covid lockdown
Was 24/7 watchin’ news from my compound
Felt I needed to help my woke friends in a foreign land
To help them hurt the orange man

Born in Canada
I was born in Canada
I was born in Canada
Born in Canada

So I cooked me up a batch of some nasty poison
Affixed it to some letters addressed down south
Sent them away to see what they would do
Waited patiently to hear the news

When they failed to cause the desired horror
I got in my car and drove to the border
A woman’s work is clearly never done
But the bastards caught me with a damn gun!

Now they have me for a psych eval
But I’m workin’ on a letter to my Ottawa pal
In ten years, I’ll surely be out
With an apology and a big payout

Born in Canada
I was born in Canada now
Born in Canada
I’m a long gone oppressed Woman in Canada now
Born in Canada
Born in Canada
Born in Canada
I’m a cool non-binary in Canada now

Original song. Encouraging Steven Crowder to make a video out of these lyrics.

On a serious note though, this woman seems to have slipped over the edge and was not in her right mind. One can only imagine what a mentally unstable person, depressed from the endless Covid lockdown and watching endless government funded CBC News and Radio Canada anti-American propaganda, might do.  While the U.S. government has no legal right to pressure their own “free press”, might not the people who run CBC News take this as a wake-up call that their 24/7 #OrangeManBad #HateFest could have some negative consequences?!?

Legal Disclaimer: Everyone is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.  Let’s hope that whoever is eventually convicted of this crime gets the psychological help and legal assistance they need.
