Don Lemon’s Latest Reverse Racism is His Worst Yet!

The mainstream media is not journalism the same way that WWE is not wrestling.

There seems to be a grand confusion over on the left side of the American political spectrum, and it’s tainting the very discourse that we hold dear in this country.

The issue seems to be that the democratic party has moved away from the Constitutional premise that all are “created equal”, and are instead pushing for the government to create equal outcomes for all Americans, regardless of effort, dedication, or work ethic.

This has allowed for some ugly, hateful ideologies emerge, including the idea that racism and reverse racism are somehow different and easily distinguishable from one another.

Here’s a perfect example of why this is an issue, courtesy of CNN anchor Don Lemon.

I’m not sure where Don Lemon got the idea the he could tell us to not demonize groups of people by their common denominators, but then immediately do just that.

We must always remember that this is a divide and conquer tactic being deployed by the talking heads of television news in order to bolster and foment conflict.  They need conflict in order to gain viewers, and, in turn, make enough money to stay afloat by selling advertising slots in between their cliffhanger editing.

If we fall for this schtick, or if we allow Don Lemon’s asinine hypocrisy divide us, then CNN and the other mainstream entertainment companies will revel in their success and undoubtedly up the ante in order to promote further coverage of the events unfolding in reactionary fervor.

Remember, the media is not journalism the same way that WWE is not wrestling.  They are both the entertainment-driven fringes of their industry, and should both be taken with a heaping dose of salt.

New Pork Rules Could Outlaw Bacon in California

This would be an unforgivable overreach by the state government.

There are plenty of times in which Americans engage in a bit of exaggeration at the expense of our federal government.  It’s a defense mechanism, really, in which we are trained to extrapolate the worst possible outcome of any interaction with our elected officials, to guard against abuse at the hands of the tyrannical among us. Very rarely do these sorts of predictions come true.  Truly, this is just part of the American DNA, and it has deep roots in the caffeinated waters of Boston Harbor back in 1773. And if you thought that a new tax on tea was a flimsy enough excuse to rail against the oppressors, what happens when a state government outlaws bacon? At the beginning of next year, California will begin enforcing an animal welfare proposition approved overwhelmingly by voters in 2018 that requires more space for breeding pigs, egg-laying chickens and veal calves. National veal and egg producers are optimistic they can meet the new standards, but only 4% of hog operations now comply with the new rules. Unless the courts intervene or the state temporarily allows non-compliant meat to be sold in the state, California will lose almost all of its pork supply, much of which comes from Iowa, and pork producers will face higher costs to regain a key market. The threat is no hogwash, either. California’s restaurants and groceries use about 255 million pounds of pork a month, but its farms produce only 45 million pounds, according to Rabobank, a global food and agriculture financial services company. The National Pork Producers Council has asked the U.S. Department of Agriculture for federal aid to help pay for retrofitting hog facilities around the nation to fill the gap. Hog farmers said they haven’t complied because of the cost and because California hasn’t yet issued…

Secret Service Reduced to Starbuck’s Runs with Hunter Biden’s Wife

And just wait until you see what it cost the taxpayers!

For an elite law enforcement unit such as the Secret Service, there has to come a point in which you wonder what it is that you’re even doing sometimes. These are the folks who would take a bullet, very literally, for our executive branch, yet some within the first family seem to think that they’re also to be used as errand boys. Hunter Biden’s wife was spotted being escorted by Secret Service agents on a Malibu, California coffee run Tuesday. Melissa Cohen, mother of Hunter’s 1-year-old son Beau, was spotted grabbing an iced coffee at a Starbucks near the couple’s California home accompanied by Secret Service agents. One agent stayed in the car behind the wheel while another agent opened the door for Cohen as she returned to the car holding the iced coffee. And just wait until you see what this coffee run cost the taxpayers… The Daily Mail calculated that since top agents earn $148,437 per year, which translates to an hourly rate of $71.36, the two-hour coffee excursion had a taxpayer-funded price tag of up to $285.44. The couple has been given 24-hour Secret Service protection at their $20,000 a month Malibu home. Hunter Biden has long stood accused of benefiting unduly from his father’s political clout, and it appears that perhaps this sort of sentiment is now spreading throughout the family.
