Meghan McCain Involved in Ugly Media Mess with Seth Meyers

Meghan McCain has eloquently and elegantly escaped this train wreck of an interview with her wit and grit.

In these tense political times, there are both honorable antagonists and opportunistic ones, the latter of which seems to have permeated the entirety of the mainstream media.

This was by design, in many ways, as these entertainers must entertain in order to maintain their value to their handlers.  This is all driven by the plague-like consumerism and greed of the corporate world, and piped directly to screens in front of our faces 24/7, 365.

At times, the worlds of politics and mass media merge, and not always in a grand, graceful symbiosis, either.

Meghan McCain and “Late Night” host Seth Meyers butted heads on Wednesday morning’s show over McCain’s criticisms of Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, who has repeatedly been accused of anti-Semitism.

It escalated to the point where McCain asked the NBC host if he was Omar’s “publicist.”

Meyers brought up McCain’s commentary on ABC’s “This Week” following the deadly synagogue shooting at the Poway, Calif., last month where she invoked Omar’s tweets, and asserted that both Democrats and Republicans have to tackle anti-Semitism within their own parties.

Here’s where it gets wild:

“Were you bothered by her language on 9/11?” McCain asked.

“I thought it was taken out of context,” Meyers answered, “and I think if you watched that whole speech — ”

“Would you give President Trump the same leverage if he had said the same thing?” McCain challenged the NBC host. “I just think you have to give people the same credence.”

Meyers responded by saying President Trump was “in no position” to criticize Omar’s language on 9/11 based on his own language about 9/11. He also argued that Omar has apologized and promised to be more educated “by people who know about this” while the president hasn’t.

Meghan McCain has continually exuded a gritty determination to defend herself and her beliefs in the media minefield of today, exquisitely so on occasions such as this.

Pentagon Makes Scary Suggestion About Possible Troop Buildup

President Trump isn’t going to like it.

The Pentagon today seemed to contradict President Trump regarding US military presence abroad with a worrisome statement. Over the course of the last few weeks, tensions in the Middle East have been rising steadily.  Much of this turmoil has come from an ongoing series of attacks on the Saudi Arabians’ oil infrastructure which are believed to have been committed by either the Iranian Revolutionary Guard or their proxies. In the aftermath of the first two attacks, one that targeted four oil tankers and another that detonated an explosive at a Saudi Pipeline location, there was confusion in Washington DC.  President Trump was adamant that he wanted to avoid a war with Iran – despite the Persian nation’s incessant threats against the US. On the other side of the coin, however, was national security adviser John Bolton, whose hawkish lust for war is fairly well document from his previous stints in and around the White House. Now the Pentagon in weighing in, and Donald Trump won’t like it. The Pentagon on Thursday will present plans to the White House to send up to 10,000 more troops to the Middle East, in a move to beef up defenses against potential Iranian threats , U.S. officials said. The officials said no final decision has been made yet, and it’s not clear if the White House would approve sending all or just some of the requested forces. Officials said the move is not in response to any new threat from Iran but is aimed at reinforcing security in the region. They said the troops would be defensive forces, and the discussions include additional Patriot missile batteries, more ships and increased efforts to monitor Iran. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has indicated that he sides with the President on the matter, hoping to deter Iran from…

Not Just a Trade War Anymore: Senate Ponders New China Sanctions Over Concentration Camps

There are some evils in the world that must not go unpunished.

China

Much of the talk on the world’s economic stage of late has been in regard to the showdown between Washington and Beijing. Of course, the magnitude of this conflict warrants the concern.  We are talking about two of the world most powerful economic forces squaring off in a fight that could bring much the world into the ring with it. Both sides, at least of this writing, seem hellbent on coming out victorious – leading to inordinate weaving and bobbing by the stock markets and righteous anger in America’s agricultural heartland. Today, the US is considering imposing new sanctions on China…but not over this trade dispute.  These sanctions are in retaliation for something far more sinister. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee passed a bill Tuesday that, if enacted, would call for sanctions on the Chinese government and select individuals over the mass imprisonment of potentially millions of Muslims in concentration camps in eastern Xinjiang province. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP), under Xi Jinping, has building hundreds of “re-eduation centers” that it claims are “vocational training” facilities for Uighurs, Kazakhs, Kyrgyz, and other minorities. Those who have survived them call them “concentration camps” – locations where they are taken by force to learn Mandarin, renouncing their Muslim faith, memorize communist propaganda songs, and engage in slave labor. The gruesome tales from inside these camps are enough to boil any Americans’ blood; sleep deprivation, electroshock torture, and even death. As if that weren’t enough… The camps are so agonizing, a Kazakh survivor told Radio Free Asia (RFA) on Monday, that officials have established specific “crying time” to give those imprisoned a chance to release their frustrations. “They say, ‘Now you can cry,’ but if we cry at other times when we feel the need, they criticize and threaten us, saying they will…
