VP Pence Takes Media to the Woodshed Over Lack of Coverage of the Return of Korean War Remains

Vice President Mike Pence is none too happy with the way the mainstream media has been behaving lately, especially in regard to the lack of coverage they have provided to the return of human remains from the Korean War back to U.S. soil.

Many of the major networks failed to break into regularly scheduled programming in order to show the ceremony on television, which clearly illustrates the utter contempt the media has for anything positive coming out of the Trump administration. How sick and sad is that?

“I think there’s a lot of people in the so-called mainstream media that would do well to spend a little bit more time traveling across this country and listening to the American people,” Pence said during an interview with “Fox & Friends” that aired Thursday.

“‘Cause frankly, as I travel on behalf of this administration, meeting with groups large and small, I sense a great enthusiasm across the country,” he continued. “People see when it comes to President Donald Trump, it really has been a year and a half of promises made and promises kept.”

The potential remains of American troops who died in North Korea were returned to U.S. soil Wednesday as part of the four-point joint declaration signed by President Trump and Kim Jong Un at their historic summit in Singapore in June.

Pence flew to Honolulu, Hawaii, to greet 55 caskets carrying remains believed to belong to either U.S. servicemen or soldiers from a range of United Nations ally countries who also fought in the war. The remains will now undergo analysis by the U.S. military’s Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency for identification, according to the Associated Press.

Out of CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News, only Fox carried coverage of the ceremony and aired Pence’s address to the nation. The other networks did cover some of it afterwards, later in the evening, but at that point, the damage was done.

Look, it’s perfectly acceptable for folks in the media to not like Trump, however, that doesn’t give them the right to choose to dishonor the memory of men who gave their lives in order to secure freedom and liberty for their fellow countrymen and protect them from growing dangers across the globe. That’s precisely what happened here.

These outlets were willing to spit on the sacrifice of brave souls in order to deliver a blow to the president and vice president, putting politics over basic, human decency. Tragic.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
