OF NARRATIVES PAST AND PRESENT: In the new issue of Commentary, Andrew Ferguson profiles veteran DC journalist Elizabeth Drew, whom he describes as “Washington’s Keeper of the Narratives.”Read the whole thing.
So, Trump war right about being wiretapped.
Climate change poses less of an immediate threat to the planet than previously thought because scientists got their modelling wrong, a new study has found. New research by British scientists reveals the world is being polluted and warming up less quickly than 10-year-old forecasts predicted, giving countries more time to get a grip on their carbon output.
The story in the UK Telegraph is correct is asserting that the "climate models" are wrong, but falls into the trap of assuming that burning carbon fuels is causing global warming. Not only are the models wrong, but the basic premise is wrong. The earth's climate is always changing but man has nothing to do with it. We could not change the climate if we wanted to and could not stop the climate from changing if we tried. Those are forces beyond our puny might: the power of the sun and the might of the earth's natural evolution is nothing we can affect at this stage of our development.
At this point, climate change is an article of faith, not of science.Massive Arctic Ice Gain Over The Past Five Years

The Brooke Baldwin mammary mess is just another example of how liberals leverage their ability to create new rules out of thin air as a means of asserting their power over us normals. What was A-OK yesterday is now forbidden, and what was forbidden yesterday is now mandatory. Their goal is to keep our heads spinning and paralyze us with fear, like nearsighted corporals caught in a minefield and terrified that if we take one wrong step we will detonate a concealed wrongthink booby-trap. They want us living in fear of their fussy wrath, and that is precisely why it is so important for us to keep abreast of pseudo-scandals like this so we can nip these libfascists' schemes in the bud and deny them the ability to rack up yet another victory in the culture war.
You expected something different? You surprised bro?
This is how

Press jubilant. The narrative vindicated.
Who could have predicted this?

Speech that costs $15,000 to protect you from Democrats with baseball bats is not free
Harvard names "Chelsea" (nee Bradley) Manning, convicted spy and transvestite, a "Fellow."
It's now a pattern: hate America, kill people, set off bombs, join academia, get professorship.
Can academia become any more corrupt?
Update (for those who have lost count):

The Washington Post March 2016:
Scott Shane of the Charity Case NY Times covers the breaking news from Twin Falls Idaho, where Russian interference led to a four person rally in a state Trump won by 31%. Mr. Shane omits the "four person" detail, which admittedly is based on a Facebook guess, not crowd photographs or even a photo of a picnic bench with four bridge players.
Stacy McCain on Kate Millett:
Malcontents and deviants are always attracted to radical movements, and sociopathic personalities are by no means rare among the leaders of such movements, as any student of Joseph Stalin’s career must recognize.Like most other famous feminists, Kate Millett never had children, so that her death is mourned only by her lesbian partner and by elderly comrades in the movement of which she was once “high priestess.” Most young feminists have little knowledge of the true history of their movement and, not knowing history, they are doomed to repeat it.
The next person who cites Kellyanne Conway's reference to "alternative facts" as an example of a lie is going to have my shoe in his ass.
Why is it so hard to understand that there are press “facts” and there are other facts that the press leaves out.
Tyler O'Neil writes an entire article about the real meaning of "1984" and appear oblivious to the fact that reality is NOT the media narrative.
Like the fact that when Antifa attacked Trump supporters at his rallies the press reported the “fact” that Trump’s rallies were violent, omitting the fact that the violence was all committed by Bernie and Hillary supporters.
There’s the fact that the rallies in Charlottesville involved “Nazis” - deluded jerks who could hold a convention in a phone booth but who actually marched peacefully - until they met an equally despicable gang of masked rioters (Antifa) and, because the police were told to stand down, the riot started.
There’s the “fact” of global warming and there’s the alternative fact that none of the global warming models match reality. Alternative facts are facts that the media, as they bring "1984" up to date, chooses to ignore.

“Why haven’t we seen movement over either 38 or 2909 since the horrific events in Virginia?” Walters asked, noting the Republicans control the House and the Senate and both Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell appear to be blocking bills advancing the right to keep and bear arms.“You know what?” Massie replied, “The Speaker told me he didn’t think the timing was right. And I think this is the exact timing to bring this bill.”Of course it is. What a disingenuous excuse. When will the timing be better?
Tell me again, what is Ryan good for?
Trump does what people want. Outrage ensues.
Trump made a deal with Democrats to fund hurricane disaster relief and raise the debt ceiling. “Never Trumpers” of every Party and label are shocked. He is being called names by his enemies and his supporters are accused of being duped by a Democrat in disguise.
But step back for a moment and ignore, if you can, all the rabid voices. Ask yourself what so many people who are not particularly partisan have asked of politicians in Washington. They want to see politicians get along and do things for the common good.
So here we have it. Money has been appropriated for disaster relief. The debt ceiling has been raised. It’s a two-fer. Who, except for partisans, want to see Congress tied up in gridlock, fail to pass disaster aid and wrangle until the very last moment in that perennial fight over raising the debt ceiling?
You know the debt ceiling will be raised; it always is. The only question is whether the Republicans will be accused of shutting down the government. The news stories were already written about the “horror” of the Government defaulting on the national debt. Now the Democrats and the Press – but I repeat myself – will have to put their stories and faux outrage back in the pending file for the next time this issue comes up. The best thing that could happen with the debt ceiling is to remove it. Get rid of an issue that only allows politicians to pretend to care, to posture and preen in a Kabuki theater that has gotten so old it’s grown a beard.
Stop it already. We know you’re lying. Clear the decks for issues that matter. Grow up.
