Hey, Conservatives: Stop Believing MSM Lies, Ok?

Some people on the right, foolishly accepting MSM framing, are horrified by a proposed anti-abortion law in South Carolina. The MSM is framing it as a ban on so much as talking about abortion – but I read the bill and while it does ban someone from, say, maintaining a website which instructs you on how to perform an abortion, I don’t see anything in there that I object to. After all, abortion is to be illegal, right? And as an illegal act, shouldn’t it be illegal to tell someone how to do the illegal act? I’m a pretty strong 1A guy here but if there was a website telling people how to set IED’s for the police, I think I’d have an objection to it being allowed to continue.

Of course, I’m no lawyer – so maybe there are aspects of this I’m missing. If so, then those in the know should be telling us their objections on that level…not just accepting MSM framing and running with it. I mean, for crying out loud, we all know the MSM lies all the time about everything. And on the abortion issue they are currently working overtime to spread fear among urban and suburban white women on the subject of abortion. If you click the linked article, you’ll see a series of links within it with frightening headlines about women losing their right to privacy – so, you know, the whole point here is fear-mongering. The MSM wants the reader to be afraid that those inbred, hill-ape, Christo-fascist morons are trying to impose theocracy. The bill doesn’t do that. What is does do, aside from making abortion illegal and defining an abortion, is make it illegal to prosecute the mother for obtaining an abortion, illegal to coerce a woman into an abortion, illegal to transport a minor across State lines to obtain an abortion, makes abortion legal to save the life of the mother and codifies the legality of contraception.

Not exactly Theocracy stuff.

But people on our side ran with it. Why? Can’t look into souls, of course, but I suspect that many are actually pro-choice but don’t want to come out and say it lest they lose Conservative audience share. Also, of course, quite a few of these people have liberal friends and they want to be sure such friends know they’re not like “those people”. You know – not like you and me.

And this is just one of many examples – couple days ago I saw that Hugh Hewitt was saying we had to codify same sex marriage and legalized birth control on the Federal level to prove we’re not going to ban SSM and birth control. So, we’re to play into DNC fear-mongering because…why? To stop something that isn’t happening? Or does Hugh and those like him just want something to separate from “those people”? Look, you inbred hicks, you got your abortion ban in some States, now you’d better sign on to a federal law imposing SSM even though the Constitution gives no warrant to the Federal government on the issue.

No. No, no, no and f*** no. Please, stop it: stop ratifying liberalism. We’re Conservatives, dammit. No, we don’t have a particular interest in banning SSM but this doesn’t mean we’re suddenly ok with it, nor that we’ve come around to approving the idea of the judicial activism which created it. SSM was (we hope) the last fling of leftwing judicial activism. Don’t put our stamp of approval on it.

And in the name of all that is decent in the world, stop believing the MSM. At all. Best if you simply stop consuming it – even if this costs you a gig or two. No amount of money is worth being associated with liars. But if you feel you must consume and participate, then at least have the common sense to know they’re lying and go to the original source to see what is happening before you comment. Yes, this might upset your liberal friends and some people might think you’re an inbred redneck…but that’s ok: the people who hate you for being actually Conservative are stupid and not worth caring about.

    So I was placed in Twitter jail for a few days for acknowledging what I think to be a universal truth – transgender people have a mental disorder. Evidently that comment offended the neurotic progressives at Twitter so I was suspended. In this new age of emotionally self absorbed millennials, there is to be no challenge to their disturbed world view and if you do, you are branded as violent. Yes, it’s that extreme and is the primary reason there is so much societal unrest. And if you haven’t dialed it on it yet, this new progressive paradigm is the 180 degree opposite of “diversity”, what progressive millennials actually want is straight up conformity. Well that will never happen because they base their worldview on lies. Systemic racism, climate change, Covid, “gun” violence”, transgenderism are all lies foisted upon an uneducated population designed to incite fear, panic and ultimately compliance.

    Mob justice is an intimidating force and few people can resist it. Democrats have mob intimidation down to an art form. We will see just how compliant Americans are this November.

      Well put, Cluster. I still have this nagging doubt in the back of my mind that the GOP will figure out some way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in November. On paper it should be a political tsunami of historic proportions. Biden’s approval among Hispanics, the replacement race that was forever going to entrench Democrats in power, is something like 20%. If that trend continues, the Democrat Party is toast. I think what no one, at least no one in a decision-making position in the Democrat Party thought about is that many of the people who are coming here are coming to escape people like our Democrats.

        There are early signs of an American revival. Radical Baltimore DA Marilyn Mosby lost her primary, MAGA candidate Kari Lake has a double digit lead on her RINO opponent, and Liz Cheney is toast as is Kinzinger so I think Americans are just sitting back for now and enjoying summer, but plan to have their voices heard in November. At least that’s my hope.

      • Retired Spook July 24, 2022 / 10:01 am

        Glad to hear Kari Lake is going well. I’ve seen her interviewed a number of times. What a breath of fresh air in a stale political world.

      Al Gore warned in 2006 that we only had 10 years left to act, or it would be too late. Oops! This climate debate has been going on for over 4 decades, longer if you count the global cooling/ice age rhetoric of the 1970s. At some point the majority of Americans are going to just dismiss it. Many already do. I’m not saying we shouldn’t live in an environmentally responsible way, but it’s the height of hubris to believe that Man can alter the climate. We can’t even accurately predict the weather a week or two out.

    Mark, the title of your post reminds me of an old Soviet era quote often attributed to Alexander Solzhenitsyn, but actually from the novel A Mountain of Crumbs, about growing up behind the Iron Curtain by Elena Gorokhova:

    “The Rules are simple: they lie to us, we know they’re lying, they know we know they’re lying, but they keep lying anyway, and we keep pretending to believe them.”

    Until recently that also described 21st century America. The lying continues, but the only people who still pretend to believe the lies anymore are the ones who benefit politically by doing so; many outright challenge them. Unfortunately, many of those who do challenge the lies are just cancelled by the people or groups perpetuating the lies, backed up by the government bureaucracy and 90% of the agenda media. That’s a trend that’s not going to end well. Armed Conservatives have shown extraordinary restraint in the face of Democrat authoritarianism, but, at some point, what used to be radical Leftists but are now the mainstream of the Democrat Party, are going to cancel the wrong person, someone who will fight back with extreme prejudice, and then the floodgates are going to swing open, and Democrats are going to become an endangered species. And no, I’m not advocating violent revolution, just an observation from an old man who’s been around the block a few times.

      You are 100% right. The Left will not stop until they are put down, one way or the other. I wish that weren’t true either, but it is and I will NEVER conform or comply to their dictates. Give me liberty or give me death is NOT just a saying … it’s a way of life

      • Retired Spook July 25, 2022 / 12:04 pm

        For the longest time, probably most of my adult life, one of the major differences between us and the Left was that they wanted to burn everything down and start over, and we wanted to restore things the way they used to be. More and more I’m encountering Conservatives who share your viewpoint, that, at the very least, we need to burn down the Left, and if there’s some collateral damage, to borrow the Left’s mantra, “it’s for the greater good.” I’m not sure I’m quite there yet, but it wouldn’t take much to push me over the edge. But the Left has destroyed so much that is good about Western Civilization, it’s going to be a tough slog, assuming we achieve the level of political power to enable restoration and the political will to achieve it.

    There’s been a lot of contradictory talk coming from both sides of the gun debate about the heroism of Elijah Dicken, the 22-year-old who took out the shooter at the Greenwood Park mall just east of Indianapolis last week. Having qualified Expert in the Navy on enough consecutive occasions that I earned the Silver E to wear on my Expert Pistol medal, I can’t say enough about the courage and performance of this young man. The requirements for the military Expert Pistol medal have changed over the years. Back in the 70s and 80s when I qualified Expert with a Colt 1911 .45,, the requirement for Expert, IIRC, was 250 out of 300. To put that in perspective, qualification consisted of 30 rounds, 10 slow fire, 10 timed fire, and 10 rapid fire. The bullseye was 10 points, 9 for the next ring, 8 for the third ring, and so on. The distance was 25 yards. I typically scored around 265 to 275, and I think the highest I ever scored was 280, which meant I didn’t have too many rounds outside of the 8 ring, and close to half my shots were in the bullseye. I say all this because I was shooting at a stationary target with no one shooting back at me, taking my sweet time on all but the last ten shots, and even the rapid fire wasn’t as fast as I could pull the trigger. Contrast that to Elijah Dicken, who responded within 15 seconds of the time the shooter fired the first shot. Witnesses put his first shot at around 30-40 yards, While motioning for bystanders to stay behind him, he hit a moving target 8 our of 10 shots.

    Indiana doesn’t have a lot of mass shootings. but THAT’S HOW WE STOP THEM.

    • jdge1 July 26, 2022 / 1:57 am

      From what I’ve read Elijah took 10 shots from a distance of 30 – 40 yards, hitting his moving target 8 times, all while trying to get innocent people behind him out of harm’s way. The fact that his target was an active shooter with a rifle makes Elijah’s feat, all the more impressive. Those who criticize his actions are despicable people with an agenda that has nothing to do with saving lives.

    • jdge1 July 26, 2022 / 2:17 am

      Spook, after rereading your post I realized you already stated most of what I added (only better). Sorry about that.

      • Retired Spook July 26, 2022 / 7:52 am

        Regardless of how you put it, it was an amazing feat. Would that all individuals who carry a firearm were as well trained and talented as Elijah Dicken. I doubt most police officers could duplicate what he did, and I hope his accomplishment will inspire others to improve their level of training.

    Portland, which was roiled by near-nightly Black Lives Matter protests for months in 2020, cut the city’s police budget by $15 million that year. But in November it reversed course, funneling $5.2 million back to the police department as homicides skyrocketed.

    At the briefing, Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell announced that 16 new police officers were sworn in on Thursday in what he described as the “largest new hire event we’ve had in a very, very long time.”

    Only in la-la land run by imbeciles would anyone not realize the negative ramifications of defunding the police, that much, that fast. Why would anyone want to join a police force that is actively sanctioned at such stark levels, where the DA lets criminals walk, and where most all police action is placed under the microscope by people looking to charge you for failing to meet their obscure notion of justice, for doing what you were trained to do.

    The downside of the Covid vaccines just keeps getting more and more stark.

    The British Medical Journal (BMJ) quietly published a remarkable paper last month titled, “Serious Adverse Events of Special Interest Following mRNA Vaccination in Randomized Trials.”

    The conclusion is shocking. Let’s parse out the researchers’ technically-worded statement:

    > The excess risk of serious adverse events of special interest surpassed the risk reduction for COVID-19 hospitalization relative to the placebo group in both Pfizer and Moderna trials (2.3 and 6.4 per 10,000 participants, respectively).

    In other words, they’re saying the risk of having a serious vaccine injury is greater than the benefits of the covid vaccines.

    Smartly, the researchers used the drugmakers’ own clinical trial data, so there’s no arguing about the dataset. It’s the same dataset the FDA relied on to grant EUA approval to the drugs. Everyone is on the same page. Combining the two trials, “there was a +43% increased risk of serious AESI and an absolute risk increase of +12.5 serious AESI per 10,000 vaccinated participants.” (emphasis – mine)

    Also, between both trials, the largest increase in absolute risk occurred in the category of COAGULATION DISORDERS. Clotting. Imagine that. And they found “more cardiovascular AESIs occurred in the vaccine group in the Pfizer trial.”

    The study also gets into why the FDA’s original conclusions were different than theirs. It’s pretty technical, having to do with things like that the FDA only counted a patient having multiple types of injuries as only a single injury. But the researchers appear to criticize the FDA, noting “In July 2021, the FDA reported detecting four potential adverse events of interest: pulmonary embolism, acute myocardial infarction, immune thrombocytopenia, and disseminated intravascular coagulation following Pfizer’s vaccine based on medical claims data in older Americans.”

    Then, they noted despite finding signals of high adverse events, nothing much has happened, not in a YEAR: “FDA stated it would further investigate the findings but at the time of our writing has not issued an update.” Weird.

    The researchers also shored up their conclusion by observing their results were “compatible with a recent preprint analysis of COVID-19 vaccine trials by Benn et al., which found no evidence of a reduction in overall mortality in the mRNA vaccine trials based on data from the later, March 2021 BLA (Biologics License Application) timepoints that underpinned subsequent regulatory approval.”

    Studies like this one, and the Benn preprint, may be what’s fueling the narrative pivot we appear to be seeing. They directly challenge the original conclusions the FDA regulators used to approve the drugs. We have no idea how many similar studies are in the pipeline, but journal editors do. And we know that government actors like Fauci and Collins talk to the journal editors; we’ve seen this kind of “cooperation” in the covid emails. We’ve also seen Fauci and Collins plotting media campaigns.

    So it’s not a stretch to link what’s happening in journals to what we see happening in corporate media. If there is a connection, things will get very interesting, very fast.

      In 2020, Bridle was awarded a $230,000 government grant for research on COVID vaccine development. As part of that research, he and a team of international scientists requested a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) access to Pfizer’s biodistribution study from the Japanese regulatory agency. The research,previously unseen, demonstrates a huge problem with all COVID-19 vaccines.

      “We made a big mistake,” Bridle says. “We thought the spike protein was a great target antigen; we never knew the spike protein itself was a toxin and was a pathogenic protein. So, by vaccinating people we are inadvertently inoculating them with a toxin.”
