Forget billions spent on cybersecurity, US gov. employee at USGS infects gov. computers with malware, viewed 9000 pages of porn, malware present on many pages he visited. US gov. won’t release his name-Washington Post, BBC

10/30/18,How’d this government agency get infected with malware? 9,000 pages of porn.” Washington Post, Michael Brice-Saddler 

“A federal employee infected a U.S. government network with malware after viewing more than 9,000 pornographic webpages at work, according to an inspector general’s report.

The report, published Oct. 17, shows that the employee’s actions were discovered during a security audit of the computer network at the U.S. Geological Survey. The employee had an “extensive history of visiting adult pornography websites” on a work computer, many of which were Russian and contained malware that spread to the USGS network.

The USGS is a government agency that performs analysis of the country’s landscape and seeks to recognize hazards that may threaten natural resources.

The employee, who was not named in the report, saved many of the pornographic images onto an unauthorized USB device and a personal cellphone – which was also found to contain malware. The Android phone was connected to the employee’s government-issued computer, according to the report.

Now, the Office of Inspector General is recommending that the USGS enforce a “strong blacklist policy” of “rogue” web domains and more closely monitor its employees’ internet usage.

“An ongoing effort to detect and block known pornographic websites, and websites with suspicious origins, will likely enhance preventive countermeasures,” the report reads. The inspector general also suggested that the USGS enact a security policy that would restrict usage of unauthorized USB devices and personally owned mobile devices.

The USGS is part of the U.S. Interior Department, which specifically prohibits employees from using government systems to view pornography, according to the report. Employees are also asked to “refrain from connecting personal devices, such as USB drives and cellphones, to Government-issued computers or networks.”

The employee had previously signed a statement indicating understanding of these rules, according to the report. Nancy DiPaolo, external affairs director at Interior’s inspector general’s office, told Nextgov that the employee no longer works for the USGS.”

10/30/18, “Porn-loving US official spreads malware to government network,” BBC

“The porn habit of an employee at the US Geological Survey (USGS) led to a government network becoming infected with malware, an official report has revealed.

The employee, who has not been named, had “an extensive history of visiting adult pornography websites”.

Investigators found malware on many of the 9,000 pages he or she accessed.

The US Office of the Inspector General has recommended that the USGS blacklist “rogue” websites.

“Our analysis confirmed that many of the pornographic images were subsequently saved to an unauthorised USB device and personal Android cell phone,” the report explained.

As well as government computers, the employee’s personal mobile was also found to be infected.

USB risk

Reports of the case were picked up by news site TechCrunch, which confirmed that the Earth Resources Observation and Science Center (Eros) does not maintain any classified networks.

The site also reported that the malware in question was designed to steal data from infected computers and was “associated” with ransomware attacks.

USGS employees are advised not to connect USB devices or mobile phones to government computers – though USB connections are not disabled.

An IT policy that prevents USB use should be implemented, the US Department of the Interior suggested.”

“Hispanic voters were supposed to be the party’s future. It’s not working out that way.”

“[University of Southern California professor Roberto] Suro suggests that Latinos more closely resemble independent voters rather than “a steadfast Democratic constituency.” The polls, says Suro, also dispute “the presumption that Trump’s immigration policies have alienated large numbers of Latinos.”

The fact that Donald Trump is viewed in a relatively favorable light by as many as 1 in 4 Hispanic voters should be alarming for Democrats, but it’s not even their biggest problem. That would be turnout.”…

Invasion of US southern border isn’t a legal problem, can’t be solved by laws or executive actions. It’s a security issue effecting the entire United States-Rush Limbaugh, 6/25/2018

6/25/18, “Who’s Behind the Invasion of America?” Rush Limbaugh

This is not the day-to-day illegal lineup of people trying to get in. This is a steady invasion that has been going on intensely here for probably four or five years, and some would argue longer than that…. 

Can we pass a law that will stop all these migrants? No. Can you enforce a law that might stop them? Maybe. But what’s really going on in the border is it’s not a legal problem, when you get down to brass tacks. It’s not something that’s gonna be solved by the law.What’s going on on the border is a security issue….

Until we get serious about the security to our country posed by this invasion, we’re never gonna deal with it. If we deal with it with executive actions, executive orders, or new laws, we’re not getting anywhere near what the problem really is. It is a security issue. By security, I mean security of the United States and the states and the people on the border where all this is originally at first happening…. 

Every law that they attempt to pass or enforce, somebody is gonna come along and sue the United States on it, tie it up in court for years while the migration or invasion continues. But if it’s a security issue, and if it’s dealt with as a security issue, well, then you have an entirely different framework within which you are dealing. And it certainly is a security issue.”…  


US elites insist on open borders in part because they view themselves as superior to those they rule who want secure borders. Elites couldn’t bear agreeing with such inferiors-Peggy Noonan, Wall St. Journal, 3/24/2016

“If they convincingly attempted to protect the people and respected their anxieties, the people would feel far less rage.”… 

3/24/2016, How to Defeat Radical Jihadism, Peggy Noonan, Wall St. Journal, opinion (subscrip)

It will require Western elites to form an alliance with the citizens they’ve long disrespected.”

“These things are obvious after the Brussels bombings: In striking at the political heart of Europe, home of the European Union, the ISIS jihadists were delivering a message: They will not be stopped….

Radical jihadism is not going to go away, not for a long time, probably decades. For 15 years [as of 2016] it has in significant ways shaped our lives, and it will shape our children’s too….

The usual glib talk of politicians—calls for unity, vows that we will not give in to fear—will produce in the future what they’ve produced in the past: nothing…. 

Let’s say only 10% of the 1.6 billion harbor feelings of grievance toward “the West,” or desire to expunge the infidel, or hope to re-establish the caliphate. That 10% is 160 million people. Let’s say of that group only 10% would be inclined toward jihad. That’s 16 million. Assume that of that group only 10% really means it—would really become jihadis or give them aid and sustenance. 

That’s 1.6 million. That is a lot of ferociousness in an age of increasingly available weapons, including the chemical, biological and nuclear sort….We must absorb that central fact….

The “they” is radical Islamic jihadism. Normal people have seen that a long time, but the leaders of the West-its political class, media powers and opinion shapershave had a hard time coming to terms....They cast about-if only we give young Islamist men jobs programs or social integration schemes, we can stop this trouble. But jihadists don’t want to be integrated. They want trouble….

On April 28, 2010, in Rochdale, England, Britain’s then prime minister [Gordon Brown] accidentally performed a great public service by revealing what liberal Western leaders think of their people

At a campaign stop a 65-year-old woman named Gillian Duffy approached him and shared her concerns regarding crime, taxes and immigration. Mr. Brown made a great show of friendliness and appreciation. Then, still wearing a live mic, he got into his Jaguar, complained to his aides about “that woman” and said, “She’s just a sort of bigoted woman who said she used to be Labour.”

That was the authentic sound of the Western elite.…The elites have for a long time enjoyed nothing more than sneering at the anger and “racism” of their own people. They do not have the wisdom to understand that if they convincingly attempted to protect the people and respected their anxieties, the people would feel far less rage…. 

Republican operatives and elected officials in the U.S. don’t want to change their stand on illegal immigration, and a key reason is pride. They’re stiff-necked, convinced of their own higher moral thinking, and they will have open borderswhich they do not call “open borders” but “comprehensive immigration reform,” which includes border-control mechanisms.

But they’ll never get to the mechanisms. They see the rise of Donald Trump and know it has something to do with immigration, but—they can’t bow. Some months ago I spoke to an admirable conservative group and said the leaders of the GOP should change their stand. I saw one of their leaders wince, as if I had made a faux pas. Which, I understood, I had. I understood too that terrorism is only making the border issue worse, and something’s got to give.

But I doubt they can change.”…

US and UK ‘special relationship’ turns out to be that the two are equals in hypocrisy, determined to destroy Russia for no reason but adoring and selling arms to Saudi terror government-Strategic Culture, Cloughley

10/30/18, Sanctions and the Hypocrisy of Washington and London,” Strategic Culture, Brian Cloughley

“The message is clear: The US and Britain are determined to damage and if possible destroy Russia, and will continue to use whatever means they can to do this, by military confrontation and inflicting economic sanctions. On the other hand they are steadfast in their resolve to support the Saudi dictatorship in pursuit of their money-spinning arms industries, no matter what evil excesses may be perpetrated by the Riyadh regime.

In other words, they are complete hypocrites.”


Texas Big Bend area is easiest way to illegally cross US border, few patrols. US has ceded this land, a quarter of the entire US southern border, to drug cartels. What's here to stop them, says border agent-LA Times, 12/16/2017

12/16/2017, Could the Big Bend in Texas be the border’s weakest link? Smuggling of drugs and migrants is on the rise, LA Times, Molly Hennessy-Fiske

“Just yards from the Rio Grande, Agent Lee Smith pointed to footprints and scraps of carpet. 

Smugglers tie carpet to their shoes in hopes of covering their tracks, he said. Smith followed the rough trail through thick brush, his fellow agent close behind, wearing a bulletproof vest and carrying a long gun.They saw no one. But the agents sensed smugglers watching, waiting.

They come right across. What’s here to stop them? Smith said.

Sometimes smuggler scouts cross on horseback: The muddy banks are pocked with human and horse tracks. The river here, about 60 miles east of El Paso, is just a few yards wide, one of the reasons Border Patrol agents in Texas’ Big Bend region have seen troubling increases in smuggling, attacks on agents and migrant deaths in recent years.

There’s hundreds of these crossings just in our area of operation,” Smith said. “The drug cartels, they own this part of the land. We have conceded large swaths of the border. There are areas where there are not agents for days.

He called the vast Big Bend “the absolute weakest link on the southern border.”

The natural barriers beyond the river that made the landscape a stunning backdrop for “No Country for Old Men,” “There Will Be Blood” and “Giant” were also supposed to protect it. Or at least that was long the assumption of U.S. officials. There’s the river. There are mountains–the snow-covered Chinati, Chisos and Davis ranges….

But smuggling routes shift according to the dictates of criminal organizations, often in response to border enforcement. In the late 1990s, border traffic moved from Southern California to remote desert stretches of Arizona; by 2013, it moved east again to Texas’ Rio Grande Valley, the epicenter of migration and enforcement ever since. But now new routes are opening up to the west, in Big Bend.

“As things in the Rio Grande Valley get tougher to cross, they’re looking for other places, and this is a spot that over the past few years has become established for smuggling,” said Border Patrol Agent Rush Carter, a spokesman for the agency in Big Bend.

Just as migrants once tried to cross the Arizona desert unprepared, Central Americans are arriving in Big Bend without cold weather gear, abandoned to the elements by smugglers. Migrants tell agents that smugglers advertise the area as an easy crossing, the least patrolled stretch of border.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection divides the southern border into nine sectors. Big Bend is the largest: 135,000 square miles, 510 miles of river, a quarter of the entire southern border.

The sector stretches north to include 118 counties in Texas and all of Oklahoma. Yet it has the smallest staff of any southern border sector, about 500 agents assigned to a dozen stations and several highway checkpoints including one in Sierra Blanca, notorious for large drug busts. That’s fewer agents than have been assigned to a single station in the Tucson sector, Smith said.

President Trump has promised to add 5,000 Border Patrol agents, potentially doubling Big Bend staffing, but with high turnover, agents said that they would still be spread thin.

With such a small staff, agents usually patrol alone, with hand-me-down technology from other areas, including radios so spotty agents have erected makeshift cell towers in the brush to boost reception. Sometimes they just yell.

They don’t have observation towers along the border as in the Rio Grande Valley, and their single aerostat blimp hovering overhead, unlike those used in the Valley, is not equipped with infrared technology, Smith said.

“You know what it [the blimp] helps?” Smith said. “Migrants. They use it as a guide: Go that direction.”

The only time they received drones, agents complained, was when the devices were sent west from southeast Texas for safekeeping before Hurricane Harvey hit in August.

Since the summer [2017], Big Bend saw the biggest increase in unaccompanied youth caught on the border, mostly Central Americans:

278 since the federal fiscal year that began in October, up 74% from last year. By contrast, the number of youths caught in the Rio Grande area dropped 64% during the same period.

At the same time, Big Bend saw drug seizures drop, Smith and other agents said. That’s because smugglers use the migrants as decoys, they said, and abandon dozens at a time to overwhelm agents, before sending drug mules with 50-pound backpacks of marijuana in their wake.

Big Bend agents caught 6,000 people last fiscal year, which ended in September. During the next two months, they caught 1,646 people, putting them on pace to far exceed last year’s total.

Big Bend agents seized 40,852 pounds of marijuana last fiscal year, but 4,211 pounds in the first two months of this year. That’s more than a thousand pounds less per month.

As conditions deteriorated, some agents said they feared a death was inevitable….Last month, the agents’ worst fears were realized.

Two Border Patrol agents were injured [one of whom died] while investigating smugglers who had reached a culvert under Interstate 10, about 55 miles north of Porvenir. Both agents were fathers with years of experience. Both suffered serious head injuries. Agent Rogelio Martinez died. Agent Stephen Garland is still recovering and has trouble remembering what happened, said Smith, who spoke recently to the agent, who declined interviews. The FBI is still investigating the incident, and there have been no arrests.

Walking the 9-foot-deep concrete culvert where Martinez, 36, was found fatally injured, Smith pointed out signs of recent smuggling: 

A gray backpack, a man’s black-and-white checked shirt, an empty water jug in a holder sewn from a pair of blue jeans.

Up on the highway, traffic zoomed past a lighted sign advertising “Reward for information Border Patrol agent death.”

Days after the agents were injured [one agent was actually murdered–not just “injured”], another was sent to investigate potential smuggler activity in a culvert farther south, alone. The agent, who asked not to be named because he was not authorized to speak, didn’t encounter anyone, but he was nervous: His two backup agents at a nearby station has been sent north to help after the attack.

“If it picks up here, we’re just going to be unprepared,” Smith said. He and other agents said they need more staff, improved radios, cameras and other equipment. Otherwise, they worry they may become overwhelmed the way Rio Grande Valley agents were by tens of thousands of Central American youth and families in 2014.

They also worry for the migrants unprepared for the harsh conditions of Big Bend. This month, agents patrolling by air spotted 15 Guatemalan men lost in the desert. The agents caught and brought them to a station, but the migrants were already suffering hypothermia. One died. Migrant families often turn themselves in, Smith said, but agents are increasingly discovering skeletons in the desert.

Recently a group of 50 migrants–mostly Guatemalan families and a couple of Hondurans–turned themselves in at Presidio, about 250 miles east of El Paso. Across from the bustling Mexican town of Ojinaga, connected by an official bridge and makeshift river crossings marked by guide wires, Presidio has become a hot spot for families who claim asylum [to be paid for by struggling US taxpayers], agents said.

On the Mexican side stands a roughly 50-foot-high retention wall topped with razor wire, set back from the river, built after a flood in 2008. Agents said it may be time to build a similar wall on the U.S. side. [It “may be time?”] 

A day after the Central American group arrived, a half dozen agents were still processing them in the Presidio station, a collection of trailers with reward posters on the door for Martinez….

They lined up a dozen of the migrants…outside where Border Patrol vans waited to take them to two other Big Bend stations. Agents there would have to interrupt other duties to help process the latest arrivals."


Chris Wallace surprised to find bias in Washington Post front page headline: No mention that shooter of Republican congressman Scalise was Bernie Sanders supporter-Rush Limbaugh

10/30/18, “Chris Wallace Surprised by Biased Headlines,” Rush Limbaugh

“On Fox News Sunday, “Chris Wallace contrasted front-page headlines from The Washington Post the day after Republican Congressman Steve Scalise was shot at an Alexandria, VA … by a Bernie Sanders supporter with the Post’s headline following the capture of mail bomb mastermind and Trump supporter Cesar Sayoc. 

“Not surprisingly, the Post made sure to emphasize that Sayoc’s political views were mentioned in the headline while the” guy who shot up Scalise was not mentioned, politically, at all — and it’s Chris Wallace holding these two headlines up and pointing it out. “The Sayoc headline read

‘Bomb Suspect Outspoken Supporter of Trump.’
Wallace said that the headline really surprised him as he expected the [Washington Post] headline to read ‘Suspect Arrested.’

“A closer inspection of the article finds that it does not even mention that Sayoc was the bombing suspect until the fourth paragraph. Rather, the first three paragraphs read like a psychological profile of Sayoc, talking about his support for President Trump and all of the stickers on his van… On the other hand, the headline after the Scalise shooting read 

‘Congressman Shot in Va…’”…
It didn’t mention his support for Bernie Sanders.

“The front page article did not mention his support for [Bernie] Sanders but footnoted” like with an asterisk “that his social media posts were ‘highly critical of President Trump…’” So here’s Chris Wallace holding up the obvious evidence of media bias here that he said “surprised” him. Later on, “The Wall Street Journal’s Jason Riley remarked: ‘If you want to know why Trump won’t give up Twitter and social media, that is why. That headline is why,’” and it’s exactly right.

Folks, every day Donald Trump is the only Republican tweeting or informing people about the success of his policies….And if it weren’t for him, it wouldn’t be out there — other than us, of course, here in so-called alternative media.

But the point is, the Republican Party is not even touting the Trump administration’s agenda’s successes. Trump alone is doing it, and that’s why he’s not gonna give up the opportunity to do it, and I hope he never does. But when I realized this, that Trump is the only guy… Like today there are a couple of tweets from Trump tweeting the consumer confidence as being at a record high and relating it to how can peopling be voting Democrat when this kind of great economic news has been the news of the day for two years?…

You know, Republicans are running for election in 435 House seats, 35/36 Senate seats. Where is…? I know Ronna McDaniel is out there tweeting some things out now, but where is the party in general touting itself and its achievements? You don’t see it, other than from Donald Trump, and he’s not whining about that. He’s unabashed. He just tweets it out and gets it, and he tweets the truth out about the media as they report on him and lie or distort or what have you.”…image above from


Rush Limbaugh educates Max Boot: ‘There is nothing that I or anybody else I know in conservative media could do that even approaches what the Obama FBI, Dept. of Justice, and intelligence community did and is doing in corrupting the highest levels of our government for the express purpose of overturning an election’-Rush Limbaugh, 10/29/18

10/29/18, “The Drive-Bys Are Driving Voters to Trump, Rush Limbaugh

They’ve done everything they can to overturn the 2016 elections.The idea that Washington should be able to command anything at any time is what the left wants with the White House. That’s how they want to use it….

After reporting on the anti-Semitic hate crime in Pittsburgh, NBC shifted over to complaining about Trump for not bowing to the man’s hatred.On Saturday, he [Trump] continued with his midterm campaign commitments despite that tragedy,’ chided anchor Willie Geist, while White House correspondent Kelly O’Donnell huffed about how the ‘President’s response to this tragedy has been to speak extensively about all aspects of it while not giving up his midterm fight.’”

So Trump’s supposed to stop his campaign. Trump’s supposed to stop the rallies. Trump is supposed to bring everything to a screeching halt because Trump is supposed to lose. People are supposed to vote against Trump. “NBC: If Americans Are ‘Fed Up’ and ‘Mean It’…” See, they do believe that. Don’t doubt me. I’m telling you, they are relying on their belief that you are as fed up with Trump as they are, and that you mean it….

Trump should cease this campaigning. He should stop it! This is unseemly. ABC: Trump ‘At the Center’ of All the Political Violence Right Now.

That was George Stephanopoulos on This Week yesterday [Sunday 10/28]. “After giving a rundown of the violence of the week, he declared it all occurred ‘against the backdrop of the ugliest political climate in modern times,’” and, of course, “at the center” of it is Donald Trump. No. (chuckles) No! At the center of it is the media, the media and their reporting on Trump….
So now we have a tweet from Max Boot. You know, I don’t know what happened to Max Boot. Max Boot used to be a columnist and reporter for the Wall Street Journal. He’s an international political expert at what have you, and I used to think of the guy as a conservative, being a Journal opinion writer.

He would occasionally send me his pieces in advance, thinking I would enjoy them. But ever since Trump was elected, he has gone off the reservation — I mean, to the point that a lot of people are asking, “What happened to Max Boot?” Now he’s on CNN as often as he can get on there just ripping Trump a new one, primarily from the standpoint that Trump’s manners and his behavior and his comportment just isn’t presidential. You know, the usual complaint from the establishment crowd.

So he [Max Boot] tweets out, “There is partisanship on both sides of the political spectrum, but no left-wing outlets propagate extremism as successfully or widely as conservative media do. Conservatives are being brainwashed in an ‘echo chamber’ for ‘rumor and conspiracy theory.’” This tweet is then replied to by John Harwood, a former New York Times/Wall Street Journal reporter now at CNBC who has never been anything other than an uber-ultraleftist.

Harwood says Max Boot “is 100% correct. most important: extremism on the right has gotten baked into the entire movement and GOP – WH, Congress, Fox, Limbaugh, Breitbart, CPAC etc.” I maintain to you, as I said in my opening monologue of the program today, that we get up every day and we see people and institutions that we admire and respect under attack. I mean, every day the left is politicizing everything, including mass murder wherever it happens. They are politicizing the weather.

Republicans have been called murderers by the Democrat Party and willing accomplices in the media, Mr. Boot, simply because we don’t believe in the man-made climate change hoax. Murderers! Republicans have been called murderers for not supporting Obama’s takeover of the American health care industry for the purposes of putting it under the auspices of government for the purposes of controlling the way people live.... 

The mainstream media is extremism, if you ask me. That’s what they’ve become. Daily media reporting has become extremism. It certainly isn’t factual, it certainly has an investment in the outcome of events, and somehow we conservatives in the media are far more successful in propagating extremism — and that you in this audience are being “brainwashed in an echo chamber by rumor and conspiracy theory.” Which takes me to President Trump. President Trump tweeted — and I also mentioned in the first hour that Trump was elected to behave differently.

He was elected precisely because he is cut from a different cloth….

“This guy can’t be serious. He’s not gonna last this campaign two weeks!” And then the first polls came out, and they saw Trump leading. And they said, “Ah, this is not gonna last. This is crazy.” Trump kept slowly but surely eliminating all of the other Republicans in the primary, and all of them had this preferable, laid-back, walk-all-over-me attitude toward the left and Democrats that you want….

Then they [the Beltway Establishment] started the two-year silent coup, and that is the real reason for all of the suspicion about those of you on the left.

I’m gonna tell you something, Mr. Boot.

There is nothing that I or anybody else I know in conservative media could do that even approaches what the Obama FBI, Department of Justice, and intelligence community did and is doing in corrupting the highest levels of our government for the express purpose of overturning an election. I don’t care how much power you think I’ve got, I couldn’t come close to doing what was done and has been done the past two years.

Including the Mueller investigation, including the planting of outright lies five times a day in media all over the country from anonymous people alleging that it was only a matter of time before proof that Trump had colluded with Russia to steal the election was found. For two years, Mr. Boot — for two years, with no evidence and everybody in on it knew there was no evidence — everybody in on this knew there had not been any collusion. They were hoping….

The FBI, the DOJ, they knew the tricks being played, and they willingly supported those tricks. They ignored the real collusion and rigging of elections on the part of the Hillary Clinton campaign, the DNC.

I don’t care what kind of power you think we’ve got over here on conservative media, but we couldn’t get anywhere… I mean, we couldn’t come close to getting away with running any kind of a soft or a silent coup using the upper reaches of power at the Department of Justice, all Obama loyalists and Hillary loyalists. No way we would have the power to plant spies in the campaign of a presidential campaign that we opposed.

There is no way any of us could write up a phony document purported to be real intelligence claiming that Hillary did despicable things on a bed in Moscow and go get a FISA warrant to spy on the Hillary campaign. There’s no way any of us in the conservative media could come close to doing anything that has become a natural, everyday occurrence on the left. You want to talk about extremism and this so-called magical ability to brainwash?

What do you think’s happened the past two years in the mainstream media? Brainwashing the American people?I’m gonna ask a question here. When Robert Mueller does not come up with the goods — when it is finally admitted or alleged that Donald Trump did not collude with the Russians and he didn’t cheat to steal the election — how many crazies on the left are gonna go bonkers when they hear this?

Meaning how many people in this country to this day, at this moment, still believe that Trump stole the election, that he worked with Putin and the Russians to do it, and it’s only a matter of time? And why do they think this? Because the media has assured them that it happened for two years with the constant reporting of anonymous sources, leaks here, leaks there. James Comey manufacturing leaks to get a special counsel appointed….

Trump has always been the target! Nobody else. Trump remains the target! Now, how many people are out there — dangerously unbalanced on the left — who think that between now and Election Day, this gigantic October Surprise is gonna be revealed, that Mueller is gonna somehow issue a report or something’s gonna leak? Something’s gonna happen to prove that Trump colluded.

But when that is not shown to have happened, what are some of the lunatics on the left gonna do? ‘Cause you know how many people believe it, Mr. Boot? Do you know, how many people — average, ordinary Americans who get their news from your vaunted Drive-By Media. Do you know, how many people believe this and who knows how many other lies about Trump and conservatives in general have been reported…that we don’t know yet…? Like this guy who shot up the Republican baseball practice.

What set him off? His hatred for Trump! The fact that nothing was happening to Trump. The fact that Trump was getting away with it. Why? Because his media had assured him that Trump was history. When he finally figured out it wasn’t gonna happen, he lost it. There’s no way I or my conservative compatriots could come anywhere close to creating scenarios like that. Trump himself is accusing the media of stoking great anger….

Stop and think if the news media were not so blatantly associated with the destruction of one party and president. Stop and think how American day-to-day life would be different if there wasn’t any hate routinely reported as news in the Drive-By Media. That’s Trump’s point.”

To get a sense of longer-term job approval trends for the president, Rasmussen Reports compiles our tracking data on a full month-by-month basis.

Rasmussen Reports has been a pioneer in the use of automated telephone polling techniques, but many other firms still utilize their own operator-assisted technology (see methodology).

Daily tracking results are collected via telephone surveys of 500 likely voters per night and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. To reach those who have abandoned traditional landline telephones, Rasmussen Reports uses an online survey tool to interview randomly selected participants from a demographically diverse panel. The margin of sampling error for the full sample of 1,500 Likely Voters is +/- 2.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Results are also compiled on a full-week basis and crosstabs for full-week results are available for Platinum Members.”


Oct. 2018 UN IPCC report “summary” is about politics, not science, scientific document comes out later. IPCC summary presents hypothetical political choices, A and B, depending on how much “equitable society” you seek. With choice “A,” trembling media tells us, we’re all going to die, must revert to horse and buggy-No Frakking Consensus, Laframboise, 10/15/18

The [IPCC] press release insists Scenario A is strongly preferable to Scenario B. Why? Well, for one thing, Scenario A will supposedly ensure a more “equitable society.””
10/15/18, The IPCC’s Cynical Ploy,” No Frakking Consensus

“The latest IPCC report was a setup – a cynical ploy to produce alarmist media headlines that succeeded beautifully.

“Seven days ago the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued a press release along with a summary of its new Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C.

It’s important to understand that the entire project was a setup – a cynical ploy to produce alarmist media headlines that succeeded beautifully. The fact that 90+ scientific minds from 40 countries – most of them academics on the public’s [ie, US taxpayers’] dime – spent months working on this is a disgrace.

Gee, says the IPCC. We believe we know what the future will look like decades hence if the planet warms by 2 degrees Celsius. So let’s re-crunch all those highly speculative numbers and see how much better things will be if the warming stops at 1.5 degrees.

If the IPCC was a truly impartial body, its press release would have said that aiming at the lower number would be beneficial, but since everything involves tradeoffs, elected politicians should decide what makes sense rather than taking orders from scientists. After all, the world is full of problems that require resources and attention.

Instead, the press release insists Scenario A is strongly preferable to Scenario B. Why? Well, for one thing, Scenario A will supposedly ensure a more “equitable society.”

If an equitable society is part of your argument, you’re having a political discussion – not a scientific one. Surely this is bleeping obvious.

The press release begins by declaring that “rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society” are required to achieve Scenario A. The media took that statement and ran with it – which was precisely the IPCC’s intent.

Journalists didn’t spend much time explaining to the public that the report is a wholly artificial comparison of two highly hypothetical scenarios. Nor did they highlight the dismal track record associated with similar apocalyptic predictions.

For example, this no tongue-in-cheek 2004 news story includes claims that “European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas” by 2020 while Britain is “plunged into a ‘Siberian’ climate.” Now that we’re just 14 months shy of 2020, it’s evident Europe is in no such danger.

Since reporters pay no price for getting these stories wrong, they predictably hype them. CNN told us we must heed the IPCC’s advice if we want to avoid “disastrous levels” of warming.

The BBC quoted an IPCC author, Natalie Mahowald, saying “huge changes” are necessary, while IPCC official Debra Roberts opined that it’s important to put “pressure on policymakers” to respond in a certain manner.

The Guardian further quoted Roberts declaring her hope that this new report “mobilises people and dents the mood of complacency.”

Take wholly contrived subject matter. Feed the media some dramatic language. Permit your personnel to make non-neutral, anything-but-dispassionate public statements.

Yes, that’s the IPCC I’ve written two books about. That’s the IPCC we know but don’t respect.”

Another crushing blow for Global Elites: Nationalist Congressman Jair Bolsonaro wins Presidency of Brazil

10/28/18, “Brazilian Election: Nationalist Congressman Jair Bolsonaro Wins Presidency – Another Rebuke of Establishment Politics,” tcth, sundance 

“Some have called him the Brazilian Trump, a populist candidate for the presidency. His mantra: “Brazil Above Everything, God Above Everyone”. The professional political elites who rule within international circles have been throwing every attack possible at candidate Jair Bolsonaro.

Two-months-ago his left-wing political opposition stabbed him in the liver in an attempted assassination.  Bolsonaro believes in open market free-trade; Brazil-first nationalism, and protecting the integrity of the Brazillian national identity.

Today he wins the presidency. The global progressive movement is going bananas

(Via Associated Press) 7:50pm“Brazil’s Supreme Electoral Tribunal has declared far-right congressman Jair Bolsonaro the next president of Latin America’s biggest country.

With 96 percent of ballots counted, Bolsonaro has 55.5 percent of the votes. Leftist Fernando Haddad of the Workers’ Party has 44.5 percent.

Voters in Sunday’s runoff election apparently looked past warnings that the brash former army captain would erode democracy and embraced a chance for radical change after years of turmoil.

Bolsonaro went into the election the clear front-runner after getting 46 percent of the votes to Haddad’s 29 percent in the first round of the election Oct. 7.

After opinion polls in recent weeks had Bolsonaro leading by as much as 18 percentage points, the race had tightened in recent days. But Haddad was unable to make up the difference.”  (read more) 

Bolsonaro’s win today is another rebuke to the globalist system of elite central planning authority controlled by multinationals.

“Merkel with big losses in Hesse elections today. Bolsonaro about to be Brazil’s next President. Macron at historic lows. Brexit, Italy, E Europe…

Make no mistake, whatever happens Nov 6 in US, political momentum in democracies everywhere is against the establishment.

Comment: Globalist profiteers have certainly had their chance. The people want to live and breath. You wouldn’t let them. (PS. If they haven’t yet labelled Bolsonaro a “Putin stooge,” they will soon)
