an elite media

6f3084cf-61d0-4f00-9072-605904e592fa.jpgDonald Trump’s remarkable victory is a necessary tonic, a populist corrective to the arrogant misrule of the liberal establishment.  The forgotten, left-behind and betrayed Americans did the political equivalent of using a 2-by-4 to get a mule’s attention:  Sorry for the pain, but you weren’t listening.

Such is the encrusted elite’s ­addiction to power — they rarely share it and never relinquish it without a fight.  The eternal genius of democracy is that it provides a peaceful way for others to take their fair share….Both the president and his would-be successor have, while meeting with rich donors, expressed disgust with workingclass backers of their opponents.            http://nypost.com/2016/11/10/trump-win-a-necessary-tonic-against-the-arrogant-liberal-establishment/

It’s an old saw in conservative circles that Hollywood liberals — and, by extension, the cultural and coastal elite — are out of touch with mainstream America.

This unprecedented election proves, now more than ever, how true that is.  While celebrities spoke of social issues, of preserving Obama’s legacy, of the first female president, a huge swath of America voted for one reason:  rage at being left behind, economically and culturally.    http://pagesix.com/2016/11/12/why-celebrity-endorsements-didnt-help-hillary-at-all/?_ga=1.250407235.434799568.1478978827

11-12-16    In 2012 Romney won 27% of Hispanics.  In 2016 Trump won 29% of Hispanics.  Trump did better with Hispanics than Romney.

In 2012 Romney won 6% of blacks.  In 2016 Trump won 8% of blacks.  Trump did better with blacks than Romney.

In 2012 Romney lost the woman vote by 11 points.  In 2008 McCain lost women vote by 13 points.  In 2016 Trump lost the woman vote by 12 points.  Trump did better than McCain….

Think about an elite media that openly, belligerently, and with great Pompous Fanfare tossed away every journalistic ethic involving objectivity and fairness with the stated goal of destroying a single man.  And how did the media intend to do this?  Quite specifically, the coordinated goal of every headline, cable news hour, nightly newcast, blog post and tweet, was to destroy any chance Donald Trump had of becoming president by cratering his support among women, blacks and Hispanics. …

Say what you want about them but Breitbart News, InfoWars, The Daily Caller, The Federalist, World Net Daily, Michelle Malkin, Newsbusters, Hot Air, The Washington Examiner, Drudge, (truepundit.com) … they have given voters an alternative place to go, and not just for opinion but for NEWS, for actual journalism…   http://www.dailywire.com/news/10743/exit-polls-prove-national-media-was-soundly-john-nolte

Here Here!  Must also include Reddit/ the-donald, and 4chan.  Donald had a huge amount of support in the internet sub-culture.  As they say, they waged Meme War against Hillary, Especially the Donalds reddit did an amazing job of going over the wikileaks when they came out.  When I saw the internet being behind Donald, I knew this was a different ball game.

In addition there were the factors of Brexit, the Muslim terrorism, the crushing debt and loss of jobs in USA, and a myriad of other factors that mobilized voters.    -r

11-12-16   “I think that social media has more power than the money they spent, and I think maybe to a certain extent, I proved that.”      -Trump  http://www.newsmax.com/Politics/trump-social-media-election/2016/11/12/id/758575/

               Is a lightning-bolt “violent” in reality, or is the “violence” in our perception? 

Early man probably considered lightning to be the ultimate weapon or a weapon of their gods….cloud-to-ground (CG); flashes of lightning within a thunderstorm are called intra-cloud (IC).  There is roughly five to 10 times more IC than CG flashes….Lightning has a diameter of 1-2 inches (2-5 cm) and can heat air to 70,000° F (39,000° C) in a few milliseconds.  Ninety percent of the electrical energy of lightning is released in the form of heat, which is quickly dissipated into the atmosphere.  http://www.lightningsafety.com/nlsi_info/thunder2.html

If a person walks into an intense fire, is the fire violent?  Or is Life permitting and offering to itself vital lessons via its varying dances of matter and energy?  Which is more likely to be out of balance–a) basic nature and nature’s universal laws or b) an incoherent/maddened or biased person?   -r

While insisting his staff had “reported on both candidates fairly,” he also vowed that the paper would “rededicate ourselves to the fundamental mission of the NY Times journalism.  That is to report America and the world honestly, without fear or favor.”

Ah, there’s the rub.  Had the paper actually been fair to both candidates, it wouldn’t need to rededicate itself to honest reporting.  And it wouldn’t have been totally blindsided by Trump’s victory.  http://nypost.com/2016/11/11/new-york-times-we-blew-it-on-trump/
