Blogs and Ends

I've been wasting my time trying to fisk an article from Vice entitled.  Why Can't My Famous Gender Nonconforming Friends Get Laid?

I am admitting defeat.  I can't do it, the subject is too pathetic for me to make fun of.  I felt like I was trying to humiliate the mentally ill.  Because frankly I was.

Basic thrust of the article is that these two guys:

Hi I'm Alok!
Hi I'm Jacob
are upset because straight boys don't want to have sex with them.

There's a reason for that.

I suppose the part that I found most impressive was their sense of entitlement.  These can't even call them trannys.  Trannys at least shave.  I suppose I could use their own terminology but they are already demanding that everyone believe that the voices in their heads are real.  Damned if I'm getting on that crazy train. 

These two...whatever they are...are demanding the right to be found sexually attractive by straight men because they are...wait for it...YouTube Famous.

It doesn't work that way.


CNN is starting to look like a coke fueled party bus rocketing for the edge of the Grand Canyon with an anvil on the accelerator and no one at all at the wheel.  

When they started out, a 24 hour news network was a great idea.  After all there was no internet back then. It was either read a news paper or wait for one of the network evening news shows.  CNN provided a quick catch up when it was convenient for you.

Mind you their standards were pretty poor back then too. The anchors stumbled over their lines constantly and the production values were as cheap as they were shambolic.  Still, you didn't have to wait for 6:30 that was good enough to put it on top...for a while.

CNN has always had a standard Lefty journalist slant. They pretended to be impartial and clearly weren't.  But they at least bothered with the pretense.  

Now they have committed themselves so thoroughly to the destruction of an American President, that they can no longer be called a news service.  CNN is now nothing but a propaganda organ.  I honestly trust TASS more than I do CNN at this point.

I chose this bit from Rolling Stone because the butt hurt is delectable.

Early in his presidency, Trump described the press as a kind of villainous monolith in the rolling WWE act that is his presidency – a blackguard he called "The opposition party."

Thanks to the latest seismic catastrophe to rock the news business, Trump's vision looks like reality. The blow came when CNN bollocked up a Trump-Russia expose so badly that its factual problems could be exposed by the likes of Breitbart and Sputnik.

The network, relying on a single anonymous source, reported that Senate investigators were examining the behavior of a close Trump adviser, former Goldman executive Anthony Scaramucci. Scaramucci was supposedly suspected of holding a secret meeting with a Russian investment fund, with the aim perhaps of discussing the removal of sanctions.

Scaramucci denied the story to CNN, saying only that he ran into a Russian official at Davos: "He came over to say hello in a restaurant, and I was cordial."

When challenged on this and other points by the loathsome Breitbart as well as the Russian-funded Sputnik, CNN, in a move that pain-wise must have been comparable to passing a string of gallstones, said it couldn't stand by its reporting. The network issued a retraction and an apology to Scaramucci, and three reporters, including a recent Pulitzer Winner, resigned. Trumpcore social media exploded in glee: #CNNIsFakeNews is still trending.

The episode came after another one in which four CNN reporters mistakenly reported that James Comey was expected in Senate testimony to dispute Donald Trump's account that he was not a target of an FBI investigation. CNN was forced to issue a retraction after Comey testified and the opposite turned out to be true.

Even worse, the villainous Project Veritas – the bête noire of right-wing gotcha journalism, whose James O'Keefe makes the late Andrew Breitbart seem like Edward R. Murrow – succeeded all of this with a CNN-targeted prank that turned out to be darkly related.

CNN has confirmed the veracity of a tape showing hidden-camera conversations between an O'Keefe plant and a producer from the network's medical coverage unit.

In it, CNN producer John Bonifield says the network has been focusing on the Russia story "because it's ratings." In another sequence, he explains that "Trump is good for business right now," and that higher-ups were ordered to return to the story after spending too long – a day and a half – covering the Paris accords.

After this nightmare hit the Internet, Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders – after kicking off a presser with a softball from Breitbart, whose former chief Steve Bannon is of course a key Trump adviser – recommended that America watch the sting video. "I would encourage everyone in this room, and, frankly, everyone across the country, to take a look at it," she said.

She then launched into a tirade against what she called a "constant barrage of fake news." This inspired Brian Karem, the editor of the Montgomery County Sentinel, to stand up and deliver a broadside against the Trump administration.

"What you just did is inflammatory to people all over the country," Karem said. "[People] look at it and say, 'See, once again, the president's right, and everybody else out here is fake media.'"

Karem drifted a little off message there. All media is fake. Fake News is the meme that hurts. They know they are betraying a basic principle in their furious slandering of President Trump.  But they just can't stop themselves from doing it. 


There is a new rasstler in town and he goes by the  name of The Liberal Progressive.

The details really make the gimmick, and they’re not as obvious as the “Not My President” shirt. It’s the way the Progressive Liberal says “Appalachia,” pronouncing the third syllable with a hard A as in “ate,” instead of the flat A preferred by locals. The audience immediately understands that he’s not from here. Richards was originally billed out of Richmond, Virginia, his actual hometown. But he and James realized that when performing in Kentucky, which has a Richmond of its own, the crowd would become confused. So his origin became Washington, D.C.

Life is hard on the indy wrestling circuit but who knows? Maybe he is destined for bigger things.

He's got a great gimmick.

On a happy note from the crazy not trannies article if Hollywood decides to remake The Silence of the Lambs they've got their buffalo bill.

CNN actually had a right wing slant at the beginning which helped it get established. Only after Turner was turned down after trying to buy CBS for being too "right wing" did he switch the POV of the networks 180 degrees.
