Reality takes a hike when Trump haters gather

From time to time SRAZ has posted, “Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter.” With the retirement of brilliant conservative Thomas Sowell, such worthy columns are more difficult to find.

Yet as much as we enjoy reading columnists with whom we agree, it’s crucial to be aware of what  those passing themselves off as conservatives attempt to misrepresent as factual.

Today we are veering off into the incomprehensible mindset of New York Times columnist David Brooks, who appeared Friday on ‘PBS NewsHour’ with Judy Woodruff and Mark Shields. Woodruff was recently honored at a soiree in Phoenix where she was presented with the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism, given annually by Arizona State University. In her acceptance speech, Woodruff issued an assurance that “journalists are not the enemy.”

That bit of information should prepare you for what comes next —  David Brooks: This Was The Week Steve Bannon Really Took Control Of The Republican Party, posted on Real Clear Politics.

RINOs, such as Arizona’s two now irrelevant senators and leftists have joined at the hip in portraying highly accomplished Bannon as evil incarnate.  His wrongdoing?  Bringing Donald Trump to the forefront of the GOP primary lineup of 17 candidates and across the finish line as the campaign’s chief executive. After Trump was elected president, Bannon was appointed White House Chief Strategist before returning to Breitbart News as executive chairman.

David Brooks’ New York Times op-ed, The Week Trump won, opens with references to Lenin, Trotsky “and the rest of the Bolsheviks” taking over Russia.  Guess who he views as the present day disastrous political extremists?

    David Brooks portrays himself as a conservative when he is clearly no such thing. He exemplifies all that is wrong with the media today as they cunningly attempt to sway public opinion. The election of Donald Trump is emblematic of the American people having had their fill of liberalism. As tough as 8 years of Obama was to take, Americans flocked to the polls and showed they’d had enough.

    Pres. Trump is a businessman, not a slick politician. When he speaks, he doesn’t sound Reaganesque, but he is fulfilling the promises he made as a candidate which suits me fine. What actually rankles me is the fact that the GOP majorities in the US House and Senate are stonewalling him. Petty and envious McCain delights in denying Trump his objectives. He’s actually denying Americans what we voted for, but that isn’t a concern to the senile and sick old man who wants only to get his licks in.

    I wonder how many parents sending their kids to ASU’s Cronkite School of Journalism realize the radically left wing extremist Walter Cronkite actually was.
    Declaring “World government is the structure necessary for global justice,” Walter Cronkite called it “a necessity to give up our sovereignty, and yield to World Government” as he advocated for “permanent international courts.” Hillary congratulated him on his views. Mocking Rev. Pat Robertson, Cronkite said “he was glad to be sitting at the right hand of Satan.”
    This video is a stunning reveal to those who benignly thought of him as “Uncle Walter” as he delivered the news each evening. Americans were being very slyly propagandized.

    Not to mention he lied about Viet Nam. How many suffered and died from that lie? And, journalists are the enemy because they do not report the truth.

    Although I would Love It if Steve Bannon really took control of the Republican Party, he has no desire to do so.

    Rather, he is like a good parent from yesteryear.
    You remember—the parent who paid attention to what you were up to and who you hung out with. The parent who would hold you accountable and only tolerate just so much misbehavior before you got redirected to your room to reflect on your errors.

    Congress has become an assembly of a-holes,brats, bullies, delinquents, and senior citizens who have reverted to throwing temper tantrums like two year old children.

      Even the so-called Republicans are impediments to getting anything accomplished under President Trump. What really galls me is the fact that no one in our GOP congressional delegation opens their mouths to hold people like McCain and Flake accountable. And the Arizona Republican Party chairman Jonathan Lines sends out email messages saying how great Flake is and giving McCain accolades. I received a solicitation call for a donation to the party this past week. Needless to say, I gave a big fat ZERO and told the caller why. I hope others are doing the same.

      • Conservative Since Birth says:

        I, too, received a call and vented about McCain and Flake and she said “I hear you – I feel the same way.” Then she said, well rather than 75 (dollars), would you give 50? I said definitely not to a party that won’t get behind the president. Then she switched into high gear and said “well, we use the money to educate young people to make the party better” or some such jibberish and I said “no – thanks for calling.”

    Speaking of reality taking a hike:

    You might want to check out the Twitter account of
    Reinhold Niebuhr, who in reality in James Comey.

    Tweets over the last few weeks contain photos and cryptic messages showing that he is on the move. Upstate NY; Gettysburg, Pa., various locations in Iowa.

    Now comes a message and photo showing pelicans.

    Reference to The Pelican Brief?

    Comey is dangerously creepy. Look up Reinhold Niebuhr and see what you find.

    He started this Tweet fest about the time that the Fed Grand Jury must have been hearing testimony.
    He’s on speed dial with the Clintons and Mueller, at the very least.

  6. Conservative Since Birth says:

    David Brooks must live in his parents’ basement and not have a clue about what’s really going on in America. Talk about snowflakes, girly men, beta males – he’s all of that. Only the NYTimes would call him a Republican or conservative or whatever the scam is they’re perpetrating. The POTUS is waaay more in tune with real people, Republicans, conservatives, independents and some Democrats than David Brooks will ever be.

    Washington Free Beacon: The publication is largely funded by hedge fund billionaire Paul Singer, who strongly supports gay rights and open borders. Among its original board members were Bill Kristol, and both the present editors, Michael Goldfarb (formerly deputy communications director for John McCain) and Matthew Continetti (Kristol’s son-in-law) both worked for the Weekly Standard while
