The Progressive Left Still Clings 
To It's Myth That Ronald Reagan 
Didn't Care About AIDs

Gay activists flip off Reagan's portrait in the White House

30 years on, the Left still clings, like a child throwing a tantrum, to the myth that President Ronald Reagan made the AIDs epidemic of the 1980's worse because he didn't do enough to find a cure.  

You know who REALLY made the AIDs epidemic so deadly for gays in that decade? 

By fighting to keep San Francisco's bathhouses open & deliberately spreading misinformation about AIDs. 

Randy Shilt's describes the actions of gay activists that led to the virtual wiping out of an entire generation of gay men in the book 'And The Band Played On'.  This was the first time treatment & prevention of a fatal disease ran headlong into political correctness. And Political Correctness won.  Gay men were actually ENCOURAGED to continue engaging in risky sexual behavior while people who tried to prevent the spread of the disease were attacked, often viciously with smears. 

But what do you do when it's all over, when you realize your stupid actions encouraged people to continue engaging in the same risky behaviors that left them vulnerable to this disease?  THOUSANDS of gay people who would otherwise be alive today ended up dying because they didn't change their risky behavior because you keep telling them they didn't need to.  

Simple.  You project your responsibility for this onto someone else.  Which is what they've done to Reagan for 30 years now.  

It's all Reagan's fault! That asshole!!!!

Promiscuous gay men engaging in risky unprotected sex didn't need to change their behaviors in the 1980's. No, what was REALLY needed was for Ronald Reagan to come up with a cure for this disease and fast, and because he didn't spend enough on AIDs research or something, this caused a lot of gays to end up dying. 

This is the myth these people cling to still.  And there's more evidence against it than ever.  

Here's the real facts about Reagan and the search for an AIDs cure: 

For the record, Reagan first mentioned AIDS, in response to a question at a press conference, on Sept. 17, 1985. On Feb. 5, 1986, he made a surprise visit to the Department of Health and Human Services where he said, “One of our highest public health priorities is going to be continuing to find a cure for AIDS.” He also announced that he’d tasked Surgeon General C. Everett Koop to prepare a major report on the disease. Contrary to the prevailing wisdom, Reagan dragged Koop into AIDS policy, not the other way around.
As for Waxman’s recollections about AIDS funding, he does an unusual thing for a politician: He’s forgotten the success he and other Democrats had in convincing Reagan to spend more money. The administration increased AIDS funding requests from $8 million in 1982 to $26.5 million in 1983, which Congress bumped to $44 million, a number that doubled every year thereafter during Reagan’s presidency.
Finally, the claim that Reagan spoke about AIDS sufferers with “disdain” is simply a smear. Nothing like that ever happened, except maybe in the fictional “The Reagans” miniseries in which Barbra Streisand’s husband played Reagan as a bigot and rube.
Projection and psychological displacement explain why the people most responsible for the gay holocaust of the 1980's so vociferously attacked and vilified Ronald Reagan.  Like every group they appear to champion, Progressives actually end up harming it, then need to find a scapegoat to project the failure onto.  

When it comes to the AIDs crisis of the 1980's, Reagan is their scapegoat.  They really shouldn't be allowed to get away with this any longer.

The Latest NYT's Rubio Hit Piece Blows Up In Their Faces

But You Know They'll Keep Trying!

So today the New York Times tried to launch a new narrative about Marco Rubio.  

The Unbearable Shame Of Marco Rubio's Financial Struggles

OK I might have played around with the headline there. 

Hey, you know who else struggles with their finances a lot? Ordinary Americans, that's who. Especially in Obama's America.  

But the new narrative for this upcoming 2016 election is that people who aren't rich and elite and who actually have to struggle with their finances aren't fit to be President. 

At a time when the top of our political landscape is rife with people who are multimillionaires many many times over, it's supposed to be troubling to encounter a politician who actually struggles to make ends meet on a modest income.  

If you're wondering why the DNC Media is suddenly trying to make Marco Rubio's financial struggles a campaign issue, allow me to explain it for you. 

To get an incompetent, lying Obama reelected vs. a competent, accomplished problem solver like Mitt Romney the Democrats and the DNC Media made the 2012 election about one issue: EMPATHY. 

They needed the low info voters who decide elections to buy into the narrative that Obama should be reelected because he CARED more about ordinary Americans, unlike that elitist, rich, Otherized guy, the corporate shark Romney.  

Well Democrats & the DNC Media have a hard sell with the low info voters when it comes to this 2016 election.  While Obama could run as a Rorschach blot candidate, inviting people to project their desires upon him because he was relatively new to Washington, Hillary Clinton can't do that.  She's not new. She's well defined and is a known quantity, having been in the public eye since the late 1980's.  

Accordingly, the Democrats & their DNC Media are having to shift the gears dramatically from OBAMA CARES SO VERY VERY MUCH ABOUT CHOO! to OF COURSE HILLARY IS TOO ELITE TO CARE ABOUT CHOO AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT IN A PRESIDENT! 

Now that's a tough sell, but that's what they're stuck with.  She's gotten fantastically wealthy off of that pay-for-play fake charity that was a front for a bribery & protection racket and she's been in Washington as part of the inside-the-Beltway royalty since the early 1990's. 

So trying to recast her as a Washington outsider who's got her finger on the pulse of the common folk is out for this election.  

What they are forced to do is to make a 180 degree turn and now sell the low info voters on the idea that our leaders MUST come from an elite political class that is extremely wealthy and lives completely different lives from that of ordinary Americans.  

People in this elite political class just have this special 'something', and Hillary's got it in spades, people!  And of course, the converse to this, which is what the NYT's new narrative is all about, is that whatever 'it' is, Rubio ain't got 'it'.  

Rubio, Walker, Perry, Jindal, most of this GOP field most manifestly does not come from the nation's elite monied and politically connected class.  Recognizing the backgrounds of the candidates, the Democrats are attempting to turn the 2016 campaign into the opposite of the 2012 one. 

Being too close to the common people is now going to be a bad thing, you see.  It's actually a good thing that Hillary Clinton has lived a sheltered, pampered elitist life because that's helped prepare her for the rigors of the White House! 

Meanwhile, we're going to get countless stories that presume to prove that members of the GOP field just aren't elite enough, aren't special enough to be President.  

Now, that's what they're going to TRY  to do. That's the sell they're going to attempt to make.  Thus far, they are doing comically bad at it.  

How bad?  

Look at this line from the NYT's story today: 
Earlier today Dylan Byers tracked down a picture of what Rubio's 'luxury speedboat' looks like: 

Blake Hounshell also weighed in: 
After getting a $800,000 advance for a book, Rubio paid off all his debts and then used $80,000 of the money to buy himself a fishing boat.  This, according to the NYT's, demonstrates that Rubio has a 'problem' with managing his money.  

I can't wait for the debate moment when the woman who raked millions while running a fake charity as a cover for pay-for-play bribery racket demands this commoner upstart explain his purchase of that $80,000 'luxury speedboat' with his own money. 

If the Democrats want to make finances an issue, well fine, let's go there.  

The State Department lost $6 billion of the taxpayers money while Clinton was in charge of it.  And just recently it was disclosed that the Clinton Foundation gave less than 10% of the hundreds of millions it raked in to charity.  All the rest of it went for salaries, travel and 'other expenses'.  In fact, more than $250 million donated dollars is chalked up to that 'other expenses' category.  Hillary doesn't want to spell out where that money went.  
Chart via The Federalist

They want to make financial comparisons between our candidates and theirs? Fine with me. Rubio bought himself a nice boat for $80,000 after paying off his debts.  Hillary just dropped a cool $10.5 million on a luxury apartment for her daughter as a wedding gift. 
I'm aware all the news stories make it a point to claim 'Chelsea Clinton' is buying this luxury apartment for $10.5 million bucks.  I'm also aware of where that money really came from, thank you very much.

Selling an elite, super wealthy, out of touch, and increasingly frail Hillary Clinton is going to be a super tough job.  And thus far, they are really, really sucking at it.

New York Times & ABC News Are Demonstrating DNC Media's 
New Strategy

Caught Red Handed In An Ethical Lapse By New Media? No Problem! Run To Politico

This is THREE TIMES in the past 2 weeks DNC Media caught in an ethical lapse by New Media reporters have refused comment on the story while running to a friendly outlet to try to do a controlled explosion. 

First, ABC News stiff armed the Washgington Free Beacon's request for comment about George Stephanoupoulos's failure to disclose his donations to the Clinton Foundation by running to Politico to break the story themselves in a more favorable light. 

"That was a real low blow there, George."

Then two days ago the New York Times refused to comment when a Free Beacon reporter asked about it's Rubio Traffic Ticket 'scoop', as to whether that story was shopped to the NYT's by David Brock's Hillary PAC, American Bridge. Instead the NYT's followed ABC New's example and tried a controlled release of this info at Politico. 

17 traffic tickets between them. Oh hey, that means Bill & Hillary share a disbarment & impeachment! Yes, let's play that game!

And now it's happened a third time. 

Hillary Clinton & NYT's Both Fail To Disclose $100,000 Donation

"No one will ever know the NYT's endorsed me after I gave their charity $100k! Muwahhahaha!"

THIS is their new strategy for fighting the New Media, folks.  This is no longer a bug, it is now a feature.  

The biggest job of the New Media, as Andrew Breitbart tirelessly taught, is to hold the Old DNC Media accountable, to expose their lies, their bias and their deceptions.  

Now that New Media has gotten better than ever at doing it's job of holding the DNC Media accountable, the Democratic Party operatives embedded in the DNC Media who have disguised themselves as journalists have hit on a new strategy for dealing with this.  

New Media is engaging in journalistic integrity when it tips it's hand on a story it's working on by asking a DNC Media entity caught in an ethical problem for comment.  You know who's not practicing journalistic integrity? 

 The DNC Media groups who say 'no comment' to the New Media reporters and then speed dials Dylan Byers & Co. at Politico to shop the story to a friendly outlet where they can try a positive spin. 

Byers is already digging in his heels as being unwillingly designated as the DNC Media Story Shopping Go-To Guy, so look for them to try to find a more willing accomplice soon.  But the STRATEGY for dealing with these cases is now set, and you can fully expect to see the DNC  Media engaging in it as they try to drag Hillary over the finish line and into the White House in 2016.

Americans Trying To Escape From Yemen Are Told They Are On Their Own & To Contact Foreign Governments For Help

America Is No Longer There For Americans Abroad.  And The Whole World Knows It.

The Washington Free Beacon has the story. Read it at the link to believe it: 

US Gov't To Americans Trapped In Yemen: Call India

Somehow the Chinese, the Russians, the Canadians, the Indians, they're all able to get in there and get their people out.  But for some reason we can't? 

This was the biggest news to hit the wires yesterday and yet it barely caused a ripple. America has abandoned Americans trapped in Yemen.  

If the American Government will no longer guarantee the safety and security of Americans abroad, what good is it? 

Two months ago, after weeks of being aware such a situation might arise, our Marines and diplomatic personnel in Yemen had to leave Yemen.  Their successful exit depended upon two things; 

1)  The rebels who had just seized control of the country being willing to LET them go, and
2) their being able to catch a commercial flight

I am not joking.  I am not making that up.  That. Actually. Happened. 

The reason our Marines & diplomatic personnel were abandoned two months ago is the same reason these Americans still in Yemen are being abandoned now. Obama refuses to risk a situation in which the US military could end up in conflict with the Iranian-back Houthis now in control of Yemen.  It's all about saving his precious nuclear deal with Iran. 

Any situation that could derail the deal is to be avoided, even if it places American lives at risk.  And don't kid yourself. Americans are in danger here.  Every damn terrorist group in the region is very likely making a beeline for Yemen to see how many Americans they can grab. 

Add to this the fact it's well known this administration made no real attempt to obtain the release of four Americans currently being held by Iran as part of this nuclear deal Obama's so keen to make. 

This is a national disgrace.  This is a dereliction of duty.  Every American has a duty to speak up and demand this government do it's god-damned job.

Why The Mainstream Media Needs To Be Abandoned To The Wilderness Like The Israelites Of Old

Since The Old Media Shows No Willingness To Abandon Narrative Journalism, It's Time To Burn It All Down & Rebuild On The Ashes With A Younger Generation

If you've ever seen the film The Ten Commandments, you know how the story of Moses leading the Israelites out of Egypt begins. Here's how it ended: that entire generation that left Egypt was not allowed to enter the Promised Land that God had promised to them.

 They were so rebellious and stubborn in their refusal to obey and trust Him that God swore not a single one of them would enter the Land.  For that reason the Israelites were left to wander in the wilderness for forty years, until the last person of that entire generation had died.  Their children entered the Land, but they did not. 

Americans are increasingly realizing the time has come to abandon the Mainstream Media to the wilderness, until it has died off to the very last one.  Recent events have proven that the optimists who expected the Old Media to change it's course through a series of recent scandals were simply being naive. 

Rolling Stone magazine's decision to continue business as usual in the wake of the exposure of the UVA Rape Hoax is just the latest example in Old Media's Long March Into The Wilderness.  

By the way, the UVA Rape Hoax wasn't the only example of fake narrative journalism in the news this week.  An incident at Duke University made national headlines when students found a noose hanging from a tree on the campus.  

The perpetrator was quickly found, a confession obtained and then....nothing.  The fact Duke University is scrupulously hiding the student's name and race tells us a lot.  Let's see a show of hands: Who believes if the noose-hanger was a white frat boy, we wouldn't already have his name and face plastered all over the DNC Media from sea-to-shining-sea? 

Instead we are told the student's race is being withheld due to 'privacy concerns'.  
The swift discovery of the person who hung a noose at Duke University leaves questions ranging from the student's identity to what punishment the person will face.

The university has begun disciplinary proceedings that could result in suspension or expulsion, while federal and state law enforcement officials are investigating whether the action constitutes a crime.
The university identified the person after several fellow students came forward with information, and the undergraduate student admitted to hanging the noose from a tree at a plaza in the heart of campus, university spokesman Michael Schoenfeld said Thursday.
Schoenfeld said the student has left campus but is still enrolled. He declined to describe the culprit's gender, race or whether the student had been in trouble in the past, citing privacy laws.
Of course, this week at Duke, everybody pretended they didn't know it's a hoax.   The same Kabuki Theater must play out to the end. Every. Single. Time. 

Take this editorial from yesterday at the Winston-Salem Journal
It’s hard to know what to make of the brightly-colored noose found hanging prominently outside the main student center at Duke University, except that it’s sad, it’s angering, it’s baffling and it’s wrong. But campus officials, including Duke President Richard Brodhead, handled the incident the right way, condemning the act and calling for conversation.

The noose, made with thin yellow rope, was discovered by students around 2 a.m. Wednesday in the Bryan Center Plaza, the McClatchy Tribune news service reported. Photographs of it began spreading on social media almost immediately. Campus police and school officials quickly launched an investigation.

By early afternoon Wednesday, Brodhead was speaking to a crowd of roughly 1,000 students who had marched to the plaza.

“One person put up that noose,” he said, “but this is the multitude of people who got together to say, ‘That’s not the Duke we want, that’s not the Duke we’re here for, and that’s not the Duke we’re here to create.’”

Duke Provost Sally Kornbluth also spoke, encouraging faculty to talk about racism in class.

“You have black students in your classrooms; you need to understand what they’re feeling,” she said. “You need to think about your roles as mentors, as teachers, as role models. We all need to be together in setting up a safe space.”

The school administrators’ quick response, and their commitment to following up after the incident, is what was called for.
And there you have it. The student accomplished his mission by hanging the noose and everybody knows it.  Fake hate crimes on campus are now happening so often they are a virtual cottage industry, as Ann Coulter details in her book 'Mugged', in which she details a long list of academics & students on American college campuses trying to 'start a conversation' by faking a hate crime.  

The DNC Media isn't looking to give it's audience the truth. It's constantly seeking to push stories that will advance Progressive causes by 'tailoring' stories to fit their agenda. In their world, America is a racist, misogynist, backwards country that needs deep, systemic transformation.  So they are constantly on the lookout for stories they can take national to 'prove' the systemic & endemic racism and misogyny.  

They are quite simply never going to change. To change would mean to drastically alter their basic nature.  Narrative journalism in which you promote false stories to advance Progressive causes is WHY too many of these reporters got into the news business in the first place. They are simply not willing to give that up.  

In the past three years with the Sanford, Florida narrative, then the Ferguson, Missouri narrative, and now the UVA rape hoax, the DNC Media has been caught promoting falsehoods to sell an agenda.  

"Every single cause championed by liberals is based on a fake story." - Ann Coulter

"We used to hate hoaxes, but now they raise awareness!" - Greg Gutfeld

First of all, get this truth firmly in your heads:  they don't CARE about their ratings.   They are on a mission.  I wrote about that here: 

No matter how low their viewership gets, how bad the circulation of their newspapers are, there will be no course correction.  I wrote this two years ago, and subsequent events have proven the words more true than ever:

For MSNBC & other Progressive media to respond to market forces would be for them to cease being the elite opinion makers & policy shapers they view themselves to be. The big corporations that own ABC, NBC, CBS & CNN as well as MSNBC are in the hands of people like Jeffrey Immelt, who love viewing themselves as shapers of public perception so much they’re willing to literally bleed billions of dollars in potential profits.

They value their role as the elite class ‘educating’ and ‘guiding’ the country more than they do their bottom line. 
That’s why no matter how low MSNBC’s ratings go, or how bad the NYT’s circulation gets, the people in charge will keep right on doing what they’ve been doing. They fully believe their Liberal message is more important than the money. This won’t change until the ownership does.
You will note these same Progressive news outlets will mock Fox News & Conservative media for ‘pandering’ to ‘Middle America’ by ‘giving the public the ‘lowbrow stuff it wants’. They explain away the much better ratings of the New Media by claiming there’s no attempt to ‘educate’ or ‘improve’ the public but instead to just pander to them in their ‘current low state of mind’.
Most people can tell when they are getting neutral news & when they are getting propagandized. They know when a journalist is showing them both sides of an issue of public interest & when an elite snob is preaching down at them.
There's only one answer as to what to do with a Mainstream Media that won't abandon it's narrative journalism.  Burn it all down and build a New Media on it's ashes.  Train up a younger generation of journalists & reporters that never committed to the Noble Cause of Narrative Journalism in the first place.  Young people who care about the truth, getting the story right the FIRST TIME, about telling BOTH sides of the story, and who will practice journalistic ethics.  

Because the old dogs won't change their tricks, America needs to go get itself some young puppies and teach them the proper way to do the job. 

The good news is, the Old Media is ALREADY in the Wilderness.   They've put themselves there by their own behavior, and they know it.  All we have to do is drive them further into it, until they have all died out.  In the meanwhile, Americans can build up a New Media that will do the job the Old Media refused to do:  tell the truth.

The Health Care Plan 
Nobody Could See

"You actually want to *read* my 1,364 page health care reform plan? Why?!"

Hey, Remember When Hillary Put Together A Secret Task Force To Reform Health Care & Then Went To Court To Hide The Details From The Public? 

Washington Examiner political reporter Byron York does!  
In 1993, the newly-inaugurated President Bill Clinton chose his wife to head his administration's most important domestic initiative, health care reform. Hillary Clinton proceeded to create a task force that seemed more determined to keep secrets than to restructure health care.
"The culture of secrecy is such that the White House refuses to provide a full list of consultants brought in to aid in the effort," the New York Times reported in February, 1993, just after the first lady got started. Clinton later went to court rather than reveal the most basic details of the effort. Story after story about her work used phrases like "wall of secrecy" and "shrouded in secrecy" and "frantic, secretive process." 
When the task force collapsed in defeat, columnist Maureen Dowd wrote that "it was the first lady's secrecy and righteousness in trying to push through her 1,364-page bill that doomed the effort."
By the end of the Clintons' first year in Washington, the new White House became ensnared in the first of the scandals that would last through Bill Clinton's presidency. Hillary Clinton was deeply involved, sometimes in the original offense, like Travelgate, and sometimes in the legal and political pushback, like the Lewinsky scandal. The Clinton trademark was withholding information from investigators.
It was only after intense public pressure that the Clinton White House reluctantly released the names of the people on the Health Care Panel crafting the reform legislation:

Ending It's Secrecy, White House Lists Health-Care Panel 
After much criticism of the secrecy surrounding the work of his health policy team, President Clinton today abandoned his effort to conceal the names of more than 500 people who are developing his proposal to guarantee health insurance coverage for all Americans.
After finding out who was crafting the new health care reform, the next step was to find out what was in the plan itself. But the Clintons refused to release even the most basic details. 

 In an attempt to actually force the Clinton White House into transparency on the public policy it was making, the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons [AAPS] filed a lawsuit based on the Federal Advisory Committee Act [FACA].  

And thus did Hillary Clinton go to court to prevent disclosure of the facts about the new health care reform effort she was leading.  

Incidentally, the Federal court narrowly ruled in Clinton's favor, that she was a government official, even though nobody had elected her to any kind of office.  So the details of the health care reform she was making could remain secret. 

Yes. Really. That actually happened: 

"Court Rules First Lady Is 'De Facto' Government Official"
"The court found I'm a de facto government official. 
So I don't have to show the public my health care plan." 

At this stage of her career, we are learning absolutely nothing new about Hillary Clinton. She has always been a secretive, transparency-dodging control freak.  

She's right at home on the Progressive Left, which never openly declares what it is it's trying to do.  

The Progressive movement truly does believe Americans are stupid children that need to be lied to, tricked or coerced into doing what they want them to do.  Elites run from transparency because actually informing the public what they're up to and what they're planning for the rest of us just gets in the way of all the 'progress' they want to achieve.  They don't tell you because they truly believe you don't need to know.
