Why so little coverage of the Yellow Vest protests?

Busy weekend on the drops with the overarching theme being what is being offered by the media — and what is not — to affect the narrative presented to citizens.

First case in point is the ongoing demonstrations in France with the Yellow Vests. Little coverage in the US of the thousands of people injured over the last month by police while the numbers of protestors grows. There have also been many protester deaths as a result of clashes with the police.

Cars burning near the Eiffel Tower as tens of thousands of French citizens demand changes to the socialist government policies. Why are we not seeing media coverage? Because the French protestors are asking for a halt to open border immigration and other EU initiatives, which are being pushed by unelected bureaucrats in Brussels and elsewhere.

We can hardly have the narrative playing out in the US that people globally abhor open borders while the Democrats push not fund a border wall.

Second case is the funding bill being worked on to keep the government open. The President wants roughly $6B for construction. The Democrats are hard-pressed to provide.

This really is a symbolic fight since the White House already has¬† the funding through last year’s military spending bill. No this fight is about optics and how far the liberals will take this fight. Will they close the government again over this issue?

Trump took responsibility for the first shutdown last month, however this one will be on the Senate and House liberal Democrats.

Will this lead to a split within their ranks? Perhaps as more centralist House Democrats — fearing a tough election coming up — challenge the far left with digging in their heels on this issue.

Last case is the continuing negative coverage of Q-Anon phenomenon being publicized in the media. The question posed is enlightening. If it is just a conspiracy theory, then why do hundreds of negative stories come up on a Google News search from major news outlets?

Why bother publicizing a fake moment? Why bother telling people not to look at it, if as many articles say, it is a fringe radical movement with a small following?

It falls under the line from “Hamlet” ““The lady [press] doth protest too much, methinks.”

All we want for Christmas from Santa Anon seems to be on back order

There doesn’t seem to be any gifts under the tree this year from Santa-Anon.

There was much promise for an event since Thanksgiving, but it appears that the news of something monumental occurring is on back order.

The many elves working furiously like federal attorney John Huber and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz have not finished building their FISA and Clinton Foundation investigations.

The bigger question is: Will they ever finish their probes? Or better yet, are their probes actually looking at events and people that we are told they are investigating?

Ah, but there is always a new milestone on the horizon. The Jan. 1, 2019 implementation of President Trump’s Executive Order signed in March that effective changes the prosecution of enemy combatants — whether foreign or domestic.

Well, we will just have to see.


Quick note here on the George H W Bush funeral post I put up two weeks ago. Over the last two days that post has been going through the roof with hits.

People are searching out the phrase Bush funeral envelope. Perhaps there is hope going forward with red pilling.


The best laid plans always seem to go awry.

My wife and I planned to take our kids to Washington DC over the holiday break. Well we will get to see plenty of granite and stone columns, but not what is inside due to the government shutdown.

Merry Christmas to all my readers.

Not counting on a December to remember

We have possibly an action-packed week coming up with congressional testimony from former Obama DOJ chief Loretta Lynch on Monday and ex-FBI James Comey on Tuesday.

On Wednesday US Attorney John Huber is slated to give his update to Congress on his probe into the Clinton Foundation.

Now there is plenty of speculation over the “Locked & (who is) Loaded” comment as to Lynch being ready to speak on the Obama administration’s involvement on spying on the Trump campaign and after the election. Under threat of releasing the declassified FISA documents will move Lynch to be truthful in order not to perjure herself.

I’ll reserve my enthusiasm for this since I have seen this build up before only to be disappointed by the actual event. It could be that Sunday night both or one could decline the congressional invitation to testify and let the committees deal with that in the next few days remaining in Republican-controlled House.

Shutting down the government by not passing the spending bill will just be used as a time suck to slow or stop any House inquiries will be delayed (cancelled) as lawmakers scramble to get bill passed so they can get out of Washington for holidays.

Being vigilant during December will probably have little to do with keeping up with actions and more to do with staying the course despite nothing really coming from the anticipated actions.

Maybe I’m too jaded at this point, but I would like see a boom, boom. I only need two and they can be lower case.
