Video: John Bolton Calls NY Times Benghazi Report ‘An Editorial Opinion Piece Masquerading as Journalism’

John Bolton was invited on Fox News, Sunday, to respond to the NY Times’ “bombshell” Benghazi report which purports that there was no al Qaeda connection to the attack – which was largely spurred on by the fabled YouTube video. The ‘Stache’s reaction to the report was derisive laughter at first. And then came the scathing rebuke.

“Look, this is not journalism – this is an editorial opinion piece masquerading as journalism, Bolton declared. “I thought it was both unsophisticated, and internally contradictory.”

Does The GOP Have A Strategy To Combat the Mediacracy in 2016?

As  should be obvious, the NY Times’s revisionist “bombshell” on Benghazi, is a preview of the Benghazi cover story the MSM will mount in defense of Hillary for the next couple of years. The question is – will the American public fall for it? Will the alternative media and more importantly – the GOP – be able to combat what Daniel Greenfield calls the “mediacracy”?

Media bias was over decades ago. The media isn’t biased anymore, it’s a player, its goal is turn its Fourth Estate into a fourth branch of government, the one that squats below the three branches and blocks their access to the people and blocks the people’s access to them. Under the Mediacracy there will still be elections, they will even be mostly free, they just won’t matter so long as its upper ranks determine the dialogue on both sides of the media wall.
The Mediacracy isn’t playing for peanuts anymore. It’s not out to skew a few stories, it’s out to take control of the country. In military empires, the military can act as a Praetorian Guard. In political empires, it’s the people who control the political conversation who also control the succession.

In 2008, the Mediacracy elevated an Illinois State Senator who had briefly showed up in the Federal Senate to the highest office in the land. They did it even though he had no skills for the job and no serious plan for fixing any of the country’s problems. They did it to show that they could. They did it because they wanted to tell a compelling story and inflict radical change on a country that would have never voted for it, if it had not been lied and guilted into making the single worst decision in its entire history.

The mediacracy’s preferred candidate for 2016 is Hillary Clinton, a woman who rose to prominence on her impeached and disbarred corruptocrat husband’s coattails. Her tenure as Secretary of State is notable for two things – She is the most traveled Sec. of State in US history, and she presided over a four-year string of diplomatic disasters. But the coronation of Queen Hillary began almost immediately after she stepped down. ABC has dubbed 2013, “the year everyone gave Hillary Clinton an award” because she has been showered with at least 19 awards, already.

Republicans better get ready. The mediacracy is not about to turn over any leaves after the disaster of the Obama presidency. And neither is Hillary. And demographics are increasingly – not in our favor. The GOP needs to be wargaming right now on how to deal with this situation, but unfortunately, it looks like  their strategy for 2016 is geared more toward weeding out tea party favorites than dealing with the two candidates who most deserve their attention –  Hillary Clinton and the Mediacracy.

Clear and Present Danger: Religious Persecution In The US Military (Video)

It’s come to this – In the America we live in today, our soldiers are reduced to hiding in the shadows and disguising their voices in order to tell the story of religious persecution in the military.

“There is a tremendous culture of intimidation and fear in the ranks of the United States Military, right now”, one soldier said.  “I think in particular, Christian religious freedom, has been a target.”

Your Sunday Hymn: What Child Is This?

For Feast of the Holy Family:

Gospel, Matthew 2:13-15, 19-23

13 After they had left, suddenly the angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, ‘Get up, take the child and his mother with you, and escape into Egypt, and stay there until I tell you, because Herod intends to search for the child and do away with him.’

14 So Joseph got up and, taking the child and his mother with him, left that night for Egypt,

15 where he stayed until Herod was dead. This was to fulfil what the Lord had spoken through the prophet: I called my son out of Egypt.

19 After Herod’s death, suddenly the angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt

20 and said, ‘Get up, take the child and his mother with you and go back to the land of Israel, for those who wanted to kill the child are dead.’

21 So Joseph got up and, taking the child and his mother with him, went back to the land of Israel.

22 But when he learnt that Archelaus had succeeded his father Herod as ruler of Judaea he was afraid to go there, and being warned in a dream he withdrew to the region of Galilee.

23 There he settled in a town called Nazareth. In this way the words spoken through the prophets were to be fulfilled: He will be called a Nazarene.
