How Marine Le Pen played the media

Needull in a haystack

Marine Le Pen celebrates at a Front National rally after the presidential election first round

With French elections round the corner, Marine Le Pen has become one of the most talked about politicians. This longread looks at how she has played the media to her advantage.

All politics is storytelling, and all responsible political journalism attempts to account for this, or at least make it plain. Le Pen and her party have long sought to tell a story about the media themselves. This places the journalist in the difficult position of being at once subject and object: they can no longer perform their duties from behind the comfortable myth of neutrality; they are called to speak about themselves, account for their work. And if they are honest, they will be obliged to acknowledge the possibility of contradictions and flaws. Le Pen has intuited this weakness, and understands how to exploit it. If she cannot have what she wants from the media, then, she knows she…

Mattis Just Scared Kim Jong Un TO DEATH with These 5 Words!

Once Barack Obama was escorted from the confines of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Donald Trump assumed the U.S. Presidency and with it brought his generals who have sent the very clear message.

The wimp is gone, mess with the United States of America and you will pay dearly, likely with your lives.

Trump along with most rational Americans is sick and tired of America and the office of the U.S. Presidency being considered rudderless and a complete laughing stock to the world, including her allies.

When it comes to keeping the US safe, Secretary of Defense James Mattis is NOT messing around.

For years we have sat by and let North Korea threaten us.

Those days are over!

Yesterday Mattis met with his British counterpart, Michael Fallon.

Judge Blocks Trump Order on Sanctuary City Funding

The Ninth District Court of Appeals is the whose rulings are most frequently overturned by the United States Supreme Court. (Source)

It is made up of far left-wing progressives, socialists, Marxists and likely a communist or two sprinkled in with the group.

The share one commonality, they rarely follow the U.S. Constitution and adjudicate from the bench.

They can rule as they wish on the funding for sanctuary cities, but watch the United States Congress who makes the law while the House of Representatives funds it, make no funds available.

In one of their more brilliant decisions, they overturned the right of the individual to carry a concealed weapon after the individual was issued a permit. (Source)

A federal judge in San Francisco has blocked a Trump administration order to withhold funding from communities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities.

Under the Cover of Darkness and Protected by Snipers, New Orleans Begins Erasing Its History

The left has more often than not been known as the party that wrote revisionist history.

First, there was destroying the Confederate flag, now we turn to this disgusting event.

NOW, In the wee hours of Monday morning, a day celebrated as Confederate Memorial Day in other southern states, workers dressed in black vests and wearing pieces of cloth to cover their faces removed a monument in New Orleans.

The removal began just before 1:30 a.m. Eastern, after a small group of protesters, departed from the monument and a wave of officers with the New Orleans Police Department barricaded points of entry to the monument, The Times-Picayune reported.

Is it time for those in the south who hold their heritage dear to start taking out the liberal members of their legislatures who allowed their plan to go forward?

New Orleans is a lost city much the same as San Francisco.

Another challenge: San Francisco sued Trump over moves to keep federal cash from cities which refuse to cooperate with immigration authorities. Judge William Orrick, an Obama-era appointee, has temporarily blocked the measureAnother challenge: San Francisco sued Trump over moves to keep federal cash from cities which refuse to cooperate with immigration authorities. A judge has temporarily blocked the measure

Of course!  Left-wing Judge William Orrick, an Obama appointed judge in San Francisco who raised $200,000 for the former president, rules against Trump executive order to ban funding of sanctuary cities. Orrick’s wife is also a member of far-left groups on Facebook: Center for Reproductive Justice, Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, and Fans of Rachel Maddow.

The Hill reports:

San Francisco and Santa Clara County won preliminary injections to block Trump’s January order to withhold federal funds from “sanctuary cities” that refuse to comply with federal authorities in enforcing immigration laws, according to multiple reports.

According to the judge’s order, the Justice Department can still without grants from places that don’t comply with the law, but cannot enforce the order “in a way that violates the Constitution,” noted Washington Post reporter Matt Zapotosky.

An Amazing Discovery – Culturally Speaking – We’re All Adults Here

I know exactly what is coming next: a (highly limited) addition of a certain variety of “artificial intelligence.” Something similar to this:

O.K. ladies don’t go all self-righteous on me remember when you kept your little toys that went buzz?

From the depths of my twisted mind, I offer you this.

The owners of this booming enterprise have promised a complementary line for women.

Christmas is coming so be nice to him if you hope to get him to buy one of your own.

You both know you are tired of each other, give each other a break.

Earl of Taint

As I googled for a picture of a “love doll” (for possible use in support of an important news report I’ll likely be filing maybe later), what I expected was something like what we called “Judy Dolls” back in the day.

The incredibly fake, inflatable things with the donut hole mouth and conical ‘breasts.’

But wow…my goodness there’s an entire universe of makers and sellers and collectors of extremely life-like dolls…

In an upside down world perhaps this makes sense: Frisking Nuns

The insanity marches on.

We don’t want to insult a hijab-clad Muslim woman by a search, but it’s OK to search a nun.

This is actually the first time I’ve ever agreed with Cenk Uygur at Young Turks, a notorious left whiner. 

At Israel’s Ben Gurion airport, would be terrorists don’t even make it inside the airport where the serious surveillance begins. 

In an area where the Palestinians are constantly firing rockets into Israel, perhaps we might begin using the Israeli system in airports the world over.

It won’t work to just do it to outbound planes from the U.S.A.

Aviation Security and the Israeli Model.

Israel’s Ben Gurion airport has avoided any terrorist attacks in 45 years.

Though there have not been many terrorist attacks on airports of late, it would still behoove the members of the U.S. Congress to put legislation on President Trump’s desk to sign.
