Thought for the day

"We're so self-important. So arrogant. Everybody's going to save something now. Save the trees, save the bees, save the whales, save the snails. And the supreme arrogance? Save the planet! Are these people kidding? Save the planet? We don't even know how to take care of ourselves; we haven't learned how to care for one another. We're gonna save the fuckin' planet? . . . And, by the way, there's nothing wrong with the planet in the first place. The planet is fine. The people are fucked! Compared with the people, the planet is doin' great. It's been here over four billion years . . . The planet isn't goin' anywhere, folks. We are! We're goin' away. Pack your shit, we're goin' away. And we won't leave much of a trace. Thank God for that. Nothing left. Maybe a little Styrofoam. The planet will be here, and we'll be gone. Another failed mutation; another closed-end biological mistake." -- George Carlin

Ridiculous TikTok challenges are back — and the high price of obtaining online infamy is again endangering the lives of young people.

Teens are now jumping in front of oncoming trucks in an attempt to make outrageous online content — but suffering fatal consequences.

Supposed free-thinker and renowned atheist Sam Harris has admitted that he approves of the corporate media manipulating and misinforming the public to stop Donald Trump.

So much for pretending you believe in people hearing all the facts and making up their own minds about things. No, no … in order to preserve democracy, we must manipulate the people, lie to them by way of omission, and hide the truth.

Here it is, straight from the liar’s mouth:

Facebook will prevent edits to ads dealing with social, political, or electoral issues that are approved to run in the week of the midterm elections, among a number of steps it is taking to build on and expand what it calls its 2020 election “safeguards” ahead of the midterms.

In a press release written by Facebook (now known as Meta) Global Affairs President Nick Clegg, the tech company which remains a pivotal force in disseminating news to Americans boasted of its efforts to “protect elections online,” not just in the United States but around the world.

The central point to grasp from the July jobs data, unreported as far as we can see by anyone except VDARE.com, is that ALL the job growth went to immigrants (legal and illegal, the government—disgracefully—does not distinguish). Also, real aka inflation-adjusted wages fell, and the Biden Rush at the southern border continued at historically high levels. Basically, the trend is awful, for American workers and for America.

CNN Chief Media Correspondent and "Reliable Sources" host Brian Stelter is set to leave the network, as the network cancels his show.

Stelter said in a statement to NPR that he's grateful for the show and his team's examination of "the media, truth and the stories that shape our world."

Popular MSNBC host Rachel Maddow recently returned from her nearly two-month hiatus to reveal that she’s going to be taking more time off and only be on air once a week.

Since then, Maddow has returned to the network on a new schedule. Instead of going on air every weeknight, she’s airing only one night per week to make time for other projects — and she just gave a big update on her new plans.

Retired British media executive Grahame Perrie analyses the possible reasons for the British media’s inadequate reporting of the Palestine-Israel conflict, the Russia-Ukraine war and elsewhere, including failure to challenge the politically-motivated definition of anti-Semitism, skirting around vital issues that are critical to understanding a story, and lack of investigative journalism in the Ukraine-Russia conflict.
