Media bias? Tom Hanks: ‘It Concerns Me How Much Trump Attacks the Press…’ Oh?

 

media bias

Media bias?  In an interview with David Axelrod for CNN’s “The Axe Files,” actor Tom Hanks said it “concerns” him how much President Donald Trump takes on the press.

According to Hanks, the Trump administration’s “insidious” behavior to “denigrate” outlets like CNN and The Washington Post helps out “agenda-filled” institutions.

“As an American, it concerns me, because it’s monkeying around with our Constitution,” Hanks told Axelrod in the interview that aired Saturday. “It’s relatively obvious, I think, as what is trying to go forward. When you tear down these institutions to a level to [where] you can’t believe anything that is in any of them, that raises the stock of those agenda-filled other institutions, whatnot, so that if you can’t believe them, well that means you get to believe some of the other stuff that is in these and so, what is happening is that dilution of the great — they’re throwing dirt and oil into a bucket of water.”

Firenze Sage:  This is complete gibberish and like most actors Tom Hanks  knows little of what he speaks and can hardly speak extemporaneously.

Firenze Sage—improve lives by burning houses [Neera Tanden, Center for American Progress]

Center for American Progress President Neera Tanden, an immigrant from India, on the burning of Murdock’s mansion tweets There is a God.”

Glad that a wealthy man’s home burns — that improves the lives of Americans?     The Center for American Progress (CAP) is a progressive public policy research and advocacy organization. According to CAP, the center is “dedicated to improving the lives of all Americans, through bold, progressive ideas, as well as strong leadership and concerted action.”[2] The Center presents a liberal[3] viewpoint on economic and social issues. It has its headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Leftist Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress (CAP) and a former campaign staffer for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, tweeted her glee that Fox News acting CEO Rupert Murdoch’s mansion in the Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles was burned down in a wildfire.

Tanden retweeted an NBC News report of Murdoch’s mansion going up in flames, with the caption: “There’s a God. And she’s unhappy.

You seriously hope that your political appointees have their homes burned down? Classless!

I do not hope for such things at all. I just note the Karma.

written by Neera Tanden a/12/2014 — her story coming from India 

“I grew up in a suburb of Boston, the child of two immigrants who had come from India decades earlier. We lived in a house in Bedford, Massachusetts, a quintessential middle-class town. But when I was 5, my parents got divorced and my dad left. My mother was on her own. Having never held a job before, she faced the choice of going back to India or going on welfare to support her two young children. In India, we would have been stigmatized; no one got divorced there in the 1970s. She knew that the children of a divorced woman would have limited life opportunities in India.

“So we stayed. We were on welfare. We were on food stamps. And we received Section 8 housing vouchers to help pay the rent. Thanks to a new law in Massachusetts, we were able to use those vouchers to move into an apartment in Bedford and remain in our town’s good public schools…..

Firenze Sage: Wait, Noah, we’ve been misinformed … about sea levels

Noah we’ve been misinformed …

 Noah, we’ve been misinformed … about sea levels rising.

Alarmist scientists have been caught red-handed tampering with raw data in order to exaggerate sea level rise.

The raw (unadjusted) data from three Indian Ocean gauges – Aden, Karachi and Mumbai – showed that local sea level trends in the last 140 years had been very gently rising, neutral or negative (ie sea levels had fallen).

But after the evidence had been adjusted by tidal records gatekeepers at the global databank Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) it suddenly showed a sharp and dramatic rise.

The whistle was blown by two Australian scientists Dr. Albert Parker and Dr. Clifford Ollier in a paper for Earth Systems and Environment.

The paper – Is the Sea Level Stable at Aden, Yemen? – examines the discrepancies between raw and adjusted sea level data in Aden, Karachi and Mumbai.

Kenneth Richard at No Tricks Zone reports:

The authors expose how PSMSL  data-adjusters make it appear that stable sea levels can be rendered to look like they are nonetheless rising at an accelerated pace.

The data-adjusters take misaligned and incomplete sea level data from tide gauges that show no sea level rise (or even a falling trend).  Then, they subjectively and arbitrarily cobble them together, or realign them.   In each case assessed, PSMSL data-adjusters lower the earlier misaligned rates and raise the more recent measurements.  By doing so, they concoct a new linearly-rising trend.

who receives the Body & Blood? Who can vote? Aptos CA Catholics & Episcopalians tighten their rules — very differently

rules tighten differently  at Episcopalian & Catholic churches in Aptos, CA

Aptos CA Catholics and Episcopalians tighten  their rules — in quite different ways.

  Episcopalians pay to pray before voting:

The laying on of hands by an Episcopalian bishop  and the payment of identifiable  money to the church are two of a number of   requirements for members  at St. John’s in Aptos, CA who want to vote Dec. 10, 2017.

  The Rector, Mother Tracy, writes in an email 12/07/2017  that  in order to be “technically” an Episcopalian,   sometime in the past an Episcopalian bishop laid hands in a church service  on the person.   All  who meet various  requirements can vote Dec. 10 for elections to the church board.

Aptos Catholic  christians also tighten their rules:  The last to receive will be first now. Different housekeeping rules will  be  enforced at  Resurrection Catholic Community. The order of who gets served  first is one change.

  Remember  the bible verse,    “The  last will be first —  and the first will be last”? [Matthew 20:16] It’s an apt summary.

   The Eucharistic Ministers at  Resurrection Catholic Community   who assist with the service  — these people  who used to be the  last persons  to receive — will now be first persons   to receive.   Each Eucharistic Minister will  receive from the  Catholic priest prior to   serving others.

It was stated that this is an “old”  Catholic rule  — one of many “shoulds” that need to  be done — that  now  goes into effect at Resurrection Catholic Community in Aptos, CA.    Further,   the tender  care with which any remaining Body and Blood is handled after everyone has received, those rules are tightened.

 So — are there any  Aptos Catholic christians who want to receive directly from their priest?   Ask to serve and be trained  as an Eucharistic Minister. The last to receive will now be first to receive at Resurrection Catholic Community in Aptos.

 At St. John’s episcopal church all attendees standing in a circle  receive the Body from the priest and then they receive the  Blood from an assisting Eucharistic Minister.

Of most importance is participation as the Body of Christ.  All are welcome at St. John’s episcopal and Resurrection catholic community.

Below are photos taken 12/10 on Voting Day at St. John’s episcopal. Great coffee!

Green waste stays as your waste unless you ….

Green waste remains   on your property as your waste unless you …. follow the rules. The Santa Cruz County company,   Greenwaste Recovery Inc,   says:  You must put your “green” yard debris   into GREEN bio-degradable bags — not plastic bags  — and those green  biodegradable bags  must weigh less than 50 pounds.   Those are the garbage company’s  rules.  For a mere $4.00 per bag Greenwaste  will take plastic bags as “garbage”.  Does the garbage company supply the appropriate bags? No – you buy them.  Ace Hardware in the Rancho del Mar shopping center in  Aptos carries 5 bags for $3.49 that hold 30 gallon and are for composting.  These  are heavy duty paper bags.  Looking on the internet for bio-degradable bags …..  Where does Santa Cruz county green waste go?  Elsewhere!      written by Cameron Jackson

Mulling over Mueller’s conflict of interests

 Mueller’s conflicts of interest.

Conservative media has taken a new tack against Mueller in recent weeks, zeroing in on the sale of Canadian mining company Uranium One to the Russia state-owned nuclear firm Rosatom.

Uranium One, at the time of the deal, held licenses for about 20 percent of America’s uranium production capacity. The sale was approved by nine members on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) in 2010, while President Obama was in office. Mueller was the director of the FBI at the time.

But reporting by The Hill has shown that the FBI had knowledge of bribery and racketeering schemes at Tenex, a subsidiary of Rosatom, before CFIUS approved the deal.

Republican lawmakers critical of the deal have questioned whether the FBI shared that information with other members of CFIUS before it was approved — an aspect of the controversy that conservative media has seized upon.

“Robert Mueller, I hope you’re watching, you need to testify under oath,” Fox News host Sean Hannity said earlier this month. “Back in 2009, he was the FBI director, this was when the bureau, the FBI so clearly had this information. He has conflicts of interest. There is no way the American people can trust Robert Mueller to investigate anything Russia-related. For him to be fair and impartial is impossible because of his past role in this. He should resign immediately, tonight.”

_________________________

Comments:   What “crime” was committed and therefore Mueller investigates?   No crime has been stated.  Clearly there were and are on-going attempts of Russia and other countries to interfere in American affairs.  The General who lied did so during transition – not during the campaign.  So we should we impeach Trump …. what the mainstream media and  “the deep state” want  ….  because Trump fired FBI Comey who “knew” the General lied?

Firenze Sage–Most transparent administration – Trump or Obama?

reporters access to the President.

Trump’s administration is more transparent.  The editor of the Washington Post revealed an inside Washington secret Monday about President Trump: He is far more accessible to reporters than former President Obama.

 Martin Baron told a conference on journalism ethics that Trump regularly makes himself available to reporters, even if it sometimes comes with criticism of the media.
