Hell freezes over? New York Times wants closer relationship with Russia, congratulates Trump

Screen Shot 2019-07-22 at 11.14.18 AM

The New York Times’ editorial board, fresh from peddling anti-Russia conspiracies for two years, has made a remarkable about-turn. Now the paper wants closer relations with the Kremlin, all to thwart China’s ambitions.

‘Russiagate’ has maintained an iron grip on American political discourse for two years now, even after Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report cleared President Donald Trump of conspiring with the Kremlin to steal the 2016 US election. In the media, the public has been treated to nightly conspiracy theories and bizarre connect-the-dots articles claiming to prove collusion; and lawmakers have crafted ever more draconian sanctions bills against Russia and have slotted opposition to Russia into their campaign messages.

Meanwhile, Moscow and Beijing have looked to each other, holding joint military exercises and upping their trade volume to more than $100 billion in 2018. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev recently announced plans to build a new, 2,000km-long highway linking Europe and China, while President Vladimir Putin has been mulling connecting Russia’s Northern Sea Route with China’s Maritime Silk Road, an ambitious global trade route linking China with ports in Southeast Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Middle East.

The idea of closer Moscow/Beijing cooperation clearly worries the New York Times’ editorial board. In an op-edpublished on Sunday, the board wrote that “President Trump is correct to try to establish a sounder relationship with Russia and peel it away from China” – itself a remarkable compliment from a paper that ran op-eds titled “Donald Trump Hates America,” and “Trump is Racist to the Bone” in the last five days.

The board then suggested that the US could strengthen its cooperation with Russia in space exploration and Arctic cleanup – areas untainted by ‘Russiagate’. In addition, new arms control treaties could be a step towards geopolitical cooperation between the two rival superpowers.

All valid and worthy points, but from the New York Times? Yes, we’re talking about the same newspaper that last year called Trump a “treasonous traitor” ahead of his meeting with Putin in Helsinki. Instead of seeking rapprochement then, the paper argued that Trump should “be directing all resources at his disposal to punish Russia.” 

We’re talking about the same New York Times that dubbed Trump “Putin’s Lackey” and released a mocking videodetailing a ‘love story’ between Trump and Putin, laden with homoerotic overtones and culminating in a tongue-locking kiss between the two leaders. It’s funny because they’re gay, see?

The piece surprised many, like pundit George Szamuely, who wrote that Washington has demonized Russia and blamed it for every problem besetting [the] US,” while the Times “has for years berated Trump for advocating this perfectly sensible policy, at times suggesting that he was doing so only because he was Putin’s agent and a traitor to the United States.”

Bear in mind that the Times’ editorial board does not hold the same opinions as its revolving cast of op-ed writers. Still, for a newspaper whose writers almost unanimously despise the US president, Sunday’s op-ed represents a shocking repudiation of two years of anti-Russia, anti-Trump static.

Perhaps the outlet that often voiced the ideas of the American establishment has finally realized that the ‘Russiagate’ horse is too long dead for another flogging? Or maybe the Times saw it’s time for a new kind of politics: the politics of Detente. Either way, the change is a surprising one.

GOOGLE SUSPENDS “TRENDING” EMAILS IN NEW ZEALAND AFTER GOVERNMENT COMPLAINTS

Google Suspends "Trending" Emails in New Zealand After Government Complaints

Tech giant cuts entire feature from country after publishing sensitive information

By Ben Warren

Google has suspended an email alert system in New Zealand after the government slammed the search giant for publishing suppressed details about a murder case.

The “Google Trends” automated alert defied a court order that suppressed the name of a murder suspect by putting the accused killer’s name in an email’s subject line.

“In light of the concerns you expressed this week, Google has also suspended Google trends email about searches trending in New Zealand,” saidGoogle’s government affairs and public policy manager Ross Young in a Friday email. “This means that people will no longer receive emails on any trending searches for New Zealand and provides even further assurance against any recurrence [of a similar incident].” 

Young was responding to Justice Minister Andrew Little’s accusations that Google had not done anything to change their alert system since the incident and that the tech titan was “flipping the bird” at the country’s legal system.

“Google’s contempt for New Zealand law, and for [the murder victim’s] family is unacceptable, and I will now be considering my options,” said Young earlier this week, later urging Google to not be “evil” and to “do the right thing,” in a clear jab at the company’s “don’t be evil” motto.

Interestingly, an earlier response from Google on the incident was reportedly downplaying the need to change their Trends system because the murder story was already “extensively reported on by overseas media.”

Communist Charged With Felony, Media Provides Sneaky Defense Of Antifa

Published on Jul 5, 2019

Communist Charged With Felony, Media Provides Sneaky Defense Of Antifa. Recently in Washington DC several communists tried to light an American Flag eventually succeeding and throwing it on a Secret Service agent. One person was charged with a felony over the incident.

But this recent news gives rise to a larger question. Why does the media insist on defending the far left? The answer is obvious, the media has a left wing bias. While its not a far left bias it is becoming so. When dealing with the issues of Antifa and right wing groups the media will allow the far left to define itself and its goals while also allowing the far left to define the right and what they believe their goals to be. In this framing the right will always be bad and the left will always be good, even when the media is forced to condemn certain actions. Following the Andy Ngo incident the Portland Chief of Police has called for unmasking laws saying that Antifa should not be allowed to wear masks as it allows them to escape justice. So long as these groups are allowed to define themselves the media will continue to claim this is a group fighting for social justice who sometimes makes mistakes instead of the bad guys they really are. #FarLeft #MediaBias #FakeNews

DON LEMON INVOKES HITLER WHILE DISCUSSING MEDIA’S ROLE IN COVERING TRUMP

Don Lemon Invokes Hitler While Discussing Media's Role in Covering Trump

CNN hack’s comments too extreme for Chris Cuomo

JUNE 19, 2019

CNN anchor Don Lemon made what he himself described as a “extreme” comparison between President Trump and Adolf Hitler while arguing that such “bad people” shouldn’t be given a platform.

During their nightly hand-off, his primetime colleague Chris Cuomo began by describing 2020 as the most “definitional” election in his lifetime. Lemon appeared to attempt to shame Trump supporters, and asked them if they will “continue to fall for the o-ke-doke.” But then he questioned the media’s responsibilities in covering Trump’s candidacy.

The “CNN Tonight” anchor urged Cuomo to “think about the most despicable people in history” and warned him that he was going to use an “extreme example.”
