Kim Kardashian has got a big problem. The media has their sights set on replacing her with a new Kim 2.0. Kim Yo Jong, the sister of Kim Jong Un, was all the media could talk about this weekend.
Kim 2.0 made an appearance at the Olympics, but she didn’t bring tanks or missiles. She brought an army of red costumed smiling cheerleaders. Hmm… women dressed in red and forced to do the bidding of a tyrannical regime. You’d think since it’s all the rage right now, that the media would have went all Handmaid’s Tale on Kim 2.0, but here’s the headline that most outlets ran with: “North Korean Cheerleaders are stealing the show.”
That was from USA Today specifically regarding the cheerleaders, but CNN used the exact same headline for Kim: “Kim Jong Un’s sister is stealing the show at the Winter Olympics.”
The Washington Post called her “enthralling” and the “Ivanka Trump of North Korea.” Reuters flashed a smiling picture of Kim 2.0 and deemed her the “winner of diplomatic gold at the Olympics.”
I feel like I have to say this every week, but I have completely given up on the media. It’s comical… they actually have no idea why no one trusts them anymore. While they were glamorizing and legitimizing a mass murdering slave state, they were simultaneously vilifying MIKE PENCE. Look, I get that their opposition to Trump has made it to where they’d prop up anyone opposed to him, but this is getting out of control.
Far be it for the media to report the truth, but this is the reality. Those red-clad cheerleaders are probably the most tragic sight at the Olympics. Make no mistake, those are human slaves. Do you think they have a choice to be there? What do you think happens to their families if they make a mistake or, God forbid, run away? They’d be put to death, and every media outlet turning the Kim family into the Kardashians knows it.
And this new Kim 2.0? She’s number two behind her brother. She sits at the top of the North Korean Politburo. When Kim Jong Un gets sick, she fills in until his return. She’s responsible for the enslavement, torture, and murder of thousands upon thousands. And probably the most ridiculous thing about the media’s grotesque fawning is that her primary job - as head of North Korean State propaganda - is to put on these shows specifically to deceive the press! Is the media that gullible, that stupid, or that eager to support literally ANYONE that defies Trump?
Imagine being Otto Warmbier’s mom and dad, flipping through the channels this weekend and having to deal with this media coverage. This is grotesque and sick. So, to the media, thank you for giving us one more reason not to trust you. Thank you for showing us who you are and what you stand for. I’m done with you.
What $1.5 trillion is going to buy us
Are the bridges and roads in your town climate-change proof?
Today, President Trump is expected to unveil the $1.5 trillion infrastructure plan that he talked about often on the campaign trail and highlighted in his State of the Union address.
The extensive repair list has apparently been prioritized and the bill tallied. Cracked bridges? Check. Crumbling roads? Check. Rusted railways? Check. Climate-change threat assessment? Oops – I knew we were forgetting something.
The federal government does not have $1.5 trillion to pay for infrastructure improvements, but according to The New York Times, that is the very least of the concern here. In their alarming story over the weekend, non-specific “engineers and researchers” say Trump’s plan is probably not taking into account that many parts of the country are “increasingly vulnerable to rising waters and other threats from a warming planet.”
Clearly, we’re just days away from having to grow gills like Kevin Costner in Waterworld, because all land is about to disappear and those science-haters in the White House aren’t factoring this into their infrastructure plan. Couldn’t they at least budget for floaties and snorkels for America’s women and children? The humanity!
According to the Times story, questioning the risk that America faces from global warming and rolling back climate change regulations is one of the Trump administration’s “defining regulatory principles.”
The climate-change crowd is beside themselves with grief that their alarm is not front and center in the government’s infrastructure planning. They say if we don’t consider now how global warming and climate changing will destroy our bridges, and roads, and drown our airports, then it will cost the country way more money in the future. That’s certainly a new strategy in promoting climate change – as the fiscally responsible thing to do.
So, the Left is concerned about how much something is going to cost the government in the future? That’s a new one too.
The climate-changers shouldn’t lose too much sleep over this one. The way parties and politicians have been switching sides lately, they’ll probably just end up dumping all of that $1.5 trillion into climate change research.
Further proof the internet has made us dumber
Dachau concentration camp in Germany is a place overrun with misery and despair.
It was established by the Nazi government in 1933 as one of the first concentration camps.
At Dachau, many medical experiments were tested on the prisoners.
Here the Nazis’ froze people to determine how to treat hypothermia. They used them to test their attempts at making seawater safe to drink. They intentionally inflicted people with contagious diseases like malaria and typhoid fever to test how they could treat them.
At least 28,000 prisoners died horrific deaths at Dachau.
Vice President Mike Pence and his family visited the concentration camp last year.
When the photos of this event were posted, the Pence family all appear overcome with sadness. How could they not be?
If you’ve ever been to a Nazi death camp, that is the only way you know how to feel.
But recently, their photo has turned into an internet meme of sorts—with people mocking the Pence’s for looking grim. They are trying to make a game out of the photo. ‘On a level of 1 to the Pence family, how sad are you?’
What can someone possibly gain from tastelessly commenting on the Pence family? A few chuckles from a stranger in their basement? A few retweets by like-minded idiots?
I’m really not sure if the internet has made us smarter or dumber.
There’s a bigger lesson here. Just because you can post it, doesn’t mean you should.
