the news through uncle rupe and soros prisms..

NYP

The pastor of a largely immigrant Catholic church in Queens has a suggestion for his anti-Trump parishioners — go take a flying leap off the nearest building.

“Show your hate for Trump. Do it for social justice. #JumpAgainstTrump,” read a meme posted by Father Philip Pizzo just hours after he celebrated Sunday Mass.

The message included an illustration of a man plummeting from a skyscraper.

The conservative priest, who oversees St. Benedict Joseph Labre Roman Catholic Church in Richmond Hill, previously posted a photo of Obama with the words “He’s not my president’’ and another snapshot of Hillary Clinton titled “Ugly Face’’ in Italian along with “Happy Halloween.’’

Pizzo, 67, told The Post on Monday that he just thought the “Jump Against Trump’’ meme was “funny.”

“I do not promote suicide,’’ Pizzo insisted. “I’ve helped many people over the years, and it does not promote suicide. It was funny.”

But some parishioners were outraged.

Meanwhile in our follow Megyn Kelly tracking device (When the FOX sends a tough "dove" to NBC...) :

Media insiders are buzzing that Andy Lack wants NBC to become “the next Fox News” after he poached cable stars Greta Van Susteren and Megyn Kelly from the network.

“He believes he’s building MSNBC and NBC into the next Fox. It seems the network wants to take a more conservative tone,” a source said.

Kelly was hired at NBC without an official time slot, but Page Six exclusively revealed she would be taking over the “9 a.m. or 10 a.m. hour” of “Today” in September.

We’re told she is getting paid about $12 million a year for the gig, which will include a Sunday talk show.

Some fear Kelly may not be worth the bucks since her Fox replacement Tucker Carlson nearly doubled her ratings on Fox News after her departure.

Uncle Rupe is still laughing... And not only that NBC will pay the bill...

 

Meanwhile at the Soros inflitration network:

The activities of organizations funded by US billionaire investor George Soros in Hungary are “anti-democratic,” as they want to undermine the government in Budapest, the foreign minister of Hungary told RT. 

Soros “would like this government to fail, he would like to kind of fire this government because he doesn’t like our approach, doesn’t like our policies,” Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto told RT’s Sophie Shevardnadze.

“We find it very anti-democratic if someone from abroad would like to influence Hungarian voters on whom to vote for,” he asserted.

Several days before the interview, the Hungarian parliament began to discuss a bill allowing authorities to audit NGO executives and request detailed reports on their foreign donations.

the new world disorder

Last week, Council on Foreign Relations President Richard Haass penned an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal urging Donald Trump not to "make any sudden moves." Haas is right, conservative pundit Pat Buchanan noted, in arguing against rash action. But what CFR shadow government types still don't seem to realize is that their New World Order has died.

In an op-ed addressed directly to the new President, Haass emphasized that ripping up the Iran deal, moving the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, or shooting down a North Korean missile during a test would only "make things worse," with no action being better than the wrong action.

Commenting on Haass' advice in his column for The American Conservative, veteran political commentator Pat Buchanan noted that "in arguing against rash action, Haass is correct. Where the CFR and the establishment are wrong, and Donald Trump is right, however, is in recognizing the new world we have entered."

Note:  the WSJ is owned by Uncle Rupe... Some of what's in it is "reverse psychology" to keep a psycho on track... Works like a charm.

"power to you, the people"

Here, with all the media being so-called independent and protective of our interests, all we can say is that we're screwed daily by the news. The media barons are in bed with the politicians and their spruik-sheets are no more independent than a pair of socks lost in a washing machine. "We, the people" are the fodder for the rich to make money, and the distractions abound, while Trump is fiddling with this and that. Same shit as OBAMA — DIFFERENT STYLE.

Somewhere someone is going to get hurt. That is the name of the game and as pawns, we are dispensable as long as we pay rent in advance. It's called credit. "Power to you, the people" was the headline on the front cover of the NYP, which I truthfully changed to "power to me, the people". Me meaning Trump himself — and me, the social moire in which narcissism has become the new religion.

the murdoch sons "united"...

While not criticizing Trump directly, the next-generation bosses of Fox News Channel, the Fox movie and TV entities and the rest of the media empire that their father Rupert Murdoch built and still oversees joined others like the MPAA in going public wth an memo to their 20,000 employees about the controversial action the ex-Celebrity Apprentice took on January 27. POTUS’ executive order puts a 90-day halt on citizens of seven Muslim majority countries from entering the United States and freezes the Syrian refugee program for 120 days with an aim to cut it in half eventually.

All of which, the Murdoch boys realize, has potentially big implications for their global and multi-national corporate units — as they made clear in the vague statement they put out tonight:

Colleagues,

With the recent changes to the U.S.’s immigration policies, we know this is a time of real uncertainty for many of our colleagues around the world.

First of all, we want to assure you that we’re doing what we can to assist impacted colleagues and their families.

While details of the new policy remain in flux in many instances, we do know it has broad implications. The new restrictions impact business travelers and current employees from seven countries for an initial period of 90 days. The current restrictions are not limited to visa holders, but also extend to permanent residents who are citizens of those countries.

Our immediate focus is on identifying and reaching out to people who may be affected. We are providing them with a range of support, including legal advice and assistance.

If you have any questions about how you and your family may be impacted, please contact your business unit HR manager.

21CF is a global company, proudly headquartered in the U.S., founded by – and comprising at all levels of the business – immigrants. We deeply value diversity and believe immigration is an essential part of America’s strength. Moreover, as a company that is driven by creativity and innovation, we recognize the unique perspective offered by our many people who came to the U.S. in search of the opportunity for unfettered self-expression.

We will continue to monitor developments in what is still a fluid situation. We will keep you informed as we learn more.

In the meantime, please know that the well-being of our colleagues is our top priority.

As lawsuits against the travel ban and protests continue at airports around the nation, political chaos has broken out in D.C. between the White House and Acting Attorney General and Obama appointee Sally Yates’ order for Department of Justice lawyers not to defend the order in the courts. (UPDATE, 6:19 PM: Unsurprisingly, Yates was fired by the Trump administration tonight and replaced with Dana Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, until Sen. Jeff Sessions is confirmed as AG, a move expected later this week.)

A couple of years ago Murdoch senior offered his desire to see immigration reform in an editorial he penned for the Wall Street Journal, which the media mogul owns. “We need to give those individuals who are already here—after they have passed checks to ensure they are not dangerous criminals—a path to citizenship so they can pay their full taxes, be counted, and become more productive members of our community,” Rupert Murdoch wrote on June 18, 2014.

“If we are serious about advancing our economic future and about creating job growth here in America, then we must realize that it is suicidal to suggest closing our doors to the world’s entrepreneurs, or worse, to continue with large-scale deportations,” he added. “That is not to suggest we don’t need to do a far better job securing our border,” Murdoch also noted. “Border security should be an integral part of a comprehensive solution, and we should not dismiss the concerns of states that are struggling to deal with the consequences of ongoing illegal immigration.”

Perhaps Rupert Murdoch will have more to say soon on immigration now that his sons have said their piece about President Trump’s move against citizens from Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Syria, Libya, Somalia and Yemen.

devouring news — a bit like poisoning yourself?


Competing Media Narratives Arise in Trump’s First Days

 

 

For readers and viewers devouring news of about the administration, the choice of narratives has become starker.

the megyn kelly saga continues...

Tamron Hall’s decision to leave NBC News after her show was axed to make way for new star Megyn Kelly sent shockwaves through the TV world — and a 30 Rock insider told Page Six Hall walked away leaving “multiple millions” on the table.

“Tamron was offered a multi-year, multi-million dollar deal to stay at the ‘Today’ show and she turned it down,” the insider said. “People inside NBC were shocked. They expected her to stay,” a source said.

Hall’s relationship with NBC soured when the network canceled her top-rated morning show “Today’s Take,” which she co-hosted with Al Roker, to create a slot for Kelly. Hall found out she was being ousted minutes before she went on-air last Friday. “She was devastated to get the news. It was almost an Ann Curry moment live again on TV. It was surreal,” another insider told us.

Staffers have been buzzing about Andy Lack’s decision to replace “Today’s” first black female anchor with Kelly.
