NY Times columnist ‘jokes’ about assassinating Trump

It’s bad enough that the overwhelming majority of U.S. journalists are liberals and donors to the Democratic Party.

Now we have a journalist — of the New York Times, no less — who jokes about assassinating presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Ross Douthat

Paul Joseph Watson reports for InfoWars that on Feb. 24, 2016, New York Times columnist Ross Douthat tweeted a “joke” that Donald Trump’s presidential campaign could be ended by killing him:

“Good news guys I’ve figured out how the Trump campaign ends.”

Douthat’s tweet included a link to a video clip that leaves no doubt he meant assassination for “how the Trump campaign ends.” The video clip is from the 1983 movie The Dead Zone, which features a character played by Christopher Walken attempting to assassinate a political figure played by Martin Sheen.

After his tweet generated an uproar on social media, Douthat deleted the tweet and apologized.

Here’s the now-deleted tweet:

Ross Douthat's assassinate Trump tweet

Ross Douthat, 36, is an author (Bad Religion: How We Became a Nation of Heretics; Grand New Party: How Republicans Can Win the Working Class and Save the American Dream), blogger, and N.Y. Times‘ youngest regular op/ed writer. He joined the Times in April 2009, replacing Bill Kristol as a conservative voice on the Times editorial page. Douthat supports Marco Rubio and John Kasich.

Trump’s former adviser Roger Stone said Trump now wears a bullet proof vest at all public appearance due to the sheer volume of death threats he receives on a regular basis.

Trump first began wearing the vest in October last year after reports that the world’s most wanted drug lord El Chapo had put a $100 million bounty on his head. Trump also began receiving Secret Service protection at around this time.

After his comments on Muslim immigration last December, Twitter exploded with death threats against Trump.

NYT refuses Muhammad cartoon but publishes offensive painting of Virgin Mary in elephant dung

Liberals have a special knack for hypocrisy.

After the January 2015 massacre by Muslim jihadists of 12 staffers of the Paris satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, the New York Times was one of several major print media that refused to reprint a Hebdo cartoon of Muhammad.

Charlie Hebdo Muhammad cartoonCartoon of Muhammad on a 2011 cover of Charlie Hebdo. The quote, in English, is “100 lashes if you are not dying of laughter”.

In an email, a NYT spokesperson explained why:

 Under Times standards, we do not normally publish images or other material deliberately intended to offend religious sensibilities. After careful consideration, Times editors decided that describing the cartoons in question would give readers sufficient information to understand today’s story.

Notwithstanding its professed standards of not publishing images that “deliberately intend to offend religious sensibilities,” on May 29, 2015, in a Scott Reyburn article on the sale of Chris Ofili’s controversial painting “The Holy Virgin Mary,” which shows the Virgin Mary clotted with elephant dung against a porn-collage background, the same New York Times saw fit to publish a photograph of the painting that is offensive to Christians, especially Catholics.

Chris Ofili's blasphemous Virgin Mary painting

Ofili’s 1996 painting caused a furor when it was shown at the Brooklyn Museum in October 1999. The 8 ft. painting of a black Virgin Mary encrusted with a lump of elephant dung, surrounded by collaged bottoms from pornographic magazines, outraged religious leaders and then Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, who described the painting as “sick stuff” and tried to close the exhibition by withholding public funds. But Giuliani’s attempt was rejected by a federal judge. The painting was subsequently acquired by Australian entrepreneur David Walsh, who now wants to sell it.

What Cliven Bundy Really Said. The Full Quote Before NY Times Edited it.

I really don’t have a dog in this hunt. I just knew something was not right. Sure enough the New York Times released an edited version of transcript, and Media Matters Uploaded the same edited Vid to You-Tube. Please read and watch. Then make up your mind. We have been played, and if you’re not pissed off…then I don’t know.

I am ticked Off, All the Cowards who ran for cover.

Beck, Hannity, All the Pols. Cowards all.


First, this is textbook; Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals rule #12

“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)”

…” and so what I’ve testified to ya’, I was in the WATTS riot, I seen the beginning fire and I seen the last fire. What I seen is civil disturbance. People are not happy, people is thinking they did not have their freedom; they didn’t have these things, and they didn’t have them.

We’ve progressed quite a bit from that day until now, and sure don’t want to go back; we sure don’t want the colored people to go back to that point; we sure don’t want the Mexican people to go back to that point; and we can make a difference right now by taking care of some of these bureaucracies, and do it in a peaceful way.

Let me tell.. talk to you about the Mexicans, and these are just things I know about the negroes. I want to tell you one more thing I know about the negro.

When I go, went, go to Las Vegas, North Las Vegas; and I would see these little government houses, and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids…. and there was always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch. They didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for the kids to do. They didn’t have nothing for the young girls to do.

And because they were basically on government subsidy – so now what do they do? They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never, they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered are they were better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things? Or are they better off under government subsidy?

You know they didn’t get more freedom, uh they got less freedom – they got less family life, and their happiness -you could see it in their faces- they were not happy sitting on that concrete sidewalk. Down there they was probably growing their turnips – so that’s all government, that’s not freedom.

Now, let me talk about the Spanish people. You know I understand that they come over here against our constitution and cross our borders. But they’re here and they’re people – and I’ve worked side-by-side a lot of them.

Don’t tell me they don’t work, and don’t tell me they don’t pay taxes. And don’t tell me they don’t have better family structure than most of us white people. When you see those Mexican families, they’re together, they picnic together, they’re spending their time together, and I’ll tell you in my way of thinking they’re awful nice people.

And we need to have those people join us and be with us…. not, not come to our party.

Just How Bad Is ObamaCare Website? Well Let Me Tell You. It’s Unfixable According To Some Experts.

Why? Because it is a big fat bloated pig with 500 Million Lines of code.

Ok I’m no techno weenie so just how big is 500 million lines of code? Keep reading and you will find out. 

Opp's there goes another one.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney    First Published: October 23, 2013: 7:04 AM ET

Experts say the major problems with the Obamacare website can’t reasonably be solved before the end of 2013, and the best fix would be to start over from scratch.

Yeah, what he said. Uh Huh!

Yeah, what he said. Uh Huh!

After assessing the website, Dave Kennedy, the CEO of information-security companyTrusted Sec, estimates that about 20% of Healthcare.gov needs to be rewritten. With a whopping 500 million lines of code, according to a recent New York Times report, Kennedy believes fixing the site would probably take six months to a year.

But would-be Obamacare enrollees only have until Dec. 15 to sign up for coverage starting at the beginning of 2014. Nish Bhalla, CEO of information-security firm Security Compass, said it “does not sound realistic at all” that Healthcare.gov will be fully operational before that point.

“We don’t even know where all of the problems lie, so how can we solve them?” Bhalla said. “It’s like a drive-by shooting: You’re going fast and you might hit it, you might miss it. But you can’t fix what you can’t identify.”

Several computer engineers said it would likely be easier to rebuild Healthcare.gov than to fix the issues in the current system. But it’s unlikely that the government would toss out more than $300 million worth of work.

The sheer size of Healthcare.gov is indicative of a major rush job. Rolling the site out too quickly likely increased the number of errors, and that makes the fixes more difficult to implement.

“Projects that are done rapidly

( May I ask didn’t they have like 3 years to build this?)

usually have a lot of [repetitive] code,” said Arron Kallenberg, a software engineer and tech entrepreneur. “So when you have a problem, instead of debugging something in a single location, you’re tracking it down all through the code base.”

To put 500 million lines of code into perspective, it took just 500,000 lines of code to send the Curiosity rover to Mars. Microsoft’s

(MSFTFortune 500)

 Windows 8 operating system reportedly has about 80 million lines of code.

And an online banking system might feature between 75 million and 100 million lines.

A “more normal range” for a project like Healthcare.gov is about 25 million to 50 million lines of code, Kennedy said.

“The [500 million lines of code] says right off the bat that something is egregiously wrong,” said Kennedy. “I jumped back when I read that figure. It’s just so excessive.”

Applicants might be able to at least register for Obamacare sooner than that, even if the site isn’t 100% perfect. The New York Times report said five million lines of code need to be replaced just so the site can run properly.

But the Obamacare website has bigger problems than simply getting people registered for health care. The code is also riddled with security holes, according to Kennedy, who outlined his cybersecurity concerns on Trusted Sec’s company blog.

“If someone can’t register, that’s obviously bad –– but if the information gets hacked, you’re talking about one of the biggest breaches in American history,” Kennedy said. “I think security is an afterthought at this point.”

( The security and hacking is a story unto itself. It is very bad. I’ll do a follow up tomorrow)

That might not be a major issue now, as people are still having trouble logging onto the site. But once it’s up and running, that code had better be made more secure.

“At this point, the car isn’t even moving,” Bhalla said. “But once we’re speeding down the road, you’re going to want that seatbelt to work.” To top of page

Here is a graph to help you understand how much code is in things. The more code, the more things go wrong. KISS. Keep It Simple Stupid.

Media Bias: coverage of govt shutdown victims vs. Obamacare victims 100 to 1

Ministry of Truth

The Mainstream Media continue to be whores for President Lucifer.

The media’s coverage of “victims” of the recent federal government shutdown vs. their coverage of victims of Obamacare is a shocking ratio of 100 to 1.

Ben Shapiro reports for Truth Revolt, Oct. 17, 2013, that since October 1, when the government shutdown began, the media have run dozens upon dozens of stories about victims of the shutdown. Over the same period of time, the media have run virtually no stories about businesses suffering thanks to Obamacare, low-income people victimized by the new Obamacare tax, and economic chaos thanks to the impact of Obamacare.

The Washington Post was a key offender in its bias, with over 220 stories on the supposedly horrible effects of the government shutdown vs. only 3 stories on the individuals and small businesses victimized by Obamacare.

The New York Times ran well over 80 stories about victims of the government shutdown, but ran zero stories about those negatively affected by Obamacare.

The story was the same on television. From October 1 to October 15, ABC World News with Diane Sawyer spent approximately 21 minutes over the course of eight broadcasts covering stories of the shutdown and its effects on victims. Over the course of the same period, ABC News covered Obamacare twice, and then only to point out website difficulties quickly but praise Obamacare overall. There were no stories of victims of Obamacare in that entire period.

Brian Williams’ NBC Nightly News was no better. From October 1 to October 16, the program spent over 30 minutes discussing victims of the government shutdown. All Obamacare coverage was relegated to discussion of website glitches, but no actual victims of Obamacare were shown.

CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley had approximately 27 minutes worth of stories on government shutdown victims. Aside from segments about the Obamacare glitches, there were no stories about victims of Obamacare. There was a two minute segment about evil Republican governors who hadn’t expanded Medicaid under Obamacare, however. So much for Pelley’s “real consequences for real people”.

Overall, the Washington Post and New York Times covered victims of the government shutdown over victims of Obamacare by a margin of 100 to 1; ABC, NBC, and CBS News all covered victims of the government shutdown over victims of Obamacare by a margin of over 78 minutes to zero.


The Left approve of stealing your bank savings

Five days ago, on March 16, 2013, the people of Cyprus were told by the grand poobahs of the Eurozone that as much as 10% of the deposits in their personal bank accounts would be “levied”, in exchange for a $13 billion (€10 billion) bail-out of their heavily indebted country to avoid bankruptcy and a banking collapse.

Cyprus is a small island country in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea to the east of Greece, and a member of the European Union (EU). The Eurozone is an economic and monetary union of 17 EU member states that have adopted the euro (€) as their common currency and sole legal tender.

The Eurozone’s levy was contingent on the approval of the Cypriot parliament, but parliament resoundingly rejected the levy. Meanwhile, to prevent a bank run, banks in Cypriot will remain closed “until next week”, euphemistically called a “bank holiday”.

If you need the grave import of what happened clearly spelled out, here it is:

  1. Money in our personal bank accounts is PRIVATE PROPERTY.
  2. The proposed levy, therefore, is THEFT/ROBBERY.
  3. This is not just another “tax.” This bank levy is particularly pernicious because what is proposed is the seizure of privately-owned bank deposits that had been guaranteed by the government, much like the FDIC bank deposits in the United States. What value does such a guarantee have if it can be withdrawn at will without any advance notice?
  4. A “bank holiday” means you can’t gain access to YOUR OWN MONEY.
  5. Although Cypriot’s parliament rejected the levy, the damage is already done. The Rubicon has been crossed: the idea of “wealth taxation,” that is the involuntary confiscation of privately-owned property, has now been breached. Sure enough, faster than you can say “Jiminy Cricket,” the governments of two other countries — New Zealand and Spain — already are making similar levy noises.

In case you’re doubtful about what the Left here in America think of this theft, below are the approving comments made by the elite of the American Left, posted on Twitchy, March 18, 2013.
