BBC One’s limited series Years and Years tells the story of the Lyons family living in the United Kingdom between 2019 and 2034. Episode 1, which premiered in the United States on HBO on June 24, quickly shows us that President Trump will be reelected in 2020, but ends with the vision of Trump having just fired nuclear missiles at China.
A group of vigilantes, Los Vigilantes, in an eastside Los Angeles Latino neighborhood is not happy that the large outdoor mural on the side wall of Vida’s bar has been replaced with a Mexican beer ad. In the June 23 season two finale of the Starz show Vida, titled “Chapter 16,” the group targets two Latina sisters over the issue of gentrification.
Throughout NBC Nightly News’s two-week-long propaganda project for the 2020 Democratic field ahead of the first debate, a couple of the candidates actually suggested some half decent and probably generally supported ideas: fighting drug addiction and ending the practice of regime change overseas. These ideas tend to transcend party. So much so that these were actually ideas that President Trump supported.
Vice President Mike Pence appeared on State of the Union Sunday, where host Jake Tapper obsessed over climate change. Channeling his inner Al Gore, Tapper repeatedly used the alarmist and emotionally charged phrase “climate emergency” as he attempted to expose the Vice President as what Joy Behar would call a “climate change denier” multiple times.
The front page of Sunday’s New York Times featured Denver-based national correspondent Julie Turkewitz demonstrating hostility to private property and the dismayingly conservative billionaires who own it in “As Billionaires Snap Up Open Land in West, Public Is Fenced Out." She sounded skeptical about this odd "private property" concept: "These new buyers have become a symbol of a bigger problem: The gentrification of the interior West....The concept of private property is embedded in the nation’s framework, and many large landowners cite this as the foundation for their holdings."
On Monday morning’s airing of CNN’s New Day, host Alisyn Camerota spoke with President Trump’s latest sexual assault accuser, author E. Jean Carroll. Carroll, who was on the show to promote her new book, detailed the account to Camerota. Camerota pushed Carroll to implicate Trump many times, and repeatedly led Carroll down a narrative that she wanted told.
Vermont Senator and Democratic presidential candidate has released his latest plan to
bribe people into voting for him address student loan debt. The radical plan calls for the elimination of the $1.6 trillion in student loan debt across the country plus college free tuition to be paid for by a tax on Wall Street. There are multiple problems with the plan, but the one that Monday's edition of MSNBC Live with Hallie Jackson homed on was that the plan might be seen as a betrayal of Sanders' crusade to address income inequality.
Madonna seems to enjoy showing off her ignorance of Christian beliefs. Last week, the self-proclaimed “Israelite” singer asserted that Jesus would be pro-abortion. Last night, the “Like A Virgin” singer posted a picture of herself -- wearing nothing but a black lace bra and fishnets -- with a statue of the Virgin Mary on her Instagram. The Virgin covered Madonna’s cleavage.
President Trump reportedly called off last weekend’s planned Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids as part of a strategy to ratchet up the pressure on congressional Democrats to change the country’s asylum laws. But Monday’s evening newscasts of ABC and NBC gave the credit to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) because she claimed she told the President he was “scaring the children of America” with the raids.
Sunday’s edition of the NBC Nightly News Democratic-propaganda campaign featured the so-called “Big Idea” from Montana Governor Steve Bullock, despite the fact he failed to meet the requirements to make it onto the first primary debate stage. Bullock’s “Big Idea” was “ending dark money spending in our elections” and to crack down on the First Amendment right to free speech via political donations.
New on June 24: On Monday’s Morning Joe, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinksi held the Trump administration culpable for the treatment of children at the border, going so far as to impugn Vice President Mike Pence as a liar and “pathetic.” Scarborough charged: “Children being treated like terrorists at an interrogation camp.”
It seems as of late, the preferred tactic among liberals and the media is to brand any policy idea that they fundamentally disagree with as on par with the atrocity of the Holocaust. From CNN host Don Lemon comparing President Trump to Hitler to Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez referring to detention centers on the southern border as “concentration camps.” While many rush to condemn these outlandish claims, others have the temerity to defend them.
Friday night on MSNBC’s The Last Word, host Lawrence O’Donnell showed his support for Trump accuser E. Jean Carroll. Carroll accused President Trump of raping her in a department store in 1995, in an article that came out in New York Magazine Friday. O’Donnell and the liberal media quickly ate up the allegations without any skepticism, with O’Donnell spending over half of his hour-long program on the story.
On June 21, New York Magazine published a story by journalist E. Jean Carroll accusing President Trump of rape. The incident occured more than two decades ago. Even though the media has jumped on every sexual misconduct allegation against Trump, journalists have been relatively mum about Carroll’s violent story. Despite the media’s doubt, Hollywood celebrities were quick to condemn Trump as a vicious serial rapist.
Veteran Univision anchor Jorge Ramos continues to gush over U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, in direct conflict with the persona he has purportedly built over the past few years (the Trump years, if you will) of being a proponent and defender of the kind of journalism that must, in order to be pure, remain in direct opposition to power.
