So What Else Is New?

This is a somewhat rambling, stream of consciousness post, but please bear with me. There is a thread running through it that connects the dots (more or less...).

Our crackerjack mainstream media is doing its usual bang-up job of keeping the nation informed on significant stories that will have a major impact on our lives. Some examples:

Last week a story was quietly leaked revealing that despite the best efforts of racist Attorney General Eric Holder and raciist President barack hussein obama, no federal charges will be filed against former Ferguson, MO. police officer Darren Wilson in the fatal shooting of (alleged) 'gentle giant' Michael Brown.

In contrast to the riots that followed a similar decision by local authorities to not charge Wilson, there was little reaction from the professional victim SJW community.

No doubt this was due to the latest 'Storm of the Century' that has paralyzed much of the Northeast.

Oh, wait...
It’s official: Winter Storm Juno is a total dud.

Despite countless warnings from the National Weather Service (and non-stop coverage by network and cable news channels) and nearly every form of mass transit being shut down Monday night, the Blizzard of 2015 was anything but.

However, never let it be said that New Yorkers let an opportunity to indulge in booze and sex go to waste.
Faced with predictions of a snow-pocalypse, New Yorkers partied like there was no tomorrow, weathering the storm with booze-laden bar trips and snow-inspired hookups.

Fashion website Lyst said customers were clamoring for pric​e​y unmentionables just before the snowfall — with hits for Agent Provocateur lingerie and other sexy under-things increasing by more than 500 percent between the weekend and Monday.

Meanwhile the Z Deli in Hell’s Kitchen sold far more condoms than usual to snowbound city folk planning to get lucky.

Several people even took to Craigslist in hopes of hooking up with a blizzard snuggle buddy.
Now please excuse me. I have to go wade through a bunch of stories about how the Oscars are racist, not to mention watching barry be interviewed by YouTube morons.
President Obama was asked about his ‘first wife’ in a PR-disaster interview on Thursday after picking three of the most popular YouTube content creators to interview him.

GloZell Green, a popular YouTube fixture known for her extreme acts like eating a ladle full of cinnamon, offered the president three samples of her trademark green lipstick as gifts for his daughters – and for the woman she called Obama’s ‘first wife.’

Another YouTube star, 19-year-old Bethany Mota, asked the leader of the free world, ‘If you had any super power, what would it be?’
This is the creature named GloZell that obama spent time being interviewed by.
 And this is the guy who insists he is too busy to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu?

Which one would you prefer to be the leader of your country?

To recap:
• Clashes between Israelis and Palestinians are on the rise.

• Vast regions of Iraq and Syria are under control of Islamic extremists bent on establishing a retrograde caliphate.

• The death of King Abdullah in Saudi Arabia could cause ripples in the traditionally stable nation regarded as the heart and pocketbook of the Sunni Arab world.

• The capital of Yemen is under control of supposedly Iran-backed Shiite rebels while Iran itself – perhaps the biggest supporter of global terrorism – is widely believed to be mere months away from completing its first nuclear bomb.

These are, to paraphrase Michael Douglas in The American President, serious problems that need serious people to solve them.

And what is the actual American president doing? Sitting down for an “interview” with a comedian best known for wearing green lipstick.

When he’s not fielding softball questions from fawning B-list celebrities and pushing his redistributionist domestic policies, he’s busy snubbing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the head of America’s most steadfast ally in the Middle East. The White House said this week that Obama does not plan to meet with Netanyahu when the Israeli leader is in Washington on March 3 to address Congress.

Congress is weighing legislation to impose new sanctions on Iran if the administration’s flaccid negotiations fail to keep the rogue state from acquiring a nuclear weapon.

President Obama has said he’d veto any harsh sanctions, lest they derail his as-yet-unproductive attempts at diplomacy.

It’s beyond disappointing to see the commander-in-chief bending over backward to appease and mollify Tehran while giving the brush-off to the head of the region’s only democracy – the very democracy Iranian hardliners have, on more than one occasion, vowed to destroy.

And, by the way, it wasn’t even the White House who invited Netanyahu to the United States. It was House Speaker John Boehner. Hats off to him. Somebody should be reaching out to Israel, and it’s too bad it wasn’t our chief executive.

It’s as if the Obama administration is living in the comic-book Bizzaro World when it comes to foreign policy. Everything is backward. Friends are treated like enemies, enemies are treated like friends, and our president seems to put the interests of our adversaries ahead of our own.
The promised thread that connects the dots?

The failure of the mainstream media to impartially report the facts on issues that significantly impact our lives.

So what else is new?

No thought, just rambling ... and you're right, I've gotten very fed up with the way things are going lately.
