Behind The Madonna (Biden) Whore (Trump) Syndrome

CBS Sunday Morning Host Jane Pauley, in a lilting voice, told her audience that it literally needs to know that Democrat President Joe Biden met his wife, Jill, on a blind date and proposed five times before she said yes.

In a later segment, former GOP President Donald J. Trump was relentlessly vilified by the “journalist” who covered him at the White House, CBS News senior national correspondent Ben Tracy. Trump was called the “Disrupter in Chief.” Tracy couldn’t find anything to like about Trump, who received 75 million votes in the past election.

The Whopper

Jill Biden’s first husband was Bill Stevenson and he claims he and his wife met Joe Biden in 1972, when they worked on then-New Castle County Councilman Biden’s first campaign for the Senate  Stevenson said the story about Joe and Jill’s meeting on a “blind date” is pure fiction. He says they had an affair and the betrayal led to the painful (for him) end to their marriage.

We might all agree that it’s nobody’s business how the Bidens’ met but it is our business when we are continually told bold faced lies about the circumstances of their meeting by the mainstream media.

Why don’t CBS and other national media outlets just stay silent about how the Bidens met? Why do they even bring it up? How can they justify lying to the American public this way?

Who Really Killed Parler?

It is ironic that an opinion piece in The Washington Post this week argued in favor of regulating companies that dominate our communication infrastructure.

The author, Zephyr Teachout, defended Twitter’s decision to ban President Donald J. Trump from its platform but expressed concern about the threat of “extreme concentration” of corporate power in communications.

Now here’s where irony comes in:

Teachout didn’t mention (understandably) that the owner of the newspaper that hosted her column is Jeff Bezos, who also owns Amazon and its subsidiary, Amazon Web Services (AWS), the leading cloud hosting provider in the country. Bezos is undeniably a dominant force – perhaps the dominant force – in communications and communications’ infrastructure in the United States.

AWS calls itself “the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform… ” It hosts Twitter, Facebook and Linked in, as well as Neflix, ESPN, BBC, Dow Jones, Reddit, Hearst Corp., Turner Broadcasting, top U.S. agencies, (i.e. Department of State and the Food and Drug Administration) and many others.

After Twitter knocked the President off the internet, conservatives flocked by the tens of thousands to Parler, which offers similar services with an emphasis on free speech. Twitter’s stock plunged by seven percent and the Parler app skyrocketed to the top of app store charts.

AWS abruptly “suspended” its provision of cloud hosting services to Parler on Jan. 9, claiming Parler was used to coordinate the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol building. Parler states in an antitrust lawsuit filed against AWS on Wednesday that no one who has been publicly identified in the Jan. 6 incident even has a Parler account. And yet, Parler has gone completely dark.

It Seems Jeff Bezos Killed Parler

U.S. Courts Said To Abet Monopolies and Unfair Competition

The U.S. Courts were sharply criticized this week by a bipartisan subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee for essentially undermining federal antitrust laws through the use of procedural obstacles and unfair legal doctrines.

The Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial and Administrative Law issued a report stating that in the decades since the U.S. Congress enacted antitrust laws “the courts have significantly weakened these laws and made it increasingly difficult for federal antitrust enforcers and private plaintiffs to successfully challenge anticompetitive conduct and mergers.”

By adopting a “narrow” definition of consumer welfare as the sole goal of antitrust laws, the report states, the U.S. Supreme Court “limited the analysis of competitive harm to focus primarily on price and output rather than the competitive process – contravening legislative history and legislative intent.”

An email request for comment sent to the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts was not acknowledged.

The subcommittee also blasted Congress itself for failing to step in and correct court rulings adverse to the plain language of antitrust laws. In the past, the report states, Congress regularly investigated the rise and abuse of market power but its attention in recent years has “fallen short” in the face of “ferocious opposition” from lobbyists.
