The meme war continues to twist and turn mere days into 2017, and Trump continues to ravage the Left at trans-dimensional backgammon. I know, I know; ascribing Trump’s broadsides to 4-D chess is overused and generally a big-if-true kind of deduction, but hear me out.
The mainstream media came up with the “fake news” moniker to describe the horribly bad clickbait outlets that were posting sensationalized lies on real-ish sounding URLs during the 2016 election. For example, if you read that Hillary Clinton had been arrested from a site with a URL like abcnewsnow(.)com, and then proceeded to share it on Facebook and Twitter, you got pranked. A lot of low-information conservatives, especially boomers, had a propensity for consuming fake news, and discrediting those blatantly false sources thus also served to discredit the politics of the people who were reading them.
Because perception matters more than reality, the ideology of those baited was ridiculed as something as stupid as its lowest-information followers. The meme became that Trump voters were a bunch of village idiots being fed a steady diet of fake news from Russian shills, or something like that. But liberals expanded fake news to include just about anything conservatives believed about Clinton, terrorism, illegal immigration, etc. In doing so they created their own fake news mindset, where truth mattered far less than weaponized perceptions.
But those people lost; Trump won. And now he’s beginning to turn the screws on them. At his first press conference this year, he rejected the questioning of a mewling CNN reporter, labeling the outlet as “fake news.” The linguistic kill-shot has returned. Just as the patriots melted down statues of the king to make ammunition, Trump has taken the Left’s memes away from them.
Archetypal numale journalist Christopher Hayes tweeted his reaction succinctly: “Congratulations everyone who ironically used fake news. You won. Lol nothing matters. Epistemic nihilism 4eva.”
Indeed. Fake news is not originally Trump’s phrase, but he is going to own it now. We’re not in “post-truth” politics, we’ve just finally arrived at the logical conclusion of all this postmodernist deconstructionist bullshit. That is to say, anything is true and false.
Fake news is now something the Right can use to attack with. When CNN and Buzzfeed promoted (un)intelligence agency leaks that claimed Trump hired prostitutes to urinate on him in Moscow, they went off the deep end. Watersportsgate is not going to stop the inauguration; it’s fake news. Only diehard anti-Trump election deniers really buy into it. More incredibly, this fake news plays into the scatological obsessions of the very same people who shriek at the terms “lying press” and “America First.” Obviously, whoever came up with this was a Weimar deviant:
However, there were other aspects to TRUMP’s engagement with the Russian authorities. One which had borne fruit for them was to exploit personal obsessions and sexual perversion in order to obtain suitable kompromat [compromising material] on him. According to Source D, where s/he had been present, (perverted) conduct in Moscow included hiring the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton Hotel, where he knew President and OBAMA [whom he hated] had stayed on one of their official trips to Russia, and deriling [sic, probably scan-to-text error] the bed where they had slept by employing a number of prostitutes to perform a ‘golden showers’ (urination) show in front of him. The hotel was known to be under FSB control with microphones and concealed cameras in all the main rooms.
How long before Trump gets labeled anti-Semitic (again) for using fake news as a synonym for luegenpresse? Because that is how he is meme-ing this. Trump, it seems, did not care in the slightest about the original usage; he took a familiar buzzword and re-purposed it. Fake news now means media outlets that put out anti-Trump hit pieces while claiming to be unbiased. Functionally, he is being as vicious to the press as he was before, but now he is using their own slander against them. And it is use that assigns meaning in our deconstructed world and not form, not any innate or inherent essence. Try as they might to argue that Trump is #NotMyPresident, they cannot strip his office of its power over perception. If the President of the United States says something—right or wrong, earnestly or in bad faith, true or false—the world listens.
This is quantum jenga. Trump is taking their meme and leaving them with Pissgate. This is going to seriously discredit them (or it should). Trump should instruct his administration to refuse access to these kinds of outlets. CNN literally confirmed for Buzzfeed tier. Look at how fake you are. I’ll bet you won’t even engage in self-criticism.
The fake news meme will become the property of the Right, bigly. Liberals are not going to use Trumpisms, words and expressions fouled by the stain of fascist Nazi white supremacist patriarchy. When they protest that you are Literally Hitler™ for using the term “fake news,” give them a friendly wave and remind them just who started this. We’ll be exchanging that pawn for a queen, thank you very much.The above was reprinted from Atlantic Centurion.

“FAKE NEWS SITES ARE DRIVING ME CRAZY!”
Yesterday, a garbage-filled, liberal website posted lies, misinformation and libel in a weak, vulgar attempt to slander our incoming President. The progressive cable network, CNN, jumped on board immediately and spent their day on air slandering Donald Trump and others.
Today, President-Elect Donald Trump held his first press conference since winning the Presidency last November 8th. Where was the candidate Donald Trump who had responded rapidly to insults and was more excitable, boisterous and insulting? He was not needed.
Today, the American people saw the wisdom in their decision to make Donald Trump America’s 45th President.
His intelligence, grasp of issues and calm manner deflated the media.
Their tactic has been muckraking, repeatedly throwing lies, half-truths and questions at politicians. Their strategy was that if you repeat something frequently enough, the non-thinking, non-analytic audience would believe the lies and innuendos. Using that tactic and strategy, elite politicians in America’s recent history lost and the elite media won. Politicians would stumble over words, utter things never meant to be said and on occasion, unintentionally speak truth.
But, Donald Trump was the Conductor today.
The media’s ignorance of the United States Constitution and her laws became glaringly clear when they had no questions about what President-elect Trump is doing to distance himself from the magnificent, all-American enterprise that he has built.
The attorney with Morgan, Lewis and Bockius shut them down by citing the original law and its amendment that clearly states that United States Presidents are not required to separate themselves from their businesses and financial holdings as other, elected officials must. She then outlined all of the non-required steps our new President is taking to show Americans that his energy and actions for the next eight years will focus on what is good for the American people and to “Make America Great Again”.
At the event’s conclusion, Mr. Trump said that after eight years, he will review his enterprise and either say, “Good job!” to his surrogates or say “You’re fired!”
The media will eventually learn, or not, that events like today’s and Donald Trump’s tweets are what Americans are using and will continue to use to evaluate the 45th President.
We no longer need the lying mainstream media with its fake news to tell us what to believe. What we hear or read and what it means need no longer be filtered to us through the distorting lens of the mainstream media. Sooner rather than later, Americans are likely to tell this mendacious media, “YOU’RE FIRED!”
The media came into that press conference with muckraking as their intended goal. Instead, they were given their comeuppance and raked over the coals by our new President.
Good job, Mr President! Happy 2017-2024!

“Pizzagate”—The Dark Side of Politics
This article contains highly disturbing subject matter that should not be read by children. Sensitive readers are advised to exercise appropriate caution. Late last year, allegations of ritualistic pedophilia involving top Democrats began surfacing online. AFP writer Ronald Ray looks into these charges. Another case of fake news, or could it be true?
By Ronald L. Ray
Why are the mainstream media and governments in the U.S. and Europe suddenly obsessed with crushing “fake news,” as though it were the use of a nuclear weapon by terrorists? Is it really about Russia trying to influence American elections? Is it even really about alternative media allegedly influencing someone to fire rifle shots in a purported family pizza restaurant in Washington, D.C.? Or is it really about covering up activities of powerful and influential people?
The Russia “hacking” story is a ruse, seeking to deflect from the likely criminal content of thousands of emails from the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, released by WikiLeaks just before last November’s election. Even the unsupported “fake news” allegation about “Pizzagate” is a deception to mislead entertainment-obsessed Americans, whose political memory lasts about 15 minutes.
All but forgotten is that the revelation at the beginning of November 2016 that Hillary Clinton and others were potentially involved in sex crimes against children originated, not with Russia or WikiLeaks, but with a New York City Police Department investigation into pervert politician Anthony Weiner’s illicit activities with minor children.
Emails on Weiner’s computer seemingly pointed to involvement by Clinton, her campaign manager, John Podesta, et al., in satanic “spirit cooking” and possible ritual sexual abuse of children. Donald Trump’s nominee-to-be for national security advisor, Gen. Mike Flynn, even posted it on Twitter.
Then WikiLeaks revealed the Clinton presidential campaign emails, demonstrating evidence of large-scale money-laundering and bribery—and some very peculiar activities of Podesta and his family and friends.
A number of Podesta’s emails revealed adults excited over “pizza” and “hot dog” parties. One email exchange was about a swimming pool party involving three minor children as young as “about seven” brought over as “entertainment.” “Pizza,” “hot dogs,” and other food terms seem to be code language. Some messages do not make sense otherwise.
The seemingly frequent appearance of such words suggests either a lot of wealthy pizza addicts or that Podesta and his associates consciously employed terms well-known to have sexual connotations among homosexuals and other perverts.
Here are a few of the double-meanings: hot dog = boy; pizza = girl; cheese = little girl under six; pasta = little boy under six; ice cream = male prostitute; walnut or nuts = person of color or infant girl genitalia; map = semen; sauce = orgy.
So why did one email author consider “ice cream” “serious business,” warning against connecting that word and “free” together? Why would Susan Sandler write with concern to Podesta, “The realtor found a handkerchief (I think it has a map that seems pizza-related. Is it yorus? [sic]” Either Podesta wrote a street map on a handkerchief, or something more disturbing is being communicated, like a reference to evidence from a satanic sex ritual.
Why was Todd Stern “dreaming about [Podesta’s] hotdog stand in Hawaii?” Why did Tony Podesta send his brother, John, an email saying, “Last night was fun” and “Still in torture chamber?” Why did Andrew Breitbart in 2011 accuse Podesta of being an “underage sex slave op[eration] cover-upperer? [sic]”
Ties emerged to James Alefantis, a Washington, D.C., restaurateur who owns Comet Ping Pong, an alleged family-oriented pizzeria. The business name employs sexual code words, while the bathrooms, until recently, had creepy, satanic and sexually-themed “art” painted on the walls, including a symbol used by child-rapists.
Alefantis is a notorious homosexual disturbingly obsessed with children, demonstrated by bizarre photos on his Instagram account. The same account also featured several grotesque, essentially pornographic images. One showed a toddler girl with her hands bound by tape to a table. Alefantis was once listed by GQ magazine as the 49th most powerful person in D.C. Really? Granted, he is a major Democrat fundraiser, but is something more at work here? Is Alefantis pimping children to Washington’s elite?
The Podesta emails are not unique. The Spotlight helped the late FBI agent, Ted Gunderson, to expose a satanic child-rape operation at the highest government levels.
WikiLeaks exposed similar “pizza” emails from private intelligence firm Stratfor. The British government has tried for years to prevent full exposure of child-rape operations among its elites, immigrants, and soccer teams, while similar diabolical deviancy has been revealed in Israel, France, Germany, Norway, Hollywood, the CIA, and elsewhere. Barack Obama had a private “pizza/dogs” party at the White House.
The Podesta emails, which have been verified, do not prove a satanic child-rape operation, but they do provide significant circumstantial evidence. If President-elect Donald Trump wants to “drain the D.C. swamp,” he needs to start here, with a nationwide law enforcement investigation of those involved and of decades of half-whispered accounts of the rich and powerful of the U.S. raping and murdering children.
Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions should prosecute all involved—even if it is the likes of Congress, the Bushes, Clintons, Obamas, Podestas, and even Trumps of the world. The countless children who have been ritually raped and sacrificed demand justice.
