    But who is driving? The one thing I know for sure is that this revolution was birthed by the Victim Culture Cult who run our "elite" universities, they are the ones who have done the indoctrinations and and sent out their product to take over other institutions. However, since The New Chinese Empire could not write it up for themselves better if they tried I tend to suspect that they are the drivers....I mean I know how good the Chinese are....I have been watching China closely since the late 70's, I am trained in Zen and am a follower of the Tao. On the other hand I was close to the radical Left in the mid 80's when the plan to hijack k-12 education in order to train the young right was already well established, I dont remember people talking about China.

    Most of the good journalism is done by free agents. If it werenít for free lancers much of the violence in the streets over the summer would have gone unreported.

    Even well intentioned journalists work for a paycheck and are under the thumb of editors. The news readers on cable news have to stay in line and etc.

    That is why you are misinformed about both.

    Yup, Andy is a good example.

    He doesn’t work for a news organization that ‘has an angle’—he just films what’s in front of him.

    And then honestly tries to figure out WTF is going on.....then he tells us with as much clarity as he can manage what he has figured out.

    As usual, Trump started it then got his ass kicked by a woman.

    https://www.billboard.com/articles/c...-twitter-trend
    Pres. Trump has spent the past week stirring up a giant pot of beef with everyone from Will & Grace's Debra Messing to meteorologists and, on Sunday night, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen. Only the latter may have been the wrong hornet's nest to stick his hand into, since the celebrity couple happen to be very, very good at the internet.

    After Trump lashed the EGOT musician by calling him "boring" and didn't even name Teigen in a tweet in which he simply dubbed her Legend's "filthy mouthed wife" in a heated tweetspree in which he complained that he was not getting enough credit for his prison reform efforts, the model and Lip Sync Battle co-host shot back by referring to the twitterer in chief as "the pussy ass bitch president.

    And while the NSFW nickname was too filthy to trend on Twitter, clever users found a way to push it to the top of the day's trending topics by shortening it to #PresidentPAB. Check out some of the most fiery #PresidentPAB tweets below."


    #PresidentPAB wasn't the only Twitter-safe term. Another common one was #PABOTUS, a play on POTUS.
