NO EXCUSE NOW: Nancy Pelosi Wins Speaker, But Is Still Losing ‘Let’s Make A Deal’

Published

President Donald Trump gained even more collateral over Nancy Pelosi after the 78-year old Californian won her speakership election Thursday. Pelosi is still holding out on the $5 billion that Art of the Deal author President Donald Trump is demanding for his Wall, prompting a government shutdown that has reached thirteen days (but it hasn’t exactly been as dramatic as the Cuban Missile Crisis). Pelosi’s fatuous bills that don’t fund the Wall have no chance of being introduced in the Senate, according to Mitch McConnell’s spokesman.

Pelosi has no excuse now for holding out: she can no longer pitch the narrative that she is just trying to protect her position. So now, her opposition to the Wall very clearly stems from the place it has always stemmed from: the fact that she has no power in the globalist system and the progressive billionaires dictate her agenda.

How’s that for a talking point?

BABY: CNN’s Brian Stelter Becomes Early Adapter of New Twitter ‘Disable Replies’ Feature

The mainstream media operative doesn’t want feedback.

CNN presenter Brian Stelter has become a quick adopter of a new Twitter feature that enables users to shut down replies to their tweets, essentially cutting off any potential for negative feedback and allowing unpopular verified journalists to propagate their own echo chambers.

The feature was implemented on Thursday by Twitter, and was roundly criticized by many of the platform’s users as a betrayal of the free-speech and democratic ideals the website originally stood for. The feature essentially allows verified and artificially promoted mainstream media personalities to escape criticism for dishonest reporting, lies, and political bias.

Stelter utilized the feature in a tweet about business challenges to the model of traditional print and local media. It would’ve gone without saying that his narrative would’ve been challenged by many Twitter users keen to point out that the erosion of traditional print media has coincided with rampant left-wing and institutional bias within the industry.

Replies to the tweet are disabled, but many users found a way to ensure that Stelter’s lightweight media proclivities were responded to in kind by those who are critical of cable mainstream media. Users who Stelter follows are able to reply to the tweet, and some who he deems acceptable within his own echo chamber were keen to call him out.

It’s almost certain that CNN hacks such as Stelter will continue to use the anti-democratic and elitist feature, hoping to shield themselves from accusations of dishonesty.

We’ve entered a new dark age of the internet where the original late 1990’s principles of free expression, intellectual curiosity, and open dialogue are being eroded by political and media elites terrified that their neoliberal vision for society is quickly becoming discredited. The ‘disable replies’ feature on Twitter is merely the latest indicator of such a phenomenon, but self-proclaimed ‘objective journalists’ such as Stelter might not prove as able to shut down criticism of themselves as they might hope.
