Tomorrow’s Headlines (Loosely Based on Today’s)

Below, I provide an advance sampling of the mainstream news headlines you will be seeing over the next couple of days. I have deliberately omitted the opinion essays, which of course express bias by definition, in favor of limiting my survey to the unbiased, objective news reportage from the major sources. I hope this helps you sort out your reading priorities during this...

The Value of Fear

Fear makes us irrational. Fear makes us susceptible to poor arguments and dangerous “offers” that seem to promise relief from the pain of our terror. Fear causes us to choose rashly and pursue counterproductive courses of action. Fear makes us forget our real, adult interests, including our interests in other people, in favor of an aggressive form of self-absorption. Fear can make us...

Cuckoo Headline of the Day

Here’s a beauty from the New York Times’ understudy as official newspaper of international communism, The Washington Post: “Infectious Trump briefly leaves hospital to greet fans as confusion continues over his health.” It is obvious the Post is preparing readers for the formal attempted murder charges undoubtedly coming against Trump for knowingly endangering the lives of millions of Americans by daring to leave...

Trump family on death’s door

You heard it here first. Donald Trump is almost dead. Melania Trump is also nearly dead. Barron Trump, naturally, is dying too, along with every other person within a twelve mile radius of Donald Trump’s hair.  Yes, the horrifying truth is now out: Donald and Melania have tested positive for the Most Deadly Virus in the History of Pandemics. If we are even...

Headlines I Nearly Read Today

Trump admits he hid the virus because he thought it would only kill Democrats.

COVID-19 invades the brain, makes victims feel like they have a bad flu.

Biden promises if elected, he will mandate private isolation chambers for all Americans.

Polls show Biden now leading Trump by triple digits.

Telling Figures, Indeed

A shocking headline from CBS News informs us, or at least those few of us brave enough to face the hardest truths, that the “U.S. has more COVID cases than some countries have people.” Is this real, or some kind of sick joke? How is one supposed to sleep at night after being confronted with, let alone fully digesting, the sheer enormity of...

Headlines To Die For

Some prominent headlines I read today during a five-minute scan of the mainstream news media: “U.S. coronavirus death toll tops 130,000 amid surge” “Fauci: Avg. patient age has dropped by 15 years” “Atlanta mayor tests positive for coronavirus” “239 Experts With One Big Claim: The Coronavirus Is Airborne” “35-year-old bodybuilder with COVID-19 talks about near-death experience” “Formerly Robust Athlete Loses More Than 60...

Why don’t you do as you are told?

Headline I just read on MSN: “Masks seem to work, even as some refuse them.” Darned humans, always refusing to do as they are told. Perhaps if we condescend and preach to them long enough, and publicly shame them forcefully enough, they will finally learn how to comply.

Today’s Propaganda Roundup

A very quick swing around the interwebs to survey the latest “news,” i.e., totalitarian propaganda from public enemies who in a civilized world would be rejected from normal society as subversives and fomenters of leftist revolution, but today are almost universally adhered to as indispensable social resources. First up, and aptly so, here is a beauty from everyone’s favorite Marxist front group, The...

The Free Press, Capitalism, and Tyranny

As I have noted since the earliest days of The Pandemic that Ate a Planet, none of the hysteria of this season, and therefore none of the political fraud and usurpation we are seeing each day, would have been possible without the willing assistance and very able wheel-greasing of the mass media. We are witnessing the perfect alignment of all of the media’s...
