Why The News Is Fake, And Liberals Rely On Racism

Published

8 minute read

Love him or hate him, President Trump has woken the masses to the truth that the news is often inaccurate, and occasionally blatantly false.  When called out, reporters wail in their feeble response, “It was an honest mistake, and we retracted it!”  The truth is, the news media have little interest in being accurate or unbiased, instead their goal is to procure ratings for the purpose of receiving advertising revenue. Profit is their master. 

By analyzing data from Google and Youtube, we now know scientifically what we have always assumed anecdotally, “If it bleeds, it leads”.  Violence and catastrophe has always been the driving factor in editorial decision making. As a result, mildly unfortunate events are made to  appear as if they are massive catastrophe’s and in the absence of a convenient cataclysm, shocking events are occasionally staged.  The news is not “reporting the facts”, it’s info-tainment.  The news NEEDS you to be either outraged or terrified in order for you to tune in and consume the media.  If you don’t consume…then they don’t have a business model.  Keeping you angry and afraid is how they make money, which is why they will assassinate the character of anyone who dares to contradict their story line. They have to attack in order to survive. 

State sponsored news such as RT, or the CBC are not any better. In addition to catering to their advertisers, they also have to appease the governments who fund them.  If either Putin or Trudeau need help from their state run broadcasters, …they get it. Media CEO’s know who butters their bread, and they know how to keep their high paid cushy jobs.  If you’re looking to the news for the truth, you’re looking in the wrong place. 

Mainstream media is dying.  The information monopoly which provides the media with breath is being choked to death by the free flow of information on the internet. No longer do people rely on being force fed their information by those with questionable motives. Instead, we all have alternative sources available in abundance. 

Podcasts, and independent news commentators have supplanted the paternalistic talking heads we are accustomed to seeing, anchoring the evening news.  VIA the internet, sagely voices from the wilderness have found their way to the mountain tops to expound their wisdom to eager ears, which has the media backed into a corner and fighting for it’s life. 

And now for the rest of the headline…

Those with aligned goals tend to be friends.  If I help you, and you help me…then our symbiotic relationship is something that we will both endeavor to protect at all costs. The media and leftest politicians coexist with such a relationship. 

Leftist identity politics is a one-trick pony which relies on outrage for it’s very existence.  Their brand identity is steeped in the fight against racism and inequality. Though it has a noble face, this strategy wasn’t born out of altruism.  Liberal politicians recognized long ago that if they could be seen as avengers of civil rights, that they could win a lot of votes…and until recently, the strategy has worked quite well.

Racism in North America has been on a dramatic decline since the late 1980’s.  Racist jokes which were once acceptable to share around the campfire, or in the locker room are now received with shock and disdain…and rightly so.  Could you imagine if the Brocket 99 Cassette tape was made today?  The backlash would be immense, the creators would be publicly flogged, and the news would be covered globally. Racist parody is no longer tolerated, and minstrel shows are extinct.  As society has progressed, leftist politicians have lost leverage.  Now that racism has been largely eradicated…what possible strategy could the leftist parties possibly use to retain their power?  Far left politicians NEED racism to be a problem so that they can be the hero’s, so where there is a vacuum, they will find a way to fill it. 

Bigotry, misogyny and homophobia are all unacceptable anymore, as they should be. This however has created a big problem for politicians whose entire political platforms have been branded as being the saviors of the oppressed, so as these issues became less prevalent, climate change has helped to fill the void.  Once again, a valid issue is being used not because of a sense of environmental responsibility, but instead because there needs to be a boogeyman under the bed.  But still, the cries of racism ring out across the land at the slightest provocation.  

Of course racism is still an issue of sorts, but it’s nothing like it was fifty years ago, and to pretend otherwise is a slap in the face to all those who have suffered through the horrors of it. 

Racism is an issue today, because liberal politicians and the media need it to be a problem.  Both fuel the flames of hatred and division, then blame conservatives as the propagators as is seen in example after example.  Fortunately people are waking up to the fact that most news is nothing more than lefitst propaganda.  #Blexit, and #walkaway are gaining steam, and the liberal grip on our society is starting to slip, which they find terrifying. 

To fight back, riots have been encouraged, and even indirectly funded by the Democratic party, all in an attempt to destabilize society, and claw back their power and influence.  There are no lengths they will not stoop to in order to regain control, and the media is largely in lock-step. 

Before you decide to attend a protest, or throw a brick in a riot, ask yourself who it is that you are actually fighting for.  Chances are, your fighting for the wrong people without knowing it.

Hotels Live – History In The Making For Calgary Music Fans

Published on

You read that right. When we talk about ‘disrupting the space’ from an innovation perspective, we think of new-to-market technology, products or software that in some way the consumer would benefit without that person first identifying the challenge or the solution. This is something different.

Hotels and live music have coincided for decades in various tourist destinations around the world, but never in history have they coincided for Calgarians.

Hotels Live, a welcomed new venture that combines the experience of a hotel stay with the live music industry here in Alberta. Founded by award-winning Canadian music industry veteran Rob Cyrynowski. In collaboration with the Ramada Plaza Calgary, Livestar Entertainment Canada and Canadian ticketing company Showpass, they have combined the experience to be a one-stop shop for music lovers of all genres. 

To offer a brief summary, Hotels Live is hosting live music in the pool deck area of the Ramada Plaza Calgary. These concerts can be viewed from your own hotel room balcony while you stay socially distant and mitigate any risk for entering large crowds. Rightly so, as we make the shift to mandatory mask-wearing inside public spaces.

This gives local artists an opportunity to entertain their fans through a unique new experience, Hotels Live will continue to promote artists and be the winds of change well needed in our community. 

We spoke with Marnie Crowe, Director of Sales and Revenue for the Ramada Plaza Calgary to get her thoughts on this new partnership. 

“There is the opportunity for this to be something in addition to the traditional viewing experience. We are learning that there are a lot of people who have not been able to go to a venue for a long time for a variety of reasons. We want this to be a long term additional experience for those who are looking for something new even when we as a community get back to traditional live shows.” 

 

 

Upcoming Shows

August 7th, 7:00 pm – CCMA nominated festival, Diesel Bird Hotel Music Festival 

“The world’s first hotel music festival featuring some of today’s most exciting Canadian country artists, nominee for the Country Festival, Fair or Exhibition of the Year Award by the CCMA” 

Ticket Information

 

August 15th, 7:00 pm – Rock Double-Bill BC/DC & Brokentoyz

“Double-Bill Rock Concert featuring both BC/DC (High Voltage Rock N’ Roll) & Broken Toyz – (80’s Hair Metal)”

Ticket Information

 

September 5th, 7:00 pm – A Celebration of Love Drag Show

“In celebration of the 30th Anniversary of Calgary Pride and presented by Plain Jane Events, guests will experience the very first Hotel Balcony Drag Show in history.”

Ticket Information

 

As we continue to support local businesses as a community, a major focus has been to promote local tourism in our own community. Marnie offers an additional perspective in line with this focus. 

“We will continue to support local artists and the live music industry here in Calgary. With it being a hotel experience, it does offer the opportunity to extend your stay for an entire weekend rather than just the night of the show, allowing you to explore other parts of the downtown core that you have yet to discover.”

Alberta now sits at the children’s table?

Published on

It was but a few years ago, I felt that Alberta was sitting at the adult table. We were participating in adult conversations, looking for adult solutions to adult issues. Not anymore.

Not only does it seem like we are sitting at the children’s table, but a table of some other generation and I would go so far as possibly,  the table of some backward southern state.

In those same states, would they be insulted if you said they were like Alberta?

Investors, bankers, shareholders, fund managers and others are looking to invest in the future. Alberta appears to be only interested in the past investments.

Science, intellectuals, and human compassion are secondary to oil and gas. Disclosure: I made a lot of money in the O&G sector. The future is not oil & gas, though it is a vital industry it is only a sector of the economy and not “THE” economy.

I have contacts across this country, and I notice the nuances that suggest Alberta is sitting at the children’s table.

The fighting with doctors, nurses, teachers, environmentalists, high tech developers, arts & entertainment sectors, make life appear untenable for investors and professionals.

If you moved your company to Alberta, will the employees follow or stay behind with their education, health and recreational needs met?

Will you have to hire new employees and move them to Alberta? Will these employees be on the move when they start having children?

I talk to one Albertan who said she loved her community until her child turned 5. Another Albertan said she had an awakening when her career took her out of Alberta. One former Albertan laughed when I mentioned working remotely, at home, in Alberta. He said he couldn’t because he still needed to talk to other professionals.

In such a short time, I get the feeling that Alberta has been relegated to the children’s table.

Will we make it back to the adult table, or is that wishful thinking? Probably, at least for now.
