Doug’s Rant

Media Sickness:

Maybe it’s my sickness for being so ticked off at the TV networks, yelling at the screen like they can hear me, scaring my dog and getting strange looks from my wife. A headline in the LA Times read, “Has Trump gone too far now?” My thought is: have the five Hillary, Obama, Biden loving and Trump hating TV networks gone too far this time? If you ask me, any ounce of journalistic professionalism they may have had are as long gone as the Dodgers’ Kenley Jansen’s lights out fast ball which has disappeared (Just in time for the playoffs).

These pathetic pieces of bias networks have never shown their true colors more vividly than last Sunday morning’s shows that were all Trump and all Ukraine all the time. Unless I missed it, nary a word was said about Biden’s obvious corrupted deeds with his son and Ukraine.

What really torques my shorts is the number of times they have covered the absolute corruptness of the Obama administration when it comes to Mrs. Bill Clinton’s felonious email destroying and the attempted coup by the Obama administration to keep Trump from taking office. The number of times I remember seeing coverage on those scandals is precious few.

But when they get a whiff of something that just may hurt Trump they are all over it like a narcissist who is blind to the need for balance in their life. The problem with such a lack of dignified, professional news coverage is it unfairly sways folks who only watch those shows into a misguided notion of realty, and that is totally unacceptable for professional journalism. So what do I do? Keep yelling at TV I guess, because nothing is going to change; so I may as well vent to help maintain some semblance of sanity.


Speaking of Biden:

For those of you who don’t keep score at home on this stuff, let me provide you with a glimpse of what our Vice President at the time has been documented to pulling off.

Biden’s son, Hunter, formed a business partnership with John Kerry’s stepson, and another friend who was a former roommate, to start their own private equity firm. Obama selected Vice President Biden to be the point person for Ukraine foreign policy and before you knew it Biden’s son’s company was in a partnership with the Ukraine’s largest oil company. Hunter Biden was paid huge amounts of money for consulting fees even though he had no experience in energy or natural gas and no background in Ukraine’s inner energy workings. He didn’t even speak the language. Was it just a coincidence V.P. Biden orchestrated $1.8 billion to aid Ukraine around the same time?

Wait, it gets better: Later on V.P. Biden became aware of Ukraine investigating his son for the apparent corrupt business arrangement. At the same time he was authorized to grant another $1 billion in the form of a loan guarantee to Ukraine and held a press conference to announce it. I’ll let Uncle Joe tell you in his own words what happened next.

“They were walking out to a press conference. I said, nah, … we’re not going to give you the billion dollars. They said, ‘You have no authority. You’re not the president.’ …I said, call him. I said, I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said you’re not getting the billion. … I looked at them and said, ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor (who was investigating his son) is not fired, you’re not getting the money.’ Well, son of a bitch. He got fired.”

 I’ve read the transcript of Trump’s conversation with Ukrainian president, that has the Dems springing into impeachment action, I just don’t see it coming close at all to the crap Biden pulled helping and protecting his son back then. To use Trump’s conversation with the guy as a means for impeachment is just another indication of a two-freaking-tiered justice system that goes against every grain of what our forefathers envisioned for this country.

House Launches Impeachment Inquiry:

Of course that was the headline a few days ago, and it is making me bat-crap-crazy. Now every Democrat in the nation is full of Christmas-like joy as they foam at the mouth with thoughts of removing Trump from the Whitehouse. What a waste of our resources and distraction from real life problems the Dems don’t give a rip about! Those intelligent humans on the left side of the aisle have to realize their chances of getting this done in the Senate are slim to none, but they don’t care. At the very least they want to use the inquiry as a campaign weapon for 2020.

Most of my bat-crap-craziness results from what came out of the mouth of Nancy Pelosi who exclaimed, “The President must be held accountable; no one is above the law.” Oh yeah, Nancy — is the same true regarding Hillary Clinton and her deleted emails, Joe Biden’s corrupt dealings with Ukraine, members of Obama’s Cabinet, the Justice Department and the FBI who illegally tried to bring down Trump?!

Does The President Think We’re Idiots?             

This is another headline in the LA Times this week, but I would ask if Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi think we’re idiots?  They’re claiming this impeachment stuff has nothing to do with partisan politics, which is a crock of corn if I’ve ever heard one. The Squad’s heat has finally lit a fire under Nancy’s rear-end and it has became too uncomfortable for her to sit still so she finally relented, and with Chuckey’s blessing, she plowed ahead with such flimsy evidence. It’s laughable.

As usual Rush Limbaugh nailed this:               

“Honestly, folks, no matter how difficult it may be, do not doubt me on this. There’s nothing here. There is no violation of law. There is no violation of the Constitution. There is no violation of campaign finance laws. There is nothing here like there was nothing to the Trump-Russia collusion. There’s nothing here like Christine Blasey Ford had nothing on Brett Kavanaugh. It is simply the same effort, the same objective: overturn the election results of 2016 using different narratives or different stories or different scandals. But it is all the same thing.”\

Quips, Quotes & Headlines:

“Their only politically viable avenue is scandal, investigation, impeachment with Trump.

 Letter to the Ranter:


Your comments last week regarding your meeting with our district’s Assemblywoman Christy Smith was very telling. You were the adult who asked for a meeting after her incredible antics.  Her page’s FB post that you printed is precisely what we constituents would expect.  Her pitiful comments were superficial and arrogant. She’s merely trying to brush this huge mistake away. There was not an inkling of recognition or awareness of what she did to a small family -owned business here in the SCV, let alone any inkling of apology or regret. Remarkable!

 Part of her post stated “We both agree that representation of multiple perspectives in media is critically important. To that end, Doug has offered space weekly to anyone who’d like to write from centrist, left of center, and progressive perspectives. I’d encourage anyone interested to reach out to Doug at The Gazette for details.” That verbiage translates to “Because I talked to Doug Sutton, now the left of center will have a voice in the Gazette that they have not had before”.

 That is unbelievably oblivious! Christy Smith is so profoundly clueless; she does not even know The Gazette does publish articles and thoughts of people from every corner to contribute in writing to his Gazette and still actively seeks more! You, Doug, have rejected no one. A good share of the commentary writers and contributors today are from the left of center. To admit she does not know this is an eye opener to the (formerly) naive. It is glaringly clear that Assemblywoman Christy Smith has not called off her rabid faction to stop threatening and intimidating Gazette advertisers.

 What an elected representative! One who works to shut down small businesses and promotes job losses that threaten livelihoods of working families…her constituents, whether they’ve voted for her or not. This is a huge wake-up call and should frighten everyone!  It’s in our collective face and it’s shameful. Betty Arenson
