The New York Times Dedicates Entire Hit Piece To Melania’s Shoes

Published

“When is a shoe not just a shoe?” asks New York Times fashion critic Vanessa Friedman at the start of a multi-hundred word piece on First Lady Melania Trump’s kicks.

The premise? While Melania boarded Air Force One with President Trump as the pair headed to assess the damage in Hurricane Harvey-torn Texas, she was pictured wearing – gasp – stilettos.

This was nothing short of a crime to progressives who, despite their self-proclaimed forward-thinking feminism, seem more concerned about what Melania was wearing than what she was actually doing in Texas.

The New York Times’ Friedman falls into that same trap, arguing that “to dismiss all this as merely much ado about heels, or an example of the pettiness of our divided electorate, is to ignore the reality of the current conversation about the President – to pretend not to notice how sensitized everyone has become to his unpredictable reactions to major events, and to deny the power of the telling detail to invite applause, condemnation or misinterpretation.”

No, Friedman, it’s quite obviously all about shoes – especially considering the fact that progressives in an uproar about Melania’s stilettos appear to have missed the part where she changed into tennis shoes by the time she got off Air Force One.

“Women in the capital are generally more associated with sensible pumps than teetering patent leather numbers,” Friedman’s unnecessarily complex piece in The Times continues.

“The problem is that, as First Lady, in an environment as fraught as the current one, there is no such thing as offstage. Even boarding a plane becomes a quasi-official moment in which all messaging, spoken or assumed, is mined for meaning.”

Friedman – in what has to be one of the most rushed endings published by any major media outlet today – concludes by calling for more hyper-analysis of Melania Trump’s attire.

“The sharp point of the stilettos,” she writes, “is that this kind of proactive analysis needs to be applied as consistently as possible across all public appearances (which, when you are in the White House, is all appearances).”

“In Mrs. Trump’s job, as in her husband’s, details matter. Even shoes. Put your best foot forward, and all that.”

It’s hard to understand what the point of all this was. Many people responding to The New York Times’ piece appear to agree.

In actual news related to Hurricane Harvey, the city of Houston has imposed a curfew in an effort to clamp down on looting and other opportunistic crimes.

According to The Los Angeles Times, the fear of looting is particularly high thanks to the presence of thousands of abandoned and partially submerged homes in Houston.

Houston continues to receive an abominable amount of rain, with some areas getting hit with more than 50 inches worth – more than what they typically receive in a full year.

Vice, Newsweek Silent After Journalist Accused Of Robbing, Injuring A Woman At Cernovich Event

Published

on

Vice, Newsweek and The Guardian remain silent after a journalist claiming to work for the media outlets was accused of robbing a woman and injuring her in the process outside Mike Cernovich’s Columbia University event in New York on Monday evening.

As New York Daily News reports, police arrested 30-year-old Arvind Dilawar – who now faces robbery and possession of stolen property charges – outside the event after he allegedly ripped a cellphone out of a 34-year-old woman’s hands and ran off.

As Mike Cernovich reported earlier today via Twitter, that woman is believed to be a journalist who was covering the protest outside Mike Cernovich’s event.

As of earlier this afternoon, Dilawar’s website – which is currently password protected – lists him as a writer for The Guardian, Vice and Newsweek.

Those outlets have not responded to requests for comment from Cernovich Media related to the incident.

Specifically, Cernovich Media wanted to know how those outlets were handling the serious allegations aimed at Dilawar. The writer himself has also not responded to a request from Cernovich Media for comment.

The circumstances surrounding Dilawar’s alleged theft remain unclear but an account from at least one other journalist covering last night’s protest outside Columbia University indicates that alt-leftists were less than welcoming towards journalists.

The hostility appears to have been rooted in a fear of having their faces exposed to the public – probably not an unfounded fear considering the infamous tale of one Eric Clanton.

Despite attempts by the alt-left to disrupt Mike Cernovich’s event at Columbia yesterday, the Gorilla Mindset author’s speech went more or less smoothly. Catch the full speech below.

Trump Agrees To Release Hidden JFK Files: MSM Was Wrong Again.

Published

on

I have a question. Are the American people entitled to a more transparent version of history? After all, historical events play a massive roll in establishing future political outcomes, sentiment, and direction. So by that accord wouldn’t more information be better than less, in regards to making more informed decisions? Are the American people entitled to know the truth when it comes to their own country’s history?

This question is certainly applicable to the current political questions being raised about the release of a potential trove of government documents on the JFK assassination. Will we be left with more questions than answers regarding the events that took place on that fateful day in Dallas on November 22nd, 1963? Well, Trump set the speculation to rest when he posted this tweet earlier today.

The MSM’s spin on the topic has been quite visible. Articles filled with wild speculations and anti-Trump rhetoric began circulating around the web. Some saying that if President Trump agreed to let the files become public that pandemonium would ensue. Other articles claiming that it would refuel “conspiracy theorists.”

According to Newsweek, “More than 3,000 never-before-seen documents from the FBI, CIA, and Justice Department are set to be released, along with 30,000 that have only been partially released in the past.

The document dump “will simply fuel a new generation of conspiracy theories,” write Philip Shenon and Larry J. Sabato.” Newsweek continued, “The Archives will release the documents between now and the Oct. 26 deadline, but doing so could be chaotic.”

One wildly popular media personality seemed to call Trump’s decision before it had been formally announced. Alex Jones of Infowars.com was ont of the few to seem confident about the release of the documents as was evident in this tweet.

Politico reported, “Trump, no stranger to conspiracy theories, including totally unsubstantiated theories about a link between Ted Cruz’s father and JFK’s death.” They continued, “s it stands now, the document release this month will be a logistical nightmare, with the public suddenly flooded with a huge online library of documents—tens of thousands in total—that will be, at first, mostly incomprehensible even to experienced students of the assassination.”

Politico also writes, “With everything made public at once, pandemonium is all but guaranteed, since major news organizations around the world will want to know, almost instantly, what is in the documents that is new and potentially important. And there will simply be no way for historians and other researchers, even those with a special knowledge of the Kennedy assassination, to make any authoritative judgment as they try to page through tens of thousands of pages of files all at once.”

So amid the debate on whether or not these documents should be released, we have to ask ourselves, who benefits? Why does the MSM seem to be so slanted on this topic? Would the American people benefit from learning the truth about the JFK assassination? Is the truth something that unites the American people? Draw your own conclusion but I am of the opinion that not only are we owed the truth, we deserve it.

Massive Child Predator Arrests Made Across Nation. MSM Remains Silent

Published

on

October 18th was a victorious day for law enforcement as they successfully carried out massive sting operations and arrest sweeps in three states. They were able to arrest 421 suspected sexual predators. These included arrests for child sex trafficking. These arrests were initially reported by three local outlets.

The Clarion-Ledger out of Mississippi reported, “two alleged child sex traffickers in Mississippi along with 20 individuals identified as associated with prostitution were among those nabbed in a nationwide crackdown that led to the recovery of 84 minors, the youngest 3 months old.

USNews reported out of Florida, “law enforcement in Polk County, Florida arrested 277 people in connection with human trafficking and online prostitution. A cancer surgeon, a teacher, a pediatrician, an Air Force veteran, a retired police officer and a colonel in the Marine Corps were among the nearly 300 people arrested in Florida in a massive prostitution sting, police say.”

The undercover human trafficking operation, which was called “Operation No Tricks, No Treats” and ran from Oct. 10-15, netted 277 people, according to a press release from the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.”

In Georgia AJC.com reported, “sixty people were arrested and four children were recovered in Georgia during an FBI-led operation that focused on child sex trafficking, the agency announced Wednesday morning.”

Here at Cernovich.com we are happy to see law enforcement cracking down on child sex traffickers and support any organization shining a light on this dark but important topic. Only by exposing the issue to the American public can we combat these disgusting predators effectively.

I do have one question though. Where is the mainstream media? This was a huge multi-state, multi-agency operation and the only sound we hear from the MSM is silent. I guess the well being of children falls short on their list of newsworthy priorities.
