Twisted and Mad: What’s the Antidote to Our Debauched and Disturbing ‘Leaders’?


Published on Aug 15, 2019

Is the debauched and disturbing world we see playing out on the news networks and social media just “the world we live in,” or is there another, quiet and dignified America that doesn’t make it to the screen? In a week when billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein died under strange circumstances in a federal prison, Bill Whittle finds the following Tweet offers solace and hope… “The only thing holding up the world at this point is the thoughtless routine and naive virtue of the working stiff. All the things the world weary revile: customary honesty, religion, family sustain our life. As for our “world leaders”, they are twisted and mad.” — @wretchardthecat , Richard Fernandez on Twitter If you’d like to make sure these kinds of discussions keep coming, we invite you to join the Members who produce them at https://BillWhittle.com/register/

 

NY Times’ Accurate Trump Headline Angers Readers, Sparks Emergency Newsroom Meeting


Published on Aug 16, 2019

The NY Times’ accurate headline about a President Trump speech angers readers — some of whom cancel subscriptions — and sparks an emergency meeting where the executive editor calls the headline “an f-ing mess.” What fueled this outrage and chaos? In his speech after the El Paso mass shooting, Trump called on Americans to abandon racism, and come together against hate. However, the front page headline –“Trump Urges Unity Against Racism” — upset the Left’s narrative of the president as a race-baiter and minority hater. The headline was shortly replaced with “Assailing Hate But Not Guns”. [We apologize for two brief audio glitches in this video. Obscured moments are both contained in this description.] Here’s are the relevant passages from President Trump’s speech: “The shooter in El Paso posted a manifesto online consumed by racist hate. In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry, and white supremacy. These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hate has no place in America. Hatred warps the mind, ravages the heart, and devours the soul…Now is the time to set destructive partisanship aside, so destructive, and find the courage to answer hatred with unity, devotion, and love.” [Full trancript: https://tinyurl.com/TrumpElPasoSpeech] Right Angle, with Bill Whittle, Scott Ott and Stephen Green, comes to you free of charge thanks to the Members who pay for its production.

Thomas Sowell — Dismantling America


Published on Aug 19, 2010

Thomas Sowell has studied and taught economics, intellectual history, and social policy at institutions that include Cornell University, UCLA, and Amherst College. Now a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Sowell has published more than a dozen books, the latest of which is Dismantling America. In introducing his new book, Sowell asserts that the Obama administration “is the embodiment, the personification, and the culmination of dangerous trends that began decades ago,” trends that are “dismantling America.” Sowell sees this in the dismantling of marriage, of culture, and of self-government.

Invading Invaders Invasion: Should Trump Drop El Paso Shooter Manifesto Term?


Published on Aug 13, 2019

A manifesto posted by the El Paso shooter echoes “invasion” rhetoric used by conservative media figures like Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Tucker Carlson, Pat Buchanan, Laura Ingraham and other FoxNews commentators — as well as by President Trump — to refer to illegal immigration. Trump and his echo-chamber acolytes should drop “invading,” “invaders,” and “invasion” — The New York Times suggests, to avoid the association with white nationalism. Regardless of your opinion of “the paper of record” might it be smart to de-couple right-wing rhetoric from that of crazed killers? Bill Whittle Now is a production of the Members at BillWhittle.com.

AG Bill Barr: “Serious Irregularities” Surround Custodial Death of Jeffrey Epstein…


United States Attorney General William Barr delivered remarks this morning to the Fraternal Order of Police’s National Biennial Conference when he spoke about the custodial death of high-profile sex trafficking ringleader Jeffrey Epstein.

“We are now learning of serious irregularities at this facility that are deeply concerning”..

[Transcript] […] “Before I begin, I would like to briefly address the news from the Manhattan Correctional Center over the weekend regarding Jeffrey Epstein. This case was very important to the Department. It was important to the dedicated prosecutors and agents who investigated the case and were preparing it for trial. Most importantly, this case was important to the victims who had the courage to come forward and deserved the opportunity to confront the accused in court.

I was appalled – indeed, the entire Department was – and frankly angry, to learn of the MCC’s failure to adequately secure this prisoner. We are now learning of serious irregularities at this facility that are deeply concerning and that demand a thorough investigation.

The FBI and the Office of Inspector General are already doing just that. We will get to the bottom of what happened at the MCC and we will hold people accountable for this failure.

Let me assure you that this case will continue on against anyone who was complicit with Epstein. Any co-conspirators should not rest easy. The victims deserve justice, and we will ensure they get it.” (link)
