Megyn Kelly cons the folks!

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 2016

Completing eight years of Obama:
On Wednesday night, we caught this tease by Megyn Kelly:
KELLY (11/16/16): Still ahead, President Obama delivering his toughest remarks yet on President-Elect Trump. Chief Washington Correspondent James Rosen has all the fall-out.
Good lord! There he went again! We decided to stick around to see what Obama had said. And to examine "all the fall-out!"

Kelly teased these "toughest remarks" throughout her hour-long program. Eventually, we got her hard-hitting report.

The segment started with tape of Obama on his 2009 "apology tour." After she'd primed the pump that way, this is all she actually had:
KELLY: You remember that. To me, he looks so much younger there. That was President Obama in 2009 in one of his first trip overseas, an event that critics would label part of the "apology tour" since he shared sometimes harsh language of, about America's treatment of our allies.

Today, on his last trip overseas as president, he delivered new criticism, this time against President-Elect Trump.

Chief Washington Correspondent James Rosen joins us with the details. James?

ROSEN: Megyn, good evening. Until today President Obama had spent a post-election period urging divided America to give Donald Trump and his team a chance. But after he toured the Acropolis in Athens, Greece, birthplace of democracy, the outgoing president delivered his toughest remarks yet about the president-elect and the meaning of his victory.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
OBAMA: As you may have noticed, the next American president and I could not be more different.

[flash edit]

OBAMA: Faced with this new reality where cultures clash, it is inevitable that some will seek a comfort in nationalism or tribe or ethnicity or sect.
(END VIDEO CLIP)

ROSEN: With the Democratic Party he has led for the last eight years now having lost the White House, remaining in the minority in both houses of Congress and suffering deeper losses at the state level, Mr. Obama finds himself about to yield to a successor, who campaign on dismantling the Obama legacy. This has created a tension in his final days between official duty and personal interest as president.

Mr. Obama expresses continuity to reassure allies. As a political figure he seeks to avoid blame for his party's defeat and project confidence that his legacy will endure.
After an hour of teasing Obama's "toughest remarks," those two remarks were all she had. They were separated by a flash edit. Plainly, we were supposed to think Obama was trashing Trump in that second remark.

Let's place those remarks in context. In his speech, Obama was discussing the need to maintain democratic institutions and procedures. The two remarks were widely separated in the actual speech:
OBAMA (11/16/16): We compete hard in campaigns in America and here in Greece. But after the election, democracy depends on a peaceful transition of power, especially when you don't get the result you want.

And as you may have noticed, the next American president and I could not be more different. We have very different points of view. But American democracy is bigger than any one person. That's why we have a tradition of the outgoing president welcoming the new one in, as I did last week. And why, in the coming weeks, my administration will do everything we can to support the smoothest transition possible, because that's how democracy has to work.

[Long gap in speech]

Democracy is simplest where everybody thinks alike, looks alike, eats the same food, worships the same God. Democracy becomes more difficult when there are people coming from a variety of backgrounds and trying to live together. In our globalized world, with the migration of people and the rapid movement of ideas and cultures and traditions, we see increasingly this blend of forces mixing together in ways that often enrich our societies but also cause tensions.

In the Information Age, the unprecedented exchange of information can always accentuate differences, or seem to threaten cherished ways of life. It used to be that you might not know how people in another part of your country, or in the cities versus the countryside, were living. Now everybody knows how everybody is living, and everybody can feel threatened sometimes if people don't do things exactly the way they do things. And they start asking themselves questions about their own identity. And it can create a volatile politics.

Faced with this new reality where cultures clash, it's inevitable that some will seek a comfort in nationalism or tribe or ethnicity or sect. In countries that are held together by borders that were drawn by colonial powers, including many countries in the Middle East and in Africa, it can be tempting to fall back on perceived safety of enclaves and tribal divisions.
Was Obama making "his toughest remarks yet" about Trump? In the first excerpt Kelly offered, Obama said he differed from Trump—but only to say that democracy was bigger than such differences. He stressed the way he and Trump were going to work together.

In the second excerpt Kelly presented, Obama wasn't discussing Trump at all. Kelly's suggestion to the contrary was an hour-long con.

Kelly and Rosen deceived Fox viewers that night. For the record, Rachel Maddow likes conning us gullibles too. As with Fox viewers, so too with us; as true believers, we don't see it. But no one does a slippery edit quite the way Maddow does!

Increasingly, Kelly is a mainstream media darling. We liberals kick down at the people she misleads, sit around twiddling our thumbs as the mainstream kisses her aspic about her daring new book. $20 million or bust!

Regular people get fooled on cable by multimillionaires every night. We liberals love to trash the regular people who get misled on Fox.

Should we look for ways to tell these people that they're getting misled by the big stars they think they can trust? When professors make such suggestions, we think they're weird crazy dumb.

Regarding those who get misled on Fox, they're racists and bigots, we like to cry. It's a prominent part of our dumb, ugly culture. It comes from our weak tribal minds.

People have always loathed The Others. Little about Us is better.

  1. Obama said, "it's inevitable that some will seek a comfort in nationalism or tribe or ethnicity or sect."

    Which people is he saying will react this way?

    1. Trump supporters who don't like blacks, Hispanics and immigrants.

    2. Trump opponents who criticize white men and women for voting for Obama.

    3. Both

    I vote for #1. I think this particular comment was a suble way of calling Trump supporters "bigots".

  2. I think Obama meant that actuaries will disdain non-actuaries.

    I wouldn't be surprised if President Obama is extremely grateful that idiot savant David in Cal is around to read his mind and explain to the non-unityspelltemple members what he really means instead of what he actually says.

  6. Kevin Drum remains clueless about women's financial concerns. He appears bewildered that participation in the workforce by women with children has declined less than for women without children despite the rising cost of child care. It should be obvious that the other costs of raising kids are also increasing, so women with kids need the money more than childless women. If you need the money you will keep working as long as child care costs don't exceed pay. A woman without kids is not responsible to them and has more latitude to quit in a marginal employment situation. This is pretty obvious to most women.

    He shouldn't be writing about women's issues without an editor because he is embarrassing himself (at least to women).

  7. I agree, David. It sounded like the usual way Pres. Obama implies people are racists via encouraging them to be more high-minded.

  9. Excited my life is back My husband and I have been together for almost 11 years in October. The way we met wasn’t the best way since we both had relationships. We ended our relationships to be together (or so I thought we BOTH did). As soon as I ended up pregnant with our first baby, I find out he was cheating with his EX! My world went upside down. It was very hard for me since I was pregnant and hurt. Over the years I just kept forgiving him over and over again of not only multiple affairs, but of his accusations of me being unfaithful and disrespecting me. We now have 3 kids and I just completely felt neglected and felt low of myself. I had my own affair… It has not been easy for BOTH of us to overcome. Somehow over the last few weeks we have been working together to move on. We are now moving out of state. I love my husband and I am positive he loves me. I am going to try and show him this approach. Somehow we were already doing it! We have a better communication than we’ve had in years! We are learning how to speak calmly out feelings and concerns. It hasn’t been peachy, but I can see that we both are starting to respect eachother. We care for each other’s feelings. We have US a main priority. We aren’t taking counseling, but somehow we see that little by little we seem more comfortable with eachother. Sometimes we may notice how good it is going and may step back, but helping eachother out by holding and saying it’s ok to be happy again. I love my family. and my husband and i need to keep my marriage save with him from other women so i have to seek for a love spell to keep our marriage stronger so i contacted Dr happy who help me to keep my marriage save and secure from other women am very happy today coz my husband love me more and more like ever before, we are living as one big family again bless Dr happy for what he did to me and my husband if you need help contact him too he is real and 100% guarantee ok so email him at : happylovespell2@gmail.com call +2348133873774 about his service and web site: http://happyspelltemple.webs.com/

  10. My husband is back and am so Excited My life became devastated when my husband sent me packing, after 8 years that we have been together. I was lost and helpless after trying so many ways to make my husband take me back. One day at work, i was absent minded not knowing that my boss was calling me, so he sat and asked me what its was all about i told him and he smiled and said that it was not a problem. I never understand what he meant by it wasn't a problem getting my husband back, he said he used a spell to get his wife back when she left him for another man and now they are together till date and at first i was shocked hearing such thing from my boss. He gave me an email address of the great spell caster who helped him get his wife back, i never believed this would work but i had no choice that to get in contact with the spell caster which i did, and he requested for my information and that of my husband to enable him cast the spell and i sent him the details, but after two days, my mom called me that my husband came pleading that he wants me back, i never believed it because it was just like a dream and i had to rush down to my mothers place and to my greatest surprise, my husband was kneeling before me pleading for forgiveness that he wants me and the kid back home, then i gave Happy a call regarding sudden change of my husband and he made it clear to me that my husband will love me till the end of the world, that he will never leave my sight. Now me and my husband is back together again and has started doing pleasant things he hasn't done before, he makes me happy and do what he is suppose to do as a man without nagging. Please if you need help of any kind, kindly contact Happy for help and you can reach him via email: happylovespell2@gmail.com call +2348133873774 about his service and web site: http://happyspelltemple.webs.com/

  12. My husband and I have been together for almost 7 years, married for almost 4 years. We have a son that just turned 4. We got together and married young, I am 33 and he is 40. Over the years we have had many issues, including infidelity, a 6 month separation, and he said to me he wanted to get a divorce many times. I don’t necessarily have an issue getting over the past, it is his continued present behavior that keeps me wondering if he will ever change, ever mature, or be the husband and father I need him to be. he filed for divorce August 2014, but i refused to sign the papers coz i love him so much. I allowed the case to be dismissed, maybe to see if he will ever change. I have so many doubts and I am not sure which way to turn. I can not invest 100% into this marriage because I was so afraid to be disappointed all over again. I am afraid he has be cheating on me, I love him, but there are definitely no romantic feelings toward him, the feelings that made me fall in love with him in the first place. I felt so comfortable with him in my life, he makes me laugh, he’s playful, caring and attentive, on the other hand he has an anger problem, is negative, can be immature most of the time, argues with me constantly, and I don’t trust him. coz he use to cheat on me, i love my husband so much and also i want to save my marriage from divorce. so i cry to a friend of my, who told me to warp my tears, that there is a solution to my problem. so she introduce to me Dr happy a real spell caster that help to fight, stop marriage divorce and relationship problem also get ex back. so i give him a try and with-in 2day my problem with my husband was solve and ok, me and my husband and family and happily living great all thank to Dr happy you can reach him on happylovespell2@gmail.com or still call and Whats-pp him on +2348133873774 about his service and web site: http://happyspelltemple.webs.com/ Thanks Sandra Katie from Usa California
