Stupidity as a signal

Courtesy of Ed Driscoll over at Instapundit: That’s the Washington Post saying that the current energy crisis was supposed to kickstart a green revolution, “but the world wasn’t ready.” There’ll be snowmen in Hell before I pay my way through the Washington Post paywall, but since they’re the extreme left’s most loyal propagandists it’s unlikely…

Danish media yawn at would-be Supreme Court assassin

As of this writing, late on Friday afternoon, there’s still nothing on DR about Wednesday’s foiled assassination of Brett Kavanaugh. (But, as you can imagine, plenty of stuff on the star chamber show trial underway in Congress.) Nothing on TV2 News, either. Can’t find anything related to the story when using “Kavanaugh” and even “højesteret”…

The Extremist Party

According to CNN, Joe Biden is “sharpening his mid-term message.” At the White House on Wednesday, Ole Puddinhead delivered a speech that “reflected Biden’s preparations for intense midterm campaigning built around hammering Republicans.” You know, the way “unity” candidates often do. With his approval rating as bad as the low 30s in some polls and…

Much Too Little, Much Too Late

Mikkel Danielsen is Berlingske Tidende’s USA correspondent. I don’t know how I missed it, but on April 4 he actually came across with the goods on Hunter Biden—and that’s a full six days before I wrote my post about the “ongoing silence.” I screwed up. There was at least one story in the Danish media…

Reflections on the Ongoing Silence

Danes who rely on Danish media for their understanding of the world still don’t know that the same “news” outlets that declared Hunter Biden’s laptop to be a Russian operation back in the weeks before the 2020 presidential election have at last acknowledged its authenticity. That’s a deeply significant story for two reasons. Firstly because…

The Biggest Story Never Told

A quick review of the Danish headlines Thursday morning didn’t turn up much political news about America. Every outlet had a story about Bruce Willis’s retirement from acting, and most had several articles about the fallout from Will Smith’s assault of Chris Rock at the Oscars.  (Politiken ran five on its homepage; Jyllands Posten had an article…

Say It Ain’t So, Joe

Ole Puddinhead outdid himself last week. His visit to Europe to attend the NATO summit in Brussels and deliver an address on NATO’s eastern flank in Warsaw presented an excellent opportunity to lay down some serious foreign policy markers and persuade Vladimir Putin that Russia is still welcome back in the community of nations if…

Truth without Consequences

Do people ever get tired of being lied to? Misled? Deceived? Don’t waste time on that: I already know the answer. It’s no. The answer is no, people never get tired of being lied to, misled, or deceived. There are only two conditions: it has to be something they want to believe, and you have…

Who Forgot to Set the Prevail Option?

Events are happening too fast to keep up. The public statements of government officials on every side have to be interpreted as psy-ops or propaganda (or both). The media have spent the past five years proving themselves not just unreliable but deceptive. So I’ll be the first to admit I have no idea what’s actually…

Steffen Kretz Explains Biden’s First Year

DR’s ace correspondent Steffen Kretz has once again put pen to paper to misinform those of us who pay his salary. President Biden’s first year began hopefully, but defeats are now dominantSteffen “Ace Correspondent” Kretz, DR.dk, Jan 21 Lede: “U.S. President Joe Biden has gone from being popular to the opposite in his first year…

Surfin’ USA

Mads Fuglede is a member of the Danish parliament for the (ostensibly) right-of-center Venstre party. On Sunday he penned an opinion piece for the (ostensibly) right-of-center Berlingske Tidende. In his byline, Berlingske identified him not only as a member of parliament, but also a “U.S. Analyst.” A right-of-center reader of this right-of-center publication might have…

Joe Biden’s Assault on Democracy

Let’s play the game by the same set of rules being used by Joe Biden. Any tactic he’s allowed to use, we’re allowed to use. Whatever heights of hyperbole he soars to, we’ll fly right alongside him. Whatever depths of mud and slime he’s willing plumb, we’ll wallow in it. You’ve been warned. Joe Biden…

Lie, Smear, Rinse, Repeat

In an article that’s supposed to be about Joe Biden’s address to the nation on January 6, DR proves once again that there’s no Democratic Party talking point they’re unwilling to pass on to the Danish public as a matter of established fact. Correspondent: Biden’s speech was the first direct accusation from “the top” against…

On Numeracy

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) has compelled me to violate my own rule about not embedding tweets. Second time in a week that’s happened. Before we get to the tweet, let’s clarify a few things: the DCCC is an explicitly partisan organization. In their own words (from the “About Us” page of their website),…

Negro is Not the N Word

Berlingske has a spectacularly wrong headline up right now: Biden said the N-word. Then Twitter went amok: “Where are the woke?”Kalinka Aaman Agger, Berlingske.dk, Nov 12 Biden used the word “negro.” He used it by mistake. He made the mistake because, to quote a Stephen Miller tweet cited in Agger’s article, his brain is applesauce….

“Now comes the punishment.”

Danish news media don’t appear to be coping very well with yesterday’s shellacking of the Democratic party. Phrases like “five-alarm fire” and “bloodbath” are being used even by leftist commentators in America to describe the results of Tuesday’s elections. But as far as I can tell to this point, the major Danish news outlets have…

Clown Show Treatment

Actual American news has still been pretty hard to come by on the main Danish news media the past 48 hours, with one notable exception that I’ll get to in a moment. But let’s start with some examples of what little American news has made it into the Danish news stream. First, a Berlingske story…
