Was The Weekly Standard Advertising Itself for Purchase by Leftist Billionaires?

ITEM: The Weekly Standard's corporate owner, MediaDC, told it that it was not interested in continuing the magazine but permitted it to find another buyer "months" ago.


The magazine's precarious position comes after its leadership spent months searching for a buyer, the people told CNN.

The people explained that The Weekly Standard's leadership had butted heads with MediaDC, the current publisher of the magazine, and that the two parties had agreed to allow Hayes to search for a new owner.

However, MediaDC recently informed The Weekly Standard's leadership that the company was no longer interested in a sale, the people said.

That sounds like spin to me-- spin from the Weekly Standard partisans, looking to damage MediaDC for finally getting sick of floating their layabout, endlessly subsidized asses.

What MediaDC probably said was We are no longer interested in funding you while you futilely look for a buyer.

I'm sure MediaDC would unload this piece of shit if someone actually wanted to buy it. But MediaDC has been forced to pay for this failure while they're looking for a suitor. What they're not looking to do is continue flushing money into the toilet while Senorita Hayes searches for a Spanish Suitor in Barthelona.

ITEM: The Standard routinely rejects pieces that are not explicitly anti-Trump. Even pieces that simply point out media bias are rejected because they could be construed as, indirectly supporting Trump given that the media is Trump's partisan enemy.

Even pieces pushing normal orthodox conservatism are unwanted, because, I believe the thinking goes, Trump mostly supports orthodox conservatism so a piece that supports orthodox conservatism could be construed as indirectly supporting Trump.

Presenting a piece that attacks Fusion GPS can even get you fired.

ITEM: The Weekly Standard has taken a harder and harder left turn as their deadline to sell approached. For example, in July, the Weekly Standard ran a cover story hit piece on Devin Nunes by... a Democrat staffer on the Intelligence Committee. (By the way, they identified her as "minority counsel on the Intelligence Committee" instead of "Democrat counsel" because... well, it seems obvious they wanted to avoid that word, no? Maybe some people wouldn't notice.)

That's a strange career trajectory, isn't it? Partisan Democrat legislative counsel to... cover story writer for an allegedly conservative magazine?

POSSIBLE CONCLUSION: The Weekly Standard first sought out a rich moderate Republican to buy the magazine, then maybe an alleged "independent," and then, in the last few months, began trying to make the magazine 100% friendly to a full-on leftist purchaser like Pierre Omidyar or Tom Steyer or Michael Bloomberg.

Or who knows: Maybe even George Soros.

All I know is that that it became "antisemitic" to note that George Soros funds the left as George Soros began funding more and more of the former right.

These bad-faith charges of antisemitism were promulgated by Weekly Standard personnel.

As they grew more desperate, they scrambled to make the magazine more and more friendly to the left, scrubbing out anything that could even be construed as vaguely supportive of standard conservatism -- except where a clear attack line on the left's enemy Trump presented itself.

But they failed. Not even a leftist wanted to buy a tainted, failing magazine, even just to continue demoralizing the conservative movement (as the Weekly Standard has been doing for several years running).

Possibility? The revelation that Pierre Omidyar was funding Kristol & Co., and the bad press both sides got out of that revelation, spooked the intended White Knight buyer Omidyar from bailing the piece of shit out.

Speculation, obviously.

The "This" channel here ran them all this autumn, and have segued into the B & W and then the color Diana Rigg episodes. Honor Blackman was hot in a dominatrix way. I was never sure whether she even liked Steed, let alone had slept with him. The eps were also shot on videotape and almost always in a studio, so they are sort of film-noirish and claustrophobic. But they featured much more "realistic" plotting and situations than came along with the Rigg stories.

By taking a hard turn left and pissing off everyone but the NeverTrump Wifeswap Brigade, TWS is now completely useless to the left because conservatives are on to the game and no longer read/trust/pay attention to it.

87 It's 2018. Is the existence of a paper magazine even still a thing?

While there might be a place in this world for actual, you know, journalism, it seems to me the whole of publishing, as with teevee entertainment (i.e. news outlets) are so infected with the modern concepts of what "journalism" has become, there can't possibly be a real market for such things. And by market I mean, actual buyers of content, who go to these people for information that can't/won't be gotten elsewhere for free.

So as tweeter further poisons the intricate, complex network of various people and publications and media outlets, something as 20th century as a magazine just has no place in this world anymore.

If they'll turn on someone who has done more to accomplish what they preached for years (except the warmongering) then they'll probably turn on the left when the time comes.

I always wondered how a magazine with so few pages it wouldn't be a good choice to take to the outhouse ever was able to make any money. And frankly all it seemed to do was provide a different viewpoint to the National Review the magazine it strode to emulate.

This is a good lesson for NR. I hope they take it to heart and start calming down the anti-Trump bullshit. The left is doing fine at that they don't need any help.

Some denominations will modify that to Holy Christian Church or (and obviously you can't *hear* this) holy catholic Church, where 'catholic' is used as the adjective meaning 'universal' rather than the title, and means the invisible church-those counted by God as believers (of any denomination)-rather than any particular organization of people.

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has announced that it has purchased The Weekly Standard for an undisclosed amount.

Richard Cohen, President of the SPLC, made the following comments:

"We have noted in recent months the increasing similarity between the attitudes and agendas of our two organizations, and were excited when the opportunity arose to acquire The Weekly Standard and turn it into our fundraising newsletter.

"TWS will be headquartered at our offices in the Cayman Islands, beyond the reach of punitive damages awards for libel claims in American courts.

"I would like to add with satisfaction that our purchase will save the US taxpayer millions of dollars that would have been required in the event of a government bailout of TWS."

312 For me the only statement necessary is John 3: 16.

Baptism and acknowledgement of Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior will do you for most Protestants.

The whole purpose of Christ's coming was to de emphasize the reliance on prayers to God.

God was to take a higher tier and all prayers and guidance would be handled by Jesus. (that's my personal take)

This is what mostly pissed off the Catholic Church as they believe that only thru the intercession of the priesthood can the sinner be saved. Protestants believe that the sinner can save themselves by direct plea to Jesus.

326 This is what mostly pissed off the Catholic Church as they believe that only thru the intercession of the priesthood can the sinner be saved. Protestants believe that the sinner can save themselves by direct plea to Jesus.


LCMS still has Confession and Absolution but, what started Martin Luther on his path to schism was the realization that he was already saved by Grace, through Jesus Christ.

Not eactly, but I think I know what you're getting at. Evangelicals believe that Christ alone saves, by grace through faith. It is a gift of God, to be received. It is offered, not earned. Our sins are forgiven because of the shed blood of Christ on the cross, his death and resurrection. Belive on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved. There is nothing one can do to earn salvation. It is the gift of God to those who believe.

Well it was probably Protestant propaganda but that's what I heard when they talked about the differences and why the Catholic Church was the Whore of Babylon. (you get the drift)

I always thought that besides the political problems brought on by a Sovereign that was not annointed by the church the main reason Catholics despised the Protestants was because of the lessening of the priests influence.

Protestants tended to distribute the Bible where the Church had always kept it to itself and told the lay catholics the priests would intercede with God for them and forgive their sins.

No one should take anything I say about religion as definitive. It's become an amalgam of many beliefs over the years. Sort of like a Spiritual smorgasbord.

That's what they want the rubes to think. Just like they want the rubes to think McCain hated Trump for questioning his heroism. Obama blamed W daily every day of his two terms and Clinton called HW a "wimp."

No, they all hate Trump because he's not in "the club." And got elected president without their help....

Not eactly, but I think I know what you're getting at. Evangelicals believe that Christ alone saves, by grace through faith. It is a gift of God, to be received. It is offered, not earned. Our sins are forgiven because of the shed blood of Christ on the cross, his death and resurrection. Belive on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved. There is nothing one can do to earn salvation. It is the gift of God to those who believe.


my humble thoughts

Posted by: grammie winger, church pirate at December 05, 2018 01:22 PM (lwiT4)

Faith alone vs faith and good works. From what I've seen there's a difference in what people understand faith to mean. For Catholics faith means obedience(repentance and good works being a subset of that). Surely the Devil believes in God, so faith must mean more than simply belief in his existence. What faith means to protestants seems to vary immensely.

Ha, so true. We have had first time visitors to our church come on Athanasian Sunday and look gobsmacked. I have to tell them after service that we don't do that one every Sunday.

Personally, I'm not comfortable with the Creed, being more than a bit of an Arian myself, which my previous minister told me to keep to myself.

It honestly does bother me when politicians on opposite sides are "chummy".

Obama was literally spying on Trump like some 3rd world dictator and trying to get everyone around him thrown in prison (including his own kids) we have to pretend they get along?

Why does Trump not say the Apostles Creed? He was the only one not to.


Back in the days before the Episcopal Church absndoned the 1928 Book of Common Prayer and set out on its quest to become the "Church of Jesus Christ, the Hip and With It", Holy Communion was celebrated on only one Sunday in four per month and on Feast Days. The Nicene Creed was used in that service with the archaic wording (e.g., "very God from very God" instead of today's "true God from true God").

On all other Sundays the service was Morning Prayer and the creed in that was the Apostles' Creed. At those times, then, I was 3x more familiar with the Apostles' Creed, but given how long ago the switch to the new Book of Common Prayer occurred (closing in on fifty years), I have pretty much forgotten it but could probably start 'er up if given the initial phrase.

429 This is what mostly pissed off the Catholic Church as they believe that only thru the intercession of the priesthood can the sinner be saved. Protestants believe that the sinner can save themselves by direct plea to Jesus.
Posted by: jakee308

That is incredibly incorrect theology.

You are already "saved" by Jesus' death and resurrection. There is no amount of prayer, fasting or other "works" that will save you, and nothing was BIGGER than that. That is the whole point of the New Testament. It was a New Testament in the Blood of Christ.
Your afterlife is determined by whether you believe in Him or not. And per Jesus' own words, if you accept Him on your deathbed, you are as saved as someone who has believed their whole life.
Prayer is important, in terms of "what is your will for me, Lord?"

The Lord's Prayers has traps, too. Is it "trespasses" or "debts / debtors". Does it end with "For thine is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory, forever" or should "and ever" be tacked on to the end of that?

God bless you, ace, for the work you produce.

You continue to regularly provide me (and many others) invaluable insights that would ordinarily go completely unobserved.

Your extensive reporting analysis on the traitorous Weekly Standard is NOT being mentioned on Drudge or other alternative outlets. (At least not that I have noticed.)

So as far as I am concerned, you are faithfully rendering an invaluable service to conservatives who simply do not have the time to carefully research this stuff themselves.

Thanks. And please keep up the great and invaluable work.

PS:
Oh yeah, and fuck those damn cucks at TWS!!
Bastards that they are. I hope each and every one of those conservative-posers need more than the maximum unemployment benefits the State offers them.
