I give you Charles Johnson the founder of the feast!

‘I’ll give you Mr Scrooge, the Founder of the Feast.’

‘The Founder of the Feast indeed.’ cried Mrs Cratchit, red­den­ing. ‘I wish I had him here. I’d give him a piece of my mind to feast upon, and I hope he’d have a good appetite for it.’

Charles Dick­ens A Christ­mas Carol 1843

When you think of con­ser­v­a­tive media there are three names that instantly come to mind. Rush Lim­baugh, Matt Drudge and Fox News

Rush Lim­baugh, Matt Drudge and Fox News are all at the top of their fields. The left con­stantly hits all three but Rush has been the #1 talk radio show for decades, Matt Drudge’s web site is in the top 100 nation­wide and top 500 world­wide (think of how many porn sites out­drawn) and Fox News has been on top so long a post-​election dip in rat­ings was news all over the web and on their rival sta­tion that con­ve­niently neglect to men­tion their own pathetic rat­ings in their stories.

Granted all three deserve credit for their own suc­cess but it’s not pos­si­ble with­out decades of help from the MSM.

Years of bland biased radio gave Rush Lim­baugh his open­ing, Fox took up a man­tle that nobody else on TV was will­ing to carry and rode it to #1 spot in cable news, and Newsweek might still be a national mag­a­zine if they didn’t for­feit their scoop on Mon­ica Lewin­sky & Bill Clin­ton to Matt Drudge who beats the now online only Newsweek by a fac­tor of 10.

Put sim­ply the media cre­ated the con­di­tions for all of these con­ser­v­a­tive plat­forms to thrive.

Here on the web the left is no less pro­lific. With Soros money and blog­gers on salary the left is able to cre­ate instant pub­lic opin­ion or at least its illu­sion. In response the inde­pen­dent blog­gers work­ing on a shoe­string have become a force in response.

As long­time read­ers of this blog and lis­ten­ers to the radio show know I lost my Com­puter Job 5 years ago. Dur­ing my failed pur­suit of a job in my field, I started my old blog. My break­out moment came when I hosted Robert Stacy McCain to cover the improb­a­ble Scott Brown, how­ever even that came about because of another event even more improbable

Stacy McCain while still at his old blog was attacked by Charles John­son of LGF dur­ing his final er “change” I had been a fan of both blogs at the time and cov­ered the clash not­ing peo­ple who knew Stacy per­son­ally defended him and had a prob­lem with Johnson’s tac­tics:

I saw Charles accu­sa­tions con­cern­ing Robert, they were seri­ous not only in terms of his career as a reporter and some­one sup­port­ing a fam­ily of 6 but in terms of honor. The next day after react­ing with right­eous anger over the state­ments Robert answered and pro­vided expla­na­tions as well. They more than sat­is­fied me and I take him at his word…However there is another fac­tor here, Robert Stacy McCain is the father of six. Those six carry his name and to some degree his rep­u­ta­tion. He is fight­ing for their honor, his father honor and his great grandfather’s honor. He also as a father has to set the exam­ple for his chil­dren to stand up for them­selves. If he lets this go with­out sat­is­fac­tion he the exam­ple he will be set­ting will be ter­ri­ble. As a father I see it and nod.

Even­tu­ally I found my self Banned from LGF along with a friend then called by Stacy McCain for the first time.  a con­ver­sa­tion that ended in friendship.

That friend­ship that led to the Scott Brown team-​up, my first CPAC visit, a place on the Tea Party Express bus, even­tu­ally to the Mitt Rom­ney “vic­tory” party and to this day where the blog has been ranked 101 on the list of top 150 con­ser­v­a­tive web sites and to you dear read­ers over the last two weeks pro­vid­ing me with the first two semi reg­u­lar pay­checks I’ve received since George Bush was president.

But none of this hap­pens with­out John­son attack­ing Stacy McCain.

Now based on a 40 hour work (in real­ity is a 7 day a week job reg­u­larly work­ing 80 hours) read­ing, writ­ing, research­ing, or call­ing peo­ple con­cern­ing sto­ries or cov­er­ing them myself for the show or the blog the fol­low­ing formula…

Sixty Read­ers Giv­ing $20 Dol­lars for Twelve Months = My Weekly $300 Paycheck

…works out to $7.50 an hour before taxes but I sus­pect the idea of an inde­pen­dent con­ser­v­a­tive blog able to sup­port itself by reader con­tri­bu­tions would still annoy Charles John­son to no end.

The even­tual goal is to make the radio pay enough to dou­ble that fig­ure and get me back at least to the level I was draw­ing when I col­lected unem­ploy­ment and if I work even harder some­day to the weekly $800 pay­check that allowed me to build the sav­ings our fam­ily exhausted over the Obama years. That would annoy Charles John­son even more

But if 60 peo­ple x $2012 to fund a sin­gle con­ser­v­a­tive blog­ger annu­ally how much angrier can we make the entire left with just a lit­tle tweak, but that is a post for tomor­row morning.

Yes­ter­day was a National Hol­i­day although not for the blog but it was a hol­i­day for DaTipJar

Sunday’s tip jar hit still puts us $25 ahead of last week at this time but far behind the goal of the weekly paycheck.

It takes only 14 peo­ple kick­ing in $20 to pay the bills in a week. Con­sider being one of them, it will annoy the left to no end.

When you think of conservative media there are three names that instantly come to mind. Rush Limbaugh, Matt Drudge and Fox News

Rush Limbaugh, Matt Drudge and Fox News are all at the top of their fields. The left constantly hits all three but Rush has been the #1 talk radio show for decades, Matt Drudge’s web site is in the top 100 nationwide and top 500 worldwide (think of how many porn sites outdrawn) and Fox News has been on top so long a post-election dip in ratings was news all over the web and on their rival station that conveniently neglect to mention their own pathetic ratings in their stories.

Granted all three deserve credit for their own success but it’s not possible without decades of help from the MSM.

Years of bland biased radio gave Rush Limbaugh his opening, Fox took up a mantle that nobody else on TV was willing to carry and rode it to #1 spot in cable news, and Newsweek might still be a national magazine if they didn’t forfeit their scoop on Monica Lewinsky & Bill Clinton to Matt Drudge who beats the now online only Newsweek by a factor of 10.

Put simply the media created the conditions for all of these conservative platforms to thrive.

Here on the web the left is no less prolific. With Soros money and bloggers on salary the left is able to create instant public opinion or at least its illusion. In response the independent bloggers working on a shoestring have become a force in response.

As longtime readers of this blog and listeners to the radio show know I lost my Computer Job 5 years ago. During my failed pursuit of a job in my field, I started my old blog. My breakout moment came when I hosted Robert Stacy McCain to cover the improbable Scott Brown, however even that came about because of another event even more improbable

Stacy McCain while still at his old blog was attacked by Charles Johnson of LGF during his final er “change”  I had been a fan of both blogs at the time and covered the clash noting people who knew Stacy personally defended him and had a problem with Johnson’s tactics:

I saw Charles accusations concerning Robert, they were serious not only in terms of his career as a reporter and someone supporting a family of 6 but in terms of honor. The next day after reacting with righteous anger over the statements Robert answered and provided explanations as well. They more than satisfied me and I take him at his word…However there is another factor here, Robert Stacy McCain is the father of six. Those six carry his name and to some degree his reputation. He is fighting for their honor, his father honor and his great grandfather’s honor. He also as a father has to set the example for his children to stand up for themselves. If he lets this go without satisfaction he the example he will be setting will be terrible. As a father I see it and nod.

Eventually I found my self Banned from LGF along with a friend then called by Stacy McCain for the first time.  a conversation that ended in friendship.

That friendship that led to the Scott Brown team-up, my first CPAC visit, a place on the Tea Party Express bus, eventually to the Mitt Romney “victory” party and to this day where the blog has been ranked 101 on the list of top 150 conservative web sites and to you dear readers over the last two weeks providing me with the first two semi regular paychecks I’ve received since George Bush was president.

But none of this happens without Johnson attacking Stacy McCain.

Now based on a 40 hour work  (in reality is a 7 day a week job regularly working 80 hours) reading, writing, researching, or calling people concerning stories or covering them myself for the show or the blog the following formula…

Sixty Readers Giving $20 Dollars for Twelve Months = My Weekly $300 Paycheck

…works out to $7.50 an hour before taxes but I suspect the idea of an independent conservative blog able to support itself by reader contributions would still annoy Charles Johnson to no end.

The eventual goal is to make the radio pay enough to double that figure and get me back at least to the level I was drawing when I collected unemployment and if I work even harder someday to the weekly $800 paycheck that allowed me to build the savings our family exhausted over the Obama years.  That would annoy Charles Johnson even more

But if 60 people  x $20 x 12 to fund a single conservative blogger annually how much angrier can we make the entire left with just a little tweak, but that is a post for tomorrow morning.

Yesterday was a National Holiday although not for the blog but it was a holiday for DaTipJar

Sunday’s tip jar hit still puts us $25 ahead of last week at this time but far behind the goal of the weekly paycheck.

It takes only 14 people kicking in $20 to pay the bills in a week. Consider being one of them, it will annoy the left to no end.
