What About Me? Sedition?

press

The days of journalistic integrity are long gone.  What was once considered a respected profession today’s “journalists” have turned to ruin.  The main stream media come up with stories they hope will come true and present them as facts.

It use to be that the press presented the facts and allowed their audience to draw their own conclusions.  We as a nation could count on them to inform us of the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.  After watching any event in its entirety and then watching the coverage of the very same event is an eye opener.  It is clear that the facts presented are misleading if not down right false.  The attempt to manipulate the audience is transparent.

The nightly news anchors of yesteryear held themselves to the highest of standards.  Today’s nightly news anchors hold themselves in their highest regard.  Instead of reporting news, far too often they are the news.

When it was announced that leakers of classified information would be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law the press only had one question.  “What about us?”  Who cares that there are those in our government committing treason?

When Steve Bannon referred to the press as an “enemy of the people” they all cried foul.  What true journalists would have done was ask themselves why Bannon called them that in the first place.  Could it be because they are not being honest with those that rely on them for the truth?

A free press is important in a free society.  So, when the main stream media becomes to busy trying to stir up trouble that they neglect the facts they do more harm than good.  At this point in time the press can not be relied on.

The main stream media’s agenda is clear.  If it doesn’t support the “Trump Evil” rhetoric they try to force down our throats daily, they don’t report it.  It seems odd that the only thing they report on is President Donald J. Trump.  Meanwhile the world turns and we the people are left uninformed.

It is bad enough that the main stream media is so mean and hateful towards President Trump.  But, President Trump is a big boy.  He did not get where he is today by being as “thin-skinned”, “psychotic”, “a thug” etc. that the press reports.  At the end of the day, Donald J. Trump is now and will forevermore be the 45th President of the United States of America.

Far worse is what the main stream media refuses to cover.  Instead of asking the questions that need to be asked they have become complicit in cover ups.  There are definitely a few rocks that need to be turned over regarding many things having nothing to do with the President.  Where is Clark Kent when we need him?

To all those narcissistic bullies hiding behind their press passes.  Here is a news flash.  There are limits to the rights afforded to the “free press”.  Everyone is allowed to print whatever they want without government restrictions.  However, the press is subject to laws of libel, obscenity, SEDITION, etc.

With “anonymous sources” used to support stories later in need of retraction regularly one might ask if the main stream media isn’t breaking libel laws.  Is rude, obnoxious behavior obscene?  Now for the big one.  Was it a confession when the reporter asked what about the press?

Sedition is defined as the incitement of decent or rebellion against government.  If the daily assaults on the President of the United States of America are not meant to take down a sitting President and our democracy as we know it, I don’t know what is.  Maybe it’s time for many in the main stream media to lawyer up.

Scaramucci’s Offensive Comments

scara

Mr. Scaramucci’s vulgar language was in poor taste.  Which is worst?  Saying rude obnoxious things during a private conversation?  Printing the drivel for no constructive purpose?  You be the judge.

According to the First Amendment Anthony Scaramucci has the right to say whatever he wants.  Thanks to God he has been given free will.  There is no question that his comments were offensive.  So why didn’t they offend me?  They certainly should have.

The language used in Scaramucci’s statements was mild compared to what  we have been being exposed to for far too long.  It seems that we as a Nation have become desensitized to such things.  Movies, music, television shows, video games, social media and much more have made permissive sex, foul language, violence and deviance of all kinds commonplace.

Democratic Congress members push each other out of their way to get to the nearest camera to bash President Trump.  They certainly are not shy about using vulgarity when referring to the President of The United States of America along with anyone else not buying what they are selling.

The main stream media engages in daily attacks on the President of the United States of America slinging mud that is certainly offensive lacking any sense of decorum.  For those same people affected with verbal diarrhea to feign outrage over the words used by Anthony Scaramucci is absurd.

US Congress Or Bedlam?

congress1

The main stream media fixated on Russia, Russia, Russia is desperately searching for one iota of proof to hang their hats on.  Fiction or fact it is worth spending twenty-four hours a day talking about on the Fake News Networks.  Citing imaginary friends as sources they declare President Trump spoke with President Putin in a “secret meeting” during a dinner party attended by twenty world leaders and their significant others in full view of them all.  Oh my!

Back at the United States Congress there is nothing to report.  Nothing ever gets done.  Democrats derelict their duty daily.  With no solutions for the problems this Nation faces, they spend what little time they are in Washington, DC complaining, lying, fear mongering and appointing a special counsel to conduct a witch hunt.

Big deal, the special counsel appointed was rejected by President Trump as the Director of the FBI the day before his appointment as special counsel.  So what if said special counsel hired Hillary Clinton’s lawyer and big DNC contributors to investigate President Trump.  Sounds fair.

Not long before leaker Comey was fired Democrats in Congress called for his head.  However, when President Trump fired him the Democrats all but declared Comey a saint.  Then the Democrats insinuated it was because Comey was investigating President Trump, which Comey stated under oath he was not.  Clearly the FBI ceased to function the day Comey was fired.  Wait, that was more fake news.  It seems the professionals in the FBI never missed a beat.

Obamacare has repealed itself.  Yet Democrats refuse to admit it at the same time whining that Republicans must fix it.  One has to ask: If it isn’t broken why they want Republicans to fix it?  Democratic Congress Members forsake their constituents daily to further their own self-serving agenda.

Then there are the Republicans.  Running around in circles they get nowhere.  At least they are trying, very trying.  In defense of Republicans, Congress was never meant to run by consensus.  We are a democracy after all.  With Democrats to busy pulling sophomoric pranks to do their jobs, Republicans are forced to do just that.

Any hope of advancing the plight of the American People rests on the ability of Republican Congress Members to agree on something, anything.  Compromising is something we learn as small children.  Apparently Republicans have not retained those life lessons.

The resulting scene in Congress is one of madness, chaos and great confusion.  It is a perfect example of bedlam.  Where is the main stream media’s righteous indignation?  If it does not support their “Trump evil” agenda they can’t cover it.  To do so they would have to admit they have backed themselves into a corner with all their fictitious Trump hysteria.

Loony Left – If Only They Would

fl

There was a time in the United States when the words we pledge our allegiance with meant something.  Many of our citizens fought for our right to say them.  Many of those died so that we might live freely in a democracy.

Presidents come and Presidents go.  It is not the person filling the office but, the office itself that makes this country great.  However, an attack of a sitting President is a threat to our democracy.

Whether you love President Trump or hate him, is irrelevant.  Donald J. Trump is now and will forevermore be the 45th President of the United States of America.  Only time will tell whether or not he was a good one.  In the meantime we need to let the man do his job.

The daily salacious headlines crying wolf based on gossip and supported by anonymous sources do more harm than good for the United States.  We are a nation where people are innocent until proven guilty.  Yet our main stream media act as judge, jury and executioner.

Speculation on what may or may not be true is nothing more than that.  The idea that democrats lie and the media swears to it is absurd.  Are those on the left staying up at night developing the melody of the moment in their The Sky Is Falling song so narcissistic to believe it will be business as usual if their coup attempts were successful?

Democrats in Congress and the media are opening Pandora’s Box.  We are a nation of law and order based on the United States Constitution.  Those trying to undermine President Trump can only succeed by undermining the principles the United States of America was founded on.

The lack of respect, civility and common decency practiced daily by those trying to further their own self-serving agenda is disgraceful.  President Trump is sixty-eight years old.  He has been in the public eye for most of his adult life.  Any connection to Russia would have been discovered long ago.

If a group of malcontents can successfully take down a sitting President what chance do the rest of us have?  If the President can be slandered on a daily basis what chance do the rest of us have?  Guilty of something, the loony left has no idea what.  But, they will keep on looking.

The media have backed themselves into a corner.  The complete and total lack of facts to back up the drivel they spew based on anonymous sources have made what use to be a respected profession nothing more than a joke.  The airwaves are filled daily with hysterical fear mongers. The transparency of the propaganda makes the media look unhinged.

The media has painted a fictitious picture that cannot be supported with actual facts.  Their desperation more apparent daily, forces them to present more and more speculation.  The more speculation the press presents as fact the less we as a nation can rely on them.

If the Trump administration fails so do the American people in more ways than one.  Rational people outside Washington, DC are busy trying to put food on the table.  Everyone and their brother are investigating anyone and everything Trump.

A novel idea might be to wait for the results of actual investigations based on facts before drawing conclusions.  Unfortunately our main stream media has written the story and hope like hell the investigations will make them true.  However, if the investigations produce no crime the United States press will be reduced to a laughing-stock of the world.

The Sky IS Falling

md9

When President Donald J. Trump said the FAKE news media was  an “enemy of the people” he was right.  Instead of wearing it, those the shoe fit cried “evil”.  What else could they do?  The only other option was to do a little soul-searching.

Gone are the days of journalistic integrity.  Daily Press Briefings highlight the media’s tabloid mentality.  Like children they interrupt responses with “how come?”, “why not?”.  Reporters ask redundant questions when the answer is not the one they need to fit the story they have already written.

The coverage after the briefing is astounding.  One has to wonder what press briefing they refer to because the account is far from the reality.  Grasping at straws they regurgitate the democrats theme song.  “The Sky Is Falling” with a resounding chorus of  “Russia, Russia, Russia”.

One thing is for certain.  The White House Press Corps is far from professional.  Somewhere a long the line they have lost their way.  While the world passes them by they spend all their time attempting to take down the President of The United States of America to meet the needs of their political agenda.

Reduced to nothing more than the mouth piece of the Democratic Party, the media spins the narrative they have created.  Salacious headlines cry wolf.  But, the facts they present scream otherwise.  When all is said and done their stories turn out to be much ado about nothing yet again.

Melodramatic fear mongering has become a tool of their trade.  It is hard to take someone constantly in crisis seriously.  Yet that is what viewers are expected to do.  In the end all that is accomplished is needlessly frightening the vulnerable and being dismissed by many as not credible.

Meanwhile there are many things going on around us that are minimally covered or not at all.  Instead of telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth the media  reports what they want us to think.  They no longer provide a service to the public.  At this point in time the media is practicing yellow journalism without remorse.

Reporters appear shallow while lacking critical thinking skills.  Fixating on the assumption everything President Trump does is evil they ignore the facts that prove otherwise.

The coverage of the James Comey firing is a good example.  In the press briefing all but one in the press attacked the messengers and focused on what day would have been better to fire Comey.  Trump’s tweet saying Comey better tell the truth and hope there are no tapes of conversations before he leaks to the press as a result of Comey’s quote in the news was their smoking gun.

The majority of the media brain pool insisted that Comey being fired was an attempt by the President to stop Comey from investigating him.  If those pushing the melody of the moment actually believe it they are incompetent, if they don’t they are corrupt.  The tweet was a threat according to the democrats’ lynch mob.

To begin with Comey was not investigating President Trump.  The United States Congress House and Senate and the FBI are investigating Russian interference into our elections.  The FBI functioned just as well after Comey was fired under the direction of the acting director who by the way has strong ties to the democratic Party.  To imply otherwise is an insult to all those in the FBI who serve this country.

Alleging the tweet was a threat is absurd.  What exactly was the threat?  If James Comey lies about conversations with the President he should be aware there maybe recordings of those conversations.  So in other words if he lies he might be proven wrong.  It is the White House, James Comey was the Director of the FBI.  One would hope there is outstanding surveillance and of all people James Comey should know exactly where, when and what is in the White House.

The one press member that gave me hope asked relevant questions.  Does the President know who he intends to replace Comey with?  What is the expected time frame for replacing Comey?

With so many democrats and media members demanding James Comey’s head and then feigning outrage when they got it makes them appear disingenuous at best.  With anything and everything being recorded and put out there for the world to see it is impossible to hide the hypocrisy.

Democrats Want To Talk About A Coup

coup

Democrats and the loony left media want to talk about a coup.  Let’s talk.  In the newest verse of the Democrats’ theme song The Sky Is Falling followed by the same old chorus Russia, Russia, Russia they accuse President Trump of attempting a coup.

To start with, President Donald J. Trump is the 45th President of the United States of America.  If he wants to take over himself who are we to stop him?  It is not a coup.  It is his job.

Democrats with Nancy Pelosi’s daughter leading the revolution attempted to intimidate Electoral College Members into forsaking the voters they swore to represent.  Their intent to overthrow the 45th President before he was even inaugurated.  Now that is an attempted coup.

November 9, 2016 democrats in Congress and the mainstream media began their chant to overthrow President Trump.  Publicly stating every chance they get that they intend to take down President Trump.  At not so private retreats funded by deep pockets democrats in Congress planned their line of attack to take down the President.  Now that is an attempt at a coup.

A news outlet providing one candidate but, not the other with the questions prior to a debate may not be an attempt at a coup.  However when you hear that same news outlet complain about Russia trying to influence voters in our election it is hard not to laugh.  It takes one to know one.

For months the media and democrats have demanded that FBI Director James Comey be fired.  When President Trump fired him the democrats accused the President of attempting a coup against himself.

As a political appointee, the Director of the FBI serves at the President’s will and can be fired or hired at the President’s discretion.  When President Bill Clinton fired another Director of the FBI the democrats, media, republicans and anybody in their right mind did not have a problem with it.

The disgrace comes from the fear mongering, lies and melodrama provided by the democrats and the media.  They know their arguments don’t hold water so they dissect every syllable twisting it to fit whatever villanous story they are trying to spin.

According to democrats and media the timing is proof that President Trump is attempting a coup by trying to stop any investigation into his alledged Russia connection.  Knowing full well how absurd their claim is, they regurgitate it over and over again.

In reality the democrats and media chanting the loudest all know that the FBI never missed a beat.  Any and all investigations being worked on before Comey was fired continue to be worked on.  They know that there are ongoing investigations in both the House and Senate.

Neither democrats in Congress or the so-called mainstream media believe for one instance that the United States Of America is in a crisis because President Trump fired James Comey.  Without batting an eye they use fear to undermine the President.  Now that is an attempt at a coup.

Every time you turn around the democrats are whining about something.  The outrage of the moment is shared  by them all almost verbatim.  Each accusation more bizarre than the last.

Democrats inform the nation that people will die in the streets if Obamacare is repealed.  People were not dying in the street before Obamacare and they won’t be after Obamacare.  Instead of trying to help fix the debacle they created, democrats fight to stop the republicans from cleaning up their mess.

Crying wolf every waking moment is not meant to help the American people.  It is yet another example of trying to take over the United States Congress and the White House.  Democrats and the left-wing propagandists spend all their time on attempting to oust Trump in a coup.  All the while the real stories go right over their heads.

Press Is No Friend Of The People!

md9

Gone are the days that the press tells the Nation the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.  The American people are no longer given the facts and allowed to come to their own conclusions.

On election night the  Nation watched as the media  imploded.  Their disdain for the newly elected Donald J. Trump made it clear they would not be capable of  covering the President honestly.

Thankfully everything is recorded.  Watching the actual event and hearing the media coverage is bizarre.  Instead of giving all the facts, the media puts their spin on it.  Their “Trump is Evil” message is clear.

The behavior in the daily press briefings is jaw dropping.  Journalists behave like a pack of wolves ready to attack their prey, Sean Spicer.  The tone is noxious.  Leading questions meant to diminish the President are repeated over and over when Spicer doesn’t answer in accordance with their script.

One of the esteemed reporters had the audacity to ask the White House Press Secretary if he was going to lie.  An honest person and a liar would answer the same.  One has to wonder if the question was meant to impugn the integrity of Sean Spicer or just plain ridiculous.

The fact that Russia has tried to interfere in all our elections is nothing new.  Media outlets jumped on it.  Hacking into the DNC server was automatically assumed to prove a Trump – Russia connection.  Although it happened during the primaries they did not assume it was meant to help Bernie Sanders.  After all Sanders did honeymoon in Russia.

The media continues to blur the line between fact and fiction.  Their self-indulgent desire to further their own political agenda diminishes their credibility daily.  Fear mongering, lies and innuendos are now  the tools of the trade.  Journalistic integrity is long gone.

Twenty-four hours a day the airwaves are filled with opinion, speculation and interpretation .  Instead of meaningful discussions, commentators shout over one another.  If that doesn’t work they revert to childish name calling.

Rather than provide the American People with  facts the media attack the President of The United States of America.  Headlines calling Trump names warn the people the sky is falling.  Then they gloat at the low approval ratings that they have caused.

Already looking ahead to the 2020 election,  the goal of the media is clear.  November 9, 2016 was the start of their campaign to destroy President Trump in an attempt to influence our next election.

So when I hear broadcast journalists dramatically denounce Russia for attempting to influence the election I can only shake my head in disbelief.  If that is not the pot calling the kettle black, I don’t know what is.

For eight years the main stream media worshipped at the feet of President Obama.  With a tingle up a leg they lulled the American people into a false sense of security.  All the while spinning the coverage into what they wanted us to believe.

During those same eight years many in the press provided cover to the President they swore to protect at all costs.  Even at the expense of the People.  Statements made today by President Trump are vilified while similar statements made by President Obama were praised.

While the press is busy chasing their tails trying to find one iota of proof of the Trump connection to Russia the real stories are ignored.  Instead of investigating leaks, unmasking, Obama’s January 5, 2017 order sharing raw intelligence data with anyone who was curious and civil liberty violations of American citizens, the media makes up excuses.

United States Representative Devin Nunes held a press briefing telling the world that he had found evidence of unmasking of citizens associated with President Trump having nothing to do with Russia.  Nunes clearly stated to the press that he was on his way to inform the President.

The press responded with attacks of Devin Nunes.  Implying he was sneaky and couldn’t be trusted.  What the press did not do was investigate the allegations.

A Hillary Clinton advisor, Evelyn Farkus described on a national network how she tampered with evidence.  Stating if the Trump Administration knew what they knew and how they knew it there would be trouble.  Farkus went on to say she wanted to get hold of all the information she could before the Obama Administration left because she was afraid that high-ranking officials in the Obama Administration would destroy it on the way out the door.  The only people protected with the lack of evidence would be those in the Obama Administration.  However, the main stream media downplayed the story.

Susan Rice, a high-ranking official in the Obama Administration stated that she had no knowledge of the unmasking of private citizens that US Congressman Devin Nunes was talking about.  Then two weeks later Rice confessed that she was the one who requested the unmasking which led to the leaking.  Rice then denied that she leaked them herself.

In runs the press.  Presto, according to the media Rice said she didn’t do it, case closed.  This is the same Susan Rice that was caught lying about what actually transpired in Benghazi and more.  The press would prefer the American people remain uninformed on the matter.

What was once thought of as an esteemed profession has reduced itself to a propaganda machine practicing yellow journalism with integrity no where in sight.

So when President Trump referred to the press as the “enemy of the people” he was not wrong.  Rather than look themselves in the mirror, the press interpreted the comment to be evil.  That way no self-reflection was necessary.
