The New York Times Gives In to the Mob. All the Adults are Gone!

Saying that “Twitter has become its ultimate editor,” New York Times columnist and editor Bari Weiss resigned yesterday with a scathing letter to the paper.

Weiss, one of the few centrist voices at The Times, said she faced bullying at the paper for her views, and that the free exchange of ideas on the opinion pages was now dead. The search for truth has been replaced by “orthodoxy already known to an enlightened few whose job is to inform everyone else.”

In the letter addressed to publisher A.G. Sulzberger, Weiss bemoans how the Times has strayed from the ideals laid out by Adolph Ochs in 1896, that the paper should publish “all shades of opinion.”

In part, here is Weiss’ resignation letter:

It is with sadness that I write to tell you that I am resigning from The New York Times.

I joined the paper with gratitude and optimism three years ago. I was hired with the goal of bringing in voices that would not otherwise appear in your pages: first-time writers, centrists, conservatives and others who would not naturally think of The Times as their home. The reason for this effort was clear: The paper’s failure to anticipate the outcome of the 2016 election meant that it didn’t have a firm grasp of the country it covers. Dean Baquet and others have admitted as much on various occasions. The priority in Opinion was to help redress that critical shortcoming.

But the lessons that ought to have followed the election — lessons about the importance of understanding other Americans, the necessity of resisting tribalism, and the centrality of the free exchange of ideas to a democratic society — have not been learned. Instead, a new consensus has emerged in the press, but perhaps especially at this paper: that truth isn’t a process of collective discovery, but an orthodoxy already known to an enlightened few whose job is to inform everyone else.

Twitter is not on the masthead of The New York Times. But Twitter has become its ultimate editor. As the ethics and mores of that platform have become those of the paper, the paper itself has increasingly become a kind of performance space. Stories are chosen and told in a way to satisfy the narrowest of audiences, rather than to allow a curious public to read about the world and then draw their own conclusions. I was always taught that journalists were charged with writing the first rough draft of history. Now, history itself is one more ephemeral thing molded to fit the needs of a predetermined narrative.

My own forays into Wrongthink have made me the subject of constant bullying by colleagues who disagree with my views. They have called me a Nazi and a racist; I have learned to brush off comments about how I’m “writing about the Jews again.” Several colleagues perceived to be friendly with me were badgered by coworkers. My work and my character are openly demeaned on company-wide Slack channels where masthead editors regularly weigh in. There, some coworkers insist I need to be rooted out if this company is to be a truly “inclusive” one, while others post ax emojis next to my name. Still other New York Times employees publicly smear me as a liar and a bigot on Twitter with no fear that harassing me will be met with appropriate action. They never are.

There are terms for all of this: unlawful discrimination, hostile work environment, and constructive discharge. I’m no legal expert. But I know that this is wrong.

What rules that remain at The Times are applied with extreme selectivity. If a person’s ideology is in keeping with the new orthodoxy, they and their work remain unscrutinized. Everyone else lives in fear of the digital thunderdome. Online venom is excused so long as it is directed at the proper targets.

Op-eds that would have easily been published just two years ago would now get an editor or a writer in serious trouble, if not fired. If a piece is perceived as likely to inspire backlash internally or on social media, the editor or writer avoids pitching it.

What’s Going On?

Weiss was an unusual fit at the New York Times. It is a rare occurrence when a young writer at that paper still maintains a sense of providing its readers looks into both sides of political policies — not just that of the Millennials who gorge daily on Twitter and Snap Chat. Weiss honored the institution of Journalism. She is not a patsy and never hesitated to pen her thoughts on any applicable subject.

But she also allowed for considerable room for readers to hold an OPPOSITE opinion. After all, Journalism is supposed to be a free marketplace of ideas.

The marketplace of The Times is anything but open to multiple ideas on ANY subject.

“Bari Weiss’s letter was tame,” a New York Times insider said. She could have named names. She could have said, “There are dozens of other instances of bullying and harassment. Because there are.”

What took Weiss so long? Prominent writers at the Times never accepted her as a colleague. Instead, her colleagues on the opinion page sniped and leaked against her on Twitter from the first. Was it “tall poppy syndrome” – resentment of a young writer who, in an era when legacy media seem to be in perpetual crisis, landed a plum job at the Times? Or, as Weiss implies in her resignation letter, was it something nastier than mere jealousy – an ethical and legal failure that my source calls a ‘hostile workplace culture’?

The resignation letter she released on Tuesday alleges that Weiss, a liberal centrist who also happens to be a prominent Jewish supporter of Israel, has been called a “racist and Nazi” in her place of work and on Slack social media channels on which senior Times management are regular presences. She also says that the Times’s publisher, A.G. Sulzberger, and ‘other Times leaders have “stood by while simultaneously praising me in private for my courage.” Her letter is restrained, but still, what sources call “the actual horror of her daily life at her job” again comes across.

“It’s astounding, but it’s also instructive,” one source says. “This is what happens when management doesn’t lift a finger to defend you.”

As Weiss herself says, her verifiable claims could amount to a costly compensation case for the Times: “unlawful discrimination, hostile work environment, and constructive discharge.” The Times’s management may also have breached Title VII of the Civil Rights Act (1964), by failing to protect Weiss from “discrimination based on certain specified characteristics” including “race, color, national origin, sex, and religion.”

Weiss’s online enemies are already assuming that she jumped before she was pushed. That alone would confirm the impression of ethical collapse at the Times. The radical left is running the paper, and no dissent is tolerated – not even from a US senator. But the truth is that she left in disgust.

‘This was obviously her decision. It was just, “What am I doing here anymore? The place has gone mad.”’

It won’t stop with Weiss. Colleagues on the opinion pages and in the newsroom have ratcheted up their disdain for moderates and conservatives. Who’s next?

It’s harder to get rid of a weekly columnist than an editor like Weiss. It’s a much bigger stink if a columnist leaves. But the fish stinks from the head, and the owners have no guts.

Summary

In her resignation letter, Weiss blathered what must have been devouring her insides for months. She made clear what the internal issues are at the formerly top newspaper not just in the U.S. but in the World. Today, it is far from that. Why is that?

The Times editors and publisher have stepped to the side in silent approval of a pronounced swing to the far left — not just far-left politics, but far-left social and moral mindsets that heretofore been subjects of columns like those from Weiss. Today, they are nothing more than ho-hum tweets from pimple-faced teens opining about their barrage of tweets that embarrassed, humiliated (or both) subjects of their attacks.

With Weiss gone, The Times has relented to be little more than an extension of Twitter. Maybe the paper should change its prominent building signage in Manhattan. Based on what Americans see today, an applicable sign on their building would say: “Twitter-East.”

The Adults Have Left the “Twitter-East” Building!

Coincidence?

Some time things happen that cause you to just shake your head in disbelief: “How in the world do you think that could have even been possible? SMH!” Look at the picture of that little boy on the beach. He took his head off and dropped in the sand!

I think it is relatively safe to conclude this one thing: If something looks like it cannot possibly be actual or real, we almost always call it “a coincidence.” In actuality, if it seems like it cannot be genuine or real, it almost certainly IS NOT real! Another way of putting that is, “If it looks too good to be true, you can almost bet it isn’t true.”

These kinds of comparisons are prevalent in pretty much every part of our lives. If you google “coincidences,” you’ll get hundreds of examples of some of the strangest “coincidences” that often look real even though they are undoubtedly contrived. Most coincidences are not coincidences at all. Look at some of these pictures:

I doubt pretty seriously the girl actually painted grass all over her body and then put on a pair of cutoffs and a bikini top! I also don’t think that clouds are created with hot coffee and will sneak out of a coffee cup to spread across the sky.

Our world today is full of coincidences that each and everyone seems to be real. But we know IF we look close enough, we can see the attempted trick that is always included in each. I think the problem in America today is that too many people are content to just live at the 10,000-ft. Level instead of living at sea level. Two miles in the air, things look much different than they do at sea level. Because we all are prone to determine what something is based on OUR perspective of it in whatever surroundings we see it, we often ignore some of the tell-tale signs of the realities of things and happenings that we see in our lives every day. We take for granted in most cases that it appears to be legitimate, so it must be real!

Far too often, it’s NOT real at all. And that’s where our problems begin.

Can you Think of Any Coincidences in our World Today?

Oh my! There are far too many to count. But why don’t we do this: let’s list a few and breakdown a few of those so we all can understand that in 2020 (and in 2019, 2018, 2017, and 2016), there were far too many coincidences to be casual occurrences simply. In reality, most coincidences are just plans that have remained hidden — until just the right time.

 

Coincidence #1: the Trump Family

Our coincidences began when someone came across some books on the office of Congress’ Library website. The books are called, “Baron Trump’s Marvelous Underground Journey,” and, “1900; Or, The Last President.” Both were written in the 1890s by Ingersoll Lockwood. The books themselves are real. But wait, it gets better.

The plot of the first book about Baron Trump includes the story about a young boy who finds a secret portal and time travels. Dan Evon of Snopes.com gives a great, in-depth description of the eerie connection. “There are some incredible connections to be made to the first family of the United States and Lockwood’s novels from the turn of the 19th century. For starters, the main character’s name is the same as President Donald J. Trump’s son, albeit spelled differently. Trump’s adventures begin in Russia and are guided thanks to directions provided by ‘the master of all masters,’ a man named ‘Don.’ Before leaving for his voyage through the unknown, Trump is told of his family’s motto: ‘The pathway to glory is strewn with pitfalls and danger.’” But wait, it gets even creepier.

Lockwood wrote a sequel series of novels four years after the initial publication of his first book. In his third novel, “1900; Or, The Last President,” things link eerily to the present day. The story begins with a scene from a panicked New York City in early November. It describes a “state of uproar” after an election in which an enormously opposed outsider is granted power—an outsider candidate. Sound familiar? After the chaotic scene in NYC, we find out that the man who won the presidency is extraordinarily wealthy and resides on 5th avenue. In case you did not know, the Trump Tower lives on 5th avenue.

We’re just getting started!

Coincidence #2: COVID-19

Wuhan, where the virus originated, just happens to be the location of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, China’s only level 4 biosafety lab. Also curious is how quickly Wuhan purportedly became virus-free, and how other major Chinese cities such as Shanghai and Beijing weren’t affected. While the Chinese government quarantined Wuhan, the virus had already been around for months, potentially spread by Chinese New Year travel before the quarantine was placed. Yet the outbreak was quite limited and short-lived in China, unlike elsewhere, almost as if they were prepared.

Coincidence #3: from a Virus to Economic Disaster in Just Days

Just four months ago, Trump’s economy was on top of the world, literally. A booming stock market, strong economic growth, and record low unemployment was Trump’s first term legacy. What better way to derail a gangbuster economy than shutting it down due to a viral pandemic? It would be an ideal way to weaken a president ahead of an election. So what if there was collateral damage? Trump is the existential threat to the deep globalist state, and the ends justify the means.

A viral outbreak, whether hatched in a laboratory or a wet market, could have been a nuisance like past outbreaks. Yet this one was treated far differently, devastating world economies.

What a coincidence in timing.

Coincidence #4: Mysterious One Million Trump Tulsa Rally Tickets

The Trump Campaign gleefully announced for two weeks that their first rally since the start of the pandemic was quickly packed far beyond capacity: one million tickets had been snatched up! Who can forget what happened at showtime that Saturday night? When the television lights went on, the BOK Center in Tulsa looked to be not even half full. What went wrong? Where are all those who claimed those one million tickets?

As part of a coordinated effort, K-pop fans and teenage TikTok users scooped up tickets to President Trump’s rally in Tulsa, potentially leaving at least hundreds of empty seats, The New York Times reported. A tweet from the Trump campaign June 11th urged people to use their phones to register for the free tickets. The K-pop fans shared the information and encouraged their followers to get tickets, and then not show up for the rally. The plan quickly caught on on TikTok, where people followed the K-pop fans’ lead.

CNN credited Iowa grandmother Mary Jo Laupp with leading part of the charge on the video platform. She posted a TikTok video two weeks before the rally encouraging people to “go reserve tickets now and leave him standing alone there on the stage.”

We could spend your entire day listing coincidence after coincidence regarding numerous political events during this presidency. There are far too many to number. But there are some significant ones that we must share here to get you thinking and looking for more of this ahead of the November 3rd election. We’ll just list them in bullet points.

  • Was it a coincidence that the soap opera removal of the federal attorney of the Southern District of New York happened as it did and when it did? Geoffrey Berman was a powerful attorney who regularly dealt with high profile cases that involved some of the most influential people in Washington and elsewhere. Berman and Barr clashed multiple times over the handling of several different cases involving politics and even foreign governments. When Berman was ousted, CNN and other leftist media outlets accused Barr of sidelining Berman because he prosecuted Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen and an ongoing case against NYC former Mayor Guiliani. Those news outlets forgot that Barr was not the Attorney General when those cases happened. But there’s an odd coincidence that occurred immediately upon the firing of Berman. Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein’s former girlfriend and accused accomplice in Epstein’s sex trafficking business had been under surveillance by U.S. intelligence agencies living in a mansion in New Hampshire. Indictments of her were issued but were not executed UNTIL Berman’s termination. Is that a coincidence? It seems that Berman was connected to some high power Americans and foreign dignitaries that had been fingered as being complicit in the Epstein criminal activity. It was widely thought that Berman would have gone light on Epstein if he had not committed suicide and would undoubtedly have done the same in the prosecution of Maxwell. Immediately after his firing, agents arrested Ghislaine in New Hampshire. She has told the world she’s ready to talk. Who knows who and how many of these powerful men and women will be implicated by her testimony. Many thought with Berman handling the case, she would be coddled in her prosecution and might even have walked. Coincidence?
  • Let’s go back several years — to the early 60s. Lee Harvey Oswald was a loner, a political dissident who had close ties to Cuba and a Russian wife. He was not a fan of President John F. Kennedy. He was fingered as the lone gunman who assassinated the President in Dallas. Surprisingly, two days after Oswald was arrested, he was being moved to another facility. During the transfer, a man named Jack Ruby — a high roller and owner of a bar — mysteriously appeared in the basement of the Dallas police station, walked right up to Oswald. The latter was being escorted by several detectives to a car and shot and killed Oswald. It was later revealed that Oswald had terminal cancer and would not have lasted long. And Ruby knew about that before the shooting. Coincidence?

Summary

Let’s end this with some “today” coincidences. We’ll do these in bullet points as well:

 

Timing

  • Was it a coincidence that Attorney General Jeff Sessions was appointed by the president only to recuse himself from the Russia Collusion investigation almost immediately immediately?
  • Was it a coincidence that his successor, Rod Rosenstein, immediately appointed his good friend Robert Mueller as Special Counsel for that investigation shortly after Mueller had met in the Oval Office to discuss Mueller becoming FBI Director because of the firing of James Comey? (Rosenstein and Mueller are close friends and had worked together multiple times)
  • Was it a coincidence that Russia was (and still is) the focus of EVERY Democrat in Congress, every media outlet, every day regarding any news or discussions about election interference, which Russia preferred in 2016 to be President and the same thing for 2020? Did the fact that Hillary Clinton funded the production of a fake document that implicated then-candidate Donald Trump for massive wrongdoings in Russia? And why was that fact never revealed until after Mueller brought no Trump impeachable finding to Congress?
  • Was it a coincidence that shortly after the Mueller report, Democrats morphed immediately into Ukraine-Gate? It was to the surprise to many when revealed that former Vice President Biden had threatened to withhold U.S. aid to Ukraine if they did not first fire a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating Biden’s son for financial wrongdoing. Was it a coincidence that before that alleged wrongdoing by the Bidens could be investigated, the Democrats found a way to turn that into an impeachment attack against President Trump. Coincidence?
  • Was it a coincidence when immediately after the failure of the impeachment of Donald Trump, the Wuhan COVID-19 pandemic was used by Washington to begin the systemic destruction of the greatest economy in World history? Not only did they use the fear of the unknown about the virus, but they also transitioned that into the necessary shutdown of the nation, unemployment of 40 million Americans with no certainty of the details, and the scope of the virus. Coincidence?
  • Was it multiple coincidences that the World’s foremost virologists and epidemiologists of the Centers for Disease Control were pushed on President Trump as the “experts” of how to handle the coronavirus? That happened to then only force Americans to make critical decisions every day based on faulty information that was wrong as many times as it was right. Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx were and still are so mixed up and unsure about what is valid, what is necessary, what is prudent, and what things are not that Americans today are still uncertain about what and who to believe. Coincidence?
  • Was it a coincidence that the drug Hydroxychloroquine that had been prescribed for 60 years to treat malaria and other infectious diseases in America successfully? Dr. Fauci began trials for a coronavirus vaccine weeks before the first U.S. coronavirus case was confirmed. Was that a coincidence?
  • Was it a coincidence that immediately upon notification that the pandemic looked to not be as critical as first thought that protests and demonstrations and racial unrest would sweep through the nation following the death at the hands of four policemen of one black man?
  • Was it a coincidence that the pandemic lockdown stopped the convening of grand juries in several criminal cases regarding the wrongdoing of many politically connected members from the Obama Administration? Many in the nation thought that Attorney John Durham would have begun releasing indictments in those cases long before the November election. It appears now not to be possible.
  • Is it a coincidence that Democrats are pleading for school systems around the nation to cancel classes for the Fall? One Louisiana state senator sent a letter today to the Lousiana Board of Education advising them to not only cancel school classes, but every athletic event, training, practicing, and anything else that involves close contact between athletes, but to make that mandatory for the entire 2020-2021 athletic season for all sports.

We MUST stop there! There are hundreds more. It’s amazing what creative people who have deep embedded anger and hatred for others can build from pure hatred. But we see it happen over and over again, all of which is certainly not coincidental. And few people today will even deny that there is no way for it to BE coincidental.

But don’t weary: we still have five months before the election. You can bet we’ll see many more coincidental things that happen on the national stage.

Stay tuned!

It’s Not a Revolution — It’s the Exact Opposite

America is not in the middle of a revolution — it is a reactionary “putsch” — or a coordinated attempt to overthrow a government. It started four years ago immediately upon a group of people understanding that their long quiet and deadly push to the left politically had been railroaded by a conservative billionaire from Queens. What people are they? The sort of people who had acquired position and influence as a result of globalization who suddenly found themselves out of power for the first time in decades. They watched in horror as voters across the world chose Brexit in the UK, Donald Trump and other populist and conservative-nationalist candidates in the U.S.

Those four sentences explain the storm of unrest battering American cities from coast to coast and making waves in Europe as well. The storm’s ferocity — the looting, the mobs, the mass lawlessness, the deranged slogans like #DefundPolice — terrifies ordinary Americans. Many conservatives believe they are facing a revolution targeting the very foundations of American order.

But when national institutions bow (or kneel) to the street fighters’ demands, it should tell us that something else is going on. We aren’t dealing with a Marxist revolt, even if some within this uproar scream hard-left rhetoric. What’s playing out is a counter-revolution of the entrenched elitist class — academia, media, large corporations, ‘experts,’ Big Tech — against the nationalist revolution launched in 2016 when Donald Trump shot their balloon out of the sky. The supposed insurgents and the elites are marching in the streets together, taking the knee together.

They’re not seeking some new arrangement, but a return to the pre-Trump status quo which was working out very well for them. It was working out less-well for the working class of all races, who bore the brunt of their preferred policy mix: open borders, free trade without limits, aggressive cultural liberalism that destroyed tradition and community, and a ‘global governance’ that purposely handicapped democracy and politics.

Conservatives generally don’t tend to pay much attention to class analysis. But in this case, it does help to explain what’s going on. And it helps to shine a light of the truth of social movements that disguise themselves and can get mistaken for revolutionary leftism. We at TruthNewsNetwork have called it that way. Why? Because we could find no other purpose for all that is happening than that.

Does anyone seriously believe the American establishment — Walmart, Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, the trustees of Ivy League universities, the major sports leagues, even Brooks Brothers, for God’s sake — would sign on to a movement that genuinely threatened its material interests? And yet these and many other firms and institutions are falling over themselves to express solidarity with the ‘uprising,’ some going so far as to donate millions of dollars to Black Lives Matter, an outfit that lists among its objectives the abolition of the nuclear family.

Before my conservative friends go postal, think through this with me:

Over the past four years, every trick in the book has been used to end the ‘nightmare’ of national conservatism and populism. The methods deployed by the elite reflect its tendencies and preferences as a class. None of the methods they have exercised to bring down this president were unexpected. Remember: I even predicted all this craziness in politics — including impeachment — was going to happen as far back as 2017! Just think of recent happenings. Though few of us in the U.S. think about what’s happening similarly at the same time as in the U.S., it happened at the same time as Brexit in the U.K.

A majority of Britts voted to leave the EU and then had to spend three years fighting a political establishment that pulled all its vast resources to Brexit from happening. It failed. Does that parallel what’s happening here right now?

In America, the liberal establishment tried harder, failed harder, but learned more. From the minute Trump won the presidential election, Democrats, a significant group in our Intelligence Community, and their media allies set out to undo the result of the 2016 “send-home” of Hillary Clinton. The “Big” bullets in their gun were the ‘collusion’ probe and an impeachment push that was perhaps the single biggest insult ever to the intelligence of the American people. There were also countless smaller attempts to unseat Trump and destroy his followers. Remember: as he has so famously stated to American conservatives from the beginnings of the Mueller investigation: “They’re NOT coming after me. They’re coming after YOU.”

Trump survived it all. Now comes the new wave of rioters and mad anarchists, which many corporates and Democratic governors and mayors have actively encouraged, even as they continue to bar children from public parks and families from holding outdoor funerals, going to church and work, citing COVID-19 risks.

But wait: riots and statue-toppling — such things aren’t pleasant to establishment figures, are they? The logic becomes obvious when you see it as a form of class struggle. For all its fury, the storm of the riots ends. Their demands for ongoing racial fairness, equality, and attacks on law enforcement ends. There’s little in their cries about labor injustice, wages, and job security. Just demands for ‘representation’ or diversity (on corporate boards, in university curricula, etc). And, of course, the firing of those who say the wrong or awkward thing in the digital public square, in workplaces or in classrooms: you know, “Cancel Culture.”

The goal isn’t to repair economic injustices. You remember those protests and demands from the past: massive inequalities in wealth, health and job security. The goal today is 180 degrees opposite: to compromise, to defer, to smooth over, to hide these substantive disagreements, and instead have battles on methods of operations and social rule and racial changes.

Which social class most excels at politically correct treatment of others? That would be the professional-managerial class, the laptop class. Its children learn the communication and speech lingo for discussing ‘issues of race, gender, and sexuality’ from an early age. They’re expected to have mastered it by the time they take their entry-level jobs. It’s a skill that private schools are positively teaching already.

Working-class people, meanwhile, are most likely to struggle with this language. Even when they mean well they don’t always get it right, not because the rules constantly shift with the multiple and dramatic changes in race theory and LGBTQ desires and demands. By protecting the requirements to speak and think correctly — and raising the stakes for failures — the “new” liberal class has now created a new mechanism for staying at the top and keeping the peasants — American’s working-class — down: especially those who voted the wrong way in 2016.

So whatever you do, don’t call it a leftist revolution. With the flags, the protests, the kneeling, and the new language, it’s the OPPOSITE of war or revolution. The outcome is certainly unknown, but the class war is thriving and gaining strength every day.

Best Example of this “Counter-Revolution”

Former NFL star and activist Colin Kaepernick marked July Fourth by sharing a video of actor James Earl Jones reciting Frederick Douglass’s historic speech, “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July” with Kaepernick calling the holiday a “celebration of white supremacy.”

The video shows images of the Declaration of Independence, slaves, Klu Klux Klan members, lynchings and police brutality as Jones’s voice narrates in the background: “Fellow-citizens, pardon me, allow me to ask, why am I called upon to speak here today? What have I, or those I represent, to do with your national independence? Are the great principles of political freedom and of natural justice, embodied in that Declaration of Independence, extended to us?”

Kaepernick captioned the video with strong condemnation of racism and a call for “liberation for all” in the future.

“Black people have been dehumanized, brutalized, criminalized, and terrorized by America for centuries, and are expected to join your commemoration of ‘independence’, while you enslaved our ancestors,” he wrote. “We reject your celebration of white supremacy and look forward to liberation for all.”

His demonization of tens of millions of Americans happens while many citizens contemplate today’s Independence Day in the context of nationwide protests against police brutality and racism. Lawmakers have faced growing pressure in recent weeks to pass comprehensive police reform as well as other policies to protect Black Americans in the wake of the deaths of George Floyd and others who have been killed in police custody.

Many minority members of the nation look at Kaepernick as a “soldier for the cause” of fixing the nation: a Counter-revolution.

Summary

Here’s the hard part: being patient. How many times have you had to tell yourself the last few months “I wish I knew exactly what is going on!” If you’ve said or thought that, you’re one in about 200 million here and probably half that in Europe. To grasp an understanding of sorts that will probably answer your questions, consider this:

  • The political class in this nation evolved into the beast we find ourselves feeding so that we can survive in the 60s. No one stepped out and declared “Here’s what we’re going to do.” It was found to be simpler to quietly takeover Washington with policies and regulations to grab as much power as possible without making it obvious it was happening.
  • Serving in the U.S. government for two centuries had been an honorable vocation that paid less than did similar jobs in the private sector. But that was OK: you know, “the greater good.” But then with a booming economy that saw cost-of-living increases in the Potomac Valley skyrocket, D.C. political elitists began the process to even the scales for politicians personally. A process of increasing Congressional income and also the compensation for political bureaucrats began a slow increase that has peaked today. In doing so, we suddenly see an economic environment that not only has those in office paid equivalent to their private-sector counterparts, but are paid significantly more than their private counterparts. And why not? Congress determines not only their base pay but personal business and office expenses and has created a profitable retirement opportunity for all members of Congress. POWER!
  • They make the rules for everything in government. Wouldn’t you if in the same scenario could legally increase your total compensation do so? The U.S. Congress makes all the rules, all the laws, all the regulations that control every sector of living in the U.S. They under almost permanent liberal leadership have done just that year after year.
  • Campaign finance has not only increased the cost of getting elected, it created political action committees (PACS) that though strapped with regulations can legally raise tens of millions of dollars for candidates.  Super political action committees have less restraint on contributions and therefore take campaign donations to new heights.

None of the above has even been mentioned by the liberal leaders of this “counter-revolution.” They certainly do NOT want to upset the behemoth of the U.S. Government that has so successfully granted the elect in that group of elitists virtually unfettered power and legally unlimited collection of money.

Why would they support the destruction of that multi-billion-dollar piggy bank? The answer: THEY DON’T!

This entire travesty that dominates every newscast, every news story that centers on any part of this process is ancillary to their objective: destroy the populism and nationalism of Trump here, Brexit in the U.K., and dramatic civil unrest in Hong Kong to protect the power of the liberal left elitist that remains while doing all that’s necessary to re-implement what of it was torn away by Donald Trump.

Does that mean to not be concerned or to not be vocal about the evil we’re staring at? No. It simply states they don’t want to lose the gravy-train that has fed them so long just because Donald Trump messed it up!

They want it just the way it was before it was taken from them.

Play

Which America is OUR America?

If you were born in the 50s, that world looked nothing like the world in which you live today. Sure, we made it from the 50s through the JFK 60s, the hippies, LSD, and free love. In the 70’s we watched as the “cool” dudes and dudettes discovered cocaine gave everyone who partook a “new” high that wasn’t as crazy and didn’t blow your mind for taking one too many Acid Trips. American culture changed just like it always has throughout our history.

But through all of those changes, there was one constant, one rock, one eternal thing of substance: the core of the nation — its people, its citizens — always embraced true freedom and justice under the law. A lot of those teens didn’t believe it at the time because of the Vietnam War. But it was always there: a rock of stability they later learned was permanent for them.

There was craziness back then: we had the Black Panthers, The Weathermen, Bill Ayers, and Bernadette Dorne. We dealt with each and somehow never lost a sense of calmness, no matter what demonstrations and riots took place or what they looked like. Ayers bombed a New York police station.

1968 saw the height of the rebellion. There were constant demonstrations against the Vietnam War and the government that thrust us into it, knowing full well it was NOT a war to be won. Those Americans dreaded that evil feeling of helplessness as their draft numbers came up. Many saw that number as their death sentence. And many died. But the nation made it through it all, as did most of those young people.

With the turn of the century, things began to change — far more dramatically it seems today than we thought as the change took place. We discovered that the petulance in our children was NOT the same that we grew through. Our parents watched us and waited. But they knew we’d grow out of it.

Today, America’s youth are “different.” They don’t mature at the same age or in the same ways as we. These young Americans are angry and vicious, hiding a raw hunger for power under a brand new moralism. They don’t accept the status quo just because it’s the status quo. Yes, we hope they will eventually. But there’s no way to tell where they’re headed!

This side of 2000, a nation of high- tech teens revealed a new and different set of values and ways of thinking. They refuse to “pay the price” to get “there,” as did we. They want what they want, and they want it now. This gaggle of young Americans claims to deplore the capitalism that previous generations each grew to embrace, finding doing so was necessary to become anything in life — anything at all. But this generation deplores responsibility, the “normalcies” of their parents’ generation, and summarily reject commitment to anything longterm. They dodge marriage, buying homes, cars, and even spurn the responsibility of a leased place to live. They prefer to just “fly by the seat of their pants.” In a job interview today, the questions they ask most often early in that conversation are “How much does it pay, what are the benefits, how long is lunch, how much vacation do I get, and how long before I can take off for a few days?” Their own “Me-ism” devours them.

The Differences

In the late ’60s and ’70s, hundreds of bombs — REAL bombs of sorts — were detonated as various radical groups carried out their campaign against “Amerika.” According to The Los Angeles Times, “in California alone, 20 ­explosions a week rocked the state during the summer of 1970.’’ Our parents deplored the actions of these “radical young folks.” They couldn’t wait for those teenagers to grow up.

How many bombs will we see in the summer of 2020? Not so long ago, the radicalism of the 1960s seemed far behind us and a certain fixture in our rearview mirrors. Now it seems to have come roaring back.

In 1968, Leonard Bernstein entertained the Black Panthers for a fundraiser in his Park Avenue duplex. The Black Panthers were murderous thugs. But to a certain part of New York society, they were exciting moral fashion accessories. The Weathermen and Black Panthers have been reborn today as Antifa and Black Lives Matter (BLM), a well-funded outfit, whose founders are self-confessed “Marxists” bent on destroying America.

But now, in 2020, even more than in 1968, the leftist establishment is tripping over itself to embrace the radicals.

Does that mean we have to accept statues and other monuments to our past being defaced, toppled, destroyed? Does it mean that we have to stand by as police stations are incinerated and Bobby Seale’s call to “barbecue some pork” — i.e., murder some police — is resurrected on our city streets?

In 1968, it was mostly fancy people like Bernstein and Susan Sontag, who celebrated the Panthers and other radicals. There was still some resistance in the culture at large. Our parents were the products of a generation that fought to prevent any Americans from being forced to speak German or Japanese. They were disciplined and resolute. And they respected the prices for maintaining freedom and justice for all.

Today, the long march that commenced in the 1960s has proceeded wholesale through the schools, colleges, and the mainstream press. It is now marching through the corporate world. Businesses as disparate as Facebook and Brooks Brothers have issued abject letters of surrender to the rioters and looters who invaded America’s major cities.

We are meant to believe that the riots and anarchy we are witnessing across the country are legitimate in response to the death of George Floyd. But Floyd’s death was merely the pretext for anti-civilizational lawlessness.

In 1939, Evelyn Waugh noted that “the more elaborate the society, the more vulnerable it is to attack, and the more complete its collapse in case of defeat.” Waugh added: “At a time like the present, it is notably precarious. If it falls, we shall see not merely the dissolution of a few joint-stock corporations, but the spiritual and material achievements of our history.”

I think this is true. This is why, looking at the reprise of 1960s destructiveness on our streets, I am not inclined to say, “I told you so,” but rather: “We must do something about this. Now.”

Summary

Are we too late? Has the calendar flipped too fast too many times for us to take a pause, analyze, converse, and find consensus with this “today” generation: a world in which we can live with the shreds of our foundations on which THEY were raised while allowing them to flex their 21st-century muscles? Are there any parts of their mantra: socialism, lack of commitment to anything and anybody, hatred for capitalism and our free market — all of which are the fundamentals that made the world in which they were raised?

Most of us would never dream of embracing and acting-on the feelings and ideas on which they are acting today. We accepted far more of the morals and foundational elements of the generation of Americans that raised us than these youngsters are of ours. They seem sold-out to “throwing the baby out with the bathwater.” Everything goes!

The scariest thing to me as a father and grandfather is their lack of understanding of what is in the world that they think they want. They don’t understand the political structure of those teachers and professors who were born in the 60s’ “despise authority” era. Those hippies and free-love advocates wanted much of what these do. But at some point, they learned what they wanted could NOT be taken — it had to be developed. When they understood their task was not to turn the U.S. and its structure upside down, theirs’ was to teach this generation all that they had learned. But there is one significant addition to their education menu: HOW to do it.

That’s the scary part: many are confident they can do just that.

Is this our America…or is it theirs’?

Rep. Jerrold Nadler’s Judiciary Committee Hearing was Nothing but a Circus

The House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday held an oversight hearing focusing on Attorney General William Barr’s decisions as head of the Department of Justice. As part of the proceedings, the committee heard testimony from two DOJ officials: Aaron Zelinsky, a federal prosecutor at the US attorney’s office in Baltimore, and John Elias, a senior official in the department’s antitrust division.

Zelinsky worked on the special counsel Robert Mueller’s team during the FBI’s investigation into Russian interference in the US election, and he testified Wednesday that senior DOJ officials improperly interfered in the sentencing recommendation for the former longtime Republican strategist Roger Stone. Specifically, he told lawmakers that DOJ leaders sought a weaker sentence for Stone at Barr’s direction because they were “afraid of the president.”

Elias testified that Barr weaponized the antitrust division to harass marijuana companies because he doesn’t like the cannabis industry.

The committee also heard testimony from two former DOJ officials: former Attorney General Michael Mukasey and former Deputy Attorney General Donald Ayer. Mukasey was invited to testify by Republicans on the panel.

The witnesses who appeared on Wednesday were asked at one point why they chose to testify. Here’s how Elias and Zelinsky, both of whom are still serving at the Justice Department under Barr, responded:

Elias: “I looked at what was happening, which was unlike anything I had ever seen before, and it didn’t feel like a good faith calling of balls and strikes that I had been used to seeing. And I care very much about the antitrust laws, their evenhanded enforcement, protecting consumers, and also the institution of the antitrust division where I have spent my entire legal career. And when I saw these abuses, I thought that the public should get to know about them. So that’s why I stepped forward.”

Zelinsky: “Because I took an oath to do so.”

Things went downhill from there. Want an example? At one point, Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell excoriated Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan for not wearing a mask during the hearing:

“Let me just remind every member of this committee, and people that are walking into this room, that the guidelines have been set forth by the office of the attendee physician and the house speaker that members need to be wearing masks,” Mucarsel-Powell said. “And the chairman stated earlier, very clearly, that members will not be recognized if they are not wearing masks.”

She then addressed Jordan, saying it was “incredibly disrespectful that you have been sitting here next to the chairman without wearing a mask. You are putting other peoples’ lives and their families in danger.”

Jordan replied by saying that “the unmasking this committee should be concerned about is the unmasking that took place at the end of the Obama administration.”

Jordan was referring to “unmasking,” which is a routine and legal process that the US intelligence community engages in regularly. Republican lawmakers allege that the Obama administration improperly and illegally “unmasked” former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s name in intelligence reports monitoring the communications of then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Rep. Jamie Raskin, one of the most outspoken Democrats on the committee, asked former Deputy Attorney General Donald Ayer about Barr’s unfounded claim that foreign countries would meddle in the 2020 election by mass-producing counterfeit ballots.

Barr has “provided an echo for the president, who has voted himself by mail in New York and in Florida and whose party encourages its members to go out and vote by mail — but he’s echoed the president in saying there’s something wrong with voting by mail, and he’s alleged that voting by mail makes us vulnerable to foreign influence by counterfeit ballots,” Raskin said to Ayer. “Is that an appropriate role for the attorney general of the United States?”

Ayer said: “I think it’s not, and especially it’s not because it appears to be something that there’s absolutely no truth in at all. There are five states that do nothing but vote by mail, and every other state, I think virtually every other state, uses vote by mail somewhat substantially. So the idea that we’re going to throw cold water on the notion that we’re going to vote by mail is just disreputable. And it’s entirely inappropriate. It really isn’t his job anyway. If there were some law-enforcement function, there it might be. But basically he’s just echoing the president.”

Enough of these meaningless allegations tossed about and the screaming match in the House committee hearing room! A bunch of adults acting at best like children and, at worst, a bunch of circus clowns!

What Really Happened in that Hearing?

I’ll give you my two cents:

  • Two DOJ lifetime bureaucrats were enraged when AG Barr instructed their office to reduce the federal sentence handed down in the Roger Stone case. They both resigned over Barr’s order to do so.
  • The reduced sentence was not only a process that happens in at least 40% of federal cases when judges prepare to sentence defendants, their recommended sentence in the case far exceeded punishments meted out in every previous federal case with similar situations.
  • None of this mentions that the Attorney General is overall responsible for the actions of any attorneys that work in the DOJ under him. Obama’s AG Eric Holder frequently intervened in federal sentences as did his replacement, AG Loretta Lynch.
  • What was shocking to me (but should not have been) was that nobody who testified offered any firsthand evidence of any of the evidence of alleged wrongdoing! Why should that NOT surprise me? Because that has been the case in every allegation against President Trump in those impeachment hearings initiated in “Ukraine-Gate!” All-day it was this: “Mr. So-and-so told me that he heard Mr. Boo-Boo talking on the phone to Miss La-La, who said Attorney General Barr coughed when he was reading the recommended charges against Mr. Stone. And  because he coughed, that was a sign that President Trump was mad because Stone was his friend and had promised he’d take care of it all.”

That may sound like a juvenile—explanation for a House Judiciary Committee hearing. But, folks, it was that stupid! It was nothing but a show for the Hard Left in Congress and the nation. Why do that? CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS!

Summary

I’m confident you’d like to know what was the purpose of the charade perpetrated by Rep. Nadler. “The Penguin,” as he has been termed held this committee for no other reason than to lay a foundation. Put that one hearing in the context along with what is imminent in Washington.

Have you forgotten that former Attorney General Jeff Sessions appointed Federal Attorney Jim Huber of Utah to investigate alleged wrongdoing in the Hillary Clinton email server investigation? Even though Session was fired and replaced with Barr, Huber continued acting on his commission, worked (and still does) behind a curtain of secrecy, and has yet not stepped forward with his findings. Additionally, Attorney General Barr appointed Connecticut Federal Attorney John Durham to investigate any wrongdoing by those in the Obama Administration regarding all things that occurred during the Russian Collusion investigation. About six months into Durham’s investigation, the DOJ announced his investigation had shifted gears into a full-blown criminal investigation.

Here’s what’s about to happen:

  • Huber and Durham are very close to bringing their cases forward;
  • The Huber case will probably implicate those from the Hillary Clinton Campaign, the Clinton Foundation, and possibly others in wrongdoing regarding that private email server kept in her home. Just having it there was a constant violation of the handling of classified information. And each such violation was a felony;
  • The Durham case purportedly included multiple grand juries hearing the testimony of numerous subpoenaed witnesses. It is almost certain its recommendations will consist of indictments of numerous members of the Obama Department of Justice, the Obama FBI, and possibly even members of Obama’s White House leadership team;

Don’t for one moment think the Nadler House Judiciary Committee hearing and future such hearings ahead are NOT purposely to build layer upon layer of finger-pointing at Attorney General William Barr to destroy his credibility. Both House and Senate leadership teams know their only hope at escaping the vitriol of American voters just before the November election is to paint Barr as nothing more than a Trump sycophant acting on instructions from the President to attack, attack, and attack those who oppose him to deflect attention from HIS wrongdoing.

In other words, all of these upcoming House committee hearings are nothing more than smokescreens.

Should we expect anything less?

Play

“They”

Who are “They:” the players in this 2020 charade leading up to the ballot box in November? “They” must be a crowd full of folks with varied backgrounds, goals and objectives, anger, hatred, determination, and agendas. But who are “They?”

I’m not so vain as to think I know who all these players are. But isn’t it reasonable to think that there is a tremendous number of professional, organized, and structured goals and objectives somewhere in secret which dozens and maybe hundreds of pawns are heeding passed along from someone? There is too much order to what is being played out to simply be happenstance.

Let’s do this: let’s start at the bottom today and build a pyramid, first laying the bottom and largest layer of foundation stones and work our way to the top. We may not be able to get to who tops it, but I think we’ll be able to narrow the options significantly. Let’s get started.

The Stones

First, there must be a master plan. Let’s don’t complicate it; let’s just assume — and safely so — the objective of this operation is to remove Donald Trump from the presidency. No tools deemed necessary will NOT be made available. No processes are taboo in tackling that objective. It must pretty much be “anything goes.” And doesn’t that make much sense with all we’ve watched roll-out in the past four years? To make this work, the critical stones are broad bases on which the remainder of the process can safely set. Who’s first?

Congress

Nothing so difficult as removing a president could possibly be successful without significant numbers of members of Congress. After all, unseating a U.S. president must be through impeachment.

In this Congress, there has been a plethora of volunteers from even before the 2016 election, and even from the Republican Party. Who can forget the Trump hatred from the late Senator John McCain (R-AZ). “He would never participate in such a plan!” (NOTE: before we’re done, with this, you’ll be saying that quite often)

McCain has been fingered as the culprit who became the conduit for the piece of dirt used to begin this entire “removal” debacle. Former CIA Director John Brennan used McCain to pass along to the Comey FBI the unverified Steele Dossier that was used illegally to instigate the surveillance of Carter Page. McCain despised Trump.

Who else in Congress falls in line? RepresentativeS Adam Schiff, Maxine Waters, and at least a dozen other Democrats who were certainly part of the Hillary Clinton Dynasty that Trump’s election destroyed before it ever began. There is no doubt they all colluded, at least with each other, to coordinate the evil seed-sowing of disinformation throughout the Mueller Investigation. Even to this day Schiff maintains he had/has “uncontroverted evidence of Trump collusion with Russia to assist his victory over Clinton in 2016.”

Was this hatred sufficient to burn the fire of impeachment brightly enough to sink the Trump presidency? No, at least not so far. But it was certainly sufficient to keep the fires burning for three+ years. And in doing so, their certainty of Trump illegal activity became a plague that ran like diharrea through the American populace sowing seeds of doubt and hatred for the President.

And in the Senate, there has always been Chuck Schumer (D-NY). Schumer has a decades-old personal and business relationship with Donald Trump. And he never cared for the Queens billionaire. In addition, Schumer works in tandem with his House Master Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to corral all the Democrat senators necessary to fuel the fire of anti-Trumpism. And numerous senators stand in line in orderly fashion, confirming Schumer’s every legislative attack on this president.

Of course, Schumer NEVER instigates anything at all. Nancy tells Chuck what to do early every morning!

There are many more names that have proudly donned the banner of “Cornerstone” of the “Dump Trump” pyramid. They’re each easy to spot. They all look and sound like Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) Each time Adam Schiff breaks wind, Swalwell loudly proclaims, “Excuse Me!”

“Never-Trump” Bureaucrats

How many of these are befitting the classification with other  Cornerstones? Probably far too many for us to count. The multitude of lifetime professional D.C. bureaucrats that were holdovers from the previous administration are incalculable. But there certainly are hundreds. And it didn’t take much coaxing from the leaders of the Left to get them to fall in line with their leaders, push for a job in the Trump Administration to support the “Dump Trump” efforts.

Many showed their spots unwittingly through the Mueller Investigation that in testimonies and subpoenaed documents have been exposed. Chief among them are James Comey, Peter Strozk, Lisa Page, Rod Rosenstein, Andy McCabe, John Brennan, James Clapper, even the three generals and one admiral who last week in one concerted effort rebuffed President Trump. In doing so, each betrayed their oath to the fabric of military leadership which has always said, “If you cannot in good faith adhere to your superiors requests and leadership, your obligation is to resign your office and keep quiet.” Each betrayed their oath of service to the nation.

We could continue a laundry list of bureaucrats most of whose names you know. But you get the idea of the foundation of this pyramid. Let’s move on.

“Old” Government

Here’s a cornucopia full of well-know political names that certainly play a role. The list includes each and every leader in the Obama Administration: Comey (before), Mueller (before), Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, Susan Rice, Samantha Power, Joe Biden, each member of Obama’s cabinet, the leaders of each of the nation’s intelligence agencies with one exception: Admiral Mike Rogers of the National Security Agency. Rogers famously and secretly visited the president-elect in Trump Tower to reportedly reveal to Mr. Trump that his campaign offices there were being surveilled by the Obama FBI. The next day Trump moved his complete operation to his country club in New Jersey.

How far back does the “Old” government go in this foundation? It certainly included John Kerry, Al Gore, and Obama’s senior staff that served him in each of his two administrations.

We’ll stop here revealing the government “mafia” that primarily are the cornerstones of the “Dump Trump” pyramid. But you get the picture. Almost without exception, Obama’s entire government had obviously prepared to pass the mantle of the “new America” Obama thought he was called to usher in to Hillary Clinton. Trump’s fault? He had but one objective for his entire political career: to as President create a good and better world for every American. In doing so, he knew he would be required to tear down the Hillary ivory tower that Obama had constructed for her. And he has.

Democrat Party

Of course, the Democrat Party leadership has successfully created an environment in which they can with their minions using their “messengers” to disseminate their talking points to their followers. Under Obama, they were kept in line with blackmail messages from the White House: “If you don’t report the way we want you to report, covering what we say needs to be covered and attacking those we say are our enemies, your access to the seat of power in the U.S. will be cutoff.”

Every Democrat operative, elected official and every wannabe Democrat candidate has not dared to buck the Party. Though the party has its own leadership, there’s no real power there. Each take their instructions from Nancy Pelosi herself. Never doubt (at least until she’s gone) that she is the power broker of the Democrat Party.

The Messengers

The balance of the tower are layer upon layer of various media pundits: radio, television, internet news sites, internet liberal talk shows, broadcast and cable mainstream news programs and news reporters, major newspapers online and in print. And this group has worked the “plan” to perfection, finding ways to coordinate with each other and the “cornerstones” listed above, and in unified daily fashion drowned the American public, not with the truth, but with the political narrative of the day, given to them by the Messengers of the Democrat Party: The Leftist Media.

We will not waste your time talking about how evil are the mainstream media outlets and reporters, editors, publishers, and anchors. You know who they are. And they all dropped any ruse of existing credibility to go public with their Trump hatred, and they are all-in for getting rid of him. After all, they MUST have unfettered political access to be able to garner at least enough credibility to sell their wares to potential advertisers!

Summary

All that remains is the pyramid headstone. I would love to be able to beat my chest and give you “a” name or “the” names of those who comprise that topper of the pyramid. I could tell you who I think those folks are, but that would make this story today too simple and you’d probably forget about it before you eat dinner tonight. This entire story needs to resonate in your mind and heart through Election Day in November! YOU must figure who is at the top.

I WILL say this: my suspicions have been published here before. Remember: when the Obamas  bought that mansion just blocks from the White House and became the only outgoing presidential family in U.S. history to stay in D.C. after leaving office, I told you “There’s some sinister intent for making that move.”

You now know my thought about just one of those pyramid “toppers.”

Who else?

Here’s your assignment: YOU cast your eyes on the political (and financial and power) landscape. I’m a researcher, but I’m the first that will always say, “I don’t know it all and I almost always miss something.”

Here’s what I’d like for you to do: write who you think the top player or players in this are, send me their names and a paragraph with your reason for your choice. I will put a post together will all responses (including only first names) so we ALL can capture a unified picture that MAY give us real comfort of who is leading the way in this attempt to destroy President Trump. But, more importantly, what they all stand for.

Remember this: President Trump has warned us for sometime, “They’re not coming for me. They’re coming for YOU.”

Believe it or not, they are confident they will get him. I’ve told you for almost four years now they would impeach him, would continue to go after him, and if he wins in November, they’ll continue to attack him nonstop until he’s gone.

By the way: they want the destruction of ALL that YOU stand for too!

Send your names of those folks via email to: Dan@TruthNewsNet.org. Make it as simple as you want. Just drop a simple email to me.

Once again, thanks for being here and part of this family. I’ll see you all at 9:00 AM Central today on “TNN Live!”

Who’s in Charge: The Media and Who Else?

You know the answer to that: at least in part. Today’s Media has taken over, not just being the mouthpiece of the Left, they actually are now creating a narrative that fits the template published by the Democrat Party titled “Everything Necessary to Run Donald Trump From Washington.” They all march in step; they all are daily right on point, and, at least according to them and their minions, they never miss a beat or a single Leftist talking-point.

Isn’t it odd how often in morning news one can quickly scan the morning talk shows on MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, and NBC and see and hear the same anti-Trump/conservative talking points with the same phrases and catch-words? How is that even possible without coordination?

But they send the hypocrisy needle pegged far to the left with this: they all know that Americans have caught-on to their operations and coordination, but they do not even care! It’s as if some publisher or editor says, “By gosh, we don’t care what THEY think. We’re going to take him down, and we don’t care who knows about how or why we’re doing so! WE speak for the majority of Americans, so we are speaking the TRUTH!”

But, NOW the heavy artillery is arriving. A new “Ex-Sheriff” is mounting up to join in the fight. We all know him as former President Barack Obama.

Former President Barack Obama is back in the news, working overtime to make himself relevant by claiming partial credit for the Trump economic growth and prosperity. We should be alarmed because of what we know about the Obama presidency and its disregard for American traditions about elections and how one treats political opponents. There is no sense of protocol or qualms about abusing power or trampling the U.S. Constitution.

Presidential protocol once meant former Presidents showed a measure of deference and respect for current officeholders. Former President Jimmy Carter, in 2007, broke this precedent when he called George W. Bush’s presidency, the “worst in history.” Until 2007, Carter was the uncontested winner of the worst modern presidency in history. But then I digress. President Obama is obsessed with President Trump, and Obama is supported by his army of paid and unpaid protesters, as seen in Organizing for Action, a pro-Obama group that will not leave the president alone.

Given the corruption in the FBI and Department of Justice during the Obama years, the unprecedented use of the institutions of government against political opponents, and the never-ending Mueller investigation, it becomes more likely than not President Obama has something to hide. From the moment Donald J. Trump became a serious threat to the leftist agenda, he was targeted with Saul Alinsky’s evil strategies.

Deception, infiltration, and manipulations are at the core of the Alinsky guide for redistributing power. Just think about America, the frenetic opposition to the president and Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, 8, 11, and 13:

Rule 8. “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new…

Rule 11. “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog…

Rule 13. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.

President Trump and his administration have had the above tactics unleashed against them. The end goal is to keep him, so distracted he and his appointees will never have time to adjudicate any of the criminal behavior committed by the Obama Administration.

In the book by Dr. Carol M. Swain, Be the People: A Call to Reclaim America’s Faith and Promise (2011), pp. 13-15, she warned of what was then the precursor of fake news. In 2010, the Obama Pentagon was pushing for authorization to create an Office of Strategic Deception to gather and disseminate information to confuse America’s enemies. Given the compromised state of the leftist media, one can only wonder if this is behind the fake news we now get from once trusted news services.

If only we had an independent media committed to truth. Alas, we seem to have a media committed to partisan politics. In Saul Alinsky’s style, the goal is to isolate the president, keep the pressure on him, push all the negatives, and isolate him from friends and family. It is an evil strategy born from the imagination of the man who dared to give Satan a shout-out in the epigraph of Rules for Radicals:

 “Lest we forget at least an over the shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins – or which is which), the very first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom – Lucifer.”

Need we say more? We, the People, should not allow anarchists and former presidents to subvert the democratic process. We must “Be the People” who reclaim our nation.

Carol M. Swain is an award-winning political scientist and a James Madison Scholar at Princeton University.

Summary

All of this leads us at TruthNewsNetwork to wonder: exactly what have they been hiding for so long that they are so petrified of its discovery that they have unified and have spent (and are spending) hundreds of millions of dollars to prevent its revelation? I could speculate on an answer or two, but I will not do that. Just let it suffice to say there “IS” something or “ARE” some things that must be so egregious, so evil, and so unlawful that Democrats and others on the Left are willing to say and do anything to keep it hidden.

Their principal tool for doing so is Divisiveness and Misrepresentation. They must keep the attention of all conservatives on things other than what those Leftists are doing. Pelosi, Schumer, Obama, and Company have always used that as their chief tool: a diversion from the facts. And it has, in large part, been effective. The problem is that this time, President Trump broke loose long enough to not only say what he was going to do for the American people, but he also DID everything he said he was going to do for the American people. And that is something the Left in horror cannot handle. Why? Because there’s never been a Democrat in the White House who did that! And a Republican doing so has destroyed just about all of the credibility the Left had.

And they’re horrified.

Today on TNN Live at 9:00 AM Central, we are going to break down several of the things that have been happening behind the scenes that have dominated front page and television news: protests, riots, looting, shootings, CHOP, and police shootings. Yes, there are quite a few other things that Americans have been dealing with.

Did you see or hear all of the hoopla about the crowd at Saturday nights MAGA rally in Tulsa? The crowd was far more sparse than anybody expected. Have you all weekend long heard the drumbeats of Trump’s failure echoing across every Leftist media outlet? If you read their stories or listen to their reports, you might believe what they WANT you to believe: that Americans are done with Trump.

NO ONE has passed around information about the massive protests and blocking of entry at the last minute by Black Lives Matters and other protestors — so much so that the Secret Service shut down entry to prevent any of the nastiness getting inside. Join us live between 9:00 AM and 10:00 AM Central at www.TruthNewsNet.org, and you’ll hear us speak live with several people that were there who will describe exactly what happened.

That is just one example of how afraid the Left is of Donald Trump.

We’ll close with this: why did Obama at the last minute decide to get involved with former VP Joe Biden? Because Obama is afraid that the illegal activity from his administration is about to be public, followed by certain indictments. And if he can assist a Biden victory in November, Americans will never see or hear the truth of any of it! Biden will immediately shut down all the investigations.

There’s far more than we see. Let’s see just how much light of truth we can use to expose it all!

Insanity at NBC News

That probably doesn’t surprise too many of you: that anyone would say anything that can indicate any insanity at  NBC. Actually, there’s plenty there to go around! When we were preparing our story for this podcast, I found an interview with a news anchor and Chuck Todd — who is NBC’s political guru of sorts — and I was so taken aback listening to the two psychoanalyze not just President Trump, but every Republican member of Congress and every other Republican in the nation I stopped and was speechless. I thought, “I’ve got to break this idiocy down for all our TNN partners.

Because of my intense desire to show you personally just how jaded NBC News has become and just how consumed with their hatred for this president, I chose not to write the story. It’s much better and far more descriptive if I just do the audio podcast, play the interview, and stop their comments intermittently and give you MY analysis of their insanity while pointing out specifically just how they “bend” the truth to fit the narrative that is so pervasive at NBC News.

Please don’t be angry there’s no story today! Listen to the podcast. I think when you hear their mantra and my comments you’ll understand. And my hope is that we all will get to a place where anything we hear from those who have been permanently tagged as Leftist media hacks in their “reporting” are NOT given the benefit of the doubt when we hear them. Let the truth ring through their very words and expose their biases themselves.

We’ll elaborate on all this and more at 9:00 AM Central today on TNN Live. Don’t miss it!

What Should We Call It?

It’s taken over the nation in just three short months. It’s everywhere. It consumes each 24/7 news cycle, it dominates work and home atmospheres, and it’s pretty much all Americans speak about to each other. It so dominates our social and political cultures today, one would think it long ago would have been analyzed, examined for its sources and substances, and because of its detrimental results in the nation would have been eliminated. If not removed, we would have a well-devised plan in place and operation and be well on the way to its destruction.

But it’s still here. And it’s still dominating our lives. Every day we watch it consume all the oxygen in the air, choking out independence, freedom, entrepreneurship, peace, joy, what little tranquility we can find in our busy lives, and is stealing the souls of our children. It’s not religion. It’s not politics. It’s not war. It’s not even divisiveness or anger or hatred, or fear.

What is it?

It’s chaos. It’s here, it’s spreading, and it’s consuming every aspect of every American’s life. It’s dominating almost every waking hour of each of us. It even wants to take over our sleep. Its objective? The identical goal it has had since it first appeared on Earth: the destruction of all that’s good.

In the past few years, we’ve published stories about chaos. But we’ve not seen such chaos as today. Indeed, chaos has been robust and far-reaching in the past from time to time. But today, chaos has taken on a life of its own. And it’s being fed the fuel that will not only perpetuate its living with us but will enable it to grow ever more powerful and all-consuming. And as it always does, it is set on the destruction of all that oppose it.

The Message of Chaos

What’s its goal? Who owns it? Why is it growing so rapidly and consuming so wide? And the last and probably most important question is: who is its Master?

Let’s work backward in finding those answers. Who started it all?

That’s an easy one to answer for Christians: “God is not the author of confusion, but peace.” With that verse, it is simple to consider that whatever or whoever is opposite of God is whatever or whoever control confusion. That would be Satan or whatever you wish to use to call him.

The objection of chaos can never be for any positive purpose. It has always been divisive by its nature. It never calls on unity or peaceful communication or purposeful finding ways to dissolve the confusion it creates. It feeds on anger and spitefulness, hatred, and meism. It is controlled by those who choose to weaponize it for causes to divide and separate people who it targets. Those have found ways to take ownership of that process and to enhance the damage it creates. Chaos draws its power from the selfishness of human nature — the lust for power and control over others. Chaos, by its nature, exists to permanently destroy all that is good.

Chaos’ master is Evil. And its taskmasters are all those who use it as a weapon of destruction for their perceived enemies.

2020 U.S. Chaos

It began with the impeachment of Donald Trump. The chaos narrative that was built for that project was created on a bundle of lies, misinformation, lying, cheating, and the demonization of some really good and honest people.

The Second Chapter of “2020 Chaos” was an artificial pandemic that was introduced to the United States by a group of medical experts.  They demanded the undying respect and obedience of every American to introduce and implement not real methods to tackle a new disease — which COVID-19 is — but to intimidate Americans with the continuous use of the fear of the unknown to in three short months destroy the American economy while calling on the messages emanating from American elitists who were given credibility by those around them because “they are experts, and we MUST listen to the experts.”

In full disclosure, I know COVID-19 is a disastrous disease and never have and will never denigrate that fact. But it is a manageable disease that, even with all of the purposeful mystery around it, will NOT destroy the United States. And it certainly does NOT warrant the chaos that has resulted from the non-factual facts that have been shoved down the throats of the nation. What it accomplished was to put Americans’ immunity systems in a pause because of the universal lockdown forced on the people by these elitists that have prevented us from normal interactions, which are mandatory for our bodies to protect themselves against bacterial and viral foes that permeate our atmosphere 24/7.

The Third Chapter of “2020 Chaos” is sowed racial unrest that was seeded by the horrendous act of four Minneapolis police in the George Floyd killing. After that atrocity, activists from dozens of known and unknown groups have pulled out the dog whistles of chaos and ordered demonstration and protests that seemingly and purposely often morph into looting and rioting. Those have all erupted into mass devastation and even death at the hands of other humans.

The Messengers of 2020 Chaos

Need I say? There could be NO better trained, NO better armed, NO one angrier than the Mainstream Media. They’ve had years to practice and to perfect their purpose. In those years, they’ve bowed to new taskmasters in politics who promised them horror stories about their opponents, nonstop camera and satellite news coverage of their riots, 24/7 coverage that aggressively identifies while demonizing the “supposed” foes of the partners of the Mainstream Media.

The truth? It matters little to the Media Mob. They see their foes limping and even bleeding a bit. Just like rabid dogs that the bleeding has stoked their hunger to finish their foes, no matter the cost and no matter what that “finish” might be. All that is relevant to them is a victory at the cost of all who they determine are on “the other side.”

Never mind how much destruction results from this chaos. Forget about the cost for it all that can never be recovered. Forget about what of the fiber of this nation that gives us our identities will be devoured and lost forever. All that matters is “The Win.” No price is too much; no cost is too high, no wrong is too wrong, no pain hurts too much.

Don’t doubt about this revelation. Here, I’ll let someone else paint a more definitive picture:

“We can seek out media that is well-sourced and informative.” That MUST be a requirement that not only do we adopt ourselves, but we teach our children the same things. If we do not pour into their malleable minds the truths in our world, their basis of reason will be established by others with whom they interact: like liberal teachers in our schools and universities and on YouTube, Snap Chat and Twitter posts, and what they see and hear in video games.

Who can turn down the chaos? Only ME, and only YOU.

Advice? Turn down the media. Moderate your own chaos. Stop letting agendas of others to whom you watch, listen, and read determine your state of mind. Be an individual — a thoughtful, deliberate, and conscientious decision-maker. Do that, and you’ll see your chaos meter go way down quickly.

Hurry up and do that! You’re going to need to get as low as possible. Why? I don’t think the chaos around us is going to go away anytime soon.

When Lying Becomes Pathological

I’ve my entire life heard the term “pathological liar” used to describe the most despicable and dishonest humans on Earth. I never really understood its true meaning, until now. I fully understand not only its meaning but to whom it applies.

The above letter is self-explanatory. It illustrates exactly how deep is the dishonesty perpetrated by members of the Democrat-controlled media, leftist pollsters, and even television network and newspaper producers.

How could these dishonest polling numbers be considered pathological?

“Pathological Liar” defined: A pathological liar is an individual who chronically tells grandiose lies that may stretch or exceed the limits of believability. While most people lie or at least bend the truth occasionally, pathological liars do so habitually. Whether or not pathological lying should be considered a distinct psychological disorder is still debated within the medical and academic communities.

Does that definition describe the pathological actions of today’s Media?

Intentions

It has become abundantly clear that there without question is intent on the part of the Mainstream Media (MSM) to insert themselves in the 2020 election for the purpose of impacting election results. That in itself might an innocent objective, unless one remembers exactly how rabid the MSM went during the 2016 presidential election and its aftermath. The target of their angst: Russia, Russia, Russia!

It seems it was discovered that the Russians (and probably other foreign actors) had found ways to infiltrate the American media to further their own purposes for election results. Some claimed it was Russia to benefit Trump. Others swear it was Russia impacting election results in Hillary’s favor. Which if either was correct, it is clear there were attempts to use the American media to impact that election. And it is certain they will do the same thing in the run up to November 3, 2020.

Fairness

The American media have always played a role in national, state, and local elections. But their purpose was never to themselves impact election results, rather to facilitate the messaging of political candidates reaching the electorate with their political plans and ideas.

The Federal Communication Commission is responsible to guarantee all broadcast media outlets provide equal time for campaign ads for all candidates in each race. Additionally, the FCC policies political operations to assure Americans broadcast radio and television channels — which belong to the American people — are used and operating in lawful compliance. The FCC demands for all political advertising that every candidate receives the exact same advertising opportunities as all other candidates. That includes time provided and pricing for ads.

Leveling the political media landscape is a noble cause, IF the MSM just let it stop there. Unfortunately, they determined THEY should themselves play a major role in choosing candidates themselves! Heretofore they have implemented actions to do just that with no regards to their wrongfully impacting election results in biased ways. Who can forget this travesty that played out for the media during the 2016 election:

Notice all their responses to the election results. They had bought into their own pathological thinking that there was no way Donald Trump could defeat Hillary Clinton! The truth made NO difference in their mental and emotional responses during the campaign period. They were so convincing they convinced themselves through the non-stop lies Hillary was a sure winner. That is one of the issues with pathological lying: deceit and misrepresentation.

Don’t think for one moment that they did not learn from their 2016 mistakes. They’ve learned. They are STILL operating in the same mode. They’ve been hell-bent on doing and saying anything they can use to thwart a second Trump term. And they’re convinced once again they can do that.

They may be correct.

One thing has been confirmed. Until the last several years, conservatives and this President had a group of advocates that were totally committed to spurn political correctness and the “certain” election result outcomes that needed to be foretold and predetermined by the MSM. The conservative news advocate was FOX News. But the unbiased political narrative heretofore front and center and FOX is losing its luster. And with it goes impartiality in reporting. How so? Look at THIS story published on FOX Monday:

“A new national poll indicates that President Trump’s approval rating is dropping and that he trails Democratic challenger Joe Biden by double digits if November’s presidential election were held today.

According to a CNN survey released on Monday, the president’s approval rating stands at 38 percent, a dive of 7 percentage points from CNN’s previous poll, which was conducted in early May. And Trump’s disapproval rating jumped from 51 percent month ago to 57 percent now.

And the poll shows the former vice president and presumptive Democratic nominee topping the GOP incumbent in the White House by 14 points — 55 to 41 percent. That’s nearly triple the 5-point margin – 51-46 percent – Biden led by a month ago in CNN polling.

The president, who rarely misses an opportunity to blast a poll that he doesn’t like, took to Twitter soon after the survey’s release to charge that “CNN Polls are as Fake as their Reporting.”

There was more in the FOX News story. But the bundle of information necessary to show the legitimacy of ANY poll is glaringly missing. What is that?

Notice in the letter at the beginning of this story today: the entire second paragraph detailed the testing criteria, details of the polling process, and the sample detail.

The FOX story neglects to point out the most important details in ANY poll that gives it ANY legitimacy: two details. What are they? The breakdown of the sample voters by party affiliation, AND whether voters are registered voters are not, likely to vote, and even if they are registered voters at all!

This story by FOX apparently marks a dramatic change for FOX News. You may remember, after the 2018 midterms, FOX reached out and hired a different polling entity themselves — one that is dramatically partisan and is firmly left-leaning. That’s one issue. The second is the printing “partial” details of the CNN poll without including the undeniable proof that the CNN poll is undeniably non-representative of a realistic group of 2020 voters!

Why would any network do that — especially FOX News? Remember: CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS and all the major newspapers conduct reporting that way all the time. But, for FOX it’s a new and shameful departure from truth in reporting and unbiased news gathering.

Summary

Does this mean FOX is in the MSM tank? It’s looking more and more that might be true. If you pay attention to FOX News programming, their news operations during the day and early evenings have made a sharp left move. But their evening show hosts remain rock steady in that conservative mode. Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Shannon Bream continue to raise the conservative banner.  But does this Monday report on the CNN poll mark a concerted move by FOX away from their previous policy of making themselves part of political stories and polling operation rather than just to report on those.

We cannot be for sure which way that organization is moving. But what we can be certain is that their competitors don’t bother to hide their political bias at all. In fact, they are proud of their partisanship — something NO real journalists would ever fall prey to.

Keep your eyes peeled. And share this information with all those around you. Many of your family members and associates when reading that CNN poll (and especially seeing it discussed by FOX News) will begin to bow under the weight of discouragement and false information.

Isn’t that what the MSM have been doing for most of this century anyway? They haven’t changed their song or their message. If this really is a move by FOX News, it will be the most dramatic and substantive change in political news of this election.

By the way: if anyone in politics has the capability to tackle such destructive and pathological actions it’s President Donald Trump. HE will keep us in the know about this slide left by FOX. And he’ll be loud and nasty — just as nasty as those who continue to spread false information to impact the electorate.

I want Trump in my corner on this!
