CoronaLying

It’s regrettable that during this real national emergency during which we have been urged by our government to “pull together for the common good,” that there are those who continue their continuous efforts to divide the nation along political, racial, gender, and religious lines. But it continues.

I just watched New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who, in a news conference, actually acted contritely. The Governor seemed tired. He indeed, despite his historical continued vitriolic partisan attacks on the Trump Administration, said the following:

“We’re not Democrats. We’re not Republicans. We’re all Americans facing an American issue. It’s time for us to pull together for the common good of all Americans. It’s essential states and the federal government work together to fight this crisis.”

Isn’t it amazing how attitudes morph when the realities of life push to the front of the consciousness of politicians?

I’ve stated this on numerous occasions in writing about the vast and concerted efforts by many on the Left to blame everything wrong in America on Conservatives: “Will it take another war, another horrific earthquake, an attack against Americans by foreign enemies like 9/11 to rally Americans in unity once more?”

It looks like we are on the eve of such an occurrence.

When Andrew Cuomo in an act that seems almost his “final straw,” it appeared that what he was saying was, “I give up. Maybe the President’s right. Maybe I’m wrong. But for certain, New York needs the help of the Trump Administration, as hard as it is for me to admit it.”

Cuomo, in curbing his animus for Donald Trump, joins another Trump “governor enemy” in changing tunes about the President. California Governor Gavin Newsom has also paused his rancor at Mr. Trump in the wake of emergency assistance from the Trump Administration to help his state.

When the cruise ship with numerous coronavirus-infected passengers was held offshore at San Francisco, the governor reached out to Washington for help. Donald Trump personally intervened. Newsom had nothing but good to say about assistance offered to California by the President.

“We had a private conversation, but he said, ‘We’re gonna do the right thing’ and ‘You have my support, all of our support, logistically and otherwise,'” Newsom told reporters at a Monday news conference.

“He said everything I could have hoped for,” the governor asserted. “And we had a very long conversation and every single thing he said, they followed through on,” he noted.

Newsom said that he had received “consistent” support from Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, who is leading the administration’s response to the coronavirus outbreak.

Maybe, just maybe, politicians may be coming around to understanding and accepting that President Trump and his coronavirus tactical team know what they’re doing and that this administration has the welfare of the nation at heart. Maybe they can all just drop the partisan rhetoric and finger-pointing and get along for the common good of the country for a while.

I’m not so sure about the media, though. The attacks rife with lies just keep on coming.

A New York Times editorial board member has graduated from not understanding basic arithmetic to telling lies on social media about the White House’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The New York Times’s Mara Gay tweeted Monday afternoon, “Trump told governors this morning they are on their own: ‘Respirators, ventilators, all of the equipment — try getting it yourselves,’ Mr. Trump said to the governors during the conference call, a recording of which was shared with The New York Times.”

Her tweet, which has been shared by more than 5,000 social media users, is a lie of omission.

President Trump did not tell the governors they are on their own. He told them they can streamline their respective responses by taking specific actions at the state level. He also made sure to tell them they have the support of the White House.

The note that Gay shared with her more than 72,000 followers includes a link to the New York Times’scollection of live updates on the COVID-19 virus. That collection includes the relevant portion of Trump’s remarks to governors.

It reads: “Mr. Trump told a group of governors that they should not wait for the federal government to fill the growing demand for respirators needed to help people diagnosed with coronavirus.”

Trump told them specifically, “Respirators, ventilators, all of the equipment — try getting it yourselves.”

“We will be backing you, but try getting it yourselves,” he said, according to the New York Times. “Point of sales, much better, much more direct if you can get it yourself.”

This is nowhere near what Gay’s tweet suggested the president had said to the governors. There is no other way to characterize her tweet than to call it “fake news.” It is intentionally false information, disseminated broadly on social media with the explicit intent of misleading people. The only real difference between Gay’s tweet and the sort of stuff the Russians pumped onto social media during the 2016 presidential election is that Gay is an American citizen.

It’s not just the New York Times. Want another example?

  • On Feb. 28, Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank tweeted out, “Remember this moment: Trump, in South Carolina, just called the coronavirus a ‘hoax.’ ” The tweet has since been “liked” more than 162,000 times. Milbank subsequently wrote a column repeating the claim. But anyone watching Trump’s rally in the Palmetto State that day knows this wasn’t what Trump said. “Trump said that when he used the word ‘hoax,’ he was referring to Democrats finding fault with his administration’s response to coronavirus, not the virus itself,” noted FactCheck.org, which generally leans left.
  • The Washington Post accused GOP Sen. Tom Cotton of fanning “the embers of a coronavirus conspiracy theory that has been repeatedly debunked by experts,” namely that the Chinese may have engineered the virus in a lab. But as Cotton noted on Twitter, he was merely laying out one among several hypotheses about the virus’ origin, including that the virus may have originated from a well-known biological testing facility in the Wuhan region — a possibility that can’t be ruled out, even though Cotton admitted it was unlikely. The Washington Post appeared more determined to slap down GOP lawmakers for airing hypotheses than, you know, investigate the Beijing regime.
  • The New York Times quoted anonymous sources to say the White House was “muzzling” Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. This prompted Fauci to cry fake news. “I have never been muzzled, ever, and I have been doing this since the administration of Ronald Reagan. I am not being muzzled by this administration.”
  • On the heels of the president’s announcement of a sweeping travel ban from other countries and declaration of emergency, a Sunday CNN chyron (Headline on-screen graphic) read: “Trump on Coronavirus: From ‘Hoax’ to National Emergency.”The trouble is that Trump never called the coronavirus a “hoax” — this is an inaccurate and misleading distortion of what he has said, created and propagated by major media. And CNN won’t stop repeating it.
  • Politico Reported President Trump called Coronavirus a Liberal Conspiracy. Their reporters Nancy Cook and Matthew Choi also mislead readers with the headline, “Trump rallies his base to treat coronavirus as a ‘hoax.’” Their report further stated, “He sought to deflect blame at a time when many Americans sought leadership and scientific facts,” the story reads, ignoring the multiple press conferences Trump held with the Centers for Disease Control officials to explain new travel restrictions and other precautions.
  • New York Times called it ‘Trumpvirus.’ In a not so subtle headline, New York Times Columnist Gail Collins suggests who is to blame for the coronavirus. Hint: It’s not China, where the outbreak all started.
  • Washington Post A columnist said the Media isn’t doing enough to combat Trump on Virus information. Margaret Sullivan took the “blame Trump” storyline a step further when she charged the media with “helping him spread” his lies. Sullivan lamented Trump’s “disdain for scientists, medical experts, intelligence officials, journalists and others who deal in a fact-based reality.” Nevermind the White House’s coronavirus task force, and Vice President Mike Pence’s appointment of Ambassador Debbie Birx as the new response coordinator. Birx is a “physician, researcher, and former HIV/AIDS program chief at the Department of Defense and then at the CDC,” where she is respected for her “unparalleled leadership of the lifesaving global AIDS program first established by President Bush in 2003″ and under both the Obama and Trump administrations. (Sounds qualified to me)

We could continue with example after example how the Media continue to show their number one objective — of almost all the Mainstream Media — is to simply abandon journalistic integrity and any commitment to truth in reporting when anything regarding Mr. Trump’s handling of Coronavirus might be beneficial to the American people. Just go after him with guns blazing! We’re not going to do that. Rather than continue to throw rocks at television screens and grab the radio knob to change stations, let’s take a short break and come back with something inspiring to show and let you listen to. A doctor has found a method that is successful in killing the coronavirus with HEAT! You surely don’t want to miss this.

Watch and listen closely:

Can you say Wow!

Summary

Do you have a bunch of questions? You bet I do!

  • Why haven’t we heard of this? The Cold Arrest Procedure IS TRADEMARKED! It’s been tested successfully in actual use in 55 other countries.
  • Dr. Dimme seems to know what he is saying. I’ve heard for years that the reason influenza dies off almost always in late Spring is because the influenza virus cannot withstand the heat of Summer. Doesn’t that make sense to you?

Now, let me fill you with a yesterday-for-me conspiracy theory. I, through research, discovered this video and prepared it for this story. I was excited. I even shared it with several friends. However, last evening when I went to YouTube to download the video for re-broadcasting here, IT HAD BEEN REMOVED! On the blank screen where that link took a viewer, there was this written across the screen: “This video has been removed for violating our community guidelines.”

“Oh, Dan, you’re just a conspiracy theorist!” Ok. You try it yourself. Here’s the link. Click on it and see what YOU get: https://youtu.be/TfKmOeZbVV4

Put that in your peace pipe and smoke it for a while! Fortunately, I found it hidden at two other sources and downloaded both.

I’m not confident in what’s going on. But something’s going on. I’m doing my best to find out and will let you know if I do and what it is.

In the meantime, it might be a good idea for us all to spend a few hours in the sauna!

“Russia, Russia, Russia” Again!

Click To Listen

 

Intelligence officials have warned lawmakers that Russia is interfering in the 2020 election campaign to help President Trump get reelected, according to three officials familiar with the closed-door briefing.

The officials, who asked for anonymity to discuss sensitive intelligence, said Thursday that the briefing last week focused on Russia’s efforts to influence the 2020 election and sow discord in the American electorate. The intelligence warning was first reported by the New York Times and the Washington Post.

A senior administration official told the Associated Press that the news infuriated Trump, who complained that Democrats would use the information against him. Throughout his presidency, Trump has dismissed the intelligence community’s assessment of Russia’s 2016 election interference as a conspiracy to undermine his victory. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe the private meeting.

A day after the Feb. 13 briefing to the House committee, Trump berated the then-director of national intelligence, Joseph Maguire, and he announced this week that Richard Grenell, a Trump loyalist would replace Maguire.

Moscow denied any meddling. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Friday that the allegations are “paranoid reports that, unfortunately, there will be more and more of as we get closer to the elections [in the U.S.]. Of course, they have nothing to do with the truth.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tweeted, “American voters should decide American elections — not Vladimir Putin.” She added that all members of Congress “should condemn the President’s reported efforts to dismiss threats to the integrity of our democracy & to politicize our intel community.”

Wait: there’s more Russian U.S. election interference underway at the same time!

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Friday, Feb. 21, acknowledged that U.S. intelligence officials briefed him about Russian attempts to interfere in the Democratic primary race to help his campaign, reported the Washington Post.

According to the Post, President Donald Trump and congressional lawmakers have also been informed of the Russian attempts. Sanders, in a statement to the press, disavowed the alleged interference from Kremlin to help him win the 2020 election.

“I don’t care, frankly, who Putin wants to be president,” Sanders said. “My message to Putin is clear: Stay out of American elections, and as president, I will make sure that you do.”

“In 2016, Russia used internet propaganda to sow division in our country, and my understanding is that they are doing it again in 2020. Some of the ugly stuff on the Internet attributed to our campaign may well not be coming from real supporters,” he added.

Uh Oh! Bernie has made one fatal mistake: he has burst into a significant lead in the Democrat push to win the White House. And Bernie’s not the hand-picked Democrat the Democrat Party machine has chosen to assume the role of the “next” Barack Obama.

So what happens now that has happened? The Russians always get involved in whatever election is coming up!

What Happened?

The same thing that happens every four years! There is plenty of history to support the theory of Democrat Party leadership, pulling out the stops to use everything in their arsenal to beat whoever is their “chief election nemesis of the day.” They used it in 2016. They didn’t win the White House for Hillary, but their efforts resulted in a three-year, $40 million investigation of President Trump’s campaign because “sources said” Trump was colluding with Vladimir. He wasn’t. Trump won.

Are they at it again, or is Russia a real election-tampering threat?

Let’s break that down:

  • “Intelligence sources” briefed members of Intelligence committees on methods that Russia used to throw the 2016 election to Trump. That’s according to Democrats who were in the room when those briefings were held.
  • Democrat after Democrat and even some Republicans stated again and again, “There is uncontroverted proof that Russia attempted to impact the 2016 election.”
  • Interim Attorney General Rod Rosenstein informed Congress and the world after a DOJ investigation that “any outside election influence impacted not a single vote in 2016 by Russia or anyone else.”

Wait a minute! Everybody declared emphatically that the Russians elected Mr. Trump. And evidence they have proved the Russian meddling gave Trump the win.

What did they do? What did their efforts change? How many votes were impacted? How did Russians change those votes?

I’ll venture a guess: Russian influence in the 2016 election was two-fold: buying Facebook ads that ran pro-Trump online ads. They, too, bought Facebook anti-Hillary ads to denigrate the former Secretary of State. Those ads influenced 63 million voters to choose Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton.

IT DID NOT HAPPEN!

I have asked and asked for this: If there have been attempts by Russia or any other foreign country to impact the results of our elections directly, Americans should have those facts presented to us. That the intelligence agencies feel it is their job to deal with that information — if it ever happened secretlyIt’s disingenuous for them to “say” something’s right and not “prove” it’s right to Americans.

Until they present evidence proving otherwise, I don’t believe any election hacking has taken place.

How would that actually play out anyway? Remember this: there is no national U.S. network system in which federal elections are handled. Election voting is dealt with in total by the individual states. That means there are systems for each of the 50 states, one for Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, and several territories. Each is separate with no internet connections and no way to coordinate in any way. Voting methods and even types of voting machines vary from state to state. If Russia was successful at getting into a voting machine, it not being connected to all other machines would fail any election hacking attempt.

But there IS election coordination. Where does it originate and who is responsible? Who stands to gain if it is even possible to change outcomes of federal elections?

The “Rest of the Story”

Anytime in politics, you question sources and methods for controversies, you can find the answers fairly easily. Do so from the bottom up. “Hmmm. What does that mean?”

Assume for a moment Russia really wishes to impact U.S. elections. “If” they are doing so, they must have a purpose and also the desired result. The first thought of most Americans is, “They want Donald Trump to win because he will go easier on Russia than any other candidate.”

In 2016, almost every Democrat preached that Putin was helping Trump beat Hillary because he was in Putin’s pocket. Their conspiracy has been soundly debunked. No other American President has been tougher on Putin and Russia than has Trump — economically and politically. Think about it: Trump rebuilt the U.S. military putting it back in the #1 international spot. Putin certainly wouldn’t want that to happen. He and Russia would have been far better with Hillary at the helm. She would have continued Obama’s track of “defanging” our military.

For the 2020 election, would Putin build a platform under Bernie Sanders? That seems more likely than a platform for Trump for the same reasons as that 2016 picture we just looked at — not because Bernie would do Russia any good but because Trump who is so tough on Russia would be unable to do anything further to hurt Russia.

Conclusion: other than the same social media ad campaigns by Russia in 2016’s election, Russia’s not helping Bernie OR Donald in 2020!

Facts

With both conspiracy theories in the American marketplace at the same time, what is happening regarding election interference by Russia? Russia doesn’t care. They want confusion in the electorate that causes distrust in the U.S. election system. Think about it: if the Russians can cause Americans to no longer trust the fidelity of the election system, Americans will always question if who in the White House was truly elected.

“Trust in Leadership” is something Putin never experienced from the Russian people. He knows how tough it is to govern with that cloud of doubt always overhead. He licks his chops to think of the chaos in our Republic that Americans just thought we controlled. Anytime we think there’s cheating in a U.S. election, Russia wins.

The bottom-line in all this is we don’t know if any nation is after our election process other than for typical reasons that have existed for decades. Nor do we know who is doing it if it’s happening.

There’s only one unanswered question in this puzzle: Why then would these stories be leaked in 2016 and 2020 if there’s no real opportunity for anyone to hack our election system?

Answer: someone DOES stand to win, and win big, no matter who wins or who loses the 2020 presidential election: The U.S. Mainstream Media!

The “Chaos” Culprits

Who needs chaos in elections as much as the Media? Look at what happened before, during, and since the 2016 election of Donald Trump. The Lamestream Media have had a field day in the news. Hardly a day goes by in which they are not lambasting President Trump or someone in his administration. There is a “Trump story of the day.” And those stories are always negative.

What could be better for the Media than to have the ability to sow seeds of contempt to drive a wedge of political divisiveness between conservatives and liberals? That gives mediocre networks and newspapers fuel for stories that might return to them whatever glory in reporting they had before Obama came to D.C. THEY HAVE NO CREDIBILITY!

We previously revealed the private news website operated by a group of major liberal news journalists that can be accessed by only other journalists. They have coordinated news stories. An everyday leaked tidbit of Russia news each day locks-in readers, listeners, and viewers. With that comes ratings that consistently surpass any they had in the past.

What’s their objective? MONEY! But not only money — control of what people think about the U.S. political system. 

That may be the most critical result of all. Think about it: if the Media can convince a majority of the population something that is NOT true IS true, it makes it easier to sell to that public that something is evil. Those conspiracy thoughts grow. And with that growing audience comes the windfalls of larger audiences along with money, respect, and power over Americans.

“Information begats Power.”

Hitler knew that, Stalin knew that, Mussolini knew that, Mao knew that, Democrats KNOW that, and Vladimir Putin certainly KNOWS that.

I’ll end with this: do you know who in the United States (besides media moguls) knows that? Donald Trump. And he knows how to use it to his benefit.

Am I the only one to ever consider this scenario as “the” obvious explanation for why U.S. intelligence specialists would, in the same week, report to the President that Russia was tampering with the 2020 election for HIS benefit and then tell Bernie Sanders the Russians were tampering on HIS behalf?

Puzzle it through: it certainly makes 2+2=4, in this case, a plausible conclusion!

What Do These Things Mean?

Never before in my lifetime have I watched as so many unexplainable things happen in Washington. It has been uncanny in the last few years to watch the “other shoe” drop on people and circumstances time after time. “Unexplainable” is the applicable word for use in this discussion today.

Washington and politics go hand-in-hand. That alone initiates some things that Americans will never understand. Many of those never get explained — some for purposes of security, and some because someone does not want the public to know accompanying details. But since Donald Trump’s 2016 election, it seems there has been a flood of these mysterious events that occur at the most peculiar times.

“Impeach 45!” Even before the 2016 election, Democrats were already discussing impeaching Donald Trump. The “all-in” Mainstream Media reported about the cries for impeachment but never mentioned how crazy those cries were. Minutes after Trump’s oath of office, several national newspapers released stories discussing his “impending impeachment.”

The Mueller Investigation. Almost the entire Mueller Investigation was rife with strange and unusual elements. Its basis was bogus from the beginning: the investigation of alleged collusion between Russia and the Trump Campaign. Mueller used a team of 30 investigative attorneys that were almost entirely registered Democrats who had supported Hillary Clinton and other Democrat candidates in 2016. Thirty-months and $40 million later, no one was implicated by the Mueller team with any type of connection with the Russians.

A year or so into the Mueller probe, it quietly morphed into an investigation into President Trump’s obstruction of justice. Democrats in the House and Senate were frozen for the entire time, accomplishing little if anything in federal legislation.

To wrap up the probe, Mueller himself faced lawmakers to answer questions about the investigation. Mueller came away as little more than an “empty suit:” no proof of nor even a whiff of intent on the part of anyone that was part of the Trump campaign — or anyone else — to use Ukraine or Russia as a piggy bank or any other way. The Mueller Probe was a bomb.

Sealed Indictments. Not long after former Attorney General Jeff Sessions authorized (in a letter made public) federal prosecutor John Huber Utah to launch a broad investigation into “wrongdoing in the 2016 presidential campaign,” tens of thousands of sealed indictments began to show up in the public registries of eventually every federal court in the U.S. That they have each been sealed means that the public has no way of knowing who the indictments name, the charges against those charged, or any other details. For the purpose of comparison, prior to these indictments being implemented, the most such citations being issued in any year totaled 2300. From November 2017 through October of 2018, 60,000 had been released. It’s 2020, and we still do not know the nature of any of those indictments that are yet to be unsealed.

2019-2020 Impeachment. Those year dates are inserted in the heading because it looks like we may have to differentiate Trump’s impeachment by the years the impeachments were conducted! We’ve had one so far. The way it looks, Democrats have left the door open for another impeachment inquiry before the 2020 November election. They have even stated if he wins the election, investigations into his wrongdoing will continue. We’ve covered for you ad nauseum the entire first impeachment circus. So we don’t need to share those details today. We’ll almost certainly be back with “Trump Impeachment #2.”

Turnovers. In Trump’s first 30 months in office, it seemed he was constantly replacing senior members of his campaign team and those part of his cabinet and other areas in his administration. It often seemed there was no rhyme or reason to some of those replacement decisions. Of course, the Media made each one the “beginning of the end” for President Trump. More of those changes came at the hands of those leaving which immediately fueled the Media to jump on President Trump.

“Media Mania.” Never before in my lifetime has the American media been so obviously in the corner of a presidential candidate as in 2016. From even before Trump announced his run, the Media had Hillary Clinton already moving into the White House. Throughout the campaign and the election, their reporting in support of HRC was non-stop.

Never before in my lifetime has the American media been so obviously negative about a presidential candidate as in 2016. Someone looking in from somewhere else on Earth would have thought Donald Trump was a convicted baby-killer who was trafficking young children.

With the Mueller Investigation, Ukraine-Gate, and the subsequent impeachment of President Trump, at least 90% of Mainstream Media’s reporting was about Donald Trump and whatever was the “Trump scandal of the day.” The Senate acquitted Mr. Trump. But one would think the trial was still in full swing.

The Department of Justice. First, there was Attorney General Jeff Sessions that the media LOVED because he was feckless at best. Remember: he really put the President in a box by his personal recusal from the investigation of the Trump Campaign for Russian collusion. And he gave the President NO warning about recusal as a possibility before he was appointed AG. The President continuously blasted Sessions on Twitter.

It seemed for two years there was at least one tidbit of wrongdoing a day by the Obama DOJ in the news: wrongdoing by both Obama AG’s, former FBI Director James Comey, FBI agents, DOJ officials and even assistant FBI Directors.

After Sessions, Mr. Trump appointed William Barr as Attorney General. He too has been an everyday target for the Left. Nothing he does is correct and each of the things he does — regardless of circumstances for his doing so — is worthy of demands from Democrats for his resignation. But Mr. Barr is heavily involved in the latest DOJ “scandal.”

President Trump’s main source of information dissemination is through his Twitter account. POTUS is remarkably proficient at using it. February 10 the sentencing recommendation from DOJ prosecutors of convicted Trump confidant Roger Stone was made public. It was extremely harsh for the crimes he committed. President Trump went to Twitter and blasted the DOJ for the excessive sentence. Almost simultaneously it was released that Mr. Barr had instructed his underlings to consider revision of the sentence. The Media started screaming claims of coordination between the White House and the DOJ while numerous Democrats began crying for Mr. Barr’s head.

The AG immediately went to the media to explain:

In an exclusive interview, Attorney General Bill Barr told ABC News on Thursday that President Donald Trump “has never asked me to do anything in a criminal case” but should stop tweeting about the Justice Department because his tweets “make it impossible for me to do my job.”

Barr’s comments are a rare break with a president who the attorney general has aligned himself with and fiercely defended. But it also puts Barr in line with many of Trump’s supporters on Capitol Hill who say they support the president but wish he’d cut back on his tweets.

“Barr Must Resign.” More than 1,100 former officials of the U.S. Department of Justice (both Democrats and Republicans) have so far signed a letter demanding Attorney General William Barr resign his post because he represents “a grave threat to the administration of justice” in the United States. The open letter accuses Barr of “doing the President’s personal bidding” and in so doing, damaging the “Department of Justice’s reputation for integrity and the rule of law.” Barr has long been accused of seeing his job as defending Trump as a personal lawyer instead of impartially representing the government in all legal matters and is beyond politics. The “fuse” that resulted in the letter: Barr’s alleged abuse of power decision to reduce the amount of prison time a team of four DOJ prosecutors planned to seek for Trump friend Roger Stone, who was found guilty of seven criminal counts. Barr’s decision prompted the four DOJ lawyers who prosecuted Stone to quit the case.

“It is unheard of for the Department’s top leaders to overrule line prosecutors, who are following established policies, in order to give preferential treatment to a close associate of the President, as Attorney General Barr did in the Stone case,” said the letter. “Those actions, and the damage they have done to the Department of Justice’s reputation for integrity and the rule of law, require Mr. Barr to resign.” The letter also said, “because we have little expectation (that Barr will resign), it falls to the Department’s career officials to take appropriate action to uphold their oaths of office and defend nonpartisan, apolitical justice.” It also said the DOJ’s legal decisions “must be impartial and insulated from political influence.”

Summary

There are too many of these odd occurrences involving the Donald Trump presidency for this to just be “an accident” or “part of the political process.” It appears much if not all of these are coordinated and are for some specific desired result. What could that be?

I am unsure if anyone can answer that question accurately. And if there is someone who can, I doubt we’ll ever hear that answer. Why? Because if there IS a cause for all this rancor, it could only be part of some type of offense to remove not only Donald Trump from the White House but dismantle the “new” Department of Justice lead by Attorney General William Ball.

Would you like to speculate for a moment to examine what might be some of the reasons for these? Let’s do that:

  • There is a strong feeling by some Americans that Donald Trump is evil, has aspirations for sole power over our nation, and has ambitions to be the head of its government for longer than Constitutionally allowed;
  • There’s a deep-seated hatred among Democrats for President Trump because he interfered with the Liberal cause of moving the U.S. into Socialism by beating Hillary Clinton. She was their “anointed one” who was destined to continue that move away from Capitalism to Socialism.
  • “The World hates Donald Trump and, as a result, no longer looks up to the United States.” I know there are those who feel that way. But I find it difficult to accept that that alone would be sufficient purpose for the many and varied attacks on the President and others in his administration.
  • They disagree with his policies. Remember: through executive orders, he dismantled a huge amount of caustic regulations that stifled not only corporate growth but forced millions into unemployment lines. Trump’s tax cuts devastated the ambitions of the far left to drive the economics of the U.S. even further down the road of bigger government. That always interprets into massive social program expense increases in several ways: adding to existing programs, adding new programs, and by putting those unemployed folks back in the ranks of the unemployed drives welfare and other government assistance programs through the roof. That interprets directly into “government control” — the panacea of the Left.

It’s plausible to me that some of these may contribute to all of the hateful uncertainly that has been purposely initiated by the Democrat Party since Donald Trump’s November 2016 victory. But there are too many that are so obviously timed and coordinated just to be happening in innocence. If they are not all coordinated, I’ll eat a Nike tennis shoe!

But Why?

Here are my two cents: those on the Left are desperate to hide eight-years of wrongdoing — much of which was illegal.

That would explain all the sealed indictments. That would explain the Jeff Sessions authorizing in a letter released to the public of federal prosecutor Jim Huber of Utah to investigate all the wrongdoing during the 2016 election campaign. It would also explain their tremendous displeasure with Attorney General Barr authorizing Connecticut federal prosecutor John Durham to conduct an investigation into FBI wrongdoing (and ancillary matters that result from that original investigation). Durham’s first was “an investigation.” He then released to the public that it had turned into a “criminal investigation.” Durham has used so far at least one grand jury and probably one more.

There’s one big giveaway that leads me to these conclusions: Attorney General Barr did NOTHING unethical or wrong in instructing his department to revisit the sentencing recommendation of a convicted person to confirm the “penalty fits the crime.” That is common in almost EVERY federal criminal case. Secondly, those Mueller hold-over prosecutors were anti-Trump bureaucratic DOJ lawyers with an ax to grind. They spent $40 million U.S. tax dollars and almost three years in the worst FBI/DOJ investigation of my life that achieved virtually NO substantive results. They did not find one person guilty of anything that could have been considered “collusion with the Russians in the 2016 election.”

The bottom line is this: it is my opinion that some or many of those 1100 “former” officials of the DOJ who signed that letter asking for AG Barr to resign were in former Administrations. I am sure some of those may have a name on one of those many sealed indictments. Some may be implicated in Durham’s investigation. Just consider this: one does not have to be an attorney to understand that an Attorney General not only has the authority to ask his staff to find a revision of a harsh sentence to a person convicted of a non-violent crime, but it is also done all the time. It was done numerous times in the Obama Administration.

The “Old Guard” in Washington is afraid. They have been scratching the dirt frantically searching for some way to stop Donald Trump. Their desperation is at a fever pitch because the DOJ is getting close. With Barr and Trump gone, their mischief can remain buried!

That’s Washington, folks. That’s how the Deep State operates today and for the last 50 years: they protect their own.

I missed Part 3 of my impeachment forecast. Part 1 was immediately following Mr. Trump’s inauguration when I predicted he would be impeached before the 2020 election. Part 2 was that the House would impeach him but the Senate would acquit him: two-for-two. Part 3 was the resignation of Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House. That has not happened…YET. Two-for-three is not a bad day betting on horses!

There are too many smart people looking in on all this. There’s something being hidden; someone’s desperate to keep the covers from being pulled back.

By the way: where have John Brennan, James Comey, Susan Rice, Eric Holder, James Clapper, and others of that clan been hiding lately? Do you think there may be massive amounts of antacid being consumed there?

Do Leftist Journalists Coordinate Stories? If so, How?

I know you’ve wondered how it “just happens” that journalists — newspaper, magazine, television, radio, and internet — give the same stories on the same day from the same liberal perspective? Those journalists would like for Americans — especially those who classify themselves as “liberals, progressives, or Leftists” — to believe what they report that has been coordinated with others of similar ilk is because what they say is the truth. So why should they NOT say the same things?

It IS coordinated. And the truth has nothing to do with it. And they make NO attempts at all to disguise it. Have you not noticed that anytime anything politically controversial that comes from Donald Trump is in their reports, they often all use one word in their reports? Watch or listen to this:

Those are not controversial stories about Donald Trump or other conservatives, but this is an example of what we see and hear all the time: repeat, repeat, repeat, and repeat again to diminish the mental capabilities of their audience members.

Have you ever heard of “JournoList?” 

JournoList (sometimes referred to as the J-Listwas a private Google Groups forum — a private chat room — for discussing politics. The private members with whom they shared such tidbits were 400 “left-leaning” journalists, academics, and others. Ezra Klein created the online forum in February, 2007, while blogging at The American Prospect and shut it down on June 25, 2010, amid wider public exposure. Journalists later pointed out various off-color statements made by members of the list denigrating conservatives, as well as a seeming conspiracy to prop up Barack Obama. Others defended such comments as being taken out of context or simply a matter of private candor.

Politico outed the J-List in a story that blasted the super-secret group of liberal journalists who felt it necessary to not only share thoughts and ideas, but very obviously to coordinate not just stories, but actual verbiage used within those stories.

Is their an “heir to JournoList? It was followed by a similar web chat room called “Cabalist.” We only know about its creation, method of communication, and that it is a private chat entity. Those involved learned from J-List that Americans frowned upon a journalist-only chat-room used to secretly interface with each other and to keep hidden their conspiracy to “fix” the news for all Americans.

With no certainty and with the only an assumption, I assume this: If Cabalist is no longer in operation, there is some method for them to regularly access each others’ story sources and discuss who, what, and when stories would be released. It’s impossible that with regularity, we see political stories that say the same things often with the same words or phrases, and that are 100% negatively slanted toward the “political conservative of the day” and NOT believe leftist news journalists coordinate stories.

During the Impeachment trial, a Media Research Center study of broadcast evening news coverage of the opening arguments of both sides, found ABC, CBS, and NBC did not live up to the standard they demanded of Republicans. They gave Democrats double the airtime and showered their arguments with mostly praise, while expressing only criticism of the President’s legal team during the Impeachment trial of President Trump.

Between Wednesday, January 22, when Democratic House impeachment managers launched their opening arguments, and Tuesday, January 28, when the President’s defense team rested, evening newscast reporters and anchors made a total of 34 evaluative statements about the merits and effectiveness of both sides.

Democratic impeachment managers received a total of 21 evaluative statements from ABC, CBS, and NBC journalists. Of that total, 95 percent of those (20) touted their efforts and presentations, which means only one of their evaluative comments were negative. ABC’s World News Tonight had eight positive comments, CBS Evening News had five, and NBC Nightly News seven. NBC had the lone negative comment.

In stark contrast, every evaluative statement from reporters and anchors about the merits and effectiveness of Trump’s Defense Team were negative. Of the 13 total statements, ABC and CBS each had five with NBC pitching in with three.

We won’t give you the breakdown of network bias in coverage for each day of the trial, but let’s look at just Day One:

That day, the networks covered the Democratic managers for almost 25 minutes (24:57). That’s compared to the 11 minutes and 34 seconds they gave to President Trump’s Defense Team. The most wildly imbalanced was CBS Evening News, which gave seven minutes, 42 seconds for Democrats and skimped on Trump’s team with two minutes and 26 seconds.

ABC gave Democrats the most time at nine minutes, 25 seconds. Contrast that with the five minutes and 21 seconds they gave the Trump team. NBC allocated seven minutes, 50 seconds for Democrats, while giving three minutes, 47 seconds to the defense.

With the liberal media’s demand that Republicans be impartial in hearing the impeachment case, it was clearly more of a “do as I say, not as I do” suggestion.

Summary

It’s Monday, the day for both sides to make their closing arguments in the trial. Americans starting on Thursday began to hear the chorus of excuses given through the weekend in all Mainstream Media outlets and parroted by Democrats of every political group or organization: “Trump is not being acquitted. You must have a trial for there to be an acquittal. You cannot have a trial without witnesses. There were no witnesses, so Mr. Trump was NOT acquitted.”

That talking point was orchestrated and rolled out through the media to the people by House Speaker Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

I don’t yet know what the format will be for closing statements. But it’s a sure bet whichever of the House Managers gives a closing will NOT stray from that Pelosi-Schumer talking point. And it will be the talking point used by every Democrat member of the Congress or on the campaign trail through the 2020 election.

Every TruthNewsNetwork member knows my animus for today’s faux journalists. The reporting seen and heard at every level of media has devolved into being little more than a supermarket check-out gossip rag story excerpt. Few are the legitimate and honest news outlets that report the news without spin, the personal perspective of the journalist, and that does not talk down to their audience members demeaning the intelligence of those looking-in or listening.

Even if these 2020 news representatives do NOT coordinate their stories and narratives, they release their “news” in time cycles so that whichever comes second, third, and after that in story releases all use the first story as a template for the “negative Trump story-of-the-day.” There is no mathematical formula that supports the unity in story content we see and hear. It’s all coordinated, and all devised to fit the Leftist, Socialist anti-Trump narrative.

The reason for this tool of Leftists in the Media: “Create and share a falsehood that feeds the liberal perspective that fits whatever story is being disseminated and then repeat it, repeat it, repeat it again and again… Their default perspective of those who see or hear their reporting about conservatives in government and conservative ideas is that Trump supporters are ignorant, uneducated, boobs, that are easily tricked because of their inherent lack of perception and intelligence.

You don’t think they feel that way? Watch or listen:

Real Journalism has Died!

The “Inconvenient Truth” Isn’t an Al Gore Movie

Do you think that Democrats are petrified to believe that Donald Trump is looking more and more likely to be re-elected in 2020? Few will acknowledge that the 45th President’s support among Americans is NOT falling in the wake of the non-stop attacks mounted by Democrats and their bevy of Leftist supporters. Their attacks seem to encourage Americans who have tired of the “same old thing” in Washington: tax and spend, political corruption, ignoring federal laws, refusal to enforce immigration laws while repairing U.S. immigration, and tearing apart American healthcare. Add to that the massive loss of jobs of all kinds to foreign nations that drove millions even to quit looking for jobs in the U.S. Americans just had enough. Then came Donald Trump.

In the wake of the three-year plethora of amazing accomplishments on all fronts during Trump’s first term, one would think Americans — ALL Americans — would trumpet (pun intended) the American achievements in every sector and fall in line. Instead, the Left has just ramped up their nonstop attacks on the President. Tagging right along (if not leading the charge) is the Lame-Stream Media. They not only miss-report actual news, but manufacture story after story that demean the President personally and professionally. They report fake news as real news while ignoring every accomplishment achieved for Americans during Trump’s first term. They even use Americans on a personal level to fuel their attacks:

“Mark” tells a really sad story in this political ad. According to media reports, Mark is just one of the millions of Americans who, with the hope of change, voted for Donald Trump in 2016 who are appalled and ashamed of their 2016 votes. The only problem with this story is that “Mark” didn’t even vote in the 2016 election! BL News reported the story recently this way:

News reports revealed that a man who appears in an ad saying he regrets voting for Donald Trump did not even show up to vote in the 2016 presidential election. The controversial video was funded by Democratic Party supporters.

The controversial American Bridge 21st Century ad features Mark Graham, a man from Erie, Pennsylvania, who claims to have voted for Trump in 2016 and today regrets his decision.

“I voted for Donald Trump in 2016 because I thought he would make a change,” Graham said in the video urging Pennsylvanians not to support President Trump and even comparing voting for him to pouring “gasoline on a fire.”

However, Erie County elections office records indicate that Graham did not vote in the 2016 election.

What could be going on here? Was this an honest mistake that happened to a group of American patriots diligently trying to get the truth out that Pennsylvanians who voted for Trump are so disappointed they regret those votes? That doesn’t appear to be the reason for this ad and others like it.

American Bridge 21st Century, the entity that financed the ad, is considered a Super PAC. Political action committees (PACs) are organizations that pool contributions from donors to use those funds for campaigns for or against candidates, election initiatives, or legislation.

The American Bridge PAC, one of the significant liberal groups coordinating election fundraising, is funded mainly by Democratic donors and unions. Controversial billionaire speculator George Soros was the group’s largest donor for the 2012 and 2014 cycles, contributing $1 million in 2012 and more than $1 million in 2014, according to reports by the NGO Fact Check.

It’s one thing to point to the actual failures and wrongdoings of elected officials as reasons for voting for their removal or against their re-election. But it’s another thing to unethically seed the ground with falsehoods and fake ads to try to in underhanded fashion impact election results.

Wait a minute: isn’t that what the Mueller Investigation was about? Didn’t the Media implicate the Russians for subversively through social media ads and fake accounts to induce American voters to vote against Hillary and for Trump in 2016? I guess, in this case, it’s OK because it’s not a foreign government committing the fraud. Most would probably agree that both were incorrigible attacks on America’s election system. But only one was illegal.

The “Real” Story

Mark Graham’s story — at least as used in the context of that television ad — is not unique. One can put two and two together and conclude that if Mr. Soros and others of his political persuasion are willing to conflate facts and even outright lie, there are far more campaign tricks with which to fool Americans.

Democrats for generations have shouted from the mountaintops that they alone have been the supporters of minorities in America. They with the support of numerous African-American leaders have successfully led the majority of Blacks in the U.S. to their staunch support of the Democrat Party. Why? Because “conventional wisdom” proves that the GOP has always fought against the rights of African-Americans and even fought to keep Blacks suppressed in every way.

Indeed, there have always been Republicans who have discriminated against African-Americans.  But, it’s a fact that Republicans have pushed through legislation that gave the African-American community more freedom, more opportunity, more justice than have Democrats. Doing so created more chances to fulfill the promises made by our forefathers to all Americans in the Constitution.

In this brief audio/video report, one gets the truth of the Democrat Party’s lies about their Civil Rights gifts to African Americans:

It comes as no surprise to most that the tools of the Left are NOT legislative, social, or racial accomplishments for the poor or disenfranchised. In fact, Democrats fought against such freedoms for 100 years or longer. Their purpose is so obvious to some while so confusing to others that they have been successful in keeping members of the African-American community and other minorities from “seeing” the truth. Democrats are undoubtedly masterful communicators. But their achievements for minorities in America do not support their promises, nor their touted accomplishments.

Most Americans have known for decades the truth of the Democrat Party: their existence as a party depends solely on the maintenance of a nationwide voting majority. In the last twenty years or so, they watched as their voting majority began to slip. Why? Because Americans realized that Democrats had actually become the Taskmasters of minorities. How could these minority members allow this? Democrat Party leadership planted the seeds of deception that taught minorities that Democrats are the only Americans who care. Democrats supposedly were the only ones that would help them achieve the American Dream. That lie has been perpetrated in minority communities for more than half-a-century.

Under Donald Trump, Democrats have been exposed!

Summary

Here’s what’s happened: Donald Trump’s policies in total have given minorities massive life improvements in just his first three years. They are fleeing the Democrat Party in droves. Why? They are tired of empty promises, party policies implemented to perpetuate party power over its members, and legislative proposals that, if ever signed into law, would do nothing but further stifle opportunities for ALL Americans.

Democrats have been exposed.

It’s not just African-Americans that have seen the truth. Native Americans, Latino Americans, Asian Americans, and immigrants from all over the world who have emigrated to the U.S. SEE the benefits in their lives they never saw under Democrat presidents. They more than ever understand the promises given to them for decades by Dems have been empty promises devised to do nothing but keep their votes.

The video ad at the beginning of this story today proves just how desperate they are. The Democrat Party lies in shambles. They watch as its storied history fades into a distant past. Their power is dwindling, and that scares them the most. They know that without that power, they are doomed. They refuse to admit it, but to their horror, the Democrat Party is taking its last gasps.

The George Soros millions put into advertising and promotion along with the zillions of dollars from Bloomberg and Stern flooding this election cycle has done little to attract new Democrat voters. Polls show dramatic numbers of Democrats are leaving the party altogether.

The alternative for Democrat voters — Donald Trump in 2020 — leaves them speechless. Donald Trump and the Republican Party together form “The Inconvenient Truth”  of today’s political landscape. They are clamoring to overcome that “Truth.” But everyday ends for them saying, “What can we possibly do to prevent this from happening?”

There’s not much they CAN do: Americans have awakened.

The Beginning of The End

It’s over! President Trump is done: his presidency is in tatters, NATO nation leaders laugh at the American president, American voters have lost confidence in President Trump’s ability to lead, and the nation is doomed.

That’s the message that has been presented to Americans for month after month by the American Press. While doing so non-stop since the 2016 election, they giggle with glee for Trump’s non-existent failures! The irony of all this? Americans don’t agree with them!

Likely Articles of Impeachment Content

It is not likely the House Judiciary Committee will complete as soon as this week’s proposed Articles of Impeachment against President Trump. What will those probably include?

The articles of impeachment are likely to cover two major themes — abuse of office and obstruction. But they could be divvied up into multiple articles.

An impeachment article accusing Trump of abuse of office, or abuse of power, would focus on the findings of the Ukraine investigation and his efforts to persuade the Ukrainian government to investigate Democrats as the U.S. withheld military aid. That conduct is the focus of a House Intelligence Committee report that will be presented to the Judiciary panel for consideration in a Monday hearing.

Some lawmakers have suggested that Democrats could break out “bribery” as a separate article. It would likely center on Trump withholding the aid and also withholding a White House meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, in exchange for the political investigations.

Obstruction articles could be broken up into obstruction of Congress and obstruction of justice, or the two could be combined.

The administration’s repeated refusals to provide documents and testimony would serve as the basis for an article charging Trump with obstruction of Congress. If Democrats decide to draft an article on obstruction of justice, it could mention the findings of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

The Impeachment Process

If the House continues down the impeachment road, here is how it will most certainly look like:

  • The Judiciary Committee will present their finalized charges — “Articles” — to the full House for approval by a House vote. Each Article will be presented, debated, and determined by a House vote one at a time.
  • It is likely as few as three Articles to as many as five or six will be presented, considered by the House, and determined by votes whether to move forward.
  • At the completion of the House process, however many of those Articles are approved by the House will then be presented to the Senate for a trial.
  • The Senate could actually via a motion determine to not even take impeachment under consideration. That is unlikely to happen.
  • If/when the Senate initiates a trial, each “charge” (or Article) will be presented by an appointed prosecutor who will present evidence that will include documents and the testimony of witnesses. The President’s defense team will also counter with the cross examination of each prosecution witness presented as well as evidence. Then the defense team will also present witnesses and evidence that the prosecution will also cross examine and challenge as desired.
  • U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts will preside over the Senate trial. He will have total control of the process of the Senate trial according to Senate rules. When trial details are completed a vote will be taken. The President would if found guilty of any charges be removed from office.

Summary

How likely is it that President Trump will be removed from office? The answer to that question depends on who you ask. Most Americans when confronted with facts of Democrats’ allegations will shake their heads in disbelief this is actually happening. Sure, many Americans disagree with the President’s demeanor, his way of speaking, his brash, confrontational communication, and even his bragging. But most Americans question those things are impeachable offenses.

But I must be honest: this is only the third time in U.S. history this has happened. And the fact the Democrats are actually pushing down this road with the tremendous across-the-board Trump accomplishments that have and are significantly impacting Americans is scary. Common sense should dictate impeachment of a president might be appropriate for criminal activity by a President or unethical actions in office that include ”bribery, high crimes and misdemeanors.” But no one has presented any evidence of any of those necessary wrongdoings by this president.

Because those facts have not been sufficient to shut the door on impeachment is giving millions of Americans pause: this really could happen!

Fear is gripping the hearts of millions! This fear is of a government that is considering overturning the votes of 63 million Americans. Their doing while ignoring not just those voters but the best economic data in the nation in decades should make all Americans afraid. The fear is that Democrats just might pull this off.

The next two weeks will show the World exactly where the U.S. is in support of the Constitution, the American people, and the Rule of Law. If Democrats succeed in this, it will be the death-nail in history’s greatest country ever.

Democracy will die.

 

 

Media Problem: We Give Them Passes For Lies

Please do not think that our frequent mentioning of media corruption means we are conspiracy nuts. Why do we have so many media stories? The U.S. media has become the universal “go-to” source for information, especially information regarding the U.S. government. And with Donald Trump in the White House (who is regarded as probably the most controversial POTUS in at least a generation), there is plenty of Trump news on a daily basis.

Certainly that substantively should not be bad news at all. In fact, media sources should be delighted at the constant stream of Trump news. Why? It gives their viewers, listeners, and readers reason to spend more time, listen and watch more often and longer to news stories which interpret into ratings and circulation. Ratings and circulation turn into advertising dollars. And those evil media capitalists like gross revenue!

I strongly believe that those in the media purposely react as they do to the President’s verbal assaults on the lack of accuracy in much of their reporting to create stories about themselves to perpetuate the attention of their followers — for money! That certainly makes sense. With social media, the internet, satellite radio and television instant news programming, conventional news sources have suffered horrible financial losses over the last decade plus. A Trump White House has made them all more relevant and therefore more financially viable.

Enter “Fake News”

Media outlets rail frantically against the term assigned to them by President Trump: “Fake News.” While the President has made it abundantly clear again and again he is NOT speaking of all news from all news sources, it seems that all news sources stay on defense pointing their retaliation attacks at the President for the term.

Americans are not caught in that frenzied war of words between the media and POTUS. And the media understand that. Do you remember the Denzel Washington 1:00 minute video we presented several days ago when speaking to the media?

This Media functions totally on getting to print or on-air first, often at the expense of the truth. Who in good conscience can even claim news today is NOT biased, politically driven, and prospectively “in the tank” for specific purposes?

 

 

Media Lies: Which Story is Truthful?

                    Jim Acosta of CNN

Summary

Do you get the correlation of “Fake News” and Media disdain for the integrity of Americans? Do those in Media think Americans have no memory, no ability to search the internet? Do they think Americans don’t think about checking out a story on YouTube? Or do they just not care?

One thing is certain: today’s Mainstream Media cannot be trusted.

It’s a shame that Americans today that desire honesty, truthfulness, and facts in the news of the World can no longer trust the major media outlets for any of the above.

What’s ahead? Maybe, just maybe Americans have awakened in this horror thrust upon our nation with the Mueller Investigation, “Ukraine-Gate,” the faux House Impeachment Inquiry, and whatever is next in their incessant attacks on President Trump. Maybe now that the truth of the dishonesty of media (it’s odd to use that description of our media, isn’t it?) has demonstrably been exposed the nation will begin to question what is seen and heard and demand facts: not opinions or editorial comments or political narrative or “he said, she said.” Maybe Americans will begin to make the free market of ideas work just like the free market of trade and economics have for centuries. Maybe Americans will embrace the system of “supply and demand” in the news just as happens in the Service Industry, Retail, and international trade. In those, the products and services that are considered by consumers to be the fairest in price and delivery and substance are demanded before competitors’ similar products and services that are not as good or better when compared. That’s what Americans MUST demand in news.

Unless and until consumers send that type of message to today’s media of all kinds, they will continue to shovel the partisanship ideological “news” down our throats and tell us that if we do not accept what they give to us, we’re stupid.

I’ve had enough. Have you?

The Media Trump “Bombshell”

“The Walls are closing in,” “We’re at a tipping point,” and “It’s the beginning of the end!” These are the incessant cries from the Leftist Mainstream media in America. And these are not new warnings or new allegations. These began even before the day of President Trump’s inauguration.

So what is this all about? Corruption in the Media.

In our series entitled “Corruption U.S. Government Style,” we promised to give you six certain pieces of proof of existing corruption in the U.S. government. We gave you five, but told you we would give you the sixth “in a few days.” We did tell you the sixth would come from the formerly “unofficial” branch of the government that has been made official by the Democrat Party: the Mainstream Media. One might argue regarding the term “official.” I would agree there has been no formal appointment by the DNC of their media sycophants as part of their party, let alone, no Congressional appointment for them. But what cannot be disputed is the daily precise coordination between Democrats and the Media in messaging. It seems that every network and newspaper that are known for being “Anti-Trump” carry and broadcast the same canned headlines and stories as each other during the same Newsday. It is so common it would be disingenuous for anyone to argue that coordination does not happen. If you are one of those Americans who live in a world void of television news, or if you are one who believes the claims of independence in news and truthfulness of those who present it to us, let’s try to bring you back to Planet Earth!

TruthNewsNetwork could spend hours of your day showing and playing for you actual date and time-stamped examples of these same things happening not just during the Impeachment Inquiry, but since the 2016 election campaign. There exists volumes of examples that confirm what many formerly claimed was nothing more than a conspiracy. It’s real and…

American Mainstream News IS coordinated!

Who’s In Charge?

Naming a person, a group, or an organization as the “Boss” of these coordinated attacks on President Trump would be speculative. I’m reasonably confident I know where it originates, but I refuse to speculate. On this subject, I’ll be just like Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) regarding the whistleblower’s identity: “We must protect the guilty so lies can sacrifice the innocent!” (Of course my speculation there was not real and was emotional: please forgive me.)

It is much easier to determine who is NOT in charge. All of these Trump allegations target a sitting president that was elected by 63 million Americans. That process was conducted legally, fairly, and its results are indisputable. Those results were based not on emotion or opinion, but on the elements of presidential choice alone: an election. That process was implemented by a group of intelligent people who set out to do so with one objective in mind: to craft a government structured entirely to operate at the behest of Americans — ALL Americans. No American has ever been more important than their neighbors or other family members. And any variations of that one fundamental are attacks against the foundation blocks that constitute the United States of America. Those variations are nothing more than the opinions of people who are driven by “self-agendas.” And “Self-agendas” are NOT Constitutionally protected.

It doesn’t matter who is in charge and who — if anyone — is organizing a “messaging process, what matters is that the Media have let Americans down.

Propaganda

In third-world and totalitarian countries, news organizations controlled by the State have had their news justifiably labeled as “Propaganda.” Propaganda is the State’s version of the truth. But it certainly is not. In each such situation, the Media has become a combined messaging entity controlled by the latest messaging entity in each country. And, sadly, it’s true in the U.S. today just like in those third-world countries we referenced.

The Media have:

  • become a propaganda machine for the Left;
  • become a clear and ever-present bias purveyors against all things conservative;
  • A source that is pushing narratives that are ripping this country apart;
  • A reference to promote racism and bigotry where there is NO evidence of such behavior;
  • A source of misinformation and outright LIES without vetting sources or fact-checking stories.

In essence, they’ve stopped telling Americans the truth.

The Media Is Failing At Its Job

They’re supposed to be the 4th Estate, the “checks and balance” for the American people to war against the government growing too comfortable in their inevitable shift towards tyranny. It’s the media’s job to STOP that shift—or at least slow it down—and they’re not doing that.

Trump has called them the “enemy of the people,” and the fact that they’ve chosen sides and refused to do their actual job goes a long way in proving him to be 100% correct. And, unfortunately for them, Americans are FINALLY starting to notice.

Evidence

  • A recent Rasmussen poll indicates that the vast majority of American voters (including 69% of independents) are angrier at the media than they are at either President Donald Trump or his political opponents.
  • 61% of Americans expressed anger at the media (up from 53% last year) while voters’ anger at the press is also higher than their anger at either President Donald Trump (53%) or his political opponents (49%) and far more Republicans (83%) than Democrats (33%) say they’re angry at the media.
  • More than two-thirds (69%) of unaffiliated voters say they’re angry at the media.

Republicans being angry at the disproportionate bias makes sense. The treatment of the president and all things from the Right is horrendous. The most prominent news outlets in the country all lean to the Left. And the one company that is supposedly in Trump’s corner – Fox News – is only 47% favorable towards the President, while 53% of its reports are negative. So, if anything, Fox News is CLOSER to being fair and balanced towards the president.

It is fair to note that although FOX News is not harmful in their overall reporting of the President, that is NOT Pro-Trump.

So what is news supposed to read like, look like, and sound like?

Real News Defined

“News is information about current events. This may be provided through many different media: word of mouth, printing, postal systems, broadcasting, electronic communication, or through the testimony of observers and witnesses to events. Common topics for news reports include war, government, politics, education, health, the environment, economy, business, fashion, and entertainment, as well as athletic events, quirky, or unusual events. Government proclamations concerning royal ceremonies, laws, taxes, public health, and criminals have been dubbed news since ancient times. Humans exhibit a nearly universal desire to learn and share news, which they satisfy by talking to each other and sharing information. Technological and social developments, often driven by government communication and espionage networks, have increased the speed with which news can spread, as well as influenced its content.”

This definition originates from that bastion of news independence, journalistic integrity, truth, and honesty: Wikipedia. If one performs an internet search to find actual descriptions of News, its purposes, and its abuses, you’ll find that news has never been without bias and personal opinion.If anyone says to youthat “their” news IS 100% truthful, without prejudice, and without political or personal perspective, run away as fast as you can! Why is that? Because we are all people, all human, and all embodied with a brain with which to observe, consume, process and spew to others the consensus of what our minds have prepared from all those elements we have absorbed from outside sources woven into our minds.

We in no way are trying to excuse and or all those in the news media who practice untruthful production and dissemination of news regularly. Most of those abandoned the fundamentals of real journalism long ago. Journalism 101 teaches that regarding news, reporting should contain these elements: “Who,What, When, Where.” Stories passed along to news audiences are to include those elements and nothing more. But there is a problem with doing just that.

Humans investigate, compile evidence with which stories that chronicle those investigation findings are written, someone else may give those stories in a newspaper, television news report, radio news broadcast, or even from a stage. And in each such case, seldom if ever are those details given in a manner held to that “Who, What, When, and Where” template. Personal opinion and personal or business agendas most often color the “news” that is transmitted.

It’s that personal opinion that has become both the opiate and the thunderbolt for those who receive news. News organizations know that and have created an environment in which they can feed the hunger — a specific drug a consumer looks for — to anyone and everyone to keep them committed to that news source for that type of news about that type of subject.

Alas, Truth of stories given to the public is no longer mandatory. What IS compulsory is the inclusion of the personal opinion of the one reporting to not indoctrinate the viewer or listener, but to “persuade” that person toward a particular conclusion that is seldom based on fact.

We’ll close today’s story with a Summary note from actor Denzel Washington. He explains succinctly what has been and is still happening in the news industry. Without saying it, Denzel is portraying the evil of today‘s Mainstream Media and the horrors it is spewing on us all.

We’ve said this many times before but it bears repeating: if we choose to NOT awaken to the plethora of untruthful information flooding our lives and the lives of those around us, we deserve the results we receive from the absorption of it all. What are those results?

We form opinions based on information we digest no matter if true or not. We share those with others who then create their own ideas to share with others. To be  blunt: the Media are being allowed by Americans to paint a new picture of our World each day that has had the truth excised before its dissemination, replaced with opinion and specific narratives the reporting entity or individuals want us to consider as Truth.

Denzel expressed it best:

Google: Gone Rogue

There’s something up with social media giants Google, Facebook, and Twitter. You’ve heard about it continuously during the last two years: conservative posts are being blocked or taken down, “demeaning” or supposed “hate” speech posts are quarantined. Users’ accounts are even being blocked and sometimes deleted.

The conclusion: the Big Three are no longer just social media, news and information platforms — they are “Political Machines.” And they’re political leanings are obviously tilted to the left. And they’re using political bias to regulate what Americans see and read. In fact, in their doing so, “they” are choosing which political narratives and opinions are acceptable to the general public and which are not.

Yesterday we gave you examples of concrete proof that Democrats now have a choke-hold on their Media lapdogs. The Big Three network news divisions along with CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times and others are releasing news stories that are not just biased but are in-the-tank for Democrats already in office and for those who want to be. (If you haven’t already, take about twelve minutes and take a look/listen to yesterday’s story at https://truthnewsnet.org/fact-democrats-control-mainstream-media-content/)

Of the three — Google, Facebook, and Twitter — the media giant Google seems to be the one which is further Left politically and more intense in their editing of its users. But who is Google?

Google

Google was founded in 1998 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin while they were Ph.D. students at Stanford University in California. Together they own about 14 percent of its shares and control 56 percent of the stockholder voting power through supervoting stock. They incorporated Google as a privately held company on September 4, 1998. An initial public offering (IPO) took place on August 19, 2004, and Google moved to its headquarters in Mountain View, California, nicknamed the Googleplex. In August 2015, Google announced plans to reorganize its various interests as a conglomerate called Alphabet Inc. Google is Alphabet’s leading subsidiary and will continue to be the umbrella company for Alphabet’s Internet interests. Sundar Pichai was appointed CEO of Google, replacing Larry Page who became the CEO of Alphabet.

The company’s rapid growth since incorporation has triggered a chain of products, acquisitions, and partnerships beyond Google’s core search engine (Google Search). It offers services designed for work and productivity (Google Docs, Google Sheets, and Google Slides), email (Gmail/Inbox), scheduling and time management (Google Calendar), cloud storage (Google Drive), instant messaging and video chat (Google Allo, Duo, Hangouts), language translation (Google Translate), mapping and navigation (Google Maps, Waze, Google Earth, Street View), video sharing (YouTube), note-taking (Google Keep), and photo organizing and editing (Google Photos). The company leads the development of the Android mobile operating system, the Google Chrome web browser, and Chrome OS, a lightweight operating system based on the Chrome browser. Google has moved increasingly into hardware; from 2010 to 2015, it partnered with major electronics manufacturers in the production of its Nexus devices, and it released multiple hardware products in October 2016, including the Google Pixel smartphone, Google Home smart speaker, Google Wifi mesh wireless router, and Google Daydream virtual reality headset. Google has also experimented with becoming an Internet carrier (Google Fiber, Google Fi, and Google Station).

Here’s the most interesting and most important segment of today’s article: Google.com is the most visited website in the world. Why is that so important? Because Google has access to almost every electronic device on Earth that is connected to the internet.

Google In Politics

The driving force between any of these social giants is revenue. How do they each create $$? There are only two ways to do it: the sale of goods and products, and the sale of advertising. Google has a lock on the ability to rake in the dough because of their bevy of products, devices, (even their own cellphone line) and advertising. Google, as do all of these companies, do the best they can to parlay their goods and products into expansion and growth opportunities. In the media industry the statement that “he who is first is best” holds true as it does in all sectors of business. Google started the internet browser industry.

Founders Page and Brin were technology innovators who pounced on the importance to find ways to use the internet. In their quest to conceptualize, then create and build a product that could easily be used by a world market just awakening to the world of the Internet and its potentials, they needed to capture other technology gurus to join-in this project. Where else in the U.S. is there a larger and more qualified such group than in Silicon Valley? Answer: Nowhere. Google has captured the largest group of electronic techno-geeks not just in the U.S. but on Earth. And they’re good — really good at what they do.

But here lies the problem: almost all of those at Google 20-years later are born from the prevailing west-coast liberal philosophies that have overtaken America’s political system. This group of Americans — and not just from Silicon Valley — are the products of a generation of educators who promoted liberal political ideas to these young people.  As a result, this generation of computer hackers are almost all far-left. And here’s where the social media problems at Facebook, Google, Twitter, and even Amazon and Apple originate. What are they? Left-wing activists using their technology outlets to surreptitiously impact American politics. And they’re changing millions of Americans’ fundamental political ideals and sometimes even their votes!

Mark Zuckerberg’s testimony before Congress just gave us a small peek at how prevalent this is. Add Apple, Google, Twitter, Amazon and other techno giants into the mix and we could POSSIBLY be at the verge of a new generation of young Americans driven by a technology-created political ideology unto itself!

Do you know what’s scarier? It’s already been done!

What Has Happened?

Take Facebook and Google for example. Here’s a few minutes of a real expert — Dr. Robert Epstein, a Hard Left Professional — testifying before Congress about Facebook and Google’s significant and already in place operations to impact elections:

What better way than to use something already in your hands to secretly play with and directly impact the results of American elections! According to Dr. Epstein, it’s already been done! More astonishing and egregious is that no one (but probably Facebook and Google) knows how much of this was done, how many people were included in such attempts, and exactly how many people’s votes were impacted. But as Dr. Epstein testified to, MILLIONS of votes were changed.

Social Media Gone Amuck

(The following segment published by FOX News August 5, 2019)

“When President Trump won in 2016, Google executives went on stage right away and cried — literal tears streaming down their faces. They vowed that it would never happen again and they want to use all the power and resources they have to control the flow of information to the public and make sure that Trump loses in 2020,” Kevin Cernekee said on “Fox & Friends” Monday.

Cernekee said Google will “ramp up the censorship” as a method to ensure Trump loses the election — including the censoring of political advertisements, and the filtering of search results to promote its political agenda.
“They are very biased. There is bias at every level of the organization…and if you disagree with them even one iota, they will come after you, they’ll target you, they’ll make you an example.”— Kevin Cernekee, former Google engineer

“Google has a huge amount of information on every voter in the U.S.,” Cernekee explained. He claimed the company will use it to “build psychological profiles” in an attempt to change the minds of voters across the country.
The former Google worker said he noticed early on that the tech giant was mistreating its conservative employees, and he raised his concerns with human resources. In response, he received an official warning, which he took to the labor board. Cernekee was eventually fired in 2018.

Summary

Every American should be horrified. Think about this: the U.S. just came through 2.5 years and $30 million of the exhaustive Robert Mueller investigation into the alleged 2016 campaign violations of members of the Trump Campaign who purportedly worked with Russia to impact 2016 election results. These companies on the west coast are NOT comprised of Russians and are — on the most part — comprised of Americans. Yet Americans employed by American companies have been shown to have aggressively impacted the final vote results of the 2016 election — and not for the benefit of President Trump, but his opponent.

Oh, in case you forgot, here’s the former President’s response on election hacking claims by Candidate Trump during the 2016 election campaign:

“Because democracy, by definition, works by consent, not by force. I have never seen, in my lifetime or in modern political history, any presidential candidate trying to discredit the elections and the election process before votes have even taken place.

It’s unprecedented. It happens to be based on no facts; every expert, regardless of political party, regardless of ideology, conservative or liberal, who has ever examined these issues in a serious way, will tell you that instances of significant voter fraud are not to be found, that — keep in mind, elections are run by state and local officials, which means that there are places like Florida, for example, where you’ve got a Republican governor, whose Republican appointees are going to running and monitoring a whole bunch of these election sites.

The notion that somehow if Mr. Trump loses Florida, it’s because of those people that you have to watch out for, that is both irresponsible and, by the way, doesn’t really show the kind of leadership and toughness that you want out of a president.

If you start whining before the game’s even over, if whenever things are going badly for you and you lose, you start blaming somebody else, then you don’t have what it takes to be in this job because there are a lot of times when things don’t go our way or my way.

That’s OK, you fight through it, you work through it, you try to accomplish your goals. But the larger point I want to emphasize here is that there is no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even — you could even rig America’s elections, in part, because they are so decentralized and the numbers of votes involved.

There is no evidence that that has happened in the past or that there are instances in which that will happen this time. And so I’d invite Mr. Trump to stop whining and go try to make his case to get votes.”

Every American should be horrified. Election tampering DID happen in 2016. It certainly happened again in 2018. Yet no one in Washington is shouting about the violation of the most basic institution of the United States, not by foreign governments, but by U.S. companies!

Did President Obama know this was going on? It’s likely. We are still waiting for investigation results into the U.S. elements of government intervention in the 2016 election. But more and more testimony and simple addition are showing that the Obama White House at least “knew” about the shenanigans going on if not initiated them. We may never know for certain.

But what we DO know for certain is that 2020 and the federal elections in November of that year are rapidly approaching. All this knowledge and information screams for transparency of the existing investigations and what DOJ processes have been implemented to clean up the certain social media voter-changing attempts that will occur unless stopped.

It’s shameful that Americans are just now discovering how deep is this intrusion into our election process. It’s MORE shameful to discover that heretofore revered American companies seem to be joining forces with political entities to purposefully impact election results to favor certain candidates!

No wonder millions of Americans stay away from the polls and when asked why, they respond “My vote doesn’t mean anything.”

Fact: Democrats Control Mainstream Media Content

If you questioned our claims that the Mainstream Media are the communications arm of the Democrat Party and nothing more, STOP! It was made abundantly clear that Democrats DO control on the most part Mainstream Media. How so?

Here is the Tuesday, August 5, New York Times front page first edition: “TRUMP URGES UNITY VS. RACISM:”

Please note: this was the ORIGINAL headline that The Times published early Tuesday, August 5th. But it did NOT last long: a number of Democrats — several of which are 2020 presidential candidates — did not like the headline and lashed out at the paper on Twitter:

  • Democrat presidential candidate and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, “Hey, @nytimes — what happened to “The Truth Is Worth It?” Not the truth. Not worth it.”
  • Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker (NJ) wrote, “Lives literally depend on you doing better, NYT. Please do.”
  • Democrat presidential candidate and former El Paso Congressman Robert “Beto” O’Rourke commented, “Unbelievable.”
  • New York City Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), leader of The Squad, commented, “Let this front page serve as a reminder of how white supremacy is aided by – and often relies upon – the cowardice of mainstream institutions.”

And, of course, The Times complied. After the above Twitter assault, the NEW headline in the second edition said: “ASSAILING HATE BUT NOT GUNS.”

“Where’s the Beef?” That’s a great question. The “beef” is the “meat of the matter,” which is that Democrats control the Mainstream Media. TruthNewsNet began making that point at least two years ago. Many laughed at what was then just our “allegation.” But this snafu and immediate correction by The Times proves that the premiere Leftist media outlet in the U.S. — The New York Times — is afraid of the Democrat Party. That could only happen if there was some type of at least benign control or coordination of the New York paper by someone at the DNC.

This confirms the suspicions of many. But, more importantly, it reveals why so much of what Americans have seen and read in The New York Times, The Washington Post and many other print and internet sources for so long have seemed to not be news, but in many cases actual contrived and prepared talking points. Suspicions of Conservatives grew as they daily watched the Democrat Party mantra play out verbatim beginning on the East Coast in New York across the nation each day through newspapers in large and small cities throughout the U.S.

It has been orchestrated! And it certainly has been at least guided by someone or some group that has power — power over Mainstream Media print news outlets.

Not Just Newspapers

Ever wonder why the big three network news divisions plus CNN, MSNBC, and CNBC seem to parrot the New York Times and Washington Post assault on conservative politicians, conservative causes, and even everyday conservative voters? Their doing so actually confirms the tie between the Democrat Party and Mainstream Media.

We could play video clip after video clip, audio soundbyte after soundbyte, that prove this is NOT a conspiracy theory. For once, this one IS true. We won’t play a bunch, but how about the “parrot” (or coordinated) use of the words “Concerned” and “Propaganda” by “in your face” Democrat news hacks?

Still don’t believe someone coordinates these anti-conservative news stories? Let’s throw Rep. Adam Schiff’s analysis of the Mueller Memo into the picture to start an alliteration of the seldom-used term “Cherry Picked:”

Summary

It is clear that someone with at least the nation’s largest newspapers and cable television networks that lean left or that are simply in the tank for the Democrat Party are taking story content and even stories themselves from the Democrat National Committee and shoving them down the throats of their “intellectual” readers, watchers, and listeners. Need we say that NONE of these stories are slanted toward the right. They are very obviously all hard-left, anti-Conservative and anti-Trump. And these “stories” therefore cannot even be considered “news” at all. Guess what they are: FAKE NEWS!

Uh-Oh: now you’ll say we’ve gone off the deep end here. No. What we do is follow the stories and dig until we find facts. Honestly, these were pretty easy to ferret out and give to you. That in itself is pretty scary. The ease of identifying what these major news sources are doing shows just how callous, caustic, and so political ideology-driven these people are.

Think about it: for decades in America, newspapers were the friends of the common man. They were charged with informing the working people of the United States with the facts of all things important to citizens that were not readily available for consumption. There was no television as we know it today, radio and certainly no internet. Americans relied on impartial, unbiased newspaper reporters to find out what things that were happening were important to the people. Then daily or weekly put that information in some format and deliver it to Americans.

True journalism was once a well-respected vocation. And many true journalists were revered by millions. But what we have today are people who are nothing more than political pundits who each have a political perspective and ideology that is the foundation of their news reports. And, sadly, “truth in reporting” is no longer an intrinsic element of what we see and hear. Those political perspectives are all that matters.

I’ll close with this: often we encourage you to read, watch, and listen to today’s news outlets of your choice, but to never accept what you see and hear as “fact.” Make it your responsibility to fact-check them all! And “fact-check” does NOT mean go to Snopes.com or Politifact.com to get your proof. These both and most other fact-checking sources are themselves operated by political hacks and organizations that disseminate “facts” that are actually propaganda and nothing more.

I know: it’s really sad that we cannot do as our parents and grandparents did to get the news. They just went to the street in the morning, grabbed the paper and read the truth while drinking a cup of coffee. That was a long time ago — way before Al Gore invented the internet!

Let’s cloud this picture a little more. Tomorrow, TruthNewsNetwork will present sworn testimony and actual proof that the current cries for a government investigation of social media giants Facebook, Twitter, and Google are absolutely necessary. Why? Tomorrow the evidence we show  will prove that in the 2016 presidential election, vote tallies were actually fiddled with. Doing so actually resulted in vote changes in the millions! And you won’t believe who those vote changes were in favor of!
