“Selective” Outrage


Today marks the 3rd day I have been unable to last through even just 5 minutes of a network news broadcast — television OR radio. Why? One topic and one alone has continuously consumed every minute of broadcast time. The ONLY thing they bring to their audiences is this: Donald Trump is the most outrageous U.S. President in American history. Why? Got an hour or two…We won’t waste your time.

I have a few questions for those political geniuses and their handlers that are filling the airways, their Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter feeds with their respective drivel which the perpetually foam-at-the-mouth broadcasters share with a fawning audience. Never mind that venomous rhetoric they spew should — for the sake of honesty — contain some emotionless truths for Americans to digest. They each (like African hyenas circling a wounded gazelle lying in the throes of death) discard every shred of righteousness that MAY have long ago occupied even a tiny corner of their hearts to revel in the pending death of their next lunch. The gazelle  — which is the main course in the hyena’s dinner — is THIS President of the United States.

These hyenas all have names. And they all have public personas known to most Americans. Just as do African hyenas, this brood forgets about their very public histories and YouTube, throw caution to the wind along with any reason they once possessed, to circle, and howl, and wait for their prey to die.

Let’s name a few hyenas today:

  • James Comey This Republican Congress has proven incapable of fulfilling the Founders’ design that ‘Ambition must … counteract ambition,’” Comey quoted on Twitter Tuesday. “All who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats this fall. Policy differences don’t matter right now. History has its eyes on us.” This came from the fired FBI Director who has been documented to have lied under oath numerous times before Congress, lied numerous times on national television, aided many senior FBI officials in their joint attempts to usurp the authority of the FBI while subverting honesty and integrity in several criminal investigations. His tweeting this above illustrates just how narcissism can so easily strangle decency and integrity from any American who has allowed themselves to be consumed by the euphoria that accompanies political power.
  • John Brennan Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors.’ It was nothing short of treasonous,” Brennan, a frequent critic of Trump who served as CIA chief from 2013 through January 2017, tweeted during the event. “Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???”  To explain Mr. Brennan’s unfounded and outlandish allegations against the President, let’s simply remember what has happened on HIS watch in D.C. What was once the most pristine and certainly the #1 foreign intelligence agency on Earth, on Brennan’s watch became nothing more than the lapdogs of Political Elites. Brennan’s CIA did little more than run to fetch a ball those whom he wanted to please threw in their game of “fetch.” In his 4 years as CIA head, Brennan personally turned a blind eye to the atrocities that resulted in the slaughter of millions in the Middle East in Syria, Iraq, and across northern Africa. Brennan personally painted that famous Obama “red line” in Syria that if Assad crossed would (according to Brennan’s boss Obama) result in world-changing horror for the Syrian President. Bashar Assad not only crossed that line, as he crossed that line he slaughtered hundreds of thousands of Syrians using poison gas. Sounds like a great foreign intelligence agency head to me. How about you? Yet the fawning Mainstream Media (who themselves are the lapdogs of the Political Elites) breathlessly wait to reprint the nonsense which Brennan vomits on Twitter. Brennan accuses President Trump of “high crimes and misdemeanors.” He doesn’t even understand what that means! I’ll define it: allowing a brutal dictator to slaughter thousands of men, women, and children after YOU warn him not to, AND THEN YOU DO NOTHING are certainly “high crimes.” Forget about the misdemeanors! Oh, I forgot this: Brennan OWNS ISIS, too.
  • Barack Obama Our former President came out of the Socialist closet long enough to enlighten folks in South Africa the other day with his plan for a guaranteed minimum income. It’s not a new idea, and especially not for Socialists. I personally witnessed the results of an election in Switzerland a year ago while in Zurich. On the ballot was a bill to guarantee every Swiss citizen a minimum of $1200 per month from the government. Even in THAT Socialist nation, it was soundly defeated. Why? Swiss people realize that THE fundamental necessity for such a plan to work is really simple: someone MUST pay the bill! Of course, if that law was passed, paying that $1200 per month would be paid not by the Swiss Government, but BY THE SWISS PEOPLE! Obama and others of his ilk just don’t get it: Americans too reject European-style government control of everything and instead continue to trust (and demand) government “by, of, and for the people.” In Johannesburg, South Africa, Obama in a speech to about 14,000 took aim at President Trump, saying “Unfortunately, too much of politics today seems to reject the very concept of objective truth. People just make stuff up. … We see the utter loss of shame among political leaders where they’re caught in a lie and they just double down.” Using the term “Objective Truth,” the former President forgot that to say a statement is “objectively true” means that it is “true for people of all cultures, times, etc., even if they do not know it or recognize it to be true.” He is NOT known for being objectively truthful, to say the least. The Twitter World went nuts at his comments about “Objective Truth,” remembering (and reminding us of): If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your insurance plan you can keep your insurance plan. The typical family will see their insurance premium reduced by a minimum of $2500 a year.” Don’t forget about the Benghazi YouTube video and the slow-playing of IRS approvals of Tea Party groups’ non-profit status.
  • Chuck Schumer is demanding Republicans convene a public hearing on any deal made between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin at their recent summit in Helsinki. “Our Republican colleagues need to join us in demanding testimony from the president’s national security team that was in Helsinki and we need to do that immediately … to assess what President Trump might have committed to President Putin in secret,” Schumer said Tuesday on the Senate floor. “You can’t assume anything — but that as weak as he was in public before President Putin, he was even worse in private,” Schumer added of Trump. “Why else did he not want anyone else in the room?”  “You can’t assume anything…..” to the Senate Minority Leader must mean no one but he can assume anything. Schumer shares with other liberals the basic assumption that they know more than the President and Middle Americans about what’s best for the American people. And they cannot stand anything this President accomplishes — including a peaceful relationship with America’s greatest enemy: Russia. Question for Mr. Schumer and his cronies: isn’t it better to have a reasonably close relationship with enemy government leaders — one in which face-to-face conversations about good and bad issues occur regularly in which decisions are made based on facts rather than political correctness — than sitting in offices 6000 miles apart and relying on media to communicate issues?


I could post video after video showing how the Coastal Potomac Political Elitist hyenas are circling their prey today. But doing so would be a waste of real Americans’ time. Let it suffice to say in closing that as often happens, these hyenas have underestimated the wounded gazelle they hope to devour when it dies.  Donald Trump is only a figurative gazelle. And he’s not dying. He may be wounded, but as he has shown in his past — recent and long ago past — when he’s wounded, he’s never “down for the count.” “Wounded” does NOT mean dead. Historically, he always gets up and quickly gets back to what he does best: initiate change for the good.

Middle Americans understand that. Not only do those Americans hope and pray for the gazelle, they look on with the expectation of what’s ahead when the wounded goes back to battle. “To battle” is where Mr. Trump is headed….again. The hyenas always howl: that’s what hyenas do. But they almost always are forced to eat the leftovers from the real warrior’s meals.

Wonder what’s on the Trump menu tomorrow?


At TNN we are contemplating beginning a Monday thru Friday “LIVE” internet talk show, complete live telephone call-in listener interaction. Requests for such a show keep growing. “If” we go in that direction, it will most likely be a two-hour live AND recorded for later downloading like the current podcast. Choosing a time for live airing is critical. We do NOT want to go head-up with any of the loved national conservative live radio shows like “Rush Limbaugh” and/or “Sean Hannity.” Those two are pillars of conservative talk radio, are the best in the business, and their shows are iconic. We are thinking about a two-hour window from 9:00 AM Central to 11:00 AM Monday through Friday.

Here’s what we need from you: PLEASE email me at dan@dnewman.org or at dan@truthnewsnet.org (our new web address email) and 1) tell us your opinion about even doing a live internet show; 2) what you think about the plans for it to be two-hours in length; 3) how you feel about the 9-11 AM Central time slot.

PLEASE ask any questions, make any suggestions, and be brutally honest with your opinions. Believe me, we do NOT want to make these “possible” changes without your support. The 30-50 thousand daily readers/listeners we have are the reason we even do what we do today. Preparing the research, planning, and production of this everyday is energy consuming as it is. But we feel it is well worth our efforts.

We put this NOTE on today’s Podcast version of this post and expect to hear from quite a few of you. Please pass this to friends who know about us, ask them to join you in emailing us at dan@dnewman.org or dan@truthnewsnet.org ASAP so we can begin preparations to make changes or continue to move forward as we are today. THIS IS YOUR SITE! Your wishes and desires drive this ship. Let us know how you feel. We’ll repost this the next few days for those who may not be looking or listening in today. Early next week we’ll share the results of viewer/listener comments and how we go from here.

You may never know just how I appreciate your support and participation in what we do. My personal commitment to you is to always seek and find the truth on every issue that is important to YOU and to give you those truths without spin — both good and bad. Every American needs to be afforded that from media members who are supposed to be servants of the American public with information, not partisan spin.

We’ll talk soon. I cannot wait to read your emails!
