As promised, we’re going to go “Light” on you today. You’re getting enough of the juicy stuff in Mainstream Media, and they’re telling us all the same stories over and over — and will continue that through Monday morning.
Just because we’re taking it easy does NOT mean there are no important things to consider. Remember this: the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing, as important as it is, is just ONE audacious, autocratic and political elitist occurrence in recent days that every American needs to pay close attention to. In the upcoming week, we will discuss many critical items that fall into that category. Each is of utmost importance for you and every other American to think through, question, and find answers that best suit YOUR perspective and ideals for our country. Remember this: no matter what anyone else thinks, YOUR perspective with the knowledge you garner from reading, watching, listening, and investigating is the important one. “If you don’t take care of yourself and your family members, it’s a pretty safe bet that no one else will!
While we’re contemplating contemporary events and thinking ahead, here’s a pretty solid thought offered up almost 100 years ago about much of what we are facing in America today with a learned perspective of how we should deal with it:
“If today you can take a thing like evolution and make it a crime to teach it in the public school, tomorrow you can make it a crime to teach it in the private schools, and the next year you can make it a crime to teach it to the hustings or in the church. At the next session, you may ban books and the newspapers. Soon you may set Catholic against Protestant and Protestant against Protestant, and try to foist your own religion upon the minds of men. If you can do one you can do the other. Ignorance and fanaticism are ever busy and needs feeding. Always it is feeding and gloating for more. Today it is the public school teachers, tomorrow the private. The next day the preachers and the lecturers, the magazines, the books, the newspapers. After a while, your honor, it is the setting of man against man and creed against creed until with flying banners and beating drums we are marching backward to the glorious ages of the sixteenth century when bigots lighted fagots to burn the men who dared to bring any intelligence and enlightenment and culture to the human mind.”
– Clarence S. Darrow, Speech at Scopes Trial, Dayton, Tenn., 13 July 1925, in The World’s Most Famous Court Trial 87 (1925)
The 2018 midterm elections are just around the corner. While contemplating your involvement in the upcoming election, consider this: those on the Left in the U.S. have been “called to order.” They are engaged — and much more than they were before the Brett Kavanaugh SCOTUS nomination. They certainly will campaign vigorously in these last few weeks. I’m not so certain the G.O.P. is going to be as aggressive, even though I feel the allegations discussed in last week’s hearing and those being investigated this week have and will galvanize conservatives. They certainly see the need to not expect that their favorite candidates can/will get elected without their personal votes.
Be vigilant…Be watchful…be more involved than ever. Your nation needs you!
I promised something light for you today. Here it is:
- I am posting here a picture of the “new” TNN TruthNewsNetwork limited edition large Yeti mug. It’s white with our logo and the caricature of my face engraved into the mug in silver.
I want you to have one. In fact, we began yesterday a two-week opportunity for several of you to get one of these. We don’t sell anything here, so these are NOT for sale. We just received a few of these several days ago. They are the 30-oz Yeti — the big one.
The two TNN partners who send via email the most number of email addresses of your friends who you think would want an opportunity to take advantage of what you see and hear daily at TNN will each receive one of these. They are exclusive and cannot be purchased anywhere at this time. (Besides that, here they’re free!)
Send your list of email address to me at dan@TruthNewsNet.org. DON’T BE AFRAID TO DO SO! Please understand how this will work:
- When we receive your email list, we will not only add them to our extensive list now, we will immediately send them an email introducing us and making certain they understand we do NOT sell anything, run ads, ever ask for anything, and certainly will NEVER give their email address to anyone at all;
- They will (as you) receive an email anytime a new story or podcast goes live here that contains a link that they can click to go to the new story or podcast immediately;
- They can by clicking the “unsubscribe link” in any one of those “notice” emails, they can opt-out at any time.
Why are we doing this and why do we want to add them to this group? There are tens of thousands who already are using TruthNewsNet.org as their “alternative” important news source to get many important notices of critical events in the U.S. and around the world. Most of those IF you get them, they come from a specific political perspective with a purpose other than simple news notification. We consider our responsibility to get these stories and this information as it becomes relative and important to as many Americans as we possibly can.
If you want a Yeti with the caricature of my mug, send those emails! Again, it’s dan@TruthNewsNet.org.
Very important: Tomorrow’s story will impact you and any person in your family or circle of friends who have been the victim of sexual abuse and/or domestic abuse at any time. It will also initiate a conversation about not just how rampant and horrible these are when they happen, but will discuss the importance of doing something about it. But we don’t stop there!
We will offer up a template for a credible and substantive way to not just address incidents of sexual and domestic abuse as they are discovered, but will include a roadmap of how we can ferret out the perpetrators with very little damage to the victims, AND we will discuss what structure must be put in place to create this scenario and who must take responsibility for its implementation and ongoing management.
See you tomorrow. Have a great day!
