sad, frightening…and too dangerous to ignore

Fox "News"

The Trump News Channel continues to do an excellent job at what it was designed to do. Almost 40% of citizens in our country listen to, watch and actually believe everything they see and hear from this propaganda machine.

It is sad. It is frightening. And it is far to dangerous to ignore.

birds of a feather

Too bad Trump is not as smart as he thinks he is.

It’s not fake news that dictators and totalitarian leaders throughout history have recognized the need to silence those who tell the truth. An honest media always poses the biggest threat to those who would misuse power.

The first step in controlling that media is to discredit it. I find it fascinating that we never heard of fake news until we got a fake leader. Coincidence? I think not.

Who are we to believe? The Liar-in-Chief is pathologically unable to tell the truth and changes his story every other day in spite of video evidence to the contrary. On the other side is the free press.

As for me, I am sticking with, and standing up for a free press. Their credibility has stood the test of time, and a free press is our best defense available against scoundrels, thieves and dictators like all those listed above. And right now, we need the best defense we can get.

Loose the Hounds!

I am only 70 years old, but I have to say that never, let me repeat that, NEVER have I seen any politician whine as much as the #BLOTUS. He is a spoiled, petulant brat that has never grown up.

He lies about the lies he lied to cover up the lies he lied about the lies. Then he whines about fake news and witch hunts.

All his ill-gotten wealth cannot buy enough lawyers to keep him out of the sights of all the investigators on his slimy trail. He is close to being treed by the hounds of justice.

lies of a wannabe king

Even George Orwell couldn’t have imagined this amount of doublespeak and overt lying. #BLOTUS is the undisputed “Lord of the Lies.” Bruce Riedel lets us know  once again that our Liar-in-Chief cannot be trusted.

And now  the Cheetos-colored, wannabe king is verbally attacking one of our biggest allies in the Middle East. Is he truly this stupid?
