Stop the presses!

The headline above is not my demand. It is my plea. Please, stop the presses, stop the propaganda, stop the lies. The mainstream news is giving me migraines. At the end of the day I know less than when I woke up in the morning.

My late uncle would tease that he only fibbed 10 percent of the time. He said people got upset because they couldn’t tell when that 10 percent was. The media, whose mandate is to tell the truth and nothing but the truth, are not even close to batting .900. I suspect we might be shocked by how often the media lies because of shoddy journalism or liberal ideology.

Billionaire media presidents and their millionaire anchors are worse than Hitler’s Nazi news. Joseph Goebbels was in charge of what the Nazi Party called the Reich Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda. That name alone told Germans that they were not being told the absolute truth but rather what the regime thought was important. They were honest about being dishonest.

The sexes, inseparable yet distinct

Since the appearance of the first modern humans 200,000 years ago, life has been built around the family unit of male and female. Feminists say there are very few differences between the sexes, yet we know this is categorically untrue. Men are on average 15 percent larger and 40 percent stronger than women.

Liberals pretend such differences do not exist, that men and women are biologically and psychologically the same. The resurrection of ignorance comes with the resurgence of women’s liberation on the heels of Donald Trump’s inauguration. The liberals have ignored the fact that women have never had it so good while men have never had it so bad.

Last week, embittered women protested their plight with the “A Day Without Women” strike. This and the entire movement are echoes from the women’s movement of the 1960s. A woman should have been elected president. If Hillary Clinton had a message other than “Trump is bad” or at least attempted to overcome her potted-plant persona, she would be president and the feminists would be happy as clams.

Donald Trump versus The Blob

 “I think you should send us the biggest transport plane you have, and take this thing to the Arctic or somewhere and drop it where it will never thaw.” – From the 1958 Hollywood movie, The Blob.

The United States of America, following the election of President Donald Trump, is effectively a superpower without a government. A civil war is being fought inside the Beltway between the established bureaucracy, some of them former President Barack Obama appointees, and the incoming cabinet and staffers who work for Trump.

Obama has the backing of the buttoned-down bureaucrats who rose through the ranks during the Cold War. They only see the world through a lens of East versus West and they are rebelling against the Trump presidency. Their hostility is encapsulated by four sentences the president used at a press conference last month:

Fake news and outright lies about the Russian threat

In the mid-19th century, American patriots coined the words, “Manifest Destiny.” The doctrine was widely held that American settlers would fulfill their and the nation’s destiny by expanding towards the Pacific Ocean.

Within a century, Manifest Destiny had become twisted. It was the mantra of the far-right neoconservatives who have shaped American policy since John F. Kennedy’s presidency. It had become a mandate from God. Essential in this mission, America would spread freedom and wipe tyranny from the globe, with God’s help if necessary.

In 2003, George W. Bush told the BBC that he was on a mission from God when he launched the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.

To date, no word on how God feels about George given the anarchy that is now rife in those two countries.

Immigration is Obama’s first battleground

“A nation that cannot control its borders is not a nation.” — Ronald Reagan

Former President Barack Obama is not finished with his deconstruction of the United States and the U.S. Constitution. Operating out of D.C., Obama has 30,000 minions who are spreading discontent throughout the country. He oversees his group, Organizing for Action, out of his mansion which is a stone’s throw from the corridors of Congress.

For the past eight years Obama has delivered endless excuses for Islamic extremism and expressed his disdain over America’s past. It seems apparent to me that Obama has political leanings which were taught to him by his Muslim father and stepfather.

After his first public statement since leaving office, The New York Post said this about the former president:

Progressives declare war on Trump, his loyalists and his vision for America

The shock of Hillary Clinton’s loss is only beginning to take hold on the left. The result is angry progressives who think the country has made a shocking and sudden right turn which imperils their goal of a Marxist society. That is something the progressives are not going to accept without a fight, which has already begun.

Democrats have painfully dragged out the appointment of every cabinet member put forward by Trump. Politeness and decorum have been abandoned within the oldest of the nation’s institutions, the U.S. senate.

A former U.S. attorney and U.S. senator for 20 years, Jeff Sessions was Trump’s nominee for attorney general. And while the legislative body encourages senators to treat their colleagues with civility, Senator Cory Booker (D-New Jersey), along with Georgia Representative John Lewis and Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Representative Cedric Richmond, impugned Sessions’ record on civil rights which they said disqualifies him from serving as attorney general.

Blood and oil, the disturbing truth about Saudi Arabia

The Keystone XL Pipeline was awakened from the dead with the stroke of President Donald Trump’s pen.

The new pipeline, proposed in 2008 by the Canadian oil company TransCanada, was planned to cover a distance of 1,200 miles stretching from Hardisty, Alberta, to the Gulf of Mexico. It is expected pump 830,000 barrels of oil per day through the United States.

America is currently importing 3 million barrels per day. Keystone could reduce America’s dependence on Saudi Arabia, which is currently exporting 1 million barrels per day to the U.S.

The State Department gave the project the go ahead. Even though petroleum prices are selling for half of their 2008 levels, there is optimism in the oil patch that Western Canada’s main economic engine will pull it out of recession. It will be a win-win situation. A stronger Canadian economy means more Canadian tourist dollars being spent in the United States and Canadians purchasing more goods made in America.
