I never cease to be amazed, amused, and disturbed by how many people continue to believe whatever the MSM and Internet Activist present without verification or validation. If they see it in print or hear it on the news, they believe it and all subsequent backtracking, retractions, apologies mean nothing to them. The damage has been done and they repeat it like mindless robots and those who listen to them believe it and perpetuate the spin. And you wonder why the President would call the MSM “Fake News.?” Surely you cannot seriously consider them a viable source of news?
CNN among the most liberal media outlets has once again stepped on itself in their “bombshell” revelation about Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Russian collusion. They have subsequently “walked back” their fabrication and false charge but it is so buried in the minutia of their anti-Trump rants it was likely missed by most and ignored by the rest.
CNN reported that Jeff Sessions committed a gross sin and his omission was further evidence of clear collusion with the Russians in getting Trump elected. What was his omission? He failed to disclose that he had meetings with the Russian ambassador when he was a senator. The Justice Department explained that he omitted those meetings because the FBI told him not to list any meetings he has in conjunction with his duties as a United States Senator. CNN, cried, “NO WAY!” They argued, “A legal expert who regularly assists officials in filling out the form disagrees with the Justice Department’s explanation, suggesting that Session should have disclosed those meetings.” It was wall to wall coverage and they were almost breathless in their assumption that they had found a “smoking gun” and clear evidence of collusion. They asserted this would be highly problematic for the Trump administration and it would be impossible to explain away. Amazingly, they don’t care about the members of Robert Mueller’s team, the Hillary tribe, and Democrats who fail to disclose or openly break the law.
Oops! They have now acknowledged that FBI emails CONFIRM that Sessions’ explanation was accurate! They sheepishly acknowledged that “a newly released document shows that the FBI told an aide to Attorney General Sessions that he was not required to disclose foreign contacts that occurred in the course of carrying out his government duties when he was a Senator.” IMAGINE THAT! Sessions told the truth and CNN perpetuated a spin that made him appear guilty of collusion. If they knew this in advance they were knowingly spreading a lie and if they did not they are guilty of running with a story before corroboration and verification. Either qualifies them as FAKE NEWS!
This is one of many incidences in which the various MSM and Congressional activist advance news that is unsubstantiated and solely for the purposes of tainting the image and character of their enemy. In the past year, the Democrats have advanced much FAKE NEWS that is potentially damaging to various Republicans, Constitutionalist, and Conservatives without shame. Even after their story or the story they are repeating has been debunked and disqualified they continue to allude to it as though it were still possibly factual. Their purpose can only be to taint the minds of as many “ill-informed” voters as possible and like Harry Reid said regarding his false story about Mitt Romney, “Well, he didn’t get elected, did he?” TRUTH is not part of the equation to them, defeating their opponents is and in advancing their liberal often socialist agenda and seeking to “fundamentally transform” America.
I would suggest that we might take to heart the maxim of Edgar Allen Poe, “Believe nothing you hear and only one half that you see.” NO, I am not that cynical because I am a Christian and I want to trust. However, in today’s political climate, we must be skeptical of the spin and rhetoric of politicians and activist groups. Mr. Poe is reported to have clarified that statement by saying, “You are young yet, my friend, but the time will arrive when you will learn to judge for yourself of what is going on in the world, without trusting the gossip of others.” That is a most powerful statement and one we could, at least in part, adopt into our thought processes.
In my years of Christians service and ministry, I have long said, “I do not want to be an echo, I want to be a voice.” I do not want to simply repeat what I have heard others say, unless of course, what I repeat are the word of our Lord Jesus Christ. In ministry, teaching, business, relationships, and politics I have attempted to inspire people to THINK FOR THEMSELVES and not rely solely on the ideas of others. If the America voter were to suddenly become a thinking body of people, many if not most of those in Washington, D.C. would be shown the highway. We would uncover their fabrications, lies, deceptions, and expose them as the frauds that many of them are. We would discover they do not consider themselves subject to WE THE PEOPLE but believe that we should are subject to them. The MSM and other activist groups are nothing more than pawns of a diabolical ideological agenda to destroy the America of our Founding. They seek to eliminate our borders and strip us of our national sovereignty making us part of the New World Order that is subject to the designs of the diabolical. I resist that and will continue to encourage everyone to examine, test, vet, investigate, and THINK for yourselves. NEVER, give up your God-given right and ability to use cognitive reason.
God bless you and God bless America! Join me in the fight for Faith, Family, and Freedom. The prize is America and the reward is Freedom!
