Monday Irony

Democrats are worried President Trump won’t accept the results of the 2020 election.

Whimpers in the Whelpering

Whimpers in the Whelpering

Hope springs eternal or so the poets say

But nothing seems poetic in Washington today

Battle on the wind, stalemate all a’grind

The blame, The game as who can best opine

There’s whimpers in the whelpering

Oh, the little pups so fine

There is no hope, no helpering

For those who love to whine

A battle for security we asked for vows to win

Promises they make to keep until the tests begin

But one is standing firm it seems until the battle ends

They’re Trumped, They’re stumped, And soil their vast Depends

There’s whimpers in the whelpering

Oh, the little pups so fine

There is no hope, no helpering

For those who love to whine

Mitt came in a full on wail to prove he does not quail

We’ve never won, Its how its done, Republicans just bail

Not that they are weak, just only in the knees

They got a plan to make a stand if the press agrees

So now the people wait with dread anticipation

Ignored again, stuck again, a sad capitulation

The pattern can be broken if the truth be spoken

Find the spine, Hold the line, Courage can be woken

But, there’s whimpers in the whelpering

Oh, the little pups so fine

There is no hope, no helpering

For those who love to whine

Marching Straight Into A BuzzFeed

 

The latest journalistic debacle of BuzzFeed proportions has shown the spotlight again on a once revered institution devoid of any integrity. The Nation has in many ways become numb to it, even at times excepting this as the new normal. Despite this, the next station in the march of relativism should leave even the most morally callous appalled.

Still wiping the slathered froth flecked across their faces left from reporting a false BuzzFeed hit piece, the media has moved from one frenzy to another, with all the careful calculations of a bloody shark melee. Once again the rush to smear the President has left the media reporting a misleading, tainted source. Always there are repercussions to falsehoods, but with this, journalism turned propaganda has upped the ante.

It has the reputations and the safety of children in its ugly grasp and these lies of omission would in times past sicken even the most hardiest of smear technicians. An edited video has been circulated by news outlets purporting to show young, male, Catholic, students harassing on native American man at the recent March for Life. Not once was an effort made to corroborate, investigate, or validate the incident.

Now full unedited videos have surfaced which exonerates the boys and proves the dishonest pattern in modern media. By design or negligence, the damage to the children has already been accomplished. They and their families have to live under constant guard now because of the threats against their lives.

The patented wailed “He made me do it” response from the media will be pointed at the President. Pardon the interruption if Americans should recall the defining of integrity as doing the right thing in spite of adversity and isolation. When will true journalistic integrity please stand up?!
