Inoculated

 

We could wait for the dust to settle, but the frenzy never seems to lessen. The tension has ratcheted far beyond hyper to that screeching ripping sound right before everything snaps. Hour upon hour the American people are treated to an incessant volley of insults, hyperbole, and unhinged smears against this Nation, it’s people, and it’s President.

Should this be allowed? Can they attack the American people in this way? Yes, of course! The First Amendment’s strength is it’s ability to protect the speech you don’t want to hear.

While the media is protected by the First Amendment, the media is not the embodiment of the First Amendment. The Rights of Free Speech and Freedom of the Press are not enshrined in and exclusive to the mainstream media. Despite what liberal and conservative pundits alike opine, it is not an infringement of Free Speech to challenge the validity of the old line media as trustworthy news sources.

The President has done what most Republicans have failed to do and that is to push back against the dishonest media. Most Republicans have spent their entire political career cowering before the media and, like breath of fresh air, this President has come into office and done what every politician promises to do, fight for the people. A grim sense of satisfaction has swept the nation as they watch a bloodied tyrant flailing foolishly at a studied pugilist, who is giving the old despot his due.

President Trump has exposed for the Nation what he has known all along. The old line media is a failing commodity that has not placed a quality product on the market for some time. Were it not for forced viewing in airports and, sadly, validation by the White House, the old line media would barely make a ratings blip.

This is the irony. For all his bluster, Trump still validates these failed media institutions by allowing them a seat in the White House Press Corps. The negative attitudes, insults, and disdain of the American people are emboldened by the revered status a place in the Executive press room affords.

The First Amendment does not grant the media immunity from the Free Market. Free Speech does not or should not keep you impervious to the non-violent repercussions of said Free Speech. Yet, the established wisdom of today would have us believe that the old guard media are icons which have been inoculated against the demands of the consumer and innovation, therefore, cannot be changed. Will Free Speech really die with the demise of these rotting corpse, which are the media dinosaurs?

I think not. New and fresh voices are sounding an honest and clear call, a clarion that deserves recognition. Is it time for the White House to embrace this changing of the guard fully?

If the President truly believes that the dinosaur media is a failed, aging, outdated product that does not serve the people, then at the very least he must allow for new and fresh competition within the Press Corps. Can the President kick a news group out of the Press room? Why Not?!

Let the Free Market, the consumer, decide who their news source is. The White House should stop validating those news institutions who constantly disparage and attack the very fabric of our Nation, it’s people. They have the Freedom to do so, yes, but it is the President’s job to protect the interests of the people and the information highway is not a one horse carriage anymore.

Monday Irony

So with the given pattern of false reporting, propagandizing, and fixation on character assassination, yet still, with all the new media venues available and the precipitous decline of the trust of the American people in the old fossilized mainstream media, the White House continues to afford the mainstream media relics a spot in the White House Press Corps, validating their unprofessional behavior and foisting on the American people something they increasingly do not want and are disgusted with.

The Unmasking: This is the Democrat Party

 

Whether immersed in complete insanity or unfettered hubris, the Democrat Party has called its own bluff and laid their cards on the table. The unmasking of the Democrat Party has been accomplished by a voting populace, whom the Democrats’ disdain could barely acknowledge and whose unrelenting pressure has caused the full reveal of the monster that lay beneath the aging political facade. Even while those within the beast misdirect their rage for this public discovery at the unrelenting President, whom these unrelenting voters have elected to be their representation in the White House, the realization has settled into the tentacles of the scaly serpent that slithers through the gilded halls of capital buildings throughout this Republic; There will be no mid-term blue wave this fall.

Some candidates, such as Jared Golden Democrat candidate for House in CD 2, are publicly admitting their dire realizations of disastrous results for their Party in the coming election. Perhaps it is a sudden awareness that Americans are a lot more American than Democrats anticipated. The lid has come off the Democrat Cauldron and the anti-American hatred that has been seething, boiling, and festering beneath the cover has come gurgling forth into open to the disgust and revulsion of the American people.

Guise and subterfuge have been all but dismantled by a self-inflicted demolition of unhinged obsessive rage at a President who doesn’t play the game. The heat of passion and adversity often reveal true character or lack thereof. The truth of the Democrat Party has been laid bare before the Nation to its own undoing.

As I have stated before, the 2nd Amendment would be the divining issue in this election. I still believe that is true. Democrats have declared all out war on the 2nd Amendment’s protection of the Natural Born

Right to self-defense. An armed America that disdains their revealed lunacies has driven Democrats to frenzied, untethered behavior. It is an armed populace that calls a halt to the most heinous of plans by the leftists.

The armed citizens also lend protection to the rest of the Constitution, which has come under renewed brazen open attacks by Democrats. They no longer mince words when decrying the Constitution as the single largest encumbrance to their Marxist agenda. The despise an America that, to their surprise, still believes in the freedoms of the people and the constraining of government.

On our borders, the Democrats are openly calling for literal invasions of illegal immigrants into this country, overwhelming our undermanned border patrols. Our President has put a stop to it. Through Executive Order, he has also put a stop to the humanitarian issue of separating families that was created by the last President’s administration.

This Order sent the issue to Congress so that they could create legislation, which would fix the problem. Democrats, as a united voting block, voted down the measure that would have kept immigrant families together. This was in obedience to Chuck Schumer’s directive to vote against any legislation which solves the immigration problem, as the Democrat leader wants to use it for a campaign issue. Exploitation at its flaming apex.

The Democrats are electing socialist candidates who openly call for free entitlements for illegal immigrants and high taxation of citizens to pay for it. Democrats are openly demanding that our salaries and earnings belong to them. They want “their” tax dollars back, despite the boom the tax cuts have been to the economy.

Democrats are calling for mobs to attack members of the President’s administration, calling on people to harass them in their personal time with families, and even giving addresses to their private homes. They have called for riots, bombings, rapes and murders of the President’s family. All this unhinged behavior, whether of intent or hyperbole, has drained the well of the American patience and tolerance, and offended the sense of common decency we most embrace.

Socialists control the populace by force. That’s why they hate the 2nd Amendment. Under the past administration, they were near to realizing a control through force of government. The revolution of the people in this past election caught Democrats off guard.

Now in desperation, they are resorting to force by violence. The mask is off and the intent to destroy this Republic is not hidden anymore. This coming election may have incidents which will be marked as dark days in our history.

Let us not relent. Do not revel in their tantrums and content with one victory. Remain engaged and meet their force of violence with our steady resolve to see this Republic restored.
