Frenzy

 

The impeachment ship is foundering in the breakers of the Mueller report. From blaming Trump election despondency for their obsessive reporting to outright denial, the old guard media is at loss to explain how their spin got “unspun” before the eyes of the Nation. The old ships are taking on water.

The frenzy to destroy a man, to be his undoing, has Americans wondering if they are witnessing a psychosis of sorts. To be so prejudiced against an individual that some in the public eye are willing to abandon any and all tethers to reason, is unsettling to the average citizen. Americans have begun to recoil from the crazed who crave destruction.

Maine was left in the best financial position it has been in decades, but here too the frenzy took hold. Focused instead on a Governor who some found offensive in manner and deed, the quest to destroy his accomplishments engaged at full throttle at the inaugural of his replacement. Governor Mills has left no dollar unspent.

Moving at a frenetic pace, the Democrat controlled branches of Maine’s government have managed to spend themselves into the red before the end of the first quarter of the first year of Governor Mills’ first term, surpassing the predictions of even the most cynical prognosticators of doom. Mainers have been barraged by a blunderbuss of tax increase bills leaving the Maine taxpayer feeling fiscally bludgeoned and scurrying to hide their wages in every secret chamber they can find knowing that Governor Tax Mills cometh. With no less than five bills to increase tax on heating oil and fuel, Democrats have served warning that they will tax anything and tax some more to feed their blood-lust to destroy every iota of the accomplishments of the Governor they love to hate.

Monday Irony

So called “adults” in media and entertainment who, after attempting to defame, smear, harass, and threaten to harm the lives of children on the basis of fabrication, think apologies and deleted tweets are sufficient for absolution.

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?!
