I’m Getting DIZZY with all the MACHINATIONS coming out of Washington DC. Who said WHAT? Who was responsible for THIS . . . or responsible for THAT? Was it Ryan or was it the President? . . . And Of Course The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming . . . OR WAS IT THE FREEDOM CAUCUS?
AND IN A ONE ON ONE FIGHT AGAINST THE FREEDOM CAUCUS . . . As For Trump . . . HASTA LA VISTA DONALD.
And now with Ivanka Trump moving into the White House, and Trump’s ongoing threat to include the Democrats OVER the Republican Freedom Caucus . . . & ON & ON & ON . . . It’s like being in the Middle of a Political Centrifuge, Praying for it to STOP . . .
BUT WHAT DOESN’T MAKE ME DIZZY . . . AND KEEPS ME ON TERRA FIRMA:
IT’S FAR TOO EASY . . . to get caught up in the BS and Intrigue of the Political Morass called Government, when we look at the Minutia of Everyday Events.
AND IT’S FAR TOO EASY . . . to get HORNSWOGGLED by the Media, thinking even for a second that the Media, in the words of FOX News . . . is really “Fair And Balanced”, when in all honesty . . . Nothing Could Be Further From The Truth.
THE MEDIA IS TWO THINGS:
FIRST AND FOREMOST . . . The media is all about MAKING MONEY. And to make Money, the Media NEEDS to either sell Subscriptions, Advertisements, or enough of a Combination of BOTH, which they do by SENSATIONALIZING their Stories.
SECOND . . . Today’s Media is Controlled by Conglomerates, many of which are International by Nature, even though their Base is Nationally Local . . . TO WHICH THEY ALL HAVE AGENDAS.
The Day of the Family-Owned Media Empire . . . is all but Gone. And so too are the Locally Owned Media, where the Publisher and/or Broadcaster actually Live in the Community where He or She Publishes and/or Broadcasts . . . So – to use a Legal Term, but not in the LEGAL SENSE . . . Today’s Media have NO MORAL STANDING, even within the Markets, where they DIFFUSE THEIR INFORMATION.
WE SEEM TO ASSUME ONLY THE NEWS MEDIA HAS POLITICAL INFLUENCE- NOT TRUE:
LAST NIGHT . . . Anne and I were catching-up on the Latest Television Episode of the Series HOMELAND, Starring Mandy Patinkin, who is also a Producer of the Show. HOMELAND, from its inception, was America’s NUMBER ONE Cable Drama Show (Showtime), Winning In Virtually All Mainstream Media Awards Categories.
In its early incarnation . . . HOMELAND was an Extremely Popular Show with a HUGE and Significant Audience, which Highlighted the Underbelly of International Subterfuge between Islamists and the West. But, over the past Few Years, HOMELAND has become a CHEERLEADER for the FAR LEFT, in as much as GOING FULL THROAT TO PROMOTE THE OBAMA AGENDA . . . SPECIFICALLY OBAMA’S IRAN DEAL.
AND NOW . . . In HOMELAND’S Final Year – this once really Great and Entertaining Show, has MORPHED into a SUBLIME REPUDIATION of SUPPOSED Conservative American Values, while also FOCUSING on SUPPOSED Conservative ISRAELI Treachery.
THIS EDITORIAL IS NOT A REVIEW OF TELEVISION PRODUCTIONS . . . BUT:
I didn’t write about HOMELAND as a Critique for Entertainment Value . . . but RATHER, as an ILLUSTRATION of how far we’ve fallen to the LEFT.
Mandy Patinkin . . . in many regards is VERY Jewish. You might remember him from his Role as the Quirky yet Brilliant Contrarian Surgeon on the Television Series Chicago Hope, and then as the Psychoanalyst Profiler of Criminal Minds.
Anne and I saw Patinkin LIVE in Montreal, quite a few Years Ago at Place Des Arts, Singing to a Sold-Out Audience. It was ONLY Patinkin with a Pianist Playing an Old Fashioned Upright Piano on a BARE-BONED FULLY LIT STAGE, with ZERO special effects, performing his CLASSIC MAMALOSHEN, which is a Compilation of some of America’s Greatest and Most Treasured Songs . . . Including Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious from Mary Poppins, Take Me Out To The Ballgame and Kate Smith’s Anthem – GOD BLESS AMERICA . . . ALL SUNG IN ABSOLUTE CLASSIC YIDDISH.
IT WAS A PURE ENTERTAINMENT SPECTACLE TO BEHOLD . . . Better than anything I had ever seen Live-On-Stage, and I’ve seen a lot. In short, IT WAS UNADULTERATED TALENT, WHICH IS WHY IT PAINS ME MORE THAN I CAN DESCRIBE.
HERE IS AN EXCEPTIONAL ACTOR . . . and a Singer who is SECOND TO NONE, with a Range of Vocals . . . the Likes of which have no equal, who is VERY Jewish, whose FAMILY IMMIGRATED to AMERICA from RUSSIA & LATVIA at the Turn of the 20th Century, like most European Jews from that ERA, so they and their Families could Escape Rank European Government Inspired Anti-Semitism, Disenfranchisement, and Pogroms . . . in search of the Promise of the FREEDOM & SAFETY America Provided . . .
AND HERE WE HAVE . . . Not even a Century Later, an Unbelievably Gifted Man, who is Tasting all the Wonders at the End Of The American Rainbow, available to him and all others, ONLY because of the US Constitution, CREATED by HONEST-TO-GOODNESS American Patriots, who were Solidly Conservative by Nature, doing everything he can to DESTROY the Dream, which has carried him and his to the LOFTIEST OF HEIGHTS, Truly Believing in his SICK SOCIALIST MIND, that what he’s doing is “NOBLE & PROGRESSIVE”.
AND PERHAPS EVEN WORSE . . . As a Jewish Canadian, who is an UNCONDITIONAL & UNABASHED supporter of Israel, I am BEARING WITNESS of a Man of my own Religious Culture and Beliefs, who is SO JEWISH, that he NEAR ALWAYS Represents his Acting Characters as being Jewish, who is PROMOTING a DEFAMATION Against Conservative America, while DEFENDING Islamists and the Obama Iran Nuclear Agreement, while Patinkin is simultaneously PORTRAYING ISRAEL AS AN EVIL & UNTRUSTWORTHY SOCIETY.
THIS EDITORIAL ISN’T ABOUT HOMELAND OR A JEWISH ACTOR:
This Editorial is written to ILLUSTRATE JUST HOW EVIL & PUGNACIOUS is the LEFT . . . FROM EVERY FACET of the Socio/Political Spectrum, to the point . . . that as EGREGIOUS as many of Trump’s Tweets, Threats and Flip Flops might be, and as disappointing and aggravating as they are to me . . . ONE PRESIDENT TRUMP IS MILES ABOVE & BEYOND A HUNDRED OBAMAS & CLINTONS.
THEREFORE . . . I will Temper what I write, and FOCUS on the REAL Enemy, opposed to the FOLLIES, which will be a Steady Socio/Political Diet from the LEFT & RINOS, over the Forthcoming 4-Years, and Hopefully Beyond.
SO – WHEN I WATCH SUCH A WELL CRAFTED SHOW AS HOMELAND, which is Just One of HUNDREDS of other SLICK LEFTIST SHOWS, which at their Heart and Soul are nothing more than Un-American Productions, which are CONTRARY to the VALUES, which CREATED THE GREATEST & FREEST COUNTRY ON THE PLANET . . . I have to ask myself the FOLLOWING . . .
EASIEST CHOICE I EVER HAD TO MAKE:
SHOULD I FOCUS ON THE TRUMP PECCADILLOS? . . . Or should I Turn All My FIREPOWER at the INSIDIOUS Enemy From Within, ESPECIALLY when that Enemy’s PROPAGANDA is Flying at us from EVERY DIRECTION?
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
