I’ve received more than the Usual amount of Emails I usually receive concerning Editorials I’ve written, which are based on the Last Editorial; I guess it’s because the FACTS of the Last Editorial Vis A Vis the G-20 Pretenders and Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, have simply Touched a very Sensitive Nerve amongst the Readers of this BLOG.
AND AFTER REREADING WHAT I WROTE . . . I TOO BECAME RE-AGGRAVATED:
Sometimes, it’s the Second Go-Around after Writing the First Editorial on a Subject, which Triggers MORE Passion than the Original . . . which I believe is the Case Today.
SO LET ME START WITH THE G-20:
The Leaders of the G-20 – ALL OF THEM . . . Including President Trump, do not have the Love and Support of the Majority of their Respective Country’s Population.
But that being said, as I wrote yesterday – President Trump was the ONLY LEADER AT THE G-20, who made it 100% Clear . . . that his Primary Interest was in WHAT IS BEST FOR HIS COUNTRY, which to me says EVERYTHING.
ALL THE OTHER LEADERS . . . Wearing their G-20 Pins, like little Badges of Honor, seemed to be Pandering to each other to Demonstrate who Amongst them is the Best Globalist of this Motley Crew, including the Jerk, whether I like it or not, WHICH I DO NOT, who is my Canadian Prime Minister.
I CAN’T IMAGINE . . . Voting for a National Leader who cares Equally, or MORE-SO for other Countries, than he or she does for his or her own. Yet – STUPID People who lead these Societies, all around the World . . . INCLUDING AMERICAN LEFTISTS campaign and vote to undermine their own GREATNESS.
THIS IS WHY I WROTE YESTERDAY . . . That whether I am Pleased or Not with many of the things President Trump has Said or Done, or DIDN’T SAY OR DO doesn’t matter a Hill of Beans to me, because President Donald Trump was Elected BY the People of the United States of America, FOR the People of the United States of America, and OF the People of the United States of America TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
How Simple Is That?
OVER THE PAST DECADES . . . Especially since the End of Ronald Reagan’s Two Terms, the Politicians and Bureaucrats have SLOW-WALKED AMERICA towards LEFTIST Socialist Oblivion . . . WITHOUT THE PEOPLE EVEN KNOWING IT.
All the Many Wonderful things that Initially made America Great from 1776-ON, have through the Decades and Generations MORPHED through LEFTIST Propaganda, and REALLY BAD POLITICIANS . . . to somehow go from being GREAT to IRRELEVANT to EMBARRASSING to Offensive.
It’s No Less Than America Should Be Ashamed Of It’s Successes & Greatness.
AS I’VE REPEATEDLY WRITTEN OVER THE YEARS . . .
The Greatest FREEDOM and GUARANTEE of FREEDOM we have . . . comes from what should be our UNFETTERED FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION . . . where it is not only the RIGHT, but it is INDEED THE DUTY, of all the Press (Media) to Legitimately Question and Expose Dishonesty, Incompetence, and Corruption EVERYWHERE . . . BUT NOWHERE MORE-SO – THAN AMONGST OUR POLITICAL CLASS.
As I’ve written Several Times . . . The FRAMERS of the US Constitution were so CONVINCED that Freedom of Expression, but SPECIFICALLY amongst the Press, was so VITAL to the Freedom of America, that in the First Amendment, the Framers included a SPECIAL CLAUSE, which Applies Specifically for the Press, that ONLY they, the Press, which the Framers had bestowed upon them, which gives the Press the Unencumbered Ability to Honestly Report on Whatever it is they Wish, WITHOUT EVER HAVING TO REVEAL THEIR SOURCE, or be in Fear of Government Recriminations.
I AM NOT AWARE . . . of this Incredible Right – having ever been bestowed upon any other National Media, to the extent that it is to the American Media, which makes the OBJECTIONABLE AMERICAN MEDIA . . . Even More OUTRAGEOUS, since the Greatest Singular Gift to America’s Freedoms, is being USED, ABUSED & SQUANDERED FOR PROPAGANDA PURPOSES in order to Promote a Political Philosophy . . . which is Antithetical to the GIFT the Media (Press) were given by the Framers of the US Constitution, so the Media would always be the First & Last Line Of Defense . . . as the Guardians At The Gate of FREEDOM.
NOT ONLY IS THE MEDIA . . . Not Honoring This Incredible Gift They’ve Received, THEY’RE USING IT TO UNDERMINE THE VERY REASON IT WAS CREATED FOR THEM.
YELLOW JOURNALISM COMES IN MANY FLAVORS:
1 – Lie About Events.
2 – Slant The News By Favoring One Side Over The Other.
3 – Report Only One Side Of A Story.
4 – DON’T REPORT EVENTS WHICH GO AGAINST THE NARRATIVE.
In North America Today . . . as in the entire World, WE ARE BEARING WITNESS to the Utter Incompetence, Dishonesty and Lack of Integrity of the Media, which if unabated, will lead to our Disintegration as a FREE Society.
WHAT THE LEFT SEEMS EITHER NOT TO UNDERSTAND OR CARE ABOUT . . . is that what is Good For The Goose – Is No Less Good For The Gander, or what Goes Around Comes Around, meaning that once we cross the MEDIA RUBICON, where Truth & Facts are no Longer a Relevant Factor in the Dissemination of News – EVERYTHING that was built upon the FOUNDATION of the First Amendment CANNOT & WILL NOT STAND.
SO . . . whether it’s a Host of POMPOUS JACKASSES in Germany at the G-20, who are NOT CALLED-OUT by the Media for the DESPICABLES & INCOMPETENTS THEY GENERALLY ARE, or for Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, for REWARDING a Canadian Moslem TERRORIST, who Murdered One American while Partially Blinding Another . . . one has to ask – FOR WHAT REASON DO WE NEED A FREE PRESS, if this Free Press Tailors the News for their Own Political and Profitable Corporate Ends & Agenda?
I AM INCENSED MORE AT THE MEDIA THAN I AM AT THE G-20 POLITICIANS:
I’ve already written this several times over the YEARS, but it’s so important to me, THAT I WILL WRITE IT AGAIN.
When I was Growing-Up – for some unexplainable reason . . . I believed that becoming a Journalist was the MOST NOBLE CALLING IN THE WORLD. I Believed so Much in the NOBILITY of Journalism, that I never thought I had the Right Stuff to Pursue Journalism as a CALLING.
I was the Editor of our High School Mimeographed Newspaper. I was a Sports Writer for the Evening Students’ University News Paper, while simultaneously, I was the Sports Editor of the Day Students’ News Paper, both at Montreal’s Sir George Williams University.
FOR MONTHS . . . and at our Own Expense (Anne and Mine), I actually Wrote and Published a Limited Weekly Newspaper, more of a 4-Page Flyer without Ads, which was distributed (5000 Copies) throughout our Community by way of the Post Office, to every Door in the Community, which Highlighted the RIDICULOUS Spending and Inequitable Taxation by our Community’s Mayor and Council. I did this at Considerable Personal Expense for Quite a While, because I FELT than, as I still do, that People are ENTITLED to the Truth and the Facts.
AND AFTER THE 1995 REFERENDUM . . . for Quebec to Leave Confederation, and because of my Absolute ACTIVISM in the Unabashed DEFENSE of Freedom of Expression, I was given a Radio Talk Show on a very Low Rated Radio Montreal Station, CIQC, formerly CFCF, which in its Day was Number One.
AND AFTER A VERY SHORT TIME . . . of my being on that Station – Its Glory Days Were Coming Back – Not because I was a Smooth Talker, which by Radio Personality Standards I Am Not & Was Not, but rather, IT WAS BECAUSE I “TALKED” THE SHAMELESS UNADULTERATED TRUTH.
WHEN DID THE LEFT CORNER-THE-MARKET ON THEIR PERCEIVED MEDIA TRUTH?
I’M NOW 67-YEARS OLD . . . And here I am – FINALLY doing what I think I should have been doing my Entire Life, but maybe I needed a Lifetime of Experiences, Successes, and MANY FAILURES before I realized that this was my CALLING all along.
Maybe it has taken the SHEER ARROGANCE, INCOMPETENCE, & DISHONESTY of the Media to finally make me realize that NO ONE has the Market Cornered on the TRUTH, and that My Voice, whether Written or Vocal, is NO LESS RELEVANT than the voice of others. And to paraphrase the Ancient Hebrew Sage Hillel – “IF NOT ME WHO? AND IF NOT NOW WHEN”?
And then there’s the Inspiration . . . KNOWN AS GRANDMA MOSES, who didn’t Start Painting in Earnest until She was 78-Years Old.
The Audience of this BLOG is NOT Young, we are all pretty SEASONED with no Shortage of Experiences, Successes and Failures.
We’ve all known Happiness and Misery. And whether we like it or not, it very well might be us . . . who will be the FINAL GUARDIANS AT THE GATE, which is NO SMALL CALLING, and perhaps the Greatest and MOST Noble Challenge in our Lifetimes Yet.
And just because some of us might believe that Time Has Passed Us By . . . IT HASN’T. Donald Trump is 71-Years Old, and he’s already looking forward to SEVEN & A HALF MORE YEARS.
