NOTHING IN OUR FREEDOMS “TRUMP” FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION:
The Only Freedom we have in the World, which Guarantees all of our Freedoms, is our FREEDOM to Fully Express Ourselves, mostly Guaranteed by the REAL THREAT & PROMISE OF VIOLENCE against the Government, which would otherwise Abrogate our Freedom of Expression if it could.
In The USA . . . It’s Called The 2nd . . . Which The LEFT Can’t Seem To Understand.
I Write Prolifically About Threats, Challenges, Dishonesty & the Inhumanity which Faces the World – But Mostly, I Write About Threats, which challenge us in Canada, the USA & Israel, only because the Mainstream Media Doesn’t Write or Broadcast many News Stories, which need to be Told – AND FAR TOO OFTEN, the Media Neither Tells the Truth, and far Too Often Only The Half-Truth.
HERE’S AN EXAMPLE – SUNDAY NIGHT . . . Last Night (February 11, 2018), Steve Kroft of CBS’S “Vaunted Award Winning News Magazine” – 60-Minutes, had a Special on Legislation waiting for Passage in the Senate, which will be Signed by President Trump, which will Finally Acknowledge the Full Meaning of the Second Amendment, BY ALLOWING LEGAL-CONSTITUTIONAL-CARRY THROUGH ALL 50-STATES.
SO I WATCHED THE BROADCAST . . . & SUBSEQUENT AFTER-THE-SHOW SUMMARY:
DO YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT FAIR & BALANCED? . . . The 60-Minute Overtime Segment . . . Shows the Tattooed Hand & Wrist of a Man Being Fingerprinted to get his Gun-Carry Permit, as if all Gun-Carry Permit Holders are Heavily Tattooed Thugs . . . looking like Gang Bangers. How Fair Was That?
The Immediate Following Segment, illustrated a younger man, who was showing his Belted Holstered Gun, Extra Magazine, and then his Ankle Holster, as if all Gun-Carry Permit Holders are Armed To-The-Teeth waiting for Action.
Steve Kroft, in the same Segment, Interviewed with a Smug Elitist Minded Female Gun-Hater, who said to her, that he had to Broadcast this Issue, because not that many People are aware of this Pending Legislation, as if all Hell Was Going To Break Loose. As if it was his Moral Duty.
Which might or might not be True. But even if it is True, that People Don’t Know . . . WHOSE FAULT IS THAT?
Kroft then goes on to say . . . “It’s Not A Constitutional Right To Carry Firearms”, which couldn’t be further from the Truth. But since when, does the TRUTH become a Reason for Telling the Truth by a Liberal?
THEN KROFT PROVED WHY THE MEDIA CAN’T BE TRUSTED – EVEN 60-MINUTES:
Kroft was Interviewing a Red State Gun-Advocate on a Busy Manhattan Street Corner, when Kroft asked the Gun-Advocate if he Felt “Naked & Threatened” By Not Having A Gun On Himself . . .?
Then Kroft Went On To Say To The Elitist Gun-Hater – And I Quote . . . “He Said By The Way, That He Thought Lots Of People Right There Were Carrying Guns”.
THE REAL RESPONSE WAS . . . “There Are A Lot Of People Walking Around Us, There Is At Least Somebody Has A Gun”.
That’s quite a difference between . . . “LOTS OF PEOPLE ARE CARRYING GUNS” as was quoted by Steve Kroft of 60-Minutes . . . to “At Least Somebody Has A Gun”, as was said by The Gun-Advocate.

NOTHING IS MORE DANGEROUS TO OUR FREEDOMS THAN A DISHONEST MEDIA!
As you probably know from Reading this BLOG . . . I am an Unabashed History Freak, mostly because I Truly Believe, that if we don’t Know the Past, we will Repeat it in the Future.
Yesterday . . . It was a Pretty Cold & Dismal Day here in the Austin area of Texas, so I decided to stay Indoors & Binge on an Historical Multi Series Documentary of WWII, detailing what led up to the War, how the War was Fought, and how the Allies eventually Won.
I WAS MORE DISAPPOINTED THAN JUST SOMEWHAT . . . With How The Allies Were Presented. But Specifically Canada.
I AM A CANADIAN . . . MY PARENTS WERE CANADIAN & MY PARENTS WERE HEROES:
Watching this Extremely well Told History of WWII, Bothered me to no end, not by what was told, BUT BY WHAT WAS NOT TOLD. The Sin of Omission is no Less Sinful than Telling a Lie.
LYING, DISTORTING OR WITHHOLDING THE TRUTH ARE ALL EQUALLY REPULSIVE:
If the ONLY Reference you would have to WWII History, was from this Documentary Series, you would think the Entire War was Fought & Won by the British, Americans, Russians, French and Somewhat by the Australians . . . So Let Me Set The Historical Record Straight.
CANADA SACRIFICED GREATLY & DID FAR MORE THAN CANADA’S FAIR SHARE:
Canada DECLARED War on the German Axis within Hours of England Declaring War, In September 1939, which was almost TWO YEARS BEFORE AMERICA Got into the War because of Pearl Harbor In December 1941.
Almost Half of All Eligible Canadian Men VOLUNTEERED (1.1 Million) for Combat-Duty Overseas . . . which was Way Above & Beyond any other Significant Ally, with the Exception of the Russians, who Fought because they were under Attack, and were Fighting for their Survival, only Because Adolf Hitler Reneged on his Deal to Carve Up Eastern Europe with Stalin.
Canada had the 4th Largest Merchant Marine In The World, which was used at Incredible Risk to keep England Supplied during the Worst of it, which was PROTECTED by Canada’s Navy, one of the Largest Navies during the War, which Commanded the Battle of the Atlantic, while Engaging in Daily Battle with Nazi U-Boat Wolf Packs from Beginning to End.
And ONLY because of Gross Incompetence by the British High Command (General Louis Mountbatten), which Assumed Leadership over Canadian Troops, Canada took a Massive Beating at Dieppe, the Precursor to D-Day.
Canadians . . . were Amongst the First to Land at Sicily, and was one of the Key Allies to Fight & Defeat the Nazis at Casino, where my Dad was Wounded, Kept Fighting with his Wounds & All . . . And Was Decorated As a Result.
Canadians were the First Allied Soldiers to Liberate the Netherlands, where my Dad was Awarded THE BRONZE LION, by Her Majesty Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands, which was the Second Highest Medal the Netherlands had to offer.
AND EVEN TODAY, more than 70-Years after the Liberation of the Netherlands, Dutch Children Still Lay Flowers At The Graves Of Fallen Canadian Soldiers.
Canadians Fought at D-DAY on our Own Beach – Juno Beach . . . where Canadians did Everything & More that was Asked and Expected of Us.
CANADA FOUGHT EVERYWHERE. WHERE THERE WAS COMBAT . . . THERE WAS CANADA:
SO . . . To tell the History of WWII, while ignoring Canada, as if Canada was some kind of a Side-Show, Instead of being a Vital Partner, without whose Commitment, England would have surely Fallen, is a Disgrace to the Tellers of History . . . and an Incredible Insult to the People of Canada.
To Omit The Past . . . Is No Less A Lie & A Sin.
TODAY IS THE DAY . . . HONEST ABE & ME:
