Who Gets To REDACT? Who Gets To READ? And Who Gets To KNOW?
BUT FIRST . . .
I Had Saturday Morning All Worked-Out For Me . . . First, I was going to make a Great French Toast Breakfast, then I was going to Write the Editorial you will be Reading following this brief Personal “Adventure”, and then I was going to Build a 10’ X 10’ 3-Season Screened-In Gazebo on the Deck to Replace the Sukkoth Type Pergola, which I built 4-Years Ago, and then I was going to get on my Motorcycle for the First Time this Season & Go For A Ride.
AND THEN HURRICANE FORCE WINDS STRUCK AT EXACTLY 11:00 PM EASTERN TIME:
Much of the Province of Ontario, where we live in the Summer, was CREAMED by Sustained Hurricane Force Winds for Hours Upon Hours into the Wee Morning, destroying Trees, Shelters, Roofs & ELECTRICITY.
With The Fewest Words Possible . . . It Was A Mess.
But to our Good Fortune, we Sustained No Damage, other than being out of Electricity from 11:00 O’Clock Friday Night until 6:00 O’Clock Early Saturday Evening . . . BUT:
Because of the Lack of Electricity, and Staying on a Horse Farm, and being where the Hunt Hounds are Kenneled, where 15-Got Loose Because the Electric Fence stopped Working, you can probably Imagine the Rest.
And Neither Anne Nor I Slept For More Than An Hour Here Or There.
THE BEST LAID PLANS OF MICE & MEN:
So . . . Instead of the Great Breakfast, this Forthcoming Editorial, the New Gazebo, and my Motorcycle Ride . . . I sort of helped (more as a Cheerleader) with the Restoration of Generated Power, and went with Frank on the Chase for the Hounds over Hill & Dale.
And Then We Went To Lowes & Home Depot, where Frank Bought Everything he needed (Home Depot) to Create a Permanent Generator Electric Grid Between the Barn, the Work-Shed, and the House.
Where I in turn bought a 3,000-Watt Dual Energy (Propane & Gasoline) Generator (Lowes), which Anne and I will keep with us wherever we happen to be. Neither of us ever like to be Caught-Off-Guard.
NOW HERE’S THE EDITORIAL – SHORT, SWEET & TO THE POINT:
I Remember how Richard Nixon Hid Valuable & Pertinent Information from the American People, by Claiming National Security & Executive Privilege, only because Nixon didn’t want the People to know the Truth.
I also Remember Nixon’s Supposed Media “Hit List”, which Reportedly Singled-Out Specific Journalists for Special Treatment . . . Yet – when Push came to Shove, it was these “Threatened” Journalists who seemed to have all the Gravitas Needed to Take Down Nixon’s White House with Watergate.
THAT WAS THEN & THIS IS NOW:
In all Reality, I do not Believe President Nixon ever had the Media Under his Thumb as the Media Purported . . .
Don’t Cry Me A River When Bemoaning The Plight Of Journalists In A Free Society.
BUT TODAY’S MEDIA DOES HAVE PRESIDENT TRUMP UNDER ITS THUMB!
What Part Of Sedition Does The Mainstream Media Not Understand?
BUT EVEN WORSE . . . What Part of Sedition do the People (Electorate) not Understand? And doesn’t the Media Understand that Turnabout Is Fair Play . . . & What Goes Around Comes Around . . . and if the Media can UNSEAT a Legitimately Elected President through a MEDIA COUP D’ÉTAT– Isn’t the Media Undermining it’s own Legitimacy?
What We Are Witnessing Here & Now . . . is the Cost of Generations of Academic Propaganda, which has all but PRIMED Generations over the past Half Dozen Decades, where our Children were Taught to Believe in Socialism at all Costs, Over a System of Individualistic Freedoms, Based on a Meritocracy Constructed upon Judeo/Christian Values.
Make No Mistake About It . . . THE ROT STARTS AT THE TOP – And Unless Jeff Sessions is Playing a Political Game of Rope-A-Dope, Intending to Ensnare as many of the Leaders of the SWAMP as possible, in Conjunction with the Results of the Forthcoming Michael Horowitz (IG For The Department Of Justice) Investigation . . . SESSIONS TOO, MUST BE CONSIDERED TO BE ONE OF THE BIG-FISH SWAMP DWELLERS.
There Is Absolutely No Reason In The World . . . Why the People, to whom the Government Answers, and I mean all the Government . . . should NOT be Privy to ALL THAT THE GOVERNMENT DOES, outside of Real National Security.
THE PEOPLE HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW – PERIOD!
And To The Very Best Of My Knowledge . . . Knowing who in Government is a Cheat, Incompetent, Liar, Thief – ETC . . . Has Absolutely Nothing To Do With National Security . . . But Everything To Do With A Gross Abuse Of Power & Trust.
Now I’ll Get On With Building My Gazebo . . . Then Taking That Motorcycle Ride.
