First Amendment Undermined by Not So Free Press :: By Bill Wilson

The news media is jeopardizing its First Amendment credibility with its irresponsible reporting and attempts to demonize anybody in disagreement with its leftist globalist agenda. The most recent news conference with President Donald Trump revealed how the delusional media views fake news. The reporter tried to blame Trump for the media’s credibility problems, asking the President:

“But aren’t you concerned, sir, that you are undermining the people’s faith in the First Amendment freedom of the press, the press in this country when you call stories you don’t like ‘fake news?’ Why not just say it’s a story I don’t like?” Herein, it’s the press that is undermining the people’s faith in the First Amendment.

Trump responded:

 But I know what’s good. I know what’s bad. And when they change it and make it really bad—something that should be positive. Sometimes something that should be very positive, they’ll make okay. They’ll even make it negative. So I understand it because I’m there. I know what was said. I know who is saying it. I’m there. So it’s  very important to me. Look, I want to see an honest press. When I started off today by saying that it’s so important to the public to get an honest press. The press—the public doesn’t believe you people anymore.

In reality, the press is going wild quoting unnamed sources without verification and reporting illegally leaked information as if it were fact. Case in point: The shadow government and deep state want panic about the possibility that Trump will deport millions of illegals. AP reported that the White House was calling up 100,000 National Guard troops to round up illegals and send them back to wherever they came from.

The White House categorically denied that the report was even remotely factual. But the report was made without verifying the source or the memo the source quoted. A free press in bondage to an ideal or agenda is not free at all. The false narrative that the president is undermining the people’s faith in the First Amendment by criticizing the media-is an extraordinary example of the twisted demeanor of the news media.

Exodus 20:16 states, “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.”

Telling the truth is the basis of good journalism. And Truth comes from where? Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me.” He goes on to say in verse 17, “Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it sees him not, neither knows him: but you know him; for he dwells with you, and shall be in you.”

These so-called journalists cannot recognize truth because it’s not in them.

The First Amendment, a unique guarantee of Liberty, is undermined when liars lie with impunity while disguising the lies as truth. We need to pray and act to hold accountability, especially within the “Church” where the truth should be rightly discerned and spoken of boldly that good is not considered evil.

Why the “Church” Must Stand NOW :: By Bill Wilson

The latest report on the unconstitutional shadow government is an article in Foreign Policy magazine by Rosa Brooks, former Pentagon advisor in the previous administration, now working for the George Soros-funded New America Foundation. Brooks suggests a military coup to oust President Donald Trump. Brooks wrote, “One possibility is one that until recently I would have said was unthinkable in the United States of America: a military coup, or at least a refusal by military leaders to obey certain orders.”

This, combined with an army of usurpers 30,000 strong in the ex-“president’s” Marxist Organizing for America group, and a court system stacked with progressives, is a dangerous marker for America.

Why is this an important prophetic time for the “Church?” Christians, through their lack of participation as responsible citizens by not voting, were the one block that allowed two terms of the most communistic and Islamic “president” America has ever seen. During his tenure, religious rights and free speech were repeatedly attacked.

It is fully documented that Christian churches, businesses and organizations were singled out and demonized for their beliefs. National security documents attacked religious freedom by suggesting that those who believe abortion and homosexuality is wrong were extreme radical threats to our country. While all along Islamists were killing people in the US in the name of Allah.

The “Church” apparently had enough of this foolishness in 2016 and rose up, voting as a block and defeating the Islamic Marxist globalist candidate. This action alone fomented a nationwide temper tantrum by the malcontents. They have labeled Christian conservatives as Nazis, bigots, racists, homophobes, xenophobes and whatever else, while they themselves are acting out the very traits of their accusations.

Meanwhile, it appears the “Church” has once again disappeared. The “Church,” you and me, must resist every temptation to withdraw from society, thinking that a strong, conservative-minded president will do our bidding. He alone cannot. There is organized, lawless and godless opposition.

Our country, the foremost beacon of religious freedom in the world, is faced with a revolution aimed at taking away our Constitutional freedoms. First will be freedom of religion and of speech. Next will be the right to bear arms. This is the pattern in every country that allows Marxism and/or Islamism.

It moves from anarchy to despotism in short order, muzzling people, replacing God with government, and disarmament. Take heed “Church.” You must stand NOW, not stand down. We must pray. We must be vocal. We must tell the story of righteousness and godly sense. We must act courageously. Or we are going to face a dark and violent future. As Romans 13:12 says, “The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.” Answer this prophetic and clarion call.
Have a blessed and powerful day!
