Coup of the Liberal Media
There is simply no way for Democracy to continue to function in America if we are going to continue to have a mainstream media operate in its current configuration. The press has become so biased in how it reports the news, the truth is now whatever fits its leftist agenda.
News outlets like CNN, Yahoo News, MSNBC, NBC, ABC and CBS might as well be regarded as extensions of the Democratic Party. When Obama was in power, the press worshipped at his feet, ignoring all his violations of Constitutional authority. When Trump became President, the media began attacking him on every front.
CNN spends almost 100% of its time highlighting negative news stories about Trump. That news organization has become such a twisted parody of real news reporting, I am amazed that people watch this garbage. Since about 80% of the population has some type of contact with a liberal news outlet in their daily life, this deluge of propaganda has to have an impact.
The last two special elections went to the Democratic candidates because of media intervention. In Alabama, Roy Moore had a huge lead over Doug Jones in the race for an empty senate seat. Reporters from the Washington Post came looking for dirt on Moore, and they found two women who would claim Moore made inappropriate sexual advances toward them. Moore lost the election. The next special election was in Pennsylvania between Rep. Rick Saccone and Dem. Conor Lamb. The day before that election, I saw Saccone being hounded by a mob of reporters. They peppered him with endless got-you questions. I knew he had already lost the election when he blamed his Democratic opponent for these attacks.
The media have been publishing endless stories about the high turnover rate in the Trump Administration’s senior leadership positions. In Trump’s first year in office, high-profile White House exits were higher than the past five presidents. The simple reason for the high turnover rate is the reality that anyone who joins the Trump team automatically becomes a target of the media. The press is very proud of its trophies, which is why they repeatedly run down lists of the people they have driven from office.
The viciousness in these attacks has even reached the children of Trump officials. Second Lady Karen Pence and her eldest daughter, Charlotte Pence, recently published “Marlon Bundo’s A Day in the Life of the Vice President.” The book has no political slant. “Last Week Tonight” host John Oliver decided to mock the Pence book by producing his own called – “A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo” – which similarly features the bunny; although, in this version, the story depicts Marlon Bundo falling in love with another male bunny. The John Oliver book outsold the Pence book because fellow liberal media promoted it as a way to stick a knife into the back of Pence.
Stormy Daniels is being pimped and pimping the media over her claims she had sex with a married Donald. CBS’s “60 Minutes” took a swan dive into trash TV standards by airing an interview where Stormy was cloudy when it came to providing evidence of the affair. Reporters have been following Stormy to her strip club events. I’m sure she will be on CNN a dozen times in the coming days.
The liberal media had no interest in a man who claimed he had a two-day love affair with a married Barack Obama back in 1999. Larry Sinclair claims he had a drug-induced sex romp with then-Senator Obama in Chicago after the duo was introduced by a limousine driver. Sinclair claims he performed sex acts with Mr. Obama on two occasions. Unlike Daniels (real name Stephanie Clifford), Sinclair’s allegations were quickly dismissed by the media.
Another example of the press’s double standard can be seen in the revelation of Facebook providing customer user data to political organizations. During the 2012 presidential election, Facebook was very eager to provide membership data to the Obama election. There is no protest about the giant social media site sharing data to the Democratic Party. When it was revealed that Cambridge Analytica had used Facebook for data mining for the Trump campaign, it was suddenly the crime of the century. The press is making Mark Zuckerberg into the villain who compromised the 2016 election. If Zuckerberg had been helping Clinton with the same data, there would be no story to report.
The ultimate desire of the liberal media is to control all forms of communication. When they have the ability to be the sole source of information, their brand of news will become the truth. Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak’s government has a plan that may make its way to the West. He has a bill in parliament for outlawing “fake news,” with hefty fines. Under the Anti-Fake News 2018 bill, anyone who publishes so-called fake news could face fines of up to $128,140 or up to 10 years in jail.
The most dangerous thing about the liberal media is that people don’t realize its evil nature. Many people understand that the big news networks are biased, but they still allow them to influence their views through the process of being exposed to an endless stream of propaganda. Because the devil is very crafty, we need to guard our minds to the very end.
“Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8).
End-times Trump Intrigue
Fascinating speculations are dredged from the swamp intrigues as of late. These tug mightily at my fiction-writer side, bringing out the novelist that lives there and comes out only very occasionally.
For example, I recently finished a novel I call REVELATIONS, scheduled for release by my publisher in the not-too-distant future. The past couple of weeks have brought forth intrigues surrounding this president I wish I would have had to work with back when I was trying to do my 1200-1500 words per day during those early morning hours.
Story-telling possibilities keep coming forth that would have provided exciting fodder for any Clancy novel. But, real life in the case of what’s been going on in the D.C. Swamp might make a Tom Clancy determine that the reality was just too implausible to make for believable fiction.
I’m not in that stratospheric, novelist class within which the late, great Tom Clancy dwelt. So I haven’t his likely inhibition against mixing the swamp realities with a fictional plot, regardless of the chances it might all come across as unbelievable.
And, I’m not composing here a novel or short story. Rather, I’m writing a straight-forward commentary, therefore I’m safe in just presenting what I see as things that are possibly brewing. I’m not at all certain about the prophetic implications all of this might portend. However, that there are prophetic implications embedded in these intrigues, I have no doubt.
This all blossomed into a storm that talk-show host Rush Limbaugh said threatened President Donald Trump’s base of voters going “wobbly.” The president informed the press that he would sign the $1.3 trillion budget bill to keep the government going. Then, on the eve of the signing scheduled for the next day, he threatened to veto the bill, throwing media, the Democrats, and many within Congress into a frenzy.
Trump’s voter base, Limbaugh said, supports the president because of promises he made and has diligently worked to keep. Nobody can separate them from Trump, Limbaugh said, no matter how hard the Democrats, media, and Washington establishment try in assaulting him with all of their false accusations. Only Trump, himself, can cause the separation, and that by the president failing to stick to his agenda: 1) getting a border wall built; 2) stopping the massive influx of illegal immigrants; and 3) upholding the 2nd Amendment, the right to bear arms.
There are many other things the Trump base voted for in electing him to the presidency. but those are some main reasons.
Donald Trump, although threatening a veto of the huge spending bill that was full of Democrat Party social-spending demands, including funding of Planned Parenthood, followed through on his declaration that he would sign. This, according to Limbaugh and many of the conservative coalition within Congress and other support groups might cause Trump supporters to stay home in November of 2018 when mid-term elections are held.
In that case, the Democrats might win back the House, possibly the Senate. That would mean immediate attempts at impeachment. –That, based upon Special Counsel Robert Muller finding impeachable offenses with his seemingly endless investigation, originally into Trump-Russian collusion during the 2016 election. This, despite the fact that there has been no evidence found of such collusion.
President Trump held a press conference Friday March 23, at which he somewhat somberly gave a lengthy explanation of why he signed the bill that gave the Democrats much of what they wanted.
He said he was “very disappointed” in the package, in part because it did not fully pay for his planned border wall with Mexico and did not extend protection from deportation to some 700,000 “Dreamer” immigrants due to lose coverage under a program the president himself has moved to eliminate.
But Trump praised the bill’s provisions to increase military spending and said he had “no choice but to fund our military.”
He then went on to give extensive details on that military spending that will now be funded with more than $700 billion as part of the budget-spending package.
And, here is where the intrigues come in, in my estimation.
I’m of the very strong belief that the military is likely in much worse shape than the American public has been told. This is the only pressure that would make Donald Trump risk alienating his staunch voter base. The military, I sense, has to play catch-up at a phenomenal pace in order to keep the nation safe from the likes of Russia, China, and even from North Korea and Iran, who have been on massive arms build-up programs during the Obama years of neglect.
And, here’s where my novelist instincts kick in.
The American military at the level of the fighting generals–not the arm-chair generals of the D.C. establishment–know they have a genuine champion on their side. They embrace this president because they recognize what his predecessor did to greatly degrade the armed services. They have just been shown his loyalty to the nation’s safekeeping, and to the military’s great need of funding.
Trump, in my observation, went to extraordinary lengths in that presser to explain that it was the necessity of funding the military that made him risk alienating his supporter base. He was telling the non-political top officers that he is a friend to be trusted. It might soon become necessary for the military leadership to demonstrate that they have his back, as well.
The globalists want Trump gone at any cost. They make no attempt to hide that desire. The one-world conglomerate includes a great number within the U.S. State Department, the so-called deep state ensconced within the U.S. intelligence community, and even the Washington D.C. establishment cabal, including Republicans who are totally opposed to Trump’s outsider status.
This treachery is all backed up by the media–news, entertainment and social–who also want things to return to nefarious business as usual in Washington D.C.
This is very conspiratorial thinking, I’ll acknowledge. But, as I said, my novelist persona has emerged for writing this commentary. The fictioneer in me wonders whether the president might have been forewarned that there might be an attempted coup d’état when those of the so-called deep state become convinced–as they are learning–that they can’t remove him any other way.
Satan’s minions, both human and demonic, are in full rage against American sovereignty–against this president who champions that sovereignty. If these combined forces were to attempt to forcibly remove the president, unconstitutionally, Trump would almost certainly have the U.S. military–minus the Pentagon political types on his side.
This would certainly be a horrendous situation—for the U.S. military, in effect, to have to take over in such a situation. It could lead to dictatorship if someone or a group within the military establishment with tyrannical proclivities came to power.
This is all fictional rumination—or is it? It would be foolish to dogmatically declare that the scenario describe has not already been contemplated. I can almost assure that it has, and even now is being considered. The very nature of military contingency planning dictates that every possibility be taken into account.
When the Rapture of all believers in Jesus Christ occurs, times on earth will indeed be precarious. The scenario above might be mild in comparison to things happening on this judgment-bound planet as they roll out toward the coming time of Antichrist.
All of the intrigues of this fallen world will be left behind as the Lord leads the redeemed through the gates of Glory.
You and I want to be part of that procession!
