Things We Need Know for After Inauguration

 

The mainstream media does have some useful information if one can stand reading long enough to glean something useful. What one need remember is the mainstream media is also the playbook, play caller, coach, quarterback, message board, megaphone and the best comical future picture painter imaginable for the extreme left and Democrat Party, though we repeat ourselves. Despite great agony and struggling through as many typos and misspelled words, we would like to think even more than we miss here at BTC; these are a few of the items we found.

 

The most important item which has been made clear in so many ways is that the Presidency of Donald Trump will have been the greatest disaster in American history. Once in office, President Donald Trump will have wasted the talent, what little there may be, of his Cabinet and anybody who is worth a plug nickel will have quit within the first six months, if not weeks or days, because they will find they cannot work with such a megalomaniacal dunce whose brightest ideas will be which club to use when playing miniature golf as he will not even be capable of playing real golf as well a President Barack Obama had. The American people will find that they miss having President Obama in the White House with his steady hand guiding the nation through peril after peril while a President Trump will be have been causing peril after peril. The predictions of disasters continued with the statement that President Trump will have started a war with China, Mexico, most of Europe, Iran, North Korea, Cuba, much of South America, possibly Canada and will be in bed with the Russians serving the demands and at the beck and call of Putin and being led around through Russian hackers feeding him information through Twitter posts. These were some of the highlights but there was far more.

 

The Congress will revolt against President Trump as the legislation he sends them will appear to have been written by one of the beauty queens from his pageant days or one of the fired apprentices. Congress will be forced to be the adult in the government and the Democrats are prepared to prevent President Trump from causing any real or serious damage to the standing of the United States in the world. The Democrats will follow through magnificently in their promise to protect the high standards set by President Obama in his dealing in foreign policy. The Democrats will have found many the Republican allies who also understand the need to protect the United States from President Trump and are prepared to block everything sent to Congress by President Trump (this one almost has a ring of validity even we must admit). There will prove to be many Republican lawmakers who will be adult enough to admit their party sent a man-child to do the grown-up job of president and will work to message this childish egomaniac’s feelings of self-worth by stroking his self-image while rewriting any legislation making it work for the people and help those who require government to assist them in managing their lives rather than giving the rich more wealth taken from the backs of the most needy. The idea that the wealthy can be enriched by taking wealth from the most needy has always baffled us as the most needy do not have sufficient wealth to even make the average American wealthier by any actual measure, let alone the wealthy. Of course we realize they really mean giving largess from the government coffers to the wealthiest rather than giving it to the most needy, though the government does appear to do a great amount of both. This can be seen in the fact that many on welfare have a decent apartment with air-conditioning, at least one television, more often than not at least one computer or game console, a microwave, cable television feed, Internet access and most have at least one vehicle. This is about average for a middle class family back in the 1970’s had with obvious changes due to technological advancements. Let us return to what we found in the media, mostly online versions of print media.

 

By the end of President Trump’s first year even the most stalwart Republicans will have fallen in line with bringing impeachment against the President simply out of abject fear he is on track to force the next world war, had proven dangerously reckless with threats of using nuclear weapons and the Joint Chiefs of Staff will have reportedly had to step into the breach and invalidate Presidential orders to launch nuclear missiles. The similarities of the accusation for President Trump once in office to start wars, infuriate adversaries and allies alike and threaten the future existence of the world through madly wild and careless use of nuclear weapons as a threat and actually attempting to launch nuclear missiles to be similar but even more over the top than the predictions made about Ronald Reagan after he won the election and both before and while he was in office. The madness the mainstream media is predicting can only be found in rare old movie plots where somebody goes off their rocker and orders nuclear weapons use such as in the movies “Failsafe” and “Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.” The ever more hyped predictions of doom are only exceeded by the forlorn lamentations over the fact that President Obama is not permitted to continue in office and remold the United States as had the nearly four terms of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. These discussions almost universally then diverge into discussions of how had President Obama run against Donald Trump how Barack Obama would have won in the largest and most humiliating landslide even beyond President Reagan. Some even add how had Bernie Sanders won the primaries, then he too would have cleaned Donald Trump’s clock easily gliding to victory. And then we get the Russians stole the election for Donald Trump and from there we find ourselves back in the Donald Trump will simply be the puppet of Vladimir Putin and he will be the Manchurian Candidate preprogrammed by Russian hackers to do Putin’s bidding. Those Russian hackers are good if they can reprogram people wirelessly, or is it Donald Trump is a Russian built android sent to run the United States for their needs? That is about the only stories not found in the mainstream media, yet.

Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

 

With all this, there will be wild speculation on how the world and the nation of the United States will be dependent upon Congress, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and just about every proper-thinking American working tirelessly to protect the nation from the inevitable debacles which will be coming from the White House and raining ruin everywhere if not checked. This presumed future is then compared with the glory which was President Obama who for eight long and challenging years arduously and tirelessly worked to prevent the economic collapse of the world (or was it universe) and prevent ever more wars and so gloriously earned that Nobel Peace Prize and was worthy of so many more honors. We are forewarned how we will be shell-shocked by the bald faced incompetence of the incoming President and how his Cabinet will resemble a three ring circus after the initial appointees realize that President Trump is merely using them as window dressing and targets on which to place the blame when President Trump’s harebrained ideas explode on contact with reality. I guess that hope that things would return to normal with the United States playing a steadying role in the world are simply pipe-dreams as the media has explained in gruesome details. The United States presumably is about to crash and burn under President Trump as compared to the glorious years under President Obama’s tutelage.

 

All this pessimism demands we give our idea as to what is coming after January 20, 2017. Unfortunately, the initial actions of a Trump Presidency are dependent upon what outgoing President Obama does in the next days leading up to noon of Inauguration Day. We really do mean up until noon on that day and perhaps past if the ceremony takes place minutes late as is usually the case. Should President Obama take a Paris conference accord proposal for the establishment and invention of an Arab state called Palestine carved from the lands legally belonging to Israel and without Israeli consent and signature on a treaty, then President Trump will have a difficult task facing him immediately after taking office. Should President Obama have his co-conspirators bring a Chapter Seven Resolution declaring Palestine a reality with full Statehood recognized by the UNSC with the Green Line (the 1949 Armistice Line between Jordan and Israel demarking the front lines and the Israeli lands illegally occupied by Jordan) then President Trump will need coordinate with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu a response and course of action to overturn the decision. This will be possible and an eventuality as such a resolution, Chapter Seven or any other manner of resolution, is illegal as it breaks the United Nations Charter Article 80 which recognized all the demarcations and wordings of the Mandate System and all other resolutions in effect from the League of Nations. This makes the Jordan River the eastern border of the Jewish State of Israel. That is the international law recognizing the Israeli eastern border and there is no mention whatsoever of any Arab entity or Nation west of the Jordan River. This was also the reason behind an Egyptian Justice who sat on the International Court of Justice when the UNGA requested a ruling on the Security Barrier Israel had erected to prevent further suicide bombers and other terrorism. The barrier accomplished much of what it was intended to accomplish and the ICJ did not demand it be removed. As noted yesterday, the Honorable Justice El Araby warned the UNGA and others that filing further ran some risks, as he stated,

 

“The international legal status of the Palestinian Territory (paras. 70-71 of the Advisory Opinion), in my view, merits more comprehensive treatment. A historical survey is relevant to the question posed by the General Assembly, for it serves as the background to understanding the legal status of the Palestinian Territory on the one hand and underlines the special and continuing responsibility of the General Assembly on the other. This may appear as academic, without relevance to the present events. The present is however determined by the accumulation of past events and no reasonable and fair concern for the future can possibly disregard a firm grasp of past events. In particular, when on more than one occasion, the rule of law was consistently side-stepped. The point of departure, or one can say in legal jargon, the critical date, is the League of Nations Mandate which was entrusted to Great Britain.”

 

Beyond this, President Trump has already indicated he will work towards repeal of UNSC Resolution 2334 recently passed under Chapter Six due to the United States efforts behind the scenes and their blatant determination to injure Israel punishing her because she refused to roll over and die when demanded to do so by President Obama and his team during the Iran farce of negotiations on the Iranian nuclear program and their drive for nuclear weapons parity with the United States or, at the least, Israel as well as only complying with most but not every demand for concessions to the Palestinian Authority (PA) while the PA simply sent more requests for concessions for the President and State Department to draw out of Israel. This was payback for the lack of subservient compliance with edicts from upon high, or at least the second floor of the White House.

 

Then there are the promises made by candidate Trump which a President Trump will need to deliver. The first and biggest is tax reform. Trump made some bold statements for initiatives for tax reform. His plans realize that all taxes are actually paid by the people and that such taxes as sales tax and taxes on businesses and industry are simply folded into the price of products which serves two counterproductive results, first the increased price makes United States products priced from the world market where if the prices were more competitive with the other nations, especially those which subsidize their industries generously making United States products unaffordable by comparison and second the higher price hurts the middle and low income people the most as they are paying the taxes and fees. Removing taxes on industry and businesses will make for lower prices on products and slower rate of inflation as sales beyond the border will increase simply due to this one tax being eliminated thus allowing for increased production to meet the new demand which will provide more jobs and eventually rising wages as employment reaches higher percentages as there will be increasing demands for workers. Second the simplification of the income tax levels making them generally lower across all salary ranges and the reduction of claimable deductions will make taxes more fair as with fewer deductions the wealthy will have fewer shelters from income taxes and thus will be paying tax on greater percentages of their income though the lower rate will make this reality less painful for most. Finally, lowering Capital Gains taxes will result in more fluidity in the investment business which will allow the movement of investments to more promising industries and will subsidize innovations. The resetting of Capital Gains such that it does not penalize investors moving funds from one investment to another facilitates start-up companies as there will be more funds available from which to get seed monies invested. Hopefully the congress will resist any urges for recalcitrance and the Republican majorities can show spine and certitude of their convictions and enact the changes to the tax codes and systems.

 

Repeal of Obamacare will be another big challenge as there are some vested interests and too many of those sit in congress. Obamacare grants power over healthcare and its being provided to the people and despite the refusal of Democrats to admit there are established committees which will decide when a person is no longer a viable contribution to society and thus will receive only the most marginal of healthcare and will not receive any life prolonging treatments which are expensive as such high priced care is out of the question. These health panels are not referred to as death panels but that is one of the functions they provide. Still, there are some provisions of the Affordable Care and Patient Protection Act (ACPPA) such as the provision which makes denial of insurance due to preexisting conditions is liked by most as the provision for retaining children under their parents’ insurance through age twenty-six appeals to young adults as well as parent with children in college or graduate school seeking advanced degrees. On the other hand, insurance companies are finding the ACPPA to be a disaster and many are pulling from providing insurance under the law. What need be is return much of the pricing of insurance and the setting of levels of coverage by different plans instead of a one size out of three or four is all you get. The ACPPA also demands certain items be provided coverage and everyone must include such items in their plans. Prenatal care is no more universally necessary as people over sixty have little use for prenatal care just as people who will be having children usually do not need assisted living coverage. Allowing for the tailoring of insurance plans to fit the individual would allow for greater coverage at reasonable prices. All that is actually required for near universal coverage would be a few simple requirements. First and of great importance is all plans covering hospital care past two or three days of being hospitalized with full coverage costing additionally, what used to be called major medical care while leaving routine care payments the responsibility of the patient, prescription drug minimal plan which would cover the price of medications after a minimum is cleared or a set percentage and priced accordingly, and there have to be other such items which would represent minimal coverage or the base plan. Then insurance companies can offer different plans or even a cafeteria style insuring where you choose exactly the parts you desire with price breaks for say every five items granting a percentage in savings. The final item is portability, the ability to take your health insurance across state lines, from one job to the next and other similar challenges. By having employers provide a healthcare bonus if they desire rather than their providing their idea of a great plan for their employees, this too would bring down the general cost of health insurance and could also slow the increases in healthcare costs.

 

This should be sufficient start of ideas to chew upon. Our final item is about how the atmosphere and entire mood of the media has changed since the election. First we have the panicking over the rise in “fake news stories” which have appeared of late. What is most amazing about the “fake news stories” is that many are carried by the mainstream media and not alternative media as much. Another anomaly is that much of the “fake news stories” come from leftist sources and are amplified as they spread across platforms and blogs take these “fake news stories” as being real news and thus making themselves less credible for using what they thought was actual vetted news as they found it in the New York Times, Salon or other such news sources. The uproar over “fake news stories” coming from the media was confusing until we found that there have been a number of nations, the United States and Germany, which have set in place a Department of Information which is designated the ultimate source for real news and for debunking “fake news stories” printed and placed before the public. We gave this deeper coverage in a recent article titled, “The Emergence of Departments of Official Government Truths”. There has also been a resurgence, a rediscovery even, in the fact that there are homeless people and greater care for our mentally challenged citizens who all too many are left out on the streets. Crime rates have become an issue as has any even hint of hate crimes. The greatest fake news and hate crime combination has been the Great Hijab Crime Wave we discussed where a series of Trump supporters attacking, taunting or otherwise belittling and intimidating young college women on university campuses who were wearing a hijab which apparently caused these white males to turn into vicious and demanding monsters. All of the stories proved to be unsubstantiated and were retracted by the very women who brought them forward. Then there are all manner of societal ills which we have not seen coverage of for the past eight years which are creeping back into the new and we can expect the floodgates to fly open on January 20, 2017 in such ferocity that these reports will seem to be as manufactured as the “fake news stories” have struck. Hold on, it is going to be a wild ride going forward, but let us hope we actually do go forward and not flying off into some dark hidden side track which leads to someplace nobody knows for sure.

World Demands to Make Peace on Israel’s Grave

 

Russia has been pressing since this past summer to host a meeting between Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu but the specifics have proven difficult at best. President Obama and his Secretaries of State Hillary Clinton and John Kerry have demanded their right to force a peace on Israel with borders which all but guarantee the next Arab Israeli war using the Hamas tactic of rockets fired over the border and then claiming Israel started the war when they finally attack to end the destruction. The United Nations and its various Agencies and Commissions as well as its NGO’s (Non-governmental Organizations) which many are financed almost completely by some varied combination of the European Union, the United Nations, European governments, the United States, George Soros and other actors, and leading from among the European countries who wish to force Israel to surrender to any and all Arab demands now have their champion in the French who are planning on holding their second conference to solve “the peace process” which has stalled. The reason for the quotation marks around the peace process is due to the fact that the world has decided when one says peace process they are referring to the only peace process which must be forced forward even if the sole means of doing so is to all but destroy Israel and redivided Jerusalem such that all the ancient Jewish holy sites and half the synagogues are placed east of the divide and beyond the reach of Israelis and Western Jews and Christians and allows for these places to be once again destroyed by their Muslim overlords. Even South Africa, amongst other nations with few if any problems of their own have also chimed in demanding that Israel make concessions for peace.

Further, recently we had the great Security Council debacle where United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 2334 was brought forth for considerations by Malaysia, New Zealand, Senegal and Venezuela; all paragons of virtue and oh so holy that they are to be knighted for their bravery and stalwart stand for international justice, bringing this Israel damning, precedent setting, United Nations Charter Article 80 negating, UNSC Res 242 negating alternative to all former agreements and condemnation of Israel as the most grievous offender of all the world holds precious under laws and opinion to be made vulnerable to potential sanction but by individual nations at their own volition but not directly because of this resolution. UNSC Resolution 2334 is a Chapter 6 resolution which is nonbinding and unenforceable. This was a great amount of noise and bluster bursting upon the universal stage with great winds and fury signifying absolutely nothing more than President Obama’s vengeance wrought on Benyamin Netanyahu and a great scream from out the White House reaching all the way to the heart of Jerusalem reaching Netanyahu’s ears claiming, “You were the Jew boy who stole the thunder behind my Nobel Peace Prize by refusing my demands you simply give up your little worthless nation to the Palestinians as I demanded.” This anguished spite reached Jerusalem, barely, as Barack Hussein Obama was merely aiming for Tel Aviv as he personally does not accept that Jerusalem could ever have been the capital city of Israel as the church Jeremiah Wright pastored, whose bible likely did not include Jerusalem as the capital city of King David and King Solomon of Biblical Israel and likely gave the Jews the holy back of the Reverend Wright recognized deity’s hand as a rebuke for its Jewishness.

 

The next threat is so obvious in from whence it will originate and from there where it aims to proceed and whose hand is stirring this pot with the greatest vigor. The threat will emerge, if the stirrer’s dreams are met, from the Paris conference of European Foreign Ministers and groups of Arab representatives will meet with the intended result being the recommendations for what would be the proper border for a recognized Palestine as a new Arab state carved from the body of the Jewish State as recognized by Article 80 of the UN Charter. An agreement was reached last month during a low key, under the radar meeting, where France’s Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault, French President François Hollande, United States Secretary of State John Kerry met, taking their marching orders for defining this new nation from its future dictator Mahmoud Abbas, in advance of the conference, just to assure that all his demands and other issues which includes the world must continue financing the PA and its graft engine for as long as a single Jew remains between the eastern shores of the Mediterranean Sea and Jordan before the will PA to even consider any agreement. This coming conference was originally set for late December but was rescheduled finalizing a date of January 15, 2017. This date is so interesting as the UNSC has decided to schedule a meeting for January 18, 2017, presumably the issues include the situation in Mali, where non-State actors were making the implementation of the peace agreement difficult; implementation of the Iran nuclear deal; Somalia and other situations of concern in Africa, also things discussed with the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) and other regional partners; and perhaps some special time working on enacting any conclusion made in Paris in the preceding few days, who knows what might make the deadline that day. It cannot be simple coincidence that all these meetings are planned immediately before Inauguration Day as none of these leftist leaders would wish to assist Barack Hussein Obama burn down even more of the world on his way out the door.

 

United State Aircraft Carrier

United State Aircraft Carrier

 

Now for the final item which pertains to President Obama and his recent housekeeping before having the keys to the kingdom handed on to Donald Trump, a.k.a. the evil one. The United States Navy ranking officers have made excuses and tried to claim that there is nothing strange that the United States, for the first time since possibly 2000 or maybe since world War II, has absolutely no aircraft carriers deployed anywhere in the oceans and seas of the world, they are all at their home ports. The United States depends on these floating airfields and divisions or wings of air power to enforce policy and to put down those nasty little fires which crop up from time to time. What is wonderful is that just the arrival of an air craft carrier group into a troubled area and the trouble usually simmers to a halt without the order of a single sortie against any targets. Sometimes all that is required is an overflight of American air power to close the lid on some roiling pot of trouble. What having all the aircraft carriers in their home ports precludes many options and with the troubles in the Middle East and North Africa plus the troubles in the South China Sea and the fact that both Russia and China have aircraft carriers deployed, the lack of such by the United States has muted much of American power in the world. The fact that this may have been the situation when George W. Bush came to power after William Jefferson Clinton makes this all the more damning as it makes things appear as Democrat Presidents attempt to hamper and handicap incoming Presidents should they be of the wrong party, be Republicans. I hope such is not the case but appearances can be damning. Fortunately, the article above tells that there will be two aircraft carriers scheduled to sail in the near future, let the world hope they will also signal the return of the America which stands firm in the world for justice and freedom; such will be welcome here at BTC. Of course the fact that much of Donald Trump’s rhetoric was that of an isolationist which might mean that we may not see any return of the United States on the world’s stage and the world will need to continue soldiering on as best as we can without their assistance. If so, so be it, we will do and we will hear from the only source that counts, and that source does not sit in any Earthly capital city.

Trump Spawned Psychosis

 

President elect Donald Trump has spawned a psychosis that even the greatest Freudian psychologist would be completely unable to treat no matter their former experiences. This disease has not been witnessed since Ronald Reagan was President elect and throughout his eight years in office. Even then the disease may not have been anywhere near as wide spread or have so completely disabled and discombobulated so many and so severely. Perhaps the lack of social media such as Twitter and Facebook are the reason that these afflicted have become so noticeable while likely more ignored and easily cast aside during the Presidency of Ronald Reagan. The reality is that the presence of these malcontents who believe that simply because over 60% of California voters, mostly from the main urban environments, cast for Hillary Clinton that the remainder of the nation must be forced to place her into the White House as California and its leftist voters have never made a mess of anything. California is a model in how to manage finances and water conservation and distribution. They have such a deficit that it is only rivaled by the debt run up by President Obama, or by all the administrations before him, and their lawns in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, San Jose and Sacramento and the flowers decorating the mall before the capital building are watered and pressed to bloom as often as they are able never lacking for moisture while on the other side of the mountain ridge where the farmer used to produce the finest fruits and vegetables and other produce as well as many of the finest vineyards of the great California wineries, the other main economic powers beyond Silicon Valley, are all turned a rustic brown for lack of irrigation water. That is the economic wisdom that these people believe would best serve the United States, everything to the urban jungles and let the rest rust and rot without moisture or life-giving funding as long as the urban megalopolises remain funded and beautified. What could possible go wrong under their leadership?

 

These are the people now screaming that since the election of Donald Trump that hate crimes have erupted on campuses across the nation. These supposed hate crimes have one after another been revealed to have been hoaxes often perpetrated by those who first filed the complaint with the police. Further proof of the fascism on the way has been the charging of these hoaxers with filing false police reports for, wait for it, filing false police reports when making their report of their false crimes. These miscreants were to be celebrated for their bravery and great efforts to expose the reality of the hate that we can expect from a Trump Presidency and should be heralded as heroes of the people and not charged as common criminals. Perhaps they have a point as these are not common criminals, they are psychotic people with delusions and an inability to handle reality so they must invent their own and then fulfill their wildest vision of what must be a society of evil and by committing the exact evils they claim are rampant, they are proving the truth of the rampant criminality of Trump supporters who, by the way, are not committing any of these perceived crime waves of hatred.

 

Reality can often be difficult to accept and deal with when you lose an election. Yes, we already discussed the popular vote and how it came about. But what about the fact, fact we emphasize, that the Democrat Senatorial winners received more votes than the Republican Senatorial candidates. Well, let’s see if there might be a rational reason such as both California and New York elected Senators and Texas had none, but why would the most populous solid Republican state not electing any Senator and the two largest solid democrat states both did couldn’t have influenced that statistic, no possibility there at all. But all the protests and false crime reports are all benign compared to the feared possibility that some of the anti-Trump fanatics might turn violent, and that is exactly what has happened in Chicago.

 

Four self-identified Chicago #BlackLivesMatter supporters have been arrested in connection of the kidnapping, holding for twenty-four to possibly forty-eight hours and extensive torture of a white mentally disabled man while screaming obscenities interspersed with President elect Trump’s name all while streaming it live on Facebook. Read the particulars as reported by FOX 32 NEWS Chicago. This was similar to what was predicted would be the result of a Trump loss and his supporters taking out their frustrations. Some predicted this would be a daily activity should the worst of all things happen, a Trump victory. It was the expectation of such hateful acts by Trump supporters in celebration of such as they dreamed of revenge by Trump. The lack of such actual attacks or even a hint of racism run rampant that many of the false crime reports and faked crime perpetrators claimed had infuriated them and drove them to prove that such crimes existed by making their reports and actual fake crimes. This Chicago horror was no such fake crime as reported the police found the victim walking traumatized and had to take him to the hospital for treatment. Let us all pray that this will be the last of such behavior, both the horror show from Chicago and the fake crimes from numerous locations. There has been one remarkable similarity in the majority of the fake crimes; they occurred on or near major college campuses.

 

Victim in Chicago Torture Case

Victim in Chicago Torture Case

 

When a win by Hillary Clinton was assured of victory, the day before Election Day, the left was lecturing Trump supporters to learn to live with disappointment. Then, as soon as the election results were finalized, there were the screams of vote tampering, Russian hacking and all sorts of conspiracy theories. The turnaround was so fast and furious it could have been a Hollywood plot line except nobody would have accepted it as it was too ridiculous even for a movie. Life has a way of outdoing fantasy at times and this election cycle was filled with just such surprises. Everything predicted before the election turned out to be absolutely valid except one would need to exchange Trump for Clinton and Hillary supporters for Donald supporters. What is interesting is the lack of media hyperventilating and throwing fits over the false crime reports and the horrific tragedy from the four self-professed #BlackLivesMatter supporters in Chicago and their unforgivable torture of a mentally challenged man simply because they saw him as a Trump supporter. Had any such travesties been performed by Trump supporters after a Clinton victory the media would never have allowed the public to hear the end of it. Instead, we have near silence about the crimes from the left side of the political spectrum. At the very least the media could try and do even the smallest piece of honest reporting to try and dispel the obvious bias in the media. How can the United States remain a vibrant, free and open democratic Constitutional republic if the public is denied honest media reporting? The reason for the First Amendment was to support all sides being heard in the public forum and instead the United States has a nearly universally left leaning media and political correctness to silence conservatives on college campuses and wherever else such censoring is applied. Such threatens the very fabric which made the United States the great United States Republic that it presumably still is. Perhaps some time healing and introspection will help return honesty, though it may already be too late.
