The New York Times and Washington Post used to be fair and objective newspapers. Now they are not much more than enforced ideologies of the Left. They aren’t reporting news; they are telling you what they want you to believe. There’s a difference. Ditto the major network news agencies ABC, NBC, and CBS.
Trouble is more and more people are waking up to this reality and deception. It’s not all that hard to detect. Just listen for the underlying opinion in whatever is being spoon fed to you. If you listen for it, you will discover just how severely opinionated this “news” really is. CNN is just the flagrant example of all of this, as they don’t even bother to try to conceal how opinionated they are. But all of this established media is of the same stripe.
People who are the most gullible with this left-wing media are the ones who have the most severe reaction when they finally get red pilled.
The racism today is against whites.
The ORAC value of clove powder is off the chart, but I haven’t been able to figure out how to incorporate it into my diet, as the taste is not very appetizing. I suppose I could put it into smoothies.
With all the attention on free radicals, it is surprising to me that more people don’t seek out foods with high ORAC values.
The last thing I eat every day, without fail, is an apple cut in half with both halves sprinkled with cinnamon — another ORAC all star.
What are your ORAC all stars?
Liberals are no longer liberal. They don’t believe in free speech. They are ideologues who are enforcing their ideology.
Ironic that everyone thought tyranny would come from the Right, but instead it is coming from the Left.
The real fascists today are on the Left. If you don’t believe what they believe, they get you fired or blacklisted. Just like McCarthyism, only from the Left this time around.
Back in the late 60s and early 70s — when the Cold War was really hot and very threatening — Nixon was faced with two giant communist countries forming a very intimidating ideological alliance against the United States. He did a very smart and diplomatic but unexpected thing by broaching a thaw with communist China, and actually went to China to cement the new relationship. The obvious benefit was that communist China would be less of an ally to the then Soviet Union and more neutral in its dealings with the United States.
We face the same potential alliance between Russia and China today that Nixon faced, even though Russia is no longer communist and so the two countries are not all that ideologically compatible. But with the relentless bad mouthing that the American press has voiced toward Russia, as well as the State Department’s endless negative tactics toward Putin’s Russia, we have done the reverse of what Nixon did, and actually driven Russia into the welcoming arms of China — the two countries have actually participated in joint strategic games, and it goes without saying who their enemy is. Our rigidly hostile attitude toward Russia is responsible for all of this.
What I think the United States should do is take a page out of Nixon’s playbook, and try to splinter this alliance or at a minimum neutralize one of the two countries. But instead of China — still a communist country, one with a very domineering economy, and, in my mind, the greater long-term threat to the United States — we should rather approach Russia with a new and welcoming relationship.
The truth is that the United States and Russia have very few areas in the world where we are in direct conflict with one another — perhaps in the Arctic region, but that’s about it. And Russia is a Christian country with the same issue of Islamic terrorism that we face. It is also an underdeveloped country, but a huge one with tremendous natural resources yet to be fully exploited.
Russia is also a country loaded with nuclear missiles aimed at the United States. Is it really in our interest to keep poking the Russians in the eye when this nuclear threat hangs over our heads? I think not. A more cordial relationship with Russia would go a long way toward safeguarding our nation against annihilation. Improved relations with Russia could push back the Doomsday Clock a good half hour, if not even more.
That American media is always playing the Russia bogeyman card is no reason why we shouldn’t be doing a smart diplomatic play if it would clearly be in our national interest. Nixon did it; why can’t we?
I made a campaign contribution to the Trump campaign. Wasn’t much money but it was a first for me — I’ve never contributed any money before to any politician. Never.
I like some of Trump’s policies but not all of them, but I’m definitely frightened by what I see among the Democrats — no borders, soft on crime, free everything, socialism, anti-free speech. The next time we elect a Democrat as president will be perilous for the country, for Democrats have turned into ideologues with no common sense.
2020 is going to be an intense year in the US. If you think 2016 was raucous, you haven’t seen anything yet. I wonder if the intensity is going to cause violence and perhaps even assassination attempts by people who have been driven over the edge. Wouldn’t surprise me at all.
But first the Democratic candidates will tear into each other.
