Almost everything you are being told to believe by the mainstream media is a lie.
The legacy media has long since chosen sides and will brazenly cover up anything that could reflect poorly on Democrats, yet will assiduously traffic in any and all innuendo, hearsay, and slander that they feel will harm Republicans/conservatives/Trump supporters. They gleefully promulgate prevarication in their unending quest to damage Democrats’ political opponents.
Hatred-addled late night television hosts compete to see who can spout the most ignorant inanities. Colleges and universities no longer care about providing their students a well-rounded, classical education. They care only of indoctrinating them into the anti-West, anti-capitalist, anti-Christian ideology of multiculturalism and Critical Race Theory, or CRT.
Big, multinational corporations now reflexively parrot the false rot emanating from Big Academia. And Big Tech now silences, stifles and cancels anyone who believes in the founding principles of the United States, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights. Together they have become the Father of Lies. Don’t believe them.
And what are they lying about, you ask? Virtually everything. They claim that if a White person eats, makes or sells a taco, for instance, that it is a form of “cultural appropriation.” No, it means they like tacos. It is a compliment to the culture that originally produced them. It is the same for White people who are fond of blues music. Is it likewise “appropriation” if a Black person wears Levi’s jeans or anyone outside of China utilizes a printing press? Should Johannes Gutenberg be reviled for making improvements on same?
For that matter, should the rest of the world be prohibited from climbing in an airplane, eating at McDonalds
Read the book 1984.
Then read Animal Farm, Fahrenheit 451, Brave new World and Atlas Shrugged.
Thanks for posting link. I did not notice I missed it!
I have a relative who criticizes every conservative idea I have and yet, a few months later will say the exact thing as though it was his idea. It’s not so much what I say, it’s who says it.
You should be grateful. Sounds to me like you are influencing your relative in a good way - and he’s coming to see things as they really are.
Don’t worry that his ego wants to take credit. No matter. He’s coming to see the truth - rejoice in that!
I understand , but when he credits a liberal for positive things Trump did it ticks me off.
Yes, but in America's Fascist police state, what is the alternative and how do we implement it?
“Almost everything you are being told to believe by the mainstream media is a lie.”
Almost everything you are being told to believe by the mainstream media, social media and the Democratic party is a lie.
There, fixed it
The path to freedom, if we must, is first thru the establishment of a new ship of state - by way of forming a new, the Third Continental Congress.

At all times, even in revolution, the construction of our forefathers’ efforts was to ensure lawful process and exercise authority under the rule of law. For example, contrary to the hysteria perpetrated in the “liberal press,” about the militia, the colonial militia were at all times answerable to civilian authority, in a chain of command reaching down from the Continental Congress and down from the Provincial Congresses of the colonies, often times through what were called Committees of Safety.
There is much in our American Heritage, in which we must seek to know and understand the construction of our country and Constitution, so that where we are going, we will ensure that we do so by a lawful process, and always keep upon the path toward our principle objectives: to restore our Constitution and rule of law over government ... instead of embarking upon a sea of rage because of our current unhappiness.
It will take all of our self-discipline, to not wander from the path. The secret of George Washington’s success, according to him, when asked by a correspondent, after the President’s retirement from public office, was this: “...the straight line.”

Sir Winston Churchill, upon the occasion of a visit to an American university after World War II, and feeling the infirmities of his age, was asked to give a speech; but he had to wait out a lengthy introduction.
At the end of this praise, Churchill stood up and approached the podium; and then said, no more than, “Never, never, never, never quit.”

You must not let go of our democratic-republic [principles]. You must not be “rattled.”
The Founding Fathers and Framers set up a structure for a government in waiting, the Continental Congress. During that decade prior to Lexington and Concord, the colonialists absorbed the principles of law, some of which were discussed in the “letters of correspondence.” There is much that the people knew -— enough people -— which is what will be needed if we are to win.

Edmund Burke said, in his March 22, 1775 “Speech on Conciliation With America”:
Permit me, Sir, to add another circumstance in our colonies, which contributes no mean part towards the growth and effect of this untractable spirit. I mean their education. In no country perhaps in the world is the law so general a study...
This study renders men acute, inquisitive, dexterous, prompt in attack, ready in defence, full of resources. In other countries, the people, more simple and of a less mercurial cast, judge of an ill principle in government only by an actual grievance; here they anticipate the evil, and judge of the pressure of the grievance by the badness of the principle. They augur misgovernment at a distance; and snuff the approach of tyranny in every tainted breeze.

The Third Continental Congress
To consist of 2 representatives from each state.
Those 2 (per state) are chosen by the RED CONSERVATIVE COUNTIES of their respective states.
The RED Conservative counties of each state, to have themselves chosen 2 representative - who convene with the other sets of 2 representives at the state level.
*That* state level convention for the purpose of choosing the 2 representives, who then proceed to the meeting of the Third Continental Congress.
Good writing style with great points. The ludicrous hypocrisy of the left is stunning and they are brazen enough to fool and intimidate people. You can’t really argue with leftists and you would be farther off ridiculing them. Many of these people are white progressives. The best line is to use their own words against them. Just say: “that’s so white of you.” Whatever they say, just repeat some variation of “That’s so white of you.” And laugh at them. In fact, white people did dream up this leftist nonsense but don’t get into that with them... let them figure it out.
They form the flat-earth, book-burning, truth-haters club. Not a good look, if they were to peek into a mirror.
