Wolf Blitzers Spin

There was a time when Wolf Blitzer told the news. He would go to the news and report what he found and saw. Sadly this is no longer the case. Now he is a spin doctor, the number one spin doctor for CNN, but still, just spin doctor. He doesn’t report the news any more, he changes it to fit his narrative. He is either spinning it because he wants to, or because he is told to, but spin it he does. Here are two examples that prove his personal distortion of the real news.

First, for the last eight months, we have been being fed a spin on the facts that had President Trump, colluding with Russians. The media has assumed that Russia must have influenced the election to favor Trump. The Russian investigation, while looking for wrongdoings by Trump or his team, has taken a turn to expose some wrongdoing by the previous administration, Hillary Clinton and the FBI itself.

How did President Trump change the subject or direction of the investigation? He can’t and Wolf knows damn well that it is Congress that is pushing for investigations into Hillary and the Clinton Foundation. Any of the investigations must look at any credible improper or illegal activity. Your headline that says :White house moves to discredit russia probe, Trump foes” Is just is plain fake news. To imply that President Trump is such a magician that he can misdirect FBI investigations and Congressional hearings by changing the subject, is deceitful and inciting. Wolf, this make you look stupid. You should report what actually happened, not a made up scheme that only the stupidest of your viewers will believe.

Wolf immediately went into a statement that blamed President Trump for keeping some documents under wraps.

Releasing these documents was put off by Ex-President Obama until today. President Trump had to either officially put this off or release the documents. He chose to release them. They were not ready to be released. The FBI wants to redact certain pages and parts, in the name of national security.

Trump said: “I am ordering today that the veil finally be lifted. At the same time, executive departments and agencies have proposed to me that certain information should continue to be redacted because of national security, law enforcement, and foreign affairs concerns. I have no choice — today — but to accept those redactions rather than allow potentially irreversible harm to our nation’s security.”

“Mr. Trump, who has indulged in his own wild speculation about the sensational killing, had expressed eagerness to finally open the last of the government files, only to run into a last-minute campaign by intelligence agencies to redact certain documents. Grudgingly, he gave the agencies until April 26 to go through the remaining papers again and make their case.”

Why were they not ready since they had so much time to prepare? Could it be that the FBI didn’t want the documents to ever be made public?

President Trump made a grand move to become more transparent with the American people and Wolf Blitzer took a cheap shot at him by insinuating that it was President Trump that was hiding something, not the past administrations.

 

I Keep my Promises!

My word is my bond. I believe in keeping your word. If I say I will do something I do it. If I cannot do something I promised, I keep trying. I do not need to be told to keep trying, I keep trying because of what is inside of me.

The biggest deals I ever made in business were made with a look in the eye and a handshake. I don’t need a paper to tell me what is expected of me. I will meet expectations and more. If you are not going above and beyond the terms of your deal, then maybe you need to rethink the reason you make deals in the first place.

President Trump makes deals. A lot has been said about him reneging on deals. I would suggest that in no dealings with Donald Trump, if you went above and beyond, that you would have had a problem. I would hate to have been one of the contractors that didn’t finish or said they couldn’t and were not trying.

President Trump has proven he is a man of his word by fulfilling all his campaign promises. He has done more than any politician I have ever voted for President. He has been working tirelessly like the energizer bunny for the people in order to make America great again.

Nazis and Antifa

I first saw this on Facebook on my friend Joey Cook’s page. I thought it somewhat childish, but as I studied it, the basic questions are worth answering if we include Patriots.

  • What is your political goal?
  • When is violence acceptable?
  • What should a country do with minorities?
  • Is free speech a good thing?
  • What should a country do with dissenters?
  • Is Jews a question?
  • Are the colors of the flags important enough to be in this study?

 

I’m for Immigration

I am definitely a supporter of immigration. My father’s father came to America from Sicily. He lived in the Italian section of Erie, PA. He married my grandmother while she was living in the Polish section of Erie. She was from Czechoslovakia.  My grandparents on my mom’s side came from Germany. They settled in Renovo PA. Almost everyone in Renovo was Pennsylvania Dutch (Pennsilfaanisch Deitsch). Almost all immigrants settled in communities connected to their home country, learned about America, and then went off into the country as Americans. The initial buffer was not to separate them and hold them back to old traditions, instead it was more of a jump off point after getting acclimated to the new world. Many cultures still use this method of acclimation.

 

It’s not immigration that I’m against, it’s illegal immigration that I oppose. The illegal immigrants do not get any vetting at all. We do not know who they are, or why they came. We do not know if they even plan to become Americans!  While other good law abiding people wait in line for their turn at Immigration, these people cut in front and crash through without care for law and order.  This causes honest, good, hard working people to wait longer and longer for their turn through our gates. They fence jumpers have come here in such great numbers that they flaunt the immigration rules and regulations, believing that if they are deported, they will just cross over again. They 
are not leaving the place they settled into, to go out as Americans, they are staying or moving to other isolated communities that speak their language and follow their traditions. They are not interested in changing themselves to fit in, instead, they strive to change America to suit them.

If this influx of people were the Chinese instead of Mexicans, that is, if the Chinese were just pouring into our country, ignoring all the rules of entry into the United States. If they were forming communities of their own and following their own rules. If they were not becoming Americans and instead were just preparing their surrounding for more Chinese. We would call this an invasion! And that’s exactly what it would be!

Be aware that there are enough Chinese people to do this and completely take over the United States. If one half of the Chinese people came to America, they would outnumber us two to one. Let’s hope we fix our immigration laws and shore up our borders before the chinese realize that they can take over our country, without firing a shot, just by voting democrat.

Note: There are about the same number of Muslims as Chinese.

When does Snopes.com lose credibility?

I have read recently that Snopes.com is politically motivated. Who checks the fact checkers? How will we ever get to the truth if the fact checkers are politically motivated? If the liberal owner of Facebook, appoints a liberal fact checker like snopes.com to be the arbiters to determine “fake News”, then what do we do when we find out that they may have been lying to us all along?

If snopes.com spins the truth like CNN, what am I to do when a friend posts a meme like this?

Well I checked snopes.com before I commented on this post by my friend John. Snopes.com said it was “MOSTLY FALSE”

The website said

“WHAT’S TRUE” “The 15th Amendment was predominantly supported by Republicans in 1869 and rejected by Democrats.”

“WHAT’S FALSE” “Rep. Elijah Cummings explicitly claimed otherwise in his 2016 DNC Speech.”

Although you should read and watch the whole speech to see that it is not out of context, I will highlight the text snoops.com wrote for their reason to claim he did not specifically claim that the Democratic party was responsible for giving black voters the right to vote.

 

Elijah Cummings: It was our Democratic party that pushed open the opportunities for me and millions of children across this great country. It was our party that fought for head start and good schools. And made college affordable and championed affirmative actions and school desegregation, that passed Social Security and Medicare, that

fought for veterans back home, that fought for the rights of workers and made the dream of home ownership possible for millions of american families. Yes, it still is our Democratic party. Civil rights and voting rights — and voting rights.

As we democrats — it is we Democrats who fully understand when you take away a person’s right to vote, you take away their ability to shape their own destiny. And it was and it is our democratic party that fights for women’s rights, gay rights, the LGBTQ rights. Our party understands that black lives matter.

Why did snopes.com remove two key words? “that championed” then say he didn’t explicitly make the claim?

It seems to me he did claim the Democratic Party championed the voting rights of black voters and possibly women’s voting rights as they would be the ones that would need “championing”.

I’m a Patriot

I am very proud of this and I give you permission to spread it near and far. 

Some of you don’t even know what being a patriot means. I am only sure of what it means to me.

  • I pledge allegiance to the flag.
  • I honor our traditions and customs.
  • I honor our flag and the people that died fighting for it.
  • I honor our National Anthem and the story of our first flag.
  • I honor the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

We have a great country, the envy of the world, and we should all work towards making it better. Our government has a unique system of checks and balances. We have a system to change all rules and laws. Our Justice system is also designed to promote change.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keep off my lawn!

For some unknown reason, I woke up one morning and suddenly gave a crap about my lawn. This is a metaphor of course and it symbolizes that I would now like to present a view of myself that a passersby might see and hopefully enjoy.  Just because you see a nice lawn, does not mean that you can stop and enjoy it for yourself like having a picnic, and certainly it does not make for a place to take a dump. You must just see it and continue down the road, hence, Keep Off My Lawn!
