Republicans hate half of the people in America because THOSE people are not paid enough to pay Federal Income Taxes.

Republicans insist climate change is a hoax and for 20 years have prevented any action that might have fixed the problem

Republicans believe Saddam was responsible for 9/11 and was building Nukes, so jrbush was justified in starting his worthless, never-ending War.

Republicans believe tax cuts for the very rich will grow the economy

Republicans believe forcing banks to end "RedLining" caused the mortgage bust.

Republicans believe President Obama was a Kenian and ineligible to be POTUS

Republicans believe people will walk 1000miles with their infants just to get on Welfare in the USA.

Republicans believe having semi-auto weapons makes us safer

 

All those things are FALSE. Reporting the Truth about them upsets Republicans who, like everyone else, dislike having their core beliefs exposed as bigoted LIES.

 

So the GOPerLords in the top 0.01% keep telling theit dupes all the above Republican beliefs are TRUE and the ones saying different are the liars, so when those telling the truth tell the truth about what Republican politicians are doing, their base thinks its just being "hateful", and become outraged the actual factual media is picking on them, and refuse to engage in any actual dialogue concerning the merits of their misguided beliefs.

 

THAT is the problem.

Hopefully there are enough people out there who really know when they do hear Fake News. We must be smart not to believe Fake News, and smart enough to know the difference.

If you really think about some of the Off the Wall stuff coming right from The Donald's mouth you need to really listen, and really HEAR what he is saying. Absorb the words and hear what he says, he does not make any sense.

I have said for a while, The Donald wants No Freedom of the Press just like Putin.

 

The sad part is, his followers they won't realize/ believe how much of his talking is fake news. .

Live For Today, No One is Guaranteed a TOMORROW !

Political Hatred Will Not Let Up Until

Yesterdays Scenario at the Whitehouse when Trump Banned a CNN Reporter from taking her turn as the Pool Reporter at a Whitehouse Rose Garden Event - foreshadows the continuing downward spiral of the Relationship between Americans with differing Political Opinions

 

Of all the Political Hatred that exits within the US Public today the Single Biggest Reason why - we cannot agree on what the FACTS are

 

Few of us understand or have personal access to all the complex events that occur within the US Government every day let alone events around the world that impact the decisions our Government Leaders should be making to protect us and to insure this Democratic Experiment continues to survive

 

Nothing is more critical to the success or failure of the USA then a Free Press - too many Americans do not understand this or take it for Granted

 

Americans cannot make informed decisions and choices without Fact Based Information

 

Our Democracy depends on a Government of the People - By the People and For the People

 

Without a Free Press to shine light on those areas Rank & File Citizens have no vision into - this Country as we know it will disappear

 

Anyone who doubts that statement can simply look at the recent History & status of the Citizens in the Countries around the world where of the Governments have been responsible for all-out assaults on the Press

 

Thailand – Military Coup in 2014 to dispose Democratically Elected President – Jailed all Independent Journalists who criticized Military Junta – demonized the Media and anyone who dares to speak out

 

Turkey – Erdogan – Scapegoats Journalists and Blames them for a Coup attempt in 2016 – branded all the Independent Media as Enemies of the State and blamed a – “Deep State” – Collusion of Political Opponents who are plotting against his Regime

 

Erdogan’s MO includes encouraging loyal Turks to attack Independent Journalists who are spreading Fake News against him

 

Russia – Putin has used the same exact methods to rid himself of any Independent Journalism –

 

Russia used to have at least two major News Media – RT & NTV …………..RT was controlled by Putin - NTV was a survivor from when quasi- democracy eliminated what was the Soviet Union but

 

Putin embarked on a mission to coerce NTV into taking his View of Russian Government as the only view – he attacked NTV Owners with the full force of the Russian government – jailed Journalists and many simply disappeared never to heard from again

 

Bottomline – supporting Trumps attack on the Media by supporting his call to not believe what you actually see and hear with your own eyes and ears – to support his call to physically attack journalists to consider it all Fake News except those from those Journalists who feed you Trumps version of the Truth – creates a environment where Political Hatred is encouraged not eliminated

 

Again, if we cannot even agree on what the Facts are – how are we ever going to decide what the solutions to all our problems should be?
