When Hitler rose to power in Germany, one of his first targets was the press. Once HItler knew there would be no more criticism coming from the press, he was on his way to becoming a dictator. Every dictator understands the power of a free press.

 

 


Still stuck back in the pre-war days in Hitler's Germany? 

 

How has Trump hindered the media from publishing what they want?

As always it is difficult to figure out what you are talking about. But let me see if I can decode - are you claiming that the article did say - US Senate Statement Asserts Once Again - Trump is Unfit for Office?

 

Or are "ignoblers" and "hee-hee" the extent of your point?


One needs a magic decoder ring to decipher his/her posts.

US Senate Statement Asserts Once Again - Trump is Unfit for Office

 

 

The Senate unanimously passed a resolution Thursday confirming that “the press is not the enemy of the people.”

 

Introduced by three Democrats Brian Schatz (Hawaii), Richard Blumental (Conn.) and Chuck Schumer (N.Y.), the resolution stemmed from a move led by the Boston Globe that saw more than 350 news organizations write editorials in support of press freedom.

 

The resolution is mostly symbolic and was passed by a voice vote with no senators objecting, the Boston Globe reported.

 

President Donald Trump has consistently denigrated the media, calling it the “enemy of the people.” He also retweeted a video of supporters at a recent Trump rally chanting “CNN sucks.”

 

“We can’t let statements by the president declaring the press is the enemy of the people go unchallenged,” Schatz said. 

 

“Both parties complain about the media but who would argue with Thomas Jefferson who wrote that ‘our liberty depends on the freedom of the press and that cannot be limited without being lost.’”

In an interview with ABC News, Der Trumper was asked why he attacks the media, and his answer: "So when they report terrible things about me, nobody will believe them."

This marks the highpoint in Der Trumper's veracity - he did not even attempt to say the terrible things were not true, only that he didn't want people to believe them.

 

Do you have a point there or are you just in a bad mood again?

Please don't tell us you're suddenly worried about making stuff up? *dying laughing*


What do you find funny in the dishonesty of someone making stuff up in a supposedly honest discussion??


rk, you seldom discuss anything. Instead you just troll against any discussion that exposes the vile nature of Trump and the insipid racism of Republicans.

 

And anyone who seriously posts that the Democratic Party is trying to replace Capitalism with Socialism or end the Presidency cannot seriously wonder why someone would find your objection to "making stuff up" hillarious.


But is that not definition of the Progressive Movement? And do you not think that the government owns all money and decides who gets what?

 

And - what is this "vile racism" you see??

I know the “why.” He’s narcissistic and that blinds him. He also seems to be in a state of mental decline. Dementia perhaps. So I think he’s being manipulated by people who know how to play narcissists. And their agenda is to stave off whites becoming the minority as long as possible by enacting policies and laws that disproportionately hurt immigrants most of all, but also other people of color, as well as religious minorities, and LGTBQ. This administration mirrors the very bottom of the GOP barrel that cares only to support Constitutional rights for wealthy white Christian males and people who benefit from their staying in power.

I see you are one that is following Trump so that would make you and others "Trump Followers". That is a good thing everyone should be following what are leaders are doing and why...I question if you follow the why...it seems that you and your fellow left wing Trump hatters are blind to the why...posts indicate that.

Wake up and be thankful for the good things ...be happy!

But  of  course Rk  the Russian medding in our elections never happened.


If you read the Huff item you will see that it isn't there. And - what has that to do with the Russians. Are you having a focus problem again today??
