Tired Of The Lies!

Our country is in a quandary. We have “advanced” to the point where we are so far beyond where the Founding Fathers ever thought we’d end up, that we are off any page of any book by now. And there is one problem that is exacerbating the whole situation more than any other.


When you look at it, the government has been lying to the American people for a very long period of time. I’m not talking just Democrats here, I’m talking the whole government. And the issues that we’ve been lied to about, are numerous. It’s not just one thing. There are a myriad of topics that government “spins” to give us their best view.

When you look at polls, I was amazed to believe that 61% of all Americans believe that government agents helped provoke the January 6th riots at the Capitol. And what that means is basically that most Americans feel that there were elements of the government that were undercover agents that spawned the riot at the Capitol building. The question is why? Were they Trump supporters that were upset over the election results? Were they leftists trying to get something to pin on Trump as he was ready to leave office? No one knows at this point.

Look at the lies Joe Biden has told us. My Lord, if you just take the lies that the guy has told over the last three years since he was running for president, about his own personal life, it’s staggering. Look at the lies that came out of Adam Schiff’s House Intelligence Committee as they discussed behind closed doors impeaching Donald Trump a second time because of the Capitol riots. And what about the former Obama administration officials that lied to the American people saying they had proof that Donald Trump was a “Russian agent”, when they totally changed their tune in testifying before Congress on the subject.

Look at the lies we hear about in the media. How many stories has the three major cable news networks fabricated to get their ideology across, just in the last 10 years? You know, when our country was founded, the media was supposed to be the check on government. They were to be the spotlight that showed where the roaches were, so we could fumigate the place. That’s tough to do when they are lying to you and making up news stories that just aren’t true. Think about the journalists at the New York Times, and Washington Post, as well as CNN and MSNBC that have been fired for lying. I can count ten very easily, and they span Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC. The names are as household as IBM, Microsoft, and McDonalds. And these are the spotlights of truth?

You know, my mother always told me that she could tell when I was lying as a child because I had a white ring around my mouth. I don’t know where she came up with that, but it worked. I realized at a very young age that lying was difficult. It fought the truth, which always seemed to come out. You ended up not just lying once, but you ended up spinning a whole web of deceit to cover the one lie you told. I’ve seen it happen thousands of times. And it’s usually not the first lie that catches the liar, it’s the subsequent mis-truths.

I’ve often said that the breakdown of the family, and the loss of religion in our society has been the root cause of the decline of America, and I still believe that. But one of the large by-products of that are the lies being told. How many times did Nancy Pelosi tell lies about bills that were being debated and passed in the House of Representatives? How many times did she lie about what happened to her husband, Paul, when he got beat up in his own home? Or how many lies were told about his car crash and subsequent DUI? The truth always comes out, and when it does, it’s always worse than if someone had told the truth.

I’m just tired of the lies we are hearing from a government that is supposed to serve and protect us. I can’t count on anyone in government to give me the truth. Hell, they can’t give each other the truth. Did COVID come from a lab in Wuhan or a wet market because of bats? They say they don’t have consensus because they don’t want the truth to be known. The question you have to ask is, why are you covering this up? What is it that you really don’t want us to know? And what will be our reaction up the road when we find out the truth to all of this? Will we accept it because they’re all just politicians? Or will we hold them accountable for their lies. It’s sickening.

How Much Did Biden Influence Midterms?

Well, I will say this, and if you a regular around here, you know I don’t have too many kind words to say about him. But Joe Biden sitting on the sidelines and not helping out much at all (a trip to Florida, one to New Mexico and then spending time in Pennsylvania, which is next door to Delaware) was probably a smart move.

Biden is as toxic as Trump is and their approval rating show it. Both have 56% negative approval numbers so far. Though to be honest, I haven’t checked Trump’s since the midterms, but my hunch is his negatives probably went up. Biden was sidelined for the most part, which was probably a good thing. People like Tim Ryan (who lost in Ohio) didn’t want anything to do with Biden, and I’m sure that didn’t hurt him a bit.

As far as having Joe Biden help you out, I’m not so sure it actually did help out in Pennsylvania, where John Fetterman beat Mehmet Oz. I think Fetterman probably could have and would have beaten Oz without Biden’s help. Maybe Obama helped him out a little bit, but I think Fetterman hanging the “carpetbagger” tag on Oz was the clincher. Pennsylvanians cared more about someone from their own state, rather than someone who wasn’t physically or mentally up to the challenge. I mean, they did after all go for Biden in 2020, right?

I’ve placed a lot of blame on Donald Trump for not choosing the right candidates to endorse, and for not spending as freely in the general elections as he did in the primaries. Both are accurate and correct reasons to place blame at his feet. When you look at Mitch McConnell, who for all of his faults, he ended up throwing about $234 million in the general election, far out-weighing Trump’s paltry $16 million, you can understand that McConnell was a much bigger player.

But as far as Joe Biden went, he did what he was told to do. He stayed on the sidelines, bit his tongue, and didn’t get involved until the last week or two. And, as we saw in 2020, that proves to be a winning strategy. The more this guy is on the campaign trail, the more opportunities he has to open his mouth, the worse he does. I never thought it was a good strategy to hide in the basement, but it worked for him because he was a much better candidate not saying anything than when he spoke. That’s gotta be a first!

I think of the other big factors that occurred in the midterms, and nobody is talking about this, is the media. The media for months had this being a “red wave”. When you start talking like that, so far out, and you point to midterms historically killing the party in power, it dampens the voters desire to get off the couch. That’s exactly what happened here. Abortion and “Democracy’s last breath” brought Democrats out more than the media told us would happen. Republicans stayed home because they felt that their vote wasn’t needed. Even though candidates begged them to come to the polls, the media played it as a whitewash for the GOP. That didn’t help matters, and it showed up. Had the Republicans voted like they could have and should have done, they would have swept the House and taken over the Senate.

So, let’s view this as a combination of blame. Donald Trump for not spending money in the general election, and picking the wrong candidates to begin with; Joe Biden for not campaigning much especially when no one wanted him; the media for overselling the “red wave” starting in March of this year; and the fact that abortion and the threat to Democracy lines did actually help Dems’ cause all were the factors. I think when they do all of the post-mortems on this one, that’s what they are going to come up with. Whether or not the Republicans actually learn from it and make adjustments before 2024 is going to be the real question!

Since You Asked…

I get a lot of emails, several comments, and a lot of folks that know me personally that know I write a blog ask a lot of questions. But there is one overriding question that seems to be prevalent today.

Will Trump pull out the election?

My answer is actually two-fold.

The first answer has to accept the fact that Trump supporters are not those that take kindly to polls. They’ll either lie to the pollsters or not answer their questions altogether. Now, if that is the case, what you’re seeing in national and “battleground state” polls is wrong. Because the Trump side isn’t being fairly represented. The other issue with this point is that there are some polling companies that are obviously biased, both ways. And those that are biased in favor of the left will over-sample Democrats and under-sample Republicans. One poll I saw had sampled 47% Democrats and 24% Republicans, leaving a whopping 29% as independents!

Now, if this scenario in any of its forms is to actually take place, and it did indeed take place four years ago, then Trump is actually sitting pretty. Because even though it shows Biden as sweeping everything, it is closer than it was with Hillary running back then. If any of this is true, I would expect another Trump victory in November.

The second answer, however, has to accept the fact that these polls are at least somewhat correct. I’m not too sure about this one. The media is laying a huge bet that they can convince America that everyone is turning against Donald Trump and he’s going to be standing at the ballot box all by himself come election day. I’m not really sure that’s the case because frankly, I don’t trust the media anymore.

If, however, this scenario proves to be true and Trump truly IS losing to Biden by double digits in all of the battleground states as well as nationally, the party is over and Biden (and whoever his handlers are calling the shots) will take over the White House. If indeed this is true, I would also look for Democrats to increase their lead in the House and retake the Senate. I really don’t know as if I can trust the poll numbers to the degree that they are coming out. I know I don’t trust the media’s reporting on them. All of the polls are showing Biden with this huge lead. If history tells us one thing, it’s that no politician since Ronald Reagan’s re-election has had what I’d call a “landslide” victory. That was 36 years ago.

So, while I can’t give a definitive answer one way or another in this question just yet, I can say that it would be probably, maybe, possibly more feasible that the first scenario is more accurate than the second. I know Democrats are juiced to get to the polls, not to vote for Joe Biden, but to vote against Donald Trump, and that’s fueled by the media’s hatred of him. The media would have you believe that now the Biden ticket has more enthusiasm than Trump’s side, and I find that hard to believe. It may be true, but it would be Trump-hatred rather than Biden loving that is the cause. And when sane people actually look at who’s running and what they stand for, I cannot believe rational people will feel that Biden is the best choice. After all, the guy has done absolutely nothing in 50 years in Washington DC!

Trump’s Triumphant Return

The President of the United States began his reelection campaign in earnest on Saturday, opening up with a huge event in Tulsa, Oklahoma. People had started lining up outside the Bok Center two days prior to the event, and the place had just one thing in common with the George Floyd riots of the week earlier…there was no social distancing to be found. In fact, there were very few masks to be found.

Trump was in his element as he bashed Joe Biden, the Antifa mob, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her socialist clan in the House of Representatives, and do-nothing Democrats in general, who have succeeded in one thing this term in the House. They’ve been able to impeach Donald Trump, which was their sole reason for being there in the first place. Of course, it did nothing because the Senate overwhelmingly squashed the conviction phase, and we learned a few weeks ago that the entire process was a sham set up by Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi. Every single person that went before the television cameras, from John Brennan to Samantha Powers, to Susan Rice, who all said that Donald Trump colluded with the Russians and “they knew” because “they had information”, lied. When they got before Schiff’s committee, it was a different story. Of course, that was done behind closed doors and the American public was kept in the dark about it.

There was one thing that AOC thought was funny. Apparently, she had a band of teenagers on Tik-Tok make phony reservation requests to the Trump campaign so they would limit the size of the audience. It didn’t matter. They could have filled an arena ten times as large. And Trump’s message, though at times slamming the opposition as he is wont to do, was positive and upbeat.

In essence, Trump did, what I thought he should be doing all along. Tell the folks what you’ve done over the past four years, and what your plans are for the next four years, and how Joe Biden couldn’t begin to do it. All he’s got to say is that Biden’s been in Washington for 49 years. Why hasn’t he solved any of our nation’s problems in that time period?

It was great to see Trump being Trump. There was no stumbling. There was no long, drawn-out Coronavirus “thank you’s” that permeated the daily briefings of the past. Now that Trump has gotten one under his belt, and we’ve seen the massive crowds that turned out for it, it’ll be interesting to see what happens when he’s doing one of these every day. And Joe Biden continues to nap in his basement. Yet another Hillary Clinton candidacy gone awry!

Media Takes ANOTHER Hit

If you’re old enough to remember the “Golden Age” of media, think back to when Walter Cronkite hosted the CBS Evening News. Over at NBC there were the two guys, Chet Huntley (the older one), and David Brinkley (the younger one). And at ABC, which was the upstart network at the time, there was Howard K. Smith. Remember that? People trusted those guys to give them the news straight. You had no idea that all of them were flaming liberal snowflakes! They took their jobs seriously, wanted you to know that facts, and that’s what was presented.

I can’t think of what would have happened had any of the four news anchors mentioned above would have been accused of “faking” the news. And yet, a scant 60 years later, it’s commonplace. Media giants like the three broadcast networks, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and others have all been found guilty of making up stories and having to fire reporters because they fudged the facts.

So, what’s this mean as to our trust in media?

It’s declined. Now, it’s not the worst it’s ever been…but it’s getting closer. Only 41% of us, according to a September 26th Gallup poll, trust the media to give us unbiased information. That’s down from 46% last year, and is inching ever closer to the all-time low of 32% which occurred right before the 2016 elections when it looked like the media was in bed with Hillary Clinton.

The highest this poll had it was back in 1999, as the Clinton presidency was winding down. Back then 55% of us felt the media was trustworthy (the poll was started by Gallup in 1997, right around the time of Clinton’s impeachment. I couldn’t begin to tell you what the percentage of Americans trusted Cronkite, Huntley & Brinkley, and Smith, but I bet it was at least in the 80% range.

Media today is a circus. As a former member of that profession (and REALLY glad I’m out of it!), newscasters, journalists, columnists, talk show hosts, disk jockeys, and the like are all on the outs. I’ve regaled in these blogs all of the problems of media in this day and age, and the fact it’s almost impossible for the big corporations to continue making money. So, they have to turn to the yellow journalism, made up stories, fake news, and tabloid-like coverage of stories that they used to deride as “National Enquirer trash” only a couple of decades ago. For a news journalist of any kind to be likened to that publication used to be a death blow to their career. Today, National Enquirer is actually more trusted than most of these networks and publications that I mentioned.

We discussed yesterday how liberals and conservatives, all members of The Club, are fighting for their very lives. Well, the media is involved in that too. They are complicit in this charade, and give rise to the whole problem we’re seeing. And as they continue to jump on the Democrats’ lying about trying to find anything to get rid of Donald Trump, the media circus puts on more clown face, and goes about their business.

It makes me very sad to have to admit I was once a member of that group!
