A small and necessary reminder at Thanksgiving time

TO THE NFL AND ITS PLAYERS…

If I have brain cancer, I don’t ask my dentist what I should do. If my car has a problem, I don’t seek help from a plumber! Why do you think the public cares what a football player thinks about politics? If we want to know about football, then depending on the information we seek, we might consult with you, but even a quarterback doesn’t seek advice on playing his position from a defensive tackle!

You seem to have this over-inflated view of yourselves, thinking because you enjoy working on such a large-scale stage that somehow your opinion about everything matters. The NFL realizes the importance of its “image” so it has rules that specify the clothes and insignia you can wear, the language you use, and your “antics” after a touchdown or other “great” play. But somehow you and your employer don’t seem to care that you willfully disgrace the entire nation and its 320 million people in the eyes of the world by publicly disrespecting this country, its flag, and its anthem! The taxpaying citizens of this country subsidize your plush work environments, yet you choose to use those venues to openly offend those very citizens.

Do you even remotely understand what the flag of this country means to so many of its citizens before you choose to “take a knee” in protesting this country during our national anthem?

You may think because you are paid so much that your job is tough and your opinion is worth hearing, but you are clueless when it comes to being tough and worthy. 

Let me show you those whose job is really tough.

 

You haven't been shot at lately...

You haven't slept in a mudhole lately...

You haven't hiked up any mountains lately...

You are spoiled babies who stand around and have staff-people squirt Gatorade in your mouths, sit in front of misting cooler fans when it’s warm, and rest on heated benches when it’s cold. That’s not “tough”…that’s called pampered.
 
You think you deserve to be paid excessively high salaries because you play a game where you can incur career ending injuries. Let me show you career ending injuries!


 

Career-ending injuries...

Another career-ending injury...

A planeload of career-ending injuries.

You think you deserve immediate medical attention and the best medical facilities and doctors when injured. Let me show you what it’s like for those who really need and deserve medical attention.

 

 

A real career-ender...

And another...

You think you have the right to disrespect the flag of the United States, the one our veterans fought for in the past and still fight for today, risking limbs and mental stability to defend, and in many cases die for. Let me show you what our flag means to them, their families, and their friends.

 

 

A portrait of a flag-lover...

A portrait of a flag-loving mother and son who won't see Dad again

This American deserves honor. You deserve none.

This American seeks nothing but some peace and understanding...

Another American who only wants to continue living for and honoring the flag she loves...

You believe you are our heroes, when in reality you are nothing but overpaid entertainers who exist solely for our enjoyment! Well, your current antics are neither entertaining nor enjoyable, but rather a disgrace to this country, its citizens, all our veterans and their families, and the sacrifices they have made to ensure this country remains free. You choose to openly disgrace this country in the eyes of the rest of the world, yet with all your money you still choose to live here rather than anywhere else.  People with even the slightest amount of class will stand and respect our flag. Where does that put you? You want to see heroes… here are this country’s heroes!

 

 

A hero lies buried here.

Another hero here...

This young wife will never see her hero again...

This young son KNOWS who his hero is...

More heroes coming home...

One hero saying goodbye to another...

One hero saying goodbye to another…

Family of four paid $900 per month for Obamacare health insurance last year…their monthly premium in the year ahead? Over $3000 per month.

Over the past several months, Democrats have jumped on every opportunity possible to blame the Trump administration for yet another year of staggering Obamacare premium increases.

Ironically, despite arguments from the Left that Trump’s defunding of Obamacare’s marketing budget would cause 2018 signups to plunge, as Politico recently noted, they’re actually up in 2018…which begs the question: was the Obama administration just wasting $100 million a year in taxpayer money for nothing?  Shocking thought, we know.

Meanwhile a fresh barrage of outcries from Democrats, most notably Nancy Pelosi, came after Trump’s decision to cut federal subsidies, an action which the CBO insisted could result in devastating premium increases of up to 20%.

Of course, if Trump is responsible for 20% of Obamacare’s premium hikes in 2018, then perhaps Nancy Pelosi should explain to the Dixon family in Charlottesville, VA precisely who is responsible for the other portion of the 235% premium hike they just received.

As the Washington Post pointed out, the Dixons, a family of 4 in Virginia, were shocked earlier this month to find that their Obamacare premiums were going to surge from roughly $900 per month in 2017 to over $3,000 per month in 2018.

 Ian Dixon, who left his full-time job in 2016 to pursue an app-development business, did so because the ACA guaranteed that he could still have quality coverage for his young family, he said.

But when the 38-year-old Charlottesville husband and father of a 3- and a 1-year-old went to re-enroll this month, his only choice for coverage would cost him more than $3,000 a month for his family of four, which amounted to an increase of more than 300 percent over the $900 he paid the year before. And this is for the second-cheapest option, with a deductible of $9,200.

“Helpless is definitely a good word for it,” Dixon said. “Rage is also a good word for it.”

Obamacare

Of course, Democrats and the MSM also applauded Obamacare’s ‘great success’ earlier this year when several counties that were previously feared to be left with no coverage options in 2018, suddenly picked up a carrier.  That said, perhaps Bloomberg, Reuters, NBC, etc. should reconsider just how meaningful these Obamacare monopolies are if the premiums charged are so high that no one can afford them anyway…

Earlier this year, Aetna and Anthem pulled out of the Albemarle market, citing too much unpredictability and risk. A smaller carrier, Optima, came in to fill the void. Consumers in the area went from having 19 plans offered in the options from Aetna and Anthem to only five coverage options with Optima.

Several factors led to Optima’s offering such high-priced plans, said Michael Dudley, the president of Optima.

First, small communities like Charlottesville tend to be pricier to cover because there is a small patient pool to balance out risks. So Optima took a cue from the carriers who had already ditched the market when actuaries predicted it was a place where the insurance companies might be paying out more to cover claims than it receives in premiums.

It is also a more expensive coverage area because the primary provider is University of Virginia Health System, an academic medical center that charges higher rates for its care than a community hospital. Optima will include UVA Health System in-network, unlike many carriers who have dropped the big medical centers as a cost-saving measure.

Perhaps local business owner Shawn Cossette can provide the Obamacare cheerleaders within the media some helpful insights…

Among them was Shawn Marie Cossette, 55, who runs her own event and floral design business in Charlottesville. Last year, she purchased an Anthem silver plan for $550 a month for herself. This year, under Optima, a silver plan would cost her $1,859 monthly.

“It’s a huge percentage of my income,” she said. “I really believed in the ACA. I really feel everyone deserves the right to health insurance, but who can afford those prices if you don’t qualify for subsidies?”

We in the US pay far more for healthcare than anyone else does by a very wide margin, and we desperately need to get healthcare costs down.  We also need to get health insurance premiums back to reasonable levels.

One way to do this would be to legalize the group buying plans that Rand Paul has been proposing. By allowing large groups of people (the NRA would be one example) to band together to buy health insurance, that would give average citizens much more negotiating (and buying) power with the health insurance companies.

Models such as direct primary care that cut health insurance companies out of the equation entirely are another option.

The US healthcare system is deeply broken and getting worse; we need to get back to a system that is centered primarily on doctors and patients.

Repealing the Obamacare individual mandate would not only boost health freedom, it would save the government hundreds of BILLIONS of dollars

Healthcare rates still going thru the roof...

Two of the most important aspects of repealing Obamacare are regularly under-reported by the “mainstream” media and ignored by Democrats: Getting rid of the law’s individual mandate would not only dramatically enhance health freedom, it would also save our broke government hundreds of billions of dollars.

As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, the Congressional Budget Office estimated last week that getting rid of the mandate — a requirement that all Americans be forced to buy overpriced, under-delivering insurance — would save $338 billion over the next decade.

Under the law, Americans who fail to purchase health insurance as required are fined by the Internal Revenue Service. A recent report by the Taxpayer Advocate Service found that about 4 million Americans paid an average penalty of $708 this year, or $2.8 billion in all, the Free Beacon reported.

The site reported further: The budget office predicts that eliminating the mandate would reduce the deficit by $338 billion from 2018 to 2027 and would decrease the number of those with health insurance by 4 million in 2019 and by 13 million in 2027. Even with this loss, the report says that markets would remain stable in almost all areas of the United States over the next decade.

And there’s this: What Obamacare supporters and the Democrats who imposed it on the country won’t tell you is that the majority of those who “lose” insurance without the mandate will choose to voluntarily ditch their insurance coverage.

In other words, they will be exercising their full health freedom to make a conscious choice to go without coverage — a right that Obamacare took away from all of us.

And there would be a variety of reasons for ditching coverage. Younger Americans who are healthy may simply ditch pricey health insurance. Others who are wealthy enough to pay for their own coverage, even when they experience a catastrophic illness or injury, would also make that choice.

Other Americans who are generally healthy but want some coverage may buy a policy that only covers a catastrophe. And so on. But the point is, health freedom means the freedom to choose what kind of coverage you wantif you want any at all. (Related: The meltdown of the Obamacare mandate)

As for the financial aspects of ditching the mandate, supporters of repeal noted that it would dramatically reduce the government’s fiscal outlay.

“We’re seeing with the CBO report that repealing the mandate would reduce the deficit by nearly $340 billion over 10 years,” said Sally Pipes, president of the Pacific Research Institute. “The report estimates that by 2027, about 13 million fewer Americans would enroll in ACA-compliant plans.”

She added: “What’s great news is that if the mandate were repealed, most markets would remain stable. That’s significant for the millions of Americans who would become free to purchase other health care plans that are better fits for both them and their families.”

In fact, other experts say that markets would not simply stabilize, but premiums would mostly likely fall because companies would be forced to compete once again for customers. Prices would fall and quality of products would go up, they argue.

During a tele-townhall last February, U.S. Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Texas, told about 7,500 constituents that as it stands the mandate gets rid of market requirements that insurers sell customers plans they really want. That, in turn, has reduced competitiveness due to a restriction in the kinds of plans that can be offered.

He said “repealing the mandate and changing the rules will mean more competition and lower premiums.”

“The individual mandate is certainly one of the most unpopular Obamacare regulations—and it’s largely been a failure,” Pipes said. “Not as many Americans are insured in the Obamacare insurance exchanges as originally projected, and premiums have skyrocketed since 2013.”

Why the Democrats have finally turned on the Clintons

The C stands for "criminal."

In the winter of ’56, Khrushchev told the 20th Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union that Stalin may not have been a very nice guy. In the fall of ’17, the media began to concede that maybe Bill Clinton did abuse a whole bunch of women. And maybe those women weren’t really part of a vast right-wing conspiracy to make a bloated piggish progressive ex-prez seem like he might not be a very nice guy.

Why are Democrats turning on the Clintons? Same reason Khrushchev turned on Stalin. They’re purging the Clintons for the same reasons that they defended them. They’re calling out Bill Clinton for his sexual assaults for the same reasons that they covered them up. It’s about power and money.

The Democrats smeared Bill Clinton’s accusers then. Now they’ll exploit them to throw the Clintons out.

The #MeToo campaign provided an opening. But if you really want to understand why the left is disavowing Bill Clinton, ignore the hashtags and look at the bigger picture.

Earlier this month, the rollout of Donna Brazile’s book raked Hillary Clinton and her campaign over the coals. The former interim DNC boss made the case that the Clinton campaign had rigged the primaries.

Brazile’s outrage at the rigging is laughable. Not only was she caught passing a debate question to Hillary, but the only reason she was allowed to replace Debbie Wasserman Schultz is that she was a Clintonista who had served as a Clinton adviser and was promoted to head Gore’s campaign.

After Hillary’s collapse, Brazile was left out in the cold. Like Schultz, she was one of Hillary’s fall girls. And unlike Schultz, she didn’t have a cozy congressional district to call her own. Her CNN contract was torn up after the debate question leak. (Though if you think CNN was actually surprised that a Clinton ally leaked it to the Clintons, you’re also shocked that there’s gambling going on at Rick’s Cafe Americain. CNN had to disavow Donna who then had to disavow Hillary. Now the Dems are disavowing the Clintons.)

Brazile’s book tour was Act 1 in purging the Clintons from the Dem establishment. Talking about Bill Clinton’s sexual harassment and abuses is Act 2. And the odds are very good that there’s an Act 3. Or 4. Or 5.

Why get rid of the Clintons? Let’s look at what the First Grifters have been doing to the Dems.

In May, Hillary rolled out Onward Together. The new SuperPAC was supposed to fundraise for lefty groups. But the groups don’t actually appear to be getting the cash.

Understandable. The “flat broke” Clintons always have lots of bills to pay and private jets to book. And good chardonnay doesn’t come cheap.

Fresh from that success, a paid advisor to Hillary co-launched something called Party Majority. This wonderful new organization would “act as a parallel structure to Democratic Party committees at the national and state levels,” vacuuming up a whole lot of cash while putting its boot on the DNC.

The Clintons were once again trying to displace the DNC. And that would let them skim a lot of cash from the DNC to fund their political operation and lifestyle. And, even once again, rig the process.

Who’s up for Hillary in 2020?  Party Majority rolled out in early November.  Since then the Clintons are suddenly being hit from all sides by their own party.  Funny how that works.

If President Hillary Clinton were in the White House, the First Gentleman could work his way through an entire nunnery and every media outlet in the country would praise him as our greatest feminist.

If the Clintons had done the decent thing (for the first time in their miserable grifter lives) and stepped away from politics, Bill could have been a bitter, bigoted and befuddled Democrat elder statesman.  Just like Jimmy Carter.  But the Clintons just wouldn’t stop. And so the circular firing squad has finally been convened. Its members are hypocritically pretending that they’re purging Bill because they suddenly care about the women he sexually assaulted over the years.

It only took the Dems an entire generation to figure out that rape is wrong.

Hillary Clinton’s approval ratings are terrible. Every time she goes on television, more people are likely to vote Republican. Her entire existence is a reminder of why the Democrats lost so badly in ’16.

 Not only won’t Hillary Clinton retire to bake cookies and send anonymous threatening letters to her neighbors because their kids occasionally throw a ball over her mansion’s iron gates, but she insists on sabotaging the 2020 candidates who are her party’s best hope to succeed where she miserably failed.

Hillary Clinton’s book, What Happened, took numerous shots at Bernie Sanders. And her entire book tour appeared designed to sabotage his book tour. Then she began attacking Joe Biden.  Both Bernie and Joe, unlike her, are viable 2020 candidates. (Which says nothing good about the Dems.)

The media doesn’t suddenly “believe Juanita”.  Or rather it always knew that Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, Paula Jones and the other women were telling the truth. It didn’t silence them because it thought they were lying.  It silenced them because they were telling the truth about Bubba Clinton.

Now Bill Clinton isn’t the media’s guy anymore. And he’s becoming a huge problem.

What the media does believe, without question, is that the Clintons will continue to be a liability that might cost them victories in 2018 and 2020. The DNC badly needs money. The Clintons are once again posing a threat to the DNC’s financial viability. And the Dems have become less willing to lose House and Senate seats to sate the insatiable greed of Bill and Hillary Grifter.

Then there’s 2020. The Dems don’t want to risk their nominee facing passive aggressive attacks by Hillary Clinton. Nor do they want to see Hillary Clinton on the air for the entire election period firing shots at their candidates.

The Clintons could have had a nice retirement. Seats on boards and foundations. Occasional smaller scale speaking gigs. Bill could have been a featured speaker at the next DNC convention.  And maybe even Hillary in a lesser role.

But they wouldn’t go quietly. And now the left is making it a mandatory retirement.

Act 1 blames Hillary for rigging the primaries. Act 2 calls out Bill’s abuse of women. Acts 3, 4 and 5 will delve into some other Clinton scandals that Democrats have been denying for over a generation. If the Clintons don’t get the message, the final act will plant a big red boot in their behinds.

And this won’t even be the first time the Dems tried to get rid of the Clintons.

After Bill’s time was up, the Dems and the media tried to head off a Hillary political career at the pass. Let’s flip through the pages of the New York Times in 2001 that describe Hillary’s “calamitous Senate debut” and cautions that “talk about her presidential prospects has ground to a halt.”

“The man is so thoroughly corrupt it’s frightening,” a Times column reads. “The Clintons may or may not be led away in handcuffs someday.”

In AmSoc, history is constantly being rewritten. A few years later, no criticism of the Clintons could be allowed. And everyone forgot that Carter’s chief-of-staff had called them “The First Grifters.”  Or at least they pretended to forget.

It’s not the first time that the Dems have tried to get rid of the Clintons. But it might be the last.

Like Stalin’s Communist successors, Democrats should not be allowed to pretend that they knew nothing or that their purge of the Clintons is motivated by a sudden attack of integrity.  They’re purging the Clintons for the same reason that they covered up for them.

They’re calling out Bill Clinton for his sexual assaults for the same reason that they covered them up.

They did it out of political self-interest then. And they’re doing it out of political self-interest now. There’s nothing clean or honest about what they’re doing. There’s no moral reckoning here. Only a political reckoning. It’s not about the women Bill abused. It’s about DNC cash and the 2020 election.

That’s the dirty, ugly truth. And it’s as dirty and ugly as the Clintons and the Democrats.

Trouble is, dirty and ugly is the only way the Clintons know how to do anything.

President of the American Heart Association, who is only 52, just had a heart attack; probably not taking enough of the drugs he tells everyone else to take

“Big Pharma” drug cartel just changed the definition of “high blood pressure” to trick HALF of U.S. adults into taking high-profit prescription drugs

The pharmaceutical drug cartel in the US has become not just a total joke to medical science, but increasingly a threat to the health and safety of the American people. In the latest medical hoax designed to generate profit from the mass medication of nearly everyone, the American Heart Association — a quack medicine front group for the pharmaceutical industry — announced a new definition of “high blood pressure” that means half of U.S. adults suddenly have a “disease” requiring “treatment” with high-profit pharmaceuticals.

This total quackery of disease definition creep is one of the favorite ploys of the profit-driven drug cartels in the United States. (It’s called “Disease Mongering.”)  A few years ago “high cholesterol” was redefined as part of a tactic to boost statin drug sales (which now generate billions in revenue each year).  Suddenly, doctors all across the country were prescribing statin drugs to patients who, just a week earlier, had no “disease” at all. But thanks to the AHA’s collusion with the drug industry to artificially lower the acceptable level of cholesterol in the body, tens of millions of Americans were spontaneously diagnosed with “high cholesterol.”

Over-medication of the population, you see, has become Big Pharma’s primary business model.  And to achieve higher sales, the drug companies have to convince more and more people that they’re sick (even if there’s nothing wrong with them at all).

Drug companies are in business to convince more and more HEALTHY people they really should be taking prescription drugs (preferably for life)

Drug companies, you see, are no longer in the business of merely treating truly sick people, but rather moving the goal posts of “disease” to ensure more and more otherwise healthy people qualify for drug treatment. The AHA, of course, goes right along with this scam.

https://www.cbsnews.com/embed/videos/new-blood-pressure-guidelines/

It’s all explained in this CBS News opening paragraph which accidentally spills the beans on this prescription drug scam:

New guidelines lower the threshold for high blood pressure, adding 30 million Americans to those who have the condition, which now plagues nearly half of U.S. adults.

Notice that CBS News goes right along with the quackery, stating that high blood pressure “now plagues nearly half of U.S. adults.” But last week, no such “plague” existed at all. So what changed overnight? The definition of high blood pressure, of course. Suddenly, it’s a “plague,” according to CBS News (which of course takes lots of advertising money from Big Pharma companies).

What you are witnessing in all this is a massive medical hoax being perpetrated on the American people by a legal drug cartel involving the AHA, drug companies, pharma-funded mainstream media and doctors who earn kickbacks and bribes from pushing these dangerous drugs. It’s not just drug companies, either: Medical device manufacturers are also running outright scams, too, such as the heart stent manufacturers whose products have just recently been shown to be medically useless. We’ve known that for a long time, having reported a decade ago on how drug-coated heart stents actually cause a 400% increase in deaths of heart attack patients.

It’s all organized by the American Heart Association, whose president just had a heart attack at age 52

In case you’re wondering just how credible the AHA really is when it comes to heart health, AHA president John Warner recently suffered a heart attack. He’s only 52 years old. Under his guidance, the AHA is the same quack group that recently attacked coconut oil as being unhealthy and dangerous.

Yes, according to the AHA, all Americans should stop consuming coconut oil and start taking high blood pressure drugs and statin drugs. Because drugs, you see, are considered “nutrition” in the eyes of the big-pharma shills, while real food is considered heresy. (“How dare you eat a coconut that costs a dollar? Here, take this pill that only costs $200…”)

Perhaps AHA president John Warner simply needs to take more pharmaceuticals. After all, that’s his advice for everyone else. But if pharmaceuticals prevent heart attacks, then why didn’t they work for him?  (Answer: Because it’s all a massive medical hoax. Prescription drugs don’t make your heart healthy. Only nutrition, exercise and healthy lifestyle choices can accomplish that.)

The AHA is destroying the health of Americans, bankrupting the nation, and making Big Pharma filthy rich

Sadly, many Americans know so little about health, nutrition and Big Pharma collusion that they might actually believe the new guidelines for high blood pressure. This means tens of millions of Americans will now likely be put on high-profit blood pressure drugs… and this is on top of the statin drugs, psychiatric drugs and anxiety medications they’re already gobbling up in insane quantities. This is how we now live in a world where over half of the population of 65+ is now taking at least five drugs a day, as reported in The Telegraph.

We are now living in an over-medicated world of drugged-up patients who are viewed by the drug industry as biological vessels for dumping high-profit chemicals under the guise of “treatment.” At this pace, it won’t be long before newborn children are instantly diagnosed with blood pressure problems, cholesterol problems and brain chemistry problems, then mercilessly drugged from their very first day.

That’s the goal: Cradle-to-grave mass medication of every living human being on the planet. That’s Big Pharma’s ultimate aim, and as long as people are stupid enough to go along with all their junk science and marketing fraud, Big Pharma will increasingly drug everybody in the world with their toxic deadly chemicals that are falsely named “medicines.”

Truly healthy people don’t need to take ANY medications…NONE

In truth, the healthiest people living today take no drugs at all. If you want to be healthy, focus on nutrition, superfoods, exercise, stress reduction, avoidance of environmental toxins and achieving quality sleep. Doctors and drug companies don’t make you healthy; they just make themselves rich at your expense. And at the same time they’re exploiting you for profit, they’re also bankrupting the nation, polluting the environment (with big-pharma drugs now found in the public water supplies of major U.S. cities) and destroying innocent lives.

It is precisely these kinds of quackery-based marketing scams that are now waking people up to the greater truth: Big Pharma has become a scourge on our world and must be stopped. The mass medication of every living human is not medical “treatment” but rather the perversion of medicine and a growing chemical catastrophe with dire global consequences.

Medical patients across the western world are now being drugged into oblivion while nations are being bankrupted by associated health care costs. Big Pharma has mastered the art of extracting money from the economy by transforming human beings into drug receptacles, with the goal of dumping an ever-increasing number of drugs into the same human bodies, all while billing state-run health care systems to collect obscene profits. This entire cycle of medical stupidity has nothing whatsoever to do with health, compassion, science, medicine or disease prevention. It is purely about maximizing the number of prescriptions written for people, even if those people have nothing wrong with them.

Yet the pharmaceutical giants wield so much power and influence that they’ve taken over the science journals, medical schools, mainstream media outlets, and even government regulators. In effect, they have transformed America into a “pharma state” where much of the political power, economy, culture, and so-called “medical science” now centers around the mass drugging of everyone. But you need to ask a simple question: After gobbling all these drugs in unprecedented quantities, are Americans healthier today than they were two generations ago? Not by a long shot.  Americans are now more diseased than ever.

It’s obvious the drugs aren’t needed or working, because if they were, we’d be the healthiest nation on the planet.

NORM ‘n’ AL Note:  Next time you sit down for a TV break, try making a list of all the drug ads you see. You know there are lots of drug companies trying to sell us their poison products, but did you ever actually make a list to see how many of them you see in any given TV hour?  “Ask your doctor if ZombieMax is right for you!”  Do you think all the Big-Pharma companies are spending buckets of ad money without doing any research? Absolutely not. Those companies know beyond any doubt whatsoever that their advertising pays off big-time!  You hear about ZombieMax, you look it up or you see it also advertised in a magazine, and you DO ask your doctor about it.  Your doctor gets a kick-back from the drug manufacturer for prescribing it, so he’s happy to do so.  Here’s another challenge: Write down the stated or printed side effects for each drug you see advertised.  Those drugs don’t sound so wonderful when you discover they can kill you, do they?  (According to the FDA [the U.S. Food and Drug Administration], more than 100,000 Americans die from taking prescription drugs each year, making this the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S.  By comparison, illegal street drugs kill only about 10,000 Americans yearly.)

Get to know Ann Voskamp…

Ann Voskamp

I believe in Jehovah God who created the whirling galaxies, the birds soaring in the sky overhead, the endless crashing waves and all that dances within them. I believe in Father of all who knits together life, made in His very own image, in the secret quiet of our beings.

I believe in Jesus Christ, the One with no earthly Father, with the dust of this earth between His toes, and with our names etched onto the palm of His hands, right beneath the nail scars…Who now sits at the Father’s right hand making endless intercession on our behalf. I believe in the stone rolled away, in the Body being raised, in the first fruits of the dead…and us all following soon, very soon.

I believe in the Cross as our only Hope, our only Claim, our only Savior, and our only Foundation. I believe that in the pounding surf of life we have only one thing to cling to: the feet of our perfect Lord Jesus, hanging on that tree, His lifeblood flowing down, washing us whiter than snow. It’s all by His staggering grace, lest any man should boast.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, moving, whispering, indwelling our very being. I believe in living by the Spirit, walking in the Spirit, and producing fruit in the Spirit…in the Spirit who helps us in our weakness with groanings that can’t be expressed in words.

I believe in the infallibility of the Bible, God’s Word – a sure Word, a pure Word, the only secure Word. I believe the words on those pages are breathed from the very throne room of heaven, are the love letter penned from the heart of God; a beacon of light for stumbling feet to find sure footing on a dark path.

I believe there is more than believing. There is living what I believe.

Corporate-controlled media wants to grow into a “disinfo dictatorship”

MSM wants to be our "disinfo dictatorship"

America is under siege. As much as I write about the scourge of chemical pesticides, hormone disruptors, GMO genetic pollution and mercury in vaccines, the far more insidious poison that has infected the minds of half the country is the corporate-controlled media running a “disinfo dictatorship.”

Sometimes called the “mainstream media” or “left-wing media,” the corporate-controlled media (CCM) in America has been weaponized against this nation and its citizens for the purpose of overthrowing America, eliminating its borders, destroying liberty and installing a totalitarian, globalist government regime that rules over an enslaved nation.

This is accomplished by the CCM completely ignoring all news and events that contradict their false narratives (such as the federal corruption trial of N.J. Sen. Bob Menendez) while exaggerating or fabricating whatever news events promote their narratives (like the recent Roy Moore accusations).

When a real event occurs that the media doesn’t want people to recognize as having actually taken place — such as Hillary Clinton’s physical sickness and near loss of consciousness at the 9/11 memorial in 2016 — the media’s “fact checker” organizations simply declare any reports on that event to be false. This wholesale deception and dishonesty is exactly why Project Veritas has named the corporate-controlled media “American Pravda.”

The Bob Menendez criminal trial — involving child sex trafficking — is utterly ignored by the left-wing media for the simple reason that Menendez is a Democrat!

By selectively deciding what “facts” the public sees, the CCM creates an artificial “bubble” reality in the minds of its viewers, painting a completely false worldview that happens to be anti-Trump, anti-American, pro-communism, pro-vaccine, pro-GMO, etc.

If Roy Moore were a Democrat, the media would be attacking his accusers

To fully understand the insidiousness of the corporate-controlled media, consider the current media onslaught against Alabama candidate Roy Moore. Barely one month before the election, the wholly discredited political rag known as The Washington Post drums up an accusation from a woman who claims to remember unwelcomed touching nearly 40 years ago. Regardless of whether the accusation is true or not, if Roy Moore were a Democrat, the Washington Post would be smearing the accusers.

When a Republican gets accused of something, you see, the Republican is automatically guilty. When a Democrat gets accused of something, the accusers are always liars, according to the CCM. That’s how they gave Bill Clinton a pass on the rapes and sexual assaults leveled against him by a multitude of credible women over the years. Yet even to this day, there has been zero acknowledgement of Bill Clinton’s sexual advances by the corporate-controlled media.

To rags like the Washington Post, Democrats are allowed to rape women… and it’s always the woman’s fault, too!

If Donald Trump were a Democrat, his actions would be hailed as “brilliant”

President Trump, meanwhile, is mocked, ridiculed and lied about at every opportunity by this weaponized left-wing media. Their goal, of course, is to convince all of America to vote against Trump in 2020, replacing him with their selected Democrat (who might be a rapist or a pedophile, but that would be completely covered up by the media anyway).

If Trump were a Democrat, everything he does would be hailed as “brilliant” or even god-like. Right now, the left-wing media goes out of its way to try to make Trump look as stupid as possible, even if it means lying about his “fish feeding” in Japan. But if Barack Obama fed the fish in the exact same way, it would have been heralded as “honoring the Japanese culture” and celebrated as yet another example of Obama’s international brilliance.

Consider the media’s portrayal of Hillary Clinton, one of the most truly evil, murderous political mafia bosses of all time. According to the left-wing media, Hillary is a goddess of truth, wisdom and women’s rights. Yet in truth, she collected hundreds of millions of dollars from foreign nationals while selling out 20% of the U.S. strategic uranium supply to Russia-linked companies. Hillary Clinton was also the “bimbo eruption” mastermind who led the attacks to smear and defame all the women who accused her husband of sexual assaults, rape and inappropriate sexual behavior.

On top of all that, it is widely known throughout the halls of Washington D.C. that the Clintons ordered the executions of dozens of individuals who had dirt on them, going all the way back to Bill Clinton’s Arkansas governorship. This is just as widely known as Harvey Weinstein’s sexual assaults on women, yet the entire corporate-controlled media pretends the Clintons are saviors of America. To this day, there are Clinton cultists — mostly women — who literally worship Hillary Clinton, totally oblivious to the truth about what an evil monster she truly is. And this is all due to the corporate-controlled media’s twisted narratives that routinely depict Democrats as saviors and Republicans as horrible people.

In essence, the left-wing media has woven a dark tapestry of lies, deceptions and half-truths that are all intended to destroy American patriotism, obliterate independent thinking, crush the Trump presidency and make sure a left-wing globalist tyrant takes over the White House in 2020. To do this, the dishonest fake news media has created a “fact-free universe” where almost everything believed by leftists is a fabrication.

Consider just a few of the things Leftists now commonly believe to be absolutely true:

  • That all white people are inherently evil and being white is bad. Yes, the very same political movement that once claimed people should never judge others by the color of their skin now routinely judges others by the color of their skin.
  • That men can have menstrual periods or even give birth, because being a man or a woman is a “choice” that has nothing to do with biological reality. (The transgenderism delusion.)
  • That masculinity is automatically “toxic” by definition, and that men are born with a chemical imbalance that makes them insane and dangerous to society. This is all part of the ongoing campaign to marginalize men and have society ruled by women like Hillary Clinton.
  • That the oceans are going to inundate New York City and Miami under hundreds of feet of water that will arrive as a giant wave due to sudden global warming.
  • That communism is vastly superior to our Democratic Republic because centrally planned economies are somehow more efficient and fair.
  • That “diversity” means a room full of people with different skin color who all obediently parrot the exact same thoughts, words and beliefs.
  • That “equality” should be the ultimate goal in every society, even if it means crushing freedom and punishing innovation.
  • That anyone who disagrees with a Democrat is automatically a racist, sexist, Islamaphobe or other form of “deplorable.”
  • That free speech should no longer be tolerated for those who do not go along with the narratives of the Left.
  • That it’s okay to violently harm or even murder people who are Trump supporters because, well, they’re labeled “facists.”

Under the influence of the corporate-controlled media, in essence, the political Left in America has become a dangerous CULT. This cult is reinforced by the CCM, late-night comedy (Jimmy Kimmel) and even educational institutions which are now heavily infiltrated by left-wing cult members posing as educators.

This cult demands absolute obedience and tolerates no dissent whatsoever. Nearly all left-wing journalists are members of this cult, and because they are fully indoctrinated into the cult, they cannot see the world with anything resembling clarity. All events and “facts” are filtered through their left-wing cult beliefs which are rooted in “consensus facts” such as all men are “toxic”; all white people are “racist”; all Republicans are evil; all gun owners are murderers, etc.

Remember, too, that the left-wing cult operating in America today believes all sorts of bizarre fictions such as:

  • Parents are bad (only the State should control children)
  • God is dead (left-wing cultism is rooted in atheism and the believe that the State is your god)
  • Families are sexist (because motherhood is an assault against women)
  • Men are dangerous (merely because they are men)
  • Individualism is also dangerous (collectivism is the real solution)
  • Rationality is evil (all political decisions must be rooted in emotional appeal, bypassing reason)

As any thinking person can see, the left-wing cult is truly dangerous. Note that the left-wing cult believes that actual facts, logic and reason are all dangerous ideas because they are mostly rooted in white male philosophy which has also been labeled dangerous by numerous academic institutions. (Yes, the entire field of philosophy is now condemned because of its roots in Roman “white male” philosophical teachers.)

One left-leaning university professor has even denounced mathematics as being “racist” because its history is rooted in the genius of historical mathematicians who didn’t have brown skin. Her name is Rochelle Gutierrez, and she is a professor at the University of Illinois. Her goal is “to completely abolish mathematics because she believes that subjects like algebra and geometry are inherently racist.” (No, I’m not making this up…)

This is just a small taste of how insane, delusional and dangerous the media-inspired left-wing cult has become in America today. Yet these people depict whites, males and conservatives as being the dangerous members of society who must be eliminated in the interests of “justice” and “equality.” (The Left’s definitions of such concepts are, of course, rooted entirely in emotional delusions rather than reasoned understanding.)

You may have already figured out that societies which operate on the principles of this left-wing cult always end in totalitarianism followed by collapse (think Venezuela or North Korea).

Yet nearly half the country has voluntarily signed up for this disastrous outcome. And how have they been convinced? By the “weaponized” corporate-controlled media, of course. The media has convinced them that falsehoods are true… and deceived them into abandoning cause and effect in favor of dangerous notions like “equality” that can only exist in a totalitarian regime.

The left-wing media is now the single most dangerous entity in America for the simple reason that it infects the minds of the masses with dangerous false beliefs that can only end in monumental human suffering.

Now is the time to support the independent media

This is why the corporate-controlled media must be strenuously opposed, exposed and made obsolete. That can be accelerated by supporting the independent media in two simple ways:

1) Make Censored.news your daily news source. This mobile-friendly website now features The Gateway Pundit, Blacklisted News, USA Watchdog and many other leading indy news sources. Stories are updated automatically, in near-real time.

2) Use GoodGopher.com as your news search engine. This news search site spiders thousands of indy news sources each day, giving you the ability to search the independent media for breaking news that you simply won’t find covered in left-wing media outlets.

Vote against every political candidate endorsed by mainstream media

Finally, vote against the media in all future elections. Any candidate promoted by the corporate-controlled media is a dangerous person, period. It’s a simple but powerful rule of thumb: Vote in favor of whichever candidate the media is systematically attacking and smearing. Remember: The media is anti-America, anti-reason, anti-freedom and anti-reality. Any candidate promoted by the media should be vehemently opposed, since they would not be promoted by the media unless they sought to undermine America and destroy all those who are attempting to protect American culture and liberties.

That’s the takeaway point in all this: In every election, a vote against the media is a vote for America. Hilariously, the media openly tells you which candidate to oppose by insisting that’s the person you should vote for. Every candidate endorsed by the Washington Post, New York Times, CNN, HuffPost or MSNBC is, by definition, a clear and present danger to this nation.

Oppose them at every opportunity. Stop paying any attention to the left-wing media, and get your information about the world from independent, thinking sources like Natural News. Remember, too, that the more an independent media news source is attacked and smeared by the corporate-controlled media, the more they’re on target and a threat to the “disinfo dictatorship” of the media machine.

NORM ‘n’ AL Note:  We offer this post in an attempt to encourage you to think for yourself.  Start with this realization: News media such as the New York Times, the Washington Post, and many others used to be reputable dispensers of news. Today, with the onslaught of “fake news” designed to promote an agenda rather than to legitimately inform the public, these media giants are happy to print virtually anything that promotes their cause.  Even what we are here telling you is not news; over a hundred years ago the well-known writer Mark Twain dispensed his own brand of wisdom by saying “If you do not read the newspaper, you are uninformed. If you DO read the newspaper, you are misinformed.”
