A Timely Reminder

Originally posted just a few months ago, the crumbling of society has accelerated, exacerbated by an aggressively emboldened - or increasingly desperate - MSM to mis- and disinform anyone attempting to pay attention via their "News". Feel free to share with your friends, especially those having trouble with discernment. BW

When searching for the reason why things go wrong, stop when you get to the Media.

The Media is our Teacher. It's the whole world's teacher.  Everything we learn, we learn from the Media.With screens, cameras, actors and glib, well-coiffed hosts, radio and TV signals, cable, microwave, publishing, the all-powerful Internet with its own 'social media', it instructs us hourly, daily, weekly, month in, year out. The classroom is anywhere; it's ubiquitous. Class is in session even when school is closed. The course are Obedience, Submission, Conformity, Regimentation. There is no 'graduation'. There is no individual achievement, only the 'Greater Good'.  "We're all in this together" is our motto.




The Media teaches unquestioning obedience through Fear based on Ignorance, the greatest, most effective motivational tools ever; critical thinking is forbidden. Distortion and disinformation construct the new and ever-changing 'normal with a vocabulary to wordsmith the emotive code words that fill the Orwellian lexicon: "minuscule" becomes "gigantic"; insignificant events are "explosive".  Seasonal storms are always "life-threatening"; the flu becomes a Pandemic. Property damage always "resembles a war zone". A deadly crime morphs into "heart-wrenching tragedy" with cell phone video of a crying woman, (+10 if she's holding a child, +50 if she is holding a baby, +100 if she is also pregnant). Sirens, blood, the sartorial anchor intones"Warning - some images may be disturbing to some viewers"; a close-up of a shell casing gets extra dramatic credit. Any increase of anything "skyrockets". Disagreements turn into "Battle Grounds". Looters are "Peaceful Protesters" while rioters are "Mostly Peaceful Protesters". Factual analysis opposing the Official Media Narrative is a 'vicious attack', a 'scandal'; contrary opinions based on irrefutable facts are declared "racist!". Every story, newscast or issue features "bombshells" while Reality is adjusted or ignored whenever it doesn't fit in the Media's syllabus...which, of course, it rarely does.

And Class is never dismissed.

From The Next President

To any aspiring Democratic politician:

If you'd like to be President one day --  Maybe soon --  Put the following in a full page ad in the WaPo, get yourself booked on some talk shows and read this: 


An Open Letter from a Democratic Politician to all Democratic Politicians

My fellow Democrats – Let's face it; we blew it. Lead by Speaker Pelosi, Chairman Schiff and Chairman Nadler, these past 3 years we have conducted ourselves in a way that has severely divided America. Continuing with this impeachment hoax – and it is a hoax and we all know it - will only destroy the Democratic Party and impugn all the great principles we once stood for. Our Leadership – and our so-called 'friends' in the media – have strongly encouraged, even threatened us, if did not 'toe the line'. As a result, regardless of where you're from or how long you've been in office, very few of us will be returning after the coming elections.


We have only one choice to save America and th…

A Doctor - Patient conversation

A  Doctor is explaining the pandemic to a coma patient who just woke up…

Dr: “They shut down the world because of a worldwide pandemic.”
Patient: “OMG! How many people are infected?”
Dr : “About 11 Million.”
Patient: “OMG! 11 million people died?”
Dr: “No, only 500 thousand… Kind of.”
Patient: “What do you mean ‘kind of’?”
Dr: “Well… they keep halving the number of deaths due to double counting, inaccurate tests and mislabeled death certificates. Also, most of the people that die are elderly and dying of other things. There are also people who died because of incorrect ventilator use and other treatments because no-one really understands the virus.”
Patient: “I don’t get it. So how many died from ONLY the virus… like literally dropped dead in the street?”
Dr: “No-one. Only in hospitals and nursing homes”
Patient: “I don’t get it.”
Dr: “Neither do I, it’s a very confusing time.”
Patient: “So they cured the other 11 million people then?”
Dr: “No, most didn’t have any symptoms and in fa…
