    Most dictatorships have small front groups of “opposition” spokespersons to create the impression of freedom when in fact there is none. The Nazi Reichstag had a small contingent of “non-party” members, the East German communists customarily governed “in coalition” with two smaller parties that were ostensibly noncommunist but were in fact merely satellites of the ruling marxists and in North Korea to this day the Workers Party is “opposed” by other small groups. Any “conservative” that would accept employment from the Orwellian Ministry of Truth that is “The New York Times” is obviously a walking talking false flag operation. We must answer Brooks, Stephens and the other puppets every day during 2018 by reminding regular Americans that this country is still only about 100,000 votes away from Venezuela and Zimbabwe. The severely-wounded United States is teetering on the precipice, and what American normals decide to do in 2018 will decide whether our republic actually falls into the chasm of Third World marxism.

      Miles, do you or anyone else on this site have liberal site into which we can post the truth? How do we get our comments directly TO Books and Stephens, and other liberal lackies?

      Back in 2010, I lived in Texas, and was determined to tell what I had gone through in my 30 years living in and near Philadelphia. Massive voter fraud; massive lying. I attended all Republican and Tea Pary functions, and gave them “facts from Philly.” But I found the greatest results came from talking with Democrats who were not political – Democrats because the family had always been, and love for Franklin D. Roosevelt, who died in ?1944?

      My Texas county went totally Republican, with even Democrat office holders not up for election switching to Republican!

      We need to get the message to people who are not political, stressing he factual dangers to our country.

The local library even let me set up a WWII toy soldier display, where a lot of 18 – 22’s showed up, and young married with children 6 – 12. The word gets out.

        I live in Louisiana and have a cousin who is one of those kind of Democrats. She’s 84 years old and still votes Democrat because at one time nearly everybody in the South did. It’s like she never realized that the Democrat Party became a front for the Communists by the late ’60s. And when you try and tell her that, it’s like talking to the wall and goes completely over her head.

I was in my 70’s, and they were glad to help to old retiree get to good fishing locations. “Why did you move here from the North” opened my flood gages as I told them about what the Dems do up north – rampant voter fraud in Demcrat dominated districts, etc. We have not lost them.

            roy moore fixed that for a generation. The support he was given by POTUS and the R’s in both House and Senate showed them to be the most craven of politicians. How can you ever justify running a child molester for a Senate seat?

          • ray Maurer

            There was an excellent article on the internet in December, telling us much about the South those 35-40 years ago, and much about Roy Moore’s delay in being able to date. We should all read it, and remember those were different days, with not so bad “standards.” Clearly, he was not then, and is not since, a child molester.

Since all politicians from both parties are craven animals, why do you think all those folks have decided to get out when their party holds all the reins of power? I’ll tell you why. They see ’18 as a potential wave year. Why bust your azz to raise 3-5M only to lose? Get out a winner. That’s exactly what they’re doing!

            That’s how the Democratic party works. If they can’t win on their vision for America, they will lie and cheat and destroy any candidate that blocks their way…. even if that candidate is a democrat. Just ask Bernie Sanders how the DNC cheated him in favor of Hillary. Hillary was also given the debate questions in advance. People may think this country wouldn’t vote for a women president but that’s not the case. They would not vote for Hillary….even if she were a man.
            There was a performance piece done at New York University where a male candidate played Hillary and a female candidate played Trump. The audience was not told this. The campaigning and debates were presented and the respective candidates used phrases and promises that each candidate in real life actually presented. They also used the same mannerisms and bravado. Guess what happened….Trump still won as a woman. Real life Hillary didn’t lose because she was a woman. She lost because she is a lying, cheating, corrupt politician and the general public knows it.

            “Any woman in the White House” is not a good slogan. It has to be based on something other than gender….or race as Obama’s was. Don’t try to tell me he wasn’t voted in for his race when 95% of the black demographic voted for him when all the other demographics were fairly evenly split. If you don’t consider that to be blatant racism, you don’t know what the term means.
            This win in Alabama that was brought about by destroying someone with lies is going to come back to bite the democratic party. Republicans may not think up these disgusting ploys, but once the democrats think up the ploys, they are very easy to copy. Their manipulation of congressional rules to pass Obamacare came back to bite them in this latest tax bill that just passed because republicans used the new rules to thwart democrats efforts to block it. And this tax bill is even good for this country as opposed to Obamacare which did little of what it promised to do. My medical costs certainly aren’t more affordable. Are yours?

Chances are they will both be subject to discovery, under oath. It’s telling which party initiated the suit, don’t you think?

            Forty years ago in the deep South, Mamas were always looking for the “perfect” man to whom they would wed their debutante daughters. Didn’t matter how young the girls were or how old the men were. All that mattered was~~ Is he single? And is he wealthy? Roy Moore was therefore qualified in Mama’s eyes to wed her little girl~~ and she would do whatever it took. And the Southern girls were trained from babyhood to hook a “good catch.” And yes, I know what I’m talking about.

            There will never be absolute proof. In law it’s called “preponderance of the evidence”. Several girls/women spoke with family and friends at the time of the incidents. Those tend not to be the kind of stories that 14 or 16 year old girls would share with friends and family if they had not occurred. moore threatened to sue the women during the election. Those suits would have required him to swear to the facts of the cases under oath in discovery. moore never sued. Kind of makes you wonder if he was worried about those denials if he had to swear to their truthfulness under oath, doesn’t it? If you think he was telling the truth, where are the lawsuits he promised?

            In our country he has to be proven guilty. He does not have to prove he’s innocent. By your logic, why didn’t the girls press charges if something terrible happened to them? They would have had to swear under oath that the charges were true and none of them ever did. By your logic they must not be telling the truth.
            While you’re pondering that, how easy do you think it would be to pay 40 or so people to make up a story and stick to it? That seems more plausible to me, especially in light of all the thousands of paid protesters that have been around all year causing general mayhem. Keep in mind the entry in the girl’s yearbook was forged. Do people telling the truth do that?

            Roy Moore was never even charged with child molesting let alone convicted of it. So, contrary to your comment, he is still innocent. Over the last 40 years he went through numerous elections and was highly vetted for his position as a judge and none of this crap ever came up. Not even a rumor of it came up. Now, when the democrats desperately wanted his seat in the Senate all these allegations came up. The lady who claimed he signed her yearbook was found to have forged it. Is it not even plausible to you that this was just a smear campaign to destroy this man so he could not be a senator? Do you not even have the slightest doubt? I have major doubts and I’d say that at I’m at least 70% sure this was a coordinated smear job by the Democratic party. It doesn’t bode well for the future of this country. None of us will be immune to such a smear job.

While in school, the kid was spouting off all of the left wing garbage being fed to him by academia. Now that he’s actually having to work for a living, he’s finally realizing how wrong the left has been all these decades and agrees with what President Trump is doing concerning getting rid of outrageous taxes on middle class working people and hoping that Obamacare is finally flushed into the sewer where it belongs. I suppose that if he were welfare trash he’d still be a left wing Democrap expecting handouts from a govt. that steals from honest working people, but luckily he’s not and has finally started to see what’s really going on in this world.

Think about it Nancy, the biggest fall off for the R’s this past year has been educated whites from the suburbs. Exactly the people you claim voted R. And they did indeed vote R until you clowns elected that self dealing moron as POTUS and began running child molesters as Senate candidates. So, you give me some anecdotal evidence about some friend of your uncles neighbor, I’m giving you the actual results of elections going into the ’18 cycle. I think I’ll put money on my evidence, not yours.

            Where is your evidence regarding the “fall off” of educated white voters in suburbs. We have not had a election that proves that. Of course if your info comes from NYT,CNN or MSNBC. You can make up any scenario that you wish to push. Like a lot of Liberal/Communists you immediately start name calling as your du-jour method of discussion. Give me some ANECDOTAL EVIDENCE regarding anything Obama accomplished for educated whites in the suburbs in EIGHT years. As far as Moore is concerned. It is Republicans that made sure he was not elected. Franken had been harassing women for years before one brave woman got rid of him. Not the Democratic party. As far as child molesters. Go through the Hollywood list and they are all Liberals. Meryl Streep wants to trash the Trump women regarding their supposed silence yet Streep called Weinstein a GOD on national TV. Hollywood has no business talking about public morals because they have none. They have been making trash for years. The nudity and the language and the sex makes it impossible to take children to a movie. Unless it is a cartoon and then they sneak in references to sex.

I know you guys are still looking for that Liberal groundswell.. It has kind of evaded you for the last 9 years. What have you lost in the last 9 years? The Presidency,Congress,Surpreme Court (2),20 Governorships and over 2000 state races. I would keep looking for that groundswell. In fact you are in such deep do-do you lost to Trump.

            Nah, jesus as a curse word. You’ve heard it that way, right? You’re still wearing that dunce cap I see. There is a difference between anecdotal and evidence based observations. The results of VA and AL were based on evidence, ie, an election. You see, there is a saying in my business, “Trees don’t grow to the sky”. That means that things don’t move in one direction forever. It means that there are cycles. Politics is one of those cycles. No team keeps winning forever. In fact, when one team scores a chain of wins (like you described) they naturally begin to take losses. The pendulum swung as far as it was going to go with the election of that moron trump (not my description-the description of many of his “friends”). Fielding the child molester moore was icing on the cake. Real Americans are coming to the rescue. Just the fact that you reference AL in 2018 shows that you don’t have a clue about how politics works. Doug Jones will be seated until the 2020 cycle. No doubt he will lose to an R then, but for the remainder of this year the split in the Senate will be 51-49. You did notice how hard things were for the R’s with a 52-48 split, right? Question for you: do you think 51-49 will be easier or harder for the R team? One of the biggest things the D’s have going for them is people like you. You’ve shown in a few posts now that you’re just a mindless trump knob gobbler who thinks because he won once he can never lose again. Not having a smart opposition gives the home team an advantage. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

            Your reference to JESUS as a curse word is what I would expect. That cycle has been going on for 2,000 years. You lose!!! Your comment regarding google and white voters is ANECDOTOL. I think google might have been in charge of the 2016 polls. Unless Jones wants to be a 2 year Senator. He might be looking over his shoulder. I actually was impressed that you claimed to have a job. Kind of unusual for a Liberal. Actually trees do grow to the sky….in Communist countries. The thing I am counting on is that Liberals have three years to screw up their chances. The things that will keep Trump’s base in place are people like you,Hollywood,Colbert etc etc. We are counting on it. Oh I forgot NK and Iran……and the economy. Jobs counter the cycle.

            You must sell shovels for a living because you just keep digging that hole. Google is simply a tool to access information, it’s not information in and of itself. You can locate the fact based information about the actual results of the recent off year contests. The results are consistent: R’s are losing their historical share of suburban voters. I don’t expect you to agree. Hell, I don’t even expect you to research it. You lazy lemmings just do what rush and sean tell you to do. It works fine. Until it doesn’t. So, trees do grow to the sky, eh? You are that slow that you think because a government tells you something is true (communism) than it is so? I guess that explains your devotion to trump. You know, the guy who said that the stock market returns of ’09 thru ’16 were “phony” but who now brags daily about the same S&P numbers he trashed? The guy who said the unemployment rate during those same years was a “sham” and really about 40%, but now brags about the same stat daily when it’s down .3% from when he took office? Why am I not surprised? This is the guy who doesn’t know the difference between evidence and anecdote! On one thing you are correct. The D’s may screw up in both ’18 and ’20. But consider this: the news of the day is the POTUS sending lawyers letters to his ex chief strategist to cease and desist. He is behaving like a thirteen year old girl. I have a hunch (nah, there is plenty of evidence) that Real Americans are getting pretty sick of this never ending soap opera. The evidence so far this cycle is that Real Americans want a check on this fraud. They want at least one body of government looking over his shoulder. They have shown in purple VA and ruby red AL that they are ready to make this happen. I occasionally like to gamble. But I only gamble when I know the rules of the game. If I were to put a few dollars on either the red or the blue team now that the ’18 cycle has begun my money would be on blue in November. The only people who are betting on red at this point are the hannity droolers and the alex jones space shots. Which one are you?

            There are a number of reasons why Trump became President. 1. Hillary was a poor candidate. Obama did nothing for Middle America. White America saw one big city after another on fire and felt that Obama has his finger on the scale. Obama and the Democrats are becoming more Socialist. So far White America is not falling for this BS. NOW depending on how successful the tax reform bill works will decide 2018 and 2020. Year after year blue collar workers voted Democratic. They were as reliable as Black voters. They woke up in the middle 80’s and realized Hell the unions could not save them from a Global economy and neither could Democrats. Of course the Black voters have never caught on and probably never will. I think they like the plantation. As far as your cycle theory. You are correct. However since the 80’s it is tipping for Conservatives. Here is what I can not get my head around. Socialist/Communists can not point to ANY economic success by any country in the world at any time. Why do you think the Democrats can successfully pull this off? You do not really believe that wealthy people are not found in Communist countries? Does trickle down economics occur in Socialist ,Communist countries?

          • track

            Democrats are not Socialists or Communists any more than Republicans are Fascists or Na*is. Those are bombs that each party throws to rile up their base. Unfortunately it seems to work for the less educated of both parties. I agree with you that Hillary was a poor candidate. Political parties are like generals, always fighting the last war. I’d be surprised if the D’s made a similar mistake again. Obama came into office during what was the deepest recession the country had experienced since the Great Depression of 1930’s. His primary responsibility was to level the ship. He did that.
            Many in trumps base are falling for his con. I’m a New Yorker. We’ve known trump for the entire fifty years of his career. He is absolutely loathed in NYC. He lost his home district 90% to 10%. Before you say that everyone here is rich and Democrat, remember that NYC is like everywhere else in America. Most people are cops and teachers and plumbers. And NYC elected Rudy for several terms. Everyone here knows that trump has screwed the little guy every chance he got for his entire career. He fu*ks the little guy because the little guy can’t fight back. Remember the story about the scorpion and the frog? The frog gives in to the scorpions pleas to give him a ride across the river. The scorpion stings the frog half way over. “Why did you do that? Now we’re both going to die” said the frog. “You knew what I was when you agreed to take me” said the scorpion. trump is the scorpion. You’ll find out, just like all his neighbors in NYC did. It’ll just take a bit more time. He is a self dealer who will do nothing for anyone who isn’t named trump. It’s just what he does.
            One last point. America is indeed the greatest country in the world. We make plenty of mistakes, but we’re still far better than even the next in line. If you look at our history, we’ve moved gradually to the left over the past 240 years. Sometimes it’s two steps left and then one back right, but the trend is toward inclusion and rights for all of our citizens. It wasn’t that long ago that blacks couldn’t eat in the same restaurant as whites. It wasn’t long before that that women couldn’t vote. My point is we’ve become more open over time, not more closed. We became the undisputed superpower of the world only after WW2. Before that time we were a regional power at best. The period since 1945 has truly been explosive for us (in the best sense of the word) and it also corresponds with the liberalization of our country and our laws. I don’t think the two can be separated. Inward, autocratic countries fail. If we allow that to happen here I’m afraid we’ll suffer the same fate.

Conservative econiomics frees money businesses to take advantage of people and create dangerous bubbles., which in the explosion cost me half my income and retirement….This is not the America I am intrested in. The GOP does not even want much freedom…their version of freedom is only about what????BUSINESS…not individuals they have even gone as far as deciding a business has the same rights as an indiividual??? really a collection of legal documents has as many or more rights than me??? so fix all that sh()t and you might stand a chance.

        • ray Maurer

          Lets look back: President Jimmy Carter came up with the idea that everyone should own his own home. He has since been a volunteer builder for Habitats for Humanity – a noble commitment.

          But those who followed pushed the financial industry into providing mortgages, even to people who could not , or would not, pay the money back. The Feds insisted that “Freddy and Fannie” would guaranty the loans, so the banks could not lose.

          George W. Bush, president, went to Congress to express concern with these loans, but Progressive Barnie Frank, congressman from MA, insisted “move on, there is nothing to see here,” and was supported by too many others, thus ignoring the pending disaster.

          The banks – correctly – did not trust the Feds, and began to “bundle” bad loans with good loans and sell them of to other investors. Eventually this bubble burst, and we had the Great (Democrat-caused) Recession of 2007.

          Under the Obama regime, Jamie Dimond’s bank was fined over $13 billion for his bank pushing these loans (not true!). Obama had asked him in 2008 to buy up a failing giant savings and loan in California. Jamie agreed, but “you cannot hold us responsible for loans made by that bank.” Obama agreed. But Dimond was vocally anti- Obama, so they fined him to shut him up. The progressive, Democrat-owned press covered this up. A typical “Free and Fair” action by the Democrats!

          Business is the business of the United States! We grow stronger in the world, and in our own lives, because of Economic Freedom (called Capitalism). The tax bill lowers business taxes by 40% (35% down to 21%), giving us the ability to compete against so many other countries making their products less expensively than we could. Trump has reversed hundreds of EPA and other regulations that strangled our businesses, and caused many to close down (with all those lost jobs), and others to lay of thousands. Under Obama, I saw many businesses fire their US born IT staffs, replacing them with H1B’s from India. These companies agree to pay severance to the US workers only if they would train the new Indian workers. Very Free and Fair of the Democrats. Very Free and Fair to US workers in particular.

          I would love to go on, but I still am productive at 81, and must go towork and go forward in consulting to bring manufacturing back from China to the US, with new US jobs. Won two last year, with more to come!

        What is funny is I would like people like you and others on this site to know the truth and facts. Trump is not only a nasty man, but also a sick man. Since you probably get your news from rightwing sites, radio and Fox you probably do not know over 30,000 mental health professionals agree.
        Our healthcare is in shambles now. We left the Iran nuclear deal which was working fine. The tax bill will hurt the working poor and middle class and blow a huge hole in the deficit. His cabinet is full of elite, wealthy people even though he promised to drain the swamp. It frightens me that you do not see this. Propaganda is how the Nazis took over Germany. Whoever controls the message will control the people and right now the message is owned by big industries (Pharma, Military profiteers, big banks, fossil fuels) When will people see this?

        • ray Maurer

          It saddens me how little you know, how little you care about real achievement.

          30,000 left-wing health “professionals” agree, for that is what the Progressive tyranny requires. We all know that the American Medical Association is dominated by Democrat doctors. Just another bunch of Fake News lefties. Trump may be infected with love of country – an illness I share!

          Trump has been a builder for much of his life. He was in the trenches with construction workers, and got his kids involved too. He is a New Yorker, and you must admit that 90% of the nation – NOT in or from New York – consider all New York city citizens as a nasty bunch!

          We may gave the best health care in the world, despite Obama and his attempts to destroy our care. The insurance is a mess, but demanding that young, healthy Americans pay heavy premiums for the rest of us in the ultimate leftist tyranny.
          Canadians by the thousands come here for care, rather than die waiting for health care.

          Obama kept silent when the people of Iran tried to break free, and many were slaughtered. He sent them palate-loads of cash – currency of many nations – to be used to finance terrorists. Today the Iranian people are again in an uprising, and thanks to Trump’s support, and hopefully an alliance among Israel, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and others we may see freedom come again to Iran.

          He lowered business taxes from 35% of net earnings – one of the highest rates in the world, and a major US job killer – to 21%, and that will help us make product in the USA (much production coming back from overseas and new jobs for us), allowing us to compete on a more-level “playing field.” More workers will pay taxes that will more than cover the lower business taxes paid to the government.

          Teachers and other unions invest in the stock market, and the market is booming. That’s a lot of new money for the pension funds. Real benefit to the American workers – “the working poor and middle class.”

          More jobs will get many who left work on manufactured disabilities will now come back into the working market, reducing welfare, getting people off unemployment, and increasing tax income. So much for “a huge hole in the deficit.

          I have watched Wilbur Ross in action for years. He was in private equity, and invested in failing manufacturing companies, bringing them back to strength, saving jobs for the working class and middle class, and protecting their pensions. He is dedicated to making American great again.

          Rex Tillerson headed the largest US petroleum company, which pays about $18 billion in taxes in each and every quarter up ’til now. It is a dangerous and erratic industry, and now they will be able to do more exploration and develop new sources of petroleum, and also get into alternative sources of energy. Solar may be of little value for the next 75 years, for the sun is in a period of slow burning, much like the planet experienced in the multi-year little ice age, ending after the French Revolution of 1789. Two years in a row of poor crop yield set off that catastrophe.

          These and others in his cabinet from the private sector, the productive sector. Rather than as Obama did in giving the city in Michigan money to study their lead-in-the-water problem, these men would go ahead and replace the pipes!

          At 81, I am truly proud of my president. I had little hope for him to win, and went to bed believing that Hillary was a 90% “Sure-in.” My wife awoke me in the middle of the night to tell me he won, and I see marvelous gains for all American who would be productive citizens.

          • lfallar

            Believe me, I wish it was true. Trump went bankrupt 6 times. He left partners, investors and contractors in the wind. When US Banks refused to loan him any more money he went to Russians. What he is afraid of in not collusion. He is afraid of exposing his history of money laundering with Russian oligarchs. His casinos were fined multiple times for laundering money.
            It is sad and ridiculous to claim the AMA is all democrats. The disorder he has is called Malignant Narcissistic disorder. He has all the symptoms. You can choose to ignore his history and facts.
            As far as trickle down economics it has failed both times we tried it. If you want to believe it will work this time that is your choice. I hope you are right. He said he would get rid of the loop holes used by Wall St but he DID NOT. He claimed this Bill would hurt wealthy people like him and lied. It amazes me how often he lies and yet his base accepts it. All I can do is pray we make it through his administration and hope the damage he is doing can be repaired.

          • ray Maurer

            Again, you do not dig for the truth. This was all exposed way back in 2015 during his run-up to the candidacy.

            Trump was not alone. He invested to create businesses, and went into Chapter 11, rather than liquidate them completely. It is a safety valve to protect companies from downturns like the housing bubble of 2008

            From Politifact:

            (For the record, Trump doesn’t deny the charge and instead argues it was a smart business decision.) At the time, we found four bankruptcies, but since then, we’ve found two more for a total of six. So Clinton was right that Trump bankrupted companies four times, and she could have offered a higher count as well.

            Let’s go through them one by one.

            Bankruptcy No. 1: The Trump Taj Mahal, 1991
            Trump’s first bankruptcy may have hit the businessman, personally, the hardest, according to news reports.
            He funded the construction of the $1 billion Trump Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City, N.J., which opened in 1990, primarily with junk bonds at a whopping 14 percent interest. A year later, the casino was nearly $3 billion in debt, while Trump had racked up nearly $900 million in personal liabilities. So Trump decided to file for Chapter 11 reorganization, according to the New York Times.
            As a result, Trump gave up half his personal stake in the casino and sold his yacht and airline, according to the Washington Post.

            Bankruptcy No. 2: Trump Castle, 1992
            Within a year of his first Chapter 11 filing, Trump found himself in bankruptcy court again for Trump Castle, which opened in 1985. It was his “weakest gambling hall,” according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, and ironically faced competition from Trump Taj Mahal. In March 1992, the Castle filed a prepackaged bankruptcy plan, and Trump gave up his 50 percent share in the casino for lower interest rates on $338 million worth of bonds.

            Bankruptcy No. 3: Trump Plaza and Casino, 1992
            The Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, which opened in 1984, declared bankruptcy at the same time as the Castle. A $210 million joint project of Trump’s and Harrah’s, the casino had racked up $250 million in debt by 1992, after a staggering 80 percent decline in cash flow. So Trump Plaza filed for prepackaged bankruptcy that spring as well.

            Bankruptcy No. 4: Plaza Hotel, 1992
            Later that year, Trump filed bankruptcy on another Plaza, this one in New York. Trump purchased the Plaza Hotel in Midtown Manhattan for $390 million in 1988, but it accumulated more than $550 million in debt by 1992. In December 1992, Trump relinquished a 49 percent stake in the Plaza to a total of six lenders, according to ABC News. Trump remained the hotel’s CEO, but it was merely a gesture; he didn’t earn a salary and had no say in the hotel’s day-to-day operations, according to the New York Times.

            Bankruptcy No. 5: Trump Hotels and Casinos Resorts, 2004
            Trump Hotels and Casinos Resorts filed for bankruptcy again in 2004 when his casinos — including the Trump Taj Mahal, Trump Marina and Trump Plaza casinos in Atlantic City, and a riverboat casino in Indiana — had accrued an estimated $1.8 billion in debt, according to the Associated Press. Trump agreed to reduce his share in the company from 47 percent to 27 percent in a restructuring plan, but he was still the company’s largest single shareholder and remained in charge of its operations. Trump told the Associated Press at the time that the company represented less than 1 percent of his net worth.

            Bankruptcy No. 6: Trump Entertainment Resorts, 2009
            Trump Entertainment Resorts — formerly Trump Hotels and Casinos Resorts — was hit hard by the 2008 economic recession and missed a $53.1 million bond interest payment in December 2008, according to ABC News. It declared Chapter 11 in February 2009. After debating with the company’s board of directors, Trump resigned as the company’s chairman and had his corporate stake in the company reduced to 10 percent. The company continued to use Trump’s name in licensing.

            Whose fault is it anyways?
            Experts told us during the primary season Trump alone didn’t cause the bankruptcies. While six in 25 years is a lot, five were tied to a struggling gaming industry.

            Trump was acting, they said, as any investor would. Investors often own many non-integrated companies, which they fund by taking on debt, and some of them inevitably file for bankruptcy, Adam Levitin, a law professor at Georgetown University, previously told us.

            He added that people typically wouldn’t personally blame former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney or investor Warren Buffett for individual failures within their investment companies, Bain Capital and Berkshire Hathaway, respectively.

            “The only difference is that Trump puts his name on his companies, which means people associate them with him, but he’s not at all the leader in the bankruptcy space,” Levitin said.

            Our ruling
            Clinton said, Trump has “bankrupted his companies not once, not twice but four times.”
            Trump has actually filed Chapter 11 six times, four times within two years in the 1990s, once more in 2004 and once more in 2009. But experts told us Trump shouldn’t bear all the responsibility, as Clinton’s wording suggests, as the majority of bankruptcies happened as the overall casino industry struggled.

          • ray Maurer

            You need to help us with this one. I have had no luck on the internet except from Fake News sources:

            :”When US Banks refused to loan him any more money he went to Russians. What he is afraid of in not collusion. He is afraid of exposing his history of money laundering with Russian oligarchs. His casinos were fined multiple times for laundering money.”

            The AMA is dominated by Democrats. So is the Law Association. No facts, no examination, and lots accomplished for all of us this past year!

            The “lies” you talk about are “hyperole,” exaggeration, no like the factual, punishing lies that Obama told: “If you want to keep your doctor, you can. If you want to keep your health care plan, you can.” and on and on.

            “We pulled out of Iraq because they ordered us out,” when in fact the President of the US could have merely said “we stay!” He pulled us out and ISIS exploded. Obama did more harm to us than any other president – maybe ALL other presidents – in our history.

            You’ve really got to stop using ancient progressive clichés like “trickle down.” A company brings manufacturing back to the US, and needs – and hires – more people. New jobs are not “trickle down.” If anything, that is a term best used form putting minorities on welfare, and a new slavery under the Democrats.

          • lfallar

            Talk about cliches! Democrats do not want to put minorities on Welfare. Under the GOP policies we have far more whites on welfare.
            When Obama took office Bush had already signed a Status Of Forces Agreement to leave Iraq because the Iraqis would not sign off on giving American soldiers immunity. Of course Obama followed that Bush agreement.
            Companies are NOT going to invest and hire anyone until they have customers with money to buy their product or service. We need to deal with demand side not supply side. The CEO’s even said they would buy back their own stock with their tax cut savings. I hope and pray they expand and hire, but history says they won’t.
            I work in healthcare. In the 50’s,60’s and 70’s our system was pretty good. we had non profit insurance companies and reasonable rates. In the 80’s we changed. For profit insurance and Pharma took over. We allowed insurance companies to call the shots. It became the number 1 reason for families to file bankruptcy. Obama should have gone with single payer, but he went with the Republican written plan that kept for profit insurance in the system, but they no longer could kick you off insurance for pre existing issues and it helped subsidize lower income people to buy insurance. Romney implemented the same program in MA when he was Governor. We would be idiots not to want the ACA. It protected us from insurance companies doing whatever they want and no more junk policies. Trump destroyed the individual mandate to ruin the system so now we will go back to abusive insurance companies, bankruptcies and high premiums….gee thanks trump.

          • ray Maurer

            Democrats need to split us into little pockets of race, gender, sexual preference, etc, and then drag down the economy to put minorities into welfare. They prefer illiterate, low educated, low skilled immigrants who will vote Democrat to get welfare, to stay alive.

            Companies are forced to make or buy overseas, shutting down US plants that might have hired young blacks, and they lose their jobs. In the inner cities, black youths are not real men until they get their girlfriends pregnant. The girls may keep the child, then go on welfare, and the father is not allowed to live with her and the baby. They blame others, but vote Democrat to keep some money coming.

            Fully 45% of black pregnancies wind up as abortions. Democrats are anti-life, push abortion at any time, even up to the time of birth. We have over 61,000,000 dead babies as a result (61 million reasons to vote Republican!). Planned Parenthood was founded by a leftist woman who wanted to quietly exterminate the black race. The black race in my area, back in the 1960’s, was almost 18% of our population. Today it is about 13% and not gaining in proportion to Hispanics – illegals in particular. Yet the blacks keep voting Democrat, and are actually slaves to that party.

            We lost a lot of our military fighting against Moslem terrorism since 9/11. It dishonored our dead to leave Iraq on such terms. It made no sense to leave Iraq, and a wise leader – a true American hero – would have stayed to keep that country free of ISIS. We fought a war in Korea in the 1950’s, and our troops are still there – and South Korea is thriving.

            You must realize that if our companies can bring production back to the US from overseas, and US citizens already buy those manufacturers, there will be new US jobs, and newly employed citizens to buy more of those products.

            Companies bought back their own stock under Obama because it was too expensive here to add plant and equipment. If the companies were to survive, they moved production overseas. Some even moved corporate headquarters overseas because of the far-too-high corporate tax vs the rest of the world. That ends with the new lower taxes.

            Obama went with this time-bomb of a system (ACA) to force us into single payer – his goal from the very beginning. It was structured to fail from the beginning. In Europe, they pay the equivalent of $9 for a gallon of gasoline, and many other punitive taxes to fund their medical insurance. Economic Freedom here, with open competition, could be a major answer to lower cost insurance.

            Trump ended the mandate because our government does NOT have the right to make our citizens buy a product they do not want. They young were penalized, paying for medical services they themselves might never use. Economic Freedom would allow us to buy from a selection of insurance plans, and competition would reduce insurance policy costs.

          • curmudgeon VN Veteran

            Blacks are 12% of the population and are far more of them on welfare than their population figures would dictate. Same with prisons.

          • lfallar

            They also get stopped 10 times as much. They also get shot and killed doing nothing.
            Since the GOP policies of the last 30 yrs have been implemented many more white families are in need of assistance. They want you to blame blacks and immigrants so you don’t blame the real culprits. One day I hope you wake up and see they only care about making the rich and powerful more rich and powerful and hope we all blame each other.

          • Fed Up With Politicians

            Don’t blame the high premiums on Trump! “We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid,” according to Ben Franklin. Democrats made up the way to file bankruptcy and they don’t like that Trump took advantage of it. My son was being charged $1,500/month for Obamacare. He cancelled his insurance and writes a check for his family’s doctor visits which costs him a whole lot less than $1,500/month – less than $1,500/year!!! Blame the insurance companies for being greedy!

          • Fed Up With Politicians

            Trump claimed?? Just look at his history? He left contractors, partners, banks out to dry. He owed US Banks so much that they stopped doing business with him.

        • Ron Poole

          Obama added 10 Trillion dollars to the debt. Maybe you wrote a post about that. How did our Healthcare get in shambles? Obama was in office for 8 years. We have had Obamacare for almost the same time. Tell us what happened in 2017 that put our healthcare in shambles. You know who the new tax reform will not help? The people that do not pay taxes. The people that are sucking at the governments teat. Let’s see you want to get rid of big business that create millions of jobs. You want to get rid of big Pharma(which you do not know what that means) that create the drugs that gives long life. You want to get rid of big Military suppliers that help keep us safe. You want us to get rid of big banks. WHY? Of course finally get rid of coal, gas and oil companies. Of course in doing that it would get rid of electric companies. I get it your perfect life would be a little like Syria or Pakistan. Or maybe like the Soviet Union in the 60’s,70’s were the ladies stood inline for hours to get a loaf of bread. I think America will pass on your perfect life.

        • Fed Up With Politicians

          Our health care was in shambles when Obama was president. Trump is trying to get it right! The working people shouldn’t have to pay insurance costs for the too-lazy-to-hold-a-job!!! Now they go to the doctor every time they sneeze, at our expense!

          • lfallar

            I worked in healthcare for my entire adult life. Obama tried to stop insurance companies from throwing people off due to pre exisitng conditions. He also stopped them from putting caps on claims. Before the ACA it was the number 1 reason that families filed bankruptcy. He should have tried to get single payer passed, but he went with the Republican idea that Romney used in MA. We are fools if we want to go back to insurance companies calling the shots. We have millions of working people that do not get healthcare from their employer. The ACA protects them from getting screwed. Google Wendell Potter. He was an executive for a big insurance company. He couldn’t stand what they were doing to people and came out to tell the truth. Please look him up. We can’t go back to that again.
            I had hoped that Trump would do what he said he would about healthcare, but all he cares about is himself.

          • Fed Up With Politicians

            You’re so wrong! Trump has given millions of his own money to Puerto Rico and Haitians! I’m not saying he’s perfect but he’s doing much more for the people of the U.S. than any other president has done since Reagan! Healthcare needs to go back to the people. I know it needed help with treating people with existing conditions, but that’s the insurance companies, not the President! You need to open your eyes to what he’s trying to do for the ungrateful people of the USA!

      The Libs are fighting against America and are close (you are right) to turn it into Venezuela or some African country or even to early Soviet Union. They pretend they are fighting for equality, like in socialism. But this “socialism” first should get its way through those (above) countries. Many Americans don’t understand it when voting for “Dems” getting into their trap. Their propaganda is worse than that of Goebbels’. And it works. Republicans cannot do like this, otherwise they were not Republicans. The normal person cannot act like a gang, b/c he is NOT a gang.

      You were doing fine until you added the comment about Israel. Israel and the zionists are one of the biggest reasons for the destruction of America.

        • Roger Peabody

          ‘Title’ wasn’t exactly what I had in mind. The guy is a cabbage-headed moron at best. Practically speaking he’s kissing up to co-workers who clearly have no idea what would have befallen this country had Hillary won. Nor do they care. Ideology will do that to a person; i.e. Obama, who may be a reasonably intelligent person, (though I have my doubts), is so wound around the axle of his own ideology he is unable to see the damage, done to the country, because of his policies.

          • William Wilson

  • Big Ed

    So presidents empower cultures. What culture might we expect from a president who don’t feel it’s possible to kill too many babies, who thinks the Constitution should be used for toilet paper, who writes his own laws if he doesn’t like the ones currently on the books, who can’t tell the difference between someone with a penis and someone without one, who invites illegal aliens into the country by the thousands as an aid to getting his party elected in future elections, or who believes that justice should not be available for white people because they already have too much power. My guess is you get a culture of death-a dog eat dog culture-a culture of hate-a banana republic culture. Funny, but I don’t remember hearing a lot about culture when our past black Muslim president was busily destroying our culture and making it impossible for the people to live peacefully.

  • Col C

    So, he prefers someone who betrayed our own embassy in Benghazi (at least 3 people died, True Americans, and she denied them any assistance, so did Obama), someone who punished those that were attacked and raped by her husband, and he prefers someone who sold 1/3 of our uranium to the Russians for 1.4 miillion in donations to the Clinton Foundation, and another .5 million for a Bill Clinton speech in Moscow, pushing for the rich to invest in that same uranium. He prefers Hillary over Trump, even though her top assistant, Huma Abedin, is tied to radical Islam. Is that who he would prefer for president, really? All because Trump has no manners, you got to be kidding. Frankly, I prefer Trump just saying it like it is, and not playing games, has this reporter forgotten how Hillary threw a tantrum when she lost, and started throwing things at Bill and other staff members (real manners, lol) blaming everyone except her own evil, for the loss to Trump? This was never in the media, a reporter was there, but was denied to run the story of Hillary’s tantrum by her boss, who was guess what, a member of the main stream media. This so called conservative reporter is no conservative, more lies and deceit, a wolf in sheep’s clothing, to coin an old cliche, he masquerades as a conservative to lend a sense of fairness to NYT. What a joke.

      Not true–tell me one bad thing Mr Trump has done to this nation–all action TAKEN WAS FOR THE GOOD OF THE NATION–AS A NATION BUILT ON GOD’S WILL, NOT the devil’s

      • niknar

        Why do you rely on such an ungodly man as Trump is to follow “God’s will”?

        The wealthcare bill the Republicans just passed & Trump just signed is totally unnecessary & counterproductive, especially at this time, & mainly throws back more money to those who are already doing splendidly well (corporations & millionaires) at the expense of everything & everybody else, while further endangering our long term fiscal stability by intensifying our debt problem at the very time we should be focusing on reducing it.

        • 1775concord

          Please study the bill so that you may be informed. Corporations make goods or services and have to figure in the tax (35, now 2%) in the cost of their product(s). Lowering the tax rate should slow the growth of, maybe even decrease, prices of good and services.
          Don’t worry about pres Trump and a Republican congress decreasing our debt. That is coming.
          BTW, every tax cut (JFK,RR,Clinton w/capital gains) has shown a huge influx of tax money to the US Treasury. This should , too.

          • niknar

            Tax cuts have only shown strong economic effects when the tax rates are already high, such as JFK’s tax cut when the top bracket was lowered from 91% to 70%. They haven’t worked when taxes are already relatively low, as they are now. Under Reagan, the debt tripled & he ended up having to raise taxes again. Bush’s tax cuts precipitated recessions, including a near depression, & doubled the debt. A progressive tax system, with the highest tax brackets relatively high, as we saw from the ’40s to ’60s, has been highly correlated with strong economic growth & improvement in prosperity at all income levels.

            Republicans may promise to lower the debt, but they never do. They always end up exploding it since at least Reagan. The only modern-day president who managed to lower the debt at all was Clinton at the end of his presidency, which Bush promptly reversed to record deficits with his tax cuts.

        • Rex Whitmer

          Constitutionally, this government should NOT be responsible for individual needs! That was a sense of pride in those days, that every person should pay his or her own expenses. What medical care does is to make every citizen a subject, a servant or slave of the state. The state takes the opinion that its citizens are unable to care for themselves and thus they are property of the state rather than the citizens owning the state! Obama was out to make us all socialists or communists!

          • niknar

            So should a person who is maimed through no fault of his/her own be left destitute & without care?

            What the vast majority of people want more than almost anything else is security: personal security, national security, health security, financial security, food security, etc. Provide all those & you have a happy people, which is why Danes, Costa Ricans & Singaporeans are the happiest people on Earth. They feel the most secure. I encourage you to discover why. The US, by the way, is far down the list.

    • Rex Whitmer

      Better go back and re-evaluate niknar! Obama had the USA at it’s lowest since WWII! Hillary had absolutely no leadership ability and lacked any semblance of morality. She sold herself in the office of Secretary of State as would any common whore! She lacked any ability to lead or even make logical decisions. When she lost, she came near to or may have actually experienced a mental breakdown. NOW, THAT is a person whom was definitely not fid to lead a nation! If you continue to think so I would recommend that you consult with a psychologist as to your own cognizant capabilities!

      • niknar

        My lack of mention of Hillary doesn’t mean that she couldn’t also be hated for the same reasons. In fact she could with good reason.

  • Robert Emanuel

    In claiming to be “conservative,” he’s like Barack Obama, who, in claiming to be a Christian and acknowledging Christ’s death for his sins, STILL maintains there are “other avenues” to make it to Heaven, evidently never reading or, if he did, believing Christ’s own words that “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh to the Father but by ME.” There’s no more way to take Stephens seriously about being conservative than there is Obama as a believer, who denies Christ as the only way to Heaven – perhaps the most key tenet and theological point to Christianity as a belief system. Stephens, in wishing Hillary were president, basically prefers to continue to become the Great Western Caliphate of Islam; doesn’t like lower taxes because he wants govt. to have more money to waste; blindly and stupidly believes the UN has ANY practical worth to ANYbody; and wants us to continue to be the overloaded, bloated, wasteful federal piss-away bureaucracy to which we rose even more under the first Muslim president. As for character and culture counting for anything, Stephens forgets that our Caliph / Commander-in-Chief golfed on the day of the funeral of the only general killed in action since Vietnam, while his lap dog Holder went as his rep to the funeral of thug Michael Brown, a street criminal and terror to his neighborhood. And where is Stephens’ point about culture in Obama’s admission to the late Tim Russert that he and Michelle had attended several burnings of the American flag and do not like the national anthem? Where is character in his view of Obama, who set up a taxpayer-funded program of a quarter billion dollars for education for young black men, excluding all other demographic ethnicities? This is the president who scorns Trump’s desire to build a wall on the Rio Grande, while having one built around his DC estate. This is the president whose character Stephens admires – that of a shameless SOB whose new organization works against the current administration: something no other president ever did. Yeah, Stephens: we hear you – “character and culture.”

    • 1775concord

      On Sept 7 2008, on George Steph’s TV show, Obama said, “My Muslim faith.” Steph clawed back and, Obama, realizing his mistake/blunder, said, “My Christian faith. We heard him in his unguarded moment, and that’s a fact.

      • Robert Emanuel

        AMEN! Good observation about “unguarded moments,” of which he had a few more, but he WAS, the consummate snake-oil salesman-politician, who was not bad at sugar-coating stuff he knew could be taken the wrong way – UNTIL the election. He first asserted the numerous ways to Heaven, including some withOUT Christ, on Oprah’s show, long before he actually threw his hat into the ring for election. He hinted at this with less overt insistence several times after, usually in response to specific questions about his faith, questions which ceased after he was elected; his whores in the media knew NOT to touch that. Thanks for the specific reference!

    • Rex Whitmer

      I am willing to allow any person whom is not attempting to rob me of my Christian privileges to worship my GOD, to worship in whatever manner his supreme being might be, so long as he allows me that same freedom! Unfortunately, the god the muslims worship demands that all whom don’t believe[, must either die or be subject to second class citizenship. Therefore, this belief finds little acceptance in our modern world.

We cannot allow ourselves to be shamed because of what we know and believe. It doesn’t matter what the dissenters believe, they today speak much more freely than we whom worship our creator can!

    So impossible to accept Bret Stephens’ reasoning for hating Trump as even plausibly intelligible or constructive! We convict murderers supposedly, and criminals, but the Hilary Mr.Stephens “loves” and wishes that she had won is a criminal that needs to be convicted of betraying the American law, The American people, the American military. Democracy herself! As a New Yorker, perhaps Mr. Stephens could imagine that, like the Liberals who are organizing the demolition of historical statues, he is applauding, suggesting and encouraging a veritable “Body Snatch” of our beloved Statue of Liberty, with his evil imagination And how would he feel if this happened in his own NYstate? Or would he say the Lady of Liberty had a racist effect, and dash off to pen another divisive, mean thought? Hilary is known to be responsible for drug trafficking, involvement in sexual slavery trafficking through her “Charity” organization, money moving deals which involved theft and profit for herself, even for her daughter’s wedding, and murders of those who worked for her. She has no conscience, nor culture, nor love for the American people, and I think that Mr. Stephens is showing the people that he is of the same soulless culture. There is absolutely no dignity nor morality in dreaming of Hilary Clinton as President, nor Obama or Biden for that matter.

Most, if not all, liberal-social-democrat newspaper mongrels have no idea what they are writing about since they write what their colon suggests, in the absence of working, rational brains. In short these publicity pimps don’t know the difference between scat and shinola.

    NYT doesn’t have any conservatives on it’s staff.

  • TheJMan41

    This guy is a Schizophrenic. He is as blatant a Marxist as “Criminally Minded Crooked Hillary”!!! Trump’s Integrity is way above Clinton’s by a factor of 100 to .001!!! It is interesting that those who see themselves as so righteous seem to always choose the one with the “Crooked Character”!!!

    I am too tired of reading the on and on resume’s of who we should dislike and distrust and why we should dislike and distrust them. It is my New Years resolution to just dislike and distrust anyone and everything that does not begin with, President Donald J. Trump has kept his promise to ‘Make America Great Again’. Frankly, I’m just sick of hearing from the haters that live to Hate and the Liars who live to Lie. I am a grown adult that has made it to an age where I do not give a rats patooty what anyone else thinks about how I should live my life or what I should think about any issue regarding our country and government. This is yet another story about a moron who has, at some time in life, been given the idea that his opinion matters to all that walk upright on their own. So PLEASE…………..for the love of America and God, stop the insanity of thinking that WE, the Deplorables and supporters of our President, Donald J. Trump, want to hear these constant reports of or history of ignorant, nobody, political commentators or whatever they want to be called . Their opinion or thoughts on any subject matters not to the majority of Americans. If they don’t like it here there are planes and boats leaving American soil several times every day. Leave Already! You will be Happy and WE will be Happier.

    Hillary represents so many bad things, I could not vote for her. She lies a lot and blame everything and everybody for her loss. I think her lying lets her skip punishment when she should be in prison for what she and billboy has done to our country along with the idiot obomb!

  • John D

    Bret Stephens is about as liberal as Krugman. And just as big a fool.

  • Dan Meyer

    The NY Times and all media are scared Trump will tell the truth about this:

  • Red Ryder

    He’s NO “conservative,” but a stark raving lunatic of a liberal. ANYONE who wants Hillary Clinton to be President has got their head screwed on upside down!!!!

  • usncb

    NOT a true conservative, AND who the hell cares what he thinks, or who he likes or dislikes. He does not run the world. He is NOTHING ! If he came up missing, who would care, Obungler ?

  • curmudgeon VN Veteran

    No such animal as a NYT Conservative. You believe in that and you also believe in unicorns and honest democRAT politicians.

  • Robert

    President Trump is doing exactly what he said he would. It’s refreshing to have a President who wants to keep his promises. I voted for him and would gladly do so again. He is trying to get this Country back on track with little help and a lot of resistance.
    The Alt Left has made it clear that they prefer lawlessness and illegals, Terrorists and high Taxes to a great America.
    Full Speed ahead President Trump.!!!

  • Stephen Pettine

    Bret Stephens is no Conservative but is obviously a silly pussy-footer tiptoeing through the manured fields of tulips. In a tossup between Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton he would choose the latter, old blatantly corrupt ethically and morally Hilary.
    Now, that speaks volumes relating to Stephen’s credibility.

  • Philomena

    Donald J. Trump is a GOD send. If Hillary Clinton was elected president our USA would be ruined for ever. Corruption would be rampant in Government. Just look at what FBI Comey, Peter STRZOK etc.
    FBI agent Peter Strzok’s texts with Lisa Page disparage …
    http://www.cbsnews.com/news/peter-strzok-lisa-page-texts-trump-idiot
    CBS News has obtained texts sent by former Special Counsel investigator Peter Strzok to his colleague Lisa Page, a senior FBI lawyer who was also working ..

  • DrBarbara

    Bret Stephens~~ Sir, you are either completely delusional or overcome with PC rules….. or maybe they are both the same thing. I am proud to be a conservative, patriotic Christian and unafraid to tell anyone who wants to hear! Our Pres. Trump did that! And he did it by listening to US and saying it like it is. I for one, am very glad that we don’t have to worry about being PC or hurting the libbie’s “widdle biddy feewings.” Thank God for Pres. Trump!

  • Henry Gregg Nash

    Hate shouldn’t be a substitute for truth! If you can’t be truthful with journalism, You need to get out!

  • kassa1

    Stephens is a Mitch McConnell conservative, that is he wears the clothes of a conservative on the surface , underneath nothing but a America, middle class, Christian hating , communist AKA democrat!

  • DJ

    Finally a column that speaks the truth!

  • Micah Chastain

    Who does this guy think he’s fooling? He sure ain’t no conservative!

  • gotcha1

    This dipstick, Brett Stephens, is jumping on the band wagon like all the rest of the liberal rags because it is the only way they can actually sell their snake oil journalism! The National Enquirer has more truth than this guy or that ten cent rag he works for. What they don’t like is how Trump has Trumped them all! He rants on twitter and THEY respond! Showing their hand!!! They don’t like President Trump because he isn’t “political” and pander to the congressmen like the rest of those cowards in government! We finally have a president that is not liked by either party and the reason is he is doing the business for the people of this country and not the “politicians”! The picture has gotten clearer!

  • mannasage

    Bill, Hilaryt & Obama belong in prison now, this guy is certainly not a conservative, he’s another liberal liar!!!

  • Ursus_Indomitus

    Calling the NYT fishwrap is insulting to fish.

  • Jack-RI

    In my opinion, Bret Stephens is nothing but a BOLD FACED LIAR! I truly believe that there is not one Republican/conservative who could vote for Hillary Clinton over any Republican running against her! I believe that he adjusted his political opinions to fit in better at the New York Times, who just happens to be in the pocket of the Democratic Party! I hope the New York Times paid him enough for his traitorous actions!

  • pace

    HATE is a mighty strong word. Can’t they take it down a notch?

  • David Greene

    You want to talk about Character and Culture? Let’s talk about the character of the media culture! Anything seems to be ok to get their byline out there. Truth is not the issue and they are very good at writing their opinions and passing them off as facts. That is not journalism. That is propaganda and is the reason so many Americans have tuned out “the Nightly News” regardless of the channel it in on! Who, what, when, where and how? Those are the facts I was taught in a basic writing class way back in high school. Most articles these days do not provide this information.
