The Left’s Problem With The Truth
I have over the last few days been watching the story of the FBI informant or spy placed in the Trump campaign, how the press has dismissed this and watched the left try to twist semantics of a word so they can try to blur the truth. This is not a recent phenomenon in only the US, we have seen a move by the media all over the world in this direction, people don’t look to the news any longer to get an idea of what the real news is, they turn to it to get a political view and justify their preconceived ideology and biased beliefs, and the people masquerading as newscasters are more than happy to oblige everyone. We used to expect this from the media controlled by tyrants, oppressive regimes, sadly it has come to the West and overtaken all of our media. This is the death of media as we knew it, it stems from the left’s problem with the truth.
Yesterday I was watching a great video of an ex-British reporter for BBC and other news sites, her name is Melanie Philips, I would highly recommend everyone watch here speech, gets into how she was run out of the news business because she believed the news should be the news, not a perception of news, and things should be reported honestly, not a narrative that sounds honest, but isn’t. The video is very long, but if you have time, I would highly recommend you watch it, it is enormously informative of what the media is trying to do, no longer are they the gateway of truth, they are now only the gateway of perceived truth, propagandist whose only goal is to get you to follow their ideology. She goes into detail how the left has pushed a narrative that has no bases in fact because of the left’s problem with the truth.
What you have today is news is directed to speak towards an ideology, the different sites collude to make sure the message is given in a correct manner, they can’t have someone going off in a different direction, then the talking heads take to the air, they give reports and act like they are giving us the breaking news, when in reality, all we are getting is propogandized talking points, if you dare question what is said, they will not tolerate it, rather will talk down, dismiss what you are saying, and in many cases cut you off.
Before I get into the story much further, I would like to clear the air, I don’t want someone to become mixed up, so was the FBI informant a spy, or just harmlessly gathering information, this is the crux of this whole problem, the best way to define this is look up what the meaning of a spy is:
Definition of spy
1: to watch secretly usually for hostile purposes
2: to catch sight of : see
3: to search or look for intensively —usually used with out
- spy out places fit for vending … goods
- —S. E. Morison
1: to observe or search for something : look
2: to watch secretly as a spy
The simple definition is to observe or search for something, or as item two said in the intransitive verb, “To watch as a spy.” There is a very good reason the definition of this term is trying to be changed, it has something to do with the law, one can’t simply send in spies without probable cause, and the political windfall from such a move against an opposition party would shake the Democratic party to its core with the scandal that would follow, so the press at direction of the leadership on the left are trying frantically to change the narrative to save their collective butts. The most dangerous thing right now is to have the facts out there; it will expose the left’s problem with the truth.
We see this move by the left with an interview on CNN with Alisyn Camerota interviewing Max Schlapp, every time he tried to point this out, she was not going to have it, moved to the point of cutting him off when she did not like the fact that he was pointing out the false narrative she was giving:
Let’s clarify this, an informant is a legal term, what they are is a spy, they are spying on the people they are paid to spy on, they then pass the information, thus the term informant, to the organization paying them. The problem is if this is admitted to in any way will cause a huge problem, so we instead see no give on this, they know, and all of us do, the second they do their whole house of cards will start to come crashing down. The truth is the truth, because of the left’s problem with the truth, it is not our obligation to aid them in this problem.
What we are seeing is the media in their death throes, like any other life, they will fight to survive, all life has a funny way of doing this. CNN, MSNBC, Newsweek and a host of other far leftist media has dug themselves such a hole they are in full panic mode, they know if they don’t figure out a way to spin themselves out of this hole, they will go down with the ship, that has to be fought at all cost.
We, the American people, can’t let this go, what you will hear are accusations that somehow we are disloyal to the FBI, but this has nothing to do with loyalty or disloyalty, this is just another attempt to try to keep criticism away, what we are asking for is the truth. This deflection is not new, it is an old and tried method by the press to stop criticism or questions, we all heard this for eight years under Obama. We were told if we questioned Obama we were disrespecting the office:
We then saw Obama’s pundits go crazy, claiming such a question was disrespecting the office, but you hear it every day against Trump:
And none of us forget what the White House Correspondents
dinner was like, the filth from a supposed stand up comedian, the acceptance that this type of thing is acceptable with the left.
But this disrespect is not just all; it is more a set up to try to unseat what we have voted in, that to the left is just not acceptable, to this end they are willing to throw out the constitution, the will of the people and the rule of law to get their way. I have been asked if China or Russia is the greatest threat to this republic, I had told everyone, “No, the greatest threat this nation faces is from within, I think that the liberal left is more a threat to this nation and the fabric upon which it was built then the Fascist were in WW2, the Communist were in the cold war!” The left’s problem with truth and facts, their willingness to distort and lie to push their liberal dogma, and yes, to them it is every bit a religion, one that they defend with the same zealotry as the most religious groups. In the end, when the facts do bear out what they are trying to spread, they find themselves in a bind due to the left’s problem with the truth
