On April 26 at 10:46am Robert Reich said:
“This morning on a phone-in to “Fox and Friends,” Trump went on a half-hour paranoid rant — a chilling display of how unhinged, defensive, angry, vindictive, and bellicose he’s become. Listen to the whole bizarre interview, if you can bear it. Then pray this man is either impeached, thrown out of office under the 25th amendment, or, at worst, defeated in 2020, and that starting next January he faces a Congress that stops him from destroying this country. Don’t just pray; work hard to make it happen.”
Interesting that Reich is against Trump, because Trump and his supporters basically is saying the same thing and wants the same things he wants… There are a only a few differences, which I won’t go into in this article..
But Reich had his chance to try and do something when he was in power and like Trump, saw that it was harder then he thought… Except he quit and ran, instead of trying to fight the corruption in government.
Reich you need to stop being an arm chair quarterback and help him make changes instead of fighting against him… I’m sure he would take your call and have a meeting with you. You do have some good ideas. Or just shut up and keep running away or being a typical Clinton supporter that:
As far a Democrats go… hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil…
As far a Republicans go… Listen to all that evil, See all that evil, they are talking evil…
Your “buddies” the Clintons are at the top of list for most of the corruption.
So let’s get into the “paranoid rant — a chilling display of how unhinged, defensive, angry, vindictive, and bellicose“
First off I would like to say…. Trump is definitely not an English Major nor was he on his college debate team…
So what did Trump say that was incorrect?
Allow me to shed some light on the some of the subjects here…
I would call what is happening to America as “corporate brain washing”.
“The trend of media conglomeration has been steady. In 1983, 50 corporations controlled most of the American media, including magazines, books, music, news feeds, newspapers, movies, radio and television. By 1992 that number had dropped by half. By 2000, six corporations had ownership of most media, and today five dominate the industry: Time Warner, Disney, Murdoch’s News Corporation, Bertelsmann of Germany and Viacom. With markets branching rapidly into international territories, these few companies are increasingly responsible for deciding what information is shared around the world.
There are also major news organizations not owned by the “big five.” The New York Times is owned by the publicly-held New York Times Corporation, The Washington Post is owned by the publicly-held Washington Post Company and The Chicago Tribune and Los Angeles Times are both owned by the Tribune Company. Hearst Publications owns 12 newspapers including the San Francisco Chronicle, as well as magazines, television stations and cable and interactive media.
But even those publications are subject to the conglomerate machine, and many see the “corporatizing” of media as an alarming trend. Ben Bagdikian, Pulitzer-prize winning journalist, former Dean of the Graduate School of Journalism at UC Berkeley and author of The New Media Monopoly, describes the five media giants as a “cartel” that wields enough influence to change U.S. politics and define social values.”
That last paragraph sums it up…
As Thomas Jefferson said…
“The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers.”
Even back then, they had media bias.
There is no “Institutions of Democracy” it has become “Institutions of Lobbyists”. Whoever pays the most, gets their law or bill passed… That is why the everyone in Washington is fighting tooth and nail trying to take Trump down… So their gravy train won’t come to an end… How do you think all these politicians come out of office way richer than when they went in? Do your own research… and see a very small amount of them go to jail, even get fined or fired for it…
Case in point…
You will be amazed on how the Clinton playbook is the same from scandal to scandal…
“I didn’t know what I did was wrong…”, missing files, missing emails, lying to the public and not being held responsible, Playing by the rules, where they are slightly over the line, and not thinking twice about it, even though morally it was wrong, etc… etc…
Troopergate, Whitewater, Travelgate, Vince Foster, Paula Jones, Monica Lewinsky, Filegate, Benghazi, Clinton Foundation, Private Email Server, Uranium One, buying the DNC, taking Saunders nomination away, paying for the Russian dossier… etc… there is more… but I would need to setup a Wikipedia site just for this… Don’t even want to think how much all that investigating cost us… And who went to jail for any of this? Not the Clintons.
Look up the scandals up in Wikipedia…
And look at what the Democrats did to Henry Wallace in the 1944 Democratic Convention…
Has a Clinton / Saunders ring to it…
Only problem is, it took longer to find out what Hillary actually did.
In 1944 they did it right in front of the delegates… they moved for adjournment so they could cut deals and steal the delegate votes away from Wallace. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democratic_Party_vice_presidential_candidate_selection,_1944
Hillary just bought the DNC before she was nominated. Some say no effect, some say there was… I guess I would ask Bernie Saunders and his supporters…
And here is a big one… Guess who was the “Deputy Special Counsel of the Special Committee to Investigate Whitewater Development Corporation and Related Matters, which looks into allegations that President Bill Clinton and his wife, Hillary, took part in a fraudulent real estate deal.”
Come on, you know… The media’s most trusted name in truth and a valuable source of information… Oops… Sorry, I mean… not a leaker… James Comey…
Many people connected to the Whitewater company were arrested and charged with over 40 crimes, yet the Clintons remained unscathed. James Comey acknowledged that Hillary Clinton obstructed the investigation and destroyed evidence, yet he decided not to prosecute due to lack of “intent”.
Hmmm… sounds exactly like Hillary’s private email server investigation…
Did she had a private email server with classified information on it? YES
Allow her maid without a Security Clearance to print and read classified emails? YES
Said she did not know what markings were for classified emails and documents? YES
Transmitted classified emails on a private server? YES
Have IT personnel without a Security Clearance work on her computers? YES
Have IT personnel without a Security Clearance bleachbit her computers when the investigation started? YES
Have staff destroy Blackberrys and Iphones with hammers? YES
Pretend she didn’t know and didn’t get any training on how to handle classified information? YES
Have a former President talk to the head of DOJ, before the head of the DOJ, talked to the head of the FBI, before the head of the FBI, made a ruling on her case? YES
And again… James Comey acknowledged that Hillary Clinton obstructed the investigation and destroyed evidence, yet he decided not to prosecute due to lack of “intent”.
Really? And no one noticed this? Not even the mainstream media?
And you think what Comey says is the truth? That he isn’t a liar and leaker? Uh Riiiiigggghhhhttt… I have some land in Florida and bridge in Brooklyn for you to buy if you believe anything Comey says. He actually admitted he leaked information. Why? Because hardly anyone goes to jail for anything they do in Washington.
And the media and Reich think that Trump calling Comey out for being a liar and leaker is Trump giving a “paranoid rant — a chilling display of how unhinged, defensive, angry, vindictive, and bellicose”
Really? Have you people lost your ever loving minds here? It must be from drinking the Clinton Kool-Aid all these years.
I think there has to be more of a push for people to open up their minds and think. And not become media lemmings, by having their history and facts spoon fed to them in 3 min chunks.
Speaking of the media pointing the fingers at the wrong person…
The Dream Act and DACA
The House and the Senate has had 17 years to come up with a solution.
Then Obama tried to force them into doing something by creating an illegal law.
They didn’t try and have Obama impeached or have the law rescinded or for that matter even do anything about it.
Because the President can not make laws, he can only sign them into action or veto them.
So when Trump rescinded the illegal law, the corporate media, the House and the Senate all pointed their fingers at Trump.
And didn’t bother to explain to the people that:
1) Obama broke the law by bypassing the Congress. In May 2011, Obama acknowledged that he couldn’t “just bypass Congress and change the (immigration) law myself. … That’s not how a democracy works.”
2) Since April 2001 the original version of the DREAM Act was introduced into the House.
3) The House and the Senate basically has done nothing about it so Trump gave them 6 months to do something.
4) That Trump had every right to rescind the law.
5) Explain to the people the difference between “legal” and “Illegal” immigration.
Now it has been 6 months and they still have done nothing…
Again… not on the mainstream media, when they should be pounding the House and the Senate on why it isn’t done yet.
We are paying them to do nothing.
I want my taxes back.
And again… Trump giving a “paranoid rant — a chilling display of how unhinged, defensive, angry, vindictive, and bellicose”. Really?
So as you can see, the government is great at doing nothing and getting paid for it.
On 911 they (FBI, CIA, etc…) knew it was coming, but didn’t make an effort to do anything. Just like their “bosses” in the House and Senate.
Trump got elected because people are tired of the status quo and they are hoping he could do something… He’s in a huge battle which I don’t envy him for.
It’s corporate America… keep everyone fat and happy give them everything for free, while we steal money from the middle class. Oops I mean the “white working class” (white working class according to MSNBC.) Really? Talk about being racist… There are no Black, Hispanic, Asian, etc… working classes?
On MSNBC Rob Reiner said:
“fighting this last battle of the Civil War and those people who are the alt-right the white supremacist are hanging on for dear life and they’re using these propaganda tools”
Seriously… This is the narrative the corporate media is pushing…
Kinda like the pot calling the kettle black of you ask me. Your side is allowing anyone into the country, so you can give them everything for free so they will vote for your side… Sounds to me like your side is buying and keeping control of slaves. Except they aren’t Black now, they are Latino.
And our corrupt government still has control of all the “entitled people”…
Give me money, I can’t work (faking a problem or too fat to get off their ass).
Give me money, I can’t find a job (too lazy or why should I work.).
Give me free housing (because I’m owed it).
Give me food stamps (so I can buy candy and soda instead of food and get fat, so I can say I can’t work, or resell the food stamps to buy drugs).
Hillary Clinton’s comments during the 2016 election when she described half of Trump’s supporters as a “basket of deplorables” at a fundraiser. Clinton said they were “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic—you name it.”
What started the “Me Too” Movement? All the shenanigans by your “Hollywood Elite” Clinton supporters… Talk about the basket of deplorables, they are the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic ones. Hold on, I figured it out… It’s the basket of deplorables, calling the basket of deplorables, deplorable. Right out of the Democratic playbook, call the other side what in actuality, you, yourself really are.
CNN calling ANTIFA “American Heroes and compared them to WWII soldiers storming the beaches in Normandy.” When ANTIFA is actually says they are fighting the KKK, but they use the Nazis playbook and tactics to a tee.
Brainless idiots who can’t comprehend the difference between “legal” and “illegal” immigration. And don’t care about the law. Oh… we don’t need to follow them… we get to pick and choose.
Dumbocrats and some Retardicans, calling and screaming for new gun laws… when for some reason… nobody can figure out that all of the mass shootings except for one… happened after 1965 when President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Social Security Amendments of 1965.
Interesting fact… that apparently NO ONE can say there is a correlation between the two.
Deinstitutionalization… is the actual gun problem…
We allow mentally ill people to live among us instead of being under supervision and having no access to weapons. And states make it harder to put people in mental hospitals, they rather have them go to a counselor and rely on the mentally ill person to self medicate. In the hospital, they don’t allow you to self medicate, they make sure you are on your medications. The government decided it would be cheaper to throw them out of the mental institutions and have them live among us… Plus if they are in a mental hospital, they can’t vote for the Democrats. You know, vote for the people who set you “free”. I think they were trying to make up for the lie, that they set the blacks “free” during the Civil War.
People need wake up and do investigating on your own… All these media companies are owned by only a few people with agendas… Look it up on who owns what… Follow the money trail. It is corporations who want you to think a certain way… Just like they make you feel a certain way to buy their products… The investigative reporter as we have known in the past is few and very far between… Don’t be lemmings and follow the media down the path and over the cliff.
Trump being paranoid,unhinged, defensive, angry, vindictive, and bellicose?
I think not… Half of America is blind on what is going on in our country today…
I think it is because they have their heads up their butts and can’t see… Plus with your head up your butt, it only causes tunnel vision… if you catch my drift.
Here is a free book I recently found…
People should read this:
