ELDER PATRIOT – In today’s political landscape history and facts do not matter. People have polarized themselves along ideological lines and they gladly latch themselves onto any “facts” that may support those beliefs even if the competing evidence is overwhelming.
The mainstream media, which is wholly owned by the same corporations that leverage incredible influence over our government, uses this to distort history and truth in order to advance a pro corporation agenda.
Yesterday’s assault by Politico on Ben Carson is a prime example. Whether Carson misrepresented himself about an appointment to West Point or there was an honest misunderstanding as to what he said should be immaterial for a very good reason; “what difference does it make now?” At the end of the day the issue in question pales in comparison to the multiple scandals of the person who leads the opposition party’s presidential nominating process.
His leading Democrat opponent, the darling of the Rockefeller Mediacracy, has been caught lying to the American people about national security issues and exposing state secrets to hackers by using a non-secured personal email server in violation of the Espionage Act and that resulted in the deaths of at least four Americans. For her adoring mainstream media Hillary Clinton’s response in front of a Senate Subcommittee investigating the disaster that occurred under her watch at our embassy in Benghazi “what difference does it make now” sufficed to end their curiosity.
Why isn’t the mainstream media questioning how Hillary Clinton amassed a net worth in excess of $32 million while earning less than $195,000 for at least 10 of the last 15 years? Doesn’t her amazingly sudden accumulation of wealth coupled with the deliberate exposure of top-secret information at least demand a question or two?
As the Obamacare exchanges are collapsing in bankruptcy across the nation leaving millions of people without health insurance why isn’t Mrs. Clinton being asked what her vision of nationalized healthcare was when she first introduced the concept during her first term as First Lady?
Where is the sense of proportionality by the media? By design there is none. And the poor people who ask few questions beyond what the mainstream media tells them remain convinced that liberalism will be their salvation allowing them to continue voting for their own demise with a sense of righteousness.
