Don’t Be Distracted – There Actually is REAL NEWS Today!

November 19, 2019. What’s the big news today?

The corrupt news organizations, fed by the Democrat machine, are still gyrating their shiny object of the month, the “Impeach Trump” drama. “Look over here, you dumb hicks! Trump! Trump! Ukraine! Trump!” Completely under the radar is the REAL news.

No, don’t be distracted. There is important unreported news today. Despite having a State Dept. that fights him at every turn; despite getting little if any support from top military brass; and despite having a national security apparatus that has been proven to be the source of an outright coup attempt – despite all that AND the daily pounding he takes in the press – President Trump’s outsider instincts have just about finished the corrupt regime of Iran president Hassan Rouhani and Ayatollah Khamenei.

With stellar background support from wing-man Rudy Giuliani and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Trump’s economic sanctions and withdrawal from Obama’s loony nuclear deal have damaged Iran’s economy so drastically that citizens are taking to the streets, protesting the increase in gas prices, the crumbling Iranian currency, runaway inflation and high unemployment. The Iranian regime has already blown through the pallets of cash that Obama sent them, buying rockets and ammo for their terrorist friends and additional centrifuges to refine uranium.

Trump is taking down the world’s biggest supporter of terrorism without firing a shot. Did you hear about it on CNN? Not a single word today. On MSNBC? Nothing. CBS News? Nada. Fox News? Just a very thin article buried deep in their website (at least 1 dead in riots). ABC News? A mention at the bottom of their world news web page, reporting that over 100 protesters were killed, maybe 200.

We are being manipulated by the news industry and the anti-Trump forces within our government. We, the American voting public, are taken for fools, not intelligent enough to digest real news.

You won’t hear anything about the Obama scandals, the Biden Ukraine debacle, the Clinton crimes (including the death of Epstein) or any other real news that might upset the elitists’ status quo. Nope, just more meaningless “shiny objects” to distract us and whip us into a tribal lather.

Don’t be a fool!

Brazil’s “Tea Party” – Takin’ It To the Streets

Brazil protestThe government has become too big, inefficient, costly and corrupt.  Citizens are oppressed and punished by heavy-handed government officials.  Promises made by the government have not been kept.  Taxes increase, but services diminish.  The health care system is broken.  Scandals arise daily, revealing government corruption in every corner.   The voters elected the nation’s first ____  president without proper vetting, and now regret it.   A land of astonishing natural resources and industrious people languishes in economic misery.

No, it’s not the United States.  It’s Brazil.

This week, frustrated Brazilians took to the streets.  What was the “one more drop” (Brazilian version of the straw that broke the camel’s back) that pushed citizens over the edge, uniting rich, poor and middle-classes in protest in the face of violent police pushback?  It was a twenty-cent increase in bus fare.  One more little spit in the public’s eye by a government class that has taken its power and control for granted.

It wasn’t only the relentless increases in taxes and fees.  It wasn’t just the massive spending on lavish sports facilities while hospitals and roads crumble.  Or the ubiquitous “palm-greasing” for political favors.  It was all the above, and finally “one more drop.”

One protester quoted in The Independent (UK) summed it up: “Our parents fought against the dictatorship, but then we went to sleep,” he admitted.   After an extended period of improving economic conditions and expanding personal freedoms and opportunities, Brazil’s government got too big for its britches.   “Now, finally, we’re waking up.”

Fortunately Brazil enjoys an aggressive and free press, who relish in pointing out the failures of their government.  Brazil’s first female president, Dilma Rousseff, a Marxist who battled the country’s ruling military junta before being catapulted to its highest elected office, now sees her popularity rating tumble.  After a prolonged silence, she has announced her intention to pursue reforms.

It seems the disrespect Brazil’s government shows its citizens is not so different from our own.  But our only resistance to date has been a small but persistent Tea Party, which is vilified by those who refuse to wake up.  In Brazil, the people are “taking it to the streets.”  Could it happen here?
