The real news behind the fake news
Sometimes, there is real news behind the fake news. For example: members of his own political party are demanding that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo resign. Will he resign? Probably, not. If Virginia Governor Ralph Northam did not resign after being caught wearing black face in a KKK-style skit, letís face it; Democrats rarely resign.
So, if Cuomo wonít resign, why are the Dems after him? Because, by hounding Cuomo, the Dems can claim "clean hands" as they try to reopen the groundless sexual harassment case against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. See how this works?
Frankly, no one knows for sure about wearing masks or getting vaccinations, or not. The science is not clear as yet. But thatís not the real story. The real story is to keep the Wuhan Virus (Covid-19) at the top of the news between now and the congressional elections in 2022.
Recall, in 2020, the Wuhan Virus helped put the Biden Regency** in office. The Democrats, like magicians, need to distract the "casual news reader or TV viewer" from the steps they are taking toward achieving the Socialist Utopia of their dreams. (Cynical political consultants and pollsters sometimes use the term "casual readers and TV viewers" as a euphemism for "the gum-chewing, mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging public.")
Even headlines can be used to misinform the "casual" reader. A recent headline read: "Biden White House caught flat-footed over border crisis." Flat-footed? Surely, the headline writer knows the Biden Regency** created border crisis on purpose.
Take military affairs: The MSM tell us the Chicoms are about to invade Taiwan. Despite bellicose statements by the Chicoms, the Taiwanese and the Chicoms accommodate each other with trade and technology. If the Chicoms invade Taiwan and the Biden Regency** only files a stern note with the U.N., Biden* would be swept out of office sooner, rather than later. No way the Chicoms nor the Russians want Biden* out of the Oval Office. Ergo: the Taiwanese can relax, for now.
The MSM say the mean Republicans oppose the rebuilding of a rusting America. If the so-called Infrastructure legislation before Congress was actually about building roads, bridges, sewer systems, electrical grids, canals, water-storage reservoirs, etc., it would have passed long ago. Instead, the intent is to spend money we do not have and even our great grandchildren wonít have on social-welfare programs.
Stories suggesting the long-completed Durham Report will be released serve to supply just a glimmer of hope to conservatives who want someone brought to justice over the four-year-long "insurrection" waged to drive President Trump from office. The Biden Regency** will never let the Durham Report, if it hasnít already been shredded, see the light of day. But the stories serve to keep law-and-order folks focused on the ballot box and not the ammo box.
All too often, we miss the real story behind the fake story. We used to have Rush Limbaugh to sort this stuff out. Sadly, Rush is gone.
