Classic Example of Deceit by the Press


Excerpt from The Western Journal, September 21, 2018.

-“Last Thursday, The New York Times wrote a story that now bears the prosaic headline, “State Department Spent $52,701 on Curtains for Residence of U.N. Envoy.”

However, when it appeared, the headline read, “Nikki Haley’s View of New York is Priceless. Her Curtains? $52,701,” The Hill reported. Haley’s photo also appeared with the story, which claimed that the spending was done at the same time the State Department was cutting back in other areas.
Even the initial Times story noted that the decision to move the U.N. ambassador’s residence was made in 2016 and that the purchase was approved by the Obama administration.”

Let Him Without Sin Cast The First Stone

Even if it were true that at one time in his youth Judge Kavanaugh made someone feel endangered or uncomfortable, he still seems to be the most puritanical man in the world.

Shame on those who demonize him.  Shame on Senator Feinstein for being in possession of a letter accusing Judge Kavanaugh of misconduct and not bringing it up earlier during the Judiciary Committee's hearing.  Shame on all those who demonize him and ignore the thousands of people who have spoken well of his character.  Shame on those who are ignoring Judge Kavanaugh's qualifications based on his record.  Shame on those have turned the judiciary hearings into an embarrassing circus. 

I find it hard to believe that in this modern age we still burn witches, and not by the fundamental Christians on the right, but by the "puritans" on the left; those who over fifty years ago introduced us to raunchy speech, movies, and behavior.

It seems to me our two party system needs a giant overhaul. Not even children can act the way  our elected national representatives do. We need to draw back to the center, focus on good government, and stop acting as if we were in an extremely nasty divorce.
