The true enemy of this country, and probably the most dangerous, is the liberal American media. Their manipulation of the gate-keeping of the news is not only stunning in its scope but also in its hubris. Without a free and impartial press that reports the truth, based on facts, a society’s security is in peril.
Virtually all the major broadcast new organizations have chosen to ignore what would undoubtedly be the blockbuster story of the decade if it were created during a conservative administration. Yes, ‘GruberGate’.
But this is just another in a long line of stories about events these past six years that would impact negatively on Obama and liberals in general had they been honestly reported. The list is here.
Most were barely covered and when they were they were always spun to reduce the negatives on Obama.
The genius of our forefathers should never be debated. Thomas Jefferson wrote to William Duane in 1811;
“I think an editor should be independent, that is, of personal influence, and not be moved from his opinions on the mere authority of any individual. But, with respect to the general opinion of the political section with which he habitually accords, his duty seems very like that of a member of Congress. Some of these indeed think that independence requires them to follow always their own opinion, without respect for that of others. This has never been my opinion, nor my practice, when I have been of that or any other body. Differing on a particular question from those whom I knew to be of the same political principles with myself, and with whom I generally thought and acted, a consciousness of the fallibility of the human mind, and of my own in particular, with a respect for the accumulated judgment of my friends, has induced me to suspect erroneous impressions in myself, to suppose my own opinion wrong, and to act with them on theirs.”
While acknowledging our fledgling Republic needed an honest Press to provide the Truth he also warned of its abuse;
“No experiment can be more interesting than that we are now trying, and which we trust will end in establishing the fact, that man may be governed by reason and truth. Our first object should therefore be, to leave open to him all the avenues to truth. The most effectual hitherto found, is the freedom of the press. It is, therefore, the first shut up by those who fear the investigation of their actions.” –Thomas Jefferson to John Tyler, 1804

The Truth. It’s the pinnacle, the peak. Nothing can be greater than the Truth. It’s an absolute. It is the ultimate power. Whoever wields it will ultimately win and that is why so many claim to have it.
Every human event has an ultimate truth at its end. Some are easy to see and prove. Others, no matter how thoroughly distilled, must be perceived with a final leap of faith—-like believing in God.
The current American political landscape has been awash in untruths being sold as truths. Lies and deception have been used as a means to an end.
The recent revelations by Jonathan Gruber prove just how powerful the truth is. His stunning admission that if Americans knew the truth about Obamacare they never would have accepted it and its success relied on utter lies being told to a ‘stupid’ electorate.
Truth is immortal, it cannot be destroyed. It can be hidden, slandered, defamed and libeled but it will always rise up. It may take years, decades even a millennia but it will triumph.
Obama’s lies are revealing themselves, thankfully sooner rather than later. After being crushed for the past six years the Truth is rising up again. Ascending to its rightful place atop the moral landscape of humankind.
Those who speak untruths will ultimately falter. We must seek to replace them with leaders who are not afraid of the real Truth because, like my belief in God, I have faith that the Truth will set us free.

The Romney campaign needs to start the narrative that the Obama administration has been lying to the American people all along—the attack on our consulate in Libya being the latest example.
Romney needs to come out and say as president I will never lie to you. I may tell you things that are hard to hear but it will always be the truth.
An ad could list all of Obama’s biggest lies of the past year using the most damning images possible and ending with the Libyan attack. It’s time to take the gloves off.

I don’t know much about the actor Don Cheadle. Off the top of my head I can’t even tell you any movies he’s been in. I know he’s black and he seems to be an affable guy every time I’ve seen him in some celebrity situation.
Last night he got into a tweeting jag regarding NBC’s explanation/apology for the deceptive editing of the 911 call involving George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin. There is a quote from him that should become the rallying cry for all who value the truth and seek honesty; “truth doesn’t need help”.
We seem to have forgotten that simple principle here in the age of mind-boggling media bias.
It won’t change until people like Don Cheadle everywhere demand the media change. I’ve posted on this before. Stop using the mediums that distort the truth. I don’t take the Palm Beach Post anymore and I don’t watch the network news. When enough people do the same, we will facilitate change.
