Our right to free speech is threatened most often not by government or laws. It’s threatened by fear. Legitimate, real fear that merely expressing an opinion that isn’t shared by all will be met with reprisals.
US Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Caroline) had a nice series of Tweets on today’s quite sickening White House press conference which I’ve embedded below.
In my opinion, Senator Graham nails it. Mainstream media journalists in the US have deluded themselves into thinking that they should be, and are part of the Resistance.
What I saw today was so-called journalists trying to make themselves the story rather than doing their jobs. They have the distinct privilege of being able to ask questions of President Trump and instead of asking questions that everyone might want to hear the answers to, they’ve decided to turn this into their own soap box where they ask loaded, partisan questions that serve only to elevate their own agendas.
You are journalists. Do your job.
It’s finally election day in the US. Sadly, in spite of the fact that the campaigns for _this_ election are now over, the campaigning for 2020 is just beginning. The US election campaign is never-ending and a permanent fixture.
Will the Republicans hold onto the Senate and the House? Will Democrats make gains and start the push back against the Trump Presidency? We’ll find out tonight…
No matter what happens, it will be more of the same political games for at least two more years.
