The Country that Cried WOLF!!!

Updated on December 29, 2017

First there were those pesky working middle class Americans that were outraged with Washington's careless Trillions of debt, with their passing of Obamacare that promised you could keep your doctors, that it would save middle class working families $2,500, which common sense told us was a bold lie.

They called those people the Tea Party movement, and that movement swept Democrats and Republicans alike out of office in 2010 and inserted 'outsider' politicians.


The Washington elite, those long tenured politicians who were on the take and long ago stopped serving the voter's interests, giving them lip service while selling the country out to the lobbyists, WallSt, and International interests, were afraid for their jobs.
So what did they do?


Democrats Attempt to Link Tea Party to Nazis

A fundraising appeal from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee titled, "Danger: tea party update" begins with this warning: "At one Tea Party rally this week, mobs chanted "Waterboard Obama, Waterboard Hillary! At another, radicals waved signs with Nazi symbols."
The e-mail concludes, "the Democratic Senate is the only thing holding back the right-wing House from implementing their radical agenda," repeating the word "radical." They have left themselves room to avoid a libel suit, but the implication is clear: members of the Tea Party are dangerous neo-Nazis.


After 2010 it became imperative to muzzle the movement and put and end to this populist effort, middle class Americans needed to be put back in their place, and the easist way to do that, was to label them extremists, racists, and generally the very things they least wanted to be associated with.

To be sure, they had plenty to attack Romney with in 2012, his openly bold stance against Abortion was not going to help him win any votes with women, his lack of ability to counter other accusations that had no real bite to them didn't help any either, but just to make sure enough people turned away from him, they took their shots at making sure a few folks got out there an planted the idea that Romney was the next Hitler.


The headline practically wrote itself: "Romney Endorses Hitler's Energy Policy."

It's worth noting that this wasn't Mr. Romney's first gaffe — not even his first Nazi-related gaffe. He raised eyebrows back in February when he kicked off his presidential campaign at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Mich. Aside from being an industrialist, Ford was also a notorious anti-Semite, awarded the Grand Service Cross of the Supreme Order of the German Eagle by Hitler.

And the media was back at it again, more than ever before, labeling Trump:

Eva Longoria compares Donald Trump to Hitler, blasts ‘emotional poison’ about Mexico
Donald Trump's nasty spiel about Mexicans is as toxic as the hate Hitler spewed, likening his words to one of the world's most evil dictators.
It's not the first time Trump has been compared to the German dictator.
Fher Olvera, a member of the popular Mexican rock band Mana, also invoked the Nazi Party.
"I haven't heard a speech so violent and so filled with hate since Hitler," Olvera said last week in Los Angeles.

Of course all these people comparing Trump to Hitler weren't around to hear Hitler's speeches, probably never listened to one of them, probably never read the Mien Kampf which left no doubts about what he wanted to do, and probably have no idea at all how Hitler rose from being part of a very small minority into Germany's leading polticial party, but lets not let facts get in the way of their version of reality.

The problem is, the media, and all those Progressives on the left that keep calling everyone and anyone who is white, or even Asian (see video below) and not pro-Demcorat as racist, sexist, bigots or in the case of polticians, Hitler.

They were calling Bush the next Hitler (take your pick, both Jr. and Sr. got hit with that label). Problem is, none of these people are close to being the next Hitler... they have more in common with Ghandi than Hitler when it comes right down to it.

Most non-extremist (hard left) Americans are getting tired of hearing it... if everyone is labeled the next Hitler, when the real one rolls around, during a time of real crisis, and real need in our Nation, the people will be blind to that fact... the media having cried wolf so many times before will be ignored, when for once, they should be heard.

Do you think we are confusing Patriotism, even Nationalism with Racism?

Consider the New Tax Law and how the Media has covered it

Its hard to believe people would rather believe the propaganda of "news" sources like CNN over simple math. How can they not understand that if our country goes from 35% (highest in the world) taxation on Business, to 21% (9% lower than Mexico for example) that this will bring back corporations and jobs?

The tax cuts for individuals are nice, but the real WIN for America (and all Middle Class workers) is the corporate tax break that will entice corporations to stay, and for those who left only because of economic realities which forced their hand to return to America.

More jobs means better wages as competition for workers increases, and businesses will be willing to pay those employees more because they are now being taxed a third less than what they were before.

The actions President Trump has taken in his first year that will benefit the American worker is more than what was accomplished by the previous two Presidents. Trump has done more for American workers by what he has kept America out of (Paris Accords which would have made taxation on individuals and corporations in America higher and the TPP which would have made America a less competitive and less viable place to HQ your business) than anything Bush and Obama accomplished for the American workers in the previous sixteen years.

Do you feel the Media goes to far with their bias against Trump?

      "... if everyone is labeled the next Hitler, when the real one rolls around..." Good point. I hadn't thought of that. I imagine it will be just like that. In fact, the real "Hitler" will probably be adored----especially by the Left. Chilling thought.

      A good article you've written here, Ken.

      I hate it when people use comparisons that low information people will believe. There is so much pain in the world, why heap distortion, misinformation and association with anything like Nazis or Hitler? It is despicable. Mr. Trump may be phony (if he has not changed as he claims) but he is nothing like the comparisons being made. Maybe, just maybe he has changed to come into his own as a politician. He thinks he knows how to get a few things on a better track. Those things cannot get any Worse. Our country will go the way of Greece in just a little while. We need some business sense and knowledge of economy to reverse our country's plunge into bankruptcy. When Ronald Regan became president so many people began to look positively on our country. Wouldn't it be nice to feel that way again? I believe so. I really liked your article. Thank you. Bob.
