USA Today Caught Grossly Manipulating Pew’s Report on Trump’s Global Approval

Who cares? He’s not their president. He’s ours. Furthermore, most of the world has been infected by the socialism bug, anyway, so much so they’re no longer qualified to render an opinion on a conservative leader of a sovereign nation.
When you’re the big kid on the block, the other kids automatically despise you. They decry your advantages, rail against your improvements, and applaud your weaknesses because a weakness for you is an advantage to them.
What they don’t realize or choose not to acknowledge if they do realize it is that when America does well, everyone does well. When America’s economy tanked in the 2000s, so did the world’s. When it skyrocketed in 2016 immediately following his election, so did the world’s.
Put simply, the world is stupid enough to hate that which is good for them because either A) They didn’t think of it or do it themselves and are angry and jealous; B) They’re so steeped in socialist mentality they think America should be divesting the fruits of its hard labors and giving it away to everyone else i.e. them and even though we are, it’s not enough so they want more; C) They know they screwed the pooch big time by letting in millions of illegal aliens, want our own country to suck as bad as theirs, and get angry because we’re tightening our borders rather than making the same mistakes they did.
 

Finally, the article was published by USA Today, a hugely liberal, anti-Trump RAG, so they cherry-picked Pew’s report like the deceptive Demoncraps they are, particularly when they lead off with the patently false, “President Donald Trump is deeply unpopular across the globe.”

Horse hockey.

Here’s what they missed in the Pew Research Center’s article, “Trump’s International Ratings Remain Low, Especially Among Key Allies

“Even though America’s image has declined since Trump’s election, on balance the U.S. still receives positive marks – across the 25 nations polled, a median of 50% have a favorable opinion of the U.S., while 43% offer an unfavorable rating.”
 
That’s actually a great deal higher than American’s opinion of Congress!!! People tend to have a dim view of their politicians. Very few are held in high esteem. So, taken in context, and compared to the last three presidents, Trump is doing just fine.
 
“In Germany, where just 10% have confidence in Trump, three-in-four people say the U.S. is doing less these days to address global problems, and the share of the public who believe the U.S. respects personal freedoms is down 35 percentage points since 2008. In France, only 9% have confidence in Trump, while 81% think the U.S. doesn’t consider the interests of countries like France when making foreign policy decisions.”
 
Translated: “You’re not giving us free stuff so we’re not happy with you.” Well, tough cookies. We’re not the world’s grandma and you shouldn’t expect us to be an easy touch. If you’re giving away free stuff to your own people, then that’s YOUR choice, YOUR policy. Don’t confuse your policies with our own. As for personal freedoms, the actual respect level is WAY UP. Sorry, but criminals, including illegal aliens, don’t have “personal freedoms.” They have rights under the law, which we will certainly respect as we process them for deportation.
“Critical views are also widespread among America’s closest neighbors. Only 25% of Canadians rate Trump positively, more than six-in-ten (63%) say the U.S. is doing less than in the past to address global problems, and 82% think the U.S. ignores Canada’s interests when making policy. Meanwhile, Trump’s lowest ratings on the survey are found in Mexico, where just 6% express confidence in his leadership.”
First, Canada only likes the U.S. when we give them free stuff.  After all, it’s Canada.  Look who they elected as their Prime Minister.  Trudeau is so far left he makes Pelosi and Feinstein look like hard right-wingers.
Second, of course we ignore Canada’s interest when making policy.  Canada is its own country.  Make your own damned policy.  And stop gouging us on trade tarrifs.  Jimmy Carter is right about your lumber tariffs.  Canada has a 270% duty tariff on dairy.  Let’s be fair, “Canada maintains these advantages over American producers not because of more efficient lumber production or superior technologies, but because of the subsidies they receive from their government.”  When the United States of America makes policy, we focus on our interests, not Canada’s.  We’re on to the way Canada creates unfair trade through government subsidies and they’re not happy about that.  Too bad.
 

“Around the world, publics are divided about the direction of American power: Across the 25 nations surveyed, a median of 31% say the U.S. plays a more important role in the world today than it did ten years ago; 25% say it plays a less important role; and 35% believe the U.S. is as important as it was a decade ago.”

This clearly says 6% more people around the world say the U.S. plays a more important role in the world today than it did ten years ago.  Furthermore, Pew’s article contains graphs which clearly show the U.S. isn’t the pariah USA Today makes us ought to be:

Bottom line, USA Today’s article clearly attempts to drive a wedge between U.S. voters and conservatives immediately prior to the Fall 2018 elections.  That’s it’s only motive:  Politics.  It wasn’t to information.  It wasn’t to discover.  It wasn’t to accomplish anything one might find on the list of “Right Things to Do In Journalism.”  Rather, it was simply to divide our country, an attempt to drive a wedge between We the People, a nation who voted for Donald J. Trump in 2016 to be our President, and Trump himself.  I’d say that meets no criteria of journalism at all.  USA Today’s article is nothing but propaganda.

CNN LIES AGAIN! Falsifies Hurricane Irma “Records”

I am SERIOUSLY doubting CNN’s “Worst Hurricane Ever” sales pitch. Sounds to me like they’re either trying to win the Most Over-Sensationalized Reporting of the Year Award or simply trying to keep what few viewers are left.
 
But let’s look at some of these so-called “statistics:”
 
1. Strongest Atlantic basin hurricane ever recorded outside the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea…
 
Irma had maximum sustained winds of 185 mph and a barometric pressure of 914 hPa (lower is stronger). While strong indeed, hurricanes CNN Irma LiesWilma, Gilbert, “Labor Day”, and Allen beat Irma, both in terms of sustained wind speeds and lower (stronger) pressure. Allen (August 5-9, 1980) was the strongest with 195 mph winds and a pressure of just 899 hPa.
 
As for strongest ever, that record belongs to 2015’s Patricia, at 200 mph winds and 880 hPa.
 
2. Longest Category 5 hurricane since satellite storm-tracking began…
 
Perhaps, but “Cuba” (November 5-8, 1932) beat Irma’s 75 hours, coming in at 78 hours as a Category 5 storm.
 
3. No storm on record has maintained winds 185 mph or above for as long as Irma’s 37 hours.
 
Perhaps true, but this is a REALLY obscure fact, and would require pouring over tons of raw and minute data not generally reported to the public.
 
4. It prompted the largest evacuation in the history of the Bahamas, and potentially the largest in the US.
 
Ok, first of all, the Bahamas has never had so many inhabitants as it does today, nor so many with the means to leave, so, DUH.CNN Irma Lies
 
Second, while 6.3 million people were ordered to evacuate, “The low estimates for the actual number of evacuees is 700,000 people” (Source: Boston Globe)
 
So, call it 1 million people who ACTUALLY evacuated.
 
Well, gee, you can order 30 million people to evacuated, but that’s not a “record.” Records are set by how many people actually evacuated, and that number looks to be roughly 1 million.
 
So, NO RECORD THERE…
 
5. 1.3 million people without power…
 
On July 13-14, 1977, 9 million people experienced a power outage in New York City. Hell, hurricane Sandy knocked power out to roughly 8 million people.
 
UPDATE (20170911-1630 hrs EDT):  The news is now saying “millions without powers” and refuses to specify numbers.  Technically, “million” is anything over 1 million.  However, I see they now added, “nearly 6 million people are without power.”  Ok, that’s substantial, and commensurate with the fact Iram stretched beyond both Florida’s east and west coasts while raking it south to north.  However, New York still has ’em beat.
Again: NO RECORD.
 
6. 15 feet of maximum storm surge…
 
“Katrina’s powerful right-front quadrant passed over the west and central Mississippi coast, causing a powerful 27-foot (8.2 m) storm surge…”
UPDATE (20170911-1630 hrs EDT):  News agencies are now saything that while a storm surge of 10 to 15 feet was projected, that the storm surge was “nowhere near that bad.”  So, what was it?  Seven feet?  Eight?
 
Again: NO RECORD.
 
7. 185 mph top strength…
 
NOPE! Tied with Wilma, Gilbert, and “Labor Day”, but beat by Allen.
 
Again: NO RECORD.
 
8. “95% of all buildings that Irma damaged when it hit Barbuda…”
 
Sorry, CNN, but damage to small islands enroute to the U.S. does not count. I really don’t care how many huts were blown down.
 
As for damage to Florida’s buildings, it looks like nearly all the buildings designed to withstand hurricane-force winds…
 
…actually withstood hurricane force winds.
 
Again: NO RECORD.
 
Was Irma big? Yes. Was it fast? Yes. Did it cause significant storm surge? Yes.
 
But it wasn’t the biggests, fastest, floodiest hurricane on record, nor will it be the most expense. Nothing will top Katrina’s $108 billion price tag, although Sandy and Harvey came within $40 billion of doing so.
 
CNN, you’re caught LYING YOUR ASS OFF yet again!
Meanwhile, ABC’s news report, Hurricane Irma, By the numbers, is a far more appropriate piece of journalistic integrity.

LGBTQ – Should We ‘Live and Let Live’ or Should We Stand Firm?

A friend of mine stated this morning on Facebook, “As for the LGBTQ crowd, I have a ‘Live and Let Live’ policy.  We all should follow that.”
I’m sorry, my friend, but I follow God of the Bible, and Jesus Christ, who showed us the way. In particular, with the adulteress at the well, he loved her (saved her from being stoned to death, no less!), but he did not allow her to persist in her sin: “Go, and sin no more.” Our Bible: “Male and female he made them,” yet the LGBTQ crowd wants us to believe there are a dozen or more genders? Phooey. I do not accept that because God’s word says that’s false.  It also says homosexuality is a sin, an “abomination before the Lord” in Romans chapter 1, clear as day.  Unless, apparently, you’re blinded by sin.
 
I accept the Bible.
 
Along with the Bible, I also accept the Constitution: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…”
 
In highlighting and denouncing the sins of this small segment of society who demands that We the People pay for their elective medical care, I am freely exercising my religion, one which God’s word clearly indicates what we all are to do:
 
“In the first four chapters of 1 Corinthians, Paul introduces a shameful problem in the church. The Corinthians proudly attach themselves to certain leaders, whose teaching seems to disclose a “wisdom” not known or taught by other teachers, and certainly not by Paul or his fellow-apostles. These cliques and factions are undermining the unity of the church and are a denial of the gospel of Jesus Christ. In chapters 5 and 6, Paul calls attention to two other problems plaguing the church: immorality and lawsuits.
 
“Chapter 5 is not actually about the immorality of one church member, as much as it is about the pride and passivity of the entire church in response to this sinner. It is not until the end of chapter 6 (verses 12-20) that Paul exposes the evil of immorality.”
 
“Live and let live” is a secular — and sinful — approach to the problem, which is the fact that that the LGBTQ group not only wants everyone to adopt the “live and let live” mentality towards them, but they want us to believe that it’s somehow good.
 
It is not good. Adultery is not good. LGBTQ is not good. Abortion is not good. Murder is not good. They are ALL SIN.  Not only does the Bible state, “hate that which is evil; cling to that which is good,” but I refuse to allow my tax dollars to pay for evil i.e. their indulgence in sin.
 
“Live and let live?” Phooey! That’s how Rome fell. I worked too hard supporting and defending my Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic to allow America to fall to either class of enemies, especially while being being aided and abetted by foolish Americans who are suckered into a “live and let live” attitude, much less an, “Oh, let’s help them!” attitude.
 
No.
 
True, this is America, and people are free to sin against themselves and god it they want to, even with other consenting adults. If they want to engage in evil, then they can damned well create pools of funds out of their own pockets to pay for their sin, but I’ll be damned if I’m going to allow them to further their evil with my tax dollars or parade their sin around our nation’s public schools as “good” when God Himself says “sin is evil.”
 
That’s not only foolishness, but it’s how countries fall, how they are rotted from within.
 
Not on my watch.

How To Infiltrate Demoncrap Networks and Get Them to See Reason

Yes, it’s a HUGE uphill challenge.  Most Demoncraps have been inundated with contrived news stories, tons of well-crafted lies, and volumes of misinformation from their primary brain-sucking news feeds for so long they’re no longer able to separate the chaff from the wheat, able to recognize right from wrong, what’s factual from what’s pure donkey kong, etc.
Then again, they just might be idiots.
It’s time to infiltrate the anti-American idiot’s network, and bring them down. Sign up, but please do NOT use your FB logon creds… That would require a facepalm! Instead, pick some names out of the phone book, a first name here, a last name at least several pages distant, and create a completely fictitious e-mail address (most e-mail addresses are, in fact, not representative of anyone’s actual name nor any part thereof). Then, sign up with that.
 
Once you’re in, post comments like, “Ok, I hear what you’re saying about X, but what about Y and Z? I mean, both Y and Z are established facts. We can’t exactly toss them out the window just because we’re trying to shove X down America’s throat, can we?”
 
By doing so, you imply camaraderie with the individual’s support for X (which is often largely fictitious) but are expressing genuine concern about real issues Y and Z, hopefully posted with links, which force them to read something about Y and Z, preferably from a politically neutral site, until such time as they either blink three times and realize, “Oh,” or they fall short and relapse into troglodyte “to hell with Y and Z!” fashion.
 
If you reach one of the “Too hell with”-ers, leave them be. As Don Quixote noted quite well, it’s like tilting against windmills.  They’re not worth your time or effort.  If you’re on FB, BLOCK them.  If you’re on a vBulletin site, put them on “ignore.”  You don’t have to advertise the fact, even though I did go so far as to put, “Ignore status:  x, y, and z” just so that those on ignore would get it, along with everyone else.
 
But if you reach someone what pulls up short with an, “Oh,” then you’ve come across a thinker, someone in the Demoncrap party who actually has a brain, but who has until this time simply been so absorbed into the Demoncrap pipeline, such as their 92.06% cornering of the news market such that no real, objective news ever gets through.
 
But you’ve managed to reach them with a bit of reality, on the Internet, via a message forum, discussion board, whatever.
 
Good.
 
Now’s the time to repeat the somewhat diminutive approach of trying to appeal to what’s left of their intellect without offending them into a full-on offensive mind-closed response such as we saw when Demoncraps galore were stealing (or trying to steal) Trump signs out people’s front yards.
 
Believe it or not, I find Demoncraps actually respond far better to this line of inquiry than any sort of direct confrontation that gives them an out by being able to label you as a “conservative,” “Trump-lover,” “Republican,” etc. HOWEVER, as long as you don’t cross their intellectual threshold and can actually remain “inside their reaction line,” you have a FAR greater probability of emotional and political impact than if they identify you as an outsider to the point where they cut you (and your input) off altogether.
 
So, when you’re signing up for these groups, please take the time to fill out your profile with comments like, “I’ve voted for every Democrat candidate since Roosevelt. The second one.” No, don’t use that one, it’s mine. 🙂
And sadly, many Demoncraps are far too gone having been sucked into the idealisms and lies of the Demoncrap party to ever see the light of reason.  I would name names like “Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton,” and many others, but to be honest, Demoncraps don’t have any sort of hold on wrongdoing within our federal government.  Countless Independents and Republicans have ABUSED their position the same as have the aforementioned names.

There are dozens of websites out there offering absolutely objective oversight given the fact that they apparently hate everyone.  Again, you’re going to have to sift through the chaff and the wheat, but at least with these websites, you HAVE chaff through which you can sift, unlike through mudstream media’s usual “slant the hell out of it” news stream.

By the way, here’s the Demoncrap Underground website from which more than half of this shit is festering like a damned wound.  Dive in, right the wrongs, and let’s nuke this propaganda shit clean off Mother Earth in it’s entirety.
