The Truth Of The Matter

Journalism is not truth-telling; it is an art form subject to the whims of the writer, editor, and publisher. It is a narcissistic endeavor that demand’s applause — consequently, the employment of almost truthful and just about factual are acceptable aims. In the newsprint business, salacious reporting often begets readership, which prompt advertising dollars that initiates more of the same. If on the other hand, reporting is actual, real, and free of hyperbole, but boring the eyeball count (readership) could decrease, affecting gross revenue.

The published characterization of “news” versus opinion has decidedly merged within the New York Times and competitor newspapers. The moral obligation of leftist progressives (in the interest of limiting Trump to one term) is to propagate and persuade the reader or the viewer to the acceptance of their biased political view. For these pretenders of editorial virtue, facts are subject to interpretative predisposition while truths subordinate to the whim of a capricious perspective.

The politically inspired righteousness of the writers, reporters, and jabber mouth critics believe that it is a reporter’s amoral obligatory, to pummel the president with scurrilous accusations while in disproportion lavish the Democrats with a panegyric gesture or two, even three.

Since the election of 2016 anti-Trump hysteria is the Democratic Party’s meaningfulness: Purposeful distortion of the truth, misleading innuendos, blatant conflicts of interest, inventive third-party derived rumors, interrogatories of libelous intent, baseless accusations, and forked-tongue deception. These descriptive(s) are the politically inspired lifeblood of today’s Democrats; the party has no hesitation, concern, or second thoughts as to the collateral damage incurred. Nothing is of consequence except for the ridding of Donald Trump.

Yesterday the crisis de jour was Russia today its Ukraine tomorrow only the Democrats know; though it all the president preservers.

Tax, Spend, and Defraud

Governing in the United States denotes a particular instinctual given a historical symbiosis. There is a proportional within the act of taxation and the power of government — the more egregious the tax and ambiguous the respective laws, the more coercive the governing authority. There is a sensitive proportionate between a free market economy, regulatory rules, the cost of litigation, and the degree of one’s liberty.

The ability of government to lawfully tax an individual’s income (by any amount) at the whim or discretion of any Congressional administration jeopardizes the meaningfulness of liberty.  On the other side of the same issue of taxation is the politically exploitative, seedy, dishonest distribution of tax revenue. Government, all governments, including America’s, are susceptible to mendacious and deceitful behavior, in the interest of the Republic, one must never consider otherwise.

In the present, Congress operates within the complexities of a process-orientated bureaucracy. One that functions on the self-perpetuating inertia of the legislative branch; these bureaucracies demand a significant amount of operating independence, as well as, enforcement discretion. It is this bureaucratic progression that delegate delineates, defers, infers, enforce, negate, and often ignore prudence in favor of the typical modus operandi.

An overly regulated economy is wonk encumbered, differentiated by multi-source uber-bosses, excessive counter-affirmed requirements, and enough paperwork to harvest a forest. The result of such is the creation of an administrative system that is difficult if not improbable to remission or disband.

Human beings manage. As a consequence, trust is forbidden and askance the necessary safeguard of liberty. The most significant internal threat to the republic is statutorily compliant corruption perpetrated in the main by officers of the court, licensed intermediates, the elected, the appointed, and the Machiavellian(s).

One must keep one’s eye on the bouncing factoids.
