My Bride and I finished up the Jacob Bronowski Series “The Ascent of Man” – not having seen it in several decades. The learned Professor used episodes to detail his views of human development from the early time in Earth’s History until the year before his death in 1974. The series was made the year earlier in 1973.
Most poignant to me was in his last episode when he summarized human existence as relating to human ability to process information and the importance of what History teaches us about how to deal with the future. He expressed the fear that the Giants of Literature and Science in the past might have their works become the ‘fossils’ of information to be ignored by future generations. Repeatedly he used words such as integrity, ethics and morals.
It led me to remember the letter by Emile Zola written to the President of the French Republic in 1898. In the letter he decried the injustice done to a Jewish French Officer by false accusations that landed the innocent man in prison.
There are lessons to be learned from injustices but that does not mean the injustices cease. In fact, they are roaring ahead daily in our own Country. One of them was the two years spent attempting to oust the American President, Donald Trump, from office. Even though this was all revealed to be an internal coup attempt by Government Agency officials loyal to the Democrat Party, the accusations continue and are becoming more abundant.
How are we to view whether what the President is being accused of is truthful when so much of it has been debunked? But that does not stop those in this Country from continuing an attempt to overthrow the elected leader.
Wisdom might be relegated to the dustbins of History but the Falsehoods presented to the American people come fast and furious from what is in print and televised media, and in the Halls of Government. Let’s look at print media first. Take a look at the cropped screengrab I got from the Drudge Report on October 13, 2019.
This is the top headline posted on the news link aggregate – a website that links to national and world news sources. The headline is linked to a news story written by a Deb Reichmann and reported on the news site, The Associated Press.
It appears that this headline is meant to convey significant impact on America simply by its wording. But, not being one to allow History to become a ‘fossil’, as Mr. Bronowski specified, I decided to do some digging. And when I dig, as I’ve done in detail since the New York Twin Towers came crashing down – I am once again presented with outright deceit and the abandonment of Truth.
The article is meant to tell America that Donald Trump should be removed from office for criminal behavior. Shall we see what criminal behavior she refers to?
From her article:
By the time staffers in the Situation Room got the president of Ukraine on the phone at 9:03 a.m., Trump had just finished firing off tweets claiming complete vindication from former special counsel Robert Mueller’s congressional testimony the day before about the Russia investigation. On the call, Trump was first to speak. He showered the 41-year-old Ukrainian, a novice politician and former comedian, with praise following his party’s victory in parliamentary elections. Zelenskiy chatted about how he wanted to “drain the swamp” in Kyiv and how he wished the European Union would provide more financial support. He told Trump that Ukraine was ready to buy more Javelin anti-tank missiles from the United States.
The next 10 words that came out of Trump’s mouth — “I would like you to do us a favor, though” — are what triggered the House impeachment inquiry that has imperiled his presidency.
Trump asked Zelenskiy to work with Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and Attorney General William Barr to look into Biden and his son, who served on the board of a Ukrainian gas company.
Well, that’ pretty damning isn’t it? But is it the Truth?
Here are the words of the President directly from the phone call transcript:
- t:;'HP) The· President: I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike ... I guess you have one of your wealthy people... The server, they say Ukraine has it. There are a lot. of things that went on, the whole situation .. I think you’ re surrounding yourself with some of the same people. I would like to have the Attorney General call you or your people and I would like you to get to the bottom of it. As you say yesterday, that whole nonsense ended with a very poor performance by a man named Robert Mueller, an incompetent performance-, but they. say a lot of it started with Ukraine. Whatever you can do, ·it's very important that· you. do it if that's possible.
Did Trump ask the Ukraine Leader to investigate Biden and his son in that statement?
The writer of the article is a four-letter word; LIAR.
But, let’s dig a little deeper.
During the Ukraine call, several others listened in. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Keith Kellogg, national security adviser for Vice President Mike Pence, were on the call. It’s unclear if they were at the White House or listened in on “drop” lines, secure hookups top officials can use from outside the White House.
Others who typically would have listened in would have been the president’s national security adviser, John Bolton, or his deputy, Charles Kupperman, who have both left the White House; the NSC’s director of Russia and Europe, who currently is Tim Morrison; the NSC’s Ukraine expert; and possibly someone from White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney’s office.
Lawyers who handle NSC issues include John Eisenberg and his deputy, Michael Ellis. It’s unclear what, if any, role Ellis played, but the former counsel for the House Intelligence Committee has been in the spotlight before.
Is the following definitive evidence of wrongdoing?
It’s unclear if they were at the White House or listened in on “drop” lines, secure hookups top officials can use from outside the White House.
It’s unclear what, if any, role Ellis played, but the former counsel for the House Intelligence Committee has been in the spotlight before.
To a Liberal, Trump-hating ‘journalist’ (sic), “unclear” things are worded in a way to imply wrongdoing because if they told the Truth they would be out of a job in the Leftwing Media Hierarchy.
Now she talks about what the Whistleblower reveals:
Somewhere during this sequence, people privy to the call questioned whether Trump was pressuring the Ukrainian leader to investigate the Bidens. Trump has denied that he did and publicly released the telcon recounting what was said on the call.
He released it after a whistleblower, a CIA officer, filed a complaint about the call with the intelligence community’s inspector general. “In the days following the phone call, I learned from multiple U.S. officials that senior White House officials had intervened to lock down” all records of the phone call, the whistleblower wrote. “This set of actions underscored to me that White House officials understood the gravity of what had transpired in the call.”
To put it bluntly, there is no “there” there. All of the Whistleblower complaint and this entire article is doubletalk, meant to influence the weak-minded Liberals who will march in the streets, calling for Trump’s head.

Moving on to televised Media reporting.
Jim Acosta, spoiled brat CNN Media Darling and consummate Liar, addressed the activities outside a Trump rally held in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Real Journalist Beth Bauman reveals his lies in her follow up article:
"2020 will be 2016 all over again and then some. Bashing immigrants, stoking hatred of the press, protesters being ejected, fringe viewpoints, and police in riot gear... all on display at Trump’s rally in MN," he said on Twitter.
If you paid attention to real reporting it was the anti-Trump protesters, including Anfita, causing the ruckus. The Trump followers were peaceful and started no problems. Only those who harassed and heckled the rally attendees - throwing objects at police – were the troublemakers. But Jim Acosta will not let the Truth destroy his narrative.
Did Jim Acosta represent the Truth?
Is he a LIAR?
The Halls of Government
These days even being associated with or working for the Trump administration brings you under the Liberal guillotine. More than 30 people were indicted for wrongdoing during the Mueller investigation into Trump/Russia Collusion. Meanwhile, the ones that did collude are still walking free; i.e. Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, John Brennan, James Clapper and James Comey.
It hasn’t stopped there.
From Karen Townsend via HotAir.com:
An ethics complaint has been filed against Oregon Congressman Earl Blumenauer. Gordon Sondland’s involvement with Provenance Hotels, a Portland-based company, caused the congressman to call for a boycott of the hotel chain. Now the company’s president is calling the hyper-partisan move a “politically motivated campaign of intimidation.”
Would it surprise you to know that the accused Congressman is Democrat? It shouldn’t. This is the playbook by the Media, the Democrat Party and all of their sycophants across America to destroy the President and anyone associated with him or working in his administration. It is constant, never ending and in this humble person’s opinion, the very thing Mr. Bronowski warned us about decades ago.
The Media and the Democrats constantly bring up the Emoluments Clause, citing how Donald Trump should not be getting rich when people use his resorts or hotels. Nobody on the Left uttered a word when it was revealed Hillary Clinton ran up millions of dollars in donations for the Clinton Foundation while serving as Secretary of State.
Is most of the Media Liars?
Are the Democrats all Liars?
Your only worry is that the Democrats, by hook or crook, regain the three branches of American Government. Rest assured, after that, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton will be named for Sainthood and all Truth will become ‘fossilized’ by the rewriters of History.
