The Problem of Free Speech in an Age of Disinformation

Updated: Dec 17, 2020


Censorship and the demonization of Trump Supporters



It's a sad day in America when our voices become stifled by an elicit and contemptuous totalitarian deep state, whose goal is ultimate socialism. That's right - and if 2020 didn’t already feel like a quasi nightmare, the latest bit of depravity stemming from the rampant election fraud may just teeter you over the edge.


It's evident that the United States is in the middle of a catastrophic crisis -- caused by the spread of disinformation --- aimed at achieving a political goal; hence-forth, the destruction of our Republic.


What appears to be happening is extreme and inauspicious - however, it is nothing new in terms of their playbook. There has been many names to this type of agenda, for starters -- the illustrious mainstream media "secretly" working with the deep state to undermine -- not only President Trump, but the American people as well.


Sounds like Project Mockingbird to me. Just saying.

In the midst of Trump and his team fighting to make this country great again, bringing back the basics of what our country was founded upon, the elitist left has launched a full scale, tactical invisible attack -- seeking to dismantle all we hold dear. Alongside the mainstream media corporations -- which many of them have disgraced true journalism, shaming those who once placed them in such high regard.
Labeling Trump supporters as extremists and racist for supporting white supremacy -- even if they are black. We all have heard President Elect Biden's comment, "If you have a problem figuring out whether you are for me or Trump, then you aint black."
Fuck that.

The Mocking bird media has also --- interestingly, somehow came to the conclusion that Trump supporters should share some responsibility for mass shootings across the country because they say so. This is also a lie. I have followed the movement --and what I have discovered is that this group -- these individuals that support Trump, millions of us realize what is truly at stake and can appreciate the stance President Trump has made. We understand wholeheartedly that he is a true patriot and standing firm because he realizes what is at stake and believe me, the stakes are extremely high and should matter to humanity.


Left wing opposition to the president has evolved into derangement and Trump supporters who go public with their views are subjected to being heckled, ostracized, some even having their property vandalized, or even being assaulted. The risks of "coming out," as a Republican or worse - a Trump supporter has been severe and unyielding.


The president’s critics have tried for almost four years to break him. Russia didn’t work, Stormy didn’t work. Impeachment didn't work and election fraud won't work. None of the schemes will ever work. Light always Trumps darkness.

The more they abuse him, the more he relishes baiting them. He is impervious to their attacks, and his approval ratings haven’t budged.


So they have gone berserk at American citizens expense.


For Trump haters, the means justify the ends, and they are okay with election fraud because removing the president from office is the only end worth pursuing, no matter how foul the means. These evil people have broken every rule of truth and fair play in politics and journalism.

So unscrupulous in their treachery and hatred they don’t care if the lies they tell endanger people and deepen the divisions in the country, even while they lament the coarsening of the political debate.


Today, JFK's famous words still ring true.

"Our way of life is under attack. Those who make themselves our enemy are advancing around the globe. The survival of our friends is in danger, and yet no war has been declared, no borders have been crossed by marching troops, no missiles have been fired. If the press is awaiting a declaration of war, before it imposes the self discipline of combat conditions, then I can only say that no war ever posed a greatest threat to our security. If you are awaiting a finding of clear and present danger, then I can only say that the danger has never been more clear, and it’s presence has never been more imminent.


It requires a change in outlook, a change in tactics, a change in missions by the government, by the people, by every businessman, or labor leader, and by every newspaper. But we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding it’s fear of influence, on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific, and political operations. It’s preparations are concealed, not published. It’s mistakes are buried, not headlined. It’s dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned. No rumor is printed. No secret is revealed. It conducts the Cold War in short with a wartime discipline, no democracy would ever hope or wish to match.
Nevertheless, every democracy recognizes the necessary restraints of national security. And the question remains whether those restraints need to be more strictly observed, if we are to oppose this kind of attack, as well as outright invasion. For the facts of the matter are that this nation’s foes have openly boasted of acquiring through our newspapers information they would otherwise hire agents to acquire through theft, bribery or espionage. That details of this nation’s covert preparations, the count of the enemy’s covert operations, have been available to every newspaper reader, friend and foe alike, at the size, the strength, the location and the nature of our forces and weapons, and our plans and strategy for their use have all been pinpointed in the press and other news media to a degree sufficient to satisfy any foreign power. And that in at least one case, the publication of details concerning a secret mechanism whereby satellites were followed, required it’s alteration at the expense of considerable time and money.
The newspapers which printed these stories were loyal, patriotic, responsible, and well-meaning. Had we been engaged in open warfare they undoubtedly would not have published such items. But in the absence of open warfare, they recognized only the tests of journalism and not the tests of national security. And my question tonight is whether additional tests should not now be adoptive. That question is for you alone to answer. No public official should answer it for you. No governmental plan should impose its restraints against your will, but I would be failing in my duty to the nation in considering all of the responsibilities that we now bear and all of the means at hand to meet those responsibilities, if I did not commend this problem to your attention and urge it’s thoughtful consideration.
On many earlier occasions I have said, and your newspapers have constantly said, that these are times that appeal to every citizen’s sense of sacrifice and self-discipline. They call out to every citizen to weigh his rights and comforts against his obligations to the common good. I cannot now believe that those citizens who serve in the newspaper business consider themselves exempt from that appeal. I have no intention of establishing a new Office of War Information to govern the flow of news. I am not suggesting any new forms of censorship or new types of security classifications. I have no easy answer to the dilemma that I have posed, and would not seek to impose it if I had one, but I am asking the members of the newspaper profession and the industry in this country to re-examine their own responsibilities, to consider the degree and the nature of the present danger, and to heed the duty of self restraint, which that danger imposes upon us all.
Every newspaper now asks itself with respect to every story. Is it news? All I suggest is that you add the question, is it in the interest of national security? And I hope that every group in America, unions and businessman and public officials at every level, will ask the same question of their endeavors and subject their actions to this same exacting test. And should the press of America consider and recommend the voluntary assumption of specific new steps or machinery, I can assure you that we will cooperate wholeheartedly with those recommendations. Perhaps there will be no recommendations. Perhaps there is no answer to the dilemma faced by a free and open society in a cold and secret war. In times of peace any discussion of this subject and any action that results are both painful and without precedent, but this is a time of peace and peril which knows no precedent in history.
It is the unprecedented nature of this challenge that also gives rise to your second obligation and obligation which I share, and that is our obligation to inform and alert the American people, to make certain that they possess all the facts that they need and understand them as well, the perils, the prospects, the purposes of our program, and the choices that we face. No president should fear public scrutiny of his program. For from that scrutiny comes understanding, and from that understanding comes support, or opposition, and both are necessary. I am not asking your newspapers to support an administration, but I am asking your help in the tremendous task of informing and alerting the American people, for I have complete confidence in the response and dedication of our citizens, whenever they are fully informed.
I not only could not stifle controversy, among your readers, I welcome it. This administration intends to be candid about its errors, for as a wise man once said, an error doesn’t become a mistake until you refuse to correct it. We intend to accept full responsibility for our errors, and we expect you to point them out when we miss them. Without debate, without criticism, no administration and no country can succeed, and no Republican survive. That is why the Athenian law maker Solon decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy, and that is why our press was protected by the First Amendment. The only business in America specifically protected by the constitution, not primarily to amuse and entertain, not to emphasize the trivial and the sentimental, not to simply give the public what it wants, but to inform, to arouse, to reflect, to state our dangers and our opportunities, to indicate our crises, and our choices, to lead, mold, educate, and sometimes even anger, public opinion.
This means greater coverage and analysis of international news, for it is no longer far away and foreign, but close at hand and local. It means greater attention to improve the understanding of the news, as well as improved transmission. And it means finally that government at all levels, must meet its obligation to provide you with the fullest possible information, outside the narrowest limits of national security. And we intend to do it. It was early in the 17th century that Francis Bacon remarked on three recent inventions already transforming the world, the compass, gunpowder and the printing press. Now the links between the nations first forged by the compass, have made us all citizens of the world. The hopes and threats of one, becoming the hopes and threats of us all. In that one world’s effort to live together, the evolution of gunpowder to its ultimate limit has warned mankind of the terrible consequences of failure.
And so it is to the printing press, to the recorder of man’s deeds, the keeper of his conscience, the courier of his news, that we look for strength and assistance, confident that with your help, man will be what he was born to be, free and independent."

The words of JFK definitely seems fitting for the year 2020...

Recently I posted the post below in a group I created on Facebook and received a somewhat unexpected lashing from group members. I decided to publish the comments here on my site because I think this is definitely something worth discussing. It's absurd what is happening and it must stop.


@JoeBiden —
This guy purportedly received more votes than @BarackObama and in a tweet thanking over 80 million Americans that supposedly voted him into office — his tweet gets under 3,000 retweets. Duh... not even mathematically possible. Smells like #Voterfraud all day.
