Once again the agenda driven media has egg on their face, but their visage is so paralyzed they are unable to detect the unseemly appearance. Experience has taught them that their salivating drool will gain more attention than premeditated mistakes; consequently, a little egg is of no consequence.
When Buzz-ard Feed released the memo that the president had coached his personal lawyer to lie to Congress, the vultures immediately scrambled every available scavenger to feed on the roadkill. The networks polished up the word “impeachment” for repeated usage. Only when the usually quiet Mueller team stated the report was not accurate, did the magpies return to the nest. But alas, they remain hopeful, waiting for another truck to splatter Trump on the political pavement.
Days later a half cooked omelet was dripping off the chin of the biased oligarchs when they attacked a group of teenaged boys from Covington, KY attending a Right to Life rally in Washington, D. C. The carnivore collectors painted these young men as semi-terrorists, picking on a poor old defenseless Indian. When extended video surfaced, it became obvious these boys were a threat to no one but rather exemplified excellent behavior! Rather than retract former slanders, the majority of the buzzards continued to circle, searching for an undetected gut pile.
The wrongdoing of these boys form the perfect politically incorrect trinity. First of all, they were white, which automatically presumes one to be racist, unless, of course, they are white liberals. Secondly, they are students from a religious school which promotes life, not death. Thirdly, and the most malevolent, was the red caps embossed with “Make America Great Again,” implying a direct connection with Donald Trump. Evidently, these boys missed the politically correct religious instruction class that outlines correct attire; otherwise, they would have known that wearing a “MAGA” hat is a mortal sin that can launch one’s soul into eternal hell.
Tucker Carlson, in his new book “Ship of Fools”, has stated the situation well: “Trump’s election wasn’t about Trump. It was a gesture of contempt, a howl of rage, the end result of decades of selfish and unwise decisions made by selfish and unwise leaders. Happy countries don’t elect Donald Trump president. Desperate ones do.” When Trump coined phrases like “fake news,” “drain the swamp,” and “make America great again” it resonated with enough voters to win the day. Trump’s victory had nothing to do with approval of him, but rather a legitimate disapproval of the status quo. Tragically, the swamp has demonstrated no inclination to change, choosing rather to double down on an agenda that is unpopular with the majority of Americans. The aforementioned fake news is but a microscopic example of the continuation of Ivy League endorsed insanity.
To understand agenda driven politics, it’s necessary to know something about the philosophical bent of those who drive the vehicle of lies and distortions. Since history keeps repeating itself, a look into the past is insightful. The Pharisees were a religious party among the Jews at the time of Christ. They were very patriotic, but were bigoted in their patriotism and their religion. Their political influence was great, though they were only about 6000 to 7000 in number. The similarities between the ancient adversaries of truth and the contemporary condescending conductors of “news” are striking.
The “rumor reporters” of old believed that their opinions should be a standard to others, majoring far more on commentary than accuracy (John 7:44-49). They had a particular fondness for recognition, fancying themselves to be experts on all subjects: “..and love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,” (Matthew 23:6). Every effort was made to proselytize new supporters, often at the expense of truth (Matthew 23:15). This led Jesus to deliver a stinging rebuke: “Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God” (Matthew 22:29). Clearly, this bunch was often guilty of reporting things without dutiful research. Their self-righteousness (Luke 16:15; 18:9) had firmly entrenched them in an agenda which rendered them unmovable. The agenda was obvious…attack anyone who uncovered and revealed their hypocrisy.
On repeated occasions, Jesus demonstrated the duplicity of the Pharisees, sending them over the edge. Their twisted reasoning concocted a plan to put the Lord in a treasonous position with the Roman civil government. The question put forth was: “Tell us therefore, what thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?” (Matthew 22:17). The scheme was to put Jesus in a bind so that they could justify the false accusation they made against Him in (Luke 23:1,2). They knew that no Jew had any business paying any money to any ruler except a Jewish ruler (see Deuteronomy 17:14,15). If Jesus endorsed that, the Pharisees could construct Him as a rebel against the Romans.
The Lord’s reply stymied the gang: “’Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.’ When they had heard these words, they marveled, and left him, and went their way.” The same chapter records two more waves of interrogators to aid the continuation of the Mueller investigation. The swamp has always been willing to forsake all ethics to remain firmly embedded.
