In 1965, American radio host Paul Harvey gave an immense warning to the American people about the fate of our nation. “We Were Warned: Freedom to Chains” is a short film about the the parallels between the warning Paul Harvey gave over fifty years ago, and today with the Socialist influences in government and society.
I remember listening to this editorial opinion on the radio. My parents liked to tune into the Paul Harvey commentary that played after the evening news broadcast. Back then, the news media was somewhat non-biased in it’s reporting. They allowed you the listener to decide for yourself what to decide. Everyone knew the line between news and opinion. It was clearly described at the beginning of the program.
That’s no longer the case in today’s media. Today, it’s all about ratings. How many eyeballs can you get to watch the program. The more flashy and incendiary the program, the more viewers it attracts. Remember when MSNBC thought they had President Trump’s tax returns and decided to broadcast the information live. Only to find there was nothing but a regular tax return. This fake news channel, MSNBC, didn’t even bother to research the data in the document, they just decided to hype the story expecting to find some irregularity. That’s not journalism, that’s tabloid trash. MSNBC didn’t seem to be very embarrassed by their story.
A reporter with News Weak (weak, for sure) posted a snarky tweet on Thanksgiving day wondering if the President was golfing, tweeting and lounging about at his Mar Largo resort. When in fact the President was in Afghanistan serving a holiday meal for our troops. The reporter was later fired from News Weak. The President tweeted that he thought News Weak was out of business. So did I, but it seems the media snarkiness just cannot help themselves from embarrassment.
I often wonder why that androgynous big mouth MSNBC anchor wasn’t fired for reporting fake news. Standards apparently are not very high at this cable outlet. It seems the manufacturing of fake news is now the new journalism standard. It goes hand in hand with the political deception in the news. CNN is a close contender.
Our own senator, Crazy Mazie Hirono, cannot help but seek out a CNN camera to recite some disparaging remarks against President Trump. I don’t think this creature has ever had a happy moment in her miserable life.
The video explains who these people are and their goal to put free people in chains of socialism. If you listen to the democrat challengers that want the highest office in the world, you’ll see just how transparent their views on socialism are about. They are not hiding their plans to raise taxes and to punish success. They believe the American people want security over freedom.
Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will neither have, nor do they deserve, either one.
The meaning of this quote by Ben Franklin has been controversial for years. Essentially, it is true. That’s the message in the video of a ever expanding government that someone has to be pay for and it’s paid for by you the taxpayers. As the government grows, the smaller the citizen becomes. They don’t teach this lesson in schools today. Children today are rejecting independence and individuality for the false comfort of government benevolence. They are giving up their freedoms. In return, they look at us, and say, OK BOOMERS.
Our weather today has been a mix of sun and clouds. Some drizzle, but very cool trade winds. The temperatures dip down to the 60’s at night and into the upper 70’s during the day. It officially winter and whale season in Hawai’i. The Christmas scene has the Prince Kūhiō Plaza filled with shoppers. There are so many wondrous stories to be told.
