I have written several articles the environment. A list of links have been provided at bottom of this article for your convenience. This article will, however address different aspects on the environment and the planet in general.
This article is a collection of why things aren’t what they seem. Also why you can’t compare apples to oranges. Finally you can’t always trust postings on Facebook. So, this is going to be an informative and hopefully fun article on many of the incongruous events and stories that have occurred in the last year. It has been a year of misinformation and biased media and social media. It is not whether or not the facts are true it is whether or not you can be convinced that they are true. Why is the left given a get out of jail card, while the right gets bitch slapped for the least infraction? We will try and figure this out too.
I am going to start with a recent posting on Facebook, that I fell for. Fracking vs lithium batteries. I am going to show the photos that were posted.
The second photo is an actual copper mine in Chile. The photos below are actually sites where lithium is mined. I will do an article on Fracking later, so we can cut through all the hub bub on the subject. This article is not the place for it. So I fell for the Facebook misinformation memes. It wasn’t the first time and it certainly won’t be the last time it happens. But I let people know that on FB, that when I re-post stuff, it is because I found it interesting, not necessarily accurate. God knows are politicians are experts on passing fake information as real. Just follow the story told by Kamala Harris and Lincoln. It will show how they take one fact and play fast and loose with the rest of the data. They do the same thing with speeches or rallies by President Trump.
Democrat Kamala Harris took heat during the vice presidential debate for what some said was misleading information about President Abraham Lincoln’s decision to wait until after the election to fill a Supreme Court vacancy. “I’m so glad we went through a little history lesson. Let’s do that a little more,” Harris said. “In 1864 … Abraham Lincoln was up for reelection. And it was 27 days before the election. And a seat became open on the United States Supreme Court. Abraham Lincoln’s party was in charge not only of the White House but the Senate. But Honest Abe said, ‘It’s not the right thing to do. The American people deserve to make the decision about who will be the next president of the United States, and then that person will be able to select who will serve on the highest court of the land.’”
The argument was called into question by Gillian Brockell of the Washington Post, who noted that Lincoln had other motivations for holding the seat open. “Harris is correct that a seat became available 27 days before the election,” Brockell wrote. “And that Lincoln didn’t nominate anyone until after he won. But there is no evidence he thought the seat should be filled by the winner of the election. In fact, he had other motives for the delay.” “If he had lost the election, there is no evidence he wouldn’t have filled the spot in the lame-duck session,” Brockell continued.
Harris also faced pushback on Twitter for the statement. “Kamala Harris’ use of Lincoln to justify not nominating a Supreme Court Justice was totally false,” former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said. “The Senate was not in session and the minute it came into session Lincoln nominated a Justice. She is either really ignorant or just lied.” The U.S. Senate’s historical record shows Congress was not in session at the time of Chief Justice Roger Taney’s death. Lincoln later nominated Salmon P. Chase to the seat the day Congress reconvened in December, and he was confirmed by the Senate that same day. Chase was one of Lincoln’s chief political rivals, having unsuccessfully battled Lincoln for the Republican nomination in 1860.
During the Trump and Biden Debate, Chris Wallace implied that President Trump never condemns the white supremacists. It since has been proven incorrect. He has repeatedly done so. Just sloppy work by Chris Wallace. It should never have been a question on the debate.
During the first presidential debate, Wallace challenged President Trump to condemn white supremacists. It was an astonishingly ill-informed — and inflammatory — challenge, and repeated a lie that Biden has told frequently in the campaign.
Trump has condemned white supremacists repeatedly.
As Breitbart News noted in a recent fact check:
ABC News fact-checked Biden, and noted — commendably — that Trump condemned white supremacists after the Charlottesville riots of August 2017, which Biden has also lied about, as well as on other occasions:
Two days after violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017 — after first equating violence from white supremacists with those protesting — Trump said, “Racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups.”
A month later, the president signed a congressional resolution condemning white supremacy.
In 2019, following shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, Trump said, “In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy. ”
“These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hate has no place in America. Hatred warps the mind, ravages the heart, and devours the soul,” he added.
Trump volunteered to condemn whatever group Wallace suggested. In the cross-talk, the name “Proud Boys” emerged, and Trump criticized them. Trump then noted — correctly — that the violence going on in the country is mostly left-wing.
In the last 10 months we have been immersed in A Coronavirus pandemic. Thanks to the hatred of President Trump by the Left and the Media, we have been barraged by a lot of false information. We supposed scientific experts on both sides spouting all kinds of “facts” and “data” to support their claims. I have discussed the virus in several articles already, so I won’t spend to much time discussing the subject again. Needless to say, most people are very confused. Confusion breeds uncertainty and fear. We don’t truly know how many people the virus has actually killed, but it is credited with killing over 210,00 people in the US alone.
The problem with the virus is that it likes to take people’s pre-existing medical problems and causes those issues to become exacerbated. If you have a respiratory past, it is going to hit your lungs hard, cardiac problems are going to be worsened. So not only are the numbers of deaths are being escalated, the importance of infections is also being exaggerated. The more people that get infected the more people that are now immune to the disease. The numbers of cases in the U.S. is being compared with other countries. First of all lets just touch base on one of he things that have learned about the virus. It seems to like fat cells, it gets its energy from these cells. If that is the case it could explain a lot. Like for instance why Americans seem to be targeted more than other countries.
In the world we have the largest number of obese people. According to State of Obesity: Better Policies for a Healthier America released Thursday by Trust for America’s Health, the U.S. adult obesity rate passed the 35 percent mark for the first time, standing at 36.7 percent, Furthermore, the national adult obesity rate has increased by 26 percent since 2008. Poverty and discrimination have also contributed to higher rates of obesity among certain racial and ethnic populations, according to the report. Black adults have the highest level of adult obesity nationally at 49.6 percent, which is driven in large part by an adult obesity rate among Black women of 56.9 percent. However, there are countries that have higher percentages of obesity, the overall populations are much smaller.
Sweden and countries of Thailand are often used for comparison. So lets look at the numbers. Sweden has 20.60% obesity, covid cases are 98, 451 and deaths 5,894, while in Thailand the percentage of obesity is 10% while 3,636 case and just 59 deaths. United States has 36.7% obesity and has 7,991,998 cases and 219,695 deaths. It seems that the numbers tend to support this premise. The life style of Sweden and Thailand are definitely different. They do a lot more walking and riding bicycles, so the population is in much better shape. So here comes comparing apples and oranges analogy.
Here are the 10 most obese countries by obesity rate:
- American Samoa (74.60%)
- Tokelau (74.40%)
- Nauru (61.00%)

So lets poke the media bear. Before Trump announced his campaign for the Presidency, he was a media Darling. There are photos all over the internet with him posing with all the rich and famous righties and lefties. It didn’t matter what race they are, you can find him posing with someone of that nationality. It was part of the Hollywood world. He had a TV show, a magazine and he owned casinos. He donated money to major charities, the black population loved him. As soon as announced his Presidency, Oh My God, the shit hit the fan, he immediately became an anathema. He was reviled, vilified and castigated. The press immediately started posting negative articles. The news channels, MSNBC, CNN and the broadcast networks started with nonstop negative coverage. Thanks to Hiliary Clinton and President Obama rumors of Russian collusion started to creep into news cycles. Almost five years later it has only gotten stronger, and threatens to overpower President Trump. He may actually lose this election because of the non stop hate being rammed down the American throats.
Since the beginning of the impeachment inquiry on September 24, the coverage has somehow become even more hostile than before. As Newsbusters explains, “out of 684 evaluative comments included in these broadcasts, a whopping 96 percent have been negative, vs. a meager four percent that have been positive.”
During the six weeks since Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced the start of the inquiry (September 24 through November 5), the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts churned out 398 minutes of coverage to the Ukraine scandal, or more than three-fifths of all administration news during this period (645 minutes).
Amazingly, the mainstream media was even negative about President Trump’s role in the U.S. military operation that ended up taking out ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Out of nine evaluative statements about the President himself, two-thirds (67%) were negative. These focused on his refusal to brief congressional leaders, as well as his belittling description of the cruel ISIS leader’s last moments (“He died like a dog….He died like a coward….Whimpering, screaming and crying.”)
On the one hand, this is utterly amazing. On the other hand, it’s also as expected. After all, we on the right have been saying for years — if not decades — that the mainstream media and the Democratic Party are one and the same.
Anti-Republican media bias is nothing new. However, the mainstream media — and even some of their friends in the new media! — are taking it to levels we’ve never seen before.
Although this is good news for websites like PJMedia — it gives us the opportunity to be different — it’s still extremely troubling. After all, as Joseph Goebbels was fond of saying: if you repeat a lie enough, people will eventually believe it. In other words, if the mainstream media repeats their anti-Trump talking points time and again, their hatred will eventually stick and drive down his poll numbers and therefore his reelection chances.
Media coverage of Trump’s early days was far more negative overall than coverage of past administrations, according to the report published Monday by the Pew Research Center. During the first days of President Barack Obama’s administration, 42 percent of the stories were positive. President George W. Bush was covered 22 percent positively, and President Bill Clinton garnered 27 percent positive news coverage. But Trump is covered positively just five percent of the time. Four times as many offered a negative assessment, and about half were neither positive nor negative, according to Pew Research Center.
Anti-Trump Media: To say that the big networks haven’t exactly had a love affair with Donald Trump, as they plainly did with President Obama, is an understatement. A new survey shows that not only is coverage of Trump overwhelmingly negative, but the president’s biggest accomplishment — the roaring economy — gets almost no attention. What they found was, as Trump himself might say, sad: “Over the summer, the broadcast networks have continued to pound Donald Trump and his team with the most hostile coverage of a president in TV news history — 92% negative, vs. just 8% positive.”
Moreover, the very focus of what the media cover is highly selective. Some two-thirds of the Trump coverage came from five topics, including the Russia investigation, immigration, the Brett Kavanaugh nomination, North Korea, and U.S.-Russia relations.
Let’s see, what’s missing from that list? Oh yes, the one thing that’s overwhelmingly positive for President Trump: the economy.
What About The Economy?
Over the four months the MRC watched network TV for all of us, less than 1% of the coverage was on the economy. To be more precise, it was 0.7% of the entire coverage, or 14 minutes. We’re in the middle of an economic boom we were told by the very same media people was impossible, but now this miracle doesn’t warrant coverage.
Let’s just review a little, shall we? The third quarter saw 4.2% GDP growth, and Trump’s average is now 3%. Wages are rising, and real median household incomes are now at their highest level ever. As for September’s overall unemployment rate of 3.7%, it was the lowest in nearly half a century. Meanwhile, unemployment rates for African Americans, Hispanics and Asians are at or near all-time lows.
Look at the late Obama economy and the early Trump economy, and it’s like a light went on. Suddenly, businesses were starting up, creating jobs, raising pay, building, buying and selling at a fevered pace.
Tax Cuts And Deregulation
Even many economists on the left have grudgingly agreed that Trump’s tax cuts and deregulation set a fire under a stone-cold economy, with some 1.8 million new jobs created in just 21 months. Yet, as far as the network media are concerned, the recovery doesn’t really exist. Imagine all this good news happening under President Obama. We would hear the media’s hosannas on each and every nightly newscast.
Well, there was one economy-related issue that did pique the networks’ interest, and rightly so: Trump’s use of tariffs to get other countries to renegotiate unfair trade deals. It received 80 minutes of coverage but, again, not balanced at all: 88% was negative.
We say this because the media are in crisis as never before. They fixate on the president’s approval numbers, which are now over 40%, but apparently don’t look at their own. In a recent Gallup poll of Americans’ confidence in its main institutions, only 20% said they have a “great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in TV news. They’re even below newspapers, for which only 23% said they had confidence.
Media In Crisis
If the media want to feel good about themselves, there’s this: The bottom-dweller in the confidence poll was once again Congress, with only 11% claiming a “great deal/quite a lot” of confidence.
Unfortunately, the Fourth Estate seems eager to relinquish its claim to fairness, balance, evenhandedness and factual truth. Instead, it embraces the increasingly far-left politics of the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, which has recently veered into socialist territory by pushing Medicare for All, open borders, worker control of corporations, and a host of other crazy ideas that would bring ruin and falling living standards to America.
There was a time when the media at least made an attempt to be fair to both sides in the political debate. Sadly, that time is now dead and gone. And it shows in the contempt many American now have for the media. Even so, don’t shed a tear for the media’s seriously tarnished reputation: They’ve brought it on themselves.
So, do you get the point if President Trump said 2 + 2 = 4, the media would say he was wrong, He could part the Red Sea, and they would deny he did it. He has been nominated for at least 4 Nobel Peace prizes in his first 4 years as president. Teddy Roosevelt holds the record with 7 nominations. Who knows he might beat that record if he wins his second term. However the press barely mentioned his nominations. He has worked feverishly for peace in the Middle East, and as a result has made marked advances. Several Countries have signed peace documents. Again with little coverage. Pilosi basically went “poastal” when she her the news.
In case you have thought you missed the riots being waged all over this country, post The killing of George Floyd. Don’t worry the press and the democratic party have said they were inconsequential, because they were mostly peaceful protests. I guess all the buildings that have been razed to the ground, hundreds of vehicles destroyed, countless businesses looted and demolished are all a figment of our imagination. Hundreds of black people have been killed in our Northern Democratic run cities. Not a peep by the press, but lookout if one black man is killed in a justified shooting by the police, another riot ensues. Countless police officers have been shot and way too many have been killed by these rioters. Again no press coverage.
Democratic run cities have been locked down for months, including schools, businesses, churches, restaurants, and gyms remain closed. While Walmart, Large grocery store chains, Lowe’s and Home Depots and online stores like Amazon.com have reported record sales and profits. No wonder big business is donating so much money to democratic politicians running for office. The Democrats say the President Trump is pro big business, not so the Democratic party is the party of big business.
Finally, people from all over the world are flocking to this country, so why is our country so evil and systemically racist? It is not, this mantra is just a tool by the left to maintain and increase their power base. By continually beating down the poor and middle class, they weaken our core and therefore make it easier for a federal power grab. I have written numerous articles on how our country is being destroyed, please feel free to peruse these articles. I have posted over 200 article so far. I have done my best to make them as impartial and factual as possible. I firmly believe if you were to read all of them, you would almost have the equivalence of an associates degree in knowledge. Remember get out there and vote, not by mail but in person.
I promised to make this article fun, I guess I failed, but would you settle for scary instead?
If you vote for Biden, these women could be running our country. Think about that. I hope it causes you to have nightmares. Because it certainly gives me nightmares.
