Media Attack

Journalist are under attack around the world thanks to the empty rhetoric of US president Donald Trump. Many wise men have said democracy does not work without the fourth estate. Wise men also know men seeking corrupt influence do everything possible to get rid of the free press.

As a young man during discussion we often compared democratic republics to communist states and the benefits of the initial. To say those differences are a bit blurred is an understatement. Now the poison spreads through Asian countries seeking more control. “Fake News,” was the tagline the president began with at the top of his candidacy. It was necessary due to the many reports of allegations of business wrongdoing.

A man saved his own live while watching every member of his family die at Auschwitz in 1944. Leslie Kleinman, 88, says when he was 14 he told his first proper lie to the “Angel of Death”, Dr. Josef Mengele.

While waiting line after arriving at the concentration camp, he was told if they think you are strong enough to work you may live. When the officer question his age instead of 14 he blurted out 17 while going on to lose 68 members of his family. The man still bears the tattoo of his torturous ordeal. The Holocaust survivor recent admitted, ‘It was the first time in my life that I told a proper lie, as I’d been brought up to be honest,’ he said. ‘My father always told me to tell the truth if you want people to believe you. But I decided that a small lie to save your life was worth it. Some things you have to do.’

The federal government shut down went into effect five hours ago. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle said they would continue to try and come to a resolution to get government workers off furlough and back on the payroll. Pundits believe the problem would be solved by Monday morning.

 

The elephant in the room is DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is at the heart of the issue for lawmakers. Just after midnight on Saturday morning, the White House refused to negotiate and lawmakers are leveraged by the issue. A poll suggest Americans agree to protections for the children brought to this country by their parents, who know only America as home.

In Alabama he intends to stand behind Doug Jones a former prosecutor he is opposing racist Roy S. Moore, in the KKK corridor. He has also been taped to represent gubernatorial candidates in Virginia and New Jersey respectfully.

Candidates are concerned they would not be able to engage African American voters or inspire them to head to the polls on election day. Pundits are charging the black community with Clinton's loss in decisive states of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin dooming her run for th White house last year.

Democrats across the country are hoping Mr. Obama can again get people excited about change, even after a lackluster two terms of senate rejections for the two term president.

John 8:44-45King James Version (KJV)

44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

African Americans in this country has been made to bridle their tongues from the onset. The consequences has been injury , or even death. For nearly 400 years no one spoke out about the systematic wrongs that are apart of daily American life at least not in a sustained way. The status quo suggest do not talk about what our institutions are doing to you , just accept it.

The Media Did not Love MLK Until 1968

Media and the MLK

Martin Luther King Jr. Day in the United States of America is a sign post of change, in a place that change doesn't’t come easily. The change brought about due to the work of this man has benefited every single American and not just Blacks, immigrants and laborers. He historically said, during his most famous speech, “ I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal.’”

King, Jr. is a man renowned for not ‘kissing the ring.’ Many people who fight for righteousness know how difficult it is both then and now. Pushing against an established institution is difficult and many times one with a rebellious energy will be asked to acquiesce.
