Truth Seekers can save our country

Morehead City, N.C.

May 5, 2020

TO THE EDITOR:

   Last week my children took me on a tour of the surrounding areas which left me depressed from the number of Trump/Pence signs we passed. The next morning my son handed me a copy of News-Times in which I found a letter to the editor by an unknown to me fellow Truth Seeker, Jane W. Wolff. 

   Your newspaper rightfully titled it “Approval of Trump is frightening,” my depression instantly vanished. Perhaps enough Truth Seekers will save our country.

   Here is an excerpt from my encyclopedia; "Hitler had little regard for experts in any field. He regularly ignored the advice of his generals and followed his own judgment even while Germany was being defeated in the last years of the war." Does this sound familiar?

Short answer , no it does not . Not even close .

Laughing . . . you can’t provide a long answer that is reasonable. If it does not sound familiar, you are no student of history.

Hitler and Stalin also attempted to silence the press, doctors, academics - no other president in US history has done the same; some have complained about the press, but only Trump & Nixon tried to silence them. Like Trump, Stalin and Hitler called for the incarceration of their political opponents - again, a first for a US president, and Trump has done so countless times for several different people. Trump also constantly disparages all our countries investigative agencies, our judicial system, and an entire branch of government, and AGAIN, ALL are completely unprecedented or as Trump spells it, “unpresidented”. All because da waddle snowflake can’t handle the slightest pressure or critique. What an embarrassment he is - no wonder the rest of the world’s leaders keep getting busted laughing at him outright. Except the exKGB agent Putin who laughs behind closed doors, all the while controlling Trump’s puppet strings.

Short and long answer actually is ‘very close’. Attempting, and constantly, to silence the press, academics, and medical professionals, are all actions Hitler, Stalin, and Trump have in common, as is calling for the incaceraton oof political opponents and disparaging judicial departments, intelligence agencies, and entire political branches (and no, no other US president has done the same.)

It's possible that "truth seekers" can help save our country from the likes of the previous crooked administration & its rogue bureaucrats. Barr & Durham are two working towards that end.

Dropping the Flynn suit shows absolutely ZERO respect for the rule of law. He admitted lying to the FBI. Do you think now you and I can get away with that. I highly doubt it.

Wherever the virus originated in China the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) managed to conceal & unleash it to infect most if not all of the world. If the way the CCP handled it doesn't make it & its leaders enemies of the world then the world is full of fools.

So when is the Trump family going to stop conducting millions of dollars of business with them every year?

Be glad Trump is your President, the liberal Democrats would never have banned travel from China, nor European countries. They actually said it was racist and xenophobic. But all things are racist to the libs, aren't they?

fishedin

Um, no. The Democrats for FAR LONGER called for Trump to do something, anything, before he did. Remember Trump’s claims in January, LONG before his travel restrictions (not ban, restrictions) that the virus would “disappear” and “we have it under control.” And in early February when Trump stated that by April the virus would “miraculously go away” (eyeroll). All the while Democrats AND even some Republicans at that point were ignoring such utter nonsense and calling for preventative measures.

No one ever used to the term xenophobic because that would be a wholly inaccurate application of the term, and liberals understand the meaning unlike Trump whom you are parroting. But you are welcome to cite your supposed quote - in fact, I will be waiting.

DeadBolt

Ok, pick your choice, and, um, i'll cite it, lol [ https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=trump+called+xenophobe+for+halting+china+travel ]

fishedin

No “they” did not. Try again, or cite your source (you can’t). EVERYONE who understands the term uses it to describe Trump, and accurately. But no one used it to describe the travel ban. Democrats were calling for action in January while Trump was still claiming the virus was up under control, and then it would “miraculously disappear.”

fishedin

That didn’t happen. But you are welcome to attempt to cite any source that states otherwise. Bring it.

Livin in Paradise

Of course, you have no way in proving such an outlandish statement.

Since "censorship" is thriving on some media, look up Dr. Judy Mikovit. If nothing else, it exposes Dr. Fauci and his group.

Dr. Judy Mikovits . I actually did a search and was , shall I say a bit underwhelmed . An anti-vaxer turned advocate with views that can not be replicated , hence widely discredited , if you believe what is written . All this stuff is above my pay grade and won’t pretend to understand but doesn’t give credence to what she says or does . Would not bet the farm on this gal . Would you ?

JusticeForAll

David, you will have to get past Wikipedia because it is not accurate. You need to find her recent interview on YouTube. They have removed it, but people keep posting it again. She sets the record straight. Keep digging and you may find the farm and the "pharma" connection.

Did sleepy Joe call the president zenophobic on or about 1/31/20 or the same day the president announced the travel ban? Did sleepy or a spokesperson say on or about 4/3/20 it was the right move or words to that effect? Actually, it matters not what sleepy or the president said. The fact is unless proven otherwise the virus originated in China & the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) tried but failed at pulling one over on the entire world with a little or a lot of help from WHO.

Podunk? When will we ever get on the map? Will somebody inform all the crowd coming here? Could it be they like podunk?

I call BS on this. She is a known conspiracy theorist. Nice try.

drewski

I hate to mention it but the same 4 people who feel compelled to comment on EVERYTHING constantly cite YouTube videos as " proof" of what ever far right bizarre conspiracy they are promoting as fact. Fox is not news it is entertainment. You tube is not a credible source. Finally the dems and libs love America as much or more then the maga hat folks who just have to comment on everything. The difference i see is they know we are all Americans. Not just those that agree totally with whatever nonsense spews from Hannity and limbaugh.

Buddy Boatbuilder

We are all seeking the truth. Trouble is that truth is an exceedingly hard thing to find, or it’s at least exceedingly hard to know when it’s been found. Seems to me that a lot of folks, on both sides - though more so on the left, have become so radicalized. Comments made in person, in the media, and online are so often rooted in confirmation bias - not truth. Unfortunate that folks have lost faith. We are living in a world deficient in facts. Base emotional needs and bigotry are not the best guides. If there are any facts, one would surely be that we do not have all the facts! Things are complex. Things in a geo-political context are tremendously complex. At best, we are merely observers of shadows on the wall, but I do believe one day we will break free from bondage and turn towards something unrecognizable, reality. In the meantime, best for all to acknowledge their ignorance and employ a little humility.

Benelli

The writer need not worry. Trump is too stupid and lazy to become Hitler. Golfing, tweeting, and whining while 70000 Americans have died. But fear not, his son in law is on the case.

Justice , what the heck am I supposed to find looking for info on this gal ? What is her claim to fame ? How about a hint .

This pandemic wasn't caused by anyone &/or made worse by anybody or entity but the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) & those people &/or entities that don't blame them. But since the leftists/socialists/communists Ds have failed completely in trying for years in trying to destroy this president & if need be the country in the process. Unbelievably with their clear & convincing exposure, they & their ilk will continue their scandalous mission. It was pretty obvious from the beginning of their efforts how high in their ranks that effort went & now it's more obvious than ever. It's now just a matter of which underlings take the fall.

dc

Like the president said corrupt politicians & crooked cops don't mix well. That's doubly true especially for we the people. Remember BO promised there was no way the president could be elected & HC the most qualified ever to run. If BO says the same about Joe look out.

dc

Like Kim Strassel said this nation got taken for a ride. And, it was from BO, Biden & down with crooked bureaucrats. Damage to the nation & people is immeasurable. Total miscarriage of justice. More hammers to drop.

"The three types of drunks facilitating coronavirus panic" by Cheryl A. Pass.

JFA - this provides more insight & possibly expands on your post. One has to wonder if people & entities supposedly "solving world problems with their money aren't creating the problems they're supposedly trying to solve" thereby making themselves much richer in their so-called "charitable" efforts. Gates seems to be involved in most of them (e.g. education, medical, etc.). That Wuhan lab sponsorship & what it created that now has to be "solved". The "bad guys" like Soros & their are in it together it's beyond concerning. The World Is their Frankenstein lab.

Thanks dc. Good information. Excess wealth creates its own terror for all of us. Kings by proxy.

Taking care of the super rich - Trump tax cut: on average it gave the top 1% per cent a $48000 tax cut and the bottom 20% a $120 tax cut.

The first Covid19 relief bill included a tax deduction for hedge funds and real estate businesses that was worth an ave of $1.7M for EACH of America’s 43,000 wealthiest tax payers. Will cost all tax payers $90B the first year.

DeadBolt

We all could move to China, and try their example of 'freedom's' ! (you go ahead and get your ticket's now.) Wonder how their social security works? [yawn]

David Collins

Most folks do not understand percentages . With any tax cut , those that pay the most get the most . Is this something new?

The first and hopefully the last , covid relief bill was rushed through the halls of Congress and predictably is a bit of a disaster . Too many lawmakers bringing home the bacon instead of the “ small businesses “ it was meant to serve . The term small is a relative term with a wide range of definitions . All this is quite typical for the grossly bloated government that is ours . Nobody misses a paycheck in government .
