Worst Year in Decades Capped by Worst Election in History

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris

At the end of this devastating year, the majority of Americans have apparently chosen bigger government, higher taxes, creeping socialism, waning economy, more abortion, iniquitous sexuality, weaker military, fewer freedoms, illegal immigration, unchecked lawlessness, and Kamala Harris as the likely future president. I believe most of those Americans ignored those consequences opting rather to demonstrate their displeasure with the president’s personal behavior. Here is my take on this unprecedented election.

First, let’s be real. I doubt that over ten percent of the voters really wanted Biden and Harris as their president and vice president. Hardly any enthusiasm could be detected in their lackluster campaign. Biden voters just hated Trump. Biden seems destined to become president only because he wasn’t Trump. So now, we have sent a message to the world that our great nation is plunging more deeply into socialism and immorality–because most voters hated the president’s personality.

However, in defense of the anti-Trump voters, their views were largely based on deception. They were formed mostly from an overwhelmingly biased news media and social media. American media, with few exceptions, have become a formidable arm of the Democratic Party. Most Americans have been victims of a constant daily diet of media bias, untruths, and censorship. Trump was grilled mercilessly by the mainstream media while Biden got hardly any challenging questions. I never saw one single positive news story on Trump outside of Fox News and Newsmax. Conversely, I never heard one negative report on Biden from the liberal media. The concept of balanced reporting from mainstream media went away years ago. This is a sad commentary on our nation.

Had Trump received even minimal consideration of his accomplishments from the House and the liberal media, he would have won this election handily. Instead, both the House and the biased media attacked him with the fake three-year Russia probe, baseless impeachment, legislative and policy rejection, constant harassment, and misrepresentation of his pandemic leadership. No president could hold up under that level of prejudice.

Then, on top of all of this, the election was an absolute sham. National pre-election-day polls that predicted double digit wins for Biden, ballots mailed out to all registered voters, days or weeks allowed to count the votes, legal observers not allowed to observe, batches of thousands of votes coming in last minute 100% for Biden, Trump votes found in trash cans, and voters accepted with no I.D. All of the irregularities favored Democrats, and all could have been easily avoided. Trump would have clearly won in a fair election. This was NOT a fair election.

I pray we will retain the Senate majority. Otherwise, I believe there would be no hope for our nation. The assumed new president and the House will make major strides in liberalizing and weakening America. But the very worst of their initiatives, the Green New Deal, socialized medical care, new states, and destruction of the electoral process will hopefully not see the light of day. If the Senate counterbalances the House, little will be accomplished for the people, but at least the House and the White House will be limited in their attempts to radicalize the country.

I can’t see what God is doing in the America with which He blessed us. We don’t even deserve His attention now considering what we have done with this greatest of all nations. Maybe He is humbling us to have to depend only on Him. We must embrace Proverbs 3:5-6 at this point: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” Will we do that? Lord, please straighten the path of America.

Why Are Almost All News Media Radically Left?

America craves factual, unbiased news reporting, yet almost all modern journalism is ultra-liberal and untrustworthy. How did we get here, and can we recover?

The Democratic Convention by any rational measure was boring, uninspiring, and lacked substance. Yet the liberal media praised every aspect of it with hardly any critical analysis.

Conversely, half-way through the Republican Convention, any unbiased observer would rate it as exciting, inspiring, and offering an abundance of substance. Yet most media coverage criticized every segment of it. The morning after a second evening of eclectic guest speakers, upbeat events, and rousing presentations, I opened my Yahoo home page containing a variety of news agency reports. I scrolled and scrolled for any positive report of the prior evening. None. But here are the headlines from the first couple of pages:

  • Suburban Women Are Rallying Against Trump, Evangelical Support of Donald Trump Spits on His Legacy, Melania’s Disparaging Remarks about President Trump and Ivanka Caught on Tape, Prominent Republicans Not Supporting Trump, Trump Isn’t Building a Case Against Biden, Trump Jr Believes Father Will Be Defeated by Biden, First Night RNC Ratings Down, RNC Naturalization Ceremony Sparks Uproar

How did we get from Art Buchwald, Walter Cronkite, and David Brinkley to this? Well, it’s all about money and mergers. Three decades ago, the news media industry was owned by over 50 companies. Did you know that six corporations now own 90 percent of the new media? Those same six corporations also own 70 percent of the cable companies. Did you know that the major stock holders of those six corporations are a handful of billionaires. Most of those billionaires are also liberal moguls in the entertainment industry. Most news programs and publications are now little more than extensions of the liberal entertainment industry. Yes, monolithic Hollywood produces most of your news.

Once that is understood, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that most of the drivers of today’s news are not principled journalists, but rather entertainment elites who spin the important events and news makers according to their own personal leftest agenda.

I didn’t write this post to promote a particular news source. However, I am personally convinced that there is one media corporation–and probably only one–that is owned by a conservative who hasn’t sold out to the Left. That is News Corp which owns Fox, Wall Street Journal, New York Post, and several other outlets. News Corp’s controlling stockholder and executive chairman is Rupert Murdoch, one of the best known conservative voices in America.

I don’t deny that Fox News is somewhat biased on the conservative side. But I do believe it is about the only legitimate alternative to the rest of the ultra-biased liberal news media. Perhaps that is why its Nielsen ratings are consistently higher than any other television news provider. If just half of the news viewers and readers would opt for News Corp media for most of their news, the others would have to become balanced or go broke. This nation could then recover from the unfair influence of the radical left media.
