The Information Iron Curtain that Ensnares Liberals

With the greatest information delivery machine that humankind has ever known – the Internet – how can those on the Left be so utterly ignorant?

Published

on

The Arizona audit of the 2020 election is showing fraud on such a massive scale that even those who initially suspected fraud are stunned. Yet, other than a handful of alternative conservative news outlets, this historic theft of democracy is receiving relatively little coverage.

Most conservatives are still not aware of the latest findings, while virtually all liberals continue to regard the fraud as a made-up, non-issue. Some will even bristle if you bring up the topic. And why would liberals act any differently? They represent the mainstream media’s targets and are fed a constant diet of leftist propaganda. Most of them are clueless about U.S. or world affairs (most recently, Cuba), and it has been this way not just for this past year, or for several years, but for decades.

The brunt of liberals have no idea about Biden’s outrageous blunders in the Middle East, or his abhorrent refusal to speak up about Cuba. Most have no idea how Biden enabled China to inexorably diminish U.S. power and influence while enhancing their own. Too many have zero understanding of how Biden’s dalliance with Iran threatens the world.

Living without a Clue

It is said that ignorance is bliss, but I don’t think so. Liberals have no clue as to the Biden crime family’s vast and blatant offenses against America. Most have less than scattershot knowledge of how Joe Biden personally enriched himself by literally selling out the American worker. Many have no knowledge of Hunter Biden’s continuing nefarious activities with Ukraine, Russia, and elsewhere. That Hunter Biden’s incriminating laptop was real is unknown to the liberal masses.

Many liberals have no idea that Joe Biden’s picks for various cabinet posts and other top positions were precarious at best, and that the credentials of the people he nominated were highly questionable, even among Democrat congressional representatives and senators.

Only when you visit alternative news site on the internet, those not dominated by “progressive Leftists,” do you see that Joe Biden, or more specifically, his handlers, are making a highly regrettable mess domestically and internationally.

One shudders to think what will happen to our country and to the world if he and his utterly incompetent vice president remain in office for another terrifying 42 months.

“Woke” and Brainwashed

A poll of Democrats earlier this year proved to be illuminating. When asked what their number one concern was, unquestionably it was “Trump voters.” Thus, despite all the vital events occurring here and abroad, the Leftist media machine has so utterly brainwashed their readership that these poor souls believe that somehow someway, Trump voters are the biggest problem confronting the country, followed by white nationalism, and systemic racism.

The poll signifies how utterly brainwashed Democrats are, but we already understand that this group has been brainwashed for eons. It is not entirely surprising that Trump voters, continually demonized over months and even years, are seen as the nation’s number one concern.

In mid-2021, for such an intellectual and informational chasm to exist is a curious development for sociologists to study for years to come. How, in a world with the greatest information delivery machine that humankind has ever known – the Internet – can half of the populace be so utterly ignorant? The answer, seemingly, is that an “Information Iron Curtain” has descended upon them.

Clueless and Cloistered

While they are free to click on any news sites and gain perspectives that cannot otherwise be gleaned from the sites they patronize each day, they never do. The irony is that they are seconds away from gaining some semblance of objectivity.

Those on the right have no choice but to be exposed to the news and views of the Left all day long, every day, week in and week out, because the mainstream media dominates discourse in our society. We know what liberals are being told, and we know what conservatives are being told.

Dominated by Facebook, Google, and Twitter online, and major newspapers in print, Liberals have little to no idea about conservatives, what they read and think, because the news and opinions to which liberals are exposed about conservatives arrive through the stringent and sordid filter of the mainstream media and information machine. And make no mistake, the mainstream media has no intention, ever, of offering a balanced perspective.

Righteous, and Wrong

Too many on the left listen to only the first couple seconds of a broadcast, read only the headlines or the captions in a news article, surf the same old websites, shallow full bore whatever they see on Google or Facebook, and converse only with one another. They blissfully, arrogantly proceed throughout their day confident in the knowledge that they know exactly what’s going on. As such, they “know” that Trump voters and their views are evil and need to be purged.

Author George Orwell called it accurately in his classic book, 1984, when he described how newspeak – propagandist verbiage characterized by circumlocution, euphemism, and the inversion of customary meanings – dominated public discourse.

For now, newspeak dominates only among the people who won’t look any further. The rest of us? We will continue to read multiple sources, ferret out what’s actually happening, separate the wheat from the chaff, and ignore stories that rely on anonymous sources and alleged spokespersons, and strive to learn what is true. What is true at this moment is that Trump won in Arizona, his electoral votes were given to Biden, and other state’s audits are likely to reveal the same.

Staying Sane in Tumultuous Times

Focus on the long-term to give yourself the opportunity to consider humanity from a better vantage point

Published

on

These days, it’s easy to open a newspaper, log on to the web, flip on the TV, or tap your smartphone to quickly find news from around the world that are not to your liking. If this happens to you once a day, consider yourself lucky. For most people, it happens multiple times a day.

It’s important in times of stirring change to remember that all we can do is all we can do. Become the master of your own domain and that will be fine. Open up your intellectual kimono to every other issue that comes your way, and you’ll soon feel frustrated and defeated.

Equanimity Matters

Here are four tips that you can put into place now to maintain some semblance of equanimity throughout the course of the day, week, month, year and your career despite what news comes down the pike.

1.  Pick a handful of causes or issues that you choose to follow and/or support. You can’t be on top of everything and can’t give your heart out in all directions. Narrow the field to what really matters to you and then give yourself permission to dive deeply into those issues.

2. Don’t waste any time sparring online with others or trying to convince anybody else of your viewpoint when it’s clear that they’ve already dug in their heels. It’s fine for people to arrive at consensus, but it’s a mutual process. If one party is too heavily invested in achieving a particular outcome, when the other is not, pretty much nothing is going to happen.

3. Give yourself a recurring rest from current events. That in turn helps to alleviate some of your stress and anxiety. You’ve likely got decades to go in this life. You don’t want to dissipate too much more of your time on issues upon which you can do nothing. Pick your spots, stay true to your interests, and recognize that it will be all right. You can take time away from the information maelstrom. There is no cosmic scoreboard in the sky detailing whether or not you’ve kept pace hour by hour or day by day. You deserve a break today. Give yourself some time without tuning in.

4. Recognize that breaking news, as well as fads and what is currently trending, has a way of going by the wayside quickly. Rather than get caught up in the minutia of popular culture, focus on long-term trends. For example,

* Where is humanity heading?

* What will the health be of the typical adult 10 years from now?

* What major milestones are likely to be accomplished within the next decade?

Vantage Point

By focusing on the long-term, rather than fads or current events, you give yourself the opportunity to consider humanity in the world from a better vantage point.

Polish president to Tucker: Family is the foundation of every nation

Polish president Andrzej Duda weighs in on accepting refugees and encouraging couples to have children through pro-family policies.

Tucker interviews the President of Poland.

I confess that when I was a kid, Polack jokes were a thing. In retrospect, I have no idea why they were a thing. Because the nation of Poland has shown itself as one of the most honorable on the globe.

And that Tucker was able to snag an interview with the president of that country … has me perhaps more excited than maybe I should be.

Trending on PolitiCrossing.com: A Declaration of War, Long in the Making

In tonight’s episode of his show, Tucker explores with the president of Poland the country’s immigration and family policies, and Poland’s dealings with the Biden administration. Highlights include:

“As we look around the United States, we often think, had a better country ever been led by worse people? Probably not.”

The president of Poland confessed, “There are a lot of lies being spread about Poland, and first and foremost, what some representatives of the Polish opposition are saying about the current Polish government is totally untrue.”

He continued, “People are happy with their government right now. They think that this government cares for their interests, that this government keeps electoral promises, and this is why they were reelected. But of course some representatives of the opposition are really furious, because they are not able to win elections.”

Andrzej Duda added, “Family is the foundation of every nation. Everything is based on family. Therefore, the support which we offer families … is key importance.”
