There is no such thing as truth, just different versions of it. Was Baghdad Bob a devotee of Goebbels who was inspired by America’s pioneer of public relations? Yes, Bagdad Bob was an acolyte of Edward Bernays, thus the America’s Baghdad Bob was also not so foreign.
The truth is that we all know how low we have fallen from the believable journalistic excellence of a Tim Russert, Tony Snow, Ben Bradlee, Fred Friendly or Edward R. Murrow. The electorate despises the propaganda of today’s media but never demands the truth much less will banish unethical journalism to the writer’s leper colony. Will the demise of MSNBC prove us wrong? Our allies do not trust us; our enemies do not fear us.

This is not “lone wolfs hijacking a religion.” It is radical suppression by oppression of the “moderates” who will not fight back. Too many self-proclaimed “moderates” surrender to and embrace radical extreme Islamism out of fear for their lives. This is the explanation; research the PEW Polls on this issue.

“America is a force for good in the world. America stands for and defends and protects freedom for all. America is a shining light, a beacon, a guidepost for free people. America inspires. America promotes.” This is American Exceptionalism.
This is the soul of our nation.

After making “The Great Dictator” in 1939 with his own money, Charlie Chaplin faced a major problem. No Hollywood studio was willing to release his film because it greatly lampooned not only Hitler, but Mussolini as well. They had two fears. One was business.

Why did we choose a Republic over a real Democracy. Maybe it was thoughts of John Adams. Is Obamacare is an example of this gone awry. What do you think?
