WASHINGTON, March 14, 2015 — As of late it seems that many people in our country feel that up is down, and down is up. Two Ferguson police officers were shot this week after the chief of police resigned and the Department of Justice released a report basically clearing Officer Darren Wilson’s use of force in the shooting of Michael Brown.
The report does not agree with the narrative that the media, and many Ferguson agitators, believed.
Unfortunately, those in the liberal media did not feel as strongly about these officers shot walking out of the station building as they did about Michael Brown, killed as a result of his actions.
One young man interviewed from Ferguson after the shootings said that he was protesting because Michael Brown was dead and Darren Wilson was free. The message was that the officers were shot because Darren Wilson was not jailed.
Despite the fact that Darren Wilson was cleared of wrongdoing, the protester was protesting a media-inscribed narrative, not the DOJ report that highlighted a broken police department.
Narratives are also attempting to demonize the 47 United States senators who wrote a letter to Iran’s leaders simply explaining the lack of constitutional authority the president’s legally-non binding agreement has.
WE, The American People DEMAND an apology and resignation from the #47Traitors

Reading the angry Twitter-mob, you would think these senators had pledged allegiance to Ayatollah Khomeini, made a deal with the Iranians that allowed them to achieve nuclear proliferation or at least did something that deserved the label of “treason.”
What the senators did was send a letter stating the fact that the deal is not legally binding because it lacks constitutional authority. They were stating facts that they felt the president was not hearing.
Critics of the 47 senators on Twitter seem to have escalated President Obama to the level of supreme ruler versus commander in chief, and those who disagree are traitors and should be held guilty of treason. That is not far from the thinking of the young man who felt, because he was not happy with the results of the investigation, it was his right to riot and shoot police, because the narrative needed to be what he wanted it to be. Hands up, don’t shoot is a lie. It does not matter.
What is up is down. Wrong is right.
There is more concern about the 47 senators who wrote a letter to Iran than there is about the Hillary Clinton scandal that broke this week. They riot because the senators’ letter “circumvents the executive branch” yet they praise the president for doing worse to the legislative branch when it comes to illegal immigration.
While this may have not been the most civil course of action the senators could have taken, it pales in comparison to similar acts in the past.
Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy was in communication with the Soviets during the Reagan presidency in an attempt to undermine Reagan’s foreign policy.
We also can’t forget about Nancy Pelosi’s meeting with the Syrian president back in 2007.
Though there were those that criticized both Pelosi and Kennedy, the world did not stop.
The president’s “deal” not only slaps our biggest ally in the region, Israel, it basically does nothing to stop the Iranians from obtaining nuclear weapons.
Neither is calling for war unlike what many on the left would like you to believe; however, we need to keep up as much pressure as possible. The Iranians are not interested in peace, in the words of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini:
“Jihad or Holy War, which is for the conquest of [other] countries and kingdoms, becomes incumbent after the formation of the Islamic state in the presence of the Imam or in accordance with this command. Then Islam makes it incumbent on all adult males, provided they are not disabled and incapacitated, to prepare themselves for the conquest of [other] countries so that the writ of Islam is obeyed in every country in the world.”
Iran is only one of the greatest participants in state-sponsored terrorism, although they are nothing in comparison to those evil Republicans in Congress, especially the #47Traitors.
Up is down. Down is up.
And then there is the mass ignoring of what is an egregious act of wrongdoing by the former secretary of state, and others, that would have most employees fired from nearly any private, and definitely from a government sector, job. If you work .gov, you use .gov. Period. And .gov owns those emails.
Even the ones about Chelsea’s wedding and yoga.
Although the current firestorm over the congressional letter to Iran will soon blow over, it is very disturbing to see such a large display of hypocrisy and fiddling, if I may, while Rome burns.
