Denying the harsh reality of American decline

The mainstream media have their hands full if thy intend to convince us that it's morning in Obama and Clinton’s America.

Donald Trump accepts the Republican nomination for president.

WASHINGTON, July 22, 2016 — Donald Trump hit all the right notes in his Thursday evening speech accepting the Republican Party’s nomination for president. We know this because the New York Times attacked Trump’s description of our Shangri-la by resorting to the usual conceit for which authoritarian progressives are known.

“If Mr. Trump believed this dystopia existed, he would have a clear and detailed plan for change,” said the newspaper’s lead editorial. That’s not the way it works in America. A free and independent people plan their own lives. Otherwise, we’d all move to Iran, where ruling clerics send enforcers into the streets to cane or arrest those who stray from the “detailed plan.”

Ask the widow of a veteran killed by a neglectful Veterans Administration or struggling American families attempting to keep pace with the fast-rising costs of Obamacare how they like the detailed plans of their government overlords.

The CNN website late Friday afternoon had these conflicting, side-by-side headlines:

  • “Obama: Trump’s doom-and-gloom doesn’t match reality.”
  • “Shooting spree at mall: German police: 8 dead, attackers on the loose.”

Hillary Clinton said Trump’s speech “painted a dark picture of an America in decline. And his answer—more fear, more division, more anger, more hate.”

Clinton and Obama have the unenviable and daunting task of convincing Americans to stop believing their lying eyes, or as Trump said Thursday night, spinning their “carefully-crafted lies and the media myths” at “their convention next week.”

A Rasmussen poll released just a few days ago reports that 72 percent of Americans believe the nation is on the “wrong track.”

If the mainstream media intends to debunk Trump’s contention that the Democratic Party has done nothing over these past eight years but manage America’s decline as an economic and geopolitical power, they’ll have to stop reporting “reality” and, instead, report exclusively on the Kardashian clan.

Trump nails convention speech and America’s mood

“America is far less safe—and the world is far less stable—than when Obama made the decision to put Hillary Clinton in charge of America’s foreign policy,” said Trump.

The New York Times reminded us, “Mr. Trump trounced 16 rivals and won 37 states by crude, boastful force. Refusing ever to acknowledge error, he has aimed to ‘knock the hell’ out of all who rejected his vision of an America made great again.”

It sounds like the Gray Lady is more than a little worried Trump will persuade a majority of Americans to “knock the hell” out of the other gray lady this November.
