How to Tell That the News Media is Lying to US

U.S.A. -(Ammoland.com)- Some ecological environments show an amplifier effect where reducing one population lets another population explode. In our intellectual environment today, we see an explosive growth of lying politicians once the media starts lying to us even a little. I’m not a prude when it comes to dishonesty. I expect people to lie, and some much more than others. All of us expect politicians lie as they try to get what they want. We certainly don’t expect the truth from these undisciplined attention addicts who will say anything to get elected. The only thing that holds politicians in check is a spotlight from the press, and today, the press is in the tank for the Democrats. We know the media lies to us because the politicians are never shamed into telling the truth.

In one breath, Senator Kamala Harris, a Democrat candidate for president, says we should turn in our guns, yet she owns a handgun for self-protection. The senator thinks her life is more important than ours, and she knows the media won’t call her on her hypocrisy.

Gavin Newsom, the governor of California, blamed oil companies for the frighteningly high price of gas, and then signed a bill to restrict exploration for oil and gas in California. Setting aside the insane environmental regulations in California, the state and local taxes on a gallon of gas in California are far larger than industry profits. The governor will blame anyone and anything to hide the fact that taxes and regulations make gasoline in California over twice the price we see in the rest of the country. The politicians know the media won’t shine a light on their political failures.

The governor of California cut a deal with the largest electric utility in the state so the utility could shut off the electricity when high winds are forecast. Then, the governor says that we should buy electric cars and solar panels which don’t work when the utility turns off the electricity. The governor needs someone to else to blame for millions of California citizens sitting in the dark.. so he blamed the “greedy utility”. The news media lets this lie slide.

Environmentalists in California don’t want anyone to cut trees. They already shut down most of the lumber mills in California. That means the bankrupt state of California doesn’t have money from timber leases to build fire breaks, repair remote access roads, and thin brush. Underbrush accumulates and leads to the intense wildfires that are ravaging California..again and again, year after year. The Democrat politicians who rule California need someone to blame as citizens wonder if their house will burn down. California Governor Newsom blames.. climate change. The media nods their approval rather than ask why California is burning and the rest of the world isn’t.

-New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said that a pipeline company couldn’t build a needed natural gas pipeline to the New York City area. Then, the governor said the utility company had to connect customers to the gas pipeline the governor wouldn’t let the gas company build. The news media refuses to put two and two together.

We’ll know the media is doing its job when the politicians stop lying. Until then, we will have to put the pieces together on our own. We will have to read enough so that we can recognize truth from lies, separate hard fact from political fiction.

The great news is that with social media today, you have the means to spread the truth among your family and friends as never before. The media should be afraid of you. Thank you for all you do.

Please stay safe.

If ur Mind is Free u will know that if the left or the right is saying anything it just might be Self Talking as they like their view the most. Me I figure both sides have some good ideas and of course both have some not so good. When They Join Together 4 what is best for the USA then and only then to I enjoy it. Me I vote for the person and not the party. I am 99% sure that in 49 years of voting I have never voted a straight ticket. Free You Mind Be Party… Read more »

@gooder12 — The “Thumbs Down” vote is not mine. I in fact voted you “Thumbs Up” to bring it at least back to zero for having had enough integrity to tell the readers of AmmoLand who you are. I used to be like you, and vote that way as an Independent. I still am an Independent. However, that changed of late when the Democrats not only went off the rails with their politicking, but left the whole damn reservation in their thinking. Although Tulsi Gabbard is the most “moderate” Democrat on the 2020 ticket, and I applaud her service to… Read more »

There’s a much easier way to tell when a Democrat is lying to you: their lips are moving.

You failed to mention Kalifornika’s “differentiated” fuel standards / (multiple) blends… or that it is a “fuel island” – no pipelines linking it to petroleum supplies, It must import it’s fuel from domestic & distant international sources.
But hey……. SOMEBODY has to pay for the hordes of illegal invaders streaming across the border

I am wondering if everyone here believes what this article says or do you go to other sources for your information? I like to check multiple sources and since the California turning off electricity and telling people to buy electric cars does not make sense I did a deep dive. Maybe all of you should also. Also, I have yet to find one quote where Harris says she is taking away all the guns. Where is it? I did a deep dive. She is into intense background checks but has not threatened to take away all the guns. Again, dig… Read more »

What she has done is said that there should be a Federal law that anyone who presents a potential danger through writings or speech should have their access to firearms denied. Guess who gets to decide who those people are.

@Oldvet,Gabbard really is from Hawaii too,unlike the African born Muslim we all know. The counterfeit BC they put out was ridiculous too. You talk about grounds for impeachment that was it !

Colorado’s governor wants the state to be just like California, he has said just that, have you noticed the drought conditions are rapidly increasing? Dry is becoming a big problem and fire dangers have not decreased, just the opposite.

Just a note – California is not bankrupt monetarily (just morally), they have billions to spend.

@Grim, California never will be bankrupt. They will just keep stealing more billions from the people that live there.

HERE IS THE PROBLEM. Of course the media is lying to us–it all really started in earnest with a Cronkite nightly news report by CBS about 1965 when they showed the same C-130 aircraft burning on a runway in Nam every night and presented it as a different plane being shot up–problem was the tail number gave it away as the same plane. So now the media lying is just worse. BUT the real bad deal is the information the do NOT tell and intentionally leave out of their lies like the better economy for just one thing.

A few years ago an international news agency published photos of supposedly Israeli caused violence. Actually it was the Arabs attacking a Jewish area. They showed the dead body of a little girl being carried by her “father”. The four photos were of the same child but she was carried by different men in different settings and scenes yet each was listed as her father. It was obvious the photos were staged and I always wondered if the child was human and actually dead. NEVER TRUST THE MEDIA.

Ironically, I bought a generator in preparation for the Y2K scare. Never had to use it until PG&E shut the power off in Vacaville, California because of high winds in October 2019. All of our subdivision power is underground. Then the mob rush to buy generators as if the apocalypse was unfolding right before our eyes. Improper portable gasoline storage is probably worst for fire potential than any high winds but nevermind. Short sighted politicians and bureaucrats are responsible for the lack of electrical infrastructure so they blame everyone and everything except themselves. Now fires run rampant and smoke fills… Read more »

They probably already have and somehow forgot to inform you of it, if they haven’t, you may have given them another idea of how to rip you in California off some more.
Leftist politicians, environmentalists and media are always showing off their lack of intelligence every chance they get. All anyone has to do is look at the amount of smoke in the air and scorched earth to see how well their policies are working.
As usual, they blame everyone else for what they are doing.

You’re right, stupid politicians and bureaucrats can’t think on their own. I should keep my thoughts to myself!

If you read this and are considering “should I post this on my Facebook Page & other Social Media sites?” CONSIDER THIS if our country’s forefathers had remained passive and not STOOD UP, SPOKE UP & TOOK ACTION where would I be? PLEASE, IF YOU LOVE AMERICA, STAND UP, SPEAK UP, TAKE ACTION, INCLUDING POSTING THIS TO YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA SITES!

Food for thought…Things one thinks of when in the morning shower
Was not Sodom and Gomorrah destroyed by fire and earthquake ?
Would their life style compare to Hollywood and LA ?
Does that make them the socialist/communist of their time ?
Is not fire used as a weapon of war ?
The Native American used fire to remove brush and trees from the prairie so the grass would grow back lush and green to provide food for the buffalo , unlike commiefornia.
Fire and earthquake seem to be mother natures reset button .

@OV, When the fire got to Brentwood, I had great hopes. Now, I am crestfallen, gloomy, and woebegone!

@WB…Why would that be ? Some terrorist will start another one , and the only place will be in the unburned area. Not sure where Brentwood is , commiefornia and hawaii are two places I have never been to nor do I want to go there.

It may be mother natures reset button, but it has been the environmentalists and politicians who have been pushing it.
