I guess if you watch different versions of the news,you’ll probably notice that there is a difference in the way some of them are reporting, so that gives you a hint that maybe 50% of the time someone is not telling the truth. Now, if that “someone” occasionally really slips up & broadcasts or otherwise presents an outright lie,then the odds of hearing a correct version of the news from that source is cut down considerably. After that,you generally listen to a different source.

BUT WHAT WOULD HAPPEN if the Democrats’ frightened, angry flocks of media-guided sheep lost their political attendants?
Unfortunately, it won’t happen.
The natural disposition is always to believe. It is acquired wisdom and experience only that teach incredulity, and they very seldom teach it enough. The wisest and most cautious of us all frequently gives credit to stories which he himself is afterwards both ashamed and astonished that he could possibly think of believing.

The man whom we believe is necessarily, in the things concerning which we believe him, our leader and director, and we look up to him with a certain degree of esteem and respect. But as from admiring other people we come to wish to be admired ourselves; so from being led and directed by other people we learn to wish to become ourselves leaders and directors . . .

The desire of being believed, the desire of persuading, of leading and directing other people, seems to be one of the strongest of all our natural desires. - Adam Smith, Theory of Moral Sentiments (1759)

So people will always be gullible, and others will always try to convince them - and convince themselves - that they should be believed and followed.

America’s death by democrat.

Time for Trump to get tough or he won’t have a country to preside over.

Interesting thoughts on how our Goebbels Mushroom Media works.

We do need to keep praying and asking the Holy Spirit to remove the deception going on.
