Am I Wrong? I thought the election was about more than just jobs and economy: Morals?

There is so much going on now that the election is over and... after it, I really needed to step back to get a better picture of exactly what is happening. As in any "purification" process, several things floated to the top. So, for starters... who decides what is "Fake News" and what is not? You or me? Who? The latest story is that President Elect Trump is being handed a booming economy. What? I don't think so!

The "New York Times?" Yep, they are one of the deciders, unfortunately. Among others in print media, like "Time Magazine," or on cable (CNN, MSMBC... etc) they have surely finagled themselves in the role of those who decide what we should know and to what extent we should know it. And, from what point of view. What happens to those totally made up stories like Hillary running from rockets and incoming or who can forget the Ford truck made to explode on "60 Minutes" by placing an explosive device in it? Fake news?

Oh yeah... falsified documents regarding President George W. Bush's military records from the National Guard? Then, of course there was "Hands up don't shoot," "I can't breath," the six guards in Baltimore whose charges were dropped and that whole fiasco. Duke University LaCross team? How long must I go on? Benghazi? Poor ol' Mark Basseley Youssef, producer of "Innocence of Muslims ," the infamous video upon which the murder of four Americans was blamed. He went to prison. Really folks, we are being duped daily. Remember, at one time scientists told us the world was flat, the earth was in the center of the universe and that "certain" races had different chromosomes and, therefore were not quite human. All Fake News! Bad science, fake news.

And this leads me to the title of this piece; "...more than jobs and the economy!" This election was about way more than the economy folks. However, the main factor, it seems to me, has for now, fallen off of the radar: morals and American "values."

While things like jobs and the economy surely are important to us all (this is what puts food on the table), there is a larger, ever-present looming truth out there that is pretty much no longer in the conversation; the moral direction this nation takes from here on out. Sorry MSNBC, CNN, NYT, Time, et al... many Americans just do not buy into your agenda for this country when it comes to how we raise our children, grandchildren, and how we live our faith in God in our daily lives. This is what led me to vote for President Elect Trump. I believe than many of you out there were similarly motivated. While jobs and the economy are genuine concerns, we must remain vigilant or our moral concerns will be swept under the rug as "fake news."

This Russian stuff. Wasn't it Hillary who had the "reset" button and Obama who told "Blad" he would be more "flexible after the election?" And, wasn't there something about Hillary trading off 20% of our Uranium stockpile to the Russians? Why wouldn't the Russians want Hillary over Trump? Fake News? Be careful folks.

I want to know how many illegals (unregistered or dead folks too) voted in California. That is what I want to know. Not recounts in states that Trump won by between 20 and 70 thousand votes. At taxpayer expense? Where is the $7 million Jill Stein raised? This is all, "Fake News." it is BS and we are being fed it. We are treated, as they say, like mushrooms. Didn't Obama mock Romney for even mentioning Russia? Something about "the 80's calling..." As I said, this is about more that jobs and the economy. It is about the morals this country was founded upon. This election was about the thought police and what they are telling us regarding we can or cannot believe, say or think. About anything and everything. Have you heard about "National Origin Discrimination?" (The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Check this out!)

I guess one could say that Obama meant to say: "1984 called and wants its policies back!" Ha, glad I thought of that one!!! Get it...? "1984, Big Brother...!"

Face it folks, most of what many of us have historically believed has been deemed "hate" by those purveyors of "fake news." Just look at the recent attacks on the popular HGTV show "Fixer Upper." Chip and Joanna Gaines have gone under attack because they attend a church that defends and believes only in "traditional" marriage. The mere fact that a word like "traditional" has found its way into being hyphenated onto the word "marriage," essentially reduces the concept of marriage to the level of "traditional." Traditional as in having turkey on Thanksgiving or the style of a cuff on a shirt. Folks it is not a "tradition" it is a sanctified function of life, ordained by God; a Sacrament. Between a man and a woman. Fact!

And, there are only two genders while I am at it. People are not to be hybrid like "fruit," ( no pun intended). How can climate change proponents argue for "settled science," (when it actually is not) when it comes to climate on Earth but ignore the total nonexistence of any science to support this infatuation we now have with toying with gender? This stuff was all made up recently by a guy named John Money (Dr.) who just died in 2006. Ha, "follow the money," get it!!! Folks we made it for 6,000 years if you are a Bible believer... millions of years if you are not, without this kind of distorted postmodern thought. Suddenly it is front-page. "Fake News."

Many words used these days in the liberal agenda driven vocabulary are just plain "made up." They were nonexistent just a very few years ago. (Read my previous articles where I wrote about many examples of this.) I sometimes use the example that if you can say it then it must be some kind of "word." These words, along with words like "snollygoster," ( now removed from the dictionary) will someday be removed from the English Language and no longer be considered "words." Even without the assistance of the Thought Police.This election, for me, was about a return to sanity... and morality; raising our grandkids.

It is not only "jobs and the economy" folks. The New York Times editor Dean Baque, has admitted they (and others in the news business) just "don't get religion." They don't "get" it. Really? In my book, therein lies the problem. You do not "get" religion in the sense of "understanding" it like one does to "get" the principle of rolling a snowball (a bit of festive "holiday" cheer here I am sure) for instance. You have religion in your heart, at the basis of your decision making process. Truly, if someone does not have it they surely can not "get" it and, in that case, they will blow it off as a non sequitur; meaningless. It will become "fake news."

If the media in general presents us with "information," "news" that is run through a filter of viewing Faith in God as a frivolous aspect of "tradition" and nothing more, we will receive nothing but "fake news."

But who defines "correct news?" Dean Back..., Mark Zuckerberg? Nancy Pelosi? Maybe Hillary? "Morning Joe?" Why don't we give away the Internet while we are at it!?! What? we did that? Whoa! What is up with that? (lol) Who is driving this train and where is the moral compass. That is what I voted for, a moral compass. So what if the tool (Trump) is not perfect. God works wonders and in mysterious ways.

I guess I too will be deemed "fake news" before long. Is belief in God, in Jesus Christ, in the 10 Commandments, in the Bible "fake news?" Some progressives would argue so. Should I be tapped with such a title, you can bet I will wear it like a badge of honor. Anything I can do that these folks don't agree with is good with me. It is pretty simple actually.

And why is it that every time I am in an airport there is CNN, while soon to be Ex-President Obama complains about people sitting in bars watching Fox News everywhere? The truth is, we have CNN pushed at us at every juncture. Isn't this "fake news?" I don't know folks, I just don't know.

So, in a closing thought... what about this Thomas Friedman guy? I read where he really feels good about going into a bathroom with members of the opposite sex! When I was young, that would have been an arrest-worthy crime; not "American values." You would have been considered a pervert Tom. Seriously. So, is it comments like his that eventually create "fake news?" It is moral code folks... Christian Moral Code that I voted for.

You know, the world is falling apart in front of our faces. The outgoing Administration has successfully gotten the American Public to take our eyes off of the ball with "fake news," some of which I have notated above, while foreign governments adverse to this nation reposition and arm themselves around us. I believe tens of millions of other Americans see this too and voted for the same set of concerns I did. Don't let this fact slip into the realm of "fake news."
