I think it's time for all of us who actually take the Constitution seriously, and value our Republic, and want to see her prosper, to take a stand against the torrent of lies, partisan propaganda and downright dishonesty being shoved down our throats by the establishment. I don't care whether or not you support Donald Trump as a candidate; but the depths to which his opponents are going to discredit and smear him are so outrageous that anyone who has any respect for the truth simply MUST take a stand against them. There's no honorable alternative. You don't have to vote for him, but you DO have to call "Foul!" when you see it - and right now, that's all the eye can see for bloody miles.
First, this telling graphic that's doing the rounds on the Internet.
Sounds legit, indeed! If the current propaganda campaign against Trump were any more orchestrated, it'd have to be performed for live TV in the Metropolitan Opera House! It's so blatantly organized, so clearly scripted, that no-one with half a working brain cell can possibly be deceived by it. Trouble is, there are lots of low-information voters out there with less than half a working brain cell . . .
Next, this useful observation from T. L. Davis.
Perhaps one needed to be alive and cognizant of the political world in the 1990's in order to understand the absolute ridiculousness of the media's proclaimed prudishness when it comes to Trump's off-color remarks. They had no such blushing revulsion when they discussed presidential semen on a blue dress. Back then, it was "just sex" as if it was common for men in power to entice, seduce and engage in extra-marital sex with 20-year-old interns.
Even when Bill Clinton lied before a federal grand jury denying that sex took place between himself and Monica Lewinsky, the prudes in the media championed his excuse that everyone lies about sex. That it was common for men in power (though don't be a Republican and try it) to engage in sex and then lie about it to their wives and even the public when caught ... But, this is the media today, openly advocating for one candidate for the presidency. Willing members of the campaign, rather than objective observers...

Finally, one of the finest rants it's ever been my pleasure to read on the Internet. It's frequently profane, but it's right on target, IMHO.
Trump ... threw down the gauntlet, stepped up to the plate, and has been a thorn in the side to every corrupt plutocrat, every sniveling millennial ****weasel, every social justice sissy, every man-spreading offense-taking-horn-rimmed-glasses-wearing-soon-to-be-spinster-vegan-cat-lady, every TelePrompTer-regurgitating ****-squeezer working for state-run media, every deadbeat-handout-sucking-grifter, every tip-toeing-closeted-pedophile-politician, every crony-corporatist-tax-payer-subsidized-offshoring-swindler, every lowlife-border-serpent coming here to mooch, every Stars-and-Stripes-***wiping-Old-Glory-burning-Communist-****smoker; in short, he is an affront to the sensibilities of the worst in America.
He’s the radical Left’s Antichrist; he is everything they hate about America.
And he is the last ticket out of this mess.
He’s the last chance to dance, boys and girls.
. . .
He’s endured >12 Calendar months of every vile adjective these ****-drapers can throw at him, up to, and including, the cultural marxists’ most powerful weapon in their arsenal, “racist.”
He’s endured the entire propagandistic might of the media bull**** machine, endlessly.
He’s still there.
The best they can come up with is the man says nasty things? Mean things?
Grow the **** up, you g*ddamned cowards.
The Anti-Free-Market Corporatists, and the Political Establishment have sold your ****ing country down the river, and you’re gonna get your **** in a knot over a guy who said he wants [to] sink his ********* into a hot babe?
If that’s where your priorities are, you deserve every g*ddamned ounce of what’s coming.
Ultimately this isn’t about Trump.
It’s never been about Trump.
Trump is merely the silver bullet into the heart of the sellout shitweasels.
Trump’s support is a direct result of the seething, white-hot rage in the American spirit.
He’s the final gasp of a dying body politic of red-blooded Americans, manifested in flesh.
He is a political weapon thrust into the side of Leviathan, as a last-ditch Hail Mary effort to expunge the self-anointed “know-betters” before they take the whole house down in a blazing cacophony of nuclear fire-and-brimstone.
. . .
Whether he wins the election, loses the election, has the votes rigged against him, or the Repugnant party disowns him; it’s irrelevant – we’ve got a lot of work to do, and the future of American sovereignty, not-beholden to back-room deals conjured up by Corruptocratican globalist parasites, literally depends on anyone who doesn’t want to see their grandkids living in a third-world hellhole, while perennial near-felons suck caviar and spit in the face of the Rule of Law.
Again, more at the link. Please excuse the author's profanity, and go read the whole thing. I endorse what he has to say.
This isn't about Trump. It's about honor, and honesty, and truth. Right now, the onslaught against Mr. Trump is the antithesis of those values. Whether or not you plan to vote for him, I ask you to take a stand and call these lies, and the liars propagating them, what they are. Make it clear that you won't be led by the nose, and won't be panicked into stampeding into the establishment camp. Honesty isn't just the best policy. Without it, our Republic cannot stand.
The establishment is seeking to tighten its stranglehold on American politics. If this propaganda onslaught succeeds in its objective, Hillary Clinton and her backers and her minions will turn that stranglehold into a death grip that our Republic is unlikely to survive.
It's not about Trump. It's about the Constitution and the American Republic . . . "if we can keep it", as Benjamin Franklin warned us more than two centuries ago. Right now, we're perilously close to losing it.
