Even with the slap off the side of the head delivered by voters as well as bloggers to Liberals, the MSM – and Collectivists, in general – never bothered to even step back and assess where they were focused as based upon results they were obviously not focused on where everyone else had been…

One would think that level of discernment would have been prevalent – but that would only be if they weren’t trying to protect their con…

Doesn’t matter how old you are or how young you are, you can always learn if you have the ability to want to.

You don’t have to be smart to learn, you only need to make yourself available to learn.

Apparently, the Left and the MSM have an unavailable sign hanging on their craniums – or as we noted, they have a con they want to protect…

CNN’s Chief International Correspondent Christiane Amanpour was awarded the Committee to Protect Journalists’ Burton Benjamin Memorial Award and had a few things to share and made a plea to protect press freedom — some of her remarks were shared on video on the CNN news site…

Click the above image or click here to play the video in a new window (opens in CNN)

Let’s start off by saying she’s playing on semantics as there is a vast difference between ‘press freedom’ and ‘freedom of the press’.

Press freedom‘ is bestowed by the employer while the latter, ‘freedom of the press‘, is bestowed and guaranteed by our Constitution — so the focus of her speech, at first, seems to be on employers of journalists…

And indeed she starts off with a clean slate. and quite focused…

So her fear is?

I feel right now we face an existential crisis, a real threat to the very relevance and usefulness of our profession.

Her vision for her profession??

So tonight, above all, it’s really an appeal to protect journalism itself, to recommit to robust, fact-based reporting, without fear, without favor, on the issues.

As I said, a clean slate, and quite a focused start…

Unfortunately, with Amanpour and it appears her audience as well, old habits die hard when not replacing them with the discipline needed to create new habits, if – of course – one is truly attempting to develop a new habit.

We can say she is not attempting to develop a new habit as Amanpour quickly unveils an agenda that entirely wipes out and cancels her vision before she has taken a full breath (aka talking out of both sides of her mouth)…

I believe in being truthful not neutral.

It is not easy to discover from her online videos when she has ever been truthful or neutral, actually, I haven’t found any (do share if you do find one, that would be ever so helpful).

Now truthful means you stand for something, usually the building of character, the exercise of humility, the gain of respect, the receiving of honor, the exercise of liberty – for even those you do not like…

Unless of course, the person attacking is doing nothing but being a bully, loudmouth, psychotic, narcissistic, and/or just plainly idiotic – in essence, providing no reasonable means to form a debate.

With that in mind, then she is definitely PC’ing the word ‘truthful‘ as we shall see in her eye, truthful is defined not according to the derivation of the word but by… well, let her speak for herself, shall we?…

And I believe we must stop banalizing archive the truth.

Seriously?

Have you ever been bored by being told the truth, or found it be commonplace, ho-hum, yawn because I’m bored… as that is the implication we get here — what definition of truth is she using as it’s not in the dictionaries I looked into…

Apparently, she believes – and the implication is – that the stoppage of banalizing the truth will set everyone free…

And we have already been warned about what will and what won’t set us free — apparently she was unavailable during those moments???…

And now, after whirling all that above her head, everything goes off on a tangent…

We must be doing many, many stories about the dangerous rise of the far right, not just here but also across Europe.

OK, now ‘bias‘ enters the room – so when did truth ever become biased?

So much for ‘recommit[ting] to robust, fact-based reporting, without fear, without favor, on the issues’ – sounds more like an agenda, a narrative…

Something she and the Liberal press have been doing for decades, only now Amanpour wants to wave a banner that they are in trouble…

And they are, but definitely not for what she believes is troubling them.

The same, old, dysfunctional, out-of-focus, lackluster, biased-based reporting, with fear, with favor, has been given a new dress…

Same room, new furniture does not constitute a re-commitment — it is more like inviting constipation…

So Amanpour, what about the dangerous dominance the left has had for the past 40-plus years?

With the election results of 2016, the MSM just got their heads delivered on a platter because of their policies, views, and agendas — that would make the right a danger only to those that continue on the same policies, views, and agendas, would it not?

She continues…

And since when, did neo-nazism and anti-Semitism stop being a crucial litmus-test in the United States?

Let it be known here, and can be verified easily that Amanpour has not been and is not pro-Israel in her reporting – a simple search of ‘Amanpour Israel‘ on SmartPage brings up plenty of sources to start your verification process from the get-go (use any non-Big-Tech search engine like Freespoke, SwissCows, or Qwant if you don’t like SmartPage – you should know by now why NOT to use Google, Bing, Yahoo, and DuckDuckGo, search engines)…

She can’t escape her past even when using the biased Google, which is supposed to favor the Left in such searches…

That being said, is there an underlining accusation here? or is it us?

If she is referring to the right then so much for her vision…

If she is referring to the left, which we highly doubt as she is protecting that angle throughout her vision as a tint for rose-colored glasses, then she would be slamming herself…

How likely is it Amanpour would be slamming herself?

She continues…

We must fight against the normalization of what is unacceptable

HIT THE PAUSE BUTTON

If a huge red flag did not just jump out at you, then think twice about what she just said and what that implies…

It means the world of journalism wants to take a stand and define what is acceptable and what is not…

It means someone in the world of journalism must set rules and regulations for what is acceptable…

If you have been following the elections in Europe as well as the U.S., then you know that would be controlled by the Rockefellers, Morgans, Rothschilds, Soros, Bilder group, Gates, Buffett, and many other elites…

The same group controlling the Fed also controls most, if not all, of the Liberal press — who in their right mind is going think they will usurp their authority to someone else?

She adds…

We the media, I believe, can either contribute to a more functional system or to deepening the political dysfunction.

And which world do we want to live, I keep asking myself, which world do we want to leave our children.

OK, stop, step back, and assess…

She starts off great with her vision that is quite great in content but then adds context that muddies up the waters worse than the Mississippi river…

Then Armanpour sets up an ‘us and them’ between the political world and journalistic world…

hmmm…

Where did the robust, fact-based reporting without fear, without favor on the issues disappear to?

To the fighting against the normalization of what is unacceptable, with an unnamed source determining what is normal…

sniff…

sniff, sniff…

We smell the same old biased-based agenda, don’t you???

Only this time, Amanpour wants to put it all on steroids…

Makes me really wonder just WHAT Amanpour as well as the Committee to Protect Journalists want to protect — as it’s not what Amanpour gave us as a vision.

How many left-wing bloggers are still around after even having a left-dominated Congress for 8 years (and RINOs didn’t help the right either!)?

All of this is setting up an opportunity for citizen journalists like never before as CJs represent exactly what she panned out as her dream – but without the weaponizing and politicizing the narrative.

The blogging industry has never been looking so promising as it does now — CJs have proven without a doubt as an industry to be able to commit to robust, fact-based reporting, without fear, without favor, on the issues that matter to the people.

Sounds like Amanpour is trying to copy their playbook — only full of malice…

From the Directors of 'These Little Ones' and 'Watch the Water'

Embalmers and funeral homes see the results of what has been happening for the past 2 years - something is WAY different, it isn't good, and they aren't happy...

Life insurance companies are fully aware of the results the embalmers and funeral directors are seeing and reporting.

Sudden Adult Death Syyndrome (SADS) is NOT a syndrome - it is a result of foreign substances that are in the vaccines, one of them being Graphene Oxide, that are create inorganic strings in the blood system that eventually stops the blood, dead.

Reflections from Decisive Liberty

The following stance is stated in the final paragraph of the oration given for the unveiling of our Statue of Liberty on the 28th of October, 1886....

... there is room in America and brotherhood for all who will support our institutions and aid in our development; but those who come to disturb our peace and dethrone our laws are aliens and enemies forever.

We at Decisive Liberty are committed to this stance and welcome all - if you have not already - to join us in learning to live by this stance.

We are but 1 of 2 nations that have placed God within their Constitution: one was created by God for the people He loves, the other created by the people who love Him.
