The Changing Times

Years ago, when we taught real history, I used The New York Times as a resource for current events that might appear on the Regents exams. Today, I would use the Times as an example of complete news bias, since over 95 percent of its news coverage of President Trump has been negative, and yet his popularity rises every day. And remember how the Times, major media and major polls all told us that Trump didn’t stand a chance against Hillary in 2016? Wishful thinking?

When I used the Times, the editor-in-chief was A.M. Rosenthal, who directed that opinions in news reporting would not be tolerated, as it should be. Well, where is the Times outrage story about our Senate Democrat Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer, and his angry, vicious threats to Supreme Court justices who might vote against his wanting totally unlimited abortions: Times reporters don’t go after Schumer because the editor-in-chief today is a staunch Democrat who wants only news that fits the agenda.

And Joe Biden, whose family has all gotten very rich through his political connections and power, and who is obviously part of the “swamp” in Washington, D.C., has stated, “I believe in the truth, not the facts.” Whose truth, Joe?

Imagine what the next four years will be like if Trump wins again. The sore-loser angry Democrat leaders like Speaker Nancy Pelosi (who childishly tore up Trump’s State of the Union speech), U.S. Representative Adam Schiff (who autocratically ran the sham impeachment), and Sen. Schumer, with their “Trump Derangement Syndrome” anger, will probably spend the next four years impeaching Trump and impeaching Supreme Court justices who dare disagree with their liberal Democrat agenda.

And think about a possible Democrat landslide. If they win, I fear for the future of our incredible Constitution, with its Electoral College, the Bill of Rights and the third branch of our government, the Supreme Court, which would all come under attack.

Most informed American voters are near the middle of the “political spectrum,” choosing to take sides and vote based on issues at that time. During the last four years, our Congress should have worked together compromising on issues like abortion, gun control and health, instead of impeachment nonsense, without solving any of our problems and wasting millions of taxpayers dollars.

Too bad we don’t have a House Speaker like Democrat “Tip” O’Neill, who worked with the Republican president, instead of always against him. What would Presidents Kennedy and Truman think about the current Democrat leadership today?
