According to one poll, 46% of Americans believe that the mainstream news makes up fake news about the President. That means an incredibly high percentage of Americans believe his lies. Last night’s news that Robert Mueller has filed his first charges in the Russia probe should be a moment of national clarity. Instead, I fear they only bring further crisis.
How many different agents have worked together to distract the public this week?
- The President,
- Political allies in Congress including most Republicans
- Fox cable network
- the Sinclair network, which does broadcasts of commentary on local stations
What were they trying to sell the American public? That Russia and Hillary worked together to get Trump elected. Because there was a uranium deal with a Russian company that was approved seven years ago by nine US government agencies that was suddenly suspicious?
Instead of finding it suspicious, Americans should find it disturbing that a President and his lackey Congress would investigate a private citizen for a mining deal they know she wasn’t directly involved in. It was bad enough they have wasted countless millions investigating Hillary Clinton with no purpose up until now. They know they are wasting money. Enough already.
But no. They will use Hillary again for a scapegoat. Will Americans buy it? My prediction is that too many will. It will cause a crisis in the country because half of the country will be following the truth of Robert Mueller’s investigation as this first indictment comes down. Meanwhile, Fox News was playing actual Nazi, Sebastian Gorka, saying we should execute Hillary Clinton. Nothing authoritarian or alarming about that.
This is unprecedented in American history. A time when Americans are not living under the same reality. It is a surreal world where you try to tell the people who are watching propaganda they are watching it, and they tell you that you are watching it.

But Fox News viewers are focused on Hillary Clinton’s alleged uranium deal that anyone could look up and research on their own. But they don’t. So they follow the lies of the President and his Republican allies to investigate a private American citizen as a distraction to a guilty Trump campaign. It’s sick. And Americans are letting it happen because they live in two realities.
