The media madness began in 2016 when the networks projected Hillary Clinton as the presidential winner. This year the media's attitude demonstrated the most extreme violation of political norms in history. Contrary to popular belief it wasn’t President Trump’s behavior that was out of order it was the coordinated, sustained attack on his legitimacy as president. History will show that the daily dose of negativity will have more repercussions to our country than Trump’s tweets. Former President Jimmy Carter said, "the media was harder on President Trump than any other President."

The media and Hillary were wrong; according to the well-sourced book, Shattered Clinton settled on the Russian excuse within twenty-four hours of her concession speech.

A year later evidence of Russian collusion appears not with President Trump but with Clinton. This redirecting of guilt by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party has now become evident with the Fusion GPS connection.

It needs to be pointed out that anti-Trumpers were comparable in 2017 to McCarthyism for so many in Washington were accused of consorting with the Russians. The Clintons have had an ongoing romance with mainstream media so the story was magnified and the scourging began.

On an amazing parallel note, Harry Potter’s Order of the Phoenix appeared ten years ago. It featured the Daily Prophet newspaper which told the Ministry's preferred version of events.

Time for truth

In 1860 Abraham Lincoln was elected as the first Republican president, Democrat-controlled South Carolina a bastion of slave-owners, secedes from the Union.

That started the worst war on American soil the Civil War. In 1865 the Republican-controlled Congress ratified the 13th Amendment freeing the slaves.

Republican-controlled Congress ratified the 14th Amendment giving these slaves U.S. citizenship in 1868. This was followed by Republicans ratifying the 15th Amendment in 1870 giving minorities the right to vote.

Every black Representative elected to Congress was Republican until 1935. Every black Senator was Republican until 1979. In 1920 the 19th Amendment was ratified overwhelmingly by Republicans in the House and Senate and only a fraction of Democrats were in favor.

In 1960 the Civil Rights Act was delayed by 18 Democrats who filibustered against the legislation which finally passed in 1964. So don’t believe everything you read or hear. History reveals that liberal Democrats have not represented minorities interests, the Republicans are the ones that have.
