EDITORIAL:

This week, an internet news source (Buzzfeed) claimed the Mueller probe had the goods on Trump ordering his attorney to lie to Congress; the media lit up immediate impeachment. Until the Mueller folk flatly denied it. Meantime, the internet told us (above) of the very quiet revision of government accounting to permit hiding spending information plus the faking of reporting, never mind the Constitutional requirements. No howls from the media; only silence on this. Hang Trump without a trial? Go! Cook the government books? Shhh … That’s not news.Whose side do our media now represent, do you suppose?

The internet is increasingly blocked/censored as in China or just censored as in Russia so far and now too in the U.S. by the likes of Google, Facebook, Twitter etc. The U.S. government is sitting on internet “regulation” plans, likely until Trump is gone or effectively castrated. The War On The Internet is unceasing. And it does publish a lot of shlock. But reading shlock is voluntary, its presence a price we pay if we want to hear about the governments’ cooked books … As always, nothing is free.
