Last week President Trump said, on Oct. 2, “This is a fraudulent crime on the American people but we’ll work together with shifty Schiff and Pelosi and all of them. And we’ll see what happens because we did absolutely have a great call with the president of Ukraine. It was a hundred percent. You have the transcript and then Schiff went up and as the chairman of the committee, got up and relayed a call that didn’t take place. He made up the language. Hard to believe, nobody’s ever seen this. I think he had some kind of a mental breakdown but he went up to the microphone and he read a statement from the President of the United States as if I were on the call. Because what happened is when he looked at the sheet, which was an exact transcript of my call, done by very talented people that do this, exact word for word, he said wow, he didn’t do anything wrong. So he made it up. He went up to a microphone and in front of the American people and in Congress. He went out and he gave a whole presentation of words that the President of the United States never said. It has to be a criminal act. It has to be and he should resign and some people even say it was treason but it was a very sad thing. Just so you know, the call was perfect. The real call, the call I made.”

Here we go again, but bring it on. President Donald Trump is just too good, too clean, and too well prepared for these swamp dwellers. Apparently, no amount of false accusation, impeachment nonsense, or outright lies are enough to phase this seemingly unstoppable champion of America. Every time the Democrats make up another fake story, the public gets blasted by the legacy media and the whole thing just comes back as more egg on their faces with more of their own corruption and negligence revealed. Most of us are not really as stupid as they think and their credibility just keeps burning down like an old beeswax candle. However, with this latest round of the witch hunt, there’s a growing voice among the chatter. I’m Matt Tullar and here’s my opinion and please be sure to comment on and share this article. We need to get the word out to as many as possible. Thank you.

A big part of that growing voice is the changing popular opinion of media, especially the legacy media. Near the beginning of chapter 13, entitled Hijacking The Media, the book “How the Specter of Communism is Ruling Our World” reads as follows: ‘As the voice of society, media can be the safeguard of morality or an instrument of evil. Its duty is to report the truth of the world’s major events in a fair, accurate, and timely manner. It must support justice and condemn wrongdoing, while promoting goodness. Its mission goes beyond the private interests of any one individual, company, or political party. In Western news circles, the media is the guardian of the truth and of the society’s core values. It enjoys the lofty status of “the fourth estate.” Journalists are respected for their expertise and sacrifices.”

Well maybe not so much anymore in the US. Are they safeguarding morality as our legacy media continues to drop the ball and act more like a propaganda office of the Democratic party and a filter that might just as often keep us from the truth? Or do they act as an instrument of evil as the consolidation of media ownership has placed most of our news in the hands of 5 or 6 large corporations? Many of us are rightfully more and more skeptical of the integrity of the legacy media every day and for good reason. And some us remember when we broke up Ma Bell and their strangle hold on the telephone industry.

One can only be done wrong by a friend so many times before you decide that they really aren’t your friend. How many of you have seen any of those videos demonstrating the cookie cutter approach of most of the big media players all saying exactly the same thing all over the country. The following is an excerpt from a 2018 Public Broadcast Service (PBS) story about the Sinclair Broadcast Group and their grip on local news but speaks equally about the repeated national news messages of PBS that most of us don’t trust.

PBS said ,“Television remains the main source of news for many Americans. In 2016, 46 percent of adults said they got their news from local TV stations. And it’s information they trust; 41 percent of registered voters said they trust local news to tell the truth, while just 27 percent trust national news. Sinclair disputes having any kind of political bent. Its executives declined to talk with us on camera for this report. This weekend, the online news site Deadspin created this compilation of dozens of Sinclair’s local newscasters recording an identical promo accusing the national media of spreading fake news.”

MAN: “This is extremely dangerous to our democracy.”
WOMAN: “This is extremely dangerous to our democracy.”
MAN: “This is extremely dangerous to our democracy” and so on.
PBS said “The video spread quickly on social media, again stirring criticism of the broadcast giant. Scott Livingston, Sinclair’s senior vice president of news, responded in a memo saying: ‘The promos served no political agenda, and represented nothing more than an effort to differentiate our award-winning news programming from other, less reliable sources of information.’ And today, President Trump defended Sinclair, tweeting: ‘Sinclair is far superior to CNN and even more fake NBC, which is a total joke.’ Meanwhile, Sinclair’s bid to buy Tribune, and thus expand its reach dramatically in local news, is awaiting approval from the Justice Department and the FCC. For the “PBS NewsHour,” I’m William Brangham in Washington, D.C.”

And in this Shangri-La of capitalism, why do we allow our precious American tax money support the socialism of PBS? Are we fooled by Sesame Street? Can’t the free market really give us what we want? Anybody else want an ‘End to the Corporation of Public Broadcasting’ tax rebate? How could we ever expect PBS to produce content, especially that designed for children that was honestly objective about many things especially capitalism, socialism, or the public officials that decide their funding? Likely, we cannot trust them and as it turns out, most of us don’t trust them or any of our national news choices. And is that a surprise given what we hear the legacy media say and do? I don’t think so. But a consolidated media makes it easier for the Democrats and any crooked politician, the entrenched army of swamp bureaucrats, and the legacy media to keep us focused on some things and distracted from others. Otherwise, we’d be certain to witness many more upbeat stories like this one delivered by the president just the other day.

President Trump said, “Across the United States, foreign direct investment from Finland totals over $10 billion. Each year Finnish owned companies invest more than $120 million in research and development in America and expand our exports by more than $1 billion. Just today, Finnish Nokian Tires opened a new manufacturing plant in Dayton, Tennessee. A $360 million investment that is creating hundreds of brand new beautiful jobs for a great state, Tennessee. We love Tennessee. So they made a wise choice. You never lose when you go to Tennessee. I encourage other Finnish companies to increase their investments in the United States. There has simply never been a better time to do business in America. We have passed the largest tax cuts and reform and also regulation cuts in the history of our country. We slashed business tax and we’re fueling job growth through our record-setting campaign to abolish all of those really terrible unnecessary regulations. We have plenty of regulations but many of them we didn’t need. We got rid of them. The American economy is booming. Wages are rising. Incomes are soaring and unemployment has hit its lowest level in more than half a century. We want Finnish companies to join in America’s extraordinary economic revival. So many countries are coming in. It’s the hot place. We have the hottest economy in the world and it’s the hot place to be. They all want to be here.”

Wow, good news, eh? I mean isn’t that what all red-blooded Americans really want to hear? That the greatest country in the history of the world, the land they love, the home of the brave, the land of the free, and the place of all their hard working loved ones or at least the new land that welcomed them as a recent immigrant, is booming with capitalistic success and abundant opportunity under the leadership of a great president sharing that environment with even more of the world. Don’t you want to make the world a better place? Aren’t we already doing that and why wouldn’t that be a top news story worth repeating over and over? But that’s not what the legacy media is reporting. Somehow, we are led to believe that we are supposed to tolerate more and more media corruption and negligence that discourages the good guys from draining the swamp by sensationalizing a seemingly never-ending narrative of anti-the president nonsense that keeps us from getting at the real evil. Fortunately, for us, at least the president is hanging in there and keeping us focused in the right direction.

At the press conference last week the president said, “They couldn’t find one thing about Donald Trump having to do with collusion. This is after two years and spending $42 million and I’ve been looking at that long and hard for a long period of time. How it started. Why it started. It should never happen to another president, ever, but I’ve been talking about it from the standpoint of bringing a major lawsuit and I’ve been talking about it for a long time. We’ve been investigating the corruption having to do with what they did to my people. They destroyed many people. They came down to Washington to do a great job and they left home. They left Washington dark. They were dark. They came down here I say bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. They wanted to do a great job for the people. They wanted to do a great job. We won the election and then they get served with subpoenas, all these subpoenas. Now look at Nancy Pelosi. Nancy Pelosi hands out subpoenas like you know she has to approve it. She hands out subpoenas like their cookies. You want a subpoena? Here you go, take them, like their cookies. Paul Ryan would never give anybody a subpoena.”

Yeah, when Paul Ryan, a Republican, was speaker, the House the people still knew and practiced decorum, worked things out and didn’t issue any witch hunt subpoenas. The socialist bullies and their media lackeys all knew their subservient place until President Trump got elected and then their world got turned upside and they all got scared at the same time. This political outsider really could drain the swamp and rain on their parade big time. And it’s happening with the chorus singing the refrain of media corruption growing louder and louder. The cloud of phony evidence is blown away to reveal just how badly our American “Fourth Estate” handled their responsibility as our safeguard of morality.

In discussion of a statement written by Kurt Volker, the special envoy to Ukraine, FoxNews host Steve Hilton said “Six times, in an 11 page statement, the special envoy to Ukraine, the man at the center of this, described even by Trump critics as an honest broker, six times, he said that he saw no evidence of efforts to investigate Biden as a political rival or to link that to aid in a quid pro quo. The fact that no one, literally no one, as far as I am aware, has reported this just shows you how committed the media are to their anti-Trump narrative. It is astonishing. These people are deliberately misleading you. Their contempt for Trump has destroyed their professional judgment. In a week, when we saw the unemployment rate again hit a 50 year low, we’re reminded why Americans chose Donald Trump. Jobs and dignity after decades of stagnation and disrespect. Immigration brought under control after decades of open borders. China confronted after decades of sellout and surrender. The Democrats’ obsession with scandal is out of touch and decadent. People want substance not scandal. We will explain to you the impeachment evidence for as long as this goes on but for god’s sake, can the Democrats please just get a grip. End this farce and focus on helping Americans have a better life.”

But that’s just it. The legacy media acts desperate as if they know their day of reckoning is coming. They will not be able to be like they have been in the past. They have let us down and like the mythological phoenix, we, the American people with a new “Fourth Estate” shall rise from the ashes of their burning to clean up this mess of corruption. And we will do it with great people like Rudy Giuliani.

Addressing the president’s personal attorney and former Mayor of NYC Rudy Giuliani, last week FoxNews host Howard Kurtz said, “So, the president, as everyone knows, repeatedly denying any pressure on that July phone call. When he came out there on the lawn and urged China and Ukraine to investigate the Bidens, the media consensus is he doesn’t see anything wrong with it. He admitted it.”
Giuliani said, “There is nothing wrong with it.”
FoxNews said, “He pressured them on the lawn. Didn’t he undercut your defense?”
Giuliani said, “No, not at all, there’s nothing wrong with him doing that. I mean, the fact is the president of the United States has every right to ask countries to help us in a criminal investigation that should be undertaken.”
FoxNews said, “That happens to be against a political opponent?”
Giuliani said ,“I can’t help that. Suppose the political opponent committed murder? What are we gonna do? He’s a political opponent so you don’t investigate him? The fact is this is not a political opponent. It didn’t start that way. But the media which is completely corrupt and completely biased, and you’ve got a really big story that’s going to come out here about how corrupt this media is.”

And then Giuliani said, “That means Joe Biden is completely immune from being investigated?”
FoxNews said, “I’m not saying that.”
Giuliani said, “Yes it is. Howie, two years before? You can’t be investigated? Howie, you see this here (holding up documents)? Twenty years of a Washington Press corp that was (holding his nose implying that they stink) corrupt. Corrupt. Allegation after allegation of corruption. Never followed up. Never looked at. James Biden. Hunter Biden. Going back to the ’80s and ’90s. (holding up more documents) This stinks!”
FoxNews said, “You say you’re representing your client in the Ukraine and you did this at the State Department’s request and that’s fine. I’m not sure you get that many people feel that this is a role for government officials that as the president’s personal lawyer, your presence makes it look more political?”
Giuliani said, “It is. However, the government wasn’t doing it. The witnesses who came to me told me a story that still has to come out. Which is they tried to get it to the FBI for a year and a half. Remember now, we are talking about almost a year ago when I first got this. The Mueller investigation was hot and heavy. They were still going after him (the president). I still needed all the material I could get to defend my client.”

So here’s at least part of the story that needs to come out that Mayor Giuliani is referring to that the corrupt Washington Press corp didn’t report. According to a Glenn Beck video last week, Marie Yovanovitch was appointed U.S. ambassador to the Ukraine by President Obama in August 2016 and subsequently, as the new sheriff in town, had a meeting with Ukraine’s Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko where she dictated that he was not to prosecute certain people and entities that included the George Sorros associated Anti-Corruption Centre nor the Hunter Biden associated Burisma gas company both associated with millions and billions of lost U.S. taxpayer money. As Lutsenko had been attempting to deliver evidence of corruption to the FBI for a long time, Yovanovitch also denied him a travel visa in order to obstruct him from delivering the same relevant evidence to the U.S. Department of Justice and the attorney general.

Last week on Oct 4, radio commentator Glenn Beck said, “Why? $1.8 billion gone. Millions of dollars, gone. Wait! What? This is the U.S. ambassador, the brand-new one. She comes in. The first thing she does is call him in (Lutsenko) and says you have a hard-line. None of this and there’s some people too. We don’t know who they are. Some people too, that you (Lutsenko) also can’t prosecute and are Ukrainian citizens. Wow! She also does one more thing. Late 2016, she says no visas for you because he still has prosecutors looking into all of these things and he (Lutsenko) just wants to get to the DOJ and our attorney general. So they pack up all of their briefcases with all kinds of papers and they come up with a few things that they just want to talk to the DOJ and the U.S. attorney general because remember they’re partners. These guys are partners with the FBI, wedding bells (That’s the Ukrainian Anti-corruption Bureau and the FBI). So we should be able to communicate right? She says no, no visas for you. No soup for you and it was really nothing important. There are about five or six things that they wanted to cover. They wanted to expose that the DNC and Ukrainian officials were gathering dirt on Trump. They wanted to talk about the misappropriation of $7 billion of your money (U.S. taxpayer money). They had Ukrainian officials admitting to influencing the U.S. election. They had records showing Burisma sending $3 million to Hunter Biden. They had (Joe) Biden pressuring Ukraine to fire Viktor Shokin (former prosecutor general) because remember that damn Donald Trump he pressured another government. They didn’t care about this one apparently either and U.S. officials interfered in the prosecution of cases in the Ukraine. This guy wanted his people to bring these things to our DOJ and our Justice Department and Barack Obama said no. Well he didn’t. She did by not giving any visas. No soup for you.”

Speaking to the Washington Press corp last week, President Trump said, “Look Biden and his son are stone cold crooked and you know it. His son walks out with millions of dollars. The kid knows nothing. You know it and so do we.” So during all that Mueller investigation of the Russian collusion, obstruction of justice, and interference in the 2016 elections where nothing really happened, the real scandal that really happened features the Democrats and the Obama administration caught redhanded in the Ukraine. And another glaring example of the corrupt and biased legacy media failing their responsibility to safeguard our morality and instead act as an instrument of evil. Here’s more from Glenn Beck on Oct. 4.

Mr. Beck said,“Now, the next big day, did they have the opportunity to corrupt things? Did they have the opportunity to investigate and to embezzle money and to wash their hands of that money? Did they have that opportunity? Yes because of this date (The date Joe Biden and the Obama administration began anti-corruption operations in Ukraine in 2015.) They got involved. This date was pretty important (The date Trump announced his candidacy in 2016) but this date in November (2016) changed everything. This is the second most important day in this timeline. The day Trump wins the election because nobody thought that was going to happen. These people had all played their hand that Hillary Clinton was going to win. Now Trump wins. Uh-oh! What do we do. Well I’ll show you what they did. In July 2017, two years ago, the media had the opportunity to begin looking into Democratic corruption in Ukraine when the story was dropped directly at their feet. Sarah Huckabee Sanders said during an off-camera briefing on July 12, 2017, these words. Listen. She said, ‘I think if there’s been any evidence of collusion in 2016 that’s come out at all, or been discussed, that’s actually happened, it would be between the DNC and the Ukrainian government. I don’t often quote The New York Times, but even one of their reporters tweeted earlier today that why this example provides evidence of collusion, “cooperation was between DNC officials and officials from the Ukrainian government, not just some associate.” Ukrainian actions to coordinate with the DNC was actually successful, unlike anything shown by Don Junior’s emails. Information passed to the DNC from the Ukrainian government directly targeted members of the Trump campaign in an attempt to undermine it. And that was just Ukraine.’

Finally, Beck said, “Okay, so the incoming White House press secretary alleges that the DNC was colluding with the government of Ukraine. Not only that but together they specifically targeted people within the Trump campaign during an election. Wow, this sounds like a scandal that everyone should be worried about or looking at. No, no this is about Joe Biden and Trump’s phone call. Now if the media had any shred of credibility at all you would expect this comment to kick off at least one follow-up question.” Meanwhile, in October 2017, a member of Ukrainian Parliament, Borislav Rosenblatt, actually filed a claim saying two guys were guilty of interfering with U.S. elections and they got convicted. While General Prosecutor Lutsenko appealed their conviction, the more significant point is that no one in the U.S. media reports any of this in spite of our supposed multimillion-dollar obsession with Russian collusion in the 2016 U.S. election.

On Oct 4 Beck said, “The media was hand-delivered an insane story gift wrapped in a nice little Tiffany’s box. Boom. Out. All they could think about was ask about tax increases and then back to Russia and the media wonders why Trump is losing his mind every time they ask him a question.” During a press conference last week and specifically addressing Jeff Mason of Reuters, President Trump said, “Its a whole hoax and you know who’s playing into the hoax? People like you and the fake news media that we have in this country and I say in many cases the corrupt media because you’re corrupt. Much of the media in this country is not just fake it’s corrupt and you have some very fine people too, great journalists, great reporters, but to a large extent, it’s corrupt and it’s fake.”

But don’t despair. It’s gonna be alright. The cat is out of the bag and there are a bunch of us in the new independent media, like The BL who are safeguarding society’s morality and taking our responsibility as the “Fourth Estate” seriously. With your support, we will continue to hold all scoundrels’ feet to the fire. And that’s why we say the Beauty fo Life (BL) includes intelligent conversation and we support President Trump in his efforts to keep America great.

Last week the President said, “I just want to finish by saying it’s an honor to be with the president of Finland. He’s done a fantastic job, very popular, beloved over in Finland. The WTO has been much better to us since I’ve been president because they understand they can’t get away with what they’ve been getting away with for so many years which is ripping off the United States. And please remember the (Finnish) president’s last remarks, that we are a great democracy. We are great. The United States is a great democracy and I’m airing what I’m airing because we are in fact a democracy and if the press were straight and honest and forthright and tough, we would be a far greater nation.”
