Attacks on Israel spun or not reported at all by mainstream media

As I write this, Israel is under attack. Sirens are going off non-stop in areas along the southern border. My wife’s app, which alerts her when there are attacks on Israel, has been blowing up all day. At least 17 have been injured. Yet here in America, we either hear a variation of this news that paints Israel as the aggressor or we don’t hear about it at all.

Imagine if a single rocket flew from Mexico and hit El Paso. Or one rocket crossed from South Korea to North Korea. Would it be big news if a mortar launched from Italy landed in Switzerland? In all these cases, it would be the big story of the day with speculation and commentary continuing for several days. But this is Israel. It’s Gaza. It’s the world’s punching bag getting hit once again because, well, they deserve it, right? In other words, it’s not a story.

You won’t see it prominently on Google News, Yahoo!, Fox News, or pretty much anywhere Americans generally get their daily dose of world events. They all cover it a little because they have an obligation, but it’s conspicuously below stories about Taylor Swift and Jack in the Box’ new television ads. That would be enough to make one upset, but the way it’s being covered is also abysmal. It’s being spun by most mainstream media publications as Israel attacking Gaza and being met with counterattacks. They don’t outright say that, but they cleverly position the headlines and opening paragraphs to give news skimmers the impression that Israel is the aggressor today and always.

Here’s what you’ll find on Twitter, which is regrettably becoming the only place to find good coverage of Israel. I say “regrettably” because as a platform it is littered with much more anti-Israel sentiment than positive.

As I write this, my wife’s phone continues to go off nonstop.

What can conscientious Americans do? Is it possible to sift through the propaganda thrown up against Israel without getting caught up in reverse bias? When so much press is stacked against them, how do we know when they do things that are truly wrong (and yes, the nation of Israel makes bad moves just like everyone else) and when they’re the victims of a world and media united against them?

More so than any other nation, we must practice discernment and carefully read what is said about Israel. Use multiple sources. Get the whole picture as best you can. Unlike other distant nations, Israel’s fate and direction are directly attached to us and visa versa. We must be aware of what’s going on there just as they must be aware of what’s going on here.

I’ll leave you with three important Bible verses to keep in mind when seeing how the world treats Israel today.

Zechariah 12:1-3 KJV

12 The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.

2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.

3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

Arizona Republic endorses Democrat (again) because the Republican was mean (again)

Arizona Republic endorses Democrat again because the Republican was mean again

Mainstream media, or should we say “meanstream media,” has been in the process of lurching to the left for a while. Even Fox News, while backing the President, often rails against conservatives while embracing moderate Republicans who practice Democratic orthodoxy. That’s not everyone at Fox News, but some prominent show hosts really love to align in the center.

The Arizona Republic, which was counted on for a while to lean right during elections, made a shift in 2016 by endorsing Hillary Clinton. Now, they’re going to the left of Clinton by endorsing far-left Democratic Socialist Kyrsten Sinema. Her 9% Liberty Score makes her by far the biggest leftist in the state. Now the Arizona Republic wants her to be their next Senator.

It isn’t just her voting record. Her ideas are extremely dangerous for America and particularly a southern border state like Arizona:

Kyrsten Sinema’s dangerous ideas do not belong in the Senate

http://noqreport.com/2018/10/12/kyrsten-sinemas-dangerous-ideas-not-belong-senate/There’s a very distinct difference between defense of personal freedoms, a conservative staple, and desiring no repercussions for people who intend to kill Americans. As with many far-left activists, they don’t care about the lives of others if they don’t agree wholeheartedly with their worldviews.

This wasn’t the only statement getting Sinema into hot water with voters.

The paper’s endorsement of Clinton in 2016 can be chalked up to the Trump effect that hit many conservatives in their funny bone. It should be noted that I didn’t endorse nor vote for Trump, but I definitely didn’t endorse or vote for Clinton. My write in vote wasn’t even running. Oh, if only Thomas Sowell had stepped away from academia to lead the country for eight years, but I digress.

When the paper goes for two leftists in a row, we can call it a trend. With Sinema in particular, there needed to be a tremendous excuse that allowed the editorial board to abandon any sense of conservatism and embrace the far-left socialist values she has espoused her entire adult life.

Nope. Their excuse is as weak as anyone could possibly imagine:

Arizona newspaper backs Democrat in dead heat Senate race

https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/412432-the-arizona-republic-backs-sinema-in-dead-heat-senate-raceRather than pointing to particular policy positions in the endorsement, the editorial board pointed to how the candidates have handled themselves during the race.

“We need to get back to a saner time, when senators didn’t call each other names — or if they did, they could put it all aside after the vote and go get a beer together,” the paper’s editorial board wrote. “There is too much ‘us and them’ in D.C., and it hurts how we are governed.”

“The real Martha McSally and Kyrsten Sinema know that,” the board argued. “But Sinema is the only one willing to say it (repeatedly) from behind her mask.”

The editorial board argued that McSally has gone further than Sinema in attacks on her opponent.

The paper tries to justify their decision by claiming McSally is center-right (which she is) and Sinema is center-left (which she is not). One needs only to look at her 9% Liberty Score to realize she’s the most radical representative in Arizona. It’s not even close.

Thomas Sowell nails the fact versus feelings problem

There are many reasons why Thomas Sowell is my favorite conservative thinker. This ideas resonate so clearly with the right mindset. His arguments are practically irrefutable.

This particular quote from whoever runs his Twitter account rings so true today. Mainstream media’s programming has affected both the left and the right, but this component of their onslaught on leftist sensibilities is arguably the biggest problem with the progressive movement today.

Hilarious video: Bombshell, the beginning of the end, walls closing in, the tipping point

Hilarious video Bombshell the beginning of the end walls closing in the tipping point

Most leftists remember it like a previous generation remembers when they heard JFK was killed. It was the moment they realized Donald Trump would become President of the United States. Since then, mainstream media has been incessant in their proclamations that his days are numbered.

Perhaps it’s comforting to them to continuously hear about how the latest bombshell means it’s the beginning of the end because the walls are closing in on a presidency that has reached a tipping point. Or something.
