Libs, Gazette afraid to admit their bias
It’s so much fun watching the liberal media (like our very own Gazette) hide the stumbling, bumbling failures of Joe Biden.
The Aug. 23 Opinion page is a great example. We know there’s an ongoing disaster at the Mexican border in which Biden undid the effective Trump policies.
There’s an ongoing total, deadly failure to properly plan and execute the evacuation of Afghanistan. Joe is in hiding, and Kamala is in Guam?
Today’s two major Opinion articles are something about the potential mortgage ‘crisis’ (“Act now to stop next mortgage meltdown”) and the daily Trump bashing rerun (“Debunking Trump’s ‘Big Lie’ with scholars and stats”) about the last election.
It is illustrative that the liberals can’t find anything to say about their own feeble, failing efforts to run our country so they continue, month after month, to find fault with the most successful president we’ve had in a very long time (Trump, in case you forgot).
I think The Gazette needs to be reminded that pure liberal bias is transparent, irritating and a disservice to the public.
Try running accurate (aka factual) articles from all sides please.
I know it’s hard for a Democrat to be factual, because it hurts to be so wrong. But hopefully the truth will set us free in 2024.
Vile Trump the worst president in history
I was saddened, and offended, to read Nancy Faucher’s Aug. 24 letter (“Trump did right by the United States.”) Of course, she provided absolutely no facts to support this delusional claim.
Donald Trump is by far the most corrupt, most vile, most incompetent president in our history. He lied to Americans 30,000 plus times; his lies and selfishness significantly contributed to the deaths of 600,000 Americans from the coronavirus; he surrounded himself with criminally indicted, corrupt lackeys to do his selfish bidding; and he desperately tried to destroy our democracy after losing the election.
In her book, “Too much and Never Enough” Mary Trump, a Ph.D. clinical psychologist, described her uncle as the most dangerous man in America.
The most eloquent summation of Donald Trump is from U.S. Navy Admiral, former SEAL, William McRaven.
He said, “Through your actions, you have embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage, and worst of all, divided us as a nation.”
Is that Nancy Faucher, what you see as “right for the United States?”
Olympic moments worth another look
The Tokyo Olympics produced many memorable moments.
However, for me, the three most impressive performances were those of Allyson Felix, Karsten Warholm and Gable Steveson.
Felix, an American, won a bronze in the women’s 400-meter dash and a gold in the women’s 4×400-meter relay. The bronze was her 10th Olympic medal, and the gold was her 11th. She thus became the most decorated track and field Olympian in U.S. history, eclipsing Carl Lewis. Felix is 35 years old. The other three members of the relay team were more than a decade younger than Felix.
Warholm, of Norway, won the gold medal in the 400-meter hurdles, breaking his own world record by a large margin. The silver medal was won by American Raj Benjamin, whose time was the second-fastest ever run. The race has been described by many observers as one of the greatest in Olympic history due to the records set and the amazing level of competition.
Steveson is an American freestyle wrestler in the heavyweight division. In the finals, he faced reigning world champion Geno Petriashvili from Georgia. In the second period, Steveson was up 5-2, but the Georgian rallied to go ahead 8-5 with 90 seconds left. With 10 seconds left, Steveson scored two points to make it 8-7. Then, with half a second left, Steveson scored two more points to go ahead 9-8, thus winning gold in thrilling fashion.
All three performances are worthy of a second viewing.
