Dec. 5, 2016 By Jack Jodell, American Dissident (in association with the gifted writer BURR DEMING, creator of and chief author over at the brilliant blog site Fair and UNbalanced. com – see my Blogroll at the lower right hand column of this page).
Greetings to all on this first Monday of the last month of the year. Though he has not yet taken office, the behavior and verbiage coming from the president-elect has already yielded unpleasant results. It appears to be heralding a new intolerance and rise in hate crimes among certain members of the populace. In today’s podcaster, our master podcaster Burr Deming gives us an example of how our first President overcame hostility and turned it into admiration and respect rather than using authoritarian means to exert his will.
We can only hope our president-elect will quickly follow suit and begin to appeal to the country’s better instincts rather than preying on latent fears and prejudices to pit one group against another.
Burr says, “I hope we’re settling in to the role of critic of extremists in government.
This one is not really upbeat, but I think it describes where the long battle starts.
The first harm from the new President will not come through law or policy.
It will be felt on American streets.”
It is time once again for a FREE SPEECH TV end of the year fundraising drive. I strongly urge you to contribute as generously as you can to FSTV, for they are completely viewer-supported; have been for more than 20 years; and receive absolutely NO funding whatsoever from corporations or the government! That’s why they can boldly speak truth to power and report all aspects of the real news, rather than omitting, distorting, or slanting news the way the corporate-owned mainstream media does constantly. Your contribution is 100% TAX DEDUCTIBLE as they are non-profit, and will ensure the uninterrupted continuance of this vitally incorruptible national treasure. Please visit their website at http://www.freespeech.org/ or call them toll-free at
1-877-378-8669. You can choose from a number of thank-you gifts they will offer you for your generosity if you like, or you can even arrange to donate an old unused vehicle or piece of property to keep you from pulling funds out of your checking or bank account. ANY amount you may wish to pledge will be welcomed and greatly appreciated – plus, you can even arrange for a small monthly amount to be diducted if that would work better. But please DO consider helping this valuable resource out – TODAY! Thank you VERY much! 🙂
