You Haven’t Got It

I’m back. Thank God.

I didn’t blog most of the past year because I was writing a book that I got actual money for (just so you know, blogs don’t really pay) and because I just didn’t have an angle. Not sure I do now but I have to get back at it. It’s a discipline and I need to retrain those muscles.

So… I’m back.

But I’m back in a time when the American media is stuck. Absolutely stuck in the mud with no mule or Ford F-150 to pull us out.

To paraphrase the great film “All The President’s Men” – We haven’t got it.

Just not enough to bring President Trump down.

Don’t get me wrong – of course there is overwhelming evidence to bring down President Trump. Just not enough that sixty percent of Americas will get behind.

We are living in a country that elected a President ONLY because he said he would keep Mexicans out. REPEAT – ONLY BECAUSE HE WOULD KEEP MEXICANS OUT.

It wasn’t about jobs. It was about tax cuts. It wasn’t about NATO or the war on terror.

It was because he said he would build a wall to keep people out of America.

Even the Pope knows this is the only reason he is President. Look at that face.

Many of these same Americans that voted for him will lose their health insurance, will not get any tax break, will not get jobs… they will just get the Mexicans out. And that STILL seems to be okay with them.

We are living in a country that tolerated their ancestors when they came in the country – but have no tolerance for anything else.

But the journalists still need to be smarter.

We all want to have THE SCOOP – THE SMOKING GUN that finally brings him down – but we have to be careful.

Our challenge is – we have to be completely honest. There is no wiggle room for speculation. No wiggle room for unnamed sources.

The Trump White House is using every vague reference as leverage.

But it won’t work forever.

We must only be honest and, based on the absolute truthful facts, this President will be brought to his knees and he will resign.

Not impeached because there are no real “give me liberty or give me death” Americans on the Republican side – but he will be forced to resign because… there will be no other choice.

But right now, in a world where a candidate for congress can assault a reporter and still win, when most in the media are so horrified by this President’s lack of ability or respect for the job and only wants to get one of these overwhelmingly impeachable charges to stick… we haven’t got it.
