Editor’s Note: While the media and other leftist elites ignore the millions of folks living in “flyover” states, they do so at their own peril; it was this silent majority that put President Trump in the White House. Each week, Liberty Nation gives voice to the hard-working heartlanders who are silent no more.
Heartlanders in frantic preparation for the holiday season kept a side eye on the impeachment circus, shone a spotlight on media censorship, stocked up on ammo, and went on the hunt.
As one witness after another took the stand with hearsay and called the president a big meanie, poll results for regular Americans continued to warn the Democrats, “danger, Will Robinson!” Liberty Nation’s Tim Donner said it most eloquently:
“But by overplaying their hand — insisting on the removal of a president for actions that might widely be deemed inappropriate but hardly impeachable — Democrats are now on the verge of not only losing the issue but also having it turned against them with the same level of force they used in their three-year impeachment crusade, now reaching its climax.”
Flyover folks agreed.
Kim Abrahamson in Borger, TX, was ebullient, saying: “Boomerang effect! So many things they try instead turn back on themselves.” From the neighboring desert southwest, Barbara Cobey said, “Schiff will probably be awarded an Emmy by Hollywood.”
Here’s more wisdom from Hoosier Justhine Smith: “I think this absolutely shows why Democrats started this impeachment in the first place … they thought they could sway the American voters. Now that they see that is not the case that it is actually backfiring on them they start to change their minds about impeachment! To [sic] late we as voters see right through it!”
But Bryon Moore wasn’t nearly as kind in this pithy remark: “Looked like Schiff, smelled like Schiff.”
Censorship in Today’s Media
When Michael Bloomberg, owner of the media conglomerate Bloomberg News, finally announced his late entry in the presidential primary, no one in flyover country held out for an honest, cheat-free politician. Right out of the gate, the 77-year-old media mogul gave his version of an executive order to his company minions, instructing them not to report any negative news on his family, business holdings, and the like. Our own Liberty Nation Editor in Chief, Leesa K Donner, took his order to task:
“An edict from management not to dig up dirt on its fearless leader, his businesses, his family, his charitable activities, and – if he owns one – his dog. Sorry for the hyperbole, but it’s not that far off. In addition, Bloomberg ‘journalists’ will need to keep their hands off all the Democratic candidates as well.”
It was simply a more honest approach than the various network news outlets have taken. So many comments, so little word space, but one fellow from Montana, Jackson Maine, summed it up quite nicely: “What the hell has this world come to?”
Armed – Well Armed
Gun shots rang out across the mountains, prairies, and plains, as hunting season across the nation was in full swing. According to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services, 46,775,666 Americans are hunting license holders. A good many hunters have been roaming the woodlands of late in search of nature’s bounty to feed a family for the next year. And here’s the shocking news: Not one mass shooting has occurred. Imagine that.
Flyover folks have not let that statistic go unnoticed on social media. New Mexican elk hunter Mike Culver said: “The American Hunter is the largest armed force in the world. We hunt for food, not for attention or revenge.”
Common sense rules in the heartland.
