The News Media is NOT THE ENEMY of America!

Much has been said about our current presidential administration, and about President Trump stating that the news media is the "enemy of the American people". This is a very dangerous proposition, and one that is contrary to the founding principles of our country. In America, and historically throughout the world, a free press has been the bulwark of a democratic society.

To quote from the USA Today news article (one of many news outlets carrying the story) Trump again calls media 'enemy of the people':

William McRaven, the retired admiral who planned the 2011 raid that killed Osama bin Laden, said this week that Trump's attacks on the media may also be undermining democracy itself. “The president said the news media is the enemy of the American people,” McRaven, now chancellor of the University of Texas system, said in a speech. “This sentiment may be the greatest threat to democracy in my lifetime.” (emphasis mine).

Posted this about five times today and it disappeared immediately. Really? That's the nonsense that caused this website to be created. So we are having to go back to doing what we used to do.

Craig Zimmerman & Coloradoan WAKE UP! You can erase my comments that cited the Washington Post, but the fact is that Trump is NOT FIT for the office of the president, period, obviously to the most casual observer. A presidential candidate who lies and 

Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth: You may BS the masses, but you can't BS science...

Watched the movie last night. WOW! On par with Press for 9/11 Truth (available at the Old Town Branch of the Poudre Library District), this is a movie to open the eyes and cause the mind to raise questions. This is not conspiracy theory, folks, but architects and engineers responsible for designing safe high-rise steel structure buildings talking about their field of expertise. They know, from over twenty five thousand person-years of accumulated experience, that what the official report of the building collapses (Towers 1, 2, and 7) says is nonsense.
