Don Lemon’s Show lacks journalist integrity and is full of Marxist Democrat Propaganda and claims of false racism


Just More Media Lies and Propaganda


Like many in the media Don Lemon routinely complains that America is a racist nation. However, if this were the case why would he not discourage the migrant caravans to return to their nations of origin instead of encouraging them to come to America?  (Migrant caravan nears the 'route of death' in Mexico where hundreds have been kidnapped by cartels and gangs in recent years)  Simply, it is just a ploy to get as many Democrat Socialist elected on Tuesday, November 6, 2018,  so the Democrats can take control of the House of Representatives and Senate.  The agenda of the mainstream media is to destroy President Donald J. Trump and the GOP by spreading lies and propaganda.  In human history, nations that have implemented the policy changes that Lemon and his colleagues advocate for America have failed.  Instead such policies have only created societies of death that have resulted in the murder of men, women and children for disagreeing with the ruling power.  

On Sunday, November 4, 2018, on “CNN Tonight with Don Lemon” there was a panel discussion from 10.00 p.m.- 11.00 p.m.  One of the panel members was Symone D. Sanders who served during the 2016 Bernie Sanders Presidential campaign as the national press secretary for the Democrat Socialist candidate.  During one of the segments she said that President Donald J. Trump adopted the White Supremist ideology when he questioned if President Barack Obama was born in America.  The problem with this is two months after Barack Obama first announced his run for President in 2007 his literary agents were still listing the U.S President's birthplace as Kenya in their online author bios  (Barack Obama was still 'Kenyan born' in 2007 according to his literary agency...two months after announcing his bid for the U.S presidency ).


Blacks Leaving the Democrat Party


Networks such as CNN and MSNBC are fearful that black Americans are leaving the Democrat Party and routinely use Marxist techniques to spread hatred and division among the American people through racism.  The reason for blacks starting to abandon the Democrat Party is they are tired of the progressive agenda that lacks solutions that erodes independence and leaves black families and communities worse off. (Blacks Reject Left's Regressive Agenda, Choose Trump's Confidence ).  From high unemployment to underperforming schools, the Socialist Democrats have not promoted good solutions, only greater spending on public assistance and failing schools and greater regulations that drives up the costs of everyday items for black families.

Brewing for a while have been the signs of trouble for Democrats and black Americans.  For example in 2017, the Congressional Black Caucus was presented with a survey that found 63 percent of black Americans felt taken for granted by the Democrat Party. Furthermore, in August a poll from Rasmussen Reports indicated that the President’s approval rating among black Americans is at 36 percent, nearly double his support from 2017. (Trump at 36 percent approval among African-Americans, new poll finds  And what strikes fear in Democrats is that this figure is staggeringly high for Trump who in 2016 won only eight percent of the black American vote.


Obama’s Failed Economic Policies  


During another segment the majority of panel members lead by Lemon reflected on how Sunday was 10 years since Barack Obama was elected the forty-fourth President in 2008 and how great America was under Obama.  A video of Obama had him saying values matter and America needs to return to the Democrat Socialist values of the Obama years.  He crowed how he had to roll up his selves and do the hard work to undo the damage caused by Republicans.   What voters should be aware of is through their lies and claims of false racism Obama and his friends in the Socialist Democrat media are trying to brainwash Americans into believing how bad America was until Obama was elected. However, labor force growth slowed to well below one percent annually, and productivity grew at just one percent during the Obama years. (Credit Supply-Side Trumponomics For Revived Wage, Productivity Growth )  Exceedingly slow was wage growth.   And these alone explain why the economy during Obama’s time in office never managed three percent growth in any year.  During the Obama years it became a prominent feature of the economic landscape that non-existent wage growth would be the new normal.  Yet under President Donald J. Trump who has instituted policies that are intended to work, unemployment is near a 50 year low and wages are quickly rising.  Also, at the fastest pace since late 2009, and before accounting for inflation it was found that in September total compensation for private-sector workers increased 2.9 percent from a year earlier.  Workers’ salaries increased 3.1 percent from a year earlier, the fastest since 2008 if just wages and salaries are accounted for and benefits excluded.  Additionally, median annual household income grew 3.7 percent in September from a year earlier, to a new record high of $63,007 reported Sentier Research.  And after increasing three percent in the second quarter, productivity grew 2.2 percent in the third quarter the fastest increase in four years. In comparison, productivity has grown by an average of about two percent annually since World War II.   And productivity had slowed to about one percent since the end of the internet boom in 2000.


Final Thoughts


America does not need Obama’s Democrat Socialist values supported by Democrats, liberals, liberal groups, and the mainstream media.   It is this ideology that has ruined some of the finest cities in America. (How Decades Of Democratic Rule Ruined Some Of Our Finest Cities).  And it is not a coincidence that once the Democrats took control, many of the greatest cities in America became poverty-infested hellholes.  For example, cities such as Baltimore, Buffalo, Chicago, Saint Louis, Philadelphia, Oakland and Memphis were once some of the finest cities to live in America.  However, after extended periods of Democrat control these cities became one festering crisis after another. And although these cities are devastated by crime and poverty voters continue to vote Democrat election after election. (Poverty, Crime And Human Feces: The Worst Cities In America Are The Ones Being Run By Democrats ). If America is to continue the political revolution that was started in 2016, voters must vote the Socialist Democrats out of office on Tuesday, November 6, 2018, that have destroyed America economically and morally.
