I am Hillary’s Love Child

By Bob Ferris

Given what we have seen lately in terms of a general trampling of the truth in this election, why can’t I just say the above? I put forth this statement because someone recently asked—after I mentioned that the post she sent around bashing Hillary and praising Jill Stein was written by a woman in Australia known for writing about astrology along with American political activism and posted on a site registered in Panama and owned by a pro-Palestine, Israeli businessman named Daniel Treisman—why does any of that matter?  It matters because American voters should make decisions based on fact and those in foreign countries or foreign agents should not f**k with our elections particularly by injecting falsehoods (the asterisks are for the sake of my 95 year-old mom).

About Us from World News Daily Report
Think I am overstating the ridiculousness of this issue?  Recently the World News Report Daily posted a story claiming that Yoko Ono had an affair with Hillary Clinton.  Who is WNRD?  Turns out they do not want you to know in terms of real ownership but they have the above statement on their site.  The statement is bad whether it is true or not.

But this fake story gets blasted all over the internet—particularly on right wing sites like Conservative  America, World Politicus, US Newsflash,  GOP the Daily Dose and MR Conservative  —including being highlighted in the video below.  Where this fellow goes on and on about this relationship that never happened.

Now I am not a Bible scholar by any measure but perhaps Mr. Beckwith missed some of the following passages in the King James Version of the Bible regarding rumors and the spreading of lies. Perhaps he should spend a little time looking at his own life rather than the lives of others.
James 1:26 - If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion [is] vain.
Psalms 34:13 - Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
Matthew 12:36 - But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
Proverbs 17:4 - A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; [and] a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.
2 Timothy 2:16 - But shun profane [and] vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.
Obviously from my last post and from this one, I do think it matters. I think it matters a lot.  We got Trump because we did not steward our country and political process properly.  We let our population become susceptible to this claptrap by not demanding better educations for our children and not holding those who lead us or provide our information to appropriate or defensible standards.

So the Russian, Israelis and others feed us crap for breakfast and we not only gobble it up with glee we invite our friends over to share the feast. Though it would be easy for us to simply say that Donald Trump has made us a country with a big “kick me” sign on our back that probably gives him too much credit because this is clearly a self-inflicted wound.  And the sooner we do something about it the better.  The American political arena has been and is something to behold but it should not and cannot become the playground of foreign powers or those who would destroy our core principles by spreading lies.
