    A Free Press is the Best Friend the American People Have

    We join 350 newspapers in America in stating, "The free press of America is not the enemy."

    A look at the world indicates that only 13 percent of the world's population, ONLY 13 percent of people, enjoy a free press.

    A resurgence of purely false news has been stimulated by radicals, fringe groups, political ideologues and sometimes even foreign nations bent on creation conflict and confusion in the United States, such as the "trolls from Russia."  Sadly, the carefully crafted "alternative truth" that they have published to manipulate our political process has been believed by many unsuspecting Americans. George Orwell, in his book 1984, carefully predicted  that despots would use "alternative facts" to promote political lies. 

    But today, we are speaking of our mainstream press -- the powerful and reputable beacons of good reporting. The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Fort Worth Star Telegram, Dallas Morning News, Boston Globe, Washington Post, CNN, NPR, NBC, CBS, and on and on, have strict requirements of confirmation, double checking facts, and specifying sources. We at www.BootheGlobalPerspectives.com also believe in reporting the truth, sharing sources, and confirming information before we publish. We report the truth, even if it is not pretty. No doubt we have seen Trump use his Twitter messages to distract Americans and to promote his personal (sometimes uninformed) opinions. The Washington Post has recently counted and documented over 4,000 times that this U.S. president has not told the truth to the American people in his statements and tweets. …

    Early NRA LEADERSHIP BELIEVED IN GUN CONTROL

    Whatever Happened to the Socratic Process in America?

    It seems that political discourse has devolved to people yelling at one another. The louder and more emotional the voice, the more it seems that "that voice" has won. People speak, but they do not listen. They do not interact. They react. Imagine if you can two men, both Adolf Hitler, in a room yelling at one another. That seems to be what we have today in our political discourse...
