Chuck Lewis on Moyers: 935 Lies, A National Crisis Must Watch Video

Posted by Larry Doyle on July 2nd, 2014 7:39 AM |

How unsettling that as we approach the anniversary of our nation’s independence that we find ourselves a nation in crisis.

What is at the core of our crisis? Very simply, the truth, or dare I say the lack thereof. If the truth is fundamental to our national well being — and I for one think it is — then listen to what the highly acclaimed investigative journalist Chuck Lewis recently said to Bill Moyers:

“We really have a problem here. If we don’t know what the truth is in this country, then we don’t have a country. It’s end of story. It’s not our country anymore. This is fundamental.”

Gut check.

Those who have played competitive sports know there comes a point in time during the game when one needs to dig ever deeper for the intestinal will and fortitude to press on in pursuit of victory.

As a nation, I firmly believe we are at that very point. Will we answer the call or allow our opponents to determine the manner in which the game is played and seriously influence the  outcome? The fact is the “game” I talk about today is in fact no game at all. I am talking about the future of our nation. . . . and I am pissed off and sick and tired as I think about this topic. What topic?  (more…)
