GARYWORDS by The Real GabbyGary – I’m sorry, but, any truly conscientious person who has been paying close attention to the daily, real news coming out of Washington, D.C., the home of the United States Congress, White House and various federal agencies, should already understand why the Impeachment Inquiry in the House of Representatives is taking place. However, some comments made by Facebook Friends, indicate this is not the case.
GARYTALK.COM – From time to time, we reach back into some earlier commentary made a few years ago and republish it here. The following is from a blog I wrote on December 12, 2012, during the years our United States President was Barack Obama. It was written by me at the time in response to something someone posted on Facebook that was shared often by other Facebook members. The original message that was shared prompted me to write about it on a Google Blog I had started in January of 2011. My article was called “A Country of Many Religions and A Few Arrogant Attitudes”. Here is what I wrote:
GARYTALK.COM – Most true Journalists are NOT “the enemy of the people” and do NOT produce and publish “fake news” for their readers and viewers to consume, as the 45th United States President, Donald J. Trump, attempts to mislead his followers to believe. Coming from a career of gathering and reporting news as a Journalist for several decades, now that I’m semi-retired, I can’t resist weighing in on what’s been happening recently. President Trump is constantly confusing the issue, and, possibly purposely, or inadvertently, causing extreme harm to the American democracy, in many ways, but to narrow this down a bit, this is about his claims of “fake news”. Calling it that is far from the truth.
GARYTALK.COM – Facebook is ramping up it’s efforts to respond to the real threat to the United States democratic process this country’s intelligence agencies are warning about. The social media giant’s members were inundated with disinformation, misinformation and other campaigns meant to steer voters’ choices at the 2016 ballot box. There is fear that the persuasiveness of highly suspect untrue details being spread like wildfire by, sometimes, unsuspecting users via the Facebook Friends “sharing” posts to one another, may affect upcoming elections. Facebook has introduced at least one wrung in it’s plan to get voter truth back into the election system by turning off one possible avenue of misinformation. Let me explain.
