Apparently my ISP’s automated system that informed me that there were no outages in my area was wrong. Because Sunday afternoon my Internet popped back on of its own accord in the same way it does when there is a cable outage in the area.
I immediately got on Safari and started surfing to see what news I missed.
But about five minutes in, I stopped.
As frustrating as it was to not have internet service for seven hours, I actually found it refreshing to not be under constant bombardment from the media.
It was a beautiful fall day yesterday. The sky was that deep cerulean blue of autumn. And the sun was warm and soothing after several months of being blistering and unforgiving.
But it wasn’t until I was cut off from it that I realized just how relentless the media’s bombardment has been over the last two years.
Americans have been living under our own London Blitz. Only, instead of bombs filled with TNT, we’re being barraged with weaponized Fake News.
Everything is a BREAKING story.
Everything is a crisis.
Every single day something is bellowed at us while these media hacks set their hair on fire.
It’s been unyielding.
Yesterday, being without internet, I found myself for the first time in a long while without that persistent knot in my chest.
And it actually felt pretty good.
So when my internet popped back on, I chose to continue my day as if it was still out.
I had no idea just how badly I needed a break until I took one.
There’s a movie from about thirty years ago called “Hope and Glory” that takes place during the London Blitz in the fall of 1940.
The main character is a young boy in the heart of London. So we see the Blitz through the eyes of this child.
And at one point in the film, his mother sends him and his siblings off to the country to get out of the daily German bombardment.
That’s how I felt yesterday. My internet going down was like getting put on a train for the country. It was so tranquil and lovely – enjoying a sunny, fall day without the incessant barrage of hysterical, over-the-top fake news.
Let me tell you, last night, I slept better than I have in months.
Now, this relentless bombardment from the media isn’t an unexpected side effect of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
It is deliberate.
It is planned.
The goal since January 20, 2017 was to create this feeling that the Trump Presidency is chaotic and out of control. So the media never lets up. Every story is delivered with gasping horror or over-the-top, hair-on-fire “well-I-nevering.” And it’s all done on purpose.
They hope to make the American people so discombobulated that we want Trump out just to make the chaos end.
You know exactly what I mean, because you’ve been experiencing this relentless bombardment too.
They want to throw us off kilter, and leave us feeling like there’s never a minute to breathe.
You turn off the news, and it screams at you from the pages of the newspaper. You put down the paper and they strafe you from social media. You’re besieged by your favorite television shows as they assail you with their own attacks on President Trump.
Music, movies, television, Facebook, Twitter – these endless bombardments hound our every moment.
It’s almost as if the media is … how should I put the … the enemy of the people.
They’re laying siege to us from every direction – hoping to intimidate us into abandoning the President and voting for their masters in the Democrat Party.
Instead of an aerial campaign, it is a digital and virtual campaign.
And it never ever ends.
It isn’t the Trump White House that is chaotic.
It’s the media.
And they’re doing it on purpose.
So do yourself a favor and pretend for just one day you have no internet service.
Shut them off and shut them up. Enjoy your own virtual day in the country.
Trust me. At the end of that restful day, you’ll sleep like a baby.
