IMPORTANT NOTICE: The blogger has received notice of new responsibilities relevant to new "laws" coming from the European Union. The blogger receives no personally indentifiable information. As the task of understanding just what this new "law" (not applicable to American citizens) means will take some time, The Musical Patriot respectfully asks citizens in the European Union to cease and desist from accessing this blog for the time being. I completely regret the need for this request. When things are clearer, I will have more to say. I look forward to welcoming Europeans back to this blog. Europeans and others are instead directed to my new blog with a new host. (See link in post below.)

News Media a Direct Threat to U.S. Democracy.
This will be a theme during the coming week. By trying to normalize the candidacy of Donald Trump, the media is evincing an outrageous and despicable irresponsibility.
According to today's New York Times, the vast majority of major donors to the Republican Party and Republican campaigns in the past are declining to donate to Trump, endangering his campaign.
But free media can make up the difference. The media must be called out for their colossal neglect of their duty to inform.
We must not be afraid to name names.
Please visit back here during the week for more on this most important issue.
