This nation is at a crossroads. There are many indications that there is a significant push by Marxists to step out of the shadows and claim title to our institutions, pushing the idea of capitalism out of the public square the same way they pushed God out of the schools. Swirling in the air of social media is the idea that to resist capitalism is to resist all of the ills of society, as if capitalism caused them. Unfortunately, this shows a determined lack of intelligence, reinforced by Marxist professors.
Here's what I know: no one is telling the story, no one is standing up for the America we should have. Republicans use the Constitution to get elected to continue the Ponzi scheme of government programs. Democrats want to replace the electorate in order to get the election results they want to in turn continue the Ponzi scheme of government programs. None of them will ever have a reason to look backward at individual freedom as anything other than a threat to their power.
We elected Donald Trump, because he was neither of them and we all knew that. The protests against him are just temper tantrums by minorities (numerical, not racial) who are accustomed to dictating to the rest of the populace how to act, what to think and what to say through judicial fiat. Trump threatens their hegemony and he must be put down. They are guided, encouraged and sometimes hired by the Marxists, who want it all.
Who is fighting for America and Americans? We are, we have no other dog in the fight. We don't serve a political party, we don't owe allegiance to any PAC, or organization, we don't even have any "big investor" to manipulate our message. We have you and you have us.
Lies of Omission is more than just a film. It is more than just some entertainment. It is the start of a weapon against the lies and deceit of both political parties, the media and the universities. Now that Barack Obama is out of office and it is acceptable to distrust government again, Lies of Omission and 12 Round Productions have a chance to reach thousands of misinformed, ill-informed and misled citizens of the nation with a different message, one of righteous suspicion; of skeptical disbelief in the way government is dispensed.
I cannot express how critical this film could be. Having now edited the substance of it and allowing for the talent to make it beautiful, I can say without equivocation that it is turning out to be everything I hoped it would. It is the type of film that gets into ones head, where quotes come back time and time again to reaffirm certain truths. The power of this film is that it can do the work of any number of books one might read. Because the people who appear in it, who have a dedication to freedom, who have spent their lives in this struggle, know how to communicate complex ideas and present them with clarity.
If we stand a chance to change the discussion, to invigorate the passion for freedom, to enlist others to our cause, it starts with this film.
We, despite the generosity of our supporters, many of them readers of this and other blogs and despite the thrift of our expenditures, are still a little shy of the goal. We need to budget for creation of the DVD, shipping and we need to advertise to get the word out to get the widest possible audience. We will be applying to several film festivals and trying desperately to obtain a distribution deal, but we have to plan to do most of this ourselves. If so, that is much more expensive. So, I would ask a few things: If you have an "in" with a radio show, or local paper, anything where we might be able to present Lies of Omission to raise awareness and demand we would be happy to have a representative give an interview. Media requests can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org We are in the final leg of this project, where things like this matter.
Already, we have dates March 2nd for the Andrea Shea King Show and March 7th for The Hagmann Report, but momentum is important.
The film is still scheduled to be out in June and that is coming quicker than it seems.
Thank you all for all you have done and please understand that we recognize none of this would have been possible without everyone's help. It makes me proud to be a part of this community.
