Hello this is Darrell Castle with today’s Castle Report. Today is the 9th day of April in this the year of our Lord 2021. Today I will be talking about the shocking levels of lies upon which almost everything presently seems to be based. Previously only the government was the brunt of jokes about liars such as:

How do you know they are lying? Their lips are moving.

Now the government seems to be using private companies to outsource its lies. So that it’s hard to tell the difference anymore.

The Castle Family is doing fine and enjoying this beautiful spring weather with its flowers and everything green. No virus in this family that we know of and for that we are grateful. I suppose its spring in Los Angeles as well or so the family daughter tells us.

Government outsourcing its lies, and…

In my opening paragraph I mentioned that the government seems to be outsourcing its lies to private liars. But that doesn’t tell the whole story. My theory is that this government, in conjunction with big tech and big media, wants to take actions against the American people that are so egregious and unconstitutional that even Americans might wake up and object. To avoid such objection and to hide behind a corporate veil, government gets, through persuasion or profit, corporations to do its dirty work. They always cite their experts for why us peons are supposed to just shut up and listen to the science.

For example, earlier this week Dr. Fauci announced that the federal government would not require or mandate vaccine passports. That statement is disingenuous and a good example of outsourcing because we know that President Biden is working privately with tech companies to develop a vaccine passport via a cell phone app. The government would not have to unconstitutionally order it because private business would do it for them. You want to get on this airplane, where’s your app? You want to shop here, rent a car here, or get medical treatment here, where’s your app?

Government uses “private” businesses to attack election integrity and other laws

Sometimes the federal government even uses private business to attack state laws it considers unacceptable, Georgia for example. It seems that down in Georgia the legislature looked at their election laws and decided they could do better. The new law requires voter identification which seems like a very good idea to me. We need an ID for almost everything these days to prove that we are who we say we are, and we haven’t stolen someone’s identity. The new Georgia law is far less restrictive than the election laws in both New York and Delaware which is President Biden’s home state.

Georgia has longer early voting, absentee voting without requiring an excuse etc. but the other states do not have such liberal provisions. Nevertheless, the President and many others chose to use it to make partisan political points. To put it bluntly, they lied through their teeth to advance their own political ideology unfazed by the damage their lies caused. The President can’t be given a pass because of his dementia since his lying about Georgia continues unabated even in his lucid moments.

Moving the All-star Game

He recommended that Major League Baseball move its all-star game out of Atlanta which it did, moving it to Denver. That move cost the state of Georgia an estimated $100 million. Given that Atlanta is more than 50% black and Denver is only about 9.5% black that move had a disproportionate impact on black people. He also at least implied that the Masters Golf Tournament should be moved out of Augusta where it has been played for 87 years, but the tournament said no thanks.

Apparently to President Biden requiring people to submit some form of ID with an absentee ballot instead of just a signature is so evil its worse that the Jim Crow laws. He compared it to apartheid which I suppose reflects the Democrat view that black people are incapable of obtaining an ID. They are incapable of showing an ID to get an absentee ballot just as they do when voting in person. Florida Senator Marco Rubio wrote a letter to Commissioner of Baseball Rob Manfred, concerning his decision to move the game. Which I must share with you in its entirety.

Well, Commish? Will you also pull out of China, a government that holds no elections worthy of the name?

I write to ask you whether you intend to maintain your membership at Augusta National Golf Club. As you are well aware, the exclusive members-only club is located in the State of Georgia.

Last week, you “decided that the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport is by relocating this year’s All-Stare Game” from Atlanta because of Georgia’s revised election law. It is a decision that will have a bigger impact on countless small and minority owned business in and around Atlanta, than the new election law ever will. And one that reeks of hypocrisy.

Will Major League Baseball now end its engagement with nations that do not hold elections at all like China and Cuba? Will you end your lucrative financial relationship with Tencent, a company with deep ties to the Communist Party and actively helps the Chinese Government hunt down and silence political dissidents?

Since Major League Baseball now appears eager to use its platform to demonstrate unwavering support for fundamental human rights, will you cease your relationship with the Chinese Government, which at this very moment is committing genocide against the Uyghurs Muslims in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR)?

No reasonable expectation

I am of course, under no expectation any of this will happen. Taking the All-Star Game out of Georgia is an easy way to signal virtues without significant financial fallout. But speaking out against the Chinese Communist Party would involve a significant loss of revenue and being closed out of a lucrative market.

In the end, as a citizen of a free nation, you, and Major League Baseball, have the right to speak out against laws in the U.S. you disagree with, even if it is on the basis of false information. What would be truly bold, however, is if you would speak out on behalf of the voiceless who face arbitrary imprisonment, forced sterilization, coerced abortions, rape, and other horrific acts at the hands of one of your business partners. I am under no illusion that Major League Baseball will sacrifice business revenue on behalf of its alleged corporate values.

Similarly, I am under no illusion you intend to resign as a member from Augusta National Golf Club. To do so would require a personal sacrifice, as opposed to the woke corporate virtue signaling of moving the All-Star Game from Atlanta.

Big media don’t care whether it’s true or not

Well, thank you Senator Rubio for that eloquent put down of this lying corporate shill. It is indeed uplifting to see someone in a position of leadership who has the courage to point out the obvious to those too blind to see. You may say, who cares what Major League Baseball does, but this game and the lying propaganda surrounding it are symbols of one of the primary wrongs in modern society. The wrong that must be corrected is not who gets the All-Star Game, but whether truth still has meaning.

I continue to hear many sports announcers following the lying script for their listeners as if the story were true. The truth seems to be, however, that they don’t care if the story is true or not as long as it advances the political agenda one more notch. When I mentioned earlier that the federal government is outsourcing its lies to private industry that is especially true for today’s corporate media. The refusal to cover the story of Hunter Biden’s laptop which contained emails revealing the cosey and very lucrative relationship between the Communist Chinese and the Biden family is but one example.

If you can’t find it, create it

The media is very selective in which stories it chooses to cover but if one can’t be found to support the preferred narrative that particular network, publication, etc. will simply create one that fits. The best example of this is the interview of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis by 60 minutes on CBS News. It seems that 60 Minutes was so anxious to present a scenario in which the Florida, no lockdown, no mask requirement was dangerous and since the Governor did not give it any credence, they simply edited his words to make him say only what they preferred that he say. He was not amused and held a press conference to explain what happened.

They cut out everything that showed that their narrative was a piece of horse manure. And it shows you how dishonest—these are smear merchants. That’s why no one trusts corporate media. They are a disaster in what they are doing. They knew what they were doing was a lie. They know that we know they are lying, and yet they continue to lie. And they lied, and they lied, and they lied. We offered them the information and they declined to interview the key people they didn’t want to let go of the narrative. Well, guess what? There’s gonna be consequences for that. I know corporate media thinks that they can just run over people. You ain’t running over this governor. I’m punching back.

Government of NYC is ruining the city

Thank you, governor well said and thank, you for having the guts and determination to stand for truth. Why don’t we look at New York City by comparison to anywhere in Florida? The headline of The New York Post of April 7, 2021 reads Bell Tolls For NYC. The article points out that this time it is different for New York in that the decline might be permanent because of many factors. Not the least of those factors is the abominable leadership of Governor Cuomo and Mayor Bill DeBlasio.

The hard truth …

In New York the budget for this year is $212 billion with $4 billion in new taxes while businesses and residents are fleeing the state and the city in droves. By contrast Florida has 2 million more people but will get by on $97 billion this year. Due to excessive taxation, lockdowns, and generally treating any business or resident as a farmer treats his milk cattle, many in Florida are in favor of awarding Cuomo and DeBlasio dual employees of the month for Florida.

People in New York are afraid, the article points out. Murder up 45% last year and is up 13.5% over that this year. The Post asks the question, what business would want to come here now? Why would existing ones want to stay and pay this horrendous tax rate? The answer is no, no, no, and hell no we have given up on New York. Albany’s answer to the crime wave, put more handcuffs on cops. Turn just about every criminal suspect loose, empty the prisons and raise taxes, and let’s give $2.1 billion to illegal immigrants.

… from a paper still willing to tell it

That information was from an article in last Wednesday’s New York Post which unlike the Times is still willing to occasionally tell the truth and doesn’t seem interested in serving as an outsource for federal lies and unconstitutional actions. The Post article went on to say that quality of life is plummeting in New York while taxes are rocketing upward. The city faces a devastating future. Well not so in Florida folks. That state is doing just fine coming back from the virus and resisting attempts to turn it into New York despite the lies of CBS News. New York is a sad story though, because it was the greatest city in the world just a couple of years ago.

Finally, folks Major League Baseball, a once great American institution and tradition, and New York City a once great American City have now fallen to cowardly corporate, media, government, wokeness. What’s the difference between the three? One of them has people with guns who can lock you away in a hole for a long time, and of course, they have their experts to explain it all.

At least that’s the way I see it.

Until next time folks,

This is Darrell Castle.
