The Trump/Russia Collusion Fake News Fairy Tale: Why Liberals Redefine the Meaning of Words

July 19, 2017

Mirage-600-LI

The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so. – Ronald Reagan

FoxNews.com reports that on Martha McCallum’s program…

Professor Jonathan Turley said the president’s critics are so eager to “bag a Trump” that their hunt extends the definition of a crime “well beyond its legal moorings.”

Martha MacCallum reported the latest source of Trump criticism is a previously undisclosed meeting between the president and Vladimir Putin at a German dinner.

However, the White House responded by saying Trump got up from his seat to approach his wife who was assigned a seat next to Putin and his translator.

Trump apparently spoke with the trio for some time.

Turley, of George Washington University in Foggy Bottom, D.C., said Trump critics “reflect a level of hyperventilation we have in Washington now.”

He said that collusion on its own is not a crime, but that any conspiracy involved might be.

Turley said that people will not like a world where “treason” is more broadly defined in that way.

He said that Trump has been accused of committing crimes, despite his alleged actions falling well short of what separates a crime from a political faux pais.

“People are so eager to bag a Trump that they are willing to take these crimes and take them well beyond their legal moorings,” he said.

On July 11th, Alan M. Dershowitz, Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law, Emeritus and author of Taking the Stand: My Life in the Law and Electile Dysfunction, wrote the following op ed for foxnews.com

Special Counsel Robert Mueller will surely be looking into the meeting between Donald Trump, Jr., and a Russian lawyer named Natalia Veselnitskaya.  Part of the meeting was also attended by Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law, and Paul Manafort, who at the time was running Trump’s campaign.  It now seems clear from the emails that the Trump people went to the meeting expecting to be given dirt on Hillary Clinton from the Russian government.  The question remains, if this is all true, is it criminal?

The first issue that must be addressed by Mueller is whether any existing criminal statutes would be violated by collusion between a campaign and a foreign government, if such collusion were to be proved? Unless there is a clear violation of an existing criminal statute, there would be no crime.

Obviously if anyone conspired in advance with another to commit a crime – such as hacking the DNC – that would be criminal. But merely seeking to obtain the work product of a prior hack would be no more criminal than a newspaper publishing the work product of thefts such as the Pentagon Papers and the material stolen by Snowden and Manning.   Moreover, the emails sent to Trump Jr. say that the dirt peddled by Veselnitskaya came from “official documents.”  No mention is made of hacking or other illegal activities. So it is unlikely that attendance at the meeting violated any criminal statute.

Perhaps mere collusion by a campaign with a foreign government should be made a crime, so as to prevent future contamination of our elections. But it is not currently a crime.

Whether or not such collusion, if it occurred, is a crime, it is clear that the American people have the right to know whether any sort of collusion –legal or illegal – took place.  And, if so, what was its nature.

The Mueller investigation is limited to possible criminal activity.  Probing the moral, political or other non-criminal implications of collusion with, or interference by, Russia is beyond the jurisdiction of the special counsel.  It is the role of Congress, not the Criminal Division of the Justice Department, to make changes in existing laws.  Perhaps mere collusion by a campaign with a foreign government should be made a crime, so as to prevent future contamination of our elections.  But it is not currently a crime. 

Nor will it be easy to draft a criminal statute prohibiting a campaign from using material provided by a foreign power, without trenching on the constitutional rights of candidates.  But this is all up to Congress and the courts, not the special counsel, with his limited jurisdiction.

That is why the entire issue of alleged collusion with, and interference by, the Russians should be investigated openly by an independent nonpartisan commission, rather than by a prosecutor behind the closed doors of a grand jury. 

The end result of a secret grand jury investigation will be an up or down determination whether to indict or not to indict.  If there are no indictments, that will end the matter. The special counsel may issue a report summarizing the results of his investigation, but many experts believe that such reports are improper, since the subjects of the investigation do not have the right to present exculpatory evidence to the grand jury, which typically hears only one side of the case. Beyond any report, there will also be selective leaks, such as the many that have already occurred.  Leaks, too, tend to be one-sided and agenda driven.

A public non-partisan commission investigation, or even one conducted by partisans in Congress, would be open for the most part.  They would hear all sides of the story, and the public would be able to judge for itself whether there was improper collusion.  A commission or Congressional committee could also recommend changes in the law for the future.

The American people need to know precisely what the Russians tried to do and did – and what, if anything, the Trump campaign knew and did.  These issues go beyond a cops-and-robber whodunit. They involve the very essence of our democracy.

It is quite refreshing to read the writings of a level-headed Liberal for a change.

All average Americans, like you and me, see on Liberal-produced television newscasts or read in Liberal-written newspapers or magazines, are attacks on President Trump, which feature all of the common sense and objective level-headedness of Bobcat Goldthwait.

As I have noted numerous times in the last seven months, Modern American Liberals are throwing an unending National Temper Tantrum over the loss of Hillary Clinton to American Businessman and Entrepreneur Donald J. Trump in the 2016 Presidential Election.

The other factor, besides this ongoing temper tantrum, which has led to the Liberals proclaiming criminal activity on behalf of President Trump and his son when there is none, is the fact that Liberals lead their lives in a state of perpetual confusion.

Liberals believe that

Rachel Dozeal is black….

Elizabeth Warren is an American Indian.

Al Sharpton is a Reverend.

Al Gore is a scientist.

George Stephanopoulos is a journalist.

Bernie Sanders is presidential.

Barack Hussein Obama is honest.

And, somehow, someway, if they could get rid of Trump, Hillary Clinton would be given the Presidency.

Heck. Hillary’s husband, Bubba, doesn’t even know what the definition of “is”, is.

The good news is that while the Democrat Party, their Propaganda Arm, the MSM, and their Social Media Operatives continue to sound like Jan Brady, screaming

Russia! Russia! Russia!

…their whining is falling on deaf ears.

Per Hannity.com

A new poll released by left-leaning Bloomberg proves what most Americans have been saying for months; the nation is facing some big problems, and the Russia-Trump conspiracy theory isn’t one of them.

The survey, conducted last week and released on Tuesday, shows that just 6% of American voters think allegations of Russian collusion in the 2016 general election is a major issue facing the nation.

Individuals were asked “Which of the following do you see as the most important issue facing the nation right now?” Healthcare reform was at the top of the list with 35% of Americans seeing at is the largest problem in the US, followed by unemployment at 13%; terrorism at 11%; and immigration at 10%.

Near the bottom was the “Relationship with Russia” with just 6%.

The poll flies in the face of non-stop media coverage of the Russian-Trump witch hunt that has dominated headlines for over a year.

The survey also highlighted other positive development for the Trump administration, mostly regarding the President’s performance on jobs and the economy.

“The latest Bloomberg National Poll shows 58 percent of Americans believe they’re moving closer to realizing their own career and financial aspirations, tied for the highest recorded in the poll since the question was first asked in February 2013,” said the report.

Just like adults engaging in a conversation tune out a loud, bratty child who keeps trying to interrupt them to call attention to themselves, so are average Americans tuning out those intent on pushing the “Trump/Russia Collusion Fake News Fairy Tale”.

Average Americans are more concerned about adult matters, like feeding our families, keeping or finding jobs, the future of our children and grandchildren…

and MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

New Poll: 2/3rds of Americans Think That the Main Stream Media is full of Sh…Err…”Fake News”.

May 26, 2017

Russia-Russia-NRD-600-a

America’s Main Stream Media realized shortly after the American People elected Donald J. Trump as our 45th President that in order to  have access to President Trump and to be able to file news reports covering the actions that he is going to take as President, they are going to have to accurately report what actually happens.

So, they decided instead, to write fictional stories and attempt to give them believability and gravitas by claiming to have received the information for their stories from “anonymous sources”.

At the rate that these stories are being debunked, most Americans have accurately surmised that the MSM’s “anonymous sources” are the voices inside their own over-sized heads.

Foxnews.com reports that

Nearly two-thirds of Americans think the mainstream press is full of “fake news,” according to the latest Harvard-Harris poll.

65 percent of voters believe there is a significant amount of fake news in the mainstream media, and the sentiment is held by a majority of voters across the ideological spectrum.

80 percent of Republicans, 60 percent of independents and 53 percent of Democrats reflected this distrust of the media.

84 percent of voters said it is hard to know what news to believe online.

The Harvard-Harris online survey of 2,006 registered voters was conducted between May 17 and May 20.

On “The Fox News Specialists,” Eric Bolling said the media had a particularly bad week last week, with The Washington Post and The New York Times publishing negative stories about President Trump that proved to be “duds.”

“Two publications that people really rely on to have real news and real researched news and journalistic standards blew it last week badly,” Bolling said.

Rob O’Neill lamented that the media has forgotten the importance of honesty, and too many journalists are now reporting on what’s going to advance their personal agendas.

Bolling agreed, and added that many of these anti-Trump stories cite unnamed sources.

“They’re undermining their own credibility,” Bolling said. “If you have a source, name your source. Or don’t run with it.”

During his nationally-syndicated radio Program yesterday, Rush Limbaugh hit the proverbial nail on the head when he said,

I mean, the media is conducting a political assassination. It’s beyond a coup, folks. I mean, what’s going on is beyond a coup. And the leak story has now taken on new levels here that — like the U.K. prime minister, Theresa May, is gonna lecture Trump in a meeting today for what the New York Times is leaking about details of the bombing in Manchester, as though Trump has anything to say about what ends up in the New York Times.

But apparently U.S. intelligence sources leaked whatever they knew to British media and other media, and pictures of the bomb, remnants of the bomb and so forth appeared. The U.K. prime minister is very, very, very upset and is gonna call Trump on the carpet for allowing this and making this happen. Does she not know? Does she really not know that Trump has nothing to say over what’s in the New York Times? I go through the news, folks, it is surreal.

…They are currently engaged, the Drive-Bys are engaged — I think we just need to be honest. Some people are calling it a coup. I think we’re witnessing a political assassination that is being conducted by the media and of course joined by the Democrat Party and other leftists around the world.

Every day, every day, four o’clock to 5:30 in the afternoon, there is a new blockbuster, supposed blockbuster that shows up in either the New York Times or the Washington Post. And if you read the entire story, you will find that the details suggested by the headline and the early reporting in the story actually cannot be backed up! It’s the most amazing thing.

I’ve got a break coming up. I’ll give you an example of this that happened just yesterday. It’s over the top. There’s an allegation about Trump and the Russians or whatever, I forget what it is specifically here. At the end of the story, they basically say, “But we can’t confirm any of this. Nobody has any solid evidence to confirm.” Well, then why do the story in the first place? Whatever this is, it is not journalism. And that is what I think is gnawing at you.

This isn’t journalism. It’s all happening under the guise of journalism, under the pretext that it’s journalism and reporting of news, but it isn’t. This is not journalism. This is political and character assassination. Now, it always happens to Republicans. It’s usually much more subtle and not nearly as regular and intense. But Trump has changed the game to the point now that’s all it is, all day, every day. There is no break from it. It never ends.

The Main Stream Media has gotten so desperate to bring down the juggernaut that is President-elect Donald J. Trump that that they have adopted the strategy of publishing unsubstantiated lie after unsubstantiated lie in order to assuage their own hurt feelings after their failure to aid lousy Democratic Candidate Hillary Clinton in her quest to become the 45th President of the United States of America.

The depth of their grief and the blind rage of their ensuing temper tantrum has, without a doubt, wiped out any vestiges of journalistic integrity that remained after decades of being the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party.

I can remember my late Daddy (Southern colloquialism for male parental unit) bring home the National Enquirer, the Star, and even the Weekly World News from the grocery store , to read with his morning coffee.

Compared to the anonymous source-driven lies being peddled by the Main Stream Media about our 45th President, The Weekly World News’ legendary stores about “Batboy”, in retrospect, now seem like Pulitzer Prize-winning Journalism.

The good news, as shown by the poll in the above article, is that the majority of Americas are now buying the B.S. that the MSM is selling.

President-elect Trump will never be able to please the Main Stream Media.

Nor should he have to.

The Presidency of the United States of America is the most important leadership position on the Face of God’s Green Earth.

The Main Stream Media knows that.

The problem is the Main Stream Media is still having a conniption fit (Southern colloquialism for being upset over something to the point insanity) over the election of Donald J. Trump as the next President by us rubes here in Flyover Country.

The Main Stream Media not only has lost their meal ticket with the defeat of the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, but they also have to face the reality of being “punked” for at least four years by Donald J. Trump, who treats them like a school of Largemouth Bass, baiting the hook with the promise of a big announcement or story, causing them to pack the room wherever Trump is speaking, only to find out that they have been used to gain free publicity for Mr. Trump and whatever cause he is trying to forward that day.

Or, refusing to play nice with them when they slander him.

Trump has made the Media look tremendously naïve and stupid on several occasions, in scenes reminiscent of Lucy Van Pelt promising to hold the football for Charlie Brown to kick, only to pull it away at the last minute leaving a helpless Charlie Brown to wipe out, tumbling head over heels.

The Main Stream Media are no longer in control of the dissemination of the news…and they know it.

Between Trump’s playing them like Charlie Daniels playing a fiddle and average Americans becoming their own reporters through the use of Social Media, “professional journalists” have watched their influence over the daily lives of Americans dwindle and diminish right before their very eyes.

And, quite frankly, they don’t like it one bit.

That is why they continue in this poorly-received quest to try to bring down Trump.

Even if no one is watching, listening, reading, or believing them.

Until He Comes,

WaPo Peddles Fake News Story About Trump/Russia Collusion. Eyewitnesses Immediately Refute It. I’m Shocked. Shocked I Tell You.

May 16, 2017

161031090422-fake-news-1024x576

Y’know, boys and girls, as I have written before, I have never seen a Political Ideology lose their collective shi…err…minds like the Far Left Liberals of the Democratic Party and their minions in the Main Stream Media, have.

I have never seen this many people show their backsides at the same time, since the streaking craze back when I was in high school in the 70s. –

Breitbart.com reports that

Current and former U.S. officials, supposedly concerned that President Trump had shared some “highly classified information” with the Russian foreign minister and ambassador to the U.S. last week, leaked that information to the Washington Post in an article published Monday.

However, the report admits that it is “unlikely” Trump broke any laws.

“As president, Trump has broad authority to declassify government secrets, making it unlikely that his disclosures broke the law,” the report said.

In addition, his national security adviser, who was at the meeting, told the Post nothing was shared that was not already publicly known.

 “At no time were any intelligence sources or methods discussed and no military operations were disclosed that were not already known publicly,” said Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster.

McMaster later told reporters at the White House, “Other senior officials who were present, including the secretary of state, remember the meeting the same way and have said so. Their on-the-record accounts should outweigh those of anonymous sources. I was in the room, it didn’t happen.”

“This story is false. The president only discussed the common threats that both countries faced,” added Dina Powell, Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategy, who also attended the meeting.

The current and former officials told the Post that Trump shared information with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak that was obtained by a U.S. partner through an intelligence-sharing agreement and was so sensitive it was withheld from U.S. allies and restricted within the U.S. government.

The officials said Trump’s disclosure risked cooperation from an ally that had access to the inner workings of the Islamic State, which they then shared details of with the Post.

The current and former officials told the Post that Trump discussed an Islamic State terrorist threat related to the use of laptop computers on aircraft.

They said that senior White House officials took steps to contain the damage, placing calls to the CIA and National Security Agency after the meeting.

The officials bashed the president, portraying him as “reckless.”

A “former senior U.S. official close to current administration officials” said Trump “seems to be very reckless, and doesn’t grasp the gravity of the things he’s dealing with, especially when it comes to intelligence and national security. And it’s all clouded because of this problem he has with Russia.”

They also claimed that Trump seemed to be “boasting” about his inside knowledge of the threat.

The officials said Trump “did not reveal the specific intelligence gathering method, but described how the Islamic State was pursuing elements of a specific plot and how much harm such an attack could cause under varying circumstances.”

“Most alarmingly, officials said, Trump revealed the city in the Islamic State’s territory where the U.S. intelligence partner detected the threat,” it said.

The officials then leaked the name of the city to the Post, which decided to withhold most of the plot details under the urging of current officials.

The officials said the name of the city would be useful for Russia to help identify the U.S. ally or intelligence capability involved.

The Post said the officials declined to identify the ally that collected the information, but said, “It is one that has previously voiced frustration with Washington’s inability to safeguard sensitive information related to Iraq and Syria.”

The officials claimed Trump  described measures the U.S. has taken or is contemplating to counter the threat, “including military operations in Iraq and Syria as well as other steps to tighten security,” but did not say what those were.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that was false.

“During President Trump’s meeting with Foreign Minister Lavrov a broad range of subjects were discussed among which were common efforts and threats regarding counter-terrorism.  During that exchange the nature of specific threats were discussed, but they did not discuss sources, methods or military operations,” he said.

As I have related to you before, I was a Radio News Director during college from 1978-1980, with a staff of 20 student reporters, who each received credit for producing and delivering a 5-minute newscast, once a week, on our College Radio Station.

I can remember sitting in the lecture hall of the (then) Memphis State University Journalism Building, listening to Dr. Williams, whom we all swore did the first newscast of KDKA, America’s first radio station, in 1920.  The class was “Introduction to Journalism” and Dr. Van Williams was telling us that the ”key to being a good journalist was objectivity”.

Now, in 2017, the Main Stream Media has made the term “Journalistic Integrity” an oxymoron.

All afternoon long on the Social Media, all of the Liberal Political Pundits, both ‘Professional” and self-proclaimed, were spreading the now-proven-to-be-false story about Trump giving secrets to the Russian Foreign Minister, in a demonstration of gullibility resembling the mass panic induced by Orson Welles’ national radio broadcast of a reading of H.G. Welles’ “War of the Worlds’ on October 2, 1938, which convinced Americans at the time that Martians had indeed landed on Earth and were starting an invasion.

It soon became very apparent to every American who was paying attention that The Washington Post had fabricated another story about a Trump/Russia collusion and actually had the lack of integrity to post it as reality.

Average Americans are winning the war against the “New Fascism” of the Tyranny of the Minority and the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party known as the Main Stream Media by the sharing of information through Social Media.

Americans are now living in a time when the Main Stream Media’s blatant propaganda is no longer believed at face value, as the evidence which refutes it is appearing in the live videos and photographs being shared on Facebook and other Social Media.

In this age of instantaneous communication via Social Media, Americans have become their own on-the-scene-reporters, often foiling the planned use of propaganda by outlets such as WaPo, simply by being there and sharing the event with their friends on Facebook or Instagram.

That contrary and factual information is then disseminated through the use of that same “New Media” to reach Americans from coast-to-cast, nullifying slanted stories delivered through the Traditional Media, sometimes even before they are released.

In this wonderful Technological Age that we are living in, average Americans have the ability to share information at the “speed of reality” itself. A fact which is the cause of great consternation and falling ratings to those news outlets who are attempting to be the Vanguard who ushers in a Trump Impeachment, clearing the way for some sort of magically-gifted “do-over” resulting in a Clinton Presidency.

Marshall McLuhan once wrote that

The Medium is the message.

He was saying that mass communication influences the way that we see things and that those bringing it have to be perceived as being trustworthy in order to be believed by those receiving their “message”.

Unfortunately for The Washington Post and the rest of the Main Stream Media, their history of pandering to Liberal Causes, the Democratic Party, and the Clintons, in particular, is well-documented and has led to their being dismissed by average Americans as, as Trump remarked, being known as purveyors of “fake news”.

Equally unfortunate for the Liberal Media, is that fact that Americans have become our own news reporters.

And therefore, propaganda does not work as well as it used to.

Unlike those fooled on that October night in 1930, Americans no longer implicitly trust the Main Stream Media.

Especially when they “jump the shark” as WaPo did yesterday.

November 8th, 2016 proved that, as The Who once sang

We won’t be fooled again.

…not as long as Americans stay informed.

NBC’s Holt Attempts to Prosecute Instead of Interview Trump. Honest Answers to Dishonest Journalism Ensue.

May 12, 2017

First-Hundred-NRD-600 

I’m not against the media. I’m against the FAKE media.” – President Donald J. Trump

Breitbart.com reports that

NBCNews.com on Thursday posted a two minute and 34 second preview clip of anchor Lester Holt’s exclusive sit-down with President Donald Trump. The clip features Holt conducting an interrogation-like interview in which the NBC personality interrupted Trump nine times and spoke over the president on many of those occasions.

In the clip, Holt can be seen questioning almost every statement made by Trump.

In one instance, Holt asked Trump about his May 9 letter ousting F.B.I Director James Comey in which Trump wrote, “I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation.”

Holt asked Trump, “Why did you put that in there?”

Trump replied, “Because he told me that. I mean, he told me…”

Before Trump could finish his sentence, Holt interrupted, asking, “He told you you weren’t under investigation regarding the Russian investigation?”

“Yeah, and I’ve heard that from others. I think…” Trump began to respond before Holt interrupted again.

“Was it in a phone call? Did you meet face-to-face?” Holt interjected, speaking over Trump.

“I had a dinner with him. He wanted to have dinner because he wanted to stay on. We had a very nice dinner at the White House…”

Holt spoke over Trump again, interrupting this time by asking, “He, he asked for the dinner?”

“A dinner was arranged. I think he asked for a dinner.”

Holt interrupted Trump again when Trump was explaining he knew that he wasn’t under investigation both from Comey three times and from a “committee level.”

“So that didn’t come directly from him?” Holt cut in and asked before Trump could finish his explanation about the times he says he heard from Comey that he wasn’t under investigation.

The Main Stream Media, as demonstrated in that interview by Lester Holt, gave up the appearance of objectivity a long time ago in favor of becoming the Modern Democratic Party’s Propaganda Arm and Ideology-Enforcing Vanguard.

The Main Stream Media has gotten so desperate to bring down the juggernaut that is President-elect Donald J. Trump that that they have adopted the strategy of publishing unsubstantiated lies in order to assuage their own hurt feeling after their failure to aid lousy Democratic Candidate Hillary Clinton in her quest to become the 45th President of the United States of America.

For example, yesterday they were floating the lie that ousted FBI Director James Comey was booted after wanting most money with which to fund an investigation of President Trump’s unproven “collusion” with Russia.

The depth of their grief and the blind rage of their never-ending temper tantrum has evidently wiped out any vestiges of journalistic integrity that remained after decades of being the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party.

As Trump so rightly and repeatedly pointed out, the Main Stream Media are so upset about Hillary’s loss that they have retaliated by publishing “Fake News” is the hope that somehow, someway they can succeed in driving Mr. Trump out of office and that, in doing so, somehow, someway, they Presidency would be given as a “Participation Trophy” to the Failed Party Presidential Candidate.

Pretty pathetic, huh?

President Trump will never be able to please the Main Stream Media.

Nor should he have to.

The Presidency of the United States of America is the most important leadership position on the Face of God’s Green Earth.

The Main Stream Media knows that.

The problem is, as stated earlier, the Main Stream Media is still having a conniption fit (Southern colloquialism for being upset over something to the point insanity) over the fact that us rubes here in the Heartland did not listen to what they were telling us to do and voted for Donald J. Trump over their Candidate of Choice, the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton.

The Main Stream Media not only lost their meal ticket with the defeat of the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, but they also must face the reality of being “punked” for at least four years by Donald J. Trump, who treats them like a school of Largemouth Bass, baiting the hook with the promise of a big announcement or story, causing them to pack the room wherever Trump is speaking, only to find out that they have been used to gain free publicity for Mr. Trump and whatever cause he is trying to forward that day.

Or, he just flat-out “trolls” them, as he did by announcing Comey’s firing the day before he met with the Russian Foreign Minister.

Or, as he did in this case, refusing to play nice with them when they slander him, he confronts them, like Daniel in the Lion’s Den and speaks his piece in a forthright and honest manner.

Trump has made the Media look tremendously naïve and stupid on several occasions, in scenes reminiscent of Lucy Van Pelt promising to hold the football for Charlie Brown to kick, only to pull it away at the last minute leaving a helpless Charlie Brown to wipe out, tumbling head over heels.

The Main Stream Media are no longer in control of the dissemination of the news…and they know it.

Between Trump’s playing them like Charlie Daniels playing a fiddle and average Americans becoming their own reporters through the use of Social Media, “professional journalists” have watched their influence over the daily lives of Americans dwindle and diminish right before their very eyes.

And, quite frankly, they don’t like it one bit.

That is why they continue to try to bring down Trump.

The problem that the hellhounds of the Main Stream Media face is the fact that in order to  have access to President Donald J. Trump and to be able to file news reports covering the actions that he is going to take as President, they are going to have to accurately report what actually happens.

As they continue to learn the hard way, the 45th President of the United States of America will not suffer unsubstantiated slander or the fools who report it, gladly.

President Abraham Lincoln said,

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt. 

Ask Lester Holt.

After CPAC, Trump Plays “Truth or Consequences” With the Main Stream Media

February 25, 2017

trump-at-cpac-2011-by-gage-skidmore

“A few days ago I called the fake news the enemy of the people. And they are.They are the enemy of the people.

Because they have no sources, they just make ’em up when there are none. I saw one story recently where they said, “Nine people have confirmed.” There’re no nine people. I don’t believe there was one or two people. Nine people. And I said, “Give me a break.” Because I know the people, I know who they talk to. There were no nine people. But they say “nine people.” And somebody reads it and they think, “Oh, nine people. They have nine sources.” They make up sources. They’re very dishonest people. In fact, in covering my comments, The dishonest media did not explain that I called the fake news the enemy of the people. The fake news. They dropped off the word “fake.” And all of a sudden the story became the media is the enemy.

They take the word “fake” out. And now I’m saying, “Oh no, this is no good.” But that’s the way they are.

So I’m not against the media, I’m not against the press. I don’t mind bad stories if I deserve them. And I tell ya, I love good stories, but we don’t go… I don’t get too many of them. But I am only against the fake news, media or press. Fake, fake. They have to leave that word. I’m against the people that make up stories and make up sources. They shouldn’t be allowed to use sources unless they use somebody’s name. Let their name be put out there. Let their name be put out.” – President Donald J, Trump, Address to CPAC, 2/24/17

Foxnews.com reports that

President Trump’s war with the press intensified Friday when several journalists perceived as critical of the administration charged they were barred from a press briefing with White House spokesman Sean Spicer and lodged a complaint. 

Those claiming they were barred included The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, CNN and Politico. Fox News, which was not kept from covering the event, nonetheless joined a complaint by the chair of the five-network television pool.

The action, which came after Trump delivered a rousing speech to a friendly crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference, also drew a rebuke from the White House Correspondents’ Association.

“The WHCA board is protesting strongly against how today’s gaggle is being handled by the White House,” Jeff Mason, WHCA president said in a statement. “We encourage the organizations that were allowed in to share the material with others in the press corps who were not.”

The move marked an escalation in the tumultuous relationship between the White House and some members of the media, although the White House denied it went out of its way to bar specific outlets. A spokeswoman said the event was a “pool” event, which by definition is limited.

“We invited the pool so everyone was represented,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said. “We decided to add a couple of additional people beyond the pool. Nothing more than that.”

Friday’s briefing was indeed initially deemed a pool event. A press pool is a 13-member group that includes reporters who represent the five major networks, print organizations and the wire services. The pool’s duty is to attend the event and then distribute the information to other media outlets.

Once the pool was expanded, yet certain media outlets excluded, press representatives argued the effect was the same as a selective ban.

“Nothing like this has ever happened at the White House in our long history of covering multiple administrations of different parties,” Dean Baquet, the Times’ executive editor, said in a statement. “We strongly protest the exclusion of The New York Times and the other news organizations. Free media access to a transparent government is obviously of crucial national interest.”

CNN also weighed in, calling it “an unacceptable development by the Trump White House.”

“Apparently this is how they retaliate when you report facts they don’t like,” the broadcasting organization said in a statement. “We’ll keep reporting regardless.”

The Associated Press chose not to participate in the White House media gaggle.

“The AP believes the public should have as much access to the president as possible,” Lauren Easton, AP’s director of media relations said in a statement.

The news organizations that were allowed to attend included Breitbart News, whose former chief executive, Steve Bannon, is Trump’s chief strategist. Bannon has repeatedly described the press as “the opposition party.”

At the CPAC speech, Trump railed against the media for relying on anonymous sources for stories that cast his month-old administration in a negative light.

He went so far as to say reporters “shouldn’t be allowed to use sources unless they use somebody’s name,” though some of his own administration officials recently held briefings with news media where they insisted no names be used.

Unfortunately, President-elect Trump will never be able to please the Main Stream Media.

Nor should he have to.

The Presidency of the United States of America is the most important leadership position on the Face of God’s Green Earth.

The Main Stream Media knows that.

The problem is, the Main Stream Media, like the rest of their Modern American Liberal Brothers and Sisters, are willing participants in the never-ending National Temper Tantrum being thrown over the election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President by us rubes here in Flyover Country.

In fact, they are so upset that they have abandoned any pretense of subjectivity, publishing stories about Trump and his Administration, that have all of the veracity of a “Batboy” Article published in the Weekly World News, which used to be available at the checkout lane of the grocery store, but has now morphed into a website.

The Main Stream Media not only has lost their meal ticket with the defeat of the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, but they also have to face the reality of being “punked” for at least four years by Donald J. Trump, who has been treating them like a school of Largemouth Bass, baiting the hook with the promise of a big announcement or story, causing them to pack the room wherever Trump is speaking, only to find out that they have been used to gain free publicity for Mr. Trump and whatever cause he is trying to forward that day.

In fact, Trump has made the Media look tremendously naïve and stupid on several occasions, in scenes reminiscent of Lucy Van Pelt promising to hold the football for Charlie Brown to kick, only to pull it away at the last minute leaving a helpless Charlie Brown to wipe out, tumbling head over heels.

The Main Stream Media are no longer in control of the dissemination of the news…and they know it.

Between Trump’s playing them like Charlie Daniels playing a fiddle and average Americans becoming their own reporters through the use of Social Media, “professional journalists” have watched their influence over the daily lives of Americans dwindle and diminish right before their very eyes.

And, quite frankly, they don’t like it one bit.

That is why they continue to try to bring down Trump.

They have been behaving like spoiled little brats who need a timeout.

So, yesterday, the President of the United States of America gave them one.

The Liberal sycophants of the Main Stream Media’s reaction to being left out of yesterday’s press briefing reminded me of a husband, who has been verbally and physically abusive to his wife for years, finally getting thrown out of the house, who can’t figure out, for the life of him, what he did wrong.

So far, the reactions to Trump’s isolation of the Walter Winchell Wannabes by average Americans, appear to be very much on the side of the President.

The general consensus, here in the Heartland, is that, like the abusive spouse whom I mentioned earlier, these Democratic Operatives calling themselves journalists had it coming.

My parents always warned me that there were consequences for telling lies.

Yesterday, the MSM received theirs.

Flynn Resigns Over an Appearance of Impropriety. His Actions Pale in Comparison to What the Obama Administration Got By With.

February 14, 2017

michael-flynn-warns-iran-2017

Be prepared for a torrent of Fake News today.

NBC News reported late last night that

Michael Flynn abruptly resigned as President Donald Trump’s national security adviser Monday night, hours after it was learned that the Justice Department informed the White House that it believed he could be subject to blackmail. Retired Army Gen. Keith Kellogg, a top policy adviser for Trump’s presidential campaign, was appointed acting national security adviser, the White House said in a statement announcing Flynn’s replacement.

Flynn’s status was considered perilous after it was disclosed that he had misled Vice President Mike Pence and other senior officials about his communications with Russia’s ambassador to the United States, a senior U.S. official told NBC News.

The U.S. official confirmed part of a report in The Washington Post, which quoted current and former U.S. officials Monday as saying Sally Yates, then the acting attorney general, delivered the message to White House counsel Donald McGahn.

The Post reported that Yates was privy to FBI monitoring showing that Flynn discussed sanctions on Russia with Ambassador Sergei Kislyak — even though Flynn told administration officials that he hadn’t. Pence repeated the misinformation in national television appearances.

Trump fired Yates as acting attorney general late last month after she directed Justice Department lawyers not to defend his executive order on immigration.

A senior intelligence official confirmed to NBC News last week that Flynn discussed the sanctions, which the Obama administration imposed to punish Russia for its campaign to interfere in the presidential election.Related: Flynn in Hot Seat Over Discussing Sanctions With Russians

The intelligence official said there had been no finding inside the government that Flynn did anything illegal.

But Monday, the only clear thing about Flynn’s status was that it is unclear.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told NBC News on Monday that Flynn still has the full confidence of the president, appearing to signal that Flynn’s job is safe.

But moments later, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said the president was “evaluating the situation” and was talking with Pence about his discussions with Flynn.

Spicer confirmed reports that Flynn had called Pence to apologize.

Trump pointedly declined to answer reporters’ questions about Flynn on Monday afternoon, saying only, “We just put out a statement.”

By contrast, he was effusive in his praise for White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, saying: “Reince is doing a great job. Great. Not a good job. A great job.”

Flynn did the right thing.

Even if he has done nothing wrong, the new Administration cannot afford to give the Democrats, who are still in the midst of a National Temper Tantrum over losing on November 8, 2016, any ammunition, such as the look of impropriety, with which to exaggerate and create more Fake News out of.

It’s funny that the Democrats and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, are so interested in “impropriety in Trump’s Administration, when, for 8 long years, they turned a blind eye to all of the improper shenanigans occurring during the Obama Administration.

For an example of what I am referring to, here is an excerpt from an article I published on June 5, 2015, titled “Obama and Muslim Brotherhood Still “Going Steady””…

The Washington Times reports that

President Obama and his administration continue to support the global Islamist militant group known the Muslim Brotherhood. A White House strategy document regards the group as a moderate alternative to more violent Islamist groups like al Qaeda and the Islamic State.

The policy of backing the Muslim Brotherhood is outlined in a secret directive called Presidential Study Directive-11, or PSD-11. The directive was produced in 2011 and outlines administration support for political reform in the Middle East and North Africa, according to officials familiar with the classified study.

Efforts to force the administration to release the directive or portions of it under the Freedom of Information Act have been unsuccessful.

White House National Security Council spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan declined to comment on PSD-11. “We have nothing for you on this,” she said.

The directive outlines why the administration has chosen the Muslim Brotherhood, which last year was labeled a terrorist organization by the governments of Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates as a key vehicle of U.S. backing for so-called political reform in the Middle East. Saudi Arabia in recent months appears to be moderating its opposition to the Brotherhood in a bid to gain more regional support against pro-Iran rebels in Yemen.

The UAE government also has labeled two U.S. affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Muslim American Society, as terrorist support groups. Both groups denied the UAE claims. Egypt is considering imposing a death sentence on Mohamed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood-backed former president who was ousted in military coup in July 2013.

Critics of the administration’s strategy say the Brotherhood masks its goals and objectives despite advocating an extremist ideology similar to those espoused by al Qaeda and the Islamic State, but with less violence. The group’s motto includes the phrase “jihad is our way.” Jihad means holy war and is the Islamist battle cry.

Counterterrorism analyst Patrick Poole said the Brotherhood in recent weeks has stepped up its use of violent attacks in Egypt.

“The failed Obama Doctrine that so-called ‘moderate Islamists’ were going to usher in a glorious era of peace and democracy in the Middle East was adopted by the administration because that’s what the foreign policy establishment going back to the George W. Bush administration proclaimed as gospel,” Mr. Poole said.

“And now we see as a result Egypt fighting a terror campaign by the ‘moderate’ Muslim Brotherhood; we have a failed state in Libya; and we see NATO ally Turkey turning from secular democracy to religious totalitarianism under Obama’s pal [Turkish President Recep Tayyip] Erdogan.

“This dangerous foreign policy was launched by PSD-11 and the administration’s open embrace of the Muslim Brotherhood, and now we can see its catastrophic effect,” Mr. Poole added.

Frank Gaffney, head of the Center for Security Policy, extensively documented Muslim Brotherhood subversion efforts, both in the United States and abroad.

Mr. Gaffney has said the Muslim Brotherhood is the most dangerous group promoting the totalitarian and Islamist supremacist doctrine of Sharia. Several Muslim Brotherhood supporters have been identified as key advisers to Mr. Obama, according to Mr. Gaffney.

Egyptian press reports after the ouster of Mr. Morsi have revealed extensive cooperation between the CIA and the Muslim Brotherhood during Mr. Morsi’s presidency.

Please allow me to remind you who these guys are…

Founded in 1928 by the Egyptian schoolteacher/activist Hasan al-Banna (a devout admirer of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis), the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) — a Sunni entity — is one of the oldest, largest and most influential Islamist organizations in the world. While Egypt historically has been the center of the Brotherhood’s operations, the group today is active in more than 70 countries (some estimates range as high as 100+). Islam expert Robert Spencer has called MB “the parent organization of Hamas and al Qaeda.” In 2003, Richard Clarke – the chief counterterrorism advisor on the U.S. National Security Council during both the Bill Clinton and George W. Bush administrations – told a Senate committee that Hamas, al Qaeda, and Palestinian Islamic Jihad were all “descendants of the membership and ideology of the Muslim Brothers.”

MB was established in accordance with al-Banna’s proclamation that Islam should be “given hegemony over all matters of life.” Toward that end, the Brotherhood seeks to establish an Islamic caliphate, or kingdom — first spanning all of the present-day Muslim world, and eventually the entire globe. The organization further aspires to dismantle all non-Islamic governments wherever they currently exist, and to make Islamic Law (Shari’a) the sole basis of jurisprudence everywhere on earth. This purpose is encapsulated in the Brotherhood’s militant credo: “God is our objective, the Koran is our Constitution, the Prophet is our leader, struggle [jihad] is our way, and death for the sake of God is the highest of our aspirations.”

Consistent with the foregoing credo, MB since its founding has supported the use of armed struggle, or jihad, against non-Muslim “infidels.” As al-Banna himself wrote: “Jihad is an obligation from Allah on every Muslim and cannot be ignored nor evaded.” Added al-Banna: “It is the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet.”

…Embracing Hasan al-Banna’s belief that Islam is destined to eventually dominate all the world, MB today is global in its reach, wielding influence in almost every country with a Muslim population. Moreover, it maintains political parties in many Middle-Eastern and African countries, including Jordan, Bahrain, Tunisia, Algeria, Jordan, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen, and even Israel. Not only does the Brotherhood exist in Israel proper, but its Palestinian chapter created the terrorist organization Hamas, through which MB has supported terrorism against Israel ever since. Article II of the Hamas charter explicitly identifies Hamas as “one of the wings of Moslem Brotherhood in Palestine.” In January 2006 Hamas defeated the rival Fatah party to win the Palestinian legislative elections, thereby becoming the first branch of MB to control an official government.

Outside of the Middle East, MB exercises a strong influence in Muslim communities throughout Europe. Among the more prominent Brotherhood organizations in the region are: the Forum of European Muslim Youth and Student Organizations, the Muslim Association of Britain, the European Council for Fatwa and Research, the Islamische Gemeinschaft Deutschland (IGD), and the Union des Organisations Islamiques de France (UOIF).

…In early February 2011, Muhammad Ghannem, a leading member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, told the Iranian news network Al-Alam that “the people [of Egypt] should be prepared for war against Israel,” emphasizing that “the Egyptian people are prepared for anything to get rid of this regime.” That objective was entirely consistent with former MB Supreme Guide Muhammad Mahdi Othman Akef’s 2007 assertion that his organization had never recognized Israel and never would: “Our lexicon does not include anything called ‘Israel.’ The [only thing] we acknowledge is the existence of Zionist gangs that have occupied Arab lands and deported the residents. If they want to live among us, it will have to be as [residents of] Palestine.”

And those are the Radical Islamists, the enemies of our country, which President Barack Hussein Obama and his Administration chose to invite to the White House on several occasions during his presidency.

Because of his background, Obama innately trusted Muslims…even radical ones.

And yet, the Main Stream Media ignored the impropriety of sworn enemies of America cozying up to a Sitting President.

They also ignored the fact, as I have documented in other posts, that Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s Personal Aide and BFF, has close relatives in the Muslim Brotherhood.

So, while Michael Flynn did the right thing last night, by filing his resignation, what he did pales in comparison to what the Obama Administration got away with for 8 long, nightmarish years.

So, today, the Liberal Democrat Politicians and “Broadcast Journalists” need to remember the history of the Obama Administration and its many improprieties, before they attempt to pick the bones of the Trump Administration over Flynn’s Resignation.

People in glass houses should not throw stones.

Until He Comes,

On MLK’s Birthday, the MSM Tried to get MLK III to Turn On Trump After a Meeting. “The Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men…”

January 17, 2017

85-2The Main Stream Media attempted to intimidate the wrong American, yesterday.

Newsbusters.org reported that

On Monday afternoon, reporters stationed inside Trump Tower begged Martin Luther King III to attack President-elect Trump over tweets concerning Democratic Congressman John Lewis (Ga.) following a meeting on the day honoring King’s father, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

King began by stating that he and Trump had “a very constructive meeting” with most of the focus on voting rights, but reporters quickly shifted the topic to Lewis. 

ABC correspondent Tom Llamas snuck in the first pathetic question, trying to bait King into blasting Trump: “Mr. King, as you know, Representative Lewis still has the scars from the March on Selma. Were you offended by the President-elect’s tweet that Representative Lewis is all talk and no action?”

King responded by stating Lewis is, like “many others,” a “bridge builder” but added that “in the heat of emotion, a lot of things get said on both sides.”

With the press corps not satisfied, an unidentified male reporter trotted out this second-hand claim by a woman he said he saw last week at Trump Tower:

“Sir, you know many African Americans are very concerned about a Trump presidency. A woman came in here last week and told me he’s going to have black people up against the wall, both literally and figuratively. Did he allay your concerns that he’ll be a president for all people, black and white?”

Once again, King didn’t take the bait as he ruled “certainly he said that, that he is going to represent Americans” and he’ll “continue to evaluate that” throughout Trump’s presidency.

While Lewis has been in the spotlight, CNN’s Jim Acosta has been as well, following his well-publicized tussle with Trump.  Mediaite claimed that Acosta proceeded to “grill” King with this question, but that couldn’t have been further from the truth:

“Sir, but if I may follow up, isn’t there something that cuts to your core when you hear the President-elect refer to John Lewis as all talk and no action? I mean, nothing could be further from the truth, isn’t that right? John Lewis is not all talk and no action.”

“No, absolutely. I would say John Lewis has demonstrated that he’s action. As I said, things get said on both sides in the heat of emotion and at some point, this nation, we’ve got to move forward,” answered King.

Here’s the relevant portion of the transcript from Martin Luther King III’s January 16 press conference at Trump Tower:

MARTIN LUTHER KING III: Let me briefly not just reiterate but state that we did have a very constructive meeting. The seminal right of the modern civil rights movement was the right to vote. My father fought so diligently for it, certainly Congressman John Lewis and many others, Hosea Williams fought for as well. It is very clear that the system is not working at its maximum, and through an op-ed that you may have seen, we provided at least a solution to begin to address a broken voting system. That was the dialogue, most of the dialogue that we talked about constructively. We believe we provided a solution that at least will give everyone an I.D. 

TOM LLAMAS: Mr. King, as you know, Representative Lewis still has the scars from the March on Selma. Were you offended by the President-elect’s tweet that Representative Lewis is all talk and no action? 

KING: First of all I think that in the heat of emotion, a lot of things get said on both sides and I think that at some point, and I am, as John Lewis and many others are, a bridge builder. The goal is to bring America together and Americans. We are a great nation, but we must become a greater nation, and what my father represented — my mother represented through her life, what I hope that I’m trying to do is always bring people together. 

UNIDENTIFIED MALE REPORTER: Sir, you know many African Americans are very concerned about a Trump presidency. A woman came in here last week and told me he’s going to have black people up against the wall, both literally and figuratively. Did he allay your concerns that he’ll be a president for all people, black and white? 

KING: Well certainly he said that, that he is going to represent Americans. He said that over and over again, and I think that we will continue to evaluate that. I think that the nation supports — I believe that’s his intent, but I think also we have to consistently engage with pressure, public pressure. It doesn’t happen automatically. My father and his team understood that, did that, and I think that Americans are prepared to do that. 

JIM ACOSTA: Sir, but if I may follow up, isn’t there something that cuts to your core when you hear the President-elect refer to John Lewis as all talk and no action? I mean, nothing could be further from the truth, isn’t that right? John Lewis is not all talk and no action. 

KING: No, absolutely. I would say John Lewis has demonstrated that he’s action. As I said, things get said on both sides in the heat of emotion and at some point, this nation, we’ve got to move forward. We can’t stay on — I mean, people are literally probably dying. We need to be talking about how do we feed people, how do we clothe people, how do we create the best education system. That’s what we need to be focused on. 

LLAMAS: On this day, what would your father’s message would be to President-elect Trump? What do you think your father’s message would be to President-elect Trump? 

KING: This is the final answer I’m going to have because I’m going to reiterate what I just said. I think my father would be concerned about the fact that there are 50 million fact there are 50 or 60 million people living in poverty and somehow, we’ve got to create the climate for all boats to be lifted. In America, with a multi-trillion dollar economy — $20 trillion economy almost, it’s insanity we have poor people in this nation. That’s unacceptable and when we work together, we know we can roll up our sleeves. There’s nothing we as Americans can’t do. Thank you very much. 

As I have written in previous posts, America’s Main Stream Media abandoned their role as objective observers and reporters of the news a long time ago.

With the overwhelming majority of those in the MSM being Liberals, they no longer view their role in American Society as being simply news reporters. They view themselves as being advocates…Liberal activists with a camera and a microphone, whose job is to stir up trouble for those who do not follow in lockstep behind the Democratic Elite.

As shown in the above article, they are not above continuing and exacerbating the racial division which America has experienced during the presidency of Barack Hussein Obama.

Just like the out-of-touch Hollywood Celebrities, the infantile cry baby wannabe anarchists of #DisruptJ20, and the anti-Constitution Democratic Congressmen like John Lewis, America’s Main Stream Media are in the middle of an epic meltdown triggered by the legal election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America.

As has been affirmed to me time and time again during my surfing of the web, including Facebook Political Pages and websites, Modern American Liberals, including those in the Main Stream Media, are living in a state of denial.

They respond as if you have told them that you shot Ol’ Yeller, when you inform them that Liberalism is still the minority political belief in America, even (and especially) after the 8-year reign of their fallen messiah, King Barack The First and the defeat of their political party’s hand-picked successor, the Queen of Mean, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

This salient fact explains why CNN and MSNBC constantly trail Fox News in the television ratings polls.

Well, that plus the fact, as President-elect Trump has so eloquently put it time and again, THEY ARE A BUNCH OF LIARS.

Americans are now living in a  time when the Main Stream Media’s blatant propaganda is no longer believed at face value, as the evidence which refutes it is appearing in the live videos and photographs being shared on Facebook and other Social Media.

And, in response to the fact that average Americans do not believe a thing that they report, the MSM has decided that their role is to move from being objective reporters to being the unashamed Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party, pushing its progressive and disruptive agenda forward BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.

Hence, the attempted intimidation of Martin Luther King III yesterday, in a desperate attempt to produce the results that those “journalists” wanted.

King III refused to be intimidated, just as President-elect Trump has refused to allow them to report lies about him.

So, with average Americas receiving our news from alternate sources and a man being inaugurated as President of the United States in 3 days who refuses to play their games, that leaves the Democratic Sycophants of the Main Stream Media S.O.L.

…And, you know what than means.

The Liberals’ National Temper Tantrum will not end any time soon.

Pass the popcorn.

Hillary Calls for Congressional Action Against “Fake News”…i.e., “If It Wasn’t For Those Meddling Kids and That Stupid Dog, I Would Have Gotten Away With It.”

December 9, 2016

hillary-is-a-scooby-doo-villain

Filed under the category of “The Best Laid Plans”…

TheHill.com reports that

Hillary Clinton on Thursday decried the spread of fake news online, calling it an “epidemic” that Congress should take action against.

“The epidemic of malicious fake news and false propaganda that flooded social media over the past year — it’s now clear the so-called fake news can have real-world consequences,” Clinton said during a speech on Capitol Hill.

Some Democrats have argued the spread of anti-Clinton fake news online contributed to her electoral loss to Donald Trump Donald TrumpTrump showcases Cabinet picks on ‘thank you tour’Trump: Time changed award to ‘Person of the Year’ to be ‘politically correct’ Feinstein after dinner with Clinton: She has ‘accepted’ her lossMORE.

The issue has received renewed attention this week after a gunman entered a pizzeria in Washington that was at the center of a false viral conspiracy theory that alleged it was home to a pedophilia ring operated by Clinton and her inner circle.

“This isn’t about politics or partisanship,” Clinton continued during her speech Thursday at a ceremony honoring retiring Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid Harry ReidFeinstein after dinner with Clinton: She has ‘accepted’ her lossClintons remember John Glenn as a ‘uniquely American hero’Clinton reappears on Capitol Hill for Reid send-offMORE (D-Nev.).

“Lives are at risk — lives of ordinary people just trying to go about their days, to do their jobs, contribute to their communities.”

“It’s a danger that must be addressed and addressed quickly,” she said.

By “Fake News”, Mrs. Clinton means that her failed Presidential Campaign was sunk by the documentation and dissemination of frail health and other “challenges” through the use of Social Media by “Citizen Reporters”.

Americans, like President-elect Trump himself, have found a way to get around the minions of the Democratic Party, who used to be known as The Fourth Estate…and as professionals journalists.

For years, the Main Stream Media has been in bed with corrupt politicians and those who walk roam the Halls of Power with impunity (Mr. Soros to the Courtesy Desk, please.)

While touting objectivity, they have often fallen way short of that goal.

The Media really came into its own during the 80’s, with the advent of Cable Television, the Iranian Hostage Crisis, and the ascension and election of President Ronald Wilson Reagan. Their advocacy of all things Liberal became very apparent, as they attacked the greatest president of this generation, mercilessly, giving no quarter.

I believe that Reagan’s election was a wake up call to the MSM. They realized that, if left to their own devices, the American Public would elect a Conservative as President, every time. And, they just couldn’t have that. They were already in too deep to their Democratic, Progressive Masters.

So, America’s Media forsook their objectivity, choosing to help to shape current events, instead of just reporting on them, in an effort to produce outcomes which would be most beneficial to the Progressive Cause.

After propping up Barack Hussein Obama and getting him re-elected, their own hubris gave them an exaggerated sense of self-importance, as to their role in our society.

Their Achilles’ Heel , the before-mentioned hubris, blinded them to the potential of the New Media…and, that has been their undoing.

As has been affirmed to me since before the election of Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm), during my surfing of the web, including Facebook Political Pages and websites, Modern American Liberals, including those in the Main Stream Media, constantly live in a state of denial.

They respond as if you have told them that you shot Ol’ Yeller, when you inform them that Liberalism is still the minority political belief in America, even (and especially) after the 7 1/2 year reign of King Barack The First.

This salient fact explains why CNN and MSNBC constantly trail Fox News in the television ratings polls.

It also explains their  massive propping up through the use of blatant propaganda of the failed Presidential Campaign of Hillary Clinton and now, her and Obama’s cries and lamentations over the “scourge” of “Fake News”.

Americans are now living in a  time when the Main Stream Media’s blatant propaganda is no longer believed at face value, as the evidence which refutes it is appearing in the live videos and photographs being shared on Facebook and other Social Media.And, like the little Dutch Boy, the Democratic Leadership, including Obama and Hillary, do not know which hole to plug, in the leaking dam, first.

In their frenzied desperate attempt to stop this flood of information from reaching average Americans, they have decided to try to discredit the believability of any news coverage that has not been sanctioned by the Democratic Party and as reported by their minions in the MSM.

Just like the Internet Trolls, who invade Facebook Political Pages and Political Websites, in order to disrupt conversation and call attention to themselves, the MSM, while covering the 2016 Presidential Campaign and under orders from the Democratic Party, created their own facts, permanently damaging their own credibility, quite probably beyond all repair.

So now, Obama and Hillary are trying to put the genie back in the bottle by creating the fake scourge of “Fake News”.

Because…who are you going to believe…your own lying eyes or a pair of damaged Professional Politicians?
