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.

Until He Comes,
