How Legitimate is the Nobel Peace Prize Nomination for President Trump?

Here’s another certainty: regarding President Trump’s nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize, Americans are all 100% positive that he should win or 100% positive he is NOT worthy of the award. I think it’s safe to say that there is nothing in the United States today more polarizing than Donald Trump!

Trump supporters have as justification for such a reward the fantastic accomplishments on the part of the President despite the nonstop onslaught by Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Adam Schiff, and, don’t forget, the Democrat Party messaging arm, the “Lamestream Media.” Just imagine if he had even modest support and even a tidbit of recognition for his accomplishments. I cannot find any comparison regarding specific, verifiable, and positive results in four years by any of his predecessors. Yet, none of those above have given Trump credit for even one of the hundreds of positives for Americans on his watch!

Trump detractors are quick to say, “It’s a prize for accomplishments in World peace. Donald Trump is destroying the opinion of the United States among citizens from every other country on Earth!” Nay: that’s where their allegations lose all semblance of credibility. Donald Trump has diligently and effectively set much of the chaos on Earth from the last decade on its ear. In fact, despite the turmoil on U.S. streets, many foreign leaders look jealously at Trump’s accomplishments, especially BECAUSE of the tortuous non-stop flood of untruthful news and almost daily allegations of “new” wrongdoing by this President uncovered by those bastions of honesty and integrity: the American Media.

So far, the President has notched up two nominations. How can that even be possible? Americans heard NOTHING about each other than a CNN-MSNBC-ABC-CBS-NBC news anchor snicker or two. Yet, the Middle East is seeing a quiet but sure calming of the constant war of words leveled at the nation of Israel. How is it even possible that any U.S. president — especially Donald Trump — could broker not one but two peace deals between Muslim countries and Netanyahu’s dominion? We appear to be witnessing a memorable moment in the Middle East, a region that has left successive U.S. presidents battered, bruised, and bitter. Now, in the space of two months, Trump has secured agreements from the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain to normalize relations with Israel, with more Arab and Muslim states expected to follow.

It is fair for Trump’s detractors to point out these alliances have developed over time and are, in part, driven by the common threat of a nuclear Iran. But if we recognize that Trump disregarded decades of bipartisan “wisdom” about the Middle East, is that not THE reason we are seeing the most positive outcomes in the Middle East for decades? The dreaded question, then, is: what if, somehow, Trump was right? Come on, Man! Trump is the guy who has laughed nonstop in the face of conventionalism in pretty every historical “wisdom” not just about the Middle East, but with countries from every section on the globe. And, in many cases, it has worked.

Of course, Trump can’t be right because the “smart people’ — the foreign policy establishment, the academics, the political hacks, the globalists “we know everything” crowd — said at every juncture that his foreign policy would lead to catastrophe. When Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Iran deal, the smart people called it an act of betrayal on a global scale and said: “Few recent presidential decisions have been proved to be so spectacularly wrong in such a short period of time.” When he took out Iranian terror chief Qasem Soleimani, the smart people called it “extreme” and part of “an increasingly dangerous game of chicken.” When he recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and moved the U.S. embassy there, the smart people called it “an act of diplomatic vandalism.” They said the President had “lit the fuse” on “a ticking time bomb” and predicted that “no one will benefit from it, or at least no one interested in peace.”

When he recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, the smart people said: “This is utterly irresponsible, and risks stoking more extremism and instability in the region.” When his administration recognized Israeli settlements as “not inconsistent with international law,” the smart people called it an “indefensible decision” which had “recklessly sacrificed, at least as long as Trump remains president, the last shreds of the U.S.’s claim to be a broker of peace.” When he brought forward his peace plan, the smart people termed it “a framework that may well have hung a closed-for-the-season sign both on a viable peace process and America’s credibility as a fair and effective broker.”

Why are we still listening to all these responsive tidbits of wisdom from the smart people? Trump broke with their consensus, even though in an erratic and conflicting “Trumpian” way, and now the AK-47’s are leaning against the wall in the closet. Kosovo and Serbia are normalizing economic relations, the Kosovo is recognizing Israel, Serbia is designating Hezbollah a terrorist group; Malawi is opening a diplomatic mission in Jerusalem and Chad is reportedly planning on doing the same. Iran, which Barack Obama sought to appease with the failed JCPOA, looks increasingly isolated. Don’t even think about $150 billion dollars, the last of which Obama loaded on a plane in cash and slipped it to Iran during the night.

Not bad for a reality TV star.

Even if these achievements hold up, Trump will likely fall victim to the foreign policy termed a “Reaganism.” When Ronald Reagan spoke of defeating the “Evil Empire,” the smart people said it was impossible; when the Evil Empire fell within a decade, they said it was inevitable and Reagan had nothing to do with it. Trump is not Reagan. Trump does not exist in the same universe as Reagan. Trumpism lacks the moral foundation and intellectual understanding of Reaganism. It took a drastic worldview to guide the 40th president. For Reagan, American greatness was fateful and optimistic; for Trump, it is backward-looking and resentful.

This enrages the American Left: a Queens builder and developer with no formal political training, has stumbled upon answers to questions that have stumped the smart people for years. The Council on Foreign Relations, American international political experts, even the previous Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama all got it wrong while a vulgar nationalist got it right. A Nobel Peace Prize might seem not only in order but positively poetic.

The Nobel Committee has a history of passing out the prize as a political downpayment, expecting some quid pro quo will keep the recipient in line with the Committee’s policy preferences. This doesn’t always work out. Eight months into his presidency, the Committee awarded Obama the Nobel for his “vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons.” How’d that work out for those Nobel folks? Five years later, Obama cut the non-proliferation budget by 20 percent and increased spending on nukes by 6 percent. Trump seems even less likely to be influenced once the initial bragging rights wear off. Besides, the Nobel Peace Prize lost its luster when they gave one to the terrorist Yasser Arafat.

Whether Trump gets the prize matters less than whether the smart people can bring themselves to learn the lessons of his presidency: that the United States can be a steady, constant, and unswerving friend of Israel and an honest broker for peace in the Middle East. Sometimes the running-charge of a Donald Trump gets better results than a dozen peace meetings with a dozen foreign leaders at Camp David. Now it seems that a foreign policy elite committed to doing NOTHING, unwilling to relent on any foreign policy failure, and are consistently reluctant to make any “new” foreign suggestions fail in the shadows of a Queens Television Cowboy. Smart people are essential to foreign policy-making but they need leadership, decisiveness, and, every now and then, a spot of dangerous non-conventionalism.

Who knows what will be the longer-term consequences of a reorienting Middle East. The United States under this President’s foreign policy might be earning itself more and better allies, or it could be making itself less relevant to a new diplomatic bloc. But regarding peace in the World TODAY, cooperation, and strengthening the anti-Iran forces, this president has achieved what the previous one could not and perhaps did not really want to. It sticks in the craw to admit it, but Trump outsmarted the smart people.

How’s that making those Foreign Policy elites feel?

What If Donald Trump was Not Running for Re-Election Today but Barack Obama Was?

I am probably opening Pandora’s box with this story today! There are probably several thousand more will read this story than would have without that headline. That’s O.K. When you finish reading this, you’ll understand my reason for writing this: to make every reader and listener rethink their plan for choosing for whom to vote in November.

The thought that resulted in the title was “what if Obama was today running for re-election AND faced the same circumstances as does Donald Trump? Let’s look at those 2012 Obama re-election considerations as compared to today’s Trump’s challenges AND look at Obama’s 2012 considerations but with Trump running against Romney and not Obama:

  • Imagine that Russia had annexed Crimea during the Trump years rather than while Obama was president. MSNBC and other left-wing media would have incessantly drummed claims that Trump conspired with Putin to let the Russian president smother Ukraine. Other news outlets would have probably chalked up the loss of Crimea to President Trump’s incompetence and his defiance of the foreign-policy establishment.
  • What about Otto Warmbier: remember him? Otto was thrown in the slammer by Kim Jong Un in 2012. But what if that happened THIS year? The story would have been all about Trump being a foreign policy neophyte with no ability to negotiate with totalitarian regimes. But we know from the way it REALLY happened the fault was Obama’s foreign policy mistakes — you know, that foreign policy establishment that today’s media continually maintain dwarfed that of Donald Trump today.

Let’s try an “Opposite:”

  • What if COVID-19 showed up in 2012? The media would have fawned over how calm, resolute, and prepared was Obama in handling such a monumental task so adeptly. The death toll wouldn’t have mattered to the media then. Remember: the COVID-19 pandemic would have occurred in his re-election year, and he had some sketchy history in handling a bad virus. In 2009, H1N1 showed up early in his first year as president. Sixty million Americans were infected by the virus, and Obama’s handling it was not stellar.
  • Democrats and NeverTrump Republicans might deny this and demand that Obama’s response to COVID-19 could have made him more popular. After all, it would have allowed him to show his prowess in handling a healthcare disaster. With COVID-12 (as it would have been), it’s more likely it would have damaged Obama’s popularity and attacked his margin of victory over Mitt Romney. It might have even cost him a second term as president.

Remember this: one of the wildest realities of Trump’s first four years is how the demented American media, in their coverage of Donald Trump, made everything about HIM and not the events that happened on his watch: good and bad. They treated him like he really was a dictator-wannabe or a king instead of an elected president. Their end-goal was to re-establish “the way it used to be” — the establishment back in charge with the old “normal” political processes.

But they want us to all forget their record. They have one that was established not just under Obama but also under “Good Old George” W. Bush. Think back and compare how they treated George W. Bush in his eight years and compare that to how they have treated President Trump. In many ways, they are very similar: with total disdain. And the sandwich-filling eight years under Obama saw the media perpetually either fawning over Barack and Michelle for every imaginable non-event without ever saying one negative word or attacking anyone or any group that disagreed with anything from the Anointed One.

How did the media treat Trump overall in the past four years? (No need to comment) Contrast their treatment of Trump in light of his significant and sometimes glorious accomplishments until COVID-19. Neither Bush 43 NOR Obama had 3.5 years nearly as successful on so many fronts as has Trump.

Wait: Trump did NOTHING for the United States! Trump destroyed the amazing foreign policy reputation that Obama had miraculously plucked from the foreign policy garbage heap on which W. had thrown it.

What about Obama’s targeted sanctions on Russia? Those not only failed to get Putin out of Crimea but also failed to stop the Russian meddling in the 2016 election that we have heard about ever since. What about Erdogan’s consolidation of power in Turkey and China’s turn to a massive increase of power beyond (and within) its borders that also took place under Obama?

Obama was the oracle who came to usher the United States into a “new” world — a “new” and better position in leadership among all countries on Earth. Obama cleared the air with every country with which past U.S. presidents disagreed: every one of them! (It was called his “Apology Tour”) His shovel-ready jobs never materialized, and his billions in handouts to his green energy cronies disappeared. He made all that right, though. Remember: he giggled with some of his White House staff on camera, saying, “I guess all those shovel-ready jobs weren’t so shovel-ready after all.”

One question for all of you: If all the things Obama did in his eight years were so glorious, so successful, so great for America and the American people; if his policies ushered in this astounding transformation from a tired worn out country that was far behind the rest of the world; if he was the beginning of a new world, why did Trump win the 2016 election? Hillary was to be the successor to Obama to carry on with his grandiose changes.

Trump won because the American people held the elites in both parties responsible for horrible conditions at home and abroad. “Make America Great Again” won the election because Americans not only believed Trump could do it — they thought he WOULD do it. And Americans had swallowed all of the Obama pipe dreams for a “better America” that proved to be nothing more than dreams.

“Trump World”

The mainstream media’s coverage of the Trump administration has been an exercise in self-deception of the press themselves. “Trump World” has not been about Donald Trump, other than he made explicit what the elites have long disguised: that the American government (as comprised by those elites within it) that guided our country since the end of the Cold War has broken down and that the establishment leaders who wish to return us to “the way it was” lack legitimacy with the public. The public knows that change of some kind is needed, and it attempted to bring about change by electing Barack Obama and then Donald Trump.

The coronavirus and its consequences just might be enough to defeat President Trump in November. But the election of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will not solve any of the problems that led to Trump’s election in the first place. Quite the contrary: the ruling class will be more alienated than ever, self-assured that the dismissal by voters of Trump is the same as the affirmation of elite rule as it existed before Trump. Under Biden and Harris, post-Trump America will be a country ready for another Trump — or someone even more terrifying to the elite.

That might be true even if Trump is reelected. A second-term president often focuses on foreign policy, with Congress half or entirely run by the opposition party. Trump has been making better, more “Trumpian” and more competent personnel appointments in recent months, so a coherent change in governing strategy may be possible in a second Trump term. He has also been willing to use executive power to reshape trade and immigration to the extent that his powers allow. But the changes the federal government needs to make to serve the country as a whole must be made by the legislature as well. Without these reforms and a concentration by ALL in government on the well-being of Main Street over Wall Street, the stagnation will continue.

The media, the Education system, and corporate America must also get serious about their failures. But four more years of “Trump World” may mean four more years of elitists screaming about the President’s sole responsibility for everything that goes wrong. The hope is that the shock of Trump’s reelection would be a slap-in-the-faces of those on the Left that consider themselves some sort of “ruling class” sufficient for them to face the realities of the new world in which we find ourselves. That is no safe bet, but it’s the only chance for real and longlasting change available.

After Trump, next year, or in five years, there will be a reckoning. And if the failed elites who made Trump necessary in the first place have not changed their ways, they will find themselves lost at sea by whoever wins control of the government in five years. And whoever that is will purposely put them on that boat, shove them away from a dock somewhere. They’ll probably have put a small hole in the bottom of the boat, too!

The Trump-DOJ Hammer is Pounding

In recent years, have you felt like members of Congress, along with other members of our government, seems not to get much done? Does it feel to you that there’s something happening at the top of our government that keeps things from being accomplished for the good of Americans, no matter their party affiliation?

If you feel that way, it seems to be justified. Many feel that the powerful members of our government have been purposely holding-back on giving to Americans all the things we need. And when they successfully pass legislation, it only passes when members of the “other side” get something significant in return for their votes. What could be the cause of all this? The answer to that question comes to you in our Summary at the end of this news report. This story was published a couple of months after the inauguration of Donald Trump:

The mainstream media (MSM) has kept silent as President Donald Trump in his first two months of office has overseen the arrests of more than 1,500 pedophiles, almost four times more than the 400 pedophiles arrested under President Obama in all of 2014. Recent arrest reports show that more than 1,500 sexual predators were busted for their involvement in child sex-trafficking rings in the United States since January 20, the day Donald Trump was inaugurated. A joint report by the Department of Justice and FBI reveals that for the entire year 2014, President Obama oversaw only 400 similar arrests. Many people are taking note of these facts and asking why a so-called “objective” MSM is so selective in its reporting policies.

It’s no coincidence that child sex-trafficking rings are under such an attack by the Trump administration. On October 8, 2012, Trump tweeted, “Got to do something about these missing children grabbed by the perverts. Too many incidents — fast trial, the death penalty.”

At a press conference on human trafficking in the White House on February 23, 2017, Trump laid down the law: “I want to make it clear today that my administration will focus on ending the absolutely horrific practice of human trafficking. … A lot of you have been dealing with the federal government and it’s been much more focused over the last four weeks — I can tell you that.”

“It’s not talked about enough,” he continued. “And we’re going to talk about it, and we’re going to bring it out into the open and hopefully we’re going to do a great deal to help prevent some of the horrific — really horrific — crimes that are taking place.”

The MSM refuses to report on President Trump’s war on pedophiles and on child sex-trafficking rings in spite of the recent avalanche of arrests which include the following:

  • Jan. 27: 42 arrested in a human trafficking operation in Tennessee
  • Jan. 29: 474 arrested in California (28 sexually-exploited children were rescued)
  • Jan. 18 to Feb 5: 108 arrested in Illinois sex-trafficking sting
  • Jan. up until Super Bowl Sunday: 178 arrested in Texas sex-trafficking sting
  • Jan: 16 arrested in Michigan for sex trafficking during the Detroit Auto Show
  • Feb: 11 arrested in Virginia child-sex sting
  • Feb. 14: 42 arrested in Florida child pornography-related cases

The supposedly “unbiased” MSM has no qualms about quickly reporting on every sex abuse scandal involving the Catholic Church. The liberal media’s ever-changing morality towards the grave evils of pederasty and pedophilia, however, has caused some journalists to question whether their tears are real or fake.

Summary

There has been scant media coverage of arrests and subsequent convictions of those who were caught up in child pornography, child sex trafficking, or pedophilia illegalities. But one thing is certain: under this President, there have been massive numbers caught and punished.

As you see above, not all are in politics — there are many in the entertainment and the media world. Sexual perversion has no favorites: it will be part of any person’s life who so chooses.

We at TruthNewsNetwork reported several years ago about our continual monitoring of a huge number of sealed federal indictments that have, for the last four years, been issued (and sealed) in every federal district court in the nation. It’s been a massive number that has never before been seen in American history.

What does a “sealed indictment” mean? It is an indictment that, when un-sealed, will be used by federal authorities to arrest and charge people for wrongdoings of numerous kinds. Those alleged offenders are arrested and charged and then appear to defend themselves. The details of those included in those sealed indictments and their offenses are unknown until after their unsealing and their processing.

The maximum number of sealed indictments being issues by the combined federal courts across the nation has been approximately 3000 in one calendar year. Since the beginning of the Trump Administration, the unsealing process of 182,771 sealed indictments being “Unsealed” has begun. Those listed above are part of the revealing and processing of those guilty of criminal acts against American children.

Yes, this is a long story. But it will be much longer when completed: if it ever is.

Many have and will continue to blame President Trump for numerous ills in our cities, states, and our nation. But one thing that none can truthfully and honestly blame him for is overlooking the welfare of American children — especially those who innocently find themselves involved in horrible events forced on them by some of the sickest humans on Earth.

We’ll continue to watch as those other thousands of sealed indictments are unsealed and processed. I wonder who numbers above those who are now beginning to live the promise in that Scripture: “Be sure your sins will find you out?”

The Real Reason They Hate Donald Trump

Make no mistake: “They” hate Donald Trump.

Sure, they disliked him during the 2016 campaign for president. But when he beat the “Anointed One,” their dislike turned quickly to “disdain,” disdain became “scorn,” then scorn morphed into plain old hatred. And it certainly has stuck.

One would think a presidential candidate who when sworn into office began to systematically create exactly all the things he promised to voters he would do if elected, their hatred would have dropped a notch or two in intensity. But the opposite is true: the more accomplishments he made, the more intense became their hatred.

It helped their cause — whatever that could be — that the Media Lapdogs (the Mainstream Media) of the Democrats played right into the narrative of just how horrid, unqualified, undignified, and inept this President was. They joined right in with their laughter, derision, disbelief of and hatred for Donald Trump.

But its intensity has boiled over. And as more hatred leaks from the witch’s cauldron the angrier Democrats become. Even his real accomplishments for Americans seems to tick their hatred higher!

Democrats didn’t much care for presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, or George W. Bush — mainly because they were Republican presidents. But it is no secret that Democrats, whether they call themselves liberals, leftists, progressives, Democratic socialists, or just plain socialists, hate Donald Trump. They focus on every single thing he says or does in a way that they never did with previous Republican presidents. “Hate” is a very strong word. But I really don’t know how else to describe how many Democrats feel about Trump. They loathe him. They despise him. They detest him. They abhor him. They have contempt and enmity for him. And now that Trump is running for reelection, hatred of the president has reached a whole new level of intensity.

Trump has been hated from the very beginning. About seventy House Democrats boycotted his inauguration and even before he was inaugurated, some House Democrats declared Trump to be an “illegitimate president.” Democratic hatred for Trump goes back even to when he was still just the Republican nominee for president. Since that time, Democrats have referred to the president as “pond scum,” a “human turd,” “toxic sludge,” a “sebaceous cyst,” an “infectious microbe,” a “bursting landfill of municipal solid waste,” a “mountain of rotting whale blubber,” a “walking staph infection,” a “decomposing jack-o-lantern,” a “fascist carnival barker,” and a “snake-oil salesman.” And those are just the epithets that can be listed at TruthNewsNetwork.

In his impeachment trial in the House, the hatred that Democrats have for the president was pointed out by some Republicans before the vote was taken on the articles of impeachment:

  • This vote, this day is about one thing and one thing only. They hate this president (Chris Stewart, Utah).
  • This is a tragic day in our nation’s history. We have individuals that hate this president more than they love this country (Greg Murphy, N.C.).
  • It’s obvious today that there’s an intense hatred from the Democrats of President Donald Trump. Why do they hate the man so much (Paul Gosar, Ariz.)?

Why indeed?

President Trump is viewed by Democrats as rude, combative, arrogant, offensive, crass, crude, and politically incorrect. Many Democrats consider him to be a megalomaniac, a xenophobe, a homophobe, an Islamophobe, a racist, and a misogynist. But what is so interesting and intriguing about Democratic hatred for Donald Trump is that there is really no ideological basis for it.

Of course, his legislative achievements that came in the form of the 2017 Tax Cuts and the unexpected new Crime Bill are just a couple of historical legislative accomplishments that one would think every member of Congress would applaud for their successes. But not so this Democrat Party. And even a clump of Republicans outwardly and very publicly joined in a massive effort to raise close to $20 million in campaign funds to lobby for his ouster in exchange for Joe Biden.

Could there be something else? Certainly, there is:

Maybe it’s because of their discovery that newly inaugurated President Trump was committed to the success of more than what most recent presidents had accomplished for the American people. It quickly became clear that his plan was to accomplish each and every promise he made during his campaign to the American people. He not only started the process, but he also began to successfully fulfill each promise, one by one.

You just saw and heard from a crowd of Washington elites known for decades that each was a great leader with only the good of the American people at heart. But each (according to their OWN words you heard for yourself) were committed not principally to this country, but to an organization that was to, when crafted and empowered, hold authority over all nations and all people on Earth.

As Americans, we had heard these leaders in speeches utter those words “New World Order” and “Global Government.” But we must have each simply dismissed any universal significance it is now certain those words held. You just heard from American and world leaders who opined about the exact same thing!

  • Bill Clinton
  • Vice President Al Gore
  • President George H.W. Bush
  • Secretary of State Henry Kissinger
  • Senator and Secretary of State John Kerry
  • Billionaire Anarchist George Soros
  • Herman Van Rompuy: former European Union President
  • Vice President Dan Quayle
  • Billionaire Media Magnate Ted Turner
  • House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
  • Democrat Party Presidential Candidate Joe Biden

Every one of those listed above in the media segment you just witnessed endorsed an ages-old political utopia of a World governed by one central entity.

But that’s not what Americans want for our country!

What Do Americans Want?

We know there are problems in our nation. It is impossible for there to be a country that holds 330 million citizens to NOT have problems of some kind! But we have a 260-year history of addressing and resolving our problems. No, we’ve never been problem-free. But our forefathers left a roadmap for us to use to ferret out our problems and implement fixes with guidelines in our own “How-to” manual: The United States Constitution.

Were you shocked to see and hear some of those who made those “world order” statements? I was. But the fact there are so many who have such diverse backgrounds and political leanings shocked me more than that there were political leaders who feel that way. They each made clear in their speeches how they feel and what they want. I wonder why none ever bothered to take a microphone and detail to the American people exactly what that “New World Order” would be and how structured?

Maybe they thought we were not ready.

Summary

What happened to their grandiose plan? Obviously, from Bush 41, to Bill Clinton, Bush 43, and Obama, their transition from our Representative Republic we can now see was eroded by top-down government structural changes to transition to this new form of global government. Hillary Clinton looked to be the firebrand to ignite the fires to complete this transition.

Then came Donald Trump. And he’s anything but a globalist!

Americans had been lulled to sleep by the “same old, same old” leadership in Washington. It mattered not what political party banner flew over the White House or the Capitol: the transition was in! Trump brought his monkey-wrench with him and started banging on the Swamp creatures even before his inauguration.

Their plans were torched!

Donald Trump re-ignited the fires of liberty across our nation. Americans began to believe in our leaders, expect results for our investments in government, commitment to the Rule of Law and Equal Justice Under the Law for everyone. Our confiscatory tax policies were reverted bring more dollars to families, millions of new jobs, and billions in new revenue to our government. People became proud once again to be Americans.

And the Left hated Donald Trump for that and for destroying their centralized government utopia.

Why is the hatred level cycling up in intensity daily? Why are major cities in our nation literally burning? Why is there such violence, rioting, looting, violence, and now anarchy to go along with all the other?

This election our very own globalist see as their last chance to remove the blight that had the audacity to accept the requests of 63 million voters to lead this country away from its globalist spiral toward total devastation.

They will do anything they find necessary to remove Donald Trump from office. And don’t think they are through trying.

Yesterday, Hillary Clinton barked an order publicly to Joe Biden: “Don’t under any circumstances concede the election to Donald Trump on election night!” What was that about? It was about mustering all the forces they can to scour the countryside to find votes doing anything necessary to get those votes counted in sufficient number to restart their train headed for Utopia they call a Brand New World.

That’s why they hate Donald Trump.

A Writer from The ATLANTIC Claims Christians Feel President Trump Has Failed Them

An editorial published last week in The Atlantic began with this:

“White, conservative Christians who set aside the tenets of their faith to support Donald Trump are now left with little to show for it. The closest thing social conservatives and evangelical supporters of President Donald Trump had to be a conversation stopper, when pressed about their support for a president who is so manifestly corrupt, cruel, mendacious, and psychologically unwell, was a simple phrase: “But Gorsuch.”

The editorial struck me as odd, especially when it began with these assumptions and insults. It’s as if the writer has a perch in the Heavens that provides him a clear vision of everything Donald Trump thinks, feels, says, and pierces the reality of his mental status. I’m certain God could do that. I doubt a “contributor” named Peter Wehner at The Atlantic can.

This thought also struck me: “Who is this writer? How can the assumption of the thoughts of every social conservative be known to this editorialist? Did God author Wehner’s column? I seriously doubt so.

But what I know for certain is that true Christians — you know, those that pray daily, believe God’s Word is infallible, Jesus is the Son of God, He died for our sins, rose from death, and points His followers to make right decisions on everything in their lives — are NOT single-issue voters. And to insinuate so reveals far more about the columnist than of the targets of his story.

I proudly number among that last category. Even with the political things in D.C. that don’t exactly fit my picture of political perfection, I don’t park my brain and its biological discernment ability on the church pew when I leave the service. It goes everywhere with me. I assume (and am certain) the same is true of other Christians.

Wehner certainly didn’t speak to very many of the 60+ million Trump voters before penning this missive. If he had, he would have heard a vastly different synopsis of Donald Trump’s considerable accomplishments for not just Christians, but for ALL Americans. That list is far too long to include here. But you certainly can find a laundry list of his accomplishments as President that will take more than a few minutes to read and a day or so to digest. But Peter Wehner didn’t do that, or worse, did do such a look-see and then ignored his findings. Why would any reputable journalist dismiss such critical information? The answer is wrapped in one word from the previous sentence: “reputable.”

It is far too common to believe that most print editorialists have inside information (which Wehner claims to possess) that provides the truth of Trump’s ineptitude that justifies their inclusion in his editorial. But facts, understanding facts, and making educated and realistic conclusions from facts are not necessary must-have elements in most print or broadcast reports today. Wehner simply confirms his membership in a class of journalists void of any concern for the accuracy of their claims against this or any other President’s abilities.

What’s sad is this writer, like many others, presumes to own an unfettered right to foist onto Americans his personal fodder disguised as truth.  In reality, his claims are nothing more than leftist anti-Trump drivel. His doing so DOES enhance the animus held by many liberal minions against this President. Wehner justifies the absence in his piece of the opinions of the Christians he purports to “know.” That is an example of classic Leftist journalism today: bait and switch.

Wehner chose to use as support for his premise a recent Supreme Court case, Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia. That case decided in mid-June in which the majority opinion, written by Justice Neil Gorsuch, protected gay and transgender individuals from workplace discrimination, handing the LGBTQ movement a historic victory.

Wehner maintained that Gorsuch’s doing so was “a crushing blow for the religious right, and it must have dawned on more than a few of Trump’s evangelical supporters that if Hillary Clinton had won the presidency, the outcome of the case would have been the same; the only difference is that the margin probably would have been 7-2.”

How callous, how brazen, and how demeaning of Christians! Wehner, throughout his piece, used broad and sweeping assumptions about “Trump’s evangelical supporters” and what they feel about any Trump purported failures. Why was that case’s outcome so earth-shattering for Christians? I’ll assume here and say Wehner certainly did not ask any evangelical Trump supporter — certainly not me or anyone I know — how big a blow it was to their dream for this President to appoint a justice that ruled differently on this or any other issue which rebuffed the President’s wishes.

What other justification could any writer possess for their total denigration of the political appetites of 60+ million voters?

The truth is that NOT Wehner, NO other columnist at ANY newspaper, No broadcast journalist, No blogger or podcaster could possibly know the minds and hearts of ANY American without spending a massive amount of time conversing with not just one or two “social conservatives,” but with a few million of them. In this case, that didn’t happen.

Wehner did quote a conservative blogger named Rod Dreher — although Wehner never spoke to Dreher — claiming Dreher stated, “True, they (Supreme Court) have blocked some bad things over the years. That’s not nothing. But I think we’ve always known that judges are the real deal here.” Dreher continued, “Every institution — the media, academia, corporations, and others — are aginst us on gay and transgender rights, and GOP lawmakers are gutless. The only hope we had was that federal judges would protect the status quo. Now that’s gone.”

“If” Dreher really did say that, what he said was nothing more than a conservative American who, through a single SCOTUS decision, was disappointed to NOT receive his desired outcome. No doubt, many conservatives were too disappointed in that decision. Pardon me for assuming once again, but it is my opinion that few if any American feel it is possible for a majority of the justices to vote in support of conservative causes in every case that comes before them. Wehner apparently feels that because of what Dreher stated after the decision bashed the hopes of every Christian for this President to produce everything attempted in this presidency.

Wehner must think that all Christians are single-issue voters. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Without exhaustively recounting Trump’s wins for Americans, consider just a few:

  • Massive tax cuts for individuals and corporations;
  • The rollback of dozens of onerous regulations on energy companies and major corporations that incentivized previously vapid expansions, hirings of millions of new workers, and bringing manufacturers back to the U.S., something that his predecessor said was “gone forever” and would never return;
  • Undeniably massive new employment, plunging unemployment with the largest number of African Americans working than ever, and the highest labor participation rate in history;
  • Median household income is today the highest ever;
  • Regarding that Christian “single-issue” that Wehner claims is all that matters, Trump gave the biggest blow to Planned Parenthood in the last 30 years;
  • His tariff threats forced Mexico to stem the flow of illegals through the U.S. southern border;
  • He ordered the strike that killed Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi who had personally ordered the killing of hundreds of Americans;
  • He continues to appoint a record number of conservative judges to federal courts across the nation: 200 of those he nominated have been confirmed and are at work today.

We can stop there, but there are hundreds of others. It’s easy to conclude from facts without any assumptions that this President has done much more for Americans than just appointing two conservative justices to the Supreme Court.

Do you think Wehner really believes that Christians don’t care about all of this? Or does he truly think that millions of those who put Trump in the White House are turning away because a Supreme Court ruling on a case didn’t go their way? Accepting that requires a belief that Christian conservatives are too simple, single-minded, and blind to the issues that matter to EVERY American. And all those wins by this Administration dwarf those from his predecessor’s eight-year reign at the top.

The only thing proven in Wehner’s column is that Leftist members of the Media really are blind to the realities of the issues important to Christians. Abortion and LGBTQ issues are certainly important to them, but a call by the Court that goes the wrong way is certainly not an end-all. Trump’s accomplishments in total are monumental when compared to the accomplishments of the last three presidents combined.

After my response to Mr. Wehner, one question popped into my mind? Does he, or does any other writer, maintain that they represent the political hopes of Christian Americans? I think he really does. That alone explains the conclusions he reached sufficient to pen this column. He produced “fruit from a poison tree.” In this case, the tree from which originated the fruit he described was the tree of bias, partisan elitism, and Leftist ideology. That tree is certainly not embraced by any Christian I know. It’s certain that Wehner, if honest, would agree.

You will be shocked to learn that Peter Wehner is a Vice President and Senior Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “Ethics.”

Ethics is defined as “the rules of conduct recognized in respect to a particular class of human actions.” After digesting Wehner’s assault on President Trump, Wehner destroys what that institution stands for. But that’s common for Leftist members of the Media. Truth is valuable only when it feeds specific political narratives. In this case, Wehner failed.

Pandemic, Racial War: The Church Weighs In

Editor’s note: Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò has released this powerful letter today to President Trump warning him that the current crises over the coronavirus pandemic and the George Floyd riots are a part of the eternal spiritual struggle between the forces of good and evil. He encourages the president to continue the fight on behalf of the “children of light.” Read the letter here.

 

Sat Jun 6, 2020 – 11:59 am EST

Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò
Holy Trinity Sunday

Mr. President,

In recent months we have been witnessing the formation of two opposing sides that I would call Biblical: the children of light and the children of darkness. The children of light constitute the most conspicuous part of humanity, while the children of darkness represent an absolute minority. And yet the former are the object of a sort of discrimination which places them in a situation of moral inferiority with respect to their adversaries, who often hold strategic positions in government, in politics, in the economy and in the media. In an apparently inexplicable way, the good are held hostage by the wicked and by those who help them either out of self-interest or fearfulness.

These two sides, which have a Biblical nature, follow the clear separation between the offspring of the Woman and the offspring of the Serpent. On the one hand there are those who, although they have a thousand defects and weaknesses, are motivated by the desire to do good, to be honest, to raise a family, to engage in work, to give prosperity to their homeland, to help the needy, and, in obedience to the Law of God, to merit the Kingdom of Heaven. On the other hand, there are those who serve themselves, who do not hold any moral principles, who want to demolish the family and the nation, exploit workers to make themselves unduly wealthy, foment internal divisions and wars, and accumulate power and money: for them the fallacious illusion of temporal well-being will one day – if they do not repent – yield to the terrible fate that awaits them, far from God, in eternal damnation.

In society, Mr. President, these two opposing realities co-exist as eternal enemies, just as God and Satan are eternal enemies. And it appears that the children of darkness – whom we may easily identify with the deep state which you wisely oppose and which is fiercely waging war against you in these days – have decided to show their cards, so to speak, by now revealing their plans. They seem to be so certain of already having everything under control that they have laid aside that circumspection that until now had at least partially concealed their true intentions. The investigations already under way will reveal the true responsibility of those who managed the Covid emergency not only in the area of health care but also in politics, the economy, and the media. We will probably find that in this colossal operation of social engineering there are people who have decided the fate of humanity, arrogating to themselves the right to act against the will of citizens and their representatives in the governments of nations.

We will also discover that the riots in these days were provoked by those who, seeing that the virus is inevitably fading and that the social alarm of the pandemic is waning, necessarily have had to provoke civil disturbances, because they would be followed by repression which, although legitimate, could be condemned as an unjustified aggression against the population. The same thing is also happening in Europe, in perfect synchrony. It is quite clear that the use of street protests is instrumental to the purposes of those who would like to see someone elected in the upcoming presidential elections who embodies the goals of the deep state and who expresses those goals faithfully and with conviction. It will not be surprising if, in a few months, we learn once again that hidden behind these acts of vandalism and violence there are those who hope to profit from the dissolution of the social order so as to build a world without freedom: Solve et Coagula, as the Masonic adage teaches.

Although it may seem disconcerting, the opposing alignments I have described are also found in religious circles. There are faithful Shepherds who care for the flock of Christ, but there are also mercenary infidels who seek to scatter the flock and hand the sheep over to be devoured by ravenous wolves. It is not surprising that these mercenaries are allies of the children of darkness and hate the children of light: just as there is a deep state, there is also a deep church that betrays its duties and forswears its proper commitments before God. Thus the Invisible Enemy, whom good rulers fight against in public affairs, is also fought against by good shepherds in the ecclesiastical sphere. It is a spiritual battle, which I spoke about in my recent Appeal which was published on May 8.

For the first time, the United States has in you a President who courageously defends the right to life, who is not ashamed to denounce the persecution of Christians throughout the world, who speaks of Jesus Christ and the right of citizens to freedom of worship. Your participation in the March for Life, and more recently your proclamation of the month of April as National Child Abuse Prevention Month, are actions that confirm which side you wish to fight on. And I dare to believe that both of us are on the same side in this battle, albeit with different weapons.

For this reason, I believe that the attack to which you were subjected after your visit to the National Shrine of Saint John Paul II is part of the orchestrated media narrative which seeks not to fight racism and bring social order, but to aggravate dispositions; not to bring justice, but to legitimize violence and crime; not to serve the truth, but to favor one political faction. And it is disconcerting that there are Bishops – such as those whom I recently denounced – who, by their words, prove that they are aligned on the opposing side. They are subservient to the deep state, to globalism, to aligned thought, to the New World Order which they invoke ever more frequently in the name of a universal brotherhood which has nothing Christian about it, but which evokes the Masonic ideals of those want to dominate the world by driving God out of the courts, out of schools, out of families, and perhaps even out of churches.

The American people are mature and have now understood how much the mainstream media does not want to spread the truth but seeks to silence and distort it, spreading the lie that is useful for the purposes of their masters. However, it is important that the good – who are the majority – wake up from their sluggishness and do not accept being deceived by a minority of dishonest people with unavowable purposes. It is necessary that the good, the children of light, come together and make their voices heard. What more effective way is there to do this, Mr. President, than by prayer, asking the Lord to protect you, the United States, and all of humanity from this enormous attack of the Enemy? Before the power of prayer, the deceptions of the children of darkness will collapse, their plots will be revealed, their betrayal will be shown, their frightening power will end in nothing, brought to light and exposed for what it is: an infernal deception.

Mr. President, my prayer is constantly turned to the beloved American nation, where I had the privilege and honor of being sent by Pope Benedict XVI as Apostolic Nuncio. In this dramatic and decisive hour for all of humanity, I am praying for you and also for all those who are at your side in the government of the United States. I trust that the American people are united with me and you in prayer to Almighty God.

United against the Invisible Enemy of all humanity, I bless you and the First Lady, the beloved American nation, and all men and women of good will.

Have You Had Enough?

I hope not, because they’re just getting started.

Remember yesterday I told you the gloves are off at TruthNewsNetwork. We are through at couching explanations for egregious acts taken by the Left: the media AND politicians AND their minions. We going forward are going to give you facts about what happens every day as we always have. But we’re going to give you the perspective of the possibilities for those actions being taken. We will always make clear what is fact and what is opinion. But the muck and mire in media today make it really difficult to even see the things that are happening let alone determine their purposes and meanings.

Why is All This Happening?

It’s all “purpose-driven.” What is the purpose and who is driving the activity? That answer is not a simple one. It’s detailed, it’s lengthy, but it is relevant. Let’s spend a bit of time to carve out a block of understanding.

  • Everything that happens (or does not happen) in Washington is politically driven. When I say “everything,” that’s exactly what I mean! Congressional recesses, receptions, visits from foreign dignitaries, press conferences, dates and times for press conferences, dates and times for filing legislation, whether or not legislation is considered on the floor of the House or Senate, who sponsors and who co-sponsors bills, who speaks on the floor and who does not. All of these things and numerous others are each and every one politically devised and offered to the American people always with one objective: to further the cause of the political entity in charge. And that means BOTH Democrats and Republicans.
  • Everything that happens in its purpose(s) is to, among other things, always attack the leaders of the opposing party. For example: any legislation that is put forth in the House of Representatives today has very little DIRECT ties to how that legislation is to and will impact the Americans for which it is offered. Oh, each piece always has some goodies attached to pacify the electorate. Every legislative House action in this Congress is fundamentally driven to defeat Donald Trump: Everyone.
  • In the Senate, under GOP control, actions are devised to protect the Republican agenda that at least in part is in place: confirmation of ambassadors, administration officials, circuit judges, district judges, appeals court judges, and the biggie: the US Supreme Court.
  • The Media march to the beat of one solemn drum: denigrate Donald Trump and destroy any and all of his supporters; keep a narrative created and rebounded throughout each day to cloud the reasoning of as many Americans as possible. And to be successful at that task, they must hide the truth by wrapping it in what they determine is a palatable package so as not to offend too many conservatives. (Examples of that below that happened yesterday (Monday))
  • This combination of what has become a “D.C. Monster” has been laughed at, derided, rebuffed, and scoffed at for a couple of decades. Its final designation seems to be the “Deep State.” Few will now take issue with that term because during the last three years Americans see daily the actions of a coordinated combination of Leftist politicians and diplomats along with the Media mouthpiece of the Deep State. They no longer even try to hide it! It’s in full view.
  • To be successful, all those considered to be “turncoats” to this cause must be eliminated: either literally or denigrated so vehemently over an extended period of time as to destroy the public credibility these people have. No punishment is too severe. There are many who have actually paid the price for their refusal to “play ball” with the Deep State that have mysteriously disappeared or have died.

The Media in All This — YESTERDAY (Monday, June 1, 2020)

Monday, President Trump shocked the world — especially those in Washington — by conducting a press conference in the Rose Garden and then heading with his Secretary of Defense, Secretary of Homeland Security, Chief of Staff, his daughter, son-in-law and a covey of Secret Service agents across Washington Park to St. Johns Church — the church that rioters looted during the last few days. He had in his press briefing made it clear that the issues that have happened around the nation in multiple cities that purportedly began as peaceful protests were all right: while just protests. But when in each city protests and protestors were allowed to become rioters and looters, the leadership in those cities and states were legally responsible for protecting their citizens, the property and businesses in those cities and states, and to enforce the laws of each state regarding protesting and rioting. I think it’s safe to say that the Media showed us NO demonstration during the past week in which any city or state effectively quashed the rioting.

Yet, mayors, governors, members of Congress, and pretty much everyone in the press blame President Trump. They do this in spite of the fact that each knows the President by law cannot take law enforcement or military action in any state without request, authorization, and implementation jointly with those cities and states.

I’ve heard more than one mayor, one governor, and one state Attorney General tell the President via mass media to stay out of their city and state! And he has — until Monday.

He put those mayors and governors on notice that “peaceful protest is legal and fine as long as they abide by the laws. Riots are NOT legal and will no longer be accepted in the United States.” U.S. citizens are watching as their private property, their businesses, and their livelihood are torched by thugs (yes, I used the word thugs) who are nothing more than anarchists who care not for the purpose of the peaceful protests. They simply want the U.S. government and all democrat political operations in the United States to cease. Their goal? To make that happen.

What’s the End Result Hoped For by the Deep State?

That answer is simple: to get rid of Donald Trump.

Why?

They have never seen a politician at any level in the United States who has such fundamental convictions regarding the Constitution, the Rule of Law, the rights of citizens, and the absurdity of the U.S. political system as it is in process today. And they do not know how to deal with it and him. So they wish to destroy him.

They cannot beat him at the ballot box. They failed in multiple bogus investigations including impeachment. They this year have used a worldwide pandemic to weaponize against the President. And now they have a new and nastier tool: anarchy.

Isn’t is sad that so many people have been sacrificed at the altar of power for the Deep State? Americans have literally been slaughtered just to try and tear down the achievements for the people by this man.

Why would they take such drastic measures? I could speculate here, and won’t. But what I will say is in my lifetime I’ve seen only two possible answers for such actions to be taken. And I’ve never seen any that have had such devastating results during their quest to use and to win.

The members of the Deep State cannot reconcile in their minds why a billionaire who has everything one could want in life decided to jump into politics and jump in right at the top. They cannot fathom what his endgame can possibly be.

Charlie Kirk put it succinctly in an interview about his new book. Take a listen:

Summary

Donald Trump has for two days been receiving counsel from those in his Administration about how to address the racial horrors unfolding on the streets of the U.S. Some wanted a speech to the nation. Others thought that would be too dangerous and become nothing more than political talking points. The President thought it through and made his historical speech and trek through Washington Park to St. Johns Church with a Bible. He didn’t give a speech. He just told the World that the U.S. was and is the greatest nation on Earth. We’re having difficulties, but we’re coming back. And we’re going to be stronger than ever.

I actually watched that unfold and got teary-eyed! There is no doubt that historians will mark that trip to the church as a historical moment.

Here’s how the Mainstream Media gave it to the nation with their story and news headlines:

Donald Trump says “I am your law and order president,” orders “heavily-armed soldiers to D.C. and threatens to deploy military nationwide — then has protestors tear-gassed so he can walk to a fire-damaged church and brandish a Bible (The Dail Mail)

Trump declares himself the “law and order” president as peaceful protestors are dispersed (CNN)

Trump threatens to deploy military against protestors as teargas fired outside White House (The Guardian)

Trump vows to send military to U.S. cities if governors don’t “dominate” protestors (MSNBC)

Do you see it? They are unified, on target with their purpose, and moving ever forward in strength to re-establish the Deep State as in total control.

The sad thing in all this? They want to accomplish it without Americans even knowing the Deep State exists!

Critical Time to “Know” What is Going on Under our Noses

Yesterday, TNN presented a story penned by NBC writers alleging the President has not and is not participating in the daily President Daily Briefing (PDB) presented to him in the Oval Office by Intelligence officials. That story, along with others already presented by various media sources along with new videos and stories being released daily, proves exactly what the Media is doing. They have weaponized their reporting and have launched an aggressive and coordinated attack on the President to lay a foundation for his impeachment. This impeachment will be to show he is inept as a leader during a crisis (Coronavirus) and is oblivious to the essential issues presented daily to every president by intelligence officials to keep the President informed of the critical intelligence information necessary to keep America safe.

What the Mainstream Media do not realize is that there are those in the U.S. that are on to their methods. They have perfected the process of creating false news and information inserted in stories that they present to America as not just factual, but give “sources” for the information they provide to us all. The problem is, there are NEVER any sources! But we’re told in each case there ARE sources.

Today we will unpack their process so that from today forward, YOU will be able to discern what’s real and what’s fake in every media report you hear, read, or see. Let’s get going.

The Plan

Here’s how the process has started. NBC “seeded” the first story. Then MSNBC followed up. CNN has not engaged yet, but you can be confident they will join the NBC networks, the New York Times, Washington Post, and other news outlets in short order. Here’s the first “shot” fired by NBC on Tuesday with the PDB fiasco:

“U.S. intelligence agencies issued warnings about the novel coronavirus in more than a dozen classified briefings prepared for President Donald Trump in January and February, months during which he continued to play down the threat, according to current and former U.S. officials. The repeated warnings were conveyed in issues of the President’s Daily Brief, a sensitive report that is produced before dawn each day and designed to call the president’s attention to the most significant global developments and security threats.”

The important nugget from those two sentences is this phrase: “according to current and former officials.” They named not a single source. If this was a credible news story that originated from real sources, they would be named. There was no source. Let’s continue.

“…But the alarms appear to have failed to register with the president, who routinely skips reading the PDB and has at times shown little patience even for the oral summary he now takes two or three times per week, according to the officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss classified material.

There is not a single person who works in the White House — especially someone who participates in intelligence briefings — that would risk not only a job, but a family and freedom to speak to a news outlet revealing classified information. We all know how the whistleblower program works. We’ve watched as it’s been used and abused in intelligence dissemination in the last year. If such a person was so concerned with the President’s action and felt the world should know about it, that person would never arbitrarily commit professional suicide by talking to NBC, they’d file a legal whistlblower complaint. Anytime a news story lists “anonymous sources,” be assured there is no source.

It’s odd that NBC then quickly left their antagonistic attacks on Mr. Trump and inserted a reply from “a White House Spokesman:” A White House spokesman disputed the characterization that Trump was slow to respond to the virus threat. “President Trump rose to fight this crisis head-on by taking early, aggressive historic action to protect the health, wealth and well-being of the American people,” said the spokesman, Hogan Gidley. “We will get through this difficult time and defeat this virus because of his decisive leadership.”

Quoting a legitimate member of the Administration even though it’s a denial of the purported claims made by that “anonymous” source is used purposely to frame the story as truthful and legitimate. It is anything but that.

Fast forward to Tuesday on Morning Joe on MSNBC. Joe and Mika pick up the “Denigrate Trump for claiming his dismissal of intelligence warnings about Coronavirus,” by first quoting stories from the past that include quotes from “three people.” While they make their claims on camera, on the screen behind are headlines from the New York Times and Washington Post with headlines that parrot the claims they are making. Their sources? Three people, none of who were named in the previous stories from which they quote, nor are they called in THIS report. Then Mika and Joe pass the mike to their White House correspondent. Her statement is SO vital in exposing these network tactics you must listen to it (1:44 in length):  

There it is again: “We’ve talked to people, members of his intelligence team…” NO names, NO titles, and made to sound as if members of the President’s National Security Office just run out on the street hunting down reporters to tattle on the President!

Here’s the Golden Rule of “real” reporting: If there is a real source for a story and within the story is a qualification of the truth in that story that mentions a source, that source is ALWAYS named. Yes, there are times when there are legitimate reasons sources are not named. But in those cases, the purpose(s) for their anonymity is ALWAYS included as an explanation for the unnamed source.

The Evil Web they Spin

The process of which you just saw Part A can and often does go much further. The creators of these specific fake stories know that Americans will almost always assume when a newsperson or writer quotes a source, “it must be true.” And news producers, writers, and editors have often weaponized that fact to use against political opponents: in this case, the President.

Is there a Part B and Part C and so on? Absolutely! This is only the tip of the iceberg. Now, they just begin the game of “Pass the Cake.”

The “Cake” is the fake story that was created at NBC. What NBC did in the Tuesday story was lay the groundwork to show Americans this president is so inept he cannot digest facts presented in his daily intelligence briefings. NBC passed the Cake to its little sister, MSNBC. MSNBC then added to the Cake they received from NBC (remember those two newspaper headlines behind Mika and Joe: the Washington Post and New York Times). Mika and Joe quoted additional “anonymous” sources while stating they had confirmed the facts in their story. Who established the facts in that story to Mika, Joe, and the White House reporter? NBC is the source for the original story and therefore added the “factualness” necessary for any other news outlet to quote the story stating, “sources confirmed…”

Summary

Watch and see how this story grows. It morphed into an even larger and more referenced account during the day Tuesday!

There are two things you need to understand before we finish this today. They are the keys to recognizing truth and untruths in ALL news reporting — especially when about President Trump:

  1.  Anytime a negative story is presented about someone, and a critical part of the story is to denigrate the subject, it will usually name a source. If that named source is not a person but instead an “unnamed” or “anonymous” or “confidential” reference in the story, there is no real source. Credible news outlets will not allow such stories to be published. If the story is factual and mentions sources, it will always name the source;
  2. In this chain of fake reporting, there is always an originator. Once that story is published, another news outlet will rewrite the story, post the story with a disclaimer that states: “Sources have confirmed….” Remember: the only story source is the news outlet that published the story. They then become the “source that has confirmed…” The third reprint of the story will then replace the old disclaimer with a new one that states: “Multiple sources have confirmed…”

This may seem infantile to you. In reality, it is the worst form of lying known to Mankind. It is weaponized to not only hurt the subject of the story but to use that false narrative created to destroy whatever that story subject has done well, which the news source — the REAL news source, the one that created the original story — designed to destroy the subject.

Using that logic, one can surmise that NBC and MSNBC created very deftly and professionally a story that includes all of the real journalistic methodology used in professional reporting. But they didn’t stop there. They had to keep going. Why? In this case, President Trump is guilty of none of what the NBC story alleged! You and I both know if there were one shred of fact in their allegations, proof of it would have long ago been plastered across every newspaper and be a lead story in every news broadcast around the world.

The anti-Trump, hate-Trump media have launched a well-planned and devised an attack on President Donald J. Trump. I am as confident as it is possible that this is an orchestrated plan put in place by Democrat Party operatives to be the groundstone of the next impeachment trial of Donald Trump.

To that end, this story will undoubtedly grow. But there are dozens of others that have been passed around like seed to various news outlets to systematically publish story after story with one and only one purpose: build a case to bring Trump up on charges of being incapable of fulfilling the role necessary for any President to fill.

Destiny

Far too many Americans and those in other countries find themselves this Sunday consumed with uncertainty and fear: uncertainty in knowing what is happening that has so quickly altered even the foundation of their lives; fearful of what is going to happen next. All of this is the product of this virus named COVID-19. EVERYONE’S life has been and is being impacted in the most fundamental ways. NOTHING is the same.

I don’t know about you, but when I in my past faced unthinkable horrors no fault of my own, I always tried to take a little time and measure all of it based on one question: “Where is God in this?” My thinking is: “If I can find God’s purpose in it, I can, with His help, get through it.”

Sometimes it works and I find a way out. But sometimes, I get stuck right in the middle. In either case, it’s been critical for me to find God’s purpose.

As we all fight the fear of the unknown in our lives we fight hard to resist the temptations to fear. Don’t allow yourself to sink into the funk that comes with all the “What If” questions.

When all else fails, start expressing thanks for all the people in your life. Express it verbally — to ALL of them. If you share the same address, express thanks to them personally. If they’re still alive but somewhere else, express thanks to them via Skype, FaceTime, or old fashion telephone.

Doing that will certainly improve your relationships. It will certainly build their opinion of you. We may never know how much good that does.

During this pandemic with all of its uncertainties, know this one thing: we NEVER know what God is doing inside our circumstances. He’s always one step ahead of us it seems. He’s always putting plans in place. The secret is to find and see what His plans are.

Take a look at one spiritual situation in the lives of two women and the impact of their response to the experience. As you’ll see, when they followed the path they felt  was their purchase. It changed numerous lives.

This short video (five minutes) is inciteful, impactful, and incredible. And it will answer your question “What is happening in the lives of our political leaders?”

I’m going to spend a little extra time thanking a few people today for all they mean to me. And I’m certainly going to be thankful for God’s purposes at times and in ways it’s impossible to understand. But He did them. And He continues to do them.

“Could’ve, Should’ve, Would’ve”

Now that it appears that the nation has turned the corner on coronavirus, let the blame game begin. After all, isn’t everything that’s happened in the last 3.5 years the direct result of Donald Trump? Wait: I said “everything.” That can’t be right. Let’s restate that: “…isn’t everything BAD that’s happened in the last 3.5 years the direct result of Donald Trump?” There’s a BIG difference there. As a matter of fact, if you listen to anybody that even leans a bit left politically, not very much good HAS happened since 2016. Anything that happened that was good was because of the policies of Barack Obama, Democrats in Congress, and because those Democrats beat back the attempts of the GOP to hurt the American people.

It may not be quite like that. But if it’s not an actual representation of how the political ride of this administration has been, it’s awfully close.

Now, the Left has another arrow in their quiver with which to attack Donald Trump: Coronavirus.

“Tony, Boy”

Dr. Anthony Fauci, known to the world as THE infectious disease expert of all experts. He knows it all when it comes to measles, whooping cough, and pandemics. No one has more street cred on these subjects than does Dr. Fauci.

Who will ever forget that meeting in early January in which Dr. Fauci predicted the tragic results of COVID-19 we’ve seen in our country in the last few months? Indeed, that day in January will go down in history. That was the day when Dr. Fauci gave the advice to the White House to eliminate social contact between Americans as best as possible and to quickly close schools, tighten down on human connection in every other gathering, and avoid human contact altogether. I’ll never forget the doctor’s press briefing in which he told Americans there was hope, that if we did everything he said for us to do, we’d get through this with minimal losses. (I think that was in mid-January) Surely CNN and MSNBC will replay those press conferences to illustrate how the President ignored the specialist’s warnings.

Here’s the latest Dr. Tony Fauci headline: “White House coronavirus expert Dr. Tony Fauci said Sunday lives could have been saved if the US had been shut down earlier. Speaking on CNN, the immunologist said the US could start to reopen next month, but warned a second wave of the virus could still hit the country.’

Here’s the rest of Sunday’s CNN story about Dr. Fauci’s interview:

During the interview, Fauci revealed that the government had been advised to begin social distancing measures in February. President Trump announced plans to roll out “self-isolating” in mid March.

“We look at it from a pure health standpoint,” Fauci said. “We make a recommendation, often the recommendation is taken, sometimes it’s not. But it is what it is.”

Fauci was then asked if lives could have been saved if stay at home measures had started in February, rather than almost a month later. “Obviously you could logically say that if you had a process that was ongoing and you started mitigation earlier you could’ve saved lives, obviously,” he replied. “No-one is going to deny that. But there was a lot of pushback about shutting things down back then.”

“Could’ve, Should’ve, Would’ve”

Here’s a partial timeline of the U.S. governments direct actions at the beginning of Coronavirus:

Jan. 6, 2020: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns Americans to take precautions if traveling to China.

Jan. 7: The CDC’s Emergency Operations Center activates a COVID-19 Incident Management System,  used to direct operations, deliver resources and share information.

Jan. 8: The CDC issues an alert about the coronavirus, saying it is “closely monitoring” the disease and that there are “no known U.S. cases.”

Jan. 14: The World Health Organization issues a statement about the first COVID-19 case outside of China, saying, “There is no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission.”

Jan. 17: The CDC holds its first COVID-19 telebriefing. Officials say that the agency will start screening passengers on direct or connecting flights from Wuhan. However, they said that they are not aware of measures regarding exit screening in Wuhan.

Jan. 21: The first case of the coronavirus in the U.S. is confirmed in a patient near Seattle.

Jan. 29: Trump announces the creation of the President’s Coronavirus Task Force to lead the “United States government response to the novel 2019 coronavirus and with keeping him apprised of developments.” The White House said the task force was being led by Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar.

Jan. 31: The Trump administration suspends entry into the United States by foreign nationals who traveled to China within the last 14 days (excluding Hong Kong and Macau). This does not apply to lawful U.S. residents and family members/ spouses of U.S. residents or citizens. Azar declares a U.S. public health emergency for COVID-19. The declaration was retroactive to Jan. 27.

Feb. 6: The first U.S. citizen diagnosed with the coronavirus dies in Wuhan, China, the U.S. Embassy in Beijing says.

Feb. 7: Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announces a U.S. pledge of $100 million to help China and other countries combat the coronavirus. The pledge is also mentioned in an HHS press briefing with members of the coronavirus task force.

Feb. 18: The CDC issues an order requiring airlines to provide information about any passenger coming from China within 14 days of their entry into the U.S.

Feb. 24: The White House asks Congress for $1.25 billion in new funding to help with coronavirus response. The administration also asked to move $535 million more from an Ebola preparedness account.

Feb. 26: Trump announces that Vice President Mike Pence will head the U.S. response to the coronavirus outbreak.

Feb. 29: First U.S. death related to the coronavirus is announced after an individual in Washington state dies from the illness. That same day, Trump and Pence announce additional travel restrictions involving Iran and an advisory against traveling to certain parts of Italy and South Korea.

March 2: Trump and members of the coronavirus task force meet with pharmaceutical companies to discuss speeding up the development of a vaccine and treatments for the coronavirus. Trump claims some of the companies said that a vaccine would be ready in three to four months. The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci, later clarified that a year to a year and a half would be a more accurate timetable.

Trump signs an $8.3 billion spending package to combat the coronavirus. This comes a day after the Senate approved the House-passed legislation.

Trump travels to CDC headquarters in Atlanta and at one point says he “wouldn’t generally be inclined” to cancel travel and social gatherings.

This timeline was produced by a news source that is almost exclusive anti-Trump in its stories. Therefore it comes as no surprise they did NOT mention one very important dig at the President in their timeline: Where is the day in which Dr. Fauci recommended to the President (or any other member of the task force) that we needed to begin social distancing?

In hindsight, there we probably “could’ve” had fewer U.S. cases and subsequent deaths if we had much more information. And if we had that information from the experts at the time, President Trump “would’ve” announced the necessity for social distancing. And if he had all that information along with Dr. Fauci’s recommendation and did NOT push for social distancing, he certainly “should’ve.”

With Dr. Fauci’s CNN interview comment that “we certainly could have saved lives if we began social distancing sooner” “could’ve” been true. In retrospect, that social distancing policy “should’ve” been given to the general public. We’ll never know factually, but if the social distancing policy would have been better explained along with its grave importance to the American people, it probably “would’ve” saved more of our citizens from coronavirus death.

Blame Game

Stop right now and do a Google search: “The first announcement promoting social distancing in coronavirus pandemic.”

The earliest I can find is by Dr. Fauci in a March 20th interview on PBS. In that interview, he did NOT make a demonstrative statement about social distancing or even recommending any type of strict guidelines. He was asked what was his fear about the virus and its impact on Americans and he replied, “I’m worried that too many people will not adhere to staying away from big groups, going to restaurants and bars, and putting themselves and other Americans in harms way.”

There was NOTHING in that interview nor was there ever any indication to the public by Dr. Fauci or any other member of the task force that social distancing was a necessity to stop its spread.

And then Sunday, April 12, Dr. Fauci deflected any accountability for there being NO earlier warning to “others” in government — without saying it, he meant the President.

And the Sunday news media have taken stories about that to the moon.

Experts

Remember when the President ordered the travel ban on January 31 for anyone coming to the U.S. from China? Remember what Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), both said about it? Both called it “unnecessary, political, rash, racist, xenophobic, and unconstitutional.”

“Experts” have repeatedly stated that travel ban probably saved the lives of tens of thousands of Americans who would have been exposed to additional entries from China of those carrying the virus. 400,000 travelers from China entered the U.S. in the 90-days before the travel ban!

It certainly made a difference. Yet for that sensible decision — in defiance of the World Health Organization — Mr. Trump was criticized by Democrats such as Joe Biden as xenophobic, and by China as racist.

“This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia — hysterical xenophobia — and fearmongering,” said Biden the day after the travel restrictions were imposed.

CNN ran a story warning that “the US coronavirus travel ban could backfire” and have the effect of “stigmatizing countries and ethnicities.”

The Chinese Communist Party’s official mouthpiece, the People’s Daily, called the ban “racist.”

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus warned it would increase “fear and stigma, with little public health benefit.”

What it DID do was stop thousands from being exposed.

Most Americans applaud the President’s early actions. But those early actions initiated by Mr. Trump and others in his administration are rarely mentioned in today’s media. They no longer just ignore the good things and great results and accomplishments by this administration; they make up stories that feed the narrative of a now-dwindling group of “expert” politicians and news journalists.

Has anyone thought this through?

January 15, House Democrats delivered two articles of impeachment to the United States Senate. Democrats knew the Republican-controlled Senate would not have enough votes to convict President Trump. But that didn’t deter House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) from wasting government time, resources, and attention for months in a doomed effort to remove Donald Trump from the White House. Six days later, on January 21, the first known case of novel coronavirus (COVID-19, or the Wuhan virus) was reported in the United States. There was a little matter of those impeachment articles being handed over to the Senate for an impeachment trial. Pelosi sat on them for two weeks!

How much did you hear from Democrat leaders during that time regarding their coronavirus concerns? Nothing. But we listened to a lot about impeachment: NONSTOP. Come to think of it, what have we heard from Democrat leaders when they continuously attack the President for not doing soon enough enough that the President SHOULD be doing? NOTHING.

It’s not about leadership to the Left. It’s about the politicization of what they see as one more opportunity to impeach Donald Trump, either literally or figuratively.

While the Left predictably gathers steam to condemn Trump for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, congressional Democrats have escaped any accountability for ignoring the early stages of the outbreak. And, with no sense of irony, the very journalists and pundits who cheered impeachment are the same folks now blasting the president for “not doing enough” to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Some things never change in Washington. The greatest of those things is that Democrats attack every person in any position in life who refuses to bow at their altar of Identity Politics. How’s that going to work out for them in November?
