NSA Advisor General H.R. McMaster is being blasted continuously by a contentious White House Press Corp based on a WASHINGTON POST story claiming that President Trump in a White House meeting gave inadvertent classified intelligence to the Russian Foreign Minister about ISIS. That information was provided to the U.S. by its foreign intelligence partners. The POST claims that foreign countries are aghast at the President’s actions and are all considering terminating their sharing of such information with the U.S. Apparently the POST’s claim is unfounded.
Wait a minute: a national newspaper story might not be true? One about President Donald Trump? How could that be possible? The WASHINGTON POST makes itself out to be the watchdog of journalistic truth and integrity. They would NEVER print a story that was not sourced, sourced again, and again, and that every source and every story — especially one about such a vital U.S. intelligence process — was absolutely true beyond any remote possibility of error. Yet once again, they have opened yet another door for the Leftist Socialist Media to attack President Trump. The New York Times said in a story the country that gave that intelligence to the U.S. was Israel and that the Israelis were so upset they were considering sharing such intelligence with the U.S. no more. But then we heard this: “Israel has full confidence in our intelligence-sharing relationship with the United States and looks forward to deepening that relationship in the years ahead under President Trump.” That from Ron Dermer, Israeli ambassador to the United States, said in a statement responding to the report.
“Symbolism over Substance” again…and again…and again. The Leftist Socialist Media in its self-proclaimed role as “keeper of all things politically correct” lays aside its responsibilities as journalists and become judges of all things Trump — again. It doesn’t matter that the conversation in the Oval Office between the President, his NSA Advisor, Secretary of State, and the Russian Foreign Minister was about working together to obliterate a common foe: ISIS. All that mattered was the WASHINGTON POST report that apparently was incorrect. “Symbolism over Substance.”
So here we go: “Mr. President, STOP the daily White House Press briefings. They do not listen. They do not care about truth or factual reporting. They do not care about their responsibility to report actual news to Americans. They care only about discrediting your Administration, the White House, and you. Your obligation to give Americans factual information about your Administration’s policies and actions does NOT include codifying a Leftist Social Media ‘daily bash the President’ group. Let them submit for 6 days their questions they want answers from you in response. You and your staff decide to which to respond, then that next day have a presser and give the responses. Mr. President, they don’t like you, and they want to take you down. The Truth matters only to the American People and you.”
Honestly I would rather the President follow my suggestion from a few days ago which was to do a once a week YouTube video bringing policy information directly to Americans bypassing the Socialist spin that inevitably gets added to anything anyone in the Administration says.
PLEASE: Make it happen!
