Unstable is the word of the day and the MSM will lay it at Trump’s doorstep, but it didn’t start in the last 80 days.
Let’s start with the world situation.
Syria uses chemical weapons on their own people. The cry in the MSM is “what is Trump going to do about it”? The chemical weapons didn’t just happen since January 20th. Remember Obama’s “red line” that they crossed immediately? Then he said he had a deal with the Russians where “all the weapons were removed”. He was either naive or lied. You choose.
Our message to the MSM is that we are here because of the failed foreign policy of the previous administration. Stop with the Trump bashing, this is not something that developed in the last 80 days, and Trump is not going to lay out any red lines. He actually thinks that ISIS is our fight and not Syria today. We happen to agree.
On North Korea you (the MSM) are leading with “explosive” stories about new missile firings. Once again this did not develop over the past 80 days; your failure to cover it for eight years does not constitute a new crisis now. The President and his team will decide what actions to take and we are confident you will find fault. But we repeat, he sees the first issue to deal with is ISIS. He’s right.
He inherited a mess you failed to see or report. One at a time.
Are they really going to do this?
Are the Democrats really going to drive the Gorsuch nomination to a filibuster? They can’t be that scared of left leaning primaries to do that. If they do, all they will accomplish is make the next nomination easier. That is the one they should be worried about.
And really, does Schumer really forget his 18 month no nominee to George Bush? And do they forget Joe Biden’s no way in the last 12 months?
No regrets he says:
An update on a story from yesterday. DNC head Tom Perez said he has no regrets of the four letter words or language used to bash Trump and team.
“Perez said he has no regrets” about the remark that has drawn fire from the Republican National Committeee and conservative critics.
“I don’t,” Perez said. “What I have regrets about are all the people who are scared to death as a result of the first 60 days of chaos and carnage in this administration”.
Really? What about the chaos you left behind we outline above, should we feel good about that; or good about Obamacare? Or how you treated our law enforcement?
Is there anything to the Susan Rice story?
It certainly smells like there is. But not to some in the MSM. As an example, on CNN their evening host Don Lemon went so far as to announce he would ignore the news at all costs. Lemon began “CNN Tonight” with an announcement that the Rice report is a “fake scandal ginned up by right-wing media and Trump” that he would not be baited into justifying with coverage.
Morning host Chris Cuomo claimed it was “demonstrably untrue” Rice sought surveillance of the Trump team.
“New Day,” anchor Alisyn Camerota openly pleaded with Sen. John McCain to write-off the news as unimportant.
ABC, CBS, and NBC didn’t cover it the first day and are grudgingly beginning a little now.
Fox News and Business is all over it.
Who’s right? We’ll see, but ask yourself this. If Bush’s team had done this to Obama’s on the way in how would the MSM see it?
In our opinion this is going to be a bigger story and is related to an odd move by Obama just weeks before he left the WH. Here’s how the Atlantic magazine wrote it’s opening paragraph about it.
“On Thursday, the Obama administration finalized new rules that allow the National Security Agency to share information it gleans from its vast international surveillance apparatus with the 16 other agencies that make up the U.S. intelligence community”.
Why did he do that? It’s not in his DNA to break privacy rules and why in the last days? There is a connection there, watch.
Here’s the full story from The Atlantic but you can find more if you want:
See if you hear this on the MSM. Illegal border crossings since Trump took office are down over 60%. The Washington Times this AM:
“Illegal immigration across the southwest border is down more than 60 percent so far under President Trump, officials revealed Tuesday, even before the first new agent is hired or the first mile of his promised border wall is constructed.
Mr. Trump took a victory lap over the “record reductions” in illegal crossers, saying he is already saving Americans’ jobs by preventing them from having to compete with unauthorized workers.
Down 61 percent since inauguration. Gen. Kelly is doing a fantastic job,”
