How The Mainstream Media Has ‘Fundamentally Transformed’ Even The TRUTH Into ‘Fake News’ By Weaponizing The Truth

May 4, 2017

I watch the White House press corp. do its thing every now and then, and I regularly read the Los Angeles Times and USA Today scan a number of other news sources.  And overall, for Donald Trump, it’s “Damned if he does, but also damned if he doesn’t.”  If he follows through with his campaign promises, they attack him as rigidly inflexible, but if he compromises in any way they attack him for compromising in any way.  In the press briefing yesterday, for example, a reporter fixated on “wall” such that ANY kind of wall that contained ANY kind of fencing whatsoever – including on structures that have always been CALLED walls such as “bollard walls” and “levy walls” are in face “fences” and not hypertechnically “walls” even though the federal government engineers have always CALLED them “walls.”  And therefore President Trump would be breaking his word to build a “wall.”  I’m not kidding.  They did that.  Look at the briefing transcript.  So on the one hand they are rabidly dead set against Trump building a wall and will demonize and slander him as a racist and every other hateful thing if he does so, but if he in any way, shape or form tries to negotiate or compromise, they’ll frame him as a liar.  They will not allow him to be “flexible.”  They just will not.

This is every single day on every single issue.  I’ve seen numerous mainstream media outlets questioning Trump’s motives on being willing to talk, for example, with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un for “appeasing” and “coddling” dictators.   CNN’s opening salvo on May 1 was this:

The President has made a habit of praising the leaders of some of the most oppressive regimes, calling Kim Jong-Un a pretty smart cookie issuing a surprise White House invite to the Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte who was – has bragged about personally killing suspected criminals when he was a mayor. And famously defending Vladimir Putin again and again and again and planning to speak to the Russian president in just hours. We will talk about that in a moment. So, is this a deliberate strategy or is the President just not up to speed?

The editorial board of the LA Times hurled an article at Trump titled “Schmoozing with a killer” on May 2.  And you go back to the pure, rabid hate and contempt that the Lost Angeles Slimes threw at Trump in their six-series by the same editorial board titled “Our Dishonest President” that begins, “It was no secret during the campaign that Donald Trump was a narcissist and a demagogue who used fear and dishonesty to appeal to the worst in American voters.”  And just realize that these are people pathologically incapable of anything remotely close to “fair and balanced.”  They are unfair and unhinged.

Now, when Barack Obama declared that he would be willing to talk with dictators including pretty much all the players that they are now viciously attacking Trump for being willing to talk to now, the same mainstream media heralded it as the greatest vapor of fresh air the universe had ever breathed.  When Obama gave $400 million in unmarked bills packed in crates in a secret flight to the world’s worst supporter of terrorism, the mainstream media yawned.  When Obama basically gave that same world’s worst sponsor of hate and violence on earth $33.6 billion which they could use to finance their ballistic missile system which is necessary for them for when they break Obama’s stupid nuclear treaty that was dishonestly presented to the American people and in which Obama openly pardoned the worst terrorist murderers on the face of the earth if you want to talk about schmoozing with killers – the mainstream media yawned.  Or we could talk about all the lies surrounding Obama’s decision to schmooze with killers when he traded five terrorist generals with the blood of American servicemen on their hands for a confirmed traitor named Bergdahl and Susan Rice declared that acts of treason was synonymous with “serving with honor and distinction.”  I could literally go on and on about Obama schmoozing with killers.  Obama watched a baseball game with a hard-core murderous dictator named Raul Castro.  CNN called it “baseball diplomacy.”

You would get very filthy rich if you had a chance to accept a high-stakes bet that CNN wouldn’t call it that if Trump did the same exact thing with dictator Putin that Obama did with dictator Castro.  The Philippines have been one of America’s staunchest allies in Southeast Asia since before World War II; Cuba was a steadfast enemy of the United States until Obama unilaterally decided they were our friends and allies.  So the same mainstream media that demonizes Trump for befriending the dictator of one of our very best friends since World War II is the same media that praised Obama for befriending the dictator of one of our worst enemies since World War II.  You have to be a LIBERAL to be that kind of a moral hypocrite.

The mainstream media is as dishonest as the sun is hot.  And hot damn is that sun ever hot.  Not that the sun has anything whatsoever to do with global warming, which is entirely caused by humans, mind you.

So, again, if Trump actually takes a strong stand against the dictators, this media will brand him as a “warmonger.”  And you’ll see all kinds of stories trying to – in the LA Times’ words – be demagogues who use fear and dishonesty to appeal to the worst in American voters by hyping up images of nuclear war and world war three as they try to frame Trump as they’ve already done.

So he’s damned if he takes a stand; damned if he tries to use diplomacy.  Damned if he does but every damned bit as damned if he doesn’t.

And since these matters are ALWAYS and INVARIABLY subject to interpretation and perception, they will ALWAYS interpret and perceive in a way hostile to Trump and to any kind of traditional American value system.  They will ALWAYS be biased and unfair and yes, therefore dishonest.

It was the Los Angles Times that had Barack Obama dead to rights in having in their possession a video of Senator Barack Obama honoring and glorifying a rabidly anti-Israel TERRORIST propagandist named Rasheed Khalidi.  The LA Times has refused to publish the truth about Obama because it not only would have destroyed any chance whatsoever that he had of ever becoming president, but it would destroy any legacy that he still has today.  They were all too willing to release video about Donald Trump that was literally illegal to release, necessitating a run-around where the video was given by one “journalist” from one network to another “journalist” so the hit could take place with no one going to jail for it.  But when it came to Obama, it was high-gear hoity-toity self-righteous indignation about journalistic ethics.  It is literally a fact that Barack Obama spent eight cancerous years as president because the Los Angeles Times refused to have anything whatsoever to do with legitimate news.

The Lost Angeles Slimes is a fake news organization if there is such a thing.

Let’s look at some of the numbers.  In a recent study of ABC, CBS, NBC and CNN, 89% of the coverage of Donald Trump was NEGATIVE during his first hundred days as president.  In a thousand stories, with nineteen hundred minutes of total airtime, only 186 minutes could be viewed as “positive” in either content or tone.  The Washington Times declared that “It would be hard for biased, negative news coverage of President Trump to get any worse.”

I used to think that way.  Now I realize that the mainstream media can ALWAYS get worse and more biased; what they CAN’T do is get any better.  Journalists will one day scream in the hottest part of hell for their crimes against truth because they had a sacred obligation to report the truth and they instead perverted it on a daily basis.

The mainstream media has weaponized the truth.

What do I mean by that?  They will tell the unvarnished truth – if and only if the unvarnished truth at a particular moment happens to correspond to their ideological and political agenda.  Otherwise they will pervert the truth, they will adulterate the truth, they will prejudice the truth.  They will play games with the truth and manipulate the truth and massage the truth until “the truth lies.”

The truth when Obama’s stooge Hillary Clinton was running against Donald Trump is an interesting matter.  The New York Times reported the “truth” that Hillary had an 85% chance of winning the presidency on election day.  The actual reality was that she got her ass handed to her.  Before that, these same “truth-tellers” assured us that the Brexit vote would go the way the internationalists liberals wanted it to.  I wrote an article about that titled, “Brexit: Democrats, You Ought To Wake Up SCARED, Because Your Vile Failures Have Caught Up With You.”  But these people who today love so much to attack anything favorable to Trump as “fake news” had no freaking clue what the actual true news was.

I watched part of the White House Press Correspondents Dinner.  The one that President Trump blew off as a waste of time and which was rightly described as “an extended middle finger to Trump.”  Tucker Carlson pointed out that the nearly unanimous liberalism in the media amounts to as blatant a form of extremist bigotry as exist anywhere on earth today.

Even New York Times reporters are admitting that Donald Trump is FAR more tolerant of the 1st Amendment than Barack Obama ever was.  Trump is giving press briefings that Obama refused to give; whereas Obama was the worst enemy in American history of Freedom of Information Act requests, and literally labelled legitimate journalists like James Rosen and legitimate news organizations like the Associated Press as criminals so he could place them under surveillance.  And Hillary was even WORSE than Obama!

But you’d never know that listening to that White House Correspondents dinner, because while journalists are literally being assassinated in Mexico, American “journalists” are decrying the nosedive into Stalinism that Trump represents.

Even though he is measurably better in every imaginable front than Obama was or than Hillary would have been.

And you could see it coming: because when Hillary staffers told “journalists” they would have to follow along like sheep behind rope lines, they like sheep obliged.  Versus the snarling, barking, vicious, rabid wolves they become whenever they hear the name Trump.

I literally do not care what the media says anymore.

When you will only tell your biased and distorted and perverted version of “the truth” about your enemies while sheltering your friends and fellow ideological travelers, your “truth” doesn’t matter.  That’s what I mean by “weaponizing the truth.”

The same media that illegally and criminally released Donald Trump’s tax records and his horrifying slip on a hot mic for Access Hollywood have steadfastly refused to release Obama’s college records in addition to his praise for an anti-Semitic terrorist propagandist.  There is no question whatsoever that Obama filed for college as a foreign exchange student.  In his own autobiography Obama acknowledged that he was an indifferent student who had poor grades and used drugs.  How the hell did he get into the most prestigious universities in America?  Because foreign exchange students don’t have to perform the way American students do to gain admittance.  But the media didn’t want you to do that and to this day they refuse to report that.  In regards to the Access Hollywood footage, California law makes it a CRIME to do what “journalists” did by releasing a recording of someone without their knowledge or consent.  Just as it is a federal crime to do what Susan Rice did to Mike Flynn by releasing his eavesdropped conversations and it is a federal crime to release someone’s tax records.  But standards and laws don’t mean anything to these people, who know how to sidestep the law or their ethics whenever they want to sidestep them.  But at the same time somehow prevent them from reporting the truth when that truth would destroy their candidate.

Today, the Los Angeles Times has an incredibly smarmy bold-face and all-caps title to their main-page print edition article on health care: “A REPUBLICAN WIN, FOR NOW.”  Rest assured that wasn’t the same spirit this fake news outlet took when the epic Titanic disaster a.k.a. ObamaCare was passed by the same one-party vote.  I remember reading the shock of the mainstream media that for the first time, the U.S. death rate rose with that rise incredibly coincidentally coinciding with ObamaCare running like the death-panel-machine that it was always guaranteed to be.  Not only is ObamaCare not saving lives; it is actively KILLING AMERICANS.  ObamaCare premiums rose a nationwide average of 25% this year over last and the deductibles one has to pay just for the cheapest ObamaCare product are an incredibly high $6,000 with the average family enrolled in the plan paying an average of $12,393 before their ObamaCare “insurance” kicks in.  How in the ehll can anyone legitimately claim that ObamaCare provides “coverage” when it has made actual health care so expensive that people cannot actually afford it?  What do you call a health care law that creates a higher death rate?  A grotesque and frankly evil euphemistic oxymoron, is what I call it.

The ObamaCare death rate surge is a “surprise” to the same experts who month after month were astonished by the “unexpected” disappointments that occurred month after month after month in Obama’s failed economy.  Because liberal “experts” are biblical in their foolishness: “always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth.”  Because “Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools.”  That is what they are; it is what they always have been; it is what they always will remain.

When Sarah Palin RIGHTLY predicted that ObamaCare was a giant “death panel,” she was not only mocked, she was viciously and hatefully attacked for saying such an ugly “fearmongering” thing about major legislation.  That we can now document was RIGHT.  But the same Democratic Party that is inciting VIOLENT RIOTS to undermine Trump are saying even WORSE and MORE fearmongering things about the GOP legislation.  Just like when Obama was president, it was an ugly, hateful and racist thing to attack him and it was even MORE unheard of to attack his wife and his children; but now Democrats are gleefully the most vicious hate to do those very things.  And the same mainstream media that demonized those who said anything negative about Obama and family are ENCOURAGING hate against Trump and his family.

The Democrat Party comes out and lies, LIES, LIES and slanders, SLANDERS, SLANDERS.  And the mainstream media “reports” their lies and their slanders as if they were the truth.  Every intent of the GOP plan is to do the vitally important thing that ObamaCare very painfully obviously did not do: lower the actual cost of health care.  And while insurers are bailing out of ObamaCare because this demonic turd is very clearly in its death spiral, the GOP plan will both give Americans more control over their health care and create the completion that has always been the source of American marketplace success such that insurance companies can create across state lines and provide more streamlined products at lower costs whereas ObamaCare created fiefdoms.  But the same mainstream media that mocked the GOP when they RIGHTLY called out ObamaCare as a death panel are now fixing their dishonest slander-guns at the GOP plan; the same mainstream media that steadfastly refused to tell the actual TRUTH about how terrible ObamaCare was are now viciously attacking every aspect of the GOP plan.  The Democratic Party and the mainstream media that serve as their propagandists literally have blood on their hands, but that doesn’t stop them from continuing to hurt the American people as they keep sucking the life out of this nation and the citizens who inhabit it.

The stories from the media are characterizing the world as on the brink of world war three: but who put us in this dilemma?  Maybe it was Obama who disastrously set forth a “red line” that was crossed dozens and dozens of times with Obama doing NOTHING such that even Obama’s fiercest apologists such as John Kerry were forced to concede that it “cost us significantly by leading other nations to see America as WEAK.”  Maybe it was Obama who emboldened Russia by doing NOTHING when they were seizing countries and taking over the Middle East that every previous president had successfully shut them out of.  Maybe it was Obama who allowed China to militarily occupy the South China Sea – THE most commercially vital sea lane on planet earth – and allowing China to push America out and push us around.  Maybe it was Obama who did NOTHING to stop or even slow down North Korea from obtaining ballistic missiles; and maybe simultaneously it was Obama rewarding Iran for being the largest sponsor of terrorism on earth by giving them $33.6 billion to perfect their own ballistic missile technology so they could return to developing their nuclear weapons which are useless without the ballistic missile system to deliver those weapons on another country.  Maybe it’s the fact that under Obama and because of Obama, terrorist deaths rose by an eyeball-popping one-thousand, nine-hundred percent.  And yet the same media that kept allowing Obama to blame Bush for every failure are now pretending that Trump is the one who did all these things to erode American credibility, influence and power???

How can people who profess to be “intelligent” fail to understand that a “nuclear deal” that gives a rogue nation BILLIONS to develop ballistic missile technology ONLY guarantees that that rogue nation will have nuclear weapons PLUS the means to deliver them to our cities???

The mainstream media keep focusing on “Russian interference in our election.”  They fail to point out that it was OBAMA who stood back incompetently and uselessly while Russia did it, just as he did nothing all the other times they bullied Obama and pushed America around.  They also conveniently (for Obama) fail to mention that if what Russia did was wrong, then Obama needs to go to prison for doing the same damn thing to Israel that Russia did to us.  And lastly, they fail to mention that all Russia did was reveal the damn TRUTH that Hillary Clinton was a pathologically dishonest and secretive shrew who illegally installed a secret server to bypass American transparency laws under Obama’s watch.  In other words, the Russians told the American people THE TRUTH that our own dishonest fake news media refused to report until it was thrown in their faces and they were FORCED to report it.

If there is any conceivable way the mainstream media can frame a total failure as some kind of “success” when Democrats are in office, they will do so; if on the other hand there is any conceivable way they can frame an amazing success as an unmitigated failure when Republicans are running things, they will do so.  And since these stories are ALWAYS a matter of “perception” or “interpretation,” they will always perceive or interpret exactly the way their ideology prompts them to.  And so Obama presided over the worst economic “wreckovery” in American history, and the media “perceived” it to be a success; and so far Trump has added over $3 trillion to the economy in a record-short time since becoming president due to the optimism that Obama’s economy-eroding dictates would be undone, and the same media “perceives” it to be a failure.

There has NEVER been a law that made EVERYBODY happy and there never will be.  Take ObamaCare.  PLEASE, as the comic says.  There were MILLIONS of Americans who were HURT by ObamaCare from the very getgo, such as my own parents who lost their Medicare Advantage plans that Obama promised them they could keep.  But we never really saw that coverage, did we?  Just like every day when the mainstream media find “victims” of Trump’s policy to actually follow the damn LAW when it comes to ILLEGAL immigrants and do “victim” stories on how hard their lives are because Trump is so mean.  They don’t give one flying DAMN about all the Kate Steinles out there.  They simply don’t matter because the victim hurts rather than helps their ideological narrative.  Put it this way: say TrumpCare helped 97% of Americans and was by any legitimate measure an overwhelming success.  What would the media do?  They would place 97% of their coverage on the 3% who weren’t happy.  Because that’s what they do when it’s a Republican or conservative policy.  The same damn way they do the exact opposite and ignore the negatives no matter how large that negative crowd is when it’s some crap that Obama put his stamp on.

And I for one am beyond sick of the 89% rabid bias that is literally the defining characteristic of the mainstream media today.  I’m beyond sick of the unrelenting double-standard whereby it was a horrible thing to do to attack a presidents wife and children until and unless that president was named Donald and his wife was named Melania and his daughter was named Ivanka: and then it’s open-damn-season on the hate-machine from the “tolerant” crowd.

The media is on the warpath against Trump and they are taking sides and they are out to get him.  And I am ignoring them the way they ignored every single ignominious failure that characterized the entire Obama degenerate presidency.

So “report” whatever the hell you want to, media.  I know the truth about YOU and I know the truth about those whom you have been in the business of protecting for decades.  And I simply refuse to play your game where only your adversaries are to be held accountable to “the truth.”
