CNN 'nothingburger'. No nutrition but less filling.
Thursday, 29 June:
The big story today is about yet another Donald Trump tweet.
It's another attack, although devestatingly truthful and revealing, on the media. Keep in mind they are their own best audience;
they care far more about their immediate bubble than the country they speak to.
They also think themselves moral exemplars and purveyors of the truth, or at least the selective truth they find important. The biggest deal for them is their sense of sanctimony.
They really do feel that somehow they do something SO important, SO relevant that they are above any form of criticism.
Add to this the progressive's sense of entitlement and you have a potent mix for the Fourth Estate. For the last eight years they
were in complete obeisance to The One, the self styled savior of the New Order.
They thought him nifty, cool and peachy keen. Never even a tough question was thrown his way; indeed they were more than happy to paper over his sketchy past. No interest
was shown in the Rezko real estate scandal, the lockdown of college records and associates, the gay affairs and his communist mentor.
Not a peep. In fact, inquiring as to whether the man who would be president was actually a legal citizen was considered
not to be cautionary but 'racist'.
Now, even if one isn't an afficianado of the 45th president you would still have to admit that he is treated FAR differently. This isn't an argument. One network was evaluated by a Harvard study to run 93% of it's
content as opposing Trump.
That would be CNN, of course. The one that just had the worst two weeks of it's existence.
This time the target of the President's ire is the network dedicated to the tinfoil hat segment of the progressive left movement,
MSNBC. Their names are irrelevant unless you keep track of such things; suffice to say their audience is both miniscule and almost solely NY based.
Was his tweet intemperate? You bet. Was it accurate?
It was spot on, brutally honest and showed
them to be the two faced hypocrites they are. Once again, the style instead of the substance was addressed, and with all the hysteria they could muster. Some Democrats called for his resignation.
Then again they have been asking for his removal since
Inauguration Day, so nothing new there. If all of you are seeing a pattern, guess what? You're right.
The one thing that literally everyone gets wrong is the tweets. Now, most of the cries of the media to stop is because they cannot control
the message as he bypasses them via social media. That's part of it.
But even his supporters buy into the supposed random and even counterproductive statements.
What if they aren't?
Have you ever considered the best way to beat your
foe is through deceit, or a 'feint'? Let's go back to Trump and Patton. In the buildup to the Normandy invasion Eisenhower had Patton create an army out of thin air to fool the Nazis into thinking the invasion would be at Pas De Calais.
They had phony
vehicles and planes, all dummies, planted in plain sight. Patton was on location, making sure informants would see him and report back to Berlin. It's called 'deception', and it's one of Sun Tzu's first orders of war.
With Trump, the tweets are the
'shiny object'. It's what you flash to gain attention. He takes advantage of the simple fact he doesn't give a damn what the media thinks about him. So, baiting them in the most personal of terms gets their attention.
All of it, too. Then they say this
all somehow 'hurts his agenda'? But does it?
Look at what happened today. While the media masses went crazy over being called two faced mooches he got his travel ban installed, Kate's Law and the Sanctuary City laws through the House, was informed that
economic growth was adjusted upward from .07 percent to 1.2.
Sec Def Jim Mattis has prepared a plan to take out the North Koreans. Homeland Security chief John Kelly chided lawmakers during his House appearance for putting the lives of his border officers
in peril with their open border nonsense.
They have rounded up and deported almost a thousand MS-13 gang members.
The House approved health care and the Senate is close. The moment it is passed the tax reform can take place as budget reconciliation
has opened up an avenue to cut taxes and stimulate the economy.
In spite of 'Russiagate' he will meet with Putin during the G-20 affair next week.
All of this in the first six months of the presidency. If you think the opposition feels he is
accomplishing nothing think again. Their sheer panic stands as mute evidence.
It's called 'winning', and it is what the man promised. Sick of it yet?...
