Trump Accused, Tried and Convicted by One Source


Senator Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) has thus far been the sole person who attended the meeting claiming President Trump made a reference to the nations of the Caribbean nation of Haiti and African nations which were disturbing, offensive and abhorrent. President Trump himself, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, and Sens. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and David Perdue (R-Ga.) have all denied that not only did President Trump use the phrase but that nobody at the meeting made any such remarks. Senator Durbin claimed a few years back that a Republican Congressman had said to President Obama, “I cannot even stand to look at you.” Senator Durbin came out with egg on his face for that claim as not only Republican House leadership insisted that no such offense was offered and the Obama White House also backed the Republican protestations. The people who were at the meeting have claimed that Senator Durbin’s claim is false and we feel libelous as well.


What has become a circus around this issue has been the media. The media have carried Senator Durbin’s accusation front and center for a number of days now as if this was a fully backed and validated story and not a contested and likely false harassment of the President once again. The media has gone to such an extreme that they are basically calling into question Senators Cotton and Perdue as well as Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and President Trump into question accusing them of lying about the words exchanged at the meeting. The media has decided to take the side of one lone senator known for exaggeration and misquoting people for publicity while throwing two Senators known for decency and truthfulness as well as a the Homeland Security Secretary who has a clean record for trustfulness under the bus just to malign President Trump. What is so unfortunate is that most of the media have decided that there are no rules and no limitations on how far they are permitted to go just to making the President appear the boorish buffoon. Of course, this should not have really surprised anybody after the coverage received by President Obama by the media. There was nothing President Obama could do wrong and everything was absolutely wonderful under his presidency and only now has everything fallen apart. The media had even presented the record highs by the Stock Market and Wall Street as being the final result of President Obama’s economic policies. We will not even be surprised if we hear something similar to the blaming of President George W. Bush for the poor numbers economically put in by President Obama for all eight years and declarations that a two and a half percent economic increase was completely unbelievable considering what President Obama was left by President George W. Bush. Now we will probably hear that the approaching four percent gains, great news about manufacturing and lowest Hispanic and Black unemployment in years are now to be credited to President Obama and not President Trump.


The fact that President Trump eviscerated the Islamic State in both Iraq and Syria within six months has been credited to President Obama having already placed them on the run, a dream that has no relations with reality. One quote from President Obama about the Islamic State, he referred to them as Isil, was, “It will take time to eradicate a cancer like Isil. And any time we take military action, there are risks involved – especially to the servicemen and women who carry out these missions. But I want the American people to understand how this effort will be different from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. It will not involve American combat troops fighting on foreign soil.” Here is a link to the BBC quotes from President Obama for further reading. Brett McGurk, the special presidential envoy for the global coalition to defeat ISIS, in a briefing with reporters said that Trump’s strategy in the battle against the jihadist group in Iraq and Syria had “dramatically accelerated” progress in the campaign. “As you know, the campaign against Mosul is now finished and in Raqqa, which I’ll talk to in more detail, about forty-five percent of Raqqa is now cleared,” he continued. “This is due to some key changes that were put in place very early on, three changes, and initiatives from President Trump.” McGurk further iterated, “What’s really happening in Raqqa—similar to what we saw in Mosul but on a smaller scale, the ISIS fighters on the ground are using these civilians as their own shields, as their own hostages,” The procedure appears to be that everything untoward from the Obama years is to be blamed on George W. Bush and anything good coming from Trump will be credited to President Obama. The media has mostly chosen a side in national politics and they will be selling their souls and throw everyone under the bus if it will serve to make the Obama Presidency into a miracle and produce their coverage as campaigns for the Democrat Party, and even then just the furthest left of the Democrat Party.


Crazed Charges Against President Trump


There is no recourse for the citizens of the once great nation which possessed a media the envy of the world. No longer as the media has become a servant in the machinery of the leftist Democrat Party. The mainstream media carries their water and runs interference such that they clear away opposition as best as they are able. By supporting leftist political agendas, the media has now turned their front-page news stories into editorials through which they pave the path for their preferred candidate while doing all that is possible to impede any true conservative. Anybody believing that we have seen the end of the fake news being used against President Trump has not dug around much or read the news much in the past ten months. There has not been the slightest effort to try and give Donald Trump even a moment of peace. But the seething vengeance with which the media has taken on President Trump, he has still managed to take the attacks and turn them back against the media making them appear as slanted as they actually are. As President Trump fights his way through the media, the Democrat opposition, the Republican opposition with only the silent majority backing him, he will continue to win and will slowly win the begrudging support from most of the Republicans. What the media is going to do to President Trump is campaign against him opposing his every effort often feeding on propaganda and lies quoting them as solid fact despite the rest of the people at the meetings never having heard the words stated by President Trump. This episode from Senator Dick Durbin once more feeding the media with an irresistible quote allegedly made by President Trump is just one more case where the media decided to take the word of a single person against the rest of those people who attended the meeting claiming to never have heard any such statement. When a people are unable to trust the media then there comes danger of the people being misled or worse, left without a truthful force reporting the news. They will have nothing on which to base their votes. When the media breaks down, tyranny steps into the breach and the people lose their freedom. The media has President in their sights and are about to unleash the hounds of war upon him. Will President Trump crack or face this with stalwart determination defeating this media vendetta and steer the nation forward. We see President Trump cutting numerous regulations and holding taxes low. The first test of President Trump’s resolve is arriving this week over immigration, Virtually all the members of Congress have taken the view that if they are able to permit the DACA people who were brought to the United States illegally by their parents, then they can declare a victory while President Trump will be denied his wall. The Democrat and media method for gaining their victory is to repeat the calls for amnesty for the DACA illegal aliens and repeat that they promise to look into the wall after the New Year. President Trump will face difficulty being reelected. What might be worse should he lose the Congress. To prevent any chance for impeachment, President Trump will need to retain forty-one supporting Senators and two-hundred Members from the Congress.
