Just when I thought the Left had no sanity left within them, one of them comes out and makes one of the most idiotic claims we’ve seen this year… and that’s really saying something.
Less than a week after ABC News’ Brian Ross reported fake news about candidate Trump ordering Michael Flynn to contact the Russians (as a reminder, he made that order after he won the presidency), CNN reported fake news that Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., received an e-mail containing sensitive material about Hillary Clinton that was discovered by Wikileaks. CNN reported that he received that e-mail on September 4th, 2016, before some of the information in that e-mail was published by Wikileaks.
But it’s since been discovered that the e-mail was sent on the 14th of September, at a time when the information within that e-mail had already been shared to the public.
That report was an obvious attack on the President and a way to fuel the “collusion” story, much like Ross’s fake news story was. And one of the funny things about it is that Manu Raju will not be punished like Brian Ross was because according to Brian Stelter: “[Raju] followed the editorial standards process. Multiple sources provided him with incorrect info.”
How is not checking the validity of the source or info considered following standard editorial process? If he got the date wrong, he either didn’t read the e-mail or didn’t read it carefully and thoroughly. Is that CNN’s standard editorial process? What am I saying, OF COURSE IT IS!
This is the fake news media, after all. If any story against Trump or Republicans can be somewhat believable, then facts schmacts! They’ll run with that story.
Regardless, we return to the topic at hand. In a segment with Brian Stelter, David Frum, a CNN contributor, said: “…I would say, the mistakes are precisely the reason the people should trust the media. Look, astronomers make mistakes all the time because science is a process of discovery of truth. Astrologers never make mistakes or at least they never own up to them, because what they are offering [is] a closed system of ideology and propaganda.”
By that logic, Weinstein raping women is precisely why they should trust and support him.
Does he not hear the stupidity that comes out of his mouth? And then there’s what he said after the ridiculous claim.
“Astronomers make mistakes all the time because science is a process of discovery of truth”. Journalists (at least today) are as much scientists as Leonardo DiCaprio or Al Gore are. Their processes aren’t about discovering the truth. They are about HIDING IT. They are about ALTERING THE TRUTH TO FIT THEIR NARRATIVES.
Although, I’m glad he says what he said about Astrologers. They “never make mistakes… because they use a closed system of ideology and propaganda.” That’s precisely what the MSM is.
Since this latest blunder, CNN has yet to apologize for delivering fake news to their audience. CNN did correct the story, but they didn’t apologize for it. They didn’t apologize to their audience for reporting fake news and they didn’t apologize to Trump Jr. for spreading misinformation that could’ve damaged his image and reputation. Then again, I wouldn’t expect them to apologize for defamation.
Returning to Frum, he wasn’t finished making his plea for winning the “Dumbest Claims Made in 2017” award. Later, he said: “The worst mistakes that press organizations have made in the coverage of Trump has precisely occurred in their effort – their overzealous effort to be fair to the President.”
You mean to tell me everything they’ve reported about the Trump-Russia collusion, the sexual assault allegations, the ridiculous claims of bigotry and their narrative that Trump’s so insane he is guaranteed to start a nuclear war with North Korea has all been IN FAVOR OF THE PRESIDENT?!
What kind of upside-down land of the missing brains world do you live in that you think the media is trying to be FAIR to Trump? Seriously, this guy, who once claimed to be Republican, is in the company of the most public serial liars so much that he himself believes the b.s. these people share. And does so with PASSION.
So much passion, in fact, that he’s gone completely insane. You HAVE to be if you fundamentally believe that the reason people should trust the fake news media is precisely BECAUSE they lie and get things wrong all the time.
I’ll be honest, I’ve been trying to follow his kind of logic. But seeing as to how I’m not a massive imbecile, I can’t follow it. Earlier, I made the comparison that, following that logic, women should trust Weinstein precisely because he rapes women. You can also say that, if you cheat on your spouse, your spouse should trust you PRECISELY because you cheated.
How anyone could honestly believe what Frum just said is beyond me. How anyone can take him seriously is beyond me.
But I’m happy and glad to see a blabbering idiot in this situation. The fact that he said something so outrageously mindless when discussing a botched story by CNN shows you the reality of the fake news media. They’re scared to the point of mindless blabbering.
Scared that they truly have lost their monopoly on news-sharing. Scared that most people in the country don’t trust them anymore. Scared that, with these latest and highly talked-about blunders by the news media, some of the people they thought would trust them no matter what may begin to question them on occasion.
To point out the obvious: No Mr. Frum, people don’t trust the fake news media because they are fake. They certainly shouldn’t and certainly don't for that reason.
The fake news media has been lying to the public long before Trump was in the picture. They’ve been exposed in recent time and their credibility is long gone. Botching stories in the manner Ross and Raju did certainly doesn’t help them.
And the best part is that they’re not going to stop. The fact that they continue lying and occasionally getting caught in the act is what helps Trump and conservatives in the long-run. Since just about everything that comes out of their mouths is a lie, they’re easily countered with facts. With the truth. With logic.
I’ve said before that if the Republicans really wanted to defeat Democrats at nearly every turn, they could. All it takes is knowing your stuff. Learning the facts. Pointing out the lies the Left tells you. And sometimes, the Left makes it rather easy to counter what they have to say, as you could see from this article.
All Republicans need to do is tell the truth, back it up with facts and point out the lies of the Left and attack them for it.
Fox News could OBLITERATE CNN, ABC and every other news source out there if their entire cast was filled with conservative truth tellers and not the occasional Never Trumper *ahem* Shepherd Smith *ahem* Chris Wallace *ahem*.
Unlike what Frum believes, people trust news sources that don’t lie. That’s why the Left is in total shambles, or at least that’s one of the reasons.
Much like with the fake news media, people just don’t trust the Left anymore… well, the majority of the people, that is. The Left’s credibility has only suffered in the last few years, but especially so this last year.
Hollywood icons people thought to be godly are proving to be anything but. The Democrat Party has no one to be their next champion like Obama was or Hillary, to some extent. And the media has been called out for their constant altering of the truth.
The Left is in shambles and they have no one to blame for it other than themselves.

You know the interesting thing about lying? You can often get caught in your own web of lies.
Sure, often times the fake news media will get away (at least publicly) with lying to people, but occasionally, they are so clearly caught in a lie that even other fake news sources have to take some notice.
ABC News’ Brian Ross was suspended for 4 weeks without pay after he “was forced to correct a bombshell on-air report about Michael Flynn”, according to CNN.
In a statement apologizing for Ross’s mistake, ABC said: “We deeply regret and apologize for the serious error we made yesterday. The reporting conveyed by Brian Ross during the special report had not been fully vetted through our editorial standard process. As a result of our continued reporting over the next several hours ultimately we determined the information was wrong and we corrected the mistake on air and online.”, adding: “It is vital we get the story right and retain the trust we have built with our audience – these are our core principles. We fell far short of that yesterday.”
Yeah, when they say that “it’s vital we get the story right”, they really mean “it’s vital we TELL the story right.”
Just so you know, Brian Ross, on Friday, cited a single anonymous source about the Flynn investigation, saying: “Michael Flynn promised ‘full cooperation to the Mueller team’ and is prepared to testify that, as a candidate, Donald Trump ‘directed him to make contact with the Russians.’”
That, understandably, made Leftists everywhere soil themselves with excitement. Unfortunately, and very hilariously, Ross was lying and had to correct his story. Trump didn’t order Flynn to do anything as a candidate. The Trump transition team, however, did order him to speak with foreign leaders. An order that is not illegal. It’s not even unconventional for an incoming administration to do that.
But because of the way Ross reported it, Leftists cheered and called for Trump to be impeached and locked up, and the Dow Jones dropped over 350 points on Friday, before recovering a decent deal.
So Ross’s story was so groundbreaking that it made the Dow Jones dropped like a bag of bricks, costing a lot of people a decent deal of money. You see, liberals, your dumb actions have consequences.
But of course, the fake news media being the fake news media, ABC News “initially attempted to downplay the mistake, referring to its correction as a ‘clarification’ on ‘World News Tonight’ and then online. After a barrage of criticism, the network changed the language online from ‘clarification’ to ‘correction’”.
So even after getting caught in their own fake news, they still tried to pretend it was no big deal.
Saying Trump, as a candidate, ordered Flynn to contact the Russians is MASSIVELY DIFFERENT from saying Trump, as president-elect, ordered Flynn to contact the Russians.
One story gets closer to finding Russian collusion and the other is a story about what usually happens during a transition between one administration and another.
One is massive breaking news and the other is simply standard procedure.
Of course, on Friday, the Left thought they were one massive step closer to impeaching Trump and convicting him. One such example comes from The View’s Joy Behar, who read aloud the false report from Ross and was celebrating the fake news along with her colleagues on that terrible show and the ignorant audience who clearly had nothing better to do that day.
Behar, visibly getting excited as she read the report, clapped and cheered at the news. Her colleague, Ana Navarro said: “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and it’s beginning to look a lot like collusion.” With Meghan McCain, daughter of John McCain, saying that the crowd reacted as though they were in Oprah, saying it was like “you get a car, and you get a car, and you get a car”, with Behar chiming in saying: “No, it’s ‘you go to jail, you go to jail, you go to jail.’”
So you can imagine the grin on my face when I saw the video of Behar apologizing to the audience for delivering the fake news herself.
Regardless, she explains to the audience that Brian Ross was wrong when he gave his report, believing it to have simply been a mistake and not intentional fake news. And you can see the disappointment on each of The View’s hostesses on seeing that their latest pathetic effort to unseat Trump has failed.
They say over and over again (with the slight exception of Meghan McCain) that this wasn’t fake news, just “wrong news” if you will. That they don’t believe Ross intended to mislead people into thinking they’ve found evidence of Russian collusion or that Trump, as a candidate, sought to collude with the Russians.
I, for one, believe he intended to mislead people. They’ve become so entrenched in their fake news stories about Russian collusion that they now believe it to be true. And Brian Ross, having also lied about the Aurora theater shooter’s affiliation with the Tea Party, clearly is eager to bust Trump for anything even remotely shady. And if he can’t find anything shady, he makes things look shady.
Like I said, there’s nothing illegal or unorthodox about an incoming administration looking to make contact with foreign leaders. That’s not shady. What would be shady is what Ross reported. A candidate making such contact with foreign leaders and governments is illegal and very shady. Which is why I’d be happy to point the Left in the direction of a little woman named Hillary Rodham Clinton.
If they’re looking for a story about a candidate colluding with foreign governments, they need not look any further than Clinton. With the Russian dossier, there’s clearly more Clinton-Russia collusion than Trump-Russia collusion. With the Uranium One deal, there’s clearly more Clinton-Russia collusion than Trump-Russia collusion.
And yet, they choose to ignore or flat out deny the truth. They are the ones who are corrupt, shady and criminals. They are the ones who constantly lie to the American people.
Take the Tax Reform bill that (thankfully) passed Senate last Friday as an example. The Left keeps saying that the bill will cost low and middle-income families a lot of money. That the bill is a scam. That it will take from the poor and regular people and give money to the rich. That’s a lie that they always tell about any Republican tax plan.
The Washington Post wrote about the tax plan, and they too say it will hurt low and middle-income families: “The JCT (Joint Committee on Taxation) found that the GOP bill would add nearly $1.5 trillion to the debt over the next decade and that, on average, families earning between $20,000 and $40,000 a year and between $200,000 to $500,000 would pay more in individual income taxes in 2023 and beyond. JCT does not explain why these families see an increase, but it is likely that it’s in part because some tax credits aimed at helping the middle class expire in 2023.”
In other words, the GOP tax plan only hurts families WHEN THE TAX CREDITS EXPIRE! JCT doesn’t need to explain why these families see an increase because IT’S PAINFULLY OBVIOUS WHY THEY WOULD SEE AN INCREASE! THEY WILL PAY MORE WHEN THE TAX CREDITS EXPIRE IN 2023!
But this is the kind of thing I’m talking about. Occasionally, the fake news media gets caught in their web of lies and is publicly mocked and called out for their lies. But there’s lies wherever you look in the media.
Trump, as a candidate, didn’t order Flynn to contact the Russians. Trump, as president-elect, did (indirectly, through his transition team, but you know what I mean).
The GOP tax plan will only hurt families when tax credits expire. There’s nothing in it that will hurt them once it passes and there’s nothing in it that indicates the rich will take money from the poor. The tax credits will expire with or without this bill.
But at least someone in the fake news media world is being punished (though given a rather small punishment) for blatantly lying to the public.

For years now, we’ve known that MSM sources are largely biased against Republicans, conservatives, Christians and now, more specifically, against Trump. So I’m not exactly surprised to see a NYT editor admit to it herself.
Project Veritas, the same people that caught a CNN producer saying that the Russia story is “largely b.s.”, are back at it again, this time secretly recording a New York Times editor: Desiree Shoe (Des for short).
The video (after a brief preview of the major parts) begins with Des Shoe explaining what her job is at the NYT. “So, I monitor breaking news, write alerts and then also like… Essentially my job right now is to curate the front pages…”, Des explained to an undercover journalist.
So, given her role, it’s clear that she has control over what the New York Times shows in their front pages. She decides what the major topic of a day’s editorial will be. This is important information to know for the future.
The video then continues with the undercover journalist mentions that during the election, the whole front page was about Trump. It would make sense that he’d be mentioned a lot, but Des explains that there’s a deeper reason as to why he would always be on the front page. “Yeah, part of it was because it was sensational, so people… But also, I think one of the things that maybe journalists were thinking about is like… Oh, if we write about him, about how insanely crazy he is and how ludicrous his policies are, then maybe people will read it and be like, oh wow, we shouldn’t vote for him.”
There it is. There. It. Is. She admits that the New York Times was trying to sway the vote from Trump by focusing on him and being biased against him. The problem with that is that not everyone that reads the New York Times is dangerously ignorant. People, when they care about something like politics and who to vote for, will do more research than to just take what the NYT says about someone and make their decision off of that. Well, most people, anyway.
If they say that Trump wants to cancel the Constitution and rename the United States to the Trump States of America, not everyone will take their word for it. Particularly now. Now, that example is clearly an exaggeration, but it’s not too far from what they would say. The media, as of late, is saying that Trump demanded that we increase our nuclear arsenal tenfold, but Trump never said that and no one on his staff heard him say something like that.
So the MSM lies and makes things up all the time, knowing that at least some of their low-information readers and viewers will believe it, simply because they think Trump is an idiot as well.
But not everyone is like that. If the New York Times slams his policies, there will be people that do their research and determine that his policies are actually great and good for the country.
So, based on that quote alone, we can see that the Mainstream Media did more to interfere in the election than Russia did. Isn’t that something?
But jokes aside, she’s essentially admitting that the New York Times isn’t about journalism, but propaganda. No different from North Korea’s news stations and Hitler’s media in the 30’s and 40’s.
And want to know what else is funny? According to Project Veritas, Des Shoe (and anyone who writes for the New York Times, basically) is in violation of Section 62 of the New York Times’ “Ethical Journalism” handbook.
Section 62 states: “Journalists have no place on the playing field of politics. Staff members are entitled to vote, but they must do nothing that might raise questions about their professional neutrality or that of The Times.”
To her credit, Des admits that The Times’ stories are “supposed to be objective”. But she also knows that “It’s very difficult in this day and age to do that.”
When asked about why that is, Des immediately goes to a subjective answer, saying: “Because when you have… When you have something like the Charlottesville story, it’s hard to portray… For instance, the President in an unbiased light when the words that are coming out of his mouth are apologetic toward white supremacists, which is what they were.”
She’s essentially answering the question of why they are biased with “because we believe the b.s. we spew out.” She truly believes that Trump was defending the neo-Nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville, even though he initially said that there was violence in the city of Charlottesville coming “from many sides”, meaning both the white supremacists AND BLM and Antifa. Even though it was a peaceful rally before BLM and Antifa showed up, anyway.
Then, three days later, he came out against the white supremacists AT THE REQUEST OF THE MEDIA and the media called him insincere. He realized he simply couldn’t win with the media, so he went back to blaming all sides involved.
And let’s not forget that anyone who speaks his mind against Leftists is considered a white supremacist by the Left. Anyone who doesn’t agree with them is a white supremacists in the Left’s collective mind.
So I’m also not surprised that she calls Trump’s actions apologetic towards white supremacists. Likewise, I’m also not surprised that she has personal hatred for the President.
The video then goes on to show Des unloading how she feels about the POTUS and VPOTUS. “I feel like Trump is a… is just a… is sort of an idiot in a lot of ways. Just an oblivious idiot.” Yeah, I’m not surprised she thinks this way. Because any idiot can become a multi-billionaire after coming back from bankruptcy and defeating a Democrat idol to become President. If he’s an idiot, that just makes Hillary look worse, because that means she LOST to an idiot.
But if Trump managed to do all of that, help a struggling U.S. economy to re-stabilize, help reduce unemployment and create over 1 million jobs in a little over half a year, pull out of a scam of a climate agreement, and push back against a communist little ball of rage while simultaneously working towards obliterating ISIS, therefore showing America’s might under a true leader, I think that’s a little much for a mere idiot to handle.
Des then goes on to speak even more ill of the Vice President. “If you impeach [Trump]… If you impeach him, then Pence becomes President, Mike Pence, who’s f**king horrible… I think maybe, possibly worse than Trump.” And the reason she gives as to why she thinks he’s horrible are both unsurprising and ridiculous. “He’s a… he’s extremely, he’s extremely, extremely religious. Extremely religious. He at one point backed a bill that hinted at conversion therapy for gay people… Which is like electrocution, stuff like that.”
Since I’m not simply going to take her word for it, I decided to do a bit of research myself. Mike Pence’s website in 2000, back when he was running to gain a seat in Congress for the 2nd congressional district of Indiana, said that federal AIDS money should be going “toward those institutions which provide assistance to those seeking to change their sexual behavior”.
And the media, with that particular set of words, spun the story as “Pence supports conversion therapy of gay people.” First, those words aren’t even there. Second, gay conversion therapy is supposed to change someone’s sexual ORIENTATION, not behavior. Behavior, in this instance, could just as easily mean someone like, oh I don’t know, Harvey Weinstein? Sexual predation is considered sexual behavior, is it not?
Furthermore, according to the Daily Caller, “Those 14 words (in Pence’s website) are the only evidence Pence’s detractors have proffered to show the man supports conversion therapy.”
So she’s also lying about Pence supporting such an immoral bill.
There’s more to the Project Veritas video about how Trump has gotten NYT subscriptions to skyrocket since the election, but I won’t get into that because this article is long enough already. Regardless, I think we can all see clearly that the media is very much anti-Trump. None of us needed a Project Veritas video to show us how bias and crooked the MSM (more specifically, the NYT) is. We’ve known they were fake news well before Trump even coined the term.
But it’s refreshing to see corruption call itself corrupt. Evil calling itself evil. An editor to the New York Times calling her employer company biased and Left-leaning. Why? Because it gives us more arrows to put in our quiver. More ammo to use against the Left.
“For it is shameful even to speak of the things they do in secret. But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible.”

Hurricane Irma is, as of the time of this article, likely heading for Florida and is projected to downgrade to a Category 4 hurricane (which is still pretty bad). Due to this, the Left is trying to make an even stronger case for climate change than they were with Harvey, given the intensity of this storm.
And recently, Rush Limbaugh has made his own comments about the storm and the reaction the media, the government and the people who are projected to be influenced have been having. The media points to climate change as quick as they can blink. The government tells people to be prepared for the worst (as they should), and the people tend to panic by filling up with more gas than they need and buying more water than might be needed, since we can’t accurately predict where Irma will hit.
Now, I’m not saying that people shouldn’t prepare themselves for the worst. But it’s pretty clear that the media and government don’t exactly help people not to panic when a storm is heading our way. Yes, we should be prepared for the storm, but we don’t have to panic over it. And, as Rush says: “These storms, once they actually hit, are never as strong as they’re reported.”
We don’t know for sure what path Irma will take. And paths are simply estimations as to what MIGHT happen if everything about the storm remains the same. But these things never stay the same. The path was different yesterday, as was the day before, and will be tomorrow. The intensity of the storm can also change as well, since a few days ago, it wasn’t as strong. Last year, Hurricane Matthew lost some of its strength when it hit a part of Florida. Not to mention the fact that the path was also different a few days prior to Matthew’s landfall.
But what do I mean by “fake news says we think Irma is fake”? I mean the media often takes things we conservatives say out of context and simply gets things wrong.
As I mentioned, Rush had made his own comments about the storm and the response people have had up to this point. So the Washington Post felt compelled to take his words to mean something entirely different. Let’s begin with the title: “Rush Limbaugh’s dangerous suggestion that Hurricane Irma is fake news.”
Now that is an eye-catching title. But titles shouldn’t be deceitful. Rush Limbaugh never suggested that the hurricane is “fake news”. It makes no sense to say that a storm which is very obviously there is fake news. It’s what the media makes of the storm that is fake news.
The media takes every single hurricane that ever happens as a sign of climate change. And that climate change is our direct responsibility and so we must elect people that will combat climate change AKA Democrats.
They politicize potential devastation for a fake cause, and that is the “fake news” part of the ordeal. So, when we expose the Left for what they are doing, they will often lie about what we say and make it sound as though we are dangerous lunatics, which explains the Washington Post’s decision to add the words “dangerous suggestion”. Even though Rush never said Irma is fake news, they make it sound as though he did.
In the story, the writer says: “How did we get from Trump’s claim that he has ‘never seen more dishonest media than, frankly, the political media’ to the idea that weather reports are phony, too?” Observing history is how we got there. Weather reports are never perfectly accurate. No one can say they are. And we are not saying that the storm is fake, as this writer claims we are in his article. We are saying that, since we can’t know for sure what will happen until it actually happens, we can’t take these weather reports to be what WILL happen.
Not to mention the fact that it’s not just the inaccuracy of the reports that we’re talking about here. We’re talking about what the media and the Left makes of storms like these. They project potential chaos and devastation and blame climate change, and then when it doesn’t happen, they still blame climate change because a storm happened in the first place.
The media and the Left SALIVATE when a hurricane forms and looks to head our way. And they are always disappointed when they don’t make landfall or there isn’t as much devastation as they predicted. The media claims that we are directly responsible for these hurricanes, even though that claim makes absolutely no sense.
Weather reports are included in fake news. But funny enough, they’re the most truthful things they report. A hurricane is making its way to the U.S. and looks like it might hit. That holds more truth than anything else the media has said in a long time. But at least they can’t claim that weather reports are 100% accurate. They KNOW they aren’t completely right when it comes to the path of a hurricane.
But the fake news part of it is when they say that it’s most likely to sweep Florida directly, when they don’t know that for sure. Due to a storm’s very nature, things are bound to change. Like I said, Matthew was projected to make landfall a lot sooner and a lot farther south than it did. The path had changed WITHIN A DAY! Not to mention that Matthew’s strength had also decreased before it made landfall.
It’s entirely possible that Irma will also lose some strength (in fact, it’s PROJECTED to lose some strength before it reaches Florida), and it’s also possible that it will change paths. It could continue heading a bit more westbound into the Gulf of Mexico (where it will hopefully die and avoid hitting Texas and Mexico) or head north earlier than predicted and miss the coast of Florida altogether (and hopefully die in the Atlantic). It could also go where the paths say it might go. Only God knows for sure.
But NO ONE can be entirely sure of the path the hurricane will take until it actually goes through. So the weather reports, while they are something to keep an eye on, they are not to be taken to be the complete truth of what will happen, particularly half a week prior to when the storm is predicted to hit.
And it doesn’t help anyone to take Rush’s comments out of context and twist them into being “bad advice”, when he is the one that makes the most sense out of these things. Not that that actually matters to the media or the Left.
They WANT people to be in panic. They WANT people to ask questions as to what to do and who is available to help. And they WANT people to think that climate change is the cause for people losing their homes in Houston after Harvey and possibly having the same thing happen with Irma. They WANT people to think that these storms could be prevented, even though logic declares that they really can’t be prevented. They WANT people to think that Republicans don’t care about what will happen to people and they WANT people to think that Democrats offer a solution to all of their problems, including how to prevent more hurricanes from forming by “fighting” climate change.
Panic is what the Left WANTS. They want people to be solely dependent on THEM. On the GOVERNMENT and on the MSM. So they don’t like it when conservatives like Rush offer people peace of mind and some logic. People like him present a threat to their dominion on public information.
Deceit is the Left’s trade. But when their deceit is exposed, they have to fight back against it and try to continue to deceive people.

If you're following the news about Trump's approval rating of 39% you would think the entire country hates Trump. In the last couple of days, even after Hurricane Harvey, the Fake News media has continued on its relentless efforts to destroy Trump.
In an article published on Saturday 8/26 CNBC says:
'Donald Trump started as the most unpopular new president in the history of modern polling. After seven months, things have only gotten worse.Plunging into undesirably uncharted territory, Trump is setting records with his dismally low approval ratings, including the lowest mark ever for a president in his first year. In fact, with four months left in the year, Trump has already spent more time under 40 percent than any other first-year president.
At 34 percent, his current approval rating is worse than former President Barack Obama's ever was.'
And CNBC is not alone. Here's LA Times:
'Trump is shedding supporters like no other president in modern history'.
Naturally, the Fake News media is doing what it's always done: produce FAKE NEWS.
For example, they fail to tell you that in less than two months, French President Macron went from 64% approval rating in June to 34% today - apparently, the beloved anti-Trump, globalist French president isn't doing so well after all.
And to be perfectly honest, even Ronald Reagan's approval rating fell to 35% in his first term...and as we all know, he was re-elected nevertheless...
In other words, assuming these polls are correct - something extremely difficult to do based on the recent history of polling that had Hillary winning the presidency - what the media isn't telling you is that by no means these polls are reflective of a President's actual performance on the job.
In fact, when it comes to performance, Trump has:
But this list is exactly the kind of news the mainstream media doesn't want you to know.
So...should we be concerned about Trump's approval rating?
What we should be concerned about is the GOP's LACK OF SUPPORT of our president.
Where's the Obamacare repeal and replace?
Where's Tax Reform?
If anybody should care about approval ratings is the GOP establishment - the Mitch McConnells of the world. Here we have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to pass a truly conservative agenda - Republicans own the WH, the House and the Senate - and yet their weakness and lack of COURAGE at this very crucial moment in our history is astonishing.
What can we, regular folks, do?
Pray, my friend - pray that God continues guiding and protecting our president and that He opens the GOP leadership's eyes and hearts to act...and do what they were elected to do.
1 Chronicles 28:20
'Then David said to Solomon his son, “Be strong and courageous and do it. Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed, for the Lord God, even my God, is with you. He will not leave you or forsake you, until all the work for the service of the house of the Lord is finished'

Can You Imagine What Trump Might Accomplish If He Didn’t Have To Fight The Establishment On A Daily Basis?
The Russia collusion narrative seems to have died down over the last several days, courtesy of a much more impactful event – Charlottesville. Both, undoubtedly, the creation of the Left. And the hysteria coming from the Left, its violence, vandalism of historic monuments combined with the abject ignorance of the past – the fact that it’s Democrats who created the Confederacy, fought the North to keep their slaves, created the first terrorist organization (the KKK) to regain power in the South and implemented Segregation – point only to one possible purpose: to violently overthrow Trump and take control of the government.
Whether or not they succeed, like they did in many other banana republics around the world, it’s entirely up to God.
But can you imagine what our president might accomplish if he didn’t have to fight the establishment on a daily basis?
So far Trump has:
Trump has been able to accomplish all of this almost single-handedly. Can you imagine what he would be able to do if Republicans in Congress cooperated? Here establishment Republicans have a once in a lifetime opportunity to really Make America Great AGAIN and be remembered as the architects of a new era of freedom and prosperity. And what do they do? They CHICKEN OUT!
I have to admit I’ve never seen such coward people in my life. From the debacle of Repeal and Replace, to an uncertain future of Trump’s Tax Reform agenda, it’s been a while since I’ve seen people so unwilling to own the responsibility to govern. They don't belong in government.
So, not only is Trump fighting the Fake News Media and the sociopaths in the Democrat Party, but he’s absolutely alone in this fight.
Can you imagine if fellow Republicans in Congress actually supported Trump?
Can you imagine if the Media actually reported the real news?
Can you imagine where the stock market would go if all of this happened?
Can you imagine how much more investment America would attract as a result?
Can you imagine how many more jobs would be created with those investments?
Can you imagine how much more you’d be able to save?
Can you imagine?
My friend, we have a good man in the White House for a change. We have a CHRISTIAN in the White House, willing to give up his fortune, his golf, risking his life…
Is Trump really alone?
No - not really. God is with him. Whether or not God agrees with Trump's plans to make America great again, we shall see. Perhaps God’s plans are to destroy America – after all, this is only our temporary home. Perhaps He wants to grow us – our character, our righteousness. And perhaps, in order to do that, America has to be lost forever.
Or perhaps He wants our attention and to make sure that we turn to Him again.
We shall see…God is in control.
All I know is I trust Jesus. His plans are better than ours.

Do you know the definition of insanity? It’s doing the same exact same thing over and over again, expecting different results. Well, given the case, you can put the Washington Post in an insane asylum because they’re trying to tell people that Trump’s base is less approving of him… again.
The Washington Post wrote an article titled: “Trump’s base is officially crumbling.” Is it March of this year, because this seems like déjà vu. They’re saying precisely what they’ve been saying FOR NEARLY A YEAR!
“The one thing President Trump has had, through thick and thin, is his base. And amid signs that it was beginning to waver, Trump assured us Monday that it was ‘stronger than ever.’ Then came more polls that drive home how untrue that is.” Really, you’re still trying to convince people that polls are truthful? That they are nearly always right?
I’ll say here what I’ve said before on the issue (at least on social media): POLLS SHOWED HILLARY AS THE LANDSLIDE WINNER FOR MONTHS BEFORE THE ELECTION! Every single poll out there fabricated by the Left had Crooked Hillary defeating Donald Trump by at least a few points. They were cocky in their confidence that Hillary would win. And they were utterly destroyed when they saw she lost.
No matter what kind of poll the Left runs, we know that it’s complete b.s. And it doesn’t help the Left in any way to try to tell us the same thing over and over again. The polls they run could tell us that only 10% of the population like Trump, and we’d still not believe them.
“A CNN poll and an Investor’s Business Daily poll… show somewhat different pictures of Trump’s overall approval.” Right, let me stop you right there, Washington Post. It’s important to note that when you start any sentence with “A CNN poll…”, you’ve already got us thinking it’s going to be utter b.s. Thanks to a Project Veritas video, we have seen a CNN employee reveal that they know the Russia thing is mostly “bull****”. And we also know that CNN is very much the mafia of the news media, given how they handled a random kid creating a gif that offended them, so when you give us a CNN poll, not many people will consider it factual.
“The CNN poll pegs (Trump’s approval numbers) at 38% - around where it’s been in other polling for a while – while the IBD poll shows it at a painfully low 32%. That’s the lowest of any high-quality poll in Trump’s entire presidency.” Another thing to note is that, if two polls are vastly different, you know something’s up. A literal 6 point difference is quite large. You really expect me to believe his numbers have dropped that much?
The story goes on to say that his numbers are declining everywhere from college-educated people, to Republicans, to white high school-educated people. The point is: they’re trying to convince us we’re abandoning Trump by the numbers.
Why? To separate Trump from his base. They said it themselves at the beginning of the article: “The one thing President Trump has had, through thick and thin, is his base.” They know that his base is all for him. And they ABHOR that! They hate the fact that Trump’s base is so strongly for him, so they write a narrative that they are not largely in favor of him.
THEY WANT TO SEPARATE TRUMP FROM HIS SUPPORTERS! The interesting thing about that tactic is that it will never actually work. It’s honestly wasted energy to write an article saying Trump’s base is abandoning him. I constantly see people on Facebook that love everything Trump has been doing and even see posts saying they don’t believe the numbers the Left gives them. WE KNOW THE LEFT IS FAKE NEWS, SO WHY WOULD WE BELIEVE THEM!
But one of my favorite quotes from this Washington Post article goes as follows: “And holding that base has been Trump’s entire political strategy, with almost everything he does alienating 60-65% of the country but aiming to rally the base…” Really, 60 to 65%? Where in the world were they on Election Day, then? 60 to 65%? That would’ve made Hillary the big winner in the election. That number would’ve coincided pretty well with the countless polls the Left would give us about the election. And yet, Hillary lost.
At this point, just about any number the Left throws at us can be considered a pile of garbage. Any number from how warm the world is getting to how many people approve of Trump’s job. Just about any number the Left shows us will be unrealistic and untrue.
The Left has yet to face this fact: no one believes them. Well, no one that is a Trump supporter or has figured out just what the Left is. Those who have figured out who the Left is know that they are a bunch of liars that will lie their way into power and will lie to get people OUT of power. At least those they don’t like. That’s been the whole point of the Russia investigation: to get Trump out of the White House that Hillary was entitled to.
I’ve literally seen Michael “Half-His-Body-Fat-In-IQ-Points” Moore say that the Supreme Court should rule “that the President is the winner of the popular vote (that being Hillary, though mostly because of California) OR the election must be held over.” And that the judicial branch should find some way to undo and re-do the election. Basically, he wants Trump to be taken out of office and Hillary placed as the President. Even though that would completely go against our country’s rules of the Vice President replacing the President, he wants it done that way.
The Left wants Trump out and one of their own in, and undermine our country’s democracy because they don’t like the result. That’s what I mean when I say “those who have figured out what the Left is.” Because that’s precisely what they are. They lie, cheat and steal to get their way and this time, they didn’t get their way. So they’ve been working tirelessly to lie, cheat and steal to finally get their way this time. They constantly lie that Russia stole the election from Hillary. They constantly lie that the world is in a climate crisis and it’s all our fault. And they constantly lie that no one likes Trump anymore.
The jig is up. No one’s buying that anymore. And not one Trump supporter will abandon him. It’s been said before, but the more the Left attacks Trump, the more attached to him we become. And the more we support him.

I’ve already written about the “meeting” Trump and Putin had at the G20 Summit. I’ve already discussed how it was a nothing-burger and made to seem like a mountain when it’s merely a molehill. Well, part of the reason it’s made to seem like a mountain is because the MSM (particularly CNN) has called this talk that the two presidents had a “secret meeting.”
Trump even called out the fake news media by tweeting: “Fake News story of secret dinner with Putin is ‘sick’. All G20 leaders, and spouses, were invited by the Chancellor of Germany. Press knew!” And: “The Fake News is becoming more and more dishonest! Even a dinner arranged for top 20 leaders in Germany is made to look sinister!”
CNN’s Chris Cillizza wrote an analysis piece challenging the president’s “fake news” accusations, saying: “No media outlet reported anything about a ‘secret dinner’… No one is making the dinner look ‘sinister’. And, no one is suggesting the media was unaware that the dinner was taking place.” Later on Twitter, he said: “Again, NO ONE is saying the meeting was private or secret. NO ONE.”
However, I can attest to the contrary. I remember having gotten a Fox News alert on my iPhone saying that Trump and Putin had held a secret meeting. And even Cillizza’s own employer, CNN, had said multiple times that the dinner and meeting were “secret”.
Brooke Baldwin, host of CNN Newsroom, “twice referred to the meeting as a ‘secret sitdown’ between Trump and Putin – and even at one point asked, “Why didn’t we (the media) know about this?”, according to Breitbart.
She also said that “These two presidents, Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, did not disclose a second meeting until now.” Yeah, you usually don’t have to disclose a random chat you have with a foreign leader, Brooke.
But she’s not the only person that contradicts Cillizza’s claim that no one called the meeting “secret”. Kate Bolduan, host of State of America, called it a “secret and second sitdown between the president and Russian president Vladimir Putin. Why wasn’t the meeting revealed? What was discussed? And who knows what was said?” And according to Breitbart, “Bolduan described the meeting a second time live on CNN as ‘secret’”.
It’s not just CNN anchors that contradict Cillizza’s claim that no one called it a “secret” meeting. Washington Post’s Aaron Blake tweeted: “Why did Trump meet secretly with Putin? Here are 3 theories.” And then proceeds to link the story he wrote.
Salon’s Matthew Rozsa also calls the meeting “secret” in his article titled: “Donald Trump defends his second, secret meeting with Vladimir Putin.”
And the Financial Times, in their “Daily Briefing”, referred to the meeting as “secret”.
Point is that EVERYONE WAS CALLING IT A SECRET MEETING! Everyone wanted this to be a story on how Trump and Putin are possibly plotting something behind the scenes and the media is left in the dark. They want people to read their headlines and think “wow, Trump and Putin had a secret meeting? That MUST mean there was collusion in the election and that Trump cheated to get elected.”
But just as I figured, this wound up being another nothing-burger. And I’ll make a prediction: EVERYTHING ON THIS MATTER WILL WIND UP AS BEING A NOTHING-BURGER! Granted, that’s an easy prediction to make, knowing what I know about the Left and their tactics and also knowing the very nature of the reason this matter even exists.
I’ve said multiple times that the only reason this matter even exists is because the Left can’t get over the fact that they were utterly REJECTED this last election, so they came up with an excuse that will lead them to nowhere.
But the focus of this article isn’t the “collusion” narrative the Left drives. Overall, it’s about the fake news that the MSM ALWAYS delivers. Every single news organization out there said that the meeting between the presidents was “secret” and that they were “unaware of it”. All it turned out to be is a one-hour chat between the two world leaders, likely to fraternize and strengthen the relationships between the countries. But the MSM treats it as though the meeting was held behind closed doors. And that the media is like Kay at the end of The Godfather, seeing “Don” Donald Trump about to do business with Putin behind closed doors.
The reality of the situation is that the two world leaders met in public and talked in public. Chris Cillizza says that no one said it was secret, but everyone around him in the media world was calling it that precisely.
I just love it when the Fake News media gets called out for what they are. Both when one particular person lies about what the media is saying and when whole networks are found to be lying to the people.
And the thing about constantly lying to your audience is that, eventually, there will be slip-ups. You’ll say something that horrendously and untimely contradicts either what you said previously, or what everyone else around you (who are also lying) is saying. And they constantly lie because they are wicked. They lie to get where they want to go and get what they want. They lie to gain power. They lie to destroy everyone who isn’t like them and doesn’t think like them.
They lie because, if they showed their true colors, no one would like them. That’s one of the reasons millennials love socialism. They’ve been told lies about it. That it’s wonderful and everyone is equal and no one has too much or too little and the government helps everyone. All of that is a LIE. Because if they told people what socialism is truly about, no one in their right mind (that isn’t in the government) would want it.

After CNN tracked down and forced the creator of a gif portraying Trump beating up the CNN logo, the internet united against them to create multiple memes and compilations of gifs that portray… well… Trump beating CNN. From the classic scene in the Karate Kid to random clips of wrestling matches, internet users spent their time to create mash-ups and compilations that are certain to make the Left (or at least CNN) completely irate.
Multiple pro-Trump content creators such as Mike Cernovich, InfoWars, Based Patriot and others spent their time to do the very thing Reddit user “HanA**holeSolo” did times 100. And the best part is that CNN can’t “mafia” their way out of this one.
Like I said in the previous article, CNN wrote a story on how they tracked down the Reddit user and forced him to apologize at the risk of having his identity be made public (an insanely dumb move on their part). And the internet took notice of this. The internet, a place where millions of people go to share, read, and watch content largely felt that the aforementioned Reddit user’s rights to freedom of speech had been violated. In retaliation, the internet proceeded to absolutely tear into CNN.
And while CNN may be able to bully an individual into silence, they can’t bully the masses into silence. They can’t track down every single person that creates these things, and even if they could, it becomes less threatening to say “we will reveal these millions of people’s identity” as opposed to “we will reveal your single identity”. When it’s a lot of people doing this stuff, CNN doesn’t have the intimidation factor. Every single person that created these gifs and compilations is darn proud of the work they did and have no problem if CNN were to try to bully them.
That’s because CNN DOESN’T HAVE ANY POWER OVER THE MASSES! You see, this goes back to the whole Fake News issue. CNN and the MSM in general no longer have a monopoly on people’s thoughts and information. With the internet superhighway being as powerful as it is with as much information as it has, cable news and large news organizations no longer have a “toll booth” of information. That is to say, they no longer are the only people that can give out information to large masses of people.
One of the reasons Trump is so popular is because he stays connected with We The People through the use of Twitter. That’s one of the advantages Trump has over Reagan. Reagan’s only means to delivering news to people was through the press and with the hopes that they wouldn’t severely twist his words. But Trump has a direct line with the people. He can call out Fake News for what they are immediately.
And Trump isn’t the only source of information out there on the internet. There are multiple conservative organizations and even Facebook, Reddit and Twitter users that have a power that people of previous generations were limited to: the power of true information. They can now find out whether what the MSM says is true or not (mostly not) and whether people in the government like Obama and Hillary are telling the truth or not (again, they mostly lie).
And when the MSM is exposed for bullying a person into silence, the internet has the power to utterly destroy the MSM. No one wants their freedom of speech taken away from them. Particularly when the reason for taking it away was simply because of a joke or having a different opinion from the Left. The internet knows this and will fight back against the Left if they have to.
But with these compilations, memes and mash-ups, it just goes to show how strong the bond between Trump and his base is. I can’t even begin to count how many different clips I’ve seen of Trump beating up the CNN logo in these mash-ups. A couple of them only last a minute and a half, while another (the InfoWars one) lasted a full 4 minutes. It’s clear that the internet is very creative and very much against what CNN did against the Reddit user they bullied into silence.
And so, they used their power of content creation to decimate CNN for their actions by showing multiple gifs of Trump “fighting and destroying” them. And it’s truly a blessing that this whole thing happened. What I mean by that is that CNN’s reputation is likely on the verge of total collapse. Yes, many people stopped trusting them for a while, but this is a whole different thing. What CNN did was a clear violation of a citizen’s first amendment rights, and millions of people didn’t like that.
Last month, they were exposed by Project Veritas as b.s.-ing the country with the Russia narrative. And in less than a week into July, an even bigger scandal breaks out about CNN. This might set them on the path to irrelevance and maybe even bankruptcy. If people don’t like CNN, don’t watch it and think they are nothing but bullies, CNN is in massive trouble. And the most ironic part of it all is the fact that that’s a Leftist tactic: destroy the reputation of your opponent and separate them from their base. They’ve been trying this on Trump since the campaign began, but now, CNN might just fall victim to their own tactics. To their own weapons.
God knows precisely what He’s doing. He’s using evil’s own weapons against them to defeat them. He knows what CNN’s destiny is. He knows whether this will be the beginning of the end for them or if they will somehow manage to come back from this and own the narrative once again. He will use this time to bring people closer to Him and He will use the internet to achieve that.
Remember: God is in control. Nothing is a surprise to Him. He knew what CNN was going to do to that Reddit user and He knew the backlash they would receive from their actions.

This past weekend, the president met with Saudi King Salman. While there, the president and king managed to reach a deal that would help the U.S. economically, having sold $110B worth of weapons, and would help Saudi Arabia in their fight against terrorism and the threat of Iran. Due to that deal, King Salman awarded the president with the kingdom’s highest medal of honor award for his efforts to “strengthen the relationship between the two friendly countries” and continuing to “enhance security and peace.”
It’s clear here that the king of Saudi Arabia and the Saudis in general are showing far more respect to Trump than they ever did to Obama. Of course, I don’t blame them for showing less respect to Obama. The former president made sure to BOW to the king, a sign of weakness and submission. A sign that warrants no respect from anyone.
Even Trump said on Twitter back in 2012 “Barack Obama bowed to the Saudi King in public – yet the Dems are questioning Mitt Romney’s diplomatic skills.” While I’ll ignore the part about the 'never-trumper'/traitor’s questioned diplomatic skills, we have to acknowledge the fact that Obama’s bowing to the Saudi king is a sign of poor diplomatic skills. And the media hasn’t forgotten about that either (though, they largely tried to ignore it at the time).
The media, being the biggest source of fake news around, said that Trump is being hypocritical for bowing to King Salman upon receiving the aforementioned medal of honor. I gotta tell you, this is the easiest story to swat back at them. Largely due to the fact that Trump is significantly taller than King Salman, so in order to help the king give him the award, he had to bend over a bit to receive the honor. But the media wants a negative story on Trump so badly that they are scraping the bottom of the barrel and pretty much nitpicking at things the president does.
But here’s the thing: the media can't come up with any negative stories (at least, ones that stick). The media had been touting how Trump is a massive fool and would destroy relations with any country he meets with. The president has even taken action, having signed a deal that would be mutually beneficial, and yet, the media can’t spin anything against Trump? Why is that?
It’s because, while Trump is here at home, doing things to help this country, the media can spin them as disastrous. They can say that the vast majority of people want Trump impeached or never wanted him in the White House to begin with. But they can’t put words into another country’s mouths. They can’t claim that the Saudi king or people think anything badly of the president. Their own media get to decide what is said, and the Saudis largely LOVED having the president over. And it’s not just the president that accomplished things there, the First Lady and Ivanka Trump accompanied the president on this trip and made strides to help women in the kingdom. Granted, this being a Muslim country, I don’t know how far these efforts will get, but the two were certainly well received by the female population of the country.
The media in the U.S. wish to nitpick every little thing that occurs on this trip. And that’s all they’ve managed to do. The Washington Post wrote a story on how Trump’s trip to Saudi Arabia is “bizarre and un-American”. Here are some of the points they’ve nitpicked on:
Firstly, while it is true that previous presidents usually have their first trip abroad to either of America’s neighbors (Canada or Mexico), Trump doesn’t want to waste time. He wants to ensure that terrorism is dealt with altogether and relations between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia are strengthened.
Secondly, while Saudi Arabia is ok with some Islamist extremists (of course they are, they themselves are Muslim), they hate Iran and the terrorist organizations Iran funds..
Thirdly, the “sword dance” is, like I explained, a dance to commemorate the beginning of a notable occasion. The one in this case would be the strengthening of relations between our two countries. And while it is male only, it’s a part of their culture. A larger point being: since when does the Left have any complaints about Muslim tradition and culture?! Which leads me to my next point of emphasis:
Fourth, why would the media complain about Ivanka trying to help women in Saudi Arabia become entrepreneurs? Granted, this being a Muslim country, women hardly have any rights. Even the Washington Post points out that women can’t show their faces or “travel without the permission of male guardians.” But to repeat myself: Since when does the Left or the media altogether care about women in the Middle East? They didn’t complain when Obama went there. In fact, they made sure to avoid talking about that at all while Obama was there. So why care now?
Fifth, why is Tillerson talking about human rights in Iran considered a bad thing? All the media had to say about it is that it’s hypocritical. Even though it’s the Left that promotes gay rights here in the U.S. but flat out ignores the fact that gay people are horrendously tortured and killed simply for their sexual orientation. Talk about hypocrisy.
Lastly, of course Tillerson won’t allow the U.S. media in the press conference. The media is full of LIARS! They will attempt to make a mockery of Tillerson in such a conference and disrupt what the president is trying to accomplish in the region.
And finally, here’s my main point: Trump in a single trip has managed to accomplish more for this country than Obama did in 8 years. I’m not just talking about making the country $110B richer from one deal. I’m also talking about one of the things Trump promised during the campaign trail: that America would be respected again. He’s certainly making strides to accomplishing just that, and for that, we must truly be thankful to God that we don’t have Hillary as president and that we no longer have Obama as president either.
