The Fake Media Disgraces Itself In The Wake Of The President’s Speech

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Your fake news media in action!  – President Trump gave a 9 minute speech on the need for ramped-up border security Tuesday night, and in response, the Associated Press disgraced itself with a “report” on the speech that is so biased that it reads like the work of a 14 year-old writing for the local jr. high newspaper.

The AP report’s very first sentence claims that the President’s speech “was heavy with dark immigration rhetoric but offered little in the way of concessions or new ideas”. The word “dark” has long been one of the fake media/Democrat coalition’s favorite words to describe any proposal or language coming from any GOP president going all the way back to Ronald Reagan. It obviously polls well for them.

The third paragraph of the AP piece dutifully recites the Democrats’ top-line talking point, accusing the President of “appealing to ‘fear, not facts’ and manufacturing a border crisis for political gain.” The AP makes no attempt to analyze the accuracy – or lack thereof – of those accusations by Democrats.  Because of course it doesn’t.

The fifth paragraph is an ode to the Democrat talking points on the partial government “shutdown” which really isn’t a shutdown at all, stating that Mr. Trump “addressed the nation as the shutdown stretched through its third week, with hundreds of thousands of federal workers going without pay and some congressional Republicans growing increasingly jittery about the spreading impact of the impasse.”

Fact:  No federal employee has at this point missed a paycheck due to this “shutdown.”  Not one.

Paragraph #7 accuses the President’s re-election campaign of raising money related to the border crisis, as if that is something unusual.  Politicians of both parties regularly use major public events and crises as events to send out fundraising letters.  It happens all the time, and is hardly a newsworthy event.  The AP would have never dreamed of mentioning this during the Obama years.

Paragraphs #9, #10 and #11 recite more Democrat talking points. You can read them for yourself.

Paragraph #12 is a doozy:  “In his dire address, Trump ticked off a string of statistics and claims to make his case that there is a crisis at the border, but a number of his statements were misleading, such as saying the new trade deal with Mexico would pay for the wall, or suggesting through gruesome examples that immigrants are more likely to commit crime.”

Note the use of the word “dire”, an editorial comment that has no place in a “news” report.  Then there’s the claim that the President was “misleading” in accurately stating that the new trade deal with Mexico will in fact pay for the wall, which it will do many times over in the coming years.  That trade agreement is far more favorable to the U.S. than NAFTA, and will have a significant stimulative impact on the U.S. economy.  The AP is lying here, plain and simple.

That final passage, “suggesting through gruesome examples that immigrants are more likely to commit crime” is yet another AP lie.  An outright, intentional misleading of its audience.  First, the President NEVER claims that “immigrants” are “more likely to commit crime.”  Never.  Not one time.

President Trump does, however, claim that ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS are more likely to commit crime in the U.S., which is unarguably true, and which Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton have also correctly pointed out during their careers. The AP is fully aware of this unarguable FACT, but of course omits it from its fake reporting.

Paragraph #13 is another doozy of fake-newsery.  First sentence:  “Trump, who has long railed against illegal immigration at the border, has recently seized on humanitarian concerns to argue there is a broader crisis that can only be solved with a wall.” In fact, candidate Donald Trump “seized” on humanitarian concerns over the border crisis throughout his 2015 and 2016 presidential campaign.  Time after time after time, in dozens of campaign rallies all across the country.

Somehow, the AP missed it.  Go figure.

Second sentence: “But critics say the security risks are overblown and the administration is at least partly to blame for the humanitarian situation.” “Critics” = Democrats. More talking points, which the AP makes no attempt to analyze in the editorial fashion it reserves for Republicans.

Paragraph #14 accuses the President of using “emotional language” to describe horrific murders and rapes committed in recent years by illegal immigrants, crimes the AP has done its best to studiously ignore, like the recent murder of a California law enforcement officer by an illegal immigrant who had been given sancutary by the Democrat Party’s policies in that state.

Paragraph #15 repeats the outright deception about “immigrants” being less likely to commit crimes, leaving out the word “illegal”, which the AP knows is the true focus of the President’s concerns.

In between those last two paragraphs is a chart that shows the yearly apprehensions along our Southwest border.  This chart was published in early 2018 by the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.  It shows that border apprehensions fell dramatically during President Trump’s first year in office, as potential immigrants became discouraged at the loss of the Obama Administration’s welcoming hand. The AP dishonestly presents this as some sort of proof that there is no crisis at our border.

What the AP report studiously ignores is the well-documented reality that border apprehensions rose dramatically during 2018, as leftist groups in the U.S. ramped up their efforts to organize caravans of immigrants to assault the border. Indeed, apprehensions in May, 2018 were 400% higher than those recorded in April, 2017.

That’s a crisis.

The rest of the AP report is equally disgraceful, but I’m running out of space here.

Our reality is this: There is indeed a crisis at our Southern border. It exists due to 30 years of idiotic open borders policies enacted by a succession of globalist presidents working with pliable congresses, supported by a string of court decisions issued by lawless leftist federal judges. The result of all of that horrific policy-making and court-deciding is that, once illegal immigrants cross into our country it is now virtually impossible for our government to send them back to their home country.

The leaders of the Democrat Party love this situation – despite all of the human- and drug-trafficking and massive human misery that comes along with it – because they view these new illegal aliens as a gigantic future voting bloc. Many U.S. business interests love this situation because they enjoy the cheap labor.  It’s cynical and disgraceful and it is destroying our society.

The only way to effectively combat the situation is to prevent the waves from entering the country in the first place, because once they are here, very few are ever returning home.  The most effective way to prevent their entry is with a wall, plain and simple.

This is a crisis the Democrats and establishment Republicans have created, and it is a crisis President Trump was elected to resolve.

Our fake news media will never tell you any of this, because none of it is in the approved narrative they’ve coordinated with the Democrats in Washington.  But this is our reality, and it is simply unsustainable.

God Bless President Trump for trying to do something about it.

That is all.

The Media Beclowns Itself on the Anchor Babies Issue. What Else is New?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Well, now we know why he was transferred. –  Infamous Boston Gangster Whitey Bulger was transferred to a new, maximum security prison in Virginia on Tuesday.  There, he was beaten to death by several mob-connected inmates before 9:00 a.m. That’s some security right there.

Another media narrative epic fail. – Despite the best efforts of our fake news media to lay the blame for the fake pipe bomber solely at President Donald Trump’s feet over the last week, a new poll taken by the ultra-leftwing Huffington Post shows that only 24% of Americans believe he bears much of the blame for the incident, whatever it really turns out to have been.  On the other hand, 50% of Americans believe he bears “no blame at all” for the actions of a steroids-addled nutjob.

Which only proves that at least half of Americans still have their wits about them.

What, you thought Hollywood would actually reform itself? – Here’s how you can tell the whole #MeToo movement has had no impact whatsoever on the depraved Hollywood culture:  Currently in the works are both a major Showtime mini-series and a feature film starring Charlize Theron about the Roger Ailes scandal at Fox News, but there are zero projects in the works starring nobody about piggish big Hollywood muckety-muck Harvey Weinstein.

What does this tell us? It tells us that despite his current situation, Weinstein retains major influence in Tinseltown, and people there are still afraid to cross him. One gets the feeling that if a movie is ever made about Weinstein and his escapades, it will be cast as a light-hearted comedy starring Kevin Spacey and Meryl Streep, and produced by…wait for it…Harvey Weinstein.

And now a word from the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed:

Sometimes it really is difficult to think of China as a “civilized” society.

On this whole “birthright citizenship” thing… – Never in the history of the fake media beclowning itself have so many inhabitants of our fake media beclowned themselves as they did on Twitter yesterday over this “birthright citizenship” deal. It seemed as if every fake journalist in America felt the burning need to get on Twitter and sternly and sagely announce that President Trump’s planned executive order would never work because, and I quote, “birthright citizenship is enshrined in the Constitution!” Why, it’s almost as if they had all gotten a talking points memo from the Democrat Party or something.  Go figure.

The only problem with their joint talking point on the issue is, it isn’t true. Again, go figure.

Look, the 14th Amendment was ratified in 1868 to protect the rights of freed slaves (about 99% of whose previous “owners” happened to be Democrats, but I digress) and their progeny.  Not only did the 14th Amendment have literally nothing to do with the children of illegal immigrants, the congressional record makes it crystal clear that it was specifically intended to exclude them:

“This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to persons who are ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons.”

As I replied to one semi-conservative Texas-based journalist who had displayed rank ignorance on the subject, “There is far more involved here than the 14th Amendment. There is 150 years of case law, 150 years of congressional action, and 150 years of administrative interpretations at play as well. If you’d stop your virtue-signaling for a few minutes, you might figure that out.”

But hey, virtue-signaling to liberals is the favorite passtime of semi-conservative journalists on Twitter, so naturally that particular journalist was unable to stop.

The reality of the current government policy regarding birthright citizenship for anchor babies of illegal immigrants is that it is exactly that:  An administrative policy. It is an interpretation by past presidential administrations that has never been tested in the federal courts.

President Trump, for better or worse, apparently intends to test it, and with the new, presumably-conservative majority on the Supreme Court, he might win.  But more to the point, even an immigration dove like Sen. Lindsey Graham believes the current policy is wrong, and he announced yesterday that he plans to introduce a bill that would correct it.  “Finally, a president willing to take on this absurd policy of birthright citizenship,” Graham said in a statement. “I’ve always supported comprehensive immigration reform – and at the same time – the elimination of birthright citizenship.”

“The United States is one of two developed countries in the world who grant citizenship based on location of birth,” Graham continues, “This policy is a magnet for illegal immigration, out of the mainstream of the developed world, and needs to come to an end.”

It is a bad policy that offers perverse incentives that encourage illegal immigration. It is a policy with no true firm basis in the law, zero actual basis in our constitution, and it needs to end if we are to ever restore some semblance of order to our system of legal immigration.

Given all of that, you can expect to see journalists in Texas and nationally to continue making fools of themselves over the issue on Twitter.  They obviously can’t help themselves, and truly enjoy doing it.

It’s a clown show out there. Be careful, and vote Republican.

That is all.

A Border Miracle Based Strictly on Psychology

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Tired of winning yet?  National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd told C-SPAN Monday that the rapid downturn in illegal border crossings is “nothing short of miraculous.”   He elaborated that total recorded border crossings in 2017 are just 53% of what they were in 2016, and that percentage continues to drop each week.  As we have noted before, this has been achieved without building single foot of wall, without changes to existing statutes, without any new huge budget allocations to the Border Patrol, without the introduction of any new technology.  The one and only reason for this fall is the simple fact that we have a President of the United States who is focused on enforcing the laws already on the books.  Isn’t it amazing how simple psychology changes human behavior.
  • Meanwhile, in the aspiring third world country of California, 8 Senate Republicans broke with party leadership and voted in favor of extending that state’s job-and-business-destroying “Cap and Trade” program through the year 2030.  After the vote was taken, Assembly Republican leader Chad Mayes (R-Yucca Valley) told reporters that “California Republicans are different than national Republicans.”  Yes, they appear to be Democrats.
  • Fresh off of causing progressives’ heads to explode with its fantastic “clenched fist of truth” ad starring Dana Loesch, the National Rifle Association embarked on another snowflake-triggering exercise, this time targeting the fake journalists at the Washington Post.  In the ad, a while male (trigger) spokesman looks directly into the camera (micro-aggression) and tells the WaPo (unfair targeting) that ““Your paper’s new slogan may read Democracy Dies (trigger) in Darkness (micro-aggression). It should say Journalism Dies at the Washington Post.”  The University of Missouri is gonna need more safe spaces.
  • Speaking of entitled snowflakes, the bicycle riders of Portland, Oregon are up in arms after the leftist Democrat-dominated legislature passed a budget package that includes a $15 excise tax on the purchase of high-dollar bikes.  This move comes a year after the legislature raised the state’s gasoline tax by 10 cents/gallon, a move that prompted complaints from car owners tired of having to dodge bike-riding scofflaws in their daily commutes that bicycle-riders weren’t paying their fair share for road maintenance.  Of course, snowflakes protested the move.  BikePortland publisher Jonathan Maus called it “an unprecedented step in the wrong direction.  We are taxing the healthiest, most inexpensive, most environmentally friendly, most efficient and most economically sustainable form of transportation ever devised by the human species.”  Yes, and you are also not exempt from paying taxes.  If you can afford a $2,000 bicycle, you can also afford a $15 tax, especially given that Oregon has no sales tax.  Toughen up.
  • In other news, Senate Republicans appear to be intent upon committing political hari-kari, as the defection of two staunch conservatives, Mike Lee and Jerry Moran, ensured the death of the current legislative vehicle for reforming Obamacare in the Senate.  Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced that his strategy will now shift to a straight repeal of Obamacare, with an ensuing effort to pass a bi-partisan reform bill.  Given that almost every Senate Republican already voted in favor of a straight repeal multiple times while Obama was in office, one might think they would easily do so again.  But one would be wrong in thinking that.  There is no more dangerous and faulty assumption to make than assuming intellectual consistency from DC establishment Republicans.  It’s going to be a long, hot summer.

Just another day in milquetoast Republicans America.

That is all.
