Once again the main stream media has been forced to retract a sensationalized story, that many on the left were hoping would ring true. This time it was ABC News’ Brian Ross, who claimed General Flynn had plead guilty to lying to the FBI, AND was prepared to testify that Donald Trump, as a presidential candidate, “directed him to make contact with the Russians.” ABC was forced to retract the statement, because it was a LIE, but not before many on the left jumped for joy to hear that President Trump had in fact colluded with the Russians.
It is an ongoing problem that is driving conservatives crazy, but something that we have become accustomed to. These kind of falsehoods are what have earned the main stream media their fitting name of “fake news”. Joy Behar of The View was so excited after reading the report that she jumped out of her seat and threw the paper she was reading from. The joke is on her now, but she is not the type who would ever admit she was wrong. These constant and purposeful attacks on our president, are only hurting the credibility of the media, and further dividing our country.
The Russia collusion story has gone nowhere when it comes to President Trump. It has been over a year now, and no evidence has surfaced to prove Trump spoke with, or met with, Russian officials during his campaign. Liberals have been chomping at the bit for any news that would substantiate their call for Trump’s impeachment, and yesterday they thought they had their smoking gun. Today they may feel a little let down, as they wake up to realize it was all a big lie. Or maybe the MSN will just run with it, and hope that their blind sheep will never realize their folly.
All eyes were on General Flynn yesterday, who was set to enter a plea, after being charged with lying to the FBI. He plead guilty in court and quickly left without a statement. The charges don’t really add up, and it is unclear why he would have lied to agents in the first place. Flynn was in fact directed to contact the Russian leader, but this came AFTER Trump was elected, when he was president elect. Flynn was also directed to contact other world leaders, such as China, Mexico, and Canada. It is standard procedure for the newly elected president to be introduced to all the leaders he will be dealing with, so there was no reason for Flynn to lie.
The New York Times and Washington Post were all abuzz with this latest revelation. They are desperate in their attempt to destroy Donald Trump, and their headlines reflect their urgency. They have no standards or codes of ethics, and only share in an agenda. Could it be that it is time to hold them to their word, and inflict hefty penalties when they deliberately give out false information?
Where was the outrage when Hillary Clinton was found to have lied under oath at least five times and then lying to the FBI? Unlike General Flynn, the FBI didn’t even record her statements so they could later be scrutinized. And instead of calling her out, the media swept her lies under the rug and allowed her to walk scott free. SHE was never charged with a crime or forced to enter a plea. It is these kind of double standards that Americans are very tired of.
President Trump has warned us of the “Deep State” he is dealing with. These are the men and women who control congress behind the scenes and make our lives so miserable. They are the “swamp” that Trump swore to drain, and they are fighting tooth and nail. They have been in power a very long time, and refuse to go down easy. Trump was never meant to win, and his victory upset their apple cart. They had taken control of the media, which meant they could control everything.
You will never hear the media tell of Trump’s successes or give him a pat on the back. Sixty six days have seen record highs on Wall Street, and our economy is finally growing. The GDP was dismal during the Obama administration, and the only record he set was being the first president in the history of time to never grow the GDP over 3%. Good paying jobs are coming back into our country, as Trump removed the tens of thousands of costly regulations placed on employers by President Obama. In less than a year ISIS has been substantially eradicated in many middle eastern regions, something Obama seemed to only enhance. Our V.A. hospitals are now being held accountable for the mistreatment of our veterans, and those who deliberately lie and deceive can finally be fired from their jobs. America is once again seen as a powerful nation and is now well respected and looked up to. For the first time in a long time, we have a man in the White House who is actually fulfilling his campaign promises. The majority of Americans put Donald Trump in charge, and the rest should sit back and accept it.
I am just an average citizen, one who loves this country and the freedoms it has to offer. I appreciate our men and women in the military, and want to express my gratitude to them for everything they give up, so that I may enjoy a life without barriers. I write, because it is the only way I know how to express what I believe to be the truth. I feel it is a duty, but it is also a great pleasure.
