New meme, same failure for the media

Remember my post in which I replied to Dan Rather's claim that last week was the wildest week in his 4,500-week lifetime?

I said wait till next week. Well, next week is here and I was right. As if there were a doubt.
Ohio University graduate and politico Colton Henson pointed out on Twitter that after last week's Comey impeachment story disintegrated, the media pushed this week's impeachable offense -- at least in the eyes of Marxist journalists -- that President Trump leaked state secrets to the Russians, an impeachable offense, which is the Holy Grail of Washington journalism when a Republican is president.

Unfortunately, after the Washington Post broke the story, H.R. McMaster, the national security adviser, told the press:
“I was in the room, it didn’t happen.”
Nevertheless, the Washington Post had reported:
President Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting last week, according to current and former U.S. officials, who said Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State. 
The information the president relayed had been provided by a U.S. partner through an intelligence-sharing arrangement considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the U.S. government, officials said. 
The partner had not given the United States permission to share the material with Russia, and officials said Trump’s decision to do so endangers cooperation from an ally that has access to the inner workings of the Islamic State. After Trump’s meeting, senior White House officials took steps to contain the damage, placing calls to the CIA and the National Security Agency.
The story quoted only one person at the meeting by name: H.R. McMaster, the national security adviser. He told the Post:
“The president and the foreign minister reviewed common threats from terrorist organizations to include threats to aviation. At no time were any intelligence sources or methods discussed, and no military operations were disclosed that were not already known publicly.”
The Post tried to split hairs and pretended it was a non-denial denial, which led to the post-publication bombshell by H.R. McMaster:
“I was in the room, it didn’t happen.”
And Politico carried on as if the Post story had not been refuted.

From Politico:
Trump's handling of classified info brings new chaos to White House
‘It never stops,’ one White House official said after reports emerged about Trump disclosing highly sensitive information to the Russians.
Reports emerge, daily, from far left extremist liars, and pretty lousy Marxist liars at that.

Democrats think they can keep this up for eight years. I don't think so. They are not dealing with a Bush or a Romney.




On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"

Now read the book that explains how and why the press missed this historic the election.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.


And then read the original, "Trump the Press," which chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback

Autographed copies of both books are available by writing me at DonSurber@GMail.com

  2. I propose the Interior Department establish rules and regulations about taking journalists and establish a fair bounty. Since they outnumber and are more annoying than coyotes the bounty should be 3X the going rate because the carcass disposal would be tougher since there is no fur market for journalist pelts. I don't think we need a season or bag limit restrictions until the gene pool is restored to it's previous health. If a season or bag limits are deemed necessary, CNN and New York Times reporters should be classed as exotics so the can be taken at any time of the year. Possibly a large fee should be charged for the exotics because of their wide spread popularity both with hunters and taxidermists. I'm almost certain that MSNBC will demand to be classed as exotics because they are not very bright. Every possible effort to accommodate them should be undertaken even if it means a national letter writing campaign. The USPS will need the additional income as they will be charged with paying all bounties in cash. Forever stamps are a no no.

    1. I would prefer the hunting regulations pertaining to vermin, because that's what they are. Shoot on sight and don't worry about carcass disposal. Scavengers gotta eat, too. And also, "Pour encourager les autres." - Elric

  3. The Progs in general and MSM in particular appear to be going through that last stage before drowning, when the body flails around in one last desperate effort to stay afloat before heading down to Davy Jones' Locker. I'll toss them a Life Saver - cherry, my favorite kind - as I bid them adieu.

  4. I can't help but think that Bezos has gotten into this struggle in a personal way, seeking to establish himself as not only the richest but most powerful man in the world, using the First A as his weapon of choice. He is popular now among his political allies and his lowly press servants but allowing such arbitrary power to go unchecked may prove the undoing of even them. How many other unelected rich men will want to follow his fetid actions or wish to prove themselves superior by worse example? This recent attempt to ruin by pure lie is really no longer casual entertainment or profit taking by click. It is wartime propaganda, a kind of treason since it is internally generated. It should be taken seriously by all men of good faith and roundly resisted. Nor should its creator be allowed to hide safely inside his fortress of gold protected by his legion of share holders. I hope Trump does not let this pass.

    1. I hope anti-trust actions are started soon against Amazon and Google. Let them fear a weaponized government like we've had to!

  5. Trump: “As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety."
    The meeting was not open, it was behind closed doors - fine by me except for fact that a Russian diplomat was taking pictures and posting them to social media.
    And what kind of intelligence did Russia share with Trump?
    Putin shows the world once again that Trump has no stones. Obviously Putin is not done toying with Trump. Sadly, he's probably just getting started.

    2. He's worried about another man's "stones", TG. I bet he doesn't spend a whole lot of time thinking about anything else.

    3. So Trump shares top secret information from Israel with Russia. Wonder how Israel feels about that? Hillary does something similar and Trump leads the chorus of "lock her up" ... and then goes back on his word and lets her off the hook once he is elected. Pot meet kettle.
      Tea - just when I think your replies couldn't be any more sophomoric ... you prove the depths of your shallowness are near-endless.
