How Trump trolled them



On Monday, I wondered how the Babylon Bee would top the hysteric media reaction to the triple murder-suicide by Baghdadi. It is hard to satirize the Washington Post's obituary, which called the psychotic sadist an austere religious scholar.

But the Bee was up to the task.

It took 15 words.

The Bee merely reported the situation straight: "Trump Gets Dems To Interrupt Baseball, Condemn Dogs, Side With Terrorists All Within 24 Hours."

That and three pictures were its entire post because how he did it is so obvious to Trumpologists by now.

President Donald John Trump understands the media better than anyone. He knows that media adulation is all his political opponents seek. (I mean besides money and sweetheart deals for their wives, sons, and others.)

He cut his teeth in the toughest media market in the world, New York City. Back in the 1980s he battled George Steinbrenner for the sports front pages of the tabloids, and regularly won. The downside was having to live through a divorce that was a daily media circus for months.

As unpleasant as the Divorce of the Century was, it taught him to cope. The Mueller investigation was a piece of cake compared to dealing with the ravenous cannibals of the Fourth Estate in NYC -- and I mean that as a compliment to the press.

To Donald Trump, the Washington press corps is a backwaters operation. They couldn't even uncover John Edwards' affair -- even as his love child traveled with the campaign. It took the National Enquirer to break the story. Come on. They were not even trying.

This story began on Friday with a seemingly minor story at Fox News, "Trump says he plans to attend Game 5 of World Series, if it goes that far."

He had authorized a secret and dangerous mission. He was so sure of its success that he booked a loge at Washington's first World Series since 1933.

On Saturday night, he tweeted.
Security may have required opaqueness, but considering the reaction from the DC press corps, I doubt it.
This Joan Walsh is a reporter for CNN. It took her 7 minutes to beclown herself.

The next morning he briefed the nation.
President Trump's language was blunt and graphic, aimed at bonding with the middle class. But he threw in a few words aimed at the prissy press.

The president said, "No U.S. personnel were lost in the operation, while a large number of Baghdadi’s fighters and companions were killed with him. He died after running into a dead-end tunnel, whimpering and crying and screaming. The compound had been cleared by this time, with people either surrendering or being shot and killed. Eleven young children were moved out of the house un-injured. The only ones remaining were Baghdadi in the tunnel, who had dragged three children with him to certain death. He reached the end of the tunnel, as our dogs chased him down. He ignited his vest, killing himself and the three children. His body was mutilated by the blast, but test results gave certain and positive identification."

Obama was not told of the raid until everyone else was. He used surrogates to attack President Trump.

Susan Rice went on CBS and said, "Since the White House seemingly didn’t feel it necessary to inform the leadership of the intelligence committees on a bipartisan basis, I’m quite confident that they didn’t do the normal protocol with respect to predecessors either."

But Rice was not sure whether Obama informed Bush about Osama.

James Clapper went on CNN and said, "What is going to be interesting is to the extent to which this negatively affects ISIS or does it galvanize ISIS, the remnants of ISIS, which still survives as an ideology and has franchises in other places besides Syria."

And he said, "ISIS is more than just Baghdadi, as important as he was. 14,000 to 18,000 fighters yet remaining and the franchise are branches in other places — notably, Afghanistan where of course we still have forces. ISIS did participate in losing leadership. So they decentralized and groomed people to assume the role. Now I don’t know that they have anybody would have the symbolic importance of Baghdadi, but I don’t think we can say at this point that we can stop worrying about ISIS."

The next day, U.S. forces killed Baghdadi's successor.

This was weak tea but that was all they had because President Trump specifically refused to give them a head's up. Instead of praising the president and the military, Obama and company attacked the operation.

On May 2, 2011, Donald John Trump said in a statement, "I want to personally congratulate President Obama and the men [and] women of the Armed Forces for a job very well done. I am so proud to see Americans standing shoulder to shoulder, waving the American flag in celebration of this great victory.

"We should spend the next several days not debating party politics, but in remembrance of those who lost their lives on 9/11 and those fighting for our freedom. God Bless America."

Obama's silence is childish -- that of a boy, not a man. History will laugh and shake its head at his election and re-election.

President Trump's language drew the ire of the press. Once again, he got them to mock him, which actually delivered his message again. For example, CNN reported, "Trump claimed ISIS leader 'whimpered' in final moments. Top officials don't know where he got that detail."

He has a habit of misspelling and misstating that draws fact checks that conveniently help him. It happens too often not to be planned at least occasionally.

On Sunday night, he attended a ballgame and drew boos. The lobbyists, deep staters and media in the crowd may have felt good by booing, but now the nation's capital is seen as a place where politics means more than a military triumph.

Finally, on Monday, he outed the dog of war who cornered Baghdadi.
That drew alarm about releasing classified material from a press corps that regularly publishes classified information.

The president is well-versed in Sun Tzu. One favorite passage is, If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle."

The press and the rest of the Democrats do not know him. They believe they are still battling Bush-McCain-Romney.

They also believe that based on the 2016 results and polls that he does not have a solid majority.

A year before his re-election, the press believed the same about Nixon. The next year he became the first president to carry 49 states.

    1. The indoctrination cabal has been very successful these past 50+ years.

      They have sold their scam of "college bound curriculums for everybody!!!" for their own indoctrination cabal purposes.

      Thus, we have been scammed.

      What the indoctrination cabal fears most is the following evolution occuring in actual education:

      1. K - 5th grades = solid Three R's = To Read, To Write, To Do the Math.

      2. This leads to 6th - 8th grade = Thinking, Calculating, Considering, Comparing, Understanding, Learning How to Learn. And beginning to Grow the Fuck Up.

      3. 9th & 10th grades become the determiner times for each student to define their own, individual talents, propensities, native skills and capabilities, discovering their soon adulthood qualities.

      4. Which then determines which, of two general paths, each is both most suited to and, as budding adults, chooses to travel: Skilled Tradecrafts or Professions most requiring boo coo knowledge.

      5. Thus, grades 11 & 12 are practical prep years for each of either one of these two primary choices. Practical prepartions. Hands and Brains on for Skilled Tradecrafts. Brains on for boo coo Professions.

      6. College level then becomes fullboat Skilled Tradecrafts or full boat Professions' required knowledge.

      7. The quantities of sub categories of these two Prime categories is abundant. Each individual student, budding adult, chooses best choice for his/her native abilities, talents, propensities, capabilities, etc. The end of "required" subjects not relevant to chosen future adult education path. Also the elimination of indoctrination cabal bullshit.

      The above removes the indoctrination cabal's scam from our nation's education of our future.

      The above restores our nation's education to be for our nation's future, not as it is now, for the benefitsbof the scammers of the indoctrination cabal.

      MAGA shows the way.

    3. We’ve ‘opted out’ of conventional public schools for the grandchildren that are our charges - and instead have them enrolled in a local Charter School, based on the Classical Education model. In short - it’s a return to a sane educational model that covers items #1 and #2. Unfortunately, the school only covers K thru grade 8.

      They’re working on trying to start a “high school”, but I don’t know if it’ll be ready by the time my scholars (who are in K and 3rd) will need it.

      The current alternatives 5 years from now are private schools, or homeschooling - both are currently priced out of my reach (either $ or time).

      I’m working with the schools board of trustees on the ‘upper’ school formation, but forming a secondary school is much harder than a primary - due to state regulations....

    4. The following are the basis for all education faults fabricated by the indoctrination cabals:

      1. Control, by defining, all requirements to result in "credentialing", aka "authority granted certifications".

      2. Control government(s) defintions of same, thus resulting in government(s), being imposible law makers, controlling content of indoctrinations, disguised as education.

      3. Imbue, for generations now, the presumption that all "education" must, by both law, required credentialing and accepted superiority to every other possible means of learning anything, be limited, via submission to "authorities so defined by indoctrination cabal", as the prime default.

      4. Sell, as in convince to buy, the default acceptance that all authorized credentials are positive proof of thorough mastery of subject(s) so credentialed. The concept of this is so obviously flawed as to have become oblivious to those so sold on it. The prime result of the scam is for those scammed to believe they have not been scammed in any manner whatsoever.

      5. Weave into all actual education subjects whatever indoctrination scam content can be duplicitously woven therein and, like the frog in the pot of lukewarm water, the marks will remain accepting this until well boiled and ready for slicing.



      The internet, digital form of information, now developed to an amazing capability of communicating information, is the crack in the indoctrination cabal concoction of superiority.

      Digital provides the visible and the audible.

      To see, to read, to view video, to hear and listen to audio, to, in sum, have at your fingertips all that is needed to learn. Minus the bad breath of an "instructor's" presence.

      "Teachers" do not actually "teach".

      Students learn.

      Teachers help students to learn.

      Parents, aka guardians, of students help students to learn.

      Students learn what each is most curious and interested in learning about.

      The indoctrination cabal is all about controlling the learning of everything, by everybody, for it's own purpose, which is never defined by the indoctrination cabal as the best possible help to the students.

      We have, via the digital, the opportunity to be the trustworthy guardians of our future generations.

      The seperating of chaff from wheat is our task.

      The indoctrination cabal is the chaff.

      Our future generations are the wheat.

      Curiosity and interest, via purpose or attractive subject, are the motivation of those who want to know.

      The currently totally accepted as gospel indoctrination cabal schemes are toxic to the natural motivations of human nature.

      MAGA embodies the best in human nature.

      Restoring education to being helpful to learning is a long road, given the indoctrination cabal success these past 50+ years.

      The digital provides the means.

      The students, our future, provide the motivation.

      We, MAGA all, provide the reality of doing what our future generations need us to do.

    Did he intend to lie about the Ukrainian call summary? I suppose a child being potty trained who soils his pants is trolling his/her parents? The summary was not a "transcript". The ellipses didn't indicate redactions for security, but rather redactions for politics.

    4. Troll Goals 101:

      A troll without a goal is still a troll.

      A troll without multiple goals is a troll most droll.

      A troll with multiple confusing and conflicting goals is a troll on the dole with nothing else to do but troll.

      A troll with specific, contemporously changing goals, is a mole. On task, occasionally on time, never effective yet it's pay remains the same.

      A troll quotes as a troll sees fit to quote, never paying the toll of truth, always debiting the lie, thus, a debt hoarder.


      What would a troll do, if a troll could not troll?

      What does anyone do when anyone cannot do what is most native in anyone's nature?

  4. Funniest (or saddest) part of who wasn't told of the al-Baghdadi operation Chief of Staff Mick "It was Quid Pro Quo" Mulvaney. Notice Mick wasn't in the staged photo.

    "... the press believed the same about Nixon. The next year he became the first president to carry 49 states."

    Yep, Trump is following in Nixon's same impeachments steps. Only difference, it will occur before Trump even has a chance to run for a second term.

    Hey FLOlson - Jump!!

    Lots of LOL tidbits in post but my fave two are:
    "... The downside was having to live through a divorce that was a daily media circus for months." Maybe it wouldn't have been a daily media circus if he wasn't publicly flaunting his affair with Marla Maples.

  6. "Normal protocol" is done so that those informed can appear to be still relevant when they have not need to know of the operation. Why would Trump care if they appear relevant when the media rush to these "insiders" for a disparaging word to quote.

    Not to mention, OPSEC given how many have demonstrated their willingness to release classified information if they feel it will hurt Trump. And they would have salivated at attacking Trump had this raid turned up empty or in a disaster.

    And the imagery of people who could afford $1000 tickets to a baseball game, mostly from the capitol region, booing the man sent by hardworking people to be a thorn in their side. Priceless.

    --Fast and Furious
    --NSA spying on foreign leaders
    --The General David Petraeus sex scandal
    --The IRS’s targeting of conservative groups
    --The Justice Department’s wiretapping of AP and Fox News reporters
    --The Department of Veterans’ Affairs healthcare ‘waiting list’ scandal
    --The Unauthorized Air Force One photo-op over NYC in April '09.
