The stories the press missed

In 2016, every national reporter missed the presidential election story. They all thought the story was that America would elect its first girl president after electing 44 boy presidents.

The real story was an amateur running for office for the first time with a ragtag army headed by a former beauty queen defeated a billion dollar political machine.

Oh, a few regional reporters understood the full fury and despair in flyover country, most notably Salena Zito. But national journalists are pack animals who would rather impress their colleagues than inform the public.

They see themselves as experts on national politics -- and they blew the one national election we hold every four years.

Six months later, they blew it again.

On March 4, 2017, President Donald John Trump gifted reporters with the Mother of all Watergates.
Instead of following the tip which would have lead directly to Obama abusing national intelligence resources to spy on political opponents, the national reporters mocked President Trump.
Even today they will not bring themselves to admit that Obama spied in a manner worse than anything Nixon imagined.

Two years later -- after the Mueller Report exonerated President Trump -- national reporters missed a third story: Democrats are still spying on Donald Trump.

Democrats planted a Democrat CIA agent in the White House who snooped on the president. He found out about a July 25 phone call to the president of Ukraine. The spy contacted Adam Schiff. They concocted a cover story that the spy was a whistle blower, and used the spy's lies to set an impeachment in motion.

The media has sided with the seditious would-be usurpers.

My hope is that an impeachment trial will get the truth out to the American people. It is for sure that America's national reporters are too incompetent to handle the truth because the big story is our federal government is out of control.

Chuck Schumer told Rachel Maddow with glee shortly before Donald Trump took office, “Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community — they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.”

We have the tail wagging the dog.

Bloomberg News reported, "President Donald Trump has ordered a substantial reduction in the staff of the National Security Council, according to five people familiar with the plans, as the White House confronts an impeachment inquiry touched off by a whistle-blower complaint related to the agency’s work.

"Some of the people described the staff cuts as part of a White House effort to make its foreign policy arm leaner under new National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien.

"The request to limit the size of the NSC staff was conveyed to senior agency officials by acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney and O’Brien this week. The whistle-blower complaint, focused on Trump’s conduct in a July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, has been followed by damaging reports on the president’s private conversations with other world leaders.

"The New York Times has reported that the whistle-blower was a CIA officer who was at one point detailed to the White House. The complaint has become the driving motivation behind House Democrats’ impeachment effort, which House Speaker Nancy Pelosi began last week.

"Two of the people familiar with the decision to shrink the NSC insisted it was largely rooted in both the transition to O’Brien’s leadership as well as Trump’s desire to increase efficiency at the agency, which grew under former President Barack Obama. About 310 people currently work at the NSC."


If Canada or any other nation spied on the president the way Democrats have, we would deport their staffs overnight.

Sadly for us, no other country will take our Democrats so we are stuck with them.

The president runs the government, not the other way around. The last four may have liked letting the bureaucracy just run things but this one does not because the bureaucracy ran the country into the ground. This was why we elected Donald Trump president.


  1. So, now, we have a 2nd "whistle-blower" Is this called a "two trick pony"???

    1. 2 on the Ukraine and 1 from the IRS. Yea, the same IRS that went after the conservative NGOs and no one was prosecuted.

  2. How do you get a 2nd whistleblower to report on a conversation for which the transcript has already been released?
    We've entered Bizarro Land

    1. No different than the Christine Floozy Ford wannabes recruited by Avenatti and Lisa Bloom.

    2. And where are the prosecutions of those admitted liars.

    3. There are still many half assed, pissy not quite MAGA around.

      They are the ones who are still stuck in their rut of "Trump could do, so why ain't he?" as cracks.

      Stop looking at the shitstains.

      Stop obsessing about the shitstains.

      Start being not half assed MAGA.


      Full speed ahead MAGA.

      ALL elected Branches.

      Senate & House + Executive.

      ALL Sovereign States are included.

      The purgings and bringing to Justice of the shitstains can wait until AFTER Mega MAGA is achieved.

      THEN will the lamentngs of the guilty shitstains be commencing.

      All the debating masturbating any and everywhere won't produce the Just results that Mega MAGA will.

      MAGA 2020

  3. national journalists are pack animals who would rather impress their colleagues than inform the public.

    You can say that about all Lefties.

  4. And as an added bonus Trump made a couple of tweets about my worthless turncoat Senator. Nice to know that next week will be Romneys "turn in the barrel". Anxiously awaiting Burr and Sasse's turn. And then Lee at a later date.

  5. Trump is pointing to deeper corruption regarding kickbacks to countries receiving money taken from you and given to the foreign countries in the form of aid.

    The Ukraine may be the canary. From the poorest country in Europe (but receiving billions in US aid voted by Congress) Biden's son got $8 million. Hillary got $10 billion. Nancy Pelosi's son was a paid board member of a Ukrainian gas company; Romney's national security advisor took Hunter Biden's place on Burisma board; Adam Schiff had 2 fundraisers by a major Ukrainian arms dealer.

    Who got (and is getting) kickbacks from US aid to Central American countries & Mexico? Who was getting a cut of the $150 billion Obama gave terror sponsor Iran?

    How is it that 'life long public servant' - and low IQ Democrats are now the wealthiest members of Congress?

    1. The width and breadth of this is mind boggling and pisses me off.

  6. Hillary got $10 MILLION, not billion. A million here, a million there. Pretty soon it adds up.

  7. MAGA is the beginning of the ending of politicians defining their cravings to rule over the electorate being government's purpose.

    To be "governed BY" is to be "ruled By".

    MAGA is the gradual process of the electorate compelling "politicians" to govern FOR the electorate.

    The MAGA Train is just beginning to gain speed now.

    Wake the fuck up.

    See that we, the electorate, have allowed ourselves for generations to be "governed by" politicians and, thus, accepted being "ruled by" them.

    MAGA is as woke as woke can be.

    Those craving to be ruled by can move to fucking commie china, and can eat the babies there, when they are allowed to by their chosen rulers.


  8. Don makes a good point. Why isn't the media investigating the mother of all watergates? POTUS has slapped them in the face with it, but there's zero or negative coverage on the recent spying or FISA abuse. Further, the media could make a mint off of covering it. After demonstrating over and over again that they're totally cool with reporting things that are later found to be bogus - they take a pass on reporting the espionage against Trump. It doesn't make financial, professional or patriotic sense. There's something afoot here and it's not just political bias or a dislike of Trump.

    1. How far behind of MAGA awareness are you?

      The msm is making a mint now.

      The msm considers MAGA a mere bump in the road tomthe uniparty dominanation of our nation.

      The msm is not, nor has been for longer then living memory can speak of, true seekers of the truth.

      The msm has always been the whores of politicians.

      The politicians have always considered the electorate to be the fools they need to fool just enough of and at just the right time.

      Get up to speed, chollo!!!

  9. the dems don't drive the media.

    the media drives them.

    and they're too young, too conceited, and too wet behind the ears to see the cliff ahead.

    like lemmings. lets not put warning signs up for the little rats. big sign.

    get your selfies here.

  10. Why does the news media act the way they do?

    Simple answer: Because the people who own the news media want them to act that way.

  11. One of Don Surber's very best columns.
