You all know the “Very fine people” hoax the media created after Charlottesville. In a press conference at Trump Tower shortly after the riot, President Trump condemned the Neo-Nazis, white supremacists and Antifa radicals for the violence. But he also pointed out that among those protesting the removal of the Confederate statues were very fine people who just didn’t want these statues taken down.
The news media wasted no time refashioning what Trump said in order to claim that “Trump called Nazis and white supremacists very fine people.”
No. He didn’t. And anyone who actually heard what the President said knew he didn’t.
But the media depends on the stupidity of its audience.
So certain were they that their audience wouldn’t bother actually watching video of the press conference, the media told the “Very fine people” lie knowing it would be taken as the gospel truth.
Then they kept repeating it as if it was undisputed fact.
In no time, politicians echoed it uncritically.
And the “Very fine People” hoax narrative was born.
Joe Biden even launched his 2020 campaign based on it.
So ingrained in the national narrative is this lie that when many exposed it as a lie, they were dismissed as cranks and “conspiracy theorists.”
This is how the so-called “free and independent press” operates in the Age of Trump. Repeat a lie often enough that it’s believed as truth to the point where the actual truth sounds like a lie.
Well, with the release of the now infamous phone transcript between President Trump and President Zelensky, the media is creating yet another hoax narrative.
So confident are they that their audience won’t bother reading the damn transcript for themselves, the media – and now Democrats in Congress – are claiming that President Trump said to Zelensky, “I would like you to do us a favor … investigate my 2020 rival Joe Biden.”
Yeah. He said nothing like that.
But here we are again. The Ukraine transcript is the “Very fine people” hoax all over again. Or at least the media and Democrats hope it is.
This is exactly why I told you yesterday not to listen to the cable news people but read the transcript for yourself.
What was the “favor” President Trump asked for?
Well, here is the context in full:
“I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike … I guess you have one of your wealthy people… The server, they say Ukraine has it. There are a lot of things that went on, the whole situation. I think you’re surrounding yourself with some of the same people. I would like to have the Attorney General call you or your people and I would like you to get to the bottom of it. As you saw yesterday, that whole nonsense ended with a very poor performance by a man named Robert Mueller, an incompetent performance, but they say a lot of it started with Ukraine. Whatever you can do, it’s very important that you do it if that’s possible.”
But that’s not how the media and dinks like Adam Schiff are portraying that “I would like you to do us a favor,” is it?
Nope. They skip past everything the President said about election interference and Crowdstrike. Then they skip past President Zelensky’s response. And they go down to the part where President Trump mentions the prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden who was fired after Biden threatened to withhold US aid.
But of course they do.
Because the favor President Trump is asking for is assistance in investigating Ukraine’s role in the 2016 election interference and the RussiaGate debacle.
The media is well aware that this phone conversation doesn’t say what they told us it would say. So they’re trying to turn chicken shit into chicken salad by fudging the facts and omitting pertinent information in order to create a false narrative that every single one of their ResistanceLOL audience members will then uncritically believe.
Naturally Democrats in Congress will happily play along because it helps advance their impeachment fantasy.
But they’re all lying. Just like they have for two years with that “Very fine people” hoax.
Yes, President Trump brings up Biden bragging about getting that prosecutor who was investigating his son fired.
And why shouldn’t he?
Should Joe Biden get a pass for influence peddling and strong-arming a foreign country by holding US aid hostage in order to protect his son?
In fact, Joe Biden actually did what the media and Congressional Democrats accuse President Trump of doing (and, as we can see from the transcript, clearly did not do).
The news media is trying to do several things here.
First, as has been the case since 2009, they are seeking to shield the Obama Administration. But not just Obama. They are also trying to bury the fact that the DNC and the Hillary campaign enlisted Ukraine’s help in defeating Donald Trump in 2016. Ukraine cooperating with an investigation into foreign influence for the benefit of the Democrats must be hidden at all costs.
So what do they do? They accuse President Trump of the very thing Team Clinton and the DNC actually did in 2016.
If I had to guess, I’d say the media is concerned over the DOJ’s investigation into the genesis of the Russia hoax. Who can blame them? They were complicit in it. Learning that President Trump personally asked Ukraine’s president to cooperate with the DOJ in this investigation must have been a chilling discovery.
And that leads me to the second thing. The media is trying to protect itself. The truth of what happened in 2016 and the subsequent RussiaGate witch hunt will hurt the news media. It will expose their complicity in the effort to undermine the 2016 election.
Third, the media is trying to protect Joe Biden.
What Biden did – what he even bragged about doing – is straight-up corruption. To use US aid as leverage to protect his son from prosecution? Come on. This is a serious matter. If Joe Biden was using his Vice Presidency as a way to financially enrich his family while protecting them from legal scrutiny, that is the height of corruption. It’s Clinton-level corruption.
In fact, if you changed the names from Joe Biden and Hunter Biden to Donald Trump and Don Junior, the media would be apoplectic with rage over what Biden did.
But it’s Joe Biden – a Democrat in good standing, the 2020 frontrunner, and former Vice President of their God-King Barack. The media does not want his malfeasance seen in the cool, clear light of day.
And finally, the media is desperate to get Trump impeached.
I mentioned yesterday that the radical fringe of the Democrat Congress is the one controlling Nancy Pelosi.
But I’m thinking that may be only partially correct.
I think the real influence behind the Democrat Congress is the corporate news media. They’re the ones who actually calling the shots. The Democrats follow the media’s lead.
Both the Democrats and the media know that the American people overwhelmingly disagree with impeachment. Vulnerable House Democrats certainly know that. And they don’t want to risk their seats by hopping aboard the SS
Enter the news media. They still believe that they are the major influencer of public opinion. So what do they do? They howl about this transcript, pretend it says something it doesn’t, invite on guest after guest to clutch pearls and bemoan the “existential threat to our national security” that this phone call reveals. All in hopes that they can change the public’s mind on impeachment.
That’s why when the transcript didn’t reveal what they said it would and all the wild claims fell apart, the media decided to use the same tactic they used with the “Very fine people” hoax — just lie about what Trump said.
And keep lying until it becomes accepted Truth.
The question is, are Americans naïve enough to believe that this time, THIS TIME, the media is telling them the truth?
First of all, alternative media sources are much more savvy to what these hacks are doing. And this time they’re prepared to immediately fight back against the lie.
It also doesn’t help that trust in the mainstream news media at an all-time low. Americans have been played and lied to far too many times over the last three years. And as a result, we are much more skeptical of the crap the media peddles.
As the old saying goes, “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”
And, other than the Trump Deranged ResistanceLOL who fall for everything, I don’t think many voters will be fooled this time around.
