Media Pushes Unverified Gossip To Hide Trump’s Amazing Economic And Foreign Policy Achievements

Just hours before the release of the official BLS report on Friday morning, The Atlantic ran a story based on “anonymous sources” alleging that President Trump disparaged fallen U.S. soldiers during a 2018 trip to France. The claim was absurd. Officials and staffers who were with the president on that journey and actually willing to identify themselves emphatically challenged the story. Even well-known Trump antagonist John Bolton debunked The Atlantic’s ridiculous account—and ridiculous is a kind way to describe it.

Realizing that casting doubt on the president’s patriotism was a losing battle, on Sunday the corporate press moved on to another smear campaign —just in time to hijack the Labor Day news coverage. In a lengthy essay, The New York Times blasted President Trump for allegedly being inconsistent in his approach toward China while building up Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden as some sort of born-again anti-China hawk.

“A Harris-Biden administration is going to relaunch that effort and keep pushing further to make it easier for military spouses and veterans to find meaningful careers,” he continued.

President Trump official warns left-wing hit squads are being trained across the country as globalists maneuver to complete their worldwide take-down

Just when I was about to publish this story on Monday, an absolutely startling story broke that not only proved the point of this story but implored me to add another important segment to it as a top Health and Human Services official working for President Trump has warned of ‘left wing hit squads’ being trained across America to carry out an armed insurrection should President Trump win the election.

With the mainstream media immediately jumping on that story and claiming it was ‘fake news’, giving us every indication that it is ‘true news’ with the MSM’s track record of outright lying to the American people over the past several decades, Americans should make no mistake about it, the ‘globalist/democrat enemies of America within’ would NEVER EVER tell us if they were about to launch an ‘extermination campaign’ against the American people.

Sailer in Taki's on the NYT's White-Counting

While The New York Times is quite worked up over White Privilege, which it assumes is proven by white overrepresentation among the powerful, it has never shown any interest in the exactly parallel concept of Jewish Privilege.

And yet Jews are far more overrepresented among the NYT’s “Faces of Power” listing of the 922 most important Americans than are whites in general (although possibly less so than you might expect). A Twitter user named Philippus Arabus went through the list and identified 120 Jewish individuals compared with the Times’ count of only 85 blacks, 62 Hispanics, and 32 Asians.

Jews, who make up about 2 percent of the population, are 13 percent of the NYT’s rankings. One might think that Jewish pundits who promote the concept of White Privilege by pointing to the greater executive power per capita of whites than blacks should ponder that the exact same logic would suffice to demonstrate the existence of Jewish Privilege.

ASSANGE HEARING DAY SIX—Prosecutor Says Government Can Prosecute Journalist for Publishing

Prosecutor James Lewis QC established in court that the U.S. government can prosecute a journalist for unauthorized publication of classified information, despite the First Amendment concerns of the defense.

James Lewis set out that the Espionage Act be used against government employees who breach their trust with the government, but also that the government can prosecute those outside a relationship with the government, such as journalists” who are unauthorized to possess and disseminate secret material.

President Trump Warns Iran Of Retaliation If They Assassinate US Ambassador

President Donald Trump has issued a stark warning to Iran if they go through with an alleged plan to assassinate the US ambassador to South Africa.

On Monday, reports emerged that Iran was considering assassinating the US ambassador to South Africa, Lana Marks, as retaliation for the killing of General Qassem Soleimani, the head of the Iranian regime’s Quds Force, in a drone strike earlier this year.

US officials have been aware of a general attack on the ambassador since the spring, but intelligence suggests the threat has become far more specific in recent weeks, according to a government official. The Iranian Embassy in Pretoria is involved in the plot, they told Politico.
