Donald Trump once enjoyed a fairly friendly relationship with the mainstream media. Then he ran for president. As a Republican. On an “America First” platform. The relationship soured quickly. As bad as Candidate Trump’s relationship with media was, President-elect Trump’s relationship with media is worse. It appears that some media organizations are willing to risk everything in an effort to bring him down.
"It now turns out that the phony allegations against me were put together by my political opponents and a failed spy afraid of being sued," Trump tweeted Friday. "Totally made up facts by sleazebag political operatives, both Democrats and Republicans — FAKE NEWS!"
Is the intelligence community responsible for leaking the spurious “dossier” about Trump? To shed light on this question, Trump said he had a “meeting with intelligence” that he told no one about — “and immediately the word got out that I had a meeting.”
Do the U.S. intelligence community's actions rise to the level of “something that Nazi Germany would have done,” as Trump charges? And do those actions include not only fake intel against Trump but also giving him “fake briefings"?
In a statement posted on the White House website on January 12, President Obama announced the ending of the “wet-foot/dry foot” policy, which allowed Cuban refugees who set foot on U.S. soil to be granted asylum and legal residency.
The tactic continues to work, moving once-local police departments under the de facto control of the federal government.
That President-elect Donald Trump is hated and feared by the power base of both political parties and the current leadership of the intelligence community is no surprise to anyone who has been following the news over the past few months. Recent events related to the spurious “dossier” appended to the intelligence community’s report of alleged Russian interference in U.S. elections show just how deep that hatred and fear run.
FBI Director James Comey, who investigated Hillary Clinton's e-mails, now faces an investigation himself by the inspector general of the Justice Department. Will other persons involved in the investigation, like Attorney General Loretta Lynch also be investigated?
The intelligence community and the liberal mainstream media have used the existence of a document that no one has verified to attack President-elect Donald Trump. As more of the story comes out, that attack appears to be backfiring. CNN is quickly losing what credibility it had left and the intelligence community appears to be attempting to distance itself from the document it considered worthy of adding to the official report on the — also unproven — allegations of a Russian campaign to influence the election.
Every Republican except Rand Paul voted on January 12 to approve a budget resolution that would dismantle the Affordable Care Act — popularly known as ObamaCare.
Most Americans would be at a loss to explain why the Electoral College is important, even as liberals rage against it. Here’s why.
