Why just report NEWS about the President when you can gin up angst, instead?
The same ‘crack’ reporters who believed every word Obama offered about that planeload of unmarked bills NOT being a ransom payment? (And then ‘the lie fell apart‘.)
Those very same ‘journalists’ will invoke words like ‘Muslim ban’ and ‘Muslim majority country’ every chance they get.
Does it have anything to do with the (R) after Trump’s name and the (D) after Obama’s? Could they be biased? Hmmmm?
Ninety-six percent of individuals working in journalism who have donated to a presidential campaign during the 2016 cycle contributed funds to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, according to a report by the Center for Public Integrity. — The Blaze
There’s a REASON we at ClashDaily describe the alleged ‘legacy media’ as the AV department of the ‘Democratic’ Party. But Snopes won’t be filtering for THAT bias, now will they?
The media is coaching the public to lose their minds over this latest executive order. (When did they start objecting to executive orders, BTW? Journalists just LOVED Executive Orders! Obama couldn’t do ENOUGH with that mighty pen and phone of his… and… have you noticed isn’t he dreamy?’ Yes. We noticed how dreamy you thought he was. Maybe that’s why you didn’t do your job for 8 years.
Now they’re conditioning and even ACTIVATING public activism. Giving talking points and passing out the script for the marchers to rally. Just think about how often you hear marchers parroting mindless rhetoric about Trump hating minorities and women. (But Bill Clinton? He’s just awesome!)
This translates to the media almost calling out the plays for the public to march by.
But are these REALLY anti-Muslim ‘bans’? Absolutely Not!
For one thing, we heard no equivalent outrage when Obama stopped processing visas from Iraq for 6 months.
The discovery in 2009 of two al Qaeda-Iraq terrorists living as refugees in Bowling Green, Kentucky — who later admitted in court that they’d attacked U.S. soldiers in Iraq — prompted the bureau to assign hundreds of specialists to an around-the-clock effort aimed at checking its archive of 100,000 improvised explosive devices collected in the war zones, known as IEDs, for other suspected terrorists’ fingerprints…
As a result of the Kentucky case, the State Department stopped processing Iraq refugees for six months in 2011, federal officials told ABC News – even for many who had heroically helped U.S. forces as interpreters and intelligence assets. — Herald
Or that the countries named by Trump were the same ones that OBAMA’s administration were already scrutinizing?
That said, here’s are excerpts from a breakdown of the order itself (Full article at DailyWire)
— Invoking 9/11
“The United States cannot, and should not, admit those who do not support the Constitution, or those who would place violent ideologies over American law.”
— Nationals from specific countries. This is NOT unprecedented. And even still, this is for a specified period of time until new vetting procedures can be put in place.
— Discretion is Possible. There is latitude for the exemption to be waived for specific or exeptional cases.
— Refugees capped at 50,000 per year. Consistent with numbers prior to Obama ramping them up. (read the full article at DailyWire)
The media is making the classic internet troll mistake. All their reporting right now is in the equivalent of ALL CAPS.
We’ve all seen angry screeds written in all caps, and except for a few who like to feed the trolls, and get them going, most of us see those blocks of text, and skip it. Soon enough, we avoid reading comments by the chronic offenders. And like the old story about the Boy Who Cried Wolf… our question for the Media is this:
How can you POSSIBLY hope to get our attention when there really IS a scandal? You’ve been shouting since before he took office.
