What fake news?

In case you haven't been paying attention to the arbiters of accepted thought, here's what you're supposed to believe: DONALD TRUMP IS EEEEEEEVIL!

Here's proof, courtesy of Time:

A Michigan man blames the death of his 75-year-old mother on President Donald Trump after she was forced to stay in Iraq during the implementation of his controversial immigration ban.

Mike Hager, a U.S. citizen who is from Iraq, told the Detroit television affiliate Fox 2 that he had gone to Iraq to bring his mother, Naimma, back to the United States for medical treatment after she fell ill while visiting there. His mother, a permanent U.S. resident, had lived in America since 1995. But when Hager got to the airport in Iraq, she was turned away, and so were two of his nephews and a niece, because of Trump’s executive order. She died the following day.
That settles it! Trump is evil.

Wait, what's this from the New York Daily News:

An Iraq war contractor who claimed President Trump’s controversial travel ban caused his mother's death lied about the circumstance.

Imam Husham Al-Hussainy, head of the Karbalaa Islamic Educational Center in Dearborn, Mich. told WJBK-TV that Mike Hager's mother died five days before Trump issued the executive order.

He confirmed Hager's 75-year-old mother had been treated in Detroit, where she lived, for kidney disease before traveling to Iraq to visit family.

The Daily News has reached out to Hager for comment.
That's what we can expect from "war contractors": war, multiculturalism, and lies -- in other words, the very things DC imposes on us.

An Imam told the truth?! Really?!

If I've learned just one lesson from Trump's campaign, it's that if the mass media throws out enough lies, most of us will believe some of them.

I'm amazed at the level of propaganda in social media now also.

And notice how if a right-wing group teaches honesty but also teaches to be wary of outsiders, that it's then labeled a "cult". So there's no escape. You're either part of the evil hive mind, or you're labeled a "cult".

We have begun to see where the left is going with their anti-Trump agenda. Expect this sort of media drivel just about every day for the next four years. Trump will be blamed for everything from the bubonic plague to the blind staggers. It's all his fault. If Grandma gets a hangnail, why it's Trump's fault! It's part of a huge "news" media campaign to demonize Trump, who, although far from perfect, could not possibly be responsible for all the crap they will accuse him of.

One has to wonder how many of these people have some nodding financial acquaintance with George Soros, the "conscience" of the world.

Al Benson Jr.,

don't forget the "right wing" heads of the hydra. For example: Rod Dreher:

Any flavour can be anti-Trump / anti-West.

Regarding Trump being imperfect: He's better than Reagan already.

So, while I don't agree with Trump on war, empire, and the 4th Amendment, Trump is pretty good for someone who isn't Christ.

The critics of Trump seem to expect Christ-like perfection.

Al Benson Jr. said...

Trump is better than Reagan already. At least Trump is trying to keep his promises and will probably do all he can until the Establishment finds some way to shut him down. As for Trump's imperfections, his detractors will blame him for everything this is short of absolute perfection. But then, Jesus Christ was perfect and look what His detractors did to Him. Perfection or lack thereof cannot be allowed to get in the way of the cultural Marxist agenda.

Fake News has always existed...............What irks them is that an insider has exposed it.

Like the lie of "Santa Clause", we now have to live our adult lives knowing that most has been a lie.

Al Benson Jr.,

thanks for the reply. I'm glad you see some good in Trump.

His getting active with Iran has me concerned now though. I was singing praises. Now I'm a bit concerned.

If I were President, I'd want to meet with certain foreign states, ask what each wants, ask for reports on their recommendations, and so work towards removing US empire without destabilising the world if possible. I'd just let them talk, y'know. The president should be listening to what foreign heads of state want, not Europe, but for example he should ask the two Koreas their views, and China, Japan, so forth. And I'd just flee the Middle East.
