Trump is a FAKE NEWS FACTORY

ABC Facebook page
What does Trump refer to when he claims the fake news treats him unfairly?

Trump is always the prime subject of Mainstream Media (MSM). Broadcasting outlets allow Trump to dominate the news cycle, especially during his COVID-19 campaign rallies or announcements. There is little investigative reporting or fact checking with exceptions by WaPo, MSNBC, CNN, The Boston Globe, The Guardian (UK) and other less prestigious media sites around the country.

So one can only think that when Trump refers to fake news, he is referring to himself. Yes, Donald J. Trump! You are your own fake news cycle. By your own assertions, you continually make yourself look uneducated, indecent, arrogant unforgiving, defensive, paranoid, humorless, stupid and classless. Actually, the descriptor list is endless in the negative.

Because Trump is historically, a criminal fraud, we can look back and understand that during the 2016 campaign, Trump morphed his own universe to transform normalcy into a George Orwell-like 1984 world that is Trumpland. In Trumpland black is white, truth is a lie, green is yellow and the "true" narrative which is fraud is what spills from Trump's mouth. You must fact check it or be propagandized. The MSM must fact check Trump with everything all the time. If Trump is somewhere, he lies everywhere. And his lies and frauds must be challenged all the time.

During the 2016 election cycle on RT, Fox News, PBS, New York Times, Breitbart, Sputnik, Pravda, Rush Limbaugh's podcasts, Daily Stormer and other right wing media, the transformation of truth becoming a lie was promoted exponentially on Social Media by Russian Military Intelligence bots clicking from a Troll Farm in St. Petersburg. There were 13 organizations, thousands of operatives the Mueller Report noted. Since Putin hates Hillary Clinton, God forbid she should win. Putin wanted to make good on his billions in Quid Pro Quos to Trump washing funds through Deutsch Bank and Cyprus Bank. Trump had to win and MSM was duped as a part of the 8 pronged strategy to get Trump elected. The same strategies are being attempted by the RNC to date. But Trump's is about to go down for the count because as James Carville Democrat who ran the Clinton campaign has said: no one wants Trump back. They don't trust him to keep Americans alive during the fight with COVID.

Segue back to MSM (mainstream media).

Not to be left out of revenue gathering in 2016, MSM gradually slid into Trumpland values and memes. Trump's controversial statements on clips (pussy tape, Russia if you're listening, lock her up) fell in the same category of fake news lying media Fox. But the nightmare was that NBC, CBS, ABC, PBS, the NYT and other apparently "reputable" news media reported his statements giving them the patina of truth. After all, would the NYT be responsible for reporting lies? Of course. They got caught at it numerous times without fact checking. However, by the time they corrected themselves it was 10 days later and the corrections were on p. 25 in tiny print. Their editors are predominately conservative; their Op Ed page accepts liars who smeared Clinton and Biden. They don't fact check and they discriminate and use the pretense of "all the news that's fit to print," except when it isn't.

Thus, after he became president, Trump was his own fake media source turned mainstream.   From the power of the presidential seat, by virtue of the mantle conferred upon him, whether he was suited to it or not, Trump was mainstreamed. DONALD TRUMP'S LIES ARE MAINSTREAM MEDIA presentations. They are not fact checked and in this Pandemic of COVID-19, you listen to them at your own peril. Thank goodness for MSNBC, CNN, WaPo, The New Yorker, Buzzfeed, NPR, Politico, The Boston Globe, and others who have held Trump to account. If you are not reading or listening/watching to these outlets, do so. Save your life. From Trump's FAKES.

Regardless of whether the MSM media wanted to or not, they were forced to cover him because they helped elect him. Things got serious really fast and the MSM was chided and pushed around by Trump if the coverage was unflattering. Only CNN, WaPo and MSNBC wore his criticisms as a badge of honor. The other news sites whined and their editors changed up the narrative to suit Trump. Those editors should be fired for their lack of journalistic integrity.

By the time they started fact checking Trump's lies, the FBI had been through the crucible, the Pandemic Office had been closed, and the Mueller Report and investigation were invisible. Only the truth seekers, MSNBC, CNN, WaPo, The Boston Globe and the others mentioned stood firm in reporting facts and daring to hold Trump accountable. The other news sources were Trump media, fake news sites compromising their integrity to hold Trump accountable in their lukewarm reporting. If a reporter from their organizations dared to ask him an embarrassing question or ask any of his lackeys an embarrassing question, they were dunned as fake. Thus, MSM gradually was cowed into reflecting Trumpism to be "truthful." Lies became truth, truth lies.

By the time the media had been excoriated by the truth seekers, pundits, journalism professors etc., they woke up. It was too late. Meanwhile, the media truth seekers, fueled by comedy shows, i.e. The Colbert Report, SNL, Bill Maher, etc. showed camera clips and repeated Trump's outrageous gaffs (numbering by now in the hundreds if you count his tweets) and 20,000 lies fact checking them. Trump responded and eventually there was no one to head up the WH Press Secretary while Trump's fake news operation in tandem with MSM fake news soldiered on.

Trump's Under-reported Outlandishness Connecting 2017 to 2020

One of Trump's first outlandish statements was at his Inauguration Speech when he talked about the slaughterhouse he inherited from Obama. (a strange projection of future events which he created when he closed down the Pandemic Office and fired its personnel in 2018 delivering the US into the epicenter of death and destruction.)

In one fell prophesy, he said it all, though no one understood what he was talking about and neither did he. He was intentionally mischaracterizing the Obama White House. There is an irony to this blatant lie. Here we are at 100,000 deaths (red states not reporting accurately). The US is a COVID-19 slaughterhouse. Many have died in our nation's slaughterhouses-meat packing plants. Thus, Trump has prophesied upon his own head and his administration the worst legacy of a US president, turning the country into a slaughterhouse. By ignoring rapid action to stem COVID-19, his failure continues to this day with no national response which is the mandate of the president: the use of his executive powers to keep Americans safe. Instead, it is the blue state governors who have kept Americans safe.

The media whores promoted Trump and the GOP in a chauvinistic, discriminatory, self-aggrandizing knock-down, making sure Hillary Clinton and Democrats would not receive continual free coverage. Trump, knowing the importance of free coverage for branding his image, unfairly took advantage of this and the MSM supported his endeavors, helping to elect him. They must not do the same thing again with Biden. But comments by friends who are not on Social Media indicate that once again Trump's FAKE MSM news cycle covers him without properly committing to investigative journalism and fact checking.

And at times they select clips of VP Biden that are not decisive and  positive, clues that they are part of the Trump fake media. Biden receives sops while Trump is made to appear presidential and cogent. That is an example of MSM FAKE NEWS. If you count Trump's gaffs and his injunctions to take a dangerous drug hydroxycholorquine, to inject Lysol, to drink bleach, Trump finger pointing at Biden is laughable.

Indeed, if one is a never Trumper, then one should turn off the broadcasts of his speeches or rallies that are filled with his lying assertions and craven misrepresentations to aggrandize himself. I can't stand to hear him. He is a stain on this nation every time he opens his mouth to spread his viral lies.

As for Hillary Clinton, it must be noted that her courage was legion as she sustained Trump's criminality and the collaborative infamy and pompous, self-righteous public trashing by craven Democratic males with influential audiences, i.e. Bill Maher and Michael Moore. In bitterness, they blamed her and her campaign for losing to Trump. Too bad their simple analysis didn't call down complicated 8 pronged RNC strategies to bring in Trump as president, using Putin's Intel, Cambridge Analytica, Kushner's quid pro quos with FB, the hacking of ballots in 50 states, Jill Stein's candidacy to split votes form Hillary and more.

The RNC needed to garner billions in tax cuts for its donors as insurance to maintain the power Citizen's United gave the rich. Media Companies benefited. Folks thought when Trump said fake news, he was referring to the conglomerates like ABC, CBS, etc. He wasn't. He was referring to all media that fact checked him. Naturally, the conglomerates donated to his campaigns; they opposed Net Neutrality. But they were loathe to fact check his lies for fear of being Trump attacked as fake.

Thus MSM became Trump media like Fox. Interestingly, what was described as Alt Right like Breitbart was also Trump media. Thus Trump media, became lying Trump media as he laid down the gauntlet and MSM followed him like a dog. In the minds of many, MSM made Trump's lies truth. They contributed to the propaganda Trump disseminated. The GOP 2016 win must be laid at the feet of MSM. It must not happen again.

For example, the MSM didn't show video clips of Hillary half as often as they did Trump who managed to be as controversial as possible in click baits which the MSM scarfed up. Despite the illegality of predominately following one candidate, Trump's outrageous statements were useful and that is why he made such comments in a conspiracy with Putin, our virtual adversary we war with today (covered up by the MSM). Thus, MSM and "alternate media" (this is a misnomer-it is smaller segments of Trump media) "covering" Trump lies was promoted by Soc Puppets and Troll Farms set up by Russian Military Intel on Social Media 24/7. The effective campaigning by a foreign adversary, Vlad Putin, to put in his favorite candidate usurped the electoral process of the U.S. Indeed, taxpayers' votes were hacked and Hillary's vote was split by Putin funded American candidate Jill Stein.

To date, though Robert Mueller in his investigation and the Mueller Report attempted to Trump, Putin, the RNC and this White House accountable, because of the corrupt DOJ-Barr and Trump's lawyers, Trump was never impeached as the Mueller Report demanded. Instead. Trump has used his executive powers to stop justice and attempt to prosecute his enemies, Mussolini-style. He has not used his massive executive powers to keep Americans safe by employing the D.P.A. with the military and a quartermaster to gear up equitable cost-saving contracts for testing, PPE supply and distribution chains and tracing to fight against the spread of COVID-19's.

 COVID-19

Meanwhile, the American taxpayer is now facing the greatest risk in US history in a pandemic which the incompetent, criminal Trump can't handle, except to put Project Airbridge in control which thus far through his son-in-law Jared Kushner et. al. is bilking the American public going on upwards of $1 billion dollars according to reporting by John Allan whom I've heard on MSNBC 5/25/2020.

How the Trump administration contracted for inefficient mask sterilization machines that sterilize for under the time they stated is criminal considering there are people who have lost their jobs and are on food bank lines. Indeed, such inefficiency appears to be malfeasance as the company gave one price, $1 million per machine then used bait and switch charging $7 million per machine. Kickbacks? Cronyism? Quid pro Quos? All of it is theft of the American taxpayer by Donald Trump and Jared Kushner who have benefited from our tax dollar but who refuse to pay cops and fire and nurses by funding the 50 states for keeping Americans alive through COVID.

To the thinking American taxpayer who would discern truth from a lie, Donald Trump as his own mainstream media factory is obvious. But it is the pandemic that has outted his criminality, fraud, lies and psychosis like nothing ever before. All the news channels slavishly followed his COVID-19 rallies which grew increasingly craven, insane and frightening. It is a record of infamy in how a president must not deal with a Pandemic. In one example Trump brought his donors, big box retailers and corporations in front of the camera to tell how they were making PPE. Some of them were ill-equipped to do so.

Later we learned that companies who were not Trump donors offered their services but were snubbed by Trump. They were in the business of making PPE and equipment like ventilators? Yes. This is graft on a massive scale. Who reported this?  THE TRUTH SEEKING NEWS SITES.

Now, we understand why Trump cannot employ the DPA with full force and task the military or a quartermaster and his team to research the companies most aligned to make the equipment and gear up to scale with massive production. They would be loyal to the US constitution and the American taxpayers, not Trump's graft making, cronyism, kick-back, quid pro quo machine. Once again, American taxpayers are paying the bill to be killed on a massive scale while Trump's "incompetence" is made fun of. Incompetent? Hardly. When there's money to be made, the Kushner / Trump family is always at the ready.What importance do the American taxpayers have to them? None.

Meanwhile, where are the truth seeking investigative journalists reporting this? They are out there and can be found on the usual suspects: MSNBC, CNN, WaPo, etc. Their reporters in the field resort to extremely thoughtful questioning that nails Trump to his lies before the world. Their teams investigate and pull back the cover-ups. Some reporters questioning Trump are excellent. Often they are black and female. Though he attempts not to answer their questions, he falters and eventually must answer if they persist or he will look like the racist chauvinist he is.

When these reporters strike it hot, he retorts with "that's a nasty question," that's a rude question," "you are fake news." Only then do you understand their probes hold a great truth that Trump is forced to cover up with an epithet of "fake news" or "nasty." Thus, you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that this question is real, it points to facts, Trump has choked on it and his fake news propaganda machine has seized up. At such instances Trump has walked out and has taken a few days to recover. Watch for those moments; they have happened more and more as he attempts to cover-over his failed response to the pandemic which is exceeding 100,000 deaths as I write this. (red state reports and deaths are invisible regarding nursing homes and are largely inaccurate)

But for these rich kernels of fact and truth brought up by Trump's furious response to questions by the "nasty, fake news" reporters, Trump has rendered his broadcasts in all media largely an occasion for fraud and lie spreading. The irony is that Trump, by calling the media fake, is identifying himself as the fake.

Discovering the Fake From the Real

But the only way one is apprised of this is by reading widely investigative news sites (blogs or other city papers, i.e. 'The Boston Globe') and then comparing to MSM FAKE NEWS, in other words Trump media. MSNBC, CNN, WaPo, curators are credible and excellent as investigative news sources which counter the fake MSM by revealing the truth behind Trump's lies.

BUZZFEED has excellent articles. Their article about the PEE PEE tape (which Trump called fake news) is accurate if you walk through Trump's inside relationship with Putin who hates the OBAMA, BIDEN, HILLARY TRIUMVIRATE for their work ousting Putin's corrupt crony in Ukraine. Biden and Clinton helped to establish that country's working elections and democracy. Putin will never forgive them and would kill them if he could; he did character assassinate Clinton, but that action has backfired.  Our eyes are open; the Mueller Report stands in history for all time.

And as I write this, Putin is working with the RNC and Kushner to drum up all sorts of attacks against Biden: witness the NYT Op Eds. about Biden being a weak candidate or hiding in the shadows...sourced by the RNC. The NYT editorial staff accepts RNC editorials but doesn't identify them as such. Well, there's the rub. This is part of the MSM Trump Fake News Cycle. Thus, I do not read the Times. I follow the journalist. Sometimes, the NYT trips up in spite of itself and publishes "all the news that's fit to print." However, its investigative journalism as a whole is pathetic. WaPo is head and shoulders above them. So is The New Yorker, CNN and MSNBC.

Of course since to Trump, only his commentary is the truth, the exposure behind his commentary, he deems fake. This is key. Look for little truths when he ignores a question or does not answer it directly by responding with "fake news," or "nasty" or "rude" question. Then you know it is true and like all truth to a liar, it is embarrassing and humiliating and must be covered up and derided. He is hiding in plain sight which he does often to protect himself. A free person, a truthful person has nothing to hide.

Trump is the FAKE NEWS Fountain of mainstream media. He is a spokesperson for the malevolent GOP and they will, with the exception of Mitt Romney and a few others, fall on the sword for Trump, until in the last analysis Mitch has realized he has gone too far. By being a select spokesperson for the manufacturers of certain big pharma by pushing everything from dangerous non beneficial drugs to "his" vaccine, he has indicated his quid pro quo schemes and cronyism, malfeasance and criminal behavior. Perhaps the anti-vaxxers will accept the Trump vaccine. They certainly will not accept Fauci or Gates certified vaccines.

Like all liars and fakes, when they exceed their own excessive nature, they out themselves. COVID-19 is Trump's Waterloo. This Memorial Day he has outed himself and there will be no turning back. There is a new normal. And Trump will not be in it, nor will he be the MSM darling for much longer. He is an embarrassment to himself. It's only a matter of recognizing the fraud before the criminal's masochism demands it be held to account. So it will be with the criminal in the White House, his cronies and his accomplices in MSM.
