POTUS Trump did it again gosh darn it. He went and made good on yet another promise to voters – much to the chagrin of the anti-Trump media. This time it was announcing the removal of on-the-ground U.S. military personnel in war-torn Syria. How fascinating is it to see socialist liberals now wailing about a president who makes clear his desire to END wars instead of keep them going?
Via The Hill:
…President Trump has been consistent in his desire to implement a sweeping “America First” strategy across all sectors of his administration. He is on-record as Citizen Trump, as early as 2012, calling for our withdrawal from Afghanistan, an end to wasteful military spending and endangering of U.S. forces, and the investment of taxpayer dollars back into rebuilding America. No surprise, then; this decision reflects consistency of messaging and action. Promises made, promises kept.
The news media’s headlines articulated the latest flare-up of their near-chronic psychoses — the political version of what rocker Mick Jagger meant when he sang, “Here it comes, here it comes … Here comes your 19th nervous breakdown.”
Consider some of those headlines:
“Mattis Exit Stirs World of Worries From Brussels to Beijing,” (Bloomberg);
“ ‘A morning of alarm’: Mattis departure sends shock waves abroad,” (Washington Post);
“Jim Mattis, Defense Secretary, Resigns in Rebuke of Trump’s Worldview,” (New York Times);
“The Last Grown-up is Gone,” (Slate);
“Lawmakers Sound Bipartisan Alarm After Resignation By Defense Secretary Jim Mattis,” (NPR);
“James Mattis resignation over Trump foreign policies sparks panic: ‘I’m legitimately frightened’,” (The Independent);
“Jim Mattis’ Resignation Has Conservatives Admitting It’s ‘Time To Panic’ About Trump,” (Huffington Post).
There are more, but you get the point.
How many times can the news media falsely and hysterically sound the apocalypse alarm?
Besides being 100 percent wrong on the election of Donald Trump in 2016, their fear-mongering predictions of doom and condemnation have been wrong on any number of other Trump policies, initiatives and personnel moves. Those include last year’s tax cuts, eliminating the ObamaCare individual mandate, North Korea, moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, the falsely named “Muslim travel ban,” employment and manufacturing increases, Department of Veterans Affairs reform, NATO’s financial accountability, two Supreme Court justices, and repudiation of the Iran nuclear “deal.”
Likewise, White House and cabinet personnel moves were supposed to bring about the end of the republic: Priebus, Tillerson, McMaster, Cohn, McGahn, Sessions, Kelly, Haley – and, now, Mattis.
Well, the country is doing just fine, thank you. We’ve survived and prospered. No one is truly “irreplaceable.” That notion might bruise D.C. egos and constrain professional biographers, but it’s true.
The larger question for members of the news media is, where do they go to get back their credibility? Three straight years of humiliation and the loss of even the thinnest veneers of impartiality have left their reputations and code of ethics in tatters. Perhaps it is time to get back into therapy and onto some prescribed meds?
Despising the success of someone you loathe is as poisonous to the mind and soul as the schadenfreude of reveling in their defeat. Those afflicted can be consumed with it. It’s the stuff nervous breakdowns are made of … or, as that Rolling Stones song says, “Here it comes, here it comes … ”
Last year the same socialist media denounced President Trump for his decision to follow the advice of his generals to remain in Syria for a little longer. Now, they are denouncing him again for announcing we’re leaving Syria. And don’t forget, it was Barack Obama who stated just a few years ago that the conflict with ISIS (who he earlier dismissed as a non-significant threat) would be a generational one – meaning there wasn’t much we could do about tens of thousands of people being killed, tortured, raped, etc., by the Islamic militants hell-bent on spreading their violence and hatred across the globe. Trump thought very differently about that and the result of that change in philosophy is undeniable – ISIS was all but wiped out, and it didn’t take decades to do it but mere months. In short, we took President Trump’s advice and “bombed the sh*t out of them” and it worked.
Peace through strength. It was Ronald Reagan’s way and now it is Trump’s way.
The socialist media disliked Reagan and it detests Trump.
Reagan was right then just as Trump is right now as the socialist media is again on the wrong side of history and no amount of hysterical wailing is going to change that… (LANGUAGE WARNING)
