At this point, we know the news cycle.
Russia - nope
Racism - Smollet
Immigrants - SCOTUS ruling
Recession - DOW and Job numbers great
Nothing is sticking. It is getting so bad they are going back to past items (SCOTUS Kavanaugh) since the public is not backing an impeachment of the
president. The noose is tightening and the media is going to have to make a choice. Pander or the truth and the longer they wait the harder it will be
That is it. The media, unbeknownst to many who just believe what they read, have been recycling the same news since before the election and after it
is like a timed cycle. Many times in this forum people will state there is no proof. The orange man is simply bad and for some reason after decades of
hating them I see people championing those who Trump wants to remove. The career politicians and lobbyists. Two stories I saw today hit the nail on
the head with the fake news media reporting what the anti Trump base wants to hear.
Lobbying - The AP is reporting that President Trump has appointed more 'lobbyists' to his cabinet than any other president in recent years. This
headline looks like he is not draining the swamp but instead filling it with those who he can control and who will benefit from his presidency. Well,
those people who were appointed may have something else to say based on the POTUS's own bill that was passed. it also states that the monies used to
lobby have gone up. Well, I would think so because there are so many anti-Trump efforts but if you read the article it is as if it is for Trump.
Link to AP Article = Fake News
Instead of staring down “the unholy alliance of lobbyists and donors and special interests” as Trump recently declared, the influence industry has
flourished during his administration.
Trump’s hotel near the White House has been a magnet for lobbyists and foreign interests.
So a non-informed voter who reads a headline and a snippet simply thinks Trump is making money while in office and loves lobbyists. Both are not true.
losing money in office
And this morning, the Washington Post reported that the Doral resort in Miami, Fl., previously the most money-making property in the Trump
Organization, had seen its net operating income decline by 69 percent from 2015 to 2017, or from $13.8 million to $4.3 million. These reports come as
the Trump Organization has seen its fortunes decline nationwide as controversies swirl around its namesake. “Being president has cost me a fortune
— a tremendous fortune like you’ve never seen before,” Trump said to reporters last year.
He is not making more money while in office. And as for lobbyists, he passed the following legislation,
Trump draining the swamp
Under an executive order that Trump signed in the presence of the news media, every political appointee joining the executive branch on or after Jan.
20 — the day Trump took office — must agree to the lobbying bans. That includes avoiding, for five years after leaving, lobbying the agency they
worked for. Another provision sets a two-year period during which appointees must avoid working on issues involving former employers or clients.
This is an amended order that was also issued by Obama so I do know that. Fact is that again the current administration is doing what passed
administrations have and just making it better or actually enforcing existing laws.
Next is the media talking about the sudden retirement of GOP House seats. It is as if it is all crashing down according to Maddow and the Lemon Bunch
when in reality, to me, they see the writing on the wall. The spigot of money from the government is drying up. Cuts all around and there should be.
Some are leaving to run for local seats or to help out in other ways. It is just the way things work. One is stepping down because he just had a
to step down
The media is reporting that the GOP is all jumping ship. Realize, you had over 20 leave during midterms. It is just something that happens.
Bottom line. The Swamp is being drained, slowly but surely, and in the second term it is going to get even wilder.
So are you Fake News or for the continued Drain...slowly but surely.
