Trump vs. the Crazies / Plus, Video: Acosta’s Own Goal — He Proves Walls Work

Trump vs. the Crazies

Michael Reagan · Jan. 11, 2019

If for some strange reason you didn’t already know how much the liberal media hates President Trump, you found out this week.

The Trump Hate Machine got revved up even before the president gave his national prime-time address Tuesday night about what he called “the growing humanitarian and security crisis at our southern border.”

Some of the country’s most desperate liberals in the media actually argued that the president’s televised pitch to the country for congressional funding for a stronger border fence should not be carried live by the networks.

Why? Because they said the president lies too much and they wanted to be able to fact-check his speech beforehand.

Of course, no one in the liberal media would have ever dreamed of showing such disrespect — and obvious bias — for one of Barrack Obama’s nationally televised pontifications.

Obama’s lies and false promises about the benefits of ObamaCare, like his misleading spinning about his administration’s fiascoes in the Middle East, were not checked, challenged or ridiculed immediately afterwards by the pundits, commentators or biased fact-checkers of the Washington Post, CNN, CBS, MSNBC, NPR, etc., etc., et liberal cetera.

In his tweets and at his press conferences does our current president embellish, exaggerate or stretch the facts to serve his political arguments or boost his record?

Of course he does.

Is he the first president in the history of America to do so?

Of course not.

It doesn’t make it OK for any president of any party to lie to the public or deliberately over-promise things to win political support, and if they do they should be called out on it by a fair, balanced and honest media.

But wouldn’t it be nice if our liberal media spent a little time fact-checking the Chuck Schumers & Nancy Pelosis of the world?

The least they could do is find 30 seconds of airtime to show some pre-Trump Era video clips of “see-no-crisis-at-the-border” Democrats like Schumer, Obama and Bill and Hillary Clinton warning Americans about the dangers of illegal immigrants and calling for stronger border security.

We know the liberal mainstream media don’t play fair, they play favorites.They’ll never seek out and publicize the flip-flops or hypocrisies of the Schumers & Pelosis.

But you can always count on the liberal media to over-publicize the supposedly terrible suffering caused by a partial government shutdown, which they have been busy doing.

So here were are with the president in a political stalemate.

Democrats in Congress led by Schumer & Pelosi don’t want a stronger border fence (now that Trump is for it) and refuse to give the president a dollar to fund it.

They and other Democrats in Congress and the media don’t think caravans of illegal immigrants trying to crash our border with Mexico qualify as a national emergency, which Trump says he has the power to declare to get his fence built if Democrats won’t compromise.

As I see it, President Trump has no choice but to hold firm. I think he should hold firm and I think he will.

What worries me are the Republicans in Congress. I’m afraid they’re going to cave.

If enough of them join with Schumer & Pelosi and the Democrats, our border security will be in the hands of newly elected crazies like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who think America should put out the welfare welcome mat for anyone who can get here.

If that happens, the rest of America will know what it’s like to live in California.

Video: Acosta’s Own Goal — He Proves Walls Work

He posted a video showing viewers how an already-walled section of the border is "crisis-free."

Media Editors · Jan. 11, 2019

The Daily Signal’s Kelsey Harkness writes, “On Thursday, the network’s chief White House correspondent, Jim Acosta, posted a video showing viewers how an already-walled section of the border is ‘crisis-free.’ In doing so, he showed how barriers act as a deterrent and facilitate safety and order along the border.”

I found some steel slats down on the border. But I don’t see anything resembling a national emergency situation.. at least not in the McAllen TX area of the border where Trump will be today.
