USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Most of us reading this are OK with President Trump's Tweets for the reason that they bypass the biased Main Stream Media (MSM).
That's because most of us, of a certain age, have been aware that the MSM has been lying about guns and gun owners for decades. They are our unrelenting enemy and has taken every cheap shot [pun intended] at the Second Amendment that it could.
But at this point in time, the MSM has gone way beyond blurring the truth, and is delving into the fantasy mode of transmitting Fake News. The MSM complains that Pres. Trump's tweets against them diverts the attention away from his message and agenda. It might sound reasonable, but it is not, as Pres. Trump platform ran around the continued media bashing. And though he won the election, the resulting media war isn't pretty. But his tweets, ARE VERY REFRESHING!
The MSM's complaints have more to them than accusing Mr. Trump of poor judgment and ignorance. They attack him, and his family, at a visceral, personal level. The MSM are very afraid that Trump's Tweeting taunts will taint them, and stick to them. We should never go along with their calls for the President to stop his attacks. Those attacks, on the Main Stream Media, benefit the folks who have endured those lies for decades.
Our President has great instincts. He told us he would drain the DC swamp. And we gunnies should be the first to know that the MSM is a big part of that swamp. news media are the ones who protect swamp people with lies and punish the patriots with more lies. They are a big part of the reason politicians fear to act as they promised.
It is shocking to see the MSM in action. They make and repeat slanderous fantastical accusations against the victim of the moment. As we're writing, it's Donald Trump Jr and Pres. Trump. They have charged Trump Jr. with treason and found him guilty, and when they have run out of ‘evidence‘, they'll find another victim to destroy. Additionally, the Left has submitted Articles of Impeachment against Pres. Trump, also for treason.
By the time you read this, the person or persons under media attack could be anyone else who favors our President's agenda.
We should trust Pres. Trump's instincts. If all he does is clean out the swamp and shame the MSM into doing their job, then we, and our kids, would at least be given accurate news information. That alone could be enough to aid the populace to keep the nation strong after his time in office.
If Pres. Trump caves to the swamp's demands to cease and desist, then he will become a mediocre President. It is his courageous, unflagging resistance that drives the MSM to its lowest, as they attempt to destroy him.
The fact that, the harder Pres. Trump slaps them back, the smellier the Main Street Media gets. And that's good thing, because they sink so low that more people will notice their lies, inconsistencies and their dangerous juvenile behavior, such as CNN recently exhibited.
We should never be fooled into complaining that our President is not acting in a presidential manner. He is exposing the MSM dry rot and we should have some hope that there will be a backlash toward towards the lies championing the truth.
If the Main Street Media appears to change, it would only be due to the need to survive. They would change their appearance of outright hostility towards us gun owners, in order to fool us into accepting the new face of media. And that would be another great deception.
Could we, and this generation, ever trust them? Probably not!
Let President Trump fight with the Left's media. He fights for truth. He fights for Freedom. He fights for everything the United States of America stands for – “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
