The Washington Post, on May 15 of this year, published an article stating President Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting, according to current and former anonymous U.S officials, who allegedly stated that Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence.
Who are the so-called U.S. officials? The Washington Post has fabricated anonymous sources in the past. What prevents the reporters, Greg Miller and Greg Jaffe, from fabricating sources now? Who was in the room with President Trump, H.R. McMasters, and the Russian diplomats? The Washington Post does not provide details.
H.R. McMasters met with the press and flatly stated the Washington Post story was false. Then the paragons of propaganda attacked McMasters: Katy Tur, NBC News; Jim Acosta, CNN; Kristen Welker and Chris Matthews, MSNBC News. These people were not in the room with the President yet they all claim obstruction of justice because President Trump legitimately fired former Director Comey.
Where is the obstruction of justice? Not one investigation has been stopped. Andrew McCabe, Acting Director of the FBI, testified before Congress that no one has interfered with the so-called Russian investigation and additional money for the investigation was neither needed nor requested, destroying another radical left media lie.
The myth of the Russian interference is fake, as outlined on page 395 of the book Shattered Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign: “ . . .Hillary declined to take responsibility for her own loss. ‘She’s not being particularly reflective,’ said one longtime ally who was on calls with here shortly after the election. Instead, Hillary kept pointing her finger at Comey and the Russia. ‘She wants to make sure all these narratives get spun the right way,’ this person said” [emphasis mine].
“That strategy had been set within twenty-four hours of her concession speech. Mook and Podesta assembled her communications team at the Brooklyn headquarters to engineer the case that the election wasn’t entirely on the up and up. For a couple of hours, with Shake Shack containers littering the room, they went over the script they would pitch to the press and the public. Already, Russian hacking was the centerpiece of the argument” [emphasis mine].
Next, we know that John Brennan began feeding false intelligence to Congress regarding Russian meddling in the election. We also know that President Obama changed the intelligence sharing protocol to ensure that more people and agencies would have access to the false intelligence. We also know that the CIA had the capability to hack other countries and systems and make it look like the Russians did it.
Now, the propaganda arms of the Democratic Party step into the story. What is clear is the Washington Post released stolen classified information, property of the United States government, and may have endangered a critical intelligence source. Outside the Washington beltway, receiving stolen property is considered a felony.
Even Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu criticized several media outlets, including CNN and the New York Times for fake news. The Washington Post, New York Times, CNN and other media, are no longer believed to be “real” news organizations. But they brought their own demise out of the shadows. When the Washington Post news room erupts in cheers and applause for anti-Trump attacks, the Washington Post has lost all credibility, as has CNN, New York Times, MSNBC, ABC, NBC and CBS.
The great danger America faces stems from uncontrolled leaks. The Washington Post and other media encourage the leaking of classified information and fake news, such as Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s threat to quit, the false story of Director Comey requesting more funding, CNN’s claim that Donald Trump was under investigation, CNN’s connection of a grand jury subpoenas issued to associates of Michael Flynn, and the multitude of inane media comparisons to Watergate. The end result is what we see today: a disorganized, unhinged, chaotic and thoroughly dishonest news media.
Congress needs to pass legislation making the receipt of stolen property a felony. Reporters and their employers should be charged for endangering the United States. The First Amendment does not allow news organizations to declare war on any presidential administration.
Congress should pass a second piece of legislation making it a felony to publish fake news. And Congress may want to enact legislation establishing standards of behavior for news media personnel as they only way to counter the increasingly political attacks and fake news so rampant today.
The Washington Post and other radical left media present a clear and present danger to the stability of the American government. We need not worry about Russia and North Korea when our primary enemies are within our own borders.
