On 8 August 2017, FFP published an entry regarding the internal battle occurring in the Trump White House between those who seek to pursue a truly ‘America First’ foreign policy agenda, and those seeking to put the interests of a foreign ‘state’ before that of the US. The title of the post is, President Donald Trump Now Faces A Defining Moment For His Presidency. The following observation was made:
This just might be the defining moment of Donald Trump’s Presidency. He is faced with opposing forces within his camp. He is now in a position where he cannot rely upon ‘advisors’ but only what is in his mind and heart.
On 15 August 2017, The New York Times published and article titled, Trump Gives White Supremacists an Unequivocal Boost. In this entry the writers do what The New York Times always does – they lie, distort the facts, and defame.
Take the first paragraph as an example:
President Trump buoyed the white nationalist movement on Tuesday as no president has done in generations — equating activists protesting racism with the neo-Nazis and white supremacists who rampaged in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend.
Anyone familiar with the events that actually occurred on the weekend of 11 August would be left with no doubt that the following paragraphs were about to spin completely off the charts.
To begin with, ‘Neo-Nazis and white supremacists’ never ‘rampaged in Charlottesville’ – Euro-Americans gathered and marched peacefully with no violence utilizing their legal rights of speech and assembly with a city permit to do so. Reading the Times article one would think that these young People ran around the city breaking windows, overturning cars, starting fires, brutally assaulting people not of their race – no wait, that’s what Black Lives Matter did over and over again these past couple years. Of course, the Times won’t point that fact out.
Also, when one reads this New York Times screed one would be left astonished by the fact that never once are the violence-inciting cowards of antifa mentioned – a group that has so outraged peaceful citizens by their hit-and-run savagery that 93,431 signatures have been collected since February for a petition at change.org asking the President to ‘Declare ANTIFA a terrorist organization’.
No, the Times just wants their readers to believe that these brotherhood of love activists were merely ‘protesting racism’ and they were viciously attacked by ‘Neo-Nazis and white supremacists’ rampaging through Charlottesville. Never mind that it is the Euro-Americans who held the permit for their gathering and the ‘protestors’ were actually the ones who went rampaging through the streets assaulting those they hate – People who had no choice but to fight back.
And here is the crux of it all: President Trump called these savages out on it where the mainstream media would not.
They refer to a news conference in the ‘gilded lobby of Trump Tower’ where he ‘angrily assert[ed] that so-called alt-left activists were just as responsible for the bloody confrontation as marchers brandishing swastikas, Confederate battle flags, anti-Semitic banners and “Trump/Pence” signs.’
In actuality, the ‘so-called alt-left activists’ – as well as the local authorities – were solely responsible for the confrontation. And the President was actually being diplomatic with his comments.
The Times writers quote the leftist Democrat Governor of Virgina:
“Neo-Nazis, Klansmen and white supremacists came to Charlottesville heavily armed, spewing hatred and looking for a fight,” Mr. McAuliffe said…
Nothing in this statement is true: no one in the gathering came ‘heavily armed’, there wasn’t ‘spewing hatred’, none came ‘looking for a fight’. The chant was ‘We Will Not Be Replaced’ – it was a message of self-preservation by young Euro-Americans whose traditions have been under attack for decades now. They came to Charlottesville looking to be heard in a city which intends to erase the memory of American history. If one was simply going on what the governor spewed one would think that a giant gang of storm-troopers invaded Charlottesville in complete body armor carrying Heckler & Koch assault rifles backed up by M58 Wolf armored personnel carriers.
It would be laughable if it wasn’t so dark.
But none of this is as telling as this paragraph:
No word in the Trump lexicon is as tread-worn as “unprecedented.” But members of the president’s staff, stunned and disheartened, said they never expected to hear such a voluble articulation of opinions that the president had long expressed in private. National Economic Council Chairman Gary Cohn and Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin, who are Jewish, stood by uncomfortably as the president exacerbated a controversy that has once again engulfed a White House in disarray.
This returns us to the top of this post.
Just as President Trump has found himself in a White House conflict concerning foreign policy, now he is in a situation of conflict with the same elements regarding the domestic front. And what is it that dismayed these Jews…?
“You had a lot of people in that group that were there to innocently protest and very legally protest.”
According to the article:
…Mr. Trump’s aides persuaded him to moderate his message by assigning explicit blame for the violence on far-right agitators, which led to a stronger denunciation of hate groups…
…aides, including Mr. Trump’s new chief of staff, John F. Kelly, pressed him to make another public statement. Mr. Trump’s daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner urged him to take a more moderate stance, according to two people familiar with the situation. But as with so many other critical moments in Mr. Trump’s presidency, the two were on vacation in Vermont.
Grudgingly, Mr. Trump agreed.
“Racism is evil,” the president said…
Always the ‘aides’ telling Trump what he should do. One is left nearly breathless when the New York Times insinuates that his Jewish convert daughter and Jewish son-in-law need to be at the White House in order to keep the President in line.
Notice that the line is that these ‘aides’ and handlers are all portrayed as pushing for Trump to be more ‘moderate’ – Trump couldn’t have been more moderate that the position he took in his first address to the press after the fiasco in Charlottesville. As a matter of fact, he was already taken to task for that and was accused of being too ‘moderate’.
But here is when Trump finally asserts himself:
No sooner had he delivered the Monday statement than he began railing privately to his staff about the press. He fumed to aides about how unfairly he was being treated, and expressed sympathy with nonviolent protesters who he said were defending their “heritage,” according to a West Wing official.
On Tuesday afternoon:
“Alt-left” groups were also “very, very violent,” Mr. Trump said early in his exchange with reporters.
Here are quotes from Trump during the Tuesday press conference not mentioned in the Times article:
Excuse me, what about the alt-left that came charging at the, as you say, the alt-right. Do they have any semblance of guilt?
Let me ask you this. What about the fact they came charging — that they came charging, with clubs in their hands, swinging clubs? Do they have any problem? I think they do.
I will tell you something. I watched those very closely, much more closely than you people watched it, and you have- You had a group on one side that was bad and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent. And nobody wants to say that, but I’ll say it right now. You had a group, you had a group on the other side that came charging in without a permit and they were very, very violent.
Those people, all of those people- excuse me. I’ve condemned neo-Nazis. I’ve condemned many different groups, but not all of those people were neo-Nazis, believe me. Not all of those people were white supremacists, by any stretch…
Those people were also there because they wanted to protest the taking down of a statue of Robert E. Lee. So … Excuse me. And you take a look at some of the groups and you see and you’d know it if you were honest reporters — which in many cases you’re not. But many of those people were there to protest the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee. So, this week it’s Robert E. Lee. I noticed that Stonewall Jackson is coming down. I wonder is it George Washington next week and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You know, you really do have to ask yourself where does it stop? But they were there to protest- excuse me. you take a look the night before, they were there to protest the taking down of the statue of the Robert E. Lee. Infrastructure question.
President Trump stood his ground repeating these facts over and over again – the entire ‘press’ conference was simply absurd. In court there is a rule, ‘asked and answered’ – there should be such a thing with the controlled ‘press’ and their ‘conferences’.
Of course the New York Times had to insert another quote from the tribe:
“It really did demand a statement at the very beginning,” said Mr. [Eric] Cantor, who is Jewish. He added that efforts by the president to equate the actions of the counter-protesters, however violent they may have been, with the neo-Nazis and the driver of the car that murdered a protester were “unacceptable.”
“There’s no moral equivalence,” Mr. Cantor said.
Cantor’s correct, there is ‘no moral equivalence’ – no moral equivalence to the fact that the violence was instigated by the ‘alt-left’ exactly as Trump tried to assert with Presidential diplomacy.
In the 8 August FPP post mentioned earlier it was suggested that as Trump is faced with opposing forces within his camp, he’s in a position where he cannot rely upon ‘advisors’ but only what is in his mind and heart.
In this instance the President chose to speak on behalf of Truth. He was willing to accept the fallout wherever it may go. He stood on his own as a courageous President of the United States of America.
As to be expected, those who rely on lies and deception have become infuriated. The ‘aides’ and the handlers who have insinuated themselves into The White House could not control a man whose pride – and conscience – had taken enough.
Trump chose to be his own man. Trump chose to be Presidential. Trump chose Truth over lies.
How refreshing is that for a US President to do?
