Why Trump thinks that banning them will do him any good, when it will only result in these publications NOT running their articles by him prior to publication, clearly demonstrates how his thin skin makes him debilitatingly short-sighted. One wonders how this cretinism would play out in a geopolitical situation that’s actually serious?
Further, Trump has vowed that once elected President, we would open Federal libel laws, to make it easier to sue such outlets as the Washington Post and the New York Times. As the TYT host says, “This is unprecedented. Presidential candidates don’t ban news outlets and threaten to sue them once they become President!” If we thought that the lack of transparency and enmity between the Executive Branch and the press (aka “the Fourth Estate”) was bad during the George W Bush Administration, how are we going to like the Commander-in-Chief suing newspapers all over the place? Talk about “Unpresidential”! He’s acting like a private citizen and failing to grasp why US libel laws do not protect public officials. It’s for very good reason that they don’t! It’s practically all we’ve got left, after the Fascist depredations of the Patriot Acts!
It’s ironic that not even President Nixon, who was taken down and removed from office as a result of reports originally published in the Washington Post, he never banned that newspaper from covering him!
But it gets a lot more complicated…
TYT is supposed to be an “alternative news” channel but I think it’d be more accurately described as a “mainstream editorializing service”. The offendingWashington Post headline cited in this clip referred to statements which Trump has made, suggesting that President Obama was somehow “in on” the Orlando Massacre. The article includes Trump’s comments, railing against Obama, about how he “can’t even mention the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism.’ There’s something going on. It’s inconceivable. There’s something going on.”
Many readers of ForbiddenKnowledgeTV.net would agree. Not one of dozens of readers who has responded to my articles about the Orlando Massacre (which have avoided calling it a staged false flag event) believe that the story went down as officialdom is portraying. Most readers and thousands of YouTube activists believe that Orlando is yet another in a long line of false flag events, staged by elements within the Obama Administration for the purpose of passing gun legislation, which would ultimately gut the Second Amendment of the US Constitution. Why do so many Americans feel this way? Because mass shootings in the US have increased 700% since Barack Obama took office, that’s why!
However, I’d say that these actions have more likely been orchestrated by elements within the Deep State and that Obama hasn’t had any control in these events.
The US is in the midst of a sad and unfortunate election, in which both candidates for the Presidency are completely detestable.
My reserved support for Trump is a protest vote against the utterly corrupt US political class, which largely exists to feed the US War Machine. As disgusting as are some of the things that come out of his mouth, I think Trump is not (yet) controlled by the true planetary evil that is the Deep State, which has hijacked the US Government.
The Deep State has multiple tiers but its most public faces today are those of the Neoconservatives (Neocons), who have unrelentingly pushed an agenda of Perpetual War since the beginning of the century and who have recently reignited the Cold War with Russia, which threatens to escalate into very hot, thermo-nuclear war.
As Secretary of State, Hillary has repeatedly demonstrated that she is a total flunky of the Neocon agenda. (She has also expressed that she is not against the idea of a “limited nuclear war”).
I’m talking about the war machine, which has unjustly devastated so many countries worldwide in the Post-WWII Era, especially the Muslim countries over the past 15 years. I believe that this agenda, at its core is less driven by the impossible quest to maintain a unipolar world, where the US dominates the world stage with its military than it is driven by the naked greed of war profiteering: the looting of the US Treasury by US defense contractors (with kickbacks to the Neocons).
The Neocons hate Trump. Trump has repeatedly said that he would like to see other countries share the burden of defending the “Free World”. In other words, he’d like to see some of the money that’s been lining the pockets of US defense contractors to go, instead toward “Making America Great Again.” I wish him luck with that. Europeans polled last week expressed their biggest fear to be increased militarization. They also responded that they do not fear Russia.
It’s easy to see the complete geopolitical disconnect between the Neocons (and their flunky, Hillary) and the rest of the planet!
Europeans aren’t worried about Russia. Nevertheless, the US has 30,000 troops currently deployed in the Baltic States that ring Russia’s western border. I believe that the true reason for this policy is the unfathomable, short-sighted treasonous greed of the criminal Neocons.
Private defense contractors in the US make billions of dollars from the US Treasury, by killing tens of thousands of Arabs every year. They’re apparently looking to expand their market share.
This is US Taxpayer money that would be much better spent on improving the infrastructure and other things to improve the life of Americans, who’s money is being squandered in the most vile and depraved way imaginable.
(By the way, this clip has is Rated “F”, due to the Nuyorkese which slips in from time to time. People there just talk like that but it’s very offensive some, so I’m giving those of you whose precious ears cannot tolerate casual F-bombs a fair warning, to avoid watching this clip).
