Truth in Journalism:
Trump visit to UK trumps Mainstream Media Censorship, Fake News activities
Critical thinking skills.This is good training in discerning truth from deception. The mainstream media is totally debunked as a reliable news source. ~C.A. Davidson
Great Week for Trump, Bad Week for Drive-By Media
RUSH: Despite the best efforts of CNN, New York Times, the Washington Post to portray this as something it wasn’t, the queen was utterly charmed by Donald Trump.
Fake News: The Protests that didn’t happen
June 3, 2019
RUSH: All right. So here, it’s everything, it’s Fox News, PMS, NBC, CNN, they’re all breathlessly waiting. So somebody told ’em that massive protests are scheduled. If massive protests are scheduled, they can’t be spontaneous. They’ve gotta be bought, paid for, and planned.
They all bought it, they all believed it, they all assumed it was gonna happen, and then today came, and there weren’t any. There were zilch, zero, nada. There weren’t any protests. Nobody showed up! And we have a random act of journalism on CNN. They actually told the truth about it. Some reporter named Nick Patton Walsh.
RUSH: Now, Donald Trump in the United Kingdom. Big, big mistake. Now we found that… Remember the story we had…? I think it was Monday. This is Wednesday, so it was Monday.
The media has been working overtime to manufacture a spat and a disagreement and a state of dislike between the queen and Donald Trump. And while doing that, they were holding out hope and promoting and warning everybody about massive anti-Trump protests that didn’t happen — and the queen loves Trump! You can see it in the pictures. The queen is charmed by the president and actually asked him to come back to our country as soon as you can, on his departure. You can see it in all the pictures.
Despite the best efforts of CNN, New York Times, the Washington Post to portray this as something it wasn’t, the queen was utterly charmed by Donald Trump. Melania Trump was an absolute star on this trip. And the photos of her and the president chatting… There was a dinner. I guess they hosted a dinner last night for Prince Charles and the Duchess of “Cornwallis,” whatever, Camilla, and are waiting for ’em to show up.
And Trump and Melania are standing there like a married couple of many years chatting and laughing with each other and winking and nodding and so forth. It was utterly a completely different picture than what you get from the Drive-By Media. (impression) “Melania can’t wait to get out! Melania’s so embarrassed! Melania worries about her young son growing up with such an ogre.” None of this is true.
The British press, as I say, totally flipped and wrote a bunch of positive stuff about this trip.
RUSH: Yeah. Here it is right here in the U.K. Daily Mail: “‘I hope you come to this country again soon:’ What the Queen told Donald Trump at the end of his state visit as he bid fond farewell to Britain following moving ceremony to salute the heroes of D-Day” 75 years ago. D-Day. You wonder how many young people know about it, what it really was, why it was important. Is it taught anymore?
I’ve been over there twice. I’ve been to the Normandy beaches twice. I’ve been to the cemetery. I’ve been to Pointe du Hoc in France. You see where it happened — and if you have enough information about what happened, it cannot help but move you. The first time I was there was the 50th anniversary. I was there the week after they celebrated it, 25 years ago. It was a moving, moving ceremony that they had. There were even some people still alive who had participated in it, and they were able to participate in the ceremony.
Obama’s gift to the Queen
Do you remember what Obama gave the queen? Let me tell you. He gave the queen an iPod with his speeches recorded on it. Now, we don’t know what the queen — we never saw a public reaction. I will guarantee you — well, I can’t guarantee you, but the odds are the queen laughed and looked at the that iPod, said, “Who does this guy think he is?” Because the queen knew that Obama had no love lost for the Brits. The Brits were colonialists, Obama hated colonialists. And I think the gift of a bunch of speeches was really a diss, in a way. He knew she wasn’t gonna listen to his words. But if she did, I guarantee you the first speeches on there would have been what Obama thought of the Brits. Remember the story about removing the bust of Winston Churchill out of the Oval Office? That story went back and forth, true, false. It did get moved. Not out of the White House, but it was moved out of the Oval Office after Obama was inaugurated.
Trump’s Gift to the Queen. . . Memorializes D-Day and World War I
RUSH: Let me tell you something about the queen. People have forgotten. Let me interrupt you here. Do you guys remember Trump gave the queen a tremendous gift.
“Trump gave the queen a silver and silk poppy brooch from Tiffany & Co. in a custom wood White House jewelry box…
“The poppy symbolizes remembrance for those who died in World War I, though the White House could have chosen the gift for the 75th anniversary of D-Day on Thursday.” He may have had
done it for that reason which, as you know, is tomorrow. “Prince Philip,” the husband of the queen — who is not doing well, folks. These people have remarkable longevity, but nevertheless, Prince Philip is not doing well. “Prince Philip received a personalized Air Force One jacket as well as a first-edition, signed copy of World War II aviator James Doolittle’s autobiography, I Could Never Be So Lucky Again.
“The gifts pointed to the fact that Prince Philip was a pilot and served in World War II, according to Town & Country. According to [Town & Country magazine], these official gift exchanges require consultation with the State Department. The first lady’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham told CNN Melania Trump was ‘very involved with the gift selection,’ alongside the State Department.” So I wanted to get all of that straight.
Two Polls That Are Good News for Trump
RUSH: “Americans View Fake News as a Bigger Problem Than Terrorism.” Holy smokes!
- This has been a very bad week — and it’s only Wednesday — for the Drive-By Media worldwide. Remember the story about the dead North Korean officials that were executed? They’re walking around. They’re alive. They are above ground. As we say on the golf course, “They’re on the right side of the grass.”
Social Media Abuse of Power
- The African-American forklift operator who put together the satirical video of Pelosi appearing to slur her words? And we were told that an enterprising journalist called Facebook and ferreted out the truth, and Facebook just divulged (because the reporter wanted to know) the name of the person that did it. It turns out that the media used convicted felons to dox this guy. We were not told the truth about how his identity was learned.
RUSH: There’s a new poll out, a CNN poll. They are not happy reporting this poll. The upshot of the CNN poll is more than two-thirds of the American people are happy with the economy. (impression) “That… that… that… that…” They got a problem. They’ve got to do something about that at CNN. They’ve been trying to do something about that and they’re obviously failing. Two-thirds happy with the economy.
And then here is a story from the Millennial website called Axios, and this headline is a big win for Trump. It’s a poll from the Pew Research Center. “Americans View Fake News as a Bigger Problem Than Terrorism.”
