The simple answer is an emphatic “No”. However, in an age where simpletons have been indoctrinated to ignore evidence, substance and context, the answer requires elucidation.
Unless the reader has been living in complete isolation during the last few days, he has become aware of the mass hysteria centered on President Donald Trump’s summit with Russian autocrat Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland. According to the legacy media and many other subversives within and without government, Trump’s meeting with Putin and his subsequent remarks during Monday’s press conference are proof positive that he is a traitor, a reincarnation of Benedict Arnold.
The manufactured outrage specifically centered around a response the president gave to a loaded question from an Associated Press reporter on whether he believes US intelligence services or Putin as to whether or not Russia attempted to influence American elections during 2016. Trump responded:
“So let me just say that we have two thoughts. You have groups that are wondering why the FBI never took the server. Why haven’t they taken the server? Why was the FBI told to leave the office of the democratic national committee? I’ve been wondering that. I’ve been asking that for months and months and I’ve been tweeting it out and calling it out on social media. Where is the server? I want to know, where is the server and what is the server saying? With that being said, all I can do is ask the question. My people came to me, Dan Coats came to me and some others and said they think it’s Russia.
I have President Putin. He just said it’s not Russia. I will say this. I don’t see any reason why it would be, but I really do want to see the server. But I have confidence in both parties. I really believe that this will probably go on for a while, but I don’t think it can go on without finding out what happened to the server. What happened to the servers of the Pakistani gentleman that worked on the DNC? Where are those servers? They’re missing. Where are they? What happened to Hillary Clinton’s emails? 33,000 emails gone — just gone. I think in Russia they wouldn’t be gone so easily. I think it’s a disgrace that we can’t get Hillary Clinton’s 33,000 emails. So I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that president Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today. And what he did is an incredible offer. He offered to have the people working on the case come and work with their investigators, with respect to the 12 people. I think that’s an incredible offer. Okay thank you.”
Note that the media (including Fox News) have almost exclusively focused on the phrases I emphasized above, decontextualizing them in order to give the appearance that Trump is somehow unpatriotic and/or beholden to Putin, advancing the notion that he trusts Putin more than US intelligence agencies. Yet, within its proper context it is clear that Trump never denied that meddling occurred, only that the real collusion wasn’t between Trump and Russia (which is the official media narrative) but instead between the Obama administration, the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee in order to deny Trump the presidency.
(Rhetorical question for the reader: After most of the conspiracy by Obama, Susan Rice, John Brennan, James Clapper, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strozk, Lisa Page and others has been brought to light, what is Trump supposed to declare? That he unconditionally trusts and loves our intelligence apparatus when the same system was being weaponized against him?)
Surely, Trump’s poor lexicon doesn’t help him and the press continuously exploits it. Then again, the media is so sleazy that it can make the most eloquent, substantive, thoughtful person appear like Beelzebub himself through decontextualization, misrepresentation, omission and other forms of prevarication. In other words, Trump cannot be right. Make no mistake, this is by design.
Consider the following list and compare it to Trump’s actions on Russia to decide if Trump is a Russian stooge or if it is the press that is advancing a false narrative about the president:
– In 1945 at Yalta, Franklin Delano Roosevelt turned over more than half of Europe to the murderous Josef Stalin in exchange for promises to help stave off Hitler and the Nazis.
– In 1956, Hungary attempted to throw off the shackles imposed by the invading Soviets, inspired by America’s Radio Free Europe broadcasts. After civilians defeated the occupying force, the Hungarians called out to Dwight Eisenhower and his administration for help. Three weeks past and no aid was sent. Hungary was absorbed yet again. It was later revealed that a cable was sent from Eisenhower’s State Department to Yugoslavia’s dictator on Friday, November 2, 1956 which read, “The Government of the United States does not look with favor upon governments unfriendly to the Soviet Union on the borders of the Soviet Union”.
– In 1961-62, John F. Kennedy capitulated to Nikita Khrushchev during the Bay of Pigs Invasion and Cuban Missile Crisis. US trained, Cuban militias never received the air support promised them under a plan approved by both Eisenhower and Kennedy, betraying them to the murderous Castro. In time, satellite imagery demonstrated that the Soviets continued to export missiles to Cuba and that the command had been given for US ships to surround the island and blockade freedom forces from reentering the island in order to remove Castro. (For further information, read None Dare Call it Treason by John A. Stormer.)
– In 1984, Massachusetts senator Ted Kennedy reached out to the Soviets seeking help to defeat Reagan in the general election.
– During his presidency, Obama allowed Putin to invade Georgia, Eastern Ukraine and annex Crimea. He also removed US missile defense systems from Poland and the Czech Republic at the behest of Putin. It was also disclosed that months before the election, a “stand down” order was given to Obama’s cybersecurity coordinator against Russian attacks.
Although there are myriad other treasonous actions that can be detailed, the aforementioned should be sufficient for the reader to ask why the press never chose to vehemently denounce these things as much as they’ve chosen to vilify Trump when no evidence of collusion exists.
Now, consider Trump’s actions towards Russia:
– Imposed tougher sanctions on Russian banks and companies
– Improved NATO resistance against possible Russian aggression
– Increased the US military budget
– Returned missile defense systems to Poland and the Czech Republic
– Ended the arms embargoes imposed by Obama towards Ukraine and Georgia
– Ended the ban on US oil exports so as to diminish Russia’s petrol dominance
Considering this list (which is not exhaustive), Vladimir Putin is most assuredly singing “What a friend I have in Trumpinski”!
This proves that the US press aides Communism by suppressing its true advancement from its “reporting”, while causing false alarm when it is actually being impeded, all in the hopes of sedating the public when it marches on.
Trump’s no traitor. The media…that’s a different story.
