Trump Blasts "Always Negative" 'Fake News', Threatens To Remove Credentials

Having blasted NBC's 'fake news' over the weekend, and reflecting on CNN's 'fake news' (about Trump not withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal) yesterday...

It appears President Trump is escalating his war of words - and perhaps deeds - against the liberal media.

In a tweet this morning, the president suggested taking away news networks' press credentials over "negative" coverage.

"The Fake News is working overtime. Just reported that, despite the tremendous success we are having with the economy & all things else, 91% of the Network News about me is negative (Fake)," Trump wrote on Twitter.

"Why do we work so hard in working with the media when it is corrupt? Take away credentials?"

This is not the first time Trump has threatened such an action. As The Hill notes, Trump once threatened to remove The Washington Post's press credentials over "dishonest reporting."

And cue the First Amendment rights outcry from a media who denigrate anyone who does not toe the establishment line they have been told to spew.

And cue the Democrats demanding impeachment over Trump trying to "silence the press corps."

Once again it appears Trump may be on the side of the people though as Axios reports that more than four in 10 Americans think the news media's coverage of President Trump is too critical, a level of dissatisfaction that has remained remarkably consistent since Trump took office, according to an Axios/SurveyMonkey poll.

Had he done it first day, he would be singing "I've got 99 problems, but fake news ain't one"...

So, next, what? Leisurely ponder whether companies, institutions that get public money (grants, loans, investments) — and money from the public — shouldn't be considered private, and thus required to respect and enforce freedom of speech, etc.? What a tough call, heh?

A Trumptard is not someone who voted for Trump.

A Trumptard is someone who still is deceived by him.

Remember the frenzy over Obama? People were voting for the guy thinking  that Obama was the embodiment of Abraham Lincoln and Malcolm X. It soon became evident that they were terribly deceived when he rescued all the TBTF banks.  Some said Obama was giving Goldman Sachs enough rope to hang themselves. Obama must be a Jedi!! 

Wrong, he was rescuing his master Rothschild's banks.

The same frenzy happened with Trump. He told Obama to not launch missles at Syria. No foreign wars that will bankrupt USA. End NATO. Bush did 911. The truths that noone had ever said in a campaign.

Well, Trump is doing the opposite of his anti-globalist, nationalist campaign platform. 

Trump must be a Jedi like Obama, or no this time the metaphor is chess. So Trump is playing 4D chess. Trump is doing the opposite of his platform, but he must be our savior? Trump will deceive the Trumptards UNTIL Rothschild decides Trump's usefulness is over. 

I am betting he will be the fall guy for the Petrodollar collapse, maybe the implementation of a globalist currency, maybe Police State ticklers like curfews.

The next Rothschild President of the US will be a Democrat that can really focus on fucking the collapsed USA with draconian Domestic Programs that will completely ignore the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. Likely, a Soros-like army of young public schooled snowflakes will form under a new organization that will police all behavior public and private.

These are the enemy's plans, but life never unfolds as planned.

The solution is difficult but simple, get rid of Rothschild's dual Lucifarian Zionist Monsters.

End the Fed Worldwide. End Israel. End Rothschild bloodline.

 

Update:

Down votes from Lucifarians or Rothschild friends and family?

Truth and the Republic. Will you abandon the Rothchild's dual monsters that control the Republic?

Don't remain in the traitor's camp.

Jews don't realize that their Talmud is Babylonian Black Majik and that their god is Rothschild's patron god Lucifer.

End the Fed Worldwide. End Lucifarian Israel.

God will give Christian Palestinians their land back.

He has an opinion that doesn't fit with your worldview, so he must be in the propaganda business?

Tell me, how does removing the US from the Iran deal benefit the US? How does it benefit Europe? How does it benefit Israel? See the pattern? Ignore what they say, and look at what they do. I know you will tell me that this is just to renegotiate, to get a better deal, but better for whom? As I understand it (and there is little commentary on the details of this deal to actually have any data), the problem is with Iran's very successful balistic missiles, which have nothing to do with nukes and everything to do with Israel. Iran is fully in compliance in every way, but who gives a shit about that?

Also Saudi needing a high oil price, probably half a dozen pipe-lines, Lebensraum for the tinfoil hat wearers, and anything else you can think of, but the only hard info I have about the deal neding reworking is relating to including Iranian missiles, all the rest is speculation. Would love to have any other info if there is any.

He literally said he was a messenger. Messengers don't just appear from nowhere. He said "don't kill the messenger" when his post was challenged. That is bullshit. If you are going to come in here and post your opinion, then do so, and be prepared to face the consequences.

>but better for whom?

America first. Others come after that. Peace in the middle east is in America's long term best interests.

Be careful of the Kabuki theatre with Trump's adversaries. Sure, some of it is real Khazarian Mafia turning on themselves as they lose worldly power.

But some is pure BS as when Zionist ISIS threatens Zionist CNN.

Are you still in the camp of Fed bad, Israel good? The same Israel that launched a cruise missle from a Dolphin Class Submarine into the Pentagon on 911?

Both are Zionist Rothschild monsters and both serve Rothschild's patron god Lucifer.

These people are not reporters and they are not the press. They are propagandists masquerading as press. They are political operatives of the Democrat Party fully funded by oligarchs with a left wing agenda. As a result, Trump should ban the offenders to include but not limited to the following: CNN, NBC, ABC, MSNBC, BBC, Telemundo, NY Times, Washington Post, Huffington Post.

Actually, no. Trump should simply re-instate limitations on press monopoly ownership. There is no way 95% of the MSM should be in the hands of just 6 companies. It is a crime against human freedom.

Bill Klingon's Telecommunications Act is largely responsible for this obscene concentration of US media into a few deep-state hands. It can also be killed quite effectively, as it should be.

Just break up the trust... and bring independant media back (this is happening anyway).  I suspect Trump will save this master-stroke until after the mid-terms, when the MSM will undoubtedly defile themselves forever in the eyes of the American public.

Watch them all commit mass-hari-kari as their stock gets dumped faster than a street hooker going down on her knees.

 

MAGA bitchez.

Because we all know Iran funds Al Qaida like dotard said yesterday, right? And how Iran attacked the US on 911, right? And how Iran is destablizing Iraq and Syria by fighting ISIS. /s

Sure, Trump, eliminate the lying press that doesn't spread all of your lies. After all, that is one of the classic steps in a collapsing empire. By all means, go ahead because it won't change anything but optics, which is all your ego cares about anyway.

There is clearly little objectivity left in main stream "news"....you have to admit that.  with twitter, the president can go direct to the people.   No need to go through the hate filter of the left.

Good point on twitter.  No one with more than enough brain cells to run autonomic systems could argue straightly that the MSM is anything but nonsense at this point.  That said, threatening to suspend credentials?  Playing right into their playbook.  You are the President of the Toxic States of America sir.  You just have to deal with it.  Laugh it off shrug it off.  Point out the fake news and bitch moan and complain.  Thats fine.  The answer to bad or false speech is always more speech not less.  Let the libtards have their fun.  Doing anything that smacks of curtailing rights just feeds their sick narrative though.
