Everything Is Trump’s Fault Is Fake News At Its Worst

The establishment media continues to be befuddled by their falling market share and polls that say Americans don’t trust them anymore. They need look no further than these three stories from the past week and the false narratives they promote for the answer to their problems of loss of trust and market share.

Never letting the outrage go to waste

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

The left is punching every button to make sure it does not lose control of the story. You don’t have to like Donald Trump to see this as the classic bigotry Mr. Soros claims to decry, painting the millions of Americans who voted for Mr. Trump as no better than Nazis. Hillary Clinton called them “deplorables.” I call what the package bombers are doing nothing less than attempted murder, and I hope they catch them and hang ‘em high. But George Soros flies the false flag of the billionaire bigot.

The Washington Post Smears Trump Over the Pipe Bombings

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

With their endless charges of racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia America's elite has let Trump's "base" know what it thinks of them. And at his rallies, where Trump's mockery of that elite and its media allies evokes hoots and cheers, Middle America is telling our cultural and political establishment what it thinks of them. Before we were a democracy, we were a republic. And we were always more than just a polity. We were a people and a nation. Today we seem to be two countries and two peoples.

The Pipe-Bombs Story: Another Example of Why No One Trusts the Media

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

At this point, there is no evidence whatsoever that provocative words from the president had anything to do with the sending of bombs. As we often observe after terrorist attacks, everyone needs to take a deep breath until facts begin to emerge. The investigators are doing their jobs. Chances are we will know soon enough who is actually responsible for the pipe bombs. Then we probably won’t need speculation about motive and incitement . . . though there will be no shortage of it, anyway.

Fake Bombs -- Fake News

Strange is how the bombs seem to be addressed to people who don’t open their own mail, was this an elaborate plot to kill George Soros’ butler or get the mail room clerk at CNN? At this point in the investigation we don’t know who is responsible or what their motives are – all we can do is wait for law enforcement to do their work and for the evidence to reveal the perpetrator.

After bombing attempts, all must agree that violence and terror have no place in politics

Rep. Steve Scalise, Fox News

If we are to stem the tide of violence and violent rhetoric, then it is crucial we all do our part to break down the divisions in our country and reach out to those with different beliefs than our own. America is better than these acts of threats, intimidation and violence against people based on their political beliefs. We are better than this, and we will move beyond this. But now is a time to confront these divisions and remember that what makes America great is that we celebrate our differences, and ultimately we settle them at the ballot box.
