The Trump presidency is benefiting America in many ways. Among them is exposing liberals for whom they really are – partisan extremists who apparently despise Donald Trump more than they love their own country.

I was certainly not a fan of President Obama, but when he did something good for our nation, albeit seldom, I supported him. Sadly, liberals are choosing to selfishly relinquish our nation’s prosperity rather than support President Trump.

For nearly a year and a half, liberals have done everything from propagating fake Russian collusion to interviewing hookers and adult film stars to discredit this president.

I can’t help but shake my head when I see the mainstream media, as well as local columnists, focusing on Trump’s “womanizing,” his “associations” or his time spent on the golf course as examples of how he isn’t “fit” or “qualified” to be president of the United States.

Where were these liberal cynics during the “porno-presidency” of Bill Clinton, during which no less than eight women accused “slick Willy” of everything from sexual misconduct to rape during his controversial political career? Yet, he’s become iconic to liberal Democrats!

Where were the progressive dissenters during the “socialist presidency” of Barack Obama when questions arose regarding his association with Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorn, unrepentant terrorists with the Weather Underground, an organization responsible for bombings, killings, violent protests and other anti-American activities during the 1960s and 1970s?

And if playing golf is a detriment, please! President Obama was on the fairways soon after tragedies such as the brutal beheading of American journalist James Foley by the Islamic State.

Don’t insult the intelligence of the American people with your double-standard assault against our president. It’s clear your wrath is birthed from your realization Donald Trump is rapidly eradicating the progress liberals enjoyed during the Obama presidency.

And conservatives, “let not your hearts be troubled” as the mainstream media attempt to persuade Americans the Trump administration is in chaos. These are the same left-wing prognosticators who assured you Hillary would win in a landslide.

So, while liberals languish in progressive denial, let’s delight in some of Trump’s accomplishments, shall we?

President Trump gave Americans a huge tax cut by passing GOP tax-reform reducing individual rates as well as corporate rates. Apple Inc. will reportedly bring hundreds of billions of overseas dollars back to the U.S. and pay about $38 billion in taxes, while investing billions on domestic jobs, manufacturing and data centers in coming years, per Fortune.

Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation to the Supreme Court to succeed the late Antonin Scalia was a tremendous win for Americans. This preserved the court’s narrow conservative majority and paved the way to improve that majority moving forward.

Cutting massive government regulation for businesses has truly been a signature win for President Trump, prompting a resurgence in the energy industry. The president also expanded oil drilling in the Arctic and Gulf of Mexico and approved the Keystone XL pipeline rejected by his predecessor.

President Trump empowered our military commanders to effectively deal with the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, rendering them virtually powerless in the region, saving countless lives.

And as our nation’s GDP continues to climb, our economy is surging and jobs are rapidly returning for all demographics.

President Trump may act a little unorthodox at times, but that’s OK. It’s refreshing to have a president unconcerned about being politically correct.

So, despite liberals attempting to distract Americans from his accomplishments, President Trump is proving he loves his country much more than playing politics with feckless swamp dwellers.

Stop taking your hatred of Trump, out on your country!

Mark Caserta: Some mainstream reporting designed to influence people

fake news

 

Do Americans really believe politics is being poisoned by some form of conservative “manipulation” or “influencing” of the mind, perhaps a Jedi mind trick?

Laughably, if conservatives had that ability, we would certainly use “the force” to rehabilitate liberals.

But rest assured, it’s only liberals and the complicit mainstream media with the necessary presence to impact a nation’s sentiment to the degree some would suggest. If not for conservative Christians, Donald Trump would never have been elected president of the United States. Christians are the one demographic liberals will never capture in their exploited net.

Allow me to expound.

Have you ever noticed in multiple liberal news outlets you often hear similar terminology, phrases or “talking points”? This is often a result of shared information in a process called “collective intelligence.”

Collective intelligence, as described in the Financial Times lexicon, is a social media term used to describe a “shared” intelligence or viewpoint that “emerges from collaboration and competition of many individuals” which appears on social networks designed to “solve a problem.” In this case, the problem is conservatism.

In fairness, not all similar stories in the mainstream media are the result of “collaboration” but are simply the result of a shared ideology. Sadly, since the 2016 presidential election, some media outlets even seem willing to bypass certain standards of journalism just to be able to report a “hit piece” on our president or his supporters, only to have to retract the report.

Unfortunately, some retractions are severely “underreported” compared to the original piece.

Please understand, there are some terrific news outlets with some accurate reporting. But the unprincipled ones impact our ability to know who to believe – which is poisoning politics far greater than any “conservative collusion.”

A study by Harvard University’s Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy looked at the media coverage of President Trump, and the results were very telling.

Now, Harvard is certainly not a conservative institution. But the study found that in Trump’s first 100 days in office, the tone of the news coverage of the president was a whopping 80 percent negative compared with 20 percent positive. That, my friend, is truly an attempt to “influence.”

CNN and NBC struck a 93 percent negative tone on their Trump stories, with only 7 percent positive. CBS was third in the anti-Trump race, with a 91 to 9 ratio, per the study. The same study showed Fox News was 52 percent negative to 48 percent positive.

Here’s what to expect in 2018 and beyond:

As the disconnect continues to grow between liberal assertions of Trump’s failures and the reality of his successes for the American people, there will be a huge decline in voters’ perception of the integrity of the mainstream media. The most obvious and embarrassing reporting, to date, was the liberal media’s assertion that Hillary Clinton was a lock for president.

Talk about a liberal media “air ball.”

So, be vigilant and responsive to tactics designed to deceive you.

And understand, conservatives aren’t the ones using smoke and mirrors.
