Media bias on full display

January 11, 2019

If you listen to the mainstream media, you’d think that Trump’s Oval Office Address on border security Tuesday was a disaster, and we should all listen instead to the wise adults, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, who assure us there is no problem with having a porous border and somewhere between 11 and 30 million people residing in America illegally with more flowing in every day. Seldom has the media narrative been more at odds with public perception, and I’m not just talking about all the memes ridiculing how Pelosi and Schumer looked.

After more than two years of hyperbolic, 24/7 anti-Trump media coverage, viewers who don’t keep up closely with politics were primed to see that the Oval Office had been taken over by a ranting, crazy, hateful, incoherent, Hitler-quoting monster.  Instead, they saw a President who seemed to be thoughtful, soft-spoken and compassionate about the terrible toll that an unsecured border is taking on both Americans and the people risking their lives to sneak in, but firm and resolute about forcing his political opponents to work with him to solve it.  That was such a disconnect from what the media’s been telling them for years that it made it hard to believe anything else they had to say (and considering their transparently partisan - and preemptive - attempts at “fact-checking” him, that was a wise choice.)

Meanwhile, Pelosi and Schumer not only looked like the (barely) reanimated corpses of Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor at the beginning of “Green Acres,” they also came across as people who cared far more about protecting illegal aliens and government workers’ paycheck than protecting Americans from drugs, criminals and terrorism.  They never gave a single reason why they would rather keep the government partially shut down than spend what to them is sofa cushion change on a border security wall that they’ve previously endorsed and funded at far greater levels. 

So don’t believe the predictable media narrative that the Democrats won that debate.  Here’s what they’re trying to ignore:

Last week, a Politico/Morning Consult poll found that 42% of Americans believe there is a “crisis” at our Southern border, and another 37% think it’s at least a serious “problem.” That’s a total of 79% who believe something needs to be done about border security.  Only 12% think it’s neither a crisis nor a problem.  Schumer and Pelosi might have looked like something Dr. Frankenstein manufactured in his lab, but only 12% of Americans swallow their claim that border security is a “manufactured” crisis, no matter how many times the media parrot it for them.  And this poll was taken before the Tuesday speeches!

Want more proof that the media’s desperate pleas to “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!” are falling to persuade Americans? 

Here’s an article by a DACA recipient, pleading with the Democrats to stop being so stubborn, build the wall and work out a deal with Trump so he and the others who were raised here can stay in America.

And here’s how you know the Dems have really crashed and burned with their pointless, transparent, partisan obstinacy: even notoriously Trump-hating Hollywood liberal Cher is telling them to give in and fund the wall already!  When the Democrats have lost Cher, the game is truly over.

    We have an Uphill battle because either the late night comedy relics are feeding the DNC or Vice Versa and since half of the country that are legal voters get their information from Comedians or that Brilliant Crowd that read scripts and live make believe lives, the task Should be easy! Deep in my heart I still believe Trump Is smarter than the top 10 Dim Wits in Congress combined and if his strategy is what I'm assuming the Trap he is laying should be sprung about the time Congress has had time to get home and put on their Bunny Slippers. Then the really good news is another Supreme Justice slot is about to open up. If I have read correctly a sitting Justice can also be Impeached? Is failure to perform your job a misdemeanor or malfeasance?

    If our nation doesn't need a wall to block the " illegals, drug cartel members, sexual preditors, etc.; then could someone explain Pelosi's need for a wall around her home in the state of California?

    I read a small news brief in the Springfield Missouri News-Leader on Wed., where the 9th District Court of Appeals 3 Judges upheld that illegal ummigrants can not own guns. The opinion read partly that illegal immigrants by being here illegally have no regard for the law and areca danger to not only law enforcement but to the general public. Nothing was reported by mainstream media that I saw. Isn’t this the same liberal court in California that the news media reports on opinions that go against President Trump??

    Governor: Ever since the days of Jefferson/Jackson, the Democrat Party has always been, is now and always will be the "Party of The Plantation". Should President Trump fold on our National Security Crisis, continuing to unfold daily along the Southern Border, it will play directly into the progressive hands of the Party of the Planation, which awaited us all, had H. R. Clinton won the 2016 National election. There is a time to stand, a time to bend, and the trick is knowing when to stand your ground. Trump has crossed his Rubicon!

    I am a 9/11 widow and i want a wall. Some of the 9/11 attackers had over-stayed their visasvwhich made them illegals. But no one in our givt cared to know who they were or why theyvwere here. Or remove them. We are oast time to deal with this ussue befire our people suffer another 9/11. NO ONE is entitled to enter the US. The US is a nation of immigrants but times and needs change. Americans first. This a matter of national security. Build the wall.

    The Seditious Media discredits their profession and themselves daily. And Democrats for self serving motives have tied themselves inexorably to them.

    My wife and I BOTH support President Trump (and have already donated to (what I believe is the largest of the "GoFUNDME" programs) a "BUILD THE WALL "GoFundMe" page!
    In other words, we have "PUT THE MONEY WHERE OUR MOUTHS ARE"!

    Gov. Huckabee, please keep up all the good work that YOU are doing!

    Thank you!

    I cannot believe that Pelosi and Schumer voted for a wall during the Obama Administration. But now, because they are fueled with their hatred of President Trump, they are, along with all of the Democrats, are showing their true colors.

    When I saw Jim Costa of CNN news reporting from the border and heard his narrative, I could not believe that he was actually putting in a plug for President Trump and the wall. Where was his brains...back in New York City. He but all gave the perfect example for having the wall. His words showed the whole world how peaceful and serene that area was with the wall. No immigrants at all. Gee, does one suppose that there were no immigrants trying to illegally cross over into America at his location because of the barrier?

    Thank you Jim Costa for making the case for the wall along the United States southern border.

    Did you catch Rep Steve Cohen, Tn, comparing Trump supporters to the Ku Klux Klan. Pretty BOLD considering the laws being passed to make Americans sign pledges to not boycott Israel or lose their jobs. THE NERVE!

    Would love to hear your thoughts on an article written by Bradlee Dean in an article for Barbwire. Sanctuary State —city another police officer murdered by illegal immigrant —law states Governor, mayor and legislators are legally responsible. Jan 10, 2019.

    The lefts BS about the border being just fine is why Schumer or Pelosi won't go to the border because if they see that they are actually lying to Americans they just might not get re-elected anymore. there are many video's out there that show the real border and how easy it is to cross and not get stopped. Even if the BP know where they cross many times they haven't the men to be in those places 24/7. The left has no policies but hate so they can't possibly tell the truth or they would lose most of their base or at least more than they are already losing.

    Where do they get the percentage points, no one has ever ask me what I think unless it is all the unknown name senders and we do not answer the phone there. I feel there is a much higher percent of Americans do want a stop to the illegals into our country so many of them do not want to do this legally for they are criminals and we do not want them, only CA and NY want them oh and the demarates too for their votes in 2020 I hope we are rid of all the criminals we already have living here before they can vote again. No more freebies to be given out they must work for their own money and pay taxes just like we do.

    I also find it interesting that none of the media bothered to take any polls after Trump's speech and Chuck and Nan's deer in the headlights reply.

    I think you should bring to light the video of Jim Acosta at the wall! He got a lot of laughs about there being nobody trying to get into Texas as he stood along the wall! It was a goof of the best sort!

    As usual, the media are being jerks. It's not Nancy Pelosi, it's NASTY PELOSI! Both she and Chuck Schumer look worthy for a good punch in the face.

    Governor Huckabee it is so obvious that the left, socialist, democrats and their followers including the MSM/Fake News HATE our President more than they love America or the American people. It is all about POWER to them and they will lie, cheat and worse (proven by the Clinton’s) to regain power in Washington. Let’s just call a spade a spade.....everything they believe and endorse goes against everything GOD stands for! We ‘DEPLORABLES’ will stand with President Trump now and during his re-election in 2020 ??????????

    When we lived in Southern California, we experienced so many situations with illegals - both frustrating, humorous and threatening. We held a yard sale and the Hispanic families would arrive and we could see the parents enticing their children to steal some of the items on the tables; some Hispanic families would arrive with 15 packed in a van with bench seats; no back doors; once on the freeway, we saw Hispanics driving a car on the back rims (no tires)........I worked in Aerospace and would walk on the trail near the building on my lunch hour and the gardeners (Hispanics) would come out and stare, etc etc - I reported it to our Security Departement. Our gardener hires Hispanics to help out and some asked if they could live in our garage. I would share more but space here is limited...........

    I have no problem with people coming here legally, but something must be done to shore up our southern border. I agree with President Trump building a wall. And I'm glad that his position during his campaign is more than doing lip service but taking action.

    Pelosi and Schumer could well be Dr. and Mrs Joseph Goebbels, Minister of Propaganda for Nazi Germany in WWII. Repeat the lie constantly and eventually, most people will believe it.
