Stop crying wolf

March 16, 2019

You’d assume from President Trump’s Twitter feed that he doesn’t need any help coming up with controversial statements to make his critics’ eyeballs pop out in outrage. So why do Democrats and media outlets (pardon my redundancy) think they need to keep making up things he never said to get themselves riled up over?

To cite just a few of the most famous ones: He was first branded as a racist for calling all Mexican immigrants drug dealers, murderers and rapists...except he never said that. He said our lax border security was letting in some illegal entrants, like MS-13 gang members, who are drug dealers, murderers and rapists. That’s unarguably true, but too hard to get outraged over.

Likewise, he was accused of being sympathetic to white supremacists by saying there were “fine people” on both sides of the riots in Charlottesville. But if you read the whole quote, you can see he wasn’t talking about the riots or the alt-right, he was talking about people on both sides of the debate over whether to remove Confederate war monuments.

And this week, we have another example. No, despite what you heard on over a dozen media outlets, Trump did not call for his supporters to use violence against political opponents. At the link is the full quote, with some examples of hysterical media misrepresentations of it.

https://www.breitbart.com/the-media/2019/03/15/14-media-outlets-spread-hoax-trump-calling-violence-breitbart-interview/

Ironically, some of these outlets have no problem ignoring or condoning leftist Antifa violence against Trump supporters. Some of them are even being sued for promoting another false narrative that resulted in death threats against innocent Trump supporters.

I understand how tempting it is to deliberately misquote Trump in the most negative way possible. It gets clicks and views from the rabid Trump haters that are the target audience. Plus they think it hurts Trump’s ability to enact his agenda and to get reelected. Besides, it’s just so much fun blowing a gasket railing against Trump. The problem is, more and more Americans are tiring of hearing the left cry wolf 24/7/365. They’re tuning out in droves.

I know that no young Democrat would dare listen to a capitalist but they should heed the words of Danny DeVito’s character, Larry the Liquidator, in the movie “Other People’s Money.” Explaining how the last buggy whip company left in business must have made the best buggy whip you ever saw, he says, “You know the surest way to go broke? Keep getting an increasing share of a shrinking market.”

The media are fighting so hard for the waning attentions of a dwindling audience of diehard Trump haters that they are willing to destroy their own reputations by repeating easily disproven hoaxes. If the idea is to torpedo Trump’s career, they’re aiming their torpedoes in the wrong direction. At this rate, if the defamation lawsuits don’t bankrupt them, the distrust they’ve earned with their buggy Trump whips will.

    I also see the left and their fake claims about PRESIDENT TRUMP = And it is getting annoying almost everything told them is based on misinformation given them by fake news outlets = I present my case to the delusional ones and attempt to correct what is known by them = mostly it is all pulled out of context or just plain ignorance of logic = we all must stand our ground and be well informed = I strongly know in my heart our God has his hands on our dear president = May you and your daughter SARA have my blessings .

    I am very angry about the democrats voting to let illegal aliens have the right to vote in our elections. This should be a crime. If your not a US citizen you can not vote. Period!!! Also spending millions of tax payer dollars as a give away to people that entered our country illegally is also a crime against the citizens of our country. Start a bill to stop this insanity.

    Hey, Governor,
    I'm a Christian ghostwriter with 24 books to my credit over my 30-yr career. I've got a book idea that we could collaborate on. Can we get together in person to discuss? Have your agent call me, pls, or at least have the reader of this message call me. I think this could be a blockbuster, combining faith and politics/pop culture. I've handled a few bestsellers in my time, so it's worth a few minutes of your time, believe me.
    My cell 8 4 3 . 4 4 2 1 3 9 7 . I live in Charleston SC, and often travel to Nashville. Let's get acquainted, brother, and see if the Lord is working. I believe He is. ??

    I will admit to not listening or watching the Left leaning media. At my age I just don't have time to listen to malarkey. But what I do hear sounds as if they are responding to what they wish he had said.
    Isn't that pretty much like appointing Mueller to find a crime they could use to impeach our President. The idea of deciding someone must be guilty and appointing a prosecutor to find an appropriate crime is backwards from our Constitution.

    I use to be a Democrat years ago. Now I couldn't be one because I'm a Christian disagree with most of what they stand for. Most of them don't seem to have any common sense. They are the ones driving a wedge between people with their lies and cheating. But the more they try to run President Trump down the more I like him. He's trying to do what the people wanted him to do and I know we need a wall or someway to keep the illegals from crossing the border. Do we need it? Just ask anyone that lives near the border. Mr. Huckaby I like your newsletters and commentary. Thanks for standing for the truth.

    President Trump needs a promotion dept. NOW! Trump needs to run TV commercials or use some other promotion tool in order to accurately inform CNN and MSNBC viewers of his accomplishments, his priorities, why they are important for the people and the country and what is required to accomplish them. I KNOW FOR A FACT CNN AND MSNBC VIEWERS DO NOT KNOW THE GOOD THINGS TRUMP HAS ACCOMPLISHED AND THE GOOD HE INTENDS TO ACCOMPLISH. Just think, what CNN and MSNBC report about Trump is in the negative, deliberately. Had Trump months ago, when everyone was aware approximately 90 percent of the news about Trump coming from two major cable news networks was deliberately negative and false, successfully fought against the false negativity the republicans would not have lost the House. The 90 percent of negative, false reporting about Trump keeps Trump's approval rating in the 40's. To win in 2020, Trump needs a smart "promotion" program beginning now to overcome CNN's and MSNBC's false, negative reporting. Fox News alone cannot deliver a win for Trump in 2020, Trump talking to his base at his rallies will not give Trump a win in 2020.

    If the Democrats would stop looking through party glasses & see the facts clearly then good results would happen. People are too focused on 1 thing & not seeing the whole picture. President Trump is doing what all of Congress needs to do their job of serving the people of this country. Thank you Mr. President. You are the President of the people. God bless you!

    The mainstream media has utter hatred and contempt for President Trump, right along with the Democrats. Today, the mainstream media even tied in the tragic killings in New Zealand to those on the right or extremist as with this shooter in New Zealand, buying into Trumps rhetoric about immigrants, invasions, etc. Unbelievable !!
    So sick and tired of the mainstream media. When the President once said that the mainstream media was the enemies of the people he was exactly right. The same is true of the Democrats. They are against America with all their ideology and agenda there is no other reasonable conclusion. The political party of the Democrats is craving to continue Obama's destroy America agenda and continue what they had hoped Hillary would also do. The Democrats are displaying not only utter hatred for the President, but also our country, because they are working for anything that doesn't align with America, its Constitution, its values, its strengths, etc.
    Let us hope and pray that in 2020 that a huge majority of America will turn out in massive droves to vote against the Democrats. Us conservative, Christian, patriotic Americans have to get out and vote in massive numbers even greater than 2016 to vote against all Democrats and their cheating, fraudulent ways that they will truly pursue in order to win elections. One of readers commented on all the ads that the Republicans need to run during the next campaign and she was so right. If they don't fight now and show America what the Democrats stand for, it may well be too late for our beloved country. Wake up America while there is still time. Wake up and do something Republicans, while there is still time !!!

    We are grateful he veto’d and declared National Emergency. It is hapoening world-wide, the NWO globalists interfering, in NZ ( very similar to Las Vegas shooting, with one fall guy) Brexit in UK and Tony interfering / influencing people... like Obama following the President's trips overseas and meeting the leaders...to ??
    Now this is a big concern, it will affect whether God's blessing continious, or not.. very important choice ahead!

    You are exactly on point here with your article, "Stop Crying Wolf". Even the most rabid of Leftists are becoming immune to the constant bleatings of the blather mouthed Trump naysayers. Reality simply has not set in with these media bloviators. Reality - Trump is no racist. Reality - Trump is no anti-Semite. Reality - Trump has set the economy's growth afire. Reality - Trump will be reelected in 2020. I pray that this great nation continues to embrace the man and politics that President Trump has promoted - one of inclusion (more blacks and Hispanics working than ever), one of reason (spending the equal of the nation's GDP ten times over to reduce - MAYBE - global temperatures one-half a degree F over ten years for maybe six months is not reasonable), and one of national pride (Americans are once again proud to be Americans). Thank you, President Trump for taking the slings and arrows of the misguided and ill informed Great Unwashed.

    I agree and the media has so many people believing everything they say not what Trump actually says. I don’t do Facebook but I read opinion columns on Chattanooga . Com. I live here in Soddy Daisy Tn. I finally posted my own opinion asking for Prayer for our country because of the divide that is in our country. Of course someone posted about prayers and kumbaya . I felt like I put it out there for the ones reading to give the president a chance. How would they feel if they got a new job and was doing everything they were supposed to do in that job and there was always someone there putting them down for it. You can read the post at Chattanooga.com and see how quickly some posted the exact lies that you are speaking about in this column. When they can put down prayer I really feel that there is no amount of anyone explaining the truth to the ones that believe what the media is putting out there. This country needs prayer more than anything.

    I enjoy your perspective on the events of the day ,,Keep it up . I also watch OAN ( One America News ) and find it very interesting ..Most other networks won't broadcast anything but negative things about President Trump . Do you know much about the news that OAN broadcasts ?? Is it accurate ? I hope Trump gets the Wall/Fence built soon and I hope the voters replace a whole bunch of Congressmen , Many have stayed much too long and think they own the country and we are their source on money to do with as THEY please , instead of SERVING the PEOPLE as they were elected to do . ( sorry for the rant )

    The Democrats are so tied up and consumed with destroying Mr. Trump and the Trump administration, relatives, associates and basically anyone that knew him back to kindergarten that they are now looking past the 2020 elections to 2024. With the Justice Democrats (thank you for that video) and the uncontrollable House speaker two steps behind the Democrats there is no move toward helping America and we will be in a stalemate of obstruction for four more years. Luckily, Mr. Trump will plug on and get things done for the country he loves...America.

    Those of us on the Right side of being Americans know how twisted the Democrats are and getting even worse in their ideology and violence. It is a matter of History the Democrats have always just done the opposite of Republicans for political sake and nothing else. Their policies have always ended in disaster for the American people. They implement laws and policies with no regard for long term ramifications and when they don't work they just blame the other side. Now they even vote against having a secure Country with defendable borders and adequate immigration laws. They also disregard the very laws they have made when they don't agree with their ever changing ideology. If you don't believe in something to the very end you don't believe in anything but yourself and that doesn't do any good for anyone but you and we are suppose to be a United States Of America. We are in fact a Group of Individual States on the North American Continent. People coming here only partially assimilate but still retain much of their own birth countries culture and that leaves very little room for the American culture or even room for patriotism..

    Last week I spent a week with Liberal in laws so liberal Fox news was not allowed in the house we were able to speak about polices for about 8 minutes then the no more talk about Trump or his policies. came out I bring this up because quite a few of his and her dislikes about Trump were from 20 to 25 years ago and just as you mentioned in your edition they misunderstood what he had said. My wife pointed out facts to them they just could not and would not believe and she thinks Trump is an idiot because Donald will say some things that do not help him and I also agree however I simply say wrong statement. I agree the policies he wants to put in place is very good for our people and the country. I have mentioned also the left uses Trump to tear America apart our Congress and Senate have had 30 plus tears to fix Immigration, Tax reform; regulations reform, Trade, China ,North Korea name a few more they ignored to fix look what has happened in the 2 years Donald been at the control if the Administration had just 50% less resitence from the Left look at maybe healthcare could be fixed by now Oh by the way thanks John McCain for your thumbs down brilliant move do you think he may be part of the problem; the left is putting into play ways to turn this country into California misguided misfitted nitwits and just plain evil people that want to kill our babies but house and give healthcare to murderers, rapist and if they can release them into the public so they can can get to the decent Human beings we have left seems to be the goal. Great Education System thanks Liberals its working!!!!!
