Marine Veteran Absolutely Annihilates CNN Op-Ed Comparing Media to Soldiers

Published

Marine veteran and deputy editor of The Daily Caller news publication, David Brooks, took CNN — fake news central — to the woodshed over an opinion piece they recently published where they compared being in the media to being a soldier, a comparison that has not sat well with a large portion of the American public.

This, of course, has to do with CNN basically giving a very melodramatic “woe is me” for the way they have been put back in their place by President Trump. News flash, folks. The vast majority of American citizens can’t stand the mainstream media. The problem isn’t Trump. It’s you.

Anyway, check out Brooks’ brutal take down of the piece on “Fox & Friends.”

“Let’s start with the obvious point. The vast majority of journalists didn’t sign up to protect our nation and values,” Brooks said.

The op-ed, written by Notre Dame professor Joseph Holt and titled ‘The Press Isn’t The Enemy, It’s The Protector,” tried to compare members of the media with soldiers in the military.

“This professor wasn’t even talking about journalists who do put themselves in harm’s way. He was talking about White House reporters who go to the press briefings and instead of asking questions, they pull out a soapbox and deliver sermons until Sarah Sanders shuts them down,” Brooks said.

“Then they head to Twitter like it’s their personal diaries and make the stories about themselves,” he added. “To compare the two does a disservice to our service members and those men and women who signed up to protect the nation.”

“A lot of us are very awkward talking about our service,” he said. “Many of us, myself included, never saw themselves in the line of fire. Never had to fire their weapon in combat. But we went to our jobs every day and we tried to do what we could do and leave the military a better placed than they found it.”

“The difference being is that a lot of these journalists out there right now, especially those White House reporters who want to grandstand and make the stories all about themselves, they could take a lesson from that,” Brooks added.

“That’s the problem right now, is that these journalists that are wanting to be thanked that go out and seek the self-adulation, have fragile egos and a self inflated sense of worth,” he concluded.

The media is nothing at all like our soldiers, who, for the most part, actually have integrity, honor, and a desire to do the right thing and defend the country and all it stands for.

The leftist media has dedicated themselves to being a propaganda arm for a group of individuals who hate everything about this country and want to fundamentally transform it into a socialist nightmare.

Why in the world should we thank them for their “service” when all they are doing is tearing the nation apart by pushing their agenda down on the average citizen?

It’s ridiculous.

Letter Threatens To Burn Down Homes Of Trump Supporters In New Hampshire: ‘You Have Been Given Fair Warning’

Published

A very sick and twisted individual is sending out letters to those who are supporters of President Trump in the state of New Hampshire, threatening to burn their homes to the ground if he happens to lose the election but doesn’t concede. Local news outlets reported that the letter has been sent to various homes in the the town that have been displaying support for Trump. Here’s what the letter said via Daily Wire: Dear neighbor. You have been identified by our group as being a Trump supporter. Your address has been added to our database as a target when we attack should Trump not concede the election. We recommend that you check your home insurance policy and make sure that it is current and that it has adequate coverage for fire damage. You have been given “Fair Warning.” Always remember, it was “you” that started this Civil War. Be prepared to face the severe consequences of your pre-emptive actions against democracy. Brookline police Chief Bill Quigley confirmed two Trump supporters in his town also received the letter. “”I was kind of quite shocked that anyone would send a letter out with that type of threat,” he admitted. Quigley said he alerted the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, adding that the perpetrator could be charged with a serious crime. He explained, “Not only with us, with criminal threatening. It’s on a felony level, because of the threat of burning homes down and causing injury, but it could also be with the postal inspectors, something on the federal level.” “I was very taken aback. This is my home. You’re not supposed to threaten my home. I’m very worried in the sense that this is going on in my town,” Milford resident Kelly told the press. Milford is a small town with a…

Matthew McConaughey Tells Americans To ‘Embrace’ Results Of 2020 Election ‘Whichever Way It Goes’

Published

Actor Matthew McConaughey has a message for Americans ahead of the 2020 presidential election and to be honest, it’s one you probably wouldn’t have guessed would come from someone with his amount of Hollywood clout. We’re all so used to raging liberals just hating on the president for no logical reason that when someone from the entertainment industry actually offers some sort of reasonable response to the political madness of our time it takes you off guard. According to McConaughey, regardless of which way the election works out, Americans should “embrace” it. via Fox News: McConaughey, 50, promoted his new book “Greenlights” on “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday and spoke about his motto: “When faced with the inevitable, get relative.” Applying that motto to the race between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, he said, “It’s not inevitable who’s going to win.” “After that happens, whether it’s an incumbent or whether it’s Biden, after it happens is when it’s time to get constructive and not be in denial,” McConaughey stated. “It’s time to get constructive and not deny the fact of whatever’s happened and embrace the situation,” he said speaking about the future president. “Whoever is going to be commander in chief and president of the United States of America, that’s not something, hopefully, that we’re going to deny or be able to argue,” the actor told the “Fox & Friends” crew. “I hope it’s a clean election,” McConaughey went on. “Whichever way it goes I hope it’s clean and that there’s no debate.” Now, embracing it doesn’t mean just going with the flow completely and not holding whoever wins up to the standards of morality and the Constitution. But it does mean not being a crybaby and throwing a fit, burning neighborhoods to the ground and looting…
