Media-Born FOIA Requests Rise Dramatically as MSM Goes After POTUS

This is what “journalism” is these days…and it’s frankly a bit disturbing.

There has been no doubt in the minds of America that the mainstream media is out to get President Donald Trump, but there has been little in the way of hard evidence to back up those claims.

Sure, the “news” media on television is blatant enough for us to simply accept their biases.  Reports have indicated that nearly 90% of all mainstream coverage of President Trump is negative – a fact that the media defends with circular logic, insinuating that, if Trump didn’t make so many mistake then there wouldn’t be such negativity.

It’s a bit like a dog chasing its tail, at this point isn’t it?

But now there’s another metric by which we can measure the media’s interest in ousting a sitting President:  The sheer amount of requests that they’ve made under the Freedom of Information Act.

The number of Freedom of Information Act requests the Environmental Protection Agency received from mainstream outlets such as the New York Times and Washington Post spiked immediately after Republican President Donald Trump took office, according to a Free Beacon analysis of FOIA requests by the media from 2013 to the present.

The figures, obtained through the government’s FOIA online database, reveal a clear increase in requests for information from the agency once Trump was elected president.

The New York Times, for example, made just 13 FOIA requests during the four years of Obama’s second term, sending 3 in 2013, 1 in 2014, 7 in 2015, and 2 in 2016. The number of FOIA requests the Times sent for Obama’s entire second term was nearly quadrupled in the first year of Trump’s presidency alone, when the Times sent 59 FOIA requests to the EPA.

Just how big was the jump?

Reporters at the Times have made 100 FOIA requests since Trump took office just over two years ago, a 669 percent increase of the number of FOIA requests it made during the four years of Obama’s second term.

Again, we will likely hear circular logic from the left side of American politics, blaming the media’s manufactured “crisis in the White House” for their sudden interest in government transparency.

Save conservative media!

Biden Set to Provide Pathway to Citizenship for Upwards of 20 Million Undocumented Aliens

How do you say, ‘this is a terrible idea,’ in Spanish?

The goal of the Biden administration is simple. It’s not too dissimilar from the goal of the Obama administration’s, either. In a nutshell: destroy America. That’s the plan. From Los Angeles Times: During his first days in office, President-elect Joe Biden plans to send legislation to congress that would provide a pathway to citizenship for 11 million immigrants who are in the country without legal status. Biden’s legislation does not include money to support detention and deportation. Previous immigration bills passed under both Democratic and Republican administrations linked an expansion of immigration with stepped-up enforcement and security measures. CONTINUED: The bill would provide a shorter pathway to citizenship for people with Temporary Protected Status, for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) recipients and likely also for certain frontline essential workers, vast numbers of whom are immigrants. Biden’s proposal would be the most sweeping and comprehensive immigration package since President Reagan’s in 1986 Immigrants would become eligible for legal permanent residence after 5 years and wait 3 more years for U.S. citizenship. After Joe is sworn-in as president, how long will it be before he gives way to Kamala? What say you? A year and half? Two and half years at best?

They’re baaaaaacccckkkkk. Except this time, the United States doesn’t have a strong, pro-American leader in the White House to stop them. Instead, we’re all stuck with beta male Joe and alpha woman Kamala. Lucky us. From New York Post: Guatemalan authorities have detained hundreds of Honduran migrants from the caravan including families with young children, though thousands of others were able to breach border security and continue their march northward, Reuters reported. “We are going to leave the country, to ask for help wherever they receive us,” one migrant told The Associated Press. Some 6,500 souls are on the move, fleeing poverty and political corruption in the hope of ultimately finding a better life in the United States.
