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!

‘We Will Not Stop!’ Maxine Waters Says There May Be More ‘Impeachment Activity’ Later In 2020

Exactly what America does not want to hear…

Maxine Waters appeared on MSNBC on Sunday to virtually announce that the Senate will acquit Donald Trump. However, that doesn’t mean Democrats won’t stop trying to impeach a duly-elected president who has not committed a single crime. In other words, Republicans need to retain the Senate and win the House at the start of Trump’s second term in office so the nation can have any hope of putting this impeachment embarrassment to bed. Here’s what’s up, via Free Beacon: Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) said Sunday that Democrats “will not stop” on impeachment and added that there may be more “impeachment activity” in the near future. “The subpoenas that I have issued that have gone through the lower courts are now going to be heard at the Supreme Court in March,” Waters said during an appearance on MSNBC. “We will not stop. Whether or not that leads to another impeachment activity, I don’t know.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Gg4xP_uOy4&feature=emb_logo While on CNN late last year, Mad Max did what she does best and attacked POTUS for attempting to make America a safer place. She said, “There should be comprehensive immigration reform and not immigration reform based on exciting and inciting those people who have negative thoughts about others coming across our border, and basically working to use that information to promote himself in a campaign. And I think some of that is very racist.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/NewDay/status/1129367547046813697 Democrats today are a different breed. They care more for bashing Trump than they do helping their country. It’s not only sad, it’s downright un-American.

WATCH: Warren Doesn’t Understand How People Could Vote for ‘Someone Who Lies to Them’

Irony.

Despite claiming she was of Indian decent for decades only to have that myth publicly disproven over an embarrassing phone call, 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren think it would be best for the American people to choose a person for office who doesn’t lie. Does this mean she’s dropping from the race? After all, Warren has been caught lying on so many occasions that it’s kind of ridiculous. SMH. The irony. Oh, the irony. From Daily Wire: Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) refused to answer a question from a CBS reporter on Sunday about whether it was acceptable for a presidential candidate to lie to the American public. WATCH: https://twitter.com/cbszak/status/1218971964443893760?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1218971964443893760&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F442220-elizabeth-warren-how-could-the-american-people-want-someone-who-lies-to-them%2F The problem is that Warren can say whatever she wants and get away with it because she has the media on her side. Thanks, Obama. WATCH: Holy shit. I have Warren on video lying about where she sent her kids to school. Sarah Carpenter: “I read that your children went to private schools” Warren: “No my children went to public schools” https://twitter.com/DeAngelisCorey/status/1197972004412051457?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1197972004412051457&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2019%2F11%2F22%2Fshe-lies-about-everything-elizabeth-warren-caught-lying-about-sending-her-son-to-public-school%2F Reactions: Warren was confronted by an activist for sending her son to a private school, and denied doing so. Then she admitted to the ⁦@FreeBeacon⁩ that she sent her son to private school beginning in 5th grade. https://twitter.com/BrentScher/status/1198034214005940224?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1198034214005940224&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2019%2F11%2F22%2Fshe-lies-about-everything-elizabeth-warren-caught-lying-about-sending-her-son-to-public-school%2F Holy shit. I’m the first to figure it out. I’m nearly certain Elizabeth Warren sent her son to an expensive private school in Austin Texas (Kirby Hall School). Warren has been trying to cover this up since she fights against school choice. https://twitter.com/DeAngelisCorey/status/1189032032464244736?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1189032032464244736&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2019%2F11%2F22%2Fshe-lies-about-everything-elizabeth-warren-caught-lying-about-sending-her-son-to-public-school%2F I found this yearbook entry for Alex Warren (born in 1976). It’s the only one. It’s Kirby Hall School. A private school right next to UT in Austin Texas (where Warren was teaching). https://twitter.com/DeAngelisCorey/status/1189032556240478209?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1189032556240478209&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2019%2F11%2F22%2Fshe-lies-about-everything-elizabeth-warren-caught-lying-about-sending-her-son-to-public-school%2F Here’s the ONLY family photo I could find of Alex…
