The Media Is Again Using False Claims as a Weapon to Destroy President Trump

The media is lying to you, America.

The media has spent all day attacking President Donald Trump over his statements about the deaths in Puerto Rico from Hurricane Maria. But don’t believe the left. They are lying.

Trump raised the ire of the left with his comments that the federal response to Maria was good. Trump also panned the claim that 3,000 people died from the hurricane.

“3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths. As time went by it did not go up by much. Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000,” he tweeted on September 13.

Trump followed that up with, “This was done by the Democrats in order to make me look as bad as possible when I was successfully raising Billions of Dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico. If a person died for any reason, like old age, just add them onto the list. Bad politics. I love Puerto Rico!”

The media lost its tiny hive mind over these tweets and over his subsequent comments to the press on the issue.

But as Breitbart News’ Joel Pollak noted, the media’s attacks are based on lies.

His opponents — including the media — have strained for more than a year to turn Hurricane Maria into his version of Hurricane Katrina, the devastating 2005 storm that prompted criticism of President George W. Bush’s response — even though state and local authorities had been far worse — and foreshadowed a Democratic takeover of Congress in 2006.

Leading the charge was CNN, which made a special effort to link Hurricane Maria in 2017 to Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and made a temporary media sensation of San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, who accused the Trump administration of neglect.

However, the media’s effort at the time was frustrated by several factors. First, experts praised the federal government’s response to Hurricane Maria, which posed special challenges because Puerto Rico is so far from the mainland U.S.

Second, Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló himself praised the federal government’s response: ““The president and the administration, every time we’ve asked them to execute, they’ve executed quickly,” he told Fox News in September 2017.

Third, Puerto Rico was already something of a disaster before the hurricane hit, thanks to mismanagement by the territory’s government that led to a debt crisis in recent years. (Mayor Cruz herself is reportedly under FBI investigation for corruption.)

Pollak goes on to give examples of multiple media outlets saying that 1,200 and even fewer deaths occurred as a direct result of the hurricane. Far less than the 3,000 now ascribed to the storm.

But, more importantly, Pollak notes that the claims that 3,0000 or even 4,000 died from the storm is based on fake news reports and “sloppy” analysis.

In truth, the extremely high numbers that the media are passing around today are not factual. But it isn’t the number of deaths the media cares about, here. It is the fact that the media can use the false claims as a weapon to destroy Trump. So, don’t believe these inflated numbers. The media is lying to you, America.

Minneapolis Police Department to Be Dismantled, Says Ilhan Omar & City Council Member

Not a great idea, y’all…

The worst thing that can happen right now is for liberal politicians to go after every single police department over the actions of one officer. But they’re going to do it anyway. In Los Angeles, upwards of $150 million may soon be diverted from the LAPD. In Minneapolis, it could get even wilder. From New York Post: Members of the Minneapolis City Council pledged to “dismantle” the city’s police department in the wake of worldwide protests over the killing of George Floyd. Council President Lisa Bender joined several other members in promises to drastically change how public safety is upheld in the city. Bender’s tweet: https://twitter.com/lisabendermpls/status/1268644819628224513?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1268644819628224513&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fnypost.com%2F2020%2F06%2F04%2Fminneapolis-city-council-members-pledge-to-dismantle-police-department%2F Rep.

The proposal comes amid another day of protests that drew thousands in Los Angeles. Continued: The legislation would cut between $100 million and $150 million in funding from the LAPD’s 2020-21 budget.

CNN Guest: ‘White Kids Don’t Deserve Innocence, Childhood’ [Video]

Dude. Come on.

His name is Tim Wise, but he’s clearly not the sharpest knife in the drawer. According to the CNN guest, white kids should basically be abused so they’ll feel how black kids feel. This is how the liberal mind works, just in case that wasn’t already crystal clear. They are all off their rockers. WATCH: CNN guest Tim Wise- “White kids don’t deserve innocence, childhood, to feel they won’t be killed because black kids don’t.” This is the state of the left. https://twitter.com/Just_Shannah/status/1268529177164120064?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1268529177164120064&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2020%2F06%2Fcnn-guest-proposes-abusing-white-children-wake-george-floyds-death-white-kids-dont-deserve-innocence-video%2F From Daily Wire: Rioters broke into CNN’s headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, on Friday night, shattering windows, throwing objects at law enforcement officials, and lighting police cars on fire. After riots escalated over the course of a few hours, rioters appeared to begin pushing police into the building, and threw at least one large firework artillery shell inside the building, which exploded near law enforcement officers.
