Trump Vows Retaliation for WaPo Journalist’s Murder. Here’s His Plan.

Published

on

For the last two years, we’ve been treated to the media’s self-victimizing perception of Trump’s supposed hatred for journalists.

They even, disgustingly, blamed him for the shooting at a Maryland newspaper, in which five newspaper employees were killed. (The shooter was motivated by what he believed was slander once published about him in the paper, not Trump.)

Now, there is very good reason to believe a journalist from the Washington Post was murdered by the Saudi government.

Trump has made no bones about his low regard for the Washington Post, a clearly left-leaning publication that he demonizes for both its biased reporting and being owned by Jeff Bezos.

So, how do you think he has responded to the murder of one of their journalists?

Like any head of state ought to.

He’s promising retaliation, plainly stating that no American journalist should ever have to fear murder at the hands of a foreign government.

Even journalists he likely disagrees with. So, tell me again about his “war on the press”?

Western Journal reports:

President Donald Trump is threatening tough action if Saudi Arabia is found to have killed journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who has not been seen alive since he entered the Saudi embassy in Istanbul on Oct. 2.

On Saturday, CBS released a video clip from Trump’s “60 Minutes” in which he spoke about the issue.

“There will be severe punishment,” Trump told Lesley Stahl in the interview, set to air Sunday.

Although multiple media reports have said that Khashoggi, a contributor to The Washington Post, is presumed to have been killed by the Saudis, Trump said the facts are not all in.

“It’s being investigated, it’s being looked at very, very strongly, and we would be very upset and angry if that were the case,” the president said.

Boom.

This is what a strong leader looks like. It is to his great credit that he is able to take this firm stance and consistent with his short history of being very tough when it comes to foreign policy matters.

The press will likely overlook this admirable indication of Trump’s character, but in promising to retaliate against the death of a WaPo journalist, he embodies the American spirit that is in sore need of revival in our nation.

We may vehemently disagree with our ideological opponents here at home, but when it comes to foreign threats, it’s always us against them, and we need to stick together and defend our own. At last, we have a President who is willing to do this.

After Notre Dame Fire, Man Arrested with Gas Gans in NYC Cathedral

The news comes just days after Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris was accidentally set ablaze.

gasoline fire arson

The hellish blaze that engulfed Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris this week was a disheartening spectacle that none of us would ever hope to see again, anywhere in the world. For many, the timing of the inferno was almost too coincidental to be accidental, given that this is the beginning of Holy Week for the Christian faith, culminating with Easter Sunday in just a few days.  Online conspiracy theorists have long been trying to tie these threads together in order to fit their own narrative, mind you, complete with the occasional race-baiting insinuation that this was Islamic terrorism. To be clear, there is no evidence of a criminal act having taken place at Notre Dame. In contrast, however, police in New York City have arrested a man who looked to clearly be ready to reenact the Notre Dame blaze at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral just yesterday. A New Jersey man was arrested after entering St. Patrick’s Cathedral carrying two cans of gasoline, lighter fluid and butane lighters, the New York Police Department said, just days after flames ravaged the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. The unidentified 37-year-old man had pulled up Wednesday night in a minivan outside the landmark cathedral on Fifth Avenue in midtown Manhattan, walked around the area, then returned to his vehicle at 7:55 p.m. and retrieved the gasoline and lighter fluid, said NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence and Counterterrorism John Miller. That’s scary enough…but it gets stranger. “His basic story was he was cutting through the cathedral to get to Madison Avenue. That his car had run out of gas,” Miller said. “We took a look at the vehicle. It was not out of gas and at that point he was taken into custody.” The incident comes as another potential copycat criminal was found dead after “obsessing”…

North Korea Taunts USA with New Weapons Test

North Korea has a history of diplomatic ebbs and flows, but this is the sort of bait-and-switch insult that could have Trump ready to wallop Kim Jong Un.

Kim Jong Un

Perhaps it was always too good to be true. Donald Trump, a President who was widely lambasted by the liberal left on account of his political inexperience, became an unprecedented hero in an unlikely situation with North Korea early into his presidency. For reasons perhaps still unknown, Trump’s opening of a dialogue with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un suddenly seemed to bring the DPRK back into the global community.  Part of this resurgence included, as it must, a promise of denuclearization by the hermit kingdom. Somewhere along the way, things have fallen off the rails, likely at the behest of Kim himself. Now, ever more astonishingly, the dainty despot is pushing the envelope even further with claims of a new weapons test. North Korea said Thursday that it had test-fired a new type of “tactical guided weapon,” its first such test in nearly half a year, and demanded that Washington remove Secretary of State Mike Pompeo from nuclear negotiations. The test, which didn’t appear to be of a banned mid- or long-range ballistic missile that could scuttle negotiations, allows North Korea to show its people it is pushing ahead with weapons development while also reassuring domestic military officials worried that diplomacy with Washington signals weakness. And that’s not all:  The DPRK is also now taking pot shots at Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Separately, the North Korean Foreign Ministry accused Pompeo of playing down the significance of comments by leader Kim Jong Un, who said last week that Washington has until the end of the year to offer mutually acceptable terms for an agreement to salvage the high-stakes nuclear diplomacy. Both the demand for Pompeo’s removal from the talks and the weapon test point to North Korea’s displeasure with the deadlocked negotiations. Was this all a ruse by North…
