Watch: Trump Rips Into ‘Corrupt’ Fake News Media, ‘They Are the Enemy of the People’

Western Journal

Published

The last week has seen some of the most glaring examples of media bias we’ve seen over the last several years, which, believe me, is really saying something.

The way the establishment media covered the Kyle Rittenhouse trial and subsequent horrific massacre in Waukesha, Wisconsin, in which a career criminal is accused of deliberately swerving his vehicle through a crowd at a Christmas parade, killing six people and injuring dozens of others, has been downright atrocious.

Rittenhouse, who was found not guilty of all counts against him after defending his life during a riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in 2020, was portrayed, without any basis, as a “white supremacist” vigilante who “murdered” two people.

The Waukesha massacre, meanwhile, was depicted as an “accident,” while the lengthy criminal history and left-wing ideology of the suspect were shamefully ignored or downplayed.

This, in the immortal words of former President Donald Trump, is exactly what we’ve come to expect from the “fake news” media.

But as the 45th POTUS himself, whose commentary and criticism on the establishment media has grown substantially larger than his own impressive personage, told Fox News’ Sean Hannity in an interview that aired Tuesday, the “fake news” ought really to be called the “corrupt news” these days, because this is exactly what the corporate media has become.

And the fake news is most certainly, as he famously said more than once during his presidency, still the enemy of the people.

“They are corrupt,” Trump said. “I don’t want to say it much, but I say it and I hope in the future I don’t have to: They are the enemy of the people.”

As president, he inspired much pearl-clutching, especially from the self-aggrandizing members of the biased establishment media complex, for declaring that the “fake news” media were the “enemy of the people.”

Of course, the self-styled martyrs of the biased media spun his comments falsely, thus confirming his sentiment toward them in the first place. Instead, they reacted as though he had called the free press the enemy of the people.

By taking this so personally, of course, establishment media figures unwittingly admitted to being members of the “fake news” of Trump’s own characterization, so eager were they to give the American people the impression that the Orange Man sought to limit press freedoms.

Interestingly, it was ultimately Trump whose free speech was sorely undermined by corporate social media right before leaving office, and by the corporate media that still enjoy free rein to report (and distort) the news.

Trump went on, however, to make a very important point about the impact of media bias on American society that strikes at the core of just how much control the corporate outlets have over our lives.

“We could have a country that would be able to heal and get together except the media foments it,” he said.

This couldn’t be truer in regards to the Rittenhouse case and the Waukesha massacre. I believe it’s likely the vast majority of Americans would have defended Rittenhouse’s actions and been even more disturbed by the Waukesha massacre had they simply been presented with the facts instead of the wildly biased spin.



Giving himself a pat on the back for popularizing the term “fake news,” Trump said that it really ought to be the “corrupt news.”

“They’re really the ‘corrupt news,'” he said. “It’s corrupt what they do and they’re so important … they used to have a high approval rating, now they have the lowest, I think they have a lower rating than Mitch McConnell, which is pretty good.” (This sly jab at Senate Minority Leader McConnell elected a chuckle from host Hannity.)

Trump added, “People have gotten wise to it, they’ve just gotten wise to it, and it’s a shame.”

He is absolutely correct. A free press is vital to the function of a free republic, but biased, agenda-driven media disguising themselves as free, fair media could be the death of it.

Nothing demonstrated how astoundingly slanted the media are like the coverage of Trump’s presidency.

Ironically, they seriously undermined their own trustworthiness by reporting on a presidency that was easily rife for criticism by trying to spin every last mundane, uncontroversial detail of his words and actions into a major national crisis.

To say nothing of running with and promoting the exhaustively debunked Russia conspiracy theory while ignoring the far more substantial evidence that the hoax was cooked up by former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign and several shadowy political operatives.

Fake, biased, corporate news that covers for crooks and routinely bashes and attacks the will of the American people while destroying every last semblance of civility in our national discourse is very much the enemy of the people.

And the people, indeed, are waking up.

Americans Unleash on Biden After Encountering Bare Shelves at Grocery Stores Across Country

Western Journal

Published

President Joe Biden’s supply chain crisis has been raging for some time, and it is now wreaking havoc on Americans trying to live their everyday lives.

According to Fox News, a growing number of Americans are experiencing massive shortages at their local grocery stores, and they are directing their ire at Biden because of it.

Many Twitter users began using the hashtag #BareShelvesBiden to showcase the precarious situations at their local stores.

Some users told stories of the lengths they had to go to in order to find seemingly basic food items.

“This was the 2nd store we went to looking for bagels,” one user said. “Found the bagels but zero — ZERO — plain cream cheese. If you want Kraft parmesan cheese or Top Ramen, you’re pretty much out of luck.”

Even CNBC senior White House correspondent Kayla Tausche compared the situation to the apocalypse, which is surprising coming from an employee of a leftist establishment media outlet.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms noticed the problem too, albeit only through the third party she hired to shop for her. She suggested that the supply shortages were a localized issue.

Some commenters felt Bottoms was trying to insinuate that southwest Atlanta was having problems because it is a lower-income area. If that was her intention, residents from other portions of Atlanta and surrounding areas quickly rebutted the claim.

By the looks of it, Biden’s supply chain crisis is affecting almost everyone, regardless of income or political affiliation.

As a general rule, it is not a good development for a president when his failures start to greatly affect the lives of everyday Americans.

Will supply chain issues hurt Democrats in the midterm elections?

While many less politically inclined citizens may be willing to overlook foreign policy issues or government spending excesses, they are much less likely to ignore their own inability to buy the food they want.

In a time where Biden’s approval is tanking and Democrats are panicking about the upcoming midterm elections, empty grocery store shelves are just another point in a long list of problems for the Biden administration.

Soros-Backed Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby Indicted on 4 Federal Charges

Western Journal

On Thursday, a federal grand jury chose to indict Baltimore’s top prosecutor on four counts.

Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby now faces charges of perjury and “making false mortgage applications in the purchase of two Florida vacation homes,” the Office of the U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland told The Associated Press.

The charges are related to Mosby’s alleged lies about “meeting qualifications for coronavirus-related distributions from a city retirement plan in 2020.”

Prosecutors say Mosby lied on multiple mortgage application forms when she attempted to buy homes in Kissimmee, Florida, and Long Boat Key, Florida.

Mosby first entered the spotlight in 2015 during the infamous Baltimore riots following the death of Freddie Gray.

The openly progressive prosecutor pursued charges against the six police officers involved in Gray’s death.

In the end, none of the officers were convicted.

Mosby has long been criticized for her progressive approach.

Under her tenure in Baltimore, which began in 2015, the number of murders, rapes, aggravated assaults, burglaries and robberies all rose, according to an Oct. 27, 2020, report from The Heritage Foundation.

Most recently, Mosby faced criticism in November for defending Joseph Rosenbaum, the convicted sex offender who was shot while allegedly attempting to murder Kyle Rittenhouse during the Kenosha, Wisconsin, racial justice riots of 2020.

This most recent federal indictment comes months after a federal investigation into her affairs was first announced.

Both Mosby and her husband Nick Mosby, the president of the Baltimore City Council, faced various accusations in March of 2021 related to their alleged illicit use of campaign funds.

The duo was purportedly using campaign funds to pay off personal legal fees and travel expenses.

A federal probe was issued into their financial dealings at the time.

The accusations and alleged discrepancies did not stop at the campaign funds, however.

An additional federal subpoena had been issued to two churches in order to investigate whether Nick Mosby had been making financial contributions to either institution.

Both Mosbys were reportedly issued a lien by the IRS following three full years of unpaid taxes on their property. It is unknown if that lien was paid.

The two perjury counts carry a maximum sentence of five years in prison and the two mortgage-related offenses could carry with them a maximum of 30 years in prison each, according to the AP.
