Whether you adore Donald Trump or hate him, I would think that reading/seeing/hearing the NEWS would be important to you, right?  What person prefers to remain in the dark about local, state, national, and international news?  Whether you are a Democrat or a Republican, knowing what’s happening in the world is important.  Yet, our mainstream media have collectively become liars.  Yes, LIARS!  And how can I say that?  By uncovering the truth through hours and hours of research.

Associated Press writes:

WASHINGTON (AP) — In his prime-time speech to the nation, President Donald Trump declared a border crisis that’s in sharp dispute, wrongly accused Democrats of refusing to pay for border security and ignored the reality of how drugs come into the country as he pitched his wall as a solution to varied ills.

LIE!  That is exactly what is happening.  Democrats are refusing (rightly or wrongly) to fund the wall, despite being all for it in 2006, 2009, and 2013.  This is what Chuck Schumer said about illegal immigration in 2009.  Similar comments were made by Bill Clinton in 2006 and Barak Obama in 2013.

A look at his Oval Office remarks Tuesday night:

DRUGS

TRUMP: “Our southern border is a pipeline for vast quantities of illegal drugs, including meth, heroin, cocaine and fentanyl. Every week, 300 of our citizens are killed by heroin alone, 90 percent of which floods across from our southern border.”

THE FACTS: A wall can’t do much about that when drug trafficking is concentrated at land ports of entry, not remote stretches of the border.

LIE!  There is plenty of meth, cocaine, heroin, fentanyl, and other drugs being carried across the border by individuals in backpacks.  A single “mule” can easily carry millions of doses of fentanyl, for example.  Trucks attempt to smuggle in marijuana at border crossings, but much of our illegal drugs come across the border by individual mules.

According to the latest data available, while the largest amounts of drugs overall were seized in between the ports of entry, the overwhelming majority of those seizures by Border Patrol agents is for marijuana, which is cheaper and less strong than other narcotics.

However, customs agents also seized more than 67,000 pounds of methamphetamine smuggled through the ports of entry. Meanwhile, border agents seized nearly 10,300 pounds of meth last year. (That’s 13%– significant!)

The Drug Enforcement Administration says “only a small percentage” of heroin seized by U.S. authorities comes across on territory between ports of entry. The same is true of drugs generally.

In a 2018 report , the agency said the most common trafficking technique by transnational criminal organizations is to hide drugs in passenger vehicles or tractor-trailers as they drive into the U.S. though entry ports, where they are stopped and subject to inspection. They also employ buses, cargo trains and tunnels, the report says, citing other smuggling methods that also would not be choked off by a border wall.

Yes, any and all ways that they can smuggle drugs– trucks, mules, body cavities, cars, planes, submarines, children, and more.  And, we’re not even talking about bringing in terrorists, gangsters, sex slaves, incurable tuberculosis, the new polio-like virus that paralyzes children, measles, mumps, smallpox, sexually-transmitted diseases, and much more.  These come across at other than vehicle checkpoints.

But, I digress.  This is just ONE AP article that is almost completely wrong, trying to mislead the media that quotes it as well as you and me.  I have seen, personally, NBC editing Zimmerman’s 911 call to make him sound racist.  Think about that a moment– EDITING the truth out of a report.  I similarly saw Katie Couric edit a gun documentary to freeze the faces of a pro-gun panel who were asked a question about guns, to make them seem clueless.  Similarly, video and photos of the border crisis are staged, conflicting material photo-shopped out, audio being edited, video being edited. 

A couple years ago, Trump walked into a room of people, one of which was a crippled (retarded?) child in a wheelchair.  Trump walked into the room, bent down, and shook the kid’s hand and gave him undivided attention for about 30 seconds before moving on to shake hands with the adults.  The child kept his arm extended as if he wanted to shake hands again.  The mainstream media edited out the first part, where Trump talked with the child, and instead ran the headlines, TRUMP CALLOUSLY SNUBS CRIPPLED CHILD.  And, on, and on, and on.  These are the LIES, the BULLSHIT being foist on us 24/7.

The result is that naive people believe the BULLSHIT and hate Trump, based on it.  So, when they hear more BULLSHIT about him, it meshes with their already distorted notions and they believe it, never questioning it.  Yet, it is mostly LIES.

The truth is very difficult to find.  Some of the debunk sites (Snopes, Politifact, Factcheck) have been increasingly caught in lies.  It is no secret that the couple that started Snopes is very left-leaning, so most of the time they twist or omit facts that are not becoming to leftists.  Ditto with the others.  The only one that still seems legitimate is TruthOrFiction.  Of course, you all know that Wikileaks has a 100% truth record, but covers very few topics.  If you REALLY want to know what Trump tweeted, read it directly on Twitter instead of relying on the mainstream media to spew their distorted, spun, regurgitated version of the truth.
