Three Short Paragraphs Illustrate How the MSM Defies Common Sense and Lies to You

ELDER PATRIOT – In a recent column Politico told the story of President Trump’s National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn.  The first three paragraphs serve as an example of how left-wing bias infiltrates everything we read and hear from the MSM.

Politico:

For decades, the National Economic Council has been a home for wonks who have quietly helped grease the policy gears in the White House.

What it just as accurately could’ve said:

For decades, the National Economic Council has been a home for wonks whose free-spending Keynesian policies have left our country $144 trillion in debt after accounting for 50-year unfunded liabilities of Medicare, Social Security, Medicaid, disability, military pensions, federal government pensions.

Politico:

But under director Gary Cohn, a former Goldman Sachs banker, the once staid and process-oriented NEC has become a central force in the vicious policy battles playing out in President Donald Trump’s White House.

What it just as accurately could’ve said:

NEC Director Gary Cohn is the former president and CEO of Goldman Sachs, the globalist banking power that tripled its market cap since 2000 while U.S. debt quadrupled over the same period of time.  Cohn’s history positions him as the central force in the oft-times contentious policy battles in President Donald Trump’s America First White House.

Politico:

While Cohn has stocked the NEC with strong policy hands — a relative rarity at the top levels of Trump’s team — he’s also made it a target for conservatives in the West Wing who fear that Cohn is pushing the president to moderate his campaign promises, according to interviews with more than a dozen administration officials, trade experts and Republican insiders.

What it just as accurately could’ve said:

Cohn has stocked the NEC with known globalist economic advisors and that has made him a target for conservatives in the West Wing who are warning Trump that Cohn is pushing the president to abandon his campaign promises and stay on the established trajectory to economic globalism – or, to at least mitigate the damage to the globalist movement during Trump’s term in office.

The truth finally surfaced in the fifth paragraph:

“I think the president is pretty clear on what he wants. It’s the staff that is on different pages,” said one senior administration aide.

This should be viewed as another positive of the strength that President Trump has shown in building his administration.

Obama surrounded himself almost exclusively with ideological Marxists who always started from the position that government (and the control it is able to exercise over large corporations) is the answer to every problem.

President Trump’s desire to debate every aspect of each issue as he searches to craft the best policies that will serve both the near-tern and the long-term, that will also reestablish and preserve our Founding Principles as well as restoring the American dream for the citizens, who elected him, should be applauded.
