Look at that face- the face of panic. The face of sheer terror. Be afraid. Be very afraid. It’s what the media wants.
It’s as though every morning the left (press included) wakes up and has no memory of the previous day’s events. Or the previous weeks or months either. Every day is a new day. There is no such thing as history, especially where Donald Trump is concerned. And you can no longer tell where the media ends and the democrat party begins.
This morning on Good Morning America Martha Raddatz started off with a breathless, frightened, panicky warning about Donald Trump and his inflammatory rhetoric toward North Korea. She insinuated that Trump started all the conflict with NK. The world is “reeling.” It was a “dramatic escalation in rhetoric.” It was all due to his mouth. You can watch the fright fest here. Raddatz went off the rails when she claimed that North Korea was planning to target Guam. That is inaccurate. The NK plan is allegedly to drop ballistic missiles into the waters around Guam as a “crucial warning.” They are not targeting the island as Raddatz states. The report then shows a video clip of the Governor of Guam saying any threat to or attack on Guam is one upon the United States. What GMA left out completely was the Governor saying that were Guam attacked, he’d want Trump as the President:
Guam’s governor, Eddie Calvo, is voicing support for President Trump’s stern warning to North Korea, telling Fox News, “I want a president that says that.”
“As far as I’m concerned, as an American citizen, I want a president that says that if any nation such as North Korea attacks Guam, attacks Honolulu, attacks the West Coast, that they will be met with hell and fury,” Calvo said late Wednesday during an interview on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” with fill-in host Brian Kilmeade.
“This is similar to Hawaii,” he added. “So it’s important that as we make decisions that those folks that are in a position of leadership that they understand, too, that war is the last option because not only will tens of thousands of American military forces and dependents be affected by a regional war but because the western Pacific has American soil in it, a couple hundred thousand Americans could get caught in the cross hairs.”
Not one word about the things that the little fat boy Kim has been saying for the last several months:
KCNA reported that a spokesman from the North Korean Foreign Ministry said, “The DPRK legally stipulates that if the supreme dignity of the DPRK is threatened, it must preemptively annihilate those countries and entities that are directly or indirectly involved in it, by mobilizing all kinds of strike means including the nuclear ones.”
All it takes for annihilation is to simply threaten the “supreme dignity” of the DPRK. That’s it.
And of course, there was not a single person at ABC News (or anywhere else other than Fox) to remind people that Barack Obama also made threats toward North Korea:
Mr Obama gave warning of the possible consequences. “We could, obviously, destroy North Korea with our arsenals,” he told CBS News. “But aside from the humanitarian costs of that, they are right next door to our vital ally, [South] Korea.”
Mr Obama said that America was improving its own missile defences. “One of the things that we have been doing is spending a lot more time positioning our missile defence systems, so that even as we try to resolve the underlying problem of nuclear development inside of North Korea, we’re also setting up a shield that can at least block the relatively low level threats that they’re posing right now,” he said.
Low level threats. He made them sound like the JV. Obama did not take ISIS seriously, nor did he take North Korea seriously. Do you remember way, way back (the day before the election) when Russia was our friend and North Korea was our enemy? If you don a pair of liberal spectacles, Russia is now our enemy and North Korea is protected by the media as friend of ours who is being bullied by Donald Trump.
Despite all the manure you’re being handed from the legacy media, Trump’s NK policy is really not much different from Obama’s.
President Donald Trump has vowed a “very severe” response to North Korea’s escalating development of missiles and nuclear weapons. But behind closed doors, the Trump administration is pursuing a strategy that’s not all that different from President Barack Obama’s approach.
Administration officials are saying privately that a preventive military attack is “not on the table,” said Bruce Klingner, a veteran intelligence agent who works as a senior research fellow for northeast Asia at the influential Heritage Foundation. Instead, he said, they’re pursuing a five-part strategy similar to what the Obama administration employed — one that includes increasing pressure on both North Korea and the other countries that facilitate Kim Jong Un’s weapons program.
Frightening you about Trump is part of the media plan to take Trump down. Brian Williams said that it’s the media’s job to “scare people to death” regarding North Korea.
“Malcolm, our job tonight actually is to scare people to death on this subject so the talk isn’t as free as it is about a preemptive or a surgical military strike. You know that part of the world. The population centers, Andrea and the General [Barry McCaffrey] have talked about, South Korea, the Japanese, and so on and so on,” Williams said.
Speaking of scary, Susan Rice seems to have become a lobbyist for North Korea:
Former Obama administration official Susan Rice on Thursday recommended that President Donald Trump halt the “reckless rhetoric” and “tolerate” nuclear weapons in North Korea if necessary.
The former national security adviser and U.S. ambassador to the United Nations wrote in a New York Times op-ed that tolerating Pyongyang’s possession of nuclear weapons could be the “pragmatic” move.
“History shows that we can, if we must, tolerate nuclear weapons in North Korea — the same way we tolerated the far greater threat of thousands of Soviet nuclear weapons during the Cold War,” she wrote. “It will require being pragmatic.”
Rice left open the door for North Korea to use conventional weapons on the US without repercussion:
By most assessments, Mr. Kim is vicious and impetuous, but not irrational. Thus, while we quietly continue to refine our military options, we can rely on traditional deterrence by making crystal clear that any use of nuclear weapons against the United States or its allies would result in annihilation of North Korea.
Maxine Waters (D-LOON) is ready to surrender to Kim Jong Un:
Waters told the reporter that the State Department needs to be stacked up to deal in diplomacy with North Korea, and that the United States cannot afford to go to war with the country.
“I want us to be very careful, very alert to what is happening and to avoid war,” Waters said. “I think we can do this with some diplomacy, but we have got to have Tillerson, who is our secretary of state, get those positions filled for deputy [and] for assistant, so that we can engage with North Korea.”
She went on to say that she believes North Korea is issuing threats against the United States, but the United States should negotiate with the rogue country.
“I think there’s some things that they want from us, and we have to find out whether or not we can work with them on the things that they’re asking for,” Waters said.
Which is what I already said North Korea was angling for. Donald Trump not only has to deal with North Korea, but now he has to face NK’s newest allies- the media and the DNC.
