Chris Wallace opens the discussion with a question for Reince Priebus that is based upon a false premise. He asks, “Reince, the President believes that a free and independent press is a threat to the country?” Wallace isn’t that stupid but sometimes he’s really good at acting like it. If there were a free and independent press Trump wouldn’t have made the statement. There isn’t, there’s the CFR controlled establishment media that is a propaganda union bent on his destruction, Wallace knows that, they’re his bosses too.
Priebus responded, saying, “There are certain things that are happening in the news that just aren’t honest. And we’re not talking about everyone, Chris, we’re not talking about all news, but we’re talking about something that I guess he’s termed as “fake news.” He then cites an example of a New York Times article from last week which falsely stated that the Trump campaign had constant contact with Russian spies, basically a treasonous type accusation, we have now all kinds of people looking into this.
Priebus says, “I can assure you, and I’ve been approved to say this, that the top levels of the intelligence community have assured me that that story is not only inaccurate, but it’s grossly overstated and it was wrong and there’s nothing to it. And so, if I can say that to the American people, then what does it say about the story? He then cites two others as Wallace interrupts, to jump back to the first part of his statement.
He confirms with his guest, “You say that the intelligence community says that there were no contacts between anyone in the Trump campaign, any associate of Mr. Trump and anybody involved as a Russian agent as to the campaign and collusion in the campaign with Russia. Is that what you’re saying?” Priebus replied, “Yeah, absolutely, they have made it very clear that that story in the New York Times was complete garbage and, frankly, they used different words than that, okay?”
Wallace restates for clarity, “So no collusion whatsoever between anybody involved with Trump and anybody involved with Russia in the 2016 campaign.” Forcing Wallace to sit back in his chair in apparent surprise, Priebus replies, “No, and if you look at Devin Nunes’ comments in the actual paper on the record, Chris, he was briefed by the FBI, and what did he do? He turned around and went on the record and said that this story is complete garbage.”
Wallace then releases his obvious built up resentment, scolding President Trump for saying the fake media are an enemy to the country. We don’t have a state run media in this country, that’s what they have in dictatorships. Wallace is right, it’s not state run, it’s shadow government run by the corporate and financial oligarchs of the global government. It’s much worse and done in secret to enable them to engage in guerrilla warfare, hiding what they’re doing. A state media would at least be a visible enemy that could be directly engaged. Trump’s correct and calling it like it is, without going so far as to name the Council on Foreign Relations leadership and its members directly or those above them.
Priebus then goes through the exercise of explaining to Wallace what he already knows about the nature of the media propaganda saturation. He believes that for big stories that are as damning as the ones that he cited there should be at least one named source. As Priebus attempts to go down a list of the accomplishments of the administration in less than a month, Wallace talks over him, something he would never attempt with Chuck Schumer or any of the other blowhard Democrats.
Wallace defends the incessant drumbeat of negative stories saying, “You don’t get to tell us what to do anymore than Barack Obama did,” and actually defends the former pretend ‘president.’ Priebus tells him he should be more concerned with the media having evolved into a collection of gossip magazines than about what the President said.
He goes on to ask another falsehood based question, asking if the President thinks there is anything wrong with his National Security Adviser “calling the Russian ambassador to talk about, ‘we’re going to review and perhaps life sanctions, precisely on the day that ‘president’ Obama imposed those sanctions because Russia had interfered in the US election. [Brennan/ Clapper disinformation given the standing of fact] He doesn’t think there’s anything wrong with that? He rightly points out that the agitated Wallace is “going bananas here,” which Wallace then denies as he continues to go bananas. Priebus responds, “Yes you are, it’s ridiculous.
As Wallace goes on to jump on a comment about the timeline of events with the Flynn resignation, complete with dated graphics already prepared, his voice is shaky – he’s really agitated to the point he can’t hide it.
It’s been a long time since the anti-Trump gotcha attacks of the opening Republican debate and clearly, over all that time and the departure of his co-conspirator Megyn Kelly, Wallace hasn’t learned a thing and he hasn’t changed a bit.
Thank you for reading and sharing my work – Facebook is trying to starve us out of existence, having cut literally 98% of our traffic over the last year. Your shares are crucial for our survival, and we thank you. We’ve also created a presence on Gab.ai and MeWe.com, although their reach is presently much smaller, the continued abuse by Facebook of conservative voices leaves us no option. We’re remaining on Facebook for the time being, as we make the transition. Please take a look when you have a chance or if we “suddenly disappear” from Facebook as has happened to many other truth-tellers. They’ll either starve us out or take us down, one way or another, sooner or later.
