We pro-Trumpers have repeatedly enjoyed those media clips of Fake News election ‘experts’ claiming over and over for more than a year that Donald Trump could not possibly win the Republican nomination for president in 2016, much less the White House.
Then we watched the same media skunks proclaiming over and over for more than two years that the president had colluded with Russia to steal the election.
And now, friends, with the exoneration of the president we are witnessing another massive blow to Fake News media credibility.
In the wake of the Mueller report it was reported that Fox News got 56% of the audience, MSNBC got 29% and CNN got 15%.
Wow. This comes after MSNBC had actually surpassed Fox with its breathless assurances that Trump would soon be history. The Hill reported in December 2018 at the peak of Russia-gate conspiracy:
MSNBC beat out Fox News last week in key ratings for first time in 17 years, topping its competitor in total viewers for the first time since 2000, according to a news release from MSNBC.
MSNBC averaged 1.56 million total viewers during the “sales day” (6 a.m. to 2 a.m.) between Dec. 17-21, making it the top cable news network in the key 25-54 age demographic.
Fox News averaged 1.54 million total viewers while CNN averaged 975,000.
The Daily Caller then reported on March 28, 2019, six days after the release of the Mueller report:
The trend continued Tuesday night, when CNN and MSNBC’s primetime programs combined for an average 2.6 million viewers, while Fox News dominated the ratings with an average of 3.3 million.
Maddow, who routinely delivered more than 3 million viewers and challenged Fox News’ Sean Hannity for the top cable news spot, brought in 2.5 million viewers Tuesday.
Fox News reported:
(Fox News’) other primetime hosts, Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham, have also benefited since the Mueller report was issued, averaging a 25 percent increase in viewership during primetime this week. They averaged 3.58 million viewers versus last week’s average of 2.72 million viewers.
Thus with the Mueller report exonerating the president millions of Americans in anti-Trump Land now feel stupid and suckered by the Fake News media and they do not like the feeling one bit.
Imagine that you are at a party and someone plays a joke on you and you look like a fool and the whole town is talking about it. That would sting. And that is exactly how tens of millions of Americans feel today after tuning into Maddow and CNN and the New York Times and NBC and NPR for two years for their daily reassurance that Trump indeed was the devil.
They feel betrayed and ashamed for being so gullible. Many of these victims don’t want to see these media scabs on their TV screens again. And this reaction is going to last a long, long time; The Boy Who Cried Wolf is a timeless tale.
So what is Rachel Maddow going to crow about now with her chirpy conviction that she somehow can predict the future? Like she predicted the sure defeat of Donald Trump on election day 2016?
It must be a really sick feeling for her. Just try to imagine how she feels about herself today. It must be devastating to her mentally and physically even though she acts like nothing has happened. But it has. She again embarrassed herself in front of the whole nation all the while acting like she had everything in the bag.
In other words the Fake News media played an all-or-nothing game with Russia-gate… and ended up with nothing.
Oh, they expected to be high-fiving each other after the Mueller report came out, and surging in the ratings when they expected the entire Trump family and administration to be marched before judges. They dreamed about it.
But today they just look stupid, which is impossible to accept for such arrogant people who think that they know everything.
This comes after the Fake News media failed miserably to predict Trump’s victory in 2016 and then went all-in against the president throughout 2017 and 2018, even leaving Russia-gate aside (the travel ban, Comey firing, Charlottesville, McCain, etc.).
And we pro-Trumpers could see it coming. From the day that he was elected the president has taken out successfully against the biased media, particularly CNN and its obnoxious scribe Jim Acosta.
CNN is now circling the drain; president Trump has smashed down its ratings into the basement with his charge of “fake news”. CNN has lost all credibility except among the cranks and conspiracy nuts on the political left.
In fact the election of Donald Trump is finally bringing down the entire Old Guard of the media – the New York Times, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, the Washington Post, etc. – in ways that were unimaginable just a few years ago.
These media skunks took an immovable position against Trump and Trump just keeps drubbing them. And when he is re-elected in 2020 these media rats will finally see the light that is flickering clearly in the tunnel ahead of them – the light of an oncoming train that is going to flatten them. It already has started doing so.
These media snakes thought that president Trump was just another sucker Republican who would roll over and play dead just because the media said mean things about him. They were living on past glories when they had total control, from the days before Rush Limbaugh, talk radio, the internet and the rising up of the middle class in the person of Donald Trump.
But wait! There’s much more! It gets even worse… Fox News reports:
President Trump, in an exclusive wide-ranging interview Wednesday night with Fox News’ “Hannity”, vowed to release the full and unredacted Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants and related documents used by the FBI to probe his campaign, saying he wants to “get to the bottom” of how the long-running Russia collusion narrative began.
Trump told anchor Sean Hannity that his lawyers previously had advised him not to take that dramatic step out of fear that it could be considered obstruction of justice.
“I do, I have plans to declassify and release. I have plans to absolutely release,” Trump said. “I have some very talented people working for me, lawyers, and they really didn’t want me to do it early on. … A lot of people wanted me to do it a long time ago. I’m glad I didn’t do it. We got a great result without having to do it, but we will. One of the reasons that my lawyers didn’t want me to do it, is they said, if I do it, they’ll call it a form of obstruction.”
Trump added: “Frankly, thought it would be better if we held it to the end. But at the right time, we will be absolutely releasing.”
In other words the president is not going to sit idly by and bask in his glory at being exonerated by Mueller. It is not in his genes. As he had said repeatedly, “If somebody hits me, I have to hit them back. I have to.”
He has the power to release these documents and now we are going to see them. And the repercussions against the Fake News media and the Deep State in Washington are just beginning.
And when ‘We the People’ start to actually see how this travesty began, and who was involved our faith in Washington will be shaken to the core but our faith in president Trump will soar to the heavens.
You just watch: Many of these Deep State thugs who plotted this treasonous travesty are going to end up in jail, perhaps even going up to Hillary Clinton and Obama. And Nikitas3.com will be following that story for the next few years with great joy.
Is Obamacare Finally Dead?
Obamacare could finally be dead. Don’t doubt it. Breitbart News reports:
The Trump-Barr Department of Justice (DOJ) informed a federal appeals court on Monday that it agrees with Texas and the other states suing over Obamacare that President Donald Trump’s repealing of the individual mandate renders the entire law unconstitutional, and therefore should be struck down in its entirety.
This all turns on the legal doctrine of severability. Much of the time when a statute is unconstitutional it is actually only partially unconstitutional. Typically a court will strike down that part of the law, but sever it from the rest of the statute and uphold the remainder.
So the action by the Trump administration in the 2017 tax bill to eliminate the individual mandate to purchase health insurance could kill the whole thing.
Good. Obamacare has covered millions of people with insurance at the expense of millions of others. In other words, it is typical socialism scam – a zero-sum game. It needs to be repealed.
