It doesn’t take a political guru to realize that former Vice President Joe Biden is completely unfit to conduct the Presidency of the United States of America. All you need is a working eye and partial hearing to understand that the Democrats have pushed forth a walking dead candidate who is more suited to a nursing home than the Oval Office. It is with all due respect, when I say that Joe Biden needs assistance finishing a complete thought, never mind in defeating the incumbent President on his own two feet. Enter Uber Liberal media sycophant Jeffrey Goldberg, and his Clinton Donor funded Atlantic Magazine.
On September 3rd, an attempted character assassination titled “Trump: Americans Who Died in War Are ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers’” written by Goldberg himself, was published by The Atlantic to a media and social uproar. Goldberg, who peddled faulty American Intelligence during the George W. Bush Administration’s run up to the 2003 Iraq War, centered the piece on the President’s 2018 visit to France to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the end of WWI.
At the time, it was reported that the President was not able to attend a ceremony commemorating the fallen soldiers at the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery, due to severe weather restrictions on his planned helicopter route. Not so, said Goldberg:
“Trump rejected the idea of the visit because he feared his hair would become disheveled in the rain, and because he did not believe it important to honor American war dead, according to four people with firsthand knowledge of the discussion that day. In a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the scheduled visit, Trump said, “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.” In a separate conversation on the same trip, Trump referred to the more than 1,800 marines who lost their lives at Belleau Wood as “suckers” for getting killed.”
And who provided Goldberg with these bombshell revelations? Well, who else but 4 anonymous sources!
In the ensuing political and public fallout, the President was left with no choice but to go on the offensive. Not only did the President vehemently deny the accusations in the Goldberg story, his administration took unprecedented steps to refute the story. This included declassifying an email from the United States Marine Corps Military Aide to the President, verifying the official version of events. According to Spectator.Org, the email read “Team, We are BAD WX call for today’s lift. COS [chief of staff] Gen Kelly, will motorcade and replace POTUS for today’s ceremony.”
The Spectator article also revealed a statement from the White House Military Office, which stated the following:
“In November 2018, during the President’s visit to France, the Military Office recommendation to the President’s Staff was to cancel the Marine One lift to Belleau, France, due to the safety concerns posed by poor weather conditions that would have been in place for the duration of the President’s planned trip. Once the helicopter lift was cancelled the collective group recommended to not motorcade based upon timing, logistics, and available assets.”
If declassifying official communications within the White House or an official statement from a Military Official aren’t good enough, perhaps the countless members of Trump’s team who were on the trip who refute the story will suffice. Former Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and current Secretary of State Mike Pompeo deny the accusations. So do Zach Fuentes, former top-aide to ex-Chief of Staff, and Marine, John Kelly, and retired Army Maj. Gen. William M. Matz. In total, there are at least 16 ON THE RECORD refutations of the story, most notably, perhaps, by former National Security Advisor and current Arch-Rival, John Bolton.
Since hearing those infamous words, “You’re Fired,” John Bolton has been persona-non-grata in Trumpville. This includes penning a scathing tell-all, “The Room Where it Happened,” and a promotional media tour blasting the President as unfit for office. Yet even HE of all people denies Goldberg’s story ever took place. In an interview with Fox News, Bolton said “I didn’t hear either of those comments or anything resembling them. I was there at the point in time that morning when it was decided that he would not go. It was an entirely weather-related decision and, I thought, the proper thing to do.”
What other evidence do we need?
It seems clear that the real question regarding Goldberg’s hit piece in The Atlantic shouldn’t be about what happened, but rather, why did he write it? In the face of mounting criticism and an insurmountable amount of exculpatory evidence, Goldberg conceded to MSNBC what the rest of us already knew: four anonymous sources aren’t good enough. (But they’re scared of the President’s mean tweets!) Why should the American people believe four individuals who weren’t brave enough to put their own reputations on the line in their attempt to destroy the reputation of the President and separate him from a core constituency, our Veterans?
A betting man would say that this was the intention all along. President Trump’s well documented feud with late Senator and Navy Veteran, John McCain, serves as the predicate for the validity of the claims in Goldberg’s article. In fact, Dan Rather revealed the media’s hand quite nicely when speaking about the claims being made: “Whether he said it or not, it is believable.” And there we have it.
It is essential to view the Atlantic story within this context: Joe Biden doesn’t stand a chance at winning election without the media. This is a No-Holds-Barred blood feud between President Trump, The Democratic Party and Establishment RINOS, and NOTHING is off limits. If it sounds like Trump said it, he said it. Period. No Truth. No real reporting. Just whatever it takes to remove the greatest threat to institutional hegemony over America and its institutions. Joe Biden is the ultimate Swamp Creature. But he is a dying one. If the Establishment Media doesn’t fight for his political life, President Donald Trump will bring him to the depths of the Swamp and drown him. End of Story.
