Between President Trump blowing up the internet on Saturday with claims that the Obama administration wire-tapped his campaign, the recent release of the Republican plan for healthcare and the new travel pause Executive Order, the mainstream media, Democratic politicians and liberal pundits are so busy chasing their tails, not sure what to be more outraged about that they haven't been able to converge on a set narrative.
I am calling this the Trump Trifecta! Make no mistake, the unfolding of events was deliberately planned out and implemented.
It started Saturday when in a rapid series of tweets President Trump accused the Obama administration of wire tapping his campaign, setting the stage for the media to jump into the fray to defend Obama, which they did, by claiming that Trump has "no evidence," which immediately came back to bite them in the butt as pundit after pundit provided the evidence by way of reports from the mainstream media, claiming their high level "sources" had discussed those wire-taps.
One specific screen shot from the NYT, dated January 20, 2017, has gone viral across the internet to prove how "Schizophrenic," and "confused" the media narrative has become, basically calling themselves liars for their initial reports.
In that report, titled "Wiretapped Data Used In Inquiry Of Trump Aides," the NYT wrote "The F.B.I. is leading the investigations, aided by the National Security Agency, the C.I.A. and the Treasury Departmentís financial crimes unit. The investigators have accelerated their efforts in recent weeks but have found no conclusive evidence of wrongdoing, the officials said. One official said intelligence reports based on some of the wiretapped communications had been provided to the White House."
That was Trump's initial volley and while I do not claim to know exactly what he was thinking or what he has seen to push him to make those statements, it isn't unreasonable to determine, just from noting their pattern of behavior over the last nearly two years, that Trump knew they would all rush to attack, but in doing so, the media had to trash their own reports, basically destroying what was left of the credibility and Democrats had to admit they had seen no "hard evidence" even suggesting their was any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia regarding the 2016 presidential election.
The day Trump issued his tweets on the wire-tapping, I asked in my article about it, "Why would Trump be putting this information out right now, when prior revelations already indicated that Obama was using the FISA court against the Trump campaign, had been turned down, just to resubmit a more narrow request to spy on Trump's campaign during the election process?"
I think we may have the ultimate answer, so they would accuse him of having no evidence, blow up on talk shows, deny it, spin it, trash their own reporting, and be so busy asking for proof, when he already had his proof in their own prior coverage, that the release of the healthcare bill and the travel pause EO would be relegated the status of "less important."
The people will have a chance to read them both before the media could converge on a narrative.
Unlike Nancy Pelosi telling the country "we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of controversy" the Republicans are handing it to the American people. The bill is titled "American Health Care Act," and is 123 pages (can be downloaded here), unlike the Obamacare bill which was thousands of pages long.
As for the travel pause, the EO can be read at the White House website and below, we hear†Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz discuss it, the changes made to it so it could pass legal challenges, and calling it a much stronger bill.
In the meantime, the media, dems and liberal pundits are still howling over the wire-tap tweets, with a few attacking the healthcare bill, but the travel pause EO, which caused massive protests at all the major airports in January? Nothing in comparison†to the reaction the first time around.
We have all seen Trump use the media bias against him to his advantage during the past year and a half, where the media rushed to cover one thing and ended provided massive coverage for veterans endorsing him, or covering those accusing Bill Clinton of sexual abuse, and it appears that he has once again used their own bias, their own coverage, to keep them busy while he went about doing the job he promised Americans he would do.
