Shocking: John Roberts Fox News Plays Martyr – But Resorts to Fake News To Prove His Point!
By: Dr. Jake Baker - TapWires News Service
Poor John Roberts all filled with remorse and heartbroken saying Trump called the media which includes him by his reckoning, an enemy of the state. As one might imagine, being called an enemy of the state is a serious matter and one over which anyone might reasonably experience a good deal of angst. There’s only problem.
John Roberts is lying. While the lie is subtle, it is also very important.
President Trump never said that the media was an enemy of the state. What the President did say was that the “fake news” media not the media, was an enemy of the people, not the state.
Here’s why that’s important. First if you are not a part of the fake news media the statement doesn’t apply to you. There’s an old saying … Throw a rock into a pack of dogs, the one that hollers got hit. Therefore, if Roberts is feeling the sting of that statement, one knows where he stands at least in his own mind. Apparently, he believes he is a part of the fake news media.
But there is an even more important distinction to that statement. It is the difference between being an enemy of the state and an enemy of the people. The state is the government apparatus that runs the day to day operations of the government, be it local, statewide or nationally.
They are bound by the constitution and the Bill of Rights to honor the First Amendment and the freedom of the press, even if that press is reckless, irresponsible, and totally untrustworthy, which is often the case with many in the media in general and specifically with the mainstream media such as CNN, MSNBC, NY Times, WaPo, etc. Freedom of the press unless it crosses into inciting violence, sedition or treason is sacrosanct.
However, we the people also have the right to freedom of expression or free speech as well. We have a right to say what is on our minds right or wrong, pleasant or unpleasant. We have the right to verbally tear the “fake news” media apart at our discretion. That God-given right extends to all citizens from the least among us to those who hold the highest offices in the land. One does not lose their First Amendment rights upon election to office … any office.
That means all of us including Donald Trump have the right to criticize the elitist establishment media anytime for any reason. The problem is that the cry-babies in the media just don’t like the fact that when they spread lies and propaganda about this president he exercises his God-given First Amendment right in an amazingly effective fashion. Donald Trump has the right to defend himself against the outrageous slander and lies being hurled at him anytime and anywhere he chooses. Someone needs to tell John Roberts that freedom of speech is a two-way street.
Finally, when the mainstream media lies, and pollutes the airwaves with nonsense, half-truths, and fake news as Trump and conservatives see it, in an effort to lead them to a false conclusion or more accurately beat them into submission, they do in fact become an enemy of we the people. As they use the power of their media platform to cloud the truth about what the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and founding fathers said and wrote they become an enemy of the people inasmuch as they are harming us historically, socially, spiritually, and economically.
When the media attempts to strips us of our heritage, our Christian founding, and our moral uprightness, they are robbing us of that which made America exceptional. They have made themselves an enemy of the people.
Therefore, President Trump is not only within his rights to declare the mainstream media an enemy of the people, he has a moral and I believe a legal obligation to warn America and Americans to the danger presented by these pernicious media foes, lest the public be caught unaware and be hoodwinked in to a false and poisonous conclusion their enemies in the leftist media, the swamp rat elites are trying to foist upon them.
Thankfully we have a president who takes his job seriously and is willing to stick his neck out and speak out for all of us.John Roberts, Fox News, Fake News, Donald Trump, Lies, Deception, Constitution, Mainstream MEdia, Enemy of the State, Enemy of the People
