Now that special counsel Robert Mueller has submitted his final report to Attorney General William Barr, stating he and his crack team of investigators discovered no evidence of any collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government to influence the 2016 election, a key page has been turned in the story of Donald Trump’s presidency.
It was expected by many—especially in the Fake News media—that Mueller’s final report would prove devastating to Trump and would come with a slew of long-expected and hoped-for indictments of members of his inner circle.
But it was not to be. Not only would there be no further indictments by the special counsel, but Barr also informed Congress in a summary letter that Mueller had found no evidence of collusion by any U.S. citizen—affiliated with the Trump campaign or not.
Until now, due to the mainstream media feeding fake news to the American public for more than two years about the Trump-Russia collusion hoax, the president has essentially been governing with one arm tied behind his back.
A constant, never-ending barrage of Trump-Russia collusion stories meant that the vast majority of Trump’s coverage was overwhelmingly negative. Some media watchdog organizations put the negative coverage of the Trump presidency since his inauguration at over 92%.
This flood tide of negativity, based on the collusion hoax, affected Trump’s ability to govern, as it tanked his poll numbers and caused cautious Republican members of Congress to take a ‘wait-and-see’ attitude toward his policies. Why get fully behind a president who might be gone soon, the thinking went.
And now, it’s over. Whatever stories the media may want to write about Trump going forward, they won’t be basing them on supposed anonymous sources “close to the Mueller team,” spinning vivid fantasies about forthcoming indictments of key Trump associates that are based on lots of Russian collusion evidence Mueller supposedly is collecting.
While Democrats and the DNC Media Complex struggle to cope with the fallout from the Mueller report, Trump will move forward quickly and press his advantage.
Trump’s other arm is now free. And he’ll quickly begin using it, especially on immigration.
Trump is now fighting for sane immigration and border policies with both hands instead of just one. That’s why he’s suddenly talking about closing the southern border along with withdrawing aid from countries that won’t stop sending illegal immigrant caravans.
Lee Smith wrote in Tablet Magazine that this exposure of the Trump-Russia election collusion hoax is an “extinction level event” for the Fake News media, and he’s right. The release of Mueller’s report will only be the beginning of the extinction event, however.
The Fake News media is going to spend the next several weeks desperately trying to spin why they fell for the Trump-Russia hoax. I expect Trump will fulfill his vow to declassify of all the FISA documents, catching them in their own lies. That’s because the truth is that many of these news outlets didn’t “fall” for the hoax, they were willing participants in creating and spreading it.
The Fake News media’s present spin cycle is loudly complaining that Mueller’s final report is being “hidden” from them and demanding access to it, while simultaneously asserting that Trump and Attorney General William Barr are trying to purge damaging information from it.
They’ve been set up.
That’s because the Mueller report is going to fully expose just how much of a fraud the Trump-Russia election collusion hoax really was. Far from finding anything that could be used against the president, the entire Trump-Russia narrative is going to be exposed as a farce.
The Mueller report will show that a special counsel team of crack Democrat partisans—who’d been given a super-wide scope to search and probe where ever they wanted to for over two years—found no evidence of any American colluding with Russia to influence the 2016 election.
The final report will also be chock-full of brain-numbing minutiae about catching Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen doing illegal lobbying, bank and tax fraud, and how the special counsel team cleverly caught a few people for perjury such as George Papadopoulos and Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.
Media outlets that spent over a year and a half publishing “news” reports about how “flipped” Trump associates were singing like canaries regarding all the Trump campaign-Russian government collusion they were involved in are going to be surprised by reading this report.
The only investigation we know about so far in which Flynn was cooperating, turns out to be related to two of his former associates who were allegedly concealing they were lobbying on behalf of Turkey.
All those long months of Fake News media talking heads on our televisions, prattling away about how Flynn was cooperating with probes of Jared Kushner, Donald Trump Jr., and all those other rotten collusion plotters now seems so very foolish, doesn’t it?
All those long news articles in our newspapers and pontificating think pieces in our magazines, based on anonymous sources who confidently asserted the Trump presidency would soon come crashing down as Mueller presented his case, turn out to not be worth the paper they were printed on.
When Trump declassifies all relevant documents—which could come not long after the release of the full Mueller report—we will likely finally learn which Fake News outlets took the money to run propaganda stories.
I’m really looking forward to it.
