This will surely have the Left screaming that Trump is an emerging dictator, but that kind of hysteria is just more ‘fake news’ from liberals.
Conservative Fighters reports that following a meeting with top officials of the military in July, NBC News, on October 11, stated that President Trump had discussed the feasibility of a “tenfold increase in the U.S. nuclear arsenal”.
The suggestion, Fox News reports, made after a slide was shown depicting the plummeting stockpile numbers of nuclear weapons in the U.S., supposedly caught the gathered brass off guard but officials said no increase was planned.
The President said he only wants to modernize and rehabilitate our nuclear arsenal, not vastly increase it in numbers.
It was this same meeting that the Propaganda Machine, which is our media, said Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called President Trump a “moron”.
Both of these incidents have been corrected or denied by the parties involved, but it has left the President frustrated with the endless stream of lies emanating from the media.
The same day as the NBC report, Trump tweeted out, “With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Bad for country!”
Cue liberal head explosions!
There will be days of endless ‘Chicken Little’ cries that tyranny is descending on us, yet what is more subversive to liberty; the legal right of a broadcasting station to be evaluated for honesty or the use of agencies of the government to silence (through threats) the reporting of journalists?
To clarify, President Trump is considering operating within the power of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), while the later practice was carried out by the Obama administration on James Rosen from Fox News, Dennis Kucinich (a Fox News contributor), Alex Jones from Infowars and former CBS reporter Sharyl Attkinson.
The Conservative Fighters state that Trump has the right to challenge the license of broadcasters. This reportedly means that a review can be made to ensure that a network complies with “a wide range of aspects, like technical issues, TV signal and a list of other requirements, among all the honest reporting as well.”
The FCC notes on its website that, “As public trustees, broadcasters may not intentionally distort the news. The FCC has stated publicly that ‘rigging or slanting the news is a most heinous act against the public interest.’”
The hysteria that all will hear from the Left is their disbelief that someone had the temerity to challenge their propaganda. Their expressed rage has nothing to do with the perception of tyranny, because they were all for real acts of fascism carried out by Obama!
