Book Review: “Fear: Trump in the White House” by Bob Woodward

Guardian 6           Spokane, Washington

Dateline August 1st, 2018

Timed perfectly to support the Democratic Socialists Party (formerly known as Democrats) in the fall of 2018 Midterm elections, Mr. Woodward brings forth a major hit job on President Trump and his administration. Sure to be replete with tens of anonymous sources, administration intrigue on backroom policy arguments and Trump family infighting and gossip, expect to get a heavy dose of Bob Woodward on all the MSM channels in October. The Washington Post will run a Woodward series highlighting different chapters of the book for a week getting a sales bump of 70 papers to their daily circulation; CNN will begin advertising the Woodward interviews in September with that serious journalist known as Chris Cuomo; and Chris Matthews will get another tingle down his leg when he reads his advance copy. Doesn’t this Democratic Party (now the Democratic Socialist Party) playbook get old? Not a very creative lot, maybe even MSNBC gets thrown a life line for Morning Joe and Woodward graces his show as a guest to support his high school auditorium national audience. Bob’s publicist and publisher is surely working overtime booking all the MSM networks.

We can expect Fear to feature many chapters on Russia, the collusion narrative and Bob Mueller and the 13, now 17, Angry Democrats (now Angry Democratic Socialists). Bob will lead with, “what did Trump know and when did he know it?” Bob will paint a picture of guilt by association with Trump’s global business ties leaving the reader to make their own damning conclusions. Mr. Woodward will likely paint a picture of racism over Charlottesville, immigration, The Wall and referring to Third World countries as shitholes. Expect a litany of attacks on Trump’s fitness for office by many anonymous sources including medical “professionals” in and around the Swamp. Let’s just say they will argue that President Trump is not a stable genius. This line of attack will be supported by how un-presidential Trump is by attacking the media, assigning nicknames and his use of Twitter bypassing the media. The book will feature family turmoil, Don Jr.’s divorce, Melania not happy in the White House, disgruntled cabinet officials that have been let go, etc. Lastly, Fear would be incomplete without Trump’s attacks on NATO, how he got played by North Korea and how tariffs are bad for America. Lots of false narratives for Mr. Woodward to repeat.

For presidential historians and the 62 million Americans that voted for President Trump, how the president responds to Fear will make this worth watching. As we all know by now, Trump has his own playbook that fully leverages 21st century technologies in social media; he stays on offense countering false narratives; he takes the message directly to the people through rallies, Twitter, and daily press conferences; in a word, President Trump fights. While Fear and Mr. Woodward will get some initial headlines, it is also highly likely to get drowned out by what is 24 x 7 Trump hate. Another day, another batch of smug, arrogant, self-righteous elite liberals screaming about Trump.

The 53rd Regiment assessment of Fear: One big Yawn, look for Fear in the used book bin. Pay no more than .50 cents.

Fake News & The Walking Dead

Dateline March 18, 2018

The Swamp

When did the news become fake? As the 53rd Regiment examined this issue, we discovered some common threads  and a couple key elements that have corrupted the news profession resulting in the loss of public trust.  Mainstream TV news broadcasts and major newspapers are failing and losing their audience. Why?

Element One. Democratic politicians joined news rooms, editorial boards and became on air personalities. The news became less about the facts and more about pushing their liberal agendas. To name a few: (1)  George Stephanopoulos, former Clinton Press Secretary, with ABC (2) Jay Carney, MSNBC Contributor, former Obama Press Secretary, married to Claire Shipman ABC (3) Ben Rhodes, former Obama Deputy National Security Advisor in Obama Administration, is the brother of CBS News President Ben Rhodes (4) Chris Cuomo of CNN, brother of Democratic Governor of NY Andrew Cuomo. We could spend all day naming the liberal connections to the news media. The Democratic Party and the news networks are one in the same. Conservatives or non-partisans need not apply to work in the media.

Element Two. Late night comedy has been high jacked by the left. These shows have become extensions of the liberal base and they are not very funny anymore. Jimmy Kimmel,  Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers and the list goes on. Nobody wants to end their day listening to these comedic elites spew their hatred and carry their collectivist messages for the democrats. Sadly, many of these shows now believe their job is to inform the masses and shape American opinion instead of comedy.

Element Three. Sporting news network such as ESPN have turned hard left with broadcasters openly ridiculing the President on air and in social media forums. Sporting networks have openly backed the disrespect shown to military Veterans by NFL athletes choosing  to side with the extreme minority of players instead of keeping the focus on the game.

When you combine these three elements, we have the Walking Dead fabricating the news, pushing their agendas and losing the American public due to their ideology driven broadcasts. News shows can’t be trusted, newspapers are collapsing and sporting events are being destroyed by the left. Americans are speaking by tuning out but the Walking Dead running and ruining these networks would rather push their leftist agenda than report real news!

8. Using LTG(R) Michael Flynn as a Pawn and indicting him after FBI agents said he did not lie in the official FBI 302. How did this happen?

The Media Industrial Complex

Dateline February 10th, 2018 

The Swamp

While it is clear the Obama Administration weaponized the FBI, DoJ and Intelligence Community against the Trump Campaign, the Media Industrial Complex (MIC) has no curiousity as the US Constitution and civil liberties were tore to shreds. As the phony dossier was used as the basis to get court approval for a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Agency (FISA) wiretap, the US federal government was unleashed against Trump and his associates. Special Prosecutor Mueller should refocus 100% of his energies and resources on these crimes but the question remains, is he part of the MIC Coupe? The coming six months should reveal how strong the Deep State is and how an unlikely President revealed decades of corruption within our government.  

Dateline December 21st, 2017 – Original Article follows:

The Media Industrial Complex (MIC), a committee of the top five failing news media outlets in the US (CNN, MSNBC, the NY Times, The Washington Post, CBS and ABC/ESPN), has self-imposed their collective purpose to destroy the Trump presidency by reporting falsehoods, conspiring with the Democratic Party and creating fake news 24/7 to ensure everything they report on the Trump presidency is negative. Like the Chinese Politburo Standing Committee (PSC) or former Soviet Union they believe they can control public opinion and ensure a failed Trump presidency through lies and manipulation. To quote Candidate Trump from the debate stage, “wrong!” Their negativity and fake news is the wind in Trump’s sail. The MIC is a threat to America as they work to shape thought and punish those that disagree with them. 

It’s ironic that President Trump, not always a man of virtue like most of us, is built to take on decades of institutional rot in government, the economy, foreign policy and the failing MIC. It is priceless to watch the media elites struggle and demonstrate their fragile psyches trying to match wit with a president they treat with such little regard as they own the headlines and airwaves each day. However, in 140 characters or less, President Trump puts them on the ropes, knocks them down on the mat and showcases them for the elites that they really are. The most amazing thing overall that Americans have learned from Trump is the MIC is composed of liars, incompetents and sycophants that conspire each day to undermine America and undermine the American voters that put President Trump in office.

Put yourself in Trump’s shoes for a minute and think about the media assaults and deep state attacks he withstands each day.  Most people would wilt or quit under this relentless pressure. Not Trump. Like President Lincoln said of General Grant, “he fights” and it is a glorious thing to observe. Here is a billionaire President who is putting America First centering policy on the “forgotten man” and putting allies and foes alike on notice directly telling them the United States will not be taken advantage of anymore. No more apologies, no more bad trade deals and no more remaining silent while Americans, the Forgotten Man, continues to be on the losing end of the deal.

President Trump has exposed the Media Induistrial Complex, the political establishment and lobbyists that reside in The Swamp for the self-serving lot that they are. For the last several decades the will of the American people has been secondary to special interests, political correctness and the whims of the elites while Congress and The Swamp enriched themselves at the expense of the American people. It took a blue collar billionaire to fully expose what most Americans suspected; the 53rd Regiment finds it refreshing to watch President Trump put the twitter spotlight on the failing MIC (CNN, MSNBC, the NY Times, The Washington Post, CBS and ABC/ESPN) while the establishment and elitists scatter like cockroaches looking for cover under old appliances and cabinets.

The Clown Car is Rolling

The Swamp, Dateline January 17th, 2018

The Clown Car that is the White House Press Pool was on full display yesterday interrogating the White House physician, Navy Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson on President Trump’s health. Much to their disappointment, Dr. Jackson declared President Trump to be in “excellent health.”

As the phony Russian dossier and collusion loses steam,  the press pushes a new false narrative that the president has dementia, or early onset Alzheimer’s disease or some other psychosis that would build the case to remove him from office. Once again, the press was very disappointed with the results when Dr. Jackson explained the  cognitive exam he administered on President Trump resulted in a perfect score of 30 out of 30 questions answered correctly.

Here are a few of the “serious” questions asked by the press in the Clown Car during yesterday’s press conference:

ABC News chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl asked, “Can you explain to me how a guy who eats McDonald’s and fried chicken and all those Diet Cokes and who never exercises is in as good of shape as you say he’s in?”

NBC News reporter Hallie Jackson noted that Trump’s weight put him just shy of obesity, based on body mass index, and asked the doctor, “You’re confident of that number? Dr. Jackson said yes.

Other gems included:

“Does the president watch too much TV?”

“Is he limited to one scoop of ice cream?”

“Did you address drug addiction?”

Much to the Clown Cars disappointment, President Trump is in “excellent health.” However, this hasn’t put their narrative to bed as they continue to question Dr. Jackson’s exam, the president’s health and his fitness to office. The only thing slowing the clown car down on this topic is #shithole gate which is the presses new foil for Trump being a racist. Clown Car madness continues.

On a more serious note, there are a few Clown Car questions:

  1. Who is driving the Clown Car? MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough or CNN’s Jay Tapper or maybe Jim Acosta
  2. Is the Clown Car gas,  electric or foot powered?
  3. Is Keith Olberman or Stephen Colbert in charge of honking the horn?
  4. Did MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow or Laurence O’Donnell design the clown outfits?
  5. Who is funding the Clown Car?
  6. Who are the Dark Clowns?

Toxic News

The Swamp

Dateline January 9th, 2018

There are elements of Fake News regarding the Trump presidency that are surreal to watch.  The hate, the orchestrated phony presentations, the ignorant partisan guests and the out right contemptuous behavior toward the 45th President of the United States is without precedent. In a word, the “mainstream media” has become toxic.

Each morning, beginning from 6 – 9 AM EST, MSNBC Morning Joe & CNN New Day dump toxic words of waste on the American public without fail. Both shows are a three hour hit job on the president. There is zero news, just three hours of Joe Scarborough and Chris Cuomo presenting fake toxic news with condescension, immaturity and little regard for the dignity of the Office of the Presidency. These two fabricators masquerading as newsmen are much more interested in reading their own headlines and securing accolades from their leftwing peers. Their broadcasts are never interrupted with real news or facts, just spew.

The 53rd Regiment strongly recommends you avoid these toxic broadcasts of hate, misinformation and toxicities. People want to start their day with an uplifting message, not this trifle and inconsolable hate directed at President Trump and those that voted for him!

Enjoy your day folks by avoiding the Scarborough and Cuomo toxic dump.
