“What you are shouts so loud I cannot hear what you say.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson
If ever Emerson’s words were given better exposition than yesterday by the New York Times, I would be amazed.
In the Thursday Wall Street Journal, Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger complained about President Trump accusing the paper of treason. The headline said that Trump had “crossed a line” when he criticized the Times for revealing secret plans to combat cyberterrorism by Russia.
Later that same day, the New York Times proved Trump right once again by committing the ultimate act of treason by giving aid and comfort to the enemy when it disclosed the supposed war plans of Trump and his administration against Iran in retaliation for that nation’s downing of a U.S. military drone.
Here’s what the despicable, craven New York Times wrote in supporting Iran against our own government’s intended action:
President Trump approved military strikes against Iran in retaliation for downing an American surveillance drone, but pulled back from launching them on Thursday night after a day of escalating tensions.
As late as 7 p.m., military and diplomatic officials were expecting a strike, after intense discussions and debate at the White House among the president’s top national security officials and congressional leaders, according to multiple senior administration officials involved in or briefed on the deliberations.
Officials said the president had initially approved attacks on a handful of Iranian targets, like radar and missile batteries.
The operation was underway in its early stages when it was called off, a senior administration official said. Planes were in the air and ships were in position, but no missiles had been fired when word came to stand down, the official said.
It is impossible to find the words to describe this cowardly betrayal of our nation’s leadership unless you include treason in the mix.
Let the New York Times whine and wail. What they are shouts so loud that none of us should bother to listen to what they say.
My new book is “The Media Matrix: What If Everything You Know Is Fake,” which offers many examples of the press being the enemy of the truth. To support my work, please consider buying “The Media Matrix” or my “Why We Needed Trump” trilogy, which documents the downward spiral of the USA before Trump arrived on the scene. The books are available at Amazon in paperback or Kindle editions. Go here for a free sample: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/sitb/B07PDQBJM4
