Who’d have thought that the report of Russian soldiers putting bounties on the heads of American soldiers would somehow become national news?
Not because it shouldn’t be talked about, but because it’s been happening for DECADES—and it happens on both sides of the trench.
This isn’t hearsay or untrustworthy secondhand information…
This came STRAIGHT from a Special Forces vet, who explained how it’s weird that people are caring about this when it’s been around for years and our guys do the same thing.
He explained how this is something the soldiers deal with on their own. The troops with their actual boots on the ground deal with the bounties issue amongst themselves. Very rarely do these things make their way up the chain of command, much less to the office of the Commander-in-Chief.
But here we are, talking about it. Why? Because the Left thinks it’s something that can make Trump look bad.
BREAKING NEWS! Powell Declares Mainstream Media “Hysterical”
Can you imagine a president that doesn’t care about his troops?
He’d be DISPICABLE…
And that’s the exact image the Left wants to create for Trump—a president, a Commander-in-Chief that doesn’t care about the men and women in his armed forces.
But we know that isn’t the case…
Everything Trump had done since taking office has been to strengthen and support our troops, not weaken them or put them in danger.
It’s ridiculous to even talk about…
But we have to discuss it because the Left loves to politicize and weaponize everything they can in order to stay in power.
So, in these times, it’s best to turn to the experts…
Former General Colin Powell is an expert.
He’s served under multiple presidents and has experience in the ways of war…
He also doesn’t like Trump. In fact, he’s a GOP member who has already pledged his support for Joe Biden, so it would actually behoove him to condemn the president for his lack of action in the matter of bounties on American lives – but he didn’t do that.
In fact, he told the Liberal media to take a proverbial “chill pill”.
In an appearance on MSNBC, Powell told host, Andrea Mitchell: “What I know is that our military commanders on the ground did not think that it was as serious a problem as the newspapers were reporting and television was reporting. It got kind of out of control before we really had an understanding of what had happened. I’m not sure we fully understand now.”
Is the general saying that the mainstream media jumped to a conclusion before they had any shred of evidence to back up their claims?
Sounds like it…
And it’s their MO in the 21st Century news cycle. Run with the rumor, and then don’t apologize for misreporting.
This is the status quo in reporting now…
And it’s not surprising that Powell called them out.
The TRUE Reason MSM Ran With This Fallacy
He continued, “Remember, it’s not the intelligence community that’s going to go fight these guys. It’s the guys on the ground, it’s our troops, it’s our commanders who are going to go deal with this kind of a threat, using intelligence that was given to them by the intelligence community. But that has to be analyzed, it has to be adjusted, and then you have to go find out who the enemy is. And I think we were on top of that one, but it just got — it got almost hysterical in the first few days.”
“It got almost hysterical in the first few days.”
The mainstream media, in their rush to break a story that would make the president look TERRIBLE (especially if he were briefed on the matter and did nothing) didn’t have all the facts—but they ran with it anyway.
It’s a total sham…maybe even a scam.
Either way, it’s nothing more than another attempt to make our president seem inept and unqualified for the job at hand.
However, if a Never-Trumper like Powell can denounce the media’s hysteria over something that RARELY reaches the Oval Office…
You can bet it’s gospel.
If you don’t think Powell would JUMP at the chance to make Trump look bad, you’d be mistaken. He wants Trump gone just as much as the Leftists do.
No, the difference between Powell and other Leftists is the fact that he has honor when it comes to his service and his brothers and sisters in uniform.
He wouldn’t dishonor them by perpetuating a lie…
And it just goes to show you that even though people can disagree politically, it doesn’t make them bad people.
Thank you, General Powell, for telling the truth on this…
America deserves and appreciates it.
