Fake News Proliferating Inciter in Chief NYT
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
NYT misreporting and disreporting on Trump’s sham Senate trial follows its longstanding practice of featuring unfit to print news and information.
In its latest edition, the Times pushed the Big Lie claim that Trump’s legal team and he sought “to overturn the election and goad supporters to” riot on Capitol Hill.
Trump, lawyers on his legal team, and GOP supporters sought to expose and reverse brazen election fraud by Dems in cahoots with US dark forces and Big Media that elevated Biden/Harris to power illegitimately.
So-called “never-before-seen security footage from the Jan. 6 Capitol riot” showed in the Senate chamber — misreported by the Times — was all about bussed in anti-Trump hooligans storming Capitol Hill’s main building, aided by its guards and other security elements.
DJT and his team had nothing to do with what was orchestrated by dark forces against him.
Instead of setting the record straight, the Times continued its steady drumbeat of Big Lies and mass deception — inventing its own reality far removed from the real thing.
The following rubbish reads like something straight from Joseph Goebbels’ playbook, the Times saying:
“Filling the Senate chamber with the profane screams of the attackers, images of police officers being brutalized, and near-miss moments in which Vice President Mike Pence and lawmakers came steps away from confronting a mob hunting them down, the prosecutors made an emotional case that Mr. Trump’s election lies had directly endangered the heart of American democracy (sic).”
“They played frantic police radio calls warning that ‘we’ve lost the line,’ body camera footage showing an officer pummeled with poles and fists on the West Front of the Capitol…”
“All of it (Dems) said was the foreseeable and intended outcome of Mr. Trump’s desperate attempts to cling to the presidency (sic).”
“(T)hey traced how he spent months cultivating not only the ‘big lie’ (sic) that the election was ‘rigged’ against him (sic), but stoking the rage of a throng of supporters who made it clear that they would do anything — including resorting to violence — to help him (sic).”
The above trash reporting reflects typical Times managed news misinformation and disinformation — far removed from truth and full disclosure it long ago banned in its editions.
On January 6, Trump supporters in Washington were nonviolent.
Anti-Trump thugs were responsible for storming Capitol Hill and what violence followed.
What happened was an orchestrated plot by anti-Trump dark forces to falsely blame him for what he had nothing to do with.
Times Big Lies and mass deception pretend otherwise — part of its endless anti-Trump jihad for the wrong reasons, ignoring legitimate ones.
Former constitutional law professor, lead politicized show trial manager, undemocratic Dem Rep. Jamie Raskin lied claiming that Trump “surrendered his role as commander in chief and became the inciter in chief of a dangerous insurrection (sic).”
The above and related Big Lies expose witch hunt Senate trial proceedings no legitimate tribunal would tolerate.
Dems lack credible evidence to push for Trump’s conviction so they invented a litany of Big Lies that reinvent what happened on Capitol Hill last month.
After Tuesday’s 56 – 44 vote to continue proceedings fell well short of a super-majority needed to convict Trump, acquittal of the phony inciting insurrection charge should be automatic.
According to Bloomberg News, Senate GOP Minority Leader McConnell is undecided on whether he’ll vote for acquittal or conviction, adding:
He’s “been telling Republican senators since mid-January that this would be a ‘vote of conscience.’ ”
While conviction of Trump remains highly unlikely, will McConnell push for 17 more GOP senators needed for a super-majority to make him the first ever US president – now a former one — found guilty in Senate trial proceedings.
If happens, it’ll be on the phony inciting insurrection charge with no legitimacy.
Whatever happens ahead, events since early last year show how far the US fell from grace.
No longer what its founders long ago created, it’s a rule of the jungle society.
A free and open one safe and fit to live in no longer exists.
That’s the cold hard truth about a nation off-the-rails, a totalitarian one on a fast track toward full-blown tyranny.
What the Times and other Big Media should expose and condemn, they wholeheartedly endorse and cheerlead.
