Donald Trump finally made the cover of Time Magazine, but not really in the way he had probably intended. But first, a little preface to this story...Democrats have made a huge deal out of the situation on our border with Mexico where families are being held in processing centers so they can be interviewed and dealt with.
In some cases, illegal immigrants, who have obviously broken the law, are separated from their children and they are held in segregated facilities. This is because they have broken the law. This is a policy that has been in place since Bill Clinton was in office, but Attorney General Jeff Sessions instituted a zero tolerance policy on an already existing law. In other words Sessions and Trump decided they would actually enforce an already existing 3 decade old law. Oh, the horror.
But back to Time magazine and the cover featuring President Trump and a little, crying immigrant girl who has become the face of Trump’s so called, evil immigration policy. The trouble with the photo and the Time cover is, it is a fabrication. It’s disinformation. It is fake news, plain and simple.
The young girl was never separated from her mother, although she made the dangerous decision to pay $6,000 to take her child from Honduras, across the stifling heat of the deserts of Mexico, completely against the wishes of the girl’s father.
So, the mother willingly separated her daughter from the girl’s father and then once she got to America, she got caught sneaking across the border. And the picture, that picture that the media burned into our brains to sensationalize a 30 year old issue and further their own agenda, that picture was taken when the child’s mother simply put her down because she was talking to ICE agents. It didn’t happen because they had been separated. It didn’t happen because Donald Trump is cruel. It didn’t happen because Jeff Sessions is targeting “brown people.” It didn’t happen because Trump is a Nazi, and it didn’t happen because Trump wants to send a message to illegal immigrants. The young, scared little girl started crying because her mother was holding her, and put her down.
That’s it. That’s the extent of the story. That’s all there is to it, there is nothing else going on here, but instead, it was a heart wrenching picture of a crying girl, and the media, and now Time magazine, purposely used it to create an entirely false narrative. They created a story out of nothing, out of thin air, as they usually do, not because it was true, but because they wanted to further their agenda, whether it was just to get clicks, or for something much more sinister, whatever that might be, what they did, was make up something for their own purposes.
And that right there, that is the story of fake news.
We have a crisis on our southern border and instead of Democrats and media looking for a solution to the crisis, they parade their moral superiority as they cheer the defeat of Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy. They’re proud of themselves. They pat themselves on the back thinking they won a victory, but they’re still upset at Trump for a myriad of reasons. Not for anything concrete, but just because they have to pick something next on the spinning wheel of topics they think they need to be outraged about.
All they are doing is simply looking for more clicks because that is their business.
And I’ll conclude with the words from an article by Pat Buchanan in World Net Daily that sums up the larger crisis we are facing, but Democrats refuse to see:
Half a century ago, Houari Boumedienne, the leader of a poor but militant Algeria, allegedly proclaimed at the United Nations:
“One day, millions of men will leave the Southern Hemisphere to go to the Northern Hemisphere. And they will not go there as friends. Because they will go there to conquer it. And they will conquer it with their sons. The wombs of our women will give us victory.”
This is the existential crisis the West faces today.
And the alarming thing is, Democrats and the willing liberal media are actively assisting in furthering that crisis. They will go down in history as equal accomplices to the sacking of western civilization.
