The Media Lies… Question EVERYTHING!

Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump has more in common with Israel than many would think. Besides wanting to protect their borders to keep their people safe, both recognize the enemy humanity faces; radical Islam. Last but not least, they are both at war with the media.

Media is not what it used to be, where it reported the truth and news to the world to inform people about what is going on in the world. Today, media is biased with either wanting ratings to make more money or forcing and manipulating people to follow its agenda.

Donald Trump has been earning supporters throughout America and even around the world. Yet there are bogus media articles claiming Donald Trump will drop out or he will snap etc. etc. because Donald Trump is a different type of Presidential candidate that America is not used to. Specifically, he tells it how it really is. He is not afraid to put people on the spot and hold them accountable. He can work with many people from all different back grounds. He has excellent plans on how to make America great and safe again, many of which are detailed on his own official website.

Media says differently. Mainstream media lately has been liberal, sticking with the false narratives that the Obama administration has put out. Hillary Clinton will be a 4 year extension of that administration. As you can see with many of the headlines, all are focused on what Trump does or says and goes as far as taking things out of context to earn that rating. This needs to stop. I believe in freedom of the press but spreading lies with agendas is not ok.

Israel faces similar media messaging and propaganda problems:

Hamas and other radical Islamic terror organizations are experts to the uneducated when it comes to their manipulation of the media. They post photos through Pallywood claiming it to be Gaza when it was actually Syria. They have also reported “cruelty” from “IDF” soldiers pointing weapons at children when it was Arabs in disguise and an expert can tell you why by pointing out the flaws of the uniform. Even the headlines are misleading. There are many headlines from CNN, CNBC, and MSN reporting that a few Palestinians have been killed without saying why or they display in small print saying the reason they were killed was because they were involved in a radical Islamic terror attack.

Liberal media and Pallywood try to portray Israel as this evil apartheid empire which is far from the truth. Just like liberal media portrays Donald Trump as this crazy person with radical ideas who should drop out so people can vote for someone they feel is right. This is not news but lies and it needs to stop. Here is how you can help Donald Trump and Israel when you see the lies. Question everything. Do the research. Show the proof that Trump cares about all Americans and that Israel only responds in self-defense. Share with the public that all they want is to be able to care for their people. You know the media won’t do it!
