Taken from Code Name Ghost, GMJ 31, unedited - to be released early March 2017
Taking the Mickey out of liberals is what we do best in GMJ Books, it is all fun and games and a sense of humour is needed in life but from their response I am sure that they lost whatever sense of humour they may have had, permanently on November 8, 2016. The other day a reader asked, I suspect she was a liberal before she met me, why I cannot just write about my wife and soul, Angelique, and leave political statements alone. The answer is simple, the GMJ Books are written to bring a message to you. They are read widely, in many countries and especially the Far East even if illegitimately so. My views may not be always politically correct but they are accurate – I explain and bring views to you that is not likely to be known widely because you are not in my world or from my world. I often warn what in the GMJ Books what damage “perception” are causing to America’s image abroad. Nothing happens in isolation anymore, the biggest problem the mainstream media faces today – they are exposed and no man or woman like being exposed. Thus, it is important to note down the hysteria and ill-advised comments from the leftist mainstreamers, their views should be kept on record, there is no “right to forget.”
Like millions of others, I too enjoyed the now notorious news conference of February 16, 2017, the one that would no doubt become famous as the one where mainstream media got slapped around and humiliated by a US President in ways that was never even dreamed of before. Of course, some will disagree with this view and did without fail: “This is not a laughing matter. I’m sorry delegitimizing the press is un-American.” NBC’s Chuck Todd (and delegitimising an elected President is not, eh? GMJ). “Mr. Trump’s presser was unhinged and wild.” CNN’s Jake Tapper (Really? It must be awkward to be called out in public as a fake news, excuse me, very fake news channel, by an elected commander-in-chief, GMJ), and so we can carry on, enjoying the cries of anguish and bogus righteousness coming from those feeding the public mushrooms for so long.
Yes, they had it coming, no doubt, I recall the New York Times journalist Denise Grady, supposed to be a great paper (perhaps before 1972, Angelique) writing the following crap about Barack Obama on his 50th birthday: “His brow is mostly smooth, his chin firm, his neck taut.” You should laugh at such cringeworthy fawning, is that news? Another reporter in 2017, after Mr Trump referred to the mainstream liars, sorry journalists, as the enemy of the American people: “The language that Mr. Trump deployed on Friday is more typically used by leaders to refer to hostile foreign governments or subversive organizations. It also echoed the language of autocrats who seek to minimize dissent.” Yeah, you have no idea what hostile governments do to reporters like you, come to Africa and wake up, you live in the land of freedom and prosperity. Even Barack Obama warned them: “What I’m concerned about is the degree to which reporting and information starts emphasizing the spectacle and the circus, because that’s not something we can afford in this election cycle. The American people, they’ve got good judgment, they’ve got good instincts - as long as they get good information. But, most importantly, and I speak to all of you in this room as reporters… I want to emphasize the degree to which we are in serious times and this is a really serious job. This is not entertainment. This is not a reality show. This is a contest for the Presidency of the United States… Every candidate, every nominee needs to be subject to exacting standards and genuine scrutiny. You have got to make sure that their budgets add up, if the way they’ve got an answer to a problem is actually plausible, that they Donald Trump have details for how it would work. And, if it’s completely implausible and would not work, that needs to be reported on. The American people need to know that. If they take a position on international issues that could threaten war, or has the potential of upending our critical relationships with other countries, or would potentially break the financial system, that needs to be reported on.”
Mr Obama made the above comments on May 6, 2016, about Donald Trump before he even became the front runner (supposedly he never was the front runner, Hilarious was going to win by a landslide according to the mainstream deceivers, oops, Angelique). He was telling the mainstream media to get their act sorted. History shows us that they did not. They went as far as being 90% plus negative towards the Republican Candidate, they could not help themselves in attacking everything he said or did, their bias so openly displayed that they became a serious embarrassment for the rest of the world, looking in. They did not, for instance, report nor show the pitifully small crowds wherever Hilarious Clinton spoke, they used camera angles to hide that fact. That should have been a warning sign and when anyone corrected them, asking them to report fairly, they responded haughtily by calling the other side “fake” news. When America decided at the voting pole that Donald Trump will be the next US President, they cried, really, they were showing the world what snowflakes they are, on national television too. They just could not stick a hand out and say “Good luck, Mr President!” No, they had to and continued unabated to deride, mock and disparage a man that did a lot of good since he took over.
It is a simple personality trait you learn in any Military and should have learned at your father’s knee before that. If you are wrong, in anything in life, man up and learn a lesson. Don’t keep on bumping your head and annoying those that feel differently - you can disagree without nastiness, a harsh word will get one back, unless willing to die, that is seldom the right road to take. Sadly, the worst critique after the Melbourne, Florida, rally, was against the First Lady, Melania Trump. Her “crime?” She started the meeting as follows: “Thank you. Let us pray. Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed is your name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespasses against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.” Yes, the Lord’s Prayer and immediately the hate started coming on Twitter and everywhere else. I am not bothering to repeat it here because it is unworthy, the snowflakes went into overdrive to denounce, to ridicule and to show the world how proud they are to be atheists, non-believers and whatever else they are which is nothing to admire. I have a message for such people, not that they will read my books, but anyway: “Say slowly after me, President Donald J Trump!” Repeat that as many times as possible and perhaps you will grow up and become less ridiculous.
Now the way the US Government operates is mysterious to most outsiders and that, according to most GMJ readers includes everyone outside Washington. It seems that all US Presidents are undercut by bureaucrats and it is not a new phenomenon either. Harry Truman once said about Dwight Eisenhower: “He’ll sit here, and he’ll say, ‘Do this! Do that!’ And nothing will happen. Poor Ike - it won’t be a bit like the Army.” How far does that go before it becomes treason? What do you think the rest of the world thinks when we hear that the US Intelligence Agencies are withholding intelligence from the President because they play partisan politics? Can you blame us if we feel contempt and walk away, declaring neutrality until you get your act sorted out? You cannot, I have been saying this repeatedly in many GMJ Books and those under my real name, afford neutrality when hunting terrorists. And by the way, Donald Trump is not ineffective nor scared of making decisions what should have been made decades ago already, he showed more leadership in one month that what was shown since Mr Reagan retired. Let me explain, again for historical accuracy. The first thing he did was to tell the NATO countries to get their act sorted: “No longer can the American taxpayer carry a disproportionate share of the defence of Western values. Americans cannot care more for your children’s security than you do. Disregard for military readiness demonstrates a lack of respect for ourselves, for the alliance and for the freedoms we inherited, which are now clearly threatened.” General Mattis, Secretary of Defence, 2017. This was immediately denounced by Angela Merkel, German Chancellor. She stated a bit arrogantly even for a German, that she will only start spending more money on defence in 2024 or somewhere in the distant future. In other words, let the US Taxpayer, that terribly abused fellow, pay for Germany’s defence as they always did since 1945. It is pathetic. I must wonder, what can possibly be wrong with expecting another country to start taking their security seriously, why should America carry them? It is completely insane and the warning to wake up and take responsibility long overdue. Yet, the mainstream media saw this as “abandonment” of Europe and US values, they need psychological help, desperately.
And then there was the so called “Muslim Ban” which was put in place to prevent terrorist attacks on US soil, a genuine and significant threat. Judge James L Robart asked: “How many arrests have there been of foreign nationals for those seven countries since 9/11?” The answer is: “At least 72 convicted terrorists came from the seven countries President Trump targeted in his extreme vetting executive order.” But sadly, the Justice Department lawyers did not know, why not, I wonder? Who briefed the lawyers so badly that they looked like losers? Do you know, that according to the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), no less than 30 of those mentioned above served more than 3 years for terrorism-related crimes. Do you know, that ISIS and Al-Qaeda many times said that they will abuse the refugee program to get terrorists into America and other Western Countries? Even Colonel Gadhafi warned as did Bashar al-Assad, the Syrian leader as I explained in the GMJ Books. What more evidence do you need? If Donald Trump fail to protect US citizens, all of them, he will be taken on and rightly so. And yet, the snowflakes saw the court victory as a reason for much celebration, teary eyed Hollywood stars once again made fools of themselves by declaring “resistance” and God knows what other foolishness. For us on the outside, the outcry and subsequent leaks that brought General Michael Flynn to a fall as National Security Advisor, said a lot. It showed us enough to wonder if it is worth our efforts to help the US in her War on Terror. The liberals and mainstream liars cost the US many friends and allies during the last few years. Americans will die in the future because of this, have no doubt.
