The False Trump-Chaos Narrative

I know Trump said dumb stuff. I ignored most of it because he governed well.  Quick vaccine, robust economy, pretty much destroyed ISIS. 

Biden, on the other hand, has mucked things up, has tried to divide the races, is incapable of problem-solving, and thinks Kamala is President.

Bill O’Reilly, Jan. 21, 2023

One of the storylines the Democrat News-media Complex (hereafter the DNC) created to smear Donald Trump is that his presidency was “chaotic”.  One hears that some Republicans are tired of the “chaos” and the “circus that surrounds” Trump.  In fact, as Bill O’Reilly, who did not start out supporting Trump, says, Trump “governed well”.  Inflation was brought down to 1.4%. The Southern Border was as orderly as it has been in decades.  Trump achieved the lowest unemployment rates in decades for blacks, Hispanics and women.  Trump made the US energy independent from unreliable foreign countries.  Trump “totally reorganized” the Veterans Administration and gave Veterans the right to use doctors of their choice.

Trump did many things to free up people, including minorities, who were incarcerated unjustly.  He “destroyed ISIS” whereas “under Obama-Biden ISIS ran wild”.  Trump signed 4 peace accords between Arab states and Israel.  O’Reilly states that “Trump was not soft on China but “Biden will be. Wait and see!”  Trump’s “Operation Warp Speed created a vaccine in less than a year” that all the geniuses said was impossible.  Despite the DNC’s unsupported smear that Trump was controlled by Putin, Trump was the only one of the last 4 presidents, including the DNC’s beloved Obama the Great, that did not see Russia invade a neighbouring country.  See O’Reilly’s discussion of Trump’s successes!

With all of Trump’s successes the DNC needed a narrative to smear Trump and came up with the counternarrative that the Trump presidency was chaotic.  In order to promote this narrative, the DNC themselves created chaos around Trump and then dishonestly blamed it on him.  The chaos of the multi-year Russian collusion hoax, generated by a fake Russian dossier paid for by Hillary Clinton and the Democrat National Committee to cheat the American people out of a fair election, was foisted on Trump by Democrats and their stenographers in our “news” media.  This was followed by a series of hoaxes, the “Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King from the Oval Office” hoax on the very first day Trump was in the Oval Office, the Lafayette Park Bible photo op hoax, the “Russia paid bounties to Afghans to kill US troops pushed right before the 2020 election and Trump didn’t care” hoax, the “Trump called all Mexicans rapists and drug traffickers” hoax, the “Trump told people to inject bleach to cure the Coronavirus hoax,” the Trump’s alleged Hati and Africa are s***hole countries” hoax, the “Trump said he grabs women by the p***y” hoax, the “Trump said the Coronavirus a hoax” hoax, the “Trump has never condemned white supremacists” hoax, the “Trump pressured Georgia officials to fabricate votes for him in Georgia in 2020” hoax, and so on and on and on. Creating chaos around Trump and then blaming it on Trump is the Left’s deliberate strategy and it continues, with a series of phony accusations and indictments, to the present day, a series of phony indictments that seems to be backfiring big time with the public.  The Democrats know that their propagandists in what remains of our “news” media will shamelessly push these hoaxes.  When, after the election, the hoaxes are exposed it will be too late and President McGoo will be in the White House.

It is true that Trump says “dumb things” that make it easy for the DNC to frame him.  Trump is a “roll up your sleeves, knock some heads and get things done” New York construction industry businessman, not a Princeton professor of English Literature.  But O’Reilly’s criticism must be qualified because most of the time Trump does not actually say the “dumb things” the DNC accuses him of saying.  Trump did not say that he grabs women by the p***y.  If one can read at the 7th grade level, which, apparently, most of the DNC cannot, one can verify that he said that “stars” (celebrities) do that, not that he does it.   Trump did not say that one can cure the Coronavirus by injecting bleach.  Reading the actual transcript of the discussion shows that Bill Bryan used the word “bleach” but competent 7th graders can verify that Trump only used the word “disinfectant.” Further, in the relevant sentence Trump asked a question: “And then I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it out in one minute. And is there a way we can do something like that by injection insidethe lungs”?  Although the DNC, including most of our “journalists” cannot, apparently distinguish between a question and an assertion, perhaps they can consult their first grade English language primer to see that Trump was asking a question, not stating a scientific thesis, which is precisely what one should do when one is talking to doctors about curing diseases.  Further, it was a relevant question because there is a promising medical practice  called photodynamic therapy of injecting disinfectants accompanied by light into the body to cure diseases.  It is not even clear that Trump made the “s**thole” remark the DNC attributed to him.  More recently, Kaitlan Collins stated that in the audiotape about the classified documents, Trump admits, “in his own words”, that he retained classified “documents”.  However, those are Collins’ words, not Trump’s.  Trump mentions “papers”, not “documents”.  These are journalists?  Can they even read?  In fact, few alleged “journalists” give any evidence they could pass a first-year community college critical reasoning course. 

  If one wants to see real chaos in the country, one need only look at the chaos and death at the southern border, including a record 853 killed in 2022, under Biden’s open borders policy, the chaos created by the inflation in the economy fostered by Biden’s reckless trillion dollar spending, the chaos in Biden’s incompetent Afghanistan withdrawal with people falling off airplanes and 13 US military blown to bits, the chaos in Ukraine war  with over 350,000 dead to the present time fostered by Biden’s weakness.  And though the DNC likes to claim that it is false that Biden’s VP Kamala Harris has called to defund the police, leading to the rampant chaos and lawlessness in major cities around the country, she has clearly called to move funds from the police to social services, job training, etc., which, in practice, leads to less funding for the police.  Even the left-leaning Snopes fact checkers admit that Kamala has made contradictory statements about defunding the police.

O’Reilly is correct that though Trump sometimes says strange things, he governed well.  Even liberal feminist like Naomi Wolf is no longer even sure she should dislike Trump,

[Do I] like President Trump? Who knows? I have been lied to about him so much for so long … [by the] legacy media … I can‘t tell whether my instinctive aversion is simply the habituated residue of years of being on the receiving end of lies [told to me by] the legacy media.

It is, therefore, disgraceful that some alleged “Republicans” are so eager to submit to such dishonest DNC narratives.  If weak Republicans from Maine through Kentucky and Utah to Alaska cannot see this perhaps the RNC should gift each of them with their seeing-eye dogs although a lack of spine may be the real problem.

  1. Finally an article that I enjoyed. It is so rare lately to read anything thta is so well written and makes sense to me. I an 85 years old and was beginning to think that maybe because of my age I was often so distressed with what we read in certain papers or heard on the TV. Bravo!

  2. I’m not averse to admit that I like Donald Trump. Had he a normal relationship with the MSM and the “alphabet houses”, he would have had an incredibly historical presidency. None-the-less President Trump was indeed successful in spite of it all.

    McDonough reminds us with clarity that Mr. Trump had a remarkable list of achievements despite withering opposition from the day of his Inauguration.
    Here’s the thing, while a Republican, voting D. Is something I’ve done 3 times, Carter, Clinton (once) and Obama, which I regret, but the R. guy each time were duds. What to do in 24′?
    If the current Trump trajectory towards incarceration continues, it’s Mr. Robert (Bobby) Kennedy Jr. for me. I’ve watched him closely and I think he’s got JFK and RFK in his political DNA big time. Couple that with a natural, inherited centrist philosophy, and drive to fullfill his dad’s legacy and bingo, he’s my guy.
