Trump’s approval ratings above mainstream media and Democratic Party
His base is solid. Support by Republicans is third-highest approval among a president’s own party during a new president’s first six months in office
After four months of suffering through their post election traumatic news disorder, the East Coast-based media establishment and Hollywood remain out of touch with a possible majority of Americans.
The latest Harvard-Harris poll, reported by The Hill, revealed that 65 percent of U.S. voters believe the mainstream media reports a lot of fake news. Trump’s job approval rating is up to 45 percent. The media and press is 32 percent. Seventy-four percent of American voters say the recent White House and government leaks are a vital matter that should be investigated.
A major reason the media couldn’t (and still can’t grasp) predict the election of Donald J. Trump as President, was from their own self infliction. Trump took advantage of their disconnected and disturbing traits.
Today it remains difficult for mainstream media to realize just how broken–fragmented and more open to disinformation, spoon fed misinformation and outright far-out lies–they are.
Trump began his campaign knowing the media promoted and sustained such stories as a video causing the attack in Benghazi, the Obama “you can keep your doctor” type hoaxes, and the Hillary Clinton email/Clinton Foundation scandals.
It was the media, always desperate for ratings, revenue and rewards, who blissfully blessed Trump with millions of dollars worth of free coverage during the campaign.
Meanwhile, Americans watch as the media and Hollywood unsoundly reveal themselves. They irrationally place their political ideologies ahead of credible business ethics. It’s to the point that the millions of citizens are no longer offended or feel isolated by their ‘political correct’ games and narratives. Mainstream media outlets are doomed for failing the most important litmus test of journalism—Accuracy.
A case in point occurred last month when CNN retracted their article implying the US Senate Intelligence Committee was looking into the meeting of Trump’s aide Anthony Scaramucci and Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) CEO Kirill Dmitriev. Three CNN reporters involved in the story resigned. Scaramucci went on to become Trump’s new White House Communications Director.
A Bloomberg News poll just last week show that the Democratic Party now has a 48 percent unfavorable rating, an increase from this time last year.
Here are five important things most mainstream media did not report over the weekend that Americans should know.

Even as gas prices have fallen to the lowest point in years under President Trump, Senate Minority Leader is claiming the price of petrol has only gone up. The nationwide price for gas closed the week of July 17th at $2:39/gallon, down from $2.47/gallon when Trump took office. Over the July 4th holiday weekend, gas prices were at their lowest point since 2005, according to the AAA.
Emails Reveal More Instances of Clinton Donors Receiving Special Treatment from Clinton Department of State Judicial Watch
The public now has access to “448 pages of documents from the U.S. Department of State revealing new incidents of Huma Abedin, deputy chief of staff to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, providing special State Department treatment to major donors to the Clinton Foundation and political campaigns.
The heavily redacted documents from Abedin’s non-government account include an email from Hillary Clinton’s brother, Tony Rodham, to Abedin revealing that he acted as a go-between for a Clinton Foundation donor, Richard Park. And they reveal Clinton Foundation executive Doug Band instructing Abedin to “show love” to Clinton donor Andrew Liveris.
The documents included six Clinton email exchanges not previously turned over to the State Department, bringing the known total to date to at least 439 emails that were not part of the 55,000 pages of emails that Clinton turned over to the State Department, and further contradicting a statement by Clinton that, “as far as she knew,” all of her government emails had been turned over to the State Department.”
Exposing the New York Times’ hypocrisy on Jeff Sessions New York Post
Robert Mueller “is effectively unsupervised, and free to do pretty much whatever he wants for as long as he wants. No president, nor any other American, should be subject to an unrestrained prosecutor…The current course is a potential disaster not just for the president, but for the nation. Democrats and the left-wing journalists who never reconciled themselves to Trump’s victory now see Mueller as their political avenger, and he seems to be accepting the role with relish, voters be damned…Trump is nobody’s punching bag, and his staff changes and public complaints about Sessions, Mueller and Rosenstein show he is ready to fight back.”
With the appointment of Sarah Huckabee Sanders as the new White House Press Secretary following the resignation of Sean Spicer, women now represent the administration at the West Wing, the Pentagon, the Justice Department and the State Department.
U.S. House Reveals Budget That Balances The Political Insider
We haven’t had a balanced budget since the Eisenhower Administration (contrary to popular belief, the Clinton surplus was nothing more than an accounting trick). The House Budget Committee unveiled its Building A Better America 2018 budget Tuesday, which is balanced and achieves a $9 billion surplus in 10 years and increases GDP growth to 2.6 percent.
