Fake news: Trump not considering calling up 100,000 National Guard troops to round up illegal aliens

AP gets it wrong.

Maybe someone can explain this to the news media, because they either don't understand it or don't care about it:

When you get information from anonymous sources, sometimes what they give you is rubbish. And why not? They're not attaching their names to it. They won't get in trouble for doing it because you're going to protect their identities. So they'll give you things, you'll run with it, and later you'll look like fools because what you were given was worthless.

That's what happened to the Associated Press this morning when they ran with a memo written in late January by Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly. The memo supposedly talked about calling up 100,000 National Guard troops to help round up illegal aliens for a mass deportation.

Now, there was something written by Kelly. That's true. It did not ever mention the number 100,000 or any other specific number with respect to how many National Guard troops would be needed for the task. But this is all academic anyway, because it was like a lot of internal memos that get written for internal consumption. It was an idea. It was never seriously considered. It is not going to happen. It was never going to happen.

So the AP story claiming it was under serious consideration was total Bolshevik. It is fake news:

But DHS spokeswoman Gillian Christensen said the memo, dated Jan. 25, was an early draft document that was not seriously considered.

"The department is not considering mobilizing the National Guard,'' Christensen said in a statement to USA TODAY.

The memo was first reported Friday by the Associated Press, which drew an angry response from the White House. Press secretary Sean Spicer said the AP report was "100% not true."

“It is false,” he said. “It is irresponsible to be saying this.”

Now there are some in the political class who are saying this isn't fake news because the memo really exists and it was really written. That does not excuse the story from being fake news, because the AP presented the memo as something other than what it really is. It is not an idea under serious consideration. It was one person's thought thrown in the hopper, probably among many others, and ultimately rejected for all kinds of reasons.

When you obtain a document from an anonymous source who won't lend his or her name publicly to the story, you have to realize that means no one can hold your source accountable for being wrong or misleading in what you're being told. Readers also can't judge the veracity of the information by the credibility of the source, because we don't know who it is. We just have to trust the AP.

Now, the AP thought it had the goods because it had a memo written by a cabinet-level official. But just because Kelly wrote the memo doesn't mean the policy idea it contemplated is, or ever was, under serious consideration. It's not. End of story. There is no story.

MY SUGGESTION FOR TRUMP..........CALL UP THE ENTIRE NATIONAL GUARD....THEN GO OUT AND ROUND UP / ARREST  EVERY SINGLE : DEMOCRAT & GOP R.I.N.O.  AND ALL MUSLIMS IN OUR GOV'T AGENCIES AND CONGRESS......AND LOCK THEM ALL UP IN GITMO !!!!!!

YES. let's start there!

Darn.  I wish that one was true.

Do it and while you at it round up the CNN (Clinton News network), CBS (Communists Broadcast System) and the orthers too and get the country back on track.

i am sick to death of lame street media and their bogus crap

I wish it were true!

This is nothing more then to undermine President Trumps  authority.   They know what they are doing.

OKAY. AP bit into a bad apple and became the Asinine Press. But on the other hand, the idea of 100,000 National Guardsmen being used to address  the foriegn national incursions of millions of their illegal alien citizens into this country has its utility. Hmmm....................

This is why no one believes the media, it is a total waste of time.  Walk your Dog, or go to a Movie, take in a Ball Game.  SHUT IT OFF!!!!

BREAKING: Hillary Admits She Was Wrong About ‘Deplorables,’
White Nationalists Only ‘0.15%’ Of U.S. Population

(TeaParty.org) – Hillary Clinton, the failed liberal presidential candidate who sealed her fate by slamming half of U.S. voters as a load of racist, sexist, xenophobic “deplorables,” just came out and admitted she was wrong, Breitbart reports.

Speaking with Hugh Hewitt on his radio show about her book “What Happened,” he asked her if she actually believes that half of the American population are white nationalists and racists.

“Of the 62.9 million people who voted for President Trump, do you have a number in your mind that you think are actually white nationalist racists of that 62.9 million, a real number?” he asked.

“No, I don’t,” she said.

Still have any doubts? Later in the conversation, Hewitt asked the same question again. “Do you think there are more than a half million, you know, honest-to-God white nationalists running around the United States?”

Clinton: “Probably not, no.”

A white nationalist would like to establish a sovereign country for people of white European heritage, an idea everyone across the political spectrum finds unspeakably intolerable and offensive. Now, the woman who declared that this was the desire of more than half of Americans is saying that virtually nobody wants it. On both counts, she’s completely wrong.

There’s no doubt that Clinton is probably going to try running again for president in 2020 – if she’s even alive that long – and might be trying to absolve her guilt and pander to all those “undecideds” who instantly went MAGA the second she blasted them as no-good racist deplorables for not voting Democrat.

However, Clinton did later admit that there were more white nationalists in America than she had thought. Expressing her worries that the internet and the presidency of Trump is giving them a voice and a platform, she hinted that under her iron scepter, she will attempt to silence them.

“Unfortunately, their views, which used to be quite beyond the mainstream, you know, have a much broader audience now, because you know, of being online and having outlets and media presence that can promote those attitudes,” she said.

How many white nationalists are there in the United States? That’s a question with troublingly few answers, since for some mysterious reason the liberal mainstream media – even though it claims all the time that white supremacy is on the rise – hasn’t actually bothered to take polls and just ask people whether they are white nationalists.

Actually, there’s a simple answer to that. If such a poll were to be taken, our bet is that liberals would be very disappointed to discover that almost nobody is actually a white nationalist, and so there would be no way they could continue scaring people with those fears. A tactic Clinton has apparently given up on.

Left-wingers are entirely convinced that some vague but large majority of people who say they aren’t racists or white nationalists, actually share a lot of views with them – which is why Nazi and white supremacist have become interchangeable with Republican and libertarian.

An article by Newsweek, which polled around 5,000 in order address this very question, came up with this response:

About 70 percent of respondents strongly agreed that people of different races should be “free to live wherever they choose” and that “all races are equal,” and 89 percent agreed that all races should be treated equally. At the same time, 31 percent of respondents said they strongly or somewhat agreed that the country needs to “protect and preserve its White European heritage,” while 34 percent strongly or somewhat disagreed and 29 percent said they neither agreed nor disagreed.

Reality is, it’s a little true that some Americans do have overlapping views with white nationalists, but the overwhelming majority of respondents STRONGLY believe that the races should be free, are equal, and should be treated equally. Sounds like none of these respondents would be joining a lynch mob or waging a second Holocaust any time soon – trying to equate the preservation of white heritage with support for slavery and genocide is obviously one of the Left’s biggest lies, and the very reason why 39 percent of people in this same survey believe white people are under attack.

So Clinton changes her mind, and now says she believes less than one percent of the American population are white nationalists – did she believe there were even LESS than that during the campaign trail? Either way, she’s either just lying or plain stupid.
