Epic Media Fail: Support for Trump's Travel Ban Hits a Whopping 60%

If you think about it, our corrupt media has been propagandizing against President Trump's proposed travel ban going back a full year, to when then-candidate Trump first suggested a ban on all Muslims. If you recall, the MSM (especially CNN) went ballistic. Believing this proposal would finally be the undoing of Trump, they fired every "ist" and "phobic" in the arsenal. "THIS is the killshot!" they believed.

Even those of us who supported Trump at the time believe a ban on all Muslims went too far. But as is their wont, in trying to take Trump down forever, the media then went too far itself. For example, Maggie Haberman (remember her?) used the pages of the leftwing New York Times to outright lie about Trump creating some Nazi-style list of American Muslims, something he never even proposed.

As the backlash against the media's overreach began, Trump modified his proposal to "extreme vetting" of refugees. Then, as president, Trump further modified his proposal to a temporary travel ban that affects only the handful of countries the Obama administration designated as terrorist hotbeds, as countries where the crumbling government infrastructure makes it near-impossible to properly vet refugees.

Trump's policy is now absurdly reasonable. ISIS has promised to seed refugees with its terrorist fighters, and it seems as though a week does not go by where we do not see the terrible and deadly consequences of Europe's leftwing immigration policies. All Trump wants to do now is pause this flow of people from these few countries until better vetting policies and procedures can be put into place.

This is more than reasonable; keeping Americans safe is Trump's primary Constitutional responsibility.

Nonetheless, because all the fake news media does is lie, they never let go of The Muslim Ban. Despite Trump's modification of his proposal into something necessary, as far as the media was concerned, Trump was still enacting a racist, Islamophobic, xenophobic, and un-American ban on all Muslims. This, despite the fact that Trump's temporary ban only affects 6 Muslim counties and not the dozens of others.

My point here is that for going on a year now, there has been a coordinated media-jihad against Trump's temporary ban. Dozens of powerful news outlets backed by billions of corporate dollars have thrown every lie, every piece of fake news, every trick in the playbook to propagandize against this ban ... and all of that malicious effort has failed MISERABLY.

Now that Trump's proposal has overcome a number of robed fascists by triumphing in the Supreme Court by a unanimous decision, the ban is not only now in effect, it is highly popular with voters.

According to a Politico poll, a full 60% of American voters back the ban:

Asked whether they support or oppose the State Department’s “new guidelines which say visa applicants from six predominately Muslim countries must prove a close family relationship with a U.S. resident in order to enter the country,” 60 percent of voters say they support the guidelines, and only 28 percent oppose them.

Sixty percent!

A full 56% of Independent voters back the ban, only 30% oppose.

Even 41% of Democrats back Trump, with only 46% against.

This is a stunning failure for the American media. That extraordinary 60% number not only proves that no one believes the media anymore, that the media has lost all of its moral authority, it also proves that New Media, combined with the power of the President's social media strength, is able to go around the media's cacophony of lies to get the actual truth to the American people...

Who are nowhere near as divided as the fake news media would like us to believe.
