Hurricane Florence: Washington Post declares Trump is 'complicit' for dangerous storm
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/09/12/hurricane-florence-washington-post-declares-trump-is-complicit-for-dangerous-storm.html

snips:
The editorial board of the Washington Post has declared that President Trump is “complicit” for Hurricane Florence because of his views on climate change.
The massive storm has not made landfall yet, but the Post published a column on Wednesday headlined, “Another hurricane is about to batter our coast. Trump is complicit.”
The piece also notes that Trump has given “good advice” when issuing hurricane warnings via his Twitter feed before it launched an attack on the president.

“When it comes to extreme weather, Mr. Trump is complicit. He plays down humans’ role in increasing the risks, and he continues to dismantle efforts to address those risks. It is hard to attribute any single weather event to climate change. But there is no reasonable doubt that humans are priming the Earth’s systems to produce disasters,” the editorial board wrote.
–– ADVERTISEMENT ––




Billionaire Jeff Bezos’ paper then quotes a climate researcher who said that previous hurricanes would not have produced so much rain without “human-induced climate change” and Florence is another indication of global warming.
another snip:
“The media won’t give Trump credit for the economy but they will blame him for a hurricane. You can’t make this stuff up.”
his column is so absurd it should be coming from The Onion not the Washington Post. To the extent that climate change is happening, it is a global phenomenon that has been occurring for decades and decades,” Barron said. “The media won’t give Trump credit for the economy but they will blame him for a hurricane. You can’t make this stuff up.”

Trump certainly doesn't think so.  He's in a frenzy trying to figure out who did it (lie detector tests, etc.).

I knew somehow the "fake news media" would blame Trump for the hurricane.

That's called leveraging his weakness.  Just because Trump can be sent on a goose chase doesn't mean our country should be subjected to such internal undermining.

Enemy of the people.  Plain and simple.

Yep they really know what their stuff Trump is responsible for the hurricane and Obama could control the oceans tides.


Yet they doubt the existence of GOD.

If MSM told me the sky was blue I would double check them
President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”

WHY PEOPLE THINK THE PRESS IS FULL OF LIES, PART 4,327,215. Headline: Nikki Haley’s View of New York Is Priceless. Her Curtains? $52,701.

Scroll down — keep scrolling — and you eventually get to this: “A spokesman for Ms. Haley said plans to buy the curtains were made in 2016, during the Obama administration. Ms. Haley had no say in the purchase, he said.”

There are NO reliable media sources.  If you want the true story, you have to consult several different outlets and piece the "truth" together yourself.

The NY Times issued a correction, although I doubt their target audience that has already been led to believe the false narrative will see it or change their perspective now.

I bet the headline and story were much bigger and prominent than the correction.
Most readers never bother to read the "corrections" buried at the bottom of a page with no headline.

The Times use to be a good newspaper the compost never was
