Wow, what a Monday it’s been so far! Have you seen all “the news” about ABC News?
The Ukraine Whistleblower asshats at MSNBC might call it: “THE DAY THAT WAS, October 14, 2019.”
ABC was caught sharing a FAKE VIDEO of Syria (with the goal of “getting at Trump.”) AND. STILL. THE. LEFT. BLAMES. TRUMP. for the millions upon millions of Americans who are waking up to the reality of fake news.
With every day that goes by, it is becoming more evident that we are living in the Orwellian culture of “1984.” And today, I think it is safe to say that “2019 is the new 1984.”
This ABC NEWS FAKE VIDEO stunt makes me think of two things: “1984” (the book) and Susan Rice (the Benghazi video hoax.)
Just as if it’s a clip from “1984”: here’s the ABC News video that they ran Sunday night, purporting to show a Turkish bombing campaign on a Syrian town. The video was actually night footage from a Kentucky gun range.

And here’s ABC News’ apology published today, ONLY AFTER BEING CAUGHT ON SOCIAL MEDIA. (It may have better served ABC NEWS to not apologize for this. Seriously.)
CORRECTION: We’ve taken down video that aired on “World News Tonight" Sunday and “Good Morning America” this morning that appeared to be from the Syrian border immediately after questions were raised about its accuracy. ABC News regrets the error.

This morning, when I saw one of the first and earliest tweets that questioned the validity of the ABC NEWS video, my thoughts immediately jumped to the real-life “Queen of Fake Videos,” Susan Rice.
How ironic is it that JUST. LAST. WEEK. Rice was on The View spewing crap tons of anti-trump-foreign-policy-drama? Here’s what she had to say (ironically also on ABC…) on October 9th.
Susan Rice on Pres. Trump's decision to withdraw U.S. troops from northern Syria: "The message that that sends to all of our potential allies and partners…when the president wakes up on the wrong side of the bed, we'll throw you under the bus." https://t.co/8vma6b81n9 pic.twitter.com/JmHZm7jAKT

Let me be clear: I’m not in any way connecting Susan Rice, the hosebeast hoaxter that she is, to the fake video that ABC News ran with on Sunday night — I’m merely relishing in the irony of it all.
I’ll Never Forget the Benghazi terrorist attack on 9-11-2012, and I very clearly remember the Susan Rice tour on all Sunday Shows that September. It was then that she preached about that infamous Benghazi video that caused the attack and when she bragged about the phenomenal error-proof foreign policies held by the Obama Administration (insert sarcasm and disgust).
Meanwhile, nearly a decade after Benghazi, it seems very clear that the news media is slowly making themselves irrelevant. Many people are now questioning whether the news they’re watching is real, or if it is a hoax. And the media has no one other than themselves to blame for that, not even Trump.
On that note, check out this tweet from Mike Cernovich — his mention of this movie trailer caught my eye: HoaxedMovie.com.
This is….. unreal. ABC deleted it only after being caught on social media!

Is it me, or does all this seem like an extraordinary lead up to declassification and the IG report? I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for some REAL. HARD. TRUTH.
