It appears that the media is unleashing a full out barrage against Donald Trump. Anything that he does or anything that comes out of his mouth is immediately met with criticism and outrage. It is becoming increasingly clear that the media’s treatment of Trump is anything but objective, especially when juxtaposed with their treatment of Hillary Clinton. If one disagrees with my characterization then maybe they should watch Wolf Blitzer getting his groove on to celebrate Hillary’s victory as the Democratic Presidential nomination, or listen to Chris Cuomo admit “we [CNN] could not help her any more than we have…she’s got just a free ride so far with the media,” or read Justin Raimondo’s op-ed piece in the LA Times entitled “To fight Trump, journalists have dispensed with objectivity.1

Another example of the media’s bias and duplicity was their handling of the WikiLeaks DNC emails, which basically confirmed that the DNC rigged the Democratic nomination process so that Hillary would win over Bernie Sanders. Since the contents of the emails could not be easily refuted, they were largely ignored by the media, who instead focused their narrative on unsubstantiatedly accusing Putin of hacking and releasing the emails to WikiLeaks. Thus the fictitious messenger, the evil Putin, was to blame for the email leaks, regardless of the facts that the contents of those emails incriminated the DNC and Hillary in rigging the end results of the Democratic primaries. However, the media didn’t stop here, they then linked Trump to Putin, effectively insinuating that the two are in cahoots, or at the very least Trump is a useful idiot of Putin. Whereas it is Hillary and the DNC that are engaged in improper behavior, we are led to believe that Trump and Putin are the bad guys in all of this.

With Trump’s recent comments that Obama is the founder and Hillary the co-founder of ISIL2 the media is once again on the warpath. Regardless of what one thinks of Trump’s claim–I happen to largely agree with him, but that is a topic for a future post–it is interesting to note that the leader of Hezbollah Hassan Nasrallah concurs with Trump. During an August 13 address on Mayadeen TV Nasrallah said (emphasis mine):3

“(He [Trump] said that ISIS) “was founded by Obama and Clinton.” This is no trivial matter. This is a presidential candidate, speaking on behalf of the US Republican party. He has his own evidence and documents, but there is no need to present any evidence, because they themselves admit this. You can see this on the Internet. So they are the ones who created ISIS. The Americans brought them, gathered them, financed them, and armed them. Of course, they did not reach into their own pockets, but the Arab coffers. The Americans opened the borders for them, facilitated matters for them, trained them, and fought through them. But now they have reached the point that in some areas, this has run its course.”

It appears Nasrallah’s opinions are not unique in the Shiite world, as the Supreme leader of Iran Ali Khamenei has also expressed a similar sentiment in an August 1 speech (emphasis mine):4

“In the present time, they [US] claim that they have formed a coalition against takfiri groups [i.e. ISIL]. Of course, even right now, they are not doing anything against them. According to the reports that we have received, they even help them in some places. However, the creation of these groups goes back to America. Some American officials have acknowledged this. They have acknowledged that they have helped create DAESH [ISIL] in order to create discord inside the Islamic Ummah and in order to promote Umayyad and Marwani Islam.”

With the comments of Nasrallah and Khamenei in mind, it is of note that Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill is now tying Trump and Putin to the creation of ISIL. She argued, “It was also important to realize that Assad, by what he did in his country, allowed ISIS to move into … Syria and get strongholds and recruit. That was the work and support of Putin, who is Trump’s best buddy. So you can say Trump and his friend Putin are the founder of ISIS, which probably would be more accurate than calling out the commander in chief in that way.5 Based on such logic one wonders how long before the media and Democratic party accuses Trump, Nasrallah, Khamenei, Putin and even in an indirect way ISIL as being in cahoots. All I can say is that I hope people will not fall for this potential nonsense.
