Outrage Erupts After NYT Uses Slain Marine’s Photo For “Unsubstantiated” Propaganda

Share

After the Director of National Intelligence and CIA chief Gina Haspel backed the White House’s claim that President Trump was never briefed on unvetted, raw intelligence over an alleged Russian bounty plot against US soldiers, outrage erupted after the ‘paper of record’ shamelessly used a photo of a slain marine in a follow-up report to their heavily-disputed story.

Reactions to a heavily-ratio‘d tweet by author Jennifer Steinhauer have ranged from shock to disgust, with few if any supporting the decision to use a photo of Cpl. Robert Hendricks, who was killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan in April, 2019.

As we noted earlier Tuesday, several pundits took the DNI and CIA statements as a clear denial that there was anything significant or worthy of briefing the president on regarding alleged “Russian bounties” — meaning it was likely deemed “chatter” or unsubstantiated rumor picked up either by US or British intelligence  and subsequently leaked to the press to revive the pretty much dead Russiagate narrative of some level of “Trump-Putin collusion”.  

In short, when your ‘unsubstantiated chatter’ hit-piece loses steam, prop it up with a slain Marine.

    The DNC is a criminal organization led by an unelected, dual-citizen, billionaire! The Bilderberg’s told the media-Moguls to lead the herd towards their agenda!
    I don’t know about anyone else, but this entire COVID-19 and shutting down President Trumps booming economy stinks to the heavens! You rotten, lousy, anti-America, Chicago Anarchists and ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT aspirers can all kiss my A—!
    WE THE PEOPLE deserve better, and if we don’t act fast to plan on uniting to defend ourselves, we are going to regret it!

    As I keep saying the news media and the liberal democrats do not care about the citizens of our nation and even less for any of them who wear a uniform. They are more than willing to spread lies and half truths placing these brave men and women in danger and walk on their dead bodies to get at our President. This is disgusting and they need held accountable. I hope that the family of Cpl. Robert Hendricks sues the pants off of them.

    Nancy Pelosi would get on her knees, and suck Obama’s cock in broad daylight, if she was told to by Soros! All you African Americans out there, better understand that the DNC has manipulated you since Lyndon Johnson said “ I’ll have those ni__ers voting Democrat for the next 200 years!”

    If President Trump is not re-elected, the DNC will have everyone at home lockdown, and the gun confiscation will begin, and the ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT will also begin! One Bank, One Currency, One Religion, One Large Pile Of Dead Bodies!

    This is just another way to show disrespect for the Armed Services and the USA. These Democrats are solely responsible for these Service personal getting Killed. It is no Doubt that the Democrats are Responsible for any Bounty’s paid to kill them, if that is true. I would like to see all of the USA,s Armed Service Members, return to this country and help Eliminate all of the Democrats and socialist. We will have a Civil War, the Republicans against the Yellow Cowards. after that we will have Equality to All

    These Dems.. really just Communists… working to destroy this country , our laws, our rights… And unfortunately we have allowed our education system to toally dumb down our people. Boo Hoo if it offends them it must be gone. Bill Ayers a Vietnam era , rioter, bomber, murderer… Said he wished he had found education as a way to brain wash mush heads… It was a lot easier and boy does it bring in the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. Ayers became an “educator” along with his radical wife at a university. He also was friends with Me$$elles”s family. And he rewrote Obumo’s books so you could actually read them.

    The correct name is Democommies for a lying species of nincompoops striving to overthrow America. Ask yourself how many of these Democommies are on China’s payroll? Why else would Pelosi and Schumer work so hard to disarm citizens in order to prepare for the overthrow of the Government? This Taliban fiasco is the Soup du Jour for an anti’Trump attack. Notice how each week a new anti’Trump”scandal” is being bruited about by the two major scandal rags, The New York Times and The Washington Post? Wake up citizens and arm yourselves for the coming revolution.

    Please read the short subsections of the law in the above link. It is eye-opening!

    Based on this law of the US government, all these anti-American so-called religious leaders, teachers, fomentors of anti-police and bringers of violence, destruction and mayhem towards law abiding American citizens need to be arrested and tried under all the sections of the law that fit their crimes. Report them and cite reference to TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES law to the authorities. The best way to save America. Share this with everyone.

    The Taliban are terrorists, they dont need any bounty to kill all american, not just soldiers. As an Army retiree, I know that I was a target for our enemies. And our enemies will do it for their glory and honor.
