Attorney General Jeff “beleaguered” Sessions, now secure in his job, has moved to the real problem festering like an infected wart on Donald Trump’s ugly presidency. “This nation must end the culture of leaks,” Sessions said.
The AG announced that the FBI had created a new counterintelligence unit to deal with a “staggering number of leaks.” The DOJ is pursuing three times as many leak investigations as the Obama administration, the announcement said, according to the New York Times.
“I strongly agree with the president and condemn in the strongest terms the staggering number of leaks,” he said. The announcement by Mr. Sessions comes 10 days after President Trump publicly accused him of being “very” weak on pursuing these investigations in a post on Twitter.
A lightheaded sense of irony swept over me as I read about how Trump “has been bedeviled by leaks” from one of the chief newspapers specializing in obtaining and printing those leaks. It’s really astounding that the NYT can, with a straight face, report this.
Before the investigation gets too far, the NYT and its consigliere in leaking, the Washington Post, will surely empty their grab bag of (not necessarily illicit, as NYT was careful to note) carefully curated dirt and mud on every embarrassing, compromising, and damaging word spoken at the
Dump White House.
The NYT is worried they might end up on the other side of the leaky pipe, warning employees of possible infiltrators.
In the end, the press will take the very low road, claiming that leaks are ethical for me, but not for thee. Watch them lawyer up about First Amendment protections, the sacrosanct immunity for safeguarding source identities, and all that “we’re the press!” stuff. Yes, it’s important to have a free press.
But it’s also important to rid the government of a true Fifth Column that is working to dismantle and damage the executive branch, and its head, the President of the United States. It doesn’t matter whether you love or hate Donald Trump the man. The office is not to be made into a sieve of leaks and rumors.
Leaking–especially classified–information damages more than just Trump. It damages America.
It’s good to hear Sessions finally crack down on the leakers.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
