Once again, President Trump has been proved correct about something he said. President Trump told Americans repeatedly that MSNBC, CNN, and other fake news media was riding his coattails and any success they had was directly related to their insistence on covering every lie, fake scandal, and attack on Donald J. Trump. Now, with every single leftist “news” source flailing without him, President Trump has the last laugh.

The Hill reports that MSNBC, CNN, and more are hemorrhaging viewers. Though Fox News has also declined some, its losses are much lower than left-leaning “news”:

During President Biden’s first 100 days in office, weekly full-day cable ratings for CNN and MSNBC have been trending down, according to statistics from ratings company Nielsen.

On average, 1.3 million household viewers were watching MSNBC in the last week of January, shortly after Biden took office. For the week ending April 25, that number was 868,000. At CNN, those figures went from 1.2 million to 749,000.

Even perennial ratings leader Fox News is seeing a decline, though a much smaller one compared to its cable competitors, dipping to just 1.2 million from 1.3 million in late January.

Prime-time cable viewership is also down across the board. In the same time comparisons as the full-day ratings, CNN has lost 792,000 viewers, while MSNBC is down 788,000 and Fox is short 348,000.

Network evening news isn’t faring any better. Ratings leader “World News Tonight” at ABC had 1.8 million fewer viewers in the seven days ending April 25 compared to the last week of January.

“I’m sort of hearing, seeing the same thing regarding news ratings, digital subscriptions, etc. sinceTrump left office,” says Steve Passwaiter, a vice president and general manager of the campaign media analysis group at media analytics company Kantar.

President Trump predicted this. “The Fake News Media is going CRAZY! They are totally unhinged and in many ways, after witnessing first hand the damage they do to so many innocent and decent people, I enjoy watching. In 7 years, when I am no longer in office, their ratings will dry up and they will be gone!” he said in 2018.

Now, his prediction is coming true. Without him, leftist fake news media is dying — and he has the pleasure of watching it happen.

President Trump mocked Twitter after the platform’s earnings report revealed that while Trump is fine without Twitter, Twitter is not fine without Trump. The stock plunged as investors learned that the company hasn’t been doing well since it banned the President following the January 6 Capitol incident.

Twitter’s stock plunged more than 15 percent on Friday — a major indicator that things are not well with the social media giant and a sign that investors are not happy with the company’s decisions.

“Twitter stock plunged as results are no longer cutting it for investors. Shares are off 15% today. Bad forecasts are hurting the outlook but more importantly, in my opinion, it has become totally BORING as people flock to leave the site,” Trump said in a statement regarding the plunge in Twitter stock.

The drop in Twitter stock price wiped out nearly all of the gains the company has made this year.

Back in January, Twitter banned the President for allegedly inciting a riot — but all he really did was urge people to calm down. So powerful, though, was the media frenzy that nearly every social network on the planet had banned the President within weeks of the Capitol “riot.” Conservatives in general were also banned at an alarming rate if they spoke in support of the President or in opposition to BLM/Antifa and Joe Biden.

Twitter is in danger of losing a lot of money from really bad decisions. And with Parler opened back up following its forced shutdown when Amazon yanked web hosting because the site supports Trump, conservatives have an amazing option for social media that allows them to continue to stay away from Twitter.

Do rioters bring soup cans to “protests” to use as weapons against police? President Trump says yes. The mainstream media says no. The rioters? That’s a huge, resounding “yes!”

President Trump was weirdly called a racist and attacked by everyone on the Left when he said that protesters often bring soup, bricks, and other objects to use as weapons.

“And they throw the cans of soup,” Trump said in a 2020 speech. “That’s better than a brick because you can’t throw a brick; it’s too heavy. But a can of soup, you can really put some power into that, right? And then when they get caught, they say, ‘No, this is soup for my family.’ And you have people coming over with bags of soup — big bags of soup. And they lay it on the ground, and the anarchists take it and they start throwing it at our cops, at our police.”

A “protester” appeared on CNN armed with — that’s right — a can of soup. He clearly intended to mock President Trump, telling the interviewer the soup was “for his family” but would not commit to not using the weapon against police.

“I’ve been here all four nights, and I’m just standing here today with soup for my family and we’re just watching all this unfold,” the rioter, identified as “Tiger,” said as he held up the weapon and winked. “It’s very unfortunate.”

Asked if the soup would be used against police, “Tiger” simply replied, “Like I said, it’s for my family.”

Riots have broken out nationwide as the trial of Derek Chauvin, the officer who is being crucified by the media for a drug addict’s death when he was forced to restrain the man, rages on. “Protesters” do indeed use weapons — like that can of soup — against police. President Trump knows this. We all know this (we’re not blind). But the Left pretends it doesn’t happen.

America is facing dark times under Joe Biden’s presidency. Illegals are flooding the border after Joe Biden invited them to come to America. Thousands are dying each day ov COVID-19 under his watch despite his promises to make it magically go away. America needs hope — but after the extremely problematic 2020 election, it sometimes feels like all hope is lost. Fortunately, President Trump — just like he did in 2016 and would have in 2020 — heard the call of millions of Americans and has decided to step up where he can. The President told his daughter Lara in an interview that he’s thinking about holding a rally soon.

 “We’re thinking about doing a rally relatively soon just to let everybody know that there’s hope in the future,” the President says. “I love doing them.”

In the latest attack on the President, Facebook removed the video. The social media platform says that any content “in the voice of Donald Trump” (including interviews, apparently) will be removed. This is the latest escalation since Facebook banned the President in January following the incident at the Capitol on January 6. Facebook warned a group of Trump officials that all content on both Facebook and Instagram “in the voice of President Trump is not currently allowed on our platforms (including new posts with President Trump speaking).” The company says that subsequent postings  “will be removed if posted, resulting in additional limitations on accounts” that posted it. Lara Trump received a similar warning:

“We are reaching out to let you know that we removed content from Lara Trump’s Facebook Page that featured President Trump speaking,” the message says. “In line with the block we placed on Donald Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts, further content posted in the voice of Donald Trump will be removed and result in additional limitations on the accounts.”

Despite social media’s attempts to censor him, President Trump continues to fight for and be there for the American people.

On Tuesday, a deranged individual opened fire at King Sooper’s grocery store. Ahmad Al-Issa murdered 10 people, including a 51-year-old police officer during the attack. According to reports, the shooter was sympathetic to terrorist organization ISIS and hated President Donald Trump.

While liberals and the media enjoy blaming shootings on President Trump and conservatives, it is impossible this time, as Al-Issa’s Facebook page reveals that he hates President Trump, whom he refers to as a “d*ck” who “inherited a growing economy” and a low unemployment rate yet “won because of racism.”

Since the shooter is a Middle-Eastern man who hates President Trump, naturally Barack Obama spoke out against terrorism committed by those who support ISIS — right? Wrong. He blamed white supremacy, misogyny, and other ridiculous things.

“It is long past time for those with the power to fight this epidemic of gun violence to do so,” Obama said. “It will take time to root out the disaffection, racism and misogyny that fuels so many of these senseless acts of violence.”

“It’s time for leaders everywhere to listen to the American people when they say enough is enough – because this is a normal we can no longer afford,” Obama says — something that sounds very much like President Trump pointing out that we should listen to Americans when they speak up. President Trump, of course, was “canceled” by social media companies because he said similar things in the aftermath of the January 6 Capitol incident.

Al-Issa has been charged with 10 counts of murder, but liberals don’t care about him. They don’t care about the people who died. They aren’t interested in solving the mental health issues behind every single mass murder. They just want to use his actions to push gun control.

Americans have something to look forward to in a few months, according to President Trump’s advisor Jason Miller. In an appearance on Fox News program Media Buzz, Miller dropped some major Trump news that could change the landscape of social media as we know it.

In the aftermath of the January 6 protests, President Trump was blamed for the protesters’ decision to enter the Capitol. Though those inside remained peaceful, Capitol Police murdered one unarmed woman because, as the officer who shot her in cold blood claimed, they thought she might have explosives in her bag. She was carrying a scarf and sweater. It was a day of colossal errors on the part of law enforcement, but President Trump did his best to urge calm. Nevertheless, President Trump received the blame for what liberals and the fake news media called an insurrection. He was removed from every social media platform from Twitter to Facebook to even Snapchat. Conservative social media network Parler’s web hosting was shut down just to ensure that President Trump had no means to communicate with Americans easily. But now? The President has big plans to return in style.

“I do think that we’re going to see President Trump returning to social media in probably about two or three months here with his own platform,” Miller told host Howard Kurtz. ” And this is something that I think will be the hottest ticket in social media. It’s going to completely redefine the game, and everybody is going to be waiting and watching to see what exactly President Trump does, but it will be his own platform.”

Miller refuses to give more details, but he seems to be hinting that President Trump plans to start or be heavily involved in a new social media platform.

“I can’t go much further than what I was able to just share, but I can say that it will be big once he starts. There have been a lot of high-powered meetings he’s been having at Mar-a-Lago with some teams of folks who’ve been coming in,” he says. “And I gotta tell you there have been, it’s just not one company that’s approached the President, there have been numerous companies.”

Miller says President Trump has so many options, it’s hard to decide what he wants to do. “I think the President does know what direction that he wants to head here,” he says. “And this new platform is going to be big and everyone wants him. He’s gonna bring millions and millions, tens of millions of people to this new platform.”

What can we expect President Trump to do? We can expect to learn soon, as he doesn’t often sit on information that would be of benefit to the American people. Whatever it is, it’s sure to be exciting.

Social media’s war on conservatism continues. Recently, a frightening trend has developed — one that has become a threat to free speech. After the January 6 incident at the Capitol — an “insurrection” according to liberals that was directly led by Donald J. Trump himself — social media companies began to trend in an interesting direction.

First, they came for the President, shutting down Trump’s social media accounts on nearly every platform imaginable. Then they came for rogue social media companies like Parler, which refused to shut down an account created for President Trump. Parler went dark for over a month when Amazon decided to kill its hosting. We couldn’t have a free exchange of information, could we? That’d be nuts. Then they came for you. Conservatives have found themselves banned across social media platforms for mentioning anything that doesn’t fit with the Democrat narrative. And now, anything President Trump says is apparently cause for a ban from YouTube.

A recording of President Trump’s CPAC speech published on YouTube by Right Side Broadcasting Network had amassed nearly 4 million views when YouTube decided to remove the speech, which was presented uncut and completely in context. This wasn’t fake news. It was news — the former President’s first major speech since the transition of power. But YouTube doesn’t believe that Americans deserve to hear President Trump’s words outside of short, edited, out-of-context clips.

Right Side is unable to post new videos for two weeks. This, of course, is devastating because they have a good history of providing access to important events. The organization was told the video would be allowed to remain up — IF they were willing to say Trump is lying:

 “Even if we believed that, we wouldn’t sell out like that and say it just to keep a video up. We try to follow the rules,” RSBN says. “Don’t air certain things that we normally would—but we won’t censor President Trump or push back against things he says that, quite frankly, we agree with.”

But YouTube didn’t stop there. The company removed all copies of the speech except the aforementioned out-of-context clips published by mainstream “news” organizations. Fox, RT, Fox Business, ABC News, the Independent, and more all lost their full uploads of the speech.

In total, more than 31 million views worth of the speech were deleted — though RSBN seems to have been singled out for an actual suspension.

“This sort of manipulation and interference only shows how much weight these monopolies put on the scale of freedom. It’s never going to end until we all band together to stop it,” Donald Trump Jr. tweeted following these shenanigans. “And if you notice the censorship seems to only really go one way.”

President Trump has spoken out about his role, or lack thereof, in the January 6 protest in which numerous Democrats were arrested alongside a lot of nonvoters and some Republicans after what appear to be outside agitators convinced the crowd to enter the Capitol. It was clear that law enforcement was woefully unprepared, and multiple people lost their lives — including an unarmed peaceful protester named Ashli Babbitt. Democrats say that Trump is at fault, but the President revealed in a Fox News appearance what really happened.

While the media claimed Trump was watching the protest on TV and celebrated it, he says that is galaxies away from the truth. Trump told host Steve Hilton:

“Well, that’s incorrect reporting. First of all I wasn’t watching TV. I turned it on later on when I heard about it and did a lot of moves. You know, we said to the Department of Defense, the top person, days before we had the rally, cuz that rally was massive…(Trump comments on large rally crowd)…and I said that I think you should have ten thousand, I think I gave the number, I definitely gave the number of ten thousand National Guardsmen, I think you have ten thousand of the National Guard ready. They took that number, from what I understand they gave it to the people at the Capitol which is controlled by Pelosi and I heard they rejected it because they didn’t think it looked good. So, you know, that was a big mistake.”

 “I hate to see it, I think it’s terrible, I hate to see it” Trump says of the Capitol incident, but reminds us that Democrats have a “double standard” in their reaction to this versus Antifa and BLM tearing up cities every time they get angry. Watch the interview below:

A straw poll conducted at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Sunday revealed that if President Trump chooses to run in 2024, he will likely be the nominee.

Support for the President was impressive at CPAC, with 97 percent of those present saying they approve of President Trump. A whopping 87% say they approve of the job he did as President, and 68% say Trump should run for President again. According to Fox News, if the 2024 GOP primary was held today, President Trump would be chosen to challenge Biden for the Oval Office:

Former President Donald Trump, in results announced Sunday, won the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) straw poll with 55% of attendees saying they’d vote for him if the 2024 GOP primary were today.

Trump got 55% of the vote in the poll in which he was included, with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in second place at 21%. 

A poll that didn’t include President Trump placed DeSantis in the lead with 43% of the vote, but it is clear that people are overwhelmingly behind the President. This poll has South Dakota Governor Kristy Noem in second with 11% and Donald Trump Jr. in third with 8%.

Republicans who oppose Trump did very poorly. Mitt Romney got .3% of the votes, while Maryland Governor Larry Hogan earned .1%.

“Look, you’re not going to get the Republican nomination being a never-Trumper,’ says American Conservative Union President Matt Schlapp. “You’re not going to get the Republican nomination if you’re not a strong conservative. So all of that kind of courting, it’s appropriate that it starts at CPAC.”

Though some in the Republican Party oppose President Trump, CPAC has made it clear that, as Schlapp says, we won’t get anywhere if we oppose Donald J. Trump.

President Trump announced some major plans for 2022. No, he’s not running for Senate. But he does plan to make the Senate and the House great again. In a Thursday meeting at the Mar-A-Lago, President Trump held a meeting with some of his closest allies and advisors — a meeting where he laid out his plans for the midterm elections.

The meeting included many recognizable names: former Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien, former deputy campaign manager Justin Clark, former campaign manager Brad Parscale, former White House Social Media Director Dan Scavino, and attorney Alex Cannon. Though it might seem like the former President is planning a run for Congress based on that list of names, Trump has other plans — a new super PAC intended to elect only the best. Politico reports:

Lewandowski, himself a former campaign manager for Trump in 2016, did not respond to requests for comment. In a statement, Trump spokesman Jason Miller said the former president will announce more details about his political operation “in the coming weeks.

“MAGA supporters and candidates supporting President Trump’s America First agenda are going to be impressed with the political operation being built out here,” Miller said. “We expect formal announcements of the full team in the coming weeks, which will include some very talented operatives not yet named.”

President Trump may not be in office anymore and it is unclear if he plans to run again in 2024, but it’s clear that he plans to remain a major player in the Republican Party. And given his popularity among conservatives, the President can play a major role in mobilizing patriots for the important midterm elections at a time when taking back Congress is imperative.

President Trump also says he hopes to use the opportunity to “engage” in the 2022 election and “exact revenge” on Republicans like Mitch McConnell, who are not loyal to him, and men like Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, for not “overturning the election.”

It’s unclear what Trump plans specifically, but he is expected to share more at his appearance at CPAC on Sunday.
