On May 19, Secretary of Defense Mattis announced that President Trump’s strategy regarding the barbarian terrorists of ISIS would be radically different from that of his predecessor:
“[President Trump] directed a tactical shift from shoving ISIS out of safe locations in an attrition fight to surrounding the enemy in their strongholds so we can annihilate ISIS.”
That is exactly what has happened. We have gone from Zero’s no victory policy of attrition and spectacular failure to Trump’s policy of victory via annihilation of the enemy – and it is proving to be a spectacular success.
On Sunday (7/02), the New York Times headline was: U.S.-Backed Forces Close to Trapping ISIS Holdouts in Raqqa.
This morning (7/06), the London Daily Mail headline is: ISIS Near Total Defeat in Mosul, Holds Just 600 Square Yards in Old City.
How did this happen in both of ISIS capitals of Mosul in Iraq and Raqqa in Syria? Rowan Scarborough in the Washington Times explains (7/02): Trump’s War of Annihilation Strategy Against Islamic State Frees Military to Quickly Seize Territory.
Instead of Zero micro-managing commanders in the field, requiring them to get permission from White House bureaucrats for their every move, Trump and Mattis just told the commanders to win however they thought best. Voila! Sudden victory. Who knew?
As the President’s personal envoy to the coalition of Kurdish and Arab forces fighting ISIS, Brett McGurk, puts it:
“We no longer have the accommodation policy of chasing ISIS out of one place to have them transplanted into another. Now, in their capital of Raqqa for example, we make sure they die in Raqqa.”
Victory through annihilation of the enemy – either eliminating his physical existence or his will and capacity to fight. When was the last time we fought a war to win it outright? Not since World War II – with the one exception of Ronald Reagan winning the Cold War by engineering the extinction of the Soviet Union.
If there is one group of proto-hominids deserving to be treated as human garbage, it is ISIS. Yet Zero, with his pro-Moslem sympathies, could never even try to defeat them. There couldn’t be a greater contrast between him and Trump.
We have a President who not only wants to defeat an evil enemy of America (and the entire civilized world), not only realizes the only way to defeat such evil is to wipe it off the face of the earth, not only has the courage to do so, but knows how to do it – turn Mad Dog loose on them.
And fast. Zero allowed ISIS to be created and flourish as the most disgustingly barbaric threat to the West in modern times, let them declare a “Caliphate” for the world’s Moslems, who flocked to join them. Today, after Mattis announced Trump’s Strategy of Annihilation on May 19, ISIS is being annihilated in just seven weeks – less than two months.
Now that’s winning.
It is cosmically ironic that the culmination of Trump’s annihilation strategy regarding ISIS – with the fall of their Caliphate’s twin capitals of Mosul and Raqqa – is in the very same week as the culmination of his annihilation strategy regarding CNN.
With the entire “mainstream” media waging relentlessly vicious war upon him and his presidency – as it did against George W. Bush who never fought back – Trump went on the offense. First he attached the meme of “Fake News” to them, then announced his declaration of war upon them on February 17:
Jeff Zucker, CEO of CNN, made the mistake of taking this personally, stepped straight into The Donald’s trap, and went wacko promoting a total Fake News Russia-Trump Collusion Myth… day after day, week after week, 24/7. He never had the brains to realize he was cementing the CNN=Fake News meme of Trump’s into the minds of millions of Americans.
CNN became too good a target for Master Spy Videographer James O’Keefe to resist. Dubbing CNN “American Pravda,” he released three devastating CNN spy videos last week:
Tuesday (6/27): American Pravda Part I – CNN Says Russia Narrative All About Ratings.
This resulted in the New York Post cover story you saw featured in last Friday’s HFR:
Everything was primed for CNN to self-destruct. It took 48 hours. But first, the background.
A friend of mine describes Professional Wrestling as “proletarian theatre.” He scoffs at the Snooty Class looking down on it, supposedly mystified that anyone could get emotionally involved with it being so obviously fake. “Don’t they watch movies?” he asks. “Do they think Bogart is really brokenhearted over Ingrid Bergman leaving him, or that Clint Eastwood really kills people?”
That’s why the biggest organizer of pro wrestling with stars like Andre the Giant, The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Hulk Hogan, and its World Heavyweight Championships, is called World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). Anyone who thinks its real like say, boxing, has the IQ of a plant – and would be regarded as such by avid WWE fans.
WWE’s biggest event is called Wrestlemania, first held at Madison Square Garden in 1985. By the time of Wrestlemania IV in 1988, Donald Trump had gotten to know WWE founder Vince McMahon and offered to host it at his Trump Plaza in Atlantic City. It was the start of a Trump-McMahon friendship that has lasted almost three decades.
Trump sponsored Wrestlemania V, did a skit with Chuck Norris at VII, and one with Jesse Ventura at XX in 2004. In January 2007, WWE held a Fan Appreciation Night where McMahon and Trump pretended to have an argument.
“You don’t really appreciate your fans, Vince, like I do,” said Trump. “Oh, yeah, prove it!” McMahon yelled back – whereupon Trump waved his hand and $1, $5, $10, even $50 dollar bills rained down on the huge audience like confetti.
This was a setup for a grudge match to be called The Battle of the Billionaires. Watch the challenge, watch how they ham it up tweaking each other:
Wrestlemania XXIII took place on April 1, 2007 at Ford Field in Detroit with an attendance of over 80,000 rabid fans. The highlight was the Battle of the Billionaires, with two famous champions as proxies, and whomever’s proxy loses, either Trump or McMahon would get his head shaved bald. Watch and enjoy:
So we come back to last week. In response to the disaster occurring to CNN, someone posted a gag video on the social news web aggregator Reddit superimposing the CNN logo on McMahon’s face from the 2007 WWE23 event. It was silent with no audio. Then someone else synched in the audio of the original and reconfigured it to be loaded on to an iPhone – which ended up on Trump’s iPhone.
He posted it on Sunday (7/02):
Trump knew he had been handed the mother lode on a platter, the straw that would break CNN’s back. Sure enough, it instantly drove everyone at CNN from Zucker on down to the on-screen airheads completely berkerk-o. Absolute Meltdown City. Their prefrontal cortexes rendered inoperable, they went in to total Teenager Amygdala Rage and committed a fatal error.
They went all out to discover the person who created the Reddit video clip using the anonymous moniker of “HanA**holeSolo,” and extorted a confession from him by blackmailing him: How CNN found the Reddit user behind the Trump wrestling GIF
Written by CNN Senior Editor Andrew Kaczynski, it bragged how he was tracked down and pressured into issuing an abject apology. Then Kaczynski wrote CNN’s death sentence:
“CNN is not publishing ‘HanA**holeSolo’s’ name because he is a private citizen who has issued an extensive statement of apology, showed his remorse by saying he has taken down all his offending posts, and because he said he is not going to repeat this ugly behavior on social media again. In addition, he said his statement could serve as an example to others not to do the same.
CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.”
This was yesterday (7/05). The entire internet has since exploded in rage against CNN’s extortion and blackmail. Within hours, #CNNBlackmail was the #1 Trending hashtag on Twitter – until Trump-hating Twitter took it off the Trending list.
There are now hundreds (at least, their numbers are growing exponentially) of spoof video clips of Trump punching out or otherwise obliterating CNN. Here’s one compilation:
There are plenty more on #CNNBlackmail or enter “Trump CNN meme” on YouTube. Senator Ted Cruz points out that CNN can be prosecuted under Georgia’s extortion laws (CNN is HQ’d in Atlanta).
CNN has destroyed itself. And you can trust Trump not to let it off the ropes. He is out to annihilate CNN Fake News just as he is annihilating ISIS.
Simultaneous Annihilation. Hope Chuck Schumer and Robert Mueller are paying attention.
