Whom Do You Trust?



http://www.americanthinker.com
By Mike Razar

Article:


Back in the late fifties and early sixties, Jack Paar ruled late night TV on NBC and his successor, the great Johnny Carson, had a quiz show at the time which went by a few names: “Who Do You Trust?”, “Do You Trust Your Wife?”, and third time the charm, “Whom Do You Trust?”. Johnny Carson became the alpha dog on TV for thirty years after replacing Jack Paar on the Tonight Show. But back then, who knew?

The only point of that nostalgic trip down memory lane for baby boomers is to introduce the really important question: “Whom do you trust?” and by inference, the related question: “Whom do you distrust?”

I trust President Trump. I trust most of his advisors. I trust his family. I trust the instincts of his base. I have not caught President Trump in a willful lie, despite the claims of the media. I do not trust anyone at the NY Times, Washington Post, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN. They are willful, serial liars. I do not trust most climate scientists. I do not trust Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, or Chuck Schumer. I especially distrust Hillary Clinton. I distrust Loretta Lynch, Susan Rice, and Jim Comey. I distrust pretty much every Democrat politician and many Republicans, but I do trust Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Rand Paul. I may not always agree with their specific proposals, but they don’t lie and I generally trust their judgment. Those were easy. Another easy one is John Bolton. I trust him not to lie. But even these trustworthy individuals can be misled with false information from sources they trust.

We live in an era where loyalty to ideology on the left has superseded loyalty to America. Think about the implications of that observation. It does not mean that every Democrat is untrustworthy. But it does mean that everything such people say needs to be scrutinized. It is so bad that, if I were on a jury, I would consider all testimony by known Democrats or liberals, and most RINOs against the defendant, to create instant reasonable doubt.

Naturally, those on the left distrust the people I trust and trust the ones I distrust. This is the great divide in America today.

Two of the top intelligence figures in the Obama administration, namely John Brennan (CIA Director) and James Clapper (Director of National Intelligence) are loyal Democrats. Clapper has already perjured himself in testimony before a Congressional committee. These men are not trustworthy. Anything they say based on their opinions derived from classified information, not available to the rest of us, is suspect.

Yes, those were easy. But in many cases, it is hard to know whom to trust nowadays on any question. Sometimes it is even hard to make comparisons. But I will try. This is largely based on impressions I have developed over the years. Trust can be quite subjective.

Here is the sad, nasty truth as I see it. I do not trust the leaders of the U.S. intelligence community to tell the truth to the American people or to the President. I do not trust senior career officials at the Justice Department or the FBI or federal prosecutors to be objective and impartial. I do not trust half of the federal judiciary to uphold the Constitution.

Had to stop right there. There are well documented instances of him lying, so clearly, this person chooses to be willfully ignorant or knows he's lying himself.

Ah, ol'Abe, not one of my favorite Presidents. He did more damage to the Constitution than anyone until Woodrow Wilson. Other than that how did you enjoy the play Mrs. Lincoln.

John Wilkes Booth was a patriot.

:bs:

He's not the serial liar that the lamestream media says.

Many refuse to believe the facts that he says/states from the alternative media and claim they are lies.

True up to a point

John Wilkes Booth was no patriot.

He was a British operative who killed Lincoln so his illegal unconstitutional deal that he made that turned this country from a republic into a corporation into a permanent deal.

Lincoln had only meant for it to be temporary to pay down the settler's debt owed to the British Rothschild banks.

The same debt that he forced upon the south with the Morril tariff which was the real true reason for the Civil War.

I didn't say he was. But he has lied on many occasions and it's documented. The fact that the author couldn't be truthful from the start gave me a good reason not to read further.

Many do indeed - I'm not among them.

Actually, I felt the same way...until I started finding his speeches on YouTube and realizing how often he'd been misquoted, taken out of context, and the like. President Trump, like any great negotiator, starts from a position way above what he wants and "settles" for what he wanted in the first place.
I know you are not fond of Trump but remember....President Hilary Clinton....

A great movie line from one of my favorite characters! :P

imho, they all lie. We all lie. It's part of the human condition. It's how bad (white lie vs...) and about what that makes the difference.

I was referring much more to his extensive history prior to winning the election.

My decision not to read the author's article was based on the author's inability to be honest. It had nothing to do with Trump's abilities.

I've mentioned repeatedly on this site that I am very happy with the actions Trump has taken since becoming President. I was against him in the primaries, but once he secured the nomination, the choice between him or Hillary was a no-brainer.
