The NY Times hoped to create a firestorm of fear and hate with a deceitful article demonizing both Donald Trump and Steve Bannon.
The New York Times published an article on Friday titled, Trump’s Blistering Speech at CPAC Follows Bannon’s Blueprint. The only thing blistering was the massive lie perpetrated by the NY Times. Trump’s speech would have been blistering if it actually said what the NY Times claimed it said.
The NY Times claimed he said:
His speech also included a promise to throw undocumented immigrants “the hell out of the country” and a recitation of his law-and-order campaign promises. It represented a not-entirely friendly takeover of CPAC, an establishment Republican group whose leadership once viewed the party’s surprise standard-bearer as a noisy interloper.
They want all people here illegally to think he said he wants all illegal aliens “the hell out of the country”
That of course is not what he said.
Left-wing Vox posted a transcript. What he actually said was “gang members, drug dealers, and criminal aliens” were getting the “hell out of the country”:
By stopping the flow of illegal immigration, we will save countless tax dollars. That’s so important because the dollars that we’re losing are beyond anything that you can imagine. And the tax dollars that can be used to rebuild struggling American communities, including our inner cities. We are also going to save countless American lives. As we speak today, immigration officers are finding the gang members, the drug dealers, and the criminal aliens and throwing them the hell out of our country. And we will not let them back in. They’re not coming back in, folks. They do, they’re going to have bigger problems than they ever dreamed of.
After that lie, they injected a comment Trump allegedly made at another time. Their intention was to give the false impression that he wanted the country back from the “undocumented”:
“If you think they’re going to give you your country back without a fight, you are sadly mistaken,” he said during an appearance with Reince Priebus, the White House chief of staff. “Every day, it is going to be a fight.”
He also said later in the speech that he was going to keep radical Islamic terrorists out.
Take a look at what’s happening to our world, folks. And we have to be smart. We have to be smart. We can’t let it happen to us. So let me state this as clearly as I can: We are going to keep radical Islamic terrorists the hell out of our country.

They also continued the lie that Trump’s campaign people are tied to the Russian President though it has been fully debunked.
The attacks on the news media come at a time when the press has been reporting on the Trump campaign’s apparent connections to Russia, the botched rollout of Mr. Trump’s executive order on immigration and the forced resignation of Michael T. Flynn, the national security adviser, after less than a month on the job.
There are NO apparent connections.
We took screenshots of the particular passages in case they “fix” it.
The first passage about undocumented immigrants that he never said.
This is what he actually said.
Speaking of liars, Chuck Schumer’s lying too.
