Political News


It was quite the sad sight to behold during the Tuesday evening newscasts. The liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were so overcome with their visceral hatred for President Trump that they went out their way to decry the Trump administration-brokered Abraham Accords, the Middle East peace deal between Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain.

Driven by the desire to deny Trump a victory of any kind leading up the election, the networks twisted the facts and played word games. Such as CBS White House correspondent Paula Reid, who put on a condescending teenagers’ attitude when she declared: “But it’s more of a business deal than the peace accord. The three countries are not engaged in armed conflict.”

CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell set out to paint the historic peace deal as a failure from the get-go. “But before the ink was dry, there were already signs that Israel still has enemies in the region and they aren’t celebrating,” she boasted at the top of the segment, as if the signers were the ones fighting.

Reid also turned to a member of the Obama administration to condemn the peace deal, something that administration failed to achieve:

REID: Rob Malley was a Middle East adviser in the Obama administration.

ROB MALLEY: It is not bringing peace to the extent that the war or the conflict that exists today between Israelis and Palestinians. They were not at the table. They were not involved. That they feel alienated by and marginalized by this event.

Over on NBC Nightly News, they were so invested in keeping Trump from getting a critical policy win, that they refused to attach “peace” to it. Their chyron only describing it as a “historic deal.”

 

 

“And at the White House, today, Israel and two Arab nations signed a new diplomatic agreement that will normalize relations and bring them closer together. But as Andrea Mitchell reports, a broader Middle East peace is still an elusive goal,” proclaimed NBC anchor Lester holt, setting the tone.

For her part, Democratic Party fan girl Andrea Mitchell was exceptionally bitter about the day’s events. “But today’s agreements open the doors for trade, travel, and tourism. But it is not Middle East peace,” she exclaimed. “Left out, the Palestinians, abandoned by their Arab neighbors, powerless to do anything but protest.

“And the President can portray himself as a peacemaker, he says worthy of a Nobel Prize,” Mitchell scoffed. But it was more than just the President who thought he deserved recognition. In fact, he was nominated for two Nobel Peace Prizes last week in relation to the Abraham Accords.

That was a lie. Both ABC and CBS reported that the Palestinians had launched a barrage of rockets into Israel. This went unmentioned by the networks, but it was more than likely the rockets were fired at civilian targets.

ABC chief global affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz took the media’s temper tantrum against Trump’s accomplishment to a petulant low. “On the White House South Lawn before a packed crowd, many not wearing a mask, history was, indeed, made today,” she whined as she began her report.

President Trump proclaiming this a peace agreement, but the countries were not at war,” she huffed, denying the fact that the leaders of all countries involved called it a peace deal. She too complained about the Palestinians being “left out of the deal.”

Despite Raddatz admitting “there are strong indications” that as many as nine other Arab nations could sign onto the deal (including Saudi Arabia), the liberal media were to corrupted by their hatred to see agree that peace was good.

This ridiculous behavior in the face of historic peace deal in the Middle East was made possible because of lucrative sponsorships from Liberty Mutual on ABC, Fidelity on CBS, and Liberty Mutual again on NBC. Their contact information is linked so you can tell them about the biased news they’re funding. CBS Evening News has also asked people to “text Norah” at this number: (202) 217-1107.

DAVID MUIR: And of course all of this playing out hours after history was made at the White House today. Israel, the U.A.E., and Bahrain together at a signing ceremony celebrating the Abraham Accords. The deal normalizing relations between the countries. The Palestinians calling the deal a betrayal; rockets fired from Gaza. And here’s our chief global affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz tonight.

MARTHA RADDATZ: On the White House South Lawn before a packed crowd, many not wearing a mask, history was, indeed, made today.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN: We’ll sign a treaty of peace, diplomatic relations, and full normalization.

RADDATZ: Israel’s prime minister and the foreign ministers from Bahrain and the U.A.E. joining President Trump to officially normalize diplomatic relations with Israel, the first Arab countries to do so in decades.

PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN NETANYAHU: To all of Israel’s friends in the Middle East, I say: peace onto thee.

RADDATZ: The agreements mean embassies will be opened in each other’s countries. Commercial flights can operate between nations.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Together, these agreements will serve as the foundation for a comprehensive peace across the entire region.

RADDATZ: President Trump proclaiming this a peace agreement, but the countries were not at war. And left out of the deal? The Palestinians, who call the agreement a betrayal.

JARED KUSHNER: At some point, when they decide they want to live better lives, I believe that they’ll engage.

RADDATZ: No sign of that yet. Within minutes of the deal being signed, rockets were launched into Israel from Gaza.

There are strong indications that other Arab nations could enter into a deal with Israel. President Trump saying maybe seven, eight, or nine more, including, David, Saudi Arabia.

MUIR: All right, Martha Raddatz, that would be key. Martha, thank you.

NORAH O’DONNELL: President Trump is calling it “the dawn of a new Middle East.” For the first time in more than a quarter century, Israel has signed a diplomatic accord with Arab neighbors. But before the ink was dry, there were already signs that Israel still has enemies in the region and they aren’t celebrating. Here’s CBS’ Paula Reid.

[Cuts to video]

PAULA REID: President Trump called Israel’s normalization of ties with Bahrain and the U.A.E. a beginning of a new era in the region.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: We’re here this afternoon to change the course of history. After decades of division and conflict, we mark the dawn of a new Middle East.

REID: The administration hopes the agreement signals a realignment in the Middle East, as Arab nations once committed to Palestinian statehood now move to solidify their ties with Israel. Only two other Arab states, Jordan and Egypt, have done so.

President Trump was unable to achieve a peace deal between the Israelis and the Palestinians. He framed today’s accord as an equally historic peace deal, one that he hopes will appeal to evangelical and Jewish voters.

TRUMP: You’re going to have peace without blood in the sand. For years you had blood in the sand. That’s all you had, blood in the sand. You got nothing for it.

REID: But it’s more of a business deal than the peace accord. The three countries are not engaged in armed conflict. The agreement means greater diplomatic and economic ties between them.

Rob Malley was a Middle East adviser in the Obama administration.

ROB MALLEY: It is not bringing peace to the extent that the war or the conflict that exists today between Israelis and Palestinians. They were not at the table. They were not involved. That they feel alienated by and marginalized by this event.

REID: That was on display in Gaza, where protesters condemned the accord. And the Israeli military said the Palestinians had fired two rockets into its air space.

LESTER HOLT: And at the White House today, Israel and two Arab nations signed a new diplomatic agreement that will normalize relations and bring them closer together. But as Andrea Mitchell reports, a broader Middle East peace is still an elusive goal.

[Cuts to video]

ANDREA MITCHELL: With pomp and circumstance, the President heralding the first Arab nations to recognize Israel since 1994: The United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: After decades of division and conflict, we mark the dawn of a new Middle East.

MITCHELL: Both countries have quietly dealt with Israel for years, sharing intelligence against Iran, a common enemy. But today’s agreements open the doors for trade, travel, and tourism. But it is not Middle East peace! Left out, the Palestinians, abandoned by their Arab neighbors, powerless to do anything but protest.

The U.A.E. is likely to get what it wants, coveted F-35 stealth bombers from the U.S. The big winners, two embattled political leaders. Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu, owing President Trump for helping him squeak out two recent election victories. Still under pressure at home, but flying here to return the favor and getting a key to the White House.

TRUMP: It’s a key to our country and our hearts.

PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN NETANYAHU: A key to the hearts of the people of Israel, because of all the great things you have done.

[Cuts back to live]

MITCHELL: And the President can portray himself as a peacemaker, he says worthy of a Nobel prize. 49 days before the election. Lester?

HOLT: Andrea, thanks.
