Trump's New Glasnost, Bypassing the Media and Taking The Information Directly To The People

From the Daily Times:
... while journalism must adhere to basic rules of asking *who *what *when *where *how and *why, there is another question which requires consideration. Who benefits? Who benefits from any chain of events, a level of misfortune, infamy or praise? When penning our thoughts... who benefits? 
Who benefits when a Presidential Twitter feed presents as the concierge of Glasnost? As virtual invitees into truncated versions of White House meetings we are given the raw material for news. It is offered to us shortly before or after it makes it into the spin cycle of mainstream media. We imagine ourselves the Jerusalem Bureau Chief for the New York Times. We are practically Thomas Friedman! These are heady days! At least that is the way it is affecting this journalist. 
But who benefits? Is it just me? Or is it the American people? If not the American people... whom? 
Our President is running an effective program of hand torch populism. We are being admitted to the White House. Selective views of important national meetings are up for grabs. Light in hand, the President is giving us a peek of his administration and how it works. We are offered small-batch news. News with a target in mind. And the target is both the logic and sentimentality of the American people. 
Social media platforms are working to give Donald J. Trump a competitive edge. This business model is a boomerang. The president wings the news right past the noses of dishonest media and then reclaims the product at home base. 
The giants of broadcast and print media have shown such vitriolic hatred for our political outsider president that it has become increasingly necessary to take the message directly to the electorate.

Trump's only chance (To stay alive? To avoid impeachment?) is to go directly to the people.



And bulletins from WhiteHouse.gov

Facebook, twitter, bulletins and massive rallies like he has planned for this weekend.
State Dept. carries out layoffs under Rex Tillerson
"Much of seventh-floor staff, ... were told today that their services were no longer needed."
Some officials fear the cuts, targeting the deputy and counselor offices could be a politically-minded purge.

I hope this is as YUGE as it sounds.

The entrenched Academic Socialist Deep State beaurucrats are being cut out. These are the 7th floor "Untouchables" at State!

"There was a powerful group of very high-ranking STATE officials that some referred to as 'The 7th Floor Group' or 'The Shadow Government.' This group met every Wednesday afternoon to discuss the FOIA process, Congressional records, and everything CLINTON-related to FOIA/Congressional inquiries," the FBI's interview summary said. From CNBC: http://www.cnbc.com/2016/10/17/fbi-releases-100-new-pages-on-clinton-email-probe.html

The Soros Billionaires have spent a LOT of money getting those people in place, and are not going to be happy about this!!

ABCNews: Denver man arrested in L.A. had knives and explosives A Denver man of Pakistani descent who was arrested in West Los Angeles today possessed weapons and explosive devices, law enforcement officials told ABC News.

The man, who has not been named, was found with knives and possibly flew to L.A. while following an ex-girlfriend, according to police.

In addition to the knives, law enforcement found explosive devices at a Sheraton Hotel in downtown Denver, where he had stayed. None of the devices were detonated prior to being found.

So far, there have been no reports of explosives found in Los Angeles, ABC station KABC in Los Angeles reported.

He is a veteran of the U.S. military and served in Iraq and sources close to the investigation told ABC News that the man had sent letters to Veterans Affairs complaining about his treatment by the agency.

Investigators were trying to determine whether the man was on the radar of law enforcement agencies prior to his arrest.

Multiple sources within the WH have told me that the "memo" on the 100K National Guard soldiers was fake news designed to smoke out leaker.
