Laurene Powell Jobs's Ties to China May Be Behind Insidious Trump Hit Piece In The Atlantic

As the hit piece by far left “magazine”, The Atlantic, regarding comments Trump never actually said about the military, continues to make the rounds, it’s since been revealed that Laurene Powell Jobs, heir to Steve Jobs’s fortune, is a majority owner in The Atlantic and also a huge donor to democrat candidates, including Biden.

But that only explains part of the possible reason for the fake news article.

The widowed Jobs also retains huge amounts of stock in Apple and Disney, both of which are dependent on national policies that appease China. Trump’s tough-on-China policies are cutting into the elitist billionaries’ fortunes, Mrs. Jobs included.

In short, as majority owner of the Atlantic she has the means, the motive of protecting her Chinese operations, and opportunity as an outsized role in influencing the Atlantic’s timing of an anonymously sourced hit piece.

She is guilty of making up the story based on the painstaking sourcing by the author.

Agreed with others, this thread is begging for conspiracy theories status.

Literally the opening argument by the article...

“As the hit piece by far left “magazine”, The Atlantic, regarding comments Trump never actually said about the military, continues to make the rounds, it’s since been revealed that Laurene Powell Jobs, heir to Steve Jobs’s fortune, is a majority owner in The Atlantic and also a huge donor to democrat candidates, including Biden.”

It then goes on to talk about business investment with some involvement in China... the irony of thegatewaypundit going there defending Trump.

I have few pleasures in life, but one of them is immediately tearing up subscription offers from that magazine, which is taken way too seriously by people who should know better.

The American and the Chinese media do have one thing in common: They follow the party line.

Wow! When nominal President Biden and de facto President Harris take over in three months, the Atlantic will be full of praise for China.

It's hardly a conspiracy theory to note that The Atlantic is as much a biased publication as The WAPO.
The only unanswered question is why so much ... but does it really matter?
Ties to Red China by both certainly contribute to their motivations and both being far-Left by habit and practice serve to complete the painting.

As I’ve stated before, they don’t call him China Joe for nothing. I fully expect the Chinese communists to work hard to elect Joe. Biden is for sale, Trump’s not.

The democrat elites were getting rich on China deals under Obama, and the outsized efforts to destroy Trump are simply due to them wanting their gravy train back, which the Chinese will be pleased to do. “MCGA Joe!”

You TDS’er are defending the democrat elites who sold America’s soul to China. Where’s your cut?

When Trumpsters have to resort to quoting “analysis” from Rasmussen, you know they know that the end is in sight.

As opposed to TDS sufferers treating the Atlantic story as fact based on unnamed sources?

The reporter stands by the story.

Trump’s open disparagement of military officials is well documented, as is his usual lack of respect.

No once doubts the story. It fits the pattern.

You know it as well as I do.

Rasmussen IS grabbing at straws. Trump’s disdain for actual military service is well documented, and goes back three generations. Donald was not the Trump family’s first draft dodger.

There is plenty of doubt on the Atlantic story, from the timing to the clear bias. Anyone with common sense can see that.
