The Media Hype Surrounding Rob Porter is About Getting Rid of John Kelly

Hillary Clinton voters in action:  A Minnesota man named Edward LeRoy Wilson stole a car from a Wal Mart parking lot, but was arrested by police a few hours later after he called the owner from an auto repair shop to ask her why he couldn’t get the dang thing started again.  After being arrested, he told police officers that he knew stealing the car “wasn’t a good idea,” but did it anyway.    Holy cow.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein helped their favored Democrats and fake news media keep up the whole false “Trump is going to fire Robert Mueller and then that’ll be the beginning of the end for Trump” narrative over the weekend, by publishing an op/ed in the reliably fake Washington Post.  The Democrats and their fake news media agents have been pushing this false narrative since the day after Mueller was appointed as Special Counsel, in their never-ending efforts to create Trump-related scandals where none exist.  Having apparently run out of writers below the age of 80 who are still willing to write this nonsense, the WaPo pulled Woodward and Bernstein out of mothballs.  It’s just a matter of time until they play the Dan Rather card.

Donald Trump is not going to fire Robert Mueller – he has no reason to do so.  After 9 months on the job, Mueller has a big bag of nothing.  He is no real threat to this presidency.  Granted, he should have never been appointed, given that there was no underlying crime that is a requirement under the law for the appointment of a special counsel, and he and Rod Rosenstein both should be fired for this heinous waste of taxpayer funds.   That isn’t going to happen, and everyone knows it, but the Democrats and fake media believe they score political points against the President by perpetuating the myth.

They’re wrong in that assumption, too.  Recent polls now show clear majorities of Americans now believe the Obama FBI and intelligence agencies illegally spied on the Trump Campaign in spite of the fake media’s best efforts to cover that up.  The Democrats are clearly losing this PR war, and they are flailing about, trying to find some way to reverse the equation.

That’s what this whole Rob Porter fake scandal is about.  Last Thursday, I pointed out that the fake media was vastly over-playing a situation involving a fairly minor White House functionary being accused of domestic abuse as a means of avoiding doing any reporting on the steady drip, drip, drip of evidence implicating the Obama presidency in illegal spying activities.

But that’s not the only thing it’s about:  It’s also about getting Chief of Staff John Kelly.  Remember back to last August, when the fake news media broadly praised the appointment of General Kelly to become Chief of Staff.  There was broad optimism that he was just the guy to bring order to the perceived chaos within the White House staff, and that – and this is more important – he would be a a moderating influence on President Trump, a guy who would steer the President away from the policy choices the Democrats and fake news media hate, like border security and tax cuts.

Within a month, the fake media began to realize that, while their first hope was in fact taking place, that latter assumption was 180 degrees wrong.  On September 5, President Trump issued an executive order rescinding Barack Obama’s unconstitutional DACA order, and the fake news media’s hair was literally set on fire when General Kelly publicly endorsed the move.  Within days, rumors were spreading like wildfire all over Washington that Kelly hates the President, and that he would be resigning soon.  Obviously, that didn’t happen.  Fake journalists everywhere went into mourning:  Kelly isn’t influencing the President to shift his policies, Kelly is in fact on board with the Trump agenda!  Oh, the humanity!

We saw the same process in December, as the tax cuts were being enacted in congress.  Kelly makes public remarks endorsing the tax plan, and with hours rumors were flying that he hates the President again, and now this time he really will be resigning.  One story even claimed that Ivanka Trump was out scouting for candidates to replace Kelly, though why Ivanka would be tasked with that particular duty is anyone’s guess.  Why, “sources close to the White House” say it’s true!  Nope.

So now the Porter thing comes along, and the Democrats and fake journalists all see an opening to make up a bunch of false stories blaming it all on Kelly.  Pretty much every day since the story first broke, we’ve seen at least one new story based solely on unidentified “sources” claiming that the President is “furious” or “disappointed” with Kelly and is going to fire him.

That’s what all this hype is really all about:  Kelly is effective in his job, he is fully on-board with the Trump program, and he is a calming influence in the midst of high-stress situations.  Thus, the Democrats and fake news media identify him as a threat to their own agenda, and do everything they can to eliminate him.

It’s all very sleazy, even more than a little bit evil, but it’s who they are, and it’s what they do.

Just another day in fake news media America.

That is all.

    “Having apparently run out of writers below the age of 80 who are still willing to write this nonsense, the WaPo pulled Woodward and Bernstein out of mothballs. ”

    Much of what is going right now can be seen through the lens of as a sectarian wars between what is still the largest single generation in history, the Boomers.

    Trump is very much the best of a generation, even though I disagree with him here and there. (And I’m sure every sane person would do with me.) Anyway, there so much of the Trumpian outlook that is product of the his parents, the WWII generation. He’s picked up the very best of them and acted on it.

    Meanwhile, a critical mass of Boomer elites have rejected their parent’s outlook and have only accepted into the ranks those young people who match their outlook. Thus the Rubio, Ryan, and Trudeau (if we add Canada) weenies.

    Trump is the voice of the Boomers and those who came after them who were forgotten and shoved aside in the brave new world of their siblings and cousins, who were living post-history and whose a identities start in 1960.

    It makes sense that the generation who trusted noone over 30, would in their old age, trust noone under 50. I expect to see the Boomers in power refuse to leave until they’re in pine to very nice walnut boxes. They’ve created a situation where there’s very few to no people to carry on.

    I think of the cultural issue with those Boomers as in that last horrid Indiana Jones movie. It should have been a great and touching story about passing on the torch. But what’s the last scene? We look back at Indy, because of course, he’s totally irreplaceable and who cares about the kid? It’s sort of an iconic scene that captures what those Boomers are perceiving their relationship is to the human generations.

      Really good points – agree with them all.

    That was our side too. I saw many comments of those who lamented the exit of Steve Bannon and assumed that Gen. Kelly would some how “guide” Trump to GOPe opinions and prevent him from seeing critical information.

    Trump had all of those opinions before he ever met Steve Bannon or asked Gen. John Kelly to get his office to run smoothly. Gen. John Kelly wasn’t going to stop the man from browsing the Internet or turning on Fox News in the morning. It was a little silly.

      Yep. I wrote two pieces about the fact that Trump made Bannon, not the other way around. It pissed a lot of people off, but really, who cares?

    If assaulting your spouse disqualifies you from working in the White House why hasn’t anyone explained why Hillary is still qualified after she bloodied Bill Clinton with a thrown lamp, forcing him to get stitches after learning of Monica Lewinsky affair? This act was at least witnessed by Bill’s SS staff. Spousal abuse is totally unacceptable by either spouse but Hillary gets a pass….Why? Hillary screamed at Donna Brazile your a “Water Buffalo” after the NBC CNC forum and threw a glass of water at her. Seems like a bit of a double standard Dems can do no wrong don’t-cha-know!

    David,

    I think you’ve pretty much got a handle on the patterns that are repeating themselves on the left. Collusion – no? OK, mentally unfit – passed the exam? Ahhh…ummm…obstruction!! All the while underneath it all – sexist! racist!

    And now…chaos!! He’s gonna fire everybody! If he fires Mueller its going to be a crisis! A civil war!

    One thing I find funny is the left constantly cracks on Trump for being stupid (or worse), yet, he’s managed to hide the alleged collusion from Mueller’s team for over a year now. They can’t seem to figure out if he’s diabolical or mentally retarded. I guess whatever gets him out of office.

    On a side note, I’ve been a fan of the Showtime series “Homeland”. Last season, they were so sure that Hillary was going to win the election, they had a Madam President-elect who was the victim of an attempted assassination by right wingers.

    This season, which premiered last night has the new Madam President painted as a hard-core fascist who uses the federal government to jail everyone who plots against her. In just a couple of episodes, they tried to turn her into what they think Trump to be. Except she was basically a liberal when introduced to the show. The 180 was funny to see play out. Some liberal bias in the show, but still entertaining.
