A Bankrupt City In A Bankrupt State Lands The Olympic Games

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • In case you missed it because the fake news media couldn’t be bothered to report on it amid its unending obsession about their collusion fantasy play, the cities of Paris, France and Los Angeles, CA were selected by the International Olympic Committee to host the 2024 and 2028 Summer Olympic Games.  It remains to be decided which “lucky” city will host which year, but either way, both promise to be disasters of epic proportions.
  • Take Paris first:  Paris is sadly a city plagued by frequent, major Islamic terrorist attacks, and the city’s government has shown zero sign of being willing to do anything effective to truly resolve the issue.  Worse, France’s open borders policy virtually ensures that this problem is going to only become worse as the years go on, as more and more immigrants enter the country from Islamic nations.  Hosting an Olympic Games will require Paris to become a literal police state for a minimum of six weeks, and the cost of infrastructure and security-mandated improvements will be astronomical.
  • Los Angeles may be even worse.  LA is a bankrupt city in a bankrupt state run by mentally-bankrupt idiots.  So naturally, the city’s leaders want to host an event that will require them to go find someone willing to loan them tens of billions more dollars that will be needed to upgrade and vastly expand the city’s crumbling infrastructure, and tens of billions more to finance the building of all the massive new event venues that will be required.  No doubt, this sanctuary city in a sanctuary state which refuses to enforce U.S. immigration laws will come begging to the federal government to provide much of this funding.  DC Democrats will be more than willing to support such largesse because they are thoughtless sheep.  Any DC Republican who votes in favor of sending federal dollars to support this looming fiasco will richly deserve to be run out of office by his or her constituents at the next possible opportunity.  There is not one good reason why taxpayers in Texas or any other state should be required to provide a thin dime to help pay for this nonsense.
  • GOP Congressman Steve King of Iowa caused a stir in the leftist fake news media on Wednesday when he suggested that we could provide an initial down payment on paying for President Trump’s proposed southern border wall by simply transferring the half-billion dollars that would otherwise go to funding the Planned Parenthood abortion mills.  That made for a great half-day media cycle for Congressman King, but let’s be honest here:  We all know that the Republicans in congress are going to cave like a house of cards on both of those funding issues at the first sign of negative media coverage, don’t we?  Well, don’t we?  Yes, we do.  Let’s move on.
  • So, in the last few days we’ve had the news that The Rock is going to run for president, and Kid Rock is going to run for the senate against the insipid Debbie Stabenow.  Wonder what Rock Hudson would do if he were still alive?  And what about Dash Riprock of Beverley Hillbillies fame?  Oh, and hey, Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey were in “30 Rock” – does that mean we can get them to challenge Hillary for New York City Mayor, or Chelsea for that congressional seat?  Just so many “rock” solid possibilities here…

Just another day in what’s with all these “Rocks” running for office America.

That is all.

At Long Last, Senator Schumer, Have You No Shame?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The Wall Street Journal ran a story yesterday that didn’t have anything to do with Donald Trump Jr.  Yes, I swear it’s true, hard as that is to believe amid the fake news media feeding frenzy over its latest fake scandal.  The WSJ story deserves our attention because it puts the lie to the media narrative that the reason why the Trump Administration has had so few people confirmed to appointed positions is the slowness of their making the nominations, not obstruction by Chuck Schumer and his fellow Democrat blockaders.  Here’s the key passage:

“According to the Partnership for Public Service, as of June 28 Mr. Trump had nominated 178 appointees but the Senate had confirmed only 46. Barack Obama had 183 nominees confirmed by that date in his first term, and George W. Bush 130.

The White House has understandably begun to make a public issue of the delays, and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says it “has only itself to blame.” But a press release Mr. Schumer sent out Monday made the White House case, showing that the Senate has received 242 nominations but confirmed only 50 through June 30. Democrats are now the problem.”

  • So, next time some nitwit tells you that the dearth of confirmed political appointees “is all Trump’s fault!!!!!” (they always scream, don’t they?), ask them politely to quit lying to you.
  • It’s important to know that Schumer is able to accomplish this level of obstruction because he is the first Senate Minority Leader in history to simply abandon all concern for the well-being of the country and order his troops to demand cloture votes for each and every nominee presented to the Senate.  This of course comes only after Democrat Senators have used up all delaying tactics within the committee process, which can go on for months, and means that, when a nomination comes to the floor for a vote, there is a minimum 2 day delay before the matter can come up, and then a minimum of 30 hours for floor debate before the cloture vote to end debate can be held.  These are the senate rules as they exist today.  Given that as of Monday, the Senate only had 34 session days remaining on its calendar for the entire year, you can see the problem this represents.
  • But wait, there’s more!  It gets even more absurd for judicial nominees, where Senate Democrats have held up 21 of the 23 judges nominated by President Trump thus far.  Current rules for the Judiciary Committee – through which all judicial nominees must pass – include the so-called “blue card” rule.  This idiotic relic of a more collegial past, in which both political parties actually gave a damn about the country, forces Judiciary to wait until each nominee has received “blue cards” of approval from both senators who represent the state in which the judge would serve.
  • Here’s the thing we all must understand:  The Democrat Party does not give a damn about the future of this country.  The Party as a whole quit caring about national security half a century ago, it no longer cares about the ability of the executive branch to function properly, and it certainly doesn’t care about the ability of the judicial branch to adjudicate justice.  This is, after all, the political party that worked feverishly in Virginia last year to ensure convicted felons were able to vote in the November elections – the Democrats in fact view felons and violent criminals as a natural Democrat voter bloc.  And don’t even think about arguing that point with me – it is manifestly true.
  • Several months ago, I wrote a piece that discussed the fact that our constitutional system of government is to a large extent based on the assumption that voters would elect people to office who actually have a sense of shame.  The assumption was that a free, independent press protected by the First Amendment would serve as the public’s watchdog and shame bad actors into better behavior by exposing their abuses.  Barack Obama was able to engage in all sorts of shameful, often illegal behavior in office because he had no sense of shame, and the fake news media refused to report on his abuses.  Hillary Clinton was able to stay out of prison because James Comey and Loretta Lynch have no sense of shame, and the fake news media work feverishly to cover up her illegal behavior.
  • By the same token, Chuck Schumer and the Senate Democrats have no sense of shame, no concern for the country, and know the fake news media will never focus on their own abuses.  The occasional report in the WSJ is welcome, but will do nothing to force the Democrats to do what’s best for the country.
  • The proper staffing and functioning of the executive and judicial branches of the federal government have always assumed that members of both political parties in the Senate would place the needs of country above the crass interests of party.  Given that Democrats are obviously no longer willing to do that, the time has come for the GOP majority in the Senate to put an end to rules that are relics of a past that is long gone and will never return.

Just another day in Democrats have no shame America.

That is all.

The Times Slimes Trump Jr., But No Real Scandal Here

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Coverage of politics by the U.S. fake news media is filled with rank double standards, with Republicans always being held to a far higher standard of behavior than Democrats.  But none is ranker than the media double standard when it comes to dealings and entanglements with Russia.  The latest sliming of Donald Trump Jr. by the NYTimes and other fake news media outlets is just the latest in a long, long line of examples of the media’s literal insanity when it comes to matters involving Russia.
  • First, let’s look at what Mr. Trump Jr. is alleged to have done.  As of this morning, he is alleged by the NYTimes – on the word of “three people with knowledge of the situation”, what ever the hell that means – to have received an unsolicited email last June from some guy named Rob Goldstone, who had no official involvement with the Trump campaign.  In that email, Mr. Goldstone is alleged by the NYTimes to have encouraged Trump Jr. to meet with a woman – who had no position with the Russian government – who claimed that she had damaging information about the Hillary Clinton campaign, including information indicating that the Russian government was funding that campaign and the Democratic National Committee.  (Mr. Goldstone, by the way, denies making any such statement in his email.  But nevermind that, the Times is intent on making this into a scandal.)
  • Mr. Trump Jr. did take a meeting with this woman who, as it turned out, had no such information about the Russians, and instead really wanted to talk about an American law that prevents Americans from adopting Russian babies.  The meeting quickly broke up, and everyone went on their merry way – this, no one disputes. This, the NYTimes wants you all to believe is a major scandal.
  • Now, let’s look at what the NYTimes does not consider to be a scandal:  While serving as Secretary of State, Ms. Clinton brokered a deal that turned over roughly 20% of U.S. uranium reserves to a handful of Russian companies.  Shortly after that deal was finalized, those companies “contributed” millions of dollars to the Clinton Crime Family Foundation.  The NYTimes finds nothing suspicious about any of this at all.
  • Clinton Campaign Manager John Podesta has made millions of dollars from investments and sitting on boards of various Russian companies, and in fact maintained significant Russian investments while managing the Clinton campaign.  The NYTimes finds no issue with any of that.
  • During the 2012 presidential campaign, then-President Barack Hussein Obama was caught on an open mic whispering to Russian Foreign Minister Dmitry Medvedev “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved, but it’s important for him (Vladimir Putin) to give me space.  This is my last election.  After my election, I have more flexibility.”  Despite the clear message being sent here – that Obama felt the need to act tough towards Russia during the campaign, but would be more amenable once re-elected – the NYTimes saw nothing scandalous in this behavior.
  • Going back even further in time, to 1984, liberal hero Ted Kennedy flew to Moscow and literally begged the Russian government to intervene in the U.S. presidential election in a failed effort to prevent the re-election of Ronald Reagan.  No one at the NYTimes saw any issue with that at all, and Mr. Kennedy was able to serve in the U.S. Senate until the day he died.
  • Here’s reality:  During the campaign, representatives of both the Trump and the Clinton campaigns no doubt held dozens, if not hundreds of meetings with third parties claiming to have damaging information about the opposition.  This is an integral part of what every campaign refers to as “opposition research”, and these campaigns will take any real, true information they can get their hands on, regardless of the source.  There is nothing scandalous about anything we’ve learned about Trump Jr.’s meeting with this woman thus far, and damn sure nothing illegal about any of it.  Anyone who says otherwise is just a partisan hack, which of course, accurately describes everyone who works for the NYTimes.
  • In addition to that reality, given the many episodes in which stories published by the NYTimes about this presidency based on anonymous sources have been clearly demonstrated to be utterly false, there is a greater than 50/50 chance that this latest bit of journalistic malfeasance will ultimately have to be corrected or withdrawn.
  • But for the time being, this will be the story on which the entire fake news media obsesses as the Trump Administration continues to systematically erase the Obama policy legacy from the federal books.  Seems like a fair trade to me.

Just another day in fake news media America.

That is all.

U.S. Shale Industry Is Nimble, Except When It Isn’t

Last Friday I wrote about the single rig-drop in the Baker Hughes U.S. rig count, noting that it could be an early harbinger of a second-half 2017 slowing of the somewhat frantic pace of drilling we saw during the year’s first six months.  We’ll need to wait to see what happens in the next two weeks to be fairly sure whether or not that is the case.

But here’s the funny part:  as they are wont to do, many “experts” in the energy media are already telling their audiences that the trend is already here (which, again, is possible), which means the domestic industry is going to slow rapidly (not likely at all), which in turn means the crude price is about to rise back up above $50 in short order (again, not likely at all), which in turn means that, after a month or two, the U.S. industry will then again begin activating a bunch of additional rigs and drilling a bunch more wells before the end of 2017.

That last part is really, really unlikely, given current circumstances.

First, there was the report on Monday that OPEC’s June production rose significantly, to its highest level of 2017.  This indicates that more OPEC member countries are beginning to exceed their agreed-to quotas as time goes on.  Given that this has been a consistent OPEC pattern throughout its history, this comes as no surprise.

Second, as I wrote a couple of weeks ago, my belief based on discussions with industry contacts, and on 38 years of participating in oil and gas industry corporate budgeting processes, is that, barring a true price collapse into the $30s that lasts for at least a couple of months, the rig count will not fall rapidly, as some are predicting today.  Instead, we will most likely see a stagnation or very modest decline in the rig count in coming weeks as companies begin to execute on revised, lower capital budgets for the second half of the year.

Great News, Republicans! Hillary Clinton Is Back!

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Great news, Republicans!  Hillary Clinton, the Most Corrupt Woman in America, still refuses to go quietly into that good night.  Over the weekend, she was letting it be known to any idiot who still listens to her – which includes the majority of the voter base for the Democrat Party – that she plans to take a “major role” in killing…errrr, ummm…”helping” Democrat congressional candidates get slaughtered by….errrrr, ummmm….”defeat” Republicans and turn enough GOP districts to regain control of the House of Representatives.  (Boy, it was hard to type that with a straight face.)
  • Yes, friends, the very worst, least appealing presidential candidate in modern history, the woman who made Walter Mondale look like a campaigning stud by comparison, the candidate who had no message, no strategy and no ability to bring competent leadership into her own presidential campaign, has decided that she is just the gal to bring her tiny minority, regional political party back to majority status in Washington.  (Hey, maybe she’ll find time to go to Wisconsin this time!)  All I want to know is, how can I help to ensure that this utterly corrupt, clueless wretch of a human being takes the lead role in planning her failed party’s comeback?  It would be my honor.
  • Hey, as great as it is to have Hillary Clinton back in the news, it’s even better these days when the name James Comey rears its ugly head in news stories, which it did over the weekend.  The Hill reports that more than half of Mr. Comey’s famous leaked “private” memos about his encounters with President Trump contain – wait for it….wait for it…. – CLASSIFIED INFORMATION!  Remember when Mr. Comey called Hillary Clinton “extremely careless” in her handling of classified information?  Yeah…good times…good times…
  • Speaking of Democrats, they and their agents in the fake news media continued to ramp up their growing War on Women over the weekend.  The party that has embraced Sharia Law, men in middle school girls’ locker rooms and bathrooms, and the unfettered character assassination of any woman who serves in the Trump Administration, turned its collective sights – wait, that’s a gun analogy, and we all know Democrats hate guns – turned its collective character assassination machine on First Daughter Ivanka Trump over the weekend.  Her sin?  She sat in for the President for about 20 minutes during a G20 meeting when Mr. Trump had to leave a bit early for one of his many bi-lateral meetings during the event.  Since the discussion at hand was about a topic she has taken the lead on within the Administration, the move was completely appropriate, and no different than what every other G20 nation does during such meetings.  Naturally, ABC News filed a breathless fake report claiming Ms. Trump had “broken protocol” – an outright lie – and pretty much every other fake news outlet followed suit.
  • The attacks on Ivanka by Democrats in and out of the fake media were so absurd that German Chancellor Angela Merkel – no fan of the Trumps – weighed in, assuring everyone that, as host of the meeting, it was her decision who would sit in for the various leaders in various meetings.  Why do Democrats and fake journalists hate women?  It’s a very legitimate question to ask these days.
  • If you want to see something absolutely hilarious and truly frightening all in one, go watch this video.  It’s from an “Impeach Trump March” held in Chicago on July 2 by Antifa and other groups who pretend to be “anti-fascist.”  Watch as these “anti-fascists”, who are really nothing more than budding Nazis, cheer repeatedly as the speaker gives a talk that is made up almost entirely of quotes from speeches by – wait for it….wait for it…. – ADOLPH HITLER!  The best part is that one of the rally’s organizers was so impressed with the speaker that, when he was finished, he tried to recruit him to become involved with his “anti-fascist” group.  No really, I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Seriously.

Just another day in clueless fascists America.

Trump’s Warsaw Speech Shows Why The Radical Left’s Rage Won’t Get Better

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Quite often over the last eight months, I’ve been asked this question by friends and contacts disturbed by the increasingly radical and violent reaction by those on the American political left to the election and presidency of Donald Trump:  “When does this get better?  When does it calm down?”

My answer has been consistent:  “It doesn’t as long as Donald Trump is President.”

One great way to understand why it doesn’t, why the left – led by the ongoing tacit approval of every leader of the national Democrat Party – will only continue to become more radical and violent during the four or eight years of the Trump presidency, one need only read this passage from the President’s speech in Warsaw last week:

Finally, on both sides of the Atlantic, our citizens are confronted by yet another danger — one firmly within our control. This danger is invisible to some but familiar to the Poles: the steady creep of government bureaucracy that drains the vitality and wealth of the people. The West became great not because of paperwork and regulations but because people were allowed to chase their dreams and pursue their destinies.

Americans, Poles, and the nations of Europe value individual freedom and sovereignty. We must work together to confront forces, whether they come from inside or out, from the South or the East, that threaten over time to undermine these values and to erase the bonds of culture, faith and tradition that make us who we are.  If left unchecked, these forces will undermine our courage, sap our spirit, and weaken our will to defend ourselves and our societies.

But just as our adversaries and enemies of the past learned here in Poland, we know that these forces, too, are doomed to fail if we want them to fail. And we do, indeed, want them to fail. They are doomed not only because our alliance is strong, our countries are resilient, and our power is unmatched. Through all of that, you have to say everything is true. Our adversaries, however, are doomed because we will never forget who we are. And if we don’t forget who are, we just can’t be beaten. Americans will never forget.  The nations of Europe will never forget.

This passage encapsulates the core beliefs of the Trump Presidency:  that America is a great nation, that the culture that made it great will ultimately prevail, that borders and nationalities are important, that free people pursuing their dreams are what make America and other Western democracies great, that faceless bureaucrats piling burden atop burden on the people are an inhibitor to greatness, that forces who work to erase our values and change our culture are the greatest threat to our survival.  These are the core beliefs of a man and his supporters who truly love America, beliefs that are complete anathema to everyone who has succumbed to leftist doctrine.

The people who populate today’s radical left are by and large people under the age of 40 who bought into the neo-marxist, Alinskyite view of American history that has been taught on most college campuses since the early 1980s, and by craven Democrat politicians – like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and the Fake Indian Senator from Massachusetts – who seek to benefit politically by supporting their efforts.  In this view, America is the world’s Original Sin, the cause of all problems in the third world, an inherently racist, homophobic, Islamaphobic and every other kind of -phobic they can come up with society, and because of this, Americans do not deserve the prosperity and freedoms we have enjoyed.  Thus, that prosperity must be redistributed to the rest of the world via international scams like the Paris Climate Accords and major multi-lateral trade agreements, and those freedoms systematically diminished by the constant overlay of new, increasingly intrusive regulations from the federal government.

If you’re thinking, hey, that’s what we got from the Obama Administration, well, you’re catching on here.

It’s also what we would have gotten more and more and more from a Hillary Clinton presidency.  This, at its core, is why you have seen this never-ending outrage, this increasingly violent response from the American left, and it is why you will never see any Democrat national leader condemn the increasingly outrageous and violent acts against our society perpetrated by groups like Antifa.  We have to understand that such groups are largely created, organized and funded by George Soros and others who also fund the Democrat Party.   They are all interrelated, all funded and directed by the same people.

Prior to November 8, 2016, these people believed they had everything set up for the ultimate destruction of American culture and the socialization of American democracy.  Barack Obama had kept his 2008 promise to work to “fundamentally transform this nation,” and believed he had everything set in place for his designated successor, Hillary Clinton, to finish the job.  The bureaucracies were firmly in place and constantly growing; the justice department, state department, EPA and intelligence agencies had all been completely corrupted; the federal judiciary had been filled with radical judges who view the Constitution as a minor inconvenience, and the national news media was populated almost entirely by true believers who work hard every day to brainwash the public.  Even better, the borders were wide open, with potential future Democrat voter blocs pouring into the country every day.

It was all there.  Those on the radical left had come so close to their goal that they could taste it.  All that remained was to count the votes, anoint the new leftist strong woman, and complete the job.  Four years of Hillary might get it done; eight years certainly would.

But the vote did not go their way, and the winner was a man who symbolizes everything they hate:  success, wealth, love of country, support for the culture and way of life that made America a great nation to begin with.  It wasn’t just that a Republican had won, it was that the wrong kind of Republican had won:  a Republican who had no fear of them or their propaganda agents in the national news media; a Republican who promised to aggressively go about reversing every policy implemented during the last eight years, and has already made great progress in doing so; a Republican who promised to work to take America out of the international redistributionist scams entered into by Obama, and has already done so; a Republican who promised to replace the feckless Obama policy of “leading from behind” with the renewal of real American leadership in international relations, and has already done so.  They could have lived with another Republican president who feared the fake news media and whose policies were just slower versions of Democrat priorities; they can’t live with Donald Trump, just as they never really could live with Ronald Reagan.

Thus, this is not going to get better as long as Donald Trump remains the President of the United States.  The outrage won’t end – it will only grow stronger.  The invention of phony scandals will not end – they will just constantly shift and grow increasingly absurd.  The constant assassination dog-whistling in the fake news media will only grow more overt and intense.  The radical American left is no different than ISIS:  it cannot be appeased, it cannot be contained, it cannot be negotiated with.  It fundamentally cannot be reasoned with via truth and facts because it fundamentally rejects reason, truth and facts.  It must be defeated, again and again and again, by Americans of good will who want our nation to remain free.  Ultimately, it must be destroyed.

Make no mistake about it:  If the radical left in this country is not ultimately destroyed, it will ultimately destroy America as we know it.  This is the reality in which we live.  These are very, very perilous times.

That is all.

Trump Triumphs in Europe

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • President Trump made a magnificent and inspiring speech in Poland yesterday, one filled with a soaring defense of democracy and free societies and even a free press.  Naturally, the fake free press in the U.S. in unison declared the speech to be “dark”, in keeping with the approved talking points it had received in advance from the Democrat Party.
  • CNN’s bed-wetting fake White House reporter, the petulant Jim Acosta, told that network’s fading viewer base that President Trump’s joint press conference with Poland’s President Andrezj Duda was “fake news” because he took two questions from conservative news organizations in between questions from hyper-aggressive fake reporters from NBC and other leftist fake news outlets.  Mr. Acosta obviously suffers under the delusions that what he is doing is exactly the same as how Sam Donaldson performed during the Reagan years.  The truth, of course, is that Jim Acosta is not fit to clean Sam Donaldson’s Fruit of the Looms.
  • Speaking of President Duda and CNN, CNN and other fake media outlets breathlessly reported throughout the day that Mr. Duda’s wife refused to shake hands with President and Melania Trump when they met yesterday.  Some fake outlets continued to purvey that false report even after films of the first couples shaking hands were broadly disseminated late in the day.  Mr. Duda got so fed up with it that he issued a tweet saying “Contrary to some surprising reports my wife did shake hands with Mrs. and Mr. Trump after a great visit. Let’s FIGHT FAKE NEWS.”  After which Jim Acosta no doubt needed a change in underwear.
  • In other fake news news, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow received fake documents from some anonymous source yesterday that purport to prove that some Trump campaign officials were colluding with the Russians last year.  The amazing thing about this story is that, rather than just go on the air and pretend the documents were real, as we would have expected Ms. Maddow to do in the normal course of her efforts to libel the President, she actually figured out they were fake and warned other reporters of their fakeness.  Just another sure sign that the Democrat/Media axis of nitwittery has decided to move along from their fake collusion fantasy play.
  • President Trump, in his speech yesterday, took a very aggressive posture towards Vladimir Putin and Russia, making it even more difficult for the Media/Democrat complex to keep up the Collusion facade.  By yesterday afternoon, all fake reporters were left with was to speculate about how “frightening” it is to have Donald Trump representing the U.S. in a conversation with the leader of Russia, a prospect far more normal Americans feared when Barack Obama was representing the U.S. in such discussions.
  • As always happens at G20 Summits, violent protests by anti-capitalist lunatics broke out on the streets, and of course some in the fake news media tried to imply the protests were about President Trump.  Another outright lie.
  • In other news, PA Senator Pat Toomey told a local TV station that the reason why Senate Republicans didn’t have an Obamacare replacement plan ready in January was “because we didn’t think Trump would win.”  *sigh*.  Of course, that doesn’t help to explain Senate Republicans still don’t have an Obamacare replacement plan ready in July, does it?  Honestly, congressional Republicans are somewhat tolerable these days only because they aren’t congressional Democrats.

Just another day in fake news media America.

All The News That’s Fit To Fake

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Indications abound that the Russia collusion fantasy play is dead as a doorknob.  Here are some examples:

  • Writing in the Washington Post, fake columnist David Ignatius, a regular guest on “Morning Joe”, posted a column titled “Working With Russia Might Be The Best Path To Peace In Syria”.  I kid you not, somehow a piece with that theme made it past the WaPo’s fake editors, despite the fact that the WaPo has for the last two years been brutally pounding Donald Trump for even thinking such a thing, and the fact that the fake newspaper has willingly participated in supporting a Democrat/fake media-invented fantasy that alleges that Trump is in Vladimir Putin’s pocket.
  • Next up is this story in Politico, in which several leading Democrats are quoted moving the goal posts on how the fantasy play’s final scene may eventually play out.  Here, instead of alleging that Trump or people associated with this campaign may have somehow coordinated efforts with Russia to “hack” the U.S. election system, the Democrats have now begun to speculate that some nebulous, unidentified “Americans” or “American insiders” – whatever the hell that means – might have been the culprits who held the Russians to….ummmm…to do….welllll….to hack into….ummmm….ok they have no idea what any of this even means.
  • Then there is this unintentionally hilarious defense from The Hill of the fake news media’s having to retract a raft of fake stories and fire a bunch of people in recent weeks:  “Together, the corrections and retractions amount to only a few stories out of the thousands published every day. But the high-profile nature of the errors hurts the media’s credibility at a time when the press is under more scrutiny than ever before, giving new political ammunition to critics of the mainstream press.”  In other words, the fake journalists at The Hill aren’t at all concerned about the fakeness of the stories on the various Democrat fantasy plays, they’re worried that the retractions and firings are helping the public catch onto the truth.  Typical.
  • And the fakery is not limited to the Russia Collusion fantasy.  The Associated Press had to retract a fake story late last week in which it alleged that EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is unjustly tilting environmental policy in favor of chemical companies.  The key foundation for the story was a meeting the AP said Mr. Pruitt had with Dow Chemical CEO Andrew Liveris.  The problem is, an investigation by Breitbart revealed that no such meeting ever took place.  The AP initially refused to retract or even correct its fake story after Breitbart had notified its fake editors that their mendacity had been discovered, and only relented after the story went viral on Twitter and other social media.
  • And hey, occasionally one of these fake news outlets even files a fake story without even knowing it’s fake.  Take the NYTimes, for instance, which filed a story on Tuesday about the Crazy Little Fat Guy who runs North Korea.  In the story, the NYTimes’ fake writers quote a Twitter account named @DPRK_News, which it identifies as a North Korean state-run media outlet.  Only problem is, that Twitter account is a well-known fake.  Upon learning of this, the fake editors at the fake newspaper issued a meek “correction” to their fake story.

Seriously, you would think that at some point, these fake editors and reporters would get tired of having to issue all these retractions and corrections, and maybe start focusing on real news.  But then, that would make them real editors and reporters, and none of them remember what that even feels like anymore, assuming they ever did.

Just another day in fake news media America.

CNN Stoops to Blackmail and Child Abuse

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The first rule of holes:  If you find yourself trapped in a hole, stop digging.

The fake journalists who infest CNN just can’t seem to comprehend this simple rule.  On Tuesday, they just continued to dig their hole deeper, as they tracked down the 15 year-old boy who mocked up the viral video showing a fake President Trump body slamming a fake CNN in a wrestling ring.  When the CNN thugs found the boy, they threatened to expose his identity unless he apologized, and then issued the following big-brother statement:

CNN is not publishing “HanA**holeSolo’s” name because he is a private citizen who has issued an extensive statement of apology, showed his remorse by saying he has taken down all his offending posts, and because he said he is not going to repeat this ugly behavior on social media again. In addition, he said his statement could serve as an example to others not to do the same

CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.

Wow.  If that is not a classic case of pure blackmail (see image below), then we should do away with the term.  Given that this citizen also happens to be a minor, a strong argument can be made that CNN’s actions against him is a gross form of child abuse.  If this does not generate investigations by the FCC and the Justice Department, something is terribly wrong.

Indeed, CNN’s action is so abusive that even many leftist news sites and journalists are speaking out against it.  German Lopez, a reporter for the far-left Vox.com site, said the following in a tweet:  “I can’t emphasize how bad this is on CNN’s part. This is basically “don’t post stuff we don’t like or we’ll dox you.” Extremely unethical.”

In taking this idiotic action, CNN has put itself in a war with millions of teenage boys all over the globe who happen to be hackers.  Already, the internet groups 4Chan and Anonymous have declared war on the fake news network, and others will no doubt do so by the end of the day today.  4Chan has already begun compiling a list of CNN’s advertisers and asking its 7 million members to engage in a boycott action.  The attention of millions of expert hackers have no doubt also trained themselves on CNN’s systems this morning.

All of this is also just one more reason why the White House should revoke CNN’s press credentials.  By publicly blackmailing an American citizen, CNN has clearly and unambiguously revealed itself to be a true enemy of the people.

The White House has no obligation whatsoever to allow the employees of such an abusive, bullying organization to wander the halls of one of our nation’s most sacred national sites.  Sadly, CNN behaves the way it does because its fake journalist employees know the fake news media has no accountability to anyone.  The organization obviously views the First Amendment as a free pass to engage in the most heinous behaviors imaginable.

The First Amendment exists to protect a free and responsible press, not blackmailers and assassination dog-whistlers.  It is long past time for the Trump Administration to act in the best interests of the American people and ban the thugs at CNN from any press event involving any part of the executive branch of government.

Just another day in blackmailing fake news America.

That is all.
