Harvey Weinstein Is Not A Joking Matter

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Yesterday morning I told you that the Clinton Crime Family Foundation was not going to give up one thin dime of the quarter million it received from disgraced former Hollywood high muckety-muck Harvey Weinstein.  As if like clockwork, by the day’s end, a spokesman for the big slush fund tweeted that – guess what? – not one thin dime of Weistein’s hush money would be returned or given to a real charity.  And hey, if you’re the Clintons, why pretend to be anything other than the clawing, grasping, money-hoarding sleazebags everyone knows they are?  It’s gotten them this far, the fake news media will cover for them, and a week from now this will all be as forgotten in the national consciousness as the death of Vince Foster.
  • Speaking of Harvey Weinstein, it appears to me that the nation reached “Peak Weinstein” over this past weekend.  The clearest indicator of that reality is the edict in pop culture that you cannot joke about Harvey Weinstein and his crimes.  Un-funny late night TV host James Corden, with whom I am so unfamliar that I had to google his name to get the spelling right, found this out the hard way when he was lambasted in social media and later, the legacy media for telling a bunch of not funny Weinstein jokes during a gig hosting a charity event Saturday evening.
  • After Actor/Producer/Director Rose McGowan led the Twitter-based roasting of Corden, the comic issued a formal apology for his offending remarks.  Given that Ms. McGowan alleges that she was raped by Weinstein and then black-balled by his Hollywood sex offender support group that pervades Hollywood’s debased culture, it’s easy to see why she and other women who Weinstein abused during his 30-year reign of terror don’t think any of this is a laughing matter.  That seems pretty obvious, doesn’t it?
  • Welllllllllllllllll, not if you’re veteran sportscaster Al Michaels, apparently.  By the time Micheals went on the air Sunday night, the Corden controversy had been swirling for a good 20 hours, but he must’ve missed the NBC memo about the whole dust-up.  Or maybe NBC’s management didn’t sent out a memo, assuming their sportscasters wouldn’t be making on-air jokes about a big Hollywood muckety-muck’s travails, preferring instead to focus on things like maybe which team had the most attention-seeking players taking a knee for the national anthem.
  • But no, Michaels decided it would be really cool right in the middle of the game to compare the week the New York Giants had had to Weinstein’s week, to which his more-alert partner Chris Collinsworth responded with about six seconds of radio silence.  Yikes.  Naturally, Michaels then obviously got his memo from higher-ups at NBC, and soon after the broadcast ended he also issued a formal apology for telling a stupid joke about a subject that is not funny.
  • So, a note to all you comics and aspiring comics out there, longing to whip out your repertoire of Harvey Weinstein jokes:  Stop.  Just stop.  Nothing about what Harvey Weinstein did is funny.  Oh, there is tons of irony in this situation, as it applies to Hollywood’s larger depraved culture and to all the Democrat politicians – especially anyone named Clinton or Obama – who are desperate to find ways to keep Weinstein’s hush money, but none of this is funny.  Women were raped here, abused in heinous ways, their careers and lives destroyed by an out-of-control monster who everyone in Hollywood knew about for years and did nothing to stop him.
  • What the Weinstein scandal is, is tragic.  The most tragic aspect of it is that Weinstein is far from the only monster out there, and in fact most likely is just a representative of an overall culture of abuse that probably will be allowed to continue to exist as the fake news media, which is desperate to shift the public’s attention off of its Democrat benefactors who bathed in Weinstein’s money, moves on to other, faker news.
  • Thus, within a few weeks, it will most likely be business as usual for all the harassers, rapists and pedophiles who dominate Hollywood culture, and the average American with the attention span of a field mouse will go right back to paying six bucks for a 64 oz. Diet Coke while watching mediocre films at their local cineplex.
  • That, friends, is no joking matter.

Just another day in short attention span America.

That is all.

STEER: A Business Model That Works

It was great to be able to write this issue’s cover feature on the South Texas Energy & Economic Roundtable (STEER) and its outstanding staff, including President and CEO Omar Garcia. Watching the organization have so much success has been very rewarding, since I played a minor role in its creation back in 2012; and writing the piece provided a chance to reflect on the STEER business model and why the oil and gas industry should try to replicate it in other parts of the country.

By late 2011, it had become obvious to everyone that the Eagle Ford Shale was a world-class resource that represented an unprecedented opportunity for economic development in South Texas. Shortly after a lunch during which I and a group of colleagues talked about how best to go about protecting this opportunity, I got on a conference call with the Haynesville Shale Operators’ Committee (HSOC). This coincidence of timing was what spurred my involvement in the germination of STEER.

HSOC was the brainchild of the Louisiana Oil & Gas Association (LOGA) and its President, Don Briggs. Created during the height of the development of the Haynesville Shale natural gas development, the organization served as an extremely effective voice for the industry in what was at the time the busiest shale development region of the country. The challenge the Haynesville Shale presented to LOGA was its concentration in the northwest corner of the state, hundreds of miles from the state capital of Baton Rouge, where LOGA’s offices were located.

Rather than have its staff constantly travel back and forth between Baton Rouge and Shreveport to help its members address community and regulatory issues, LOGA came up with the model of establishing a committee within its organizational structure that essentially functioned as a separate trade association. To become members of HSOC, companies paid separate dues, and the committee itself had its own separate staff.

To further distinguish HSOC as a separate entity, the HSOC staff seldom became engaged in the single most crucial role of any state trade association — lobbying the state’s legislature. Instead, HSOC focused on helping members with community and media relations, functions that have not traditionally been strong points for the industry’s legacy associations.

The model worked. HSOC was a tremendous asset for producers, the media and communities in the region, all of whom needed an honest-broker intermediary to help understand and communicate with one another.

Seeing no reason why this model wouldn’t work just as well in South Texas — where the sudden, massive growth in oil and gas activity was very predictably creating lots of friction and challenges in the local communities — I took the idea to Rob Looney, then-President of the Texas Oil & Gas Association (TXOGA), one of the industry’s largest trade associations, headquartered in Austin. My involvement ended there, since I had a conflicting role with one of the industry’s national trade associations at that time.

The NFL Can Never Go Back After Kneel-Down Sunday

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The NFL commits Hari-kari – So, President Trump went off on the NFL coddling its players who refuse to stand for the national anthem on Saturday, and in return got an entire weekend filled with progressives and fake journalists defending players who disrespect our nation’s flag.  As a bonus, he got incompetent NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and numerous NFL team owners stupidly doing the same thing, as the number of players showing their unpatriotic feelings multiplied prior to Sunday’s games.
  • Have fun with that. – One can only wonder when Goodell and these owners will suddenly wake up and realize that they have made their league, whose fan base is made up mostly of patriotic, middle class, blue collar Americans, the center of the universe for disrespecting the American flag and our national anthem?  Will they ever come to understand that, now that they have sanctioned this “kneel-down weekend”, they can never go back?  The NFL is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of the unpatriotic American political left.
  • Maybe he can fill his stands by offering Ellen’s fans gift bags from L’Oreal and Chelsea’s fans bottles of Stolichnaya – But hey, Ellen Degeneres and Chelsea Handler tweeted that they were watching the NFL games yesterday, so Goodell’s got that going for him.
  • Call it Baiting With the Progressives – I’m thinking next the President should go off on Josef Stalin, so we can have a full week of progressives and fake journalists defending Stalin.  Then he could do Mao, then Hitler, then Che Guevara, make it a weekly thing, sort of like Dancing With The Stars.  The President could then finish it all off by issuing some negative tweets about Satan, so we can have a week of progressive/fake journalist Satan defending.
  • Hey, there’s an idea! – Honestly, if President Trump went off on carbon monoxide, progressives and fake journalists would hook a hose up to their car exhaust and breathe it for a week.
  • Four years from now they’ll be electing an Imam, not a Chancellor – German voters continued their nation’s march down the path of cultural suicide, re-electing open borders lunatic Angela Merkel to a fourth term as the country’s chancellor.  Merkel’s party only received 33% over the overall vote, but in Germany’s parliamentary system, that is enough to get her another four years during which she can continue turning her country over to Islam.  From the outside looking in, it is easy to see the German frog is being boiled by Ms. Merkel and her globalist regime, but the frog never realizes it is being boiled until it is too late.
  • Time to kill this story – The shooter in a Sunday morning attack on a church in Antioch, Tennessee has been identified as a 25 year-old immigrant from the Sudan named Emanuel Kidega Samson.  You will never see another report about this incident, in which one innocent person was murdered and seven others injured, in the fake news media, because it doesn’t fit their narrative.
  • Keeping up with the 2020 competition – Sen. Ted Cruz told an audience at Austin’s Texas Tribune Festival on Sunday that he can’t support the Graham/Cassidy Obamacare reform bill “right now”.  Hey, you didn’t really think Sen. Cruz was going to let Sen. Rand Paul take all the spotlight from the “muh principles” sector of the Republican base, did you?
  • Perhaps in response to specific concerns expressed by Cruz and Paul, Senators Cassidy and Graham announced they will introduce a revised version of their bill on Monday.  Yeah, that should work out.
  • Back to the NFL:  Pittsburgh Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin attempted to remove his players from the whole controversy, having them remain in the locker room until after the anthem was through being played.  This was a perfectly respectable approach the matter, since it has never been unusual at football games at any level for the anthem to be played before the teams take the field.  But Tomlin failed to account for the feelings of one of his players.  Alejandro Villenueva, a former Army Ranger, separated from the team so he could show his respect for the anthem and the flag he had fought to preserve during his three tours in Afghanistan.  Tomlin and several of his coaches, to their undying credit, stood at attention on the sidelines while the anthem was being played.  This is an intelligent and respectable approach to the issue that should have been emulated throughout the league.
  • Too late now.

Just another weekend in Roger Goodell is a moron who is destroying his game America.

That is all.

Hollywood Is Dead, And That’s Great For America

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • If you tuned in to yesterday’s Campaign Update, you know that I warned you all that this new Jennifer Lawrence vehicle titled “mother” was going to be Hollywood’s next big stink bomb.  Lo and behold, just a few hours after I posted that piece, film critic Rex Reed – who has got to be about 150 years old at this point – published his review of this flick, which he calls the worst movie of the year, possibly of this century:   “This delusional freak show is two hours of pretentious twaddle that tackles religion, paranoia, lust, rebellion, and a thirst for blood in a circus of grotesque debauchery to prove that being a woman requires emotional sacrifice and physical agony at the cost of everything else in life, including life itself.” That, my friends, is a stink bomb.
  • Pity poor Rex, though:  I knew the film was going to suck just from reading the director’s statement on how he derived its plot;  Mr. Reed had to sit through the atrocity before he could pen his review of it.  So I definitely got the best of this deal.
  • Hollywood as we have known it for the last 100 years is dead.  It is dead because it is now an industry filled by empty people who have never had an original thought in their entire lives.  It is dead because these empty people are no longer able to turn out films to which the common man can relate, because these empty people have lost all ability to relate to the common man.  It is dead because everything turned out by Hollywood today is entirely derivative of something Hollywood has already turned out before (thus, last year’s inexplicable remake of Ben Hur; thus, this year’s 6th or 7th installment of Pirates of the Caribbean), and because the impulse by these empty people to fill their works with leftist political lectures robs their derivative works of all possible entertainment value.
  • Jennifer Lawrence is kind of cute.  She can sort of act.  Nobody gives a flying rat’s ass what she thinks about climate change or race relations.  People want to buy tickets to movies that entertain them – which explains why any cartoon film with Minions in it will do spectacular box office – not to films that lecture them.  If people want to be lectured, they can go pull up any random YouTube video of Hillary Clinton promoting her new book.  Note to Hollywood:  Nobody does that.
  • Hollywood as we have known it is dead, yes it is.  It survived for years thanks to America’s seemingly insatiable appetite for mindless blockbusters based on mindless comic books.  The box office for those blockbusters enabled leftist, anti-American producers to continued doling out millions of dollars to leftist directors to produce unappealing, box-office disaster films filled with leftist propaganda starring modestly-talented, sort of cute leftist actors.
  • But those days are gone.  America’s appetite for mindless comic book blockbusters has run its course, and Hollywood has suffered through two straight record summer box office disasters the last two years.  When even The Rock is no longer a guarantor of box office success – as with this summer’s disastrous remake of Bay Watch – you know the goose that has laid all these golden eggs is running out of steam.
  • It’s not just movies, it’s television, too.  There was a time when Norman Lear could make a sitcom filled with liberal propaganda, and 25% of the American public would be standing around water coolers and break rooms the next day talking about what Maude or Archie Bunker had to say the previous evening.  Now, if a sitcom attracts 2% of the public for an audience it has had a gigantic night.
  • Hollywood has lost its influence because its little bubble-contained culture became completely antithetical to the real American culture over the last 40 years.  Ordinary Americans became sick of having their values lampooned and sensitivities insulted at every turn, and gradually began to realize they could change the channel or simply quit paying to see these awful flicks at the theaters.
  • This is all a great thing for American society.  It means our culture is generally healthy, because a culture that rejects obvious scams and blatant disregard for common values is a culture that remains strong at its base.
  • The strongest sign of the health of America’s core culture came this week when Tuesday night’s benefit show headlined by a broad array of Hollywood leftwingers managed to raise $14.5 million for hurricane relief.  That same evening, George Strait, the all-American country singer, held a separate event along with a few of his fellow country singers and raised $20 million.  Meanwhile, the all-American football player J.J. Watt has managed to raise more than $31 million all by himself.
  • There is a message for Hollywood leftists in all of that, and that message is that ordinary Americans are sick of you clowns.  The fact that a film like mother even got made tells us that Hollywood has not received this message.  And I’m cool with that.  You should be, too.

Just another day in dying Hollywood America.

That is all.

Employee Claims Google Is A Religious Cult; In Other News, Water Is Wet

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • A current employee of Google told a reporter for Breitbart that the tech giant is “run like a religious cult.”  Well, welcome to the world of progressivism, in which everything is treated like a religious cult, complete with texts filled with dogmatic nonsense (such as gender is not determined by biological factors), forced, non-natural behaviors that, if violated result in group shunning and ridicule (“climate deniers”), and forced denial of truth (hey, maybe that deal with Iran wasn’t so great after all).
  • The latest allegation comes fresh on the heels of the controversy over Google, Inc’s having fired an employee who wrote a 10-page memo lambasting this employer for its failure to address its epidemic diversity issues.  True to religious cult form, the employee wasn’t fired for what he actually wrote in the memo, but for what fake news media outlets falsely alleged he had said in the memo.  This classic hive behavior is a hallmark of American progressive behavior, and Google, Inc. is just a small part of that hive.
  • For those unfamiliar with the term “hive behavior”, it’s really pretty simple:  whenever a bee becomes injured and infirm, its fellow bees make no effort at rehabilitation – that would, after all, require sentient thought or at least an instinct for caring – but rather systematically and rapidly force the debilitated bee from the hive.  It also describes the manner in which a hive filled with thousands of bees all react exactly the same way in unison to outside stimuli.
  • We see these behaviors in progressives all the time.  If you’re not willing to simply parrot everything Al Gore claims about the environment, even though literally nothing he claimed in his first film has turned out to be true, you are shunned as a “climate denier”.  If you criticize Maxine Waters for the obvious fact that she is a mean-spirited, raging dimwit, you are shunned as a “racist”.  If you voted for Donald Trump because Hillary Clinton is an obvious career criminal, you are shunned as a “sexist”.  If you try to engage any progressive in a fact-based discussion on any issue, all you will invariably get in return is a rote recitation of whatever Rachel Maddow had to say about it on her TV show the night before.  Oh, and name-calling, lots and lots of name-calling.
  • In other words, if you aren’t willing to suspend simple acknowledgement of the reality all around us in your daily life, and if you base your views on key issues on that reality, logic and facts, you are, to the progressive hive, literally a heretic who is to be shunned and demonized.
  • So, yes, Google is run like a religious cult because the management at Google is uniformly made up of progressives.  The same is no doubt true at other tech giants like Facebook and Twitter.  If you accept a job at one of these firms, and you find yourself unwilling to simply recite the dogma and act in unison with the hive, you will soon be identified as “damaged”, as the writer of the 10-page memo was, and very quickly removed.  The hive made no effort to defend its employee, or to rehabilitate him – doing those things, after all, would require adherence to the truth and actual caring about his well-being.  Regardless of what his memo did or did not say, the employee violated Google’s religious dogma, the first tenet of which is obviously that “Google is unfailingly good”.  Once he did that, he was damaged goods.  Plus, he’s apparently a white male, an unprotected class, which made his swift removal laudable among the company’s army of mindless, hive-dwelling Social Justice Warriors.
  • Progressivism is a religious cult.  Once you accept that basic reality, it all begins to make sense.

Just another day in religious cult-ridden America.

That is all.

What A Difference A Presidential Tweetstorm Makes

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Boy, what a difference a few tweets makes, huh?  After President Trump had gone after his thus far lackluster performance in office, Attorney General Jeff Sessions suddenly woke up, displaying a sudden new focus on things that actually matter.  Just a few hours after the President’s latest tweet storm, federal agents arrested the chief IT specialist for ex-DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schulz, Imran Awan, as he was attempting to flee the country through Dulles International Airport.  The FBI also announced it has seized a set of “smashed hard drives” that Awan had left behind at his home.  Mr. Anwan had also worked for several other Democrat congressional members in addition to Rep. Schulz.  Nice to see the Justice Department focusing on bringing really bad people to justice rather than ensuring that rural sheriffs get to keep and drive the Maserati’s and speedboats they confiscate from arrested drug dealers.
  • Later in the day, a “source” at the Justice Department told The Washington Post that the Attorney General plans to make a public progress report in the next few days about several ongoing investigations into criminal leaks containing classified information that have been regularly emanating from various government intelligence agencies since President Trump assumed office.  If you think this “source” didn’t give that information to the Post at the request of the AG, you might be naive.
  • And finally, late in the afternoon, the AG announced a tough new policy that would deny Justice Department grant funds to cities that refuse to cooperate with immigration officials tasked with enforcing the country’s immigration laws.  Such grants would now only go “to cities and states that comply with federal law, allow federal immigration access to detention facilities, and provide 48 hours notice before they release an illegal alien wanted by federal authorities.”
  • Who knows?  Maybe the AG’s sudden new focus on stuff that actually matters instead of who might be smoking pot in downtown Denver will actually save his job.  It’s a damn shame it took a public berating from the POTUS to refocus his attention.
  • So you’re sayin’ there’s still a chance! – Great news, everybody!  The so-called “Cal-Exit” movement that hopes to take California out of the USA is still alive!  The Sacramento Bee reports that the California secession movement was given the go-ahead by the state’s Attorney General to begin collecting the required 585,000 signatures to get the initiative placed on the 2018 ballot.  Sadly, the signatures must come from residents of California;  otherwise, I would already be on a plane out to the Golden State to add my name to the list.  But I and millions of other non-Californians will always be behind this noble effort in spirit.
  • After Vice President Pence had cast the deciding vote allowing the debate to begin on the Obamacare Repeal and Replace effort in the U.S. Senate, Senate Republicans who had been promising to repeal Obamacare for seven long years had the chance later in the evening to vote in favor of an amendment that would do exactly that.  Nine Republicans, including eight who had voted to repeal Obamacare in the past, refused to do so last night, now that they have a president who would actually sign such a bill.   Those eight Republicans are Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Rand Paul of Kentucky, Bob Corker of Tennessee, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Dean Heller of Nevada, Jerry Moran of Kansas, Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Mike Lee of Utah.  Susan Collins also voted against the amendment, but Sen. Collins has always been a reliable Democrat vote on healthcare issues, and never voted to repeal Obamacare while Obama was President.  The other eight have no excuse.
  • Speaking of Senator Collins. her aides need to exercise a little more control over her gabby mouth when she’s on a hot mic.  Yesterday it was revealed in various news reports that she said all sorts of goofy and nasty things while in that situation on Monday, including referring to Texas Congressman Blake Farenthold as being “fat” and “so unattractive it’s unbelievable.”  After her uncharitable remarks about Congressman Farenthold’s appearance were made public, the fake Republican Senator from Maine issued a terse apology.
  • Speaking of fake Republicans, Sen. From The News Media John McCain made his way back onto the Senate floor despite having had surgery for a brain tumor last week.  There he made a rousing speech in which he blamed the lack of progress in the U.S. Senate on…wait for it…wait for it…talk radio.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?

Just another day in fake Republicans are everywhere America.

America’s Left Is Extremely Religious, Emphasis On “Extreme”

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Some Seattle-based social justice warrior named Frances S. Lee woke up over the weekend and realized his political ideology is no different than your basic religious cult, complete with sacred texts, religious dogma, church elders and strictures on speech and behavior that must not be violated.  Mr. Lee is asking to be excommunicated from this amazingly destructive, anti-American church.  Good for him.  The trouble is, for every awakened SJW like Mr. Lee, there are a hundred mind-numbed nitwits waiting to take his place.
  • By the way, as you read Mr. Lee’s piece, try substituting the words “Climate Change” every time you read “Social Justice”, and you will see that his piece could have otherwise been written word-for-word about the global Church of Climate Alarm.
  • Speaking of cults, John Sexton had an excellent piece at Hotair.com on Saturday, reminding us that the fake news media also functions in the very same way.  His piece, a remembrance of the 2008 “Journolist” scandal, in which dozens of leftwing activists posing as journalists were revealed to be coordinating daily talking points, narratives, strategies and targets for demonization, all in support of their fake God, Barack Obama, needs to be read by all, because though the “Journolist” daily email chains might have disappeared, all these leftist seditionists are still dominating the fake news media and the cultish behavior still dominates the fake news coverage.
  • All The Fake News That Fits, Part 86,452:  As if on cue, the NYTimes provides a wonderful example of how this religious cult operates, as it ran a story titled “Iran Dominates In Iraq After U.S. Hands The Country Over”.  Obviously the piece masquerades as an expose’ of the 15 year failed U.S. policy vis a vis Iraq following 911.  Amazingly, the writers of this piece managed somehow to roll out its 1,000-plus words without mentioning the name “Barack Obama” – who inherited a fairly stable situation and intentionally destroyed it in keeping with his leftist ideology – one single time.  If you want to know why I consistently point to the NYTimes as one of the fakest of all fake news outlets, this story is a prime example.
  • And A New False God Rises In The West To Fill The Obama Void:  Again, as if on cue, the NYPost reports that the Democrat Party, desperate to find someone who doesn’t require assisted living services to become their great new presidential hope, have now turned to  – guess who? – yet another freshman senator from a heavily blue state.  With Corey Booker having gone down in flames as simply unappealing to the masses, the Coastal Democrats now turn their eyes to a new annointee, Senator Kamala Harris of California.  In the estimation of Party leaders and their fake news media propaganda agents, Sen. Harris has literally got it all:  outspoken, good-looking, young-ish, a minority background, a woman, an excellent public speaker, and a person who can lie on cue without missing a beat.
  • It will piss off the Fake Indian From Massachusets and The Most Corrupt Woman In America to no end, but Senator Harris is obviously the new Chosen One for the Coastal Democrats.  In the coming months, expect to an undending series of newspaper and magazine articles praising Sen. Harris for her smarts, her toughness, her political skills, and yes, even laughingly for her “moderate”, “inclusive” political outlook, as the fake news media begins to condition the public at large to believe she is just the person to “bring the country together”, just as they began doing with Barack Obama starting in 2007.  This is what the Democrats and the fake news media do.

Just another weekend in leftwing religious cult America.

Fake News CNN In Full Meltdown Thanks To James O’Keefe

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

CNN found itself in full meltdown mode on Tuesday over its latest in a long line of fake news embarrassments, and a James O’Keefe “Project Veritas” video of one of its producers admitting the network fakes the news for ratings.  O’Keefe promises more videos are yet to come.

  • Despite the public pronouncements of CEO Jeff Zucker, all is not well at CNN, the fakest news outlet in the fake news universe.  Despite Mr. Zucker’s Monday claim that his network is “more trusted than ever”, the cable channel’s ratings are in full tank mode vs. its main competitors at Fox and MSNBC in ratings released on Monday.  CNN has just one daily program among the top 20 in that mix, and it comes in at #20.  It’s key to remember that those ratings reflect viewership for the week before CNN was forced to pull down and apologize for a fake story alleging collusion between a Trump advisor and Russia, and before Project Veritas released its video showing a senior producer at CNN admitting that the channel fakes the news in a quest for…wait for it…higher ratings!  Hey, Jeff, it isn’t working, dude.
  • Making matters worse for Zucker, White House spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders went off on CNN in her daily press briefing, calling the network and other outlets who have been faking the news over the last year “a disgrace to journalism”, among other things.  When a gum-chomping reporter for Playboy Magazine interrupted her answer to a question, she called his behavior “outrageous”. Which it was.  You go, girl!
  • But it gets even worse for the beleaguered Mr. Zucker.  O’Keefe announced on Twitter yesterday that he has not just one, but several more, even more revealing videos of CNN employees caught in rare moments of honesty, and he plans to trickle them out into the public domain in coming days, perhaps starting today.  Quick, somebody get me some popcorn!!!!
  • So what does it all mean?  Well, the travails at CNN are just one of many indicators out there right now that the worm has begun to turn in the Trump Administration’s favor.  If you look at those TV ratings, you see Fox News, after two months running in second place to MSNBC as the public began to think there might actually be something real in the whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy play invented by the Democrats and promoted by the fake news media, now back firmly in first place, where it had dominated for more than a decade.  You also have the late night TV ratings that were released on Tuesday in which Jimmy Fallon is suddenly besting the execrable, Trump-bashing Stephen Colbert, ending a two-month losing streak.  Then you have rank and file Democrats, in the wake of the humiliating loss by Pajama Boy in GA HD 6 last week, pounding on San Fran Nan, Chuck Schumer and the rest of their leadership to stop even talking about the Russia Collusion fantasy and start talking about real issues that people actually give a damn about.
  • All of these things and many more are indicators that the public has by and large realized that the Russia story is nothing but a huge hoax – as Ms. Sanders described it yesterday – and has grown so weary of hearing about it that they are starting to abandon support for any media outlet or Democrat who continues to focus on it.
  • Then you have Bob Mueller, who has done his former credibility enormous harm by going out and hiring a procession of Clinton-and-Obama-supporting lawyers to form up his team of “investigators”.  He has so tainted his own investigation at this point that even some Democrat members of congress and leftist talking heads have begun to express concern about it.  Unless he makes some additional hires that indicate he is at least trying to form up a balanced team, no one is going to take anything he finds seriously at the end of the day.
  • Finally, you have the fact that suddenly, it’s not just Trump and his people who find themselves the subject of congressional, FBI and Justice Department investigations. Over the last couple of weeks, the headlines have been sprinkled with announcements that investigators are now targeting Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, Loretta Lynch, John Podesta, Bernie Sanders and his wife Jane, Congressman John Conyers, even FBI interim Director Andrew McCabe, an Obama loyalist holdover.  You can expect the list of Democrats under investigation to grow substantially in coming weeks, especially as the investigations into Obama-era abuse of intelligence information get fully underway.
  • All of which places Zucker and CNN in even more of a bind, since they have so firmly established themselves as the propaganda arm of the national Democrat Party.  Would it surprise anyone if we soon discover that CNN, the network whose employee was caught passing debate questions to Hillary Clinton in advance, was also coordinating talking points and coverage with elements of the Democrat Party?  If you’re honest, the answer to that question is a firm “no.”  And that one-word answer perfectly encapsulates why CNN finds itself in full meltdown mode today.
  • Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people.

Just another day in melting-down CNN America.

That is all.

President Trump Prepares To End The Biggest Climate Scam Of All

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • That whooshing sound you hear is the air coming out of the biggest single scam in human history.:  Climate frauds everywhere spent all day Wednesday in a panic over news reports that President Trump has decided to pull the U.S. out of Barack Obama’s Paris Climate Accord, which is nothing more than just another socialist wealth redistribution scheme.  CBS News was so focused on misinforming its brainwashed viewers that it had its fake reporters and fake anchor refer to the scheme as a “treaty” no fewer than six times in just under 2 minutes of air time.  It’s not a treaty – Barack Hussein Obama committed our 330 million citizens to forking over about $3 trillion between now and 2030 purely via executive fiat.  Why?  Because he knew the U.S. Senate would never approve it.
  • My favorite Democrat/fake media talking point of the day was this:  “There 195 countries who have signed onto the Paris Climate Accords!!!!”  Well, hell, of course they are – they’re like pigs lined up at a trough that they expect to soon be filled with U.S. money.
  • Second favorite Democrat/fake media talking point of the day:  “If Trump pulls out of Paris, that means we are leaving China and India in charge of cleaning up the environment!!!!!”  This unfortunate point came on the same day that India announced its plan to build no fewer than 175 new coal-fired power plants in the next few years, adding to the the reality that China has been opening about one new coal-fired plant each week for the last decade.  That’s what liberals refer to as climate “leadership”.
  • Here’s reality about Paris:  The UN itself admits that, if every country held to its commitments under the Accord (thus far, only the U.S. has been doing so), it would have the impact of lowering global temperatures – according to notoriously inaccurate climate computer models – just 2/10ths of 1 degree over the next 85 years.  In other words, no real measurable impact at all.  The UN says exactly this in its own reports.  Paris is just another Obama-era Climate fraud, one of thousands, and it is well past time for President Trump to keep his campaign promise and remove the U.S. from this farce.
  • Speaking of our former Climate Fraud-in-Chief, he and his wife Michelle announced that they have managed somehow to parlay his eight years of making $400,000 per year into being able to purchase a home in Washington DC for ….wait for it…$8.2 million.  That’s some fabulous investing going on right there.
  • He must have been reading my stuff.:  Liberal heads really exploded in earnest on Wednesday when former NY City Mayor Michael Bloomberg told an audience that he thinks Donald Trump has “about a 55 percent chance of being re-elected in 2020.”  I think his percentage is way low, but am glad he agrees with me.
  • Fakenews outlet Yahoo News reports that there is a new wave going on of mountain climbers issuing fake claims of having scaled Mount Everest.  Upon reading that story, every fake reporter, fake anchor and fake editor working at every major news outlet in to the United States began making plans to travel to Tibet and get in on the scam.
  • This is what the Democrats refer to as their Youth Movement.:  Don’t look now, but crazy ol’ Joe Biden has formed a PAC and is making plans to run for President in 2020, when he will be 78 years old, where he will likely face off against The Most Corrupt Woman In America, who will be 74, and Bernie Sanders, who will be pushing 80.  California Governor Jerry Brown, who would also be pushing 80 in 2020, is also making preliminary plans to run.  After they lose to Trump, maybe they can all move in together in a nice assisted living community near Coral Gables.

Just another day in dying Climate Fraud America.

That is all.
