The World Keeps Closing in on the Deep State Cabal

  • Oprah’s going to regret ever having given that speech. – Harvey Weinstein’s best pal for 20 years now finds herself getting just a small taste of what her carefully-constructed facade will be subjected to if she really does attempt to mount a run for the presidency.  She has now been irrevocably exposed as one of Weinstein’s closest confidants over the last two decades, her history of pushing conspiracies on her TV show is being revisited, her promotion of a facial cream made partially from babies’ foreskins is being revisited, and even her oft-told back story of having grown up in abject squalor is being challenged by people who knew her during her childhood.
  • Even the singer Seal lashed out at her on Wednesday, pointing out the likelihood that she knew about Weinstein’s serial abuse of women for years and did nothing about it, saying she’s been “part of the problem for years”.  This is just a small, small taste of what’s to come, Oprah.  It’s not something that giving away gift bags or even cars to everybody will stop.  You sure you want to be president?
  • Speaking of Harvey Weinstein, the monster himself got punched out Tuesday night by a fellow diner at a swanky joint in Scottsdale, AZ.  Nobody on the face of the earth felt bad for him, except maybe Oprah and Meryl Streep.
  • Sen. Dianne “Sneaky” Feinstein, now concerned that she may have violated laws by releasing the transcript of closed testimony by Fusion GPS Founder Glenn Simpson, is now blaming a “bad cold” for slowing her already puny mental faculties as the reason she made that decision.  That hilariously lame and obviously false rationalization comes after she let slip in an answer to a reporter that she “was pressured” by some unnamed entity to make the unilateral decision to put the transcript out in public over the wishes of Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley.  Feinstein later said she “misspoke” when she said that, but of course, Democrats always “misspeak” whenever the truth accidentally escapes their lips.
  • The most likely truth here, of course, is that Sen. Feinstein released Simpson’s testimony in order to provide a head’s up to the various FBI and DOJ participants in the Deep State cabal, like Peter Strzok, Bruce Ohr, Lisa Page, Bill Priestap, James Baker, Andrew McCabe and others who will be offering testimony before various congressional committees in the coming days.  Given that the fake Trump Dossier compiled by Fusion GPS will be a topic of questioning in these hearings, the Democrats obviously want all these skunks and snakes to be able to properly get their stories straight.  Sneaky Dianne’s act of blatant sedition here is just one more reason why our Sleepy Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, needs to get off his marijuana-obsessed butt and appoint another special counsel to investigate the Cabal’s activities.
  • As Fox News reported on Tuesday, the members of the House Intelligence Committee got their long-sought access to all FBI/DOJ documents related to their use of the Trump Dossier.  Last Friday, every committee member was allowed to view the documents and take notes, which is standard procedure with highly classified information such as this.  Given that this included Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff, and none of the information contained in those documents has been leaked to CNN as we sit here six days later, we can assume the documents do not contain good news for the Democrats.  Rep. Schiff generally works on a much quicker time frame than this.
  • Speaking of collusion with the Russians, where in the world is Hillary Clinton?  Here we are, 11 days into the new year, and we have yet to hear a single public utterance from the Pantsuit Princess.  Indeed, if you do a Google news search on her name, the only stories you get back about her, other than casual mentions by third parties, are reports on the fire that broke out at her home in Chappaqua, New York on Jan. 3, and the fact that the Justice Department has opened an investigation into the Uranium One scandal, and re-opened its investigation into the Clinton Crime Family Fake Foundation.
  • It has been literally decades since the Fainting Felon went 11 days without making a public appearance.  With the DOJ Inspector General’s office expected to issue its report on its internal investigation as soon as next week, perhaps we should focus future Google searches on sightings of the Coughing Crook and her hubby Bill “vacationing” in non-extradition countries.
  • But hey, maybe she’s just been suffering from a “bad cold,” too.  It seems to be going around in Democrat circles these days.  That tends to happen when the world starts finally closing in around you.

Just another day in it’s a nasty cold season for Democrats America.

That is all.

The Associated Press Fakes Up the Most Absurd Trump “Scandal” Yet

  • Tired of all this winning yet?  Part I – After a decade of chronic declines, Christmas season retail sales in the United States jumped up by $33 billion this year.  Maybe having a President who actually calls the season by its proper name has something to do with that.
  • Tired of all this winning yet?  Part II – If you thought that UN Ambassador Nikki Haley’s admonitions to the collection of grifters, miscreants, perverts and thieves who make up the general assembly of the United Nations last week amounted to nothing but hot air, think again.  Ambassador Haley gave Americans an early Christmas present on Christmas eve by announcing that she had negotiated a real, true reduction of $285 million in the UN’s general budget for FY 2018-19.  “The inefficiency and overspending of the United Nations are well known,” Haley said. “We will no longer let the generosity of the American people be taken advantage of or remain unchecked.”  It isn’t enough – it can never be enough until the UN is eliminated from existence – but it is a start.
  • A Los Angeles psychotic, er, psychologist took credit for delivering a box of manure to the home of Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin on Saturday, telling a fake reporter that what he did was “like Jesus.”  Yes, because we all remember that story about how Jesus divided up that single box of manure to feed hundreds of people, or something.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.
  • Someone at the Justice Department leaked out the news over the weekend that FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, one of the key players in the Deep State cabal, is planning to retire in a few months when he becomes eligible for retirement benefits.  So, this guy, who apparently was a key cog in a coordinated effort at the FBI and DOJ to first deny Trump the presidency, and then to work to undermine a sitting president after he took office, is planning to just quietly slink away along about March and live off the largesse of taxpayers for the remainder of his life.
  • Not surprisingly at all, President Trump had a little problem with this plan, tweeting the following on Saturday:  “How can FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, the man in charge, along with leakin’ James Comey, of the Phony Hillary Clinton investigation (including her 33,000 illegally deleted emails) be given $700,000 for wife’s campaign by Clinton Puppets during investigation?”, and “FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is racing the clock to retire with full benefits. 90 days to go?!!!”  Oh, it’s going to be so much fun watching this one play out in 2018.
  • The Associated Press has decided that the fact that President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three words) has yet to hold a formal state dinner is some sort of scandal.  “Not since Calvin Coolidge in the 1920s has a president ended his first year in office without hosting a foreign leader for a state visit,” the article declares.
  • One supposes that the AP decided to belch out this piece of rank nitwittery at the end of the year because it has run out of actual, real failings to point to regarding the Trump presidency.  After all, they can’t point to the whole “no major legislative achievements” canard anymore with the passage of the tax bill.  They can’t point to his not getting anything real done since he’s rescinded about 90% of the Obama “legacy” at this point.  They can’t keep focusing on the “Russia collusion” issue, given that it has not only been shown to be a pure fantasy concocted by the Clinton Campaign and the DNC, but has also revealed massive wrongdoing by a bunch of Deep State Obama stooges at the FBI and DOJ.  So, in casting about for something new on which to focus their desperate efforts to demean this presidency, they land on state dinners.
  • Let’s be honest here:  The one and only reason why this or any other fake reporter for any of the fake news media outlets wants President Trump to hold a state dinner is so that they can find ways to criticize him for doing so.  Or criticize the shoe choices of First Lady Melania Trump.  Or criticize the seating choices of various members of the visiting country’s diplomatic corps.  Or harp about the fact that he gave Premier X a state dinner before offering one Prime Minister Y.  Or criticize any breaches in “protocol” that might occur.  Or go berserk over some random tweet about the dinner the President would send out the following morning.
  • Here’s a thought:  How about President Trump start the whole state dinner thing by first giving one for Russian President Vladimir Putin?  He could invite Robert Mueller, Andrew McCabe, James Comey, Rod Rosenstein, James Baker, Bruce Ohr, Nellie Ohr, Peter Strzok and Sally Yates to sit at the head table with Putin and himself.  That should make for lively conversation, and give the ridiculous hens at the AP something real to cluck about.
Just another day in Fake News Media America.
That is all.

The Week In Review: All This Winning Never Gets Old

Here is where the never-ending campaign stands two days before Christmas, 2017:

  • New home sales shot up by 17.5% in November, the largest month-over-month gain in 25 years.  Homebuyers didn’t get that Democrat/media-pushed message that the Trump tax cuts were going to kill everyone.
  • The manufacturing growth index kept by the Philadelphia Branch of the Federal Reserve rose 4% in November.  All the “experts” had projected a 1% drop. Manufacturers also failed to get the Democrat/media fake message.  So much for experts.
  • After doing a 25 minute press availability following the signing of his tax bill, President Trump then boarded his helicopter to head out for a Christmas vacation in Florida.  In doing so, he technically skipped the “traditional” year-end press conference.  CNN’s Jim Acosta wet his baby diapers all over Twitter about that, which has also become something of a tradition.  Of course, neither Acosta nor any other member of the Whiny White House press corps ever whined when Barack Obama also skipped this year-end fake “tradition.”  Shocking, I know.
  • Univision Anchorman Jorge Ramos says he is “having the worst time of my life” in the first year of the Trump Administration.  Um, is that a problem?
  • Las Vegas-based Special Agent Aaron Rouse brought even more disgrace on the FBI than it has already suffered the last few months – something no one had thought was even possible at this point – by announcing his agency would not release its findings on September’s Las Vegas massacre until at least a year had passed after the event.  Agent Rouse called that standard operating procedure for his agency.  Most real Americans think of it more as incompetence and outright mendacity.
  • The fake news media refuses to report it, but ISIS has almost been wiped from the face of the earth, thanks to the Trump Administration military engagement policies.  Just another anti-American legacy of Barack Obama being swept away.
  • UN Ambassador Nikki Haley performed a righteous slap-down of the UN General Assembly on Thursday, as reported in yesterday’s Campaign Update.  One result of her tough message to that collection of miscreants, perverts, grifters and thieves came later in the day, as the UN Security Council, including traditional holdouts Russia and China, unanimously approved a set of new sanctions on North Korea.  Leadership matters.
  • The Deep State Cabal within the DOJ/FBI continues to be marginalized and publicly exposed.  This week included two congressional committees exposing FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe during intense questioning.  It also included the reassignment of FBI General Counsel James Baker after it was revealed he has personal ties to ex-Mother Jones Editor David Corn, who was the first fake reporter to publicly use the fake Trump Dossier.
  • Hey!  Somebody even woke up our sleepy Attorney General, Jeff Sessions!  Late in the week, Sessions ordered not one, but two major new DOJ reviews:  1) A review of the Obama DOJ’s fake “investigation” into the Uranium One scandal, and 2) A preliminary review of allegations that high officials in the Obama Administration prevented prosecution of Hezbollah terrorists running drugs into the United States in order to prop up the horrific deal they wanted to make with Iran.  Both reviews are being conducted with an eye towards the possible appointment of a special counsel to fully investigate.
  • And of course, congressional Republicans finally, at long last kept a major promise to the American people, passing a bill that implements the first major reform of the U.S. personal and corporate income tax systems in 30 years.  In immediate reaction, dozens of major U.S. corporations announced the awarding of special bonuses to tens of thousands of workers, and other major new investments in the U.S. economy thanks directly to their new, lower tax rate.
  • Also in direct response, a bunch of NeverTrump losers whined about so many congressional Republicans suddenly figuring out that it’s a good idea to jump onto the Trump Train while they still can.

That, friends, is winning.  So, so, soooooooooooooo much winning!

Just another day in All This Winning Never Gets Old America.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

That is all.

President Donald Trump – What Real Leadership Looks Like

  • Yesterday’s Campaign Update speculated that, since no details of Andrew McCabe’s Tuesday testimony before the House Intelligence Committee had leaked to CNN, that meant that either CA Democrat Adam “Bugeyes” Schiff had missed the hearing or McCabe’s testimony was not helpful at all of the Democrats.  Based on last night’s revelations on Fox News, it seems the latter was the case, as McCabe apparently gave testimony that was incomplete, misleading, and that conflicted previous testimony offered by himself and other witnesses.
  • That ain’t good, and Republican members of the committee came out of the hearing promising to issue a raft of subpoenas targeting Bruce Ohr, Nellie Ohr, Peter Strzok and anyone else they can think of who is facilitating the DOJ/FBI stonewalling of this and other congressional committees.  The subpoenas will likely go out next week, so they will make nice New Year’s gifts for all the Deep State thugs still ensconced in the Hoover Building.
  • While San Fran Nan was out declaring the Republican tax bill to be “cruel,” “greedy,” and accusing Republicans of “killing Tiny Tim” at Christmastime, senior management at companies like AT&T, Wells Fargo, Comcast and Boeing were announcing that they would award special Christmas bonuses to tens of thousands of employees now that their massive tax burdens will be reduced.  Of course, Pelosi and her fellow grasping Democrats do consider such bonuses to be cruel and greedy, since they mean that they don’t get to take that money from those workers and decide to redistribute it to people who are more likely to vote for Democrats.  So it all makes sense from a very perverted point of view.
  • The fake news media of course continued to play its never-ending role as the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party in its blatant lying about this bill.  A great example came on NBC’s Today Show, where fake host Savanna Guthrie, in questioning Speaker Paul Ryan about the GOP’s belief that the bill would create jobs and new business investment, asked him “are you living in a fantasy world?”  Mind you, this is a woman who has, for the last 20 years or so, helped perpetuate a Today Show fantasy world in which Matt Lauer was just a wonderful family man who wasn’t serially abusing women behind the locked door to his office.  Yeah, THAT Savanna Guthrie.
  • Shortly after Guthrie demonstrated her utter economic ignorance by asking that question, AT&T announced that, directly thanks to the passage of the tax bill, it was moving on a plan that would increase its investment in the U.S. economy by more than $1 billion in 2018 alone.
  • Meanwhile, President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three words) took a victory lap at the White House along with a large group of senators and representatives who played roles in getting the bill over the finish line.  And who could blame him?  The man has worked tirelessly to find a way to get to a win on what will be remembered as the big legislative achievement of his first year in office.
  • And make no mistake about this reality:  Donald Trump is the only one of the initial 17 candidates who sought the GOP presidential nomination in 2016 who could have gotten this bill done.  Why?  Because he is the only one of those 17 men who could not care less what the fake news media says or thinks about him.  Like Ronald Reagan in 1981, only a Republican President who doesn’t give a damn about his short-term personal popularity can get these very big pieces of legislation with long-lasting impacts through a congress filled with weak-kneed politicians who spend every waking hour living in fear of negative media coverage.
  • It is no accident that, of those 17 original GOP candidates, Donald Trump was the only one who was not a captive to a huge staff of professional talking-points monkeys and campaign advisers.  It is no accident that, when those 17 candidates were arrayed on a debate stage and started answering questions from biased moderators, Donald Trump’s answers stood out like a sore thumb.  Yes, those answers sometimes made even me cringe, but one thing was obvious about them:  While all the others were reciting memorized talking points that had been written by others, Donald Trump was telling America what he really believes.  This simple reality, more than all other factors combined, is why Donald Trump is President today.
  • That simple reality, that refusal to be held hostage to conventional wisdom or to buy into the long-held fantasies pushed out by the DC Swamp and its propaganda agents like Savannah Guthrie, is also why Donald Trump is without doubt the most effective – and most demonized – President in modern U.S. history, perhaps ever.  The grand scope and scale of what he has accomplished during his first year in office – The Campaign Update will go through all of this in great detail next week – is truly stunning.
  • In one short year, the disgraceful, anti-American legacy of Barack Obama has almost completely been wiped from the books.  Only a President who cares nothing about his short-term public approval ratings could have achieved what Trump has achieved.   This is leadership of a type we have never witnessed in the presidency.
  • Trump still has a long way to go to get the DC Swamp completely drained, but a better start in one short year is difficult to imagine.

Just another day in This is What Leadership Looks Like America.

That is all.

Republicans Should Make The Democrats’ Insane Tax Bill Rhetoric Come Back To Haunt Them

  • FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe actually showed up for his scheduled testimony before the House Intelligence Committee Tuesday, against all odds.  He was questioned for 8 hours by committee members, and in what has to rank as one of the great upsets in U.S. political history, none of that testimony has been leaked to CNN, the NYTimes or the WaPo as of this writing.  That likely either means that California Rep. Adam “Bugeyes” Schiff either did not attend the hearing, or that Agent McCabe’s testimony was decidedly unfavorable to the Democrats.
  • Never forget that this is what the Democrat Party wants to create in your town – The French newspaper LeMond reported over the weekend that the mayors of 7 major cities in that country sent a letter to French President Macron begging him to step in to stop the flow of new immigrants into the country.  The mayors said that they are “backed up against a wall” by the flood of “several thousand” new refugees per month, which the mayors say is causing a social emergency. Man, no one could have seen that coming, right?  Oh, wait…
  • The certifiable lunatic Rosie O’Donnell went onto her Twitter account to offer outright bribes of $2 million each to Republican Senators Susan Collins and Jeff Flake if they would cast “no” votes on the GOP tax bill Tuesday night.  Unless someone can show why an offer of a bribe to a politician via Twitter is substantively different than doing so face to face, it is hard to understand how Rosie would survive this day without being hand-cuffed and perp-walked to the nearest holding facility for booking.
  • Speaking of Susan Collins, the fakest of all the fake Republicans in the U.S. Senate went off on reporters on Tuesday for what she described as their “unbelievably sexist” coverage of her posturing on the tax bill.  “They’ve ignored everything that I’ve gotten, and there have been stories after stories about how I’ve been duped,” she said. “How are you duped when all of your amendments get accepted? And when the majority leader — and I confirmed it again today with him — will be offering the two insurance bills that I care about as well as the provision waiving the automatic cut in Medicare that could be triggered by this bill?”
  • Collins went on to say that “It’s been extremely discouraging to see the press coverage on this given the significant impact that I’ve had on this bill.”  So, after 20 years in the Senate, it appears that Sen. Collins still hasn’t figured out that the collection of Democrats with press passes that make up the Capitol Hill press corps will always treat her with a double standard for the simple fact that she is a Republican.  That’s how it has always been, and is how it will always remain.  There is no mystery here at all, so why be outraged?
  • And speaking of outrage, well, there was the surreal hyperbolic wailing that went on among the Democrats on the floor of the House and in the well of the Senate as the tax bill came up for a vote on Tuesday.  San Fran Nan called it “the worst bill in American history,” and the Democrat rhetoric went downhill from there, with various members going to their Thesaurus to pull out words like “sham”, “scam”, “theft”, “robbery”, “atrocity”, “criminal”, even a “crime against humanity.”  It was all really sort of breathtaking to watch.
  • Think about it:  This is the rhetoric that Democrats use to describe a bill that will let literally every working person in America keep more of his or her hard-earned money, rather than sending to the government so it can be largely pissed away.  Hopefully, some enterprising young GOP campaign professionals are archiving all those intemperate statements made by the Democrats yesterday, preserving them for use in Republican ads for the 2018 mid-terms.
  • House Minority Whip Stenny Hoyer, after slamming the bill on the House floor, then had the nerve to appear on Fox News and tell Bret Baier that “We’re in favor of ‘responsible’ tax cuts.”  That word ‘responsible’, in Democrat lingo, means ‘tax cuts that aren’t really cuts’, i.e., tax cuts that give money to one class of people (likely Democrat voters) while taking money from another class of people (likely Republican voters).
  • Which is no surprise given that the Democrat Party’s entire operational model for the last century has been based on never-ending efforts to divide America along class lines.  From creating the Ku Klux Klan to Roosevelt’s New Deal to Johnson’s Great Society to Obama’s Reinventing America, every major act taken by the Democrat Party for 100 years has been designed to foment class hatred and envy.
  • Yesterday’s insane reaction to a bill that lowers tax rates for literally every taxpayer and will allow every working American to keep more of their own money is no surprise from the Democrats – it’s simply the latest manifestation of the Party’s sole reason for existence.  That is a reality that all thinking Americans should never, ever forget.

Just another day in Democrat Perpetual Outrage America.

That is all.

Today’s The Day The Trump Tax Cuts Save The GOP Congress, If Only Congress Will Let Them

  • Hey, have you ever wondered whatever happened to that lovely, delightful Jill Stein?  You remember her, don’t you?  That “Green” Party candidate who received some rounding error-level number of votes in last year’s presidential election, and then held the country hostage for a month while demanding recounts in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin?  Oh, yeah, THAT Jill Stein? Isn’t she a pistol?
  • Well, it turns out she is alive and sort of well, but not completely well, because the Washington Post is reporting today that she is now under investigation by the Robert Mueller Witch Hunt, er, coup d’etat, er, Special Counsel operation.  Why?  Well, I don’t really care.  I just love the poetic justice involved here.  You go, Bob.  You’ve finally stumbled across your witch.
  • Speaking of Witch Hunts, a couple dozen protesters who don’t want their taxes cut found themselves hunting around Capitol Hill for Nancy Pelosi Monday afternoon, when the House Minority Leader failed to show up for their sparsely attended event at which they planned to express their righteous outrage at having to give less money to the federal government.  Pelosi had agreed to attend the event when she was told that hundreds of her fellow leftist nitwits were going to show up for it, but when that crowd failed to materialize, well, San Fran Nan flew the coop.  No word whether or not she was riding a broom when she did.
  • Justice Department Lawyer Bruce Ohr, recently demoted when it was revealed that he held regular meetings with the sleazy operatives of the Fusion GPS firm – where his wife was employed – during last year’s presidential campaign, had his scheduled testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee postponed until later this week.  Committee members rescheduled his appearance after they received a new tranche of long-withheld documents from the Justice Department earlier in the day, and they wanted time to review those documents before hearing from Mr. Ohr.
  • Another cog in the DOJ Deep State cabal, Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, is scheduled to testify later today before the House Intelligence Committee, in what is supposed to be a closed-door session.  It will be interesting to see if McCabe turns up, and how long it takes California Democrat Adam Schiff or some other Democrat to leak the substance of the hearing to CNN if he does.
  • Meanwhile, today is Tax Cut Day in the United States Congress.  Yes, friends, the Republican majorities in both houses of congress, who have been making unfulfilled promises to you for eight long years, are finally, at long last, on the verge of actually keeping one of them!  Yay!
  • The clincher for getting this largest tax cut in American history sent to the President’s desk appeared to come late Monday when the fakest fake Republican in the Senate, Maine Senator Susan Collins, announced that she would vote ‘yes’ on the bill.  Once it became clear that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has the critical mass of needed votes, Senator From the News Media John McCain fled town so he wouldn’t be a part of a resounding success for President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three words).
  • In all seriousness, this is life or death for the Republican Party’s congressional future.  Get it done, and you have a chance to hold your majorities in both houses of congress in the 2018 mid-term elections, maybe even increase your Senate advantage.  Fail, and you have no chance.  Literally no chance at all – 2018 would become an inevitable wave election favoring the Democrats if this vote fails.
  • Because the fake news media has demonized the bill with talking points coordinated with the Democrat Party – its standard procedure in such matters – the bill does not currently poll well.  But wait until February, when the new tax withholding tables go into effect, and literally every working American sees that his or her paycheck has increased dramatically, and those polls will turn right around.
  • Once that happens, you’ll see the same thing start happening to those “generic congressional preference” polls, which lately have shown the Democrats with a 7-10 point advantage.  The economy is already booming, with the New York Fed now projecting 4% economic growth for the 4th quarter.  More and more Americans are going back to work every day now, and if they also see they are taking home more of their hard-earned money thanks to a bill that every Democrat opposed, the complexion for the 2018 mid-terms will turn around on a dime.
  • Today’s vote is one of the most crucial votes in the history of the GOP.  No wonder John McCain wants no part of it, and we aren’t hearing a peep of support from Mitt Romney or George W. Bush.  That tells you all you need to know about the quality of “conservatives” the Republican Party had been nominating for the presidency before Donald Trump came along.

Just another day in Donald Trump’s America.

That is all.

Lisa Bloom Becomes A Strong Contender For The Title of Worst Person In The World

  • GOP Senators Marco Rubio and Bob Corker finally decided to stop their grandstanding and do the right thing on Friday, announcing they plan to vote in favor of the final tax bill reported out by the House/Senate Conference Committee.  With John McCain in the hospital and unlikely to be present to vote when the bill is brought to the floor next Tuesday, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell needed at least one of the two holdouts in order to get to 50 votes.  Thus, unless something changes over the weekend, the GOP Senate Majority will finally, at long last, keep one promise its members have made to the American people.  How about that.
  • Congressional Democrat leaders of course continued their disgracefully false and inflammatory criticisms of the bill, with San Fran Nan leading the pack, calling it “daylight robbery.  And with every iteration, the GOP tax scam becomes even more cowardly, outrageous, dishonest, brazen theft from middle-class families, giving money from them to the richest people in our country and to corporations. It’s a monumental con job.”
  • In other words, everything the Republicans do is going to kill everybody:  Repealing Obamacare was going to kill everybody; pulling the U.S. out of the fraudulent Paris Climate Accords was going to kill everybody; building the Dakota Access and Keystone XL pipelines is going to kill everybody; and now the tax bill is going to kill everybody.  If nothing else, the Democrats are at least consistent in their rank idiocy.
  • Meanwhile, President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three words), who has been extremely critical of the incredibly corrupt leadership at the FBI, went to speak at a ceremony for Quantico graduates.  When Attorney General Jeff “Sleepy” Sessions introduced him by saying “A few days ago, we were assembled in this auditorium and the announcement was made you would be attending and this room erupted with energy,” the assembled cadets and FBI field agents erupted with a rousing standing ovation.  No doubt FBI Super Duper Agent Peter Strzok and his mistress exchanged texts expressing their disapproval, and FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe became quite sweaty.  Then again, he always seems to be quite sweaty.
  • Speaking of super duper people, how about that Lisa Bloom, huh?  What a gal, amiright?  Man, has she been in the news a lot lately.  First, she agrees to represent the detestable Harvey Weinstein and gets caught peddling damaging information on accuser Rose McGowan, not to mention allegations that she and Weinstein were offering bribes to some of his victims to stay quiet.
  • As if that wasn’t bad enough, on Friday Mizz Bloom was revealed to have been offering bribes…er, gobs of money during the 2016 election campaign to women if they would accuse then-candidate Donald Trump of sexual harassment.  Writing for The Hill, John Solomon and Alison Span – two of the handful of real, actual journalists still working in the national media today – report that one woman was repeatedly hounded by Mizz Bloom to come forward, with the money being offered to her rising from an initial $5,000 to a fairly amazing $750,000 before the pesky daughter of notorious hack Gloria Allred was finally convinced to just go away.   At one point, this woman told the reporters that Bloom flew all the way across the country to pester her while she was actually in the hospital.  My goodness.
  • Making this episode even more egregious, Bloom’s scam – which apparently included at least four potential accusers of Trump – involved securing the payola money from big Democrat donors, and then… wait for it…wait for it…TAKING A CUT FOR HERSELF!  Solomon and Span report that Bloom “acknowledged a standard part of her contracts required women to pay her commissions as high as 33 percent if she sold their stories to media outlets.” I swear I don’t make this stuff up – who could?
  • Bloom justified her exhorbitant cut by telling the reporters that “As a private law firm we have significant payroll, rent, taxes, insurance and other expenses every week, so an arrangement where we might receive some compensation to defray our costs seems reasonable to us and is agreed to by our clients.”  Holy cow.  But then, why would we expect anything else from the daughter of Gloria Allred?  This hot mess apple obviously did not fall far from the hot mess tree.
  • At this point, it is fair to say that Lisa Bloom has become a serious challenger to Cecile Richards for the title of Worst Person In The World.  Kim Jong Un is highly jealous.

Just another day in Hot Mess America.

That is all.

The Road Goes On Forever And The Fake News Never Ends

  • The road goes on forever, and the fake news never ends (with apologies to the great Robert Earl Keen) – After 10,000 texts between FBI Agent Peter Strzok  and his lover, Justice Dept. lawyer Lisa Page, were made public, the three national broadcast networks very predictably disgraced themselves with their fake coverage of the matter.  But then, it would have been actual news had they behaved otherwise, and these networks are not in the business of making or covering real news anymore.
  • None of the networks mentioned the two federal employees were engaged in an extra-marital affair, and none mentioned the most disturbing message of all, the one Strzok sent to Page reading, “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office – that there’s no way he [Trump]  gets elected – but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40…”
  • Wait, what?  The “Andy” to whom they’re referring is obviously FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, but what is this “insurance policy” the two apparently discussed with McCabe, a policy that would presumably undermine Trump should he ultimately win the election?  No one at any of the three networks had the curiosity to ask, much less report on that key question.
  • Nor did any of the networks cover the later exchange that begins with Page texting, “maybe you’re meant to stay where you are because you’re meant to protect the country from that menace,” to which Strzok – who apparently thinks he is the FBI’s version of Batman – replies, “I can protect our country at many levels”, presumably referring to whatever secret “insurance policy” had been hatched in the office of Andrew McCabe.
  • All of which probably adds up to the real reason why McCabe suddenly decided to cancel his long-scheduled Tuesday appearance before the House Judiciary Committee at the last minute – he may need time to coordinate with the DNC and the fake media on a set of talking points about this “insurance policy”.
  • But the 20 million or so Americans who for some inexplicable reason still get their “news” from ABC, NBC and CBS all went to bed blissfully unaware of any of this, which, of course, was the networks’ collective goal.
  • Elsewhere, fake host Anderson Cooper and the PR hacks at CNN had to scramble to come up with an explanation for a highly-inflammatory tweet that was sent out from Cooper’s Twitter feed early Wednesday morning.  After President Donald Trump tweeted that “The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily), is that I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election. I was right!”, the Cooper account quickly came back with  “Oh Really? You endorsed him you tool! Pathetic loser.”
  • Cooper then went into panic mode, first tweeting that he  “just woke up to find out someone gained access to my twitter account. i have not sent a tweet in days or replied to any tweets. We are looking into how this happened.”
  • CNN officials, already seeing what little credibility they had remaining – which, let’s face it, wasn’t much – swirling down the Anderson Cooper toilet, later issued an absurd explanation that said that “His assistant inadvertently left his phone unlocked and unattended at the gym early this morning, and someone took his phone and sent the tweet.”  Which of course is ridiculously and hilariously false.
  • Either Cooper sent the tweet or his assistant sent it in a fit of pique.  That’s the only rational scenario that would explain this.  But rather than just admit that, apologize for the incident, and move on, CNN wants you to believe that some random guy at the assistant’s “gym” picked up the phone, somehow realized he could shoot a tweet from Cooper’s Twitter account, paged through the news to figure out what he wanted to tweet about, and then sent that inflammatory tweet, all while the assistant was working out or whatever he was doing at his “gym.”
  • The main thing this proves is that whomever it was at CNN that came up with this cock and bull story has no future whatsoever writing scripts for James Bond movies.

Just another day in the fake news never ends America.

That is all.

That Sad Moment When You Realize The FBI Is As Fake As The Fake News Media

  • I want to believe in the FBI.  Hell, who doesn’t?  Who doesn’t want to believe that our nation’s highest federal law enforcement agency is a stand-up deal, that we can trust the agency and its leaders to be honest and do the right thing?  Of course we all hope that is the case.  Which is why it is so distressing this morning to learn that the FBI’s stonewalling of multiple court orders and congressional committees not only continues, but has in fact escalated.
  • Late on Monday, we learned that the Deputy Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe, had suddenly and without real explanation cancelled his long-scheduled appearance to testify before the House  Intelligence Committee today.  There was no immediate response from anyone on the Committee, but Fox News reporter Chad Pergram tweeted Monday night that “congressional sources” told him that a subpoena would likely be issued to try to compel his appearance.  That’s fairly ironic, since it took a threatened subpoena in early November to convince McCabe to agree to testify in the first place.
  • Pergram further reported that his sources believe McCabe cancelled his appearance due to  a concern that he would be questioned about Justice Department muckety-muck Bruce Ohr and his wife Nellie, who we also learned on Monday worked for Fusion GPS during the 2016 campaign.  Ohr, of course, was recently “reassigned”, i.e., marginalized within the DOJ when it was learned that he held meetings with Fusion GPS – the firm that was hired by the Clinton Campaign and the DNC to collude with Russian officials to compile the fake Trump Dossier – throughout the 2016 election campaign.
  • So, because he was “concerned” that he might be forced to answer questions he obviously does not want to answer, McCabe apparently chose what has become FBI standard policy in 2017, which is to join the agency’s ever-growing stonewalling of any testimony or records production that might reveal the truth about what senior officials at the FBI and the DOJ were up to during the 2016 election cycle.
  • A DOJ spokesman is making the rounds of the TV morning shows claiming it’s all just an innocent “scheduling error,” but that’s just another obvious dodge.  How is any American supposed to have confidence in a “law-enforcement” agency whose obvious working policy is to blatantly and repeatedly stonewall efforts by others to discover if laws were violated?  It’s an absurd expectation that will only be complied with by those who have been brainwashed to believe anything their government tells them to believe.
  • Asking Americans to do that is no different than the hilariously absurd comment by Atlantic Editor David Frum on Sunday that “mistakes are precisely the reason people should trust the media…They get partial pieces of the truth. So in the process there are going to be overshoots and undershoots.”
  • Frum’s idiotic remarks would have some level of validity if there were ever any “undershoots.”  But what we see from our fake national news media where President Trump and his Administration is concerned is a constant stream of laughable “overshoots”, false reports that always, without exception, cast a negative light on the President.
  • Think about it:  over the past 2-1/2 years we have seen dozens, if not hundreds, of instances in which a fake reporter from a fake media outlet like the NYTimes, the WaPo, CNN, and NBC rushes to get out a “bombshell” report that is then repeated throughout the entirety of the fake media as “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump”, only to have said the fake media outlet who filed the initial report have to retract or “correct” it because it turned out to be entirely false.  We saw three such instances last week alone, and pretty much no week has gone by during 2017 in which we have not seen at least one example of this pattern taking place.
  • Yet, you would be at great pains to produce a single example over the last 30 months in which the fake news media made, in Frum’s parlance, a “mistake” that was false in a way that worked to the President’s benefit.
  • Here’s a clue for David Frum:  when a long series of events flow in only one direction, those events are not “mistakes”;  rather, they are the norm.
  • When it comes to the FBI or the fake news media, no American can trust them anymore.  The biggest “mistake” anyone can make is to try to defend their institutionalized behavior.

Just another day in fake FBI America.

That is all.
