Fake News, Fake Republicans and Real, Live Snowflakes – Merry Resistmas, America!

  • Now we know why his approval rating in Arizona is 11%. – Hey, remember when Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake used to pretend to be a Republican, just like his fellow Senator, John McCain?  Yeah, those were good times, but they’re over now.  On Tuesday, Flake wrote a check to ultra-liberal Democrat Doug Jones, who is running against the very weird Roy Moore for the senate seat in Alabama.  Embarrassingly, Flake’s check to Jones, which he made sure to trumpet all over the social media space, was for a paltry $100, meaning he’s not only rankly dishonest, he’s also a skinflint.  But hey, liberals are always far more generous giving away other people’s money than contributing their own, right?
  • Hey, all you SJWs, snowflakes and pussy hat wearers, if you lack a tree-topper for your “holiday” tree this year, a mail-order company can supply you one of your favorite “inspiring woman”, so long as your favorite “inspiring woman” is either Beyonce’, Serena Williams or Hillary Clinton!  I swear I don’t make this stuff up: 
  •  
  • Our young people seem to suffer from a severe lack of self-awareness. – The UK Telegraph carried a piece yesterday titled, “Don’t call us snowflakes – it damages our mental health, say young people”.  I kid you not, it’s a serious piece.  Note to young people:  If being called a ‘snowflake’ damages your mental health, that means YOU’RE A DAMN SNOWFLAKE!  How is it possible that that really needed to be said?
  • Tuesday was a big day for fake news news.  Let’s start with ABC News’s announcement that its star fake reporter, Brian Ross, will no longer be allowed to cover stories involving President Trump when he comes back from his 30 day holiday in January.  ABC had also made sure to leak the text of a “memo” written by its News Division President James Goldston, ostensibly lambasting his staff over Ross’s false report from last Friday, which temporarily tanked the stock market.  This is all window dressing, folks – ABC used the same tactic after Ross filed a previous fake report a few years ago, falsely tying a mass shooter to the Tea Party.  Nothing is going to change at ABC – the news fakery will go on unabated.
  • Meanwhile, over at NBC, if you are laboring under the illusion that Matt Lauer’s intra-office sexcapades were some sort of big secret at the Peacock Network, well, think again.  Everyone at NBC – and apparently at every other fake news media outlet – knew everything about Lauer, and many of his colleagues were willing participants and abettors of his behavior.  That’s the only reasonable conclusion one can draw from the report linked here from Fox News, which details the proceedings of a 2008 obscene roasting of Lauer at which everyone assembled in the room laughed uproariously about the fake news host’s debauchery.  I would post out-takes from it, but the Campaign Update draws the line at repeating jokes about anal sex.  In any event, if you’re thinking that NBC’s convenient jettisoning of Lauer – which will save the network $27 million annually – means the culture there will change, you should probably disabuse yourself of that silly notion.  No word if Charlie Rose and Mark Halperin had seats at the head table, but it does seem likely.
  • Hey, remember when real journalists would always require at least two corroborating sources before running with a big news story?  Yeah, those times are dead. – The normally fairly reliable Bloomberg ran with a report mid-day on Tuesday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had issued a subpoena to Deutsche Bank demanding it turn over client records related to its relationship with President Trump.  Within a few hours, Trump’s legal team had completely debunked the story, and one can only wonder  what the motive was for running with it in the first place, given that Bloomberg cited only a single, naturally unidentified source for the information.
  • But hey, faking the news is a highly-competitive business, and if Bloomberg’s gonna play with the big boys at the NYTimes and the WaPo, inconvenient things like real journalistic practices and editorial control have to be tossed out the proverbial window, right?  Right.

Just another day in fakety fakey fake news media America.

That is all.

The Fake News Media’s “Flirty” Floodgates Are Opening Up Wide

  • I suppose that yesterday, November 29, 2017, will forever be remembered as the day the floodgates truly began to open for the fake news media, which is apparently nothing more than a boiling cesspool of sexual abuse in the workplace.  First NBC’s venerable ultra-liberal Today Show host Matt Lauer, then commie long-time radio performer Garrison Keillor (I had thought he was dead – go figure), then NPR Chief Fake News Editor David Sweeney, and finally CNN’s Teddy Davis, the producer of Jake Tapper’s daily low-rated fake news-fest, gone, all gone, in a furious flurry of sexual harassment payback mania.
  • One can only wonder where it will all go from here.  For example, when will police in New York City (where NBC is located), Minneapolis (Keillor’s base of operations, as it were), Atlanta (CNN’s home) and Washington, DC (where NPR sucks up its taxpayer dollars) begin opening criminal investigations into all the fake media sexual abuse?  After all, the Los Angeles Police Department recently announced it has no fewer than 28 active criminal investigations into all the sex abuse charges that have been leveled at Harvey Weinstein and myriad other Hollywood hot shots – won’t the same elements of the law apply to all these fake journalists and mediocre entertainers?
  • Hey, before you even think about it, don’t any of you Lauer lovers try to tell anyone that it’s not the same thing, that the allegations against him don’t rise to the same level as those targeting Weinstein.  Lauer is a guy who insisted that NBC install a secret button under his desktop that allowed him to remotely lock his office door once an unsuspecting victim had entered his lair.  What in the hell did NBC’s executives think he wanted that for?  Plus, we have even more allegations against Lauer leaking out this morning.  So, please, spare us.
  • And what of all these morning “news and talk” programs in general?  We have now had three major figures – Mark Halperin of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, CBS’s Morning host Charlie Rose, and now Lauer – knocked off because they are, well, monsters.  How many more monsters lurk out there amidst all the snark, wine guzzling, fake laughter and phony on-camera camaraderie that goes on on those sets each morning?  How long can it be before we find out the hard way?
  • Also, what’s up at 30 Rock?  As already noted, two of the big media muckety-mucks who have now gone down – Lauer and Halperin – were NBC people.  Let us also never forget that NBC was the network that attempted to bury Ronan Farrow’s original investigative report on Harvey Weinstein, claiming it was not ready to be aired.  Farrow then took the story to The New Yorker, which almost immediately took it to press.
  • Was NBC News President Andy Lack – who hilariously claimed yesterday to have been blissfully unaware of Lauer’s horrible behavior – in fact nervous about having Lauer being forced to report on Weinstein in great depth and detail?  How would that have worked?  Would he have been able to keep a straight face while pretending to condemn Weinstein’s behavior?  Would he have required an off-air coach to teach him the proper facial expressions to mimic while doing his “reporting?”  In any event, it is becoming uncomfortably evident that NBC has a culture problem that needs to be addressed pretty quick, because the thought that Lack or anyone else who worked with Lauer had no idea about his behavior is patently absurd.
  • For those of us out here in flyover country, the moral to this accelerating fake news media sex abuse extravaganza is the old “those who live in glass houses should not be throwing stones” deal.  Lauer, Halperin and Rose have all sat there for many years in their fancy broadcast sets with their pancake makeup and carefully coiffed hair (yes, Lauer used to have hair), lecturing and preaching to ordinary Americans about how they need to behave, not just in the workplace, but in every aspect of their daily lives.  But, as so often turns out to be the case in this crazy life, it turns out that many of those doing the lecturing and preaching are the very worst actors imaginable.
  • In response to all of yesterday’s revelations, longtime muckraker Geraldo Rivera said in a tweet that “News is a flirty business.”  Given what we are all starting to find out about the culture that exists inside these big fake news operations, I think he just misspelled “dirty”.

Just another day in fake news media downfall America.

That is all.

The Harvey Weinstein-ing of Bill and Hillary Clinton is Well Underway

Today’s Campaign Update

  • Liberal icons continue to fall to revelations that they have abused women in the past.  I would have said “allegations” rather than “revelations”, but hey, I’ve been told that all these women must be believed.  Liberals made these rules, and now they must live with them, even as it becomes painfully obvious that the issue of sexual harassment is mainly an issue among liberals preying on liberals.
  • Yesterday alone, the roster of liberal sexual abusers grew with the addition of these names:  Democrat Cong. John Conyers; very, very haughty liberal CBS/PBC fake news man Charlie Rose; NY Times White House fake reporter Glenn Thrush; leftwing movie director Oliver Stone; Senator Al Franken was accused by a third woman; even Bill Clinton had four more women come out and accuse him of sexual abuse.  Folks, that’s just one day in liberal sex abuse world.
  • Don’t think this is all, or that we are even nearing the end of these revelations.  The reality is that this deal is just getting started in earnest where politicians are concerned.  I haven’t noted it here to this point, but it was revealed last week that congress has for the last 20 years had a process for sexual harassment allegations in place that requires accusers to sign non-disclosure agreements and go through 30 days of mandatory “counseling” before moving forward with formal claims.  Over the last two decades, even this process, which strongly discourages the victim from moving forward, has resulted in congressional payouts of more than $15 million to victims of sexual abuse.  John Conyers is just the tip of the iceberg where that’s concerned, trust me.
  • We’ve also just begun to scratch the surface where Bill Clinton is concerned.  The four women who accused the former President yesterday were all employees of billionaire Ron Burkel, with whom Clinton spent years flying around the world with a gaggle of young women during the early 2000’s.  Clinton also made dozens of flights on private jet of convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, who owned a private island known as ‘Orgy Island’ during the same time period.   What do you think he was doing with his pal Jeff?
  • Guess who else was a big pal of Mr. Epstein:  That’s right – Kevin Spacey, who himself stands accused of pedophilia by a covey of actors!  See how this all starts to tie together?  It doesn’t take a genius to see what our nation has ahead of it in the coming weeks and months, as all the people who have spent the last quarter century covering up for the Clintons wake up to the realization that they have lost their power and influence.
  • One such person is New York Senator Kirstin Gillebrand, who famously spent several weeks earlier this year acting on polling data that told Democrats that the best way to appeal to Millenials is to curse a lot in public.  Holy cow, did Sen. Gillebrand act on that data, filling every speech with f-words and s-words for weeks on end.
  • It’s no secret that Sen. Gillebrand entertains presidential ambitions of her own, and she has obviously decided that one good way to raise her profile is to quit covering for Bill Clinton, as she has done for many years, and go after him, as she did in an interview late last week.  In that interview, she told her fake journalist softball-lobbing interviewer that Mr. Clinton should have resigned over the Monica Lewinsky scandal.  She sort of got cold feet on Monday – possibly realizing she’d put herself in danger of committing Arkancide – and backed off of that claim, but her goal of raising her public profile by criticizing a Clinton was already accomplished.
  • Sen. Gillebrand is an early adopter of the ‘bash Clinton’ strategy for raising her public profile, and such early adoptions are always filled with stops and starts.  But we can expect more and more ambitious liberal politicians to jump on this train as the Clintons’ power and influence continue to wane.  It’s a much slower process, but the Clintons increasingly are finding themselves in the same situation that Harvey Weinstein is now in, isolated and with fewer and fewer hangers-on and media shills willing to do their bidding.
  • Unless the fake news media outlets that have covered for the Clintons for the last 25 years engage in one more big rally on their behalf, and start once again working to destroy anyone who criticizes them or accuses them of sexual wrongdoing, this process is irreversible.  Bill and Hill may well end up preferring to be prosecuted over the Uranium One scandal than to suffer through the ultimate public revelations of all of Bill’s sexual escapades.  It couldn’t happen to a nicer couple.

Just another day in liberal chickens coming home to roost America.

That is all.

Donna Brazile Discovers That Life As The Fredo Corleone Of Clinton World Is Hard

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Accused Hollywood pedophile actor Kevin Spacey might have been feeling friendless in recent days, but it turns out one writer who is famous for something or other – it’s been so long since he did anything of note it’s hard to remember what – is still on board the Spacey Train.  Gay Talese, who Vanity Fair describes as a “veteran journalist and author”, told the magazine on Tuesday that “I would like to talk to Kevin Spacey.  I feel so sad, and I hate that actor that ruined this guy’s career. So, OK, it happened 10 years ago … Jesus, suck it up once in a while!”  Oh, my, so many metaphors and puns one could use here in response to that particular passage, but let’s just exercise a little discretion and move along.
  • Speaking of public figures who are probably feeling friendless these days, let’s talk about Donna Brazile, who finds herself on the outs with pretty much everyone she used to consider a friendly face after becoming the first Clinton shill to break the media-enforced code of silence about Clinton wrongdoing.  Ms. Brazile, who is now basically the Fredo Corleone of the Clinton crime world, found herself on the CBS morning program on Tuesday, being interviewed by longtime fake news host Charlie Rose, the vapid Norah O’Donnell and Gayle King, who vacations with the Obamas, for crying out loud.  The former DNC Chairman probably hoped that her status as a lifelong Democrat party hack would get her the same sort of softball treatment this trio of fake journalists invariably toss out to their other Democrat clients, especially since she came into the interview with an obvious plan to start walking back her book’s claims that the Party’s nominating process had been rigged against Bernie Sanders.
  • Boy, was she surprised.  The fake hosts called her “bitter” and “angry” – words that if uttered towards a black woman by a conservative would have had these same fake journalists leveling charges of racism – and questioned Brazile’s honesty at several points in the interview.  Not that there’s anything bad about questioning the honesty of a shameless Clinton/Obama shill – lying for those people has been Brazile’s job for the last quarter century.  but the hostile tone of the questioning had to be startling for someone who has been used to being treated with kid gloves by fake interviewers for all these years.  Like Fredo, Brazile is finding out the hard way that, once you go against the family, there is no going back.
  • Another interesting tidbit we discovered when Brazile’s book was released on Tuesday is that she dedicated the tome to, among others, murdered DNC IT staffer Seth Rich. Now, think about this for a moment. The DNC’s official line on Seth Rich is that he was just a low-level staffer who really didn’t have any important responsibilities there. The DNC has viciously attacked anyone who has questioned the DC police line that Rich’s killing was a “robbery gone bad”, even though absolutely nothing was stolen from his person.
  • The Rich killing also took place on July 16, 2016, well before Ms. Brazile was called in to take over the DNC chairmanship on a temporary basis as the DNC Convention began later that month.  Yet she dedicates her book to him?  Did she even know him?  No wonder all the Clinton shills in the fake news media have been attacking her with a vengeance since Politico published the first excerpts from her book last Friday.
  • The reality is that Ms. Brazile, with the publication of a book that reveals vast wrongdoing by the Clintons and the DNC, finds herself in essentially the same position as actor Corey Feldman, who has recently re-started his campaign to expose Hollywood’s pedophile mafia.  Both have made the decision to go after people who have done wrong, and now find themselves faced with institutional pushback from not only former colleagues in their profession, but also a powerful news media that has spent decades protecting the very people they are attempting to expose.
  • Mr. Feldman first went after these people in 2013, but then got cold feet when he probably correctly began to fear for his safety.  He has now found renewed courage from the reaction to scandal surrounding Harvey Weinstein and Spacey, and has gotten the LA police involved for the first time.  He has also raised enough money to hire some personal security, which no doubt helps.
  • Ms. Brazile is showing signs of a similar case of cold feet, as the Clinton capo regimes in politics and the fake news media form up to attack her character.  Let’s hope she doesn’t find herself the victim of a “robbery gone bad” anytime soon.  A little personal security might be in order for her as well.

Just another day in the booming private security industry America.

That is all.
