CNN Stoops to Blackmail and Child Abuse

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Just another day in blackmailing fake news America.

That is all.

How the Left Celebrates the 4th of July

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Lunatic California Congresswoman Maxine Waters celebrated our nation’s birthday by threatening our Housing and Urban Development Secretary, Ben Carson:  “[If he] things [sic] that I am going to give him a pass, I am going to take his a** apart,” Waters told an audience at something called The Essence Festival in New Orleans.  Such a lovely, peaceful nitwit.
  • The fake reporters, anchors, editors, and management at CNN celebrated the nation’s birthday by learning that all their fake reporting and retracting stories and firing fake journalists led to a 20% decrease in the fake news network’s prime time audience during the month of June.  They all no doubt rededicated themselves to double down on their news-fakery efforts in July.
  • The fake journalists at The Hill reported that at least a dozen FBI employees sported the same t-shirt to the agency’s “Family Day” celebration on Saturday.  The logo on the t-shirt read “Comey is my Homey.”  This is what is known at the White House as a target-rich environment for cleaning out the DC Swamp.
  • In Murder City, aka Chicago, progressives celebrated the weekend leading into Independence Day as they always do, by shooting one another.  By midnight on Sunday, at least 6 Chicagoans had died, with reports citing as many as 50 having been wounded by gunfire in the streets of a city that has been led by Democrats exclusively for a century.  No wonder President Trump is threatening that the federal government might take over law enforcement duties in this cesspool.
  • On NBC’s fake news program “Meet The Press”, fake host Chuck Todd celebrated the nation’s birthday by assuring his viewers that he had no intention of discussing actual issues.  This exchange actually happened:

    Health and Human Services Secretary TOM PRICE:  Chuck, you know, this is really remarkable. You’ve got incredible challenges across this nation, incredible challenges around the world. The challenge that I’ve been given is to address the health care issues. And your program, a program with the incredible history of “Meet the Press,” and that’s what you want to talk about?

    TODD: I don’t.

    PRICE: Let me suggest to you that the American people want to talk about the challenges.

    TODD: Mr. Secretary, I don’t.

  • And of course, blessedly former President Barack Hussein Obama celebrated the birth of the United States of America by doing the same thing he’s always done, speaking out about the evils of actual patriotism.  No one should have expected anything else from this clown.

Happy Birthday, America!

That is all.

Trump Erases Obama Legacy as the Fake Media Obsesses Over Tweets

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

At the current pace, by the end of March, 2018 it will be as if Barack Obama never served as President.  By the end of March 2018, I believe that President Donald Trump will have signed congressional bills that repeal and replace ObamaCare, and which significantly reform both personal and corporate income taxes.

At that point, what will be left of the admittedly paltry Obama policy legacy?  Not much.  In reality, in fact, it’s already almost all gone, and the lazy, self-absorbed political activists who dominate the fake news media have barely noticed, mainly because they’ve been too busy obsessing over the two or three 140-character messages the President sends out on his favorite social media platform every morning.

Last week was a great example:  While the fake journalists at the NYTimes, CNN, MSNBC the WaPo and the three broadcast networks gave most of their print space and air time to rants about the President’s latest tweets about Mika and Joe, the President’s EPA announced the full repeal of the horrible Obama-era power grab called the Waters Of The United States rule.  This massive regulation would have basically given the EPA authority to regulate any temporary or permanent body of water in the entire nation, including puddles in your lawn, drainage ditches, overflowing swimming pools, and even city streets that are designed to carry storm water that ultimately drains into rivers and lakes.

After failing to pass this vast expansion of regulatory brutism even when his party controlled super majorities of both houses of congress in 2009-10, Obama’s EPA spent five years and hundreds of millions of dollars shoving this clearly illegal regulation through the system, including spending more than $10 million on an illegal advertising program for it.  The fake news media gave the regulatory effort gobs of free air and print time during its proposal and finalization phases, in its role as the propaganda wing of the Democrat Party.

But when EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt announced last week that the rule was being completely repealed, and a vastly scaled-back proposal would replace it, it got virtually no notice at all from the same fake media outlets that had promoted it so heavily just a few years ago.  They were all too consumed with making up narratives in which the President’s telling the truth about Joe and Mika in his morning tweets somehow constituted an impeachable offense.

Last week was also what the President and his Administration called “Energy Week”, a week in which Mr. Trump and his various cabinet officials announced all manner of pro-energy development actions they will be implementing in the coming months and years.  Again, the fake media, which has always firmly opposed U.S. energy development that doesn’t involve killing millions of birds and bats each year with windmills and solar arrays, barely took notice as the anti-development policies of the Obama years continued their rapid and systematic disappearance from the books.  They were just too busy debating whether it was Joe or the President or his son-in-law who first brought up the whole National Enquirer thing.

When the House of Representatives easily passed its Sanctuary Cities bill and Kate’s Law, again the fake news media failed to notice the steady advance of new laws that will help to completely erase the open borders, lawless policies of Mr. Obama.  They were all too busy obsessing over the latest futile gesture of congressional Democrats, this one a bill that proposes to remove President Trump from office due to mental incompetence.  No one in the fake news media could be bothered to point out the irony of the fact that the 25 sponsors of the bill are all pretty much mentally incompetent themselves.

We have to understand why this is happening.  It’s happening because the fake news media is not there to report the news.  Its collective goal, starting in 2008, shifted to doing everything it could to get Barack Obama elected to the presidency, and then, for the following 8 years, became to ensure the public never learned the truth about the radical socialist/fascist policies Mr. Obama was pursuing.

Then, on November 8, 2016, the collective goal of the fake news media shifted again, this time to do everything it could to effect the personal destruction of Donald J. Trump and facilitate Democrat efforts to ultimately remove him from office.  They initially latched onto the Democrat-invented Russia Collusion fantasy play. When that all fell apart on the shoals of James Comey’s mendacity, they then latched onto the equally-baseless “obstruction of justice” fantasy.  That having now been clearly shown to be utterly without any merit whatsoever, they have now shifted to the Democrat narrative that, because he likes to tweet in the morning hours and because he punches back against all the various assaults on his character in the fake news media, the President is somehow mentally incapable of performing his official duties.

But the results speak for themselves in that regard, don’t they?  In performing his official duties, President Trump has successfully erased his predecessor’s weak legacy more rapidly than anytime since Ronald Reagan took apart the feckless legacy of Jimmy Carter in 1981.  This is his job, this is why he was elected, these are his official duties.

So if you’re a Trump supporter who worries that all this tweeting is distracting the President from getting his job done, stop it.  He’s getting the job done more effectively and efficiently than any other president in modern times.  The results are undeniable, and the fake media’s obsession over the President’s tweeting habits only makes it easier for Mr. Trump to keep systematically erasing all of the Obama policy legacy from our collective national memory.

Some observers even claim this has been Mr. Trump’s intentional strategy.  That may be true, or it may not. Either way, it’s working.

Just another week in disappearing Obama legacy America.  May it RIP.

That is all.

Is The U.S. Close To Achieving ‘Energy Dominance’?

 

If you hadn’t heard, the Trump Administration has declared this week to be “Energy Week”, a week during which the President and his senior officials are focusing on the theme of “U.S. Energy Dominance.” Not “energy independence” or “energy security”, both themes past presidential administrations have focused upon – “energy dominance.”

So, what does it all mean, and can the United States actually achieve it? Good questions. Here are some answers.

First, when President Trump talks about his goal of Energy Dominance, he’s referring to a plan that envisions implementing policies that encourage four major elements:

 • Taking full advantage of America’s amazing abundance of oil, natural gas and coal;

• Increasing exports of all three of those fossil fuels and their related products;

• Relying more on imports of oil from Canada, Mexico and other Western Hemisphere nations, and less on imports from the Middle East and North Africa; and

• Leveraging all of those three elements to enhance U.S. bargaining positions in its foreign policy initiatives.

Right on cue, we saw the President engage in a bit of energy-leveraging during his discussions this week with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, folding India’s growing reliance on U.S. LNG imports into his request for a lessening of the rapidly growing nation’s import tariffs on U.S. goods. We should expect to see the President rely more and more on this sort of leverage as U.S. exports of oil, LNG and coal continue to rapidly grow in coming years. This, more than anything else, is what the President means when he talks about Energy Dominance.

Critics point to the reality that the U.S. currently imports about half of its daily crude oil needs, but they miss the point. This is not a discussion about energy “independence” – the President clearly understands that the U.S. will always be a net importer of crude oil.

Why No Real Person Sympathizes With Mika

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The fake news media spent all day Thursday and Friday portraying Morning Joe co-host Mika Brrzzzzeennsski (I have no idea how to spell that name and no desire to Google it) as a modern day combination of Joan of Arc and the Virgin Mary, a poor, hapless, helpless persecuted and defenseless woman who was being “bullied” by mean ol’ President Trump.  While this full court press for sympathy no doubt works with Mika’s fellow fake journalists and the upper class of New York City’s Upper East Side, it won’t work with any normal person who becomes acquainted with Mika’s background and personal behavior.
  • Why?  Well, think about it: Before she turned up as the co-host of Morning Joe, had you ever even heard of Mika Brrrzzzzzennsski?  No, of course not. She’s like the Chelsea Clinton of the fake news media, parlaying no talent, little brains and a famous last name into national visibility.  This is not an intrepid journalist who clawed her way to national visibility through hard work and diligence – that would be Sharyl Attkisson – Mika is a person born into great privilege, the daughter of Jimmy Carter’s National Security Adviser and pedigreed creature of the ruling class.
  • And Mika is not some poor, shrinking violet who never did anything to deserve a little presidential tweet storm:  She’s been the co-host of a national-TV talk show who has for the last six months spent three hours every morning slandering the President, his wife, his 11 year-old son, his other children and their wives at every possible opportunity.  Fox News put together a little 15 second clip of a few of her more recent insults, but the truth is that you could put together a feature-length film and still not cover all the nastiness Poor Miss Mika has tossed at the President and the First Family since he turned her and Joe away at Mar-a-Lago over New Year’s.  This presidential rejection obviously caused a bitterness that neither Mika nor her not-so-secret anymore boyfriend have ever gotten over.
  • So, while her fellow fake journalists and the subscriber base for the NYTimes will no doubt feel terrible for poor, poor Mika, no normal person who learns the truth of her background and behavior will waste a second of concern on her, nor should they.
  • Meanwhile, over at CNN, the ratings continue to tank.  Despite the failing network’s claim to have had its “highest-rated 2nd quarter ever” – an outright lie – it is running a poor third to Fox and MSNBC in both the total ratings and the vaunted 25-54 advertising demographic.  But surely a few more lectures from Brian Stelter and whining from Jim Acosta will turn it all around.
  • From our “Don’t Make Promises You Won’t Keep” file:  Houston congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee took to the floor of the House in outrage after the President’s tweet storm on Thursday, demanding that Mr. Trump resign immediately, and promising to “not vote for a single thing” until he does!  Ms. Jackson Lee continues to be the most unintentionally hilarious member of the House of Representatives.
  • Ms. Jackson Lee also made news by joining 23 other House Democrat lunatics in signing onto a bill that would propose to remove President Trump from office due to mental incapacity.  She even told an interviewer that congress has the power to do this under the 25th amendment.  Of course, congress has no such authority under the 25th amendment – only the Cabinet does – and of course this bill is just another example of how extreme leftist nitwits have come to dominate the Democrat Party.
  • Oh yeah, and finally, both the NYTimes and the Associated Press were forced to walk back multiple reports they issued over the last few months claiming that “17 intelligence agencies” had jointly agreed there was evidence of Russian interference in the 2016 elections.  Turns out that only 4 of the 17 U.S. intelligence agencies agreed with that assessment, and the truth most likely is that it was really just one low-level clerk sitting in a broom-closet office who made that “finding.”

Trump’s Unforced Error

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • My favorite part of the fake news media’s group head explosion yesterday in the wake of President Trump’s tweets about Joe and Mika is all the tsk-tsking among the fake journalist community about how the President’s behavior “wasn’t presidential”.  Oh, by “presidential” you mean having sex with interns in the Oval Office, like media hero Bill Clinton?  Or by “presidential”, do you mean loading up jumbo jets with foreign currency to ship over to Iran’s Mullahs and lying to the public about it – that kind of “presidential”?  Or by “presidential”, do you mean having affairs with film stars and mobster girlfriends while the adoring media looks the other way, ala media icon JFK?  That sort of “presidential”?  Wait – by “presidential”, do you mean escalating a war halfway across the world, a war in which 58,000 Americans would ultimately lose their lives, based on a Gulf of Tonkin “incident” that you and your media supporters know is a CIA-implemented fraud?  THAT kind of “presidential”?
  • As is pretty much always the case, the substance of the President’s little tweet-storm will be proven to be correct.  Note that during the entire day, no one made any effort at all to dispute the facts of the tweets.  Mika is “low IQ” – that reality becomes absolutely manifest to anyone who watches more than a few minutes of the program.  She’s the dimmest in a room filled with dim bulbs.  Joe and Mika did spend three days stalking the then-President-elect at Mar-a-Lago over New Year’s – their presence there was well-documented and criticized by their jealous fellow fake journalists at the time.  We will almost certainly learn in coming days that she was indeed bleeding from a recent face-lift, though the fake media will do its very best to cover that part up.  There is little doubt Joe Scarborough – who spent years serving in congress while pretending to be a conservative Christian but now lives a life of leftist hedonism – is a bit of a psycho.  How else to explain his 18 months of shameless sucking up to Donald Trump while he was campaigning for the presidency, and immediate shift to being a daily presidential slanderer once Trump assumed the office?
  • President Trump at this point completely lives in the fake media’s collective head.  They are utterly and completely obsessed with him and consumed by him.  He is, quite literally, driving what already was an unstable and inherently dishonest national media establishment stark, raving mad.  And here’s reality:  A fake news media establishment that has not spent a moment defending KellyAnne Conway from the disgusting, daily sexist attacks on her character for the last year has no moral authority whatsoever to accuse anyone else of “sexism”.
  • All of that having been said, the timing of his Mika/Joe tweets couldn’t have been worse, and amounts to a real unforced error.  When we all got up yesterday morning, Trump had CNN and its CEO Jeff Zucker on the ropes.  As I pointed out in yesterday’s Campaign Update, CNN was in the horrible position of actually being The Story.  The fake news network’s fraudulent behavior and Zucker’s feckless leadership was on everyone’s mind, and pretty much all anyone was talking about.  Add to that the fact that the President’s travel ban would go into effect later in the day, and the House was about to pass both the Sanctuary Cities bill and Kate’s Law, and the Trump Administration was destined to have a very successful day.
  • Instead, the President steps on his own message at 8:50 a.m., and the rest of the day turns into a media frenzy about tweets.  Not good.  Not smart.  Or, as the President himself might include in one of his 140 character tweets: Sad!
  • I have no problem with Mr. Trump counter-punching those two clowns.  Their show is nothing more than 3 hours of unending character assassination and dehumanization of a sitting POTUS, 3 solid hours of assassination dog-whistling, 5 days a week.  So hey, they deserve a little pushback.
  • But damn, do it at the right time.  If you want to tweet-storm these clowns, pick a slow news day during congress’s August recess, not a day when CNN is in full meltdown mode.
  • Because the truth is, Morning Joe, as repugnant as its content is to the President, has almost no audience.  You know who the program’s most religious viewers are?  Fake journalists who work in the fake news media.  Morning Joe is where they get their first dose of daily talking points to parrot throughout the day.  Otherwise, the show’s viewers consist mainly of elite leftist snobs in New York City, Washington DC and Los Angeles.  Literally no one who is important to Donald Trump’s success as President watches this program.
  • So, bottom line, the tweets were a clear and stupid unforced error on the president’s part.  His main media antagonist was on the ropes, self-destructing, and he interrupted that dynamic.  Not the end of the world, but a lost opportunity to have this Sunday’s morning news programs focused on what has been a very good week of policy wins for the Administration.  Instead, they’ll all be focused on tweets.  Sad!

Just another day in unforced error America.

That is all.

Van Jones Video Makes Fake News CNN “The Story”

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

It’s never a good things for any news outlet when it becomes “the story,” but that’s what has happened to the Fake News-purveying CNN.  It couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people.

  • It’s official:  The Fake News Network, aka CNN, has now become “The Story.”  The Story is no longer Russia Collusion, or  Obstruction, or Obamacare Repeal and Replace, or Tax Reform, or whatever President Donald Trump happened to tweet out this morning.  CNN is now The Story, in the wake of the release of a second expository video from James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, in which communist former Obama advisor and long-time CNN contributor Van Jones calls the Fake News Network’s focus on Russia Collusion “A big nothing burger.”  That’s all he said in the very brief clip, but it’s all he needed to say.
  • Suddenly, nobody is talking about Russia or Obstruction anymore, and everyone is talking about CNN and Project Veritas.  The fake journalists at CNN spent more time defending themselves and their Fake News Network on Wednesday than they did attempting to slander the POTUS.  Yes, much of the media noise about CNN/Veritas was slamming Veritas and defending CNN, but that misses the point.  The point is that this was The Story that everyone in the fake national news media was focused on.  Given that O’Keefe says he plans to release another new CNN-exposing video every day for the rest of this week, it’s a safe bet that this will continue to be the case.
  • The bad news for the rest of the fake news media is that CNN is not the only fake news outlet getting such attention. Legendary Watergate reporter Bob Woodward, in remarks he gave following a screen of “All The President’s Men” in New York City, chastised the fake journalists at the NYTimes and other big media outlets for engaging in the same sort of unmitigated bias that characterizes CNN’s 24 hours of fake journalism every day.  Sharyl Attkisson, another fantastic real journalist who was fired by CBS News for actually investigating the Obama-era abuse of the IRS, told a Fox News panel that the national news media gives the public a “false sense of reality”, and that many of those posing as journalists on TV and in social media are nothing more than “well-funded actors.”  Ouch.
  • Amidst all of this, CNN is being stalked by AT&T, and rumors abound that CNN CEO Jeff Zucker’s head might be on the chopping block should that buyout take place.
  • Of course, CNN’s on-air fake talent tried desperately to shift the focus, smearing O’Keefe and his “heavily-edited” videos, and laughably claiming that Jones was “taken out of context”.  Wolf Blitzer, who was captured on film sharing wine and snacks with the Clinton staff at the Democrat National Convention, tried to shift focus back to President Trump, claiming that his calling the fake news media “the enemy of the people” back in January is putting fake journalists like him in danger.  *sigh*
  • Predictably, CNN’s ratings continued to crash and burn, with the Tuesday night ratings showing a significant drop from Monday’s.  Fox News continued to increase its renewed dominance of CNN and MSNBC, with its total audience very nearly equaling both of its main competitors combined.
  • Make no mistake about it, CNN is in deep trouble at the moment.  Its reputation is dead to anyone with functioning synapses in their cranial cavity, its leadership is in peril, its ratings are tanking, and it may soon be bought out and have to answer to new overlords.
  • Meanwhile, President Donald Trump held meetings with energy leaders and victims of illegal immigrant crime, hosted the Chicago Cubs at the White House, and continued to press GOP senators for their support for the repeal and replacement of Obamacare, hinting at the end of the day that the senate was about to produce a “big surprise” on the Obamacare issue.

Just another day in fake news media becoming The Story 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.

CNN is Having a Bad Week; The Trump Administration Should Make it Worse

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Two fake reporters and a fake editor resigned from CNN on Monday amid the fallout from the #fakenews network’s having to retract and apologize for yet another fake story on what it likes to call “RussiaGate”.  Interestingly, one of the fake reporters, a guy named Eric Lichtbau, had recently come to CNN from the equally fake NYTimes.  Apparently, infesting the already fake CNN with the “standards” of the NYTimes only served to compound fakery on top of fakery.  But don’t worry about CNN – journalism schools turn out thousands of great fake journalists every semester, so they’ll be able to just plug three more news fakers in and keep their fake news operation running like a finely-tuned fake machine.
  • In case you hadn’t noticed (and most normal Americans haven’t), the White House has taken to holding most of its press briefings off-camera in recent weeks.  This has set CNN’s prissy White House fake reporter, Jim Acosta, off on a series of on-air rants with several of CNN’s fake news hosts.  Over the past week, Mr. Acosta has called White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer “worthless”, accused the White House of suppressing the news, and of “black-balling” him and his fake news network.  Yesterday, after he had repeatedly heckled Spicer during the daily press briefing, Acosta found his seat moved to the back row at President Trump’s even with the Prime Minister of India later in the day.
  • All of this brings to my mind the question of why the White House continues to allow Mr. Acosta and his fellow fake journalists at CNN access to the White House at all?  In the wake of the recent Harvard study that found that CNN’s fake reporting on the Trump Administration is 93% hostile, it is more blatantly obvious than ever that Mr. Acosta and his CNN colleagues are nothing more than Democrat operatives with press credentials.  CNN is, after all, the same network that fed debate questions to Hillary Clinton in advance during the campaign.  If you are going to allow CNN to ask questions at daily press briefings, you might as well invite the DNC over to do the same.
  • I’ve written this before, but it bears repeating:  The President of the United States and his press people have an obligation to tell the truth to the American people, and keep them informed on what the Administration is doing.  It is up to the Administration to decide how it will meet this obligation.  No POTUS has any obligation whatsoever to legitimize any specific news outlet by granting it press credentials and access to the White House.  When any news outlet makes a conscious decision to abandon all journalistic ethics and become nothing more than a propaganda arm for the opposition political party – which is exactly what CNN has done – then the POTUS has no reason or obligation to allow it continued access to the White House or any executive branch department of the government.
  • CNN, the major TV networks, the NYTimes and the WaPo all continue to engage in their anti-journalistic practices for the simple reason that, to this point in time, they have had no accountability or consequences for doing so.  The Trump Administration could change all of that by revoking the press passes of Mr. Acosta and everyone else from CNN, as Newt Gingrich has been advocating it do in recent weeks.  It is long past time for these bad actors to face some consequences for their bad acts.
  • Tired of winning yet? – Meanwhile, in a unanimous decision, the Supreme Court allowed most of the Trump Administration’s long-proposed travel ban on seven Muslim terrorist-supporting nations (as identified by the Obama Administration) to go into effect.  In allowing the ban to go into effect, the 9 justices first had to conclude that, when they formally hear the case in the Fall, the Administration is very likely to prevail on the constitutional issue at hand, i.e., whether the current POTUS has the express authority to limit immigration any way he sees fit, as every other POTUS has had.  If you marvel that there is even any question about this power, understand that it is only a question in the perverted minds of the Obama-appointed federal judges whose anti-constitutional lower court decisions in this case couldn’t even pass the laugh tests of the likes of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan.
  • The hilarious part about all of this is that the Administration’s proposed “ban” is really a proposal for a 90-day “pause” in immigration from the countries in question, and more than 180 days have now passed since it was initially proposed.  In addition, more than 90 days will pass before the Supreme Court will even hear oral arguments in the case, since the Court does not reconvene until October.  Thus, by the time the constitutional vagaries in this case have been fully adjudicated, the point will be moot. Welcome to the wonderful world of American jurisprudence.

Just another day in fake news media America.

That is all.
