President Trump Should Let Chuck And Nancy Have Their Government Shut-Down

  • First Lady Melania Trump stopped in at a local Whataburger while on a visit to Corpus Christi on Wednesday.  While the nitwits who infest Vanity Fair and the NYTimes are surely only interested in which shoes she wore to order her Whataburger with cheese and fries, I am officially in awe of our First Lady after that gesture to the people of Texas.  If you’ve never had a Whataburger and aren’t familiar with the company’s history and the place it occupies in Texas culture, you won’t understand why.  But trust me, every native Texan does.
  • It’s Senator Smalley Day in the U.S. Senate! – That’s right:  Today is the day when the terminally smarmy jackass Senator from Minnesota – who, let’s all never forget, acquired his seat solely due to massive voter fraud – announces that he has decided he is gropey enough, he’s perverted enough, and dog-gonnit, women hate him.  Because of all of that, he will resign his illegitimately-obtained seat and let Minnesota’s Democrat Governor appoint his replacement, who will get to serve through 2020.  Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.
  • After congress passed an actual law in 1995 mandating the U.S. move its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to the Israeli capital of Jerusalem, President Bill Clinton signed the law and promised to get it done, but then caved in to pressure from the terrorists who run Palestine because they said it would negatively impact the Middle East “peace process.”  George W. Bush, when running for president in 2000, also promised to make this move, but then, once in office, caved in to pressure from the terrorists who run Palestine because they said it would negatively impact the Middle East “peace process.”   Barack Hussein Obama, when running for president in 2000, also promised to make this move, but then, once in office, caved in to pressure from the terrorists who run Palestine because they said it would negatively impact the Middle East “peace process.”  Are we beginning to detect a pattern here?
  • Donald J. Trump, when running for president in 2016, promised to make this move, and then, once in office, began to receive massive pressure from the terrorists who run Palestine not to do it, because they said it would negatively impact the Middle East “peace process.”  Faced with the previous 22 years of the very definition of insanity, President Trump yesterday realized that there is no “peace process” if our country keeps just giving in to the terrorists who run Palestine, and announced that he’s going to actually obey the law congress passed in 1995, and move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, where it has always belonged.  So nice to have a POTUS who doesn’t pander to terrorists, and who is actually focused on keeping the promises he made during his campaign.
  • This action by President Trump is, in a microcosm, the main reason why he is POTUS today.  He was elected to do the things his weak-kneed predecessors refused to do, to use the office of the presidency to protect the interests of American citizens and America’s allies, priorities that no president has really focused on since Ronald Reagan.
  • All of which brings me to this week’s negotiations over extending the continuing resolution that keeps the government funded.  With Chuck Schumer and San Fran Nan threatening to shut down the government because they want amnesty for all the “Dreamers”, weak-kneed Republicans in congress are running scared because they know the fake news media will put the blame for the shut-down on them.
  • My question to them is, so what?  Have you learned nothing from history?  The last time the Republicans got blamed by the fake news media for shutting down the federal government was 2013, when Ted Cruz single-handedly dragged the party kicking and screaming to negotiate something meaningful into the budget bill under consideration at the time.  14 months later, the GOP went on to win a massive tidal wave victory in the next mid-term congressional elections in 2014.  Why?  Because by shutting down the government, even for just a few days, Republicans in congress energized their base by demonstrating they actually do have the ability to stand for something.
  • But this week, every congressional Republican is begging President Trump to save them from getting blamed for shutting down the government again.  What is wrong with this picture?  Do these people never learn that they are going to get negative media treatment no matter what they do, for the simple fact that they are Republicans?  How many times must that lesson be pounded into their brains before they quit hitting their head up against the same brick wall?
  • Now is the time to do something meaningful, folks.  Just kicking the can down the road for the thousandth time only helps the Democrats.  Not only should the GOP refuse to include anything about the “Dreamers” in this CR, they should refuse to pass anything that doesn’t include funding for the border wall.  This constant surrendering in the face of the first sign of adversity is the main reason why congressional Republicans are detested by a growing number of naturally Republican voters.
  • This is a potential teaching moment for President Trump.  There is no doubt his instinct will be to let Chuck and Nancy shut the government down if they want to, and then get on this Twitter feed and pound them for as long as it lasts.  That’s exactly what he should do, for the benefit of the Republican Party and the country.
  • The Republicans in congress have been repeating this exact failed strategy in budget negotiations for far too long.  It’s up to President Trump to stop the insanity.  Shut.  It.  Down.

Just another day in stop the madness America.

That is all.

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.

Mueller’s Gestapo Tactics Only Reinforce The Reasons Why Trump Won in 2016

  • This stuff is why Trump is President. – If nothing else good comes of it, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is serving as a stark reminder to all Trump voters of why they voted for him.  The President himself reminded the nation on Monday morning that, while General Mike Flynn has been indicted for making false statements to investigators, Hillary Clinton was awarded a free pass by former FBI Director James Comey in July 2016, after she had made a raft of false statements during her FBI interview.  This morning, the Daily Caller reminds us that Clinton’s two senior aides, Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills also gave heinously misleading testimony to FBI investigators, again with no consequences.
  • Of all the myriad reasons why Trump voters decided in 2016 that the DC Swamp needed draining and Trump was just the guy to do it, this kind of selective application of the law was probably reason #1.  Robert Mueller and James Comey obviously believe that America has a bifurcated legal system – one system for the hundreds of millions of ordinary American citizen rabble out here in flyover country, and another for members in good standing of the Ruling Class, like Hillary, Huma and Cheryl.  This makes perfect sense to Mueller and Comey, since they are the de facto henchmen for that Ruling Class.
  • Those of you who are wondering why it is that the voters in Alabama appear to be set on sending Roy Moore to the U.S. Senate in spite of all the women accusers arrayed against him, it’s mainly because they know that his opponent, Democrat Doug Jones, would go to Washington and become just another reliable lapdog for the Swamp rulers.  These voters know that, whatever Moore may have done back during the Carter and Reagan Administrations, he plans to go to DC to help Trump clean the damn place out.  There’s really no more to it than that.
  • Speaking of Mueller’s absurd Special Counsel “investigation”, it appears now he has completely abandoned any effort at all to investigate the Democrat/fake news media invented fantasy of the Trump camp “colluding” with Russia to influence the election.  Writing in the National Review, Andrew McCarthy, himself  a former federal prosecutor, believes that the Flynn plea deal means that Mueller’s grand strategy now is to build an obstruction of justice case against the President.
  • Given that the President really can’t be prosecuted for obstructing justice, since, as Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz pointed out on Fox News on Monday, he is the chief law enforcement officer of the United States, Mueller’s new focus means he is not working to actually bring charges against President Trump.  Rather, he is working to build a case for impeachment by congress.
  • If that’s really the strategy from the Special Counsel’s office, it simply points up how critical the 2018 mid-term congressional elections really are.  If American voters award control of either house of congress to the Democrats, then our country will literally become paralyzed for two solid years as the hyper-partisan Dems do literally nothing but try to impeach a sitting President for “crimes” that simply do not exist.
  • Another big leftist hope making the rounds of the internet currently is that Mueller may be trying to build a case against Trump for violating the Logan Act, for asking Flynn to make contact with Russia while he was still President-elect.  Here is the relevant text of the 1799 Logan Act:
  • “Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
  • Now, here’s why the Logan Act, in its 218 year life, has never, not one time, resulted in a prosecution of anyone:  If you take that text literally, John McCain alone would have been found guilty of violating the Logan Act half a dozen times since Trump took office, and probably 50 times during the presidency of George W. Bush, as McCain has made a frequent habit of making speeches in foreign lands that are highly critical of U.S. foreign policy, but only during Republican Administrations.  Liberal hero Ted Kennedy wrote letters to Soviet Union leaders, actively seeking their intervention in the 1984 elections against Ronald Reagan.  On and on and on this list could go.
  • If Mueller really is working on a Logan Act case, then everyone on the White House should be breaking out the champagne and celebrating, because that cat won’t flush.
  • The bottom line here is that the whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy play is officially dead.  By mounting his incredibly biased, highly-selective “investigation” in such a public way, Robert Mueller is only reinforcing support for President Trump among those who voted for him in 2016.  Mueller has now replaced Mitch McConnell as the official poster child for the movement out here in flyover country to clean out the DC Swamp.  If the President fired him tomorrow, there is not a single Trump supporter at this point who would bat an eye about it, because they know who the bad guy in this fantasy play really is.

Just another day in Ding, Dong, Russia Collusion Is Dead America.

That is all.

Trump Enrages The Atlantic Simply By Eating. Now, That is Winning!

  • Why are fake news media outlets such cesspits of abuse and bigotry?  Part 3,152 – Eternally belligerent MSNBC fake news host Joy Reid issued an apology yesterday for the revelation of a heinously bigoted, homophobia-filled blog she maintained about a decade ago, but not, of course, before she had attempted to delete the blog entirely.   “At no time have I intentionally sought to demean or harm the LGBT community, which includes people whom I deeply love,” Reid said, though, in her blog, she obviously did do that on many, many occasions.  Guess the devil made her do it.
  • Hey, c’mon, it was an innocent 3-year long mistake.  Could’ve happened to anybody. – MSNBC, which, as a part of NBC, has been embroiled in dealing with the recent sex abuse scandals swirling around its own Mark Halperin and NBC’s Matt Lauer, was mute on the Reid controversy.  But after all, MSNBC is the network that kept the likes of Keith Olbermann and Al Sharpton employed for years, so expecting this particular fake news outlet to punish Joy Reid in any meaningful way is like expecting ABC to do so with, say, Brian Ross.
  • Hey, when something’s inevitable, you might as well enjoy it. – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who was among the first political figure to jump out and try to force Judge Roy Moore out of the Alabama Senate race when he became accused of weird sexual behavior back in the early ’80s, has had a sudden change of heart.  On Sunday, McConnell told a fake interviewer on ABC’s This Week that “I’m going to let the people of Alabama make the call.”  Well, that’s mighty big of you, Mitch, given that you have absolutely no say in the matter at all.
  • Someone really should remind the WaPo about the definition of insanity. – The Majority Leader was most likely just responding to a raft of new polls that almost uniformly show Judge Moore with a fairly strong lead of 6-8 points among likely voters in the race.  I say “almost” because the reliable hacks at the Washington Post poll made a last-ditch effort to influence the race, tossing in a faked-up poll pretending to show Democrat Doug Jones with a 3 point lead.  Everyone should remember that it was the Washington Post/ABC poll that showed Hillary Clinton with a 13-point lead less than two weeks before Election Day 2016.  We saw how that worked out for them.
  • Having apparently exhausted all other avenues of irrationally slamming President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three words), the fake journalists who infest The Atlantic have now decided to go after him for his…wait for it…EATING HABITS!  I kid you not, some guy named James Hamblin issued a piece on Saturday that condemns Trump for liking – gasp! – McDonald’s and – horrors! – Oreos, for regularly consuming more that elite society deems appropriate in one sitting, and for snarfing down his food too quickly.  Why, the nerve!
  • Here’s a typical paragraph:  “There is no question that this diet is dangerous and is very likely to shorten a person’s life. His dietary pattern adds to the picture of a 70-year-old man who has long been living against all health advice—who does not exercise, who barely sleeps, who has tumultuous relationships, who is frequently enraged.” The author even goes on to claim that the President’s eating habits might well get us all killed, speculating that “Decisions to live this way would seem to offer insight into Trump’s ability to assess risk. In light of a nuclear standoff with North Korea, rapidly warming oceans, and a looming tax bill that would leave millions more Americans without health insurance, his approach to self-maintenance is not reassuring.”
  • It takes a special kind man to be able to enrage leftist Manhattan elitists by the simple act of consuming food, and it is oddly reassuring to so many millions of us out here in flyover country that our current POTUS is exactly that kind of man.  Now I think I’ll run out to McDonald’s and get three bacon, eggs and cheese biscuits and a large Diet Coke for breakfast.

Just another day in Donald Trump is Winning Through Eating America.

The Trump Energy Plan: A Sea Change in U.S. Energy Policy

It has been a year now since we all awoke on Nov. 9, 2016, to the reality that, against all odds and all predictions by the polls and political “experts,” Donald J. Trump had somehow defeated Hillary Clinton in the race to become the 45th President of the United States. It was a stunning outcome to a seemingly endless campaign, one that had turned into the most vicious and personal presidential contest in modern times.

The oil and gas industry had not supported Trump’s candidacy during the Republican Party’s primary and nominating process, when most contributions from industry executives and company employee PACs flowed to more conventional politicians like Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, and Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Marco Rubio of Florida. The same held true in the general election, during which the vast majority of contributions from industry executives flowed to Clinton.

Despite that slight, Trump made the promotion of policies that support a healthy oil and gas industry a centerpiece of his campaign strategy from beginning to end. During his speeches, the primary and general election debates, and the hundreds of rallies he conducted before crowds of thousands of supporters, candidate Trump talked about issues all too familiar to those in and around the nation’s oil patches: the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, EPA’s Waters of the United States regulatory scheme, the Clean Power Plan and the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) hydraulic fracturing rule.

At a September 2016 rally in Pittsburgh, Trump made a speech that was very typical to what he said throughout his campaign: “I am going to lift the restrictions on American energy and allow this wealth to pour into our communities — including right here in Pennsylvania. The shale energy revolution will unleash massive wealth for American workers and families.”

It was an extraordinary thing. No candidate in modern times from any political party had worked so hard to make energy in general, and the oil and gas industry specifically, such a major part of his or her campaign’s messaging. When seeking support from the oil and gas industry and many others, though, Trump turned off many people with his rhetoric and antics on other matters. His unpredictability made millions of Americans simply uncomfortable with the idea of having this person occupying the highest office in the land. This factor remains true a full year after his election.

Sunday Scattershooting While Wondering Whatever Happened To That Delightful Barbara Boxer?

  • Here’s what the fake news media thinks “accountability” looks like:  When you have a reporter who files a completely false report for the sole apparent reason of damaging the President of the United States, tanking the entire stock market in the process, his “punishment” is a four week vacation timed perfectly for the Christmas holidays.  That’s what ABC did with its serial fake reporter, Brian Ross on Saturday.  Man, nice work if you can get it.
  • Hey, it worked out great for Lenin and Mao, didn’t it? – Meanwhile, over at NBC, network executives have had their staff busy taking down all photos and videos of disgraced morning fake host Matt Lauer from the network’s website the last few days, apparently in the belief they can simply rewrite the history of the last 20 years, during which Lauer has been the network’s most important on-camera employee.  Somehow, I don’t think that strategy is going to work out all that well.
  • Speaking of fake media outlets getting caught with their collective pants down… – When the White House announced on Friday that President-elect Trump actually received the all-clear from the Obama Administration to start making contacts with Russia and other governments during the interim period last Winter, fakety fakey fake news host Jake Tapper immediately went to his go-to guy for bald-faced lying about President Trump, Director of National Intelligence and serial perjurer James Clapper.  Clapper told Tapper (hey, that rhymes – maybe that’s why these two permanent prevaricators are so fond of one another) that it was “absurd” to think the Obama Administration would have approved any such thing.
  • The TapperClapper team’s gonna need a new lie. – The trouble is, the Obama Administration is caught on video doing exactly that.  Tyler Durden, at his ZeroHedge.com blog, dug that very video from his archives late on Saturday.  Here’s the key exchange:
  • REPORTER: “This building [the Obama State Department] doesn’t see anything necessarily inapprorpiate in contact between members of the incoming [Trump] administration and foreign officials, no matter what country they’re from?
  • OBAMA STATE DEPT SPOKESPERSON: “No, no…and again this has been ongoing. We have no problem with them doing such on their own.”      Hmmmm.  Seems pretty clear, doesn’t it?
  • Getting tired of all this winning yet? – The New York office of the Federal Reserve, which has over the past several years employed a statistical tool that attempts to estimate the performance of the U.S. economy in real time, announced on Friday that its index had reached an all-time high of 3.93% GDP growth last week.  Amazing what the U.S. economy can do when we don’t have a president who is intentionally trying to limit it via over-regulation, huh?
  • House Intel Committee Chairman Devin Nunes blew his stack on Saturday when the Mueller Special Counsel’s Office leaked to both the NYTimes and WaPo information about why FBI Agent Peter Strzok had been jettisoned from the investigation over the summer.  The obviously orchestrated leak came after Nunes had been attempting to acquire information about Strzok’s reassignment since August.
  • It turns out that Strzok, who had also played key roles in both the Clinton e-mail fake investigation and the fake investigation into the Trump Dossier hoax, was caught by Mueller exchanging nasty texts and emails about President Trump.  Mueller was afraid that the revelation of those messages would over-shadow his own person soap box, so he tried to quietly rid himself of the problem.
  • No one takes the Boy Who Cried Wolf seriously. – Nunes threatened to file contempt charges against the FBI and DOJ if his requests to interview Strzok and for a raft of information the agencies have been stonewalling for months are not complied with by the end of December.  But Nunes has made such threats several times before without taking action, so no doubt Mueller and the deep state creeps at DOJ and FBI just chuckled when they heard of this latest threat.
  • Oh, and by the way, the Republicans in the do-nothing U.S. Senate actually took a vote on something important and managed pass it.  No, really, they did, somehow cobbling together 51 votes in favor of the Senate version of a tax reform bill.  So who was the lone GOP holdout?  Why, it was Tennessee Senator Bob Corker, who just could not bring himself to vote in favor of anything that might be portrayed as a victory for a President of his own political party.  Mr. Corker’s personal pettiness knows no bounds.  But that’s ok, because Trump just keeps winning, anyway.

Just another day in Donald Trump’s Winning America.

ABC’s False Flynn Reporting Proves Our Society Needs Ways To Punish The Fake News Media

  • Nothing to see here, folks, move along.  Nothing to see here. – ABC’s Brian Ross proved once again yesterday that he really should be working at CNN.  Ross’s breathless morning report that Mike Flynn was ready to testify that then-candidate Donald Trump had instructed him to collude with the Russians to try to impact the election threw the entirety of the fake news media and social media into a tizzy, with liberals at every media outlet excitedly predicting that this was the “beginning of the end” for President Trump.
  • There was just one problem, though:  the story was, as Ross’s stories so often turn out to be, completely false.  But ABC let it hang out there all day long, negatively impacting the 401K accounts of millions of Americans by tanking the stock market, before finally forcing Ross to correct his fake story on the network’s nightly newscast.
  • The report was fake, but inaccurate. – On that broadcast, Ross told fake news reader David Muir that, well, gosh, actually, ummmm….welllll, it turns out that what his “source” had really told him was that, er, candidate Trump had simply instructed Flynn to start coming up with suggested approaches to a number of issues facing the U.S. and Russia, and then, after the election, President-elect Donald Trump told him to do his damn job and start making contacts with Russia, along with many other countries, which is what every other president-elect in modern U.S. history has done.
  • ABC characterized Ross’s followup report as a “clarification”, but that’s not what it was at all.  It was in fact an admission that the original report was simply false, and that Flynn’s plea deal is extremely unlikely to have any significant real impact on President Trump or his administration at all.  Put simply, there is no story here, and never really was.
  • Here’s what really happened yesterday:  Mike Flynn agreed to plead guilty to making false statement to the FBI, a process crime that has literally nothing to do with what Robert Mueller’s special counsel office is supposed to be investigating.  In exchange for that plea deal, Flynn agreed to give testimony in cases against other targets of this sham investigation, most likely Paul Manafort or Jared Kushner.
  • In his statement before the court, Flynn made it very clear that what he won’t be doing is offering any testimony that might be characterized as an admission that he or anyone else in the Trump operation engaged in collusion with anyone from Russia to influence the election.  In other words, there is absolutely nothing new here at all.  Not one damn thing took place yesterday that we did not already know was going to happen, and yet our entire society was disrupted for half a day because ABC let Brian Ross, a reporter already well-known for filing fake reports, file a completely fake report.
  • We as a country have a desperate need to find ways to penalize these giant fake media operations when they engage in such heinous false reporting as ABC did yesterday.  Episodes like this have a major disruption on our entire society, costing our economy and our citizens billions of dollars in the process.
  • Worse than that, the fake media monolith is literally brainwashing a vast segment of our society that has no ability to filter the fakeness or think rationally.  These people live in a fantasy world in which the Russians, not Donald Trump, defeated Hillary Clinton, where it’s more important to be politically correct than it is to protect the lives of U.S. citizens, where socialism – which has failed all over the world for a century and resulted in the deaths of hundreds of millions of people – is the peachy idea for America’s future.
  • The fake media is destroying this country, dividing the population irreparably with a constant stream of false reports like Ross’s, driving our nation inexorably towards a second civil war, all in support of their Democrat Party benefactors.  If we can’t find a way to penalize their intentional brainwashing of the public within the bounds of the First Amendment, then the First Amendment will end up destroying the country.

The Kate Steinle Verdict Cements California’s Status As America’s Only 3rd World State

  • Can we accelerate that whole CalExit process, please? – A jury of 12 Californians found themselves unable to find Jose Zarate guilty of the murder Kate Steinle on a San Francisco Pier in 2015.  If you had any prior doubts that California has devolved into a pathetic 3rd world country, this decision should resolve them.
  • In a tweet, President Trump called the verdict “disgraceful,” but it’s worse than that.  The O.J. Simpson verdict was a disgrace to the legal system, but at least one could understand the racial grievances against the LAPD that were at play in that case.  No such grievances were at play in the Zarate case.  If anything, our society had been far to racially sensitive with this scumbag, who had been deported five times prior to his killing of Steinle because of his criminal nature, only to come right back into our country thanks to Barack Obama’s lax border security policies.
  • No, this verdict isn’t merely “disgraceful,” it’s un-American.  And if Californians no longer wish to be part of America and its legal system, this slap in the face of American values indicates that perhaps the time has come for America to oblige them.
  • Thursday was a really bad day for John Conyers.  First, he announced he would not be seeking re-election next year, in the hopes that that meaningless gesture would tamp down the growing pressure on him to resign.  When it became obvious by late morning that wasn’t going to do the trick, Conyers then let it leak that he would be announcing his retirement come January, a transparent delaying tactic made in the hopes that the whole controversy would have escaped the short attention span of the fake news media by then.  After all, what with the exposures of the likes of Mark Halperin, Charlie Rose, Matt Lauer and so many others still to come, the media has its own problems.
  • But no, that wasn’t going to work for the embattled Democrat sex-abusing “icon”.   So, early in the afternoon, he had his people announce that he had checked into the hospital due to “stress-related” problems, hoping to garner a little sympathy from the public, the fake media and his colleagues.  But man, even that didn’t work, and when that doesn’t work for an 88 year-old serial sex abuser, ain’t nothing gonna work.  Thus, by mid-afternoon, even San Fran Nan Pelosi understood that, and at a hastily-called press conference, the face of the Democrat Party, who had just four days before referred to the dean of the House in such glowing terms finally, at long last, called for his resignation.   For any Democrat, when even the soulless House Majority Leader is forced to come around and condemn you, you know you’ve got a problem.
  • But Conyers soldiered on into the late evening, having his wife accuse a group of fake reporters assembled outside the front door of the Conyers home in Detroit of racism, asking them if they do the same thing to white people?  Well, yeah, we all know they do frequently go after white people like this – the fake media is pretty much equal opportunity when it comes to staging such scenes –  but in this instance, the Conyers clan does appear to have a legitimate claim of racial bias.  The thing is, the claim would be better leveled at the leaders of the Democrat Party rather than fake journalists.
  • After all, Senator Al Franken found himself targeted by yet another accuser on Thursday – a military member who claims Franken groped her while on a USO tour in 2003 – and no one in the Democrat Party was calling for his resignation.  It is certainly reasonable for the Conyers family to ask why that is.  This makes six women now who have accused the former bad comic of some form of sexual assault, yet the Democrat Party refuses to do the right thing.
  • Not a single Democrat has called for Franken’s resignation in the two weeks since the first allegation of his bad behavior came to light.  Not one.  This in spite of the fact that we even have pictures of Franken sexually assaulting Leeann Tweeden.  If you’re John Conyers and his family, it would certainly seem reasonable to ask why the Democrats are targeting your family member while leaving the pasty-white Senator from Minnesota alone.

Just another day in California needs to leave America.

That is all.

Media Lapdogs – The Great Enablers of Sexual Abuse on Capitol Hill

  • BOOM!  As I’m writing this morning’s Update, Down Goes Lauer!  Down Goes Lauer!  Down Goes Lauer!  More on this tomorrow.
  • Melanie Sloan, a former top communications aide to 88 year-old Democrat Congressman John Conyers, told an interviewer on Tuesday of an instance in which Conyers called her to his office when he was in his underwear.  “I was pretty taken aback to see my boss half-dressed,” she told The Washington Post. “I turned on my heel and I left.”  Alrighty, then.  Ms. Sloan has leveled sexual harassment allegations at Conyers that date back to 1997, 20 years ago.
  • The unfortunately named Bob Weiner (no word if he hails from the Anthony Weiner clan), who served as Conyers’ communications director from 1994 to 2000, told a group of reporters assembled outside Conyers’ congressional office that, “Something else that people need to know: his closet is in his office right here. He changes clothes in his office.”  So that makes it all ok, then.  Right?
  • Ok, no it doesn’t.  Over the last 20 years I’ve visited dozens, perhaps hundreds of congressional offices, and can personally attest to the fact that pretty much all those offices have closets in them.  No doubt it is common for members of congress – men and women alike – to change clothes in their offices.  In fact, it has become increasingly common for some members of congress to actually live in their offices while in Washington, rather than go to the great expense of trying to keep a home in the nation’s capital.  And no doubt, staffers from time to time accidentally walk in on their boss while he or she is in the process of changing.  That’s the kind of oops moment that happens to everyone in life.
  • That is entirely different than a boss – any boss – asking his subordinate to come into his office, only to find him standing there in his underwear.  It is really not hard for any thinking person to make that simple distinction in circumstances.  But if your name is Bob Weiner, it’s apparently a very complex matter.
  • Look, John Conyers needs to be run out of congress on a rail.  The allegations by Ms. Sloan weren’t even the worst made against him this week.  The worst came from long-time fake journalist swamp creature Cokie Roberts, who smirkingly told her colleagues on ABC’s This Week that she and her fellow female fake journalist colleagues have “talked about for years: ‘Don’t get in the elevator with him,’ you know, and the whole every-female in the press corps knew that, right, don’t get in elevator with him.”  Wait, what?
  • This statement by Roberts is perhaps more damaging to the fake press corps than it is to Congressman Conyers himself.  So, every woman covering Capitol Hill has known for many years that, if you get on an elevator with this guy, you’re probably going to be sexually assaulted?  This isn’t funny, it’s not cute, it’s not something for any real journalist to be smirking about on national television.  If what Cokie says is true, this guy has been a menace to women for decades, given that it has been decades since Ms. Roberts was actually a reporter who actively walked the halls of the congressional office buildings.
  • Even more disgusting, Cokie’s comments mean that she believes that literally every woman in the Capitol Hill press corps has been actively covering up Conyers’ abuse of women for decades.  It raises the question of whether Conyers would have received similar cover from the women of the press if he were a Republican, instead of a fellow Democrat.
  • This lapdog behavior by all these fake journalists is one of the main reasons why many members of congress have been able to skate by for the last 22 years while paying out more than $18 million from a taxpayer-funded slush fund to settle complaints involving sexual harassment and other wrongdoing.
  • It’s important to remember that Conyers and Sen. Al Franken are just the tip of a vast iceberg here.  As more and more accusations of sexual abuse by members of congress come out, it will be important for the public to judge how long the abuse has been going on, and why the press never reported on it.
  • Because, just like in Hollywood, when you have a serial abuser running around, everyone knows about it, just like Cokie and all her female fake reporter colleagues have always known about John Conyers.

Just another day in everyone always knows America.

That is all.
