Saturday Scattershooting While Wondering Whatever Happened To That Delightful Jill Stein?

Today’s Campaign Update

  • Funniest Story of the Week – This is a little off the beaten path for the Campaign Update, but it’s too awesome to ignore.  Turns out that trying to stage a Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in China is a little more challenging than organizers had originally hoped.  Tone deaf singer Katy Perry was scheduled to perform at the event, but was unable to obtain a visa when Chinese officials were informed that, during a 2015 concert in Taipei, Ms. Perry wore a dress adorned with great big sunflowers.  Given that the sunflower has been adopted as a symbol by anti-government rebels, the government has decided that Ms. Perry is now persona non grata.  #Irony
  • California Dreamin’, er, nightmare – Public officials in California continue to get caught abusing their constituents, but somehow the situation out there just keeps getting worse.  The Desert Sun reports that two towns, Coachella and Indio, in a money-raising scheme, partnered with the law firm of Silver and Wright to prosecute their citizens for warrants outstanding on minor crimes.  The deal with the shysters provided that, not only would the offending citizen be on the hook for the fines related to their violations, they would also get billed for massive legal fees charged by the law firm.  Thus, one guy who owed a $900 fine for expanding his living room without a permit got hit with legal bills for $26,000. When he appealed, the legal bill went up to $42,000.  In Texas, city leaders who tried a scam like this one would soon have their butts severely kicked.  In California, they’ll probably all get re-elected.
  • ESPN Continues Its Assault On Middle America – Long-time ESPN host Scott Van Pelt proved this week that the folks at ESPN don’t care if anyone outside of the social justice warrior community watches their programming or not, having this to say about ordinary Americans who get upset about all the leftwing political commentary that continues to infest the dying network’s programming:

    “If you truly wanna boycott the NFL and you wanna boycott ESPN, the notion that some guy sitting out there, or gal, and they decide, ‘you know what, I’m gonna cut my entire cable package because ESPN gave an award on a made-up show in July because there’s no sports, to a woman who used to be a man, so I’m now not gonna have any cable TV at all and I’m gonna sit around at night and read books by candlelight like olden times because of that,’ that’s not happening. And if you did that, than you’re so dumb that I can’t even pray for you because you’re beyond hope.”  Alrighty then.

  • Someone Give Ted Lieu a Pacifier, Quick! – Terminally insipid California Democrat Cong. Ted Lieu tossed a fit on CNN Friday evening after Attorney General Jeff Sessions made some pretty funny opening remarks at a speech before the Federalist Society in Washington.  Sessions, mocking the Democrats’ unending Russia collusion fantasy play, started his speech by facetiously asking, “Is Ambassador Kislyak in the room?” Sessions asked the crowd. “Before I get started here. Any Russians? Anybody been to Russia? Got a cousin in Russia or something?”  Funny stuff, given the idiocy the AG has had to endure from Democrat sleazebags this year over a meeting he had fifteen months ago with the Russian Ambassador while still a Senator.
  • But Ted Lieu, who is never amused, was predictably not amused.  “Jeff Sessions still doesn’t get it,” Lieu told CNN’s fake host Wolf Blitzer, “He is not in trouble because he happened to be in places where there were Russians.”  Lieu of course ignores the fact that his Democrat colleagues on several congressional committees have tried to make a huge deal of the fact that, last November, Sessions did happen to be at the same reception as the Russian Ambassador.   But, to paraphrase the great Forrest Gump, Ted Lieu is as Ted Lieu does.  And that’s all I got to say about that.
  • One must be careful how one criticizes anything having to do with the Clintons if one wishes to remain healthy – Campaign workers on both the Bernie Sander and Hillary Clinton campaigns claimed on Friday they were sexually harassed by campaign officials, and were disillusioned with the fact that neither campaign appropriately addressed their situations.  But, the Clinton campaign worker, obviously in fear for her safety, hastily adds, “When I criticize the Hillary campaign, I am not criticizing her.”  Good catch there.  You should be ok, for now.

Just another day in leftwing lunacy America.

That is all.

The Fake Media Campaign To Protect Hillary Clinton Ramps Up To Full Force

Today’s Campaign Update

  • So, the narrative in the fake news media now is that it would somehow be inappropriate for the Justice Department to investigate President Trump’s “political opponent”, Hillary Rotten, er, Rodham Clinton.  That is the theme advanced by NBC’s Chuck Todd and two other fake reporters in a piece published a NBC.com on Tuesday.
  • To no one’s surprise, this piece – which simply advances the narrative being pushed jointly by the fake media at large and the rest of the Democrat Party – ignores the fact that as of today, Hillary Clinton is in fact no one’s political opponent.  She’s not running for anything, and has announced that she does not plan to run for anything in the future.  Thus, labeling her as the President’s “political opponent” is just a canard designed to make this life-long criminal immune from any prosecution at all.
  • The piece also ignores the fact that two of Hillary Clinton’s looming scandals germinated long before the 2016 election campaign.  The Uranium One scandal and her scandal involving illegal distribution of classifed information via her private email server date to her time as Secretary of State, and the years prior to that.  An immense amount of evidence exists in the public record today that she likely did in fact violate many federal laws related to these two scandals, and in fact most likely would have long ago been prosecuted if she were not a member of the nation’s protected political class.
  • Despite Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ hemming and hawing on Tuesday about whether there is sufficient evidence around either of these major scandals to warrant the appointment of a special counsel to investigate them (more on that in a moment), there would nothing at all improper were the Department of Justice to conduct a thorough investigation into a scandal (Uranium One) that ended with the sale of 20% of our nation’s uranium resources to Russian companies.  And the thought that Hillary Clinton or anyone else who serves in any presidential administration is somehow immune from prosecution for illegally sharing national security secrets on public servers is so absurd as to not deserve serious comment.  It’s abject nonsense that, taken to its logical conclusion, means that Todd and his fellow Democrats with press passes believe that the Fainting Felon is simply above the law, and that the country can have no national security at all.
  • The third major scandal in which The Coughing Crook is currently entangled involves the fact – and we know it to be an absolute fact at this point – that her campaign and the DNC colluded with Fusion GPS, a former British spy, and Russian agents to compile the fake Trump Dossier during the presidential campaign.  To contend, as Todd and his fellow fake journalists do, that Mrs. Clinton should somehow be exempt from the same investigation into Russian collusion that has now been targeting the Trump campaign for the last 6 months is bizarrely stupid and simply defies logic.
  • But hey, when have fake journalists like Chuck Todd ever allowed pesky things like facts and logic get in the way of their shilling for the Clintons and Obamas?  It’s how these people make their livings.
  • Now, let’s talk about Mr. Sessions’ unwillingness to say, in an exchange with Republican Rep. Jim Jordan during his testimony yesterday, whether or when he will name a special counsel to investigate all of the Pantsuit Princess’s alleged crimes.  While that answer is frustrating to those who want to see justice served, it’s important to understand the full context in which the Attorney General is operating.  In addition to having to determine whether or not sufficient factual evidence exists against the accused to warrant an investigation by a special counsel, DOJ must also determine that such an investigation cannot be adequately performed within the Department of Justice itself.
  • One major reason why a special counsel was appointed to investigation the whole media/Democrat Trump/Russia collusion fantasy was because it allegedly involved the sitting President who had appointed Mr. Sessions to become Attorney General and Rosenstein as his Deputy.  That is a clear conflict of interest that could only be avoided with the appointment of a special counsel.
  • No similar conflict exists where Hillary Clinton is concerned.  Thus, assuming this isn’t all being done just for show, General Sessions could well decide that a special counsel is not necessary because a full and fair investigation can be conducted at DOJ itself.
  • This is how the system is set up to work, like it or not.  All the rest of us can do is wait and see what happens, hoping against hope that Mr. Sessions can finally prove himself to be worthy of the job he holds.

Just another day in cleaning out the DC Swamp ain’t easy America.

Sessions’ Involvement of Rosenstein Dooms The Preliminary Uranium One Inquiry to Failure

Today’s Campaign Update

  • I have some good news, and I have some bad news for you all today.
  • The first bit of good news is that scientists have announced that they have discovered “the world’s oldest wine” in fragments of clay jars at an archaeological site near Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia.  Upon hearing of the find, Wine Spectator immediately awarded the 8,000 year old wine a grade of 95, saying it has  hints of must with little flecks of clay throughout and a decidedly vinegary finish.
  • There is no good news for Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore.  If you’re still out there defending Mr. Moore, despite the allegations that keep piling up against him, you might want to take a step back.  Yes, this stinks of a political hit job by the fake journalists at the Washington Post.  Yes, the latest accuser’s decision to associate herself with the despicable Gloria Allred is a red flag.  Yes, all of these allegations happened a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.  But…
  • But despite all of those warning signals and red flags and evil lawyers, you need to keep in mind that the original story in the WaPo did not rely solely on the statements from the four women involved.  The reporters who filed the report also talked to dozens of other locals, many of whom told the same story of then-County Attorney/District Attorney Roy Moore dating a series of girls who were still in high school.  If the spectre of a guy in his 30s hanging around high school dances and diners where high school students congregated or worked at the time picking up girls isn’t enough to tip you off, there’s also the fact that, in his now-famous interview with Sean Hannity last Friday, Moore would not deny dating high school girls while in his 30s, repeating a Bill Clinton-ish non-denial that it “would have been outside of my normal behavior.”  Folks, that means “yes”.
  • And if all of that isn’t enough to tip you off that something very odd was going on with Mr. Moore back during the Carter Administration, then consider that the tireless Donald Trump supporter Judge Jeanine Pirro, on Hannity’s TV show last night, went completely off on Judge Moore, based on the reality that we now have five completely unconnected women independently telling contemporaneous stories of the same odd behavior.
  • Mr. Moore may still win his election because the WaPo has long ago surrendered the last shred of credibility with most of the people of Alabama, but if this were a court case, he’d pretty much be toast right now.
  • But the big news of the day on Monday came late in the afternoon, when it was reported that our thus-far useless Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, may have finally received enough pressure from GOP members of congress and others to do the right thing in the Uranium One scandal.  Maybe.  The report – which must be taken with a grain of salt since it also comes from the WaPo – claims that Mr. Sessions is “considering” the appointment of a second special counsel to investigate what was an obvious sale of 20% of America’s uranium assets to Russian interests in exchange for well over $100 million in bribes…er, “contributions” to the Clinton Foundation from those same Russian entities.
  • But don’t get overly excited yet.  Even if the WaPo story is true, all it really says is that General Sessions has directed some DOJ “investigators” to look into the various allegations of wrongdoing and report back to him and his highly suspect Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein with recommendations as to whether a special counsel is warranted for this case.  Note that it took the eager Mr. Rosenstein about 3 seconds to appoint his old running buddy Robert Mueller to “investigate” allegations of Russian collusion when they targeted a sitting President, but we must have a formal, weeks-long preliminary “investigation” when the allegations involve the Clintons and Obamas.  But that’s not the only problem with Rosenstein’s involvement in this review.
  • We must also remember that Rosenstein, at the time the Russians were throwing millions into the Clinton Foundation and allegedly bribing all sorts of other people to get their uranium concession approved by the Obama Administration, was actually a U.S. attorney who was involved in the original fake investigation of the matter, along with …wait for it…oh, you gotta wait for this one…none other than ROBERT MUELLER, who was then the Director of the FBI.
  • So now, while Mueller, thanks to Rosenstein’s appointment, is occupied with conducting what many view as a slow-rolling coup d’etat in his special counsel “investigation”, the Attorney General has decided to also involve Rosenstein, who participated in the fake investigation of Uranium One six years ago, in the decision-making over whether to conduct a real investigation into the matter.  I’ll give you one guess as to what Rosenstein’s recommendation to the AG will inevitably be.
  • So, the good news is that Mr. Sessions has decided to at least make a token effort to do the right thing in at least one of the various major scandals swirling around Hillary Clinton.  The bad news is that, unless Sessions suddenly finds the previously-undisplayed guts to overrule his swamp creature Deputy AG, a token is all this effort will be.  A real Attorney General who was really interested in doing his job would force Rosenstein to recuse himself from this inquiry, citing his obvious conflicts of interest.

Just another day in cleaning out the DC Swamp ain’t easy America.

The Fake News Media Is Poisoning Our Society

Today’s Campaign Update

  • The fake journalists at the Washington Post took a day off from scandal-mongering and published a hilariously absurd puff piece about the poor, poor Podesta brothers, John and Tony, and their fall from grace.  The Post’s fake reporters appear to be on the verge of immolating themselves over the fact that Tony Podesta’s high-powered lobbying firm is apparently closing its doors on November 15, as its principal has become at least nominally entangled in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s “investigation”.  I’ll believe that Podesta is actually in jeopardy in any way whenever charges are actually filed, which of course has yet to happen.
  • As for John Podesta, the Post portrays him as the quiet brother, the brother who would never, never, ever do anything wrong or unethical, despite the fact that the public has been treated to hundreds of his emails that indicate otherwise.  John Podesta, of course, was campaign chairman for the pathetic Hillary Clinton fiasco, and anyone who voluntarily entangles themselves with the Clintons gets the sort of reputational stains they deserve.
  • Speaking of the Mueller investigation, which is supposedly about allegations that the Trump campaign attempted to collude with Russia during the 2016 elections, President Trump chatted with Vladimir Putin for a few minutes at the APEC meetings on Sunday, and all the fake journalists in our fake news media predictably went berserk.  The President was especially slammed for saying that he believes Putin means what he says when he denies having made any effort to influence the U.S. election.
  • Mr. Trump later clarified that statement, saying that, while he believes Mr. Putin sincerely believes what he says, that doesn’t mean that other Russian elements did not spread propaganda during our elections, something they’ve been doing for decades.  Given that no one has presented the public with a shred of evidence personally implicating Putin in any of the Russian influence allegations, that is a very reasonable position for the President to take.
  • The President also very effectively responded to the uproar with a series of tweets, where he now has 280 characters instead of just 140 to make his points:
    • “Met with President Putin of Russia who was at  meetings. Good discussions on Syria. Hope for his help to solve, along with China the dangerous North Korea crisis. Progress being made.”
    • “When will all the haters and fools out there realize that having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. There always playing politics – bad for our country. I want to solve North Korea, Syria, Ukraine, terrorism, and Russia can greatly help!”
    • “Does the Fake News Media remember when Crooked Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, was begging Russia to be our friend with the misspelled reset button? Obama tried also, but he had zero chemistry with Putin.”
  • No rational person would find anything unreasonable in any of that, but our fake national news media has collectively portrayed it as the brayings of a mad jackass.
  • We are in a very, very dangerous place in our country’s relationship with Russia.  We have an entire political party – the Democrats – virtually our entire news media establishment, and rancid Republican war-mongers like John McCain and Lindsey Graham, all of whom appear to have a goal of pushing the United States into a shooting war with Russia.  They have all been trying to push us down that road for several years now, and appear to be literally insane with rage that our current POTUS thinks it would be a better idea to form a constructive relationship with such a powerful adversary.
  • Given that President Trump is correct when he says that Russia’s interests are aligned with American interests when it comes to terrorism, Syria, North Korea and other matters, there is absolutely no reason why our country should be constantly assuming the hostile posture towards Russia that the Democrats/media/RINO war-mongers promote.
  • Our national news media is poisoning our society.  They are endangering our future, and the futures of our children and our grandchildren with their constant collusion with the war-mongers and other swamp creatures in our government.  We are going to soon reach a crisis point at which the threat they represent must somehow be dealt with effectively, or we will end up in a conflict that need not happen.

Just another day in poisonous fake news media America.

That is all.

The Democrat/Media Narrative From Tuesday’s Elections Jumps The Gun On Reality

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The remake of “Murder on the Orient Express” opens in theaters across America today, because somebody in Hollywood thought the American public just could not live without another tired remake of another tired concept movie.  Can another tired remake of “Death on the Nile” or “Clue” be far behind?  That is, if producers can find any actors who haven’t been taken down by harassment or pedophilia scandal to star in them.
  • Speaking of Hollywood scandals, we have a story out today that an actress named Allison Mack – who I’ve never heard of, but who acted in a TV series called “Smallville” – has spent her spare time the past few years recruiting as many as 25 women into a slave cult.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Not to downplay the ogre-like behavior of Harvey Weinstein or Kevin Spacey, but dang, this little gal has really gone the extra mile into the world of depravity, hasn’t she?  I don’t even want to see how some other Hollywood figure will top this one, but can there be any doubt that someone soon will?
  • And speaking of depraved behavior, the Democrats and their agents in the fake news media have very predictably decided to try to convince the public that Tuesday’s election results somehow mean that the beleaguered, disorganized and leaderless Democrat Party is once again ascendant, and will inevitably take over both houses of congress in 2018, impeach President Donald Trump (I never get tired of typing those three words) and elect some Communist like Bernie Sanders or Fauxcahontas in 2020.  The Democrat/Fake media joint talking points are all extrapolated from the Democrats regaining the governorship in very Democrat-dominated New Jersey, holding the governorship in pretty decidedly Democrat-dominated Virginia, and voters in the very Blue state of Maine voting to expand Medicaid in that state.  Alrighty then.
  • Look, there is no denying that Tuesday was indeed a bad day for the GOP.  But let’s be honest here, the landscape of this particular election day was heavily tilted in the Democrats’ favor.  Chris Christie, the out-going Governor of New Jersey, had basically doomed the chances of any Republican holding onto that office with his piggish behavior in office over the last two years.  There was just no chance it was going to happen.
  • In Maine, the Democrats were successful in convincing voters that expanding Medicaid would be some sort of solution to the rapidly rising healthcare insurance premiums caused by the imploding Obamacare system.  Watch what happens in 2018 and 2020, after voters figure out that that was just another in a very long line of Democrat lies about their healthcare system.  Then again, probably nothing much will happen, since the vast majority of Democrat voters are little more than sheep who will just bite on whatever batch of false talking points the Democrat Party rolls out next.
  • But the big focus by the fake news media has been on Virginia, where establishment Republican Ed Gillespie lost to Democrat Ralph Northam by almost 9% of the vote, a whole 3% more than the margin the Coughing Crook ran up over Mr. Trump in 2016.   It is that 3% difference that the Democrat/Fake media axis have seized upon as clear proof that voters all over the country have turned on President Trump and that the Democrats will once again become the ruling party in Washington after the 2018 elections.
  • This “analysis”, such as it is, ignores several things:  First, Gillespie ran away from President Trump in his campaign, choosing instead to run as a sort of Jeb! Bush mushy RINO.  That obviously did not play well with the state’s Republican base, and likely dampened voter turnout for the GOP on a rainy election day that would have normally played to the Republicans’ advantage.
  • Second, Jill Vogel, the GOP candidate for Lieutenant Governor who ran her campaign based on Trump’s issues of law enforcement and secure borders, lost by exactly the 6 point margin that the President lost by a year ago.  Had Gillespie’s milquetoast campaign not turned off so many voters, she would likely have had a real shot at winning.
  • Third, the media-promoted thought that the leaderless and rudderless Democrat Party has suddenly been transformed into an electoral juggernaut that is going to just steamroll back into  power 12 months from now deserves no serious consideration.  The Democrats remain in complete disarray, their National Committee cannot raise money, and the faces of their national party remain the thoroughly toxic Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.
  • Fourth, while the playing field of Virginia, New Jersey and Maine this past Tuesday was heavily stacked in the Democrats’ favor, that will not be the case in 2018.  Twelve months from now, the Democrats will be defending 25 of 34 Senate seats up for re-election, including 10 in states where the President won by double-digit margins in 2016, and the number of truly vulnerable GOP house seats remains at a very low level.
  • The Republicans do remain vulnerable heading into the mid-terms, however, mainly due to the complete lack of getting anything important done in the U.S. Senate.  A continued failure by the GOP majority there to act on Obamacare, tax reform and other issues important to the party’s base voters could end up creating a wave election for the Democrats next year.
  • But that is far from the fait accompli that is being currently promoted by the Democrat/Fake media propaganda axis.  A year is forever in politics and the Republicans are really good at screwing things up, but projecting last Tuesday’s results into a theme that they already have is just another false narrative from the Usual Suspects.

Just another day in Democrat/Fake media propaganda axis America.

That is all.

The Pantsuit Princess’s Presidential Pursuit Persists

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The twits at MSNBC just cannot stand the fact that the Texas mass killer was in fact stopped from killing even more people by a good guy with a gun.  Fake journalist Chuck Todd and some fake talking head named Yamiche Alcindor intentially lied about the heroic actions of Stephen Willeford, who chased the killer barefoot and shot him twice with his own AR-15 rifle before the killer was able to flee in his car.
  • Alcindor said “The shooter was not stopped, there was not a big gun fight … and I think there needs to be a fact check on how this got stopped in the first place.”  Todd responded with “The narrative here as you saw with Mike Huckabee and the president is a little bit off the rails.”  Both statements are intentional lies, as Willeford’s actions have been confirmed by multiple law enforcement officials at this point.  But hey, this is MSNBC we’re talking about here, so lying is just what they do.
  • Speaking of shameless liars, The UK Daily Mirror reports this morning that The Most Corrupt Woman in America is in negotiations with former British spy Christopher Steele – who paid agents of the Russian government to supply phony dirt for the infamous “Trump Dossier” – to purchase a …wait for it…wait for it…SECOND FAKE TRUMP DOSSIER!  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.
  • No doubt the scorned Pantsuit Princess plans to promote the pusillanimous piece of poop as the pretense for another pursuit of the presidency in 2020.  Hey, it would be a better rationale for running than she presented to the public in 2016.
  • If you think I’m joking about the Fainting Felon making another run in 2020, well, think again.  Yesterday she took to her Twitter account to take credit for Tuesday’s Democrat election wins in Virginia, New Jersey and elsewhere.
  • “Last night was a great reminder of what’s possible when we come together and fight for what we believe in,” Clinton tweeted Wednesday. “So I wanted to take a few minutes to celebrate the extraordinary successes of a few groups I – and Onward Together – proudly fight alongside.”  Of course, it is vastly more likely Democrats were able to score these wins in what are very Blue states by denying any association with the Clinton Crime World, but that’s not the point.  The point is that the Coughing Crook remains power mad, and she will never voluntarily give up on her Quixotic quest. And that, folks, is fantastic news for Republicans everywhere.
  • Not to be outdone, good ol’ Joe Biden, who will be 77 in 2020, decided it was he, not the Mendacious Megalomaniac, who deserved full credit for all the wins, sending this note to his followers:  “Yesterday, millions of Americans around the country used their votes to demand, full-throated, a different kind of leadership.  And last night, nearly every single candidate that I endorsed at your recommendation was elected.”
  • Yes, it was all because the Democrat candidates who won had received the endorsement of a guy who has been wrong about literally everything that has happened in the world for the last 40 years.  And here they all thought it was due to their own hard work and the efforts of their actual supporters.  My goodness.
  • This outbreak of Dueling Banjos between two of the most tone-deaf politicians who have ever subjected themselves on the American public is music  to the ears of Republicans who have been concerned about the potential for the Democrats to field an actual appealing candidate for the presidency in 2020.  If the Party of the Future is just going to roll out Clinton, Biden and Bernie Sanders as its presidential field, Donald Trump can breathe a sigh of relief.

Just another day in Hillary isn’t going away quietly America.

That is all.

What A Sad Existence It Must Be To Fake The News For CNN And The NYTimes

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Actor Keven Spacey, who has apparently had a habit of preying on young boys over the last 30-plus years, played the traditional “I’m sick” card yesterday, checking into the very same rehab facility used by Harvey Weinstein.  Weinstein managed to last a whole week before he just couldn’t take anymore curing and decided to declare himself “cured” and fly the coop.  Of course, Spacey is an actor, not a mere producer like Weinstein, so we can expect Spacey to keep up this facade of seeking help for quite a bit longer, because that’s what actors who prey on children do.
  • We can always hope. – The Hollywood Reporter runs a piece this morning by some guy named Stephen Galloway titled “Harassment, Scandal and the Media: Is a Hollywood Witch Hunt Brewing?” My reaction to that is dang, let’s hope so, since there sure do seem to be a lot of witches running around Hollywood, assaulting women and little boys.
  • The writer’s big concern is that, golly, the bad ol’ fake news media – a news media that had huddled happily in Tinseltown’s hip pocket for the last century – might not exercise proper care and will start airing accusations at all those innocent people as well as the guilty.  Obviously this guy hasn’t heard that the New York Times actually had the goods on Weinstein in 2004, and chose to sit on the story rather than upset its advertising revenue, or that Ronan Farrow was turned down with his own story on Weinstein by NBC before finding a home for it elsewhere.  Or that fake news media icon Barbara Walters viciously attacked Corey Feldman when he appeared on The View in 2013 to talk about his and the late Corey Haim’s experience with Hollywood’s pedophile mafia.
  • To this point, the fake news media has been far more interested in covering up for Hollywood’s monsters than in carelessly pointing fingers at anyone who is innocent.  And let’s be honest, the same is true of all those actors, directors and producers who have piously lined up to claim “I didn’t know” after having worked closely with Weinstein, Spacey and other monsters for the last 30 years.  They were all more than happy to hide the monsters in their midst as long as the monsters might benefit their careers in some way.
  • This….is CNN. – The fake reporters and editors and hosts at CNN are so anxious to portray President Donald Trump as an incompetent boob that they resorted on Monday to intentionally editing a video of him feeding Koi fish with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in a way to fasely portray him as breaking protocol.  The video, as edited, shows the President following the Prime Minister’s lead in spooning food from a box into the Koi pond, and then shows Mr. Trump pouring the remainder of the food from the box, as CNN’s commentators claim he just got tired of spooning the food.  The unedited video, of course, shows that the President was simply following the Prime Minister’s lead in emptying the box after a few spoonfuls had gone into the pond.
  • How sad an existence must it be to get up out of bed every morning believing that it is your job as an employee of CNN to intentionally mislead the American public?  Sad!
  • Wait, what? – Speaking of sad existences, Brett Stephens, the NYTimes’ latest fake conservative op/ed mascot, told the nitwits who host “Morning Joe” on Monday that conservatives can’t cite a “single instance” of anyone “us[ing] their guns to protect their liberties.”  This statement ironically came less than 24 hours after someone using his guns protected not only his, but a bunch of other peoples’ civil liberties by shutting down the leftist Antifa disciple who was wantonly killing people in a Baptist church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.
  • It is not surprising that Mr. Stephens is not aware of that element of the story – he does work for the NYTimes, after all – or that he is unaware of the literally thousands of instances of armed citizens protecting their homes, families and civil liberties from assault by thugs that take place each year around the country.  Nor is it surprising that no one on the Morning Joe lineup of lunatics had the presence of mind to correct him, since they’re all locked in the NYTimes fake news bubble themselves.  The only surprising thing about any of this really is that the NYTimes’ editors still feel the need to hire liberal idiots to pretend to be “conservative” writers on the fake newspaper’s op/ed pages.  Why continue a facade that no one believes?
  • Oh, wait – that literally describes the daily modus operandi of our country’s entire national news media.  Nevermind.

Just another day in shamelessly Fake News Media America.

That is all.

How To Keep Up With Trump Change, i.e., Why Whatfinger > Drudge

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • I get a lot of questions from readers and friends, but here’s one I get frequently:  How do you keep up with everything that’s going on these days?  That question is almost inevitably followed with, How do you decide what to write about each day?
  • These are great questions, because there is no doubt that the news – both real news being generated by public policy, world events and the incredible pace of radical change being implemented by the Trump Presidency, and fake news being generated by myriad false narratives coming from the Democrats and their agents in the fake news media – moves at a rapid pace, a far faster pace than we have ever experienced before.  I think some readers think there is some sort of magic involved here, but in reality, it’s just a matter of getting up early and using the right tools.
  • I get up at 5:00 every weekday morning – I try to sleep in until 6:00 on weekends – and start my process of scanning the news.  I turn on the TV, and keep it mainly on “Fox and Friends,” not necessarily because I enjoy it all that much, but mainly because I find the morning programs on CNN and MSNBC to be pretty much unwatchable at this point.  Joe and Mika are just a couple of TMZ wannabes these days, and the hosts on CNN are two of the most singularly dimwitted people I’ve ever seen in my entire life.  Expecting to obtain any real, honest information out of any of these people is the errand of a fool, and I’m too old to spend any time running that kind of errand anymore.  Sorry.
  • But in reality, I’m a reader, and I get most of my news input online, and the vast majority of that is initiated from just a couple of places:  Twitter, and my favorite news aggregation site, Whatfinger.com.
  • I started using Twitter back in 2011 after a very smart person who I highly respect told me she that was where gets pretty much all of her news.  Prior to that, I had considered Twitter to be a toy and a waste of time, but I figured hey, if she’s using it maybe I need to give it a shot, too.  So I established an account and was immediately hooked.  Twitter has a lot of drawbacks, not least of which is that people tend to lose their social filters on social media, but when managed correctly through the use of lists and muting and/or blocking of annoying riff-raff, becomes a valuable tool for quickly getting up to speed.
  • Where news aggregation is concerned, most people immediately default to the Drudge Report, and I did that too, until about a year ago.  I can’t remember how or why I first became aware of Whatfinger.com, but I imagine I just stumbled across it during one of my morning news feeding frenzies.  I know it was in the final days prior to the election because I remember how glad I felt to come across it at such an intense time.
  • Don’t get me wrong here:  Drudge is still great, and everyone should be eternally grateful to Matt Drudge, because in the mid-90s he, along with Fox News, permanently destroyed the ability of the Democrats and their agents in the fake news media to completely control the narrative, tenor and slant on the news we all consume each day.
  • But in our new world, where the big story changes multiple times almost every day, Whatfinger is just better.  The first reason for this is just the volume of the content.  I’m a guy who never, never ever goes beyond the landing page of any aggregation site or Google search.  Don’t have time for it, seldom find anything useful or current beyond Page 1.  On its landing page, Whatfinger always links to at least three times as many current, relevant stories as you will find on the Drudge Report, and they appear to be updated on pretty much an hourly basis.
  • The second reason is organization.  The Drudge model is just to throw links to about a hundred stories or so up onto his landing page in a pretty much random order.  Whatfinger groups its stories into a series of specific categories.  If you want opinion columns, here’s the section.  If you want videos, they’re over here.  Breaking news is at the top.  Fake news from CNN and MSNBC is even organized into its own convenient grouping for all the gluttons for punishment who access Whatfinger.  A real time-saver.
  • The third reason is curation.  Again, Drudge is almost purely a collection of links described with the story’s headline.  Whatfinger not only gives you the headline, on its breaking news and many other current stories, its editors also provide a brief description of the story’s content, including its hilarious “Barf Alert” warning on stories that are particularly idiotic and/or slanted.  Again, this saves time, and time is extremely valuable when you’re trying to put out a relevant 800-word piece by 7:00 each weekday morning, a little later on weekends.
  • Keeping up with this incredibly rapid pace of change requires identifying and using the best tools.  I use several, but if you’re a reader like me, there is no better, more useful tool out there right now than Whatfinger.com.  Trust me.

Nobody Nails Democrat Sleaze Like Donald Trump

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Thursday’s under-the-bus tossing of Hillary Clinton by long-time Clinton sycophant and Democrat political hack Donna Brazile is just the latest sign that the Democrat Party has finally had enough of the Clintons.  After a quarter century of defending and deflecting and prevaricating about Clintonian corruption, it is suddenly becoming ok, almost trendy, to say negative things about the woman who has brought nothing but shame and destruction to what was once a clear majority national party, but is now a dying, minority, regional, amateurish political operation.
  • Ms. Brazile’s admission that the Clinton Campaign conspired with Debbie Wasserman-Schulz and other DNC leaders to rig the party’s primary contests against Bernie Sanders is also a clear indicator that there is much more Clinton/DNC-related sleaze about to ooze out into the public domain, especially when one considers that Ms. Brazile herself played a significant role in that rigging process.  With her “tell-all” book, Brazile is just getting a jump on the oozing.
  • This is a first.  The Clintons have always slunk through scandals in the past by convincing everyone around them that they’ll all be okay so long as they just deny everything and accuse the opposition of the same unethical behavior.  It’s the Saul Alinsky strategy of “deny, deflect and project.”  Hey, it’s always worked, given that their agents in the fake news media would always circle the wagons around them and refuse to investigate or report on any wrongdoing in any real way.   But now the code of silence has been broken, and with scandals whirling all around her, The Most Corrupt Woman In America has to be wondering which of her sleazy hacks will become the Family’s next Fredo.
  • Finally, Ms. Brazile’s admissions tell us that, once again, Donald Trump was right.  He spent all of 2016 telling us that the Democrat primaries were rigged against the Commie, Bernie Sanders, to which all the fake journalists and Democrat hacks like Brazile called him a liar.  How many times do we have to see this process play out, in which Trump makes an assertion, the Democrats and their fake media agents respond by calling him a liar, and then we find out Trump was absolutely right before we all realize that if Trump accuses the Democrats of some bad behavior, it’s a very safe bet he’s telling the truth?
  • The clearest current example of this is the “investigation” by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, which was supposedly about allegations that the Trump campaign somehow “colluded” with Russia to influence the 2016 election, but which has very predictably boiled down to the issuance of indictments of several functionaries on various process violations.  Failure to disclose certain political activities; tax evasion; money laundering; lying to investigators about what day a meeting took place – process violations like this, essentially unrelated to the original allegation, is what Special Counsel investigations always end up hanging their hat on.
  • From the beginning in 2016, President Trump has unwaveringly told us that the allegations that his campaign colluded with the Russians are a fantasy, an excuse for losing made up out of whole cloth by the Clintons and their media supporters.  To this point, a full year after this fantasy play began, there has still not been even a smidgen of evidence revealed that indicates any wrongdoing in this regard by anyone related to the Trump campaign, even by those who were indicted on Monday.
  • On the other hand, what we have found out is that the Clinton Campaign and the DNC clearly did collude with the Russians during the campaign, shelling out millions of dollars to fund the phony “Trump Dossier” that was compiled largely with lies provided by agents of the Russian government.  If Trump is right as he usually is, we will also no doubt soon discover that James Comey’s FBI used this fake Dossier as its basis for seeking a FISA warrant that allowed it to put members of the Trump campaign under surveillance while the election was going on.
  • It is key to remember that that surveillance then led to the hundreds of probably-illegal umasking requests by various high Obama officials in that Administration’s final months.  Thus, if things go true to form, the truth is going to ultimately be revealed that it wasn’t just the Clintons colluding with the Russians, it was the Obama Administration as well.
  • There is absolutely no reason to think that things will not go true to form here.  Every time he has alleged Democrat-related sleaze in the past, it has always eventually been revealed that Donald Trump was 100% correct.  If you’re still sitting there thinking that this case will turn out to be any different, well, you should probably think again.

Just another day in Trump always turns out to be right America.

That is all.
