Trump Is President, Hillary Isn’t. Be Thankful For That.

Today’s Campaign Update

  • Given that it’s the day before Thanksgiving and The Campaign Update will be taking tomorrow off, it seems like a good time to list some of the many things I’m thankful for in the world of politics and public policy.
  • The first one is easy:  I’m thankful that Hillary Clinton isn’t the president.  It’s bad enough that she remains in the public eye, still doing everything she can to destroy our nation’s democracy, still cloying and grasping in a desperate effort to remain politically viable, but she isn’t president, and the nation is safe from that prospect for at least another 3 years.
  • Second, I’m thankful Donald J. Trump is the President.  Thankful for the roaring economy his roll-backs of Obama regulations have created.  Thankful for the record-high closes in the stock markets on almost a daily basis.  Thankful for his refusal to bend to the will of the fake news media or buy into the dictates of political correctness.  Thankful for how crazy he drives liberals each and every day.  Thankful for his refusal to bow to the leaders of other countries.  Thankful for the sense of class and style he and First Lady Melania Trump have returned to the White House.  Thankful to have a President who is simply willing to celebrate Christmas again.  Thankful that he Never.  Stops.  Tweeting.
  • Third, I’m thankful to the leaders of the Democrat Party, such as they are, and their utter failure to learn a single damn lesson from their humiliations in the 2016 elections.  Rather than take those humiliations as an opportunity to moderate their policies and clean the corruption from their ranks, the Democrats have instead doubled down on the leftist radicalism that has taken them from the clear national majority they enjoyed as recently as 2010 to a shrinking, minority regional party centered in large cities along the East and West coasts.  Their party leadership remains a motley collection of corrupt fools, their anti-Trump and anti-middle American rhetoric grows more shrill with each passing day.  Cool.
  • Fourth, I’m thankful for the fake reporters, fake editors, and fake talking heads who infest the fake national news media.  Like the Democrat Party they all loyally serve, they have learned nothing from their own rejection in 2016, their double standards, biases and outright fabrications so blatantly obvious that no thinking person believes anything they have to say. Which is good for America, since there is no national mainstream media outlet that can be trusted anymore.
  • Fifth, I’m thankful to James Comey and Hillary Clinton for their invention of the whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy play.  No, really, I am, despite the abuses of power that are obvious in the Robert Mueller investigation.  But that special counsel investigation is, intentionally or not, leading inexorably to the final downfall of not President Trump, but of Bill and Hillary Clinton.  Without that special counsel, we would not now know that it was the Clinton Campaign and the DNC that funded the fake Trump Dossier.  Without that special counsel, we would still be in the dark about the role James Comey’s FBI played in all of that as well.  Without that special counsel, the whole Uranium One scandal would still be a secret buried in the bowels of hidden Justice Department records.  Yeah, I’m thankful for Russia Collusion, because that fantasy has led to the revelation of so much reality, with much, much more to come.
  • Finally, I’m thankful for all the women and former child actors who have been brave enough to come out in recent weeks and out so many monsters in Hollywood, the fake news media, and now in politics.  Intentionally or not, they are  showing America that the country’s leftwing institutions have long been cesspits of sexual depravity and abuse.  This is a reckoning that has been a long time coming, and is likely just getting started.
  • I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving.  The Campaign Update will return on Friday.

Just another day in so much to be thankful for 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.

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.

The Great Unwinding Of The Russia Collusion Fantasy Has Begun

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Well, now we know, without any lingering doubts at all, why the Democrat Party and their facilitators in the national news media responded so viciously and, frankly, insanely to last November’s election results.  I mean, we basically knew that The Most Corrupt Woman in America was engaging in all sorts of shady stuff during the campaign – that’s just her nature.  She’s utterly corrupt, pathologically dishonest, and felt completely entitled to become the 45th president of the United States after being jilted at the altar by Democrat voters in 2008.  She totally would rather lie and cheat than win an election the old-fashioned way, which totally explains why she’d spend millions of dollars having a fake dossier made up on her opponent than bend so low as to actually go to Podunksville, Wisconsin to campaign.
  • So we knew in our hearts – and I speculated last year – that she probably paid for the Trump Dossier, but we just didn’t know it for sure.  Now we do.  Question answered.
  • And we knew that there had been all sorts of lawlessness going on during the Obama Administration – the IRS scandal, the utter corruption in the Justice Department and the FBI, Hillary Clinton’s using her position at the State Department to massively enrich herself by selling influence, the sham investigation by James Comey related to the Clinton email server, the shipping of $1.6 billion in U.S. and foreign currency to the terrorist supporting regime in Iran, all the patently unconstitutional executive orders related to immigration and Obamacare, and on and on and on.
  • We knew it was all going on, but had no law enforcement officials willing to investigate and prosecute any of it, and no honest reporting on any of it from the fake news media who all thought Obama was the second coming of John F. Kennedy, so we weren’t sure of all the details.  Now we know many of the details, with much, much more to come.
  • Speaking of more details, Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, let another key detail slip on CNN yesterday morning as he was being fake interviewed by the hopelessly vapid fake news host Alisyn Camerota.  Mr. Clapper, in the middle of one of his confused, rambling answers, told Ms. Camerota the stunning news that the Obama Administration had opened a “counterintelligence investigation” into the Trump campaign before James Comey got ahold of the fake Trump Dossier that had been financed by the DNC and the Clinton campaign.  Ms. Camerota is so hopelessly dimwitted that she just let that amazing tidbit of information pass without asking a followup question.
  • A real, actual journalist would have heard that answer and said, “wait, what?  Did you just tell our audience that a sitting president of the United States of America was investigating the likely nominee of the opposition party before his FBI got hold of that dossier?  When was that investigation opened?  Why was it opened?  On what factual information did the FBI think it needed to investigate one of President Obama’s political opponents?”  Yeah, none of those questions were asked, and the moment was lost.  Now, Mr. Clapper will lay low for awhile and make up a better story for future interviews.
  • But this is just one more detail that we didn’t know before, a detail that helps us understand why the Democrats and their supporters in the fake news media reacted so insanely after Donald Trump won the election.  All these people knew about all the criminal behavior that Democrats had engaged in during the Obama years, and all these people assumed they were safe, because Hillary Clinton was going to win the election.
  • That’s why you saw so many ashen faces, even open weeping, among the fake news people on CNN, MSNBC and the major networks as the results started coming in from Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania on Election Night.  It’s why Hillary Clinton was incapable of coming out to speak to her loyal supporters once the results were known, and had to send her evil toady John Podesta down to shoo them away instead.
  • Moreover, it’s also exactly why you saw the Democrats and fake news media start coordinating on the whole Trump/Russia collusion fantasy play immediately after the election – it’s a classic Projection strategy.  The Clintons have always used the Projection strategy anytime they’ve been caught in any wrongdoing.
  • In such situations, the Clintons have always, without exception, resorted to muddying the waters by accusing their opposition of engaging in the very same wrongdoing in which they’ve been involved.  The fact that they’ve always been able to rely on 95% of the nation’s news media to simply parrot their talking points 24 hours a day is how they have survived for this long.
  • They all knew they were all safe as long as Hillary won, and they also knew that no one was safe now that Donald Trump had won.  For the last 11 and a half months, our entire nation has been tied up in a massive Democrat/fake media projection project, and it’s all slowly, finally unwinding.
  • Thank you, President Trump, for that.

Just another day in Russia collusion fantasy America.

That is all.

Chuck Grassley Yanks All The RINO Fingers Out Of The Obama/Clinton Corruption Dike

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Tired of all this winning yet? – the fake news media are now eating their own.  Ain’t it great?  On Wednesday, the fake journalists at CNN, desperate to find a way to climb out of their perpetual third place position behind MSNBC and Fox News, ran a story alleging that MSNBC regular contributor Mark Halperin has been charged with harassment by no fewer than five women.  CNN’s own lineup of pompous fake male TV hosts better hope that their own behavior in the workplace has been pure as the driven snow over the years, because you can bet their fake counterparts at MSNBC will out looking for some allegation of their own in the wake of this take-down of Halperin.  It’s so great when horrible people start a war with one another.  It’s like watching a football game between the Eagles and the Redskins.
  • In the market for even more winning now? – Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has now called for the Justice Department to appoint a new special counsel to investigate the ballooning Uranium One scandal.  On Fox News this morning, Sen. Grassley expressed his concern that current Special Counsel Robert Mueller is “conflicted” on this matter, given information that has come to light that the details of the scandal were kept hidden from the public by the FBI when he led that agency during 2009 and 2010.  “Conflicted” is a very kind word for Mueller’s situation related to this matter.
  • Grassley took a shot at Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who recused himself from being involved in any investigations related to allegations the Trump Campaign had somehow “colluded” with Russia, tweeting “Whoever in DOJ is capable w authority to appoint a special counsel shld do so to investigate Uranium One “whoever” means if u aren’t recused”.  Ouch.  But Sessions has no legitimate reason for expanding his idiotic recusal to Uranium One, given that the events related to it took place many years before the 2016 presidential contest.
  • We already know we cannot trust Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to act appropriately here.  After all, he’s the guy who selected the hopelessly conflicted Mueller – best friend of key witness James Comey, and a running buddy of Rosenstein’s to boot – to investigate the whole Trump/Russia fantasy in the first place.  Plus, he was working as a U.S. Attorney under Obama AG Eric Holder during the time period in which the Uranium One scandal took place, and has his own potential conflicts related to the matter.
  • No, this is a decision Mr. Sessions must make himself, and a formal request for a special counsel from the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee carries with it a weight that will be hard to ignore.  It really is long past time for Jeff Sessions to do his job.
  • Speaking of Jeff Sessions doing his job, his Justice Department on Wednesday did lift its long-standing gag order that has prevented a supposed key witness in the Uranium One money laundering scheme to testify before congressional committees investigating the scandal.  In a statement,  DOJ spokesman Ian Prior said the the informant was authorized to disclose to the congressional leaders of three committees “any information or documents he has concerning alleged corruption or bribery involving transactions in the uranium market, including but not limited to anything related to Vadim Mikerin, Rosatom, Tenex, Uranium One, or the Clinton Foundation.”
  • This scandal, suppressed successfully by the Obama Justice Department for seven long years, is now taking on a life of its own, and Senator Grassley, with his well-earned reputation for impartiality, has become the key player.  Once Grassley weighed in with his request to DOJ, it made the scandal impossible for Democrats and RINOs like Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr to contain.  After spending the last 10 months helping to facilitate the Democrat/news media Trump/Russia collusion fantasy play, even Mr. Burr will be forced to start taking a serious look at all the massive wrongdoing and lawlessness that took place during the Obama Administration.  Thus, we can expect other Obama-era scandals like the thousands of unwarranted unmasking requests by senior officials and the real progeny of the fake Trump Dossier to become the subject of more intense scrutiny by congressional committees.
  • The dam on Clinton/Obama corruption has burst, and we can thank Senator Grassley for having yanked all the RINO fingers out of the dike.

Just another day in the Worm is Finally Turning America.

Robert Mueller’s Pretense of Impartiality Means Indictments Are Soon to Come

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Hey, distract yourself with this shiny object over here! – NBC reports this morning that Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his crew of Clinton/Obama shills is now investigating… wait for it…the Podesta Group!  No, that’s not John Podesta, who managed The Most Corrupt Woman in America’s presidential campaign, but his brother Tony Podesta, who runs a high-powered lobbying firm for Democrat interests in the nation’s capital.
  • It seems the Podesta Group neglected to properly disclose its lobbying activities on behalf of something called the European Center for a Modern Ukraine (ECMU) to the federal government, doing so only after its activities on behalf of this entity were disclosed in the fake news media.  That’s a felony, if the oversight was intentional.  Of course, it will be pretty much impossible for Mueller’s team to prove intent absent some sudden come-to-Jesus moment by someone at the Podesta Group, something that is about as likely to happen as the Cleveland Browns winning the Super Bowl.
  • If you’re getting excited about this news that Mueller’s sham investigation into a Democrat/Media-created fantasy of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign is suddenly aiming its guns in the direction of the Democrats, where we know real Russia collusion took place, well, cool your jets.  The NBC report is “news” based on leaks from the Mueller team, and is most likely just an effort by the Special Counsel’s office to try to build some public credibility.
  • Think about it:  Mueller is anything but stupid, a creature of the DC Swamp for 30+ years.  He knows that any findings against any Trump-related people by his investigation will be hopelessly tainted due to the fact that he has stacked his team with hyper-partisan hacks.  Given that his goal from the start has been to find something, anything with which to charge someone, anyone associated with the President with some kind of criminal activity in order to damage Mr. Trump, he knows that credibility with the public is crucial to achieving that goal.
  • The last thing he wants to do is turn his fantasy-based investigation in the direction where it really should be aimed, i.e., reality, but he knows he must at least put up the pretense of impartiality.  What better way to do that than by leaking to the very willing Democrat accomplices at NBC that he and his crack team of Clinton/Obama donors are “investigating” potential wrongdoing by a high-powered lobbying firm with a very familiar Democrat name at the top for possible crimes that will be pretty much impossible to prove?
  • If you don’t believe that this is how these swamp creatures and their media hack supporters think, I give you the response mid-week last week by MSNBC fake journalist Andrea Mitchell to the current reporting on the Clinton/Russia/Uranium scandal by reporters for The Hill.   When asked why MSNBC and NBC were maintaining radio silence on that scandal’s new revelations, Ms. Mitchell responded that her network had “already reported” the story in the past.  The Media Research Center determined that that “previous reporting” to which Mitchell referred amounted to NBC having spent all of 92 seconds reporting on earlier revelations in 2013.
  • This is what these fake media outlets do whenever they’re faced with an inconvenient scandal involving one or more of their Democrat heroes:  they file a single, perfunctory report on the matter, giving it the most biased slant possible, and then spend the next 20 years claiming that “we already reported that story.”  It’s like getting a flu shot – you take just a smidgen of the nasty stuff in order to make yourself immune from having to go through the full-blown illness.
  • This inoculation strategy is as old as the DC Swamp itself, and this is most likely exactly what the Special Counsel’s office is implementing with its “investigation” into disclosures by the Podesta Group.  By putting up the pretense of looking at a high-powered Democrat lobbying firm for possible technical violations, Mueller and his team are most likely setting the stage for announcing indictments of former Trump campaign adviser Paul Manafort or others who were involved in the campaign.  Not surprisingly, the NBC story even runs a photo of Manafort, and mentions the Mueller team’s early morning raid of his home that took place in July.  Coincidence?  Don’t kid yourself.
  • Thus, when accusations of the Special Counsel’s office’s obvious bias start to come, Mueller will now be able to defend himself and his team by saying “hey, we also looked at this Democrat firm over here.”  See this shiny object?
  • Simple.  Utterly corrupt, but elegantly simple.

Just another day in DC Swamp America.

That is all.

Law Enforcement Has Failed The Las Vegas Massacre Victims

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • It is hard to remember any modern criminal investigation in the United States that was botched as badly in its public communications as the investigation into the Las Vegas massacre has been thus far.  The Orlando night club shootings were a mess, but at least investigators into that terrorist attack had a relatively believable narrative and timeline nailed down within about 48 hours of the incident.  The same was true of the San Bernardino terrorist assault – within a few days of that mass murder, law enforcement appeared to have the salient facts of the case pretty well nailed down and communicated to the public.
  • Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the ongoing (we think, anyway) investigation (such as it may be) into the mass shootings in Las Vegas, which killed 58 innocent people and wounded almost 500.  The investigators in this case still do not appear to have nailed down the simplest, most basic facts of the case, starting with when the shooter checked into the damn hotel.
  • On Friday, Las Vegas Metro PD Sheriff Joe Lombardo seemed to confirm that, after 12 full days of claiming that the shooter checked into the Mandalay Bay Resort on September 28, he and his crack staff of investigators finally got with the hotel’s front desk, had them hit a few keys on their computer, and determined that he actually checked in on September 25.  This is a fact many ordinary people have known for at least a week, thanks to the revelation by hotel employees of both a room service receipt dated September 27, and a valet receipt in the shooter’s name dated – guess what? – September 25.  This really is not that hard, Sheriff.
  • But maybe Sheriff Lombardo didn’t confirm that as an actual fact – it’s almost impossible to tell, given that he is possibly the most nervous, shifty, and inept public speaker in the history of American law enforcement.  Maybe he’s nervous because he isn’t used to this role.  No, wait, that can’t be it, since he has performed the role of public spokesman on hundreds of criminal investigations in the past.  Maybe he’s so nervous because he’s embarrassed that his investigation thus far has been such an abject cluster-you-know-what.  That could be it – the Sheriff does at least appear to be a person with some sense of self-awareness.
  • Or maybe, as is typical of so many public speakers, he’s so extremely, visibly nervous because he doesn’t really believe the narrative he is reciting is actually true.  Maybe he’s so extremely, visibly, tremblingly nervous because of that beady-eyed FBI guy standing just behind his left shoulder monitoring each and every word he says.  That might have something to do with it.
  • Regardless of the reasons for his nervousness before the cameras, somebody needs to get Sheriff Lombardo some lessons in public communications, fast.  Here are some lessons some smart communications professional could teach him:
    • It does not inspire confidence when you break off eye contact every time you recite some “fact” or “timeline” discovered by your investigation.  People who believe what they’re saying typically have no problem looking their questioner or the camera in the eye when they answer;
    • Given the FBI’s recent history of major corruption and defrauding the American public, it does not inspire a lick of confidence when you tell us that “We are standing hand-in-hand with the FBI in the continuance of this investigation”, as you said in your no-questions press conference yesterday.  For informed Americans, that is actually a cause for alarm;
    • Speaking of that press conference, it does not inspire any confidence at all when you hold a press conference, strictly limit its attendance only to press members you approve, and then refuse to take questions;
    • If you feel you have to say “There is no conspiracy between the FBI, LVMPD, or the MGM,” you have a credibility problem of your own doing, from which it is probably impossible to recover; and finally
    • If you hold a press conference at which you say and do all of these things and basically offer no real, new information at all, then you shouldn’t have held the press conference.
  • To be clear, neither I nor anyone else knows if there is any sort of conspiracy among law enforcement to push any sort of false narrative about this horrible crime.  It could just be that Sheriff Lombardo really is the most inept spokesman for any major criminal investigation in modern times.
  • What I do know is that the story we’re being told right now is so filled with holes it could serve as your kitchen collander.  It is simply not believable, for instance, that this shooter was a guest at the Mandalay Bay for a full week and was never captured by any of the hotel’s thousands of security cameras.  Not possible.  Period.  It is simply not believable that his multiple computers contained no useful information about his background or his preparations for this crime, which, if law enforcement is to be believed, spanned months, if not years.
  • The American public deserves better than what law enforcement has delivered related to this investigation thus far.  More to the point, the 58 dead, 500 injured and their loved ones deserve better.  If Sheriff Lombardo and his beady-eyed FBI overseer are incapable of providing that, then perhaps someone else should be put in charge of this case.

Just another day in unbelievable government narratives America.

That is all.

James Comey: All Phony, All The Time

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Hey, remember waaaayyyyyy back in July of 2016, when bi-polar former FBI Director James “Leaky” Comey feigned seriousness in his nationally televised statement about his decision not to refer Hillary Clinton for criminal prosecution over her rampant disclosure of national secrets on an illegal email server?  Remember how he got a little choked up with emotion a couple times there, almost looking like he was on the verge of tears?  Remember how he claimed his decision was an excruciating one, a decision based on long months of arduous investigation by himself and dozens of his FBI agents?  Good times…good times….
  • Yeah, that was all fake.  Turns out, he made that decision months before – in April, in fact, and that everything that took place related to the investigation after that was just for show.  This was all quietly revealed on Thursday with the release of transcripts from a closed Senate Judiciary Committee hearing that took place earlier this year.  In the grand pantheon of sleazy American public servants, it is hard to think of anyone more sleazy than James Comey has turned out to be.  But hey, that’s how a career bureaucrat gets himself a multi-million dollar book deal and becomes a hero to those on the political left.
  • And speaking of FBI sleaze…:  Don’t think the systemic corruption at the FBI has ended just because Comey and Barack Obama and Loretta Lynch are no longer in charge.  Earlier this week, the FBI formally announced that it was withholding a mass of documents related to the fake investigation of the Clinton email scandal “due to lack of public interest” in the matter.  Even J. Edgar Hoover, as hopelessly corrupt as he was, rolled over in his grave at that bit of shameless sophistry.
  • But all is not lost:  On Thursday, Federal Judge James Boasberg ordered the agency to immediately release all previously unreleased documents related to the investigation.  While that’s wonderful, the thing that really needs to happen here is for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to get his butt over to the FBI building and fire a bunch of people.
  • Twitter progressives before yesterday:  “Trump is rich!!!! Why won’t he donate his own money to the hurricane relief funds!!!!!!!”  Twitter progressives this morning, after Trump gave $1 million:  “Trump doesn’t care !!!  He’s just doing it for the attention!!!!”
  • Truth about 99.9% of those Twitter progressives:  they haven’t given one thin dime of their own money to any of the relief funds.  If it weren’t for rank hypocrisy, these people would have no discernible personality traits other than undying rage.
  • Barack and Michelle Obama, who already have a home in the outskirts of Washington, DC valued at about $9 million, are now looking to purchase a vacant lot in Martha’s Vineyard valued at $15 million.  This is a couple who have never in their lives earned a combined salary in excess of $400,000 per year.  Politics is obviously great work if you can get it.
  • These are not reasonable people you’re talking to, Senator.:  California’s geriatric Sen. Dianne Feinstein is in big, big trouble with her party’s never-ending rage voter base, after she advised a gathering of her constituents to “be patient” with President Trump at a townhall meeting earlier this week.  Big mistake, saying something like that to a group of people whose only reason for getting up out of bed each morning is so they can project their rage on anyone they happen to run into, either in person or on social media.  So now they’re projecting some of that never-ending rage on the senior Senator from California.  Cool.
  • They need to learn that bigotry is now cool among those on the political left.:  The UK Sun reports that L’Oreal has now fired its first trans-gender model after he…oops…’Ze’ went on a Facebook rant accusing all white people of being inherently racist.  Apparently, the management at L’Oreal needs to undergo a joint sensitivity training session at which they learn that this model was simply parroting the talking points of the Democratic National Committee.

Just another day in Through The Looking Glass America.

That is all.
