The Week in Review: The Fake News Media’s Fakest Week Ever

This past week saw the fake news media have what probably was its fakest week ever – which is saying an awful lot – and here a few of the highlights:

The fake news media, lacking any other negative story on which to focus in order to avoid reporting on the massive, mushrooming scandal of corruption at DOJ and the FBI, spent the first several days of the week hammering the Rob Porter story.  While Porter’s likely a wife-abusing turd who needed to be fired and needs to be punished, that hardly compares to a scandal in which the top echelons of our country’s national law enforcement apparatus willingly turned themselves in to a bunch of partisan hack felons.  But this is what our fake news media has become in the 21st century – just the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party.

Speaking of our fake news media, it went completely gaga over the brutish sister of North Korea’s Crazy Little Fat Guy for two reasons:  1) it gave all the fake reporters and commentators an excuse to bash Mike Pence, and 2) she looked and acted for all the world like a fairly normal and sane human being.

Speaking of Mike Pence, he was blasted by one of the shrew hostesses of The View, Joy Behar – the shrewest of the shrews – for his habit of talking to Jesus Christ as a part of his Christian faith, a habit that is shared by 100 million or more Americans.  The saddest thing about this little episode is not that ABC did literally nothing to discipline its pet shrew for her remarks, but that millions of people actually watch stuff like The View as a part of their day.  Seriously, people, better ways to spend your time include cutting your arms up with sharp knives and egging your neighbor’s house.  Stop it.

CNN, as usual, won the Fakest Outrage Story of the Week Award.  The fake network got completely pantsed by Texas Senator Ted Cruz when vacuous frat boy fake host Chris Cuomo accused the Senator of being “afraid” to come on CNN to talk about the DACA and other issues.  A few minutes later, Cruz responded by posting photos of him being interviewed for 15 minutes by a CNN fake reporter, a report that CNN had in fact refused to air.  This…is CNN.

This was the week we discovered that former Obama designated Benghazi liar Susan Rice was so concerned about what Barack Obama told her, James Comey, Sally Yates and Joe Biden in a meeting on January 5, 2017, that she felt the need to write an email to herself 15 minutes after the Obama Administration had ended on January 20 pretending he had said something else.  Her obvious CYA effort was discovered by Chuck Grassley, and rather than keeping her former boss out of trouble, it only serves to make it much more likely we will eventually find out what President You-Can-Keep-Your-Plan really said in that meeting.  Can’t wait.

Speaking of Sally Yates, her starring role in the Rice memo, combined with Byron York’s great piece revealing the fact that James Comey told congress last March that the FBI agents who interviewed General Mike Flynn on January 24, 2017 thought he had not lied to them, place her right back in the thick of the effort by the DOJ/FBI Deep State cabal to take down President Trump.  That’s because the idea that Flynn did do something wrong originated with Ms. Yates while she was serving as acting Attorney General during the latter part of last January.  We’ll be hearing much more of Long Tall Sally’s name in the coming weeks.

The fake news media was able to shift some of its myopic focus away from Rob Porter on Wednesday when 17 Florida school children were tragically killed by a nutjob about whom we found out later the FBI had been warned at least twice in the months leading up to the incident.  Of course, all the fake reporters and fake talking heads did their best to avoid talking about yet another FBI failure in favor of their very favorite subject of disarming the American public.  But again, that’s what the fake news media does.

45 minutes after the latest revelation of FBI incompetence on Friday, Special Counsel Robert Mueller got his little toady Rod Rosenstein to call a hasty press conference to provide his old agency some cover.  Rosenstein announced that Mueller was indicting 13 ham sandwiches, er, Russian nationals on charges that they created a bunch of fake social media accounts during 2016 and had no impact at all on the November 2016 elections.  Mueller has the luxury of knowing that he will never have his hilarious charges tested in court since all the Russians are in, well, Russia and won’t be surrendering themselves to the FBI anytime soon.

The fake news media, of course, ignored the only real news in Rosenstein’s statement, which was that no American had any knowledge or “colluded” in any way with the Russian ham sandwiches.  Instead, the fake reporters and talking heads parroted the false talking point that President Trump had spent the last year calling allegations that Russians interfered in the 2016 elections a “hoax”, and Mueller proved the President wrong.  Of course, the truth is that the President has spent the last year correctly calling allegations that his campaign “colluded” with Russian efforts to interfere with the 2016 elections a “hoax”, and Mueller just proved him to be absolutely right.

Oh, and to top everything else off, the Democrats in the U.S. Senate tossed the so-called DACA “kids” (Average Age:  26) under the bus one more time, refusing to provide 9 votes for any of the various immigration reform plans considered by the Senate this week, not even for John McCain’s bill which represented a unilateral GOP surrender on the issue.

The fake news media in unison blamed the Senate’s failure on President Trump, because, hey, that’s the narrative, and when you’re throwing in the towel on whatever shred of integrity you had remaining in order to protect your Democrat benefactors, the narrative is all that matters.

Just another fake news media week in Trump Derangement Syndrome America.

That is all.

Pelosi, McConnell, Schumer and Ryan Just Raised the Mortgage on Your Kids’ and Grandkids’ Futures Again

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – Food stamp enrollments dropped by more than 4 million from October to November of last year, the Labor Department announced yesterday.  That is the largest single-month decrease in such filings ever recorded.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – The Labor Department also reported that new claims for unemployment benefits last week dropped to 221,000, the lowest number of such claims recorded in 45 years.  So despite the ongoing correction in the stock markets, the economy just keeps winning.

I’ve always said that the best way to avoid shutting down 14% of the government was to throw $300 billion at it.  Doing that will always, without fail, get you 9 Democrat votes in the Senate, satisfy all the war hawks like Lindsey Graham and John McCain, and let all the Republican squishes like Mitch McConnell and Susan Collins go back to their states and brag about how well they are “governing.”  Oh, yay.

So, when you see your kids, grandkids and great grandkids today, give ’em a big hug and thank them for allowing us all to keep living so well on all their highly-mortgaged futures, because the bill for all of this is going to come due at some point on their watch.  Or, if you prefer, you can just say nothing and feel guilty about it, which is what most of us will do.  Either way, the bill will be the same.

On the positive side, the budget deal does include much-needed additional funding for the military, along with the long-promised-but-never-delivered emergency relief funding for the victims of all the major hurricanes that made landfall last year.  On the down side, the deal includes more than $130 billion in new social spending that will just raise the baseline budgets for an array of ineffective and often counterproductive social programs, and which will be used by Democrat politicians all over America to buy votes in November.

The bill contains nothing for the DACA “kids” (Average age: 26), and indeed, nothing on any other immigration-related matter.  So the next few weeks will be consumed by news of fake negotiations over all that stuff, as the Democrats, in their never-ending bad faith, put on a show for the DACA kids one more time, only to throw them under the bus yet again come March 5.  Because the Democrats are not going to agree to any significant immigration reforms, and the President is not going to agree to any DACA “fix” that does not included border security funding, severe limitations on chain migration, and the end to the insane visa lottery fiasco.

In other good news this morning, the LAPD has referred no less than three criminal cases to the District Attorney’s office in La-La-Land, meaning at least one of Hollywood’s many, many monsters might actually go to prison for serial sexual abuse and assault on pretty much every woman he ever came into contact with, except for Hillary, Meryl and Oprah.  Cool.

Speaking of woman abusers, how about this Rob Porter guy, huh?  If you hadn’t figured it out already, Mr. Porter is this week’s fake news media excuse for not covering all the incredibly scandalous developments involving a growing array of Democrats.  Not that that excuses Porter’s alleged bad behavior – if it is indeed true – but the amount of obsessive attention all the fake news outlets have given this story is scandalous in and of itself.

Yes, it is a damn shame – again, if the allegations made by his former wives are true – that a sleaze like this managed to get past those vaunted FBI background checks (maybe those checks were performed by Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who would have been too tied up texting each other to actually do the work) and work in the White House for more than a year.  But let’s face it, hundreds of people work in and around the White House every day, and the sad odds are that any workplace involving that many people is going to be home to at least one such sleazeball, perhaps more.  Hell, from 1993 through 2000, that guy was in fact the president.  That’s the nature of our society today.

If this were the Obama Administration, the Porter story would have been completely hushed up by the fake news media.  Maybe Fox News might have spent a couple of minutes on it.  But this is the Trump Administration, where any excuse to ignore the latest developments in the biggest political scandal in American history is going to be amplified beyond all imagination by fake reporters and editors who are desperate to avoid doing their actual jobs.

Because that’s what the fake news media does.  No wonder the Newseum in Washington, DC, which is nothing more than a monument to a time long past when America actually once had a functioning profession we quaintly referred to as “journalism,” is about to go bankrupt.  A perfect metaphor for a dead profession.

Just another day in fake news media America.

That is all.
