The Russia Uranium Story Is A Chance For Our Useless Attorney General To Finally Step Up To The Plate

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Our thus-far useless Attorney General Jeff Sessions will likely finally be put on the spot today, as he testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee.  Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley is expected to question Sessions about his knowledge of a Russian bribery scheme that took place during the early Obama years, and involved kickbacks to government officials and massive Russian money going to the Clinton Crime Family fake Foundation, along with millions of dollars in “speaker’s fees” to former President Bill Clinton.
  • The payoff for the Russians was, of course, the awarding of a federal permit to buy Uranium One, a company that controls about 20% of U.S. uranium assets, by a Russian firm in which Vladimir Putin owns an interest.  The approval of that permit was made by what the Obama Administration called the Committee On Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), on which both Attorney General Eric Holder and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were members.  Imagine that.
  • We’ve all known the basics of this scam for years, but assumed that James Comey’s FBI and Holder’s Justice Department simply looked the other way and allowed then-Sec. Clinton to coordinate all this money laundering with impunity.  But it turns out that the FBI actually did investigate this matter during 2009-10, and found criminal wrongdoing before Holder and likely then-President Obama put a halt to it.
  • All of that and more is contained in a story broken on Tuesday by reporters John Solomon and Alison Spann for The Hill.  Grassley apparently became aware of this situation last week, and sent letters to all relevant federal agencies who had members on CFIUS, demanding they produce documentation that would indicate whether their representative on the committee had knowledge of this FBI investigation when they voted to approve the sale of Uranium One to Russia.
  • Grassley, who is famously plain-spoke when he is angry, had this to say about the matter on Tuesday:  “It has recently come to the Committee’s attention that employees of Rosatom were involved in a criminal enterprise involving a conspiracy to commit extortion and money laundering during the time of the CFIUS transaction.  The fact that Rosatom subsidiaries in the United States were under criminal investigation as a result of a U.S. intelligence operation apparently around the time CFIUS approved the Uranium One/Rosatom transaction raises questions about whether that information factored into CFIUS’ decision to approve the transaction.”
  • It is into this breach that our thus-far useless Attorney General steps today.  Mr. Sessions has to this point very conveniently recused himself from anything having to do with Russia – because he had a meeting with the Russian Ambassador during the presidential campaign – as a means of facilitating his reluctance to deal with all of the rampant lawlessness that took place during the Obama Administration.  It is this baseless recusal that led to the appointment of Special Counsel Bob Mueller, and to the continued stonewalling of several congressional investigations and court cases by the FBI.  While many conservatives who support President Trump – myself included – were excited about the Sessions appointment when it was made, he has turned out to be one of the most disappointing hires made by this President.
  • While the fake news media – other than The Hill – are doing their best to ignore this story, given that it involves wrongdoing by so many of their Democrat heroes, today is actually a very pivotal moment for the Trump Administration.  If Mr. Sessions continues his posing as having a reason to recuse himself from Russia matters, even as they have absolutely nothing to do with the Trump presidential campaign, then that should be cause for the President to fire him and replace him with someone who really is interested in doing this job.
  • What this story shows us clearly is that the entire “Russia Collusion” fantasy play foisted on the public by the Democrats, the fake news media and willing Republican sympathizers in congress since last November is nothing but another classic case of Clintonian projection strategy.  The Clintons – and the Obama Administration – were involved in collusion with the Russian government throughout Hillary Clinton’s time as Secretary of State, and, when Trump won the election, knew that all of this would likely come to light.
  • The Clintonian strategy in situations like this has always been to get ahead of such revelations by accusing their opponents of the very same kind of wrongdoing first, in order to divert public attention away from their own actions.  The real collusion here has been between the Clintons, the Obamas, the fake news media and swamp-dwelling Republicans who have facilitated their projection strategy, even to the point of creating a special counsel to investigate the fantasy.
  • Today is Jeff Sessions’ chance to prove his is up to the job he’s held since February.  I’m looking for a reason to think he will prove worthy of the task, but am having a really hard time finding one.  We’ll just have to wait and see.

Just another day in Russia Collusion America.

North Korea Rattles Sabres, Liberal Heads Explode. S.O.P.

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • It’s what they do; it’s who they are. – Well, U.S. intelligence agencies have determined that the Crazy Little Fat Guy (CLFG) over in North Korea now has the ability to deliver a nuclear warhead on his ICBMs, and liberal heads exploded all over America’s fake news media and the social media space.  No, they didn’t explode at the news that CLFG has deliverable nukes – that would be far too sensible.  Nor did their progressive heads explode with anger at former President Bill Clinton for his horrible 1994 deal with Pyong Yang that set the wheels in motion for this to happen, nor at George W. Bush and Barack Obama for fecklessly allowing the situation to fester for the last 16 years, joining Clinton in happily passing the buck off to the next guy.
  • No, liberal heads exploded because President Donald Trump said the following in response:  “North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen… he has been very threatening beyond a normal state. They will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before.”  But let’s be honest:  President Trump could have sung the lyrics to “Hey, Jude” or recited the Gettysburg Address and gotten the same response.  If he opens his mouth, liberal heads are going to explode.
  • My first question about this whole episode is why should we trust the word of our intelligence agencies in their assertion that CLFG is now a threat to the U.S. mainland?  These intel agencies have consistently demonstrated beyond any doubt that they are not trustworthy, and frankly, that they are not patriots.  Their constant stream of leaks and false narratives over the last 7 months has severely hampered the ability of this President to govern the country, intentionally so.  These agencies are not staffed with patriots, they are by and large staffed with skunks and snakes, the worst sort of DC swamp creatures who leak classified information and put others’ lives at risk for their own self-aggrandizement.  There is no reason whatsoever to worry that Denver is in danger of being vaporized by North Korea based on the words of this collection of seditionists.
  • Indeed, the expressed threat yesterday from Pyong Yang was aimed at…wait for it…GUAM, which happens to be the nearest U.S. territory to North Korean shores.  Not Los Angeles, not Seattle, not Anchorage, not even Honolulu.  Guam.  Given his pretty consistent past behavior, it seems logical to believe that, if CLFG really had the ability to threaten a major U.S. city with his nukes, he’d be directing his threats there.  I mean, c’mon, threatening the tiny island of Guam is like kicking a kitten.  CLFG won’t get any street cred for that.
  • Bottom line here:  If you’re losing sleep in your bedroom in Texas over this intel-agency alleged threat, you’re most likely making yourself drowsy over nothing.
  • Interestingly, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was the cool head in the room on Tuesday, advising everyone to remain calm.  Go figure.  Lavrov correctly pointed out that this kind of sabre rattling is how Pyong Yang has always responded to escalating sanctions from the UN (which were agreed upon over the weekend):  “Strictly speaking, this is how representatives of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea have reacted to all previous U.N. Security Council resolutions,” he said, “We will judge by their actions.”
  • Of course, were Trump to agree with Lavrov, Rod Rosenstein would immediately appoint another Special Counsel to investigate, and Wolf Blitzer’s beard would sprinkle to the floor at CNN headquarters.

The Desperation Of The Democrats

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • As has been the case with the Democrat Party since the Clintons took it over a quarter century ago, whenever they are accusing any Republican of a bad behavior, it is a very safe bet that they are doing so in order to deflect attention from the fact that they are engaged in the very same behavior, or worse.  Over the last few weeks, we are now finally beginning to discover the real reasons why the Democrats and the fake news media have invested so much time and energy since November 8 of last year in promoting their Russia Collusion fantasy play.
  • Not that we hadn’t already been aware of some of the Clintons’ shady dealings with the Russians, of course.  Even before the election, we knew that Hillary, while serving as Secretary of State, brokered a deal that ceded control of about 20% of America’s uranium resources to a group of Russian oligarchs, and we knew that those same oligarchs just happened to pour tens of millions of dollars into the Clinton Crime Family Foundation around the same time that deal was being made.  We also knew that it was also around this same time that Bill Clinton was receiving double his normal speaking fee of $250k not once, but twice from the same Russian oligarchs.  Just a coincidence, of course.
  • It was only recently that Wikileaks alleged that Special Counsel Bob Mueller was also involved in the brokering of that deal.  Wikileaks, which has basically never been wrong about anything to this point, says it has found an email in which The Most Corrupt Woman In America got Mueller to deliver a sample of the uranium in question to a Russian representative in 2009.  The Wikileaks email points up the need for the Justice Department to investigate the Special Counsel while his own sham investigation is ongoing.  #Irony.
  • But that’s far from all there is here.
  • Since the election, we have also found out Clinton Campaign Manager, John The Spirit Cooker Podesta, took time out from sacrificing goats and chickens to serve on the board of a company with heavy Russia connections  , and that he owns 75,000 shares of that same company.  We also now know that Podesta failed to disclose any of this on his federal disclosure form when he went to work for the Clinton campaign.  Interestingly, we found out just a couple of weeks ago that company in question has suddenly collapsed, as its investors pulled the plug on its funding.  Funny coincidence, that.
  • But that again is far from all there is to this.  There are so, so many more reasons why the Democrats and their agents in the fake news media have been so desperate to keep public attention focused on their Russia Collusion fantasy.
  • Take the case of Debbie Wasserman Schulz and at least 2 dozen Democrat members of congress, and their longtime employment of one Imran Awan and several of his family members since 2004 at massively inflated salaries for instance.  Mr. Awan was famously arrested last Tuesday at Dulles Airport as he attempted to follow his family members in fleeing the country to Pakistan.  The initial charge against him is listed as bank fraud, as he illegally wired several hundred thousand dollars to Pakistan that he and his family had obtained via fraudulent loans from the Congressional Federal Credit Union.
  • But there is so, so much more to this story.
  • Mr. Awan, for example, as being paid more than $160,000 per year to be the “IT Staff” for Ms. Schulz and other Democrats, yet most congressional staffers in the same role make no more than $60,000 per year.  In addition, no one among all of these Democrats appears to be able or willing to point to what specifically Mr. Awan did for them in his “IT” role.  Add to this that Mr. Awan also had access to the email accounts for the House Homeland Security and Foreign Affairs Committees, and you can see that there is an awful lot more to come from this growing scandal should the FBI and Justice Department conduct a proper investigation.
  • But wait, there’s more!
  • What about Fusion GPS, the firm made up of sleazy ex-fake journalists that concocted the infamous “Trump Dossier” that James Comey tried to use to frame President Trump.  We now know that the preponderance of this bunch’s revenue comes from – guess who? – Russia!  Oh, and they also do a lot of work for Venezuela’s socialist regime.  Of course, the big unanswered question about Fusion is who exactly hired them to dummy up the Trump Dossier in the first place?  The group’s management isn’t saying, and Democrats are desperate to prevent us from finding out.  Go figure.
  • Oh, but we aren’t done yet, are we?  Nope.
  • How about the whole “unmasking” scandal, which the House Intelligence Committee has finally, at long last decided to investigate, and which the Justice Department claims to also be investigating.  We know now that senior Obama officials, including CIA Director John Brennan, National Security Advisor Susan Rice, and even UN Ambassador Samantha Power, issued thousands of requests for the unmasking of Republicans during the presidential campaign.  THOUSANDS.  It is more than fair to note that each and every one of those three people reported directly to Barack Hussein Obama at the time they were making those thousands of requests.  It is beyond the realm of credibility to believe their boss had no idea what they were up to.
  • There is even more than all of this, but I’m running out of space here.
  • The legend the Democrats and the fake news media have created is that Hillary Clinton and her campaign people believe they lost the election due to Russian interference, and that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians during the campaign.  A full year of investigations into these allegations has produced zero proof of any such collusion, or really any evidence at all that the Russians influenced a single vote at the end of the day.
  • The truth, of course, is that it was the Democrats who were closely tied to the Russians, and the reason why the Democrats and their media agents have reacted so stunningly viciously to the election results is that they know that honest investigations into their activities will result in many, many Democrats – and possibly some fake journalists – serving major time in various federal prisons around the country.
  • Had Clinton won the election, there would have been no “Russia Collusion” fantasy play, no investigations into any of the matters listed above.  The Justice Department and FBI and our intelligence agencies would have remained utterly corrupted and would have protected all involved, just as they did during the Obama regime.
  • But they didn’t win the election, and they woke up the morning after election day frightened and desperate to come up with some way to divert attention to Trump and the Republicans.
  • We now know all of these things.  The only remaining question is whether Attorney General Sessions can force the FBI and his U.S. attorneys to focus their investigations properly.  We can only hope he will.  There is much investigating to do.

Just another day in desperate Democrats America.

That is all.

Liberal Heads Explode Over Dinner Chat. Sad!

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • So, the latest fake journalist joint head explosion was caused by the revelation that, during one of the dinners at last week’s G20 meeting, President Trump left his seat and sat down next to Vladimir Putin for a discussion.  The media, keeping with their agreed-to narrative, is uniformly describing this as a “private” discussion “with no other Americans present”, since the President did not have his own interpreter with him, relying instead on Putin’s interpreter to handle both sides of the discussion.  Characterizing the dinner chat in this way is the height of absurdity given that it took place in a room with at least 200 people present, at a dinner table where half a dozen others were constantly within earshot, and dozens of others passed closely by while the national leaders were talking.  CNN even found some ex-Obama swamp creature to call it a “breach of national security protocol.”  Good lord.
  • President Trump responded to this latest news fakery on Twitter:  “Fake News story of secret dinner with Putin is “sick.” All G 20 leaders, and spouses, were invited by the Chancellor of Germany. Press knew!”  And “The Fake News is becoming more and more dishonest! Even a dinner arranged for top 20 leaders in Germany is made to look sinister!”   Yyyyyyyyep.
  • Hey, remember when all the #NeverTrump goofballs told us that it would be Donald Trump who betrayed the country on the promise to repeal and replace ObamaCare?  Yeah…they were wrong about that, too.
  • Well, looks like Hillary Clinton may have finally, at long last, overstayed her welcome with pretty much every American who doesn’t call themselves Democrats.  A new Bloomberg poll shows that her favorability rating is lower than Donald Trump’s, mired at 39% to Trump’s 41%.  That 39% level has historically been pretty much the base level for either Clinton over the last 25 years.  It appears that basically all Democrats would support either of them even if they were discovered standing over some murdered DNC staffer’s body, gun in hand.  For the rest of us, it appears that Ms. Clinton’s endless blame-shifting efforts for her defeat last year have finally become too much to bear.  That sure took a long time.
  • It is not news that climate alarmists keep having to move their “end of the world” goal posts in order to keep scamming the government for grant money to fund their “science,” but one of the most prominent scammers among them has now taken this exercise to an absurd extreme.  Well-known alarmist James Hansen – who for years worked the scam from inside the government rather than outside of it – famously told a congressional committee in 1988 that New York City would be under water “within 30 years.”  In 1998, he announced that we would see a global temperature rise of 5 degrees Centigrade by 2018.  Given that neither New York City sea levels or global temperatures have risen by any measurable degree at all since 1998, Mr. Hansen has now decided that NYC is safe for…wait for it…wait for it….150 more years!  And that global temperature that hasn’t risen at all for the last 20 years?  Uh, well, we’ll probably be ok, but only through the end of this century – THEN it’s going to get really, really hot.  Pushing the goal posts out that far may seem absurd to you and me, but it does have the benefit of ensuring that Mr. Hansen will be long perished from this earth before his latest projections of climate Armageddon are proved false as well.

The Times Slimes Trump Jr., But No Real Scandal Here

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Coverage of politics by the U.S. fake news media is filled with rank double standards, with Republicans always being held to a far higher standard of behavior than Democrats.  But none is ranker than the media double standard when it comes to dealings and entanglements with Russia.  The latest sliming of Donald Trump Jr. by the NYTimes and other fake news media outlets is just the latest in a long, long line of examples of the media’s literal insanity when it comes to matters involving Russia.
  • First, let’s look at what Mr. Trump Jr. is alleged to have done.  As of this morning, he is alleged by the NYTimes – on the word of “three people with knowledge of the situation”, what ever the hell that means – to have received an unsolicited email last June from some guy named Rob Goldstone, who had no official involvement with the Trump campaign.  In that email, Mr. Goldstone is alleged by the NYTimes to have encouraged Trump Jr. to meet with a woman – who had no position with the Russian government – who claimed that she had damaging information about the Hillary Clinton campaign, including information indicating that the Russian government was funding that campaign and the Democratic National Committee.  (Mr. Goldstone, by the way, denies making any such statement in his email.  But nevermind that, the Times is intent on making this into a scandal.)
  • Mr. Trump Jr. did take a meeting with this woman who, as it turned out, had no such information about the Russians, and instead really wanted to talk about an American law that prevents Americans from adopting Russian babies.  The meeting quickly broke up, and everyone went on their merry way – this, no one disputes. This, the NYTimes wants you all to believe is a major scandal.
  • Now, let’s look at what the NYTimes does not consider to be a scandal:  While serving as Secretary of State, Ms. Clinton brokered a deal that turned over roughly 20% of U.S. uranium reserves to a handful of Russian companies.  Shortly after that deal was finalized, those companies “contributed” millions of dollars to the Clinton Crime Family Foundation.  The NYTimes finds nothing suspicious about any of this at all.
  • Clinton Campaign Manager John Podesta has made millions of dollars from investments and sitting on boards of various Russian companies, and in fact maintained significant Russian investments while managing the Clinton campaign.  The NYTimes finds no issue with any of that.
  • During the 2012 presidential campaign, then-President Barack Hussein Obama was caught on an open mic whispering to Russian Foreign Minister Dmitry Medvedev “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved, but it’s important for him (Vladimir Putin) to give me space.  This is my last election.  After my election, I have more flexibility.”  Despite the clear message being sent here – that Obama felt the need to act tough towards Russia during the campaign, but would be more amenable once re-elected – the NYTimes saw nothing scandalous in this behavior.
  • Going back even further in time, to 1984, liberal hero Ted Kennedy flew to Moscow and literally begged the Russian government to intervene in the U.S. presidential election in a failed effort to prevent the re-election of Ronald Reagan.  No one at the NYTimes saw any issue with that at all, and Mr. Kennedy was able to serve in the U.S. Senate until the day he died.
  • Here’s reality:  During the campaign, representatives of both the Trump and the Clinton campaigns no doubt held dozens, if not hundreds of meetings with third parties claiming to have damaging information about the opposition.  This is an integral part of what every campaign refers to as “opposition research”, and these campaigns will take any real, true information they can get their hands on, regardless of the source.  There is nothing scandalous about anything we’ve learned about Trump Jr.’s meeting with this woman thus far, and damn sure nothing illegal about any of it.  Anyone who says otherwise is just a partisan hack, which of course, accurately describes everyone who works for the NYTimes.
  • In addition to that reality, given the many episodes in which stories published by the NYTimes about this presidency based on anonymous sources have been clearly demonstrated to be utterly false, there is a greater than 50/50 chance that this latest bit of journalistic malfeasance will ultimately have to be corrected or withdrawn.
  • But for the time being, this will be the story on which the entire fake news media obsesses as the Trump Administration continues to systematically erase the Obama policy legacy from the federal books.  Seems like a fair trade to me.

Just another day in fake news media America.

Trump Triumphs in Europe

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • President Trump made a magnificent and inspiring speech in Poland yesterday, one filled with a soaring defense of democracy and free societies and even a free press.  Naturally, the fake free press in the U.S. in unison declared the speech to be “dark”, in keeping with the approved talking points it had received in advance from the Democrat Party.
  • CNN’s bed-wetting fake White House reporter, the petulant Jim Acosta, told that network’s fading viewer base that President Trump’s joint press conference with Poland’s President Andrezj Duda was “fake news” because he took two questions from conservative news organizations in between questions from hyper-aggressive fake reporters from NBC and other leftist fake news outlets.  Mr. Acosta obviously suffers under the delusions that what he is doing is exactly the same as how Sam Donaldson performed during the Reagan years.  The truth, of course, is that Jim Acosta is not fit to clean Sam Donaldson’s Fruit of the Looms.
  • Speaking of President Duda and CNN, CNN and other fake media outlets breathlessly reported throughout the day that Mr. Duda’s wife refused to shake hands with President and Melania Trump when they met yesterday.  Some fake outlets continued to purvey that false report even after films of the first couples shaking hands were broadly disseminated late in the day.  Mr. Duda got so fed up with it that he issued a tweet saying “Contrary to some surprising reports my wife did shake hands with Mrs. and Mr. Trump after a great visit. Let’s FIGHT FAKE NEWS.”  After which Jim Acosta no doubt needed a change in underwear.
  • In other fake news news, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow received fake documents from some anonymous source yesterday that purport to prove that some Trump campaign officials were colluding with the Russians last year.  The amazing thing about this story is that, rather than just go on the air and pretend the documents were real, as we would have expected Ms. Maddow to do in the normal course of her efforts to libel the President, she actually figured out they were fake and warned other reporters of their fakeness.  Just another sure sign that the Democrat/Media axis of nitwittery has decided to move along from their fake collusion fantasy play.
  • President Trump, in his speech yesterday, took a very aggressive posture towards Vladimir Putin and Russia, making it even more difficult for the Media/Democrat complex to keep up the Collusion facade.  By yesterday afternoon, all fake reporters were left with was to speculate about how “frightening” it is to have Donald Trump representing the U.S. in a conversation with the leader of Russia, a prospect far more normal Americans feared when Barack Obama was representing the U.S. in such discussions.
  • As always happens at G20 Summits, violent protests by anti-capitalist lunatics broke out on the streets, and of course some in the fake news media tried to imply the protests were about President Trump.  Another outright lie.
  • In other news, PA Senator Pat Toomey told a local TV station that the reason why Senate Republicans didn’t have an Obamacare replacement plan ready in January was “because we didn’t think Trump would win.”  *sigh*.  Of course, that doesn’t help to explain Senate Republicans still don’t have an Obamacare replacement plan ready in July, does it?  Honestly, congressional Republicans are somewhat tolerable these days only because they aren’t congressional Democrats.

All The News That’s Fit To Fake

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Indications abound that the Russia collusion fantasy play is dead as a doorknob.  Here are some examples:

  • Writing in the Washington Post, fake columnist David Ignatius, a regular guest on “Morning Joe”, posted a column titled “Working With Russia Might Be The Best Path To Peace In Syria”.  I kid you not, somehow a piece with that theme made it past the WaPo’s fake editors, despite the fact that the WaPo has for the last two years been brutally pounding Donald Trump for even thinking such a thing, and the fact that the fake newspaper has willingly participated in supporting a Democrat/fake media-invented fantasy that alleges that Trump is in Vladimir Putin’s pocket.
  • Next up is this story in Politico, in which several leading Democrats are quoted moving the goal posts on how the fantasy play’s final scene may eventually play out.  Here, instead of alleging that Trump or people associated with this campaign may have somehow coordinated efforts with Russia to “hack” the U.S. election system, the Democrats have now begun to speculate that some nebulous, unidentified “Americans” or “American insiders” – whatever the hell that means – might have been the culprits who held the Russians to….ummmm…to do….welllll….to hack into….ummmm….ok they have no idea what any of this even means.
  • Then there is this unintentionally hilarious defense from The Hill of the fake news media’s having to retract a raft of fake stories and fire a bunch of people in recent weeks:  “Together, the corrections and retractions amount to only a few stories out of the thousands published every day. But the high-profile nature of the errors hurts the media’s credibility at a time when the press is under more scrutiny than ever before, giving new political ammunition to critics of the mainstream press.”  In other words, the fake journalists at The Hill aren’t at all concerned about the fakeness of the stories on the various Democrat fantasy plays, they’re worried that the retractions and firings are helping the public catch onto the truth.  Typical.
  • And the fakery is not limited to the Russia Collusion fantasy.  The Associated Press had to retract a fake story late last week in which it alleged that EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is unjustly tilting environmental policy in favor of chemical companies.  The key foundation for the story was a meeting the AP said Mr. Pruitt had with Dow Chemical CEO Andrew Liveris.  The problem is, an investigation by Breitbart revealed that no such meeting ever took place.  The AP initially refused to retract or even correct its fake story after Breitbart had notified its fake editors that their mendacity had been discovered, and only relented after the story went viral on Twitter and other social media.
  • And hey, occasionally one of these fake news outlets even files a fake story without even knowing it’s fake.  Take the NYTimes, for instance, which filed a story on Tuesday about the Crazy Little Fat Guy who runs North Korea.  In the story, the NYTimes’ fake writers quote a Twitter account named @DPRK_News, which it identifies as a North Korean state-run media outlet.  Only problem is, that Twitter account is a well-known fake.  Upon learning of this, the fake editors at the fake newspaper issued a meek “correction” to their fake story.

Seriously, you would think that at some point, these fake editors and reporters would get tired of having to issue all these retractions and corrections, and maybe start focusing on real news.  But then, that would make them real editors and reporters, and none of them remember what that even feels like anymore, assuming they ever did.

Just another day in fake news media America.

Trump Erases Obama Legacy as the Fake Media Obsesses Over Tweets

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

That is all.

On Jared Kushner, Whose Anonymous Sources Are We To Believe?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Anonymous sources everywhere, but never a one to believe.:  Fox News reports this morning that an anonymous source “familiar with the situation” has told their reporter that Jared Kushner did not in fact raise the idea of opening a back channel of communication with Russian officials last December, contrary to all the fake reports all over the fake news media the last few days, reports that were also based solely on anonymous sources.  The subject was, according to Fox’s anonymous source, actually broached by Russian officials, and would have resulted in a single telephone conversation regarding the Obama Administration’s atrocious, utter failure of a Syria policy, not a permanent back channel, as the NYTimes and WaPo have claimed.  So whose anonymous source is to be believed – the ones that resulted in the Weekly World News-like, sensationalist reports in the Times and Post, or the one that results in what sounds like a far more likely scenario at Fox News?  In today’s America, the lines of belief will no doubt break down largely along partisan lines.
  • Today’s Required Reading.:  Kurt Schlichter pens a fantastic piece at Townhall.com titled, “Liberals Are Shocked To Find We’re Starting To Hate Them Right Back.”  Seriously, just read it.  You’ll be glad you did.
  • That’s the way it has always been for communists in America.:  In a rare bit of real news at its site,  Politico has a report out about how tough it is for Bernie Sanders supporters these days, as it seems that his supporters are finding it darn near impossible to capture actual levers of power, even within the commie-friendly confines of the Democrat Party.  Gosh, I just feel so, so bad for these people, victims as they are of their own brand of nitwittery.
  • Still prosecuting the last war after all these years…:  Terry Frei, a sports reporter for the Denver Post, was fired within two hours of the end of the Indy 500, after he tweeted that he is “uncomfortable” that a Japanese driver had won the race on Memorial Day.  Some will moan about the Post’s cow-towing to the Gods of political correctness, but dang, man, World War II ended 72 years ago. Can’t we all just get along at long last?  Holy cow.
  • But hey, WWIII could be just around the corner, if John McCain gets his way.:  The Senator From The News Media, in an interview with the Australian Broadcasting Company, said that “[Vladimir] Putin is a bigger threat than ISIS.”  The tirelessly warmongering Senator was unfortunately not asked by the interviewer where he would place himself in that same ranking, but most informed observers would put him way up there.
  • That escalated quickly.:  When Texas Republican state representative Matt Rinaldi called ICE after he was threatened by some in a very large and loud group of pro-sanctuary city protesters who had gathered in the state capitol building while the legislature was in session, Democratic state rep. Pancho Navarez threatened to kill him.  This is what the Democrat Party of today refers to as peaceful debate of the issues.
  • Meanwhile, in the realm of winning…:  While the Democrats and the fake news media continue their tireless efforts to distract the American people from reality, the Trump Administration keeps on winning, systematically erasing huge chunks of the Obama “legacy”, such as it is.  This includes progress on building the promised wall along the southern border, where, as the DC Examiner reports, planning is well underway, contracts are being bid out, and there is, despite fake media reports to the contrary, plenty of money in the budget to start construction.

Just another day in fake news media America.

That is all.
