The Evening Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
So, let’s construct a little timeline…
February 28 – President Trump issues a seemingly nasty tweet that is critical of both Attorney General Jeff Sessions and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz:
Why is A.G. Jeff Sessions asking the Inspector General to investigate potentially massive FISA abuse. Will take forever, has no prosecutorial power and already late with reports on Comey etc. Isn’t the I.G. an Obama guy? Why not use Justice Department lawyers? DISGRACEFUL!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 28, 2018
Early March – the fake news media, including ABC, leaps to the defense of Sessions and Horowitz, a reaction to Trump’s tweet that was as predictable as the sun rising in the East.
March 13 – The DOJ Office of Professional Responsibility recommends that Sessions fire former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. That recommendation is based on a finding by IG Horowitz, stemming from his 14-month investigation into FBI/DOJ wrongdoing.
March 16 – Sessions fires McCabe late on a Friday evening, just two days before McCabe’s pension was set to kick in, ensuring that the firing would be one of the main topics of conversation on all the Sunday morning fake news programs.
March 17-18 – The fake news media, in obvious coordination with the Democrat Party, hilariously attempts to blame McCabe’s firing initially on President Trump. Trump, of course, literally had nothing to do with the firing at all, and it quickly becomes apparent the public isn’t buying it.
March 18-19 – The fake news media also slowly begins to wake up to the fact that the firing of McCabe was executed by Sessions and Horowitz, two men they had all spent the first half of March saying very nice things about. This makes it tough for them to shift their tactic from blaming Trump for McCabe’s firing to blaming Sessions. But they have to blame someone in the Trump administration for some sort of wrongdoing in the McCabe firing, because that’s what the narrative dictates. What to do?
March 21 – ABC tries to solve the conundrum with its story alleging that McCabe, almost a year ago, opened a criminal investigation targeting his own boss, Sessions. By filing this story just a few days after McCabe’s firing, ABC obviously hopes to convey the blatantly false impression that Sessions actually fired McCabe because he was angry at having been investigated by a subordinate.
Sadly, this is how the fake media in our country works. Nevermind that McCabe was smack in the middle of the abuse of the FISA process, the faking of the investigation into the Clinton email scandal, is alleged to have encouraged his subordinate, Peter Strzok, to falsify his notes from his interview with Mike Flynn in order to entrap Flynn into a trumped-up guilty plea for lying to the FBI, and on and on and on. The narrative dictates that Donald Trump is the bad guy, and anyone who is on the bad side of Donald Trump is the good guy – it simply must be that way.
Which is why, when Trump issues a tweet critical of Sessions and Horowitz, the fake media rushes to their defense, and when Trump praises the firing of McCabe, the fake media rushes to call Sessions and Horowitz the real crooks. Watching the fake media go back and forth on these guys is like watching a tennis match from the stands at center court.
But that’s what the anti-Trump narrative dictates, and the narrative must always prevail. It’s important to remember here that literally no one is exempt from this simple rule. Just wait to see what a villain Robert Mueller becomes in the fake news media’s eyes when he is finally forced to admit publicly that there was no collusion between the Trump Campaign and Russia.
That is all.
