(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
This is going to be a fun, fun week. – Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe announced over the weekend that his group is going to be releasing a new series of confidential recording this week. The target of this project?
CNN. Check this out:
This week, a CNN insider will blow the whistle and through Project Veritas will release dozens of recordings made of officials at the highest levels of CNN, revealing a political agenda, bias and misconduct hidden from public view.
This series of tapes — which we think will be the biggest story of the year for Project Veritas — blends two extraordinary series of events; a brave insider secretly recording at work and a hard-hitting piece of hidden camera muckraking into one of the supposed “most trusted names in news.”
Oh, my. Somewhere, Brian Stelter is huddled in a broom closet, furiously consuming a sack of jelly donuts. What fun!
Are there really any coincidences in the DC Swamp? – Speaking of cable news outlets, here’s something to think about where Fox News is concerned: Last Thursday, the fake news media was filled with reports about Attorney General William Barr holding a meeting with Rupert Murdoch, Chairman of the Board for Fox News, the previous evening. Democrats were so alarmed about the meeting that they were all over CNN and MSNBC that day demanding a congressional investigation, even though there was no publicly-known reason for them to have any concern.
Of course, the Democrats have been in a bit of a frenzy to tarnish Barr’s reputation as he proceeds with his investigation into the origins of the coordinated DOJ/FBI/CIA/media efforts to deny Trump the presidency in 2016 and later to stage a coup d’etat to remove him from office, efforts that continue to this day. But the concern over this simple meeting seemed bizarrely overwrought, even in the context of that character assassination campaign, at least until Friday afternoon at 3:59 ET, when Shep Smith announced his “resignation” from his amazingly undeserved position at the cable news channel.
Remember that a big part of the Barr/John Durham investigation focuses on the massive leaking and cozy relationships with certain media members by the coup plotters within the government. It is also very important to remember that DOJ IG Michael Horowitz’s long-overdue FISA abuse report supposedly will be released late this week, and Horowitz has also been heavily-focused on the leaking issue.
The three things could be totally unconnected, but you can’t help wondering if Barr met with Murdoch to let him know what his investigation has discovered related to some of Fox’s employees and contributors, including some of its on-air “talent,” and their relationships with the Deep State coup participants. Certainly, no one among Fox’s on-air anchors has spent more time parroting the talking points of the Deep State more fervently over the past few years than Shep Smith has.
Again, it could all be just a big coincidence, and maybe Mr. Smith just got tired of being the cable channel’s poster child for the DC Swamp. Or maybe he got canned as a result of his on-air feud with the highly-rated Tucker Carlson. But I’ve never been much of a believer in coincidences.
Speaking of that on-air feud between Smith and Carlson, highly-paid Fox contributor Andrew Napolitano was at the center of all of that. As reported on September 25 by Vanity Fair:
The schism was evident this week as a feud erupted between afternoon anchor Shepard Smith and prime-time host Tucker Carlson. It started Tuesday when Fox legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano told Smith on-air that Trump committed a “crime” by pressuring Ukraine’s president to get dirt on Biden. That night, Carlson brought on former Trump lawyer Joe diGenova, who called Napolitano a “fool” for claiming Trump broke the law. Yesterday, Smith lashed back, calling Carlson “repugnant” for not defending Napolitano on air.
Of course, Vanity Fair omits the fact that “former Trump lawyer Joe diGenova” is also a former U.S. Attorney, and a very highly-regarded one. Because of course that’s what they did – that’s what the fake news media does. But I digress.
The thing to remember about Napolitano is that he had a very, very noticeable on-air transformation from being a Trump supporter one day to changing his on-air “legal analyses” into consistent anti-Trump rants the next. This transformation took place suddenly, shortly before the President publicly announced the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to become his second Supreme Court appointment. It is well-known that Napolitano actively lobbied the President for a Supreme Court nomination.
Here is what we also know without any doubt whatsoever: A large number of “journalists” and cable TV personalities are on the payroll of our intelligence agencies, and have been for more than half a century now. The convergence of all of these events could be mere coincidence, but it is certainly valid to wonder if Barr met with Murdoch as a courtesy call to give the media mogul a head’s up on which of his employees might be about to become implicated in some very major investigations.
The hyper-panicked reaction by the Democrats to what could well have been just a dinner between two old acquaintances indicates they’re a lot more worried about it than any reasonable person would be.
That is all.
