Today is Beauregard’s last stand. – Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, the former do-nothing Attorney General who allowed Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller to run the Department of Justice for two solid years, makes his last stand today in Alabama. He trails opponent Tommy Tuberville by a wide margin in the polling leading into today’s GOP primary runoff election to determine which Republican gets to run Democrat Doug Jones out of the U.S. Senate.
In typical blunt fashion, President Donald Trump made his preference in this election known on Twitter yesterday.:
Big Senate Race in Alabama on Tuesday. Vote for @TTuberville, he is a winner who will never let you down. Jeff Sessions is a disaster who has let us all down. We don’t want him back in Washington!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 11, 2020
Just a reminder that everything that happened with the Soviet-style Mueller Special Counsel operation stemmed from Jeff Sessions’ own mendacity. This man is one of our country’s worst disasters, and fully deserves the electoral humiliation coming to him today at the hands of Alabama’s voters.
Speaking of our nation’s worst human disasters… – The leftist nitwits at the Dan Abrams operation “Mediaite” got a case of the vapors yesterday after a senior White House staffer shared a mean cartoon targeting Dr. Anthony Fauci, the man who has done more to destroy our nation’s economy and school system than any person alive.
From the piece at Mediaite:
White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications Dan Scavino publicly blasted White House Coronavirus Task Force member Dr. Anthony Fauci Sunday on Facebook.
Scavino posted a cartoon by conservative illustrator Ben Garrison which showed Fauci as a faucet flushing the economy down a sink, with labels including “Indefinite lockdown!” and “Shut up and obey!”
“Sorry, Dr. Faucet! At least you know if I’m going to disagree with a colleague, such as yourself, it’s done publicly — and not cowardly, behind journalists with leaks,” Scavino commented. “See you tomorrow!”
Looks like a pretty accurate cartoon. Mediaite’s only upset because cartoonist Ben Garrison captured the reality of Fauci and all the damage he has done and continues to do to our society so succinctly. The man is a menace to our very survival.
In case you missed it, Fauci complained to one eager reporter the other day that he has not briefed the President in “at least two months.” This is what we know in the real world as great and reassuring news. Given that Fauci has yet to be right about anything at all related to the COVID-19 pandemic, it seems like a peachy idea to keep him the hell away from the President so that policy decisions might be made on actually accurate information coming from others.
If Mr. Trump never speaks to this little menace again, America will be a much safer place.
She’s a leader with real leadership who is leading by exercising leadership with leading. She leads the entire nation by leading with leadership, and leads with more leadership than all those other non-leading leader losers hoping to become Joe Biden’s running mate. – Here is Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms’ argument for why she should become Joe Biden’s running mate:

Oh, please, please, please let this happen.

This is what Fredo Cuomo and Jake Tapper refer to as a “civil rights group,” folks. You could never make this stuff up.
A sports journalist piece everyone should read. – Sports journalist Jason Whitlock, who famously called out the NFL and Black Lives Matter last week, published a terrific op-ed at OutKick.com yesterday. It’s a piece every American should read.
Here’s an excerpt:
It’s the media’s addiction to Twitter. We now crowdsource our ethics, standards and guiding principles. The Twitter mob is America’s ombudsman.
Journalism is dead. It’s been sick for a long time. The widespread usage of the internet placed journalism on life support in the 1990s. Facebook and Twitter pulled the plug.
Big Tech killed the greatest human experiment, the United States of America. You can’t sustain freedom and fairness with mob crowdsourced ethics and standards. By definition, a mob is disorderly, riotous and lawless. A mob is unconcerned with truth.
The theory driving the importance of a “a free press” is that journalists will deliver truthful information to the public and the public will make good decisions based on that information.
Feed the public social media-friendly, clickbait narrative lies disguised as racial-justice truth and you provoke the kind of unrest currently sweeping this nation. Media black lies matter. They agitate old wounds, sow discord and distrust, undermine patriotism and prevent us from addressing real problems.
The annual murder of thousands of black men is a legitimate problem. Social media has us fixated on the annual murder of a half dozen. Black lies matter, especially when they’re used to conceal a political agenda detached from the advancement of freedom.
Journalists should not be political partisans.
As I keep telling you, the death of journalism threatens to become the death of our country if we do not find some way to hold the corporate, clickbait-focused media giants accountable for their intentional spreading of rank falsehoods. My one disagreement with Whitlock here is that he puts the main focus of his blame on social media, where these thousands of corrupt journalists manifest their outrageous biases every day.
But social media is just a facilitator here, a convenient platform. The truth is that the death of real journalism in our country took hold in our nation’s universities during the 1960s and 1970s with the new focus on “advocacy journalism” replacing the former focus on hard work, proper sourcing and the telling of the objective truth.
The central problem here is that for the last half century students in journalism schools all over the country have been brainwashed to believe that there is actually no such thing as objective truth. Once you lose the concept of truth, then all journalists feel justified in becoming fiction writers and reporters as they intentionally slant the “news” to favor their own personal pet causes.
Fundamentally, this is how a blatantly Marxist, domestic terrorist organization like Black Lives Matter gets turned into a “civil rights group” in the eyes of the entirety of the American media establishment.
The brainwashing will continue until every one of us submits.
That is all.
