If the Rosenstein Stonewall Continues Today, the President Must Fire Him

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – Don’t look now, but Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk, after running up the cost of his infamous Model 3 from $36,000 to as much as $100,000, is threatening to actually do something good for a change:

As of early this morning, 88% of the vote in that poll was in the “yes” category.  Hilariously, the “yes” vote actually went up throughout the day, even as the fake news media was filing a raft of negative stories about Musk’s threat to create a site that would monitor media credibility.  Thus, Musk has already been proven correct in his assertion that the fake mainstream news media has no credibility at all outside of the tiny, shrinking echo chamber all the fake journalists and the Democrat politicians they support inhabit.

Go for it, Elon – it would be a great public service, and you wouldn’t have to worry about cost overruns for once.

But, but, but…Obama told us that wasn’t going to …oh, hell, nevermind. – Speaking of a fake news outlet whose reporters desperately need to be monitored by Elon Musk, the New York Times is reporting this morning that it turns out that the Mullahs over in Iran have been developing inter-continental ballistic missiles throughout the entire time they were negotiating the most one-sided “deal” in world history with Barack Obama and John Kerry, and have continued their development program during all the time since the deal supposedly ensured that would not happen.

So, it turns out that what Obama really told the Mullahs is that “if you like your ICBM program, you can keep your ICBM program.” [rimshot!]  I got a million of ’em, folks, I’ll be here all week.

Documents?  What documents?  Wait, you asked for documents?  Sorry, we don’t got no stinking documents… –  Well, it’s another episode of Rod Rosenstein Sandbags Congress over at the Justice Department today.  The oily Deputy Attorney General will hold not one, but two meetings with congressional leaders today to discuss long-outstanding congressional demands for documents related to the whole Russia Collusion fantasy play.

The first meeting will be with only Republicans Devin Nunes and Trey Gowdy because, well, Nunes and Gowdy don’t want this stuff being leaked to CNN, the NYTimes and the Washington Post in real time.  That meeting will be held at noon, ET.

The second meeting takes place at 2:00 ET, and will include the entire congressional “Gang of 8”, which includes four Republican leaders and chairmen and four senior Democrats.  This will include California Democrat Adam Schiff, so you can expect the confidential discussions that take place in this meeting – or at least the Democrat spin on them – to be all over CNN by about 3:00 ET.

Democrats had spent much of the day on Wednesday demanding they be included in the first meeting, but Nunes refused to allow that because he knew if he let Schiff and the other Democrats in that meeting, it would all be leaked and the dishonest media would attempt to blame it all on Nunes.  Because that’s what the Democrats and their media enablers do.

Both meetings were set up by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, after the principles had met at the White House on Monday with President Trump.  Kelly will reportedly attend both meetings, as will FBI Director Christopher Wray and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats.

Two key documents in play here are the two memos that Rosenstein wrote last year first authorizing the appointment of Robert Mueller to be Special Counsel, and then expanding the scope of Mueller’s investigative authority.  Nunes, Gowdy and other congressional GOP committee chairmen have long sought these documents so that they can understand exactly what in the hell it was that Rosenstein authorized Mueller to do.  It’s important to note that similar authorization memos for previous special counsels were readily made public by DOJ within days of their being issued.

But Rosenstein is desperate to prevent any Republican member of congress from seeing these memos in an un-redacted state.  At this point, we don’t know why that is, but his desperation is palpable and certainly seems suspicious under the circumstances.  FBI Director Wray has also been a willing facilitator of the stonewalling on these and other documents, so no one should expect him to be an advocate for transparency.

We can hope the presence of Coats and Kelly – neither of whom have participated in previous meetings on this subject – might lead to some sort of breakthrough in today’s meetings.  Barring such an outcome, it is getting to the point at which the President is literally obligated to fire Rosenstein for his obvious obstruction efforts.

Yes, that would create a firestorm in the fake news media, but as I’ve said many times before, so what?  That happens every day to this President.

The American people deserve to know why Mueller was appointed and exactly what he was authorized to do, and most importantly, under which U.S. laws that authorization was made.  Rod Rosenstein has a big high-powered title, but at the end of the day he is just another bureaucrat.  Bureaucrats do not get to deny the public’s right to know unless elected officials empower them to do so.  We can’t count on elected representatives like Paul Ryan or Mitch McConnell to do anything about this, so the decision will ultimately fall to Donald Trump to make.

If the Rosenstein stonewall turns today’s meetings into just more Kabuki Theatre, it’s time for the President to make that call.

Just another day in the Rosenstein act is really tiresome America.

That is all.

Every Day is “Opposite Day” in the Fake U.S. News Media

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

If you’re shocked at the utterly dishonest manner in which the entirety of the fake mainstream media is covering Spygate (thanks to President Trump for coining that shorthand term today), well, you need to pay closer attention to the Campaign Update and less attention to CNN.

Here’s the short message about this 100% “Opposite Day” coverage:  Get used to it, because it’s going to continue.  At this point in the saga, fake media outlets who have served as nothing but leak receptacles for the Deep State Cabal within the FBI/DOJ for the last 2 years have no choice but to keep coordinating fake narratives with the perps.

And boy, are the perps spreading a fake narrative.  Clapper’s on The View, telling the View Shrews that the Trump should be grateful for the FBI’s efforts to illegally surveil and entrap no fewer than half a dozen members of his campaign.

Ex-FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey’s out there issuing tweets like this one…

…which of course perfectly describes the 8 years of Obama that Americans had had enough of when they went to the polls on November 8, 2016 and elected Donald Trump to the presidency.  But Comey’s either too dense or just too dishonest to realize it.

Interestingly, John Brennan, who the President went after on his own Twitter account on Tuesday, has remained oddly quiet since his Cicero-quoting outburst on Sunday.  But rest assured that can’t last – this is one seditious drama queen who, like Clapper and Comey, simply can’t contain himself.

And hey, when you have The View Shrews, Jake Tapper and the other class clowns at CNN, and the entire staffs at the New York Times and Washington Post eagerly waiting to take dictation from you and spread your false narrative, why not?

The most hilarious part of this comes when some fake reporter or opinionist manages to take a step back and realize that for President Trump, the mass media immolation that is going on is completely to his advantage.  Times fake columnist Frank Bruni went through an incredibly rare moment of clarity on Tuesday with a piece titled “Robert Mueller, You’re Starting to Scare Me.”  In this semi-lucid screed, Bruni frets that all the media focus on the Mueller investigation actually helps Trump enact his agenda by distracting the public’s attention away from all the other things he’s getting accomplished.

Well, welcome to the party, pal.  I’ve been writing about this reality for a freaking year now.  Good of you to suddenly try to catch up.

But trust me, Bruni’s fret is just a flash in the pan at the NYTimes, a one-off that won’t be repeated because it does not fit the narrative the Deep State Cabal is pushing.  Expect to see far less semi-clear thought pieces like Bruni’s, and far more utterly backwards reasoning in stories like this “analysis” from the fake newsers at the ongoing massive dumpster fire that is NBC News:

 

This is me, slapping my damn head reading that tweet.  Ho Lee Cow.

The Democrat Party is Collapsing in on Itself

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – Investors Business Daily reports that the median U.S. household income has now hit an all-time high of more than $61,000, and that President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three words) is getting credit for it from the public.  Cool.

It’s where all the Clinton-era bodies are buried. – A big sinkhole has opened up on the White House grounds.

Life comes at you fast, Democrats. – In a Campaign Update barely 10 days ago I told you we would start seeing congressional generic ballot polls around late summer showing the Republicans leading in that measure, in which the Democrats were leading by double digits just two months ago.  Well, I was wrong:  The new Reuters generic ballot poll , conducted on May 17 and released on Tuesday shows the GOP with a 1 point advantage.

But it gets even better.  For the week ending May 20, a larger running sample shows the Republicans holding a significant 6 point lead over the Democrats.  Hey, maybe coming out in support of Iran, Hamas, MS-13, North Korea and impeachment all in the same week isn’t such a great platform to campaign on for the midterm elections.

Hey, everybody, the Democrats have a new campaign message! – And boy, you aren’t going to believe what it is.  No kidding, the party of MS-13, Hamas, Iran and open borders has gotten hold of new polling data that tells them that the magic bullet to enable them to save their sagging prospects for taking back the House of Representatives in the midterms is to use the phrase…wait for it…oh, you have to wait for this one…DRAIN THE SWAMP!

Yes, friends, the Democrat Party finds itself so bereft of anything resembling creative thought, so utterly lost for a viable campaign strategy for 2018, so without any real means to compete with Donald Trump and so completely lacking in the slightest shred of understanding of the cultural and political dynamics that led to their crushing defeats in 2014 and 2016 that they now have decided to have Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi – the two people who, more than any other living Americans, literally define the DC Swamp – go out and recite the Trump campaign slogan to their audiences of brainwashed nitwits.

I kid you not, I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Really, who could?

Speaking of flailing Democrats, serial liar James Clapper – Barack Obama’s Director of National Intelligence –told the cackling hens on The View yesterday that the FBI placing spies within presidential campaigns is just standard operating procedure that “happens all the time.”  Ok, well, if that’s true, then identify the spies you placed in the Pansuit Princess’s and Jeb!’s campaign.  Go ahead, Director, we’ll all wait right here.  Good lord.

But back to that campaign message.  Here’s the political reality for the Democrat Party:  It is collapsing in on itself.  Yes, I know you are bombarded every day with messages from the fake news media that it is actually the GOP that is in trouble, but that is absolute nonsense.  The Democrat Party is teetering on the brink of literal collapse.

It is already little more than a regional minority party concentrated along the Northeast and West Coasts, with islands of support in crime-ridden big cities like Chicago and Detroit.  The Party has no message that holds any appeal to the vast majority of people who live outside of those scattered areas.

Furthermore, the Democrat Party has no leadership at all.  None.  Zero.  Zip.  Nada.

Here we are, 19 months after the 2016 election disaster, and who is still the de facto head of the Democrat Party?  The Pantsuit Princess!  A 70 year-old two-time loser in presidential politics who, along with her husband and Barack Obama, has taken what was a massive national majority political party and winnowed it steadily down to its lowest common denominator.

Outside of the Fainting Felon, the next most recognizable Democrat face is San Fran Nan, who is possibly the single most-detested politician still holding office in America today.  The ability to put her face and voice into Republican campaign ads this fall will by itself pretty much guarantee the GOP will hold onto its majorities in congress.

Behind these two women, you have the radical leftist nitwits, Tom Perez and Keith Ellison, who have run the Democrat National Committee to the verge of bankruptcy.  And behind those circus clowns, you have about 50 lifetime mediocrities jockeying for position to be the Party’s sacrificial lamb nominee in 2020.

The Democrats’ biggest conundrum right now is that they are a captive of a voter base that has become increasingly radicalized and irrational in the wake of the 2016 elections.  The Democrats cannot “moderate” as a Party because the radicals won’t allow it.  This the Party of social justice warriors, Antifa, La Raza, CAIR, Hamas and MS-13, and there is pretty much nothing anyone can do about it.

The Reuters poll is not yet the norm – a CBS generic ballot poll released the same day shows the Democrats clinging to a 2 point lead – but the trend is obvious, rapid, and the Reuters poll will be the norm in a few weeks at the current pace.  And ask yourself this:  What tools do the Democrats have at their disposal to turn this growing tide back around?

Here is where we are headed:  In November, the GOP will not only hold onto its majorities in both houses of congress, it will increase them.  The Republicans will end up gaining a net 5 seats in the Senate and more than that in the House.  Trust me, this isn’t because the Republicans in congress are necessarily doing a bang-up job and deserve to hold a dominant position.  It’s simply because the Democrats are just that bad.

If you think the Democrats’ radical nut-job voter base went nuts after the 2016 election, just wait until you see them act out following this coming electoral disaster.

Just another day in the Democrat Party is collapsing America.

That is all.

We Are Just at the Tip of the Deep State Iceberg

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – The deep state Obama flunkies were in full-on panic on Monday, as the details of their conspiracy to fix the 2016 election and then bring down a duly-elected POTUS continue to come to light.  Obama CIA Director John Brennan, ex-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and ex-Attorney General Eric Holder all took to their Twitter accounts or favored media support outlets to threaten various Republicans and say stuff that just isn’t true.

Fresh off of probably perjuring himself again before another congressional committee on Friday, Brennan decided to go after Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell:

Ms. Yates, who famously went after then-National Security Advisor Mike Flynn under false pretenses under the never-used Logan Act, and refused to enforce lawful executive orders during her single week as acting AG, told the nitwits on MSNBC’s Morning Joe this:

“I think what we’re seeing here is the president has taken his all-out assault of the rule of law to a new level and this time he is ordering up an investigation of the investigators who are examining his own campaign. You know, that’s really shocking.”

In addition to the above, Ms. Yates, while serving as Deputy AG, was also responsible for preventing Inspector General Michael Horowitz from exercising proper oversight over the DOJ National Security Division, a fact about which Mr. Horowitz complained before multiple congressional committees.  She’s one to talk, huh?

Not to be outdone, Yates’s former Fast ‘n Furious boss Eric Holder – who was such a shameless toady for Obama that he referred to himself as “The President’s Wingman” – lied to his Twitter followers with this:

“No basis for an inquiry.”  The man is as incurious as a fake reporter for the New York Times.

What we see here is full-on panic from those who were intimately involved in a seditious plot to basically destroy America’s democratic process during a presidential campaign.  And trust me, we are far from knowing the full extent of this plot even with all the recent revelations.

The above tweet was not the only one Brennan sent out in recent days.  He preceded that one on Sunday with a message quoting the famous Roman Marcus Tullius Cicero:

Cicero, of course, ended up being assassinated, making this a classic dog-whistling tweet if there ever was one.

But on seeing Brennan’s tweet, I remembered that Cicero was also a loquacious guy who is credited for many famous quotes about civic life in a democracy.  It took me about 30 seconds of research to come across one that is especially applicable to Brennan, Yates, Holder, Comey, Strzok, Page, Baker, Ohr, McCabe and the others who were involved in this plot:

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

You want to do some more Cicero quoting, big boy, bring ’em on.

Hey, remember that Stefan Halper guy?  You know, the CIA asset who was hired by the FBI to spy on the Trump Campaign back in July 2016?  Yeah, that guy.

Turns out he got a big, fat check  – $282,295 – from the Obama Administration just a few weeks before Election Day 2016.  Gosh, wonder what that was for?  But that’s not all – turns out this guy was paid over a million dollars by the Obama Administration between 2012-2016.  My goodness, spying for the CIA is good work if you can get it.

And speaking of Halper and the deep state creeps who ran him against the Trump Campaign, if you’re wondering why the FBI and CIA were so anxious to “out” him with strategic leaks to the New York Times and Washington Post last week, well, it could all be a distraction tactic.  This may be a case of the deep state saying hey, look at this shiny object over here so that you don’t look at the big dung heap sitting over in the other corner of your living room.

Former Trump campaign advisor Michael Caputo thinks that’s the case.  He told Laura Ingraham on Fox News last night that Halper was just one of several spies targeted against the Trump Campaign by multiple agencies of the Obama government during the 2016 campaign.  He says he knows this because one of those other spies specifically targeted him.  Caputo claims he’s just awaiting clearance from his legal counsel before making this other spy’s name public.

Hey, somebody go make some more popcorn.

Just another day in some we’re only at the tip of the deep state iceberg America.

That is all.

Monday Will be a Very Bad Day for the Deep State Cabal

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The liberal education bubble in action! – The Pantsuit Princess was given an award by Harvard University on Sunday for her “transformative impact on society.”  Wait, wait, wait – before you guffaw, or vomit at the absurdity of this, think it fully through.

The Coughing Crook has indeed had “transformative impacts” on our society.  Here are a few examples:

  • She “transformed” the U.S. State Department into a classic mob influence racket;
  • She “transformed” 20 percent of U.S. uranium supplies into Russian hands;
  • She and her husband “transformed” a charitable foundation into another mob influence racket;
  • She “transformed” the FBI into a full-fledged criminal enterprise.

But hey, it hasn’t been all bad.  At the end of the day, the Fainting Felon, more than anyone else, gave us Donald J. Trump as President.  Thanks, Hillary!

Today is going to be a big, big day. – I closed yesterday’s Campaign Update by point out that a tweet President Trump issued on Saturday indicated that he was considering taking the big step of declassifying some of the documents that DOJ and the FBI have been withholding from congress for many months.  Little did I know that that tweet was just the trickle of the presidential Twitter flood to come.

By noon Central Time, President Trump had issued a series of nine additional tweets, the text of which reads as follows, in the order in which they were posted:

  • Things are really getting ridiculous. The Failing and Crooked (but not as Crooked as Hillary Clinton) has done a long & boring story indicating that the World’s most expensive Witch Hunt has found nothing on Russia & me so now they are looking at the rest of the World!
  • ….At what point does this soon to be $20,000,000 Witch Hunt, composed of 13 Angry and Heavily Conflicted Democrats and two people who have worked for Obama for 8 years, STOP! They have found no Collussion with Russia, No Obstruction, but they aren’t looking at the corruption…
  • …in the Hillary Clinton Campaign where she deleted 33,000 Emails, got $145,000,000 while Secretary of State, paid McCabes wife $700,000 (and got off the FBI hook along with Terry M) and so much more. Republicans and real Americans should start getting tough on this Scam.
  • Now that the Witch Hunt has given up on Russia and is looking at the rest of the World, they should easily be able to take it into the Mid-Term Elections where they can put some hurt on the Republican Party. Don’t worry about Dems FISA Abuse, missing Emails or Fraudulent Dossier!
  • What ever happened to the Server, at the center of so much Corruption, that the Democratic National Committee REFUSED to hand over to the hard charging (except in the case of Democrats) FBI? They broke into homes & offices early in the morning, but were afraid to take the Server?
  • ….and why hasn’t the Podesta brother been charged and arrested, like others, after being forced to close down his very large and successful firm? Is it because he is a VERY well connected Democrat working in the Swamp of Washington, D.C.?
  • The Witch Hunt finds no Collusion with Russia – so now they’re looking at the rest of the World. Oh’ great!
  • I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes – and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!

Ok, let me catch my breath.  Where to begin?  First, let’s just concede that this was the most awesome tweetstorm in the history of tweetstorms.  In 9 tweets, containing a total of about 300 total words, the President of the United states pretty much summed up his own frustrations as well as the frustrations of about half of the country with regards to the obvious, blatant dual system of law enforcement – or lack thereof – that has been practiced within the FBI and DOJ for the past three years.

It is a dual standard, it is a witch hunt, it is a situation in which our ostensible law enforcement agencies are allowing obvious, blatant criminals to walk free on the streets and receive awards from universities like Harvard.  These are people who have betrayed our country, abused its institutions for massive personal monetary rewards, shared its highest secrets with the entire globe and who did their very best to outright steal a presidential election.

We also have a situation in which the conspirators within the FBI, DOJ and CIA who conspired to rig an election and then take down a president now fully admit that they did spy on the opposition party’s presidential campaign, and then repeatedly, bald-facedly lied about it all under oath to various congressional committees and, with the help of their media allies, to the public at large.

So, the President who was the target of the conspiracy is upset about it all?  Go figure.

The very sweaty Rod Rosenstein, whose ill-considered appointment of his pal Robert Mueller as Special Counsel marks one of the low points in all of this, responded to the President’s final tweet within a few hours by announcing he was instructing DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz to expand his investigation to include “whether the FBI held a political motive in the counterintelligence investigation,” i.e., their spying on the Trump Campaign.

Consider the specific wording of that sentence.  Why is it worded that way?  Because Horowitz has already been investigating the FBI spying operation for months.  Back on March 28, when Attorney General Jeff Sessions expanded the scope of the IG’s investigation, the authorization letter included this language: “As part of this examination, the OIG will also review information that was known to the DOJ and the FBI at the time the [FISA warrant] applications were filed from or about an alleged FBI confidential source.  Additionally, the IG will review the DOJ’s and the FBI’s relationship and communications with the alleged source as they relate to the FISC applications.”

Here’s what’s probably going to happen today, judging from the President’s tweets, which by the way were obviously drafted with help from his lawyers and probably Chief of Staff John Kelly:

  • Rosenstein’s reaction to add it all to the IG’s plate is a good start, but probably not enough.  The President may well ask for a second special counsel to be appointed, or perhaps demand that Sessions appoint a U.S. attorney to perform a criminal investigation of some of the obvious criminal activity that Mueller refuses to address;
  • The President may well also announce he is using his constitutional authority to declassify certain documents – such as the letters Rosenstein used to appoint Mueller and expand the scope of his investigation – that Rosenstein and the FBI have refused to provide to Congress;
  • If Mr. Trump takes such action, Rosenstein will in all likelihood offer his resignation, which the President would no doubt accept.

Then there’s Jeff Sessions, our seemingly too-often-absent Attorney General.  There are two common schools of thought about Mr. Sessions:

  • He’s just another deep state operative and will never do anything to bring the real criminals in all of this to justice; or
  • He’s been carefully biding his time, awaiting the issuance of the IG reports and doing everything by the book before springing his carefully-constructed trap on the nation’s enemies.  He’s had Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber investigating all of this in coordination with Horowitz, and indictments and trials will follow shortly after the IG’s work is complete and relevant criminal referrals have been made.

I want to believe the latter scenario about Sessions is the case, because if it isn’t, then all is lost and none of this matters.  If the latter is the case, then things are about to come to a head very, very quickly.  If the first scenario is true about Sessions, then we may see him either resign or be fired outright this week as well.  Because the President has had enough of this crap, and really, who can blame him?

Boom.

Just another day in some of you laughed last Friday when I told you things were about to move very, very quickly America.

That is all.

The Deep State Cabal Moves Into Justification Phase With American Pravda’s Help

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – Gosh, I’m old enough to remember like, a couple of weeks ago, when everyone at CNN was sagely ensuring us that President Donald Trump’s crazy policies would lead to a massive trade war with China.  Then yesterday, this happened:

Oooops.

The Cabal and American Pravda move into justification phase. – The Sunday morning talk shows today will no doubt be filled with Democrats and fake journalists reciting talking points about how terrible it is for congressional oversight committees and supporters of President Trump to want to “out” the identity of a “confidential source” for the FBI and CIA.  What these Democrats and fake journalists are not going to admit is that the FBI and CIA spent the last week systematically ensuring that this “source” was outed through a series of strategic leaks to the New York Times and the Washington Post, which the fake journalists at the Times and the Post eagerly accepted and published.

Say hello to American Pravda, which officially arrived as of this week.  The mainstream news media crossed the line formally into being nothing but useful tools of the deep state with the publication of these articles, and the follow-on support propaganda provided them by the fake reporters and talking heads at CNN, MSNBC and the major networks.

The Times even went so far as to publish a piece under the headline “FBI Used Informant to Investigate Russia Ties to Campaign, Not to Spy, as Trump Claims”, which is hilariously self-refuting.  Not to be outdone, the Post followed that with a piece written by an ex-FBI agent who was one of Jim Comey’s subordinates with the title “If the FBI Used an Informant, it Wasn’t to go After Trump.  It was to Protect Him.”

If Jeff Bezos had owned the Post in 1940, we’d have no doubt seen this headline:  “Hitler Didn’t Invade France to Dominate it; He Invaded France to Protect it from England.”

My goodness.

Virginia Senator Mark Warner, who we should all remember was caught last year coordinating efforts with a Russian agent, spent his time Friday evening issuing a series of tweets hilariously trying to make the case that it is actually illegal for congressional committees to exercise oversight of the FBI and CIA:

By the time Warner issued those idiotic tweets, the name of the “source” – Stephan Halper – had been known for days, outed by strategic leaks coming from those very agencies.  Halper is a retired U.S. college professor who now lives in England and teaches courses at Cambridge.  He has been a well-known, long-time contract asset for the CIA.

What we now know is that in the mid-summer of 2016, he was assigned by most likely then-CIA Director John Brennan or someone who worked for him to begin making contacts with junior members of the Trump Campaign – first Carter Page and then the pitiful George Papadopoulos – in an effort to “dirty them up.”  The strategy was to convince these two to take meetings with Russian nationals or people with Russian contacts so that he could then report back to the CIA that he had “observed” these meetings, thus creating the “raw intelligence” necessary for Brennan to authorize Comey’s FBI to open a counterintelligence investigation into the Trump Campaign, which is exactly what happened on August 1, 2016.

Got it?  A classic entrapment operation.  The entire Russia Collusion fantasy play was a set-up from day one.  This is the “insurance policy” that Super-Duper FBI Agent Peter Strzok referenced in one of his 50,000 texts to his mistress Lisa Page.  As early as July 2016, the FBI/CIA deep state cabal had a plan to activate this “insurance policy” on the off chance that Trump won the election.  And the Pantsuit Princess was well aware of it all along, which explains her funding of the fake Trump Dossier and why she started talking about Russia Collusion the day after the election.

Now that all of this has been uncovered by independent researchers – doing the job of the incurious fake journalists who infest American Pravda – and with the next report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz looming, the deep state cabal and its congressional and media support group have moved on from the cover-up phase of their falling-apart conspiracy to the justification phase.  So you end up with the incredibly absurd rationalizing pieces we’ve seen in the Times and the Post this week, and congressional co-conspirators like Mark Warner sending out tweets of desperation on a Friday evening.

Interestingly, President Trump issued this tweet on Saturday afternoon:

It has been well-discussed that the President has the absolute authority to declassify any document and force its release.  This tweet indicates he is at least considering doing that related to some of the thousands of documents that the FBI and DOJ have refused to release to congressional committees over the last year.

Somewhere, Rod Rosenstein is sweating even more than usual.

Just another day in the conspiracy to take down a president is falling apart America.

That is all.

In the Wake of Santa Fe, Maybe President Trump Should Take Andrew Cuomo’s Advice

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

There’s this big wedding going on over in England as I write this, and for the life of me I can’t figure out why any American gives a damn.  I’m just irritated because I won’t be getting my morning dose of news.

In the real world, there was another tragic school shooting on Friday, this time in Santa Fe, Texas, and all I can wonder is how long it will take before we find out that the Barney Fifes at the FBI had the killer under surveillance but did nothing to stop him.  Being from Texas, I pray we don’t find out he had been disciplined by school officials more than 50 times for threatening and violent behavior, and that the local authorities had been called to his house more than 30 times in the few years leading up to the killings, and also did nothing.

Whatever the facts of the killer’s sordid life, here’s a fact no one can deny:  10 more innocent people – 9 students and 1 teacher – are dead, having been killed in another of America’s “gun-free zones,” which progressives like to keep our public schools, and 99% of those schools remain open targets for the depraved, demented potential killers lurking in pretty much every community in the country.  Failing to note that the killing spree ended only when good guys with guns showed up and took the killer down like the animal that he is, liberal politicians everywhere grabbed the tragedy as an opportunity to score political points, which of course is what liberal politicians do with any good tragedy.

Never one to be outdone in the realm of rank hypocrisy, Andrew Cuomo, who presides as Governor over the peaceful, killing-free province of New York, sent an “open letter” (God, how I detest open letters) via his Twitter account (God, how I detest even more open letters sent on Twitter – the emptiest gesture known to mankind) to President Donald Trump:

Here is why Cuomo’s letter is so vile and detestable – even more detestable than your standard liberal self-serving reaction that inevitably follows tragedies such as this.  The public schools in America are controlled at the state and local levels of government.  The federal government provides funding and a flood of counterproductive “guidelines”, i.e. “dictates” that come with that funding, but the campuses themselves are governed by the states and local officials.

The fact is that Andrew Cuomo has done exactly nothing to protect New York’s school children in his eight years as governor.  New York’s public schools remain wide open potential killing fields just as most schools in the other 49 states in the nation remain.  As one Twitter user responded to Cuomo, “Why don’t YOU do something in the State of NY that is so terrific that the rest of the States in the USA will follow? IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO LEAD!”

Trust me, we don’t want Andrew Cuomo leading other states on this or any other issue.  Talk about the road to ruin.

And what would Cuomo have the President unilaterally use the power of his office to do?  Constitutionally, he could conceivably declare a national emergency and call in the National Guard to patrol every public school in America.  Otherwise, not much he can do on his own.

Imagine the liberal wailing if he took that step.  Literally every person working at CNN would have a case of the vapors for weeks.  John Brennan and James Comey would dictate another 4,000 word piece to the New York Times justifying putting 13 spies in the White House.  The DNC would respond by appointing Louis Farrakhan its chairman.  Dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria!

Come to think of it, maybe calling in the National Guard is just the thing to do.  Seriously, why not try it?  Congress isn’t going to do anything.  Governors like Cuomo are just baying dogs who will never take any effective action to protect children.  Why should our airports and every government building in Washington and Albany be protected by heavy security, but our kids are just left out in the open as easy targets?

Go for it, Mr. President.  If liberal heads explode, so much the better.

Just another day in somebody needs to DO SOMETHING America.

That is all.

That Vaunted “Blue Wave” is Going to Become Just Another Democrat Trail of Tears

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Feel good quote of the week. – “John Brennan…needs a very good lawyer…he’s going to be in front of a grand jury.” – Former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova, speaking last night on the Tucker Carlson Show.

Why does Donald Trump hate women so?????? – Gina Haspel, Donald Trump’s nominee, yesterday became the first woman ever confirmed to become the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency.  This woman’s nomination was opposed by 2 Republicans and 43 Democrats in the U.S. Senate.

As far as I can tell, the biggest black mark against Ms. Haspel was the glowing endorsement she received from John Brennan.  Certainly does give one pause.

This is in the New York Times so it’s probably fake news, but the fake newspaper of record has a report that big Hollywood muckety-muck agent Jay Sures has recently shopped a new show concept to both CNN and MSNBC.  Sures’ big idea is to create a sort of “Crossfire” reboot pairing up …wait for it…Steve Scaramucci and Michael Avenatti!  That’s right, The Mooch vs. the Creepy Porn Lawyer, a match made in hell.

ummm…No thanks.

Why does the fake news media hate Israel?  Good question, though the answer is pretty obvious. – Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz has a very good piece in the Washington Examiner titled “Why Does The Media Encourage Hamas Violence Against Israel?”

It’s a very valid question, because there is no doubt at all that the American media does this, with its incredibly biased coverage of events involving clashes between Hamas-directed “Palestinians” and the Israeli armed forces.  The latest such event, of course, took place earlier this week, when Hamas sent thousands of armed protesters to try to breach a border wall.

When more than 4 dozen of the “Palestinians” ended up dead, the U.S. media all sang from the same fake hymnal, declaring it a massacre of “peaceful” protesters.  When Hamas later freely admitted that almost all of the dead were in fact armed Hamas terrorist thugs, the American media dropped the story like a hot potato.

The obvious answer to the Professor’s question, of course, is that pretty much every fake reporter, editor and talking head in the American news media is a liberal, and liberals have been taught in American universities to hate Israel with a passion for the last several decades.  This anti-Israel bias bleeds into all their reporting, and you end up with the feeding frenzy we saw on Monday and Tuesday of this week.

The better question is this:  Why do most American Jews continue to vote for liberal politicians, almost all of whom hate Israel, too?  It’s one of the most persistent and maddening aspects of American politics.  Perhaps Mr. Dershowitz, a life-long Democrat, should ask that question of himself.

 

The Examiner also has a report on discussions taking place among the GOP leadership in congress to cancel this year’s month-long August congressional recess:

“Republicans are threatening to keep the Senate open for an extended summer session to process agenda items delayed by Democratic obstruction. But the political benefits of denying incumbent Democrats valuable time on the campaign trail is also factor in the Republicans’ deliberations, and why they appear more willing that usual to give up a treasured annual vacation.”

Before anyone gets too excited about this proposition – which would be an outstanding strategic move – we should all remember that the same discussions took place last year, and the milquetoast Republican leaders ultimately decided they didn’t want to take the media heat they’d receive for actually sticking around Washington and getting the people’s business done.

The wild card this year, though, is the fact that Kevin McCarthy, Steve Scalise and Jim Jordan, the three men competing to succeed Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House, are all more aggressive partisans than Ryan has ever been.  We can hope that pressure from these men might prod Ryan into doing the right thing here, but it is still ultimately a decision that will be made by Ryan and the depressingly non-aggressive Mitch McConnell.

Bottom line:  Be happy if it happens, but don’t go buy any celebratory champagne until it does.

MS-13 is a bunch of sub-human animals – what’s the question here? – After the fake news media uniformly lied about President Trump’s description of MS-13 gang members on Wednesday as “animals”  – dishonestly claiming in unison that the President was applying the pejorative term to all immigrants – Mr. Trump was asked about the matter again at an unrelated White House event yesterday evening.  His answer was not surprising:

“When the MS-13 comes in, when the other gang members come into our country, I refer to them as animals and guess what — I always will,” Trump told reporters”.

Asked and answered.

Given that the Democrat Party and the fake news media are just two elements of a single political apparatus these days, this and other episodes over the last week bring this question to mind:  What does the Democrat Party stand for going into the 2018 mid-term elections?

As far as I can tell, here is the current Democrat Platform:

  • They support Hamas, a group that has been listed as a terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department since the Clinton Administration, and hate Israel, our country’s most loyal ally for half a century;
  • They support MS-13;
  • They support the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea over the American President;
  • They support the Mullahs in Iran over the American President;
  • They’re going to raise your taxes;
  • They favor impeaching the President;
  • They want to de-fund the military;
  • They want to repeal the 2nd Amendment;
  • They’re against freedom of speech;
  • They want to eliminate borders, and thus end U.S. sovereignty;
  • They want to give everyone a job in the government and free college, but have no plan how to fund either.

These are all positions that have been expressed by leaders of the Democrat Party in just the last week.  This is not a winning formula.

That vaunted “blue wave” is going to end up becoming just another Democrat “trail of tears.”

Just another day in it’s all falling apart for the Democrats America.

That is all.

Buckle up, Folks: “Crossfire Hurricane” Means Things Are About to Speed Up

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Some things to think about as we enter the next phase of this war against the Deep State and the Cabal within DOJ and the FBI that first tried to fix the 2016 election outcome for the Pantsuit Princess, and have spent the last 18 months attempting to bring down the duly-elected President of the United States:

  • Wednesday’s “Crossfire Hurricane” article published by the fake New York Times marks the end of the cover-up phase of this conspiracy.  The more you read that article in detail, the more you realize it has, in the effort to provide justification for the Cabal’s actions, in fact exposed pretty much every detail of the conspiracy.
  • One striking aspect of the report is that, where all the previous fake reports filed by the Times and WaPo in their efforts to help cover up for the Cabal cited only “unidentified sources”, you suddenly have people like Sally Yates, Mary McCord and some others talking on the record in an effort to cover themselves.  This never happened while the cover-up was going on.
  • We are now beginning to see selective leaks today of certain specifics contained in the report of DOJ IG Michael Horowitz, which is being circulated at DOJ and the FBI so those who are named in it have a chance to provide responses.  Those leaks are not coming from the good guys, who have kept this process utterly devoid of leaks for 17 months now.
  • The leaks are coming from the targets, in an effort get the information into the public domain so that their media support group can publish more fake articles providing justification for the cabal’s actions.
  • By the way, note that only the bad actors who remain employed at DOJ and FBI get the opportunity to read the report in advance.  Those who have already been given their walking papers – people with names like McCabe and Yates and McCord and Page and Baker and Comey and Brennan and Lynch and on and on and on – receive no such opportunity.
  • This helps explain why the only people talking on the record to the Times were people who no longer worked at those agencies.  It also makes it very likely that the leaks are coming from the bad actors still employed.  Think about it.
  • We need to also remember something key here:  While the Times article claims that the Cabal was very careful to keep its actions secret so as not to lend credibility to Trump’s claims of a rigged election, the truth is that details of what was going on were being leaked all over the damn place in real time.  The media was filled with anonymously-sourced articles detailing accusations about Carter Page, General Flynn and Paul Manafort throughout the summer and fall of 2016.  Where are we supposed to believe this information was coming from?  The answer is obvious, and that leads to the next bullet point here, which is…
  • …there are some in the fake news media who were complicit in all of this.  Reporters and editors and TV hosts who were coordinating efforts and messages and timing of articles with this effort to fix the election, and later with the effort to take down the President.  As the evidence of wrongdoing is presented in the IG report and in court cases that will follow, it will not be all that difficult for independent researchers to go back through the media record to figure out who those complicit individuals are.  This scandal does not end at the exit to the Hoover Building.
  • Finally, one of the leaks about the Horowitz report today is particularly interesting to me:  Real journalist Paul Sperry issued this tweet on Thursday afternoon:

  • If true, this clearly demonstrates the coordinated effort going on between Horowitz and his army of more than 400 investigators and Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber.  If you remember, Attorney General Jeff Sessions cleverly let it be known in an interview several weeks back that he didn’t need to create a second Special Counsel because he had had Huber and his team working in coordination with the IG since at least last October.  It is very, very likely that Huber has had at least one, and possibly multiple grand juries convened for months now, and that he will be ready to move quickly towards prosecuting the bad actors once the IG’s report has been issued.

If you think things have been moving quickly up to now, well, better buckle up, because they’re only going to move faster from here on out.

That is all.

Comey, Strzok and Their Crossfire Hurricane Band of Conspirators!

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – The ratings at the fakest fakety fake news outlet in America, CNN, have been sliding like a comb down Brian Stelter’s crown during the month of May.  The #fakenews channel lost fully 30% of its audience year-over-year through the second week of the month, with its highest-rated hour ranking behind the lowest-rated hour of the day at rival Fox News.  If it weren’t for the fact that every airport in America feels the need to inflict travelers with CNN’s fake reporting 24 hours a day, no one outside of New York, Washington, LA and Seattle would even know who Jake Tapper is.  Couldn’t happen to a better bunch of people.

Gosh, Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz has been telling them that for a year.  So has George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley.  Glad they finally figured it out. – Presidential counsel Rudy Giuliani, a former U.S. attorney himself, told reporters yesterday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team has admitted to him that they cannot indict a sitting president.  Naturally, CNN, going after all the fake news that’s fit to post at their fake website, went out and found Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal, to claim that Giuliani and the Mueller team are wrong.  Blumenthal is not a former U.S. attorney, and is most famous for claiming to have seen combat that he never saw in Vietnam in order to get elected to the senate.  You can take whose ever word for this you want, but the choice doesn’t seem all that hard to make.

“I was born in a crossfire hurricane, and I howled at the maw in the drivin’ rain.” – Yesterday’s Campaign Update focused on the fact that all roads in the deep state cabal effort within the FBI and DOJ ultimately lead to the desk of FBI Super-Duper Agent Peter Strzok.  A few hours after that piece was posted, the fake reporters at the New York Times issued an “investigative” report on the FBI’s “investigation” into “possible Russia ties” by members of the Trump Campaign, another road that leads right back to Strzok.

This report reads as if it was actually written by Agent Strzok and his mistress, ex-DOJ lawyer Lisa Page, filled with all manner of misleading and outright false language designed to cast the FBI’s actions in the best light possible.

To give you an idea of the juvenile delinquent mindset within the FBI at the time, the project to spy (the Times’ fake reporters conveniently avoid that word, but let’s be honest, that’s what it was) on the Trump Campaign was given the name “Crossfire Hurricane,” a reference to a line in the Rolling Stones hit “Jumpin’ Jack Flash.”  Hey, at least they didn’t name it “Standing in the Shadows,” or “19th Nervous Breakdown.”

Here’s a great example of the misleading prose in the piece:

“Crossfire Hurricane spawned a case that has brought charges against former Trump campaign officials and more than a dozen Russians.”

Ok, but exactly none of those charges have anything at all to do with anyone in the Trump campaign “colluding” with anyone from Russia.  The charges against Paul Manafort are for bank fraud and tax evasion that allegedly happened a decade ago.  General Mike Flynn’s guilty plea is for a process charge, and is about to be reversed.  The nonsense indictments of the 13 Russian defendants is for setting up a few thousand social media accounts that pounded negative messages against both Trump and the Pantsuit Princess, and for staging rallies that also attacked both candidates.

But you’ll never see the truth about those indictments published in the New York Times – doesn’t fit the narrative.

Here’s another great example:

The facts, had they surfaced, might have devastated the Trump campaign: Trump’s future national security adviser was under investigation, as was his campaign chairman. One adviser appeared to have Russian intelligence contacts. Another was suspected of being a Russian agent himself.

Those two people the Times is talking about there?  The sad Carter Page and even sadder hanger-on George Papadopoulos.  And those Russian contacts they “appeared to have” and “was suspected” of having?  Turned out to be utter nonsense.

But again, you can’t expect the New York Times to point that out – doesn’t fit the narrative.

And how about Super-Duper Agent Peter Strzok?  As in every other aspect of this conspiracy to fix the 2016 election, he was a big player in all of this.  His texts with Page are quoted throughout the article, and many of his interactions with other conspirators like Andrew McCabe, Comey and CIA Director John Brennan are also mentioned, always placed in the best possible light by the shill fake reporters.

The reason for the timing of this fake report is obvious.  About 5 minutes after the fake report was published, the news also hit that DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz was circulating his own report in-house at the FBI and DOJ so the principle subjects of the report can have their chance to review it before it is made public.  So the Times, in its role as official media mouthpiece for the deep state, wanted to get this pre-explainer justifying the conspiracy to deny Trump the presidency out into the public domain in advance of Horowitz’s official report.

The Times‘ fake report, obviously dictated by the participants in the conspiracy, is a digraceful and despicable example of how the formerly respectable profession of journalism has pretty much died in America.  That these people are willing to so obviously and openly coordinate efforts with the conspirators who are still working to take down a duly-elected government is a stain from which the fake newspaper can never recover.

But you know what?  I think the Stones ultimately got it right in that song:

But it’s all right now, in fact, it’s a gas
But it’s all right, I’m Jumpin’ Jack Flash

It’s a gas, gas gas!

Just another day in it’s all right now, in fact it’s a gas America.

That is all.

All Deep State Cabal Roads Eventually Lead to Peter Strzok

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

It was a dirty job, but somebody had to do it. – Texas Congressman and former state Appeals Court Justice Louie Gohmert published a devastating criticism of ex-FBI Director Robert Mueller on Tuesday.  Those of you who still believe that the Witch Hunter in Chief is some sort of sterling individual with an unassailable background of defending truth, justice and the American Way should take half an hour out of your day today and read it.  It will disabuse you forever of those silly notions.

I was already aware of most of the despicable corruption in Mueller’s background, but one item I had not been aware of until reading Gohmert’s piece was the “5 Years Up or Out Policy” he implemented while FBI Director.  This policy required that, “after an FBI employee was in any type of supervisory position for five years, he or she had to either come to Washington to sit at a desk or get out of the FBI.”

This idiotic policy mirrors policies used in the private sector by giant corporations as a means of passively-aggressively keeping their workforce younger and less expensive by encouraging older, more expensive employees to resign or take demotions in place rather than being forced to change job locations.  In practice, corporations see the money saved by forcing younger workers into mid-level management positions before they’re really qualified outweighing the loss of institutional knowledge.

But at the nation’s premier law enforcement agency, this massive loss of experience and institutional knowledge and – perhaps most importantly – historic case knowledge was devastating.  For Mueller, Gohmert speculates that the most satisfying aspect of the policy was that it robbed the agency of more experienced agents who are naturally going to be more likely to question the judgement and authority of senior FBI management.

It also resulted in juvenile delinquents like Super-Duper Agent Peter Strzok and Attorney Lisa Page being thrust into positions that were well above their competence or maturity levels.  This juvenilization of the FBI made it much easier for Barack Obama and Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch and James Comey to come in and utterly corrupt what had become an organization filled with yes-men-and-women.

Again, regardless of your opinion of Mueller, go read the piece.  You’ll be smarter for having done so.

Cause, meet Effect. – Speaking of Super Duper Agent Peter Strzok, here’s a great practical example of how Mueller’s efforts to juvenilize the agency, having thrust this emotional midget (as clearly demonstrated by his 50,000 texts with his mistress) into a senior position in the FBI’s counterintelligence division, rendered the Agency more vulnerable to corruption.

We’ve long known that Strzok was one of the agents who interviewed General Mike Flynn in an effort to entrap him into lying to the FBI; we’ve long known that Strzok was smack-dab in the middle of the sham investigation into Princess Pantsuit’s illegal email server; we’ve long known that he played a role in misleading the FISA court into issuing a warrant to spy on the Trump Campaign; in fact, at pretty much every turn in the scheme to fix the 2016 election and then to force Donald Trump from office, Strzok’s name just keeps turning up.  Yesterday, it got even worse.

In a terrific piece at RealClearInvestigations, Paul Sperry reveals that Super-Duper Agent Strzok was also involved in constructing the daily intelligence briefings for then-President Barack Obama.  But it’s not just that he was involved, but that he was in fact hand-selected by then-CIA Director John Brennan to serve as the intermediary for information flow between Brennan and ex-FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey:

A source close to the House investigation said Brennan himself selected the CIA and FBI analysts who worked on the ICA, and that they included former FBI counterespionage chief Peter Strzok.

“Strzok was the intermediary between Brennan and [former FBI Director James] Comey, and he was one of the authors of the ICA,” according to the source. [emphasis added]

So, what’s the big deal?  The big deal is that Brennan was obviously using the extremely compliant and malleable Strzok to control the information Comey received, and what ultimately got to the President of the United States of America.  Comey’s been running around the country claiming “I don’t know” about all sorts of things that took place under his watch during this period of time, and in many instances those denials are no doubt true because Brennan, through Strzok, made sure he didn’t know.

Brennan’s use of Strzok in this role also potentially resolves this burning question:  Why were Page and ex-FBI General Counsel James Baker jettisoned from their demoted positions a few weeks ago while Strzok has been kept in place?  All three have obviously been serving as cooperating witnesses with the ongoing investigations by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber since last fall – so why were Page and Baker released from their in-house purgatory while Super-Duper Agent Strzok remains sheltered in place?

The answer now seems obvious:  Only Strzok has direct knowledge of the entire information flow on all the DOJ/FBI shenanigans during and following the 2016 campaign, all the way up to the office of the presidency.  So he’s not quite done yet.

The great irony in all of this is that Mueller, the guy whose idiotic policies literally created Super-Duper Agent Peter Strzok, is now running the sham investigation designed to deflect the media’s and public’s attention away from the monster that he himself created.  If you were still wondering why Rod Rosenstein specifically chose Mueller to be his Special Counsel, well, now you know.  Mueller not only knows where all the bodies are buried, he literally created them.

Just another day in all roads lead to Peter Strzok America.

That is all.

Mueller’s Big Problem: He Keeps Drawing Judges Who Have Read the Constitution

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – There has been much cause for optimism lately as Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his evil band of Clinton/Obama hacks have repeatedly run into trouble when their cases must finally be heard in federal court.

Mueller’s people most famously had to endure a lecture from Federal Judge T.S. Ellis on May 4 when the judge lambasted them for basically lying to the court in an effort to claim their case against former Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort has anything to do with the Special Counsel’s charge to investigate the Democrat/Media-constructed Russia Collusion fantasy.  Their day before Judge Ellis became even worse when he demanded that they produce the memos from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that laid out the scope of their investigation, and do so by this coming Friday.  The oily Mr. Rosenstein has fought tooth and nail to keep those memos confidential, on the specious grounds that they contain “classified” information.  Oops.

The Mueller team had another major stumble in court the very next day, when Federal Judge Dabney Friedrich denied their motion for a delay in their absurd case against the Russian firm Concord Management.  Concord is one of the 13 Russian entities that Mueller and his evil minions indicted back in February in a transparently dishonest effort to show their investigation has at least some tenuous connection to the whole Russia Collusion fantasy play.

To make matters even more Keystone Cop-ish, one of the Concord-related companies indicted by Mueller’s band of aspiring circus clowns, Concord Catering, did not even exist at the time the Mueller team claims it was engaged in social media shenanigans.  Oops.

The catch in issuing those indictments, of course, was that the Mueller minions never expected to have to prosecute any of their specious charges, because they assumed none of the accused would actually show up in a U.S. court voluntarily.  But Concord showed up, demanded the Court enforce their constitutional right to a speedy trial, and Judge Friedrich ordered the case to move forward.  Oops.

Mueller’s case against former Trump National Security Advisor General Mike Flynn is also hanging on by a thread at this point.  It has become increasingly obvious over the six months since Flynn entered his guilty plea to lying to the FBI that Mueller’s evil minions withheld exculpatory evidence that would likely clear Flynn of the charge.  The tide in this case began to turn when it was taken over by Federal Judge Emmet Sullivan, who is well-known for his disdain for prosecutors who mislead the court.  Oops.

The developments in all three of these cases clearly demonstrate the utterly dishonest nature of the Mueller “investigation.”  Mueller’s operation is not an “investigation” at all:  It is in fact the witch hunt that President Trump has repeatedly alleged it to be.  Yesterday marked the one-year anniversary of Mueller’s baseless appointment by Rosenstein, and in all that time Mueller and his ever-expanding team of witch-hunters have uncovered exactly zero evidence that anyone in the Trump Campaign or transition team colluded with any Russian to influence the 2016 election outcome.

The series of court setbacks are all very encouraging for those non-Democrats and non-fake journalists who have realized all along what a sham the entire Mueller enterprise has been.  But we all need to take a little breath here and realize that all of these encouraging developments have come about largely due to the luck of the draw.  The fact is that to this point, Mueller has suffered some very bad luck in terms of the judges who have been assigned to his cases.

Although a Clinton appointee to the federal bench, Judge Sullivan has long been well-known as a judge who forces both sides to adhere firmly to the rules of evidence and repect for the process.  The case against General Flynn appeared to be a done deal under the original judge assigned to the case, Rudolph Contreras, an Obama appointee to the federal bench.  Contreras was forced to recuse himself from the case in early December when it was publicly revealed that his is a FISA judge who likely signed off on one of the FISA warrants that gave the FBI authority to spy on the Trump Campaign in 2016.  Contreras had no problem allowing Mueller to just do as he pleased.

Judge Ellis is a Reagan appointee.  Judge Friedrich is a Trump appointee.  Both judges have, inconveniently for Mueller and his evil minions, actually read the Constitution and hold a healthy respect for it.  Had Mueller drawn Obama appointees in the Concord or Manafort cases, he’d likely not be having any problems in either case.

It’s key to note that judges are assigned to these cases on a random draw basis.  Thus, to this point, Mueller has been extremely unlucky, given that there are more Clinton and Obama appointees populating the Virginia and Washington, DC federal bench – where Mueller’s grand juries are convened – than there are Reagan, Bush and Trump appointees.

We can’t count on that luck to continue.  At some point Mueller will draw an Obama judge, and any notion of due process and constitutional protections for the defense will fly right out the window.  Just something to think about as this mess keeps moving ahead.

Just another day in let’s hope Mueller’s bad luck continues America.

That is all.

The Deep State Assault on Devin Nunes Reeks of Desperation

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – At 8:00 a.m CT today, the U.S. embassy in Israel will formally transfer its operations from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.  The promise to make this move has been made by every U.S. president since George H. W. Bush.  It took President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those words) to actually keep the promise on behalf of 315 million Americans.

Oh, by all means, share away. – A senior official in the Iranian government issued a threat to the United States and other countries over the weekend that all 315 million Americans should welcome.  Well, all, that is, except those members of the Obama Administration and their hangers- on who allegedly accepted bribes to make the horrible deal with Iran happen. Because they, if they exist, are the target of the threat.

H.J.Ansari Zarif, the deputy for parliamentary and Iranian affairs within Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said he would do the dirty work:  “If Europeans stop trading with Iran and don’t put pressure on US then we will reveal which western politicians and how much money they had received during nuclear negotiations to make #IranDeal happen,” Mr. Zarif reportedly said.

Gosh, maybe that explains why John Kerry has continued his serial violations of the Logan Act even after President Trump announced he was ending U.S. participation in the terrible deal that he negotiated.  On Saturday, Kerry was spotted meeting with three Iranian officials in a Paris cafe’, with one patron claiming he overheard the former Secretary of State railing against President Trump during the conversation, before being photographed lurching away from the meeting by another diner.

Seriously, I have no idea if any actual “bribery” took place during the sham negotiations over the deal, but it would help to explain why some members of the Obama Administration were so anxious to commit the U.S. to an agreement in which our country gained literally nothing.  So if there really is evidence of any such bribery, by all means, share away, Mr. Zarif.  Don’t leave us hanging here.

The deep state is really, really worried about Devin Nunes, and we should all be just fine with that. – Speaking to some audience of poor saps in Washington over the weekend, ex-FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey said that, in his pursuit of actual information from deep state thugs at the Justice Department and the FBI, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes is “acting dangerously.”

“You cannot overstate the danger in that kind of behavior to the security of the United States,” Comey said.

Comey’s absurd statements align directly – shocking, I know – with recent talking points targeting Nunes in the fake news media, and with recent statements by Deputy U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein, who called Nunes’ legitimate efforts to obtain information from DOJ under his committee’s oversight responsibilities “extortion.”  Holy cow.

But it only got more extreme from Comey:

Comey, who was fired by President Trump last year, said he’s never seen this level of pressure for the intelligence community to abdicate information about a protected source. He warned this effort “risks the death of the thing that is at the core of our ability to protect this country.”

Let’s review here what Chairman Nunes is currently after from our deep state DOJ.  He is looking for the name of the supposed “intelligence asset” who Obama CIA Director John Brennan used as the basis for the communication he sent over to the FBI in July 2016 formally authorizing the commencement of a counterintelligence operation against the Trump Campaign.  He is attempting to determine if this “asset” had been inserted into the Trump Campaign by the Obama intelligence community, or if he was interacting with members of the Trump Campaign in a classic spy effort to “dirty them up” to give the appearance of wrongdoing.

The truth is that Nunes and many other people already know the identity of the person in question, as his name has been uncovered by enterprising independent investigators and has been bandied about all over the internet over the past four days, along with documentation that, in late September 2016, he was paid a very large amount of money by the intelligence community with taxpayer dollars for his efforts.  And the truth is that the FBI had already been conducting a counterintelligence operation against the Trump Campaign well before it received the communication from Mr. Brennan authorizing same.  We’ve known that for some time now.

This is what James Comey and John Brennan and all the other Obama deep staters are so desperate to cover up:  The Obama Administration was actively spying on and attempting to entrap members of the presidential campaign of the opposition party.  This is the most shocking breach of the public trust ever committed by any presidential administration, and Devin Nunes is intent upon exposing it to the public.

So it’s no wonder that the public statements by Mr. Comey and the shrill tweets coming out of Mr. Brennan literally reek of desperation.  These are really bad, really guilty people who engaged in the worst sort of betrayal under the belief it would all be covered up when Hillary Clinton won the election.

Just one problem:  Hillary didn’t win.  Oops.

Just another day in the deep state is reeking of desperation America.

That is all.

The Media Campaign to Downplay Trump’s Deal With North Korea has Begun

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Open borders in action! – A 20 year-old Muslim man was shot and killed by Paris police after he had gone on a knifing campaign in which he murdered one victim and injured four others, shouting “Allahu akbar!” as went about his merry way.  The man had claimed asylum as a Chechnyan refugee 10 years before.  Fake analysts on CNN and MSNBC will spend the next month agonizing over what this poor man’s motivation could possibly have been.

Your fake news media in action! – Well, the media campaign to downplay the coming deal with North Korea to de-nuclearize the Korean peninsula has begun.  It was so predictable, but still so tiresome.

Writing at Politico, some guy named Anthony Ruggiero, a senior fellow at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, says that the Crazy Little Fat Guy is setting a trap for Donald Trump.  He cites as his reasons for thinking this “lessons” from previous negotiations with leaders in North Korea.  Hooboy.  Here’s the link – read the whole thing for yourself if you have 7-10 minutes to waste.

Look, this deal is already done.  The major points have already been negotiated, and all that’s going to be hammered out over the next few weeks before President Trump and Kim Jong Un meet in Singapore in early June are the remaining details.  Contrary to what Ruggiero says in his piece, every signal we have seen related to this event indicates that the major points of an agreement were settled weeks ago.  President Trump’s public statements on the matter indicate that, Kim’s concessions since early April indicate that, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s multiple trips to North Korea indicate that.

Donald Trump is not Barack Obama or George W. Bush or Bill Clinton, the presidents who tried and failed to reach some sort of accommodation with previous members of the Kim dynasty.  Trump is not negotiating from a position of weakness and appeasement with the Crazy Little Fat Guy.  He is not, as were his predecessors, especially concerned about what the Brits or the French or the Germans think about it all.  He doesn’t give a damn what the UN Security Council’s concerns might be.

This is a deal that has been struck between the U.S., South Korea, Japan, China and Russia – Kim is only a bit player in all of this.  Japan is sick of having to worry about the little nitwit firing off a nuke and taking out one of its cities, South Korea is sick of having to spend so much of its national treasure defending itself from its northern neighbor, and Russia and China are sick of dealing with all of the tension and disruption in trade and their economies that Kim’s antics create.

Contrary to Ruggiero’s claims, we have not seen concessions of the sort we have seen from North Korea this time in advance of prior negotiations.  Think of the major concessions Kim has made since April 1:

  • The formal end of the Korean War and the standoff at the demilitarized zone with South Korea, a tense situation that had gone on for 64 years;
  • The release of three political prisoners well in advance of the meeting with President Trump, with no U.S. concessions of any kind in return.  No easing of sanctions, no bags of money, nothing.;
  • The announcement of the dismantling of his main nuclear testing site in advance of the meeting with Trump, inviting international journalists and other observers to be present when it happens.

Yes, there have been releases of political prisoners before, but the other two concessions are completely without any similar precedent whatsoever.  After all, how many times can you end a 64 year-old war, or dismantle a nuclear testing site?

One of the bits of sage wisdom that Ruggiero offers President Trump is to “Be prepared to walk away from the table,” something the President himself has publicly said he’d be ready to do on at least a dozen occasions.  Great catch there, guy.

But there will be no walking away from the table, because this deal is already done.  Donald Trump is not going to fly Air Force One all the way over to Singapore on June 12 unless he knows in advance that the deal is complete and everybody is going to walk away happy.

Ruggeiro’s bio notes that he spent 17 years in the U.S. government.  He might want to spend a few hours reading Trump’s book.

Expect to see the media campaign to downplay the upcoming deal with North Korea and deny Trump credit for it to really start ramping up in the coming week.  Ruggiero’s piece is just the first shot across the bow.  Yes, it’s extremely tiresome, but that’s all these people have at this point.

Just another day in Donald Trump just keeps on winning for America.

That is all.

Progressives Want to Kill You, But Starbucks Wants to Kill Itself

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Progressives want to kill you, Part I – The gals on The View never cease to humiliate themselves by putting their true hateful nature on display.  Generally, it’s the execrable Joy Behar leading the pack of shrews, but on Friday it was Whoopi Goldberg doing the honors, expressing her wish that the President of the United States be water-boarded.  You can watch the clip here.

Progressives want to kill you, Part II – Not to be outdone, Nicolle Wallace over at MSNBC expressed her desire to choke White House spokesperson and mother of three small children Sarah Huckabee Sanders:

Progressives want to kill you, Part III – Maxine Waters had another meltdown on the floor of the House of Representatives yesterday.  You can watch it for yourself here.  No need for further comment.

Progressives:  If they didn’t exist, no one in their right mind would ever want to make them up.

You sure about this?  Because it’s not going to end well for you. – In the wake of an incident in April in which two black men were ridiculously arrested while waiting for a third person to show up before they ordered some coffee, Starbucks Executive Chairman Howard Schulz announced on Friday that the restrooms in all Starbucks stores will now be open to everyone, regardless of whether a person orders anything or not.  Hilariously, Schulz then later told reporters that he doesn’t want his stores to become “public restrooms.”

Well, sorry, bubba, but that’s exactly what’s going to happen if you truly do carry out your stated policy.  This will be especially true in the interiors of large cities run by Democrats.

True story:  I was in Austin a few weeks ago, and needed to kill a little time, so I popped into one of the city’s downtown Starbucks.  After getting my coffee, I looked around the otherwise crowded store and noted several empty tables in one corner, so I went and grabbed one.  As I was booting up my laptop, I became aware of a heated conversation involving two distinctly different male voices coming from the table over my left shoulder.

After this had gone on for a few minutes, with the conversation becoming increasingly profane and nasty, I glanced over my shoulder and realized that this “conversation” was in fact being carried on by a single man, an obvious vagrant who had taken shelter inside the Starbucks.  I then understood why that area of the otherwise very busy store had been vacated.

If Mr. Schulz’s policy is actually implemented, this scene and much worse is about to be replicated in pretty much every inner-city Starbucks store in the country.  The restrooms will not only become “public,” they will also become run-down, filthy and bereft of paying customers.  This is not a guess, this is not a likelihood, this is an inevitable outcome.

The best news about this new Starbucks policy is that it will create a very fertile playing field for new competitors to move into the downtown areas of our nation’s large cities.  Because people are still going to want their coffee – they’ll just want to be able to enjoy it without feeling threatened or accosted.

Has anyone seen Harvey Weinstein lately? – Mysterious massive “globster” creature washes up on Philippines beach.

Well, uh, McCain’s not a “conservative,” so… – Writing for Reason, Matt Welch published a piece yesterday that asks this burning question:  “Will McCain-style Conservatism Live On?”

Of course, the answer is that so long as consummate RINOs like Lindsey Graham, Jeff Flake, Susan Collins and Bob Corker infest the United States Senate, then the McCain-style whatever-it-is will indeed live on.  Calling this combination of open borders, gigantic spending, war-mongering and social liberalsm in any way “conservatism” is a bad joke, and Mr. Welch should know better.

The good news here, though, is that the RINOs are leaving the U.S. Congress in droves these days, with Flake and Corker being two among the many Senate and House members who have chosen not to seek re-election this year.  Their replacements are going to be real conservatives who understand that the Democrat Party declared war on America’s culture and institutions way back in 1992, and the Republican Party utterly failed to engage them in it until Donald Trump became President last January 20.

Hopefully, more RINOs will follow the wonderful examples set by Flake and Corker and take the easy way out over the next couple of election cycles.  It’s best for everyone.

Just another day in Progressives want to kill you America.

That is all.

As The Week Ends, Chuck Grassley Drops a Bomb of His Own

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Well, there’s never a dull moment in Washington, DC these days.  It seems we can never get to the end of a work week without major new developments in the whole Russia Collusion fantasy play getting dropped into the mix for the weekend.

Tired of being stonewalled by the tag team of Rosenstein and Wray, Grassley late this afternoon sent a letter over to both men demanding documents his Senate Judiciary Committee had first requested more than a year ago.  Specifically, Sen. Grassley is interested in seeing the underlying FBI documentation that was provided to Special Counsel Robert Mueller related to the General Mike Flynn guilty plea, including the 302 forms created by all FBI agents who were present at the initial interview of General Flynn.

When Grassley and his committee initially requested these documents in March of 2017, DOJ and the FBI responded by sending ex-FBI Director and current teenage drama queen Jim Comey up to capital hill to offer a closed-door briefing on the matter.  In his letter today, Grassley confirms that, during that testimony, Comey told the committee that the FBI agents who interviewed Flynn saw no reason to believe he lied to them during the meeting, an assertion that Comey, in his preparation for his coming criminal defense, is now running all over the country denying.

This is a big deal, if for no other reason than that it places just one more pressure point on Rosenstein and Wray to end their long efforts to stonewall congressional investigators.  The letter also places major new pressure on Comey to come clean with the following passage:

“The Justice Department declined to provide any of that information, and instead then-FBI Director Comey provided a wide-ranging briefing to us on March 15, 2017 that touched on the Flynn issues.

Like the Flynn interview itself, that briefing was not transcribed. Also like the Flynn
interview, there are notes taken by a career, non-partisan law enforcement officer who was
present. The agent was on detail to the Committee staff at the time. According to that agent’s
contemporaneous notes, Director Comey specifically told us during that briefing that the FBI
agents who interviewed Lt. General Michael Flynn, “saw nothing that led them to believe [he
was] lying.” Our own Committee staff’s notes indicate that Mr. Comey said the ‘agents saw no
change in his demeanor or tone that would say he was being untruthful.'”

So, not only do the committee’s notes reflect Comey’s assertion of Flynn’s truthfulness during that meeting, the notes of a “career, non-partisan law enforcement officer who was…on detail to the Committee staff at the time” reflect the same thing.

Again, this revelation, along with the May 25 deadline set by Grassley for production of these records, is a big deal.  The walls just keep closing in on Comey and the rest of the anti-Trump cabal.  Good stuff.

Just another day in Donald Trump just keeps on Winning America.

My name is Devin Nunes, and I am here to drop another bomb.  Boom.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this #Winning yet? Part I – The Pantsuit Princess responded to rumors that she has been wearing some sort of large back brace which protrudes above her shoulders by wearing an $1,100 Hermes scarf.  So, why do we classify this as #Winning?  Because any normal, honest person would simply explain the reason for the back brace that she is obviously wearing.  Anytime any of the dishonest hacks who lead the Democrat Party get caught in another act of dishonesty is #Winning.  Period.

Tired of all this #Winning yet?  Part II – Just in case you thought that CNN poll showing the Democrats’ edge in the generic congressional ballot question had all but disappeared was a fluke, Reuters issued its own poll on Thursday, and it gets even better.  Where the CNN poll showed a 3 point edge for the Democrats – within the poll’s margin of error – the Reuters poll pegs the D advantage at just…wait for it…1 percent.  The Democrat margin in the Reuters poll released just three weeks ago had the Democrats holding an 11 point lead.  That’s #Winning.  Bigly.

My name is Devin Nunes, and I am here to drop another bomb.  Boom. – House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes and House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy met with Justice Department officials on Thursday for a “briefing” related to documents both Republicans have demanded the DOJ provide their committees.

The document in question is an official communication sent in late July, 2016 from then-CIA Director John Brennan to then-FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey.  This electronic communication – or “EC” – formed the official justification for Comey’s decision on July 31, 2016 to initiate a counter-intelligence operation targeting the Donald Trump Campaign.  That EC from Brennan also led to the DOJ’s obtaining of a FISA warrant to wiretap Trump Tower and otherwise spy on the Trump Campaign and Transition Team.

This is a very important document, because it is basically the germinating event that ultimately led to the appointment of Robert Mueller as Special Counsel, and all the of the anti-Trump conspiracy that has brought us up to today.  No congressional committee or other investigating body can possibly get to the bottom of everything that has taken place without having access to that Brennan communication, the EC.

Nunes has for months demanded to see an unredacted version of this document, because he is especially interested to know the name of a specific person who is named within it, and who Brennan claimed had provided him with “intelligence” on the Trump Campaign that supposedly made him concerned enough to want to begin this counter-intelligence operation.  The Washington Post reports that DOJ and the intelligence community don’t want to reveal the person’s name for the familiar “might reveal sources and methods” excuse that these agencies always use to justify their coverups.  The Post also notes that this person has already been identified to the Mueller investigation and has been cooperating with it for months.

So, Mueller gets full information but congressional committees with oversight responsibility do not. See how this works?

And a coverup it is, make no mistake about that.  As Kimberly Strassel notes in a great Wall Street Journal piece, what all this means is that it is very likely that the FBI, well before it received Brennan’s EC justifying the counter-intelligence operation against the Trump Campaign, had either planted an operative within the Trump Campaign or who was interacting with Trump officials in an effort to dirty them up.

As Strassel puts it:

“When government agencies refer to sources, they mean people who appear to be average citizens but use their profession or contacts to spy for the agency. Ergo, we might take this to mean that the FBI secretly had a person on the payroll who used his or her non-FBI credentials to interact in some capacity with the Trump campaign.

This would amount to spying, and it is hugely disconcerting. It would also be a major escalation from the electronic surveillance we already knew about, which was bad enough. Obama political appointees rampantly “unmasked” Trump campaign officials to monitor their conversations, while the FBI played dirty with its surveillance warrant against Carter Page, failing to tell the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that its supporting information came from the Hillary Clinton campaign. Now we find it may have also been rolling out human intelligence, John Le Carré style, to infiltrate the Trump campaign.”

On August 15, 2016, FBI Super Duper Agent Peter Strzok – himself a part of the FBI’s counter-intelligence division – exchanged texts with his passionate lover, DOJ Attorney Lisa Page about an “insurance policy” the DOJ/FBI anti-Trump cabal had in place.  Thanks to the efforts of Devin Nunes, we most likely discovered the nature of that “insurance policy” yesterday.

Ms. Strassel closes her piece by saying she believes she knows the identity of this FBI plant.  It’s pretty obvious that Nunes and Gowdy do as well, but are seeking absolute confirmation before deciding what to do about it.

We keep seeing people in the media toss out the fact that President Trump could end all the speculation by simply declassifying this document, and that is true.  So, why doesn’t he do that, since doing so would likely be to his ultimate advantage vis a vis the Mueller investigation.

The simplest and most probable explanation for that is that this “source” is, in addition to cooperating with the Mueller investigation, also cooperating with DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber in their own investigations into all the wrongdoing that has taken place within the DOJ and FBI since mid-2016.

Boom.

Just another day in Donald Trump just keeps on Winning America.

Hey, Remember That Blue Wave? Yeah, it Ain’t Happening.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this #Winning yet? Part I – The President, First Lady, Vice President and Secretary of State all turned out to Andrews Air Force Base at 2:00 a.m. to welcome home Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim, three Americans who had been held as prisoners for years by the North Korean government.  Their release was a show of good faith by the Crazy Little Fat Guy, Kim Jong Un, in advance of next month’s face-to-face negotiation with President Trump related to the de-nuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

The sight of one of the men hugging Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who had flown halfway across the world to secure their release earlier in the week, was enough to bring tears to the eyes of any thinking person.  Democrats and fake reporters were, of course, unmoved, given that these three men were released as the result of the efforts of President Trump, after having languished in a North Korean prison throughout much of the administration of media hero Barack Obama.

By the way, if you’re sitting there wondering why this kind of thing keeps happening under this President, when we never saw anything similar the previous 8 years, it’s because this President is trying.  It really is that simple.

Your news media in action!  Part I – The deranged lunatics at the New York Times, meanwhile, published a piece Wednesday morning lambasting Secretary Pompeo for being “AWOL” as President Trump announced he was ending U.S. participation in the horrible Iran deal.  Later in the day, after some no-doubt “anonymous source” (because that’s the only kind of sources the New York Times has anymore) informed the morons at the Times that Pompeo was actually rescuing a bunch of political prisoners, the fake newspaper published a piece that was actually positive about the prisoner release. What a dumpster fire.

Your news media in action!  Part II – Speaking of huge, raging dumpster fires, I give you NBC News.  Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen has been the subject of so much fake reporting by the Peacock Network that he felt the need to get on his Twitter account to try to shame the fake news operation into correcting some of his horrible reporting:

That’s right:  NBC News is so fake and lacking in any editorial standards whatsoever that it can’t even identify the correct guy named Michael Cohen before filing its reports.  I mean, dayum, people.

Your Democrats in action! – But the most disgusting spectacle of the day was, without question, watching as some of the very worst people on the face of the earth, like Kamala Harris, Mark Warner and Dianne Feinstein, questioned the nominee for CIA Director, Gina Haspel, about her “moral compass.”  My goodness.

Tired of all this #Winning yet?  Part II.  That Blue Wave is circling down the toilet. – Speaking of Democrats, that much-ballyhooed “Blue Wave” that all the Democrat operatives in the fake news media were telling you was an absolute certainty a few months ago has pretty much fallen off of even CNN’s fake news story rotation.  Maybe that’s because even CNN’s own congressional generic preference poll, which just four months ago claimed the Democrats led Republicans by a whopping 16 points, yesterday came in at just a 3 point Democrat lead, which happens to be within the fake poll’s margin of error.

The CNN result is pretty consistent with the other generic congressional polls, all of which have narrowed up substantially since the first of the year.  Which should come as no surprise to anyone.

I told you back in December that the whole “Blue Wave” thing was just wishful thinking on the part of the Democrats and their media support group.  I predicted then that as the tax cuts kicked into working peoples’ paychecks, the good economic growth news continued coming in, and other good things continued to happen, those numbers would narrow substantially.  I even predicted that the situation with North Korea, which at that time appeared to be a major crisis verging on a military conflict, would in fact be ultimately resolved on largely U.S. terms without a shot being fired.

Guess what’s about to happen?  The situation with North Korea is about to be resolved without a shot being fired.  Guess what will happen to those generic ballot polls when that happy result comes about?  The small Democrat lead will disappear entirely, and by August you’re going to be seeing polls showing that measure has moved into the GOP’s favor.  Hell, at this rate, you might start seeing such polls in June.

But that’s not all that’s about to happen in the coming weeks and months.  The Mueller investigation is about to come to a head, and will be ultimately resolved with no legitimate charges filed against the President.  Mueller may end up writing a report in which he tries to provide the Democrats some basis for an impeachment effort – which has been the goal of this “investigation” since day 1 – but that won’t matter because the Democrats aren’t going to win back control of the House in November.

“But wait, there’s more!”, to quote the late, great Billy Mays.  We’re also about to see the issuance of the final report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, and the subsequent issuance of grand jury subpoenas and indictments targeting – guess who? – not the Trump Administration, but a bunch of Clinton and Obama loyalists.

Bottom line, the 2018 mid-terms will definitely be a “sea-change” election, but not the “blue wave” kind the fake news media was loudly touting a few months ago.  No, the “sea-change” in this campaign will be the massive shift that takes place in the generic congressional ballot polling between last December and this coming November.

And the beauty of all of this is that the Democrat Party leaders are so stupid and out of touch that they decided last year to discard anything resembling a policy agenda and hang their Party’s entire future on promoting hatred for Donald Trump.

Isn’t life great?

Just another day in that Blue Wave ain’t gonna happen America.

That is all.

Trump Ends Iran Deal; Obama Legacy Almost Gone

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this #Winning yet? Part I – San Fran Nan provided GOP candidates with they only ad the need to run in their campaigns this fall, promising to raise taxes if the Democrats regain a majority in the House of Representatives and she becomes Speaker once again.  Seriously, if Republicans didn’t have Nancy Pelosi, they’d have to invent her.  She is their best weapon in this year’s mid-term elections, if they’re smart enough to use her.

Tired of all this #Winning yet? Part II – All that wailing and gnashing of teeth you heard around 7:00 Central Time Tuesday night was emanating from the halls of CNN and MSNBC, where all the mouth-breathers who staff those fake news outlets were crying in their very cheap beers over the fact that Don Blankenship was crashing and burning out in West Virginia.  All the fake news people were praying the extremely goofy Blankenship would prevail in his effort to defeat several other candidates to become the Republican nominee to challenge incumbent Democrat Joe Manchin for his senate seat.  Blankenship would have been turned by the media into a replay of the Roy Moore fiasco in Alabama last year, so the Republicans did well to give him just 20% of the overall vote.  Good riddance.

Tired of all this #Winning yet? Part III – Democrats and their agents in the fake news media all hate President Donald Trump with a passion, but Israelis love him.  The City of Jerusalem just chose to name a public square in the President’s honor for keeping his campaign promise to move the U.S. embassy to that city from its current location in Tel Aviv.  Keeping your promises might not win you a totally un-deserved Nobel Peace Prize like the one Barack Obama received in 2009, but it will win you real gratitude from real people.

That un-American Obama “legacy” just keeps disappearing. – Speaking of Donald Trump keeping his promises, the President announced on Tuesday that he is ending U.S. participation in the Iran deal to which Barack Obama unilaterally chose to commit this country.  In response, the Iranian government responded very predictably, issuing war threats, burning an American flag on the floor if its fake parliament, and staging protests in which the oppressed protesters shouted…wait for it…you know what’s coming, don’t you?…”DEATH TO AMERICA!!!!”

Seriously, can’t the Mullahs teach these people any new chants?  This one has become as tiresome as another Pirates of the Caribbean sequel.  Do something else, already.

So, one more nail in the coffin of Barack Obama’s incredible shrinking legacy, which as of today is pretty much limited to a few random straggling Obamacare provisions, a handful of regulations that Trump hasn’t gotten around to rescinding yet, and of course all the illegal activity committed by the Obama Justice Department, the FBI and high Obama officials against the Trump Campaign in their tireless efforts to rig the 2016 election in favor of the Pantsuit Princess.

Otherwise, that legacy is as gone as Eric Schneiderman’s reputation, as gone as Jake Tapper’s credibility, as gone as Megyn Kelly’s ratings, as gone as Kathy Griffin’s career, and what a wonderful thing that is for the entire country.  All because we elected a President who has worked hard to keep the promises he made during his election campaign.  This really isn’t complicated, America.  Let’s keep doing it.

Throughout the day on Tuesday, ex-Obama officials took to their twitter accounts to defend the Iran deal, to no avail.  Most prominent among those was the execrable Ben Rhodes, who became famous for going around giving interviews after the deal was implemented in which he bragged about how easy it was to lie to the fake news media about the deal and convince all the young, naive reporters that it was actually a great deal for America.  Given that, it’s really amazing CNN hasn’t given Rhodes a gigantic contract to become an on-air contributor.

But my favorite came from John Brennan, the former CIA director and guy who has a history of voting for communists:

Within minutes after Brennan issued that tweet, North Korea confirmed that it will be releasing three U.S. prisoners while Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is visiting that country this week.

All of which just proves once again that one of the very best things about the disappearing legacy of Barack Obama is that we no longer have a simpleton like John O. Brennan running the CIA.

Just another day in the Obama legacy is almost gone America.

That is all.

Trump Predicted Schneiderman’s Demise – is There Just no End to all This #Winning?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this #Winning yet? – The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) announced on Monday that April was the best month for the federal budget in the nation’s history.  CBO officials said the government ran a surplus of $218 billion for the month, which of course is the month in which personal federal income tax returns are due.  The government’s intake of $518 billion for the month was $40 billion more than CBO’s analysts had anticipated, which is no surprise given that these are the same analysts who missed the 10-year cost of Obamacare by about half a trillion dollars.  The analysts attribute the higher tax income to – guess what? – stronger than anticipated economic growth during Donald Trump’s first year in office.

#Winning!

Oh, you poor thing. – Failed comedian Kathy Griffin, in yet another desperate plea for attention, told her Twitter followers on Monday that she’s just found out she’s been placed “on a brand new ‘Kill List.’ ”  It is not clear exactly who Miz Griffin thinks would bother taking the time and energy to try to kill someone so insignificant.  But, after predictably taking a shot at President Trump and his “game criminals” and another at…wait for it…Ryan Secrest, Griffin pointed her crooked, blood-soaked index finger at an unlikely source:

“…someone at “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” a “show I have done many times for free, ” has “a ‘problem with me’” and they’re “spreading the word around.”

Man, you just can’t cure crazy.

Yeah, that’s probably not going to help. – California Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein and 11 other Democrat senators sent a letter to the White House on Monday urging President Trump to keep the United States in the terrible, awful, no good very bad deal with Iran.  Notably, not a single one of the Democrat hypocrite signatories to this letter voted to allow the U.S. Senate to vote on the deal – every one of them participated in the filibuster to prevent the Senate from exercising its constitutional oversight on international agreements like this.  Given that, I’m guessing the President won’t be factoring this letter into his decision-making on the matter.

You might want to consider one of those countries that doesn’t have an extradition treaty with the United States. – The Pantsuit Princess, trying to hide what is obviously a back brace beneath her pantsuit jacket, told an audience that she considered fleeing the country after she lost the election in 2016 to Donald Trump.  Claiming she had “gotten some offers” to move to New Zealand in the weeks following Election Day, the Coughing Crook told her audience that “I must say I really did appreciate the offers. Gave them some thought,” Clinton joked. “But I’m going to stay put because we have work to do in my country as well.”  Why yes, yes we do.  Good of you to notice.

Mr. Schneiderman, your #MeToo Moment has arrived. – New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who has led the “resistance” effort among Democrat state attorneys general to challenge pretty much ever major action taken by the Trump Administration in court, got his #MeToo comeuppance on Monday when The New Yorker filed a report in which four women claim he is a serial woman abuser of the worst kind.  The women variously accuse the pompous bully with slapping them, choking them, punching them, and a broad variety of verbal and sexual abuse.

As always happens when public figures become embroiled in a major scandal, people began scouring Schneiderman’s social media accounts for unfortunate postings.  The tweet below, issued just a few weeks ago, is a prime example of Schneiderman’s rank hypocrisy:

For his part, Schneiderman first posted a denial, ironically using his Twitter account for the purpose:

Uh, ok.  Guess he was also doing a little “role-playing” when he was a featured speaker at the “Women’s March” that took place shortly after Trump’s inauguration in January 2017.  Hashtag, irony.

Shortly after that lame tweet, as it became obvious the whole “role-playing” dodge wasn’t going to fly, Schneiderman announced his blessed resignation.  Not that that will change anything in New York – the state’s Democrat machine will just plug some other abusive jerk into the job and keep Schneiderman’s efforts to undermine American democracy going.  Because that’s what the purpose of today’s Democrat Party has become.

But here’s the best part of all of this.  Those enterprising social media scourers also came up with this little gem from Donald Trump’s Twitter feed, circa 2013:

It took five years to come about, but once again, Donald Trump just keeps on #Winning.  Somewhere, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is cowering in a corner, praying Trump doesn’t issued any tweets targeting him.  Hilarious.

Just another day in Donald Trump just keeps on #Winning America.

That is all.

The Nunes “Threat” on Sessions: Not What it Seems to be?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The NRA held its annual convention in Dallas over the weekend and President Trump was a featured speaker.  But that wasn’t the big news.  The big news came when failed actress and failing anti-gun activist Alyssa Milano showed up to stage a protest in a park across the street from the convention center, complete with a small army of body guards who were – you guessed it – clearly carrying firearms.  Seriously, if liberals didn’t exist, you could not make them up.

Two headlines on the Drudge Report this morning caught my eye:

  • “With no letup in home prices, California exodus surges;” and
  • “California to require solar panels on new homes.”

Cause, meet effect.

“Here’s our new poll showing President Trump’s popularity rising dramatically.  We apologize for the findings of our new poll and will try to do better faking our data in the future.” –  The new Reuters/Ipsos poll is out, and it shows a dramatic rise in the public’s job approval for the President, to 48 percent.  Hilariously, the leftwing lunatics who conduct this poll included the following disclaimer along with the poll results:

“This week’s Reuters/Ipsos Core Political release presents something of an outlier of our trend. Every series of polls has the occasional outlier and in our opinion this is one. So, while we are reporting the findings in the interest of transparency, we will not be announcing the start of a new trend until we have more data to validate this pattern.”

So, if you were entertaining the thought that the people who run the Reuters/Ipsos poll did so in a sincere search for accurate findings, you can now put that thought out of your mind.  No need to thank me for this public service announcement.

You have a point, but why have you waited until now? – House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes told an interviewer on Fox News yesterday that he is planning to move to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions in contempt of congress this week.  The issue at hand is the Justice Department’s and FBI’s ongoing refusal to comply with his committee’s information requests in a timely manner.

It’s a valid point, and House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, who is one of the candidates to succeed Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House, expressed his agreement in a later interview on the same network.  My only question, though, is why has Nunes waited until now to threaten such action?  It’s not as if this stonewalling on the part of DOJ and the FBI is something new – it’s been going on since last summer.

One of the big problems Nunes and the rest of the Republicans in congress have in such situations is that they are viewed by those in the executive branch as paper tigers, people who make a lot of noise for the television cameras but who, when push comes to shove, can always be counted upon to back off at the first sign of negative media coverage of their actions.

Obama Attorney General Eric Holder no doubt laughed his butt off when he saw Nunes’ threat.  After all, Holder was held in contempt of congress way back during Obama’s first term in office, and what difference did that ultimately make to anything?  None, because the Republicans running congress then were not willing to take the next step and send the Capital police over to DOJ and take Holder into custody.  So Holder was able to just continue on his merry way.

But here’s the thing about the Nunes threat on Sessions:  It may not be what it appears to be.  Think about it for a minute:  First of all, why target Sessions and not the person who is the real problem, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein?  Sessions is recused from the whole Russia Collusion fantasy play – it’s Rosenstein who has been leading DOJ’s obstruction efforts with the various congressional investigations.

Second, again, why now?  Why take this action just when we are reportedly about to finally see the report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz made public?  I fully understand Nunes’ frustration, if that’s what it really is, but making this particular threat at this particular time against this particular target doesn’t really seem to make much strategic sense in the context of all these other events swirling around.

Here’s a thought:  Maybe Nunes is taking this action in order to help cement Sessions’ – and by extension, Horowitz’s – independence in the public’s mind in the weeks leading up to the release of the Horowitz report.  Nunes, after all, has been widely (and unfairly) portrayed as a shill for the Trump White House, so what better way to emphasize Sessions’ independence from all of that by going after him personally with a contempt of congress citation?

Why, I wouldn’t be surprised if we also see a nasty Trump tweet, or two, or three, targeting Mr. Sessions in the coming days.  Think about it – things are not always as they seem.

Just another day in you couldn’t make this stuff up if you wanted to America.

That is all.

McCain’s Pettiness, Kerry’s Mendacity and Mueller’s Pettifoggery

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Bitter, petty and mean until his dying breath. – John McCain is settling old grudges in his final days, telling friends (who then leaked it all to the New York Times) that a) he wants Mike Pence to come to his funeral, but not President Trump, b) he wants Barack Obama to deliver a eulogy at his funeral, and c) he regrets choosing Sarah Palin to be his running mate in 2008.  Anyone surprised by any of this hasn’t been paying much attention to John McCain’s behavior over the last four decades.

Bitter, mendacious, and disloyal to the bitter end. – Meanwhile, John Kerry, 2004’s failed candidate for President and the failed Secretary of State who helped Barack Obama sell out America and Israel in the horrible executive agreement with Iran,  was revealed to have spent the past week in what loving liberals in the fake news media call “shadow diplomacy” and what any thinking person calls violations of the Logan Act.  Kerry has been running all over the place, meeting with officials from Iran and other countries in a desperate effort to salvage his pathetic, un-American legacy.

The Logan Act, of course, is an antiquated law that prevents private U.S. citizens from interfering with the foreign policy of the sitting president and his administration.  The law dates to the 18th century, and has never been enforced – if it had been, then people like Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Jesse Jackson would all be serving time in Leavenworth right now.

So what’s the point here?  Well, if you remember the 10 days during which Obama minion Sally Yates served as acting Attorney General, she actually wanted to prosecute a genuine American hero, General Mike Flynn, for Logan Act violations because he was making introductory phone calls to leaders of other countries during the presidential transition, something every presidential transition team has done since the invention of the freaking telephone.  Every liberal talking head on CNN and MSNBC cheered Yates’s effort.

Trust me, you’re not going to see Sally Yates or any other liberal talking head advocating the charging of John Kerry with violations of the Logan Act for his latest acts of mendacity against our country.  Because liberal outrage is purely transactional.

Are we sure Robert Mueller is even qualified for his job? – Our jack-booted Special Counsel and his band of Clinton/Obama thugs suffered a second consecutive very bad day in court on Saturday, as yet another federal judge ruled against them, this time in a request for a trial delay.

Remember back on a Friday in February, when the very oily Rod Rosenstein held a hasty press conference to breathlessly announce that Mueller was issuing hilariously bogus indictments of 13 Russian defendants for conducting “social media warfare” on the U.S. during the 2016 campaign?  Remember how we speculated at the time that this was all done purely for show, an effort to influence public opinion, but safe in the belief that they’d never have to try to prove their goofy case in court because none of these defendants would ever show up for trial?

Yeah, that didn’t exactly work out for Rosenstein and Mueller.  See, one of the Russian defendants, a company called Concord Management, decided to show up and defend itself, pleading not guilty to all charges.  Hey, that’s not how this was all supposed to work, was it?

Suddenly, Mueller and his thugs find themselves in the uncomfortable position of having to demonstrate how 13 defendants somehow tilted a national election in a nation of 315 million people in favor of Donald Trump essentially by creating a bunch of fake accounts to send out messages on Twitter and Facebook on a total expenditure of a few million dollars.  That’s going to be sort of tough to prove, especially given that the messaging sent out from those fake accounts was both anti-Clinton and anti-Trump.

So the Mueller/Rosenstein strategy here was to delay, and they filed a delay request with the judge in the case, Trump appointee Dabney Friedrich, citing questions about whether or not Concord had ever been properly served in the case, a novel claim coming as it does from the prosecution.  The lawyers for Concord opposed the delay, saying the question of proper service is irrelevant and they are ready to go, and their client has a right to a speedy trial under the Constitution.

The lawyers hilariously said that “the briefing sought by the Special Counsel’s motion is pettifoggery,” and said that Mueller and his team of thugs are not entitled to their own “special rules.”

Unlike any Obama appointee, Judge Friedrich has actually read the Constitution, and thus agreed with the defense. So, either we will soon get to see the spectacle of how Mueller’s evil minions try to prove such obviously fake charges,  Mueller will decide to dismiss the case against Concord, or he and his minions will try to get their delay by appealing up the chain of courts.

I’m betting on the latter, but it sure would be fun to see this sham go to trial.

Just another day in the conspiracy to take down President Trump is falling apart America.

That is all.

Friday Was a Terrible, Awful, Very Bad Day for the Deep State

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Bug-eyed California Congressman Adam Schiff is back and lying like never before. – The former deep state U.S. attorney who is also the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee has gone eerily quiet in the public space in recent weeks, but he penned an op-ed for the New York Times on Friday.  In that piece, he hilariously advises his fellow Democrats running for congress this year to not talk about impeaching the President of the United States should they gain a majority in the House of Representatives.  His reason?  Why, Democrats don’t want to give the public the crazy idea that they’re trying to “nullify an election.”  Which, of course, is exactly what ol’ Bugeyes has been trying to do in his role on the House Intel Committee for the last 16 months.  Breathtaking hypocrisy.

Speaking of breathtaking hypocrites, race-baiting CNN fake host Don Lemon told some other fake journalist who was interviewing him that Kanye West lacks critical thinking skills.  Lemon claimed that his own critical thinking skills – you know, the kind that have led him to determine that an alleged affair with a porn star is a bigger story than record-low unemployment and peace on the Korean peninsula – tell him that President Trump may not be a “racist,” but he is at least “racist-adjacent.”  By the same token, my own critical thinking skills have allowed me to determine that Don Lemon may not be a raging nitwit, but he is at least raging-nitwit-adjacent.

Several very interesting developments related to the whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy play on Friday, so we’ll go through them in order here:

National Security Agency Director Navy Admiral Mike Rogers offically retired, turning over his command to Army General Paul Nakasone.  Rogers, if you remember, has played a key role over the last 20 months in uncovering the rampant abuse of the FISA process at the DOJ and FBI, in their efforts to spy on the Trump Campaign, Trump transition team, and as it is now becoming apparent, the Trump administration.  Rogers is also the official who met with President-elect Trump shortly after the election, alerting him to the fact that his transition team’s offices in Trump Tower had been bugged, prompting the move of the team to another Trump property the next day.

Interestingly, Rogers’ retirement will allow him to testify in any trials of the bad actors at DOJ and the FBI that take place in the future, something he would have not been able to do had he remained in his job.  Possibly just a coincidence, but a potentially very useful one.

Speaking of bad actors at the DOJ and FBI, former FBI General Counsel and former DOJ lawyer Lisa Page officially “resigned” from the positions they’d been demoted to yesterday.  Both are subjects of investigation for possible criminal wrongdoing in all the various campaign-related shenanigans at the DOJ/FBI during 2016 and 2017.

Page, of course, is the texting buddy of FBI super agent Peter Strzok, with whom she reportedly shared more than 50,000 texts over several months in 2016/2017.  She also served as the legal counsel to the very sweaty ex-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, one of the main fixers in the Clinton email scandal, among other things.

Baker is under investigation for the apparently very common FBI practice of leaking classified information to the news media.  Naturally, upon the announcement of his “retirement”, Baker received this praising tweet from fired ex-FBI Director James Comey, himself a serial leaker of classified information:

Deep state snakes of a feather, peas in a pod and all of that.

The retirements of these two bad actors likely means that they have provided all the information they have provide to Inspector General Michael Horowitz, Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber and their investigative staff.  My belief is that the only reason they weren’t fired outright last winter was because they chose to become cooperating witnesses.  Like Strzok, they’ve rolled over and made deals in exchange for spilling the beans.  Now they get to go home and get their affairs in order while they await possible indictments and trials.  Just an educated guess, but it sure fits the facts as we know them.

Speaking of IG Michael Horowitz, his long-awaited final report of his investigation into all these bad actors appears to have been pushed off yet again, but this may ultimately be a good thing.  Horowitz sent a letter to House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy stating that he was pursuing “new leads” in his investigation of the FBI’s fake investigation into the Clinton email abuse, so Gowdy announced yesterday that he is postponing the date of the IG’s appearance before his committee, which had been planned for May 8.

It may be important to note that the previously-mentioned Andrew McCabe led the FBI’s fake investigation noted above for many months.  Could these “new leads” mean McCabe – who has been oddly silent for the past few weeks after initially lashing out publicly following his firing – has also decided to make a deal with the investigators?  It’s a logical bet.  We’ll see.

Finally (I know this is getting long, but bear with me), Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his merry band of Clinton/Obama hacks had a very, very bad day in federal court on Friday.  They had the misfortune of drawing Federal Judge T.S. Ellis III, a Reagan appointee who has actually read the U.S. Constitution and respects it, as the judge in their case against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.

When Mueller’s minions began to argue their case against Manafort, which involves allegations of bank fraud that took place many years before Donald Trump ever announced his intention to run for president, Judge Ellis cut in, saying:

“I don’t see what relation this indictment has with what the special counsel is authorized to investigate,” Ellis said, according to Politico’s Josh Gerstein. “What you really care about is what information Mr. Manafort could give you that would reflect on Mr. Trump or lead to his prosecution or impeachment.”

Ellis further questioned by what authority the Mueller team was even conducting such an investigation to charges wholely-unrelated to any “Russia Collusion,” and demanded that they present him with the authorizing documents from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that ostensibly establish their authority.  He gave the hacks two weeks to produce those documents.

This is crucial since Rosenstein himself has refused to produce those same documents to various congressional committees that have made repeated demands to see them.  Rosenstein obviously does not want anyone to know what those authorizing memos contain.

But now a federal judge wants to see them, and a federal judge, unlike congress, has the authority to hold the hacks and Rosenstein himself in contempt of court and toss them into the pokey if they don’t comply.

Oh, my, Mueller and Rosenstein obviously did not see this coming.  Friday, May 18 is going to be a very fun day indeed.

Stay tuned.

Just another day in the conspiracy to take down President Trump is falling apart America.

The Deep State has Won a Few Battles, but is Losing its War on Trump

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, let’s review the evolution of the Deep State Cabal’s strategy to rid the D.C. establishment of this troublesome interloper, Donald J. Trump:

  • It began as an effort to fix the 2016 general election – devising a tortured rationale to let the Pantsuit Princes off the hook on her email crimes; spending millions on a fake Trump dossier designed to damage her opponent’s reputation; feeding debate questions to the Coughing Crook in advance; paying an assortment of women to come out of the woodwork to accuse Trump of having affairs in the weeks leading up to Election Day, etc., etc.
  • Having failed in that effort, it morphed into an effort to create so many leaks by Obama holdovers and other deep states inserts into the Administration that it would make it impossible for Trump to govern.  Trump and his few loyalists responded by doubling down on their agenda.
  • Having failed in that effort, it morphed in the spring of 2017 into the Rosenstein/Comey conspiracy to dummy up false grounds for the appointment of a Special Counsel in the person of their best buddy, Robert Mueller.  Mueller’s initial goal was to find criminal wrongdoing by the President.  The problem there was that there is no such crime called “collusion,” and no president can be prosecuted for exercising his constitutional authority, meaning there is no case to be made for “obstruction of justice.”  Trump and his loyalists doubled down on their agenda again.
  • Having failed in that effort, but with congressional preference polling late in 2017 indicating the Democrats had a chance to win control of the House of Representatives in the midterm elections, Mueller’s goal morphed into an effort to build a plausible case for impeachment, and to leak as much damaging information has he could to a cooperating national news media in order to drive down Trump’s public approval numbers.  If he and his media agents could drive the President’s approval ratings down into the low-30s or even into the 20s, even Republicans would likely be willing to vote for impeachment.  Thus, we saw the efforts to claim Trump is mentally unstable, then the efforts to claim his health is bad, then the former playmates and porn stars crawling out of the woodwork to claim 10-12 year-old affairs, and on and on.  Once again, Trump and his loyalists doubled-down on the agenda.

But a funny thing happened to Mueller on his way to this latest goal:  his tactics became so blatantly abusive, and the media’s efforts to justify them so transparently and laughably phony, that the public has become repulsed by the tactics, not the target.  That reaction to the abusive charade, combined with a booming economy and a raft of foreign policy achievements thought to have been unimaginable in the previous administration, has resulted in the President’s public approval ratings climbing to their highest level in 14 months.  In fact, in the daily Rasmussen survey – the lone periodic poll that focuses on likely voters – Mr. Trump’s approval as of today sits at 51%.

So, yet again, the Cabal’s strategy, as implemented by the Special Counsel, the deep state thugs embedded within DOJ and the FBI, and supported by the national fake news media, has miserably failed.

Recently, though, we’ve seen the strategy shift yet again.  The newest strategy, which appears to have been implemented around mid-March, is to viciously assault and character assassinate anyone loyal to Trump in order to ultimately make it impossible for Trump to find people willing to work for him, and thus make it impossible for him to govern.  Call it Chaos Strategy #2.

It started with Scott Pruitt, the extremely effective EPA Administrator, who has been the subject of a withering assault by disloyal EPA employees, the radical environmental community, and the fake news media.  The media effort has been led by the degenerates at the New York Times, who have now filed more than 60 hit pieces targeting Pruitt in the last month.  At one point a few weeks ago, it appeared that the President was preparing to cave to this media pressure and fire Pruitt, but changed his mind at the last minute and stood firm.

That will ultimately prove to be a crucial decision point in all of this.  Had Trump caved on Pruitt, then the walls may well have eventually fallen in around him, because other senior people under assault – like Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and Chief of Staff John Kelly – might have lost confidence in the President having their backs and jumped ship.

This Chaos Strategy #2 is what the repulsive character assassination of Admiral Ronnie Jackson was about, it’s what the assault on new National Security Advisor John Bolton’s integrity was all about, it’s what the Senate Democrats’ demonization of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was all about, it’s what the jack-booted raid on the home, office and hotel room of Trump attorney Michael Cohen was about, and it’s even what the White House Correspondents Dinners attacks on Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Kellyanne Conway were about.

Because Trump stood firm on Pruitt, this Chaos Strategy #2 is rapidly failing as well.  Yeah, they claimed a scalp with Admiral Jackson’s withdrawal, but today his main accuser, Vice President Mike Pence’s personal physician, Dr. Jennifer Pena, was forced to resign.  And yes, Cohen remains under assault, but there’s a long way to go on that situation as well.

Meanwhile, Bolton is the new National Security Advisor, Pompeo is now firmly ensconced as Secretary of State, Zinke is still reorganizing the Interior Department and its priorities, and Pruitt is still repealing the anti-American legacy of Barack Obama’s EPA.

So the Chaos Strategy #2 is failing as miserably as all the preceding Deep State strategies failed.  Meanwhile, prospects for the much-touted Democrat “Blue Wave” election wins in November are rapidly fading, the President is on the verge of one of the most astounding foreign policy victories in American history related to Korea, and the main report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz will be dropped within days.  That’s when the fun will really begin.

The Deep State’s gonna need another new strategy, and fast.

That is all.

NBC News is a Gigantic Dumpster Fire, and the Deep State Cabal Loves it

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – The ADP estimate on private sector jobs additions for April came in at 204,000, beating estimates that it would tally 190,000.  The Trump economy just keeps humming along.

NBC News is just a gigantic dumpster fire these days, but then you already knew that.  In addition to all the sexual harassment allegations hovering around its icon Tom Brokaw, NBC’s fake news division suffered yet another huge embarrassment by reporting a story that was so, so, so fake that even Special Counsel Robert Mueller apparently insisted they go back and correct it.  That, friends, is seriously fake news.

Around noon, MSNBC – NBC’s aggressively-fake news affiliate – reported that Mueller’s office has been wire-tapping the phone calls of former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, whom the Special Counsel Gestapo had already subjected to jack-booted thug raids on his home, office and hotel room in early April.  NBC breathlessly reported all afternoon that the intercepted phone calls from Cohen included – gasp! – one to the White House.  The White House immediately questioned the story, given that any such wiretap would clearly be illegal unless the SC had obtained a warrant from a federal judge, and Rudy Giuliani even predicted on Fox News mid-afternoon that the story would turn out to be fake.

But NBC clung to its fake “reporting” for about four and a half hours until, at about 4:30, the weaselly Chuck Todd was forced to admit that, in fact, Cohen’s phones had not been tapped, which would mean  that the Mueller Gestapo had been able to actually listen in to his conversations.  The truth – as far as the Mueller team is capable of speaking the truth, anyway – is that Cohen’s phone activity has been monitored by what is known as a “pen register”, which simply allows the feds to note the phone numbers he is calling.  This massive intrusion into a U.S. citizen’s privacy apparently requires no warrant.

This incident, of course, is just one of dozens of such instances we have seen over the last 16 months, in which some national fake news outlet reports some explosive “BREAKING NEWS!!!!”  that, if true, would be damaging to President Trump or someone around him, is allowed to linger in the public space for hours, often days, and then is forced to be retracted by the reporting fake news entity.

Hey, remember all those similar incidents that took place during the 8 years of Barack Obama?  No?  Neither do I.  Because this pretty much never happened during the Obama years.

Here’s why:  The fake news establishment loved Barack Obama.  Many in the White House press corps literally worshiped him – remember how so many of them compared Obama to Jesus Christ upon his election? – they probably prayed to him on a daily basis.  Barack Obama was the master, and the fake news reporters were his loyal lap dogs.

Lap dogs don’t go around pissing in their master’s lap – if they do, their master is going to stop petting them and stroking them and cooing baby talk into their ears, which is what Obama did with the journalistic profession for 8 years, in the process killing it dead.

These same lap dogs turned into a pack of rabid pit bulls when Donald Trump won the 2016 election.  They wake up every morning frothing at the mouth, intent upon doing anything they can to help Robert Mueller and the deep state thugs – like Rod Rosenstein – who remain in the FBI and Justice Department work to bring down this duly elected President.  Any time some “anonymous source” “with knowledge of the special counsel’s investigation” tosses them some potentially damaging nugget of “information”, they rush it into print or on-air without editorial oversight or the slightest care about whether or not it is true.

Because to today’s fake news media, “truth” is a relative concept.  Something is only “true” if it is damaging to the President or those around him and thus fits the narrative the media/deep state is attempting to brainwash into the public mind.  Stories that are not damaging to the President – like North Korea agreeing to release its American prisoners at Mr. Trump’s insistence – don’t get covered.  Stories that are damaging – like allegations of a 12-year old affair by a porn star – get covered ad nauseum.

This is all part the media/deep state game plan.  In NBC’s way of thinking, the embarrassment of having to correct a story pales in comparison to the damage done to the President of the United States by leaving it lingering out there in the public consciousness for four and a half hours.  After all, most people who heard the initial story will never know about the correction, and thus will walk around misinformed – and mis-informing their friends and family members – for the foreseeable future.

This is the Big Lie in action.  Joseph Goebbels would have felt right at home in today’s U.S. news media.

Just another day in the Big Lie lives in America.

That is all.

Trump Supporters to Kanye: Welcome to the Party, Pal.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

If this surprises you, you haven’t been paying attention. – The New York Post is reporting that female staffers felt pressured, even forced to sign that letter of support for #MeToo target Tom Brokaw that NBC rolled out last week.  According to one:

“We felt forced to sign the letter supporting Brokaw. We had no choice, particularly the lower level staffers. The letter was being handed around the office and the unspoken threat was that if your name was not on it, there would be some repercussion down the road. Execs are watching to see who signed and who didn’t. This was all about coming out in force to protect NBC’s golden boy; the network’s reputation is tied to Brokaw . . . If more women come forward, that’s a big problem.”

Why yes, yet it is a big problem, and rumors abound that more women are going to come forward soon to accuse Brokaw of sexual harassment.  And by the way, coercing female employees to sign a letter of support for a man accused of sexual harassment is itself a textbook case of sexual harassment.  NBC, it seems, just can’t help itself.

Tired of all this Winning yet? Part I – Kanye West is finding out who his real friends are right now, and finding that he doesn’t have nearly as many as he probably thought he did.  Millions who have supported Donald Trump since 2016 are looking on and thinking, “Welcome to the party, pal.”

A new Reuters poll shows that, after just one week of a single African American celebrity breaking free of the Democrat/leftist/political correctness plantation, approval of President Donald Trump among black males had doubled, from 11 percent to 22 percent.  That may not seem like a particularly big number, but every Democrat politician knows that if 22 percent of black males suddenly started voting for Republicans, the Democrat Party could not survive as a viable entity anywhere outside of California and a few states in the northeast.

So, if you’ve been wondering why West has been so viciously attacked by all of his leftwing colleagues and lectured by black politicians like Mad Maxine Waters – who condescendingly scolded the artist for “speaking out of turn” and needing help in properly forming his thoughts – wonder no more.  The Democrat Party has had a 90+ percent, virtual monopoly on the black vote for over half a century now, and in that period of time, the black family has essentially disintegrated, black poverty levels have gone up, not down, and black unemployment skyrocketed, all as a direct result of Democrat policies.

Today, after just 16 months of the Trump Administration, black unemployment sits at its lowest level since the statistic began to be kept half a century ago.   West sees this reality, and is speaking out about it, and the Democrat response is highly predictable.  Democrats have always responded aggressively and viciously whenever they see one of their cherished voter blocs being threatened.

Now comes news that Christina Aguilera is collaborating with West on a new recording, so she’d probably do well to wear her own flack jacket for the foreseeable future, because the leftist bomb-throwers will be targeting her next.  So long as Kanye is making pro-Trump noises, anyone who chooses to do business with or otherwise associate with him will become a target for leftist Democrat character assassination.  That’s just how these people work.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II. – Reports began circulating Wednesday afternoon that the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea has, in advance of his meeting with President Trump in the coming weeks, agreed to release three American “detainees”, i.e., prisoners.  If true – and it appears to be – this is a breathtaking surrender of negotiating leverage, and should serve to diminish any remaining concerns about North Korea’s real intentions in its stated desire for the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

The deal President Trump wants to see here is the supervised dismantling and removal of North Korea’s nuclear testing and intercontinental missile testing facilities in exchange for lifting of many U.S. and U.N. sanctions and a joint stand-down of the military standoff that has existed at the border between North and South Korea for 64 long and painful years.  The presence of these prisoners is one of the few remaining points of leverage that Kim Jong Un had available to him.    Releasing them is a clear signal that the decks are being cleared in advance so that the meeting between Trump and Kim can become more of a signing ceremony than a step in a long negotiating process.

Naturally, not one of the major networks found this stunning concession on the part of Kim worthy of mention on their nightly newscasts.  What we are seeing taking place on the Korean peninsula over the last few months has been nothing short of amazing, and it’s a damn shame that our national fake news media is so consumed with hatred of Donald Trump that it is simply not capable of appreciating it or properly reporting on it.

Just another day in welcome to the party, pal America.

That is all.

The Deep State Plot to Fix the 2016 Election Keeps Unraveling

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

There’s an awful lot of embarrassment to cancel. – The D.C.- based publication The Hill announced that it will no longer participate in the White House Correspondents Dinner, saying that “In short, there’s no reason for us to participate in something that casts our profession in a poor light.”  Well, if that’s the goal, then The Hill should also cancel its’ Twitter feed, which casts the dead profession of journalism in a bad, fake light about 52 times every day.

He’s gonna need another letter from all those fake feminist colleagues of his, or maybe not. – Tom Brokaw was accused of sexual harrassment by a third woman on Monday, and this one is actually pretty absurd.  Someone named Mary Reinholz came out of the woodwork to claim that Brokaw kissed her following an interview in her home, which he conducted for NBC News…wait for it…50 years ago!  As in half a damn century.  As in 1968, before Richard Nixon beat Hubert Humphrey to win the presidency.  And for some reason, the cretins who run the New York Daily News felt the need to report this story.  Hell, even I’m going to be defending Tom Brokaw if this keeps up.  Perhaps the people at The Hill should quit reading the New York Daily News, too.

Yes, and 10 out of 10 people are consuming fake news.  So what’s your point? – The World Health Organization issued a new study in which it claims that 9 out of 10 people on earth are breathing polluted air.  And – guess what? – the problem is “far worse in poorer countries.”  No, you think?  What oh what would we do if we did not spend billions of dollars funding the WHO each year to give us compelling information such as this?

A fake dossier too fake even for Comey, McCabe and Strzok. – If you thought that the efforts by the Pantsuit Princess’s campaign, the DNC and its loyalists to smear Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign were limited to spending millions of dollars to fund the Fusion GPS Fake Trump Dossier, well, think again.  Real Clear Investigations reports that a second fake dossier, written by notorious Clinton toady Cody (toady Cody:  it rhymes) Shearer, was handed to the State Department by the even more sleazy Clinton hack Sidney Blumenthal in mid-2016.

Even better, this second fake dossier eventually came into the hands of the sleazebags who were running the FBI at the time, and it was so obviously fake that even those hacks who were trying to fix the election for the Fainting Felon tossed it in the can.  The Shearer dossier is so amateurishly done that it misspells Paul Manafort’s name as “Manniford.”  Good lord.

The big question at hand related to the Shearer dossier is whether it served as some of the basis for the Fusion GPS dossier – which we know formed the main foundation of the requests by the Obama minions at FBI and DOJ for the FISA warrant that allowed them to spy on the Trump campaign.  There is no question that Fussion GPS had the Shearer document in its possession, and both documents contain some of the same fake allegations against President Trump.  It was this question that led Devin Nunes and his House Intelligence Committee to expand its investigation on Russia collusion into the State Department.

One key part of all of this is that it puts an absolute lie to James Comey’s contention that he he did not know who was funding the Fusion GPS work (Comey in fact laughably told Bret Baier the other day that he still does not know this fact).  This is because Shearer identifies the DNC as the source of that funding in the first page of his dossier.  Given the timeline of when the Shearer dossier was provided to the FBI, Comey and everyone else there would have been aware of that fact at the time they filed for their first FISA warrant, and failed to reveal that to the judge in the case.

The RealClearInvestigations story is a great piece of work, and everyone should take the time to read it.  It’s long and complex, but it provides clarity on another piece of the mendacity that was taking place within the Obama FBI and DOJ during the 2016 election campaign.

Never forget this:  Had the Coughing Crook won the election, all of this would have been buried and everyone involved would have skated.  Jim Comey would still be your FBI director, Loretta Lynch would still be your attorney general, and the utterly corrupt John Brennan and James Clapper would still be running your national intelligence apparatus.

The more we learn about all of this, the more I view the outcome of the 2016 election as an act of divine intervention.

Just another day in the conspiracy keeps unraveling thread by thread America.

That is all.

Robert Mueller is Really Desperate to Get Fired

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Robert Mueller really, really, really wants to get fired. – As if we needed any more proof of that reality facing President Trump, Mueller provided more last night, having someone on his staff leak a document to the New York Times which the Times claims contains a list of the questions Mueller is just itching to pose to the President.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the questions “relate to possible obstruction of justice, demonstrating how an investigation into Russia’s election meddling grew to include an examination of the president’s conduct in office. Among them are queries on any discussions Trump had about his attempts to fire Mueller himself and what the president knew about possible pardon offers to Flynn.”

In other words, Mueller long ago gave up on the fantasy that there was any “collusion” between the Trump campaign and the Russians, and has been on a 10-month fishing expedition for some evidence that the President himself “obstructed justice”.  Apparently, Mueller considers even a discussion about firing him to be “obstruction of justice”, a prospect so Nazi-like in its concept that it should chill any thinking  American (yes, every one of you non-Democrats) to the bone.

On the other hand, Mueller’s focus on a “crime” that noted constitutional scholar and very liberal Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz has repeatedly said no sitting President can even commit in the firing or contemplated firing of any employee is very encouraging for Mr. Trump.   It conclusively proves that Mueller is holding a gigantic bag of nothing and is attempting to get Trump to fire him in order to provoke a debate in congress over impeachment.

For his part, the President is a little ticked about it all, as he issued the following tweet as I was compiling this morning’s Campaign Update:

Yes, it is quite disgraceful, but it’s also quite transparent in its motivation, and so this tweet should be the entirety of the presidential response to Mueller’s action.

We should also remember here that the President recently brought Rudy Giuliani into his legal team to negotiate an end to this sham investigation with Mueller.  It is likely that Mueller’s decision to leak this list to the media signals some dissatisfaction with the status of that negotiation, and is designed to pressure Giuliani on some point.  Another sign of desperation on Mueller’s part.

But back to the point above about impeachment.  Whenever some seemingly-significant event related to the Mueller sham investigation takes place, it’s always important to keep in mind that, ultimately, that investigation and the seditious conspiracy involving high officials from the DOJ, FBI and the Obama intelligence community leading up to it was always designed to accomplish one of two outcomes:

  • First, to create such a high degree of chaos within the administration during its early days that Trump would be pressured to resign – which is exactly why you saw the most recent season of the Showtime series Homeland end the way it did;
  • Failing in that first goal, the backup goal has always been to build up some sort of a case for impeachment, on the hopes that the Democrats will be able to win a majority in the House of Representatives in the midterm elections.

There is no doubt that the conspiracy to take down a duly-elected president did succeed in at least part of Goal #1:  It did create an amazing amount of chaos within the administration, and its willing participants in the fake news media did create a lot of external pressure on the President to resign.  The fatal flaw in this goal, however, was that the conspirators assumed Trump would react to all of this the same way prior presidents have reacted to the pressure of partisan special counsel investigations:  By panicking and pulling in his sails.

Instead, Trump reacted simply by ratcheting up the pressure from his own end, taking his case to the people, and achieving more notable public policy goals during his first year in office than any president in American history.  Probably 80% of the anti-American legacy of Barack Obama has been repealed, taxes have been massively cut, the economy is booming, and America is once again a true world power on the international stage.

This latest desperate act by Mueller comes at a time when the President’s personal conduct of foreign policy has resulted in the formal end to the 67 year-old Korean conflict, is moving strongly towards the de-nuclearization of the Korean peninsula, is gaining huge trade concessions from our international trading partners, and is about to either significantly reset the horrific, anti-American Obama deal with Iran that endangers the entire Middle East or end the U.S. participation in it.

So Robert Mueller desperately wants to get fired in a last-ditch attempt to create a case for impeachment.

That tweet was great, Mr. President.  Now, just go on about your business of winning the Nobel Peace Prize and let Rudy go about his business of ending the witch hunt.  Today’s a great day.

Just another day in the Mueller gun is out of bullets America.

That is all.

Michelle Wolf Reminds Us Why Donald Trump Won

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This is why Donald Trump won. – Here  are the highlights for the fake news media over the past week:

  • At the White House Correspondents Dinner, aka, Hollywood Gala for Ugly People, a fourth-rate comic emcees the event and hurls insults at the working mother of three young children who sacrificed her entire Saturday to be present to represent the President.  The press corps yucks it up at her expense, and only later tries to backtrack after the realization that, hey, maybe that wasn’t exactly an appropriate thing to do.
  • After years-old tweets are dug up which show that MSNBC fake host Joy Reid is a homophobic bigot, she makes up a ludicrous lie about having been “hacked” and files a false report with the FBI.  After the FBI investigates and demonstrates that Reid is lying, Reid issues a Clintonian non-apology apology, and everyone in the fake news media rallies to support her because, you know, she’s “a different person now.”
  • Tom Brokaw has his #MeToo moment, being accused by former colleague Linda Vester of gross sexual harassment, and all the same female fake journalists who have spent the last 20 years telling us that we simply must BELIEVE ALL WOMEN in situations such as this immediately rally not to the accuser’s side, but to defend Tom Brokaw, because he’s one of them, and presumably because Vester worked at Fox News after Brokaw’s years of harassment had led her to leave NBC.
  • Jake Tapper and CNN are revealed to have been active supporters, co-conspirators, in the plot to bring down a duly-elected President of the United States of America, and no “mainstream”, i.e., “fake” media outlet demands accountability.  Instead, they all march in lockstep with CNN and Tapper, completely burying the story.

Look, it’s one thing to be biased – the U.S. news media has always been biased in favor of socialist government policies and the Democrat party in general.  That’s just a fact of American life.  And it’s one thing to be snarky during the daily White House press briefings, as is often the case when reporters don’t feel like they’re getting the answers they would prefer to get.  There’s nothing wrong with aggressive questioning of those in power.

But there is something wrong with inviting White House employees to your annual gala, and then hiring some disgusting creep to rain down vicious lies and insults upon them as part of the “entertainment.”  There is something very wrong with having one of your on-air tele-prompter readers revealed to be a vicious bigot, then a bald-faced liar, and then having there be no consequences for such behavior because she has her “I hate Donald Trump” banter down pat.  And there is something really, really wrong when a news anchor and an entire fake news outlet is revealed to have not only actively coordinated with a conspiracy to commit a coup d’etat, but then awarded one of the conspirators a big contract to be an on-air “contributor” after he’d committed perjury about it all before a congressional committee.

There has been much shock and angst in the fake news media in recent days about a recent poll finding that 51% of Republican voters consider the media to be an enemy of the people, while only 37% think it plays its intended role of keeping politicians honest.  I’m frankly surprised that the 51% number wasn’t 20% higher, but then, the poll was taken prior to the last week of the media disgracing itself, so it may well be 20% higher today.

This sort of depravity and open hostility by the fake news media towards anyone with an R by their names is in fact one of the main reasons why Donald Trump won the presidency in 2016, and why he will most likely win re-election in 2020 should he choose to run.  The simple fact of the matter is that the media’s mask is off, and these fake, demented journalists alienate more and more ordinary Americans each and every day.  Those alienated Americans are likely to become future Trump voters.

You want to know why a growing majority of Republican voters believe the fake news media establishment is the enemy of the American people?  It’s because 98% of the demented human slugs who populate our fake media establishment act on a daily basis as enemies of the American people.  They are serial liars, they are shameless hypocrites, and they are the worst kind of vile and disgusting human beings.

All you need as proof of that reality is to know that as of this morning Jake Tapper and Joy Reid still have their jobs, James Clapper still has his lucrative CNN contract, and the Tom Brokaw #MeToo story has been buried.  If you need more proof than that, go out to YouTube and watch all the fake journalists yucking it up at the expense of Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and realize that not one of these demented hypocrites decided to walk out or do anything else in real time to correct the disgrace that was taking place at their annual dinner.

Enemies of the truth, enemies of common decency, enemies of democracy, enemies of the people.  Plain and simple.

Just another day in fake news media America.

That is all.

Thanks to Bret Baier, James Comey’s Defense Strategy is now a Matter of Public Record

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The depraved seditionists who make up the team of fake journalists at CNN spent all day Saturday whining about the fact that President Trump refused to attend last night’s White House Correspondents Dinner for the second straight year.  No longer able to attract any A-list talent, the WHCD was hosted by some D-list comic named Michelle Wolf, whose opening monologue proved beyond all doubt the President had made the right decision once again.

CNN laughably billed the dinner as a “celebration of the first amendment,” as if anyone at CNN actually gives a damn about the constitution anymore.  Ms. Wolf took this billing to mean that she was free to fill her routine with any profanity, insult or slander she saw fit to use, even to the point of personally attacking White House representatives Sarah Sanders and Kellyanne Conway, who made the mistake of choosing to attend the dinner.

The evening’s festivities only went downhill from there.  Gosh, hard to imagine why the President of the United States of America would choose not to legitimize such nonsense.  In reality, the dinner provided just one more reason to question why the White House continues to allow these people onto the grounds for daily press briefings.  It has been obvious they are a hostile force since the first day of this administration, and represent a security threat to the President and his advisors.

The President of the United States has a duty to keep the people informed of what his administration is doing on a regular basis.  But no president has any obligation to cater to the whims of a group of hostile degenerates, which is what the White House press corps has become.  Last night’s event was a disgrace, not just to the near-dead journalistic profession, but to the entire country.  It should not go unpunished.

Mr. Trump, meanwhile, traveled to Washington Township, Michigan to hold a rally that drew attention away from the attention-starved gaggle of fake journalists.  It was classic Trump, a wide-ranging hour and twenty minute stream of consciousness that touched on pretty much everything going on in Washington, DC today.  The White House Press Association should send him a thank you note for distracting the public’s attention away from the disgusting display its members put on at their annual Hollywood for Ugly People gala.

But back to CNN.  If they haven’t already done so, Jeff Zucker and some of the on-air talent at the fakest fake news outlet on the face of the earth had probably better start lawyering up, since it has now become quite obvious that they have not only tailored their reporting to support the conspiracy to take down this presidency, but some of them have been active participants in it.

Make no mistake about this:  What has gone on within the FBI and DOJ since mid-2016 was initially a concerted effort to rig a national election that then, after failing to do that, morphed into a full-blown attempt at a soft coup d’etat.  As we discussed in yesterday’s Campaign Update, CNN fake host Jake Tapper has been an active participant in the plot since January 2017, when Obama Director of National Intelligence James Clapper shared the contents of the fake Trump Dossier with him.  Since that time, Tapper has sat silently by without comment as Clapper has lied about the Dossier and who he shared it with time after time after time.  That makes Tapper a willing participant in a conspiracy to bring down a duly-elected president.

If Tapper was aware of this, it idiotic to believe that others at CNN weren’t also aware of the same thing.  As a network, CNN has not only continued to allow Clapper on its air, it actually awarded him a big contract in August 2017 to become a paid talent for the fake news channel.  By that time, it was already public knowledge that Clapper had lied to a congressional committee about all of this, but the fake news network hired him anyway.

As this conspiracy continues to unravel, there is no telling where all these various threads will lead.  But we can bet that some of them will lead deep within bowels of the management at CNN, which is about to make a bunch of lawyers a buttload of money.

Speaking of making lawyers a buttload of money, I went back and listened to James Comey’s interview with Bret Baier again yesterday.  It strikes me that in that interview, it is obvious that he was basically practicing the answers he plans to give on a witness stand in a court proceeding.

For a guy who just wrote a book about all of this, Comey’s memory has suddenly become very fuzzy.  His answers to Baier’s questions are filled with weasel-word qualifiers that good lawyers always tell their clients to use, phrases like “I don’t recall,” “not to my recollection,” “that’s not consistent with my memory,” and on and on.  Comey’s obvious defense strategy will be to blame Andrew McCabe, who was his deputy, and Bill Priestap, the FBI’s head of counterintelligence  – and the guy to whom FBI super-agent-in-his-own-mind Peter Strzok reported – for keeping him in the dark as they and their minions went about their anti-Trump machinations.

Taking that interview with Baier was a serious strategic error on Comey’s part.  Baier, with his tough questioning, forced the teen drama queen onto the record about all manner of things he should not have been talking about, leaving Comey now stuck with a narrative that’s already been aired in public.  Even with all the weasel words, it will very difficult for him to shift that story come trial time.

Those of you who still think Attorney General Jeff Sessions isn’t going to pursue any of this might want to take a close look at Comey’s behavior over the past week, because Comey obviously disagrees with you.  You might also want to think about the fact that, other than Clapper and Obama CIA Director John Brennan, the rest of the Obama high officials implicated thus far – like Ben Rhodes, Sally Yates and Samantha Power – have gone strangely silent in the public space over the last month or two.

It’s a strong bet that some lawyers are making a buttload of money off of them as well.

Just another day in the conspiracy to end the Trump presidency is falling apart America.

That is all.
