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.
