Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Next comes the Feats of Strength competition. – The Season of Festivus apparently kicked off on Saturday (Google it if you never watched “Seinfeld”), as the annual Airing of Grievances took place at the funeral for John McCain. Naturally, given that this was a gathering of pretty much every major figure in the DC Swamp today, all the grievances were targeted at the one man who wasn’t in attendance, President Donald Trump, who was playing golf as the Grievances were being aired.
Thus far we’ve had no word on when the competing Festivus For The Restofus will take place, or where.
Speaking of funeral-related shenanigans, Bishop Charles Ellis III, who officiated over the 9-hour service for the late, great Aretha Franklin, sort of apologized late Saturday for creating a controversy by apparently groping the young pop singer Ariana Grande up at the dias, right in front of the whole world. The groping was of course captured on video from about a dozen different angles, was obviously intentional, went on for quite awhile and caused Ms. Grande visible distress and discomfort.
The Bishop says it was all unintentional, because of course he does:
“It would never be my intention to touch any woman’s breast. … I don’t know, I guess I put my arm around her,” Ellis said in comments to US media confirmed to AFP on Saturday.
“Maybe I crossed the border, maybe I was too friendly or familiar, but again, I apologize.”
Yeah, sure, uh-huh.
The Bishop made things even worse for himself by telling an incredibly stupid joke as he introduced Ms. Grande, saying “When I saw Ariana Grande on the program, I thought that was a new something at Taco Bell.” The 25 year-old singer is of Italian descent.
The fake news just keeps on getting faker at the desperate New York Times. – My goodness, it has finally come to this. The fake journalists at the New York Times who have coordinated with all the bad actors in the FBI and DOJ in their efforts to first prevent Donald Trump to win the presidency and then to keep building a case for his impeachment, have devised yet another new narrative for the whole fiasco. It is an obvious, transparent effort to get their deep state cohorts off the hook as the walls of eventual justice continue to close in around them.
In this latest narrative, everything the FBI and DOJ cabal did related to the Trump Campaign throughout 2016 turns out now to have been an effort to “turn” Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, an effort the fakest fake newspaper in America claims was initially directed at obtaining “information on Russian organized crime and, later, on possible Russian aid to President Trump’s 2016 campaign.” In this newest narrative – about the 5th or 6th new narrative the fake media establishment has spun since the truth began coming to light about 18 months ago – Deripaska, a well-known part of the Russian criminal establishment – was able to easily obtain visas necessary to conduct his business in the U.S. from the Obama DOJ because, why, they wanted to turn him. And they coordinated efforts with Deripaska throughout the fall of 2016 and treated the fake Trump Dossier which was largely compiled with Deripaska’s unsupported accusations as unbridled fact before the FISA court because, golly, they wanted to turn him.
This newest in a long line of media-invented narratives is necessary because all the previous false narratives have crashed up on the shoals of harsh reality. This one will as well, because it is even more absurd than the incredibly specious tale of an off-hand remark by the pathetic campaign hanger-on George Papadopoulous to some guy in Australia having generated a formal FBI counter-intelligence investigation that lasted for months.
C’mon, man. Be serious.
But look, these fake journalists can’t be serious, because many of them are actually in personal jeopardy in all of this. They weren’t just “reporting” on all the Cabal’s dirty dealings, they were active participants in them. The reality is if the skunks and snakes within the government ever begin to be brought to justice, that process will inevitably extend to the skunks and snakes at the New York Times and many other fake news media outlets.
So they have to keep spinning, tale after tale, diversion after diversion, narrative after narrative, all in a desperate effort to keep the whole dirty episode from completely unraveling. Their problem, however, is that the facts of the dirty dealings are already mostly on the public record and just waiting for someone, anyone in a position of authority at DOJ to perform a real investigation into them.
It is becoming increasingly apparent that the current Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, has no intention of ever allowing anyone to engage in such an investigation on his watch, but the President has made it clear that, absent some real action, Sessions’ watch is likely to end shortly after Election Day, barely two months from now. That isn’t much time for the fake news media to get some – any – viable narrative in place.
But this narrative will fail just like all of its predecessors have failed for one overriding reason: It is fake news, and facts are stubborn things.
Just another day in the fake news just keeps getting faker America.
That is all.
