Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
That Bob Woodward’s a saint! Wait, he said what about John Brennan? Oh, uh, that Bob Woodward’s a skunk! – Look for the Obama sycophant tune about Bob Woodward and his new book start to change today, as it was revealed overnight that his book contains a damaging allegation about Obama’s rancid CIA Director John Brennan.
Woodward’s book alleges that Brennan endorsed the fake Trump Dossier paid for by the Clinton Campaign and DNC late in 2016, something Brennan has denied doing. Woodward’s allegation about Brennan is of course based on nothing but the claims of an anonymous source, a source who may or may not actually even exist.
A spokesman for Mr. Brennan told the Washington Times that Brennan “never approved of the dossier. In fact, the source said, he worked to make sure it wasn’t included in the intelligence community assessment of Russian election interference.” The source went on to say that Brennan did not approve of the dossier because “it wasn’t corroborated intel,” a rare instance in which we can confirm our former CIA Director is actually telling the truth, given that nothing in the fake Dossier has been corroborated to this very day.
Of course, none of that prevented Brennan from sharing the Dossier with his buddy Jim Comey and others at the Obama FBI. Nor did it prompt Brennan to work to ensure the contents of the Dossier were not used by the anti-Trump cabal within the DOJ and FBI to form the basis for no fewer than four FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign and Administration, an effort of which he was certainly well aware.
At any rate, thanks to this excellent reporting by the Washington Times – which no one at the New York Times or Washington Post could be bothered to perform – Democrats are finding out what it’s like to be on Bob Woodward’s yarn-spinning receiving end this morning. Woodward should probably wear his big boy pants today, because the blowback is going to be vicious.
How many layers of Anonymous does Woodward get before the referee calls him offsides? – I got a kick last night when the apparent 12 year-old children who control The Hill’s twitter feed (@TheHill) sent out the following little ditty:
— The Hill (@thehill) September 11, 2018
So, to be clear, that would be the anonymous “key” Trump official confirming the gossip coming from other anonymous “key” Trump officials who claim to have heard still other “key” Trump officials say a bunch of stuff that those “key” Trump officials all deny having ever said? Well….yeah.
How does Woodward saying that qualify as “news” to any legitimate news organization, which The Hill actually used to be? In all seriousness, our fake journalistic community appears to have lost all touch with what their profession is supposed to be about at this point. It’s terribly sad to watch, and remains a clear and present danger to the survival of our Republic.
Everything in our fake news media is political, even the weather and tennis shoes. – We have arrived at a point at which the journalists who are supposed to serve as our nation’s “watchdogs” over those in power now merit watching more than those in power do. There is not a single mainstream media outlet today that can be trusted to report straight news. Every report, regardless of its subject matter, is now tinged with the political viewpoints of the reporters and editors and producers and corporate flunkies.
We can’t even trust media outlets to report the weather straight anymore, as the run-up to the landfall of Hurricane Florence clearly demonstrates. I awoke this morning to an ABC radio news report in which the anchor guy used his report on Florence to bash President Trump for the Administration’s handling of last year’s multiple hurricane impacts on Puerto Rico. The report was raft with loaded phrases like “the President claims”, “many (unnamed) experts have criticized his handling,” and “thousands of Puerto Ricans were without” power, water, you name it, as if the President himself directed the hurricanes’ advance, or was personally responsible for the 50 years of graft, corruption and infrastructure neglect by the island terroritory’s Democrat-dominated government.
Even before Florence does any damage at all, our fake news media is working hard to set this up as “Trump’s Katrina,” make no mistake about it. All the fake reporters and fake editors and fake producers are frustrated as hell that they couldn’t successfully create that narrative related to any of the four major hurricane events in 2017, so you can count on them to work overtime on getting it done with Florence.
But assessing blame before the fact is just one of the media tactics we’re already seeing. The efforts to blame every hurricane that takes place on “global warming” or “climate change” have become so ubiquitous now that we hardly even notice them.
If you want to understand how specious that argument is, take a look a the data in this tweet from noted climate expert Roger Pielke, Jr.:

This is just factual, official government data, folks, not some CNN talking head’s opinion. As you can see, major hurricane events along the East Coast and Florida were roughly 3 times more frequent during the half-century from 1915 through 1965 than they have been since 1966. This is 180 degrees contrary to the climate scammer argument that rising levels of carbon dioxide cause more frequent and more intense hurricane events.
Florida looks like a damn pin cushion during that earlier time frame. Given that Chevrolet didn’t start making Suburbans until 1936 and didn’t begin selling them in any great quantities until the 1980s, your SUVs didn’t do that.
Hurricanes happen. Sometimes the U.S. gets hit frequently, and sometimes – like the decade prior to 2017 – the U.S. doesn’t get hit at all for long periods of time. That SUV you’re using to drive your kids to and from school and their extra-curricular activities doesn’t have anything to do with it.
Just another day in all fake news all the time about everything America.
That is all.
