Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Hey, guess who’s back? – Anitfa, which is nothing more than the militant arm of the Democrat Party, had had its activities suspended in the run-up to the election, probably on orders from Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. Now that the election has come and gone, orders have gone out for this bunch of brain-dead cretins to resume their previous assaults around the country. Isn’t that great?
So, last night, a group of them assembled on the front yard of Fox News host Tucker Carlson and chanted threats at him and his family – which includes small children – for an hour or so. Such admirable people. Never forget that they are bought and paid for by the Democrat Party. We have to stop letting the politicians off the hook for this anti-American nonsense.
Speaking of leftist radicals assaulting innocent people… – CNN Democrat activist with a press pass Jim Acosta doesn’t have his press pass anymore. At least from the White House, which revoked the fake reporter’s press badge after he made a complete ass of himself at a Presidential press conference Wednesday morning, and assaulted a young female White House intern in the process.
The intern, who was just trying to do her job after President Trump instructed her to take the microphone from Acosta, received an Austin Powers-caliber karate chop from Acosta for her troubles. Were Acosta a reporter for a conservative news outlet, the #MeToo gang would have descended on him like a pack of hyenas, but because he works for CNN, there has been radio silence from that corner of the liberal universe.
CNN, meanwhile, spent much of the rest of its day lying to its audience with carefully-edited video that had Acosta’s assault removed out of it. Because, of course they did.
But it’s not just Acosta – there is a larger problem here. If you watched that press conference – where the President spent well over an hour fielding 68 mostly-hostile questions from 35 fake reporters – you saw a security problem. With only a few exceptions, you saw a group of at least 60 individuals who literally hate the man they were interviewing. These are people who are enemies of the White House – they are there doing nothing but attempting to damage this presidency. They are agents for the opposition, Democrat activists with press passes, nothing more.
I’ve argued for more than a year and a half now that the White House should end the thing called the “White House press corps”, and deny them access to the White House grounds for security reasons. It is only a matter of time before one of these preening, entitled peacocks goes completely off the hook and assaults Sarah Sanders or even the President.
Any president of either party has an obligation to keep the public informed of his actions and the actions of his Administration, and in today’s age of miraculous technology there are myriad means of getting that done. No president has the slightest obligation to allow a pack of agents for the opposition to have unfettered access to the White House grounds on a daily basis. That’s actually an act of insanity.
Suspending Acosta’s press badge is a good start, but that is all it is. Sadly, the action will probably be reversed today, and the insanity will continue until somebody really gets hurt.
Well, that didn’t take long. – Less than an hour after his meeting with the “press” had concluded, President Donald Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions. This is no surprise, although no one had expected it to happen before all the votes from the mid-terms had been counted. Now we will see if Mr. Trump can hire someone into the job who actually wants to do it. Sessions, sadly, obviously didn’t.
Sessions’ Chief of Staff, former U.S. Attorney Matthew Whitaker, will become acting Attorney General until a permanent replacement is nominated and confirmed by the Senate. Whitaker also now assumes oversight of Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his merry gang of Clinton/Obama hacks. This is interesting, since Whitaker has been publicly outspoken in his belief that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has been negligent in his duty to ensure Mueller remained focused on the supposed scope of his investigation, rather than going off on all sorts of tangents as Mueller has clearly done.
Democrats and their agents in the fake news media naturally reacted with joint talking points that would make ordinary citizens believe that, once appointed, a Special Counsel has a lifetime appointment with unlimited scope and powers, because of course they did. Lying is what these people do for a living, after all. New York Congressman Jerrold Nadler, who will become the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee in the new congress come January, threatened to impeach the President should he make a move to fire Mueller, as did Chuck Schumer and other Democrats.
The President is not going to fire Robert Mueller. That’s not going to happen. Mueller has in fact clearly been in the process of winding his operation down over the past few months, and will most likely be issuing a final report sometime in the coming weeks.
On the other hand, the President probably is going to fire Rosenstein, who is clearly a deep state functionary, and we should expect that to happen quite soon, maybe before the week is out. We should also expect the President to declassify a whole raft of key documents once that firing has been carried out. We should then expect the declassification of those documents to lead to a major, final house-cleaning at the Department of Justice, where more than 25 deep state players have already been removed over the past year.
After all of that has happened, prosecutions will finally begin. That is how this is all probably going to go, and no set of joint talking points recited by Democrats and their fake news media agents is going to stop it.
