Are Experts Who Are Always Wrong Really “Experts” At All?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The rules, they are a-changin’. – Hey, remember when all your Democrat friends were telling you that the appropriation of other cultures by white people was all bad and stuff, or something? Well, apparently that’s all gone by the wayside now that Fauxcahontas, one of the most pasty-white people you have ever seen in your life, is running for president.

That’s right:  Little Mouth Always Running, on her campaign’s website, is now telling us that it is somehow “racist” to criticize her for pretending to be an American Indian in order to get hired at Harvard several decades ago, and for keeping that pretense up as a means of boosting her political career.

So, hey, new rules:  Cultural appropriation is peachy-keen if you’re a leftist lunatic who is borrowing someone else’s culture in order to make money or obtain votes under false pretenses.

*sigh*

Tired of all this #Winning yet? – Why are all the “experts” always so damn shocked by the jobs reports?  So, the U.S. economy added 312,000 new jobs in December, shocking all the eminent high muckety-muck economists, who predicted from their high towers that the number would be more like 180,000.

Of course, it wasn’t just these mysterious “expert” economists who were flummoxed by the wonderful report – the fake news media that has been doing its best to tank the U.S. economy since January 20, 2017 was also in a state of shock about it all.  Here’s a sampling of the headlines this morning:

Associated Press:  US employers went on a surprising[!] hiring spree in December

NPR: U.S. Adds Stronger-Than-Expected[!] 312,000 Jobs

Daily Mail: US economy adds 312,000 jobs in December, nearly DOUBLE[!] the number forecast by economists

CNN: U.S. Nonfarm Payrolls Rise 312,000 in December Vs. 184,000 Expected [Man, you know CNN detested having to report that]

And on and on it went. The hilarious thing about this is that all these same “experts” were also shocked at every jobs report during the Obama years, but they were invariably shocked because the actual numbers were so low when compared to their pie-in-the-sky expectations.

The moral of this story is this:  Just as it is best to never listen to what the Inside-the-Beltway “experts” on your TV screen have to say about politics, it is best to never believe economists our fake news media identifies as “experts” when it comes to the economy.

Speaking of “experts”… – Democrat Senator Ben Cardin came out of a 2-hour meeting on border security at the White House and told Wolf Blitzer on CNN that “experts” are telling the Democrats that walls don’t work.

That, of course, is a damnable lie. There are no “experts” telling the Democrats any such thing, since any true “expert” on the matter has to admit that walls are indeed extremely effective at keeping out intruders.  This has been proven time after time after time in countries all over the world, and even in San Diego, California, where the wall constructed in the 1990s has reduced the illegal immigrant problem by 95%.

Anyone telling the Democrats that walls don’t work is a hack, a liar and most likely a politically-motivated leftist.  Which of course is the only kind of “expert” any of today’s Democrats are willing to listen to. Naturally, Mr. Blitzer had neither the motivation nor the presence of mind to ask Cardin to identify any of these “experts” by name.  Because, CNN.

Let’s close this out with some Twitter fun from Friday:

She was dipping into the family firewater…

I have to watch some paint dry…

Reuters needs to consult with a new Twitter “expert”…

Time for the Democrats to haul out some more fake “experts”…

It’s Austin.  It had to either be Avocados or flour tortillas…

But…but…where’s Fauxcahontas?…

Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw perfectly sums up the AOC Dance Video…

And finally, our fake news media will do anything to protect their beloved Democrats (pardon the obscenity, but it’s apparently going to become just a part of our normal political discourse now)…

*sigh*

Soledad O’Brien Personifies the Media’s All-Consuming Hubris

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Soledad O’Brien: News Faker of the Week! – Soledad O’Brien, who learned the fake news trade at MSNBC and CNN and now does some sort of syndicated talk show, got on her Twitter feed yesterday to join D-list actress Alyssa Milano in bashing President Donald Trump for not visiting U.S. troops overseas over the holidays.

When former Fox News host Brit Hume pointed out that, by the time Milano had tweeted out her insult, the President and First Lady Melania Trump were already in Iraq preparing to visit the troops there, the hubris-addled O’Brien replied by saying, “Shaming him seems to work.”

Think of how demented a person must be to believe that, because she and her fake media pals started criticizing him over the weekend for presumably not visiting troops, the President of the United States of America dropped everything he was doing, jumped on Air Force One and took off for Iraq. It is the definition of unbridled hubris.

As Dan Bongino pointed out yesterday evening, Presidential trips overseas are logistical nightmares.  They cannot be done on the spur of the moment, simply because a president gets upset about bad news reports and wants to make it stop. These things must be planned weeks in advance, with every moment of the president’s time accounted for, allowing time for the Secret Service to set up appropriate security at every stop along the way.

Despite the petulantly-negative media coverage – because of course it was negative – the President and First Lady received overwhelmingly enthusiastic receptions from troops in Iraq and later in Germany. Here are some photos:

One more thing: Melania Trump became the first First Lady to visit troops overseas since Laura Bush made the trip in 2005. You won’t see Soledad or Alyssa making any positive tweets about that little fact, because hey, Michelle might be watching.

After all, you never saw any of them holding “Hopey Changey” hats when Obama visited. – CNN’s big outrage story related to the POTUS/First Lady’s visit to Iraq was about all the troops who showed up with red MAGA caps. CNN’s crack legal team has decided that the President’s signing of several of them puts the soldiers in violation of military regulations, because of course CNN is going to say that.

Oh, and the media also criticized Melania for wearing Timberland boots during the trip. I kid you not.

*sigh*

That time when Morning Joe pretended to channel Jesus Christ:

Ocasio-Cortez Update:

For the record, Mary, Joseph and their baby were not “refugees” in any sense of that word. They in fact traveled to Bethlehem in order to register for the Roman census. But in the fantasy world that Ms. Cortez occupies, there is no such thing as “truth.” Which, come to think of it, just makes her your common, every day socialist. Nothing special at all.

When is 42% reported as 5.1%? When the U.S. media is reporting it! – The Wall Street Journal published a piece celebrating strong U.S. consumer spending around this Christmas season.  Here’s a quote:

Shoppers delivered the strongest holiday sales increase for U.S. retailers in six years, according to early data.  Total U.S. retail sales, excluding automobiles, rose 5.1% between Nov. 1 and Dec. 24 from a year earlier, according to Mastercard SpendingPulse, which tracks both online and in-store spending with all forms of payment. Overall, U.S. consumers spent over $850 billion this holiday season, according to Mastercard.

The Wall Street Journal owes its readers an explanation.

That is all.

The Week in Review: The Voting Will Continue Until The Democrats Have Their Wave

The Campaign Update Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

There was an election on Tuesday, and about 95% of the country called it all good then.  All the votes that had been legally cast in this broad mass of the nation were legally counted by midnight, winners were declared and claimed their victories, losers conceded their losses, and all was right with the beacon of hope for the free world.

But then, there’s Arizona.  And Georgia.  And California.  And most egregious of all, there are Broward and Palm Beach Counties in Florida.

Unlike the rest of the country, the Democrat-controlled parts of these states don’t seem ever able to get their votes counted in an orderly and timely manner. Boxes filled with ballots of suspicious origin just keep on appearing seemingly out of the ether with no valid explanation for days, often weeks after the Tuesday on which the election supposedly and officially ended. Corrupt election officials in these areas just keep on counting votes in violation of the law and apparently toothless court orders as corrupt Democrat candidates and their press agents in the news media cheer them on.

Yes, the the same fake news media that has spent the last two full years now promoting the Democrat fantasy that the Russians stole the 2016 presidential election actively applauds the blatant efforts by Democrats to steal statewide elections in these pockets of the country. If you expected intellectual integrity from our nation’s dying journalism profession, you came to the wrong place.

All this post-election vote-finding and vote-counting has now grown the Democrats’ expected net gain in the U.S. House of Representatives from an estimated 30 seats to 40. In Arizona, the outcome of the race to replace Jeff Flake in the U.S. Senate has apparently been flipped, as have three congressional seats in California. In Georgia, boxes full of suspicious ballots just keep “appearing” out of thin air, and without exception they all heavily favor Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. Go figure.

Meanwhile, in Florida, the outcome of the race for state Ag Commissioner was flipped from R to D when elections supervisors in Broward and Palm Beach suddenly “found” upwards of 100,000 mail-in ballots that they had not reported as a part of their tally on Election Day, as they are required by law to do. Thanks to the intervention of the courts, it appears the vote-stealing efforts there will ultimately fail to flip the outcomes of the U.S. Senate and governor’s races, but they were able to narrow the GOP candidates’ winning margins to final tallies  that are close enough to trigger automatic machine recounts.

When Americans went to bed late on Tuesday night, it seemed certain that the Republican majority in the Senate would be expanded to 55 seats. As they wake up on Sunday morning, it seems all but certain that the majority will actually end up being a much more tenuous 53 seats, thanks to the post-Election Day reversals in Arizona and in Montana.  This majority is now small enough to once again allow Republican squishes like Murkowski, Collins and a handful of others to effectively control the judicial confirmation process in the Senate.

There was a “blue wave” after all in these mid-term elections, but not on Election Day. It was instead a “wave” of post-election vote-counting that sealed the deal for the Democrats as our worthless news media sat by and cheered the fraud.  If this surprises you, you haven’t been paying close enough attention.

Let’s go to the rest of the Week in Review…

It was the week that an 85 year-old Supreme Court Justice fell and broke 3 ribs, prompting d-list actress Alyssa Milano to offer to donate both of her…wait for it….KIDNEYS to save Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s life. I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

It was the week that the fake news media, in coordination with the Democrat Party, dropped almost all of its previously-breathless, wall-to-wall coverage of the fake “migrant caravan” after Election Day, and took to social media to try to blame their failure to report the story on – you guessed it – President Donald Trump.  Because, of course they did.

It was the week that the fake mail bomber had his day in court and our fake news media studiously ignored the story. Shockingly, all the fake reporters did not take to social media to blame this particular failure to report on President Trump. Seems like a narrative glitch to me.

It was the week that every single candidate on whose behalf Barack Hussein Obama campaigned during the final week got beat.  Well, they all lost on Election Day, anyway – we’ll have to see how things ultimately turn out in Georgia and Florida to have a final verdict, as all the Obama-inspired community organizers do their best to keep finding and counting “votes”.

It was the week that preening CNN peacock Jim Acosta made an ass of himself in the President’s post-election press conference, assaulting a young, female White House intern in the process, and no one in the whole #MeToo movement came to the intern’s defense. Many of them in fact defended Acosta, who had his White House press badge revoked for his troubles, and has still not had it restored as of this writing.

It was the week that sad, declining comic Chelsea Handler decided that posting a semi-nude video of herself on social media would be a great way to encourage millions of Americans to go out and vote.  It wasn’t.

It was the week that Sleepy Jeff Sessions lost his job, about 12 hours after Election Day had ended. Now he can go back to Alabama and regain the U.S. Senate seat he surrendered in 2017 to take the Attorney General job, and President Trump can put someone in the AG’s job who really wants to do it.  A good and proper outcome all around.

It was the week that loser Beto O’Rourke finally stopped texting seemingly everyone in America for money, at least until January, when he will undoubtedly kick off his 2020 presidential campaign. If you think I’m kidding, well, get back to me in January and tell me how your texts are going.

It was the week that this happened:

It was also the week that this happened:

And finally, it was the week that this happened, and no one in our fake national news media uttered a peep of protest:

*sigh*

Just another week with about 800 different news cycles in America.

That is all.

Tuesday was an Epic Day for Conservatives on Twitter

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Before we get to the Twitter hijinks, here is today’s Public Service Announcement.:  David Bernstein posted the following at Instapundit today.  Next time some leftist nitwit tells you we now have a “far-right Court”, whip this out and prove him wrong:

WE DON’T HAVE A “RADICAL RIGHT-WING SUPREME COURT,” despite lots of mewing on the left to the contrary. Here are some things that would be at the top of the list for a radical right-wing Court: Here are the sorts of things that would be at the top of the agenda for a radical right-wing Court: (1) ban abortion nationwide as a violation of the right to life protected by the due process clause; (2) rule that publicly-provided (but not funded) education is unconstitutional because it inherently involves viewpoint discrimination by the government, or at least require vouchers for those who object to the public school curriculum; (3) overrule an 1898 precedent and completely abolish birthright citizenship; (4) Use the First Amendment as a sword to require “fairness” in the left-dominated media. Not only is the Supreme Court not about to do any of things, I don’t think any of these things would even get one vote on the current Court. Moreover, merely bringing the scope of Congress’s constitutional back to where it was, say, in 1935, which was already much broader than the original meaning of the Commerce power, probably wouldn’t get more than one or two votes. What you are looking at right now is a conservative Court that will only affect society on the margins, not a “radical right-wing” Court.

 

That point when the Pantsuit Princess went full-on Nazi.  Can the rest of her party be far behind?:

Come to think of it, the Kavanaugh smear campaign may have just demonstrated that the rest of her party is actually way ahead of her.

 

Example number 45,045 why President Donald Trump should never.  stop.  tweeting.  Not ever.:

…speaking of which…:

And then there was this…:

 

Meanwhile, your fake news media mavens were busy spinning the Nikki Haley resignation in the most negative way possible.:

 

Fake journalists gonna fake the news and there’s not a damn thing we can do about it.:

 

But hey, Jake Tapper works at CNN, after all, where the fake journalists get rewarded for spewing outrageous falsehoods like this.:

 

Here, Tom Nelson sums up the essence of the ongoing ClimateScam in 280 characters.:

Earlier in the day, yours truly had tweeted about the report Mr. Nelson was referencing.:

And to think that Ted Cruz is pounding poor Irish Bob O’Rourke for supporting a comparatively miserly 24 cent increase in the gas tax.

 

This is true, which is what makes her such a perfect Democrat senator.:

 

Finally, as he does so frequently, legendary actor James Woods perfectly captures the hypocrisy of the deranged left in a very succinct little tweet.:

Like I said:  Epic.

GoFundMe Accounts are the Democrats’ Latest Racket

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

A (spineless) man in his element. – If you’re into punishing yourself, tune into tonight’s “60 Minutes” on CBS, where the Amazing Man With No Spine, Jeff Flake, will appear in a joint interview with Democrat Senator Chris Coons.  There you will see a man truly in his element, sitting down and sharing talking points with a Democrat politician and a Democrat activist fake journalist from CBS.

Hey, who knows?  Maybe this is a job interview for Flake.  After all, the ratings for the CBS Evening News have been in the toilet for years now, and Flake couldn’t do any worse than the current anchor guy is doing.

As if to prove my point about where he is truly in his element, Flake also made a joint appearance with the slimy Coons on stage at something called the Global Citizen Festival, a music event organized and televised by the newsfakers at far-leftwing MSNBC.  There, in front of this mob of social justice warriors, snowflakes and disciples of George Soros, Coons of course hailed Flake as a “hero,” which is exactly what he is to these people.

What would you do for a cool $1 million? – #MeToo movement activists and their fake news media shills have spent the week castigating anyone who dares to question Christina Ford’s serial lying about Judge Kavanaugh by claiming “there’s nothing in it for her to come forward!”

Uh, well, it turns out there a ton of money “in it” for her to tell her tale, as two GoFundMe accounts set up in her name have now already raised more than $700,000 and will certainly top $1 million and much more before this coming week is out.  Now, these funds were ostensibly set up to pay for Ms. Ford’s legal costs, but her own lawyers testified under penalty of perjury to the Senate Judiciary Committee that they were in fact working “pro bono” for Ms. Ford, so this money is actually most likely going right into the witness’s pocket.

So, here’s a hypothetical: let’s say you’re a college professor knocking down no more than $150,000 per year, and someone comes to you and tells you that hey, you can make a million bucks by spending the next couple of months being prepped for testimony by some of the world’s greatest experts in training people how to lie on the witness stand, and then spending half a day in front of a congressional committee.  All of your expenses will be paid, and you’ll be set for life.  Would you do it?

If you hadn’t figured this out yet, the use of these GoFundMe accounts is the new Democrat racket – the new way they have landed on to bribe people for doing their bidding while avoiding the scrutiny of the IRS, the FBI and the Federal Election Commission.  Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, and several others have now profited handsomely from this racket, and it will continue unless and until these federal agencies get their acts together and start auditing where the money is coming from and for what purpose.

“Wait, me?  I didn’t do that.  Er, uh, we didn’t do that.  I don’t think…did we do that?  What?  Er, um, my staff tells me we didn’t do that.” – President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three beautiful, gorgeous words) was in West Virginia campaigning for GOP senatorial candidate Patrick Morrisy and against Democrat snake Joe Manchin last night.  During his stemwinder (they’re always stemwinders at these events) he did a hilarious riff on evil Dianne Feinstein’s stammering non-denial denial when Chuck Grassley asked whether she or her staff had leaded Ms. Ford’s letter to the fake news media.

Here’s the link.  Trust me – you have got to watch this.  Too funny for words, and dead on.

Let’s close this Sunday morning tour de force with some examples why, if you aren’t following @GDBlackmon on Twitter, you are not having enough fun in life:

And finally, there’s this PG-13 rated little gem…

I got a million of ’em folks.  I’ll be here all week

If You Get Your News From Twitter, Tuesday was, like, Totally Awesome

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Some Twitter highlights from today:

Wait, you mean, like, newspapers that print inflammatory, blatantly false op/eds defaming the President of the United States without identifying the writer? Hey, I know one…

So, what do you do if you’re one of the fake news media outlets that has been promoting the notion that Irish Beto O’Rourke is going to beat Ted Cruz in the Texas Senate race, and you see a new Quinnipiac poll that has Cruz expanding his lead in the race to 9 points?  If you’re the newsfakers at @The Hill, you hilariously bury the lead as far and deeply as you can possibly bury it:

…and if that doesn’t get you far enough into fakery, you issue another tweet with another hilariously-biased headline that names the Democrat, but identifies the Republican with the four-letter last name only as “Texas GOP senator…”.  Holy cow, that is some serious #fakenews right there.

Meanwhile, Stephen Miller lightens the mood with a hilarious offering of his own, lampooning the shameful efforts by Democrats to falsely portray the FBI’s jurisdiction in the Kavanaugh matter…

Houston radio talk show host nails Democrats and their voting habits here:

Meanwhile, back in #fakenews world, NBC refuses to be outdone by The Hill or anyone else.  Note the use of the term “blindsided”.  Yes, because President Trump has only been transparently previewing his declassification action for about four months now:

 

Watching this guy change positions is like watching a child with a damn yo-yo. Blast Jeff Flake all you want, but at least he is consistently venal and cowardly.

Back in #fakenews world, MSNBC’s Kyle Griffin delivers a real “scoop” – that shameful valor thief Richard Blumenthal opposes the Kavanaugh nomination.  You’re a real scoop-meister, there, Kyle.

And finally, from our Good God Who Cares department, the Daily Caller delivers this little gem:

*sigh*

Just another day in getting the news as only Twitter can deliver it America.

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.

This Weinstein Deal Is Just Getting Started. Fun!

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The king is dead.  It’s safe to talk now. – So, Harvey Weinstein gets fired, loses his power, and suddenly, the Hollywood cockroaches get brave and start scrambling out of the woodwork to “denounce” him.  But of course, some of them claim they didn’t know, in spite of the fact the guy had been abusing women for a quarter century, often in public.  The increasingly disgusting Meryl Streep issued a statement in which she claims to have no knowledge at all of Weinstein’s behavior towards women, a patently unbelievable denial given her longtime close relationship with Weinstein, which includes calling him her “god” at an awards ceremony.  Glenn Close would only admit to having heard “rumors”.  Yeah, right.  Jessica Chastain, Emma Thompson, and Romala Garai all came out with more believable condemnations of the big Hollywood muckety-muck now that he can’t get them jobs.  Great.
  • Meanwhile, actress Rose McGowan, one of the few who was brave enough to start making noise before Weinstein lost all power, continues to use her Twitter account to call out others with knowledge who continue to remain silent.  Alyssa Milano, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lawrence, Matt Damon, Russell Crowe and Casey Affleck have all been targets of her tweets, along with the entire board of directors of the Weinstein Company, who of course had to know about the boss’s behavior since they had been approving all the lawsuit settlements and other payoffs.
  • Late Monday, the Weinstein Company announced that Harvey Weinstein’s name would be removed from all TV shows he has produced over the years, which is the Hollywood version of tearing down monuments to confederate generals.  Hey, at least they’re focusing on their own monuments for once.
  • Those of you who thought this whole scandal would end once you learned Weinstein had been fired from his own company, worry not:  it is just getting started, and a whole bunch of Hollywood scumbags are going to have a lot of explaining to do, as long as Rose McGowan doesn’t lose her nerve.  Fun!  Someone go pop some popcorn.
  • The government’s Vegas narrative is falling apart. – In Las Vegas, Sheriff Joe Lombardo held a press conference that clarified nothing and added a ton of confusion to the public’s knowledge base of what might have really happened there last Sunday:
    • The Sheriff now says that security guard Jesus Campos was shot a full 6 minutes before the gunman began shooting at the crowd below.  For a full week prior to Monday’s presser, authorities had credited Campos for having interrupted the shooter 10 minutes after he started shooting, thus stopping the carnage.  Why did it take a damn week to figure this simple element of the puzzle out?
    • The Sheriff also appeared to admit to having evidence that the shooter may have actually checked into the hotel on September 25 rather than the story of a September 28 check-in that officials have been pushing for a week.  Good lord, does Mandalay Bay keep check-in records or not?  How can this possibly even be a question 8 days after the massacre took place?
    • In spite of half a dozen eye-witnesses who saw the shooter hanging around with an Asian woman at Mandalay Bay in the days prior to the assault, the Sheriff claimed on Monday that investigators have come up with no evidence that the killer was seen with anyone prior to the killing spree.
  • This is absurd.  We are 8 days down the road from one of the biggest mass murders in modern times, and the government obviously can’t get its preferred narrative straight.  I’ve spent the past week thinking Lombardo is the honest broker among law enforcement working the case.  Monday’s press conference did not inspire confidence at all.
  • ESPN fake journalist Jemele Hill a few weeks ago:  “President Trump is a White Supremacist!”
    ESPN management:  “You go, girl!”
    ESPN fake journalist Jemele Hill on Monday:  “Y’all need to boycott sponsors of the Dallas Cowboys!”
    ESPN management:  “You suspended, girl!”
    Money talks.

Just another day in the government’s narrative on the Vegas massacre is falling apart America.

That is all.
