Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
News you won’t see reported on CNN – Just so you know, your President of the United States of America donated his second quarter salary ($100,000) yesterday to a project that helps rebuild military cemeteries.
Hey, remember all those media-generated rumors that Chief of Staff John Kelly was fed up with the President and going to resign? – Yeah, those were fake. The White House announced yesterday that President Trump had asked Kelly to commit to staying on through 2020, and that General Kelly has agreed to do so.
This move was intended not only to signal stability in the White House ranks, but to emphasize to the fake news media that the President has no concerns about being caught up in their “Russia Collusion” fantasy or of being impeached by a Democrat congress. Awesome.
Today’s Required Viewing – Last night, CNN’s fake newsman Anderson Cooper had dimwitted never-Trumper Max Boot on a panel with America’s premier expert on Russia, Prof. Stephen Cohen, to discuss U.S. relations with that country. The result is five minutes of Cooper and Boot being utterly decimated and made to look like a couple whining children by a vastly superior intellect. Ever watched your cat toy around with a helpless grasshopper for an hour before finally killing it? It’s like that. Just. Like. That.
Watch it here. You’ll be glad you did.
Your Fake News Media in Action! – The fake news media is really running out of scandals to dummy up. This morning, all the talking heads and fake reporters are attempting to make a big deal out of the President’s claim at his Tampa, Florida rally last night that “you have to show an ID to buy groceries.” Your fake news media is contending that claim is false, and “THE PRESIDENT’S A LIARRRRRR!!!!!!!!”
Funny, though, I waited for what seemed like an interminable amount of time at the local Albertson’s on Monday as the lady in front of me sllllllooooowly wrote a check for her tab, after which the checker asked her for her driver’s license, which the lady then slooooowwwwwwllllly dug out of her purse. Which of course is exactly the process that the President was referring to.
So who’s lying? It’s not hard to figure out.
More news you won’t see on CNN – As you no doubt know by now, since it’s pretty much the only story the fake news media really focused on the last couple of days, the trial of Paul Manafort in Virginia has gotten underway. While everyone at CNN and the rest of the fake news media continues to claim this is all about their Russia Collusion fantasy play, it is in fact not about Russia or Manafort’s role in the Trump campaign at all. In fact, is so NOT related to either of those subjects that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s crack team of Clinton/Obama hacks has actually instructed their witnesses to avoid mentioning the T-word.
Yes, that’s right: the hacks running the “investigation” that’s supposedly designed to prove the Trump Campaign “colluded” with Russian agents to influence the 2016 election are actively instructing their witnesses to avoid that particular subject entirely. Which is not really surprising given that the charges of tax evasion and bank fraud in the case are over Manafort’s dealings from a decade ago. You couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried.
Oh, hey, that’s not supposed to be happening, because Blue Wave or something. – A new pair of senate race polls show that the media’s effort to revive its whole “Blue Wave” narrative is a bit premature. In Nevada, where Democrats are just absolutely certain they’ll knock off unpopular GOP incumbent Dean Heller, a new Suffolk poll has Heller leading his challenger by 1 point. In Florida, where Democrats are just sure their slimy incumbent Bill Nelson will easily retain a seat that was not supposed to be up for grabs, a new Mason-Dixon poll has GOP candidate Rick Scott leading by 3 points.
There is no “Blue Wave” building, folks. It just isn’t there.
The great turning of the “Russia Collusion” tide continues. – Eight days ago, the Campaign Update detailed the belief that the July 21 release of the FISA warrant filings by Tom Fitton at Judicial Watch would come to be remembered as the event that heralded the great turning of the tide in the whole Trump/Russia collusion fantasy the Democrats and their media guardians have been using to divide the nation for two years now.
Since that piece was written, we’ve seen ex-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper tossed his former boss Barack Obama under the bus and we’ve seen Rudy Giuliani casually toss out the fact that prosecutors and the White House are in possession of dozens of recordings of 2016/17 phone calls between ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen and reporters/media executives.
Hey, remember Tony Podesta? You know, the brother of John Podesta, the spirit cooking chairman of the Hillary Clinton campaign? The high-powered DC lobbyist who mysteriously shut down his practice, fired all his employees and disappeared from public view last November when his former business dealings with Paul Manafort started making the news?
Yeah, that Tony Podesta. Now comes this little bit of news, quietly rolled out by the hacks at NBC on their low-traffic website: It turns out that Mr. Podesta, along with former lobbying partners Vin Weber and former Obama White House Counsel Greg Craig have for months now been under investigation by U.S. attorneys working out of the Southern District of New York.
The rumor that this investigation had been initiated was first reported way back in November, but then quickly quashed by a fake news media desperate to focus solely on reports negative to President Trump. But now that the tide is clearly turning in the whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy play, NBC suddenly felt the urge to “update” its previous reporting on this little matter.
The real fun is going to come after DOJ IG Michael Horowitz issues his upcoming FISA abuse report, and all the fake news hacks at NBC and the rest of the #fakenews universe start figuring out what U.S. Attorney John Huber and his 400+ staff of attorneys and investigators have been up to out in Salt Lake City since last summer. That’ll all start taking place in late August/early September, just when the mid-term election campaigns all get started in earnest.
The only “wave” building in this country is the turning tide in the Russia Collusion fantasy play.
Just another day in the bad guys are losing America.
That is all.
