Trump Campaign Banishes Bloomberg News – But Why Not CNN?

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[Note: Today’s Campaign Update will be on a delayed morning schedule from November 30 through  December 4.]

Good move. Now do CNN and the New York Times and the Washington Post and… – Trump Campaign Chairman Brad Parscale announced on Monday that the campaign would no longer be offering press credentials to anyone representing Bloomberg News. That inevitable move – labeled as “surprising” by many corrupt media outlets – comes after an internal memo written by Bloomberg News editor-in-chief John Micklethwait announced that the outlet would continue its “tradition of not investigating Mike (and his family and foundation) and we will extend the same policy to his rivals in the Democratic primaries.”

So, Bloomberg News desperately wants to be considered a “news” outlet, yet its own Editor-in-Chief proudly boasts to his staff that it is in fact a campaign tool for its owner and his opponents in the Democrat presidential primary. In other words, Bloomberg is just another CNN, NYTimes, WaPo, MSNBC and on and on and on. The sad part of that is that Bloomberg actually does a fine job of business reporting, and if it had just stuck to that mission, this reputational black eye would have never come about.

The only really “surprising” thing about this move is that the Trump Campaign’s action hasn’t been followed – or frankly, led – by a similar action being taken by the White House press team. Why should a self-admitted propaganda outlet for a Democrat Party that has changed its mission from governing  to attempting a never-ending coup d’etat effort be allowed on the grounds of the White House? It makes no sense, just as it makes no sense that Jim Acosta still holds a press pass and John Brennan still maintains his security clearance. You might as well be wheeling a Trojan Horse through the White House gates.

Here is the text of Parscale’s press release announcing the campaign’s decision:

The decision by Bloomberg News to formalize preferential reporting policies is troubling and wrong.

Bloomberg News has declared that they won’t investigate their boss or his Democrat competitors, many of whom are current holders of high office, but will continue critical reporting on President Trump. As President Trump’s campaign, we are accustomed to unfair reporting practices, but most news organizations don’t announce their biases so publicly. Presented with this new policy from Bloomberg News, our campaign was forced to determine how to proceed.

Since they have declared their bias openly, the Trump Campaign will no longer credential representatives of Bloomberg News for rallies or other campaign events. We will determine whether to engage with individual reporters or answer inquiries from Bloomberg News on a case-by-case basis. This will remain the policy of the Trump campaign until Bloomberg News publicly rescinds its decision.

Here is the key sentence from that release: “As President Trump’s campaign, we are accustomed to unfair reporting practices, but most news organizations don’t announce their biases so publicly.” While it is true that Bloomberg’s internal memo is an especially egregious admission of journalistic bias, the reality is that we have seen similar admissions of toadying to the Democrat daily narrative by CNN, the New York Times and other major outlets.  Sure, the policies haven’t been “formalized,” but how does John Micklethwait differ from multiple leaked memos we’ve seen from Dean Baquet at the Times and Jeff Zucker at CNN?

It’s exactly the same thing.

So yeah, the singling out of Bloomberg for this form of banishment from access to the President’s re-election campaign is a little surprising, but only because similar action wasn’t taken across a broad spectrum of utterly corrupt propaganda outlets.

A pox on all their houses.

That is all.

That Time Newsweek Pretended to Have Journalistic Ethics

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[Note: Today’s Campaign Update will be on a delayed morning schedule from November 30 through  December 4.]

Wow. Newsweek is pretending to be all journalist-y and stuff now. – As reported here at the Campaign Update on Friday, a fake reporter for the on-life-support fake magazine Newsweek named Jessica Kwong beclowned herself and her corrupt editors by putting out a Thanksgiving morning piece in which she claimed President Trump planned to spend his day “Tweeting, golfing and more.”

But just hours later it was revealed that the President in fact made a secret flight to Afghanistan to spend the day with the U.S. military personnel at Bagram Air Force base. In response to that revelation, Kwong sheepishly issued a tweet in which she claimed to have made “an honest mistake.” Now, we all know that’s a lot of stuff and nonsense – or as Joe Biden would call it, “a bunch of malarky” – because it was obviously an effort by Ms. Kwong to damage the President’s reputation based on false assumptions about his character, something Newsweek and the rest of the corrupt news media outlets do every day.

In response to Kwong’s self-immolation, President Trump himself issued this hilarious tweet:

If this were CNN or the New York Times, you’d normally expect Ms. Kwong to be elevated to an editor’s job or maybe even the editorial board itself for engaging in such shameful hackery and self-humiliation. After all, Paul Krugman and Brian Stelter still thrive despite their serial clownish hackery. But apparently the public outcry towards Newsweek was enough to force the miserable cretins who run that operation to pretend to have suddenly developed a set of journalistic efforts, given that they fired Ms. Kwong on Saturday.

In announcing the firing, Newsweek issued the following laughable statement:

So, Ms. Kwong is long gone, but Newsweek will struggle on, hoping you will think they have all these, like, “processes” and stuff in place, or something, to prevent it all from happening over and over and over again in the future. Because journalism!

No one should feel sorry for Ms. Kwong. We will no doubt find out in the coming week that she has landed herself a job at some other fake, corrupt news outlet, because the Democrat/media/deep state Axis of Disinformation always rewards its loyal foot soldiers. Newsweek did what it did strictly for reasons of self-preservation, but that doesn’t mean anyone at, say, Politico or Time will have to act accordingly.

Or hey, maybe she’ll grab a job at Bloomberg, a “news” operation so corrupt that it unashamedly brags about the fact that it refuses to investigate any of the myriad Democrat presidential candidates, focusing all of its efforts on President Trump. That seems like an outfit where a clown-suited hack like Jessica Kwong will fit right in.

That is all.

It’s Predicament Day for Democrats and Disloyal White House Staffers

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Oh, noes, not predicaments! – Y’all, we have a bunch of really awful people finding themselves in “predicaments” today – aren’t you sad? So, so, so sad for these terrible, sleazy people? Yeah, me neither.

The first bunch of execrable jackasses who find themselves in a predicament today are the leaders of the Democrat Party, and they’re in their current predicament thanks to what Bloomberg describes as “a sliver” of The Commie’s voter base, who are in what the media likes to call “Bernie or bust mode.” These voters are so embittered by the fact that the DNC fixed the 2016 nominating process for the Pantsuit Princess that they’ve decided they’ll simply abandon the Party if their Commie hero doesn’t get his way this time.

But hey, what’s the worry here? As I noted yesterday, Bernie’s the Democrat front-runner now, well ahead of Creepy Uncle Joe and 20 points up on Irish Bob O’Rourke. And isn’t it interesting that we don’t see Bloomberg or anyone else in the news media writing pieces about “Biden or Bust” voters or “Beto or Bust” voters? Although, the way they’re all slobbering over Mayor Pete right now, we will surely see some “Buttigieg or Bust” pieces in the near future.

Oh, hey, and have you noticed this?  Take a look at the photo above and tell me what the four men pictured have in common.  That’s right: The Party of Social Justice Warriors and campus Snowflakes has four pasty-white males leading everyone else in its nominating process. Taken together, those four symbols of white male privilege and toxic quasi-masculinity are pulling 70% of the support in the race in the new Emerson Poll.

Remember when Kamala Harris and Cory Booker were the Party’s “rising stars” according to the fake news media? They’ve been completely eclipsed by Irish Bob and Mayor Pete, two of the whitest white men on planet earth. The one real Hispanic candidate in the race, former San Antonio Mayor Joaquin Castro, having not been endowed with the fake media’s “rising star” tag, sits at 3% in the Emerson poll, and just 1% in every other recent poll taken in the race. The fakest Indian in the race, Elizabeth Warren, just keeps bumbling and stumbling along at 5-8% support in the various polls.

That reality in and of itself presents quite the predicament for the Democrat Party, because there are tons and tons of SJWs out there who aren’t going to vote for a white male, whether he’s a real Commie like Bernie, or pretend commies like Irish Bob or Mayor Pete. So any way you slice this pie, the Democrats have quite the predicament, thanks to their half-century-long cynical focus on identity politics.

I’m cool with that.

And now a word from our sponsors… – I spent a very fun half-hour on NewsTalk 93.1 FM in Montgomery, AL with host Greg Budell on Tuesday. The podcast is below. My segment starts at about the 35 minute mark, when Greg and his producer Joey tee up Cher’s Democrat Party theme song, “Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves” as my intro. But listen to the whole thing – Greg’s hilarious and runs a great program.

 

Follow this link for more of this great show’s podcasts, and follow Greg on Twitter at @GregBudell.

Now, back to today’s “predicaments”… – In other Predicament news, the pending release of the Mueller Report tomorrow by Attorney General William Barr has people nervous, and we can all imagine why that would be the case.

Apparently no one is more nervous today than all the creeps and seditionists on the White House staff who have been working from the inside to undermine President Donald Trump and his Administration for the last two years. The news-fakers at Vanity Fair are reporting that some of these scumbags and sleazeballs are “experiencing “breakdown-level anxiety” over whether their names or identifying details will appear in the report.”

Oh, my. Oh, my, my, my. Don’t you all just feel so terrible for them? Yeah, neither do I.

But boy, this is a real, big-time predicament, isn’t it? You’re a White House staffer. You took the job on a pledge to be loyal to the President and the country, and you have spent your time on the job leaking trash to our garbage news media and doing whatever else you could to inhibit that same President’s ability to do his job on behalf of the American people. Now, you’re afraid that the release of the report by the Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” who’s completed his 22-month sham investigation is going to catch you up in its undertow.

Well, that’s just dandy, as my dear Dad used to say.

Bring it on, Mr. Barr. Let’s out these seditionists and provide them with a little public-exposure “justice” of their own. Couldn’t think of a more deserving den of snakes.

That is all.

Fake News, Fake Republicans and Real, Live Snowflakes – Merry Resistmas, America!

  • Now we know why his approval rating in Arizona is 11%. – Hey, remember when Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake used to pretend to be a Republican, just like his fellow Senator, John McCain?  Yeah, those were good times, but they’re over now.  On Tuesday, Flake wrote a check to ultra-liberal Democrat Doug Jones, who is running against the very weird Roy Moore for the senate seat in Alabama.  Embarrassingly, Flake’s check to Jones, which he made sure to trumpet all over the social media space, was for a paltry $100, meaning he’s not only rankly dishonest, he’s also a skinflint.  But hey, liberals are always far more generous giving away other people’s money than contributing their own, right?
  • Hey, all you SJWs, snowflakes and pussy hat wearers, if you lack a tree-topper for your “holiday” tree this year, a mail-order company can supply you one of your favorite “inspiring woman”, so long as your favorite “inspiring woman” is either Beyonce’, Serena Williams or Hillary Clinton!  I swear I don’t make this stuff up: 
  •  
  • Our young people seem to suffer from a severe lack of self-awareness. – The UK Telegraph carried a piece yesterday titled, “Don’t call us snowflakes – it damages our mental health, say young people”.  I kid you not, it’s a serious piece.  Note to young people:  If being called a ‘snowflake’ damages your mental health, that means YOU’RE A DAMN SNOWFLAKE!  How is it possible that that really needed to be said?
  • Tuesday was a big day for fake news news.  Let’s start with ABC News’s announcement that its star fake reporter, Brian Ross, will no longer be allowed to cover stories involving President Trump when he comes back from his 30 day holiday in January.  ABC had also made sure to leak the text of a “memo” written by its News Division President James Goldston, ostensibly lambasting his staff over Ross’s false report from last Friday, which temporarily tanked the stock market.  This is all window dressing, folks – ABC used the same tactic after Ross filed a previous fake report a few years ago, falsely tying a mass shooter to the Tea Party.  Nothing is going to change at ABC – the news fakery will go on unabated.
  • Meanwhile, over at NBC, if you are laboring under the illusion that Matt Lauer’s intra-office sexcapades were some sort of big secret at the Peacock Network, well, think again.  Everyone at NBC – and apparently at every other fake news media outlet – knew everything about Lauer, and many of his colleagues were willing participants and abettors of his behavior.  That’s the only reasonable conclusion one can draw from the report linked here from Fox News, which details the proceedings of a 2008 obscene roasting of Lauer at which everyone assembled in the room laughed uproariously about the fake news host’s debauchery.  I would post out-takes from it, but the Campaign Update draws the line at repeating jokes about anal sex.  In any event, if you’re thinking that NBC’s convenient jettisoning of Lauer – which will save the network $27 million annually – means the culture there will change, you should probably disabuse yourself of that silly notion.  No word if Charlie Rose and Mark Halperin had seats at the head table, but it does seem likely.
  • Hey, remember when real journalists would always require at least two corroborating sources before running with a big news story?  Yeah, those times are dead. – The normally fairly reliable Bloomberg ran with a report mid-day on Tuesday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had issued a subpoena to Deutsche Bank demanding it turn over client records related to its relationship with President Trump.  Within a few hours, Trump’s legal team had completely debunked the story, and one can only wonder  what the motive was for running with it in the first place, given that Bloomberg cited only a single, naturally unidentified source for the information.
  • But hey, faking the news is a highly-competitive business, and if Bloomberg’s gonna play with the big boys at the NYTimes and the WaPo, inconvenient things like real journalistic practices and editorial control have to be tossed out the proverbial window, right?  Right.

Just another day in fakety fakey fake news media America.

That is all.

President Trump Prepares To End The Biggest Climate Scam Of All

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • That whooshing sound you hear is the air coming out of the biggest single scam in human history.:  Climate frauds everywhere spent all day Wednesday in a panic over news reports that President Trump has decided to pull the U.S. out of Barack Obama’s Paris Climate Accord, which is nothing more than just another socialist wealth redistribution scheme.  CBS News was so focused on misinforming its brainwashed viewers that it had its fake reporters and fake anchor refer to the scheme as a “treaty” no fewer than six times in just under 2 minutes of air time.  It’s not a treaty – Barack Hussein Obama committed our 330 million citizens to forking over about $3 trillion between now and 2030 purely via executive fiat.  Why?  Because he knew the U.S. Senate would never approve it.
  • My favorite Democrat/fake media talking point of the day was this:  “There 195 countries who have signed onto the Paris Climate Accords!!!!”  Well, hell, of course they are – they’re like pigs lined up at a trough that they expect to soon be filled with U.S. money.
  • Second favorite Democrat/fake media talking point of the day:  “If Trump pulls out of Paris, that means we are leaving China and India in charge of cleaning up the environment!!!!!”  This unfortunate point came on the same day that India announced its plan to build no fewer than 175 new coal-fired power plants in the next few years, adding to the the reality that China has been opening about one new coal-fired plant each week for the last decade.  That’s what liberals refer to as climate “leadership”.
  • Here’s reality about Paris:  The UN itself admits that, if every country held to its commitments under the Accord (thus far, only the U.S. has been doing so), it would have the impact of lowering global temperatures – according to notoriously inaccurate climate computer models – just 2/10ths of 1 degree over the next 85 years.  In other words, no real measurable impact at all.  The UN says exactly this in its own reports.  Paris is just another Obama-era Climate fraud, one of thousands, and it is well past time for President Trump to keep his campaign promise and remove the U.S. from this farce.
  • Speaking of our former Climate Fraud-in-Chief, he and his wife Michelle announced that they have managed somehow to parlay his eight years of making $400,000 per year into being able to purchase a home in Washington DC for ….wait for it…$8.2 million.  That’s some fabulous investing going on right there.
  • He must have been reading my stuff.:  Liberal heads really exploded in earnest on Wednesday when former NY City Mayor Michael Bloomberg told an audience that he thinks Donald Trump has “about a 55 percent chance of being re-elected in 2020.”  I think his percentage is way low, but am glad he agrees with me.
  • Fakenews outlet Yahoo News reports that there is a new wave going on of mountain climbers issuing fake claims of having scaled Mount Everest.  Upon reading that story, every fake reporter, fake anchor and fake editor working at every major news outlet in to the United States began making plans to travel to Tibet and get in on the scam.
  • This is what the Democrats refer to as their Youth Movement.:  Don’t look now, but crazy ol’ Joe Biden has formed a PAC and is making plans to run for President in 2020, when he will be 78 years old, where he will likely face off against The Most Corrupt Woman In America, who will be 74, and Bernie Sanders, who will be pushing 80.  California Governor Jerry Brown, who would also be pushing 80 in 2020, is also making preliminary plans to run.  After they lose to Trump, maybe they can all move in together in a nice assisted living community near Coral Gables.

Just another day in dying Climate Fraud America.

That is all.
