No American Has Any Obligation to be Honest With Our Dishonest Media

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

Lewandowski’s right: No one has any obligation to be honest with a dishonest press. – Writing in The Atlantic, Russell Berman has a pearl-clutching piece about Cory Lewandowski treating Jerrold Nadler’s contemptible fake impeachment hearing yesterday with, well, contempt. Which is exactly what Lewandowski did, and deservedly so.

Berman lays out several examples of Lewandowski’s alleged contempt, and they’re all pretty much accurate. The upper east-side reader base of The Atlantic will all tut-tut and mutter ‘well, I never,’ naturally forgetting how they all cheered when an array of Obama-era officials committed mass perjury before the same committee during 2017-18, when it was chaired by a Republican.

One very interesting exchange Berman whines about came when Lewandowski told Democrat hired consultant Lawfare lawyer Barry Berke that,  “I have no obligation to be honest with the media because they are just as dishonest as anybody else,” a statement that elicited gasps in the hearing room. No doubt most, if not all of those gasps came from members of the media assembled there.

So, here’s the irony of a writer for The Atlantic complaining about Lewandowski’s contempt not just for the Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee, but also for the fake news media: On the same day Berman’s piece was published, the magazine produced another piece, written by the dishonest pair of New York Times reporters who were caught in massive lies about Justice Brett Kavanaugh over the weekend.

As discovered by the great Mollie Hemingway, Senior Editor for The Federalist, The Atlantic’s piece, intended as a free advertisement for the Times’ reporters’ new smear book on Kavanaugh, contains another gigantic whopper. As we pointed out in yesterday’s Campaign Update, the book focuses on an alleged incident during Kavanaugh’s time in college – 38 years ago – in which he supposedly committed a lewd act at a party towards a girl who was supposedly there.

Never mind that the girl in question has no memory of any such incident, or even being at the party – something you would think would stick in her mind into perpetuity. Never mind that the authors end up admitting that they have literally no actual witnesses to the alleged lewd act at all, and base their entire despicable book on pure hearsay that no real journalist would ever dream of citing. This is Brett Kavanaugh, threat to Roe v. Wade, we’re talking about here, so the dragon must be slain by any means possible, even if it requires the commission of conscious journalistic mendacity.

Hemingway exposed the authors for the deceitful hacks they truly are over the weekend, taking less than 24 hours to do so, and now exposes them even further as lying yet again in their Atlantic piece. In that piece, the authors claim that “The people who allegedly witnessed the event—Kavanaugh’s friends Kevin Genda, David Todd, and David White—have kept mum about it.”

That is a straight-up falsehood, as Hemingway details, pointing to a New Yorker piece written about the alleged incident a year ago:

One of the male classmates who Ramirez said egged on Kavanaugh denied any memory of the party. ‘I don’t think Brett would flash himself to Debbie, or anyone, for that matter,’ he said. Asked why he thought Ramirez was making the allegation, he responded, ‘I have no idea.’ The other male classmate who Ramirez said was involved in the incident commented, ‘I have zero recollection.’

In a statement, two of those male classmates who Ramirez alleged were involved in the incident, the wife of a third male student she said was involved, and one other classmate, Dan Murphy, disputed Ramirez’s account of events: ‘We were the people closest to Brett Kavanaugh during his first year at Yale. He was a roommate to some of us, and we spent a great deal of time with him, including in the dorm where this incident allegedly took place. Some of us were also friends with Debbie Ramirez during and after her time at Yale. We can say with confidence that if the incident Debbie alleges ever occurred, we would have seen or heard about it—and we did not.

There’s even more, but you get the gist. The New York Times reporters – who I refuse to name here for the same reason I refuse to name mass killers, because they’re all shameful attention-seekers – at best failed to conduct even the most rudimentary research into the previous reporting by others on this alleged incident. At worst, they simply hoped to cover up the truth about what these supposed witnesses have in fact said about it.

So, this just becomes another in a long, long line of incidents in which “news” outlets like the New York Times and The Atlantic have been caught in blatant efforts to deceive the public about Trump-related officials. It should also be noted that the New Yorker piece referred to by Hemingway was itself revealed to contain a string of falsehoods shortly after it was published.

In the 4 years since Donald Trump announced his presidential candidacy, we have witnessed dozens of incidents – if not hundreds – in which supposed “news” organizations like these three, along with CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, the Washington Post and many others have published or aired heinously false reports about President Trump, his family, and a vast array of Administration officials and been forced to later sheepishly correct them and even fire the reporters and editors involved.

These are not honest mistakes. These are not oversights or errors in the editing process. These are obvious, intentional efforts to deceive in order to attain a political goal. We know this because the “mistakes” always, without exception, serve to damage the President or anyone connected to him. Honest mistakes would cut both ways.

This is the sorry state of America’s news media today, and it is not getting better over time. If anything, the incidents of outright false reporting are accelerating as the Democrats and their media toadies continue to fail in their efforts to “get” Trump. A sense of rising desperation does that to people.

Given this reality, what possible obligation would Cory Lewandowski or any other American have to deal with such a manifestly dishonest media establishment honestly and truthfully? When you know that anything you say to a reporter is going to be twisted, edited, omitted or taken out of context in order to be made to seem damaging, why worry about honesty? When you know the media outlet you are dealing with cares nothing about facts, why bother with facts?

The press corps can gasp, tsk-tsk and mutter all the “well, I nevers” they want, but this is a situation of their own making. They have made this bed, and now they are lying in it, both figuratively and literally.

Enemies of the people, plain and simple.

That is all.

CBS Exposes a Corrupt New York Times Smear

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

That thing that happens when not everyone is down with the latest smear effort. – The newsfakers at the New York Times made big news of their own on Monday when they were forced by actual journalists to issue a correction to their latest smear story targeting Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

This latest story was penned by two Times fake reporters who have a new book out. Oh, joy! The book rehashes old accusations against Kavanaugh brought forward and rejected as baseless last year, while pretending to add new meat to the bone to one accuser who supposedly claimed that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party. The fake authors claim in the book to have found 7 “witnesses” who supposedly remember the incident.

Big problem: Not a single one of those seven “witnesses” make any claim to have actually witnessed anything. Only one of them was actually at the party in question and has no specific memory of Kavanaugh being involved in any exposing of anything other than a beer cup. None of the other six were even at the party. Oh.

Wait! It gets better: The alleged “victim” herself has no memory of the “incident” alleged in the book, and refused to even discuss it with the authors. Now, that’s some “journalism” right there, huh?

The fake reporters naturally saved those bits of  key information for very late in the book and made no mention of them in the story they penned for the oh-so accommodating pages of their employer’s fake newspaper. But actual journalists at other media outlets, including Mollie Hemingway at The Federalist, exposed all of this and much more over the weekend, creating a huge blowback towards the Times and its fake reporters and forcing the Times to issue a correction to the story.

This smear effort was so transparent and corrupt that it even had Brit Hume, who has stubbornly avoided calling his colleagues corrupt all these years, finally giving in to unavoidable reality:

But by the time the “correction” was issued, the intended damage to Justice Kavanaugh had already been done, which was the plan all along. For every 100 people who read or heard about the original story, you might have five who read or heard about the correction. This is how our fake news media does these smear campaigns, of course.

Normally, everyone else in the fake news media is fully on-board with smears led by the Times, and never make any effort to inform their readers/viewers of the journalistic mendacity being practiced by the fake newspaper of record. Last night, Jan Crawford at CBS News had apparently had enough of this nonsense.

Crawford, in a report aired on the CBS Evening News, reported on the Times’s correction, and went even further, noting the following:

Oh. Gosh, that’s kind of important information, too, isn’t it? This bit of explosive, real news also gets passing mention in the book by the fake Times reporters, but was naturally excluded from their piece in the Times. The news about Leland Keyser putting the lie to Blasey Ford’s original put-up smear is, in fact, the only real “news” contained in the book at all.

So, here we have the anatomy of the classic fake news media smear as led by the New York Times.

– When your first massive effort to smear the subject during his nominating process failed to bring its desired result, have two of your fakest reporters collaborate on a book that rehashes the original smears but supplements them with “new” information that isn’t new at all.

– When they stumble across one bit of actual real news that would be bombshell evidence of the subject’s actual innocence related to the original smear, bury it in the book and hope no one actually reads it.

– Then have your fake reporters pen a story for your newspaper and make sure they don’t mention the real news in it and exclude key facts that would also serve to exonerate the subject.

– Take that story to print, and when you get caught excluding the key information, wait at least 48 hours before issuing a half-assed “correction” that no one will read.

As long as everyone else in the fake news media is on-board with the new smear effort, you’re golden. Conservative outlets like The Federalist and Fox News don’t matter because your own readers/viewers will just dismiss them out of hand.

Foolproof, right? And CBS news, whose own “news” division is mostly just a bunch of toadies who do little but parrot DNC talking points and rehash stories printed by the Times and the Washington Post each day, is basically the last competing outlet you’d expect to give up the ghost.

But there’s Jan Crawford, bringing the Times’s fake chickens home to roost. Who knows why? Maybe Times Editor Dean Baquet pissed somebody off.

Regardless, good for Ms. Crawford for her decision to be a real journalist, at least for one day. I bet it feels good for her to be reporting the truth for a change.

The Democrat/media propaganda complex is going to need a new smear.

That is all.

Why The Media Falls for Obvious Hoaxes: Because, Like Fox Mulder, They Want to Believe

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

Jussie, we hardly knew ye. – And just like that, Jussie Smollett’s obvious hoax, which was promoted by the entirety of your fake news media and a raft of craven Democrat politicians for two solid weeks because it fit their anti-Trump narrative, came to a crashing end. In case you missed it, news came down last night that Chicago Police had charged the neurotic actor with felony disorderly conduct and filing a false report. And thus, yet another media-promoted hoax – which was an obvious hoax from its first fake reports – crashes and burns with no one in the media bothering to apologize for their own conduct.

Some have speculated over the past few days about why it is that our fake news media keeps falling for this kind of transparent hoax, ruminating over all sorts of complex explanations.  But the reality is really quite simple: The overwhelmingly naive, biased, rage-filled leftist “journalists” who infest the nation’s newsrooms quite simply want to believe anything that reflects negatively on President Donald Trump and/or his supporters.

Think of these people as a bunch of Fox Mulders from the old X-Files series, only not quite. Despite Mulder’s constant refrain of “I want to believe,” his character did consistently employ a healthy dose of skepticism in his investigations of “paranormal” activities, many of which ended up being blatant hoaxes. So, despite his desire to “believe” in the story line laid out before him, his healthy skepticism meant he had nothing to apologize for at the end of each episode.

Contrast that to the on-air leftwing activists at CNN and MSNBC, and the anti-Trump fanatics who pose as “editors” and “reporters” at the New York Times and Washington Post, not to mention disgraceful digital sites like the Daily Beast and the Huffington Post. Every time some obvious hoax that would cast negative light on the President or someone associated with him arises, some combination of these media outlets invariably become the ring-leaders of the fake media mob.

Think about it: All of these media outlets still desperately cling to the “Russia Collusion” fantasy, despite public knowledge that the entire thing was concocted by the Hillary Clinton campaign, despite the public knowledge that it is based entirely on a fake “Dossier” compiled by foreign agents who were on the Clinton/DNC payroll, despite the failure of multiple congressional committees and a 21-month-long Special Counsel investigation to turn up a shred of evidence implicating the President in any wrongdoing.

Why is that? Because they want to believe. The hoax fits their preferred narrative, after all. Why be skeptical? Why employ some modicum of journalistic standards, when your personal bias and greatest longings in life have been confirmed?

These and other fake media outlets still treat Christine Blasey Ford as some sort of heroic angel despite the reality that pretty much everything she testified to against Brett Kavanaugh has been proven to have been false. But hey, why let facts get in the way of a good anti-Trump narrative? They want to believe.

These same fake media outlets spent two weeks in January smearing a bunch of Catholic school kids for no real reason other than a few of them were wearing MAGA caps and one of them was – gasp! – smiling! Their smearing of these children was based entirely on an obviously-edited video, even though the full video clearly demonstrated the kids were the ones who had been assaulted and had done nothing wrong.  But the edited version fit the Democrat/media narrative about anyone who supports the President, so they all went with that instead. On Tuesday, the cretins at the Washington Post got named in a $250 million libel suit for those efforts. Hopefully more such filings will follow.

There have been at least two dozen times over the past two years in which either the Times or the Post published stories based solely on “anonymous sources” making some wild claim about either President Trump or Donald, Jr. or someone in the Administration, stories that immediately created an online feeding frenzy from all the other fake media outlets, and stories that within 24-48 hours were proven to be utterly and laughably fake.  Hoaxes. Obvious hoaxes from the start, to anyone with a modicum of skepticism.

But the media wanted to believe those stories and repeated them in a frenzy without the slightest analysis.

The Smollett case stank to high heaven from the very first report. We were asked to believe that, in heavily-liberal Chicago, on a night when the temperature was well below zero, there were these “white supremacist” guys roaming around wearing MAGA caps, looking for some no-account actor to assault. We were asked to believe that these MAGA white guys shouted “this is Trump country” and various racial slurs during their assault, and even had a rope handy to wrap around Smollett’s neck.

Even better, we were asked to believe that Smollett’s Subway sandwich escaped unharmed during the assault, and that Smollett sat around for 45 minutes wearing the rope while he ate said sandwich, and still had it around his neck when the police arrived. Even better than that, we were supposed to believe these MAGA-cap white supremacists had splattered Smollett with bleach even though the temperature was about 30 degrees below the point at which bleach freezes.

An obvious hoax.  A hoax so transparent that Fox Mulder wouldn’t even have wanted to believe it. But the entirety of our fake news media and leadership of the Democrat Party sure as hell did. They all fell for it hook, line and sinker, going out of their way to deploy racially-charged language in their statements and tweets in which they referred to the “victim” in glowing terms.

They wanted to believe because it fit their preferred narrative.

Now that the media’s hero has been revealed as a complete fraud and will go to trail for his crimes, the media will no doubt support his almost-certain efforts to claim that he is actually the real victim here: A victim of depression, a victim of bi-polar disorder, a victim of some sort of mental or emotional malady that he and his lawyers hope will get him sentenced to rehab rather than jail time. And once whatever sentence he receives has been completed, Smollett will no doubt be paid millions by some book publisher and millions more for the movie rights to his “story”, and the fake media will award its hero with gobs of free airtime and print space to promote whatever he’s hawking.

Because that’s what our fake reporters and editors and talking heads do with their favored frauds. They want to believe, and one way or another, they will.

It really is that simple. No further analysis required.

That is all.

The Week in Review: No Good Deed By Donald Trump Goes Unpunished

The Campaign Update Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

President Donald Trump was in both Montana and Florida for rallies on Saturday.  Think about that for a minute:  He’s based in Washington, D.C.  He gets up in the morning, gets his daily security briefing, then hops on Marine One – after chatting with the hostile fake news media for a little bit – which takes him to Joint Base Andrews.

There, he boards Air Force One for the 5-hour flight out to Belgrade, Montana.  He spends an hour speaking to an audience of thousands of Montanans – with thousands more watching on large video screens outside the venue – then he hops back on Air Force One for the 2,000 mile, 5-hour flight down to Pensacola, Florida.

There, he again spends an hour speaking to thousands of Floridians, with a huge crowd of thousands more gathered outside, and then hops back on Air Force One for the 1-hour flight to his resort at Mar-a-Lago.  Presumably, he got some sleep there.

This is a 72 year-old man.  By the way, this is a 72 year-old man who works for free.  He donates his presidential salary every quarter to a different worthy cause, an act of generosity that goes unreported by our fake news media.

While Democrats, their agents in the fake news media and even many of his Republican colleagues bitch and moan about him spending too much time at Mar-a-Lago and the other properties he owns on weekends, the fact of the matter is that most normal men his age and wealth status would be spending all of their time playing golf while the kids take over the family business.  Instead, Donald Trump is spending his time presiding over a nation experiencing a booming economy and relative peace and stability in the world.

For delivering all of that, he has been rewarded with 92% negative fake media coverage, hostile and violent rhetoric coming from all corners of pop culture and the education establishment, unending assassination threats from entertainers and social media, and a special counsel investigation that has now lingered on for 17 months.

Our nation has an odd way of rewarding all this WINNING.

Trump in Montana:  Purple mountains majesties above the fruited plain!

 

 

Let’s go to the Week in Review:

  • It was the week that one of Brett Kavanaugh’s Democrat-recruited accusers admitted not only that she lied to the Senate Judiciary Committee, but that she has in fact never even met Justice Kavanaugh.  If you’re surprised by this, you haven’t been paying attention.
  • It was the week that leftist lawyers for a dozen “migrants” who have never set foot in the United States of America were allowed to file a lawsuit in federal court against a sitting President.  Because, rights, or something.
  • It was the week that a campaign staffer for Democrat Andrew Gillum was arrested for throwing her milk at a group of college Republicans.  Because, hey, this is what the media has empowered her to do.
  • It was the week that multiple staffers for Irish Bob O’Rourke were caught on video illegally using campaign funds to send money to the “migrant caravan” in Mexico, and the Texas news media shamed itself by parrotting the O’Rourke campaign’s talking points and ignoring the video evidence.  Again, if this surprises you, you haven’t been paying attention.
  • It was the week the fake news media completely forgot about that Khashoggi guy, and so did every other American.
  • It was the week that the Democrats and their media agents mounted a coordinated effort to define any effort to criticize the despicable, anti-American, anti-Israel George Soros as “anti-Semitic” hate speech.  Holy crap.
  • It was the week that Democrat Supreme Court Justice Sonya Sotomayor said in one breath that she often would have used a baseball bat on the late Antonin Scalia if she had had one handy, but in the next breath said that “differences don’t stand, necessarily, on ill will.”  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.
  • It was the week this happened:

*sigh*

  • It was the week a former high-profile campaign worker for Barack Hussein Obama was arrested for spraying anti-Semitic graffiti and attempting to burn down a Jewish Synagogue, and the fake news media studiously ignored his connection to the former President:

  • It was the week garbage human being Alec Baldwin got arrested, yet again:

  • It was the week President Trump re-instituted all previous sanctions on Iran and added a few more.  This came after two days of fake media reports that his Administration was backing off of most of them.  Fake news, defined.
  • It was the week that Morning Joe guest pinhead Donny Deutsch actually said that Donald Trump was elected to the presidency because “I don’t think we were ready for a black president.” Quick:  Someone tell Donny that we actually elected a black president, TWICE.  My goodness.
  • It was the week that this happened:

Are there really real, actual Texans who care what John Brennan thinks about our senate race?  Really???
  • It was the week that CNN fake host Don Lemon told America – or, well, the tiny little sliver of leftist America that still watches CNN – that our biggest terror threat is “white men,” and CNN’s management endorsed his statement.  Again, if this surprised you, you need to pay closer attention.
  • It was the week we discovered that MSNBC’s Katy Tur is, um, geographically-challenged:

  • It was the week that CNN morning host Alyisin Camerota’s tiny little brain exploded when a guest didn’t follow the narrative:

  • It was the week that fake pollsters, on the same day in Arizona, gave us results that said Democrat Kyrsten Sinema was leading by 4 points and Republican Martha McSally was leading by 7.  And some of you wonder why I have a negative view of our nation’s polling industry.
  • It was the week that the editorial board at the Houston Chronicle beclowned itself by endorsing Irish Bob O’Rourke in his race against Ted Cruz because O’Rourke plays well with others.  *sigh*
  • It was the week that this happened:

There was so much more, but I’m running out of energy here.  After all, I’m not a 72 year-old guy who works for free.
That is all.

Halloween on Twitter: Political Mayhem, Fake News Zombies and Belly Laughs

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

One of my Twitter followers sent me a private message today asking “how can you vote for some of these Republicans?” Seriously? You have to ask me that?

My answer was very simple: “Because they aren’t Democrats.” That was several hours ago, and I haven’t heard back from this person. Frankly, I expect she will un-follow me by the end of the day.

But look, why would I or any other thinking person ever vote for another Democrat? It’s a serious question. This is a political party that has over the last three years done everything it can to normalize the most reprehensible anti-American behaviors.

From shooting up Republican softball practices to accosting septuagenarians and their wives in restaurants to Antifa goons beating up people on the streets to CNN talk show hosts dog-whistling approval of potential presidential assassins to rounding up women to try to destroy the family and life of a Supreme Court nominee, if they think it might gain them even a momentary political advantage, Democrats are for it no matter how dangerous, destructive, depraved and despicable it might be.

I’m going to vote for that?  Really?  No, thanks.

Nor am I going to cast a vote to take this country back to the overregulated, moribund economy we had prior to November 9, 2016. I’m not going to vote to lop 25% off of the Dow Jones Industrial Average and 2% off of our economic growth rate. I’m not going to vote to put our country back into an irresponsible, un-American agreement with the Mullahs in Iran, or to re-engage us in a Paris “Climate” deal that was really nothing but a global wealth redistribution scheme targeting the American middle class.

Sorry, I’m not down with any of that, and I never will be.

And don’t try to convince me that I can vote for some particular Democrat for congress because he/she would get to Washington and be an “independent voice for Texas” or whatever other nonsense Democrats like Irish Bob O’Rourke are using in their campaign ads.  Give me a break here.  Irish Bob would get to Washington and become the third senator from California.  He’d be Chuck Schumer’s most reliable vote in the U.S. Senate.

Likewise, any Democrat who gets elected to the House of Representatives will be so bullied around by Nancy Pelosi within their first 2 weeks in D.C. that they’ll have literally forgotten where their congressional district even is, much less do anything effective to represent it.

Anyway, that was the bad part of Twitter today, but there was all sorts of fun on that platform as well.  Here follows a selection of the best examples of the day.

 

It’s a great question, and I’m glad Sara Carter asked it:

Speaking of great questions, Mollie Hemingway asks another one here…:

 

Hey, remember when Netflix signed that deal with the Obamas that allows them to produce series for its streaming platform?  Well, guess who their first target is going to be…:

And speaking of things nobody could have possibly seen coming…:

Desperate losing Sen. Claire McCaskill explains who she meant when she claimed in an ad to not be “one of those crazy Democrats,” and the crazy Democrat she specified responds in unambiguous and profane terms.:

Yikes. That particular crazy Democrat has some bite.

Speaking of moves being made by desperate losing Democrats, I give you Ed Donnelly of Indiana.:

There is literally no content too low and despicable for CNN to spew out onto its platform.:

By the way, Mr. Lemon’s boyfriend is white, and radical.

The Alexandria Ocasio Cortez parody account responds, but if you didn’t know it was a parody, you’d totally believe it was something she’d actually said:

 

No day on Twitter could ever be complete without making fun of the Creepy Porn Lawyer.:

Finally, while CNN and MSNBC were misleading their viewers into thinking President Donald Trump was greeted by nothing but protesters and haters on his trip to Pittsburgh to visit with Synagogue shooting survivors, you had to be on Twitter to see the truth:

Just another day of highs, lows and belly laughs on Twitter.

That is all.

Fresh out of new Narratives, the New York Times Does a Remake of “Impeachment”

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Ok, so, that Kavanaugh smear didn’t work, so the fake news media needs a new narrative. – Meet the new narrative, same as the old narrative.  The “Kavanaugh is a gang rapist!” narrative was a miserable failure; the “Taylor Swift endorses Phil Bredesen!” narrative crashed up on the shoals of disastrous poll results; the “Trump misreported his taxes!” narrative held public attention for about, well, no time at all; and the “It’s gonna be a BLUE WAVE!!!!!” narrative is showing clear signs of being more like a Tidy Bowl toilet flushing.  What’s the fake news media to do?

Why, make up a new narrative, that’s what.  The trouble is, the fake news media is a lot like Hollywood:  It cycles through new scripts so rapidly that it has run fresh out of ideas.  So the obvious answer?  Do a remake!

That’s right:  Just as Hollywood recently brought us completely unnecessary remakes of films like “Ben Hur” and “A Star is Born,” the newsfakers at the New York Times this morning are treating us to a completely unnecessary remake of “Is Trump on a Collision Course With Impeachment?” . Isn’t that wonderful?

*sigh*

With Robert Mueller systematically winding down his “investigation”, Democrat hopes of gaining a majority in either house of congress rapidly fading, and exactly ZERO legitimate justification for removing a president from office having been identified by Mueller or anyone else, this reboot of the “impeachment” narrative will also have a very short shelf life.  So expect the newsfakers at the New York Times and the rest of our fake news media to be bringing us yet another narrative sequel, reboot or remake soon, because that’s all they got left.

Elsewhere, Andy McCarthy, one of just two writers at The National Review still worth reading (the other being the great Victor Davis Hanson), has a piece out this weekend titled “Who Will Save the Democrats From Their Leaders?”.  In the piece, McCarthy systematically disassembles the utterly corrupt Eric Holder piece by piece in a way that is a true work of art.  It’s a fantastic read that I highly recommend to everyone.

Here is one outstanding passage to whet your appetite:

“But if there is anyone who knows about “going low,” it is Mr. Holder. He is, after all, the first attorney general in American history to be held in contempt of Congress.

And low is exactly where Holder — along with Hillary “No Civility Unless We Win” Clinton and the rest of the social-justice arriére-garde — has taken a once-great political party.

In a better time, we would not be talking about Eric Holder. He would be dismissed as a fringe radical who endorses forcible, extortionist tactics against political adversaries (and then, in familiar Holder fashion, spends the next day pretending he didn’t say what he said). In a better time, we would be asking why anyone would care what Eric Holder says, about anything.

But today, Holder is important. Today, he is a mainstream Democratic leader.”

Go read it.  Trust me, it’s worth 5 minutes of your time.

And this from the #NeverTrump fantasy world of fake conservatism…Washington Post pet fake conservative lapdog Kathleen Parker has a new piece up this morning in which she blames President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) for her and other Americans drinking too much alcohol.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Here’s a quote:

“Lately, at least from my perch on the porch, the evening cocktail has become less an aperitif than a medicinal slug made necessary by the alternative of ripping off my face. To bear witness to These Times In Which We Live is to go insane, join a cult or pour your favorite poison.”

Ms. Parker obviously has a severe aversion to all this #WINNING.

Oh, hey, that’s just how Joe is. – And while we’re at it, let’s not leave Joe Biden out of all the Trump-bashing fun.  Creepy Ol’ Joe had this to say about the President of the United States of America (something Joe Biden will never become) on Saturday:

“He is just trashing American values the way he talks about people, the way he makes fun of people, the way he denigrates folks.”

Ok, now, to refresh everyone’s memories, this is the exact same Joe Biden who:

  • Gleefully participated in the slandering of Robert Bork;
  • Cheerfully helped organize the smearing of Clarence Thomas;
  • Said Barack Hussein Obama was a great African American presidential candidate because he’s “clean” and “articulate”;
  • Said that “In Delaware, the largest growth of population is Indian Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.” and
  • Has spent the last 30 years getting caught on film creepily fondling and otherwise violating the personal space of all manner of women and even Chris Coons’s teenage daughter.

Someone needs to remind Mr. Biden that he lives in a very, very fragile glass house, and throwing rocks from within it is a really bad idea.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Trump Spoke the Truth, the Media Went Nuts

The Campaign Update Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The most outstanding feature of this week was the media going nuts.  What was so interesting about it to me was that they went nuts every time President Trump told the truth

For example, at the formal swearing-in of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the President told the truth about the fact that he had been subjected to a shameful smearing organized by the Democrats.  An absolute, unarguable fact.  The media went nuts.

At his rally in Ohio Friday night, Trump told the truth about the unarguable fact that Robert E. Lee was a great general.  Simply a fact of history.  The media went nuts.

Upon the release of Pastor Andrew Brunson from a Turkish prison, the President tweeted this absolute true statement:

“There was NO DEAL made with Turkey for the release and return of Pastor Andrew Brunson. I don’t make deals for hostages. There was, however, great appreciation on behalf of the United States, which will lead to good, perhaps great, relations between the United States & Turkey!”

Not surprisingly, the media went nuts.

Of course, the reality here is the media and their Democrat masters just can’t deal with reality.  Trump keeps winning, they keep losing, and they go nuts because they don’t know what else to do at this point.  Combine all that losing with the fact this was the week that their precious “blue wave” fantasy began to show signs of slipping away, and it’s amazing they all haven’t been committed to an asylum by now.

But hey, it’s just a matter of time.  Let’s go to the Week in Review:

 

It was the week Cocaine Mitch McConnell out-maneuvered Cryin’ Chuckie Schumer yet again, securing a deal in which the Senate confirmed en mass no less than 15 new federal judges to the bench in exchange for calling the Senate into recess so that desperate Democrats could go home to campaign.

It was the week Hurricane Michael devastated the Florida panhandle, and Democrat Senator Bill Nelson turned the tragedy into a fundraising opportunity.

It was the week that Al Gore told us all we only have 10 more years to save the planet, a talking point he has used every year for the last 30 years, and will continue to use every year for the rest of his life.

It was the week that the Creepy Porn Lawyer and Irish Bob O’Rourke formed a fundraising partnership, because apparently Irish Bob just can’t run a senate campaign with only $60 million on hand.

It was the week that an American president secured the release of a hostage from Turkey without trading a bunch of terrorist prisoners held here in the U.S. and without shipping planeloads of cash to a hostile government.  Just one more element of the un-American legacy of Barack Hussein Obama gone.

It was the week that Taylor Swift became a leftist hero by endorsing Tennessee Democrat senate candidate Phil Bredesen, and Bredesen’s campaign immediately fell completely apart.

It was the week that Kanye West became a leftist enemy by breaking bread with President Donald Trump, and every talking head on CNN and MSNBC went into full panic mode.  The anti-Kanye rhetoric coming out of those two fake news outlets sounded like something out of a 1940s Klan rally.

It was the week that Judge Brett Kavanaugh became Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and there wasn’t a damn thing any Democrat on earth could do about it.

It was the week that the Democrats and the fake news media dropped Christine Ford like a hot potato to literally no one’s surprise.

It was the week that the Pantsuit Princess and Eric Holder openly declared themselves in favor of escalating violence from the American left.

It was the week that Nikki Haley announced she would be leaving her UN post at the end of the year, and every Trump supporter breathed a huge sigh of relief when he made it clear that Bushite globalist Dina Powell would not be her successor.

It was the week we found out that the Arizona Democrat senate candidate thinks her state is “the meth lab of America.”

Finally, It was the week that all the pollsters who have spent the last 9 months doing their best to convince us all a “blue wave” began to panic and warn their favored Democrats that hey, uh, well, ummmm…maybe that’s not really gonna happen after all.

Man, nobody could’ve seen that one coming.  Oh, wait…

That is all.

Trump Speaks the Truth, Media Goes Nuts, Dog Bites Man

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

When the President speaks the truth, the fake news media gets a huge case of the vapors.:  President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) had this to say at the formal swearing-in ceremony for new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh last night:

“On behalf of our nation, I want to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the terrible pain and suffering you have been forced to endure,” Trump began. “Those who step forward to serve our country deserve a fair and dignified evaluation, not a campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception. What happened to the Kavanaugh family violates every notion of fairness, decency, and due process. In our country, a man or a woman must always be presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.”

Naturally, given that none of our fake news outlets in the national #fakenews establishment media reported on any of the myriad outright lies told by Christine Ford in her smear of Justice Kavanaugh, they all cranked up their outrage machines immediately after the President made his remarks.  They must keep up the narrative they’ve established, after all.  Some things never change.

This is a learning moment.  Many of you who don’t really “get” Donald Trump wonder why he felt the need to make what you perceive to be such “combative” remarks last night, or why he chose to go after Ford’s obvious lying at his rally event in Tennessee last week.  Well, to understand why, just observe how the fake news media reacted to it, and how they uniformly covered for Ms. Ford throughout the entire weeks-long process.

Readers of the Campaign Update are extremely smart and oh-so-attractive people, the literal cream at the top of our society’s milkshake.  So you are exceedingly well-informed.  But millions of other Americans are not so lucky.  Tens of millions of our brethren and sistren (if we are allowed to even say that anymore under our new zillion-fake gender rules our fake media have helped establish) are not so lucky.  To the extent they consume “news”, these Americans get it from fake places like ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post and other big city newspapers who today get 95% of their content from one of those other outlets or the very biased Associated Press.

Thus, before the President went off on Ms. Ford last week, those millions of Americans had never heard a thing about the massive holes in her testimony or the outright lies she leveled against a man who had been through 6 prior exhaustive FBI background checks without so much as a jaywalking incident showing up on his record.  There were still millions of people treading water in that pool of fake media-fed ignorance last night.

So the President had two opportunities during which he was speaking live to at least some portion of the American public, and he took those opportunities to tell the truth to the American people.  Which of course is an act that always scandalizes a fake news media establishment whose overriding goal in life is to avoid the truth at all costs in favor of the Democrat Party’s preferred narrative.

Gosh, nobody could’ve seen this one coming…oh, wait…:

I’ve gotten quite a few notes again in the past week asking what I’m thinking about the outcome of the midterms.  Honestly, my outlook hasn’t changed since January:  The Democrats will gain 10-15 net seats in the House, but not get to a majority, and the Republicans will gain 4-5 net seats in the Senate.  And right on cue, the same pollsters who were chanting “blue wave, blue wave, blue wave” back in January are now starting to sound the alarm to their favored Democrats that gosh, maybe, just maybe, that might not all be coming about for them.

If this pattern sounds familiar, I refer you back to the 2016 elections, in which we saw the exact same pattern take place.

Because, as we discussed here a few weeks back, neither the media or the pollsters have figured out exactly who the “Trump voters” are, and have real no desire to do so.

 

Oh, hey, isn’t that the guy the fake news media all told us was getting fired two weeks ago? – Why yes, yes, it was.  It was Rod Rosenstein, our perpetually oily Deputy Attorney General, not only still in his job but climbing up the steps to board Air Force One along with Chief of Staff John Kelly.  That’s right – the very same John Kelly to whom your fake news media assured you Rosenstein was headed over to the White House to hand his formal resignation (in order to spare himself the indignity of being fired) two weeks ago today.

At an impromptu press conference earlier in the day, President Trump appeared to put to rest any thought that Rosenstein was about to be fired, telling reporters “We actually get along. I’m not making any changes. You’d be the first to know.”

So, what’s going on here?  Why is the President seemingly protecting the guy who conspired with James Comey to set their big buddy Robert Mueller up as Special Counsel last year?  I think the obvious answer is that the President now has Rosenstein right where he wants him.

Think about it:  What has been happening the last few weeks?  The systematic winding down of the Mueller investigation.  Why is that happening?  Well, the obvious answer is that, other than a tax fraud case from a decade ago against Paul Manafort and several process crimes that have nothing to do with the Special Counsel’s supposed focus on the Democrat/media-invented “Russia Collusion” fantasy, there is no “there” there.

But there is a second big answer that is becoming increasingly apparent with each passing day:  Rosenstein and Mueller really, really, really, REALLY do not want the FISA-related documents the President ordered to be declassified three weeks ago to be made public.  I keep reading some conservative writers speculating that Rosenstein is opposing the declassification effort to “protect the institutions”, i.e., the DOJ and the FBI, which would no doubt be embarrassed by the full revelation of the crimes that were being committed in obtaining those fraudulent FISA warrants to spy on the Trump Campaign, the Trump Transition Team, and the Trump presidency.

But at this point it seems more and more obvious that Rosenstein isn’t just protecting his institutions, he’s protecting himself.  After all, he affixed his signature to at least one of those four FISA warrants, a reality that keeps somehow getting lost in the “reporting” that goes on in our fake news media.

At this point, after having the first 21 months of his Administration being held hostage to the dark cloud of all these false allegations, I think President Trump would be perfectly happy to keep Rosenstein in place until Mueller has wrapped up his Spanish Inquisition-style “investigation”, and wait until the mid-term elections have come and gone before taking final action to clean out the participants in the anti-Trump cabal who remain at DOJ and the FBI even today.

So, when the President says that he and Rosenstein “get along” just fine these days, you should believe him.  Because when Donald Trump says he’s getting along just fine with someone, that means he’s getting along with that person on his own terms.

You don’t have to believe me on that – you can go read his book.

That is all.

OMG, Y’all, Taylor Swift is all, Like, Political and Stuff Now

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

OMG, you guys, Taylor’s, like, terrified of Marsha Blackburn and stuff.:  Pop singer Taylor Swift came out of the political closet on Sunday, endorsing two Democrats running for governor and U.S. senator in Tennessee.  Which is just, like, totally shocking and even maybe, like, surprising or something, you know?  I mean, reeeeaaaalllly.

Perhaps noting the irony of endorsing two old white guys when a woman is running in the Senate race on the GOP side, Swift’s publicists wrote this tidy quote for her to recite:  “As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn,” Swift wrote, elaborating that “her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me.”

Because, you know, Marsha Blackburn is for all that scary stuff like letting babies be born alive, protecting the second amendment to the constitution and trying to exert some semblance of control on federal spending.  Scary stuff like that.

OMG, Taylor’s, like, so totally intellectual and like, deep and stuff, you guys.  No word yet if all the SJWs and other leftist freaks to whom she was appealing will now attack her for the fact that the Dem she endorsed for Governor, the cravenly dishonest Phil Bredeson, said on Friday that he would have voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court (Pro tip:  that’s a lie), but it seems likely.

*sigh*

Well, we can scratch her off the list of potential Supreme Court nominees. – Right after her fake news channel spent weeks telling us all that Brett Kavanaugh can’t possibly serve on the Supreme Court because he drank too much in high school, CNN’s Taylor Swift-like fake reporter Caitlin Collins was revealed to have sent some decidedly homophoby-sounding tweets when she was in college.

Of course, everyone at CNN circled the wagons around one of their own, abandoning the puritanish stance they’d taken on Kavanaugh and informing their viewers that Ms. Collins’ unfortunate Twittering was just the hijinks of a poor college girl who didn’t know any better and she’s all, like, changed and other touchy-feely stuff now.

For her part, Collins apologized in a Tweet, because of course she did:

Hey, maybe she can get Taylor Swift to endorse her apology.  That seems to carry a lot of weight with the “in” crowd.

This was not his finest hour. – Speaking of SJWs and other leftist freaks, Former Astronaut Scott Kelly issued an apology to all of them who flooded his Twitter feed with nasty, obscene messages after Kelly had quoted and praised… wait for it…Winston Churchill in a tweet earlier in the day.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.:

For the record, were it not for Sir Winston’s incredible leadership and courage during World War II, we’d all be speaking German and shouting “sieg heil!” to some Nazi dictator every day.  But, of course, with the nitwits in the American left now starting to emulate the tactics employed by the Nazis during the 1930s, the ravages of political correctness dictate that former astronauts can’t acknowledge such truths anymore, as Mr. Kelly’s pathetic apology clearly shows.

“Did not mean to offend by quoting Churchill.” *sigh*.  I promise never to offend my readers again by quoting Scott Kelly.

Shame on you, Ruth. – In his first day on the job, Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh hired an African American law clerk.  Why is this significant?  Because Justice Kavanaugh, with that single hiring, has now hired exactly the same number of African Americans as Ruth Bader Ginsburg has employed during her 25 years on the Supreme Court and her 13 years on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals before that.

So, to put this in simple terms that even leftists can comprehend:

Ginsburg – 38 years, 1 black law clerk.

Kavanaugh – 1 day, 1 black law clerk.

The more you know.

Hey, found those WMDs yet, Colin? – Not to be overshadowed by some pop star, Colin Powell, whose dishonesty as UN Ambassador helped involve the U.S in a 17-year war in Afghanistan and a decade-long debacle in Iraq, somehow feels that he enjoys the moral authority to go off on President Donald Trump and his foreign policy.  The unbridled hubris of this man is truly breathtaking.

From our Once You’ve Seen This You Can Never Un-See It file…:

Hey, at least the Pantsuit Princess didn’t wear one of her favorite hospital gowns to Octoberfest, but what in the hell is Slick Willie thinking?

“Go on, take the money and run…”

So, when you’ve just made a cool $1.5 – $2 mil in a couple of GoFundMe accounts that were funded by a bunch of suckers who thought they were helping with your legal bills, but your lawyers publicly swore to the Senate Judiciary Committee that they were working for free, it’s time to just close up shop and ride off into the sunset, right?

Right.

That is all.
